"I just feel like unit would be it would be with like an. It'd be completely voluntary right. So maybe the that maybe the nato team throws them like a smaller stipend may be. Hey come play for a week and we'll give you ten grand or something like that. I get while for a three on three tournament though not be worth the prospects while because they're risking their potential revenue stream in the future. Which is their body that they used to play hockey with so i three three tournament wouldn't work the only way you could get prospect. Actually come is to market it as a developmental league and use it to show more casual fans prospects before they get to the nhl and try and get your more casual fans more interested in prospect development. And things like that. But i don't think it would be a big stage. I mean imagine a like a big stage for players like thomas harley for play dog jason robertson liquids pageantry of big stage though. You're not gonna get it on. Nbc end the biggest stage. It's going to get on his a tv. I don't think so. I don't ass out. I ever seen in the ideally game on nbc on nbc. If the nhl can get on espn with their regular games with the regular stars because there will be regular stars that would come in and play. Now i'm not saying that it would be you know. One hundred percent of the league stars would come and play in this Three on three summer league or whatever but it would be. I think you would have some and you could show showcase those players. You could showcase the talent. I mean you can give people like assistant coaches opportunities to teach and lead in game where there's no pressure stuff like that. Right anders incentive for hockey player to go. And do that right. But if there is nothing i mean what what do would you use. I don't know that. But that's what i'm saying. Is that if something like this would work. There have to be incentive for the players and for the tv contracts and whoever else involved in okay. I agree with that if it could work. Though it'd be really cool. And i would love it but the we're gonna speak logistically not really much of a chance of inhabiting the the other argument that i would make for doing some really like this. Is it it. it wouldn't be a lot of money but again what's the biggest thing we keep hearing about from these images owners. We lost three point. Eight billion dollars over this past year and a half. This would be a way for them to recoup some of those assets if they did a summer league but i do want to mention what you kind of already talked about is why does the nhl not do a summer league in the nba does in. Obviously the biggest thing is that hockey comes with a lot. More risks right. Would you agree with that. Yeah that and the more complicated nature of how a prospect becomes any player in hockey so from basketball. You basically go high school college in be if you're good enough. Obviously that's best case scenario. But if you're a hockey player your path is a lot different. I mean you're going when you're a teenager like just barely a teenager. You're starting to go to junior clubs and from there you go into an actual junior league and from there you go to a minor league maybe and from there. Hopefully you guarantee you're getting drafted and from there. Hopefully you're the is a lot more steps and there's a lot more different ways for to happen to like in the nba like there's rare rare times when a player goes from high school to the nba..

"It's not not happy. I'm sure the apps real tough for rangers fans but the nice thing is that he did live a long life so he did he was able to Live a full eighty years out in he was there. Was this really cute video that i saw on twitter but there was a rangers fan who obviously was evade. She was older. He was like in his fifties or sixties and he had a iran iran. I almost ron. I did say. Ron rod gilbert jersey on and they were he was like down on the bowl watching the warm ups While the players are getting ready for the game and rod gilbert saw the jersey came up behind him and and tapped him on the shoulder in and kinda surprised fans so that. That was a cool. Little cucolo video. I saw on twitter. So you know thoughts and prayers to the whole gilbert for that And also This does not seem like a good offseason for a you know these players passing away and unfortunately a jimmy hayes who can jumped around the league little bit passed away. At the age thirty-one he is the brother of current philadelphia flyers key kevin hayes so he signed that massive contract and philadelphia a couple of years ago. And that's his brother and we we don't know any details about How he passed away or why passed away but He he does leave behind the wife in a two year. Old a two month old. So prayers out especially to the the whole family and again another tragic situation whatever. It is We're praying for the hayes family there and then one other thing that happened over the past week was there is a A car accident involving three junior hockey players up in canada and they were only sixteen years of age so Just lots of Sad news coming out of the coming out of the hockey world this past week christian. Yeah i mean a i really. The thing that struck me most was the second thing you talked about. I forget his name but the the thirty one yet. Jimmy hayes who died. I saw a lot of hockey players all across like twitter and instagram really posting about that in a kind of like makes you think about how close that community really is together. These players are really friends. They're they're they're co workers realized what they are. They're not just competitors. Teammates served their co workers in a sense so it is really cool to see that they have that kind of brotherhood together. But it's of course it's a. It's a sad situation but it's good to know that they have that community together now. It's always amazing to see when people pass away especially at a young age and just the impact that they make on people's lives a lot of the time you you see it just based off of social media and you can obviously see the impact jimmy hayes had on the hockey world in specifically it. Sounds like the. I think it was a boston area. because i think he went to boston college and played hockey there and he was a big deal. There so Again prayers to all three of those families. The family of rod gilbert new york legend jimmy hayes and also the family of the victims of the junior hockey players. That passed away in the Car accident last week Two let's get a good way to segue into the next kind of news from the past couple week from this past week but Let's get into this next thing.
Detroit Pistons Sign Luka Garza
"Luke garza could actually become a real. Nba player that guy that one collegiate player of the year and yet nobody wanted and is drafted in the nba draft What ended up with twenty and fourteen or something. Last night he was. He was outstanding Again he has dow signed a two way deal. So luger's who does nobody been. It's he'll end up getting four The pistons but luca garza signed a two two way deal. He of course had a historic collegiate career at iowa. But he was you know by all accounts slow-footed big played near around the basket and so was of no use to people in the nba. And yet he made threes. He put up to huge double doubles and in their finale. Last night ends it with twenty one point and fifteen rebounds and got himself a two way contract so the luka garza dream is still alive after getting selected fifty second in the nba draft. He was good and he's fun. You know he's a real throwback but I i love the idea of becoming you know. Just the there's i went back and looked kevin. There's never been a guy like you by where this has happened work. I becomes the naismith player of the year in college basketball. Nobody wants him now. Not all of them have panned out. I e like the tyler hands boroughs but tolerance was like a lottery pick. I think frank mason might be the lowest and he was like at the beginning of the second round nobody. There's not even close to being selected. Fiftieth or fifty. Second whatever you've picked.

"So i think that he obviously showed that he's capable shooting guard there to play alongside fred vanfleet Malachi flynn and practice chew both showed out really well in the summer league. Giving you a little bit of promise that you know the young talent that you do have in your system could actually flourish a little bit. I don't see that many back. End teams in the nfc and the the atlantic division kind of competing with them or excuse me the the The eastern conference. But you know are we talking about a a real threat to any of the top three teams in the east. No but i do think that they have a playoff playoff hopefuls for sure. Yeah i can almost guarantee. I'll be giving out on this podcast. You know some sort of raptors team till our window to lower rather to make the playoffs. I always find a way to get sucked into these kind of teams speaking summer league dan. Luca garza like munoz said twenty one points and fifteen rebounds as the pistons win three straight to close out summer league So you know munoz's stand out putting up big numbers tonight but any other thoughts on the atlantic vision. Here we gone on. We'll get out of here. But i any final brought you guys want to get off your chest thing that's all i had You know kind of looks. Like the class of the atlantic division is going to beat the brooklyn nets and then and i think boston the mood that they may. They'll i think they'll be competitive that you know we're kind of waiting to see you know with the sixers what they do with ben simmons and then the identity of toronto raptors and and new york. He'll be back in competing at the level that they were last season but definitely a division that one of the upper ones. I mean many given season of these all. These teams are competitive in good seen in the past. I think this could be probably one of the most difficult divisions in the entire british fear. All five of these teams are going to be disappointed if they don't make the playoffs and you know for brooklyn and philly in boston probably disappointed. They don't make second round of the playoffs for brooklyn. You know even deeper than that. Dan anything else. You want to get out now. Good but i think that Munaf clothes that are really well. I do think that you know while there's division is probably one of the most competitive in the league I think we'll see you know it's gonna be brooklyn versus everybody else pretty much and then either there's going to be a dog or a dog fight between the knicks. This the sixers. Probably the boston celtics project and the come in last in the division. But i think the knicks that nixon philadelphia matchup is going to be really interesting this year.

"You guys have brought this up. They've been playing a lot more like a veteran group than in a summer league team based on the combination of rest that fifty five assists in their last two games including thirty three assists gaming. That's wild for summer league. of course i'm here breaking down the xs and os You know kick enough for for to Championship go the celtics as well. Any thoughts on this total here. Not what he what he got the total in game. Yeah i think like you mentioned that. That's gonna be a clash of saw two different styles ride mentioned sacramento with defensive mindset and just pure. Shooter said the boston celtics apps and how well their offense has been playing in the summer league I think he's really come down. So i mean it kind of sounds stupid but if celtics are gonna make their shots i think this game is gonna go over. I mean just disappears. I mean a guy that we haven't talked about sam houser house. Just been so good for the boston celtics. He's been shooting lights out We talked about all the shooters. I think one thing to keep in mind Is we're not sure if paid richard is gonna play this game Out a tweet that he was going back to vegas for the championship game but the coaching staff hasn't made the decision if it makes sense for him to play or not in this game so look out for that news tomorrow. I think that's an important information because pain address. Probably been one of the best. If not the best player in the summer league but i'll lean towards the over Like you mentioned that december leagues. I really known for For defense i. It's more often to making shots on us out the over here but i do love the boston. Celtics smarter to win this championship Tamar ed page of pain richard. I believe left the bubble to put up a ninety two point scoring performance. Casual ninety national is the casual ninety two in the portland program which is where he's from so i'm sure that game was important to him but yeah i mean definitely wasn't taking the day off you know just having a casual ninety two. Hopefully he's allowed to play in his game. That's that's a great point. I mean you know. Get your beat writer following For the celtics in in order your bed in this game because that's the best player on the floor up in the air for tomorrow. Dan any final thoughts on this summer league championship game. No other thoughts on the game. But i thought i i enjoyed the summer league overall. Man i wish i was able to to get out there but hopefully next year can can actually make that journey but Yeah it great. Seeing a lot of the rookies you know. I was very impressed by tyree. Smacky play two games camp. Thomas of the brooklyn nets was just an assassin from the field man and You know i think it was. It was great over us..

Did you guys see chimpanzee metu throwing hands. Yes so you know. His team comes in but spread here a two and a half Moon up you. You were the one who's is. I mean early thoughts on his game. How these two teams have been playing Coming up into this championship game. Yeah man the celtics. Add just been acidly. Crushing eight-man offensively. I think they're leading in most of the offensive categories points points per game shooting And this is obviously just stack with so many good players calling it. They're the the super team of of the nba similarly because it's mostly the role players. Are the bench. Players are going to be playing. A boston have aaron niece. Myth pain pritchard Royal lane for carson edward so this stack mandate they're knocking down three point shots Sacramento on the other hand with david mitchell there in some of the other guys that they have this is going to be a good final But celtics have an absolutely crushing there. They're shooting has just been just so throughout dishonorably yet. They're coming in with a summer league. I twenty one Point differential and adding. That actually is how they came into this game..

"Like, we need, we need to get serious here. We need to just, just, let's see what it looks. Like. They've got like a game Left Of Summer League in the regular season. Just give us, give us paid like as the guy once that's all I'm asking Killian still needs killing needs way more development time than what day does clearly, but I just want to see it. Like I just one k to get the ball. Bring it up every time run that offense because when you did that God, how many open shots did Detroit miss the Cade? Or was it was Swift seen that movie a little bit and like they have enough shooting on the regular season. I think it's going to be fine. Like I don't think that it's going to be anything resembling, what we sought Oklahoma City or Oklahoma State. I'm sorry, but like man, dead. I mean, he had I think it was like two assists in that game. He probably should have had a in like, he probably created, like, twelve shots or he admits that wage at a bunch of hockey assist to, like the past before I pass, and he does that stuff that don't doesn't necessarily show up in the box where every play and just sort of this, like, offensive connector. I didn't like the pairing with Killian. Hey, suspect, the first game, it can work. I'm not completely writing off yet, but clearly has to be less dribble. Dominant, and just get your ass move quicker and maybe part of it for us in the especially is off. I'm just so accustomed after the year, Oklahoma state that somehow, someway caters influencing every plan, the offense, and that first game, they're just way too many where he sat in the corner and watched and off. But I think because of that, the kid takes the first game, Ur, hot and heavy. He he hit a couple threes and it seemed like he may have Thirty and cools down cold bad turnover as he dribbled it. Hi lost the ball lacked some touch on Flushing Maybe the bus water first game. That was number one. And meanwhile down the street. Jalen green has what twenty-three the first twenty three and five in his debut nine 4:18 for the field and then they match up. And I thought one of the cool things was they matched up like they guard each other. It wasn't this is Cade versus Jalen. They were squaring up back and forth and it was hyped up to start and it was slow and not a 3-1. Jalen green gets caught in the screen and goes under and you could tell that that aided heard and it was influenced his game and heard how good Jaylynn had been a took. A personally, once we got going, had a hard drive crash, test driving this for a score reflects to the crowd, mean my, my kind of holdups with Kate a little bit as positive. I think it was, I didn't think you'd quite great but the numbers were so good enough. You can't lose it by 25th is going to be mostly this. Hang dribble, hesitation pullback, jumper guy, rather than that. Bursty lead guard coming off a ball screen. So we have to be okay with that. If he's the conductor, the offense wage. It's not always going to be highlights, like you said, and often times. It's a smart Sound Decision that may not pop know, I think that's totally right and like people were comparing him to Chris Middleton off pre-draft and he's just like, I think drastically better Prospect than Chris Middleton was..

"Wow this class has a chance to be extraordinary. I mean we saw jalen suggs making outstanding play after outstanding. Play his game for orlando scottie. Barnes shining for toronto jalen green. Just looking extraordinary with some of the step bax but it wasn't just the top ten guys. It's down the line. No we're seeing so many good performances trae murphy going off for the pelicans we're seeing flashes up and down this entire first-round into the second round. And you know like you said the college basketball year was not great for a lot of different reasons but this draft class itself could be really loaded and you know even though it might be overreacting just after a week or so some summer league games and just a couple of days a vegas summer league here with all thirty teams there. Yeah do this class does really have a chance to be special. I thought it was very interesting. You're certainly right. Nobody in the top five biggs will say so. Far deals anything. But great about their situation. Given the debuts of cunningham and mobely barnes and then who am i missing who was green so great in his first night right those five guys and inevitably somebody's not get a pan out and you look back and once upon a time we all got crazy nervous about trae young at summer league so again. It's not the end all be all i. I am of the opinion that when you are watching these guys. I'm looking for in many cases. Just what is not summer league good. What is something that you see them doing. That is easily translatable. And that's the great thing about these guys. Is that so many of them. You watch them and you say that is easily translatable to the nba in the end spaces space right if i could come behind the screen and occupy berry shots. Like that's going to happen as soon as it starts right. If i can split guys off the dribble if i've got great footwork if i'm a dog that tried to block everything at the rim like all those things are translatable right. Sometimes you're going to have good shooting night some nights you not but there's a lot of things you can look for. I think and i think there's a real reason to be very very optimistic. In many cases of these rookies All the way down the line. You know you were talking about you. Know trae murphy. I watched the game last night. That had cam thomas in it from lsu who averaged twenty three points a game for lsu. I mean he. They said he's going to be able to get buckets. There's no question he's gonna get buckets in like it wasn't even super-efficient night for us. Nineteen point six and sixteen but it was the way in which he generated. Those shot opportunity saw him get to the line get to the basket. His ability to create space off the dribble. Like you said guys are going to have on shooting nights off shooting nights like you know. We're not overreacting hair to to to summer league games for some guys one summer league game for others. It's just about like trae murphy. It's not just that he's hitting standstill threes. That's going to space before his eye on. Its that he's full on sprinting. Up the floor catching the ball hopping to stop and elevate straight into his jump. Shot in draining threes. All net is the fact that at six foot nine. He's showing the athleticism inside the poster donkey. He had to play. Maybe some four zahn maybe five well however you want to state it..

"Welcome back to the job here in las vegas. It's some reliigous satisfying into to the olympics. Over in tokyo as the men's team defeated. France eighty seven to eighty two to take the gold medal. We also had kevin durant guys passing carmelo anthony. During the games he became team. Usa's all time leading score in olympic competition that came with eight twenty nine points gold medal. Performance led the way fourth straight gold. It was durant's third windhorst. Was there for us. And he's got a little more on durant stature as a pillar of team. Usa there were many who were surprised. Kevin durant decided to play the tokyo olympics to those who know him. They would have been surprised if he didn't durant missed a year and a half with his achilles injury suffered in two thousand nineteen. He didn't get to try to win. That lasts tied with the warriors. He didn't try to get to make title run in the bubble his first year with the nets so when durant was presented with a chance to win a third gold. The idea of staying on the sidelines was ridiculous to him. Durant has everything you can in the world of basketball scoring titles. Mvp's finals mvp's nba. Titles olympic golds world cups. His resume is impeccable. He has nothing left to win and nothing left to prove but he loves playing the game. Some players try to avoid getting hurt to durant the hurt. His void plumbing was the same reason that ten years ago this week he showed up at rucker park and left everyone who saw him put up sixty six points with an unforgettable experience..

"He's going to understand the assignment. Okay but i don't think that's enough to make to get this over trump. When you look russell westbrook statistical best year was back in the twenty six twenty seven season. Lebron averaged a double-double season. But that was the first time he'd done that so you argue that he didn't even that formula for him has not equated to necessarily success and then mellow i love my little getting ring. The door ability of this team continues to be a question. Especially when you're young stud who supposedly. The way has never played in eighty two game season now. He did get to seventy five three times. But still i just i think is going to be great but i don't know that that impact is going to get this team over the hump. They got you more clear. They have nothing to do with mellow in my mind. Well one thing about it is. They always seem has to do is get the playoffs. Let me tell you let me tell you why back and just listen. I don't because here's what we know. When you get a group of guys like this right that noted. They want to accomplish winning the championship. Like i was on the two thousand ten of boston celtics. We pretty much had old team. When you come together collectively you your old. We have received while he had a bad back. Although we didn't win we had kindergarten. They're like those guys. Were getting up in age but when you have the mindset of put pride aside and doing what's best for the team like maybe lebron james plan power for position. Anthony davis plan the five. The white house was still jumped by jim. And i think people don't give russell westbrook enough credit for his decision. Making is a guy that lead the nba lanzhou in this. He says a lot of g. League guys wow neil. I think you're probably not wrong in that assessment and back a recent conversation. I was having compared this group to the lakers. They got there and couldn't clear bright. I just think the west is waiting for anchors. The west is not waiting like i. Just don't see where there's enough i just don't you dare me. I'll leave. I'm telling you this. I one thing about it that we fail the realizes that the one the most important piece is anthony davis. Can they help. But when he is healthy he dominated in great fashion. Did he not able yes. Yeah risk that he can't. He's not healthy. There have been seasons. He's been healthy and you just identified some of the. It's just a risk. Sometimes it works out sometimes. He's had some bad luck. Do your health so in the seven game series. United one team. That could beat the lakers. I think okay. That's a little time. I think the warriors are reloading. And i think the utah jazz are going to have the experience to what the milwaukee bucks have had in terms of say. Did you watch another western conference team. We gotta talk about luca danni coming off of course a strong olympic performance. This man is about to get paid. According to our own mcmahon a mavericks contingent including dirk nowitzki mark. Cuban museum nico harrison. They brought everybody and they have arrived in slovenia to present luca with his two hundred. Seven million dollar supermax harrison video. Just turkovich ski walking around not attracting any attention or anything. Not wear masks over the course outdoors. I look kendrick. What more do they need to do to build a team around luca that the mavericks could get into this argument..

We've got some basketball going on behind us. And i want to keep the summer league theme rolling here guys because yesterday we'll we showed little bit jalen. Green went to work in his summer league. Debut nine of eighteen from the field. Twenty three points five rebounds two dimes in the rockets win over cleveland. So kendrick what was your biggest takeaway from jalen. Green's debut everything look and he is. This is why troy weaver in the detroit. Pistons will defeat the about taking this kid number one. He is must see tv. He has swagger anytime. You said rollers shorts three times. He's very confident and he showed us dead. Look jalen green is a superstar making. I said this last year by lamelo ball guys must see tv and right now. He's the only plan niche draft. That i will spend my hard earned money to to take my kids to buy seekers to watch your blink Yes scotty barnes. Who played in the game prior to that one would like to have work because he had a great game as well but i will say this jalen i think is one thing we know your athletic. We know your skill. it's one thing to be going. But the ebbs and flows of that game particularly in the fourth quarter and this is a contest going back and forth once and a half. We saw is like a coral second-year player on the other end for cleveland. They was john at one another naturally in a basketball kind of way. Nothing to be concerned about their but in the big time moments of this game he was able to show up and knock down baskets for his team. Not just fill it up but a second villanova isn't it somewhat having that pro experience. It's not teams about in the draft the k. I played in the last year. I know how to play grown-up asked actually asked him about that post game and i said you know you're walking experiment and testament to what team ignite can be and he said himself. The goal of team mcknight is to make frozen. So it's my job to come out here and show. That's what my team is doing. Brian shaw say he's doing pretty well.

"Do you think dame to the sisters even realistic trade discussion do with. I mean look with smoke. Deaths fi okay and dame put ownership on the front office. He said. sit back. I'm gonna watch which i'll do during the draft a watch which i'll do during free agency and to be honest they fail. They actually failed. They didn't really do you. Look at the denver nuggets. They approve their roster. You look at the lakers. They have proved their roster. Even the utah jazz improved whilst being signing back. Cpi three. I've thought a used for them was picking up the veterans avail mcgee district case de'andre getting wanna know sponsor again like he did bound which is not right. You get you get a veteran light. Javale mcgee but look right now and i hate to say it because i want to be able to coach a superstar like dame but i think we're seeing dame rabbit come out because dame like rapid for dame is his therapy right now i just see it. It's a possibility can happen. Ben simmons is answering the phone calls. He don't wanna be in with the seventy sixers when i heard. He's leagues willing not to report to train account like an. We'll go as far as it's a for him to get out of philly soul. I say with smokers five purchase. Slip that in there at the end i did. He say that last part again. You've heard that he is willing not to show up to try and account that he would not show trying to care and that he's willing to sit out elber loan until he gets out of philly put the is emoji on tv. That's what i would do to that conversation. We give you the face. Yeah exactly so. I kinda feel like on the flipside perk. It's going to require that level of being adamant from day to get it done. Because i just don't see why portland would do it unless we respect all that you've given us city. We know we got it while you're still in your prime at. I don't know portland is ready to kick the can in that way and is dame dug in in terms of this thing potentially being reminiscent of what we saw. James harden have to do the. The trade in and of itself is excellent. If you're the philadelphia seventy sixers. I just don't know portland is there. I think that's the key to if you the portland trailblazers you might not get another player like damian lillard for what ten years twenty years. How long did it take milwaukee to get janas after kareem abdul-jabbar forty years. There's no guarantee you're going to end up with another damian lillard anytime soon so i think for the blazers dame would have to go and ask them for a train and that is the difficult position that some of these players are in. He's the one who signed that supermax contract so he is locked into that contract for another four years and teams can trade you at any time despite any contract that you sign the players. Don't have that outlet so they either can go and ask for a trade but that puts the onus on them to feel like they're betraying their community. What's their loyalty. And there's all kinds of words that we flinging around toward them and then they do a. Jv dead then they're malcontent and it's just. It's a difficult position for these guys to be in the teams. Don't have that side. I mean look. James is one example. But it's not what you do is how you do it. And i'm gonna go back to the point of kevin gone near right carried. The minnesota timberwolves for high of the long and he turned thirty one years of age. And said you know what this is not for me. And he said that this hall of fame speech. The only regret that. I have is not exa for trade or coming to boston sooner to try to win. Championships and damian lillard is thirty one like you don't wanna have no regret those regrets. If he's really adamant about winning a championship is going to be interesting. We will keep watching. And especially after perk space this year. The ben simmons situation as well because that deal may need to get done certain rather than later expresses all new and may do express you from the stretches teams in the game to confidence boosting suits that.

"Rachel nichols our mba camp kendrick perkins and this is the one and only monica mcnutt the hoya destroy our here. People summer league started the nba. Calendar never stops. But we gotta talk before we move onto. What's behind us about a golden weekend for team. Usa because man started the men's teams. We're going to get both teams and love here. Kevin durant guys twenty nine points to lead team. Usa to that gold medal. Defeating france eighty seven to eighty two. This was durant's third medal gold to go along with two nba championships. Yes assigned a new one hundred eighty nine million dollar contract with the nets on friday. So it's a good week. Kevin durant i mean. When is it not kendrick. We gotta start with you. You were so impressed but durand's performance in the olympics. You tweeted on sunday. The katie is the greatest score ever so the floor is yours friend. Make your case. Well first of all right you look. I feel like richard is somewhere in here like because this is his seat. And i'm usually sitting right there and i'm able to really hide everything that i gained. Menam front cinna so everything is taking alam look alike all good though. Kevin durant is the greatest going down to touch the basketball when you look at a guy. Let's seven one foot. He's not six hundred. Seventy seven four two seven one with his ability to get his spots aldo is so underrated. His three ball is so underrated. Turnarounds over bozo. The visibly he has zero flaws and when you watch them in the olympics a law watching what he'd done throughout the postseason and what he did to the second round. Look you kill born in this. I'm not worried about the olympic team. Why because they have kevin durant. You're right thanks guy. Every single season that is in forty denied. The i agree one hundred and i have. What do you expect this early on. did just used. Rj okay actually have some soon upgrade. Here i have no parts in the shafts. Partly coming away my brother. That's not me. But i agree. And actually think another underrated aspect of katie's game that we don't see it consistently and he's a terrific defender when he wants to lock in. And i think we saw that in particular when his team and needed to lockdown france and make sure that there was no questions about which team was going to be dominant in addition to his size. Spare his skill set. I find the gap. Somebody find the whole thank. There is not a hole in his game. And so i had caught a lot of flack off the twitter streets for katie. Was running the league. When i take about a month ago but i'm an on the katie bus shuttle to the three zero one yesterday from although okay i i love the all agree here but i gotta throughout some other names right so you know what i'm gonna say i write per. Do you want to tell her. Because she should know by the way being local maryland. Dc girl a georgetown. Girls what am i going to say. I'm gonna say iverson is in that conversation. I understand. he's at the top of most people's lists and that's okay. He can just be at the top of my list. Because i happen to think he's the goat of all time no matter what no matter what conversation. We're having clothes shoes personality basketball. Just general human. You know i call him. Our greatest living american. This conversation look four times scoring champ rate. Obviously one on one could get past anyone you have. I don't know michael jeffrey jordan. Also a topic of conversation here. Kobe bryant somebody who a lot of people would say hit. A contested shot better than anyone else. Michael jordan won the scoring title. Ten times iverson when it four times. I mean k. d. by the way it's impressive. How many times. He's won it when he's never even been the only star in his team when you look at all these guys. Why is it k. D. comes out on top over. Mj over koby. Well why guy. Here's where we talk about kobe. And we talked about a. I'll give the nod katie because efficiency. Right he so officiant guy that in the playoffs was shooting like fifty seven percent which are contested. Fadeaway away tools outside the bank His easter pull up trade and now they're like give him over. Jay is katie. Had a better shot meaning three point three ball right. Mta got spy pause. Those elbows want to pull ups around the mia range of a area but katie was his trade ball. Yeah the three definitely stands out because even more recent for me richard. I was like all right. Well what about. Brian and he was already aboard earlier in his career he was about three hundred brown was initially. I just go back to the size fat if you were to give all these guys. Whoever you think your greatest defender was right and you know put them. I a five. You cannot defend katie size. Like i just. I see a world in which he's been able to glean from all the great names that you've mentioned and is able to execute those moves similarly and then raises at seven one six thirteen whatever he likes to be called ease with which he can score and i'm not saying it's easy because that took so much work but the ease that he has earned created for himself with that work is so impressive. And then when you say there's no holes katie's game again it's the work and we see so many guys it's appropriate. We're having a discussion here summer league. We see so many guys who come in with this fantastic just talent and the skills they've developed either in college or playing a europe row on their way to here and the kind of great. I made it made the nba and the truly great wisely. Take their start here and they work and improve and improve just the way katy's gotten better defensively has been so impressive all of that being said my answer to any question gustav de ice cream. Alan iverson i'm just telling you people all right. I want to shift over to the women's squad because it is give them their due time. I am telling you britney. Griner unstoppable finishing with thirty points team. Usa.

"So those three guys will be there. They're pretty much their depth than you know. Going up against the bulls who they're going to be playing another guy. Patrick williams top five pick last year. Probably won't play the whole summer league. But i think we saw his offensive game start to emerge a little bit towards the end of last season. Couple that with a quite a few young players that they have that they're going to be a pretty good team at least enough today to to take care of the new orleans. Pelicans who really have much depth. Yes so maybe look to fade the pelicans throughout this summer league. Anything else on biggest. I mean there's topsy ton stand out players maybe later in the week and we do our later show. We can get some Actually specific like getting getting into a slate of summer league games with all the time that i any other takeaways or things. You guys want to mention on vegas summer league real quick. The chicago squad. Jalen adams is a bucket. Doesn't really play defense. But as i said earlier this summer leagues in about defense. Aol dot to sumo Second round pick out of illinois like going to be a beach jerome robinson. Got some decent time for the wizards last year And put up some really good fantasy number. So i think he would obviously be a a really good pickup in terms of like planning summer league and then amari spelman who from villanova kind of in and out of the league but definitely has nba pedigree. So i mean. I think that this squad has way more talent around them Than the pelicans. Squad but yeah One also mentioned is a coral looked. really good. so like the cleveland. The cleveland cavaliers. Curious to see how evan mobile kind of comes about. I think we saw his size. He's definitely light in the ass. A little bit like that is going to have to hit the weight room but i think we saw what the upside of globally is but is like a coral looks like. He's going to be a hooper. So watch out for cleveland If he's going to continue to play. I get he'll i bet he'll be shut down towards the end of the summer league. Yes sir without take one final break here and we're gonna come back with some closing thoughts where we get out of here as episodes also brought to you by paramount.

"Think, about this for a second, does world class leadership look like charismatic energetic bold? Now I got another one for you. What does class leadership actually do? Lead from the front take charge standout as the all star performer. Well, certainly, there are cases where all those things are true, but what's crazy is that sometimes? The greatest leadership comes from the most unexpected places from the Ramsey network. This is the entree leadership podcast where we help. Business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host. Alex Judd today. We get to talk with Sam Walker. A sports journalists who became absolutely obsessed with one question. What did the most dominant? Dominant teams in human history have in common and when I say of says folks I mean obsessed. It became a twelve year rabbit hole that came to a conclusion that is absolutely jaw dropping now. The book that details everything Sam found is called the captain class, and was named one of the best business books in two thousand, seventeen by CNBC the new. York Times Forbes in sports illustrated, but this whole preoccupation with champions didn't come from Sam's time with the Red Sox, or with the Bulls, it came from the bombers, his little league baseball team. Yeah the only good grade team I've ever been on. And it came out of nowhere I was in sixth thanks, fifth or sixth grade and. I played with these kids for my neighborhood. We always had the same team. We were terrible. Hopeless and. We lost a little league. You Know Summer League and we really getting beat up all the time, but one year I don't know what happened. You know I just don't know why, but suddenly you know. We started winning, and we had this kid from a different town who came in with pitching, and he's pretty good, and it just all fell together, and it was this magical spirits. I mean. Mean we got to the point where we knew we were win. You know and we won and we won every single game. We won the city championship. It was just our parents were baffled I. Mean they're sitting there? Like whose kids are these? You know and we knew that we weren't any different. We the same the same hopeless. You guys you slide balls. ROLE BETWEEN OUR LEGS strike out. Swinging, but something something was different, and I got really obsessed i. kind of assumed when I. was that age that this would happen again I would. I would experience this again and you only really never did I play. Sports play played on some decent teams, but never a great one and. I went through most of my career in journalism, and I finally got to a great team at the Wall Street. Journal the Sports Team that we started was was like that I think, but but I never happened again. I was baffled and I felt like I needed to figure out. It was always in the back of my head. Like what was that? And how do you achieve that? And what is that magical alchemy? It's not. Not Talent it's something else. And what is that I think that was one of the things that really pushed me towards this topic, and it sounds like that passion or that question was just reinforced by the work. You're doing in sports journalism by what you were seeing in locker rooms and gains. Is that right? It's totally true. I mean I think you gravitate to things that are strange to you or that you don't understand. You know, I started as a sports writer. You know my first assignment. Funny enough was the Chicago Bulls. You know Michael Jordan's second game back from his charmer, so I saw a lot of these great teams up close and. I saw a lot of bad teams two teams. We're supposed to be great, but then didn't cut it for some reason and. It was fascinating to me because I thought. I knew what a great team was. My job was weird. I I really cover championships major events so I spent a lot of time around the great teams, and I had a sense for what a great team was like when it was all together, but I didn't completely understand what that was. What was that thing that they had? And really it all came together, and I decided to start writing this book in two thousand four, when I spent a lot of time with the Boston Red Sox I mean from the early days of spring training I was with them all the time and more time than I'd ever spent with another team and. I think much I thought they were funny. Group of guys and they were really entertaining, but they didn't have that serious purpose that I'd seen in great teams and. Sure enough in the middle of summer they were left for dead I mean there are nine and a half games back of the Yankees? Everyone just gave up on them and. Then, all of a sudden August, something happened and something just clicked, and they were completely different team. They just came that unstoppable force like all those other teams I've seen, and of course the rest is history. They came back and made the playoffs and. Took down the Yankees after losing the first three games, and won their first world series and eighty something years and This is famous team. Right and I missed. You know I didn't what happened like. I felt like something. There's something more than talent. There's something more than strategy. There's something about the chemistry of people that makes group great, and I became obsessed with that and decided that I had to just really dive in and try to figure it out, and when you set out to answer that question like what is that thing? What is that a serial? The thing that I can't quite label but I know it's there. What is that thing were? Were you thinking Oh man. This is going to be a book, or this is GonNa, take a long time to figure out. What was your thought process? Then saying I was immediate I thought he will come for the Wall Street Journal. I wrote a column nine hundred column. I was like Oh. I'm just GONNA go get here. The best teams in I'll take I'll spend a week. Looking at and I'll say Oh, here's what it is. Problem solved. And I realized right away. That was not going to happen, and it turns project. It just kept growing and growing, and I realized that it was just a giant rabbit hole. And I just went right down and. Well I'm so glad. You went down the rabbit hole, though but twelve years twelve years. That's how long the research took. Own Word it's crazy. It was crazy. I could've written I in five books and that time.

"We're talking weeks plus here from again July third and whether we find out from I'm from Colli as soon as we're done recording this July fourth or or somewhere down the line so it's it's weird because he feels like he really truly feels like the last guy left especially obviously big talented guts cousins there still but it's really quiet hi and that's it right yeah I would say so then you got a couple more brothers and a Rashawn Rondo but yeah it's him for sure. The two two thousand eleven was her two thousand fourteen. I'm looking at a two thousand fourteen calendar elves and don't don't listen to me who cares about Lebron that time because we we were at some relief and and I do remember it was the first Friday that we were there because we were supposed to do a half hour show Lebron signed with the cavs yeah and they said hey you wanna do an hour show instead instead but that wasn't July eleventh. Was I think it was I mean I think it was July eleven two thousand fourteen. I don't don't hold me to that but it was definitely we were in some release. It was much further on July and you're right it was we were going to I think it was our first. Show is going to be our first show lever for Summer League with our so I'm struggling to Google as I talk struggling to Google two thousand four calendar only talking about here July eleven to to raise the first Friday we we were there <hes> crazy crazy <hes> so look we'll see again. We tried to wait out Colli as long as we possibly could like. I'll just wait until he announced it but there are a million things to talk about here so we're going to find out soon enough. I don't know what my gut says anymore. All season long I thought he was leaving and now I then they miraculously do in a title. I thought you're like Oh. I guess I I mean in a way. Why wouldn't he stay now? He you can't really go wrong. That's the funny part I mean. I don't know if they're really truly a wrong decision. He can make your tries to repeat with extremely well run organization with Messiahs area leading the way and still talented guys. Danny Green probably ends up joining them for that matter waiting. He's one of these names that still available. That's true plays with Lebron A._D.. That'd be alright though some people think well. Why would he want that? He seems like he's US seem like he wants to be like the third banana on a team or even the second banana <hes> Lebron saying oh no no. It's your team is your team. I'M GONNA be gone soon. I want to go play with my son in the future is going to be your team like whether or not you believe that clippers another well run organization of unbelievable job sort of get back in the public conscious got gritty tough pieces there and he could lead that team. I don't think they'd be championship favorites by any means if you plucked plot coli in there right away but they'd be building on something so am wrong and yes you're playing with Lebron Anthony Davis. You're the favorite in the western conference but it's our it's also a shallow team does that matter to quite Leonard that they're not ten deep keep that they really have those guys cal Kuzma Troy Daniels endured deadly under contract. I don't know we really don't know at all. I don't know what he wants. If a superfan wants to count how many times we say I don't know on this podcast has at least me I'll definitely be saying now.

If the NBA opens an office in either L A or Vegas in the next five years and G league showcase their summer league is like a mega event. I love summer league. I just I have I got one Vegas trip. In me. I have one six day stint in Vegas. Why love every second of it? I just don't wanna go back. Why can't we have the G league? Showcase in Chicago. Why can't we have in Texas? Why can't we why does it have to be this January? Why does it have to be in Toronto by the free? Go to Chicago in January. You want to go to Vegas again. You don't even go to summer Vegas. You know, where they should do it next year? And you're gonna laugh, and it's a hometown thing. It -lanta is opening up a vine really Jim ten minutes from the airport that has a non stop to literally every place in the world. Like like just do it in college park. You know, do Atlanta's, you know, can be chilly in January. It's not great. But you're not gonna be. I'm not walking up Michigan. Avenue in January and Chicago. Are you kidding me?
What youll get with Warriors hall pass
"You're listening to the spoken edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. What you'll get with warriors hall pass. What if every pro and college team in the bay area puts donation boxes at the entrances giving every fan the chance to drop in one dollar for fire relief, no way, this would happen. But if the raiders had the chats, how fast would they trade Derek Carr straight up for Jimmy Garoppolo all anybody really wanted from car last week was a my bad a simple admission that he made a huge mistake by grounding a pass on that fourth and fifth play late against the chargers. He had to at least lofta floaty in the general direction of anyone in raiders gear. Everybody knows that was a mistake. Almost everybody genius. Bruce Jenkins idea of holding the NBA all star game team choosing just before the game at the arena. Such brilliant thinking by Jenkins is not surprising. I'm pretty sure he invented the twenty four second clock. Small suggestion to augment Jenkins idea paint the court to look like cracked blacktop. Hey raiders. You know? Okay. Is going to sue you. So why wait make plans now to play all your home games next season in London? You won't have to deal with the Hayden apathy. You would be sure to experience in Oakland. And every week you'll play an opponent throw enough kilter by the time change and travel. Once again, the NBA is light years ahead of other pro leagues in moving toward gender equality in hiring officials just as they were and are in hiring minority coaches the league signed two more female refs. And now three the NBA summer league featured several female refs, if you wanna work toward fairness, you have to work toward fairness, speaking of a quality, how can President Trump award Babe Ruth medal of freedom and not give one to satchel page page at a similar stature and cultural impact though, much of it was lost on white America. Remember left? Yo duels, the great hoffbrau sports bar and as baseball strike near union square that venerable joint close two years ago, but springs to life Tuesday at fisherman's wharf. It remains to be seen how much of the charm transfers over. But owner Nick Bovis is really hanging all the historic photos. Plus a lot more stuff. Nick says he wants to be a place to go to have a good memory. Lebron James passed the late Wilt Chamberlain last week on the NBA's all time scoring list when I contacted wilt for a comment he didn't say anything just smiled and held up a piece of paper with a big one hundred scrawled on it, the raiders owner in an exclusive interview with ESPN said, I always look in the mirror and the buck stops with me. It should be noted that Davis was responding to a question about the raiders long run of failure not to a query about haircuts. Davis also said of he and general manager Reggie McKenzie. We've gotta look in the mirror and figure out where the hell did we go wrong in trying to build this thing? So in the search for solutions to the teams deep problems an important tool will be mirrors and maybe smoke.
College basketball rules changes: NCAA makes major overhaul to rulebook in wake of FBI probe
"You might have heard that the NCAA announced some rule changes yesterday based on recommend. Nations from the rice commission. We'll be talking more about this tonight on assembly call radio, but suffice it to say most informed college basketball observers are not convinced these rule changes will do much of anything to actually curb the problems that led to last season's infamous FBI investigations, and most of the rule change headlines don't really reflect the nuance of real life application. For example, the headline college players who declare for the draft but don't get drafted will now be able to return to school sounds pretty good, but the practical fine print reality is that it's not all players who declare, it's only players who received an invite to the combine, but then didn't get drafted. This is a very small number of players annually since most players invited to the combine do end up getting drafted. Also, the deadline to return to school is before NBA summer league, and almost any player within even a prayers chance of getting drafted is likely to make a summer league team. Will those players pass up that opportunity to return to school? In short, it's a good rule change. So make no mistake. That players who fit this criteria should have this choice, but the reality of the impact is unlikely to match the headline. And this goes for many of the rule changes announced on Wednesday. The potential problem is that other rule changes like those dealing with summer basketball and with agents may have unintended negative consequences that do more harm than good and even other rule changes like those dealing with players having agents could in practice actually worsen the problems. These rule changes were intended to
Lakers, LeBron James and LeBron discussed on First Take
"What's going on. Everybody welcome. I take Molly came here and we have some major. Exciting news here on I take. I am so happy. So Maxon Stephen may be on vacation, but they are getting ready to take on the Big Apple. I take officially moving to a new studio in New York City. The debut show airs on Labor Day, September, third. So we may be changing the location, but you can still expect the same hot towards debate. And of course, lots of special guests and surprises to welcome the show to New York in speaking of a voice. I miss Steven, you're on the phone. Hey, how's vacation going in your discreet location? Disclose location? Yes. I'm loving loving. Neely, I, you know, I relaxed enough to get ready to beat up on Maxwell another year. And what have you that's a given look comes with the territory, but I mean credibly excited that we're moving to New York City both myself and maximum native New Yorkers. It's been a long time coming. It's something that pleaded in baseball for years, and finally it's happening. So I'm incredibly excited. Yes, I am Stephen, I cannot wait. And I think one of the major things I'm excited about is obviously, you know, it's the mecca for for a lot of things, especially I still consider the NBA as well. And I think certain guests will be able to get there in a lot of other surprise and stuff will have for the show. So I think it'd be major, but I, I know you have to be kind of sad because you're not going to have to drive up to bristle anymore. You're not gonna come up here. You know what it is. It is a very, very sad day because I mean, what's not to love about Bristol, Connecticut. I mean. ESPN down the block that there's a McDonald's and and and and and a ruby Tuesdays and stuff like that. I've really, it's really sad that I'm not going to be able to be there because I'm going to be in new you most times and on occasion, I'll find myself with John and feed and Dominic in LA. I mean my God, it's such a tough tough situation, but I think I'll say, I can't wait and obviously can't wait at four t with you guys. Now that'll be on your home city, but saving, I'll tell team soon. I hope you are actually relaxing for some reason. I don't believe you, but please do that because you know, once you're back, you're back. Just know this when I'm back copy ready, then I'll tell, sorry my condolences to Mexico element in advance must've taken. It's about to be out. All right, Steven, Al. Talk to you soon. All righty. Thank you. Congratulations, Shane. Okay. So we have a first day moving to the Big Apple catch us every day at ten eastern starting on September. Third. Sports right now. I'm at Collins, new Denver Nuggets. Point guard. Isaiah Thomas is sitting down with our MBA insider h. g. now ski, I t who signed a one year two million dollars contract with the nuggets. Last week opened up to watch telling him this free agency was flat out disappointing, the twenty nine year old who continues to fight the perceptions of his help. One onto say, quote, people know that I've earned deserve the Bax contract, and that's the only reason why I didn't get paid what I deserved because I got injured. I get that. The biggest thing for me was to get to the best opportunity for me this summer and show that I'm healthy. You can read. We'll just four article on Thomas right now on ESPN dot com. Staying in the NBA with Kawai heading to Toronto on the broad in Los Angeles. We're looking ahead to who are the best and worst team heading into the season where than forty ESPN reporters, insiders and editors came out with a new set of power rankings. You'd think with James in Los Angeles Lakers at least at the. Five think again, no surprise. The warriors are on top, but three of the top five teams are from the Eastern Conference, the Lakers checking nine, but that's only the six best among Western Conference teams. Let's get back to. I takes Tony. Thank you the Lakers outing. Another piece to help LeBron next season's dining, Michael Beasley to a one year deal. As you just heard the Lakers are number nine in our latest NBA tower, rankings Mazel serve with you. Do think the Lakers or more likely to surprise us as upcoming season or disappoint, you know, I'm a huge Lakers fan. I think they are more likely to disappoint what fortunately with you to say that look. I mean, there are some really interesting piece. I liked the addition of Michael Beasley. They need shooters, but there are some really challenging personalities on this roster land Stevenson and Ray John Rondo and javale McGee. And now Michael Beasley, the expectations are so high for this team. And I think ultimately we're talking about a team that's going to be the six to seven seed. I think in the Western Conference I would never count LeBron. But LeBron James, I don't think has ever been on a team that has finished six or seven in its conference. I think it's going to be a very, very tough challenge for Luke. Walton debt may be the toughest job in the NBA right now, balancing those personalities, balancing those egos and keeping LeBron James happy. Can I respond to Mr. happy over here? Does he need to get in there and say, as I like to say, my real job is at the as the Lakers radio play by play guy. This is going to be great. It's going to be a fascinating lab experiment. Number one, we got LeBron look at the roster LeBron had last year in Cleveland compared to this roster this wrestlers just as good, maybe better. I can't wait to see how these pieces come to. And keep in mind. The Lakers young guys are all getting ready to make a jump. Brandon Ingram doubled his statistical numbers. Last year, Josh Hart was just the MVP of summer league Lonzo ball's coming off of a minor knee surgery, but I expect him to get better this year and Kyle Kuzma was the steal of the draft. I can't wait to see what this Lakers team looks like with will run as the leader. The games are going to be ridiculously exciting, and most of all, we're not going to be losing anymore. I've suffered through five straight losing seasons. The end of that is here, and I think that the Lakers are going to surprise a lot of people in the opposite of Mason. Dominique. I think the Lakers are, if you look at that roster, there's some real possibilities. I think I agree with you in part because I don't think the expectations are very high expectations are pretty low for this team right now. All the reporting about other opinions about this team is that they're the. Main team there. They're a bunch of guys who are wildcards and is no way that you can put together. And it seems like every other week, the Lakers are coming out trying to defend their roster construction and try and explain to us what they're thinking. I think what they're trying to put together as a smart team of bunch of guys who have veteran experience that are adaptable on defense can pass pretty well not as many shoot as you would like to see. But they have a couple of shooters. I think they have a decent team and they have a guy by the name of LeBron James. I don't know if you guys watch the playoffs last year, watch any basketball. James is pretty damn good, and he makes your team a contender immediately. So I think that's -tations are low. So I think they will surprise and then you look at the Western Conference. I think we talk about how heavy how stack the Western Conference is often. I think that's a bit oversold, but to be honest, you look at some of these teams that you think LeBron's going to be worse than Utah. LeBron's going to be worse than Portland LeBron's going to be worse than Denver. Like I know they're good teams, young teams that are getting better, but he's LeBron James and he has a young good coach. Luke Walton wa think is flexible and smart enough to make this team good. I think expectations are low so they will surprise Molly. Where are you on this? They're going to surprise disappoint. What do we think? What do I think people are expecting? Tell me that for fifty wins is what the expectation is an wouldn't you agree make the Ryan that just came out, said that they were ninth in the Powell ratings, right? The ratings ESPN pirating said they're nice night than they're not yet pulling up pulling up the radio. That'd be about right because there's three Eastern Conference teams, so that would put them four, five, six in the state. I think the expectations are Western Conference finals and.
