Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson
"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

"Approached those guys in the past few days and said, how would you feel about us bringing back Boga we're looking into this and every single one of those guys signed off on it. You know, one thing that's interesting is I don't wanna say he left the words on bad terms. But I don't think he was stoked about how you know that situation. You know, he had some quotes after he was traded. Dow's about how he felt like, you know, they weren't necessarily totally honest about their pursuit of drat. Like they felt like he felt like they were actively planning on bringing in the entire seizing leading up to it. And you wonder if that's water under the bridge or if that's going to resurface at any point good point. I think he did leave under less than ideal circumstances. I think they were a little wary. I mean, I wasn't around the team every day. But from what I heard they were a little wary of maybe him getting older, and maybe not being as tough as they thought. He was. He's he's a rugged player the way he plays his kind of tough. But he's also, you know. He's not a journeyman center in many ways. I mean, he's not he's not a star any means into. And I certainly don't want to mislead people to think, and this is gonna solve all the warriors issues because it's not and it's interesting. Why Clint Robin Lopez wasn't made available on the buyout market. I'm sure they would have preferred to find someone who's been little more NBA tested this season. So in that sense. This was the best of the alternatives. Right. This wasn't there number one choice. But once those options didn't materialize than that's where they turn. And as you said, I think they're probably would have been a lot more skepticism if you have to integrate a guy who's never played in this system doesn't have any familiarity with Steve Kerr, and very importantly doesn't have any with curry and Thomson and those guys and it obviously does I mean one of my enduring memories of his time. Here is the way he sets screens for curry and Thomson, right? And what could be more valuable on the offensive side than that? But I think and as I wrote in today for the for the website and tomorrow's printed edition. This is mostly about defense. Everyone focuses the casual fan, I think focuses on offense and how affects the ability to score points. But this is mostly about stopping the opponent from scoring points in stopping a big center from bruising the warriors in the playoffs for the warriors. As we've talked about a million times all that matters the playoffs, and you need to think of when you're planning and preparing for the plastic, and you think of every possibility everything that can go wrong, and you look at there are any there too many glaring weaknesses with this roster right now. But one of the potential vulnerabilities is if you lose DeMarcus cousins as of right now, you're kind of screwed you don't have another legitimate. Big man who can you know, eat up space and match the size of the Stephen seen atoms and Rudy go bears of the world as we talked about. You know, you look at their path to the finals every single one of those teams that they potentially face has a legit. Limit seven footer that was not the case a couple years ago. The league is kind of volved in that way. You know, you got nervous with Portland you have Yokich with them for you have. Go bears even Adams, obviously, the east all four. Those teams are legitimate threats in the east have legitimate, prototypical centers brook Lopez three point shooter, but he's also seven feet tall. Right. And I think your point is valid I think in many ways as much as the warriors maybe see bogut as spelling cousins in these matchups. I think they're also protecting themselves because knowing that cousins is still coming off an achilles injury..

"So that means James harden has seventeen consecutive thirty point games longest streak by an NBA players Wilt Chamberlain in the nineteen sixty three sixty four season. That's the good news for the rockets the bad news. They learn Clint Capella will miss four to six weeks with ligament damage to his right thumb earlier on the jump. This is a damaging blow. He was one of the best and role players in the league. I mean, he finished when James harden drove away with lobs and dunks. He was a defensive anchor for them. Now. I don't know what they do. I mean, we already knew they have problems with their defense early in the year. They picked it up. He's a big part of that. But if he's out you can see the deepest struggle. And maybe they they have to figure some things out. Yeah. This is Ross mean they don't have a lot of fours who can up size to the five and then data very. Moment of the game. You can certainly get by with that. Doc, and they now you talking about like Robin Lopez one of these big sitting on a veteran on a on a lousy team. They're going to have to really many targets or you just like, can you just tread water with the step back for about six weeks? Keep up this. If they want to stay in this race. Yeah. He he certainly is gonna have to do that. And look they've dealt with plenty of injuries. We know Chris Paul and when I was in Houston couple of days ago. Basically, they told us their hope is to get him back before the end of the month and Gordon's dealt with some injuries. So it's gonna be fascinating to kind of see how this goes down. The one thing that plays in their favor is that they do have fifteen games until the all star break. And as I'm looking at the schedule here of those fifteen games only five or against teams above five hundred. It'd be the grizzlies on Monday one twelve ninety four pelicans one twenty one seventeen what over the clippers forty six points, sixteen rebounds for Anthony Davis his tenth career forty five and fifteen game fourth straight game with at least thirty points ties, the longest streak of his career James harden has seventeen thirty point games and counting.

Yeah. Like grand after the game just said, yeah. He was just trying to have. Just wants to throw down to. Guys being dude? That it was funny. Lopez getting checked in three minutes later, just dropping the ball on grant. I guess it was better than this guy's being. I do like the potential matchup of Stephen Adams versus Robin Lopez. I think that would be a good heavyweight bout. There's a part where like, Robin. Lopez is trying to point super heart at somebody. But Stephen Adams hasn't by the wrist and like Robin Lopez Cam move his hand, which is crazy because Robin Lopez it's huge too. Adams like if he's in the fight. He's just like grabbing a guy back I just anymore. Yeah. I can't remember who it was a couple of weeks ago. Someone pushed even Adams just band. So it was it really coli Stein. Maybe it was a skinny big. Like, Stephen Adams is just got that crazy straight. He's not even the strongest person. Scary. Jesus. I loved her in the two thousand sixteen Olympics. What you in silver? Thank I don't know. She met owed. But oh, really. Yeah. She's metal before I believe what is pretty nice here in Atlanta. But yet still want hit the beach. Anyway, I do I do let's do it. it. You want to take a little bit of that water met splash down on the sale you build a sand castle. Let's see. Emphasize. I'm not crushing the bottle at all. I'm gingerly touching it. I'm taking a sip.

There you go before we started the show the deadly knocked like over the bottle a little bit a little bit probably, and then sort of grabbing it you grabbed it quick.

The first time during the show, it's sort of did the pop back the rebound. Yeah. I love crushing it. I think that's what happened crushing it all guys being dude. We're on the beach reading your tweets in your emails. Our first one is from Zach Zach writes starters, I believe I have an interesting topic that I haven't heard you guys mentioned yet Darren FOX is having a breakout your so far I don't wanna piss off skeets, but he's my front runner for most improved player. So far the question I have for you guys is will FOX make the all star game. And does he deserve to make it to where he got do keep it up again that's from Zach. So there's there's two parts one. The most improved seeing FOX's name being thrown around a long this. I just hate it. Because I think it's silly to give to a second year player. We don't need to go over that time and time again, but would you consider him the front runner? No. Because I don't know. Any second-year player out of the equation take away your earn rules? Do you consider him to win it the based on the way the award get one? I understand the question of. No, I don't think he's going. I don't I think the last second year player to win. I don't know if. Was it ever happened? That would be hilarious Pacific. Can you play? His never won. Oh, I'm hated the idea of even considering that person for most Most Pruitt. pruitt. Oh, well, yeah. Because you're the one that wants to have a front runner care. But I'm saying if these would doesn't get why. There's a good reason to buy you should improve. Wow. It's crazy to think you should improve in your second year in the NBA guys improve guys just sit on a bench for an entire year. Like Bill, Ben Simmons, Bill Simmons has also. Ben Simmons and not Bill seven son, Ben Simmons. He's also improved as well. I'm sure but anyway, been some should won most improved. Yes. Hey, bro. I'm just saying. Anyway..

And I knew the election coverage would dominate the night. And so I turned on the TV after we finished eating, and then I looked at I turn to my wife. Ooh. Dookie kentucky. Right. We Zayn Williamson. And I could not believe the display that do CAD like Duke said great championship teams. Yeah. I don't believe they've ever had enough. That's a crazy. George's. Even saying these three guys could be the first three picks in the draft Gregoire saying Williamson looks like he's twenty five. This is the best group of freshmen since filling the plank fab. Some of the Kentucky. Defeated who was on that team. Jalen rolling. Ray jackson. I mean who else would have been a freshman on that team. Chris, oh, would've it have been like there was another center, right? Trey Lyles had been on that team. Yeah. Late team. Maybe what about the shock was after capitalism. I don't Devon Booker. Will they call it? That's the big cheese got hyphen. So is Willie Stein cat Devon Booker. And think about that. This is the best of the bunch. Oh, yeah. I mean, he's something. That's what we were saying someone tweeted being a listener. And this goes into the Alabama versus buffalo is one of our listeners. Who was a great tweeter? Really good guy. He believes Duke could beat the Cavs with our Kevin love. I don't think that. I don't know. I mean, you got three. Yeah. But still I picks in the draft. I mean you. Be more willing to contemplate that an Alabama versus any NFL Alabama competed NFL now mean there's guys on album team. They're nineteen up on Cleveland with these guys Jared Smith playing right now wherever they out wherever they have talking about men versus boy. He's a man he looks like a man to me. I don't know. I mean, drives lane and gets up high. He'll get undercut and you're. Catch coaching a some. Somebody pointed punk you. Instead. Popcorn. And sat there we go. Let's watch the record. I can tell my grandkids. I was there when you hit all those shots. Why do you say? Why did you how did he go south? They sounded like he was in a small rural town in South Carolina. Why the use of the female voice? I don't get it. It's very disrespect. I agree. I was telling black in Zetter, man. I was getting ready to work out had them on today. Same two dudes cap in Jordan and last spring after cap sat courtside like four seats over from Freddie, was he talking. Remember it was the game where he was on camera cheering for the bulls pulled out a win. Everyone was busted kept saying why are you rooting for them to win in this spring later in the year Catholic came on the next day? This was a great win. They shouldn't take they should play Rollo. They should play holiday. They should play. All these guys. This team is growing forget the tank today. He's on in November saying don't bring back Lowery saying to tank and do not play any of these guys who need to grow. I'm just so confused you doctor the x Ray. So one of the doctor the extra. I don't get. It was so confused. So if he goes through another game sits by Fred, it'll be all your guys. And I said that Jim last year it'll kept the only reason you're saying this is because you sat next to Friday. He was probably you. No, no, no. No. No, no. And now all of a sudden. I was yelling last year. Yelling. And I'm like, they gotta get sit. Justin holiday. You. Sit Robin Lopez. There's the trade deadline pass it there's no use in playing these guys know Selvi. There's a big win is good win. Have you ever become so infuriated with cap while? You're listening to it that it ruins your Cup. Everything ruins my work. I mean is there anything worse than working out? You're looking for an excuse to have you. I mean, you could it could be anything if I get to sometimes I get to the quarter point of a mile run. And you're like this. Yeah. Anything? I'd be watching whatever on television on my television in front of me, and it won't. Right afterwards. But every part during the workout don't even feel great. And you're just looking to get through it. I feel great. I feel great when I get drunk to drug, but then like Jordan our arguing about lock in that last week. This is just the bulls lock, Sylvia. Made this point first of all they're going to. They they loved Duke guys dukes never had a group of guys like this. And they're not even going to be a position to draft one of them. Yeah. Lucky that they got the first pick. And they got dare. That's right now, they're gonna all these guys come back. They're going to Twenty-eight games. They're going to pick this tenth. We've got. What is happening have gotten every Duke player available everyone cruise on in the second round Lou Alday number seven that they traded for Elton brand years ago. They got Wendel Carter at seven this year. Who else there's Jabari Parker is on their team. Now, you could go on and on and on. And now the the time to get the Duke guys, you watch they're going to be drafting nine hundred ten yes, they are see this is where the conundrum is for me. Because know what you do because you can't not wanna play lower. Need to continue to see whether or not done is your guy does not plan and I won't complain anymore. My plan is you trade. Justin holiday for whatever you get for. Okay. If they want to give you the last pick of the second round, you say fine. You trade Robin Lopez. You get him off your team, you trade every guy that possibly doesn't have any sort of a future. This isn't even play in fairness. I mean, he really. When he found out. I want them off. Struggle to play you play campaign. You play Shrek you play blankety. You play any guy who may have. Jimmy blakeney. What's his late knee plagued knee? All these guys like me. RTD nocco. Fired up became. RTD you everybody thought his name was Archie. The. Greco you play. These guys you sign guys off the G league these professional role guys need to go. You trade Jabari. I know now I wanted to shout Jabari 'cause I wanted to know just a bar Jabari of a role with be going forward. We know he's got no role with this team going forward with their next. No rebe what they're gonna ultimately when they're going to be good at you, get rid of all these guys. Then if they're good enough where they don't pick in the top five. So be it because I'm playing only young guys who could have future with no reason to play you do holiday seven, Lena true. You still have to fill out your roster. Night around because he doesn't play from the from the G league who wears an Awada. I don't know. With somebody. Guys, you sign him. No. I'm just saying I. All I'm saying is you can't play all your guys. Forty eight minutes. Cavs have all he's on that team. Hey, it's gonna play. He's gonna take. These guys probably shan't trade Jabbar into what after the first of the year. But whatever you can signed you signed him. Fifth in the league in scoring at this point Zak. Yeah, I think so bad, and I'm opening I've told you guys this before I'm open to trading Portis this year because what really are you hoping for with Bobby Portis if he signed him to a long term deal? He's a dime guy old guy. Old guys. They need stars superstars. He's coming back. Right now. Bobby Portis is no ch I mean, like address. No, tony. And you got me these silly. Silvy came around. I wish they didn't sign ain't signing to an extension. You've got that going. Good as no Cioni. Yeah. You might not don't show. It's true. I mean, not only had people singing about those those are just guy. Maybe you can get an a pick for Portis like he did for miratec. No. Rail against the port is thing until they give him a big money contract extended please point please helping you win game. I'm with you. And at the end of the year when you're looking for a draft pick somebody is then that's then you're hurting yourself. I want to play Hutchison. I want to play Levin. I want to play marketing when he comes back. I will all these guys are the guys to play. You liked touches so much. He told them a month before the draft. You were. Fifteen minutes against index. Packs Ingar, I go downstairs after that Nick game. And I tell my coach, you know. But again, this is the problem now. Ride, the coaches why need wins. I might get fired. I trust holiday. But if I'm the GM I'm going downstairs saying why are we not playing the guy drafted the top twenty in triple overtime game. Why is he playing really good point? Because you need to take that decision out of the hands of the coach you. Why he needs to know coached away should coach you'll you'll coach Huggins coach that has no he doesn't care about anything. I'm dictated to what I need to do on the bench. I've I've got a five year deal. I'd sit on the bench. I wouldn't say a word I'd say systems go head coaching where you want to start practicing because you're eventually going to be the coach anyway, brutal spot to spot anytime. You're the head basketball coach here in Chicago. Hire their fifth coach they're going to hire their fifth coach a lot is that is that fair. And then the good one was just a pain in the rumpus. I know they finally got the guy that coveted for so long, right? And there's a reason why he didn't have a head job, by the way. Yes. In the ball's rolling to go ahead and take that chance, and maybe ignore some things that were said about him and making the coach proves that gonna be out at the end of this year with a good player.
