"Do that. I think McDermott is also a possible two year buyout guy? Which doesn't really happen that often, but you could see them where they buy him out for maybe, I don't know, 13 of the 20 25, 27 that he's got left. Somebody signs up for four for the rest of the year, the next year he's a free agent, and he makes money back. So who knows? The house of Josh Richardson, who I think said buy out guy. Hurdles the big one. He's only at 9.4. And as somebody that Denver actually needs in November, Denver has a trade exception of 9 7 from the Monte Morris trade that he actually fits in, which is amazing for them. So they could just get pearl, they took Peyton Watson to 30th pick. Maybe they throw him in. I like Zeke naji. I don't know if I would trade him, but if that's a deal breaker to get Proto, I would do it. Long as we're not trading Christian Brown, I don't really. I'm in too. I like that dude. He's scrappy. On him too. I think he bought the bandwagon. So we're just in the back seat. I was actually texting with him about this shit. And what I liked was he was taking pride in garden John morant. Yeah. Not to say that he did some amazing job, but he understood that this is my number one priority. It's trying to stay in front of this dude. It's crazy, but a lot of dudes don't understand this. You know, it's a really important job. It's not glamorous. You know, your buddies are not gonna text you after the game. Like they would if you dropped 15 points because you splash 5 threes, but him taking that role and taking that seriously as young as he is, yeah, just don't give her the Christian Brown, please. I think perda ends up on Denver. Orlando is 13 and 23. So that's our bottom 5 right now. Detroit 9 and 28 Charlotte then in 26, Houston ten and 24. San Antonio 11 and 23. Those are the worst for. Orlando's in a weird spot because they're actually like talented. And they can throw some haymakers from time to time and they have two awesome forwards that I love watching. And then this bowl both thing happened out of nowhere. And they might just be good being the 5th worst team and actually like winning some games. They don't really have a self sabotage trade. Terrence Ross, I think probably had more stuff two years ago for they don't need to self sabotage because while they are talented, they're very young and they're going to do plenty of losing without the help. Like to me those 5 teams Orlando San Antonio Houston Charlotte Detroit, they can stand pat instinct to join up. Orlando I'd be a little or I'd be a little worried about Orlando because I do think because we're about to do Washington. Washington could just say fuck it. And all of a sudden be really bad and lose 20 of their next 25. And that's what they have to worry about. I think, as somebody out batting them, let's talk about Washington. They're 15 and 21. They got a little momentum. House, who you know? No boy. He's talking about, well, now that writes back we're 5 and one. Missing piece. They have bill for 15 for two 51. I'm sorry for 5 for two 51. Porzingis, I'm not sure anyone wants him. They got will Barton is expiring 14.4. Kuzma is the big one. I think Kuzma has real value. It's definitely like a juicy first. It might even be a juicy first and then one other pick that belongs to like Milwaukee or somebody who's good. And it's like, we got two firsts. It's like, yeah, you got one and a half. There's a Miami trade, that same trade we mentioned from Baghdad. Kuzma Taj Gibson for Duncan Robinson jovic in 23 first. I don't even know if that's quite enough. But that's a fun trade for both teams. I would like an yovich. There's a beel and Kuzma for Westbrook none. Some firsts. I don't know who that makes sense for. You could get some three team action if you want to get Phoenix involved with Jay Crowder. The thing with Kuzma is a fridge and at the end of the year and he's not going to resign there. And I think you have to trade him,

"Yeah, I think if the Lakers had LeBron KD and Kyrie, I mean, their defensive issues are still their defensive issues. In my opinion and would probably be exacerbated because they don't have Anthony Davis anymore. But I'm just like, let's not overthink this. We can have LeBron and Kevin Durant on the same team. What are we doing? Let's just yeah. You do our options. A hundred times out of a hundred. Yeah. It'd be a cool thought. It'd be a fantastic thought if it could happen. I just, I don't see any way that it would. Let's close with this email from Scarlett, who writes high pod and crew. As a longtime fan of the pod and the Timberwolves, let me start with a few questions. Why is everyone sleeping on the Timberwolves? Did nobody watch them last year or the past few years when cat played like a modern four with Jared Vanderbilt Taj Gibson gorge, or Kevin Garnett out there? Did nobody watch the jazz last year or the past few years where Rudy played with a lot of traffic cones? Did nobody watch the finals? Were Robert Williams and draymond green didn't have to be guarded at the three point line yet. Both affected the game enough to play major minutes. 5 out basketball is all fine and good, but it didn't make the finals last year. One of the most common lineups that jazz had over recent seasons was the following. Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell Joe ingles, boyan bogdanovic, Rudy Gobert. Place that against with the wolves we'll be doing barring a delo trade. D'angelo Russell, Anthony Edwards, Jada McDaniels, Carl Anthony towns, Rudy Gobert. The wolves will have upgraded every position in the starting lineup over what is the best 5 man group that jazz have ever put around Gobert. What other team in the west can seriously even dream to have three all stars before Katie gets his wish to be on the suns? Best regards scarlet. Thank you, Scarlett. Great email. Very good email. We talked a little bit about this in our last show, Rohan and I did. I like the wolves. I like their team, I think that positive and bullish about cat and Rudy together in the front court. I think that they'll be very good. The criticism first of all, I should say just to address one thing like, I think it's valid to wonder if that at the four defensively is going to be a nightmare or not. Yes, he has played at the four. It is career. And if you look at the data, Minnesota's defense when he's at the forest has been atrocious. Every single season. So yes, we have seen that. We do remember understood who was around Rudy and all that. Again, I'm high on this. I would not be shocked if they are the third best record in the Western Conference next season. I want to see what happens in the playoffs. I think they'll be good. I don't think they're a championship contender necessarily.

"I mean, my answer, because Kyle Kuzma had a better year than Julius Randle last year. Kyle Kuzma, I think he's a much more competent defender. But are you really going to bet on that to continue, I guess? Like if you can find concern situation for Julius Randle that makes sense for Julius Randle. Next to Bradley Beal, next to Kristoff's. Is Julius Randle just not a better player than Kyle Kuzma. I think Randall next to Chris staps is, you know, ironically, I think Randall next to Chris steps is a really good fit for him. You know, part of the reason why I mentioned the shot selection and the fit. And I mentioned the offense. Part of it is that he plays next to a rim diving center for almost all of his minutes. The next don't plan next to a 5, and they don't have the closest thing. The Knicks have to a stretch 5 is when Taj Gibson goes to the corner. And he took like 13 corner threes this year. And that's the closest thing the Knicks have to stretch 5. I mean, Mitchell Robinson might be the single most paint dwelling player in the NBA. And when I say paint dwelling, I don't mean the percentage of a shots that come from the paint, which is 100, by the way. I mean like the percentage of time. And that's not an exaggeration. I'm not being like, oh, it's ironically a hundred. No, he literally takes a 100% of his shots in the paint. And he took like three shots outside of the restricted area last year, and they were still in the paint. But I don't even mean that. I mean time spent in the paint. He just doesn't really stray from it because they put such an emphasis on him being an offensive rebounder as well because he's an excellent offensive rebounder. And he just hangs there. So he'll like it's almost like he plays offense the same way that like Brooke Lopez plays defense where he just like 20 knots the paint on offense and Julius Randle has never driving lane and this affects RJ Barrett too so the Knicks offense is schematically flawed, no question and play next to like a guy like Chris stabs..

"And so he's obviously he was disappointed because he just he told me when Brad got the president job that everybody, including himself, was like, oh, well, I'm probably going to get my shot now 'cause Brad loves me and we have a great relationship. But Brad didn't give him that because the team didn't. I kept I was hearing that they were probably going to do this. And maybe jabari Parker might account it, but I kept waiting for them to get that end of the bench vet guy. A lot of these teams, it doesn't happen as much anymore. And IT made that point. You don't see it as much anymore, even with the two ways which have to go to younger guys, basically. But I thought the Celtics would get that Donna's haslam, 35 year old, who's been the lead forever. It's funny, IT mentioned Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose, how every word tips goes always gets Taj Gibson. He brings Derek rose now with him everywhere. But like Taj Gibson is that guy Taj Gibson sits at the precipice at the very edge of the rotation, but he's that guy. He's tips this guy. And he was hoping that he could be Brad's guy. It didn't happen. And even 19 said it probably was never going to happen. And it was funny. I remember seeing a comment, I did read one comment, someone called myself a puff piece and all that kind of stuff. And the thing is that I don't think I conveyed in there anywhere that there should be an expectation that IT should get a shot with the team. I basically, what I communicated in the part that I was writing was that the Celtics didn't really do that. You don't have some type and IT thought that he could be that guy. And the thing is, I don't think the Celtics were in the position to have a roster spot that was going to someone that they didn't plan to play at all. At least earlier on, we're trying to figure out everybody one through 13 on the roster could they play. And ironically now, the only play 8 guys at games. So that doesn't happen anymore. So maybe now there's honestly now is the time where there is the room for IT on the roster just as a veteran leader, but there are locker room doesn't even need anything at this point. So you don't really want to bring in that personality anymore. And IT even said, I'm going to be me at this point and thankfully the hornets are wants me to be allowed vocal presence in the locker room. So the Celtics don't really need to as much as they probably love them. They don't need to mess up what they've got going. So they got going is working really well. Really well..
"taj gibson" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"So look, it seemed to me that their whole plan, Chris was get respectable and try to replicate what the nets and clippers did, right? The nets became respectable enough and overachieved with a cast of, you know, fairly ordinary players, not all stars to the point where it attracted Durant and Kyrie Irving and the clippers did the same thing to get Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to want to come there. And the Knicks could do the same. It seemed like that's what they were trying to do. But I don't know that they had enough sustainability and what they had and there was also the dream that was floated out there. And I think the next floated by the way, that they were going to put themselves in position so that when Daimler eventually demanded out he'd want to be a Nick. There was a lot of that talk out there. I would make the argument now and I would have made it three months ago too. The Knicks don't have the assets to get Damien Lillard. And so here they are. I think they're kind of hemmed in. Mitchell Robinson is kind of flatlined. RJ barret has upside but disappointing right now. There are other young guys are probably going to be good but not great. Again, this so it goes back to long term plan. If you were trying for a slow build, then I'll stop reaming in a second here and let you go. But like if you were trying for the long term build, you would not have hired tips, you would have not gone for a win at all cost season win now, get Derrick Rose, get Taj Gibson, you know, short term guys, by the way. Again, you asked about a 5 year plan. Those are guys are not part of a three to 5 year plan. They're older. So you could have had another bad year last year and gotten a high pick and maybe you have Evan mobley, or maybe you have Jalen green, or maybe you have cade Cunningham or maybe you have somebody else. They would have been better off still going to slow version. The Knicks never do patience. And I think to the extent that this feels like the old Nick's still Chris and why I don't rule out some move for a Russell Westbrook or something is because the owner is still the owner and he wants to win now. He always wants to win now. And I think though we do not know Leon rose's plan because we have not heard it, it does feel to me like more moves than not under his watch, including the hiring of tibs are about trying to win now and not about a patient slow build or building around youth or using the draft lottery. It's more about getting guys who will just prop you up in the short term and that's fine. And last season had its value, but it was it was not built to be sustained. You know, I was on air in Boston when the Celtics signed Joe Johnson to that contract that everyone was kind of getting nostalgic. It's like it's been 20 years since Joe Johnson played for the Celtics, but I kind of cringed because that 2001 draft was largely a disaster for the Celtics. They drafted Joe Johnson at number ten, very good player, obviously. But traded him away in his first season. At number 11, the Celtics drafted kyrik brown over the likes of Richard Jefferson, Troy Murphy, players like that Jason Collins was in the teens there..

"That's kind of the identity here which is you know New York Knicks basketball right? Yeah I think they got harder to play against offensively because they're actually going to be able to be creative and space the floor and shoot now. Going out and getting avan fournier going out and getting. Resigning Derrick Rose and going out and resigning Alec Burks. These guys make that harder to play against. And hopefully they even Kemba like Kemba hasn't looked like Kemba in a while but he's still a very solid high volume three point shooter and at the price they got him. If that's even like 70% of Kemba that's that's awesome. Yeah totally. So they got harder to play against offensively which is the thing that they desperately needed. And they still have a lot of the same pieces that made them very difficult to play against defensively. Like RJ Barrett was a really good defender last year. I know this was you know the the analytics say he was not a great defender. He was really good. Last year on the defensive end I thought. You know obviously getting 48 minutes of really high level rim protection from Nolan's Noel and Mitch Robinson for a large portion of the season. That was huge for the Knicks. They were really good. Julius Randle is big for a four man and can move his feet and can do some different stuff. Taj Gibson was really effective defensively. Like they have guys that are good defensively they did lose Reggie Bullock and if it was me I would have kept Reggie Bullock over Alec Burks at the price tags that they each signed for. But you know what? Yeah that's kind of parsing a little bit I think. And you know on top of that they go out and they get Quentin Grimes and miles McBride and Jericho Sims all three of whom I think are genuine plus defenders and project as genuine plus defenders in the NBA. So yeah I like this off season from the Knicks. I think they did about as well as you would think. Yeah you had Sims like at the near the top of your pick and roll defense bigs right? I did the subject category rankings yeah. Yeah potential G league blocks leader Westchester Nick's defense is going to be unbelievable with if McBride and Sims spend time down there. Yeah they are. And you would think that they're going to given the fact that New Orleans Noel and Michelle are they getting money? And miles McBride and yeah they're just not getting minutes. It's going to be tough..
"taj gibson" Discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"I am this would be an enormous deal for the Knicks in my opinion. The number 19, the Knicks are I think probably going to lose Nerlens Noel in free agency just cuz it's really hard for them to retain him unless they really want to dive deep into their office space. Deep but I think it's going to cost real amount of money to retain him in their cap. Space Mitchell Robinson is already on the scene. Miss Robinson is really effective as a rim protector. This would be kind of the perfect complement next to Mitchell Robinson or you know Off the Bench with Mitchell Robinson early in his career as an elite-level pick-and-roll Defender Huang Versatile who can do a lot of different schemes provide, a lot of different coverage looks to opposing offenses. He needs to shoot it like the offense has to get better, but I think Aruba is currently the best defensive player in this draft right now. If we're speaking today, and I would take him at number nineteen. I would love to have taken him earlier than this, but it's like imagine how you do much, Tom Thibodeau loves Taj Gibson, like, oh yeah. This is this is that. Yeah. But with more upside defensively than Tha Jazz and and just younger and I know he spend the Real Madrid system forever but you still kind of scratching the surface of what he could be as an offensive place. I don't think it's close. Then the defense is is wild and a good sense and just a crazy amount of energy and motor that also coached him to do really values and the franchises start to Value since he's gotten over. But I guess my, my question to you is when you watched the the fever game, just real quick. Sure, did you take anything out of there? With said this guy should go up 10 spots. I know score a couple of buckets, early birth And you spot me switch to guard to rant cards and postcards, and wings some guards. Did that do anything for you? Or you were kind of already set on what he was, as a prospect and just more reinforced than I opened anything off. Definitely more reinforced, if only because it was still on an international Court, where the court is still a bit, more condensed than if it was like an NBA court size or spacing out for like twenty six feet and he really has to guard out on an island. Like he did a really good job..
"taj gibson" Discussed on Big Fellas Basketball
"Is on offense and i was a fan during the time those years that the road was hurt and joking. No was the best player on the team. The question was okay. We know we're gonna hold a team you know. We know. You're gonna hold this team to eighty-five five points or whatever. How are you going to get eight. Five points yeah. Are you gonna outscore them. And that's the exact to here. It's just a julius. Randle is probably the most forceful player on the court and he doesn't play like he would rather stay back. Jump shots back fadeaways than just getting into the paint getting found. I don't understand it. But that's how he's chosen to play Rose has been the only player offensively on the knicks that shown up. And that's what that says to me. Is that one. Time coach of the year to derives had more consideration for sixth man of the year and three. This is a very this is a team. That's the situation of the clippers. Two years ago where they had a very very good pieces they just need scores around them to take to the next level agree and honestly like you look and we've been talking about role players this whole time. That's another big thing is not even just julius. Randle not stepping up i mean. Rj barrett is shooting twenty seven percent less than forty percent from the field. Alec burks. Who's supposed to be three point marksmen. Shooting thirty percent from three same with reggie bullock issuing twenty nine percent. These are guys who are supposed to be going out there spacing floor for us scoring the ball. I mean even looking emmanuel quickly. It's his first playoff so you don't want to be too tough on him. It's a very different situation. But thirty percent from field. Twenty two percent from three for guys come off the bench and be. Your spark plug is is not very good in the one player. Surprisingly well offensively is the guy who all season was getting trashed on outside their grows in an ob top but ob op is playing really well this series for compared to how you played in the regular season. It's kind of it's it's it's insane. You know the way to this team has kinda going mitchell. Robinson still hasn't played and he tweeted out that he put on his instagram story. I just wanna hoop. He's injured though he is but he's injured easy as he's been injured all season long. It's nerlens. Noel is not going to get the job. Done a will defensively offensively. It's it's the same thing it's like. I feel like i can. I can make a genuine argument. That i taj gibson has been the third best player on the on the knicks. This display series and. I like taj gibson. That don d. wade years ago was amazing. He's had so many incredible moments but he's not. He's not the do that. You should be looking at in pointing out and being like you. You're the third so that has a lot to me. Taj gibson was never that guy. You use the six. Sixth dan though you know looking at atlanta like trae young doing your job but the rest of the team isn't doing anything crazy. Click defensively as doing. Clint capello things but john collins struggling offense. Yeah he's not really getting shots of even though he's shooting well not playing very well..

"Them more than it is anything else. I think it's circumstances. Also i think trae young as a pain in the ass and you know he is going to be and you knew he was going to do some of these passes. He's making he's he's he's 'less when he's taking a ball to the hoop and nobody can stop them and when they do stop them and they keep them away from the hoop for some reason. He has six cents that very few players have where he could just find guys wide open. I mean he made a pass the capella in the lane. The other day that was unbelievable he was falling out of bounds and throw a bounce. Pass back to. Capella had great Position on taj gibson and it was like wow that is like a significant like iq play. That's a that's a kid that is just so into the game. Now i it's really it's disheartening. Honestly it really is. And i'm up. I was send zoo. And i'm glad zoo had a great time i consent enough. Pecs back to me. And mike post the entire week but it's great. It was fell. And i appreciate everything. He is not the malloy. he's not the mush. He loves the knicks. And you know he wanted to be there to see something special and unfortunately didn't turn out that well for way for him or for for any of us but certainly not his fault. No it's not of course we joke about that. People joke about that but it's not his fault. We understand the craig's yankee fan. The yankees are in the bumper because he's rooting for them that that that's my piano. That's definitely a thing. So i got a sunday to fifteen zoo texted me. This was the only time he texted me the whole weekend. I mean i was on twitter responding to his stop. This is the only personal texts. I got from him. Sunday to fifteen pm. We got the boot from the owners lounge because they had my nick shirt on. Is that disrespectful to boomer. Is what he writes. No it's not he goes. I didn't say anything wrong. The owner just told us she didn't want knicks fans there and was serious. I didn't realize i should wear non knicks stuff. I said no no. It's not disrespectful. You didn't know it's funny. And he goes bro legit. This is what he writes me bro. Legit walk in grant hill comes up and says what's up. The one of the owners comes over and tells us she's uncomfortable where they're all within two minutes of being there goes. I just hope. I didn't offend anybody. Not offend me at all and you know it's not surprising that would have happened then probably was set up to happen come on servic. Just absolutely berbie. He got he got treated royally down there. Oh of course he did. But i just love the idea of him walking into this like a luma naughty basketball meeting of owners grain hill and everything else zoo walks in with his tyson chandler jersey with no shirt underneath it and then he gets the boot they made it back alive. Though that's that is that is good. There was a line on that. that's for sure. So what do you expect tonight. Because right now i mean the way that these last two games have gone. I don't want to say they're completely lost the faith but i mean it just feels to me. I'm just going to be waiting tonight till they're down thirteen fourteen again..

"Don't wanna be limping and limping care if they do or not. Because they're not my team. But i'm just saying for our team the knicks. I know you don't want to be physically begin and we certainly don't wanna win on a losing streak but you know what the mentality is been with the knicks and the fan base the entire year or most of the year is. When is it going to end is going to turn around. But this is where julius randle has got to make sure that it doesn't end and to me. I like they've done enough for me to not feel that way any longer. Like i know that they're a really good team. I trust them and they might end up at a conference funds. I trust them. I don't want. I hated to see some of the reaction after that denver loss was like all air. It is now you see great team real. Mvp kennedy long. How much did the knicks have to show ya.

He was going to have his hands full tonight and another big strong center presents with the andre. Aiden yeah so this is. It's really as great as neurons. Well as ben and as good a story as he has been and as good a story as taj gibson has been i mean. They're playing against some of the best young bright big men in the league and that is a problem for the nixon has been a problem for the next so tonight they're shooting has got to be better than it wasn't denver. They'll be sea level so then maybe that will have something to do with it and it would. It'd be nice to see you know bounceback performance from them especially. This is where julius randle like the.

Gamache additioning back. And just trust in my routine and my game and Like i said. I wouldn't be doing this if my teammates to play without play with of which he gave a lot of credit to Coach tibbs for allowing him to play his game.

"Front of our eyes cross court. Tabarik tries a three from the corner. Threes j barrett and regain right in bents. So this is not me looking at this through knicks. Colored glasses right. You're also seeing this that this guy is he's actually a legitimate player. I'm glad that jerry gray. I never understood the take that he was a bust so quick when he was nineteen years old. It wasn't about him. It was about these other guys. It was about the knicks and how they missed on a lot of draft picks and then when he wasn't great out of the box. And then you'll say john moran zion williamson who were a just took on a life of its own. And it wasn't his fault. I just think when we're draft and kids nineteen twenty years old to give them a year or two some guys that takes a few years and this kid hasn't taken that law. How how long does it take enjoys randall. Point it's taken him a while to with five or six five or six years you still only twenty six. And he's finally arrived where he understands what the nba game is. His game is reflected that and he's been a great example for rj and he's been great example for quickly. And all those guys the same thing to be said for new orleans noel. How long he's been around and taj gibson. How long he's been around look they're not. They're not winning a championship. But you know what they deserve all the credit in the world for giving us what i think is about as unexpected season as we could as we have had around here from one of these teams. They're taking steps. that's for sure. They one nine ninety seven over the hornets last night. The winning streak is now seven and they. Trawl lanta by a half game. More on that in a moment first. Here's tom sibito. In terms of dealing with success team has to stay grounded. They are thirty two and twenty seven. We'd have to make sure that we don't get lost and we stayed focused on. What's in front of us. Here's reggie block on. Msg afterwards he had sixteen points. He says we have a good. Mindset is focus.
"taj gibson" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Well, the Lakers do fall to the New York Knicks rough rough game. Not an easy one to watch certainly not nearly as fun as the last one the victory over the Brooklyn Nets. This one was a grind and it was just filled with turnovers missed opportunities and a lot of pissed-off shots as well for the Lakers, but we're still here for you struggling if you're frustrated with that one. You're in the right place. We're going to break it all down. We'll get through it together joining me tonight is Chris the Masterpiece Masters the NWA National Champion. How you doing, Chris? I'm not as good as I was the last show, but I think I'm speaking for everybody. When I say that that was a difficult game to watch it certain point. We're going to get into it. All right now, but you're right. This is the place to be. I mean, it's even this is even a better place to be after a Laker loss than a win cuz a lot of times we need to kind of van song, you know, just kind of talked about what happened. Although that last post game show was a lot of fun. So I'm still I'm still trying to mentally go back there, you know. Yeah, I don't I certainly enjoy the shows or what we're celebrating an amazing win. Like we saw against the Nets and the last one more than one like this but we will get through it. And remember if you go back to the roots of this show. We spent almost every single night when the the Lakers still had Brandon Ingram and lungs. Oh ball talking people off the ledge and in convincing everybody that it was going to be okay and and all that kind of stuff. That was how this show really started. So we'll kind of get back to that a little bit tonight. I have a feeling and phone number. This was not a good game in some of the same ways that the last one was a good game. And this one the Lakers struggled with their shooting struggled with their turnovers and really struggled on the boards. And this is the first time when the Lakers Biggs and I'm talking about both Montrezl Harrell and Andre Drummond really had a rough night both on the boards and with and with the turnover problems. It was it was shocking and this was just a Knicks thing the next to a good job collapsing their defense. They are the 4th ranked defense in the NBA right now. So that part of that is just the Knicks are a good defensive team. But I also thought the Lakers my goodness they put on a passage clinic tonight in how not to throw a post-entry pass. They threw the ball everywhere but where it needed to go in that was sure frustrating. Yeah, and you know the Knicks they are they are incredible defensive team actually and you know, it's kind of it's it's nice to see Julius Randle playing so well off the same time. You don't like to see him. Obviously, you know, this was the Julius Randle Revenge game. We had kind of made reference to that in a really kind of turned into that. But yeah, as far as the big man Montrezl Harrell Draymond Green were effectively almost neutered and I I mean, I texted one point Rez looked like he was getting abused by Taj Gibson, you know, and you know, they were they just thought I'd like to you know, one point in me if the games to Lance was doing commentary. I don't know if you got that version, but I wouldn't like to see if the Lakers went really small to counteract the what they were doing on the interior, but then right after school and said that actually Frank Vogel decided to bring Casal and so for mantra so they went the the other route blood no matter what we looking at the page..

Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach.

"This Super Bowl was certainly a matchup of a couple of marquee quarterbacks. As for the rest of the league, we could see more off season movement. Things, for example, have been rocky in Philly for the latest there, ESPN insider Adam Schefter. There's no doubt it's getting closer. And the expectation around the league is that Carson Wentz will be traded. The question is, when does it happen? Who did they send them to? And what did the Eagles get in return? But there's been enough interest so far. To make everybody think that Carson Wentz is going to get traded here in the coming days and weeks. We just don't know exactly when the Eagles will feel like they've got enough compensation to make the trade. The Eagles have told teams that they're comfortable bringing back wins. But people I've spoken to don't believe that that will be the case they believe once will be sent packing. And the question is what they get back. The Eagles are looking for a package. It is similar to the one thing Detroit Lions got from the Rams and return for Matthew Stafford again. A lot of people wondering who's going to give that up? The Bears have had some level of interest. The Colts have had some level of interest. There have been other teams that have called in expressing some level of interest. And so Philadelphia's not rushing to make a move. But everybody believes that eventually the time is going to come that they are going to make a move with Carson Wentz. Of course, are Sal Paolantonio has his finger on the pulse of things in Philly.
