"zion williamson" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane

"Is, we've never seen anything like this. He's played 85 games. I'm going off the assumption he's not going to play this year. And if he does, it's probably more of a cameo type thing. But if he doesn't play 85 games, but those 85 games were amazing. Last year, in a mostly healthy season in his second year, he was 27, 7 and four. Insane. I'm like 95% from the field. That's exactly what it felt like. Yeah. Exactly. So yeah, so it is really at a point when you look at this of those are no brainer max, you know, full max, designated player language. Numbers, but the problem is it's 85 games over three years. And that's a fully owning. There's been a couple shortened seasons in there. They weren't that shortened. They weren't shortened enough to play basically one full season in three. So what I did was I broke down all the ideas that are out there of field extension, designated player, what the numbers would look like on those. What would happen if you put some of the embiid protections in there? It's even been suggesting to me, just signs the qualifying offer, that's got a little twist to it that can make that and I really a possibility. So go check the piece out. I'm not going to sit here and read it to you on front office show because that would be that would put me to sleep as well. But oh read it and take a look at it because I think it'll start to explain. We've never seen anything like this. And even finding a comp to this, I put some comps in at the end of the piece, they're not even clean. It is pretty pretty messy, so it's just definitely something I take a look at. Going to be really interesting to see what happens from here. And I mean, what pelicans fans, I don't know. Let's hope they can find the right path because there's a lot. I mean, part of the reason why this is so interesting is because there's a lot hinging on this, right? I mean, you're talking about the future of the immediate future of this franchise hangs in the balance depending on the health of Zion Williamson and what they ultimately do with him contractually. So we'll see what winds up happening there, but definitely go check out that piece. Yep. All right. Yeah, it's too not over simplify it. The pelicans have to get this right. You blow this one. It could be. And I don't even know what that means, right?.

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.

"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.

Third home run of the season, and the Angels have a one Nothing lead. Now. That was Otani Sze first plate appearance since he was shut down as a pitcher. And yes, I will tell you. I don't. I don't think it's ah Mon boggling and shot out. So the Angels radio network for the audio there I don't think it takes. You know a rocket scientist to figure out and understand that, you know, Yeah. Arm injuries can affect us a hitter. Just just a fact. Default, Tani continues with the arm trouble. Is that investment going to be worth it for the Angels? Because you got a guy who's amazing doing two things at once, but he can't stay healthy. Make him choose one. So it's tze wild. When he talks about its health and whether or not he will be able to go out there and get the job done. So good luck to one just amazing players, someone that we haven't seen in about 100 years. And to switch gears to the other side. There's another thing. Another amazing player in the N B. A. His name is Ion Williamson. And Zion. Unfortunately, we know he's been hand strong with injuries. He's being handled with kid gloves and why Zion just turned 20 years old Zion Williamson just jumps and flies through the air with the size of a linebacker. Zion Williamson is unique. I mean, he's come into the N B a and automatically is putting up numbers of 23. He she's grabbing six and seven rebounds. He is only averaging to assist. But when he has a better understanding of double teams, he'll get there. He needs to improve as a shooter. He needs to get better as an overall player, and we need to actually see him out on the court, and we need to see him healthy. Now we've heard for years. And we especially hurt when he came into the N B. A Zion is not in shape. Zion Williamson won't be what he is. I in Williamson can't win. Zion Williamson can't do that. And the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Basketball is not forgiving on any bodies, knees. Let's just backs. And we even have a doctor now, Dr Brian sufferer. Spoke to the athletic And he said, What comes down to Zion Williamson. He's in a race against his own body. If you go watches Duke highlights compared to now the difference is profound. In my opinion, his athleticism and conditioning have regressed substantially. He's less explosive, less conditioned. Slow on defense has already had a portion of his meniscus removed from his knee after an injury and he's still under close monitoring from the medical staff. I feel like nobody really wants to call it like we all see it. He's trying to reverse a Korea trajectory that by the pelicans own admission is worrisome, as evidenced by his reprogramming and scrutinized minutes he had four months. To start making positive strides into me. He's regressed, Mohr And Ah, outpacing these risks. I'm worried that Zion is losing the race. Now. I'm not going to say that Zion Williamson looks like a world beater. I'm not going to say that Zion Williamson looks like an athletic freakin a marvel. He is but I'm not going to say is that to speak This is also someone who you say has had four months to go out and pretty much prime. His career and and work want things to get back into the bubble, but he had the exit of bubble for for personal issues. So I don't think Zion is at his peak. I don't think Zion is in his best shape in a B honest as much as we want to see Zion quote unquote unleashed in the bubble in the N B. A I think it's a better move in a smarter move to just take your time with him. I get it. We want to see him in crunch time, and I'm not a doctor. And if I have an investment in Zion Williamson and I know he's not in shape. What am I rushing home for? Give him a full offseason. We don't even know what the hell of full off season is going to look like after this year. But Zionism competitors he's wanted to play. He's just being handled with kid gloves. And I'm out of fact, from early it's a day Zion is pretty much discussed. How much he feels about playing and how difficult it is to go and watch in lose. That's what Zion had to say. Virtually everyone else was saying to me some more competitive.

It was going to be for smart. Nfl batters so since we know we have the smartest audience in radio. It's good that I didn't pass. We're GONNA explain that a little bit too. Speaking of this show fastest growing Sean Fox sports radio now one time Jones a couple of months ago I remember. I heard Clay Travis. Ain't fastest growing show. It's like wait a minute can't be too fastest growing shows then just today or yesterday. I'm not sure what day it was because I was listening to the podcast. Raw Parker was on with Colin. And somehow all parker show the couple follows us with Chris. Broussard loved the show. Love the guy's somehow they're the fastest growing show. Neither of those are true. Straight out. Avai is now listen. You know how math as you can say. Well we have two million listeners. We went up to two point one. So we're up one hundred thousand. Yeah and five percent so we a new show were starting from obviously a smaller starting point and the but when you say growth you. Think percentage growth so in Davos and then someone else goes from two point one to point two. Hey congratulations went. Five percent fastest growing Sean Fox sports radio and your big part of it. We appreciate all the support. Great data join us right now in Las Vegas on the Strip. A hundred and six hundred degrees. The neon is off tow Thursday. Then it's back on a so RJ. Brian Windhorst of ESPN ALLUDED TO THE POSSIBILITY. That part of the motivation for the NBA to want to include a playoff and playing format in this year's playoffs when the NBA does return is because the New Orleans. Pelicans as a stands right now on the outside looking in and this would be a way to try and get Zion Williamson into the playoffs of course to me if there's anything that tells you the absurdity of acting like this isn't a business the NBA is a business and NFL is a business the xfl was a business. Now it's in bankruptcy. That's the difference so the Dave or did Stern David. Stern have a frozen envelope in nineteen eighty five. I hope so right because at least then he could feel good. He helped the league. Who said I mean? Listen we all want to act like. This is some more morality tale from you know. That's in some children's book. It would only make sense that if the bulls were up three. Oh in a series and you know they can win it in four or they could win and six with J. Let me see. Do you put a ref in there. That may be doesn't tend to call 'em MJ very favorably. Maybe is that right. Probably not but you know what think about yourself. Just do it for a week between now. It's six twenty seven eastern on Friday to do until six twenty seven to next Friday and be honest. How many things you do in `perfect big list? That's you but yeah I mean yours is going to be. Yeah you need an account following you around. But the question is if it's greater than zero that's imperfect the question then becomes what are the stakes. What are you doing it for while you know? I don't WanNa pay for that second soda. Dna and out Burger so me and my wife shared the one with the you know they do have free refills right. Yeah keep up in the well. That's a whole another level. You really you've done that. Who hasn't I Never Jonas? You've ever done that. Never done a ziplock bag in. Did you have ziplock bag? Even though it's completely sterilized yes. No health issues wow. When was the last time he did that fairly recently? I mean listen. I give them credit for being honest. I mean you can't give them cry that Steve Physic- I'm RJ bow. We're all imperfect these are businesses to me. The threshold is WHO's getting hurt and if WHO's getting. Her is a billionaire owner. Who may be the odds went down by two percent because a look now you let let into number ten seed and that means that the numbers like mark. Cuban has a lot to complain about. The seven seed is far ahead. If somehow there's a plan and you know what he'd probably not like it but you know what else he understands the business so for me. I think we can stop here and just not worry about. Oh my God there's gambling and Casablanca and probably just say realistically if we were making a TV show. What's the most exciting way to do it? So if we got off track if you never got to the answer so keeping it very narrow how would you do the NBA? When it comes to proceeding or progressing from here I will do whatever it took to Zion Williamson into the playoffs. So so there's a lot of options that could do that and and you're pretty neutral on like no big preference either way. Yeah I wouldn't. Those option would have a battle in some way and I think you actually were one of the first people that brought this up the idea of the NCAA tournament has those playing games. Dayton those the defacto start to the playoffs to get into the big tournaments. And that's what I would do. I would take either one game. One game shootout like one game. Maybe two three two if you had the time but either way figure out a way that if if New Orleans has a real shot to get into the postseason. I don't know what combination you would do that whether you would take seven eight nine ten. That's I think that's the natural right people have said and let's be here's the canned or here's the interesting part those plans for the NCA tournament. On Tuesday and Wednesday. Get a ton of attention. 'cause they're by themselves so part of that against the mavs. I think that would be. Let's see here Zeon. Right now is Let me see Pelicans or the Tennessee. Yes it would be ten verses seven which are the mavs. So you'd have Luca against Zaylon. Everyone would watch the three. Even that'd be exciting as you have a sort of a continental way about you. I bet you like some European flavor to this. Yes absolutely bring in Luke and let's face it not just talking about the soccer ask approach. Oh yeah the group. I don't like the group stage the all. I thought you were saying like that. Would you like. I don't think it's fair. What do you like the solution? Would you suggest I? I like your solution where you take that seven against ten eight vs nine and also it makes us so good. You got to sexy teams. The nine seed right now is Portland. So you've got a team. That's out of the playoffs in Portland. That's got you know Damon lowered. Its got mccollum. I think he'd think it was worth playing yes..

"You know just did enough and I thought Thomas was amazing in college. That's why we're he's done over. The last fifteen years of his career doesn't surprise me but we'll see what stem has man and I think this move was made for various reasons. He's a young guy. He has a bright future ahead of them especially being with bill ballot check so this could be some upside for him. I just don't think Brown hoyer it'd be starting at the start of the season. You you live just north of Miami so you see some dolphins action due to my two is my favorite college quarterback in this draft. I think there are some instinctive things that you can't describe and I think that's an equality. It's not that borough and everybody else can't play Justin. Herbert I think two is the best talent of this group. The question becomes. Do you play early. I have this belief that after about four practices. Everybody Miami's going to go. Okay wait time out this guy this secret sauce and we're just going to get him on the fear so I'm that's my guess when you went to Atlanta. It didn't take many practices before they were like. Okay this guy special but you sat for a while. How long do you think who assists? Would you play him early? The longest GONNA sit Carlin. Maybe a couple practices of when they resume training camp he might be number two on the desktop For the first week of training camp and then from there he should be number one and take all the rest after Calamari and Baker Mayfield. These guys started you know when they was junk rookies. It's no excuse me when you watch this guy throw the football and the accuracy bald placement. It is undeniable. Man You gotTa play tour early in you know it. Does you no good Plan Ryan Fitzpatrick early in the season. In the first couple of games you know what you may get out of Ryan and take nothing away from him. He's great backup. He's a great mentor He's done his do in a national football league but he can help to a more with tour being out on the field and getting the plane experience in Dan. Coming to the sideline and being able to digest just happened if things don't go well or if it does go well so It won't be long. I expect to be the Star Week. One I'm excited to watch this guy and the man just watching football right. They reminds me a Steve Young. Now you really does. He is a special by the way. You're a golfer and I'm watching Tom Brady and Peyton manning hit it around and I was totally entertained by it. I thought it was fantastic. Same here have you played with a lot of these guys. What did you make of the match? Well I thought it was. It was very competitive Look I I I've heard about pagans game and I know he can hit it a mile. I played some courses actually won this week that that he He made an eagle on. And you know drove the grain and and so so. I understand that you know Tiger Tiger But I never heard about braiding and his golf game in what he can do and watching Tom. Targeted put in a little more work. Tom Can put a little more work and it was raining and I know he's awesome. Competitor town would love to do it over again but the cause and what it was about and being able to raise that much money I think You know it was just a it was something that was definitely needed man. And they'll go a long way in life and I'm sure those guys had a great time. It looked like they have fought great senior. Michael I love talking to you. Your family's all good. Your wife making varies. All good is your Wi fi. Yeah my wife won't let me out the house Won't let me go out and cut growing little mini. I for up on the here but I know I'm enjoying it though.

The informed each team yesterday that the next phase of facility reopening will begin Monday June first that will allow ticket offices retail shops other customer facing facilities to reopen as long as they fully comply with state and local regulations and the League also expects coaches to be allowed back in this phase. We had Peter Schrager on earlier and he talked about this with us. It sounds like they're gonNA open up facilities to coaches next week. Which is a huge deal because they want every team to have equal footing so say for example if in Kansas City Andy. Reid is able to walk in the office. We Know Right now in New Jersey Adam gays and Joe Judge are not want that they want everyone to be able to come back at the same time. The word is that coaches will be able to return next week with obviously in coordination with all the health policies but also that it would only be seventy five people max or less than fifty percent in the building. It's a very interesting time with these off. Season virtual programs but to at least have the coaches in the building know the players. Aren't there yet is a great sign for things to come. It is really a great thing for the NFL. They are going to be able to do this. Because obviously we've all had zoom meetings and conversations. You and I did the show from separate places for two months but there is a there is something to human contact and.

"James in Zion Williamson also made it look easy tonight and that's where I'd like to start it's been a huge NBA weekend we've had the Yanis harden feud taken up to another level by James harden laying a passive aggressive haymaker and yes that may sound like it's not possible but it is we'll play that sound later on James harden in an interview with ESPN heavily heavily in firsts that Yanis has no skill and no talent so what is your issue your response Friday night with a thirty two point effort leading the bucs straight blowout win over the thunder a good team out west by the way and then Sunday against grant that allows the Hornets team but still an NBA game and NBA team on Sunday Yanis has a historic performance doing something that the bucs have not seen since the days of Kareem Abdul Jabbar and harden has chance to respond on the court he was in prime time Saturday against the Celtics involved looked like he proved himself really he did search that photo on social media it's everywhere pardon on the floor and nice ugly streak of brown on his white shorts I mean literally sometimes these stories right themselves but the main event tonight what is lebron James Zion Williamson as I mentioned to you guys to make it look easy on the basketball court two giants really can make it look easy on the basketball court and we've just we've we've spent a lot of time over the last few nights slash early mornings depending on where you are spent a lot of time commending yachts for his response to harden we've been praising his game and we've said he probably will win the MVP for a second straight year I have said Yanis is the present Jana's house an opportunity this postseason to make this his league if the box can fill what many expect them to do run through the Eastern Conference make an NBA final compete for the championship Yanis can really take this league this week is here for his taking and while that's true let's not forget that this is still a Brian James is weak this is still a bronze NBA in lebron showed us why last night in what has been just a sensational season and what I want to do tonight to kick things off at again eight five five two one two for CBS I want to hear from anyone Braun haters out there do you still exist or skip Bayless the only one at this point really that's the question I have lebron haters you were allowed in vocal through the majority of his career really until just a couple years ago where are you now lebron is thirty five years old he's playing such damn good basketball he's playing winning basketball and not only that as we saw Saturday with John Moran as we saw Sunday with Zion Williamson in the embrace well Brian had with him after the game lebron James is not just the best player in the NBA lebron James is the NBA's elder statesman lebron James has achieved statesman status years before he will eventually retire that's how good and respected he is around the game lebron has been in the forefront of everybody's minds since he was sixteen years old he was really one of the original he was the original NBA social media star and what's the worst thing you can say about him he pouts sometimes the decision special ten years ago which frankly looks kind of quaint now I mean we have all these rumors around Tom Brady and the NFL for example and don't worry when I'm behind the Mike we will get to Brady watch later on in the show Tom Brady looked like he was facetiming with Mike Rabal at UNC Syracuse somebody still needs to explain to me we try to come up with the answer I think yesterday we fail to do that why who were Tom Brady Julian Edelman eight sitting with Jimmy Fallon and he would see Syracuse given B. why were they there I mean I understand the carrier dome was last game there before renovations by white where's the connection to Syracuse I don't know but regardless every day seemingly every hour we have all of these crazy Brady rumors he's going here he's going there he's texting with the patriots he's not texting with the patriots receive facetiming with this decision which was really pre Twitter does not look quaint in comparison to all that it was a secret nobody week that was announced on television one night boom we were done it was not this prolonged it stretch this interminable stretch of rumors and rumblings and I'm hearing that some hearing that any quote unquote insider can go on TV say a rumor they heard in a restaurant bar in oh my goodness it's it's running Twitter for the next two hours until the next crazy Brady rumor pot props up the decision was quaint in comparison to that but really that's the worst thing you can say about lebron James somebody's been the spotlight since he was literally sixteen years old and he delivered tonight I mean last week when they matched up for the first time a bronze eye on it was great lebron dropped forty forty points sign on drop twenty nine and Sunday night I mean they were just as good lebron lit it up thirty four points twelve boards thirteen assists another triple double twenty first triple double with the Lakers tying Kobe for third most in franchise history just an incredible performance from lebron crossing upside on driving to the hole three pointers in sciences and science space a three pointer from Bourbon street after side delivered a ferocious dunk and the previous possession on the other end I mean it was incredible back and forth tonight Diane thirty five points seven rebounds in thirty three minutes now that is efficiency that is efficiency it was just so great and so much fun to see these two go out each other and I knows ion is like what's at five six weeks into his NBA career but he's already must watch he is a bulldozer he uses all of its two hundred eighty five pounds let me tell you he is chiseled all he is a force to reckon with he went right at Dwight Howard Sunday night right at Dwight Howard in the fourth quarter who does that number one and number two Howard stood down Howard couldn't get on the ball Zayn had the end one I mean the guy had his free throws on top of it he is awesome he is great and that's why it was so touching if you well if it if as far as as much as basketball can be touching and a basketball sense to see what Bron embrace sign on afterwards again lebron James really being that statement showing that this is his leak you don't want acceptance from Yanis you don't strive for acceptance from James harden I mean it's nice it's great no doubt about it you'll take it but everyone strives for acceptance from lebron James as John Moran said Saturday that's the king I mean these guys signed on rant there twenty one years old I mean there's a human science nineteen rather their younger they're so young they're in their late teens or early twenties they don't know when NBA without lebron James I'm in my late twenties I am about a decade older than these guys and I consider lebron part of my generation they're ten years younger resigned Williamson was born in two thousand nineteen years old these guys grew up worshipping lebron James and now to play against them to be on his level and to have them be as cool as he is and lebron the bottom braces that role lebron fired back at its critics Sunday night when asked about his close relationship with these young players and why he thinks anybody who has a problem with that shot it here's lebron hi this is.

And that's why when you look at Zion Williamson, there's a chance he could not be a bust unless he got injured but he could be a disappointment. I really think there's a, a great chance. Zion Williamson could be disappointment from the standpoint of what the expectation levels are not a bust completely different categories. And we'll talk about this, the difference between being a disappointment and being a bust because there have been players taken number one overall who weren't bused. They were just disappointments.

"My Cleveland was never on national TV. You know on your road game. There's going to be sold out. No other player in the draft. As you that no other player, let alone the -bility that he has the physical ability. But I'm just talking about the stuff off the court and a lot of guys don't come along. Like that. Now what happens once he gets there? We don't know, you know, hopefully, he's he's injury free, and they can grow and beaters top fifty player because we all love to see it. Well, he automatically makes you relevant is is what you're saying that that he and it's very few guys where there's a tune in factor on a bad team where you'll continue to watch, but you will watch Zion Williamson. But if I said Yordi know what Luca Donncha can do from his rookie or in trae young what they could do with their rookie. Or if I said, you can have their future. This isn't anything to do with finances. It's just what you do on the basketball floor, and I gave you zion's future Luca or Trey young who are you taking? I'm gonna take okay. You know, even how we don't know what he's going to do. And we're looking at you know, Luca and Trey and they've had great rookie seasons. Yeah. But I think those who still have limitation okay in regards to where to go because from a size perspective trae is still smaller Luca still has some challenges for quickness he could still gotta get his body together. But I mean, that's a great. I love that analogy because you give us something that we've seen 'cause nuke us on in preseason. And I said once he gets once he gets it. He's going to be good. But if something about Zion right now that is special. I don't know what that is. You know, some guys has had it, you just don't know. And they know how to figure things out. It's a something about him. Because think about it people are tuning in to watch. How does basketball they tuned in a lot earlier this year because of that, Matt? And the question was was this was this Thomas transferable? From college to I mean from high school college RJ bear was rated hired nine was nothing. He's answered that question. But it's a shooters league when you get into the NBA, and we know that he he's sort of hesitant with that shot. And I you know, but day who's in conversation for them to be paid. Well, they're they're young. They're better player. He's a better player ben-zion, obviously, here's here. But obviously. But here's the thing though. The thing that Janas making great, of course, he's six eleven. I mean that always helps the handle here's what the handle his ability to get you the best or despite you backing off with him. Okay. All right has showed in college. His ability to put it on the deck attack. And then make a play. Okay. So at that three or four position probably at the four position there. He'll have a mismatch a little bit. And he'll be able to create off the dribble and do some things until his shot hopefully comes around what if I said, you could have Ben Simmons future or zions? I'm figures, I me and tell you what. Simmons to me is so reluctant as a offense of play. And you know, he wants to he's not a true point guard, and I had him a few times during TNT games this year when been determined that he wants to be been, oh he's taught..

"Eight five five two one two four CBS people are making Zion Williamson out to be something that he's not this is so weird to me. It happened in the media now, tampering with callers and people on Twitter. When I said that injuries don't tend to derail basketball players careers. They're making Zion. Williamson into being something that he's not. He shoe blew out and he had a mild knee sprain. He has no history of injuries. He is two hundred eighty five pounds of pure muscle. He is a wrecking ball Hughes already. I would argue the best athlete in basketball. Listen, if he wants to shut it down. He can but basketball players play basketball. They play it year round. Aaron Lambert's being real condescending. And a real jerk about it on Twitter. All right, Aaron fine. You make him out to be Derrick rose, that's on you. Derrick rose had three knee injuries. Still made over three hundred million dollars in his career. I got Justin on Twitter make them not to be Michael porter saying Michael porter seems to have it through those of back injury. That's been chronic that he broke and he got hurt in high school and college multiple injuries. I argued on behalf of Michael porter shutting it down last season. Because of that is a chronic back issue. This isn't a chronic thing with Zion. Williamson. His shoe broke. He's fine. Even if he got hurt next week or next month in the NCAA tournament. He'd still be the number one pick. He still would get the record-setting shoe deal. He's still would get the huge endorsement deals. These contracts are guaranteed for Zion. Williamson guaranteed Nike cannot afford to lose out on him. After that incident that happened in the Duke UNC game basketball contracts are guaranteed. Now. Football contracts are not football endorsement dollars are not which is why one year from now. Assuming Trevor Lawrence has an awesome season for Clemson. I will be advocating for Trevor Lawrence to skip his junior season. Sign with an agent get a quarterback coach trained for the NFL draft. You'll have nothing left to prove football's too dangerous. You're your potential is too short. The endorsement opportunities are too short the concussions or too serious. It's a different game. Guy saying ACL's an ACL. No, it isn't. It's easier to recover from an ACL injury in basketball than it is football. Because in basketball, part of the objective isn't for the other team to die that your knees. Your contracts are not guaranteed in football. Like they are in basketball. So an ACL injury to Trevor Lawrence really, potentially impacts his earning potential. Makes it a little bit less explosive. Makes it a little bit less allusive makes it a little bit more susceptible to that. Next. One makes guys target him. A little more make him after play with a knee brace. It's a different animal. Now does Shawn Watson is torn each of his ACL's. Hopefully, it never impacts him again. Hopefully, he's able to overcome it. But it's different. It's different than basketball. Basketball players are. Uniquely protected. Baseball players are not right because throwing a baseball is so unnatural that if you're a pitcher you're gonna have elbow and shoulder problems at some point because it's unnatural throw a baseball ninety five hundred miles an hour in football. You're gonna have injuries because it's tackle football baseball. At least the contracts are guaranteed football. They aren't Zion. Williamson people are treating him like he's a football player because he looks like one. He's a basketball player. Lebron James plays basketball in the off season. These guys play pickup. These guys have legendary pickup games, legendary workouts? They go to Rucker park. They they show up at rec leagues. They get organized games all over the country over the word, they go on promotional shoots. And they have it worked into their contracts that they have to have gym time. So that they can get runs in. I'm going to China to promote the shoe deal. Okay. Cool. Where's the gym going to be that I'm going to be able to work out and hoop? That's how basketball players are. It's totally different. It's totally different. And Nike absolutely will pay Zion. Williamson because if they don't Puma will or Adidas will or Reebok will read some of the reporting from Darren rebel and others about what the shoe companies are going to be doing off that incident that happened the other night that is something that has I haven't seen that happen in basketball since Manu Ginobili in two thousand ten twenty eleven where a shoe exploded. But it exploded in the most watched college basketball game of the season with the most expensive get in for the number one pick at a Nike school where Nike pays Duke more money than any other school man, if Reebok gets Zion Williamson they will use that footage and recruit against Nike and advertise against Nike. You know, the Pepsi challenge that helped Pepsi build its brand against coke or how Samsung targets apple in its advertising. Nike's the king. You think they're gonna let Zion Williamson sign with Adidas. So Adidas can use that footage of Zion. Williamson exploding shoe, it'd be like would happen and Adidas no shot. They are going to sign Zion Williamson because they have more money than everybody else. And they'll be willing to pay more money for it. We think LeBron James showing up Zayn Williamson's games is an accident. Rich Paul trying to sign him. Jay z went to his game rock nations. Trying to sign him. All these guys want Zion. Williamson he is a megastar. He's a superstar. He is a FINA. He's got a cult following. He is locked in to generational wealth injury. Or not he absolutely. Is you could say that he isn't. But you'd be misconstruing the. Reality of basketball in the shoe game. Kevin Durant couldn't bench press one seventy five once at the combine people were questioning if he was strong enough to be in the NBA most outstanding player at Texas, yet sixty million on his rookie shoe contract. These basketball is a different game for FINA, GMs monetarily because people were making a monetary argument for why he should shut it down. He is set artists and eight million dollar insurance policy, but eight million is pennies to Zion Williamson is gonna make in his career from endorsements. So I don't care whether or not he does continue to play its Zayn Williamson's choice. But what I'm telling you is is that basketball players play. And he is fine. People are treating it like this was a big injury. It's not if he was eighty percent. Oof. That's a mild knee sprain. Two to four weeks. I'd say shut it down. If he was at risk at all of a future injury. A heightened risk at a future injury. I'd say shut it down. But he isn't. I will be Florida Zion. Williamson doesn't play again for Duke this year. And I don't think it's that crazy of a risk for him for other people. It would be for guys who don't have the endorsements lined up. It would be for guys who aren't locks to be the number one pick. It would be for football players. It would be for Trevor Lawrence next year. It will be for Zion Williams and this year he's unicorn he's an outlier. He's a unique singular entity. I really don't think Zion. Williamson is risking very much by playing. Man, Scott was just going to get on the air. But he said that not playing says something about character. I it doesn't. I don't believe that at all. You look out for yourself. I just don't think the Zion Williamson playing college basketball is risking all that much. Jim in Minneapolis. Thanks for calling. You're on The Danny Parkin show. Thanks for having me on any person collar. The opinions. I n should not play. And I would like to get your thoughts. See if I can blow up your point of view. There are injuries and basketball. A rare, and they've not occurred to marquee athlete really career. But if it's I n y. Williamson comes down from a dog. That's actually down awkward cases helpful or has a fracture into the elbow. Range of motion, which is very common. He would be done, and he would not get a shoe contract. And you would not be the number one overall pick, and there's on Jones factors of the foot that are poor healing ruined professional athletes career, they're very common basketball, and they come down on other players new invert the foot or you can. Let me I'll I'll let you respond. But my question, then is do you think that everybody who's locked in to be a lottery picks you just stop playing right now? I think I do the way the college game is set up for them. I do it says so. Iran. So it's not Zion. Williamson specific you're saying, John Mirant RJ Barrett. Cam reddish the Culver kit. Anyone who is locked into being a lottery picture just stop playing right now. With the way they have things set up and they're playing so much risk for young, man. No other skills that are gonna put them at that level. And it's just such a huge risk for them. If one of these things would occur. I would agree with that. Yes. Okay. And desire. I agree with you completely. Nothing nothing to do with this conversation. Really? Okay. Well, listen, I appreciate that type of sinema. At least you're consistent about it with all those guys. And again, if you missed the open when we started talking about this forty minutes ago, I am as pro player as it gets. I think the NC double A is ridiculously exploitive. I would I recommend. I think that it's crazy that NFL players play in the pre season. I think it's crazy that they play franchise quarterbacks on losing teams in week sixteen in week seventeen of the regular season if they're eliminated from the playoffs. I think the college football is horrifyingly exploitative because of the dangers of the game of football. Like, I am totally pro player and totally risk averse to injury. The vast majority of the time I just think Zion. Williamson is an exception. I just think he is uniquely positioned to benefit greatly from this folklore mythical stature that has come out of him playing college basketball at Duke. He looks like a grown man compared to everyone else. He's playing against I truly believe Zion. Williamson is the best athlete playing basketball right now. Jaanus westbrook. Anthony Davis ever use a best athletes. I truly think its's I n Williamson. That block shot the vertical leap the size. The combination of everything. I don't know that he'll be you know, we'll see how much it skills developed. How much is handled developed how much jump shot develops? So I'm not saying he's the best basketball towns I've ever seen as a prospect, no way, I saw LeBron high school, but. I'm not even sure he's a better prospects Franklin than Anthony Davis. But in terms of an athlete. Nothing I've ever seen quite like him. I don't remember. Bo Jackson as a prospect. And I think that's what we're talking about. When we talk about Zion Williamson. So that's what shoe companies pay for. And so the more he plays the more. He actually builds up that mythical thing in terms of endorsement dollars, and I truly believe and some people disagree with this. And that's fine. But I truly believe if in the national championship game, he tore his ACL. He still would set a record setting shoe deal. And he still would be the number one pick in the NBA draft. If I didn't think either of those things I'd be telling him to shut it down. I just think he's singular in that way. More of your reaction before we get out of here. The unique spot that Roger Goodell fines with this Robert Kraft story. It's a complicated one. We'll get into it. It's The Danny Parkin show CBS sports radio. Hey, guys. NBR's.

"Is the Dan Parkin show on CBS sports radio. And I appreciate you hanging out. We're discussing Zion Williamson, and I think the overreaction to a freak occurrence when that shoe blue Audi blew a tire. It's a freak thing happened and people telling him to shut it down. I don't think he's risking much. I think the NC double A's exploitive. I think it's terrible. I think that the one and done rule is going to change. But I think Zion Williamson has benefited from it. He'll get a record setting shoe deal. He'll be the number one pick even if he gets hurt in a couple of weeks. Like, I think he's fine. And he's more than fine me became a sensation. He became a female because of playing at Duke, so we can get back design in a little bit. With the Paul's if you wanted eight five five two one two four CBS, I just I just think it's a little odd that people are using a football sensibility on a basketball player. When basketball players don't suffer the same types of injuries as football players. You can recover in basketball, and the contracts are guaranteed. So it's just a totally different thing. However. If we want to talk about a guy who could totally change, the culture, and the landscape of college sports, as we know it. You need to look to Clemson, South Carolina. And the quarterback of their football team Trevor Lawrence now Trevor Lawrence so far from his interviews has not in any way indicated to me that he has any interest in being this type of revolutionary figure this type of precedent setter. And I don't say that as a knock the kids nineteen years old. I just say it as he doesn't strike me. As Josh Rosen from last year at UCLA who was very outspoken who's talking about unionizing who was talking about the exploitation of college athletes, and his teammates and was very for lack of a better term woke to those issues that doesn't strike me as what Trevor Lawrence is right now, but there's a long time between now and next year and let me just lay out what's in front of Trevor Lawrence. There are some people in and around football who believe that. If Trevor Lawrence came out this year. He'd be the number one pick in the draft as in nineteen year old who just won the national championship at Clemson and played in what eight regular season games and two playoff games. So in ten career college games. There are some people who think that night that a nineteen year old would already be the NFL pick number one pick not that he would play necessarily next year. They wait for his body and minds and develop and catch up to the NFL speed. But as a quarterback prospect this year, you might be the number one pick Clemson will be preseason number one next year. He will be the preseason favorite for the Heisman next year. Assuming Trevor Lawrence has a great season next year. Whether he wins the Heisman or not whether he wins the national title or not, but assuming that Trevor Lawrence puts out. We'll say twelve regular season games. Plus, I mean minimum they're going to a bowl game. They're probably going to the playoffs. They're probably going to the national championship. But we'll say thirteen games of film to be safe. Right. Twelve games at Clemson. And then a bowl game or playoff game or two playoff games. But let's say thirteen games a film for Trevor Lawrence ads at the ten that he had this past year, including the dominant playoff game performance in national title game performance over Bama. That's enough tape for Trevor Lawrence to be drafted number one overall. If he sits out the twenty twenty one college football season. In my opinion. In my opinion. That's a guy who could say, hey football's dangerous. I don't need to subject myself to a tornado C L to hurt my mobility to a concussion to hurt my life expectation to a separated shoulder to a three hundred pound or fallen on me. I don't need to expose myself to any of it. I am done playing college football. And frankly, I'm done playing football for a year. I'm not going to the CFL. I'm not going to the af for the XFL or whatever startup league is around in two years that would be happy to pay Trevor Lawrence a decent amount of money. I am signing with an agent and that agent is going to hook me up with the best quarterback coach in the country. And I'm going to work on my game. I'm going to study NFL offenses. I'm going to study dropping back from under center. I'm going to be a professional football player in every sense of the word with the exception of playing for an NFL team and Allen to the draft in two thousand twenty one. Clemson fans would be apoplectic. My sister went to Clemson my wife wants to Clemson. They would be set. I think they'd understand. But they'd be set. It would be a total game changer. I'm actually shocked frankly that no football player. Who's a first round pick has decided. Hey, these guys are skipping the holiday bowl and the the Orange Bowl and the Pac sun game or bowl in the pinstripe bowl. I'm shocked. It hasn't gotten to the point in football yet. The guys aren't skipping the college football playoff games. Oh my God. That's crazy. It's a playoff game, man. It's not for any money. Football's dangerous football contracts are not guaranteed. I am as risk averse when it comes to football. As anyone you. I don't think that the best players should play in the preseason games in the NFL. I think that the college athletes is soon as their draft draft stock is solidified they should shut it down. I think it is crazy how dangerous football is for the exploitations of an unpaid work. Workforce. Now, they're going into it voluntarily. But it means it's voluntary two ways. Right. They can send a scholarship offer. They can cut you in the NFL you can transfer. But you gotta sit out a year as soon as you're locked into being a first round pick and football, man. Stop playing football for free. I'm a huge believer in that. It's just too risky because that sport you only have a finite number of hits in that sport. It shortens your life expectation in that sport, the contracts aren't guaranteed. People are talking about Zion. Williamson like he's Trevor Lawrence. He's not Zion. Williamson is more LeBron James more. Kevin durant? More Russell Westbrook. He is a lock to make one hundred million. Plus that is his absolute floor is one hundred million dollars fully guaranteed number one overall pick rookie contract, I shoot deal. He's probably a lock if we're being honest to make two hundred and fifty million because he'll get that second contract. He'll be good enough to do it. What was four years? Eighty million. So that's another eighty million. Plus now Jaanus is up for the supermax. But we don't know if we'll be that good. But safe to say, he'll get a second contract in the NBA. Plus he'll sign a deal with upper deck or he'll sign a deal with sprint there. He'll sign a deal with some other national NBA media partner, and he'll make killing so science floor is probably closer to two hundred million in career earnings. But for the sake of this conversation, we'll put it at one hundred man. No college football player has a guarantee earnings one hundred million dollars, not close especially with new rookie wage scale from the post jamarcus Russell Sam Bradford years. Nope. You're not guaranteed that type of money until you get to be Aaron Rodgers Peyton Manning. Tom Brady, you've got to be the crendall creme to get that type of money in terms of endorsements and guarantees and protections and all of that and football. So. In my opinion, Trevor Lawrence now, he'll get a lot of pressure from you. Oh, it's your classmates. You got a scholarship. It's three years. Your body is fully developed Chevra. Lawrence is going to hear it from everybody and navy. Trevor Lawrence is not interested in being polarizing and a singular figuring he'll love college. And he'll say, hey, you know, what I can be the greatest college football player of all time. Tech with Tim tebow in Archie Griffin. And whoever else you guys want to throw out there. Trevor Lawrence has a shot to be a three time national champion with the two time Heisman Trophy winner. So maybe he'll be like, I don't care at all about this. I'm gonna make my money. I'll bet on myself. I'm invincible. I think I'm going to be fine. Maybe he will. I love to watch him play college football for as long as he wants to play college football. But if I was advising Trevor Lawrence, I'd say this is your last year of playing football for free. No sense in sitting out this year because you're two years away from the draft you may as well put more on film. Get more game. Experience win a Heisman Trophy winning another national championship? You still got a lot to learn improve. But after doing it for two years nominee Trevor Lawrence should be done after this year. Zayn Williamson I keep playing that's the difference between football and basketball. But I think a lot of people in the media are just totally messing up and totally missing eight five five two one two four CBS. Let's take. Let's take Jason and New York skull. He's got a he's got a point that. I haven't mentioned yet. Go ahead. Jason. Okay. First of all nice to talk to you first time and even bringing up some very good points. But to me sitting down eighty college player be it zone Williamson or travel large, which by the way, you bring into mazing point. He was spectacular in the in the bam in the Bama crushing. And a lot of people did believe and still do believe that he would be the number one pick now. But if you stay if a college player not on like, let's say that has half the talent upstairs. I wanted me says, you know, what I play by ten games on done. What does that do to the integrity of college basketball? And or college football. It's at the dangerous precedent to me in my opinion. That's me is not Zion. Williamson's concern. Of course, not. No, I I agree because I on needs to think about himself because he's a special player. He, you know. And you're absolutely right. It was a freak accident. He's you know, the the whole shutting down argument in that respect is bogus. Brought to me. I think if Zion sits down it's going to it's going to have a very negative effect on sports in general, at least to me. That's the way I observe it. Listen, I appreciate the call, man. I really do. Thank you for making it the idea of having a negative effect on the sport in general is not something that I'd be too concerned about if I was I n Williamson because your responsibilities are to you, and you alone. But to me if people are confused with the Trevor Lawrence example, it's very simple Zion. Williamson plays a sport. Where the contracts are guaranteed an injuries don't derail your career like they do in football. Football. They do in the contracts are not guaranteed. So I was Trevor Lawrence. I'd play one more year. And then shut it down five design Williamson. I'd keep laying you're already locked into being the number one pick and a record setting shoe deal. We got another hour to go. I appreciate you being with us. Keep calling keep hanging out.

Wanna go to what you thought of Ryan Clark last night or yesterday? And we'll play that sound for you. We're being brutally honest about guy that was quarterback of his former football team, Ben Rothlisberger. Eight say ESPN if you want to chime in eight seven to nine three seven seven six and the story is follows Antonio Brown. The wide receivers take that big band had a quote unquote owners mentality that you couldn't say certain things too big band, or it could only cost you your your paycheck. Big band is in many ways unapproachable the Big Ben would say things that. Other players would not be able to say to to people just from a human being perspective. What exactly did Ryan Clark say? This was I thought this was interesting and great insight from a guy not afraid to upset his former team and props to Ryan Clark for that. Here. He is on golick and wingo in this situation. There has been no currency mates. That have come to defensive Ben Rothlisberger. When Antonio Brown kind of took off on him publicly to that's the prize. You. No, it didn't it didn't. I've been very public. Now, I'm a huge fan of been earned some currency with me that not many people can't. And I've said this many times about him though. Leading is not natural forbid, Ben wasn't a natural leader in ways that we think of quarterbacks of teams, right? You know, you see quarterbacks teams, and you think okay? This is the guy that's going to lead by showing us how to work this guy that's going to protect and take care of players publicly, and privately he's going to do those things because that's what natural leaders. Do. That's not been some of these guys have been thrown under the bus during his weekly show. Some of these guys have been talked to in the building and then meetings about anthem protests in ways that quarterbacks or just people in general shouldn't talk to other people without getting punched in the face like those things. And so to say that I'm not that. I'm surprised that nobody came through defense. I'm not. Yes. PF NFL analyst and former Steeler Ryan Clark. You know, it's. What does that tell you? What does that say? I'll tell you what. The way he literally laughed before even answering the question caught my attention. And yes, and he was still he was giving credit to Big Ben and said, plenty of nice things about him. But no Big Ben is not a natural leader. And if you read between the lines big bend can be of jerk..

"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.

"Have the future of Zion Williamson or Trevor Lawrence? I'm judging hoping that with the silence, it was mind blowing. That was I thought I was going to get up. Why Guarico be professional future of Zion? Williamson are Trevor Lawrence be Clemson quarterback. Yes. Mclovin question. Do I run a basketball team or a football team? I know it's a great question. There's the mind-blowing thank a little late on that. Thank you. Thank you. Yes. Paulie? I'm going Williamson. First pick of the draft right now and basketball. Money's guaranteed, and he's less likely to have terrible career ending injuries in the sport a bathwater. Otherwise, no other reason. Okay. Here's another poll. Question was that poll question blowing? It's tough to answer because there's no wrong answer. I don't think I think it goes fifty fifty. I don't know. I don't that's a good poll question. If you go fifty fifty is that a good question? I can't answer. Well, who is more of a sure thing Trevor Lawrence's ion Williams was I n Williamson's paycheck is more of a sure thing. Yeah. That kind of skews everything for me. I'm gonna take his next fifteen years making three hundred fifty million dollars all day, could you tweak it based off their ability to say, which one would you put a week's pay on makes the hall of fame in their sport. I know it's really early that they're eighteen and nineteen. Right. But they seem like sure things as far as they're both will be the first pick of the respective drafts. And that first pick is expected to be a hall of Famer, maybe. It still feels like people aren't sure about John Williamson. Even though we're fascinated by him. They're not sure, you know, how he's going to develop is he gonna add weight is he is he going to be one of those physical freaks like Charles Barkley was in the NBA. He you know, what can we play this Seton? So they played Wake Forest last night. Do played Wake Forest and Zion. Williamson had six three pointers and he had this to say after the game. Doctor.
