"A luxury to build your team with different sorts of players because of the shooting that those who guys give you not only that they get their shots so many of them of movement and screening action side to side action. No team ever ever been better equipped to swallow a big guy who can't and this is what soon as draymond green would be in the situation at big guy who can't or won't shoot than these warriors because if you ignore it if dream onto screening clay on one side and assuming disguises clogging laying on the other side then steph just runs off simmons either on a hand off screen and he's wide open like this is what they were doing for years and years and years and i just think yes. There would be hiccups. Yesterday would be overlap but when you combine the passing i mean dream on and simmons are two of the fifteen best hazards in the nba at minimum. I don't know. I mean at worst into of the five best defenders in the nba. Something like that. Would you combine all of that. As long as the fifth peace can shoot. I think that they would overcome that skill. Overlap between the side to side movement. How stephan klay play how they shoot the degree to which both raymond and simmons are great reading and react players after setting screens and keeping the ball moving. I'm more. i'm optimistic. That it could work. And i think i think there's an upside which it works really really well into super fun watch. I don't know if they hit that upside. But i'm not. I'm certainly far from the people who just see the skill similarities and dismiss it out of hand. Do you think you could play them both at the end of games together drain minded sims. I do i do again. It's a fifth guy can shoot. I do and obviously defensively you. Could they be hard as hell to play against a into scheme against the score against You know i think there. There's there's a world where suddenly they're deep in west finals. It gets a bad matchup in. They're playing hot potato. And and we're all right This didn't work but at the same time like ibm. I would favor them to at least get to the west finals with this scenario. Like everyone's always like well. What happens with simmons doesn't shoot in the west finals and my thing would be what if you never get to the west files like you gotta get there before these problems can hurt you. Won't it's like the the the argument. Why the kings. I think the king should trade for maybe even suave fox for him. You know pe- some people might disagree with me but it's like you know the kids haven't been to the playoffs fifteen years if ben simmons just get you play even if he has a hiccup in the playoffs hey sacramento you're in the playoffs and i think there's a little of that with the warriors of like you know maybe in the nba finals ben. Simmons has a moment that that makes you lose the final. You're not getting there. I don't think but this current rosser will see quick hitters. Thirty seconds apiece for dell. Start with you reasonable optimistic. Finish for the warriors assuming relative good health for klay thompson. When he comes back reasonable optimistic season outcome four or five seed win a first round and get knocked out in the second anthony. You said reasonable optimism. Remember this is the optimus. I do think they're ceiling in the regular season because of the lack of clay and the choppiness of it will be four five six as you said but then a very dangerous four or five six seat in the west. That i do think is down so i think you know west finals even even a danger to to get to the finals of clay really Shows i. I'm not picking it at all but you're like by the time april. We're going to edit this out you know. I think phoenix is being underrated. That might be picking west but are we doing the pessimistic side. Are we doing the your side. We should probably with because i am a pessimist. Let's end with pessimism. Okay you can go first. Give me the let's pessimistic. Scenario klay comes. I guess this includes klay comes back. He's just seventy percent clay j. ready.

Because i've never found him. I'm not debating. He's great. But i never found him truly captivating like i did on his prime roberto duran and his prime sugar ray. Leonard hitman hearns. Hagler mike tyson. I'm old enough. I remember form and ken norton ali. Could i make the argument. Mayweather's not been good for boxing. He's been bad for it. I agree on certain levels. You know she has brought this like weird. Flashy sorta materialistic you know. Everything's about money in and he's brought that to the sport and that was all it knew all the sport new for many many years and i. I don't think that's really what the sport is about the end of the day. I think we need to bring this back to like is a pity me of rocky who is rocky that that story you know those underdogs Coming not yes You know the ups and downs tyson fury stories even inspiring the know becoming heavyweight champ. Losing it all like going through mental depression in coming back those are the those are the boxing stories. That are good for the sport. Floyd yeah flu. You definitely make the argument. That floyd's been he's been good but he's also been bad for sure jake in a weird way. Sports is a copycat league like the warriors dominated shooting threes and then a lot of teams. That didn't have good three point. Shooter said we've got to do it. Will it works if you have. Kevin durant stephan klay. Do you got a bunch of you know there are. There are a lot of teams that tried to threes and just didn't have elite shooters and mayweather has given sort of defensive boxing and points overpower. He he no longer has the power. You know that that. I think he's given sort of a license to tactically win. But i don't think it's that fascinating to watch whereas muhammad ali could beat you with rope a dope. He could slug with frazier and norton. He could be a defensive fighter. A counterpuncher. 'cause i think sports you watch mayweather you think. Oh i don't have to take many shots. I don't you go back to the leonard. The hearns the hagler duran. You had to mix it up that there was a badge of honor. You mixed it up like you. Just wouldn't be a defensive fighter. I think that's the part that turns me off stylistically. Does it turn you off to you. When i watched me whether i think and paquito doesn't have the power used to but i still think manny can hit. Mankin hurt you. Yeah look i mean. That's one of floyd's biggest. Criticisms is boring fights. And i agree. No one wants to tune in and watch a twelve round fight where it just some pitty patter back and forth and he technically winds want knockouts. People want blood people. Want a highlight reel punches and combinations. You know they want excitement. They want people to sit there and slug with each other. They want knockdowns. And yeah floyd floyd in his biggest fights didn't really deliver any of that So i agree but again ended but then where you have to give him. Credit is is showmanship you know. He brought the eyeballs He he brought the excitement Any built his brand up in. That's why people wanted to watch him even more so than his actual boxing ability. I wanna bring a guy who's not a suck up. Who covers the packers with objectivity tyler done. I got into this discussion. The other day. psychology one about aaron rodgers with a friend..
"stephan klay" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"Momo's information this week and there's been a lot of stuff in the news about espn and how they're gonna redo their basketball coverage and andrew marchand. Who is a reporter in. New york says that one of the things are considering momo is putting stephen a smith magic johnson and michael will bond on nba countdown. We'll and magic. We're on with bill. Simmons and sage steele a few years ago. I thought that was pretty good. Stephen as a little more opinionated than what bill. Bill didn't like it. I've heard him talk about it. He said he felt like he didn't get enough time to say what he was doing. But what do you think about magic will bun and steven a. On nba pre halftime. And post so. I think. I don't think that would be all the time. I think that would be. Maybe one one nine magic magic. Obviously doesn't mean i mean all of those guys have other jobs all those guys wilpon in magic or two hugely successful guys. It's a matter of if they want to work that much right. Yeah i mean the the thing is all those guys are friends and when you're friends with somebody a lot of times on the air you the really good chemistry. So i've always said the best shown our network is is part of the interruption. And it's wilpon and tony kornheiser and it's just a great buddy show to mason in ireland. You guys are friends. You guys have chemistry. You're great so that's why it lasts for twenty years i to me. It's you know Stephen i did a show with magic will bon doc rivers couple years ago it was like from la the specials or something really good. They really works. Because i i just think those guys are friends and they know each other for years and they have chemistry and like i always think when you're you're casting shows a lot of times you know people wanna put different people together. Like like. Didn't put two opposites and see if they fight. You know like that'll be good tv or that'll be good radio and every once in a while you put two very different people on the air together and it works. Sometimes like you know one of the shows on our network. I used to like Winter dial hosted with michael thompson. 'cause you know so different than michael but he was a good straight mad and michael so goofy and you know like sometimes that works but other times it's Other times it's hard to listen to. It doesn't work so i usually offer for putting people who already have a friendship in a chemistry together. I think that's that's a good one. Well one thing is if if they could get those guys to talk candidly like magic. When he tweets is super ernest like tweets really nice things. But he's not that way when he talks like you've had conversations with them and if you can get him on tv to tell you what he really thinks. I mean he's one of the greatest basketball minds. Ever wilbon will say whatever thinks he doesn't care. And so we'll stephen. A the reason that the tnt show is so iconic is because barkley will tell you whatever anything's regardless of hurting anybody's feelings he'll just say like the guy. The guy who i think can do that next. Momo is draymond green. Yeah he's going to be awesome but he still plan now. The other guy who i think would do that and who would be great at it but now we know he's gone a different way would have injured nutley. Yeah i think he would have been great to all the thing is sometimes you think somebody's going to be great on tv because you know what they were like as a player and how when you interview they were great and then they get on tv and they kind of just. They don't want to say anything just kind of wondering they'll give you two. I'll give you two examples of that. Sandy colfax everybody thought. He's one of the greatest pitchers of all time. They've put him straight in the booth. After he retired he was a young guy. He didn't say anything. He was terrible. Jackie robinson is in announcer. Wasn't candid jackie off. The air was like super candid on the air. Didn't really work. Pat riley worked for a year with bob costas as a studio host and the stuff that riles says privately in the locker room is but he didn't want to criticize people publicly. And so the thing is. I think those guys would reason. Barkley is so good is he. Will he will come right out and say even if he's wrong like you said a million times golden state it's never gonna win title because all those to shoot from the outside but but a lot of people are afraid to even say that because they know when they face stephan klay in person be awkward. barclay doesn't care. i think we'll bonds that way. I stephen as that way and i think magic if you put him around those two would be that way so i hope it something like even if you say it only happens like one night out of the week because they still got a bunch of people that i think jalen great i think jay williams is good i think. Tv is turner. Richard jefferson is awesome. Yeah i think is good. Yeah my guy right so if if you if you just put that group together that super team together maybe for the sunday game of the week and that perk and richard jefferson and jalen do the stuff during the week. It would be great and they'll find somebody to fill the rachel role. I mean it might be melita it. Maybe you'll do it. Maybe you'll do a couple of days a week. I the they've got. They've got the bullpen to make this really good but if they could put that super team together even one day a week steven a. Magic will bundle. You think it'd be fun. I mean we really listen. I do a lot of shows all those guys okay. So every time. I e every time stephen a. or wilpon to come on the show i say yes not because it's a big show but because we i just like talking those guys on there really fun and they're really good at getting you to. I feel like a lot of ways you say more. I'll stephen aid usually a call in. It'll be seven or eight minutes. Keeps you on there for like twenty twenty five minutes until he's done with you stand by the way scheme. A is one of those guys regardless of how much money makes makes a lot of money. He's just he's a worker man he he's an innings eater. He's he's the one guy that if they said to him. Hey we need you to do this. Six nights a week he would do it. I mean it just loves working. So i think there's some i mean forever everybody's been chasing that. Tnt show trying to find something that could be even remotely like it. I think that maybe. I mean i don't even think you're going to exceed that show. It's really really good. But maybe that idea of stephen a. wilbon and magic together might work. We'll see we'll see. I mean all the stuff. The season starts in a month. The preseason games are gonna start in a month and so pretty soon. This stuff is all going to iron itself out but it's it's got a. It's got a possibility there that it could be good all right so coming up radio tinder and coming and coming up at the top of the hour. After lindsey goes through radio tinder i. This happened to me a couple of times. I'll go into more detail later. But have you ever watching tv and some are listening to the radio and.
"stephan klay" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Unhappy and he's gonna force his hand. Everyone stuck so all. The leverage for these trees are gone. Now look i get. It are afraid of the backlash from fans of it feels premature. But you know you talk about this. Sometimes sometimes you know in the immediate. You're going to be wrong. You have an opinion about something and you're going to be wrong. Initially initially for certain amount of time and people are going to comment you. Tweet it you and you know make memes about it and then but you know over time you will end up being right and all those people that were yelling screaming forgets that they were on your head as when you initially said it. Yeah this is one of those situations where maybe the fan base might have reacted. Nba media might have freaked out. But in the long run you would have ended up being right because you moved him. When you still had the leverage you could have gotten a lot for him because his value was still high and it's all still a mystery about him in difference is something that doesn't wear well like if ben simmons shooting issues two years ago you can talk yourself into. I gotta go shooting coach right but once. Now you've seen his indifference which has been a knock on him. Since college scared out the jay cutler thing jay cutler was super talented. But there was an indifference about jay cutler and like the more you saw jay. The more teams like out drew lock. I get a little bit of. This doesn't play with a ton of urgency too cool for school like the more you see a ban the less i'm willing to give for him. But unlike jay cutler andrew walk ben is elite at something. He is an elite defender and passer. Yes but definitely defender like you cannot argue that. He is one of the top defenders in the league. So you can't build an organization around him but he does have value still. I still contend. The obvious fit is portland with became because dame is a small. Port offender remain. Dame's just eight dame is is along with steph curry the best clutch shooter in basketball period. He and kevin durant stephan. Klay but dame is a smaller athlete. He's not a great defender. He can be a liability if you have a bigger guard. So ben wouldn't be a guard but the culture is set in portland's very good culture with dame. Cj mccollum is a duplication of dame. He's also because. Cj mccollum is a shooter right. He doesn't drive not don't worry about him driving the basket. He'll play great with them. Beat and curry and tobias harris so in everybody says well the ceiling for ben simmons. Nobody wants to hear about anymore because the floor is too low so to me. Cj mccollum draft pick. Maybe robert covington. Whatever but ben. Simmons is what portland needs a large wing player. Who can defend by the way. Don't forget this simmons averages about eighteen a game. It's like he doesn't score he. He scores at the rim. And by the way portland's already gotten rid of genus kanter and zach collins. Which tells you are they clearing space. Because i think you can't be a center. Dominant offense not that portland center dominant. But you can't with ben simmons. He needs the lane free to drive in score at the rim and gain. Confidence dame does give him that. So tom brady has said for years. He wants to play in the nfl until he's forty five. He just turned forty four but as he inches closer to the original goal. He won't set a firm timeline for his retirement and he told peter king. I'll know when the time is right. If i'm not a championship level quarterback than i'm not gonna play if i'm liability team. I mean no way. But if i think can win a championship then play you. Should this year fox bet has at the over under two and a half more seasons for brady and he is favored to call it a career. Sooner rather than later with the under at minus one fifty. I don't put anything into wins on radius. Retire here will let us know when he's going to retire. He's got a couple of big advantages. This offensive line there to best offensive lineman alley pet and tristan worse. Got a lot of years left. So he's got two very good offensive linemen and they're going to be around for a while they're not like it's not like the cult situation where they're left tackle was getting old and it's like okay now. We got to figure out left tackle again so their offensive line tristian worse was a home run so the offensive line. Which tom as we know. That's a big deal for time. And i also think. They have some flexibility. Even though we see a lot of these big contracts they still have a lot of young players and flexibility. I think they have the ability to eventually move one of their receivers and get something but receiver. Yeah so there. This roster is deep enough that if they get into a situation where listen. We need help tom on the line we need to. It's going to be there. There are really well run from a personnel standpoint. They've got a lot of options here and my takeaways. Two years two more years itam. That feels right to me well. You don't have to ask tom to do a whole lot. He doesn't need to be a mobile quarterback because offensive. Line is bad. He doesn't have to make all these extra taurel around. Plays like russell wilson. 'cause he he is so deep it receiver and titan. And he has time so he's in the perfect situation for a quarterback of his style and his age because now most of what he does can be cerebral. Doesn't need to be the all world class athlete. Which i. I've always felt like the tom. Brady is not athletic. Things a little overblown like he's clearly an athlete. And just relax on that like what. You're picking like lint out of your belly button talking about tom. Brady is not an athlete. get it. He didn't look great at the combine. His buddies changed a little bit since then. But i do think that he is an outlier. Like we talk about this. And derek carr wants to wait till this forty five and russell. Wilson is planning on playing for a long time. I think there will be one or two three older guys in the league that can still contribute in the way that they are in play at a high level because of what they have around them. But i do still think it's it's the. Nfl is going to be the norm to not play until you're forty five outlier there so justin feels. We'll beginning his first start for the bears in their final. Preseason game against the titans on saturday matinee says he expects feels to say in two quarters of the game so play the first half he also know that fields is ahead of where the team projected he would be before training camp. But andy doll. Who will sit. The final preseason game is still going to be the starter week one. I'm fine with that. I think each of these each of these situations is different. Kind of lump all these quarterback battles together and they're all very different like the saints are not in the same situation as the bears who are in the same situation as the niners are the same situation as the as the jags like. They're all very different situations and who knows what's going on with the eagles. I think with this situation like so much. What channing was talking about. Justin can make plays with his legs. We've seen a lot of that in the preseason. So maybe he isn't proficient in nfl. Defense's way that andy dalton is although i would probably argue that he's not proficient. He's just seen them. Andy is going to. He's going to give you the best chance to win now. Because he has the most experience make fewer mistakes fewer mistakes the problem with antidote lynn as the starter in my opinion is that the bears are in a situation where the gm and the coach coaching for jobs. And whenever you is an organization. Put a coach in that position. You are essentially saying you have to win now. Therefore eliminating that coaches natural ability to plan for the future of your organization that is human nature. You're not just gonna make sacrifices that could potentially put your job and your family in in jeopardy moving and having to go to another town and new job and all those. You're not going to do that. You're going to self preservation right. Anyone would do that. So i'm not judging them for doing that. I'm saying is an organisation. If you draft a young quarterback you should put the coach in a situation where he feels comfortable so that he can make the best decisions for that young quarterback joe. Now whether you keep that coach or not you can decide after that.
"stephan klay" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"He's not shoot and like weird thing he's he has this reputation of being a great shooter. But he's never really been able to come through on that and he didn't really have a role on the team last year. He filled in admirably as like their Role player do the dirty work. But that's not him. You know like i. It is a weird existence for calicoes coming into the league known as like a bucket. Get her and hasn't been able to do that at the league so you wonder. What is he to me. There's an element of corner kogo on with him where reputations just an instagram model. That's it he he's a he's a famous just he's he's an okay player and accord accord and okay tennis player but she was gorgeous and she was married to pablo. Bora is yet all these ads. And everything and it was all of the opportunities afforded to her represented a player that she wasn't right. She's getting the the looks that should have been going to the elites of our sport and she wasn't quite elite and i think the same is true of kuzma. He's a good player and in another universe he just be a good player. They're like oh yeah. Kouzmouk traded here. Okay 'cause sign there. That's a nice pickup for them. But he has like the starlike quality about him despite not being star player. And you know Is a good looking kid. And he's got endorsement deals and all that stuff but he's not really the attention and the the success at follows him off. The court isn't commensurate with what type of player years on the court. So damn when you say what is he like. Oh why didn't anyone want him. I don't think it's that nobody wants them. I think no one's like scrambling. I need to get coups bomb it. What else was interesting from tonight. Tom well just a kid. Like he's twenty six kakuta. He's not a prospect anymore. Dan like the idea of him fulfilling this potential. He's already there in his prime so already thin- says you know what a guy is within three years with very few exceptions right right so you talk about tonight. The biggest surprise for me is holy. Shit golden state golden state with the seventh pick and the fourteenth pick. Pick two of the three youngest players in the lottery. That is ball's like that is that is huge huge guts to do that. Because you're looking at steph curry draymond. Green clay conscious is the opposite of what stephan klay wanted. It isn't it it's it's the king pollen. You're falling for the banana tailpipe. I hate when we and in the tailpipe or they're gonna trae young piece is what's gonna happen you absolutely. So here's the deal you know you wanna get make a move whether it's bradley beal benjamin's whoever it is i want to deal for someone who is ready to help us win right now and i have these picks but the problem is one of the funny thing about the nba draft the number one overall pick or the seven pick. Whatever the pick is more valuable than the player you take with the pick. Let me say that again. The pick is more valuable than that player. You take with the pick meaning the moment you use the pick buying a new car the moment you drive off the lot automatically the value drops significantly it depreciates. Same thing even if kamenga was the best player in the draft. Him that the seven pick is more valuable than committed himself. And so if are the warriors you're saying i have probably zero intentions of keeping these guys. What players represent the most valuable to a team. That's acquiring them is at the twenty three year old guy to twenty two year. Old guy who you know as you said we kind of have a good feel for or is it the best athlete in the draft who we still haven't got so much upside potential and that's what they did. They went out and they got upside and potential. 'cause you can always sell people on that coming. is eighteen played for the g. league elite last year moody is nineteen point. Two years old point two. They're doing that. Now is really. We're doing and two months big night for the g. league or doing nineteen point two. Now you don't have to do. Nineteen point to in fact. I reject the idea that you have to do the others. Doing nineteen point two. You'll have to do nineteen points to i like to i like Tells me it tells me he just turned. Nineteen not one of these guys like. He's nineteen any turn twenty tomorrow. I mean as a fraction like twelve isn't isn't ten. Twelve months is in ten nineteen point. Two is the second month. That's what we're doing. That's no no in nineteen point. Two as twenty percent there to twenty he can. I don't know. But i mean but i wanna know. Doesn't that tell you something that they weren't able to get the max value for those picks meeting right before they like this morning trade. Those do picks for a player because we had a moment of silence for pascal siachen apparently kendrick perkins after the sky guards at number four. You know he said basically. Pascal siachen passed away. We need a moment of silence. It was it was shocking to hear that. Because i didn't. I didn't know he was going to go there. Kendrick perkins i was waiting to find out what he's talking about when they selected him. Barnes at number four perk says. We need to have a moment of science for pascal. Because he's gone like that picks that he's gone so to me. Pascal could've been had if they shop those picks to the the raptors. If you're telling me. I'm messiah usury. We'll try to raptors and i have the seventh pick the pick potentially wisemen potentially and andrew wiggins for pascal siaka. Do you do that deal if you're if you're the raptors if you're the raptors you do that deal but i don't think that was the deal that was made available right. I'd look at ben simmons. That package plus two more picks was what.

This is americans live now worship drillers american flop on the iheartradio app apple. Podcasts over you listen to podcasts. Tonight's judge not so tiny and baseball's finest face off in a mile high midsummer slug fest from horsfield in denver. It's the twenty twenty one. Mlb all star game presented by mastercard tonight at seven eastern on fox. Shohei ohtani behind me. Not tease Who is a remarkable player. Who's good at everything. Except they say defense It's you know it's like defense in the nba. There's a reason steph. Curry made more than ben wallace to stuff's about offense. We can't worry about a guy occasionally baubles grumble. Come on it's not. Nobody's going to baseball games to watch the best defensive teams what baseball needs is marketing and stars and flair and hits and and stealing. And that's what the all star game on fox about. Tonight's not the best defensive players all the time i got another against the offense defense wounds to improve the defense doesn't that's a great defense no longer wins championships. Because and this is very obvious. The league's make their money on television networks. He used to be. The league made money on join. I putting our butts in seats and drinking beers and parking are cars and buying a program. You're much more valuable as a television consumer. It's not that they don't care. They want you in the stadium. Nba owners want sixteen thousand and night but the big money is in the television contracts. And i'm worth more to a network is a viewer than i am sitting in your arena. And so the reality is how do i elevate my television ratings so i can go to networks and the nba is trying to triple their revenue in their next contract up in two or three years triplett how scoring shoot. He'll scoring ben wallace. A great player hall of famers. Not getting big shoe deals. Nfl to all of the new rules pretty much cater to the offense. Nothing against khalil mack. We're not watching television khalil mack. He's just a great player so that said to be really argue that the bucks defense is the reason why they won. Well was. I would argue. The bucks defense was good the year before but until tom brady's yes no of course brought it all together so in the end when i hear people say he's not much of a defensive player nobody he is filling stadiums he is selling merch because of the offense. And that's okay. You know it's funny. We don't ask all of our nba star steph. Curry didn't play defense. We don't ask them in the nfl. They don't even go to that side of the locker room at half but in baseball guys will get get chippy defensive player in the end. That's not going to the bottom line. If i ran a baseball team give me the offense performers in all sports patrick kane chicago blackhawks. I don't know if he was a good defender at all messy rinaldo. I don't know if they're good. I don't know if they can. If all i know is they. Put the ball in the net. And that's what i care about and that's what that's why we all watch games. It's not for scooping up ground balls joy with the news. Turn on the news. This is the third line news. Well another great offense players damian lillard and there's been some rumors swirling about his unhappiness portland's and many teams have decided to take the where there's smoke there's fire approach to discuss. Potential trade deals with dame forename and one of those teams golden state's according to anthony slater athletic he said would the warriors get involved. Yes they'd make a call and have already internally discussed the ideas i'm sure most contenders have considering the rise of smoke out of portland. Blazers decides to trade lillard a complete rebuild seems like the wisest path and there are many better rebuilding trade packages dangling out there right now so the proposed package would be james wiseman the seventh in the fourteenth pick in the upcoming drafts including future. I attached to andrew wiggins as a salary match filler. No now i. There's no way i'm going to have dame stephan klay thompson come back into my building and literally now. I would do it for klay thompson. Yup there's no way that there's no other word thompson will the others. There's absolutely no way. I'm gonna have dame steph klay come into my building that wiggins and some kid from gives i'm not doing if the warriors were in the east and dame was an dame asked out because dame is one to pull the trigger on all this if dame's as i want to be traded and the warriors were in east to their point. This is the best trade baggage you're gonna get the seventh and the fourteenth pick future. I and players. I'm not giving you a superstar and getting andrew wiggins in college guys now if you give me both lottery picks and clay. I'll do it. Gold argue is coming off of two injuries. I mean i think he's going to be fine. But at least i feel like i get a shooter. I got cj mccollum. I got to lottery picks. I've got all be better. Defensively like i think klay is going to be fine. I think his body. He'll be fine but there's no way especially in the west. I mean it can't do it because it's in the west. I agree with you but they were in the east. This is this is a nice package for dame if he wanted out now. Dave said he's not available and dame is not said he's denied asking to be traded so this is just more of a they are perennially. Disappointing dame is a superstar. He's in his prime. How much longer is he going to continue to end the season and disappointments and it's not like portland's a dysfunctional place. It's not but they need other pieces and there's just not that many superstars available. He's entering the first year of a four year deal and a contract extension. So he won't be unrestricted free agent and sold to twenty twenty five so he is wanted to make this begin. So ben simmons has been a hot topic of trade conversation and it's definitely going to continue to get hotter. Charles barkley's never been one to hold back. Doesn't think that. Ben simmons is a hot commodity. Got a serious issue on their hand has been situation 'cause i know philly's a very difficult town when things are going good and you know i hear all these fan about. We got a tree. Ben simmons but after watching him play and i know he's making thirty or forty million a year. What teeth and he's afraid to shoot the ball. What team wants to trade for that situation. There was a report this morning from shamsher. Rania that Trump shawny that the sixers have opened up trade conversations regarding simmons and have engaged teams. I think golden state works. They've got to elite shooters. They could use size. Wise men doesn't fit. I actually think he. I think he works for golden state and i think by the way i think those lottery picks and an andrew wiggins.
"stephan klay" Discussed on The Daily Zeitgeist
"And we're back. And i don't know why i key is trending. Oh man 'cause would you believe it. Apparently one of the stores in atlanta had a special juneteenth menu for their employees in atlanta georgia. Okay and they got this note that said to honor the perseverance of black americans and acknowledge the progress yet to be made. We observe juneteenth on saturday. June june nineteenth. We will also be showcasing. Accomplished of videos in honor of june t look out for a special menu which will include fried chicken watermelon mac and cheese potato salad t. o. E collard greens and candy dams. Are you fucking yama yama. Yeah what the fuck are y'all doing but like honestly this is just so whatever this this again. This created an entire backlash employees are like. I don't know if you guys know what's going on in this. I i worked at but twenty employees apparently called out sick. I'm completely off this shit and the other thing was Apparently going around that a lot of people saying like. I don't know who created this menu but from what we understand. No one was black. Who participated in this. Because i can't imagine a single black person but also look if you're completely in a room full of white people like isn't this good token person right. Fuck man yeah. I guess i'm quitting so look they said I ki- apparently said their spokesman when they were asked you know about this specific like were there any black employees that were part of this group that determine what this menu as these said that there were but could also no further details about that. So it's just a this is america. Yeah yeah but it was like at the local level was not like i was on. It wasn't american decision to do that yet. The managers at the store were the ones who created this special menu hooting watermelon which was fed to slaves on the day celebrating liberal. Yeah don't worry you on. You know anything about anything just you know. I guess he's making special. Menu was enough all right. Let's talk Ben simmons real quick I don't know mandate so the hate has gone too far for this man Like it's just one of the things is trending was draymond. Green is trending just because somebody compared simmons to draymond. And okay another thing. That's trending is a picture like at the all star game where he shooting from the top of the key and like all of the best players in the league are like one standing or i. It's like chris. Paul lebron luca ad. Everyone's just standing there lebron's literally pointing at him and laughing hand gesture is in like that we are palm is up. Yeah posting like like. It's really is mean man. 'cause like so much of what goes on. Simmons is like mental like the is shooting with the wrong hand. Yeah he's a better shooter with his right hand like there. He can shoot with his right hand. He doesn't like there's just so much going on. Yeah you you brought up on zo as like a corollary because like when you see it in frozen like in picture form it looks like he has similar form to lonzo but lonzo makes the shots. Yeah well he changed his form and was able to start making threes. And so it makes you ask the question. Why doesn't simmons do that. But that's the reason is because it's a mental thing with him. It's never going to happen for him. This photo i mean if if i were like his performance coach i'd be like calling his entourage. Destroy everything that has a screen on it right now. yes. And i'm gonna take him to a place where we cannot be contacted by any kind of social media or digital media and just work on protecting our wellness but yeah it's tough to see because you know on some level to really be the one of these athletes you're gonna have to navigate this kinda shit and still have the resolve to back yourself in competition and yeah when when you're dealing with like a platform where you're very sensitive and stuff like that. It's a part of me like my heart breaks like a hall man me too. I don't know if he can survive that most. Do krona's millions of dollars. But that's that's what sports do you. Yeah i mean. It's i i do think like they need to find a new home a new situation for him because there are teams on which he would be awesome like people are talking about the warriors if you put him on the warriors and he's just surrounded by stephan klay like that. I mean. shoot the ball. Yeah well be fun to watch around like he he you make him basically the The andrew bogut seventy two win season. Vote like andrew bogut except he's like one of the best athletes in the league and one of the best passers in the league like that would be preah but yeah it's just it's he's an he's in a bad situation. The philly fan base is going to be. You know hard to win back over. Yeah no hate to see it. Yeah it's not. I mean it's it is what it is but i mean i think there is some level of i mean i think in general the athletes do get so much abuse online. Exactly it's pretty fucked up. And i'm like i'm from straight up just like you suck abuse to racial abuse like it's all over and you get why some people completely stay off of it and then for the people that do like god shit that you gotta fuck and constantly here like how the fuck like. I don't know how i don't know how they do it But you know hats off to those that do and then finally super producer on a jose just sent us a picture of porky pig from the new from the new space jam. I believe it looks like yeah and He's dressed like he forty. I know it is kind of ood. Type porky pig vibes with his fuck invest. It's the frames though too definitely looks like e porky finds a rally But yeah do it do it for vallejo. One time do for vallejo one time. This is the most interested. I've been seen in seeing that space. Jam movie seeing porky pig. Like a down. If they're like having like weird leg kind of cultural like synapse connections of like well porky pig has like a you know off kilter way of speaking and forty you know right has that has that kind of flow. That's a little off kilter like that. I don't know that that's more interesting me than just like space jam. But with lebron her. I don't know but it also seems like they're doing interesting stuff with all the warner brothers properties. So who knows it'll dope. Did you see that statement from lebron where he was like.
NBA 2020 Predictions
"About My tween twenty bold predictions now. This isn't just for the regular season. This is for the off season. This is the beginning of next season to these addiction that I think that potentially could happen. I'm going to say them here today. And maybe you can agree with me some. You may think this crazy in some you might agree with. We'll have to see my first pro. Prediction is that both L. A.. Neither one of the LA teams will not make the Western Conference finals. I think a team will beat them or since the clippers. Don't take care too much about seeding in the Lakers. Stay the number one seed if the clippers land four or five. They'll play the clippers in the second row. They'll play Lakers around. which would men? 'cause obviously semifinals matchup US and other Western Conference finals match. But I also feel like there may be a team that could upset me maybe Houston is probably the most likely that could upset one of the LA teams and. I think that they're going to keep them from making the the the Western Conference finals. I know a lot of people were expecting that to happen. A lot of people are wanting to happen. I'm sure it will be great for the Lee but I really think that that's something in my opinion that I think is going to happen. That's one of my first. Bold predictions of the twenty twenty season in further on my eh prediction is that the Golden State Warriors will form another super team. Now I don't know if there's going to be with Jaanus. It could be a cry towns because Golden State is monitoring situation but Golden State clearly knows. Listen with the way the League is if we want to be on topic how can we need to get an update US another super team together and I think that they're definitely trying very hard to get another another star player in there now. I do like that. Probably means that's the end of Draymond Green. But I think that's what they're aiming for taming to get their aiming to get another star in there to see to come back with clay and to come back with Steph potentially really they can make you trade for star because they if they do get a top three lottery pig. deathly do not be surprised. If they try to make a trade with that pick honestly they honestly could have just picked up an amazing asset for them because they could use that as trade bait in. That's good trait rate. You know maybe the team star is disgruntled. Maybe you never know. I mean this isn't somebody would think about like the sons have another bad year. We'll we'll give you our top pick and another guy. And we want Devon Booker. Obviously Yona how that work I mean you know. They're kind of doing the right now. And the end of the Russell even yeah no. We Really Devon Booker may be a better player Neanderthal Russell. But that's definitely a prediction I think could potentially happen. I think that the warriors warriors will form another super team. But it's not going to be as top heavy instrument of Kevin Durant who like the second best player in the League. That's why think if they got Jaanus it would be stacked because of state Stephan Klay can play like they play and then they completely put a better supporting cast around. Then you could say okay. Yeah this team is going to be very tough to beat. Even laker teams have a team. They may be looking up to but it will have to see because if they get any towns houses. This is a great player but we don't view him as view when Kevin Durant was there which means even though it would be very top heavy west conference. But that's when also and my pro predictions one of my other pro predictions. Are I think that revenue from the C.. BA will increase which will lead to more players undeserving of big major contracts. Getting big major contracts. I'm going to say any names. But it's like okay. Well I'll say this because I don't know if he's GonNa get it but there are people who are sometimes wonder now dre walgreens supposed to be a free agent this offseason offseason Draymond Green. We know he's not a guy who's going to score points we can do live. And he's a great gadget player. I would say but some people wonder. Would somebody pay draymond green the Max would they give draymond green that Max deal. That is something they definitely wonder about and like a question. Like why would you give you Max. If if there's more money to be spent draymond green could potentially ask for Max and if you like laundry a month you might give them close to it. I mean we already have players now. who try to sign that? First Max deal then take a shorter deal. Just didn't end up getting of that. Ten Year supermax dill. But you know it's one of those those things where I think that this will lead to more players being signed overpaid and I mean you obviously can see more cat room. It can lead the teams being in very weird financial situations with cap every team six Performing up to expectation and then you played a lot of guys a lot of money who may have never actually deserve the money in the first place so. I think that that's going to be something that's going to be interesting another addiction I have is. I think that James Harden will make it to the NBA Finals Cheer. I know that's pretty big. That basically means you're saying he's GonNa beat one or both La Teams. I think James Harden. This would be the best year for him to do it. I think right now this I flew. This is his best year do it. So I'M GONNA go ahead mcnabb. Oh predicts names hard. It's GonNa make the finals. These the rockets are GonNa make the finals. This may be shocking to you. But that's how I feel. I feel like that. Jr potentially do it. I feel like if he was able to average at least thirty in the playoffs and Russell could give him about twenty twenty three. That's fifty three between the two players and they have some good supporting cast. You can't forget about. PJ Tucker can't forget about Erik. Gordon Clink Appel. You definitely feel like they have all the potential attention in the world so potentially be a top team and so I would not be surprised if they end up being the top team they think they can be and making it to the NBA NBA finals. This year in basically just creating just such a great agree moment for the city Houston also another prediction. I think Diane if he comes back as soon as they say he come back. We'll still win rookie of the year. I think Zaylon has all the talents. Be A star of Zion. Comes back in balls out in just twenty points a game in gives you a lot of highlight plays. I think he will be able to squeeze out winning rookie year only only playing half of the year again. That's a pretty bold prediction but as I've anybody can do a Zairean can all takes his cause. Remember even the Luca one owned by a lot last year. You trae young exciting second half which made it interesting and don't be. We don't feel like John Moran is doing with Luca Danni last year so it's not as far fetched is not as it's not like oh it's completely impossible for Luca played so well and then trae young play well in the New Year but he's still play. Okay well it's like John Mirant is playing. Maybe the best right now. But he's not playing at local level from last year so of Zion can have maybe a trae young like surge in the second half of the season. I think he'll go ahead and win the rookie year. But it all depends on when he gets back. 'cause I do if he didn't get back to maybe mid February with that he wouldn't. It's only two months left in the season. At that point. He has to probably get back to move in the next two weeks and then just start going on a tear from game one because dial is full practice recently so he's clearly about to get there. Obviously you've seen him take jumpers you've seen him dunk Donc so I definitely things I on can win the rookie year if he gets back in time and my last bowl prediction is that the Atlanta Hawks will add a star player. This off season. I don't know who but I feel. They're gonNA add some but I feel like some of the issues they've had I flipped. They're going to add a star. Because I feel like you need to especially to make trae WANNA stay there because rotations rumblings that he might and I wanna stay. That may be something that you may want to do. If Your Hawks Front office you need to add some talent in their yep some good young talent but you're going to you know how it is as league view in a win you're gonNA have to give up that good young talent for solidified star. Obviously I feel like trays untouchable. But maybe Kevin Heard. Or maybe you D Andre One hundred maybe a cam reddish maybe push them shelby John Collins and I think they're gonNA make a trade for a proven star in this league and we'll have to see whoever that star is how far the Atlanta Hawks may potentially get because of it but that's it for me thank you for listening listening to the GMC football basketball podcast on the GMC podcast network.

Do the Warriors need Kevin Durant to beat the Blazers?
"Before going down with this strain right calf in game five of their series against the rockets. K D was averaging thirty four points in thirty nine minutes per game. The warriors were able to take care of the rockets and six about Katie the Richard. They need him to come back quickly to win this series against the blaze. No. And I'll say. With with the warriors only had to play good basketball. Right. And they could beat everyone else without him. They have to play great basketball, and they are capable of playing great basketball. So they don't need him. But the level of focus that they have to play with and their room for error, obviously Rauscher substantially, but if the warriors played great basketball, even without Katie they can still win a championship. I feel like with Steph smiling like you you kinda saw him. Look, they he knows that they need K D. But there was a little rice smile on steps face when he was doing what he was doing in Houston. Yeah. I mean, I remember talking to staff the first year that Kevin Durant got there. And there was a pride to him that he doesn't like to show us. Sometimes there's a, you know, if they didn't get Kevin Durant. Like, she still believes that he can go and be the guy that wants Seventy-three game without Kevin Durant. So I I think they're in this place now where they they believe they can beat the blazers. I think they would have a harder time in the finals if they get past Portland because they won't have the best player on the court. Right, right. If you're John. Janas or choi- if they don't get to if they get to the finals? I don't think they have the best player in the court and in years. Do you think he's do you think why this better than Hawaii? What I'll say this. I'll say that Steph before Katie got their one-two MVP. Right. And then he took a step back because Kevin Durant was so great. So I'm not ready to say that camping Durant off that team that Steph isn't a top two or top three player. Like you saw what he did in that second hand he had his worst half ever followed up by his best happy ever. So that lets you know that there's a lot more in their him and Claire both in their prime. Right. I agree. It's close clear both in their probably this series, though comes down to whether or not the warriors back court can stop the trailblazers back, quite right. And when we say words backwards. I don't mean. Stephan Klay, trying to stop Damian CJ. I mean, Andrea thank Klay matching up with CJ. Dave. And that is historically been a tough match-up for those. Yeah. No, it's going to be a great match up. I think the fact that both of these teams are banged up. Right. I think you've gotta give both of these teams a credit for being so greedy. So tough not worried about their team who's not healthy. We're just going to go out there and play our best basketball. And I think as a compliment to them the these two teams have two of the three top scoring back courts in the NBA warriors were second and the blazers were third Houston was number one. With James harden having this crazy season with that said when you encompass everything offense defense, the whole thing. How close are these two backwards? I think I still give the warriors. Yeah. Right. Because I'm I'm also including Andre Goodall in that. Because I I he he does take that defensive match up when they go against CJ it. I mean, it's it's closed. They've narrowed the gap, but you know, Klay Thompson as a two way player. I don't think there's anybody on the blazers who could match what he does Andrei as two way player.
