"Want with it for your plan in this game and they do lebron always played. I'll give credit for that. He always does suit up when it's kinda it's he got hurt on christmas and that's why i didn't make the playoffs luther point just like is and i mean there's no way because of that reason there's no way that they're playing like a back to back in a it's not like the nets are playing the clippers on the twenty fourth. They could. But i doubt it on another note on christmas day games. If you're niccolo yokich like you have to just accept the fact that you're a fake. Mvp right now. I think it's a year of the year the mvp of the league. You don't get an opening night game national television. You don't get a christmas day and like the nba is just going to forget that nico yokich won mvp. He's gonna be when our exactly when our great grandchildren are doing this. Podcast and it's still going on little little abraham in ruto the nba. Eventually just gonna take a detour and podcast for a little bit. Like i am going to ask your ugly ass. Grandkid who won the twenty twenty nba mvp. And they'll have no idea not even when they name. Now it's really nice. You think like people are never gonna have even known joel. Embiid was an nba player. You know. I don't know how that math had. It's just like if yokich who won. Mvp news lettuce team to deeper in the playoffs. Pretty much accomplished everything that embiid has yet to accomplish. it would be tough to imagine. Can't remember yogesh. there's no way they would remember drawn bead now. I dog anyways to k- ratings came out flat through them quickly. Tie at the top between four guys who got ninety six overall year. Nineteen lebron james. Kevin durant who is on the cover who said he should be ninety nine jaanus finals. Mvp and ninety six seven curry won the scoring title. Ninety six kuwa- on his acl. Ninety five Iverson got tatum as a ninety young as in eighty nine. So as i on lamelo ball and eighty four. Those are the notable ones that we've got thoughts. Who are we are ninety nine like you know how like you can never be heard and you could be a ninety nine is now now we capping it at night does not happen ninety six. It was just the way to as always pretty tough on the ratings Not unlike madden madden's a little more generous and normally like katie and brian have been ninety eight ninety. Nine four steph been ninety seven Jaanus i don't know if he's ever gone over ninety six but if feels like these guys could have been given a couple extra points who is. I don't think it's necessarily about the points guy. 'cause you look at the for them and it's like i genuinely you look at the for them and i think yanna should be higher than ninety six and that it's just a question of do think the other guys should be as like to me. I just think jaanus what he did. I don't i don't do not appreciate the fact that the nba or not mba ronnie's. I hate running to k by the way that ronnie too is. I don't even know if he comes up with. These ratings is leaving it up to the fans to decide who is the best out these. It shouldn't be four of them. In one grouping let's give respect where respect is due. Put lebron katie tied at really. Yeah see it's a it's a it's a respecting. But that's the thing out of those four this. I would rank it right now today if i were doing to k. Overall out of jaanus ninety seven katie. Ninety six lebron and steph ninety five. That's how you're you're taking katie points off because of the size of his foot correct katie points. So when you're building these things like katie's pal now you're your video game. Katie's passing honest is shooting limited from going.

You've seen lebron. James clear everybody out and go in for the layup or dunk. Reverse joker has so many different moves. The up and unders the triple fakes. You know he has a lot of different moves down there that i like. I can't even begin to describe half of what he does inside the paint. And that's not even the that's he can also shoot the ball. I mean he's. He's an entertaining basketball player. His passing again. I haven't even talked about the passing. Some of those passes sensational to watch yet.

Hey i never once said he's not the mvp it's like. Yeah but she didn't push it. Why why was it. Nick right and rachel nichols and all these nba guys and gals that we're constantly going. Okay my problem is. It's not that you didn't talk about joker. Even though reggie miller just learned how to pronounce his name this season. It's the spent five minutes on joker and spent twenty on crispell. That's the problem. It's almost like you've got your quota. Okay he's the mvp real quick okay.

"For superstars Saturday night and race number two of the Camping World SRX series of the dirt track at Knoxville Fairgrounds Jam packed Saturday of sports. It's Saturday on CBS. I I didn't like Yokich getting thrown out of game number four the other night. Didn't like that. I thought that it wasn't grounds for rejection. That is The final game of the season for the Nuggets. That's a playoff game. That's obviously their entire season. And I just think unless Yokich makes direct contact with an opposing player with his hand of the face And it's kind of intentionally. Getting aggressive to the face area. Punch. Okay, That's an injection. I didn't think what he did in that spot warranted an ejection because it was unintentional. He was going for the ball, but quit. Obviously the nose clip the face. Now Yokich does himself no favors because he's playing out of control. He's taken a huge wing at the ball with a giant arm and hand in paw. And because he's over doing it because he's frustrated that they're down three when trailing in the game itself. Yokich puts himself in a bad situation there, but I didn't think it was grounds for dismissal. But What I saw on social media and heard other places when that happened that night or yesterday, well that that somehow defined that game. That the Nuggets would have won that game or deserved to win that game. Or the Yokich thing changed everything. No. The Yokich rejection didn't change everything because At that point of the game, the Nuggets were still trailing, and in the series, they had just lost three games of the Yokich playing. So they had already lost three and three quarters games with Yokich on the floor. That final quarter without Yokich didn't define the series. I didn't change.

If Utah loses, and it's two games apiece. So if you ask me this question tomorrow, and the Jazz are up 31 because we are splitting hairs between those two teams. I would go with the jazz. But the fact that I don't even know if the Jazz are going to get through yet, even though I think they're going to win the series Right now the sun to the team to beat their four wins away from going to the NBA Finals. Where you look at the Clippers, they would have to get four in the next round and three in this round. So four plus three is seven, right? And for the Utah Jazz. They still need six wins to get to the NBA Finals, so the sons have a leg up. So timing is everything. We were splitting hairs going into the postseason with jazz and the Suns. I'm not telling the Jazz can't get to the NBA Finals. But right now the sun set the leg up because they already won the two series while the Jazz and the Clippers have not so the sons of the team to beat in the West Yes, I go on sides. So let's talk about that matchup the sons would face as they sit at home and wait the Jazz. The Clippers are battling for the right to play Phoenix in the Western coverage finals. Now, after inefficient first two games from Paul George, he responded in a big way in Game three pouring in 31 points. As the Clippers blood the Jazz It will be almost 30 points interruption. Sure, so I'm watching that game in the Poconos with my friends, and they all know I'm not the biggest Paul George fan in the world. So before the game,.

"All right. Get into a little bit of basketball here. Aaron gordon the big acquisition at the deadline for the denver nuggets made his debut sunday verse.

He played really well off to coca shed a beautiful dunk on the baseline. This is what they want him to be. They want him to be a cutter playing with better players for the first time in his career. I mean he's played with better players and vuckovich but not a player. I'm nicola yokich is standards. I just wondered when aaron gordon went over to the nuggets. Would he be able to cut that dribbling out. He played more like a superstar more ball in his hands. I'm going to do this thing on my own. Can he be a support player. He used nicole yoga's gravity pretty well in this game they will pick and roll action going nine shots. The only misses were from three point. Land the more tuesday better with aaron gordon.

"All right fellas. Let's keep moving here. Big baller brand versus the king. Wanna talk about this game last night so lamelo basically saying to us. I mentioned this yesterday. That it's just another game playing lebron and as for lebron. It was just another day in the office. Thirty seven eighty six became then talked about a potential fifth. Mvp award lebron running or here my name of some of the best basketball players in the league this year again. it would mean a lot At my age What i'm able to do what i've been doing this whole season You know what our brains at a table every single night on both sides of the floor. it would mean a unbelievable thing for me personally. Is my career so to see what a chips may. Kyle kuzma reiterating. That sediment saying you should want eight or nine guys. We haven't had this conversation in a while. The last time i asked you max i think you had. Joel embiid as your guy. So where are you now. Who do you think's the biggest threat to lebron for. Mvp i used to be very clear. Lebron's the mvp. This moment and beat has now missed too much time. And he's presently hurt. Lebron is the mvp of the league at this moment. The easy answer to who's the biggest threat is james harden. He's playing the best basketball of his career. And that's really saying something and kyrie's been great and have been other great james harden you watch him now. You're watching basketball. Genius like the combination of scoring from anywhere on the floor at historically elite levels combined with the kind of court vision and unselfishness and setting up his teammates that he has shown in brooklyn in the service of winning has been remarkable however pardon also miss time in the beginning of the season because he won on the team. He's on the rockets and he was forcing his way off the rockets. So let me make a suggestion here. I considered yokich best offensive player in the league this year. I think stephen the biggest threat to lebron james. Mvp is damian. Lillard damian lillard a man that you have sat up here right in that spot and apologized to on. I take on this show for ignoring we. We all know him in apology. Dropped thirty six last night. Is he has a colt. Euro kind of status in the nba. Everyone loves this guy used the most clutch player in the league. That is you nets like unanimous consensus that please if not most clutch player damian lillard. He's averaging thirty points a night with assist everything you want. He has taken team decimated by injury destroyed by injury no mccollum until recently and their fourth in the western conference the fourth best record tied for fourth best in the western conference. He's the sentimental favourite. He's playing mvp level. He's shown leadership we all know he has not been recognized. Enough hardens miss time with his team and beads now hurt that you look at each candidate on other teams and lillard is at least as good as any of them. I think he's the biggest lebron's the mvp lillard is biggest threat.

"Denver Big man. Nikolas Yokich dropped. It is six triple double the season last night, the Nuggets beat the Lakers won 22 1. Oh, five. They got hurt. You know that. And the Joker was doing his thing. 23 points. 16 rebounds. 10 assists here, so yogurts continues to trail Only Joel and B for the league High in P E. R 30.91 a shade below 31. Nuggets have won three straight and sit seventh in the West to Marbury gets his act together, They're gonna start. You know, you would think that take a nice will jump. They're doing more brought to you by the Home Depot. All right, Kiki and charity here. CBS Sports radio now. We have had a point teak, and we've hit this point. With other sports different facets of sport, and there have been things that have been changed to alter the aesthetics of said game a couple of examples after the 68 world Syriza's The Cardinals and the Tigers. Lola, It's Gibson. McClane. No runs. No. Just just no offense and Gibson at a six year that you're too many everybody did. It was the year the picture. They lowered the mound. All right, so the higher the man, the more leverage the pitcher has. The lower goes obviously, the less leverage the advantage gets nullified a little bit. We've seen The NHL mess around with the with the courage or the stick, Okay to avoid, you know the easier lift, which makes it tougher on the goalie. We've seen the NFL mess around the playbook with with the rules. What's enforce them. What's the point of emphasis? We've seen little league bat diameters shrink the elasticity. If you will of the actual bath, the physics behind that the bounce off the bat if you will, that's been greatly reduced for fear of injury, etcetera. We are at the point now. At least it is my strong opinion. We're at the point now where the NBA has got to do something. They've got to do something and we can start by. You want to talk about maybe widening the court. I could have that conversation. You want to talk about pushing the three point line further back. I'll certainly had that conversation. You want to talk about allowing players not quite the nineties with the Knicks, but Annette element of that we can hand check a little bit more T avoid guys being so free. Every single night. It's either a dunk or three and it's awful to watch. Why is why do you hate hate it so much because that's what people are interested in from now May From, um, a statement standpoint, maybe not a fundamental standpoint, but an excitement standpoint. I think it's because we live in a highlight generation. People are always looking for the highlights and the step back three pointers. The highlight that's just Aziz. The dunk or the You know the pick and roll, Allie. You think I mean it's it is what it is. I get it. I understand it The I wonder, though you know how much that translates into winning championships, And the answer is it's less just unless you're the Warriors. It really has it. Um, you know, there are lots of teams that take a ton of three points. In fact, last year, the Milwaukee Bucks were one of the top shooting three pointer teams. They weren't the top of that old man is Houston. I think, um, but they shot a lot of three pointers. And you think about the team you like Chris Milton Yonas. Right. That's all three point shooter. Lopez shoots him. Yeah, good, but it's pretty good. But that's the point. Like working. Lopez is standing out of the three point line, Jack it up three pointers and so e know that it, Zpa wrote of the game like stretching and expanding the floor Because bodies are so much bigger now you kind of have to do that. But it's gotten to the point where Unless you're elite at it, like the Golden State Warriors were elite at it. Is that really gonna win you a championship? I mean, the Lakers weren't three point shooting, You know, mavens last year? No, that's not why they won the championship. The Cavaliers when they beat the Warriors and that, you know, break up there. They're run that they weren't an elite from three point range. They could shoot him, but they weren't elite from it. So I think it's I think it's some point. It might flip back BT because teams are all three point when we talk about the Rockets all the time. Like how you hated that with James Harden, and you were right, right? They just they were never winning a championship doing that, So maybe it's some point. You teams and organizations and coaches start to realize While this is an exciting philosophy, which I don't even think it is exciting things so boring. I grew not exciting to me, but it's not a winning one. I don't like it because you could go cold. And be be blown out of the building because you don't know how to do anything else of the three point Yeah, well, listen to your point. It's never going back unless the MBA forces you to re evaluate. How you deploy your players moving forward. There will never be a coaching staff that sits back now without incentive or direction from the league, and they say, You know what, man? It's It's not working for us and or we don't know. You have to do it because you have to keep up because every game that you watch there is just a, uh It, Zeke Raysy. I mean, they're read the box scores now. Yeah, and I'm looking at this neck nuggets in the jazz game. I mean, the nuggets were how many? How many shots did they take? They total? Well, I'm just looking at the three point shots, but you got to look at the racial. That's my point. True, locate the ratio 15 to 17 in the first half..

"All callers on the Goodyear hotline at 887293776. That is triple eight SE E Spn and his time for us to go out to the Goodyear hotline We bring in Home. Young Woo Suk, who is our writer for ESPN? L A. He is in Los Angeles. He was on the Clipper beat tonight as the Clippers knocked off the calves, but he's also had an eye on Lakers and nuggets and the M V P race, So we're gonna go around the MBA. I'm happy Valentine's Day You're on ESPN Radio with Aaron Goldhammer and Monica McNutt. Valentine's Day, guys. Home as you watched Anthony Davis go down with this Achilles injury. What was the first thing is you saw it, maybe on a monitor or saw it pop up on Twitter that ran through your mind. Actually happen to be watching the game and you know, he looked like he bought needs with Yokich. But really It's how he reacted to that injury, grabbing almost like his ankle, most tendonitis area and we know that he's had Some trouble with the tendinitis with a pendant Achilles tendon this season so and of course, was reporting that it is his Achilles tendon. Ominous or whatever. I'm not exactly sure the exact terminology but Basically his Achilles has been bothering him all season, and I would expect the Lakers to really kind of rest. A D. Make sure he's all right. That is the most important thing this season this entire season for Lakers has been their health. A Z good as they are, as good as they can be, really, for the chance is about making sure they're going to be all right for the playoffs and talking to some of the people with the Lakers earlier this season. I don't think they're really that concerned about their seeding. It's really about their health going into the playoff run, making sure that they're right and they're taking him in the playoffs and a lot of that has to do with the health of LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Yeah, that that is a no brainer. Of course, Those two obviously are paramount to what the Lakers are trying to do. Um, so I guess we'll let's go. Let's go here on because the broadcast literally just put up a slab of N v P contenders and you got two in this game. Whether it's LeBron and you've got a joker in this particular ball game for you. What do you think that this M V P thing is going to come down to it? It's a really tight race this year when you look across the league Certainly you know LeBron James to me is the best player in the league. But of course, MPP doesn't always come down to who the best player in the league is. It's about how your team is playing. With your statistics are what your influences on that team. How about team did this season before? How is doing now? There's a whole bunch of things that voters factor in. And to me right now. It's probably a good three man race. With LeBron James Joelle indeed. And the cola Yokich. Kevin Durant to me also in the mix, but Kevin Durant obviously coming up with an injury, stay with hamstring, and then you got the Clippers with quite Leonard called. Georgia had an incredible start to the season, but he's been hurt. Knock. Wiser is hurt now, too, as well with the lower left leg to Ginny and play tonight, But to me, it really comes down to LeBron James at this lake is this Laker team can stay atop the standings. On be as good as they've been. Jo Ellan beat has been incredible. With Doc Rivers kind of leading the way this season for him on DeNicola Yokich, the Denver Nuggets have to win more games. In order for Yokich is M V P case to really be stronger. Yoki. Just numbers have been unbelievable. I mean, he started off the season pretty much in threatening to become the first center to lead the league in a fish. Since, um well, Chamberlain. I mean, that's the statistics have been that ridiculous this season. I think tonight via the Triple double. We're looking at maybe five or six triple doubles on the season when teams try to take away his assists, and this is just went down for about a 10 game stretch. He went on a scoring care. So right now is games at a level where he's comfortable whatever defense's air giving him if you tried to make him a scorer in pass defense have said, Okay, let's turn him in to score because he's not that selfish. So Selfless that he doesn't look to score. But now he's looking to score. He dropped 45 50 points on, so that's how good he's been. But the Nuggets have haven't been really putting together wins. If they can start putting their the ones Nicole Yokich is M V. P. Hayes gets that much stronger. You have a feature on my no coming soon on ESPN dot com. When does that drop I think it probably at the end of the month that we're looking at. Just talk about the evolution of Yokich is game and how good of a pastor's been like. Even LeBron has been talking about the similarities they have. Just kind of like the art of passing the joy passing. Everything starts with the passing for Nicole Yokich. And how much is game is devolved to the point where he's so comfortable. Whatever defense is trying to take away from him, he's going to find another way to beat you, And he's showing that he showed that again tonight. Home. Young Masuka is our guests. ESPN l A writer. Game night, ESPN radio ESPN app. I'm Aaron Goldhammer. With Monica. Make not home. What does it say about the state of the M v p that we haven't had a center win it in over 20 years? But now this might finally be the time that for the first time since shack a game that used to be dominated by big man is is sort of being dominated by big men again. Yeah, You know, as I was working on this Jochen feature, I talked tol Rick Spoelstra and asked him before they face the nuggets. You know when you when you came in the league in the mid nineties. Well, what would you have thought of used thought Center like Nicola Yokich basically have a chance to lead the league in assists, and he said that if you just look at that heat Nuggets game In many ways, those two teams, the point guard is the center with Bam out of bio and the coal yoke it and that's how far the game has come and you sing in the mid nineties. I mean back then you were thinking about Ewing and morning and these type of plotting centers who would score inside block shots. And of course, that you just mentioned shack. The game is evolved so much now or before. It was like guard dominated the last several years, But now you've got big men who can play like point guards. And so when you see Nicole, the yolk is bringing the ball up court. It's like no big deal, but for defense is they're certainly trying to get used to that, because before it was always like a point guard driven, guard driven type of league And now you've got seven footers who basically can control the offense, bring the ball up the floor rebounds, or, um, assist. They could do it all. And I think you're going to start to see probably in the next two years. More centers and more big men. The league is trying to look for more guys like you. Okay, You're not a viable Mm. That zero. Crazy man them numbers. That joke is just putting up. All right, so staying with the big man. No, but this guy can do some of that inspires, but for the most part, he's a grand protector. And he happens to be Rudy. Go bear playing for the Utah Jazz were out on the West Coast on I'm sure that you've seen what actually Coming up for the Jazz. They got the Clippers twice. The Lakers won. So they'll start this five game stretch with the Sixers. What do you kind of anticipate? Or do you have any thoughts as they hit this little bit of a gauntlet of a stretch? Utah Jazz continue to fly under the radar, which is unbelievable for team that's won as many games of Big one in a row. Everybody wants to talk about the Lakers. They want to talk about the Clippers and L. A L, a dominant Utah, though, has been quietly flying under the radar as perhaps the best team in the embassy. Of course, we have to see it come playoff time. Think a lot of people remember that the Jazz were unable to finish off the Denver Nuggets with that 31 seriously, but again so that the Clippers What is one able to do it either, But But really, I mean, you look at Donovan Mitchell getting better and that team even with Mike Conley out, it's a unit is a well coached unit that plays together They know their roles. And you know, like Rudy Gobert. As good as he is. He just does all the little things And this is he 20 much personifies the Utah jazz. I mean, he'll step clean that are almost like a cyst that open up guys were basket. That's like their system, and they just don't want you there. Not flashy by any means, but they get the job done, and I think when they come in here and they play the Clippers is gonna be a great game because I'm sure the Utah Jazz will be looking to make a statement. The Clippers will just have to see you. Quite Leonard and Paul George will be healthy enough to play Paul George is now missed. I think something about 44 games in a row and so like for five games, and so we'll have to see if he's ready to come back..

Let's give the nuggets credit to straight series down three one comeback when Bo series Yokich. There's no. Yeah. But with Yokich is at minimum a second tier superstar right behind the parental VP candidates well. He was a I hear superstar in this game. For sure. He totally eviscerated Kawai Leonard in this game and really in the back half of the series but in this game. especially. Yeah I mean he he was great in this game I mean. Just. Look at the box score Paul millsap only had six points but. his buckets were huge. He played on the better six point three rebound performances. I've ever seen Jamal Murray. We've gotta get in this guy's on the Kahane's factor starting five this year forty points in a game seven. So yes. Absolutely, give the nuggets credit and we've got time to talk nice about the nuggets. But what we need to do right now is pile on the most arrogant bunch of guys. The most Arab arrogant franchises never sniffed a frigging conference finals and hey, props to the Portland Trailblazers back court for completely unloading their troll game.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray lead improved energetic effort to beat Clippers in Game 2

"Yesterday the nuggets lead. wire-to-wire top the clippers tie the series at one game apiece a little surprising sure I mean they got off to a huge lead and held onto the victory lead biggest takeaway from the nuggets game two victory over lic. So many positives take of this from Denver they jump. The clippers gave him the off punch in the mouth from the start, which is to say it was led by their styles, Jamal and nickel Yokich. They got lots of contributions from other guys as well. MILLSAP I thought was good in this game. Gary. Harris Marco Porter Jr. coming off the bench gays in the middle of a lift as well and even rant. Jeremy Grant was their defense I thought was exceptional. There was a several times where the clippers were in the pint and there was two or three Denver Nuggets, contesting shot blocking shots, and really making the clippers feel them in the paint, which is important. But the biggest takeaway for me is we knew the clippers we're GONNA come back. This is a twenty point late in the first half and it. was like in the NBA that never lost especially in the playoffs. The biggest question for me would the nuggets be able to hold onto this game and win it, and there was a crucial moment that minutes ago in the fourth quarter I think it was Po Georgia to three brought to a five point game and that was the sliding doors moment of the game. What would the nuggets through from? And began to our and just show that that first quarter net hop surge was nothing more than like. All right. We don't get swept all would they actually be able to maintain what they've played up to for that point and they did they came out and hit three threes after that and basically stretch the game out and Kinda sealed it from there. You know like it was sort of sent the message that the clippers like we're. Not going away and and again, it wasn't just Murray and Yokich was other guy is contributing and so to me it did sort of say, Oh, I, picked I, think the clippers to win this five. But after watching that performance in the way that they won that wire to wire, I'm a little more now convinced that the the the nuggets can make this series and an an a longer series I still think clip is ultimately win it. But if it goes six or seven, now, I wouldn't be surprised because I just thought that the Denver Nuggets after Guy Wander the first quarter they thought it off well, and then they just Kinda sunk from there and Michael Malone said we need to have better energy for the entire game and they absolutely did last night. So very impressive performance from everyone yokich again was great and so is Mary but really important that those other. Guys contribute and make this more than just a sort of a like a like a run in that first quarter just to get just to get system, they actually sustain that the entire game. So that's what I thought was most important for the nuggets at the something there that they can build on going forward in this

Biggest losers from 2020 NBA trade deadline

"Go through the losers of the trade deadline but not really get into the transactions. And who did poorly knows going to go a little bigger picture check car trade deadline's grades. PODCAST trade deadline grades podcast for all the losers etc okay. Bigger picture second runner up from the trade deadline. Losers people people living in the eastern time zone why well the warriors they always planned that late game this season on the west coast but this year here. No one has had to watch him. We get to go to sleep. It's great now. They make the move for Wiggins plus curry and Thompson coming back and US on the east coast after. Stay up and watch them next season. I know you international folks are saying way manage a crap about you gotta be up till eleven twelve one. We gotta be up at five in the morning okay. You're right but this is my the situation. This is my life. It's GONNA stick next year. I haven't a watch getting wigan with every single night if he's in that time slot and I imagine they're going to get national. TV after national TV game right with curry and Klay back. That's going to be weird actually to see wiggins in sort of national TV Games. Because you don't see it a lot with the wolves over his that I hadn't really thought about that and people still hate him. I don't know if that's going to be good or bad for it will be a spewing. I'm sure next season as I think it was. Michael said Scrub those wiggins takes scrub them out of your tweets. Because maybe it'll turn it around. We'll see first runner up very tall boys and young men because the center position in the NBA. Just doesn't in pay like it used to. I won't say it's extinct because saw tall players will still be desired in the NBA. So tall boys can still make it there. But only the cream of the crop are going to get paid like high paid wings or guards for the foreseeable future. Like Yokich or a or Anthony Davis for towns the rest. They'll have jobs it just. It is desirable as it was a few years ago. So young tall. He's can go back to modeling or being cameraman and scrums important position. But do you WanNa play in the NBA anymore. Just not as great as desirable desirable. I would say if the tall buys don't want to play basketball. I suggest stick to tiddlywinks and playstation. But I'm going to give the worst of the week to the Pistons Ha. I wasn't GonNa get transactional but they couldn't get a first round pick for Andre Drummond one second round pick in two you guys who can't even play significant minutes for the cavs as what they got back we got into it on the spot but if the market was that dry why deal. I'm now dealer months ago when he was absolutely balling there's literally conversations about him being the best center in the NBA. Along with those guys. I mentioned Yokich Coca Chamba. I know it sounds crazy. But he was when he was doing. Twenty Twenty S. He was in that conversation anyways he was at the table he wasn't we wasn't one of the big but why not Dealing with it or wait till June. They got nothing. They literally got nothing. I don't see why you rush it when you when you look at it now in hindsight insight because you because you didn't want two more months of bad chemistry in the locker room well it's already bad. I mean bad culture why not have two more months and potentially get a first round pick. That's all we're asking for. I think that's nuts. It's really that's when you look at it. It is well. We couldn't believe it the bag. The beans came back for Andre Drummond. It's shocking yeah you would think a guy that is a two time all star again. That is an elite rebounder who is seventeen and and what type of guy who's pretty consistent. He plays a lot You can't even get a first round pick in today's NBA. That's tough. Yeah but they picked their direction they did the piss definitely picked a direction and said we are we are rebuilding. There is no. We don't even want to be worried about whether or not he picks up that adoption and then under contract for one more year which. I don't think he's going to do anyway still but they didn't want that concerns but then train them in June or somebody else is also going to give via a bag of beans summer. means it is crazy because we've been watching basketball for a long time and when you say those numbers like he's literally averaging eighteen sixty got it is good but anyway some big old numbers and I mean. There's a reason Andre Drummond was the first name really on the trade block. It was him and Kevin Love and know what he's given up a first round. Pick gauge it right. Like they're just like they're like. Hey Man Andre Drummond people might want it for a first round. Pick in everybody in the league was like actually no So there's got to be a tough one for him so now they're playing together. Those guys you mentioned you're on the trade boil hall my goodness yeah. Yeah what literally. What is their lineup? GonNa be. They gotta buy out Tristan Thompson. Or what they're gonNA play. Kevin love at the three clients. Don't get bought out apparent. They never give up money. That's for sure they are the opposite of the rockets. Now we've got the giant cavs at least the giant cavs. That's right I I like it because we always got those seven o'clock starts. The cavs are generally involved in one of those games. The Piston used to be and still be. But you know what I mean. They'll be watching and I'll be tuning in for the first six minutes of those Casper's there's man who loves a rebound highlight every cavs game. I can't wait I he'll be going crazy all by yourself. Isn't it it all these islands would be like. What the in the cavs game? You're like. Yeah there was like sixteen rebounds in the first quarter. You know who'll be watching John Shoe Schumer. I respect that all right so those are the worst of the

Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic overwhelm the Trail Blazers

"Tuesday night that nuggets completely pummeled the blazers at home in Denver one twenty four and ninety eight of the big story coming out of that game was Paul Millsap after a pretty tepid series against the Spurs Millsap has been absolutely beast. Ing the blazers he's dominating, man. But he's pretty much scoring a will. Yeah. And I think a lot of it is just like he means so much to that defense that like is basically honed by a bunch of dudes who are younger than twenty six. They're all they're all born after the ninety s. Millsap is the only player born in the eighties on that team. It's really wild. He he's been a real strong stabilizing force for them. I think for the most part it's because Millsap has been on a me new has been on guys who haven't really who don't really possess a lot of you know, playmaking prowess on their own. So he's been able to kind of quarterback from the back line, and it's made a huge difference. I mean that's been the story for Denver is like they're really exposing. Which I mean, we knew it was gonna happen eventually, but Amini one heartless they're just not guarding those guys. They're playing off them. It's letting them hide Yokich yet Millsaps kind of in the middle quarterback in the whole team. You look at like I feel like I look at these two teams. I look at one team has spent the money on Paul Millsap when they had creating space and wants to put them line. Evan turner. And it's like one move like that as such an impact like when you're paying thirty dollars per event. Erin, you've got to have the right veteran it, of course, like it isn't fair to Portland because I don't think most was free that summer, right? No. There's so much luck that goes into it so much chance that goes in the team building. But it's made all the difference in the world. Yeah. The other thing too. I remember size of the I did a big store in Yokich at training him. I remember talking to Millsap about it. And to see him talking about how he recognized that Yokich was so talented, how encouraged Yokich to take up Ford Nicotrol the team how I took a step back and sort of focusing on defense to complement this young star. And this is right. When the whole like Jane bar thing happened in Minnesota. And I was like man, this is what like a great veteran. Does right. Like, I had the ability to change my game to encourage younger players to empower them. I feel like a Millsap to me like what he's done on. And off the court. It's just been really it's a really cool too cool to see a guy like recognize his limitations and kind of make his team better 'cause he could've easily pull Jimmy Butler feed one to and been like, I'm Paul Millsap. I'm making three dollars a year. This is my team complement me. And like you're saying we can do it and get the ball on his hands. He can allot, but he's like chose and take a step back. And now when his time. He can pop in. And I haven't go to conference final Jimmy's out here. You know, fight when players all the time. I mean, it's really amazing that like him and Al Horford or just kind of cut from the same cloth. They shared the front court for so many years and in Atlanta, Atlanta's just like, I can't believe those two players coexisted at the same time. And I can't believe the hawks couldn't do much with that. I mean, they just got burning into LeBron. That was that was always there thing. It was really it was a fun team. It was like a hipsters paradise team, man. And then they may Jeff Teagle a lot of money they make calc over a lot of money. I mean, they made the Mari Carol out of money. Look back on a now like Teague. Caroline, Korver such limited players, but in Atlanta, played with Millsap and Horford, they looked freaking awesome. That one year. They're all stars.

"On the hardwood guys the raptors the nuggets they've regained home-court advantage in their conference semifinals that even their respective series at two games. A piece of good basketball action this weekend Gaylon? Start with the Sixers game yesterday. I thought they had the game in hand about two three one in that series headed terrible fourth quarter stressing poorly the Sixers played, but you know, everyone about Kevin Durant stellar performance in the playoffs for the goals. They warriors who's talking about collide Leonard, I think he might even be playing better than K D thirty nine points, fourteen rebounds yesterday thirteen to twenty from the field in Sixers second year guard Ben Simmons tried to guard Kawhi Leonard, and he got absolutely destroyed. Simmons had one of his worst game. As a pro. Yes today. And then Joel Embiid only had eleven points, blaming an illness. And no sleep Sali's been strange either been great or a no show of this series. But again in that fourth quarter Sixers seven minutes without a field goal. And now they go back to Toronto for game. Five in Toronto lake. You said has homecourt advantage again. And then last night that nuggets blazer series. That's clearly been the most fun series the watch so far. I mean, let's not forget about. On Friday nights. Epic four overtime win for the blazers. But yesterday Denver prevailed on the road one sixteen one twelve they tied to series of two apiece. Nugget center Nikola Jokic Matt posted another triple double. I can't stress enough. How valuable job for these Doug? We all know we can score pass and rebound. But his ability to set screens met freeze of other nuggets players for wide open looks on just about every possession. You take Yokich off his team. They don't even make the playoffs. That's valuable. He is. Yeah. Absolutely. Right. On those screens to getting back the Colli Mike Adams with NBA dot com averaging thirty eight points per game on sixty two percent shooting. Jordan averaged over thirty five on sixty percent of shooting in one playoff series other than that. Nobody LeBron Katie Koby never did it. So we are watching greatness right now in the NBA and in the NBA playoffs, watch TV watching quite lettered in you know, he does everything. So well, but you know, they didn't think he was a good shooter early in his career in Popovich would say that with the Spurs. Now the league three. Point shooter. I mean, he doesn't miss shots as Baker and one other thing I wanted to mention Steph curry struggled where where was he where was he in the fourth quarter? I know everyone is talking about it have you seven at twenty three from the field. But the biggest problem for stent has been his defense. I mean, if you watch the rockets every possession, they attack Steph curry Weber Steph guarding that guy is getting the ball, and they're attacking Steph, and it's getting his head, and it's hurting offense and one other thing you'll Katy at forty six in the warriors loss on Saturday night. But it was a bad forty six matters nothing against K D. But the warriors lose their dynamic of all that ball movement and cutting away from the ball back door cuts. They all just stood around and watched Katie and that fourth quarter. And that's that makes the rocket excuse me, the warriors beatable and predictable negotiating next year's contract. I mean, I I don't I've never seen Katie play. Like this in the playoffs. You're talking about the last three to four games. I I would think I have to go back and look at the numbers, but he's averaging at least more than thirty a game in the last three to four games. I wanna say thirty eight a game and those four last four games. It's been unbelievable. You just make an shots like ripping on caney for scorn too much. What do you? If you want percents from the field. He's doing nothing wrong. He's played as well. As anyone's ever played on the offensive enemy NBA. No doubt about it. Yeah. Well, it does. But it does get stale. It does you know, it does get slow. And when one guy is doing all the work, and nobody else is

"Are we really coming up to the all star game already. Really? Yeah. That's coming up this weekend in Charlotte. They've got most of the teams played last night. That'll be their last game before the break. There's a couple of more games tonight. Good ones, though, blazers lit up the warriors won twenty nine one seven thanks to a fourth quarter rampage. That's all Portland outscore the champs thirty five to twelve Damian Lillard scored twenty nine he and seven other blazers reached double figures compared to just two for the dub, Steph curry and Kevin Durant. Each had thirty two wasn't quite enough Portland. Also added veteran Senator NS cater their roster. He was waived last week by the Knicks Kanter also been quartered by the Lakers. He actually signed an offer sheet with Portland four years ago, but never played for them because the thunder matched it and then bond up trading him to New York as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal back in two thousand seventeen. Okay. Mr history. That's it for that. He's averaged fourteen points and ten and a half rebounds for the Knicks this year that rebound total is tenth in the league. So you'd see why the Knicks would want to get rid of him because you know, otherwise, they wouldn't be able to run off a long losing streak. Like they have more about them in a second nuggets nip the kings one twenty to one eighteen Nikola Yokich tipped in the winter in the final second of that game. Paul Millsap had twenty five points and Isaiah Thomas made his season debut for the nuggets play thirteen minutes. Head. A couple of three pointers and wound up with eight points. It'll help them a lot down the down the stretch toward the playoffs. Deborah will stop the rockets. One twenty one to one eleven despite forty two from the beer James harden, running his thirty point game thirty point winning streak scoring streak rather to thirty one games. Now that ties him with Wilt Chamberlain for second. Longest all time Chamberlain also has the longest one at sixty five games in a row bucks past the Pacers one zero six ninety seven Milwaukee we'll go into the break with the best record in the league right behind them. The rap doors they with the wizards won twenty nine to one twenty Celtics left the pistons one eighteen to one ten in that one Brooklyn over Cleveland, one forty eight one thirty nine that one went triple overtime. If you believe that that was a while the seventy Sixers beat the Knicks one twenty six to one eleven that's eighteen straight losses for New York. Joel twenty six points, fourteen rebounds and one twenty five thousand dollar fine from the league for criticizing the referees.

"Heard of goes by the name of LeBron James LeBron Lakers taken on the nuggets in Denver. And this one was ugly early second quarter nuggets seven point lead. And look at your mom Murray guys fly by and then he's waving as they passed. Take a look at this. This is this is some shade here drew mammary which twenty. And not had a nine point lead late in the first half lake is kind of hanging around there down five. We gotta done. Lebron? No. We don't go in the other direction. Lonzo will put it in. He's gorgeous seven legs down eight at halftime. Then the third quarter. Denver just opens it up completely and LeBron James really struggling over four from three. That's no good. Lebron actually did not have a field goal on the entire second hand. And the other way, here's Yokich. He's not yo king. He had fourteen liquors down sixteen later Lakers. Still trailing by sixteen. The front is not a good pass. He's frustrated. They look really bad first time in four years. He goes tire half without a field goal. Fourth quarter, Lakers down eighteen points now kinda planet out LeBron and other bad pass going to work at the trae Lyles who will knock down to three from the corner when it's all sudden LeBron five of fifteen fourteen points. Lakers lose by thirty to their worst of the year. Still couldn't make. As much as we could stop to stuff. What it over? Broke. Oh before couldn't make enough shots. Yeah. Couldn't make shots as an understatement. Jalen rose because they missed thirty three's in the matchup against the nuggets. But something else was revealed. And you've mentioned this before that for the Lakers. It's difficult for them when they face a big man that can score inside and out. And how did you see that reveal distinction amongst quality big men in the league skill big man that could dribble pass shoot versus wheel men who set screens. Catch lobs and block shots.

Well, what are the three nuggets? Well, our theme today is NBA centers. And we'll start with a blast from the past the four fifty point games already this season from NBA players. Got me looking at the history of fifty point games in the NBA. Michael Jordan is second in NBA history with thirty one fifty point games. But the man who is I will Chamberlain had forty five fifty point games in one season. Hundred eighteen in his career, the still. Thanks for being useless as number two. Stan. Nikola yokich. The Denver Nuggets center is currently tagged with LeBron James for seventh in the NBA in assists at seven point seven a center has not been in the top ten in assists. Since Wilt Chamberlain was second in the league fifty one years ago. That joker wilt this stilts that and the number one nugget from STAN Van Gundy this week is I'm gonna go with one of my former guys here last year. Andre Drummond became only the second player in the past twenty six years to average fifteen points and fifteen rebounds in season. Now, he is on pace to become the first player to do it in back to back seasons. Since Moses Malone forty years ago.

Paul George of Oklahoma City Thunder sides with Jimmy Butler

"Reports have. Surfaced, George Sodano from ESPN is the main source of this. He says that the heat and the timber wolves had a deal done for Jimmy Butler. The two teams were exchanging medicals, which is the universal sports. Signed of a trade is done is. Now, let's make sure that this guy doesn't have a need. That's about to explode. They were exchanging the medicals and Tom tibidow called Pat Riley and asked for an additional piece to throw in at the last minute in the deal, Pat Riley called him in for and hung up. The phone on him. But as you've read reports all week for major awards and asking others. The two teams will certainly the heat hope to reengage with the timber wolves here before too long. My question is. How long till the nuggets get in there. How long till the nuggets decide you know, what let's throw our hat into the ring we have been through this as an organization before at some point this situation becomes untenable with a superstar that wants out the nuggets dealt with that with Carmelo Anthony. So. Could we potentially take advantage because my my guess is? That the nuggets have. You know, thrown at taxed maybe sent a Facebook message to the timber wolves. My guess is they haven't pushed very hard. Nothing more than just overtures and normal GM GM speak. Because one if you believe reports the nuggets label, Gary Harris is untouchable along with Nicole Yokich Jamal Murray, which I think is a nice thought, but. Let's be fair. At what those three guys are one of those guys does not have as high as ceiling as the other two, right? Like, I love Gary Harris. And I love what he's become but to label. Gary Harris untouchable is a little bit. Surprising. So there's that. But then there's also the idea of why in the world would the timber wolves wanted trae Jimmy Butler to the team that they just barely beat out for the postseason last year. And while that's still a valid question. If I were on, Minnesota's sports talk radio. I would be saying do not trade Jimmy Butler two the nuggets if you got to get rid of them get rid to the Eastern Conference. But again, how long? Can put up with questions like that. How long can Scott late in deal with being yelled at at practice by Jimmy Butler? How long can Karl Anthony towns Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler awkwardly tiptoe around each other in the timber wolves locker room? I would say
