Zion Williamson Leaving NBA Bubble For Urgent Family Matter
"We begin today with news that Zion. Williamson has left the NBA bubble. Bubble in Orlando to attend an urgent family medical matter. The New Orleans Pelicans Zion intends to rejoin the team at an unspecified later date. We'll bond your thoughts on Zion leaving and what this could mean in the bigger picture, well Tony Me. The first thing is I hope this urgent family. Medical matter turns in becomes not urgent, and whoever this is, and whatever it is is improved better. So, that's the first thought and my second thought is. This is what people as they get older as they move from Zion's twenty today in their twenties, and thirties and forties is what we do it all the time. This is what deal with and players and coaches, and this is what your life becomes as you get older sadly, but necessarily the difference of course is this pandemic? The difference you you you normally you leave, and these guys have enough wherewithal to fry fly privately. If they want and most times they do and they they come back. Back and they juggle their tension between what is going on with their family member and ball, and they still have to do that, but now it's only you have protocol that you have to answer to, and you could be gone anywhere from say four days to fourteen days depending on things like if you're tested every day while you're gone, so we. We don't know and let's face it. There's twenty two teams in the bubble and not sixteen largely because Zion is one of those six extra teams in the NBA wanted to see him in the postseason. No question about that there's there's no reason on earth for the Washington. Wizards and the Sacramento Kings and whole bunch of these teams to be in this round, Robin and playoff to get into the playoffs in his created right because Zion, Williamson, second only in my opinion to Bron James as a television draw, and they WANNA. See Him in the playoffs. I Echo your statements that we hope that this isn't something traumatic for the family that should go without saying but testing the. The protocol by understanding correctly is you need to test on your own every day? In order that? When you come back, you can spend only four days out instead of fourteen. That's asking a lot of anyone when they've left the bubble to be able to do that to me. The larger question is, do you make exceptions know and to me for people like Zion and Lebron James who try to make an exception, but where where there is contagion, you can't do of course. By the Way Zion has team. Okay, and his team can help in that regard. They may have to send somebody WHO's in charge of testing. They want him air. No, there's no exception is the is the is the virus make an exception? Is the virus go? Lebron is gone, then look a little bit too big and strong for. Let me let me go over here. No, they're not doing that, so there's no exceptions, but you hope one that that this urgent matter becomes less urgent, and to that Zairean could get back quickly. Administer this I mean. The the Pelicans come on David. Griffin is not some dope going to do what they can as a franchise who support him and make sure he has what he needs to transition back to the bubble.

"washington wizards" Discussed on The Full 48
"Louis Feed Bank and feeding America. So you guys have been really engaged is bid. Just been part of kind of the way you you know many ways in which you pull the team together at a time like this you can kind of make me channel guys into the cause here and you know focus on on what everybody can do proactively. Certainly everything starts with with the generosity of our ownership group and Ted Leonsis head of monumental. Sports is always had the double bottom line. We have very much about being great neighbors and caring about the community around us and it just trickles down to everybody and organization so the wizard side our players actually approached said. Hey what can we do? How can we help? And you try to solve things. I start locally in offbeat that are on the front lines in DC. The healthcare workers that was something or out more. Nate and ward eight is an area. That's at as has Has Really recognize a lot of the economic recovery of other parts of DC is still up in common in our facilities kind of the temple of Ordway to we want to reach out and having relationships with hospitals that are closest toward a is there on the front lines working with the Kobe patients and stuff so that was just a small thing. Everybody on our team is doing something. Either here in DC something in their own hometown to making the world a better place if it's feeding people if it's if it's extra money For for gift cards for people that are having trouble making ends meet every players out there trying to do stuff and Bradley and John Certainly been at the front of that but all of our players have reached out and make connections and made donations the thing that the feeding the front miss a real simple way that we could show our gratitude for people that are really putting themselves at risk every single day to help help helpfully get people back on their feet. Yeah no that's great As it has been very cool just seeing the the NBA has been. I'm sure I'm sure the other sports have to probably. I'm not paying close attention but I do think the NBA's been really good On this across the board being really engaged and also not just the all the contributions and everything else but Steph curry interviewing Dr Fao. She an all day thing. It's it's been it's been cool. It's been very fun to see all right. So if you'll indulge me on this I I was on a podcast with Fred Katz. Great Wizards beat writer for the athletic. A few months back and I I've laid out why I think and this is the awkward conversation to have reported to. Gm We're friends. So I know you'll take this the right way. I'm not advocating. The Bradley beal should leave the wizards. But I've I've kind of laid out a few times including on Fred's podcasts. Why think it feels to me almost inevitable in this in this era of player empowerment player movements superstar movement? That that we're on a path here so let me lay out the the because it's only fair if I if I'm going to put this case out there tell me what I'm wrong. Or what the counter argument is I look at bill and I say he's. He's turning twenty seven in June. Two Time All star eight years in coming off one of his best seasons certainly statistically but did not make the all star team probably in large part because of the wizards record. That's that's held him back a little bit and certainly a point of frustration. He's he's he's been upfront about that. been in the playoffs. Four Times has not been past the second round and his his co star. John Wall is turning thirty in September and coming off of one of the toughest injuries in the NBA to recover from. And so my feeling is I would totally understand it if I'm not. I'm not advocating this. But if I were his agent maybe if I were anybody in his camp I'd be saying well you know what you gotta you gotTa look at where you are. You're firmly in your prime. Your Co Star is coming back from this really tough injury. He's about to turn thirty wizards got some some short-term cap issues here still you know Tommy Sheppard I know zoom be doing all these great things now as as GM but can you afford to wait that long. Bradley beal to me just seeing the way. This league has gone the last five to ten years and you and I have been around about the same amount of time in this league. You we've seen were things have shifted and guys are taking it on themselves to say you know what I I. It's it's my career. I'm going to steer it and if I don't WanNa wait or if I think there's a better path to winning somewhere else I'm GonNa go. We've seen it many many times. We don't need to go through all the examples but the basic outline of it and then the last piece of that is this too. I know that modern medicine is great. And I'm sure John Wall as you've noticed working his tail off to get back to who he was but no one's one hundred percent after an Achilles so even if he's at eighty percent ninety percent whatever it is even at one hundred percent they were not getting out of the second round in prior years. So I look at all that and I think it would be reasonable to feel like this is where this is going to tell me where I'm wrong or what I missing or what. The counterargument is for bills. Long term. Future. With the wizards well. It's always something that I take into consideration what you're saying certainly but I I will tell you this in no offense at all but you don't know Bradley beal not putting on the scale that Bradley's his own man and you're right it does happen around the League but he made a decision this summer to extend with us in his whole thing is I want to be that I plays with one team mile entire friend of mine entire career. I WanNa be the guy that made the change and help us. Elevate this franchise and go win a championship. And he has strong shoulders to carry this franchise. We built this team from three years ago when we were in the playoffs. Last you know the only players left on our roster next season We had his John Wall and Bradley. Beal you know the NBA changes fast. We add team. That was About eight minutes from going to the conference finals against Boston broke down in the fourth quarter on the road of a great series and since then John Really hasn't been healthy. Radley got us to the play offs the following year basically on his own We lost Toronto in six games. And then ever since then we've add difficult injuries but we changed our entire roster this summer when I sat down with Bradley actually at the end of last season we did our exit interview. Ask them what is it? GonNa take for you to believe in us to believe there was a change. I was the interim general manager Russell. Tell me what it's GonNa take for you to be part of this franchise moving forward and first and foremost is hey. Let's let's have the best possible work ethic highest character. Guys guys just WanNa work their butts off and get better everyday. That sets the tone that Bradley beal wants and we did that. We we change our roster completely as I said. Have a lot of young guys. We have some key additions. Britan's Ish Smith you know and I think when you add some of the thesis that we did Through the drafts. Through some trays. We kinda netted out with a pretty exciting roster with eight guys. Twenty three and younger that that can grow and Bradley's these is in the prime of his career and I think you'll be all NBA team this year as a matter of fact but I think he really was excited about what this first season. What he saw under under our leadership. I believe that he has been unbelievable partner in all the building that we've done he's been consulted on everything. I ask his input constantly. He's been. He has a great relationship with our coaching staff. And and we talk about Ford Player. Development is and all of our young players. Bradley's player development went up this year. He took his game to another level. he was robbed of an All Star. Opportunity this year. For whatever reason the coaches didn't select him I think he's made a point to make sure that they understand. It might have made a mistake and I see him being on the NBA team. As I said those are things. I don't think matters Bradley as much so. Let's get to the playoffs win games. That's what he's about in again. I I know you've interviewed him over the years but really being around I've seen the transformation she walked into our doors. The day he turned nineteen years old. And I've spent pretty much his whole career with him and I think we have always been very transparent with each other and he made it clear to me. This is where I WANNA be. I WanNa win and let's put the pieces together. I'm patient. I'll do whatever we have to do. This year will get John Back. That's GonNa be a big piece but we're going to grow and guess what I'm getting better every day. And that's Bradley saying that. And I know he can help carry this franchise if we've been patient but we're not going to be very patient very long. We want to win. And I think all these young players have shown no the drafting of Bradley was very fond of that. Some of the additions mobile bogner and obviously troy ground continues to grow. And you start throwing names out there and I don't WanNa leave anybody out but we have plenty of good young players to go with Nice roster and I think the addition of diabetes opened Bradley's IRA as the two brads used to be in the best shooter every Single Day in the gym. He goes into the guy who can challenge on that and and that really helps spread the floor and improve Brad. These opportunities on Florida's have a better shoes with him and adding Thomas Brian over the last year. All these guys Bradley if he didn't mention them by name you mentioned them by trade. This is what we need and we went out and acquired those things and now you've got to be patient and grow. I'm nobody's more impatient than I am and I really determined. I think this year we were on a pretty good trajectory. Some bad injuries at key moments of the season where we lost ruined for twenty plus we lost Wagner. We we're in women the doors open. We'll be in the nice spot you know. We were still competing for a playoffs spot this year in spite of all the injuries have John. So I make the case that I'd take my cues from Bradley and we talk every day and he loves what we're doing these excited about teacher think he's up for the challenge and I know he's under contract so we're in a good place. And he's never given any other indication other than how much he loves his ear and what she's looking forward not even just. I always going to his you know his Jersey to the rafters one day but it only matters damn splitting of Jamshid band up there. It's up to us to put that together. We have great leadership with Ted Leonsis. That's where all franchises are going to succeed or fail based on owner. Ted Ted has been the most committed owner of ever dealt with professional sports and he's all about championships he's got the capital's race abandoned the mystics raise the banner arena football teams. Raise the banner. So course whereas the wizards we're going to do that and we have. What is our absolute goal moving forward? But you can't cut cut corners to get there. We gotTA build it the right way. You mentioned financially. I think we're going to be in a good place moving forward. I cannot predict what the caps gonNA look like. That's not here to discuss Able to add through the draft that through free agents certainly get a roster better when you forward and that's what I'm looking forward to with Brad so at a long answer to your question so it was a long question so you know in a long preamble by me so it deserved a long detailed answer so see what people don't get to see right now or maybe they saw t shirt but it. It says we're not shutting down either of us going to on that. I'm GONNA tell you this Bradley bill for every indication he's given us. He is very happier and moving forward. He's looking forward to the challenge. And that's all great to hear and that is the kind of detailed and thoughtful response I would expect from ut ship and listen ultimately abundantly clear to fans..

Norman Orioles internationals fan of cat splits. I mean, I grew up in Oreos fan, but I loved brace harbor, and I really just root for the whole town. So I'm diehard Orioles fan, but I'm also going to root for the nets. I just want to have been a Baltimore Colt fan before they left or no I was I was alive, but I was already Redskins. I mean, they left a one eighty two eighty four. So that something like that eighty three eighty four somewhere. I remember. And this is what sucks is that? I remember just my from like from like zero to ten. It was just three Super Bowls. And then at like eleven I think we got our last one which was in nights on the Redskins. And then I was just like, oh, we're probably going to be in this all the time and then thin. Well, that's what's going to happen to like, the veterans and all all these kids who are lucky enough to be born in the nineteen nineties and remember two thousand the first one or two years in two thousand one, you know, it's going to be like, you know, there was there was kids born when I was born in nineteen sixty eight and then they got to watch Dan Marino. I'm just saying as far as just being good and competitive I was compared to damn or because that guy was the best I ever saw Joe Montana. But even then I think damn arena with Bill Walsh. She definitely wins one. I only remember only remember bad knees Marino. That's that's where I was back. That is a killer, which is bad everything when I got in. He was already in the in the down trodden was him. He came in. And he was with Don Shula and Don Shula. Like a man was a man. But but by then everybody had caught up with them stolen all his fucking tricks. And he was on his he was in the final ten years of going back to like the nineteen fifties. I want to say he was on the giants at one point. And he was offensive and defensive coordinator. And the other guy was Tom Landry. Those were the two guys if something like that. I always forget who the hell was. But anyways. I just remember they went from bog greasy to fucking Dan Marino sitting in this kicked our ass for like, I twenty years of me watching the patriot. Couldn't take it. And I look at the dolphins fans now like this still waiting. I feel for the next. Dan marino. My cousin is the biggest dolphins fan. He named his dog Marino.

However, the upstart Washington Wizards pulled within two in the fourth quarter before Golden State pulled away and beat the wizards in our nation's Capital, One twenty six two one eighteen warriors use their size to score most of their points inside that seventy points in the paint is they were going up against a smaller wizards lineup newcomer DeMarcus cousins in his third game is warrior, seventeen points, six rebounds in twenty four minutes as you can see you know, when he gets down there. It's pretty tough to stop. He had a couple of plays in the game where he sealed his guy. We threw the ball over the top nothing. Anybody can do. So it's amazing that he's on our team. We have this new new weapon to us, and he's been great. He loves playing with our guys and

"Is that they won't be DC anymore. All these things that say DC like this this great welcome song. Though for your Washington Wizards. Check. Getting funky with it. Yelling at me. Claiborne, who by the way is the producer this program. Had African American believes that whenever I enjoy music that apparently is only written for performed and geared toward the African American audience. If I started to enjoy it in my own very white way. I'm in some way, violating some real that I'm crossing some boundary that I'm I'm not. I don't know why I have to bring race into everything. But I know exactly what that was that look. God we don't have cameras in the studio, very ugly. I like that song. And and it's a great way to get the crowd pumped up for your Washington Wizards, and they'd have to throw it out because it says welcome to DC, and you can't be anymore. If you're state because DC is the district of Columbia, and you're not a district anymore. Goodbye district. No, more DC. I like that. They want to call it new Columbia last time. I checked right. New Columbia or some stupid thing. I am a guy. Here's my biggest argument. Everyone says well, this is taxation without representation we're being taxed by the federal government. And yet we don't have a vote in the house of representatives or in the Senate that's taxation without representation and there, right? So instead of focusing on the representation part, which is not going to happen. How about we focus on the taxation part? How about how about we? I bet you if you made that argument you'd actually win the hearts and minds of the Republican party who ultimately is going to stop this or allow it to happen. And the American people. This is outrageous that we are taxed without any representation. So stop taxing us. This would become Hong Kong on the Potomac. This would be the most prosperous city in America when you take the taxes out, no more federal taxes. No more federal mandates. No, more federal anything. You can't tell us what to do and take our money. If you don't let us have some sort of representation I actually by that. I agree. So instead of fighting for presentation just say so stop telling us what to do. Let us be our own little island of tax free governance here. And let's see what happens can be amazing kidney party in the district. The second that happens. What is your argument for or against granting statehood to the district of Columbia Eleanor, Holmes, Norton, your nonvoting delegate to the house of representatives made a big deal about saying, this is her first and frankly, only act of this one hundred sixteenth congress. It's gonna be HR fifty-one representing the fifty first state, and it's going to get a lot of discussion. So you get the first word here. Washington WMA L nation. What do you say a Mon ammonium as ammonium? I always get this wrong. It's a moan he is in the district. You're on wwl mayo. Why don't you want to be a state of mind? This'll be a great thing. I could say a Mona's calling from new Columbia. Nah. I mean me being a black American living in DC. I mean me personally, I don't want to give up five hundred thirty five representatives that at my disposal. Now, be mindful of DC has to shadow sandwiches and a delegate they have no power. So I have the privilege to go to any Senator any Representative of the. Speak more calls to it. They have to take into consideration, but he just defer to Eleanor or to the shadow sentences. I have access so your reality. I have five hundred thirty five people speak on behalf. I just that's interesting. So you feel like instead of having no representation. You have Uber. Representation. You can take your pick from everyone. They're down capital. So what kind of response do you get when you do that? You know, when I tell people, you know, look at me like when I went to White House. I didn't go to Illinois. The shuttle Senator Senator from went out my original state of South Carolina. And they gave me passes in there. If I wanted to talk to somebody from Utah. I can't I, you know, people just don't really understand the benefit. They really do have but not being a state sting. And by the way, you do have a vote for the presidency that there was a law passed it grants representation in the electoral college. So if anything we three yes. So if anything you have the the president's is your Representative, that's the one federal office that has power that you vote for exactly. And I just as firmly believe that, you know, I don't want to give up those benefits of five hundred and thirty five down to one. All right. Let's get a check DC for the that. They try to do they can pull the purse-strings. They get too crazy. It is kind of nice to have that last little after Muriel and her pals down there at the district office try to pass laws then you got the oversight committee. That says. Yeah, I don't think so about thank you very much. All right. So that's a moaned. This is in his own interests there in the district, and he says, no. Refined leave us alone. All right. What about Donald in? Woodbridge, Donald you're on wwl. Yes, sir. Hi, how are you doing good? What what's your take on this? I don't think it should be a state a lot of people forget that the he was actually donated by landowners tend to federal government or to be the nation's capital, right? And they don't own any land technical like Maryland in Virginia. They have state land. Right. She does not have the Senate, actually. Right. It was it was landowners in Maryland that donated it at that time back in eighteen you know, it wasn't eighteen hundred it was seventeen ninety four. I want to say or ninety three. But there were people living here, and by the way, when it was officially designated as the district of Columbia and became the seat of federal power the people who were living here, Donald they protested. They said, hey, wait a minute. You're disenfranchising us. We don't have a vote anymore. So this does go all the way back to the moment. DC was created. Yes. Take away. The fact that. Federal. Yeah. I mean, that's true. It's a historical fact, but it doesn't necessarily change the principles behind the fact that the people who live here don't have direct representation in in congress. Donald is. It's a fair point. And I think it's in bad, by the way, you know, Maryland might have something to say about hold on a minute. We this used to be our state aright bridge Virginians. You have nothing to say about this. Because the only land you donated the you you took it back except for the airport. All we got his ear a stink airport out of Virginia. Well, that's not true. We took Arlington from you to the cemetery. So we got that as well. That's something and the Pentagon. All right other than the Pentagon. What have the Romans done for us Brian in Alexandria? You're on WBAL. Hey, brian. Hi, thanks for taking my call. Yeah. Just a couple of quick points. One is it was. I'm against it. I get I can't use the argument that the constitution. So the thing about the taxation is that the it's a federal district and the big thing about that. Is that if it became a state, you know, the thing about it now is? It's a military installation speak, and it's very easy as a federal district for the federal government. If God forbid we had some sort of urgency.

I thought he was a mid west dude because it's been Green Bay so long but his hometown Chico is in Butte county, which has been hard hit by those by those fires I feel I don't know. I feel a lot of these charitable social media drives from athletes that we see a lot of we don't always see their own money being put up and this is a doodoo who's putting up seven figures. You know, that's a that's a number that gets your attention a million dollars. I some other athlete just donated one hundred thousand I can't recall who that's a great thing. But. A million is is terrific. So many athletes live out there. And some have, you know, tweeted about losing homes and and stuff like that. You know, that's that's the best.

I mean, she's plugged in from, you know, the pen and paper dot com side as opposed to Steven A who went down, and sort of sort of made sure that he was face to face with some of these protagonists and antagonists in the story.

And I get that. But you see, ladies and gentlemen, I like my schedule. And I never apologized for my schedule. I got people looking at me on national television right now. Listen to me on national radio right now. What the hell is he talking about? It's very very simple. My social life matters to me damn it. And I'm not apologizing for it. I happen to like the city of Washington DC. I happen to light Philadelphia, Pennsylvania my second home because I worked there for seventeen years as a reporter for the Philadelphia Kwara happen to love New York City, my home where I was born and raised born in the Bronx raised in Hollis, Queens, New York baby even like Boston because I think their fan base is phenomenal. Don't get much better than Boston. Celtics fans. I'm here to tell you that right now doesn't get much better. But having said all of that because of my work schedule when I'm out west, I'm in two places, I'm in LA on obviously in Oakland because damn it. That's where the worry is are. I just in a flying anywhere else. Anybody else? I wanna see out west. I'll see when they come to L A or Oakland. Those cities that I mentioned that you and eat I'm very very busy, man.

Trae young is going to be he's going to be nice. And get me started. How I feel about Miami. We all know how much I miss out beach. I just gave LeBron James for leaving to go back to Lake Erie. Take me from south beach, sunshine Biscayne Bay, chilling in a Florida sun covering basketball and the next season the open other season, I'm in four degree weather off Lake Erie doing sports and outside. Why the hell do you think? I didn't like LeBron James, very simple. But that's what under the bridge because he's an LA now. And I love him for it. He's all right with me. But the east coast it's about Boston New York. Philly d c in anytime knows they live up to snuff, go off. Now, you might say well, Steven Huckabee you're going over both the Knicks. It's very very simple. The Knicks perpetually stink. So many times you expect me to say it. I like this Steve mills and Scott Perry and David facility because they're moving in a different direction. I'm going to give them a mulligan. This year next year. I'll be all up in them. If they stink up the joint then and they don't get a marquee free agent free agency.

You see when you look at the Washington Wizards and how awful they have been to in eight second worst record in the Eastern Conference. Let's be very very clear about what I'm trying to say the Washington Wizards right now stink. They smell like skunk soup pass gas. Somebody's gotta say it.

Wizards have had a rough start to the season. Now one in five after yesterday's one thirty six one four loss to the clippers over the weekend. Wizards guard John wall had some criticism for the team saying everybody is on their own agenda. We showed glimpses when we do stuff as a team. We should how good we can be. And then we go back to try and do it individually, and that's mostly on the defensive end, not helping each other out not team, rebounding. And that's what's killing us. One of the teams new acquisitions Austin rivers seemingly responded by telling the athletic, quote, I've been trying not to step on people's toes because I'm the new guy. So I'm just trying to fit in. That's not who I am. I'm not a fit in type of guy. I'm a guy who goes out there and attacks people's throats and quote, buy or sell the wizards making the playoffs despite their early season struggles, there's a lot on Packer Austin rivers, and I'm not a fitting kinda guy at tabulates throats, the attack people's throats that your teammates of the kind of guy. I I'm going to take it to a very bizarre place. I was actually thinking about this this morning. I'm glad that you guys did this. I'm glad this is one of the buyer sells because. Who is one of the people that I have said such a cancer such a locker room plague that his mere presence will get you fired as a coach that'd be Dwight Howard Dwight Howard. I know he hasn't been activated yet he's going to be able to play pretty soon probably this week. I am telling you. Dwight Howard is the reason that the notion of this team making the play offs is sell. He is a player who on the basketball for in the locker room in terms of the win loss column. Subtract from the sum of all human joy. That's not good good for locker. We want you enjoy tragedy. It was a rough game on Sunday for bucks quarterback. Jameis Winston once again against the Bengals he completed eighteen of thirty five passes for two hundred and seventy six yards but threw four interceptions with just one touchdown. He was pulled from the game in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick who led the team all the way back from eighteen point deficit where they would go on to lose by three earlier today. Had coached our cutter announced that Fitzpatrick will start the team's next game against the Panthers. Buy or sell. It's safe to officially labelled. Jameis Winston as a bust. So he.

"To not only continue to reach their goals, but for him to continue to have a level of excellence in the game is he wants to get back to plan at that level while katie's on rust, not this was a unique marriage because it was the first time to MVP's row in the same team at the same time and they both under third. So it took a little time to figure out and you try to defer make them feel comfortable things like that. But as they continue to add to the star lineup deteriorated the bench. So they're going to need at productivity Klay still shop is still shooting and playing well also plays clay's not shooting that well right now from three, but but here, but here's the thing. I wanna make sure I stress what makes this work is both of these guys usually your best player needs to ball. They don't need the ball. Let me repeat that. They don't need the ball. They both come off screens. They both get initiate often. They start on the strong side they can start or no weeks. I started to top the Florida star on the side of the floor. And so now it just unlocks their entire game. But to officiant guys there's going to flirt with the more important step fifty from the floor forty from three ninety from the line is due to snipe and one thing about this duo, which is different like, Chris, Paul and heart. And there's only one basketball twain, LeBron only when basketball how are they going to make this work. It's gonna be hard to make this work. We're gonna take turns one time this year night. Then it's our night. It's not like that with this to like the way that the warriors played the fact that you made a great point that they don't need the ball the way that this team shares the ball and Steve Kerr's, the maestro at all. Like you. Do not hear about any of this. Oh, there's only one ball tonight tonight. It's going to be closed steps ninety miles gonna be katie's night. Like, they have a harmonious thing that's going on. They seem to just like make each other play better. The more one of plays better. What an engine? To that has to get knowledge. His Draymond green. If you notice a lot of shots that take place in particular when Steph relocate so they may throw it the Draymond. He maybe get get often. Rebound may do a dribble. Handoff action. The defense clearly hasn't figured out that he's not gonna shoot the ball, especially if you had the chance to give it to Steph theft. Just relocates kicks it to him in the corner. Bouma knocks it down so him being a Swiss army knife Klay still locking down on defense allows everybody still fall into their roles and function. Optimal precision worse. Steve Kerr, a great job managing their minutes, and sort of keeping one of them on the floor. And then doing all that it's doing a great job on the other side of that the Washington Wizards are quietly imploded like usually this happens liquor in the season or in the playoffs. But it is bad right now if the wizards they are one in five and last night against the clippers it was late at night, if you're on the east coast they lost but twenty eight points to the clippers and it did not look good at all for the wizards. Jalen, rose, what is happening to the wizards. Let me just say some real quick about the clippers. They're better than people think they got a lot of season vest is going to show up play har-. Lou will Tobias Harris Herrell they got Beverly like a bunch of Grizzle vets gallon Nari, and they have a great coach. So I'm not really surprised that they actually beat the wizards on their home floor in LA on the west coast trip. You know, a lifestyle things comes with that as well. But for the wizards there may off season acquisition to white Howard is in plan, but they're not Dwight Howard away from being a team. They are. No, they're not tweet. How is that gonna come in? And save this basketball. I didn't say he would save them. What I'm saying is he helped solidify their lineup for me one of the glaring things. You have to point out is and you can't judge players nowadays based on their salary, but in salary cap sports, like the NBA NFL when you dedicate resources to one player that means you're taking them away from another asset you provide..

I don't think no walkies. Fourth, I don't think Miami's. Fourth, you're missing a team that's been there pretty consistently in the top four in the least. In the east. It's not like going in my head to a map. Yeah, Miami now, Miami, it is the Washington Wizards at forty, eight win. They've got Milwaukee with forty-seven Indiana, the six with forty three, Miami, the seven with forty one in the pistons, the eight with thirty nine wins. All right now, Western Conference, the one we care about Golden State, Golden State sixty four wins that is number one, Houston, number two, with fifty four. Utah, Utah. Number three. Actually, number two tied for number two with fifty, four wings Lakers Lakers. Nope. Tied for the eight seed with forty six wins. Okay. So that means they're, they're valuing. I know they have it as the most improved team in the obvious. Even though I don't think they're right. Portland must be a head of the Portland. They've got with only thirty nine wins weird yet and get. They've got them noticeably worse Antonio their San Antonio, they've got with forty wins again, missing the playoffs. They go, okay, warriors rockets jazz, and then a team that was on the top four last year. I thought top four last year, Oklahoma City Loma cities. Number four with fifty, three wins.

They've got the Lakers pelicans with forty, six wins in the Spurs with forty wins. And I think you and I are both sticking. I'm sticking fifty wins. What are you sticking up? Yeah, I think they're fifty one t I'd bet the over the over forty eight point five. I think they're going to be fifty or above LeBron himself is worth. Fifteen wins were fifteen wins. So what did they have the clippers at thirty three wins in speaking of the clippers they they blew out Bruce Bon. We've had a chance to talk about this. I've nothing. Against Bruce Bowen. And Bruce, when this show is in his comments are not as comments about Leonard aren't different than a lot of former Spurs made about choline LA, correct? But, but this is a different situation. I know that the clippers are being criticized from the high heavens on this. But if I was whoever pushes buttons over there, who would that be? Who would have fired Bruce Bowen? Would it have been Steve bomber himself? If I was Steve bomber, if I was Jerry West, if I was Lawrence Frank, thank you for playing. You're out. Without any hesitation whatsoever. He's I heard five or six people kill the clippers yesterday. Let's put it this way. You know there was this kind of silent drumbeat in then it became not silent when the word was out that the Lakers are trying to sign the Braun. Yes, and there'd be like Ben Ben lines, Jim move, don't sign the Brian. What does make sense? I want to see the kids and you know, I was on the everyday with you and we were saying, LeBron look at his numbers, he's the best player in the league player. The LeBron it is the number one signing of the off season by any team in any sport, higher it it it is. It is a day of huge celebration if the Lakers find a way to get LeBron. No, you and I were in that camp from day one. What if. Michael or stew, or Billy Mack, or I adopted the opposite approach. We don't want LeBron yet. What do we would him for? He's any good Bubba.
