"Seven years over one hundred fifty million. He hasn't played since two thousand seventeen if he played he would be overpaid. He doesn't play the Yankees, by the way, everybody with the Yankees is hurt. And the problem is ellsbury is always hurt. Two years left on his contract hasn't had a year. In it that he's played up to it signed before the start at twenty fourteen. And you know, it was interesting because he was he's a smaller player. He's outfielder Goodspeed can get on base. But when you're injured, and you're the strength. Your game is your legs. This has been you know, it's funny about this. It was a bad contract. When you signed it. Everybody said when you signed it as heard a lot. I mean even Yankee bench will like it's not a great contract. And it's funny when you look back at these deals almost all of them, you can argue that was a bad deal. I I will tell you one of the reasons I put Kirk cousin tenth, and I don't like it's contract. But the Vikings didn't wanna pay case keenum of fortune and felt that cousins was a bigger stronger version of kind of a C, plus B, minus case keenum. So I'll give the Vikings credit in their division with Aaron Rodgers. And Matt Stafford you gotta have a quarterback and Kurt was on the market. There wasn't one of the draft. They could get. So that's why not Kirkstall Nathan by way. When it was if you gave him four. Million more lessee year. I'd be okay with it because any would be the twelfth highest paid quarterback, and I would be okay with the market dictates at that point. And he's a quarterback and minutes and Minnesota frankly had a bunch of good defensive players. They're like we can't just wait to draft and develop a college guy. We're good enough to win or division. Now. So Minnesota I give a little bit of a pass to they were trapped. Your only got about two college quarterbacks ear that can play. And they had a lot of these good defensive players. They weren't gonna sit around and develop a quarterback for three years. So that's why kirks contract gets bashed a lot. It's not a good contract, by NFL standards. Trent Brown of the raiders that is an albatross. You can't pay in other top eight ten left tackle in the sport. And he's the highest payed left offensive lineman in NFL history. A.

"Nine seven with Kirk cousins three years eighty four million. There's a no trade provisions contract. If you cut him you'd still owe him sixty million you'd have sixty million dead money. I think Kirk cousins is a solid quarterback. I do not think he's the top five quarterback. That's where he's paid or a top ten quarterback. I'm not sure he's a top fifth. Eighteen quarterback. He has never been a great big prime time game quarterback. I don't think he's terrible. I think he's a spot starter. I think he's a great backup or or a guy that you give a couple year deal too. But this is a bad contract. Number nine. Chris Davis of the Orioles seven years one hundred sixty one million guaranteed first year of the deal a couple years ago. He's batting two hundred since the contract. He just went over fifty four. You know? It's funny. Chris was a really good player. And I when he signed that I thought that's a long contract. But it's almost like he's been affected negatively by the contract. Sometimes you get these guys that are power hitters, and you give them big money and it gets into their head, but he assigned through twenty twenty two and as of right now, it's an albatross number eight Trent Brown highest paid offense of in NFL history. I'm not sure he's the raiders best offensive lineman. He is certainly not the best tackle. In his own division. Thirty-seven million guaranteed. Four year sixty six million seven round draft pick heaviest player in the NFL. Currently last year. They started him and it worked for New England..

"I am America's media. I kinda very good point. But I now have a friend in major league baseball. I'm gonna go see him this weekend. Meet his parents, I now resent Cole Tucker. He's an incredible story. And by the way, he looked so young. He you just you look at them. And you're like, I've you're parent. He looks like a kid should look in the major leagues goes out. Fang homerun great story coming up in fifteen minutes Dangelo hall stops by we'll talk some draft stories in. He's got some good ones. And coming up earlier. I said Russell Westbrook's contract is one of the ten worst. We're going to go back and look right now at some of the really bad contracts in sports, they can completely hamstring and organization. All right. Well, the thunder I was wrong about this series are going to get knocked out in the first round third year in a row yet again. And you think I'm picking on Russell Westbrook. What are the advantages? I have doing the show over you as your fans your emotional. I try not to be and the story with Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Had a lot of emotion. Kevin durant? Bailed on him on a small market to go. Join a growing dynasty, and nobody liked D. We don't like that. And everybody's rooting for Westbrook. The little guy who got dumped in Oklahoma City, and we were rooting for Westbrook. And once you bring a motion into a sports argument, you're dead. I win and I won here. But my is not about winning. It's about trying to tell you something that you'd never thought about before. So let me start with this Westbrook's never been built for the postseason. There's three reasons why a playoff basketball's all about adapting. It's a chess match. It's the same opponent five times six times seven times. He doesn't Westbrook doesn't adapt. He's a human tornado. He's got one speed. He's a sprinter the playoffs for about a marathon moving this piece getting this p that's not Westbrook's game. That's the opposite of Westbrook's game. He's not adaptable. One speed a hundred miles an hour. He's not built for the playoffs. Very Derrick rose. Like second thing is playoff basketball is about coaching Gregg Popovich Brad Stevens. This is why I picked coaches as much as teams in the playoffs. Well, Westbrook's very very difficult to coach he's inflexible his personalities inflexible. His game is inflexible. He's a my way or a highway guy think even Westbrook fans would acknowledge he's kind of rigid. And number three is he's volatile. You do not want volatility playoff basketball is all about crisis. How do you handle crisis? Westbrook's arguing with fans. Children media coaches rivals the three things that matter in playoff basketball. And this is why I sold my stock on Westbrook three years ago. The playoffs are about adapting. He doesn't there about coaching. He's hard to coach. And there are about handling crisis with com. He's the opposite. He's completely volatile. Which is the last thing you want in playoff basketball. He's not built for this time of the year. But you were rooting for him because he's the little guy, and he got dumped by K D And Katie joined a dynasty, and that stinks in you like the little guy in the underdog. And so you were a motion -ly all in on Westbrook. And it clouded your judgment. I was never a hater on this. It was right in front of you look at a data. Look at the numbers. He's the three things. I don't want candidate can't coach him in volatile. And by the way, Charles Barkley pointed something out yesterday after the broadcast, and this is the exact same thing..

"Folks, Twitter's a loaded gun be very careful with it. I have twice in my career said no to hiring somebody because I went to their Twitter account. Jay Glazer reporting. What we've been warning you about that ain't your friend. It's a loaded gun and be very careful using it. It can do far more harm than it can good that your career where Colin was raw how the Utah Jazz haven't even been competitive. I said before the playoffs. I thought. I know don't have enough great shooters to win the title. But I think maybe the fifth fifth best team in the playoffs for Golden State, Houston, maybe Philly Milwaukee Boston. I mean, they've been blasted twice. They got a huge break. The other day. James harden went over fifteen in Utah. And they still won there. Now struggling to hit free throws. Listen, they've always been a flawed basketball team. Donovan Mitchell, the great kid and a great young player. Joe Ingles can hit a three four. They just don't have enough shooters. Ricky Rubio can't shoot they just simply do not have enough shooters. But this series has not really been remotely competitive, and my guests here Houston wins it in a sweep it actually shocks me. Where Colin was right. I've been saying the last couple of weeks, we got to admit it now that Kevin Durant. The best basketball player in the world. He had thirty three points yesterday in his last two games. He's had thirty eight and thirty three shooting almost sixty percent. He said ninety three percent on free throws to me. He I don't even know why there's pushback, I think he's now become easily. The player in the world, you'd want with a minute laughed and on the defensive end if it was him or LeBron with a minute left in the game. I think he's the better defensive player. I think he's the great shotmaker in the NBA for the last several years. He's an automatic too. And he's a very high three ninety percent from the free throw line. Remember what he said last week? I loved it. I'm not going to get in the way the game. Because you know, I wanna have a little. Back in full capacity penalty. I'm Kevin Durant. That's funny. And finally where Colin was right here is on cardinals released a two thousand nineteen hype video last Thursday joy. And I noted that that sixteen quarterbacks video except Josh Rosen. Forty three minutes later, the cardinals after listening to our show clearly edited the video and now Josh Rosen was sprinkled in there hype video well, they release the second video with their away games and it conveniently had splashes of Josh Rosen in there. So we're going to disassociate that they updated it before they both today. Yeah. Arizona's could you could you put your arms just around? Josh rosen. A little I just don't know. Why would hurt them in there and make this end? Could you give the kid how about give him a free spa treatment for the weekend? Could you just love just just love? Josh rosen. Give them a hug once in the past three months. A little of can't even put up with. I video. Coming up next.

"But I'll take a wrong. Russell Wilson did sign a contract last week long term very expensive to stay with the Seahawks. I told you a month ago I had heard that he was willing to leave his wife CRN him like the idea of New York for her career. And then he made up kind of a make believe deadline in the Seahawks. Folded because my belief is because they knew he was not bluffing. But since he signed I'll take a wrong, I think Seattle made the right move. I do worry about Seattle going forward because unlike Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers contract, I think. There's a lot of really really good young Packer players going forward. I don't know of Seattle. They don't have a lot of draft capital. I do not know if they're well position going forward. But you have to pay Russell Wilson. He is one of the best quarterbacks in the league next. Steve young. He may be the most undervalued great quarterback in my lifetime. I'll take a wrong on that. Where Colin was right. I said John gruden's TV analysts in the last decade. I'm not sure he's a head coach and the dysfunction with the raiders continues. Its Barnum and Bailey. So a story last Friday the raiders in Gruden sent their scouts home pre draft, reportedly he doesn't trust them. But my question is how does a story like this leak. I mean that shows me the dysfunction now that story should not leak that gruden's having trust issues, I talked to an NFL coach over the weekend. That told me the Trent Brown left tackle contract is one of the biggest I rolls in the NFL. They're paying double what he's worth. I feel the raiders are making things up as they go. If they draft Cuyler Murray all bets are off. Then it's officially put the tent on this team and play the clown music. But the dysfunction is listen, you cannot be out of any business like the NFL baseball. Maybe but football changes like annually. You can't be out of business like this or tech for ten years. The raiders look like they're kind of a circus where Colin was raw I kind of bought into the rumors eight weeks ago that kinda Maria was going to go number one. I mean, he fits cliff teams berry. They're all lines bad. He's a run around quarterback but stories this weekend by CBS's, Pete Persico, say the ownership pushed for initially. They're having trouble selling tickets, and they thought that they put his name out there. They could sell some tickets, but I'm told said Prisco they're going in a different direction. They're not going to draft Cuyler Murray. Listen I bought into it. I manage listen. If you're asking me what I would do. I'd stay with Josh Rosen, but you can make an argument, and I kind of bought into it that the offense headline so bad in a division. We're going to have to score points. Kind of American ad-lib is way out of the protection issues and Kingsbury. You gotta give the franchise to him. Because if he doesn't work everybody gets fired, but Pete friscos saying, they're not moving where Colin was right. Jay Glazer reporting. Something we have been banging on Twitter is not your friend, athletes and media members. According to Jay Glazer in the athlete. I was in a general manager's office couple years ago. And he said Jay, you gotta see this. This kid said the dumbest stuff you could ever imagine on social media. I'm not going to repeat the language was using. But they were all laughing saying, well, this blankety blanks off our board Glazer is noting. Now that NFL teams are hiring firms to rake over social media, and they're moving players off their board and down there board based on social media point posts..

Portland wins Game 1 against the Thunder 104-99

"Okay, CNN Portland Portland wins this game one zero four to ninety nine. And when you look at this game you look at Paul George eight of twenty four four fifteen from three. And remember Paul George is somebody that was dealing with a shoulder injury for the majority of the season or the majority of the second half of the season and cities come back from that shoulder injury. He has not been the same player. But this is going to be a serious problem for okay? See if Paul George is going four fifteen from three point zero, Tori. This has been your best player all season long. You need Paul George to show up in these critical moments. And if you look at okay, see, it's more of the same for Russell Westbrook. Billy Donovan, Nepal, George in the postseason ever since Kevin Durant left. Russell Westbrook has been able to win in the postseason. We saw last year they lost to jazz team that they had more talent than right? They lost. Series four to one. And now you look at it. Maybe this is just one of those teams that puts up good regular season numbers puts the regular season record. And then they get to the postseason and they don't come through because for years. Everybody had bought into Russell Westbrook being the beloved superstar because Russell Westbrook was the guy that stayed and Kevin Durant was the guy that left, but Russell Westbrook at some points to start back in this stuff up because in the postseason loses in the first round two years ago. And I get that year. He didn't have any other running mate. But last year they lose to jazz. Now if that happens again now, you have serious trouble. If you're okay see because this is your team going forward. This is the team that the thunder will be this is the team. You sunk all the money into Westbrook all the money into Paul George you paid Stephen Adams at ton of money. Like, you can't go out in the open market like max free agent. You this is your team. These are the guys that you're rolling with long-term. So if this gets ugly for okay, see, it's going to be Billy of it. Right. Because we know Sam Prestia loves Billy Donovan. But if you lose again for the. Third consecutive year in the first round when you have a former MVP and Russell Westbrook. Paul George who was in the MVP conversation this year, he'll probably finished in the top five. He was in the conversation for the defensive player of the year. If this team loses in the first round to the Portland trailblazers or what's going to happen? Those guys are gonna look at a coach and the coach is going to be the one that gets fired. It's not going to be something with the players. You're not gonna trade Paul George. You're not gonna trade. Russell westbrook. It's going to be the coaches eventually gonna lose his job. I was surprised to see them go down to a Portland team. Which by the way is playing with its second. Best player all season long. Not out. There Yousef nourish was better than CJ McCollum this year and use of nourishes implying, and then you have a guy in cancer on Portland who was bought out by the next. They say, yeah, we don't watch any more. You couldn't trade cancer. Nobody wanted him. He's on the blazers a guy that the thunder got rid of because they didn't think he could play. Okay. Cancer is somebody that during playoff series a couple of years ago against the warriors when Kevin Durant was still there. And it was Russell Westbrook Durant. And they blew that three one lead against the warriors. Billy Donovan literally mouth can't play cancer. He was saying I can't play Kanter. And Kanter for Portland goes out there any beats okay, see going for. Twenty points and eighteen rebounds out their center, Stephen Adams who has seventeen points and six rebounds in that game. So you thought coming into this series, the glaring issue for Portland, they don't have their set or anymore and cancer is a horrible defender. And Kanter is going to be exposed, right? You've thought that clearly okay. See has a big advantage because Portland is without its second best player. And Kanter is now they're starting center who you didn't want your because you noticed he couldn't play in a postseason series in the past when he was with you. And this guy exposes you in game one of the series. Unbelievable. The way that this changed for okay? See now down a one you look at these teams. How many teams are facing as much pressure as we know the pressure. The warriors face they have to winner. It's an epic failure. Right. Philadelphia's in a similar situation with their coach long-term but outside of Philadelphia. You look at the teams that have the pressure on them. Okay. Sees right up there in terms of the top of the food chain. Because at what point is Russell Westbrook gonna do. Do something without Kevin Durant. That's my question at what point is Russell Westbrook actually gonna have success in the postseason without Kevin Durant. The first year, you can say, okay mulligan, because he didn't have any with buddy with them last year at Paul George. This year has Paul George if you don't get out in the first round of the playoffs against an undermanned team a team that is without its second. Best player that is a major issue for us a Westbrook, and that's a major negative on his legacy. If you will. And I hated the way that Russell Westbrook acted after this game. Did you see Russel Westbrook with the media? And I'm not saying you have to be the nicest guy in the world to the media. But after the game, you're up there doing a press conference, and you're acting like a child Russell Westbrook. Every time somebody asked him a question. He just said next question didn't answer any of the questions just sitting there next question next question next question like come on, man. Grow up like Russell Westbrook. Grow up at some point. You have to face the music when you underperform it's not the media's fault when you perform poorly in the postseason.
