"It's no. You're not better without him. You have to do other things a collective assemblage of bodies have to come through for you. And that's a testament to Steve Kerr in this coaching staff, having these brothers bid kvamme looney hit all six of his shots last night. And Obama, the way y'all keep sleeping on Draymond green all you want to trae mongering is a special special player, particularly when he's composed, and he's not getting technicals cat. During mon- green is special Draymond green. I want you all four y'all one he Al right? He all right. Think about all the things that he doesn't a basketball did you watch him? If you watch this game last night, did you see Draymond green grab rebounds and pushed the ball up the floor? Like a point guard. Did you see some of the passes that he was making? Did you see the plays that he was orchestrated Kevin Draymond green? As far as I'm concerned if Dennis Rodman is in a hall of fame, y'all need to show Draymond green some more love because. No, he's not Rodman in terms of rebounding, but he defense he rebounds and he orchestrates your offense. Draymond green is a jump shot away. From being a perennial all star player. I'm talking about looking at him saying this brother special. This is something to be said about having a mindset and knowing what he knows and knowing what to do on a basketball court. And Draymond green is a brilliant basketball player. He just has a shot the ball. Well, which is why he needs to work on his jump shot in the off season. Religiously but I'm here to tell you something right now, the lack of respect that is shown Draymond green coached by the great Tom Izzo at Michigan state, and now the great Steve Kerr because I do think we've reached a point where we have to start calling Steve Kerr great. Enough's enough. I love my brother Mark Jackson. I hate the fact that he was he set up the foundation for the Golden State Warriors, and then was let go as much as I love Joe lak- and that's my man, I love, Joe Lakers only thing we disagree about, but there's no denying that Steve Kerr is great and that he's taking the bull by the horn. And he's elevated to go to State Warriors to the champions, that they are. Having when you look at all the things that they do, you know, trae Mon and staff, and Klay looking gas than Portland with Damian Lillard, and CJ McCollum. And I'm talking about Leonard, and I'm talking about Evan Turner. And I'm talking about all of these other guys that and Seth curry. Oh my God. I was so proud of that young man last night. But I'll get into that. And just a minute. My point is Portland was coming. And Golden State was really and they were down fifteen seventeen point. And then they came roaring back inside a two and a half minutes. That's how explosive they are. But Steve Kerr had to manage minutes. He had to give them the requisite rest. No one to put him back in no one amp up pressure. No one dollar back know who to insert know what their job responsibilities were. And how to utilize them. You can't say enough about the job to Steve Kerr's done just can't just can't. But if you think for one second that Draymond green doesn't deserve credit. You should be ashamed of yourself. He is a special special player. He doesn't look that way shooting. The basketball, did you see him drive into the lane off the dribble off? The dribble drive into the lane to see you're pushing the ball up the court. Did you see passes did you see how effective he was defensively along with rebounded and banging bodies when he's clearly undersized against all of these big bodies that is dream Ongeri? And a level of appreciation. That is not shown to him is actually disturbing for anybody that knows basketball, it should be because he's a brilliant basketball player. Trae Mont green is a jump shot away with healthy legs. Of course, gotta have those lakes healthy, but with those legs being healthy trae mon- green is a jump shot away from being considered a healthy a legitimate, bona fide perennial all star. He's that good. He's that good..

"I will come out and interview I make that commitment here on the show. You'll sit down with me, I will come out to interview, and we'll sip coffee in a cafe for two hours for lunch house that we use the word, bro. Bro. Grow breath, bro. Jason Jason breath, represent some awesome athletes, instead trae mon- created Klay Thompson, Russell Westbrook Rickie Fowler, marshawn Lynch, just huge names. What is the most fun or enjoyable aspect of working with people like this on a daily basis? To me. It's the it's the connection with them. And I love building the relationships with them and their families, but also the careers. I mean, if we really partner with the world's best, athletes and brands and properties to transform their careers as they go through the life cycle of an athlete or a company. So that when you look back, and you see some of the successes that we've had as a company our clients have had with us. It's very rewarding to to have that track record. I also think it's you know, every day is different. You could be stressful because every day is different and it's hard to plan. But it also gives you something to look forward to each day. Something that inspires you keeps your mind going. So you never get into a rut we've interviewed marshawn Lynch is former teammate at Cal. Justin, four set on the show. He was a great a great inter. View, and he was telling us all sorts of great things about marshawn Lynch, and his mindset, and I loved it too. I love to get your take on. What makes Russell Westbrook in marshawn Lynch, these incredible athletes kind of behind the scenes these sort of character traits. Let's go with Russell Westbrook. What what makes him so good on the court? And he just looked so intense. It's like a laser. I mean, I always tell people Russell is like, no other. He has this inner energy and passion and drive. That is extremely rare. Being a professional athlete. I'm the highest highest level is really hard. And it it has every day. You have to wake up and do the same thing at extreme high level. No matter what else is going on and very few athletes are able to do that over a ten year period. They have to have the same level pursuit to be the best for that long. And when you compare these top one point one percent, and Russell type athletes, it's really to me other worldly, and what they're able to do without, you know, major injury without exhaustion without you know, huge performance wings. It takes. I don't have it tell you that. I know I days where I'm tired my kids going home at night. Like it takes this. Unbelievable. Focus drive energy to do that. Well, the only way that you're going to build a get that energy is to use much kale. You cannot there, bro. Yeah. So is wash play with the raiders next next year. We know that we can we even talk about that is that. I talk about it. And I have no idea. Oh, wow. Okay. I was aggressive question to chase. It do you wanna take a quick break or to keep going?

"See this wide open all out attack of the Kansas City. Chiefs one of the highest scoring teams the National Football League this year points per game. The chiefs rank second they're averaging better than thirty six points a game. So it will be up to this raider d like shut down immediately here, and it is going to be a tall test. They have so many ways that they can attack you Andy Reid is probably one of the more creative offense or coordinators and the National Football League though. Even though he's relegated some of his call play responsibility. Former money-back Eric the enemy. This is something that this offense can do because they have weapons they can take chances. They can take and they have a quarterback was fearless in his ability and his ability drove down the field, and we will see a rookie back jury. Turn this kickoff. Trae mon- Smith out of central Arkansas for the chiefs as our opening kickoff is brought to you by lows pros in the know star. With lows to save on supplies. They need most from brands they trust to help. Get the job done on time and on budget. Visit Lowes for pros dot com for details. Beautiful afternoon here. The Oakland areas son is on temperature mid fifties. This afternoon, just a light breeze. The flags atop the goalposts are motionless right now. Of course, the kickers like that. And speaking for kickers, the rookie for the raiders Daniel Carlson out of Auburn has the ball on the t thirty five yard line. And as soon as the television crew gets out of their final commercial prior to the kickoff will be underway eagle and a great, Dan. Fouts hard next door's. And I worked many many games with Dan. Fouts back in back in the day. We covered a lot of college games together. We did the the waterboy salt the other Nedal TV was thinking about you. You look a young spry Brent Musburger. How about that? Yeah. He said to me shut up. Brent? Here we go. We're underway in Oakland. And the rookie picks it up with a two yard. I'd comes to the right and crosses the twenty yard line before he is stacked up their short of the twenty five yard line twenty Harris making risk stop. As we look at it. It looks like a PJ hall. Jonathan hankins are going to get the start at defensive tackle Justin Ellis is up in dress today. So we'll see how with their rotation. Joma homes will open up in the gun and he will motion Spencer ware back into the backfield is right alongside his right hip and firing on the first play of the game complete forty tied in Kelsall fumble on the reception still loose waiters. Dive on it. Raiders recovered the fumble Nick Nelson. Jumps on it. And it'll be a raider football field. Well, you know, what started out looks to be a disaster because Travis Kelsey was covered Patrick Mahomes in this run pass option. What they do is. They elected you to try to go to the running back Spencer where or they have a double slammed between tyreek hill, and and and and Travis Kelsey on the right hand side. He saw that Kelsey was was covered. But even though care Kelsey was covered. He's still through a back shoulder throw. And he got in there. Kelsey caught it, but he was loose with the ball raiders had a big time turnover. That's what you need to scan. Doug, Martin number twenty eight will get the start in the backfield. Barry unusual for Kelsey takoff the football up. He's one of the more reliable tight ends in all of football. The raiders will have a first down on their own forty four yard line while it's what's what's concerning right here for the raiders is at the reviewing it until they give because all the turnovers go upstairs now they confirmed. It was a turnover. Kelsey was actually yelling to satellite. He was down. We're trying to make the argument for it. Never trust a player like just take. The video. So under these center, we'll be Derek Carr. Doug, Martin is deep and he'll get the hand off coming to the left side breaks one tackle and gets to the forty five yard line Hitchings with a stop for the chiefs. You know, we made mention of what this team is on offense the Kansas City Chiefs, but on defense, they're pretty doggone stout. One guy who doesn't get enough. Attention to my opinion is Chris Jones number ninety five. He has wrecked havoc all season wide receiver screen with Jordy Nelson out of bounds on the far side about the forty seven yard line fuller. The defender there for the chiefs right now the Kansas City. Chiefs are challenging the Oakland Raiders. They know they've had struggles with receivers to throw downfield load in the box. Now raiders who are traditionally good screen team. But they have to do things that go basically sideline to sideline. Expect them. Use a lot of those tunnels screens and sweets try to stretch for perimeter of the chiefs defense third down. And that means.

"Anyway, if they're fractured. Maybe that actually could happen. But I think macro it is a big problem. I the most fascinating thing to me is in Mason. And I were talking about earlier is what do you do if you're Golden State, and you let's say your convince that Kevin Durant is leaving. You trade him do calls. Do you do it? I mean, he's Kevin Durant. I mean, there'd be nothing wrong, George it. I wouldn't criticize their strategy. If it was simply, I would trade him milk. It win one more championship. And then see what happens. But I'm with you. I think I would trade I would trade him. I I remember I don't think they will do I've they won't. I've I've said I've been very consistent with that. I remember when the whole LeBron thing the first time in Cleveland where people were like, oh is he gonna leave is? And I was like if you really think he's gonna leave trade him. I think that Pat Riley messed up because I think he had an inkling that he'd leave. And he you know, he says he was caught off guard. And maybe he did. But I it felt like he was gone that last year. So I would trade any of those guys in if you have the opportunity they don't have a no trade clause. Go ahead and do do and Mason as the straight. I knew he was going to Miami two and a half months before he was going. Yeah. And if I knew other people knew more important than me, and I thought the way they handled that was ridiculous Cleveland was so convinced he was coming back. It's like it's like their wife was cheating on them right in front of the money. Wouldn't really wouldn't look at it. And here's the reality. I mean, if you tell me they're going to keep rent you win the NBA championship. He leaves at the end of the season. You've won an NBA for sure I get it. But you could probably still win an NBA championship without them. Honestly. Really? Yeah. I think it's very possible. I mean, look they are when the guy that really is the straw that stirs the drink there's Steph curry they are there's a number out there right now. I I don't remember I'm telling my head. But basically, they've only lost two games. When Durant is out in curry. And it's when Steph is out in Katie is in there like twenty and ten which is still great right there like twenty something in to when it's the other way when Steph is in and katie's out what about if it comes down to. It's humor me. Oh, you're saying like Draymond Durant. Trae mon- transcends all stay with trae dream. Of course, is there a market. What's the market for dreaming? I mean, it's not he's not a top two player on a championship team. He's good player. If you're the lake match they start shopping Draymond. And you're the Lakers, and that's your one slot. You've.

"State Warriors in action tonight against the Memphis grizzlies. Who might no longer have. A man we respect and fear Zach Randolph on the squad. So they might not be the we don't bluff Memphis grizzlies. But there's still a squad that they make it rough on you. That that that ethos that that that part of their DNA? It is still the same. Yeah. I mean, what did I see Mark assault? Mike Conley playing together. Those guys are legit. Really good players can stay healthy. Mike. Conley is he's he's like a rock in your shoe. He can he can be an irritant. But also, he's just good hard nose player. I just always respected his game. And you know, as the NBA has changed. Guys are striping it from long distance. My colleagues type duties is going to go and get your effort. Yeah. It's I think that they represent kind of what the Western Conference is is that a weight, you got the grizzlies. She got the kings. She got the sun. She got the clippers like you never have a night off. You know? That's that's the issue this year in the west is that await, you know, we're we're slipping a little bit against the sun's. Guess what demo Booker just beat you on a game winner, you know? And then you get to your Houston Rockets. Oklahoma City Denver Utah warriors Spurs Lakers. I mean, it's like, whoa. I mean that conference is going to take a pound of flesh out of people throughout the year. That's just that's the way it's going to happen. Obviously, the warriors are uniquely. Constructed and uniquely suited to handle the rigors of the Western Conference. How many wins if they ripped off in a row for seven seven in a row looking for number eight tonight that train is a rolling. But when you're getting you know, there was not a lot of conjecture and hand, but the question about the warriors a what about the bitch? Do they have a bench? What about these new guys? Everything has worked out perfectly since you know, once you got past those two games in Denver, and in Utah, the warriors brand of basketball on both ends of the floor has been outstanding. When you think a step leading the way as he has since the beginning of the season. And then the young guys coming along. You heard Steve Kerr talking about Draymond. He said he's never seen Draymond play. Better. Think about that statement for second. All right. We've seen Draymond green be at his peak. Not just in terms of what he does defensively, but the way he distributes the ball just. Off the intangibles of things you can see the things you can't see and Steve Kerr right now. And we're not even at thanksgiving seeing that Draymond green is playing the best. He's ever seen. This team is just it is it is a machine and any signs of it stopping if you can find one let me know what I think the thing, but trae Mon, and I don't know if he came to this on his own. Or just it it. It's settled that that it worked out is. He honestly right now is not caring about scoring in any way, shape or form. And so what what is doing is what if Draymond green just focused on defense, assists and rebound what he's doing minus the defense. He's doing his Magic Johnson impression. They're very nice. Here's the thing with trae mon- taken the fewest shots. He's ever taken taken the fewest threes he's ever taken and yet best assist. He's ever had and close to the best rebounding's ever had and all that energy. Defensively is incredible. The leadership the communication not just with the guys. He's huge too. But with the young guys as well taken on that leadership role. I mean, it's it's all it's all Clinton's. Yeah. And this would be if it continues second-highest field-goal percentage she's ever had because he's not throwing. Concrete the washing machine offensively a little bit. Watching him operate out of the post, and and survey what's going on and be very smart and judicious with the basketball. I mean, that's where I agree. I mean, obviously, I agree with Steve Kerr. But that's where I really agree with him in terms of playing that position because that's new in terms of Draymond get down the block and looking around. Okay. What can I do with this basketball? That's going to get us the best shot. Good shot to great shot. You say it all the time. Draymond green is the hub. He has been he has been that this year to two with no peer. So think about how smart Steve is you put dream on the block, you know, what he can't do on the block. He can't shoot three. Okay. What it is literally impossible. He's on the block then you take advantage of his phenomenal passing. And then you also tell him if they want to switch a small little guard on you get it bulldog that guy and then go to the ramp house. And so what you're doing is you're catering. Coach's job is to put players in positions to succeed. The position for him to succeed is on the block. And then also look at the rotation. He's playing dream aunts playing with that second unit a little bit and to run the offense through him. You got all kinds of offense with the starters. When you got Steph, Acadian, clay and Draymond everybody out there. But then when you sub Outremont bring him in with the second unit, and it usually the one score most times clay, but then you've got super smart players like Andrei now mckinney's planning there to Repco, you run everything I love the magic thing is that you run everything through dream on and good things happen. But you run everything to them not him being twenty four feet from the bucket where he's going to get that trigger finger and lost. That three because guess he wants them to shoot three's the opposition position. That's why they leave him there know and dream odds enough competitors. I go you gotta leave me wide open. I'm hit a couple of these. Well, yeah. But last year he only hit thirty percent. And and when you when you can engage Draymond, and I'm just talking about from a pure basketball point of view when you can engage him, and you can find something that clicks with who. He is naturally. He is a team player. Okay. Here's a guy that wants things to help the team. And so when you can put that on I'm like, hey, this is a different way for you to be the all around player because I've always gotten the sense. And he's pretty much said this too that he fancies himself as an all around player guess her better shooters on squad. They're better shooters in the lead. Yes, he is a defensive focus guy. But how many times have you seen him grab that rebound and start the break. Now, how many times have you just that that is that is all about? And so when you kidding. Engaged that part of his basketball, great brain, and you have a fully engage Draymond green. Because here's another thing. And I and I think you know, maybe this has to do. You know, maybe this has to do with time marching on. Or this new thing dream on the block, and then having him survey what's going on and engaging in a different way. Basketball wise, the wolf in at the referees. This year. I'm seeing it this year. Now, you know, why that is? Did you do something in the preseason? When I got DeMarcus cousins Tibet him and dream on who would have the fewer teeth. And DeMarcus said, oh, it'll be me, you know, and partly everybody's like, yeah. Because he's gonna play fewer games. Draymond went. Oh, really? Oh, like, okay. Let's see how this goes. So I'm just saying this is like the clay Zaza dunk best. You know, when they had the bed going on who could dunk more than they also have the Zaza got ten rebounds and a duck in a game that our strike the guy would shave his beard. I mean, these guys have to five things behalf to engage them. They have to find things to be to be entertained. So what was the bet? I don't want to say with the stakes are, but you can rest assured, not only that I tell Draymond on the market said I've been working on him with what the said to Bob FitzGerald agent provocateur. Now, it's you know, and now a DeMarcus comes in then I'm going to be like man, Draymond. But talking about you who's been, you know, so I just I pick these guys against each other rod for the betterment of everybody. However, it's happening less often at the referees. And I know it's very early in the season. Let's weapon at the referees. But I will say this having Mark assault in the building having my calmly in the building. And having a crew we have tonight. There goes the teas tonight. Do you want to do a version of blow the whistle? I actually I don't let me just say run run and hide. That's all. I'm gonna say that just tell us who the three officials are. We can't do it without the music. I mean, basically, this you could do it. This is the reason for us to.

"You got to buy a ticket Andy to watch one team just on the level of excitement. What ticket you buy, what game? There's a couple of teams. Can I split my ticket like a matinee? We're, we're gonna go steal. That way back in the day we should do the double headers. So I used to see this Mississippi State team by the way they finished the year with the pieces that they have in place. I think that they have a chance to really take a step forward as a program in your four hundred coach challen makes us see them, and I'm really excited. Perfect segue to talk to coach. We'll wait about his team. I think I'm hearing great things, man, trout waters, arguably the most exciting player returning to the league fellow, Chris Jackson in them with a real quick release. And that's what saying, like what trae mon- brought to this team. But he also seemed at some point kind of needed to reel it back because he didn't have anybody else really on that squad. He's the best guy, five, ten or under save for trae young in the country as far as making plays. So now they've surrounded him with some guys that can also go out and finish. It's gonna put him back more in a in a quarterback role, no offense to two of, but he may be the best quarterback in this league and as a sophomore, I'm anxious to see how he matures from your one to two a couple of big recruits. I think the deal with LSU is that they were looking for a little bit more exciting style of basketball, right? Like when Bruce came into Auburn, all of a sudden it seemed like there were scored ninety points now the defense need to get a little bit better, but wills brought at least that excitement out to to the p Mak in university in a basketball program that has a storied history. Well, pace of play is so important when you've got a guy Electra, Mont water very fast end to end great distributor it allows you to play at that frenetic pace while still making good decisions. Coaches can't stand turnovers, so you're going to play fast and and everybody wants to take shots, but you wanna be able to execute. You have to have a good quarterback on the floor in order to execute that trout waters gives him that advantage. You know it's different is if you would ask me, hey, we're going to do SEC media days the finebaum show twenty fifteen. I'm thinking that's that's pretty tough. This this, the whole league itself just looked a whole lot different now in two thousand eighteen. Can you argue that this conference is right there with the if not. Even maybe a step above it going into this year? Well, I I think throughout parts of the season forget about the preseason polls. I know we all have to do those things too. Hey, you're on this side of it. Over and all about two projections. But really, you're going to look into Cimber January, possibly, February, and have six or seven teams in this league ranked in the top twenty five. That's how good I think it is top to bottom. I'm anxious to see Kermit Davis at old miss. Does he had enough time to undo all the poor fundamentals from the prior coach that's going to be a huge key. So there's a lot of things that are must see TV, especially as it released, SEC bath. And again, Tom Crean Georgia's well to that team will wait his. He will join us here on this momentarily. He is Andy candidate. Never self deprecating at all. I do appreciate that Peter burns we are in the Paul finebaum show you can get a delay. Yeah, only if you've got that there is the LSU Tigers. We'll talk to those guys next listening to about Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back to as easy media days here in Birmingham, and it Kennedy coach. We'll wait and scholar maze joining us here. Coach, I just want to get into this up about Rouge native in. It was such a a heart wrenching story. When you saw the weight SIMS in his passing this all season, how has this team been able to cope with that? Well, we're, we're still in the process of moving forward. September twenty. Eighth was a rough day and every day since then, we've, we've tried to move forward and make progress and got a little bit and get a little bit better and get a little bit further away from it..

Here we go three plays into the second half. And with an extra point. This was a twenty four to sixteen game. Two teams exchanged field goals in that third. Quarter was twenty seven and nineteen Tom Brady got the ball back looking at kilson clock and extend the eight point lead. We saw a rarity on that side of the ball is Brady was being hounded with a coverage sack coming. He fumbled the football away did so inside his own thirty yard line four plays later. Patrick mahomes.

Right over the shoulder of tyreek hill and the chiefs are two points from a tie down twenty seven twenty five late in the third. Andy Reed did not go for a two point conversion in this case. He took the kick which made it a twenty seven twenty six game. That is how the third quarter ended, but what a fourth quarter this turned out to be on their ensuing drive. The patriots got it down close enough. For a Gostkowski thirty nine yard field goal that stretch the lead to four points. So it was thirty to twenty six with ten twenty two to go in Kansas City was gonna need a touchdown as it turned out. They almost got the touch the touchdown on the ensuing kickoff. Trae mon- Smith with a ninety seven yard kick return was only Devin mccourty stay with it. Then ultimately ended up running him down from behind to key. Keep it from getting into the end zone, but they weren't gonna be able to keep them out of that end zone for long because Patrick Mahomes was feeling it holds creeps up to the line drops back into the gun. Got what kids to his right three? Receivers left homes will throw on third. The one looking for Kareem hunt floats at into the end zone. It's over is headed sliding behind. Tyreek hill who makes the catch. He floated it over haunt to thought it was coming to him. And tyreek hill sliding in behind the play makes the catch the score. And the chiefs take the lead thirty.

"What do you think the game plan should be for trying to slow down durant and curry in particular okay so i think with curry i think it's gotta start not just what you do your defense against their offense but i think one advantage the rockets should have that almost nobody playing golden state has had for a while is they're gonna make him play defense a lot because the rockets have two point guards in james harden chris paul so they're gonna involve them in a lot of pick and rolls but they're gonna make him expend energy on the defensive end of the court and energy is something that is obviously a finite resource and so i think just having having him play defense because one of chris and one of james is on the court forty eight minutes i think that's going to be a big deal as far as durant i mean i think you basically have to like send waves like this is some sort of like battle or something you're going to start with a reza and you might have soccer sometimes what he's inside you might have bought mood say and you're just trying to you're just starting to get durant is sort of feel those guys a little bit because i feel like a lot of these teams they don't even have anybody who you know like you saw toronto and lebron they just didn't have anybody they can literally throw lebron whatsoever the rockets technically have a few defenders they can throw kevin durant but that that feels like that's the trump card with golden right like they a couple of years ago obviously with the team that won seventy three games with curry and thompson and trae mon but now they've got kevin durant and how the hell do you guard kevin durant general it's such a hard thing to do but i would say send those waves of of defenders and to some extent basically hope for the best might do you do you think one team has the edge over the other in terms of coaching also a good question i'm i'm not sure i know the people listening might say well hey you know steve kerr's wants who championships and dantonio obviously has i guess i'll say spotty postseason resume but i don't have.
