A Meditation on Luke 10:21-24 for Tuesday of the 1st Week of Advent

"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Luke, chapter ten versus 21 through 24. Filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, Jesus said. I bless you father, lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my father, and no one knows who the sun is, except the father, and who the father is except the son, and those to whom the sun chooses to reveal him. Turning to his disciples, he spoke to them in private. Happy the eyes that see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it, to hear what you hear, and never heard it. What word made this passage come alive for you. What did you sense the lord saying to you?

How Fossil Fuels Can Help Address Climate Change With Alex Epstein

"I mean, one of the varying genius points you make, which I really like is, you know, there are people who defend fossil fuels and they do it by minimizing or just poo pooing the notion of climate change. What you say in the book is look, I'm not denying climate change, but I am making the point that fossil fuels can help us to deal with climate change. In other words, you know, it's not necessarily the idea of like, let's try to blot out the sun, not prevent the sun's rays from getting to the earth. There's actually a more sensible way to deal with climate change. how fossil fuels paradoxically can help address climate change. It's even I'm glad you brought that up. It's even stronger than that because if we start with reality, which is how you began this whole interview, the reality is that human beings are far safer from climate than we've ever been. And this seems insane if you look at the news, but it seems obvious if you look in practice. Like would you rather live in the winter a hundred years ago or now? Would you rather live in the summer, a hundred years ago or now? Would you rather live through a storm a hundred years ago or now? And what you get is that wait, there's our climate conditions. That's one thing. And then there's our ability to master those conditions. And what matters the most is our ability to master it. And we can quantify this. We have climate related disaster death statistics that tell us how many people are dying of extreme heat, extreme cold storms, floods, wildfires, et cetera. And those deaths, this is shocking to people and it was shocking to me when I learned it. But those deaths are down 98% in the last hundred years,

Packed Black Friday sports schedule

"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

God's Pity for All People (Jonah 4:11)

God's Pity for All People (Jonah 4:11)

"Jonah chapter four verse 11, and should I not pity nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than a 120,000 persons who do not know their right hand from their left and also much cattle. On a picture, I want to kind of hone in on one word in Jonah chapter four verse 11. God says, should not I pity nineveh on a picture of the pity of God and the contrast between God's pity God's compassion, God's love, God's care for nineveh and Jonah's pity for himself when you read Jonah chapter four and you see this plant that raises up to help Jonah be comfortable from the sun and then God takes it away and Jonah is writhing in self pity and it just causes me to look at my life and ask the question do I live am I in what ways am I prone to self pity and instead of living in light of the pity of God? And what ways am I prone to focus on myself and to complain about this or that in my life and a lack of comfort specifically in this way or that way? Instead of focusing on what rouses pity in the heart of God in the world around me, not that God doesn't care about the details of my life or your life. That's part of the beauty. He does pity us and in the same time he has pity for people who don't know him who need his grace and his mercy and we and it changes the way we live when we take our eyes off ourselves and we live with that kind of pity compassion, love for others, isn't this the second greatest commandment to love others as what as ourselves God we praise you for your pity for your pity upon us for the way you have saved us from our sins for the way you've provided for us in our lives. We praise you for your kindness, gentleness, mercy, compassion, love, and pity toward us all glory be to your name for your pity for us and for all people. So God help us to see as you see and to live accordingly to live and light of your pity, your compassion, your love for all people around us today got to help us to see people in need with compassion as you have done and do every day with us.

"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Luke, chapter 21 versus 20 through 28. Jesus said to his disciples, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, you must realize that she will soon be laid desolate. Than those in Judea must escape to the mountains. Those inside the city must leave it, and those in country districts must not take refuge in it. For this is the time of vengeance when all that scripture says must be fulfilled. Alas, for those with child, or with babies at the breast, when those days come. For great misery will descend on the land and the wrath on his people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every pagan country and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the pagans until the age of pagans is completely over. There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars on earth nations and agony, bewildered by the clamor of the ocean and its waves. Men dying of fear as they await what menaces the world. For the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand direct, hold your head sigh because your liberation is near at hand. What word made this passage come alive for you?

Charlie Learned THIS Lesson From His Midterm Messaging

"Larry says Charlie, this is all your fault. You told people to go vote on election day. I blame you, shame on you. Okay, look, you got to defend yourself. Okay? I'm not trying to belabor a point here, but you got to be very precise if you're going to attack us on this. Okay? I said, I was going to vote on election day, but repeatedly we did warn on this program, and it's a learning lesson that I should have done even more and should have been more insistent that there's going to be a traffic jam on election day and we should entertain in person early voting. This is one of many clips. This is one where I did a Salem radio network event. In the valley in Phoenix, Arizona, and Scottsdale I'm sorry, trying to warn about what was coming on election day, play cut 44. But there's something I'm very worried about that all of you need to get serious about and you guys believe a difference. How many of you plan to vote on election day, raise your hands? Yeah, this is going to be a problem. Maricopa County can not facilitate all of you. I'll tell you right now. They are creating a traffic jam. And it's going to deter conservative turnout. So we got to fix it. I'm telling you right now, we are going to see three, four, 5, 6 hour waiting lines, a miracle of the county, and may solve a good year in sun city. And unless you're ready to waste 6 hours to go vote, then we got in there this time. So how do we figure it out? I'm not a fan of mail in voting at all, but in person early voting should not be discounted unless you want to wait three or four hours in line. I think we are going to see a traffic jam designed by Stephen richer designed previously by farm tests that criminal that used to be in there. And there we are. And so just, I wish I would have been more, I wish I would have repeated that even more.

He told anyone who thinks they qualify to contact binance labs, he welcome other industry players with cash who want to co invest. Justin sun said that Tron, who will be global employing X will support the initiative and more details coming soon, the tweet is up if you guys want to go ahead and read that. But CZ is talking about to reduce future cascading events because let's face it this is part of the crypto contagion and FTX collapsing doesn't just impact cut well. I guess it impacts these people or customers. There's a lot of people that had funds there doing business, et cetera. So I guess that this is the silver lining of this absolute tragedy.

This is going to be, he loves playing the game of keeping people guessing. He loves playing the game of what's he up to. He wants to get inside your head.

"At Gmail dot com. Chris, there's no place I feel like we can start, but Phoenix. Where the sun's lost, one 23 to 90 on their home court last night, Luka Dončić, this is probably the stat of the season. Luka Dončić had 27 points at halftime of this game. The entire sun's roster had 27 points at halftime of this game, is this like the worst loss you've ever seen. If it's not, I'd have to think about what was. I mean, it was so bad, the best way to describe it. I really like analogies. If you read my stories, my book, you get tired of them because it's like all I think about over the course of the day is how to come up with an analogy. This was like, I've realized when games start to break into 30, 40, 50 point range in terms of margins, I'm more intrigued by that sometimes than like a close game. Because it's like, I can't turn away. It's a bad accident. It's like rubber necking. You can't turn away from it. And so as they just kept expanding the lead into the 40s, and they hit 80 before the sun's hit 40, you're like, what is happening? And yeah, as you mentioned, Luca having 27 at half just like the suns did, there was a point where I think he got his 30th before the suns had 30 points as well. And the third. So it was bad. I saw a stat last night that Luca outscored, just last night's game, he outscored, obviously Booker. It was outscoring the whole damn team for a while. He out rebounded ayton, he out assisted Chris Paul and he had more steels. And actually, I don't even know if that was last night. I think maybe I'm sorry, this is for the series. He outscored Booker out rebounded ayton out assisted Chris Paul and had more steals than Mikhail bridges. For the series. Really hard to win a series that way, despite that, I was a fool and said that I thought that the sun would somehow find a way to get game 7 because, you know, the home team had won all 6 games of the series..

"Everybody knows what's going on here. And this is all you can do. So optically, you would want the former, but I think realistically everyone knows that the latter is where everything is right now, right? I mean, we've already got a anonymous people within the organization saying there's only one month left. You have to imagine the players feel the same way too. As a fan, you hate to see that. You want to go down swinging, right? Even though we know you're probably not going to win anything this year, at least, have some pride and look like you're trying. So yeah, I mean, I don't know, I'm pretty agnostic about this team right now, just because if they don't care, why should I? You know, what you're saying is true and that sentiment I'm sure is shared by many Lakers fans. But it's sad, isn't it? It's so sad. I was super excited about this season, even though I know there was a lot of mixed feelings coming into it. I was still excited. But I think a lot of people, this has been the hardest, if not one of the hardest seasons to watch as a fan. So I'm right there with you. If you're having a hard time watching the Lakers, just know that I am too. We all certainly are. Why we won with a super chat said, I'm just going to outright ask, do we make it out of the plan? And if we do, how many games do we win if healthy? This is a disgrace. Okay, so the play in right now, if everything finishes as is, the Lakers would get the pelicans in the first round of the plan, then they would get the loser of the clippers and the wolves in the second round. If you survive that, you get the suns in round one. So how do you see that? How do you see that going? I think they will beat the pelicans for sure. I am going to go out on a limb and say, if they manage to get the wolves, I think they can secure a playoff spot. Because I think that team is still maybe another year of seasoning away from being like a real threat. So if that's how the bracket breaks out, I feel pretty good about my odds there..

You've got a Lakers team that is not, but that's not to say the Lakers are going to win this one, regardless, based on the way the Lakers have played, I wouldn't have had them as the favorite going into this game, even if both teams were completely healthy. I think that's fairly honest assessment there. So the Lakers losing isn't so much the surprise. I think the surprise was how good LeBron looked and how much they still struggled in this one. Yeah, for sure. I was telling you, I think, before we hopped on here, it was like, yeah, I was LeBron. Trouble Aretha was really good, but I mean, you look at the stats, I was like, okay, Ross had an okay game throughout that first half or so in the discipline all downhill is seen from there. But yeah, Isaiah Thomas can buy a bucket the entire game. Deandre Jordan was bad the entire game. And Wayne Ellington, when he can't buy a shot, it's brutal. Bail is really LeBron and then Trevor Reid. The Lakers. The Lakers on the 39% from the field, 20% from three to go along with 14 turnovers. Now, they only had three turnovers. And halftime..

"Live up to the legends. That came before him. Whatever path you take the greatness gatorade is there to help you feel it because greatness starts with g good. What's going on everybody. Welcome into i take. Thank you for hanging with us. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Stephen smith max kellerman. Molly rose gentlemen. We ready to do this every day. All right let's go the bucks one game away from hosting larry o'brien trophy. But let's talk about some of the highlights fellas. Max held boat the drew holiday steel and then the alleyoop unreal right great play by drew holiday and he credited team. Defense stephen as right about that. I love the fact that they went for it. They went for the wind. Fortune favors the bones going forward. They'll trying to score good for them. But stephen smith thing that blew my mind. Was the chris paul foul. That was such a blunder. That's an all time if the sun's go on to lose this series. Oh my god like. I'm kinda rooting for them to in game six because they can't go out like that steven he's if you're gonna foul which is a stupid thing to do because you can't stop them at that point you gotta make sure that he doesn't scores and by the way he's up in the air. It's dangerous foul but if you just go foul it's a one possession game with fifteen seconds left. You have the ball but you could get the overtime pretty easily in that situation by foulland. You are begging for it to be a to possession. Games with fifteen seconds left for all and purposes. That's the end of the game. It was boneheaded on so many levels and to occur in that situation in that moment that leverage was unreal to me. I really hope chris. Paul has a great game six his legacy needs. We'll upbringing that. He does well but it is important that that play was and i certainly don't Don't try to diminish from that max kellerman. The bottom line is one of the big. Three are playing They they played like a big three on saturday. Middleton at twenty nine in his mid range game is just pure. that's the name that's the word that comes to my mind. Just pure silky smooth. Mari hardwood from power. Was texting me during the game. Talking about how you know just middleton's mid range game special to behold debt that that that definitely integer my jrue holly having twenty seven points and thirteen assists supplant spectacular basketball or both ends of the floor. He deserves a lot of credit when the big three do something like that they are three. They definitely are not a fake big three. Make no mistake about it. And that's what we saw saturday night. Certainly to play. Why chris paul and the turnover Prior to that by devon booker's amazing that the way that he play dropping forty points playing away that he's been playing trying to offset what milwaukee's thrown at them that it came down to those two book turning the ball over and then c. p. three committing that foolish foul because he certainly didn't need to do that. Because if you got the breakaway dunk alleyoop. And it was just that they still would have been within three and had potential to tie it but to me were really really stays stands out in my mind. I came into this game. Thinking about cameron johnson and how they needed to get him plan time and they need him to get him the ball. The guy played twenty one minutes. Took three shots may to i lost. Count max and how many times he was open and now the three nor devon booker got him the basketball now offset to some degree by booker because booker would look them off and then go and do his own thing and most of the time he made the basket so it was offset by that but cameron. Johnson definitely deserved more shots. Then he got and also thought that was pivotal to outcome. Stephen a. in the moment of truth. Though you're right booker was gonna play hero ball. The milwaukee bucks knew it and they stripped them because drew holiday is a heads up. Type player you're right about that. You gotta you gotta spread it around and we saw resiliency on the road. Sixteen point comeback. Guys let's keep going so game six is tomorrow. Milwaukee can close it out on their home floor in claimed their first nba championship since seventy one. When kareem abdul jabbar was leading the charge. Stephen a smith is this series. Already over believe it is. I believe it is. I have to be consistent with what i said prior to game five on saturday friday when we warned the air. I said milwaukee's now losing game. Six of utah phoenix suns. You need to win game five so you can ultimately force a game seven. They did not do that and a result. I think that the milwaukee bucks. Close this out tuesday night. And they end up winning the champion their first championship since the seventies yana senator cuco. I just can't say enough about the guy still doesn't have a perimeter shot obviously still struggles with his three grows but the hard work the dedication the focus. That's nasty the fact that he galvanizes guys around them and bring them together He lifts up lifts dummy doesn't tamp down he does things that stars is supposed to do And considered the fact that this guy signed What will walkie and stay. Da got two hundred and forty five million in the process for them to acquired you. Holiday and chris middleton although they were assisted because a guy like kyrie irving kids hurt because career renowned gotten hurt. I do believe that brooklyn will be in the finals instead of phoenix. No question about that but in the end it doesn't take away from what we've seen the milwaukee bucks to chris middleton game again it's been raised game as pure and not only that he closes jrue holiday. We always know him. As an elite defender but to have twenty seven points thirteen assists in pivotal five on a row speaks volumes for him and what he brings to the table. The milwaukee bucks are bigger. They are stronger. They are more athletic. They are deeper a really. It's the heroics of devon booker along with contributions. whether it's ep. Three mckell bridges or somebody in and out. You know that that's kept this series interesting but the better team is ahead. Right now Just simply because they're bigger stronger more athletic deeper etc. I'm not saying that there's no way in hell. That phoenix can't overcome this. But it looks quite daunting to say the least. And if i got a bet my money. I'm betting it on milwaukee close in this series out tomorrow night at defy advisor center advisor forum. I think it's over. I don't think it is over Possible the bucks. Close them out. But it's quite possible to sons win at milwaukee. Look why do i say that. I just saw in the last two games. One of your walkie one in phoenix. I saw the game come down to the final play. I saw it comes right down to the wire. I'm supposed to believe because we talk about things like momentum in the press the fans and the press do even the players and the coaches do that. Somehow that means that the suns can't win. Momentum is one phoenix play away from not existing right now either games four or game five the reason the bucks are beating the suns at this moment is because when it mattered. Most they got great play from their best players. The sons have not. Maybe that maybe you're right steven a. And that means that in fact the bucks better because with the money on the line jonas comes through middleton comes through in this series drew holiday has now come through big time with his defense and then and then the the alley part of the you right i get to. I believe chris. Paul and devon booker or incapable of that kind of play. No i don't either. One of those guys can take over a game. I've seen it in these playoffs in these playoffs. They've done a roic things. They now need to do that. Someone has to do it. Even if it is passing to open cam johnson. What you got to make great plays at the end of these games. That's.

"And also. We're going to run through game. Five beds people who time for some jump ball game five edition. All prop bet lions. Courtesy of caesar's william hill. Let's start guys with jaanus perk over under forty six and a half total points and rebounds. I'm going with the onto. Here's why i think the phoenix suns gonna stay with their same thing that they did in game four and as dobie on limo block. Get the ball his hands and they're going to walnut transition. I'm gonna go with the under again. Because i think i think they're going to win this game so i i'm gonna go with under and just say that he was going to be great but it won't be forty-six he's not going to thirty and sixteen. Well they didn't mention the assists in that profit point rebounds. It's no i'm state. That's my point they don't mention this and that's the number that i expect to actually be a little higher gieco account views on his in front of you. How much do we have to teach about gambling campbell. Chris paul over under two and a half turnovers richard. I'm gonna say over. I still think he's gonna play. He's not going to have the same type of game that you had before. But but i'm gonna say it's going to go over two and a half. I'm going with the one thing we know about. Chris paused it. He's a magician when it comes to handle in iraq and making pass these. Somebody's turnover was not chris paul. He's just he's not going to have three turnovers in our game you're gonna go with the under Okay control over. Winning certainly is two point. Five dollars point. Richard holiday perk. I'm just gonna stick with you because clearly under eighteen and a half points for drew with the under you know why. Because i feel like you. Holiday has embraced his role of just gordon. Cpi three and i feel like the books could win. Longest chris middleton than is do their thing. jrue holiday. don't have to school over eighteen points in order for the buffs to get a win. And i'm gonna go with the under again. The the ones that. I'm calling under base off a who i think is going to win the game and i think if drew holiday goes for over eighteen and a half and i think that the the bucks a very good chance to win this game but i don't think tonight's they're going to be interesting. So let's move over to devon booker than if that's how you feel over under twenty and a half points richard. I'm going with over. Devon booker is going to keep doing what he does. And that is just bucket to debt mandate even have three three pointer and his do seventeen twenty eight. There's just two point to point. This is bucket people to that. He's one of the most prolific scores in the game and although they have. Pj tuck on them. Pj took struggle with guys that move without the basketball coming off a pin dials and things to that nature. Especially that spa oblong with the over. I didn't even know that was a death by bucket of death by bucket. Now just hearing that phrase. It's take a bucket out. You finally perk who. You have to win game five sons or favored by four at home. So since you're an extra level elite level better. I'm going to ask you taking the points into account. That was the bet. What would you take with. The phoenix suns fashion than for going to win by more than four points. They might win by ten for the simple fact they have home court advantage and not only do the role plays these young guys thrive from the energy of the fan base but cpi three jae crowder. They also perform well in this arena. Day have established a coaching here in his heart to get a win they won both of their games. Game one to game to buy large margin. i'm take. I'm taking the signs minus four..

"Shifting to in the copy i'm supposed to say they're shifting to dear district but i can't it's to the deer district so you can. You can do anything anything. I don't wanna insult the deer district. I just feel like there needs to be the in front of it. I don't know. Milwaukee lost one home game this postseason so clearly the district dear district want to say it. It is in effect and by the way that one loss at home it took a forty eight point game from trae young in order for that to happen. They are under five hundred team in the road in these playoffs. A richard you were talking before about splits rate so this bucks team home versus road. These splits are pretty remarkable. It's remarkable and mainly because it's not just the role players it's your to other all stars outside of janas when you look at. Chris middleton scored twenty four points a game at home on forty seven percent shooting on the road at twenty two on forty percent. Then then when you look at holidays. Nineteen forty five percent away. He's fifteen points a game on thirty seven percent. Shooting point being is that there is a severe drop off not a role players but on your your multi. All-star and chris middleton and then on the on the other all star drew holiday that you brought in. You can't have that type of drop off from your second best player especially when it's expected to have a drop off from your bench and the next group of role players. This is what the last night game was so important for the books to win because the books have in played against the team. The phoenix suns. Right this team is consistent.

"And that is indeed the correct it. The suns are halfway to a championship. Or maybe we should say they are point five of the way to a place where all those half seconds are adding up to possibly a very shiny trophy so guys. The story of game too was the sun's dominating from the perimeter with all of that point. Five passing while janas in the bucks had their way inside richard. What was working so well for the suns in game two as you saw them taking advantage of that quick thinking honestly the bucks the way they played defense. That's great defense at the bucks played on that possession that you were showing their scrambling around. There's everyone's touching the ball everyone. Scrambling running guys off the line with the phoenix. Suns are just so good and when you shoot twenty for forty from difficult. But i also wanna point out something that is like the second most in nba history behind twenty four from a former cavs team. That was on. But there's a commonality there. shut up. i'm sorry you know what. I was told that i'm not nice enough to us. I apologize so just it for a second. There's a commonality. Both teams are both where it gets. A coach bud led team and so it was like twenty three twenty. Three's against coach but twenty four threes against coach. But these are the little things that talking about end. Game adjustments running guys off the line but the bucks are trying their best. They just look a step slow. Well i mean they have more than enough help right. It's just how you going to utilize right and it comes on coach good and not get it right. People saying chris middleton jrue holiday has to play better than they do right but they also have to be put in position to play better. And i say that because when you go back and look at the eastern conference finals game five in game six. Chris middleton jrue holiday with the ball in their hands. Those guys will phenomena without. John is on the floor. So the milwaukee books have to find a way to get their big three going at the same time offensively. They're not doing it. Even when this was dominating in the third quarter would end up happening is a bunch of guys just standing around watching right so you have to find a way to get jrue holiday. Go get chris militant going get them easier looks what not just plan off being spot shooting guys in being able to have the ball in their hands to have some type of riddle not per per one hundred percent right the latin to add crisp speak audit. Where's chris add. Where's nice.

"He said all the right things after the fact but he's still was taken out of a national championship game. Because one of the best coaches ever said. I can't win with this guy. I gotta change it up. So he did. He is what he is a guy that you certainly would love to have as a teammate. No doubt about it. I want him in the fox hole with me because of his toughness and everything about it but when it comes to who do. I want as my quarterback i want the guy that had me at eleven in to the guy that had me. That was an mvp candidate because really around talent. And i know that when he's done having these issues that was a personnel problem. That was guys around in that. He's like i can't trust it. I'm not about to get my clock cleaned right now. Because he got hit a lot. You that offensive. Line getting old and breaking down. He didn't trust anything happening in front of him. He's in indianapolis is a fresh start and a coach who believes in them. It allows him to go back to be in that guy in two thousand seventeen that we saw. I think it's important to note fellous and listen. We all know the game of football. And i understand absolutely what you guys are saying man but when i look at this situation i'm not looking at it from from comparing everybody around. The league. dallas went through the same exact thing they would do the same thing and obviously people around you and the team around. You is going to impact a lot of that performance. I remember watching jalen hurts it at first game against the saints saying they got some he could play in this league. Obviously you've gotta surround them with talent like any other quarterback dak prescott was drafted in the fourth round. They never planned on him. Seeing the feel it tony romo back went out and all of the talk about dak prescott was he was wrong. He was ready. He didn't have all you needed to have the be a starter in this lee. And i'm not saying that gives the greatest thing since sliced bread but we all in agreeance. I believe that you can win with dak prescott if you him in the right situation and have the right guys around him i think that for jalen hurts carson which is going to have to prove to me that adversity can hit. He can answer the bail at fight through it. That's why right now. I'm taking jalen hurts because i've seen him fight through that already. So i do you see with the right pieces around. He certainly can win. I'd take that prescott either one of them. There's no question about. Because i believe that. Prescott a better quarterback both mentally and physically than both of those dues down. Well nobody say but in the end jalen hurts. Hasn't given me enough body of work. You talk about winning carson. Wentz showed us he can win. Lebanon to mvp of potential mvp of the leaving. You know all pro caliber player pro bowl. So he's giving us enough to say ourselves. I think we can win with him with everything around him. Jalen hurts his yet to do that. Because he's still young keyshawn to your earlier. Point to wentz might actually benefit from a change of scenery in indy. He will be reunited with his former offensive coordinator and former teammate. Yup yup frank reich and threw three touchdowns with him offensive coordinator in two thousand seventeen. All right thank you markets for the same place with both of these guys.

"Take away his job or anything because carson wentz was our starter all right. We're going to welcome back. Swab swag gu Okay carson wentz. He obviously did not react well to the drafting of jalen hurts. He posted his worst career. Numbers statistically be looking to turn it around in indy so keyshawn would you rather have whence or hurts of course no question about it. I think jalen hurts has a long way to go. And he probably will be a terrific quarterback in philadelphia whether in philadelphia indie where carson wentz is. I know the body of work. I understand what carson wentz has done in this league. Yes last year was not great. Fifteen what did he have yet. Sixteen touchdowns and fifteen interceptions. No i don't want that at all but if you look at the years before that the only problem that you have of course wants to staying healthy. Can't he stay healthy. Unfortunately out against the los angeles ramsey tours aco. They went on to win the super bowl. He came back. He had a terrific campaign in eighteen. Not a bad campaign in nineteen twenty twenty. Didn't go well. And i agree with doug peterson. You always looking to upgrade. The backup quarterback position jalen hurts. Was there. it didn't go well. You drafted him. So you said. I'll tell you what let's give him an opportunity because clearly carson winston hair was not on right things were he was seeing ghost. Whatever you wanna call it. It was problematic in philadelphia. Both on and the field. A change of scenery is is going to work for him. In indy with frank right clearly he missed that relationship with frank right now. He has the relationship again in indianapolis for the colts a team. That's prime to make a strong playoff run. If you think about the aging philip rivers. He was in a dogfight in buffalo last year in the playoffs. Philip rivers as old as he was in. You don't think if you can insert carson winston to the same lineup. No major changes for this football team with a coach that he loves. That understands him the same page that he can't get them past the buffalo bills or at least into a deep run into the playoffs. Because i believe so. I i would certainly think that carson wentz is going to change a lot of people's minds this year in indianapolis and i know a lot of people look at what went on in philadelphia and they say this guy's done. He's a problem in the locker room. He's he's a head case. We don't want to deal with a guy that thinks this way. Change of scenery goes a long way for a lot of players in professional sports. Mckee we will one for one man. I thought we was going to agree on this one too. I'm taking jalen hurts tomorrow and listen to your point of course winced more. Talented than jalen hurts. He has more tools and ability. When you think about playing a quarterback position but you know who else he does has more talent and twos as well dak prescott and we've had this conversation for years about who would you want carson wentz or dak prescott from physical trait from physical ability standpoint. I'm taking carson wins but the mental. Makeup of a quarterback key is paramount. Especially when you start talking about guys go have to go through some adversity. And the only reason i'm talking about taking jalen hurts over this one. Because i've seen her go through this process as alabama so. Maybe i'm a little bit a little bit too close to this but i know is mental makeup. I know that he can go through things. That are hoard. It go through trials then overcome like people have been telling this kid. He can't play quarterback for a long time. He was the first woman of the year. The university of alabama job was taken over by tour to ago was down. He has to come back in and perform at a high level. You think about what he did it. Philly philly was not a great team all of the things that were cast on carson wentz last year was not just carson wentz offense of land. They had trouble with the the. The conversations between the peterson carson wentz. There's a lot of things weapons on the outside when it comes to receive a lot of these transpired. The one thing i didn't see carson wentz do is get on get on television or in interviews and take responsibility for the things that were going on even if they weren't his fault and i believe that's a trait that a lot of quarterbacks need to have just came off of a conversation with air raja's eras hadn't had all of the great things that its disposal but he's made doing. I'm not comparing the football players of compared to mental makeup carson wentz head to go with a guy and obviously we all want to be around coaches we love and it systems that we think would be great for us but sometimes that's not the case in the nfl. You may have to go through one or two years. I did not like how he responded to adversity. I did not like how he responded to. Nick foles being being the guy that finish the super bowl run even though during the regular season carson wentz was magnificent. I had this conversation with dan. Orlovsky y'all know how much he loves carson used to now baker mayfield but now they do anything together. The bottom line is man. When i think about it when i think about jalen hurts versus carson wentz. I'm strictly going to the mental makeup of these guys. And i'm also going to the fact that i believe jalen hurts. Has that theme. That gets guys rally galvanize and follow behind him a little bit more than carson wentz does carson. Wentz has to go fit in in this. I believe gonna play well. That's already a playoff team. I believe he's one of the guys. If not the guy with the most pressure on him in the lead not to take away from what the colts have done. Already to your point with philip rivers but when we start having conversations about these two guys. I wanna do. That's going to be standing in the mud with me and i don't know that about carson wentz. I'm not saying he can't or he hasn't evolved to that. But i know jalen hurts my staying in the with me with. It's good or bad marcus. Just real quick devil's advocate when you talk about mental makeup here. You'd rather go with jalen hurts. He's played one season. How do you know who we on the phone even better. How do you know who he is in the face of adversity rose. I know jalen hurts is not to check out. And that's why preface by saying watching this do in college like that's the biggest sample size that we have. If you go back and look at quarterbacks and athletes in college there was none. That went through jalen. Her jalen hurts was poured during a national championship and to a came in. And then go. No i was gonna say. That's true. marcus he. He has the makeup the mental makeup based on his college resume. No question about it. But don't you give some credit to change of scenery. When things go so bad you can be a bad player. A bad person in a certain situation when you leave that situation all of a sudden it's different people treat you different. They talk different. You feel different. That's why i feel like in terms of which quarterback i'd rather have carson wentz. Because i think the changes scenery you're gonna get the twenty seventeen eighteen nineteen and if you know then he owned belonging to leave. Which is if. I could jump in here. Which to me is a guy that was once eleven to and an mvp candidate and a legit one before the acl. That's a guy. I can rally around. Meanwhile i'll say this government's on jalen hurts wasn't drafted to be a starter. They never expected them. To how long did it take. Doug peterson to finally commit to it. He didn't really want to because he knew what he had. Yeah he's a big alabama fan. So i watched his career. So you're right. He was taken out of a championship game and was a great teammate. Absolutely great team..

"I'm gone. Okay you make a great point about emotion right. And let's take this to the relationship element hon. If you were going through some which is significant other and y'all were having conversations but you were sleeping downstairs on the couch or she put you on the sofa. Eventually you'd think you make your way back to the bed right and things are going to be be fixed but when they leave the house and they don't show up night after night after night. What message should you take. That's what aaron rodgers is done. Aaron rodgers ain't showed up. Ota's he showed up the minicamp and guys like you keep talking about a super bowl run and he's not prepared for it so unless you give him the benefit of the doubt that he goes show up which would from a player's standpoint. I agree he could show up. And be as good as any other quarterback. But i remember two years ago. A lot of nfl pundits a lot of qb gurus getting on here saying aaron rodgers. Don't look like itself. It looks like the green bay. Packers made the right decision taking a corner bang and then he comes back and followed it up by. Mvp season so for me when you talk about emotion in spite and optimism i agree i live on those principles to until you show me actions. You not go not showing up at home making me wonder where you are and we continue this relationship so look for all of the guys out there all the ladies that continues to have this optimism. If you people ain't coming home at night and they keep telling you they don't want to come home at some point you need to take a clue as started looking for another another bowl or another lady or figure out how you do this by yourself. So i want you to read that allan hi. He's back just passed me. A mean it says creating relationship drama is all fun and games until the actually decides to move on and so when you think about all the drama. The green bay packers have created starting with jordan. Love to this point where we are. Now amanda checked out yes he would love to win the super bowl for the green bay packers. But guess what as i say before allen mar. Fay's not leaving. Brian going anywhere. They're still in the building. You know as covering the new york jets and being on the sideline in training camp and practices standing there. The general managers in the president's every single practice every single game in the locker room. And you mean to tell me than aaron rodgers wanna see face. they're not gonna all of a sudden just disappear they're gonna be they're evaluating players. Imagine that you gotta walk past. Aaron rodgers every single day vice versa. That that that's not what he wants. He wants to be gone somewhere. Like denver for instance where he has an opportunity to play against. Patrick mahomes who actually gonna be joining us live on the show here in a little bit nicely so when you think about those sorts of things is perfect for him again. I'll say it again. You know jordan love is these seen jordan love and practice. He wishes well for jordan. Look but he also knows that the green bay packers a have a long way to go to get to where he put them in the nfc championship game a year ago or two years ago. It's just what it is. I understand the wishful thinking. I'm thinking like report and start thinking like unhappily i will. I will leave it as this. You know i always care most about the cheese heads. The fans the ones that are affected and the only misses i would have stay together for the kids. Bad for the fans are torn up. But that's all i got is kids. Man is for the kids. I get it man there. You're supposed to have that train of thought but the bottom line is when you look at everything and totality. I'm right there. Low key man like you could play a game and you could be disgruntled like russell wilson. For instance. we heard some comments for russ and people start speculating whether he would be out. Trade partners came about a russ that was this bailed russ came up during the interview with p. Care said look. We love each other as fake as it was. He's he'll there. This is a different animal man. And look i would. I would think this is my thought right because air raja's has shown over the years to be a guy that's that's like he's he's introverted but he also will will will be a guy that's willing to open up and willing to talk about things he hasn't been afraid to say anything i think in this last year and a half or so. He's kind of been delicate with his words. Which i don't like that version air rogers. The air rogers out new previous to that would just come out and say it and say what what he wanted to say. What it is. But when i'm looking at all of this stuff oh and play out. This seems like a guy that it's way more than just football. That's number one and then number two. He knows everything that all of us have been saying. That green bay has a good rosty in green bay has players and maybe to figure out what they do. Aaron rodgers air raja's has been the guy to not show up to anything all right guys well in aaron rodgers defense. I will say this last year. He showed he's not running out of steam. He set career highs in touch. Steel total quarterback rating completion percentage last season. And i feel like oh plus the twenty twenty mvp. So he's looking at everybody like this. I know who i am. I'm here in rogers are let's take a break so go. You'll stay with us right. Hey hey molly. Karen rosiere in. You're listening to the first. Take podcast and i have a huge favor for you to ask.

In january carson wentz was also entering his fifth season for the eagles. He led the league in sacks and lost his starting job in week. Fourteen to jalen hurts whence was traded to indian march and as we stand today hurts imposition to take the reins of the starting job with new head. Coach nick serianni. Doug peterson recently addressed. The drafting of jalen hurts by saying. We continue to look for quarterbacks. And that's something that will never change. We won a super bowl with our backup quarterback and we've had to play with our backups. A couple of times in philadelphia.

"Paul a true leader. Somebody who knows what to do in crucial situations began this can grow into that role. He has to make his st rose. No question about it. You have to block out the noise on the world. No question about it but for them to be able to to win this championship or even better yet win game too. He has to step up to the plate. I think you'll be much better than he was in game one because the injury obviously having good medicine that he's taking all the different things that he's getting attention to on their knee certainly will come to for wishing in game two so he's the most important person to me because without him on the floor. This is a totally different team on the road. Most important player for the boxes. Not janas because you know what you're getting from him. The most important player for the bucks is a guy that they need to keep out on the floor but some people are saying he can't be out there. That's brook lopez what we saw to brook lopez to close out. The series against the hawks was defense and low post scoring which is great thing to have this late in the season. We know he can do both. But in pick and roll defence. He and bobby portis have been exploited in game one and now they've got to make that adjustment but if they take him off the floor you lose rebounding you lose rim protection and you lose offense something that the bucks cannot afford to lose. What they need is the brook lopez's with finished the series with the against the atlanta hawks. They need that guy. I need to figure out how to get him back playing that way while also keeping them on the floor protecting him defensively. You know what that means. Stop switching. it doesn't make sense in those situations. You can switch one-two-three maybe once before but you can't have brook lopez on an island. You cannot bobby. Portis on an island with chris paul licking his chops backing up. Let me set you up. Let me get this guy. Went to one too much ice. Oh so this is not going to be about. This is about offense. Yes because if you take off the floor it will hurt you but if you leave them on the floor. It can't hurt you defensively. That's not on brook. Lopez that is on the coaching. That is on the scheme. They've got to figure out a way to keep them on the floor because he can help you. He'll be important game. You gave me a whole lot of buts so out. You gave me a well. He's this and he can't switch on that and he can't. So why is he on the coaches. So why is he even on the floor because offense. Dj is a problem in a liability. You're telling me about office when janas healthy is giving you thirty. Walk in blind at the end. Jaanus is always a thirty piece. Walk all day long ordeal middle tennis and then middleton closes thing for you when you think about brook lopez being on the floor. And he's supposed to help you out on the defense side. Yes there's a liability. So why would. I have him on the floor when i know. I got a raining defensive player of the year on the floor. A guy who's loan. Who can make shots inside. Bully ball on the offense in. I'm going to get thirty. Plus from him when he's healthy and i believe that he'll be one hundred percent healthy based on what he did in game one in the way he looked in game one. Carry that over the game too. There's no way inhale out brook lopez out there full-time not even calls. Alison even coast really. So then you miss the end of the hawk where he was such an important player. Compromise and we'll hall way in different style than the phoenix. Taking really do exact same thing. You still need that. No by the way the andrea was dominating on the boards. And tell me tell me about him on the board. You mentioned that. And i didn't even get into the andre who had twenty boards. Okay so they wanna humane. Glass glancing ratings clean into politics her when he was on vacation. So i don't think i'll i'll have to catch them up on what happened in game on all right guys. I'm expecting a lot of attention and focus on chris. Paul coming into this game too so maybe we keep an eye on. What cameron payne can do in some spurs since i'm spurts on the port out there and we'll be. We'll be trying to figure out what's happening with brook lopez against the pick and roll of. What the bucks are doing as well. But what do you guys think who else could be. X-factor defensively what can they do to stop chris. Paul in the pick and roll. I feel like mike boone. Hosmer is actually an x factor. Because you know. I'll say that the adjustments at he's made in the playoffs weren't adjustments. He made its adjustments made by the other team which is injuries happened. Kyrie irving went out. They were getting smoked in the first two games of that series. He went out series change to their favor. Trae young. they couldn't stop him. He got hurt series changed to their favor. I don't wanna see anybody else get hurt. We've had enough. All stars get hurt in the playoffs so if nothing happens and it stays the same all right mike boone. Houser you've gotta fix whatever's going on with that defense. Make the adjustment. So i do. Think he's an ex factor. I would say jew holidays. Gotta figure out when they switch is at booker or is it chris. Paul you know both of them got the mid range elbow jumpers coming down so if you can get into facing him and arrest him and pressured into and i think that that is going to be x factor defensively for milwaukee outside of that. I mean they got three players at that right now or cooking. And that would be chris. Paul devon book and andrea aiden. You gotta pick your poison. You can't take all three out. Yeah a lot of the time on. Chris paul they went big right so you had. Pj tucker on them then when they switched you've got lopez being exposed ten portis at times. Do you think the option here is to go small and not switch perhaps and start with a jrue holiday. Who said. I've gotta be more aggressive. I've got to be more assertive against chris. Paul to start get over screens idea switching his nice during the regular season. 'cause you don't wear down your guys now. Everybody wants to fight over screens all the time. And that could wear you out but in a playoff series. Now it's basically all for everything right now for a championship. I don't know of switching. O five makes sense. And when you're chris paul and you're really smart you know okay. This is what they're doing. Great who who's bobby portis garden you. You're setting the screen because they're going to switch because that's what they're supposed to do this so robotic. It's so predictable. And now i've got bobby portis in a in a one on one. Everybody get out of the way. And i'm playing one on one against bob reporters who got love him. He can't guard guards. You can't especially like chris get into mid range. Get the shot he wants. They've got to get away from that concept. Don't be so stubborn and make sure it's the right thing and like juice saying that. That's him suggesting. I've got a fight over screens. I can't just surrender in screens and just go ahead. We're going to switch. No no we've got to keep them guessing on when i'm going to go over when i'm not it's only getting two. Let's not let's not get caught up in it get eighty nine percent of the time if you down to. Oh you go home without the trophy. But it's only game one. It's only game once. So we'll see if boone hosmer and the rest of the milwaukee bucks make the necessary adjustments and in defense of my fellow stanford grad brook lopez. I mean in the pick and roll when he was on chris paul. Those shots were contested. He was there chris. Paul hit tough shots. You know so whether it was whether it was dropped whether it was switch whether it was be more aggressive. Try to get the ball to chris. Paul hands chris. Paul was the one who was in control. So back to your point. I think it might be coached but then again of course roz agrees with me that brook lopez. There's one win. Hey hey. I'm molly karen rose.

"To the legends that came before him. Whatever path you take the greatness. Gatorade is there to help you feel it. Because greatness starts with g good morning and welcome to i take on roz gold on what i am here with keyshawn johnson. We have alan hahn here. What's up fellas. How you doing this morning. I know you finish four hours. Radio success steven will be mad us. But that's okay. No ronnie lott was coming on the show but it's good to have him only jersey. I'm gonna wear man. It's is a good one. Hey album putting in the work. All right i just got here so i'm trying to catch a. Let's get to it because who fans we have endured through a basketball list evening yesterday but tonight the nba finals are back for game to rejoice sons. Come off of a dominant win. In game one led by a third quarter explosion from chris paul in which he scored sixteen of his thirty two points and also finish the games with nine assists while the bucks l. It was a good sign to see yada onto the kupu poor in twenty points and seventeen rebounds after missing two games with the scary me hyperextension. We heard from both teams superstars heading into tonight's match up different. We have a real team team where you can't just key on one guy. Two guys everybody. On our teams capable of having a big game and everybody is comfortable and accept arose. Not so good you know is are there so good to help my team in any way possible but going to gain jill capital the future. Hopefully we can put us to win all right so keyshawn start raju. Winning a ring is more important to which players legacy would you say. It's chris ball or would you say that rings more important for younis's legacy is more important for if you wanna talk legacy chris. Paul and the reason is is because of the book. Everything we talk about with chris. Paul we've talked about. How much of a leader he is. Leadership abilities teams that. He's playing on getting in and out of the playoffs. Getting bouncing certain rounds all of that first ballot hall of famer and no question about it top five point guard of all times. Probably no question about that either. But you see what i just did. It's always going to be but plenty. Didn't win one but he didn't win. What it's so important so close right now. One one the situation you can point to a lot. You can point to youngest piazza's feel young. Janas has time a lot of time to go and win a championship. Chris paul in phoenix right now. The west is only going to get stronger next year. It's only gonna get better. Golden state klay thompson differ getting there guys back. Utah staying healthy to clip for staying healthy. You start to look it in the phoenix suns right. Then they're right there so why not cash in now in. That box is checked. There's no question about it. It is chris. paul. Chris paul will be in the hall of fame. Whatever happens in these finals. Have no bearing have no say on that. He'll be in springfield. it's already been established. It's already done winning the championship. Cherry on top ring. Maybe obviously that a lot of players love to have because it does give you that little bit of extra cachet that puts you in a different conversation. But he's still going to the hall of fame jaanus has one two. Mvp's and yet he goes through a free throw line on the road and he's mobbed. There are a lot of people that watch him and look at his game and think he's a guy that's really great at this game. What he's lacking one fundamental skill and that's one of the most important skills in the game. His shooting the basketball from anywhere outside of eight feet. He is a great player who needs something to establish himself as an all time. Great a championship leading team to one would certainly do it so for him. This is the opportunity. And why is it now. You say he's young. Sure he is but so is the rest of the east and so is and to me. The opportunity is now in this situation. The windows open and available to him. Because if they don't win there could be changes. There could be changes coach. There could be changes on the roster. But we already know they'll be changes in the east because brooklyn. Well they're not going anywhere philadelphia. They are there and they want to get better and then of course. There's the boston celtics. Who realized that finishing seventh is not good enough and they will be better so if there's an opportunity to win it's now and he's got to do it because this might be his only chance if he doesn't get a ring shirt to be nice. I don't think he's got that same kind of respect as most mvp's do. Here's what i saying against that. Though allen is one chris. Paul isn't getting any younger. We don't know if he's coming back to phoenix moving on in free agency. We have no idea whatsoever. The west is loaded in going to only get stronger the east. There's a handful of teams that you can talk about. And you just mentioned them the philadelphia seventy six boston. Obviously you know. Maybe the knicks atlanta in there you throw in and then the milwaukee bucks milwaukee's been at the top of the leaderboard pretty much every single year. That jaanus has been in the nba. When you think about it. He has time. Chris pau in the phoenix house. There is no time. That's the only thing and chris ball's career that you check the box. Of course he's going into the hall of fame. There's no question about hall of fame. But i can tell you this for sure going behind. The velvet wrote standing at the club trying to get in and everybody walking up that have rings and they tell chris were. You can't come in right now. why cannot come in. i'm a hall of famer. Well you don't have rain. Robert ory just walked past humint. You got five. Just that is the way players. The hall of fame is great. Players is professional sports. They want the championship. No matter what you ask anybody they will trade it there hall of fame credentials to get a ring in anybody that says that it's not true is a damn lie. I'm going to tell a damn lie then because that is not true because if you're in the hall of fame you're among the elite to ever play the game whether you have a ring or not and that's the why you play a game you don't give us again. Hall of fame hall of fame comes after. Yes if you get in the hall of fame great hope. You are a key component to winning a championship. You take that all day long if you were chris ball a championship. You get chris paul on this after he win a championship and ask him on this. Show our show and ask him. What would you rather have a damn nba championship ring or the hall of fame. Okay great but it's not over for him yet because he'll go to your lakers if he doesn't win with the sons this year allen real quick just to piggyback off keys point here like he's pointing out. That janas has time still in your opinion. Do you think if chris paul and the sons don't get it this season the championship. How likely is it to see him back in a finals again. Like do you think that as i mentioned. La is his home and lebron is a close friend and he's still trying to get that ring. There is great opportunity for a team that as we know your lakers could really use some point guard leadership. They were missing that along with of course health. What an addition he would be and do it. I why not. Let's not speculate because we still have game tonight. So let's focus on it gained food tonight. Who do you think is going to be the most important player in tonight's game between the bucks and the signs. It has to be honest even though he has a knee issue going on. When you think about twenty points on a bad knee on a bad will the milwaukee bucks don't have what the phoenix suns have in chris..

"Had them by seven. This game should have been decided by twenty but of course the suns lead up. They didn't let up by like midway through the third way to third some points at twenty point lead and they brought it down for like nine. Think the suns lead up. I really finally believe that our yelling at the tv tablet. or however. you're watching it. Even what we said in maybe one or both of the previous matchups with the bucks. We've been screaming at our respective devices. Mike budenholzer will you please move jaanus to the five marlins had a five coming. It was so clear. It was like clear as day monty williams says. Hey you know what before i say that member and a waterboy when the kicker was like you know i'm going to say not gonna listen i'm gonna say bish bish i s h ellen b. i. s. h. city i to lose my bish rights. Who's my bish os my bitch. There's my bitch. I felt like the sun's did that all night long. It's very unfortunate and rick lopez. Bobby portis mr. Connelly mr forbes. I'm not calling you bishops as men but you were the delegated of the night. They weren't going after janas they weren't going to have to p j tucker they weren't going after middleton they weren't going after drew holiday they were going after four bishops and a pod. I called him tucker a little bit too. They take it very rare. It was defending dan. That's what happened. It was so rare it was like we want we like ric flair. Said we want you. Oh after what happened to brook lopez all night. Nah fail. i'll good. I'm just gonna defend so over here in cut your can handle this. They were moving out of to the corner and is like you know what the heck right so janas actually had a much better night on the free throw line seven for twelve despite all the county. He started to make them when they were counting up the ten by the way i said i don't like how county maybe it helped him breathe a little bit again. The problem is when he's about to actually like pull up to shoot it. He hesitates when he hesitates. He's thinking about it and where he's there that's why he misses but what how. He had a flow through with the shah. Even three point shot the first one was horrible but the second one was so.

"Post podcast. I am your co host. Michael schwartz. I am sitting right outside of staple center the scene of the crime last night for the first time in twenty eight years. The phoenix suns advanced to the nba finals. And i've got with me. Hey zach lowe welcome aboard zach my schwartz. I give you the intro. Because you are the most die-hard phoenix suns fan. I know this is your day to. Phoenix suns are in the nba finals. They just clinched at the staple center. Chris paul played basically a perfect basketball game at career high in the playoffs. Forty-one points what what did you do after the game. What is did you sleep. What is life like for you. Yeah have i had an early call for jump today. So i didn't get a terribly a large amount of sleep. But you know what i think. You gotta wait to celebrate. Celebrate their still former winds to get zach. They've been here before twice before they have never won. The final step won the championship. So i'm jubilant it's just been such an incredibly fun season. I think these are the best kind of seasons where you think you think they're going to be good kind of like. Oh four or five at the suns. You have a hunch that they're going to be a lot better than most other people think but never did you think you'd be. They'd be this good. What is your exact title at espn. I'm a senior researcher senior researcher. So every time i go to los angeles for the jumper when i used to. I didn't see you last time. i don't think because you know. The pandemic is screwed. Everything up euro were always talking sons and they always have a losing record. And you're always so tell me what you think about eight and is he going to be this good. That you're always so optimistic. And i felt almost pity for you during the during the down years. So i am thrilled for you. And your suns fan brethren. What did you do anything. Did you go for a beer after the game did you call your family was that you wanted to make. Yeah i celebrated with my dad. Because we've been longtime suns fans i know. He cracked open a beer that he'd been waiting for for this day. Not exactly chuck with the fellas like a lot of our suns fan brethren have done. But i honestly i just had a smile on my face the whole night just especially through that whole fourth quarter where you really knew it was coming. I think for me was after that. Four point. play with chris paul where it's like. Oh my god. This is really happening right now. This is happening tonight. The sons are going to go to the finals. And honestly when you look at the injuries on the other side of the bracket the sons are going to be favorites in the finals which is just incredible. Set of circumstances even from the beginning of the playoffs. When everyone thought the lakers were going to beat them in round one in a seven to upset. I did yeah. I i think it was like fifteen seventeen of are maybe sixteen. Seventeen of our espn experts. Had that. i i would. The lakers have won. That series of anthony. Davis hadn't gotten hurt. I have no idea. Maybe but chris paul also got hurt and you can already see you you. You already tweeting about it. Last night in defensive you can already see the diminishment diminishment the diminishing of the sun's path to the finals with law. Murray's her will barton was hurt. Anthony davis was hurt. Now they get the clippers and collides hurt. But chris paul did was hurt and then didn't look like himself when he came back cam johnson. Who was i mean. I was talking to clippers. People between games five and six. They're like absolutely love with cam. Johnson as a player. He thought he's been tremendous the whole series. He misses last night's game and look. The injuries are way worse than they've been in most playoffs in terms of the caliber of players in the number of them. But you can only play the teams in front of you and look the sun's just rolled through the lakers. When anthony davis got her didn't squeak by the nuggets. They swept their ass right out of the playoff sons and four sons before. It's like if you if you ended the clippers series got tough but you know they won. Four two and yeah. They could've lost a couple of close games. But you know what could've would've should've they won them. The value worked so they've got four playoff losses and once those injuries hitting the lakers and then the nuggets were not whole they just obliterated those teams like it wasn't it wasn't like they eked by and you thought well if this guy was healthy clearly. That's a win. they just rolled. Yeah and i just absolutely hate this. Asterik talk i wanna put a complete end to it and if there's any team any fan base that you're going to try to throw it out. It can't be the sons. i mean you go back. Oh five joe. Johnson breaks his face. Oh six out for all but three games than raja bell hurts is i believe calf in the west finals. Oh seven of course we all know amari. Boris diaw leaving the bench. I still feel like the sons were the best team in six or seven and should have won that championship. So if you're gonna talk to any fan base. Definitely not the sun's about this a banners fly forever and i just feel like you can nitpick every season with the warriors of one in two thousand nineteen of kevin durant was completely healthy. Probably but we never know and he so i think you can't. You can't go back and do that. Diminishes the title and honestly in twenty years if the sun's do in the championship four more hard games. I certainly don't want to put anything ahead. But if they win this championship. I'm going to celebrate it like nobody was injured. It doesn't it doesn't matter it just doesn't we're going to talk about all the heartbreaks for a little bit. You and i did a podcast. When they went eight. Knowing the bubble last year we went through there there. I mean you couldn't even replicate how crazy their post. steve nash. path of team building is all the all zags all the trades at went bad all the pixel one right all. We'll talk a little bit about that but let's start at the beginning. How old were you in. Nineteen ninety-three. I was seven years old young. And you bet will scottsdale kid. Do you remember those finals. And that absolutely. I remember it clearly. That was my first by sports heartbreak. I wasn't really a sports fan until i'm sure you remember. Westfall guarantees series in the first round. Sons were the one seed. They fell down to oh back in the best of five era. Paul westphal said they're gonna go ahead win to in la and come back on sunday and win game five in everyone's going to say what a great series it was the whole city. Shut down for that game five. So i remember vividly watching that over time and i was hooked from their barkley. Had the big jumper in the semis over david robinson to win that series tough game seven against the sonics and the west finals and then of course michael jordan had one of his vintage performances in the ninety three finals. Capped by john. Paxson steak right through my heart with the game. Winning three and i still feel cage i may have been fouled on the last second. Play on the other end. So yeah i as you can see. I remember ninety-three quite well. So i was ten years older than you. I guess i was fifteen sixteen in nineteen ninety-three so i remember watching the games live and you know god knows how many basketball gets watch you. Forget the detail so during the last dance you know i sort of turn..

"Don't know i would say ninety. Your is one hundred seven while the phoenix suns scored fifty points first quarter and fifty cent points in the second quarter a. I think it was against denver. Nuggets be de gets up. The mind is just keep getting bulldoze massias. they're already bad alexa bliss team. If i'm not mistaken. Alex english big score. But yes so. That's a little bit of effort and speaking of the phoenix. We need they duster captor. A fussy did the best out of the has defeated. The jazz i think. What is our prime focus for the play. Also mattila still getting number. One seeded the best last after the north making the blast. Having not made the playoffs for a long now. I i forgot about the last time. The playoffs two thousand. I don't even know what they're nine. Probably the son samantha. Startup steve steve things so he restored alone at my main man. Langston galloway now. Occupies fussed bill west. I mean i hope. He's he's I'm just a little bit bill. Go talk about the you know. Phoenix suns david. Book off time is the playoffs. Cpt continues his legacy of uplifting the teams at least you know i think this must be the fuster that he is part of the no. No no i think the houston rockets is awesome and he was dead with harden. Not the almost beat the beatable. I i know you're you respond. Can you talk a little bit. Both how what kind of kindnesses and maybe even a little bit about his mvp conventions. Yeah i mean big fan of spoil He's you know be argued. This anyalysts put us broker. Bogus spallina was responsible. Westbrook i think this is just kind of an old school point. Guard something that. I prefer Floor gender who who makes everybody around him better all the time And it also actually very very good scorer very efficient scorer i think he has the highest number of field goals in the in the dwindling mid-range as well as normally highest number defeatable the highest number of attempts anfield percentage obviously So yeah i mean i. It's unfortunate that he hasn't won. And also i think You know hopefully hopefully they. They do well in the playoffs. And maybe could be a surprise winner. They could be. Because i'm looking for a look at it. You know the lakers haven't hired develop clippers are good but still is injured at this point And then you have the nuggets and the jazz and nuggets. Don't jump marie so they don't really have a scorer as so you only have you by jazz. That kind of has a a team that has played for a long time has been successful. has all the weapons against the phoenix suns And they just recently defeated the phoenix. So are the best. I feel very strongly for the phoenix. Having a good shot of commuter west and then in the east depending on who how east. I think how healthy the nets boy. That i think. That's like the tilling. From james. I believe is gonna on hasn't come back from that injury. I'm sure he'll he's just waiting he doesn't want to be. I think they sort of have the you know. Either they'll be. I don't think it makes it captured the fussy eater. No no they disqualified qualified but not captured of us. Still some ten games. I think than fifteen games left. Yeah i think so more or less so you know the aggressive was basically. You'll get steam. You know that they're The maximum that they can do is get to the playoffs without the memory. And unless adam gordon shows up which i mean i think i personally think that this is a sign sign. This is like a time. Where i'm going to be like the momma is gone. I'm gonna get more shots because his shorts that are up for grabs that embiid as the person who can take the shots of it for me. I think Given that day did bring him to be a big score. I think he should be able to do it. But i don't think the nuggets gonna go much for like they were going to last year. Thinks that's what i feel. Do you think there's a case for as most valuable player. I mean best. It's not maybe not the best of the best team but best team. And he's the only like notable edition last year. Steve visited not make the playoffs. Yeah yeah it took up. You know i think that If if you'll get steam was not doing this well And if you're not playing such level i think spargo's the second i think is what number do for me Or but embiid rankings. It's It's a you'll get embiid yannis and secrecy. But it's i think it's oxidant agassi. We should retire because is much more difficult to have been consistent than showing the only only knock on obviously that he doesn't score that many points and saw ethnically that makes him not the most valuable terms of points scored like he's not the top scoring team But then on. Top of allegation steve. Nash has to these from phoenix points per game. Yeah yeah so the Similar kind of tajik. Three very high. Were you know any if you look at who steve master set under discount Says that could do everything. And it's kind of similar to phoenix suns right now. So i i wouldn't be i wouldn't be mad Gets yup. I mean as much as i hate it because i want. I wouldn't be reminding. The nuggets side was bought number but Four but not by broadway huge martha by one almost on december three th. Yeah because you'll get because the nuggets had a very very bad start like almost like often not even number four and half a game behind the clippers. Yeah and six games. I'm of the lakers. Who would yeah the lakers that they've been losing. Yeah but i did not. Do you notice that your prediction of the hawk actually came out to be through. Somehow i know i tell you. Want okay in the beginning of the season. I said if not great they did harvard. Okay and then. I was like oh my god. This is what's happening i event on the hoop.

adam gordon Steve december three th six games fifteen games phoenix denver nine last year samantha fifty points ninety Bogus spallina steve one hundred phoenix suns two thousand first quarter Alex ten games
