2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach
"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.
Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?
"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.

"timberwolves" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Convince Quinn in for J. R and you can always hit me up on Twitter. It's Vince Quinn. Um, let's talk about Really fascinating quote from Ricky Rubio here. And man. I mean, this is okay. So here's the deal. I mean, let me set the scene if you will, so Minnesota Timberwolves. No, not exactly the most ex inspiring, exciting team. To into right now. So okay. They beat the Pistons. Not very good. They beat the Jazz, okay? Then they played the Lakers. And their world ended. They got absolutely crushed by the Lakers. Then they played the Clippers and after losing 1 27 to 91 to the Lakers, they lose by an impressive 1 24 2 on Lee Won. Ho won. Against the Clippers. So improvement now, Ricky Rubio after those couple of games Well, he talked about the problems with the Timberwolves. We gotta learn. Uh, Concluded. A lot of kids were young, blah, blah, blah, decent dad. But once you step on the court and the plane for NBA team one on the last two games between we did close back. I'm there is no other wars supported on. Uh, we've got to get better. I think we didn't learn nothing from the game against Lakers. We came Tonight with the same mindset off. Just go up there and group. I don't know if he's because there is no pants because the situation we believe right now, but I can continue. We've gotta do something about it. I mean, that's pretty damning stuff, so couple of things there one The idea of fans and accountability. That's a big one. Because, yeah, if you're an NBA team You could take nights off. It happens. Think of Here's an interesting one last year at home. The Sixers were one of the best teams in the NBA amazing record at home. Unbelievable. They were God awful on the road. Maybe it's accountability. Maybe it's the idea of your home. Fans aren't in the road stadium, so you go out. Well, we'll take this night off its Atlanta, which is last year's Atlanta, not this year's Atlanta, which is kind of fun. So it's Atlanta last year. Like who cares? We'll just take the night off. If maybe we win. Maybe we don't. But who cares? So is the lack of fans in the building. How much does that affect accountability? How much does that change Things? Are we taking that for granted? Because I figured these guys would just play basically the same. You would expect a little more juice in it by having fans in big moments. That crowd cheer that kind of thing. But To not plays hard. And do that because you don't have fans to hold you accountable in person is an interesting thing, and we see that kind of stuff play out all the time. Right. That happens. Constantly. Think of somebody might see in person versus what you might see from that person on social media. When you don't have that direct in person accountability, things get a little bit different. So Maybe That's the case. Maybe we see that more in the MBA. Maybe we've seen that in the NFL in the MLB in this past season, and we just didn't realize it. But for him, the mentioned fans like that I was like, Oh, I hadn't thought about that. But maybe people have played sloppily because of that, So that's one interesting point from Ricky Rubio. But Here's The other thing, too is and this comes up from time to time, but it needs to be said. I'm thinking about Anthony Edwards here. Because you have a young guy in a franchise that really hasn't been very good, so for him to go to that team as the number one pick with all of the expectations that are on him. As a number one pick. You want to have a good culture to develop the guy you want to have opportunities for him to be the best player he could be. I mean, think about with the Timberwolves, one of the problems they had as they look to Karl Anthony towns and they looked at Wiggins and they said, We need to change something here. We need to toughen these guys up a little bit. Let's go get Jimmy Butler. Right. They wanted to alter the way the franchise was going to wanted to inject some attitude into their pillars of the franchise, and they add Jimmy Butler, and he's being them with third stringers in practice and begging to get out of town, so it didn't work. But they tried. And now Jimmy Butler's with the heat. Everything's worked out there, but This is the Timberwolves team that we're talking about. Now, Anthony Edwards is there and are they going to figure this thing out for that? You gotta have a good organization and having a rocky start like this for a team that generally has not been that good. Not a good place for Anthony Edwards. So sometimes it's not always the player. But it's the situation that they're in now. The other thing flip side of the coin. My God. I saw highlight yesterday of James Wiseman. He he blocks the shot. He gets up. Swats the shot. His teammate grabs it. He starts going down the floor. Wiseman is breaking down the floor over 7 ft. Tall. He's making a break. They give him the ball. He dribbles across the court coast to coast. James Wiseman. He gets the ball. He rips it up over a defender goes to the hoop dunks at home. It was like, Oh, my God, and you think about him as a number two pick. Going to the Warriors. And where would you rather be? You know, Would you rather be a number one pick in Minnesota or a number two pick in Golden State? Because you look at the cultures. You look at the backgrounds. You look at the track record..

"Whatever man, I actually am cool with the referees. Allowing these guys in the last couple of minutes to play I know some of you out there sticklers to the rules of defendants. Dan, the first good vantage. We'd good. No. I want the games to be a little more physical. And I'm okay with that. Now, if it's completely agree Disley, hacks them on the arm. That's different. But did he not let their grows follow-through? Okay. Fine, whatever. But the shot still got their, you know, give me a little step back action Derrick rose right that we can't block your shot. You know, he stepped right into it. And of course, Tyson Chandler with his length was able to kind of get out. They're smart enough to get out the way, though, just to make you know out there because he could have jumped into Derrick rose that would have been three shot. It was not body at all. It was all hand. But look that's the veteran savvy that a guy like that brings to the table. And he was the hero at the end. Is LeBron talked about At a veterans. veteran who the spirits allot able to pick up things very fast. You know to be able to get Tyson and to have that one two punch Valentine's those guys create extra opportunities for. Way d- rose shoot Navolato as we needed. Every last one off the reviles allowed us to to win a game in a season where we've sat there and have dissect it every play and look that's not to say we won't dissect every play here moving forward because we will. And they were things last night. I didn't necessarily love from Luke particularly down the stretch. The the lineups to me are still something that are bit mind boggling, but again, we're gonna stay on the positive tip for a second. Okay. The thing I took away from that game. And I'm curious to see what you guys thought about this. I wanna I wanna see if you're on the same page with me, the two numbers that stood out. The most to me forty three points in the second half for the Minnesota Timberwolves twenty two points in the fourth quarter for the Minnesota Timberwolves that to me. Those are numbers that are music to my ears because what have we been harping about? When it comes as Lakers team that their defense is absolutely atrocious. And for the first time. The entire season. I know it's only eleven games in. But for the first time I finally came away from game saying, all right? They they look competent on defence for change. So I know I've been harping on some stuff. But again, there's two conversations we've been trying to have here with you. There's a micro discussion which is the day to day. Whether it's a game reacting to the game reacting to the news of the day. Magic Johnson, you know, getting on Luke or whatever. And look that stuff not gonna go away. Okay. But the macro discussion was always just take a breath is gonna take a minute. Not. Everybody's Michael Thomson with this was going to be fifteen and five to start the season Ireland, and I particularly were very much on the ten and ten through twenty games, and you're good. And and they're going to probably be ten in ten look at the schedule moving forward here. They're gonna play Orlando twice. Orlando might be I know the wizard stink right now. But Orlando might be the. The worst team I've seen play NBA basketball this year. I honestly think that if you gave I don't actually honestly believe this. I'm lying to you. But if if they played Duke, they probably lose at least one out of ten, and that's generally, not the case NBA teams versus college, nor should it be. But the Orlando Magic are so trashy as a squad that I actually think that Duke might get one out of ten games against the Orlando Magic and the Lakers play them twice over the next couple of nights..

"timberwolves" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"But as at least flirted with an offer to the Minnesota Timberwolves that includes four first round picks, which basically is they feel as though they are Jimmy Butler away from contending there. One in. Five Mike dantonio says they've lost their swagger the season is not over. They are not left for dead right now. But if you look at the Western Conference in the NBA it gets late early in the NBA season because it's one thing if you're the one or two seed where you might not have these stiffest challenge in the conference in the playoffs. But the NBA playoffs are the antithesis of the MLB playoffs baseball. It comes and goes before you know, what the Red Sox go from playing the Yankees around one two World Series World Series champions in what feels like a blink of an eye. The NBA playoffs are two months. It's a grueling stretch for anybody that makes it far you got to be have to position yourself appropriately during the NBA regular season to make a deep run and they're one in five and they're looking up at not just the warriors. But you know, the always competitive Spurs, the nuggets the trailblazers teams that have been good the jazz who we think could be a legit factor in this conference. Not even dimension teams like the thunder in the Lakers who have also struggled out of the gates, but figure to be in the mix come April. Yeah. You know, you mentioned defense, and it's obvious side of it. And everybody says, well, they just need to get everybody together and find their rhythm. Because Carmelo Anthony is new Chris Paul had a suspension James Harden's injured, but Cornell, Anthony two of twelve from the floor in last night's loss one oh, four eighty five to the trailblazers James harden when he's out they've lost by a combined thirty nine points in their last two games. And then Chris Paul even though he did have those games that he lost his suspension. He's nine of thirty two in the games. He is playing in. So you know, to me it feels like maybe if you put all those piles of poop together, they all fixed each other. But that's a lot to ask for like. It's a lot to say it's just about get them all together and get a rhythm because defensively those problems are not being fixed by getting everyone on the court together. And then offensively they shot thirty two percent from the floor last night. Yeah. So here's what I would say is that. I don't have concerns that the rockets can't find a rhythm. They're going to be very very good. And they're going to find the rhythm. We're gonna find their swagger back. My point about the standings is notable because like last year at the end of the NBA season. There was this teeny tiny sliver of a margin between the third seed and the eight see there was legitimately competition for six spots in the playoff up until the final three days of the conference so at but like the in relative terms, you know, the rockets and the warriors had it easier than other teams where like the trailblazers with a thirty two got swept in the first rattling the depth of the west makes it such that you really don't have the opportunity to falter in the way that the rockets have faltered right now unless you're going to have a blitz of the rest of the regular season, which they showed us last year. They can have a lot of this is small sample size confusion for us right now. I'm not saying the rockets aren't going to be competitive in very good. When push comes to shove. But it's a bit disconcerting when you look at the bigger. Picture because we know that the west is going to be really good top to bottom in the difference. Be in the third and the second or the second in the fifth seed community world of difference. Yeah. Absolutely, right, sir. Spain and field Yates, it's ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz on the ESPN app and siriusxm channel eighty as. Well, you know, part of that to me is trying to figure out is this intangibles..
"timberwolves" Discussed on Full Court Press
"Okay. The Timberwolves have had a busy schedule to start the season not ideal for them given that what Jimmy Butler practice two maybe three times with him before the season started. So they lost opening night in San Antonio played. Well, lost by four points. So win over Cleveland. Cleveland is terrible. Lost a Dallas Dallas is a team playing. Maybe as up and down as any team in the league. A nice one into the Anna definitely their best offensive performance of the year by far in the three point loss in Toronto. Toronto might be planning better than anyone in the league to this point. And then they got smoked by the box sewer playing really really, well, maybe the only Toronto's playing better than to walk at this point so two and four to start the season not the record. They would've wanted but six games, and I think a ten ten days, maybe maybe eleven days on one hundred percent. Sure. But busy schedule the first thing. I was looking for is what how's it chemistry? Look and their spirit looks good. They're happy. They look engaged with one. Another Carl towns is definitely struggling with officiating changes, and they played a lot more gory. Gory djing than they would have preferred Jimmy's playing well Teague is playing well. But when I watch his team play, Greg their best three point cheaters are who there were only two last year. Teague and towns dead last in three points outs. They add Anthony taller, and they're still not getting any shuts up from the three point line. And in these close games. It really does come down to that very specific thing. It's just not that they're not getting attempts. But they're not running anything schematically to create looks from the three point line. And when you said last year, and we'll stick by towns and teach about the everything seven three point tents game. That's not weird anymore. I mean, we have guys averaging ten a game. The better shooters the league the higher volume players in the league when taller is in the game. They should be running specific sets him weakside three point looks. He's in the Ducker spot too often playing closer to the rim than away from the rim. And so you see a defense at times they like Cleveland give up too many points. Even in that win Dallas put up one hundred forty and regulation on them that shouldn't happen. So there's still at times fundamental issues on defense there were twenty years. And if it's a last year, but like I saw in the game they can play very good defense. But even when they play good defense games too close or they lose, and it's more of the same. I don't want to spend time on it. Because we talked about all ask year. Just generally just the formula is broken. They've added more three points users, and they still can't get three point shots up. And I'm sorry. But. Derrick rose is just still doing too much one on one attack on the court, and he's not attacking to create a class the defense. And that kick it to an open shooter butlers never been a guy who embraced the three point line. So I still think the formula is obsolete outdated. It's I don't know. It seems everybody. Everybody's different types of coach. I mean, I mean, it's like beating. Just beating the same drum over and over again shot shot distribution. Yes, shortage distribution is the result is not something. You intentionally want to define going into a game. But your offense should be creating the right shots for the right players and the right spaces and things like that..

"Thanks, Jason Witten coming on. Thanks again, STAN Van Gundy popping off from LA just a few minutes earlier, but let's get back to the phones that it eight say ESPN JP if you're out there, feel free to call back so I can get you back on buddy. Sorry. I had to cut short because of STAN Van Gundy. Let's go to j. You'll live Stephen. They talk to me. I was going on even going right. Talk to me. How's everything. So I wanted to ask you a couple of questions skeeving and I don't mean to be funny anything like that, but it's Derrick rose on the Minnesota Timberwolves. I don't think so. Not anymore. I haven't. I haven't looked though who the hell knows where Derrick rose is these days. But as of right now, I know he was on on the team at the end of the season fall. I know he might still be on there. I haven't even checked because one of my games may be is what Butler went through and Chicago with having to play. You know, a second fiddle to a star and for that star to say, teams like I'm not going to injure myself. I have my kids to take care of things like that for forget for Butler to put the team on his back the way he did when world was injured yet. And I don't I know know. if I remember correctly. I do believe rose is still there. I do believe that rose is still there in Minnesota plan under typical. So it's Taj Gibson, obviously, the all all those two amd Butler all played on the typical inch icago so it's it's, it's kind of it's kind of weird. What's going on right now? No, that's my whole point. Because from what I understand, what will make cats any different than one side for which brought up earlier today I go. That was the whole point of me call on the show, but I just wanted to add a little bit more tools because from what I heard last year wasn't Whiteside having problems about, you know him showing up to a sewing up to the facility late and isn't he was who would who showing up to the facility late. Oh, isn't it? Isn't his name was how I'm watching whites up? No, no, no, listen, man. They they had a whole bunch of problems with Pat Riley had to sit down and talk to him. I mean, you had guys. They literally had to talk to John Whiteside last year about quitting on the team. He is viewed as somebody that got his money and stopped giving a damn literally, at least at one point last season and the Miami Heat were incredibly down on him. Hopefully, he's made immense to try and change that moving forward. But he is a guide at a rally at sit down and talk to him, man, paralyzed city, cultural, even why would you want to go there even because if you remember, I, I don't even think they played him, but you gotta make it to the playoff where you gotta remember, they got a few rough riders on there. They got a lot of guts, they defend. They play hard as they haven't. Gundy pointed out. Very few coaches in the business are is excellent as Eric's pollster at playing to your strengths and not only that he's tight with the way he's cool with de way. Rather they were in Chicago together. You gotta believe that if he wants to go to Miami, that's something that d. way clearly supports them, what have you. So all of those things to be considered and by the way, what is there to about south beach? Could you come up with something? I can't. I can't. I can't. I'll tell you that right now. I can't do. You relate. Thanks for taking my call every for you. Let me go. Can I? Can I get a five minute rant on my Oakland Raiders it how many five second off seconds. Go ahead. Mark Davis. I understand you the owner, John grooten understand you. The coach will come on. We gotta get it together. 'cause del Rio was a step away. Now I feel like our squad is Kim steps away. Now, Kim steps away and you end he has that guy hundred million. You know, you know. You know, don't go into the bottom line is Jay, the job that Jon Gruden has done thus far Jack del Rio could have done that for about ninety five million less doc, right? Byline. Take it easy, man..
"timberwolves" Discussed on Jalen and Jacoby
"Early in the summer early in the summer June eighteenth, I just moved to New York City and here in this room in this program, we were talking about the tension in the locker room of the Minnesota Timberwolves, particularly between Collins towns and Jimmy Butler. Well, that tension has not resolved itself over the summer and much like the Steelers seems like every single day there's an update on what's going on with the timber wolves. They're supposed to be a media on Monday between Jimmy Butler and the Timberwolves brass Jimmy Beller tweeted that was actually going to be on Tuesday. Then there were report that the meeting that was going to be in Minnesota. This is the latest is actually now going to be in Los Angeles, the old I'm not coming to you. You come to me for the meeting. What does this latest update about the meeting location tell you about the situation in Minnesota furthers the point that I was alluding to on this program was that there clearly has become a divide between Tom Bill who when you give them fifty million dollars to be the leader of the franchise in its face. Also the head coach and Jimmy Butler who we coast in Chicago, who's a veteran has been around the block that wants to find ways to either had on the back or kicking the, but his young teammates in Karl Anthony towns who has superstar potential. Oh yeah. And Andrew Wiggins who's shown to be a really productive player with the max contract. And so that push and pull has played out in locker room. It is played out in media. It came to a distinct. Got a level of definition when you saw how they performed against the rocket up, especially cappella on towns. I remember that in car, Carl continued to drift and drift, and people were wondering, are they using a right or is does he not want Capella? Just like all of a sudden, the lockdown defender and like, wow, we're paying weakens how much he's doing this level of productivity. There. Jimmy comes out, say, I need these to play harder on these guys play defense. I need all of these things and you're sending publicly and then cars Anytown aren't Booker. I guess I could come the FINA jersey that rockets timber wolves series that people will forget so early in the playoffs and didn't last that long that will leave a bad taste in your mouth. You wear a timber wolves uniform all summer long, which I think release some of these reports some of this tension. And so now you fast forward to Jimmy and the organization meeting, it's really to clear the air for player to still under contract for another year could sign an extension, but. Didn't Carlton tiles could have signed an extension, but didn't, and you don't wanna lose Jimi at the end of the year for no return compensation. So if you're him this, the only chance I have leverage, y'all come to me. If I'll tell him, I look at my phone and I'm like, oh, jeez, age picked us up..
