"You know the best three point shooting percentage in the league. They have a really good defensive team. They have the ability to play different styles of ball, which I think is really important. I mean, they need to go bigger. You know, they have guys. They have Zuba. They have surgery possible. Who's you know injured right now, but he'll be coming back. Then they have you know the capability to play smaller and faster if they want to use, you know Nick Batum tomorrow, Marcus Morris in the small ball five and run out there with a couple of guards. So to me. I think the Clippers are definitely the most dangerous and I'm also not sleeping on the Utah jazz. You know, They've been this great all season for a reason. They get it done on both ends of the ball. They have. You know a legitimate don't go to guy and Donovan Mitchell, who's having the best season of his career statistically, and is the guy that they, you know, kind of go to in the fourth quarter of close games to get get buckets for them, So I think both of those teams are No legitimate threat to the Lakers. But at the end of the day, like you said, if LeBron and Anthony Davis, sir, you know, it's kind of like in that situation. If those guys they're fully healthy, um not that there's not a lot of tough competition for them, but it's really tough to bet against them. If they're if they're fully healthy and good to go One more thing. I'm curious about your thoughts on. Ah, they play the Mavericks tonight, and I saw Mark Cuban say that Luca and Chris up sporting goods have had dust ups. And he compared it to a jet. And Dirk, If you remember when we first got jet Dirk was not a fancy did not like him. They weren't best friends at the beginning, but they grew to like each other. Do you think it's interesting that Cubans even putting this out there publicly considering they're already been sort of trade rumors around poor Zynga's and that fit whether it's due to KPs injuries or whatnot has not exactly clicked exactly the way they would want it to Yeah, that zingre question. I do think it's very interesting. I was definitely scratching my head a little bit when when I first saw that quote, because, like you said, there's already been a lot of speculation about you know, everything gets his long term future in Dallas. I mean, Lucas, you know, obviously the guy he's he's the guy they're gonna build around going forward. Unfortunately, up to this point. I don't think there's Angus is really proven mainly like you said, because of injuries in the fact that he seems to be in and out of the rotation so much. I just don't think he's solidified himself. The You know the definite number two option there. And Dallas moving forward, and I think obviously of him in Luca, we're best friends and you know, behind the scenes, Luca was going to be campaigning for him moving forward That would make a difference in terms of how How his future was going to unfold in Dallas. The fact that they might not necessarily be on the same page off the court combined with the fact that you know we're not sure what they're sealing is on the court. I do think that that could factor into No Dallas is plans moving forward whether or not they entertain offers for him or whether or not they're looking to keep him as the second piece moving forward. I think if he's able to stay healthy for the rest of this season in the postseason That will be a you know, good measuring that kind of for Dallas to see how they how they do when they're both out there. But you know to me it's definitely something to keep an eye on as they say, where there's smoke. Often there's fire, and I think this could be something. No down the road where it turns into a situation. Go appreciate your time this morning. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Yeah. Thanks for having me on man. Appreciate it.

"P F. N draft insiders. Show. And when it comes to the the draft, Trey, you got some news yesterday. Well, we all got the news yesterday. I mean, it was, you know, that had been this kind of movement over the last three or four years and this this high up in the first round of the draft. And then to see these two moves just go one after the other was really remarkable. Number one the headline. I guess the San Francisco moving up to number three. I think the easy read on that situation is they believe that their future QB is going to be there whomever that is. Who do you think they have in mind with that pick? Is it fields Well, it's interesting right? Because there's all these conspiracy theories and trying to trace the, uh it's like the J J Watt mitochondria tweet. You know, we're trying to figure out what it means. For example, Justin Fields has been Working in concert in his camps for years, so people in making out was that we got to be just a field. Well, then we've also had very well. You know, Kyle Shannon likes guys with strong upper torsos and the better, really natural throwers. Well, that's probably Mac Jo. You know, And then there's the tray lance theory that he liked people that he can develop that are big and strong athlete, So maybe it's Trey Lancer. Nobody knows except the 40 Niners, but they think they feel comfortable that whichever quarterback they really like, is going to be that there's no other reason to make that trade for that. Unless you're moving up to get a quarterback, so Yeah. Yeah. So you think they're honing in on one guy who you think they're comfortable with whomever it might be? I think they have to have a good idea, right? Well, if you're making a trade like that, you're giving up the two future first round picks. You have to have an idea that the specific player you're targeting is gonna be there. Right? Right. Look, it's a two this point. It's almost a mortal lock. We let Lawrence is going one All indications are Zach Wolf is going one number 22 jets. So then it's got to be okay which water acted in like the best they know it's the draft really starts in three is the Anakin and everybody likes to use because we know what Jacksonville's doing. We're pretty sure we know what the Jets are doing. Must. There's another monster tried to come up and someone tries to lightly Brock San Francisco on take Zack Wilson. Or maybe the quarterback that the Niners are looking for, But yeah, but all indications are the first two picks of this draft are going to be those two guys in the entry comes in it. Assed Farrah Zach Wilson goes, the Pro day thing may have caused us many ways is almost the trade yesterday on and I know it's There's no defense and, you know he's in shorts and a T shirt two and gum or whatnot. Um, but there is something about like that level of talent that you could see right there. And I guess it's from all the analysts who have trust to have been talking about But talent he possessed to just sort of see it out there right in front of you with nobody else around. I mean, how much are you on the Zach Wilson? I've trained right now I'm on the back walls and hype cream for every reason, except his project like I The Pro day thing I'll never understand. You know, I'm old enough to remember when JaMarcus Russell told was said by everyone had the greatest pro day of all time. I'm remember Kyle Boller's pro Day. Oh, my God! Look at that guy's arm. It's amazing. Remember how excited people were when Johnny Manziel showed up at his pro day and cam Oh, shorts and people were waving brooms, Adam and he lit the place up so Look, the pro days have some value and for different players at smaller schools. They have way more value than the folks that are on TV every week that are playing in actual games, So the pro day thing is really interesting sort of product. That we have now as a people put in their quotes as a data point, yes, Data points, But my my my philosophy is if you weren't sure about a guy on tape. And then you go to his pro day you're like, Wow, You're terrible at your job. Like if the thing that decides one way, the other for a guy you have all this tape on is a pro day. And you're a really bad evaluated. Yeah. I mean, I guess it's not a perfect science, right? We found that out Everything in corporate? Yeah, look, but you're right. Grafting is those inexact science There is. Some people are always trying to get as much input is again I get that part of it. But like you have Ah, full season of tape on Jack Wilson 2020, which was great. You have 2019 cake, which was mediocre. So is the deciding factor between those two years gonna be him throwing while chewing gum. As you said, with no defense to guys Perfect conditions that he's worked out with for years. Because if it is, I don't know why you're evaluating talent. Robin Ledbury talking to Trey Wingo of pro football network here on CBS Sports Radio. Let's talk about some of the ripple effects of the trades from yesterday, going back to San Francisco for a second. They say that Jimmy Garoppolo is going to remain There course much nudge. Yeah, the actual quote that Adam had was Jimmy's Our guy. He's our guy this year? Well, this year is a really big fat qualifier right? Like it's very easy to say that now much in the same way before training camp begins every team that has quarterback question Marshal Robiskie is our guy, you know, and then They started three. You know when he was pulled, so I mean, it's the easiest thing in the world to say he's your guy and then added the qualifier. He's our guy this year, which means we're gonna draft the rookie to replace him and hopefully developing slowly over 12 months. You think they are? Won him as the placeholder quarterback, or do you think they might be? You know, seeing what his value is on the market as well. If they'd be crazy if they weren't seeing is value in the market, right? I mean, so I always thought this is lying Season in the NFL, right? There's no other way around it. It's all counterespionage and subterfuge and smoke screens and People say all the things that they think people want to hear to encourage them to talk to them about what the products they have, or the picks that they want. I mean that that's what this time of the year is. So you can say anything and you won't be held accountable because you can always say Well, we weren't expecting this to happen All we didn't expect this person to be available so You say all the platitudes that you want, because the other part of it is. Let's say they draft their quarterback in San Francisco, and he's not as good as everybody thinks he is. Which, by the way happens almost every year. With these quarterbacks go back over the last five or six years and look at the hit return rate. Okay, It's not great. So maybe this guy tanks and then you will have to go back to Jimmy G and you say, See, I told you he was our guy. We said it from the beginning, so everything that is said From Executive scouts. GM talent evaluators personnel Guys have to be parsed through every single filter to understand what they're really saying, and, more importantly, what they're not saying. But to your point, I mean, there was speculation that both the Dolphins and the Eagles were taking a quarterback again up until I think yesterday. Which would you take? What what Miami did as it least somewhat of a vote of confidence around to go below. I would, and I'm happy that the Dolphins are doing this because there's no way much same way. I don't know why the Eagles feel like Jalen hurts is going to be there, guy going forward, and maybe he isn't. That's why they brought it Flacco, but Like the sample size for Jalen hurts into of this past year is extremely small. And two of was coming off That massive hip injury is senior year now are not seen your final year in Alabama. So you don't have enough data but make a definitive statement or decision one way, the other What I see from Miami. Is that true? Some masterful maneuvering with Chris career, the GM and the head coach. They have two first rounders this year to second rounders in the third round. Those were all that's five picks one of the top 81. 2022. They have a first rounder, a second rounder and two thirds, including the conflict that picked up to San Francisco and the 2023. They have two first rounders, a second round pick in the third round pick. They have stockpiled themselves with picks Now you could say Yes, absolutely. That means they're back to a time by law. Or if you want to go down the conspiracy theory, Rabbit hole you could say, Wow, Let's assume that all this stuff gets cleared up with Shawn Watson. And it's not what people are thinking It is. Look at all the ammunition we have to maybe go get him. I have no idea that's going to happen and get cleared up before the draft. There's two ways to look at that because they had been actively thinking about that before. So now, if they don't pull the Shawn Watson trade, they could say Now this is us believing into a look at where perhaps these pics we're gonna build around him. Or if it gets screwed up, they can say, See, this is why we did this. So we had the ammo to go get a proven commodity that Shawn Watson Having Lindbergh talking to Trey Wingo, former coast of ESPN is Gold Lick, and we go SportsCenter NFL live..

"CBS SPORTS BRACKETOLOGY Expert Jerry Let me first ask the old upset Ohio State Orel Roberts defeating Ohio State yesterday. Obviously two people who are hopping in on March madness and filling out their brackets. That's a shocking Crazy upset as somebody who follows this closely. How big an upset was you? How was it? How surprised were you? Oh, I think it There's only been a handful of times that a 15 is beating the two. So it's a pretty big upset. Uh, you know, having watched the game I mean, Oral Roberts. Just play played out of their minds. They were they shot fantastic from three, which is a big factor in, you know, equalizing games between you know teams with despair it talent. But they also shot free throws very well. They're the best free throw shooting team in the country, and they just they played with the moxie and some hardened some smarts and You've got to have some things come together for you in order for this kind of a thing to happen and and it did, and they they deserve a lot of credit because they had a A great plan and execute it well. What does it say for the big 10? Because that's one of the things I saw that it was both Ohio State and Purdue that lost. I mean, I had heard, you know, the big 10 was the top conference but kind of a blow to t That thought process. Was it yesterday. Well, sir, you know that because everybody measures you by what you do in the tournament. The regular season doesn't mean anything. But the big 10 was the best conference in the regular season top to bottom. Big 12 with the best conference. If you just look at the top, and but both of those leaks were outstanding. The big 12 Nick all their teams won yesterday, everybody they have seeded in the top half of the bracket in this tournament, which shows you how strong they were at the time. The big Tendo. You know, you lose Ohio State and Purdue. Um, you know, produce the young team so they could have been vulnerable when they were put Ohio State. Certainly Isa Black. I, um for the league. You know, Jerry when it comes to the tournament, Obviously, it's not new that crazy upsets will happen. There's always chaos. There's always tomorrow, right? But do you think it will be crazier in a sense this year? Because one of the circumstances of how this season unfold? It wasn't a typical season. There were breaks and everything like that. And two because you know some of the the teams. We think about it as March Madness powerhouses either didn't make it at all. Or or weren't that level of team this year? Does that open it up for it to be an even crazier? March madness as far as the you know, upsets and which seeds are advancing? Not necessarily Um it's in there will be no way to know Because E mean this is our only Pandemic shortened season ever. So whatever happens this year is happening in a vacuum. You can't compare it to other You can't just compared to other years and say what we had a pandemic. You know, just one year is not a friend. So it's um There's just no way to know, but there was no reason to expect Necessarily more. Or less upsets this year than in any typical year. But you know, each year lives on its own, so we'll see what happens. Robin Ledbury talking to Jerry Palm, CBS Sports Bracketology Expert Where it was there, any team that that stood out to you on the first day of full action, you know that that reinforced maybe some of the the belief she already held about them. The belief that already you will Illinois, I guess, but they're playing the 16. Ft. Right. Drexel? Um, that region. Was reasonably talkie at boy Tennessee really laid an egg. Oregon State is obviously continued to talk play from the Pac 12 tournament. Um, e. I mean, there were some results that were surprising to me. I thought Michigan State would do better against the U. C l. A team that isn't hole, but you know, they had an 11 point lead and blew it. I thought Wisconsin who really struggled to beat the better teams in the Big 10. They were all in eight or nine. I want to say against the top five teams in the Big 10 this year really took it to North Carolina. On so I, You know, I think you know you, you look it. Teams like North Texas and teams like Wisconsin. You see that being old really helps because those are a couple of pretty old teams that were able to Win games. That may be. Some didn't think they could. Meanwhile, Gonzaga plays today. You know the team that comes in undefeated the favorite to win the whole thing. How much separation do you think there is between Gonzaga and the rest of the pack, even including the other? Number one seats. Not that much. I mean, they've been the dominant team in college basketball this year, but Baylor was right with him for the longest time until they had a covert pause and came out of it and took a couple of losses. Afterwards, but still No, they're playing big 12 teams every you know twice a week. So you know it was unrealistic to think that Baylor would go undefeated through its conference this year on Illinois has been Outstanding the last month or so of this season. So you know, did tag is a favorite. They should be the favorite, but there are definitely challengers out there. Who do you have in your final four? Um, I still have good dagga, Illinois and Alabama. Also ahead. Ohio State So that blew up pretty early. You weren't alone in that one. You didn't buy it the whole South region of my brackets on fire. I didn't do so bad and Midwest region..

"Admired your tenacity as a player what you brought to the game, and I'm sure you know you're following this season. Very closely. Have you ever seen you know it seems like it's a daily debate. Have you ever seen an M V P debate take on a life of its own the way it has this year. Thanks. Thanks for having me appreciate. Appreciate me. Well, I mean, nbp race that's always every year. You know it changes and it depend on Your perspective. What a game and who you see fit to do so, But every year, you know you have, you know you have a group of guys that is very capable of winning that award. So, um For me. I know it's a regular season awards. I wish they held it out a little bit longer to the finals. But you have you're always gonna have LeBron James. And then you have Jolan be have Johannes. As well. Is James Harden. So, um, I guess whoever comes out, you know better stats during the regular season always is that award You know, you talk about playing through the finals. Obviously, LeBron James said he believes he should have more than four and I agree with that assessment and if it was through the finals that that probably would be the case. You went against him back in the day. You also coached him right with the Cleveland Cavaliers as an assistant. So what is it? You know that that if you wanted to describe the impact, or the value that he brings to a team in as clear away as you could, How would How would you put that? Well, he's a winner and, uh, With when you think of LeBron James like and been a teammate. You just No. It's about a championship experience and your championship. Um Expectation goes up right away, and that's one thing you know as a player playing against him and just send them over time. He's Every year. He continued to get better and better, most captaincy guys on the decline, but for him, he's continued to get better and better. And when you have him on your team is nothing but championship expectations. You think continue to get better and better. I mean, how much does it stand out to you that he's doing this like as somebody you played 12 years in the NBA is a long time right to see him. Do this in your 18 at 36 years old. I mean, that's a credit to him. I mean, he he takes great care of his body. Hey, puts in the work in the off season and he was quoted a while, um, while ago saying that, you know Of basketball. This is 365 days. Where Ah lot of guys cry. Take time off the vacation and relax. Let your body you know, uh Recuperate. He's doing that. But he's also get that work in, uh, you know, he spent over you know a million dollars on his body, and that's what trainers, um, on his vacation time. And just put the working constantly and that's where he has a leg up on Ah lot of the players where he's always Thank you even breathe a basketball and trying to stay ahead of the game. Robin Ledbury talking to James Posey, 12 Year NBA event multiple time NBA champs writer and host of the podcast on basketball news dot com. You know it's interesting. You look at your career and and when you played it and what you were known for. Obviously, you know, a disruptive player on the on the defensive side of the ball competitors When you watch the modern game and what some of these guys air doing now, I'm sure you saw some of that evolution while you were playing, and it's only gone. Further now, like where guys were taking shots from on the floor. You know the Damian Lillard's of the world. How difficult is it to guard the modern MBA? Considering the level of talent on the offensive end what these guys are capable of? And and the way the game is officiated. I mean, the Ganges he has evolved. If you think about sort of what I played. If you're scoring 100 points, it was like, Wow. But now teams are doing it. You know, night in and night out, and with three point balls, you know, they figure the three point shot. It's just a way to go. And so you see a high value with three take it. And now you have very capable shooters that to shoot from deep And the score is going up. So with with bad day said defensively, you know, you probably can't get a physical. You don't have those games where you're fighting just to score, you know. 80 or 90 points now, you know, Like I said, that's probably half time score. Um, but just with you know, you got to get the players credit because they're put the time in and just evolution of the three point ball. Players are putting time is shooting three and also the they have great candle now compared to being where multiple guys to put the ball on the floor and get to the basket and make plays. You just get it had to get those those players credit for doing so. No one seen that That sums all that up. I think right now is the Brooklyn Nets where they've got, you know, obviously when once he gets back from injury, Kevin Durant Kyrie Irving James Harden you had mentioned Harden before. I mean, as I said, before, you've seen it all in the NBA. You seen, you know big threes. You You played with one in Boston and Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Barnett. But given the level of talent, that's that's on Brooklyn right now and the way the game is played today. I know they lost last night, but just how good do you think that team's gonna be when it's a fully formed product? Every night. Every night. They give this a chance. Once they had those three guys on the floor. You have three guys can't quote capable of scoring 30 points. So we think by that's 90 points right there and itself, Um Officially, you know they had the tying up a few things and also depends on the match up. You know, you figure enough in a playoff, so they come against, but they have enough firepower to do so carries playing great Katie You know, get him back. You know what he's capable of doing and James Harden sister trade. He's just been playing unbelievable basketball, um leading team in assists and also scoring and Just been a total team player over there, so I look forward to seeing them doing a lot of damage in the East. But when it comes to match up, um there's not too many teams after they actually match him. Shot for shot in Wait for points. How would you go about doing that? Strategically, I mean, obviously, you know, you have your experience as a player to draw from and how you would choose to guard one of those guys if you're on them, But then your experiences the coaches..

"Rocket. Can you know the NC double A tournament is upon us. It's almost, uh, You know, it's surreal that It's been a year since Cove. It hit us and everything that transpired and, of course, the tournament canceled last year, but it also feels like The way it came around this time of year. Obviously, it was different than in previous years, so to discuss I'm joined now by Vin Creasy, Fox Sports and FS one college basketball analyst. Yes. And why studio analysts and then I'm curious from your perspective because you're in it and you're following this very closely did the progression the path The tournament. How much different did it feel to you this season? Well, Robert, I think the word that you just said, surreal sums it up it. It almost feels like it's been three or four seasons. In one as as short as it is, I know that that sounds silly, but If you kind of go and look back, it hasn't been typical at all. And I'm not just talking about the cove. It restrictions and quarantines and positive verse, negative testing and all of that protocol. I mean, If you look at who our projected top 10 fumes were in the nation. In November. How we were talking about Michigan State How we were talking about John Calipari's Kentucky team, How we were talking about Duke. And then you had that mid December surge of quarantines and pauses and teams being out of the loop. And then you got into conference play. And then obviously there were so many pauses leading into now quarantine You know you have you have teams right now, Robin matter so hot at every level Mid May's your high level like you look atyou con you look at what Rick Pitino's doing at Iona. You look at Rutgers. You look it. You know, and I'm mentioning teams from the area. But you could even talk about in Ohio State the way their season turned out in the big 10. You know, nothing has been consistent, and I think that's been the biggest dynamic is who had pauses at what times and how that affected their momentum. How do you think that's going to affect the NC? Double atomic is most sports have been affected to some degree, but we've seen them go forward. I feel like maybe in in college. There's even been more disruptions, and we see it now at the conference tournament level. Kansas Duke Virginia. How much do you think that is going to impact the tournament itself? I think it's going to impact it tremendously because I know it sounds cliche ish, because you know, college hoops analyst around this time of the year like myself in March, where we supposed to say Through proceedings out the window. And you never know what's gonna happen. And yes, there is an element of surprise to March madness. But I think this year even more so because Teams are ranked probably are gonna have seedings based on the resume, and and I still think we have surprises on Sunday as to you know how the committee takes into account a team's resume versus what they had to encounter. But you look, I'll just take Dan Hurley's Connecticut team as an example that probably going to play in the 89 game, Robin. But if you take into account their injuries, and they're pauses this year, you know they should be closer to like the Villanova line of things and I think you're going to see a lot of you know 10 seeds and eight or nine seeds, you know, playing that second weekend, and I don't think it's going to be the typical, you know, upset or surprise because Off all of the parody, but because of the differences How weird is it? That Duke is not in the tournament? I mean, how much has eyes that hit you? It is. It is very weird. Um and you know, and you know it more so than just that. The press that they got recently. Obviously the Jalen Johnson you know news with him, opting out for the rest of the season. I, You know, Duke. They weren't going to make the field unless they went all the way in terms of the East 60 final now in the conference championship. I mean, for the first time in 25 years of probably on the outside looking in from the 90 anyway, but No. What? What? What is unique situation from Duke's perspective on you know, Duke's a great example. Robin of this season just being so new, unique. You had the Big East tournament, which means you are locally here in New York. At the Big East tournament that quarantined and bubbled all 10 teams into the same hotel. And then you had Duke that was commuting in and out. And how our every day to Greensboro, North Carolina, thinking they're being safer. Meanwhile, we know what happened on campus in terms of their hotel situation with football and recruiting events and fraternities. And then obviously, you know, the social aspect winds up getting one of their walk on so You know, just just, Ah, year. Obviously, for many reasons, we're not going to forget.

Obviously Patrick Ewing in Georgetown in the news, for reasons that don't have to do with with college basketball. That's necessarily but focusing on on the job. He's done. Not what he did, you know, in the nineties professionally How would you assess where that program is that right now I'll tell you, I can't say enough about the job. Patrick Ewing has done recently. Image T Security staff might not feel the same way heading into Ah This Big East championship game, But you gotta remember Robin. He lost Matt Muk long and he went to Texas Tech, and he's probably been one of the most impact transfers in all of college basketball this year, and Patrick Ewing lost the ton. With preseason pick towards the bottom. He had some, You know, they had some stresses this year or, you know, off the court as well, dealing with all of this and how he's gotten this team. To defend to rebound. They're the only team in the big East That doesn't play. You know, four guards and hoist threes. They play that old school, throw it inside and out, Uh, you know with the big man will have inside. But how He's gotten this team to just gel and play at the right time. You know, talk about a story line we didn't think of. But if Patrick Ewing when the Big East Championship You know, tonight at Madison Square Garden, he got admit, that is pretty cool. Yeah, no doubt about it. Um, hopefully won't be stopped on his way in or way out. Maybe the trophy. Don't we need the credential this evening? The trophies and service a credential. Um, how about the big 10? There was the dust up with Juwan Howard and marked urgent yesterday. But Michigan has had a really impressive season and Juwan Howard's kind of in the face of that. Yeah. What do you want, Howard is has been able to pull off has been terrific. And you know, I've never. I stopped looking at Juwan Howard, as you know that ex player making the jump like some like a Chris Mullen it saying John's per se because You really, you know, honed his craft and really became a junkie sitting on the bench with our exposure in the Miami heat and getting and mentor by Pat Riley. But you know, the Big Ten's the best conference in the country. That's er They're gonna have two number one seeds with Michigan and Illinois. They could have two teams in the final four this year. And once again that's an example of a league that almost cannibalize itself to where you're gonna look at some teams in the big mean Iowa was terrific. Iowa could be in the in the Final four. But you know, that's a perfect example. To where if you Rutgers is probably going to be like a 10 ft, and But if you would've put Rutgers and some of these other leagues Robin like the A C C, the big 12 or the Big East, you know they would be, you know, so much better than some of their competition..

"Real time Rocket can you know the excitable A tournament is upon us. It's almost you know, it's surreal. That It's been a year. Since Kobe Hit us and everything that transpired and, of course, the tournament canceled last year, but it also feels like the way it came around this time of year. Obviously, it was different. Than in previous years. So to discuss I'm joined now by Vin Creasy, Fox Sports and FS one college basketball analyst s and Y Studio analyst. And then I'm curious from your perspective because you're in it. You're following this very closely did the progression the path to the tournament? How much different did it feel to you this season? Well, Robert, I think the word that you just said, surreal sums it up it. It almost feels like it's been three or four seasons. In one as short as it is, I know that that sounds silly, but If you kind of go and look back, it hasn't been typical at all. And I'm not just talking about the cove. It restrictions and quarantines and positive verse, negative testing and all of that protocol. I mean, If you look at who our projected top 10 fumes were in the nation. In November. How we were talking about Michigan State How we were talking about John Calipari's Kentucky team, How we were talking about Duke. And then you had that mid December surge of quarantines and pauses and teams being out of the loop. And then you got into conference play. And then obviously there were so many pauses leading into now quarantine You know you have you have teams right now, Robin, better so hot at every level mid major high level like you look atyou con you look at what Rick Pitino's doing at Iona. You look at Rutgers. You look it. You know, and I'm mentioning teams from the area. But you could even talk about in Ohio State the way their season turned out in the big 10. You know, nothing has been consistent, and I think that's been the biggest dynamic is who had pauses at what times and how that affected their momentum. How do you think that's going to affect the NCWO or make his most sports have been affected to some degree? But we've seen them go forward. I feel like maybe in in college. There's even been more disruptions, and we see it now at the conference tournament level. Kansas Duke Virginia. How much do you think that is going to impact the tournament itself? I think it's going to impact it tremendously because I know it sounds cliche ish, because you know, college hoops analyst around this time of the year like myself in March, where we're supposed to say, Throw the seedings out the window and You never know what's gonna happen. And yes, there is an element of surprise to March madness. But I think this year even more so because Teams are ranked probably are gonna have seedings based on the resume, and and I still think we have surprises on Sunday as to you know how the committee takes into account of teams resume versus what they had to encounter. But you look, I'll just take Dan Hurley's Connecticut team as an example that probably going to play in the 89 game, Robin. But if you take into account their injuries, and they're pauses this year, you know they should be closer to like the Villanova line of things and So I think you're going to see a lot of you know 10 seeds and an eight or nine feeds, you know, playing that second weekend, and I don't think it's going to be the typical, you know, upset or surprise because Off all of the parody, but because of the differences How weird is it? That Duke is not in the tournament? I mean, how much has eyes that hit you? It is. It is very weird. Um and you know, and you know it more so than just that. The press that they got recently. Obviously the Jalen Johnson you know news with him, opting out for the rest of the season. I, You know, Duke. They weren't going to make the field unless they went all the way in terms of the East final Now in the conference championship, I mean, for the first time in 25 years of probably on the outside looking in from the 90 anyway, but You know what? What a unique situation from Duke's perspective on, you Know, Duke's a great example. Robin of this season just being so new, unique. You had the Big East Tournament, which means you were locally here in New York. The Big East tournament that quarantined and bubbled all 10 teams into the same hotel. And then you had Duke that was commuting in and out an hour every day to Greensboro, North Carolina, thinking they're being safer. Meanwhile, we know what happened on campus in terms of their hotel situation with football and recruiting events and fraternities. And then obviously, you know, the social aspect winds up getting one of their walk on so You know, just just, Ah, year. Obviously, for many reasons, we're not going to forget. Robin Ledbury talking of in Paree, See Fox Sports and FSO in college basketball analyst s and Y. Studio analyst here on the Robin Liberate Show on CBS Sports Radio.

"Like if they go, You know I if they go small and it's Durant Green or or brown, who, whoever that is that that spot with with hardened Harris and Irving, who is indeed then guarding Well, yeah, I mean, look. It has it has pluses and minus. I mean, don't don't get don't get it, mistaking that, you know, Dee, essentially. But now it becomes a situation is which we kind of remember about the Houston Rockets. And maybe they'll Phoenix Suns games goes by like that, Tony Is the fact that that can you outscore that team? It doesn't matter who can get to stop. If you just pretty much all comes down to who could get miss. So now it becomes a situation Who's going to get the miss who's gonna miss the shot? And if you could really just outscore them, so defense is kind of thrown out the window with that. They need a definite, definite rim protector. And then that being the Brooklyn that in order for them to be in a situation that as they go along, you can have the option that if you want to go small you can and make you know to try different things, which the Lakers did last year. I think in the playoff, which works so well and effectively You also could be able to go big when necessary to take the size advantage against to you that I have part times matching up. Robin Ledbury talking to Gerald Brown, host of the Bottom line Sports show on Sirius here on CBS Sports Radio. You mentioned the Lakers quickly out West, You know, it's tough to assess that that situation right. Utah's playing so well the Clippers obviously you're very good. But you know, with the a LeBron team, there's generally a certain level of attention that comes But how much can we react to where they're at right now? In the season with Anthony Davis out, given the quick turnaround, and given that we're you know, in still in February right now? Yeah, Robin, I'd said before that once this one they won the championship, and there was the MBA put notice out that they were going to start the season relatively quick, just pretty much get back on a normal cycle. Just about the fact that you're going to look at this Lakers team. That is, uh, that Aaron Laden team guys that know their roles. You're going to see them pretty much managed their season now The unfortunate thing is Anthony Davis does gonna miss some time and being hurt. I don't think there should be a sense of panic because last night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers was an indication that when the Lakers need to dial it up a little and then obviously getting to finish water back Really help they're able. They're capable of doing that and what we saw last night, especially in that second half in terms of the defense of awareness that was played against the Portland Trail Blazers and Damian Lillard. We know that listed this will not last that long. There's not this should be a sense of panic. Obviously, if you had Anthony Davis out for the year, that's a different story. But I look at this recent stretch of games that they losing. It's just merely a team that is veteran team that's knowing that look, we wanna be our best and his sharpest possible. Come May 22nd when the playoffs start, and it's not really necessary right now, let's just play good basketball, stay sharp and make sure we do the things that's necessary to make sure that we're the last team standing.

"Fun begin. Here's Robin Lundberg. It is the Robin Lundberg Show here on CBS Sports Radio. Let's get into some on the court action in the MBA, and to do so I'm joined now by Mitch Laurence of Sirius, XM, NBA Radio and Mad Dog Sports Radio and Mitch. Let's start with, You Know, I guess you're talking NBA. It never hurts to start. With LeBron James, and he's the M V P favorite so far this year. I mean, I guess you just get to the point. It's kind of like with Tom Brady where you're almost numb. To the excellence and the standard that, he said. But how impressed are you by the level LeBron is playing at in the year 18. First of all. Good morning, Robin. Thanks for having me on. I don't think he's a favor. I think he's the right route right now. The runaway winner and he should be considering. Here's a guy who led the Lakers to a championship. Okay, it was in the bubble, but it still counts. Had a quick turn around. We all figured he's probably gonna take a bunch of games off. I remember when the season started. They played in the opening an idea with the ring ceremony. Then he knew they were gonna play on Christmas. I figured that 3rd 4th game he'd be taken off. Guy has answered the bell every game out. It's obvious he wants to win the M V p this year. And he's carried the Lakers and games. They haven't had Anthony Davis. He's made just so reliable and the thing I keep coming back to is your 18. Let's set aside. Yeah, he's 36, but he's in his 18th season. Nobody in history of the league in their 18th season was the best player on their own team. If you go back to Karim's years, and I watched Kareem and then when you know when he was finishing up with the Lakers, he was not the best player in his 18th 19th year with the Lakers. This guy's the best player in the league still So it's just an incredible means Having one of the more incredible years and to me, I you know whoever is going to be the you know the number two guy in the M V P. As long as things continue to play out the way they are, and LeBron dominant, he's not getting injured. It's gonna be a distant second, whether it's embiid or yoga teacher. Whoever LeBron is justifying, you know, Father time. It's incredible to watch. Are you a little bit miffed that he only has four MVPs at this point is to me should have at least six. I'm still mad. Shaquille O'Neal only has one You know, I'm not. You know, you're laughing. Kobe Bryant only had one. I mean, we're talking about some of the guys who are the all time greats, especially Shaquille. And you know when nothing against Steve Nash. Was, you know, M v p worthy, But how? How do we look back down? And how did the media and I voted for secure on the a lot? That's why I'm bringing it up. But that's to me the most egregious one. We said it's just amazing that the guy was so physically dominant as shack was only one won M v P and he should have been unanimous. That was the joke there. He wasn't unanimous, and he should have been When Fred Hickman CNN voted for that's a name from the past voted for Allen Iverson League. Try to get Fred to change his vote Not happening, but yeah, I mean, and then you know what you killed Did. He just took it out on whoever he was playing in the playoffs in the finals, and he won three straight M v P in the finals, so When I look back at LeBron will I feel? Yeah, I'll probably feel like you should have had more. There's no doubt about that. But start with Shaquille O'Neal. If you're looking for someone who got slighted by the media. Yeah, I mean, look, when you're an impact player of that level, it's It's hard to argue that you weren't the most valuable player in the league more than once. And for me, you know, I always say, like the default argument is, if LeBron's out there and healthy he's the most valuable guy. A couple exceptions, and they're obviously a couple years ago when he got hurt. And there's just like, historically special seasons. You know, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry Guys like that. Speaking of Yeah, yeah. Speaking of Steph Curry the season he's having this year. I mean, It's funny, cause he got this. I know this was mostly like Yahoo's online and the like, But there was this. Like, you know, Kenny carry a team sort of thing coming into the season. He's proven that pretty well, Steph Steph Curry, you know is that he's got to be the reason that the Warriors air above 500, right? Oh, yeah, There's no doubt It also helped that they got dream on green playing. I mean, here's a team if they beat the Nets late tonight, out there in San Francisco. They're only going to be three games over 500. That would be the first time all year they be 15 and 12. Um, They've had a chance five times this year to go three games over in their own five in those games. So, uh, in the last state, therefore, in four, but he's just been monster numbers. 35 points a game shooting 53% for threes. I mean, you saw the great He had the 57 points a week ago against Luca did everything he could shoot the warriors to the wind couldn't get it done. But you know, here's a guy. He's the only unanimous M v P in the history of the league, and that was well deserved when he made 400 Plus three back was five years ago. When Golden State one there 73. So Yeah, I mean, coming into the season, I thought No clay Thompson. Not there, And that's going to prevent them from probably going deep in the playoffs. Robin. But if you have Steph Curry and if you have dream on green and you have the pieces around him, and if you get some production from Wiseman James Wiseman, the rookie. I figured Golden State would make the playoffs. No doubt, and it starts with Steph Curry, who's still the greatest shooter that the game is seen in one of the great scorer. So you know Steve Kerr right now says he's playing the best he's ever played. I mean, that's pretty good, considering the guy. Was the unanimous M V P at one point, So it's great to see class act on and off the court, and it should be a great one tonight when Kevin Durant finally makes it back to Golden State. Robin Ledbury talking to Mitch Laurence. Serious..

"To a game like that, And by the time you get to the day before they almost every topic has been Possibly exhausted. So I think you know that. The way to go with Super Bowl content today is really just who you think's gonna win the game on by. I'll get to that in just a second. But first there was a Really sad story. Out of Super Bowl week. Um I don't know how much news coverage this has gotten yet. Ah, but Andy Reid son, one of his sons, Britt Reid. Who is Outside linebackers coach. I believe For the Kansas City Chiefs. He was involved in a car accident on Thursday night. And The results of the car accident. Left two young Children injured one, a five year old with life threatening injuries. Which is just I mean, it's horrifying. I Particularly sensitive To a topic like this because of the age of my kids. And You know, I just I even read the sentence five year old with life threatening injuries, and I I, You know, I lose my breath. For a second. Obviously, I don't know this kid's name. I don't know his family. I I don't know anything about him just that the entire concept of a five year old Uh, With life threatening injuries is Tragic I mean, My thoughts go out to the family, and I hope the kid pulls through. Uh, And that yet, Yeah. Read the circumstances around it in the report around it, and, um You know there. The DEA. Breeds the car. Driven by Reed is the one that struck one of the other cars that ran into another car. And, uh, you know, multi car accident, but it does appear that you know alcohol could be involved. In this case, he admitted. Who having 2 to 3 drinks, I believe is what he said. But the you know, officer said his eyes were bloodshot and smelled a moderate amount. Older, moderate order of alcoholic. Averages. Um And you know, Britt Reid has a history. With with some legal problems. Not even just flashing a gun and another motorist, but also a past, do you? I, um And I look, I don't know. If anything like this is gonna affect the Chiefs. I don't know. Um, it's gonna affect Andy Reid. Certainly This is not the First Incident. That that he's had to deal with involving His sons. Uh, you know, that's been documented in the past, but This guy Britt Reid, his son is you know a member of the coaching staff. I don't know if he'd be a member of the coaching staff of he wasn't Andy Reid son to be quite honest, looking at some of the You know, history, also said he had taken a prescription out at a role with the alcohol. Um, I don't know if this is the kind of thing that has any Impact on the game. But I did just want to say that I hope the kid involved is okay. Both both the Children. I hope everybody involved is okay and When it comes to alcohol. Like, Obviously don't drink. You drive. I like that should be done. Um, obviously don't drink and drive. You know, you put other people at risk, but I think you know it. It's beyond just that, too. When, when? When? I'm not talking about Britt Reid specifically here. But when? When People have Ah, Multiple d'you eyes. And and a repeated pattern of that. I mean, there's one aspect of it that you just go. What are you doing? And then there's another aspect. That always makes me worry about you know, uh, Alcohol problems in general, because It would make me think. If someone is repeating that sort of behavior there. There might be something else going on on def Anybody out there, you know. Not only one don't drink and drive, but too If anyone out there thinks they're struggling with alcohol, or somebody else is struggling with alcohol. Don't be afraid to get help. In that regard. I mean, I know like alcohol's like it's such a huge part of our culture and everything, but it's dangerous, too. I mean, like, later and plenty of people can Had consume it and have a good time and more power to you. But I mean some of the stats on it or alarming and I don't think people realize that sometimes because of how popular it is, but one out of every 10 deaths, according to the CDC, among working age adults is due to excessive drinking. And you know, according to the World Health Organization, more than three million people die a year. From alcohol related Thanks. So, uh You know, just treated, you know, with respect in that regard, And if you think you have anything, um, a problem with alcohol or somebody does treated seriously because it is a serious drug. In that regard and can lead to, um ah lot of tragedy. But that was just a a bummer of a story. To see in general. Yeah, I mean, you never want to see that story at any time. It doesn't matter if it's it's leading up to the Super Bowl, And I'm not gonna, um You know, cheeping. The real life impact that something that that has by like trying to spin it into whether it has any impact on the game Coming up tomorrow. It is the rabbit Blood work show here on CBS Sports Radio.

"Berg show on CBS sports Radio. You know, Wu Tang is forever. Sometimes it feels like Tom Brady is forever as well. 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 at Robin Lundberg on Twitter Right now, I'm joined by Matt Chatham Patriots and NFL analyst at Yeah, and message. He won three Super bowls with Brady. So, uh, you're fried some insight into what Brady brings to a team and that that's why I want to start. You know, um Tom Brady gets the Tampa obviously, like they have a defensive roster in place. And Todd Bowles has done a great job calling the defense and obviously they have offensive playmakers that helped inform probably his decision to go there. And I don't think you could say like Brady is responsible for them getting to the Super Bowl because You know, it was a team as a whole. But what is it about? Simply his presence that you think brought them over the top. What is it about him personally? I just have always kind of been of the mind that Really bad teams and then average teams and then you're better teams are really not as far apart from one another, as people tend to think. And you know a 7 to 19 these joining did have as you mentioned really good defensive and offensive personnel. Defensively, they perform much better your prior but They also didn't win games, so they didn't get stops exactly the time they needed. And I think when you have a quarterback that is sort of been through the wash is many times as he has doesn't panic has a swoon, which they did mid season. You know, as he was sort of learning what parts of this offense worked for him and what needs to be changed and things like that. I think it is really helpful to have a steadying ship kind of presence because You know, there are there were moments in this season where Tampa easily could have gone away and ended up, you know, a night and 17. But they sort of stayed the course. And I think it's It's not just, you know, necessary of breath of the season kind of deal, but a lot of times it's stuffed in game. You know, you have two bad, serious and row and People want to think. Oh my gosh, You know, it's here comes the old guy stretching him, and he's done more things after mistake's this year, then they're not even recall in the work last few seasons, so that's that resolve that that ability to bounce back is what time has always been about. Obviously he wants to win another Super Bowl to the point where I think when he got there, the number 12 Godwin had it And if he couldn't get 12, he said he would take seven because it would mean another Super Bowl. How much do you think that was the driving force behind his has moved to Tampa to win again to prove he could do it. Outside of New England without Belichick, or how much was it just you know it being time for a different situation and because he's Tom Brady that they wind up in the in this position. Yeah. I just think this is such an unusual, unusual situation. We think of all the other sort of big time. Great quarterback figures in our early century, especially more modern, I guess last 30 years anyhow. Do you think of the always and you think of like your Montanas and Manning in Gaza cut that have been big figures at in. Some of those instances changed teams even like a Montana like I think there's a child. I remember this, You know the chief's years of his career. That was happening, like, you know, 678 years, part of crazy in making this move. Brady didn't spent 20 years in one organization, so from your farms from all these other major figures It had to make Lee career decisions. Italy career was, you know, again nearly a decade ago, so he passed those those sort of junctures or other people decide these instead, they're Gil. I think 20 is just an insane amount of time period. You know that that quarterback coach duo Day together the long and longer than any other ever has, And I do think there is a new element and it was expressed really, especially by Tom and that there is no hard feelings here. I think both sides left with sort of Equal admiration. But like 20 years, I I kind of I feel like I still have a lot more than think. Maybe a little more than the team believes, and I'd like a little fresh start and has so human and so normal and I think ultimately that's what this really boils down to. Robin Ledbury, talking a match at a Patriot's, an NFL analyst at Nessen won three Super Bowls with Tom Brady and Matt Um, knowing Brady. How much do you think he's clearly aware? You know, I think all these guys are aware of of the talk, but the talk for this Super Bowl is not just about him. It's now about the homes and Brady and the idea that my homes could be the guy that catches Brady, who's the consensus Greatest of all time. How much do you think Brady here? Is that? How much do you think he cares about that as far as his preparation and desire to come out on top of this one? I know that something Thomas experienced over the last not just this one. But the last few. I mean, the number had gotten so ridiculous. It just sort of defies comprehension. When you get the seven when get to eight and at times, like, come on, you know, like you can't is not in 10 that much better than 99. Not much better than eight. All these things are lapping the field many times over already, anyhow. So I tend to think he's been through this line of questioning. It's like different person this time, you know, but to someone who's been through it that much. You kind of just roll your eyes. I I tend to think he's in sort of gravy gravy territory, like nothing he's going to do would hurt his own. You know, Legacy a reputation wherever you want to call it, But it could hurt homes a little bit in that. You know you're getting the guys 43. You know you're getting a guy who's months from 44. You should be up, but you should be. If you will want to have that kind of sort of status someday down the line. It would be a big black mark for him and not get over the top of a guy who's a decade over his prime. So I tend to think that the pressure here should want much more with the homes that Brady whatever he does to me. This is like this is like Nicholas, who should be a decade in tow. You know, like senior PGA stuff. It's somehow still coming back and playing and majors and and playing right down to the edge of the games. Current best..

"I've been joking when keeping it real goes wrong was Davos Winnie's ranking of over Ohio State at number 11. But were you surprised by by how dominant the Buckeyes were in that head to head matchup with Clemson? First we'll have you near and second bullet. Yeah, I was surprised because I felt I really did feel like Ohio State in question. We're gonna have a really good game back and forth all game all kind of like what we saw last year in the semifinal matchup. If either team was going to get blown out. I kind of expected that was busy Clinton doing the blowing out and Ohio say it was gonna be kind of catching their breath. A little bit obviously went completely the other way. So Yeah, I was very surprised at Ohio State just was able to find another gear and just wasn't taking their foot off the gas pedal against the Clinton team that I still think is really good. They just They just came up well short on the biggest stage of the game. So what happened to them? I mean, was it a simple is how well Oh, has they played? I mean, obviously, Justin Fields was awesome. Yeah, I mean, just feels was a difference maker for Ohio State. And you really kind of even though after he took that shot to the ribs, I didn't think there was any way he was gonna be able to finish that game. And I gotta give him so much credit for Abel being able to get through that and put together some of the place he was making, because that had to hurt, So I imagine he's feeling it today. I'm sure but I just feel like Justin Fields was just on a different level last night. And that's the kind of ability that they really expected out of him when they brought him in from Georgia. Yeah. I mean, obviously you've seen him this year, and you saw that performance. Where do you see him in the You know, hierarchy of the NFL draft now, because all of a sudden you got him. Ah, lot of people positioning him it at number two, and if he plays Um, you know, anywhere close to that level against Alabama, you might even have people saying even higher. Yeah, I would guess that the NFL folks they're already looking at. Justin feels very highly even before last night, So I just feel like he has all the kind of still whom tools that a lot of NFL teams they're gonna want to take advantage of s O. I don't think he certainly hasn't hurt his draft stock by any stretch of the imagination. I don't imagine how much higher do they actually get? Only if you're talking about them, or from number two number one that is that maybe that's I guess that's a big deal. But I just feel so his stock was already pretty high because of everything even bring the table. So obviously if he has a performance like that against Alabama, it's gonna be very hard for a lot of teams the pants off him when they're looking for a quarterback. And Trevor Laurence, obviously the presumptive number one overall pick and has been for for a long while. Now I'll host Let's let's actually like. Take Sweeney's comments at face value for a second. I think you know the goal was to pick the four best teams and clearly, Ohio State was one of the four best teams but did that their their season workout as a kind of sneaky advantage for them because they have only played, you know, a little bit more than a handful of games and therefore perhaps they were the fresher team in that one. I don't want to get too carried away with that because Ohio State even while they weren't playing games, they were still going through some practices. They were still trying to stay in shape. They didn't They didn't stain on top of their game throughout this whole pandemic, with the expectation that they were going to play and play for a national championship, so Obviously they were one of the more vocal teams in wanting to play football at all this year out of the big 10, so they were always on that all that mindset that they had to do everything it took for them to be ready to play and compete for a national title, so I don't know how many games they would have had to play. That would have convinced people that they were deserving of being in a playoff. I really did feel like six games, five games. Even I saw enough to certify to me that they're one of the four best teams in the country now is an advantage not having played as many games and some of these other teams. Yeah, probably because you're reducing the number of opportunities to be injured and get banged up. I get that, but at the same time, you know they've still been putting in the work with the with the plan on competing for a national championship, so I don't want take too much away from them. Even though they only played a fraction of the games, that some of these others he's dead. You know, I'm not trying to take away from them it all clearly they're one of the four best here. They just smacked Clemson around right? Clearly, you know, and the circumstances are what they are, and you know, they affect people in different ways. And it wasn't their fault. The way that that season played out one that the big 10 started later to that, you know, they have games that were canceled because of them. But because of that, the opposition You know, didn't didn't have that Michigan win that they're gonna put their belt. Right s o. I mean, I think, um as far as that goes, I'm not taking any credit away from him, but it would run. To that their advantage in the sense that this is typically where they'd be at the middle of the season, when you know 18 like Clemson has had to have more attrition if you will. No, and I totally agree with that. It makes perfect sense when you're looking at it. From that point of view. I just feel like the people that were saying that they didn't deserve to be in the playoffs by, I think are getting their comeuppance head yes today because it certainly proved that they were worth it. Yeah, I didn't go back and saying like yes, playing half the games. That's all these other teams did reduces your chance to be injured and reduces the wear and tear on your roster. So yeah, that's going to be an advantage. But you know what? This has been a crazy year, so everybody's playing by some different holes. No, you didn't have to play 10 games season or in 11 games season and some of these other conferences, But you did. So I mean, you really You go with your own decisions. And you, you kinda have to live with the consequences one way or the other. Robin Ledbury talking to Kevin McGuire.

"MBA nationally and also obviously being in Boston, I'm curious your perspective. What's going on with Kyrie, Irving. As of late like I I personally don't care whether Kyrie talks to the media I'm not insulted by, you know his whole ponds thing. But for someone who claims to not want to be involved in that thing and just want the focus on his game, he is kind of drawing more attention and fanning the flames if you will. Yeah, carries an interesting person. The cover covered him, obviously with the first two years in Boston And you know, I actually liked him. I mean, I don't think he's a bad person. A bad guy. Um, I think I reconsidered himself. Thinker he considers himself Probably more intelligent than most NBA players. Quote unquote. I don't think that I don't know. That probably comes across as Eric game or pompous, um, especially the kind of things he's saying now. I always found Kyrie to be a person who there was just different. Tyree's You know, there was times where he would want to be open and expressive and talkative. There was times he had didn't have much to say there was times and was like What Kyrie, are you catching? Um, always found with him that certain athletes and some people, you can ask anything any kind of way it will answer the question. I read. You need to frame the question to where he's comfortable with it. If you don't he'll call you out on it. I don't have a problem with that. Um, it's just a matter of getting the noted athlete, the particular athlete how they like. Uh, deep no addressed and talked to, etcetera, Um So this whole thing is interesting. Um, I just think I resist. I don't know. Maybe this Brooklyn thing will make him happy. The thing I took away from covering Kyrie is happiness with him is fleeting. Um, e. I don't think you mean organization has played for Um, any persons dealt with in the in the NBA attorney general managers, coaches quite knew what consistently make Kyrie happy. Maybe even he doesn't Who knows? And I just think this is this one of these points where he's Somehow irritated by the media. He hasn't played in almost two years now seems about the stars and, you know he's trying to make a statement for his team and obviously playing with Kevin Durant. Durant had his issues with the media. Golden State. Maybe this is him taking a stand for his team. Like you said. It doesn't bother me. Did you know the pawn thing? It doesn't bother me. I think he Um, It's just I think you're trying to move on with this season. If you want doesn't want to speak to the media of he wants to just released statements. That's fine. Um, but I think I really just need to play ball in the court needs to get his When I go back on the floor, he needs to become an all star again. He needs to do what he did years ago. But I think you know, people both. We know we've Malone, but I just think Irene is a complex person. It's just hard. It's hard to figure out what makes him happy. Maybe the Brooklyn thing maybe being home and he played with Cady, maybe playing for a title in this situation under Steve Nash will do it. What needs to be seeing because he wasn't happy in Cleveland. He wasn't happy in Boston. So let's see what happens here. What are your expectations for the basketball product there? Because I mean, obviously Kevin Durant. Let's assume you're you're getting a sensually. Katie being back Kyrie that makes for an explosive offensive team with with Laverne and did what he's shooting from Harris. You got a first year head coach. You've got the New York media. You've got the national media covering this team. What do you expect from the Brooklyn Nets? I'm good things. I think the ashes the guy's basketball survived. You know, he's a guy who's going to put the players and positions I think you'll get along well being a point guard with Kyrie Irving Um, I think the sky's the limit for this team. Um, you know, it all just depends on kind of the hovering words of You know, James Harden want to come in and, you know, honestly grabbing. I think that the Nets can mess this up themselves, You know, like that's what I'm afraid of. I don't know. I think if they don't mess it up themselves, don't be fine. But I think when you have personalities like Durant like Irving, um you know, it's Irving. Always gonna be a good teammate are we Are we talking about, you know? Uh, well, Carrie's revert, be OK with the number three roll after kind of being the number one guy over the last year, so because Durant early were hurt, like, how is all this going to translate the chemistry? Um, you know, I don't think they'll have a problem respecting Steve Nash go well. He has some first You're coaching, you know, Miss stakes, and hopefully for their sake. Mike D'Antoni helps them out as me an assistant, you know, so they have all the support system. They have the talent. I think you know, it's just all about their chemistry. If they their chemistry is fine. They could make a title run and also left. Let's face it. I mean, Katie comes back from the Achilles will see how well he comes back in the same retiree Irving coming back from almost two years off. Robin Ledbury talking to Gary Washburn, National MBA writer for the Boston Globe Here on CBS Sports Radio. You mentioned James Harden their Gary and You know It's funny because I feel like somehow, James Harden has become a little underrated and everything that's going on here. I'm not a huge fan of the conduct. Of late and there are you know arguments about his style, but I've seen people go too far in saying I would want nothing to do with this guy on my team or I wouldn't trade this guy for James Harden, where you at with with with hardened situation. I mean, I think Miss Mentality player. I think he's revolutionized the game in terms of learning teaching guys how to draw fouls, how to get to the free throw line, Mastering. Traveling. Basically, he legal help.

"Hope you are doing well, and the NFL changing enough starts on Thursday, Kansas City and Houston. The opening game, So I'm joined now by John McClane, NATIONAL NFL Writer for the Houston Chronicle, John First of all, I mean, obviously, these are strange times for all of us beyond the sports world. But can you ever recall the NFL season popping up like this? It's just like, Hey, I'm here. No, Robin. Actually, in my 44 years of govern the NFL is his unprecedented. I've seen a lot of wow. Tumultuous starts two seasons, mainly because the threat of player strikes in 82 87, but there's never been anything like the pandemic. It's been amazing the way the NFL's dealt with it and had so few test compared to the number of players and people around the team since they've been involved, But So if you guys have had the Corona virus Bacon, bacon blade on each other's sweat on each other's spit on each other, Just like they always do. Guys don't have the virus. They're not gonna be contagious. You know, Look it being obviously Ah, been rooting for sports to go on for a number of reasons and hope. The same is true for the NFL, because if it doesn't it means bad things. But you're right. Things have been going pretty much for them that they've been More fortunate than any league from a timing standpoint to because it happened right after the Super Bowl, and most of the news has been of a typical variety. I mean, it's not typical that Tom Brady switches teams, but that's a transaction right. A guy leaving and Cam Newton going the Patriots in the draft. In a lot of focus on the field. Patrick Mahomes. His contract on now does Sean Watson's contract. What's the mood in the vibe around the Texans after he signed that big deal? We knew for weeks they wanted to get it done before the start regular season we kept saying be around 40 million because we knew he would be second. I've paid to Patrick Mahomes as he should have been since the home's been MPT a Super Bowl ring symbol in the pay Watson getting 39 Megan here. And so everybody's happy about it. They they show they'll take care of their core players like Laramie Tonsils at Cunningham, Whitney Mercilus and watching All of them have signed new contracts extensions, and they're more likely to spend it on there. Guys and other teams, guys. I think that's a pretty good philosophy because when you spend a lot of money on a player comes in from another team that can create a bad working environment. No, obviously, they're probably still hurting a little bit from the way they are eliminated from the playoffs last year. What needs to change that is as good as the show. Watson is, he sort of was, you know that next level last year toe Patrick Holmes and Lamar Jackson. Maybe everybody was the next level. To to Patrick Mahomes. But when you go up 20 for nothing in a playoff game, and you wind up losing 51 31 that that, you know, consent, have aftershocks. And we saw obviously what happened with Hopkins and and so on, and so forth, you know is that still something that sticks with the Texans and how do you see their approach being different when they play Kansas City again on Thursday? Well approach it like they did in regular season last year when they wanted Arrowhead 31 24. Watson had three touchdowns. Homes had three. But they ran the ball for 190 yards, and they control it for almost 40 minutes of the best ways. Kate Mom's on the bench and they did not do that. The playoffs. They joked that 20 for a laid it was a disaster from the top of the organization to the bottom. Most people will say No. We put that rear view mirror. We're not thinking about it. Every person J. J. What? Shawn Watson. Bill O'Brien. They don't dwell on it, but they know they know they were humiliated. They get to be out, scored 51 7 after they were lady when the wheels came off. So they're decisive underdogs. Nine a half that I've seen today, and most people expect him to be blown out because their defense was bad last year after being good to hear before. But Detective Watson has been 11 5 and 10 and five starting quarterback the last two years had a great playoff game against Buffalo and but everybody was bad against cheese, and they got pride. They should have a big chip on her shoulder and his anti raid said yesterday When I asked him about the sea of red and only 17,000 fans, he goes well will be a low tide. Robin Ledbury talking to John McClane, National NFL writer for the Houston Chronicle here on CBS Sports Radio, You know, and it's easy to say the Texans need to revamp everything after a loss like that, But it's also you know, ah, commentary on the chief's. That's when I knew They were gonna win the Super Bowl after that game because I've never seen anything like a reverse blowout sort of, and that's part of the thing with Kansas City. I mean, Patrick Holmes, I don't believe has ever lost a game by more than a touchdown. D You think we're looking at a season? This doesn't usually happen in the NFL. But where it's the Chiefs and and it's everyone else. Well, I big guy would not pick to change just because nobody repeats. Nobody's repainted since early Two thousands when the Patriots did it after the one I know to season them big 40 Niners. For whatever reason. The team that loses Super Bowl doesn't go back. I went with the Ravens and the Saints. With the Saints to win, and so I expect can be great again, but just the odds are against them Teams. Teams have seen them. They know how great Holmes's. I would think if I was ever team the legs didn't tryingto outscore them? I would try to use that formula to run the ball. Don't turn it over your end of the field, try to keep the homes where he belongs. Which would be on the bench watching being the most Expensive chair later in history. Who was your Super Bowl pick?.

"And he's also a professor of pop culture. Here's Robin Lundberg. All right time to dive back into the N B A and to help me do so. I'm joined by Dan for volley. Deputy editor of N Ba Math also n B, a writer for bleacher report. Dan. Let's start with the game and the Siri's from last night. Luca Dodges his angle ankle injury obviously makes this Ah gloomy outlook for the Mavericks. Do you think that Siri's is over Because going in? I thought the Clippers would would make light work of Dallas. I thought there will a clip to deal with with Luca and company but That actually hasn't been the case thus far enough. Poor Zynga's doesn't get kicked outta Game one. I'm not so sure that Siri's wasn't too nothing Mavs going into Game three, but considering the fact that it was 11 The performance they got from Kwai Leonard and Dodges ankle injuries that enoughto make You think that the Clippers are definitely gonna move on there. Yeah, I think it has to be. It's like it sort of is, Aren't we had to kind of inflection points already for the theory only three game, then forcing its foul and then the Dodgers injury. I think you still give the marriage a chance if Dante, which is able to play and not be limited, but we have no idea whether that's going to be a possibility, and just watching him try to return in Game three was Was really favoring that ankle. If he is healthy, though, you know Dallas to have been reluctant to throw Collyer Paul George on him is the primary defender or even necessarily trapped him. And so they're going to live in single coverage with Marcus Moore, who's done a pretty good job on Donges. But if they're going to continue that defensive approach, you would think it would open the door for full strength. Mavericks the foot side of all that would be Paul George's yet to have a good Offensive performance in this series in the fact that Dallas is up 2 to 1 anyway, might just be a harbinger that hey, maybe this thing is probably going to end in five games, no matter what. What do you make of all of the playoff pee jokes when it comes to Paul George? They're funny. It's you know, it's part of differentiate between our people taking me seriously or that just for for kicks because I will laugh at them. But, like Paul George has been dominant in the playoffs in the past. I think a lot of people just remember how he kind of wilted again. Joe Ingles. I think that was 2018. If I'm not mistaken, and now you have the performance right now, and it does seem like, you know, trying to be vocal and justify it with. I guess his shoulder's hurting him, which is, you know a valid excuse, but it doesn't feel like social media take too kindly to Players like they're trying to make excuses. So the jokes to me I was the last of them, but I think we have to remember that Paul George is an absolutely incredible player who's borderline top 10 at the peak of his powers. Robin Ledbury talking to Dan for Valley who covers the MBA for bleacher report here on CBS Sports Radio. Now tonight, you've got Game three of the Lakers Blazer, Siri's and That's been the highest profile. Siri's. We all know why obviously the Lakers LeBron James involved and then what Damian Lillard has been able to do in the bubble. Thus far, the reaction T game one. I said I would know after game too Well, when we When we the reaction was starting after the one, I said, although, after game to what I really think Because I had ah, suspicion that the Lakers could really run the rest of the series after watching Game one, despite the fact that they lost, given how poorly they shot from the outside and how they looked defensively Now you don't want to discount this is ah, vastly improved Blazers team from the regular season And of course, they know we see how dangerous dame is. But do you think Game two was a sign of things to come? For the remainder of the series. I would get yet And this was a theory that I picked to end in five to begin with. I think, because the Blazers one in Game one that definitely kind of paved the way for maybe a six game, But you're looking at Damian Miller's injury, even though it is not shooting him. You don't know how that's going to impact him the Blazers. They still seem to kind of be searching for something with their lineups where we've seen use of inner kitchen as on Whiteside play at the same time because the Lakers run dual Biggs and that approaches field A little bit untenable. And so you know, you can rely on supernova shotmaking from Damian Miller and even CJ McCollum, who's been banged up for a while, too. But it just kind of felt like with all the energy the Blazers extended to get to this point, and just the players that they've been Relying on to the stage where it's a pretty good shot making from Carmelo Anthony. Seeing Gary Trent Junior just never missed from three and in high volume. It felt like that that walk if you want to call her that that street those often survived where Gonna run out eventually. And so you look at what the Lakers are able to do defensively on players who aren't Damian Lillard. And then if he's limited in any way, I think that now we kind of look at this series. And you're right. It does feel like the Lakers going now on the table here. I mean, it makes sense if you think about it to the places were playing for their playoff lives, right, But they were they were doing so against the Nets and the Grizzlies and teams like that, In some, really the Clippers without Kawhi Leonard and some really tightly contested games and that had them ready to play the Lakers workplace. I mean, other than that opening night game against the Clippers, where they really weren't still playing for anything other than hey, this is the official restarted. The MBA had to lock up the number one seed and all that. But it was like on emotional moment. Other than that they took their foot off the gas, so it would make sense. It would take them a second to Rev it up. But there's generally a reason. One team is the number one seed, even if it happened before the restart. The other one is the eighth seed. I think they're concerned with the Lakers were more about the to me the long term effects of some of those struggles. You know how much are we going to see Anthony Davis? It's center, I think is key for them and then how guys make the outside shots because if those guys if pope and company are hitting outside shots Then the Lakers with their their defense and the two guys that they've got. That's what makes them a championship contender. I would agree with you, and it's just look. They have that higher variance with their role player death and you kind of just mentioned it..

"robin ledbury" Discussed on Xtra Sports Radio 1300 AM

"Knows his sports, and he's also a professor of pop culture. Here's Robin Lundberg. I'm Robin Ledbury here with you on CBS Sports radio. Good asking you what? You're more excited about the return of the MBA or the return. Of Major League baseball, and I think it's an interesting question. Just because the end is more popular in the the broader sense there are, you know better television ratings. More national conversation bigger stars in the NBA. But More globally popular but the bigger on social media At the same time, baseball is so regionally popular that I imagine there are a lot of baseball fans. Who are just super excited to have their team back in their life, which is a huge benefit for them. 855 to 1 to 42 7855 to 124227 Hellraiser tweets and I'm surprised at you, Robin. The NHL. Some of us are more excited about hockey coming back and playoff hockey. No less. Like I said. Hockey fans. Welcome in You know, I and I was packaging it as N B. A in major league baseball simply because N B. A in major league baseball ER are the bigger, broader sports for the audience of a show like this, But I know that hockey fans of passion and I would never doubt that, as I said before. I admire the passion of hockey fans, So if you want to write in vote hockey You are more than welcome to and the NHL deserves credit, too, because they like the N B. A. I think have a more thorough plan. You know, Like with all this going on, there is still the concern that some of it gets halted. I You know, I have a level of concern about football season because that's just hard to contain. Baseball We've already seen right before the first game. You know a positive test for one of the stars that was supposed to participate in that game who was apparently asymptomatic while I practice. So you still have these concerns when it comes to baseball? There's concerns for every sport, including Dan H. L N N B A is well, but I do think their plans are more thorough when it comes to the bubble sites that they will be running. Um and you know, operating within Then I get another. But the NHL's also not starting for a little bit longer, right? I mean, so that that's another reason I didn't use it directly in that comparison. Scott Curlin tweets and I'm one of those people who don't believe in the black lives matter. Movement at sports shows why don't they put up all the pieces of all the Children who have died in Chicago shootings? Robin. I don't hear you flapping your gums about that. Well, I don't do that. Because I don't deal with bad faith. Actors like you. You know what about We? What about messaging and tweets like that? Ah, you tell me where you really stand when you say stuff like that. I don't think there's ever been anybody who I've heard say that they Wouldn't want to help a situation in Chicago or anywhere else. But that is not the broader issue at hand that is being addressed, which is the treatment of black people in this country, both now and throughout history. So you know when you say stuff like that, Um, just let me in you. No, no, you You tell him yourself. And again if you can't take And I would even say like when you say The movement. I mean that, yes, there is a movement happening in society right now, but you should be able to read those words and hear those words without going into convulsions. Again. That's what I said. It can't be that much of a snowflake. Just like you know, I can I can hear something I disagree with. Ah, if I think it's especially if I think it's coming from a good place and and not Have it ruined everything about my life in that very moment. Right and How could you possibly disagree with the statement? Black lives matter. So there you have it. D. J. Higgins Suites in the return of baseball isn't a distraction from the world Fall apart. It's part of the world rebuilding and it's entertainment in an effort towards normalcy. That Kai was a moron. I guess he was referencing. Ah, previous collar. Yeah, I mean it. Look. The these things are multi layered right now. You can't talk about the return of sports without talking about state of the country, right and the pathetic response that our country has had. To this pandemic, which has cost thousands and thousands of lives. I mean, overall, hundreds of thousands of lives were looking at well over 100,000 now, but probably You know that the number would be drastically lower if we had had a better response not only at the beginning, but but now we see these numbers going up in other places, and I don't say that to take any shots at any. Anyone. But you know that sort of thing starts at leadership is just the matter of the fax, and it's pointed out by what's going on in With Toronto. And the Blue Jays. Where you had candidates like Canada has their numbers under control. Canada has our numbers under control. And they're like, no, we're not going to allow you to come to and from the United States where it's out of control. I mean, where I live Right now. The numbers are under control and You know, New York said the any coming from Florida someplace like that. You gotta you gotta quarantine yourself. So that's all part of the dynamics of the return of sports. Why some people have been hesitant to see sports return because they're concerned, rightfully so. I have been in favour of sports returning because Look, there's there's a lot of There's a lot of ancillary benefits to sports returning. Right? I mean one. Yes, there's just the entertainment. There's the entertainment that can be helpful to all of us. Nobody. You know, I feel for everybody out there like I know this has been hard. This hasn't been easy for anybody..
