"That's right mentioned that yesterday right. So there's all sorts of aspects of things going on here and then you try to figure out who wins by leaking things and who loses and obviously there have been jon. Gruden has the first loser. I would think that bruce allen's reputation is in tatters as well never work again within within the nfl community but he. Did you know when when daniel snyder fired him. Now i don't know why he fired him. I don't know if it had anything to do with the sexual misconduct. And all this other stuff going on at the washington football team but they weren't very good on the field they weren't either rights but but it also could have been other things that led to his firing so but he ended up getting paid by washington. Washington didn't wanna pay him. And then you know so you obviously have to people. That can't stand each other. And that would be bruce allen and dan snyder and there's going to be a lot of back and forth and this is why i think gruden said what he said last weekend like the truth will come out and they'll be a lot of people that will be i. I'm assuming we'll be shocked by it. Yeah i mean. But i don't think that's going to change what people think about john. Grooten though he's talking about the truth will come out. He's emails are still his emails. As words still his words each the morning show with boomer acid- in gregg giannotti boomer and geo. What's happening there. jerry. We are powered by super book.

Clearly the the energy around this team is as high as we've seen in a really long time grace. Yeah the fan base is crazed about the team. They loved the team. They love the fact that we have a winning team on. When you go to the garden you should see good effort.

"And yes knicks. Roll the sixers a monster. Second quarter brian anderson on philly sucking thirty nine six outscored the sixers in that second quarter as they just kinda waltzed their way to a one twelve ninety nine win kemba walker had nineteen points on seven fifteen shooting. He was on. Tnt afterward and says you know what took what philly gave them ninety dollars just taking whatever came on. Petunias came to the biggest bit was able to make some shots. It was a really exciting. Shut up because i wrote it to the echo lead business so there's two different slugs the one from the clips. Yeah and then. I then re edit them and sometimes i rename them and i forget if i rename them. I wanted to say or what they said. And sometimes i forget in that case i forgot you do a good job over here was a new york point guard leading the way i say every now and again you have an off game. That's all right here was coach. Tom dibitetto on Kimball walkers night. He played a great game. I thought our team played a great game. And and that's what. That's what i love about our team. We have great depth of scoring forty had eighteen. Julius randle a double double. So by the way i took Julius ran last night the over under for his rebounds was only seven and a half on bet him. I thought that was an easy lock which it was. I also thought Joel embiid over. Twenty one and a half points was easy and that didn't happen Derrick rose did if thirteen here was randall so they lost the other night but they bounce back. That's the thing about this league thinking about. Good teams in his league High character teams like okay to have adversities. Okay dow slip-ups how you respond or they responded from the flip as he said here was doc rivers. Give the knicks a lot of credit. I thought new york was so much more physical presses around the difference in the first quarter second quarter. We made a couple of shots where they actually had a lead after the first quarter and so with the win at the knicks. Also snap that losing streak to philly. The sixers had beaten them. Fifteen straight times think. Embiid was twelve in his career against them. But no longer unbeaten new york in chicago tomorrow night as for the nets. They get the heat this evening. Here's kevin durant and other game with more familiar faces. Good to start the season on to see where you are. Individual leave plan against different types different types of players like. Say jimmy butler. Who has kyle lowry on his team. very clear that he's a fan of lowering. This guy is definitely a blessing to show the floor with that. Who is that said that. That's jimmy butler as jimmy butler. Who said that. About kyle lowry right. Who not only has on the court expectation yet. Larry but off the court. Ones as well of the mo- madonna birthday tomorrow. And i one of really expensive gift hundred thousand plus cow thousand. She needs that. And then there was this pause and a reporter would you can barely hear him. He goes are you being serious. Damn i asked thousand things cow thousand. I'm not either. That was actually really funny. I have no idea serious or have probably not no. He's not show you just how much money they make. How just flip it. They are about it. What do you think key. Kyle lowery's what do you think he's making he's making but say a four million twenty four something like that. He signed three years. Ninety million dollars is thirty. Four hundred thousand dollars for a gift for his best friends a daughter. Sabrina that summer that so this i'm not i'm not asking forty pretty funny Elsewhere the lakers beat the spurs and overtime one. Twenty five one. Twenty-one anthony davis thirty five and seventeen did tweak the leg though a little bit frank. Vogel gave an update. Yeah we'll just have to see. How does he just bangui's with the one of the spurs players and You know i was he counselor but he was able to continue We'll see i responded. We're not university. Have lebron james out with some sort of an injury or soreness and i know that it enlisted as such. They did listed as an injury so he didn't play last teams old. they all they. They got a lot of old guys if they end up winning a championship. It'll be essentially a miracle because of Finish on russell westbrook. Thirty three points. Ten rebounds eight assists of the jazz. Beat the nuggets by twelve warriors over the thunder one. Oh six ninety two therefore now in the mavericks beat the rockets one. Sixteen to one. Oh six all right world series game one in houston i batter the game or hey soul air has going back bad god. Nothing braves bills like boston. Start a world series sprays. Radio sure was. They wound up scoring a couple of runs in the first another in the second couple. More in the third They built the five nothing. Lead wound up beating the astro six to two unfortunately for atlanta. This also happened with your at the plate. And charlie morton pitching. That's a ground ball. Hits off portland kicks over the freemen who picks it up and takes. The first fortuitous carom looked like it hit off. Morten shoe not so fortuitous. That actually broke. His shin turned out. He stayed in for three more. Batters struck out jose altuve and then kind of collapsed than they did x-rays afterwards and so fractured shin. It's not a broken leg. Which bothered al this morning when you being by bothered al. See all these headlines. Slowly charlie morton broke his leg. Or did i mean wait. A little bone bruise freaked. You out for six weeks. Not saying he shouldn't be out but for them when a pitcher breaks his leg. He then can't pitch but you you had a fellow in your super bowl who broke his leg. Roy snapped it. Exactly right snapped his leg. Nap does like he didn't continue out. Alex smith snapped his leg thighs. Men joel fis men dash strap guys leg right act prescott right. This was a washer a fracture. I'm break quote unquote break with broken. Legs redefined be only compound fracture. You call compound fracture compound or you call this a fracture. He just didn't. He didn't like the misleading. And you call your little bump on your little baby. Shin bone various correct right. But i didn't break my leg like when you made me like really shocked that you didn't play for six weeks. I need a guy like being helped off. The field was injured. Those a legitimate six tech. Mommy mommy i heard my shin. I can't play hurt. I there was the thin man. You're right though. You look even thinner my goodness before you were lifted weights all the time when i was probably one hundred fifty forty three pounds. They got forty five pat. I'm one sixty three now now. That total gyms though. Yeah definitely good couple times a week. I said he has peleton going. It's working at all hanging your shirts. Put the pillows on their you change in bed now.

"Well i think not only that and this is what i said right off the bat when they signed all these contracts and everybody was apoplectic. Here go the knicks nixon. All around kazooing all around the off-season again know what they were doing was saying to themselves were the knicks. Were the new york freaking knicks. And we've been a laughing stock for a long time. You know what we're not a laughingstock anymore. And we don't need to be a non laughing stock for all that long until some of the sar players around the league. Start looking older dur- during the knicks ter- interesting there. The knicks again. Look what happened to the nets. The nets were a laughingstock. Then they weren't for a hot second and then they were a superstar free agency destination. The knicks can do that via trade or free agency down the line. They can get cap space into into seasons very easily. We'll talk about all that in a minute. Let's let's let me ask you much simpler question. Who's the starting center of the new york knicks. Such a good questions act and it's actually a wrote today. Friday it is about that golden. It's continued me because mitchell robinson was the starter. When he was healthy last season he was not healthy often. He suffered two significant injuries. I think it was limited to thirty regular season games and nerlens noel. Really filled inadequately was a big part of that nick. Defense when robinson was out. Who's a big part of why the knicks ended up with the fourth best defensive rating and then he signs a three year deal in the off season to come back to new york. Noel that has enriched robinson was extensible still is extension eligible. But i think the knicks have pretty much decided that they're gonna let him go into unrestricted free agency next summer so such an interesting It just an interesting backstory there with the center position because they're gonna be battling in training camp for the starting spot. Timetable does said throughout the year. Like he didn't care who started in who finished. He was happy to have to really good does starts. You guys all get obsessed with the started five. Who finishes is is was. That is that actually. Yeah that's audio from last year. That's not replaying that i haven't tape from his His an interview. I did with him so he know but he was right because they got great rim protection. No matter who was in who is just gonna be interesting because you have no l. at around ten million a year. Is he going to be coming off of your bench and when you have given him that much money i think robinson the starting job is his to lose going into this thing. But that's one of the fun position battles for the next going into training camp up in tarrytown. Well that's that's one. I ask that question for this reason. Because the as i said the knicks were number one in field. Goal percentage allowed at the rim mitchell robinson. Look we've been waiting on the mitchell robinson leap for a while now. It hasn't really happened. He still has some of the same bad habits he's had but he's still a damned dangerous deterrent around the basket nerlens. Well had a career season last year. Career season was absolutely outstanding for the next steals blocks rim protection a little more discipline on the boards. All of it right and when you think about how much of a hit his team gonna take defensively. If any a lot of it comes down to julius randle head by far the best defensive season of his career. How much of that is sustainable. Talked a lot about how much offense is sustainable. We should have the other side of the floor. Conversation to know ellen robinson. How much of that is sustainable. If those guys can answer those questions in the affirmative. I think forty is close to average. Probably a little below average. That's fine kemba. Reliability if barrett and rj barrett made huge strides defensively and has and has all the tools to be a good multi-positional defender maybe across four positions honestly in bear it. Randall and the centers can sustain what they brought on defense last year. I think and you throw in. You know they're going to be well coached and as well prepared as any team in the league florida. You know that anything less than frantic effort is not going to be tolerated and the consequences will be real. If you do not provide that kind of effort i think the backbone of maybe not a top three or four defense again but at top seven. Eight nine defense. I think the backbone can still be there. I think should should still be a strong defensive team. If those big guys in particular can prove that last season was who they are. And i just say one thing quickly about mitch robinson Mike woodson who was in assistant with the knicks last year before going to Indiana iu and taking the head. Coaching job there. He spent time with robinson prior to last season and he had questions at that point about robinson's approach and willingness to be Professional to work every day to do what it takes to improve. But then by the end of woodson's time with mitch robinson. He said you know this kid is reading he's matured. He's approaching things the right way so that to me was was interesting potentially important when we talk about robinson going into this season. Does he take that next step. Because of Maturation process but by large What you said. I think is accurate. Because it's it's so hokey to talk about culture and standards but with tom dibitetto. He established they won last year. The importance of going on going one hundred percent giving it your all on defense. If you didn't do that you were going to play. And that was that's real. It's not just the israel one hundred percent and so because of that. I think that the guys coming in kemba walker been forty. They'll be held to that standard and just based on that alone. I don't think that they would regress to like a middle of the pack. Defense this coming season but it's a. It's a test that to test for his coaching staff To get these guys to defend as a unit one thing rj barrett very great wingspan. Great strength reggie bullock off into gone. The opponents tap perimeter player last year. It's going to be interesting to see if that falls to barrett or how they worked at going into the season. The other thing i'll say is peyton to kemba is a defensive grade just in terms of size and physicality but i don't think it's nearly the defensive guy downgrade that people would make it out to be i think l. elfriede peyton reliability defensively. He gambles he's a space cadet. I think he's overrated defensively. So i don't think that hit is going to be as big as people think so. Let's game it out then. The starting five. Let's just say noel wins the job. Let's just say for fun. Ones kemba forty barrett randall. Noel rock-solid should be a good lineup bench and you're not gonna go five-man bench unit for part of the good part of every game goes quickly burks topping robinson taj gibson in their kiddos as sort of your emergency break in case of whatever guys. That's a solid bench unit. I mean you know as well as i do. Derrick rose plus quickly was plus fifteen per one hundred possessions in the regular season rose quickly burks plus twelve. They were just regularly. Destroying opposing benches less effective in the playoffs. Like every other part of the knicks team like. I look at that team quickly in year..

Dang noah injuries and age break it up and then the tips sing goes haywire and then hoiberg comes in. Rose gets the orbital bone injury next year. it's the three alpha's that was a disaster except they almost won a playoff series up to against boston and first round then they decide you know what we don't want jimmy butler into cola mirror digital bunch of cap space and draft picks. We don't wanna patriot. Butler that's rebuild the rebuild kind of fails and they'll they've pivoted from the revolt rather artfully into this sort of middle or whatever. Should we review. Should we review. What who's under. The i feel like we've reached supporting their off-season where i need to actually write down. Roster should we go over the roster. Let's do it. There aren't a lot of players on the roster to begin with which which is somewhat worrying to me. The big splash. Of course at the beginning was the sign trade for lonzo ball which i loved. I think he's a great move out went to him. I sat are an outlet. Garrett temple came lonzo ball and a four year eighty five million dollar deal. Fair then. Came alex russo for the equivalent of the mid level exception. Like that deal too. That's good value for a good two way player. Twenty seven years old about his old. As zach levine fits right in nicely lonzo ball. It's important that they got a young player because they've hemorrhaged a lot of their young players over the last few years so that's important and he stopped. There's cotin we traded two draft picks and an interesting player wendell. Courtesy for nick virtue instinct. Play worked in the plan. But we're filling smolder fill in some gaps. We're getting some good two-way players. Get some defense in grit around levin and you are not known for their defense and then bam out of nine not out of nowhere out of somewhere but out of out of almost. Nowhere comes demar derozen. Three years eighty-five million out goes another first round. Pick with a big protections on a top ten and aide out goes that is young trade value real trail. Watch the spurs flip thaddeus for first round. Pick in a few months out goes el camino. Didn't did not have much trade value. We now have like eleven or twelve guys on this roster depending on a couple of things. We have the young. Let's call them the young part of the roster the twenty five and under has been reduced to lonzo ball. Kobe white whose role on this team is now unknown to me. And patrick williams. Who's massively important. Then you have the mid career guys. That's like the levin caruso group and then you have the pastor thirty plus guys will call them in dhamar and vukovich three all stars of recent vintage levin derozen. Which i would presume mr fidel. Their starting lineup is lonzo ball. Zach levine dhamar. Derozen pat williams. Nick vuckovich would you agree with that. And what did he. What are your i mean. Whoa whoa that's a. We got a lot of stuff going on here. What are your initial thoughts. The first thing is in agree with you on the starting lineup. But the first thing. I thought especially after the derozen moves acquis man. Things are really really different. Because you and i have had the conversations about the bulls for years and years. And there's just no way in hell garen packs would do these kind of deals. 'cause they always valued the picks more they all the bulls don't have a first round. Pick for zillion your they cannot trade a period right now i think they traded to what became the eighth. Pick to orlando and like they're not putting these teams are coaxing light protections out of the bulls. These aren't top fifteen top sixteen top eight top ten. Whatever it is like these are good picks. And that's the scariest part to me. Is the complete shift chains taken place. I was actually just in chicago couple of weeks ago and man at city in the summer is just unbelievable. I love it. But i'm talking to all my old friends in the organization and they really liked karnisovas and they really like every and they really believe in what they're doing but my question to bulls fans and my question if the front office sydney right now is you now made these moves. You traded away.

But i know that you're something important happened yesterday while it was the rangers. I no no no no no no that that was important. But the atlanta hawks lost they. Did you know the the knicks can get to the fourth seed. They're one game out of the seed because everybody is so bunched up right here and this is why tonight's game and if they can get tonight's game in dallas that would be huge would be fourth seed would be great it would be. I mean to think about the knicks. Be in the fourth seed in the eastern conference before the season started with tom. Dibitetto beginning some coach of the year votes already. Sure i mean he'll he'll get votes if they're in the postseason period. I mean probably. I don't know i'd have to take a look at some of the wins of the utah. Jazz monty williams. Okay omega those two for fifteen. I think they got better players. Yeah coach of the year is always the guy with the least demand expectation. I thought people. I believe people thought was going to be good but i don't know nestle this good sure. Well same thing with utah but nobody thought that would be where they are exactly not a single person thought they they to finish off and i want them getting blown out in dallas or any of that crap. I want them if they can pull this one out tonight. That would go a long way to maybe get into that number. Four spot all right jerry. What else is going on at sports. Well how about the story about the lamarcus aldridge yesterday. He announced his retirement so apparently in the last game he played with the nets which i think was in. La against the lakers. He the lakers said that. Saturday night in brooklyn He experience and irregular heartbeat and so he is decided that that's enough five games with brooklyn he had five years a little more than five in san antonio and i guess it was nine years in portland. He averaged nineteen points eight rebounds for his career then he abruptly says goodbye and obviously very difficult decision for him. Sean marks releasing a statement saying they support Alderson is decision and wish him nothing. But why don't they support him putting out a statement saying look. We don't support the market. All the more we disagree with this decision you hots not that important so you should be plying when did your hatred of the nets begin. Boomer is curious because you used to actually root for them. You did a game there once. Yeah like the way things were going. You liked the building the people there you hate them going the only time. I really like the nets as one. Dr j. played for him.

Coach appreciate you being on the show. Let let me ask you direct question because I. I don't know if anybody has asked you to. Just leave it to you. Leave it to yourself to explain. Why is it that you believe that you don't have a job ahead job in the NBA? As of yet you're considered one of the elite defensive minds. This game has ever seen as far as I'm concerned. University now just widely universally respected throughout. Nba Circles your dedication and your basketball knowledge is impeccable and cannot be questioned yet. You lost the job in Chicago. You lost a job in Minnesota. Wha What do you have to say to people about you as a coach on the NBA level? What is it that we should now? I just think it's the nature of the business.

Oh, yeah. He's as in Toronto. He's in Oakland. He's on PTI. He's happiest when he's working. No, I, I don't know that to be true. yeah i i just said that sound like the right thing to say we only have a couple of minutes here then we're going to talk kyle hendricks but okay i was trying to sum up to the guys off the air about what you texted me earlier this morning you've covered now how many n._b._a. finals near thirty three or thirty four last night in the grand scheme of drama rank for you highs anything as high as any single event night like they've been a lot of games i mean that was at the game we're magic the junior skyhook i was jordan's last shot i was jordan's first grade final shot the switch hands on sam perkins shot i've been at isaiah thomas i i've been in a lot of but in not in any one of those games that you have a star the magnitude of kevin durant being involved in pre-game drama which look like how you get a b. can he do dust off the russ bam three sam three a._m. three i mean that was a loan like floated to the top third then you get him fallen out on the same leg and the the the fans i almo cheering his injury than being talked out of that by like three toronto players saying we're not having that right right and then they changed his name k. d. k. d. as he goes into the tunnel and then you come back and you get your resume a wildly dramatic game that was poorly played in a lot of ways but those are the best Some of the best, some of the most dramatic games aren't class, right? No one. And that game was flawed. timeouts out the defensive strategy why did you learn lose that's right the goaltending to when we come back i want to know from you out of all those things not just the injury whether it was a quote a play a take something that like what are you most hot about or most interested about from last night michael's here for the five o'clock hour cow hendrix who is one of the hottest pitchers in baseball is going to join us from colorado we have an action packed five o'clock hour inside.

"And then I'm flying out six AM on Friday morning. Oh, why first flight out? Great to El Torito. Well, I mean, I landed eight forty five so I doubt I'll go straight till, Tori. Well on man, it's going to be a blast. The I probably will stop at home. I okay. Yeah. Could do that. I'll buy four dollar Al humidor shot. Well, thank you. I appreciate it. Yes. So you had a theory about the hiring of the coach. So my theory is this Bill Plaski was only a couple of weeks ago, and he talked about how basically Kirk Rambus to use a curb your enthusiasm verb is being foisted on on people as an assistant coach and the associate head coach for that matter. And I think that that's been a challenge. I do believe that any coach. Who's got any value to him is going to be like, why do I gotta take that guy? Like, he what is he done? And Secondly, he's not my guy, and he's going to be a mole for you. Like, why do I want that? Like, nobody is going to want that. So I do think that that has been potentially at least a hurdle in at least one of these guys. Could it not be as simple as? And I'm speculating here money Williams's their first choice and he's not available yet. It could be but money Williams being their first choice would be bad. Why I don't think money Williams? Look, I've talked to enough people that have played for money Williams. And they love him as a guy, and they think he's the perfect lead assistant because he can play both good cop bad cop. And as a former player and all that stuff. He can relate to guys, but schematically he leaves a lot to be desired. So he's Juwan Howard more attractive than money Williams, in your opinion because he's a clean slate. Because he could you know, yes, he would he would be more willing to try different things. Well, he's going to run a lot of the Spoelstra sets. Right. Because that's where he's that's where he's got an out. I think he's he's gonna well not necessarily. But yeah, I do think that he would maximize LeBron in very similar fashion than no brainer thing. Just to hire. Tyler do. I think so I mean, he's he knows this routine. He's got championship experience. He's been with LeBron. He he's known a Laker. There you go. And he's even a light. Right. Here's a here's a chance to actually to do the Laker thing. The guy that understands the Laker thing and understands the LeBron thing it just seems like a no brainer to me. I always encouraged by who Tyron Lou wanted to hire his lead assistant. Did you see that Toronto? Yeah. Tom dibitetto. But that was not gonna timid oh doesn't want to do it. But but Tyler said I'd like to try and make them an offer he can't refuse which would be fun because he's a defensive guru and he's a former head coach. And you know that going back to what you were talking about George. It leads you to leave the tight Lou would not be scared to have other thority fig..

"Billy doing Matthias not gonna sit on his hand. He did something as well. And that's a huge piece is gonna be interesting to see if it fits or not. Because you do have surge. But I I was really intrigued back assault on the Toronto. And whether that can lift him up to being the best team of the did the Lakers chances of landing Anthony Davis. Take a hit yesterday by Boston getting into the mix by them waiting till the off season. I think what takes a hit it. Now, there's more students. You know, you're giving the other teams more time to try to come up with something attractive? And keep in mind. Now, you know, you guys were talking about the draft what happened on trap lottery day. I think could have some impact on what happened to empty. Wow. You know, what if they're the team that interested that has the right? Together that get diabetic. You know, what I mean, perhaps trade that and keep in mind that the pelicans aren't going to do what's best for Hampton either. They're going to do what's best for them. And he still have another year on a deal another team. I like Boston take a chance even though the chance and to keep them pry with things limited time. But we also thought the saying for Paul George. We went to Oklahoma City, Mark. I love the Philly move of Marquel Foltz for Jonathan Simmons. They get a pick back forward as well. Jonathan Simmons came up in the San Antonio Spurs way of life, and he, you know, Brett Brown is that guys. Well, but the Tobias Harris Bobin mon- Ianovich move. It looks great. But asking a guy who was the number one option in LA and the number one option in Detroit to now be the number four option like we're living in a vacuum here where the the talent has all been thrown together. But now he may take away shots from Jimmy Butler. Do you? Think this'll this'll be a month or so before this thing gets home in the way, they think it will. The thing is interesting because when you make a trade. More often than that, man. It takes more than a season for everything to come together. The Sixers haven't figured out how to play with Jimmy, right? Not Tobias is in the kind of guy is it really really selfish guy think he'll fit into what they're doing. And I know van the way he's played scoring goes down. He's not gonna worry about it. But there's no training camp. You know? I mean, maybe they need to try to do devil days when they get back from all star something. The chemistry with that team is certainly a big question Mark on paper of the amazing. But it's gonna be a huge challenge for Brett Brown. Get everybody on the same page, and you know, perhaps they need to take a page out of like the Celtics the two thousand eight have a Kevin Garnett come in there and talk to him. Although I don't know what helps sections out and just let them know like look bad or page out of the voyeur. If we went everybody eats them. Draymond green commercial, right? Commercials for. Got commercials for this that like if you win everybody thinks, the don't worry about your personal thing. But that might be easier than Mark. Is there any scenario that could play out where LeBron James and the Lakers miss out of making the playoffs in the Western Conference? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean, they had a great win yesterday a Boston. But I'm driving a Sacramento right now for Harrison Barnes press conference. I don't know how much you got paid dedicate. And there's been a lot of reason not to pay attention to the king is good team. But now, they're fun, man. And they're good and they're competitive and they're hungry. They're headed the Lakers. I believe right now, and they added Harrison Barnes, and they added Alec Burks already pretty good team. So, you know, the Lakers got LeBrun, and that certainly is something that. It's hard to match that. But pound for pound. I I actually think the kings team is better now. And it could be a fight to the end of the season. The you know. Which team is up making it into the into the playoffs. Utah better continue to step up and not fall back because right now, man, I'm really curious to see what this kings team doesn't the second half. What do you think of the bucks adding Nikola mirror teach? And where does that put them a monk contenders in east, obviously number one in the east right now? I I like it. I actually like the buck more than anybody right now. Because. With mayor tissues. Not a guy that you really have to change a lot for he's gonna be coming off the bench. Scoring specialist. Adds to their team Middleton's break. We know what Yana did Bledsoe is underrated. And they don't have as much pressure on him as other teams do. So I mean, if I had to put some money on it. I I like the bucks chances to represent the east right now what people say about the bulls. Nice. You know, living a cool city ovo winter. You know, what I like about Chicago stepped up more? Lady is in love with that cheese pot for people listening. Hi, it s update of you have that good to say don't say that at all, right? How much of they fumbled? This thing over the last few years. Not just not the after Derrick rose post, knee injuries and Jimmy Butler and Tom dibitetto. The Fred Hoiberg debacle Dwayne Wade regime Rondo being brought in to become more young and half. Let it like how many innovations are are people going to get to laugh at as far as the bulls are concerned being the butt of the joke of the NBA. I do like the young talent. I do but not a patient. Steady bad. You know, it's like New York. It's like LA, you know, you just looking at this. And but you guys still got what twenty thousand Sikh waiting list there too? Out. They're still selling out. Yeah. At some point, man. I I wouldn't be. I mean, I'm a little surprised there hasn't been any like front office changes as of yet. I do like the young talent. But how patient is Chicago Bombay? It's been really haven't been forced to be really patient. Layton, really disappointed. So, but you know, the ownership there definitely seems to be pretty loyal. So I expect the same crew to be going forward. Mark. When we look at John Paxson the job he's done with the Chicago Bulls. He was on this station back in December. I won't play something for you real quickly. He said this, and I want to ask you about it. After the fact, I'm not a salesman. I'm not going to get out there and try to convince you of something if that's the guy running your organization in your out there trying to convince people to come to your team. But he's out there saying that he's not salesman. Like how how do the bulls fix this going forward? If you're only going to try and build through the draft. Well, it might be indicative at a roster. Could you don't want to sell something that you can't sell right? Like what free agents running there? Now. Thank the Jabbar thing with curious. But I think there's fingers appoint both ways. On that it still, but you still have that Chicago car the wave that market the way that history to wave. There's always gonna be somebody that says to say what they say about New York the same way, they say about LA, they got some good young talent there, maybe if we can partner together. What what was the last significant agent in their prime that they've been able to sign it's been a while. I'm not I'm not counting weight and that so yeah, it's. I understand your concern. What do you think? Kevin Durant going to have to do not only with the questions and all the other things. But are we going to see a different version of Kevin Durant in terms of how he interacts with the media going forward? Or is there always going to be that that touchstone that sensitive reaction over that emotional reaction to to a guy who you know, he's been asked the same questions over and over because he's one of the kings of the NBA and he put the NBA on his head when he made his decision. And now he has another this decision to make his it's just one of the hazards of the industry that he's going to have to understand or is he well within his rights to react this way. Both like being out here man since media day. I'm not gonna pointing fingers at any media outlets. That's been their number one objective is Dr him about free agency thing that's kind of laughable to me. While it is a big story. Like, how does he know what he's gonna do? You know, what I mean like, how do you? How can you make a decision right now? And like I went on a radio here last Saturday in the first question is where do you think Joanna's is leaving leading? I like he got five must've make it. I think you have to be in the bay area to understand it. But the local media here and the radio are upset with what's next with Kevin Durant. And I think it's kinda got at nauseam for him because he has talked about it. But you know, they've been these teammates. Constantly asked about it starts about locally every day and people got spends on why he's leaving and he can't control it. And I think that's where it's frustrating. Is it can't really control the narrative that he's leaning or leaving. Or I don't think he knows what he's going do that. After what happened occur bloody certainly Anna's right to make his own decision and pick wherever he wants to go in his time. But. I think the best thing for cabinet do just say, look, I'm not talking about it, y'all. Call me, July, and we can talk about it then. And then I can take a lot of stress autumn instead of entertaining. What everybody's saying and everybody that. So where do you think Durant going? I think he's going. Nice. How long have play is this for LeBron? Like, I we were talking about it in the last segment about what this means for this year. But I look if this is a four year play this is just the first year of it. The guy in have to really care about regular season games or what you feel as a young player on the on the rise. He's about championships. And he knows he's going to be judged on that accordingly. How long is happening here. Chevy judiciary. What I'm saying? That's part of the long plane. I don't think. Remember, the Fisher say, Pittsburgh. Yes. Dr J that's kind of team. He got right now, man, you're gonna need a miracle to get them to win. Wiley? He's gotta be extremely disappointed. This season the first season that we saw chink in his armor as far as the injury saw that. Okay. The clock is ticking. These four years I'm going to go away faster kinda like when you go to high school. You think it's going to be a long time. And like the next thing, you know, you're graduating the Lakers have to make do quickly to help them. Not only when a championship at least make the playoffs. It if the Anthony Davis thing isn't gonna work out. The gotta do something else. You know, like you put too many of their chips in that that world, you know, maybe they could have got Tobias Harris. What if they could have got a guy that's at the end of their contract that could have helped him this season. At least been a rental. I think that the Lakers made a mistake by not doing something. Yes. To help their fight for the rest of the season. Because this season's basically gonna be away. Do you think there's a chance that the Anthony Davis thing doesn't work out? Mean? But and they're or they're the chance that it's only two years. Right..

"STAN Van Gundy told you earlier he respects Brian Windhorst by horse is an excellent basketball writer and information guy. If you want to check out his hoop collective podcast, you can do. So new episodes every Monday and Thursday. You can listen on all the ESPN an apple gizmos stand. Go ahead and tell I know you said this earlier, but Brian Windhorst wrote the article why the NBA executive coach doesn't work, and he laid out the argument of the failures. That that have led to Tom recently being fired. So go ahead and tell Brian as he comes on with us how wrong he is. Well, what I said earlier is not only works. It has always worked in terms of teams getting better in a Gregg Popovich the obvious won five championships. The only conventional model that's worked better was Jerry Krause and Phil Jackson. Pat Riley took over the team in Miami. And eventually came back wanted championship. But certainly turned that around Doc Rivers for years with the clippers the best four year period in LA clipper history might Bhuttan Holzer improve the hawks by seven wins a year in the three years that he had both jobs. Tom thibodeau takes over a team averaging twenty eight wins a year the three year before he gets it. And if you average out what it would have been by his win percentage. He he wins an average of thirty nine games a year in Minnesota that team got better. And as I said, I was the worst. And we took over the worst team in the east. Okay. When we came in we improved it by eight wins a year over the four years we were there. So I'm racking my brain to find out win didn't get better with that. Right. So you guys go back to work on this. I won't give staff. This the pistons were a mess when he got there and he got into the playoffs. And that that's definitely true. I think it would use the Popovich in Pat Riley, examples, you're absolutely right, STAN. And I think they are the outliers. I think the clippers they had they had good teams. But I think from a front office perspective, they aided they did very poorly. When doc was was headed, the the president is one of the reasons why they took it away from him. And and the the the hawks went backwards. They were sixty when team in Danny ferries last year as the no win team in Mike's first year because Danny built the team Danny got removed before the season started. It was it was Danny's that was Danny's team that we are two years later when bud had control for two years. They were forty three win team. But I don't I don't even think we need to go blow by blow here. I think that the thing about it is. Like to. If you guys don't mind. Because the what it seems to me Brian at you're basing the fact that it fails on is that the owners decided to go in a different direction. So what you're basing the fact that the model fails on his you're saying the owners never make a bad decision. Oh, you're right about that. I think a lot I think just about everything that happens with teams can be traced ownership. I think ownership is the most important thing. Whether it's a coach Lexi who to work for or whether it's a player selecting who to play for. I think ownership is very undervalued. But I would say that one of the things, and you you can certainly speak to this day and age, you know, this was not the case with Red Auerbach, not even the case when when Pat Riley and pop took over their teams and established in the nineties, you get all of the blame draft pick doesn't work out. You know, you have a bad month's, you know, you you. There's an issue with a player coach relations. Ship. One guy gets all of the blame. And that was harder to survive that's harder to survive these days, and it was in the eighties and nineties when this when this rose up, and that's something. I think is a is a big factor here in today's day and age where the media is all over the league. Like, for example, one of the one of the first things that Doc Rivers did when he became president was the front office botched managing the hard salary cap. They use a full mid-level exception hard cap their team and ended up having to trade away, a first round pick to get out of a mess that they put themselves in for no good reason. You know, you didn't have media all over every single move. Every single, you know, your salary cap machination and weren't pointing out Dr screwing that up that wasn't happening in nineteen ninety seven one Pat Riley was running the heat. It is a completely new world out there, and that makes it harder that you know, that means that to be successful in that job to survive. It you've got to have great seasons. You've gotta you've gotta have Gregg Popovich type seasons. And part of the reason why pop was has been so good in. That is an RC. Buford is a hall of fame general manager who's out there finding in these incredible players. It wasn't Papa sound manager. Nobody and Tony Parker was RC. Now, he drafted him and he gets credit for that. And you know, I would say that your general manager in Detroit. Jeff Bauer was one of the most highly respected executives in the league. You talk to people in the league. Nobody would say. Anything but positive things about Jeff power. It is a really really hard job though, especially when you inherited a mess of a situation when they had five coaches the previous seven years and very limited talent on the roster. You have to read the needle and be so good in that job because any mistakes that happens comes back to you. And I think that's a scenario that is different today than and it makes it harder to survive in that job than it was when Popovich and Riley took over STAN, well, I'm not arguing that it makes it harder to survive. But I I don't think it means that it hasn't that it hasn't worked. I mean, it's worked in terms of every team that's done. It. The team has gotten better on the court everybody that's done it. And certainly there's front office mistakes made. I mean, we don't have the time in this entire show to outline the ones that I made Brian. But that's not to say that people with the conventional model aren't making just as many mistakes, we wanna go or. Innovation by organization, and because the jobs are split up. They don't make mistakes. I mean, that's I think not true at all every one of these teams and the most recent situation with Tom you wanna talk about taking it to the playoffs since two thousand and four that team was a laughing stock. He made them relevant. He got him to the playoffs in forty seven wins in the west this idea that Tom Tom typical failed in Minnesota, not even close. I don't know how anybody could come to the conclusion that he failed there. Now, they decided to make a change. They do it. Glenn Taylor can do what he wants is an owner. I've always been supportive of that. It's the owners team. He does what he wants. But there's nobody that gonna convince me that Tom dibitetto failed in Minnesota Brian did he fail? But see. Here's the thing. Again. I'll go back to one of the points in this article is that this will still happen again. Because there will be teams who are so desperate to recruit coaching talent. But they will give the coach both jobs, for example. What stan? Golden State Warriors. Correct me if I'm wrong, STAN, we're ready to make you their coach. It was the most attractive job on the market. They wanted you. And you were so in demand, Tom Gores from the owner of the pistons would like I watched him Van Gundy, so bad, I giving everything he wants giving him the money. I'm giving him the years. I'm giving him the job title that will happen again. This is not going away. But the tips point the trade that he makes the reason kids got fired was because he bet big on Jimmy Butler and Jimmy Butler did not reciprocate. And and that failure was the reason at the end of the day was the reason why he lost his job because what happened with the team had the general manager made that trade, and he'd been the one that had to take the bullets for that failure, Tom typically, I would still be the coach if there was some general manager general manager access Milton Newton had retain the job when flip passed away and Milton Newton had made it Jimmy Butler trade even at Tom timid. I'll tell him to do it, Jim. It would be Milton. Newton's neck was on the line or. Manager general manager ex. And that's just one of the things that is just so different. Like, you know, I am an agreement with stand in the general idea here that that that if you know basketball, and you have full control your team that you may be able to improve the team. I just think it's really hard in today's environment for to work because of that. Well, I would agree with you that it's hard on coach. There's no question in terms of the way that your evaluated, but I think from the team's perspective. The team has always gotten better when people have done this. And it's amazing to me though, that the narrative now is this doesn't work. I think one of the things that happened is, you know, Adam silver came out against it in Adams, a great great Commissioner and the owners will pretty much. Everybody appreciates Adam wants to please. Adam Adam doesn't like it teams are going away. But to promote a narrative that it doesn't work, and especially in this last case with Tom that it didn't work it didn't work for Tom. Okay. Because he did end up taking the blame. I don't even know why he's why there's blame to be passed around who won this fight. One..

"One two four CBS if you would like to get in on the show. My name is Sean Pendergast good to be with all of you on a Sunday evening. Still a lot to dig into break spin an eventful evening. It's always set up that way when you got playoff football going on on Saturday and Sunday. So phone lines are open to talk about the wild card round games. Look ahead to the divisional round games, gut feel on some of those. We can talk about which of the I've my question for tonight is in which the wild card winners this weekend. Dallas indie. The chargers in the eagles. Do you see pulling off an upset next week, which one is most likely bet your life on one of them who would it be eight five five four CBS? Tom dibitetto fired in Minnesota. We're talking about maybe a year and a half ago where that was viewed as a team that was finally gotten the core in place that they wanted a big man of Karl Anthony towns wings quality wings, all star wings, Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins and Wiggins not an all star yet. But a really good player. Gotta give a max deal to Jeff Teague solid point guard, and and now Tom fitted gone, he's fired wonder how much of it had to do with his handling of the Jimmy Butler situation. We we can talk about that Bryan dealt salary will join me in the final hour of the program in about oh about forty minutes from now, and we can talk about that. But as promise joining me on the show right now, he covers college football for CBS, sports dot com and has done. So for a long time, very very well college football playoff title game is tomorrow night, and Santa Clara. We'll talk about that some of these head coaching changes and a whole lot more Dennis Dodd at Dennis Dodd CBS on Twitter. Dennis Dodd joining me on the program right now. Dennis happy new year. How are you? I'm great. Thank you. It's good to have you on the show. Dennis before we get into the game tomorrow. I'm looking at a piece that that you just put up about three hours ago. That's really interesting about the college football playoff itself. And the headline is big ten advocated for review of the college football playoff protocol as early as a year ago. So give us the kind of net net on this. When you say that the big ten advocated for review of the college football playoff protocol. This doesn't sound like it's necessarily the big ten pining for a bigger playoff. But just that the playoff be looked at in a in a way that that they feel is more fair. Yeah. I mean, it's not it's not an application for expansion at all. In fact, the big ten is against that. Philosophically this your stuff tails off I guess the last month a lot of speculation about expanding the brackets all the commissioners are going to be tomorrow here in San Jose. And that's not going to be it may be an agenda item. Amac wanted to act on it more to Jim Delaney's, I guess opinion or urging that they look into again the protocol so four bullet point you can look it up on the internet. How teams are supposed to be evaluated head to head championships. One, you know, stuff like that look at the other two, but. It's all those back to the big ten champion being less out the last three years and. Jim Delaney wanting to know should there be more weight given to conference champion? I don't know how there can. Because this case if he did that this year, Ohio State with the end and then beat Notre Dame with the out. So it's really kind of a catch twenty two saying look he's asking for a review of a protocol that he and the other ten at the commissioners wrote and oversaw. So I don't you know, it's not like. Basically checking your own works. Right. This is like in the NFL when people appeal suspensions, and they appeal to Roger Goodell who gave this suspension down in the first place. You're right. They're they're checking their own work. How big a sticking point Dennis is it with these the conference commissioners in the powers that be the schedule, you know, that in the SEC in the ACC, there's only eight conference games. Whereas in the other power five conferences, they play nine conference games. How big a sticking point is that. And is there any way to get around? That bothers a lot of people. But it's absolutely not going to change either. You have to understand either ten little fight them. To compensate, especially the they all do things at different way. They definitely don't want to be told to do it the same way because the scheduling philosophy in the ACC is different to the one the big ten which is different than the one in the SEC. So they can complain about it all they want. Why in heaven's name with the SEC had accomplished game? One eight nine of the last twelve national championships. Federal only put their teams more at risk to lose a game be dropped out of playoff consideration. Just for one example, it takes I think about six years for an SEC team to play all the teams in its league fourteen. The big the big twelve to every year. You could see the problems here in the inequities. I don't think it's solvable by this there, there's probably this thing is probably going to go through the last seven years of the contract with fourteen. Tweak it in the middle of this thing. Like you're trying to do now. Dennis Dodd CBS, sports dot com. Joining me talking college football Dennis you mentioned Notre Dame. And they of course made the playoffs this year undefeated regular season. They don't they're not in a conference. They don't play in a conference title game. Any talk about a conference title and being part of the protocol. Notre Dame's on sort of a different island than everybody else. What's your sense on on Notre Dame? Like how much resentment is? There may be over. The fact they don't play in a conference play in a conference title game. And does that status for them, especially in light of how poorly they played when they've been on big stages like they did a week or so ago are they in any jeopardy here of their independent status hurting them at all? No, what's again, the people that wrote these rules from this protocol wrote it Notre Dame in mind. Welcome Notre Dame. You can't have a legitimate playoffs. Day. Now, you know, you you could talk about them joining a conference record on Twitter and making them. Question is a Roman put a gun to their head now. Born to happen. If you're going to have this playoff. You're going to have to have Notre Dame part of. For better or worse. Will they join a conference maybe someday? But I think the the deal with NBC goes through twenty thirty five or something like that. And they're buying those games. Finding buying Notre Dame scheduling brand. So no, it wasn't an issue until this year when they didn't have that. So data point obviously, the downside for Notre Dame, basically with thirteen point or conference. They basically have to win every game. Losing your out? We saw that late in the season. They lost USC. They probably would have been out of the top four. So there's a little bit of that. There's a lot of a lot of us. Come into no doubt before we get into the college football playoff title game. What did you think of the Dana Holger Sohn higher? You've h. Good. You know, I I guess Houston is trying to hold onto these Jews or trying to stay in some sort of discussion for joining a power five conference. But it's not going to happen. They got a sugar daddy. Titas Landry's restaurant group who throws good money after bad to his credit trying to keep his alma mater relevant. You know, getting paid three point seven million dollars with the PA getting out of town headed of posse of West Virginia. One question. What are you taking two point seven? I think you would have. That's the way they roll right now. Houston is a good coast. It'll be very offensive entertaining to watch. But Houston isn't going anywhere to a major conference anytime soon. Dennis Dodd joining me on the program identifies college football playoff title game before you get into the match up in who you think's gonna win this thing. The ticket prices had been a big story for this. I'm assuming are you in Santa Clara right now. Are you in California right now for the San San Jose about four miles away? But you're covering the game out there, obviously. So the is the the buzz locally out there does that mirror. What we're hearing about ticket prices just plummeting through the floor on this thing. Yeah. It just doesn't fit. I'm looking at my window. So I guess green space in the middle of downtown, San Jose. And it was supposed to be a big fan says it's raining, and there's nobody there. There's no buzz about the game. There's a party tonight. Back to just grabs the area. It's such a disjointed area. San Francisco's about forty five miles north between. You've got Santa Clara. If anything this region likes pro football, California, at least in northern California. College football. But look they bid on whether runs you know, that tourism board or convention euro bid on the game. And they won the bid not their fault. The two teams from the southeastern coming here. And that's the reason why just take. What do you think about the match up in this game? Obviously, Clemson and Alabama. They've they've met four times this'll be the fourth time in a row now that they've met the first time that we've seen Trevor Lawrence go against this Alabama defense. What do you think the key matchups are in this game? Well, gosh, we're talking about it for days. I think there are several. Alabama's going to slow down. Travis h he had to try to put it on Trevor Lawrence's shoulders. I you know, I I guess we'll see see becomes the second quarterback freshman quarterback ever to start and finish a game for national champion hasn't been done since nineteen eighty five. I think they feel pretty good about trying to do that. Alabama's secondary is underrated. They ever number three in passes defended this year eighty five. I think a key. That is Clemson is tied for fourth in the country of of long game pass forty yards or more than eleven several laws. We saw over the topic of Dame last week. But Alabama surprisingly good against that. They've only allowed. I think six game to forty yards through the air. It hasn't been the discussion about Alabama at all this year. It's been the best quarterback that they've had the best set of receivers. Eight had probably the best offense. Changing philosophies in midstream to accommodate to go off in RPO's. It's I I compare it to Tiger Woods tearing down a swing at the top of the game earlier in the century in itself. It's exactly what job. So I think that's one of the matchups. Clemson's do sets of line. They talked about putting too and a phone with just gonna have to be a really small kid has more mobility than maybe anybody I've ever seen. Carla Murray, that'd be great. I think they'll run more established to run against that defense because it helps them dropping back as as I. For three hundred yards. Because I think they'll make him more. Interesting. Dennis Dodd thrown out, the prophet there. I liked that prediction on the game. Dennis. Oh, yeah. I think Alabama win. It's a five and a half points. Like you like clemson's with the point match. Bats go down late in the fourth quarter navy a field goal game. Which would be really interesting because near these dangerous for very good at kicking field. That could be weird that that's a great point. Yeah. On the heels of an NFC wildcard game where we just saw the upright in the crossbar that would be something else. The national championship game coming down to Dennis Dodd at Dennis Dodd CBS. Give him a follow on Twitter, especially with the the national championship game coming up tomorrow. Dennis really appreciate you making time, man. Thank you, very much happy new year old to do it again with you. There. It is Dennis Dodd appreciate him joining he's been doing it a dentist dot he does a great job for CBS sports dot com. Good stuff. I'm I'm excited for the game. Tomorrow, I do have a little bit of Clemson and Bama fatigue. But the Trevor Lawrence thing intrigues me I'll say that we know Kelly. Bryant was just overmatched. Shawn watson. I, you know. I don't know that anybody's gonna write a better story of going against Nick Sabin in Alabama. I don't think any opposing players going to write a better story than to Shawn Watson did a couple of years ago where he took Bama down to the wire had maybe the greatest individual game ever against Alabama up to that point and lost. And then comes back the following year and beats them on a late. Touchdown drives them down the field making play after play after play throw after throw after throw. But I am intrigued to see Trevor Lawrence a true freshman, go up against Nick Sabin in Alabama should be fun..
