"Plus 49 and 44 minutes. So without green, that new death lineup can absolutely give them some spread until you bring draymond back and really kill it. Like they've got multiple centers to play with those for you got amazing speed and Wiggins and pool, then you got the shooters and stuff in clay and then of course with draymond is a facilitator defender. They've got they've got 6 different guys, so two different groups that I think really can finish games very, very well. Draymond's and foul trouble or whatever kaban can fill that gap. So I've had Phoenix and walking all year, I used to have Milwaukee breeding the champions at some point this year, maybe three months ago. I said, yeah, I think so when it. But I do agree the biggest challenge if they're healthy is because we know what goes they can get. We saw it earlier this season for a long time. Forget about previous years. I think this is a perfect way for the warriors to get healthy and get some momentum in and around too. And the winner of this year's least interesting series award. Are there Milwaukee Bucks, the defending champs against the Chicago Bulls who were having a great season and then injuries just took it apart and those injuries have spanned from Lonzo Ball to Alex Caruso to pat Williams who just came back to Zach lavine dealing with some knee stuff toward the end of the season. They are now have a negative point differential for the season. The bucks are the bucks. We know who the bucks are. They barely have to travel for this series. They can take the train if they want, they can hop in an Uber, I don't know, they can just they can bike there if they really want to get adventurous. They got no answer for honest. I don't even know who they're going to try to use on him. I don't know that it matters. The bucks have drew holiday and Chris Middleton to put on Levine and Derozan and Giannis can do whatever the hell he wants. I don't really care. Is there any can you sell me sell me on this one? I mean, I'm going to watch it. Can you sell me out? Can you sell me on the bulls having any kind of chance here? No, definitely not. I'll say two things. One is this is why they drafted pet Williams from my son joined the team after pat had already left, but I pay attention to those guys. This is why, I mean, not to say when deserving anyway, but you better draft a gigantic monster forward like him when you've got Giannis 90 minutes away from you. And not even maybe in his prime fully. Like this guy still can get better and has this year. But he's not ready. I mean, even if he's not he's hopefully all year, he's not ready to stop Giannis. Giannis tries to he always tries to dunk on teams. I've never seen him try to dunk more than what he does against the bulls. He knows no one can mess with him. He just tries to duck everything and the only thing I'm interested in and this is nothing to do with who's going to win the game because it won't matter. But we know the bucks don't care if you shoot your threes. And they really don't care booth which is the reason. He shoots more the reason against them than 18 in the east. I want to see if he'll shoot ten and a half. He gets 5 a game, which is 5.5. Dude, just do ten and a half and let's see what they do. I'd like to see coach Donald in a long time friend of mine. Just say screw it. Derozan got a bunch of points against them, but they were blowout games. It didn't even matter. The only chance we have is to make them do something different and maybe they'll put Yanis on him to guard the three if he's hitting them. Maybe they'll get Lopez out there. He doesn't want to go out there. Let's just get 23s a game from our center's position and see if we can't muck things up a little bit, but I don't think that's likely to happen. That's about it. So I was searching for flights for August when you were talking about why this series is interesting. Whatever you said, I assume it involved Betty the bull and his popcorn orgies that he has in the crowd. I didn't catch any of it. No, I did catch some of it. I do think that's the only interesting angle here is this is the all threes defense, like Milwaukee's above the break threes. Unless you're a great shooter, have at it against a team that I think was last in 3.8. It doesn't even want above the break three. I guess that's kind of interesting. You mentioned vucevic, he just, you know, look, I'm wrong about a lot of things. We all are going to be wrong about a lot of things. I admit when I'm wrong and all the time, but I just remember when that voodoo trade happened, there was a rush of Orlando angst like that's all we got for Nikola vucevic, our franchise player and a rush of like here come the balls, great move by AK and the new front office, they're charging and obviously that move became a building block to other moves. But I remember feeling like not on an island but in the definite minority of I kind of like this trade for Orlando. I think Wendell Carter junior is pretty good. They got two lightly protected first round picks. One of them turned into Franz Wagner. They still have another one coming. A year later, vujovic shot 31% on threes. Now 54% on Tuesday's pretty good. 17 a game, 11 rebounds, still never gets to the foul line, defensively he's still man..

"He lovingly describes certain actions and the nuances and the angles and with Boston, he's right. I was watching Tatum and brown tape this morning. Yes, of course they're going to pick on Seth curry. He said, no, that's coming. He probably feels it like an ant with a magnifying glass. He knows it's coming. And it's going to come and it's going to be relentless, but it's also going to be textured. It's not just throwing the ball to jaylen Brown get out of the way. That's what that's how Brooklyn plays offense. It's going to be multiple screens and get game into screens and pin down seals against him. They're going to attack him from different levels at different levels at different times with different people. And I think Brooklyn defending that. And again, not just Seth curry, of course, but all of it with Tatum and brown cable of scoring 30 plus and any of those games. And on the other end, basically run a pick and roll, or refuse the screen, let Katie shoot a 26 footer over someone, that is mentally taxing too because they're not computer take plays off defensively. Katie likes to roam, Boston will punish him for that for sure. And yeah, Marcus smart, we know what he can do. I wonder, to me the most intriguing thing about guarding the nets would be, do you we call jump switching? Do you switch up into Durant and make him drive all the time? You would never do that against almost anyone else not name Steph Curry and no ever 7 footer would you do that in since Dirk. And Durant is good enough to go buy you, but that takes an energy too. And just keep making him attack. Don't let he wants to shoot over you. Get the shooting against air. He's back at home in the gym just shooting. So I like the idea of playing them sometimes. You just can't foul. That's the one scary thing, but jumping into his space is sometimes your foul. Try not to foul, make him keep driving, especially going left. If he pulls up, just can test or try to block it, make it tough on him that way. I think I watched his body language Zach when he does LeBron sometimes and when he sees a teammate do some silly or when a teammate says something stupid and press conference afterwards and Katie's got to say, all right guys, can we please not kick them and already get them fired up by saying they're not the same rub Williams. I looked he looked frustrated and sometimes he gets it on the court. We're like, hey, do I have to do this too? The truth is he can be Superman every game, but over time that takes a toll on defensive special and that's where I think the nets will lose a series. They just will guard good enough consistently enough. Yeah, and when Durant does have the ball, they're going to mix it up. Sometimes they won't switch they'll play traditional pick and roll defense. Sometimes they'll throw a hard trap at them. And when they do overload the floor toward those guys, I mean, Durant and Irving are maybe the two best guys in the whole world at playing in tight spaces and figuring it out. It's just very hard work. The Celtics are also an elite elite transition defense team in part because they're so big and switchable. They don't have to worry about who's supposed to guard who. Oh my God, I'm supposed to guard that guy. And the nets are a great fast breaking team and I think the Celtics can take some of that away. Just curious. If Simmons comes back, I'm just not sure that changes my outlook enough because I don't know, I wouldn't start him if I were Steve Nash. I would bring him off the bench. I don't know how many minutes he's going to give me. But I'm just curious, I'm assuming that four fifths of the net's best lineup currently without Joe Harris are Kyrie Irving, Seth curry, Kevin Durant, and Ben Simmons. And I'm asking you, coach, who's the 5th guy in that lineup because your choices are between small guards and great shooting small guards, some shakier shooters, maybe Kessler Edwards in between. Who do you pick in that 5th spot or a center? You could put a center like a Drummond in that spot. Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Maybe they would go center just because you need more rim protection. I think that I'm not talking to your question, but I think the Ben Simmons thing is, I think he's going to probably end up being a net negative. He is going to be able to guard Tatum or brown better than what you'd probably expect because that's the easiest proposition when you first come back when you're Ben Simmons. You're that kind of on ball defender. Where I think you'll have is trouble is all fall. Again, the Celtics don't play like the nets. The Celtics run stuff and I would think already the Celtics have a list. I'm a sheet of paper with all their actions to put Simmons in off ball away from the ball. Making me quick decisions rapidly. They've not done as a team all season with him. Target him, don't talk to him on the ball. Talking to him off the ball and then eat off that. And then where are you playing offensively? He's never played with these guys before. This is a hard damn game and it's the postseason and the Celtics without Robert Williams are still very good with them. They're monstrous. For Ben Simmons, I wrote this at come out later today. It's like not driving for a couple years and then pulling in a Manila or Rome and expecting to get around. Like you and I can figure it out, we drive every day. But if you don't, you're going to be a little bit gun shy in a sense. And I think Ben Simmons against this team with all those weapons is not going to be good off the ball defensively. And offensively, forget about it. Why would we think he's going to be great offensively? I don't know if he plays. I think to me they've talked there's so much smoke. I don't see any fire. I think they're probably better off that he doesn't play a month ago, play him, and he'd be fine, but I don't think you want to come in this series having not played at all expect to be good. Interesting. I think the answer to my own question is Bruce Brown. The other thing I'm looking at is nets became a sneaky good offensive rebounding team. And in Boston switches a lot, they risk having their small guys on Andre Drummond trying to box them out, but no team is better at getting that second switch behind the play and kicking Marcus smart out if they need to kick Marcus smart out or Peyton Pritchard out and putting a bigger guy onto Drummond. Now I'm going Celtics in 6. They close it out in Barclays in game 6 and they get their revenge on Kyrie. My fourth ranked one, which might have been higher, if not for the news that Luka Dončić is going to miss game one and him missing game one with the cap strain gives me the heebie jeebies as you get a missed game too. Is he going to miss game three? Is he going to be the same guy? Is the four 5 series in the west between the rising Dallas Mavericks and the reeling Utah Jazz who went 23 and 24 in their last 47 games. That's not very good. They still have the third best point differential in the NBA despite that and the number one offense and they appear to be the healthier team. Look, it sounds like a cop out, but my prediction is going to be was going to be Dallas in some amount of long amount of games with Luca without Luca. I'm leaning toward Utah. Let's just sort of for the sake of ease assume that he misses the first two games of the series. The game's one or two and then he comes back and he's like actual Luca. Like if he's hobbled Luca obviously that changes things, but it's just more fun to talk about this series as if these teams are at full strength for most of it. This looks like an all offense series..

"And if you don't think Abu is potentially happening, well, maybe you know more than me because I think there's potential there. If he is laying some eggs and then let's see if he's not thinking about his legacy then. That'll be what's interesting to me. If things don't go great in games one or two at some point. It actually raises an interesting dilemma where so they've been amazing with the two of them on the floor. Yeah. They've been horrible with one of them on the floor. Horrible. And now just against Toronto with just embiid, bad with just hard and bad. It raises an interesting dilemma like all the smart basketball people for years and years at the stagger them stagger stagger. I wonder if you should just play them together for like 36 minutes a game and just pray to God I can survive the other 12 with like a random maxi three and a random Tobias Harris three and freaking cork Myers and his beard hit a couple threes and then we just like limp to 6 minutes because Hardin and Deandre Jordan it's been a disaster. Doc is not gonna trust Paul Reed. You can say let's go niang at center and just shoot the hell out of it. You're gonna bleed points. I don't think I'm being extreme. They're not gonna play them every second together, but I do wonder if he's gonna air on like let's maximize their minutes together and just close our eyes and try to gut through the minutes that they sit. Let me ask a simpler question you mentioned in beads defense and him guarding siakam. He's gonna guard different players in this series. Let's just zoom way out. Who do you think Toronto starts in this series? What is their starting 5? Your options are your 5 best players, which is van vliet Barnes and anomie Trent siakam at center. Then you can bring trend off the bench and option B and start precious to chua at center. Or they've tried Kim birch, et cetera, which gives Joel a very easy place to guard. If you're Nick nurse, which option do you go with and which option do you think he goes with? I probably start small right away and again with the idea is it's a marathon and get into Joel making cover as make him always be accountable for space, meaning he's got to make a decision on my health. He is their rent protector. And so now every members stress is not just physical stress. It's also mental and emotional stress. You have to get Joel thinking about his coverages. What am I supposed to do? Make him a focus energy mental energy on the defensive side. Knowing you could you're going to play Kim and your precious and you're going to play Chris. You're going to play all of them at some point. You can mix up when you do it depending on who else in the game for Philly. But I like the idea if you're Toronto of making Joel at compete on both ends every second. He's on the court, hoping he gets tired and fourth quarters, and then in every series, every game going forward, a little bit earlier, a little bit earlier a little bit earlier. That's why it's also important that Toronto always stay connected, Zach, quick timeouts, every 8 or run timeout. 6 one run timeout if you need to because if you let them get ahead a little bit and he gets rest there, that just that impacts future games too. Oh, and cork, I'm glad you mentioned him. He's a sneaky X Factor because he's been shooting badly. He's a good shooter. It just hasn't gone great from this year, and I think they need him. He's an energetic guy, competitive guy. If you let Scotty Barnes is happy not to guard you. Let's face it. He wants to play center field. And so if you have a guy that isn't shooting well, Scotty is mucking things up. He's incredible. His feel is amazing and he's long and strong. And active and energetic if cork mods is stroking it and Scotty has no one else to kind of hide off of that takes away from Toronto's defense. I half expect Scottie Barnes and some of these games he's roving so much like, you know what, I'm hungry. That guy in the second row has some popcorn. Let me just see if I can sneak out there and Nick nurse won't even notice because this is just what I do. I would, I think I might start a chew up and give myself size speed, switchability on harden and sneakily, he shot 36 or 37% on threes this season, got more and more confident. He took one three as a rookie. Zero for one. And now he's like taking threes off the dribble, and that forces him bead to guard him and maybe he's gonna be in the corner and I've got to run around a little bit more. I think embiid will guard Scottie Barnes a lot in some lineups where Barnes is the worst shooter on the floor, including the one siakam at center. I'm really interested in that and I'm most interested in just the turnover battle because Toronto is a great ball protection team and they force a ton of turnovers. Philly takes care of the ball really well in offense. Philly's got to dominate free throws, dominate free throws because Toronto is an aggressive reaching team and obviously Philly gets the line all the time. And just the way they guard hearted and embiid two man game, I think they've telegraphed it in previous games. They are just not going to let hard and hit embiid with pocket passes. They're going to do everything to prevent that. And in fact, if you watch the most recent game, they had like a three or four minute stretch in the third quarter, I think, were they just let hard and go into the lane. Like the guy, the guy guarding embiid, who was Ken burch, just like hugged embiid and hardened his expecting help there. And they're like, oh no, you just go, like, we'll help off everybody else. We're just not leaving and be it was very jarring and unusual and of Nick nursing thing to do. I don't know who I'm picking in this series, but here's my gut pick right off the bat. I think I'm gonna go Philly in 7..

"Now, the low post. Welcome to the low post podcast. It's Friday morning. The play in his ending tonight with two really exciting games and the NPA playoffs begin on Saturday tomorrow with four games and it is time for what used to be our 8 by 8 annual tradition where coach David Thorpe of true hoop and I give 8 minute previews of a playoff series. Now because of the play and really the only downside of the plan, I don't think Adam silver took into account the impact of the play in on the 8 by 8 gimmick, which now has to be a 6 by 6 gimmick and maybe nod to a couple other series, but we're gonna go rapid fire every playoff series all the angles, all the X's and O's, coach star, how are you? Are you ready to go? Are you ready for the playoffs? I'm as ready as I can ever be after preparing for this and a few other things that I have to do. There's a lot to cover, a lot of scholarship to gain, and then as you said before we started, you can throw some of it out once the game starts, but a lot of it we won't, like we know what we're getting and a lot of these series. We just don't know what the consequences will be because these are some great match ups. Yeah. It's going to be fun to talk about. Big picture, we got the bucks who didn't quite tank into the third seed. They kind of just moon walk to their kind of fell gently onto the pillow of the third seed, forcing the Celtics to effectively choose on the last day of the season between two 7 likely Brooklyn four 5 a date with the raptors in Toronto and all that going to Canada entails. We got the sons who loom as the overall favorite. I think to win the championship after a 64 win season, we got a whole lot of other stuff, but coach, as usual, I ranked the 6th series from most interesting to least interesting. I am a dictator, my rankings are based only on my own entertainment value. Nobody else is no other factors. Can you guess which series I'm guessing top your most entertaining list and my most entertaining list in our starting point for this 6 by 6 podcast? Yeah. There was never a doubt it's Philly Toronto. And maybe it would have been filling anybody because to me the story of James Harden Joel embiid the sixers is maybe the most dramatic of anything. But the fact that it's Toronto and in Canada, their best defender won't be playing siakam is playing out of his mind. What's going to happen with Doc Rivers? What's going to happen with Hardin and envied? How good are the raptors without with a rookie playing point center forward shooting guard, small forward? I can't wait for it to start. I think everyone feels the same way. This is the one. This is the one. And everyone is saying everyone in their mother, not just everyone. Everyone in their mother and their uncle is saying that this is a nightmare matchup for the heavyweight star laden Philadelphia 76ers who indeed lost two games to the raptors once they acquired James Harden, James Harden had 30 points combined in those two games and I think 9 of 24 shooting or something very bad. They kept him off the foul line and we know conceptually why this is a nightmare matchup for Philly, right? Hardin has not looked like harden in quite a while now for any number of consistent games and the raptors are gonna throw all of these freaking 6 8 long fast dudes at him and he couldn't get by those guys one on one when they played. They're going to play the hardened embiid pick and roll in very interesting ways. I think they're gonna just shut off and beat in that action. They're not gonna let harden hit him with pocket passes. They're gonna say you're gonna beat us with a drive or your shooters are gonna beat us with threes. We're not letting you slip those pocket passes to embiid, which are layups for him. And of course, they're going to double and triple and quadruple and throw the whole kitchen sink and refrigerator at embiid in the post and force him to give up the ball and they're a great defensive team in their own rate. We can talk about rebounding and turnovers and how Toronto dominates the possession game night after night. But let me zoom out, coach. Yeah. Well, first of all, let's start. Do you agree with all of that that this is on paper for all those reasons and more that you can elaborate on a bad matchup for the sixers? Well, I would even go a little further. It's not a great matchup for anyone. Toronto's just the way they play the second half of the season. To your point about the long defenders, here's the things Zack, when they don't give you the long defender, they give you one of the best under 6 three defenders in the world and Fred van vliet. So it's not like you can take a play off now that you know van vliet on you and feel like, okay, we can score no matter what. Nick nurse is truly innovative and empowered. I think that's a really important point. There are coaches who I believe would do more if they felt like, well if it doesn't work out, I'm not going to get fired. Well, Nick nurse is not worried about where his next paycheck coming from. I don't know where we'll be Toronto. Everyone wants them all the time. He's good enough to go in any job that's open and someone have to use a draft pick or two to get them. So he is empowered. I was going to say, I would love to be, I would love to be messiah Yuri and get the call from the Lakers. Hey, we want Nick nurse is coach. All right, so how many unprotected picks do you have? Well, that's not enough. How about AD? How about could we get AD from you? Like, okay. So imagine being Nick nurse, there's nothing you can't try and not that the 6 year old have good players, of course they do, and they've got some shooters, but you can really try to be innovative to bother Joel embiid. You can try different things. You can adjust on the flight of no worries about what did the press going to say..

"All of us were going crazy when the nets were starting Deandre Jordan over him and Kenny Atkinson got fired in part because he dared start Jared Allen who was way better than Deandre Jordan over Deandre Jordan and then everyone else on the nets finally caught up. I was like, oh, can we just, can we just not have this guy on our team? Anyway, but I didn't have him on my list. Garland is on my list. And statistically, the improvement isn't like blow you away, although it's there, particularly as a passer. But this is a you know it when you see it case. This guy with his co offensive orchestrator injured with the guy they traded for and Keras levert to play that same kind of role injured for a lot of this time in Cleveland. This guy assumed number one ball handler roll and look the part. Look, the part is a passer, looked apart as a patient, probing, pick and roll guy, look the part as a leader who understands how to get his teammates involved and galvanizes them and makes them want to play harder. Just looks the part. He's had a little bit of a shooting slump recently here and there, but he's still makes big baskets when they need it. And it's just you know when you see a Darius Garland has arrived, he's kept their offensive float despite all these injuries that you've mentioned. Despite them having to play super big lineups that, you know, are working, but one of the reasons they're working is he's able to create everything off the dribble for them. I mean, Evan mobley in their starting 5 is probably the second best off the dribble threat they have and he's a power forward slash center. I just think he's a no brainer. Yeah, he is. He finished second on my list, actually, behind John again. To me, at Jeremy wasn't on your list, but I had Alan Garland and morant and in that order marante in one Garland too. It's so hard to do to make that jump into being, well, you made the point of his statistics being not huge compared to last year, not a huge difference. But his team is much better. So he's not doing that as the team is sinking. No, they're competing. They're trying to not make the play in. Until now, they've never been the threat to be the playing game, but as Toronto comes on, maybe they end up being a playing game. For Darius to do that in that environment, it's just that much harder. And he's a guy that he won't make the jollibee. I don't think he's ever going to be defensively, which I can be. He's not quite the athlete guys and explosive this. But he is sublime in his reading of the game and his craft and his patience. I think he can anchor terrific teams for years to come. That means I have three guys that in my top ten so we overlapped on 7 of ten. Let's go rapid fire through these three guys. You can start wherever you want. The three I had that you didn't have are Robert Williams the third, Tyler hero, and Anthony simons. Yeah, did I not mention Simon's on my automation? He was on my first top ten list. I had like 5 pages here. So was Robert Williams. I don't remember why I left Robert off other than he was really good last year. And I think he's just playing more, but I think about him all the time actually because the way Boston is playing defense is so much predicated on Marcus smart, who is my pick for defensive player of the year. I don't know how to vote. And Robert Wayne. Oh. Yeah. I think Marcus smart deserves defensive player of the year because they are just crushing everyone on defense. And I don't think Robert Williams and get that award. And so I would give it to Marcus smart, but I use Robert Williams as an example to young pros that I talked to about how to be a competitive defensive player, has a shop locker, he's got so much energy. So yeah. And Tyler hero, I mean, he was on my first top ten, and then I just put him around on a mention because I wasn't sure he's getting more minutes and more opportunity and the injuries have allowed him to do it, but you can't argue with what he's doing. You're not wrong with your picks, that's for sure. Time lord to me playing more is a big part of his case because the knock on him was that he just didn't play enough. And part of that was health. Part of that was part of that was also fouls. Just doing stuff that drives coaches crazy, like biting on too many pump fakes and chasing blocks when he just should maintain rebounding position. And that stuff gets coaches to take you out of games and deflate your minutes totals. This year he's playing 30 minutes a game. I think there was some crazy stat that he had only played 30 minutes a game like once or twice in his entire NBA career in any game before this season he's averaging 30 minutes a game. And I've talked a lot about the defensive scheme and how they're using him and how it's sort of built around keeping him in the corners or guarding wings instead of centers and blah blah, but he can switch. And these shot blocks at the rim. I mean, he's just he's just like vaporizing these like they don't even there are sometimes where he's so quick off the ground that he blocks the shot into like the bottom of the backboard. Like usually he block it you pin it like near the square. It's like it barely reaches the back. He's just smothering these shots. So and he's still a good passer even though his sister a little down because Boston just has so many guys who are kind of sharing that load with Horford back. So he was on my list. Hero, as someone who knows you Donna's has little quite well, what was your take on the heat brouhaha? It was a brouhaha. The other night against Golden State when I've never seen spo that angry before in a game and I love that I mean, I don't really know what happened. I don't know quite what's driving this angst within the team I have inklings here and there, but it was interesting that all the players were like even PJ Tucker was kind of shoe and Jimmy away and UD was UD was ready to go. UD was ready to fight for his coach. Yeah, I could spend an hour talking about that guy who needs to be a head coach soon, in my opinion. I don't really like the guys making the jump. I respect my profession. But he's been coaching for a long time. He's not been a cheerleader, like supposedly Jimmy Butler accused him of being, he's been a coach. And I think he'd be an incredible NBA head coach. But I'll just tell you one story. When he was in France as a rookie coming out of Florida going undrafted, he was training here afterwards and he told me, I asked how it went. He said he loved it. But sometimes there were some racist racist things going on at the clubs. And he said, but I just brought my shiv or my shank. I don't remember which one he said. I didn't know what either one was. I would not have gone out at night if I was worried that I might get attacked. But you're not as just made sure he was prepared. That's kind of who he is. My assistant Ryan penon, who's also going to be, I think, at head NBA coach one day. He's a great cook with the G league. He remembers kicking a guy out of my gym for coming in late one morning. Because it was disrespectful to coach to work..

"And he's figured that out. I give him credit for that. Four assists again to your point about his all around ability. And it's the off the dribble scoring that has really kind of offset the decline in three point shooting. If you put a smaller guy on him, he's much better this season, it just sort of whittling his way to the rim one on one than he was last season. So I have no problem with him being on the list. I would have no problem with him being in the top three. It just wasn't in my top 13. All right, I'll give you a guy on my list since we found when we didn't overlap on. Let's just get him out of the way quickly because we've already mentioned him for a second year player. I think tyrese Maxie has to be in consideration for the award straight up. And I can hear hollinger morning and groaning about it. But look, but look, he's up 9 and a half points a game. 30% from three to 42% from three and not on just wide open catch and shoot threes. He's pulling off the dribble. You go under on him, he's letting it fly. Four and a half assists the game up from two and I can hear you say, well, that's because he's playing 20 more minutes a game. And so of course his stats are going to go up. Fair, his scoring is actually down per 36 minutes. His assists are even per 36 minutes. I just don't care because to go from basically not quite afterthought, but a guy who was like, oh man, they threw him in a playoff series, randomly, and it kind of changed the series to, no, you're the third guy in a big three and you completely fit the bill playing 35 minutes a game to do that in your second year is just an absolutely mammoth accomplishment and I just think I get what hollinger and his ilk are saying. I just think he's got to be in the conversation. His improvement this season is one of the biggest stories in the NBA because it helped the sixers stay afloat while Simmons was out and their front office was navigating the Simmons situation. He gave them the wherewithal to wait and it gave them the confidence that if we trade a lot of stuff for James Harden, we got enough stuff left over to make a run at it because this guy is like a third star on our team. So I think he absolutely belongs and I know he's on your list too. He was next. He was listening. I listened to number 6 and again, those aren't real hard numbers except for my top three. Everything you said, of course, is exactly what I had a smile when you said his name. I spoke to tyreese and his dad when he was in the draft. And they were just looking for some guidance on maybe who played like, who what are some comparables that maybe they should talk about in meetings? And I've told this story maybe once before when someone's pod. And I told them I think you're a better scoring version of Kyle Lowry at this age. And at first, tyrese clearly didn't seem super enthused with that. And I explained myself as to what I saw in him that was similar to Kyle. And then I reminded him that Kyle Lowry's over $200 million in career earnings when he's done. And completely bought into it at that point. That would bring a smile to my face. How many 100 million? Multiple. Okay, all right. I'll take that comp. I just said, you know, your competitiveness, your fire, your confidence, your swagger. I've listened to people who play with Kyle and college talk about a swagger and a guy that just had a big ass, and that was about it. And yet, and that's what he's always brought. And I think tyreese has gotten to that at a young age, which Kyle did too if you remember, he was sharing time with my Conley, has it number three pick whatever. I think tyrese has an unbelievable future. And he's become a near elite offensive player and he's what 20 years old. And he's not a playable on D anymore. It used to be unplayable. And that's what he's made such a big jump. So yeah, he's I love John hollinger. That kind of improvement is not typical. It's an atypical jump and I respect him and reward him for that. Let's go to I'll take the lead and maybe this guy's in your top ten maybe. He's not as long as we're on the subject of atypical second year jumps. Maybe the FrontRunner for the award and definitely in my top ten, you mentioned that your whole list might be Memphis Grizzlies if you weren't careful. A Desmond bane, Desmond bane. I mean, plus 9 points per game. Has maintained his shooting almost exactly where it was last season in a much bigger role, and I know he spent the entire off season working with their coaches on pick and roll ball handling. On point guard play, he ran point for them in summer league. It was a huge part of their emphasis and development, not only and it's a big reason that they're 15 and two without John morant, which is crazy. Amazing. But it's also for, hey, when defenses load up on ja, we're going to need other guys who can create off the dribble who can catch and go and he's been excellent at that. And he's putting up 30 put up 30 last night. And again, if you had told people before, people loved Desmond bay and all the draftniks love doesn't mean, if you had told people before the season, he was going to be like a borderline all star averaging 18 a game and almost leading the league at three point shooting and looking this comfortable off the dribble. I think it's pick and rolls. I linked it up earlier today are like 12 or 13 per hundred possessions. You only it was at 5 or 6 last.

"Me another top ten guys. So far we're two for two overlapping. This is one if I have one that's not on your list, it'll probably be this one. I have an affinity for older players that find ways to get better because I'm in the business of play development as you know. And human beings don't stop developing at 22, 23, 24. He was old when they drafted him to Phoenix, cam Johnson. And he's older now. And he is become and I think we saw this coming and I think probably our list last year we both had Mikhail bridges. Well, here comes cam Johnson doing the same kind of thing. He's become a really good two way player who made a big leap in his three point shooting. From 35% to 45%. That is stark. That's a big deal for a guy that already defends. And he's scoring better and his per 40, 16 to 20 in a game 9.6 to 13, whatever. His PR is grown into above average player now. He's a top 50 percentile player in EPM. But to me, the biggest thing is he's become a true three and D guy. And that wasn't the case a year ago. You were wrong coach, he's in my top ten. He was almost one of my last three cuts, but I kept him in, I think just 'cause I'm partial to guys who have to do what they do. I mean, on a great team, you don't necessarily get to show all these little things you've improved upon because your role is going to be pretty limited. And I think he's got more off the dribble, juice than he did last year, a little bit of self creation. Here in this a little bit, like it's not like they're throwing him the ball to run ten pick and rolls a game, but he'll do it every now and then he's catching go game is better and when Booker was out or Paul was out, you could see him start to score more. Like it was not surprising when cam Johnson scored 20 points a game before his recent, I think what is it a quad injury before his recent injury? He was putting up 20 pretty regularly defensively. He's better, three point shooting, even his rookie year. He was 39% which is really good. 45%, that may prove a career outlier, but he's a straight up sniper now that teams are terrified of. So between that and the off the dribble stuff and doing it in the context of a team where the expectations from the coach and Chris Paul and Devin Booker and everybody involved are more or less perfection on a possession to possession basis, I had them in my top ten. I don't think he'll make my top three ballot 'cause I just don't it's just not that dramatic, but I think it's the kind of improvement if you don't watch the sun's a lot you might not even see it, but it's there. Yeah, I'm with you and I just love that he's not a young guy and he's still getting better. Again, it's near and dear to my heart. My next guy, from here on in, if any of these guys are in your top three, I don't think you're wrong. They're not in my top three. My guess is we're going to have similar top three guys, but it's super close, at least with all but maybe the very top guy. But I've heard people talking about this guy's a top 5 guy. I've got miles bridges. And he's become this elite offensive player. I want to point out that until this last win streak that one maybe four and 5, lamella ball, the hornets were actually better when he was sitting on the bench. And he's now a plus one and beyond off numbers like on basketball reference. With bridges, he's plus almost 9. Like they are, there are still right there to make the playoffs and of course there'll be a playing game. And I think he's become just that guy where he's a solid defender. He's become an elite offensive player. And I don't know that if he had just stayed where he was last year, he's in the NBA a long time. But now he's looking at some serious money because he's that much better as a player. He's going 22 a game or 20 a game from 13 last year. That's a big deal. So I mentioned before that I had a long list and then a 13 person list in between that let's get deep in the weeds. I went from like 50 to 18 to 13. So there was an 18 person list of like finalists and I cut 5 of those to get to 13. Miles bridges was in that 5 and the reason I cut him, everything everything you said is totally true. He's average 20 points a game. Like 20 points game's not easy in the NBA on a team that's winning half its games. The only reason I cut him was the 32% shooting from three after looking last season, like he had maybe established himself as a good three point shooter. And look, I understand year to year three point shooting can be fluky, right? We don't really know his true level of three point shooting yet. It's probably between this season and last season. But the reason I cut it is you can see defenses treating him like a non threat now. And I think that that has ill effects for their half court offense. You can see them ignoring him just inviting him to shoot. And it hasn't shown up in the plus minus, like you said, but I think he's had a fine season. Like I said, he was one of my 18 finalists because only I would have 18 finalists for this one. I just I'm splitting hairs and I had to cut him just for the shooting piece of it, but he's a really good all around player and he is going to get paid and they are going to pay him after not coming to an agreement before the season. Yeah, one thing and maybe it's just the coaching me, but you know you show me a player who's not shooting well or as way has in the past. And yet his offensive numbers are transcending where they were before. That's a guy that's figured some stuff out. And I don't know there's many players as terrifying if you are trying to defend them in cutting to the rim, whether it's transition or more in the half as him. He is just a scary dude. You're risking losing an arm. And that's great. Listen, we do this all the time as coaches, players, if you can't make a shot, if they're a great shooters that are cold, keep shooting. If your miles bridges keep cutting, keep slashing, get on the offensive glass because nobody can mess with you when you do that. And he's figured that out. I give him credit for that. Four assists again to your point about his all around ability. And it's the off the dribble scoring that has really kind of offset the.

"Playing so similarly to the way Ben has played and is not reticent to shoot the ball in attack. So could you also say why would the sixers have done that since we got James Harden or are you worried about how James Harden has looked there so far? I love that question. I love your opinion, but I would rather have going forward dark white and zante Murray than James Harden. Wow. Yeah. Both guys. Knowing how good tyrese max he's doing because you can always move him or one of those other guys. I'm a huge maxi guy, as you'll soon find out. But I think those two guys, which are well and that staff, and that crew around him, I think would have been better than what they're getting from James. Going forward is one thing. Yeah. Do you think they have a better chance to win the 2022 NBA championship with those two guys instead of James? I think it's probably closer than most people would guess and I probably would lean to yes and then no question going forward. It's a better deal, which is why to me. And maybe this person wouldn't want to do it. I have no idea if any of those things. But yeah, I don't know that I buy into Zach, the lack of trust people have in James Harden. Because of some things happened in the past. For this year, he's never played with Joel embiid. Anyone close to Joel embiid before. But I'm a little suspect, like, you know, he's got to, you've got that east is a beast. And he's used to it from the west, and we know what happened in the west in years past. So I think he's got a lot of pressure right now. If I'm filming, I'd rather have those two guys and a growing tyrese. That's fascinating. This is the second time you've just blown my mind on what was supposed to be an anodyne most improved flare podcast. Look, they got off to just a roaring start with Hardin and embiid. 5 O schedule was so, so, but they were just destroying everybody. And since then, you know, James is set out. I think a couple of games with the hamstring stuff for maintenance or whatever the whatever the right terminology is in this day and age. And hasn't looked like, you know, it's back to that why isn't you finishing better at the rim? Worse where's the pop? And I said it at the time of the trade. There is no person in the NBA. Coach GM team governor player equipment manager, trainer, mascot, halftime performer, under more pressure in the NBA playoffs than James Harden. And if he plays like he has played in the last, let's say 6 games. I think the sixers are a team that the top teams in the east don't fear very much. If he plays like he did in the first 5 games or Ed his peak, then they're a force to be reckoned with because I think they have enough around him to make it. I mean, the whole point of the deal doing that deal versus the spurs deal that you mentioned was, yeah, coach Thorpe in three years. Yeah, we might be better off with the deal you're mentioning. We're making this deal for today. And if this deal doesn't turn out to be better for today, then it's going to go to end up being potentially an organizational disaster. I still think it is better for today, but I like your opinion and it's going to make me rethink it. As for dejante, I use it in my top ten, no brainer. You mentioned Gabe Vincent. He's kind of, they're almost opposite candidates for this award and I never know what to do with the Gabe Vincent in the max truces and the guys who go from like no track record to rotation player tracker. Couldn't gave Vincent falling out of the rotation recently kind of hurt his case for me through no fault of his own. They just got a little depot back there deeper. Right. So I tend to view those guys almost as rookies and cross them off as I go. And deja is the opposite and that like, in a bigger role, he sustained his production. He sustained, he shot a little better from three and a little better from two. There are good offensive team when he's on the floor and as you know, some guys when you say, here are the keys. Here's the, here's the whole offense. You're carrying everything. They're efficiency kind of quakes a little bit. They can't maintain what they've done. He did. I agree his defense dropped off, but that's the hardest thing to do in the NBA is to be the number one option on an offense, and I think he acquitted himself pretty well. So I have him, unless you have other thoughts on any of that, give me your next finalist. I'm sure it's on everyone's list. Some guys don't do their numbers aren't huge if you look at per 40 per 36 whatever. But you can't also just ignore raw stats. They just got more minutes. And I remember Zach Randolph, when he won his award, his most improved. He said, I didn't get any better. They just finally played me. So I always think about stuff like that. So I got Jordan Poole. In there, I'm certain you do too. There was a period of time where we weren't sure he gonna make it. Fair to say as a late first round pick to begin with. And that's a point I want to make to with some other guys that have on the list that are sick in your players. I think my buddy, our buddy John hollinger, doesn't like looking at guys in their second year for this award. And I find fault with that. He and I are, you've argued about it very joyfully because he's one of my favorite people ever. Not everyone gets better after their first year. This is hard. It's a hard league..

"And now, the low post. Welcome to the low post podcast on a beautiful Friday morning back on the east coast after a week with the run and gun in trash talking in your Jersey. We don't even need Ja Morant apparently to win games, of course they do need job rant Memphis Grizzlies, and it's time for one of my favorite annual traditions. We do these awards podcast toward the end of the year. This might be my favorite one because it's just the biggest list. You can go any direction you want. Most improved player with from true hoop, one of the guys I've looked up to in the business for a long time, just a generous spirit, good coach, player development expert, David Thorpe, how are you, sir? I am great, Zach. I hope you're doing well, now that you're back. I'm trying. I'm trying. So our assignment was ten finalists for a most improved player. And that sounds like a lot. I got down to 13 and then on my flight back from Memphis, I closed my laptop and opened up a book because I just couldn't, I couldn't get from, I couldn't whittle down from 13 to ten, but I finally forced myself this morning, of course I started with like two pages of 50 guys. So to get down to ten, was tough. I assume you had the same experience, so many young guys, so many even guys in the middle of their careers. Guys on new teams, they flash new skills they get better, but I'm gonna let you lead and I'm curious just how many of our final ten overlap between our list. So you can go, you can go, I don't know if you ranked them ten to one. I didn't even really rank mine. You can just go in whatever order you want, give me your first of your ten finalists. Please, before I do that, Jack, let me just say that, well, thank you for having me. The only disappointment in doing this is I don't get a chance to listen to it on my walk. It's one of my favorite things to do and listen to your show. When I walk every day, it's a long list, as you say, and I've got some audible mentions and I want to be clear, I had some protocols that had a follow, if you were like you mentioned, there's some guys that have been really good, but have been illegal a little bit. Well, they can't, they can't be most improved from last year. If it's not their career, you're also. That was just one of my rules. And you also had to help your team win games still just because you're playing better if you're not better if they're not there when you're on the court, that's not great. So let me first give you my honorable mentions. Just to say, hey, respect. I see what you're doing. I got Josh Hart, Tyler hero, gave Vincent, Jaron Jackson, junior, Cole Anthony LaMelo Ball, presses that you went to Carter junior, Gary Payton, junior, and my favorite omission because he might, what he's done is extraordinary is Jason Tatum, who has gone from being really good to walking the path of absolutely the best amongst the best. If he was your number one, I wouldn't quibble. I have him just out of my top ten because he already is so good in Olympian and all of that, but I have to mention that I see what he's doing because what he's doing is not easy. To go from great to extraordinary is the hardest jump in the game and I see Jayson Tatum doing it. So that being said, my number ten, I think I got all these. I don't know. My top three are my top three, everything else is a jumbo Jack. I've got number ten, Dijon Murray. Okay. We overlap. He's on my list of ten. Let me just tackle the honorable mentions for a second because that was a lot. That was a lot. You just dumped a lot on me. Number one, you kind of blew my mind with Jayson Tatum because he wasn't even on my long list and because I just felt like he already made that leap from good to superstar and then he had like the slow start to the season is almost remade the same leap. I think his playmaking has gotten a little better. His numbers are about the same as they were from last year. I'm going to have to reconsider my entire ballot now that you've turned me on to Jayson Tatum because he's not even I have in my top ten and you could probably guess who it is when we get there a guy who did that leap. Another guy who made that like from star to straight up superstar leap. So it wasn't Tatum. Josh Hart, you mentioned, was one of my last three heartbreak. First of all, everybody that you mentioned from Cole Anthony to GP two to I don't really remember who else was on my long list. The guys you mentioned that were on my last three, remember I went from 13 to ten. You've got two of them in your honorable mentions. Josh Hart was won. And I just have no reason why he was omitted other than I just, you know, I don't discount the blazers numbers where you score like gangbusters, but that team's not trying to win. His assists like he doubled his assist for the season. It's a painful emission and one doll Carter junior was also one of my three last omissions statistically his jump isn't it's weird because when I watch him play, I'm like, wow, these guys are totally different player and obviously he's made more threes this season than he did. I think his entire career combined, that's a big deal. Statistically, the jump isn't that big. Isn't as big as it sort of looks. And the team is obviously not very good. So that was those were my just to hit your honorable mentions. Two of the three were my painful omissions. I have a feeling my third painful emission is going to be in your top ten. Dejante Murray. I mean, you make the case for dejante Murray. Go ahead. Well, you know, he was a good player. And I use there's lots of metrics, and I probably subscribe to all the same things that most people who love this stuff do. I love Taylor snars stuff at dunks in threes, and I look at escalated plus estimated plus minus. And he was a 85th percentile last season. That's good. Like you're a really good player. And people think maybe you could grow into being an all star. And that's exactly what's happened. He's now in the top 6% on the league. He maintained it, he's not, I don't think he's quite as good defensively. Metrically, but look around him. He put him on a different team and he'd be like, put him on a Cavaliers and he'd be even better with those metrics. And yet, his offense is shot up. He's become such a good offensive player. And you know, he's improved his scoring. He now looks and I'll say this. I'm comfortable saying this. I thought before the season started, Daryl morey and the spurs should have done a deal, send Ben Simmons to the spurs and get back Murray and durk white. I thought that the sixers would be the best team in the league if they had both white and Murray. You can now say, why would this birds have done that? Because ashante is playing so similarly to the way Ben has played and is not reticent to shoot the ball in attack. So could you also say why would the sixers have.

"And so again, I think there's just different calculations that different teams have to have to take. If they had taken him in the top 5, I wouldn't be happy with this pick right now. And I probably wouldn't be happy if he's averaging 18 points a game right now. But where the pacers drafted him, I think he ended up being a steel and probably should have went a few spots, a few spots higher. Let's talk about Franz Wagner. A guy that was a very controversial lottery pick actually started 2021 draft kind of as a bubble first rounder guy kept moving up in part because the analytics guys loved him. They loved especially the defensive package that he brought because you know, whatever you get a high rate of steals and a high rate of blocks on a player and you have both of those numbers high, there's something that's gonna pop in the analytics models. And that's sort of what happened with Franz Wagner. But you know, when you watched him play at Michigan, you know, offensively, you know, he's not gonna be an alpha, you know, his three point shot was somewhat questionable. And I think people were back and forth on how you would fit. He wasn't great in the summer league. He wasn't great in pre season, but he's been consistently really solid for Orlando in the first 5 preseason games for him. And he looks like he's exactly again what the scouting report thought thought he would be a guy who can play multiple positions on defense and who can be a complimentary player on offense. And the fact that he's shooting 41% from three right now in the early going is a very positive sign for the magic. Yeah, I think he was the only guy I didn't put in the lottery on your pod that ended up going lottery. I may be wrong as we go through these lists, but I did not like them. It wasn't because he beat Florida state in the NCA tournament. That wasn't at all. He was great in that game, but when I started studying tape, I quite frankly thought he was soft. And so just to finish this thought, last night, we're taking this on Thursday Wednesday night, Houston, I'm sorry. Miami just beat that tar out of Brooklyn. Like, you guys has them as a great article in GQ. I highly recommend you read it Chad. I just read it yesterday. All about heat culture. Well, he coached the heat cultured Brooklyn all over the court last night. Just bullied them. This is a tough physical season for different reasons. We can talk about the rule changes, whatever, web one knows about an assistant in your pod. It's a more physical and the egg. And I did not expect it necessarily to happen so quickly. But as I watched these players to get ready for your pod and for the true hoop, Wagner just I just thought he played soft a lot last year in Michigan and I'm happy to report that I was wrong. I wasn't wrong about what I saw. I was wrong about not projecting that he could get a little more physical because he has been. There has been a couple of plays even to highlight that this season where he just bullied smaller guys and got buckets. His be defense has been good. I actually talked to a friend of mine with the magic organization very, very happy with him. This was two weeks ago before the season even started. I've watched two of their games recently. I've liked what I've seen. I've loved him. His shot looks great. If he's gonna be a 3D guy that could also bully switches at his size against smaller guards, that's a really good player who's got all star potential. Now he won't be he won't be starting and All-Star Game, but I loved Chris Middleton in year two. And the fact that GM of a team told me, asked me, find a guy we can go get that you think is gettable. And I recommend Chris Middleton he was still with the nets. I don't know why Franz Wagner can't be Christmas, and he may not get there. But he's a really tall man with skill and fluidity in his hips. He can move he's not an easy guy to stay in front of as he improves his ball handling. Middleton doesn't get bodied, he shoots over you. So if I was training bog, which I'm not, I've never met him. I would challenge him. The beat Chris Middleton learned how to get your shot over people, not today or tomorrow he's a rookie. But in time, be a good defense a player know how to be a second or a third leading score, but a guy that we can turn to, and now he's an Ulster. Well, if he doesn't get that, it's just a solid player, then great job by Orlando drafting him. I thought they made a mistake on draft night. And right now it does look like they did it all. Let's talk about Josh giddy, a guy that I was a little bit skeptical about the Oklahoma City Thunder taking at 6 over Jonathan at the time over Davey and Mitchell, some other guys out there. And then we don't see him in summer league. He's played pretty well for Oklahoma City early on and my concern about giddy or why it positive. One giddy is an elite passer. He sees the floor so well. He has a great feel for the game. There's some toughness to his game, some swagger to his game. He just got absolutely roasted in Australia on the defensive end and I think there's still some big problems with that right now in the NBA. And he was not a really great three point shooter. And that seemed to be too major red flags on what he was going to do at the next level. He shot the ball pretty well at Oklahoma City, though I certainly wouldn't call him anything like a pure shooter. His passing that he leads all rookies and assists he's averaging 5.6 assists a game, had a tendency game on Wednesday night as well. But that swagger, the way he approaches the game the confidence with which he approaches the game. That's evident. I'm kind of now on the fence about whether maybe Oklahoma City made the right pick here with giddy at 6. Yeah, we don't know. He can't guard it all. When you're evaluating players, you can't just evaluate the pensive player individually. You have to look at it schematically as well as what the roster looks like. He doesn't have a lot of help. So if you think about it this way, if you think of you and I are kayaking and REITs in our own separate river, but we're next to each other. And my river's flowing much faster than yours. Even if we're equal kayakers, it's gonna appear like how much faster you because my river's flowing faster. Well, in that same analogy, the Oklahoma City defense has a terrible river. It's flowing backwards. There's a bunch of young guys. If they never beat the Lakers, or just telling they down 25, I watched the game. 26, they were down 26 in that game. Yeah..

"thorpe" Discussed on Chad Ford's NBA Big Board

"And it worked out great, and listen, I'm wrong all the time and I'll go into another details and things have been wrong about. But I didn't expect them to win at Denver in LA, but they did. I didn't see the light that quickly. I don't think they're gonna make the plants this year. Let's be clear about that. But and marketing it, I think it's kind of been a disappointment at small forward, but they did that because they're not taking mobile out of four. And Jared Allen's a good cetera, solid NBA player. It's a nice combination. Mobly is he's a terrific player. Again, if you're going to be a one dimensional player and there are one dimensional players and league like Damian and James Harden for many years, you have to be over the top elite to still impact games hugely and get paid a lot of money. And they are. And that's fine. It's just this is not many of those guys around. So when you look like mole in terms of length and size and Scotty two, you should impact the way they do with their defense. And they're doing it. Now I'm not I'm surprised that Moby's been as good defensively as he has because he's weak. Now Scotty Barnes is not weak anymore. He looks so strong, credit to what he's been doing since he graduated since he left college. And with Toronto, mobile still very weak and Finn. And yet his timing and his field defensively, both those guys do what we call tall up really well. They don't foul, shooters, Scotty set some fouls, aggressively trying to get loose balls and steals. Not so much on shots. I love that. I have a rule, my defensive rules. Number one is don't fab. Mobley and Scotty don't foul. Mobile makes it hard to score on them. I mean, most guys don't make shots in the NBA even when you just tall up and put your hands up. And he does that. Offensively is where his patients has surprised me. He's not doing some things as well as he will one day, of course. But his little fake pivot game has been really good. He and Scottie both take advantage of smaller guys just overwhelm them physically. And in Evan's case, it's impressive because he's not that strong. So he can he passes it. He handles it. He looks so much like Chris Bosh that I'm surprised when he's not left handed sometimes. And he has a left hand around the rim that's good. But when he shoots his threes and his pull up jumpers in his right hand, I have to remind myself, I'm not looking at Chris Bosh. Now, I don't think he's got bashes quickness. At this age, boss was exceptionally quick for a man that size at 19, 20 years of age. Mobly, I don't think it's quite there yet. Although I think he's close, but his skill game is better than basha this age in terms of dribbling and passing it. He's a little more advanced with that. All told, you know, I'm not sure I'm right. I'm not sure I was right to say mobley had that he was a better prospect. I've kind of flipped on that. I think Scotty, it probably has a chance to be a little bit better if they both reach their ceiling. But because I'm not sure mobile looks like he could be an MVP of the league, but it's not far. It's not far from that. He's a franchise guy in Cleveland. It's very fortunate to have drafted him. Yeah, I think that's all right and again, a lot of the scouting report about Evan mobley is just panned out to be true and you know, people would say, well, why wouldn't it be true? But it's a transition from college basketball to the NBA, and especially early on, often we see Ricky's struggle. I think one of the reasons that I'm so jazzed about in Barnes is it's unusual for rookies, even rookies that turn out to be all stars and even top ten guys in the NBA to come out of the gate like these two guys have come out of the gate. And impact winning impact overall their team, not just an individual box scores. And, you know, mobly, the ball handling, you know, there's that, I think it was in the preseason when he went coast to coast and dribbled behind his back. You know, that he does things that you just don't typically see 7 footers do. There's a fluidity to his game. That's really special. He's still also working on his three point shot. I think it's going to come along, but it's not quite there yet, but his ability to take the ball at the top of the key, break his guy down off the dribble is really impressive and then the one thing I would say is Boston defend like this. I'm not sure boss defended like this ever. The way that he did late in his career, but remember, Bosch was kind of the first experiment to small ball 5 that isn't draymond green. Remember draymond came after. He was a Christmas of four. And he became an elite defender because of his speed. You're not wrong. The way he protects the rim, I would give mobley the advantage. Yeah. I don't remember his wingspan, but he's a super long guy that's just hard to score on. And he's not trying to block your shot if you see him. He's just making a tough on you. You block the shot typically with the guy that doesn't see you or it's too casual. And I will look at the numbers later. It's too early to do it. But we can check to see how guys are finishing on you. And I bet his numbers are going to be very low, which is a good thing. Field goal percentage against him one on one will be very low because he's making the top and he's not falling. Well, these two guys are right now the favorites I think right now in The Rookie of the year race, both have been incredibly impressive and look, we're only one week into the season right now. Typically, rookies get better in the second half than they do in the first half of the season. And so we could see something really special from both of these players. When we come back, we're going to talk about a couple of other of the top lottery picks who've also played well, and we'll talk about a few lottery picks that have struggled a little bit out of the gate. But before we do so, I want to talk about our sponsor..

"I mean, didn't run over a pitcher. Didn't try to dunk it and get a potential charge. He just got the bucket. These are very good signs. You are right to point out his assist average in, I think there's 5.6 in the preseason. He's not being asked to do that as much in the NBA, nor should he be. He isn't really that player just yet. He's got to get much, much better as a ball handler in my opinion. If he's ever going to be an MVP level player. If he doesn't do that, he's just going to be an all star. And maybe in all league performer because he's a two way player. If you can develop handles the way all of our elite players like Hawaii and Durant at his size can dribble the ball when I always got a chance in every P level player because he's gonna win a ton of games. He's right now as net rating wrote it down it's plus 7. That doesn't sound like a ton, but trust me, Jalen green is -18. And of course he's not a different team. I get that. But that's not like the raptors have a big winning record or anything. He impacts wins because he plays the right way now. Just wait till a skill game explodes because I think it's going to. Does his role change in a significant way when siakam comes back. You know, this is the one question, right? Pascal siakam, who is there all star has been out with an injury, but he's going to be back. Probably sooner rather than later. What role, what happens to Scottie when siac comes back? Yeah, two things one he'll play less, which is good 'cause he is exhausted in the fourth quarters. I've noticed how tired he is late in games. He only averages like 20 something minutes, Florida state plays 11 guys. So he has not played this many minutes ever in high school. They were blowing everyone out with four or 5 NBA players whoever was on his team. He's tired, and he's playing both ways. It's not like he could take plays off against Jayson Tatum, right? There's lots of guys in the league that are very good players. Lamella ball and Anthony Edwards don't tend to guard the opponent's best offensive players. Scottie does. So he's a little fatigued. Siakam will be a welcome relief for that because he'll play a few less minutes of game. But I don't think they're gonna cut many minutes. And then in terms of on court role, not really because, again, this is where I think Nick nurse has done a great job. They could ask him to do everything, the way Jalen green, for example, is doing in Houston. I don't think that's the best thing for most players. It worked for Kevin Durant many years ago, even though it took a long time for his team to start doing better when he was on the court. I don't think it'd be working for Scott 'cause he's not that kind of shooter. So playing off other guys plays perfectly into what he can do best, which is dominate off the ball. That's the one thing if he can learn to dominate with the ball and then he's Magic Johnson. That's a big ask. I think he's got potential for that. I don't know if we'll ever get it. No one else ever has before. That's only one magic. But to learn to dominate off the ball and then pick your spots, draymond green is a great example of that, is fine for him early in his career. And so I think that siakam will be better. The raptors will win more. And I think scotti will have another primary guy along with Fred because OJ really isn't that player. So now they have those guys playing off of Pascal and Fred. And I think they'll be better than I think he'll be better because of in terms of metrics. You know, one really cool thing to end on Scotty Barnes is raptors fans freaked out. We were talking about it you and I, I was probably the only person that had Scotty Barnes mocked to the raptors for quite a long time because we just sort of knew about Masai and what sort of player Maasai really likes. And it was a tough decision between him and Jalen suggs suggs also brings a lot of the things that Masai likes and a player, you know, as well. But raptors, fans were despondent. And one of the cool things about doing it doing a sub stack and having this sort of collection of readers over at MBA big board dot com, you have the same thing over at tru hoop is these are more advanced fans. These are people that are really carefully watch the game. And so one of the things I love is, you know, in the comment section and then the emails I get. You know, you get a lot of fans that are really intelligent about the game. And many of them were very, very skeptical about Barnes, but so many of them have written to me and saying, you know, I want to be a skeptic, but every game I just fall more and more in love, love with this guy, and people that are non raptors fans saying the same thing. He's past the eye test around the league, same with general managers, same with scouts that we talk about. I absolutely think that after this part, he's been the biggest revelation in the NBA as just it's hard to take your eyes off Scotty Barnes and when you're watching him play and I couldn't be more bullish about him. I think he does absolutely not just have that all star ceiling, but that superstar I'm ceiling in him. You're right, there's a few things he needs to do. So let's pivot to Evan mobley, because if we were doing a rookie of the year race right now, it would be a tight race because Evan mobley has been dominant, especially on the defensive end. I mean, we talk about Scotty Barnes being able to guard 5 players, but actually what Evan mobley's impact defensively. If you look at some of the advanced numbers right now, I mean, he's been one of the best defenders in the NBA. Early on, the calves are shockingly winning basketball games that we didn't think so. He seems like the perfect fit. Calves are using him in the same way. He's guarding more, not necessarily one through 5, but three through 5 for sure, Eva mobley is guarding and his quickness his ability to both protect the rim, but guard on the perimeter. And then, you know, there's been some nice stuff on the offensive end as well, though he's maybe a little bit further behind there. What do you think about Eva mobile early on in his career? Man, I love him so much. I told our partner and founder to have our dear friend Henry Abbott. You know, well, we did a show, I think on Friday and where I said, I said, I think having me, I think I even wrote this where I'm starting to see the light at the end of this dark Cleveland Cavaliers tunnel. And it worked out great, and listen, I'm wrong all the time and I'll go into another details and things have been wrong about. But I didn't expect them to win at Denver in LA, but they did..

"Alpine sanguine who is slowing down mostly because he's been hesitant about things. Scottie and mobly of slowing down because they just know I need to read this a little bit better. And so rushing causes problems. And I'm very impressed that they've done that in week one, not in month one or month three near the end of it. It's right now, which bodes very well for their future, I think, and Scotty's case, if you've watched Chad, I'm sure you have he's starting positions guarding the other team's best player. They'll switch. But he has outplayed Jason Tatum, one on one in preseason and regular season head on head to head. He picks them up, and then if they switch off fine, but he's starting to guard out all these guys, which is what I thought he could be as an elite defender. And I think Chad and we're all guilty of this. I think as a coach, I'm less guilty because it's in our blood. It's half of the game. Defense is half of the game. We have a hard time codifying it and really evaluating it. Metrically, in some cases anyway. And box scores, but I promise you as a coach, it's 50% of the game. And this guy probably along with mobile, you're gonna be the two best defensive players in the draft, which right away gets it ahead of the pack. So the fact that he can still get so much better Chad and already is the best rookie in terms of how he's impacting game, except for maybe Chris duarte, who is 24 years old. So no surprise there. Yes, Scotty's on his way to being a real special talent, I think. Yeah, a lot of a lot of the scouting report that you gave us just really lined up, right? The ability to guard 5 positions on the floor. You know, sometimes we say that hyperbolically. But in this case, it was legitimate. This was literally Scotty Barnes can guard one through 5. We've actually seen the raptors employ him this way. His infectious personality that we talked about how much his teammates and coaches loved him hearing that raves coming out of Toronto about how he gets along with his teammates, how he how he's interacted. His feel for the game, which you talked about and his ability to see the floor. And to read the game, as you said, I think that's really been a parent. You know, interestingly, he had a three to one assist to turnover ratio in the preseason and really kind of he actually led the team and assist, not Fred van vliet, not Gordon drag itch. That's not been the case in the regular season and he's actually been more turnover prone than he was at Florida state, actually, though he did have 7 assists on Wednesday night, which was by far the best assist total that he's had so far. It's interesting to me, though that there's a couple of areas and then there's one other area that was a negative, which is turned out to be true, which is this three point shot still needs a lot of work and that's I think that's still the case. Though I'm impressed that he hasn't really been hesitant to shoot it the way let's say someone like Ben Simmons was coming in when he knew that was a weakness. But I've been impressed with his aggressiveness. If I had a concern about Scotty Barnes, was that sometimes I just didn't think he attacked the way that his talent suggested that he could that he didn't take over the game that he didn't charge to the basket and just recognize I'm bigger, more athletic and faster than everybody. Scotty Barnes and I actually think this is a plus. Sometimes I think it's okay for rookies to have high turnovers if it means they're being aggressive. And Scottie's being really aggressive, but I think that's the one thing that's really stood out for me both in the preseason and the regular season. He acts like he is already a star. The way he plays out there. He does not play like a rookie. He doesn't defer like a rookie. And that was probably the big pleasant surprise that I saw early on is the Scotty Barnes and attack mode. For sure, I mean, everything you said is exactly right. Let's put it this way. If he plays at Florida state, the way he's playing now, their national champions. They were a very good team. They were a four seat, I believe. But there's a process to this. There's a growing up thing, and quite frankly in the NBA, when you are a number four pick it adds some ego to you that I think he needed to have and kind of swallow that. His mindset has been the most important transition from college. Now, college of the different game it's more physical and it's more crowded in the paint. The pro game is so much more spread out. But his mindset to dominate the paint is not something we saw in college at all. He had a monster tip dunk over Jayson Tatum. He lurks around the rim like he's 7 feet tall, which he's not, although his super long, he bullies little guards, happily, like magic used to do with his butt, kind of runs the offense with his with his rear end when he has that matchup advantage. I mean, I see lots of things. If you want to talk about we can that he's got to get better at, including, of course, three point shooting. But that disposition to dominate did not exist consistently in college like it does now. It bodes very well for his future and the raptors as well. But importantly, he doesn't do it at the expense of the team. When Fred van vliet has it going on, he's gotta get out of the way happily. When you talk about reading the game and feel for the game, here's a great example. He said, a number of baskets where he's on the perimeter, he's not a good three point shooter and no one's guardian intelligently. And sometimes they say he's out there when the read is correct, but there has been times when he recognizes his man has lost sight of him because he's not a threat. He just cuts right to the rim. One time in transition, I think it was precious, was running rim to rim. The ball is being the ball was being pushed down on the left side of the court. Scottie was trailing. He had gotten the rebound and got the outlet pass. So what you want is now pretty much in the ducker spot having gone down the middle. And I thought Scottie watching a live, I didn't watch a lot but watch it on synergy. I thought on this play, he would just kind of park himself what we call the slot position like above the break on the right or left side of the floor. The ball was on the left wing. And then I thought, maybe it was the top at the top of the key 'cause it was going there. He just kept going right to the front of the Raven, though when she was in the duck spot, they filled this guy, he just got an easy layup. He kind of side stepped around, printer, the little paint picture from Boston. He made a nice little two foot sidestep, avoided the charge. No one's going to see that as a highlight that has a coach alarm bells are ring for me. Had the sense to know there's a second Carter available, and then didn't run over at you. I mean, didn't run over a pitcher. Didn't try to dunk it and get a potential charge. He just got the bucket. These are very good signs. You are right to point out his.

Trouble Church Browne

"On this episode five minutes in Church history, we are talking about Robert Brown he was an English separatist t was born in fifteen fifty and he died in sixteen thirty three. But we've titled This episode Trouble Church Round because that's what he was known as by those who didn't agree with him and those that he tangled with throughout his life. So I'm sure you're intrigued. Let's jump right in he studied at. Cambridge. University and there he fully aligned himself with the puritans he came under a puritan influence. And he sided with the puritans against the Elizabethan forces in the church, of England at that time. Now, the puritans at that moment were attempting to reform the church from within and Robert Brown was part of that movement but by the end of the fifteen seventy. So he began to realize where he decided that that was not the right path to take, and so he gave up on that attempt to reform from within and he decided to separate in fifteen eighty one he is credited as founding what would be the first congregational church. He was the first to officially secede, and we need to realize that he's about thirty years old at this time as he's doing this. Well, he was arrested, but he was very quickly released and within a few months he left for the Netherlands. There in fifteen, eighty, two married he married Alice Allen and together they had nine children she died in sixteen ten. But he married her back in fifteen eighty to fifteen, eighty three. He wrote his book by this title, a treatise of reformation without tearing for any and of the wickedness. which will not reform till the magistrate. Command or compel them. In this book which is really small tract actually he puts forward the notion of the separation of church and state. He believes that the church is not ruled by the monarch by Civil Magistrate, but the church is ultimately ruled over by Christ himself and churches. A Matter Church membership is a matter of private conscience and not a public mandate were law enforced by the magistrate. The Queen was over the civil life and over the magistrate, but the church separate from that, and so this is a very important book in the history of ideas, very important book and political philosophy and in the history of the church. And the first paragraph Robert Trouble Church Brown says it is marvelled an often talked of among many why we should be so reviled and so troubled many and also leave our country we talking there about himself and his fellow dissenters and how they had to leave their country. He continues for Suth say the enemies there is some hidden sing in them more than plainly appear with for they bear evil will to their Queen Elizabeth into their country. They, forsake the Church of God and condemn the same and are condemned of all the also discredit and bring into contempt the preachers of the Gospel in other words these dissenters are something wrong with them. They're against the Queen there against the Church of England, and to that Robert Brown says, we say that they are the men which trouble Israel, these preachers in the Anglican Church. They seek evil to the Prince and not we. And that they forsake in condemn the church and not we. Well, that was Robert. Brown in fifteen, eighty three but in fifteen, eighty five, he decided to go back into the Church of England. So after about five years and after his book which caused many ripples in England he went back into the Anglican Church he wasn't a total conformist however, and he often clashed with the church and its leadership has said that he was arrested thirty two times over the course of his ministry for his views. He did end up in the East Midlands in a small little village Thorpe H. He was there from fifteen ninety one until his death in sixteen, thirty, his followers, the Brown lists you might have heard of them made their way onto the mayflower and cross the Atlantic. Well, that's trouble church. Robert. Brown the English separatists I'm Steve Nicholson. Thanks for listening in five minutes churches.

Special Update with Dr. Osguthorpe

"Welcome to essential oil solutions with doe Tara. Today we're bringing you a recording from Kirk showers and Dr Russell Oscar Thorpe discussing updates on the current situation and advice on how to keep you and your family healthy. I am Kirk Jars. And I'm pleased to host this March sixteenth episode of Covert Nineteen with Doctor Russell Oscar Thorpe Rush. You've been at the hospital all day. Thank you for taking the time to do this. You must be exhausted. You look pretty good. Thanks my pleasure. Good to be with you. We'll start with the graphic from the World Health Organization. There are now one hundred sixty eight thousand in one thousand nine hundred confirmed cases six thousand six hundred ten deaths one hundred forty eight countries with cases and as a potentially significant turning point. There are now more cases of the virus outside of China. Then within the phrase of the day's flatten the curve. All of these stories seem to rotate around that phrase. Europe is now the global epicenter of the virus. According to the World Health Organization Italians remain essentially under house arrest. Germany is sealing its borders. The Netherlands has ordered all schools bars restaurants and cafes closed similar measures are also enforced in France the Czech Republic Austria prohibiting gatherings of more than five people. The list goes on and on. What are you seeing arrest in Spain? We've had a national lockdown. That's gone into effect. Britain's Health Secretary has recently asked that people over seventy avoid going outside and stay at home and Canada recently closed. Its borders to everyone except Canadian citizens and permanent residents in the United States the CDC has recommended gatherings of fifty people are more be cancelled or postponed and just before we came on the White House is further reduced the number to ten as well as provided many other guidelines for us to follow on Sunday the US Federal Reserve cut interest rates to essentially zero to try to ward off another really bad stock. Day didn't work immediately. Us stocks plunged the Dow tumbles nearly three thousand points. The worst point drop in history businesses are of course affected many retailers including Nike and Rei are temporarily closing their retail stores In the United States following president trump's recommendations operations in bars and restaurants are being limited and hotels resorts are announcing closures. Airlines have slashed their flight schedules and are asking for government assistance now in the United States and there are multiple cruise ships that are stranded looking for port. It's pretty astounding on any one of these week. Focus for a half hour on the applications. And why but I WANNA get to. I think what is the unique benefit of having you with us to help us understand a few things each day? Let's start with China yesterday. It was reported. They had only twenty new cases dramatic downturn from thousands of new infections day so is China largely pass the covert nineteen fears? What can we learn from Chinese China's timeline for the rest of us? There have been a lot of headlines and folks talking about China being through the worst of it. We have seen this dramatic drop in positives out of the province. And who bay and I think that's very positive and is largely due to the measures that the public health sector in China and government have used to flatten the curve. There and so this is evidence that social distancing and flattening the curve actually works do not link and now I'm probably asking for more commentary than facts quickly if we're seeing some reports that China's easing up on all of the things. They did to flatten the curve. Because the curve has been flattened there for the moment in the past. When you've dealt with these like this do we expect to stay down as China? Like OKAY ONES DOWN. Also going to happen again there. That's a great question. I would say that because CORONA VIRUS OR COVA. Nineteen is new. We don't really know what's going to happen next. But you asked me. Because of what's happened in the past with pandemics the most applicable for me would be what happened in two thousand nine with the h one n one pandemic without pandemic. There were measures that were instituted worldwide to try and slow the spread of the virus. Nothing to the scale that like we have done with Kobe. Nineteen but we tried to limit the spread of h one n one and it worked but instead of this nice kind of flat curve that we see idealized in so many graphs in two thousand nine h one n one. Most countries experienced multiple peaks of illness throughout the year. I'm not sure if that's what will happen in China. But if you're asking for my opinion based on the fact that a large well the whole earth's population is susceptible right for the most part to this virus. I would expect there to be multiple outbreaks of the virus throughout the year. And that as we both institute and then relax social distancing or public health measures to slow the spread of the virus. When we relax the virus will kind of flare and we will see secondary outbreaks of the virus even in populations where we've seen a decrease but that's my opinion. I'm not sure if everyone shares it but we've we saw that with two thousand nine h one n one. It's comparing apples and oranges. But it's the best we've got well on that front. Some of the big medical news over the weekend is that infected people without symptoms might be driving the spread of Krahn virus more than we realized. What do we know there well? There are limited reports coming out of virology lab suggesting that people who become infected can shed the virus before they get symptoms of the virus and that becomes problematic. Because if we can spread the virus so shutting and spreading are not the same thing right but if you can spread the virus or infect others if your ability to transmit the virus occurs before you have symptoms of the virus then social distancing is not as effective however we know from China based on what they've done that social distancing is working so I believe that you are most effective at spreading the virus when you are symptomatic and these reports of being able to spread the virus. When you're a symptomatic are real. We need to digest them and understand them but right now I think the lion's share of spreading of the viruses occurring when people are symptomatic small amounts of transmission of the virus will occur potentially before. You're symptomatic matic symptomatic after your symptoms have resolved but for the most part. It's going to be right in the middle. When you have that fever and cough and shortness of breath big question is will the prevalence of the corona virus naturally dissipate once? The weather gets warmer and a side. Question is Kennedy. Even thrive in warm hot weather. I've seen those reports I'm not so certain that warm weather will decrease the spread of the virus. What may decrease the spread of the virus is the fact that many of our institutions like school will close in the summertime and we'll see smaller groups of people coming together all the time instead of groups of classrooms thirty will be at home roughly playing in smaller groups less than ten for example all summer long in two thousand nine. We saw a summertime outbreak of illness and it went against the grain of our normal influenza outbreak that we normally experience every winter in both the southern and northern hemispheres. But I don't know the answer to your question Kirk I would say that. We hope that warmer weather will decrease transmissibility because the viruses enveloped virus and the virus lands on a surface. And it's really hot in the middle of the summer that the virus will immediately die quote unquote and not be able to infect others. But we don't know yet we'll find out as time moves on. The second question is In an earlier episode. You'd mentioned that there's not yet a medical cure for cove in nineteen as a novel drawn virus but Are Their home. Remedies available that can cure or prevent the virus. No Right now. To the best of our understanding there are not any methods of curing Kobe. Nineteen or treating covert nineteen other than social distancing and preventing yourself from getting infected. It is important to remember that most people who get infected even after we've started looking at the outbreaks have occurred in Asia. We are seeing that. Most folks who get infected have mild disease like most coughs colds. There are not real proven remedies to treat corona

Drama in the Toy Industry

"Joining me in studio today from 'em funds. Bill Barker, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. We're gonna talk are vs. We're gonna talk toys because we've got some legitimate drama in the toy industry. We're going to start with Dobie. I feel like almost any business. That's in the cloud business is doing well that's not a knock adobe in their management. But, you know, adobe second quarter revenue was up twenty five percent. Their guidance was a little weaker than I think some analysts were looking for. But that's not stopping the stock. It's up another four percent today. Yeah, it is continuing to do a great job growing compounding year-over-year. It's on a pretty good five year on, I would say the segments digital media was up twenty two percent digital experience thirty four percent publishing twelve percent. So all three of the major parts of the company growing at better or do significantly better than, you know, double digit range. Do you know historically, if nobody is an acquisitive company, it does seem like obviously, you've got behemoths out there like Microsoft and Amazon just a name to who are in the cloud business it, I mean you know, my joke at the top aside they're definitely some smaller players, and I don't know if part of what has fueled adobe for the past few years is. Being strategic with smaller acquisitions and, and just sort of bringing them into the fault. Yeah. It's enlarge part through acquisitions in two thousand eighteen which for those who can't do math was last year. You look confused for. Of the two of us in the room you're better at math than I am. Yes. That's fair. No last year. Yeah. One year difference magenta and Marquette auto. I don't know that I'm even pronouncing Marquette to marquee, to maybe were acquired, and so they've been well, integrated into the platform and are contributing to that twenty five percent annual growth, little harder to grow window at the size that adobe is at something approaching twenty five percent without making some good acquisitions, even in the, you know, given how much businesses moving to the cloud, even so that this that kind of growth needs needs some acquisitions in most cases, do you think that's why the guidance was maybe a little weaker than people were expecting just because there's only so much? You wanna telegraph what you're going to be doing when it comes to acquisitions, well, they have a history of being a pretty conservative with their guidance. So I think that as you can tell from the market's reaction today, basically. People are blowing that off. Nobody believes them. Yeah. That's nice. They're, they're giving some conservative guidance, and we know that given their history. And this is the kind of thing that you only, you know, chief over time is the belief by the market that, oh, these guys are going to do better than they're saying. Let's move onto winnebago. Third quarter reports seemed to be a little bit of a mixed bag, although the profit margins appear to be improving for winnebago. And typically, when we talk about the RV industry, more more often than not you. And I are talking about Thor industries, not. Not winnebago but went Bego seems to be doing a pretty nice job of late. Yeah. Winnebago, which is the name that people know best for arby's and is best known for the motorhomes portion of the business. And so the totals side of the business is larger for the industry than the motorhomes motor home is the, you know, the large vehicle bus, like structure where the housing unit is all part of the, the motor vehicle, and then the Togo's where you hit something onto the back of, of your vehicle and winnebago made a good acquisition. Couple years ago, grand design, which is a fast growing towell and winnebago really didn't have much going on prior to that in the total space. So as that part of the industry has been growing winnebago is now. And. Active participant in, in that growth and actually capturing market share in large part from Thor. So you've got sore, which is the largest RV maker, just made a major acquisition in Europe, which closed last quarter, and then you've got forest river, which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway those two are, are far larger than when a Bego, which has now grown to about ten percent of the market. And then they're few scattered players that are not especially meaningful beyond that. But when Bago also has done, what a lot of in players in the industry are doing which is diversifying into the marine segment. They quired Chris craft, which is probably known to too many as designer beautiful wooden boats that are sort of timeless and elegant, and that's a good thing to do is to have some diversification, because the RV industry are. Into a lot of trouble last year when dealers overstocked early in two thousand eighteen and a year later, they're still working down the overstocking. And so when obey goes numbers on their face are not great. But they are pointing to some brighter days ahead as everybody in the RV space has been doing for a while. The acquisition that Thorne made that you mentioned in Europe. Is is that a diversification play or do they or is there, some RV maker in your like I? In large part because of where I live, when I think of RV's I just think of, you know, RV's here in America. I don't necessarily think of Europe as necessarily big market, but I'm, I'm happy to be proven wrong on that. Well, they're, they're more in the smaller vehicles, and you see in the US there, you know, in many parts of Europe, smaller roads and not quite the car culture that we have, but they are a big camping culture. And so they're more sort of camper sized things. And yeah, there's a decent decent part of, of the market that you can capture there. It is diversification thing for Thor. And it's a good time to diversify given the, you know issues with the inventory for arby's here, but getting back to winnebago, they're pointing to, again, good growth in the TOA bowls from the grand design, and motorhomes. Itself lagged I think there were off sales or about thirty some percent year year which couple years ago that would have been disastrous for winnebago when they had not yet acquired a tow -able in an a marine unit. It's not. I mean for as well known as the winnebago brand is, this is not a big company. I think it's like one in a quarter billion in market cap, so but it's nice to see that. They're both diversifying their revenue stream and because of that starting to improve their financial picture. Yeah. They are unlike sore treating sort of reasonably close to their fifty two week high. I think not you know not not right at the fifty two week high, but they're not not a long ways off Thorpe still basically cut in half from from where it was about eighteen months ago. Quick shadow to sprout social for sporting today's show. What makes people love the brands you love connection.
