"A major splash with their head coach to help smooth over how bad it was. Overall, Sixers are kind of like straddling this line of still a young team. Like New Orleans is, but they're also old enough to kind of be set in. Some ways, like rockets are so Doc comes in, and I don't know if the expectation is he's going to be the young growing Star Whisperer. But that must have been a moment in which he was able to convince people Give me more power than just being a head coach. I can't imagine Doc Rivers is coming into this situation with zero control or, like 50 50 control over a move like Hey, let's trade Tobias Harris tomorrow or we should have moved on from Al Horford.

Ben Simmons' Injury Calls for More Consistency From Joel Embiid
"More bad news regarding Ben Simmons yesterday. He reportedly has a nerve impingement in his lower back. As a result he's expected to now be sidelined for an extended period of time. He will be reevaluated. In two weeks there is little expectation. Though that he'll be close to return at that point. Nick is the sixers season basically in jeopardy or is now this embiid. It's time to go out there and own it and shine. Yes and yes yes. They're seasons in jeopardy. Their season jeopardy basically evidently since the season started when they did not take a leap forward and step instead they took a step or a step and a half backwards but yes also this is Joel. Embiid opportunity to show everyone. We can be better without Ben Simmons. Mb Better with a point guard or with a collection of players in return for Ben Simmons that better fit my very unique skill set in the modern NBA. That Simmons and embiid have been an awkward fit from the beginning because of Simmons refusal to shoot and because embiid even though he will take some three pointers is maybe our last remaining old school. Nba Center back to the basket. Give me the ball. I'M GONNA punish you on the post and so the fit has just been awkward. And we've seen that. Both guys have at times played their best basketball games. The other guy has missed playoffs last year. Maybe best game whose career was a game. Joel embiid was out. Joel embiid the highest scoring game of his career. Literally was the other night when Ben Simmons was out and so I think Antoine. With or without Simmons. This is not a championship level team. They have not played to that level anywhere close with through fifty five games while the bucks clearly have but it is an opportunity for Joel. Embiid to give the sixers. Maybe a sneak preview of what the team would look like if this offseason. They were to see what Ben Simmons could fetch on the open market. I believe that. Obviously they're not. They're not a team that can win win with either one of those guys together or without them. They're not going to be able to win. And these two conference. I think the fourth best team in the East I think obviously Milwaukee's better than the Celtics. Antonio I think all three of those teams better than them even when phillies whole Right now this is going to be opportunity. L. andbranch legitimate shot to really get take a really good sample size of what they all. Look like if Ben Simmons then play and I would look at it. I will take that approach. Because that's been the compensation that maybe these guys cannot 'cause this together so I will take a look at that and see if embiid could be the guy that you can build around and see if you can win with him that fourteen game five hundred. Just settling scores still out there. Tobias Harris a guy you pay big into free agency. You still have him. Obviously Josh Switches on team you made a great trade thought an ad and scorns the team without its birth and then Robinson added to other guys. That can score the basketball. So they're not they're not out of they're gonNA make the playoffs. They should be able to win a first round series without Ben Simmons Back Andrew. I take that very serious. I think this is something that you cannot rush rush back. This is a guy a franchise type player. So you don't want to rush him back just for this season so you gotta make sure he's healthy. But I do not believe when even with both of those guys that are fourth best team in the East and you got to be very cautious to bring a same as back a- and at times it's unfair we've said on this show before the single best in life in the NBA. Is the the non superstar on the Max contract because you get all the money with none of the pressure none of the criticism? We talk so much about Simmons and embiid. Tobias Harris has not played nearly up to the standards. They paid him to play at an Al Horford. That that move right now is one. They would like back the money they gave. Horford in the fit. But those guys are I. Don't WANNA say untradable with those guys are going to be on the team next season. So you do want to see what those two guys can look like with. Embiid there without Simmons but the the numbers are are jarring. As far as way win the sixers are at their best with with embiid without some between show him. I think within bead without Simmons with Simmons without embiid with both of them with neither so that's their margin that's their net rating with just embiid. That is a that is a great team as far as net rating with just Simmons. That's a good team with both of them. That's an average team and obviously with neither of them. It's a terrible team. You don't WanNa see the numbers like that that somehow they are the worst with both of them then with just one of the two it does speak to potentially a bigger problem also to add to that. I just think when you're to superstars in both of those guys are stars last year. Yep they didn't get better You know you gotTa You. GotTa sometimes you look in the mirror. Ben Simmons to shoot a jump shot. That's embarrassing you know. You had to add a jump shot you smith all summer. You got everybody filming. You shoot. Jump shots you only want to shoot. Won The game so let me ask you this then. There have been so many stops along the way where we're Ben. Simmons could have been like. Oh okay reality check or now. It's time for me to now. It's an off season. It's time for me to get better. I've gotten myself so far if Joel embiid goes out and carries this team and I know that the record coming up or their schedules schedule is going to be a little bit easy but say they go out and be great without Ben Simmons. Could that be a wakeup call? Could that be a a little bit of a gut check like listen? I got I got to step my game up if this is not where my future is looking at. This has been. The talk is the conversation L. Brent. They may have the sits may have no they don't trade it and neither one of them but I think if you WanNa trae one of them you get a good look at. I think it's just a fact you get an opportunity to look at it. Take a real good sample size and see what you like. If you WANNA take one or the other I will keep both of them. I will just hold both of them accountable. I think you have to have real talks with them and say if you WANNA get on to the next level. We got to continue to improve. That's everything when be continue working on his body getting better law he what. He's good and where he could be effective at his game. Ben Simmons has to develop some type of jump shot or at least attempt some type of Johnson for him to continue to get better so he can expand his game. You gotta put that pressure on them and these guys have been making all star teams. These guys are supposed to be getting you over the Hump and getting you back to the finals. And they're not making the right adjustments in their game. So it'd be interesting to see what what Philly does. But what's so odd is their first year together. They were a dynamic. On-court pair that the net rating that. I just showed when they're together is point. Nine less than one point was fifteen and a half plus fifteen half their first year together. The year they ended the regular season on that crazy. Winning streak seemed like a really dangerous team going into the postseason until I think it was the celtics knocked him out in the CA- yeah it was the Celtics in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs last year together. They were not as good as plus half but plus eight when they're on the court together this year to be plus one inch or two best players it makes no sense. Ginny. You say the reality check. Promise reality if you've been similar like well first year in the league. I'm the best rookie. My second year in the League I I make an all star team. Then I get a Max contract thirty in league all star again. I'm making Max money. Seems like what I'm doing is working here so it depends on what your what your ultimate goal is and what you measure success by. I think been someone who would sell. You Failed Never

Players most likely on the move at NBA trade deadline
"Forward so here it we're getting close to the trade deadline right Thursday three PM as the NBA trade deadline here's a dose of reality about the trade deadline I'm from our our understanding you know forget for a moment who the Sixers are interested we know they're interested in Robert Covington Bogdanovich Derrick rose handful other players with other interested in them our but the issue which has been the issue all along is what do they have to give up in exchange to make such an acquisition and the only names that anybody can come up with includes the organization or someone legs I hear Smith or Mike Scott who quite frankly nobody wants either those guys they're throw ins in a deal to complete a deal nobody wants them what is our year end Smith bringing yeah he's young but guess what he's still NBA incredibly raw hasn't matured hasn't grown hasn't refined anything skill wise so he has of no value right now he's not helping out anybody Mike Scott if my sky can hit a three he's worthless out on the court he can't play defense save his life so the only thing you really have his draft picks which you're really running out of them so when you look at the the reality of their situation right you know that nobody wants a Smith Mike Scott Tobias Harris is completely untreatable who on earth would want that contract for a guy who's hit or miss night in and night out who is completely unreliable nobody that's a contractor you try to get rid of when you eat a lot of it if things get out of control al Horford come home find a single team that's gonna want anything to do with that contract including the Sixers to be honest with MBT and Ben Simmons now I know earlier tonight our when I was that I was at home doing a little bit of prep get you know for let's talk about tonight and jotting down some bullet points you know Howard Eskin joins Joe Giulio I usually Tuesday nights and of course you know what a certain point they were talking six years and I'm listening to Howard and he would love for the Sixers to have the the guts to trade either Simmons or in beat by Thursday afternoon when it comes to that I could not disagree more we all know what they think it is it comes down to this we all know would ban is capable of and we all know if that big if becomes unlocked what is truly capable of and and the different level that he goes to what we we see how talented he is Jo Ellan beat when his mind his head is on tie and his mind is focused we all know the talent that he truly is and what he's capable of there is the incredible talents in the NBA which are so rare and hard to find right this is what you stunk those years for to get players like that do you think if you decide to trade either of them by Thursday afternoon you will get anywhere near close that value in return no you sell either of them you're getting fifty percent at best in return you're not getting the proper pieces that you think you're missing in return for one of them not even close the best I and I mean this is what I think they're going to do I I would be I I'm I I can't imagine any scenario where they decide that we tried to trade either of them by Thursday three PM what I envision possibly happening they move on from the head coach they find somebody else to try to get through to one of them to try to make it work you exhaust all options before you make a decision as drastic as trading one of those two players I mean this is the hope right here I I can't envision any scenario because the we all know Joe wells a half court player which doesn't exactly fit well as a centerpiece in today's NBA which is all about pace but having said that if it's heads on tight you get to the playoffs that's when you need to have core presence more than anything and when you have banned unless he has the exact talent around him his shortcomings will come forth in a half court game yet again so I I still I still hold out hope that the two of them can work together if the towns around the correctly if they're motivated properly if they're put in certain situations I will

"The clippers are really play like really really in play that he goes to the clippers and he really likes that hard nose team. And they want something different any kind of in a weird way wants to play against the warriors and beat him. And like I've heard stuff like that. So if any any of the two teams, I think those teams, but don't count out Brooklyn either. I I'd be surprised at Brooklyn end up with nothing. They've really shown a lot. And they see they have fun. How do you define nothing because you know, Kevin Durant and collider here, I'm pointing very high and I love to buy. I think he's a great fit. But I'm not crazy Tobias Harris, Kevin Durant or Coalisland when you say you'd be surprised if they end up with nothing, how do you define? What's nothing? What's considered Tobias Tobias Harris stumped? I agree with you. So so when you say they end up with something, that's who you probably thinking about a guy like that. Maybe not Kevin Durant. Okay. That'd be a big deal. I'm not phrasing correctly. I'd be back Tobias. I'm just I guess I'm clarifying that. Then may not end up with the max guys out of all max, guys like Hawaiian Durant. I think they're on a different. Okay. Yeah. They'll just yeah. They're not there yet. What can I get another guy? And then they keep your cap space open to biases air. And then, you know, then now instead of teaching to you chase one, but it's incremental growth like Knicks. They just wanna be awful. And if he really could most people can't do that. Maybe we don't even know the Knicks yet you that rob the the thing play out. But but most teams when they're coming back and building culture their culture is built by what players team the playoffs. I just like the Knicks have different rules. I always thought it was a special place to be in play. I clearly over the last twenty years they just had not been able to Milan big time pre agent. But I always I always think the Lakers are in play the Knicks earn play. But it's funny that the teams in both those cities, probably they sell culture, but they actually have great culture. Now Lakers cultures awful, but the clippers poachers great same thing with Brooklyn and New York the niche and the clippers both are better situations. The lakers. The Knicks are better because they're the Lakers and the Knicks. I mean, they are the your name wise success wise than it is in the NBA. So I think that the clippers that that they can sell but the Lakers Knicks point in their logo and say, we are the plea mute teams, you know, figuring correct figures figure this and this is coming from a Nick fan for almost fifty years. Okay. I go I got pain from the Celtics from years ago, right? Doing that. No, I think that actually I would be great radio. Here. Come the Celtics running over the. I've seen a few times when it makes it ran over the Celtics soon. So there's been that as well. Oh, man, you dated yourself. What are you eighty seven? No, no, no. I'm close. So Russell Sam Jones Casey Jones right on down the line. I want to go into it. All I've seen everything you could possibly see just remember one thing the last time won a playoff series. They beat the Celtics. Although it did not feel like they actually beat them because they almost blew game six hundred thirty. But nevertheless, nevertheless with that said just count on this as a longtime knick fans nineteen sixty to expect the worst you'd never disappointed then wind up with the fifth ticketed draft at number one wind up with a fifth day because that's the least they can get. That's the lowest they can go, and they won't get the rand or anybody of that ilk. You you didn't try to wait for zinnias? But I. Expect them to do anything on cater.

"That was not a trade. Like, oh, I hope if we do this. It'll be easier. Keep Tobias Harris they did the trade because look the trick. Because I like to buy Harris enough thinking, we're going to keep one of those two guys with the the number one reason they did that trade they're trying to win the title this year my nose they said, but no. But I'm saying they looked at it. And I think they looked at it pretty smartly that you never know when you have young superstars, and it might blow up at any time. And you think your window is ten years. And it turns out it's too. We gotta go for it. And we went for it, this that was a trade they made to win the title this year that was not a future trade. I mean, if they keep him great. But I think they really want to win this year. How do we make this about in his canter because they gave up all that shit for Tobias Harris MIR teach goes for a second rounder in his canter goes for free now Tobias Harris as much better than those guys. But my point is you can find people who complain a playoff series. I don't necessarily have to trade. To every asset. I have. And if I am I better get somebody who is a slam dunk. And I don't think Tobias Harris land up if you look at the history of those kinds of deals when a guy is under contract, and you can tell where it's gonna resign things change all the time. When it happened. We both were like, wow, it's actually kind of a lot in comparison to other things craze Spiring free agent. So we're in agreement there. The cantor thing though, maybe the positive is is not just a rebounding in the scoring and knowing that there's going to be stretches where he gets eaten up and as much as like one game one, we can think. Oh, wow. This is how the series is going to look it's not it doesn't like I went back and looked at some of the stuff this the Pacers beat the Cavs last year in game one by teen is ridiculous. The Celtics that year with Isaiah Thomas. They lost to the bulls. They may have lost. The bulls of Rondo doesn't get hurt their the Houston San Antonio series with a year round. Or you're in Rondo doesn't get hurt truth or from two thousand seventeen you think the sell you don't think the Celtics are in some trouble there? I choose not to think about team wasn't that good, man. And then you know, it they weren't that good. But you know, Houston smoke San Antonio remember that series a couple of years ago and that was game. One think they won by twenty something I had it all written down. Here is off the top of my head. And then guess what happened? We're like, man. San Antonio to slow too old, Houston so much more athletic look, at the way, they're cutting. And then guess what San Antonio and six in hard and had an awful awful elimination game to go with some of his other stuff in his bad playoff resume. So all the stuff we've seen drive-by. Yeah. Tartan? So he's turn off the headlights dot James. I try not to freak out too much is bad. As it looked for the thunder the side the thing that I haven't gotten too young Kanner, and I'll make it quick on. This is I wonder sometimes if a team it looks so much what okay see does the high pick and roll with Adams diving and then somebody coming off of that. But if you are saying, hey, let's kill canter this whole game every minute..

Fortunately, cobwebs off of me coffee on it's a good thing. And it's time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones. Best networks, no contracts had just a little bit. We're going to dive into what Laker president Magic Johnson says about the way the negotiations for Anthony Davis with the New Orleans pelicans went down and why he does not think that the pelicans. Negotiated in good faith, which is very obvious. But fine. I'm good with it. I have no issues with that whatsoever. Magic to his credit handles it. Well, now his Lakers went out last night or yesterday afternoon in Philly. And played well for about two and a half three quarters and it got away from him over the last quarter and a half or so, and we're all watching now is Philly the beast of the east now, they got Tobias Harris. This was a guy a little bit off of the radar at the deadline because he was kind of buried a little bit in L A and with the clippers not the Lakers. And so it's hard to pay a lot of attention to what's going on. We all remember the great clippers start to the season. But how do they do it? Well, they got production across the board. No real superstar Tobias Harris has slid into Philadelphia in the first couple of games that they have won both wins. And boy help spread the floor can knock down the three three out of five from outside yesterday. And what was one forty three one twenty win over the Lakers. But the star of that game for Philly was a guy who is flat out a Laker killer. In fact, Joel Embiid scores more points per game against the Lakers than any other team. He faces except the clippers. And he was dynamite with thirty seven including this quickly into.

Today was the day that have stand in Gundy on so that we could spend seven hours breaking down the Tobias Harris trade shifting the power balance from west to east as he heads to the seventy Sixers. Is that what happened there? There was a shift in Bauer Tobias Harris changed conferences, and you felt the shake around the globe. And if only STAN Van Gundy, we're here to give us his Tobias Harris information, we would be a better show today. He will be with us on Friday too late. Now is the time to have standing Gundy's expertise on Tobias Harris LeBron James suffered the worst loss of his career as the Pacers beat the Lakers by forty to the bigger story. He sat nowhere near his team. It's actually it's the other way around his teammates decided to not sit near him. Wait a minute. That's one story. But the rest of the story is the Pacers fans while administering that chanting at Brandon Ingram. Lebron will trade you. And javale McGee. They changed. Something different. Chevelle McGee not worth trading is what they did. That was some clever stuff the Pacers. That says cutting and cruel as you will hear from from a crowd.

"I big there. It's unprotected as wash and others have said that is one of the league's most coveted picks because by two thousand twenty one no one's really sure what's gonna be going on in Miami. Couldn't it being a very very high draft pick. So the also. It's looking bleak. Yeah. They don't have much room to improve much flexibility. So you look at that pick in two thousand twenty one's not too far off. It's unprotected. If that pay wins the lottery, they still get it the clippers do so they get it very attractive pick there. They also get a pick from the clippers a two thousand twenty first round pick. Now that is lottery protected basically it will be lottery protected than it would convey as two second round picks in two thousand twenty three two thousand twenty four if it doesn't end up going to them outside the lottery, so they get to for first round picks here. They are also getting a two thousand twenty one two thousand twenty three second round pick. And really the thing that will just saying and others are saying is that Tobias Harris was looking like he can get a maximum of a contract and free agency this summer, something that would have been very difficult for this trip clippers to offer. Given the fact that they want to be in the mix for Kevin Durant. Kobe Leonard all these big name for agents. Their goal is to is to acquire. Two stars this summer. And part of me wonders if this is kind of a backwards way of thinking, maybe, you know, if you have to buy Harris, at least you re signed him and have a centerpiece going forward if you miss on star free agents, but this is then being bowled. I think this is them being confident that they're going to get someone big in free agency this summer, and they don't need to buy as a backup plan or a safety net. And so yeah, I mean, this is them basically saying we're going all in on this off season. And and rebuilding our team. You know, they were team that was that was playing really well throughout this year. They were fighting for the playoffs. They're currently in the eighth seed in the eastern cocker. I'm sorry. The Western Conference they were only three and a half games back from the fourth seed so all year long. They've been a team that really has exceeded expectations and done a good job with this move though. I think you're seeing okay they're going to shift to being a lottery team and everything is going to become about getting two star players this summer in free agency. So that is their goal here. They I think they wanted to. Get back. Some pieces for Tobias Harris, if they were thinking this summer, we're gonna make other agency moves into buys is gonna walk for nothing. Then that's why you make move like this to get some kind of assets back in a deal. And I mean, you get a guy in Landry chevette who's a really good rookie that it'd play. He's a really good shooter playing really well in Philly would give an opportunity so the clippers are getting draft picks. They're going to be focusing on free agency this summer the Sixers there this summer. They're also going to be focused on free agency. Jimmy, Butler Tobias Harris are both unrestricted free agents and whoa JR. Says that they are planning and budgeting to re-sign and keep their big four initially whenever this was reported people were saying, oh, are they going to re-sign Harrah's instead of Butler Harish is going to be there as a rental, but no they are trying to budget to sign Harris and Butler alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, and if that happens that core could be scary for years to come. I think they call them in each other. So well, this is gonna be a lot of fun in Philly. So right now, I would say there's a lot of excited about in Philly on the court in an in Los Angeles. There's a lot to be excited about going forward from a team building standpoint. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean for the clippers we have before the trade the Toronto we heard that one of his preferred destinations would have been the clippers quiet, Leonard. And then Anthony Davis also mentioned them as a potential landing spot that he would like to get traded to..

"Welcome to hoops hype podcast. My name is Alex Kennedy and joining me today to break down a trade that actually just happened as well. As some other trade deadline news at rumors is my hoops hype colleague franker Beena, Frank what's being great Alex almost during in the morning, but I got a freaking jolts advantage. And like I chunked a coffee after I check my phone for one last time tonight. I see back to back bombs from shops and from wool Zhang Tobias. Harris freaking traded Tobias Harris. This is I love this leak so much it can be three in the morning. And then, you know, NBA nerds like you. And I just rushed our laptops to record a podcast. This league is the best for anyone who missed the trade. The Los Angeles Clippers are trading to bias areas. Bo-bottle Ianovich and Mike Scott to the Sixers for Landry. Shamet Wilson Chandler, Mike Scala and a two thousand twenty first rounder and a two thousand twenty one unprotected first rounder via Miami and then to second rounders. So that's the whole deal. Whenever I saw Tobias Harris is the first jumps out, obviously. Because I mean, the is having a monster year he has been useful about as a possible all stars have because he's playing so well, he's averaging twenty point seven points seven point, nine rebounds, two point seven assists, two threes per game. He's been very efficient to he shooting. Forty nine point three percent from the field for a two point two percent from three point range. He's in the seventy third percentile in isolation scoring and actually this is interesting to me. I tweeted this out because whenever Jimmy Butler got traded to the Philadelphia. Seventy Sixers I and cover the team and spent two days around them. It was ballers first time, you know, getting into Philly meeting everyone and all of that. And one thing that to me was dwelling beat said, we have something now that we never had before someone to create their own shots and make shots off the dribble. And that was right. You know, he was talking about Butler's ability to create for himself, and now with Tobias Harris a guy that has I mentioned is so good ice. Oh situations. And really hasn't been doing this whole career. He's always been a guy that can score for himself, and you know, create buckets. I cover him in Orlando for a while. So I got to know Tobias pretty well. He's the kind of guy that really can carry an offense. But on top of that he's also a guy that knows his role and is a really good locker room guy. You know, you look at Jimmy Butler, and some of the issues that have popped up there where you have a number of these alpha males in Philly and everyone wants the ball. Everyone wants attention in that kind of thing to buys the exact opposite of that to by a quiet guy. He's he's going to be absolutely fine being the third or fourth star on this team. But I think he still such an underrated talent. So this is kind of move that people like you, and I freak out over because we see how good this team could be, you know, whereas a casual fan may here Tobias Harris and think oh, I don't really know what drives game. But how excited are you for this move because I look at it. And I'm wondering, okay, first of all how can the Sixers team be Tobias areas is a perfect fit because he cannot not only score the ball off the dribble. But he is so great at catching shooting opportunities. You shooting forty two point two. Percent from three which is already three points. He was a huge refill already. You add to things that they absolutely needed. He's only twenty six years old. So don't expect any kind of declined. They could resign him the summer. He's at unrestricted free agent this summer. So they could resign him. This is a very very interesting move. And if I'm the if I'm a team like the Toronto Raptors or Milwaukee Bucks Indiana Pacers that was competing with Philly and near the top of the Eastern Conference. I hate this right now. Absolutely. I mean, what a train like just I don't know where to land the guy like Tobias hairs..

This is after hours with Amy Lawrence while here's what we know. The Sixers just gained another all star caliber player. He's not an all-star though. There was a push for Tobias Harris to be an all star. We know he's having a career year. And it only twenty six years old. Maybe this is an opportunity for the Sixers to sign him long-term. But therein lies the maybe. And the major risk think about what the Sixers are giving up for a guy who is potentially going to walk at the end of the season. Now, if they make him a do you make of it max deal out of a lot depends on how this goes the rest of the way. But he's a free agent at the end of this year, and they just gave up a few players nothing. Huge. That's going to shift the balance of power for the clippers or for the Sixers, but they also gave up two first round draft picks. So they bring into by his Harris who could walk at the end of the year, which would be a major disaster. But if he stays and they've got a plan in place, the Sixers deal for Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons.

You say Stephen guys guys a champion Spar player in winter. And you know, I just I just love the the sort of consistency and toughness that he brings to our team in that starting lineup. You know, it's interesting because all the years that we've spent so many times talking about basketball. I remember reading a recent quote from your quote prior to the season that is well somewhere in October where you were talking about pace of play. You were talking about the three point shot. More free throws. You know, the reset the new rule recession o'clock, you get an offensive rebound shot. Clock doesn't go back to twenty four seconds of goes to fourteen seconds. You will wondering how long does pace was going to last. But you were talking about the high scoring that you would give it up on like the first two games of the season where y'all gave up like one hundred and twenty eight and then obviously, you're shutdown Chicago Bulls, and you said you're going to be interesting to see how this season progress. Talk to me about what the NBA is about right now in terms of pace of play. And what an adjustment it is that coaches and players themselves have to make in today's game compared to what they had to make. Let's say two or three seasons ago. What is it? Like right now, can you break that down force?.

"Him take care of and smooth over some of the bad shooting nights that everybody's going to have. I think that's helping him. How many player of the month? Would I have to give him before he stopped being Tobias Harris in your mind, like what how many I think back? Got I've got a string together like six or seven players of the month. So that he can. He's able to it'd be the enemy. But I'm just saying, that's I otherwise he's still Tobias Harris Harris is good though. I mean, I'm not saying just to buy I think he has to make an all star game. Right. I think that's the that's the step that he is. He hasn't read the juggernaut on the juggernaut clippers like that that come not sustainable because he's Tobias Harris. I think it, you know, they're the number right now they're tied for first in the Western Conference. So they are the juggernaut. And they are not one of those teams are doing it a little bit differently than other teams. And so I think the part of it is that is sustainable is there not one of these teams. That's just getting hot shooting a lot of threes and things like that they're twenty-seventh in the league in threes. Made. That's not how they're doing it. They're on the attack there number one in the league in free-throw attempts. Those kind of things are sustainable as a team and as a player, so I would argue that it is sustainable now. They're not good defensively. And they've started to really drop off their now in the bottom half defensively. That's where they're going to have some problems. They're susceptible to injury. They're not real deep. But but the way gallon Ari and Tobias Harris or plane and mantras herald off the bench. They've probably got the best defensive back. Pat. Beverley they're they're good. I mean, they've got a chance to be good. You're saying names that have been around for like five years, and they've always been these people you, and I what I'm telling you is that at the end of this conversation at the end of this month, and at the end of this year, the clippers will still be led by Tobias Harris. And that's not good enough. I would disagree with that. You know, I think it is good enough. And I think they're look I don't think they're going to be in the top seed in the in the west where they are. Now. I don't see that. I see him, you know, probably not even getting a home court in the first round. But I do think that you know, they're going to be in the playoffs in a tough team to be they beating the warriors the rockets twice. They beaten good teams. I mean, I mean, everyone's beating the rockets they in the warriors the rockets twice, but we are in a place where if you look at the standings in the Western Conference, they're all beating each other. Like, they're all all the teams have been roughly playing it. This is how you get to a point where the nuggets and the clippers are at the top of the standing the west is so confusing right now. Yeah. And if they have a three game slid they're out of the playoffs in that confident. Well, it's not confined, you think that would be a three game slide not a three-game slid. But, but you know, you're right in terms of what can happen. That's what I'm saying. You have a bad week in this league in the. West and you could drop out of the top eight playoffs and the month is mistakes. You're left on your mistake. Like a real coach. It's not slide. It's slid assez standing Gundy, really poking in the neck, Mike.

Were there folks and joining me to talk about the start of that season here in the clipper film room with a mood lighting and a couple of scuffed on the walls. Don't know if that might be the remnants of particularly dicey film session. Tobias, Harris clippers veteran forward joining me to chat a little bit about the clippers hopes for the coming season. This interesting stage that the clippers are at this is the first time in a long time that there is no more lob city de'andre Jordan. The last one out the door. This summer, of course, Blake Griffin goes out in the trade last season that brought Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley and others here. Chris Paul out a year ago. So a whole new era for the clippers and they're doing it in the shadow of, oh, yeah. Yeah, LeBron James who just landed down the hallway from them at Staples Center, so everyone sleeping on the clippers now they've been written off understandably, so this feels like a little bit more of anonymous of a team, but there's a lot of talent to you're actually and a lot of positive energy been around the team. The last few days these guys feel like they can make a Mark. Maybe they make the playoffs. Maybe they don't. I do believe this much. They're going to be tough night in night out. They've got guys like Avery Bradley, Pat Beverley who are going to bring it defensively. Lukamba mood say they've got scores like Tobias Harris and Danilo Gallinari. It's going to be a fun group and an important season for them because not only are they trying to reestablish an identity now in the wake of losing all the stars of the past era, but they've got to make a market a good impression on the free agent class of next summer because there are some big fish coming potentially in the twenty one thousand nine hundred agent class and the clippers wanna be in play for them. They need to have a strong season to become that destination. Tobias, Harris really thoughtful guy. He's had a fascinating career so far even just in terms of the number of times he's been traded Milwaukee, Orlando to Detroit before coming to the clippers. He's improved every step along the way. He is like your classic self made guy. He has built himself into one of the best three point shooters in the NBA after not being a three point shooter. He's got a fascinating background. His mentors include George Gervin the iceman. We talk about him quite a bit. Dale Ellis. One of the great three point shooters who helped him refine that three point shot. We talk about that. He's also Tobias Harris, a voracious reader. We get into a little bit about some of his recent books and the influences they have on him how that's translating to the court. We talk about his veganism. It's not it's not a fulltime vegan. He's got a part time vegan. I'll let him explain and a whole lot more. Just a really thoughtful guy, a really fun conversation. I think you're going to enjoy it before we get to that. Just want to make my weekly plug. To you. All appreciate everybody for listening and subscribing.
