"In the league. We're not talking about Zion Williamson. Just 68 burly. I'm talking about a Rudy Go bare seven ft. Tight. We're talking about a 63 £200 shooting Guard point guard. It's giving you 11 rebounds a night. And this season at age 32 is doing the exact same thing. 22 points. 11.5 assists, also leading the MBA and assist And giving you 11.6 rebounds a night. We're talking four out of the last five seasons. Russell Westbrook has averaged a triple double the night Every time you punch your ticket to watch Russell Westbrook play, you are going to get 25 points, double digit rebounds, double digit assists. You can't lock in that kind of production with too many other players, not just in the modern MBA, but Any span of NBA history. You just can't I wonder if we had become so infatuated with the rings culture and what you do in the postseason and how you measure up from a championship perspective. That we just can't simply appreciate the greatness, which is Russell Westbrook. The greatness is a guy who goes out there and competes at a really high level and does something that no other player in the history of the MBA is done. Is what we're seeing right now from Russell Westbrook. I don't know if it's his attitude or his personality. Which I get, which rubs people the wrong way. It was one Syriza against the Utah Jazz a couple of years ago. Russell Seymour interesting and arguing with the crowd than he did going out and hoping. Over the time where the kid touched him, and then he kind of went off on the kid. Mean Russell's motor is always running hot. Well, you gotta dial Russell back sometimes, but part of that aggression. Part of that anger is what fuels him to be the amazing basketball player that we get the opportunity to watch. Maybe it's the way the Russell Westbrook dresses. He certainly doesn't have conventional fashion sense. He's not Michael Jordan with the button downs and the Blazers and the perfectly tailored pants and the wings have shoes. Thanks a lot. See you. Sometimes I don't know what Russell's were. I don't know what designer it is or what His fashion sense is, But that's Russ. That's him. That's his personality. That's that dog. Really good friends with a former NFL player, and he talks to me all the time about how the dog mentality is something that you can't teach. The coaches can inserted in you Other players can't do that for you. It's something that either you're born with. Are you aren't born with You either have that mentality to go out there and be a killer quote unquote. Or you don't have it. Russell has it. If you had to create a basketball player mentality. You would create Russell Westbrook. You know how a lot of times people say that this new generation so buddy Buddy, and now they hate the DAP in guys up and they want guys to go at each other. It's not Russ. I want to spend the first part of this show, appreciating one of the greatest accomplishment in the history of the MBA. Well Russell Westbrook at age 32. At an age in which Iverson started to decline, an age in which Dwayne Wade started to decline. At 32 years old is averaging 22 points. 11.6 rebounds 11.5.

Talk some sense. You got the final word here. Max is wrong. You talking about jimmy garoppolo being their guy. I mean jimmy garoppolo outside of the thousand nine thousand. Nine season hasn't had a stretch of games more than five days played ever in his career. So i don't know that you can depend on jimmy garoppolo to be there. The best ability is availability.

Chris canty europe blue donncha injected with a flagrant to last night doesn't count towards us fifteen total tax season. What did you make it. That one on context other luke. Dodges is out of pocket for doing that. I mean that's a violation. I don't care what sport it is. There's a code amongst players in clearly. Luca violated it right there. And i didn't care too much for his commentary after the game when he talked about. He didn't know what he did. It looked pretty intentional. Luca dot says was doing a common sex in that moment. I'm just saying cressner. Having max after dropping to the knicks admitted he's dealing with a left hand issue. How concerning is this for the clippers. That'd be concerned are the lakers handling it with lebron. Better sit out. Let them get better or the clippers handling it with kawhi better know having played through a new. Itty time will tell. But i'll tell you this. Why expect to show up in the playoffs as he does every year. One bad game seven otherwise an all time. Great playoff performer elevates under pressure. Paul george has not to me. It's still about that. That man needs his robin to step up in these playoffs. If he does the clippers can get out of the west. If he doesn't they can't more. Nba the league signed david griffin fifty k. For detrimental comments public criticism of officiating. The decision came two days after the pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations spoke out strongly about his concerns over the amount of contact referees allowing new orleans for zion williamson to endure williamson currently out indefinitely with a fractured left index finger. Here's griffin friday. I'm really frustrated. Because this was avoidable the we told the nba through every means available to us that the way they were officiating. Zion was going to get him injured. and quite frankly he's injured now. Because of the open season that there's been on zion williamson in the. He has been absolutely mauled in a regular basis to the point that other players have said to him. I'm going to keep doing this to you because they don't call it. So there's more violence encouraged in the paint against zion williamson than any player. I've seen since shack. It was agreed gis in horrific then in the same is true now again that was griffin on friday and bay kendrick perkins back on your screen perk. I truly believe in mentor ship. So i understand you have a message for zion. Place go ahead. Well i neil dress david griffin okay. And i'm interested in my new orleans voice. God blesses did it because he don't know no better and this is a damn shame. This is the reason that guys around the old school guys. Call our league because a week commentary and we comments like that david griffin said now desire. I believe zionism future superstar believe. Zion is the face of the nba. But this is was on your on half the realize people are not going to move out of his way. This is a grown man. You know what happened. When they start thousand shack hall side more dominant he got meaner. He started getting more offense fouls he started putting the elbowing people in next to move out of the way. He's got busy got main. That's what zairean has to do. When he's he's already dominated he has to give more dominant. Now you gotta add a look faisal that ramp up on across the seas they have in new orleans and get more juice former have afraid of data by there needs to be said not that baloney david griffin just came up as.

"He's going to join us coming up in our number four. Adam is a huge bears fan. Absolutely huge Bears fan and he has been overwhelmed with optimism and cheer. And this is rare commodities for bears fans after the Justin Fields draft pick A couple of weeks ago. So we're gonna talk about that with Adam. His sky has opened up. His life has changed. The Bears have it exciting quarterback prospect. Plus, there's a Bears fan. I'm sure he has a proper amount of Packers distaste. And so we'll talk to Adam about the Roger situation as well. So that should be a lot of fun. Adam rank joining us in our number four this morning. Elsewhere this hour wasn't a rat. Or a raccoon, a bizarre weekend and night for the Mets that may have saved their season. Nixon Clippers is well yesterday as New York continues to impress and the Clippers might give us a swoon warning here before the playoffs begin in about a week from now regular season of the NBA wraps up One week from yesterday. Also in the NFL. All eyes are on Green Bay as I mentioned and the league might be bracing for Rogers to be traded will tell you how we can read those tea leaves Bryce Ng D Shambo, the scientist. Had a wild weekend where he thought he had missed the cut flew home on a flight only to realize upon landing crap. I made the cut, really? And DK Metcalf, who was perhaps the strongest wide receiver in the NFL, just went out with sprinters and tried his hand of the 100. We'll tell you how he did all of that coming up this morning and Diabolical situation unfolding with Schwartz on Twitter, where apparently He's getting some heat from other corners of the sports media world, and it's not even us. Whoa all of that. This morning here on the show, she could hit me up on the phones at 855 to 1 to four, CBS. It's 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 or on Twitter hit us up a swell DEA on CBS. You can follow me and tweet at me. They're DEA on CBS, but I want to begin. With Zion Williamson. Injures his hand and is now done for the season. More than likely they have said he's out indefinitely indefinitely is a problem for a team scuffling even to make the playoffs. So more than likely if the pelicans end up clinching a playoff spot. They will not have Zion four that run David Griffin, his GM was extremely critical of the NFL. His press conference about this via zoom on Friday. Saying that the NFL the NBA rather officiating has not done Zion any favors that the NBA officiating has allowed harder fouls against Sion than anybody else in the NBA. That what he's witnessing with his eye on night in night out is akin to what happened with shack were officials. Refs allowed everybody to take their hacks at shack. And really bludgeon him because he was so much bigger and stronger than everybody and that if you could cap call a foul every play, you should call a foul on every play, but that Zion does not get the benefit of the whistle. So we asked this question this morning. As the NBA will have a post season without his ion. Because either the pelicans are not gonna make it or they are and they're gonna do it without him. Should the MBA take blame in house Ion got insured. It is where we begin your cold open over a period of time. It's a striking injury and it's a force the blunt force injury so he was being beaten. On the hand over and over and over again. So for me to tell you one time, I don't think I can do that. I don't think he knows one time, so it's been ongoing. Throughout the year. I've had multiple conversations with multiple individuals that run the officials. Individuals that run basketball operations we've sent in film. So throughout the year it's been an ongoing situation coach. His actually had his staff, sending in clips as well. In an effort to Protect Zion throughout this time, eh? So it's been an ongoing effort and again. I want to be clear will and I appreciate the question. We failed. We we did not protect him. Appropriately. We did not make the message clear enough because this was avoidable. I.

"To finish this with like a finger roll over somebody and he just slams it you're like oh oh that's right. This is ion types of things and then his second jump would be impressive for guard. Let alone somebody. Who's two hundred and eighty four hundred eight five pounds. I mean the second the second jump. Andrew is such a key term in nba scouting pilots. Explain what the second jump is. Because when i watched zion second jump. It's jump that anybody would be lucky to have as their first job absolutely so. Let's say he puts his shot up. And i'll use really go bear because they've had some good battles before rudy. Gobert goes up to block his show rudy blocks it or changes the shot of the rim when tsai on grabs the ball the second time his jump to get back up and get his second layup he's gonna get up quicker than rudy can reset. He's going to get a quicker than most. Nba guys can reset but his ability to get his own rebound and go back up so quickly so the other guy may be still on the floor is what makes him so special. Yeah i kind of want our listeners. Right now to like try to jump one time and then try to jump again and then again and just see how exhausted you get and zion is doing and what. You're explaining years that as everybody else gets tired. This dude seems to defy physics and this sort of physics equation around zion. I mean the concern from on. I think was that it was unsustainable. But the fact that he is doing this and seemingly andrew not really showing signs of the injury that was playing him last year. What does that tell us about. Zion right now house. The injury situation playing into any of us my favorite zion stat of the year. So far is thirty. Two point eight minutes per game. I think that might be the most important no matter what else. He does the rest of the year. I think that's the most important stat. So far for him is the fact that he hasn't had any restrictions. He's been healthy this year. And i think that when when you look back on this that's going to be the biggest thing because when you're that big and you're generating that much torque the maintenance that they are taking with him. The preventative maintenance goes a long way. Well part of that maintenance andrew that seems to get inordinate amount of attention is ions weight and as he continues to develop as he continues to handle the ball more. How does his weight and conditioning. All factor in it was such a big thing in new orleans that there was this rumor going around that zion williamson or chicken fingers at commander's palace one of these famous new orleans restaurants where you can get whatever you want. Whatever kind of creole food you want. It was it. Was that big of a rumor. People have been obsessed with this since he got one of my biggest stories at the newspaper before i started working at. Espn was a question from like an answer from zion telling him hey guys. I didn't have chicken fingers at commander's palace. They were for my little brother. That did almost as good as any other story. That's how obsessed people in general have been about zion's eating habits. His weight is conditioning but the conditioning now is going to be a key. How much point guard he can play. Stan van gundy has mentioned this so far. They love his conditioning. If they're gonna play him point guard. More point guard. Level conditioning in the nba is a little bit different than regular nba conditioning. And that's something. That's i on will still need to work on. If the pels wanna make points. I on a thing even more so deniability has so if a three hundred pound do like zion can basically gummy bear bounce like this here there everywhere over it over again. Where are we in terms of the trajectory of his potential as an nba player. You i remember talking to a few people before his his rookie year started and they mentioned he's going to have to make a lebron james level type of commitment to maintaining his body in order to continue on his trajectory. And if he does that. I could see him being a future. Mvp being the league team to a championship. And go from there are coming up. How to build the team.

But since i did it take another look at it here. That's go bear. He does get called for over the bag. Zion would make too so the pelicans of a three point lead in. Here's the final shot.

Welcome to the club will well as you said. We've been seeing zion. Start to take over some games on offense attack more from the perimeter and become a better passer and he's still just twenty years old. What's the next evolution of zion williamson game. Just a jump shot. We've seen him make some real progression in particular at the free. Throw line him. A coach forever. Incident done a of work at the free throw line kind of tightening up some of his mechanics fixing his shooting motion. We've seen before where guys get more comfortable at the free throw line allows you to extend that to your jump. Shot in the way you're shooting three pointers so now i think he's more comfortable taking that outside shot another three yes that read back to back in the us. The same work tonight. That i did last night. The fluidity is different with that release. He's not catching it and hesitating. He's not catching it daft. He's catching it and let it go on other defensively. I got to see him. Continue to grow. We've got us in certain moments. Be able to trust them at the five and see him switched out on the perimeter and hold his own get big rebounds when they need it and then you know just big picture. Just be a leader minutes. Yeah i took that personal. So i could just play tough defense on guard and give my teammates going in the first quarter. So is i know whatever energy we can get we need. We need to run also wins. Be either his teammates can go to that. They can trust when they need them. That comes with age but also is this him kinda believing in himself and knowing he can do that even if he surrounded by guys that are owed him. We saw the potential for this. Pelicans team with the comeback win over the celtics on sunday. What kind of upside do you think they have for this season. We've seen it can be offensively j. You were tied for the third offense in the league. I think it says a lot about what brandon ingram is done. Elevate their games. The big question is how far can we go is going to be dependent on their defense. They've been so bad and so up and down and they have these games where they give up twenty three twenty five three pointers. I mean i don't care how good you are offense. If you're giving up that many easy buckets that other teams. You're gonna have a hard time. They have the potential to be really good. I think anything other than a plan game. This year is going to be a big disappointment. They got to step up defensively. They gotta get better. They gotta be more demanding of each other and he's got get tougher on that end but we've seen once they kind of buy in on that end. They've got offense to carry them wherever they need to. We'll thanks so much for joining us tonight. Hope you continue to enjoy coaster of pelicans season hopefully they can keep my heart intact. We don't overtime games every other night.

Chris Broussard: LeBron is right, KD, Warriors Big 3 were better than Nets
"Asked about playing in next week's free for the first time on thursday. Lebron james pump the brakes on calling it. An unprecedented collection of talent reminding reporters quote. We forgot about katie. Stephan play. already. I mean there you go there you go right there of course lost back to back finals to the warriors big three that he referenced right then i first sard is back joining us. I don't think so chris. Do you agree with the brown hair. Well i i'm guessing that skip sensors and alterior motive. Oh i won't go there. I'll be interested in seeing what he says. But i'm going with the golden state guys staff clay and and i've got five reasons why number one the pieces fit together better when those three katie went to golden state. We had no questions about whether or not it was going to work because none of the guys are ball dominant. None of them needed the ball in their hands. A lot to be effective and give you twenty plus points. Obviously james harden and car. We have been bald dominant dribble it a lot which can make it more difficult to fit together now. They're fitting together great offensively but theoretically there games are a lot more ball dominant. Golden state guys to golden state was better defensively. And i'm not just talking about draymond green. Who's not even part of this conversation. You add katie. Who was younger and i. I'm sure it was a better defender at that point. Then he can be at this point a little older often an achilles injury and then klay thompson was a legitimately very good defender. He made an all nba. Defensive team steph obviously is in the category of harden and kyrie. None of them are really great defenders. The third thing better shooters as well as hard and kyrie shoe. And they are great shooters steph. Curry is the best shooter in nba history. So good that he changed the game. He literally changed the way the nba is played because he's such a great shooter and clay is arguably arguably the second greatest shooter of all time again that enables you to fit better together and certainly for today's game the better shooters i mean. That's a huge thing. You have fourth no drama. They they they were low maintenance guys in golden state k. d. had a little drama but for the most part that's a low maintenance group in brooklyn i i love his game but i gotta worry about kyrie. He was playing great at the beginning of the season. And then all of a sudden just went awol. Is that going to happen again. Is going to be happy. The entire season playing shooting guard. Or will he get the rich to have the ball in his hands more again even last night. Why was car sitting out. They said back tightness. But i bet you replace the next five games and is fine and plays great like they need to be on the floor as much as possible. I can't be legitimately injured hamstring but kyrie hard and they don't need to be just sitting out to rest are so the drama a is there. And here's the final thing steph and clay before k. got there. They proved that they could lead a team to a championship. They proved they didn't need this transcendent lebron or k. d. or somebody like that to lead them to a championship. They didn't need a stack team. They did it on their own k. D. was certainly the best player on those golden state teams but he went to a champion. Already he is still yet to prove. He can lead his own team to a championship. Even though it was the best player kyri hit one of the greatest shots in nba. History may be the greatest. But obviously that was lebron's team. Kyrie has have much playoff success without lebron james yet and we know harden has yet to prove that he can lead a team to a championship. So for all those reasons. I'm going with golden state
Lakers' Anthony Davis to Undergo MRI After Re-Aggravating Achilles Injury
"Saw anthony davis limping off court last night which with what is said to be an achilles injury that how serious is this and are you familiar with this familiar. I was watching it live. I watched last night. I figure and everybody davis had missed a couple of games sitting out because that achilles was sore. Oh okay a couple of games already. That happened this. You know this last five six days and when he walked off limped off. I just said oh my god i do not want this to be. Nobody wants to be a season ending injury But he was he he could put. It seemed no weight at all on that on that ankle foot and He's supposed to have an mri today and either. This is going to be. Hopefully nothing is out a little bit of time. Or if he's out. I mean if if it is bad as it looked totally It it that would be terrible news for the nba. Well then let me get to let me get to the other side of that. Which is if this are you telling me. This is a chronic condition that they are monitoring all the time so that means it. Could you know we go out. It's likely to go out. It's likely to be almost as bad on a day to day as it is. If you find out it's a tare. Right i mean he. He's he's not at full strength for any great length of time on my right eye. Who knows i mean yeah Maybe two weeks. Maybe two weeks arrest or three weeks. That's still a prognosis. That the lakers can can withstand But i remember before. I mean durant had something going on with that part of his body before he suffered an injury out for year and everybody said all is not related is related strain that they put on their bodies. It is all related like race sources. Now then they jump and they run in there so fast and their legs. Aren't you know what i'm saying. Their legs aren't strong enough to withstand all of the pressure. That i think that's true. You know i look at guy. Fear for the most zion williamson. I fear for him the most understandably so And and obviously anthony. Davis is a slimmer version. I mean he's a ton of weight right. They're certainly not overweight. Ever nope just you know. I just don't want bello. You know that would really impact the it would. They can't win. They can win if he if he doesn't play
The case for Baylor at No. 1 over Gonzaga
"The only respectful way to begin. This episode is by recognizing that scott drew baylor bears formerly known. As bill henderson's baylor bears improved a seventeen on the season tuesday night with an eighty-three sixty nine victory at texas. They outscored the longhorns. By seven in the first half they outscored the longhorns. By seven in the second half as a result baylor otherwise known as terry eagles alma mater is now seventeen and fifteen. Double digit wins. The bears are number one at kim palm. Their number one in the net. they are awesome undeniably. Norlander your turn to talk about baylor. Are you going to spend the next few minutes showing proper respect for the first lady of baylor basketball or are you going to once again disrespect. Kelly drew got drew. Plus mackenzie payton brody. Not to mention homer and janet price and tara dana and her husband. Casey bryson anna isaiah caleb. In luke plus drew barrymore drew carey. Drew brees drew bledsoe. Dr drew drew. Gooden andrew mcintyre how are you gonna handle this moment. bryce doesn't care does care. He'd bryce doesn't care. I talk to about it. He doesn't care. How are you going to atone for the fact that you still have a number one. I mean. I think it's disrespectful at this point. Daily top twenty five and one. After what i saw last night. I got baylor number one. But you don't and you disrespect the entire through family. And every drew. She has to drew mcgarry as well. You're disrespecting them all you've got number two. I think you're the one who needs to explain himself. I actually can't explain myself. And i do get asked this every day. I saw strong joe last night trying to make the case that baylor should be number one and i let it be clear. I won't argue with anybody that says baylor should be number. One baylor at this moment has a better resume than gonzaga. Got six quarter on lindsay. Does eggs only have five. Baylor is got the best adjusted efficiency margin in the country and one of the best of all time at this point. If you wanna if you wanna put baylor number one it is fine with me. It's just. I think we've talked about this. Before i made a rule a longtime ago i will not drop number one team unless it loses the only time i made an exception i went and looked it. Up is two seasons ago. Kansas was number one in the top twenty five and one to open the season. Kentucky might have been to. Duke was in the top five somewhere and do zion williamson cameras and remember the other one started with our allies and it was. It was whatever it doesn't matter. It doesn't rj barrett and so they went out and they just throttled kentucky on opening night at bankers life. And i just. I was even conflicted. Then because keynes's is just one and it was one zero and number one and i was like i don't feel silly not to have that duke team. That just did that to kentucky ranked number one. So i made an exception to the rule. Then but i've been ranking college basketball teams for better or worse for like more than fifteen years now and i've only dropped a number one team without losing one time and that is the example.

I think the crowd maybe be so high that they would give it the. Zion just because of his his name but jazz got a package of dunks. He's a tremendous passer. He can score he defends and he is led a group of no names who were garbage last year to the eighth seed right now. So, they got been in Joel embiid they got. Butler and Bam Outta by you in Miami.

"You have your own show I know. Listen. Side to be on the odd-couple but my goodness, let me give you two quick things jazz down twelve at the half. The score in front of me Ziya Williamson played seven minutes. He's only Pelicans player with a plus minus that's negative the only one he didn't get a rebound no assists seals nothing he basically just went to score now for the jazz broussard this is awesome. So Bogdonovich is out for Utah they miss him lately. So Jordan Clarkson is going to be the Guy Seventeen minutes on the court. He's a minus twenty three always do it just Jack and shots? You can see Donovan Mitchell is not going to stand for this and that's the way too much Utah Jazz analysis I thought none of this matter it doesn't but I'm excited. Gave me five minutes on the first half of the Jazz Pelicans but but none of this matters stop it I it matters. And I look Jay Mac I didn't ask Rick, Bucur, about this because I didn't want you to suffer through the indignity of having to long-term NBA writers you you're crazy. But you think John Zaylon Williamson. Who just ripped by the way I? Didn't do anything. Yeah. You ripped him winning it out now renowned Rob Rob Gio. Love this. Williamson is the rookie year. Stop it for me he is. He played nine, thousand, nine hundred. Definition what defined rookie of the year in the NBA The rookie that had the best season. That's the rickety. Okay. So if you look at which rookie has done more firsts. Zion Williamson his numbers are absolutely staggering for a teenager which he was for most of the season. Okay and then what he's done in Nineteen Games, Guy Averaged over twenty points a game. Now you just said it the same Mac. Part of the job is being air. How in the world? Can you be the rookie of the year when you only played nineteen games and by the way? They were ten and nine in those games. Guess what their record was in the sixteen game before as I got back Dunno eleven and five. Are Zion Look. He was great. When he played, but job Moran became the first rookie since MJ. Michael Jordan I to lead his team in scoring assists and lead to the playoffs. The first rookie. How. In the world is he not I? Mean it's ridiculous. Okay. You can't be rookie or IDIA war in one thousand, nine games he is. He is the fourth the. Fourth teenager in NBA history to drop thirty plus points per game. Hey, in value backing. You give me a first for John. I'll give you another. Number one overall picks to score two hundred points in the first ten games Alan Iverson. Shack and Zion that's it in the last thirty years.

"Seven seven six. Give us a straight talk straight. Talk wireless everything only at Walmart and getting a lot of tweets on pop This is a popular opinion pop coming in and saying miles Gary canceling his helmet. That said Mason Rudolph flat out wrong. He started the fight by trying to rip off Garrett's helmet. I believe miles when he says Rudolf Him. A racial slur Rudolph should got more than one game. Rudolph didn't get again. Got Fifty thousand dollars double check that but I'm pretty sure in the meantime again the NFL NFL investigated all of that. So that's already sort of been adjudicated. I'm not sure that I can go back and reeducate that so wombat came out and said I agree with this suspension. Rest of last. Here's sufficient just happened to be six games. What I really love on twitter is the amount of you? Guys that have found out of this a conspiracy theory which I love. We've even got some tweets that are coming in saying Cliff said MLB NFL to do it now. So we won't talk about the Astros. I'm in for a good conspiracy theory. That's peculiar work by then Floyd says has this suspension was more than enough especially with Mason getting a slap on the wrist but Bambino Great says ten to sixteen games for Period so not a consensus opinion. George Awards in Tampa what should myles Garrett suspension had been. Hey so actually agree with the Steven A.. And that They should probably do the season. Opener Bernard well but I don't think it should be from the NFL standpoint. I think it should be from the Cleveland Browns So you know for posterity reasons. They can you know set the standard and so that's unacceptable. Weaponized the helmet on. And that's an interesting question of if the browns could or should I'm not sure collectively bargain. I'm not sure they could do something. Above and beyond the League is already done. I don't know the answer to that. But should they. I mean my God. He had ten sacks before he was kicked out for the rest of the season right and the browns coming off a disappointing season. I'm I'm not sure that the Browns is an organization cares much about that stance as they do about. You know trying to make the playoffs so and Tom. Echoes this sentiment at least full season. Make sure everyone understands the penalty for using a weapon so we are starting to get a little bit more sentiment at this point for longer. Derek's there's not long enough will liked at least lis ten games especially if you take into account all of his other annex last season seems like the initial outrages gone. Well that's just the way the world works. I mean initial outrageous fading. I still have outraged to weaponising your helmet. I don't care what happens. Ultimately I want the stiffest penalty they can possibly give so it sends a message. Not just a mile gear but to the rest of the NFL that says hey you do this and it is so severe same thing I've said about cheating Major League baseball the way that you stop these things is would penalty. I say caretake brought to you by my computer career training for a better life. Tedy Bruschi joined the panel Maxim Steven A.. To talk about the surprising timing of the reinstatement. And if Myles Garrett got enough suspension from the NFL if if I'm myles Garrett I'm thinking my lucky stars that it only ended up being six game suspension I look at it and I was thinking eight games. I didn't think any type of full all season bands or elimination from the League. Anything like that. That was an overreaction but I thought this might have been an eight game suspension so out of set at two on top of it and then the word the word indefinite is strong. I know he's had to live with that for a little while. But did this suspension depend on when it happened during the season. If this was week six would have played again last season and would have would it have been ten in a week eight. It would have been eight but you gotta establish some type of consistency. Let's see if this happens again. And it's an emotional game. I understand what happened to Myles Garrett and how he went crazy and how he's in a situation where you got a helmet and you lose control and you swing it. It it can happen again is what I'm trying to say so when it does happen again you know you've got this to look back on it and in totality all it's been for Myles. Garrett is a six game suspension when I think a standard of eight for people to look at would have been better for the League moving forward. That's actually the best argument I've heard is that is that you're being sensitive to the fact that someone can lose impulse control in a moment because when they're angry if they if the other guys helmet off especially if the other guy is pursuing them you don't think about what you want to get them so because it may happen again. Eight gave a stiffer suspension is important because you need this as a reference reference point. The League needs to be able to point back to it. Look we did what we could but teddy basic point of view is. He wasn't hurt by the swinging of the helmet. Whatever may have happened happened? Mason Rudolph started. The fight escalated the fight by grabbing. The helmet got his helmet taken away instead and he didn't have to chase myles Garrett who's being restrained by two of his teammates if if he was ten yards away garrick could have done this. All you wanted one going to hit anything. So it's like everyone is focusing on Dad myles Garrett and he lost control he deserves the suspension but feels out of proportion to me and the NFL is all about images. Max It's about what we saw. What the youth of America saw what the fans saw in the image of that swing swing is basically what they're talking about here? They're not talking about what happened because all it is is it's a fight and things escalate to a point. You are correct Max absolutely but the swinging of the helmet is something an image that must be dealt with. Seriously I the helmet was player. Yep potentially what are your thoughts about my position that I said eight games. I'm thinking seven just to season opener only for the sole purpose of using it as a reminder. We did not forget what happened last gear. We want you all remember what happened this year because if you do it the penalty will be even more severe. I think that's the kind of impetus that needs to be on the motivation. The basic needs to be behind the decision making suspect you go into next season because the browns didn't make the playoffs Outta mind our. We've been celebrating football when we come back and you want to feel like nothing happened. No I don't think that's the right message to send. I agree with you because what what the point is now with that you say seven an eight okay just just make it seven. I'm with you there just so there's a little bit of a reminder to the players at this can happen again sure because now that there's not there's a reminder to the players where if I go to the commissioner and show contrition that things can be better because you have a meeting with the commissioner you you were you Express remorse you do all the right things and the commissioner will be lenient rather than knowing if you do that this is what's going to happen so this opens up inconsistencies which is something that there have been a lot of debates about with the NFL and how they've handled things in the past and now is just another example to where something like this happens again and then now it's all about debate. Is it about six games. What does indefinite truly mean? Does it mean you finish the the season and then you have a meeting or maybe. It's a few games at six games. Then I go to the commissioner and tell them how sorry I am and he lets me back in the league. The People's acting acting like six games is not a lot. Six Games is a huge sakes season. I Stephen said I think you have an interesting idea. They are mainly your point is that it'll remind people when the season starts member what happened. That's a good point and also he would have been suspended for the playoffs. They didn't make the playoffs. So you could argue that. He kind of got off a little lighter in a sense because he didn't have to miss those games while you're not paid the same for those games. I understand end the point I thought six Games was plenty in this case I say your take on. ESPN radio the ESPN APP and ESPN news. And Look we're getting several tweets leads to the to the point of what Stephen Ages said grant said. I believe six games is plenty of the reason. They don't want to have him suspended for any games next year because the NFL doesn't want US talking about it. And that's why the announcement came. So maybe it's right. Maybe that is the right thought. Give us your take. I take your take triple eight say. ESPN eight seven to nine. Three seven. Seven six as as we continue to get your take on what you think. The proper suspension shouldn't have been for miles. Gary you can also tweet me at Jason Fitz in the meantime that's not the only NFL news. It was coming out as Dak Prescott contract. Conversation continues to be a hot source of debate. I take debated today. Who would be the best option to replace tack? You can hear some of that and some of the surprising a thoughts from there after this. Let's first talk about Daniel a year ago. He resolved to stop putting off what he wanted to get into. Information Technology. Daniel enrolled in my computer career..

"You say that Williamson sure played inspired last night dropping a career high thirty one on Portland. Zion also had nine rebounds five assists and Listen Folks Lebron K. D. and Luca Danni which are the only other one thousand nine year olds ever rick ever to have thirty one nine and five game. Xian's averaging twenty one and just under eight boards through a whopping nine games this year as Rob Parker shakes his head. Rick Has Zion Williamson already established himself as a superstar in the NBA. Who who put him? I do in you know. Educate me and Greg are on one side. You're on the other the superstar tag they hand up keychains. The trade show yes apparently is we do. This is twenty twenty superstar. He's not even an all star yet. Thank you he is now I will say this. He is exciting and fun to watch. He has shown some superstar like like qualities. But right now. He's an energy guy that's what he is. He's an energy guy and he's a dynamic energy guy because he's so athletic but superstar is a guy who I mean first of all. What's the accomplishment at this point nothing? He's a celebrity. Yes yes yes this day and age also media. That's right that's what they are so but for me superstar lead you to who championships. He's the best player on your team. So I am Williamson is not the best player on this team. They don't play through him offensively defensively. He's he's not very good. I mean he's come on lost defensively. What surprises me is that as dynamic and athletic as is is kind of a phone booth rebounder like I would have expected that he was going to be able to his? That was one thing he was gonna put up huge numbers offensively. He can go get his own and he can do some electric things but man. I mean Judge Judy. Judge Judy a superstar. Because she's very popular. Let.

"He is Back Zion. Zion Williamson is starting to night Tuesday the while now. He's starting Wednesday. Sorry I apologize. He is going to be starting in the next New Orleans. PELICANS game and everybody excited about it. He's bans excited about it. Fox's probably best. CBS TNT. Probably probably. I mean everyone's excited about this. Because He Zion Lewiston when the most hyped players to enter the NBA. Sense Lebron James so so is exciting. Obviously everybody's hyped about it. He had a fantastic time in at Duke. Another player player. He had mazing time at Duke Amazing Year at Duke. They didn't win a national championship or anything but he was the number one. Pick in the draft to go to the neural New Orleans. Pelicans thought he was going to the Knicks. I thought he was going to go anywhere. But the Pelicans but the Pelicans one lottery Republicans got the number one pick and they picked the obvious choice was Zion Williamson. So what is the what. What are we expecting here so under with knee surgery before the season started? Of course that's why he has not played at all this year before he went on he played four four preseason games and he tweaked his knee during the preseason games. And that's what led to the surgery and all that so so his stats in the preseason games that he played in the four that he played in so he went he averaged twenty three point. Three points on seventy one percent shooting with with six and a half rebounds in four preseason games so the main question is Howard. The PELICANS GONNA use him so the Pelicans have been kind of getting by. They have Brandon Ingram. WHO's playing pretty pre- pretty great Lonzo? Ball's praying plane pretty great greats kind of overstated actually because the Pelicans are sixteen in twenty twenty seven at the moment they are eleven games under five hundred. They are twelfth in the Western Conference so by great I mean. They're great for what they've been doing. Bearing Ingram's been playing better since his time with the Lakers Lonzo. Ball's been playing a little bit better. Josh Heart is okay. Then you have drew holiday. Jj rettig veteran presence on the team they are playing as they usually play. So how are they gonNA use. I on when when he gets filing playing which he will start playing Wednesday so one thing that people people are saying is that he could get the Janas treatment when he does start playing so basically what happens happens the honest as they play they give him a load management so he could still be fresh for most game and fly around. These amazing plays at Janas does so they could gives eye on a very similar load management. Expect around twenty twenty five minutes in the first few games because you know he's still got to get him up to speed because remember he has never so played in a real NBA basketball game so that learning curve that most players have to go through by. Now they're usually pretty good. He still has to go through that learning curve. There's still a learning curve that he has to go through then on top of that he's also rehabbing that knee which he's already rehab. I mean he's got he's given the full goes one hundred percent to play for the Pelicans and the upcoming game so at first is going to be very little top and and it's really going to be interesting to see if you actually make impact. He made a huge impact on the prison. Two Games but those are preseason games. Actually Games are completely completely different but then again people said that about. He played at a small Catholic school in Spartanburg South Carolina. People said that when when he moved up to Duke went to Duke Start Playing on these ACC schools. They said he's got just to involve the Blah. We'll see how he actually how good he actually is then. They said the same thing when he moved up to the Summer League. We'll see how actually the summer league dominated at Summer League and now people are saying the same thing he's moving up to the actual NBA and people people are wondering is he actually going to be good in the actual MBA. So it's kind of all news at this point for Zion. I feel like he's going through the same same Amol Song and dance that people have gone. He's gone through three years pretty much because he was in high school three years ago so actually two years ago. He was in high school two years ago. So this is something he's been going through the past couple years everybody keeps saying there's a lot of nonbelievers when it comes Zion Williamson camp but I can tell you you got to watch person. Unfortunately I live near where his high school was. I never was interested in actually going to see a ranum high school kid play basketball. Aw That's just not my thing. I live near near where he is. I wanted him to go to Clemson because Clemson was definitely big target or he was a big target for Clinton he did not. He chose Duke over Clemson. Which I'm still upset about? But it's okay. He chose Duke over Clemson which smart move on his part I suppose but so he goes to Duke. Plays really well at Duke. I never got to see him on. TV of course but never got to see him live. Because Duke did not come to Clemson then then I wasn't gonNA drive up to Durham to duke game so I never got a person but what I've seen of him on television and during the NCAA tournament airmen during any duke. Game against the game played against Clemson. Duke at Cameron Indoor he is a monster. This kid is a monster. He is nothing like I've ever seen before you can compare him to Lebron but I think he's a little bit more physically. Gifted than Lebron was at this age Lebron James He. He was athletically gifted but physically. I compare Kinda Shack. He's like leaner shack because when I joined the NBA he was big. He was athletic. He can do all this crazy stuff. Zion kind of like that. That's how I would describe so so the impact impact on the Pelicans I feel like is going to. He's going to bring a lot of attention to himself. Because I feel like a lot of teams don't want to be shown up by ion remember. He is still the number one pick the NBA draft and the the basketball one player can change a team. Dramatically so having Zion in the game is going to open up. Avenues for for Brandon Ingram for drew holiday for JJ radic. He's going to get more open. Shots them on the outside and then also help with rebounds and stuff like like that is going to be very interesting how they use him like I said he's only in between playing twenty to twenty five minutes so as we very interested in how the pelicans skins how Alvin gentry uses him. The PELICANS still have a chance of making the playoffs. Now there's been arguments should the PELICANS even try to make the playoffs. There's is a young team Zion. Who's who you don't want to get injured again? You kind of want him to go through the rest of the season unscathed so he can spend the offseason getting better and getting full fully recovered from this injury. So it's going to be very interesting. How they use him? They could make the playoffs. They're just wealth. I don't know how many games out of the eighth out of the playoffs. The Ark but their twelfth in the Western Conference. Let's see how many games are they. They are out. There are only out four games from the eighteen. Only outboard games. Which is the Memphis Grizzlies? Who John Mirant on their team? WHO's there's another fantastic rookie? He was drafted second overall behinds ion and he's playing fantastic so the PELICANS can make. That's the bottom line with this terrible record. They could still make it. They still have a chance they will actually. They're probably more than four games out of the playoffs offs. But they're about four and a half according to basketball reference DOT COM so they still have a chance. Zion is good enough to get them into the playoffs offs. He is good enough. Basketball is completely different sport. When you when you have a team like the Cleveland Cavaliers and you just add Lebron onto it all of a sudden and they're making the NBA championship NBA finals every single year? And then Lebron leaves and then they're back to being back back to playing now. Yeah well back to pretty much relevancy. So it's interesting. It's interesting because one one player can really change changed a lot in the NBA. And Zion can change a lot for the Pelicans so the Pelicans are definitely GonNa be teamed. Watch the PELICANS game wins. I and makes his debut is going to be much. Must Watch even though he's probably not going to have that much activity in the game because like I said they're kind of rehabbing him they're kind of slowly getting them in you have that learning curve playing in the NBA which he still has to get used to and then of course you have the situation that they need to focus on. So there's a lot of deterrence to Zion Zion Zion Zion's debut but is still going to be exciting. He's one of the most exciting young players in the league and we haven't even seen him play game the fact that this many people are still talking about him. Even though he's been an injured for the whole year most most players will get forgotten about for the whole year. But now we've been talking Masire on this entire time. How the public can be with Zion? How how is going to play in the NBA and stuff like this so there you have it like I said it's GonNa be interesting to watch and I want him excited? I will tune into it probably will tune in for the twenty twenty five minutes Edzai in place and we'll see see how it goes and we'll see if the PELICANS will get over that Hump and get to the top so up next. We'll be talking more basketball but we're going to college. We're going to collegiate level as college. Basketball has been chaotic this year. And we'RE GONNA.
"zion williamson" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why
"And welcome to this week's episode of you're wrong and here's why I'm Chris where we're joined by Greg. Crone Gregory Houria. Another beautiful weird snowy snowy night over here in beautiful Pennsylvania Chris Beautiful Pennsylvania. Yes so you guys get to now. All of a sudden as as I was driving home I noticed a small amount of flurries and then as the next hour to win along some winter squalls Chris and Snow Squalls Elsa coding my driveway currently. But I don't think it's supposed to do or last much longer. Driveway Lottie DA. I know right Mr Mr Rockefeller No let's that's exciting. I think you know I've said this innumerable times but I miss snow in theory in theory in theory. Keyword there all right well this week thought about why the Pelicans are GonNa Richard Zion Williamson the season while the bills are going to beat the Patriots this weekend and why Madison Bumgarner is the best value so far and free agency. Let's start off with the New Orleans Talibans and and one Zion Williamson Zion Williamson the number one selection in the nineteen NBA draft. And I I were. He gets hurt after a pretty impressive summer league I would say and all of a sudden. There's a six to eight weeks time line and at this time on just keeps getting pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and pushed back and we're now past eight weeks. Zaylon is still not cleared to actually take part in five one five staff or do any any significant court trills. Greg this is this is a story. I've seen play out before we've seen. Oh He's is going to be ready in a couple of weeks. Don't worry about it when our teams tanking and that just never comes. I will say I check this out and I was surprised to see over at Bethesda sportsbook. They're actually plus twenty five hundred not amongst the twenty five thousand skews me not even the worst teams is in the NBA but there is just not a chance in the world. The PELICANS are going to Risk Zion's long-term future or quite frankly their draft pick and twenty twenty by playing this guy this year. Well I mean the question. The PELICANS have to face. Is You know especially with the guys they got in that in that Lakers the deal that sent Anthony Davis over how Zion's going to Gel with some of these guys and and I think that you know obviously you don't WanNa push him back from an injury early but I could definitely Italy see a post all-star break bringing this guy back and just letting him get used to the game. We saw firsthand me and you a sixers fan saw this play Out Year after year after year and it took such a weird adjustment period for some of these guys that set out like Ben Simmons like Joel Embiid. I took a little bit longer for them to kind of get their feet under them at the NBA level now. Obviously Zion is an unbelievably athletic kid and a lot of explosiveness. This is part of his game and I think that that's something the pelicans definitely have to monitor coming back from something like this and you don't want to exacerbate exacerbate an injury and obviously their seasons essentially over I mean there what sixteen games under five hundred already to start the season. They've lost a ton of games in a row. I think it's double digits at this point. It's you know the the hunt for the playoffs is obviously over but with the way the NBA draft is waded. Now tanking doesn't work as much so getting this guy even a little bit of run not only for the team but also for the fan base. I mean this is a guy. This is the Mo what. Let's let's be honest. This is probably the most hyped number one overall pick since Lebron. If we're going to be we're going to be perfectly honest here Just from the amount of media coverage the amount of focus he went to Duke. There's just so much focus on this guy to to not to not put him out there for a couple of games just to get his feet wet at the NBA level. I think is unfair. I don't think the Pelicans give a damn about getting him. acclimated playing with Josh Heart and Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram and Jackson Hayes and derrick favors. Whoever it is they want to put out there? You'll notice that I didn't mention drew holiday or JJ rennick because if you're if you're listening to the scuttle bought of late it seems like both of them could potentially be on the block. Why did you leave us? Jj why did you do it only to get traded and take your power out of your own hands. They're concerned about Zion long-term and you talk about the weighted it'd lottery system There's just -cation to that I get where you're coming from but the point is it's still better to have a better chance. You know if I I understand. It's not as drastic a difference. It has been in the past with more flat and lottery odds but worse team still have a better chance. And that's all you can really ask for. You know. There was never a scenario where that number one team was. Actually even the favorite to get the number one pick. The field was always the favourite because that that odds were what twenty five percent twenty six percent back in a pre weighted lottery. You know there. There was never any guarantees. And we've seen plenty of teams tank only to get the second pick in the draft third. Pick in the draft now God could be fifth. Pick in the draft if you're if you're New York Knicks Fan with RJ Barrett. Going four last year that he was hardcore. Tanking this is I on. This is all about Zion. This is about his future and who you're going to pair them with if you can add the James Wise Men are and Anthony Edwards or something along those lines. I I don't know how much percents Lamelo ball would make as he would potentially be taking a spot from his older brother but added Edwards or a Weisman. Come back next year and see what you got. But you're not risk nothing. I mean the problem is we've gone back and forth about market size and things like that with the Pelicans specifically is you. You're the risk of losing fan interest because of something like this though. It's not like the city of Philadelphia where you have you know a much. Larger pool pulled draw from a long rich tradition of basketball. You know going way back to the early fifties you're talking about you're talking about a Pelicans franchise that is relatively brand new in the in the you know the grand scheme of the NBA and to not have a guy like this out there to not not give him to not give the fans at least an opportunity to see him is is a really really difficult decision for me to watch them make. I mean it's not like like they're dropping ticket prices because he's not out there. You know what I mean. Those season tickets that skyrocketed remember all the stories in the videos of the ticket. Team going crazy when when they landed the number one pick those ticket. Prices are staying the same in you risk a lot when it comes to renewals and things like that from from a business standpoint by not having the sky play. I understand that the season's essentially over but how many games his rookie Zion Williamson really going to win this team. This team has contracts as constructed. It is not very good. They have pieces they definitely do. I mean drew's obviously a perennial. All Star at this. Point is one of the best young point guard gets. He's not young anymore. It's twenty nine. But he still a very very very good player in this league. And you outside of that I mean you do like you said you you have. Jj whatever derrick favors again. Nothing Great Brandon. Ingram is easily the best player on the team currently I mean the questions going to become as what do fans have to watch. What this team? If it's not Si- On pill you get Zion over the next. At least four. Three seasons you get a healthy sign you talk about fan interest waning and you know temporarily that may be the case but who cares hairs because the very second that guy steps onto the court it all goes away and that's all anybody who's GonNa WanNa talk about again and this team is going to be a lot more interesting thing if Anthony Edwards playing playing shooting guard instead of Josh Heart or JJ radic or somebody like that and then you genuinely have that young core for you know. A wise men might be weird fit just because they draft Jackson. Hey so high last year but a guy like Edwards gives you a potentially you. It's really interesting. Young trio of of Edwards Zaylon and Brandon Ingram. And then. Then you're onto something then you're not just a team that's interesting to watch because it was I on your team that potentially if everyone matures correctly becomes the team to reckon within the NBA. And what why would you risk you. We I think the only way the fan interest goes away is if you put this guy back on the court. He's exciting for game and a half then he lands wrong. Re Fractures chooses foot. And we're back to square one. That's how you lose fan excitement. Sure but what are the question becomes as he's two hundred eighty five pounds. I think the odds yet. But it's not GonNa Change. It's GonNa Change from this year to next year. It's not like all of a sudden ions going to become a felt to forty like if anything he's GonNa continue to grow into his body and potentially get bigger. I mean we're talking about a twenty year old kid right here. I mean you watch guys transform as they enter into the NBA. A and what their bodies become. Let's talk about a guy like Joel embiid. For example you know they come into the league. They add that wait they get bigger. I don't see Zion on shrinking anytime soon. So you're talking about worrying about something that can happen at any point. It's this is the same reason why I disagreed. Continuously with the sixers and what they did did with managing the injuries of Ben Simmons and managing the injuries of Jalil Okeafor nerlens. Noel and I guess Jalil wasn't injured but nerlens was an and even Joel embiid like we did this thing where we baby them and did for what exactly. Well I would argue. NCUA the Ben Simmons thing and I will believe this to my. My last breath was not the Philadelphia. Seventy sixers decision but rather the decision of his management management and Ben Simmons because I think they care about marketing and they wanted him to be able to be rookie of the year out. It's also because he didn't shoot three pointers and he doesn't shoot and he's not a shooter in what are you talking. What are you talking about? He's I think he's too for three but either way. Well he's I think he's actually two for five on real threes real threes real threes. I just wish he's the best shooter. Benson's will not have perfectly fine. You're incorrect but I mean let's think about the teams in New Orleans around. I mean they're in the much tougher western conference. I don't think Zion brings them anywhere near getting outside of that bottom autumn five or bottom six you know world in when it comes to the draft lottery. I just don't the team's not good enough to go in night in night out and beat teams. They're not going to be better. They're just they're just not. It's just it's not going to hurt their draft stock as much and getting this guy out there and letting their fans and see what the future holds. I think carries more weight I don't agree with that. I think this is you tank and you worry about it next this year. Are you at all surprised you. I mentioned the the Plus Twenty five thousand Pravada but are you at all surprised to learn that to win the championship. That plus plus twenty five thousand goes for both the PELICANS and the Memphis. Oh sorry the Memphis..

"Announces itself, Julius Randle at fifteen was the non Mus high school sophomore Zion at sixteen was an internet sensation. Looks possess style. Strength power now this morning Zion Williamson is not as good as Julius Randle. Because Julius Reynolds twenty four and it has taken him to twenty four years of age to be a twenty point game guy this morning, Julius Randle is better in one year. They'll probably be even from that point forward. Zion will be a significantly better basketball player than Julius Randle. Don't out think the room on Zion Williamson, this is what tiger Williams was tiger. Woods was at seventeen eighteen there were some doubters. I heard them swings too hard. This is what it looks like folks. Crazy and I love Anna's Kanter, but crazy Zion just sold more jerseys and shirts than every other first rounder in the draft first round combined. All right. Let me shift to this. Oh canada. Fifty fifty if they're going to keep coli Leonard, if they don't they'll rebuild. It's the height of the franchise. It'll never be the same. That's what I'm being told fifty fifty clippers raptors. I have no idea now. Lou Williams, smart veteran guy in the NBA once played in Toronto. He was six man of the year there, and he was on a podcast and he was talking about why Canada is simply different and tougher for NBA players. Once you're there, you'll love plan for the raptors you love plan for, for the country because his country, it's the whole country like that fourth fifth month into the season you like. I want to go home. When you play in Toronto you feel like you're playing overseas. Or does it feels like it brought like we can't wait to go on a road sometimes just to be in America, you. That's That's good. good little, you don't think the channels on your TV phone Bill. You gotta get you gotta get a Canadian Bank account like like that people don't think about, like it is hard. And then you have kids, you raising your kids in Canada. You know what I'm saying? So is once you dare you like oh, this is dope. But the hard part is keeping us. It's very interesting in my life, as a sports caster, you would think that all the big markets and all the rich people win. That's the way it should work, right? Better resources better geography better weather. But in my life is a sports caster. If you are excellent at everything you win, regardless of where you're at. That's why I think twice stays. And the raptors who do everything. Well, they're training staff, there, GM their scouting staff. They found PASCAL Seok them. They do everything. Well they coach. Well, they GM. Well, they scout. Well, the training staff they market. Well, folks in theory, TCU football should not win eleven games a year. TCU Texas, Christian small private school. They're surrounded by the university of Texas. Texas am Baylor Oklahoma's a three hour drive away. They win ten to eleven games a year. There is no reason Nebraska football dominated a decade. Why there's no players. They're there in the middle of nowhere. There's not a major airport. There's no reason. Yukon became a basketball dynasty, the men won four titles and fifteen years. They were the toughest team Duke had to face in the tournament. The women became a dynasty. Have you been distorts Connecticut? I lived in Connecticut, and I never went it to pass. Stor. There was no reason it would become the best basketball school in the country for a decade and a half. You know, why did to legendary willful coaches. There's no reason guns, aga- is a top five six program in the country. It's closer to Idaho than Seattle. There's no players. They're the Saint Louis cardinals are in the middle of the country.

"zion williamson" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Zion Williamson is being hyped as the biggest NBA rookie star since Legrand. But not everyone is quite that high on the pelicans number-one pick, take a listen to end his cancer on the heard yesterday. So I heard a terrible thing. I love sign Williams. Okay. He can pass. He's biggie strong. I think he's got a magnetism you think he's overrated. Say it, you can say it. Okay, so. I don't feel like his old hyped. I feel like his Julius Randle with hops. He's Julius Randle with. That's the way you're not the first person who said this some players, it was like skip to say, but, you know me to say anything. Fire? Well as expected Ilias, Randall didn't let that one go quietly. Randall responded by tweeting Lantis cancer. Last time you guarded me. I had forty five relaxed growth LOL Shannon. What do you make all this kind love to talk what you can't back it up? Remember, he said that about LeBron. When the Brian came to the Knicks put the hammer down on you might be the kid you might be the case. But you not in the king of New York. Do all this talking, and he can't guard apart car with AK? Stop all the reason people say that is because they're both Julius. Randle and Zion Williamson both left ended in skill. I'll look at Jewish. I thank you, very good player, and he's getting better and better every single year. It is. And I get I get what he's saying. He's. Zaire Williams might be good. But I think he's over how they might be putting too much on his plate right now. And he's but in doing so he took his shot. He brought you is Randall into an argument that he's having about is enjoys like sitting on his couch, long time, landlord up because this dude said, basically Zaia is you would can jump. This this what he does he's gonna talk. But I tell you what skill is that everybody. It kinda reminds you of Lonzo ball. But the only difference is zion's. Mom is not saying he's better than AD. He's better LeBron he's better than K. D true. What lavar did Lonzo which put a target on his back. Now there's gonna be a target on his kids back scared because, you know, even join this kinda high. If we didn't think Joe, I mean, if we didn't know what we know they, I'm sure they've been hyping like this. But guys gonna go at Zion on, you know, that with this kinda height, they're gonna make him prove that he's what everybody is hyping him to beat. But. Pay. No attention to pay. No attention. I don't I like Innis Kanter. I get a kick out. I don't take a lot of what he says, all that seriously. But I must admit when I first read the quote, he's Julius Randle with hops. I was thinking that's a pretty big compliment, because juice, Randall's, really good. Right. And I think you might have been there that night that he scored forty five and has played twenty minutes in that game play. I gotcha. Play anymore. A fifty five. So if you're calling somebody Julius Randle who average twenty one and nine rest year with hops. And we're talking about through the roof. Hop yet, we're talking about hit your head on reim- hard. You got king, right. Kangaroo hops. Yes. Well, if you add the hops to Jewish Randall with that size stature will twenty one to nine might be twenty five and twelve. Right. Okay. But see, I think the thing is what he's doing that. He said, we're not looking at Julius. Randle is a great player. People already warning to anoint Zion as great..
"zion williamson" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Nyein Williamson pretty much a guaranteed the number one, pick in tonight's draft. If wants to keep his job, and not head back to NBA, TV, Shannon. When you look at this young man's future, do you see him becoming a superstar astore or just a starter say, as I am with a little bit book, Pippi Lou mobile about this ill day? Skip. I know you're going to be upset, but I'm sorry. I see him as a star. Like in the middle somewhere. Yes, I think you'll be a good player skip. He's getting. Vince I followed the NBA, and I go back to magic magic rookie year coming forward that's been forty years skill. Only two people have gone, this kind of attention that I can recall Magic Johnson. Lebron James and Zion Williamson. Skip, I do not see him as those guys do I think he can be good. Yes. But I don't see that. I'm sorry. The outside shot is a set shot. It works if he's wide open. I mean everybody keeps telling me that Ben Simmons is going to develop a shot. I haven't seen it yet. Microcosm away was supposed to develop one of those Michael Kim grill, Kurds. Now I'm not saying they're talented Zion, but developing shot is not as easily. Oh, just develop that that was the case he to build he'd be you pull owns. But that's not what he is. So just keep the paint. I just don't see superstars give do I believe he could be an all star. Yeah. He could be an all stock. But that saying much rookie. I don't know if you'll be an all star his rookie year. I went back and checked it out. Since two thousand they've only been two guys to make the all star team rookies Blake Griffin was not one of Blake Griffin but that's an assery because he was drafted in no nine he didn't play any made it in twenty ten in y'all mean. Okay. In one country, they have a quarter of the population of the world. Let's just say they may have stuff the about. I'm not saying that's what happened. There's a possibility. So for me skip, yes. He's gonna have some highlight reel, dunks. He'll probably block a shot like LeBron data in game seven of the NBA finals. He would do things that will grab your attention, but to be when I'm thinking with the high this kid has, yeah. He's gotta be Magic Johnson. He has to be LeBron James because that's the caliber attention to kinda height is surrounding him. Yet you can't compare into magic as a basketball player and you certainly can't compare him to LeBron as a basketball player. His skill set. Which is why I can't compare him to anybody. I have been covering this game as you know, since the mid nineteen seventies. When I covered the Lakers pre Magic Johnson..

"Of famers in the NFL get derailed. You would think the Zion Williamson with that talent? Even if he's not great is going to be good or very good for a long time. Right. I think we're probably all on the same page just being very good in the NBA and. Like, look look at what they're making a year like in John wall at some point gonna make forty two million a year. Could you check that? I think in the next couple years doesn't John wall? Make forty two million, paulie. Yeah. Dan home. I good nece. He is making John wall. Nineteen million this year thirty eight million next forty one forty four forty seven million in the twenty two twenty three season forty seven million. But that's not guaranteed. Right. Of course. Yeah. It's the NBA. He's all set up. Why does anyone play in the NFL? They I know another sport is Lawrence basketball player. I'm wondering if he can play basketball. That's a knock on him. By the way, he comes in at six six which is over the magic line. I think he's as tall Zion. Williamson probably taller. Oh my God. John wall giving you twenty one and nine twenty one in nine can get you a forty million a year and in five years from now and his game is really breaking down. But what Zion Williamson going to get? So you get the rookie contract. And then you get these max deals. I mean, it's already planned out is in it for the most part slotted the rookie contract. Yeah. But then the second contract you get. Andre eight and the number one pick of the draft got he's gonna make eight.

"Dollars. On stub. Plenty of seats still available. You know, it sounds like you can tag these teams in in the NBA you can tank because now you realize who their tanking four like if you're consolation prizes. I on Williamson. That's that's awesome. Okay. RJ Barrett might be a better pro than Zion Williamson. But if the worst case scenario of being horrible is the Cleveland Cavaliers Zion. Williamson. I mean now it's going to be obvious. These these teams with what they're doing. And I'm trying to think who is going to be that blatant. The Cavs are bad and Kevin love is injured. But my who's who's worse than the Cavaliers. The knicks. Son's like sons. I watched the sons the other night. They they don't have it together. At all. They have talent they'd have talent. They just they need a they need a leader. They need a leader is what they need leaders. Jerry Jones would say I do you have a leader when your oldest players twenty. I know I know I know it's just a I'm watching and I just go this. This isn't good. It could be good. But it's not and man. And maybe maybe this is what they want. Let's not be very good. Let's not have a point guard or GM. And hey, let's see if we can get Zion Williamson R J Barrett. And then maybe it works for him. If I'm that bad. I I wouldn't I wouldn't disguise it just say, you know, want we're going to continue to be bad. We're gonna take our chances. Maybe we get a transformational player because somebody's getting you know, one of those two players at the top and the consolation prize will be the other one. That's pretty incredible our eighteen after the are more phone calls coming up, and we'll check in with Bob Nightingale. How sure is he that Bryce Harper is going to the Phillies, and what price and does that mean Manny Machado is going to the Yankees eighteen after the hour back after this in the Dan Patrick show.
