LeBron leads Lakers to Finals
"Assists to close it out to make it to the finals. Did you know last year when they were injury red, and he didn't make it to the playoffs, that he had taken eight consecutive trips with Miami in Cleveland? That is just absolutely crazy to me, so he's going No surprises there when they were up 31. I think it was kind of a done deal. I couldn't envision Denver. Doing it again after they came down from came back from 31 deficits against the Jazz, and then the Clippers like there's just no chance with the star power. Oh, and just the weapons of the Lakers have for for Denver to overcome that absolutely great run for Yokich in Jamal Murray, But you know all things coming to an end and LeBron trying in his career fourth player to reach tense finals. In fact, only three franchises have actually made MBA finals. ATT over 10 Times. LeBron is his own franchise to begin with, right?
"yokich" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Bigger one. He's not a free agent until 2023 A matter of fact, Nikolay Yokich got paid. Jamal Murray is going to get paid at the conclusion of the season starting next year. This is what Nikolay Yokich had to say about Jamal Murray. His play and how important he is. I really truly believe that he's he's Ah, he's a superstar, and he's a really big part of this team. So he carry us today and Bunch of nights, So I'm really glad that he is my teammate. Yeah, well like I I think they got a whole lot more years of being teammates to come. Jamal Murray is 23. Years old. Jamal Murray. I will repeat it again to you. He is 23 years old. This man is going to get Ah $170 million coming his way over the next five years. Nikola Yokich is 25 years old. Okay? The Denver Nuggets aren't going No. Damn where If you want to think about age if you want to think about talent, and you want to really think about the fact that I don't want a case of Jamal Murray. I believe he can be better than what he is. If Nikola Yokich Khun main, saying his conditioning, I think the Denver Nuggets will be alone around for a long time. And I think that the Nuggets are more than likely to not have more staying power than maybe the team that they're facing off against right now with the Los Angeles Lakers. We know LeBron James went to L. A. This is his second year of his contract last year was basically a watches. He was gone with his his groin injury. LeBron James's is 35 years old and a couple of months in December. He's going to turn 36. The reality is LeBron can leave after next season. But why would he He's going to get paid $41 million. Maybe he feels that he can go ahead and start netting, you know? Ah, two years, you and maybe get 45. I have no idea. We have to see what the salary cap looks like. But obviously the Lakers in their immediate future. Over the next I'd say 2 to 5 years. Ah, lot of it is tied to. Obviously they're two superstars. You have LeBron James and you have Anthony Davis. At least in a case of LeBron, you know? At minimum. Minimum. You're going to get another year of LeBron. More than likely. Ah, you're probably going to get LeBron for $41 million in the last year of his contract. Let's see. Maybe he decides to re negotiate. That's been LeBron's M O. It's not like LeBron is is hurting for money. This is someone who's on his way to being a billionaire. And then you have Anthony Davis, the other superstar. Obviously ending His five year $127 million contract. That he saw on with the pelicans. He can opt out and be a free agent this year. And why wouldn't you? He could make $28 million next year. He consigned infer that, but if you can say Hey, give me 30 million over the next, you know, five years. Why wouldn't Anthony Davis do that? And we know how important Anthony Davis is to the squad. I told you every team. We've now moved from trios into duos, and Frank Vogel, head coach of the Lakers. He knows how important LeBron and 80 Arts of the future and now The combo of of LeBron James and Anthony Davis is just You know, the one I was not going to the other one is when they're both going at the same time. You know, we're we're near.
Los Angeles Clippers Complete Historic Collapse As Nuggets Take Stunning Game 7
"Well. This night is going to be remembered for a long time and there's a whole bunch of different reasons why people are gonNA remember it. The laker fans have their reasons. the clippers fans have their reasons. The nuggets fans have their reasons I think I just clip. Yeah they're there It's it's rough right now. I mean I I I think any team that had duplex have experienced. What just there? That is a devastating blow, but I think I just watched. McMahon I'll see if you agree. was. An Absolute Total grade a choke. Oh, not just. All much in the three one aspect I mean that jokes who actually in the three one aspect especially in the blowing double figure leads in the last three games while choke in that even setting that aside, I'm just talking about the actual performance of night. Oh, what it only took him seven minutes in the fourth quarter to get a bucket. Yeah. Okay. We're of P. turnovers than frequent hold on hold your fire is just for a second dinner decided the backboard hold your fire for a sector. That would i. I think what I saw was that was a historic choke job and combined with a spectacular game seven performance by the nuggets or. Spectacular Three game comeback by the neck and look. 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. Warden CJ mccollum absolutely deserved to just fire away because you got Paul George and Patrick Beverley acting like they're on some frigging dynasty. They've never sniffed the conference files. Why are they act like there's some you know I mean come on now. So yes, I. I'll be honest I thoroughly enjoyed the collapse and the troll jobs that came along with it.

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.

NBA playoffs roundup
"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
What should we make of all these NBA referee complaints?
"What did you make of the whole? We got filed. We won the NBA championship last year. The the rockets complaints that they the officials of not treated them fairly. Everybody feels at some point that the reps start treating them fairly. And it's not really a question about fairness referees are not there to try to enforce there to try to enforce the rules. To do it as accurately and even handedly as humanly possible in a game in which the speed at lettuce schism of the participants makes it very very difficult in real time and fifty times more difficult in the aftermath because we watch it all and HD, and we are sit and scrutinize, and you know, blow it up to the last little pixel, and it's just it, you know, it's a tough job for the rest, regardless. It has made topper by how much one players are definitely trying to trick the refs bait them that happens and to how much they are. Then, you know, second guests in the aftermath. So in the case of warriors rockets, my basic point is this. I think there were some this calls against harden. I think that the league in their last minute report was correct in that the Draymond green call that they were most upset over at least at the end because it affected the last couple of second. The last minute of the game. They was a correct non call. And then James harden is doing things on his jump shot to make it, you know, it's a to draw contacts, and that's making it tough on the rest of call it accurately. Our back. You're on the show breaking it down. Howard, denver. I mean Yokich is been you know, there's all the superlatives awesome. And Denver wins that series. How do you expect that Denver Portland series to play out how competitive series, you think it's going to be it could go the distance very easily several of these semi final series? Actually, if you go the distance. In fact, I think there's a chance for all four of them. I it's a really good second round Portland wasn't supposed to be here necessarily after losing late in the season. Yes, they were higher seed, but a lot of people saw. In fact, I think like ESPN's pundits like nineteen out of twenty or something had the under upsetting the blazers and Denver, you know, look at the second. Yes. Of course, they're supposed to to advance. But a lot of people thought again, the Spurs, obviously, the more seasons team and veteran team and the nuggets had no experience whatsoever. Coming into this postseason. So they're both here is is cool. And it's refreshing. And it's interesting, and they're they're both just trying to kind of, you know, figure out you know, how how far they can push. It. Just fantastic. He's been great in the postseason a little bit less consistency from Jamal Murray minutes. Young cast Portland actually has the advantage in terms of experience because Lillard McCollum and a lot of their role guys are guys who have been in a bunch of postseason battles. And so, you know, I absolute think especially on you know, you get Dame hot one night. They they can they can win a game Denver. They can they can make this a series
Damian Lillard: Blazers Talked to Refs 'Probably More Than We Needed' in Game 1
"Meantime, there was another game last night nuggets and blazers Denver taking game one from Portland. One Twenty-one one thirteen thirty seven four Nicola Yokich. He also had nine rebounds said coach Mike Malone says the kid just goes out and plays. You never use fatigue as an excuse for naval use any that. We're a no excuse team. And I think Nicole is a great example of the now you guys you're talking are your g about the officiating and the players really getting into it and GM's getting into here was Damian Lillard. He admits they were a bit too chirpy with the officials. Maybe we need to know not say as much, but I mean, anytime you see guys wanted that bed. You don't you don't say stuff. Sometimes I think, you know, we might have had a little bit too much that tonight. So I guess they like the way the guy did not see this game. I imagined that it like the way it was officiated Jamal Murray had twenty three points of Denver, the one oh

"yokich" Discussed on The Starters
"Trae who do you have got Yokich? I had him beat this morning. But then I was looking through all of these so-called numbers. And it was trying to keep things consistent so yoga just played fourteen more games than Embiid that really matters big games. Played guy when it comes to. Like, the first thing is quality Yokich. Embiid are the top two centers in the league this year. Like Rudy go bears. Played seventy eight games. I'm not putting him on my first team because he played a game extra over Nicole Yokich, but the quality of Yokich and beat sets them apart centers. And then I think that they're so close together for how important they are to their team that Yokich being out there for fourteen more games means quite a bit to me is this is so funny. I did the exact same thing this morning. I had him beat as my first team. And then I sort of was like, you know, it's like, okay. It's it's tough between the two I you said it to earlier tests. Like, I do believe I always the better player, but he's more dominant player if that makes sense between the two. Oh, yeah. Can beat. It's definitely better. But yeah. And then I did sort of caught me by surprise the games played. And I was like that's a decent chunk the seventy seven for Yokich right now as of Friday and then to sixty three two and beat. So I did bump I got Yokich kitchen there. They played down the first they play different 'em beats more of a sort of big bully guy. I to get down and use his body, whereas Yokich is more finesse. I mean, he's averaging seven and a half assists, again leaning it up points per game was twenty but he's still shooting fifty one percents on the field, eleven rebounds. But, but I was I mean, I know we get a lot of assistants like he's not that far away from averaging adult double himself. I mean, he probably won't ever get it in his career. But I mean, just like emptied schools more points, but he just gets the ball, and he likes shoot more than he likes to get inside more than York, but Yokich is way more happy to facilitate when needed like look at them beads game versus the bucks last night. Even a monster game. Triple double Janas even more impressive game in a weird way. But like looking at me shots and beat feed them feed them feed them. I mean, he's either going to get to the line or he's going score. Four and yet not that you're not ever going to really see that from a yoga. He's happy to get the bowl. And then just kick it out and keep it moving and he stills putting up incredible numbers and also the nuggets season. I mean, again, there are only three wins more than Philadelphia. So that's taught but the nuggets of improved so much that I gave the not Yokich is well for that. Who did you go with first team center Nikolay? Okay. Yeah. Okay. So we all did in the end. Well, I think Yokich has had a very weird season when you actually look at it splits, and you go back and remember like his months like he started finding October K great. Then he had a very very weird November. Like that was a down month. He scored like fourteen a game sad guy. Yeah. There's all sort of depressed that we had that little weird stretch where he was like. Yeah. What are you doing out there for like three or four games? Then he killed it killed it, December January February, and he sort of now sort of as his team has struggled a little bit yet has sort of fallen off a little bit here in March and now into April. So it's just a weird sort of weird little up and down ear for Yokich, but overall pretty dominant. Okay. So second team a lot of the guys we've said here. The the two guards everybody has either Lillard or curry. So the three of us tacitly and myself, we have Lillard there. Trae had him on the first team. That's a no brainer yet. Yeah..

"Free throw shooter in getting to the line in absolute ton. And also, I think Embiid has a lot of room to grow offensively. I mean, he takes a lot of threes. I think he can make more of them than he has. And if he can or turn down his turnovers tone down turnovers like that would be a huge improvement off a guy who's already very efficient, very dominant. And I also think that my this is just my instinct that part of what was a loose tiebreaker for me is that the idea of the affirmative case that I think three or four months. Now, I could feel more comfortable about where I have in bead maybe than yoga yoga's could have a great playoffs. Do I'm not for closing on that possibility. But if I were to guess who I'm going to feel better about after this playoff run. I'm gonna go with Embiid over over yoga, and that's part of what made decision so you had Yokich to and towns three I had towns four I had Yokich. I had him below go bear did defense. Offense thing is part of it. But Yokich, so I think we, and I mean, we sports media should start talking about Yokich is one of the best offensive players in the league. There's a lot of the forest center type stuff with yoga. I don't think we should do that very much anymore. I mean, he's fifth in offense of RPM. He's high in PI PM. He's the Lynch pin of one of the best offenses in the league. And this isn't a new thing. Denver there eighty nine percentile offensive rating when he's on the four this year they were ninety six percentile last year and ninety eight percents out of the year before he is their best offensive player. And makes a lot of what they do work you and I both love Jamal Murray. But Yokich is a big part of why joe-marie has been so successful. Yeah. And if you really gonna look at the rest of their offense when they have guys who are capable. But I mean, they don't have another guy on this offense that would get even remotely serious all-star consideration besides him. And I mean, the the eleven point six assists per one hundred possessions, the second highest among centers is Marcus oil at seven point one and a yoga is easily the best passing center of all time. Like, there's the statistics are so much higher that no one else even as close to an argument what imports and beyond that of their twenty two players in the league. They have a USA trait over twenty nine right now and it played a significant portion of the season Yokich just third and assist ratio behind west Perkin trae young that list includes a lot of guys with the ball in their hands a lot. He's really facilitating Denver's offense. Yeah. And he has also brought his usage up in past years. I mean, I do think if you put someone on him in the post is a real good post of enter I think he could be he could be stopped as far as it is individual offense. You can know get him the ball on the perimeter. He can run pick and roll with. And his hands. He can come off screens. I mean there there are it's very difficult to shut him down. Even if he's not a dominant one on one player where you just are just gonna dump it to the post this guy to give a bucket. I hit towns above him for a couple of reasons, I think one towns to me as a little bit more defensive potential, and where's Yokich? I think you could make the argument that yoga Cha's been better than him in the regular season defensively. But I do think that towns it is less exploited people and with look better in the playoffs. So there will never gonna find out the answer that 'cause the wolves are are just one of the more hopeless franchises in the NBA. Unfortunately, Antic because of towns miserable first month all the Butler drama like what he's done since. Then and what he's in the second half of the season. I mean, it's just absence ever to thirty one. Would you want his all star break post all-star break stats only? I pulled him. Yeah. Thirty points, fourteen and a half rebounds sixty five percent shooting on thirty four percent usage. Forty six percent. From three percent usage. Thirty four coal, man. Man and sixty five.

Free throw form is up and in. Joker against Golden State only had four rebounds, a run of eight straight games with ten or more rebounds ended. I'd also equalled the season low form in rebounds with four. Mccaslin. Only good things happen when you put continuous pressure on a diva exactly and Yoka tried here at the free throw line, is example of that. He makes both the free throws.

"I have Davis. Why think the interesting question is if you put Davis on first team where I think Yokich Embiid is an interesting debate. I would right now pencil Yokich over Embiid. But I think that's an interesting debate. I would too in. I had him beat as an MVP candidate. I just don't love the way that team's been playing. I think Embiid beat the if you're going to put Yokich over him bead part of the reason is Embiid is not as good enough player as as maybe the I test suggests in some ways people think he is like he's below thirty percent from three at the forty nine percent. Overall, his assistant turnover issue after interest, which was his big sort of blindspot last year. Whatever it started off strong is now down to one to one again. Like he's like Yokich what Yokich is doing offensively. I just can't be stressing. It's the best passing season by big, man. He's every more assistant. Lebron gets the best. Probably absolutely insane. A big man has Bill Walton didn't do this sa- bonus in the NBA at least didn't do this. There's just never been a big man cage. G who is sort of like not even he was like more of a cagey and unless of a traditional big man like he never pass like no one did this effort. He's averaging seven and a half. Assists the game. It's ridiculous with the Embiid. I like that is I like that is at ten free throws again. Yeah. He he's a very good offensive player. I just think Yokich is a is a offensive player a ad. I don't even though Embiid getting the, you know, he's twenty seven and thirteen but I don't like that. He's not even shooting. Fifty percent has that possible. Well, if you ask them, you might you might tell you about how he has to be a floorspace doesn't like to do that..

They go around the horn back over to Monte Moore says one on one with rivers lobs it on the elbow to Yokich Yokich guarded by cappella dribbles with the left hand picked it up.

He's got one foot in the paint shorter player on them spin move hook shot is up in Tucker, tried to flop for a charge didn't get the whistle. Denver back in the lead by five. And James harden, has it across the timeline guarded there by Maliki Beasley throws it over Tucker back over to harden harden, lobs it in the paint over the Capella throws at the opposite corner to Austin rivers. He'll take a contested three batch shot. He knocked at home some announcing that Trey Lyles back for no apparent reason and gave him this basic shooting yoga, Chaz it on a handoff over to launch O'Hare Gomez. Chases Yokich out of the way. The whistle. Offensive foul on the colour Yokich trying to get position on James harden. Joker hates that. Call. Yeah. Because it's not a fantastic. Alvin James harden been trying to do this? He knows he's overmatched. And so he's trying to block these out come on. That's terrible. Outside official Carl lanes it on that one pardon has it to the right side of the midcourt circle. Throws it over PJ Tucker cutter. Gives him a pig. Trickles down to the baseline off to a cutting player Cabello the paint, and he's fouled by one show. Here Gomez known for a steel. A physical screens be set out here. That one by Tucker looked like a football for sure. And he does that he does that for James harden to force a switch to a guy that wants to deal with more than whoever his initial defender is so we're gonna see that a lot here tonight. Jamal Murray comes back in for Denver. Cappella lobs in the corner over to James harden. Eight on the clock guarded by McMullan leak. Beasley takes a top three mystic rebound down to watch a quick outlet pass Murray in the frontcourt, veasley hazards.

But then a foul called on Denver on the rebound. And that'll be free throws coming up again here for the Houston Rockets. And. James harden was able to lob this pass over the top to Clint cappella, and that's just the past the nuggets can't allow to get right? Catches it.

"Eight six zero zero four six you could also hit us up on Twitter. I am at gingerly tweets wheels. Is that wheels thirteen hundred and the station can be found both on Facebook and Twitter at Xtra sports thirteen hundred coming up on today's show. Of course, we'll be all over the Broncos coaching search Chuck Pagano interviewed yesterday. We'll give you the scuttle. But as far as how that went Zack Taylor. The Rams quarterback coaches interviewing today. So we'll tell you a little bit more about Zack Taylor, and whether he's actually a legitimate candidate for the head coaching gig with the Denver Broncos. Reuben foster has had hit the charges against him dropped why that doesn't vindicate the Redskins for what they did. And Nick Sabin. Never tex. Never texts. So stay tuned for that. By the way, the Broncos are currently in the air on their way to California. They're going to him Ellie's cliff cliff says. Classes sitting next to him. I'm probably probably because he said taking off now and that was like ten minutes ago or is standing at the window waving by this. You. So yeah, we'll get into that in a little bit. I wanted to talk a little bit about the app says the losses keep mounting for them. And that's what I was going to start the show with and then the first returns for the NBA all star voting came out. And I said now this is where I want to start. So Nicola Yokich is seven in the Western Conference front court voting. It is LeBron Luca Danni. Kevin durant? Anthony davis. Paul George, Stephen Adams, Nicole Yokich, see all this time. I thought Nicole Yokich was like the backup kicker for the Broncos and see and I'm gonna get into it here. Yeah. You're not far off. He's barely edging out. Cal coups Ma and Derrick rose. Yes. Derrick rose has gotten nearly half a million more votes. And DeMarcus cousins who has yet to step on an NBA floor. This season is within one hundred thousand votes of Nicole Yokich. And of course, I could sit here like we do many a time when it comes to hall of fame snobs and all star snobs, and I could see here and tell you about how Nicole Yokich has more assists than every front court player in the Western Conference and more cysts than all, but two of the leading vote getters on the guard side or that he has more rebounds than all. But two of the guys he's getting outvoted by or as more blocks steals, assists, rebounds, shoots a higher percentage than Luca Danni who showed up in the NBA like five seconds ago. And of course, I could tell you that the nuggets are currently leading the NBA's Western Conference above LeBron above the warriors above the thunder. Above everybody in the Western Conference. And that Nicole Yokich is the big reason why. But it's NBA all star voting Yokich is a Denver nugget it. This is not surprising like when I first side. I said. Why can't tell you what I said because we're on terrestrial radio. This is a joke. That's that's what I was something to that effect. Well, it's fitting because because he's nicknamed the joke. No, it's fitting, it is is quite fitting. But you know, what the after I thought after my initial like. Dang it. Reality set in. And I'm like, I'm not I'm not surprised Nicole Yokich is not on Twitter. He's not rumored to be going to New York or LA. He doesn't play for one of the three teams that ESPN TNT decide to show on a weekly basis. So the average, and I mean like average in every sense of the word NBA fan doesn't know who Nicole Yokich is still and here and here in Denver and surrounding community. That seems ridiculous right? This is going on three years now of Nicole Yokich is a really special player. But it takes more than that to reach the average MBA fan. Who are the people that watch whatever team LeBron and the warriors and the Celtics. And then you factor in locally because that's the other part. He's being outvoted by two Oklahoma City thunder players, I do see Oklahoma City on ESPN TNT more than the nuggets. But they're not on it all the time. They're not on it as much as the warriors and Lakers, and rockets and everything like that. So. What is the explanation for why to Oklahoma City thunder players three if you include Westbrook? But he's on the guard side are getting more votes than Nicole Yokich. Well. It's January was third. Thank you wheels. It's January third. Bronco's country doesn't emerge from its cocoon till February and even then they go right back in about a month before the draft. So you look at Oklahoma City. And in Oklahoma City. All they have is the thunder and dirt dirt and the Oklahoma City thunder that that's all Oklahoma City has they have nothing better to do than the vote for Stephen Adams and to also make promoting horse tripping or bear wrestling events. Illegal. And that is a real thing. You can Google it fewer in Oklahoma. You may not promote a horse tripping event. It is against the law. I love the NBA. I love it. I'm basketball guy. I love watching the NBA, and it's not just the nuggets it's everybody. And I've said this before I love watching LeBron go against the warriors. So I'm not chastising people who enjoy watching that would I'm saying is as much as I defy with NBA fans because I am a fan. Of the NBA in general, not just the Denver Nuggets. But NBA fans and a lot of ways. Are the people represent the people that we? Loathe. The most. Are you know, their kids not that we load kids, but they're a lot of them are kids. So there, you know, they don't have they don't go seek out their own opinions. They get it from I take or Twitter, whatever their narrow focused. So they don't spend a lot of time watching a basketball game because a lot and we talked about this when. Making the comparison of Yokich and Yoenis onto Toco Janas onto Toco plays in Milwaukee. Like, why is Janas and Janas is leading the NBA leading the Eastern Conference in votes. Should be the same right? Nicole Yokich leads in the west. And I grant that LeBron and some warriors trumpet, but if onto Takubo is leading the east Nicola yoke, it should be much higher in the west because the Milwaukee Bucks are obviously the number one team in the NBA right now in terms of record and Yoenis is getting Jaanus. The biggest reason why and he's getting a little bump from that. But why not why doesn't that translate to Nicole Yokich because and many of you are right on this. Because you have to watch a full basketball game to appreciate what Nicole Yokich does. He's not going to make. Although I do give Scott van pelt a lot of credit. I think that he does white to show Nicole Yokich highlights, but the the general sportscenter top ten is not going to include Nicoli Yokich is play because he doesn't dunk over anybody. Doesn't he's not a impactful shot blocker. He balks his fair share of shots. But he's seven foot three. He's not a throw it into the first row Jaanus. You can watch an a ten second clip right dunks on a dude. Wow. Jaanus is awesome. And I'm not downgrading Jaanus. I'm just saying the typical NBA fan can appreciate Yanni's and knows about Yoenis even though he plays a Milwaukee. Because they can see him in ten second clips, and they can with the co Yokich, and I hate that about the NBA. So. I've decided that. Most of you. I'm preaching to the choir. I understand that many of you know, Nicole Ioka is you know, how good he is. And hopefully this while you're doing whatever you're doing on add on the internet. Maybe go over to MBA dot com and click vote on Nicole yoga. Few times. And if you're going to a nugget game. That would be a great time wifi is spectacular in the Pepsi center. I hear. Punchy a punch up a few votes at halftime for Nicole Yokich. But for those who may be tuning in because you know, we're we're transplant city. Right. People are coming in coming in and out all the time. Maybe you don't know about Nicole Yokich and how great he is. So I'm going to devote not all the time. Just a little bit of time. I to a new mini segment. It's going to be devoted to how much Nicoli Yokich is a wonderful. Majestic unicorn who not only deserves to be an all star game. But deserves a start. The all star game. And I'm tentatively calling it. Let me tell you a Yokich. I work on the name. If if we don't like it. I appreciate your feedback on that. But let me tell you Yokich. And today's let me tell you Yokich I'm going to set it up like a joke because it's Yokich. Here's the setup Nicola Yokich has nineteen triple doubles since two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen. Do you know how many every other MBA center, including Stephen Adams, whose Lee leading Nicole Ioka Jim voting? Do you know how many all of the rest have in that time? Twenty two q the laugh track, and I'll get this is breaking news. So I haven't had time to put the audio in and all that kind of stuff. So we'll get the laugh track going, and we'll do this because he needs to know they will need to get the crickets going is more like it. Based on that first one. He has nineteen triple doubles since two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen in the rest of the NBA centers have twenty two k. Where's the joke? Well, it's not supposed to be Joe. Yeah. I wouldn't you know, it's it's a higher. It's a higher level of comedy. I don't expect you to get it on the first try. We'll we'll work on it. So vote for Nicole Yokich while you're at it vote for Gabriel Landis Gog because he didn't get in to the all star game yet. He's up for that. Final vote. In last man in is that what they? Philippe Forsberg's in it tapes. Gabriel Landis Gog. So like, I know that your time is valuable and you can't do a ton of stuff.
