"If anybody joined me, bone bruise, maybe. I see in the chat, people looking for an update. We don't have one other than what the Celtics said, scans, scans tomorrow, who don't said he's an a fair amount of pain. They don't know exactly what happened. It's his left knee. He's out for tomorrow. He's getting scans in Boston, not traveling to Toronto. Horford also not traveling to Toronto, so then we'll see. And whatever happens happens. And George, I won't overreact if we find out rob is hurt tomorrow. I will react properly. Appropriately. Appropriately. If we find out he's out for a long period of time tomorrow, that's no longer an overreaction, okay? We can call it an overreaction now if he ends up being fine and playing on Wednesday. And that's fine. Yes. How about this? My first apology cam ever comes if rob plays on Wednesday. I'll apologize for that. I will apologize for getting you all worried. That's what I will apologize for. That's a fair apology. What about Friday? What if he plays Friday? I think that's still apology. We'll play the game by game. Again I think Friday's apology camera at the base I'm not saying I think he's hurt. I don't like what he may said. He may worry me. And then I worried everyone else. I don't like what he may say at all. I wish he said something different. But as charon said, he's honest. You know? Take it when we can't get it. Exactly. No, it's true. I mean, after what we went through with like a year and a half's worth of Kevin Garnett's not even not even really hurt and like look over there and like these aren't the droids you're looking for and all of this misdirection. Yeah, we'll take it. So, yeah. Yeah, that's why I'm probably fine. I'm scarred from those years of the KG injuries, news that we didn't never knew what to believe. Exactly. So there it is. Hey, Celtics are the one seat tonight, folks, there's a reason to feel good about that and fingers crossed. Prayers up as we say hashtag teas and peas to rob Williams and tomorrow, we will see we have some more answers, but tonight, the Celtics go to bed as the top seed in the Eastern Conference, which is drinking drinks are on me. None of us thought we were going to be saying this season. So that's a pretty cool thing. Drinks are on me if rob is back on Wednesday, all right? Thanks, Ron you. We're going to do a Google. We'll do a garden report meet up strictly so that you can buy everybody drinks for.

"You are here. Yeah. Yeah. John control in the comments post one of him being called the hero. That was fine. Yeah. I mean, what else is there to say? It was a great I actually think they did play pretty well tonight. I mean, I know John, you weren't super impressed, but I no, no, no, I'm not saying not impressed. I'm saying like, they had 11 charts, like if they played a clean game, they would have won this thing by 50. I mean, that's how I mean like they were sloppy with the ball and they were like, they looked like they were, again, it was another one of those games where they looked like they were playing with their food, you know? Like, they could have, if they really locked it in, could have won by a zillion, you know? But it's like they played great. They shot 60%. I mean, obviously they did that, you know? Yeah. I think it's just hard to keep that. If you go up 25 points in the second quarter or whatever it is, it's like, it's hard to win by 50. You know, it's hard to keep that same foot on the gas for the stretch of time, but you're right. I mean, there were points where they probably saw that they were up 30 and took a couple, maybe let the Timberwolves get a couple easy ones, but thank you, George, appreciate that. Overall, I thought that again, they're led by Tatum and brown. Those guys keep playing the way they are. I mean, another 30 plus point performance from those two guys. What else can you say? I mean, Tatum is firmly in that top 5 MVP category now. And you should be. You should be. Yeah. He should be. And I think we all know that he's not going to win it, but again, it goes back to the E may thing. The fact that he's getting the consideration, the fact that he's going to get his name up there and he's going to get some publicity and votes from it. That's a great thing, especially when you consider how this season started. Pertaining to get that because these guys do care about that. And I'm not saying it's a bad thing. They should care about that. Tatum was super bummed that he didn't get the recognition that he felt he deserved last year. And this year, it feels like he is going to get it. And I think that's going to, that's going to be good. That's going to be big for him. And it was only going to it's only going to be a good thing. This is a good, this is a good point someone made like the Tatum stuff is hard to unsee the beginning of the year because he wasn't just he wasn't just erratic. He actually had 15 or so awful games. Shooting games. Awful, awful games where the effort and the shooting would translate to bad defense. And again, that was part of the problem. You weren't the game wasn't flowing through the stars because they were kind of getting down on their own performances. You know, and they weren't playing well, and it wasn't translating over to the defensive side. They weren't shooting well. And just it was just endemic. Everybody kind of caught a piece of it. And it just, they couldn't recover from it. And especially late in games when those guys were pressing and trying to do too much. And it just wasn't working. So that stuff happened. Like if you picked up the rest of the scene right now, if you just and again, Sharon always talks about the recency bias..

"Afraid of them by any stretch of the imagination, but they're the team that gives that I know going in will probably give us the most competition and be the biggest threat to us getting to the NBA Finals. Yeah. Because I am worried about Brooklyn. I mean, I just don't want to see them right out the gate. I would much rather see them a round or two into the playoffs. But right out the gate now. You want to ease your way into it and just kind of build up the caliber opponent. And you talk about playing it probably a top two or three seat type team in the first round of the playoffs. And if you're the boss itself, you don't need that. You don't want that problems. I think it wouldn't have serious, but it'll be harder than it should be. That's why. You don't want those problems at all. No. You know what else I'm bummed about? Let's go best case scenario. Rob misses a couple of games. They slow how he comes back. He's losing the defensive play. The all defensive and the defensive player of the year momentum, which is a bummer because momentum for all Celtics right now is that if you're into this kind of stuff right now, jaylen Brown does a postgame interview with forsberg who I didn't know they let go to games, but apparently he went to one tonight and he was there. He was doing the sideline stuff. Jalen Brown, what does he say? He goes, Tatum MVP, email coach of the year, Marcus and rob, first team all defense. Everybody is pushing for this now. You we're the best team in the east now. We're killing people. It's time to start looking at the people here who are getting it done and give us our props. And so there was a lot of momentum, I feel for rob, you know, you just had games against Gobert. You had this game against cat or cat didn't do anything. I know rob didn't match up entirely against him. But you're just seeing what he's doing against other top competition on large, you know, on a large stage and watching the Celtics just destroy people and rob just flying around doing everything..

"It's never done for it to be the one seat, but that Brooklyn team is just, they're not your typical 8 seed, right? Are 7 seed, whatever they are. They're much theoretically should be much better than that. So that's an interesting one there. But yeah, that's your playoff picture right now. And the Celtic, listen, nobody wants to play the Celtics. Crazy, crazy as it sounds. No team wants to play the Celtics. The way they play defense right now, who is looking forward to that matchup. Nobody, nobody, if they can continue the intensity on the defensive end. And like you said, they didn't even play that well tonight. And they still just cruise to victory. I mean, they just, they just rip your heart out. You know, it's not even like it's not even like a close hard fought game. She's like, yeah, we're going to win by 20. And we're going to go up by 20 and second quarter, and we're just going to keep it that way. It's crazy. It's I can't figure it out. I just can't, it's just, and what's funny is the same feeling you had watching this team in the beginning of the season, which is like gross, can't wait for them to blow it. This is just, here they go again. All of this awful stuff and it just, you know, it just felt like Groundhog Day. Now it's completely. It's Groundhog Day, but a different time. I'm stunned when they're in a game that's less than 20 at this point. Like, I'm stunned. And what's amazing is too, is like, even when they do, there'd be an old version of the Celtics that get a double digit lead, and you know the other team's coming back and possibly winning. Now, every time they do this, they get up 20 something. They let a team creep back. Minnesota hit all those threes. He didn't even call a timeout this time. He was like figure it out. And they did, and then they're back up 24 and it's ball game. I mean, the arms length the whole time. But between Utah and Minnesota, they never let these guys off the mat. As soon as they got the lead, with Utah, they did it in like ten seconds. Early in the first. In this, in the second quarter, they raced out to the lead, and that's it. They just kept them there the whole time. Unbelievable. It's unbelievable. It is. And again, it's just hard to, it's hard to imagine being in this position. And granted the players, I'm sure they are sure they believe in themselves in that in that sense. But I can't find anyone who truly thought that this would be a situation that they would be in. I mean, even anybody who was up on the team or not as down on the team as others were, I don't think anyone thought they would be talking about Eastern Conference, you know, a number one seed going down the stretch here. So it truly is something maybe they'll finish in the one seat, maybe they won't, but either way, the fact that they're as of today, have the one seed, it's baffling. But here we are. What's up, Sharon? What's up, guys? How you doing? We are perplexed. We're baffled. We're honestly like, we're embarrassed to blame this. We're embarrassed for how the Celtics are treating people. Like, it's disrespectful. They're being disrespectful right now. Like, the alley..

What was that going to postseason? This is a fun team. It has Anthony Edwards on the team. All right, got D'angelo Russell somehow was playing great minutes playing like he did with the net. You got Carl Anthony towns coming into it so it's a fun team to watch. And then talk about them. Let's go. Let's go. We're currently talking. You've already dragged me into it. Let's do it. Did you know that princess from Minnesota? I did know the princess from the soda, yeah. What's your favorite person in the water? What's your favorite print song? I have a lot of favorite prince songs, but I would have to say my favorite prince song is, I think it's called 7. Is that what it's called? For this reason, I had a college teammate from Nigeria, his name was tunji, I would Joby. Really, really good player in the North Atlantic conference America east. Him and him and Malik rose used to go at it. I was a dreadful and tuned G's favorite song was 7, and so he played it before every game. It would just be blasting. And so I developed an appreciation for it. And so that's my favorite print song. And that is our Minnesota Timberwolves analysis, man. There we go, right? That's what we got. I mean, I think they're one of those teams, though, that will like, I think they're under the radar right now. And I think when they go into the plan and they beat a team and they get into the playoffs, I think then we'll be like, oh, what's up with the, I think they're gonna be a story. I think they're fun. They have the personalities to be a really fun story. You know, you talk about Anthony Edwards, who was one of my favorite players to watch in the league. Last time I watched him play score like 40 in San Francisco. And I got Carl and he towns who was finally coming into his home. I think we'll be talking about them. I'm trying to get on the talking Timberwolves bandwagon. So when they do become of age, you're gonna be like, oh, yeah, we talked about them a long time ago. That's what I'm trying to do, roger. That's how we do this in this podcast. And in fairness to the Timberwolves. I mean, there were 11 games above 500. They've won 9 out of their last ten. They're playing a really good basketball. And so, you know, it's just a personal thing. They're not my favorite team to watch, but I can recognize a good team. And you know, probably a team that you wouldn't want to see. You know, probably with that with that ability to score the ball and some of those pieces, you know, probably a team to be a thorn in the side. You ain't beating nobody, but you know, a little tough first round test. That's a very astute out. Nobody in the first round of them didn't play out. All right, now switching gears a bit of news that literally just came down to pike. Steph Curry has been diagnosed with spring ligaments in his foot. Did you see the play raw? Absolutely. So I saw it when I got back to the room. And you know, it's basically Marcus smart. Dives for a loose ball goes into Steph's legs to do it, it looked like it Steve Kerr was fucking pissed. And honestly, rightfully so, I think so? No, I knew this is where you pissed about. This is why. This is why I do this subject was gonna be a new one. I knew it too. As soon as you put your mouth, I knew what you were gonna say. I know what we're gonna do. Roger, go ahead, let's do it. No, what happened? From your vantage, you tell me, let's go. Let you go first before I eviscerate your opinion on this. Clearly. You.

He's not doing any better. Yeah. We're gonna try to pick each other up. We're gonna hurt. Thanks. Thanks to the new CDC guidelines, Jimmy's officially off the shelf. He's 5 days out. As of tomorrow, as of tomorrow. But I might milk it for another day or two. Yeah. Just to be safe. I'm COVID negative, but I'm pretty banged up with a cold right now. So here we are. Wait a second. Are you telling me the Celtics are pretty banged? I don't have unexpected. Really? Jumps in too. Oh, he's. Yeah, you know what? He had to come on. He had to come on because sharad loves to say the timber puppies. When talking to him. He's been talking about the Timberwolves. But this was a new level of timber. This is like the omegas of the wolfpack of the timberwolf timber pup pack. No. All grouped together. No. Yes. This team still sucks, Jimmy. Amber pups still suck. Jimmy said, would you? What do I mean? They're even worse. The level of substitute that the Celtic sunk to yes, that's right. Suck the tube will be a word tonight damn it. The level of substitute that the Celtics play was pathetic. There's no way this timber pup team should have won this game. No, agree. Pups, cadaver liars. We got them all. We got all the old ones. I mean, half of these timber pups, like these guys are just happy to get playing time tonight. They weren't even expecting them. But you know what, Jimmy? This is what happens when you play a team full attendee contract guys who are thirsty versus guaranteed deals who frankly, this game is not gonna do a damn thing to their bank account. It's not gonna do a damn thing to their planter. It's not gonna do a damn thing to anything other than make their record crappy than it already is.

"Of the decision making process that was happening and then finally this last week. It came to the organization's attention that gerson rodas had what was deemed to be an inappropriate relationship with a female member of the timber. Wolves staff both that member and gerson rosas are married and they had this relationship that was making people on staff increasingly uncomfortable. And when the details surrounding a lot of that relationship came really to the forefront timmer was ownership group that was already concerned with some of the complaints that they were hearing that prompted them to really feel like they had to act.

"Are seven and twenty four and and it was just the a recipe for disaster for rubio because he's always been kind of player who feeds off of other players like he needs other stars around him so that That he can set them up. And when karl anthony towns is out for as long as he was when daniel russell was out like there just wasn't the safety valve. There wasn't the players. Take the attention away from rubio and so it was a lot easier to focus on him and then he he shot it poorly. He was turning the ball over it. Just all these things that you don't normally see from him so I think you saw him start to prove as the season got going and got into the second half and he he add some moments but This offseason is going to be huge for him because he will have a full summer to go through. Its entire program. He will be able to come into next camp in great shape and ready to go. And i think he'll be motivated because he'll be in the last year of his deal on whether it's with the timberwolves are another team. He will you know he'll be ready to kind of show that he still is worthy of another contract The the decision that the wolves have to make is. He's really like the veteran leader on the team. I mean you have towns and russell who are going to be going into their seventh years so they should be ready but but rubio is kind of the conscience in the locker room Towns loves him. Anthony edwards just thinks the world of him and so the wolves will have to kind of determine. Do they want a rookie around as much for what he can do for these young guys as for what he can do on the core or do they look to move him and and and see if they can get more shooting see if they can get more defense around the kind of their core..

"Gotta find an edge to him and it doesn't mean he's got to be a mean guy or or anything like that but he has not played with any kind of toughness or any kind of You know any kind of force and so when you have that. I think other players feed off of that in incense that and and know that you know That he's not going to be one. That's playing with any confidence or anything like that. So he's got to find a way to kind of work on the mental part of the game and the confidence and the and the mental toughness part and and and kind of really assert be able to assert himself and make defenses feel him make opposing offensive player garden. Feel him in. That just hasn't been the case so far as so tough with that too because that's the kind of thing that I mean. I think we've really improved on trying to project that stuff in the nba. But also like you just don't know what somebody's confidence going to be like when they get they're going from being the best on the court almost any nights of maybe being the twelfth thirteenth best player. Like that's as a big change. That i think we kind under underrate. Sometimes it's hard to like. I mean being aggressive on gordon's important but like it's such a double edged sword pocket about it too But yeah i mean i. I'm really hopeful for him. Like we've seen guiseley. It's a little bit different like milestones. Had some of that early on in his career would wasn't you really improve. Being more force wonders assertive on on the court. Now like finding that. It's it's it's not easy Toes all really interesting and i. I'm curious to see how How chris ventures able to try and work him in next year and maybe find a role for him That's that's that he's able to kind of carve out but remains to be seen on that brochure But i mean looking at it a little bit more of a positive aspect with With anthony edwards I mean what can you say about their words. That has said he's awesome. And like i. I would imagine you just person getting talk to them on a regular basis. Gotta be pretty fun Obviously journalistic side like i so i understand that as well like you know you're talking these guys can through job but like also there's nothing more fun for me than on On on weeknights. Or just adding night nightline walzer playing if i can see like the zoom meeting going on is fantastic Just the poll character and it was really cool seeing the way that it felt like i mean based on my perspective and reading some stuff to it. Seems like he's really taking on over leadership role with the wolves I mean what. Does that been. Like witnessing because i think there are a lot of questions about what that would be like for him whether it was warranted or not. Can we ought to georgia. So it's been really awesome to see him develop in that way so far with the wolves. Yeah i like it. He made a a long and tough season enjoyable in some ways because like he really has an authenticity about him like he speaks his mind. He says what he believes and some of. It's really funny. Some of it is really really intelligent. And like when he when he kind of dissect the game like you can tell that he really thinks the game and he's not just this incredibly gifted physical guy who just goes out there in uses it. Strengthen is and is vertical and his and his speed and quickness to overwhelm opponents. You can see like in some of his answers that there's a pathway to him getting to a point where he's just thinking people and.

"Their identity is completely about gershwin. Roses the one team in a league where it's like that where the normal thing is is the gm gives you like the roster that looks like it should play one way. But it's the coach's job to execute it well rosas has so specifically given a roster that can only play one way that it forms their identity so this to me this is the gerson rodas identity and not the ryan saunders identity. Because i think what we saw in that last game was the wakened ryan likes to play is like that like or by at least he looks more comfortable coaching a team. That was much more. Half court sets horns sets setting high screen roles. It's not just four or five guys out on the perimeter like it's weird. It's just weird and it's very different than memphis. I vic necessarily suggesting they copy the memphis State more than they need to find something they can fall back on bugging it out. We don't like memphis. They drafted off high q. High intangibles plans. They don't really care about athleticism's why brandon clocks us. Why desmond baynes slits. That's why exurbia. Tillman slip us three hard. I could have been drafted by the wolves could've been drafted by the abbots could have been drafted by the world's who their starting point guard ties. Jones was on the woods. Walston match restrictive is he african offer and then in the backup backup. Backup center is jiang who is a flagler. Do but q and him away. it's it's literally knocks. The fame of roles to build is the way men to build. Set a question. What their ceiling is this coal but the floor. The floor is gray with flurries. A thirty five win team every year. When you've got guys like john. Jay our new developing that goes up every year but with us if there's a high variance between the ceiling and the floor and when you see the floor all the time. I think what roses would say. Is i have no interest in having a team that has a thirty five win floor. That is a zero interest to him. And what and what. He's building even though for some of us basketball long to like a man. This is fun if even without our best player. Find a way to be kawai or something like that. Like it's just memphis is the linear thing and minnesota's hoping to do the exponential thing and i think it's kinda that simple that's why so ugly at the moment know it's always gonna be this ball and let's hope snow is going to be this way but let's talk though. I mean even just thinking about that. I mean what teams are able to just kind of make that kind of jump like that when you have very few veteran players on the roster. You have a tony. Young guys I don't know like that's a really tough jump to make if you're expecting like At some point you have to have guys who are veterans on the roster who are contributing to winning right away. Right like i i mean. That's that's obviously not a definite thing. But i i'm trying to rack my brain thinks so they don't think so. I mean what they're trying to do is combine the process of the philadelphia. Seventy sixers and and how they bill took very young team with talent that could explode together with the houston model which was weighed around with round until a until the guy is there that he comes of star who becomes available you know on the on the market and you know trade..

"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..

"And that's just talk about a drop off. He rookie year to bench player on the Pacers. Anyways, not pay in general. But then the final game of the night. We have the seventy Sixers birches the Minnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler against his former team and seventy Sixers show why they are one of the best teams in the east as they handled. They destroyed they thinking of other answered other adjective here to the Minnesota Timberwolves one forty nine one. Oh, seven and m bead kind of and bead. We'll see Lou NBA stats. I where we talk about what he did after there's maybe thirty one points and thirteen rebounds, absolute great performance. Ben Simmons another good for. I am twenty points eleven rebounds Jimmy Butler against his former team nineteen point three rounds. Forces pretty decent night for him Benson's almost had trouble dealt with nine assists. So close from that triple-double himself, but Embiid after the game kind of tweeted something that was what we kids. Call a troll to the Minnesota Timberwolves as he was saying that he was honored to be part of a third string parts part of the third stringers and get a win against real MBA starters. Hashtag the process. Embiid is like people, call them the troll king really hard tonight that. Because he's really good at trolling. You should be on. Our Brady's troll.

I mean, you look right underneath the the team the team with the above fight last team above five hundred in the east is the Boston Celtics in the fifth seed with twenty five eighteen and they've lost three straight. The other seeded team six team after the Celtics are the heat at five hundred than the nets game under five hundred and the Hornets three games under five hundred so really shows the differences in strength of schedule when you look at the Eastern Conference versus the Western Conference. But again, not saying anything from this. Any Sixers still a great team MP's on rampage Jimmy boys playing pretty well. Ben Simmons turn a light it up teams looking good. And honestly, it's ion see there's a lot of opportunities to these teams to make it to the commerce trials. I know I said the bucks, I've the bucks going to the conference finals, and I still Sam by that. But it would not surprise me the Pacers in the finals the Sixers in the finals of obviously, not the raptors. But the top four teams in the NBA each one of them geared the finals. Sixers Pacers bucks. Raptors I totally see it happening. And we're gonna take a break down. I think that's all about having about yesterday when we get back.
