I first year of doing this randomly. I got the old switcheroo That if off moved off of trae young in texas to a north carolina louisville but yeah Gava sad thing for me. He's been too stable. You know as a kid. He was a cazes carolina and man. It's i know we talked about this earlier. But there are a lotta guys did in the next probably five six seven years are are going to be hanging up and it's going to be really weird. Yeah there are yet onto it but what. We won't a second here. There aren't a ton of candidates in the family but I like where does where does where right for you. Among the elite coaches in college basketball is he. Top five is top ten. you know.

I think he's got to be one of the top six or seven coaches that. We've had college basketball. Yeah he was always very fair to me even when you criticize him Extremely fair we had a couple of mishaps. All this honestly wasn't either one of our faults. i. I'm trying to remember all the specifics. But it was basically when all this stuff came out about the academic scandal. They're a bunch of carolina players that Sent a letter to me. I believe is. Pin bunch of players sent a letter to me. Email me a letter and roy for some reason. Didn't think.

And I I send along too. I think it was maybe the desk or whatnot and and then it was kind of out of my hands. So I remember it wouldn't let me into practice birth.

North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach Roy Williams retires

"North Carolina coach Roy Williams announced his retirement after 18 seasons coaching the Tar Heels. I feel very fortunate that we've had him for so long, it's such a high level. One of the great coaches in the game of basketball more reaction to the retirement of UNC legend Roy Williams with over 900 wins and three national championships to his name. When asked about why he chose to retire now, Williams said, quote every time somebody asked me how long I was going to go. I'd always say as long as my health allows me to do it, But deep down inside, I knew the only thing that would speed that up. Was if I did not feel that I was any longer the right man for the job. I no longer feel that I'm the right man for the job. Williams went unbeaten in March Madness first round matchups. 29 You know until this year, the first round loss to Wisconsin breaking the streak. Sixers Garden national champion with UNC Danny Greene talked on Keyshawn J. Will and Zubin about his former coach, and what made him so legendary. He's been doing a strong as I've been alive and he's been a legend since then, since before probably I was born and he's a legendary stuff before me and during my time there and after He's one. You know a number of championships, and that's not even that doesn't speak on his success to me what he's done off the court and what he's pledged that school in other schools, eyes helped out in the community there, North Carolina and you know not just there, but many places in the world. So to me, that just speaks legendary. You know, outside the court just many ways you could be, um You know, a legend is many ways. You can be a hero. As many ways you could be a champion and world wins is the definition of all those. Those things even said the in before I was born. ESPN College basketball analyst Jay Billa spoke on Spain and Fitz about who could be a successor to Williams at UNC. I think it'll have to be somebody within the Carolina family. So the first thing you think of his Hubert Davis, who played there for Dean Smith, that has been a system under Roy Williams, the last 89 years. Some like that, and Um, you know, the only the only thing that people would bring up with Hubert is he has not yet been a head coach, but he's played a million years. The MBA there, you know, Roy Williams had never been a head coach when he took over Kansas, so I'm not all hung up on this head Coach thing. I think it's great. I'd rather I'd rather have Ah, someone with head coaching experience that not, But when you got somebody's got his Hubert, I wouldn't hesitate to make that higher. But also that the other one that I think Will be right in the mix of those West Miller, the head coach of UNC Greensboro, He played for Roy Williams on the 05 National championship team as backup guard and he's been an outstanding music, really young head coach. UNC Greensboro, and he's done really well there, but for the last couple of tournaments that were held, and he had a really good team this year with Isaiah Miller is his best player, making the double A. So he's He's another really good option

It’s the same old story for North Carolina basketball in loss to the Wolfpack

"On sunday. We spent several minutes discussing a disappointing blueblood with the hall of fame coach kentucky led by john calipari today. We'll spend another few minutes on another disappointing blueblood with another hall of fame coach this time it's north carolina and roy williams the tar heels fell at nc state on tuesday. Seventy nine seventy six so now. Five and three. The other losses are texas in iowa best win over stanford ladder you and i both had north carolina projected as the third best team in the acc in the preseason. Are we still confident. Unc is a top three in the acc. No did i really have them third. I looked double checks man. it's not ideal right now. we both had it. We both had it. Virginia duke north carolina in that order. Well i didn't have carrots. So here's where. I differed in the preseason with some of the projections yours and and others. I did not have carolina ranked in the top twenty five portion of my one two three fifty seven. I i put carolina twenty eight. And i remember before like settling on an ultimate order like my first initial like. Let me throw everything at the wall. I think i'd carolina like thirty six or thirty seven and the reason was they were so poor last year. I mean historically bad. It was one of the five or six worst seasons in school history. Statistically that i was just. I wasn't totally sold on them. Going from fourteen and nineteen a season ago to being if your top. Three team in the acc You know that's probably a four seat at worst. And i wasn't all in on him there. I thought okay. Maybe they can get along the lines of a five or six seed and that was really what wound me wind up with me. Booting them up a little bit. But at this point you know. I watched the majority of that. Nc state game. I would argue. It wasn't even a three point game. Nc state truly beat them by six or seven points now five and three losses the losses all respectable so. It's an interesting situation with unc. Here lost texas in a really really good game championship. Which was obviously nashville. Then they lose at iowa but it wasn't that competitive ninety three eighty. Now they take the road loss against nc state. The win against kentucky and cbs sports classic has almost no value. The win over stanford is solid but otherwise charleston. Unlv north carolina central their next game at georgia tech a week from one. We're talking here. On december thirtieth so i think there is still the chance and with all due respect as always to leaky black here. And he's actually. I think he's. He's been good in spots but they're not as good as they should be. I still really love. The frontline is still think. This could be one of the courts in america but it should be noted fourteen thousand nine hundred last season. Now it's five three. And i'm not gonna guarantee you that this team is heading to the instability tournament and in the preseason. Unc got by on its jersey name. I don't know i. I was always a little hesitant there and some of that has come to the surface. This is clearly clearly not a top twenty five team right now. In north carolina as you mentioned the go fourteen and nineteen last season and the reason that i had them in the preseason top twenty five and one thought that they would have a really nice bounceback season because they in elite recruiting class featuring three five star freshman. The way they're supposed to go from fourteen and nineteen to really good is that three five-star freshmen are great. And they're all fine. I guess but none of them are playing like freshman of the year candidates like against nc state day. Ron sharpe had six points. Fourteen minutes walker kessler had three points and twelve minutes. Caleb love had eleven point four assists two turnovers in twenty eight minutes. Like if you're five star freshman aren't gonna perform like five star freshman consistently well. Then you're not going to go from from bad to to really good. You can go from bad to good from bad to respectable from bad to an ncaa tournament team. But you're not going to be elite unless you five star freshman perform at an elite level. They are not doing that right now.

UNC's Lost Season

"Jeff Bordello. I'm a little shook. North Carolina finished the regular season. They lose to do because that's fine we're used to that but they're the lowest seed in the ACC tournament North Carolina. So some how you would view this season for the tar heels. I mean they're arguably the most disappointing team in the country. Jeff Portillo is a college basketball insider for ESPN. And I know we have to take some other factors into account with injuries. And Karl Anthony and things like that but you know this was a preseason top ten team that like you said is going to be the bottom seed in the ACC tournament in the ACC is not goodness here. It's a it's a pretty down league you know. There are Miami. Nbc in Wake Forest Pittsburgh. None of those teams are very good and Carolina is at the bottom of all that and to me. That's shocking you know. This is one of the best of all time blueblood like I said a top ten preseason team and four months later five later. They're the worst team in the ACC. It's one of the bigger stories in college football this season and I think you could really make the case that there are the biggest disappointment in college hoops so let's go back to October. Preseason rankings come out North Carolina's in the top ten. They're sitting at number nine refresh everybody in what the real expectations were coming into this season for this team. I mean they a lot of guys from last year but they did bring in what people expected was an impact recruiting class was led by Karl Anthony Centerpiece of Roy Williams retooling effort. It's chole Anthony. Going the top freshman in the country making his debut tonight from of a raucous crowd here that the dome he was expected by pretty much everyone to be the most productive freshman in the country. That's how he wasn't high school that's where he was on the scene. He was a guy that was going to put up big points. He was gonNA put a big assist numbers. He's going to rebound and he was going to win games. That's just that's just what he was at the high school level and people expected him to to be that same player Carolina and it. Kinda set up perfectly for him because he was able to come in and this was a team that didn't have any real goto guys coming back. So they said hey collapsed. And you're getting the ball from day one and you're gonNA lead us and you know it kind of looked good. You know in the first game of the season. He was terrific. He had thirty four points. Eleven rebounds five assists debut for coal. Anthony lost a lot of stars to the NBA. After last season with the go one superstore Chambal. Whom the feeling was that? You know this team is going to be okay. Even despite the losses and along with him they brought into Grad transfer. Is that you know. We're probably two of the five or seven best. Grad transfer is in the country was Christian Keeling from Charleston southern just NPR's from William and Mary and and that added some experience at its veteran leadership and combined with a couple of other guys are Mondo Baker was a five star recruit garrison brooks was a two year starter download so i. I just think that people thought you combine the newcomers with the guys returning and even though there weren't any stars coming back from last year's team there was enough here to to compete for an ACC title and Roy Williams has done this before where his team is is written off a little bit in the preseason and under rank behind teams like Duke and he finds a way to win and that's just what he does and and I think people expected him to do it again with the guys coming in and coming back well so now you've got a team that has preseason expectations they get into. The season was the first time this season there was the first real sign of concern that the season might not go the way some had hoped. I think it was a couple of things I think one was even when they were winning the game. They won their first five games of the season. But even some of those the Notre Dame win the Alabama win. There were some signs of. Is this team going to be as good as we thought were Williams? I you get the sense. He hasn't loved all aspects of his teams. Play here today. You know he has. He has not name barely beat. Notre Dame eleven point margin was it. It wasn't addictive. How close the season opener was against Notre Dame so I think there was. Okay let's give it time. Let's let Cole Anthony. And the other freshman get acclimated and this team will figure it out but they lose by twenty five at home 'til Ohio state to start December. You know then they lose that. Virginia you know losing effort gene is not not a usually a big concern. This is not a vintage Virginia team and I think most people realize that at that time and then they lose to Wofford. They ended up finishing below five hundred in the southern conference. Terriers come to Chapel Hill and knock off a top twenty five North Carolina squad. And that's when the you know the eyebrow start raising what's going on with his team are they poised to be this massive disappointment and obviously once call. Anthony gets hurt. The wheels fall off from their breaking news. Call Anthony out four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus. Well at that point you know maybe things are a little bit concerning. But they're going to get two. Acc conference play. You said it the ACC not the best conference in the world so they get to the ACC schedule. How's that go form? You look at their schedule and you said okay they can. They can weather the storm three straight home games in. Acc play against Georgia Tech Pit Clemson and they had games against Pittsburgh Virginia Tech Miami even a bad UNC team or even a a mediocre UNC. Team could go six in Owen. Those games it was kind of the the bottom half of the league and they went one and five losing the first five games of that stretch. Seventy nine seventy seven double-overtime Virginia tech knocking off North Carolina. I think that was almost getting the end. When you look back the schedule what would be the one moment that sort of pushed everything over to the point in return honestly I think it was after Columbia comes back a long ways away. Eleven Games without call Anthony but he will play tonight. Yeah the five hundred. Unc team suddenly. Jay has a lot of juice and he'd be Miami. Nc State then call and he comes back for a home game in Boston College and you know. They weren't very good at the time but they tended ten three and six in the ACC and you know the the narrative was kind of okay. If Cole Anthony Comes back the committee will look at them and say you know with call. Anthony this is an NCAA tournament team. He's going to be on the roster in the NCAA tournament they're going to factor that in so I think people started wondering can. Unc string together. Some wins and make a late run and in his first game back. You lose at home to Boston. College straight three other time. He's spoiled return. I think that was the sign that it's not going to happen so that's not. Obviously the only epic moment we all continue to think about from the season tickets back to the first game between North Carolina and Duke. The Duke Game was a game that that could have turned things around at least changed the narrative about Carolina and to lose in that fashion. Another late blown lead. Losing to your biggest rival do comes back not to be Carolina to me. That was that was a really low mon it just because it it could have been really a season changing moment for Carolina and the way it happened it just it kind of sent them even further down into the season

Shortest NBA Career, Ever

"Royce. It's been exactly ten years this Saturday since James Names on curry who I should note is not related to Steph curry made his NBA debut. I found this story fascinating. Because here's a guy who has seemingly on on the cusp of achieving all of his dreams. And then poof it's over. He's out of the League. How did you go about finding him? It was a really long on kind of winding path to it and it was somewhat of a passion project. Part of me was I was kind of scared. That's a story outside my comfort zone a little a bit to just completely cold call somebody and track them down and find out because you know on the other side of it. You're going to see like the story is three point nine seconds right and then it's open ended after that. Where's he at? What's he doing is the jailing does he oversees? He'd still trying to play basketball. I have no idea you you can put these stories in your mind. I kinda WanNa know about that. And then they kind of just sort of get lost in the shuffle and you keep thinking about it and you keep wondering about it. And that's what level with me is that finally it was like you know what I'm going to find out about this and I got kind of approval to pursue this story and at that time it was like okay. We don't know where he's at. You know he could be still playing professional basketball somewhere in like Moscow or Turkey. You're the Israel or wherever and it just so happened that when I finally got in touch a to a James on curry through instagram of all places. Because that's how you are a reporter in two thousand twenty. He got back to me and he told me to call them and I said so. Where do you live now? And he told me he lived in ended Oklahoma. which just so happened to be an hour away from me so sad to say I mean up? My editors were quite happy that the travel budget got significantly reduced instead of flying to Moscow or something had to drive up the road. Enid so Royce you reach out to James on you find out. He lives near you. You can get his story you were drawn to his story because he had the shortest career in NBA history. Three point nine seconds. Did he know that when I approached him very much so if you type it in on Youtube if you type in his name. There's a video out there that somebody made and it's got over a million views or something like that and it's kind of like a awhile did you fact in the NBA and James on understood that he was basically the answer to a trivia question and not a flattering trivia. Your question was he a highly touted recruit so james on Curry was really a household name Nina and so much so that in North Carolina lineup basketball history. He's a true legend. He scored more points in high school than Michael Jordan ever heard of them. James Worthy David Thomson and he said that record and he was a five star recruit. He was committed in North Carolina. He was a big big deal and people from all around the state would come to watch him play. He was routinely scoring forty thirty. Five fifty fifty five points at night. He had a dedicated beat reporter that would come and follow him around. He was destined to be the next Great College Basketball Player order and thereby the next grade professional basketball player so from there does he get all the offers two big schools fast track to the NBA. Say He did have the office. Everybody recruiting him. It was it was set up for him to go play for Roy Williams at North Carolina and lead them to national championships and get drafted. Be One and done player go the NBA. All that type of stuff was set up for him to happen. The crazy Roese thing about it was. He plays a game against Graham High School and I think he scored forty seven in that game is team was on the fast track to a state title and the next morning. He shows up at school and he gets called into the principal's office so he walks down the hall. He walks in the principal's office and he sees a bunch of police officers officers in there. And he thinks that they're in there. Because I want to ask him for an autograph and instead of that they put him in handcuffs. James on was caught selling drugs to an undercover cop. James is on sold him. Marijuana and his total take Fort Meena was ninety five dollars so while he was dropping shopping. forty-seven on Graham High School. They were printing up a warrant for his arrest. So at that point everything completely changed from didn't take long for North Carolina to pull his scholarship. He was kicked out of school kicked off the basketball team. He finished high school at an alternative school and really at that point just didn't know if he was going to get another chance. So what does he decide to do. Angst as you might believe since he was so so good some other schools got involved but this kind of random place jumped out to him and really kind of hooked victim and that was Oklahoma State University and part of what Oklahoma State had to sell for him was their coach. Eddie Sutton was a recovering alcoholic and he understood second chances and of course he brought him to Oklahoma state because first of all he's really good second of all because he saw something in James on and thought it was worthwhile taking that shot on. So how does he we do. When he gets to Oklahoma state he was good? There was a game where he was playing in Madison Square Garden. Achieving his dream they're playing against Syracuse. And he was part of a big second half running Ron and three on the insist this cowboys happily Dick. Vitale called him a diaper Dandy and it was a dream come true feeling feeling this outboard played one of the greatest games in all time in college basketball history at triple overtime game against Kevin Durant and Texas. The Dow Jones scored forty something Durant scored forty something and it's known as to be one of the Great Games it starts getting you know. Draft Talk. Scouts are coming to watch him play so it all kind of felt like it. It had come together for James on and he was going to have a shot after all. So curry gets drafted by the Bulls. What happens next? So it shows the Bulls and he's he's sent down to the D. League. He's brought backup. He sent back down. He's brought backup. He's bouncing back and forth and in his mind. He's he's not really getting his chance. And he the as a couple incidents that again pop-up form one. He was at the D. League showcase in Idaho and he gets busted on public urination and gets arrested for it the Bulls suspend them one game. And now it's like you know he's got another thing kind of tagged with them there and here's another incident where he's driving to the airport in Chicago Gago. He says he gets lost on the way to the airport and he misses his flight. Going to New York. And that's another strike from the Bulls and in his mind that that was one that like they couldn't get over over. There was a time where their coach Scott Scales kind of told the team this practices an open tryout for playing time and he felt like he showed everybody up he was he was crushing it. He killed everybody thirty. On the court. And the scrimmage and Scott pulled him aside and I think that scowls thought it was a compliment but it really wasn't at least not to James on but he said you're going to be the best player in the D. League and and that kind of crush James on spirits and GE just goes through the season and he just never gets a chance with them and they end up cutting them after the year so he gets cut by the Bulls else and after that he's bouncing around the Euroleague D. League teams. How does he make his way back to the NBA? Hey bounces around. He gets them chances and he gets drafted. He's actually the first draft pick ever for the Bakersfield Jam. There the D League affiliate for the Los Angeles Clippers Clippers and he's doing great becomes a D. League all star and he finally gets his call he gets the call. Uh what happens next so he gets a call up and suit up for the clippers there in Boston. They're playing the Celtics. It's late third quarter. There's some foul trouble issues. Injury issues for Rondo now. The final possession for the Boston Celtics. The James on gets says number called Mike Dunleavy says game with three point nine seconds ago. There's three point nine seconds left on the clock in the third quarter James on jumps up runs runs the scores table and look look comes in James on Curry Hey is first appearance ever in an NBA game. What a thrill? It's gotTa be dream fulfilled hears his my name called out in the arena runs out on the court. He's guarding region. Rondo Sri couldn't have expected it right at this moment a week ago. I sure didn't expect Eddie. There's a quick play run. Not much happens doesn't touch. The ball doesn't do anything other than just kind of stand there with a half. The A reasonable job lookers pretty happy to be down by only five buzzer. Sounds runs off the court and De'andre Jordan. Subs is in for him to start the fourth quarter and he never steps on the floor again and like literally never because the next morning he wakes up.

I you know, everybody assumed ROY was leaving. And he did. Now, you may not want that question ask. But it's not up to ROY Williams, whether you're asking that question or not. Yes, mclovin. I'm looking at the clip now, different because ROY Williams, I believe lost that game was already angry. You know if he'd won the game. Do you think he might have been a little softer on that one? But that wasn't her first question. I know. I don't think so. We've talked about it a game, and then you had to talk bigger picture. So you go small picture. And then you go bigger picture with something like that. And then if you get an answer, great, I still have to ask you that question I just feel like you'll get criticized more. If you don't ask the right question. Yes. Mclovin. Did you have a problem with the asking Kyle our about damore Rosa? No, no. I thought that she was. Because Kyle Lowry was upset with management, and he had been a guy who had failed in the postseason inconsistent. And then you lose your best friend Tamar Rosen. And you get quite Leonard and quiet Leonard gives you a title. I love the fact that it made him. Think a little bit here about my, my buddy isn't here. And I feel bad for it, and I'm gonna FaceTime a little later on. So I was fine with that. I was I was okay with it because I thought it was a different question to ask a situation like that actually gave him a platform to show some love to a former teammate where maybe it hasn't on the forefront of his mind who had been weird at left field to give a shout out to the roads and she kind of let him go there and give them some, some kindness, Nick in Los Angeles. I Nick what do you have for me today? Hey, dan. I got a whole rogue Calloway rogue setup. And I'm a five point, eighty next. Nice. Yeah. Thanks. But hey, listen. I thought doors first question was very nuanced. I thought it was excellent. She just an asked. You're gonna stay. You're gonna go see us. How does this championship going to impact your decision and also I, I don't think that she didn't get an answer. She got a very eliminating answer, which was in the heat, you know, in the heat of the moment, or the crescendo of emotion. The guy said, hey, I'm going to consider leaving. He could've said, I'm going to stay that a lot of people want to blame them for saying that in that moment, I didn't say, I'm going to defend, but he said, look, I'm gonna I'm gonna way all my options and I'll consider that later. He you know. So I thought it was very very, it's a good point. Yeah. That's a good point. Nick, thanks for the phone call. She had mach headlines last hour, or at least reasonable Mike headline. Align made an effort. We just had one of our listeners who topper like you missed out an obvious one. I guess this this from Matthew Yuccas. He said, raptors delight.

2019 NCAA championship: Virginia wins its first national title

"Like this. Virginia that seventy five seventy three next to going over time. How big is younger. My goodness. Monsters twenty seven hundred Westwood One. Aa radio network hunter coming up big twenty seven points in the Egypt game. Kyle guy had twenty four Virginia hits all twelve free. Throw attempts in the overtime period. And they come away with the title as you heard eighty five seventy seven in OT. They beat Texas Tech the eighth national title game to go to overtime the first since two thousand eight when Kansas beat Memphis the first national title game between two teams that had never previously appeared in the title game since nineteen seventy nine Magic Johnson's Michigan state team against Larry bird's. Indiana state team Virginia wins this one first title game between schools that had previously never wanted title since nineteen Ninety-one UNLV beat Duke, Tony Bennett becoming the ninth active division one coach to win a national title. I think it was a terrific game to see how these. Guys, played the one thing I said to him before in the locker room. I said you guys faced pressure that no team in the history of the game is faced will really all year. But but being down fourteen against garner web. I said, and you did not panic in that moment, and you fought, and you found a way out I said that I think has prepared you for this moment to the handle the pressure or the the intensity of national championship game. And these guys stepped up to me that was it appeared from Istambul to be a high level game. And you know, we scored eighty five that was in that setting. So good stuff. Hey, coach Bennett. Zach peerless Augusta free press there's a picture in your house. You've talked about before these three guys. Jay huff part of that twenty sixteen class. They've seen a lot of things now and their time at you've yet what are the emotions now attached to that picture? And you know, how does this change that picture in the feelings that you'll see when you see it? Yeah. When they came on the recruiting. Visit remember telling them, look, you're. The foundation has been laid by guys, you know, Joe, and Malcolm are here and all the guys went before. And we had one Sommese championships who've been to be lead eight I said, we're asking to build on that foundation. Even at that house on the hardest step. But if you're willing said, we'll take a chance at mentioned, the rocky post just I said, I want guys wanna chance to title fight and see them come in either as young men or boys and grow into men this season. And I'll mention what happened last year that that can only mature you. I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to build a handle this situation, the playthrough stuff and to have a perspective and poise and resiliencey unless they went through something that hard, and they're very there's really good players. They don't probably get enough credit. Well, I think someone do their town. But they had something different about them collectively. I just one of our themes. I told them before the Auburn game as just bring your two fish and five loaves. It's a story in the bible. And I said it'll be enough. I said it'll it'll be enough for the masses. I said when you guys play the right way, the collectiveness of it takes over. And I've watched it, and I've stepped back, and I've seen this now seen mature through everything. And for them to do what they did, you know and how they've won. It's a great story really ofensive -ly. It seemed as if the Andre took charge there at the end you telling take charge or sometimes it seems like he's trying not. To take. That's you know, Dan regularly. Let's come in that he he I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game. And definitely and he was getting his shots. But he just he you saw them and that when he puts that into boy, it's he special, but no he trying to get on the ball ties. So good and our players. They understand. He's like all right. We gotta get him the ball in these situations and go to work, and you know, we did call. I'm not sure what the answer the question. We did. Call an action form to hit that three in the corner. And then one time time to great pass. But he yeah. I thought he really showed an aggressiveness that we needed. You. Need your top players to step up and make plays. And he did it on both ends you just speak to one that the poyser guy showed the overtime. And also the the previous games prepare them for that. They didn't seem either out of gas. They didn't to motion in handling the overtime. No. Well, I tell you we we had. Three Saturday, Monday games. We played Duke at home, and then we had to go to Carolina. And I I think I said this in the podium before. But I said this is how it's going to be in the tournament. And this is how we're going to prepare on Sunday. And and we did that every time we had those games, and we did it in the NCAA tournament that day in between and they knew what to expect. And I said you're built for this. You're prepared for this. Because this is what we did. And we started that process in January and that Carol do Carolina weekend. And I said just get after it, and we worked in between a lot of people's walked, actually, I don't know. What people do I just know from my experiences a coach in the Pac ten home important that day in between and how you prepare well prepare well and get after it. And so I think they they stepped in the moment they face pressure through the year through the turnament and all that stuff played into it. And that a lot goes to our strength coach, Mike Curtis. I mean, he has those guys as finely tuned machines. And and they just they work. We were smart at the end of the year with how much rest we gave them and prepare them. It's just a balance. Obviously, it it hit Tony Bennett with the national championship ninth. Active coach for the title for our current ACC coaches, Mike, shefty, ROY Williams, and Jim boeheim being the others Virginia six team to win. Multiple overtime games of the NC double A tournament in route to winning national title there. The first to do. So since era Zona in nineteen ninety seven. Cavs sixty six and six over the last two seasons. Best win percentage in division. One college basketball live crew restated Seth Greenberg, Jay Williams, and Jay Bilas, the every time in the last three games when things looked grim at the end of the game for junior late made plays. It looked grim at the end of regulation in this one when they were down to and then all of a sudden tied Rome drives, the baseline Texas Tech over helps the Audrey hunter. Who was spectacular? He wasn't good. He was spectacular twenty-seven points nine rebounds that three he hit out of the right corner is the biggest reason that Virginia's able to win the game. That was a spectacular shot. It took advantage of one of the very few defensive mistakes that Texas Tech made throughout the game. And they hung in there, and and grand fashioned to have a chance to win at the end. But Virginia made play after play that end of the overtime. They were great didn't miss a free throw were they were outstanding

"Tournament is allegedly underway. Let us bring a man who will be calling many of the games all the way through the national championship Turner sports analyst and somebody we watched play in high school. You're even old now south lakes high school. Let's start with this. I ask you as an analyst Dookie when you watch Zay on. What do you see? Wow. See explosiveness? I see, you know, see almost like a combination of a linebacker who jumps like Vince Carter. Is really nothing we've ever seen before in terms of his explosiveness athleticism. But also how hard he plays and steals activity has energy just off the charts. We're so used to comparing people you really can't compare them because there's really been nobody quite like him. That's how unique Zion. Williamson is all right grant beyond Duke. You've had a chance to study the brackets who do you like beyond the blue devils? I mean who jumps out to you as a team that could could at least get to the final four not further. While there's a lot of teams, and I know a mouse opposed to say this. But I think North Carolina is really talented trouble for that. I can get in trouble for that. So I if anyone says anything I'll just pretend I'm seeing Smith, but but not North Carolina. Roy Williams has done a fantastic job. I do think UVA they've had a lot of setbacks adversity in the tournament. But I do think this is this is Tony Bennett's most talented team. And I think they'll get through and get to the final four. I think Michigan state. I know they're in the same region as Duke, but I I was at the big ten conference tournament last week. I followed them Tom Izzo. This team is just balanced tough. They defend they can score. They really don't have a weakness at all as a sleeper team. I like Texas Tech the best defensive team in the country. They got a kid Jerry Kover who's probably wanted to top five players in college basketball that nobody knows about he's capable as they are. Taking a long run. And I love Florida state. You know, I love what they've done Leonard Hamilton. They won twelve of thirteen games in the regular season. People forget they got to the ACC conference finals loss to Duke. But they have a lot of death in very talented. So there's teams out there. Other than Duke believe it or not that are capable for long run. I'm gonna ask you to put all your old man hat for second. You and I did this a little bit the other night in Chicago during the big ten turnament. Will you go back to that last year? Even when you lost to Arkansas Scotty Thurman shot sorry to bring this up. You had seen your late and teams teams at three or four all Americans seem to time. And when you're watching now played there, but you're watching now this one and done era are the guys that he good. I mean, you look at them and think, yeah, these guys could have played when we did and won something. That's a good question. I think I think I think there's some really talented players and a lot of young talented players. But you know, the difference was you had older players more experienced players who had the opportunity maybe go pro who didn't think that UNLV team in nineteen ninety blue blue out Duke and Denver in the championship game. And you had Stacy Augmon.

"And you come through a conference where you have three one sees what does that give your team going forward into the tournament? Well, we. Realized that we played a very difficult schedule. I mean, the the number one seeds Virginia we played once gone back. We played once Duke we played three times. And in fact, the last three years we've played nine times in three years. So that's not exactly a picnic. But what we do understand is that we've played a difficult schedule we've played in difficult league. But all that doesn't mean anything unless you play on game day. And I think our kids we have three seniors that are leaders Luke maye Kenny Williams, Cam Johnson, those guys really lead us. And I think they'll push the guys to focus on that one game. I have coming up nex. But for us it has given us a little conference. We played Kentucky. Also, we played Michigan. So you know, we played a bunch of games against those teams that are getting one seats two seats three seeds. So we realize what we're getting into. But every day, and in the NC double A, you better play that day or you go home and tell them all the time. If you start looking down the road, that's where we're going down the road back home runs again on their way to. Columbus. They will take on a Yona Friday night. And then the winner there they will get the winner of Utah state in Washington coach, I so appreciate you doing this. Thank you. Congratulations on another one seed, good luck this week, and we'll talk again soon. Okay, Mike, you guys have a great day now YouTube. Thank you very much. That's ROY Williams the head coach of Carolina. And as he was rattling those off you realize they played everybody. Yeah. I mean Virginia's at once they played them obviously do because at once he they played them three times played Kentucky. They played Michigan zag. They they have played an uninhabitable. Schedule as a former player in as an analyst. Like, what does that too? When you played everybody. You love it. I mean, you wanna play against the best competition. That's what I loved one. We were at UCLA. We would go out. We'd play at Duke or Duke would come to us. We went to Carolina my senior year and found a way to win against the Bill Guttridge coach team, Ben and then go to the carrier dome and play there. Those are the games that matter those out of conference games. How you challenge yourself who you're playing against in conference? You kind of you kind of stuck with whether or not your conference is good that year or down Mike Hopkins team for Washington, they could potentially play this thing around good team back conference. It doesn't mean they can't advance. The I think this Carolina team right now is playing with such great competence. And they're finding themselves and Kobe white has been really good for a majority of this stretch run. I thought he was pretty poor in the final minute and a half of that game against to understanding time and possession settling for the shot that he settled for rather than driving trying to get to the hoop trying to create for his teammates. Forcing that back onto the defense. Step who's a little tiny details. The ROY Williams will continue to talk his team about as they get ready for the tournament. Maybe that sticks within the ACC does have three one seeds. Do you think there's a chance that we see all three of these teams in the final four shooters chance? I mean, they're all wants. So yet the bracket should work out of it holds true that we would see all three. I don't think we're going to. I think we're going to see North Carolina. Maybe get knocked off by Kentucky. I think Tennessee is going to knock off Virginia in that side. And I think we could see actually to SEC teams get into this nationals among those two just to you. That's your group over there. Right. If all this talk about the ACC, ridiculously good. The one thing we didn't talk about with the ACC. This year is the bottom half of this conference was really really bad the SEC..

Boston BPI gives the bucks and Sixers a thirty two percent chance of meeting in the playoffs. So it was a big win for the seventy Sixers in Milwaukee last night. But does this type of win actually make the seventy Sixers a favorite to win the east diamond would really does. But. Milwaukee is led the Eastern Conference front to back FARs record wise, but it was big fulfilling Delfi to get that win. Because what they want to do. Now is staying at third seat. Okay. They wanna stay in third seed. So they don't have to see the Milwaukee Bucks until the finals, and they have an easier road. And right now Boston is in a good position. I like where Boston is because they're playing Indiana Pacers team if the playoffs started today without their best player on Toronto from the gecko. I have Toronto I tell you what the bucks have been great. But without Malcolm Brocton. This is a big loss for this team. And we cannot understate the fact that he's not available for them right now. I think that kind of opens up the door, and what I love about Toronto is the fact that you have a player go why Leonard it's been there. He's been a finals MVP. So while the Marta rose was great. He had never been to the big stage. He has never excelled on the big stage. You add Leonard in the mix. Now. Hopefully that takes off some pressure from. Kyle Lowry and allows him to be regular season calorie in the postseason. Kyle lowry. And then you look at their bench, and nobody has improved more than PASCAL Siaka. I think in the NBA he did a great job working out all summer long with Rigo Hines out in LA really worked on a skill development. I think he's most improved player in the NBA of everybody plays their best. If everyone is healthy and full strength and the brogden injury, Milwaukee fly so far under the radar brogden gets hurt for six weeks even trend, but to you if everyone is healthy and playing their best who's the best team in these. I'm going with Toronto. So and you Boston really and you go with the buck. I'm saying stay. But I picked truly before the season started. So. Terrier? Well, that's a good choice. Joop? Joop? Like an opponent's street ball uncle drew fair enough. We'll get Steven A and here a little bit later. We have more basketball to get to let me get out of the NFL now because Ben Rothlisberger leadership continues to be a topic of conversation after former Steeler running back, Josh Harris accused Big Ben of candidly, it really terrible thing of intentionally fumbling a ball at the end of the game..

"Yes. Necessarily project to the next. Get different discussion point college basketball. We have as Jim behind said, I think the other day he said there, he's not the best basketball players ever seen. But he does things that I've never seen done on a basketball court. And that is the reality of what he has become in an our college game this year, you had an interesting comparison about Zion as he does project to the next level as relates to another guy in college and another sport projecting to the next level to me. He's the Cuyler Murray in reverse, right? Like, I mean collar Murray were sitting there going like to small accounts. We'd never seen a quarterback owners succeed. Get drafted in the first round all these. There may not be a player like Zeile before. We haven't seen a player like him. He six seven six eight. He's got that size that girth that athleticism. How does it project out to the next level? We won't know until we see it. But somebody's gonna go see it, and they're gonna love it or they're going to say well that didn't work out. So well, I don't really care. I'm appreciative appreciating him for what he is right now. What he is. Right now is the most physically dominating college basketball player. I can remember he is the best player in the country and. Can't miss telling we will continue to break down your brackets as we go, and Sean will give you his final four towards the end of the salads. But also yesterday as a result of state one of the last four teams into the tournament and their coach Bobby Hurley was fired up the more do point guard. He did not hold back any of the stops. Including look they broke out a bubble machine show me that bubble machine because this is fun looking at probably Goebbels nothing. Nothing says celebration like a bubble machine. Living The. on the head coach. It is a stressful. Cannot been go. We start with one that you'll like brewery McElroy and in cool two hundred twenty excuse me, two point two five million dollars. If they won the Players Championship worry. Now, the betting favourite greenie to win the my opinion, and this'll be a controversial statement among the very few people out there who care by Pinon. He's the best player in the world better than always played that way. Yes, best is better than anybody else's best. If he makes pots he will win the master. He had been close so far this year. And finally got that one. So let's go to the NBA the rockets improved to five and one this season. When James harden, Chris Paul and Clint cappella each scored twenty points as the timber wolves one seventeen to one zero two demon is Houston better off when harden isn't taking the scoring load to himself. He's good any way you shape. I mean, if he could score the basketball with cappella, and Chris quality, he's Acilitator and getting those guys easy, baskets and going is playing well too. And I like the. The dishes that they made. And that's why give him a slight chance. To beat the warriors emphasis on the slight this Lou Williams with his first career game winning buzzer beater as his deep three one it for the clippers over the nets. The nets had rallied from ten down the final minute to get it done. And Doc Rivers actually asked about the ethnic nature of the game. Listen to this. He had a great response. Maybe an alley freezer. Type. I don't know. Come on come on. Are you kidding me? My gosh that is the single best sporting event ever. And I'm not going to put the nets in the clippers in that class just yet. But if it was game seven in the finals, maybe but. Okay. I'm glad to clear that up for us. I was doubting. David how does this clippers team keep taking care of business, though, we'll do would hustle defense?.

"How about three consecutive spectacular performances from his eye on eighty one point most by freshman and three games in the tournament history. And now do. The number one overall seed Zion yesterday talking about coach K's message to the entire team as they entered the NCWA tournament. His best is just a live in a moment game by game. And don't look ahead because you know, anything can happen. So right now, we're just taking it day by day and game our game. We don't really worry about you know, the outside noise. Too much. We don't really watch too much TV or see any of that stuff. No. We just keep everything in house. And that's what that's what makes us so close and so special, you know, it's like zero zero now, you know, it's a new season. We just got locking on this tournament. As the best one to punch in the country right there Barrett Zion. Do go one seat for the fourteenth time under that man, the blue devils. They've averaged nearly four tournament wins on the top line in those years. They've averaged two tournament wins went on the to line or lower. So history is good for do here. And we spent a lot of time this morning breaking down brackets, and we will continue to. But let's just take a moment to appreciate those guys did this week. And particularly I and if you think about it got misses a month he comes back, and he is the best player on the floor of the best player in the country three consecutive nights. What do you make of it? He is the most polarizing athlete in any sport professional or collegiate polarizing who know me need to the fact that that e- everybody wants to pay attention to what he is doing. Yeah. So whether whether he's he's the first Duke player, by the way, I think in the history of Duke that everybody loves. I mean, Christian Laettner nobody like Christian Leitner, but not Williamson. Everyone's like the love this guy. He plays with such an unbelievable passion. He he does play with that killer mentality when he put his hand out and looked at his hand after he dropped that beautiful three-quarter pass assist. I was thinking of Booker t back in the WWE days. But he is a phenomenal talent that is can't miss television. I don't care what time of day. He's waiting. He could be Japan played at five thirty in the morning against the Mariners. And I'm watching there's no question. He right now at this particular moment in time is the biggest star. We have an American sports. And I would ask you you are at the SEC turnament you were doing and he had some great games there as well. But what people they even people there? We'll talking about signing. Everybody is and what really comes back to me. And all of this is that there were so many people who said he should not return after that injury that he should not play anymore. You see him with the championship hat there. After winning an ACC championship. Obviously, they have more that they want to do the unfinished business plot. He is loving. This. He's having so much fun. I it's so it's so hard to even imagine it now greenie that maybe he wouldn't have played. I mean what what if we're talking about him. Now, we're here on the show. And I said, no he's coming back. We'll answer sadly, his his love for the game cleared. If you spend five minutes was island. I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days before the start of the season. Now with this team. He loves the game of basketball. He's really enjoyed his time to do. And he loves his teammates. He is bought in hook line and sinker with this group and say like these are my guys we're going to go accomplish this and he's a machine right now. And that's why you know yesterday question field or do. Yes. Sure. Okay. I'll take the field just based on sheer numbers. But if I'm taking one team, he said, okay. You have any one team. Join a national championship. And what's your one reason? Why three point percentage aside, all those things defensive efficiencies at times getting mismatches and being able to dribble doesn't matter? He's gone. We'll use the best player in the country. Yes. Including his teammate Archer..

What North Carolina's sweep of Duke really means

"Bid the ACC game yesterday the Duke North Carolina game. There was an interesting stat. Interesting to me, at least that I gave on Friday with Chris black, and it was that North Carolina had played Duke eight times under ROY Williams in the final game of the regular season with first place in the ACC at stake for North Carolina. Either outright first place or a share now Virginia one yesterday over Louisville. So North Carolina needed a win to get a share a first place in the ACC now in those eight. Times in North Carolina play Duke in the final game of the regular season. Trying to get first place in the ACC tarheels were eight no with games in five zero seven zero eight oh nine eleven twelve sixteen and seventeen. Now, they're nine and go after North Carolina get seventy nine to seventy win over Duke yesterday the blue devils again without Zion. Williamson and Duke struggling shooting from three, and that's why a lot of the experts are not picking Duke to win the NC double A tournament. They were eight of thirty two from three last night. Now, it'll be a little bit different. When I Williamson is back RJ Barrett with twenty six points last night. Cam reddish added twenty three points the tar heels share the ACC regular season title with Virginia's. I mentioned Virginia had a win earlier the evening against Louisville. Cody white, the freshman out of North Carolina. He was all kinds of fun to watch. He had twenty one points Zion. Williamson. Oh did practice while the other day John was out with Waddle and Silvy show on Friday, if you get a chance go back and listen to that the podcast at ESPN, Chicago dot com. You can listen to the podcast of the shows. Zion. Williams had a good practice. Some people thought he might have played last night. But after the game it appeared coach K said Williamson we'll be ready for Thursday's ACC tournament which gets underway. So it's going to be all kinds of fun to watch and see how Virginia North Carolina Duke doing the upcoming ACC

"Go to skip alive. Even a real quick. Hosting. They hey, you give out shadows to middle coach, ROY Williams. I he coached me in high school, and I'm still friend of his, and I wanna tell you some good things about him just before tomorrow, you know, his son Scott, and they say a true measure once characters what you do. And no one else would ever know. We'll Scott Williams is named after choice. Scott who who Smith recreate the first African American, correct? Did not that. Yes. Yes. I did. And also wanna tell you about ROY back when it wasn't cool. We're poor back in high school and ROY would come ten miles out of the way to pick us up on snow days. We were up in western North Carolina Nashville, and he would do that. He'd take us around on Saturday mornings to hut for God beat hunt for a coke bottles. That's before your time to be able to change in for money for our basketball kid. But that's what kind of guy he is. And he would never preach. It never tell me about it. But that's what kind of was I appreciate the call. Thank you so much. I gotta tell you. Well, I just think that ROY Williams is a phenomenal coach who's incredibly unappreciated. And I love Mike. She chefs ski, please don't get me wrong. But I've never felt like he should have been allowed to coach three consecutive Olympic teams. Coach one is fine. But if you are a collegiate coach, not the NBA where you get to draft players, and what have you you're a collegiate coach, you have the license to recruit and going to kids living rooms and recruit them to your program to coach the Olympic team USA two thousand eight two thousand twelve two thousand sixteen I think gives you an incredible advance. As a collegiate coach yet right there. Eight miles away in North Carolina. Roy Williams has has one just as many championships this millennial as Mike chef skiing. And I think that that's the thing that I find absolutely Zion. Williamson is not a Carolina. Okay. All right. RJ? Barrett is not a Carolina Cam radishes, not a Carolina. They're all at Duke. But it's Carolina whose twenty five and five it's Carolina who's been balling with dude. Like, Luke maye for crying out loud in Cameron, Jordan, these boys that look, you know, like they pale in comparison to those iconic collegiate brands at Duke, but here's North Carolina right in the thick of things ready to compete for an ACC, title and a national championship. And I think that's the that's the ultimate testament to ROY Williams. It just is just something special skip. I gotta go preach it called. Thank you so much, but I just have to say that about ROY waves. He's phenomenal. And I don't think he's. Nearly as much credit considering the direct obstacle. He has to prominence that issue. Chef ski and Duke and there he is right there. Battling every year. Credit credit is due. Gotta get on outta here. Okay. See the clippers tonight Lakers in Boston tomorrow night. I'll be both games holiday Monday to lend peace love. That's just a sample of what you hear on the Stephen swift show, weekdays at one PM eastern on ESPN radio and ESPN app..

"This kid looks like he's going to be a fantastic player. But I get so mad. When people like act like monies to only thing that matters in the world. Like, oh, dude, you're going to go in the NBA. Don't play. Okay. So interesting, and I bring Jalen back here. But I have not yet had a chance to ask you. You're just all in your big picture take on what Barclay just said of the holes I on top. I mean, I think it's easy for all of us to take any side. When is not our when it's not our money, or it's not our college experience, I would advise the guy not to play because I think that's the most pragmatic decision. There's nothing else to be gained by playing. But I certainly understand why he will wanna play I in Barkley going into history. Like, plenty of examples who guys that that skip college in play in the NBA, just fine. Just don't necessarily get his point his experience was different than Zion. So I think it's fair for people to sit travels knows it used to be the used to be a rule you could have to stay for years in college. They made hardship exceptions for guys who were allowed to come in and play a little bit earlier than that. What's going on the rock the last twenty five years you understand that? I'm not the biggest proponent of the NCAA. Let me get that out there. I four however, the term you issues of heard a lot of people use it. And I don't think. Accurate when you say there's nothing else to be gained. There's a lot to be gave resigned to continue to compete for the rest of this year. He can improve as a basketball player under coach K. He can work on his jump shot. He could try to plan the ACC tournament and win that regular season win that when the ACC tournament you can get to the tournament. Pobably win the championship. All that's going to do is heightened sponsorships heighten his endorsements make him a bigger star. And then when he gets to the lottery, he becomes the number one pick because still going to have an amazing NBA career still make a ton of money..

"So you can watch from anywhere coming up. Maybe Tony around is in the problem in Pittsburgh winding up to take shots at somebody else. You'll hear who right after this. Back on get up. And after Ben Rothlisberger through this game ending interception against the Broncos and a week twelve loss. He went on his radio show when he criticized the route that Antonio Brown had run on the plate ground, as you know, is now on his way out of Pittsburgh after a trade. Demand tweeted that Rothlisberger has an owner mentality. According to Steelers general manager, Kevin Colbert Robbins burger has earned the right to publicly criticize his teammates. These comments from the GM I've gotten a lot of attention. He said Ben is the unquestioned leader of the group. Like, I said, he's the elder statesman and the Super Bowl winner players were smart. They'd listen to him because he's been there. He's done it. He can tell them. No guys. What you're doing is not is or is not good enough to do this. And honestly believe that could be a burden on him more often than he may like to admit he's got fifty two kids under quite honestly, I want them to step up and say, hey ban. What do I have to do? Can I do this better? What do we have to do to win a Super Bowl? These comments have gotten a lot of attention. We're delighted to have Dominic Foxworth who's in town too, high noon later today was able to stop. By here and give us some perspective on that. So when you hear the comments calling the teammates, kids, etc. What is your reelection theory aiding obviously, and it's stupid because it doesn't help anyone first of all it's wrong. And it's a natoma to football culture everywhere that I'm so we've heard a bunch of players say yesterday that the mentality and a locker room is every man's thing. Bill Belichick trees Tom Brady. Theoretically, the same way he treats everyone else raising any particular player to a higher pedestal than any other players something that no football team has ever preached and believed it, and then the second reason why it's a guy who's a GM who's supposed to have good strategic vision. This doesn't help anybody. This isn't good for Ben Rothlisberger. When he tries to rent the locker room. This isn't good for his teammates. This isn't good. For tomlin's. Not good for the Steelers is not good for the GM himself. The only person that it seems like someone good for is Antonio Brown. Because all this does reiterate that things that we all we all heard Antonio Brown say, and we kinda discredited some of us discredited because all that Antonio Brown. But note, it seems like it is the case Ben has the owners. Taliban, and they support I was struck by how extraordinarily passionately so many football players reacted to this guys who are usually measured. Yes, why? Specifically, what is it that bothered people?.

"Well, this response on we'll give it 'cause it's another one sitting on the fence kind of thing. I have no problem with guys going out of high school the NBA that is their rule for them to go to college for one year, and it's helped them they don't make as many mistakes. Lebron James did not make a mistake. Kobe. Bryant did not make a mistake there. Tone of kids that did make a mistake. Trying to go before they're physically mature before. They're ready. You know, sixteen guys playing against six three guys all the way through high school. How do you project? What he's going to do in the NBA. There is no perfect rule. I don't see a problem with anything. We'll adjust and adapt to what we're doing. But you know, it's it's it's the game. We've sir we meaning college basketball have served as a farm system for the NBA for many years. They make better decisions after a kid plays in college for one year, two years, three whatever it is. But there is no perfect grew. Lebron? James is done. Okay. Last time. I looked he was still still making a few baskets when and championships Kobe, and but I do think that some probably more kids make mistakes, then it goes and goes easily, but at the same time. Heck, there's no perfect rule. Tell me again, what do you want to do and let a kid do it? And finally coach I'll go back to your team. You know, what a championship team looks like a plan extraordinarily well right now and got the huge win the other night. Does this look like one of your teams, you think has a chance to be there at the very end where you were being very kind to me in the opening because talking about how well we shot the ball how? Well, we rebounded about you forgot to say that we can guard our lunch. We've got to get better. We gotta get better on the defensive end of the floor. And if we do that and stop turning the ball over we do some other things that are pretty good. Now, we didn't shoot it worth a darn against Duke the other night, but we've been a good shooting team. And and the other night, we shot we just didn't make them. But we have a chance to be one of those teams at the end of the year can be in the mix and every year there's probably ten to fifteen teams that could legitimately get on a six game run. And that's what I'd like to do. Every year is have my team one of those teams that has a chance, but we've gotta get lot better. I'm telling you, defensely, it's it's just a matador defense. We assure you to the basket as much as anybody ever. It's we gotta get better on that end up. Promise you coach. I can't tell him. I appreciate you doing this this morning. Thank you so much like the rest of the way, we'll talk to you right before the tournament thoughts. Thank you very much Michalek. You guys show. You guys do a nice job. Thanks, coach, ROY Williams, North Carolina. Great to have him here. Let's go back. Yeah. He's he's known him forever..

"I mean, I think their biggest challenge is going to come out of the east in my opinion. And the challenge is going to be a Milwaukee. Joining us really should be described as the breaking news this morning from ghetto. Is it green as a doctor in the because people are selling them short? No one is giving them any quite that the best record in the sport. All they do is beat good teams. They have guys you've never heard of because they play in this small market. And yet they are so much better than people. Give them reason to believe invade are the biggest threat to the warriors. You know who had the best record in league last year. Tell me Toronto. Would it at me that didn't on much when we got over that yearbook? The rockets had Iraq is Chris Paul was healthy. They would've won the championship went really fast. Who is the real threat? You think in Milwaukee? Oh, really? I really do. Jaanus and the key to me is going to be Lopez. If Lopez rolls and gets into post them, they're going to gonna be tough to the write that down into. In writing that box. We're going to as we go through and this. And then meantime, as far as the kings are just quickly the respect that the warriors showed that kings. They beat them all four times this year. But if you listen to the comments that came out from after this game Sacramento's common like people don't want to pay attention to them. They're another one no one pays attention to that team is coming you always give hugs to the team. You beat four times. The all go to beat. They're not gonna hug a team that beat them four times. Right. But to your point they'll the erection of talent that they have assembled now that they are pieces there that you can actually close your eyes for the first time in a really long time. I grew up in northern California. There hasn't been a lot to cheer about since they had the cowbell back in the arena days. Now, you've got guys like Aaron vox who quite very looking back on that draft. You can clearly say he probably should have gone in front of Lonzo ball without without question. If the Erin FOX played on a different team. He would be one of the biggest stars in the sport right now. People. Are we talking about Darren FOX on shows like this one every single day? He played on one of the teams that we pay attention to. Obsta buddy healed as we were talking about him saying his house and all that what about him not taking the wide open three at the end of the game earlier in a game where he took a questionable shot in coach God onum about it. So now later in the game you've got to let it go. But as a young player is stuck with them. And that was a contestant shot. Kevin Durant has seven foot plus lift, and it was a bad shot and you see the coach getting on. But now later in the game is stuck with him as a young player, and he didn't pull the trigger. And he is a shooter they needed to be let him to shot that if he knocked down at leads all of the shows this morning. Okay. So we got interesting stuff there. Some very good games as the NBA came back with a bang last night after the all star break right now. Let's get up and go which is brought to you by Oh, leave you've. New Orleans pelicans. Interim general manager Danny ferry met with Anthony Davis this week and informed him the team will continue playing him. But they're cutting his minutes. Jalen is this the right way to handle it? They going to continue to cut his minutes over the next three to five games. And then his shoulders going to be injured is going to need some of that to leave. I love the way you brought the sponsor and still made a very valid point with you at some point here. They will shut him down. It just makes no sense.

Zion Williamson injury: Duke star reportedly has $8 million loss of value insurance policy

"What's the insurance policy that Zairean Williamson has it Duke? So you can get a loss of value insurance policy which protects you if you fall in the draft, but presenting on, it's basically useless. I Duke Duke buys all the insurance policies to the players. I think that the exception of RJ Barrett who actually he came in with an insurance policy. He got his senior in high school that takes him all the way through his first year. But for the most part of the last five years colleges have been doing these insurance policies an eight million dollar policy for Zion cost you about fifty thousand dollars. It's all it's all above board. It's part of the rules. It's part of getting a player. But again he would start collecting at pick number seventeen. So given what we know of the injury. And even if he injured himself worse, you couldn't imagine that he would ever fall there. So it's there it is protection. But I don't think it will ever be used as an athlete collected on an insurance policy. Yes. FOX Freya Lamu from Oregon. Did there was there's oh who collected more Keithly elected from USC? There's been a couple, but and and that's important for the insurance industry to to know there's been guys who collected on disability, which is like you never play again. But the the more recent product is this offer value where they base the way it works is they basically project where you're going to go you sign the insurance policy, and then they tell you, okay. Like fifteen or twenty picks after that. That's when you that's when the clock starts going the money starts coming in. So it's been collected. The problem is though with Zion. Williamson Duke ensures them for eight million him for eight million dollars. But what's he's really worse? I mean, he's probably worth eighty. Million. So he's he might be worth eight million to to do, but they're really not giving him the the full value. And that's gonna be the next bait. Even though there's only so many Williams, and the other thing is when to and this technicality, but I think it's fun to talk about in DC way. So when Duke pays the insurance policy these insurance policies, if you pay the premium policy, it is tax free you collect your money tax free unless the school pays for it. And then you have to pay taxes on it. So for some of these players if they do have money it's actually worth it for them to pay for the policy instead of the

"roy williams" Discussed on 106.1 FM WTKK

"Dave take you through the rest of the show here in just a little bit warrant a finish up. Some thoughts here from McKay. Mish pavilion after Carolina's big win over Georgia Tech seventy seven to fifty four the final score. Tar heels lead by seven at the break. But then in early twenty two to run for Carolina in the second half open things up, and and the tar heels were never really challenged again led by as many as thirty in the game and ended up winning by twenty three when it was all said and done Eric. Let's start with the positives. And there were plenty of the tar heels again have that big run which was so beneficial for them and the Virginia Tech game and came again here tonight this time early in the second half Cameron Johnson and Kobe white. We're both spectacular offensively. Plenty of other guy. Did some good things as well. But but certainly white and Johnson were the individual standouts tonight for the tar heels and in the second half. I think you saw a little bit more of Carolina imposing its will little bit gone out and ran some more four some turnovers but live ball turnovers where they could run really executed nicely on the fast break time for some big finishes and ended up pulling away for for quality road win eye-popping numbers, certainly come off from white and Johnson who are fifteen to twenty three combined from the field and of that of that they're only eight shots that they took. They were not three pointers and there were nine of fifteen from behind the arc. So just tremendous tremendous percentages from both of them on high volume shooting. But then you look at a couple of other things Robinson's three or four he comes in and. Brandin Brandon comes in and against only seven points. But he plays eighteen minutes and those are quality minutes and meeting minutes were necessary, probably inflated a little bit due to win leaky got hurt and went out. So maybe some of those would have not been in. But call it fifteen eighteen minutes that he comes in. And if he can give you that where it's good caliber shots within the offense. It's a win every time Brooks and may both had nine rebounds may struggling right now with his shot some, and I think that you can just see it. It's not. And I am not sure that it's all him. I think some of it is the offense is struggling to find him shots that he can take when they're bigger players from the opposition because he's playing out of position. But but I think you play out of position because you got guys that are in the right position. And he's probably the one who is most flexible to do that. But he still gets nine rebounds. And then Carolina eight turnovers in the first half seven and the second the pace and style of play to score seventy seven points. You know, I think that's that's probably acceptable. You look at also that Kobe white has eight assists in the game to go along with his scoring which is a remarkable to think about how many points he was touching for this team tonight, also work, noting when you're talking about the turnovers in the two halves, and you kind of mentioned this. I mean, the eight turnovers in the first half. It was a slower pace in the first for sure second half seven turnovers, and I'm gonna guess maybe two or three of those came in the final two to three minutes when the tar heels had had gone to the the the guys at the end of the bench. And so I do think that turnover number significantly improved. Even though it was only one total turnover difference if that makes sense between right-wing the two two things I think Carolina, obviously is gonna leave this game. Not happy about one is the leaky black. What are you gonna do about that as we heard a left ankle injury for leaky black? That's all we know leaky was certainly in some discomfort. When it happened. Just kind of fell awkwardly trying to challenge a shot. He did walk right past us when he was being helped off the court does not putting any pressure on that ankle. And did have you know, was kind of smiling. With Brandon Huffman in sterling Manley and cracking a joke, and who knows what any of that means. But certainly hope that that leaky is able to recover quickly. That's number one. And number two. Eric more of the basketball side of things for Carolina. This was a game where rebounding titles are good rebounding team. And we have not seen offensive rebounding numbers, quite like this from Carolina because one real good, and I just six total or excuse me, just seven total and only one second chance point that was on a free throw the garrison Brooks made after an offensive rebound now, again, probably nitpicking a little bit in a game where the tar heels shoot a high percentage almost fifty percent for the game. And. In the red hot second half. So nitpicking a little bit as we said. But having said that, you know, ROY Williams, and you even heard it in the cut. You know, ROY Williams wants wants bigger numbers on the glass than that. And I think you look at the one really bright spot for Georgia Tech tonight was the play of banks who's been playing very well who ends up with only seven points, but you look at the seven points and six rebounds. And you said, yeah, but he was three or six. So you started he made a good difference rebounding presence inside he was shot blocking presence, even though none of them were such inflated numbers. But then eighty guy was was really good for them seven or fourteen had a lot of opportunities was a guy that played thirty seven minutes during that game and banks isn't there for thirty five. Those are those are two big bodies as athletic and big a frontline. Well, may maybe I shouldn't say that grossly right now that we've seen, but I but banks is a big player. I think it affects a lot of what we did around. The basket doesn't mean that we can't do better or shouldn't do better and more have the offensive rebound is more of a component and staple of our offense. But. Tonight. It wasn't the good news for the heels was that they had enough firepower to offset that that that one came up short. Let's get to our Werner ladder player of the game. Werner ladders rise above the rest and are preferred on more than any other brand on job sites across America because innovation safety and durability are built into every product Werner's the official ladder of the NCAA and available at Lowe's everywhere after wins. We of course, had to Twitter. Let's you help us. Choose just two choices tonight. And I think you can probably get through those two guys work Cam Johnson with his twenty two points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals. And then also Kobe white who had nineteen points, eight assists compared to just two turnovers and three rebounds. And man, this is as close vote is we've had all year who knows what it's going to end up as the votes gonna stay up there for a for twenty four hours. But as of this moment, Cam Johnson fifty-one percent Kobe white forty nine percent of the vote, and that's probably about right? Both those guys. Probably deserve the co player of the game tonight for what they were able to do. But we'll name Cameron Johnson. The Werner ladder player of the game for this one. But air having said that about Cameron Johnson. Kobe white, and you said in very astutely mentioned this late. We said Harrison Barnes was the last freshman to have twenty points in back to back games for Carolina. He did it in three straight games and in the NC double A tournament. So Kobe white just misses that number tonight as he at twenty seven the other night or the other day against Virginia Tech and just just only nineteen points tonight, but the assists number when you add that in in those two games. Kobe had fourteen total assist in those two games as well. And so man what he is doing at that position right now is is pretty fun to watch. And I mean turnover say, yeah. That four to one ratio, which you know, it's awfully good. I mean, I think that even a couple of those you might think that he could trim that a little bit because one at least one was just an just a miscue, and but it's really fun to watch him. I mean, I think that knowing. Just what kind of scoring power is coming in that package named Kobe white. It's fun to watch because your expectations are so high. And to watch his I think he's becoming more and more comfortable. There was one time tonight that he called a high screener role in the offense. And then all of a sudden he got rid of it. And he said, no that was the wrong call and so he shifted gears. So you know, it was just interesting to watch how he's growing. So Carolina gets the big win. Seventy seven fifty four titles. Improved a sixteen and four on the year. Six and one in the ACC Georgia Tech falls to eleven ten three and five in the league. Eric will have plenty of time to to preview this game on Saturday. But this feels like a really big game on on Saturday for Carolina, not just because of the standings. You've got a couple teams. I only have one loss in the ACC tarheels and in Louisville. But because of what happened in in Chapel Hill and not just the fact that Carolina lost. But if you heard ROY Williams in the post game a few minutes ago, he said it was one of the few times in his coaching career that he didn't even recognize his teams that this isn't my team. And of course, he didn't mean that literally he just meant that Carolina was not playing any. Anything like you expect Carolina to play and you expect that because you see at ninety nine percent of the time. And so just feels like an important game coming up for the heels you look at it, and it was five games ago. And I think that that's at that point in time. We were coming off of the win at NC state. You felt like there was some momentum there NC state at that time was really thinking that their season was rolling, and it was at that time. And then you bring Louisville and at home, and you think oh, boy it's a chance to play against a really high caliber team just laying absolute egg. Now, I'm not saying that that was not at the hands of Louisville that forced you into land that egg. But it was like coach said it's a team that you don't really recognize. I think to me if you look at the body of work since that time, and it's been four wins. Now in a row this team has is really the composition of the Carolina team is different now than where it was. Was versus Louisville. I think they were less consistent there. We had seen that in some of their early season games. They're more consistent. Now again expected to be the case at this time of the season. But I'm excited for it. I think it's a great test. I think it's a great test for a team that's been undefeated on the road this year, which is Carolina. In ACC play because you can be sure that that they'll be Rockin. Speaking of NC state, the Wolfpack was in overtime with Virginia game just finished up a moment ago. The Cavaliers hold on for a one point win over state in Raleigh sixty six sixty five the final score there for genius or Virginia was up three as state chunk desperation three Marquel? Johnson and Virginia. Fouled him on the three point shot. Johnson. Missed the first free throw then made the next to Virginia was able to get the ball inbounds and run out the clock. So the Cavaliers win a tight one in overtime against St. sixty six sixty five so quick check of the ACC standings Senator today, but he'll get us out of here. Cavaliers now. Seven and one Duke is seven in one after its win last night against Notre Dame. Tarheels are six and one after the win this evening Louisville. The other team in conference play that only has one loss. The moment. The cardinals play tomorrow night at Wake Forest the teams that lost tonight. NC state falls to four and four now in conference play. And also Georgia Tech with that loss to Carolina false three and five and ACC action. So Carolina half a game behind for Jinyan Duke right now just Kazan played as many Cavaliers and blue seven and one in the league heels tied with Louisville at six and one again the cardinals play tomorrow night. And then the heels in the colonel's each other on Saturday. All right, Dave's gonna get to through the rest of the coke post game report that includes an interview with Cam Johnson animals able to record camp. A few minutes ago. You'll hear that after this break and more. Tar heels us a big second half run to pull away from Georgia Tech and keep a clean slate in ACC play on the road. Seventy seven fifty four the final heels with the wind from learfield..
