Probably if mobile goes to the Astros and Kate Cunningham to the Detroit Pistons. The Washington Wizards fans among them long suffering Fred Barnes week gently in the corner as yet another dream is dashed. Hello, Fred. How are you? I'm fine. I'm still basking in the fact that the the Wizards made the playoffs this year didn't see the Cleveland anybody from Cleveland there, But there they were. They were the Wizards. They've got a long ways to go. But They had a great comeback this year. I'm look, I'm look, I'm going to be at every game this coming year. Well, you know, someday you're going to invite me when Sexton young ball And could Darius Garland come along and now jail and green because we are the new dynasty. You just You heard it here, Fred. Fred, I I want to talk to you about the Republican Party getting organized on the issues. The Republican study Committee held a conference last week. On the big issues on which the party needs a consensus position, and they identified Jim Banks is their chair. Very smart young congressman from Indiana, Immigration China and Big Tech I think there's a consensus on immigration in China. What do you think is or can there even be a consensus on big tech? I I think there cannot be an agreement all big tech and for a number of reasons, but But one reason is that Most Americans. At least I think most Americans are not all whipped up about Big tech. And I mean, are they all mad at Facebook and all these other things? I don't think they are. I don't think there is that. It's an issue that Republicans can one agree on it, too, because there is the Uh, a lot. It's not going to help them. It's not going to get votes now. These other ones, they can do it. But not on that one. I think big tech is something that Most Americans are not bad about Now within the room. There was a division between people who are upset about using in. I trust to go after simply big companies like Amazon, Google and Facebook. And then there were people like me who don't care about how large a company is. But I don't like the looting of personal data. I do not like to be nudged by people who are taking my data without paying for it, using terms and conditions that are unreadable and using that data to manipulate me. So I argued that privacy And the production of personal property. Your data is where the Republicans ought to put the stake in the ground on Big tech. What do you think, Fred? Well, I agree with you, but Republicans haven't come together on all is yet I mean it. Look, I think they need to pay attention to the issues that are right in front of them, and they're ready to use Immigration is certainly a big one. Well, the big tax increases come from by the Democrats and and look right now, at this whole voting issue, the whole my god, that thing now Democrats. Uh, I want to have the federal government takeover. How voting is that in the United States. I think that the constitutional among other things, because also incredibly unpopular. Yeah, Republicans, really. Making an issue about the only thing is, is whether voters have to show some kind of identification to be eligible to vote actually vote on some people. That has sometime within the year of Election Day. Yeah, and Democrats are against that that Democrats.

"wizards" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show

"Don't want it. You don't need it but you're gonna get it anyway. The kevin sheehan show he. Is kevin times here today. I'm here Hope everybody had a great weekend. We both have watched the finale of the show. We've been talking about it for the last seven weeks. Maher town we will get to that we will get to the neaten the naomi osaka story From the french open. But i think we should start with the wizards who stayed alive last night. Beating the seventy sixers one twenty two to one fourteen In a game that to me. It's pretty simple. I mean if embiid plays in the game more than eleven minutes. The wizard season is over. I mean it's really. It isn't more much more than that. This is the easiest recap of a game of all time now. There are other things in the game. That i want to talk about But the bottom line is joel. Embiid got hurt. He's having an mri on his knee. Today eleven minutes. When he was in the game they were up by as many as ten he got two fouls called on gathered. Who started the game two fouls on len who came in foregathered and then he left the game. In the wizards Came back and even they trailed at half time. They took a fourteen point. Third quarter lead in held on for dear life against primarily. Seventy sixers backups. Because ben simmons was in foul trouble for much of the game If you watch the game on saturday night it was an embarrassment. I mean it was one of the worst. You know efforts. I've seen the one thing that i liked about last night. Even with him. Beat in the game. Tommy is that they actually came out and played with the level of urgency like they had interest in winning the game in extending their season but if embiid plays and place his normal minutes. The wizards are over there. Season's over that's the way i saw it. How did you see it. I agree with you. I agree with you totally and you know. Let's face it. Their number eight. See now who who managed to squeeze their way into being the seed and they're playing a number one seed so i don't know how are we could expect a. I mean much more than than what we've seen. This is the way the nba works. I mean the the the top teams the difference between the top teams. And the also ryan's is significant. But you're right i mean. The wizards are taken golf states. If embi played up there. And i know because he didn't play daniel gaffer even look more impressive when he played. But my my. My takeaway was the wizards better. Not screw up gifford and more better not either the development of those guys up because he gaffer. They've really got something they make they got a bargain in gaffer and he's got potentially be a real significant contributor to a good team And with hotter more and i just hope that you know as the organization does they. Don't screw this up. yeah they. I think they For next year And maybe even the following year have like gay team option on his rookie deal That chicago signed him to when they drafted him. I thought i'm not even talking about that. Talk about about how. Well he got it. You know. he's got to stay here for you know a meaningful amount of time So mean. I think effort has been phenomenal I thought hot schumer had his best game as a wizard because playoff game. And i really do like hot summer now so much more than i used to. I'm bought into hot summer. A being a potential future star not guaranteed star. But a player. Who has a chance to be. You know a eight hundred number two legitimate all star on a team something like that and you know if you think about beal westbrook and hotch chamara if he were to emerge quickly as as a star and a third star in the team. What would that mean. well it would mean Not a championship. It would mean forty five to forty eight wins year. Maybe a five seed in may be one series one. That's the upside with this team. No matter what hot shimmer becomes an. I'm more intrigued with what he can become now than. I was say a month or two months ago. the They're just not anywhere near the upper echelons of the eastern conference the stars on the teams in the eastern conference from the three that play in brooklyn in kyrie irving and kevin durant and james harden to even to be honest with you. The two that play in philadelphia. Certainly no one of the three matches embiid. Embiid is a true heavyweight star. The wizards don't have you know like we've talked about a top ten player You know milwaukee has won Held the hawks may have one when all is said and done. The celtics have won Anyway the game last night was interesting because first of all did you watch it. I mean were you watching it on. Tnt up because you're up in the poconos right now. But i watched it. The crowd was great now. I know there were a lot of philly fans in the crowd. I was told that by people who were at the game but the crowd was. You could tell that Through the tv watching it. I was shocked at the noise. That philly fans saturday night was even louder because they played so well but anyway. I thought the urgency was there at the fans were great Even if it was sort of a mixed track there were more wizards fans there than than seventy sixers fans. I don't think there's any doubt about that. But whatever Whatever the percentage breakdown there are a lot of philly fans there I thought hot shimura was awesome. I thought their intensity was awesome. But here's just an observation about this series you know neither westbrook or beal have played a great game yet. Bill is not played. well I you know he had a couple of big shots down the stretch at seven turnovers in the game last night and it could have been ten turnovers Last night westbrook was three for nineteen from the floor. They were combined twelve for forty two and for this series. I think bill is something like five for twenty five on threes. He was three for twenty coming into the game last night. They got lucky. And maybe they'll continue to get lucky in this series. This is a big injury report coming up this afternoon. Bee's tommy it's not nuts to say it isn't that if joel embiid somehow got seriously injured last night in his out for the series that the wizards would have a legitimate chance of winning any game that he doesn't plan now. Are they gonna win three more. Which is what they'd have to do to complete the time. Nba comeback. Nobody's ever come back from three nothing down. I doubt it. I think philly would be able to summon up enough there deeper in their bench To win one of these games but we would go into tomorrow. Night's game as example as an example in philadelphia. If joel embiid is out and the sixers be like a very short favourite. These would be toss up games going into it and the one encouraging thing again is that i don't even think bill has played a great game yet in this series. Now i'm not expecting embiid to be out I'm not expecting embiid. Be completely compromised like healthwise for the rest of the series. But i don't know And if he were to be out for or or not be anywhere near one hundred percent believe it or not. The wizards could win any game against them. Whereas before last night i bet philly last night laying eight and a half. I bought it down to eight. I thought they were going to destroy the wizards last night. I thought saturday night. We saw a team that was basically had quit. They got embarrassed on saturday night. The defense was horrible It looked like they were still more concerned about the popcorn incident and they were winning anything And last night at the beginning of the game. I think it was like eighteen eight early something like that and i thought yeah this is not going to go well and this is going to be another blow. I think they led by ten at one point in the first quarter maybe twelve and then embiid got hurt in the whole game changed around. I mean that's not a coincidence. He's that good that good. By the way. Tommy i had Tony massenburg on the radio. This morning and i've had scott brooks on a bunch and it wiped talked to both of them about embiid in gino. Both of them. How about this scott brooks played with akeem allies one in houston you know in the mid nineties on one of those championship. Teams tony massenburg in one of his seventeen. Nba stops. He played with akeem lajon. And when i brought it up. He said he said this when he goes. I definitely see. If that's where you're going. I definitely see the comparison in embiid's game to allies you on there. A lot of comparisons minus three point shooting..

"Hi i'm jay. Addison and milestone six and you're listening to hawk talk where we talk hawks now. Normally this would be jan miles. Explain the and walked through the And time travel comics greatest superhero soap opera but once every four weeks we take a week off from our exhaustively researched and produced podcast. And just kind of talk about stuff. Hawks really mainly just hawks. We should note. going in. This episode is not edited. it is entirely off the cuff. It is entirely unplanned so if it is your first episode we do not recommend it as something that will get you a general sense of what we do. Yeah we're normally way better than this. I mean i guess it sort of depends on what you're looking for if you're looking for just a couple of guys rambling nerdy on the internet than well. A you have about thirty five thousand options and be a we gotcha with this episode. Well once every four weeks we got you otherwise. We're pretty careful. Yeah yeah otherwise. We met hunter using his incredible skills and magics. But speaking of magic's that's right. What are this week's hawks else. This week's hawks are goddamn wizards is what. They are j. Credit to you for for choosing wizards as a topic. I do both enjoy. 'em challenged by how as we keep doing hawk talk for way longer than we initially intended. Our topics are just getting more. And more like eric. I liked the week. We did vegetables that went surprisingly well. Yeah but anyway. This week we're talking about Could be still vegetable wizards. I don't know. I haven't seen veggietales but if it goes old testament then In the tora there are definitely some rabbis. Who were effectively wizards. So wouldn't they be clerics if we're going by d. and d. class. Maybe we should start by defining wizards for our purposes. Oh boy okay. So wizards man and listeners. We should emphasize that. This is not any kind of area of expertise of either of us. We should also say off the cuff or the top top thing thing now we say words that we are not going to be discussing harry potter. 'cause fuck jk rowling yeah. Yeah that that whole situation makes me sad but But lots of other wizards around in the world don't shit themselves at random. Oh god yeah. Yeah i mean even before rowling went all turf. There was the whole wizard shitting on the floor thing listeners. I would say look it up but honestly like don't it's not worth it. It's word of god. Cannon is what it is hobo. Well anyway that aside. Okay so wizards. Magic users spell casters often with staves and robes and sometimes beard but not necessarily by any means hats. You can't forget that hats are important not required but important. I mean okay. So let's be real. You and i are both among other things or at least especially used to be when we were younger. Fantasy nerds like sword and sorcery nerd. So i feel like. I can certainly speak for myself and say mike. Conception of wizards comes from all of that. Dnd slash tolkien related stuff. Mine comes from all of that but has been significantly if gently shifted by discworld. Okay yeah yeah ratchet. His take on wizards is great. Discworld knowledge is more limited than yours. I know yeah. I mean for me. There's a lot about wizardry. In in discworld that i really enjoy because of the details of it But the the biggest principle of of of wizardry in discworld is. I think one that that tends to work across the designer. Wizard see things as they are. Okay is unclouded or whatever to cut to the core of the matter. I mean is unclouded by reality. Not so much is unclouded by things like liquor and hubris. I feel like hubris is not a required component for wizardry. But certainly a recommended one so all the things we've discussed so far are things that could apply to sourcres. Tour could apply to any any number of magic users and for me i guess a fundamental aspect of wizardry is study. Yeah and i mean if you're going with dnd especially when resources created was that third edition sometime sources as we know them sounds about right. Yeah that was. The distinction like wizards prepare their spells. They have spell books. They're great big nerds and sorcerers. Just have like inherent magic whether it's because they have the blood of dragons or third chaos touched or or whatever dracula oh man. No a vampire wizards those are the premier. I believe as i recall yes. Correct enrolled of dark. yes so Yeah i agree. I feel like The whole with studying wizards are almost inherently academics or at least historians or at least very interested in in knowledge as a pursuit so I mean okay. Let's let's go back to the start of. I would say wizards most of us know them. I mean we we got to give it up for tolkien. Gandalf is sort of the type of. I would say most modern fantasy wizards but but gant his. No merlin. is the archetype a true. But i feel like in terms of mainstream depiction slyke gandalf just was so vividly realized i mean merlin somewhat but like a lot of those aesthetics as i recall come from the sort of the stone right. I'm not sure i'm not entirely. I'm familiar with the original texts. And i'm familiar with with with some some novel adaptations of arthur. Not so much with with the the screen. Ones i just. I just wanna see the character sheet from lamar. Dr tour. Yeah mallory was was was kind of a min. Max ser probably into vacco. Jeez but again. I'll play john prison. Oh that's right. It's a crime. We're not experts listeners. Were talking out of our wizard plazas but the thing with with lord of the rings so gandalf is not a human who studied a bunch. Gandalf is like a different species of creature. All the wizards are there. Like these long lived demi-god essentially select lizards Like lizards their lizard wizards. Isn't there a band like something gizzard lizard wizard. I don't remember. I don't i don't know there's wizard attack. Ben called the lounge lizards. And that's about as far as i can get on that. Sorry there's a band called white wizzard. And i really really liked them. But then i listened to their lyrics and they got a little iffy sometimes so i stopped listening to them but Anyway yeah so. I don't know i mean i don't think that makes gandalf less wizardy in that regard because he's still very much is an academic and historian he's all about knowing things and learning things and managing information and data and knowledge. He's got the beard. You've got the hat And then the hobbit movies you get some more wizards you get the seventh doctor with birgit on his head. That was that was weird. That was the thing it was a thing. i've only ever seen the of our friends cut of the hobbit movies where he took them in re cut them so that they follow the book. I've seen about a third of the hobbit movies in total but different pieces of each one. You know there is some very good dwarf stuff in those movies. There is a lot of good Good beard ary and beard ornamentation. And that was my favorite part. So i feel like that's that's an important tangent because we've we've mentioned beards a few times with regards to wizard. I think of beards is a fundamentally wizardly thing. But by the same token i would say male wizards are vastly vastly overrepresented in fantasy or at least are nominally so because it occurred to me as we were talking that maybe maybe wizards or like discworld with a huge beards. Maybe i should run a disclaimer. About how like you know gender and beard having nece don't necessarily lineup. But i think certainly in much fantasy literature they have well. They don't entirely in the real population but statistically the ability to grow a beard on that magnitude is more likely to anyway.

Naked Mole Rats: The Key to Slowing Human Aging?

"Rodents only live a few years. Maybe six at the most for some of the common ones. That's comparative biologist. Russia buffet stein was stunned in the late nineties. When the naked mole rats that she'd been studying just wouldn't die. She was working with some that. Were more than fifteen years old and one naked mole rat who she first met while doing doctoral work in the eighties. A pink and wrinkly dude named joe. He is now thirty nine years old and officially the oldest living naked mole rat on record. He's barely aged at all in nearly four decades and there is every expectation that he'll make it to the big four. Oh thanks to the work of buffon's stein and increasing number of scientists studying naked mole rats and various capacities. We now know that the creatures have an astonishing lifespan of around thirty years. Joe is an anomaly of the anomalies. Of course anyone who's read. Harry potter knows what's going on here. Joe is clearly a shape shifting wizard who faked his own death after joining a colton murdering his best friend. so he's been hiding out as a naked mole rat for the past few decades. I'm onto you joe. But magical explanations aside naked mole rats. It turns out are fascinating. In addition to living exceptionally long. Lives for rodents naked mole. Rats unlike other mammals aren't susceptible to many diseases like arthritis cancer and alzheimer's they can also withstand long periods without oxygen and are impervious to pain from acid. There is so much about naked mole. Rats that is absolutely wild and researchers still trying to figure out the reason for a lot of it but we're starting to get more information because a lot more players have entered the ring in recent years due to the naked mole rats relative lack of aging and low occurrence of age associated disease. They've become a hot subject of study for cancer. Researchers and anyone interested in

"The freedom and has the space in transition to drive to force defense to collapse to throw a pass that ends up. Being the hockey assist somebody else That goes to baton trailing in spotting up for a wide open three. I think beal benefits from that significantly An obviously in transition the bigs that run the floor well gifford being the main guy really benefit from that bottom line is they won this game because the pace is a pace. That they thrive in with r- with westbrook being the ringleader of that when the game slows down it's a problem for this team period. It slowed down the other day against the celtics. And i think it's going to slow down a lot against the seventy sixers. I personally don't think they have any chance in hell of winning a best of seven against philadelphia. I think it's a five game series. I think they can win. A game But i think joel embiid is too good. They've got a shooters Simmons is a beast I'll be very interested to see how they play. Joel embiid the only hope they have. Is that philadelphia. Is you know healthy. And that embiid and other players are a little bit banged up in not one hundred percent and somehow they a lot of shots which starts transition. But they're well coached. They're going to be back on defense. They're going to force the wizards against a set defense to try to execute. And i just don't think that i see that happening. You know i added this up on the show the Earlier this morning the wizards Have not scored under a hundred points in a game since april april third since april fifth over a stretch of. I think it's twenty three games including the last two. They have had one hundred or more points and they've averaged one hundred twenty two a game tops in the league. You know even their losses one hundred and forty three points one hundred thirty four points one hundred twenty four hundred like even in their losses. They're scoring well over one hundred twenty. I would predict right now that there are at least two games in the upcoming series were they. Don't score one hundred points. Philadelphia is excellent defensively and they are excellent perimeter wise defensively so i think that could be problematic especially affiliate shoots the ball well and there aren't transition opportunities. But i think even off of mrs. You're going to see a lot of forcing against the defense that gets back not like last night. Not like two nights ago. Our tuesday night And turnovers will be huge for the wizards. They can't turn it over trying to force pace although they should be trying to force pace And westbrook's decision. Making will be huge in unless they're able to turn them over and get miss shots and get out and get shots up at the rim or from behind the arc In seven or eight seconds or less in transition. I see four one. I see a couple of games. That are really anemic offensively from a team. That's been explosive offensively but with all that said they're going to go ahead and play came anyway and i'm excited that they're here. You know the last thing about them right now is what does this mean big picture. They made the playoffs after being fifteen games below five hundred. It's really a terrific story. You've got to give everybody credit westbrook. Being healthy was huge But what does it mean. I don't know what it means. I think that scott brooks is russell. Westbrook's i and i don't know if ted and tommy are going to defer to russell westbrook on scott brooks. Does he have to have a competitive series to keep his job. Did he already earn it by just getting to the playoffs or did they wanna see a lot more this year. And does tommy sheppard first time. Fulltime general manager. Does he have somebody in mind. Cause scott was not his choice For now let's enjoy the fact that you get another week and a half of hoops and a team that will be really interesting to watch This time of year has not been Real favorable or flattering of russell. Westbrook's play in recent years. He's got beal got to be healthy. He's got an interesting center and gathered. he's got a very Interesting and improving power forward and hot shimmer and another couple of pieces out there I don't see it over philadelphia. Not that i would have seen it over brooklyn I think milwaukee would have been the better opportunity because their team. It's gonna play high level of pace in possessions And that would have been interesting to watch But congrats to them forgetting in. You know some of you probably didn't want to happen. I know some of you hardcore wizards fans which i am were would have preferred an obvious down season to move on from scott brooks and this is gonna make maybe the decision a bit more difficult. Maybe it will I'm just gonna look forward to watching these games. I think there will be five of them. It would be great if there were six or seven of them All right up. Next phil chenier will be our guest and then i will explain to you afterwards who miss. Bj is and a thought on why. Morgan moses was released yesterday instead of the possibility that existed that they would wait until there was a trade offer for them. All of that coming up after this word from one of our sponsors magic spoons got a new flavor. More on that coming up in a moment most of you know that. I love the product. I think magic spoons really good. I'm a big cereal eater even as an adult But i've been trying to eat better in so cereal without all the bad stuff especially when the flavors good as magic spoons. It's totally worth it..

"They don't want it. You don't need it but you're gonna get it anyway. The kevin sheehan show is phil. Chenier is going to be a guest on the podcast today. We'll ask phil and get his thoughts about the wizards win last night. And see what he thinks about the match up in an eight one. First round series against philadelphia which starts on sunday. I'm going to tell everybody who miss. Bj was A lot of you of asked me who the hell is miss. Bj in wise everybody talking about her I will explain on the show today and we'll also Address why morgan moses scott released yesterday. Why didn't they wait. Why didn't they wait until training camp. Why didn't they wait until somebody made an offer. Why did they move on from him so quickly. It's not like he was a huge cost right now. It's not like from a financial or a cap perspective. They needed to cut him yesterday. But we will address all of that on the show. Today i start with the wizards win last night over the pacers which to me. It's really simple They played the kind of pace that they thrive in. You know an uptempo game. A game with a limited participation defensively on either end. That's what the game was last night at times. It looked like a summer league game. They've played in a bunch of them over the last month month. And a half. that's where russell westbrook. That's where bradley beal even a compromise. Bradley beal he's not one hundred percent. That's where they thrive you know they've got a score one hundred twenty one hundred twenty five points and they've got to be in those kinds of games with a hundred and five one hundred seven possessions And they've got a chance. That's not what happened the other night against boston and the game slowed down a little bit. They didn't get anything in transition. And you saw russell westbrook really limited. You saw a team that runs a lot of i so in a lot of to men and against a team and a set defense doesn't work as much for them. They've got to play up pace higher tempo basketball if they do. They've got a chance to win and last night. They were playing a team without a good player and carousel avert And quite frankly a team that Really on most conscientious objectors to defense. Which the wizards are at times in the game looked like an urban coalition summer league game from way back in the seventies or eighties and the wizards they blew up in the third quarter. They'd forty eight points in a quarter and it could have been about fifty six. They missed a couple of easy shots in the third quarter but they had forty eight In the quarter ended up scoring seventy six in the second half and it might have been ninety six. Had it been a competitive game because they really basically rested everybody over the final five six minutes of the game and by the way that was a benefit of the game. Last night you know beal only played twenty eight minutes westwick played thirty three hot shimmer replied twenty five. You know you had a lot of guys in that fourth quarter. You know gil in winston and matthews in banga. They were all lynn giving The starters arrest. It was a complete and utter one-sided beat down it was the tempo they love to play. The pace was perfect And they shot fifty eight point one percent from the field fifty percent from behind the arc and they blew out the pacers one. Forty two to one fifteen a couple of things from this game first of all. I really thought that ryuhachi myrrha Played exceptionally well. If you haven't seen the one play where he is isolated at around the top of the key and there's a couple of dribbles and just inside the free throw line. He takes the ball with his long long arms in huge hands and he makes a move dr j. style which is what marv albert described and he finishes off the glass. It wasn't just that move. It's been hot chamara Just overall the last month you know he hasn't been healthy all the time But there is something very very exciting about his game you know. He's got the size. He's got the temperament he's got super long arms and huge hands. Which by the way is why there have been comparisons to leonard. I think why was a better long range shooter and a better mid range shooter. Then rui at this point hotch moore will guard not at the co i level but i can start to see now some of those comparisons when they drafted hot chamara. I actually wanted his teammate brandon. Clark i thought he would be the better selection. I actually liked tyler. Herro in that draft is well Before hot schumer. A but i have to admit that i'm getting more and more excited as a wizards fan about his potential. As a you know as maybe a guy that could turn in to an excellent you know kind of all star level player in eighteen points last night. Shot the three well In twenty five minutes And really is getting super confident. Offensively also by the way a guy that i actually think with more structure and a half court could be a really good player whereas i think westbrook struggles with that Two different players obviously But i thought hot myrrha played really. Well i also thought that the centers in the game you know len and obviously lopez and gathered if you just. We've we've talked about this. This is not the first time that they've essentially been like twelve of fourteen combined from the floor. That's what they were in this game. You know that they had combined Twenty three rebounds and combined. They had six blocked shots. Like that's a hell of a night. you know. Twelve fourteen from the floor. Twenty three rebounds and six blocks three centers totaling forty eight minutes and actually last night. It didn't even a total forty eight minutes because they didn't need anybody in there at the end of the game gaffer's performance was what we've seen you know. It was unbelievably productive in a short period of time last night in twenty two minutes. Fifteen points thirteen rebounds in twenty two minutes. We've seen these games before you know Against atlanta few weeks ago. Sixteen points in seventeen minutes. We had the game where he had twelve points. Ten rebounds in fourteen minutes at milwaukee. This was a one of the things we talked about. When they made the trade. I loved him as a prospect. Coming out of arkansas and was surprised eating it picked in the first round and then lost touch with sort of what his career was in chicago. And you could see wasn't getting much of an opportunity. But when he did. He was highly productive in limited minutes. I don't know the reason why he doesn't play. Twenty eight to thirty minutes and much more than the other. Two centers look round robin lopez. Rollo is their best low post option of the three centers. He's also the least capable as a defensive rim-protector whereas len is a little bit better and obviously gaffer is big time shot blocker big time shot blocker and the catch and dunk lob off the pick and roll is tailor made for gathered with the long arms with the ridiculous hops. The quick hops and we saw dunk show. And he's going to be a very high level you know. percentage shooter because most of them are lay ups and dunks. You know none of them are jump shots. None of them were jump. I mean an and lopez a high percentage shooter with that jump hooker half jump kathak shot whatever you wanna call it. Gifford since joining the wizards is shooting sixty eight percent from the floor. It's really amazing. The contribution he has had but the three headed center last night. Even though it didn't even total forty eight minutes outstanding. I thought netto for the first time in a few games was really comfortable. But he's another guy that excels with a lot of space on the floor especially in transition. Now we get to bertans batons is really taken a beating from a lot of the fans because of shooting performance The other night and certainly his defense bottom line with batons is. I'm glad he hit those final two shots and this will be something that i ask phil chenier. Protons is important to. This team is very important. And i understand the dollar. He got and i understand the production in the inconsistency but this team needs protons and he should never stop shooting. That is what he is. Therefore i don't care how many shots in a row. He is missed if he is on the floor. He is shoot the basketball. If he's open now. I thought the other night. He was terrible defensively and he was one for eight from the floor in ofer. What every was from behind the arc. Oh for seven. I think it was in boston. But all of those shots were contested. Bretons another guy that that really benefits from an uptempo game where westbrook has the freedom and has the space in transition to drive to force defense to collapse to throw a pass that ends up..

"Playing well together. I'll give you one reason. I think this team plays so effing fast tommy. Their pace of play is so up there that you don't have that number of possessions in games where you're in the half court and it's in a half court setting where then you have to say well whose turn is it. Or what are we going to do on this one. Are we gonna run a play for brad. Or we're gonna run a play for us. Or should i defer to you there other than end of game like against dallas the other night and they ran a play for bill a lot of fans. You thought they should've run for russ. I came in here on monday on the radio. Show and on the podcast yesterday. With doc i came in here yesterday and said i thought westbrook's game on saturday night in the loss against the mavericks was one of the best games. I've seen a wizards player. Play ever. He will them back on individually from eighteen down to come back to take the lead in. What was a phenomenal basketball game. Saturday night back and forth and then at the very end they turned it over to bill. He almost turned. It did turn it over but netto save. The day passed it back to him. And bill is not in has not been a great closer westbrook's better clutch player this year in the fourth quarter again. That's that speaks to to what i'm saying. I mean in terms of like. I don't know bradley beal personally. But from what i know of his interviews and his on court demeanor he's going to defer. It's not going to be a power struggle with bradley beal's teammate. I think. I don't know if i agree with you on that i by the way i'm not saying i agree with you about the power struggle thing but i think for whatever reason there's this ability between the both of them to not have their feelings hurt regardless of how it goes right now. It's easy for westbrook again. He's in his mind. He's the man there's no spotlight to share. Well he's also the facilitator much more than bradley beal is. Obviously i mean. Yeah i read this stat earlier. And i'm looking for it right now Here it is Since april seventh since they got on this role westbrook's assists are leading to thirty one point six points per game for washington that is the highest mark in the league. Luka doncic which ranks a distant second he creates twenty four point eight points per game via assists during that stretch russell. Westbrook's passes lead to thirty one point six points per game in this. He's must he makes them must watch. Now i agree with that. Look let me ask you this Steve buck hands. And it's painful. In the few times. I watched the wizards telecasts not to have buck making the calls. It's absolutely painful. But he tweeted out the wizards team. Nobody wants to see the play offs at easy to say. Is that real. No doubt really. Yeah if you're if you're philadelphia or your brooklyn and you're looking at the potential one eight two seven match-ups in a best to seven. That would be the team. You do not want to play the in part tommy because the options that you know charlotte indiana okay. Okay you know that those would be much better. Option is much easier. But the wizards people are going to talk about the wizards being a threat to make a competitive series out of a one eight or a two seven matchup. I say to seven because the wizards are only a game and a half behind charlotte for eighth place. If they get to eighth place they'll play in the seven versus eight game which is four the seven seed In the ninety nine seat a team plays the ten seed a team And by the way if you get to the eighth seed you. It's not single elimination for you. It's double elimination for you. It single elimination for the nine versus ten in this playing tournament. So they've got a good chance to get to the eighth seed and then to play either miami. It'd be atlanta miami or boston for the seven seat. If they were to lose that game they would have one more opportunity for the eight seed. And that's where they're headed right now given the way. They're they're playing. They're just better than indiana and better than charlotte the way. They're playing so an even better than boston right now. So wouldn't surprise me. If the wizards ended up in the seven spot in the east and they take on. You know it's going to be philly or or brooklyn. I think there's a half game difference at the top of the standings between them. I look i. I wanted to just mention one other things. So he's a force of nature. He may be playing the at thirty two years old. The best stretch of basketball of his career. Although i didn't go back and look at it and they're plenty of people in oklahoma city. I'm sure that would would be able to say she in go back and look at you know december tenth through you know march third of june twenty thirteen or whatever he had some just incredible years obviously in oklahoma city and by the way their team results were much better. Bottom line is though there are still moments with westbrook and these are the things you get concerned about. And in recent years. I've come to admit about a player. That's been one of my favorite players in the league. And that is when the game slows down. Shot selection and turnovers look when the games at a fast pace shot turnovers or often in issue with russell westbrook. I think everybody who watches him understands that. But you know if you're going to get one hundred and three shots or one hundred seven or one hundred and eight possessions hundred and ten possessions. You're gonna put up. If he's going to get twenty four assists you'll put up with six turnovers or five turnovers Or a couple of bad shots selections and by the way he's shooting at a much higher percentage both from the field from the three point line from the free throw line and even the turnovers in recent games have gone down a little bit. My concern about westbrook is what we've seen year in and year out in the postseason and that is when the game slows down and the players playing. It need to slow down a bit. He's not capable of slowing down. His mind is always full speed. His visit his physical play is always at full speed and that you know has led to release us in tight playoff games. So we'll see what happens when we get to the postseason right now. This team is one of the fastest. One of the best fast-break teams he by the way he's a one man fast break when he he takes off the ramya leads. The team in rebounds. He leads the team in assists. He is impossible to stay in front of and it's fun to watch now. You now go ahead. No go ahead i mean in perceiving this team now as right now and this. This seems like an obvious thing but it came as kind of like a revelation to me in a moment is i need to stop looking at this organization with ernie grunfeld is and start looking at it with. Tommy shepherds is i mean tommy sheppard has done a hell of a job putting together to the spare parts honest tea and you know so. I need to as much as i've been down on the wizards for decades literally and they've earned all of it. I need to stop to bury the ernie grunfeld in the past. He's not used the best. I know but but i i. It's still floundering around the graveyard buried him yet. It was so consumed you.

"Out there that says rules are made to be broken. Well, records are made to be broken as well. Streaks are made to be surpassed or made to come to an end, and it just so happened. That Steph Curry ran into a formidable defender in Russell Westbrook as the Warriors air wrapping up their road trip on Wednesday in Washington. Steph Curry has to take on for the most part. The battle of the hounding the aggressiveness. Russell Westbrook and you know Russ is tenacious. I mean, The man's relentless He likes to prove a point. He likes a personal challenge. This was a game in which the Warriors were up big early. And then we're up by 11 in the fourth quarter. What got sloppy. And then the shooting went cold in the fourth and so very quickly, the Wizards were able to narrow the gap. They were definitely missed opportunities for the Warriors. But the Wizards were able to take care of. There's real rocking the cradle back and forth. I'll cut stores, right head down right block to the basket Bank and score bacon score because he runs by Russell Westbrook. Hello five as it was to fly high 1 14 1 10 with 55 seconds left. Bradley. Beal had 29 points in this matchup against Curry. Top two scorers in the N B A to start tonight, Curry had just passed. Bradley Beal Washington rallies from 11 down in that final quarter. But even in that last minute after the lay up with Dave John that you hear with Dave Johnson on the Wizard's radio network, even after that, Warriors got a big feel and Andrew Wiggins blew a wide open layup that would have tied the game in the final. I think it was the final 10 seconds I was listening to the game on the war years radio network.

"Need to talk about here the turnovers. Obviously, we're in a major major issue in this one twenty turnovers for the Lakers 16 for the Wizards, you know, they had six in the first quarter the Wizards did and that was how the Lakers jumped out to a big lead that 10-point lead after the first quarter dead. And then the Wizards pretty much stopped turning the ball over and the Lakers kept racking up the turnovers. We talked about margin of error. The turnovers were a major issue in this one and you just you can't turn the ball over 20 times in a game when you don't have a d and you don't have dentist router and part of that goes back to what you were just saying Ron about guys being in unfamiliar roles that can lead to turnovers that can lead to defensive. No excuse but still for someone that's watching the game. It can be incredibly frustrating to see the turnovers just pile up and pile up and pile up and know that that's that's really putting you in a tough spot. If you're hoping to gain the game. Yeah, and and of the 20 turnovers the Wizards had nine steals which first off giving up nine steals to the second worst defense in in the league is is one of them on its own but that means that at the very least eleven of their 20 turnovers were basically unforced errors. Yeah, because they're not attributed to anyone on the Wizards wage. That and that's just you can't do that. You know the Wizards even though their record is not great. It's eleven and Seventeen. They have Bradley Beal. Who's the NBA's leading scorer and they Russell Westbrook who? Yes, he had issues as a player but I mean, this is an MVP we're talking about so it's not like the Wizards are bad by any stretch. They just didn't have a great start to the year, but they're not bad. So you can't give them any any breathing room because they'll take advantage of it. Yeah there an NBA team this is what happens if you play an NBA team and you make the mistakes that you make your going to lose games when you're doing these things when you're a while, especially if you don't have your stars and then if you are turning the ball over a lot, right, if you are not doing a good enough job on the boards, you're giving up a lot of points in the paint and you're not hidden from downtown like each of those things can in some ways. He's the the loss of one of the other ones, you know, if you turn the ball over twenty times, but you shoot 45% from 3 that makes up for it because you're getting more possession. Or more points out of those possessions where you don't turn the ball over cuz you're shooting so well from 3, if you do shoot poorly from 3 and turn the ball over lot. Then you're a big big trouble and that's what we've been seeing from the Lakers recently and then the points of the paint 66 for the Wizards 50 for the Lakers. Once again, they lose the Battle Points of the paint, but Ron big picture..

It's kind of genius. What's in your wallet. Savings and available coupons very so fred. Now that he's with the wizards russell westbrook is teaming up with another star in shooting guard. Bradley beal from what you know about both their personalities. How do you see this relationship working out. I think a personal level. I could see them getting along. They're both very competitive. I'm more curious about the basketball side. Because i could see that. Go in either way. I think there are a lot of things. That westbrook did with paul george. That could work really well with him. And bill george and build. They're just excellent moving off the ball years for three touch tights. But i'm just curious to see how it meshes because bill is now unique. Good when he's handling bar gets the screen veal for three and the top right. Now westbrook look like in those situations What kind of lineups are making play around those two guys. It's just one of those things that like. Sometimes when you see it you start to realize things like oh. I didn't even think they could run this together. Oh i didn't even think that this might be a problem right off the bat. The wizards have missed the playoffs. In each of the last two seasons under scott brooks with that in mind. Is this a make or break season for him in washington. I would say probably. I mean especially because it's his last year under contract. I mean you take any coach. Who's entering the last year deal and there's always going to be speculation on that but this team expects to be pretty good now now when we say maker break. I don't really know what the make is. And i don't really know what the break is like. If you asked me wade were they have to finish order for brooks to come back next year. I don't know the answer to that. But yeah i mean if this team really underwhelms. It's going to be hard to imagine how any coach ends up resigning in that scenario and if this team all of a sudden russell westbrook has his best year in. Let's say three seasons and you know the started out positive returns and westbrook vouchers for him and bill decides. He wants to stay wants to play for them. Then you know maybe you end up getting positive results moving forward and finally fred. What are your expectations for this wizards team in a much more competitive eastern conference. Do they have what it takes to get to the playoffs and potentially make a run. I think there's somewhere in that conversation for the in tournament. Eight nine somewhere in there. Like i think them in atlanta are probably eight nine in orlando in that conversation. Maybe charlotte in that conversation. But i kind of think they they in atlanta are a step ahead of charlotte in orlando. Maybe the way they end up climbing in the standings is if the offense just is one of the four best in the league while the fi best in the league and the defense makes a little bit of a jump. And that's it gets a forty five or forty eight wets. But i think i need to see that from the defense before i give them that degree of credit. But i think they'll be interesting. And i think they'll be fun to watch a friend. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having you can read fred.

"First of all. Can you just take us through the winding road of how russell westbrook ended up with the washington wizards so at some point over the offseason westbrook made it clear to the rockets that he wanted them to find him a new home. Something is up in houston. Tell our tim macmahon in. Adrian were ski that both russell westbrook and james harden have expressed uncertainty about the direction of the franchise. And when you have a guy who makes that sum of money and you have to match salaries it just becomes very difficult to find a market and that's kind of why you see a lot of these guys on supermax contracts. Getting swamped see john. Wall and russell westbrook ending up in a similar situation is the only two guys that are comparable because their salaries of the exact really try to make sense but one hundred and thirty two million one hundred and thirty two million. Okay ready to pull a trigger. That i think it was more of like you know what we think. Your guy will be better for us and we think our guy would be better for you. So why don't we just compromising. Meet somewhere in the middle on this but wizards and rockets agreeing to trade there on happy point guards. John wall the houston russell. Westbrook to washington wizards also sent the rockets a lottery. Protective twenty twenty three first round pick you wrote about how westbrook has made his presence known with his new team pretty much right away. What did you mean by that so. I asked the question of ryuhachi mira earlier this week about what he's learned about russ during his short time that they've been practicing together and the first thing that really said he's a great leader. His vocal is almost like a hiccup yellow dog. Does he always starts me. Is greg guy. I liked where with him. You know he actually changed. Like energy. <hes> the team. That's not something you always hear about russell westbrook but you know that he's loud you know that he's going to make his personality known as smith who is their backup point guard and has played for eleven organizations in his career. He got a call the night of the trade while he was asleep. Like in the middle of the night from russell westbrook and one o'clock in the morning and he's i wake up man what you're doing. I'm like brought. I am sleep. He like you know what. I'm all come on. You know what kind of juice we break in who russ is and restaurants kept yelling at him. Aren't you juiced argued right now. Aren't you juiced an issue is like i'm a sleep so i think the amount of energy that he's going to bring was apparent from that one. Am moment when he called in the middle of the night and welcome.

"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..

"Yeah i have no trash talk to offer you kidding me that embarrassing for wizards fans like an honestly the worst part about it was that it was all super predictable in the second the celtics twitter tweeted out their starters at about like five thirty in the afternoon yesterday the celtics were starting terry rosier aaron baynes tatum and like three d or two d leaguers like it was just it was really bad and and the second i saw that i was like okay great so this is one of those games where brad stevens is going to coach them up the wizards were on a back to back they had just blown game of the timber wolves the night before and i was positive that it was going to end badly i actually texted some friends i'm gonna lose my mind when the when the wizards lose this game night and sure enough the wizards were down twenty like halfway through the firsthalf and from there you know a lot of hijinks ensued and i was almost positive that jason tatum was gonna break my heart and to be fair i absolutely deserve jason tatum beating my favorite team after all the shit we've talked over the last year and he's been great but but thankfully jodie meeks mike guy sadder and ski auto porter bradley beal had like twenty five points the second half the wizard salvage a little bit of dignity last night still not a great sign that they had to go to double overtime to beat the celtics jv team but you know i'll take the victories wherever i can get there were no great sides that gabe a couple of thoughts are what you said first of all i was waiting for the boston media to leak out that jerry colangelo had texted jason tatum after the game to let them know that don't worry just because he brick that game winning free throw and just because he missed the three at the end of overtime doesn't affect his hall fame eligibility he still able to be in shine in spring kind of ease his nerves and and show the respect to twelve time we we didn't get that report for some reason second of all your point about like the celtics.
