Greatest career highlight was against the dallas mavericks in the nba finals. We can all agree with that. That's not his greatest great. How is his running the nba finals against the dallas mavericks. He the boy that that were good but his greatest run was the finals against the dallas. Mavericks anything go back and watch. Those finals is very simple. Couldn't shoot during the finals. All they had to do with the spurs with the mavericks for whatever reason in their coach refused to do it he kept driving to the lane over and over and over and he had a good finals. Run but If you take that out of his resume take that run out of his resume. He's a good player but we talked about him. Some people say he's a great shooting guard of all time he is not.

Your favorite sports moment was when simone manual won a gold medal in the one hundred meter freestyle in two thousand sixteen summer olympics. You go into detail about that. What what makes that your favorite moment in sports. I think this is the fact that i grew up dominantly competing in swimming and only envisioning my being in the olympics. Obviously that didn't end up happening. So things somebody alike the moment in she represented then what she embodies and actually being able to wangle and funny story and she actually tied still somebody else wants gold along with her. And we'll go from australia but she was so humble about it The australia was really respectful about it as well like she. Kind of gives them on her her moment so it was awesome so yes. She's somebody that. I definitely admire very very interesting. Go ahead and tell our listeners where they can find you how they can connect you to you. Also as well though making. Follow me on instagram. I go by. He'll one hardwood Same thing on youtube channel is called. he'll on hardwood. I don't have a facebook twitter. I'm not really active on it. I think they have like five followers. Think ten they're very good all right so what to do. All our guest on our show is play a little game called truth or dare you channel sports podcast presents for. Don't guy doing things scandalous. Don't get scared or anything like that is going to be very very simple. I wanna say truth or dare say you prefer and down gonna be like. Is it true that such and such is the greatest player to ever play the game and ain't gonna be ignored and you're going to explanation if i dare dare you to say something like. Nah i'd rather eat a cockroach or something like that. Something crazy okay so for. I should have first question tutor to their their chris christie of doing it. Go ahead man saying that. You do a lot of interviews for the rio grande valley. Vipers can you tell me. I dare you to tell me so. I got two days actually but they weren't. They worked together. So i i dare you to tell me. Who's the best player on the team. And then secondly dairy tell me. Who is the best interviewer on the team. I interviewees right way saying they were as far as best layer goes. Currently our our roster isn't active. But if i had to pick up players since i've been here i would have to say michael frazier. He was somebody that continues to be somebody who has a drive on unlike any other that i've seen like you think about the mambo mentality like this layer literally has a win win. They won the championship that year with him he was. I'm not mistaken. Giving the most improved player of the year award as well but he like literally use it listen to his story like she has gone through hell and that and you never know that. He's one of those type of people who was very mild mannered. What he's out on the core like he becomes like this So he's somebody that. I definitely admire As far as best interviewer you're referring to who's like well-spoken. I'm assuming that's for you to decide context. Yeah whatever whatever comes to mind like who's the most well-spoken entertaining who i would probably say Gary payton the second. I would probably say him. Yeah he he's somebody who were like about him is he. Gives a lot of insight. He talks almost like it's like i'm talking to like an eight year. Old man like he been alive for so long but he still so yet still in his twenty wealth. he's really down to earth. You would think because his dad is kind of like you know the history that he has with his last name that he would kind of get ill you or hina. Walk around with his pompous attitude. But he's not like that at all he so chill so down to earth like i've seen kids literally like run up to him and he will take the time to light. Acknowledge those kids and so or even with me. When i'm having an interview with him like he will look you dead in. I so the point where i feel like damn ice twitching because you giving me some Eye on the out thank him. So he's very mature for his age. Basically what you're saying. Yeah very mature for his age. Very well-spoken can hold a conversation. Doesn't matter who you are but he can hold a conversation And somebody who acknowledges everybody not just those in his inner circle gotcha gotcha. That sounds about right. Son of gary payton. I would expect that for the most part so you answer to questions. We'll let you slap those two questions Since since chris was able to give you the two days the sim. No you don't really go for yourself. You can do that. Staffer time low time. Low killing me bro this. I'm sorry next next next next time. All right let's get right into show. Let's start off with some headlines shall we. it's time or all right. So clark Young men from kentucky freshman guard passed away Not too long ago. He was only nineteen. very heartbreaking. Story for me I i was. I was heartbroken when i saw it. But young pass away in a car accident Taken away from us too soon. Just wanna say recipe of terence clark That's one headline that i. I wish i did not have to talk about here but it did happen tomorrow. Who wants to fight either. I knew you watch a fight. Low man actually. I didn't catch the fight You know you on. You'll usually home so usually when i'm watching fighting. I'm my favorite spot on saturday nights in midtown. Houston so you know there. So i didn't catch a fight but i heard about an apparently And actually april brought this to my attention earlier that it was a very very very short fight so probably as soon as you looked and fight. Starting you looked to withhold loose man did win in a ko. I'm in the first round over. George you know very quick bite to one to two two peace and now is pretty much it but he wanted fight in short fashion other headline news. We have baker mayfield. Cleveland browns quarterback they extended him giving a fifth year option. You guys have any opinions on that at all good for baker baker. Yeah what you're saying bad for the browns bathroom the browns. Because it's it's still his rookie deal right right right not bad for the browns yet. Not yet he says about yet you veggie. You will be alright. Golden state warriors point guard steph curry sets the nba record for three pointers in a calendar month with eighty five. This man is shooting his life away. I mean he issue now control like every time it puts the ball. I think it's going to go in there. He hit ridiculous today with one hand off balance and in with straight it like our news and go straight he might be a better shooting klay thompson that our always say town was a better shooter. But i don't own it anymore. I don't know. I think steph is doing the damn. He's killing all right. Demarcus cousins signs. The contract extension for the la clippers would remain season. So he will be there with the clippers throughout their run. I think that's a good fit for. I don't care about the fit. I'm just happy for boogie will. I'm happy today. Do that do deserves it. Or i can't see chiefs trade baltimore ravens. Tackle orlando brown to the chiefs They're gonna get a bunch of picks and return was is due for the kansas city chiefs. And they're their their run to try and win in their suppo. Samara it'll work. I think i mean they need some tackles. No i mean they they they. Here's the thing now. You're looking at probably three probo Offensive players on the kansas city chiefs when it signed two more offseason prior to brown. I mean this is unfair. You signed an all the top taxes and you know so there was this concern that could cheese bounce back after losing the taxes that they lost the super bowl but the fact that now. You've got three pro bowl on your office line this this. This is fair. Kansas where they can to keep patch holes. Happy dobro and that's what they're trying to do all right raucous guard. John wall reportedly will miss the rest of the season. He pulled a hamstring there. So they're going to sit him down For the rest of the games. I think they have a limit games left. This gives an opportunity to see what else having the roster you know. They're gonna shut them down. I don't think easily seriously hurt. Is going to shoot them down to see what else got under roster pretty much that's a buyout candidate for mixie's right. I mean this is. We got to call the space thirty years old. He's not gained a younger. He was playing pretty good this year. There are some teams grand need services next year so i agree with you on deed. His sir disservices bro. Bet all right. That was headlines. Let's get into the main topics of our show. The play tournament jawa play in tournament last year. It was kind of like a test during the bubble to see how it worked out on when they are in orlando portland played against memphis pornos. Able to win that and get the final in the western conference playoffs in november. The nba's board of governors voted unanimously. To approve a plan is to the new version of the plan on a one year basis. So natter doing this. New kind of setup for plan to see who's going to get in The sevens team will play the eighth team. Then the winner that one will go on to be missing. The loser will play the winner of the ninth and tenth c team and then to winner that will get the last play spot as far as a seed is concerned. You guys understand. I get i don well before i give my comment go ahead go. I think what i should do. Let april go because my comments are just too. I guess i'm too angry about this will be able to go i. I don't. I don't able to think that i'm just as angry guy. You are chris. chris. Cut you a handout. Nobody covey off. I don't think it's a bad thing i can see. Why certain teams like obviously like dallas mavericks. Luca and mark. Cuban are upset about it. But i don't think it's as big of a deal as people are making it out to be at this point in time personally even when i watch the nba. Right now. i need some excitement in. I feel like the playing tournament will add that Regular season sometimes too long. So it gets kinda redundant i see it as an opportunity for other teams obviously instead of eight. Now they're doing it. Isn't it a total of ten. Now that will have the opportunities ya so. I don't really see that as a bad thing again it. It makes it exciting and i think i saw an ad earlier today that something about the nba is now gonna give the ncwa a run for its money with this plane tournament. I don't know how accurate that is but still imagine. Seeing a matchup was like luca and steph curry that would be phenomenal to watch So i don't necessarily as as a terrible thing. And i also feel like it's also been done due to the pandemic due to the fact that so many teams Haven't been able to play as much as other teams have had the opportunity to play so I don't really see it as a bad thing at all and with it being the nba. I wouldn't be surprised if they try it. This time around and come next. Even it ends of changing again. I agree with you. One hundred percent april. I'm actually. I've always liked it is exciting is held is like an automatic game. Seven right you go in. You played his one game and a winner continues and in the loser. If it's the first round lose against the play again but then they really have to win the next game and deluca. I is steph curry. That intrigues the hell. Out of me. I would love to see that even dame lillard you know how much i love. Dan damn going to begin steph curry. That will be great as well. And it's one gang fellas and ladies one game that's gonna decide it all who moves on and they could move. They can use that. Lets them to get swept by the lakers. You know they'll be great article livers gonna play. They'll use that will better. This clip here is fantastic. I love it. I love okay. I can't i can't stand okay. I think it's the dumbest thing i really do. I can't stand. I'll tell you why though 'cause we live in a society now where everybody gets a participation award bro. Not everybody gets an award. Some people are losers in some people window negro. It is what it is so we can't look at the eastern conference for example ten teams from the eastern conference ten right. That means the wizards part of this equation. Potentially there landau magic. The chicago bulls. These are horrible. Basketball's wizards are pretty good bro. They got star power. Okay have these horrible basketball teams. That i don't care to watch play two or three games prior to the playoffs starting at just. I'm not interested in this at all now. This could change though. Because you're right. If i do see luca versus steph. Why i still don't like it. I don't like how 'bout russell westbrook and lamelo ball going head to head. There will be exciting as well. I'm so excited. Nobody will almost that no. I don't wanna see ooh plan. I don't even know. I think he's actually so he heard. He is hurt but he he might be back for the playoffs. Now if you able to get back for the playoffs that's must see tv. Come on man. The meals and plan is but off. He was undisputedly. The player that declare the rookie of the year so will be great to see him in his first plant performance. I is russ. I see. I see i see both sides. I see what you're saying. I see what you say. Oh i definitely what chris. And i i'm i'm chris man. I think this is a this is a partition patient. That's what it looks like to me. I mean they about there's an eastern conference you have two teams that are below five hundred and indianapolis pacers and washington wizards and those two teams have an these are. These are teams. That haven't won thirty games yet. These are two teams that have the ability to make the playoffs. Senator eight absolutely not. I want to see that now. The western conference okay. Because it's a lot more competitive. You've got teams usual suspects in the playoffs right. The san antonio that has an opportunity to to get their you've got phoenix. That came out of nowhere and now they're number two seat right so but other than that. I mean you've got your usual suspects as far as team to the typically in the playoffs but for me man you keep it how it is and you know you you win the most games and you make it through your division. Earn yourself into the playoffs. Not just because you won't change things up. Wanna add two more positions. If that's a fact why not to make a twelve teams and go ahead adding one at the sacramento while we had it while we cut it off at ten. Yeah i'm with on this. All the way being grouches row yaro beat absolute rock you to think about it more than just yourself talking about the fans the fans ladder. Think about it. Holy holy you you won't you won't something how about everybody qualifies right. So now you have detroit at eighteen and forty three to have opportunity to make it in and knock out brooklyn nets. How about just include everybody. Why not. what what. We take half measures we might as well just include everybody and then having a one game play in and we're just really get it right here. That'll be march. Ac low. i'm with you with that. They did that because it so off. If all birdie teams has a chance to win a couple of games you get hot. You know what i'm saying and you make some things happening in the playoffs. I'm with that with this. Whole thing is to arbitrary. You know what's going to happen. They go steve steph and luke on the show and then these two gentlemen come back to mark may just see that game. Yesterday was so good. There wasn't a play in. We will never see that right. So i don't know what you gotta talk about. It'll be highly entertaining. There are so many stars now in the nba. That you have to expand it a little bit. You have to make it more interesting for everybody. Not all the teams that have the big time players are and make it to the playoffs each year. So doing it this way. At least you get to see them in one or two games with those opportunities going into the playoffs. I mean that's that's that's intriguing me. I'm sorry all in on this anyway. Thanks. we need because these to agree me a lot and we need to show thank you. Thank you wars by heart. Finally agree with edgy. A buyer so much over the cloud all right so that's our little thoughts on me april. Think that it's a good idea. Low in christel. But they're gonna change their mind after they see steph. Go up against luca in the first game. Entertainment is and they're going to change my with dame ghost playoffs as well. Okay okay okay. All right sticking in the nba. Let's gordy eastern conference all right. Let's talk about the brooklyn nets. james harden his out he tweaked his hamstring. And now he will he actually re tweaked it and now he's not going to be able to play until the start of the playoffs. Now once he gets back dude brooklyn nets have to worry about chemistry issues. Right will him coming back. Like kinda stifle. What kind of run. They had because they've only played how they a handful of games with another play. A lot of games of one that all three of them together. So they're gonna really have to dial in once they get to the playoffs. Should the brooklyn nets be worried about chemistry issues. Chemistry's hughes I've seen that firsthand even here in the julie. When there's good chemistry on a team like they win championships. Like i've definitely seen that. And i've seen win chemistry off. They can't stand each other. Nothing works out. However now we're talking about the brooklyn nets and you're talking about the big three like that's a huge talent right there so i don't necessarily see The lack of games playing together being white the issue. If i'm not mistaken on they've all played together algorithm played a total of seven games thus far and within those seven game yet and within those saving games i want to say they either one. All of them were one at least five or more Or at least five. I don't necessarily see hammet street being an issue. Is it going to be important down the line. Yes and i think. A lot of people are loki. Key traumatized Based on what. They saw with the clippers last year. In the fogel because the clippers where an down the best team on paper but hawaii missed a bunch of games. Paul george missed bunch of games when it came down to the wire like. That's why you know. The nuggets ended up winning and everybody was shot. Nobody expected to see that. I feel like people are are kind of putting them in that same category. And they're like man. You know what i feel like. Chemistry is going to be an issue. But that's what they were saying about defense for the longest time like man. They can't play defend the they're only a bunch of scores. Only their offense is on point and up until this point i feel like their defense has been significantly good and i think another thing that we need to keep in mind is were so caught up over here with you. Know the big three. Obviously because you know they're all stars. But when i think of the brooklyn nets i don't necessarily think of the big three like my mind. Automatically goes to those other role players. Like joe hair is jeff green like they really be taking on a load and i feel like it's going to be interesting to see how they're managed names and how their roles change once the big redo calm back but al versus being like this huge like all other often. They're all shaky. I feel like because of who's on that roster like they'll be able to bounce back so we'll see how how it works out. But that's kind of how i see that going. Okay so i have a question on your tape because said you don't see chemistry being an issue not until down the line so far down the line are we talking. Are we talking to the finals. Conference finals so i guess i guess it would depend on to. This is the other thing too. When i heard that the james harden re tweaked. What was the verbiage. Like re tweeted. Hamstring he her. I don't know that being done on purpose. Or they're low key just waiting until layoffs. 'cause right now even james harden were to blame. There's not much that can happen within this time so it. If if i'm the brooklyn nets. I'm thinking to myself now. We just gonna let this man continue to rest and really bring him out when when it counts high. Think that the real issue to me. Or what's what's gonna be. The focal point is at the end of the day. There is only one ball so it's going to be interesting to see the role that everybody officially decided to take. Because i do not feel like those were. Those roles are officially set in stone. That's kinda why my mind goes directly to those michael key players that i was talking to you about. Joe hairs gyp. Green of bruce brown. It is going to be an issue but up until this point. I'm not concerned body. He's gained hard in them. Don't pull up. Calm when playoff start twenty-second may absolute right aprons. I'm thinking maybe even like two weeks three weeks and then it's going to be concerning then i'll probably say what it's going to be a factor because it all depends on how many games they've all missed all to other. Bet you kind of backtrack able. I know worry. Now you're saying it's a concern when you think about the clippers clippers didn't have those role players at the brooklyn nets have like that's like the clippers. Don't have that that almost like that foundation. And i feel like that i feel that's why james harden and kevin durant kyrie irving are kind even taking their time. That's like Irving you know what. I'm celebrating ramadan. I'm just not going to pull up today. Because he knows that. There's other people on the team that that can carry that low the clippers that was not you know everybody was counting on playoff. Pm playoff pete. In pull up so i think that's the big dip at the end of the day i'll This him on c. Chemistry being an issue. I feel like at the end of the day. James harden the left age town. You went to the brooklyn nets because he knows what he wants. He knows that he can win a championship. There they all know that they can win a championship there. So i don't. I don't foresee that being an issue. And i'm gonna just leave at and quit trying to convince me her brother. Why try to convince yourself. April because a lot of poise there. They should be concerned. Look they're interesting right okay. That's fine. But i think they should be a little bit concern especially with some of the matches. They have coming up in this first round. If they're able to play against the miami heat in the first round and somehow that's the first matchup. Don't laugh chris. that's the overlap. that's a concern for me because you need chemistry. You said it perfectly right the clippers. They were team favourite coming in last year. They had a lotta pieces but they had no chemistry even miami when they had the big three. What they say going to one never went three. They lost their first against the dallas mavericks because they had no chemistry going into that series. A l- with the boston celtics did. They had to fight and pull their way to their first championship. They had to really pull together to gain chemistry so if the brooklyn nets are thinking go into the playoffs when james harden his hurt and it all of a sudden bill chemistry. They're not full anybody. They may not fully meet. They have to build their chemistry. James harden is the key to the run to their championship. Whether or not he's gonna come in and he's gonna take minutes and time but we've run the players and like oh. Can you bring a really good point. Go search you point. Kyrie's been out. I think kyrie's You know he's fast and with ramadan. You have james harden who aggravated his injury when he had a hamstring injury. Kevin durant is out there. That have a rookie head coach. Steve nash. It's just tough in brooklyn man. Let me tell you something april said. She's worried about two weeks into me. I'm not worried about the nets until june. Catch my drift about that. He's gonna. i'm not worried about them at all. Day are the best team in the eastern conference and is not even close in fact. I'll even say this. I go this far as long as two of the three are available. I'm not concerned you smoking something. Today you came in here late because all all put you on blast. He gave me a smoking. Good good and gonna come in here and talk about. I come on gimme a break. And they're not people are talking about this. Coaching staff to coaching staff is young. This is i run at trying to get a championship. That's something that's not being talked about. Enough he's gonna be going against the likes of doc rivers which i know he blew a three one. I'm just saying there's a lot. That's a lot of pressure. Oh steve get doc rivers. Who's he gonna go dot com okay. That's why but he's still a rookie coach. He's still coach and he's going to have to help build this team and build some chemistry. That's not easy. We'll see we'll see nationally made about because it's gonna be moment. Come these playoffs. Where he believe it or not brooklyn nets are going to be down and it's going to rely on his coaching to get them that win. I grew and if he can do that. Fine i'll say okay. They might be able to have. You can't do that now. Was brooklyn percent agree with you but that just won't happen into jim. I'm i'm you brought up a lot of great points you know. I don't know chris. We were kindred spirits out man we might might be because i've been saying from the get-go in order for the brooklyn nets to achieve the ultimate goal. What's that championship. You need all tree them boys right until then tree tree tree trae. All right look katie. Just did he's go. He came off. The bench scored thirty three points that that was. What a second game with regain coming back from injury when you have that kind of play of that caliber and just to really speak directly true point oh when it came to the miami heat and chemistry. The buildup of that team was different. You have the brooklyn nets. Have a collective of pure shooters. You've got three pure shooters who can shoot from anywhere on the court and today's game all they have to do as long as they as long as they have the ability to continue shooting because none of them really have to drive right. None of them really have dropped. They want to. They don't need to. They can sit out all you need somebody to drive. Kick it out to katie. Kick it out to kyri. kick it out to To james harden and it's just going to shoot all of you that's why katie's able to just play two games after an injury and come in and just be able to shoot the lights out the way that he did right. None of the other teams. The miami heat didn't have that the la lakers do not have that. So that's why they're relying so much on chemistry because you do. Have you know a different mix and talent whereas with the brooklyn nets. You've got your big three bunch shooters and like April said you have foundational pieces in terms of role players that know how to hold the hold things up christie your point men and the so far ahead. they're really don't have anything to worry about. But i'll maintain my point in order for them to win the championship. You need all three of those players to be healthy otherwise those guys are going to be in trouble yet. Coordinate christo data to james harder to get to june they only unsettling when it gets it all three exactly exactly. Yeah so it's all about the eastern conference on basically good to over there low. That's what you're doing. You smoke in question. If i'm smoke a bit name me a team in the east. That actually should scare the net. No-one she's scared. The nets going to say. I'm not saying that she'd be scared. No one is saying that she'd be scared. I'm just saying this should be concerned about chemistry. I know not for anybody. We have kevin durant who's arguably the greatest offensive weapon in the history of the game. And you have james harden who was just who is the greatest upwards of james harden his hurt. Are we understand that as harness hurt. James harden his career able as your own conspiracy theory over there. Dave harden is heard. Let me tell you right now. That boy come to play jay. What about james harden. He wants to play. He's out to be the coach. Steve dash that man. come on. take a break. We're gonna figure injury now james harden. Do they do that. These harness really hurt these heart. Is there have been hurt in history as a career. This is a problem if i was the brooklyn. That's i'd be concerned a little bit. 'cause kyrie irving and kevin durant can do about them said. I'm sorry i don't care what y'all saying. I do agree with you april about their role players. Though that's not going to be talking about now. They do because they have some pretty good roleplaying. I'll give you that april. I'll give you that but other didn't james harden the thing. James harden has to be hundred percent healthy for this team to win a championship. I'm sorry that's my take. I don't like it then. Whatever what all right yes sir you. I don't like that it's like okay. He might replace me up this next with though you might want to all right so what we're gonna do now is a little Segment we like to call start. Bench and cuts. Oh no oh no no sit back and relax because coming up start that we had a. We never do this with guest. We never because we could you do the most so abrahams gonna have to. Why do you do you and you know what low we might have to kick them off by. The end is episode. My start my own solo pocket after this. If you're maybe i'll get a job would be good. Both do a a duo. As far as the maybe she thinks i was hoping that good anyway was that what the april all right so we try. We try all right so we have to wait. Wait we have. Alan ivorson isaiah. Thomas now isaiah. Thomas might be someone that you guys watch play too much and today whereas these we already know what the way the celtics detroit pistons the i i say thomas about the i is eight zeke. That's who we're talking about right yes. Yes about zeke. All right so we have our from the bad boys he won two championships. We have the wayne wade who played with the miami heat for most of his career. He had two championships as well. And then we have alan iverson. Houdini championships but he was a force on the basketball court. Can i go i go. I'm gonna tell you how i'm going to cut okay. I'm going to start off with this. Okay i'm cutting flash doing wake imitate. This is a wild take bottom. Caring satan my chest. Say what you challenge. Wade dwayne wade is the most overrated player and he history. Let me finish in the history of the nba. The most over rated player in the history of nba. Take down for you. Don't wayne wade's doing waste. Greatest highlight was against the dallas mavericks in the nba finals. We can all agree with that. I true that's not as great. How is his running the nba finals against the dallas mavericks when he dumped. Oh boy that would that was a gallon but his greatest career run was the finals against the dallas mavericks. And if you go back and watch. Those finals is very simple. He couldn't shoot during the finals. All they had to do was do with the spurs do but the mavericks for whatever reason in their coach refuse to do it. He kept driving to the lane over and over and over and he had a good finals run. But if you take that out of his resume if you take the finals run out of his resume. He's a good player but we talk about him. Some people say he's greatest shooting guard of all time. He is not. he's not that when he was by himself. How many playoff series win without lebron without check. None bush was schick. But that's not true we to get to the finals because they lost contributed but no no no shack and antoine walker for them to beat the pistons. Get to the finals. Dwayne away with good but it was those two guys that got them to the finals. I'm telling you though is here. Pupo underway when i call him overrated people. Who am i gonna may go. It doesn't mean he's not a hall of famer. But i think the way we revere him like really think about it. What about the wayne. Wade's game you're gonna say man. That was that was great. That was awesome. His driving ability is fantastic for like a couple of seasons though but it looks lebron. James james was not his best if they were not banana boat breath. We may not even be talking about him like this. I'm being serious okay. That's fine it's my who started. Who started who john. I'm couldn't wait. He out okay outta there. Okay buddy added. I'm gonna go ahead and start isaiah. Thomas big zeke. Of course this is too easy like if he's not starting on your list. I'm like know this right now. He's not starting list. I'm walking on. Don't let chris office podcast. You say your chance to do that. Don't let them scare you. Aim zelina what it is. And then obviously i'm going to bench alan iverson but my way take is gonna come on youtube. So he's the most overrated player in nba history. I want to say that. But go ahead which you guys got I should go next to say chris mind. Just get up and leave. He'd be back. So i'm actually starting Benji i am cutting i see. Wow yeah the reason that. I'm starting way is because of not only his size and his athleticism but he has impeccable timing. He's obviously somebody who's really good at shooting but at the same time. He's really good at defending. I had a hard time between him and a either but the only difference to me really is a size at the end of the day. His signs did play a factor. And when you have a player like wade who can make Smart shots ambi fishing at shooting in comparison to a coup sometimes will shoot like hell but wasn't as efficient. I feel like that's where i kind of struggled with that again was hall was like six six six but even six even at the end of the day did play a factor and the thing about the waited when he plays defense he was low to the ground and he will. Why so even if you were you know A lanky forward or even if you were quick a shorter guard like he could still defend you. So that's why. I have him starting and an interview honestly that i saw that d. wade had even said that that hard a war crossover move that he had was inspired by so complement each other. Well yeah. That's that's who. I have on my list those saying chris now i will say this april. It was all good until you had aired. They was cool. April bay yell at every. If i'm the one you know it'll save something opposite so be it and april. What got you got. No no no go go go ahead i wanna i wanna hear this why you know growing up. I was able to seattle at thomas players. That houses a beast. I'm starting isaiah thomas for sure as they could do all as they had. Thomas had heart. He had grit. And i mean and that's pretty much what separates the play for me. Is the heartened grit. So i'm starting they ask thomas off the bench. I have allen iverson on a saying that dwayne ways. I'm not saying all that. Dwayne wade was a bee's is own. Right is when you put those three players together. I just is a difficult choice for me like you saying it was very difficult choice for me. But i'm say at thomas ways able to do his leadership his ability to try to the whole his mid range jumper. All of those things i mean. He wasn't absolute beast at the game. His defensive prowess was on another level as well. Then you have. Alan iverson who went. Mvp in this league he single handedly took a trash trash. T all the way through to air miles. Tumbling de beek was good but he was like that. Even though if you're able to take eric snow to a finals championship you have done. He's championing for doing that. Okay because that was unbelievable and therefore danced even win the game against kobe and shack in reason and these one step over tyrod blue like he was his nothing. I mean come on and obviously a bench and nothing against the wade. Dwayne wade is overrated. I'm trying to put boar's mouth. So i'm starting zeke off. The bench is a and then. I'm going to go in and cut away. Wait look it's the it's the recency effect for me I didn't watch isaiah tom. Tom was about did have a chance to go back and watch a lot of his clips. You know over the years for me I aside a little bit with You owe and in april. I'm starting to wait. Sorry chris. i'm starting to wait You know the guy great. Just great all around starting all around game absolutely great all around game great leader. Gimme that goal mitee. I love defense as well. The guy plays defense off the bench. Isaiah thomas gaming toughness gimme that mentality. Gimme defense and once again. Give me a great all around game. Alan iverson is great. As far as you know driving and all the moves and all that stuff man but you know i. i'm kind of biased. Because i just like bigger athletes. So if i'm going to have a lineup. I mean he's not gonna fit for me so that was that was my pig writer. Interesting interesting picks for you guys interesting but wrong. But i'll go with that. It's fun of me. Oh actually this is. This is we. It's it's weird that we we never agree on hand. This is because. I thought this one was easy. I really did like obviously not take onto one way. It might take right but do wayne wade whether or not you agree with me. He's overrated or not. I just his name comes up in my opinion just too often when we talk about the greats. Because he's he's a really good player but iverson had that it bro. He just had that to be able to carry a team. I just never saw. Dwayne wade kerry at seem quite like eiriksson quite like isaiah thomas. He just he. I don't think it could be honest with you. very interesting. So do one more start bitch. Cut april that you do this when star bits cut. Oh any chris and low who you starting pitching. I love it. S say which really asking me. I'm not about this. You guys feel is as arid odi. So i'm good.

Also join our discord. The link is in the description of said twitter account and be a part of that conversation. My name is tim. Hello i'll be your captain for this journey into sports but alongside me as always is my best friend my friend. It's a newt was up. Do these one episode of weeks. You're gonna keep us pretty busy. It looks like we're picking between topics throw on here. Lots going from east sports this weekend. Sports news to wasn't just like the gains that were riveting right like just looking at the halo countdown. Which we know. We're saving for another episode but there was so much going on this weekend when it when it came to use words. I i miss doing two shows a week. I don't necessarily miss having another night that we have to show but yeah. There's a lot to discuss. I remember when we started doing. Two shows is enough news to discuss. There's always news to discuss especially when you're the number one east sports podcast that covers all of east sports and not just one Stick we're not just a one. Stop shop for valor or whatnot. We're a one stop shop for it. All new j- all of it. We are the experts as some people. Say not everyone definitely not everyone we have heard from others that think otherwise. But i'd like to think we know something we know little something something something First off. Can i get some jiji's jesus chat annuity. I hear you broke your computer chair. Congratulations thank you. Thank you Duct tape together at the moment. It was the armrest on the chair snapped off and don't know how the hell that happened. It was just leaning on it in screw popped out. It's one of those screws. That's like i have to take the whole casing off in. I can't take off the piece that i need to. So i've told myself i need a new chair anyway. So we're currently hunting. I appreciate all the recommendations. I got on twitter. Thank you guys for semi a bunch of links. I wish i missed the days of just walking into a store in like able to sit down and a bunch of chairs and office depot. Not do that they do. But it's the ones that i'm looking at like they're not sold. There's like the online purchases you know so it's like it feels weird to buy a chair that way for me thing. Don't don't quote me on this. I think there's a cheer store somewhere in las colinas in that area. That's like an office chair store like it specifically meant to go and like you know for like if you're buying chairs for an office building but i think i think that's where like my wife. When she worked over there. They had her go and test out all these chairs for what cheer she wants you so i feel like i need to do something like that but yeah this a falling apart sadly as well. I'm like i said you know we're not sponsored by these companies that were sitting on right now. So i can tell you. These gaming chairs are overrated very much so we set it a hundred times. But we'll say it again. It's just for show like they're literally that's it. It's like decorative piece more than anything. It's looks like it's part of your stream at this point only behind. Everyone the only reason i like. It is so like when i set. My sim racing stuff like the racing wheel and everything. I can like really adjust the angle to like. Yeah that's fine in its. It does feel like you're sitting in a sim racing. Twenty four seven problem. It's just after awhile like it. Just your posture. Yeah it does not help with posture. Your ass kinda goes midway through. So i'm counting down the days. For this thing to break. I can help you. Just come on over and lean to the left a little bit for me. I would appreciate it. i would appreciate it Would you like to start with our good dude of the week since we just have one. Let's see yeah so week is it was pretty interesting story to because i was Saudi announcements as you've seen recently hundred or signing of creators. You know. I mean you kind of just see them. It makes sense for kind of the way. They're branding isn't all that to get a bunch of big named craters on. They just announced a new new one. Nice wig and plays a ton of apex legends Goaded f psi. Just really good a cool personality anyways out. I didn't know who this guy was. And i was of curious as to how it got discovered. Because you're just blown up turns out. He kinda random host from dizzy who was formerly on energy than kind of stepped away but still regarded as you know one of the best pug players for for apex legends through a host. When dizzy was on my kind of his high time. This guy is ran with it and built his channel off Grown that way in so huge props to dizzy because those those hosts like that. I mean it. It's such an easy thing for people to do to help find smaller creators in. It's not done. You know ninety percent of the time. I'll say at least but we've seen some really cool stories. Come from it it. It's great to see when one of them has a real success story behind it like it does for nice way so Yeah good due to the week goes to the dizzy. For throwing the generous hosts out anytime. I'm watching like a big streamer which i don't really watch streams very often nowadays Kids don't really likes summit as much as i do. Go figure but They'll they'll always like throw it to a host. Sometimes they often. I always try to stick around. Like i don't i don't wanna be that guy where it's like. I'm supporting this. Streamer he throws it to a host or a rate and then like i bounce. You know always watch for at least a couple of minutes right like in. Most of the time they're done is like i'm probably moving onto something right so i can always tried to often but i'll try to watch too. Yes dimaggio if someone did that with us you know. I would like to think we would return the favor. That'd be pretty insane. Yeah no that's like a magazine. Some really cool videos on it and it's always like it gives you the same kind of smile when you see like the military vet surprise. The family members the same kind of excitement reaction emotions. I get you. I do not watch. I do not watch surprise. Military man comes home surprise. Family videos anymore gives you like that motionlessly. I cannot handle it. I might be a grown ass man and under this rock solid figure of mine. I'm a big baby. I'm a baby when it comes to that stuff. Yikes of the week. Anew ch- i will start off with mine kind of all clothing related. Because i'm even gonna throw this one in here at you optic right so i start with this one the one that i just typed in and i don't even know. Do we throw this in news. That i missed it. Okay optic phase has been showing out. You know first off you know them. Optic gaming face clan to bitter rivals up until this point have kind of released not officially but like in videos and screen shots. They're they're big collab- that everyone was like i feel like you're either one way or the other you either think it's awesome and you can't wait to buy the merch or you're like us where we're like. This is the dumbest thing we've ever seen since forever in competitive sports like this you rivals. This breaks her. Every single rule that i have ever been taught in sports anyway so they have some screen shots which i tweeted out on my personal twitter at mushrooms. You wanna check it out of some of the merchant that they're coming out with it looks awful. That did help right like when he side. So one thing. I want to mention is the collab- we only look at things from an sports point of view. Right like those are the lenses that we have on so we look at them as sports rivals the bigger picture behind both of these orange though or they liked money creation will they like money visit content creation kind of the branding behind both of them as a culture brand at this point right like it's gaming brand but not called. They're not east sports brand in that sense. They are like a gaming branded this point in them collapsing. The more i thought about those older doing it from not for us east sports fans that are cheering for one of these teams in calling or whatever. The fan is a fan. They're still i say if they kept his cool right on my face the summertime team or whatever. They just started as e sports. That's why you're a fan of options of call of duty looked who started as a sniper trickshot channel i know the startup of optic trust me. I have their book. That was written by third grader k. I've read it power through it. I know the story. It's but i what i concern. Is they got popularity through the competitive side of the ohrid which wasn't at now we're phase right. You'll never convince me that this collapse should happen. It's sacrilege and everything that i know of the best part was looking at the merge it was like. Oh my god like this is pretty hideous. It looks this it looks kinda hoping for some really like bad ass stuff in honestly then maybe as a collector's piece. It might have interested me right. But i looked at the merchant. I was like wow. This looks like i'm looking at like nineties. Metal punk kind of it was. It was such tricks thing with the red pill green pill such a low effort for when i think of. I'm talking shit. On both these orbs that i often do talk show about. Don't get it twisted. I think heck's is a genius when it comes to marketing and selling himself and you know he could sell. What's what's the same. They could sell a a bottle of water to fish that are saying give them saying right he he could he could do that. And then you have phase which is just this global icon of an org at this point and then they come up with this. I don't it doesn't add up. Yeah expectations were higher. But the there's gonna be they're gonna be sold out day one you know and you know so that's just the way it is but they'll have the last laugh that's for sure the rose colored glasses off in you look at that apparel in your like Not that not that appealing. No and that's what i. I have to imagine their russian bots on twitter. When they're like. I can't wait to get this really really like. Do you think heck's is to see this tweet invite you over to his house to hang out like let's be. Don't get me wrong. I've been fans of things that i've bought that. I haven't touched because i thought the shirt was ugly. But i want to support a friend. So i buy the shirt and then it goes right into my closet in the back in a wad that i'll never touch again. That looks like that's what this would be. Yeah i mean it looks like just in for a collector's piece. Yeah yeah big. yikes big. yikes for me. i'll do my last. Do my next sakes and then you can do yours my other. Yikes was. I just saw this earlier today and i honestly thought it was a joke canoe. I honestly almost bought these thinking. It was a joke and eventually the website would say haha. We got you but razor who. I am a razor fan boy. You know this. I have the razor death. Adder have had it since version one. And i don't think i'll ever use another mouths the greatest mouths in the world but there are also known for like just being. The stereotypical gamer peripheral. Like if someone's going to make fun of something. It's going to be with razor. they created. I don't know what the official name is. I can only describe them as gaming fingers leave the gaming finger sleeve. I like to call it the razor finger condoms because there are essentially little socks that you put on your thumb and pointer fingers so then you can play mobile games with your your finger staying warm but also smooth on the screen. Yes so you don't get any like sweat slippage or you know. It's it's funny because this definitely a yikes 'cause it just looks. It looks and i'm not knocking the the application of it because if i was a serious mobile gamer first off. I don't have sweaty hands when i play games. These hand stay silky. smooth. Like i just. I don't have the problem with sweaty hands. It just doesn't. I cannot relate to that but this looks ridiculous. Looks absolutely ridiculous. I looking at the pictures right now and just it looks good help but laugh looking at it but i understand it. I get it in time. Like it's probably a pretty genius idea like this will be the next wave of marketing for you. Know your mobile gamers which as we know that audience is you. there is so I almost bought them their ten dollars. So they're they're cheap enough for practical thing for me to buy just to joke about having but at the same time with shipping it was like twenty bucks and i'm like that that tips it over. Maybe we go on together to one house. I just. I am very curious. I'm looking at it. And i'm like oh lord that's that's where we're at but that's where we're at just create a gaming glove or something that looks a little bit more discreet. I mean but like a glove would be even more like elise. This is discreet. Its own thumbs right but this looks weird. You were in cova times. People wear gloves in the winter. You're wearing gloves. Yeah you gotta get away with it. I guess people wear gloves. People don't wear fingers won a glove on food also ninety five degrees outside. You know like this is a little bit more sensible for any time kind of us. Wolf says most cod mobile youtubers have either their own brand or sponsored finger sleeves. So maybe this maybe we're behind the curve you know. We're behind the curve when it comes to mobile gaming number googling this finger nineties on the curve when it comes to mobile gaming. I've seen some of these look like what they wear like the nba. You know but finger sleeves i guess. Definitely no yeah. They definitely have them. This is like exactly like what razors but not razor i mean. Hey if look. If there's a market out there i can. It's going to be made but this is nuts crazy. it looks. this is what i would have to imagine. Someone who doesn't know east. Sports would see someone in east sports using an immediately laugh at. It would be some sort of gamer movie. Yeah yeah it's rough. But i said i'm sure it works. It just looks funny as hell. Yeah of course. I'm not knocking the The application of and i'm sure it's it works. It serves its purpose but it does look goofy. Does look goofy all right. What is your yikes all right. What we're staying in the clothing room. Tim i don't know if you i'm sure you did. Watch the berlin major. Let's go. i've heard of it you. I have heard of a big event in pretty pretty big event for valor land event. Second time and so that is going on right now. A tune in in a not gonna be too overly critical hair because again this is a like be is probably going to be more boomerang was about to say boomer alert like this is probably the biggest boomer opinion we've ever had on the show. It's very much boomer opinion. So i'm not gonna come in with like things out in just tearing apart but there was what i thought was like a lack of professional attire when it comes to what i would expect hosts or analysts to be wearing like and we. We're losing so many cool. I don't know how many cool points we had but we're losing all looks like everybody just went and shopped at h. M. right before the event started in god like some cool street wear clothes and in came onto the set with it looks. It looks like they swapped close out with the homeless population right before. Going on a ton of unbuttoned flannels with tv underneath in i kind of expected a little bit more of a professional kind of like presentation when it came to it. So look i know. This is boomer rich lewis. I didn't hear myself saying it out loud. And i'm like this was probably not i'm not a suit and tie guy like i'm like i am the casual wear. I don't even minded. Most of the time i just think for. You're like wait. i can't look major style event. I was kinda hoping not like said doesn't affect my experience of actual event. But when i saw them i was even message. Tim and i was like what is this. Like everybody's like street wear like loads. Looks like they're the one dude is wearing a. I'm looking at this picture right now. This shirt first off has to be like three sizes too big unless it's a sweater that he has the sleeves rolled up on but it has like holes in it. I'm looking at man casting a masters event for the top e. sports going on right now and he's wearing a shirt with holes in it and like wearing wicket green jumpsuit. If i was running this event you wouldn't get your ass through the door. I'd be like did you forget something is ugly like you must be wearing that before the show right like are right now. Change when you get here did you. Have someone bringing you a change of clothes. I saw it and i saw multiple times. It wasn't like a one day thing like it was almost like it was coordinated if it's like a look even for like a qualifier event. Sure right but this is a masters event. You're at the venue that it's being played at that riot to me is clear i mean first off the stage we can just segue into general berlin. Talk if you want right now. We'll move into berlin here the stage it needs to be mandatory. I will write it in my blood to make it mandatory that when we get to like a master's level event in any type of east sports. I need. I need my floor made of. Tv's like how they have like the video rollo call. I don't even know what to call it. But there's like a your floors a giant video screen known leading. This sucks is like everything that we're seeing. this is really not having. I love this shit talking. That's going on back and forth like a course to see them on a stage being able to yell at one another. That can't happen once we go back to like proper landau. Because you're not gonna have you're gonna to have some sort of soundproof. Foods is going to be too too loud but the stage right is just absolutely gorgeous away. They've done it. It riot is just good at that you know like they. They do a great job with Worlds and all that like it's always a good presentation so yeah i mean this is no different. Then we'd be ayden to bring it back though the stage. The presentation looks amazing. And yet i'm looking at dues. It looked like they just rolled out of bed. Like this guy has got like a hoodie. On like it's like what we are wearing every day. I saw them and i was like man. Like a lotta allergist not the launders red suit of thing like what. That's that's like getting cool but like keeping a classic you know even saying like you need to wear a suit and tie k. Like Put on a sports jacket put on a button and button it up for god's sake you're at you're broadcasting the highest level of gaming right now at one of the top events i just i just. It's not to point fingers but we've been to a wedding before where new deny you would've thought we were. Ceo's of the sweating the way we dressed compare like we missed the memo at one point because in invitation we went to this wedding and we felt. I never felt this way before addressing. Nice but i felt so stupid wearing a suit like we took off our ties like again. We pulled over. Looked around and said oh. It's not one of those types of weddings. We had to get as casual as we could while wearing a suit. But that's not. That's not their problem here at at visa berlin because these dudes i don't even think brought a button up with them so again. I'm aware i'm aware that this makes me sound super boomer. And i'm aware makes me sound super cool but you know what we're dad's now. We are on cool. That's just part of it. I just think you should dress a little bit presentable. Just a little bit. I'm not even asking for a lot here. you know. it doesn't need to be like a tailored suit just something at least a collared shirt. I would've been happy with. But whatever i digress. I'm getting off my soapbox about looking presentable. For real riot these people should not be allowed in the building if they have holes in their shirts speaking of though the building like we said the presentation on stream from the production side of it from the stadium will absolutely love it love that the players are having fun with it. I do think some of the shit talking israel by the way. I don't know for sure. I don't think it's all for funding games. I think some of its funding games. But i think some of real. I mean i think the n. a. e. Ucf is kinda heating up a little bit more this time Partially because there's more teams involved on both sides and we're kind of in the thick of it now and the way everyone was talking as well. Hey you also got the best representation from e you you know having ascend having gambit like these are the top premier teams at the moment in. Yeah definitely feels like the tension israel you can see some teams enjoying it more than others But i i they know. What's on the line like there. There's a lot riding on nonreligious where these placements get. You going forward but reputation wise A lot on the line right now so we have. It's not all set in stone on on who's moving onto the bracket staged the play offs. But we do have a good idea as far as the teams that are making it so right now our predictions were just to kind of recap here. In short zeta division was going to be the only non n. A and e you team that makes it to play offs. That was both of our predictions unplanned. We don't discuss predictions prior to the show show. It just happened to work out that way with what we were thinking. Not terrible so far. So good i'd say overall Zeta division is out. so that's that's wrong group b. You have team envy making it through going to. Oh i think apart from sentinels. Envy is looking ridiculously. Strong right now Envy looks really good. You know when it came to group b. We both also mentioned that it. That second slot was pretty open in that group. You know like envy was kind of the the prime time favorite. We both thuds etta would go through. I thought they were going gonna win a match. I was kind of. Maybe i just got caught up in the hype was etta division because of i know twitter liked them a lot but even though i said on the preview show that they spent too much time worrying about dramatic photos and their hair than maybe they should spend time practicing and i was right like some people called me a jerk for saying that. No no i was right. They went into so clearly less time worrying about dramatic anime pictures. More time practicing yen you can. You can see on the flip side. One of their opponents envy. You're getting a team that looks like they're dialed in a you know like you're getting the performing at god-like level right. He's he's kind of been carrying this crew from of fragging standpoint in their first two matches They haven't dropped a map. As of yet in they played know crew was here last time they have oscars yet they have experienced at this stage. They look better. You know they got to win this time. They're also going to be playing in the lower bracket decider match. I guess you could say coming up here tomorrow for them in so they still have a chance to advance by. Envy has made look pretty easy. You know they they. They play so aggressive and we were. We knew that going into it. We knew envy plays very aggressive. The way plays jet. He's even said it like. He just plays superfast superintendent super aggressive. And i don't know if it's because they're in a group that is with less experienced team with keyed stars an zeta and even correct. Yes they've been there but they're not like i would say on an n. a. envy level. Right so maybe that's playing into envy's hand on playing so aggressive right. They can kind of if they catch these less skill teams off guard. Catch you on your back foot on defense right. They can really punish you and capitalize on that. I think we're seeing that with envy. But still i feel like they are just playing extra fast. Yeah i mean again. Yeah gives them the ability to do that when he especially when he's sitting there just playing on jet like he's so comfortable in that entry role in knowing where to Entries causes chaos in doesn't come out with kills. He's entering fragging clutching around Putting up massive eighty our numbers like. He's he's doing a little bit of everything for them and you know again. We've credited throughout you know since. His arrival on nbc. And i'm to continue to do so because he's having to play with the kind of new players yet in a winning team and that doesn't happen. That often envies had a couple of iterations of their team now before they got to this point with. Ua in march joining the roster. So he's managed to move them along really nicely. Wouldn't we both thought there would be a little bit of a slip up Adding a new player right before this event so credit to them they continue to shine. There took groupie already that confirmed in the decider match is going to be a hell of a match. Like i think vivo. Keita's looked really good like they did give envy some trouble in their matchups. I think one of the games went to overtime An nba described late to get back into that game in then You know get crew as we mentioned returning team and what we've seen so far tim. Everyone's a little bit closer skill than we had before like. It's not just these big gaps kind of across the board lease not everywhere. Yeah no and. I think it's largely in the fact do apart because like you said some of these teams are returning but even the non returning teams with the newer teams here. They have had more time to get a sense of it right because before with iceland. It was not only just like. Oh what's going to happen with nasa e you and all these regions coming together but it was like okay. What are these matters even going to be right before everyone thought they had the best medic going in. Because there wasn't an established where better than you right like even before iceland though no one thought it i guess the possibility was there that latin america was just going to blow. Everyone's minds away with these meta's that we thought was a joke but secretly was dominant right. Didn't happen but the possibility. I guess was there now. We've kind no okay follow. Na follow eu maybe mix it up a little bit here and there but we kind of have the recipe from the most part. You're gonna get you have the rest of what needs to be done to tweak it up for your little flavor of the town but for the most part we have the recipe and we've also had like agents in maps added since then right so that kind of diversifies the pool a little bit more options. obviously astra's become a huge part of the better for teams. That have somebody that can play really. Well we've seen viper introduced into the meta obviously sky You know being being a. Oh yeah i mean. There's there's like a handful of new characters since iceland that have also changed the game in so what we are seeing some similar results him. You know as much as we say changes happen. We are seeing the most part the top teams kind of role to this. We can maybe hop over to group ache. Because that's the one where i think. We are all kinds of sitting at the edge of our seat. A little bit tim in this group. This was the group of death as we said early on right you had a send number one e you team yet supermassive. Which was the turkeys super team. That was out there a vision strikers team that held the longest running win streak invalid up to this point and then you had paper rex again. They have like four seconds his brother played. He has eastwards pedigree and he's also considered a very good player in so this is a good good group here. We've had our first major upset. And i would consider this a major upset. Although we just said vision strikers has the longest running win streak today not leading into this but at any point in valentine's history they did take a two zero victory. Tim over a san putting a sand in the decider match to to make it through here. Yeah i think it's either. I don't think you're crazy to say it's an upset. I thought it's definitely a send. Was the number one e you team going in now. The hype for whatever reason is with g two which will get into a second. Because i don't necessarily understand the hype and the storylines people are trying to make about g too. But we'll get to that when we get to group d but i thought a and and we look. We said this last week that the issue with this group is ascend and supermassive were playing each other. I right so we we even said then the issue is all the. We thought both of them were going to make it through. One of them is going to have to start with an l. So that was already said that that was already a given what i was not anticipating though was ascend losing vision strikers because albeit. Yeah you've had the world record for longest streak and everything like that. I don't think the talent in korea is as deep as it is in e you or an a so for me to hear that that type of streak it's like okay. Yeah obviously that's impressive. I'll give you that edge. Just don't think of it as a deep pool so they're probably playing a lot of lower tier teams in maybe would be playing as you get deeper into at huskies. Your your number one in korea. So where does that put you on a global rink right know. I don't know the answer off the top of my head but maybe top ten right maybe towards the bottom of the top ten in that sense if your vision strikers globally i could probably think of teams that i would at least for now obviously all things pending with this event right because this is they are kind of awakening to international play envisioned strikers first match against paper rex. It wasn't an easy win for them. You know they'd to audit so they didn't drop that but you had a thirteen nine. Thirteen eleven finished like both naps were very close. They were looked at us to be the superior team in that game in yet. The didn't have enough. It wasn't an easy game right. They had to fight for it throughout in the ascend. Coming off of the two. Oh against supermassive where they looked really good. They really looked pretty dominating in that. Matchup i thought he was like a gimme that they were going to make it through you know and seen that still was the top frogger in both of their maps. I believe again strikers. But they did not have anybody else step up in in really even seen. It was good in some rounds but as a whole throughout that that match you know it wasn't like the level of play that we're used to seeing from them so at this point they are fighting for their lives. They're gonna be going up against either supermassive again in have to win it back to back against the same team which we know is always challenging anytime you got to play a team that you just beat like there is sometimes a little bit more hungry in that scenario or paper wrecks which you know that that would be a surprise in this situation but the could happen so one way or the other one of the eu teams is getting knocked out of group bay. We'll be able to talk about that next episode but we have a decider coming up for that. Group is actually going to be on the sixteenth thursday. Yeah so they're they're the one group that is a game behind like every other group has their team. The one team eliminated. So i think for them. We'll pretty much. No let me just click through this decider So the decider for group. C will also be on the sixteenth so we'll have to decider matches then so with that being said. Let's go over to said group. See with one hundred th-this gambit crazy raccoons haven liberty. So this one here haven liberty oa-to. They're the first ones eliminated. I don't think anyone's surprise. I don't think we really giving them a chance. I know were they the ones that were. Did you say a fun. Fact about the last episode of my crazy haven liberty. Let me see what. I have in my notes here. A might be thinking data. Now that i'm thinking about it out loud no surprise. I don't think anyone really thought they were going to move on. And now you have one hundred thieves which albeit i thought they were going to move on to a little shocking to me. One hundred thieves was the one a team that i kind of was questionable going into this just from a consistency standpoint. Like because they've always been the team with high expectations that they never in my opinion fully met like they've never fully met the expectations that i had for that roster which are high expectations. I'll give you that. But that's what happens when you have like half of the best. Na on your team like you're just going to get that expectation. Like i mentioned last episode with hundred thieves like the one x factor. That i was waiting to see old elaine experience right like they have it at the highest level in sports right now and i thought that would come into play you know. What can i say something like that off that note. Is there also one of the teams. Because i just thought of this. They're also one of the teams talking like the most shit. And i wonder if that's playing into it is if they're if they know some of these guys they're playing up against don't have that big time land experience and if you can get into their head in any competitive advantage sake why not take it also have steel in higo. It's a to pretty dettori. Shit talkers also. You should talk to your team being like. Oh tim's talkin. Shit like elliot to tim got triggered at this guy. Well it could happen happening. Right right. Talked for online. I do think the land experience came into play. 'cause i'm gonna jump straight to. It's obviously gambit. An hundred thieves both won their first round match up. They both to those teams addict. That was very much anticipated to happen. The match were all waiting for one hundred thieves gambit matchup in tim. That's where i i do think. The land experience came into play. Because i map gambit be sent thirteen five lily with add and you kinda thought oh this is where they could get run over right like the next map might be quick. That's why mentally. I was thinking. This is what i thought right. This is like my expectations is that they need to perform a need to to make it through the playoffs. And then after watching the gambit one. I was thinking here we go one hundred years. Is it right like we could see happening gambit to great team what are they gonna do in that next map in its icebox. Always a tough map. I just really think like it's it's it really is a unique map. I'm still not in love with it. I don't hate it but it's not what you said the other night. More than planets such a nice way to say what you said last night when we played icebox. I don't like playing. But i don't mind watching it like i think it's it's not bad the watch. Check this out to get. It started off that map against hundred thieves quarters nine to nine to two. This is a team that is now. What four rounds away from elimination. I say elimination falling into the the lower bracket. Here's nine to know that Dan was up nine two nine three nine three nine three entry. Sorry nine three coming out of that first. Half in you kind of just wrote it off at that point. I really thought it was done. And i think this is where the land experience came in. Because gambit then came out and i think one the first shoe verse. They one pistol round by diffuse than fourteen. They won the second round round fourteen overall by gunfight. It's a now you're looking at eleven rounds at that point. It's eleven three sitting here. Hundred runs the table. Not many teams. I think would really have a data type of mental capacity that moment to kind of gather yourselves in pull that back especially after losing the pistol round. It's already bad enough. That you got your ass. What that first half but then what do you tell yourself before the next half. You are half to win the pill. Let's just take the pistol. let's get this round. That'll insurance a second rounder. At least against the echo. It's always like we steamroll. Raising the pistol round was the best thing to happen to them because it didn't allow them to get comfortable too fast right like i almost wonder if they won that pistol round. Would they have gotten a little like okay. We're back in it too soon. It would have felt like they could. Easily got anti echoed. The next round like that happening either way. This put them virtually on the brink of falling down. He had craziest clutch moments like. It wasn't even the most epic three ones that we've seen right like it was a very intense situation. He pulled that off. I think in the sense of the play itself. It wasn't like game changing but as the moment that it happened overall he went twelve and fourteen on icebox like he only had twelve. Kills on the map. But i shit you not of those twelve. Probably like four or five. Were complete match saving or map saving. Kills like i. If he didn't get it could have gone completely. The opposite way Azima was was dominant on their twenty. Three nineteen eighty are one. Seventy one shot rate of twenty four percent insane performance by them but again in on gambits side. i mean they still performed. Well like if you're just looking at the box score of it it played. I mean it's just like you said like and we've all been if you've all played a competitive match you've all been on that side of holy shit. We just dominated him that first. Half this voice like let's just finish this out already like you could mindset or changing at that point. You're getting a little excited. You can feel the finish line is near in you. See how quick it can flip in. That takes us into their map. Three tim where the complete opposite basically happen here except for one. Critical component is hundred. Thieves started off. You know nine three first-half going into what was it. Splits in roles reversed gambits the one making the comeback roaring back. The only difference was hundred was able to break them in the middle of their their run in kinda slow down not only money but they they went back to back rounds pulled a little bit further ahead in at that point there were able to get it with a thirteen ten win. I mean damn near came down to the wire again. But you know gambit showed a lot of mental fortitude at that point to make the comeback. They did You know to make it a close game and so i still believe both these teams are going through. We are going to see a rematch of gambit in crazy raccoons and that was a slaughter. I mean i think it was thirteen one. Thirteen one of packaged back down. wasn't a good showing. But hey this is one of those that could be a creeper match. You better be ready to play again right like the crazy raccoon not to send throw the setting into combat. Here be we gotta respect all the players. I respect all the teams. But i don't think this is a creeper i think ambit- should if gambit loses too crazy raccoons because i think if there's one region that has just shown themselves these last couple international events it's japan there just behind this just simple as that. Japan is behind when it comes to international play and Gambit role that you don't see them in this genre of play so to have them involved is obviously great but we need to do not far off but they have a little ways to go there. Definitely like behind when it comes to where. Somebody's on the region. Jared yeah so gambling and again. And i know so in a wolf brought up chat a little bit ago about and i don't know if you saw this drama on reddit and twitter should sam talking shit quote unquote about one hundred thieves. Did you see this. He brought up. If i might be butchering it. But he brought up i think. He predicted gambit beating. One hundred thieves and a lot of people are like what the hell not supporting your na brethren blah blah blah blah blah. And i feel like he's getting a bad rap on this because camp. It is a good team. They are number one in eu and where the e u favorites going into it. So i don't think that's out of the realm of possibility and again like we've even said what hundred thieves have been inconsistent even on na side of even beating the top eight teams. So you know to to just assume that they were gonna roll gambit. I don't even here like looking at just around. Differential gambit is plus twenty seven one hundred thieves plus fourteen. Obviously we said you're beating raccoons to maps thirteen and one will will help boost that but nonetheless. They still did it. Yeah i mean look. That's not that wasn't that bold of the prediction. He wasn't supporting his country. Look it and that's the issue because realistically if it wasn't four a comeback led by. Jesus christ himself. One hundred thieves would not have won that match. So it's not crazy to think a incredible run for them to come back and do that. And so Lugging they got smoked at first map like it was very very easily could have been a uh-huh and we wouldn't have been surprised it would have been like. Yeah now hundreds as has to be crazy. Raccoons like okay. We still two teams that we thought we'd go through. So yeah i mean groups. He is looking like. It's gonna hold firm. I i really don't see again. It's slipping up here. And then group d is the only group with three teams so therefore it has already been set in stone on ones moving on so spoiler alert sentinels and g. to both move on as the korean team. F four q has currently owen. Three and still has a match to go so tomorrow. Are these both tomorrow. Fifteen one to one. Okay so you have g two sentinels rematch tomorrow and settles for q. On the sixteenth but again regardless of those matches it's g two and sentinels are moving on. This is where. I'm going to go on a mini mini rant. Believe it or not. This is the first master's g two has qualified for so. I don't know where. I see this on twitter from both non talking heads and talking heads like i saw jake lucky. Bring it up saying that. This is his favorite favorite rivalry sentinels and g two. And i'm looking at myself like do i not know. What a rivalry is to twitter rivalry. It's a twitter rivalry. Right between twitter accounts awesome banter but to me to say that this is a rivalry is offensive to sentinels. Sentinels are defending master. Champions g to didn't even qualify for the last one like purely like online should talking is where that's only coming from because the only rivalries any teams have as within your own region at this point in time right like you can't even really say sentinels fanatic is now some deep rivalry because fanatic. Didn't frigging make it to this liquid. Didn't to this event so there's really no international rather than just any you right but that's right the as a whole grass right and that doesn't even feel as big right now. I would say in the in. I feel like that. That is the biggest rivalry from because. I'm not rooting for one. Particular team just rooting for my region. Right now look. I think the playoffs and i'll get that way but even like with iceland. I remember any. Naet you mattaya was like glued. Like i'm watching. Yeah yeah no. That was the first always going to be hard to kind of like. I dunno copies capture that moment but regardless of the matches that come out here right so sentinels are the only one to still play two matches. They play like we said tomorrow and and but we did see that head to head against e. to happen already in that was a pretty good matchup overall like sentinels gave gave it to g to ultimately but we had the took a map off of them and Drop a map last time when they were in iceland. So that does it shows something right like it's not as it is not meaningless. That even the law. I nap off. I feel like it's kind of fast and furious number one when he beats almost beats van diesel in a match. And he's like. I almost had you and he's like everyone's just like cool bro. Like cool story like you almost had me you. You took one map off of them. One a rivalry. What a rivalry g to winning is winning right and they lost. So that's that's i don't i don't buy into the rival reject yet even if g. tube beats him in this next match. It's like okay. Well you've both already qualified. I just think save it for the playoffs. And we'll see i don't know. We'll art the rivalry so far. This is the twitter. it's carlos flying a plane over berlin with a banner on the back of it saying fuck sentinels right before they even had their matching was funny because amb tweeted out pro. This is a group stage match like we're not even in eliminates that's like earth game results for tomorrow say gee to beat sentinels and i'm sure then twitter is gonna blow up. Carlos is gonna talk and then they're going to be like bro. This is a group stage match for group that we've already qualified to go to the play on anymore. It would mean something for g to beat centeno. Look i think of sentinels actually dropped a game. It doesn't mean anything like does that mean sentinels is gonna lose. No but is it meaningful. Like i think so like i think it would mean something as sentinels were to actually drop a series in the event because they didn't drop one last time that would show that the gap is getting slightly closer. That at least it's like they're both going to be playing to win. I guess is what i'm saying. I don't think sentinels is gonna go in there and be like we already made it through like they wanna come out of this group as the number one seed undefeated in have the easiest possible matchup that they could have going into the next round right that that could be the difference between playing crew or you could be playing envy you know. It's like a quite a big difference in who you could be playing based on receding and all that so a lot still think there's something on the line. Although i agree that it's the end of the day it's another group stage match in what's gonna matter is what's going to happen over the next week. Not what's happening tomorrow right. Like you said the hype that i get. It's all twitter hype. I get that but the hype that people are bringing with g. tube like bro. This is your first time qualifying. Let's let's back up here like a completely new roster so you guys are acting like you're right now you guys are acting like you're g two from a year ago like let's calm down k. You're not even number one in a you. Write your top five going fifth right now in you according to dot g so it's like let's let's commerce hits and like let's take a step back and realize what we're talking about here. Yeah i mean although. I would encourage them to continue the venture because i love it. Oh it's funded best especially funny when you're on the na side winning and it's like like being a cowboys fan and Dallas mavericks fan. I'm used to like outlandish outspoken owners. Right between mark cuban jerry jones. I have enough of that in my wife. I love the way. Carlos says approach is the same way with g two is. He's out there. He's basically a player himself when it comes to how he interacts on social media. He doesn't talk like an owner. He's just different. Built differ that way and so i urge it like doing you do because it does make it fun right like it adds that extra element to it that you wouldn't have otherwise if he wasn't so blatantly out there in a before their matches throughout the weeks and months leading up to this. I encourage the little little brother syndrome that he has. It's hilarious whole larry's so there's that by the time we do. The next show will definitely know who's going into the playoffs. The playoffs are set to start. The seventeenth is the first match. So some of these guys are gonna be qualifying and then going right into it on friday so we do our show. This'll be grand finals on the nineteenth. Yup sunday yeah. So we'll definitely know that being said will probably be doing a show either sunday night or tuesday night of next week such as keep an eye on that as i say that out loud because the lions are playing monday night and i get like one of those every year so i wouldn't even ask you to do it on that night. We are wouldn't even ask. I'll be watching with you. Tim there we go. You can you. Can't it's an experience. Green bay green bay green bay. Aaron rodgers thrown the season for them. I appreciate it my wife. Just text me that. Our water heater went out. Don't own a house. Children really does suck it really tonight. Water heaters out. We had to replace it great. We did that a couple of years ago sucks. Not as bad as you're going out. Though that i had a couple months ago i just had that a couple years ago. You had that to We had the roof redone recently. Which was a pain in the ass to try to do. And then today they were like. Hey were you know. Oh little hail damage on the gutters. Let's replace them fine. What do we need to well to insurance coverage. Let's just do it. That's what the roofer set right guy comes by last week. Says hey what do you want for the gutters said the same exact gutters that we have. Same colors replace them. Okay sure no problem comes by today. Replaces the gutters not the same color. That's unfortunate like us shade different like if you came over to my house you you would look at him and say okay. Yeah they look good like what are you talking about. But they are a shade different and it's just like triggering pay anything for your roof replacement. No no yeah and the guy says we're about to do ours. Also yeah and the guys are roofer was is nice about. Oh i'm sorry you know they'll make it right but it's just kind of like come on bro. Owning house sucks. It really does get a tankless water heater now so nice. So there's that little little boomer talk for you. Let's get into Speaking of boomer boomer of f. p. s.'s let's get into some cis real quick because the easel pro league season. Fourteen ended up wrapping up with navy defeating vitality in the finals. Three to two in a best of five it went the best five incredible matchup there anything before the finals that you wanted to highlight. Yes yes yes in more yes. I don't know if you saw the liquid heroic match. I'm gonna tell you tim. I was glued to the play offs for this. I really watched. I caught myself watching not a lot more counterstrike than valerie. But that's for my audio was on for rights on. I had them both on. I'm listening to the matches. That heroic liquid matchup probably one of the most epic best of three series. I've seen obviously highlighted by refreshes one five on map three at fifteen fourteen to take it to overtime like it's just one of the most incredible so poorly played by liquid. Had bro old fall in the right place but they were let me tell you. I wanted to die if there's a one v five and the one ends up winning that it's a a thousand percent always poorly played by the. Yeah they were. There is ninety one v five. He literally walked around picking off people one by one just like rebounding that man walking into a warehouse and look every match in. That game was very good. Overpass in new. We're we're both really good. Match ups that infertile. One will go down as you know a game to remember because you just don't see one be five fifteen fourteen in a map three in an elimination match up Such a fantastic play A kind of felt that way about the navy heroic matchup which was a semifinals matchup. Also another really just legendary match of navy in these guys. Every map winter sixteen thirteen sixteen fourteen. You know like you couldn't have asked for closer games. Nuke was kind of the same way ended on you know a really clean ending to take. I guess you could say because it was looking like it was in heroics favor in nabi had to make a three map. Run at the three round run at the end to come back and take it so. It was Thrilling you know for for nabi. This event in general really kinda caps off an awesome season for them so far obviously taking the intel grand slam is the icing on the cake. But tim i heard you say we're entering the knobby era. Is it an era without a major under your belt like can you put them in era status without a major cause. Then would you say. We had the liquid era at any point when they won the grand slam bright. Well also one thing. I about heroic. They had to play their nuts off this event because they lost all their sponsors so there's author sponsors lost their coach name being dragged through the mud layers being accused of knowing that the coach was cheating which tim and i already reported every player. Game news so you know like yeah. They've had they had a really tough run and they made it look really along the way they are a real threat. Not a you feel bad for katie. Too 'cause he's had that shirtless walk video and stuff like that and then for him to. Finally have a resurgence pro the coach cheating or not. I think we've learned that it's almost like the steroid era and baseball. Enough of these teams have cheated in some way or fashion. I almost joan even judge it that harshly. If the team is still performing like they are now right. Like if they're still performing it would be one thing if it just completely dropped off and they were in the top thirty but no they're still top ranked so i don't judge says harsh but yeah all their sponsors gone so we'll see winning helps get your sponsors back. But we'll see what happens with heroic. I think the surprise of the event is by tally right like i don't think anybody really predicted them to not only make it to the finals. Like i really thought they were gonna lose round to gambit i. I didn't see them being able to to pull that off. I thought they had a good chance against g. But oj had been playing really really well so that wasn't like a gimme match for for either side and then go into the finals against the who had everything to lose in. You push that to five light. They gotta be feeling pretty. Good coming out of this. Obviously the newer editions in mystique and kyogen like both of them were kyogen was widely criticized. Feel like by a lot of the community more so for being an unknown and both of these guys stepped up in played pretty well throughout this event in. So i feel like you know they're gonna come out with their heads held high although they didn't win this event the really made a push. They looked like they were having fun in. Most importantly Do did look like one of the best players in the world again. My keep truly played like one of the top two players in the world behind simple. If zaiwa needs any words of encouragement from us. which who doesn't i would tell him is listens. I will buddy you will have your time. You will have your time at some point. Maybe not next year but at some point. You're going to get your your moment where you make a run and don't worry about it because simple spin in this exact position as you right. Nabi was the one who always got second place right. They were always semi final darlings. And then bust right. We constantly said that about navy now. This has been the year of simple. As i've said multiple times and i still stand by. This is the year of simple. They've definitely taken advantage of astrology. Falling off the map in a liquid performing is taking advantage of other teams performing poorly. Not he had to ramp it up. I think the best thing that happened to now be region became really strong this year. Right with the additions of gambit we have vp pro and then who is not sprout driest spirit. Maybe be weird team. Spirit like region became more of a juggernaut in. I think it it pushed them to have to get better in. We've seen it you know fairly consistently now you know again. Taking this grand slam did take quite a while because the first one happened you know at the beginning of last year basically but the last three or four events that qualified for it nabi came out on top so this is looking to be the euro. Simple you would hope his chance. Chances of winning a major nyc going anywhere but this looks to be the best chance at. He's had right. You don't have a strong standing in your way as you mentioned. There's not a clear cut team. There's a handful of teams that can beat you right. I don't think they're out of the woods in terms of like. There's no one there if astrology is not there but they're not at a strong level level right up everybody else. They're not what a strong. This was a couple years ago. It was just like every round every every event. Just put your money on astrologers like it doesn't matter put your money on astrology and you will end the year with more money than what you have but you would feel pretty comfortable on them. Yeah making making the. I guess i just think it's it's the year of simple right. It's just this is his year to take advantage of it. Nothing wrong with that being said back to your first question though. Is it okay to call it. The navy era. I now that i'm thinking about it. I don't think so. And it's not to take anything away from navy like we've just said they've won the intel grand slam right. So they've they've won the million dollar bonus for that which by the way is not the same criteria as it was when liquid one it. It's a little different now. I think they tried to make it a little harder but clearly that didn't work out so we ended up winning that but that being said i just they don't have a major underneath their belt. And although some of these events have been major quality like esl pro league like you look at these teams and this might be what the major looks like right. But you just as we've seen anything can happen in the major right like it's just the stakes that are there when it's inland in person with the crowd. It's just completely different. And even that being said maybe i'll give them a co vid pass and say. Hey if you win this one major coming up we can call this the narva era but you just gotta get one. I do believe that. I'll pass on that one. Typically i would say two majors. I'll call it an era right like kansas city. One one super bowl. It's not kansas city era. Right what about ovechkin. Being the player that he is doesn't winning one championship kind of solidify him as like okay. He's like one of the best to ever do. So i would never say this is like naveh's i would never say like oh that was capitals era. They just dominated right. I wouldn't say that with navy. I would say this year right. You had a year that you were playing really well really the only errors that i think. We have fanatic luminosity s. k. Whatever you brazilian era yeah. And then and the nip as well so there. Four true eras in you have good runs. Liquid had an amazing run when they won their grand slam. The one of the best scene but it was. That's what it was. It was just a a good run the same thing for for nabi right now getting the major though at least getting one it will like i said i might give cove it pass and say you know what we'll call an era you played well intel grand slam captured off with the major. Maybe maybe not long ago gambit was number one for a while and then like not even prior to that it was her roic for a long time so it was like navias has been number one for the last two year drought like they've done really well in these big events and that's not to take anything away from navy success but yeah they just haven't been again. I feel like they're taking advantages of moments. And that's the difference between navy now of navy of late navy of late used to never take advantage of situations and they was losses best to five three two. And then we would sitting here is like navy how you finally have like an easy ish road to the grand finals and you lose in the grant like this is where you you know. They get to play aunts. They skip the round of twelve. It's like come on that. That would have been old navy. This navy is finally you know capitalizing on when they should capitalize on things. And i think that's the difference era. Let's pump the brakes on that right. Not saying they're not good enough for one but let's pump the brakes on it and see where it goes and done a good job of swapping out some of the Flaming was a hard switch for them. Bringing in bit has been pretty electric right. Like bits looked really good on this roster perfecto has become like their clutch masters almost like their zip knicks on that team. They define the roles really nicely around simple and electronic is being electronic. He's being one of the best players in the world himself. So they've done a good job of moving this roster around and again i was if he on a lot of these moves and they've really panned out wealth them so have you seen the fun fact of bit. No he is eighteen five hundred eighteen years old and has already surpassed five hundred thousand in winnings so let alone time to join avi let alone a salary in anything like that. Yeah so he's been a huge contribution. You know deserving because he started winning with his addition to the roster not because of him but he's been such a great piece fit into his role so well it's allowing simple electronic to also do what they do so coming up here then next big event for counter strike you have the blast premier fall showdown that you actually breaking news there Stanislaw is out. He's not coming back because he said he would. But he's still out and then soon enough huge october. Twenty third through november. Seventh is the major in stockholm. Which last i read is still happening. I thought i think. I just read an article. The other day that they might be making fans at the event you know everything just seems so wait and see right now with that in Hoping it goes office plan but yeah we got blast pro coming up. That'll be like the last real big event kind of leading into the major. I think there's a lot riding on some of these teams to kind of show show which you got at this point right. Like nip device has been relatively disappointing on that roster. I say disappointing. He's looked he hasn't looked like the divisive. All right he's even said like. I saw him gone a little twitter rant the other day saying like it's just it's been it's been rough. Yes some rumors neutra saying that him and his girlfriend broke up which is why he has not been performing nearly as well so and now one of the biggest reasons why he moved over there. That'd be interesting also live is obviously as you have astrology in a lot of these guys are going to be a good ramp up event for them going to major and i think need to show well there. You don't wanna go into that major kinda slump in a little bit. So i would also assume if your girlfriend and you break up. You'd be doing better like don't get it twisted together. Every you and i if you and i got a divorce we would be pro gamers by next week if you give me that free time back. We've we've been in the game a long time right and we know he's like young buck. Been in love for the last couple years. If that happened that would suck without that would so thoughts and prayers for for a device. So there's that for you all right. So there's is pro league season fourteen in the book. So congratulations to everyone over there for a successful year. Maybe next year we'll get some land. Some land actually about though you know. I don't mind the season being online or whatever so figured out all of them worry about All right let's get into some news. See us go teases. The ceus go twitter account. That is they tease out either. An official surf map coming up or a ban wave so they tweeted out just a wave emoji and then deleted it. Put the cs go world in a in a tizzy trying to figure out what that meant. Yeah kind of hoping for a band wave. i guess. I don't know know you asked me the other day. He does does any like everyone's getting so excited over it and it's like really guys like we've been asking for literally anything else and they if they give us a surf map. I'm gonna be like yeah. There's like thousands of them on a community server. That's probably way better than yours. Like like it's already there. I don't need my team. Focusing on surf maps on either focusing on what makes the game fun to actually play the game and the community worry about the fund maps. You worry about the competitive side. That's my two cents invalid Bread has released their valor roster allowing them to pursue newer or not bread. i like bread type of bren. Which was the southeast asian team that had visa issues and weren't able to attend. They release their rosters allowing their players to pursue new opportunities. So we i like an org. You're like damn kind of kind of wanted to go a little pop pub on the The sources are saying that navarra will join team. Liquid biggest screams brother. So it'd be cool. Brothers play together. I think we're really sucks Could see us go talent. Unlike young why hell is not on a cs go roster absolutely. Don't understand that. He was playing six men for vitality. Jude playing really well. I really thought he would eventually fell into the starting roster there at some point that didn't happen obviously and Now he's making the switch to bowery like that that just blows. He should be on a tour once Competing so you know if that happens us. Another big loss t. One looking at doing a huge roster. Overhaul rumor is brax dawn skull. We're not seeing practicing skedaddle. Doodle that is for those who might not be on a personal relationship with them as we are Are seen practicing with the team. They are planning on signing the exit. How you say his name. Twee twee works for me either way. I don't give a shit who they signed the fact that brax out again who have seen that one coming Everyone and scaduto being out also kind of predictable automatic on that team. And i thought they were like building like some form of chemistry row played with there is no one in the world building chemistry with scoot doodle and brax not happening to is more unlucky in their careers are automatic or mix well automatic has to be the nfl version of mix. Well i would almost mix because he went over to e you and still had the same issues like makes a lot of experience on bass automatic won a major so can't be that unlucky. The he did win a major mix. Well has been neighborhood bicycle as it seems some of these orbs but no t one the team. That never was so much. Excitement signed the first pro ever intolerant and Just has never never looked good for a hot minute. Nerd street events. But that's it so we'll see I just wonder how long they stick with the na. Roster like t. One is the korean. I t one. And i think korean or so. I mean if they're not going to be performing well hair might be easier to go over there. And that's what i'm saying like. Get your brand and your pick of any overwatch league member that's gonna leave after the season Rivers is that people saw rush being trialed with Tsm rush of course former cbs pro former complexity cloud nine major winner announced his retirement. So you might think about valerie while he's already seen practicing so i mean be a great pickup but there's a lot of interesting rumors going on right now and maybe that's the one that you jump to next him versus. Yeah so it seems. Like sam is is currently working out a lot of people because this is strictly rumor but nifty is in talks with tsa nifty of course former counterstrike pro with renegades and team envy Creating a super team with nifty wardell. Jd m. mr lean back himself hazed and sub rosa on paper. I love love this roster. My brain is telling me got some got some old guys on that team old quote unquote not. I wouldn't say this about them. But i've heard some people say it washed up counter strike players but my heart is telling me yes please. I mean yeah it'd be like might as well bring cutler back and start getting back to get into this. So i don't know if that was the roster that would it would be cool to see some of these guys together but i have my doubts that that becomes some sort of super team all of a sudden. It's a saturday mornings freaking playing valerie. Competitively right now so. It's a super team of names. The names yeah lake. Big names coming into the sea. I think i don't think rose needs some work. I do agree with that. But i don't think sub rosa and after nifty stint in on team envy anyone would Associate them with a quote unquote super team. I still think they gave up on my drone too easily. Honestly i think he got caught in the weird scheduling with v. c. and just not performing when they were should of and then they just had to make some roster moves made one too soon and they never got into a rhythm so then they made another offer move too soon and now you find them here where they feel like you know what we need to do is create a super team. So i knocked back. I work out but you could also sign which a no knock on wood. They do but sinatra suspension is officially over so his cease has served his six month. Time from not cooperating. With law enforcement of his sexual assault accusations but still not found guilty on that i forget where that left off at if there was even pursuing it anymore or not. Forget if we ever even followed up with it but from an e sports perspective. He's not guilty enough to play. He served a six month suspension for not cooperating with investigation so he is eligible to sign for a team. I truly think we if he wants to. We would see him play for another org. I mean he's still sinatra. he's still way. Yeah he's still going to get on a roster. I don't know it's going to be a pr nightmare. Initially for whoever takes him but he's going to get on a roster and you know he was one of the best when he was playing. There's enough people that are defending him any way that it's it's going to be a fifty fifty right. You're gonna have the half the people that will assume his guilty. I don't really know where i stand. I don't know enough about what's going on. In his particular case. The news we heard wasn't good. Obviously that we reported when it all came now But beyond that i don't know so. He's going to get on a roster. There's no doubt in my mind just going to be. Who's gonna take that leap of faith and win. Yeah it will be a top or or coming up. Who knows so. But i i really do think we see if he wants to put himself back into that type of spotlight. I i think we see it. I think we'll see if he moved to south. East asia makes dominant team makes a super team over there enough. Ps news halos in halo infants next preview scheduled for september twenty four so coming up here in ten days so and i believe this is open. I think i saw that. This is for everyone. So if you weren't in the last tech preview as they said not my words a new j- funds you're on halo insider in registers. You'll have to register for. But i think they should. Anyone will get in but they did say four. Three studio said last time he influencers last time. So you don't have to be a key influence or like us to get in. Anyone can get in this time In fdic news nintendo informed low tide city that they are unable to run project. Plus which is project m for those wondering which is just a hacked version of brawl for those who don't know essentially this is just another nintendo telling event they did this with Riptide the one that just finished up. The nintendo just doesn't like people running third party nintendo products and this is basically a hacked chopped up butchered product of smash that the community has made to kind of make it to their standards for brawl. And all that Intendo said nah. Not under our watch if you wanna use any of our games. You're not going to play these so once again. Intending nintendo being tengo riptide. Though did finish up. We saw 'em leo get revenge over summit as tweak or is he beats tweak to win the smash ultimate major riptide in other news face clan announces their collab- with dc comics. I believe for you. Comic junkies out there which i am one of you. Big big fun fact about me. That people might not know but also might not be surprised. Huge comic book guy I do collect. But i believe they're comic book. Crossover comes out next week. I think i'll have to double check so check your local comic book shops. But you know it's cool. Liquid does marvel liquids partnered with marvel but they never had like a comic book. Crossover this stuff. Yeah this is like merch. Comic book crossover. So it's pretty bad ass The playstation event did end up happening over the week. If you're into it you're not my not my cup of tea right so if you were excited great. I'm in gaming slump again where it's just. No game really excites me so like even watching this stuff. I'm like not like a week before. I care about my next game really like i'm kind of playing whatever i wanna play right now But you know week from now we have. What's it called coming out. Wait what comes out in a week. When did that should get delayed to new world. I thought comes out on october. Get pushed on schober. That's right Yeah or maybe not so. This has september twenty eighth. google says september twenty eighth. I don't know if that's correct. I thought i was october. But maybe it is september twenty eighth because you said a week so we'll see we will see we'll keep you updated but either way that'd be cool But you know spider man to stuff like that. Whatever the big news. That sony should've talked about but that was leaked through. Invidia is the fact. That has been rumored there. A ton. A ton of playstation exclusive coming over to the pc side I'm talking god of war. Grand juries mo-. What's that ghost of something right. There have big big games ratchet and clank coming over to the side of things. So that's like the big news. Why would you not be now. You lost the gave. Want to promote the console right. I guess the console. But it's you know. Come on sony like no no your audience here get you. Could you can find new audience. There hasn't been an update last bit of news here for you Of one of the last bit epic versus apple case. So this is. We haven't talked about this a long time but if you were call. Epoch sued apple over there store policy basically with fortnight. You basically apple double charges. People like apple has a fee for shopping in the apple store. So it's like not only are you paying epochs fees but then apple fees and epic was. That's messed up right. So they sued apple over at pablo blah. So we have a decision. The court rules apple store. Policies do need to change so the court was like yo apple. Your policy sucks and you need to change it but then need to do something right then the court also in fact the ruled but however epic you guys were also kind of douche bags in your situation and you also broke those shitty rules nonetheless. You need to pay apple. Twelve million dollars in damages. So it's like twelve million dollars to epic is literally like piss money. Our that is nothing. So i don't know i guess and for apple to change their store rules policies like they'll probably change something that's still bullshit because that's how it works. So all this drama all this hype that all these other outlets created around this and it really ended up just being to corporates winning so like they both got something out of it so i don't know what the long term effect of that. Yeah like. I don't think everyone thought epic was just going to change the landscape. Maybe if someone wants to over hype it they can explain it to me but to me. This just seems like it kinda went. Apple's going to change some wording epochal. Pay him twelve million which is nothing to them. And that's it that's it and last bit of news here for you not ea sports related but we did lose someone norm. Mcdonald's passed away earlier today at the age of sixty one saga. That really was sad to hear. I didn't even know. He was dealing with cancer. He kept a secret. Apparently super super unfortunate in legend dudes alleged That's all you can say.

You do insert low coming down and as time. I'm doing great expense. Acetate man just talked absolutely absolutely also joining us phenomena one. Chris how are you sir was good. Y'all midst absolutely. Let's get right into it. We're going to start with some headlines. It's time so one of the most prolific careers. Nfl history has come to an end. The new orleans saints quarterback drew brees has officially called it a career. He announced his retirement on instagram with the help of his children and he did that on the fifteenth anniversary of the signing with the saints. Drew brees retires the. Nfl's all time leader in career passing yards with eight thousand three hundred and fifty eight the only core back to after on for five five thousand yard seasons and he ranked second all time in touchdown passes mortgage debt. Drew's will always be remembered for what he was able to do. In the city in new orleans. I respect the way he was able to come back from his comments about. George floyd his apology and all that but a great leader of men. He led the saints to the nfc temperature game in his first year. One the only super bowl in franchise history three years later he was named the. Mvp of that game but drew brees a great quarterback. He will be missed in my opinion. The best free agent signing in nfl history. You think about him reggie white very few players whereas like free agent signing. Just knock out of the park. So that's similar to him and great signing by the new orleans saints so be the heartbeat and the be the soul of that franchise and to be well renowned within that city within that state. You know the saints of really allowed and helped the citizens of the state of louisiana to really overcome to really help new orleans overcome hurricane katrina and i think that's synonymous drew brees saints in them and hurricane katrina just synonymous. They work together so he's had a fantastic career. Great career matter of fact may continue to do good things in his life and the community. Absolutely he's actually to the boots he's going to be calling games for the fighting irish of notre dame so that should be interesting on that side from one quarterback to another one shawn watson. These a little bit of how water here to civil also have been field against the xiao watson alleging in appropriate conduct during massages on two separate occasions by two separate planets the first lawsuit which was fouled on this past tuesday appeared in a harris court. District kurtz website. On wednesday morning alleged inappropriate conduct incident on the second lawsuit is based on and fouled on wednesday according to Another player of the lawsuits were filed by a houston lawyer. Here his name is tony. Busby this was a shower. His response on twitter as a result of a social media posts by publicly seekin planets lawyer. I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me. I have not yet seen the complaint. But i know this i have never treated any woman would anything other than most respect. The planet's lawyer claims that this is about money but before filing the suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand which i quickly rejected unlike him. This is the money for me is about clearing my name and look forward to doing that. it's a couple of things with this story. If you don't know who. Tony busby is one of the richest attorneys in the united states of america. Number one Never question we're being done surveys. A little question tony on that. He also ran for the city for the mayor of the city of houston. That didn't work out well for him but he did. He did have that run. And it also smells a little fishy because guess tony busby lives by lewis by Chris ops series. I smell weird. I'm not first of all tony. Busby an attorney. And he's a very successful attorney. So i i don't think he'd follow lawsuit. That's completely baseless. At least. I hope he wouldn't do that but didn't smell good them. Boys really don't want this man leave town and they're trying to do anything possible to standards name man. That's crazy. Yeah true or not you. You have to believe the texas this lately every true or not. I mean it's the story. Xiao become more more shower ravel's so we'll keep close attention to what's going on there and see what happens from there all right the next story. One talk about his. Nfl free agency. A lot of stuff going on. I'm not gonna talk about all the names that have been signed. I know lincoln patriots have been doing whatever they can to sign players. They have been doing a lot of work and free agency. They're signing a history. Juno smith nelson aggie largest name a few but they've been doing a lot of work A couple of notable names. About the texans. Tyrod taylor is going to the texans ryan is going to washington football team. Andy dalton is a bear so there's a lot of names moving around in free agency. There possibly more names to be moved. Aj green is also going to arizona. So i mean man a lot of stuff going on nfl. I think patrick peterson moves somewhere. Also patrick fighter since the vikings. Yeah thank you chris. This is a lot of stuff going on right there in the nfl. All right from football to basketball. We talk a lot of college basketball but the ncaa tournament is gonna start soon. It starts march eighteenth. And then it's going to end off sometime in april but you guys have any any favors there in. Ncaa terminate at all man. Order start This is a deep deep field. You you got zagged at the perfect season the thing about a perfect season is right so gonzaga the have a chance at that. You have a bigger squad that is loaded. Read a great chance last in parts of the pandemic and they look at. Uh goku their number two seed. They they haven't had the toughest schedule but they're defensive minded team. If i had to tip the scales at this moment an gotta go organs because really loaded but there are a lot of teams who have great great players you think about it. Sound like an oklahoma state with kate cunningham. Who's gonna be the number one number one draft picking in the nba is dope watching him play because if he just goes off in his. Absolutely unstoppable in the tournament. You never know what can happen. So excited for the incident delayed tournament. I'm excited to those kids out there. After their season was cancelled last year. The covid it undecideds. See them out there. Playing some basketball. You just mentioned the cougars. That's rooting for in the ncaa tournament. I'm also route for the texas southern tigers. Well to make some noise there if they were ever to make but very exciting those are two things on for.

He's the head coach of sound right. Now he's only tournament. I thought you said he costa team in the nba miller. I said he needed to the nba finals. Because my bad it's all good. Patrick in wing is been he is Been to the final four three times. He ward one collegiate championship and he's also been to nba finals and he did not willing to founds but he's been to two of them and all around player and why am i talking about him. Suspend with backward violation. We're big on children's cherries as why i'm really big Talking about him all the block city had he basically used that turned into was a monetary value and gave that to charity. And he's continued to do that even as he's grown he's been a motorman has numerous organizations targeting young people so patrick ewing salute to use her yard for backward violated. The show. sir. I am ready so but one more note on. Patrick ewing man. They got let that guy into the stadium that he helped build a thank you at that you a mural something so crazy stuff again. I don't know bad. But that's a travesty. How are you going to question who that man is he. He helps build stadium and let them into their band. I'm sorry chris go ahead go. Didn't mention i love it. I love the violator of this show is members of the media. All james harden as the brooklyn nets and. We were going the things i've heard of the media. Say once pass the ball. I the unsweetened winger. I can't believe in to dribble and reading stimulus. I did you watch any of the houston rockets. We pay attention to the mvp candidate now. Well let go back. He's aggregating twenty five points now and assists and averaging over twenty eight points so between toiling asan's and more likely to get it this season. You know the problem is the is coast bias. Everybody thinks this as bricks little but a small market. You just proved it. All amendments of the stem brother will. James harden's plane. You clearly want weren't watching for that all ya get the back court violator of the show all day. All of one of every single member of the media. I mean you gotta give them some slack. Saying i'm bored. I'm giving it to buy this if you're not somebody's talking about you. The first one is the one that he he could dribble dribble dribble drew. Your your body. Be dave chapelle bit where he doesn't live voice that's about to be of a little bit. Oh greystoke christmas usual. That was the back court fire later in the backcourt violation by chris. Good stuff sir. Good stuff all right. Let's get into some football. Let's talk about one. Jameis winston showy. He recently signed a one year with the saints base. Salary of five point five million but could be worth up to twelve million dollars in incentives. Are you guys doing are selling jameis. Winston as the starting quarterback of the new orleans saints on bond. I'm bonded. I'm bonded on any given sunday. Mark my word. On any given. Sunday jameis winston can win a he can win lars guy's got a cannon foreign arm. He's talented house. A guy to stone for five thousand yards thirty touchdowns and thirty intercept. Show my gosh taste my mouth just quarterback that's thrown for over thirty touchdowns and at least thirty interceptions in a season after throwing five thousand yards. That's why he doesn't have a job right now. Still i'm blind. And no those receivers in new orleans are very excited to you so fast boys because some big receivers and michael thomas he's not a burner but let that man is going to go. The man is going to win. That man is going to catch some balls. Catch a whole lot of balls now. Hopefully drew brees has dropped a couple nuggets at least one or two nuggets that helped propel guys stopped doing interceptions. Hopefully he stop taking those chances. I think he's got a better office of line and In new orleans. And i think you'll be able to play probably a little bit more conservatively. Waste not taken as many chances you to as he has to where you had to play for tampa bay. But i'm i think it'd be fun. I really liked the fact that they brought him back. I'm with you one hundred percent. I'm buying this all the way in. If i was playing poker. I'd be all in on this. I love it for all the reasons. Low said to add to all thing. I'll say is i believe in jameis winston if you take away those interceptions momentum more behalf but if you take those interceptions which i think he will take away. Then he's close to his plane like any quarterback in your him for really cheap. I'm all for it. I'm with you low. We all go to by james winston on this. I think a lot of people sold on them but the too much of their only flaw in his game is the interceptions right right. I'm here turnovers right. I'm going to go in and buy two as well. He has too much working for him. Over near new orleans he does have Drew brees there to mentor him. Encasing easily mentorship. During the course of the season he has sean payton in their the. Probably the best head coach. He's ever had an office of genius there. You mentioned michael. Thomas also as well Low but the one key thing. You guys are not mentioned. Kamerhe alvin kamara those quarterbacks best friend running a good running back off. Okay office line. They're both they're both in the same category right. If you have a good running game you can do wonders as a quarterback and this is going to be the best running game that james winston ever had obviously okay so you look at that there and not even this one the fact that takes them hills there as well. Okay tastes hill is their champagne. Let be known that. This is a quarterback competition right. He let it be known. That's what it is. If that doesn't motivate jameis winston to go ahead and grabbed his starting role the new orleans saints. Nothing will but i truly expect him to go ahead. Overtake that become the starting quarterback and just grow. I've been waiting for. James wis to grow for very longtime was ever. Since he came out of college for florida state. I thought man this guy has he s something there i think he showed a little bit entebbe last year. It was just like you mentioned the interceptions. I think you're right chris if you get this. Cut that in half. He will be a very very effective quarterback the saints. So i'm buying i'm all in on venus. Listen there with the saints. I really i really am what do you what do you think is a successful season for him as a saint mixture curtain harlem turnovers in half. That'll be a success because he's gonna get yard. That's not a problem. He has no issues getting yards his noise. She's doing t- throwing touchdowns just cut your look look ten interceptions max and two lost fumbles. That's all you get is all you get. Because he's going for at least forty five hundred yards That's is. I think they have to play right. When do you think they had made the playoffs. Well okay. I'm prefacing there by assuming they're least gonna be a playoff. Gotcha i gotcha i gotcha. I think it'd be hard with a low if he if he does all that gives you four to five hundred yards which is a lot of yards. But if he gives you that in twelve twelve turnovers like low mentioned combined. Now there's no question they'll be plow picture and if not it wouldn't be his fault. No i agree with you to they're not Would not be as bob. I think they'll find a way to make it as fault because jay give him an a lot of opportunities succeed in the nfl. So i do believe if for some reason they weren't able to make the playoffs and everybody else is still healthy. They were trying to. He's only on one year contract so if someone else would come into the fold and want to take that position. I think they were actually look into it but he. He is all tuesday there. He needs to utilize it and try to do what he can with ernestine eighteen. I'm buying now. i will say that. Let's keep him on fragrances. Colonel going on speak and orleans had to release a number of players because there were hundred million dollars over the cap. Yes yes yes so. They released a lot of players. I think they've i think made a couple of big signings from mistaken. I gotta go back. Look but so. They're they're missing a lot of defensive pieces and i think a couple of old linemen There's some pieces that have left. And hopefully they can replenish those pieces. to still. Have you know a team. That's capable of making the playoffs right. The first happened in the history of the podcasts. We've all agreed on something. So we're all buying jameis winston. Okay from one quarterback three of quarterbacks dak prescott cam newton matthew stafford. Two of these quarterbacks are back with their with their former teams and then one quarterbacks is in a new team. But i think all these guys are kind of in the same boat as far as indeed need to kind of produce this year right. So i want to ask some questions about these quarterbacks. And i wanna see what you guys is. Answers are so the first question i posed about. These three. quarterbacks is which quarterback is most likely to win the super bowl this year. Round easiest guy to become newton. You look at all surprised. Big surprise covid from denver. Can you you look at the patriots. Did this offseason. It's been brilliant. Have some of the players coming back. They have jonnu smith and hunter henry the double book in titans that we know bad that offense at patriots often. They really like that and with the guy like a cam. Newton desk two extra god's blocking when he decides to run you never originated cam newton coming back after a very tough season and then you have. Potentially they're gonna bring another running back as well. And then you have the nelson aga- lord there jillian atamans there. So they have a rejuvenated playmakers as well and they have a rebuil- often zip line all that means and then on top of that. We have a motivated bill belichick because he just saw he just saw tom. Brady is super bowl. so you more. The page is going to be motivated. They're going to be much better defensively. I think is going to be better out of those three quarterbacks. I'm definitely taken cam newton. I like those reasons. Chris and just kind of break it down. I'm not. I'm not really satisfied. With the with the receivers they brought in on any other team on your on any other established team the two receivers that they brought in probably be second third receivers which you paid. A lot of money brings two guys and the titans very impressed. I liked the titans that they brought in. They brought in some of office of linemen They paid a lot of money for some office of alignment to bring him in these into brightness pro promos as well as you're going to camden protection and then just like you said chris They've had to have a lot of defensive players coming back You know and that side so that friendship much better. So out of those three quarterbacks do see new england. But just for argument's sake. I'm going to go in the opposite direction. I'm gonna go to saint louis. Saint boy saint louis louis away ben. Lewis the la rams right. I'm very excited to see matthew stafford. Open it up. You've got to great receivers on that side. You already have best defensive player in football and aaron donald and the la rams have shown that they will not. They were empty out. They pockets to make sure they're bringing in players for that team ensure that they went. La is moving and running for a super bowl. So i'm gonna matthew stafford as a quarterback has to win this year. If i'm a mistake and he's only really got to real years on that contractor for the rams he's only got two years to make it happen deck. He got paid a lot of money he just got paid so he's got four years to make it happen but as far as hundred so as far as make this year matthew stafford bre more likely to make it. This year is the question. I pose more than likely. I'm just matthew stafford. I do agree. Chris that it's cam newton overtime. I do agree to chris. Cam newton that be in my head to pick anybody anybody. If anybody was going to go to cam newton. I think that you just put it. You hit it right on the nail. Chris the motivation is there not just by cam newton but by bill belichick bill check. I've never seen new england. Spend this much money in ever. I'm shocked so there's a lot right. They're they're trying to make sure they give camden all the pieces that he needs to go. Further in the playoffs. New england pages were seven and nine last year. They had a great first half of the season to season. Kind of falter little bit and they were still able to finish seven and nine so looking at what bill budget bill. Burr took has done in the past as far as gained through bowls. He's proved we can do that. Cam newton has also been super as well. So i know it can do it there. It was tough to make a decision. Because i do think that matthew stafford and the la rams team have a lot to also. And i think they can make suitable as well so it was really close. They're very close second deck and the cowboys had to prove it for me. So that's why they weren't in the in the equation in this question so the second question i pose is which one of these quarterbacks will have the best statistical season there again. It's obviously here cam. Newton oh my god. What a big surprise surprising if you look at the patriots did out of a good point with the last question. He said the wide receivers that they brought in really not number one or maybe adler and number two cam. Newton is throughout his entire career. You can argue. Other than steve smith which is really his first season and a half is best receivables who kelvin benjamin so great wide receivers. What he means her pass catching tight ends. And the patriots brought just brought brought to jonnu smith and hunter henry so that allows them to attack the middle of the field where he's at his strongest. And then you gotta think is running. Numbers are going to be excellent so we ask questions statistically i think statistically matthew stafford is going to have the most yard right he's going to have the most yards. I'm visiting question to that. But who's gonna have the overall season. I think is going to be cam newton. This is a very intriguing. Because these three quarterbacks have proven they can have greater two seasons at the matthew stafford can easily throw for five thousand yards right cam newton with all those weapons. I think because you rush you so much. I don't see a four five thousand yard thrower by do something along the lines of four thousand yards thirty touchdowns pro passing and probably another twelve rushing. I mean that'd be fantastic down every pin numbers right there right. We can't forget though last year. Dak prescott was cut. Short guy was on pace to throw for million touchdowns in yards early. The guy before that the guy came second to none of the jameis winston throwing for almost five thousand yards and over thirty touchdowns and he does not turn the ball over well except for the except for the fumbles. So who's more more more likely in terms of six and mvp. I'd say the competition man. It is tough. I'm just typical. This is this because one of those areas man that that is tough. I'm really intrigued by cam. Newton and all those weapons of what he can do. But i imagine going to lean towards my god dak prescott because of what he's shown over the last two years granted last year was cut short. All those weapons we all know dallas has got to move the football as long as debt prescott. Is there his got three thousand yard. Receivers already got zeke. Elliot and hopefully you've got a office of line but without that being said those first five games are offers a line or the dow's office alarm was already in shambles and the guy was still throwing at historical numbers. Some go with that. I got on this one man. I'm gonna agree with you on this one low You you play daily fantasy football right. Chris and you always know that it's not always about who's the best player but the match ups and who has the worst defenses right. Dallas cowboys defense is not that good and you can say out of those turns. They're terrible terrible. Focus stinks is discussing right. And so that's gonna give prescott more opportunities to go out of bellefield and produce and when you look at also what dak prescott has. Who has the best running back out those three that we need this is he. Who has the best number. One receiver as quarterbacks amari cooper so i am saying but who. Who's bearing amari cooper cooper. Kupp is better. I think that is arguing. And that's a really close woods over there. He's he's he's cooper s youtube but i'm just saying that the combination of having that wide receiver that running back gives dak prescott and advantage and before he got hurt. He was really up there as far as yards gained. So i'm gonna go ahead and say that it's going to be Dak prescott on this one. And i think it's really a toss up between all three. All three can really have good statistical seasons honestly all right so the next question. I pose which quarterback is most likely to be benched. Answer the question. I don't think anything we'll get binge but most likely i can say right now dak prescott hanging benched. He'd have to be absolutely terrible to get bench after they paid him saying for matthew stafford he'd have to be so bad still atrocious. They bench him. So this one has to be cam newton because basically you're looking at those other two teams with the la rams and the dallas cowboys if they bench their guy stabbed means. They're admitting that everything they did. This offseason was not just a failure but a colossal failure for the patriots is not necessarily a failure to bench cam newton. So it's gotta be cam newton. Now i grew and really and truly you just have to follow the money on this one. I mean you have a brand new contract with you're still paying matthew stafford somewhere around twenty seven to thirty million dollars for two years cam. Newton's only getting paid guaranteed fuller guaranteed five or six million dollars And the rest of the money is fourteen million dollars total but the rest of the money is tied to a different senate's playoffs Down play games played in health and all those kinds of things. Just gotta follow the money on this. So this doesn't preclude new england patriots from finding draft quarterback even signing another one. I believe they gonna sign another one so in that case. If things get kinda shaky you might have a situation where he does get bench. So you're absolutely right chris. Yeah it'd be a clean sleep on this out. Go ahead and ceo. Probably be cam newton Just because like you mentioned low the money the money issue of dak prescott and matthew stafford designed for a significant amount for multiple years and miss. Correct me if i'm mistaken cam. Newton one year contract so there's a lot more pressure on cam newton's performed this year and so with that. I think that the the leash will be shorter on his end as well And you know we did see him get hurt last year also Of course we saw that can hurt the horrific injury. But i think that you know the way cam. Newton plays where they're going to utilize them will also open them up to more hits and be more prone to injury. So i if there's anyone who's more likely to get bench. It would be him because of these these multiple reasons all right the last question i wanted to pose for you. Gentlemen and similar you already of alluded to it. But which quarterback is most likely to be the most valuable player of the year cam newton. Just because of everything he's gone through we saw last year he battled through covert. He had no weapons last year. and to take a seventy nine team and make them a playoff team After knowing that it was so questionable you know how this relationship with bill. Belichick is gonna work out in the fact that he came back. I was very surprised. I'm happy that you came by both very surprised at bill brought them back If they somehow make the playoffs and he has a great physical season and You know he stays healthy and all of that. I mean i think that's he's easily you know he'll be easily be the mvp out of those other guys. I'm going to have to say that most likely for me you'll probably be matthew stafford. I can see him going to la the big lights and everything over there with rams having a really good season you know. Everybody's always not everybody but the question has always been well. He's a good quarterback. He's just in the best solution. So if you were able to go to this team because what does team needed was a change in quarterback. Okay so what does that mean that. He was very valuable to the team. If you were able to be successful and lead to a playoffs. I see the patriots being good as well by. I don't see it being a formula whereas just all on cam newton. They're going to be good because they're gonna have their good defense. They're going to have that good running game going scheme put together on the other side with the rams. I think the the narrative will be more so old matthew stafford doing over there. He's barley gains kudos because he's there with the rams and he's playing well with the rams so that's what i see and that's why i think he would be more than likely the most likely out of three to be the. Mvp can we move on. That's obvious he talked about here. Tv dave kaffir every single one of them. How surprise which what is the look at. It is when i think about these three players About the mount of pressure that they have right. And that's kind of how determined the mvp. I don't think that this early is pressure on that prescott because he's got that contract but low hit it on hit. He hasn't years you know the pressure's not mountain quickly. Buffer matthew stafford and cam newton immediate pressure because of the expectations particularly matthew stafford. And if i to pick a player to to to exceed those expectations. I'm picking cam newton because last checked matthew stafford has won a playoff game right. So that's kind of that's kind of my line of thinking of picking cam newton for the mvp. Because there is pressure. But i think he can handle it. I think you bring up a good point. I think that's going to kind of go into matthew stafford favor. If they see him in a situation that he hasn't been in before because then it will kinda show his worth to. That team was the last time they matthew stafford has been in the playoffs. It's twenty fourteen and put up a dallas cowboys right and that and that was a really good lions team in two twenty fourteen And those arguable you know. Pass interference call. That gave i think the cowboys and additional possession or something like that ended up losing but that was a really good lines team. He played very well. That game as well so So i've seen firsthand how you can play now. It's been a number of years. Been six or seven years since since he's been there so i'm really excited to see that i can really see from a change of scenery. How he can be a likely. Mvp but i so much happened so much drama and so much start against cam newton's favor last year that if he turns it around if that organization turns it around this year i think they're just so much more you know the fact that you turn around all of those things will go in his favor. You know to be an mvp so your picking you candidate. Yeah i guess we can agree to disagree on this one. We really said much about that. Prescott don't right but As far as the mvp race is concerned. I do think that Just him not being a successful. You just mentioned. He has to play offs and six or seven years. What's our if they were able to make a run into the playoffs and he was the one leading that charge. I think it will help him more than if kamya was doing it. Because they've seen canyon playoffs kevin was has been. Mvp already in this league right so but you know either wore to be the war them so be very very interesting to see what these three quarterbacks are able to do next season a ford for their team so all right very good stuff gentlemen.

It's time headline of the day. That we're going to cover is my god. This was hard for me to read. I don't know why. I'll put this on my sheet low. Have a problem with you. Because i'm sure you're the one who probably put this here as number one leaving cam. Newton has been cuts. He is out with the new england patriots and it is the mac jones era. Some people are saying this is the end of cam. Newton lower you by net. They heard me one of the things. I said a few months ago. If cam produce or doesn't produce it enough to patriots. I don't know what. I'm envious starting quarterback. You know those worn by issues that might this might be the beginning of the and again cameras not built to be back forth so he he's definitely not. I hope it's not the end but as a superman fan her right now. This was hurts being. So let's just move on. I want to talk about on the way of the side of the spectrum. The shawn watson some people were thinking he may not even be on the fifty three man roster for the texans. I think they're crazy. But shawn watson is on the fifty three man roster texans and right now it looks like they may be paying him ten million dollars to not play football low. Come week one with he. Still be a member of the houston. Texans birlas told as you know is kind of as kind of like union exile break up the yellow china's amicable and talk runs which other and it's kind of awkward and often like not seeing right now in such a long time. What's wishes would rather walk away. But they seem tied to each other bow. It's it's it's it's it's really weird to make this. I have no idea for. It is weird and for whatever easy note. This reminded me a not a headline. I just wanna talk about it. Now steph curry that imam dell and his in his and his wife are getting divorced and brooke. When i saw i was stunned. I'll be very honest with you. And then some of the news reports coming out of ood this kind of messy but we don't do gossip. But i just had this out there all the way from the football field to the hardwood regime rondo rondo. What's his name chris. Webber rhonda those back as an la laker low. What do you make it any good satellite go. You know running back. He played during your During the bowl he left a nice back and make it up. So i'll see you there all this crazy all the every every every thirty three zero and up that's been star former star. Nda right now. Everybody's they're all talked long enough. I have a conspiracy theory out there. Just bear with me on this bro. Rhonda went to clippers to sabotage that in la lakers. I ain't trying to play. The clip sabotaged bit. They play might as well sabotage the team. I'm skin rhonda love rondos particularly the rocket fang because there a series where the rockets play the mavericks year teen and row broke. Straight up. quit on this team. He's straight know what i'm talking about right thinking a back injury that a recall out someone could. I've never heard you say this this backup. I got bleep that out. Thank you very much. Second of all. I might not actually might not believe without the second ball. I never heard about the fake bat. Allegations of fix. It wasn't a real injury. Recall her off. Donald john and guess. What soon app were they they. They released him. So i wanna band injury. Her rallied go new. Nah i'm gonna go found sour about no muss our. It just didn't work out as donald weird. Just say you know what. He's not a good team. Not seining ridiculous injure that is just not say rondo than sale. Recall outside her all right so low still salty about. We'll move right on the long jake. Paul defeated tyron woodley over the weekend and a boxing match. I know woodley is not a boxer. But he's been striking and find his life. I ain't a lot of you. I was a little surprised by no no. I was stunned. Let's just call. I was there. Yeah i just. I don't understand how somebody who in the world now. Anime fire couldn't didn't just straight up a store. J. paul j. paul was in the worker who does not you know. The nonce gamers is out of that. And there. An opportunity where jake bows up against. He got robbed by woodley and willie stops then he should finish them off right in them as although yeah and froma mixed martial arts fans and really combat fans and maybe saying chris lowe. Ufc is boxing. I get that. There are people who are good strikers in the moment but understanding not boxers. Betas matter he's a fighter expert. Shout jake paul because he does take it seriously. Nate robinson learned the hard way boxing. Then play play play boxes pelzer and onto the last headline of the day. This one is on a. I guess a sour. Because we didn't want to talk about this because the whole off-season we're talking. We're hoping this guy will get healthy. But he is going to start off the year on the publicis. And that is michael. Thomas from the new orleans saints. This one hurts me. 'cause jameis winston has yet let yet another guy who is not available to him as a weapon and this one hurts for michael thomas and for bro. Yeah no it's tough to deal with. Genesis always had talbot physician. David tampa bay. So i really doesn't have neither talent right. Now start out. You know an accent. This are a couple of ready. See them being ready and so ball game. Five or six was furniture surgery. Just a handful of months ago. Says he'll going to deal with this For significant time only. Yeah it is. And that was your headlines going to jump into one of my personal favorite segments on the podcast. And i noticed one of yours as well the good the bad so the big big backup. So we're doing the good the bad and the ugly on n. b. a. off season and once we brought this up in our pre show meeting lows like i wanted to take the good. I wanna say good so low. I'm handed off to you. You will give us a good of the nba season. so i'm jumping on the bandwagon. La la lakers. Aren't them jumping on that. I'm abandoning. la lakers fan. Right in a like was going on every superstar. That's thirty five years old and older. This has issued a career that hasn't won a championship. That's been awesome. Vs and happened in all that they need to win come off. La's ramallah jumping on a bad way and he was so they can pay for them so this nba nba knees la. That clip out musset lakers always need. They need to be in the playoffs. It needs to be consensual every single year. This is good. Nba met welcome back. A loving amount of i feel you man. I thought that was cool. How they're able to get numerous players in there. All minimum deals so many veterans. Dwight howard is woman sends out to me. He's dominica. i'm so happy for carmelo anthony. Maybe i'm shoeing. Maybe i'm giving them the championship But i will i will. I think so. Because i was beggar i would love for carmelo. Anthony finally getting suffering trying. You got carmella will get a ring. Who is i think white house are got. He has got rondo. Do have one ring from somewhere. They got a championship. Roster on a lot of those guys have won before. But you're right. Metals guide that everybody wants to see what he's the guy that joined the team and honestly don't know what's taking so long for that to happen because he's been available for a couple of seasons but finally they make that happen and that we talked about rondor earlier as well joining us squad. They're stacked we'll see what happens. I think they got an old geriatric squat because they were but they had all right right. They're going to be able to play the Dan gaza owner that. That'd be become in saint. Somebody levy a some of that pressure. Some of the money back back the injuries now at sorted who start to see the sneak. The sneaky guy. That guy was kendrick nunn. That was the one where it was surprising that they're able to get him pursue cheap but what happens is we both know this. We've seen this when you have a championship team. Players will come on there to help that team because winning a championship. When you do that people get paid from championship. Teams shout out to jr smith iman shumpert. He knows was his name. Mike the kardashian guy. i can't remember his name right. Tristan thompson dino's lebron. If you play well on the brian. James seem challenge. You'll get paid. Kcpt he knows so everybody's looking at kendra saying i could take a pay cut. It was like nah if we win. I'm gonna get paid. That's what it's about. Let me let me give you the bad of the nba season. So you talked about the lakers a premier franchise nba for me. The bad is a team they just had. Oh a relationship. The lakers a couple of seasons ago. How can we get russ west. How do that then. We're not talking about runs. We didn't talk about this. we skip just. I'm glad you stop it because our podcast listeners. For like y'all being shown watching how do we forget that. No no not only carnival russell. Westbrook can find may shut up. Let me say something about. Brody is the more the more annoying rhetoric about him is that he's not a good teammate. For me there so annoying because every single team speaks glowingly. Well about him bradley. Bill said that's his best team and that whole he's not a good teammate. Stems from kevin durant going to the warriors and it was. He was essentially collateral damage in that deal and for people to say. He's not a good teammate. I just don't understand that because you see the passion you see the the hunger you see that on every play whether it's game one gained fifty six gained eighty. He's bringing one hundred percent of the passion angle. Sometimes i'll be at work. And i'll type at the computer falling asleep and i think oh recipe russell working so. I'm glad you said that bro. Flowers i i can't i can't stand it either. Anybody this late on a live one hundred percent of the time ago miles an hour all all every game all day community place. And that's what won. T the doesn't matter that's well. Yeah no i agree. So we'll go to the bad from a premier franchise to this franchise that the lakers had a previous relationship with a couple of seasons ago when they were involved in. A trade. For anthony davis. And that's the new orleans. Pelicans they are. They represent the bad of the offseason. They would be ugly. But a noah deadliest is obvious but the bad is definitely the pelicans these guys in the off seasons on williamson had one objective and he told them he made a public. I'd like to see lonzo ball back. The pentagon said oh yeah bit they let him go to the chicago bulls and they brought in devante graham. Who is a good nba player. I'm out here for divine z-grams slander but that's not what's going to keep syam there. You already lost anthony davis and did nothing around him it was. It was obvious that he wanted to leave. Because you didn't do anything right. They brought in david griffin. And then he hired stan van gundy which was a horrible higher. We also that way before it went bad we knew was going to be a good hire a hit getting fired after one season surprise. Then you bring it a bounce. Graham you ship out lonzo ball and i just don't know what they're doing. They don't know what they're doing. And what's going to happen is going to end up. Trading zion to premier franchise like the lakers warriors. Celtics some of the big franchises. And everybody's is going to say. Well why do you keep leaving small markets. Now i look at the pelicans and say you've got to do better. Time is almost up. You have to surround zion williamson better talent and they just haven't done it and i'm surprised because i believe david griffin is gm some hoping they'll fix it but this off season is a big f. They are the bad of the nba off season so already alluded to the ugly. This one is obvious low. I'll let you start with this one and we're not trying to pile on this guy but we kind of are going to but this is definitely the ugly the nba off-season man. So we'll talk about the and this guy's been is get cloud big adults right all the all the all the dog newer donut man. You know what we need to talk about them. Short dennis schroder had the bag in. Drop them in the bag. I said it alcohol. Nobody say that's what you were handed. Eighty five million eight hundred entre Million dollars million dollars. You're eighty five million dollars you know. Mta chance myself. There's nothing wrong which you take a chance on so that really is all about the situation. You got to recognize where you're at right now. You're at the boston. Celtics making a measly measly this nba. Not everyday people like this five million dollars a year one year as it says a lot but a terminal. Nba money take me. I remove any family nelbourne Compared to what you can have a rope you lost eighty million dollars breath that's the nba maps. And and it's it's hideous. It's ugly is the dark side of it happens because he bet on himself. Which in my opinion was a bad bet because he's never been a starting nba. Whatever reason in his brain he believes. That's what is and it's no problem with that because when you make it to the professional level you had to have this air arrogance but you've got to believe in yourself three confidence. He gambled and lost the reason. Why it's uglies because what lows been san with this terrible donald trump accident because it's a hands though it's if you you can't see the hands if you saw the hands it'd be worth that y'all badjao can't see it but anyway just take my word for the hands are hilarious. But he lost eighty million dollars. Eighty million you. Don't you don't get that back. You don't get that back. look at nerlens noel. So people from the bag. Doing what rich paul for the money that he got from the mavericks where they offer four year seven million or something like that and he fumbled airbag. Now he's trying to get back in fact he's may all rich paul because when he signed his deal with the knicks. Maybe people know this when nerlens noel signed is the knicks. He was still under rich. Paul agency which means rich gets a commission. He didn't pay rich. Paul commission so not only is he. I guess he soothes rich. Paul's company whatever. Not only is he going to lose that money. He's already lost seventy plus million dollars. But he's also likely going to rich some commission series sears monthly nothing is again room saying take the chancellor himself but you know what we're where where's the short playing time the say. Hey you know what the following season meeting twenty two that i now works Millions in for three figures. Luther that on the meal right when you know as a player. If you if you outplay contract our shame some there you go. There's nothing you said it perfectly. If you outplay your contract. I e steph curry. You're not losing money. You'll get that money back and use over work. What will you win a championship. Which i'm saying l. allegra is gonna win this year. You get that money if it is not the next year it'd be the following year but guess what now you have a championship on rebel. You have eighty five million dollars guarantee okay in two years renegotiate as exactly what it is. Well that was the good the bad and the ugly and with give me a segue does give you some of my favorite things that we do and our podcast after the good bad and ugly. We're gonna give you other new channels sports tap five for those of you who are new to channel sports podcasts. Do our top five a little differently. So what we do is we create our own lists separately. But we don't give you our own list separately rather we just give you five names and we go back aboard. I will tell you this if you knew listening. Low always messages any always miss low. Owes not here bro. So you have no excuse. You can't mess but that'll make so we're going to give you our top five quarterback heading into this. Nfl season because if you didn't know the nfl's back we're back in the nfl's back so it's a perfect timing. You're going to watch your football and you can tune into new. Channels sports podcast. So we'll start off with number five. And i did this on purpose. I did this on purpose. Because i'm not gonna let little sneak some wack week name as number five so i will start off number five. Lamar boy wonder jackson for all of those who are saying that. The inabilty grew elmer jackson. It's renting over with sit down and take two steps go somewhere because he's been phenomenal in every single regular season game. He has played and in the playoffs. He's been good. He ain't been great anglada. You've been good. He hasn't been great but he won a postseason game last season and his weapons are getting better. They're building around him more and more and the nfl hasn't got up to him as simple as that for me. He's number five. He's going to get it done this season. And quite frankly other bend the chiefs and we'll get into power rankings for teams on the next podcast but other than the chiefs not a lot of teams in the afc that you really afraid of. The ravens are part of a large pack of good teams. Really good team so my number five quarterback head into the season. Lamar my nickname. I dont him this here this anywhere else. They stole it. Boy wonder jackson lows breast you. Let's talk about him for For russell's russell wilson for before it is we've got that has literally done it all by itself without weapons on the hill. a few. What was now but you know a line. Mediocre for most of his career hasn't had you know the receiving representing needs after sean lynch less You know had a whole back community choice. And they've always been at the top top forum. Top four rushing team. You know last year's by this semi and he always has his team new contention so give me that guy over motions for back in the nfl. He's again and i think our top three is going to be the same so we can go through the top three radically. We did do the new general sports. I but this is really about six. Seven and eight. Because i'm interested to see where he has another quarterback we're gonna talk about Number three's aaron rodgers is real simple. He's great you know he's great. I know he's great the only reason why he's number three and number two on my list is him potentially wanting to leave the packers this off season. You don't know the focus is there devante. Addison's atoms are saying this is his last season. I don't know what's going on in green bay. But he's a great quarterback. I have number three without all those other issues. I probably haven't number two but because of all those issues they have in green bay. He's number three great. As if you want to focus the focuses that you look you can drop erosion the movement. You'll find wait to take that to the soup standing. That's what iraq man eamonn to quarterback. So let me go ahead and tell you. Since he's number three number two number two right. Now tom brady. He's number two. Also you would have had an rogers over. Tom brady and this is purely because it will be young. Still have lots. But that's not the new channel sports top five coming into the season. Who do you want. Is your quarterback. An era just over. Tom brady now takes disappointed me. We agree. Don't do me like that bro. The time we're in agreement with tom. Brady's into yes are fantastic. We come on. Ask pat mahomes. No it's actually dak prescott now when everyone is more than five. That's why i would never fight but we'll get to that second we'll get to that a second. We're pat mahomes is number one. That's what they're not allowed to discussion here. Let's get to where we really wanted to get to. That's number six. would you would have been back at. Who is your number five She's sales dak. We both nose jack problem with that problem. Let me say probably would have been you major before the show bros. No no no. I didn't lists. I'm going through. And i'm looking. It's not it's not like we don't have you don't have to. We'll have peyton. Manning won't have all you're saying like right now the list coming defaults dak being a top seven or eight orbit monitor five more likely. Were been Sean sean watson. I think he would have been even on my list right now. 'cause i i don't know his situation is too. I don't know what's going on. So i don't know i i. I get that some who's actually going to play. I thought about quarterbacks right now available to play you know who you know actually qualify down a problem for five me. I'm not a listening buffalo score back to that. So let's let's let's say i'm gonna give you dak prescott right. Are you taking lamar jackson over. Dak prescott so yeah. I think it's still taking that. Okay are you taking josh allen over dak prescott. That's where i draw the line taken dropouts. A like a like what he did last year but one of my pep is played very well for one year. I hate that with quarterbacks coming out of college a hasty of cuss. I hate the. Nfl's wealth give me consists. Are i give me consistency over two of the year for me to formulate that. But if you don't give me okay well the afc championship game and you'll this one year. Okay that's not enough for me to put him at that out. You know i'm most national lists. That i've seen josh allen has been in front of dak prescott. I tend to agree with you as far as your logic. But the reason why i understand why josh allen is a front of prescott and i have in front of dak. Prescott heading into the season is because we're thinking prospectively about the season. Dak prescott missed an entire year with injury and josh allen got further in the playoffs and dak prescott ever been so for that reason alone. I've got to put josh allen in front of him prospectively heading into the season. But this is where. I'm achieved little bit if i were gm. And i were picking players coming into the season and it was josh allen versus dak prescott are probably would pick dak so no. I'm saying like i'm willing. I'm waffling but i'm just being with you. Perspectively hit into the season because of his injury. Josh allens gotta be ahead. But if i'm gm i'm taking over joshua nine Jobs outmoded that now now if for the next three years the The bills are assistant. Se championship game winning the superbowl tennis class. I'd have to. I'd have to think that you know back in the cobblestones to chartering eight one. Eight nine seven ten. Whatever the new saints all weird now you can't say exactly so mita Out on the break and then after that after that you not go their bios just kinda big budget that point. There's a whole bunch of people in the middle road in the bubble like colorado very and and honestly the guy from the the chargers. I really like. I really like him. I i think there's any quarterback that's up and coming. This season is gonna blow people's minds. it's him. Forget about your birth or he got injured last year. and that's an esa in issue. When you get injured is the senator prescott. He's injured. It's hard to to say he's gonna come off that injury you know what he's going to be. When it comes off. Injured joe burrow. He looks good as a rookie. He looked good for them at least for the little bit that he was playing. But that injury once you get once again injured like that. You don't know what you're going to get coming back. You want him to be good at wall. Hoping for the best but just herber bagai looked like the real deals rookie. He looked really good. And he's one of those quarterbacks he's on the up income unless he made the top five if he has another year like he has in his rookie year and he plays great. Who knows sky's limit on that side.

EPISODE 118: Contenders, Pretenders & Monkey off the back

"Thank you for tuned into this episode of the new channels forecast coming up. We're going to tell you wish to anno- teams in the nfl or contenders and which are pretenders also is a big deal that lamar jackson and the baltimore. Ravens were finally able to beat the kansas city chiefs. Wanna give lamar jackson his kudos for getting what he calls at monte office back because he got to do but i will say this though. Too many roles where he's just doesn't look settled in the pocket and i'd been you sometimes. I've watched him this season to myself. Roller we doing dur- during the off season. Because he's throwing still at times inaccurate he still missing open receivers and he's still making the wrong. Reads but at the same time bet team was still able to beat the cheeks. You're into the new channels podcasts. So bit sports tall hot ladies and gentlemen welcome to another episode of the new channel ports. Podcast my name is any one. And only i am joined by my wonderful co host phenomena. One chris how're you doing today sir. I was good man. I'm real excited to be back on the podcast game. So let's get to it bro. Yes sir yes sir. This is your first time this this class please subscribe. You can do it on any major podcast platform available also. You can check us out on astral vibes. tv as well. That's on roku tv. You can also check it out on. Youtube falls on instagram also We all have some things coming up on the lead as well. Check us out there also Just a wonderful thing but look at ryan to the show. We normally have more people on the show but lowest out right now he will be back over the world stuff without a friend big low. Are you ready to to do this phenomenon. I'm ready to get to bro all right. So the first topic of discussion. Nfl season two weeks in. We have a couple of teams born a couple of teens. But we have some teams that have started off the season to winnow. So what we're going to do right now is we're gonna go ahead and say which of these two teams are actually contenders and which ones are pretenders. And when i mean contenders i mean actual contenders to get necessarily witted all but to actually get there to compete for super bowl so the first team. I'm going to name our these teams are to winnow are the denver broncos. They are to know they were able to beat the new york giants and the jacksonville. Jaguars chris are they. Contenders are pretenders. They are definitely pretenders. And it's not saying they're not a good team but one and i like how you prefaced a word pretenders their pretended from the standpoint could they potentially slip into the playoffs. I could say yes. Potentially but the beginning of their schedule has been week. They honestly with their opponent this week. They have a chance to go three now. And i would still call pretenders you remember. This is the same denver bronco organization that we saw go for. I don't know if you remember it. I think he'll six no. Maybe they had a really good record and the ended up missing the playoffs. This is not a great team. But this i'll tell you what i do like even though i call them pretender i do like that. Teddy bridgewater has found a team with good with a good organization. Good defense he did lose his top receiver but they have other solid receivers. They have melvin. Gordon backfield. They have chubb. They have a a solid defense. It's not great. But as a solid defense with child and von miller. I'm not sure of chubb is healthy right now. But i know von miller is. He's a little older but they have good defense and it's good to see them succeed. I like the nfl. better woman. Broncos are a good team. That's just me. Because i grew up nineties seen elway. I like on the broncos or good team. They're good team but they're definitely pretenders are going to have to choose pretenders but they do have a solid defense and yes teddy. Bridgewater has been illegal awhile now especially ever come off that devastating injury. And i'm also happy that he's settle into a place where he is a starting quarterback and it seems like they had their back his back there as well but even though they're solid team and even though i'm saying they're not contenders yes. They could vary not easily but they could very well go to the playoffs now. Do i see them advancing past the second round. No but we just saw the baltimore ravens. Beep de cassie chiefs. Who art cream of the crop and baltimore still has a lot more to prove especially into play playoffs. And we'll get to them a little bit more later on the podcasts. But can they upset someone in the playoffs and make a little bit interesting with solid defense. Maybe but no. I have to say right. Now they're not continuous to get this ruble absolutely right now definitely pretenders but they could get there they could get you gotta show was more. Their schedule gets tougher after this week. Because this week they're playing the jets took but after that they're playing playoff teams. Yes so we'll see what happens when your schedule gets a little tougher. Yeah we'll learn a lot more about them because they're just are gonna be playing the baltimore ravens once. They played a ravens than we may have a better idea a whether or not they're more into contender or pretender side of it. Let's stay in. Afc west another team. That's to winnow. The las vegas raiders. Dare cars plane pretty good right now. I'll have to say that he's chunking the ball around and they've had some impressive wins so far this season chris are pretenders are they contenders. There contenders there contenders. And do i think there were one of the four best teams in the afc but the recall them. Contenders is. i've been a big fan of derek carr. I believe you have as well and i. You know how. I feel about their coach. I just i love that man. He is like i would love to play for him. And derek carr finally he. I mean he's look comfortable at times in his career and this looks like another one of those seasons where he's been comfortable and they beaten some tough teams. It's not like they've had so. We'll talk about the broncos. Yeah cupcake whatever. But the raiders. They beaten the ravens and they beaten the steelers. That's not easy to do. That's not easy to to do it. All and they've done it in a way where derek carr store and the football. The running game has been great but also jacobson's been injured. When jacobs gets more healthy than all of a sudden you have derek carr from the ball. Well you have jacobs who's healthy. You got kenyan drake. Who's backing him up. You had rugs as your deep threat and you have probably what's for whatever. Reason is still the best kept secret in the nfl. And dan waller and know. That's your guy there. All in his waller is your guy. He's there a secret to be. I know about him. I argue right now. That he's the best tight end in the league. Not only the best in the league day are constantly trying to figure out ways to get him. The ball he is a main cog in that offense. Now i'm kind of on the fence here with this. Las vegas raider team as far as the pretender. Contender is involved right now. They're slightly pretenders to me. Because i think they have to continue to build on what they're doing last year. They had a pretty solid season. They weren't able to get to the playoffs but they showed a lot of good things. And these first two games. Yes they show a lot of good things they beat baltimore. They beat pittsburgh. Two teams that i believe. We're in the playoffs last year So i do think that going right direction. They had to show we just a little bit more there. Right right on the cusp of being contenders. Do i think they can actually get to the playoffs. Yes absolutely but i'll give you a reason why i really believe that they can in wilmington plows plan to nfc least and the nfc east is such a bad division. You're going to get wednesday if you look at the rest of their schedule. The rest of the way. We're not going to go through every game. But i give you the next few games plan. The dolphins expect them to win that game particularly with to attack a by lower out then the play the chargers which is the chargers the bears and the broncos those are all teams that. They're good teams. But if you had the if. I'm calling them a contender contender you win. Two out of three of those games. And i believe they're going to do that. And the rest of the schedules for the afc east and musk says afc easter afc west division opponents and then the nfc east. And i mean when you're playing the nfc easy you got a chance to play offs because there's just not a great division. Yeah yeah so. That's why i'm kind of waiting. Though in their next five games. I expect them to win at least four games if they went for those next five games i want i need. I can't see them. You know you know how some teams they play up to their opponents and then they play down to report. I think the the the raiders might be in that category. So i need to see them on this next five games definitely when ford annex five games if not foreign export gains be really really competitive but it can't win less than three games that that's yes my thing a and to your point we've seen store before with the raiders With her coach now and also with derek carr starting off the season fast everyone started recognized and look at you and they fall off really hard so we have seen the store before yes sir. And that's in the afc. If i were told you before the season started the only two teams would be to anno- starting. I don't think anybody was said the raiders and broncos but those are the only two teams right. Well you're right. You're you're definitely right with the raiders. We look at the broncos schedule. It's not that hard. I chose them. You're right If you tell me only two. I probably would not have picked the broncos but looking at their schedule is not all. That surprising the raiders. I'm surprised though the way to say i'm surprised. No problem no problem all right so we're going to go from the afc west to the nfc west the hardest division in all of football. We had an earlier podcast. Will we were saying whether or not all forty teams go to the playoffs right it. All forty teams have been playing really good seattle barely lost to tendency if it wasn't for derrick henry henry going absolute mostra mode if you had him in. Dfs you're crazy. God right now because it's not just that if you did not have him fast. You probably didn't do it do well. Yeah i think he did too well he gets out. The thing was in the first. Half of the games arab. I was like. Oh i'm out. But if you had derrick henry second half of the game like he's not going to score more than twenty points maybe but he's score forty police for you on fan or draftkings or anything. So he he balled out. I heard the way you know. So for me bro. I picked so many running backs last week. mixing yet twenty carries. I picked up Mccaffrey end and a lot of. I did the double so i got mccaffrey. And camara and for whatever reason nothing good game but one explosive receiver i had probably eleven lineup. Smith lebanon. bff's lines no. That's not true. Probably more like fourteen or fifteen. And i didn't think to put henry in one lineup. That's just. I watched the titans in week. One and i knew they were going to seattle almost shy away from this one. I'm very disappointed in myself. I would never do that again. It happens sometimes bro. But we're talking a little bit too much about their kettering and seattle but that team is one and one always saying is that they could very easily be to know into hardest division football. Let's talk about the san francisco. Forty niners jimmy. Garoppolo is lean that team there once again Leaning on that running game and that good defense and get them wins. Chris are they real deal contenders are they just faking it. And they're different pretenders. Okay so i'll say this is my jump over your questions. But i don't care man. I don't care all four teams. This division are contenders. We're talking about the forty niners so for the forty niners so really it comes to all four teams are contenders and said this. A previous podcast. Whichever t- misses the playoffs in this division is going to be disappointed. And that's just how stacked it is when you look at the forty niners. They have jimmy garoppolo. I don't know be finished the season as the starter but we have seen from a forty niners is their defense is back so many injuries last season so many times where people were not available. Everyone is back. Everyone is fire on and off cylinders in their running game. They don't have mustard but they seem to pull it off every year where the running. It's good and quite honestly the passing game hasn't been that great particularly kiddle. Kettles guy where you put them in the league with kelsey mark andrews during waller those big time pass catchers. He hasn't even had a big time game this season. It's been the defense. The has led this team. I still want to see a little more from garoppolo. And i don't know if he'll finish the season as a starter and in saying that that might be scary news for the rest of that division. Yeah i definitely agree with you. On that point jimmy garoppolo has to show us something just because of everything you just named right now. Division is very difficult any team that does not make the playoffs are this division will be disappointed so this team can go six. No but if jimmy garoppolo isn't playing well if he's at the reason why they're six and no they may decide a let's portray lanson because they know that the real deal starts when the playoffs start down the stretch so they may give him an opportunity to come and see what he can do just because they're looking towards more future. Jimmy garoppolo has not been the the key cog and why there are no right now. But i do agree with you chris chris because of that solid defense and because they're running game they are contenders for sure Shanahan we talk about shanahan for years. Ever since he was down here in houston and the offense that he runs. It is very very run friendly. If you are a good running back back there you're going to gain some yards in that offense The year that they went all the way through it was done basically underground. They set records for rushing the football. So that's gonna be sending they're going to do. They're going to run the football and they're gonna play good defense. All they have to do now is figure out if jimmy garoppolo can get them over the hump and if he can't do that then yes i think we're gonna see trae lands somewhere in the middle of this season but i'll have to say that they're definitely contenders now. We have the other teams in this division. The arizona cardinals. They're also to know right now. Kyla murray and his name is being put together with. Mvp that's how well he's been playing so far To be personally myself. I did not think that he will be this. Good this quick in the nfl. I didn't think that he was a what do you call had the it factor to star factor. But he has definitely proven me wrong. I am definitely on that bandwagon. Right now what would tyler murray. He if you can keep it up. That's all great. And i do think that this team is definitely a contender right now. I'm kind of jumping the gun a little bit. I'm kinda doing a reverse awry different ravens because they really haven't proven it right. Lash shooting to a really really good start. And they kinda faltered at the end so for me to say that they are contenders here is kind of different but think they're contenders more so because the division they play in there going to be tough opponents night in and night out just like you alluded to so they're able to get out of that storm they're definitely contenders in the nfc. Well i would say this about this bob the arizona cardinals if there were a pretender miss division which artists there isn't but if there were one i'm going pick the cardinals and you allude to adjust. Now they had a quick start last season. They faltered and. I just don't know about this coach. I don't know about this coaching staff. When a guest the middle of the season yet they can get them prepared for weeks one week to and maybe even into week four and week five but when it gets to the later weeks in the year the great coaches really come out the cream of the crop. start showing up because day in day out grind understanding. This is a week to week league and understanding that there are ups and their downs and this coaching staff has proven time and time again. I know there's on a couple of years. But when may hit a down part of their season they seem to stay down. And there's no one in that locker rooms it really bring them up. I do think. The addition of jj watt certainly helps bet certainly a great step of having experienced veteran in the locker room. Who understands the down perhaps can help them in those moments. But when it comes to colin murray. He's been every single bit of as exciting as we ever could have dreamed up. He has been phenomenal and a mentioned the f. s. again he might be the dfs. He may shatter dfs. We watch a lot of the videos and things of that nature when it comes to that he may shatter just almost every record because of the way he plays and the way they allow him to command offense. But because of that. That twits scares me about this team. Because it's almost too much on his shoulders when it doesn't necessarily have to be. They have a stable of good running backs. The defense is solid. This should be a contender. But if they're not everyone's gonna points a counter. Murray and i'm gonna say no. It's coaching staff. We have some casual football. Fans on this podcast. Listen so if you don't know what. Dfs is daily fantasy football players each week and try to win some big money on fan duel or or yahoo or draft king. So that's what we're talking about we're talking about. Dfs alright so the last team division. That's too no. No big surprises there to know the los angeles rams led by matthew stafford on the office of in led by donald on the defensive end. This is my pick personally to go to don't do this. I talked about matvey. Staffer for years broke the show. You've got this is my personal big. Get out here but it is. It is at the staffer for years on this podcast if all of our loyal listeners yellow with this is i've been saying for years. He is a good quarterback in a bad situation now. He is a good quarterback in a great for nominal situation. So come on my i. I've paid this thing but you've been cloudy for years for say. Have quarterback have never cloudy for rathi. Staffer doesn't as know their seats. Because y'all been listening. I know y'all a lawyer. We appreciate y'all o. Line once again. Here's lines the i. Don't lie to the people bro. I not to the people at the you're to be confused with trae. Trae day was award. That was cloudy. Both for that. Matthew staff i have always been on the same boat with you. A matthew. Stafford is not mentioned now because they are my pick to get through. They're not your pick. No so you're saying that because they're not your pick but we will learn a lot about this team. Once they play against the tampa bay buccaneers. That is gonna be must see t. v. matthew stafford going up against the goat. Tom brady. I am very very interesting to see how that plays out. I have seen nothing but greatness out of the matthew stafford since he's been here with los angeles rams he has played with confidence he has played like he's a leader on this. This this nonsense school. What do y'all y'all here this right. 'cause i'm not alone here. Y'all here this bs coming from. I see greatness for matty stabber the confidence. Is this coming from this. Is the dude. Use the clown me. When are you stab and your black. Rogers is in the division. I get a big step exactly with the team. Play for and in the player anybody could go to detroit at their. I ever cloud matthew stafford. I've just cloud the organization that he plays for. No-one can win in detroit. Okay but we already agreed being you. We've agreed on many occasions that he is a good solid quarterback. We need them to go so where he can prove that. He's not sasol quarterback. He can be there and being a lead quarterback right now from what he's been doing with the rams he is proven that one hundred percent so we all agree they're definitely contenders and we can't wait to see this game where they go up against tampa bay buccaneers. Yeah it's going to be a great game. I mean no. I let me say this and not to disappoint the fans. I think this game is actually going to be a little disappointing. Believe both defenses are going to play a lot better than people think. That'd be disappointing. That this means. I think we were shootout like report. Example the ravens and the cheeks last week. That was just a shootout. I don't know if it's going to be that. That's that's my point. So if you're expecting a shootout ravens chiefs. I think you're going to be a little disappointed man you but you wouldn't be surprised if it was a shootout either you got. He got tom radio on one end. And then you got a matthew stafford with that coaching staff. They know how to drop. Some great plays no surprise. You got there. I'm just saying if i if i were a betting line. I don't know what the over under for the score is. But i'm assuming it's in the fifties. I'm assuming vegas put in the fifties. I'm just saying it wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't quite that much score that's it now. I can see why he would say that because both defenses are pretty good both tvs know how to play in big game situation so yeah more. Some of both defenses know how to take away the football and that's what it comes down to. I think he's gonna come down to takeaways. Who's able to take it away more From the other offense. I can definitely agree with that. All right so let's go to the. Nfc south right. We have two teams one teams. We already know dare contenders when we gotta talk too much about them. But let's talk about the carolina. Panthers there also to ano. They played these football. The new york jets right now are like say to themselves. Oh oh do we give away a a really good quarterback sam mobile. Hey hey i get guarantee you. They're not thinking that. Sam darnold has played pretty good over the last two games. So a man. I don't know man they. They might be saying because good. He's been he's been he's been terrible. The thing is who did he play this past weekend. They played the patriots in the bill. Belichick makes most rookie. Quarterbacks look very bad but to focus on sam darnold. i am happy that he's been doing. Well let's be real. They're likely going to go three. And because they're gonna play texas. They lose a game already to but they're likely to go three overs. Eight at another rookie quarterback for who's going to be starting for the houston. Texans ended one of those. What's the worst that nfl. I think it's the jets one of the worst teams in the nfl. Who'd you say snacks probably the texts. So you've got the right now and most people say who otherwise saves the nfl and you play to them. You're definitely pretenders. I mean this team is a definition of a pretend to whether or not they go three no or not not sure about their coach over there. i do like the guy i just not sure about him. Particularly at what teddy bridgewater had to say about last year because teddy bridgewater has been known to be a hard work and he essentially said we really work. That are here. That kind of scares me. But i do like the defense do christian mccaffrey. But this is definitely pretender. This is this business. The definite there's a picture in the dictionary of our team that's pretender. It would be this panther team. That is larry as that's hilarious. So they're just they're just faking it today. Make it basically but there they are pretenders right now but if they can keep this combination of sam darnold and christian mccaffrey together and sam darnold can continue to grow and evolve as a cornerback. Maybe we're looking at a team future here but right now two thousand twenty. One de pretenders no doubt tampa bay buccaneers. Tom brady the goat contenders having saved them. I'm pretty sure you don't have anything about them. Chris we already know. They're contenders there to defending champions is simple all righty. So let's talk about one more subject before we end the show. Lamar jackson and the baltimore. Ravens were able to beat the kansas city chiefs the other day week. Two of the nfl a team. That lamar jackson has had a lot of problems against during that game. You start a stat. That was pretty shocking. Him versus the field held. Besides the can't say cheese. He had a winning record. It was a pretty good winning record and then you saw what he was able to do against kansas city chiefs. Not very good. His passer rating was terrible. So this is definitely been his kryptonite less far as trying to beat the cassidy chiefs. Is this win. For lamar jackson the baltimore ravens over to kansas city chiefs. This is really a big deal. She would really put a lot of stock into this. It's not a big deal for the ravens per se right the actual team but for lamar jackson. It is a big deal. I'll be very honest with you. So it isn't lamar jackson team. Though i mean no. And that's why i wanna make that. I wanna make the difference. This team over they were lying. Lamar jackson little too much. That's beyond obvious. But the the bigger issue. That i've seen so far this season and so i wanna i wiped out the issue. I wanna give lamar jackson his kudos for getting what he calls that monkey off of this back because he got it done but i will say this though too many throws where he's just doesn't look settled in the pocket and i gotta be with you. Sometimes i've watched him. The season. thought to myself bro. Woah we doing during the off season. Because he's throwing his still at times. Inaccurate he still missing open receivers and he's still making the wrong reads but at the same time that team was still able to the chiefs and for me. That was what was so impressive in team. The defense made enough. Stops john hall. Put his guys in a position to be successful and the thing i liked about it. Most is the chiesa driving. Had the game in hand and it was a defensive player. Not just any defensive player. A rookie makes the play strips. Quite at were to layer and gets his team that victory and what. I love even more about that. After the fourth down were john. Harbaugh looks lamar jackson. No lamar jackson was going to say. Yes and says you wanna go for it. And it's just the i love. John harbor was like dead dude. Percents football that just galvanizes your team for the next time you play them. It's like i'm gonna go for. Y'all wanna beat this team and i love that and that's why i said there's i separate to. It doesn't mean much for the ravens john harbaugh. He's already got it done before. And i know he can get it done. But it means mortar. Lamar jackson knowing if i go against mahomes in the playoffs i could beat hip. I just picture. Aaron rodgers watching that game and then he sees john harbaugh axiom. Do you wanna go for. He raises happier like it was for me. Nc championship game. Like wow. that's what i'm talking about right there. I mean that is wonderful to see when you talk about coach and quarterback relationships. That's kind of relationship. That passionate with homes has andy reid. That's the relationship. Lamar jackson has his coach. That's kinda relationship that drew brees had with shot. That's what tom brady had when he was with bill. Belichick i mean. They trusted indoor. Quebec's bill belichick win fourth-down many times with tom because he trusted that his quarterback was. We'll get it done but it's not just that it's not just the trust to get it done. It's more that the coach understood the situation. Exactly a bit nation aaron rodgers. He may not even been watching anything. You don't trust me. It's like you don't understand the situation so you can't even get to the level of whether or not you trust me as you don't understand the situation ain't no that makes me think of a little upset and i gotta do it. Because he was with the ravens david kelly. So did you remember what he did this past weekend where. The referee said So david you just pick up thirteen yards and third down but they were offsides. So do you want fourth into third and seven day to say you know what because it limited to and then planet. That was just me. If i'm a quarterback situation and the games on the lines like do i trusted do like do i trust george. It in color with their in. John harbour there and he did that i think john harwood slap them like what did he do. What are you doing what are you doing. No one is really upset about it. Because look mad david koita right. Now is a transitional coach. I mean everybody sees it. He's just there to fill in a space if he is able to perform and at a high level. And maybe take about maybe we can keep for a little bit longer but every time he does something like that and you might even making fun of him for that is just certain cultures in the nfl. Who don't understand situation of football. And john harbaugh gets it bill bennett. Check gets it. And when you have costa understands situation of football with a generational quarterback that's when you get extreme success. That's all i'm saying. No i agree with you. A hundred and ten percent. I still think. Aaron rodgers raise his hands up in the air what he saw if you saw that on. Tv is like where. where was that for b. I wish i would've got yet. But going back to lamar jackson and the baltimore ravens beating cancelled cheese. A lot of things that happened fumble like you mentioned that was big time because cheese were driving and it looked the game might be enhanced for them and then after that fumble that was it Baltimore take control and win that game. And i saw things that you saw. I still saw some in accuracy from lamar jackson. I still saw him kind of hesitate in the pocket a little bit. He still are dynamic dynamic quarterback but there's a lot of things i still see out of him that make me believe if they get to the play offs where the stakes are going to be a little bit higher. Can he do it without using his legs as much and i. I still don't know if he can do that. 'cause padua home showed us. He's still patchy with homes in that game in the last two games. So we'll see what happens from here on out but I think it was a big deal for lamar jackson and to beat them. They had to beat them to prove him so that they can beat that team and they did it. The monkey's off lamar jackson's back. All right good show good. Show this stuff. You brought the energy today. I don't know where that matthew stafford stuff came from. I think that's you got we. We gotta go back and tapes on your side. We see we had the receipts bro. More about it there was there and you're can a virtual receipts in your head. I don't know where that came from.

These are all things that tight ends need to know how to do tim. Tebow is only six to two hundred and forty two hundred and thirty pounds saying so even if you both up to forty to fifty.

Hey no dallas man. that's dollars. That's where i was in texas wherever houston vs dallas rivalry so he refuses to mention the dallas dallas by name. So that's where i would leave. Not at brown. Of course i waste management area years of. I didn't know what i'm not gonna as dallas is we're not going to entertain the houston this houston. Hey it's over. You were in los angeles know where you're you're have been on dallas backup all so full of something right now phenomenal one. Chris is not available today. He's a very very hard working man. Don't fear he'll be back one day eventually he'll be back. He's not all the podcasts that he'll be back she's hard at work so we're going to run this two men team me and big lows like stockton and malone jordan pins or you know who gonna do that. Two men team today selfish. Y'all get ready to be really really good all right. Let's do we have a good show. Still get some headline right now. Headline is it's time all right. So russell westbrook breaks oscar robertson's all time nba record for the most career triple doubles in the fourth quarter against the atlanta hawks. Russell westbrook recorded his tenth rebounded night end to end. He finished the one twenty five one twenty four loss to hawks with a team high. Twenty eight points twenty one assists in thirteen rebounds that gave him his one hundred. Eighty two career triple double pasquin apt oscar robertson's nba record of one hundred eighty one. That's one of those records when you look at it. Initially thought man. It's hard for anybody to break. But russell westbrook has been a man on a mission and now he's not just russell westbrook. He's indeed mr triple double. I like that. I liked that. Mr triple double. I'm i'm proud of a man it it's The guy puts in work every single game every single day. He comes in. He just lays out on the court. So it's a it's a very exciting thing at that's a record. Probably will never be broken got. He's got plenty left and there's plenty more triple double succumb right. Oh and it didn't take very long to overtake that. Especially when he's been doing over the last few years so they gonna come. They will come in and bundles right. So congratulations to russell. Westbrook is now lisi. Nba with the most triple doubles. We will talk about him more later on this. Show all right billy. Sanders suffered his first loss of his career. On saturday night are brutal. Injury led to a corner stoppage before tonight's round of his super middleweight. Title unification bout with kaneko alvarez. Saunders has some success in the middle portion to fight the cannella. Just stop that in. The eighth round would vicious devastating uppercut ever cut lead to immediate swelling. In saunders i. He said to undergo surgery for that for a fracture but saunas the as this kind of moving slick kind of style that i thought my give canal a little bit of problems but at the end of the whole fight canal came through huge system more technical fighter and he was very precisely uppercut. Looks that i would hate to get caught one of those but it was canals night. He kept all three titles. No that's that's that's an awesome thing for me. He's got a great fighter vague. Very very savvy so graduates to and Very unfortunate entity for his opponent likable boxer. That's never gonna happen alright. Jaylen brown alfred season with a torn ligament in his left wrist. He was by far having his best season averaging career high twenty four points and then points on forty eight point four shooting. What is due for the chances of the boston. Celtics moving forward now. Most of the pressure's gonna be strictly on jayson tatum so we will see what happens with that boston celtic team. They look like a team. That could quite possibly dangerous go into the playoffs but now low for me personally. I don't see them having any chance of going to the finals. So rapper j. Cole is set to play for one club in basketball. African league making his debut during a match between rwanda patriot bbc and nigeria rivers. Hooper's which be take place on may sixteenth j. cole. I saw some footage him playing basketball. He lives he has a little bit of game. Kinda excited about this man. He's going over there to start playing basketball in the new league over in africa. I of want to see this while. He's playing with nigeria. Well that'd be picky bad cool. I think that's cool You know basketball becoming You know something a pretty big deal in africa. So that's pretty cool man. Get get a worldwide artists like that. You know to bring more attention to the movie. Great from nip play in the first half then performed during halftime and cotin. The second half of the game now will be the same. That's also all right so michael jordan. Kobe bryant into the nemeth memorial basketball hall of fame. I'm very seeing this. We did talk about this in a previous episode before as well. When it was announced michael jordan will be inducted into the hall of fame. But i can't wait to see that michael jordan alleged. Kobe bryant a legend. Long live the black mamba. I cannot wait to see. Michael jordan inducted into the hall of fame. He had a pretty good emotional speech during his Memorial i can't wait to see that he has a very good story. He put out about his last test match that he got from colby and his show kobe's competitive nature in that text. Message all right so the nfl schedule is not out yet is going to be out tonight. We're recording during the time. Where they're going to release a whole schedule but week one of the nfl schedule is out a couple interesting games on tap their low which was a game interest you the most in week one mayor. No first game of the season in the jaguars. Get out of here. Neither norma snyder on my radar even guest their cowboys. The dallas cowboys the tampa. Bay buccaneers. Do you can you believe that you know why why you know you have to make money on the first game of the season. Grammy time the cowboys. Some money grabbing. Guess what you got ta. You got tom brady. And the returning champion tampa. Bay buccaneers is s. Going to be a great draw. Yeah that'd be an interesting game interesting match up you know. Let's see if there's any super bowl hangover which. I highly doubt it's going to happen him. Tom brady angle. Allow it to happen but that'd be great that'd be great rating. I get it i get. It's now the dallas cowboys probably had their best opportunity being superbowl contenders in the first game. This season wants a middle of the season goes around. We know have no chance to again that that will happen to understand. I get it. Here's an interesting thing though. Tom brady's Undefeated his cowboys. And so yeah so. Let's see if that's a trend that continues of. Wow yeah. i'm pretty sure. I have to look that up one day. I want to see tom. Brady's record against every team in the nfl. i think gotta look it up one day other. He's he's beaten every team. And i think he's being eighteen. See to record. His record is against every team. I wanna see this all winning records shelby. Highly entertaining undefeated. They've only played what five times right. But i mean look at as you know his division. He's prolly undefeated against the jets or stuff like that. But you know in that. Division or your. They've snuck some gains. That's true might be surprised. Yeah yeah you're right. Every time i think about what you said about dow's cowboy. I think i look at i think a russell westbrook little baby rock baby thing. That's why i think tom brady does. Every time he sees the cowboys gala. My son's man terrible all right so a couple of games we want to interest me. The cleveland browns went to the kansas city. Chiefs dash be pretty interesting. Let's see the cleveland. Browns can't continue. The momentum of last year wants to play off success against the kansas city chiefs unmitigated interests me. The green bay packers against new orleans. Saints will aaron rodgers be the quarterback of the green bay packers and is james winston ready to take the reins from drew brees so that should be very very interesting another thing. That's happening week. One of the nfl schedule. There will not be a double header. Monday night for the first time since two thousand and six. So we're gonna get one game. Believe that game was me. I think as the ravens up against the loss Vegas raiders coca. So the won't be double header for the first time since two thousand and six unfortunate which well that was headlines. Let's move on into the main topic of our podcast episode episode. One thirteen tim. Tebow is going to sign with the jacksonville. Jaguars are is expected to sign with the jacksonville. Jaguars now's a quarterback. But as a tight end tim tebow hasn't played a regular season game since two thousand twelve where he was still playing quarterback in this season he played for the jets he threw eight passes and ran for one hundred and two yards. He spent time in training camp with the patriots and eagles but never played another regular season. Game tim tebow now. Thirty three is attempting to start a new position and trying to evolve as a tight end. Now there's been a lot of talk about this. Tim tebow gain in an opportunity after not being league for so long to play football. And i actually posted something on instagram on a new channel sports instagram to see if it was fair our file what is happening. As far as him given the opportunity to play football again. And we're still in the middle of it. Were still in the middle of the poll. But i want you know what the poll is right now. As far as it being fair or foul so forty three percent say is fair. Fifty seven percents as file so that basically means that most people do not think that it is fair for tim. T will begin. It's another opportunity to play in the league will know what do you think about this. Wh what's your opinion on this I disagree with that. I like to know why people think it's unfair. I can give you some quotes. i'll let you There's a there's a senator. Actually you know that was broached by this topic because people were saying. It's unfair that you know. He gets a chance to get signed with colin kaepernick. You still and he says that well he he's not diminish someone's assess because of these situations right so why why poop who wants him tibo because of cabinet situation. You know two completely different situations you have suspended. Players players have gotten into trouble with the law and things like that had multiple chances. You have players that have had substance abuse issues. I mean look at josh gordon right He's had multiple multiple instances if tibo was able to try out and he's maintained his fitness level and he's in football shape or whatnot. He's able to get signed a more palatable because for me any athlete that is at thirty three which is ancient in old in. Nfl you know the has a chance still make a team. Hey more power to you. So i don't see any issues with it now. It's it's a for me i mean. How many times are we going to see tim. Tebow try out the sport. You know what. I mean soccer basketball. I mean what else i'm saying. I mean he's tried baseball. He's in all these different things man but he's he's looking. He's looking to have some staying power somewhere. So let's let's save tight end is gonna is gonna work. Should've tried off running back. So i don't know we'll see i think he's going to be more. So he's what takes him. Hill isn't a look at him. Yeah which which is appropriate multidimensional type of player. Like okay makes sense. It's interesting jacksonville. Is not that great team so why not are not that. I totally huge now got quite career. My bro- chris. This is big low here. i will never be. That was but look when you look at what's happening right. A named as being brought up a lot is colin kaepernick So people are saying. Wait a minute tim. Tebow can get opportunity to play in the league in bacall colin kaepernick can't so what does pretty much tells you. Basically what this host nation is. Is that sometimes when you move on in the organization are in a job or a career is not necessarily about the skills that you have. It's about who you know. And because he knows urban meyer and because he such a legend in florida He's given this opportunity to play football again right now. I don't think look now. I'm gonna be going both ways on one end the spectrum. I think it is fair because we all know who was given an opportunity to do something but wasn't quite qualified to do that because they knew somebody because someone just happened to say a man. I got this offer out here if you want to try it out. I'll give me opportunity to do it. And they were able to Advance or opportunity. Yeah so on that. Side of the spectrum. I i think is fair. The earth side of the spectrum. I think as far because we talk about people like colin kaepernick. who was they. Were not given the opportunity to get back into the league because of because of what he did because he knelt so he was pretty much black ball out of the nfl and he was not given opportunity. Get back in. But you know there's a lot that goes to the colin kaepernick situation. We don't want the. I don't want to too much into that. But speaking on tim tebow i think in a nutshell i think is is fair. Because is about who he knew he knew urban meyer. He was given an opportunity to get back into the league. So i don't think it's that big of a deal but when you compare it to what colin kaepernick is going through right now but like. I said there's a lot that goes into a colin cabinet goes going through. I think he was given a couple of our twenties. Maybe to get back into the league but maybe the timing just wasn't right from the get back in. So if you're talking about that comparison between tim tebow and colin kaepernick allowed to goes into the. I agree my thing was if you want to compare colin kaepernick and other quarterbacks that have had opportunities. I think that's that's a much fairer argument I mean there. There's when it when it comes to backup quarterbacks and things like that and competition. I mean an. Nfl has been signed me last year with the pandemic and all the injuries are going. There were going on then fell. Assigning players that were the football team. Signed a guy that was I was working for in working for an insurance agency or something like that. You know so. They're signing guys off the street. Con cabinet is still sitting there too. We'll talk about that aspect fine. We'll talk about tim. Tebow making position switch not even playing quarterback the guy's playing tied in right so i think that's that's a different you know that's a different whole different situation. He's coming in the guy's not known for being an avid throw in accurate thrower of the football. He just did not play the position very well. The gaza tremendous athlete less chime in a position. That better utilizes skills so yeah. I don't think there's a comparison there. Okay let's talk about We can easily same question okay. Is it fair. That colin kaepernick doesn't get signed with the dow's cowboy signed all. That's another situation right. There often hadn't played five years. Yeah i think by that time. Yeah it's been about the same time or eight years or whatnot for collin. I forgot how long it's been colin. So so we can make those kind of comparisons but is completely different situation. I i i think. I don't think it's i don't think was really related. Yeah so let me let me tell you what dez bryant tweeted out about the situation so tibo hasn't played nfl game in damn near a decade. And it's that simple. No hate but you gotta be kidding me. There was a lot. More said was far as dez. Bryant had to say and he he kind of broke it down a little bit more deaths what he said initially and so after people started responding to that he posted something else and this is what he had to say. Regarding my last post i knew it would cause controversy and that was just to get your attention. This is not a slight at tibo. I'm headed for tibo and wanted to see everyone succeed. I'm saying to wake up and see what goes on and take care of yours. Pay attention to what goes on around us and deeper between the lines. This is why preach unity in black society and taking care of us lifting. Each other is more in getting together. Running routes and casualty linking up is about truly connecting to build a to build and create controlling what we can control and building our community look as far as. What does brian had to say. I could not agree with him. Moore alright because what this was was was tim. Tibo taken advantage of opportunity because he knew urban meyer now. I don't know how hard it would have been for calling cabinet to get back into the league but there were some african americans. Some blacks in certain positions that could have helped colin cabinet. Get back into the league now. Like i said that's jewish mccowan. Cabinet was a very different situation and so even if there was someone in power had the opportunity to give colin kaepernick the afternoon to get back in. It might not have been as easy just saying. Hey come on. I'm gonna put you back into the nfl because it was just. It was a different situation right. But i totally does. Brian had to say because one. This is not necessarily to me about tim. Tebow right. I not tvos a very polarizing figure and whenever something have tim tebow people are gonna say something this about him. Taking advantage opportunity because urban meyer was there if urban meyer is not involved in this he's not playing in point blank period. Now and. What does brian saying that. Sometimes we need to as community and black folks help each other out as well. You see what's happening there. We gotta do the same thing And once again we're talking about who he knows urban meyer. The state of florida is not like he went to the miami dolphins because the miami dolphins were not pay. Tim tebow can probably almost guarantee you that they wouldn't have picked him up. He went to the jacksonville. Jaguars you talking about an organization that devoid of of of. There's no national appeal. They don't make a lot of money as a franchise. There's not a lot going on in jacksonville so you you're gonna go to the lowest of the low no offence. You're going to go to the lowest of the low when you're talking about the totem pole of of organizations and nfl. And yeah you made it. What do you make it with the new york giants. We made it with the cleveland browns. How about the cincinnati bengals cincinnati cincinnati. Bengals right now. Have a little bit more steam than the jacksonville. Jaguars says what had happened in terms of. What does brian had the same. An agreement what he says. My thing is though would colin cabinet. He has not spoken very much since everything has happened. I think if you really wanted to try out because it is going to reach out to teams like that at least had tryouts right and opportunity. What two years ago you know. What the nfl that that whole situation which is bust He didn't wanna do it their way and you know for him they were just making it. You know a a media circus or whatnot. That from what i understand. He's still practicing throwing things like that. But i don't know that we don't know how much effort is being made on from his side to reach out the teams for tryouts at least for tryout right We just don't know what's going on with the situation so at this point as far as i'm concerned he may not want to play anymore. We just don't know we're not hearing from. I haven't been to his social media pages to really see. You know how what the act of efforts are looking like if you go to barnes page. He's still running routes practicing getting better things like that. He's still you know doing things that shows. Hey i'm at some point still wanna play. He hasn't retired. We just don't know what's going on with with with colin kaepernick. An a-plus there reached a settlement. What was it. Like fifty million dollars or something. Like that i remember. I don't remember the number but the reached a settlement would just don't know the details of what's going on with that so there's a lot of speculation i'd rather he said you spoke out more said something i mean i understand. Allow your actions to kind of speak for itself but we just. There's not a lot of information. Come from his side for us to really understand what's really going on. So i'll we'd just love to speculate right now is a bowl. Quebec's are similar. Because of how polarizing they are but it just a different situation as far as being able to get back into this league. You know just different Let me tell you what might golick had to tweet about. Hoses relation honestly. Don't understand tim. Tiba move it all. Eight years out of football never played a position. Kenny block can catch. Is this the way. Urban is range. Show let's not forget. Urban is ridiculous. Hire a former was strength coach which lasted about a day. So this is involved. Well in the eyes of many people in urban meyer to coaches. Well you start here with the jacksonville. Jaguars you're trying to build a culture here and you're trying to get players to respect you. Some people are saying. Hey man this is not the way to get the players. Respect your over here hiring somebody that you personally that you like. That's your boy and you give him a position to compete as a tight in when someone else can be taken up position to try to compete because you think he's good for the locker room. So this money ruben. A lot of people to wrong way as far as urban meyer to coach. I heard that is what. I heard that the whole organization split about this general about tim. Tebow playing for the jacksonville jaguars so interesting too as well once again. This is this is jacksonville for you. This this is a team you go. Jackson this is this is jacksonville. What do you expect right. What do you expect from baghdad organizations. What do you expect right. If i'm the owner. I'm like there's there's players that actually play the position that we know can catch we know can block the no the office of system or know the ins and outs at nfl and a current that can occupy whether it's a practical opposition or whatever it is clearly this is a practice squad body move or whatever just to kinda see what he's going to do. Great leader okay. Whatever okay i understand that. But and what i'm about to say has nothing to do with tim. Tebow man or him as a player. Anything like that. When you're just talking about well thought out executed moves. Urban meyer is making. Bum moves okay. You started out with the strength and conditioning coach. What with all the controversy. If you're going to do this and continue adding controversies. Why not just go ahead. And try out colin kaepernick while we're at it since you're in the media fire. Let's go ahead and trial common cabinet. Go ahead and bring all the attention to you. Anyway matter of fact why are you doing that is probably gonna put more. Ct stands anyway and then go ahead and bring up tv ratings. Let's do that if you want to do it if you want if you want to continue making this and what's again. This is no slight to these two players colin kaepernick and before continue mechanism media circus. Go ahead and go all in and bring all the attention to you. You might as well go ahead benefit while you're at it. Why stop there whilst opportunity book candidate route you at all on this. I know sometimes we disagree about things. But i can't disagree with you with. This reminds me of dion sanders was saying about. Hey spe- see you know players were drafted from. Abc school at all the turn the entire draft. And that's something that kind of rubbed the wrong way. But i mean look man. That's something i'd like to talk about. That's that's interesting It's a lot to talk about But i mean within. I mean it's goes into this whole thing. Visit races definitely involved in right. We're both you know. African american men so we we see the side of it right. That's all we talked about this. Brian had to say about host. Shu-shen this is. This is more to me about us doing what we need to do for us. Just like does brian said. Because i don't wanna hate on. Tim tebow forgetting opportunity. Because we all know people that have gotten opportunities and we're not a hundred percent qualified opportunity. Got us all right. So i cannot hate on tim tebow because he got an opportunity to play in the league. I'm not hating you broken. I really not. That's why it is fair. He knows urban meyer. He knows weakness up into the jacksonville. He's a legendary in florida right. And sometimes when you're a legend somewhere you get more opportunities other people point blank period. I'm not someone at the end of spectrum. The special i'm talking about where whereas kind of foul is because we feel like there are african-american ballers that don't get the same opportunities and that starts with us as african americans we got to give those opportunities out but it's hard i'm i'm i'm i completely disagree with that Between every tween smith pacman jones desktop. So so many. I'd that's not accurate. I think at this point and we talk about not having opportunities aside we talk about. Listen i talk about all the no. I think there have been plenty of opportunities given and black men get more and more and more chances. They get a lot of chances. That new right to into right. Yeah we we can agree disagree on that right. So i'm just calling cab if i'm somewhat colin kaepernick specifically. I just named you three players that they have a checkered checkered history. Talking about law and things like that. So colin kaplan and we talk about him standing up for just and things like that and that being unfair and that kind of thing. I think he. He's he's he's alone in that more when it comes to black people getting opportunities in the nfl. Let's let's to for a second. Let's dive onto ray rice situation okay. Because he didn't get opportunity at a desk. That's okay. i'm not saying you should've but others say he gap to the when he was done when when when you have a situation that as that was pretty grotesque he no doubt no right so we have the visual of that situation. And i'm pretty sure he's done everything you get the bra you did it and you just going to have to go. I said it was on for because it was. The situation was so grotesque exact and it was put on camera to where you kinda fell. Ill yeah you're not getting opportunity. Nfl you're not going to happen. So i will agree with you. I just think that the picture the everybody's seen their solely seen calling cabinet In situation because michael vick he went to jail for the dogfighting scandal and he got several opportunities afterwards as well right so i just think that one of see people see tim. Tebow games opportunity. They automatically they're focused cooks o'connor cabinet. He gets opportunity. How can opportunity. Let me give you one more little quote necessarily a quote but let me say what shannon sharpe had to say about the situation tim t-boz. Nfl return is because these because of privilege benefits of being straight white evangelical mail so pretty strong words there from shannon sharpe. He always has pretty strong opinions about things. I just can. If i'm being very very honest man. Come on bro. You on a new channel sports pockets. All you gotta do is be honest. I think this the look located right now. I think if the phenomenon was here he go speak for chris. I think this is what he would say. Why are we spending so much energy. Because i understand i understand that but when i saw the i've got the espn app on my phone and it makes the espn you know sound right. I looked at it looked at the headlines. Tim tebow signs with the jacksonville jacksonville. Jaguars i looked at it. I said this is some clown. And i'll just moved off from the outside. This is going to be a practice squad move. And he's going to be there as a body to help set the stage at the culture allow you know the players and organization understand. Hey this is how urban by wants things done understand his guy who have great relationship you know build a culture and be out. The guy hasn't caught we don't know if he can catch we don't know if he can run. Routes we all know any of these things right. We don't know if he can block right. We don't know if he can pick up blitzes. These are all things that tight ends need to know how to do tim. Tebow is only six to two hundred and forty two hundred and thirty pounds. You understand what i'm saying. So even if you both up to two forty to fifty he still going to be a very tiny tight end and nfl is he going to be able to block or double team and block. Aaron donald no. So what are we talking about it. We're talking about it because is tibo just just like your questioning. Why we're talking about it on the other end of spectrum. You don't think that people are going to be buying tickets. Because tim tebow is play on their football team. We just talked about him being legend in florida. This is par reason why it reminds doing this. Like you know what this is my first year. Here i wanna create a buzz tip. Tibo come over here can make you a tight end. We're gonna sow some seats in jacksonville. That's why he's doing it. He he is a polarizing figure. He just did. This is what happens with polarizing. Feeders you don't think who else can i think. That's that's polarizing that a kind of a johnny manziel saying in kind of not as much as ten. Well he's he's way below there. But if johnny manziel goes to texas ain't him he is a legend there right if they hired him to be a coast. They're they're going to sell. Some tickets is 'cause they hired coast there. Okay and that's what's happening here. What tim tebow and once again. Because the jacksonville jaguars because it won't make a hotdog difference if it was with the dallas cowboys if it was the san francisco forty niners. He just be another body. Another person oh. Tim tebow was here. What the heck is he doing here because the jacksonville jaguars and once again they need to sell tickets. The knee more fans in the stands and then he had a higher tv ratings. They made that move. That's it I agree. I could tell by looking at your face. You're your this subject so let's just. Let's just move from tinted okay. I don't want to upset you more than half of low. Because he's starting to get hot over less move on. Let's talk some nba basketball shall we. We talked about russell westbrook earlier in the show. He becomes the all time. Triple double leader with one. Hundred eighty two triple doubles. And now we're gonna compare him to someone else. Another point guard desk. Tearing up in the league steph curry steph. Kearlier steph curry steph curry earlier. This year became golden state warriors. Record point score steph curry said the nba record april for three pointers in a calendar month with eighty five. Threes steph curry became the first player in nba history. Ace thirty three or older to score thirty points more in eleven straight games so both of these men. Both of these point guards are lying up for their respective teams to washington wizards and the golden state warriors. I have a couple of questions that we're going to ask you here today. Though the first question is this who's having the better season is it. Mr triple double our schiff curry individually or should we add the team component to it however you invasion the both both teams or on the edge. The playoffs right. You're washington wizards attempt. See right now and it goes at words or ac so both teams would be in the play on play in tournament. Both teams as far as the players are concerned both players to replace their kind of leander teams into the playoffs. I do know that russell westbrook does have bradley build as well. Who is gripe behind steph. Curry boris point score. But who's having a better career. It just first comes to my face. Do you see. I wanna ask that question. Who's having better career the bitter season. So far i would say that this is more or less. Just what what am i say. That is May goes to say for both of them. Steph is doing what he does and russell westbrook is what he does. He's mr triple double so you know. Every night he goes he's gonna triple double is going to play his heart out thing. Is this with steph. Curry does dudes. He's a laser beam. You know with buckets in the buck is gonna win from anywhere everywhere and he can single dismantle your team just because you could just shoot from anywhere you know whereas it's not necessarily the same for us when it comes to both of these players steph is more likely going to help you win games especially at the end of his close because he's just gonna shoot that ball from anywhere right so who's having a better say it's guessing around. I'm trying to find myself from tom. Maybe give you some taj. Sure i'll let you. I'll tell you who's having a better season who's having a better season right now and it is a tough. It is tough. i'll give it. I'll give it alone but sometimes it life man you just gotta give me an answer that will give you the answer now. This is not a knock on the person now. I'm not saying it's having a better season. But i think steph curry. I think steph curry is having a better season. I think that look man what russell westbrook is doing rallies triple doubles. It is amazing. And he's been doing it for some years now as far as avid all triple doubles and we just talked about the record about oscar robertson that we thought it'd be record that will never be beaten but steph curry shooting has been unbelievable and he's been big bringing some records as well and i look at where the golden state warriors are as far as playoff runs and their number eight seed so they have a little bit of a better opportunity to get to the playoffs in washington. Wizards do so for me. Personally it does go to also who you have on your team. I just mentioned bradley. Beal bradley beal's out there helping russell westbrook as well. And i know that doesn't take into account completely what they're doing it individuals. What russell westbrook is doing this. Individual is amazing. Guess but are have the give after the slightest of edged razor thin low. I give the razor thin edge to steph curry. You just mentioned it. He can shoot the ball anywhere on. The basketball court is lethal with that show. I mean you have to start guardians man from half court it even then he might shoot hid from three four lintz of the court. So steph curry. What he's doing. He's revolutionized the game as usual. And i have to give them the slight edge right now as far as having the better season right now this i mean low. You don't understand is razor. That the edge. I'm giving them to him and he's he's been mentioned for. Mvp this year. And i don't know why russ has been mentioned. Mvp as much. I've heard some things about people saying that. He's being hated on our that. He's being disrespected. As not so more. So much of a disrespect is just that you know the championships come into account. We're russell westbrook doesn't mean anything right now. We're seeing this season right now. I get dislike as steph curry so long roundabout way previously had to ask myself. Okay if russell westbrook averaged ten points a game ten rebounds and tennis that's triple double right. Let's say that was his triple double throughout the season. How great an impact is that for. His team is that mvp level formulas no but that's also adding to his His count with triple doubles right. So for me. My answer is also steph curry. And i think that margin for me is actually much bigger when you look at the impact on the game steph. Curry has a greater impact on the game. He has a greater impact on the leave. The fact that the warriors are in the playoff hunt whether the aceita they're playing in the in the what do you call it to play in tournament. Play tournament that. That's going to scare a lot of teams. You understand yoga. Oh absolutely absolutely. You don't wanna see that steph already done. And he's been doing it He's performed in the playoffs. The guy's got rings so yeah why wouldn't he have the be having a better season. I think you'd think is wider martin. I think it's a wider margin. I think it's a wider margin. The fact that he singlehandedly can destroy some of these playoff teams right now because of steph curry and where the ball is going at any point in time for me. That's that's huge. You have the game plan a lot more. I feel four steph curry and things you can do and even with that you can't you can't stop them right. You can set up your defense have to play full court press. And he's you know. Shoot a from a past the a half court line if he wants to still make it and still have a great impact on the game. So yeah for me. Man i'm gonna steph curry on this So let me give you. Russell westbrook status season. He's averaging twenty two points. Eleven rebounds and eleven assists a game liberals are to twelve Rebounds and twelve assists. A game steph. Curry is averaging thirty. Two points a game. Five point five rebounds and five point seven. Assist a game so i think it's close at the clip that he scoring is unbelievable. Russell westbrook is now scoring at that same clip. But you look at what he's doing as far as rebounding the ball and passing the ball and he's doubling up. What steph curry is doing. But there's a lot of is a lot of Well looking forward to where there's a lot of us when we can score like that and where he can score from because we had a previous podcast. Where we're talking about steph curry and could quite possibly the greatest point guard of all time and he is not a point guard at you. Look at ideally like you know a a raise on rondo a russell. Westbrook a chris. Paul that distributes the ball and for still tastes the ball throughout the basketball roy but because of the way he spaces because we shoots he gives other player's opportunity to score will not him necessarily passing them the ball. So that's what makes him so great as a point guard. So that's where for me especially for this season. What he's doing as far as shooting that three pointer spacing out the floor he gets a slight edge. Low monkeypox saying razor thin. 'cause 'cause i love russ i level russ's doing rushed for me is almost an ideal point guard. When i create a point guard on touquet. I played a lot when i played two k. Creating any he basically russell westbrook someone. I can drive. To the whole dunk finish distributes. The ball can also get rebounds. Three point shot is not that great. But it's good enough to scare you. That's kind of guy create onto k. And i think he's almost the ideal point guard but so for the scary three point shot right right. Look stephen a smith when he had his critique on russell westbrook way back when he critiqued history point shot he thought the history point shot should be a lot better if his three point shot with. At least i forget the percentage but at least a little bit better he would be if not more garbling. He is right now but i can't. I can't hold that gets ross. Ross having a phenomenal phenomenal year. And i i give the razor thin edge steph curry now better season. Who's better point guard. I think we already asked to ivory asked a question right now to give s steph curry as well as as being the better point garden just because of the way he spaces the floor and threat of him having a basketball in his hands. What that does for other players onto floors or giving them free shots. So i still look at steph. Curry is being the better point guard. But look man russ's killing. I really hate to make this comparison because russ is definitely killing. And i feel like russ's career to his detriment. He's never really had a a real team built around him. He just has some people. Don't hint it ear here in there when he was with kevin durant. That's not the russ racine right now. that was russ evolving into the russys. Now if russell westbrook this russell westbrook was playing with kevin durant right now. Oh now be something special to watch but is unfortunate. But i don't think these had that complete team built around him. Paul george attempt to all relative. Isn't it ten but it wasn't it wasn't that team was not necessarily built around russell westbrook they did not mesh will him and paul george I didn't see that he needs to have a lot of shooters around him so that when he patriots he gets easy dishes he makes it look easy right now with knives easy as it could be if he had that team built around him so he needs to be on the team with shooters writer. Yeah you know point blank shirts. Yeah him and actually james harden could a worked out. It's just a system that they're running. D'antoni i i know this system with those do any the daily trade one year and you're like oh poor done good. Well i mean. I'm i'm definitely not pooh-poohing on alr- us i. I don't think it gets an respect. Plus with all the all the other stuff going on about him not making other people better look. The guy comes ready to play an. I appreciate that the guy scores. The points you know distributes the ball you know. We may question whether he makes those around him better or whatnot. But you know for me. I mean steph is also the better better point guard absolutely all right. Guess not to miss debate about that at least for right now all right so let's move on the somewhat our last subject which we kind of touched on a little bit as far as the los angeles lakers Should they be worried about going into a play in tournament right now. They are two seven seed in the western conference. Lebron james was supposed to be coming back against houston. But that's going to be delayed. He's gonna be back. They won a big time game against new york knicks. The tonight to kind of push forward to that succeed. But i think the team should be worried Me and chris talked about this a little bit on afro vibe tv. On new channel sports show but delors angeles lakers inter injury issues is probably going to be a detriment to them getting to the finals on. Are we talk who we talk about less low. What team was that. Oh member the houston rockets. Oh yeah and they were to sixth seat right. The lowest seat ever to win a championship one of the greatest runs in nba history. Now the lakers who seven seat right now who are going to be more than likely if they don't find a way to get out of the seven through ten seat will be playing the play tournament. They might be looking at where they're going to try to be the lowest seed to ever win a championship now when we talk about these injuries these are injuries that are reoccurring injuries injuries. That don't go away just like that. You know anthony. Davis has the back spasms that's big time. Have you have something. want your back. We we know about this in houston mcgrady. Later on tracy mcgrady's career. He had back issues and those issues would not go away so that is something that's going to be a detriment to them getting back because the more games they play to more likely is one of these issues flare up. Lebron james is ankle injury. And that's another thing ankle injury. There's not go away overnight either so definitely another nagging issue. That's going to continue to hinder him throughout the playoffs. Now i on the tv show. I never bet against lebron james. I won't bet it gets lebron. James tom brady. I won't bet against him but is going to be highly highly difficult for the lakers to make a run to the championship. If they don't find a way to gather this play in tournament even if they do find a way to out plan tournament is still going to be difficult from get through because these injuries are not going to go away. No they're not I don't like back injuries back. Injuries are good. They they linger they stay and and it takes a while to you know i. It took so much maintenance to get to a place where you can play on a consistent and and plans. Seven games in the series is tough on the back with not having too much wrestling between. Let's not forget. Lebron james you still a thirty six year old guy. That needs feet. He needs his legs. And once you get an injury like that you you need all the time that you you know that you can get To recover we're already see that he opted to take a day versus playing. I think I think tonight or whatnot because you need more time the rest so this this is going to be tough. This is going to be a situation where they could be. You know the lowest seed ever to you know to win a championship or whatnot. I mean as possible if we didn't have any of these injury concerns but these are legitimate real world concerns that are going on right now and we'll just talking about the warriors being you know in the playoffs in the in the play interplay in tournament. Ego bre these the lakers risk. Not making it right. They are risking not making it. This is huge man. This is a big. I mean you went from. This is a team that went from the fourth seed. They're now currently the seventy right. I think at one point. They would like to see now. They were not. They weren't point probably third at the most. Okay you're talking about a seven c right now Two games above the golden state warriors. you know so. And and that's the situation where i think it's one and donor or been so that anybody says i don't care what lebron says about firing somebody. I don't care what anybody says about the plane tournament. I love it. I love it. Essentially lesser say. This season ended. Today the lakers and the warriors will be playing a game and a winner would be descendancy. Let me explain it. Let's see the lakers. Lost right okay. They will lose. Golden state will be the seven seat. So the lakers played a winner of the memphis. Grizzlies antonio spurs for eight spot. I mean that's just that's must see tv. So i've been one of the advocates against it because i thought it was stupid and it just didn't make any and it just didn't make any sense to give teams at in necessarily deserve it Who hadn't done the work throughout the season however however this is what i think about the lakers right. Now you know that that You know backing them. Old western movies remember old yeller yet. Remember all the other great old yeller you know saying the song and all that stuff you know loved the kids could you know little boy loved them and all that stuff old yeller had rabies and And back then. There wasn't a cure for rabies. So one no rabies shot or anything like that right. oh yeller. i'm spoiling right now. So what happens. Is you know kit. A dog has rabies foaming at the mouth. You know goes into tax. You know some some mega kids or another dog or whatever bay or whatnot gets rabies and guess what the kid's dad does ola take the dog. Rabies didn't find. That didn't have you know. What did your absolutely right. He found cured rabies by taking the dog out to the pasture and taking the dog out. That was a cure as immediate cure. So that's what. I think what needs to happen right. Now with the lakers. Okay third. They're injured they keep the continue to fall and it might be time for the golden state warriors to exactly and just go in the season and allow these guys arrests in rehab and come back next year. Do because right. Now you've got a thirty six year old. Lebron james would feed a heart. You gotta back ya back issues with Anthony davis write this team right now just needs wrestling recovery. I've been saying. I'm not interested. Nor do i would be concerned. If the lakers didn't win the championship this year. You just won a championship five months ago. You're saying right. This is already a really grueling season. Right these guys. Haven't you're playing a game every other night this is. This is a tough year you when your championship rest. Recover come back next year. I'm not interested in the lakers winning the championship this year. so golden. Stay go ahead and take your business your business so right now as we speak yeah. I'm for the plan tournament. I'm four in fact as fun unite. Wouldn't it be interesting to see. What golden state. How many how many chances. How many opportunities can golden state ruin for somebody else. I like to see. What golden state and steph curry will do against utah. Let's see what they do if they get a chance to play the la clippers or the denver nuggets. That'll be really interesting. Well i mean that's part of the hole playoff run. Yeah you pretty much answered. My my next question was. Because i'm i'm asking you. Taking the lakers are the field to go to the finals. And you're pretty much saying you take an feel right now. I'm telling everybody so for the lakers. Wow if once again. If lebron james healthy completely weaned got no ankle issues foot issues and unlike the he can run up down quarter full speed without taking time off. I'm cool with it. If any davis davis back issues don't flare up. He didn't have the time on important game. And you're you're let's say the lakers are three and three and then guess what In the play in a playoff series. And anthony davis. Because it's back in florida you're gonna leave it to thirty six year old brown a man. I never bet the brown with bad ankles. He did say that he'll never be one hundred percent again. It's going to be tough to on even ninety percent with the situation here. So that's true bro. I'll have to go with the on discipline. Based on what. I'm seeing i will have to go with the field as well. I like the clippers. I like the phoenix suns. I like those teams as far as what. They would do the chemistry if they're playing a series against the lakers. I don't see lakers advancing. If they're not healthy. I just can't see it and it's not just about being healthy is about getting that chemistry back. The clippers have chemistry now. They're building chemistry because their team is healthy. Phoenix's be building more chemistry because they're team is healthy right. The lakers have to bill chemistry one another because they're hurt right now they can't play where another okay so when it comes playoff time is going to be too late to build their chemistry. You know if any one of these teams in playoff contention. I'm looking my chops. i'm like. I'm i'm playing opportunity. Yeah because if you want if you want to beat the lakers over you're gonna have to be physical with these guys. These guys are injured. Your star players injured. I'm you don't have chemistry We don't know what the what the how shape these guys are in terms of. Just being fully able to plan elite at elite level playing physical. What you guys in all physical. I might not be the best player. But i'm coming in. And put my body on your. You're gonna work for every single shot every single drive. And i'm gonna take it's gonna take a toll on you so by the time we get so game four and five you. You've you've run out of gas. Oh it should be interesting. i. I'll go into the field on this one but just because of is not a hundred percent was he gets a hundred percent. I have every single right to change my mind. Because like i said i don't bet against the branch games all right good stuff load brought. You brought the heat today. Talking about taking the lakers out back to pass your so steph. Curry can shoot that three. Take out if this is your first time listening to this podcast or even it's not your first time. This is podcast. Make sure you subscribe all right. We do this for fans.

Every saturday a new episode downloads. The of so we have was magnificent. I think we're talking about. Ben simmons gerald little bit down the as well we're also joined by big. Low is not here but you know shout the big low. He will be back eventually. Shall we get into show. chris. Paul chris all right. So let's start off with headlines. It's time or jared first headline josh gordon signs with the kansas city chiefs. This will be his belief fourteen that he join After being reinstated Four to six times back in january of this year What do you think about josh. Gordon joining the cassidy chiefs. I mean i'm happy for josh. And he's back in the league and the chiefs discontinued to add speed. All of the field. Mccall hardman robinson. The cheetah tarik hill. Best tight end in the game. And travis kelsey just a loaded team to just added another speedster. Yeah they're going to have weapons over the field with josh going there. He's actually on the practice squad initially by. We do expect him at some point in the season to be the actual team player that has signed with a football team Richard sherman has decided to sign with. Tammy buccaneers tom. Brady mccall you after. Tom brady gives you a call. You can't turn that down. And he decided that was the best opportunity for him to join the tampa bay buccaneers. I'm pretty hard formed as taken us opportunity. So that's what was going on with him in the off season. But i'm really happy. Sherman has found a team with a tabby buccaneers. Yeah i'm having for richard sherman he He had a kind of a tumultuous off season but now he's in a position where he's with the buccaneers any on a team. That needs it. And that's really what's cool You wash i practice. You could see him. Coaching the bbc's there are a lot of young db's on eighteen. The good ones are injured. The ones who are the good ones the more than more. Nfl experience so they bring in a guy. Like richard sherman who has an nfl experience can also help out just the whole db group and help them out a lot. Magritte that agra the heavy warm Really ancient see what he's able to do to help that books team out. On the defensive side of the football also and headlines the nba has set out the rules forty unvaccinated players is pretty much saying sort of rules they had last year social distancing limited contact vaccinated players and stuff like that You have an opinion on this as far as the nba new rules towards the unvaccinated players. Chris we all see this coming. This was coming for some time. Now the nfl's nfl the nba has been really pushing for their flares to get vaccinated so you could tell that there was going to be some repercussions for the players have chosen not to most notably with know that cat. Kyrie irving and andrew wiggins are not vaccinate less because in those states california. New york If you're not vaccinated you can't play home game so it was really interesting to see what happened for those two guys in particular. What happens if they because you don't get game checks when you're out because the the number one. I don't think either players are going to be hurting. They're they both me millions upon millions of dollars in india but not being there for your team for home games that that could be a problem. I don't think either when it's gonna go that long without getting vaccinated or some type of exemption is given to them because this right now the situation is it can't work out. You can't miss half of the season because you're not vaccinated and you're missing home games employs. You're not just missing home games whenever you so for example whenever the nets go out to the west coast and play. The warriors lakers clippers. Mccamley can't play there either. So be a problem now. I'm pretty sure it's gonna figure stuff out sometime during the season but that has been headlines. Now let's get into the meat of our show. Let's do top-five shall we chris. This is the tap presented five talk channels sports so the nfl started. Where a bunch of nfl teams yakking for position. And they're trying to sort things out A lot of teams have been playing really really good football. What we're gonna do right now. Our new channel sports top five an nfl teams going into week four hour. Let's start christner five going to give you a five or a quick my number five. I wanted to start off with a team. That's perfect There may be teams. That listener may say hi. Open this team at number five. But i'm very impressed by what i've seen. I'm going with my guy. Chucky and the l. a. raiders. They're three and i'm proud of the man coming into the season looking at their schedule. They played the ravens in week one even though they were at home i just didn't anticipate them winnipeg game. And then the matter that they wanted and overtime was dope and then they went another overtime game last week versus the dolphins who fighting back and finding back with jacoby percent and they beat the steelers who let's be real. That was impressive in week. Two but at this moment. I don't know what the steelers are. But i'm very proud and impressed with the raiders. Derek carr i mean derek carr. He's started off this season really well. And then they have darren waller who is in my opinion the second best time in in the nfl. He's right up there with elite ones. You think mark andrews you think of travis kelsey dan walters right. They're very good player. The defensive in playing good and then also jacobs has been injured. He played in week one. He was injured in this week's to and we could three. He is a bell. Carbon ran back a guy that they're going to give the ball to when he's healthy. I really like the raiders. Yeah i can enrich you on that one. I think the raiders are playing really good football right now. They're clicking on all senators. Derek carr is clean at an elite level and he has some weapons around him that he can really utilize we. All talk about chucky chucky. Really good head coach. He gets the absolute best out of his players. The question with the raiders right now is candidate consistently play at a high level. Can they continue to be teams. That are supposed to be because we've had previous season before where they kind of got off to good starts played really well to middle season. But then somehow someway. They've fallen off the wagon and they were able to make their final push into the playoffs. I do believe that we're looking at a playoff team here right now. They're three and they lead it division the kenzees. She's actually last in his division. But kennedy continue to gain momentum and continue play. Well i think they can but they have to prove it i right. So they're number. Five number four might be a little bit surprised some people but i have put them in there. I'm very impressed with footballer. Playing the dallas cowboys. I know low will be very happy to hear me say that. He'll probably had one knowing big low as is the best team in the league. But that prescott is playing and the lead level right the comeback player of the year. That's already locked. That is going to be that chris guy. I don't care what anybody says over the race is over. It is nobody else is raised. That crest got is running against himself right for him to come back with the from the horrific injury and to play as well. He's playing right now is magnificent. I mean i'm seeing him. Guiltless progressions staying solid in the pocket showing some great pray presents some great footwork and he's finding the players you when he makes a mistake. It's like not a big deal. He knows what he made a mistake. Eight discontinues on from there and the running game has been pretty impressive to me to as well i like the way to run the ball With ezekiel elliott and tony parlor to in to it at monster. And they can continue to do that. That's going to be a weapon that they have that other teams have not really found a way to consistently. Do we look at teams like tampa bay green bay arizona. The rams they don't really have that power running attack that they do the only team i can look at this probably san francisco that that's like a sin. They really do continuing basis but right now dallas has everything and then they arguably have the the best one two punch as far as wide receivers are concerned. When you have a more cooper on one side and you have laminate aside. I mean come on it. I mean argument essay arguing mountains put on the the jerry zebra on comeback player brochure. They had their ground. Impound number ground on jersey. Never never but. I have to give props when his deserved. The team is playing well on the defensive side of the ball. That's where you might have a little bit of questions but they're playing with confidence. They're out there Executed game plant at note. They wanna do they. Don't look confused on a defensive side. And they're playing solid. They have kind of been but don't know break kind of thing going on with that defense. I like dallas cowboys. I haven't been before okay. I understand kabul fan. You really appreciate your team all right so number three for me. Look at you now number. Three for me is this is going to be very controversial. I don't care because i've been impressed with this player and this team since last season and they've come this season and they've really carried forward and i'm going to shock you and i don't care mine number. Three team is the l. a. Chargers larry la versus. I oh charges charges man and it's because of justin herbert just in herbert During the off season I think it was patrick. Mahomes is playing around a golf. Somebody said are you worried about just in herbert charges. He said i believe it. When i see it well. The charges show them and we three n n. kansas city and after the game patrick mahomes asked about it was like well. I believe that you have to believe it. Justin herbert is a good quarterback. And you talk about one two punch You have really. Who i believe is probably might be the most underrated player in the nfl and keenan allen. You might be the most underrated blair in the nfl and probably top five in my life just as far as players whose he's gonna stop playing. Football people are gonna say. Who's that guy. Put up all those numbers. Who was he and his keillor. Keenan alan phenomenal player. Mike williams on the other side is finally coming into his own as the number one. Pick out of clemson so big fan of that almost ground with ecuador as well and then bosa on the defensive side of the football. I mean the way they got after. Patrick mahomes was incredible. Both was able to do it. The whole front four is able to do it and then on top of that you wanna talk about another player in the nfl. Who is completely underrated. dermal james. he's back he's healthy. No one can stop almost gronk. Nobody can stop tribes kelsey. But you gotta be able to slow down a little bit one on one. And he's one of those players that can do that at times and it's incredible lead. That charge your seaman. Charges team plays loud heart They almost emulating justin herbert. Anyways playing i can just tell the connection. He has with key now and every time he does a good pasquin and just see him over. He pointed at herber says good. Pass or something within israel. Yes you play with a quarterback. Who's that talented and they get you open is great and i i saw. I don't know who the last game are. what a game. It was but keen. Allen was making some tough catches bro. Like he was he was so it was all but he was still able to man up and get to catches. I like what. I'm seeing there to east criminally underrated. We will see. We'll see an mike. Williams has been bolland. I mean finally. He's violent you know. I mean you talk about both of our receivers. I just talked about the wire series in dallas that arguably to can be the best combination and football mike williams. Who's in the receiver. There who number one it allen come on close in an allen has been doing this for years. I know about this season this season. I think you can argue that. Michael number one wire receiver. There you can. I'm is definitely keenan number two on the list. I know how much you love this team. Chris i i know you love their quarterback and you just love this franchise in general. The buffalo bills led by josh allen. While i think that they are number two team right now in the league in our power rankings yes. They had a done in the first week of the season. There's a pittsburgh steelers but they bounce back. In their next two games completely dismantling their opponents their defense is playing really really good. Josh allen is showing you why he could be considered as an mvp candidate. I like what i've seen over there in buffalo. I know continue to continue to get better and go into the playoffs. I had mature right now. So what you've essentially done is you. You have made our top five. Top five. Basically illegitimate bro. Because me because you you know without this aim buffalo's five does yet. You chose to put josh allen and number two over the chargers charge or not a top five team right now. They're good but they're not welcome because we're doing power rankings when they're not power ranking right now and i i'll be honest with you on a neutral field and pick the chargers pick the bills. I'm taking the better quarterback and i'm taking justin herbert. That's what i'm taking the argument right. Papa you fill out you say buffalo's now top five team. Yes that's exactly what you're exactly what. I'm saying ukraine. Would they didn't week. One was a stinger. So i'm does not Yeah but number is obvious. I think it's ended debate. Here is the la rams. They looked phenomenal. They actually have the real and began a date. He's the real. Mvp and matt staffer. Who looks like he's head and shoulders going to win it so far. Three games in so we have a small sample size. But the rams look amazing jirga. Jared goff is long gone thing. I worry about him no more. And that's why you watch that video. Wichita mcvay renna back to the locker room. He was like bra. Let me give back there. Because he knows he doesn't have to do that but she was running saying i'm good. I'm a runaway slave. He was like so excited. Like i'm good is Med team is loaded loaded. And you're talking about ride. Receiver core abba another good wide receiver core there cooper cup robber. Woods hasn't gotten the past as he he needs but you also have jefferson there. You have The deep threat was his name. Sean jackson there. And then tyler. There's a tight end. They're just loaded. Man betsy ms absolutely loaded definitely definitely the number one team right now in the nfl. Yeah i agree with you. One hundred ten percent I was looking forward to playing against terry buccaneers. And they pretty much they gained wasn't as close as the score indicated. All right they there yet. They went in there and they totally dominated but they're not playing the regular season they're playing to get into the playoffs and they're playing to dominate in the playoffs. All they have to do is keep their key players healthy and into the playoffs and then we can see they can make a playoff run to rubio. They are unsuitable. Pick matt away in case you guys know. La rams and then my other will pick before bill swept number two so the new channel sports top-five goldman a picture wanted and two so far chris. So this ginola okay. That that's fine. Row week three. I don't know why you celebrate. Celebrate the game. I disabled for the game on the rams are going to beat the buccaneers in the regular season. That didn't surprise me that they'd beat them. In regular season they can play. Offs tuber daycare. We'll see we'll see. We'll see i think the casey cheese right. That's a team that we have in named for good reason. They cannot stop turning the ball over but this early season would you have expected them not to be a top five team. I know that that was surprising. And it's not just that of the worst team record wise in the afc west. We'll definitely didn't see that coming Is this bear surprise in which is why do have the chargers and the raiders so high. The chargers play the chiefs. The raiders happened yet. But just when you look at the both of those teams charges in the raiders. The quarterback plays been exceptional. We think about the afc thing about patrick mahomes. But so far miss season derek carr and just herbert have been right there as far as their their level of play. So very impressed by those two days so tab as a top five team. What team are you taking out. Put tampa artist told you buffalo bills taking the buffalo bills man. I gotta charges a surcharges. I they boys look. He had a smile on. His face is almost as took his lally sunny. I smacked cantona floor or better yet. You know you in the club. I don't go to it. You step on. Somebody's you dancing. Popping popeye's year jay's is like this is every podcast you got a while out sub housing way and that's what you do it right. Everybody who knows me knows i. There's no way you'll see any kind of star any guy unless is astros best that the way anyway you clown but honorable mention for top five. I gotta put the baltimore ravens in the conversation. Lamar jackson and the baltimore. Ravens finally beat the candidate cheese and they've been playing pretty good football. You know Tucker he can hit from anywhere sixty six yard field. Go to give them the win last week. That is ridiculous and the manner in which you went in drama everywhere it hits. The goalpost bows up angles in. It's just crazy but that team is good too. I gotta give them some props an nfc side. We talked about kyla moore. And what he's doing he is definitely. Mvp candidate arizona cardinals playing pretty well so they could very easily be mentioned as a top five football team as well yeah. I agree the only thing. I'd like to mention this. I don't think top tunezine. But i do want to mention them because they are undefeated and that is a demo broncos. Look at the broncos The teams they have played so far has a collective total of is only nine so. I don't think they're a good team or at least we don't know yet. They literally no one bit. Yeah they being they'd literally literally But i am very very happy for teddy bridgewater. Everything people say about him. In that organization they wanna play for him. The clay harder for him. I'm happy for him because after the horrific horrific injury he's been coming back coming back and this seems like a real opportunity for him to potentially guided team to the playoffs. Would ever gonna find out a lot more about that. Dinner bronco team in the upcoming weeks. my money is they're gonna come back down to earth eventually. Yes i am. Happy for tape bridgewater days play on a team that that wants to be there and be the starting quarterback you know because he's he's has them some injuries in the past and trim to get over that and be playing good football. I am very very happy to see that. So new channels sports top-five who had an a five. Las vegas raiders number four. We had a dallas cowboys number three. We took out the chargers and put in the tampa bay bucks. So they're number three number two the buffalo bills and then one. The los angeles raiders. That has been our top all right. So let's stay with football and let's talk about distorting to everybody's talking about in the football world. Tom brady is making his return to foxborough to go. Up against bill belichick and the new england patriots bill bill. Check not give. Tom brady everything he wanted. In new england. So tom brady chunk. The deuce and went to tampa bay built a team around him. Got a b. to join his crew and went on to win a championship now. Bill belichick is saying you know whatever you know. I i don't care too much about it but bill belichick has made a big big mistake. I think this is a definitely a big time. Flaw in bill belichick. Sometimes you just have to take a backseat to your stars and be like. Hey what do you want. You know because stars. Are you going to say star. Mega stars don't grow on trees right. Tom brady is in the same category. Would michael jordan. Lebron james patrick mahomes. These are megastars. that don't grow on trees and one day. Bill butler realize he's part as wakeup in a cold sweat in the middle of the night and he was like damn what i'd already done that i think he's done it yet because bill. Burr seems like the stubborn type. There's not going to realize the mistake that he's made until years and years and years down the line but i guarantee not guarantee. I'm being the over that once. Tom brady scores his first touchdown. He's gonna point over to. Bill belching just point is going to be awkward point to. He's going to be point at looking at bill. Burr is going to be looking around at. Who's he pointed you a check. That's so. I can't wait to see that game. When tom brady makes his triumphant return to new england and in crowd is going to be cheering for for tom. Brady be a home game for tom. Brady bill burr will be around like the. Am still here. Today widow care. Tom brady championship exactly. And that's what it's about is gonna be a good game that's for sure. I'm definitely excited about it. Honestly when we're talking about gangs were circling coming into the season for me. This was number one two three four five six seven. And because you got it because of history it's all of it because the history man histories there and a guy you didn't mention and we're going to mention his grunk goddess comes back to well in the background. Nobody's really mentioned him. He's coming back. And what i really love about this game more than anything is. It's on sunday night football so the whole country is watching and not just that. It's the stadium that he basically built right at night. He's coming back and you know he's going to score touchdowns and all that and it's interesting you mention. What is he going to do. I don't think he's going to be as overt as you said and bill bennett jack. I don't think he's going to do that. I think it's more of they're going to be beating them. At least at least in his brain they're gonna be beaten them so bad he may do some. But i'll say this. 'cause i've said this from the very jumper. There is no way no way. No how bill belichick is losing a game in foxboro to tom brady after all the has happened after all the reports. Come out and after. Tom brady going to tampa bay in winning the super bowl bill belichick. You heard it here. First is going to win this game by hook or by crook and i'll tell you straight up matt jones. You better be ready bro. Because he's not playing. Well i'm telling you. I'm gonna see a grown man slapped on national television litz. I'd do not embarrassed me that that's a that's a whole lot of process of thinking. Do not embarrassment actually have the patriots win this game. Because i i just bill. Belichick is going to prove to the world that his defense his team. His way of thinking was the right way. And i'm telling you man they're going to win this game. Hey man you know. We don't customers podcast but for me properly give you what bill burgess would be saying to to different parts of his team. He's be talking to matt. Jones say kosovo. This is a big game taga to is defense. He's talking to the divas. They if you have to hurt her. I don't care. Do not let him embarrassed us in new england. Okay you're going to see a different side of bill belichick in this game and i think you might see a different side of tom brady as well. We talk about. How classy tom brady years. All of the stuff we might see a straight up classless. Tom brady you buy you can imagine he does obscene thing. Ever he scores a touchdown he goes the millfield at partic- taking a piss on the logo. Obviously gronk doing something really you know. Just wow yeah. I can see. I can see wrongdoing. Just what remember when randy moss mooned the oh green bay ingredient in. I think it was joe bucks at that. Is the most something like bat wrongdoing. Something like that in the fans is eat it up and let it but essentially what we have here is. We have tom brady. And his allies rolling into the stadium. I quit essentially to that chick that you let get away. She breaks up with you. Whatever the case may be she comes back with her new and now our new dude bigger than you but he got more money than you is coming into your house. You can hear him coming from mile away. 'cause he's got a banging stereo system in his car and that's essentially what's happened here tom. Brady's coming back with shiny new ring on his finger. Casinos what six hunger. I got number seven with the bucks. So it's has every single thing every piece of drama you would want for football fans for those who love new janice spores. It's like a soap opera for us. Verno like a lot of people would like to soap operas. And i got nothing against that but this is a soap opera for me. This is the climax of a soap opera. And i am beyond excited. I am so excited. I second. i'm excited to you. Know to win thing you missed in your analogy right there as far as the girlfriend find that new boyfriend. What all this your re. The car is the the money you can all retail despite. He's more well endowed than you. Are everything owner. Though he walked to your house you're the crowd that's the kids. That's what that's what. Matt is your kid etiquette says. I love you that he watch i. Father gives me my gifts. He got ren- even though he did. I even have a minute as tom brady. Fads there you go Yeah so that's basically what it's gonna be really fun to watch. The stuff we mentioned is probably going to happen. None of it is going to be born. Gay tom brady going up and down to feel scoring at will now. Tom brady is really sick. And i mean really insane in the brain he might not even play will purpose and wait till that last drive. Look at look bill to say now it take down the field with once they can live scored at last touchdown. The crowd is going wild. Do eaglet he's looking at bill. Belichick that will be hilarious. S savage. right there yeah. That is the definition of sash from if that happens from now on you know. Harry says looking to dictionaries. You'll were savage yushu seatown. Brady's favors smile either way. Whatever happened even if it's a boring game. I'm very very excited to see that game. I'm excited to see the game too. I just wanna see reactions. I do want to see how the crowd reacts. We're not going to react but uranium they're gonna chant the man's name you know even if scores in new england that's going to be a big deal to k- know he's going to spike. The ball is going to be all over the place. Now in new england was somehow able this was able to pull off the victory. You're seeing bill checking many super bowls. His the meaner has always been pretty much say. Oh yeah guys. I'm happy we won. We played well but if they win this game you're going to see a different bill. He's gonna be jumping up a down on the sidelines pumping his fist. he's going to be rally measure jones's helmet. That's how you can play. Paul is needed. I remember when he was playing matt patricia. And in the lines that smug smile own. that's happening. I can see the game and try to hold in john. That's what i've been see jonah. Hold on let it out. because he can't contain. His excitement is going to be very interesting to watch. I can't wait so sunday night. Football right so football. May i cannot wait all right. We have wasted time on tom. Brady's returned to new england chris. Nfl season young season allowed. Things have happened. What is your take so far on this young. Nfl season. Do you have a hot take do you have you know D agree with me now. That josh allen is gonna be the mvp d. Do you see how good he is. I mean. Do you want to apologize me. Well what do you wanna talk about right. Now it's one. I absolutely can't apologize because mvp the nfl looks to be mass stafford. But i will say this my biggest take. I don't think he's even hot take. Is we have a newly quarterback and his name justin herbert. He's established himself. He can make every single throw aglet. He's established himself as an elite quarterback. I do. I do believe you can't become elite until you have lead performances in the playoffs. And essentially saying i expect this team to make the plows with the way they performed because of those two good receivers and i think one of them is great and keenan allen and where to talk about that. And then i guess the bigger takeaway in saying that. We have a new quarterback duel. We always talk about the mar- jackson and mahomes and potentially your guy and pat mahomes but just herbert's right there just in herbert is right there with pat mahomes. No he doesn't have flashing nece. No he doesn't looks exciting but he gets it done. And he's only in a second season and it's not just that the bigger part of my take is is that we're talking about a little bit earlier the chiefs of the worst team in that division. Now do i believe they actually are the worst but their record right now. Says that the worst team and you look at the raiders who we had a top five. We look at the chargers who i had a top five. I know you disagreed. But they're still there. And i think there can be a legitimate argument for them being there. And then you look at. The raiders is not the right as the broncos who are undefeated yes. They haven't played. The team is one game but still even within their own division. They're going to have to start winning some games. they're already lost on the road to the chargers. Now all of a sudden those division games for the chiefs become big deals. So now you're planning the broncos who already had hot start now they feel they can beat you. You gotta shut down. You're gonna play the raiders. They're gonna feel like they can beat you. You gotta shut that down. Their season looks like is going to be exponentially harder than i thought it was going to be and that is a surprise to me but the players. No there's no way the misapply there's no way there's no way they better get on track now because like you said there is scheduled does get harder. You're going to play a lot of teams down the stretch within the next three or four games span. They better get above. Five hundred are gonna be very very difficult for me personally to see them going to offs especially because they're making mistakes football field. It's not like they're playing real good and it's been Four game david being themselves so they have to solve that problem. I said they can make that run down the stretch because they're scheduled. This gets harder now as far as my take on season. I wanna talk about this team because we have not talked about this team all podcast and this has been a team that has been for the past couple of years mentioned as that team. That's going to take that next. Step get to the playoffs. Beat the cheese and find a way to a super bowl. You know what i'm talking about. Chris i think you do i. I really don't know the cleveland browns. The browns you're talking about the bills. I was like you really knowing people will tell what the bills the way i do. People talk about cleveland like each year. Like okay this is to be the year. You're going to step it up now. The cleveland browns are to one. They beat the texans. And i can't remember who else they be but looked south. Put it that way Baker mayfield has not let the world on fire. But he hasn't made those big time mistakes either that he's made in the past. The defense look solid the running game. We wanted it. As baru average on average i mean. He's he's been all right on average but yeah looking at the team right now and where they stand they guy get on track soon because they're there two and one but they're gonna have some really tough opponents down the line and i think that they don't start to have it start to make it click. Soon they're not mentally capable of ganim so's out of a hole. That is where i've seen before. So i just wanted to touch on clean around a little bit because that's a team that people talk about year-in-year-out as being that teen that's going to take that next step and i i haven't seen it yet. I only busy amazon. It's a young season though. They remind me of attacks during the match shaab years where everyone around the league knew they were good and everybody was just waiting for them to finally put a season together. And have it all come to happen. It did technically happen for the texans. They had a twelve and four season or something of that nature. And i think something similar can happen for the brown so i think it it is it is appropriate. That at least mentioned them. And i'm glad you did And they have all the tools there they have the best running game. Nfl by a country mile is neither close. Nick saban wet and was his name. West are phenomenal Just an absolutely. I said west is names. Cream hunt on a wagon west from bro. Mike agreement an amazing they got. Oh odell beckham junior back the deepens. This amazing yeah. They have everything to be great saying and one more take. I have on this young. Nfl season russell. Wilson seattle seahawks. They better get going quick to take real. It's going to be my take gonna be not so much. Russell wilson. I was going to mention russell. Wilson and i was going to mention matt ryan and i was gonna say if the season continues to go the ways looking. They both may be in different places at the end of season. Yeah rosa wasn't our team matt ryan at his home. So i don't know varieties playing terrible matt. Ryan is not glinka football. I don't think i. I'll be honest with you. There is some teams. Can use matt ryan because may ryan is. He's languishing their atlanta. Is i mean come on. Let's say he knows he does have a chance of winning. He knows he has no chance. He's a plane. I'm sorry when you hit a plane bat since last year row isn't that he's been he's i think he's not good not good. I think if you put them in a situation similar to what we saw we've seen what matthew it i think people saying. Oh matt we did call him any is for no no no no. He's done that all like you're trying to give you a chips this way. No you don't want it. i don't want it. I don't want any part of matt ryan. That's not the poop on his career. He's had a really good career. He has been a you. Know top five top three quarterback at some point in his career but right now i just haven't seen he is played really bad football on either side of the equation. I bring a russell wilson and seattle. Because they had all this not all of it. 'cause his kind of less than what. We saw with an rogers and other quarterbacks but he had a kind of but heading with organization he wanted more involvement into offense. He went to pass the ball on which he has. But it has not Resulted in the wins that they wanted. They should have beat tennessee. Say that he should have been partic- they let them hang around in that game Derrick henry went off in that game and then they. They lost the minnesota last week. I still think there's hope for that team but even notice hope for that team. They're not playing for hope. They're played as if they're a team that should be mentioned a super bowl contenders and right now. I just don't see that i. I think they might sneak into the playoffs again. And maybe lose in the first round. That's what i'm seeing right now. But based on everything that's been going on so far. I think that you don't press the panic button yet. I it's early for a lot of teams. You don't press that panic button yet. But i do think that your hand is above it and that we venture early early on you might depress that panic button for seattle seahawks. The only take you head. Chris amazon you know we try to do which to bring bring it. You know. I i carry it in you know i do something wrong. Being caused pippen bro. I have no brother me wrong. Call either. They all know your michael jordan coach. You tend to coach well. That's why penn was on the bench. Mad we're gonna get. Because i knew you go there. I'll let you add. I really did set. I do the law and give you your credit related. I i don't know if this is your absolute i. I'm listening to the one and only any and phenomenal one. Chris under new sports podcasts.

"We're going to give you our takes on the NBA restart so far old Beckham Junior's says, the NFL seizures should be cancelled. We also talk about Antonio Brown and whether he'll the NFL again and if so which team. I look at this top two will be to Seattle seahawks and Green Bay Packers I. think that both teams well, not both teams Seattle a particular day needed dietrich where I. Ever. Teen. You'd mentioned that might be in a category, Tennessee titans sexual as they need a number one, the Jit wide receiver, but if you look at a team that's trying to. Get over that Hump and try to get that one piece to maybe get their look devante of he's been good air arrives in the past couple of years. The. Blount onto other side that would refrigerate Aaron Rodgers career. And I I would love to see Aaron Rodgers Antonio Brown? WHO's into the new channels podcast? Tall podcasts.

I'm doing great man celebrated his thirty third. Birthday. Bro Or. Filling good got. Tired. On. A lot going on this weekend man but I'm a good. Good. Good. Good good. All the way across me. God I can't believe every every time, but the cow man personal is. Representative as opposed to. UPS Right. What's up man? You're doing good under a wonderful wonderful man that welcome. got. Me Got me hyped today. We're on I, do live. Up. Thank y'all joining them but we gotta give a shout out to Laker nation. A cowboy nations wrote as we always do you ready to do that yet? No no no. Not Going to happen. That's never gonNA happen what that's not gonNA happen. Eventually will he's going to have to. I can't what I already have rockets and my my takes. I don't have side pieces. I always did listen, but it did happen. If takes keep going the way they're going they might not have teaming you. You'll be forced to come and cheer for the Dallas Cowboys Onboard. No If you don't accept us as happy now. Giving it up late I cannot do it. Might my main chick one out she doesn't blow. Out. So what we're going to do right now. Is We are going to talk about. The NBA restart. The basketball season has started in the bubble. and. It's been wonderful to watch for me. Personally I've enjoyed every single moment of it. I did not know how much I miss. Basketball. Until. We started watching me restarting the bubble and I'm just I'm loving it. They're they're out. They're out there playing basketball trae digit game last night. Yeah I did I did. I am a Damian Lillard Fan and I love the. Competition between Dame Russell Westbrook I. Love the battle the Zeros I I love it I. Do you know rocket span they've already proven to me that they are a legit basketball team and I mean you trey we on the we'd all say. We're not. On the same page, the intro for sure absolutely and the rocket thing directed scary but I think they're size is what's proven them wrong right now and and that's going to hurt. You can't get out rebounded by twenty nine rebounds and and win like they did against the bucks. It's just not going to happen that somehow someway they're they're finding a way to win games shot up to the Houston Rockets But you know you have some low key teams out they like Indian Pacers that are making big noise right now mass shout out to them as well. This, whole bubble thing is just been the experience itself has been better than I thought to me. I never realized that I mean unless I'm just me ask with you unless you were watching the game and it was in the. Staple Center were you really looking for the people in stands like no only in staples where you really looking to see in the stars that were there whether it was mayweather or Nicholson a or you know the Kardashians are Kanye or Chris Tucker all those people are at Lakers Games, will ferrell if it's other than that. They rarely band into the you hear the crowd noise, but they've Kinda pumped that in but you never really. Yeah. So I don't want it to be like this forever because I do want to go to games and action to, but the NBA's got it. Right like they they they gotta write that one point five or. One point five, hundred, fifty, million that they spent to make this happen they. They got absolutely right and the only way you're looking to see there on the Monitor I think I saw Paul Pierce attended one games and think I'm Chris. Paul. Son was there as well. So you have seen a couple of notable both faces they're in the little video stuff but I mean I've absolutely loved down there every game that I've watched. And One thing I will say as far as take is that you know we've always said that is the Lakers. And the clippers, and then possibly the books and everybody else. I'm thinking I'm starting to change my thought on that I think it is as wide open as it can ever be. Based on what I've seen from the rockets and we talked about the Portland Trailblazers and a couple other teams. I mean. If a team is hot during the series, they can upset anybody else. So I think a lot closer than we think I do I think even coming into this we were going to be. In for a treat, no matter what and we knew that the older teams would kind of start off a little bit sluggish in I. Don't know that we've really seen that as much without the younger teams with the shooter's would come out but the teams that play defense are. Playing pretty well or doing pretty well, and the teams that have people that can create their own shots are the teams that are going to excel When the Lakers come out against the raptors who no one's really talking about people should be talking about because they've had they. Their champions aren't they. I'll give some credit. He's mentioned a couple of times. You know and and we talk about defense. You know one thing that I said previously was that. Well, you know offense is GonNa struggle just because everyone's been off for so long but teams scoring a lot of points. Yeah. I mean look at the Mavericks On rockets game that was one hundred and fifty three to what one forty, nine audience that was oh Absolutely. No defense at all. So teams not playing defense but. Offense is not sporting sputtering at all. You know what? It reminds me 'cause three point for Senate I think the the road taking over one hundred, sixty, three pointers in three game. Three. Games a how many games they played three or four games they played three games. They've taken a hundred and sixty something three points. But what's happening is it reminds me a lot of An. All Star game. The first three quarters, just like you know, balls of the wall like bunch of shooting escort, and then towards the end of the game, we get really really close and we've seen some changes in the final minute or two that you would normally never seen an NBA game like I don't know why. But I think what actually I do have a take on that I, think the reason that we're seeing that is because there isn't advantage there's no crowds there's no pumping up there's no homecourt calls. Only, get at home like I. Don't think you're getting any of that as a boy area very good. The referees like leading like even the the game winner that Devon Booker that was a file that should have been an one. They didn't call it right but had he missed that shot? Would the whistle? Would they have called a file because that was clearly an Amazon and they didn't call it but I think the referees dislike. The let things go that. They would have normally let go or the crowd would have been on the coaches would have been on a more I think they would have been pumped up too much or they would have been. You know I wouldn't say afraid but it you know in the staple center or Toyota Center, they would have made the call whereas in the bubble they're letting her right right doesn't seeing some travels that. It, was a young. The KUPA was on the baseline is three four steps easy for you. UTAH. They're definitely travels go I, think I've seen harden a couple travel calls also does. I, know you. I know you weren't as a bad if you guys instagram I don't know. TRAE calls. James Harden Jimmy for some reason, I don't know why he calls them Jim's nickname Jimmy. Oh. So. Anyway. NBA Season has restarted I want to. Say who are most. WHO's teaser both disappointed in and with teams are kind of surprised a little bit as far as Gophers as far as a team. That's not really surprised for me. But the team I look at as being a team. That is really good. We talked about trump on know if you want to buy them or not. If. We're GONNA talk about I. You know Damian Lillard CJ mccollum Carmelo Anthony especially Carmelo. Anthony. Anthony can continue to produce where he has been producing in these last three games and we've already allude to an impasse podcast. They are going to be a team to be reckoned with. Now of course, they're going to get the eighth seed are possibly at AC that's as high as it can go. So looking at playing the Lakers. Do the Lakers have what it takes to really beat. The trouble is in the first round I. Think they still do but the key to that series would be Carmelo Anthony and how he can play if he can continue to hit big shots which you know I, think that he might be able to do so I really do so if if Then you add Zach Collins and so guys and the Lou power forward it has got Schnur cage to that coming off of. Injury and they're back in the lineup man that polling team is dangerous and S my team right now that not necessarily a surprise but that's a team that has to be reckoned with going into the. Playoffs. Yeah Poor. I mean. I've been telling people way before when they announced the teams that are coming back into the bubble obtaining. If you listen to this, you heard me say the Trailblazers GonNa make the playoffs like our they were going to be very dangerous and I do not want to play them as a Lakers have been a Lakers fan. So I'm curious to see how this is going to pan out This shooters and they can score and Merkich. Collins? Gary Trent Junior who the heck out of nowhere. Yeah, just. WHO. Is this guy? He's just balling out of control, and so they're doing what they need to do to win basketball games and I mean to be honest with you with you know the grizzlies losing their fifth straight gain. We are in like anything happen absolutely anything can happen right now the. The trailblazers are one game out of the AC right now. I don't know if you know this but by the today the Games happened today the jazz are now half a game ahead of the rockets you know for the four spot does I mean they play each other anyway the way that they are but the rockets are literally a half a game in thunder beat the Lakers today. The rockets are possibly move back to the six. which is crazy. was pushed him up against the nuggets and having to play the clippers in the second round but I mean, they're not they're they're creep and man that like it's the parody in the NBA in the period that bubbles created has made it very, very exciting. So whether you are a huge basketball fan or not you got lucky if you're watching this right now because you don't I, don't think we don't. We don't know missy this. We'll see this much action this quickly. And we don't normally get to see so much 'cause. There's so many games televised right now we're really getting a we're we've gotten a treat like this is a treat for us. This is huge agree with you definitely as a treat. But I kinda missions earlier but you know one of the teams that Kinda surprised me right now you can't. You can't go without mentioning Tj warn and the Indiana Pacers. But the Pacers I think are doing what they're supposed to and they're beating bad to mediocre teams right now right now they've played the play the seventy sixers. Depending on how they play that can be a bad mediocre team that beat them the be. Washington. They also be Orlando Now TJ warranted I mean he's talking to town right now fifty three points in the opener thirty, two points against Orlando thirty four points against Washington. Now they're three, zero despite. Demont SA- bonus being out as well. You Know Malcolm Brogdon is back. Then he played played against Orlando from mistaken but you know they're they're they're offense from everybody every game they've had at least four people score and and in double digits a thank the game against Orlando they had six players score at least twenty points So I mean they're taking care of his right now, but they're still have to play the heat twice they have to play the Lakers at the the sons and the rocket. So let's see how far that goes but I mean at three right now they're playing lights out. Yeah. When you talk about teams that are you know making a good? Impression I think you have no choice but to talk about not Toronto Raptors in, it's hard to say that the NBA champions and make it a freshman not many people expected them to be you know three five games back own lost eighteen games and they also arguably one of the best players top to top three players in the NBA right now. That many people take they're playing come in lowry Kyle lowry say what you want and I noticed the regular season calorie is is absolutely balling. But other than that I've got to give a you know a shutout to Chris Paul and the man I don't know I don't know how he didn't work in Houston I think that I'm just being honest. Yeah. I've you know honestly he did work it was just that. Once the I guess you want to say the rivalry between the Golden State warriors kind of died out I. think that's why they got him is clipped to try and get past the warriors and when they couldn't do that. Okay. WE'RE GONNA get up on. Sunday you know there was a so called rift between him and James Harden as well. So that might have been a reason why he lied but I I like Chris Paul here as a rocket there is no way they had a point. I want to say a point two percent chance of making the playoffs coming into the season point two. percent chance of making the me even a four percent. Maybe it was to percent. It was a small percentage to make the playoffs and now are they locked in in the playoffs is really no way. They cannot not make the play there are other in the playoffs but. They're dangerous. They are i. mean they are going to be very very what Chris Paul's been able to get out of Gallinari I mean he's always been good to me but the way he's got gala Nari in Adams, playing together like I don't understand and they finally got a defendant in Rogerson I mean. They're going to be good. I'm just telling you right now they're gonNA be good. They're going to be really good I grew. They could people going to sleep on them but they could easily easily make the Western Conference Finals I. Know You think I'M But I think they can make the. If. The matchup set up correctly for I, definitely agree with you but we've talked about this already the parody right now is so close we talk about your team the Mavericks is we're. Allowed Improv I, I won't do. We talked about Kris. We thought about Kris, opera singers, and Lucas notches possibly blame a top five duo into league if they can do that and actually be that that I could see them possibly making into the western conference finals as well. So I mean all these teams are really close together. Now, I wanNA take it away from the teams that we know they're they're doing. All right. They have the chance to advance ploughs and I WANNA talk about. Some of these teams that have kind of been disappointed when I look at a disappointment I definitely look at the Memphis Grizzlies as being a disappointing right now, they're definitely doing abe seat to ace spot but have they won a game yet? No, you're Owen three. They lost Big Tiger Losses Spurs. That was a big one debts trae as talked about San Antonio Spurs. Being maybe a team that my sneak in there and if they do, I, don't know if they're going to. They're not going to beat the Lakers not that right now but they sneak in, they sneak in but I look at Memphis and Jami rant I thought they were GonNa do a little bit more come into this bubble I'm kind of unnecessary disappointed but. Maybe the stage is weird saying this able to stages is too big from right now. Okay. Okay. I get what you're saying matter and I don't WanNa Poop who longer take Oh, here we go. I want to show like it. Know, but let's be real here The NBA. Knew exactly what they were going to get to their New Orleans Pelicans different. Well, I'm not even going I'm just saying the NBA knew what they were doing right. So let's talk about what they've had to do. The Grizzlies have had to play the trailblazers the Spurs, the Pelicans and the jazz. Right but don't those the three of those teams they knew. That they had to. Put some separation between them if they want to go to the playoffs and the Games where we that cokes. Well the the blazers put one hundred and forty on a defense. We've known Memphis for the longest time you go back to when they zebo. You put up one hundred, forty points. The Spurs put up one, hundred, eight on them the pelicans hundred nine in the jazz put up one hundred and twenty, four against them today. So They haven't had an easy scattered in fact, they have one of the hardest schedules come back into the bubble through in the crazy part is it just doesn't get any better they've got. The thunder who are up by thirteen on Lakers right now. The Raptors. The Celtics and the bucks it's possible. They'll go. Oh Nate. No. But seriously, no. It don't. They go eight with everything that's at stake I just. Got Win some gay bed I. This is how who's going to be. But where does about WHO's been? We're just talk about WHO's bid Demosa point so far go and tell you who's been disappointing new. Orleans is up there for me as well. Also really. Yeah. Yeah. That's probably yeah. I think they've been kind of Wise New Orleans To before they wanted this game against Memphis. So I think that I'm looking at teams that are trying to push to get into the playoffs, Luca, all the teams that are in there already even the rockets and the who who Planer Day I wanna say it was a milwaukee, the rockets replant heart. I mean, the already have a playoff spot locked reasonably matter what position you're going to be an issue looking at matchups. So I don't really you know take into account but when look at the teams that are outside looking in I, expect to see a little bit more effort gone there they're. Not even playing full minutes. And that's not his fault obviously but. Understand what you're saying but the expectation for new, Orleans really wasn't to make the playoffs to play as many games. You can is when as many as you can't I'm not. I'm not tomorrow when the season started right but boards. Going into the restart the NBA, set it up as if they want to see the Pelicans in the playoffs. No but during their schedules, not as hard as as either but even the expert, the quote unquote experts said New Orleans in that mix playoff, right like that. They felt the NBA, set it up to seize ion versus Lebron the in the playoffs. But no one thought that they were GONNA be able to do it because of their continuity and because the way it was the way that it was going down. So I. Don't I don't know if there is big as a surprise I mean disappointment to me I'd like to see them do better. I'm disappointed in the franchise in handlings ion you think that's idiotic like that's just a stupid to me. But when they did what they would do in a normal game situation and play him eight to ten minutes in the fourth quarter, they want I mean, how imagine that? That's exactly what happened and I hate to do this but the team that I'm shocked with the most. Or disappointed in the most because I liked him a Malik the or owner like the team It's the mavericks like I'm really disappointed the Mavericks I mean you can't give up. A hundred and fifty. In, basketball game. They did be I mean they lost the sun's a ball and Devon Booker Day? Should it be the rockets they? Flew that, and what's what was surprising is how they let that game get away that game was over with that rebound covering made with the tip back like that just blew my mind how they made it happen they wound up beating the Kenya pull that one out in overtime. I mean. So we're looking at the mavericks could easily earn three right and I mean and they could three. Now I mean it just take but they've got they should have beat the rockets to the sons on a crazy ending and then they beat the mavericks in overtime. I mean the kings over time but those are all close games but you but what I'm saying is that to get prepared for the play offs and Lucas Drop in thirty twenty in twelve. Yeah. That's what I'm saying what we're seeing who's like that right but we're seeing Luca and Porzingis play play well right but you still have to win game I. I think going into the playoffs if you're going right now you're sitting in the seventy. Clippers in the first round. Absolutely. You GotTa Win these Games, a position yourself to have a fighting chance to gain some chemistry because right now they don't look like to me like they have it. No I agree with you and they're my disappointing teams well. I mean, when you talk about some of the hype that they've had, you know with continuity and all of that and all the play. So having inside the bubble does this is disappointing. Yeah exactly. Right. You know they could easily they should be three. All right. Now the rockets had no business when a game the sons had no business running game they blew thirteen point lease both gangs, and this is where you start talking about the clutch moments. These are the team that seems to winning right now they're playing well in those clutch moments. The Mavericks Right now they're dead last in the NBA in the clutch moments there are two and ten. Get Yeah to intending games decided fi- by five points within five minutes of regulation or overtime. The to intent actually make that to win and twelve right now while with the two losses. Against the rockets and The Phoenix Sons. So I mean yeah. The super disappointing to me right now. Yeah and say what you want to about You know the Lakers Lebron's in history and whatever Oh that doesn't mean nothing right now for them to go out and do the the has beat the brakes off the Lakers. They lost by fifteen, but they could have easy lost by thirty five like it was not. It wasn't even close. They're struggling against the thunder as we speak in their scheduled isn't going to have one of the hardest cousinly. So what they're going through right now at the Lakers, don't get it together I mean to me their disappointment. Maybe lose a game and the game I thought they lose they want. It's no. The rest of these games are not going to be easy down the stretch to have a play the rockets on back to back tomorrow they've got the paces playing out of their mind. They got the nuggets and then they wind up with Qian's. I don't think the lake I mean I'm not excited I'm excited we're bringing the team Portland whose Kinda got like. GOT IT rolling scares. And that's that's why I look at Poland has being A team that I mentioned as a teen that's not surprised but doing what they need to do to get into that final spot. When you look at all either teams one through eight, even though the mavericks have had disappointing moments same thing with the Lakers they already know they're in the playoffs. That's a problem because I don't think you you don't have. It's like. NFL teams, rest players, and we seven sixteen, seventeen you into the playoffs you I mean and what are the playoff games the WHO are the best to five in the bubble, all business and? Seven and so if that's if if that's what the doing like they don't have the they haven't had four months all the didn't have the time to build up the chemistry and stuff like that and a lot of these supposedly the new guy. So I just don't see that being beneficial to teams like the Lakers last night the bucks saw the buck saw the the nets, beat the bucks. The Suns beat the clippers in this. Team as well. The very. Yeah. So. Even. Though you say that sometimes it's human nature you already know you're in the playoffs so you might play a certain away Bundy's saying why I have Memphis in New Orleans as being disappointment to me because they know they had the fight to get into the playoffs right today they have had that mentality going straight so Anthony Davis. I. Think it was Rachel Nichols interviewing him a couple of days ago and he said that he didn't know that they clinched the number one spot after they will not magnum was one his comment was that a coach is probably knew and he said Lebron knows Cobra knows numbers like that like I said it on the so couple times the magic number was would be three you know but at the beat, the clippers was down to one. So we knew that I knew that how do the players know that like are they? Are they having that much fun in the bubble where they just don't care But to me, that means something because it's all based on seating and stuff like that. I don't know that you kind of like what you said I. Think they have so much stuff going on right now whereas before at home, right without the bubble, you're you got at home with their family. They're they're playing ping pong they're going fishing they're plan madden. They're doing also the set that they would normally never do. They don't do that. They may do it on the road and come back home even the road trips shorter they're doing stuff they never do i. don't know if there's focus as they would be if they were at home I really don't I don't think. That's really interesting that you mentioned that because you you would think. So as a detriment to to play, they're getting seems I. We're getting great play points and things like that. We're not getting as focused gameplay on defense. Now at all, not at all think about it think about what the clippers have done the clippers I mean you can't them as a team that's. Disappointing somewhat of, but no one expected them to be in the situation that they're needed so far the clippers were supposed to be one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, they gave up a hundred and three to the Lakers one hundred and three to the pelicans one, hundred, seventeen to the sons. Near the best offensive team in the NBA. I don't know a one of the best. Five. Top six Lakers number three rated defense coming in and they're giving up a gang point like the defensive were everyone thought coming in. The defensive teams would win like that. That doesn't go away right your job shooters in defense. Now it's the exact opposite, right? And that's what thing on my mind I wonder why that is you know is it that there's so much more focus and attention to detail playing defense so that with all these other things that are now becoming distractions that the team's not. Paying and having as much focus to play defin-. Defendant is being played right now on the bubble. Yeah. It's crazy. I don't know I don't know why I really don't know. We'll see what happens going for I. do think we will see defense tighten up once all the scenes are in place and once team's get into the playoffs were definitely GonNa see the defense get a little bit tighter even to gain to rockets played against the lose to last forgotten to lose my mind right now. But also Portland porn he has Portland during the end of the game there was some defense being playoff games. So like you said about the all-star affected the first couple of quarters maybe the author displaying kind of playing basketball but once it gets down to crunch time you can see the defense definitely high no. So we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens. All right. So narrow going to get straight into our next segment channels sports podcasts for this of. All odds with trae. Him In this and the. You got got I ready I'm ready. I'm excited all the while. So excited when I met a man but every time to say when it comes up I get very excited. Got So against. So. You know me I like to Dabble. And and I want you guys know. We, we witness history today. In. Serious yeah. The bubble. The. Guess what team would be a part of it when you were considering odds. The rockets Nell. Team or player a team team team a team so. We it was a talking about odds talking about somebody who either beat the brakes or somebody or somebody who won that probably shouldn't have won. A little bit older upset. Yeah. The Bossa Bucks got upset by the Brooklyn was a Brooklyn. Go very we go. Would you know did you know the nets pulled off the biggest in be upset in twenty seven years? Years Twenty seven years there bucks. You want to know how many points to go how many close eighteen and a half is what it ended up. The bucks were eighteen and a half point favorites. The largest. In the NBA it doesn't that doesn't ton of NBA but it's the largest in be upset in terms of the point spreads since one, thousand, nine, hundred, three. Your Mavericks. Boise I. Pointed to they were nine hundred and a half point underdog against Seattle in early ninety s Seattle team was legit your Mavericks beat them. After being nineteen and a half point underdog. That's there. Since the nineteen ninety-three, we haven't seen anything like that, which is actually pretty interesting. The Nets as you know, wound up pulling off a huge upset against the the bucks Giannis got into his feelings was getting ready to fight somebody in a good ready to. Survive. Very surprising. So some betters actually took the nets strata. So one better wagered six hundred dollars. Six hundred thousand thirteen to one odds thirteen one odds he made seven thousand eight hundred dollars number another better bet four hundred dollars straight, which is an absurd bit. That's an you would never bet on somebody that. But I guess he had faith in them that four hundred dollar bet paid him off five, thousand, two hundred dollars just by doing that the flip side to that at. Some point before the game, the books war minus five. Thousand. Right. So they minus minus. So right member. Yeah. So minus five thousand. So this means that there's no way inhale you're going to lose. So if you're minus five thousand, if you bet five hundred dollars on books, five, hundred dollars you intend. So. If you just knew if you just had a, you had a gut feeling that they're going to win, you could based isn't worth it though five out to win ten dollars wow and people take that because they feel like is big money. So anytime you see four mayweather go to books is because he's going to bet on a heavy favourite and if you put a million dollars, you're going to win two, hundred, thousand or one, hundred, thousand it's almost it's almost as sure of thing, as you could possibly get in and the bucks let people down. which is crazy. So It's never ever assure thing. So necessary go by the odds because if you saw somebody minus five thousand, you wouldn't want to bet on them because like you said like, why would I be? Some people would do that. You got a ton of money you know thousand twenty. But that's good return Messana bad return on your money for night. You know what I mean. So if you're putting in, you know five thousand dollars, you're GonNa win a hundred dollars a night just that could cover four. The bet you make you know because you think there's no way. The bugs are GonNa lose the net and it happened yeah, it happens but. Before we in the segment I wanNA talk about pods that you might. You Might WanNa bet on this weekend actually tomorrow. My Main Man Tiger Woods is. Playing in the first major of the year. Right. Tiger Woods is plus three thousand. So it's not like he's going to win like they don't think he's GonNa win because you're bidding against the field golf's a little bit different because you're not betting against one person being another typically typically your bidding that playing to win. So some of the top players plus thousand like someone top players. So if you thousand you'll get back your one hundred dollars plus a thousand dollars with tiger woods. If you a hundred dollars on tiger woods right now most sports books are forty sites hasn't plus three thousand if Tiger Woods wins. This week. You Win your money back plus three thousand dollars. I've been on. Leader bit on my man, Tiger Woods. Plus Three thousand you might want to. Go, against all odds because the laws tell you not to make that bit because you just you're just taking a chance but I'm telling you right now I put one hundred dollars that won't. Better do. That was. RIDIC-, right. You just like this. Yeah. So Tiger, hope you. You go against all odds and make this work for everybody but that plus three thousand tagging. To do. Good. Stuff trees. Oh. My God. That was good. I'm deadly. Tiger. As I had the opportunity to do so. All right. So can we talk some NFL gentleman? That want to. Absolute. Antonio Brown. NFL Right now. He wants to get back in sometimes decides he wants to retire. He said don't nfl then he goes back and forth because I'm not I WANNA play. So recently said NFL. Come on man. Let's settle this I. WanNa get back I want peace and football. Sam fell hit him with a a game suspension. He will be suspended for the first eight games come abuse coming back. So as soon as a team decides to pick him up, he's going to be suspended for eight games after that. So my question to you guys is. Is Antonio Brown going to be an NFL uniform again and if so? What team will. Be. In. I'LL START OFF I. Hope I hope to see him what the sales tax? Oh I hope to see him with the sales. Reason being is now. Russell. Wilson has no one else but decay metcalf to about. Him, I'M Not Quite. Great, you know A. Receiver that goes long in catches with deep balls but I mean, it's decay McCaffrey and everybody else. Okay. Tire Walk. But. The another good team would benefit. Him would be the forty niners. I think that'll be good. So let's take a look at the receivers that are on the forty niners right now. You've got deebo. Samuel you've got Kendrick born Guy Brandon a euch, those you starting receivers. So Antonio Brown. Easily becomes the best receiver on the forty niners too easily easily right Let's talk about the Tennessee. Titans now Tennessee has a better receiving group but right now you're looking at Aj Brown core, Davis and Adam Humphreys once again, Tonio Brown becomes the best receiver on that team dream scenario. I am at my chops right now dream scenario. Green Bay packers. Actually stolen my style to that's the only place. He's go. Yeah. Those are my top. My top two are Green Bay packers and the Seattle seahawks he's shown to Seattle. He's GonNa go to Green Bay why do you think? Well. If you guys listen to this show, no one ever traces up and it's pretty much a fargo, the two teams he's going to go to. You go first now I'll tell you the to those are my two teams I. Look at his top two will be the Seattle seahawks and Green Bay. Packers I think that both teams will not both teams Seattle a particular they need a deep trip right and every teen you've mentioned that might be a category Tennessee Titans Sexual Fernandez they need a number one legit why receiver but. If, you're looking at a team that's trying to get over that hump and try to get that one piece to maybe get there. He looked at devante atoms. He's been good for Aaron Rodgers in the past couple of years. But if you add Tony Brown on the other side that would reverberate and Rogers career pretty much and I, I would love to see an Rogers Antonio Brown. I WANNA, see there's a one a and as a one be mark the tate, write it down take a picture I don't give up. I'm telling you. The there's two teams he's going to go play for one is the team both you mentioned everyone thought they were going to draft receiver in the first round the tricked everybody drafted up traded up. Got Love and and Roger Stern quarterback the only other team that, Antonio. Brown will an my mind will suit up for our none other than the Pittsburgh steelers. I guarantee you they bring that man back. They know how to deal with them. They know what to expect. Big Ben and him have already got got their stuff out of the way him and Mike Tomlin Tomlin knows how to handle him because if you think about it if Antonio Brown didn't catch another pass, he should be in the hall of fame. Period. He should be in the pro football hall of fame if he does not catch another pass in the NFL in he. Should be a steeler I guarantee I promise you the packers better get busy and they better just suck it up for these eight games because if they don't take him. He will go back compliment Judy Schuster and they will be a force to be reckoned with again in in a AFC I'm just I'm telling so I I honestly believe it will be one of those teams and that's IT I. Don't think anybody else that you can stand a chance because I think it would be It would be so vindicating for him to go back to Pittsburgh and make it right he has to and I think, and now he could win super bowl to me. I, think he could win the Super Bowl with the packers I'm just being honest with you and I I think that or get to the Super Bowl would that be vindicating? Be Him walking back to the steelers with his tail tucked toys let he would be but I think he owes it to the steeler nation I, think he owes it to Big Ben I. Think you apologized pinch. But I think he owes it to them like he could be like you know what it'd be vindicating. I onto my bad I got it. I made it right kind of like the Bronco went back to the the cavs. What my bad y'all I was I was on some other stuff that really. Tony Tony. Talk. Tony. Brown Tony Brown. You guys are. Under the conclusion for sure for sure to he's going to be back in a league playing for somebody if he's not the we're stupid they're stupid I, think the only thing that is been waiting on how many games did you go to be suspended? So now that we know how many games, he's GONNA be out teams those few teams will will be there now when you know when you did mention San. Francisco. That kind of brazen antenna that's a great decision usov with able to do with Emmanuel Sanders they that offense change completely the in Jimmy G. needs another receiver like that deals legit. I'M NOT GONNA lie to you kittles is legit as tight end. So adding that will be good. He likes him I mean he likes California I could see him going back there. But I think if he had a choice to go back and make a wreck knows big band they they know there's no getting on the same page eight weeks in Games into the season. There's no getting on the same page I know you you know me you know the. Everyday. So so it's like riding a bike with him. So I think for him he do better because even if it was incentive laden, an incentive laden contract is going to have to be because of his performance in his attitude like I think he's GonNa. He have a better chance to position himself better for years to come if he did it in Pittsburgh. That was definitely this nation I thought of not recently. But in the past because his you've been talking about getting lady on bail pack. So I was like Gaily Bill Beg damage had. got. We fear, apologize. All GonNa. Come back. We should even should men in the first place. They'll be pretty interesting but I. I am still thinking that it's going to be Seattle. That's me. I like the idea Pittsburgh, but there's something about said Kim coming back with his tail between his late I don't know if he could really not let as Pri- away and join us. Jewish she doesn't have a choice he doesn't and I was looking at. Multiple teams looking to to try it. But look at the team has got you gotTa look at the team has got the culture to withstand that with the Pittsburgh already has right and decide no, he messed up tremendous opportunity with Las Vegas rare daytime. He did because Antonio Brown and that silver and black would have been great. That's a team where the takes on characters like Antonio Brown he missed. Squandered that but Yeah I could see him going back to the to the steelers, but you gotta look at the teams that can take on that kind of the kind of character. I. Think the forty niners I think they're a bit of a younger team. So that might not be as big of a fit as far as an organization to take that kind of chance. But then again, giving your ownership group and your management group who are former players I think they can I could see them you know giving a chance there. What's that again the forty nine? Around. Forty. Nine show I'm surprised you guys mentioned the buccaneers as an option to where he might go. There's no room. Yeah. No Room and their head coach thirty said, that's that's not going to happen. but what you would don't be surprised with whether at right now, the team that gave them a chance in the first place. I think New England would be willing to do right now with Marquees Lee agreeing or opting out there was more so than that Tom Brady one as opposed to bill belichick. Him being there. Yeah. But right now with Cam Newton there and them having a ton of players already opt out anyway if they WANNA fighting chance to get into the playoffs or to win their division eight games in what could a player like Antonio already showed you what he could do. Pair Him with Cam. Newton Jeez I mean and. and. Muhammed New I'M Not a bad receiving core at all I I, wouldn't be shocked if he if they gave him a chance top your top to bottom to is Irene Bay. In. Pittsburgh. Okay. With the outside chance of someone going to someplace like back to New England I think they can do i. think rooms don't with them the. I think both because I want to, I can't see them going back to the Patriots can't the Patriots. The Patriots led him think remember think was signed today beyond county before they got. The, Patriots didn't give up on him until the very end they let him play when everybody in the world there's no way they're gonNA let him late Mr and I thought that was more on Tabora I. Think. I WANNA. Bill. Belichick. Didn't. Didn't mind him being there I mean they use the hell out of mcdaniels. Loved Him. But Cam knew about Camden has right now honestly, he has nothing to. About the new, England's got what up to eight players now that have opted out opted out. So now you're squinting key players at that to right the cupboards already bears. So now you're looking at an opportunity of squandering a chance at a top five pick you know by allowing Antonio, Brown come and play and winning more games than that you need to now they can. Pretty. Much. Play with who they have and you're not talking about team is taking they don't have anybody else on the team but the check they have so many draft pick stocked a piled up and he dave he what he's been able to do has been in the later rounds draft. He's found diamonds in a rough. He's found people that nobody else in the World Tom Brady. Nobody even gave a chance. So He's getting people in the third fourth fifth round that people are like word is this guy come from like? No one knew that. So I. I don't think them having a first round pick. He flipped that anyway I think he would flip that into a couple of seconds and a third or second and third and fourth like he I don't I don't know that there that I don't know that they need that as much but. They'd be foolish man if we hadn't drafted cd-rom, I'd be begging cowboys become up. I I would absolutely love Them I would love him there and he'll. It won't be bad to happen as a fourth receiver if he was willing to play that role to be honest with you. But plenty of teams have had an opportunity to do it and they have. So to me, this is like the opposite of Colin. Kaepernick this is something he's done to himself. So he doesn't get another chance that's on him for. His last chance. Yeah he squanders this. He's not coming back until I. You know I'm not a hundred percent sure that someone's going to pick him up I'm. Eighty five percents sure. Someone's going I. think There's GonNa be multiple teams by I. think There is still that little bit of doubt and teams my like. Are you going to behave yourself man you're gonNA have to get game suspension. Was He going to? Get. Him in the camp asset I would sign I would not let us do seem around sit around because if they do. This is one of those players. This is one of those situations where I'd rather have on my team and heavy role player than half the game plan against you especially my division and for what the committee will be cheaper than Cam. He'll be cheaper than what Cam Newton was. So if you could get him see what's worse he could do those and granted. He has been relatively quiet. There haven't been any outrageous tweets or baby mama drama or anything going on these things behaved himself over the last month or two. So let's see maybe not maybe that'll be a positive thing get him in a camp. Get him a good helmet. You know. So you guys are. GotTa, definitely for sure that he's going to be signed. Thing you. Now the teams know that there it's an game suspension. He'll get some I'm telling you. He'll be signed by the before the twentieth of August people I definitely Richard you gotta sign him before training camp, get him in there as soon as possible so that you can also get those eight games out of the way so he can play possible also. This up. So we'll go from one wide receiver to another receiver desirous here place for forty Cleveland browns. Oh, they'll. Beckham. Junior right he does not think that the NFL should start with everything that's going on with the Colbert and all that stuff. So let me just read to you what he had to say. We're not ready for football season. So why are we trying to push Ford is obviously for their money and that bothers me because there's always been this I hate to say it like that. But the owners attitude is, Oh, we own you guys and debt is kind of unfairness going. On that, they don't see us as human I just feel like the season she didn't happen and I'm prepare for it to not happen and I wouldn't mind not having it. So. Those were his comments. He says, he doesn't mind that there was no secret and a lot of other players we mentioned new. England. They're opting nine anyway. So In the back of my mind you know as a fan. I would hundred and fifty percent Warsi football. I do not want there to be a this season, but we see what happened. Or is happening in major league. Baseball. The marlins had been you know. People off test positive for corona. So you know the NFL. You know is it is more of a context as well. You know in Major League baseball even if something happens someone gets it. They're all about already anyway social distancing donald me like that trae might drink but. I don't all the way agree what he's saying because of course I'm a fan I wanna see football being played but these are the players their safety comes first if that's the way field, that's what he feels and I think because he's a big time name that's why game the publicity is gaining right now. You know one thing that. Fans hold against players especially when it comes to. Contract negotiations is great. Oh, players greedy in they're just looking for the money. Well, right now they're looking out for themselves. I. As a Fan I love football and I don't WanNa see football now being played this fall but I'm not upset of what Oh Bj had to say I am not they about like this there has been football played since the Super Bowl. Then fell did a fantastic job of organizing NFL draft. And doing it from doing from afar correct and when it comes to putting together the next season and following all the protocol actually even putting together protocols for Covid nineteen they've done a a dastardly job. They've done a very poor job of putting protocols together for the NFL for these players to come together right now I know stadium set up you know things in the locker rooms and social distancing and all of that but. It just seems like it does seem like a money grab especially the amount of time taken for them to get protocols together right and it does seem like a money grab. Now, you're. You're kind of forcing players to to to pick and choose whether the hey, you know GonNa going to sit out what am I going to play? You'RE GONNA pay me fairly or or you're not going to take a pay cut my not you know so it it does seem like money grab I'm not mad at obt at all. Yeah and they had good a shorter period of time to make that decision as well. Yeah. Yeah. Actually the they're talking about moving it up right down time out time. Absolutely. Let me, tell Cornelius. Cornelius and has. Amid. Tell you something Cornelius. Every day he meets with teams on zoom or whatever he's working out every day preparing to play in the NFL. If you ask thought it wouldn't right to play. Why are you preparing? Why don't you? Why haven't you opted out yet if you didn't think it was good enough to play. So. I WanNa talk about it be about right. If you don't think it's say you know what? I don't think we should play. It's a money grab. I don't believe in this I'm now has he done that? No so miss me with that. That's all top. That's just what he thinks. Everybody else wants to hear is he right probably? If it's all about the money. Then why are you plan? It's all about the money for you too because you don't WanNa, miss that paycheck either so don't blame it on the owners and don't be pointing you don't be doing rocks at a glass house because you're playing and you have an opted out yet. So what's wrong with what's the problem those same people that are in for this money grab again, ready to pay you millions of dollars to go out there and play. They're going to distribute in their power to make you safe and if you really really really felt like that. You wouldn't be playing, but he gets meals a pay. Of course he does. Bite the hand that feeds you if you really feel like that step up and say you know I as a player I'm and he'd be the biggest name to opt out so far Sam often out but he he's going to be there and he's prepared every day I go to track practice at one o'clock every day he's GonNa wind up getting robbed. If he keeps it keeps it up like he tells us he told his whole story to the Wall Street, Journal I. Go to do this at this time I'm here at this time you don't hear many NBA or professional saying that because. Is. The mean streets could get to. You man the profits spoken I'm just saying for the spoke I'm just saying like you don't WanNa. You don't WanNa do that but he's preparing everyday like he's out there trying to get ready to win the Super Bowl. And if you WANNA if you don't think the plate, be that man step up and say you know what? I'm GONNA lead this. So what's the difference between what he said and some of the comments that maybe Jj why does mate Russell? Wilson has also made about if the NFL doesn't prepare us for what we're about to get into then then they. Might not play as well. He's Kinda did but Beckham has an alluded, say he's GonNa play right? Those are the players have kind of put those out there. They've threatened it like look if we don't get this this this we're going to, we're not gonNA play I haven't heard the ad didn't hear that from Odell. So if he did apologize but you got Teams like the saints renting out four floors of hotel to try and sequester is what the con- This equestrian, their team, the neck, bubbling them that put them in a bubble. But they're going to sequester the track and say, they're going to that link to try and do that. If you don't think it's safe and you don't WanNa do that don't play like. If you think you've got to do to keep all. You GotTa do this this this that can be any fans. You got this this this this this we're also going to do this and this is it really safe to play I I don't necessarily disagree with them kind of like what you say but don't say that and then say, Oh, I'm up in. Like that just I don't understand I. Don't know if that's Ob Jay, which obt that is. It is. It's this other other. Cornelius. Thing. Yeah Dale Cornelius Oh how do you think we might? have. said. Cornelius. Gentleman. Determine all. Or nearly. Oh Man. Oh. Man Man good good stuff. Good stuff guys. If this is your first y'all done right I want I. Don't know if you have more to say always have more to say but I'm GonNa cut you on. It is your first time. Listen to this podcast. Please do not his day to subscribe.

It's time for jed right now. Sure he's laughing in heaven. Because i'm about to praise them in public for his accomplishments on one of the most public stages i can see him now. Are scolded with a huge grin. Saying isn't this. He's still winning. There would never be anyone like kobe. Kobe was one of a kind he was special. He was humble off the court a bigger than life. I know that he would think everyone that helped him get here. Including the people that doubted him and the people that worked against him and told him he couldn't attain goals was thank all of them for motivating him to be here after all. You proved you wrong. People don't know this but one of the reasons. My husband played injuries in pain was because he said i remember being a little kid sitting in the nose leaves with his dad to watch my favorite player play. He could recall the car. Ride the combos in the excitement of being lucky enough to have a seat in the arena. Kobe didn't want to disappoint his fans. Especially the ones in the three hundred sections saved up to watch him. Play the kids with the same excitement. He once had congratulations baby. All of your hard work and sacrifices paid off. You once told me if you're going to bet on someone bet on yourself. I'm glad you bet on yourself. You overachiever you did it. You're in the hall of fame. Now you're a true chance you're not just an mvp you're an all time great. I'm so proud of you. I love these forever nowadays. Koby right all right. So vanessa bryant at the hall of fame induction ceremony. He inducted her husband. Kobe bryant very very very very good speech that she gave it was very heartfelt very emotional. She gave a lot of detail on she. Just exuded that mama mentality up there when she was speaking about her husband and it was a great thing to watch a phenomenal speech by vanessa. Brian and it was just. It was just great to see. You're up there and speak on behalf of her husband. Yeah it was a very rousing very moving speech. Almost shed a tear their towards the end man when she was thanking. Her husband But that that that that was that was it was a strong moment for her You could tell it was it was very For her but you know the fact that should step in and represent her her husband an induct him You know one final time of was was huge but you know she really shed light on what kobe was like all the court you know he still found time to never miss a dance. Recital dropped his his girls school. Pick them up from school He made john. You know you want to talk about reality is not only about. What's on the court. But it's everything else you know. And he made sure to be great at everything. She named his accomplishments when it came to the books that he wrote and woody produced. You know talked about how he wasn't as a family So that it was a moment it was a touching moment And and you know it just really shows what kobe was like you know. As as an all encompassing being right what a great man absolutely absolutely you know the one thing he said that stuck out for me was y. Kobe played through injuries and make sure that his fans got to see him any opportunity that he was available because he remembers when he was growing up he was younger watching his idols. He he dismembered he can always watch them and he wants to make sure that he debt to his playing careers. Well if he had injury or small nikki gonna play kobe. Bryant is not about no load management. Okay he is going to go out there and play and give it his all if he has to play entire game. That's what he was going to do for hispanics. He was very very good to his fans in once again. Shot out to vanessa brian. Inner speech a very very well said by kindergarten. It was also inducted. Tim duck in patrick bowen. To mika catching xlt. Eddie sutton and of course you rutan. Donald trump there the great. Hey coach the houston rockets. He he mentioned debt. Robert ory should be in the hall of fame Very interesting We also had a little thing or instagram. We asked what career you have. Charles barkley our rob or and it was very interesting to see responses on that. We might talk about that one day on the podcast. More in depth on we should should. There's one more thing i'll headway on. Tim duncan chessel suet speeches. Well you know tim. Tim has been known as a very even calm. Doesn't speak much doesn't say much devoid of personnel. And what i listen to in terms of speech. I wanted to hear more. I felt like i knew more about tim. Duncan because of that speech in his personality he was even funny. Dare i say right. There is an ambiance about him that he gave off. I now i just want to. I want to find out more about what. He's like off the field. Obviously with the spurs. Everything's about that business like mentality and just coming to work every single day. You know blue collar workers and it's about being your best every single day. I like the fact that he thanked his teammates. Thank david robinson you gave him. His flowers thanked new job. Noblemen tony parker. Which was huge. I mean those guys were staples in terms of adding to the championships. I know he does arousing moments who really thank all the teammates and everybody come across that. That was huge. I want to go back and find some more stuff. So i can hear. Tim duncan speak. It was very very enlightening for tim. Duncan is been quiet kind of soft-spoken but he's also been very classy as well. I remember when they played miami heat. I think higher. I don't remember exactly what happened. And they lost the first time but the next time they played around yet lost first time when reality hit that shot that gave him the comeback to win the series. The next year they played the begin and he was like adamant. Or we're gonna win this. I have never heard him speak like this when i heard him speak doubt. They're gonna win. They're gonna win this series so you know. Tim duncan dare. I say degree as powerful of all time. I mean you could argue you. Know you've got karl malone and charles barkley and in other power is that played in the nba. I put my my vote on his as him being the greatest powerful five championships. Right all right. So twenty twenty one hall of fame inductees deadman named at a private event held. The notable names would be ben wallace. Paul pierce chris. Bosh and chris webber as well also be inducted. Was rick ataman. Who is denied to winningest coach in nba. History also seven-time wnba all-star two time olympic gold medalist. You'll you'll the griffin and seventeen. Nba all star and three time. Wb mvp. lauren. This'll be the first time in history. They have to separate hall of fame and presentation of so that's going to be interesting That won't be held september eleventh of this year. I'm really happy that that chris webber got in there was a very very good dialogue between him and jalen rose jalen roles actually was very happy to see he was invited into all we had our. We talk about their beef if you haven't seen as an instagram. We're talking about the beef between jalen rose and chris webber but he actually was very happy to see. That crisper was inducted than it is very very very good. Moment chris webber. He was speech. This for the most part because he just couldn't fathom that he was in the hall of fame. Yeah a lot of good things to say. Yeah a lot of people that he wanted to talk about as far as him getting to where he was at so it was a very good thing to watch him in. Rose all right steph. Curry clinches a twenty twenty one. Nba scoring title steph. Curly's five years removed from his first title which earned his second. Mvp season in two thousand and sixteen to seventeen. He barely edged out bradley. Beal or the washington wizards bill finished with average about thirty one point. Three points per game and steph finished with thirty two points per game curry becomes the first player thirty three years or older to lead the league in scoring says michael jordan did it. In ninety seven and ninety eight he also joins jordan volt chamberlain crema Bar as the only players with multiple scoring titles. Mvp and championships banker. Even doing curry is shooting forty. Two point one percent on twelve point six attempts per game from three point range. This season of volume that exceeds is mvp seasons in two dozen fifteen and sixteen so steph curry doing it. He's going to get the scoring title. Eddie out bradley beal. He's been playing out of his mind this year. History point shooting has his been lights out. Lil you know As you know lebron james endorsed and we're going to get into that. Yeah yeah you know the big ups tomb big ups to him to be just one of only two players to be thirty three years older to win a scoring title. It's it's amazing but you know what this league is about right. This this is a shooters league. And you've got the best of them out there shooting the dog s the basketball and this thing is going in. also big. ups. Tune congratulates steph curry. Who would ever thought that. Come out davidson steph. Curry will be mentioned in the likes of michael jordan. I don't think anybody could have guessed at no that gets that. No no no you. You're right you know but you know when you when you put in a kind of where i mean. Think he's come from early on in his career had injuries that yankel and to get to where he's at right now. It's just a testament to his hard work. His will mean he. Did you just mentioned it. Lebron james dozen door steph curry for. Mvp is what lebron james had to say. Just look what he's done this year. Everybody count him out this year. Air by saying that clay is heard steph can can steph lead team on his own kennedy. Carry a team to the postseason. Can you keep a team afloat. He's done that and more if you're looking for. Mvp if steph is not on golden state's team were you looking at. We get caught up in the record. Sometimes it's the same who had the best season that year and steph has had in my opinion the best season all year. All right so lebron james endorses steph curry as the mvp employed though because another going gonna play his children. I d. I play in game whenever i want. But they're gonna play chess playing games. So i support kind of know each step down in youtube. He does endorse death. I think steph is well deserving of the mvp. he's in the names with joel embiid. Of course you have dame to care. What cristiano christmas eve christmas go a day by dame is there as well as be mentioned of course chris. Paul should be mentioned his mvp as well. Lebron james's own right. If not for injury issues he was mentioned there as well as well shoot mission. Mvp he might actually end up gaining. I think it's still a race between him. And joel embiid but airline names out there that we should be mitch. Maybe s step is definitely well deserved of mvp consideration. You've mentioned messing a lot of different names. One thing i do agree with with what lebron said is that we do get too caught up in in the record. Who actually was the most valuable most important individual on the team. monastir record. It's very arguable. That without steph. This team you know harley wins. Double digit games yokich. You could say the same thing you say the same thing with all of these players you know so i think this year this race has really opened a door to show you know that there are a lot of important players on the team held another name you can drop lupone that list too because the mavericks they are you know as inconsistent sleep been. Hey you know. I got two boys but however but it's it's again so we've got a list of come up with ten players. That deservedly could win an mvp russell westbrook. He's been doing right because Bradley bill has been. You know it's take so much pressure away from. Its very arguable. That russell westbrook because they would have the kind of season he's having because of bill bradley. Beal should be out there too. So it's been a tight race. I think steph is definitely deserving along with everybody else that it'd just be really interesting to see Who you know who takes that. Yes indeed all right longtime houston rockets broadcasts. Our bureau a nicer to retirement. He will be retired as iraqi television. Play by play. Broadcaster falling rock his final home game of the season versus la clippers. Which was back. Friday may fourteenth Me and my wife actually went to that game. Rural will remain as a special contributor next season. Which will be his fortieth with the rockets bureau. Oral and calvin murphy go hand in hand because call allow the rockets gangs back in the nineties as well with a lodge one and clyde drexler and all them and it was this synonymous with houston rockets basketball to heal to hear bill world voice and he will be missed. It's kind of got emotional for me because when you look at houston rockets basketball throughout the years you always suspected to hear the voice and now that's not going to be there. It's like a while. Is it just shows you what life is about math. People move on and do stuff but a shout. The bureau for his retirement A great play by play broadcaster. Forty smartness all. That was headlines. Let's move on. Let's do one of my favorite segments of all time. Here on this podcast. 'cause i know my segments. Famous athletes famous quotes new sports. Podcast presents famous athletes famous forms. Naby work is how it works very very simple. I'm gonna give you some clues about an athlete. And then after. I give you all those clues low. You're gonna guess who it is. Guess who it is great. Don't wear whatever who cares on trauma. Plus you will try your best. You should get this. If you don't get this. I might pull a joe biden on this pocket. set the bar that i At after you attempt to guess who this athlete is i will play their most famous quote. Are you ready. Bigalow was doing right. This athlete was born august. Twenty third of one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. This athlete has won five nba championships. This athlete won most valuable player back in two thousand eight. He is a two time. Nba finals mvp. He spent his entire twenty year. Career with the los angeles lakers and he was just inducted into the twenty twenty hall of fame. Low if you don't get this i am. I'm going to be so upset. What you magic johnson. The chris you did nothing. Basically pulled the chris chris. That's why don't show a box guys. It's it's the legendary is the goat The black mamba kobe bryant. Yes it is yes it is and you know he has so bitty different quotes man. I wanna play. I wanna cheat a little bit here. I wanna play two different things okay. There's a practice that he he's at would his t base and he calls his tea based softest shot. I'm going to play that clip. That and play one of his more. You know mama mentality like species will but first of all. We're going to play. Sharp stopped as charlotte. India warm rich. Can't listen i the moose important it is to love. Which if you love what you do. Is you hats. All the hard work and perseverance will pay off once gannon's counts. Tell me that. I should play basketball. That it would never amounted his negativities towards veenstra. Can't stop people. Try to limit your dreams which can stop it from becoming your your dreams to encourage you to always be curious. Always seek out things. You love always work hard which you find so with that. Let you carry even please note. They supporting you encourage. That was bryant so we went from one into spectrum where he's talking about his t base be soft like sharpen and hope he could is kind of hard to really hear him through all the the basketball player but he's talking to bad s to his teammates and one particular point where he's like saying shoot it shoot shoot it. He's talking directly to jeremy derby when he was a part in los angeles lakers at the editor. If you watch video and in the video where going to the huddle and kobe's like saying take. It has home coach. Take the as. They're trying to put their head. Jerry does not putting. Jeremy looked dejected. He's they are bad. You know but it is funny. How he you know either he could motivate you or the dick dejected. As what he was right yeah he was he was youtube. I have a chip on shoulder. He always had she showed shoulder. He was always looking for a way to motivate. You play one more thing. One more thing from kobe. That will kind of explain more about what he just did. One more quote from kobe won more quote. Laker organization stood for championships not tolerate. You're gonna show up to play. And you're going to allow gags scrimmage through the stru beat you know beat. You don't want you to reconsider your professional life choice. People will say okay. That doesn't make a great team. Well i'm not going to be a great team here to help you win championships. So the little. Another glimpse of kobe about you know when people continue to compare michael jordan. Kobe bryant lebron. James between lebron james and kobe bryant. Who was who was who was. Most like mike is kobe. Kobe that quote exemplified mike jordan. All the way right and it was. It's not a. I'm not here to be your friend. I want to win championships this organization about championships. And you either gonna get on my level or you take your solved paper all off of my court. Because i want to win championships. So that exemplifies. An and i and i appreciate that because what did the grace half is a psychotic. Daily living obsessive. You know to be great and for everybody else around me to be. I'm going to force greatness out of you or you leave. there's nowhere. There's a door to door very simple and you just have to respect that and you want to win a championship and won't be my teammate. This is what the standard is no doubt all right so that was famous. Athletes famous quotes long. Live the black mamba thrown all right so the nba play in tournament. That we've been talking about on our semi previous podcast. Also talk about a little bit on on the new channel sports. Show afrobeat live. Tv as well but it's finally upon us. We finally know what teams are going to participate in the play in which starts on tuesday on tuesday. We'll have the ten seats charlotte hornets on the road. To face to indiana pacers. That game starts. I on tnt then the nightcap. We have the ac washington wizards going to boston to play the celtics on wednesday. We had the nice seeded memphis grizzlies hosting the san antonio spurs than the finish off wednesday. We have lebron james and the lakers. Who are the defending champions to host the golden state warriors and steph curry. So we will get to that game later on but first. Let's talk about two charlotte hornets. Going up against the indiana pacers to charlotte. Hornets are a very intriguing team to me. In my opinion they have the rookie of the year. They're in lamelo ball but they're they kind of. They finished the season. Pretty bad right. They lost their last five games. They finished the season thirty. Three and thirty nine gordon hayward is not playing for them again. He's with me. And mrs twenty fifth straight game of the season but it should be variously matchup. I'm not gonna let you haven't seen a lot of indiana pacers basketball from what i heard her. Main two pieces probably be brogden the vertex supposes as well but they have a pretty even keel team right. Did there no big stars that just stand out on that team. They play pretty good as well. They played pretty good team. Basketball are actually favorite to win the game against the charlotte hornets which will be hosting but throughout the season. They finished one and two against the charlotte hornets so it should be pretty interesting. I actually have charlotte win this game. I think that charlotte should win that game right and they will take the next step to play against a loser of the seventh and eighth seed but the key to that game the key to charlotte winning. We'll be terry rozier. He's actually the best player on that team. All the hype is behind the mellow ball and emmaus bridges because mouth. Bridges dunstan everybody. But that's where all the hype is that. But if terry rose zero is able to play great basketball for that team in that game. They should move on to play the loser of the washington wizards and the boston celtics but they have to win two games to get in to get the abc which would be pre difficult. I see them wearing this one. I don't know if they beat the loser of the wizards and the the celtics mean. This is an intriguing matchup between two not very good teams One of them is very interesting and the charlotte hornets. I do agree with that. I think it's going to come down to health. The hornets are the are the healthier team explosive power. They are definitely. You know young and hyped but is situation where experience comes into play so you do have more established team in the pacers malls turner. I mean he's out. That's your defensive cadillac right there. Curiously avert is still injured or easy playing. I think he's actually gonna play this. He's going to play this. I i believe so. Yeah okay so but this will be interesting. I'm also taking the charlotte hornets. I i just think too much of their. You know gordon hayward's out. I mean the guy misses half the season of every year. We definitely take the horn inasmuch up. So i think he stayed at pretty well. Low that injuries will be a key part to series. I believe malcolm brogdon his actually out of the game right Yeah so i. I'm taking a horse in that game. One game winner moves on to face a loser. Let's talk about the washington wizards and the boston celtics injuries. Also a key to that game as well Jalen brown being out for the the boston. Celtics that was a huge huge loss. We had a couple of big injuries this season and that was one of them who of course we know what happened with the denver. Nuggets jamal murray. But that one was just as to me. I think that jalen brown was was playing his best season of his professional career. Ephraim the go now like that really hurt the boston celtics and they're going up against a washer wizard team in russell. Westbrook -an and bradley beal to have been playing pretty good basketball. They started the season slow. They were below five hundred button. They had went on a tear after a certain point on that point was by not there a certain point they went on a tear and they were playing probably they have been playing that way from the beginning season. They will probably be like a top five team in eastern conference road. So there's another one here while look at the lower seed as actually winning the contest is one game matchup. And it's not. Because i think the boston celtics aren't aren't really that good. I just think that the chemistry that the washington wizards have right now. They jail at the right moment and russell westbrook and bradley beal are playing really good basketball russell. Westbrook was not playing this well. At the beginning season he was not but as soon started game to astrid started getting really really healthy. He became a triple double that team. I don't think anybody wants. Cat modestly so once they match up against the boston celtics. I think it would be very very difficult for him to contain bradley. Beal and russell westbrook and i think i'm gonna have to pick the washer wishes to win that game against boston. Oh you have to i mean. It's it's jason. Tatum versus the entire team. That's really what it comes down to. And he's he's not going to be able to do about himself. This is the perfect game for. We ought to know russ plays with that chip on the shoulder. This is perfect. We're coming in. We're underdogs when our respected all the other stuff he's got he's got a killer mentality they're gonna come in demoss celtics you know. I think i agree with you. This is this is a team that you don't wanna see number one number. Two team doesn't want to see because bill in rust together It's look man they play they plan to five and a damn good a plan to five. I think that'd be. That'd be exciting. Out in particular game will be inciting But the next match-up Beginning after this'll be an exciting much. We both have washed away in that game. And it's just because like i said 'cause injuries but you know i want to is probably boston it out. They have a lot of key pieces besides jalen brown they can. They can resort to you. Say you know jason. Tatum versus the entire team. But you know marcus. Smart is still. They aren't at team. He can provide a lift defensively and offensively at times as well. But i i'm going to have to take washington game. So whoever wins that game between boston and washington automatically becomes a seventh seat which we are predicting would be to washington wizard so boston will play the winner of the hornets and the pacers. Though gra semi the celtics will go up against in. Weird thing is gonna happen. They will go up against either. Charlotte are indiana out. And i see boston beating eater. Charlotte are indiana but the way we figure it was. That short is going to win that game so charlotte will have to play against the boston. Celtics and are the key is still the same there as well. if they're stars being lamelo ball interros ear can up their game. They have opportunity to win. I they do you talk about experiences. Well experienced being playoff experience in this in games like this because that's alternately game seven kind of thing right there. 'cause winner-take-all gra. But i still see boston win. That game and take an eighth seed baseless. We're seeing right now because we don't know boss could beat d-wash. Wizards basically. I'm saying it's gonna be washington and boston taking seventh or eighth seed whoever's eighth we don't know but those will be a two teams advancing to the play alton. Which again i mean. This is great no but when actual play start you go here you have to play the seventy sixers art brooklyn brooklyn nets. It's all negativity right now. This is about the winners of the losers playing losers which will ultimately play one of the winners. And then it's a it's a rat from right right but look man if washington was able to win and get their seat. We're talking about a matchup where we have. The washington wizards against brooklyn nets. Oh that'll be that'll be that'd be fun but i mean washington will wash. It will lose. They will be one there. would i give them one. Just because you're looking at. I mean that'd be man that's a mouth-watering matchup right there. I mean you've got mr triple-double bradley beal finished number two and scoring and then of course you got a trio of just everybody on the nets. I mean that'd be. That'd be amazing james hard you have one of the greatest shooters kevin durant random e. That'd be that'd be mouth-watering mc there and just dynamic of dose story gentlemen all playing together on one team and then you have the dynamic of russell westbrook playing together with both gentlemen by themselves you know russ playing with james harden in houston plane with kevin durant and okay see And then you get the whole beef this. I really a beef anymore. But you know you know when russ is in playoff mode and kevin durant playoff modine. Negative bump heads growing british. You're gonna they're gonna absolute and you know bradley. Bill is no no slouch either. I don't get it there and the actors will come out. That will be great. That'll be great to see. That would be so now. now. I'm now exceptionally rudy. Before to wash. it was good that first game. I wanna see that. I wanted to be washed an effort. Gabe and then i wouldn't mind seeing the celtics. Go get the seventy sixers. Well as much as we talk about. How the celtics miss jalen brown. They still have a pretty good team. They jason tatum there. And of course you already know. The philadelphia has something to prove in these playoffs. So that'll be interesting match also to see as well i've talked about how much i love playing snuff right. I i like it. i like to set up. I've talked about how much i loved it so much. But i do not wanna see the pacers in the playoffs. I just don't i'm sorry. I don't think that's interesting to me. I will let us see charlotte the playoffs but not above the celtics or the wizards but if it had to be someone else. I will take the charlotte hornets lamelo ball in the playoffs in a playoff type atmosphere. Which already in in the plan. And that's why like so much because we get to see teams. That normally won't be in this kind of situation in a situation where it's must win for them to advance so we could just skip all of this together because as it stands right now. You still have the boston celtics number seven. You have the washington wizards at number eight. We skip all of this and industry have the brooklyn nets. It gets the washington wizards and we have that immediately. Now have to go through all this hoopla and have to wait to see who was gonna win with charlotte indianapolis and go through all these things. We have the match that we won't right now. Because i'm looking at it actually. Be what the washington wizards against the philadelphia seventy sixers but still who cares what when low stars using words like hoopla as you know. He's he's upset about something. I've been a proponent against this and we're talking about the match ups and i said you know what let me just go back and look at the standings right now. I'm like we can skip fitness. Still very we talked about this on the tv show right. The standings are still pretty close in the eastern conference. It's not like any one team is ahead of any other by such a wide margin. Indiana is thirty. four and thirty eight. Boston is thirty. Six and thirty six. You got the sharp horns at thirty three and thirty nine. And you've got to wash soon was at thirty four and thirty eight th. They're all separated by one game though. I get what you're saying but the season's over nine anymore is a play in now and it's not like it's not like as far as indiana pacers and to charlotte horns concern. They have to win two games in a row okay. They have to win two games in a row against you but you just said that you don't wanna see the indianapolis play placers playoff and no one. But if they went to games in a row they deserve to be there. They're able to be charlotte and embiid. Whoever's a loser. Out of the washington wizards and the boston celtics get an a spot. That means they want in the first place. There's look look the indiana pacers have no business beating chart it. I am beating either washington bar to have but the have a chance the have the about about heavy. I get that but then we're going to miss out. We're going to have the indianapolis pacers playing the brooklyn nets which is just. That's not going to be fun. I don't wanna see that. I can get my washington wizards against the seventy sixers brooklyn nets. Wherever the hell they're going to and get there right now but what i'm trying to do right now is double dip. Okay i'm trying to get my matchups in the play in match. Play out if it works that way. Finding that work this way this time just being greedy i agree guy would greedy guy all right. So let's move on to the western conference reality. We talked too much about the pace. Okay so you know. As much as i told you. I love his play it. This is the main reason why liked to play in. And then this is. The main proponent is why he don't like the play it right is western conference side as well. You have the golden state warriors and the los angeles lakers does should be the two teams that go to the playoffs. The san antonio spurs at the memphis grizzlies have no business none beating the playoffs button. This is the way set up the gift. Here is that to see steph. Curry go amana. We mino against lebron james. Lebron james just endorsed steph curry's mvp. Which i said earlier. Just deploy to soften soften them up like charlotte. Don't piss off. don't pay off stuff. That's what i'm saying. He'd go off a six right and that's what he's doing off about a deputy man bro. You should be bro. If i'm steph. I'm like don't patronize me. I'm still gonna go off sixty points just because you tried to pick up patriot new and that's what needs to happen in order for him to win. That game steph does have to go off. but let's go ahead and give the memphis grizzlies. An essential spurs. Some kind of mentioned here right. So why because they're the play it low they are in the plane. Memphis is a nice seed gonna be hosting san antonio. They played at first game on wednesday. The winner of that game plays the loser of the lakers and goes at warriors. Now go i d. i don't care who wins that game. You know what you should do. What should i do should do one of those polls on instagram. Page grandpa's channel sports and see if anybody how many people what percentage of people wanna watch the memphis grizzlies and a san antonio spurs. Because once again. I appreciate the matchup of the los angeles lakers and goes. That's that's the only playoff play in tournament game. Or whatever. I i wanna see some really curious to see what's going to happen with the brown james and if they legitimately have a chance to miss out on the playoffs altogether that'd be very interesting but still all of this still completely pointless to me. So let the thing on instagram. Live and see how many people how what percentage of people wanna see the members memphis grizzlies. And the san antonio spurs played battle off a number. I think that'd be the first time. I do a poll in its zero percent. Probably below the looking at this like this. Lebron james said whoever had this idea should be fired right right. That person's light it is. It is because you think about it. The edba is not what the lakers are the playoffs as great as it is that they had the matchup between steph curry and the broad gave whoever brought this up if the lakers lose. He's sweating bullets through his old staff. Now i don't think the lakers are going to lose to whoever wins out of the san antonio spurs and memphis grizzlies. But if it were to happen. I'm telling you right. Let's just say for some weird reason. The lakers don't make the playoffs. That guys fired and is you know what this point yet. They were not anymore. But but let's say that steph and lebron. They played a game of the century in this plane right. Whoever wins wins wherever lose-lose who whatever happens happens but both teams against the plans and then eastern conference we just mentioned russell westbrook against the celtics. They played a game with a century as well. It just must see. Tv to rains are through the roof. Then trust me playing back for years and years to come. But i'm telling you if lebron james because this is a one year experiment dairy said this is going to be is one year. Let's see how this works out because we in the bubble a little bit different rules in the bubble a little bit different format but we in the bubble and narrow gonna do it here and let's see how this works out now. Most players don't like it. Most players start not liking it when they're in the vicinity of being the plague. Your dallas was and what point. I don't like this. I guess what they went on a tear dare at data logger there. So i i think in the long run it good but this is the danger you what they're not losing the lakers not losing. They're not they if steph goes off right. 'cause i don't care about san antonio and we we we don't care who wins that game winner. Loser necessaries vanegas. We're not even gonna do it. Roy i do think the lakers will prevail and beat the golden state warriors. I think they will. They'll get that seven seed in the western conference right and then steph curry and the warriors whether figure hotter gonna beat either san antonio or grizzlies to get that ac. Now we're talking about. We're talking about playoffs as well. Especially in the western conference. It is fully loaded sir fully loaded. Okay because when you talk about. What's going on the western conference and you talking about who the number one seed is in the western conference that would be the utah jazz. That's right semi's we have a match up with utah jazz in our utah. Go up against the lakers. Just because so and again. We're going through these playoff tournament. Games for ultimately la and golden state to jostle for seventh or eighth. So we're gonna finish with where they're at right now. Which is elliott seventh and golden state at number eight or those two teams would just switch positions with golden state at seven and l. a. At eight so either way. Both of those teams either gonna play the phoenix suns whether utah jazz. Which will be interesting. Because we we're gonna have plop talk. You know once all of this is settled. Or whatever. But it'll be really interesting because i can see golden state giving utah really hard time again. This all of this comes down to steph. All of this comes on the steph. And we'll get. It's outplay talk. Whenever whenever we do that I can see a little bit difficult for a two run through utah. Utah think just to good too good But the fact that you have lebron who still dylan that ankles. Not all the way. No it's not and he tweeted against the pelicans and he's one cut one thing away from from missing a couple of games in the playoffs so that that's something for us to really watch So utah really taking advantage. You know what. Let me let me give spoilers but the real interesting no no. You're right this is really going to be interesting. And at the end of the day anybody who is a nba basketball fan wants to see the warriors and the lakers in the playoffs. Naga see that. That's the only game. I wanna watch out of all of this. Play on. Play play series. Would we just want to have our cake eater too. That's what all this is. We want to see steph and lebron in alternate was a kind of game seven matchup whoever loses loses but they better make sure they win that next game right. 'cause we talk about the western conference playoffs. We're we're kind of going ahead of schedule here. But bro year. The phoenix suns. good team. utah jazz good team. La clippers. good team dow's marissa put on late. They're a good team. The denver nuggets a good team. The portland trailblazers. A good team bro. This is this is absurd. What's going on the into the western conference. Okay the lakers are the golden state. Warriors could finish the eighth-seed all teams want to eight if it turns out to be a lakers in gaza whereas all have winning records all of them. You talk about the. Afc considered to be the lakers articles at warriors both teams have won. Championships phoenix utah. They're trying to get there but they're good teams. I mean bro who the western conference is a beast. Yeah i mean this was brutal is brutal this. This'll be the first time i've looking at this and i'm thinking one through eight. You all have opportunity to win. Go to the finals. And let let me ask you some here with any of these match ups because you know impasse say oh that's going to be a sweep that's all you. Do you see any sweeps going not potentially not now on a paper you be surprised. I would not be surprised. There was a sweep somehow. Maybe like ninety four one. Because you don't know some of these matchups were looking at them and we. We're kind of licking our chops. But some of these matches my turn out to be to wear when another be on legal. I'll do before one right. I don't think anybody's going to be able to be. I don't think so. i don't think so either. I mean look man. Yeah they'll be a force somebody somebody and unfortunately probably my mavericks or something probably portland. But costa mavericks. Just haven't been consistent right. That probably be the only four one. I see Possibly the phoenix One of those things plant who's Who's portland plan right now. It'll be They'll play the the denver nuggets. I'm not for sure all right now. I don't have it in front of me. All i know is that all hit it isn't it is nuggets might be That'd probably be the only four one situation or only other one but even at that. I mean yeah man. I can't wait playoff time. Let's let's let's wait for this play into this juicy man. I can't i can't go. You know we'll wait where you get away. Low carb dow. You gotta wait. So as far as the lakers and the goes awards are concerned. I do see the lakers. Winning that game then the warriors will beat whoever wins out of the san antonio spurs and the memphis grizzlies. That's the way it has to be. Okay i know a guy who ever said a. Let's do this display in tournament thing. He's huby sweating bullets but the lakers lose. He had a box packing box where to go. Oh good stuff. Excellent excellent may. I can't wait for that. playoff talked. Okay it should be very very good. The western conference for sure because on eastern conference we got brooklyn nets now and you know they should brooklyn that should make it out of east dare just one through eight. Who is going to be in the western conference. Who's it going to be if this is your first opportunity. Listening to new channel sports podcast.

EPISODE 110: Drunk Uncle, Goat Status & Trevor Lawrence

"Thank you for tuning in. It is greatly appreciated on this episode of the podcast. We are going to discuss. What went down between kevin durant and shannon sharpe. We also dissect comments made by trevor lawrence and is steph curry to greatest point guard. Of all time. He's one of the poster boys for position basketball. The do it all anywhere on the court literally anywhere on record and make a difference for his team so he may never lead. The league in assists. Hardin can or like a chris. Paul can but his ability to get open shots distracted. Defense just went allows a guy like klay thompson who's all world and in himself or like draymond green andres dollar or harrison barnes to get open shots so yeah he may not pass it to that guy gets opened the shot but just by his movement he gets that guy that opened shot and he's transformed what we call the point guard and the more i talk about it the more. I'm starting to think of time into the new channels so bit sports call hot jazz. This is the new channel sports. Podcast my name is oh any.

Big low is not available today. He's a very hard working man. So he's out. Cain cares and stuff but he definitely osu. We won't get the coming down you know you didn't forget you're right. You're right combined our voices together to get the details of big low. Real deep voice. Coming down in haystack. You know what i'm saying but you seem a good spears man. I i liked it. I liked it. I'm ready to go. We got we got a good show. Yes we do as we tried to bring good shows to table day in and day out. So let's kick off this show with some headlines. It's time or jamal. Murray towards aclu tonight during a game against the war years very devastating injury. He was very devastated by the news that he did tears. Acl a what does this do. For the title hopes of the one denver nuggets well it removes auto hopes that they had to our loyal listeners. That listen to us here in the podcast on apple. Tv we talked about it and our last episode new sports nfo vibes tv. And i asked you. Do you buy the nuggets as a finals. Contender going to the finals. And both of you did with the idea to jamal. Murray was going to be there because he is one of the few players in the nba. That when the playoffs comes he gets better. He doesn't get worse than playoffs. He gets much better and mcleod him and fortunately they have no shot and it's just sucks because the players in the west was always going to be great but it it diminishes what we seen and my heart goes out to the nuggets fans as well i understand. Obviously my heart goes out. Jamal murray. Because he's injured but the nuggets fans they've been waiting patiently for a really really good team to come and they. They got one this season. Particularly with the addition of aaron gordon and to see that young man that star in this league go down and injury and it you said it you hit it right on the nail those devastated. Yeah i i did. Have the nuggets making some noise in this playoffs. I did like the addition of aaron. Gordon and i thought they were going to make a big run but for me. Honestly without jamal murray. There's really little to no chance of going to the to the final so a big blow to the denver nuggets in the nfl patriots. Dr receiver julian element who's played twelve seasons with new england patriots. And help them win three championships. It was the mvp fifty three announces a tyrant in a video posted on social media. He said it was a hard decision. But the right decision for me and my family. I am honored and so proud to be retiring. Patriot is been the best twelve years of my life element who was limited to six games. Last season because of chronic knee injury is tire twelve year career with the patriots and wreck. Second in nfl. History what one hundred eighteen postseason receptions behind only jerry rice who has won fifty one jeweler element which is a vendor the news over all over the place and social media and so what is jewelry ella hall favors know more. Yeah we can. There's only say this though just because he's not a hall of fame because he didn't accomplish great things and we have to knock him but based on what we've seen in the hall of fame would amount of time. Some players have to wait. He's not hall of famer. Yeah i mean the wide receiver list goes on and on and on and on. And he's not better than a lot of wide receivers. They're still waiting to get into the hall of fame. But just like you said chris. There's no knock on him and ways accomplished his career. That says a lot about him as even being talked about in the hall of fame. I and truly though so he's had a great career. I believe he was a sixth or seventh round. Pick and him to get. As far as he has a great accomplishment for doing element he's going to be retired shortly and then he's playing for tag bucking air sometime. Next season agreed. And i'll say this. I think honestly if you look at their careers wessel welker in if anybody's going to get him between him and julian edelman because both blue vic brady west woke i got i got shot to get into the. I don't know a lot about wolves workers stats. I'll look into that to see if i drew cheers. You ain't gonna look to play this okay. I'll trust your diesel. Speaking of retirement lamarcus aldridge also announced his retirement. He announced that on twitter the hebrew trying from nba after experiencing an e regular heartbeat during his final appearance with the team. Lamarcus artists said for fifteen years. I put basketball. I and now was trying to put my health and my family. I is this is a this is a slight blow to the nets run to possibly a championship. But you gotta respect Lamarcus aldridge decision to put his health above everything else. When you have an irregular heartbeat or anything like that dealing with your heart. You've gotta debt seriously and you know. He decided to hang it up yemen. Anything to do with the heart. Because if anybody who's ever had any type of issue with heart it's very scary because it gets real fast bro. You feel like you're going to die. Yeah and you didn't. Yeah he did mention. You was scared about it happening. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah when you do that you gotta retirement. So i'm glad he's he's safe. I don't wanna see him collapse on the court and down ride. Go spend time your family. He's had a terrific nba career. I wish him the absolute best enemies. Alongkorn i love longhorn absolutely absolutely. What was that last bro. I hope we'll pick it up. Hold margaret busby. Read all right bro- a pittsburgh attorney says he and his client have found a police report against los angeles. Rams defensive tackle aaron donald for an alleged assault. This alleged assault happened in the overnight hours of april tenth relevent it allegedly happened between three to four m an after hours club on the city's south side. D vincent springs is the name of the man found a charged against aaron donald. So find themselves in trouble. I don't know if you've seen the pictures. Chris of the alleged opioid. But they look bro. They look really really bruegel. And we already know aaron. Donald has not really a short fuse on the field but we've seen and some altercation on the field a where he's got into other players and so uh man he does one thing right avenue. Short fuse fitness yup. Short fuse in real life Like you said there are allegations would know them to be true. But i have seen the pictures and somebody paul's on man might put the paul's only him. I it brutal indeed. Today viane clowney signs a one year. Deal up to ten million dollars with the cleveland browns. The a good move for him. he's going to be playing alongside a maoz garrett another force in the line. Do you think this is going to really improve the browns much next season. Chris i mean i hope so today the and cloudy when they see him stay healthy which something he hasn't done person tire career You can get too excited. Because he's already played it on an on a line with another great. Jj watt but when he did when he was healthy he was phenomenal so for the browns is really a low risk type of deal. If he's healthy you expect them to play pretty well and if he's not healthy. There's a contingency in the contract. So i mean it's a it's a win win for the browns as far as i'm concerned and for gelabiyah. Cloudy bro hope. You say helping. Get that bag yeah. That's the key for jadon kenny. Stay healthy 'cause if he's healthy. He's a pretty productive defensive lineman he may give you all the sacks as you want but as far as stopping the run and this being disruptive he. He's he's pretty good doing those things. So i hope he stays healthy and he hopes that cleave around team next year all right greek. Nba legend. Michael jordan will present kobe. Bryant at the twenty twenty naismith hall of fame induction ceremony on may fifteenth bryant told complex magazine in two hundred seventeen that he wanted. Jordan are phil jackson to present him at the induction ceremony. So i'm gonna be stoked to see michael jordan up there introducting. Kobe bryant into the hall of fame. He had a pretty pretty good speech. When you were talking about kobe passing. So i'm going be very interesting to see what my turn to say when he had ducks into the hall of fame is dote that michael's during it. But it's also heartbreaking that michael's doing it right You would love to see. Michael introducing him and then having kobe come up and talk and and it just hit me again bro. This man gone right edges. Hit me bro. it's hurts. It hurts because he's such a king man he'll such king so it's awesome. That jordan is the one there. And i'm sure that a lot of be a grown man a lot of grown men with tears in their eyes Watching that Watching jordan introduce. Kobe bryant to the hall of fame. Yeah it still hurts out. Zero gonna stop hurting. Assess you know. We grew up watching kobe. We we grew up watching michael jordan as well so you know it hurts but at least you know michael jordan be there and like you said it would have been nice. He koby follow up and give his speech there. But mama lives on forever. I'll tell you this. You know. Kobe three some shots. You love kobe shots just like jordan. Some shots during his speech so I'm looking forward to that end. Not looking forward to that at the same time that makes no i get you a hundred and ten percent all right so that was headlines. Shall we move on to our first topic of discussion. So kevin durant and shannon sharpe seem to get into it a little bit and this is from what i'm hearing. This is based on shannon. Sharpe saying something about kevin durant. That wasn't necessarily true to quote. Was this early true. Thinking fill for like a fake kevin durant quote and and he did. Kevin durant was not h- about it at all it may seem like he was trying to discredit lebron. James's rings let me read you the quote that Shannon sharpe felt for people try to discredit my rings. But honestly i feel like they're the most valuable of our era people argue. Lebron is the goat. But if i beat him back to back finals then what does that. Make me shannon. Sharpe go on to analyze that. And then he would tweet a clip of him doing so on twitter so i mean uddhav and this is not the first time on cochet yes. This is not the first time that shannon sharpe and skip bayless have been you know Bathing into ambles right. Leist is so now was fake. I remember skip. Bayless also quoted something. I think it was sending james harden. I can't what it was but it was something that all remember what it was but i do recall a situation where had a discussion on what was otherwise. Faulty right kevin durant on the scene yet again bro. Good his but this time. I don't know. I mean physically here. We're gonna we're to disagree okay. Having durant is on the scene get again. And i just don't understand why like i get why he would come out and defend himself right. He said everybody's drunk all goes on tv again and the thing about him. Having beef with shannon is. I'll say this most black men in america aggrieved on ninety five percent of what he says probably even higher than that because he's he articulates himself well and we respect him so i ball. Don't you call ankle drunk uncle drunk uncle because he is coherent. Understand what he's saying. Now back to kevin durant who has to be on twitter at every second. I'm sorry that he's injured his comeback from the injury. Then he comes in these play. Certain games is on a minute restriction. I hope he gets help it. Because i love seeing them on the basketball court. I can't stand seen him on twitter. The always has something to say on social media bro. And that's who he is. That's cool with me but you can't go back and forth with the media personality particularly if they're not trying to go back and forth with you. I will say this on uncle shays point. I haven't heard them apologize for using that that faulty quote. But if you really think about it whether they quote exists or not it isn't changes analysis on kevin durant and i think that's where he's coming from the lottery were saying well. He needs to apologize because he used a quote bro. Like sit down and take steps and sit down because this is who kevin durant is he wants to. He likes the attention on social media and mt someone else part of the reason why he has his beef. Oracle shea is because lebrons. I'm telling you bro. I am telling you and i am will not be surprised if in kevin durant inner circles with that like well. He did lebron twice so he's got to be better than abroad. And if you really think that al cav you crazy maybe either drunk uncle if he really believes that. There's a lot of things that go into this. Okay let me let me start off by saying that. yes i do. Believe that shannon sharpe should've policy is because you're putting you're putting out false information about somebody. Let's just say this. Isn't kevin durant right. Lists said he put out false information about lebron james. He will be apologizing within the hour of doing so why he wouldn't do that. You know why he wouldn't do that because he will have a about lebron james online. Everybody football chris. So you wouldn't fall for that quote because lebron doesn't talk as much. Lebron speaks very clear came from him. That's all fine and dandy but the fact of the matter is that you put out false information about this man. We already know that. Kevin durant is on twitter. Twenty four seven right so he's going out there defending himself. You can't just say something about somebody and be a member of the media and then not apologize for san false information you gotta part ices met. It isn't mad at as on twitter all the time. It doesn't matter that's something. We think that he's sensitive about what people think about him. But the fact of the matter is if you are a member of the media you have to apologize for sending out false information about an individual. It is me or you chris. Not as big shannon sharpe. We would have to go and be like you know what this is not true. This is not what happened. Isn't that what he said. All right and shannon sharpe has to be aware enough to look into the information that he's putting out there as well. This is the first. this is the thing. If you're kevin durant. I can see him being angry but once you like everybody drunk on tv again. It's to me is the level of respect. It's one thing come on y'all share you wrong. That's not my quote. And i guarantee you like you know what i'm talking about shit like i know shape right. I'm sure it would have been like you know what. I made a mistake but to call him. You're drunk on tv. That's disrespectful bro. So that tells me you're not ready to have a grownup conversation. If i mess up and you approach me like shut the f up or something like that. It's a different moved to me. Come and see below. You made a mistake. His wife made a mistake like bed. I gotcha but once you come into drunk uncle basically we know it in the black community. What that means bro. We all know it as you coming me will fire. I'm gonna come right back at you with their fire. So i'm gonna say with this one hundred percent let me read to you. What shannon sharpe had to say about that particular quota. Kevin durant thought by winning the titles. Everybody was going to regard him as universally the best player in the nba. Barren even the bron james but very few people were willing to go there and then he's like because he said it if lebron jeans goat i beat the go twice and hit the shot in his building. What does that make me. So that's of what he said and then durant came back. You does mentioned it. Chris about the the drunk uncle. Y'all drunk okla here again lion. When did i say this so look man. I understand that he came back at him. But it wasn't like you don't know who kevin durant is going to come back at you if you say something about him. This is personality. He told everybody that we use it. Okay see that was a him. He was being faked in. This is his real persona. This is real personality and his forest. Shannon sharpe's concern. I have great respect. For what shannon. Sharpe does as a media person. We're both meeting you here right now chris. Trying to get to the level over shannon sharpe does but if this is me personally are based on what i seen offer shannon sharpe and what he presents out there. It see where he could be like. Okay i apologize for saying that quote. Let's move on. He didn't apologize but he's definitely moved on. He's to say anything about it. Let's let's say mean you. Were doing our podcast. Somebody comes on. We have a guest right. Who's alaska's we had on will we'll from we'll we'll spike right and he's like yo shut again lines. All of his listeners is gonna rub. You was certain way. There's a better way to handle that. And kevin durant refuses to handle it that way. Look at michael rapaport. We'll discuss discuss that about that. This niche because that's what he is. Michael board is this niche but at the same time look at the back and forth. Eighty hat with that individual camden ran has shown time and time again that he doesn't know how to approach people. And this is the thing you approach everyday joe's right you approach everyday joe's on your twitter and talk to them anyhow. You're not going to talk with somebody who has a certain prestige. Because i tell you this can name pulling up on oncle shack. We both know that you ain't pulling up all the he might be shame. I think he drunk uncle every corner. But you ain't pulling up on that man so you can't address that way in public. That's all i'm saying. If you listen to the way they used a tweet or use that quote you can take the quote out and still he can still make that point. Because there's no doubt when kevin durant went to the golden state warriors. He had a certain to win. Championships. and i'm sure that would get into a certain degree a certain pedigree but even beating lebron james twice in the finals. I don't. I don't know anybody who calls them better than Him better than a bron. James other than haters haters. Nobody's as his lebron. But that's the point right there. I've never heard him interested. He was lebron. James i've never heard that he should be better than lebron james. What this fake quote does is that it push yourself into head of kevin durant and you're assuming that he thinks these things and for so shannon sharpe who'd hold on and for someone like shannon sharpe to put that narrative out there now. That's what we're talking about. And i think that's unfair to kim. To read look has been consistent in what he's done for very long time ever since he left. Okay see you say. Hey this who i am. I'm gonna continue to be this person. So he gets point for me for continuing to be that person. He's been consistent in that nature. This reminds me of a quote that the late great. Dms had to trust people to beat themselves right. And i'm trusting. Kevin durant beam on the other side of the equation. Look at shannon sharpe. I trust them be himself to but if he's not gonna come on. Polish is for me. i'm not seeing. That has been his true nature now because he's going around pros as being a professional right. He's in the media when you're in the media you're trying to make sure that you give out correct information. You brought a fake quote. Just like you said chris. Ninety five percent of black men respect and trust his announces. So when you put that out there and you're kinda sorta saying that says something and think something that you didn't really think are say may nice unfair that man dude no doubt he said it's not fair bro. But my point is once you call somebody drunk uncle and all of our loyal listeners. Yaacob back me up on this man. you don't call. That is such an insult because we know what that means. So why have you come in with their energy you. He came with him respect. I'll be with you but he refused he. He decided he decided for death. Youngest say now you decide to death you big debt and as he decided. So i'm gonna say on this man but at least he's being consistent. I don't care who it was. It could have been skip bayless. It could have been steve stephen a smith. It could have been you chris. Anybody having to rent leave latin value. Just like that none. But i can't give you a pass at least you're consistent wound you consistently doing things that are not wise at least in the media because By the way he just made a lot of money on that The coin thing or whatever. It is a cryptocurrency kevin durant. I'm talking about so. This is why as far as making his money when his business partner rich climbing. They're doing their thing but as far as him being in the media doing all of this nonsense. Amount forward bro. I'm just not well. He did block. Kevin durant as far as i'm twitter and glad he did. Kevin durant came. Bagga said i'm the sensitive one. He showed a little picture pin bucket. You've mentioned that. Oh i'm this one now so mean a man we. We both look at a little bit differently. And just because i am now on this podcast i am now giving my information and it's going out there and people hear me. I don't want someone to hear me as they owe any said this and that's not true. You're saying cinema about somebody that's not true. If i ever give out false information even that person class back on me. This is me personally. I'm going to be like you know what i don't care what drove. Don't don't don't don't do that do that. Don't do that in a lion. Because i tell you brought somebody approaches you the wrong way. Even if they're right there's a problem. That's pretty this is going to be a problem. Silva going to do my own little clawed back. But i'm going to say bro because it's deeper than the beef you have with. That person is not even about giving ran for me personally is about giving out a false narrative about somebody. Okay and shannon sharpe is a very highly respected person in the sports world you cannot give out false narratives about players. You just can't if you let me let me give you an example. Let me give you an example. Give you an example. You'll head you know at some point not meet myself. Because i didn't do this but you know at some point you would go clubbing lot again. That's one of my wife. no now me. I don't do that. Clip be every night talking about actually been you step out. Somebody shoes ninety percent of the time. What happens my bad broke. You good you you straight. Everything's over and is good and the ends. That's the approach. Kevin durant but kevin durant decided not to shannon sharpe stepped on shoe phalle. Kevin durant did was he turned around. Blake you can clean it up. And it's like whoa. Whoa whoa why are you approaching me like this and all of a sudden fighting in the club. That's exactly what happened as they started fighting uncle shades club all he had to do my bag my bad and it's over but he decided to choose death and escalated to something that it wasn't various. I like your analogy. Chris i really do but it doesn't it at this particular instance. It just does it. Because there are three aspects to this right there shannon sharpe this kevin durant and then there are the fans of both these men right. You can't put out a false narrative about somebody and just brush aside. I know kevin durant he over him the wrong way. I know that he did. But like i said that's what does that's why you should check your facts. I for promote their first of all. That's a first fault of shannon sharpe. You can't just start spinning out on everything's see on twitter on social media is not true so you can't bring that out there on a on a very popular tv show and not have someone say something to you. I can't. I can't roll with the sorry. I love him. I love shannon's sharp. What he does. And i write kim iraq. Because he is who he is so physically on shannon. Sharpe site. your professional bro. I'm not saying that you are at fault. Because you're right chris. Kevin durant came in the wrong way. But i was still apologized for putting out that false neared. Oh so you're done like shannon sharpe. I'm gonna boys we disagree. It is what it is okay. We both disagree. It is what it is slow. We're not going to disagree on our next topic steph. Currys of beast okay steph. Curry has been lighting it up. He has been shooting the ball from all angles. All over the court and it just seems like men this. This guy's not going to stop the other night steph. Curry scored fifty three points and he became golden state warriors all time leading scorer surpassing chamberlain the other night. He was on his way to possibly beating. Clay thompsons three point record in a single game but there were blown out. Okay see so bad. At steve kerr tomino got sit down so he was able to do that. But steph curry's blonde hair and steph curry is is. I think he's a great shooter of all time. I think most people would agree with that. But chris is he the greatest point guard of all time. Well no i think the answer is no. But i will say this if i was going to. Argue is nothing. That's crazy right. And i think once he gets to the point in career. It's like the kobe jordan. Lebron who everything is the greatest you can make a case for them so for kevin durant a second wrestling. I had my brain. Get off your mad. Okay bro. don't don't do but with with steph curry. You can make the argument that he's the greatest point guard of all time. No he's not your traditional point guard. We think of a traditional point guard. You have a guy who still playing right now. In a chris paul. He's he's way more traditional point. Guard then a steph. Curry but steph curry is just he transcends really positions he is one of the poster boys even though they don't talk about him enough this way. He's one of the poster boys for positions basketball. He could do it all anywhere on the court literally anywhere on the cord and make a difference for his team so he may never lead the league in assists. Like a hardened can or like chris paul can but his ability to get open shots in distract. The defense is what allows a guy like a klay thompson. Who's all world in himself. Or like a dream on green on on drake with dollar or harrison barnes to get open shots so yeah he may not pass it to that guy who gets shot but just by his movement he gets that guy the open shot and he's transformed what we call the point guard and the more i talk about it the more. I'm starting right guard of all time. Because i mean let's talk about the list. You think about magic johnson right. I don't think he goes over. Magic johnson right so right now put magic one. But i didn't watch magic like maybe you have your little older than me right But i've seen enough of magic johnson. And i've heard enough about magic johnson and i've seen the rings and what he was able to do particularly not just in college but also in the nba. So i can understand. Put a magic ahead of him but someone like an isaiah thomas. It's getting harder and harder to do. That is really hard to do that. And then you go down the line. The line of people that i've actually watched and i think i might talked myself. If he's not a number one he's he's probably number two bro. Yeah i've always categorized as they had thomas as a shooting guard. Oh coming up. But i do get it. I do put magic. Johnson ahead of steph curry. But that does in no way diminish steph curry's greatness. You broke it down perfectly. He might not be able to facilitate the ball and get it out to. All of his teammates were open shots. But the we create shots for himself. Just give everybody opportunity to make shots and because he's such a great not great elite shooter. They're real definition of elite. He's able to space out the floor and everybody's able to get their own shot. We talked about lamar jackson on our previous podcast. Right this almost in the same category at lamar jackson because lamar jackson. Not your typical quarterback that can pass the ball over the place but he has such elite speed and elusiveness that it just makes everybody around him. Better is the same thing with steph curry. His shooting ability being a greatest ever played a game just makes everybody else around him better. And he's not traditional. As far as like chris paul or a jason kidd. But i gotta put him at least top three at least out three. I think. I think that's just if i miss. Somebody's magic is number one for me. Magic is is just trying to make sure going down the list because and it's also about i guess it's also about what kind of team are you trying to build right. Because will the goals wanna championship. The goal is win championship but steph. Curry candelabras it. Look look going on this year with steph. Curry look steph. Curry as far as ratings is one of the best to ever do it. He's a transcendent senate player. No doubt so. I just wanna make sure i'm thinking about this correctly because i think i'm this like you. I'm talking myself into getting higher and higher on that list because list. Yeah he's not a traditional point. He cannot surpass magic johnson because magic johnson pretty much the same day he did and he was able to get everybody involved in the game and just his his height and his basketball. I q for me makes magic. The greatest point guard to ever do it. And then you look at steph curry. He does it with his shooting ability and he does it with his ability to move out the ball as well and he just has his has lethal shoot. Ability is not we talk about. I mean reggie miller back in the day was a tremendous shooter steph. Curry has taken that tonight. The tenth power to me like it doesn't get any bigger than that. The only thing. I might downgrade steph. Curry about is that he doesn't have as many shots. I guess i wanna say he has a couple of them but not as many as you like and then when it comes to play it particularly in the playoffs absolutely but when it comes down to just hitting shots and going all those hot streaks we like oh my gosh steph. Curry blows everybody away with that. He he's on a hot streak right now that's unmatched so man. Yeah i just. I just really. You're you put it around. You hit around. And now he's revolutionizing the point guard position right now. Because you look at damian lillard you look at In a couple of the point guards they have kind of emulated. What steph curry has done because name was really hitting these not really about. He was shooting. Those dame's year s. I know not trying to do you. Put me in a position to defend dame and you did this on purpose. Him in dame earn the same category day wasn't doing this at first day was a hidden half court shots. At first he kind of now. But he's he's he's he's been this guy well he's been down. He's been played steph curry. I'm the saying that. Off from what i've saw steph was. I wonder religious. Start to shoot shots from all over the place. That's what i saw. I didn't see dame to that. I i know dane was a bad bad man before that but he added that to his repertoire because he saw because he started with steph. Curry was going here. We go he a bad man. He's a bad bad bad man. Bad bad bad bad. You know the thing about thinking about steph curry is what makes it so difficult to rank ms if you take every great player every single grape quit player in nba history. And say we're going to have a was set a fantasy draft right and we're gonna pick the players. I don't know if he'd go top twenty five and people say wow you really hate on him because to your point if you're building a team and you don't you don't know if you're gonna have a klay thompson you're going to have other shooters around. You may not want steph curry. You're probably gonna take a chris paul right but so i think that's what's so difficult about him to judge but when you just take a seat back and realize yes. He played in a great system with another great shooter. But at the end of the day what he's been able to do as just that quote unquote shooter at think when people say he's the greatest shoot of all time. It's almost taking away from what he does. It's almost like okay. He shoots but he does nothing else as it cannot be further from the truth. If you're young person who plays like wants to play basketball there's no greater example of how to play on the offense of an you would think i'd say james harden but notes steph curry because he's constantly moving mean you hope we hope all the time and what's one biggest complaint we have people who do not hoop they stand there. They don't move and steph curry made it cool to move. It used to be only the shooter's move around and try to get him out. He can't really dribble but not steph curry gerbil but he kills you by moving around so now only do you have to defend him when he has the ball. You have to defend him when he doesn't have the ball so that means you're defending for the entire shot clock right and he made it cool to move out the ball. He made it cool to shoot crazy shots wherever he wants to shoot the ball for him. Being able to move without the ball is just another aspect to his game. that's overlooked. That's what makes them so great kids nowadays they want to get on the court and shoot these half court shots does drivel one or two times and then shoot shots that they have no business shooting the ball with they. Don't understand that steph. Curry does a lot more of their stuff. That makes him so great. This guy spends hours and hours and hours perfecting those shots that makes a good shot shouts to apologize some bad shot when you practice that shot as much as damian. Lillard and steph curry do it turned into a gun. Somehow i got but what is does he have a sponsorship and our podcast pro because this is getting ridiculous but it goes into the conversation. When steph curry pulled up on the half court shot it gets okay. See was at back in two thousand sixteen hundred seventeen. That was a good shot because he knew what he was doing. He's president shot over and over and over again to where he's confident he's going to hit it so man as far as being a best point guard of all time. Greatest point guard of all time. I think that five per ten years down the line he might be that because he would revolutionize a game so much that will have people coming in emulating his game. And you'll look in be like man steph. Curry may look easy and trying to do the same thing. Trae young's perfect that right right right so i think that we may not see it now because we have people like magic johnson. You know chris. Paul just traditional point guards. There are making it harder for folks like me. I'm old head to say that he's the best point guard all time but come five ten years down the line we might be saying. He was the greatest point guard of all time. Because it's going to revolutionize the game it's already revolutionized lochlann just so much that we will be saying right. It'll be the people because let's be real the people who are watching a game now five to ten years from now they're going to be the ones talking about right after a we will be saying and people people five or ten years. Now be saying as well because look at how the game has changed right. because it's changing now. Would you would say. I think there's also a function of the people watching him now. Being part of the media right and then they get to an influence. What's going on. I think i think sooner or later. We're going to have to the route. These labels right because you can argue this is you can argue that. Lebron james is a greatest point guard of all time right because of what he's able to do on the court he's able to facilitate the ball and get everybody involved in the way that magic was able to do but he was a bigger strikes me though. But that's not that's not shocking to say because what have most people compare lebron to say he's now jordan but i'm just saying tiller mentality right complete. Bs though he's not labeled as a point guard he's labeled as a small grief you yes. I think there's a same category. our latest. There was history basketball as a shooting guard. That's all labels have kirby at the shooting guard because he shoots the ball. A point guard for me. Growing was the guy is going to go on the floor and get everybody involved. He's more looking so to pass. The ball is to shoot the ball. So will you ask me. He the greatest point guard of all time. I will say no because my idea of being a point guard is quite different. But the game has changed and it's revolutionizing so that ideally everybody is a center or power forward. The powerful position is dead the ideal way you look at a power forward is dead now. You don't have those antonio mcdyess. Dennis rodmans and the big bulky Otis thorpe kind of power forwards anymore. You had these strict fours and stretch. Fives is this. The game is chain so much man you can't you can't just label. These guys is being centers power for small four shooting guards point guards anymore with even the guy who just lamarcus aldridge. He's a guy that the nba. pass him up. His shot is money. Report line the markets outer shot was money but even him the game. Pass him up because he wasn't taking as many threes. No you're absolutely correct. One hundred and ten percent so right now we wouldn't categorize him as being the best point guard of all time but that does diminish anything that he's done and he's definitely number two on my list. I mean because you got to respect that shot all the way from the start at the court to end according he shot. And that's what makes him such lethal point guard all right so our last topic of discussion. We don't talk a lot of college football but trip lawrence trip. Lawrence had a bit of a i guess. I want to call it an interview with sports illustrated recently and he talked about a lot of things he talked about. You know way to bring to the game and just different stuff. But there's one particular quote for him that maybe wanna dive into right a little bit. Maybe one over analyze a little bit. 'cause that's what we do. We're we're part of me. You were gonna or is quotes all right. This is what he said. It's hard to explain that. Because i want people to know that i'm passionate about what i do and it's really important to me but i don't have this huge chip on my shoulder that everyone's out to get me and i'm trying to prove everybody wrong. I just don't have that. I can't manufactured at i don't want to. There's also more in life than playing football now. I respect for saying that. I mean not. Everybody is going to think that football is the the only thing that they have in the world and right. Everybody's not going to have a chip on his shoulder but does this kind of reflect his. I guess motivation to play the game in some sense. I mean you look at tom brady. No one has to tell you the chip on a shoulder at all times. You look at michael jordan. No one has a to to hit a chip on his shoulder. Kobe bryant shaquille. O'neal allow the greats. Just had that it internal self motivation to get things done. It was always like somebody was trying to get in their way. Are they had something to prove. Does that quote make you believe that. Trevor lawrence may not have some the prove or he may not have that inner drive in him. Well the quote tells me couple things how he grew up without based on a quote our soom socio economically that his family's probably doing okay right because that some of that hunger driver talking about is some sometimes not all the time right Sometimes people who've come up from rough situations not necessarily being poor as not what a murder saying just had tough things happen to them at young ages right. So i want to be very clear when i mentioned the socio economic. I'm not really necessary. Saying rich or poor. More saying he's he he had a situation that's probably he hasn't gone through something really bad or traumatic and it's life. I could be dead wrong. He could have had some really dramatic on live. And i could be wrong. But that's the first thing. I think the second thing i think is okay. That's fine. i never thought he was going to be gone because one thing. I do know this. If you're going to be a goat you have to live breathe and be whatever that thing you're chasing is it has to just it has to just consume your favorite being and basoglu like consuming. But i'm really good at it and instructs me very similar to like an andrew luck and if he turns if he has a career trajectory as an andrew luck. Some people may so angela. Tuck andrew luck retire early. he did. that's because he got beat up a lot if they protect this guy and he plays up to the level that we've seen him perform at clemson. It'll be just fine. Do i think he'll be the goat on this comment. No i don't think it's a chance he'll be the go but when i do think is. He's a phenomenal player. I saw him at clinton particularly in his freshman year. Do phenomenal things with the football. He has really good. I love the way he passes the ball. He's very athletic. Boy can fly with them. Golden locks he has the hair he got more can. Fly your stallion okay. So he'll be just fine if you're worried about him being good in the nfl based on this quote you worried about the wrong thing. I think for me. When i heard this quote i was like well. He's not the goat hunt. He ain't going to go but that's okay. You don't got to be the go that you don't have to be that you could have other emissions life and i'm okay with that you can be okay with it right. Everybody's not going to Be motivated to beat the best at what they do like that. And i'm not saying that he's not motivated but based off that quote that is definitely not the number one thing that he's thinking about in his life and you said it chris anybody that i know golden anything. They are consumed with that thing. They are obsessed with becoming the absolute best they would. You would never hear kobe. Bryant have a quote practice like he would tell you to eats breeze at sleeps basketball the same thing with michael jordan. Now looking at that quote i win. See see as being a red flag because we're talking about a different era players as well. Look at patchett maha on do that. Bro mahomes pedal hoses ever said that he eats breeze are sleeps football. But he's the best quarterback in the league right now and you know that he the ambition and a motivation to be one of the best to beat the goat. So i just look at this era of players and some of the comments that they make. It's just different nowadays. They're not they're not gonna be they're not gonna be. There can completely consumed with something like that. This is this is how it is right now. Back into a little bit different. I don't know about that because i don't. I don't know how. Patrick mahomes consumes football. I really don't because you're right. I haven't heard him necessarily talk about it in that way but when i do know is there are some people who see trevor lawrence is common. But i well. That's just a new age players. And i just disagree. It's not the new extra players. That's just how trevor lawrence fills and the thing about him. It's more frustrated. It may be more frustrating to hear because he has goat-like tomlin. We know that so when you hear that you're like okay so he's clearly not going to be the goat and i don't know people that rubs people so wrong is not. It's just it doesn't rub me that way. It's okay that he doesn't see the nfl like that particularly. Because i'm sure. I am pretty sure i could be wrong. That he's had a with angela. Andrews like look man. You're gonna get hit and it ain't worked at like i. I can honestly see him having that conversation your luck so i don't have a problem with what he said because i know he's gonna come out and now he's going to compete and i know he's going to be good so i'm i'm okay with man. I i definitely think there's a new ace thing because i think that a lot of these players are learning from previous players just like you said he might have had a conversation with andrew. Look andrew luck because they man is not working get hit like that and so he's taking a different mindset as to how seriously takes the game. I've heard different. People like area fosters. Say it ain't going back. In time. They would never football. He said on this podcast that he would play being over time. So are these statements that are being played now as opposed what was being said to me. When i was growing up was that oh man he's four. Players are gladiators they're going. They're putting their life on the line. You gotta go there raw. That's the mentality that we had. We had that mentality going in their crushing it and just being absolute best now. What these young folks are hearing quite different. They're hearing that football. Might not be the support for them that they might want to go to other avenues and just different things like that. Might change your mentality on how you wanna play the game. And that's what i mean. When i say these new school players they may not put it. All in like people would have done back in my day. So i just i mean. I'm not saying anything wrong with that. I just i just. You can hang always we always. We can always agree. Chris but that's fine but the reason disagree is is not is doesn't mean he doesn't work very hard and then he's but that's that could be taken out of what you said i mean can be taken out what you said. And he didn't say that at all all he's saying is i mean for what i the way i see this for week. One through seventeen or how many weeks they got down. Nfl he is. I think is eighteen because they added another week but either way he is going to play hard but he's okay with doing other things and i'm one hundred percent fine with that. I don't think he takes away from him doing what he does on the field and the thing i really like about him is it. It makes me think about russell. westbrook right. Everybody wants to play is harder as russell westbrook but you may just not. Everybody has that that motor that thing that that's what he's talking about is like i don't i don't have that so i'm either going to come in lot of you guys. Do i wish he kept to himself. Yes yes but is being honest. That's exactly what i'm saying to you. We'll talk about obesity that how people perceive it. How do you perceive him. Say that on the interview right. You look at russell westbrook. Because that's a pretty good example. We already know that russell westbrook pays the chip on his shoulder night. In and night out he has that relentless a'motor to this play. I'm beach you at any cost. But he said it when he was talking about. Stephen smith man like he's won a championship in life. That's important to him too. But you also know that import from do on the basketball court. But based off what trevor lawrence said. It was a combination of two things. Right you we all know to a certain degree that there's more to life than whatever sport that you're playing as an athlete right. Most some of them do but even the great so tell you know is all about football basketball or baseball right but the problem with me. Trevor lawrence is when he said that he can not manufacture having that chip on his shoulder. I think as a great player you always have to have that ability to take was someone says to you. Use that against us that as fuel but you. You said it chris based on what he said. I can't see him being the goat. And i think that's where our polls down to being the goat. I may have to backtrack amount coming. I'll say this to his defense thing about it in college in. Excuse me in high school heels. Probably call the best quarterback in the country and he wasn't probably was and then in his freshman year in nc double a. He went out and he didn't just beat alabama. He walked alabama and on his brain. He's never i think is more sound like i've really never been tested. He's never been criticized so he doesn't know and i think that chip he's more saying i can't even get up for the games because every time i show up i win so there. There's a chance where in because he's going to go through a bad teams going to the jaguars and their own. Four right and people were writing bad headlines about it about him. He may wake up. And i'm like oh no oh no. Oh this what you had to say about me. I'm coming for you. So there's a part of him that does does even understand criticism because he's been so good. I understand what you're saying. I really do but it goes both ways right. This is kind of like peyton manning and ryan leaf right you just you said it perfectly chris. Maybe hasn't had that adversity to get them to the point where he's like okay. I got a clapback but one or two things could happen. Just like you say. Chris he can start owen four and he can start off in the whole because it's going to happen wanna against the nfl. He's going to see a while. These people are really talented. Everybody is good at their position so he can use data black. You know what. I'm gonna play harder. And i'm gonna make football more part of my life or it could happen. He'd be like oh andrew. Look take this too seriously. So i'm gonna back now. I'm gonna keep on doing what i'm doing and i'm not gonna try to get any better i'm just gonna. I'm sure angela the intended. Msa say he said. I might he might take it that way. He might take it as he doesn't need to do. I don't think you'll take it back where he just if he fails he just he just didn't have it. He's a bust right side. I just i don't think but he would be a bust because he has the talent chris. Let's say they had the talent. He has been many layers born pigro. You have the talent you do talent right but some gop is. Do you have the mental. What you're saying but the guys just are your bust. I mean it just happens sometimes. But they're still reason why they're attributing this quote to him being a bus he'd be a bus because he's had enormous talent. It'd be as first time face guys at really challenged him and he doesn't to get off the mat. He doesn't have the mental forward to to do this. Do not today man. You can't agree with the easiest thing broke. The easiest thing is simple to be bad. Either you have it or you don't and based off. This quote is early indication that he may not have it just as now. He might be the greatest quarterback to ever live ever. He might go up there based on his shirt town his work ethic and go out there and dominate. It might happen but somebody's gonna hit him in the mouth eventually. 'cause all quarterbacks to go through that all players go through that who are trying to beat the goat and they overcome so i just don't know and i'm not saying he's gonna fall found his face. We don't know the saints will be one or two things this is. What every player. Either you're going to bounce back or you're gonna you're gonna fall to the wayside riley to me is a perfect example. Because he fell to the wayside he just did not have the mental to deal with the nfl giving him he did not have it. I remember to the video of him. Just totally be rating. This reported i was trying to ask them a question. I think that was the tipping for you like. I do not want to be edited quarterback. I just turned out. What do i hear what you're saying about ryan lee but there comes a moment where but you gotta understand. We thought you were no got understand. Go back in. The day is easy to say o'reilly bus now but back in the day it was like do we drive pay or do we dr ryan leaf remember. Remember i'm saying i get that. I guess my point is if you're a bus your bus but is not necessarily. It doesn't necessarily correlate with his quote he may just not have what it takes to be an nfl. Nothing do quote. Okay so let me let me ask you a question. Your question about this quote anti graduate. I i didn't need you can you. Can you understand at least this is. There's if he's a bus. It doesn't necessarily have to correlate with this quote. He could be a bus because he's a bus but what makes them a bust visas stiff. No no i'm serious. That's what makes you go to your mommy. Is that guys really popular. Now kevin samuels. He's like a size. But i'm skinny though but you attend though but i'm skinny as a question bro. I will have to say no. Because look what i'm looking at it like this. He has a talent correct. He has a talent to be successful in this league. we're seeing. He does have the talent. So what what characterizes him as a bust exactly. I think there's a lot of components that go with this right if he goes to the league and it's completely flakes and make the playoffs or anything like that yet. He's an absolute butts but there's different levels of bus right. Is he going to be jamarcus. Russell level but which i find very hard to the bus bro. What are we talking about because the bus. What is looking at. Because you're trying to you baas like that the listener can't see what you're doing a little phase i don't i don't know what mean that is. I read came and tell you that frustration looks a little frustrated because it's not that simple to me. Could you say he asks. We correlates with the quote as far as him not succeeding in fill. It doesn't necessarily have to corley with that quota. But i do most of it will because of who trevor lawrence is. He's the first overall pick and he has the talent to be one of the best ever played a game. So i do think that if he does not sure the as that inner drive to to make it over to hop or make over any adversity. Then yeah that will be part of it. But he thinks he didn't even say that he said he's not going to manufacture chip it. Ain't there yet with it when it when it comes there because it's going to come is going to be a moment where someone. Maybe he's one of those. That's that's what i said. I was on your nick sees. Yeah that's but eventually because what we're doing is we're trying to see chris. I think that's a problem. There is no but now i changed my mind. I gotta say how he wrecks to adversity and this support. I know yet. That's the point. We no-one knows dispelling. A whole bunch of stuff based off. This i know is a lot to speculate off of warren quote. I understand that. But i like kevin samuels this. Are you dress. I stand but you keep saying i'm skinny. Understand it bro. Bad this injury history behind it. That's why is so. It's very easy for me to explain. Because his history by lose seeing greats all the greats have that chip on their shoulder they just do and i think that if he's not trying to be a great then whatever i guess is not that big of a deal. But if you're a number one draft pick in the nfl year quarterback people are going to expect you have expectations of you to be great. And that quote man. I don't know might be a little bit a red flag. Maybe who knows. We'll see we shall see all right if this is your first time. Listening to our podcast. Please subscribe to our podcast.

Joining me are two of the most hard worke co host in the universe. Not the world not america but in the universe low no word. I appreciate that man. 'cause you're absolutely right absolutely. Fm right baby was coming down time. You feel so day and to my right now. A no one was good. Y'all you. I am good. Y'all brought to end. Jesus i try i try. I like i feel good show. Hey man we. I've been speaking to do it all the time. We're not that great rural we're okay We poured celtics. Yo man shot in the dark man. X searle simmons who passed away. Bmx one of my favorite rappers of all time did not know affect me as hard as it did. Grew up listening to his pretty damn near all the albums. i love his hardcore style. I love his poetry. I love how years as far as what is rap. Didn't care too much for party stuff. But everything else i love. And he's always talking about the struggle that he had he was if not the real one of the rivers rappers out there and i appreciate that big big shoutout to recipes. You know so crazy. You mentioned him. I'll put them in a category like poc because the reason why beloved pox so much is hard but they relatable right to life and that's what. Bmx is hard. Buffet relatable my favorite song from being. What's my name right. But he has some of the hardest leagues. You hear that song. But he also has bay relatable lyrics empathy empathizing time so the kid be spending lyrics was i was not about bayrock that light. But we had those moments where he'll make you sit down and think this dude has an album albums and he'll stop there in the middle star praying. Yes okay and it's not like okay. No thanks this is a full blown. Yeah i mean he has controls and altruism to spring straight up. Just a part of that is when you're able to make a grown man cry into your music still fill hard at the same time because there's that balance a lot of rappers aren't able to do it and he was able to do it man and this dismal hurt me. They really did. I'm tired of seeing black men. Go this early. We lost mike. Michaels fifty prince dot young relatively as well and then in the week where we have a versus battle with What's it the old. Has ron eisley winning. Live which is beautiful to see. You wanna see art as we grew of watching ron and so many of them are going so young. He wasn't a versus with snoop dogg or not too long ago and mexico. I'm not allowed to look and who is moving really slow you know. Come on man you gotta get back and say that's all thinking in my head of watching it but it was tough and only say if you've ever relatable but he was very vulnerable and that he made himself very very vulnerable. I mean when you look at any views very open about the battles. He went to this my favorite songs from the mex- were those damian singh. Those are my favorites because it's literally a conflict between a man. His desires the battle between doing the right and wrong and then break in the naturally going and ball and then related going back and my gosh. Give me what i've done. You know to give me from my sins. And but you see the ups and downs where he continues to the keeps on comeback. All coming back stronger and then they they have. This relationship is love hate relationship. You know so. Those are my favorites the storytelling because while he's spitting his lyrics literally. Visualize those conversation. He's really visualize every single thing that he's going through a those moment and most of the songs anyway Burma yea. I mean he he. He's an artist. Listen through listen. To throughout my teenage years especially popping our mandate play. It was a tough. It's still got same to somebody other day. I'll just say why why can't favorite artists a lot. Why can't see them grow old everytime they reached forty eight fifty yes man but recipes. I truly believe without makers believe god said. Hey mark some stuff you come back. We were good very well. Fit all right. Let's get into a segment. Famous athletes famous quotes new jail. Sports gas presents famous athletes famous forms. All right so this house is works. I'm going to name out some clues or get to give you some clues and as the clues on. Sammy names like that once. I give all the clues if you know what is shout out. We don't know who it is then so be it so to be clear. How many clues wait before. I get this rate Forklifts that's a lot of clues. I'm pretty sure you'll get to. I think you're gonna get this right. I'm pretty sure you guys will get this right because you wanna play. I'll give you. I'll give you to do now. You can listen to get it now even if you get her of you. Don't get it out the words. I'm gonna play this athletes most famous quote all right first clue. He wasn't eleven time. Nba all-star and eleven time member of the all nba team. He was the nba all star game. Mvp in nineteen ninety one. He was the fifth overall. Pick in the first round of the nineteen eighty-four draft still nothing. His number thirty four was retired by the auburn tigers. You know yano it is Yeah i know now okay. He won most valuable player. Mvp nba nineteen ninety three s. It who you guys think it is. This one is my favorite person on television Probably your favorite person on television sir. Charles barkley round mound rebound mound rebound before. I don't wanna step there's a play. There's a lot of quotes might as match house burghley quotable and let the reports. But there's one that is particularly favorite for me is not because of the quotas self. Yeah is because the way someone mocked the quote is can i. Can i guess with the code is is it the when he talks about the big woman in san antonio is not doubt that market shake shack. Of course shagged. Evli did the bucket. Okay let me let me go ahead and play the quote unquote Charles barkley said to be. It's going to cost you money. You can't control me money. I'm i get paid regardless of what he says tummy should never say to me. It's going to cost me money. I thought the offensive today from beginning to end chose the most physical team played this hacking continually play his ear. What difference hack physical. There's all right. So as a quote by charles barkley favorite quotes by him is because on to show the tnt show shack for some reason. Maximum is like a file. And i don't know that. Just i roll everything time. I hear. Shag seda a hack badge. Charles has an enormous amount of. I could have played. Many many many of these quotes. But that's just a one. B abbas shaken charles. Always going at it going back and forth and and that's just one of the other moments where they they kind of get each other's nerves but that is one of my favorite quotes there is a famous athletes quotes. Speaking of quotes draymond green. It seems like we're talking about him on this podcast and his quotes every single week betray mongering had another quote and this quote was on the e. t. c. Podcast was kevin durant podcast where he said young. Nba players are softest hill. Says they lack competitive spirit. They sought this hell. I find myself trying to talk to some of these young dudes. That won't talk and you're like trying to be a friend that's what these young dudes do. Nowadays i don't understand it so it is basically talks about how i guess. They're not tough enough. They don't have tough skin. So i mean. I don't know man hold on is draymond. Green the guy. Is you ever watched women. I'm doing well either way. Is this the guy who after losing to the oklahoma city thunder guide to a vehicle and was crying and call kevin durant saying kevin actually didn't lose it under lost lebron james my bad and also the brawn james in game seven after having a seventy two win seasons call. Kevin durant on my. We need you when you bring that up because on the same podcast draymond. Green says he never called up. Kevin durant says. I have the audio here. Let me go ahead and play that audio for narrative. Light you call. Kevin kevin cry from the it can be young added a theatrical movie. You gotta make for tv. You gotta add on. People just started pouring on grubber. I wasn't about to come into the j. was just coming come on roads but even if that's true that's true. He never denied recruiting kevin durant. Maybe cry. I made me quietly sobbing sobbing quietly however he wants to frame it. He recruited kevin durant to a team. That won seventy two games because they lost it. That's not the definition of soft. I don't know what is because even if he didn't recruit kevin durant if kevin durant said. Hey i'm coming to the golden state warriors if he was as hard as he saying these but like now to wins one minute away from winning an nba championship. We don't need you but he didn't do that. He took those championships. So i don't wanna hear about soft. What is he talking about. So you're you're more interested into person that's actually saying this as opposed if what he's saying has any relevant if what if what he says is actually true and absolutely. You can't come out and be like i'm hard and then you're not hard you can't do. It'd be like come on from their third ward at third coast. Baby we all not a living no third coast as lies. You can't beat that person to do that so you say he doesn't even have the credentials to call anybody. Saw zack. no no you ain't got the cray. I disagree because the same guy. He recruited whether he sobbed or gave him a lollipop. Don't come on over. He cut turnaround and call. Kevin durant the b word right. So how how hard can you be called a generational talent. The b word and guess. What happened the next year or right after this season kevin durant said. I'm gone because he's got caught me. Call me a be so really and truly. Who's a south out right. 'cause to me is probably k. d. That's okay that could be true. But i'm talking about but but whole all right all right. Jump up all right because this guy was saying to shows ago there will be. Olive teams retired by stay exhausted. Two shows goes be still is what i think off one agoura katie. That's what i feel when it comes to this generation of of of basketball players and my grandma monarch eighty i mean very mark. Appreciate it and and they've been several. The same sentiments going on with in the nfl owed has talking about the same thing all the jersey swap. And all this here the o'hare they'd be like what's going on back in the day when we're on the field warren friends into the parking lot. Right when you got these guys exchanging jerseys you got fellows picking up other teammates off the ground and things like that. It's just like where's that competitive nature right. And then i think it's really interesting because draymond green says well. He finds still trying to talk trash some of these players but they don't talk trash back they wanna be nice. So that's really off putting that's kinda like andrew luck. He has heard the story and look he. He'd good job you and good play exactly exactly after a second told you all so it makes you either. Want to hit them harder. Hit them at all. So that's counterintuitive counterproductive. But i agree with your mom grants going. I wanna see that physicality is gonna go back to that. I don't think so. I really don't but i think there's just a way generation but i i gotta say pistou sorry to jump on your show to be the guy who's be run the past ten years. It's been either lebron james for the most part or a warrior seem winning right so they've set the tone what's hard and what's not so if he's he can't say the generation that's coming to soften his generation procedures generation. They watched his warriors win. And you can argue. They have the softest championships ever when they get a d. So you can have all that around you got. Nobody's mean nobody's afraid of steph. Curry klay thompson kevin durant. I mean he's attacking you know comedians. Everybody's thought so you can't call them solve. Don't get it twisted. It was any of those four people in this chris going to smack. I dream mongrels last. I'm a smack in that line but my point is you cannot be part of the generation that soft and say everybody soft number. You're just as part of it. I think you're poop went on wars a little bit band. You can't go down a list of warriors. I don't think thompson saw i. Don't think steph curry assault to be honest with you. Think they're solve. They may have an approach to the game. That's a little bit more reserved. But i want to necessarily call them. Let me let me ask you this question. Are you afraid 'cause there's certain nba players. I'm like i'm the court he says soft. We know what we're talking about here right afraid of these cats. Let's let's break down. What he exactly said okay. He said that he tries to talk. Trust whose opponents. But they don't say anything back to not necessarily that they're nice this little. They don't say anything. If you respond to someone trash-talking does that mean you heart. If anything does that necessarily mean you're soft i don't i don't really. That's a conclusion that he came to. I hear what you're saying right but draymond green conclusion was. I'm gonna tell you one thing. If if i'm on the core klay thompson and i talked to klay thompson. He's gonna talk trash but by might say nothing clay. That's what i'm saying. I'm saying he's mentioned the name though. If i'm talking smack the klay thompson he goes back to me. If is steph curry. He may i say anything of words. He's going to draw them buck zombie. That's for sure. So i think i don't think that's necessarily soft like you're saying i want to go as far as let's be clear. What are we talking about here. And i'm i'm trying because there's definitely level there's levels to it is definitely right. So there's a heart in his context. I just don't see those two players as being soft. I think in his. I think we read a little different from saying. And i think that's fair but i think the way i hear it is he saying y'all soft yelling at heart and i don't understand that you can't be the guy that's part of a championship team that you could argue is a softest team of all time and say other people. Ain't hard bro geico. You went because we talk about had andre dollar on eighteen can say him draymond green and they would have to. Probably hard is more physical. I'm i'm taking to physical standpoint. Yeah we're talking about minute. Sports is all about the huffman gruff. Hey y'all this all about the aggression of talking smack talk exactly. So that's what i'm looking at and that's how you see you can feel that heat. You feel that energy. Feel that. That competitive competitiveness radiate fire that fire. Exactly so he ain't getting that. I think young guys now i guess that comes the that maybe they know how to arnesen comes out and play but he plays a game the professional love and he may see that well. Y'all easily rattled because once things don't go your way you don't know how to come out of that mental funk right whereas me who will draymond green. I'm a little bit older for me. I can man my way out of that out of that funk right that's wack to tomato but i'm i say that whack because draymond green thirty one years old agra. He's thirty eight years old and nba fifteen blesses. Oh forget. he played multiple years in college. So that's what mrs me. The most i understand. German green has a lot to say which is why love and by the way i hope when he retired go straight to tnt and he does the stain but he has this kind of thought process in his head that he's rohrer then he really is dead. He's better than he really is. And that's cool because that's how that's the energy has the move with you. Play with steph curry klay thompson and kevin durant. You can't go out here saying this next generation solved. You just can't do that broke so what's going on with trae mongering nowadays though i was on the greatest defensive player of all time then he added the comment about megara lino women and now he has. This is this is kind of baffling to me. His statement but maybe he understands it right. I wouldn't go around saying that. Kawhi leonard is soft. If you talk smack the quiet he might as look at you and just start laughing at hysterically. Say think back to you but that doesn't make solve this because someone who's not willing to trash talk with you. Does that mean they're soft now to your point low. If you trash talk him you know like you know larry bird's doing the day try to get your head and it messes with your game. Yeah you might be a little bit soft and the court. I don't think that's what he's talking about. Because i i've never seen a moment be accurate by wrong. Where he's on the court and he's trash talking to somebody and he had a bad game that game. So i don't really understand that's my point of like you can't beat the guy delivered that message and that's another point that that's all i'm saying is this. He says he's the greatest defensive player of all time. If you go back and listen to podcasts. I had no problem with that because he actually has won a defensive player of the year award so he has some clout to do that in this conversation. He just doesn't have that clout no ruins it for me. Honestly and truly as far as him saying that the players are not tough or that. They're soft dolittle altercation that he had with tristan thompson right. I don't know if you guys remember now ain't no exactly exactly but he wasn't saying something at first but then draw was gonna get a little bit and i saw a different side of truth. No i'm not. If would call the air work. I go and then there's a story that they actually met up in up in one place so i'm just be that's what i heard. I don't know vis true. But that's the thing that rudolph for you saying that you got popped up and and and that's exactly what i wanted to say. He's he can't be the guy delivering that message because we haven't seen it on the court. Either right. I'm not advocating for nobody fighting but at the same time i've never seen a superstar back down from draymond green i seen players back down from kevin garnett. I've literally seen it someplace. Like i'd not tonight right but i've never seen that with draymond green and to answer your question you said. Why is he doing this now. Whether tenth standings klay thompson not there. The team is you know they're borderline decent. I mean so. He ain't got nothing else to talk about. Is really what it is and you say you care for playing games either. I'll know to what degree worry about him. And i'm they absolutely right l. Play games. I almost got about those two but now the bottom ten and had to play games to get to the playoffs so i forgot about that too but that was still those are interesting. This help me. I don't care what anybody says. Those are interesting health but going back to what draymond green had to say about players being soft. And i have read see anything on the court you know regime rondo right news quiet but not if it were regime. Rondo i i could just see draymond green trying to talk smack trade but this is bad exactly my point message the messenger. It doesn't fit the messenger. So who exactly is he talking to. Third fourth string player practice squad. Who who's talking. I don't know that's where my question is talking about. I put a name on it. A rookies. maybe let's defend this generation. A little bit days talking about them being software. You just mentioned it about to jersey swapping on stuff. I don't look at it as being solved at all. I look it as being actually better than what we used to do. Back in the day you have enough respect for another player to swap their. That's respects him. Exactly i'll give you for example. Paul pierce lebron. James and paul peirce mine. He's hard but his hate for lebron. James really just comes off as really whack. He's a better player than you. Don't need a hate on them and that's the thing with this generation. People say their soft is not we all hope with each other. I've known you you because now we travel all across the country so we know every superstar is before they're superstar. We see it on youtube. We see it on on instagram about tiktok now so to say they're not to say there's no need to have their animosity. We all made it now when we get on the court one of us is going to win but that doesn't make them soft after the game. They exchanged jersey soccer players. Been doing that for years. And nobody cardinal soccer player. Soft right the yellow right and we just really talk about the psychology of this. I'm just going to give us an example of how our parents our parents are. First generation left the country. Glenn nigerian came here to the united states. Try to bring the influences of africa and the way they were grown up and bring it here and you see amongst our siblings. The oldest of still hold were partial. You know to our parents in terms of holding onto those traditions right and then as time goes by you have more children by the time we got down to my brother. Oh he got away with everything right. You sound alty bro. I but you have okay just a little bit but the allows us some of the things he was able to do even some of the mindset. Yeah right it's a little bit different now. The way draymond green is looking at. I'm gonna compare myself draymond green the way we look at it as dysfunctional and probably mental and mentally unhealthy. Because we wanna be physical. Wanna bring out really the worst out of a person we wanted to talk. You want them and here. We wanted to see it. Wanna elbows wouldn't be physical these days where well the newer the younger generation are the upcoming generation. They're like well you to do all that we do. Matter of fact. I'm still stable. I'm so cool my mental. Why don't care enough about you know getting to that that my skills just speak for itself. Yeah right so we can be cool on the court. I'm still beach. Is on a court. Kim and then we will share exactly. We're going to change instagram's all list of now we're gonna hit the club. But while you're talking about is almost like a generational gap absolute draymond. Green is still part of the generation. That's just thirty one. That's the weird thing that's doesn't make it so for example somebody like Anybody who's thirty eight and retired or even who's still playing is thirty eight like jamal crawford or even lemon pepper liu so when i bleed 'cause it's like fifteen sixteen seventeen years in the league and dream on is not that it's just it. Don't make sense like come on a podcast. My first pockets or man all on my fifth episode. all the other podcasts. They week what was three pro. Where's the background. You got it for me personally. I do look at this generation as being softer but to this labeled him as being soft. I can't go as far as to say that. I just can't When you look at what we were doing back and this is you know two thousand nine these yeah. It was a more physical game but getting rid of kelly helped a gay man. That's a good point right so it's it's an evolution and this is because the game has evolved into what is now does not mean that the players are soft. It makes me so mad smoke so you have a players so yeah y'all older right. Y'all nineties basketball and some cases eighties basketball. It wasn't great basketball. Y'all be roja watching. Anthony mason throw his body in in sixty six hundred. Sixty two game fourth quarter. That's not hot to me bro. does not. You're you're talking about particular teams. Those are some back in. The eighties gives a high scoring game and that was good. That's true i was in the nineties. Right right really happened in the nineties. Where the basketball was not as good. It just wasn't seen a game seven at sixty six sixty in. It's not interesting in the fourth quarter. That's not dope. there's no skill. no thanks anthony mason. I'm picking on him. But you always veggies you watch it. He's strong but he wouldn't survive in this nba. You need scale survive in his mba. And if you don't have it it's not gonna work kinda like you're taking you're taking a and now becomes a weakness right okay. Let's use shaquille o'neal you gotta shaquille o'neal a young secure. O.'neil maybe would've survived this league but maybe shaquille o'neal as prime probably wouldn't have been factor and as you saying. I mean we're talking about spreading the floor. He's got to go and he's got go in and guard somebody out in three because that senate is going to be shooting threes. Okay you you feed them all day. He's gonna be dunking going on everybody. But how much of a factor is you really going to be in term to. You wanted the game. Because he's got to guard that stretch five or the stretch for you know what i mean. So he'd taken him onto elements. You take tools away from people. So maybe that's what months. He's probably has a mindset although he's only thirty one older than him by two years but the way he plays. The game probably emulates the eighties and nineties. Maybe inhales rain into his in his brain. His game is not that which is very funny. That's why he can understand where you're coming from guys right near a lot more skilled right when you look them in the face. They look really really young. We looked at twenty three four year old basketball players back in the day. These looked like grown men. They exuded manliness. The aggression the physicality that you think of you know athletes in basketball players whereas now little brother you know what i mean man. He's shaked shakes. You manage a it up for other people. I i get your opinion low. I'm clear if playing week we've had his he. Would he be killer. Now we've had discussions about check before check in this generation will be destroying everybody everywhere. Now i think more so talking about shack when he was like into phoenix suns. That's relevant this. Prime minister will be eating this league up. They will have to change the rules because it be too sex. No doubt no doubt but you do good interesting point as far as offensive in which i think was my argument when we talk about this new about check out a while back but anyway this generation last generation whatever is evolution and we are we are now. I would love to have seen dennis. Robin played this. This league right now. The worm our love him go head to head with draymond green. Then we'll see who was soft because he he's one guy you don't really think of it. He's really say a lot but he will get in your head. He was at a net irritate the hill as lonzo more one. That went to kill a problem that is loaded with never best with allows. What it yes sir. Is there a couple of players only absolutely not a the way guys. I agree you had hit a push for that. Because i remember. I'll never get him in their jobs. I'm like oh he's nothing heated series but at least you could have landed one suspended patches would y gosh they hate or that's an interesting story might do a we talk on them. Yeah alonzo mourning in johnston all right very good stuff. Guys are knicks topic of discussion overrated underway. Hugh logan leading all right. Lamar jackson quarterback baltimore ravens. A lot of said about him. I heard a radio show tonight. You're tomo lamar jackson. Fifty fifty on one side. They're saying all no lamar jackson's electric. He's definitely that guy. He's a top five quarterback in the other side spectrum. Naaman the mark. Jackson is not that guy. He is having any skill. if he didn't have his feet. He would not make ends instantly. So is lamar jackson. Overrated are under this one. I struggle with because if you know my take on quarterbacks i think for the most part most quarterbacks are overrated based on the way they're paid and nfl. But when talking about lamar jackson. The reason why. I'm going to go the ops from really what might take usually is. I'm gonna say he's underrated only from this aspect when people say all he does is use his feet will. Excuse me. That works right. You can't just say. I'm not talking about fifteen years from now. I'm i'm talking about two seasons from now coming into next season. Is he one of the best quarterbacks and then in the nfl and answers yes because what has he done since he's been a star nfl. His team has led the league in wins and one season where the number one seed yet. They're upset early but he won the mvp that season and last season. They wanna play off game. So excuse me if you have a quarterback get your team to the playoffs. They guess your team to a very good record every single season that they're starting in i don't i don't see how you can be overrated. I i just don't end the only people say he's operated all. He does use his legs. Well that's fine. We're not talking about five years from now are we. Talking about is coming. Into the seasons. The overrated underrated. I think he's underrated. Come into the season because too many people care about okay. Can they start throwing the ball. What about his feet. I don't care about that. I've seen what does with this. Do you think is going to lose his athletic athleticism this season. Not he's not. i'm for me. That answers inconclusive. Because until you put come on man it's inconclusive inconclusive. I'm all about the booth with the referees. Under eight overrated. We'll go buck. Here's wasi is inconclusive. Stubborn do drove. I'll give you answer a go. Go what the okay go ahead go ahead. The guy doesn't have legitimate receivers so who exactly is doing to you. Don't even have legitimate tight end. Maybe one i think he's got a legitimate. We're okay mark. Andrews is good. Okay but i thought he's got all right last year had does brian and everybody else and then one good. Who's you don't a ball to. How are we going to throw you out of a game. If you're able to stop the run. Has anybody really successfully stopped the run. Stop them from running not necessarily so in terms of electrification and using what he has best to win games yes. He's the best quarterback at using in the league or one of the best quarterbacks in terms of using his gifts to full potential using his legs. Because he ain't got nobody throw to so guess what they're going to the playoffs consistently they've got a good defense when it comes to just purely playing a game of quarterback and judging him off of not necessarily use your legs and that's taken completely out of come out of the equation but in terms of job and back analyzing and defense during the ball and delivering it where it needs to go and throwing you out of games or throw you into games and using your arm the win games. That's that's not necessarily a determining factor because for me if we're just using that aspect of it he's overrated. He hasn't wanna throw to so. We have a really judged him based throwing aspect in terms of just playing a position of quarterback leading your team. So when absolutely he's he's he's possibly underrated right in the top five quarterback in that position now once we get him some receivers because we see what's going on during free agency t. y. Hilton that did not that wouldn't go and play for baltimore for whatever reason of juju didn't exactly what you do. So the fact is you have to and these not top five top tim out right there. Good receivers their receivers. But you can't even get a good receiver to go your team. What's really going on here. So is that. is that an issue with arm. Talent was design of the offense that that you know this predominantly run heavy offense that a good or diesel receiver still chooses not to play and be that receiver. Juju would have been a number one receiver for that team. You don't want you to know as a good thing. I have you but if you're going to pay him number one receiver money and free agency sign a long term contract. At least if he ain't nobody else except for the tied in well the only other person you don't want to juju smith schuster and to respond to that to respond to what your saint. I think you fell into the trap. That a lot of people do they say okay. The lamar jackson the quarterback lamar jackson the quarterback runner. No you're just a quarterback so if you run the football well as a quarterback. You're still a good quarterback in five years from now with this may be completely different conversation ahead into next season. He still has those lakes. He's able to run. Do i want to see him. Progress as a passer. yes. Do i think they. They need better receivers. I do think they need that. They need to expand the offense but to say okay. The throwing quarterback lamar jackson is okay. The running quarterback as much better misses the point. He's he's both that he's a passer and he's a runner so he should use his gift and coming into the season. I'm calling him under eight. So you both as underrated right now. I'd say right. Now he's underrated under thousand inconclusive assets on the radio so i do you chris. He's a quarterback that uses his legs and use his arm. He's a dual threat quarterback. Now the receiver for me. It doesn't work for me. Because when i've seen lamar jackson and big time games where his legs have become relevant still makes inaccurate passes right so that for me just nullifies whole receiver thing. Even if you had calvin johnson randy moss art jerry. Rice there if you're gonna miss the throw and they're not going to catch. It is a matter who you have out there. The second thing i want to mention is coaching staff. I think that he has a great coaching staff that was able to utilize his strengths and is propelled him to be. Mvp caliber now. He has that was not as good as far as designing plays and utilizing his legs. We might be talking about. Lamar jackson like man. This guy's not that good because again. His legs would be taken out of the equation namely one quarterback that doesn't have a good coordinator this one. You can't do that no no. no. I'm not able to say the offense is built around him. You every offense is built around. I'm just saying that they have utilized him to the max. I don't think that there's a lot of other coaches that we would do that. Lamar jackson they might even say. Oh i don't want him. I don't wanna play with him. Because i want to go back there. More fits their system. Does that make sense. You were just saying how many people use that arguments my point. We'll so it to him and they maximizes. He really can't complain like no. I'm not saying there's another show about the off. Their office. a corner of their their offense them back then fell catches up. You catches up with you eventually right. And they'll come a time. Where okay you just lou. And so so. That's where he'll need to show that throwing prowess right. That's why for me in order to really determine the full scope of who. He is as a quarterback right. And i've watched games where he's very inaccurate. Is that just because he needs to work on throwing the ball better. More accurately has always been an issue. Are we talking about office of line issues. We don't know we haven't seen enough with good receiving around him to resume giving them that much so k. Resort both we are talking his. Y'all bove's i don't know if you haven't seen anything it sounds like you're both saying over eight. He said underrated now understand. Low saying underrating but his explanation sounds like he's overrated. Also more sewed where i'm saying you i'll guarantee hit that. What you say on the nail so you look at offenses like the wildcat and just different schemes. That have come to play. They're irrelevant now. And i look at what they were running with. Lamar jackson in that same aspect when it comes to the big time games where good teams they. Okay you're not going to beat us ran the ball. He has not proven to me that he is a good enough passer to help them win. Games i'm not saying that it's two separate things. I'm saying that he has to evolve as a passer in order for me to really characterize him as an elite quarterback. And i think that's what some people are doing more than not more than that people are saying. He's an elite quarterback. Just because he's top five if you wanna as top five. Because of the way us is his legs does not mean. He's an elite quarterback. Okay let me make that so underrated you know as you. You're changing argument. You brought league quarterback part. So so what i'm saying. I'm saying the question was is underrated. Overrated. and then you're saying i don't know if he's an elite quarterback. I don't want to shift the conversation to something else. i think. I think that people enough people are saying that he's okay so if you are saying someone is elite or you know just one of those words elite good then you have to take into consideration. Well if you're saying. He's elite list. Compared to other quarterbacks and as far as compared to the other quarterbacks i'm going towards the pm orated a know people say that he's elite to where he does not compare to the quarterback especially come playoff time. That's my big thing when it comes playoff time and they're able good teams are able to take away his legs. He's just not as effective. He's actually pretty pretty bad. Based on what i've at tennessee. Titans for me. That was the game that makes me call him underrated because in that game. They did everything they could to take his legs away into passing away and he was able to do both pretty effectively so i was very impressed in that game. But when you talk about. So you say elite quarterbacks and we put them to the point where. We're talking about super bowls. Most quarterbacks have won super bowls. It's been almost a decade. Since aaron rodgers has even been to a super bowl but he a quarterback in the marsh. Sure sure but my point is if you're not getting to the super bowl you're all in the same bunch anyway. I mean you're own. The same bunch isn't that is about. It is about also projecting. A person will be right the prediction for lamar genuine season. We're talking about one season right about ten season. Once he's my hands on the last two seasons he's been to the division round of the playoffs that those facts right. What i'm saying coming into this season what there's a lot of people have the same sentiment as you right now. Okay show us. The show was armed down. The show is all that. I'm saying that's fine in three years. You may be right but coming into next season. He's underrated okay. So i love that. Not even ready made your argument of that but it's just as far as the playoffs. Are concerned advocate. Enough are lamar jackson into the playoffs to put him necessary. Net elite category. That's that's pretty much. What does it for me and a lotta. He's not in the same category. Would allow the quarterback stone. I mean do you guys think he's quarterback man. I know so if you're saying he's not only quarterback and this is for you to say overrated underrated. You have to put a label on him. That right and what most people are sane. And i may be wrong. But mostly for the lamar jackson's the league quarterback i've heard that okay so he's back. I got to think about that. I got to think about that. Because i don't wanna i don't wanna give this a rationalist i i think we can throw in ahead of him. Tom brady patrick. Mahomes the watson. Quarterbacking chris hold on for. Now go ahead go ahead. You had to go. Maybe though homes. Yeah air raj. Aaron rodgers us russell wilson quarter weight. But and that's why he's overrated this to me if you are questioning now has not hilarious. Listen obviously had the better career. I'm not saying that. But i'm only going up. I'm only going based off of last season last season. Russell wilson did not have a good season. He did not okay but last season he didn't have even him having not having a quote unquote last good season season. I still thought he was a bit of core. And lamar jackson. Those a strain or stretch. So have russell wilson best time. I'll give you guys. I but my point is not clear cub. I've definitely give that to you. That's not worth argument. So that's what for. That's all right all right. Give me one more day with you. I'd name aaron brown going back towards aaron tom. Drake patrick mahomes and russell wilson. Oh man we're gonna be hard pressed bro. It is gonna be hard brits. So he's he's tired. That would have been your go-to he was there last night. He's retired gone. Go look man. Yeah behavior for status. You're gonna hate my guts are go ahead reseda. Don't i wanna to say don't you don't facialists. You're right five. He's going say policing saints. Listen people want to hear. Now you put it out. What is it now is not as say quarterback award a god. This is not a new york quarterback go ahead. New york state quarterback league name. Your quarterback is because okay. So i will put is arguable. I'm not gonna say interoffice berg. Oh guys argue this as argue that you're gonna say. I thought you were going to say josh allen. I would put josh allen in front of ben rothlisberger this point ben. Roethlisberger is not top. Don't even read. This is say people anybody. There's a couple of quarterbacks they're to me that are arguable to be their top five. But let's say lamar jackson five. He's a rainy. Mvp he is not in the same category as the four in front of him. I'm sorry he's just not. He hadn't proven enough to mean the playoffs to necessarily say to. He's an elite quarterback for me. If you're in an elite quarterback at anything that thing that you have to makes you so special once figured out and takes away from you. Can you still beat them. That's what makes you elite. And he has not proven that to me yet. So i cannot say and the reason i'm saying is because most people said he's in the league quarterback does because he's top five. I don't think lead quarterback and this and there's a whole bunch of you like what are you greet. You're not dak prescott. Matthew stafford josh allen ben. Rothlisberger is arguable between dove quarterbacks and lamar jackson number five for me. That's i think that's where we diverge usually do. And that's fine. But the thing that you said you gloss over it like those four. Quarterbacks lamar jackson all heavily aaron rodgers has an elite quality. I'll give you that right. And certainly tom brady. Does the other two adult learners to lead quality russell. Wilson's running game. It's not only in passing. He's a suddenly coordinates. Passing game is passing game. He's passing game. Why is he not even got an nba. The whales that were the winners. Were that much but my point. But he's he's a passer. Let's stop right now. Is a leap passer. Look what he did last season. Look what he did. Last season with limited spending apart terrible office of line in defense was trash. That's his five so that no problems are russell wilson. So i his fault. I get you but i saw that downfall coming. He was not going to maintain drew the whole asia. So it's not gonna happen. But he was in league quarterback russell wilson. Russell wasn't hasn't been to a conference finals at conference finals gotten paid. So you'll miss me arizona. Alesina why are you using the argument. Russell wilson lamar jackson. My point is lamar jackson. It's been to two divisional cup. Division of playoff series in. Back to back years bro. You just can't take it away an out of autos quarterbacks other than tom brady patrick. Mahomes the only person on that list with an elite trait absolutely is lamar jackson. His running a bit normal. Patrick mahomes to say. Tom brady has a league quality. Yeah aaron rodgers house rest got it and then what is it telling what passing his way. Our elite low. I'll go to you owes to piss compared to tom brady compared to patrick mahomes. We don't think about russell. Wilson passing like those. We don't grow okay so you watch football. I can make some money to those to see me. Equality don't get listen. Everybody can't be elite bro. We can't like quarterbacks. Everybody was about the point. Is this if we're going to make a perfect quarterback this rulemaking a perfect quarterback the arm tower. We're gonna give to patrick. Mahomes the brain town. We're going to get to tom. Brady beedon the legs and the feet who were given to allergy say lamar whereas russell wilson in this body this even say combat. What were we talking about here. But league okay. So may i point russell russell russell wilson to me is the perfect combination of arm talent talent. That's the perfect combination. Matter of fact. Lamar jackson would hope to achieve where to get a. That's what i'm saying. Because what has he achieved is my point. He's got russell wilson. He's gone to one super bowl to exactly terrain exception. He can. he has a super bowl ring. Yes but we talked about this already. Has one two okay era. has it wants to rain. russell. Wilson has one. Besides tom brady the all have one in my point is i've said for years. They're all those two players. Those specific players are overrated. I've said that for years eight. So let's take down it. No that'd be. The ride is overrated. He has in terms of his talent. We break down all these leak. Parts of a quarterback. His feet are the most electrifying feet of a quarterback yet. Not come on man. He's passed by quick. Pass my husband recovery. Michael vick debatably possibly even better than my co. yeah natively if no you have elite feet. His arm talent. He has great arm talent right but in terms of just once again when we think about quarterback about taking away his running ability because that's part of what he is. I'm calling me running quarterback. He's a quarterback but in terms of using his arm to complete the to complement the rest of his game. That part is still lacking right. Whether it's because you don't have the talent or whether that's just the way the office designed whether he's just not good enough at us but we just don't know that it's inconclusive or even underrated to me. One plus one equals. What at this point is either inconclusive or overall the guy's underrated quarterback to me. You can probably say overrated. If you want to talk about if you wanna give more put more onto its feet right. Yeah but it hasn't given us enough for me where we can really debate that issue and really give him a confirmed answer is once again some towns around him and let's see if we can kind of move the game and it. Is that a smart thing to kind of change. Change the game plan from his from his feet that he has with a so electrifying that is elite and make them start throwing the ball right. So that's why that becomes an underrated aspect for me. Yeah so no one's taken away the fact that the guy's an amazing run you haven't been able to stop that but there will come a time. Where only one team once. One team does successfully other teams are going to follow suit now. He's going before this situation where he asked if he can throw the ball. The way michael vick threw the ball when he was playing for the for the for the eagles. Oh oh this is going to be in trouble absolutely. There's no you'll be in trouble if throw the ball like russell wilson. Oh this is going to be in trouble because what's going to last longer the arm or the leg but we know that part. I know i'm see that's that's where you're trying to get me. I said coming into next season. Okay not thirty years. When i'm thirty five years just next season. I think so people were here this is. This is really hate russell wilson. That's not the point but the point is you guys. Everybody likes to go go ahead. I'm sorry but i think let's just put it differently. Let's just kind of this is talk about elite. Less liu says maddin reading right. So you have patrick mahomes. He's going to be the highest rated quarterback news number one. Because tom brady one. You'll be the highest rated quarterback. Tom brady the air raji. Russell wilson russell. Wilson era is not gonna be rated damage differently even though you say Qualities he's not gonna be really that much differently. They're they're and they're not men than right to say. I mean even if you don't think he's an equality is sounds like you're poo pooing on him because there's because he's up there that lamar jackson not that far away from those four. I think what it comes. Down to with russell wilson in particular him and aaron rodgers. They got super bowls when they were younger. Quarterbacks and you have to look into that because it does play a factor into it if he was so great if you will so elite he would at least gotten to another super bowl. You think my last season but what was the moniker last season. Let russ cook and they didn't cook. What is beta lane out. There's a lot that goes into that. I think you're putting too much emphasis on championships right now. Because they're hard is hail to get there. L. quarterback gets a conference championship games. But that doesn't make you got. Football's ultimate team sport correct. We just mentioned why receivers when it comes to lamar jackson if he had a certain amount of wide receivers with them. Maybe we'll able to showcase his passing ability. And we look at a quarterback dan marino. He want to one and they went to another one ever again. But it's one of the greatest exhaust had elite on talent off the chain. Keep in mind though that. Nfc's beast russell wilson. Yeah he had been. There said he'd been back to championship game since rajini better championship get well. Who's been stopping him. When you had the likes of you've got the saints the sales you can. You can argue that you don sales. But they've been all under so much there. There's the so much talent so much in terms of good teams. I think. I think you could argue that time. That's been better town of the best teams in the nfc than there have been in an afc when we talk about the patriots. We'll guess what you can you guarantee seven wins your division. Just because they were that they were trash. Then you have the off week right for the play offs and the only got two games we get to the super bowl i i. I hear what you're saying. Both the saying to to an aspect. I don't want to sound like i'm underrated interesting. Because i love russ which we've tried to okay all right bro- but the my i guess i don't want to be go back and circles here but the the point that i'm making is is perhaps we use the word elite too much now know that my dad was never happened because i see tom. Brady's elite i see patrick mahomes elite meaning. I don't care what team is around those guys. They're going to ball out. It does matter. What teams around aaron rodgers. We know that it does matter. What teams around russell wilson. We know that. And i think with lamar jackson. There's an aspect to his feet with people. Say well that's all it is. Anchor officer vaughn lamar jackson playing with. I don't give a damn whose offense coordinator is when he breaks out of that tackle box. He's gone period. And i think people just underestimate that he's damned near nine ten wins on his own garbage team or not and he doesn't get enough credit for that no getting credit for what he's doing he went to. Mvp weirdest thing. You can be some people. Think that patch mahomes is overrated. Del necessary thing that he's do best quebec in the league. But some people are saying like you said chris he's going to be the greatest athlete of is a different vagrancy. But what makes what you're trying to do is you're trying to figure out okay. What is this person whether person labeled as if you're labeling patrick mahomes the greatest athlete of all time yeah you had the right to say he's overrated if you don't believe he's going to be that true if we're saying that lamar jackson's league and i don't think he's elite and yeah he's he's not a good player. I'm not saying here's a and kudos for things in the league because yes he has won. Mvp but right now. Going into the season. Chris i've seen over reading. This is personal. Chris and his team sees the same thing. The money's going to it's going to say is gonna guy group that right. What how they wanted to go she gave. Money is gonna as a great point and matter of okay. We're going to pay you. Forty five million dollars this year. We're going to wait until next year if the wait until next year where they still want to see something else. I agree with you that absolutely. He's proven what he can do during the foot during the regular season and during that first game of the playoffs for the second game in the playoffs but how far like okay nine ten win. Great is going to take you to an afc championship. As i gonna tell you to to a super bowl right. What takes super super bowl. Well as correct mixture of all of it right so unless you soup up office in line and you soup up you know get double tied in to make it easier throws like what the patriots getting ready to do. Easier throats right and then you soup up their running game and get three or four other running backs back there who can run the ball. You're going all in with the running gay unless you do that. Then at that point you might see lamar. Jackson get to an afc championship game at that point. You might see lamar. Jackson get going and going won the super bowl. Will it be when multiple that way once again running. The ball is only going to last you so long. So it's that perfect complement then at that point. We're going to say the braves us. Okay now we're gonna go ahead and pay you forty five dollars a year next. I think this conversation with be different if one russell wilson won his. Mba emma sorry not mvp his super bowl. It wasn't the defense that won the super bowl. Right it was rushed. They came on one it and he was that guy. We'd be having a different conversation. But it wasn't necessarily so. I think lamar jackson had that squad. He could win it as well as my point because the talent he has talent with his legs with his legs as talent. I think that's the difference. So i came russ credit for winning the super bowl but not as much of the people do but they went to to survive. Right is what it is with that one and that was the defense and i know they had elite defense. Don't get me wrong. Defense was in any quarterbacks where the defense do something to get right. So i'm kind of playing here. Because god only going he's inconclusive. At least i'd very hard to debate. I really do for me. It's not enough yet for me for him. Particularly if you to say. I'm sorry you want to say overrated underrated or. He's exactly what needs to be. If i really want to say i might say. He's exactly what needs to be at this point in time right. But if i'm going to put everything into the equation had this as a tajik overrated over. Yes so okay. So let's talk about this one topic real quick there'd be but that was good. You guys be putting me on my woking russell wilson lee traits wall bro all right so the brooklyn nets there on a chair. They're playing great basketball. Kevin durant is out there doing kevin durant. Does i believe that. James harden is probably in the perfect position. This is the best positions ever had in. His career raises feeding off of kyri urban and and kevin durant and kyrie irvings ball his ass off. He's actually played that role of the third string and he's playing it to perfection. He but he doesn't know that that's why it's working but it's still working still doing that. But that's i don't know carries a weird doodo. He might in his head think for some reason that he's still the best player on a team but this is what they need from the win and he just as it weird mentality where it's gonna work out anyway. What team in the east has the best chance of ruining brooklyn going to divide. So i'll say this for kevin durant and then i'll give him my answer but i'm going to take down on this. I think kevin durant. He is do the greatest. What if that i can think of. I think with his skills and the way he plays he could have been the goat he literally could have been the goat. Kenny smith a veteran lavar. This dude came back from injury missing. Damn your months basketball five five with seventeen points just like it's nothing basketball's nothing to him. If i was creating a body you would say it's kevin durant. He is kevin durant. If you're going to create a body in a game it's kevin durant now for the rest of the teams in the east. That back long got no shot. Nobody has a ten percent chance. I would say i would give a shoutout to Will twenty nine. I can't present to the philadelphia. Seventy sixers and that's because you have a guy joel embiid unguardable. He relies on garble. And if he has a series like a hockey malaysian did versus the david robinson. In the spurs. I mean he just has a series where they cannot hold him then. That would be the only team that is. We have a shot. I don't think the honest the books have a shot by not even a shot. North of that will give the bucks. A shot is what's his name holiday. He's a great defender. He's low key somebody. People don't talk about saliva. They under saying there's going to be a player because he's a guy that can potentially hold a curry irving right. So i give the bucks. That's the team. I get ten percent. But i twenty nine percent to the philadelphia seventy sixers because of joylin be no. I'm i'm what you you took it right out. I can't add to that the peak. Seventy sixers with a healthy joel. Embiid and yeah. Joe will have to be superman in order for that for that to happen. There's too much there's too much firepower you've got katy back. You've got james harden baldwin. You've got kyri that's too much can guard all them. Nobody's stockade anyway. I'll is we'll joel. Embiid is to go out there and gar katie. Know who's gonna guard him. He's on guard -able so you can stop probably might be able to stop james harden which is debatable. You can't you can't do that. You might be able to knock Kyrie office game. But you can't stop kevin durant and you just can't man so look. This is a championship read. It happened man. Lakers a down to make it happen. Ratna baby i mean i agree with you. I was in philadelphia. Seventy sixers then the only team. That has a shot to really be this team. Look at joel embiid joel. Embiid is the first key right if he can go there and dominate not just everyone so he has to dominate. He has to make his presence felt he s a make the new adeniji new jersey nets he has make the brooklyn nets. Noted defense is a weakness for them then. The second player is obvious. Is ben simmons. But it's now the offense have been for me for ben. Simmons isn't a defendant because he's a pretty good defender if he can take his defense even to another level is going to be holding. James harden kevin durant to some degree. You can get at least a little bit of problems then. I think that they're the they don't have a shot right now. Basically i'm seeing. I thought when this whole victory took place that maybe someone able to knock them off in the plows. That's not gonna happen this'll be. You'll be in other devastating collapse if they do not make the finals. I mean it'd be stunning. I i'll tell you so. You have kevin durant who. I just talked about her as he has goat attributes in him if kyrie irving who's maybe the most skilled basketball player to ever pick up a basketball this guy so skilled is ridiculous. And then you have james harden. Who's a walking bucket. I know you can do against this team. The way it works is the seventy sixers have to end up with a number one seed. They've got to have right now and they don't even have a right now. I don't think matters though capacity about tell you why they need to be number one because the reason why they need to be number one is the nets would then play the bucks. I don't mind that he is a great point because filled up. They can't play on the road for crap. Was i have so much. The road though is more that they the the seventy sixers which struggle against the bucks. It'd be a tough series so they can't come off a game six game seven series and then go play the nets. They need to nets to play the bucks and they need bucks would be heroic. I mean go. Janas goes bug and makes it a six game series. Seven game series. I don't happen. And that's i'm just telling us the formula. The next is coming to the cow conference championship. After the seventy six done the mets got still a game. Six still game winner game to push it to a six or seven game series and then they needed thirty three sadie something fantastic. The only other thing. I'll say which. I was going to mention to coaching. If doc rivers can somehow get this monkey off his his back as far as what happened with the clippers and being the only coach to to squander a hummy three one three three. 'cause he's a good coach even though we talk about those things he's still a good coke gotta be coast to get there right if he can out. Coach steve nash. Who is a first year coach. That might be key in that series. It might but you know. They're so talented. Is like bro. I could be out there on the bitch. That's exactly should shot. Katie shoot shop has about his chimera was heart three points. Yeah thirty five thirty five. All gotta do because that's the nba. If it's an nfl be different. Coaching is just when the team has that much better and not so much. You can do coach. It's it's not. I mean you might as well play three to zone. Guess he's bryce i. I don't know where you can do. Maybe three zone. And i i don't i don't know i do wanna see one the l. a. teams in the finals matchup with the brooklyn nets. It can be. The clippers are can be the lead as well. I know in the question but do you think will matter. We know i'm anybody i think. Denver also i think if if they can prove their good enough see if they can prove their good to get to the final thing. Yeah because that means good. That means that 'cause aaron irritable ordinance. That's fine just ira both of your same but would you like to see that. I didn't address no. I don't want to see house. Do want to see the denver. The name just to name you'd be like the average fan like the denver nuggets but me knowing they have aaron gordon and all those players and they were almost. That'll be a good see. That's that's what. I think it's going to be a casino to get there. You're saying what you're saying. The able to beat the lakers or the clippers to get there. I know what you're saying. I think the net solving the finals they would. They don't know they'll be they'll be able to get this done in three cancun. Underestimate him if you if you really think i'll take it you know right right right. That's my point. There's no respect there. Exactly they better respected and they don't need to respect. I'm telling you the denver denver team they got some things clicking for aaron gordon who's on workout is working as working. Well yeah but the home with my don't we. We're we're only talking that they get to the final true. I hear that. I hear that right. So that means that something's going on either. Beat the lakers. Or the clipper or both and they did that. I still would. And they underestimate okay. Wound-care all i'm saying is it will go our guarantee you go at least six. If denver got there i could see the nba tomlinson make it competitive. Areas is a Allow you today. You russell was the warriors. I love russ bad so really the only teaneck is stop to brooklyn is yeah yeah. That's that's pretty much. The gist of it. Great stuff.

Welcome to episode three hundred. Thirty eight of the center ring eastbound. Podcast coming to you. Live and or prerecorded from an undisclosed location the date june twenty-fourth twenty twenty one. The time nine oh four. Pm central time. Go ahead and follow us on twitter. Join our discord. And do whatever you must do to make sure this show lives on into perpetuity. My name is tim. I'll be your captor for this journey into sports alongside me as always is my best friend. My brown friend. It's a huge. What's up thinking of game of thrones right now. Did got to ask you. This makes me think of a question. I got for you here okay. So i'm going to hit us. Hit us off with a bang here. What is the right amount of time to pass before you go back and rewatch a series well nude you cannot ri. Watch it if you've never seen it before okay. Aside from game of thrones any series. Okay like a good series. That you've seen take game of thrones assigned first of all it's weird that seen i it's like i up our alley admit i've seen three and a half seasons maybe four and a half seasons of game of throat and i just cold turkey. I missed one episode. And i never went back and i loved it loved it and now obviously knowing everything that happens i have really no desire to go and finish it. Not the last season obviously wasn't the best but as a whole series it was great and i also understand if you know me that is breaking bad. Oh breaking bad is might be the greatest of all time. Okay so back to the original question. Then what is the right amount of time to pass before you can go back and watch series. Think long form series right one season breaking bad madman right. Yeah those type of shows though madman. I never finished either. Kinda got bored You know. I would honestly say like if you're really into it. You might be fine once a year once a year once a year. I mean you know. Unless there's like other shows out there and stuff. But i would not judge i mean look you know yours and mine. Wife watt rewatch is friends once a month so nightly it's a nightline that's what she has on she has that or gilmore girls on when she goes to sleep and it is i have to turn it off like after she falls asleep. Yeah no it's so if you ask them you can watch it immediately after finishing but i would say once a year. I want judge if you watched a a good season or good series that you you really loved one it. No judgment right. It's all personal preference. I think for it's funny because we've talked about watching breaking bad again and we didn't watch it live when it happened so we watched it. Maybe a few years after the show ended or not ended. I started watching the show like a couple seasons into kind of started from the beginning. I watched this season finale live. I still haven't been able to go back and watch it i i. I've gone back and watched a season. I'm like i still remember everything. So vividly as i'm watching it and i guess that's it right like a comedies different but breaking bad man even though it is to me like a top five like i said might be seen might be number one. I don't know. I would really have to think about it. But you're right. I've only went and i've only seen it once but it's it's hard because it's hard to go back and replicate like the like those feelings of watching it first time through like all the twists and turns in gut wrenching moments. And you're like you're right like if you know that stuff is coming. It's our comedy is is different comedy. You can know a joke is coming still think it's funny hearing it again. Yeah we'll give you the same type of laugh. You won't get the same type of emotion and breaking bad. I don't think we will just too hard right to bring your top three shows to our next show. Maybe you don't even have to rank them. Give me your three. 'cause that's that might be too hard to ask right like some homework required. You gotta start thinking back. A little bit would have to go back and watch it. You know again top three top three top five whatever you wanna bring a handful of shows to the next episode. It doesn't matter comedy. Whatever it's about whatever the me for all like here bring your top three. It could be a one season that you know what it could be. It could be a once season thing too. I mean i don't know much out there that would be one season. Can you think sort granted a has three seasons now but there's only one season that matters the people talk about all right. All right you'll get it's got never seen death note. Look it will shock. You really have not ventured in to a lot of shows. I like what i like. And i don't really get adventurous with my tv if your top three or shelves from the eighties and we'll be a little discipline. I mean i was childhood. Shows wasn't even born in eighty. Sir kay okay okay. I'll think about it. Think about tell you already be somewhere on. We're probably both have that your sitting out there. That was that was incredible and then the rest will probably be more or less comedies. But okay all right. Who had a large viewing audience them recalled this past major on. Listen the trick. Sneak peek action. They're breaking bad on. Netflix still probably gets more viewers than caught your many years after the fact but that is a sneak peek for some clutch or kick cod action which we will do later in the show Let's kick off though with some counterstrike talk because we got some counterstrike catch up to do. I know you weren't with us last episode as kevin filled in anki kevin. Oh that also reminds me before we get too far into it A new will also not be with us on sunday celebrating the six year anniversary. We're doing a station in dallas for the weekend. So can't do that. So i think i'm going to opt for community night sunday night at not allowed while i'm going to bed not allowed. That is not fair. Plus we all know what a staycationing means. When you have kids you just want to do the free stuff in a hotel room. Okay understandable as we are going to be too as we learned on the lgbtq chart to any key. We don't keep shame not at all. We don't kick shame just a joke that i said but turns out. It's true. thanks. That's actually a thing you don't think king shape At least not in june not in pride month so yeah probably probably just going to do a community night then so on sunday so i'll put it up and discord whatever we wanna play. Who knows it normally ends up being on valerie. But we'll we'll figure it out. Sea of thieves is an option out. There see thieves xbox game pass. I think you can get right now for a dollar so worms rumble. I know Joey and discord was saying he wanted to play that. We'll figure it out. We'll figure it out. I'll just it'll just kind of be me being on playing some games for an hour so so yeah hit us up and discord. Let us know what you want to play. So i can download it. Esteem sales also going on right now which talk about something. That's changed as you get older. The steam sale used to be like breaking my bank account worthy of stuff. And now i'm like nothing. Why anything on this team sale in years. Yeah even a joke nothing. It's probably been like the fall sale that they do summer. Sale probably haven't bought anything outside of aaa title right like i wouldn't call of duty or battlefield but like i haven't bought anything on a steam sale in his honestly. I don't even remember the last game because even now i look like half the stuff i can get on a game pass whether that be xbox or ea or something else. So mike y. Which tim share this information with me. Today i did not know this and this is a a more. You know type moment here if you have the xbox game pass which we've highly recommended and we did that even in our show is several reasons for that right you also get the basic. Ea pass with. It didn't know that. I did not know that until you just mentioned it like ten minutes before we started the show. So that gives you like all the old battlefields. I'm sure there's everything. Outside of like brand new games passed so it's not like they're pro pass where you get new titles on release but still it adds to your collection quite a bit so for somebody like yourself on a new. Pc wants to mess around. Try out some different games. Like that gives you a whole nother. That's what i'm all about being games. That's what i'm all about so community night. Sunday night market down Tell your loved ones. You're busy so we got. We got games to play all right. So let's get into some catch up with counterstrike. We talked a little bit with kevin. But i know you were not here so we have cologne coming up. We just had blast springs. Wrap up the big talk around it and the interwebs is because cologne is an off line of it so really for the first time. In a long time we're going to see teams interact in a highly competitive. I mean this is. This is in my is the first major of the deadly. Feels like because you also have that play in round that's happening that's going to be sixteen teams and just some of the teams in the plane stage nip mouse big taliban. Og spares that bad news bears. Evil genius Just so many. But there's still a ton of talented teams working their way through the plan. Just to get to the big boy stage where you have basically the top aide just sitting sitting there waiting for you right in so yeah to finally go back to a land. I don't think they're going to have fans right. I don't think i've tried finding that. And i cannot provide. If i'm honest i will be shocked if it's a spill just to get these guys back on. Land is is super exciting. We've seen this happen already. It's not like counterstrikes. Are the front runners in doing this. This is already happening with several other east sports. Titles so it's nice to see. Counterstrike finally joined the group but it's a good tournament to wait for. I would have hated this to happen. Dream hack open july. That really would've been disappointing for that to be our first big land event so for i am cologne. It's gonna feel like a major This elevates the status of already elite tournament right for you to be able to say this is our first time back on land. We saw what that did with fowler valerie for the v. c. t. masters which again isn't a major for those that don't know it's a it's a qualifier to get into a major essentially alone. Yeah just it's like watching it. You can feed off the players energies when it's on so and this is a million dollars even just watching online. You feel a different energy knowing that they're sitting right across from each other and All the trash talking not that they may do face to face but that they've done online you know talking about how teams runs or not as validated. Because they're doing it during the on line era like a a lot of extra stuff matters in this tournament because it's on land. I said my piece about that last episode and basically told everyone that you're dumb if you're if you're still saying that gambit for example is not a top tier team because it's all been online right. It's this whole argument and it's not just in counterstrike literally every sports under the sun if it's been online you're getting get people saying well it's online. It's completely different. I think call of duty was probably the worst about that right. Like trash talking. Oh the online play and they had issues early on. I don't think they have those same issues Back on land now also but they really gave fuel or not fuel empire an incredibly hard time for being online champion like discounted it almost completely to the fans off the record. Books sensually like that's how it feels right like that. That's how it feels like the fan base. Yeah call duty fields. I don't agree with that sentiment. I think you can go along with it. Like if maybe at the start of covert and the online play happened and like like you said especially in college duty or even here. It's like teams aren't really like playing optimum connection sometimes and you know just you were really built for infrastructure wasn't built for that type of online play at that high of a level so maybe i mean that's really what happened. I'm gonna i'm gonna bank on. That's what happened with cloud nine cis it was just because the online play. They were built for the team for land. And then you go online like unfortunately one game. If only cloud nine cis were still around today this would be event. Oh colonial be guaranteed and we'll never know we'll never know it had they survived like eight more months we would have been in. Does this go in reverse as well tim. So if people were saying teams runs that are going on right. Now are not validated. Because it's during the on. Line era are teams that shit the bed all of the sudden since we've been playing online are we expecting. Are they expecting them to all of a sudden. It'd be hostage when we get back face to face so this to me reminds me of versus pro of old right. The polish squad pervert is pro where they dominated events but when it came to online qualifiers. They couldn't qualify for a high school tournament if they wanted to because they were just so bad on mine. And i don't think it had anything to do with online. I think it had everything to do with attitude about playing online. And so you can. Maybe say that's why some of these top tier teams have dropped off right. Maybe but i don't necessarily again. Maybe for the first three. I'll even tell you. Six months of this i would. I would take that argument but right now eventually. These teams probably should've woken up and looked in the mirror and been like. Oh this is probably going to be it for a while and we should probably play serious. So no i don't buy that i think if you're one of these teams that people are saying that. Hey you're only good because this is online and you suck wall if you're one of these teams than that are only bad. Because i if you're a team that's only offline you equally suck just as much because we've now learned that you have to be good. I mean you've always had to like this isn't breaking news. You've always should have been good on both. Like i don't think these teams are so close in skill in the sense of like say We'll just gonna use says example. I know they haven't been on point as much but like astrologists right at the start of all this were number. One in the world and gambit wasn't even in the conversation. I don't think there's such a difference between online and offline play to where you would literally swap them out right now. Yeah no. I mean i i completely disagree with the senate gave first of all. It's been winning tournaments since what looking back since february Than they won the pinnacle cup they got second in pro league. I in the blast premier showdown. I in epic league i in. Im summer i in the blast premier spring final like. That's what more of a run do you need to show that. You're you're not playing low tier teams in ninety five percent of these events that i just listed off here so i know what more proof you need to say. A team is good. It's a you're being in my mind. Disrespectful to the team teams. That are winning right. Verdict pro is the complete opposite of the old versus pro. Because this team is built their name during the on line era. I do think those teams still have something to prove when we go online. But i don't discredit what they've done during the off. Line era right during the on line era. I am not going to sit there. And discredit everything. That gambit has done because they haven't played or one of these events on land there'd beating the best teams in the world. They are the best team in the world. You know and so. I mean they definitely have something to prove that. There's no doubt about that. I'm not saying they get a free pass because of it but you know still the team to beat the bright invented by. I'm not completely ignoring all this. Like i'd be lying if i said. I look that. I know what he's doing right now. But thorn Because he's blocked both of us on twitter to spite us. Never talk to him. Ever so ever fan of the show listener thorn. He used to post his rankings. I don't know if he still does this but he never included online play never included online events and he said that it's land only for his power rankings in cs which is okay during that time of life that we were in when there was happy right ended up bothered me because some of these online qualifiers i felt. Were just as important of getting into events. Because i guess in here for these people saying like oh it's online it doesn't matter so playing against the top fifteen twenty teams in the world okay. Online though online means less than some podunk dream hack event with sprout in it. You know what i'm saying. Like i don't understand how beating navy or g to astrology. All these teams that are you know. Vitality top top teams in the world but beating online doesn't matter but hey if you be a top twenty five team in dream hack well. That was on land so watch out everyone. Yeah i mean there. There's gotta be like a more in depth conversation about this particular topic because then you start going into like tournament weights right. What kind of wait are you putting an event because of the teams that are in this event versus like you mentioned like a dream hack open where maybe you have lower tier one teams tier two tier three and and so forth right so that gets a little bit deeper at the end of the day. Gambits number one team in the world. They're going to be the number one team in the world's going into cologne transfer of the number one team cologne coming number one team in the world coming out of cologne In they're still going to be the team to beat the you know that's just it at the end of the day. They're playing so good. You know this team is. I mean gosh does feel like they came out of nowhere but now you just like go back and look at their history in. It's just incredible to see what they've done over. Essentially a five month period. And i think the competition going into cologne itself is. I don't know what more you would want to see us go fan like you're getting a land event with the best teams. I'm telling you it's going to have major feel written all over it like there's just no doubt in my mind that yes. We have to wait till october. End of october for the real major but this is going to have those vibes especially if we get like the right mixture of teams from the plan to make it through in in really give us like our top fifteen sixteen teams in the world like i think having nip advanced mouse the way they've been playing vitality g these teams to get through his is going to be really important to kind of help overall pool. But i'm excited. You know this is the first time. I've probably been excited in a little while for a counterstrike event. All you know. It's been good. And i've been watching. I've enjoyed watching it but i haven't really been like okay. I need to like make. Sure i don't miss this first round matchup like i could tune in and they could be halfway through and i might watch seven or eight rounds and then tune out to something else like. I'm okay doing that right now. The this is going to be one that that's going to grab my attention with sit there and watch pretty depth. Yeah so it starts. July six so We still have a about a week and a half before we really have to worry about that heads up though to lie six awkward tuesday start. Don't like that. Don't don't love the tuesday start and it goes to stop slow. Bother me more. When i'm no longer remote because right now i can just throw it up on the screen next to me and very inhabitant. Not even deal. You know but the awkward tuesday starts with mark your calendars because it's a goofy start date As far as the Start is what it's going to be for a and we're going to be a a morning event for us up. I'm looking forward to it. Two million dollar price pool. We've already said. I really do think this is going to be a major ask. Even though it is huge for some of these teams especially because a lot of these teams have made roster moves already. So they've lost some of those arm our points going into it right so there is some ground for teams to make up especially like. I don't know what expectations are for guys. Like m. i. b. are but like they're ones that desperately desperately-needed faze clan right. They desperately need to to make up some ground with the point region. So even if you just get out of the playing stage and into groups I mean you know you at least want some some. Help there so yeah. It's nice at the play in the tournament or like right back to back so it'll just feel like one long healthy event. It's not gonna be play in a week ahead of time and then you go. It's like six seven in the eight hundred eighteenth will be like the actual main event though. I may not that. I'm looking at this. I don't even know if this arm our event is it cologne. Hasta honestly can tell you the whole armour. Maybe it's not. Maybe i'm getting my circuit points pro tour blast premier. But i don't see oh my god. I'm i stand corrected. I stand corrected. I don't think this is like an arm. Our major event that blows my mind that this is not yet those podunk and eight tournaments that we saw a month ago her like three. No i'll tell you the thing behind that that i would say to kind of play. Devil's advocate here. It's cologne has enough prestige on. Its own that it doesn't need to be an arm. Our event to draw attention right into have value. that tournament already has enough value. Wanted tone getting the championship at cologne. To most people feels like a major to most players is one of the most prestigious place to go play. It's like playing. At wimbledon right and so an armour event going to a lesser tier event will then boost the value of that event. That may be had no value before so it doesn't have to have a million dollar prize pool for it to mean something it's going to be a big event because it's an event. Cologne has a million dollar prize pool. But it's because cologne earned that honor of getting to a million dollar prize pool and it shows that it does have a lot of meaning. People want to win that tournament not to say they don't want to win every tournament but let's be real some mean a lot more than others. Winning a major means a lot more than winning know premier finals. Whatever you know. So i that could be the reasoning behind that as cloned as a great event regardless of armar not our major not major like it's cologne fair enough fair enough all right so there. It is some s talk for you. Let's get into some clutch or kick call of duty addition because we've actually had some hot topics around the call of duty world even just in the last forty eight hours. This is all like new stuff isn't even like oh me and kevin are talked about and we're gonna talk about it now with the new. No no this is like fresh topics out of like the last four. Listen if you're a fan of e sports drama and you're not following the call of duty seen. I don't know what you're doing with your life. What drama you're following like. It is like good juicy drama besides call of duty. It is all day around the clock drama. Four you really get it from like players ownership like you get it in so many different spots with call of duty the amount of roster changes that take place in call of duty you would think there's a penalty for not swapping out somebody on your roster with a forty five day window you know like it's kind of insane league rule you have to make a roster change after every event at least one or bench. Somebody like do a replacement right like something. So we have a handful of clutter kicks to get to a new to the major for this last Stage three dallas home stand. The viewer numbers are stage. Four excuse me we're going into stage five and then there's like the that ripe right five and champs are we already that foreign so stage four major was just wrapped up the dallas homestand. The viewer count is out so this is the way it goes major. One had one hundred and twenty thousand viewers to one hundred one three one hundred thirty five big boost. Their and four had a whopping eighty. Six thousand and i believe this is average numbers correct. Yes probably or maybe it's peak. I don't know. I think i saw it doesn't matter doesn't matter peak average it could peak at a million but if your average is eighty six thousand i don't really care what your peak is so we'll go with doesn't matter for these numbers clutch kick though news. Should the league be concerned with these numbers. I'm going to kick it. I don't think so. I think you would be concerned if these are. Your numbers may be heading into cod champs. they can look at this in the only thing that surprises me as this was the event that was on land. That would be the one surprising thing. Hey we paid all this money to get all these people together and do this on a in a in person facility and are somehow numbers drop like the same exact reason. We're saying to get more hyped up for cologne in cologne for counterstrike. Well people should have been just as hype for this going back online in. It didn't what i think happens with call of duty in. It's cyclical is. The game just gets a little old throughout the year in. This is not one of the best. Titles we've ever played right. It's it's considered an average call of duty at best like the game engine is fairly average. I mean the game is just average that that's what it is right so people were not in love with this particular game. You had three a week before hype starts building around other games and you know people have already kind of veered off of your game. In fact i think those people that are probably playing your game or playing war zones. They don't even give a shit about. Cdl they care more about the world series of wars that will have crazy numbers the world series of warzone compared to see the l. They don't even want to record that they don't wanna pull all the numbers from people that are streaming in or playing it because it would it would religious hurt the overall. Look but it's it's towards the end of the year. We have a new call of duty just a couple months away I think champs. If this was a lower number for champs i would be wildly concerned but i think that also hit some pretty crazy numbers so i would like to have this conversation again after champs and see what kind of the average viewership is there but for this not too concerned i just think it is what it is for colorady like the game is towards the end of its life cycle in. It's not one of the best so feels kind of normal at this could happen. It's also a holiday weekend. It was my birthday. So maybe a lotta people are out celebrating that also father's day. I don't know if that really would take a hit with the viewership count. Maybe maybe maybe people are getting tired of atlanta and i said was arctic. Also out relatively early. We've learned when optic is out. The fans are out and that doesn't matter if it's online orland. If it was arctic in the finals what would that average viewership number look like. I think you're you're breaking season records at that point. Probably one fifty plus right. Yeah because we've seen it in person. And when optic loses at an event the event turns into a ghost town events over. It's it's it's done I would say. I i would like to say they should be nervous. But i'm going to say kick as well like are these are these stellar numbers. Some are but you know the fact that your last one was the lowest one i guess. Whatever but i don't know what their expectations are right like. Are you going into this expecting. Hey we're gonna have it and s numbers. I don't think that's their expectations. And if it should be the only sport right. I mean how we even had krim six on our show and he even called call of duty or to eastport like even the players kind of are aware. Like yeah like it's a very passionate group of of fans and players right the numbers right if you're if your power ranking it based off of passion it's an s. Tear each sport right but based off of viewer popularity. It's a tier to sport like that. That's it all a duty as a tier one game. The eastport is tier to eastport like right distinguish the two right like call of duty warzone tier one. Cdl tier two for eastwards. Just the way yes and so. I think these are kind of what you're seeing are tier two numbers so i and it's also difficult to compare because it's on youtube and you just don't know what numbers these would be like on twitch like i know i mean you know it would be higher. That's one thing you do is the number would be higher if it was on twitch but if you told me old counterstrike is moving to youtube. I'm gonna go to youtube. Watch it right. I just think. The window streamers the window shoppers or sure. That's that's the ten twenty thirty k. You're going to be missing more. Yeah so i agree. I think kick for both of us. It's are are they great numbers. No but the question was should the league be concerned. Not really all right. This has came up. Wrote a tweet from krim six. He tweeted it. Can't tell if he's trolling or not. Later on. but it it did enough damage in the community to bring it up and a lot of pros voice their opinions on this new judge and i think i'm in the minority on this one but it should all twelve teams play in champs now right now. It's the top eight so the bottom four from the season don't qualify for champs last year it was every team made it but obviously different scenario because it snuck up on us this year. They were able to set rules in place. So should all twelve teams be allowed into champs clutch or kick. I will go first on this one. I'm putting this to the moon. All twelve teams should qualify for champs. I understand why a fan from a lo look. I'm alliance fan. I would love nothing more if they were qualified into the playoffs by default every year. Sure but at the same time. I also know it would be straight garbage if they were. You have an entire season to prove that you should at least be a top eight team to get into the champs. You have the entire. The season has to mean something. If you're telling me we just talked about viewership numbers of newt. If all twelve teams qualified those viewership numbers would at least be minus one person. Because i wouldn't. I would care so little about the main season if i knew every team had a chance in the end anyways so i am punting. I don't think all twelve teams should be allowed. You don't have that in normal sports. You don't have that in any other east sports. No and i can't believe that the call of duty community was like if you go on reddit or twitter. You'd almost think it's unanimous that they think that should be allowed because i thought these guys were like hardcore gamers and only the best survive and here. They are saying like no. La gladiators deserves a chance and champs so kick it and you're not alone my friend thank you. I also kick this. Because i need the season demean something. I don't need the season to just be four little mini championships. And then i'm waiting for the end game right. If everybody gets to qualify. I thought it was cool for your one to do that. I really do. I didn't hate it and i don. I wouldn't hate it if they came out and told me today that everybody gets to play in it like i. I wouldn't sit here and light a fire under him and throw it in the. I wouldn't do that either. So i gotta be honest on both sides. But if you're asking me for my preference i would like the regular season to mean something and this is a big way to do that. I think the bigger flaw here is the number of teams. I don't think twelve teams is enough for college duty. I do think it needs to be sixteen or twenty teams. And i think that would then help this issue and they can bump that number up to whatever they wanted and it would feel a little bit more healthy because right now there's just so much talent on every single team. There was a favorite player on every single team for somebody like there's just not enough teams. I don't think. I think they need to expand the league. Now that's different different issue right like they figured out if there's enough investors out there to add for more teams are willing to pay for home sites and things of that sort. What cities do they even want. So that's a whole nother issue. But i do want the season to mean something the okay with a couple of teams not making it we saw last year. We did have a little bit of a run by who was. I think it was thieves last year. That made a little bit run. I don't know if they wouldn't have qualified in terms of being a top eight teams throughout the year. Maybe they would have. Maybe they wouldn't have to go back and look But for the most part like optic last year same thing you know kinda like what three or four four last year or something right going into champs so it's not like they would la optic. Oh yeah yeah that's real you also had You know most of the teams that were kind of down there right like seattle. They still sucked when we went into champs like it didn't matter so i think if you haven't proven yourself to be a top two thirds of league. You don't deserve that chance. Unfortunately like you just didn't want answers. You've had plenty of chances. Lead up to champs no one hundred percent and i'm agreeing with you. I liked the idea of the season. Meaning something i think. This is the only way to give it meaning. I just don't think the stage championships like really mean enough like they're just feels over watching the way it's done right. Yeah a little bit and you know. I think too like for the stage majors. They already allow majority of the teams in there right. There's an eight teams in the major anyway as is or know all twelve all twelve teams. Excuse me all twelve teams. make the stage majors anyway. So it's not like you have throughout all year. Each team does have a chance at the stage major to make that historic run realistically. If you get top four you know how you know. How if you win one. You're probably in top eight there anyways right. You have plenty of chances. I think the league is very forgiving for the bother too long. It's not like it's a short season that we're like. The season expands a full year. So that's a lot of time to go by then be like. Hey everybody gets a chance to win. The last tournament to feels weird. Yeah nope i. I don't kick kick for both of us again in agreeance today Last one here clutch or kick call of duty addition. The la thieves will be making yet another roster change a new draft. Everyone was so excited about. Yes this was the roster we wanted never even got to see it because hook which you never even got to talk about that but That was fun. Tj hawley has been replaced by john on the roster but rumors are droese will enter the starting roster and hoop might be benched yet again so did officially happened now. I just saw that on twitter. Okay today so who is benched again. Jesus in the starting roster john in the starting jesus lord help me okay. A blew my mind now so clutch or keck was this all was was shot. Puffing smoke up our asses about who can like is this. A result of uc missing the match prior or is there was there more going on like what is going on here. I'm just going to say a very vague clutch kick where the fans right and nature was just blowing. Smoke up our ass. I think this is. I clutched the move. Okay so i think that's important to note. I'm okay with john. Coming into the starting roster jaundice been one of the best. Smg players in call of duty for years as a championship under his name and as always just been really good he did not play last season due to. He said like health reasons and took a little bit of time off. But he's been killing it in challengers. So i'm very much okay with john getting starting roster spot the hoop situation is because of. I don't know what y'all talked about last week. Exactly but it's because of his dumb mistake him making that mistake in costing the team a chance to do better in kind of experiment with the new squad and who could just released his video. And and then for you to make that boneheaded mistake in have to have your team make a roster swap right before the event and then they get eliminated naturally like what's going to happen in that situation. They weren't that great to begin with. And then you make a last-minute roster changed good luck so even just one mistake though. He made many mistakes again. There's so many just so dumb just so dumb. I can't even begin to explain how dumb that is like that. That happened and i even vet. Who is an honest mistake. I do like it happened but you had several chances to rectify that mistake and not let that happen. So i clutch the move on. Okay withdraws being inserted into the inserted into the starting lineup. John s player anyway. So it wouldn't have worked out unless you are. You know you'd have to. It just wouldn't have worked out. You couldn't add john and kept kuchen. The starting lineup blink. You weren't gonna run three. Jeez they brought slasher on slasher back on. I should say this team as a core won a major together you know. They played together and play. Well together. so I'm okay with this. Like i think john has proved himself. Who made a major bonehead mistake. Tj departing kinda sucks. but like. John is a better. You know from what we've seen in the past. John is a better player. So i'm excited to see what this roster has. I don't know where my expectations lie at this point anymore with with la thieves. But i'm excited to see this roster together would have liked to have a way to see who performed with them. But that's what i think is the shame of. It is like latte before the major just last week. Everyone was saying now. This is the roster. We were hoping to see with la thieves. That's what everyone was saying. We got to see that roster. I think this is a direct reflection on on hoops. Mistakes I've never seen in my life. Someone go from having the community against them to overwhelmingly support you to now back in laughing at you again. Like the drama that he did. And you know what i'm not saying like. Oh the the stuff. He called listen. His video still holds warrant right. just he's taken a hit that sure. Yeah definitely like you. You had everyone in your corner and now you have some people saying like look i. I wish you the best. But i'm not gonna. I'm not gonna take for you right now right. I'm not upset. L. a. d. for being mad at him no because like we said he i made a typo on his Covid test paperwork right. And then his saving grace would have been welcome. We see your id sir. I don't have my id. I left it at the hotel will. Can you turn around and get it. I can't because i'm already in our late to the event like everything he could have done to screw this up. he did. Yeah so really. I mean really everything could have done every bad decision you have made in that situation you did so. I don't feel bad for him. Losing his roster spot like it's a job. Yeah you know. And i thought he deserved a shot on that roster. Well guess what they gave it to him and he blew it. So i'm not gonna sit here and pity him and the situation. It's still such what he's been through and what he had to deal with with the whole empire situation and the rumors that were going on around about him but he was also given another opportunity to get back on this roster and perform and you had the community behind you. You made several bad mistakes and now you lost your spot. So good luck. I'm sure we'll see him next year in the league deserves a chance to be in the league. But just not right. Now like whatever's going on there just needs a minute to kind of settle and we'll see what the future lies form at this point. Yeah we'll see what happens with l. atheists because they spent a lot of money rumored to get hookah over there too right so i don't know how quickly they're willing to Abandoned that project either right with one stage to go champs even qualify for champs. Who knows at this team performs. Well they're not even gonna look back on though. Yeah because that's just not how sports work right traditional sports. You might get away with it East sports no as soon as you see someone. It's almost like guaranteed contracts so it ended the day. They cut him loose or not being as our any right. Yeah they just take the hit with what they've spent right so We'll see we'll see what happens there but a good clutch or kick call of duty edition. Let's get in to some news before we get to that though e. news is brought to you by philly e sports go to phillies sports dot net right now so you can get information on their summer series that they just announced this is july tenth through august twenty second a new age they will have tournaments compromised of rocket league. Call of duty black ops cold war correct me. If i'm wrong news this is not warzone. This is actual call of duty proper cold war. Mpa sport and valerie events prize money over thirty thousand dollars will be given away across three events all completely completely free to play sponsored by the us. Army Philly sports dot net their summer series. You grab your buddies sign up. This is a big event. this is not Some local events made online. This is this is big money so go ahead and sign up. I think we might actually be signing up for the valid tournaments. So if you wanna play on our team a don't like you need to be a hard carry like you're relying on us to take this team for you. This is for fun. If you're with us you're not looking for prize money you need to carry. We are not practicing now and and we will not practice leading up to the event we will get a game or two in here and there And that will have to be good enough. Maybe that's all we need. you know. Maybe our natural skills will carry us the rest of the way. Call you big game. Tim for nothing. No joke i do. I do come in the clutch though when the that's why i'm not gonna practice. There's no point we'll do all this practice and you'll have been sucking the whole time in practice. And then all of a sudden we get into the game and you start eighteen in one worry about it. I got you there. I'm tournament modes activated. No one can stop me. No none none whatsoever. You should play a champion. You never played before like if teams would just let me not try out and just jump right into like cologne. I could be playing. I could be playing on a straw right now. Under present i could do it. Not an issue launders. If you wanna come in and play with us you can easily do it and sealy vignette. We can get van silly involved. We can make our own little Castro powerhouse tournament for philly e sports summer series event. So i just. I don't think they're valid. Tournament is until august. I think it's the last one so we have plenty of time to find. Some hard carries a niche. Plenty of time all right. Let's get into some e. news shall we Some unions to wrap up the show. We talked already earlier. Overwatch take off and saved us. I think yeah. That's going to be my yikes right. There hit scans got a little bit of a nerf in the experimental. Build a new church. There drop-off damage dropped from fifty percent to thirty for our flip it thirty percent to fifty percent now. It goes from fifty percent damage increase to thirty five percent damage. Increase on the pto right now. And how does he use. Drop off how they did the math. It was a drop off buff. Meaning it got weaker but above makes it seem like i got stronger. It did not like good luck. You widow players out there and six. I don't understand you know what we don't have to waste time on overwatch. Let's not waste time. Let's not get frustrated over bad decision. It's going to opposite. You're going backwards. You're going back getting ready for overwatch to. They don't want hit scan to be sort of like they're really what it is. I really believe that's what it is. I'm not even joking when i say that. I believe they're trying to get this ready for overwatch. To the can't have hits can be like to top tier because there's only one tank now and they're just setting it up. That's what they're doing here maybe Legendary overwatch player striker parts. Ways with san francisco shock as part of their back to back championship they. Mvp they are saying retired. They're saying your your retirement so people are saying that doesn't mean he's going to valerie. I'm telling you right now if you believe. The word retirement means anything in east sports.

This guy. To this day. Talking about. Let's go. Let's go man. So. That was the Onta- wilder and his famous I still can't believe you've never heard that Chris. I know it now I. I've seen I never thought of it that way. Wow. Maybe. No little little becks me up on this I. thought it was like me minority. Must be like. No. If You On on social networks twitter and instagram stuff, you don't see all kinds of means on on to this day. I think that's his most popular but I mean I know he does have a couple but that's the one. I thought of him. That's a one de immediately. Yeah. Popped into my head. So. Until this day. To. This Day. Okay. So that was papers these. Famous quotes. Let's transition to basketball here a little bit is going to be kind of A. Kind of an odd topic. But as top I wanNA talk about because it's kind of interesting to me and away the NBA is evolving. Shall we say? So you've noticed that allow these players recently throughout the years I mean taking really really deep shots almost two logo Lebron as even. Put into his repertoire. James. Harden Forever Steph Curry is the one that made that you know. So. Do you guys think that the NBA is somehow incorporate a four point shot? Chris Grizzly like really really I mean, I'm not a pure of any sort, but this is ridiculous. Get three points shoot shy I. don't care shoot at a hat order below you get three points, Megan it a four point shot throws off the Mat of NBA it re it really truly does there's no reason to do it. The fans aren't asking for it. I don't know who wants it if you want to shoot a deep shot good for you but you're going to get three points. There's there's no reason to have a four point play. I think Adam Silver did incorporate the four point into like a celebrity game to see how about. Guys, we have the was leaked. Three to four point. Shabby. Seen them shoot it. Should not be only shot. No. Of course, I was going to space out the floor more if you do incorporate a four point shot, but it's not everybody you have someone who will go out there thinking okay I can do this. Yeah, and quickly kit. They're not steph curry and James Harden because of the way more teens are actually shoot at three point shot and. He started tonight they were holding Damian from the half court line blue though at exactly. But I think he should be able to reward I'm not necessarily saying you ship a four point shot, but she to reward those players shooter for deeper. I just don't see why why am I rewarded this? Just because you're taking a chance and you've you've developed a skill that not a lot of people have doesn't mean you should be okay. How `bout? Okay. Let's transition a football. How about you fit your field goal kickers? Well, not you feel well, your kickers right there. Kicking Sixty seven seventy yard field goal get three, you get three points still three point three three points man. So what are they like man boy shooting because you call it threes trays. Call Four. Quarters. Quasi a nice raw. Come on man I just thought that it was interesting. No I. Think it's interesting to bring up but do you really want to see guys coming up and pulling up four point shots an air balling and I I I really don't like is time of possession games. All of a sudden at twelve point lead is three possession game. This is not To me, that is not to me. It's a problem that he's. Better how big lead you always have opportunity to come back you have steph curry as hard on your dean. Changes the whole Davick of the game I think because now you've changed the mindset of the players now, pretty decent three point. Shooters going forward. Now everyone's going to be shooting from half court exit games tight exactly right versus developing a proper place in the strategy is to go through the efficient points Jeff. Over fish appoint the mid range jump shot is gone. So. INCORPORATES. Oh come. KOMO's only one Carmelo teammate incorporated more than anybody I've ever seen. CJ. mccollum is a mid range. So that's as. Well. As the years have gone by you seem less and less. Mellow have almost become obsolete because. Can Be. Absolutely. Let's say that well, I mean in terms of because his style of play is back down. But. It has definitely gone by the wayside players like Rip Hamilton certain degree Reggie Miller, but he's still three point specialist also, but you do not see that mid range show. So I can argue that you know maybe two three point shot is also becoming obsolete everybody's coming here shooting half court shots when the though not not everybody certain people win Lebron. Bronfman doing it his whole career not to this level but he's been Lebron bills like he's hot, he'll shoot it. Okay. So why not reward if you? Feel hot. You know a that you can shoot from that. This is why I going to extra point for our I read an article on espn about this particular top. A red how they're going diagram you know How they're going to diagram the court I don't recall how they're going to do it but wh-, where's the line? We're four point line or whereas a four point arch whereas I going to go because that three point arts especially when you hidden from the From the corners. Yeah. You've got minimum space. We step out of balance. How are you going to get their four point? Four Point Cornish. Your four point Corner Shot that won't happen so I think that would be. You know kind of. Weird but it won't happen I. Think at first this you just incorporate four point show I think you gotta I will be you're absolutely right. The first couple of years you have players trying to shoot at four point shot but I think as it develops over the later years you'll see this we come to north. And you won't have players out there that don't need to be unit. I think we're happy to see more and more player she did. This was go see. You'll see the bell past the half court. That's Where coaching comes in though? If. You're. A row. Four point shot though she four point shot because even right now you don't really see you can see that from. Dame. Steph. Hardin Lebron. In a couple of of players maybe out there. But you know, I just thought it'd be interesting topic to talk about. So you guys are like Hell No. Hell no y'all like. Any no-go. So. Do you think it's going to happen you? Know you say no but not. Because there's a couple of things at play one is NBA records. really. messes. Up. With. NBA. To the point and was can do that momentum is just logistically the reason arrive at two point three point won't work is because of the Statis- statistics with right when you get to four point shot it. Doesn't just dilute the two point shot it. It makes it you. If you ever take a two point shot, you're doing yourself a true to service. Yeah. You Sue the rockets have done rockets understand if you're should have mid range jumper statistically to back shot when you get the four point jumping. Is. Analytic sub is going to be all best. Up Der der more lousy ideally would hate on. Hate the. Mess up his was that. The new. The new format doesn't work for the rockets. It would be a problem I don't know I can see him saying no no. Yet, rockets are three pointers are layups. That's statistically makes sense in compared to the two point shot right when we bring in the four point shot that's destroyed. Yeah. Hi, this data reaching to talk about the the walkway shot. Well. Maybe one day in my dreams who have a habit in all star game. WHOA, fate is what they do it to where. Every last two minutes of every desert four. No but you you bring up good stuff them as you've always been progressive. So I I can't put a pass the NBA to experiment at an all star game matter of fact, that'd be the perfect place experiment. All Star game. Exactly. That's NFL. Does anyway they experiment in the preseason games or they'll do that during would call the they're all starting to. Put a the NBA, but you know there's the shooters are shooting. Deeper shots the NBA actually did what they do. They've been three point line in out think they brought in. Four couple of years. That's when the rockets. To Championships when it brought it in then like Oh analysis to clustered so they brought back. Side even know that yet it did they brought it in for a couple of years. They moved it up a little bit from now know why they did that because I guess they were they were thinking the same thing you're thinking of mid range shot is becoming obsolete. So let's move it in says the shattered by shooting any anyway but I guess it got to clustered in there and so they moved it out so. Maybe instead of making a four point shot, she moved to three point shot out further. See, I'm down for that I think I might be. Sense See What does she talking about it? Here this is the problem is when you do that, you're still messing with the dynamics of the game because to point would you do with the Corner Shot? How. Do you structure arenas? To change a little bit. Yeah you're moving things. I, just leave it alone but do you think it makes it a better? Do you think the way it's structured? Now everybody's shooting these deep shots that hurts the game I don't think it does because the reason why least dame and Steph do it I don't know about heartache and hit. They can hit because separation dame shoot to because it's an open shot for him. Hard is a little different. He wants you have your he's I don't understand hard I can't get him but Damon step they do it because a separation there such great shooters it's it's an open shot when you're Damian Lillard talk about why he pulls up it's not because he's cocky. That range and you don't want to come out here and hold me, and if you do I'll get by you and I'll just hit you closer three when you pump when I hit you at the pump. So Purposes not because I wanNA shoot deeper shots and also allow smaller guys to have more longevity. Exactly. So now you've got six foot six, two, six wants right young try. Yeah, exactly. You got these guys now well, she ain't got whereabout dribbling inside Ashtray trailed all Damn Day. So in create separation with the track Zach Leagues. Wish this years maybe I'll an elite right now. Trying to shoot. Threes. That's a good point because it wasn't pointed driving onto lane if you're gonNA shoot those open. You know distant shots yeah okay. So that's a known four point It's bad you like the idea of possible movement mine. Don't nobody Jack Your idea. I mean, there's probably other who'd have thought about it already. In the works but you WanNa reward these players for a shooting out there from further distance. All right let's keep the talk within the NBA. So, we have to players discuss right we have James Harden. Janta Kubo both these players are trying to make a run into the playoffs which one these players enters do most pressure on. To win this year. Would you say when we got to break it down and we're talking about a championship talking about making deep I'm talking about having successful year this year and that can. Be said either way sessile year might be the western conference fine. I don't think it's Wisconsin for either one of them honestly I think is finals are bust. That's where I disagree with you well, I agree with you as far. For Heart and Alvin is any pressure because for whatever reason, the narrative on harden is he is in clutch and there's nothing he can do about that. People have a negative perception of heart. He isn't clutch he's lazy. He doesn't play defense, and if you watch the game, all of those things are simply untrue ninety more. He's he's he's definitely been some kind of defense. Doesn't play right says, that's the rhetoric out there is that he doesn't do those things. So for him, it's finals or bus, but there's no pressure because if they don't make the those, the rhetoric stays the same. First round though. I mean that would be bad. That's for any superstar. Losing a first round is not good in particular series where you're expected well, I wouldn't say a lot of pundits that are not GonNa win. This would be roasted more James Harden are Jaanus. That's gets my answer I think Janas under more pressure but not is a is a different pressure from James because this is at the point in his career where we talked about it before he's so well liked that we make ourselves blind to his flaws and we don't really look at it. But if they lose this series against the magic people are gonNA say Yo Jaanus. You gotta at least beat the magic. So he's under way more pressure to at least get his conference finals James. Harden isn't under that type of pressure because nobody expects them to do it. Anyway is an expectation thing. We expect the honest to be in the NBA finals. So if he's not back to back MVP possibly defensive player of the year two, that's a problem I disagree I think James. Harden. Is a lot more pressure. James Harden has been star for a lot longer than. Janas has a couple more years of okay. We have a built in excuse your Milwaukee they've been a a young hot team while now things and finally coming together. Okay But with James, you've the rockets had apple opportunity to to to get out of the West and into the finals of had so many opportunities and they haven't been able to do it because James Harden hasn't been the player in the playoffs. Now granted when you answer the playoffs, your staff going. To take a dip, but he hasn't carried the team like he did he doesn't need to score thirty seven points every every single game but that's what we need. That's winning to see and he did exactly what I think he needed to do in order for them the win without having Russell. Westbrook in the lineup granted somebody else Gordon, did step up for him but I think that you know you you you've got games you've got to win it needs to needs come. To to that James ardizzone superstar I, know to this point in his career where every single other superstar he's played within the play offs. All of them have gotten injured. Paul. Westberg now and Dwight. Howard. But let me ask you this about James. Staying on topic if James Loses. In the first round, how does rhetoric change on him? Don't. There's no pressure on him because people are going to say what they're gonNA say but there's no, there's no rhetoric change if Janas loses in the first round, I, think it will be the first time in his career people say. Is He as good as we think years or what's going on down there. Pressure, if you will, if he loses against this team yeah, that'd BE A. That'd be huge. So yeah. So now that you put it that way especially when you face a magic team that is not even above five hundred. Yeah. That'd be that'd be huge huge on his face I I do think there's more pressure on you. Honest right now he's starting to understand what it really means to be NBA superstar in this league when you come to a certain point and you're starting to do certain things now, people want you to get to that next level like you to Chris. Now they want to see you carry. This is not a series against magic that the Milwaukee Bucks should lose their. Let's go. Back. Sweep. Through when that I? Say on this thing and sometimes look. I haven't seen a lot of. I mean I I have but. It's almost like maybe you can kind of have a former there to stop him. I don't know if Orlando was figuring out I, don't know. We'll wait to see what happens in this first round. I. Do think walk he's going to win. Don't get me wrong but. Ever. Since Milwaukee's to his bubble had a good. Other than the first half of the first game, they have not have not no. So I'm not going to see here Mercedes. It's a four gone conclusion. They're going to beat Orlando. You've I do think you're going to beat Orlando they have to they have to beat them in five personally. Go six or seven no no, no no no. No. I mean that sometimes that happens does it but I'll say this when talking about the bucks an Janas. Janas Kinda has Lebron issue even Dwight heart issue tuna standpoint of he's so good in the regular season, his team's rack up wins, and sometimes organization can feel like we have a good team will know you just have a superstar Red Hot Nova superstar other then Chris Middleton and Brook Lopez. Most people were struggle even MBA fans. We've struggled a name other guys on that roster that scare you just off the top of my head is Pat Contin scaring if you know nobody else in that? Good. So no Wesley Matthew Sono Giorgio. Robin Lopez Point is like. He has that pressure he definitely does but look at the roster. He's a phenomenal player I I feel for him because I don't know if they're gonNa make the finals I know we're talking about him versus harden. He's expected to get to the finals. He being the honest Harim is not an. John is going to get there and this might be the first time in his career where people blame him right you rightfully. So they kick out the first row. The books should be the favorite out the east like with Ben Simmons Gone because we talked about this with seventy, six new favorite Monas-. Not The case anymore even Toronto's playing really good and have cameras on his ball ball I'm going. I'm not GonNa Sleep Raptors they are bawling I kind of I can see Kawhi Leonard sometimes being maybe I should. Maybe he should talk. I know he loves late Little Rock, at least in the same kind of a boat that they play. Well, we get the clippers we'll. We'll get on another pocket. Janas is definitely under a lot of pressure I. think he's in a more pressure than harden this because what you said even hardened. Harden loses this first route. I could see him balling out and they lose honestly I don't see him just. Going by the wayside and not up harding like numbers and losing as far as. Even to be honest up Janas numbers and losing first round and guess who the plan go to. No doubt. So yeah, you're definitely right I think. The most pressure definitely onto Janas Johnson. The CUCO get somewhere I think at least has. No doubt but. Beyond put Leno they had to get to the foul. Is Good as Toronto, because I can see you being Toronto and Milwaukee Bucks. If they go to the conference finals I, still think it has to be honest. Now, this is another question here to. Less they james. Harden guest to the finals. UNTO CUCO The definers. Whose careers they help. The most. Like a as get into the fight against the final knowing, it would help own harden. Because he got there, they can no longer say he didn't lead his team. is so young you would expect him to get there at some point. Says part of it's part of the reason why? I don't put a lot of the pressure on the honest. Yeah. He's so young and he's only been. We're talking about superstar Janas as far as Janas. That's into cooper that we know right now we're talking about three years of that. So I think like I said, I know spectacular is high because there was so many games but the guys only been a superstar for handful years. So I think he's got he's got that Bilton excuse now that doesn't mean that he that he he needs they have to make it to the east. Did I. Need to make each company Grew yes. They have to make that. That's a must. Yes if they make it there and lose. It it's fun but they have to at least make it easy conference finals Lost my train of thought. What would you? It. WHO. Does help them right right. No it'll help Joe James Harden. Deaf Zen like Chris was talking about that narrative, they can't say that anymore unless it's Russell Westbrook at least of there but I would foresee it as being James Harden as the main guide leads into the finals. Officially, passed a Kawai. Leonard mid Clippers Lebron lead Lakers dame out. They're also doing what they're doing right now as far as favorites are concerned. Rock is probably you know third or four favourite out of the West to go to final right You can debate that all day, but I think nothing that was interesting topic. James. Harden or Jaanus. Most pressure by do think the most pressure definitely on the honest right now. Because, he's trying to get to that next level everybody lease that he's that star but can you go upset next level and be in the same category with Lebron and Kawhi Leonard in them? So we'll see. So let's talk a little NFL. Shall We? We've been talking about two teams for the past couple of weeks? BEST CASE WORST CASE SCENARIO WE'RE GONNA go out of the NFC East Philadelphia Eagles are doing the cowboys no, not yet not yet I'm kidding. Now. With low in trade when we get there we. Definitely, smashed the car on the cowboys that. So we're going to the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York giants. The first team we're going to dive into is New York football giants. BEST CASE SCENARIO FOR NEW YORK giants. Giants I do but I don't know about their coats or hiccups every head coach. Coach Joe Judge. Okay Rookie head coach first year there I like their pieces though I like Daniel Jones I like Saquon Barkley on care what anybody says about Chris McCaffrey i. think that Saquon Barkley the best running back in the league. The sake of not arguing with you you don't don't don't don't argue with drug test. So don't argue that you know you'd think is Christian McCaffrey not just me everybody who lives. Everybody everybody I. Know I, don't think they agree with me. Okay. Come out. So anyway. I think it's Saquon. Barkley was all day Carolina Panthers he'd be racking up. Zuber number. This. Nonsense. Over Ted. Kennedy. Barkley tough. Running back in the late. Let's go there. That's fine. Okay. That's fine. He's Very Gabrielle Anyway. So with that being said, they have Daniel Jones, which is obviously you know any football team looking at the key to Cecil season. Most of the time it is that quarterback unless you have like a elite defense or something like that. So the best case scenario for the New York giants man is tough me to say this. I think it's like maybe seven nine. Eight somewhere around there and it's just because I do not know exactly what? Joe. Judge. Can Do with this football team. I really liked pieces I really do worst case scenario you look in about what they finished last year foreign twelve they can. They can easily finish for untold begin. So that's where I haven't met. I. Still have as being a playoff contending team. maybe if Gioja show something this year next year I can you know had their best case scenario a little bit higher but I still like their piece I. Still Think Daniel Jones might be a legit quarterback. I saw some some flashes last year or he was growing but I had to say like seven ninety, eight, best case scenario foreign twelve, the worst case scenario frontier giants for me. Actually like Daniel Jones, I think he's going to be good quarterback in the. NFL particularly looking at the people who trained him. Having somebody good player. But the issue is their schedule. I. It's damn near brutal. Skit Oh, it is. It's very hard out the best case scenario for them. It had Christian McCaffrey I may give them seven or eight wins but. Working as a man, I gotta work it in but I think best case scenario. Is Best Gay six or seven wins I mean that means everything is working out well. And reason why say that against because of the schedule they have seahawks they already playing. The Philadelphia Eagles twice. That's the only other team NFC east would have got to worry about. Then you have the steelers nine plan NFC west no, the and. Six or seven games is the best case. Worst case scenario I'm really looking at their schedule could go sixteen. I'm being serious. I'll tell you what I'll tell you what if you take out the division games maybe that's where they get a win if you take the division games that out a division games or maybe the bears but get them. So early in the season, the bears will be better. They got the steelers they got the forty niners, the rams tough Buchan ears that's what Brady. Where did they? Okay maybe. Okay. The bengals that'd be the game. If you beat the Bengals, they may have owned sixteenth season. Yeah I, mean, he knows there from year to year some teams are not as good as we think they're going to do. You're right about that, but the teams that they're playing. If, the Ravens and browns are good. I'd be a little surprised I expect the cardinals to be better. I just do the only team of their schedule I knows not going to be a good team is the bengals and that's because we don't know what the rookie quarterback down there is going to do. He's actually good than getting that. We're. Going to be roughly there I think case scenario I'm thinking I'm GonNa, not win game I would say to wins it can be pretty ugly I I had to. Dallas Cowboys Fan I'm on a dog, the dog. Going sixteen just because. I want to look at the roster their problem you're GonNa sees is their defense. You don't see. They're not a lot of good players on I. Don't think really are any good players on the defendant I'll go. Yeah. Their offense they've got telling on offense I do like Daniel Jones. They've got a great running back and Saquon Barkley got a really good tight end. Hopefully, if you spells out a healthy he up their team but he doesn't say healthy and Ingram, and one of underrated players an anti he's good. He just healthy can't stay exactly dude is cold so. If your office as healthy. I can give them six or seven games. Just, because you've got an office coordinator and Jason Geared that you're GONNA get office from Jason. is going to be predictable as heck, but you're going to get offers from Jason. So I can find somewhere in there six games at at the best about the worst you're probably looking at a two win team just like you said I mean got Pittsburgh San Francisco Chicago is it it is brew Dallas I mean they always played Dallas it's a close game so you might get a win out. Of Dallas, the Rams I don't think he's going to beat the rams Washington's got. Oh, my God, their defense, their front seven is amazing. So you might even get them win against Washington Tampa Bay Tom. Brady not going to happen Seattle Arizona with what they got going up there you know. Grew and sixteen owned the. You know what? They're not gonNA always sixteen. Sixteen I think at the worst probably you know to to wins. At the most you know. Vis cover things you mentioned specifically you mentioned Jason Garrett being there. People forget that he's a really good office coordinator. As predictable but he's not a good NFL head coach at all but an offensive coordinator damn good at his job. So maybe to winslow not enough. So that's why I kinda look at the way you know Joe Judge Right now has been criticized so far early on for his coaching antics out there but I think that the combination would joe judge and Jason. Garrett might be good for his new. York football team because a problem with Jason Garrett over there in when he was a cowboys. You know he didn't have any I WANNA say he didn't know how to discipline his players I want to say but oddly enough it seemed like it was a good culture but I. Didn't know how to coach. A football team, right? Because he built he built a great. I'll get everyone talking about Dallas but he he built a culture. Yeah. It was just when it came down to XS the nose and the decisions that you need. When you look at, we look at Dallas and You know what? Let's talk about this? I'M GONNA get to deepen the DALLAS. It. You'll be I think you'll be great fit for that offense. Yeah. We'll see I think if if the if the combination does work well together, maybe they could sneak out seven wins like you said Chris I'm the concessionary wins I don't think all those teams. Arizona's good on paper but I wanna see them actually exigent. You know did a couple of teams are Chicago looks okay. Is Mitchell trubisky going to be a starter living and then the bears yet right now we have I will say just as a precursor before when we do them. Chicago by a good year. Trubisky back there I'm telling you. Don't trust at all trubisky or Nick foles. We'll see. That question DB my. Head. going. All right. So we're going to talk about as Philadelphia Eagles, very, very interesting team They want US through a couple of years back they finished nine seven last year they went to the playoffs correct and they they lost in the playoffs but that's That team is a solid team. They always find a way to get into the playoffs. Can Carlson Carson Wentz stay healthy I think that's the biggest question mark for Philadelphia Eagle Team because we I would like to see. Him Take. The next step I've always played all last season he did. But I mean the year before that, they could have won a super bowl with him but we don't know feed they can or not. They made that suitable one run with Nick foles. So they don't know they a playoff run wouldn't. Right. Go Room started by. Wins and he didn't get hurt he went to win the MVP. Well he got hurt and everybody sees it. Is Come on out they don't get the number Z's now wins. He's a, he did all the work to get them that number listen. So we don't know for sure car if Carson wentz was in that playoff situation that they would have made it since reserve that's what I'm saying. So we shall see I just hope he can stay healthy healthy can get to their next level because I do think that he has. The potential to be one of the top quarterbacks in sleek I really do I've always seen that everybody agrees with that. I don't know why but I think he has to be one of those quarterbacks. worse case scenario for the Eagles. Just because they do plan in a vision with the giants and the cowboys. Cowboys. In their a giants. In The Washington, a football team I think they're worse case scenario probably going to be six, six and ten. That's the worse worst case scenario. But their biscuits near I. Think they can actually you know runaway with honestly if they really you know everything's clicking, they can win amount Levin Games that division so. For me, I think this team is a class of the NFC East I'm being real. worst-case nervous. Force worst-case era I see them losing Max Seven Games. Nine and seven season that's worse case they and that's for me to worse case scenario is that. If something happens with the quarterback, what do you think is never happened within for good. On everything. That's a fair question. If he can set help, he's proved that already. So the next question is Kennedy's receivers, catch the ball and they've been working all off season. Man and Sean. Jackson's back there isn't he I think he's back. He's back. I'll man I had seen winning baskets and everything go thirteen and three. They have all the pieces that they need. Carson wentz is a beast. He's kind of fallen back for whatever reason. I. Don't you mentioned I have no idea why he's not talked about as far as a young crop of quarterbacks but he has all the intangibles. He makes the right place he moves with his legs he's. He's one of those quarterbacks were I feel if I if meet today Chris on this podcast says, I can pick a quarterback play with he's one of the few I'd WanNa play with because he's that good. There's some quarterbacks. Words is scheme and there's a coaching ball. No, not Carson wentz is a beast. Mortar type I'm a Dallas Cowboy Fan. I like Arsenal. I like I like I hate him because he plays on what the eagles, but I like him as a quarterback when he got drafted. I hoped somehow falls the cowboys did I know we're going to have Tony Romo for you know very long but I I've loved him. The guy's good quarterback is really good and he's fallen out just because they injury concerns right but you know he's able to stay healthy last year and I think that's GonNa lead him to having a healthy feature. So Carson Wentz as a quarterback and health and all of that right now it's just all about surrounding with the talent he needs now we talk about talent. And Organization Philadelphia's a great is stable organization. They're well coached they're disciplined. So no matter the talent level because we look at the roster is not it's not there's not a glaring amount of talent there but they're well coached team. They're always going to be ballgame. So for me I, think you're looking at it twelve team thirteen when best-case scenario worst-case, this team cannot lose more than more than a seven game. So you grew agree with you, you're not gonNA, lose them on the seven games even they've got Bruce Guzzle as well. I mean you know brutal talking. About absolutely absolutely. But you know unless they lose every single ham against the top teams like New Orleans Green Bay Seattle. That's that's the only reason why I got him to nine and seven, and then one game they lose against the cowboys. But I can is lucy his game these guys ideally going tennis six, nine, hundred, seven, twelve, and four at the at the at the Max. So, we ought mess. So we all have them as a playoff contending team basically sure for sure. Yet I, do think that talent there they should be in the playoffs. So. We'll see about that as well. This guy's. Real good stuff. We'll talk about our next two teams in the upcoming episode of the PODCAST. Do they get a preview or not who they know who ruined talking about not being loyal listener looming who now?

James thirty six. We know that over player. But he's still in his somehow in his probably the best player in the end that his avis can anthony state healthy. But if i had to pick just for argument's sake. I'm gonna go with the clippers. The lakers so far this season i'm stanford jazz. Having a wreck the lakers through their team consistently into the new channels ports pate sports call podcasts. Welcome to new channel sports. Podcast i am your host the one and only owe any.

That's new channel spilled and you see a an l. sports. i am joined by two fantastic co host. Big low how you doing sir. Good big low coming down and then it's time also join us phenomenal one crazy. How's it going sir. A man it is going good. What is good to y'all. I've had a good day. Let me start off by saying that. So that means we're going to have a good show. That's what i'm talking about is what's up that's what's up so let's do a segment here and get right into it free minutes week on this year building thirty. Think so what you just heard. It was back in two thousand seven. The golden state warriors up against the utah. Jazz baron davis dunkin on the head of ak forty seven. I guess i was his nickname back in the day. But it was a it was a crazy dunk. One one two more disgusting dunks ever seen in my life. It was during a play offs and not only that the crowd was going bonkers afterwards. I mean that golden state warriors crowd was just like the seattle seahawks crowd back in the day it was a frenzy but it the way it all happened. Baron davis's game is pretty pretty underrated. Actually we think about everything he could have done. His handles his hops. he blew by darren. Williams like it was nothing at the time. I was our big darren williams fan coming up. I thought he was going to be the next big thing once. He got also a much better player than chris. Paul we're here. We how we we heard a bus. No we were in the same boat chris. We both thought that he was a much better player than a lotta point guards coming up back in the day. Okay we're specifically crispell. Yes we did. We did because we thought that he was going to be. That guy. Saying we bro. Not part of it. You say you look at dead reseda. these days. But he just blew right pass their williams he went to the whole kochta's hand back and this dunked it all up in the face of andre kalinka it was it was. It was disgusting then. He pulled his shirt off for puerto up for good measure it. It was a disgusting. Obviously that for me. So they'll those are the we believe warriors the warriors those who've a true fans and remember that year going back in time prior to the dunk. They just eliminated the number. One seed. jabre. Maverick in convincing fashion and then coming up for that dunk. The way my career goes in your heart. And he'd be brown. Come out of it really comes out of nowhere. It was like he peaks of the does like hello reme- that dunk in the list of blister are my two favorite dunks of all time. But what makes the baron davis dunk so great. You just mentioned it was. He took off his shirt. The crowd is going crazy and you can see like the band on his back because you know he had back problems you can see the ban on his back and then stephen jackson is blowing them off saying this cool down. Cool it down that that crowd that crowd from in oakland when the wars were in oakland. You mentioned that you mentioned i think. Said the seahawks supersonic seahawks supersonics those those teams in the north west. Including if you're an mls fan the seattle sal timbers in the northwest. I'll give it up if you if you're a fan even saw podcast you in the northwest. Y'all had the best fans in the country just awesome so that the the crowd noise made the dunk even greater they do it. I hate man. I hated that golden state team yell already known from dallas. And i'm a dallas. Mary's fan so that was not a particularly bro. That wasn't that wasn't good for me man and they took us out the way they did but i hated. I hated that particular golden state's team because you know the the mavericks just never you know. They never masto very well for them and they would always run us a mock but that that was a nasty very nasty dunk. Had like kris porzingis man. That was the best man he boy pop them. And just like you say. A man dave's game with very underrated match powerful player. Great defenceman great ball. Handling the do was a great team leader to mass. So big up so those but elsa hot dump man yeah he is. He's a dude that you would play on the playground or play in the gym. I got no house. He'll come up and he was. Show you my goodness. You have trebizond eagles sir problem. He would definitely a problem. All right him in Real quick him and st francis Are two very underrated players. They are we know them because we watched them but the younger kids coming up. It's they may not know them as well. I call them my mitch richmond. Because he mitch richmond player that the older heads something he was really rob. I didn't i didn't watch it right. Didn't i don't really remember him. Other than being on the lakers when they won the championship stevie franchise all right so that was flash back. we're going to keep into the nba. The los angeles lakers playing the western conference. They are the defending champions. Lebron james and anthony davis there. Which team do you think poses. The biggest challenge to los angeles lakers the biggest threat in the western conference. Right now. i'm been team. That poses the biggest threat to the lakers. Is anthony davis. It's my team. Davis is healthy. They're going to win the west right. It just depends on. Anthony davis health. We have lebron james. he's thirty six. We know that he's an older player but he's still in. Its he somehow. Assuming this prime is probably the best player in nba. It's my ended davis. Can anthony stay healthy. But if i had to pick a team just for argument's sake i'm gonna go with the other team in. La clippers but the lakers. So far this season i understand the jazz having on record. But the lakers have proven that their team they're consistent in the addition of Schreuder or schroder is only made them that much better. I'm going to go in and say the other team in la as well even though they were huge disappointment last year in not getting to the conference finals. I still think that they pose the biggest threat. Because you get kawai. leonard paul george. They do have Some playoff experience. Paul george has actually had some battles with lebron james back when he was up the pacers and they're going up against that he team so i still think they are. The biggest threat to the lakers to dethrone them little was able to do in the eastern conference as well. We went toronto when their championship. So i i do think that that mix poses the biggest threat but you hit it around the nail chris. If anthony davis healthy. There's really no hope for anybody in the west really and truly because no one would have stopped. Anthony davis on the lakers team. Just not gonna be able to do it. But if i had named team it would be. La that will be the team right there for me to look the clippers and low before you got us on some real quick. I apologize real. Quick I for my darkhorse team before low. He's been gives his pick. Because we both the clippers. I gotta go with damian lillard and the portland. No easy. All you gotta do that. We good bro doing ca. Chris oh that was. That was all you chris. You can't help yourself. You got a problem here. Probably a problem. No your problem you you guys get a bit in the studio watching record. Oh lit up. Damian lillard now i i all we go here we go. Nfl starts to safety with cam. Oh my gosh take go ahead. i'm gonna say the same thing the clippers. I agree with you guys. I'm a little bit concerned with some of the injuries that they've had and the fact that they've you know they're on a three game losing streak before going going on a break and they're i mean they lost against a three playoff teams so I'm just keep an eye on that. If these guys can continue we're actually get healthy and get back into winning form on the way to the playoffs. I i. my darkhorse l. Not necessarily dark horse because they lost you know. Three one lead last year during the bubble playoffs. But you know i'll i'll I'm going to stick with our number one seed in the utah jazz. I go with them. I think they you know they played for messed up against la. Pretty well saying you've got routed. Go bear and Oh my gosh is. His name leaves me. What what's what's donovan essential. Thank you very much. The fact that they've elevated their game. I kinda gives rise gives me hope that you know they. They can really push it to the next level so that will be my number two my darkhorse candid. But i'm i'm with you guys with with la clippers and plus. I would like to see the la clippers. Do something you know. And i don't know. And just you mentioned this lad. Podcasts or i think is over the tv show. I don't know that there's a possibility that the clippers the lakers can play in the in the western conference championship. But that that would be a game that i like to say so that. That's my pig right there. The other clip. If i had to pick a dark horse i think. Oh you'd be surprised by this. I pick to phoenix suns. Because it's all about matchups right and you look at the phoenix suns. Their point guards. Chris paul and you look at the lakers point guard in schroeder. We already know that chris. Paul insured with the thunder last season. There's an edge there for chris. Paul you have a deondraye eight in that. He's not gonna be able to hold anthony davis but he can certainly cause problems for him and he's going to have to defend them on the side of the court and then what's lebron james's kryptonite. It's it's really shooters. Hope everybody else. But when you can launch from anywhere. He can't really do anything about that. You think about jason terry from the mavericks thing. Obviously about klay thompson and steph curry for for the warriors. Well we know what devon booker presents as a shooter so the phoenix suns have a really. I think they have a shot at causing some problems causes some issues for the lakers. You know we're not gonna get the western conference. I really honestly do think that it just depends on what teams going to step up right. We can talk about dark. Horses in which teams are dangerous. Utah dangerous u. Utah does match work. The lakers phoenix suns. Do match up. Well against the lakers. Also on we talk about the denver nuggets going into this situation. They face the lakers last year. So they kind of know what to expect when they go up against the lakers again. They did face again this year. The biggest threat is still going to be the clippers. I damn near every single team in the western conference is dangerous. If you're not playing you're a game or if any davis is not completely healthy then yes. Somebody's teams can pose a problem to the lakers. But right now we're on consensus. We do believe best clippers. They're the biggest threat to the lakers. Right now at this moment. Yeah right. So i guess we're gonna talk nba for for this podcast. Because that's what's that's what's happening right now. One zion williamson. I don't know if you guys who says seeing this guy play lately. He is impressing the hell out of me. I'll tell you that right now. His way he imposes his will in that pink. Sometimes i'm like i mean he's taking rebounds away from i saw him take a rebound away from jaanus. Onstar kupa on yeah. He's a strong dude. He took away like he was a boy your child he took it with a with a deducted he had his one move we shake and bake this one guy went to the whole and dunk on his head like he is if he can get if he can get his his handles now and get a you know a decent jump shot we're looking at we're looking at the next level charles barkley basically charles barkley was not as athletically gifted as zion williamson is to allow things on the court down looking at this guy doing as far as the stature and be able to rebound at that height of cosmic problem man. He's gonna be a problem. But the question i pose i started going on a tangent about him. We'll ziya wilson be an mvp in this league. Does he have enough to beat. Mvp well i seem to recall maybe about a year ago where we had a podcast long. Wasn't that long ago. It wouldn't have long podcast. And it was me those the host on here named bigalow and there was the the one and only odi and we had this question on there and and odi said that john moran would be a better. Perot don williams. I think the answer to that bow zeon is. He's a man child. He's a beast. He's larry johnson and charles barkley in one human being. That's honestly what is your question is. Can it be an be i. I don't think that's really the threshold for him. The threshold for him is how many at this point the way he's balling. How many bro i. He's amazing and the thing that makes them even better is. He's an organization. Like the pelicans right. Now it's not a bad organization but they're just not a winning or an organization. They have certain pieces around that team. But it's just it's a port poorly fit rosser. And they're doing it again. They did the same anthony. Davis and i'm afraid they're gonna do it again with zion williamson a poorly fit rosser. You have good pieces. But they all don't really make sense together but as far as this. Is i on this concerned. Far zionists concerned i. I don't know if there's any question if he stays healthy he's going to be an mvp in the nba. There's just no question because the narrative is already there and then vp conversation. Nba's all about narrative is not even necessarily who's the best player it's narrative and the narrative is. He came out as a very good prospect. And he's living up to it. He does is again next season. He will be the league next season. Nah i know about that but okay. That's that's interesting. I mean one of my one of the concerns worse than that particularly podcast was was health. And he's healthy. Now he's balling out of control. is an ad think he has a potential to be that. I don't know how sustainable and that's one poses on how sustainable his game is going to be mean. He's only going to be able to jump over for so long so if he's going to win every pete and he's got to do it here within the next five years because you know he's going to go along blake griffin route. One injury one leg significant leg injury away from his explosiveness. No longer being a part of his game so is can you develop men all around player to be an all around threat and to be able to defeat his opponents of multiple. You know variety of different ways at that point. I'm more open to that. D of him having multiple believing a win at least one but if you do that and be a sharpshooter from the outside of motives game to likes of a lebron james. Lebron came in the same way right but lebron opened his game to passing and shooting in developed. A three point shot so now the guy can shoot you know and and the guy can you know can be that most important dynamic player on his team so i. I don't know if he can do that. He just doesn each player that has power and explosiveness packed into his body. Or can he really elevate and one of my one of the things too. Is you know at some point. I believe that he's got to transform his body in somewhere inform once again drawn. Comparisons to the lebron. I don't know this is right or wrong abroad. Did the same thing. Lebron was weighing two hundred eighty. Two hundred seventy five pounds of he was able to transform body become a two one prolong his career and further. You know make his game more dynamic. So that's that's my thing. But does he have the ability to be an mvp. I think you can get one if he's going to win multiple. He's he's got to be more varieties of his game for me now. I definitely i think he definitely has talent. Definitely as a potential best there. That's obvious you see that but there are a lot of questions you pose. Healthwise candy continue to be healthy on a year to year basis. And i look at his by type. I think it would be pretty difficult for him. To stay. healthy continues to stay around that weight. He doesn't lean up a little bit. But that's that's one thing there as far as the other skills that he has he does need to continue to improve. Jump shot Maybe get a little post game there as well. And he doesn't get other teammates involved also he needs i this year. I've been very impressed the way to try to utilize him because they've given him the ball. Go ahead do what you do. As opposed to the year before that were there kind of feeding off of Like alleyoop dunks and stuff like that. Now he's taken his game to that level if he continues to to rise and take his game to a level where he becomes the The elite score on the team. Then yeah he can win. Mvp i mean no doubt no doubt about that as far as the race of him in japan is too early for you to say all the things you're saying i still think john is still a very very good basketball player and he does. How tuesday as well but we are talking about. You brought it up. You brought up meteorites season right. I got it is because it's obviously john miranda great talent as well but i think the difference is. We're playing a video game right. So my two k fans germany would be four and a half stars. Yes zone would be five. And that's the difference between the two at least now and when you're five star player and you're playing at that level. The odds are at some point. They're going to winning. Mvp award no. I definitely i definitely would you guys. At some point. He should be mvp candidate. I'll go as high as saying that. Because i just i still need to see. Because he's imposing his will right now that's what he's doing shack shack ish okay. I'm not saying that they had the same game but shack this went out there and it poses will shocked and get to the next level until he actually put some skill into his game. He that jump hook. He got some basic post moves. 'cause he can do all that all day every day because of imposing his will that's was iowa has do yes to polish his game a little bit more. He's out there on raw. Talent is doing it and everybody. I like what i see from his iowa's right. I really do but you mentioned i wish injury on anybody i don't but that is still a big question mark for me especially we look at his by type. Some as we dunks and he comes down. It looks awkward. sometimes. I don't know if you guys say this. His his movement is. I've never seen before or whatever but sometimes it's movement is seems awkward to me. I would like him to trim now a little bit and get a little bit leaner. I really would. Everybody would but i will buy guys bits. When lebron i came into the league people are saying he's all athleticism should he get injured in. Never work out. Because he's awfully he's so talented at this point right now i grew with the he needs more skill but asking the age-old argument that everybody says we of course we hope he doesn't get injured but my point of saying that he could win it as soon as next season. Is this about narrative about it like this. Let's say the pelicans don't make the playoffs this season. And let's if tennessee may get knocked out whatever the case may be if they come back next season there seat or have run like the jazz have. The narrative is going to be like this is the guy. I think years too early though. I really think next year is too early this engineer. I'm just saying there. I could see the narrative is my point is there. I agree with you. Is there that the narrative is definitely i williamson but you mentioned something else as far as comparing him to lebron james. I'll be lebron. James honestly the bron. James is basketball. Iq come into the league was under level science. Why he was not at the same level that lebron. Jk hype and athleticism That's really what i'm talking about. Yeah the hype is. They're definitely get listening is definitely there But the question mark is can he build restless skills around him to really become deadly player that mvp caliber player. All right so our last topic of discussion we stay in the nba. A lot of teams come into the season. I feel like there's a lot of pressure for them to get deep into the playoffs. I wanna say championships but what what teams is. Are there the most pressure for them to win this year. I'll start off. Of course we just named this team. As far as being the biggest threat to the los angeles lakers is definitely the clippers. I think the clippers have to go to a finals this year. K if they don't go to found this year it puts a question mark. Paul george was already has question more at the. The side of the backboard into bubble did a question. Mark was there at the columnists so playoff p last year. Not doing squat. The question was there. So leonard kinda got a past. There wasn't a lot of criticism on his part. Because of what paul george did but they're not able to make it deep into the playoffs and what. I'm saying deepens the playoffs. Go up up against the lakers. Losing in seven games a tough seven game series if they go up against anybody else in lose the criticism is going to start to fall in it. They're all that matters that he didn't toronto. There's gonna be no more about it anymore. I'm like okay. So what have you done for us lately. So i think that's why as far as our go with a top three. I think that they're the most pressure is the lakers right now to win a championship this year. At the lakers. The clippers clippers. I agree with you. And i'll say this for the lakers. You could potentially say the lakers and it's really for one reason space jam. Two's coming out and if you're a bra you can't be on space jam saying you're trying to save the world when you're not the world champion. It's embarrassing nobody's talking about this. They don't wanna championship. There's going to be embarrassing but you'll check out my new movie space jam. Chris does is stuff like that only know me is really a lot of pressure and one of the things that happened. Recently was the spurs talking about new. Marcus aldridge potentially bean. They saying they're not going to buy him outright but he he may be traded. I'll say this for the clippers. If the clippers obtain lamarcus aldridge if they get him either via via buyout or trade it just puts like you said that much more pressure on them because you have yet another player going. They're chasing a championship. So for me is a lakers clippers in those. Those are the two teams that had the most pressure I would've put up there by. I think lamarcus artists have already left. Santos i actually agreed to part way right right. Agreed how they're going to do right right right. I'm not gonna put the lakers up there especially after just wanted last year. I don't think there's pressure space jam. Because i like christmas. Really lebron lebron. Yeah lebron if she wants to. You know we're talking chasing rings but as an organization. I don't think so. I think the lakers number. Not the clippers number one but how about this once again. Let me bring up the utah jazz. How about an organization hasn't won a championship. Also interesting right okay. So i was going through zero championships to conference finals. Only ninety seven and ninety eight and then you have nine division titles last coming. Twenty seventeen tune hasn't won a championship and they got close last year and blew a three one lead in the western conference championship. The utah gets the western conference champion. Mobile so this is a team that has a lot of pressure. I'd say i'd venture to say the denver nuggets as well. these are two teams are viewed the same. They're always with the net four six seed they always get to that divisional title and then i feel like year. It's one of one or the other that wins either gets blown out of the first round or gets put out of the second round. So i'd say one of those two team bump putting the jazz up there. I mean this is a team. Championship starved that needs to get to a conference championship and when an nba championship. I don't think they're as there is as much pressure pressure on all the most teams right but we are big time pressure because of the criticism that will come with it if utah to deep run into the playoffs. I don't think our curriculum that much right okay. Well that's what you're supposed to do now. I look at a team on the eastern conference. The has all the star power right now. I think second is brooklyn nets. There's a lot of pressure for them to win. this year. After they acquired james harden and now they had their victory and now they have blake griffin there as well. I think that for that organization is definitely championship. Robust they cannot. It will be affiliate season out of the eastern conference point blank period. You don't have colorado. James harden kyrie irving on the same team. You don't get off eastern conference now. Going into the finals against potentially the lakers are the clippers. Who knows will happen there. But i still think there will be pressure on their team to win a championship. James harden especially. I know people criticize his game and everything and he he did the best he can in houston but if he comes here and he finally has arguably arguably the best team as ever had kevin durant and he still able to win a championship. That's going to be there forever coming out of the next year so i think that second on my list would be the brooklyn nets as far as the the most pressure to win a championship this year and will be the narrative for kyrie irving. Oh yeah because the question the differences. They've won championships though they'll shoot individuals one championship. That's why i kinda put more emphasis on. James harden the reason why the mentioned nafta's a one year pass right so i agree with you. Oh they don't make the conference. Finals particularly that will make the nba finals. Look bad but they're kind of clippers. The clippers didn't make it but we didn't crush them. It was embarrassing. But we said you guys better make it the following season so this year. I don't wanna say they kind of have a pass right if they blow up and employed. I'm going. We're all going to watch it with popcorn and faster happen but i think they get one season reprieve but the clippers on the other hand. If they lose it could all be over as this literally could be. The end is is is a little different pressure for me. Well we'll we talk about what's going on and the question is being imposed. I i agree with you. I feel like they do have a one year pass. But i still think there's more pressure on the brooklyn nets. Did any other team to win it. Besides the clippers because we look at the next thing on my list third would be to philadelphia seventy sixers. I think there's a lot of pressure on them to win as well. They just got the new head coach. Doc rivers Join having a best year ever had. He is definitely going to be in. My is the mvp of the league. But if they're not able to get past up also as well. There will be some criticism also on that team but not as much as a brooklyn nets. Because it's not as much talent on the philadelphia. Seventy sixers as there isn't a brooklyn nets to brooklyn nets are filled with talent. We have those three players. I can't think of any other team. Utah jazz national much pressure. No the nuggets. No there's no other team they. You're right chris. They have passed this year but they're still immense pressure on him to get it done this year. Yeah there's there's pressure on them but this pressure at different levels of the problem. I don't say the problem in other a lot of talented teams to lows point. The utah jazz talented. They should have pressure. Because if you that good that good of a record you should add pressure but the difference is you look at a team like the clippers in the nets. It's different oppression. The clippers events are graded at levels to clippers at blazing red hot burning up the pressure for the nets. It's just hot. it's uncomfortable you can see is one of those summer days where like i can survive another day in this right. They get they get a pass. If it doesn't work out so this different levels. I agree with you. That the net on my list number three. I still have the lakers. And lebron number. I got i got okay. That's good that's taking it. But i just think it's one to keep in mind. It was the fact that the the nets are playing as well as the plate. Now it is surprising because we didn't think katie was going around to form the way he has. So there's a cherry on top. So i think that that built in were katie's injury and not knowing because it's not a given whether he was playing well at not. It wasn't a given that he was going around the form this year. We're looking towards okay. Once you can get to the tournament then maybe his is healed up and caught up in enough time to really start to make some noise so you know the fact that we're getting what we're getting now is actually very unexpected and the fact that you know james harden just so happen to pop up to their team once again. that's that's unexpected as well so I believe they get it passed Give them more time to heal now. How 'bout how. 'bout the milwaukee bucks the seventy sixers but how about the milwaukee bucks the fact you have a two time. Mvp on team. I think that pressure should be blake. Should be if it's not blazing hot. It should be blazing hot. I i agree with you. But part of what makes a team have pressure is also the expectations of that team. I think after milwaukee loss last year people have just kind of just random them off like no. You don't have enough to get to nba finals. I'm in that consensus. I don't think they have enough to get the nba finals. They have jaanus onto the cuco. He's a great player. he's an elite player. But after what. I saw last year in the bubble. I just don't think they're a contender. So there's for me. I feel like they're just kind playing with house money right now. I do not feel that. They are really the team to beat like they were last year. Lash it was pressure on. You happened last year. The order number one seed. There was pressure on them. They folded now. Everybody's kind of forgot about them. And that's why i don't think lot of pressure on that team right now. This shouldn't be though. I lo- i'm glad you brought up that team. It's the same thing with the space. Jam thing with me with the lakers. I'm really saying this. Lebron you're right. Oh you're absolutely right. The bugs don't have pressure because we don't think they can win. But i will tell you this. Everybody loves jaanus just like everybody loved dwight howard but there comes a moment in your career. Where if you don't perform well if janas goes out and flames out in the playoffs again this season. There's going to be the narrative that yoda he says. not a clutch player period point blank period. So for jaanus is really really important that he has a big time run. So maybe the bucks house is not on fire but janas in his own corner and it's hot in needs to perform. Well it doesn't mean these to the finals. But he needs to be superb this no. You're absolutely right. They don't have to perform well as a team but they had to look at it and be like man you perform. We just want to back you up. And it's going to be even more pressure on yasser kubo because he signed that deal. He decided to go back to milwaukee option to go somewhere else. That's true. And i'm going to ask a question. That could be stupid. But i mean really how fair is that. I mean how and you just said. They don't have enough on their team and we kind of saw last year where janas was breaking because he was actually he began to become targeted right with the harsh hours and fouls in. You know being played physically. So how much is that of you. Know what we're just gonna put five is five on one basketball so we worried about everybody else is janas so once we take them out we know we got the game was the how much of it is that. And if we put another valuable valid piece around them or to that okay now we can kinda elevate some pressure really. Allow janas to play free-flowing basketball without you know worrying about five people on one guy right right. I think what chris was saying. As far as you know putting the lakers in their part of what puts of pressure on a team is who is it. Acceptable free to lose against in the playoffs. Right the lakers can only lose against one team. Maybe the clippers. Maybe that's the one team. The clippers going to lose gets one team. That's the lakers. You look at the brooklyn nets. They can only get one team to and that's in the finals. So i think that goes to chris's point is why the lakers there as far as the pressure being involved. But i still look at philadelphia as being one of those three teams. Because i don't think they can lose two to lie teams. Eat because joel embiid gonna be the mvp of the leak. So we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens. But i'm glad you brought milwaukee knows. Walk yeah yeah. I'm glad you brought out i i. I'm really glad it just make like a real quick point women walking if they lose quickly in the first around then it may start turning up the pressure on the organization and getting guys around him because yanna still has the ability to say all right. I signed but y'all clued not good enough. Everybody sees it. I'm out trait me. No that's absolutely right absolutely correct. It's gonna be interesting to see what happens it. It really is 'cause like i said. He made the decision to re sign with that team so in his heart of hearts even a thought. Okay we have piece around us. We can do it as now right. They lost Mammy had a great run in the bush but no one thought. Okay my as look this year again and go to the finals. No one thought okay so the fact that they loss of that team was a huge disappointment. And the woody. Laws wasn't like they lost a seven game series were dominated this perfectly honest judah. They were dominated in that series. The only game they won was janas plane. They know right. I mean come on bro. I mean that's a very interesting team. Milwaukee bussey bring up. Is there pressure is. We'll do that. Go to help this year though. It might help them out molester. I'd say russia was hired last year. Oh no it was okay. Great talk if this is your first time.

David cody sat down and talked to the shawn watson and tried to put his two cents into xiao wassels like growth. I'm not playing. I do not want to be david kosher. Backseat jack easterby.

Podcast i am joined by big was going down big low coming down and they start every every time i say your your your intro does make you feel so bad that your your voice so beat man i just. I can't compete. I just can't compete in all the way across from me phenomena. One chris how you doing brother. Hey you brought angie. I gotta give these if you bring energy.

You can also check us out on afro vibes. Tv as well go ahead and download the roku tv. Check us out. We do some some good things there as well on a website as well new channel sports net this new channels any a ann. L. dot net right. Sports awesome sports new channel. Sports dot. net's so let's get right into it. Let's get into some headlines. It's time all air. So ben rothlisberger big. Ben looks like he's going to be a pittsburgh steeler for one more year he actually reduced his from nineteen meal to fourteen to get that one more year in pittsburgh. I don't know man and i don't know an open. Desert should move off from mirror now. But what are the options. Really have but big ben's going to be there for one more year. What you guys think about. Big ben in pittsburgh i've always liked be banned. And here's my gripe i. It's a it's a love hate relationship because i i feel i feel. He kind of does himself into service. Because every other quarterback puts in work to you know to to be healthy looked apart and terms with physique. You know to take the game seriously. The have that longevity. I'm a look at tom. Brady drew brees in a look at these other guys right and he just kinda looks like you just had a couple of beers gets up gets. I don't feel it's just like with all the injuries that you're having clearly you know there's issues with and weight and things like that you know but with all that being said he still had a really productive year last year. I'll just looking at the thirty touchdown. Attendance such ratio which is really good after coming off that showed that elbow surgery is i mean he. He tore every tendon or three ten elbow. Things story The throwing elbow So for me. I'd like to see him have a long career. I think he's got some more time with him but if he will take care of themselves physically He can play. You know to forty two forty three. He could do that. he's not going to do that. Time to move on. We saw where that offense wasn't a dynamic last year because you know he can throw and once again it's coming off injury but I'm i'm glad he's coming back with the issue. Was that massive cap hit. You're talking about i if i'm not mistaken. Forty million forty nine million dollars cap hit that stupid going to have the need to reduce that about fifty million dollars. So he's coming back and he'll be here for two twenty one. So i i am happy that he's back as your question. It's for For them to move on. they've gotta bring gager. I believe that one hundred and ten percents. All right ain't any Appease an actress no problem as anything. Big member okay. Who was cam. You have a whole bunch of things to say. That's not start. That's why we would say bro sees you a vitamin to talk. We could move on all right next topic on a headline less miles Lsu internal investigation found less miles had appropriate behavior with female workers in two thousand thirteen. There's a lot of key. Say she say as far as it's concerned we have some workers saying that less mouse kissed them. That's mouths denying that. He kissed anybody of the female saying that he met up with them. And you know you try to contact them. Facebook and text message just a whole bunch of things going on i. What would you guys say about his name bro. I mean it's really not so so it's allegedly right. But he did. He met up with female students at the university and alleged parties. He did some things. He shouldn't have done within. That throws me off is his excuse. His excuse was well. How's mentoring female students bro. You are a coach at an end. Z aa teams division. one football. You need to be answered the fellas your your teammates. I mean you teammate. You your players so his excuse tells you all you need to know. He was doing something wrong bra. I'm i'm which on this you know. He's he's worried about that. You know that the young college tail earn around there supposedly spending top now. He should be put in that time like she said with the players right You know and when your coaches and all that but they make it upper. That didn't make that they can make those Those allegations of that so You know you. In kansas right now. Hopefully you're not doing the same thing but phone sticks ninety allowed. He's not allow getting his band. He's been asked damn shame. It's very similar to our member. Bobbie portray no phrase duty obstinate on his motorcycle. Women who is not his wife This is the whole bad. Look this smells. Something smells like that. It's it's not a good look next. Top of discussion the nba. All star games going to be more seven. We have team. Lebron going up against team durant. They had to draft Wednesday where janas onto the kupa was the first pick in the draft. But let me go over. Two teams rotate. Lebron team is stars. Jaanus steph curry luka doncic jokic and of course lebron james with the reserves being dame willard ben simmons chris paul jaylen brown paul george sa- bonus and who'd eagle bear then on kevin durant side of course is going to pick up his teammate. Kyrie irving joel embiid. Quite leonard bradley. Beal jason tatum. That'd be the starters there for team durant down the bench. Got james harden best. James harden a bench. My boy devon booker science. Williamson zach levine. Julius randle giusiano silently having one of one incredible season actually by the way Donovan mitchell and the center from the orlando nikola. So bad not bad. It's pretty pretty evenly matched. i think the bench for durant's team might be slightly better. That james harden there so you guys will be tuned into the all star game this sunday. Maybe maybe not. No sunday you milady time and so the problem will be watching all all-star right in probably cuss milot's pro. How about you. Chris from we love me. I'm like i'll find something else to do. I'll watch a little bit. You know if this competitive. I'll wash but they've already told us that they don't want to be there. So there's really not a lot of incentive to watch. I might to in here and there to see what's going on. I might tune in. It seems like this year is as well. I am what year was. But i think a couple of years ago. They're playing really really competitive. All-star game was really fun to watch. They are actually given their all I don't know that was last year reform house last year those last year that. Yeah yeah yeah. So they were all into their all showing some yuba county down on the basketball court. It was really fun to watch if they do that again this year and i might tune in. But who knows who knows. That's on the elam ending right right right that that made a dope as well. Yeah that is true. That is true all right so that is head lines channel sports guests presents. Ask reason i tried to go near the offshore. But i can't believe the or sean lynch the backfield gun guy. I can't believe the call all right. So what you just heard was the ending of super bowl. Forty nine between the seattle seahawks and new england patriots. Russell wilson threw an interception indian-zone to malcolm butler which would give newington to win. The england's have so many close games like that so many close winds. Ira watching that game ended at the two things you that really stand out is the expressions onto those faces. Right are their emotions tom. Brady's gentleman air he's ecstatic. He knows that they've just one. And then you see. Richard sherman the look on his face. He cry like it was highly disappointing. I'm pretty sure. Russell wilson steal things about that game to his the everybody on. Seal team pick peak aero unless issues probably still calling russell. Wilson's they should have handed me off the hammer that was. That was a very very interesting call. I i'll never forget it. I won't. I'll never forget that point. Can you imagine being a seattle. Almost supersonic seattle seahawk fan. Can you imagine watching that. Be latian because we gotta take a bag. One play right you guys remember that your main curse tach bra that was probably one of the biggest patches in super bowl history. It was amazing. Bobbling that bobbling then catching it was just an amazing play. It would have been the play of the super bowl in my one of the greatest plays for the super bowl but we will never ever see that replay because of what happened. They didn't run the ball. Run the ball if other one yard live. Run the ball. I don't know what they were thinking. Big i really really pretty they you and for me. What sums it up is night. Even richard sherman's face is russell wilson when he kinda claps his hands after ms the play like shoot. I'll get mixed blood like no play over. There is no next play is done. It's over with snow That's what stands out to me and then also the ability while what's seemed like the seahawks having a chance to have a dynasty right because if you win the super bowl that student superbos not just one super bowl and the fact that they lost it in that manner and they never got back because they're looking to go back to back right noting that gone back to that point other than the patriots so that made it even worse and they really dominated that game they should. It should have been one earlier so it was an amazing amazing super bowl. But there's the biggest letdown. I think i've ever seen in my life. If i were a seattle seahawk fan about about this for years. I don't know what's worse. The falcons thinking you one when you're up twenty eight three or being on the one yard line have the most dominant yard rusher game and not giving him the ball. I really don't know what's worse bro. Up a own net and had to go back and watch that that final drive. You gotta remember. I started off with a big o. Catch from marshawn lynch on the wheel and cash budget marinko curse us talking about and the answer that drive at what the two minute warning so it was perfect. You run out the clock. You leave new england without a chance to come back and win that game. And i'm going back and i'm watching it. I remember it. I'll house angry because marshawn had a monster game and then after reception you just watch. Pete carroll flap his gums and chewing gum. I'm like bra. You you lost this one russ yeah russ could have changed the play at the at the you know at at at the golan whatnot man. But this was the coaches fault. I'm not blaming us for that. I'm not because that was a good drive. Pinpoint throws and i'm tired of. That's now four. That's four super bowls. That new england has one awesome. Bs you got three awesome field goals. He got this right here that was handed to them. Because you talk about Tom brady's face when he celebrating well his face when they were posting their golan. Saying oh crap. We're going to lose his game so yeah peak. Caraman you handed handed tom brady. That's who and instead the talk mosul number seven which you've been talking about super bowl number eight sorry super bowl number six that he just one. I mean you could say that about a couple of games ali. Truly that he doesn't mention the atlanta falcon game and you know is very similar because julio jones had one of the more incredible catches i've ever seen in my life down the sidelines. And that's the catcher. I thought oh this is for you. Were thought that the game was over right after that sort but atlanta found a way to to mess it up. So that's a very good which one is worse is seattle on that one yard line or atlanta blowing at twenty eight to three lead. I i still don't know atlanta's worse. Think so no. That was worse because you had the patriots where you could have demoralized them and taking them out the game you're about twenty eight points and the fact that they mounted the largest comeback in super bowl history to come back and win that game in the fascinated. incomplete domination. it was it was. It was two different halves right. Yes seattle very disappointing. However that the game was still in reach you know for new england but atlanta l. a colossal failure right. I think it was the seattle. And i'll tell you why any houston texans and watch the texans. This season saw them lose. Two games on the goal line has lost two games on the golan was regular season and was distraught. I cannot imagine what would happen if the texans laws or anything. I'm rooting for the seahawks. In this case loss on the one yard line and the super bowl are you need is one yard. You're right there in. It didn't run the ball. So i gotta go with that. Sea hawks game is it was it. was terrible. The falcons and you saw it coming. It was like a bad movie right. So you see the movie starring up like oh this is this is going bad for the seahawks gonna prompt abrupt end. Everybody got shot. Everybody go see hawks. i wanna go with atlanta. Because even with the seahawks they were just coming off a championship right. They got that champa under bill right. They're feeling good with themselves. They're going into it and then it has nothing to them. Are they got the job ward is that they gave the big lead it's history eighty know-how atlanta atlanta's one earth rubio and they got blown out So i mean. I think i think was worse that i really really think but just because seattle won the previous year. They were actually got a chip. So but that was flashback. We went back to with that. Two thousand fifteen. Maybe two thousand fifteen or two thousand fourteen. I believe that game was played in phoenix super bowl. Forty now yells to them fifteen. Who took a team. But speaking of russell wilson russell wilson and the shaun watson to illeg quarterbacks right now in the nfl both quarterbacks seemingly one out the shell was made that abundantly clear he wants out. Russell wilson has given the seattle seahawks fourteen. He will go to. they decided traded. But you know he's got asthma trade but if you do do these fourteen. I want to go so i wanna ask you guys. I guess when and where were these two trade at if there will be traded right so let's I will tell you for rust. To be traded wins should be never. Don't trade him if you see hawks but based on what we have seen. There's a good chance it could happen. And it is going to happen. The win for both quarterbacks what. I'm sticking restaurant now. It's gotta be before the draft because that's when you get the most assets you're probably get more picks in your nowhere. You're picking ones rest. Goes to with zine they could have project to be a third big but once he gets there they could be a playoff team and all of a sudden A number four pictures number twenty six overall pick much less desirable right. So i'd say when before the draft and wear a million low. We we talked about this a little bit on opera vibe stevie on our new china sports show but odds beirut low. I'm gonna make you happy. Broke you right if it is. Where'd you go from dallas. The dallas cowboys. I think if he is moved he's going to dallas now. Think about this. Make a real good guy. Russell wilson ease the star right. You had sierra white. She's a star. And then you have the star on the helmet breath in dallas. I'll tell you a right now. I'm already off the texan bandwagon. Not a texas fan at that point. I'm rocking cowboys gear. Kabwe is done at that point so right. Now you're saying russell wilson going to go to dallas. That's his destination. If he's moving if he is moving he's going to douse so all three stars align. I liked that i liked that. They're like that man In my honest opinion roseanne going and only reason. I think this is happening. Right now is because sierras like i'm tired of seattle. I'm tired of the. I'm tired of the rain. I'm tired of the clouds. And i wanted to be closer to home. I want to move back south. And there's no market here. And i can't fill out. I can't sell out stadiums here my concerts. I can't do that in dallas. I can do that and chicago can probably do that and nevada i condemn. Show do that so so. She's ready to go. I don't think he's going anywhere. I think he's gonna stay there. I think they're gonna put into good team around him. Put some office alignment around him And continue to win games because it just doesn't make sense to be you know thirty one of thirty two year old quarterback who is consistently in the playoffs or were you know And they're just a couple of steps away a couple of players away so i don't see that happening if one. Yeah just like you said. And he's happened before he's having before the draft. If it were to go anywhere you know. I mean dallas be a good destination. But it'll be tough because you know dak would have to agree to a contract with seattle. He can't agree with one dallas already. You know before that happens and all the other intricacies of that entire situation so that but that that'd be a dream scenario obviously but i see him sitting pat. I mean he's russell. Wilson is seattle seahawks organization. But just doesn't make sense from. I agree with you. Ward fourteen to raiders the bears cowboys and the saints writing and the same. Yeah those were afford places that he said he would go. But it's interesting. You guys bring airtime. It's safe sierras name. I just think about her during a super bowl. Did you see that clip. Where he's talking to. Roger goodell and russell wasn't as like he does not want to be there. He's always saying that you were saying right now. You know. I can't tell me takes over here. I wish guys to see now. Is this look like russell. Wilson was so uncomfortable being there with sierra. But i don't think he's not going anywhere. I really don't think seattle is going to find a way to i guess mend duration between him and p carol. Because what i've been hearing is that he wants to pass the ball more. He wants to be more open. And pete care still wants to have like a. He wants more than he did last night. That's what i'm that's where. I'm confused a little bit. That's why you can hit so damn much. I don't know man. I i really must pass more. He just wants more control an it. Okay okay. which means he's going to pass war right. You gotta realize passing. Moore's fine but also scheme you're running it lasts schottenheimer. I it's just it's a. It's a running based schemes even when they open it up. It's all russ you know when you watch mahomes you see him. Make some blazer like these are just easy passes either easy place to make. An arrest is not easy play. He's running for his life. He just went to scheme. Where live with a little easier for anything. He wants to do that at the helm like he wants to be. The one call in the places the line well. We'll talk about. He's already doing right. I don't is really hard to really evaluate this. Because i really don't know what exactly is going on honestly and truly you. We all say that. Maybe he doesn't have as much control as we think he has. But do early know that. I don't know I thought effort because he's not gained counter protection that he wants his office of line because to be truly out of the seattle nearly had a really good office of line since I guess marshawn lynch left air right through right so they've kind of you know. Spend our money on him. Because he's on a big contract and so we're able to get off his atlanta. He wanted to. I'm chris kind of lose some of that in his takedown when he's talking about quarterbacks as they get paid they don't really have enough tools around him to continue to go to play offs. I mean to super bowls and things of that nature so it's really hard to evaluate. I don't know. I really don't know what happened here. But we used win. In the where i think. He's never he goes seattle. Seattle is not gonna do anything. They're going to be like a man we we. We have always their options. Were going to ask what you russell. I don't know if he's going to push more as far as wanting to be traded and be like no. I do wanna go somewhere i do want to be traded. I don't know why he wanted to go to the bears. Though i don't notice that the and truly but say's who knows who knows so the watson he's on the other end of the spectrum right when and where for me. I know where. I am almost eighty percent. Sure that he's going to go here. Because the only location to meet it makes sense for him and texans. They're not to trade him to the jacksonville jaguars they're not going to trade him within the division kind of similar to what j. what he wasn't gonna go and play somewhere within the division. I don't think they're going to trade him to the jets even though they have on the acid they want and they had a quarterback. There don't think they're gonna trade him. They're either the only destination. I can really think of that makes sense for me. Is the miami dolphins. That is the win destination. Where i think the shawn watson will go now at this point. They're saying that. You know neko stereo and takes are not taking any calls but dating. Start getting cost okay. 'cause i don't know when my right now i'm thinking if they are as stubborn as i think they are. They're not gonna make a move to after the draft. That's the win for me. But they should be. They should have been just once david. Kelly sat down and talked to the shawn watson and tried to put his two cents in and the xiao watson was like bro. I'm not playing for you. I do not want to be here. David kosher went back to jack. Easterby to to count mcnair nick stereo a and resigned and adequate david. He waited thirty years to to get a head. Coaching another thirty nine go do trust ego. He would've loved the show. Be there but he's been overlooked so he's probably surprised when he got heckled up. What the so. He wasn't going to give that up. he's in. He was a broom. now as a quarterback. He's gonna be a head coach but after all that he should've went to them be like man. We got trade him and try to get some acids for him. Because the only reason the texans right now would not trade. The xiao watson is because of a grudge their inner feelings to like. Oh you pay us. You can go pay for nobody. That's basically what they'll be doing if they're smart because right now. The iron is hot honestly and truly ather everything during the season. Who knows what's going to happen. Who knows a quarterbacks are going to emerge gonna be drafted. They're going to be with their new teams and is not going to be as many teams out there looking for shots into probably the next season i would i would. I would hate it for the texans to waste a year because of a grudge. yeah remain. The logical thing to do would be so to answer the question. The win would be before the draft. The wear would be to any team that offers you the best assets but what team is actress. Gimme a team matter. It doesn't matter if you can get a quarterback got check out my my my it to texas plus call i gave you. I'd go check that out on youtube. Check that out for me. It's is no texans. Aren't rational so. I'm not going to give them. I'm not gonna even think about it. Rationally the answer to the win is never because they're not going to trade him. That's my this boy. They're not rational. They're going to hold onto him as long as they want to hold onto him because he is the player. A gordon nichols area and the where is he's going to be houston texas for as long as it's accents. Decide they want to hold onto him. When the texans games knicks cereal all we heard was that he is a competent in smart. Gm so far. He's been tough smart and dependable guy and beer texans fan. You know exactly what that means. He's been anything but he hasn't done anything to assure us. That being the number one guy from the patriots means he's a good gm. He's been absolutely nothing but to a job and made it worse to a job and made it worse. I do not see the texans trading him anytime soon and if they do. I have no competence. If they're going to do it right they may get a second round pick in the third round pick. And maybe i if if they ask for but i i could see them just traded him to. I can't even see him. Trade him to the bears right and maybe getting one first round pick and take them back your bisky something stupid. That would be a travesty. Chris well. I'm just telling my point is they're not rational so i will no longer approach the team right so they're not my thing there. The team as being rational man. Bro out be a damn travesty. I'm chris i don't i don't know i don't think they're going to trade him. Which would be really really dumb dumb as hell if they don't. I mean the iron is hot. There teams out there that have young talented. They can unload the have draft picks. Miami's much choice. My brought this up on new channels sports at a afro vibes. Our show that comes on on on sundays. I said i would like to see the shawn watson with the washington football team. That will be lethal. That'd be lethal. that'd be crazy when you're talking about a come up for the football team and organization that's been hasn't been what they're not a who's worse you know the watched football team or he's tested as far as the way they run organization but at least they have a competent coach right that of course rivera out there. Who's a competent coach. He's a coach. And he's bringing structure and orders that organization. All the team needs a quarterback you know and then i don't know what their caps situation look like but there's a trade that there's trae scenarios where you can load one of your eleven first round draft picks that play at the same time on the fantastic defensive line at they have. You will load one of those players. You load a i you know. Two first round draft picks shawn watson. They can do that because their quarterback away with a couple of receivers in us a really talented football team. Now i i can see When it has to happen as with you know russ it has to happen before the draft. You know because there's plenty once again as you know some good quarterbacks towns of quarterbacks and some other next couple of one or two cornerstone cornerbacks drafting. That can really help football team but the texans. They're just they're being headstrong. They don't wanna be bullied all this show. They don't wanna show weakness. They've messed up. they're trying to clean up. You know from what Bill o'brien The the mess that bill o'brien caused But they're messing things up even more you know so. I don't know i don't know what's going to happen. But my hope is that they end up trading him anywhere but the new york jets. The you're just have plenty of assets but you know you're going to probably the worst run organization out of all thirty two football teams and the lowest point real quick of quick things one. You talk about salary cap. One interesting thing about the shining. He's still under his rookie. Deal signed that big contract underneath fifth year so far gave him on. The team is going to be easy. As far salary caps sir and then to the second point he also has a note drake so danes. I mean any situation better than the in houston. I'm weeping with that lady traded to washington washington football team. I my command feeds. All that is. I like bob good. Yeah i don't think the shawn watson is going to go to washington. I think i think wants to the takes. He was a football team. Like nope gotta go. They're going to do it. But i would think about it is. I think he would okay. A trade to the two jets. I think that's wanna teams that he's okay with and they're not a much better situation than to washington football team or the texans right in terms of talent. Yes so it's gonna be very very interesting to see how this thing goes down People always talking about who has a leverage is the texans or is it the shower watson and. I really don't know how to to to really figure out who has liberty. It's the texas really. Wanna play a grudge match. Where here like. They really won't get their feelings. Of course they had to leverage because he's under contract they can keep the xiao watson four. What three years really and truly what doing a damn thing. But that's gonna be a bad look on that organization it would be and then the sean is gonna if south this year from minicamps train caps to preseason and then throughout the season the shah's losing twenty twenty one million dollars doesn't care about that he's basis eight of the care about that but he wouldn't he wouldn't lose all that he'd lose about three to four million dollars because his contract still guaranteed right. So he's going to get paid. They if they want to go super super patty which no team has ever done and go after the contract money which. I don't see then they could do that then. That would be newgen though situation. They did anything of that nature. I've been nfl would have step it and if a black now have you heard that story this taking a little left i gotta have. You heard the story. That sage rosenfels the rosen copier told about cow mcnair. No i haven't heard o- rosenfels talk about an he. He speak into david. Carr texans i quarterback and david cars only store. He told him about comic neri's he went inside cowed. Mcnair office in kabul was sitting on the floor. This is years ago playing video games. That's our owner. A guy who is in a building in a management role sitting on the floor probably indian style. I guess you can't say that. No more across his legs cross playing video games. But the will you say though i could definitely see like guess what about. I could definitely see of doing that. So what you're saying to tell me that the houston texas running our organization where you would if you you're playing madden twenty twenty one. He was probably. that's probably what he was playing too. So that means you turn off the salary cap so you can sign every put that you won't to a plan on man you you probably on on a rookie year. You go man. But i mean if the texans do decide to be as petty as possible is not going to be a good for them. They have to figure out a way to unleash. The shawn watson because at the end today what is going to do is this is going to affect your organization to were other players by later. This they're going to do this. Show watson where they're gonna do to me you know what i'm saying just wasn't has the back of the players. I'm a hundred percent. Sure about that so they got they got. The guys are being paid to let it. Go take the one other ill that they'd been taking so far in this ad this one to the elle's and try to rebuild from there. The good news is this is the last l. They have to take more else guys. Texas go find a way. This is the last one they will find a way. We we had a podcast. I can remember what pockets it was but it will be in chris. We were debating. What shall we should do at in that whole debate. We never said anything about the xiao watson just demand a trade and this is something that we we couldn't even phantom so now did this out and this is this is part of the reason ruben goat. So our next topic of discussion going to be the loyalty again. This is the third time we're talking about this but this goes to that discussion. So let's are we done with this. Could we just move onto that now. I'm i'm done. I mean 'cause that's that's where i'm going right now As far as team loyalty. And when is it okay to move on. When is it okay to change team loyalty one of our other co host. Here trae was free agent at one time. He was a fan free agent at one time a long long time ago when the cowboys were pissing him off he knew he wasn't gonna goanywhere but he decided he won't be a fan create and he told me that he was writing letters to other teams. Turn them the he's available he's available. Be a fan for that team. The texans have jd. Me so bad i do. You wanna be a fan of any team. At first i was chris. I was like wherever it is. Sean goes data. Wrangler go now anymore. Now this is oh and if you listen to podcasts. You're say oh. This is totally different than what you said before. Because before i described as a marriage whatever team for till death do you part. You're going to have to ride with that team to the sun comes down k the texas kilby. I am dead as far as fat is concerned. I am numb like narrow. This numbness key. The andre hopkins is traded for a pack of pena's basically okay. Jj watt is gone. Puri news when me gone anyway. Like with everything going on with the houston. Texans delays glimmer of hope. That i had was that the shawn watson right and it's not even about because there are some houston texas fans that i've talked to that. Hate my gus right now. Oh you'll you fan. Because the show was his there. You should be a houston fan like you said until death. Do you park but mattress about that. It's about you lost a franchise quarterback. How does that these. I cannot ride would a team. That has fumbled so hard. You can do whatever you want to. I've written with the oilers. The gave of the biggest lead in playoff history to the buffalo bills k. I was hurt. My heart was bleeding. But i still to this day. Rep the houston oilers the way the travesty that the houston texas have done to me and my family. Even though my wife's a cow is still a factor a little bit to me and my family is just too much. I can't do it anymore or no. I can't not do it anymore. i can't. I can't even ride on her team right now. I'm so hurt by this. And i'm still hurt. I didn't think i was hurt us. But i said i was numb but still there is coming out slowly as i'm talking right now but i'm done. I'm i'm officially officially resigning retiring alla alla hope. Let let as paul's that's balls before you make the statement okay. It's it's it's going to be on record. It's going to be a record short when you want to make this announcement right now. Are you absolutely positively. Sure i've been decided about this months ago. Shawn watson right now. You're david kelly. I do not want to be a i. Just i just i cannot do it anymore i just can't you did houston texas can do all this stuff. Go on to win. Ten through bows neuro right back. I'll be luke. Come masilo this is it i can. I cannot do it anymore. I i know i notice the difference story from from the last time we talked about team loyalty and i know i talked about till death do. Us part is like a marriage. I said that i did. I was there when. I say that i know what i said because i was there but i can't do it and it's about the way this whole thing has gone down. You know what. I'll i do want that lives in the city and of watch this team. Come from a place where there were there. Were little known to get to a place where they're able to attract or build their own stars really. You know the stars at the houston. Texas have had you know they they. They raised them right. They drafted these players and see how bad it battling that they've treated these players and Is is terrible so understand especially what's happened over the last year year. And a half starting with deandre hopkins because to think that this team was very close to go into a super bowl to see where the state of this franchise is. Now when you're your you're you're you're pillars. The pillars of your organization are now either gone or about to be gone. I i feel for the fans of the city. So is it okay to change loyalty when the houston. Texans fumbled the bag as they have. It's not that they haven't drafted players players hadn't panned out Or the no one wants to come and play for the houston texans. That's it's it's not that the organization to this the organization did this to the players door organization is turning the knife in the hearts of the fans organizations doing this. So when the organization fee Fails you that. Means the team is failing you. So what choice did the fans have. You know one of the things that drives and bring them up. I was trying to go the whole. Podcast bringing them up. But america's team the dallas cowboys. One of the things that keeps fans there. We're suckers why because of wash cowboys games off. Seen them teeter on the brink of wins only to lose and the most colossal of ways right now have memories memories of pain right. You know the the the the the build up the anticipation of oh. This is going to be our time only for it not to be time. And what of the dallas cowboys have. What have they done. They've teetered and tottered in the confines of mediocrity no matter the the star players that have come no matter their production. They've teetered and tottered on the within the confines of mediocrity but we we live and die with those losses to where now for the first time last year. I'm going to admit this they were games. I missed were games. That i did not watch their games. I said you know what. I know that they lost. I don't care to watch this is happening. They're losing in such a fashion. I'm watch later. I'm just. I'm just turning off the. Tv was the one no matter how bad they're losing. I watched from beginning to end sunshine. Exactly where you're coming from you know. But that's that's things that are going on on on the field right but the organization of the houston texans is failing the fans. So i think when organization is is We're not doing the things that they need to do to make the fans happy because no matter what. And that's one of the dallas cowboys. It doesn't whether the product on the field is crap whether it's mediocre and they're not winning. They're still doing things to keep people like me in engaged. You know what we're gonna we're still going to entertain you. We're probably going probably going to lose more. We're losing an entertaining fashion right But i think. I think the houston texans situation is an exception perfect perfect perfect way to to word it. Because that's how i feel. I feel like i should take a pass on this one. Even after some of the comments. I said on the last time we had discussed this topic because it is unprecedented. The things that are happening with this organization and christmas. Christmas is a couple of times. This is gonna be at thirty for thirty on this. Houston texas team sewer. Probably then later. And it's going to elaborate on all of this function within the organization and the people that say to gonna be houston texans spans. Two they die. They're going to look at his documentary. Be like dow. Does the team that. I was riding with once. They see all of the things that's going on inside and out because i'm telling many something going on in their bro it starts reject it really does. There's something going on that starts with jack. Easterby that makes the situation there with the houston. Texans not normal whatsoever k. I mean i agree. The is not normal. It is what it is easy to hear me say much because i've been a fan of longtime. I've been rocking that team for a long time. I they get their act right. I'll be back but for now When it comes to the houston texans. I'm not a fan of the organization and you know the interesting thing is if you look across the street. I guess. Look for that but when you look at the houston rockets. The houston rockets have lost thirteen. Straight games the houston rockets. Just lost their superstar in james harden. But i am a fan of the houston rockets because that organization is competent right. They traded james harden way he demanded a trade in. Let it fester wednesay. He made his once. He made his big hoopla. Let him go. I guess massachusetts back may have another good blaring christian. Would the point is the organization is competent enough to realize when something is over and to try to move for right. The texans don't even realize what they're doing is wrong right. Jack easter being comic near thing there in the right. They think everybody else somehow. They're the smart people in the room. A and then be everybody else wrong and what they're doing is right and they're going to show us that they're right and when that's the case it's a me it's not even just hypocrisy with the fans is just foolishness. You have an organization that is run by somebody who's appearance would be foolish right and you have his right hand man who is a. What is the minister. I don't know what he is. A chaplain knows nothing about football. But you had them in there. He's whispering sweet things in his ear. I don't know what they're doing right now. There's some type of sexual relationship going on there. Something that's going down there. It just doesn't make any sense. Makes no sense at all. The shawn watson or jack easterby. Jj watt reject easterby. I mean really just as simple to a certain degree if you are owner of a football team and you value your franchise quarterback and you think that he is important to the football team as everybody else. Does you are going to make this. You're going to be a you want to get rid of j. Because he's gone okay. We can build a team around you. They don't need. What is jack. Easterby role there. I have yet to know what his particular role with the houston. Texas this telling you what did he do there. I i don't know. But i'm telling if we find out in a thirty for thirty bills sexual relationship going on that will make sense. Y'all please appeals. That were anywhere. Cringe easy that words sexual waste pronouncing settle. Same that on purpose. Because i of going off i don. I pray i pray. That's not it because you talk about foolishness. Even though i have declared myself not a houston fan on his radio on this. Podcast people like ito trait. Oh you're you're that sexual stuff because they're going to pull that on me. They're definitely but no even though even though we're laughing this is we really think that there's something something weird is going on over there take some To be claims to be a minister. Well i'm declaring today. I'm praying for all the people that he's praying over and hopefully he's not a leader seriously. I hope he's not the leader of an organization because those people if they if you look at a multi billion dollar franchise this man is doing is leading them astray. What do you think he's doing a yo life. You understand me all you. People who go to jack easterby church his his his congregation. If you're listening right now. I'm ministering y'all right now i don't need to run your needs to run. Whatever god he's praising is not the one that's leading victory is not because he's leading this team to failures. What is what is. This team has failed already. You understand me. So but here's the problem though. This team also does not or or this this This management team. Your team does not care about the fans. It does not the fact that all of your star players are disgruntled are there. They have left. Where's the marketability in this. In this team you don't you fans of fans because of players memorable moments and all you're doing is you're destroying the the The the positive moments right. You're you're sticking the knife in those positive you're popping balloons and all of those positive moments that these fans of had for these players for. Jj watt the. The heart beat of this city has said i'm done i'm out right. Why not learn from the houston rockets. And chris. you're absolutely right the houston rockets are competently run organization to ownerships. Right are running this team. The way it should be run did not waste time. With james harden who's arguably number two when it comes to the heartbeat of the city who was a bigger star worldwide. James harden was a jj watt. You could probably even say james harden and the fact that they let that caliber of player go with that type of superstar. -bility right did they say you know what we're gonna do what we're going to go right. They allowed them to go. So the fact that the houston texas can't go go. Sit with tillman for tita going. Sit down and say hey. How do run an business because clearly the same does not understand how to run a business. Right tumor for to successfully runs a restaurant and casino. You know you know what i'm saying base here in houston. Go learn from learn from the problem. Let me say something. Look the problem. Is you're getting upset right now. Me me me. Oh we've i'm not even a fan. I'm not even. I'm a dallas cowboys fan but seeing this and seeing is the city suffer seeing what this organization's doing to the pleasant tooth of the fans. I it is yes. I'm upset because it's stupid in has been there. I've been there. I'm over from the standpoint of we're talking to a guy that runs essentially a billion dollar organization at the texans and he's proven to be incompetent and he's not firing himself so as a fan. I'm out is really just as liberals are out so i my anger with that organization over at this point. I'm just ready to hear what's going on so this one. I'm just waiting for the expose. I don't really care what they do next season or actor that i just i'm waiting for the expose. Once it comes out. I wanna see what's really going on is gonna be must see tv big facts. I'm gonna be all over that i wanna. I wanna see exactly what was going on behind the scenes. I mean who would have thought you know. After we blew to lead against kansas city. There will be here right now. We all we all want it bill. O'brien gone we thought that was it. We thought that that was the core of everything once bill. O'brien was fired. We thought okay here. We go remember too little thing that that J. j. watt put out on instagram. The sun coming in to to rely stadium. That's what we all thought. We thought the bill was okay. Now we'll get to see some sunshine. Callum mcnair jackie close at the right back. Sorry i had to do it. He goes that this day right back up and dark dark as hill man. I'm just low. Me and chris are like. We're we've been here before. I mean chris has been here longtime long long time. But i really honestly thought that there will be some good coming out of the firing a bill.

That soccer is the best sport in the world. That's offers the best sport in the world. And Has. The. Best events in the world. But personally I feel like. As a soccer player I. Enjoy watching basketball more than soccer. Your. What constitutes. A sport being the best. How. The just just by watching it just keeping me entertained like. Twenty four seven or just the whole time that I'm watching a game, it has to keep intrigued right so soccer's do that for you. It does, but I feel like I found myself more intrigued watching basketball lately. So sometimes you're slows down depending on the league's you know it just. Some Games are known for just I don't know like, European Leagues are known for just picking it up so fast. Leagues like I, Dunno here. Throw MLS. Out, of the whole equation. got a terrible if it does it does. I. Know I regret. Soccer myself but I've watched the mill Imola Games and. To. Boring most of the time, but you know has this moment. So I have a truth question you gotta there you're, GonNa ask. I. Got One. We have to know where we're at. Is it true. that. The cowboys are the best. NFL NFO. This was like, no. Question. Welcome to the Pike. All right. So that would that was true or their at. Let's get right into it. All right. So we're going to do. Recording this on August twenty fourth, which is mom -Oday Kobe Bryant Day. Yesterday. Was Kobe Bryant's birthday So what we're going to do to remember Kobe Bryant is we're going to you know talk about his five top plays of all time is going to be a new channel sports. We're doing this again. Yeah Man, this is the TAP. Presented five. Channels podcasts. We can do. But look, we can do it. We gotta get it right. This is so many plays Kobe. Is it really like a definite number one to five? You think there's a different. Certain things are better not be looked up. From Allie. Oh No don't do that. Don't do it. I. Can't do it? Going to do I guess I can who can out You'RE GONNA, start off, Chris. You you start. Are you going to start? You can start with number number five okay. Okay. The the play I have is probably a play that most people don't remember Oh was one of the last games of the season, and maybe the very last game of the season, a game winner that he had over the Portland Trailblazers to lead the Lakers to the play offs, and that was important because the three point shot three points. Winning get. Basically, that shot won the division. Make. Sure. Come. Under. makes. Green. What we would talk about that. But for me growing up watching Kobe saw that shot, it was okay. This guy's unstoppable. That's when for me that's when it started turning from not so much. Levin. The guy so much to when he hit that. Ball he's a true. He's the truth yeah. Well. Number Four for me. I have a plethora of Kobe plays this going through in my head and Most of the plays that I. I WANNA per on this list are not really. Significant. It just shows his raw. Overall talent on the basketball court. So the player that comes to mind though. is when he dunked onto White Howard. Back in the day. He put his. Garden the White House face I mean he did this little crossover dribble past two people winter the whole and it's almost like the White was disrespectful. Tongue. Yes and I wasn't even. Very into basketball at that moment I still know that just because he was so disrespectful you know but it was on the White Howard. But how many people do you know they have done? Him Away have a history. A real good history. Over the topic Josh. This is A. Very. Very. Good. But but watching that dunk and him going to the lane almost like the White was kind of just I don't know what he was doing. He was like, Oh you know about a duck Oh, you just don't go me so bad to me that. That a for me. That's one of the plays I remember from Kobe and most of the plays had my head or just his raw. Talent and his athleticism. That's what stands out for me. All right Allie was number three. Don't mess this up I. Can't think of just. One or two or three just because you know. I. Thought about the question like what are the top five or I'm just like Gosh she just needs a top hundred dollars, right? Right. But. I don't know I guess. I don't remember what your this was, but it was on Christmas against the Phoenix Suns News. Reverse dunk that. Know which player was against. I remember this because it was on Christmas and obviously. He's very well, you know and as a player doesn't even know that much about basketball ben like. That was just shocking to me. I was just like who can do this like who does this or can any other basketball? I think. Joe Joke you gotTA communicate until. The Senate they don't communicate the alone the. End. Bing about Kobe's reverse dunks. Know. Everybody has their patented play for Kobe. It was his reverse dunk because his he was always able to talk both of his legs. Close to his body was beautiful ask. Nobody did the reverse dunk quite like Kobe. So I like definitely three. On this podcast. Past best you stay on the PODCAST Number two. Number two basically we all known number. One is I. Think I just didn't know where you number one number two, Burmese. In number five might change and opinion of Kobe. This game was the first time. I ever rooted for Koby Against the Phoenix Suns in the play. Offs Man. That's shot he hit, and then when he grabbed his jersey, right, hold it across his body. That's exactly iconic iconic play that has to be on this list would be. Just. Say. Shot. Seconds. It. was really the importance of series going up three one we all know the end up losing it. Is Tim Thomas Dig all the sounds were better team. That was the point few moments where Kobe was an underdog in his right and he showed up, they lost the series but he showed up man. Yeah. Wow number one number one. Number one for me is not going to be a particular. Play is just GonNa be the moment? His his his last game. Where he scored sixty. And to go out Mamba out drops the MIC. I mean, it gives me goosebumps even this thinking about it. You know when you wash that game. And you're like Oh, this is Kobe's last game is going on. After the game is over, you're like, yeah, this house was go out but at the game started, you're like you didn't really know I mean even as the game is going on easy to crowd you see celebrities in the crowd like an all Jay z wasn't all he was like, what am I seeing here and that was the same way it was like, wow, colby are you sure you want to retire I mean this is what you got lifted. Thank Yup and I mean it was just His farewell of all time of all time no has occurred like that and it's not it's like watching a movie. Like is a movie GonNa live to the hype. Is it gonna live to expectations and that movie Kobe's last game definitely up to all the hype. I can't believe twenty years when Bob this is crazy. This is absolutely crazy. Here. Gosh. My Team as Muhammad. and. Appreciate all this. That we've been on, you know we've been through ups and downs. And I think the most important part is that we all stayed together for raw. I grew up, I grew up with. I mean a die. Hard Fan. I. Everything about every player that's overplayed here so to be drafted. Then traded his Organization for twenty years here I mean you can't. You can't raise them better than it's. More. Probable. Proud of the fact that. That about the championships for about the down years because we didn't run. Rerun, we played all that stuff we got on championships. And we did it the right way. All I can do here is thank you guys. Thank you guys follow US support. Gospel all the motivation. Thank you for all the inspiration. Was Funny. Thing that had me cracking up all night long with the fact that I go through Twenty years of everybody's screaming pass on the last night they like don't pass it. Has Been Absolutely beautiful you got I can't believe has come to an end. Guys, will always be my heart. And sincerely sincerely appreciated. No words can describe how feel about you guys Thank. You thank you from the bottom of my heart. John Goes. Family. To my family, my wife and. I go to. Yondo. Thank you guys throwing your sacrifice you'll fall hours. I. Working and training, but that's a you hold it down the family, the way that you had. I can't. There's no way I can thank you enough for that. So we got from bottom of my heart. Thank you. What can I say? Had his numbers on the court. His family was Canessa all of his kids I mean. Thinking about it now fall, right I mean. You know the way how I see this game this last game combs. It's like. Even. If you're not into, you know soccer, you still watch the World Cup type thing. This game, it's like even if you don't watch basketball is just a must you have to tune in and watch this last game like that's how important it felt like it was. You're absolutely right. So finding. That last game I didn't watch it not because I didn't want to that point. I. Think I had some of the due in court the next day. So I had to go. Not. Watch the game but I remember I woke up thousand law school. That's what it was. I was in law school. We were going to court the next morning and I woke up in the morning and the Guy I guess my roommate is like, did you know Kobe scored sixty? I was hot This. But just watching that game particularly ethnic and you knew he was going to have a moment. Any did so that that that was dope we didn't put as far as moments that somebody's going to sneak it in was eighty one point. Bro It's on my list I. Listen to, but we had to get, and this is a new channel sports. Top Five I know you're probably different than. When he ducked Steve Nash. That's on my list also. Beautiful. Beautiful Beautiful. Dunk even though it's not. It's not conic moment and we've talked about this player a couple times this podcast to the alleyoop to Shaquille. O'Neal. Oh, that's definitely on my list and the him into the arms of shack. In this I cried the happened. You were blazer spell real. Blazers team. Look on paper. He back then that team was better than Lakers thing. But we talk about superstars. Riots he occasion. We'll talk about about. Later, on in this hot as well days rise to the occasion like you know what? Even though the team is better than us this team I'm than any person. With the Kings right? Oh. We cast better and that's and that's a weird thing about these dynasties. Will you go back and look at these dynasties that want to championships three temperatures in a row when you look at how they got there like how how beat team? It'll just a wheel of that superstar in Kobe Bryant is just The pure definition of that's all we have Mamba mentality. We always try to associate my mentality all these players. Now, he hasn't mob mentality that's what I mean. I Miss Kobe I really do and I didn't really you know the the effect that Kobe's hat on this world. After his passing. You didn't know how much he affected your life until after he passed. Thank. God and it's one of those things we have article up on our website I wrote about it. I hated him as a job right blazers fan kings when I say hey I, don't mean hate him personally because I don't know him personally hate the basketball player and ended his career fell in love with the basketball player and then at the end of his career, you fall in love with the man with the man. That's the most beautiful part about right and I WANNA Kinda say. As far as him being on his top five list. I. Did want to mention that he's top five as a as a farm. Yeah. The way he goes about taking care of his kids even with him Vanessa as a husband you know like you said, you're personally i. Personally, but from the outside looking in, it just seemed like he was after his basketball career he was okay I'm GonNa flip the switch and I'm all about the family right now and you're going to see that he was he showed the same metality with as a family man did he did on the court and I just I can't I can't tell you how much respect for that I really can't tell you how much restricted I guess. because. At the end of his career, he's the one guy you worried about saying because he invested so much basketball you kinda worried about him like He. Thrive as a normal person. The transition was fluid. Yeah. He set the blueprint of how to do it. Right. Lebron people lied to win wait who are retiring. Okay. That's how we got to do it. Right? It was. It was flawless and it was just it wasn't that it was. You know he had other stuff going on to as well. Yeah. He was definitely going to be a champion at also I. Mean You know What. Can I say? Okay say we're remembering Kobe today today's Mamba Day. And even though we only name five plays he has. A. tude A- plays that our icon eq plays that are always remember for so. In Kobe Bryant. All right. So. Let's talk some basketball. the NBA playoffs are in progress on the first game on talk. About is the Dallas Mavericks. And Los Angeles Clippers. Luca dodges is a grown as twenty one year old. With. Every time you see him play. You know it's like somebody whispers. You know he's only twenty one, right? Yeah he is. Like if he's Thing because out of everybody's mouth every time he impresses everybody he's only twenty one older superstars. He's Better Lebron with a twenty one. COME ON REAL Well. Yeah. You got to. Jordan was the twenty one. Bird. The twenty one adams debatable. He's on the same level Yeah Pino. Remember winning chips. Yeah. At twenty one. No. Remember. Because he came when he was rookie I mean came from high. School. Exact. So Jordan's not get comparison because Jordan was in college sold abroad. Okay Kobe Shack No. Yeah. The most dominant player. KRISTAPS. Here that you know kristaps is playing a little bit better in these places than I thought, he would Luca is demand. There's doing it I pick the clippers, win the series and five. Why? Because I didn't think the marriage close out games. But Lucas this a really oh, any he didn't ankles games. Let me show you something right home i. And he's closing out games for real for real. So I mean. Her that series a scary for the clippers that looks right now it the Dallas Mavericks Win that series. Everything out the window I don't know who's GonNa be a champion anymore because we were praising the clippers at one point is podcasts. Outside this podcast. Thank you. Feel like most people. I mean for me when I watch that watch, the series is focusing on Louvre second wouldn't get to the rest of it because play our P, we have you. Don't put. Don't put on. I'm calling play. s acid rain. You're GonNa, get what he wants. But as far as Lucas concerned what he did. In game four is reminiscent to willow branded against the Pistons his. His coming out party that that was just coming out party and the thing to things is really disappointing at least from the clippers and holding Luca is one they just haven't seen be able to stop him do anything because Luke only made I. think it was three or four free throws. Any scored forty three point. Normally you see hard pardon has forty plus points shooting by sixteen thorough that means Luca was hidden bills on you from two point line from the point line get into the basket. They had no answer for that dude and Allie have you seen anyone? In their say from ages twenty, two, twenty, four who played this guy Because we're comparing greats I just I haven't seen it only be compared to a great. That's true. Yeah. Because he's playing great basketball gym that's the bottom line. I mean look we talked about this previously he's been playing. We're grown men since he was a teenager so you can't throw anything at him that he has already seen before. Or you patch Beverley at me. Okay. Well I got hurt. Still though I don't think it'd be very well Paul George George Out Project Church. Quiet coup why was quiet me? Okay I got. To, hold that boy boarded. Yeah. 'CAUSE IF THEY WANNA. Make it to the second round the layoffs because look. Does is dangerous Jim they're dangerous as all hell if the clippers do not get their act together because I, still think the Cleveland. Still have I have not seen the clippers the best basketball you that's are. Tied to two. I still believe the clippers are the best team Italy, but they don't get their act together. Bro. The Dow's Marissa are gonNA knock him out the first round. PLO. So you call it changed. Call Okay. Going to win this series because I think look gain four has either be go one way I think it was. Game Five has go the one way I. Think the winner. The Clippers cannot let Dallas wingate five. That's why I say. 'cause then it's not just that Luke has arrived Luca right now things. Okay. I have a ride I'm giving a not notoriety throughout the league people. Ym, if you allow them to win game five things like you know what? Maybe. I can. We can win it all right now. 'cause. The Lakers are good. But. If they come out and beat the clippers. They they're in their heads they're going to believe we can win everything. Yeah. Because there's not there's not a team right now that anybody should be afraid of it was the clippers. If. You knocked them out then. WHO's to say? I'm. I had I had to five. Five, zero I by. Pacific thing I say they can't close game now look a idiot. Interesting though I will say this man. Paul. George. You know I'm a big Paul George Fan and you know this podcast talk positively about him but he's getting embarrassed right now and the problem is when you're not playing good, you can't name drop other people. He mentioned James Harden African. Talking about him he talks about having maybe a hurt shoulder the defense ain't that good will hoping. It's not good. It's even worse Bro. Man and the thing that makes Paul George Look so bad is. Limited already called him jump straight upsets you gotta stop aborting the grind. Now, it'd be hilarious Bro at Lillard had they get eliminated letters like? A child? He's a job because you you gotta be Betterman got to be better, and if you see the end of the game, you should watch the question when they ask why Linnet about the game winner for Luca he looks like he's just. Exasperate is bro I came here for Paul, George to hoop and he's not hoping he should never left. Toronto at this Oh that's only stadium. Have to run over this frontal ball. Draws going to stick around for for sure. They already took care to this. I have to do it playoff playoff right now I mean Paul George would always on himself as well because open up his mouth that's basically what it is. Yeah. Who, who, who, gave them the name play Opie. He gave himself when you give yourself a nickname work does not work. I used to call myself also normal no one knows. Because it did work out. But Didn't work out. So I mean. Then he what what comedy have before to comment. He name dropped James Harden. He also had a comment when when Damian Lillard hit the game when he shot, he's like Oh that was shot bookie hit broke. I mean. been hidden ever since. So I mean look. Paul George and they're really not been a fan of, Paul. George or Fanta Paul George but I do know this Paul, George is right now on the line of whether or not. He's going to be remembered as a true all star in his league or he's GonNa be forgotten one day. As but he's never been, but he's always been tried to be put up there. I'll be honest with you though the problem for Paul George is the player Paul, George he gets a lot of flack but let's be real before he broke his leg. At Olympics magazine before Olympics. That player versus player. Today's a different guy. It just is and the problem is during the regular season he still balling out but don't forget. He was right there were Lebron would pacers going tit for tat and he's just he's not that guy anymore and the problem is he looks like that guy so are holding them accountable now nobody can tell him to call himself play P. But at the same time I, think people do forget where he was ascending to prior to him. Breaking his leg can't forget that I do remember he. He was pre legit before it happened. It was. Unfortunate you know. Station. Freak accident really and truly, but you know. Like I said, also his mouth has if you were just been quiet throughout this whole situation, it might not be that bad as far as the way the fans are looking right now. Yeah. like I said, you cannot give yourself your own nickname man and then he co playoff. Play sports you play soccer, right? Did you give yourself a? Allie. Now Nick solder game is this show up. Your striker, right? I'm GONNA be expecting that at least two goals. So now the series is tied to. We shall see. I. Still have the Clippers winning. Because even these little series, this is definitely coming out party. Don't give me wrong. Yeah. He's come out. He showing he's a force in this league. He's just twenty one. He has a very bright career ahead of him by the clippers went in I think they're going to regroup. I'll give you some mark the tape. Go. The Clippers beat them by twenty points game. Marker tape look is not going to be close. I'm Leonard. Or your call. Luca okay tomorrow, and that's more whatever data game is. That's GonNa be the last opportunity for the clippers to make me believe that they really are who I think. They are 'cause I expect the same thing. Yeah. They're gonNA come out nick's gang gave five but you know what? We got you. CHUMPS will Luca you're good but you ain't. Now. Even if the game is close games, CLOSE COMES DOWN TO DENVER. Clear. As we thought, they were they had all this time to get. There good on paper talented no, you're right. But also matchup prom you think so I think it is I think that before to see restart sometimes wrong that's talking sometimes we all right it's a matchup problem. That's what it is. We'll see we'll see I still have the winning. And we'll say six. Look this thing by things going to be six now so we'll. We'll see we'll see. All right. So let let's stay in Texas showy. Let's talk about these rockets man Com. My God. But we're lucky to their Chris because it's all Houston takes going in on them. There's still going on him, but I mean, if if other people. That are no in a pockets but here. We, call him. Jimmy. I'm. Not Calling. Somebody will call him. Jimmy but he played like Jimmy for a little bit out goodness. So this is the thing about the rockets. So Rockets Oklahoma, city thunder, they're all tied at two now. Two Games apiece. Rockets took the first two games. Chris Paul and the thunder taking the last two games. The thing that surprises me about the rockets is that they feel surprise me. Eareckson, I'm saying. Like it's like I'm watching. Bad boys and I don't know that Wall Street's part again. Like when he out the gun like Oh. Wow. But I I notice is gonNA. Work. They played this they play these two or three games like Oh my God. This is the team right here, play some defense harnessing all the shots. The role players are knocking down shots he like. You were championship. Word Championship with this deep sense you tweet alley. Championship going up. Like this might be champions and then they do this Busa. mentioned. Bad Boys. I'm just curious 'cause. Alley did you have you ever seen bad boys one oh God. Like a long time ago. Okay. Okay. Because we're older now little older movies with ninety five. Yeah. So. Par-four came up this. Year. Was it three It was during this. Is Part two apart to. Do. Its part. As far as Iraq is concerned I love what you said about them. You still surprised that they can surprise you. In. Game for they did with their they normally do they came on third quarter they hit eight straight theories and the rest of the game they were booboo from three point line but that's what they do. That's not surprising. What is surprising is that they can't close. In a game where they should be, this should have been a sweet because it have won game three in the closeout game can't inbound the ball and then the NBA comes on says all are bad. It should have been a file that does nothing for the rockets but. What happened on that play? was they call the foul on the previous place? So they swallowed the wisdom and ask someone and I don't blame them for doing it because it was a fifty fifty call it could have been caught on harden could have been on Chris Paul but as far as Iraq unconcerned the not a championship team just like you said, you want to believe they are but they're not. They're going to need Westbrook to come back to win this series. Otherwise, we're going to lose it. And it's sad westbrook's. Sasser. Grow. What takes is not just he's GonNa come back in. And everything's going to be straight was not that as more so much when Harden Sidney down, you would hope plus minus isn't as bad because so far in the Games, winning games to the plus minus was plus five game plus fourteen game to and games three and four I. think it was negative seventeen and it wasn't that bad in game four but. Either way it's a negative when he's sitting down, you can't have that and when the way the rockets play, it has to be open shots. The cows really disappointing for awesome rivers is not play good other than game to that little spell he had. So he's a disappointing player, but as far as Dan Tony's concerned Dude, what are you going to learn? Call a timeout on the team is making a run make some adjustments. He just does not do it. Rockets are embarrassing in my opinion embarrassing. They should not share gilders Alexander Chris Paul's Phenomenon Shea Guild is Alexander Danilo Gallinari these guys can't be beat new bro come on now if the embarrassing because it's Luca Magic for the Rock, it's it's an older Chris Paul because it looks like he should even be. Embarrassing. I'm embarrassed by this rockets fan I'm not sweeten for two days. I'm good. I will go as part of embarrassed. I'm just A. The word forbid surprise I'm so surprised that I was so surprised about what's going on here like Give me I still think there's opportunity for the rockets to go deep into the playoffs because we see it, there's holes in all the teams in the NBA. There's not like I said there's there's no clear cut NBA champion I thought it was the clippers but I don't think is clear cut for now but the rockets the rockets were team that. They're streaky. Definitely. That's that's how I look at them like they'll have runs were like, oh, man, they're not gonNA shots they're playing defense. Seem like worldbeaters and then all of a sudden just like that they fall off the map they lose. Oh minds though they do look horrible but it's a collection of the players they have and the coach is. Mentioned Antoni Yeah Dan Tony Sometimes. It's looks like I don't know how to explain why he just doesn't really necessarily coach. He's like, okay. You know I'm to break only resident marketing and all you guys. Trust all on harden and he's just trust in him trusting. Trust, what are you going to? Get it. So let me ask you this. We owe and use brought up the word surprised if you had to put a surprise me of the now we're. The series is to to house surprise. Are you ten being obviously super surprised not You know I don't think. I'm that surprised. Honestly just. I'm surprised that surprise they keep you. With. What's surprising about? Why so surprised 'cause I'm a homer MARACAS. picking picking up a lot on the defensive side but. I'm not surprised that they they're doing so good. They're picking up and they're up by eleven and they're up fifteen, and then all of a sudden come back down and you're just like Oh God. This is like last year and the year before, and then you're just a, it's one of those things are I don't know as a Houston Rockets Fan I'm not traumatized I'm like like. They actually finish it off. Right right. I'm not I'm not I wouldn't say I'm. Very surprised honestly but. What's to what emotion Allie? From this. One emotion like for now, the series is tied it to what what, what are you feel right now I'm worried. Are you worried? Okay I am worried like you said this should be this should have been easy. Sweet right we should have been done for we're over here we're tied to our. Hope in that you know they pick back up but. I would be I wouldn't be surprised if they don't right. That's. Why you should be. Remain the if I like going to a word association with it you're surprise alleys ward I'm just Done. I'm done with it whether they win. Cool. They don't that school I don't trust them. So it is what it is. I. Think as far as Houston is concerned tomorrow Texans and the rockets everything I don't get online every single Houston Rockets and he's in Texas Spanish use that were before. A million times. When you're like. Borough. Alley you're talking like a true Houston fan I mean. Aside from the Astros and even though some at lusters and taken away from us because of. This eight under saying but. Going back to the rockets and going back to Oklahoma City thunder look. When the series did I start I was a little worried. You said because Russell Westbrook was out and I didn't know if. They'll be able to handle or Chris Pause brought to the table with that team with his leadership. But the first few games. We talked about it. We thought. Okay. This is. GonNa take care of this handily and they're going to stick around now. I'm concerned and the question I want to ask you guys. Now, we just talked about the Mavericks and the Clippers with team is more likely. I know the answer, but with team is more likely to win their series the mavericks are. Oklahoma City Thunder. Man It's who's more likely to win win the series. It's gotta be. Yeah I. Don't trust the rockets, right? Yeah. I don't trust the Russians learn over here assaulting. Hannitized machines at the game come on man we gotta be better than that. I mean. But least there's some emotion. That's a good think normally after as gave it to me. Because as motion where he wants to be Chris Paul but he can't 'cause at the end of the game going shot for shot and then Chris Paul's like, oh I do this for a living that's what happened basically and he made more shots than hardened it. Man, it's a close if this game five game six, game seven and the last two minutes is close rockets eliminated has done. 'cause you. Don't believe in in James Harden's ability to close out game. It's not so much that I just believe more possibility to do so do I. that. Could this shouldn't come as a shock to any of us because even during the time that Chris Paul was here he was the guy closed he was the guy that was closing. He really was until he got hurt. You know man I feel say this though after watching this series to all you warrior fans I need to know that if Chris Bowden hurt. We. Putting. Man is that GonNa be calling card forever. Her. Though. Is like certain things in sports. If people say cowboy fans, their thing is it was a catch. Art Thing is GonNa be. Alright. So we still got the rockets win this series. Is Anybody flip the switch to where like? Okay. Okay. He's in this series I haven't flipped the switch but. It's close. They lose game by see the Clippers lose game five. I don't think is over the rockets game five minutes done. To Rack. They haven't shown in kind of where I'm looking for. toughness. Yeah. You know what I'm saying so I can. See that but we'll see this. You know we'll talk about the clippers clippers taught the mavericks and we're talking about okay. See the Mavericks are a young team to coming up. So we really don't know if they can finish or not, and that's been their Achilles heel throughout the bubble actually until lately when look at that game winning shot. Thanks. Okay. See there a more veteran team but Kennedy, keep it up. Can they really keep it up not not that they don't have it but can they finish get to the finish line? So we'll see we'll see I'm I'm very interesting. What happened in debt? So let's talk about the next basketball game tomorrow all of them. Because already over. Yeah. Over but even though. Even though the jazz are three games to one over the nuggets. To Nitty to win the series now, we talked about this on previous podcast. Dr Mitchell. Talk about players that are? The top three players right now. Yeah we wanted right. Yeah, governed Mitchell and yet guys name eludes me but he's playing really will also on we'll come up to my murray talking about Murray and Murray's definitely playing. He can be guy. This is the say top two. Clear Diver Mitchell and look right now. Yeah. Those are the top two players right now the bubble do MVP right now it'll be one of those. Daryl Mitchell is carrying the jazz over the Denver Nuggets how you score fifty points? I've got a stat line, fifty eleven in something and you still losing. The nuggets are better team. Overall the jazz are they I think so I don't think they'd be better. I do well, they have a better looking roster, but they don't have always they don't have a point guard Murray's fantastic scoreboard. Man Murray he's the guy if he actually had a point guard. It would contest. But as far as down with Mitchell's concerned that dude is celebrating not seen Air Gordon. Because don't forget his rookie year, he took out playoff be. And Russell Westbrook. And then he ran into heir Gordon to strike. New was. Exactly yeah and now he doesn't have to see her Gordon. There is no heir Gordon, their side it's the Denver Nuggets and he's tortured them. They can't do anything to stop him and he has a shot working. He's like a better. Dwayne Wade. If he if he plays his career the way it could go. He's a better way I liked comparison. I would have a better there yet no, I'm saying. Okay okay. Just say he has a career Arca. Do it. I'm just telling you what the way we did it. Oh six. I didn't say he's better than I. Say I'm basically saying he has a shot to be DISA-. Hybrid to win wait. Shoot as well. I just wanted to put better to work better in their idiocy and there s pair. Damage was a beast I'll give you wrong. Gani. Opinions on his. So Yeah Mitchell is definitely the guy right now on that. Jazz team I do think the nuggets the opportunity to make this an interesting series but. Obviously. It has to start game five. So who you taking right now if you had to evaluate or look. Oh look at Dodge all day. Okay. I. Think I'm Luca because look these a right or wrong answer but there's certain things concern players and Luca Danni checks, all those things for me. So I mean even if they're both down Cassandra in the team and they're both down to drop or I'm taking Luca I wouldn't be surprised if Dr Mitchell has a great career as well but as far as look and get other teammates involved and just. Broke the guys in the plane says he was a teenager. that. Like nothing he anything autumn already seen. So. I Don a lot damage was good to-to-to. When he first came out I didn't really know because he had. He had a series where he was I think the rockets. Pretty. Good. I want continue to do that. Grow on that and he has and he's you know blowing it up in the bubble. So, let's talk about a series that hasn't happened yet, but as a series that's going to happen in the second round of the playoffs. Okay. We have the Boston Celtics, and we had the Toronto Raptors. ooh. Good. Add. On that one I think there's going to be a highly Entertaining series I think a lot. Even though some of the series had been entertained a first round. Bye things would be different level of entertaining allow the second round I'm serious. Yeah I'm Toronto's plane legal basketball. They swept the nets Boston's playing really good basketball. They swept Philadelphia seventy. Sixers I do. Pick right now. Who's going to win? I will pick to. Just because. I've been picking the Celtics before and disappointed me I know it's a different team. They have Kimball Walker now in that back court. But I think Toronto has the experience they know how to get there. They know how to win those close tough games. So I WANNA. Pick on the series I do statistical six or seven. Yeah. I got Toronto and six with the Asterik if Larry's actually hurt because he didn't finish game four but I think that was more precautionary because he wrote his angle if he's actually hurting, he can't play then. The Celtics have a good chance to win i. just think with the experience in my boy spicy and actually an actual. PC IS A bee's man. I've heard of before spicy. Spice? Up He's Spicy Z.. At, the Toronto Raptors have way too much experience at this point we didn't believe in them when Koala but now they're just letting us know that. Yeah, we could. We could hoop or without Kawhi I'm a big fan of that team I the reason I got so excited for this series. Is I WANNA see Jason Tatum? If he can have that ascension like Don Jr in like Spiderman shown as that's why I'm so excited about it because if he can. A matter how good the raptors are if datum is that guy then it may not matter whether actors do. So I'm excited to see that but he has proven now. We will contain them for a while. Now he's pro, he proved it in the first series was dominant against the Sixers, but can you take it to that next level I? Think they've gotta soccer by Actually Jason Tatum was third guy. Yeah but yeah I wanNA see him take the next level especially if it's a team like. The Toronto, Raptors play. Pretty good defense is going to be his matchup. Most of the time will be Pasco Siachen anyway. Yeah. So I I really WanNa see can take that next level and lead Boston deeper into the playoffs interesting. Yeah. I think it'll be pretty good series but who do you have you have Toronto and six? Okay Sir lowry's not injured. So be injured. I don't know. If that's a big injury. This is that's too big. Does not address. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Do Larry's career as been pretty interesting. Yeah. It's been a rollercoaster. Yeah pretty much but we'll see we'll see for the whole team in general after Kawai left is just seems like okay they figured it out exam how? About it, we talk about that was a coach really and truly coach. Coach is the shows. GOTTA CO Allahu you got. Man I don't know. I think I'm GONNA I think I'm aiming more towards the Sultan. Because I don't know. Okay Disagree Alley we all the time for today were on the same page but we. Normally. This I. Mean I agree with injury also think I mean I feel like it's most probably going to be a pretty bad injury yourselves. So I feel like the Celtics might take Jason Tatum. And the thing is. Kim Walker has the chance in the second round. Do you know we talk about not wanting to give somebody the ball in the last couple of minutes? He's a guy to close game. This has been since college. You don't want him to have the ball. He he would let. You. Know. So why does Paul George Nickname because he gave it saw. Dictates. I mean, the only person that nickname. Stuck was Kobe. Kobe Kobe Lebron. no-one said he was James. We've always he's he says, I'm the chosen one they both Kobe Lebron gave himself nicknamed. Everybody can't be coping Lebron. Yeah. Just can't. Yeah. But. It will be interesting series I'm GONNA. Watch those pieces very closely Kimba, and of course, Jason Tatum will see what happens there. All right. So that's always stick around measure. We're GONNA talk about because the other ones heavily. Come up yet to push so. NFL thing. Forget, Outta here. Earl Thomas released by the ratings. I JUST WANNA. Talk about this earl, Tom? Why? Are we talking about this guy. Say. Look man you're in a great situation with the rams a team picks you up. and. Do. We know why release them yet. Has Anybody heard anything about a year why began to see me? It's on the field. Okay. How many training camp? Not that type of fight though got beat them. Now I don't know be beaten down under that. There are a lot of things that happen behind the scenes at training camp there bro You could ask every day every day, but this is different but no-one says kick kicking up seeing especially Earl Thomas supposed to be at. Peace. Yeah. Odd To me, this has to be a put. That number one he's not that guy anymore as number one is that the truth that what? Israel not what what happened was they figured out Oh, he's not that guy. Go pick a fight with. They wouldn't do that because they gotta pay him unless the trigger some. That'd be that makes it even more ought to be defended as data pay him, and he got into a fight with a player last season and already rubbed the organization. Wrong. When I we're was eighteen I mean other players on the defense. So I'm assuming what happened this season it wasn't just a normal fight. He must have picked it out and it may have been chirping may have said some things? The mass will got him. You got to fight with the. SEATTLE WHO'S THE LSU? No No. No. He got to fight with another ravens player last season and got in trouble or some type of skirmish couple when using entertain. With his last year oh the play. was last year you you scare up okay but I see what you're saying I see. No but I. Think it was a building up of thinks and Say. Guy Yeah. Because look man there's a lot of players that come through the NFL. So the NFL that are they're hot they're they're high motor guys the guy that comes to mind instantly Steve. Smith. You, you don't WanNA fight that do. You. Don't he little he little and everything I'm a grown man you go. If these Games reminds house I go. Chris. Sit Down I'm GonNa have to contemplate. Like do I really want this smoke right now. About that life. Yeah. Like real talk and he has been in many altercations. With other teammates, he's beat. In other teammates up. Yeah. But they've never talked about a we're going to release D Smith. So you think more it has to be is like some infidelity wanting mess with the teammates wife maybe because he had trouble. Trying to do. About this. You got explaining you gotta you gotTa Pay. So I I forget all the details but. Him and his brother, and that's that's the part. That's this weird. He outgrowths. You say we're growth is gross disgusting up see all those. Things right now. I don't know where this is GonNa go. So you just said, Heaven Hasbro. Did they planned this they planned. Got I did hear about. How do you forget about this? So. It was an orgy right in, but it's Sometimes. Best case scenario, that's what it was. Okay. So. Pair this now remember I said with his brother. Yeah, that's right. So the thing about this whole story is that. We talked about the guided. Mistakenly, tweeted out the N. Word Right and we we made it a point to say that this is the first time you've done this. This is where I'm going with this to this is if This is say this out of this for chuckles. Let's say me and Chris are GonNa Planet. Orgy Bro. Off. It's going to be a long discussion. It's not gonna be like, okay. We'll do it unless we've done these kind of things before. I think I think he called me Yo. It's Poppin. came. True. I think. That's what happened. So they planned this this orgy. And I forgot the social media, whatever it was that tracks your every move that he was on snapchat does that is one of those. So his wife knows where he's at. He knows the location he's at so they're they're. Now, by yourself but what her posse as well. And with was it the Nina a what was it? The Glock one of those, not some kind of weapon. And pointed way. Earl. Thomas. Now, the thing. About this is after the whole incident. He plays a victim. Remember, I do remember that Oh my God. That's wild. So maybe that's I don't know. But now he's being released. He was a be a key piece in the ravens trying to get to US Rubio and I just find it odd that there they released. I really do I mean this is like I said people get into fights altercations all the time. Training. And fighting go hand in hand. Does, so it's odd to me. Yeah seriously it is. So honestly the only person who currently plays sports on podcast alley when you have a fight with a teammate. What happened? Because I know when we hope we just like, Oh, saying we just DAB it up and when we move on, but the ravens have moved on. So in your experience when there's a fight with teammates, what happened I don't know I mean. Well. We don't really get into fights to be on his like, yes, we also disagree but. I don't think it's ever been that bad personally for me to be like, okay. Now, we just can't play together at all or something but. Yeah. No Elliot's is. Kind of person that's GonNa find anybody yeah. I'm competitive. That's one thing I'm ready to like beat you you. The more. The more we talk about this the more I think it might be something different. It's definitely. This Chris There's. One. Hundred I've never been more sure about anything in my life. There is definitely more going on because it's not just it's not just like sometimes it's just like the coach says, Bill O'Brien for instance, I don't want this clear on my team. I'M GONNA trade him and get no assets for you know he's the best receiver, the game I'm just going to trade your. Soul my teammates on our my heart my play. Let's go to trade this guy. But the key thing that got me Ho Ravens situation was the teammates. Out. Like this just that doesn't make any sense to me. Yeah I mean is one thing that. Is One thing to be a player that all -cation you're good. The team mates are GONNA thing. Okay. I know we got occasion, but we need this guy. To go further into the playoffs they didn't even care about that. But that's the laboratories to as well. They must have a real. Yeah they have a real. This is a lot. 'cause a Lotta Organization. We're GONNA do that. It will just come down to the coaches like you want him out. He's gone. Date he today the Dow was it. They don't care about how many pay him. They were like that. That's a lot. Yeah me. 'cause out about Roy Thomas Dole to as well because he's left. Even. The whole thing was seattle. Him flipping them off. No had no problem with that. But. I. Yes. But now that all this history. The orgy. What. She'd be listening. To when he saw about. Oh Talking about. Is Thomas at all either things that go associated with. To this point. So now you've got to look at the facts risk. Sometimes you can look at the. Aren't good but. Flip the bird thing I'm all for that. I had no problem with that. I would at first but now did might be something underlining their. Wrong Underline there he said I want my money and then he got injured. So I'm flipping a lot. I have no problem with that. That's funny. That's funny. Any closing words? Alley before we we dip out well, I mean it was a very interesting. I Talk Orgies. And stuff. No Yeah. I'm just excited for the NBA playoffs. Where is GONNA go Mosul more than anything? Both. With Iraq is gonNA, stick around I. Don't know that's a good thing or bad thing I want them there. But I don't want them there. The further they go the more painful it might be. I. Mean This is one question. WanNa actually Chris before we before we leave. because. We talked about. Pressure, on certain player Jaanus Onto Cuco and James Harden Yeah. Are you still feel the same way that if James Harden loses in his first round of the playoffs that is doesn't the rhetoric will still be the same? We'll be working. It'll be the same. Then rhetoric is GonNa Change. Okay. Well Allie. A pleasure having you on. Like I said, she will be the spokesperson for the.

Or you don't and I'm very never Sherman I'm saying negative GonNa win this series well, you don't want to give a team like the nuggets an opportunity to push because they can have a game where the hit twenty three pounds they could do I think they went seven nine of some of the closer than fourth quarter in game five.

I'm a I play basketball kid and I always love point guards So like Jason Kidd's one of my favorite players of all time and sue bird when the WNBA came about she was just like one of my favorite point guards to watch I loved how she played she just she plays a lot like how I like to play, which is just get everybody in rise does don't care about scoring just. Baking my teammates better and yeah. I, just like how she plays a like her attitude even off the court she's really funny to me and you know the fact that she likes hip hop is always a good thing. I learned something new today. Yeah. Like you. Re until I recently, I was like oh so she wanted. Everything. Yeah. But she is a phenomenal point guard. She definitely likes his tribute to ball. She does decent kid a lot actually on the court. She's I used to call it a female version of Jason out when I was growing up and. That's a good one. That's a good one. But you also really like drew brees and Rogers and Patrick mahomes big Aaron, rodgers fantasy myself. You can access on over here about that. He knows that for sure. So, your favorite sports moment has an Nadu Houston. Sports. It was actually the date at Dale Earnhardt Jr.. When did they tone a Pepsi four hundred it was the same year his father passed away and you thought it was a cool moment. Yeah. Watching him. He was like eighth eighth place and I think it was maybe like. Ten laps to go or something and he went from eight I. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He won that race and I was just like, wow, 'cause Dole juniors the reason why actually watch Nascar he's the main person got sport and so at that time I, was watching NASCAR sporadically didn't watch it the way that I watch it now. So I just wind up watching that race and just saw, wow, this is crazy. Just seeing fans celebrating and then when I learned the history behind it because I didn't know I watched it the way that I watched it. I didn't know that his father had died. When I found out the history of them, I'll say this is really cool. I, know I just love watching that it's a great moment. It was a great moment I did watch that a couple times to myself I. I heard about his father passing away by never really watched it. I went back and watched it went down Youtube I. Wish I didn't but I did watch it and it was A. Very very sad that that that moment push them to be a lot more safer. Yes absolutely. Because yeah. It did it did. So that's that's the the bio for Nisha it's. So we're going to do here and we'll do it all our guest. We're going to play a little game. Okay. This call truth or dare Channel Sports podcast presents third. Okay I'm all about your dares. Dare you. Wind up jump in office. Something they. GotTa eat the physical. Things like that. All right. Hours I'm GonNa Actually Nisha truth of their okay. If you say truths say is it true that Vernon Maxwell was the greatest shooting guard of all time? You say they're going to be like I dare you to say that the Shinawatra crabby quarterback and ego say, no, I'd rather. A bowl of cockroaches or something like that. So I will do what do you want to do what you're going to do? Let me tell you the truth I'll do there. All right. Okay. So I dare you I double. Dare you to say that there is a better center than Akeem Olajuwon. Ever. Wilt Chamberlain Okay so Gentlemen. Thank you for. Explained that to me, I mean. There's A liable do will chamberlain is the greatest. You know also quieter no by no one hundred during people's BIOS, interrupt. Things to say, but she's Houston through and through. To. You. Shine and then you're going to do that. Explain what we're saying. If. You if you pick up the center like there's no other sooner, that's like saying who's the best point guard other than Kyrie irving like Magic Johnson like I mean it wasn't. Kyri kind of feel like if there wasn't a will would there be Akeem. Always pay homage to the people that came before. So, when people say Jordan is the goat go to that particular era but there was somebody greater than him beforehand we may not have been able to see that person. But doesn't mean that they weren't great. So if I had to pick someone over Akeem is not going to be shack. Is going to be somebody that is known as one of the best ever do not. That I said, things that keen but go ahead. Just. Different like he's just different I'll give you truth This was kind of unfair but I'm interested in your opinion is it true? That deandre Hopkins is the greatest wide receiver to Eber but on a Texans uniform. ooh. Oh. Have to say no Ooh, and it's a very close. No because Andre wishes something special. On Johnson Lewis to some special and. And plus. Andrei between finished on. Top Rice he will always and forever be the best wide receiver in Houston. Texas history. But. The Andre if he's like, like Andres I and the Andres one point five. He's not even second he's one point five I can definitely I must now. We are missing physio Thursday night. Oh. Know. It all started with Dynamo, but it took. On top. I knew we were all GonNa lose wants to Dynamo tied their soccer game. Here we go. Avenue Domino effect might be one of the worst days in Houston. Sport. History. Everybody Law and we all got losing records. That's ridiculous is sad. It really is at. All right. So that was shooter there with Nisha very good head pretty well there. Thank you. Thank you. Because you know he has he hasn't took questions sometimes. Yeah. Yeah. I mean you bring all we do around to. Get into the show issue home. All. Right. So we did talk a little bit about Thursday night football that happened this past Thursday. We had our Houston Texans and the Kansas City chiefs. We're not gonNA talk too much about the actual gang because we already know what happened Texans lost and I it wasn't wasn't pretty at very disappointed about that. But before the game started, the players had a moment of silence. So they all went to the middle of the field they intertwined locked elbows and everything and had a moment of silence for racial justice during that period of time it seemed like some of the fans are doing I'll no that was me but it seemed like some of the fans were actually boy. So? What are you guys thoughts on what happened and what went down on Thursday night There's a little bit on radio show. The way I see it is is. How do you protest? There's no way to do it. You can't stand in protest because that's a problem. You can't kneel in protest because that's the problem. You can't put your fist open air because that's a problem. You can't stay in the locker room because that's a problem and then you can't wait until after the national anthem is played because gets what that's the problem. So in my opinion, I have no opinion this anymore, I'm just done. If you WANNA BOO BOO at this point, there's another we can do protests. People are angry and upset did they know then it makes me the most angry if you walked up to somebody said, hey why are you doing like well as disrespectful but it didn't happen during the national anthem. They stumble a make up an answer that either incoherent or straight up. Stupid. So for me I'm done. I'm not doing no more when I heard the boos. I'm like, okay. All of you confused because I don't understand this the one thing I will say about the moment of silence or moment of unity whatever the NFL is doing is the NFL continues to lag behind the NBA because when you watch the NBA, it's very obvious when there's a moment of unity of silence, it's black lives matter it's racial injustice were not taking. This anymore. Vote do whatever you gotta do less make some change. But with the NFL to Shawn Watson was looking for Mahomes Mahomes is looking for Watson. They lot arms looked awkward and the booze habit is almost fitting for the moment because they just didn't seem to be organized right? True. Very true. I wasn't surprised one because there were there at I really don't understand why they were booing however I have a friend and I was reading he was talking about the same thing and one of his friends commented and said that this is what one of my friends said in were at the game. Basically, what they were saying is that they were doing the Texans because that's just what they do and they went from and I was like this doesn't make any sense because actually watched the game I saw them come out they went directly to the sideline. He was saying, no, they went directly to center to the to the center field and that's why they were doing that doesn't make any sense to me like it just seems like they were booing just because and they're saying well. In the stadium didn't know that it was a moment of unity. Is that how you not here among those stadiums are huge there's not that many people in there. So it's not like you're not going to hear what he says I just don't understand why I would like explanation actually our like for someone to find a Kansas City chiefs fan and ask them wattage Abu I think I don't think you want to do that I I want I always want to know why You'RE GONNA ask the question, but you're not going to get a cohere an answer for me. If you can't explain why you do send the we've had this discussion podcast. Bunch is even when when you when the rest of your team is in the ailing and you're standing in, they say, well, why are you doing it? Well, because I don't know maybe Jesus Jesus, Christ? Like you got to have a coherent answer for me. You gotTa tell me something that makes sense. So I really don't want to know what their answer is. They're going to regard this as me I didn't boob regardless no matter what the players do. As, long as they're doing something that stops the flow of football, somebody's going to and you know it right. You know what if that if you're entitled to boot is go ahead man. When I saw it efforts I was so entrenched at football season with starting thyroid even note neighbouring honestly jewelry ours is like referendum play football. My takes the play. So after the fact, when two story got out that people are actually doing I went back to try and watch like Oh. Wow you're really she balloon now no, the car I ca I call a moment of silence for racial injustice on moment of silence moment for unity like you said by I, don't know what it was. That's my point. Yeah. As a fan. Well, what are they doing? Let's say that it was a moment of unity but they did look on organized then you'll talk about this before beforehand. Why why are you looking for Sean? Sean? The football on the side weren't you're supposed to meet in the middle to begin with once ran out I'm confused when it actually started playing football the Xiao Watson found Patrick Mahomes a lot easier when you're out of bounds or sat next to him. So. It's like Oh. There you are. Question though. How do you feel about the Texans Locker Room. For me. I just I don't get it because. I understood when Kapernick was milling what that meant, but now is just to it's almost pop pop culture now. Are, you midland standing what are you doing? It's almost like we went to work. And most people are working remotely. Let's go into work and say, hey, run play the national anthem. Now everybody we talk are you going to stay go neil and nobody's actually talking about the racial injustice that's the reason capture nell whether the Texas being in the locker room and them running out what's the message? Maybe there was a message maybe to dislike you tired or you know what I'm not gonNA stand I'm not GonNa Kneel on this GonNa stay back here and because I'm this because I heard some teams are not gonna come out throughout the whole season for national anthem because it is I think that the messages are now meet. When they go out their stories more. So about this, what you just said, are you going Stan Really GonNa new? There's no meaning behind anymore. No one even knows what it means that he wore trying to change it up. As a divorce him. So I think they just did it because you know maybe it is tired the whole thing and his whole as a teen decided state locker room. I don't really see the pointing because I Mariano Locker Room in twenty like. Two dozen nine. But two, thousand and six, thousand seven or still in locker room. So. Like it, you don't have a problem with them being locker room beforehand now you're used to it, and now they're going back so We don't change everyone's GonNa make a big deal about it but. I just thought I actually thought the reason why they stayed in the locker room is mainly because they're probably GonNa have half your team is going to kneel or sit down while the other half is going to stand and from how Bill O'Brien is based off of what I've seen in hard knocks and things like that. He wants less drama as possible and in media dramas possible. So if you know that about your team, the only real solution is for you to stay in a locker room not to draw attention to yourselves innocence. I agree I've also probably a hundred percent below Brian motivated and when I saw bill by writing down to the field, this is just me going off but I saw run into the field the way he runs I knew. It's heartbreak for me. Small Heart Bro. stood. Understand that either I started in how you lose twenty four, you twenty, four point lead you lose and you're still the GM and the head coach both I have to I, really want to know what he has on Bob McNair. McNair family like he has to have something something that's keeping him in this in this position because there's no way, there's no way any other person I don't get it. I don't understand. These things were not going over not gonna not like five or ten years now I I we. Anything like that. We'll still have no championship. Awesome. I can't see it right now I just can't. All right. So let's talk some headlines Real quick before we we move on to talk about this before we talked about the moment of unity are Silas wherever you want to go. So Daniel House Houston Rockets Oh boy out the bubble. Can you imagine? Because he invited someone to his hotel room. Now I think it was. Allegedly, but he's been kicked out. So it's not let elite anymore. got. Kicked out but we have no idea what happened well, he invited a female into his hotel room. That was I guess like Does attest to Kobe's writing and so because of that, it was authorized for him to do that. He was kicked out they were investigating it. You know what I don't get though. If she truly was a so first of all, there's a couple of layers to this one. We don't know what happened the NBA's not saying. So that's number one but number two issues already in the bubble. What's the problem? Seriously? They're all on the Bible anyway what's the big deal? The rules are rules right I. Guess She's in the bubble. People's families are in there, but apparently he's married. Ask. You're dead. You House right now you tell your wife day. I. Don't care. Think. He's a chance to say that. I really don't think he got kicked out about go home. If I was in. A don't go home don't go home. His wife is now playing any games that she scrubbed him from they life. Autumn Pictures Off Don't go wild. You want to know something. Is My theory I'm not gonNA say any players My theory is that he was a scapegoat in this. There was more than one rocket involved because it doesn't make any sense the only team in that hotel. Gossiping, but this is this real. They said I mentioned Tyson Chandler, and then all of a sudden disappeared and heard Tyson Chandler snakes off about what happened now. The person that took the fall of him if there was exactly ain't even play a man. That's why I kinda think he might have been the the loan corporate. Still. He shouldn't have put something seven I. Suggest I. Don't put yourself in that situation. All right. So the headline talked about Conor McGregor. This guy thinks I always find himself some kind of. Heard about this, but he was detained for attempted sexual assault. Denies the allegations he was in course it Cana- somewhere and when it's all went down, he's in trouble. Now I guess is all of that trouble. Yeah. Always never knew we also had Delvin Cook Cooper Cup Abbott Kamerhe they all sign extensions radio again, pay time to stay with their teams might think dove and Cook, is probably the most needed one I don't those three I. The RAMS seemed to pay everybody And I don't understand it I. Don't know what they're doing, but really click on Alvin Kamara I'm kinda surprised it got that amount of money because I I wouldn't abatement. Yeah. Well, we're talking before when they kind of went back and forth we know that they're going to them or not they re sign that I'm surprised he got that money I'll give him though I'm always happy for Somebody Day bread, but I just didn't have done it. So that was headlines Let's talk about the National Basketball Association the Boston Celtics advanced they play a great series against Toronto Raptors. We talked about this podcast before crispy thousand be an excellent series turned out to be when it was two zero. was. Like Oh this is Dumb as. Series. and. That was we're taping today that Oj Oj. No G. O. G. Kapros Newbie Avenue. Me He'll kill this name you butchered. I'm og, but he wanted the greatest playoff shots in the history of NBA. In. A bubble. So in a in a turned the tide in this series, made it a very, very good one. So now they advanced GonNa play the Miami Heat, which also pre- pretty series you. Would have been more competitive. It was Toronto. Raptors right. Yeah. I would be very competitive I. Think they're the boss is a big three is going to be a handful for Miami I have awesome in series. To both at Boston I. Don't think that Miami has enough weapons. I. Don't I just don't see it especially you know if you get hayward back and yeah that's going to be a question is he gonna be in rhythm or not but just presence alone is going to open up some stuff when people and then you got Marcus smart other people scan. So that's going to be interesting to see how him and Butler. That's GONNA. Be Good for me. It's a toss up series. It really is. I slightly, you do favor the celtics like both of you because it has more talent straight up. So normally the talent wins. Jimmy Butler is a better marcus smart in every way he just is smart is the key to the celtics engine. Psychiatry Kimball Walker. Virtually. No. Don't do that. Again. Don't say that man's name again. No, but Kimble's got better like straight up. If he does it, he plays the way he played against the raptors. The Miami Heat will be in five. Going, to need him but actually think he will step up the Celtics in seven but the orders were mapping. The heat is I've been on the heat all year but I haven't picked him in the playoffs other than the Pacers because I'm that was too easy so. I think the heater GonNa win but I like the heat and they get to the final saucy the Celtics instead, what are you doing? Hey, dude. You tell it is CEO by this podcast I need to make a decisive decision he in six. Okay. There you go. Say. What you like that I got the Celtics and seven yeah did. I. Just think that like we allude to too much how chasing Jason Tatum is really showing himself to emerge superstar in these play in game seven he played really well, there was some flashes of Kobe there with that post up fadeaway. Oh, look at this a jason is looking really good. So I think he's going to be actually one of the keys to them advancing to the finals I think the key to them beating Toronto also was that you know Pascal. Play well, he played. Serious. Thank you. Yeah. But he he was supposed to be him and Jason Tatum on that same kind of projector right and that was a series for him to really. You know pickup and gets that next level he just just didn't do it. I will say this though as an NBA Fan I'd rather have the Celtics win the series because I. Don't know the heat half a chance with. Any of the four teams laughing in the Western conference I? Don't Abbott joins the only two teams left in Alaska trump. I sit here I. Don't be La okay. Let's finals. Let me say something. No, I'm GONNA say some. News them. Those Denver Nuggets now if they're not I didn't I didn't. Say. pissed. This problem with the clippers though. They can't, close out game. Overtime they. Can't close out game. They can't do it. That's a theme with Doc rivers teams. Close, go game. I think that's the problem. Okay. So we're we're finished talking about. Talking about Easter Amazingly. Let's go ahead and talk about the clippers and the nuggets I do think that the fact that the clippers lost sixteen point lead to nuggets is going to help them out in the long run because they've been doing this throughout the whole player that has been coast. With the Dow's net nuggets they were coast and a little bit. They weren't playing to their potential you mean the mavericks. Out. GOING, y'all go ahead and take over the pocket. Well say this for the for the clippers and my biggest issue with them is. Said, they don't close and it's not something you learn how to do on the fly either do it or you don't and I'm very nervous in them. I'm saying is GonNa win this series, but you don't WanNa, give a team like the nuggets and opportunity to push you because they can have a game where twenty three pointers they can do it. I mean. They went seven for nine or something close to that in the fourth quarter in game five. So you want to close them out and they didn't and a guy like Michael. Porter Jr.. He's only getting better by not by the game he's getting better by the minute. So you don't want a guy like that in a game seven who he doesn't have anything to play for you just open and they've been in a tough series. Already the clippers don't close them out and six in there they're asking for a little trouble. I'm just telling you the clippers need a win this series and six I saw Lhasa. Doc Rivers may be, they coach. Shocking he might not be. You never know but that's yeah. I'm not surprised leads are dropped in a sense because of just how they play. Now you know it's more of a scoring than than defense you're going to have your runs. And I was really surprised like I said clippers they haven't really been closing out like they should be they should be Dallas and five. Honestly like I knew it was going to win one game just because it just how they play but that Syrian never took that long and it's just closing out. Coz Now that same thing rockets but. It's always been two minutes. I'm back I kind of took a Mussa to get back good I think I hope I'm okay. So anyway, going to say Oh gee and a new. Oji. Did you say, right Now I'm not GonNa do it Y'all? Boven. Aminu be my. Clothes. I I'm going to say. Virtuous they. They WanNa hang just got jaanus coupons named down right. So I'm. Not. GonNa go see. Even even when you're trying to degrade. got. Under Combo, right so you try to. backhand compliment. Okay. So anyway. Anyway of the Clippers we just talk about this, they should have beat the Dallas Mavericks and five Games, and I just think that this is just another way for them to become better as a team because I don't think they've really been playing as a cohesive unit yet is kind of just different players out there doing their thing. I think that the sixteen point lead, they lost two nuggets, just GonNa make them better prepared for the Lakers I'm very much looking forward to that serves a murdy riding the raucous. If you're I'm sorry if you're a Houston fan are you Iraq's man Uganda Messier's zone does based on what you saw in game I'm five and what? Your your best player was in there. He basically gave him t that's what I saw. Dances me personally I, love the rockets ten percent but that's over is going to be a Lakers is going to be clippers the western conference finals and I do fully expect the clippers or taking six not narrowness the NBA it get that right That's the NBA. Yeah because any. Clippers Lakers or rockets depending I'd. Give them a chance you know here's the thing I would if they would close games out. And if they would actually. Play more than seven people. Oh. That's Exactly. So and I and I personally don't even think that he's made a good He hasn't really. Done, anything about Rondo. At, all like who, when Rondos in WHO's in? You have people that can't really guard him. You haven't you haven't made any type of moves to to stop him from being the point guard in the sense of where you're telling me. Mike then Tony hasn't made adjusted been. He has judgment. Judgment Thought about this Ah zero, understand what you I'm talking to you all because y'all. Grease, what am I point is, what did you get expense pink was going to? Send him to. At, least make one adjust. Thing about the rockets We've talked about before, right? Yeah. What you what you get. Right James Harden would she sees what you get. We did something anything different from these two James. Harden. Has Ryan the same narrative form self they done in previous years where he might disappear a game or two we expect it. But as far as the coaching is concerned, we brought Mike Dantonio and win a year or two ago. This is. No. Longer. He was there when Chris Paul was there to write. About four five season, only four or five season that's even worse than because. Look we expected when he came in to be the difference for his rockets team I do i. I did. Not. I did not even was going to be I don't want him. They are question beginning. I'm not saying that I don't want to be a coach either but I thought he was brought in to get us to help get over that Hump. Now, what what do we expect to get over the Hump? Then that James Harden was gonna be I thought it was going to be Chris Paul? I said it on this podcast. Chris, for Chris Paul was okay. So my point is as a rocket fan during this series, I've we mean you talk about it I never expected the rockets win i. was going to end in five minutes playing out the way expected end. So if I have, let's say I had a pie chart and I'm giving out blame percentages of the blame I give about fifty two Dan Tony the rest is going to go with. That's the most I mean as we're. Also giving fifty him because he just needs to be fired either he. xactly. But honestly, and truly though as somebody who knows Dantonio we've talked about this honestly and truly if. Taken Dantonio. In my opinion, he really get about thirty percent because we knew he wasn't going to make any adjustments on Westbrook and Harden Harden. This looks like this not. As a coach then Tony hasn't changed but as a player harden has grown but whatever whatever it is when it comes to the playoffs and they said, hey, you got to be the man he just doesn't want to do it. Don't he can't I met I'm at the position now like he cannot be that guy but the last game now, I can't really necessarily not the last game that they got. It was a game molly three gearing up four going for game for where he he was making the right place. They just were making their shots. He got doubled he passed the ball. He got past the ball. He took his shot when he was open but they were making shots I was watching I. Don't know what gaming was made. It was last Game Austin rivers got the ball. Got The ball he cut the man even look at the basket. What are you doing? What are you doing? Shoot the ball he you I'm looking for James He's double team, shoot the ball young man like, what are you doing but? When you see these Games, right? Maybe mean you Kurt from wrong but it seems like the same play every tiny good on the court, which is watched James. Dribble yards, James, the ball get into the double team and it looks as a ball to. Every single time down the court as a head coach. Can you the ball to me? Also rivers come down SIPA play? It's a perfect marriage would Dan Tony and James James Hunters one chains away he plays and Mike Dean toys on them. This guy do whatever they WANNA do. The way talks about Russ being in the lineup that's our guy. He's GonNa be in the lineup. If we lose, we lose them that's not the mentality should have as a head coach and that's why I putting a lot of onus on him. This is his fifth year in, and he still can't get some kind of change out of James Harden to play a little bit differently. So they can win Dang gone playoff series against look. I'm not saying that they should be Lakers. We weren't going to be the Lakers but the last game they played against them. What's embarrassing they're much and they've had at least one or two of those they every year. You're right. But the reason in this, you will call this coach alcohol players if you sack up the Lakers rock roster versus the rockets Rossier and you take out the first two. So Westberg Hardin Eighty Lebron. You could argue the rockets have a better player at damn near every position you could argue it. Other than playoff Rondo Rondos a little different these. So for me, I kind of blame the players'll if it happens are you guaranteeing rocks windy with that lineup against that Lakers? We if we fired Antonio no understand if Dantonio had death-squad harden a whisper and. Say has asked what without Lebron ad you cannot guarantee. They're going series even though to have a better player, I did it. Okay well, we know that but that's my point. Who would we blame the coach I don't you blame the coach I. Didn't close at all. Point. Point Point. The answers, they don't close coaches don't close game. It's player superstars close no I understand it don't get me wrong I understand that but there's I think that the rockets were a clear cut better team o'casey. That's is what I think. I don't think it shouldn't even come close to where they have to close the Games out. I think it should have been easy four or five game series. That's. I. Don't think Dantonio. A Great Job coaching at all I just doesn't mean and I think after this is done, we're going to see that small balls and be gone happily and hopefully. They might try one more run James James but he had to get with Russell Westbrook. I just think it's not working see I. Don't I've heard that multiple times with Russell but I also I can't necessarily blame him a blaming him well. Just in a sense, they're like, oh, well, they don't Mesh well together and I think it's mainly because of the offense that you run. And and I think that Russ actually more effective because like there's what is it like he comes in and James goes out the last five four or five minutes or something like that. In that four or five minute span, you should be running completely different offense but instead you run the same exact offense that you remember James and you expect Russ to be James. Russ's and James Rush. Russell respite shot. So broke that poor people have more money than her like. It's so bad. But you should be run and you should be cutting. You should pay should be higher like you should be running a different type of. Offense, and I blame is Dan Tony. The Lakers of combat right so once you put Lebron Russ. Russ has no shot and that's what they've done. So whenever it's normally Russ balloon but there's no adjustment no, no no. No. No No, no. No. What they normally do in that situation, they put the ball on Air Gordon's hands and the options rents decently Russell Westbrook has been horror this series. Coach can fix that. You talk about his shot being broke. You don't have to think there's a game that they lost game too because you didn't take him out the game that's how you fix it if he's playing as. He was the main reason that they lost to. Laws, they would've won they, I'm saying where one game you this would have happened anyway. But you at least gave them a chance. You don't know what happens if they go up to. Okay. That team I because they went down and game four and said sorry over as they went back to back games. That's how I felt from that performance they had at the game for the game I didn't. In all honesty our listeners I'd I really did not watch that game budget up now watch like I've watched it afterwards. I didn't watch it. I couldn't do. It was a game three dad. Russ. Had like the first is the first quarter. He had like ten tournament without the game I don't. I don't think it was game to it could have been pick a game. It was it was just one I'm like, what are you know? He's like back to back to back to back to back on my Russell, just pick the ball up and pass it. Like what you're doing many blue, our entire rhythm. New from Russia Westwood when he was okay see and he had Paul George let's be honest. He Awesome Games for them in the playoffs if he simply does pass the ball to Paul George and Paul. George with thing it's time in that he will pass it just there was a game. For. He's just he he's not worried about that I. Think he's okay with that like the way he plays I don't. I, don't want to call this the issues, his paces toupet Nazi's. With you can be you need some type of calm was game. I'm not saying slow down but you need to understand what you're doing. You can't go one on foreign turn the ball over last my whole thing this is. This is the season making problem with you shouldn't be taking on one, zero four and the first, but he could still play as frantically up and down the court as he wants aggressive style. That's how he plays with the reckless abandon. But sometimes, decision making is like, what are you doing i? Mean this I know what you're saying though as far as I don't think it's too late right now for tell him to dial it back. He's GonNa. Do what he does, but I'm know I'm really I'm really disappointed as rockets team. Can I ask you a question? Yes you brought up Chris. Paul. And James The one year do you really think that Chris was to blame for what happened? The year before. I. Think he is. No I don't I. Don't I don't anymore. I I watched I didn't. I, didn't watch it but I was clicking through some social media thing. React semi questioned him mccloughan. So. You ever humor when when Chris Paul was trying to. Dab Up. James. Harden and James Aren't kind his his hand away. He's heard deemed as well. I don't know I just I. Feel like you know Chris Paul's Apple. Dog Right he goes in he commands respect everybody on the court and this is the way it's been for me since he's been the League James. Harden is kind of a laid back guy I think that maybe Chris Paul is trying to. Push him a little bit to do something and he just wasn't having it. Look at the problem is, is that if you're going to have a guy push you, you have to see him on the same level as you and for James Harden you can sell after they lost to the warriors two years ago not the one happened Lassie's Chris Paul has guy with an therefore him. So he took all of the blame. So if you're James and then remember the following year Chris Paul Miss a lot of the season. So if you're James, you do the fact that we even in this position is because of me and the reason why Blame Chris Paul is he didn't understand how to turn it off and on because Chris Paul's best chance winning championships. So it's on both of them but the reason why I put it on Chris Paul is he's already ran out two franchises in the past. Let's not get it twisted that clippers steam that he was on underachieved largely because of him if these are just facts because the way he treated his other superstars and he had a chance hearing blue with James. So I blame him more than blamed James because we know James is he's like you said lacks. Done it without him either go and you won't. I didn't I would I just I kind of I miss I. Miss Paul, I keep going back to it was the second year the warriors play. Cleveland and. Steph curry did a behind the back pass I think it was to clay and all I. Keep Remembering is the the commentators going you or someone someone saying you never would've seen that with Chris Paul like it never would have happened and so when I see Russel Westbrook constantly turn the ball over like a part of me really wish that. Christmas still hear somebody show took a pay cut and they all could have just been there because we need somebody to really be the four general and you can't expect James Harden and to do that that's not his game yeah. I I agree is not as game in the fourth quarter no is not and we know we talk about the fourth quarter during that run unless you WanNa talk about James Harden game, they're the runs ahead in the playoffs to that point Chris was a closer he's the one that will not the games in the playoffs. Yes. Even if during the long haul or the long-term James Harden and see Chris Paul being there in the most important series of his playoff career against the warriors if he didn't and see how important Chris Paul West him in that moment that I, you can't tell him he did he saw pouring Chris. Paul. Was Any som- get hurt and then the following season he gets hurt again. So if you're James Harden, you're thinking to yourself. That me don't listen to what he has to say exactly I mean. But this is how it is. If you're doing whatever you're doing and you're doing with a partner and that partner is not part of the grind and you get to a certain level without them when they come back, it's Kinda. Hard to listen to them because you've been part of a and everybody I think people who are Liberal Helen me you Chris I think. We'll be like well, this guy knows Tom even though he might not be on a level at on me playing wise and there are a lot of players throughout the course career that weren't Yvonne to court you look at Shang Batty Apr Juwan, Howard, they weren't playing. But when they told us, it was start this high should do things from evaluating on the sidelines yet. They will listen I don't care if Chris Paul was playing or not. Chris Paul was a main cock in that team for them to get to a championship. We all agree that if he stayed healthy, we might have been talking about the rockets as a championship team right now I because they were playing well, I just think James Hard for me personally I understand what you're saying I follow up with this and this could be like a rapper fire one. Because I wanted that way I just went both of us the questions of both of you. One person has to leave who actually yet one person has to leave in this triangle my Tony. Russell Westbrook. James Harden or dare Maury, one person's gotta go is has to be Mark Dantonio. Okay that's easy for me. Yeah. I would say Dan Tony. Unless I mean. But then again, if Tara leaves Dantonio GonNa leave no matter what Yeah good w money on album I. I would say. Daryl. From from a very for a couple of years now, he makes these really weird trades. We have a crappy year and he winds up saving his job by making the right trade with the Chris Paul Situation. Because like he really shouldn't have been the GM but he made this just trade to save his career. He did the same thing kind of with Russell Westbrook in the. Chris. But I think with the new owner. I just don't I don't see that working out with him and then on top of that, you just lost NBA a lot of money. I just kind of think that. Darrell Daryl's on thin ice and I can see him I can see ten getting rid of him and going a different way because his style very similar to Dan Tony. His style of being GM is not going to change. He's GonNa stay analytical. He's GonNa go by this and I've said this years ago analytics is great. But at the end of the day when you're on the on the court, you have to have chemistry and right now the players that you putting in in May work with their little algorithm but it's not working right now on the court. And it's not GonNa win a championship that way. So I I would say though. I Iraq her Maury me personally. I think. I'm with you on the two for one. Begins Today, Tony I'm. For the to by being aborted to for get rid of their Borey, then might Dantonio go. You might be getting rid of. James Barr both James it harder. You imagine you're building all over I. Still think with the right person. James. Harden can win a championship. But has to be the right person now as far as their Maury is concerned, I dislike the moves that he's made I think if you had average GM their dirac is one, it'd be anywhere close position. 'cause you gotta remember what he got him out of even though they're still still sort of in a purgatory to some degree. It was a worst purgatory before he got there what he was able to get James Harden. Was Amazing that was amazing but but and then we let's be honest now when we got James Harden, the, any of us think that he was going to be consistently MVP finalist. Year after year no no no one thought that he was going be the superstar today now that he's grown to their superstar that's basically why der more has a job right now because of that movie made or absolutely. Yes. I mean. When people did also say when that trade happened he stilling on goes a championship. That's true too. That's as far as individually what James Harden has done. You can argue he just hasn't had to write pieces around him. Look what happened with Chris Paul Chris Paul got hurt if Chris Paul would've stayed healthy than we were speaking to a different story Dwight Howard, he just was the guy to be I heard he got. Warriors he got hurt as well. So I mean, don't get me wrong. James. Harden has definitely disappeared in playoff games time and time again but what more did you want me to do? That's the way I look at it get Lebron James I'm pretty sure you've tried. On is not coming here. and. That's my point to as well. You look at these NBA teams only a few teams that are really going to attract those big time superstars, the Lakers Lebron, James because the Lakers that's it. Honestly. I. Think the La Lakers. Got Him because his family was like Yo, we're going to La. Honestly think that we want to go there founded by the L.. Let's go to Houston you I. Think I think it was more like a career move for his son for Ronnie. Ronnie was I. Look I WanNa go to school here and we go on L. A. and Lebron Taibbi away from my family. So we're going to La that's I think I would have done. It was just done 'cause he I've you go back to like when he was trying to make that decision he kept saying you know my family they have lives too and I knew I was like, oh, he going away his baby trying to be one of them stars Allah. You Ain't coming here the bronze here Lebron is probably looking for a house to purchase. He ain't staying here though like. All right. So we talk a lot more about the rockets and I would have liked but you know we're all here in Houston. Houston Rockets, fans we all just kind of just vented there for a moment about the rockets. So we fantasize about world of beginning fired. mean. We're not bad people resigned. Raucous fans. All right. So let's transition here. NFL, has just started. We talk about that a little bit earlier on we do have a couple of games on slate this Sunday that went kind of dive into the bucks and the saints. We talk a lot about this on the radio show who you got in that game I do everything on this will quick picks take my pig and give you a little answer. No I go saints win because they're the better team. I say saints thanks. Yeah. I'm just I'm actually just here for the show that's going to be a great game I'm a are they wait? They're playing in New Orleans, New Orleans Saints Yeah it'll be a lot of fans there. If any, I don't know if they decide they're gonNA be any faster only two teams nfl half ends casing WANNA say Jacksonville. Still. Get so I could be wrong but I think Jacksonville I don't know what they're being. No fans there you know is pretty much a level playing field game. So I do have take Tom Brady and the buccaneers on this one does because What I said last park has. All. Right. So another I WANNA talk about we're not talking about all this one's I. think that are really really going to be good Games, the cowboys and the rams playing La who you got. Chris. I'll go the rams in this one had a disappointing season. I think they'll bounce back really nice I'm never picking the cowboys, Rams Oh. Yes. Yes. Never picking the cowboys Labor obviously durant yes. I want to go with the cowboys on this one. I just think that. They hasn't approve right. We'll talk more about that with Dak Prescott later on by they'd have more proven his game and they're they're going to make a difference packers. Vikings. I dividing in this game somebody podcasting Aaron Rodgers is God's Gift Earth I always. Say That you have an issue with Aaron Rodgers but I'm all for the Vikings and they're going to have a good season and I think that the better team. In. Cambo. I'm realistic. Dobro. What did you say I'm only going to go there and I got packers Oh yes. Also. Off By. Like Rogers. His style he. Do that just does not care. He'll. He'll break your heart Hail Mary. SPAS. I got go with a fourteen highlights. Packers to this one, I think errors and the packers are going to pull this off against. The Vikings. All right. We're going to talk about the Ravens and the browns flew. That's a good one. Upset pick of the week you got the Brown online. Baltimore. Ravens GonNa win this game, but it's going to be really close game. Know what the line is on the game, but is going to be a very close game. I'm talking to three point game but the even the pull it out right? You Know I. I'm pretty sure that Ravens are went but I'll say Brown's just for fun. That's a good. That's a good message up on it be as upset pick just go with the Ravens as well. But the BROWNS, Pardo's teams at look at what the Texans I wanna see what they have to offer on the first game of the season that the Texans were huge disappointment are the browns really gonna live up to talent that they have on that team? I, I. Think they will too but we'll see we'll never know they might go in there and A. By the Texas did. All. Right. So the question when I asked you guys, those are the Games we went over. Kansas City chiefs when in a super bowl arte. Field. Oh okay. Phil yes Kansas City go back to back I mean. Honestly don't think it's GonNa be close. is going to win the chip. It's more of a legacy thing for me. I said this on Podcast, a couple of Times Kansas, city and Patrick. Patrick. mahomes is the most talented. Athlete I have ever seen really i. just I broke when I watch him play. It's amazing. He's I don't know what to compare it to. There's no there's no one ever because you dispatching. People go be comparing other players to. Down the line. When even when he makes an incompletion, he had a couple bathrooms, the Texas one of them should have been picked off honestly. But when he makes a bad throat, it's confusing what happened that you read dissect route what happened because he almost looks great. Yeah. going GonNa be like she just picked the browns. What did you mean I'm going to say like Lamar Jackson has a little chip on his shoulder and he got some the proof and I'm GonNa say the Ravens are going to win. Okay. So he's to feel okay I kind of grew her do I think if you had to take something he had take the field. There are a lot of teams that really look good yet the saints see have the the ravens like she sheila to. Any team on any given Sunday could upset the chiefs in the playoffs. So I think I do have to go to fill don't get me wrong. I. Still Think Petro Home is going to be one of the greatest quarterbacks to play a game but as far as this year I'm GonNa go with the field. That's All right. That's pretty good. Pretty Good I. So who wins the NFL, MVP, this year Challenge with that I must say mahomes. Almost. As easy choice when Kevin Durant there. Okay No. No, that's fine. To I'll say mahomes I i. really do think so but if there was like a wild card, that's a good one I'm GonNa bring a wildcard you did this I would say Watson but bill coach so. Sneak peak what they do anyway if I had to pick I'M GONNA say. I'M GONNA say Tom Brady like old surprise everybody. Tom Brady's the like his final final. MVP. That's good. I think that mahomes a win the MVP. I I'm with you. I was going to pick before the season you acids I would've said Watson just because we've been called to have. Mahomes Jackson. In Consecutive Years Aesthetically that's dope. But Watts not water mahomes is going to win but I wanNA talk about my sleeper pig debt I would say nobody's talking about. For Mvp, he got love last year be has a similar season. I think they'll give it to him. Christian? McCaffrey. They'll give to rent back if there's going to be when it'd be so he's basically which is a little bit easier this year because the way the formless set up, they were Meka playoffs in our firm be MVP. I don't think I don't think. Every pink time soon, I don't I. Agree there's going to be got to do it. It'd be about we talk on the radio show. He's like amazing amazing I'M GONNA go with An. Some more love. Is Not. An easy. Like crews. Is linked. You Go. Air Rogers is definitely going to bounce back I think he looks at his team as being teaneck that can possibly get him into trouble. You know people always mentioned him with already have before with Tom Brady and drew brees and Ben. Rothlisberger. But slightly people like Chris have been Kinda sleep on. And I think he knows that. So I think that this year will be the year if any for him to get back into the MVP conversation so eras my guy from me. All right. The last time WanNa talk about still staying an NFL. Who has approved this year that Prescott or Cam Newton I I think doc. Think. So I think. So particularly because of his whole contract situation. I think a lot of people expected more from the cowboys even Garrod was there but now that you have a Mike. McCarthy. As your coach, you're probably going to get an offense that's going to be more keen towards you in the sense. I definitely think that he has a lot more to approve just. Based off of that, and for the fact that he's expecting more money I think cam is just he kinda gets the coast in a sense. You know people were kind of sleeping on him so. He doesn't really have anything to prove. He can just go out there and play football with it. Interesting for me, I think statistically Dak is going to have the better seasons typically going to put it more yard to you all that Bro who had more to prove. Okay. Calm down calm. View. Sounded Air I. Just think I'm sitting. down. I think statistically Dak is going to have the better season. Okay. But I think that Cam Newton and I also think he has more to prove but also think think Cam Newton have more learning I think dad has more to prove it just for his money I'm talking about I'm always a van a players getting the bread so I hope he has a good season and get the money that he deserves quite frankly I'm not even a cowboys fan like that but I hope he gets his money and he has more to prove because the cowboys are in a situation honestly where. They franchise him again he's basically kirk cousins is a free agent in NFL, which is that we don't really see. So I I don't think that's going to happen based on the season that he will have statistically. I think as Dak Prescott too. But Yeah, do think Cam Newton has approved. Oh, you say you don't think necessarily does do you think CAM has improved assure? No, he's been an NFL MVP. He's been to a super bowl. He's been on the box of wheaties. He's been flipping in end zone. He's been showing superman he's come on now Cam Newton. Guy Deal say I do all right. Two thousand, fifteen NFL MVP. Bring up this time you should have. This debate, I do think that Prescott I think he has more to prove in this situation. I really do dislike you Lou to he has a contract coming up doesn't play well, this year dislike Chris said he's going to be a free agent and I don't think he wants that he wants to get paid and just like you said, they built his team to make sure that Prescott plays well. Sort of the point this is going to be at the year. They don't play well Oh you're the problem is not Mike McCarthy, but this brought him in he wants to be an office girl anyway and you still have Ezekiel. Elliott. Arguably, the best running back in the league, you have your weapons there in the Mark Cooper so. Surely saying that deck hasn't played willing to. PLA- passed. It was like he played pooh-poohing like that but he definitely has an approved this year as far as getting his team, a winning record and gain to the playoffs and actually going somewhere in the playoffs. So I do believe that I do think has an approved to as well though because it wasn't like he was just. Anybody was clamoring to get him in the off season. He was a team away from even may even being picked up are being backup for the fact that the New England patriots picked him up. He's a starting quarterback. I think is behooves him to have a good year this year so that maybe you know he can be with a patriots now trying to think he's in a very good situation where bill belichick obviously. Patriots they find a way. They do I think people are for some reason sleeping on them. They don't think they're a good team for what I've been hearing well, because all opt out. There should they got bill about check man I think they'll find a way 'cause look man that team hand last year. They that good. Let's I'm being served showed it during the playoffs they did they did they got the playoffs. My point is they weren't that good last year any lost more talent this year so we'll look at the division. We've always known that. I think. They could. Yeah I can see them not making. And not being camps as. I can still I think a successful year for it would be a playoff appearance. I don't get Ferdinando. Go Out. All. Right. Thank you. Thank you for being on our our show today.

"Hello and welcome to the sports comedy. Show i'm paul scenario. The creator hosted the show. This is another edition of talk. Radio is friday december. Eleven in today's thing will be nfl week. Fourteen preview big games. Sunday coming up also grabbed five-star. Pick for five star. Bekker's do pretty good to share my in formats against the spread. So you'll get that the show. We're going to look some of those games. I william scott by looking thursday night. Football gotta good football game last night review now. Have you been to the website. Lately raiders page bills by the funny football briefs. Those are the big stories right now on the website remember. The website is the official home of the sports comedy. Show retreat check it out and i do have official homepage now. They're sports dot net. You will see them earth. It's ball on top radio on the bus route network all right. Let's get started so we had a game last night. It was thursday night football rams and the patriots patriots played their second game in the stadium for in four days. So did not have come out and play well. They didn't come out and play pretty giving me the play pretty bad honest with you. It was rammed from the beginning to the end of this one win. Twenty four to three. So let's talk about where it's going. It's going with this loss year bills who the patriots. Pretty much done deal. I'll be happy. Not they're done. They're six seven hours fallback. Low five in talk to busy with my on. The buffalo team sucks. Keep trying busy. This is just a bad be cam. Newton was not able to get going into the running game was gone rance defense which is good which we knew was good did everything they were to do and If you look at the numbers cam newton only one hundred nineteen dollars. Got sacked four times the rushing game for the pats was non existent seventy two yards all al-ram's jerry goff finds the end only through one hundred thirty seven yards game cam. Akers was demand candidate ramp one hundred and seventy one so the rams are a loser in the past and the season the past the past season has come to an end. The forces of evil have got to them. They are the loser myself. I am pats fan. I don't like to see but gonna call it the way it was or is tough year for the pats losing. Tom brady before the season. And the other name. I wanted to get out. They had their share of injuries. Plug and play. Bill was not ever stay up with everybody. So it's time to say with the patriots. Really are this year that is already just. That's about the best way to sum up the patriots season. Right there from you on that one all right. Let's go ahead and take a look at some of these games like said stay to five star. Pick good five star. Pick line for everybody. But we're going to start by is looking at some of these games and doing preview. there are a couple of good games. let's start here with the kansas city at miami so this should be an exciting game to watch. Everybody knows kansas city problem. The best team in football eleven one question is there in. Miami is how good is miami. And that's what that's what this means writing. Get down to. Why was got good defense. Kansas city he's got great offense so that's gonna be the showdown in this game is gonna be the is going. Be miami's defense. Can't miami's defense key. Patch mahomes undertake. Can they keep them the twenty one or twenty four points if they do you think they got a good shot at this one. Big number on the spread. Seven miami is ninety three eighty s against the spread. And when you got seven points home. That's generous offering kansas city. Who winds of their last. Four games only one by each game just by a couple of points. I think the combined four games. It's been a total of thirteen points. So yes they win. Yes patrick mahomes doing at the end the end up being close games. They can't really put anybody. I like miami at home was on this one. Seven points is an awful lot is probably going to be close. Game quests news world to outcome will to be able to stay up with this if not the got fits on on on on backing up ready to go. I wouldn't be surprised if you see fits before over bid in kansas city to take that but i i see miami. Stay close to home and fighting back devante. Parker gonna have to come up big for for the dolphins. We know every everybody. Also ball's gonna come up in wanting to get into those guys in kansas city. But i i like miami here at home. It's a good number nine and three against the spread. I looked for them to at least a within the spread of missile. All right now. Here's a game that i've been looking at all week in. I just don't know how to phrase it that we're gonna phrase it just lie. S football the stadium once again. It's time for. Nfl come to leading to the desktop. Las vegas raiders. This week we have the second place four indianapolis colts. The las vegas raiders. Seven five second place in the afc silent on from the desk star. Imperial march lee coming raiders ravens of binding and need to get back on the winning one last week. That for that lost two games before the raiders. Desperately need this one at. They're going to stay in the plant freeze but the playing against a really good colts team colts who won last week in houston and have won the last three of four look. Good store with the colts defense. They've got really good defense now. Both these teams are both seven five against the spread. The raiders home seem to be much better team on the road and it is about the desktop. It is about an imperial march so this one a lot of the people. A lot of the analysts are sticking with the colts because of their good defense. The big question is the raiders have not been running the ball while all the josh jacobs has not been a factor at all cars had been forced to run. Heathrow that's not his is forte or his game. He likes to throw the ball. So we know generali's get open. We we all henry rogers The question is the raiders to put together a running game to be able to keep the colts off the field and try to get a little took possession time under the belt if they're able to establish the run. Then things might get a little harder you know the other side of the quotes move down to run are gonna run the ball and then they're going to rely on philip rivers to complete the down the downward passes the third down completions and he's been doing it surprisingly well all year. Hell honor this game is here in. Las vegas raiders. I on their playoff hopes are on the line on this game. They beat this game. And i think i think the raiders win this game and even though i don't like them at the very end to make the playoffs. I don't think they roll over yet. I liked the raiders at home. Here it's getting to be a well. Played game on their defense. Which is all that good either is going to need to find a way to slow down the run game of the colts. And they're going to have to get to to philip rivers if you can get drum and sack of the few times that throws him off your game. They're going to need to do that. They're gonna have to come up defensively to allow their offense to wrong and get some things going. So i like the raiders here at home at home at the start of their playoff hopes on the line. Let's see what they can do. The next one is the saints after alpha since ten to first place in the south eagles. Three one win which up everything third place in the nfc. Blida out there still in the hot just because that team that the visit so bad. It's only two games out all everybody's talking as if they're season's over a probably we is saint should role in this one tastes hill has been doing everything right. Big favorite seven point favorites. That has a lot of points to give on the road but new orleans who've won nine in a row no reason for them to slow down here. They got to keep the gas on the pedal i think they roll over philadelphia carson winston store here. He's not going to start going to give it to earth. Which is i think it's the rent call that you've done this three games ago. Let's see how it does. Give the kid a chance for the love of god. He's not a bad quarterback in unfortunately it's up against a hello good. Thanks team both defensively and offensively. They are the complete team. Probably the most complete team in the nfc my opinion. So it's not gonna be pretty for philadelphia. I liked to sincere. I like them to cover a little. Bit cheap rolling. Let's look at our the ravens. The browns probably the biggest game of the week right here on both these teams fighting for the playoffs. Brownsville the inside ravens on the outside bid. This is a must win for the rains. Are the games in cleveland cleveland. From playing damn good ball they are nine and three in second place. Baltimore seven five in. They finally one last week. But things are as good for baltimore's things as people would like to see cleveland. How the big showdown with the titans. Which they came out they won the bigger levin than tennessee. Get back in. This is going to be an exciting game. And everybody expected to see the rodman. You are to see the run now. Baltimore's got dobbins back and edwards. You're going to see the run from baltimore. No you're going to see the run from jobs. And if they get involved which they get to really do so much. They're very much warranty but baker mayfield finds a way to make things happen on on the On the throwing end as well. So i don't yes. You can running but i would not be surprised if this game gets a lot of points. Now when these two teams pray normally. They're not the high scoring games in each of the last three games have not been closed decided by thirteen points or more. So you don't know what to expect on this. I would like to think it's going to go down on the final drive because these two teams are tooth and nail with each other. how the games in cleveland. I like leaving here. i like cleveland. Their defense is the greatest. They're gonna give up the give them give them points but every time they do they have a way coming right back and i look for them to take control of this game. Kinda like they did. Last week he gets tennessee. No will be pretty in. Won't be a blow out and you'll see both these teams it into the end. But i i like i liked cleveland. The lines bounced around the Have started off the favorite. Now baltimore's a slight favor. Need the case. I don't the spread will become an issue in this game again. The ravens have given up one hundred yards rushing in the last five seven games. That's his favorites the browns game. But when it's all said and done. I think you're gonna see the the the end zone is going to be through passing in. I think that favors may feel an. I think it favors the browns. I liked the browns in this one. I just exciting game. Probably the game. That has the most implications on the playoff race. This win and also the raiders in in miami those two games will have a lot of playoff implications. They are both from the fcc. But this i liked the browns. I think they're going to do it at home. Okay we got one more game. We're gonna take a look at you and that's we pittsburgh buffalo before we do you know. The season is almost over this week. Fourteen after this only be three weeks left. We made it this far. It's been a very tough year because covid. Nfl his is made it very clear with an iron fisted. The shows gonna go on. Some teams have been hard blows than others. But everybody's made through it and The the season hit his keep marching forward. I give the nfl credit. They took in their the took in their first show of criticism. There is a couple of games. Maybe that shouldn't have been played. He made it very clear that this show is going to go on in. We're getting keep going forward. Hopefully we don't run into problems in the playoffs. Were with the super bowl as far as cove it although we might just simply can't tell because now we're coming into the hardcore time winner bit and so far so good so as much as everybody wants to criticize the nfl. The they've kept their the train going the right direction in. I think it needs to be noted that the nfl is is done. The right thing by keeping the track on trade even though they've had to deal with all these sight stories tough issues this last pittsburgh at buffalo. Now this'll be your mark he game of the week. It's either the two biggest teams as far as the records. Go and this is going to be sunday night football. This should be excitement. Plus now there's something going on with the pittsburgh steelers that you haven't heard much lately lasting very. They've developed a bad habit and they're bad. Habit is the receivers are dropping. The ball clear kennedy should be caught. It happened in the last game. They dropped the ball. Seven times blatantly. Clear catches should have been caught. Ben rothlisberger gets the ball off of the nobody anybody else. And he hits his targets. I don't know why the steelers receivers have been driving the ball like this last game seven times. That is the most in the nfl the dropping the ball over thirty times this season. They're the most in the nfl by ten is just it's an. It's an ugly habit. And i think it may come into play again this week in buffalo. Don't how bad the weather's going to be can't be war in lawrence and buffalo. That's for sure. I think you play this game now on the other side boy. Everybody's praising that josh allen the within his stature in the top five the quarterback and People are looking at him as a possible. Mvp candidate army good for him in good for them. They got the receiving corps. It's not just stepping. Did a little briefly gotta keep an eye on these guys and then the running game which isn't all that great between moss and single. Terry the get it done. And that's important thing. Is you got to get it done. And even josh allen has to run for which he doesn't time-to-time the get the running game d'or now the thing that's been suspect of the bills and i think people are going to be honest. Is there defense defense. Hasn't been the good last time. They were purely defensive team but they're not letting team and when your offense opened things up your defense is going. Give it up a little more points nonetheless. This is going to be a fun game here on sunday night. Football in buffalo. I like buffalo. I like him a lot. I think they're the better team. And i was listening to so the espn announcers and doing some of the cvs previews and stuff. They all think pittsburgh severity nathan or more complete. I don't believe it i. I don't think pittsburgh's is great is an eleven one team. They've had they had a rogue generous opponent this year. That's why they got to know the finally lost last week to us mediocre gene. I see more downside for the steelers. I like Buffalo at home on the sunday night football. I think they're on the rails on the search to winning the first division. Got twenty or twenty five years. Everything seems to be going the right way. Their defense is going to need to step up. And they're gonna have to me pittsburgh to more forks. There's and. I think they do that. I think they put the pressure on and i. I don't see pittsburgh kevin where the win. They're going to get some big plays in the steelers. Reading gave needs to come around there couple of commerce and a couple of their other covert last week. But i believe everybody back and i think the bills to keep this game is the bills defense. It's going to have to come up by doing so. That's going to up the offense. I think you're gonna see the big plays from josh allen you gonna find stephan digs or call beasley in the end zone They've got the they just got the complete team. I'm a big fan of the bills in this one. And i think the bills are going to be your winter here on sunday night football. Okay guys. it's time for that five star. Pick again nine four on the season. Not a bad call and i'm gonna do it on one of these games. That are review. That's right on the on the the five star trek. I'm gonna go ahead and go with the new orleans saints their seven. There are seven point dive philadelphia that the best philly guy going from in this game. Third home the saints are just on another level I think that raw in they cover we of course have to win. But the point is good in philadelphia at times can come up in do a needs to be done especially at home. But i don't see if this week. I see some point. Whether it's in the third or fourth floor the saints taking control of this game and being it'll be more than just a one touchdown win so you're five star. Pick is going to be the saints to to cover against the eagles and that's it. That's been your adjusted of talk radio for the nfl week. Fourteenth review my. Name's paul salerno. I have created and hosted the show. When you get a chance check out the website sports comedy show dot net. Have a good day. We'll catch your monday monday. We're gonna do some monday morning quarterback that's always my favorite show because i can look back and tell it the way it was or the way it is or the way the paul season. Hey how catch next week.

And that's the rawness that you get with us because we all know you don't it on this show but if you listen to the podcast on the other hand we do at it so if you're listening on the podcast you will never know that i played the wrong intro sounder. The magic of editing. But we don't do video editing that's for that's for fancy people we do it all live one cut. My name is tim. I'll be your captain for this journey into east sports and alongside me as always is my best friend. My brown friend. It's a nuke what's up dude. Just looking at some potential breaking news going on twitter. As you're reading the intro here what's going on dollar in cloud nine possibly making a change benching floppy it looks like for poise. Right tennessee. that change. Come not to say that boys isn't deserving but when floppy made the switch from csi thought dent would be a little bit longer though also a little shocking that they've made him do the transition from cs because it's not like he was like an all star for their cs side either. Yeah i think the assumptions if you come from cs you're good enough to play at this point. I mean he's made it a while. We're finally in general valerie. We're finally seeing the The cs pixie. Dust fade a little bit like you. I think that carried you this far. But i think the boys are finally losing that respect and became can change that. If you comes in dominates yeah. He's a little different. But yes i would not put floppy and nbk on the same level of what you mean. There's no spots in maps named after floppy. No no there's one before we have an nba case by in a map invalid. Give it time give it time. He's i got officially gopro remember. He's just practicing and streaming at the moment the terek method. Yup all right. I will say this. And i don't know if it's going on. I don't i think it's just in my headphones. I hear crackling. I think that is a byproduct of my son taking my headphones and throwing them. So i don't think that's going on the recording if it is though apologies but i don't think it is. I think it's all in my head. I just wanted to get that out there before. Someone's like hey you know your audio is making noises. I know but i don't think it is. I think it's in my head so we'll get through it. We'll power through last. Time will be a distraction. A niche last episode. I made the not so bold claim that i could qualify for the olympics. And you said. Give me some summers where we're looking at summer. Just because we're on topic and it's right around the corner. I think what july twenty third does that sound about right somewhere around there see. Nbc commercials all the time while watching watching other sports so some summer olympic sports here that i have for you that think. So here's the thing. I am not saying i could go tomorrow and qualify right my same give you four years. Yes lately taken care of like just focus on right if he lon. Musk wanted to sponsor me. And being like i'll give you like one hundred twenty one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You know. your wife doesn't have to work. Don't have to worry about the kids. You don't have to worry about anything like you are hooked up right. You're you'll get the trainers you'll get whatever but for four years. All you're doing is focusing on qualifying for the olympics. I i think i could do that. Easily what sports easily. So i have a handful here for you. You have a handful. you can handful. I mean you don't want to put all your eggs more than you start your journey down this path. I wanna remind you. Every olympic athlete is doing this. Fulltime in every olympic athlete has been doing this full time for but they have other life. They have other life distractions. I am not having. Okay gimme your sports. I'm just going to give you. Yes no as you go k. Archery shooting no. I feel like i could. I mean not not physical so that's a huge huge plus for archery shooting archery would take like years to perfect just like shooting a gun perfectly. That's why have years again. All lows of k. I get it i get it. You watch a lot of lord of the rings. You're feeling this isn't just going out on the weekend. This is waking up in the morning eating and breathing it different than your hunter main in. Well i don't have a hunter main. He's dead to me. Let's see here. I have some other ones rugby. Only because i feel like any american playing rugby and i don't care on what level is typically just like your normal dude anyways that just kind of casually does it like i. I feel like if i would get on that team. Like every one of my teammates on the rugby olympic teams would be like. Yeah dude we do. We did the same exact bit that you're doing like elon. Musk sponsors all of us to do this. So because there's no american takes one advantage is you're already on the bigger side in the sense if you just both with muzzle in like really worked out in like may you know all of a sudden. You're forty went from whatever it is now to like a solid four or five four six four seven may longshot there. A lot of websites. I was reading or saying badminton. Not badmin- nah i think i would get way dominate like. It would take three years to finally be able to be averaged point. That's what i'm saying like no let alone. That is just qualifying. Like i'm again. I'm not. I'm not expecting the metal. It's just to qualify to say. I qualified but that feel like the bad man. Crowd are like the people like their dexterity. You would never be able to get that level movement online. Do badminton put some respect on the the badminton crowd. I don't think i could do that. rowing i feel like that is something i could catch up to put me in the middle of the boat. I don't need to be the commander. I don't need to be the caboose. You put me in the middle and just tell me to row workout the arms k. My forearms are already worked out daily. Sometimes twice a day sometimes twice a day both arms. I throwing community to me is a community. That's been doing price. As they're they're all like rich kids that grew up in crew and they visit true. Five years would have to move to hartford or something like that. If i had to do like just even like thinking about how good those people probably are gonna throw that for me again. This is my yes. No right so not to discourage you i wanna put that in. The tential may be rolling again. It's just not like. I don't need like you were saying like with badmin- i don't need to have like dexterity. It's little no but you had to be the top four people in the world in that sport in a four year time span four top four in your country right so in the us right which is obviously good. At most of these sports. I could do it. I think i could do. I could could sneak my way in a rowing gaming for twenty five years. We'd never been top foreign any game. We play again. Never just four years no worries about it. What did you do your first last couple years of high school in first few years of college. Oh i was a semi professional gamer sir in rainbow six vegas one and two must. I remind the putting your time in the best you can do is the that's qualifying. I never said the olympics. I never vying for the olympics with the rainbow sixteen you would have been one of the top five players in the us to qualify to my qualifying for the actual olympics. Are you trying to qualify for the olympic trials toured. You're trying out to make it for. You could qualify. Boxing boxing because no real boxer goes to the olympics. And if logan with throat logo paul can do it. He proves that all you need is money and time to be good at boxing again. And you don't have to say like you have to be one of the best because the best. Don't go to the olympics. These are already like the scraps of the boxing world that goes to the olympics. It's like college and stuff like that. Yeah i'm gonna put that in the hard no catalogue. Foxing is so overrated. They're barely athletes. Barely athletes barely. Now it's going to be like a podcast versus something else. Boxing matches about to go hype in the on. Pay per view here in the next row. If a bunch of tick talkers and youtubers can all of a sudden hype. Boxing like they're legit. I have no concern. That i might be all is like six five two hundred twenty pounds in. He's fought in rigged matches where they're being paid off to. Hey let's let this match go the distance like if you're thinking of floyd mayweather couldn't have just dominated him in probably kayode in first round you've got to be full and that's forty year old boy. That's they're not going to the olympics. I don't need to worry about floyd mayweather in the olympics. Floyd mayweather i just worry. About the other chumps. Who are trying to get into boxing. Boxing i could go in blindfolded and get in and last but not least and before you throw this away fun fact. I actually did this for a very short period of my life. a quest equestrian can kill the horror student. I know i have done that at one point in my life so out of all of these where i actually have. You've ridden a horse or you've done this question as a sport i've done. I've trained horse horses to do like the obstacles and the jumps and like the sidesteps. And all this. You're on the horse. You're not like i was on the horse i wrote. I did horse writing for like a summer. So i'm just saying young. Tim could dig deep inside now. That would be my least favorite. Because i would have to deal with a horse which is disgusting. They're disgusting animals. So i wouldn't want to do that anyways but either way what i'm saying is elon. Musk or jeff bezos. Who's no longer the. ceo of amazon. He's got free time. He's just worrying about a space program. You hook me up. I will get a tattoo on my chest of your brand spa. We can sponsor the hell out of this. Maybe mess around and get get a medal. I don't know i'm just going in there. For could qualify. Maybe mess around and get a medal in boxing. Our best chances when eastwards becomes an olympic sport. Yeah but by the time. That's the case you know olympics have gone south anyway so we'll have to worry about much anyways so that's just didn't say like basketball like i said from mind if it involves like running like actual running not just like rugby where i'm sprinting into someone's head not a chance i've never been. A runner. Never will be a runner in all of these sports. You didn't mention the only one that you've actually played which is hockey well. No that's this summer hockey's winter sun. Getting a winter winters. Different winter could do like. I said bob terrible save for next. Yeah we'll we'll save it. But i do i can. I can also crush some winter olympics. To if i i'm not afraid of that kelly and i had this conversation just so you know we're going to talk to you. I mean every look. I think everyone overhypes how difficult it is to do. Something with all you have to do is focus and learn on that and just be a master. You just watch luca way too much recently. No this was long had for myself for a very long time. I think half the battle is confidence and people just lack it i. I could make the olympics again. If i didn't have to worry about stuff and all i could do is focus. Easy peasy divorce the family if only if only all right so let's get into some some east sports though in urge because everyone is already rooting for me. Everyone is already rushing to our patriots to give us money so i can qualify for the olympics. We have land counter strike back with. Im cologne. it is the i. I believe i saw on twitter. The first counterstrike land event in roughly fifteen months crazy. That's that is i. Don't think in the history of counterstrike has ever gone that long without land matches more than one of the first to to stop land matches and then they're also one of the last to kind of come back. I feel you know. It is not a bad thing i think they they kind kinda saved it also for the right time. Like this is an amazing event to showcase your talent in you know. Bring these guys to the big stage so fifteen months just insane to think it's been that long like how much has changed in our personal lives in fifteen months. Your father of two now. Father won it for a year older. We've been working from home for a year and a half. You've gave birth to a new. Pc so like a lot has happened. In fifteen months in counterstrike has had one patch they had on ancient they added one map in about five other features that people hate so look at the east force. Landscape has changed in fifteen months. I mean you have a new competitor in the scene with dollar which was not even around you know pre bid so now i think at that point it was still project a or whatever they were. Were calling it in. I don't hate it. Valerie grew on me though. I hated the name of valor. It's at the start but definitely grown on me But yeah no so you have. Im cologne like you were saying. A lot's changed however going into this. And i think you're right. I think there was. This was strategically like waited on. Because they could've teams have been in e- you for long enough and they've been quarantining off and on and they could have quarantined for a land event. I mean we saw legal legends do world's forever ago and that was a land event so i think they could have done it but i think you are right. I think they wanted to wait for a meaningful event. No knock to you know beyond the summit or or anything like that. I think they wanted to have a meaningful big major like event and so. That's i think it's a perfect way to kick off the returning back to land with cologne under percent i agree and you know it's nice that it's a little bit more of a long form event to with the play in round that just took place and ended today in now heading into the main event like you're right it has a really major esque kind of feel in look. We're walking away with now after today. The top fourteen out of the fifteen ranked teams Remaining in this event and the only one missing from it is oh gee who took a loss again today. Unfortunately eliminated but they You know the only ones we have. We literally have the best in the world going head to head in one more. Could you ask for ad out of an event. Like i mean this is probably going to be better in terms of overall ranking than even the majors going to be able to produce right. There's going to be Region locks and things like that like you're not gonna have an event where the top fourteen out of fifteen ranked teams in the world all competing in so it's it's something special and and to be in cologne Means even more so if they waited for that reason. It's really paid off after what's happened in this playing around so you mentioned that some teams have already been eliminated Og being one of them. Which like you said. That might be the more shocking of them. But not i mean oh. Jeez one of those teams where. They've fluctuated so much. I don't know what the what were your expectations of oji going into this oleg follow laundry closely and he's been hyping up. Og allot he talked about. I think he predicted them to win the event. If i'm not mistaken in so i had. I had higher hopes for them. I didn't think they were going to win it. But i thought they were playing really good right now. And you've seen what a hot team can do. I mean think of just mouse sports every six months. You know all of a sudden go on one of these streaks where they don't loosen event Elegy was looking really good. But i'm losing too. Big big is such a good team. You know it's it's the once. They find their footing and as they've done at times right. They kind of tend to fall off and then come back just as a core. Five big is really impressive to me. So i don't look at taking a loss to them as like We got eliminated by like a lower ranked team the real talk ten team in the world. tough out for for. Oh gee that that you have to play them at that point in time but hey that's part of it like you gotta win earlier in the event when when you're supposed to essentially and so Yeah no no shame. Losing too big renegading using to renegade renegades like you got to buy by renegades yes one went to ot but that's the one that's going to hurt right. Like renegades is sitting. And i think barely the top fifty right now and so. Can i be honest with you. I forgot they had a counter strike team still. I don't think you're alone in that sentiment sentiment. Honestly like i really don't like just because they dropped their core roster as er and all these guys that were you know from greyhound to renegades and they were there for so long and then they kind of disappeared and they've come back in this way and you know this is very renegades light to do something like this it almost like it doesn't matter what rostered is this is a very renegades s kind of move you know and so They got a huge upset. I know this has got to be pretty devastating for oj to lose this one. You know you get knocked down by big to You feel like you kind of have a win either. Way with b. Or renegades being your matchup you get lucky and get renegades you know in that matchup which i don't know if that's lucky they're probably both Roughly right around the same. And you take a two loss like. There's just not much to be obsessed. It hurts even more when day was your your underperformer in that. Two laws right you. You need him to be the all star that he is in when he doesn't show up you know it requires everybody else to maybe do more than they're either capable of or press a little bit more than they need to. And so when you're star players not fragging anybody's capable of getting upset and that's what happened here. I think the other team that. I had a lot of attention on. Don't know necessarily expectations but attention on the less were evil genius. Obviously being one of the only na teams at this event that i think for a big no knock combat news bears but you're here off of technicality of what n. As been for the last fifteen months then you have complexity which i guess. Technically i don't know not technically. They're not even though okay. Are they like officially. I don't know where they're officially falling on. Like h ltv. I think they're like full-blown they're not a full blown. Eu rostrum but they are you right. I don't know if it's you already had liquid in the main event right so for the plans evil genius was kind of like you're only shining hope for for any fans to even show a glimmer now evil genius. They've been on the rough spot they've been on the outside looking in. I think they've made a quite a few roster changes that weren't necessarily their choice right. They've had players moving over to valerie players retiring early so never a good. Look when you're an org because then you're shuffling for your own roster spots trying to throw things together that he has not had a good event. Since october of last year since october of last year. I am north america. They placed third last event they won was august of last year. Esl cologne north america. They got first place right. Announcement is completely split during kovin. So it's been a long time so since evil genius has has been good right like last time they were good. They had ethan and tarik both on that roster. It's a long time ago And i really do not have like overly high expectations like meet. You hasn't been competing in forever. He was sitting on n. B. roster wasn't doing anything right like they weren't really competing. They had constant turnover like he. He just he just hasn't played competitive tier one. Cs in a longtime stanislaw. as much. as i i really liked the guy i honestly want him to be successful. It feels like we kinda hit these walls with him as i g l. Where your team can be good. But they don't have the ability to be great threes underperformed And then you know obio is a a young talent still kind of work it just this team seems like it's still missing something for and i think they can still improve with for where they are today. But i'm not shocked that they're they're not moving on. I don't know if i'm stanislaw mentally. I don't know where i'm at right now right. Because you are a veteran player on a roster that i don't know if they ever they did okay. I'm looking at it right now. They did end up hitting number one last year and they were in the top five for a while then like we just mentioned they took that steep dive and i mean are still. They're they're they're out of the top twenty at the moment and i don't see them getting back anytime soon. To top ten you know even top fifteen level. It all went to shit for them when they had to go playing from a kind of hopping over to the eu side. To start practicing. And i don't think if i recall like i don't think they necessarily wanted to move over thi e you weren't they wanted to last teams to go over there and kinda almost felt like in my opinion it was almost like would was the last team to go over there liquid. I don't recall either way. Just hasn't it's been a long time since they've done anything. I don't know if i'm stanislaw if i'm sitting here after this this loss getting eliminated early yet again with evil geniuses and again you lost a mouse sports which is a good team at the moment so nothing be too upset about but again a loss is a loss. Like we've learned that in any game right valor and counterstrike. It doesn't matter if you're stanislaw your veteran player looking at this roster where do you go an. Acs what options do you have. I'm not saying every any time. There's a veteran player who struggles in a. You have to make a jump over to valor while you're stocks are still high. But if you're stanislaw like what do you. What do you do right now. You know the thing for him is fortunately. Unfortunately individual performance hasn't been bad. He's actually doing decent on the roster. He's not like he's not. When i say the reason he's not the reason they're failing in the sense of from a performance standpoint the issue that i have is like i don't feel like the other guys around him or elevating the level that they need to play at for them to be dominant roster like sirkin breeze were hard carries for e. g. when they had to other really good fragments in ethan enteric right but sirkin brees found a way to stand out now. Granted you've lost those two guys so more of the burden is gonna fall on sirkin breeze to do that. But they've fallen off edo since those changes were made like. They just haven't been the same players in. So i'm just i don't know you're right. I don't know where he would go ultimately. There's just very few options other than like switching over to valerie. if that's you know an option it's it's a shame because it definitely seems like with your a na there's like three two or three teams and that's it if you're talking about wanting to staying in tier one there are options for you if you're willing to fall down and work your way back up but not everybody. Has that kind of patients or the ability to do that. As are there even enough players to do that too though. Like if you're honestly thinking. I wanna down just kind of keep my skills there. Keep them warm so when a roster spots open up but in order to do that like you said you have to at least have some competent teammates that you feel confident around you right or not gonna get plucked by another oregon at some point right like if you have if you go down and you find that one superstar near like. Hey i'm gonna work with this guy. Because i know he's bad ass then you're also thinking. How long is the clock ticking. Before he does get pulled up by liquid or an eeg who's making a roster move at some point in so yeah i mean there's just the options become really tough if it's not working on on one of the handful of of nfl teams. That are you know. Even in the picture assads it is to say there's just there's just very few the only region that's having a tougher time right now. This weekend is brazil. you know they. They only had. They only have one team in the main event. And that's fear who was already in the main event i think they had three opportunities If i'm not mistaken to to get in with mib our team one that might have actually been it You know but both getting eliminated obviously might be are being the headliner name They felt you know to to renegades to You know that it's surprising because this nfl region. When we consider brazil north america was a really strong region for like five four five solid years in counterstrike thinking back to the luminosity days even when cloud nine a good team not the best but they were a good like is this consistent consistently good team at least Tiny qualify for majors right. They only give far number. They could qualify much walks. Have be in right. You knew they were going to be in those events like you were going to have a couple of teams representing you like now. You're just kind of banking on on liquid to carry the load here and then obviously fury. I'd like that. That's really it and it's not like i have a ton of hope or faith in liquid. Maybe win one of these events right now but you know brazilian cs instead of comparing them to like within a. I would look at it more like french. The french scene. Where both of them kinda did it to themselves in the sense of the only kind of stuck around within their own scene and tried to build rosters up with other brazilian free agents. And then what happened. Same thing with the french. cs is eventually. It's just everyone regurgitate of the same name like everyone has played with everyone. This person doesn't like that person. Well this guy is only going to play with this guy and so it's like you're seriously like sitting here trying to put together a puzzle pieces at just don't fit anymore will listen exactly what ends up happening then. Right fallen goes to north america. You have zero. Who joined international roster now roster lists at the moment but like group kind of is going to suffer because they're going to have to go to other regions even compete so then you're going to hurt your region even more because the names that are big able to build teams or not even playing in your region anymore and so yeah. I mean but both the n. a. and brazil or of struggling. You know it's just been it's been a struggle in. This event was really really no different but for some of the teams. That did highlight. If we want to end on a on a happy note mouse sports continued their uptick. I thought mao sports looked exceptionally well defeating evil geniuses there I think for the last match of the day was what it was but they defeated them to nuke was a close one for a little bit on the first half but either way i thought mouse looked really well between Robson frozen. I think both of them actually looked well. It was good to see mouse kind of picking this up. Because i know we always joked about it where it's like you always know. It's the end of the year when mao sports kinda starts playing well but it seems like so far the majority of twenty twenty one mouse has been looking really well. The move for dexter which a lot of people including myself questioned has paid off crazy dividends for him. This is this the opposite of the stanislaw effect. That i'm talking about right now. Is dexter comes onto a team and all of a sudden rops is putting up career performances right now. He looks like one of the top three best players in the world. He had a one point six plus rating today in in both maps combined against e. g. frozen also competing at a really high level. Like your best players have become elevated Since dexter joins that roster acorss been a think another fantastic addition as oppor biomass was or beam. Awesome pronouncing the name wrong. I know i am. You know got kinda tossed away. From the whole fanatic. Situation in interface situations found a a home fanatic. Refacing can't even remember now. One of the two of us found a home here in so this roster is has looked really good you know they did. Take that early to Beating to nip in nip panel him. I feel like fairly convincingly in that matchup they rebounded really nicely and losers in show that they belong in that top sixteen to to compete this weekend and speaking of nip they looked again device was able to stand out which i think is. We've been kind of waiting for some of these performances from him right. He's he's almost playing that passive lebron james kind of role i feel like since he's been on nip where i know on the guy and i know i can take over but i'm trying to fit in with the new kid right. He doesn't wanna come in and make the bold joke right away. He's going to feel for the water. See where everyone's at but they have convincingly advanced and it was it was nice to see like the really good teams play. Well that's what. I was hoping for right. I didn't wanna see like nip vitality. You know big these guys drop games really early and then. They're scratching and clawing their way into this event. Coming in maybe a little bit less confidence like the best teams showed out in. You could tell this meant a lot to to make it to that main stage. So you did have nip advance did have vitality when all the first phase game for the for the first the top bracket right in the plains phase. Was the one team that surprised me to to oh complexity with a was just getting to them. Because that's the biggest surprise right is like they looked really good and it was twist they know we. We've been kind of making fun of this transition a little bit that. He's he's had but he likes showed up and it showed up in a really big way for them in that complexity matchup in you know two only complexity in that situation. I think means a lot because phase only been in like hard fought matches like it feels like every match. You know if they're losing it was closed but they just found a way to fail of. This was good to get that w. in and get in a convincing way especially on new where it was like sixteen five sixteen six game like they handled them nicely. Twist did everything he needed to do. He looked like an all star. Almost felt like for the first time on phase. He he was able to to kind of elevate his game to that level. So so like we said with all of my ser- to being the summit. I just it's still makes plain. Here's a fun thing about it. Those you're right. he still makes plays. They're still performing well. But it's like where do you go right like is. It seems like a stopgap rate. Like is he honest like are they even like. Hey this is honest. A chance that he stays on the roster right. Like is this even. Are they remotely thinking the next three events like. Hey you know what this could work out. Maybe we can convince all of my sturdy. Stay stick around full-time. I just don't think he's there anymore like mentally. I don't think he's there for a time spot. Yelling my heart tells me this is just like he's going to be here for a few events until they find like a long term replacement but then of the day you never know right like all the ca- take in those few events phase looked really good. You know phase comes out and looks really good in cologne and makes a semi-final or makes a final Who knows what that does to the confidence level. How that would reenergize all off nicer like when olaf left. Things was struggling department already. It's not like he left at a prime time in his comeback in these pits. Poor times like he left in tough times he's come back know in tough time so If they were to start winning like yeah that could definitely be a long term solution. He's he's not bad. You know if anybody's looking at it was like damn like olaf needs to go because he's just old like he's not dad like he actually make some some really clutch place warm. He's not gonna probably top frag. Forum is a long term solution to see like the roster move that i think it just depends on his motivation right like how much does let's say i just think like you said the tough part right. They keep winning. Sure you know like. I'll always like hey if i'm on the fence as long as we're winning i'll always be on the right side of the fence but it's so rough you can't have your guy just constantly bail out every time. Like how long have we been saying this about fanatic right with j w and crims like things are really good at random points and then they get really tough and we're like oh they need to make a change like they need some young bloods in there and then all of a sudden they spike again to top five like. It's possible that you could do it with not your heart being one hundred percent in it but we have to see it over a period of time and this is just you know one two events. So let's see how they do how they ended up faring. Making the main event is nice but if you get knocked out first round doesn't really matter at the end of the day rate so they do have a chance for that tomorrow because the main event which is actually kicking off tomorrow so by the time you are listening to this matches boot probably already finished because it is starting bright and early six. Am for us here in the central time zone You have the first match of the day. Which i believe is mouse. Sports versus gambit. So what a hell of a way to kick off the liquid versus nip same. Same time okay. So those are intense matches to start gambit mouth sports nip liquid lots to look into for those main events. We don't have to dive too far into it but predictions man can give you a finals prediction. Are you looking for a winner here. No you just do finals or teams making out because the way this is so you have group a group. B double eliminations on both sides and four. Make it out to the playoffs. Okay so let me give it. Let's go with our playoff picture right now and then guess six technically make it in the playoffs for from each side. You said right. No top three from inside out three from inside okay. So from grew group. I'm gonna take gambit nip and second half that bottom half is so hard to pick. I'm gonna take now sports. Okay my heart thinking also g. tube but i wanna go with now and say mouse loses that first game and then they can roll through. Never bet on g to right like you never wanna bet your heart on gt. Because it's too hard right now. be. I'll go navy vitality. Gimme a heroic. 'cause they're gonna be playing from a dorm room that might be kind of convenient for them with that whole kovic situation. One of their players tested positive. I don't think they'll be playing their first round match in the arena. I think they're going to be playing it remotely if i'm not mistaken or what. I was what i thought. I read I think that is a little bit of an advantage in a way of of nerves. That a lot of those players have not had to feel in a big game. Matchup especially for that team like that team is not built with a bunch of former land players. In fact like kadian refresh polly has a little bit of land experience. The rest of these guys are fairly young so might be an early advantage for them to be playing from the hotel room. So we'll go navy vitality and heroic to advance at a b. So we're very similar here in group. Hey i would say gambit. I would say mouse and my third is where. I'm a little bit more iffy on. I think it's going to come out either. Verdict pro or big know nip. I not not right now. Say right after july four. That's rough. yeah. I just have no faith in any counter strike at this point though right especially hard like because like. When was the last time we even saw liquid. Play like this type of caliber. We saw liquid play. They were in some. Na qualifier armar event where they not like not that long ago but like those are. I mean hell. They've probably had were better than that. Event for liquid summit amid eight may twentieth way they haven't played an actual official match. Since may thirtieth. Kinda crazy isn't it. That's insane that's insane. To think about team is known as the boys of summer. Whatever they haven't been playing during the summers no that reinforces my lack of confidence with them in group. B give me nahvi heroic and just because we don't have any money on the line. I'm gonna say syria. It's a bold prediction but vitality has been shaky enough for me to say that. I think fear could squeak in if i want to be bold with this prediction. Yeah you know. If you're also. I feel like it's been a while since i also watched them. Although they've competed more recently they played in the gamers without borders but like prior to that they really hadn't played anything big again. I think since summit Yeah i mean not a bad. Pick kind of curious to see what kind of furio we get. I think this is honda's first time on land. So it'll be fun to it's just gonna be a fun weekend of counterstrike honestly can't tell you the last time. We did predictions and not one of us even thought about astrologers whole situation just seems jack doesn't it don't have main oppor you have a coach. Who has you know. Even has more that he was thinking of leaving. it's just being publicized. Now right and even other hands are maiming on it. have you seen that. i think it was. What team was it. Maybe heroic was a heroic. Another team is like memed out like they did like a fake. Coaching announcement for that zanuck was going to sign with them. But it's like a hunting not placed top three in an event since february since. I'm sorry january. Twenty fourth blast premier global final. They got second place in. They have not placed in events since then. Yeah i just. I don't see that changing anytime soon. In fact i think it gets. Ben i was gonna say that might be a roster that we see blown up here in a little bit especially because like zanuck leaves i think the original core roster their contracts are almost done so that you don't even have to worry about selling them like they are straight up going to walk for nothing right so i don't see getting any better anytime soon for for astrology and the side of things in fact. Would it be surprised if we eventually just see him bowing out because it's not like they're work. That just has that power to sign. The players like their their entire entity was based on along that core roster. It's not like astrologists. A huge or like cloud. Nine or liquid or fanatic or phase where it can attract players to come into it. I just don't think astrologists at that point. They're going to have to make a move like gambit or heroic where the kind of phase out for a little bit build up some roster from academy team or whatnot and then maybe we'll be shocked when we see them back in but i don't see them all of a sudden signing big name players and it's only gonna get worse before it gets better. Glade has a kid on the way a happy for him it's blessed but also occurs. It's going to be hard. It's going to be hard. Trust me no matter. I think is in for a tough time here so main event. It does start tomorrow like we said. By the time you're listening to this show matches will most likely have already started and or finished and we will obviously recap Next episode as well as far as what's happened let's get into some eighty news real quick before e. news to things shout out tampa bay lightning one stanley cup. No but the four one series. Four one series. Shut him out. Game game five one at home. Did they throw game four and montreal new so they could celebrate at home. The stanley cup. The winners been on the road so many times recently like just probably for like the last five or six years. I feel like it feels like it's been a long time so it is cool to to get on your home-ice back to back first time. That's been the case since. I believe the penguins and good to see as a tampa fan. I'm happy happy happy but not like a life not like it was like the red wings if traditional sports shoot shutouts. Let's go in and give a shoutout to fetter get eliminated from wimbledon. Might be the last time we see that legend on almost forty years old and so he got a standing ovation. Its way out. It was it was really cool. Like a touching moment for a player like that well deserving so shout out to fed if he's listening oh you know he is. He's a huge astrologers fan. Huge huge draws all right so looking here before e. news. Let's tell you about the sponsor philly e. sports phillies sports dot net. They are doing their summer series. The event schedule as up sign ups for their first event. The call of duty cold war before event. It is july eighteenth. You sign up. Get your boys into play. It is a huge prize pool. Five hundred bucks just for a free sign up top eight teams move onto the championship where you can win even more money between the call of duty league rocket league and valerie that goes all the way from now until september twenty. Six thirty thousand dollars is at stake here. So sign up. It is free. What do you have to lose other than gaining all of the glory. Philly e. sports dot net e. news in cs golden has been benched by by fanatic who is not in cologne by the way yeah fanatic fanatics. Probably on the verge of some huge roster take downs. They haven't been practicing together for like the last month with golden and it'll be interesting to to see what direction they go. Because they also feel like they're due for an overhaul potentially invalidate news drone has been benched on. Tsm starting lineup. A little surprised by this. I think this is just a victim of again. We say it once. And i'll say it a thousand times v. c. t. life cycle. I think may. I've i've read some articles stating that it might have been just because tsm was very Dualist heavy but again i felt like drone was one of your better player so to drop them just because you have too. Many dualist seems a little funny but either way. I don't think you'll have an issue. Finding another auster. No i mean great dude. These at a awesome run with tia bin. Tsm is is just in a tough spot right now. They've made three roster changes in just the past couple of months with brax cutler now drone You know they have some work to do. So we'll see who they replace them with some rumors out there. But we'll see ultimately gets the nod to be their fifth and they're they're going to have to prove it all over again. You're no longer able to lean on your previous accomplishments. Because at this point they just they don't mean much like too much time has passed and cod. The big announcements have actually came up. Cdl first off his back this week. major five will be held once again here in arlington. So hopefully we will be able to go this time around because they are allowing fans back into the event so to start on monday morning quark wouldn't be surprised with how they've been doing it. No so it's good to see back at arlington east. Sports stadium fans are back though little. Psa from what. I understand it. I mean i guess it could change between now and then but they still are requiring masks there so. Bring your masks for anyone. That's also goes out to anyone on friday going to the dallas fuel event. I know texas. A lot of places have ditched the masks. Arlington stadium is not one. And you will not be allowed in without it. So where it and i made five will not even be playing multiplayer. They're only going to be playing warzone. Would you. i mean you know probably more money involved there right. Yeah i mean if you're in one of the best could definitely could be and the other big news though for Cod is champs will be august nineteenth through the twenty second and kelly. So don't know fans will be there or not. I don't know california's rules. But i'm gonna assume fans will be allowed at that venue they're deciding to host it. They're true otherwise they probably would've picked especially considering all the teams are here right like hey come fly out to california and do a studio event while with no fans assuming that'll be a fan base event like really really odd to choose the location where you can't have fans when everything else is going back to land and speaking of location t t i ten will be held this october and bucharest. Romania where d plus million on the line and. I don't know the stadium that's being held at but it's like a soccer stadium over there and apparently it's going to be like the full on stadium from what i understand. So that's going to be pretty bad ass to see Can't wait for that and new warzone players know. Don't worry it all right and talk. Basically change change of plan in other news e sick hands down a one year ban now for counter strike players but to three ruined tara players which is the legal legends card games for those who might not know as they colluded together and cheated in the esl. Mobile open fascinating stuff. That's you know. Hey look at least like a hand down one year ban. Whatever like mercy. No you can't do it but everybody's waiting on one piece of information. I will not care about any sort of band even if it's justified or unjustified until i hear what the hell's going on with counter strike scene so you say give me the information we're waiting for and then i will appreciate your body of work later. An nintendo has now the new switch which has been a new old switch. Yeah like you wanna talk about and maybe it's our own fault huge nintendo. This is not nintendo's fault. Technically for the over hyped because everyone was expecting a switch pro like four k. graphics and you know nice screen and more like everyone was expecting so much an all. led oh led. that'll be nice and ethernet port a little larger screen. But honestly nothing that i felt like couldn't have been in the original switch which is only four years old. It's not like oh. Led some tech. Like they could've done the only it's only they could have done it. Probably a smart move on their part to save it for later. 'cause you can resell the unit that way right and then come out with the pro version later on right ethernet port. That really irks me that all of a sudden they found a way to put it in the design. How did they got rid of a usb port so they got rid of one usb port which everyone used for a usb ethernet port anyways and put an ethernet port. So everyone's like that's cool and all but you're still not really figuring out like you're making a problem again by figuring out the solution to buy an ethernet port adapter that turns into right like nintendo never ceases to amaze me with just their unwillingness just to do like what everyone wants. Quality of life changes is not do thing no apps like only nintendo and twenty twenty. One could be like. Hey guys guess what. We have an ethernet port taking away one less. Us imagine being like the sales guy like you really want me to put that in the slide show like an ethernet port. Would you want me to say that. It's in as well like come on so look if you have a switch. There's literally no reason to go out and buy this none whatsoever unless you just waiting for the pro version. Release some like super enhance. If you don't have a switch. I guess you could still get this but at the same time. Yeah i would just almost wait for a pro version coming out. I mean the systems already three years old or four years old so the pro version can't be too far around the corner. So i don't know i don't know what nintendo's doing no one's knows what nintendo's i don't even think nintendo knows what they're doing half the time like white does look nice l. does look sick but you can also just go by white nunchucks and say yourself three hundred bucks so Or what are they called. They're not none chuck. So what are they joy. Joy cons kick kicker flippers joy cons worse controllers anyways. You wouldn't want them want to buy them if you could all right. So they have it.

So james harden is playing against his former team. The houston rockets tonight. We're recording during the game. There was a mixed reaction there. At the compact center with the with the living people they had their. Although i'm center i'm old so i dunno compacts what was it called before the senate i call the coffee shop i like. I have good memories for the complex. So that's gonna sit so. James harden return to the toyota center to face his former team houston rockets. It was a mixed reaction from the crowd there but they did little tribute video forum as well. So what do you guys seen about that. James harden coming back to haitao man. It was a good we. Actually you say mixed. It was good. It was mostly cheers was probably eighty percent years twenty people were i would even say bouin you say they were jeering if you wanna call it back cool and the you know. The rockets video production team might be the best video production team in the entire nba. So the tribute was but not one. If you haven't watched it go check it out. It's phenomenal does he deserve it. Yes he deserves it I think everything's come round circle. He's apologized for how exit and A good thing. You did that. Because i think. He didn't and acknowledged that he didn't exactly go about doing things. The right way then that reception probably would have been a lot worse a lot worse for that man so he deserves it and You know goo good for him. I mean he. He put a lot of work In this team into the city he softened the blow with a bit as he spent some time brooklyn thought about you know what maybe i should give. Thanks bye fans. It's an organization over there because the weight without was ugly and his teammates weren't to have about the way he was acting either of when he when he was here but anyway james harden his seventy player in team history to have his number retired. He joins calvin murphy muslim alone. Akeem olajuwon retired daughters clyde drexler. And yao all right in other hit lines this headline to me zion williamson will not be a part done contest. Kamar seven at the all star game. I was looking forward to seeing desire use there. And he's not there and i am pissed sound. I am really pissed. The wild so upset. I don't want like lebron. James lebron james. I got the league every year. He was like oh you will be the contest. I'm going to be even announced it. I will officially in a duck out this.

He's not doing it as long as he does it. Next season right. I mean what else. The biggest stars aren't competing events.

He should've let it ride a little more too casual and he did like a little rain man does he didn't do enough to make it bad. It was it was it was. It was so dastardly. I d doing. He's like gusman personal. You didn't the jamaran headed duck not too long ago to zion zionist. He is zion had especially in space. Like ooh that was discussed so another thing that piss me off. Dang lillard decide to pull out of the three point contest as well. I don the whites. I'd do that. But i guess he wants to rest up. I wanna see him into three point contest. Also he pulled out awesome. So what's new otis Don't don't start new guy. Chris already started. Got within. No i got i cannot believe at least we can still talk about by bromance because we work cabinet work. We come out that little altercation. He had with the with the kidney at night We should we should address that all right and the last thing on the headlines drew brees. There's a workout video out. There working out is this guy gonna retire night. He's gonna pull like a breath far look his time. The man's all star shohei unless you unless they brought in you know don't know. Jj watt we'll talk about the little bit unless you brought them in you know and you're going all in from one final run registers go man just put it to the put puts risk. Yeah he didn't look too good. So i i just haven't heard him say anything officially about retiring. We're all assuming as going to retire. But i haven't heard it. They've been so many reports and people coming out and they're saying stuff about even away. He close out their game against the the books. You know look like final goodbyes. Tom brady and he's out there. I think throwing the ball. You don't a ball out there and stuff like that saying final goodbye to staff absences team. Baiters james listen. You know though to come back. We shopping keep overseas i. That was a no no. I think you're right. And then sean payton also double down the said and you know we won't jaimes winston back on the team as well. No we shall see we shall see all right so that was headlines we are going to debut segment here on jazz her into the into the sports for so what it is. I've talked about athletes. Their ins and outs of their day athletes normal everyday people so some get caught up in the news doing good things and sometimes you get caught up in a news doing not so good things right. you know. Maybe they'll put out some tweets or put out instagram post or something like that so we're going to get right into it so right now. The washington football team. This is not a person but this is about the entire team so guess what the watch football team is doing there bro. The way they do it. They're getting rid of the cheerleaders bro. They're getting rid of the cheerleader. So right now. The watched football team. I have a i know because you know that has some going on. You know that has some allegations going on so i think they say you know what forget this stuff. We're getting rid of all the so. The watch football team that discontinuing their cheerleader team and replacing them with their co. Ed dance squad and this is in the name of rebranding a rebranding effort. Okay rebranding right. So they've hired petra pope to be in charge of this transition. You said that they know who he is. And it's the latest. No petra has spent thirty three years in nba working with you know their dance squad in the nba. So what they're trying to do. Is they wanna bring nba flavor to the nfl so instead of having cheerleaders you're going to have dances kind of like your rockets and you're in your Lakers girls so that's what they're trying to bring to the washington football team So nothing would all this rebranding. How about we go ahead and pick out a name i. We've got to watch the football team. Let's pick out a name then. Let's figure everything else up. I so team. President and jason rights come out and said that what he wants is the halftime show. Just like i said like the lakers. Girls are the rockets and he wants to be more inclusive and diverse. So what i think about this. Is i kind of mentioned earlier. I mean there were allegations that happened against the football team involving Some cheerleaders that were part of that squad back in two thousand eight and two thousand intense. So i'm just thinking that they just want to scrap the entire thing Let those girls go and bring in some other folks so there is some controversy. Some of the chillers spoken now. They're like look. Our our chilean squad has already pretty diverse. So we don't really understand what's going on here. Mind you they just settled last year with those two cheerleaders that were involved in those Sexual allegations of what they just Settled last year. So i think they're just trying to get ahead of the situation he. Yeah so that's a little nasty. Obviously you know we all know about tiger woods and his situation so obviously last week he got into a car accident where his vehicles at twenty twenty one genesis. Suv rolled over several times and he ended up going to the hospital is very lucky to be alive. Yeah so he's very lucky to be alive. Well the la sheriff's department they're executing a search warrant for the blackbox quote unquote blackbox For that vehicle that he was driving. So i guess they're trying to determine you know what happened exactly so now new vehicles do have these black boxes like planes do so kind of records the acceleration the angle and everything was going on. You know kind of records the was going while you were driving so to when when it actually happened. I had no thoughts of kobe ono. This is i mean. I'm just very happy that he's okay. I mean i know the the injuries are still serious about this happy times. Oh yeah yeah. I thought we lost a great one but fortunately you know he's he's up in guys alive so good news. This search warrants. They couldn't execute one for to get blood because they already determined there. There was no probable cause to get blood. So that's not it but they're just trying to hang out so big ups to him speedy recovery and Stop getting a car accidents right so last. Not least this is what i call my loaf of the week. The love of the whig loaf of the week. So let me get down and dirty. Let me tell you what the loaf of the weakest. so they're more loaf that comes from rodman nelly. Who was the previous coach or a former coach of the dallas cowboys. He was the defensive coordinator. Put cowboys in your somehow. Always labor although all the time man so So what a loaf is what he would do is after he'd watch film after a game or practice. He was really hard on the defensive. Lineman saw those defensive. Lineman weren't performing very well war hustling on the field and that means rather snap you're paying playing through snappy running after that ball carrier wherever. They're ball's going if he saw that he gave you a loaf and that was a good thing that puts you in a dog house right now. Low for the week is kellen. Winslow junior damn kellen winslow junior fellow notice. This been in jail. He was sentenced to fourteen years Accepting a plea deal for a rape case and numerous other sexual allegations winslow obviously drafted by the cleveland browns. Back in two thousand and four retired in two thousand thirteen five women were included in these sexual offenses and he accepted a plea deal. So when's the has been described as a sexual predator and his victims were defenceless women of a certain age and certain living conditions. One of these women. The woman had actually raped was actually was was a homeless woman. Can you imagine right because the homeless woman very fast exactly Seventy year old victim. Who was unconscious. I think maybe you know. Probably drinking too much or something like that. But you russell to the seventy year old And then he allegedly raped fifty four year old woman as well so that's my loaf of the week. Killing winslow june john. I don't think you can get any any lower than that as far as lopes that. That's pretty low. Yeah all right big low big glow into the sports versus right all right so day. What has agreed to a two year contract with the arizona cardinals. This past monday deals reported to be worth about thirty. One million that includes twenty three million guaranteed did the former houston texan. Make the right choice. She using the arizona cardinals wanna rink right he. He made the right choice. And i'll tell you why. Tell us why. Chris tells why is the nba. We know this in the nba. You could go to two or three teams and you know you have a real good shot at winning right but in the nfl is no guarantee. So what did he do. He went to a team. That has a good wide receiver in the andre hopkins. Forget what team he plays for a little man. What was oh. Yeah the texans. Yeah and then. He has a quarterback bear. That is a young solid quarterback coaches up incoming they already have chandler jones on one end of that line and him coming on the other end of that defensive blind. They have a good team. Are they a super bowl. Contender me you just never know the nfl. Do they have shot. Yeah so. I think he made the right decision. Where you going to go. The packers can never trust the browns. I don't trust their quarterback the bills you know how i felt about josh allens coup this christie made the right decision according to what and that's what my question is is it. Is it the fit. If that's the fit. Then yeah that makes sense because one of his previous is previous. Defensive coordinator. yeah he's he's the defensive coordinator. There isn't about money. Yes because arizona had money is about winning the championship. Just like you say chris. He went championship in two within two years. I don't think that's it's going to happen arizona. I'm not under estimating. But i think there are a lot more qualified teams in arizona. So did you make the right fit for the money. Absolutely they make the right fit or the mike right choice. four championship. Heck no heck. No i trust i trust the packers more. He could went to tampa bay and did like domico. Sue and played on a one year deal. You know for not a lot of money He could have went to indianapolis colts. I think there are a little bit closer than arizona's right okay. So low real quick on us. Two things one i think they do. They have a chance to win the super bowl. I wouldn't call them. You know one of the top contenders book to your pulse point. I truly believe that the whole he wasn't going to go to coulter titans because of the afc south. I think he just ruled them out. Okay that's my opinion. I could be wrong. But right. Now i gotcha so i i. I was flabbergasted. I was surprised arizona and obviously knew. No one saw that coming and i know guys heard of how he came up with. This decision You know he had one of the things one of his homeboys by a bunch of shirts of the five teams that were in contention for his services and he didn't want his name anywhere on those packages. So you know homeboy bought everything on you. Know his friends card and then friend delivered those shirts over. So that's how. I ended up making a decision but i wouldn't be able to do that with john because he ain't gonna make the purchase. Let alone drought napkin. You broke it down low when we talk about the right decision to reason why poses question is because of what j. watt sip. What he told us. He said he wants to get a ring right. This was it so you know when we're talking about this. Social media people on other sports. Talk radio arizona cardinals. Derek aids eddie is by the time he came up is wendy andrea hopkins actually said. Let's finish what we started. And everybody was booted off like going to arizona. We go there. Why because he said he wanted to get a read. That's why there's a memo now the has. Jj watt saying. I want to get a ring and on the bottom shows larry his jail with this confused. Look on his face. Then why did you don't get me wrong. If he didn't make that comment. I will be a okay arizona and they have a punchers chance. Don't wrong but if he would've went to green bay there's more than a punchers chance. They just went to the nfc championship game. That's the point. I'm okay the cleveland. Browns were in the play offs. They were closed. They were contending right. So he wrote with the cleanup like okay. You have a chance to championship there. But he wouldn't zona now. They accident him. Why do you go to arizona. Hit the number one thing he said. The first thing he said was customer. Colin murray is a a good quarterback. He's well on his way but the key thing he said is that he is two or three years away from really being debt quarterback. So if you think about kyla murray why would you go to arizona. So i don't think it's i mean you say perfectly if it's sort of money is the right choice right if he's going to people familiar with is the right choice but if he's going there to win a ring man. I don't think that's right. Choice is not the top three. The ms go. He said he said calamar. Threes there along those lines kobe. He's he's he's he's not there yet. So if that's the logic right the logic why not go to tampa. We're tom. brady is for one year one year and when the zona and then won another super bowl in the three years. Whatever you guys never you guys what. Let's call up broken late april. Why is he. He's block right now. Yeah he's yeah. He's barring nothing. I guess i mean look is his choice. He did what he did. I like the fattest arizona honestly but was the right choice. I don't know and it's based on what you said. We we disagree. That's what it is. I just grew both of you guys because in the nfl doesn't no guarantees. Have been tom brady. Tom brady is the only guarantee in the nfl. You understand the packers got to the nfc championship game. I'll give you the packers or the better team. So that when i'll give your the have a don't make feel doesn't have the money so tampa bay doesn't have the money right when you money for one year chris. They don't have the money bro. They got a pain domin sue. That's a pay multiple play. They don't have the money you that's true that's very true. They don't have the money but when we're talking about we're just talking about just championship. Th there's a way to make it happen and you have to defensive players on the tampa bay buccaneers. It needs to be paid as well. So i get your. I think i'll missing it though row. Tampa bay bucks. Wanna overpay for an agent star when they have sony younger guys. Pay plus tom. Brady's i don't think ever an option. Chris labored this way put. This is not about tampa bay. It's not about green bay about arezzo number cleveland or the money. 'cause i didn't think money was in the question. What he said he said. I want to get a rink so he could take a pay cut. That's fine. I like i said maybe tampa bay but again they don't have the money and there's no guarantee that they actually wanted him. It was never really out there right. It was it was fans like us mentioning it. But they don't have the money ends. An agent star in their line is fantastic. They don't meet him. The only team i would say it gives you the packers. That's it and there you can say. They're marginally better the browns. I'm sorry you missed me. I trust colin. Murray more than i trust the browns quarterback baker mayfield. That's all you you go to the bills. The bills have to go against the chiefs. They are not beating the chiefs. And i certainly don't trust josh allen. So i have no problem with him. Going to agree with you. Like the cleveland browns. I i don't trust baker. Mayfield either The bills okay. All right maybe My teams were You would think with what's out there and what we claim what we would know about. Jj watt you would've thought once again hometown packers to finish off a career. You would've thought steelers for everyone to say okay. Well he's going to play with his brothers but at least that team made it to the playoffs last year. You do have veteran presence. You have all of that. You have a well run organization. Okay blessed while. I don't quite trust their Their starting quarterback but again that's a perennial playoff team. You've ordered ruled off a ruled out the colts and the titans. Because they're in the same division as texans so in a cheese and other chiefs have a lot of players that they're paying a lot of money but that that would have been another team once we're talking. We're just not going about it. You're you're absolutely right but for me it's just arizona came out of nowhere but i get it. I get it so good fit when you really break it down. It makes sense. I think he's going to go and be productive. that defense. whatever zona was already really good. Last year they're going to be even better with challenge owns and. jj watt. Calamari is a is a really good quarterback really talented. He's only going to elevate his game. And then with this draft coming up. They're going to add more pieces and i don't know what their salary cap situations looking like. I think without addition who have right now and the fact that they went eight last year. I think people are going to see that as a destination to do see their team. Elevate we're talking about perennial playoff team where you have a much better chance of winning championship. Arizona was just not there for me. Exact i agree with aaron wooden there. But i'm like what you said about the defense last year. Most people don't know arizona's defense was number four in the league is they're only going to get better. You talk about the situation. They have a rookie. Quarterback got a rookie quarterback. So that means they have money to spread around. If you're gonna go forward go for it now. So i'm all with it. I'm just saying this pittsburgh. Pittsburgh green bay buffalo. Christie goes stop pooh-poohed on the buffalo bills. Really stop it okay. You do it that we got buffalo. The colts and you got tennessee. Titans of course he wasn't gonna go to tennessee. He was going to the colts. That if you went to be an andre johnson situation where he led the texas. They went to to the tennessee. They didn't work out to address. And by the way so I i really do think that buffalo pittsburgh and the packers would have been better destinations than going to the cardinals. But that's where you went. It was defiant when you think about the has accorded as there ain't thinking about the andre hopkins being there. You just mentioned that they were very good defense even without him so you plug them in there as well. The key is going to be calmer. Can he elevators game this next season because he kinda fell off there. A little bit at ended at the tail end the season last year. That's why the cars that push into the playoffs. They didn't like they were going to play midway when the audrey hopkins caught that What they called the murray male murray. Mary's whatever you call and he caught that on. Murray hail mary whatever was man. We thought the cars away last year. So we'll see we'll see jay wipe. He's a karnal. I'll get over it. Maybe not over yet. Maybe i'm still hyped up on it. Because he's he left houston but we'll see we'll see what happens you know. What though is that because you know the had that number ninety. The arizona cardinals had the number nine jersey retired. Oh yeah yeah. That was a dose story So the forget his name. I'm so sorry but the the player that had it prior to him was from. I think he played in the nineteen thirties mistake. And so the guys. Yeah well so. The guys passed away and it was the granddaughter. Right contacted He didn't contact what she already came out on tv and said. Hey we're going to. I'm okay with retiring. That number just. Jj watt so he reached out and thanked her and everything else pretty dope that they did that for him was pretty dope so jd. Rainman i nine with arizona cardinals. Let's move on to the nba and this vp race right. We're going to do our top five. Mvp candidates how do it here in new shell sports. We're all gonna take a turn when i go from five to one. I guess i'll start because i'm already talking. I want his guy gets out. What what is it kristie. I give them no. Why would you explain to people. What the new genesis sports five just in case there do well. We're gonna go around. I wanna go first then low. You're gonna go then. Chris will then. I'll go again then. Low you will give us the top. Mvp candidate this year in the mvp race. Around for five you starting at five years. Guess people know low is the person he is. The guy who consistently ruins are lists. Clo- come home. This boy crystal is shade today. Oh this by myself on purpose is tomorrow so my number five. Don't say anything. Chris i don't want her mouth when i say this man's name okay. 'cause he's played excellent. I'm going to give him your nickname right. Now chris he is played as though he's the phenomena. One over here in portland damian lillard. What is it chris. You're no no no no no no growth. He's doing it. He is doing it all of their that. I miss it up on his man. Never apologize to all the viewers every everybody listening. So i gotta apologize as dude in flowers loyal listeners. If you listen to this podcast which you our rate toby. Most of the time on right anyway. They always do this thing where you could win you make you make. This is my pick. It maybe damian lillard great. Keep doing whatever i. That's by the death. So let me give you the stat. Line for mr damian. Lillard twenty nine points per game. Almost thirty points for us is a game. Eight rebounds a game. The poor and tribal is right. Now are to succeed in the west. They are hundred and fourteen. He is pretty much doing it all for this team. And i just had to take time to give them kudos because as usual. He's been underrated. he's not being valued as one the best point guards in the league and yes he is definitely indus mvp race. He is definitely number five as far as a candidate. Don't poop one daimler go ahead and gave him before. Though 'cause i'd had his own. Yeah i might just leave. You know. i'm kinda scared. Scared about scared. Get my number. Four number four is luka doncic. I think he should be a little bit higher. But the reason i'm got my number four right now mad we saw. He's the reason for a lot of this but the mavericks right now. They're playing right now as we speak. But they're seventeen and sixteen Bhaluka right now's averaging averaging twenty nine points per game eight rebounds a game and necessa. That's almost triple double game. I if he's not number two number. One i don't know who else is But he's the mavericks. Were under five hundred. I think at one point there about four or five games under five hundred and now they're five hundred so If they continue the subject to republican any team that a close out and probably probably best. You know the for the scene in playoffs harden numbers. Bro yo yo sounds real good sounds real good. But james harden never winning bp with look better not when mvp vp with. The he won one and he's been aimed. Very amazon is debatable. That maybe should have won at least one of those in there one of those years but on the outside looking in as far as the playoff races concerned. But you're you're right. They can he be good teams to play. He's playing and his teammates. Step up the christoph porzingus your guys step up. Maybe they can find themselves in the in the playoffs. Start getting hurt chris. You gotta three four bro. I when everybody listening to know they did. This saw only have one pick you pick. Oh my bad man when when when you when you the best you know. That's what they do to you. All right so they can do. You don't play. Nba three. I'm going to go. This one is tough because both this weird thing so this was tough for me. I wanna make sure you guys say his name so number. Two number one are pretty obvious who they are. So he's gonna be lebron james number two number one better not messing number. Three's lebron you got the brought it three second best record in the west. He's playing phenomenal numbers ridiculous. Do you remember. Do you know how odious he's thirty. Five thirty five. I'll say you should be higher. I would say it should be you guys. Talk to guys are really good but lebron has been excellent. It's not a lot to say here. He probably won't win it. But while he could dependent atop to slide because because of the top two guys it's positions they could slide so they do. I think this is the perfect year. Perfect narrative lebron james assu been and essentially still an mvp. And since you said still. I still think that in most people's eyes he sees atop to but hey he's not up to now right now agrees okay so number two on the list. I don't know what what logo is thinking right now. I wanna make sure this guy gets in his ozzy shitty. But i just don't know what you're thinking because i think i'm just gonna make sure he gets in. We already know he's he's top to joel. Embiid is having a phenomenal season. I make sure. I don't want him in say hello. Where should it be chris. What do you think. But i don't want them out. Know what people i don't know what chris. I dunno kazan. Who should worship. Joel joel number one from early. Better chris to wherever dude i want. I don't know what you did in the beginning. Don't blame me blame me. That's not do wrong. I would've i would've gotten a right because you would have been number two number one for me on my list. He's number one. Okay so thank you so so. Let's joke joke is to the looney. Okay coco. I'm cool with the chris. Say janas or someone won miss the he would do my african brother on bro. You want to know where on us. Not to see what i'm saying. Let me be clear. Low this is not your fault damian that he kicked off jaanus okay. Hey to hey. Y'all five missing listed. Somebody imports missing. 'cause i talk. Let's go over to new channel sports. Top five real quick okay. We didn't get to go in depth. Joel embiid one. Joke is number two. I didn't i didn't have Away with him to go. So five is damian lillard. Have you didn't look problems. I'd have look look and all daimler number five heading for a number for them for before and number three. Who you say chris. Lebron james lebron james. Okay are top five right there right. So joel embiid jokic. Lebron james ladonna and damian lillard for now. I didn't have luca area by luca yacht and number five. So who do you. Everybody that was on the list are me and low has exact same maybe a little different or lillard was not on my list. Ya joe cajon iraq. Yes on their Onto to compose on their is on their lebron lucas. On all right give him this. I'm sorry okay. What say go ahead. Yeah right behind cameras man and also you want to jump on this. I don't know how many you is there. Not that you know you're you don't we know ory you've said his name. I wanna talk. Show started out good. I'm good. I think i think matter of fact i think is part of the show. I think you introduce daimler and on the show to if they open the show yeah would disagree so hey notre dame which we all good. We are brothers man. It's all good. You can say what you want to say all right. So that was the new channel top five as far as the mvp candidates. We didn't go into depth which joel embiid and jokic. But they're both having phenomenal years. I do think that joel embiid is a clear not really clear. Cut as much as he was back then but he's a favorite right now. He's lena philadelphia of service group team to the best record in the east He's playing his butt off. He had a movie at a step back jump shot. Oh my he looks really really good so and then you know playing with the denver nuggets. He's playing well also. They have similar numbers. But i have to get to joel embiid right now right. There's a team out there right now as been playing pretty good. They makarov with slump lately but they are. They do have the best record right now. I believe in the nba. The utah jazz led by. dr mitchell. Are utah jazz a contender for the nba championship. Rda legitimate tender for the nba champion. Right now. I think i said this on you. Know one of the podcasts. That we i i need to see them. Get past what the second round one. I think i did that last during the bubble from mistaken i didn't okay. Blunt they blew a three one lead. That's right so i need to see them the second round that they've been stuck in that first second round area for the last couple of years. Let's get out of the second round. Let's get to Let's get to a conference championship now. Then we can talk but right now now to do that. So for me i got. I'm taking a wait and see approach. I i almost agree with you. I really do. I wanna say there peaking at the wrong time almost because they've lost three other last six games they play great defense there. You only team a league. That's five offensively and defensively. They're never won the league as far as Three point shots made Dr mitchell was playing great people. Consider him to be an all star. But you just say correctly low. It comes down to the playoffs. They have not shown it to me in the playoffs. This might be the year where they make a run. I'm not gonna quite say that they're they're championship contenders yet because usually when you come back from a disappointing in the playoffs you don't automatically just go always thousand of that. You might taste a little bit success in the playoffs. Get to the conference championship. Then the next year could be like okay. You've proven that you can beat teams in seven game series. They have ruled that at all to me. I don't know if they've won. A playoff series says. Dr mitchell has been with the utah jazz one oklahoma city thunder. Okay okay oh that teamed themselves was a very iffy team. They don't have rest. Burke and paul george right be right right of the. Don't call them and but utah. They have to do it in the playoffs. One thing i will give them is that they do play good defense. They do play good team basketball. They do have a lot of things going for them. going into the playoffs. That'd be surprised if they made as far as karma championship. no. I wouldn't because they're playing. Will they have the best record in the league right now but am i confident they can do it. No because they have proven to the plan. So same bro. What's your position. I don't think. I don't know competent. No i want to be surprised that this two different. I'm gonna be surprised. Because they're the best record in the league. but they had not proven it to mean a player. That's why i just can't say they're going to do it. I don't think they are title. Contenders said i do not the tower thinners because they have not proven to me in the playoffs we have a lot of teams that play well in the regular season and they're not able to duplicate that success in the playoffs. I'm buying the playoff success argument. Both of you guys i. I'm not buying that per se. I just don't think they are because they're just not i think they're comparable to two teams in the last ten years the nba and making fall in one of these two categories the best case scenario the two thousand eighteen rockets that ended the season as the number one seed rate. Defense great offense. They're prepared to play the golden state warriors. They lost chris. Paul and the other team is twenty. Four two thousand fifteen atlanta hawks went sixteen twenty two rate record number one see but we knew they weren't legit. I think they're closer to that. Atlanta hawks team because they're not better than the of the denver nuggets out better than the both la teams so that it's going to be very tough for them to get to the conference championship game. A lot of lucky things to bounce away. And i mean avoiding certain teams right. But they're going to have to play the nuggets. The clippers or the lakers and i don't think they're favourite to win any of those series so i don't think they're even the question is are they finals contenders. I don't think they're western conference. Finals contenders so great season. They're gonna put up a great record but unfortunately they're just they don't have enough. They may need to do something at the trade deadline they go out and get like a guy like a. Pj tucker somebody who can really make a difference in the playoffs. You might happening sunday. So i mean you don't title contenders right. Oh absolutely not. Who'd you be surprised if they went to the conference championship shock. Oh they don't make a deal if they don't make a deal at the deadline is i mean what do you use. Ask better than nuggets user. Now this is my thing the nuggets. The nuggets came back against utah jazz team. They had a three one lead on him. Okay and i mentioned about the west before. The west is full of dangerous teams. You have the la lakers and the clippers who are on top of that western conference my Mountain they had the phoenix suns. Utah jazz yet. The denver nuggets. These are very very dangerous teams. I use that as before last year. Chris you didn't think both a. teams will make it to the finals. That's going to be. It's going to be either one l. a. team and one of these other teams that we just mentioned. Utah did have a lead in the denver nuggets in that role through and went to the conference finals. They had to tough it out in a game. Seven against utah. Tough out against the clippers to get all the way there and there's another team into western weakened for sure say is going to get there besides lakers if they have a healthy athlete davis by the way i hear what you're saying i agree with you but that was last season. I said that all year. I didn't think both la teams finding this season. And i feel we are. Most people thought that the clippers were win this series especially when they went up necessarily going be. La lakers in la clippers. And i still think that. I'm big on. If makes sense. I really am. I think that is a very dangerous team a very complete team. They're playing very well together so they can knock people out. And i don't necessarily think that. The phoenix suns overwhelming favourite against the utah jazz. Either i do. I would pick to win that series. But i don't think they're overwhelming favourite. Also you don't think the jazz are better than their sons. Well we mean. Low mentioned is as playoff playoff time. When it comes to play time you got the worst. And i think when it when it comes to play. They haven't proven anything to me. The barak same and going against an a series against the sons would favor the jazz witness series based on the team. You know based on chris paul and his you know his track record. He has led his teams to play. Off wins okay. It hasn't been the most greatest playoff. So i'm just saying based off the experience that the phoenix suns have and the winter playing right now as one dangerous teams. I wouldn't be surprised if they beat the utah jazz. Say that and i get that. I'm saying who you favorite in this series if they play right now but who will be favored necessaries its strength. I'm saying. I am going to ask a question chris but i'm telling you who will be favored essays would be the utah jazz but i would like the sun out. I would believe windsors our have it as upset as put out there. There will be. I would think you'll being upset because utah. We'll have homecourt advantage. They had the best home court record india. Nba right now. So it is. But they're all. Those teams are dangerous. They're not the lakers would healthy. The lakers are going to the conference by the jazz missing. L. i want to ask you this chris when you were you brought up the trade Possibility pick up. Pj tucker what are they missing for me. I think they're missing that. I don't know if necessarily need a transcendent superstar. But i don't think there are any necessarily any necessary stars on that team that kind of talent level that person that makes a difference. I think that's what they're missing for me. They closely remind me of last year's bubble the playoff bubble raptors teams. Whether you remind me of a little better defensively yeah. That's kind of just the way that they're building. No no it's not. It's not that it's just based on the way that they're built They're they're they're always. I mean for the last. How many years now. They've been playoff. They've been in the playoffs there consistently there s. No slouch right Just like when we talked about. But what level were they. Going to be the lakers in this series. What they didn't last year the clippers aren't very good this year to me so i think you know they are gripper. Well shock last year playoffs right. I mean it comes down to the Could they beat the sons of the sons. Make it. I think did of course right Who else we got In india we got it. Yes so you know. There's a lot of competition there in the west stack. But i think that that team missing that that super star type player you know that she's gonna turn it on and take over games and they don't have that so once again. it would come down to the playoffs. Let's get to a western conference championship. And let's see how far you guys go from there. If you go then. I think we can really you know. Take seriously. But i'm i'm no
