"Boston, Toronto, Miami, Of course, the Bucks of the best, But ah, the 2 to 4 teams. Even Indianapolis sons. A couple of key players like Sabonis have played really well. I came in. Thought it was going to be the West. The fight dogfighting east you get you can to get your head smashed and in the N B a finals by whoever comes out of the West. I'm not sure I feel that way anymore. I think the east is caught up. Yeah. Your name Mr Western Conference. I disagree. Okay? I don't think the East has caught up. I think they have some very talented teams and the difference between East and West to me. It's talent, Bane. Strictly talent, because what the Eve says. If you look at a king by Miami and you look at teams like Indiana, they don't have like extreme star power, but they have quarter and they play really, really hard. They played really hard. But when you look at the way the West is full of duels. Bill from the Star Power. You look at the Clippers. They have Kawai and and Paul George. The Lakers have LeBron and a B Houston They have Russell Westbrook and then hard go down the line of different teams in a western top of Dallas as stop forcing it in Lucca. So the star power in the West is just so much richer and so much more than it is in the now. That's not to say that the can't compete with the West. I feel like the West better all the way through the East. They have certain teams that wins and they play hard. The Toronto Raptors. They played extremely hard, but they don't have that star power that they had last year were quite limited. You know, Indiana. They don't have that start out now, but the only people not who he wants what you know He's still trying to work. It fell back into all star form. You know, Miami has him, Butler. You know Obama the bios up for most improved player, but the star power in the duels that are in the Western Conference or what? Set the West apart to me. Yeah, You're probably right. Just I've just been impressed by a couple of East squad said I wanted to give him their props. But we shall see. I want to finish up with a couple Antonio Daniels questions. As a 17 veteran. You spent four years with the Spurs in four years with the Wiz two years with the Seattle SuperSonics, Maybe, and oh, my to them. Who does Antonio Daniels. Most remember himself pads when someone asks you. You're a former player for who? What team? Do you start with?

So when I was traded to San Antonio in 1998 99 I have lived there, Smith. And a lot of people when they talk to me about basketball if I'm walking somewhere, and they recognize it from my time with the San Antonio Spurs my most memorable year and my 13 year career was with the Seattle SuperSonics. And that that was crazy, because even though we won a championship in San Antonio, my most memorable individual season was with the Seattle SuperSonics a year that we were picked to come in last You were picked to come in last in the Western Conference last in our division. No one gave us that. We end up winning 52 games. Nate McMillan wins coach of the year. Way lose the San Antonio and the second round on a Tim Duncan banks out of the buzzer and six We want that away from going to Game seven against Remember that here they want a championship. So I don't know. This is just for me.

"For the twenty nineteen NBA, Champs the Toronto Raptors. Eric Smith. Grey. Eye Eric, how are you? Doing. Very well, thank you very much. If we. As Tronto Basketball fans twenty one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighteen, twenty, thousand nine. You. Know what what a season that we had to defining year for for fans. When Twenty Twenty March twenty twenty comes around. And everyone is saying. Can we go back to twenty nineteen three fast forward? Through twenty twenty. But I'm now thinking I. Don't know about you eric that. Maybe, twenty twenty year that. Really, we're we're. We're changing I hopefully. We're changing the way that we treat each other. Yes, moving forward when your thoughts on that. Listen just to be clear. I'm ready to ready to answer this an absolutely ready to go. Are we rolling? We are we were. I think you're banging on. I think that there's no denying it was what a eight twelve weeks ago. More than that. Obviously when things started, but it was probably eight or ten weeks ago where we all were saying making we just hit the reset button can can can twenty twenty just go away? I think there are a lot of people certainly NBA circles. That were looking to the very beginning of the year when David Stern passed away and then when Kobe Bryant Steph came at the end of January as well so even just within the NBA community that were. Significant stories to start the year, and then all of a sudden we get to the first weaker little longer than the first week of March and the NBA to me was perhaps the league that kind of started it all almost globally. I mean there were already certain countries especially overseas that were starting to. Go into lockdown measures in quarantining or whatnot, but it seems like the world in general no-doubt. North America didn't truly take notice in didn't truly extinct drastic steps until the NBA said. We're done. We're hitting the pot right now and I think because of all that, and because of the fear that all of us added as as humans. As brothers and sisters in husbands and wives, parents, and grandparents, and aunts and uncles, everybody kids. You know people of all ages I think we were scared I think there's still a lot of people that are scared in terms of what's happening in the world What's going on? When will it go away? If it goes away? Will there be a vaccine? Won't there be a vaccine? Who will take it? Who Won't take it? HOW SAFE THEM I? Is it okay to go public? Should I wear a master? We're asking the questions. Go on and on and on and I. Think you can way on people and I think that's probably the reason why a lot of folks were just saying it. The pause button no hit the race button. Let's yet act to twenty nineteen. Let's pretends didn't even happen, but as you say now. What has happened. In the last couple of weeks specifically. And certainly, since since the killing the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I believe that. In the wake up, call should have happened a long time ago for many. And I'M NOT GONNA sit here on some some high per. Se That I. You know I've always been aware. And I've always been fighting the 'cause I believe I've been an ally. I believe I've been away, too. Many of the issues I believe supported. All or the at the very least most of the issues over the years I like to think that at live my life in a good way, and if treated people Broccoli, even through all of this I've seen there's more I can do. And even if my doing is using my voice using my platform again, being stronger ally, for friends for colleagues just for humanity period and I think because of that There's a sense of no. We shouldn't delete twenty twenty. We need to use twenty twenty as the wakeup call for what needs to change not just between fellow man. Obviously. Men are one night when I of course Even, if doughnuts, not the diver conversation, but even the impact on our environments everything. You again I. I know we're going to circle back to. The current race relations in the issue surrounding that led no doubt but you just think of the impact that covert has had on the lack of pollution and bluer skies and cleaner skies and cleaner air, and more animals, roaming in in neighborhoods in areas that they didn't before and clean waters, and all of that I think should serve as a wakeup call to perhaps the way we need to live in the way. We need to treat our earth. Yeah, better when? I do return to normal quote, unquote, whatever normal ends of being. Yes I was speaking with a a friend of mine. WHO has battled? Three different types of cancer. over the past. Less than a decade. And, she was saying she has like a new. Outlook on on on how she approaches life. You know just with what she's gone through. her name was Manila and when he was telling me that. You, know when when cove hit. You know obviously. Everyone is is in a in a state where you're freeze. You're trying to figure out what to do next door. How do you approach this in one of the things that she did was? What can I learn from this week at I? How could I become better and I think one of the things for me. Is is empathy..

What does the future of sports look like?

"Do you remember the night that coveted nineteen got serious and North America? It was early March. Donald Trump gave an oval office address to America about the new corona virus. At the same time Tom Hanks announced he'd tested positive. And meanwhile a basketball team was being pulled off the four. Utah's no longer on the floor. The thunder no longer on its bench. The officials have gone back to walk through fans here in the arena. I don't know what's going on. We don't know what's going on has been postponed also this astounding and unprecedented story continues to evolve the NBA is suspending the season. I say that understand. Now this is gonNA sound stupid. But we'll all that was going on. I was watching it happen. I was drafting a fantasy baseball team for the upcoming season. And now because I can't bear to turn them off I get notifications every week. Reminding me to set that fantasy teams lineups. There are no lineups. Baseball is a fantasy right now. There are no sports and beyond my stupid fake team even beyond all our collective excitement about things like watching the Toronto Raptors. Try to repeat. The absence of sports has an impact. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make a living directly or indirectly from those games all work but also on a more psychological level and this age of streaming and on demand and specialized curated playlists live. Sports are one of the very few things left that millions of people experienced together at the same time and the absence of that has an impact to a sports. World hasn't stopped. It's actually oddly busier than ever. Just in very different ways. They're huge changes coming to these games. Some of them will be temporary but some of them will be permanent. And someday when you watch a game on TV or go to a game in person or even if you don't give a crap about sports if you find downtown in a big city on a game notice those changes. When will that actually happen? And what do they look like? Nobody knows at least not yet. But we will talk to someone who has been working on finding out as soon as claire catches us up on what you need to know right now. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Says the government will have more funding and an expanded job placement program for? Post secondary students who are struggling to find work. He says all the programs introduced for students will add up to about nine billion dollars. Antero has now become the second province after Quebec to call in military helped to fight the corona virus in long term care homes premier. Doug Ford says this is meant to provide operational and logistical assistance. So that workers can focus on caring for residents Ontario's also expanding cove nineteen testing to every resident and worker in long term care homes on Prince Edward Island the premier and top health officials say. They're hoping to lift some of the restrictions around Kovic nineteen in early. May they say this'll be done slowly and with consultation it's still not known when school's in. Pe. I will reopen. And the one thing the premier says will not change anytime soon is the restriction on mass gatherings. Pi has had twenty six cases of the virus. As of Wednesday evening. Canada has now topped forty thousand cases of covert nineteen with two thousand and seventy four deaths. Jordan he'd Rawlings and this is the big story Richard A writer for the athletic. He is also the CO host of writer's Block on Sports Net five ninety fan in in Toronto and he is also the CO host of a new podcast called sports on Fos sports podcast much and a pandemic with no sports. Hello Richard why? Don't you start as somebody who's just completely immersed in the world of Sports By telling me what you've learned about sports since they've vanished. Well that's a good question. I think first and foremost it just re emphasizes the importance of the escapism in our lives. It's not to say that prior to covert nineteen. We didn't recognize and understand how important sports is. But I think it's sort of human nature that when you lose something that you love when you lose something that is very close to you it really reinforces in reminds you just how much you've missed it. The interesting thing about this so far is that the literal time it's been gone isn't long. I mean we haven't been a year away from sports. We haven't been five years away from sports. You know depending on sort of your locale or what your sport is. We're looking under two months still but it feels longer. That's kind of the interesting thing with this. That it feels like we've been missing all the stuff for such a long time and it reinforces just how important and you know how how impactful it is all our lives and no matter what your sport is. The likelihood is it impacts you in some form or matter on a daily basis whether you're watching the live event where you're reading about the Levin Bet. Whether your you know on facebook or twitter instagram talking tweeting or posting about the lot. Then so I think that's for me. What the absence of sports is Is reinforced is just how central a figure. It is in in so many lives were. Yeah they were Sports are so integrated into kind of the rhythm of our daily life. And I'm not just talking about you know you. As a as a sports journalist myself as a sports fan but Just the way kind of life ebbs and flows are a constant and. I guess what I want to know is what happens in that billion billion dollar industry when all of a sudden there's a huge vacuum and there's just nothing well a lot happens And it really depends on what area you want to focus on. You know for a the business part of the industry you're seeing furloughs layoffs and tournaments and or jobs that will never come back. Rogers Rogers Cup just announced. It's cancelled and tennis. Canada just furloughed all sorts of people. And it's their intention to bring people back but you just don't know you don't know what the what the future holds think about all the teams that Think about all the people who work either for a sports team and just think about like well the vice president or the public relations person or the or the player but all the jobs that are associated around sports the bars and the restaurants that do business on game days people who Who Work in the businesses in the neighborhood outside of ballparks vendors who provide sports teams will whatever they provide so the reason. It's a six billion dollar businesses. Because there's so many ancillary parts connected to it so very few people are not impacted by it at least culturally or psychically. But then there are millions of people who are literally economically impacted by it and those are the ones. I think about because the reality is all the jobs. Don't come back you know. My Hope. Is that most do? But I'm a realist to know that all won't what have we learned about? Who's getting taken care of an? Who's not since this has begun in the sports world. You know I've seen A lot of athletes and and some teams reaching to take care of their employees and then some outcries over other teams just letting everybody going letting them fend for themselves. Well usually learn who you know or again to sort of have these larger takeaways. At this point I think is impossible and probably a little arrogant and that we don't know what the world is going to sort of hold for us six months from now what it doesn't terms of a Sort of a micro focus is it does tell you what what institutions are community minded. What organizations are trying their best to save jobs versus doing immediate cuts? But I would say honestly for the most part. A lot of these sort of questions won't get answered for for months. We don't really know what it means because we still don't know how long how long were in this abnormal situation. And they're going to be parts of North America that returned faster and parts of North America. That a more conservative don't and we don't even know the impact of of what that means you know on a personal note. I support listening to the medical professionals and scientists and if that means we have to stay at home longer means that at the same time. I'm very fortunate where I have a job where I'm able to do that and still navigate. You know there are other people who hands so. It's just very hard to to answer that question organizations that really care about their employees. I think will do come up with the most creative solutions. They can't ultimately save jobs. Preserve Jobs. I wanted to ask you about the big picture. I but now on On more micro level you're doing daily sports radio and now You've launched a sports podcast at a time without sports What the heck you guys talking about. Well you'd be surprised. I mean if you have enough creative in And Smart People. And I'm not referring to myself on that is sort of behind the scenes people and producers technical directors etc. You can come up with stuff like the the fact is like the Nexus of sports and covert nineteen is is pretty significant from what these leaves are thinking now to what players are doing to athletes who are connected to medicine right now and some of the more remarkable things that that they're doing everybody essentially within this has a story that's kind of why they're still a lot of content to do. It's because every person in the sports world in some ways impacted this you know. Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred are impacted in a certain way commissioners of Leagues. And they have to figure out what the how to navigate the next path where. Hayley wickenheiser is impacted differently. Someone who's a former athlete but also an emergency room doctor? So you know has to sort of navigate that world so at least for both the sports on pause as well as writer's block I I have

Inside the 24 hours that shut down the sports world

"Michael Grange is senior writer at sports net he covers the NBA or at least did before was suspended. Hi Michael Jordan. I'm doing all right. We're just trying to keep up as I talk to you and I'm sure you've seen it the. Nhl HAS JUST SUSPENDED. Its season as well. It's just remarkable How the pace of these things. It's almost kind of a symbol or an apt emblem for the problem. That that's Kinda confronting everybody is is you look at how this this issue affected the sports world and it was you know just to the pace of three or four days space three or four days? It was kind of incremental. You know people were paying. There's a little bit more urgency around it and then you know everything's just kinda come on like a tidal wave and You know that's roughly I think How the kind of manifest itself through populations is You know it's sort of a little bit of a creep a little bit of concern and then all of a sudden. It's too late and things kind of spiraled and Guy Can't really recall anything. Released a sports where the things and news and developments have come so quickly and rapidly and suddenly described the scene at the NBA game that forced the suspension of the season because that seemed to really be the tipping point. Four all of this very interesting. I mean The Oklahoma City Thunder were hosting the Utah Jazz. There was some concern that there is sort of like the Star Center for the Jazz. You know was ill. He'd been kind of exhibiting signs of I think he'd been tested for strep throat was exhibiting signs of being unwell and he was given a task for Kobe nineteen I believe the day of the game and he so he never went to the arena was home but had turned out the team's hotel but had that test been negative that he simply had a kind of a more common kind of flew his expectation plan was to play the game and the So the two teams are floor. The music is playing. Crowd is in the building. You know the the tip is approaching and right around the time when the ball would've been going up and and all of that you know one of the The team medical officials for the Oklahoma City centre kind of came running out of out of the back of the building onto a data. Deficient gathered to coaches and my understanding. Is that the player tested positive for covert nineteen. You know those are responsible came very quickly. After that it was determined they would have to at least have to postpone that game. It takes them a while to figure out how to relay that information to the crowd they did and you know within the hour almost of that decision the NBA realized that had to suspend operations for the possible. What had the discussion around this virus and the MBA or even to this virus and sports In the bigger picture being leading up to that what kind of measures I were being taken. What were people considering? Because I got the sense that this escalated very quickly you says correctly you know the NBA has gotten a lot of credit for being very proactive and a little bit ahead of the charge as a release the other North American sports. I don't know if she claimed. In this instance you know we saw how rapidly this escalated in parts of Asia and Europe and is of last week you know the the first kind of acknowledgement of the virus by the NBA was You know kind of an internal memo that was never made public but kind of out saying no players Daffy be conscious of Of you know sort of shaking hands and kind of dropping slapping hands you know. Go with a bunch of bumps fist-bump when your own or don't feel obligated to sign autographs. So he's doing about the players. I mean themselves from you. Know actions with the public The next stage of that but it wasn't taken seriously and I certainly saw players can figure doing that and The only really making a big deal of it. Which goes I think the way while people were kind of looking at it as recently as a week ago. I believe it was on Tuesday that you know the lead and and in conjunction with the other Major North American sports panel putting New Measures. About how the media would interact with players. You know they're out to keep a certain distance between players during interviews and that there wouldn't be no more scrums I'd access everything would be kind of a press conference type setting and again. That was all seen as a preventative. Measure to keep the players distanced. So that's Tuesday on things by this time we're really escalating. Really think was sort of you know where where a lot of news is really coming out and the pictures getting more grim and so on as of Wednesday afternoon the Board of Governors of the leaks representatives from each of the franchise are kind of represented. The owners of each of the franchises themselves were on conference calls in hand and trying to come up with a plan and at that point the plan. Wise try to keep playing games but maybe one to limit fans or maybe role you also game is supposed to be in Boston. Concerns about it out. Great maybe the game can be played in Boston and Detroit. It'LL BE BOSTON DETROIT. Sorta thing road game until Home Game. So you know again. It's sort of like half measures but when newly found out a player was positive then they their hands were forced because if he kind of you know the NBA is such a small community and says his travelling circus tall man. You know they they are kind of bounce around the continent gone and you. Do you know somebody on twitter. She did an exercise like this. And show that if you only need to go back is about five or six days and you see all the players that go bare played against and then all the players. Those players played against any almost entirely covered within a five day span. Certainly ten days so at that point you know it. Writing was on the wall that they you know they couldn't simply couldn't continue because you don't know who else is in fact good and it's turned out one other player it's been infected with the jazz and all the teams that have been a better played the jazz including the Toronto Raptors in the past ten to fourteen days are now kind of are now being tested so tell me what that means for the raptors in particular because they played the jazz and what it means for sports in Canada well as it relates to the raptors. I mean you know it's just a kind of a complete one eight You know they played in Utah Monday night and I was sort of the end of the longest folks up to the season and you know the raptors were to form their short handed goals. Whatever reason not to win the game getting there on the road and played the four or fatigue and all the rest of it and You know their usual kind of plucky courageous thing and won the game and and came home on the on a red eye. Charter came after the game. So theraflu red eye type flight landing in Toronto early Tuesday morning and I'll be right and they weren't scheduled to play again until this coming Saturday. So they had a few days off which is right there in the NBA schedule that you got consecutive days off and You know a couple of the coach. Nick nurse had had his own into this charity scheduled to the hotel to in our other player charity events and all that went off without a hitch around nine thirty pm ever getting -CATIONS and The of what's going on and by you know by midnight a number of players are good number of the players had contested at a Toronto Hospital. The all the traveling party with the Raptors so broadcasters medical personnel seems security personnel You know there's a party for fifty people They all were required. They've been tested. My understanding most have today and so they're just waiting for the results of that. I think my understanding is should take twenty four hours from the time the test and you know and that'll dictate next move. Seventy this in the media term advised to Not only quarantine but isolate. So you know. It's sort of isolate themselves within else but the expectation is you know about your community or your home you know and just kind of hope for the best regarding the outcome of these tests. But it's you know it's a it's a massive development as it relates to the

NBA Storylines Down the Stretch

"Doris Burke is an NBA analyst for ESPN so doors the All star break is over and NBA. Games are back. We wanted to talk to you. About what surprised you so far this season. And how you see the last couple of months shaping up as we enter the homestretch before the playoffs. Let's start in the East right where there is an unequivocal number. One team in Milwaukee they have the best record in the NBA and they are destroying teams winning by an average margin of victory of more than twelve points per game now of the eleven teams that have had a double digit margin of victory over the course of a season. Eight have gone on to win it. All Doris. Is there something that stands between Milwaukee and the NBA Finals? Yeah this is a great question. So in their eight losses the one thread that is consistent throughout those are teams are averaging sixteen point nine threes and philosophically. Their priority is protect. The paint. First and foremost they are so elite. At that that we have not seen this kind of rim protection in the modern NBA. With the possible exception of Spurs team that had both Tim Duncan and David Robinson but the fact of the matter if a team gets hot and really can create shot opportunities then. I think that they can be beat. The other thing that happens is your and you saw in the All Star game. Jaanus is the first player to go twenty five and eleven back to back all star Games but he was over to note points in the fourth quarter because they did playoff teams. We'll do they set up a wall and they said somebody else is going to beat us so well. No one's really doubting the bucks at this point. I think there is still a lot of skepticism about the number two seed in the east the Toronto Raptors. I mean after losing finals. Mvp Kawhi Leonard. They were not seen as favorites coming into this year yet. They have the same record right now that they had at this point last season doors one hand the raptors have been under five hundred against winning teams but on the other they had a lot of. Are we underestimating them? While I'm definitely giving them punchers chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals and a punchers chance to come out in the past historically particularly when Demar Derozan Kyle lowry. Were on the team together. What we knew was they understood how to win in the regular season but they're always seemed to be this level of doubt in their minds when the calendar turn to April but the fact of the matter is. They changed that a year ago with championship. There is a different feel a different presents a different countenance about the entire group and yes unequivocally the record versus plus five hundred versus minus five hundred is concerning but let's remember that their top six guys including Serge Ibaka. Who's having the Best Year of his career? Kyle lowry Markelle Saul Fred Van Bleed. Norman Powell Pascal them. All six of those guys have missed at least ten games so I don't know that we have the clearest picture the other thing working in their favors they have one of the best coaches in the league. Nick nurse wears that head coaches mantle with ease. Why because he's been calling the shots for the vast majority of his career. In any number of circumstances his creative he's fearless. He's a little bit irreverent. And I'm telling you mean ah I give them a punchers chance to get to an east finals and a punchers chance to get out. Did you see this coming at all? Doors not even close and this is the question really ultimately. Do they have enough offense in what you're seeing is to me. What appears to be this grooming of Pascal? Ceac him of all right. You gotta go get your own in those minutes and a playoff circumstance where you don't care whether it's a mid range to a fall away jump shot a jump shot under duress of excellent defense. What matters is I need to put the ball in the basket right now because this game is teetering on our control or there's and we've got to have one and you're watching Pascal. Can he deliver in the postseason? He's been excellent in the regular season. I can't wait to see a play out. I think it feels right now. Like you've got the bucks in a tier of their own and then you've got the raptors celtics heat kind of swirling around each other. There was a feeling ahead of the trade deadline that the heat could vault to that number. Two spot perhaps even contend with the bucks if they really went all in and added Gala Nari. They didn't they did add Igwe Dolla. Do you think that's enough? You know the the last prism through which I saw. Andre Gonzala was a man who was battling an Achilles in the playoff series and seemed to be showing the signs of some age. But what I know. Unequivocally is this man from a basketball intellect standpoint. According to Kerr is one of the smartest in the history of the League. He has got championship. Dna He's got positional versatility on the defensive end that basketball intellect and the ability to process information quickly and to do it under the spotlight of the playoffs. He has all of that. I'm anxious to see how he changes the dynamic the Miami Heat. You know this. They're going to play hard defensively every single night. They're going to mix in one of the most effective zones we see in today's NBA and Eric's bolster is outstanding coach. So right now sitting in that fourth spot how far Jimmy Butler can take them. That'll be interesting. Those young guys. Right Duncan Robinson Tyler Hero Kendrick Nunn all those guys who have performed so well in the regular season when the calendar switches. Can you win with them? Let's see

No Kawhi? No problem. The Raptors are still showing why they're champs

"How insane would it be if the Raptors won the title this year without Kawhi? I mean that we would be talking about that as one of the greatest this championships in the history of sports. I think if your best player leaves your team like I'm kind of rooting for it to happen like I. I love this team play hard. I think they have every single player on their team. I trust in big moments. It's insane and a lot of those guys are young guys. They're undrafted guys like Vanfleet has taken a whole another step to the point. Where like we were talking about yesterday? Rick I take van flee every single time over de Ngelo Russell. I think family. That dude is a beast. I love that guy. He's a he'll be a free agent. I assume he's going to come back in the future. But what do you I mean what do you think about this the team I mean. Obviously you're still very high on them. I think we would you put them. Would you put them on an even footing with the bucks come playoff time because of their history because of them winning the title last year. And because of this winning streak streak I would I would and the danger is do they have. I don't know quite have a Jaanus but possible. Siachen doc can can is a version of that a replica of that and they just what I really like about them. Aside from their collective active experience is the versatility of the roster. You just mentioned it like they can play big and be very very good as as good as anybody not like Philadelphia's size doesn't make them flinch in the lease and yet if they WANNA play small. They are comfortable doing doing that as well. And I also for all of the talent like this is this is the ingredient that I think people miss is that they all have to share last year and they all had their opportunity to step up and they did at various moments so they understand understand the dynamic and the chemistry that goes into winning a championship that there is no other team that can boast host that right now in the league this is why I liked them from the beginning and it was Siachen. Had to take another step van Vliet had to take another step but I saw them where they were in the arc of their careers that I said it's possible there. We haven't seen the best of them yet. I mean maybe we have but there's the potential that they could get better so so for all those reasons that's why that's why I agree with the IT'd be a great story. I just like to see the raptors in the clippers in the finals for juicy of the story lines and I think they match up with the clippers and the clippers. Have that one question that I have. which is you know now that you have all the pieces I think they have the best composition in the Western in conference? But can you. Are they going to have the chemistry. Is everybody going to Understan- and this is how I contribute. And contribute to the utmost in this way A.. And that's what's GonNa make us that's GonNa put us at our best. I feel as if the Toronto Raptors they don't have they don't have to discover that they know how that works works and that understanding is I think just invaluable for any team.

"toronto raptors" Discussed on The Full 48

"The country find some common ground between Democrats and Republicans and then lead lead the way a leadership. Mike will get it done. I'm Mike Bloomberg candidate for president. And I approve. This message paid for by Mike Bloomberg Berg Twenty twenty. You remember where you were and how you found out that I was leaving. Yeah I was in a club. Actually Think Susana Club is a cargo as one of my best friends Bachelor weekend so we went out and it was funny was sitting there ethical and my phone and Detects comes to I write it takes. Everybody heard about is the gown founded the Mike the DJ's he's giving shout the whole leaf rather than here so then like the text come through from Hawaii. And he's FELLAS. I'm leaving whatever. One second goes by everybody. False start. Lighten up Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding so literally as present on his texts debt. Probably they sent it the press in audits at the same time like like the news. The News went out right all at the same time he did. They did a great job. Keeping Undergrad so I think it all went out at the same time are we got architects. I did news when out here comes the guy on the Mike. Okay is going to La. Uh so all the net till we had we had Good time just you know it was cool. We appreciate them for what he did. And and you know I like the fact that he Texas before did it whether he had to do that or not. I thought that was pretty cool. Do you wish on his way they weren't they didn't what the entire club Denison. All just all turn towards you felt that way felt that way not could have been in my own mind signed or or not but it definitely felt that way And obviously had to deal with everybody coming up to you like hey quiet leaving. Yeah I know yeah I'm aware yeah you move on and you start to think about what that means for you and and what that means for the next year and and you start to turn your mind into a different place in India ready in the movie version of this. Dj would literally do the record. Scratch quite wise leaving. It wasn't maybe we were somewhere else. But I don't think people was that lockdown goes as big of a deal there did hit you emotionally at all. I mean we often you know like I know he was only there a year and every team got relationships are different. Everything else but does does a hit you on any kind of emotional level or is it just. We are because we're also used to the idea one that the NBA A is a business as cliche goes but also that it's common now for guys to go there were certainly tons of speculation about L. A.. And everything so I guess us on some level. It probably wasn't that big of a shock but did you feel any kind of level of like. Oh Shit like I can't believe the files. MVP's walking away or is it is it. Does it feel more just a kind about pragmatic we're on to the next. It wasn't that big of a deal. I think you know they drew it out quite a bit right so I think there's there's a little cabinet miles there so I think throughout that process it Kinda was anticlimactic a little bit for for me at least like smoke. There's fire something's going on in between here like I wouldn't be surprised if he leaves. I think for the most part the common belief was how could you leave. That's kind of what the thought process was like all right. Yeah he might leave. I could see why he will leave. But I got to see it first so one. That actually happened like them. Okay you know he did and The more surprising thing was the Padras thing right so that was like so it goes from Korea going to La then boom like wait. What is so then you start to put everything together? They are cool like the guy wanted to go home and he wanted to. You know do his own thing in and how they put it together was cool for them. So yeah you wish them. Well no and I was like it wasn't it wasn't that big of a deal You know he was there a year we did feel like I built a solid friendship karate with him during the second second half of the year and obviously he was super important to us when a championship. But we want so like that. Was the number one goal anything after that was we knew it. I knew what it was. He didn't ask to go to Toronto. He never chose to go there but Definitely to my hat to them for for the year that he it was. Yeah we were talking a little bit earlier and before we start recording him just about you know. Media Narratives Jared and I were talking about things get get fixed two guys whatever and so like the story sorry for probably the rest of your career which will still be many more years to come and be like well Fred Van Bleed who was undrafted and then over whatever and it's always this kind of story of exceeding expectations which is not a bad cliche narrative to have a fix to you because it means you're you're constantly outpacing what anybody else could have expected. Do you like it that way. Does that get old. Because it's like everybody who gets in this league your elite just to get here we all lose track of that because compared to some of you guys in this league others there's a big span and that for four hundred fifty players but do you. Do you enjoy that aspect of it because again this season you got career career highs across the board. Nobody saw coming what you did in the postseason. You just. We're at this whole the level that that was a really fun ride and now it's okay now it's just even the next step step is not just. It's not just filling the gap of it's you and a bunch of guys. How enjoyable is that to constantly? Just as soon as everybody feels like they gotta beat on. You Know Fred van lead who was undrafted and then await there's going to be five more sentences about all the other stuff he just did. I mean is great. I think that a good position GonNa be and like I could complain. Everything is at some point to ask your question but I mean this is. This is where I'm comfortable at and and that just to be honest I don't want your hype Don't I don't want it. I promise you I don't want it. I'm not don't fit the algorithms. I'm not click. Click Bait I don't ever want to be and I don't know how many of us are off. It is but I think that yeah. I think like I'm cool with where I'm at and it's a constant reminder that nobody will ever believe in you like you believe in yourself and that's something that I've come to realize because I've had to and and this is like no matter what I do. There's always another ceiling to break through. And you know that's fine I don't live for other people's ACKKNOWLEDGEMENT or praise or whatever the case may be not doing joy get respect from my peers and people that I respect but as far as that like I'm I'm very very comfortable being quote unquote underdog and being in that the only thing that gets annoying now is so mainstream of thing like like especially with social media. Everybody wants to come from the struggle and everybody wants to be underdog everybody wants to overcome is like talking about top. Five picks or overcoming miniver. See like come on man. That's like a sorry cheap like narrative. I mean so being thrown into all of that Kinda gets watered down a little bit but you know this is this is my story has been written so far and I wouldn't have and the way a couple of people mentioned this. Just the idea that you have this like ultimate confidence in yourself ultimate belief in yourself. Where does that come from? Where where is there anything just in terms of the you know your career path long before the NBA? And we're just as as a kid is. There's something that kind of instilled that in you that okay not getting drafted or any other of the obstacles pickles. They get came up early. Wouldn't because some people they might throw off the course right for you because of this ultimate belief so where where does that draw from a deep deep question because this is a lot like I mean you start from the beginning of had unbelievable family and support system now always pumped me up and built me up and told me that you know whatever I wanted to do I could do. I remember from as early as I can remember. I always told my mom wanted to be an NBA and she never not wants to say anything other than we'll go do it. and like that builds up a kid right and so from new age and then you you get into a little deeper the story of how grew up and what I had to go through certain things like that like I always had to be sure myself just and in my personality analogy and my character is just I really believe in what I believe in and then I've had to stand on that and you can't walk around my City where I grew up. And not be that because you're gonNA get exposed and so all of those things go into who you are as a player and then once I got older like I work my ass off man like I really put work in every single summer drought this season day in day out. I put a lot of work and so I have no choice but to go out there and feel like I know I can do because I've done it. I've done it when nobody's watching. I'd do it in gym every day in the summertime and so it's no different when you get out on. The court is just is basketball with a lot of people watching. And if you create that pressuring Your Head and you'll stumble a little bit but if you just go you know let it fly and you see what happens. Can you be able to live with the results. I've heard too that you were a guy who was a pretty vocal leader on this team even from early just smile. It's like there's like that doesn't happen. That often write a guy comes in young. And you know there's veteran cast around them so again like there's obviously something in you that I felt like I don't have to prove to these guys. I I know who I am one of about Did that catch guys off guard. Maybe maybe but I think I mean from day one. Everybody's pretty accepting of me like I had to give Kyle DEMARCO's guys credit. You know for allowing me the floor. You know this before I I was even playing. I wasn't even getting any minutes and I have those guys ear and I could speak to them and tell them different things that I saw from the bench and they would listen and and maybe they were. They were blocking out there hit but they never disrespected me to say shut up like they always at least acted like they were taking it and so that gave me the confidence to a Q.. Speaking I've always been a natural born leader. I think that's something as as in you and There's a certain glow or at that attracts people to you that I've always always had and so obviously you know you can only lead so much without playing. You know to be honest and so once ministered to go up and started to be able to approve it and be accountable on the floor day in and day out. I think that that's allow me to grow as a leader within my teammates and also with the coaches just to to have with a voice that people respect and I don't over use it and I try to pick spa but I think when I speak people. Listen for the most part. And that's something I'll take a lot of. That's probably my greatest trait. I think you know that never gets talked about because we like to focus on tangible things but nothing. My leadership qualities are probably at the top. Who've who've of WHO I am as a player and you'd have to have pretty good leadership qualities and communication skills especially in a group like this and it's especially like guys like Mark Assault and Sergio have been around a awhile and kyle is not exactly a shrinking violet? Yes so you beg. I guess you've got to be pretty skilled at it for that kind of group to listen to one of the still one the younger guys in the locker for sure I mean. Give those guys credit to to a street. I'm not saying I'm the greatest leader that's ever walked the planet but like those guys it's a give intake and I think that you know you have to be accountable yet to be a good friend and a good teammate. And and then you know you figure out the rest and we we disagree all the time honors arguments that news blow ups and then you know you move on and figure it out after but I think the number one we WANNA win. We really care about winning. I we all I want to be great in our in our own rose and then everything else falls under and I think just the honesty. That's my you know that helps me. A lot is just be honest and not being afraid to speak my mind also picking my spots. You know the truth doesn't need to be off time And so that's something that I've learned as I've gotten older..

So sweet sow lovely just like really you know like showing both like that. It was so great like implying. Like oh sorry missed it knee and then also Like showing that they were so sad that Tanya wasn't there but not saying that they were said that wasn't there it was great. Yes and then you're gonNA comes in now. I don't know what you're doing She's going through a whole housewives trajectory just in five minute like she just changes every episode. You know she went from being completely crazy drunk driving to start a fi- to Massey's like a blunt and she's talking a little baby voice. Now yes you. Heidi Montag get so strange. It's like it's a Heidi Montag wing like like manufactured by I I don't know what's happening with that thing. Yeah that is that. It's the cutest week but her whole personality has changed right now. She's like ultra. This personality. Agnes wet still not really working. Sorry but you know I do I do. I will give her credit for even trying with this Casca because this is a hard cast to break into there's a personalities well I mean basically you avant had sort of like an extended cameo moment last as last season I mean she had a one. She was in one episode and I think that they probably like brought her back for another scene because she was so popular. Because everyone loves like. I'm that bitch that bitch from Clark and and so everyone you know I think. She made such a splash at the futures. Like over into a scene late in the late in the season Sonata like okay. Everyone likes the Alana Ana. We are putting her onscreen. So she's like ooh. This is my moment. I'm like recycling cans and I'm saving up for a nice new WIG and I'm GonNa make a splash again like going to earn a spot you know. And so she's trying artists yes. She's even kind of quoting herself already. Because she's that Bitch Clark and she got a jacket. bedazzled sold bitch. Button doesn't know it's that bitch like quote yourself correctly. You know as much as that Mitch. Yeah it's also like not fun John When you take ownership of the mockery like that like I guess is probably healthy for you. But it's like when Colorado start saying goodbye kyle and then started claiming that she's the one who made data viral because she and resnick drove by Sir and like yelled at a bus boy or something like that like no. You're not make viral. It was podcasters. Like two of US and others in our in our in our podcast circle. Who Made Enviro? It was not you cow and he made it viral and set it. I just I felt like she was trying to rob it from us. Honestly not like that Kyle owned by God in a world where Kyle with actually care. Oh come here and let us out and then and then when people got mad at Kyle for trying to like take ownership of it and she actually had the balls to then do the SOB story about like. Oh she's been teased and this and that and she was just trying to take ownership of it because it's been really hard for her and like you know she was just trying to turn a negative into a positive. Ah Shut up Kyle. He has shut up. Kyle Goodbye Kyle was bullied by goodbye. Kyle I mean I also have to make a make an announcement just where like all on the same page here. I have a really annoying. You ever get like a canker sore on your tongue like those little those little canker sores. I have a tiny little on the very very very tip of my tongue and like every time I talk it like my tongue gets Mitee ZAP ZAP ZAPS APPS APP. So it's like making me talk in weird ways so it sounds like at any point. I have a second candy my mouth whatever. It's just me trying to have canker sore pain prevention experiences and so I apologize if it sounds weird it over here on this end. We'll have to give credit. It does not slow you down when in super. How thank you for that Rodney? I appreciate that sentiment. I I sound like that every day because my targets for my math seth you know yeah well might. The tip of my tongue is like a little swollen too so just going through a lot over here. Okay and now. We're talking about Colin Richards. And I'm just triggered it gave you it gave you a little Pulsar on your tongue and Michael was wearing a little red fedora. To make it worse well to make your cold sore worse. Let's just put it in Nevada it's a congresswoman story please. Left please not disseminate that. Sort of Information Asian Sarfaraz Kinkel Sore. It's your Kyle. Richards Kinkel Sore. It's cholera as a canker sore. Not a Kangol store it just like the word Kinkel is dammit. We're going to be here twenty hours today. The point is they get on the Fan Twenty Times in this episode. That's all they do to like. There was one point where they literally got out of the van for two minutes. Like okay ladies. Let's go back in the van and they went back on the fucking van. There were more scenes shot inside that van that an entire season of the amazing race. So they go to a parade for the King and Queen flutes. Yeah I love this. By the the way it's every time we see all this mania around The carnival I just think back to when we did the season preview and I stupidly got onto this strange range soapbox for Mike Carnival Toronto. That's Brazil's thing and I like a- like went above and beyond declaring why. This is the most hilarious thing ever that that Toronto would claim and meanwhile it's like huge and I'm an idiot so every time I see just like laugh at just my own. It really is so huge. I well maybe Tani is just saying it's huge because excited about everything but then no. It's really wow I I thought I think that's why I thought it was. Of course Tanya says Oh. Toronto has a huge carnival. Whatever Tanya Toronto but it's no no it's it's like huge yeah and people? People in Canada are so nice. No one even complained. No one did maybe we got a mild correction. Now it gets okay. You know he'll figure it out one day I didn't even know I didn't even know what it was or the difference. I spend the Rio Hotel in Vegas. My parents used to love to go there and they would do a a carnival parade every single by the time you know like every hour on the hour thing to me is again as aw I just think Kathy Lee Gifford on Carnival cruise lines days ago. That's the carnival. I'm talking about So Mimi is is trying with us. She's wny's trying this thing where she's like. I'm just going to pretend I never did anything. Wrong everybody's being mean to be. I'm GONNA be hilarious. And she's like love the carnival shaking my bomb bomb for years. Oh not just. Every time she came on I just showed up so they get back in the van they head back to the hotel and then some of the women go to sleep but then a bunch Reconvene in a newsroom it's basically marlow and candy candy the only full time. I'm cast member talking to them. You need at this point and you're gonNA and now how come you else old E. which is funny. Because it's on my my squeak but you're right. I'm not I'm not going to. I will not get on soapbox about this about quite loud now. Mouse aren't allowed. They're very quiet. That's how you don't know you have them until else. Chew late in their overrunning everything giving children you know the bubonic plague rats louder. You're rats are definitely louder than mice. There's bigger guess. What horses are louder than rats? So Nina's like what I didn't didn't even though you guys were talking about it this you know I was so lost I mean I guess it was something about a proposal She's exhausting okay. We're five minutes listen to the actual episode and I'm exhausted from her so candies like well. Why would can you try and ruin this surprise for Cynthia And she's like. Yeah you know ah than. They moved over to the fight of Kenya. Marlow Kenya bring in the marching band. Tomorrow's edged party. Yeah no no it was the whig party can bring the edge. She was yeah. Can you was bringing the edge of marching bad into the WHIG party. Yes yes. They're talking about that. which then do you ever have to stop sometimes just triumphed? You're saying like why are we even talking about like an like about thirty seconds ago. We're talking about the comparative loudness of mice and then fifteen seconds before that carnival all so You know the thing is so they're just talking about that and this then leads to sneaky and who is doing the recording because candy feels like. She's stuck in the middle because Nina told candy that there was a recording. The candy told Cynthia and now this whole thing is happening. It's a scandal that truly no one cares about like I have passing interest in it like at this point. I just WanNa know but like you can tell them. No one really cares because no. No one's like screaming fighting about it care. 'cause I WANNA record conversations SL- how do you do that because it's very difficult. I've tried different ways because of how we record this podcast Koran skype right so obviously we know that way but I was like habit. How do you do it from your iphone? What's what's away but you have to sign up for all these different things and then people get notified if you're recording so anyway point is whoever did it has some very sophisticated voice memo? I think it was just like I assume it. Just Giovanna on a voice memo the voice memo APP and just because it was in person I only was over the phone. Oh well never mind. I strike that from the record. Okay so candy. Basically asked any if she record like like who recorded the conversation and he needs like flaming hot cheetos and just like opens opens her mouth. You know how many he does that thing. Just in general was she like like squid. She doesn't twitter is like closes. Her eyes and does like an exaggerated open mouth thing and her lips flat now too so. She's doing that but she had like flaming hot cheetos like the sort of like grotesque image likeness read like Semi Chew Saliva. We like Cheeto. Yeah Yeah meany opens her mouth. And you see the depth of pal basically so then Nino I have have forgotten that this was such a pet peeve of mine because I think I actually mentioned this last season as something I really disliked about any actually something I despise and she does. Does it again right now. which is that? There's a knock on the door. And he tells Yovani or as she calls her Khanna she's like Takata. Go get that as I mean Yana. Whatever your name is which is hilarious? She goes she she tells US business like someone get the door and he does that all the time anytime. There's a knock meaning will not get the door she sits. She's you're just as far from the door as you'll von Ahn is your room. Open your own damn door. She makes everyone always get the door all the time. She's always Boston around. People do shit like that. Yeah she was calling her savannah because one of the girls last week couldn't remember her name so of course it's ooh Tania's very excited the She's just very excited to be there before she gets in any trouble..

"All righty, everybody. Welcome back in final time, here, our number one is absolutely flown by Mike Wilson. And we did talk a lot of NHL hockey in major league baseball. So that will definitely mean that our number two is gonna be heavily into the NBA basketball what we've got to talk about the finals and quiet Leonard, and obviously, the Toronto Raptors being there for the first time and making the most of it at least in game one game two is a little bit later today. So we'll have a little bit better idea of what could happen in the series after game two but gotta be impressed with the run that they're on right now. Mike. No, you're absolutely do. And you know what wise just plain out of his mind? He and meeting that team and everybody else's coming with them. So it's been fun to watch with Kawai. And I think everybody expected this out of Colli for the last few years, but he showing it now. And that's the important thing you know, it's interesting. The guys just so calm, cool collected whether it's on the basketball floor, whether it's in a press conference, I, I really think that quite Leonard would be a really interesting guy to get to know. I mean, he's, he's like the man of mystery don't you agree like he's so mysterious. But yet at the same time, just just very, very the, the guy's amazing. I mean, just an unbelievable talent out there on the floor man. No. I would I would love to see him in Boston drain. I don't think that's gonna happen. But no, I think right now he's probably the best way player. We got out he'd in the NBA now. He is fantastic. Really fun to watch the way that the Toronto Raptors have been playing, and they're putting their Mark so far at least game, one of the NBA finals went to them and game to. They're going to be favored again, a great chance. I think to win this series to be honest with you. So we'll get into our number one in the books, that means our number two on the horizon. Keep a close everybody. He's Mike Wilson.

"Show here on this radio dot com. Do you agree with me that Kawai has been proven correct by not playing San Antonio? He didn't wanna get Isaiah Thomas. He basically the organization called him a liar said he was Jacob it, Tony Parker said he was Jacob it and basically called him a dog saying he should become. He used to come back, and he should be playing. Well. Of course, he didn't wanna go back there because he knew the injury was more serious. He knew the San Antonio medical staff was incorrect anyone to New York and got a second opinion. And he said, hey, you know what I'm gonna take their word for it because I just don't feel right? Now, we've got the Golden State Warriors going up against the Toronto Raptors and it's looking like Kevin Durant not gonna play in game one at least and I would imagine these not gonna play in the first couple of games and maybe not entire series. But DeMarcus cousins, if you saw the, the, the YouTube video the other day he was in a full court five on five scrimmage with his teammates with the warriors. And while he didn't look like he's absolutely a hundred percent full speed. He looked good out there. He was getting up and down the court. He was putting the ball in the basket making three point shots. That would be, you know, in my opinion, that's valuable man to come off the bench in the series against the Toronto Raptors. He's not going to start because looney when playing so well for the warriors, getting double doubles and clean and the garbage off the boards. And, and getting lobbed dunks off the passes from his teammates. He looks good so far getting up and down the court defending rebounding blocking shots. But if you can bring in a and at one point DeMarcus cousins, I just last year was the best center in the NBA before he tore his achilles. He was going twenty seven and twelve with the New Orleans pelicans and they made the playoffs. They swept Portland in the first round without him. They pushed the warriors hard and round two who knows had he been playing. What would have happened there? But I bring him in off the bench in limited minutes. I it's just it's just another weapon for the warriors now he's not gonna be at full speed. I haven't defensively if he gets them in pick and rolls if he's not a hundred percent yet, it could be a little bit of a problem. But I tell you, what Marcus all is so glacier, slow, these days, such a defensive liability offense. He ain't much better. He can hit that occasional three point shot. But he's the guy I just don't know how much he's going to play in this series because Golden State's gonna pick and roll him to death. And he just doesn't have the foot speed anymore. I would imagine the raptors are gonna try to go small here. But I think DaMarcus. Cousins can be very, very effective weapon here. Coming off the bench with the Golden State Warriors, and who knows who knows about Kevin Durant for the rest of the series. When we come back, I wanna praise Nick nurse the head coach of the Toronto Raptors especially in comparison to his predecessor Dwayne. Casey, who did an absolutely horrendous job, coaching the Toronto Raptors in the playoffs the last three years and, and praised Nick nurse for the job. He did until you why. But he can't coach that way against the warriors or they're gonna get swept stays with your radio. Great. This jet situation. It just gets better and better by the day as somebody that doesn't, particularly, like the jets and somebody that appreciate good dysfunction across Leah that doesn't really make sense..

"NBA writer for Bleacher report my guest today. Danny green of the Toronto. Raptors formerly, of course of the San Antonio Spurs. Danny kind enough to spend a little time on a Saturday afternoon. You'll be listening to this probably on Monday. But the raptors were here Friday night in Brooklyn took a tough loss to the nets in overtime, and Danny sticking around for a couple of extra days or skews me one extra day here because he's putting on the inaugural battle in the apple two high school tournaments here in New York and very cool event. Danny stuck around to help get that off the ground putting it on with some of his partners and kind of then to spend a little time with us here in studio at Bleacher report, we covered all of the the usual basis. Of course, the trade how he processed that back in July has his own podcast inside the green room where he was able to. Talk about that almost immediately. An interesting moment for Danny green. Because of course, his career started out with a very challenging path being cut a few times have spending time in the D league and overseas, and then to to finally settle them with San Antonio and seven years later to be traded from the team where he finally made it and want to championship obviously, very difficult, but the transition to Toronto for him and Kawhi Leonard has been almost seamless the raptors have been phenomenal early in the season. Those guys both playing great Kyle Lowry breakout season from PASCAL Ceac him and rookie coach Nick nurse off to a fantastic start to his career there. So great insights from Danny green about all of that and about Nick nurse and how he's doing so far we talk a lot about pop and the things that, you know, about pop from from a player perspective that I think a lot of us on the outside. Don't get a full view of in can't really appreciate. And and we talked a little bit about co about Danny being the kind of the the go-to Kawai whisperer not that it's a role that he wanted. But when you get traded with the guy, and you're spent that much time, and obviously not the easiest guy to read you kind of fall into that role. So we cover all that much more.

"Now looking at it on the other end from. The Toronto Raptors Toronto Raptors side of things certainly they got a lot better as good if the Rosen is, Kawhi Leonard is a better player than he is. Top three in the. NBA went healthy they just became a much better team than they were last year when they won fifty nine games last year and they're the number one, seed in the east You know you might lose them after a year it might be a, one year rental then. You, don't have order Rosen but you know. Nothing ventured nothing gained you've gotta take rich you've got a gamble here Jerry don't you I mean now they've. Got a better chance to get to the finals than they did a week ago I think that's the move, you have to make your the raptors I think Worthwhile gamble when you're, talking about a team that is going on about a six year run and they have yet to. Make it to the NBA finals and. You're right you go from having let's say tomorrow to Rosena somewhere between the. Twentieth and twenty fifth best player NBA you go to a bona fide top five guy if he's healthy if he's if he's still that same two way player that was all. Before the injury which there's really no reason why Kawai, at twenty seven years old should be. Back at that level that's a game, changer for the raptors they already, won fifty nine, games and, got the. Number one seed last. Year the reason that they. Got in the. Second round, because LeBron James is the boogeyman to them guess what the boogeyman is in the west and. Has to deal with Golden. State and now the east is wide. Open and You were the best team in the east last year and you, just traded up in, the deal with the Marta rose and and got a pretty nice ryobi's shooting guard and Danny green as well so you look at that team they. Got to maintain pretty much all of their debt and now you have a higher level, star to go with Kyle Lowry and all those other pieces I mean I look at it and. I say that it's going to be. One heck of a dog fight it's lean Gerardo Boston and Philadelphia in the. East and I think you could you could Toronto needs to do a little bit of more work and maybe still Adelphia needs to continue to mature a little bit but I. Would say that all three of those teams If one of them goes to the finals They have a good chance of making that an actual series with Golden State next year as opposed to what, we've seen the last two years from Cleveland Gary Moore from the Washington Post talking to MBA days with your. NBC's worth, and ABC sports radio dot com and.

"With the deal it sounds like more of a hiccup meanwhile in the nba after lots and lots of talk we talked about a lot quite leonard was traded today to the toronto raptors the trade sent leonard and danny green to toronto for demar derozan yaacob pertile pertile and a protected twenty nineteen first rounder heavily protected twenty nineteen first rounder and so quiet leonard finally moved but move to toronto and when gregg popovich when you when you take him off he will actually send you out of the country you're actually leaving america now jobs deport he was he right he had him deported essentially to yeah to another country to another country and so for toronto it's interesting it's an interesting gamble by masseur messiah jury who's one of the best executives in the nba i think it's worth the role of the dice basically what they're saying is will either get to the finals this year or blow it up right of quiet leaves will blow it up and that's fine because we probably need to blow it up anyway because they can't get there with kawai the didn't get there with the rosen they can't get there with kawhi obviously something's going wrong they they need to try something else and so after not the year coming up the following season they can get all this money off the books of choir goes and they're off of of kyle lowry and all that stuff but if the rosen was still there they wouldn't have nearly as much ability paul george has become a new template for what a smaller market team can try which is to trade for big star who's got one year left on his deal and hopefully get him comfortable with your culture with your gonna sation with your city and hopefully do some women and it's a reasonable gamble for toronto why not take a shot you've got a much better chance of competing with boss even with coli than you do with d'amoto rose there's no question and look this this team won fifty nine games this year they were the top seed in the eastern conference and by a lot of people's calculations it's not so much the rest of the conference that they struggle with it was lebron james lebron james owned them but he's gone so now it's a matter of are you better than philly are you better than boston and maybe i don't think anybody's necessarily me better than boston if kyri and hayward stay healthy but kyrie staying healthy is on a given yeah we we talked to ramona shelburne earlier and she clarified exactly how the lakers were involved in coli leonard talks tell you about that next i saw quite leonard we just mentioned traded to the toronto raptors and we talked to ramona shelburne a little while ago and we kept hearing the sort of the lakers were involved in trade talks like a concept concepts of traits yeah so what we eventually were able to suss out from ramona is this the spurs made the price so high that it was a non starter so the spurs basically said we want three of your young guys and three number one picks and the laker said that's ridiculous they never got to the point where we thought were they'd say okay how about just brandon ingram and just to number never got to that point the spurs made the impossible barrier in the very first call and there was nowhere to go from there in the same way they did with the philadelphia seventy sixers they said it's either ben simmons or it's nobody so the sixers all this talk about daria saray and robert covington was a nonstarter it was simmons or bust that's why toronto wound up with ellen same with celtics jalen brown they would not give up jaylen brown they demanded jalen brown jaylen brown wasn't going to be traded so the celtics were off the board toronto was it's almost as though they priced everybody out it's and it's strange to me because ultimately i get the whole thing you don't want to train them to lakers fine but if you can weaken the lakers and you think he's gonna go there anyway archer shooting yourself in the foot by not taking the best stuff that you can get if brandon ingram and kyle kuzma let's say that was the offer there you know and and and pick or kouzmin heart and that was the.

"The admitted go with the toronto raptors or the favorites to get quite leonard right now you're looking at the current odds there even money right now and people are starting to put some stuff together and here's a little brick in the wall damara rosen's instagram account has been a raced maybe he hit the wrong button i'll know what do i assuming it somewhere if he did it i've tried to race before tomorrow it's gone stan guys look and this is from zach lowe and he was saying this is just talking about straight of trade possibility the most logical all in play on the board is toronto offering derozen one of pascall siaka dhillon right jacob puddle an og and anobi and a future first round pick and so on so derozen would be the key piece going the other way that's what i was saying that the can't bring leonard in to put with the rosen and houma kyle lowry because would you i get in return i mean you talk about these guys whether it's total or on a new bayer siachen or any of these not or even a third of a fit you gotta get the more rosen in this his twitter account excuse me instagram is been wiped out wiped of everything a wife of toronto thing everything everything what that might be a button i rather here it was wiped of toronto things but if you took off your your little sisters recital some have and look full disclosure salads boy jason estrada dhamar trainer there in africa going to africa lit i was on that knob creek hard is weekend and they were telling me about they're going to africa maybe now so i'm texans try and find out some intel because i'll tell you the truth because it's all gone everything's everything's gone that tells me that maybe it's not what i think okay at least what vegas is trying to imply that look right that's the part that's weird it's it's all of it together the odds the fact that his name is throat in as the the leading piece of deal right there and then you know because it's your were almost always going to be wrong when you try to deconstruct the meaning behind somebody's social media stuff because it can mean a million different things but the timing of it is curious if nothing else yes we're didn't boogie do the same thing then boogie cousins wipe his and his wasn't exactly that they didn't give them offer he just didn't like what they were offering so the mars in a different position because if they're talking trade there talking trade but i didn't follow damara rosen on instagram but i'm sure there's some family friends maybe to clean sweep you just do away the baby with the water like yeah everything it's interesting is interesting you're right getting look i there's a time i follow too many people and then there's like either delete all or go to individually it gets to a point where you just like get it all out so i i understand that point but doesn't that's the new way of communication i guess that's weird you have to detri to be like a social media archaeologist deconstruct would own this stuff means pick pick up the phone and ask demar what's going on travis coming just like we just had an who's a super was he senior sneaker hey yes senior sneaker head and who would've talk by the way yeah right yeah who would have thought that there's a job his job he just left china y'all for a week and a half klay thompson he lives in portland next to the dita's of nike this job is to follow the stuff we think it's super cool yeah there's going to be a social media translator yeah a now analysts and yeah temperate or it has to be because that's athletes are communicating with the world in different ways kind of bring it all together with kawai and the offer that he got from nike slash jordan was put off by and then you go with social media presence which is virtually zero and they go together it's it's not just all got there's intrinsic value in these things real money plays in these when you do something like that it's not meaningless it's not in this piece of reading from it's like oh this is something seventh grade girl does when her friends hurt her feelings no it's not the.
