Nice fantastic but one of the greatest games in nba history. Come on man with a buck you talk about. Have you forgotten bill russell. I'm not one of the young. Cats are not one of these guys with the elite started with. Michael jordan showed up for another generation league started when magic johnson showed up magic. Johnson and larry bird. Hey man i'll even go back to the greatest winter sports bill russell. There was a game seven. Nine hundred. Sixty two against the st louis hawks for bill russell and they gave in which boston won over time. One twenty five hundred twenty three where the combination backcourt combination. Bill sharman about cousy with five for forty from the field. The only reason why the celtics won that championship won that game seven which gave boston for championships in a row. Because bill russell had thirty points in forty rebounds thirty points in forty rebounds so wendell what the fuck are you talking about. As far as saying that janas addenda cuco again was he did was amazing. What he did was great. What he did was fantastic. What he did was barring. Wouldn't it was the best playoff performances of the season. Dan how about kevin durant what he didn't gain five in the second round of the nba playoffs the season. The game that he had.

"Where unlike middleton i feel like middleton like booker like chris paul knows where his spots are breaking roll and i think drew was kind of taking what the defense gives him and i think that just that just puts his sons defense especially eight. But i mean they're all kinds of their conservative and deceptive. You know they want you to take. Low percentage shots. So they're going to try to go into those And withdrew going the row of okay. Let's he's kind of just seeing how much closer he can get to the rim essentially and that's just a great way miss layups over deandre eytan essentially. That's kind of. That's kind of what's been happening to him. All series as opposed to like you know middleton just being a little bit more methodical. But i agree with jackie honestly. I just think he's doing a law is the set. This is going to go six. At least it might go seven. I think you wanna use him to just try to wear down chris. Paul and booker in whatever you can get from him like considered a bonus but honestly like it's like what you said. Jackie when you have when you have that type of mentality or shooting stroke or whatever you wanna call it Maybe it's just a moment of self. Del like whatever it is. You can't guarantee that that guy is always gonna be consistent. Like i don't really necessarily want to be running much stuff for him Honestly i would lean if you need to lean even more heavily on middleton and pick and roll like. I feel like that's a big reason. They also didn't turn the ball over very much He was just he was just really good in it So yeah. I think don't know i just i just feel like drew. Holiday deserves a bit of a defense. I get that. He's not shooting well and everybody is kind of focused on that. But it's just he's doing so much like full court press in the nba finals for a whole game. Like try squatting down that low for like for like five seconds you know like for me five seconds but like it's just yeah it's it's it's really incredible. He's also he's creating a ton of points with his steals like he's he's creating good offense for them. It's just not in the way that you know Chris paul or booker or middleton does sense sear. it still hasn't been line for finals be potentially with two big games may be st. I had a. He was nine to one before the finals. But it does seem. I guess jaanus or booker now. The way this series is yeah. Those would be yeah you to candidates. Hey some folks are quick to doubt the rookies or even understate. Their excellence their playoff series. Make no mistake. This is their time to shine and show out with career defining moments on that court. Here's a famous on minna. Go way back for your thinking about. Overlooked rookies Tom heinsohn who passed away recently. legendary celtics announcer hall of famer really great underrated player but as a rookie. Nineteen fifty seven celtics. The celtics had never won. The title goes to a game seven against the saint. Louis hawks bob cousy is terrible. Bow cousy goes to for twenty. Can't make a shot. He got bill russell. He's a rookie. Not totally an offensive player. He's only scored nineteen They need a hero. And who's the hero. Holy cross his own. Tommy heinsohn rookie puts up thirty seven points. Twenty three rebounds seventeen for thirty three Was awesome and fouls out in double. Ot what happens to this game goes to double ot heinsohn vows out. Famous shot of him crying on the sidelines. Can't believe he found out at the celtics end up winning the game in the last minute. They win by two. He gets carried off the court. There's a famous photo of him All these people surrounding him. It's one of the great rookie moments of all times in the finals. You heard about magic in nineteen eighty heard about some other ones but i think that was the first great one and that's a wrap. Just like these rookies like tommy heights at one on the court you can win with your insurance getting the personalized service of a local agent offer. Surprisingly great rate with state farm like a good neighbor state.

You guys are awesome sending them and keep them coming. No don't set the athletic dot com. Email him in tweet in act no-dong think leave him in the youtube comments before we get to those. There's only one playoff game on tonight. Game two between the nuggets and the sons. So we're gonna have lots of time on tomorrow's morning podcasts. On the daily show live at ten am eastern on youtube to discuss the pacers firing coach yorker and after one season reports that lebron is chasing changing his jersey number from twenty three back to six. I mean that's got a lot of people open their eyes. They're leelee will land stevenson's old leaguers number. That's what i came here to the beach today. We might talk about those things that were breaking after our daily shows morning. We're not well the stadium for tomorrow because again one game we can do a real deep dive on nuggets game too. So let's get to the questions tests. Yeah we've got a good batch here. I one so simple one quick one. Which potential finals matchup would you like to see. The most as from homs h skeets. What do you got eight teams remaining who you want to see matched up in the finals. Well if i'm being completely honest the raptors are out of it. So i don't truly care. I like a lot of these teams remaining on excited. With any sort of matchup you can come up with to win one hundred dollars. I guess my answer is any team in the west versus any team besides the nets in the east. That would get me one hundred bucks from tests so sure. I'll take that son's next nets. I find extremely just intriguing match-ups wise if that were to happen in possibly could the tweet going around. We've talked about a number of times task. Five teams left in. This year's playoffs have never won an nba title. Which i think is pretty cool. It's the jazz. The nuggets the sons the clippers and the nets seventy sixers the last remaining team in the playoffs to win a title to win the chip back in eighty three for out loud. Liano how much you remember that. Sixers title at the parade for that one owned by the bucks in seventy one. And then the saint louis hawks and fifty seven. Yeah we count that from the atlanta hung up that tweet again to add onto it something that jay don day tweeted and he said despite all that despite all these teams not having ever one one or being forever since they won one we could still end up with durant in his fifth. Nba finals going for his third ring versus colli in his fourth finals. Going for his third. Bring those a great point. It's it's possible. Of course the clippers are down here nets looking like a juggernaut but clippers nets that narrative that macha tasks i think is obviously would be exciting. Th the chase for those rings but my answer honestly. This question is i. don't care. And i love a lot of these teams remaining so it doesn't matter to me. Yeah and not to be a curmudgeon. But i think the clippers series would be the series where there wouldn't be a team to root for for a lot of these. People hate the clippers and a lot of people hate the nets. And so would it do ratings. i think so. I think. I think it's still even though. It's not the lakers huge market. And even though it's not the knicks still huge market. So i think there will be a lot of people hate watching that thing but it does probably have the the biggest story lines from individual players. That's four four. Sure and i think the clippers as well that probably trump's whether it's a at your chris paul or something like that but yeah no team in. The west has ever won a finals of the remaining four teams. That's pretty neat. And yeah maybe brooklyn can build the lower and build a case against the new york knicks for the fight against new york. So i would. I would probably go with that as well. Those two teams. Even though. I'm in atlanta hawks. There just because i think the biggest buzz would be nets next clippers even though it's weird to say that because it is the clippers. We're talking about here. It's the store by far the most. Sorry our series easily. And you're saying it is new york versus la. Just not the new york and la teams. That are the biggest the match up. I wanna see is nuggets vs sixers. Joel embiid nagoya yokich. These two have been circling each other for the entire season. Who's the best center in the league. Obviously yokich won the mvp and bead came in second in voting. He could've won if he stayed on the court a little bit more often. This season probably affair series between these two teams. I would think is well. The nuggets are going to be better on offense. The sixers better on defense but embiid yokich haven't played against each other since december twenty nineteen. These have been on the top of the league for a couple of seasons at this point but they just haven't ran into each other to actually show down down low in the post shack said that yokich brought the big man back. Obviously embiid's a huge part of that as well if those two guys are the marquee players in the finals. Big men really are back. Yep that's a good one. We sort of like we were talking about yokich winning the mvp and then some people spitting the narrative like how it was oddly similar and beat going for forty and thirteen on the same day where you'll get twins mvp that's like even robinson and akeem back in the ninety. Yeah again a bit of a stretch. That's a great one though lead. You have another one that you would throw in. We're saying clippers nets because the star power trae bringing up the big guys of course with the mvp yokich versus the runner-up embiid. Is there another one. That's juicy well. I wanna see the hawks because we live here be great to get into the fortress and catch game down there thousand dollars. It'd be worth but the other one would be the sixers and the jazz to say donovan. Mitchell ben simmons. That's kind of were put on the back burner for awhile. But wouldn't it be good to see those to go to johnny because they'd likely match up on each other as well and of course donovan wasn't happy with ben being given the rookie of the year. Because he wasn't technically a rookie..
