"And beyond that, they got that centerpiece and I don't think it sabotages their ability to get another. So I think the magic are going to be one of the 5 horse teams in the week next year. That doesn't guarantee you're going to get that player in the 2022 draft, but that's the they avoided the mistake that a lot of teams do, which is, okay, you got one guy that you really like and then, okay, Isaac and full to this front office just resigned. You know, you get into all that guy stuff. I was like, okay, you get maybe one or two, more bites at that Apple and so then by that point, so this is awesome. Great. Yeah, no. They have not hampered their ability to evaluate the roster. Other than maybe at the center position depending on how much Robin Lopez plays. But if mo bamba can't beat out Robin Lopez at this point, that's a problem. For Orlando and that says something in and of itself, I think. Just in general, this is the steam's fine. They're rolling right along. They are going to be bad this year. They now have a direction, though, because they have Jalen suggs. I'm a little bit lower on Franz Wagner, much as you are, but I still think he's fine and I still think he'll be a valuable rotation player for Orlando going forward. We'll see where it goes, right? So Orlando look doesn't matter if they got better or worse this summer, but they now have a clear direction and they are building around jail and suggs. And honestly, probably will be more exciting to watch at the very least. Maybe that's the way to put it, right? Yeah. And I think that there are big benefits to owning where you are. And I think that Orlando is going to reap those benefits over the course of the next year, but more accurately over the course of the.

"You're going to be able to find minutes for all of those guys at that position. I think it's gonna be tough especially considering they wanna get off the minutes. I don't concilazione playing eighteen minutes a game Batons who is on an eighty million dollar contract exactly and now you wonder what his role is going to be coming into it. I just i feel like there is something there that could potentially bring in a wing potentially bring in another guard. They could still use some playmaking they could still use. Help defensively like you said. That could be one solution for all of it. I don't know where where they're going to go the stuff they've got three centers who command playing time to i mean gifford was great for them down the stretch Thomas bryant and mantras herald or a little bit redundant they kind of give you a lot of the same stuff energy. They're screening role guys. Brian can shoot the three but he's going to miss the beginning of this year so we don't know his exact timetable coming off in asia. I liked thomas brian. I think he's made again. The questions are always going to be defense and rebounding with him. I think he's gotten incrementally better at those things but not better enough that you trust him to really anchor a playoff team for twenty five minutes. A game but offensively. He's he's got a chance to be really dynamic. Offensively i mean. He shot seventy five percent at the rim two years in a row and remember his rookie year. He shot something. Like seventy eight or seventy nine percent at the rim and i was wondering that is that a sustainable thing for him and he came out his second year when he was dealing with foot injuries to and he did it again a second year. He's he's not this guy who's going to finish over you very often. But he's really skilled finishing around the rim sets good screens rolls really hard and you talk about propping up regular season another way that you can prop up. A regular season is just have have have guys who play really really hard even when they're going up against the pistons in mid february and it's the second night of back to back. I think bryant is one of those guys. He's very helpful from that perspective. In the regular season. And i think herald is one of those guys to where he can help you for an eighty two game slate. Also a so. I think at least off the bat they'll have gaffer they'll have herro assuming there are no moves made there and then they kind of just have a situation where the three centres can you imagine if they play a three center rotation for the second year in a row. I know they just. They just did this with alex. Len robin lopez and daniel effort at the end of the season. And they all like they all did stuff. That'd be robin lopez. I'm just gonna say afraid. Cats robin lopez became a national sensation for his hook shot. Finally his hook shot which has been really good for a long time. Finally got the attack every broadcast. You gotta watch out for the robin. Oh there it is. it looks goofy. Buddy goes in every broadcast. Every local broadcasts saw the wizards. So maybe they'll do got. Why not yeah. I mean i eight. They're going to have to let that kind of stuff figure out. But i'll i'll tell you this much. This is not a problem. The wizards are used to having even when they were when they were good and getting four seeds five seeds maybe challenging to win playoff series seventeen. They win forty nine games and come game away from the eastern conference finals when they lost to the celtics and seven in the second round. Those those teams weren't particularly deep. Those teams want on their starting lineups with wall and bill and and market morrison and otto porter cortott like those teams won because of the strength is starting lineups and as soon as the reserves came in menu looked at the plus minuses. When when the too many first stringers off the floor at all those lineup breakdowns. And it was. Like the bench will get pulverized and i feel like this team has a potential for for having been able to get good minutes out of the bench. I think it's really plausible. I think they could probably mix and match good amount and they just kind of have a lot of guys. If someone's not able to go it's like okay. Cow kouzmines gonna play four more minutes in now. Now i guess bertone's is gonna play thirty five and air twenty five and maybe he can hit seven threes like they. They have options. You know. that's not something that's new. That's new for the wizards. Let's zoom way out because you mentioned 2017 when you know. They faced off against isaiah. Thomas who had an epic a couple of games in that series it went to seven and they lost I think the bill wall wizards are underrated because the wizards are just a punchline because ten leonsis once every year will say something regrettable and calling jordan crawford andrew blatch and who was the other member of the new big three wall. I guess right was that that was the new big three in a since deleted blog posts because their mascot is the wizards and they had to goofy logo with the stupid wizard hat and because they lose a lot. I like over decades. I think so. Let's put it in perspective from nineteen eighty to nineteen hundred hundred. You're not born in nineteen eighty two. Where you know. I wasn't i was. I was little kindergarten student running around. Learn my.

He does not want to be here anymore, does not want to play for the franchise that drafted in 10 years ago. He had many very good seasons. All Star in fact. But he's missed basically the last two years because of AH knee injury, and there were reports that the Wizards were shopping in for possibly was the Westbrook of the Houston Rockets. There was also discussion. This is Bradley Beals team and on the same night that Darvis Burton signs of five year $80 million deal with the Wizards. John Wall, says he does not want to play for the Wizards anymore. Also wizards reportedly signing free Agent center Robin Lopez too. A deal so much coming at you fast.

"That's my guy do it. Yeah. Yeah, just just take him but I think you're right. I think you are right that it is that it's important that the Lakers consider that they not playing the right piece, but they'll and the right piece that will be around when Anthony Davis is without LeBron. And that's what they got in denish router PJ Tucker would not be that as perfect of a fit as he would be if you can get some other way. I'm all for it. But giving up Kyle kuzma. I think you've saved that asset for either figuring out is kuzma the piece that we want maybe he becomes that or can we trade him for that guy off? That we do want with him, right? All right. Let's see. What else we got. Its people asking about Marcus Morris. Would you combine the Morris twins on the Lakers? I don't really care about I don't care about having the Wonder Twin Powers. But if you could get both of them, would you do it now? I to me the Lakers, I want it to be professional. I never liked the idea of going to get Lonzo ball and then going to get his brother and then bring having it to me anytime. You see Brothers on the court at some point the GM was like wouldn't it be cool if we get the brothers on the same team? It's to me if anyone who's played on an amateur team any time there's two brothers on the team. One of them is stinking up the joint and the other one is performing and it just it's a conflict of interest. It's awkward. It's weird. It's bad for team morale and I love the Lakers Morale on this team last year and I don't want to do anything to make that up. Yeah. Yeah. I'm with you on that one. I'd it's if the price is right. Okay, but it's nothing. I'm going out of my way to do. It depends on the browser. I mean Robin Lopez and Brook Lopez. Yeah, we're fine for the bucks. So, you know, I mean it can work but different group they're yes. That's true. They're so focused on Long Island that they they really don't have.

debut of Sime Williams and and then they cancel the game because of the earthquake what do you recall from that night because it must have been crazy be in Vegas I wasn't in the building that I brought with them they get that you know when whenever something is moving in your and as in the house in the hotel the eighteenth floor and it while wearing it was weighing backing for the year like while what is this and I'm watching the game and I heard doors Burke no mention of earthquakes I know kind of know what it was with the use of all like the the shock when everyone stayed up there was it was through the door for a moment for for photos let me ask got one more for Kerry Kittles before we let him run he's been great in the sack guild show on CBS sports radio getting back to the Sixers in the box I think the big thing is the development of Ben Simmons jump shot and also Jana Sangh to the **** bow for Yanis we know he's already won MVP Ben still has a ways to go but it showed a lot of promise how do you work on that jump shot in the summer how do you get that confidence up because for Ben I think the confidence is it shook a little bit when it comes to a shooting that jumper yes you know Jana the great example right I mean he he barely took three leading up to this the them and typical crazily but this year you know if he was open he wasn't hesitating and I think for a band you'll be on billion dollar watch the amount on the Grammys shooting jumpers in pick up games that's where it starts obviously everyone working the jump shot you know with trainers are with the coaches are just like work out guys but did not yet the building competition right now you'd play pick up basketball games or some of the game's whatever it is and he's taking sought out of the pain which we we we haven't seen we could really you know what and then what the season starts in the US the thing thing increase in almost for himself take those out for the price of those out before you've made them in practice now get to do it in the game when about a lot when the lights are on and then that would be then goes on like John it you grow more comfortable taking a shot and then now you're a threat from a pretty poor rains I mean John this was taking three them making them against the raptors which was kind of cool to watch to development Hey Jerry is always fun to watch you play and even more fun to get to know you over the last few years best when you're at Princeton I can't thank you enough for give us a few minutes thanks for coming on over the bridge of the deck no

though I lost a Malcolm Brogden dad robin Lopez you bring in a lefty Mathews as well and I like that Bucks the my do I I think they should be the favorites right now and the right behind the miss Philadelphia fifty four and a half I like with Philadelphia did in terms of bringing out Horford I don't think the by sars what the contract they gave him but you got to keep them for giving up lander sham it and it looked like Jimmy Butler did not want to return so I'm Philly a like I said the parents coming down to the shooting you know do what you all and be theirs but it's coming down to the shooting of Ben Simmons every develops the conference take that jumper I Celtics at three to four nine and a half no no complaints there it's a little bit surprising I like their coach David Miller the old people back Pacers fourth pays Bob place projected in the east at forty eight and a half that's a forty seven nets roster yet yonder Jordan your car your big you guys Spencer Dinwiddie caris

I'm not trying to dismal walkie which like, or my cheese brothers neighbors. Right. We're but no. If I could sleep mo- bit me our to get back. Look. I'm wired after games. I'm not going to sleep till three AM anyway. So you're not staying in Milwaukee, you're staying in Chicago and your training it up to Milwaukee. Yes. Great train ride on Amtrak's, our twenty like it couldn't be better. I don't even know there was a trade. How pathetic am? I didn't know there was a train, and then I went to Union Station I got on the train like just scores of people going to the game. The people who live in Milwaukee, working here live here, but working walkie. Whatever the case with a combination is and just people also unaffiliated unaffiliated. So the people who might be from Toronto. Let's say who were you see in Chicago, hanging out here, live here, and they want to go to Milwaukee, you know, you don't wanna drive. You don't wanna drive right now ninety four as as a tunnel construction, just especially at night. They shot it down. Oh my goodness. Ray train. Where are you? You entertained by what they saw last night, the first of all, if you go see on Kubo and I was upset earlier in the year because Janas didn't play in Washington. I took Matthew game body, spins succeed sat, there are no Jaanus load-bearing. What does it? What do they call this thing? Now when they rest people, oh, no. The manager manager so no Janas that night in Washington. So, so the MVP of the league, I, I haven't seen this. Right. I don't think I've seen him play live there. There's like twice this year. I was at a game. And Janas didn't play I've hard like twenty times live. I, I haven't seen you on his so. Yeah. I mean just a chance to see him to chance to see Robin Lopez. Go crazy and scored twenty nine. Brother, browser broke you seen all of these teams now, who's, I mean, they're like every, I still believe the warriors even without Kevin Durant. I would always just I would lean to them, but are the books had the best record in the NBA. Do you think the best team in the NBA the warriors the best team in the NBA and I I'm not to sound bad, if you know neighboring team the walkie. Oh, you're bulls fan. You don't I, I like Milwaukee. I like the arena. I like the people they have on their team. There's I like the people in the front office. I like the coach. There is nothing you, you can't raise an issue about the Milwaukee Bucks. It's not like all of them starters stars bench players. All of them. They are likable, what they've done how they built a team all of it. So I don't have anything of guest, the bucket that when you when you're twenty eight and one without Kevin Durant, but with Steph curry that is the most insane number. In sports, you know, we were inundated by numbers of, as tyranny of numbers, it just washes over us because we now sorry, we have two generations of people that don't even know how to spend a narrative they don't they can't assist sports. I can't look. They gotta have numbers. And so now we when we hit with a number that ought to be earth-shattering. We don't even know that this is earth, shattering number twenty eight and one with Steph curry, and without Kevin Durant. The combination is that, that, that doesn't go back to the Cavs series where they blew it, though down. Three one is this, here's where he wasn't on that team Durant? Was it on? So this is a while. He's been on the missed the Gaza warrior. Okay, if he missed and Curry's played twenty eight now with that set and that speaks to the depth and all of the greatness of the warriors, it's foolish to come to the conclusion that they're a better team about K D. Tommy, it is. You can't like I can't even make my mouth say that. Right. Right. So, so the other night coming off the court when they were really worried about they were really worried about Durant. I mean, I think they still ain't going. Yeah. Because he's not reports. He's limping he's but, but I'm talking about when they thought it was twenty Killys the players on the team thought it was a torn achilles. And then walking off the court. And I. I just remember look on steps face and sort of, you know how where he was at that moment. He's not thinking as a matter of fact, he said, we, I'm worried man. It's the best player in the league. That's what he said. Steph curry said. Right. And so, and he's just not somebody who is born to wild exaggeration or any of that who is, is a thoughtful do. And I in real time, I'm thinking, oh my God, they got away with game five but they can't possibly win game. Six houston. That's what I thought. And then what you, would you realize this, you know what I'm not going to be as critical of Houston as others are in this business include my different Charles Barkley who said they were dogs the other night. So and I gotta talk to Charles about this. We have a chance today. At the rockets that failed four out of five times, aren't they just Utah Jazz in the New York, Knicks and time is given us perspective? We don't trash them. We don't trust stock. So you're telling me, it's not Patrick Ewing, and Charles Pippin, and Michael didn't miss anything like K D messed bellyaching last year. That, hey, Chris Paul was out most particularly bad. Yeah. I was one of the people by that argument, I invite anymore. But I'm just saying we did not so so Houston's flawed. Okay. The flawed. They're not good enough. You're not great. They're not great. When you have to be great and Golden State is I'm cool with that. But I just think I'm not I'm done with trying to bury the rockets for what they aren't we haven't done that justifiably, we have not done that with other teams had great players. They so what's, so what, what do we say about the jazz, the only jazz couldn't do beat Jordan and allies you on. And the same thing goes Charles, and the same thing goes, Reggie Miller and the same thing goes for Shawn Kemp, and Gary Payton, Gary got one in Miami. But I mean when they were in their all hall of famers, all great, but Michael again, like, if I know Scotty missed the last two games of a series or Michael missed the last two games. And then you taught him beat them. Kevin. Michael, but no, but Kevin Durant was playing his good of play basketball Steph was playing his bad is he's ever played in the plan was, so maybe we get a rea- dress tummies question about whether the better. I mean, look, here's the one thing that, that apparently is true. And I did dream on green, who's just really people may get tired of Jane, Margaret, whatever they feel about him. He's one of the smartest players I've ever talked to just instinctive in that way. Draymond green said the other night to somebody. I don't even know what was I was in group, but he said that, sometimes they get lazy when Kevin Durant plan. And they know they can just toss it to them, and they don't work like they worked without him before. It's a great observation even if we'll dream. I the saying I know this to be true. He too is wondering what gives you what, why is this dynamic in play? And when he said that it's like man what a great observation. The listen. The race car goes faster when Kevin is there. You still have to drive it. You know what I'm saying? So when. When you talk about the potential of everybody filling the role that they need to fill with Kevin Durant, is there that is a better, that's a better basketball team than when he's not there is this also Stephan clay. We only have a to a two game sample quarter. Right. I don't wanna go crazy about this. That's why I refuse to answer. Yes, they're better. Let's see tonight too. I was going to say what was with all that said, I would be shocked if Portland did have a better effort tonight. They're going to figure out. We got a garden differently. The plan a is not the plan. You know, whatever was going under on screens, and no, he's not gonna just miss the shots. Houston was physical. They were tough with him. Right. They got into him. They committed plays by be call fouls. I don't know that Lillard Lillard and, and McConnell McCollum sort of built like that. Houston beefy men, they got dudes, who PJ Tucker is ADA, he's a great. He's like in the next generation whose after Bruce Bowen, what PJ took is one of them. He's that he's so they can't Portland can't do that. So they got to do something else.

I don't know how tickets named like muppet or something. I don't know how golden doodle is. But I I would imagine that. See I'm a dog person. So that's what I noticed Lopez. I did notice that I don't know how golden doodle is. But I would say that he's staying here for a reason. So it's not the dog at something. Okay. Suggesting off the court. I just I'm just thinking that he wants to stay here for a reason. I don't want that in a tanking season where you're going backwards as a franchise this season. There's no reason for him to be on the floor thirty two minutes a game. All right. And I get it. He is a better player in allows while remarketing to be a better player. But right now, we are not seeing law remark and be at his best which is not good for a bulls fan who wants to see them. Do what is your mortgage hausky suggests and make the ploughs next year? Right. Shouldn't this be where we look at marketing and heading towards the stretch run saying, wow that guy's going to be a star next season. Not just a seventeen and ten guy. He's just a guy and the guy I think Jonathan if you take a look at the the month stats from month to month outside last February you see a lot of the fifteen seventeen ten rebounds. That's that's what remarketing is let me put a bow on all this for you. Those numbers are good because it tells a great story about what's going on with this bull's team. But let me let me put a bowl on this path. Package and the boat is is that the bulls will not be able to be a better team or a perennial playoff team unless they have someone as a forward thinking head coach, I think that the idea that you fire Fred Hoiberg. You wanna do that? Because you had Fred fatigue. We have Fred fatigue. So I understand. Remember when you take a look at what's happening here with this team. You're got to find someone who can get the job done that can be able to get the most obvious players. It's not about motivation. It's about numbers. Okay. It's about hey, I've got three point shooters on the floor. We gotta be able to get the ball up. So we can compete if you're not going to get done defensively, you're gonna have to the other option is to be able to utilize at three point shot as much as possible. Of course, that's all based on personnel to guys active shooter three they should be doing that a lot more than rather than just passing the basketball. I mean when I looked up the stats. I was amazed at the fact that they're twenty-seventh in the league in attempts. But they shoot the three point shot. Well for a team that we've complained about not shooting the ball. Well, they're shooting. Well, true shooting percentage thirteenth top half of the NBA three point percentage. You're twelfth. You're almost top ten. Well, that's pretty good in the last fifteen games. I'm gonna say I'm an answer. Man. You have the facts, but I'm an answer, man. So I like I like that. So so how does that get better? How does it get better is is that when when you have ownership? Okay. Will you have ownership, and when you have gar Forman John Paxson saying that that Jim boilers doing a good job? That means that they don't even understand that the team could be better and better coached. They don't even get that. You realize that Nate McMillan's doing more with less you understand that that what's happening in Brooklyn where you do have players. You have quality players. Would you put him in position to to win? Yeah. Kenny Atkinson, coach for Brooklyn. You could do that. You know? I mean, you you have Brooklyn you have you just gave me who's the team? You just said. No star on the Rosser. Right. Right. But they're winning at high level. And what the heck are the clippers doing still in the playoff spot? Right. They traded away their best player because they're saving cap space to go after free agents this summer. Oh, wait, but docs, not laying them lose their still winning. They're putting guys in the right position. I just keep in mind. Now, we're talking about talent because talents number one in sports in general in the NBA talent coaching scheme, those three now again, you think they're coaching scheme that the same. No, it's different because if you have a game plan if you have a mission statement on what you wanna do game the game to be able to win ballgames. There's a scheme there that's got to be in place, but coaching as well. So there's by the way, just I don't know if she thinks she's coming in here. But I thought it was very interesting the Toni preckwinkle gave a little wave your. She got looked up at our our our sign here by I'm shaking my dog. You're not coming in here. You're probably do it. So for channel seven day to she was here yesterday. Don't you practically? Apparently giving her was it coming to give her hoops thoughts. If if preckwinkle comes in for hoops thoughts, then we have to call Lightfoot offer some baseball combo, right? We turn down to newsman. Dan Zimmerman with more, Dan. Is there a possibility you could run out in the rain and get get Toni preckwinkle gentleman as much as I would love to and thanks for asking. We're up against the break. Did there? Yeah. Book Lightfoot for MLB talk at some point today. Is that possible, fair and balanced? She looked over looked up for. Yeah. You're not coming on freckly cool to talk anything she she was coming in. But you can't come in here without Lightfoot next to you. So you can't do that. I don't know what she thinks she's doing, but you can't have both. You can't come in here. And talk hoops with us by tell you one thing and that was Bryce Harper out there Danny would have been gone by now. Yeah. It's not every day as you. Why? I love you Cup in two years.

"And then they trade it off Greg Monroe. They've got ten players on their roster. I'd never seen this before. Where are team after the deadline has ten players. They they're supposed to have fourteen. So they're going to Pell to sign four. I don't know if they'll sign five I've never seen anything like it. But they will potentially be able to improve their team even more so two things. First of all the quote of the day came from Robin Lopez in Chicago who said that after the Milwaukee Bucks trade he feels bad for Nikola Marich because miratec has had the quote superior experience playing with him. And now has to go play with Brooke so Rollo making it clear the in his mind. The inferior Lopez brother now is going to be nNcholas plate. I do think it's interesting to ask the players this as we talked about this arms race has developed through the afternoon. How would you now rank you love the market trade? You love the Toronto trade you like the Tobias Harris move from Philadelphia Boston didn't make a big deal today. But they did open up a roster spot. So we expect them to be active in the buyout market. Put your money where your mouth is Mr. hosted the hoopla collective who is the number one team to beat in the east. No, you don't know.

"We'll hear from Antonio Daniels NBA champion and from Sirius XM MBA radio with me coming up at eight ten we'll do some tales from the hood got to do that kinda smile after today. After the press conference from the bulls. And and with the bulls have done we'll have tales from hood coming up at eight thirty five here on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app. But I think it's I think it's pretty simple that if you are rooting for this team, you're looking for something better. I think we're all looking for something better. Because I will I said this about the bears, and I'll say this about the bolts it is so much easier to talk about a team that's on the rise a team that is playoff bound. It's much easier to talk about a team that's doing. Well. The team is always languishing in always just floundering. And that's exactly where the bulls are right now, there's a team that just continues to you know, you hear the excuses or reasons, however, you want to classify it and to me it's just not good enough tone. Forty two's is not good enough in this in this city. Just isn't you look at the core of Chris done? Zach LeVine auto Puerto junior Lauri Markkanen as well as. Robin lopez. And I I don't know. Why Robin Lopez still on this roster? Don't understand there's a guy there that needs to be with the warriors or some other team because he's given a yeoman's like effort doing the best. He can. But I think that he should be on this roster. Keep in mind, also in some of the stuff that you already know. But I just I just need to put out there on the record that because of this move that took place yesterday. It's not like the bulls are going to be in the top three top four top five when it comes to the draft. And if you thought that maybe the bulls would be down there with Atlanta or the Knicks or the sun's trying to battle for Zion. Williamson RJ Barrett door rant J Mirant. It just it's not happening. So that once again, the bulls will find a nice pick somewhere six seven eight, but it won't be one of the top three guys in the draft. And then again, that's unfortunate. But when you look at the core. Okay. The future of the bulls the future the bulls really is Wendell Carter junior Lauri marketing as well. As channel Hutchinson. That's really the core of the team. There's there's Archie canola. There's Antonio blank knee jelly talented on the team like Raleigh all kins- in Brandon Sampson. But when you're talking about the future and trying to figure out what the future is going to be the next four in three or four years. You're hoping that Carter junior and market in Hutchinson. Can be something for you. If you are the bulls, but because the lineup I just gave you a bottle Puerto junior you're trying to celebrate. What auto porter is now in thinking that well, wait from wall appeal, he'll really be able to flourish. We don't know that I'll tell you something else on it either. But I think that the deal is sound, but I just once again just trying to determine the direction of the ball club. That's the thing. I'm looking for just I. You have Chris done there. Zach LeVine, there's Markkanen. But then what's the what's the next thing? What are you going to be in three years? And by the way, who's going to coach him something else. I'm also concerned about as well. By the way, this coming from Adrian Watson row ski from ESPN dot com. After considering the possibility of shutting down all star center. Anthony Davis the pelicans plan to allow Davis back into the lineup for the rest of the regular season through sources despite pelicans concerns about its prize asset possibly getting injured and losing value in the trade market league office had concerns about Pels forcing a healthy star to sit out the rest of the season. Still the pelicans decided they wanted him back on the floor which Davis wanted to. I e. The NBA players association. As we turn to Chris black, my partner on our for love, the pod NBA podcasts. We do every month. Barbara ESPN one thousand staff, and he joins me here in our trade special here on ESPN one thousand in the espionage pillow, Chris Johnson last night. I was listening to you dissect the auto quarter trade for the Chicago Bulls. And I thought you did fantastic job because the thing that needs to be pointed out with everything going on with the ball is now was listening about twenty minutes ago to to what you're saying. Is it starts from the top people can be mad at John Paxson, gar Forman and the direction of the franchise. But really why have we not heard from Michael Reinsdorf? He's the one that's running all of this. It's his team. It's not Jerry's responsibility anymore. He's the one at the head. And for some reason we've never heard from him. No one has gone in an interview with him. And a lot of it points directly back to the top two. Why this bowls franchises where it is? And I thought last night you paint a great picture to what's going on with this franchise. Always trying to say is is that if if my father gives me fall flaw tawny of team says okay, you run the team while I focus on the White Sox when I would do is. Okay. So if I've got the keys to the car, Kristen I'm going to do what I think is best which means a fresh set of eyes for the organization. I don't have to be loyal like my father. I I can have John packages still around as an ambassador or be have a say in your dissertation. But I had to ask someone that has an ultimate say the still wants to be a pseudo. Really a pseudo guy that just goes around from gym to gym and be like a super scout. He could do that too. But then they can have the titles, but I need to have a fresh set of eyes. And if I'm Michael I do exactly rocky Wirtz did his father passes away. He does something totally different different is not bad. The same is got to gives you the same direction. The last twenty one years. Yeah. And I think bulls fans are tired of it. And I I don't really understand why the met the media today because nothing they said made it a whole lot of sense like from everything from gar seeing that the bulls fan base just wants instinct gratification like where did that come from? I mean, all all those fans are doing and all you, and I are doing is reacting to what they're doing. Right. Like, it's not a saying, we want instant gratification. Many of us wanted Ables a tinkle last year this year, we understand how to build a championship team, especially when you go out and admit that free agents don't want to sign here. Okay. So what instant gratification? We're ready for a full one hair down and tank session from the Chicago Bulls. But for some reason last year at the you know, you get off to a three and twenty start. And then you go on a December where you're winning eleven games after you trade Jimmy Butler to tell us that you have all this cap space, and that you're going to rebuild this thing from the bottom up, and then you come back with a hall of auto porter in Zach LeVine is your free agents that you've used cap space for and you missed out on Dante because you want to many games last year. And there's a possibility you might lose out on time Williamson as well this year, so instant gratification. What what in the world? What's he talking about today? You know, my relationship with gar Forman right and gar Forman and his family. Also knows that what I'm saying. Here is not personal. It's all it's all business. So you're aware of a too. So, but I will tell you, and I will tell gar is completely arrogant and completely disconnected is easy for him to say that from the tenth tee box or whatever golf course that he attends in living the good life. But that's that is as I as I tweeted is totally embarrassments embarrassing statement. And I really think he should think before he speaks to say that people want instant gratification. Hell look how many years of ineptitude at the bulls have gone through Instagram vacation. No, it's not about one years about all these users about three rebuilds. So I just thought that that was a very unfortunate arrogant statement. And if that's how the bulls feel than people United States, you have to understand like if that's a perception that's on the west side about your fan base wanting Instagram vacation that says a lot for what's going on with the organization and the perception of it. Okay. And then so now that we're dissecting the nonsense. We heard from the bulls for an office today. So then you got. John and taxing arguing the amount of rebuilds that he's had a chance to be a part of. What what took place today between their press conference and the radio hit in town that John Paxson had earlier today saying that who's was the interrogation interview. Listen, what nobody this herpes that your franchise even succeeding in the NBA. We're watching teams that don't traditionally win do everything they can humanly possible to try and get players to win the clippers. Knicks teams that have historically been horrific in the league, they are doing things to get a meeting with free agents to clear the decks for cap space to make the right move. I get it not all that works out. I understand there for the bulls are the arguing with people about the amount of times they get to rebuild this franchise. Is just incredible to me that people continue to follow in. And we pay like foreign just believe what they tell you. Because it's not true. What they're doing is is a gigantic con job on the Chicago Bulls fan because you know, what they do is they call you own thing. And then they completely changed what they're doing to come back at it. Right. You're like you and I sat at the advocate for multiple dress. And they told us we're planning for the future. We're going to have cap space. Nobody else in the league will have cap space. You know, we're smarter than everyone else in the league. We know that there is going to be in Joe Smith and teams are gonna spend too much. And we're going to be the only ones at the end of the day was tax base that go out and signing free agents. What happened to cap space? What happened to that? Right. Where was like why why do bulls fans kitschy to believe what they're saying? Because what they're saying is not match up with their actions. It's frustrating as hell because then they come out, and they're chesty about it. It's like, listen, it's not an interrogation it. We're giving you the facts on your actions. You can be upset at the end results because we all are. But it's just an embarrassment that people still believe in what they say. Because the end results do not match what they say Chris black from our staff here DSP in one thousand and part of the for the love the pod podcast that Chris and I do on the NBA every month. He's with me Jonathan hood on ESPN one thousand the ESPN app. So who won the day as far as the trade deadline's concern? I have a team written down, which which team do you? Choose all choose the Toronto. Raptors because I think Marcus soul are really takes them to a bubble that we already knew that they were probably going to be one of the best teams at the end of the day eastern, topics. But I really think Mark. Solna center for the raptors takes them to a whole 'nother level, and it also puts them in a spot where now they have something to show Kawai at the end of the day this summer that listen we are building around you kinda lowering the seer consoles here. This team is the best team in the Eastern Conference. You we could probably get to the finals. And you know, what would that could soul against the warriors might be mismatch? Because who knows how that plays with DeMarcus cousins, and and how that works. So I really like what Toronto really like what? The Sixers have done that starting five of Simmons Rettig along with Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and Embiid is solid and also being able to ship the number one pick Marquel..

"Well, going to stay still needs for sure purposes, you know, even though you know, this. This was something that the warriors wanted back when cousins of was out. Now, obviously knew he was he was coming back anytime soon, so cousins didn't have you know, that doesn't he doesn't play a factor into that. But no, Robin. You know, go to stay at the top of his list, if he's if he's able to choose as destiny, and you know, member. Yes ties to Bob Myers in the he was at the same agency Wasserman, which is where Bob was before he left Steve Kerr's Raphael. You know? Via SaaS rebel. There. And so there's a lot. There's a lot of ties there. I know Robin Lopez from our ties, you know, you know, we both from Fresno, California. So that's the top of his list, and he wants to win, you know? It's funny like 'cause Robin is the guy like going back even to that going back to the time where the team almost bulls almost rebelled against. Oh. What you're talking about? Well, they got fine arresting him last year. No, I was no I was talking about just the the rebellion. They were her bail coast Boylan practice. Yeah. And so it was actually, you know, Zach LeVine, he was kind of running things and and Robin Lopez kinda convinced everybody. Hey, look, less less at least show up. You know? I don't think it'd be a good idea. If we just don't go, let's just show up and he convinced everybody do that. But you know, I was told like, you know, you know, boiling, you know, having guys do one suicides army style pushups. But I you know, everybody was just pissed about it. Right. But I heard Robin was like because you know, he went and played at the time. He was like shit, man. I need this work. I'm gonna say, you know. So it was funny. How you know he being the the the guy that held everything together. But he was he wants to he wants to play. He wants to win. He felt like he feels like he's at the he still in the promise career. And you know, he felt like he feels like he's done all that was asked of him, you know, in that situation as as as being a young veterans on that team. And so no, that's that's just the way it is right now. But Chicago, you know, they wanna they wanna try to see if they can get a trade. That's the smart thing to do that. You know, I think a lot of people looked at Phoenix saw Phoenix buying out Tyson Chandler is that well, what was your? We saw them by outside sales early. What was your thought? Fine. I mean, they had Rashawn homes already. They traded for him in the summer. They wanted him to play Chandler's making fifteen million. He didn't have any trae valve the only way he had trade value is if they were willing to trade him as an expiring. Contract and take on more bad money, but they've been like steadfast that. They don't wanna do that. I don't know why. Because they don't have any cap space this summer. But so it made perfect sense to me that they bought about this uproar like, oh, they should awaited entreated unlike making fifteen million dollars a year like he's not going to have Trumka rotten ro Robin Lopez around there as well. Yeah. Well, and that's why I think it's pretty now. The bulls may be more willing to take on salary that goes for longer, and then maybe they could get an asset. And he's an expiring contract. They also Jabari Parker who could perform that functions. While the Lopez is probably actually more useful to a potential contender. But yeah, if you're not willing to take on money passed this season and potentially get more of an asset than just Robin Lopez, obviously or by doing that than I it's there's you're not gonna find a deal, you you're not gonna trade Robin Lopez and get back another expiring contract and not have to take many. There just aren't enough of those contracts around got you that makes sense that makes us. That's that's that's why. That's why you like you get paid the big bus. Explain this stuff. You know? I'm not an expert on CBA, solid tapping all those things..

"We'll get like it all starting out or in the conversation as a way of saying, hey, man, you doing well. But when when when it really counts, you're gonna be out of the mix, but we're gonna give it to you. Now, you little hype now January while it's still coup jokers ain't that kind of do he'll be in the conversation all the way through Marcus the nuggets number one in the west and got this young team. How do you see them fairing in the scratch? You see them being a top five in Kaneko deep in the playoffs contender? I think because they have they have that home Ray is going to be tough to win their. Well, let's take that back. It was tested when they whenever before when I we saw it wasn't that tough like doors went into, but theoretically like the whole mile high, and they got tough atmosphere play in is a problem. I do think because they play defense there'll be a tough out. But also think 'cause they still need another monster like they'll probably get one round winning second. Right, right. If they if they if they get a first round playoff way, it'd be like Goodyear salute Mike Malone, and then I gotta go out and get another star. Maybe you Bob Murray comes alive, but they still need another piece. Bill fans getting old and they're they're they're a good team. Right there. They're not ready to take down a G yet. So I don't know they might they might struggle against Oklahoma cities, Houston as the warriors. But they're they're good enough to win a playoff series. I think. Yeah. Fun stuff tonight, the Pepsi center. Denver nugget history like they've gotten to the Western Conference finals they had their run with Carmelo nine. They got there was Alex. I go back to isel analysis English and eighty five, but it's did not decorate. They've never made an NBA finals, and though the youngest team in the NBA interesting. Do you like on that roster? You like Jamal Murray. You like you like Paul Millsap? You like Gary Harris we like. Yeah. I definitely like Gary Harris Jamal Murray is really good Millsap is one of those guys you just he's a he's a reliable every game. They were they were definitely something to behold when they had Yokich so. So now, they're they're big, man. Isn't that great? But they've got some players. They don't have fat lever anymore. Nice. They they they are very well rounded team and their coach really well so any teams like that are a little bit scary. My right remembering there was some friction with you. Mark jackson. Mike malone. You are correct. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What was that? What was the story there? So, you know, just from like Scotto remember with Dr Jackson, I got the job. The Rover was that Zoleka wanted to hire him as co coaches with Malone and Mark Jackson. He was like, nah. Along became the head of the system. Mark actually saying it wasn't the case. But there was a there was not that Joe Laker forced him to take Mike Malone. And then once Mike willow gets on. It was all the conversation about who's really coaching the team member. Mark Jackson will let Malone run the time out drawn to place. The warriors look good. They just the motivational coach like really doing coaches and that kind of got under bar Jackson, skids. So richly below is like, yeah, I'm out. You know, you got enough clout to get another job. But it was never it. Always started on the on the wrong foot. Just because. Yeah. I don't think I think I think it was really close between Malone and Mark Jackson and Joe liquor made a call at the end the market, actor, Brian. I definitely heard that they wanted to be co cokes. I how wild stuff all right about the nuggets. This talk about the Golden State Warriors with Marcus Thompson of the athletic quarriers tonight at six o'clock warriors, obviously still need more in the. The word was from some of your colleagues that Robin. Lopez of the bulls is in Bob Myers wishlist. But there is a problem with with a buyout with the bulls. Do you know anything about this? What's your opinion of this possible move? Yeah. They've been had an eye on Lopez. I mean, you can look at any any big man in the league. Just go down the list of free agents that those would be correct. So you see who they would want right, Robin. Lopez is probably going to base centers. Out there who is on a bad team. But the bulls, you know, bulls just let them walk. Do you lose water by out for all the money? Right. And the the team wants to do a buy out with a big discount. But why would Robin Lopez give back with me? So this is the situation you see a lot of players anywhere. It's like how how much how much do I want my freedom and the warriors will need a center. I think when they seem cousins is going to determine like how badly they need center. So if if 'cause it's good that you kinda gotta get the best center out there if not maybe you can afford to go get somebody's not as new as Robin Lopez. Maybe there's another two year underneath that. But they definitely would love to have Robin Lopez. If you got a team, he he's probably one of the best OG centers out there behind like Tyson Chandler. Heading realize the history. When Kerr was the GM in Phoenix. He drafted him first round. At Stanford Robin Lopez in AAC clo a little bit of history there. So we'll find out. What's that? On the Lopez trying to get one. We'll see how that one progresses. Hey tonight. The warriors go in fresh off of the game where Durant told curry. No, no, you go. Yeah. That was really cool for those of us, you know, ever since as we've talked about it ever since training camp what's happening with Katie. Now, we're going to read into it that is so happy that he's willing to give up shots to Steph curry, right? So so that's our latest Katie stay in now, Marcus. How's that? Steph had a good day. We were watching it live. We're all like what show? Yeah. And we're vibrant with the most is like, yeah. He definitely fair. Right. That's I look I've always felt the answer. Anyway, is like no matter what happens at the end of the season. The warriors clearly the transition out of the previous mindset, they had like this whole Hamptons thing. They're still really good. Yeah. But they're not the like you say separation from the rest of the league isn't there anymore through? So they can't afford to just like chill with Jacob Evans. If they really couldn't do it this year, but they they really got to go get some help. Right. Do they really got to kind of figure out? How to read tool this? And for me. It's always like all right. Katie. Other. And we we saw a bit of that play out in in the last game. We're Katie not only the he gives Steph the ball back, but he's talking crazy. To the Dallas bitch. Why does it right? He likes. If you noticed it gives the ball back to carry. Yeah. Thirty he turns around and starts talking trash Dow's bench. So he's like, I'm not gonna make you nice. Yeah. Right. That that's that was that type of chemistry. I think that's if Durant staying, right? That's one of bay. I think that'd be a major reason that he said I wanna I wanna ride this out with curry because I need a Costa find a better when the him Marcus Thompson with us Zuma. Guests lamarcus you mentioned chemistry, and yeah, then they're looking for they're looking better lately. And one of the pieces that chemistry puzzle. Obviously a big piece Draymond green. I thought he looked pretty good in Dallas to starting to look more. Draymond green light to me lately. Maybe he's feeling better overall. But we saw you out of practice the other day, Marcus. I know you're there every day. But what is it like these days? The vibe the chemistry like you're seeing in practice. I mean sounds like a translated on the court the other night. But overall, you know, here we are maybe a month. More a month couple months after the incident in quotes. I mean has have things improved chemistry wise, vibe wise. Hear about the same. Right. They they they had this tough. Spelled and they kind kinda got of it. You could see a working on it. You could see them like actively like fighting, and you know, doing the work that it takes the Rick as you can see the double tap is back. You can see them having conversations. Like there was a grind. It was like, hey, let's let's let's roll our sleeves up and make this thing work. And I I still think there's something beneath the surface. But you know, they're doing what they do. They're doing what they have to do to keep going in. I really feel like it's gonna take another moment for them to kind of really bury it interested in maybe in the playoffs. Right. Maybe it's something where it's like, I can we kinda gotta get through this. And they haven't really had that forced on them yet. But he call you definitely know. Hey before we let you go. Just the word on harden Fifty-seven last night. It's crazy now he's going for his back to back MVP's. We always talk about how warriors fans get disgusted. All he does is bate whistles and this. And that are you. What point should we just lay down our arms and say this dude is is crazy right now in terms of scoring and you gotta respect it and kind of framing his historical Ron here. He's he's closing in on wilt chamberlain's record. I think for thirty plus point games, consecutively, which you thoughts, Marcus. I self James harden is incredible. And he's been incredible for a long time. Right. I don't care how many feet. Does he takes that step back is like? Yeah. It's it's it's crazy. How money he's made that he's turned that into a goal to move like he's turned it into his shot. Right. Which is like remarkable when you really sit back and think about it. It's not like fade away, George did fifteen feet for the basket or sky. Like, he does this little little waltz of tap into shot that he does every single time away. He shoots it you expect it to go in that's pretty insane. He's one of the is clearly one of the most gifted office. If players we've ever seen just from a senior skills standpoint with that said. You know, he was one for seventeen the other night for three which it just underscores. How there's levels to this like buying you notice. Right. Like players, man. There's a ceiling that they have to break through and until he figures out a countered in his game. I'm still always. Champion because you you go one for seventeen from three. That's just shows. You just not willing to do anything else. Right. Keep doing the same thing. Assist. Numbers are pretty good this year. They are. He's feeding cappella. Yeah. To is all around. That they know how you just know how to guard. Right. It's like when it's like, it's like, Katie really like you got a game plan, and you know, how to execute. Right. A lot of those shots. But it lowers the bar percentages fees can seem to the seas. Like we seen K D have to literally just to come off the ball and play a different way. Yeah. Braswell championship champion, and everybody's playing weakness. You have to have a counter James harden counter is to keep doing it. Right. Figure that out. Yeah. Like, and maybe maybe he will. Maybe this is the year. He didn't do it last year. They went over twenty seven from three he stills take a step back. And like it's just those are beautiful shots. Look great. But you just gotta wonder when it comes to championship basketball. Will he do what it takes? And that's the only knock I more. So. Yeah. And by the way, Houston making that run saying they want the one seed Clint Capella, the news is out four to six weeks. And that's a tough tough. Yeah. Well, man, it's gonna be fun tonight the Pepsi center..

"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.

"Is there a divide like some people have thrown out that there's a divide between these younger guys in the Celtics locker room and some of the more established vets and maybe a champ kyri. That's interesting part. But maybe it's nothing, and it absolutely could be and you're right. He did definitely try, and I think walk it back a little bit just him being upset in the moment of losing that game. He took back. There's definitely a divide in the media because they because he's throwing it out there. Is there a divide knocker? There's we definitely do not know there, and they could definitely come out better on the other side. It was like a week ago. We were saying, yeah, they felt in their way. Yeah. It's been a weird roller coaster season here for the Celtics so far all right next one try our next headline is from NBA dot com. And it's based on a report from Yahoos, Chris Hades. It reads. The bulls are preventing Robin Lopez buyout as he tries to join the warriors. I don't think. So I mean, why shouldn't the bulls, at least explorer the idea of trying to trade them? I mean, you have the trade deadline February seventh, and then if you can't move Robin Lopez, and you can't get a second round pick or whatever you want coming back some sort of future asset. Well, then you till March first to come to that biodegr-. So what's the real rush? I don't think there's I like also the bulls are cheap. We know that water is wet. I mean, this is not surprising. This makes sense to me you try and find a suitor. He may he wants to go to play for the warriors. Why wouldn't you want to go play for the warriors instead of the bulls? But try and get something for him. And then and then if you can't then you just you just work on the bio, then I don't see the issue here. Isn't that tampering already that we know, Robin? Lopez wants to go to another team, and he's already mentioned the Golden State Warriors in a central. I think Robin. Lopez knows very well that I'm not going to be ending my season with Chicago Bulls. He's supposed to be on the leadership. No, that's true. We were hearing reports that he got there was a chippy practice here today in Chicago. And he had to have a little time out Boylan said you got to take a time out ten minutes. I'm out because you're going crazy. He's. He's frozen. Very little miniature. He's a veteran. And he said I'm going on in the problem of my career right now. I want to go to a team that's trying to win a championship. The Bouza clearly not doing that. He's been pretty solid professional in Chicago. And now he's like, maybe just let me go. Now, I can go on with the war. But as we know the Bolshoi they can explore it. But then you know, what shown some classes, I can't go go. Go song with whoever you want because he's got no future in Chicago. After the trade deadline weakened. Them not freeing Robin Lopez I would love to see him in the postseason again because he is a contributor he contributed well in Portland when he got a little bit of time in Phoenix back in the conference finals long longtime ago, even in Chicago, and there were a playoff team, and there are other suitors, then Golden State Warriors. They don't need the rich to get richer and tuition Houston Rockets, just lost their starting center and Clint Capella for four to six weeks. But I don't really see a trade match in this situation rubber Lopez makes a lot of bucks tonight, Brandon Knight and a pick. Why would this? The bulls do that for the draft for the past got to be a good pick. Just for the pig. Think they would take anything at this point. So, but you're right. I mean, it could be good timing for the bulls front office. If the rockets are like we need a center here because we don't have a whole lot of those on the roster with this Capella news, all right time for one more here.

"Golden State couldn't provide that maybe Cleveland? That's a good question. Know for myself. Took a different approach. Like, I said. I was on. Awesome. Being positive. Really? Back on the path. Is on now. It's unfortunate because he's a guy. I liked. He's a guy you really wanted to do. Well, Jerry, West went and found we kind of went really this guy to UNLV but warriors the back end of drafts. I mean, if you look at the Jordan bell, you know, it's buying draft pick from the Chicago Bulls. And then the how how well they've they did with Patrick McCaw feeling like they found some good talent from from UNLV. They're you know, it's just an odd thing you were hoping that these young bench guys who had been here like children, bell and McCaw. We're going to be that NextWave the next. Igwe dollar the next the next Shaun Livingston at some point. You're going to have to fill out roster spots for those guys right at some point. You're going to have to say these guys are getting too old. They just can't help us the way they used to help us four one five hundred Mecom mentally weak and couldn't cut it with the dubs anymore. Maybe if somebody's if somebody's died you like that and telling you this is not what's best for your career. I can't imagine that burying yourself in Cleveland on an eight win team right now is gonna help your your next offseason contract. Nine hundred sixty s McCall wants to be a big fish in a small pond. The problem is he's not a big fish. He's joined the team where he's not even a top five player on the Cavs right now. I don't know a top five player on the cows. Would even mean, but Collins Sexton, right? They've got some decent players. There are decent young group of players. That's obviously trying to rebound yet again from the departure. Lebron James five one zero Jason says warriors regaining their momentum and clay's getting going is all they needed. That's part of it closed when they have a huge responsibility tomorrow night trying to stop a James harden and the Houston Rockets when they get to town hardness been on an absolute tear and another one checks in here. Ninety five says if McCain come back to Golden State, he would've made a lot more money next off season. It's kind of what I feel like you couldn't have sucked it up for one more year. It's been half a year a year and a half in Cleveland can spend another year in the bay area. You wouldn't rather done that as far as what this means for the warriors in the roster spot. Bob Myers made it pretty clear to reporters on Monday that ultimately what this means is that they're going to have to use this final roster spot for a center position that this has been discussed. I kind of said last week pay attention to the Suns game Jamal Crawford because Jamal Crawford would have been an interesting guard to guard to add to the roster as a as a buyout option. Maybe from the Phoenix Suns late in the season. It can be a good scoring force off the bench gives you a little bit more height obviously than Quinn cooked us, but. By the way. You're terrible game did not score in that game the other night and like eighteen or twenty minutes against the dubs. But Bob Myers made it pretty clear that they're looking to add somebody at the center position because he said simply DeMarcus cousins will not be enough. And I agree you need to have a guy who's a veteran who you want to. And again, we mentioned this before kind of a bio guy the name that keeps getting floated around Robin Lopez man, that's the guy, Robin. Lopez would be a sideshow. Bob, looking dude in the paint would be the perfect guy to have for the warriors a guy who can offense rebound. He's a footer familiar with the bay area, of course, grew up here, and then went to Stanford. And and it's so funny. He was supposed to be the lesser of the two Lopez brothers. He's the the not as sexy option. He's not the big score. But he's had a very solid NBA career. All this, of course, on the heels of brook Lopez's twin brother yesterday becomes the brook. Lopez yesterday for the Milwaukee Bucks knocked down seven three-pointers becomes the first Senator in the history of the NBA to knock down seven three pointers in back. Toback dame's. But that incredible note there, but the way they senators are the way the Bob Myers is phrasing. It as is you want a guy sort of let's say scrappy, but you want sort of a bruiser and enforcer a guy in the pain who can who can give the other team problems or who can just be like, your your your misfit, right? Get out there. And and kind of you're doing maybe you need somebody to go in there and hacked, Andre Jordan down the stretch, you need somebody to to hack Rudy Gobert. That's how you make it happen, dude. So that would be the perfect option for the warriors a Robin Lopez edition so Bob Myers says you're waiting until probably late January to get on one of those buyouts or something like that. So hey, keep those feet moving. Stay inbounds bleed that clock. And and we're almost back at full strength. Paulie MAC back today bondage a- laflin back in then will being tomorrow. So I'm going to stay sitting right here. We got more coming up the Kamiar morning show coming up right after this on the sports leader..
