"Game before. So what I've seen, though, is I think in these close games, teams have to convince their players to stop like running the clock down too early in these fourth quarters. Like, you know, you get to 5 minutes and you watching the point guard, you know, playing more cautiously and they're starting their sets, trying to run an extra 8 seconds off. So they're getting into their first action at ten. Instead of early. And I just think Boston, they became very hesitant. If they get if they have the lead going into the fourth quarter, I think they have to, you know, encourage smart no. We're not trying to run clock. We're going to play, and I think smart actually has to find his way, you know, back into the post like he did at the end of game four, you know, where he can bully smaller defenders. Well, it's funny you say that because Chris Paul is like on the verge of an 8 second violation all the time. He's like a half a second away and it's amazing. It's like the 7 seconds or less franchise is now like 19 seconds or more. They barely get the ball over half court in 7 seconds anymore. And again, when you're playing against switching teams, right? It takes a little longer to exploit the switch than it does a drop, right? The drop is like, you can basically get a decent look off the first action against a drop. When you have a legit Hall of Famer, like, you know, Chris Paul or a great player like Dončić and Booker. But it's the traps. It's the, it's the switching to me that, you know, you need as much time on the clock as you can. And people talk about playing with pace. Zach and playing with pace is really good and it's necessary. But everybody equates that just to the full court to me, that goes to the half court as well. How quickly you get into what you're running. How hard and how forceful your cuts are. How well are you screening and setting up the screen? All those factors go into half court pace. And I think Phoenix because they rely on actions more than a lot of teams now, they have to pick up their pace in the half court. It's going to be a really fun game. I also, by the way, when I said me too about Boston, and I picked Boston to win this series. But by the rule of the basketball gods, I must pick Boston tonight because of the pick Boston to win the series. I have to pick Boston tonight. I hope we get a game 7. Coach Jeff van Gundy your inside is second to none. Thank you so much for your time. I will see you soon. All right, take care..

"I think Milwaukee's other hope is, you know, I'm curious to see this coach Boston has been an elite offensive team now too. For the last 45 games their defense has gotten all the attention justifiably. So they're like a top I think they're second and offense since January 1st. I think Milwaukee's hope in this series, one of their hopes is grant Williams Al Horford, Derek white, Marcus smart. We're going to dare you to shoot threes. And we don't believe you're shooting a percentages in the case of grant Williams and Horford of late are sustainable. We do believe you're shooting percentages in the case of Marcus smart and Derek white, are sustainable. So my question to you is like Boston around Tatum and Brown is just a social shooting team, but it doesn't seem like it because of how they move the ball and how those two stars are such great shot makers. Why is and grant Williams is shot 40% from three. That's real. Maybe that's a real thing and he's just a great shooter, no, I don't know. But how is Boston able to be so damn good offensively, which with what I think is just okay shooting around its stars and all we hear about is shooting, shooting, shooting. How are they able to be that good offensively? Well, I think Robert Williams, the lob threat, helps them, him being back. I think that the ability of like you mentioned Horford to spread the floor, not get small, see, I think they have very good overall size. So to be able to keep the size on the floor and still have enough shooting with grant Williams and Horford tice can make an occasional three, I think you're right, Derek white's going to have to shoot the ball better. You know what Milwaukee's going to do defensively and you know what Boston is going to do? I think it's a sign of a great team when you can you know exactly what they're going to do because they are so resolute in what they believe and how they're going to defend. So I think game one there'll be no surprises as far as schemes match up things like that. And I think it's going to really just come down to and going back to your offensive thing. I think Tatum his passing ability has always been there, but the consistency of his willingness to draw the second offender and create open shots. I mean, again, I hate comparison because it is truly the thief of joy, but he has right now some Dončić genome as far as that size to be able to see over defense. And that willingness to pick people apart. I think he's been, I think they're the best team left right now. And for many reasons, but a large part is because he's been so willing to be a defensive stalwart and offensive igniter. Well, he was the best player against Brooklyn in a series with Kevin Durant. If he's the best player in this series, Boston's gonna win if he's close if it's Yanis, but it's close, Boston is gonna win. By the way, coach, before I let you go I have to say, I thought I thought of you yesterday. There's a passage in Chris herrings book about the Knicks about you thinking so much about basketball that you drove into your garage door, I think where you were driving, right? Like the garage door was not open and you mind was on the game and you forgot to open it and just drove into it. Yeah, Grant Hill. People now hear him as a broadcaster and card owner and head of USA basketball and all that, right? And I think so many of your fans would have no realization that he was so dominant early in his career before injury. And so Gran hill when I was coaching the Knicks was as big a problem as anybody could be to you. He was a point forward and he could run pick and roll with any combination. They Doug Collins did a great job of surrounding him with shooting and they ran a lot of different wrinkles. So we had just played them and he had diced us up pretty good. And so we were playing them, you know, like one of those quirks and the NBA schedule where you get them a week later and so I was coming home from shoot around and you know I had like the driveway like in like a lot of people doing New York where you go uphill and then you turn into your garage. I did that. Unfortunately, I forgot to hit the garage door opener. And so Grant Hill caused me to make pay out a lot to the repairman to give us a new garage door and I'll forever be upset with him about how much he cost me. But the good part of that story is it wasn't in vain, at least we won that night. So yesterday afternoon I went on a grocery run and in my head, I've got all this stuff ruining. Three game 6 is tonight. How am I gonna juggle watching all three of those games? I got a podcast in the morning so I gotta watch them all tonight, start to finish, take my notes, I gotta start previewing sixers heat just in case and I got a column to write and I got NBA today and I get in the car and I back out of the garage now at least the garage door was open, but we have a very tight garage, very tight garage my Honda civic is like I've got a foot and a half on each side of the Honda civic. And I'm just spacing out and I back out not paying attention to the fact that the right side of the Honda civic is about to smash into the side of our garage door frame and I hear and I oh my God, I just pulled a Jeff van Gundy and I get out the right bumper is like hanging off the car. There's anti freeze dripping out of the front and I'm like this is so bad, man. I got a lot of problems. No, no, that's true. And I'll give you another one. I'm not a great driver. So my brain was in Houston to do a game. And so he had brought his wife, so we're going to go get something to eat. So he came to my house Uber to my house. And I'm chatting on backing out of my driveway. Forgot to open up the or forgot that the gate, it was open, then for some reason, I hit it, hit the button, and it was closing, and.

"If Booker is like 80% of Booker, I feel pretty comfortable with Phoenix in this series, and we can talk about why. And I've said before, I want no part of Luka Dončić in the 7 game series. That guy is a monster. It is ironic though coach that for the second straight year, the sun's are now facing a team who beat the jazz by going 5 out and it spots last year it was the clippers and the difference between the suns and the jazz against the clippers was as you just said, 8 and his ability to catch against switches, offensive rebound his hands. And I think that looms large here too if Dallas tries to go 5 out, it doesn't seem as if that would be quite a central and ingredient in this series, in part because of Paul and Booker exploiting switches, but also because ayton is just a much better offensive player with the ball in his hands, than Rudy Gobert. And also, you know, the level of perimeter defense that Dallas is about to face from Paul Booker bridges, Crowder, cam Johnson, maybe Tori Craig gets back in the rotation is to put it politely a little better than the level of perimeter defense. They just tore apart against the jazz. Well, it's true. And I think ayton has great feet too. So he can, you know, he can do defensively a lot of different things. He's just he's just a really good player. You know, irregardless of does he get paid, whatever he gets paid, you know, an extension talks. He's a really good player, and he's with a really good team for him. I agree, that's why Phoenix to me has been dominant. They've been great offensively and defensively. I do believe, though, Dončić is the hardest matchup in the NBA. I just. Literally, I love it. There's no good. If I had to say like one possession, like, to not just go get a shot, but just like there's no good way to play. You play drop. That's a terrible coverage. You try to switch most vibes don't have a great chance. And again, that doesn't mean I think they're aesthetically as pleasing as a lot of teams because he holds the ball and he's doing his thing. But I just think his combination of size and skill and the ability to make every pass, I just think the guy is just an absolutely brilliant brilliant, offensive talent. And because he has an advance in the playoffs yet until, you know, that somehow his brilliance on offense gets overshadowed by lack of playoff success. I just think I never understood that. I mean, not that it's been going on for a long time, but you did hear people say, well, why hasn't he advanced the first round? And you're over hard to win. It's hard to win. Because they played a team that was maybe the favorite to win the championship in both of the seasons and he averaged like a thousand points in a thousand assists, and I will tell you this. If you just say the name Luka Dončić, just say, do they even just say Lucca, Lucca, Lucca, two, any clippers, coach, they begin shuttering like they don't want and they don't want to see that dude ever again. Just ask anybody what the clippers how good that guy is. I will say Utah hunted him both in the regular season end in this series on defense as mercilessly as any team in the NBA. And I thought that's where the hamstring issues or whatever it is showed up a little bit offensively he was great. Defensively, he was a matador last night, and I think Phoenix is going to see that and triple down on that. I'm not sure they can take advantage of him in the same in the same ways. You know, it's not like they have a ton of blow by speed. I think Dončić, I actually think he's made a terrific improvement at that end. And I don't know if it's more protection last night. When he blocked Rudy Gobert or stripped him or Rudy Gobert lost a ball, whatever happened on that play, that that felt like that was the moment that was the moment that jazz ended, just like you could pinpoint the moment where Lisa Simpson broke Ralph wiggum's heart on The Simpsons. You probably don't know that reference. That was the moment I can pinpoint the end of the jazz. Yeah. I have no idea about The Simpsons, but I would say that when you're a great player, you can only be a great player. If you commit to defense because you know that is exactly what it takes coupled with your great offensive skill to move on and have success. And so I think commitment to defense has improved yearly with the Mavericks. And I think he knows sometimes they have some roster issues that are going to come up sometimes like you don't know when your best chance is. This could be their best chance. And so I think his commitment levels high, I think he's got guys playing well around him. Finney Smith Brunson has been absolutely outstanding. I think the Dinwiddie, like he's a wild card, like to me, he gives them size and ability to go off the dribble if he's playing well..

"And now, the low post. Welcome to the low post podcast on a Friday morning after what was the first mega night of the NBA playoffs with three high pressure elimination games, all of which sadly for us neutral fans or we neutral fans as my dad would correct my grammar. Ended with actual eliminations, the jazz are out facing an off season of major, major questions and change. The pelicans are out and the Philadelphia 76ers after so much drama after an epic meltdown slash press conference by Doc Rivers after threatening. Threatening big time weekend drama in Philadelphia dispatched the Toronto Raptors in an absolute blowout. So we only have one hope left for a game 7 in the first round and it is the wild and woolly, Minnesota Timberwolves and Memphis Grizzlies and happened to be calling that game tonight. Someone who's gonna help us go through all these series and preview the next round, the one and only Jeff van Gundy live from Minneapolis. How are you? Doing well. Enjoying my stay in sunny Minneapolis. So you, I think, promote the image of an old school curmudgeon. Is that fair? I try not to. Okay, maybe sometimes you come across as an old school curmudgeon. I will just editorialize, okay? So I could see you saying things like, well, two points is just two points. Doesn't matter how they come. So I will ask you this. Did you did you smile, laugh, jump out of your seat, something when John morant detonated unbelievably at the end of the third quarter in game in game 5 in Memphis. Please tell me you had some sort of human reaction to this. Yeah, I mean, it was a great play. Absolutely. You know, I was able to coach like Steve Francis. So I saw a place like that. I know no one wants you to go back and ever say another guy did something, but I saw Steve Francis do crazy stuff like athletic like morant did the other night and it was a heck of a play. But he's done a lot of those. But the best part of it was the call of the jawbreaker. That to me was I laughed out loud at, I am called because it was so appropriate. I wonder, I haven't talked to I in since that game. I wonder if that was rattling around in his brain, just in the recesses of it just in case or he improv'd it. No, he had, he had that one stored up from before the games before the series started. He was just waiting. I am sure for the right time to unleash it. I got to tell you though, it's cool. It lives forever. That call lives forever now. It's a little figure of speech, but you only get one shot at those calls and breen has talked about a couple of big ones that he regrets. I mean, he's the best to ever do it. And you now lives forever, jawbreaker. Oh, I'm so good. So good. Are you this series, this has been one of the drunkest first round series of all time. Like every game features. Forget like X's and O's and occasional mistakes and breakdowns and bad shot selection by Minnesota down the stretch of game 5. That happens. Every game features like at least one 45 second segment and probably like three where it's turnover, run out, turnover, run out, guys fall over another turnover you're like, when did the basketball game start and the Keystone cops came in and started playing, are you? Are you, I think, I think you guys would be okay to actually be drinking during the game. That's how drunk the series has been. Are you looking forward to game 6? Well, I think you make a very good point. It hasn't been really well played. It's been hard fought, but not well played. John chaney used to have a saying that I really believe in. You can't play emotionally drunk. And I think both teams at times have been emotionally drunk. And that has led to, in some cases, catastrophic mistakes. And Minnesota, we were talking before, they have led a 168 minutes of the 240 plate. And 40 of 44 of those that they didn't lead were in game two. So they have basically been ahead in the other four games. The entire game, and yet they just haven't been able to finish it off. And I think most people watching the series think this should be the elimination game for them tonight versus the other way around. And that's other than pat bev, this is a pretty young team. And you know, they've had some big defensive breakdowns and big moments. Dave, I thought their offense just ground to a halt late in game 5 and they took a lot of bad shots, but I'll tell you this coach. I wonder, did you ever have set aside Jordan who nobody wants to poke the bear with Jordan? Did you ever have a series or a player who would unleash taunts early in the game against other star players or shush the crowd too early? And you would be like, can you just leave it? Can you just leave it be? We don't want to anger this team because I love so a pat bev is gonna hit you with the too little taunt. He's gonna hit ja with the two little ton every single time. Even if he misses the shot, I feel like he's gonna hit him with the two little cat is getting a lot of stuff for hushing the crowd early in the fourth quarter after a three and of course they lose. And he looks foolish. I want Minnesota to keep leaning all the way into that. I don't care that they lost the game. I don't care that they look a little foolish. I like that this is their spirit. I don't want them to lose their spirit, but did you ever have players who were like, can you just, can you not make anyone mad until the game's.

"Yeah, I've got two guests for the second week in a row. We're very generous here at SI. First, I've got the Hall of Famer Ben Wallace, former NBA champion with the pistons, of course. Ben has launched a new cannabis venture, it's called undrafted, a nod to his own career, of course, which you can learn more about at BW as in Ben Wallace, BW undrafted dot com. We discussed that new venture, as well as a bevy of NBA topics. Of course, having to include had to include defensive player of the year because Ben Wallace won four of those tied with to kimbi matumbo for the most ever. Ben Wallace actually second, I should say, in the pod because first up, I've got Stan van Gundy of TNT and NBA TV. We had a ton to discuss, of course, at this late stage in the season, we get into the sun's title hopes why he thinks that Phoenix is absolutely the favorite. How far the grizzlies can go, what the Celtics can do now without Robert Williams, how far can the nets get after their weird jagged season? Plus, Stan gives us his picks for coach of the year and defensive player of the year and lots, lots more, never any shortage of strong opinions when you have Stan van Gundy on the pod. Before we get to all that, a reminder, please rate review and subscribe to the crossover wherever you get your podcasts. If you got feedback for me, please hit me on Twitter at Howard Beck.

"Big question number 6. The Memphis Grizzlies. Oh, what a cute upstart team. Okay, now they're not just cute. They're really good. They're tough they're ferocious. They talk trash in LeBron's face and annoy him. They're really good. Boy, they could win around in the play. Oh my God, 41 and 19. Two games behind the warriors for the number two seed with a much easier schedule for the rest of the season. They are 5th in offense. Think about that. 5th in offense, despite the fact that they don't shoot threes and they really can't shoot that well from it anywhere based on the numbers. 8th on defense, 5th in net rating with a decent chance to catch the warriors for number two as long as draymond green is out. So the simple question is this. We talk about this team cute, young, upstarts. Okay, ferocious really good. Jeff van Gundy, can the grizzlies just flat out win the championship? What was so interesting about their season is they started out so horrifically defensively. Then they lose morant. And they find their way. And they win without morant. And then when morant comes back, they continue to win at an unbelievable pace. And then I think Moran set out a game just recently, I think it was a road game in New Orleans. And they win that game. I mean, these guys are just really good and they've got great depth, but I don't even know who their second best who you call their second best play. Like, they have a bunch of guys that play well. Morant, clearly like this dominant player personality leader, and then they have a bunch of guys that just fit together very well. It's truly, to me, out of left field. Like how they could have started so bad. Defensively, and now be so good defensively. So a couple of things. They are two in one against the warriors so far. So they're going to win the tie break in the event that those teams are tied head to head because even if the warriors win the last game, the next tie break is get ready for this. Division winner, which is so anachronistic and stupid, but it's still a tie break in the grizzlies will win their division. The warriors, unless they catch the suns, will not win theirs. I think there are, again, 41 and 19. It's crazy how good they are. If you're skeptical of them in the playoffs, I think there are two reasons and I want to run both of them by number one, they're young and it's rare for a team to go from we've won one playoff game together against Utah last year in the first round. You can count those play in games if you want. Those are high stakes games at warriors to win the play and tournament was an awesome, awesome game. But one actual playoff game, it's very rare to see a team go from that to like, oh, we're suddenly in the finals or three three in the Conference Finals. Do you buy that rationale for some light Memphis skepticism? I mean, no, I don't buy young. Like when the team's good, they're good. And I'm a little bit more like if I was like, and I'm not skeptical on Memphis, but if I was, it's jaren Jackson junior is he going to like. Where is he at? Is he going to be a dominant second best player? Is he going to be inconsistent up and down in his offensive production? What a great draft choice? What a terrific player. You know, is he a guy who can, and I think he can get it done in a playoffs when teams are concentrating on him? What does he bring? The youth. Can they score well enough in morant's minutes off the floor in the playoffs? And where are they going to go? With the ball. I think you're hitting on it about can they score enough in the plan? First of all, jaren Jackson for his greatest season is he's having defensively 41% overall 32% on threes 48% on two. That's just not going to be good enough, particularly for this reason. I think if you are if you think the grizzlies are still not quite there, the reason would be that a lot of the reasons they are I'm not saying this is true, but I think this idea is worth looking at. A lot of the things that are driving their success are things that will not vanish, but will be more limited in the playoffs than they are in the regular season. So they're really dependent on forcing turnovers for their offense and they're really dependent on offensive rebounding. They're the number one offensive rebounding team in the league. And you could make the argument that, well, they're going to face better opposition. The game is going to slow down. At the very least, the opponent turnovers that are fueling all these Harlem globetrotters, fast breaks that they're getting every game. They're the greatest show John Moran is the greatest show in the NBA right now by himself. A lot of that stuff will come down. Teams will be more prepared for their offensive rebounding. Maybe they will maybe they want Steven Adams is just a monster offensive rebounder. And then their lack of outside shooting. They've made them how their 5th on offense and they're not, again, shooting well, even their floaters. They're like the floater kings of the NBA. They're like 15th and field goal percentage from floater range. That offense that's 5th, I think in the playoffs, it will be very interesting to see how it performs. That's the sort of all the stuff that they're excellent at in the regular season. If they're merely pretty good at that in the playoffs, I think they take a big hit. Well, I think that is the question. I think, you know, offensive things change in the playoffs. It's not the exact same game. But I do think offensive rebounding can hold up. Now, it's always the tradeoff between staying big and keeping, you know, more size on the floor, more rebounding than limited perimeter shooting or do you add more shooting in the playoffs and take off an offensive rebound. I think those choices are often challenging. And there's a give and take. You can't, you can't try to be everything. And so it'll be interesting what Taylor Jenkins, who, by the way, like when you.

"We saying in two weeks, I'd still be doing him if they win 6 in a row and he's playing great. I don't believe it. I think it would be fun. I think fans are passionate, particularly Philly fans, or east coast fans. But they're also highly forgiving. And so I just think nothing's beyond the realm. And I don't think he should well, I'll say this too. I think since he's the one that has to live with it, I think he has to be the one to really think through, like, what is he trying to get out of this? And let's just say he went to Sacramento. Is he sure that's a better situation for him than Philly? Like, I mean, that's a historically inept franchise ever since, you know, they let Rick Edelman go, right? So would he be better off? I would say he'd be better off biting the bullet. He's in a great basketball town. He has got a great coach. An unbelievable president and Daryl morey, who's proven that he'll do anything he can to put together the best roster to try to win. He's got Joel embiid, who, again, a little bit passive aggressive at times. With him, how about just going to each other and vowing that we will only communicate with each other? We won't communicate through coaches through other people through the media. And then let's see where it goes. So I don't believe it's it has to be burned. I mean, again, Ben Simmons is choosing right now to not play there, and I guess not get paid, but the grass is greener. When you're old like me, you understand that, you know, there are problems everywhere in every organization. I made the case three months ago that if he walked in and gave a press conference said, hey, I realized I let the team down. I've been going through a lot of mental struggles about my shooting, my free throw shooting. It's going to be a long struggle for me, but I'm going to come out of it. I'm going to try my best. I'm going to come play. The fans would forgive him. I just think so much time has passed since then. Skeptical. And by the way, I don't even know if Sacramento has the goods to get Ben Simmons. I don't know what video you know. But I'm just saying like, you pick your spot, whatever the spot is. It's not Nirvana. And again, anybody that underperforms that's highly paid. And it's his game that's always going to be scrutinized more than non scoring really good player. We're not even non scoring, but non rain shooting, right? It's going to be scrutinized. And so wherever he gets traded, there's no spot that you're not going to be scrutinized. At that salary. So I don't know. I'm hopeful still that he'll walk in. He'll say, I'm not giving my money back anymore. Like you said, give a press conference. I made this decision. I thought it was best for me over the last couple of months. I've come to the conclusion that I want to be a sixer, I'm going to work hard. Disappointed in the playoffs, yada yada, and then play hard, like Ben Simmons, plays hard. It's not like it's not like you're having to convince us to play hard. So play hard and you know I think it would be fine, but again that's been sentenced decision. I don't get the sense that the sixers love, love, love, dear and Fox, maybe we have to be a three teamer. Cleveland wage brought up Cleveland. I don't see a deal there that I love unless Phillies got a third team. So we'll take Kevin Love in like four draft picks. I don't see a Cleveland deal that I love because Sexton obviously isn't helping anybody this year. Any new year's resolutions for Jeff van Gundy, do you make new year's resolutions? Only in my mind, I think you're supposed to write them down if you want them to really come true, but mine is to not eat M and ms on the treadmill. I'm sorry. You eat M and M's while doing the treadmill? Yeah. That's problematic. Do you have a do you have a bag? Do you put them in a cup and put the cup in the cup holder? What are the mechanics of this? No, it's the bag. And you know, you think like, I always come out of working out, unfortunately, having eaten more calories than I burned. That's problem. So that's my new year's resolution. I'm really glad I asked because every time I have you on, I learned something interesting about it.

"van gundy" Discussed on The Lowe Post

"At home or on the road with Kyrie? Honestly, honestly, I felt I felt I felt my breakfast coming up my esophagus as you asked this question because I can't entertain it. It's so ridiculous that we're having this. Are we going to throw the last 5 games of the season to get the second seed? Or I can't. And you know what? It's real, I know, it's real. No, but still like mind boggling to me is. As much as I believe in the vaccinations and all this, that home players can't play in New York, but unvaccinated road players can't. Like, what? That makes no sense to me. This also really makes no sense to me. Makes no sense. This reminds me of we were talking off air before this. I've been talking to the coaches association for the last couple of weeks because I was discussing two weeks ago with the lead office saying I feel for all these coaches and I understand why they don't want to wear masks. You see Alvin gentry now wearing a mask during games. It's hard to coach in a match, they've been told they don't have to wear a mask. Every fan sitting courtside, not every fan. Most fans sit in court side are not wearing masks. You have to sit within it when you broadcast from courtside. And I was telling these people in the league, I was like, I'm worried these coaches are gonna get sick and now a lot of the coaches are getting sick and thank God, no one appears to have gotten really sick, but speaking of things that make no sense, we take all these precautions rightfully so. And then it's like, let's walk into an arena with X thousand of fans X percentage of which are not wearing masks. Well, being there, like, again, we know the reason why fans are there. It's business it's money, right? But help health wise, it makes no sense, right? I mean, for them or for the people that they surround, but money trumps as it always does. The best basketball fit for Ben Simmons is Philadelphia. I love that's not even on my chart coach. Make the case for me. I love it. Well, there's no guesswork. It works. It's worked before. It can work again. I don't know what's going on. I don't know what tampering or what's preventing simmonds from wanting to play there. If there's other things that we don't know about, but I think it's like a no brainer. You need a 5 who can who can shoot so that he can be this push it point guard, be like down in the dunker, pick and roll player. You don't find guys like embiid around. The other one to me would be Denver because of jokic's great ability, right? It would give them a push in transition. So but I say it's Philly. And again, I don't know what goes on behind the scenes or what, I don't even know if Simmons is getting paid now or if he's just punting right now, his money, but I hope it's hard when you give up a full year of your prime. And I just hope that they can come to a resolution. So he can start that he'll play again. You know, an under discussed thing that very few people are talking about that's a trickle down effect of Simmons, not being there is the sixers have been one of the 5 to 8 best rebounding teams for the last four or 5 seasons. There are 30th in offensive rebounding and 26th in defensive rebounding. And a lot of that is Simmons because embiid and Drummond are rebounding at the same numbers as embiid and Howard did last year. They've just given Simmons is a good rebounder for his really good rebounder on both ends. You mentioned the dunker spot. You luck into two offensive rebounds a game sitting down there. All his shot attempts come at the rim, which are the most frequently rebounded by the offense types of shots. And other than that, they've given all his minutes to guys who can't rebound. And they're now maybe them in Charlotte are the two worst rebounding events having Joel embiid and being the worst rebounding team in the NBA. That's what's going on. They're tiny. I mean, they're tiny, like there are guards or small. I mean, they're a tiny group. I've been Simmons also like he just defensively he's so good, the push of the ball, diversifies your offense. You know, it's just, it's just really unfortunate. Like I think Phillies the best fit, I like Denver for him. And I think what would Denver be willing to do if anything. Maybe they don't believe in him. I don't know, but.

"What do you think very quickly of these LeBron at center lineups that Vogel and now fizdale with coach logo, hopefully we're covering well in health and safety protocols have turned to in the absence of Anthony Davis. Obviously when AD's back, these are going to be a limited part of the rotation, but probably part of it considering Dwight and DJ have done next to nothing this year. Are they viable to you? If they get enough of the supporting guys back, they're fine. I mean, they're fine. I mean, they used it against Houston. I mean, Houston's awful. They'd be Houston by a couple down the stretch. Thank you for saying that because the coverage of that game, we were guilty of it too, was like, stroke of genius, fizdale and et cetera. I'm like, how about the headlines should be barely beat a team that stinks? Didn't they have four guys score 20 or more? I don't know. Yeah. So it's not like I didn't understand what everybody was raving about. They beat Houston on the road. Hey, listen, when you've lost 5 in a row, any wins a good one. I'm not knocking down. I'm not even the move is fine. But the idea that they unlocked something, I didn't understand because they had played with Carmelo Anthony and James before. Like, this isn't like exactly revolutionary. Like, they're trying to get a win, you know, coaching is nothing more than trying to give yourself your best chance to win. And against some lineups or in some teams, it makes sense, but it still comes back to who are the other four guys around James. I can put James anywhere. James, is the type of guy he can everybody knows us. He can play anywhere. So it's who do I surround him with? Do I have enough? Because he'll bring out the best and most guys, you know? And I think what's scary to me is, is this the best of 8 that he can bring out of them? Like, it's just their best and it just keeps coming back to me to Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis is their chance. Like he comes back off of this injury and they're in whatever place they're in. And he's able to have recharged refocused reenergized and plays at a top ten level in the NBA. If he can do that, then they're really dangerous. LeBron had center, they are plus three in a 116 minutes. And you saw last night to your point, those lineups are either so bad on defense that they just have no hope. Like if Carmelo Anthony and Malik monk and Russell Westbrook are out there, you're just, you're just praying. That's all you're doing. That's just prayer, that's basketball prayer. I pray we hit enough threes and they miss enough dunks and threes because they're gonna hunt mellow every single possession. It was interesting to see morant hunt Russ late in the game last night. And then they went defense and they were to have Stanley Johnson and THT out their Stanley Johnson just already like top 5 most essential Laker all of a sudden. And the grizzlies said, okay, well, those guys can't shoot. We're gonna play our big guys just like normal and we're gonna bet that our size is you don't have the speed and shooting to punish us for playing big versus small and they generally won that bet. The I guess the non big lineups, no AD no center without LeBron. So I guess melos at center Russ is the key to those, are -27 and 44 minutes. You can throw those ones in the trash as soon as AD comes back. And just to finish your point on Lakers coverage, I really enjoyed how the headline after Christmas was LeBron overtakes Kobe as all time leading scorer on Christmas as if anyone cares who the all time leading score on Christmas is. And they lost the game. How about you lost at home to the nets? Then that's had one of their three guys and you still lost but LeBron passed Kobe as the all time leading score on Christmas. So all was well. Are you ready for question number two? Yep. Is it time for the Boston Celtics at 16 to 19, tenth in the west coming off a game without Jayson Tatum and some other others in health and safety protocols in which they lost at home to the clippers who are missing lots and lots of people arguably there are three best players and four of their top 5 and shot four of 42 from three four of 42. One of the three was made by Sam Hauser who, or Hauser, I'm sorry, who would not be playing normally. Is it time for the Celtics to explore breaking up jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum? Well, all those possible trade ideas or thoughts. It's all dependent on who you can get. So it's not about, should we break them up? It's about, can we have can we construct a better team through a possible trade, right? And I don't think anybody in this league minus maybe jokic and Giannis, who else, curry, Durant, Durant is untreatable, right? So the idea that Tatum or Brown would get traded, that doesn't, that might happen. But it's funny, it's funny you bring up jokic and I apologize for updating it because this is what this is like how screwed up my brain is. Last night, as I couldn't fall asleep, my brain went to this place..

"Careful of, right? Yeah. But also you didn't get three or four pieces of candy back then. There were no big chocolate bars. It was like, you got whatever was left over from the last Halloween. And it was always small. And yeah, I mean, that's just how it was just different. But thank goodness. There was never a Jeff and Stan, you know, cowboy and Robert type of coordinator. I'm thinking like I'm thinking like red holds men and you know, Bill Bradley or something like that. You know what's crazy? We grew up on the West Coast, right? Right outside of Oakland. And Martinez, California. So we were big, you know, warrior fans a's fans. Back in the heyday. But here's it's just so different now because everything's a picture now, right? It is. And I love watching. I'm like, you know, I'll see pictures of like, but there were no pictures back then. So you were dressing up just for not even because you enjoyed it. You just knew you had to have it to go out and people giving you candy. It was a straight, you know, I want candy. I have to dress up here. Let's do it. Quid pro quo. We all understand what's going on. Last thing, and you can take it if you want. Otherwise, I'll let you go. I'm not a big baseball fan anymore, but I've been having the World Series on in the background when I don't feel like watching NBA games. I will give it to you. Convinced me neutral ish baseball fan. Who hasn't really paid attention and only knows like the very broadest strokes of whatever is going on. Why I should not be cheering against the Astros as garbage can slamming cheaters. Jeff van Gundy defend your team. Well, first of all, I can't defend what they did. Like, I don't even want to. It was disgraceful. And unnecessary because they were great before they did it and they've been great after they've done it. They didn't need it. So that was a terrible lapse in judgment. But that being said, I am still wearing my great T-shirt that says y'all still mad. Like for those whiny Dodger fans complaining about the the championship with that was stolen from him. No it wasn't. We beat your ass, okay? That's that. Okay. Now, can they beat Atlanta? I don't know. Down three two, you know, Verlander out the whole year. You know, mccullers out now. We don't have our top two starters. But I'll say this. Regardless of who wins, we either have a 72 year old manager who I love and dusty baker, getting his first World Series win or a man who manages the braves with who's been in that same organization for 45 years. Now, we may be cheaters, but I got to say this. Until I hear somebody come out and say that that stupid job that they do in a position of power needs to be eliminated as fast as the take vow that we were talking about, then I say the Astros have the advantage and they're going to figure out a way to win it. Dusty baker and the guys, man, it's going to be fun to watch game 6. Jeff van Gundy, nobody does it better than you. Thanks for.

"Take place in the first four or 5 seconds too. It's a byproduct. It's another reason to institute. So the thing I don't like that any time I talk to somebody in the league, well, we got to study it more. Actually no you don't. You need to act. And then tinker with it. It's not going to be perfect, but it doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be stuff in the right direction. This isn't like viral research in a chemistry lab where we're doing trial and error studies on this. Just make just I'm done. Just change the rule. Let's conclude. I'm so disappointed. Are you telling me going back to the beginning, there was never a coordinated Jeff and Stan van Gundy Halloween costume when you were kids? There was never like he was whoever and you were whoever never not once. I hate to think there was, I would call that I'd be very disappointed in my parents if there were. But remember back then, though, that's in the 60s. Not everything had to be. It wasn't had to be take a picture so you could show your Friends that you parent better than they do, right? So it's just, you know, first of all, your parents didn't even go out with your trick or treating. When you were 5, they sent you out. That's it. 5 years old, you're on your own. Come back when you're done. Yeah, come back. And that's when the only thing that my mom checked for was razor blades in the apples. Like if you remember, like, I don't know if that was like I was a kid. That was like an urban legend. That's a thing that happened. Now I need to go research like the origin of who would do such a thing. Why was it, why was it a problem? Oh my God. Society. Brian windhorst types back in the 60s who hated Halloween so much. Would do that. Those are the people you had to.

"It plays to their strength like how strong they are. Like, a little bit more is let go. Like, you can't like, you know, I think with Lowry butler, PJ Tucker, and out of bio, I think it's been I think everything has fallen into line. And again, can they sustain? Can they stay healthy? But you're right. If you're a listen, if your top ten in offense with what they should be defensively, they got a heck of a chance. To play from a high seed this year. I will see the floor to you now. You brought up officiating, you and I have been. You're the driver of the eliminate the take foul the Euro fell, whatever garbage you want to call that fell. The clothesline bear hug in transition. You've been driving the bandwagon. I've been riding shotgun with you for 5 to ten years now to the point that I'm tired of talking about it. It's just unfathomable to me that the league even having created a rule in the G league, like the NBA owns the G league and they made a rule to try and stop this that they have not tried harder to stop it in the NBA. It drives me a bananas. I feel like it's just falling on deaf ears. They clearly don't care enough to do anything about it. You now, you've complained about it a lot, you're absolutely right, the world agrees with you. Basketball is good, bear hugs are bad. But now you have a specific proposal that you want to put forth to the world. Please Jeff van Gundy speak on it. So what I hate is that it's called the eurofoil because it's not, because they've eliminated in Europe. Fema basketball, it's two in the ball, right? So I watched John Moran against Golden State the other night. And draymond green basically tackled it at half court. And everybody wants more action. And there's never more action in an NBA game than in transition. So we should all be putting our heads together to try to give our players the best chance to create action. Like I said, the NBA, the way they've like, they've eliminated all the BS foul calls. I couldn't be happier. I think it's a better game. It's a better product to watch. But they can't stop now. They have to address this. I watched at Boston. I think it was Boston Charlotte game. And there were 6 called in a relatively take vowels in a relatively short period of time. Sometimes teams will even take them in the penalty. Like they'll just because players instinctively just do it. So my rule is you have a separate penalty situation. But it could be, you can set the number. It could be the first time you do it. The second time, the third time, whatever you decide, number wise, it's fair. But if a foul occurs with 20 or more on the shot clock, that leads to two in the ball eventually. Whatever you set the number. After the second time you do it or the third time. Or the first time I don't care, you could do it all the time. But obviously you don't want that in the last two minutes of the game because when you're coming back on a rebound, you know, you're going to foul right away to save time. So in the first 46 minutes, you have that. I think it's imperative. You do it not by if you're in transition or not. You do it because fouling should be punished. Fouling is not something that should be applauded. How about this? Run back and stop him in transition. You watch these fouls. It used to be a minor problem that used to just drive me crazy. Now it's taking away action from our fans. And as much credit as the NBA deserves right now for the new filing interpretations that they've put in that are being universally praised except if you're one of those guys who used to make a mockery of the game, they need to be held to account. I don't know what the rule is in the G league, but just make a first step. It doesn't have to be perfect. All we have to do is everybody acknowledge we are going to eliminate. I have no problem too with leaving it up to the referee's discretion. If you don't like mine, that's their job. That's what they should have discretion. They'll say that we want to take decision making out of the referee's hands. And that to me is ludicrous because that's like saying, I want to take decision making out of a point guard's hand. These guys are paid a lot of money. You know when a foul is a take Val, even if it's disguised, like it's got to be punished and punished harshly. And I think the radical step of doing it immediately. The competition committee should meet tonight. Institute it put it in tomorrow. Will there be growing pains? Yes. Who cares? Do it now. Don't wait. You don't have to study it anymore. It's an absolute like, I don't know what the right word is, but it's a such a negative mockery, a sham mockery. You have to combine two words. It's that good. I'm going with that dead. I just think and also the secondary thing which you don't see as much anymore, but the hacker whoever foul, if you institute something like that, because those always.

"Phoenix is two and three. You know, I watched, I've watched both of their last two games. I just, are you worried about is too early, right? Given what happened to Booker playing in the Olympics, you saw it up close, then he was out with health and safety protocols, Chris Paul's aging, they had a long run. Phoenix to me, they're just so rock solid that I think they'll be fine. They don't look particularly sprightly right now and spirited and spunky and zipping around, but I have faith in the suns. They've earned enough credibility with me. Yeah, and I think again, every year is different. You know, like, people age, people have different mentality. You have the Deandre ayton situation, contractually. And I remember back in when we went to the finals with the Knicks in 94, the next year, same team great team great health, we were 12 and 12. I believe on Christmas. And it wasn't like there was not one thing you could point to as the issue, but it was an overall malaise a little bit. It wasn't even like we weren't trying hard, but like you were mentioning, it wasn't the same feeling, like, you know, getting over losing in the finals is not easy, it's not easy at all. And I think. They have a lot they had a lot go on in the off season. And I just think it's much harder. Everybody just says to bounce back, but when you lose an opportunity where you felt like you could have won it, and maybe you should have won it in your mind. It's not as easy, just to snap your fingers and find that level of enthusiasm or energy or all in to the cause again. It may take them a little while and that's again, why you let things play out over time. And like in 15 or 20 games, everybody will have a better idea in every coach could then evaluate his team. Properly and say, you know, this is what needs to be corrected. Yeah, Phoenix and Chris Paul has a made shots for most games this season. Jay Crowder was ice cold from three until the other night. Dave mis campaigned a couple games. And he kind of jolts their team. I mean, particularly when you're giving his mid stell for Payton, he's a jolt that they really miss. The Tory Craig piece was an interesting mini loss for them. I actually feel that void when I watch them play like that void of just another wing to come in and create havoc on the offensive lines of great offensive rebounder, defend. Well, I think they'll be fine. You open the door for me, coach are you ready? You mentioned you brought up the mid 90s next. You open the door. For me, I'm gonna tease Chris herring's book, blood in the garden about the 1990s Knicks, and there was one when I was gonna have you on in February or something to talk about everything in this book. There was one anecdote in the book that involves you, you're a central character in the book that I literally read and laughed in my house by myself. I tackled out loud like an idiot and was like, I have to ask Jeff van Gundy about this anecdote when I get him on the podcast. So are you ready? Yeah? The year is 2000. The year 2000 I feel like I'm Conan O'Brien. In the year 2000, you have an assistant trainer on your team. His first name is not on this page. I don't know what his first name is last name is hamdan. Do you remember her ham? Yeah, sight. Yeah. Okay, so here's the story he tells about you. And as a lifelong mets fan, die hard mets fan, not anymore on laps. This story both made me laugh really hard and hit me like a little bit of a knife to the gut. The story, the background of the story is how much you care about winning and losing and how you want others around you to feel it in the wake of a loss as deeply as you feel it, okay? So you are the story. I'll just read you the quote. This is Saeed ham done talking. We were on a flight coming back from a preseason win and I got in trouble for yelling, yes, let's go mets after they clinched a spot in the World Series in 2000. The next day, Jeff calls me into his office and says, I need to have more respect for the sanctity of winning and losing. And I told him Jeff, the sanctity of winning and losing his wife. Yelled, let's go mets. They just made the World Series. And he just looks at me and says, get the out of my office. True or false. I have known knowledge or memory of that at that actually. He clearly he clearly does. Yeah, or he made it up. Because here's the thing, I really, like, I could see that in a playoff game. I'm not so sure I could see that in a preseason it says. In a preseason game and what makes me question that story even more is I was a mets fan. So I would have probably been all in on the mets at that time anyway. I love Bobby Valentine. I love the mets. Currently running for mayor of Stanford, Connecticut, by the way, Bobby bell. Yeah. I know, you know what, I just saw him at an event a 9 11 event. I was in the city for. We were on the same panel.

"Willing to do to make it work and the level of sacrifice that they're willing to give so that there is successful they would wanna be. If the level of sacrifices high. The results will be good. It may not always look good. There will be some struggles. I'm sure on nights just like goes talking about with the olympic team where they're used to have the ball in their hands morin. It feels funny. Maybe frank asks westbrook to play in different spots on the floor then. He's accustomed to but anthony. Davis to me has always been a sacrificer. Like you know he. He went to l. a. Knowing he was going to take a back seat but still playing this huge role James is a natural giver. Westbrook is you know a one man fast-break which may give them you know some opportunities that maybe they didn't have so maybe they can all carve out their own niche. I think defensively it's gonna be the thing for westbrook and also in the half court. How do they space and give their best players enough room to work with but again if they start from a place that they wanna make it work and they're not resentful of having to sacrifice then they'll figure it out that doesn't mean they're gonna win championship but that means that they're going to be able to play well have enough harmony and chemistry to give themselves a chance to win it. And i think frank vogel is the perfect coach to make it all work. He's as eagles of coach as you would find He is terrific a getting guys to do things that they may not necessarily want to do but must do for the team to win a while taking no credit for so i think you know if their level of sacrifices i they'll be very successful coach. Jeff van gundy congratulations on the olympics in a long run with team usa. I hope you get some sleep. Get reacclimated get some time off before we started doing this again.

And only the greatest showman in show business and tv for espn stephen smith. Our you sub man. How you doing man glad to finally be here. I'm thrilled to make it happen. You are out in la. So let's start there you talked. I was listening to you on. I take a few days ago. Talking about russell. Westbrook in the amount of pressure that's on russell westbrook. But tell me about you know how. How do you think he fits. Lebron how what are you looking for him. How does he have to changes game or does he have to change his game. Well listen. I think i think both have to modify to some degree. Lebron can't be as ball dominant as as he has been off making all the decisions. Because that's one of the reasons rusting wanna be in houston anymore as you. Well know Because he didn't want to be you know sitting on the sidelines. Playing the role of spectator being on the plane and roller spectator watching james audit. Well that's not gonna change lebron james. He's happy to be back home. He's happy to be la. He's happy to be on a title contender which he is on. We get all of that But in the end he still russell westbrook in you know credit to him. You know like. I told you we've had to be. We've all had to be critical of him at times. What we know that. He's an electrifying talent. The most athletic point guard we've ever seen in nba history. We know he's a walk in triple double and we also know. He never cheat to game with his effort when he's out on a court it's always one hundred percent and so when you look at the slow. Almost snail like pace that the lakers could could. Could you know what wouldn't prone to plan towards playing at at tom's in the past and now you've got somebody like russell westbrook all of a sudden and lebron having a night off. Ad having a night off isn't as daunting as it was the previous two years. I think that helps them during the regular season. And then i think once the postseason comes whatever it takes to win is what i think the character in russell westbrook and lebron james will do.

Your most recent job people tried to make it about zion and his family and you've said maybe not not based on any interactions. You had though right like you. It didn't feel like it was about zion but again that's the one that gets the headline right. Yeah and and listen first of all in no cases. Were you know the players responsible for for getting me fired first of all. I've said this to sarah. This idea that players get coaches fired. The decisions are made by owners in front offices. Except for lebron offices end the owners have to make the decision and it sorta taken them off the hook by blaming it on a player certainly player in the nba players are the most important part of our league and certainly the really good players have every right to voice their opinion to management and say. I really don't like land this guy. Whatever but the management makes their makes their decision. I know for a fact that shock had nothing to do with getting me fired in In miami in orlando white. And i had a head a dust up..

"van gundy" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain

"I think in large part because i fit very well into their salary structure since i was still getting paid by wisconsin. They really didn't have to pay me much at all. Just enough to get into the pension plan and healthcare plan and so i got an opportunity and head. My brother not been as good as he was as an assistant to pat. There's no way. I land that but i think patch said well. Jeff was great. Stan must be at least decent. Yeah go wow. Nepotism has been has been the key to success for so many but you had to keep the gig and you had to prove yourself what you did for a long time. 'cause a dozen years with that team to take me to the moment and now you've talked about this for a long time in many years since but the idea of okay. The team's not that great. Let's give the job over to van gundy to be the head coach and riley will be the president but not have to work on an everyday basis with the team. Then you start. Coaching really well. The team gets really good at all of a sudden like. I think i'd like to be the coach again. Take advantage just some of the success. How did that feel and and did it feel like what now history remembers it as which is him. Just run you out to take that job back now. That's not what happened all and listen. That's probably one of the most disciplining things in my career to be honest because i have a really strive to to be honest in general but especially with the media. I've tried to be honest in forthcoming and now this is my first. Nba head coaching job. And i think the media there would would have said at that point. You know for over two years. I had been both honest and forthcoming and then when i said that it was my decision to step down nobody believed me name and so it really upset me because i you.

"To that's what she says. Was sarah spain a podcast about well. Whatever the hell i want. Actors musicians athletes comedians. Neuroscientist wine experts. If i find somebody interesting. I'm bringing them to you. We'll talk about how they became who they are how they found success battle failures and how they ended up here talking to me. Hello my name. Is stan van. Gundy and my dilemma is. What snacks do i serve. When i drink people out on the pontoon boat. Because i do have people even in my family who like flavored chips on morally opposed to that sarah. I believe chip should be plain. The dip provides the flavor and so it is a moral dilemma for me. See now this is why i love you stand because i'm totally agreed. Morally opposed to the creation of weird flavors using odd chemical combinations created in a lab. Maybe you could slip into barbecue chap every once in a while. Maybe but keep those cool ranch in french. Onion and nacho blast or whatever chips away from me okay fla gimme a plane chip preferably tortilla with a delicious fresh guac or assault artichoke. Dip a green goddess a hamas. There are so many ways to dip into some natural flavors made an actual food instead a b thirty four and e seventy eight. I remember. I saw this junk food. Scientists this guy who used to work for one of the big junk food companies on the daily show talk about creating the exact right mix of emami salt sugar to get people eating more and more and more of their chips and never filling up and i really. I felt like i'd been duped. I did not like the idea of some weird combination of chemicals being designed exactly to keep me eating and eating and never being fully so now. I just as much as i can. I try to stay away from too much process stuff. I like actual ingredients that. I can identify that. Make up what. I'm eating and so chips with a delicious fresh dip so much better than the flavored kind now that being said dips are trickier on a boat. So you've got to serve them once you're sort of floating or cruising slowly. Psa avoid the waves when you're dipping. That's what she said. Today's guest is nba coach. Stan van gundy. Who went from the college ranks to head coach of the miami heat orlando magic. Who took to the o-9 nba finals Head coach and president of baseball ops for the pistons and then most recently was the head coach for the new orleans. Pelicans for one season is also worked as an analyst for tnt a professor at stetson you currently fun employed after parting ways. With the pelicans after that one season.

How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?

How Will Stan Van Gundy Fit With the Pelicans?

"Was a few weeks ago in the ringer NBA show that at the very tail end of the show I recall you saying. Keep an eye out for Stan van Gundy and New Orleans and since we last spoke That came to fruition Stan Van Gundy was hired by David Griffin and the New Orleans Pelicans I think when this all started with the pelicans ouster of Alvin gentry. Through the. Face Tyler had a former relationship with David. Griffin, we talk about my Tony possibly because he had a former relationship via the Phoenix Suns with David Griffin but they do land on Stan van, Gundy as their next head coach when you saw that news come across the wire, would you think great I'm happy I think he could bring some accountability to the team in terms of how much they need it on the defensive end of the floor they were horrific. On defense this season in San Andy. Of course, infamously famously I'm not sure once said build an effing wall and that the Pelicans need to do and I look forward to see what he can do now that he's back in the NBA but by the way like he failed in Detroit because he was coach. Angie 'em now he's just a coach right and he was always a good coach. He was good basketball coach and it was one of those cautionary tales of. It is two different skill sets number one it also in many cases can be two different motivations right if I am if I am the general manager and the coach now let's say I make a poor signing or a poor usage of money will sometimes I may want to use that guy to prove that I was right about this guy right and I know that you Still get into that with with a front offices and coaches anyway, right in in everybody wants to be responsible everybody wants to be right about the move they made. But when you then you're not doing the scouting of every other team on a regular basis, I know you have scouts you're certainly not doing that with college, but it's just a very hard job to do twofold and. Another cautionary tale of taking that over I mean everybody wants that power but I think we've seen two of these guys. Now fact three of these guys. Now, all of which I think you would say were subpar to very below average in that role but. We respect them as guys that are on the sidelines as basketball coaches. That is their expertise in that is doc rivers who took on that role Tom Thibodeau who took on that role and Stan Van Gundy who took on that role and yet got hired as coaches though it didn't go well at their last stops. I mean doc better than the other two but we thought. Hires because these guys are good basketball coaches who were miscast trying to run everything for sure absolutely and ultimately it's another good opportunity for him when New Orleans area there even though they have Zion, they have ingram granted these a restricted free agent. He'll likely back matched any offer sheet or whatever This is still sort of A. Team right now that can go in many different directions depending on how David Griffin wants to build it out and I look forward to seeing the ways in which Van Gundy, Utilize Zion and the ways in which he tries to get him going off because remember you know before all the three point shooting, we've seen the last ten years or so that has. Exploded with the warriors and the rockets and all these teams shooting lot of threes, the magic, Dwight Howard at center and four shooters around him in the late two thousands with anti head coach and they went to a finals. We're going to be lost to Kobe and the Lakers The had some good run they some really strong teams and in with Williamson. With the New Orleans Pelicans, I know they want to add another they don't want to go like all small Wall. With Zion at the five all the time it's it's just went to work but I, think van Gundy's pasts and what he could do now with this roster, it's kind of exciting to think about the possibilities with the different ways in which they can use ion but most importantly though and again, this is like with all the coaching hires we talk about I am more interested in the personnel changes who they draft, who do they try to trade for? Who Do they try to sign I am WHO's coaching the team, but you know I'm excited to see if they're able to get. Zion, going and creative ways that they weren't able to do as much during the season despite his success he posted up a lot man I. WanNa see some more pick and roll with Zion I wanNA see some more creativity with him, handling the ball and running pick and roll, and that will largely come from other personnel changes that come to the roster that allow that to happen. But Hey, man SVG had success with some different types of teams in the past and I look forward to seeing what he can do here with him, and that team has a good roster they under performed badly. Made sometimes teams underperformed because you look at their roster and you go man aol have the goods like that team underperformed I. Think so too. I think of course it I mean look I mean Lonzo I think Lonzo hit one shot in the bubble well, even though they're young that defense was bad even though they had good individual defenders, they've jrue holiday one of the best perimeter guard defenders, Ingraham and Lonzo. They were good defenders of the Lakers. They were the last two years. They were good. They were not good defenders last season with New Orleans. And Zion I, mean he was horrific. He was so bad on defense. It was it was really sad to watch. This is the guy who is blocking three point shots closing out from the opposite side of the paint at Duke just a year prior, which is why people wonder how much of it was fatigue coming back but season how much of it was the injury limiting him how much of it was effort I? Don't know I don't know what it was but regardless. He stunk on defense, and all of this needs to change next season for this team to be anything that have any chance of actually getting into the playoffs it can't be all

Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach

Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach

"Joe. Lake. Up after mark was let go had a bunch of quotes This was one of them that I found co part of it was that he couldn't get along with anybody else in the organization and look you did a great job. I'll always compliment him mini respects but you. Can't have two hundred people in the organization, not like you. Okay. and he said when I say the organizations whole I don't just mean the team just fifteen players that are involved in the coaching staff I mean everybody there's two hundred employees here. So we look at the organization going forward and the kind of coach we want and not just the performance everything else all these factors matter. We took all of that into account. So we have the player part of it. We have the owner part of it. We knew the front office didn't like him when one of the assistance. was busted for recording Jackson in meetings to play for the front office, which again that actually becomes a pro mark Jackson part of it. The Mark Jackson staff was not good enough the ownership in front office told him repeatedly, the staff is good. Enough Mark said we have the best staff going he and scalping apparently got into it and scalloping he was reassigned the front office didn't like that part of it. So we have the players have the staff we have the ownership we have the front office. Let's also talk about some of the other stuff that's just let's face it. Weird Jackson's Amana Faith I. Don't question anyone's faith. I just say to you leave me alone and I'll do my thing That's the way I've always operated and that rubs people wrong way when he was a head coach but also would find time to get to La whenever he had a convenient off day to go and do that. It's tough to tell a man of faith. Hey, you know what don't be that interested in God? That's that's an almost impossible conversation but if I was at ESPN or anywhere and said, Hey, you know what? I can't watch football this weekend. Because I have this higher calling eventually it worked they'd be like, Hey, you know what? Man Like this is all part of the job being availalbe around is very difficult in tough thing to navigate as I'm not even hundred percent comfortable doing it but I'd have to say employer at the time being frustrated by it actually makes a little bit of sense and I think there's other things that just bumped people out when curry had his ankle issues he was brought up in it was kind of a playful thing curry's brought up they put the holy oil on his ankle and. Jackson's wife at the time and Pete Jackson was like look like he had chronic ankle problems and now he doesn't. So you figure it out. That's one of those things where people like wait what Jackson also had some issues off the core where he was caught up extortion deal and I'm not even really getting on his case for that because I think a lot of things happen to people that are public figures that goes on normal people's lives. But the public figure becomes the of jokes on and on and on. He also said when asked about Jason Collins availability years ago. He said not in my locker room. So it came off as if he was a homophobe because there's evidence that he is, and then when he was asked to clear that up, he said look I know Jas I know his family and I'm praying for them right now. Hey, man you save your fucking prayers. Okay. That's the kind of stuff that just doesn't play no matter who you are and I think the. Most important part of all of this because I guess I'm still maybe a little surprised that he doesn't have a job because other people have been on TV and not been great on. TV. I've looked at other coaches that haven't had great runs and there's been plenty of people that have gotten second chances by the way both black and white. So when I see people out raged that he's been blackballed or as. Shannon Sharpe said White Bald or Kendrick Perkins recently, just saying like all of these things that I just going off on the idea that Mark Jackson doesn't have job it really feels like, okay. Are you informed and but yet you've made up your mind decided not to change your mind or are you uninformed and I think so many people screaming about this or like Oh wait that's right. You know maybe either moments you had just now listening to this like Oh, that's right. I've nothing personal against Mark Jackson. He's one of my favorite college basketball players of all time all-time. You guys know how huge of a Saint John's Fan I am and I actually was you know as a little kid be like dude I can't believe he's going this late in the draft is GonNa be awesome and he was awesome in the knicks I felt so vindicated I was. Like and I could refer team right one day I love Mark Jackson and I was right. But when I listened to him on the broadcast Van Gundy I, think him being on the broadcast Van Gundy chances of getting a job because if I was worth a half a billion dollars or more and had the opportunity to own a team or owned a team right now and I'd go. Van Gundy's on all of these little things like, Hey, look at how they blind me Anthony Davis on free throws already have them on the other side of the court. So he can seal for Deepak smaller offender will there be an adjustment. Hey, what's going on with the substitution? Hey, this rule's actually wrong. Why are they doing it? This Way Jeff Van Gundy will say, here's Hey Jason tatum something's wrong with him. He's the first pointed out it happens multiple times every single broadcast Jeff Van Gundy is easily the best NBA analyst in the game right now. Mark doesn't do any of those things and I. Don't know if that's just him not being comfortable in that role but he's a coach. He's a former player and he doesn't do any of those things. He'll say, Hey, this guy's not just a great score. He's a great individual. He's a human being. Okay. So and so doesn't get enough credit for shooting. Okay. In everything is results based. If the shot goes in, it was a great shot at the shot doesn't go in Hey, that's the guy that shouldn't be taking the shot. It's very. It's very minimal depth and when. You have people that make these decisions. You're almost instead of looking at the resume in Golden State which is on its surface again resume. You'd say Yeah. What like six years? Nicholas gives Scott his shot young team garnered play defense that's hard to do. But I think being next to Jeff. When Jeff runs circles around him on the broadcast. It it might remind go wait why why is this one guy way better talking about the game than the other guy so I think the best thing market do would not be on the broadcast with Jeff and who knows what might happen. So I just think the more we look at it and hey man trust me this is not white guy decide to push back on racism segment because I've. Probably done with those the rest of my life. I'm seeing specific to this one because the NCAA numbers are atrocious. The ABC's the head coaching. Diversity that we have in the pro sports leagues still is not what it needs to be I'm not pushing back on any of those things. But when it comes specific to mark Jackson, there are the informed in the uninformed, and hopefully if you've resisted this, you're more informed now.

Game 5 wraps up of the 2020 Finals

"Moments after exciting. One of the best, finals games in recent memory. Game Five Heat Eke Ekit out to live another day and joining Zach tonight now Chris. Bosh. It wasn't quite. Five to Allen for three. It was quite Bosch Talon. But this is up there with one of the biggest heat wins in history I mean. For sure. It's an incredible game. What did you think of it? Man You know I, it is starting to be one of those series that's just kind of grinding to a halt. You thought that was going to happen is not happening. Everything, every player that she thought was going give this particular stat line is not it's not really transpiring right now but I mean, you have to give all credit to the heat and I kept telling people this in all these interviews you know how can get? The Lakers. Over they've got the uniforms on and I just like, okay he don't WanNa be here but let me tell you something. These guys if there's anybody. Who would embrace a difficult situation? It is Erik Spoelstra and Butler seems to really. Thrive off of that and anticipate that. affected. So it's Kinda like a marker will really hard is. Like they say, Oh hey yeah, we're here now. We're supposed to be competing for championship. This is how it's supposed to be. You know is this all about survival now there they've lived to play another day and that's what you gotta do. I think it's time to just acknowledged. Once and for all that, the heat had become a great team you know there was always this question of. Did they benefit from the hiatus hiatus in everything the bubble shake the bucks more than other teams. Did they benefit from hayward getting injured a really good. You. Know this Lakers seem his lost one game in every playoff series. Until now, they have not lost to to a heat team that is missing its leading postseason score until this series Goran dragic that they could started to acknowledge Jimmy Butler. The top ten player. Yeah that'd be we're. GonNa. Have to rearrange the rankings because this dude just put up thirty five, twelve eleven in forty seven minutes forty seven minutes and five and a half whatever it is it's the game you play dull game. Survived forty thirteen seven on fifteen of twenty-one masterpiece from the Brian. James we can talk about the end of the game if you want. Everyone can focus on the end of the game, but the heat put themselves in position to win at the end of the game. Duncan. Robinson was unbelievable. They're shotmaking was outstanding and this team just keeps in with Bam out bio clearly, not one hundred percent missing layups, missing dunks, he can play better he. To acknowledge the heat now are are for real and just like you were saying, they're short handed to. So you know we need to keep that in mind You can only imagine how the series would be a little different Gora was out there and not that he's just going to be that dominating presence, but he gives them another layer. To their attack and you know they have that team cohesion down pack and I mean, I don't really know where the lapses with the Lakers are happening with dunkin' Robinson. He's making them pay every time. I. Mean He's moving himself up into Lee Company every game because you don't expect them the thing you know you don't think he's going to continue to go on the street. He's he's gone on and you'll eventually figure that a veteran is GonNa get into them and just chase him to the bathroom. But but it hasn't happened yet and I mean they're making them pay every single time and. Boy I. Tell You. We'll. We'll see what happens game six. Years especially with a hobbled a little bit man. That's one of the big cities we should probably get to. Well, let's let's talk about the end of the game real quick. Okay. So a Frank Vogel Lakers coach has come out after this game and said that there were bad calls at the end. Jimmy Butler getting to the line I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree he's probably GonNa give find. Lakers lead the Lakers up one. He, ball they run a beautiful fast play for Jimmy Butler gets A. He screwed good play Lebron not. because. Eighty one moving so whilst I foot Lebron on. Screen Lebron and she goes up but Jeff Van Gundy called on the broadcast he he floats see I mean. It in verticality your whole. Career. Frank Vogel helped invent it with Roy but. He floats. He fails right? That's a foul. Yes. Afoul he jumped into them. You know good call by the resident and you have to give you know usually referees are getting tough time I. Think they called a Great Game Day You can always look on both sides and say, well, if an if but if they're even in the game is tied and the players they're the ones who are dictating what happens out there. Hopefully, the game isn't called. You know at the end by you know free throws or anything like that but all. Evenly called Game I. Feel. Throws. Yeah, each team had their opportunities and. Jimmy Man Jimmy Butler man he's he's continuing to do it. Man I gotta I gotta you gotTa give him props he's going to make give him props I. Mean he put them on their own is back in those last minutes. Man I mean, the one leg get he's hidden one legged fadeaway. You know he's hitting the free throws down the stretch to dribble I mean he's He's shoot free throws when you're that exhausted and not just. Did you her second he was going to miss you like just. To, to, of course, you were not you think he's GonNa Miss One because as a player I know how I would feel I'm GonNa Miss One. On. THAT TIRED Like him going over when he was leaned over panting after getting fouled, you know they burned a time out after that but. Just him just still being able to muster up whatever could and having a concentration suppose still had Chris Bosh on his roster. He would have run that play where you went to the back side. And the coroner. You. Come on you. Play for last second shot several times. So okay. So it makes a two free throws come down. They call time out again, Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Call on this game all over this. Danny Green is in the game with a know Dunkin Robinson's on Danny Green. They know that they're going to run the screen to try to force Dunkin Robinson they know there's going to be a double with Lebron that's exactly what happens Lebron Drives Zach he drives into a crowd. There's three is three and a half guys there. He makes the basketball play Chris Bosh, which he is made for fifteen years since he's been starting to the playoffs, throws it to the Open Guy Danny. Green is a thirty eight percent three point shooter from that spot according to second spectrum is wide open. So I'll I'll throw them another couple of percentage points. And he missed it. Well I know Danny wants that one back. you know he made the right play it was a crowd I. I think he had the mentality to say, you're not going to beat us. We're sending everything in the kitchen saying and we're just going to close the shooters. They got the play that they were looking for. It was a tremendous play Danny Green slipped out. You kinda tell that the heat we're anticipating that play. Brahms. So able to make a very decent pass out the Danny grains got he got his hands on he stepped right into it. Any other time nine times out of ten he'll make that shot. You know he missed it what the interesting thing was on the rebound market Moore's he had plenty of time and he kind of made a quick decision Brian, opened on the right wing, which is always easy to say a new usually. Yeah. You throw it to ad but he had another big on you know and that was just man I was a tough light. It was very tough sequence. Watching film you. In it again now. You. Know Marquee Foucault Danny Green like he just handed the ball to hand off again Danny was right there funny though when he's when you through the LOB. Through. It I looked under the Rim I saw a d. and I thought again the balls just hand in mid Air I thought okay. I hate that decision because ad Mike, I'm putting the referees in play a little bit their down one, and then of course, the pass was that not an accurate he choked right let's just say. I'm not saying I would say that to mark keeps face in this moment. Do not say that Bryant don't say that. He. What do you WanNa say it's choked. Well he also as you pointed out before we started, you know they were setting the screen it they set for Jimmy on the on the go ahead. Free throws a flat screen by crowder and the flat screen is designed. You know Chris knows when your face in half court, it's designed to make defense. Gessler. Like which way to go, but it is an which wishing the pick he went he went from an angle to switching to the flat. kind of this weird in between space and if you don't, if if you're not demonstrative about your coverage, you'll get exploited

I Disagree with the Second Agreement and I Hope You Take It Personally by TK Coleman

"I disagree with the Second Agreement and I hope you take it personally by tk Coleman of tk. Coleman DOT COM. I like to think in terms of alternatives not absolutes that is instead of adopting an either or logic for problem solving and goal achievement prefer to think in accordance with both and strategies. For example, let's consider the notion of taking things personally self help author. Don Miguel Ruiz has done a magnificent job at popularizing and articulating what is often referred to as the second agreement. Here's a summary of the idea in Ruis. His own words quote whatever happens around you don't take it personally nothing other people do is because of you what is because of themselves all people live in their own dream in their own mind. They are a completely different world from the one we live in only take something personally we make the assumption that they know what is in our world and we try to impose our world on their world and quote. I think that's a very useful idea and I found myself in some pretty lengthy discussions where I've defended it to people who absolutely to test this concept teaches own. I suppose. But as for me, my life has been a heck of a lot easier since I started practicing the second agreement as a critical thinker however, I like to keep my options open. Rather. Than treating ideas like the second agreement as dogmas to be believed in a regard them as value neutral conceptual tools whose usefulness varies with context. Sometimes I like taking things personally even when I know I'm not being personally attacked I deliberately choose to act as if I am being conspired against I usually use this idea as a psychological trick for motivating myself. As long as I can employ the take it personally technique in a way that's healthy and isn't obsessive. I derive great practical value from it. Anyone who's ever played competitive spores probably understands concept very well choosing to look at your competition as the enemy or the bad guys can be an invigorating experience. One of my favorite ticket personally stories comes from Michael Jordan before a soldout contest between the New York Knicks and their rivals the Chicago Bulls Knicks, coach Jeff Van Gundy accused Michael Jordan of being a con man who deliberately X. friendly towards opposing players in order to soften them up and gain a competitive edge over them. Van. Gundy's harsh words were printed in Chicago newspaper and Jordan. saw them before the game. He took it personally and decided to play with a chip on his shoulder for the entire game Jordan had a personal vendetta to show van Gundy just how capable he was having a great game without being nice to his opponents. He did exactly what he set out to do by scorching the Knicks for a red hot one points and one point in the game after hitting an important basket Sharon looked at Van Gundy and yelled at him. One of Jordan's team as reported that Michael Love to us, criticism and hatred as a way of motivating himself a sports commentator who knew of this habit predicted that Jordan would score fiftypoints simply because he would be fired up. I've Angolans words. US, right. Jordan took it personally and brought the best out of him interestingly enough. Here's what Jordan said after the game quote. Guess I. Didn't make any friends out there tonight Jordan smiles I. Think those words were more geared to motivating his players but I don't think on the court they have befriended me, I don't go on the court expecting to make friends. But when I leave the court, I don't take what happened on the court away from me. We're only playing a game. I don't view it as a war away from the game and quote. In a video clip. Jordan talks about how he used that moment as motivation while not letting it get to him in an unhealthy way. Jordan disagreed with the second agreement and it worked does illustrates one of my favorite metaphors for life life a game. As an all games achieving one's goals requires the use of effective strategies. A good strategist is one who remains flexible. He uses what works without ever feeling the need to assign the status of costal truth to any of the strategies in his playbook. If taking it personally works good strategists takes it personally if taking it personally leads to stress and self destructive preoccupation with what others think then it strategist stops to him personally. This attitude of philosophical flexibility can be extended to issues and belief systems. Ideas are just tools sometimes are useful. Sometimes are not which ideas of you when you use them, and how you react to the results is your job to sort out as you sorting through the ever enlarging buffet of ideas being offered in the marketplace be should remember the admonition of Terence McKenna quote nobody smarter than you and quote. You know more about what's best for you than anyone else. So don't take anybody's ideas dogmatically specially now mind think critically about everything. Then take what works for you and leave the rest.

Clippers’ comeback leaves LeBron’s Lakers with plenty of Christmas regrets

"Mantras ends up on Lebron and then you come back down quite got the ball and now Danny Green's on them. And then the Lakers run a screen with pope where I think heartless was on Pope or something and they ended up getting Switzer. They could get Lebron going at beverly and again like I said. These weren't transition matchups. And at that point I'm like all right stop. Stop doing this Because this isn't this isn't fun anymore. later on in the game you know it was a Anthony Davis trying to go at mantras. which didn't really hurt the clippers? He hit a jumper. He missed another jumper. They did an awesome out of time out thing that will get you on this time. Now we're Vogel Got Mad. and He kinda called like another quick second time out where he got mad about something they did and how they were defending Kuwait going to his right off that horn stuff and The the Dow time out play was incredible but it was a lot of straight. Anthony Davis. What can you do against mantras again? Find Clippers pass that test and then it was Paul George defending ending Lebron straight up and it. It wasn't terrible but you know it's not something you do even with Paul George at his length and everything. You're not GonNa just let that happen George actually Lebron did get it going after starting. Oh a seven from three and then you look at the closing groups. The Lakers went. Beverly Shamet George. Kawhi by mantra as the Lakers Rondo Green. Lebron Anthony Davis after Lakers went with their accuse me the clippers went with their closing group at eight minutes left The Lakers brought in Davis at seven. Twenty Dwight was still in. But then this is the thing to always look at. Okay wait a minute. This was a game against maybe their best opponent they went with. Anthony Davis the five with those five minutes to go. Oh and I mentioned all of those matchups they're a little bit earlier The outta time out was awesome. It was a hand off where it was like a ball reversal van. Gundy mentions handoff. Lebron gets at the AD slips screen donkey. We go and I'm watching this expecting the whole time. Davis is going to go off. This is GonNa go off and it didn't really happen Offensively for what the Clippers did they WANNA WII really good post where I have these concerns where I go as Lou Williams holding the ball a little too much when you have George and cold out here with two minutes to go to close in a close game like what are you doing any the answers both. Yes and no because there was one possession where you looked like he was gonna run it down to the clock where he had Lebron on. 'EM EYESO- no help and I'm Mike is just going to go with Lebron and not let anybody else touched the ball here. Because I don't know that I love that despite loose scoring prowess But they didn't do that coadjutor. Really good post position coming from the right block to the left block and got fouled by Danny Green it was good foul you got fouled again. He hit all of his free throws. And that's really kind of what happened in this game. Is that the clippers. Made their last sixteen free throws throws and the Lakers didn't really know what they wanted to be. They they just kind of went one on one match ups and the shots didn't go in and it's very important though after after the Lakers get the ball back with shacklock off down three Lebron's going at beverly. I almost didn't have this in the notes and I just double checked here by the way I looked at it and go. Okay you know. Are they going into the clippers. GonNa foul. They're up three. They don't Lebron had a hard time. Kinda getting free a beverly beverly got his body right into them. Am I mean that guy's unbelievable defending bigger guys not that he's GonNa shut down Lebron but he did on that possession and he blocked a shot and my least favorite review in sports is is when the Guy Swipes at the ball out of your hands like science on the Super Mythbusters Slow Motion Cam is gonNA show. The ball usually always getting like be out out of the shooter's hands last. But the intent of what you would always call was. Okay if you have the bond somebody swipes it out and it just happens to be that a molecule. Your pinky is the last thing to touch. It's the ball. I could still off the other guy I I bet there's people listening to this that are disagreeing with me saying that it's it's it's better this way. It isn't better this way. It sucks this way. And and I'm the furthest thing from really being a fan of either team so has nothing to do with it. I just don't think that that's really. What the spirit of the rule is and I know they reversed it and they called it out? That's your ballgame But I I hate it I hate it

Without Kevin Durant, Game 4 is must-win for Warriors

"Talking NBA finals with Chris, Mannix Klay Thompson who missed game three will play game four Kevin Durant whom this the last eight games will not play game. Four Steve Kerr said there's a good chance Katie playing game five or six Klay Thompson spoke about what it would mean if miss the finals entirely. Well, it suck if Kevin can't come back. I mean, I still think we'd have a good chance to win the finals. But obviously. That takes a huge hit. Think it would make us to cut favor anymore without him, you know teams very good. We just love the candor of the Golden State Warriors, like as a team like Klay, whatever. But dream on Jay handed. Steph is usually pretty Cantu. I love that team like is this. Well Kerr's as well, who is the favourite in this series of Katie doesn't return? Oh, it's oh I mean, I still again, we can have different conversation on Monday. If Klay Thompson comes back and looks exactly like the Klay Thompson, we saw before the injury. But if he is significantly slowed it's impossible to look at this series and say Toronto isn't the favorite now we discussed this yesterday. I disagree with Jeff Van Gundy said when he said that this war is team wasn't a playoff team, but it certainly isn't a final team, and it's probably not a team that gets out of the Western Conference as currently constituted so without Kevin Durant. And with a hobble Klay Thompson, Toronto is, is a clear favourite in my eyes. Tonight. What's important is where is clay and not only wears he during the game.

Anthony Davis, New Orleans And STAN Van Gundy discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"STAN Van Gundy is with us and we have been remiss. Okay. And I'm sorry standing Gundy is not said anything anywhere on any of ESPN's one million platforms about the Anthony Davis situation. I don't know what he thinks. So let's begin their stand. You saw that happen. And you thought what? Well, a few things I think first of all I think fans and everybody else can be assured that nothing like this will ever happen again with a player publicly requesting a trade that fifty thousand dollar fine on Anthony Davis will only makes twenty three and a half million year, the deterrent value there. So sick so strong. This'll be the last time this happened. So I think you can be assured of that. I it's sort of amazing me the the resentment that's out there by a lot of people both fans and media about this whole issue of the players are controlling where they wanna play in who they wanna play with. And he's forcing his way to LA in the whole thing. And I'm just wondering why it it's so upsetting to people that someone would try to take control of their own careers. I mean, most people do that. But for some reason with players, and I think we know in the NBA that a big part of it is race. But people get very upset about the players controlling this thing. And then I love the the last thing is I just love all the trade talk because people want the super teams, and so the trades they propose like Boston. You would get either Jason Tatum or. Jalen Brown in Marcus smart in a in a pick. That would be great. And then the guy right? Imagine what Boston would have. Yeah. But New Orleans isn't going for that, you know, and that the Lakers might have to throw in Brandon Ingram with with Lonzo ball, and Kyle Kuzma might this guy's one of the players in the league. And then my favorite line from one of the articles is he wrote about some tradenet forget, which one that New Orleans would be well within their rights to ask for player. A and b New Orleans can ask through over the hill. I want to ask for their within their rights. It's almost like people have this idea that New Orleans has an obligation to accommodate Anthony Davis. Look what Anthony Davis did in Rich, Paul? I have no problem with as a matter of fact think it helps the teen in a way because they let them know right away. New Orleans can trade him to anyone they want to trade him to he's got this year and next year. They don't have to limit themselves to anywhere that he wants to go and they're going to make the best deal for themselves. And I personally don't think they'll probably make it by the trade deadline. They increase relaxing yesterday. They should ask for LeBron. Well, you know, what that's where you would start him. I think people talk about Boston you'd start with kyri. And then and then if not basically for Anthony Davis, you if you're going to protect one guy, you basically have to offer up everything else, particularly now at the trade deadline.

James Harden's 60-point triple-double made NBA history

"Last night. Jake's became the first player since March of two thousand to score sixty points and grabbed fifteen rebounds in the same game. Week effort because to God's looked at never a good thing for your now, get stand when you say Stu gods had the thought before I did. It's really it's no good. Let's be honest. I stole it from somewhere. I know you stole by the way. Guts it's nine thirty four mountain times. The second best nugget from stand Van Gundy about James harden, which makes it about the ninth best noggin because he's had nothing. But James harden, nuggets, he's on the James harden beat he's like, what would what window or system? Lebron? The n Van Gundy. His James harden. Go ahead. What's your second? Best talking. Not only is James harden. A great player. He's the hero of the analytics guys who only want players to shoot free throws layups in threes last night in New York. He became the first player in league history to shoot twenty three's and twenty free throws in the same game. That's a good one. Stan you should be proud of that one. We'll give you a hard time. But that was a good one. And finally, the best James harden nugget from this week is. Speaking of hardens, free throw attempts. He shut twenty five last night and leads the league shooting almost twelve again, focus on him being given calls as a major reason for his success. But the fact is if we eliminated free throws and only counted field goals twos. And threes heartened would still. Yes. Those final twos. Yeah. He brought it after you took his original original thought I wanted to ask you about a story segues awkwardly. It fascinated me yesterday in the Atlantic because it was exhaustively reported, and I believed to be among these public figures who have shamed themselves. Louis C K Kevin Spacey. I believe it. About that.

Hour 3: Stan's Nuggets

"Stan Van Gundy has had theme related nuggets. The last couple of weeks is this theme related or is this just a hodgepodge of free flowing. Doug it. No, it's theme related again. Then. All right. Well, what are the three nuggets? Well, our theme today is NBA centers. And we'll start with a blast from the past the four fifty point games already this season from NBA players. Got me looking at the history of fifty point games in the NBA. Michael Jordan is second in NBA history with thirty one fifty point games. But the man who is I will Chamberlain had forty five fifty point games in one season. Hundred eighteen in his career, the still. Thanks for being useless as number two. Stan. Nikola yokich. The Denver Nuggets center is currently tagged with LeBron James for seventh in the NBA in assists at seven point seven a center has not been in the top ten in assists. Since Wilt Chamberlain was second in the league fifty one years ago. That joker wilt this stilts that and the number one nugget from STAN Van Gundy this week is I'm gonna go with one of my former guys here last year. Andre Drummond became only the second player in the past twenty six years to average fifteen points and fifteen rebounds in season. Now, he is on pace to become the first player to do it in back to back seasons. Since Moses Malone forty years ago.

In his praise for how Aaron Rodgers inspires him and tie Montgomery hosts to God's right when he says he's been an unselfish player, but he according to Mike silver of NFL dot com. Mike silver was saying that that was an act. Insubordination that Montgomery was upset before that series. He was told not to come out of the end zone and he came out of the end zone anyway, Andy fumbled. And here's time Montgomery with what sounded like a reasonable explanation to us. He might be lying about being in subordinate. But this sounded reasonable kicked the returnable where was it? At that point in time.
