"And Jeff Goodman podcast. NBA, some college, a little bit of everything. You know what can I say, but it wasn't going to happen here with him. I was okay with it because it wasn't about talent I didn't think. All right, let's get right to it. All right, welcome into another episode of the Ryan and Goodman podcast. I'm Jeff Goodman. He's bob Ryan and we're joined by, you know, you try to be objective, bob when you do this job, right? You try. But some sometimes you just can't be objective. And that's how I am with TJ McConnell. Absolutely. That's how I am. I'll admit it. You know, we're both Arizona wildcats. One did a little bit more to help the Arizona program than the other. But, you know, listen, I'll go back to maybe my favorite story involving TJ McConnell bob. And he had graduated from Arizona. And I don't know if he even remembers this. But he graduated and he called me maybe I don't know two weeks after TJ. I don't know if you remember this at all, and you asked me. You said, hey, do you think I can play in the league? Do you think I can play the league? And I said, hell yeah. Like, at the time, Matthew Dellavedova was playing like 30 minutes for Cleveland in the playoffs. And I said that to you. I said, listen, you're not the same player, we know that. But absolutely you can play in the league because you're an elite defender. Your toughest shit and you're gonna get better shooting the basketball. And now TJ McConnell, you are gonna go into year 7 in the NBA now? That is correct. Yeah. And the best part is, the first game TJ played bob was where? In the garden in Boston. Yeah. It did not go well. I'll tell you that much, though. But you know what? I don't know if it mattered. You were so happy. When I walked into the locker room, the smile on your face that you're on an NBA team, you know, playing for an MBA team that day was like, I don't think it mattered to you, whether you play well or not. You were on a team. It's a hell of a story, TJ. It's a hell of a story and again, I'm not objective. I'm not afraid to say that. You know what I think of you as a person, you know what I think of you is how hard you've worked and you just got to get paid now. You got to get paid. Yeah. I mean, it's kind of just a waiting game right now. Honestly, just trying to work out and spend some much needed time with my 5 month old son and my wife, you know, the seasons of grind.

"You're not really in the market so to speak. So I mean that's that's not your neighborhood. You know your neighborhood. Well how do you feel about Rudy Gay many miles left on that on that car on that web? I hate these guys that are three and four years past the point that they'd have any sort of relevance or importance and Rudy Gay's about that either. I gotta come off the bench, we're talking about these I think with a Celtic signing, a an everyday starter more of a name and a player. He's a name is more than able to play. That's the problem and that's the only way I'm like maybe get a good season. He's averaging eleven or twelve points for you but I just wish you could shoot about forty percent from three, you know, he's a little blue, can we? Let's let me quickly read through Thursday. Let me, let me catch up a couple of people here. Just a few things. We catch his breath. No, no, there's a bunch that's happened. We're just going to catch people up here. TJ McConnell guy that was you know, mentioned as a sort of type of player that the Celtics might be interested in bringing in because, you know, they need a point guard. He is off the board. Going back to Indiana Olynyk three years, thirty seven to Detroit. The Celtics were maybe hoping to fit him. In fact that Emily at about nine 5, obviously he got more than that. So then again, this is a, this is what shift costs. You know, I think they're hoping to get Olynyk in for 1:00 and 9.5. And he's like, I got three and thirty seven. Thanks months later. So he's gone Jared, Allen obviously not somebody to the Celtics, but he got paid 1 year after being dealt here 5 and 104 gallon Rock, Daniel theis, multi-year deal. I'm hearing three, you know, of hearing. But I mean just what we're seeing right here is three three years with with the Rockets. So that's something for them might find life. Don't let them suck. Sure, you go, Mike Conley, 33. And 68. That's another one that kind of dropped here and then Tim Hardaway. Jr. Sticks around. He was a guy who they talked about possibly having to move out of dog. He's there he's hanging around. So there's just some of the ones to drop right out of the gate and additional Lonzo, which was the first kind of big, big news here and again 6:00. So, you know, you can pick up the phone, at 6, you make your offers people except just like that their official. That's how it works, right? Yeah. So that's how they do.

All right. That was a a great interview with TJ McConnell. Like I said, Bob one of my favorite God. Because I can see why. Yeah, just like a true professional. He actually didn't let loose as much as he does. I think TJ's always the type of guy that doesn't want to offend anybody. You can tell that's just not him but he does. Have I forgot to ask him about it. What he uses in his hair. We have plenty of other stuff that we can. We can talk to TJ about next time, but let me get to the playoffs a little bit here. And again, this this Phoenix Clipper series, TJ feels like you can't count the Clippers out because they've come back from down to. I just feel like I've done this. This Phoenix team right now has multiple weapons. They're getting one back in Chris, Paul, that they've already shown. They can win without and campaign has been awesome. This year's, I mean, he was in China last year story. I I'm watching them going, what's going on here? How can this? I mean, he's making it look easy. He's making like a natural birth.

Plus making threes oh my God who gets their career high in playoffs in life, you know, after the career that he went through that laundry list of teams now and yeah there. But I'm going to just not put my hand on the stove yet because I want to give sufficient respect to the Clippers have proven, what they can do. But how many times can you do that? Yes, that and also I got to give credit to an old friend of mine alien boy shot, Santa Sacramento, who before the series started saying, down the street signs are going to win because the Clippers cannot handle DeAndre ayton. The can't he sees me correct? Well that's that's the problem. I mean you look at the Clippers team and I know you know, you seem to Jackson's been great in the playoffs and Terrence man stepped up..

"Tj warren got. Hurt the other day right. So he's yeah. He's he's out indefinitely with a stress fracture. So that's that's a blow. That's rough because tj was dj. Was giving us the business to like in the space games. Like i think people who weren't familiar with tj warren's body of work In the bubble got a you know a first front row seats to him him. The celtics games in. I don't know. I think they're gonna be. They're gonna be a tough out. You know like. I think that You know. I think they get a little bit more You know some some scoring firepower off the bench I think they're going to be. They're going to be a tough out. I'm honestly say what you want about. The pacers early season schedule. I would not be shocked to see them. pretty far. Celtics the standings come in the year. We're going to be looking pacers at this series is going to be important. Who lost these games. There are persons. I think that's entirely possible and You mentioned the bench. I mean the holiday brothers coming off the bench. I provided some real juice offensively. And they're both solid on d. I t j. Mcconnell is just such a frustrating player to go against definite. I just every time that the celtics go up against the tj mcconnell team. He makes three to four plays. That i'm just sitting there scratching my head. Like why is tj mcconnell. Doing this to us and yet he just keeps doing it Core you mentioned kind of And same as well brogden. Kind of how good. He's looked these past few games. I mean i will still for the life of me. Just never understand why milwaukee passed on kia. Now brogden her bledsoe yet. What are they doing. Malcolm brogdon is better than that guy. And he's done a great contract so huge steel to the pacers. i mean. in my opinion brogden is like probably the pacers second best player at least this season and you know kind of corey. I think you're totally on the money when it comes to york written and how he's unlocked this offense There were some sets in that game. You know double screens off. The curl dislike really gorgeous. High pick and roll acts in all all these things that just looked completely different from the pacers last year where they really kind of devolved into ice. Oh ball when push came to shove and with a team that has some good but not necessarily elite isolation scores that that dave gave him some predictable results. But you know in this interational pacers. You see sabina's flying off screens and catching at the elbow. Enough triple threat. Stance the ability to You know hit other cutters for persists the gulf in scoring south. It just seems like bjorkman is totally. Reinvented kind of the pacers scheme. And the results have paid dividends. I i do think the key. Jay warren injury something to watch jay was among the pacers best offensive players last year and was having a good year this year..

"ESPN radio. So STAN Van Gundy is with us during the basketball season. We love having him around and one of the things that TNT guys do and you've got to bring in new voices new media voices. New former players and coaches a baron. Davis was getting a run on TNT. He's always been interesting right Baron Davis. Always he says strange things, right? I think Mike if I don't have this wrong. He said he he saw an alien one time Baron Davis. I remember first time I ever talked to him back when he played in New Orleans. I asked them how much of the league smoked marijuana. And he said eighty percent of the league. And that was a shocking thing at the time, Barron. Davis has always been very comfortable saying things and last night. He was talking about TJ McConnell. We haven't been able to get this sound cleared. But when we do I'd like to play it for you baron. Davis said he was abducted by alliens. But what on Twitter to say that he was joking? Okay. But didn't he also date? Laura dern? I they sing. So might be dating. I'm not sure if they ever stopped baron. Davis is interesting. He's an interesting person who says interesting things, but one of the things that he said last night during the broadcast is he wasn't a big fan of TJ McConnell and the only compliment he can muster for TJ McConnell was he he plays hard, and then he sort of laughed himself and said, but anybody can do that. And then him and shack started laughing, and there wasn't a lot of self awareness in the frame there. As shack starts, laughing and bury Davis starts laughing as both of them have been overweight in their careers and are at the top of any list of guys who didn't play heart. Stu gods strong. Right. I mean, that's those are two funny. People stand Baron Davis. Look what he endured with the clippers was awful, Donald sterling doing all sorts of racist stuff to him. But also he was fat shaming him. Donald sterling was fat shaming Baron Davis. That's there are a lot of basketball players who are fats. You've got there might be guys who are slightly out of shape. There aren't a lot who are fat. And both of those two guys on that set have been accused of being fat baron. Davis said that he suffered from anxiety whenever Donald sterling was was around because of sterling's verbal barbs pudgy not that I think is a fat for basketball player. Stan what do you have for us on this? Well, I mean, I do think both of those guys at times they're conditioning was certainly questioned the time I had shocked. He was in good shape. So that's all really I can speak to in terms of actually knowing, but they certainly were were accused of that. And I would. Agree with Baron Davis onto things number one that that's all TJ McConnell. Does is play hard. I'd strongly disagree with that. I think he's smart. I think he's quickey really moves his feet. He can stay in front of people. He can get into the paint and make plays. And then the other thing I would agree with disagree with in saying that anybody can play art. I don't think that's true. I think that effort and energy is a talent that some people have developed throughout their career. And I don't think there's that many guys who are have the ability to go out there on a night tonight basis possession by possession and give great effort. I think it's hard the NBA seasons a grind. And there's not too many people who can do that. And TJ McConnell's one of the guys who can who's the guy. Former NBA player, you would least what like it'd be funny. If he said that about maybe conditioning playing hard all that. I'm thinking Eddie Carey. I'm thinking Oliver Miller. Our Stanley Roberts. Maybe Stanley Robert you're shooting all those big guys who in it's funny because they're similar in a way. They all had great hands. Very good skill and, yeah, we're we're heavy. I mean, you know, there's just certain bodies made differently. And they were heavy but highly skilled guys all three of those guys you're looking for a guard. I'll submit Dion waiters into the conversation with Darin Davis with Dave is because Baron Davis was portly. Well, wait a minute..

"Here's marquess t shirt. I would not have guessed that. But LeBron has twelve points. He's still on the floor here early in the fourth quarter with his team down sixteen. It's going to be interesting to watch Luke Wong places. Gained five of a sixteen trip for the Lakers, which they finish Tuesday night in Atlanta. I believe and that takes them in. All star game. So there's certainly going to make a run is a lot of time left. Be interesting to see how many of the final nine and a half minutes projects four. There's TJ McConnell late the shot clock driving deep and scoring out of the time out breath prime and the Sixers who lead by eighteen early timeout again breath did the same thing in the third quarter. Didn't like the way they started grabbed a quick time out. There's James under the basket. Passes to Pollick is new teammate left-wing great find underneath to McGee grabs it flushes. Joel Embiid looked over his shoulder. Like who's man is that I think four guys on the bench said joyless cheer guy real mckee's afternoon to Vail McGee with twenty one points thirteen rebounds, Lakers down sixteen Philly bringing it up under nine minutes to go McConnell, drives to the elbow was looking for him Beatles covered outside it goes to Butler. Now, they find Embiid near the high post and beat against McGee. You never had a handle of it. He lost it as his pass was stolen off the turnover to Casey peak Valla broad. At the top eight and a half to go. Lebron goes to the left stops the dribble thought about a shot gives it up with thirteen to shoot gets it. Back from K C P.

"Fouls in the second quarter. Philadelphia has to other team foul ledger. Embiid at the line for two it's the first with two fifty one to go in the half untying the game sloppy or second quarter. Both teams that taking care of the ball. Very well and that shooting it as well. I thought. Eighty was easily within reach. I don't think. So now, we may have to settle for the mid seventies leader Embiid hits both scored the last eight four Philadelphia. He's got twenty points in the first half. We weren't sure. Whether he was going to play because he's so under the weather looking good. So far Sixers lead by two James with his left foot at the three point line swings at right side, who's the missing three long rebound. Ben Simmons Simmons against James going to pass out to the right, terrific fading. That's impossible. Fade into the baseline chance for four from JJ. Radic JJ Radic is the energizer bunny ran the floor it full speed set both feet in the air left the floor still inbound when he landed he was about three feet out of bounds. You that much forward momentum that made the shot, and I was going to second guess Ben Simmons because I was going to say then don't pass it out. Lebron's got two fouls. Just take it. Right. Adam. He made a better decision. Four point. We have a perfect angle on that left baseline. And he was behind the backboard TJ McConnell just stood up in front of the six or marriage. And he's showing the guys sit next to me said, hey, he left here. And he ended up for further out six point lead. Biggest for Philly inside pass Republican gets fouled by Simmons. And now they get tangled trying to push Reggie away. Then Reggie looked back at him foul will be on Simmons. That would be his third. Let's he's a little frustrated early. He's open for three. He was what second in the league top three for sure. In three point shooting last year. Reggie Bullock report to. Yeah. He hasn't quite shot at as well this year. But he's there's no question they gave Henry PJ. So he's going to have to Simmons still to Al foul off the ball on the Laker inbounds. Where did you get hooked up with everybody that time was JJ Radic Radic with his second fourth team foul..

No. But they had Victor away except the Celtics are the ones that did it Celtics are the ones that did they gentleman sweep eliminated Philly. It was a are not Philly, Ben Simmons. They've TJ McConnell was the better option in that series that Ben Simmons with so in his own. But anyway, Vega Tobias Harris like you said key does space cleaners and assets. Think about thinking about what the Celtics have done not to steal Raja's shine. But the Celtics have goes one come from. Who's what who what are the ones come from the ones? They one of them comes from Philly. I protect and then the other one is an unprotected first round pick from Miami and Miami go. Yeah. That's a good one there. That's very good the lottery picks, and you've got space you've got money to spend. And you've got picks to trade or us. If you want you may be able to package those twos up to get a late one. Why and k d? She and who knows about Anthony Davis. All they have. Now, they have what every team is looking for every team that doesn't have a shot at a championship and the clippers didn't now they have flexibility, they have the ability to move around. They have the ability to move players. They have the ability to move space. They have the ability to move picks their their maximally flexible right now. Yeah. And that's the thing that the Lakers. It throws a monkey wrench to some degree in what the Lakers plans are if they don't get this thing done when a D because now there's two hundred players in the NBA there on the free agent market in out of two hundred. There's relationships has already been built when you talk about Katie. We the reason he went to go stay one of the reasons. Rumors or he went to go to state because Jerry West helped lure him there. Now, all of a sudden, you got the clippers available lenders available. I mean, you got all those sort of little pieces kind of rumblings going on about that. But I still believe at the Lakers can get the AD deal done. It will. Have any effect on what they do? Glowing term. Well, the ADP changes everything if they get that. Then all of a sudden, LeBron AD and your we'll figure it out from there. That's good enough to we'll figure it out from there. The problem is if you don't get eighty done and the clock is ticking. I mean, we're getting close to it. This is more of a free agent hiccup than anything for for the Lakers. It will be more of a because now there's other options in the same city that you're seems city that can add more players. They're not tied into. Okay. We'll get one guy to join the brunt. It's we've got space if we get co I we can get Katie. And no, by the way, we've got all these picks we can draft a nice player use that that picked to send somewhere else and get a third player backed. That's a complementary piece to what you need. This is the Lakers are locked into the LeBron track for the next day. So let me ask you this in let me let me switch gears for men and get back to the Lakers can the Lakers say, okay, we're locked into the bribe. But we're in a free agent bucket to and we still got picks. And we got young players. Well, they do right now. Yeah. If don't think we're out they say, you know, what never mind we can now get it to the Katie situation. We could get into a situation we can get into to Klay Thompson situation. We got young player steel, and we got picked this. Oh, it becomes at in the summer the Lakers, and the clippers are pretty even accept the Lakers. Got LeBron in there. The Lakers in LA brand of this.

So I don't know he said, hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised which to me was like pretty a pretty damning statement. So what is the price and we heard before they were interested in trading them. I just don't know how open other teams are going to be to train them. A good veteran piece four folds considering we haven't seen him on a basketball court. I don't think he's he's training bass. On on basketball courts yet. I think he's still rehabbing the injury. It's a little bit tricky for sure they won't get anywhere near the valuable. They used up to the draft him. But we'll see. I mean, it's going to be tough. I could definitely maybe a Wayne Ellington for Rockefeller's trade would make sense. But we're going to have to wait and find out. I don't see him helping anything this year though. That's for sure. Yeah. That's where you know. You don't want to give up a guy that was number one overall pick and needle on trade over pennies on the dollar just because I I'm not a big fan. Trading guys with our trade values at an all time, low it would really depend on what's out there in terms of offers like you're saying or if they could try to find someone through the buyout market or different trade that would make more sense, obviously. But we shall see man. This is a very interesting night. We wanted to start by breaking down the Philly LA rumor obser-, I trade I ever remember this point. But we do have other trader words, we want to get to we're going to break down the list that Frank recently put out that features ten players that were mentioned the most intrigued rubers over the past seven days, and we're going to give you guys a little bit of a trade deadline preview. But before we do that. I want to give it quick. Where.

"And just try now second round picks and undrafted players. Just to see if you can find a diamond in the rough and oh, by the way, they got a couple in Robert Covington TJ McConnell better than those all important round picks that same Hanky was making forever turned out to be anything. But oh, it's happened. And it's happening again now in the NBA with the Knicks. Yes, the Knicks are not trying to win games over the last thirty games of the season. They want to be one of the three. Worst records in the NBA and have the percentage chance to get the number one pick. They are officially not trying to resign market down. But you're not going to hear anyone from the Knicks admit to that their coach general manager there president none of them are going to step up and go hell, yeah. We're trying to lose. So we can get I draft pick. Mark Cuban dead. He said, that's the way. This league words. That's the way it set up. It's advantageous for us to lose games. That's why we're attempting to lose games. That's why got wind not because of the actual tanking because of the admitting of the tanking which you may think is kinda hypocritical because. Yeah, you're going to have sports guys. Like me go on the air and go there tanking, but I'm allowed to say it, I'm not affiliated with that team. If you're the owner, you can't come out and say, yes, we're we're trying to lose. We're not. Trying to win. We're putting the future of our organization above the president of our organization because oh, by the way, you're still playing games charging hundreds of dollars ranch go in and see him. And you're not putting your best foot forward to try and win. Not the smart fans are gonna know it anyway, 'cause they're going to listen to guys like me and others, but the Commissioner wants you to at least try and hoodwink some of them. But hey, you're you're you're out there. You're trying just coming up short. Yeah. Right. Gary meyer. Georgia's next talking football hall of fame..

"And then I'm sure our ahead on should they be looking to add to the roster with record to you. But for them to get out win just a for transparency. There was quite it up play for Toronto at night, but trying to is good with and without quieter tough team to beat no matter what so one of them my team award. Okay. So in this episode, we've got the Sixers we've got the raptors got the Pacers. And then Utah. And then we'll talk about who are watching this week for next week. It's four teams that don't play each other. So it's not gonna be very efficiently. But there the fourteenth we have talked about in forever. So we get to that. Let's start with Philly this week this past week. They had a win over Houston. One Twenty-one tonight three whenever the Spurs. What down to the wire one twenty two twenty. And then the loss at Denver. They were undermanned no Embi nobler one ten twenty six that was a schedule loss, or whatever you wanna call it. They were there. Trying to get ready for the Lakers on Tuesday night quickly their fundamentals offensively night defensively. Twelfth net rating is eighth the first in assists percentage. So they're him. It is as good as ever been effective Togo percentage. Third shooting percentage third when you look at the shooting success. They're having an realize their ninth offensively up to ask yourself. What's going on there? They turn the ball over from a turnover percentage. Perspective six most Ben Simmons is pretty turnover prone. Compared to his spears essentially plays. TJ McConnell is almost he has a turnover percentage north of eighteen and right now, you know, focusing on kind of the rookie class if you will trae Young's turnover eight t McConnell at this point is almost exact internal rate as a rookie small rookie point guard. Trae young we're talk about TJ McConnell hearing a bit. I know the fans their love him as teammates love him. And I fully understand it can see why. But if this team is going to be as good in a strong and the threat that they want to be the postseason. We're talking about his role in minute. Three point math tempts league average percentage. Seventh makes eleventh. I'm sure that. They love to get a little more shooting there. According brewers on a second ten day. Ziadeh area ever know what kind of shooter easier to be sometimes he has released successful season. Sometimes falls off the cliff. I see what he's been doing their opponents of the three point line. Ten Teo is a tenth us attempts. Eleventh lowest percentage, seventh fewest makes I did a do really adopted defending the three point line again, they're twelve and if it's rating this year, they are basically top three start to finish last year. That was about a couple of things one was Joel BP unhealthy for most of the season. And then when he went down with the injury in the season, they had a absolute cupcake schedule the rest of the way, and they had other good player team Covington Simmons degraded but three last year, but they're not where they want to be defensively yet. And then the way they're shooting the ball. They're not having holistic efficiency on offense yet either. But but all of their their goals are all of their metrics are with in rain just about like their way off in some area play. So. That kind of sets the stage without confusing. Always talk about. Developmentally wires is kind of looking at this team post trade as funny because you'll see analysis say, well, they're looking for a permanent defender, and then another big that can help defensively. Of course. I thought what they set out to get Butler. Unite talked about the trade with the happening and said, yeah, we have baiter fit questions. But when you have the opportunity acquire top fifteen talent, you just do it, you know, and then you work on the fit later on. It you go everybody else talking about whether Jimmy's working out, personality wise or not whether the Sixers should pay him this contract to keep him or not all everyone else talk about that. Great..

"Who's joining us from Philadelphia reg on the call the seventy Sixers in the rockets last night before we get to the game. I was texting reg during the game. But only you know that he would read during timeouts though, reg good morning. How many text messages do you get when you're calling again? That I check during a timeout. Yeah. Probably half a dozen. I have you. Mark jackson. Normally techs text me thinking about half a dozen. You know, guys that are watching and some ladies that are watching the games, mama bear, text me Rikers watching things like that. All right. I'm watching James harden. And I just came to the conclusion, I don't know if you can stop him. And so the the job is to contain him. And we've seen a variety of defenses on him. If you were going to help a team devise a defense gimme the ideal defender. And then what do you do to try to contain? James harden, ideal defender would have to be in the range of six five to six seven with length long arms. So that would be like a Colli Leonard Paul George, and I would kinda device what we saw last night. The feistiness of Corey brewer. And then you brought in into smaller TJ McConnell who picked him up full. And really got into his chest didn't back down, and what we saw late from the Sixers as well as they started to double team him three-quarters court and with heir Gordon struggling, no, Chris, Paul. No Clint cappella let everyone else beats you. So they got the ball out of his hands. And then they just denied him. Now. I know that's easier said than done in a lot of teams have done that. But the Sixers made it a point to let James Innis do. Let Gerald green to let the newly-acquired Kenneth free. They shoot all you want. We do not care. They struggled last night. They only made eleven made threes they average fifteen on the season. They average forty four attempts. They only got up forty two or forty three James harden at times was brilliant spectacular. But it was he was Michael there. There was no Tito, Jermaine the other Jack. Jason didn't show up and the Sixers took advantage of that could you play them. Hi, my main defender would have to be with length long arms..

"New Orleans, you're awesome even draft picks your union that Miami twenty twenty one you're needing future. Philly pixes. Well, even if they're lightly protected, it's not gonna matter because the team's going to be really good you want. Ben Simmons Miami two thousand twenty one in other future. Pigs and like two thousand twenty three Phillies like, you know, I'm why after desire Smith to a masking for Joan bowl than I'm asking for younger players as well. In addition to kinda like Joan of Boba, I think the tough part, right? That's so silly is having adds so much salary in the trade at this moment, whereas in the summertime there, they can they can hold onto the JJ Rettig cap hold and the TJ McConnell cap hold and only have to give up Foltz and Simmons in a trade and still have the ability to either resign Rettig McConnell or creative Canadian. So I know the timing of the summers much sentiments future picks in the Miami two thousand twenty one and expiring. I would do it. If I was Philly. And if you're nor Orleans you pull the trigger right now, it I would do it. I would have to get a top ten guy back for him or else. I'd I don't deserve a franchise. I don't want future stuff and picks. And what does that do for me? Now, I have eight thousand people may games. You are at the point. Now, though, we're you you agree that you have to trade Anthony Davis. If you're if it comes to demanding, no, I I would just bring it to head like instead, we want to know from Anthony Davis is does he want to be here or not? And if it doesn't want to be here, we're gonna try to figure out a traitor. That's it. All right. We'll be back. A we'll be back.

"They're very active spoke. So they thought it was a no brainer. And they were all pretty much pushing the Harvard Harvard choice, but you know, have my parents behind in. And like I said I thought I'm going to NBA and a couple of years, so which one gets me. And so that's a main reason why I made my citizen. Once you start bouncing around a little bit pistons too, windy city bulls right city bulls were like, yeah. Like twenty points a game for however, many gays you were there the nets. We're a pretty good break. Like, it was a three year deal. It like, you know, minimum money. But it was you're the kind of player that when you look at like rebuilds Philly Philly goes to a rebuild, and they they signed Robert Covington to a similar deal. TJ McConnell makes the team you start to see those teams taking flyers on guys in Brooklyn. You were that kind of guy. Like, hey, we're we're going to take a chance a guy who gives you a little security and gives you a lot of opportunity, right? Yeah. No after bounce around a little bit and the getting cut twice a about a bull staying that was that was rough the the windy city experienced was was actually fun. It was one of the first time. I'd have fun with basketball in a minute. Nate lizard, kinds of gimme gimme the ball. I believe in you. I know you feel you should've made the Chicago team. It is what it is. Like he was in training camp with us and saw played well and all that stuff and was like, you know, get yourself out. And so I I kind of had fun with that experience, which which was good and and got me here. And obviously like you said they took a flyer, and that's kind of the typical flyer type contract. And I was having to before enough to play. It was the bulls camp experiences. Frustrating situation you'd been in when you looked at like, just thou. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. For sure I mean. And it it just I mean, it is what it is. I mean, I'm saying, I'm still, you know, friends with my car Williams, Jan grant, you know, some of the guys that obviously I got cut over. And I've said it has nothing to do with them. It's just kind of what happens. I'm the non-guaranteed guys. What if if you got three guards that are all six five six six in? And you feel like they can't really shoot it. And you're trying to pair them with Rondo Jimmy and D Wade and figuring out, and I've c- MC w was lottery pick, and and JJ was a first round or two. They got from New York in in the dere. Oh trait. The Naga t dude is gone. You know, it's so funny. You think of like NFL training camps percent BA? It's why the NBA preseason doesn't really get any attention like baseball spring training people pay attention to football training camp. But in basketball's like you can look at a roster almost any team and before turning camp and know exactly who's gonna make the team without knowing what anybody's going to do during the camp. It's really hard to over football. Everything's guaranteed. You're winning losing jobs baseball and some guy makes the big team. But the NBA camp is almost the relevant. Yeah. I mean, it is designed to you know, maybe that very less by or obviously build your team get your team to advance in coalesce and all those things and then figure out who you're going to have on your Julie team kinda way it really is built just like to point because contracts are guaranteed. So when when the move was made. You know, the to to me at least at obviously didn't get cut right after we or they traded for MC w but the Ryan was on wall to me, it it just it wouldn't make sense to carry like four for five PG's army. We had at the time, and you had an identity you could easily off. So it was just kind of math at that point. When you get to Brooklyn. And all of a sudden the injury start Jeremy Lin goes down. And all of a sudden there's opportunity the feeling for you was what this is what I've been you don't wish it on people..
