"I like it. I like it. Well, I'm of that wavelength. So I'll have to check that one out again. Some other news. Kyle Lowry dealing with an injury. We don't know what he says he's going to be available, but we will see. It was hamstring as I recall. And this one. And those are those are tricky. I mean, Kyle Lowry playing and Devin Booker not obviously that hamstring injuries aren't all the same, but still different. Would be a surprise, I think, for him to be out there. And of course, you know, he was frustrated because if you're Kyle, I really like this is you're getting up there in years. This is a real shot to win an NBA championship. To get to suffer an injury now is absolutely brutal. Yeah, for sure. I mean, we're into, as you said, we're into the point for Kyle Lowry words. You don't want to have any missed seasons. Like where you're kind of like, we left a chance on the table there because of an injury. So yeah, I'm very, very, very interested to see the no update yet as of now that they're, again, they're going to play in a couple hours here on Sunday. We have not heard any kind of update though as far as, well, what that looks like for Kyle Lowry and is he going to play isn't he going to play in that so we'll be waiting on that and then if he does play of course we'll be watching my Chris Paul a couple of years ago where it was like he went out there and played and was clearly he should not be out here right now. So definitely have an eye on that one for sure. All right, and last but certainly not least, congratulations, Scotty Barnes, rookie of the year, very, very close race. Were you surprised that it went this way that a white Scotty Barnes? I wasn't, I thought just looking at the different things, I really thought I worked. It's going to be Scottie Barnes because I just had a sense of enough people are going to give him that nod for his team got to the into the postseason and they had already clinched it by the time the ballots were doing all that. So I thought that that might be FBI. As you said, very close race. Scottie Barnes basically be having boys. That's what it came down to. A 48. Mobile we got 43 Kate Cunningham got the other 9. Then for second place votes, it went barns mobley Cunningham and then Barnes one last third place folks the moment with 378 total points to 363. Cunningham.

"Yo, yo, what is up? This is Rafael from NBA big board and I have Sam Ferris from the draft dummies on the show today. And in this episode, we are going to talk about the exciting 2022 NBA rookie class. So I guess it was the class of 2021, but we're going to talk about who's the most exciting rookie, The Rookie of the year, and the best 5 rookies going forward, stay tuned. All right, shout out to each and every person that has made NBA big boy your first listen of the day. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. I almost said locked on NBA draft. I have to make sure that I don't say locked on NBA draft, but just shout out to each and every person that has supported the channel as we've made the transition. And today my guest is Sam Ferris. If you've been listening on locked on NBA draft, you know Sam from the NBA. Well, not NBA. But draft dummies always had great insight. And now this is our first time working together. This is our first podcast together, which is long overdue. Sam, man, what is going on? How are you today? I'm doing very well. Thank you so much for having me on. I know it is a bit overdue, but I think we've got a fun topic to hit on today and always excited to talk hoops and this rookie class has a special place in my heart and I haven't had a chance to talk about The Rookie of the year race with anyone yet, so I'm looking forward to it. Yeah, for those that are wondering why it's been so long overdue and I mean, I'll take the blame for it. I've spent the past few months overseas in the time difference has been really, really crazy. So most of my episodes since November have been solo. I've probably done three episodes total where I had a guest on. So the solo episodes are tough. I mean, it's literally like 30 minutes of just talking to myself in an empty room on a computer and imagining an offense. I'm sorry, imagining an audience. I'm still a little jet lag that just got back from the states had a ridiculously long travel travel day, but I'm trying to get back to justice. So I'll take the blame for not having Sam more earlier and he is in the mountain time zone, which is even an extra hour makes it a lot different. So it's anywhere from a 7 to 8 hour time difference where I was at. So now that I'm back in the states, I plan on being here for a little while. I mean, it'll be easier for me to collaborate and have different guests on. All right, but let's get right off into it. Who is your rookie of the year? This is like a controversial topic. I did a show with chat for it, and we talked about The Rookie of the year. I said, it should be a split between Evan mobley and Scotty Barnes. And my ad mentions were getting torn up by. Detroit Pistons fans, and I mean, they gave me all these different statistics about what Kate was doing after the all star break. I mean, phenomenal stats. So then you had Jalen Greene, which I mean, it was probably a little too late for him to get in the race, but he finished strong, which I kind of take it with a grain of salt in a sense because I know like every year in March somebody, whether it's a rookie or somebody just has like these ridiculous numbers that you wonder like if they can carry that same momentum in. And that's saying that I don't think he can, but I mean, the numbers were pretty crazy. I think he had like 40 his last game or something like that. 41 is last gang. So I put myself out there. I said it should be a split. And I rewarded winning. Over the individual stats. Who is your choice for rookie of the year? Yeah, well, first I got to say, I don't think it mattered who you picked, all these fan bases are so passionate about their rookies. I think regardless of which way you went, you were going to get some feedback and your mentions there. But for me, so I had the same three guys. I had a different order, so I went Evan mobley, I'm going number one, and then K, I'm going to and then Scotty Barnes three. So again, at the same top three, but a little bit different order in my case for Evan mobley is kind of similar to yours for Scottie Barnes. I think he contributed more to winning than any other rookie this season. I do think it times we have a tendency or we can, however you want to say it, we can fall victim to this recency bias where mobley was hurt towards the end of the season and the Cavs fell off. They just weren't the same team down the stretch. And now, frankly, it looks like they might not even make the playoffs. But my thing is, if you look at this season, like if you were to just flip the cav season around and just say, instead of the weak finish to the season, which is what we remember.

"It's not the turnovers have to get better. He can throw it all over the place. He's a big league guard that can shoot and see the floor and he's young and humble. I'm still there. Still there. Yeah. No, he'd go 5 to ten in this year's draft. I think pretty easily. Pretty comfortably would go 5 to ten. The thing that I will say though is like San Antonio didn't get much of a discount, taking him when they did and developing him for a year and burning a year of his rookie scale deal. Right. They got him basically the value that he is. Like maybe just a little bit lower. Not much. A little bit better, but hindsight's always 2020. It was a calculated risk that they took. That was their guy at 12. Yeah. People thought they were crazy, but we've already said he's out played that. No, he has. Like, Josh primo has been really good. I'm joke and put my head in my hands whenever you bring up Kramer..

"Spins back. He catches you off balance. He sees the four as a passer. He's great there. It can make plays out of the high post, the three point shot has an adjusted like I thought it might. And defense, the numbers will tell you, he still gets a block of steel a game. He's better as a weak side kind of guy. But he can close out too hard, get beads, it's kind of slow to change ends. If you're an NBA Twitter darling, please mute this part. Why is he become this guy that everyone rallies around the rockets are missing him by not playing a more and being a, I don't even know, like beyond a rotational piece. Well, I think it's that rockets fans are sick of watching Christian wood like not care on defense. And just like look disappointed to be out there half the time, right? I think it's not today. I think that that probably plays a role. I also think that Houston fans realize their team is bad. And would prefer to just see the young guy getting minutes. Like, I do think that Houston fans go like a little bit overboard with him. I'm not like quite as high as they are on alper and Schengen future all star based off of the fact that he's as productive as he is on a per minute basis. Having said that, like, on a permanent basis, no center in the NBA is averaging Morse or only one center in the NBA is averaging more assists than offering to do this. Why? I said, don't do this. I said, don't do this. We're doing this. This is the problem. These jokic know he's not. He can start no question. He can start for sure, but he's like, you still need all the great pieces around him in order for him to be a effective start to win games. Yeah. Here's what I would say. Part of the reason that outburn Schengen can't play more minutes right now is like he files the fuck out of everyone on the court. You're translation. He's played in turkey. They don't calls in FIBA, so it's just he's adjusting. Well, like, here's another per 36 number for you. Oh, no center in the NBA is averaging more fouls per minute. Than out for inching gun. So like no disrespect to him, but he's still really figuring it out on that end. It is not been good. I know that the deflection numbers like I think he's like in the top like 20 into flexions in the NBA right now. Per game even, like while he's playing 20 minutes a night. And I think that like he's still in a block and people get excited. He's bad on defense. Like he can't stay with anyone in space. If they get him out on an island, it's over. He fouls the hell out of Africa. I mean, it's not good with him. On the defensive end. But they're a bad team. So why not just let them play through it? I think is where Houston thinks. Yeah, it could be an NBA star. That's fine. Let them play through it, but there's still there's still some warts. There's still some deficiencies to work out here. Yeah, no, I agree. I think his offensive skill level is really high. I think that the flashes that we have seen from him, their offense are on so much better when he's out on the court because ball movement because the other thing that he does a ton of, he's just constantly fucking moving..

"So I would very strongly, if they're going to go down the road of a rebuild, I would move him if I was them. But if they are just retooling and trying to do like a quick turnaround, obviously keep them and build around them and make it work. We'll take them in Boston. If you use little shooting, I'm sure you want to be able to take some bonus faults we got. You'll take them all. Okay. What other rookies do you want to talk about? Like my dear sweet boy herb Jones has been incredible. I love them. Like just best offensive the best offensive rookie outside of Evan mobley. I would say. I mean, I don't know if they played at 33rd game. He started 23 of 32 games. So it wasn't. It wasn't one of these COVID call up situations, which COVID stinks. Let's start with that. If there's a silver lining, it's a lot of these rookies and free agents we've got an opportunity and more opportunity, but he was starting anyway. He had 26 and 7 against Cleveland. He scored more than 20 points once during the 12 years he was at Alabama. He shooting 37% from three when you and I were like, Matt, you could only shoot. He's just more of a super sized to a player version that we saw in Tuscaloosa and now it's here. It's the NBA and he's 23 years old and maybe this is another guy that you us we have to take longer looks on prospects with translatability despite the age because I don't care that he's 23. We're talking about he's a starting guy in the NBA and they race about 23 and rape about him in the franchise. And then you look at his pick. He's picked 35th. Here's picks 35 to 38. Herb Jones, miles McBride, JT Thor, IO the sumo. Those are NBA starters. So like picks late in the draft also still matter. Like you gotta evaluate they're not throwaway picks and he was a good guy identified and he fits everything that they're trying to do there. Like him a lot. Yep, I like him a lot too. Both you and I had him as a first rounder, I think in the process. Go crazy. Yeah, late first, yeah. We really like them. We thought he made a ton of sense for a lot of teams. It's funny. Like, frankly, the team he's on in New Orleans. I don't know how much sense he makes for them long term because their most important player is Zion and for Zion to be at his utmost success level. Probably need to surround him with a lot of shooters. And while herb Jones is shooting 37% from three right now, that's going to be his swing scale in terms of does he stay as a long-term piece in New Orleans or does it all make sense for him? So operand Schengen, do you want to talk about him very quickly? He's been great as a conservative facilitator, crazed ball handler for a big, I don't know what you do with him defensively right now. I don't I'm so sick of seeing his per hundred possessions or 36 minutes stats. I don't want to I don't want to see him anymore. It's not real life. He's shown some really nice flashes too. He is great footwork like a ballerina feet in that he spins. He drives. He.

"It also, like he's, he does a lot of that stuff too though. Like he takes a lot of inefficient shots. He doesn't really pass the ball well. He's not a defender at all right now. But that's just as like no chance defensively because Kevin Porter is often their guy at the point of attack. Christian wood like his effort is abysmal half the time, like Albert and is out there for 20 minutes a night and shingen's really bad defensively as much as we like him. They don't really have a chance defensively right now. Jaylen green plays a role in that. Let's say. Yeah, man. You're burying me and just trying to get me to crawl out slowly. But I'm trying to be the best. So you can be honest. Person. Reversal. It's a great flashes. I want to give you the opportunity to talk positively about it. He's been up and down. He was a volume guy, lowish percentage shooter in high school. He was. He got better with USA basketball. I thought he got better with the GE night and especially better once the G league bubble was over. He has taken more threes than twos and it feels like the default for him is kind of one of those off balance leading threes. The flashes have been there. I mean, the game I watched, I think before the injury played the bulls. He ripped it off the rim and floated coast to coast, like buy 6 guys and just dumped. And that's the appeal of who he is as a player. I still believe in the self creation. I want the creation to lead to some easier cleaner looks for himself at times, which is kind of alluded to. He's been a lot better since he was out for a month. If we record this podcast two weeks ago, we'd say, yeah, I don't know, but you could see the growth. So maybe watch some film. Maybe he just talked about coaches, got in the gym and said, this is what we're going to do better. I talked to an NBA scout when prepping for this pod because I'm not in tuned and ingrained in the NBA stuff and just asked his take on a couple things. And what he did remind me of, which is good and kind of grounded me some is that sometimes these athletic wings take time. We talked up to Zach lavine. Zach lavine averaged ten points from gamers a rookie and Daenerys 20 points per game until his fourth year in the NBA. That same kind of trajectory goes for Brad belt. Took him 5 years to average 20 points per game. I'm not quitting on jaylen green. It's going to be ugly. He's going to take some lumps. It's not necessarily the best makeup roster wise for him right now with Kevin Porter and just it's not ideal for kind of where he needs to be. But we can't write the kid off yet after whatever 30, 35 games. So it's gonna be a slow burn and he could be a guy in three weeks. We say, hey, he's a lot better, or three years. We say, hey, he's got a lot better a year by year, just take a longer than maybe we anticipated. I did as like the plug and play. He was in the G league, so kind of already in the NBA for 20 games. He should be ready to go..

"Game tweeted at me text me and said, why street and I have you have two points or one point? I said, well, you had a couple shots rim out. He did. Like they were good looks. They just went in and out. Scottie would be like air ball short, way right. He doesn't follow through. He chases it. It just all seems so much more comfortable with him now. It was so robotic. His jumper was so robotic, mechanical, like, not fluid. And look like, even with Toronto, like, I don't think it's the most fluid looking thing in the world, like it's not like he's like getting in and out of like complex ball handling moves and pulling up from 30 feet or even from 12 feet, right? But the thing is that he's 6 foot 9 with a 7 foot two wingspan. That helps. And he doesn't need that, right? Like he doesn't need the crazy complex like shiftiness stuff. Yeah, I mean, Scotty Barnes, I would take Scottie Barnes at three in this draft pretty comfortably right now. And I had him, I think it's 6. So yeah, Toronto nailed it. Toronto due to phenomenal job, that's the, that's the biggest thing. And plus, like he's a good defender. I think that he is struggled a little bit more in space this year than what I thought he would. He looks a, I don't want to say slower. It just looks like his, looks like he's still learning what it takes to defend great players night and night out whenever he's forced to defend on an island against good guards when he gets matched up with them. Right. It's fine. I think he'll figure it out. I think he's gonna be a great defender. Maybe not quite like the all defense guy that we thought based off of his first year, but definitely like a super plus defender based off of everything I've seen so far. Yeah, totally. So with so far we started with guys, we've missed on. Can we get the one that we've actually hit on? Because I think cell phone we did an okay job saying like that was the guy here's the spot and we're here. So let's do this. So I think that I was fine on mobile. I think that you missed on mobile. I think you did a great job on Franz Wagner and I was wrong on Franz Wagner. So let's do that and let's close this loop, right? Great. We had some hits, some misses and now here's an actual hit that I may have gotten right with Franz. Yeah, let's let you talk about prawns because Franz is your sweet baby boy. He is, he is. He's probably the guy I'm happiest with on how high I had him, like you said. I had him 6. It was, do I wish I had come in and go down a few spots and him up one or two and Scotty Barnes? You know, I was gonna get it right. But there were for fraud, some scoring concerns out of Michigan. It was he's a great passer. He's an ultimate connector. He's a defensive beast at 6 foot ten, and he has this bad last game of the tournament where he's one for ten against UCLA, had a bad air ball when it mattered..

"That's beautiful. I'm trying to figure out, like, and by the way, these are not hung up. I literally have like bar stools like just sitting on their sitting on top of parsley. So I was like, okay, I need something in the background. So I no longer look like a serial killer. A little less terrorist interrogation demands. Yeah. As I am in my office slash as you look to say bathroom, tile in the wall. It's a good blend. We were dealing with like an echo problem earlier and I was like, yeah, it's because you're recording in a fucking bathroom, patty. What do you expect? Basically. But yeah, no, I'm trying to figure out, like what other posters do I go with here? Like is there a way for me to find some other movie things that really will work inside the room together? And maybe I'll be able to switch it up. I don't know. We'll see. We'll see what the move is. Whenever I really, truly explore the space of the studio here. Feel yourself out. You get some stuff leaning up there, so you're not tied to anything either. You can switch that out after you if you want to. Keep it moving. Oh my God, I'm a fucking dumbass. Okay. Let's go to rookies. I guess that I will just ask this question from the top. Who do you think has been the most impressive rookie during the 2021 22 NBA season? For me personally, I'm on Scottie Barnes, has been the most impressive. Just because he's done so much more than I anticipated. And as a larger snapshot of the whole thing, I was thinking about this earlier. The draft before, but prior to the season of the last cycle, we thought there were 5 or 6 guys, right? That were right there at the top. It could be in contention for the top picks. Some of the names changed. We thought maybe zyra Williams had a chance to be there. Maybe BJ Boston, maybe Jalen Johnson, but Scotty Barnes for me. Why Scottie bonton Franz von are kind of slid in there and still it's at least a 5 deep draft. With a lot of depth for contributing players too. But for Scottie Barnes, what he's done, especially offensively from a self creation standpoint, that has been the biggest standout for me to start. So in terms of guys that have tangibly altered what I thought their ceiling was coming into the draft. I would say Scotty Barnes stands out along with Franz Wagner is the two guys that have changed my opinion of the most honestly I think Franz is probably the guy that has changed my opinion of him more than anyone in this class and we'll talk about him momentarily. But if we're talking about just like pure, this is the best rookie in the class. It's evid mobile. I don't even think it's close. Right. You would say what your definition there was was different than sure. You know, like, who has been the most impactful of effective? I would imagine that you would say having mobile has been the most impactful effective rookie thus far during the NBA season, right? Without taking anything away from the other guys, we'll talk about the fair assessment. Yeah. I think that the thing that I keep coming back to personally on this is like, this calves team was a fucking disaster for all of the years that LeBron was gone and they made some smart decisions like taking Darius Garland acquiring Jared Allen very clearly his worked out and has been proven to be the correct call from them..

"You were presented by the athletic. Today on this show, Matt petty is in the building penny. What up Ben? How are you doing? Have you survived the and I know your calendar is a little different than here, but Sunday was like the ultimate Sunday scaries day after the holiday and after the new year, so Monday was a big back to work day for a lot of people. I don't know if that transcends oceans and continents, but I'm back in the swing of things. I hope you are too. I don't think you ever swear anything, but maybe more so than usual. So Laura and I went down to the beach on New Year's Eve and then got back and we were in bed by 1206. Like I literally woke up to a text message from good friend of the program, Danny larue at 1214. And I had no idea. There's a new year. Yeah, so like what can you do? And then I worked the following Sunday. I took New Year's Day off. I watched three movies and then work the following Sunday. So yeah, no, the Monday the Monday disaster that everyone else had. I don't know. It wasn't for me. It was strange here because somehow there was still a holiday that I didn't know about, it was observed for a lot of people, so there wasn't a lot of traffic. So it wasn't. It wasn't a full experience, which was nice. Yeah, there was also a Monday holiday observed here too. And we went over to Laura's cousin's house to hang out for a while. And then we were just like, you know, yeah, I guess I guess we have to go back to work. And then there were no. Tomorrow's a public holiday. Yeah, great. So today on the show, we are going to talk about rookies in the NBA this year. We're going to talk about Evan mobile, we're going to talk about Scotty Barnes, Matt's best friend, Franz Wagner. We're going to talk about all of these great players that have really stood out. I think they're realistically like 7 or 8 guys that I've been pretty impressed with over the course of the entirety of The Rookie season so far, which is a pretty big number for a rookie class to be honest. Then we are going to go into the mailbag section, then we're going to do prospects of the week as always, so it'll be a nice, fun, packed show, painting and finally got artwork behind me. What is that? I didn't want to call you out on it, but it is different. It kind of ties the podcast and the room together. So behind my right shoulder, I've got a it's like a bunch of Wes Anderson art from his movies. So I think the top one is royal tenant bombs, then life aquatic, then moonrise kingdom, then Grand Budapest, I think is the bottom. And then the one over my left shoulder is the third man, which is like the greatest movie of all time. It's Carol Reid. It's from 1949. It has Orson Welles. It's like the great reveal like one of the all time great reveals in movie history. Tell me you're Sam to see me without telling me to sample..

"Has really mobile hips number one and he can react to ball handlers in a way that's really impressive. I sent you a clip of him from their game against Charlotte where miles bridges and you can go on like these video sites and I'll try to post a clip of him like elite ball handlers attacking him. Like, in open space on an island like Devin Booker, Damian Lillard, miles bridges was trying to attack him downhill and you could just see like miles is a super athlete. And Evan was like reacting and turning in real time really quickly and not getting blown by, which is really impressive for a guy his size. I think he just has this ability to play conservatively and not get out of position. You know what I mean? You'll see some of these really athletic guys just jump to the moon and get out of position, like nerlens, Mitchell Robinson. He's very advanced on that front. Yeah, it's funny you mentioned that talking about comparing an athletically. And I always look at it like a lot of young guys. They come in the league and they can get to like a hundred, but sometimes it's like they're going fast, but they don't know where they're going. Mobile, it's just like he's cruising on 80 the whole time. I think the best line for that, Charles Barkley always says these young guys come on the league and they think, oh wow, I can jump over buildings. When they become good is, when they realize, oh, actually, I can just take the elevator to the top floor. I don't have to jump all the way. Mobile already does that. He's already got that ability to stop and change speeds. He's such a smooth player. And that's what to me when I first watched him in college. I love the most about him. I love watching smooth players, like your team max, your KDs. It's like, they don't have to always go to 95 because they're going 70 constantly. And so I really need to do. And mobile already has that in his game. And the number that's crazy is I think it's something like his foul rate and his block crater like identical, which never, ever, ever happens. Usually it's like Jaron Jackson junior, where he blocks a ton of shots, and he has a ton of fouls, and he has to learn how to block without fouling. Mobile already has that. Yeah, I think that that point you made is a really, really good one. And what you're talking about with smoothness, I think, is like, you see like latency, I call it info lag, sometimes with big guys where they aren't understanding what's happening. And you see them get out of position. I would always joke about Nick Richards who I root for at Kentucky. He was a guy who there you go, there's your first one. But he's just an example of somebody who would be trying to process the game and you saw this a little bit with 8 and people would be like, oh wait and slow, ate this. He's that. And if you really pay attention, you'd be like, no, he's thinking. He's just, but Matt efficiency and master you're kind of go hand in hand, I think when you're watching NBA players, like when you watch Luke come into the league offensively, he was very smooth, because he was processing the game in real time. He wasn't confused, he never looked overwhelmed. Mobly right now is second in the NBA and contesting two point shots. He's really raised Cleveland's defensive floor. He's been really impressed on that front. We could talk about him to the cows come home on that side of the ball. One thing I think worth pointing out to as you talked about that, and I remember thinking coming into the season, I wasn't sure how the mobley Allen thing would work and because they're both not really floor spacing bigs. And that's where it's really well. I think primarily because mobly is so smart. Some of the big the big passes he makes are absolutely unbelievable. This guy is, there was a pass against the bucks you sent me, where he's dribbling it on his left hand and he left hand passes it to Allen in the lane. And it's like, this is insane. This is not something a 20 year old should ever be doing. At 7 feet tall. And on that front, he is ahead of Anthony Davis. I think as a potential, like his upside, there's a word, take a drink. I will say that one a lot. His upside as a creator, I think, is higher than Davis's. I think Davis is more of like a score on his own island. Now, Davis can't pass. I just think that mobley has a lot of potential on that front. And little detail here, the person that he attacked with his left hand and made that one handed left hand pass was drew Holliday. This guy is a big with a 7 four wingspan. I think he can kind of see how long his arms are sometimes on like in the way he shoots. He's got sort of an awkward load up, follow through. But he offensively he's been pretty impressive among rookies he's third in scoring second and total rebounds, but he's first in blocks. I think you're a 100% right about the Jared Allen Evan mobley thing. I think Lowry's interesting too. Their lineups are interesting. But you said you had a nickname for Jared Allen and Eva mobile. What was that? The thin towers..

"They will probably make the playoffs based on that and that's pretty good. I don't know. It's just like they're really fun team to watch this season. And every game you kind of does something new, which is always like the cool thing about rookies. We don't really dwell on this too much, but you're absolutely right about the Tampa thing. Like the fact that that team was just like playing in Florida is kind of unremarked upon. I think in terms of like recent NBA history. And the fact that a city didn't have their team in town, even if they wouldn't have been able to attend games in person. I mean, there's something to be said about that. I'm so happy for Toronto Raptors fans that they get a guy like after losing Lowry after losing a soul after losing after losing Kawhi, obviously, for them to have a guy who they can at least be like, this dude is ours for like four to 7 years is really cool. Do you think he's going to still will the fit with him and OG and now siakam coming back? We're like, how do you see that working out? There's kind of like two different directions that could go. It's a lot. I mean, I was trying to look at if it kind of compared to the cav situation, just like with them playing like Alan mobley marketing at the same time having a Coro and stuff. Just a bunch of defenders on the floor. And for some reason, it doesn't, the calves are strangely not so they're not like they're getting killed in the offensive boards and they're not really blocking any shots, which is weird, I guess, for what the person really is contesting a lot of stuff. But yeah, I know what you mean. Yeah. Yeah. The raptor though, I mean, they are kind of actually what you would imagine with a team full of guys that have like 7 foot wingspans. Yeah, so actually Dan Dan divine wrote a piece about this at the ringer today. So he talked about they have, I mean, they have multiple guys that can just defend, and they I think they're leading the league and points off turnovers. And I think that type of thing is likely to continue because I think what we found in the final is just that size compounds. Watching the books in the finals just like with the amount of size that they have around Yanis, who is also like, he might be range player in the NBA, probably like he's like the he's like the positional ideal of all of these guys that the raptors have drafted over the last few years. Like watching him, I think it kind of made me realize that if there ever is going to be an antidote to the patient space revolution it's going to be a team that kind of looks like that. Interesting. And I think that's kind of what the raptors have built here. When they drafted Scottie, a lot of rappers fans were upset because well, first of all, everybody thought that Jalen selects should have been a number of member four pick. I think they obviously surprised a lot of people by taking Lowry with this guy who just went to the finals and was the best player in the final four. Yeah. Well, intuitively, it made a lot of sense because they need that guy. They still need that guy, right? They don't have a lot of score thing. They don't have a lot of playmaking. OG, I don't know. They live and die with oge on Adobe. And that's just as much progress as he's made. Just not a sentence, you really want to be saying it. But you know what? Would you kind of like a different variation on what you're talking about with guys like GP two? Where it's like, oh, like when this role player gets a chance to be the featured star on the team. Yeah, maybe the maybe the raptors aren't like what they were three seasons ago or something. But look at what he's doing with this opportunity. Yeah, I think the difference with him is probably just like the ability to actually create some shots. These kind of developing more into a traditional perimeter player. But he does have that. And like, yeah, that is what allowed him to stay on the floor in the early seasons. When he couldn't handle the ball and he couldn't step back and shoot and everything too. It was just more, yeah, because the raptors were a lesser version of a team. That couldn't really defend. Right. Yeah. Like they weren't championship level, but they needed to counterbalance and have a guy like him be able to play. That's kind of how a lot of these guys have gotten on the floor, actually. Yeah, that's true. I mean, the theme of what we're kind of talking about with OG with mobly and Barnes. And it has been such a delightful rookie class. I love watching giddy. I like watching Jalen green, I enjoyed watching cade versus Jalen last night on Wednesday. Yeah. It's the thing that I like though is we're appreciating guys for all these different things that they can do beyond scoring or besides court. Like Scotty Barnes Swiss Army knife ishness is great. Moley's defense is incredible. Giddy does a lot of like hockey assist stuff that I really like watching. It's just really cool to see these different elements of basketball get highlighted earlier, part of the season as the like he's in his bag stuff has been sort of tamped down a little bit. And even if he's in his bag and this kind of leads me to my next one that I want to talk about, there's a tons of different ways to score. And if you want to see every single way you can score a basketball, watch Chicago Bulls. So sir and I talked a little bit about Chicago earlier. I think we were getting into the beginning of this season. And I think we had some discussions about whether or not Chicago was a major media market or not. I think they got misinterpreted as not liking the bulls. But I have to say that they are by far one of my favorite things to watch these opening 15 games. The combination of Levine Derozan Lonzo and Caruso whether on the floor together, closing or not, has been really awesome to watch. They've been kind of like this sneaky positionless basketball team. They somehow are like holding their own on defense. I think they are 6th the 6 defensive rating team, 6 offensive rating team, maybe four net rating team right now. Two guys in the top ten of scoring with Levine and Derozan. Lonzo looks like he's not going to have a career year. Caruso is exactly what was on the package when you bought it. You know, it's just like toughness, extra passes, a lot of grit, a lot of going, getting after loose ball bullshit that the Lakers could really probably use. And the thing I love about the bulls experience right now is this guys are killers in the fourth quarter. They have like the best fourth quarter scoring margin right now. They did it to Boston. They did it last night to Dallas. Essentially, when you lose that lead to them in the fourth quarter, they basically walk away with the game. Yeah, there are two competent offensively to lose. When you have a lead on them, or when they have a lead on you. Yeah, one of the responses that we got to the podcast we recorded, just kind of like early season preseason overreactions was somebody saying that we were underwriting the bulls in a podcast in which I said that they were going to be a top four seed. I think it was because I reiterated that 5 38 had them ranked tenth in the Eastern Conference. I was wrong though because they are the sick. The second scene in the east right now is the wizard's the first. She was right. She was right. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, everything has gone right..

"Speaking of that wizards Cavs game, here's my second one. And we haven't done this yet so I'm excited to do it. It's a Rite of passage on the rail right now, which is two or more podcast hosts sound like they are on DMT talking about Evan mobley. We haven't really had the evident conversation. He's my favorite basketball player to watch right now. You know, when Kyle Mann went on bill's pod and they were throwing around names like KG and akeem, it's a lot, you know what I mean? You can't get much higher than that. I know that there's a lot more to come. But I can't I can't get over how much I love watching this guy play basketball. He basically is like a complete basketball player 15 games into his career. Ever since Sexton went down his usage of spiking. Chris figure had a good piece in Cleveland dot com just talking about what he's doing right now. I'll just go through briefly just to say he is, well, first of all, it's worth mentioning that the cabs in general, especially when they're featuring mobly. They are currently fourth and assist percentage, 8th in total passes and 25th in isos. So it's a team that shares the ball. It's a team that's moving the ball through mobile, especially of these last couple of games. Already on defense, you guys know the drill. I can't remember who they were playing, but there was a play where I was like, I looked up and mobley backpedaled, the entire length of the court in transition to get back on defense got to the paint, took him three strides to do that. And then exploded out to the three point arc to disrupt a three point shot. Like I've never seen defenders like do stuff like that. We've been talking for like ten years about unicorns. I finally have seen one. In the wild, it's really, really, really powerful. It really is. Evan mobley is like he's like what we think bulbul could be, you know? Like we're all. Towns was gonna be. Yeah, I'm projecting when I say we, I'm maybe I mean, there are probably a couple of people that are just trying to manifest a real bulbul career just because of how fun it would look. But yeah, he's probably like just one of the single most fun players to watch in the NBA right now. He's like, it's so it's almost like he's so so skinny too, right? It's like watching a skeleton kind of like traverse a court, and then also like, oh, by the way, I'm actually no, I'm strong enough to block this shot. Yeah, it's a lot of fun. And then the cabs to they have like a weird thing going, where they're playing like a lot of big players at the same time. And it's kind of working, but we'll kind of see if it does, but yeah, I don't know. And he's hitting like every shot too. Yeah, it's elbow jumpers. It's three pointers. It's finishes, rim running. It's everything. He can go off the dribble. He can finish on a pick and roll. He has a great two man game with Rubio, a pretty good two man game with Garland. I love how he plays with Jared Allen. It's just every night. I want Cleveland to keep winning so that his performances aren't happening in a vacuum. You know what I mean? Yeah. Like sometimes with rookies, you're like, oh, but they're only going to win like 28 games, but it's still cool to watch this guy cook. I want him to have Cleveland as a playoff contender. It's like that's what I think the league needs it mobley is just such an incredible, incredible player. I hope more and more people get to watch him. I wish they could, I wish they could flex Cleveland into all the New Orleans pelicans that who would have thought who would have thought that they were the real action would be in Cleveland. It's kind of like an increasing thing that's happening too in the league where all of these rookies that come in are just so smart. So my second, my second affirmation is just that Scottie Barnes never hits a rookie wall. That's right. Yeah, that's all I want. That's all I want for Scottie Barnes for the raptors man. I feel like he's like this gift. He's like this GIF that came to them for having to spend this whole season in sample, which they clearly hated. And it just, I mean, Matt, I don't know if this is just like overly dramatic on their part. But I remember hearing Maasai say that he thought it set the franchise back by like 5 years or something. Now he didn't say that he said that a while ago, I think he hadn't seen Scotty Barnes in a raptors uniform at that point, because this is kind of like what you dream of happening. If you're middling team like the raptors, it's almost like what happened to the spurs when David Robinson got hurt and they got to draft him Duncan, not to say that Scottie Barnes has been Duncan by any means. But just being able to get a player that's this talented, just off of like a one season sort of like accidental, not even tank, but we tried. It was just like the circumstances didn't really allow us to win. And it's like, you know, the first year of the new lottery rule so that, you know, they can step up to four. I mean, it's great for them, and he is just so fun to watch. He's incredible. Yeah. He's like, he's always smiling. He's like, I think he's like the single happiest person that I see on TV ever. Especially with the shows that you mentioned being on. Yeah, it's so much fun to watch him. And he's like, he's bigger than OG on an ovi. Which is honestly just a sentence that you should never be able to say about a rookie wing ever. And they just run with him, you know, like they just defend and run..

"Surprised how generous I'm feeling where I'm just like, I mean, not even generous, 'cause the warriors pre KD to me were just like as good as basketball can be played. But watching those guys freak out over GP two and Wiggins dunks and doing like synchronized swimming routines on the sideline like falling out of their chairs on the bench and the crowds going nuts. It's really cool to see. I've never seen Andrea Dole smile this much in the regular season. He seems incredibly happy to be. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and I'm happy to watch them, you know? Take me back. You know, I feel like that's always been my consistent position with the warriors. Generally speaking the warriors have had, like, there's been a little bit of who they who they beat and yet stuff about the words. Do you think that this is more a product of a long home stand with some less than great opposition or do you think that this team is for real for real? I actually, I picked the warriors to win the west. So I kind of figured they'd be for real for real no matter what. But yeah, I think that's like, you know, the schedule has been pretty soft. And I think the rubber will hit the road at some point because curry can't keep playing like he can, but he can't, you know, not like all the time. I wouldn't, when draymond tweeted, I think they said thigh contusion, but I thought it might be the DN. I was like, ah, shit. Yeah, yeah, it kind of felt like, oh, okay, all right, we're gonna kind of get into dark times a little bit more here. But I do think it'll be way easier than last season. When injuries hit them last season they just weren't as deep. But I think they have a couple more guys. I can step up. They have a little bit more youth. So I think that I think they'll be fine. I think the reason I picked them to win the championship is just that of all the things that could break right for a team. They feel like the team that would have the most amount of things break, right? I know it sounds like it's almost like a little bit mystical, but it's also just kind of rooted in this is a very competent team. When they are together, they've been happy to be together. They're really good problem solvers. I think out of all of every team kind of has like a series of questions going into a season about like, okay, well, you know, with the worries, it's like, what are we going to get out of the rookies out of wiseman? Was clay going to be healthy? There's variables you can't control, but then there's also a lot of stuff that you can. And they just tend to trust these guys to be able to figure out most of the stuff that they seem like they just picked right this year. They picked right guys that they added. They picked right like adding Kenny Atkinson to the coaching staff. Everything about it just seems to have slid right. Auto brothers. Yeah, and there's talk that clay could be back at Christmas and they still haven't gotten wiseman back. They haven't really gotten a ton out of kimino or moody yet. So it's like, it's really fascinating. I think also look, these kinds of opens to the season to go ten one. It buys you a lot of breathing room. Whereas like a team like the Lakers does have to kind of scratch and claw now. You know, a little bit. They don't want to be below 6th. And the plan does create a little bit of regular season tension I think in that way. Yeah, and also, I mean, it kind of it kind of also gives all the younger guys on the team, all of the newer editions and the people that weren't part of the championship run, just like a sense of, oh, okay, this is actually serious. We went ten and one to start the season. Just having that beginning to give him like, okay, now the perspective on this season is like, we can actually fight for a championship. I think that just changes individually, like the way that people just behave in a season. And I think if you extrapolate that onto the warriors, guys, I think a player Andrew Wiggins is much more likely to go and have a career year now if not to say that he is, like, the wolves game was kind of like one of his first good games. After which, by the way, curry was like, curry was low key. Trying to motivate him through the press it felt like. Did you see that? Yeah. You know, he said that he's gonna text Wiggins the dunk that he had over cat before every game because that's the type of Andrew Wiggins. He wants to see and he was just talking about, it's nice to get a preview of what he can look like when he's when he's being this aggressive, which I don't want to say it was backhanded, but it felt a little bit more like kind of pushing him to be like, come on dude. Just now that you're playing the best. Yeah, it's full of guys with the talent to score 35 points a night. But they just don't do it for whatever reason. It's like Malik monk can do what he did last night. Andrew Wiggins can do what he did on Wednesday night. It's just there's the thing that makes you a star is being able to do it three to four times a week. Yeah, Kyle Kuzma, the other day, against the Cavs, he said the Cavs fans motivated him. I think they said something along the lines of if you like how Kuzma is like nobody without LA or something. Nobody without LeBron, and he was basically just like right back at you. And then he was just like, you know, like that motivated me and it was just funny 'cause it was like, man, if you really like this totally goes against the spirit of this podcast, which is just we're just trying to speak positive things into existence, but wigans and Kyle Kuzma both have. They have plenty of doubters. If they want to dig into the well and just do this, all season? Yeah. Like they totally could. Just get the chip on the shoulder going. Yeah, like bring back being motivated by slides. We're all trying to be a little too balanced.

"This is not really going to be effective if we don't actually implement it. This is actually very important for you to take a stand record. The Lakers are the team encapsulation of the well actually guy on Twitter. Yeah. But yeah, it's just a matter of actually you and Sean talked about this last week on the watch pod about Succession. There's a lot of laws that exist. And only the ones that actually, you know, are used in practice matter. So it's like a good moment for the Lakers to put on some pressure. So the Lakers, the Lakers are actually my number one early season trend that I don't want to see go away. It's my the thing I want to just keep going throughout the season. I know this isn't good for Lakers fans. But right now, successions are like you mentioned. Narcos, Mexico, back for the season finale, Yellowstone's back. I got all my TV is on. But the number one show on television right now is Lakers fourth quarters. It is the full Tapestry of human emotion is on display during Lakers fourth quarters. I never wanted to stop. Can I just run through some of this stuff real quick for you? Let's do it. Cardiac Lakers just never get hard medication, guys. As of Thursday afternoon, the Lakers average margin was victory lost like their games are coming down to about less than a point. They barely be Memphis, they go to OT against San Antonio for a win. They collapse twice in the fourth to OKC. They beat Houston by a bucket and their last two games against the hornets and the heat at home have been decided by three points each both of which went to OT. Last night, or the recording this on Thursday so Wednesday night's game against the heat was fucking curb your enthusiasm. It was so good. It was 5 second calls, Russ he checks. Malik monks going nuts. Guys are throwing the ball out of bounds. Guys are colliding into people. Anthony Davis can't get a post up, but winds up getting like 14 rebounds in the last 5 minutes it seemed like everything is happening. They're beatable on every night. They can also beat anyone. You know, I don't know how long LeBron is gonna go out and be out there was the rumor that his abdominal injury might be like a month or something, I just want this to continue for as long as possible because it honestly feels like March Madness every night. And even when they win, I don't even feel like they feel good about it because they almost lost all the time. Yeah, there's just tenor with every Lakers game that's just like, well, we still need to be better than this. It's good that they see that. The last thing is that he was really funny because it was a game that the Lakers kind of should have controlled pretty much the moment that Jimmy Butler sprained his ankle. And there were a lot of reasons for the heat to lose. They just weren't really shooting well all game. They were creating a ton of open threes. It took like a pretty bad Tyler hero night, which we don't really see as much of anymore. And the sprained ankle, it took like bam just having like a really awkward force. And the heat were just kind of like here, take this game, take this game. Let me let us let us miss about Denver. It took it was funny to watch the Lakers come back because it was like, guys, this should have happened a while ago, but you just have like, you know, it's like it's just like the late Russell Westbrook experience. Yeah. And then, you know, I know that they have they're missing none. They're missing LeBron. They're missing ariza. They're missing Austin Reeves. I think there's a couple of other guys hurt. They played like 8 or 9 guys against the heat. But out of the chaos a hero will rise every night, it seems like it's either Russ, triple double, but almost quadruple double with turnovers. It's last night Malik monk, apparently he had to have LeBron explain who Vinnie Johnson was dim, which really touches my heart. Malik monk island is a place that I've bought land but have yet to develop because the architectural plans keep getting rejected by the city planning commission. But I'm really excited to build there. I've lived there for quite a while. He's exactly who I want to see going off in Lakers games early in the season. I know that later in the year it's going to probably get all figured out and it'll be AD and LeBron and Russ and rondo and mellow or something. And it'll be like, yeah, you guys are kicking ass, but I don't know. While it's crazy chaotic like this, I'm really, really, really enjoying the leakers experience. Yeah, it's honestly, it's a really good watch just between like, you know, you get like Frank Vogel just really frustrated on the bench and then you get also Anthony Davis, just man, there are games when you just don't know what you're there plays you just don't know what you're going to get with him. He's just not really, I feel like Lakers fans are pretty frustrated with him. He's forgotten how to shoot threes. And he still likes taking them, though. Yeah, oh, love's taking them. Love taking the mid range jumpers and yeah, it's just like you just don't really know what you're going to get with him. There's moments like last night where bam kinda got the best of him. And just like everything, everything around the Lakers is always just a little bit more interesting. And then you bring in somebody like Russell Westbrook, who is always just been so polarizing. You never know what you're gonna get. It just creates a really unpredictable experience. So it doesn't like there's nothing wrong going on in LA, you know? That's kind of the strange thing with all of this. This is all very much exactly what we expected. You know like Westbrook being able to win them some games with LeBron has actually born itself out. There are times that it does work out. But it is the Westbrook experience. So it means that there's many times that it might get to, you know, they might win the next two games. It might be 5 and three, but there's gonna be there's always going to be a regression. In the past in the more recent years, like the last couple of years of the AD LeBron experience, there was a feeling of inevitability. So even if they're down 7 down 7 down 7, you're just like, they're going to flip the switch AD is going to go to the 5 LeBron key end. This is over. You know, like that's. But with Westbrook, it's like, hey, maybe this whole place will turn into a flea market. Like, who knows?.

He struggled sometimes. Like i think he thinks the ball has Dislike really great. feeling both ends. And he's also super long makes him able to like really enact is impact both on the ball off the ball. I'm gonna think you'll shoot so like the ultimate sort of thing he's like you have sort of Like off all wing. Who's you know kind of like a trend junior role But he's a better defender. Both on the ball mean this is it's under the junior had like a really good playoff series and this guy was like before six pack. But like i'm saying it theory while super high on him Like what his feeling would be to me is like nike injuring a role where he sort of connecting wing who can make open shots Less issued a gary trent. Obviously but it's still And then uses his length. It'd be like a really good defender both on and off the ball And also adds a certain dimension of quote unquote point guard skills as like a passer specifically a pathway is not that great as a handler Gonna and he's not gonna generate on rim pressure is not going to really you know create anything to the bounds. I wouldn't want him running pick and rolls but is very good. At like attacking second-set actions was super super smart passing like the passing is is the best quality by far And then adding the defense and then the shooting productions what makes me like him a lot but <hes> on the raptors clearly who prioritize the same sort of things. I do in in players He's a great fit because he just another one of those guys like a plug played six five super long wing Who can like fit like amorphous. Lineups that are just a bunch of like kind of multifaceted similar sized versatile players You put into it so it makes me really sad about england. The raptors obviously I was on the misstep ian like live. The green room like live show. I tuned in. Like i was with some friends for the most part of the draft but then got the forty fifth pick tune. Dan kessler at forty four round. Two days it was funny Talked about him for a little bit like picks later Johnson goes the raptors. And i was like i was losing it so it was super fun but yeah i do like the The fifth beyond just like the general bit. I have going right now like meeting obsessed with the raptors because they took two is going home guys in the same draft I would i would drag people to the stream of pd. Because i think we did really good job breaking down like by sauce. Monroe looks like and why. I think a lot of people agree on draft twitter like the merits of dj by super much higher than with that rule could look like and how that's uniquely helpful. Which is why. I had him so high. Let me do a good job breaking down the stream while definitely linked onto that below. I think i would add to my favorite part of deejays like even though he's not an awesome ball handler like he's still pretty good but his paces really fun like he's kind of like you know if you're taking like all pasting from last year like marcus Point guard and you have david johnson the to guard because he was like so good at attacking off the catch but like he's not Like the complete opposite about control like you so good at just like kind of deal. Finding his way choosing his where he's going and You know making passes out of there just never really feels annoyed by like being crowd or anything out. Yeah i i love david yazbek. I'm excited for this rapper. Seen we had on a lot of great things We did not get delano band. That's fine he can pass. And he's long. He does a lot of things. Blake murphy and eric koreans. That are really good. Pie talked about a lot that you guys should listen to as well.

"Like i wouldn't say over when obviously but like you could legitimately make a case is like the second best player who's come out of that that one duke draft last. When he was trapped in trevan wall went Was undrafted but still. Like i think he had probably the lowest expectation he has like had really good progress but i agree like sixteen point. Seven million dollars is a lot for trent. It's just an interesting shooting to yeah. It's tough i think. Part of it is like the dame gravity for sure and sort of the. The halsey plugged for that portland. Playoff team was really important. Like he was Pretty good for. I mean he was definitely open them. I was gonna say previous pregnant for them. Defensively despite like some sort of need to have some over hyped happening with like an actress off ball defense is really bad for him is not good at all. Yeah so but it was very important to happen. Because they've played next to cj dame who couldn't guard like the she couldn't keep anybody in front of them and he was one of the few players who like at least sort of did Which was important to them like that helped. But we sort of lay game situations for them but it is It is it's interesting sort of this. Not get super meta Goes like the philosophy like meta like what does this mean for grander basketball But gary trend junior like a lot of his stock. It felt like it. It's sort of from a really hot shooting play offs. I have his numbers from last year. But a lot of those shots were like Certainly generated by gravity. But they're also hughes making shots. That are probably pretty loud in general quality metro as a lot of one and two symbols like one dribble pull ups and even catches your child through pump and job. Shoot over guys like those. Aren't sean trende. Junior shooting long-term So a lot of the values mis attributed like really sort of outlier good playoffs and like he's kind of writing at high still. But i hope that from for my raptors sake your routers have did i. I do want to take a couple more minutes and wax poetic. A little bit about david johnson. Because i know There were people were high david johnson and then there were there was henry who had david johnson as a borderline lottery guy I loved it. Like i thought i mean getting him that low like i fought us definitely first round talent like getting him that low was tremendous. I think he's on a two way. I can't remember off the top of my head right now. Either got the two-way or It's not. I mean it's Because he got. I mean he was drafted but I can't remember what it is that my head but regardless. I'm very excited for him. Like i think there's a lot to look out within that makes sense for this raptors team. Because like i think coming into this draft by thing with them was like they need players who can dribble pass and shoot because they only like they have a very big conglomeration of guys who can dribble and pass and a lot of guys who could shoot but like there. Just wasn't a intersection of any of those for anybody outside of pascal. Kyle sometimes Like fred can. We can dribble passenger boy. He's not really getting to the rim. You know there's a big difference there. So what like i you know. We've never actually talked about it. Why what makes you so high david johnson. Like why are you so into him. Especially as a fit for the raptors. Yeah i think I've i've probably just like direct people to the pd That's like the most thorough breakdown..

"As like a method of offense So that is sort of one issue. That's fairly concerning. I mean. I think that if you're going to submit likeness idea that you're going gonna have all these winnings in the floor and you're gonna be valuing on this sort of insular skills like clearly excellent. I believe in but a lot of that. Belief has hedged on the idea that like a lot of advantages can schemes. Don't have to be born out of stagnation with a player who still gives him offensively that they just demands by their handler. Burster shooting or whatever it is So yeah a lot of it you know the roster is not gonna look good from advantage creation standpoint. All the jokes are like you know the raptors are going to win games like twenty two seventeen next year And those are make the roster. But i think i i don't know if nurses gotta do it Maybe he is. I haven't paid much attention like his specific off into coaching style There's a lot of ways to like. Get guys downhill in situations. That aren't like isolation's or pick and rolls getting downhills like ultimately how ukraine -tations that's kind of the advantage. Were talking about so in that sense. I think there is possibilities there. I don't know if they're going to be tapped into I do agree that like. There's no but on the roster. That's like an engine the sense that you can kinda tossing the ball and thanks get cold and let them go and create tilt. That's not going to happen. gonna require a lot more of creation via off all actions cutting spacing Sort of rattled buzzwords but like methods of lane creation. That isn't a hastily breaking someone with the handle whether it's be off the hbo's Sort of multi decision actions. Where you know. You guys like scotty or pascal superstar with the ball in their hands sort of like judging defender movements and then picking the best option rather be give the gonna deitch turned the corner or stuff like that. That's where you're going to create advantages not gonna be through classic like you know high pick and roll a spread offense see so much in the nba But never was going to be like. I don't think that's like it's a fair concern. When looking at the roster like said but i don't think that's like part of the plan you know it's not like there's like banning of hoping someone figures out able to period managers. I think hopefully as i would do it. Part of the plan is to help lead us. Problems with sort of more scheme focused Changes rather than like personnel changes. Yeah no this is a great point. And i like i would love to see like i again you know. I think we both try shy away from like i view himalayas..
