Do Positions Even Matter Anymore?
"Now i'm joined by yahoo serious so he and she wrote this article about draymond green. She wrote an article about the idea. That draymond green is almost a position unto himself that now new players come into the league or filling in so i wanna talk to her about that and i thought it was a fascinating piece because you identified a bunch of guys use value. I think are were only just now starting to understand so before we get into our conversation about like positions and howard thinking about positions in the league across the board. Just tell me a little bit. About what attracted you to this idea in the first place like was there a big bang moment that you were like i think i ll adore is also part of this yet actually was I was watching. I was watching the rockets take on the thunder in the playoffs. And there are a few moments where statement just couldn't close out on pj talker. Who's obviously pointing the five. And then they had to madore at the five and he's six four was already crazy. The pj tucker six five center was starting and that was a response to that. It was a natural response and it was the right response. Underplayed way better with him at the five and they went away from it. Which is i think why they lost the series and it was just kind of interesting to me you know. You didn't have a workers in the playoffs. But stephen adams is being squeezed on both sides. He just can't get away from this thing. That dream on started like on one end. It's we can't defend on the other end like there's there's this young guy who's coming for a spot and he watched even again. We're gonna talk about this later. But if you watch stephen adams now not exactly fitting offense. No i mean. I almost wonder whether or not steven adams was like an enormous tax locker room. Guy like that that he was brought in. Now you can almost make the argument that he's there to give veteran leadership and just like established like a certain culture at the pelicans. Because obviously encore doesn't really work the way. I don't buy that at all veteran leadership. I can these signs of guys and then they're like yeah. That'll that'll play well. They had drew holiday last year. They found jj radic for the past two years. They have veteran leader. Sure especially since. I feel like grip is also read coyotes piece earlier this week. Try to roll bledsoe into that as well as like. No no no you guys go up bledsoe on the back end of that deal. Because that's we got. I see what they were trying to do. Which is like they have like the young guys and then they have like this mix of old guy so that young guys never turned into the wolves and wind up not knowing how like which way is up and all but they're only like a few steps better than the wolves to host stephen adams this much money also the wolves beat down. Yes that's true. How are they really. They made the wolves. Look real smart on offense. Yes which is impossible so wanted to ask you about this idea that i've been thinking about especially as regards to ben simmons which i think has become like a little bit of an obsession of mine this season. But it's like where is he appropriately situated on the court. There's like the physical like. Where does he stand part. And then there is the conceptual like do we think of him as a point guard. Do we think of a four or are we starting to introduce like a certain new kind of lexicon of the way we think about players. Like whether it's the dunker or like a cook cling cappella roller or a guy. Who is you know. There's all sorts of a huge constellation of terms. We use. Is that a better way to think about these guys in does change their value at all. Because i thought like your idea here that the draymond is almost a new position. Now you could look for was fascinating and there's no question to me that it changes the value of the players of one of the things. I noticed while reporting that article was just the fact that once you name something you start seeing it everywhere like tournament use that you see in life all the time and it was. It was pointed to detrimental. These guys because they were doing things in the court and a lot of the people i talked to. Just one of the things to that stuck out was scouts. Were just like you. Just don't don't doubt winning. If the guy has contributed to winning plays this was this was wrong. One of the college scouts said scouted grant williams. So if the guy's making winning plays don't outsmart yourself just because you can't find a way to put it in a box. It's probably something that you don't quite understand yet just because you can't understand it doesn't mean it's not effective in that definitely plays a role with a lot of guys in the league. So yeah tha t to that point a changes your changes your value just because like this league is a lot more because a lot more than i think people realize it. A lot of people are out to win. Press conferences in if you can't quite explain what you're going for with certain player. I think it makes it harder for you to recognize. It also makes it harder for you to sell which matters on every level matters when you're scouting and you're trying to convince your head coach your your gm or somebody else and then for the gm. It's like trying to convince the owner. Then you know that's gonna be that's gonna be defined the depending on the franchise you are. Some of that is going to be defined by the media will perceive a certain selection to Be it's interesting. i think i'm kind of. I'm kind of going to this place whereby my pet theory now watching the heat watching the sixers has become that you can. You're allowed to have if you really smart. And if the other shooters are andrew or really good they can make plays. You're allowed to have two guys. That aren't very good shooting on the court
Blazers Beat Thunder as Damian Lillard Outplays Russell Westbrook
"Portland Trail Blazers verse the Oklahoma City thunder. This question because I feel like this is huge. This wish team has the most lose by first round exit. Because. Okay. So yes, by it's okay. Has the most to lose year most Bassac AC wash rest. This is their team to all stars when MVP candidate and the ex VP and they can't do much of their roster for next year. So this is there for three years unless they trade a Stephen Adams or something. So they definitely got the most lose. But they stayed alive was a good thing for them. Russell Westbrook came out and played his game. Which is perfect, and they Billy Donovan changed some shit. Isn't that crazy the colts Billy Donovan as some chains ads the clipboard a job but play last shot? That's the guy who. Chains that he may was Russell Westbrook's Nygaard Damian Lillard last night. He was on African no which could be a great day for us a west because he didn't have to use so much energy chasing, Damian Lillard. And this is also what kills me Russell. You can't talk shit today. If you're not guarding him the first game he killed you. And you do Shane does. Let them go. You can't do that. If he killed her first games. You ain't do sit. And you all yes, I did.

"And you learn now he's trying. Reform stuff, but hold on. Okay. Are you doing Paul George Stephen Adams dinner Schreuder, Jeremy grant mall, having career is that because of George or that because russys change in attitude not shooting his much? He's looking the passer even hockey assist. He's making more all, but your j- actually one Russ's respect, which is almost impossible due Russ defers to Paul George. He is the number one option. He was young. He was a young stallion to do. He was he was he was bucking. If you book guy, I don't know about the town did book the right in the Golden State. He has some point times.

No. You look I mentioned Jordan and eighty eight Russ and seventeen har- is not going to be a triple double or anything like, but it is historic what he's doing. So that's the one thing that he's second. I got him second rights here behind you off the wilt stats his points per game will be just barely second to MJ's, right? He average thirty thirty in Kobe. He's thirty thirty five thirty minute highlight, your he wouldn't. Yeah. So it's historic. So. Okay. Chris you're gonna come back later. We'll talk a bit more warriors actually coming up next. But hey, Jason Witten. He is coming back. So what's old is new again is he going to be Dax new favorite? On this guy. Whitton shocked everyone yesterday when he announced he's leaving the Monday night football booth and returning to the Cowboys he agreed to a one year deal that could pay him up to five million dollars. Wind turns thirty seven in may yesterday. He said, quote this team has a great group of rising young stars. And I want to help them make a run at a championship. So skip. Yes. This is your team. Yes. It is. Do you have any concerns with Whitten coming back? And I remind everyone I'm an objective. Cal. Obviously, I lay it on the line everyday. You do. So I do have some concerns. But first of all let me just say Jason Witten going on thirty seven years of age as a blocker as an extra offensive lineman in the clutch third down catcher the football.

No. But that's a whole nother. Is better than Rico, and I'm afraid Rico's not long for the world. That's just a guess. I hope I'm wrong about that. They did carry four tight ends this year. So maybe, you know, who am I care if I they might carry five concerns? Yes. You know, why? Because this did hit me when I saw the breaking news, and I sat back, and I thought about what am I gonna tweet about this? Has Jason Witten ever won the Super Bowl. No. Is he Shannon Sharpe of leaders? I can't go that far, right? Has has Jason Witten done much in the postseason. No, he's two and six they they beat the eagles when he was young player member when they turn around and beat him at the end of the regular season beat him in a playoff game right next week at both Jerry world. Donovan McNabb is kind of the end of the McNabb right era. Ryan race off to. Yep. And they beat Detroit maybe they stole the game a little bit. They did.

Plus, Stephen Adams me grant, they all picked up their games, and that's a credit to Westbrook. It is it is really all accredited west.

Lopez getting checked in three minutes later, just dropping the ball on grant. I guess it was better than this guy's being. I do like the potential matchup of Stephen Adams versus Robin Lopez. I think that would be a good heavyweight bout. There's a part where like, Robin. Lopez is trying to point super heart at somebody. But Stephen Adams hasn't by the wrist and like Robin Lopez Cam move his hand, which is crazy because Robin Lopez it's huge too. Adams like if he's in the fight. He's just like grabbing a guy back I just anymore. Yeah. I can't remember who it was a couple of weeks ago. Someone pushed even Adams just band. So it was it really coli Stein. Maybe it was a skinny big. Like, Stephen Adams is just got that crazy straight. He's not even the strongest person. Scary. Jesus. I loved her in the two thousand sixteen Olympics. What you in silver? Thank I don't know. She met owed. But oh, really. Yeah. She's metal before I believe what is pretty nice here in Atlanta. But yet still want hit the beach. Anyway, I do I do let's do it. it. You want to take a little bit of that water met splash down on the sale you build a sand castle. Let's see. Emphasize. I'm not crushing the bottle at all. I'm gingerly touching it. I'm taking a sip. And this is the Santa mix. So you were drinking water. I don't know. How here's here's. Here's my best. Guess what happened? Yeah. There you go before we started the show the deadly knocked like over the bottle a little bit a little bit probably, and then sort of grabbing it you grabbed it quick. Maybe you sort of accidentally crushed it a little bit. You know what I mean? And then when you put it back on the table, and then went for that sip. The first time during the show, it's sort of did the pop back the rebound. Yeah. I love crushing it. I think that's what happened crushing it all guys being dude. We're on the beach reading your tweets in your emails. Our first one is from Zach Zach writes starters, I believe I have an interesting topic that I haven't heard you guys mentioned yet Darren FOX is having a breakout your so far I don't wanna piss off skeets, but he's my front runner for most improved player. So far the question I have for you guys is will FOX make the all star game. And does he deserve to make it to where he got do keep it up again that's from Zach. So there's there's two parts one. The most improved seeing FOX's name being thrown around a long this. I just hate it. Because I think it's silly to give to a second year player. We don't need to go over that time and time again, but would you consider him the front runner? No. Because I don't know. Any second-year player out of the equation take away your earn rules? Do you consider him to win it the based on the way the award get one? I understand the question of. No, I don't think he's going. I don't I think the last second year player to win. I don't know if. Was it ever happened? That would be hilarious Pacific. Can you play? His never won. Oh, I'm hated the idea of even considering that person for most Most Pruitt. pruitt. Oh, well, yeah. Because you're the one that wants to have a front runner care. But I'm saying if these would doesn't get why. There's a good reason to buy you should improve. Wow. It's crazy to think you should improve in your second year in the NBA guys improve guys just sit on a bench for an entire year. Like Bill, Ben Simmons, Bill Simmons has also. Ben Simmons and not Bill seven son, Ben Simmons. He's also improved as well. I'm sure but anyway, been some should won most improved. Yes. Hey, bro. I'm just saying. Anyway..
Are people sleeping on the Oklahoma City Thunder
"I want to get to another team in the west. That's been a surprise. Obviously we're talking about the nuggets. But how about the thunder Paul George had twenty five fourth quarter points and Russell Westbrook past Jason Kidd on the all time list for most triple doubles has the thunder win again. Okay. See has jumped all the way to second in the west guys. Let's not forget Russell, Westbrook's real real good. Stephen it. Are you buying thunder as real contenders combine them by them? I think Russell Russell Westbrook is a superstar in this league. Yes. And he is the he's the most ruthless competitor. There is in the word. Everybody that's not wearing the same uniform for those forty eight Paul George is something special and the watch him continue to Bob considering the injuries that he incurred. I give him a lot of credit where credit is due right now. He's averaging about twenty four point three games. Stephen Adams is obviously good. And then you look at some of the young talent grant and entrusted to pick up a forgot land. Big Tom pickup. I like what I'm seeing from them. I still don't have them go into the conference finals. Obviously, even though if the players would to begin today, it will be the Lakers vs Golden State in the first round. And then the legs will home, I'm thinking, nobody. But the Golden State out west would beat the Lakers in the postseason. But I will tell you go Oklahoma City is a force to be reckoned with because without having to deal with the whole mellow issue. And it's just about the big two in Stephen Adams in young talent that game Schroeder coming off the bench. I got to admit I'm very impressed with what I'm seeing from the Oklahoma City thunder right now, I. Cannot take my eyes off of them. I don't say it don't say they'll say, I'm kind of hoping the rockets don't get good this year. It's look so bad for Carmelo right now. Like, you take them off the team look at how much better they get. And I understand they're deeper and there are certain differences in the team. Now, then forget about Carmelo several years ago. But but but not take this team versus the team that failed against Golden State in game seven at oracle several years ago. Yes. There are some differences that make a difference. But we all know the NBA at the highest level is about your very best players guys. They pose zero threat to the warriors because they couldn't get past the warriors before the warriors had K de Paul Georgia's excellent is he is is not K D. And now Katy is on the warriors. So since their two best players used to be K, D And Westbrook. And now, it's K D And Paul George and now the team that they couldn't get past as Addie, Katie. There's no way for them to beat the warriors. There are threat to anyone

"I mean, Trey young twenty shots in twenty five minutes was he really trying to do a lot in this first matchup of his against a Steph curry who's to whom he so often been compared. Yeah. I think there were much actually thought Steph did a pretty good job guarding trae young. He had the primary matchup and was getting into his space a lot. So then that was making young more of a driver. And so he was driving a passing. And you know, he there were a couple of plays where it looked trae young was going to get necess-. But that the guy missed the shot it happens. But I didn't think most of Young's will looks were particularly clean of his threes off the top of my head. I think maybe two of them were ones that I would have expected a normal guy to hit and trae young is obviously typically better shooter than that. But yeah, I thought that he he had a tough go of it overall and Taurean prince at have night, the only guy who and this isn't a surprise. I mean, something we looked at in the fifteen sixty I think John Collins is really going to thrive. Playing with trae young I wished they could play a more at center just because that way that you could have more spacing in there wouldn't be as much congestion. But he's gonna get looks and Collins looked more comfortable to jump shot. I eat some of his misses were those he tried to three actually in this game. But I think that it's going to be a part of it at some point over the next couple of years and watching him were closely this game. I don't think he's that far off and young had seven turnovers all in the first half, which was just an insane. A at and young. I mean, he, yeah, he might lead the league in turnovers and he's certainly in the league in minutes right now. Let's turn to Detroit o k c I saw the first half of this one. It was not close after that. Okay. See just absolutely throttling. Detroit. One ten to eighty three six out of three to three point shooting for the pistons who remain among the leads worst in that category. But you know, occas he wasn't much better. They were seven out of twenty five Stephen Adams, absolutely dominated Andre Drummond in the first half. Of this game. He ended up plus twenty five for the game. With fifteen points arms are note, those Germany grant who also only missed one shot. He had fifteen points. Seeven Adams was seven of eight from the field seven of seven from the foul line plus twenty one and under Drummond just put on a clinic of how to be inefficient while being six foot eleven with a seven five wingspan and a lot of strengthen pretty good leaper. He had a sequence of four SRI possessions. One of the last of which came after he'd been sat down for a while the first one Detroit gets a steal. But although Casey's guys are back. It's three on five. He decides to take the ball from the wing and just put a bunch of dribble moves on a guard turns Ferguson, eat a three on five situation. So you're going against the guard as a big man without a great handle. And you got plenty of help their ends up getting stripped next play. He's on the right wing. I wanna say like an offense rebound may be bounced out to him standing there. He looks to pass it back to the top of the key. Here's the crowd. Roar for him to take the three decides to take the three. It's Ivan close now. Next possession. He catches the ball at.

"Goto? Will these like Stephen Adams de'andre Jordan in the Lakers have two of them in jail McGhee Tyson Chandler, so on the office aside joke is able to step away from the basket clearly takes DeVille McGee anti out of their comfort zone garden out on the floor dribble. Handoff open jump shots back doors and on the other says those guys are primarily there to catch lives on the officer side of the ball. He would just clogging up the paint. Everyone knows highlights you just show when LeBron's James drove joke into a standing right there. They had terrific plan against LeBron James to keep him out of the paint. The Laker struggle shooting outside the paint. They struggled mightily from three lost big time. And I don't think this Lakers roster is going to be Lakers roster in win. It starts getting warmer. Let's say that how do you think they're gonna make a move who you think they make a move for their? Going to pick somebody up like Tyson Chandler, or are they going to trade some of their young court. So it's tough. Because if you look at the Lakers, there's a set of two teams you have the one year contract veterans. Beasley Rondo lands. Okay. And then you have the rookie contract players that you want to show promise ball Ingram, Kouzmin heart. So you can't really get real value for the guys on the rookie contracts. There isn't much value for the guys on one year contracts. However, the person that they did pay the last couple of years a lot of money to play basketball TV's, call will poke that now becomes an asset that you tried to pair with one of your young players and see if you can get an all-star level player in return. The problem is I don't think you get off star level in return for one of the Lakers. Young core. If it's not cooling. I don't think you get it for Ingram. I don't think you get it for ball. So a team like Washington wants to move Bradley Bill that doesn't get the deal. So it's gonna be interesting to see how they remake this roster the nuggets one of the best teams in the Western Conference. But they don't get talked about too much, especially in these sort of like national shows, and that they don't have a lot of like being fans outside of Denver and team like the warriors the warriors the Lakers, they do have this kind of national following in those fans find their way into the nuggets arena. And Mike Malone was asked about that wanted to converse. With a finger. And we understand we play. These are the best play every and when he comes to town and the Laker fans carry, but as long as their fans disappointed, that's all I care about. So the bore your fans could come in here Celtic fans and commend here. Laker fans take that way. Who take that take that L on the way out? I love that so much Mike Melillo shelter moving on Jalen rose..
