"Max money deal so it'll come down him. You can't You can't force him to stay there for his entire career. But you know he's not going anywhere these next several years, and yet you want to make a run during that time and take a shot with him is your key guy. The point you made was outstanding on DH. I didn't even consider that when I was laying out my scenarios on how they handle coaching. That just gives more reason to give Gentry another shot because you're right. He's not really coached the team this year he's been dictated to by how much Zion Williamson can or can't play. So he might have pushed the envelope a couple of times, But he knew Phil for well. He'd immediately be called into the G M's office after game. Say, What? Don't you understand the number 24? That's the maximum number of minutes. He can't play. You can't claim him. How dare you play in 27 minutes. So when you do something like that with your coach, when you dictate terms as much as they probably did with him this year. Well, yeah. You don't turn around and hand him his pink slip on top of that, You know, I think he's going to back his coach and pelicans next year. Yeah. You got a really good point. Thank you for the call. So I'm a big fan. Tell me Appreciate called. Thanks for hanging in there was on hold as I said over half an hour because he called before joining Devaney checked in. And then Yeah, we had a little bit of a short segment because I went As long as I did with Sean Eso when a caller shows that kind of stick to itiveness and loyalty to show Yeah arguments for five minutes on the air without a problem, and he had a good debatable point. It's whether Alvin Gentry is the problem as to why the pelicans In the mix. Some people even forgets and I don't know if I would go this far that getting Zion Williamson in games and on TV. For the restart was something that they heavily considered and how many teams they were going to invite. That they said alright, We must go as far as we have to to make sure Zionism the bubble because he is part of what we're selling is the future of the NBA's going forward from here, which is pretty weak. If you ask me, you should have made that decision solely on the merits now worked out just fine. Other than a couple of teams like the Wizard's BNN. They really had no chance to catch the Nets and Orlando and Orlando in the Nets being locked into their positions at seven and eight. That you knew they were going to play real hard, not questioning other than well, I would even question Kyrie. I quite in something's Kyrie said. But I honestly believe that he's hurt and he couldn't have played anyway. He made his feelings known about whether a shorter shouldn't be playing, but no Kyrie Nok Day other injuries Caris Levert has had to take over. As demand on the Net squad. They had no chance going into the restarts, and they're not gonna have any camp in the first round of playoffs against either Milwaukee and or Toronto, the Nets will be shortly dismissed. I think the magic actually tougher match up going into the playoffs once they get there, but the eight seed actually turned out to be pretty exciting. Even with The pelicans, not in it. I know that the end may have been rooting for the pelicans to make a run and maybe even make a postseason set up. That's not happening. Memphis is presently sitting in the eighth seed Portland's one game back. Phoenix is a game and 1/2 back San Antonio's a game back. The Falcons in 2.5 are not only to far out, but they got 33 teams to jump Portland, Phoenix and San Antonio. So can't that isn't happening. Even Sacramento, a 22 I don't know if they're mathematically eliminated yet, but the game close to it. The race in the West for that playing game has actually turned out to be. Ah, pretty exciting. Um So, uh, no, thank you, too. Tim. From Louisiana with his n ba query, Alright, Heffler and Day and D. J. Dustin Johnson are both on Hole number 18 carefully just tapped in for par to finish a 10. Right now. Dustin Johnson's in 10 and I think he's looking at a birdie putt, which could get him to.

"COVID. Nineteen test but. Positive covid nineteen deaths, test a Lebron or even ad Lebron particular or an injury scout or even if it's game, each team alternates wins then you're in the seventh game and Lebron gets in foul trouble. I like that scenario a lot better for the Portland trailblazers as far as pulling a huge upset then scale contrasted with La. Clippers. Who I think have more talent up and down the roster and more depth in more ways to beat you than the other team from La does the Lakers who are really top-heavy Lebron. Yeah Lebron has to be spectacular for for them to win any series. I think, yes average thirty seven point two game for them to win series I. Don't think Lebron's going get through twenty, two, twenty, three points a game and I just don't think they have enough scoring especially the NBA is is right now where you can't touch anybody and scoring is like through the roof guys just getting open shot after open shot because the lack of physicality on defense I think the. Laker I think Lebron's GonNa have to be aggressive and I wholeheartedly think that he is not playing hard or focus right now because he's saving it for the playoffs his at his age you know with the pandemic and building back up I. totally believe He. He'll be special during the playoffs. But if he's not I don't know who the Lakers can be I just don't know I that Western conference is tough. They probably be Dallas I think it would be Dallas but that western conference is. They're not beating any of those teams unless Lebron is I think averaging? It's gotTa be thirty plus points a game because they just don't have enough firepower. Yeah and the only way the Lakers would play Dallas. Gal is in the conference finals because they'd be on other sides of the bracket Lakers number one seed. Dallas essentially the. Official yet, but they're going to be the seven seats. So the two seven matchup goes on one side of the bracket on the bottom. The one eight goes on the top and those teams won't lead to the finals in to the Western. Conference finals and you and I both think the mavericks will be long gone before then especially if they play the Clippers in the first round, which is the current matchup and the likely matchup scale. Let's go to kind of the other end. We start at the top of the western conference with. Lebron James Now let's go to the bottom at least of the teams remaining in Orlando, talk about the comments you mentioned with the Pelicans Young Stars Zion, Williamson, keep in mind. Zion was injured to start the year. He did not start the year obviously that screwed up not only the Pelicans who got off to a disastrous start. I think there were six and twenty two to begin the year but also a lot of the national TV Games that are featuring Zion, the Pelicans So as not even start, he comes back into the scally plays well, and the team plays better and it looks like they may make a run for. The eighth seed, and then Zion leaves the bubble in Orlando for a family emergency which look at family emergencies are just that they're emergencies. He felt he had to leave hasn't really come out what that was about but that was his choice but I bring that up scale because you know he was missing from the Pelicans for almost two weeks he was gone from the bubble for eight days, and then he had to quarantine when he got back for four more. Scale. Where they twelve or Thirteen Day Absence Zion was. Missing from the Pelicans he was missing from practices and workouts and film sessions and weight room sessions and all that, and here's what Zion Williamson said yesterday in this also from Jordan's excellent article in the athletic. Scale he said quote I play every game to win. I can't really speak personally for my teammates. I, feel they do play every game to win the sense of urgency personally I, think we don't WanNa play like that. You just want to play the game to win anyway I feel like when you play with a sense of urgency, you just start doing stuff that you usually don't do close. Quote from Zion. I'm Scott this interesting for a young player and look and I think these kids are going to be a superstar when he plays, he's off to a great start to his career, but it's interesting to see him at least to some extent call out his teammates especially given the fact that he was out of the Orlando bubble out of action in the bubble for almost two weeks. So he's saying maybe I, I need a little bit of help here. I thought you. WanNa play with a sense of urgency is that am I mistaken by that? I've always the eleven years of playing. Coaches have always used the term we have to play with a sense of urgency. So as he saying our teammates when we play with a sense of urgency, it's not good. What does that mean? Yeah I don't understand it I, think if you watch the game yesterday, the New Orleans Pelicans sacramental kings game where the king scored forty nine points in the first quarter, and then they came out and started the second half with forty points in the third quarter. So so Sacramento, team that hadn't won a game in the bubble and been really struggling eighty nine points in quarter scale I think it's pretty clear that the New Orleans Pelicans weren't playing with a sense of urgency and should have been with more of a sense of urgency especially on the defensive end of the floor. So help me with this one because my experience with young players. Young really good players with nonexistent in my career like we had I got drafted by the nets and Jason Kidd was the best player and he would do all the calling out i..

"City three. Adie. Don't lose Ion. I'm tired of gentry Tire turnovers. Power of bad defense and lack of urgency. The defendants want intrigue on the beat Reporters around you won't defend him. So I would just want your dad's on gentry. Um The way that the publicans airheaded and if you were Tio replace Gentry, who would be a good head coaching candidate for that, and I'll just hang up and listen. I don't know Don't hang up because I want to go back to import with you. First things first. I didn't get you a pretty good coach. I don't think he's great. I put him in the top pamphlet coaches in the N B A. Probably not top 10 somewhere between 10 and 15. If you got 30 head coaches in the N B a right now s O when you got a bad coach when you're down in the bottom third, then you gotta be looking for a replacement. I don't believe country is that So if it were me if I were running the show, I would not necessarily be looking to replace him. Now, if you ask my opinion of what I think New Orleans is going to do, I think they feel the same way with the fact that Zion season was so short circuited by the injury and in the Corona kicked in. I don't think a CZ much improvement and you saw on Brandon Ingram this year that was under Gentry's watch. He was a massive under a keeper with the Lakers. He comes to New Orleans. He's a better pity ups his game. The coach has got to get some credit tonight, so I would not move up country if they decide to It'll come down to what you want to do and how you evaluate your club. So I'm gonna let you do that. Do you believe this is a legitimate I wouldn't even take championship but make the playoffs and win a round or two potential team next year if they change their coach. I think your stage changed their coach because we have seen all year. Is we look Att the essence of style of the D'Antoni origin. Cherie has never gotten to the finals or even really the Motion conference finals. They are a little bit sure, because at least a while I really good offense, but it is our only lead to much great defense. And if you voted the bubble so far, I mean, what's the problem? Then they got blown up by the Clippers. They gave up 1 22 brigade to the spires, and then they give up 1 40 to Sacramento and regulation. So I think like I really rover Kenny Atkinson did with the Mets, even though Kyrie and Katie talked him out of town. I just if they were really sound ball club, and I'm just I'm tired, seeing the turnovers and just The bad decisions and then it's aggravating to see a team put up 1 20 still lose. I mean things and I saw that for way too long. Alright, I got where you're coming from. It sounds like you think the talent is there, and the only problem is the coaching. I think the talent is there, but I don't think the talent is ready. So it comes down to management that being on a hip and you get reminder it down there. If they decide, Listen, are we still a year or two away from making an actual Campion kid pushed If that's the case, then you want to coach Kenny Atkinson, a young guy who's still a young n BA coach who's built up a little bit of a resume of being able to develop young, eh, NBA players. If you say no. Zion is going to play 80 next year, and we're gonna have him up in 30 minutes and with him on the floor and drew place, still playing as well as he is and another step forward by Ingram and Ball advancing his game. We think we could compete with the Lakers and Clippers next year. Well, then you go get yourself a better guy like a calf. Van Gundy Been there done Act. Ah, no title, handle players to a playoff push. I would suggest Here's the order that I would put them in. I would give Gentry another shot choice. One. I'm moving away from Gentry. I go to a guy like Kenny Atkinson, too, And I just don't believe they're ready to take that kind of a jump next year. So a Jeff Van Gundy would not be my choice those into three options. They could ab a young coach, veteran coach or stick with the coach that guide that's the order. I put him in. Yeah. I mean, I don't see them winning next year files or anything like that. Um, and I really apologize for hours. I was handled his. His hands are essentially tied behind. Isn't that right? I mean, that's people upstairs, making the decisions and I think we look, his ion has been out of shape. He's been overweight. Also like I don't think it was talked about a nice but initially we did care. I think it's his PCL. Um, he had values needs Hey, had not need essentially and then media tour say, £5 coming down on bad posture. I mean, you get Terry anyway, so I understand why they've taken the time with them that they have. That I would just I guess I'm just so used to seeing Farr's leave, but I don't want to see another star. Leave. Well, Zion's not going anywhere for years. You know that. And when he gets two free agency they'll offer of made.

"Offense nineteenth and defense, and in Orlando alone two and four twentieth rating of twenty two teams seventeenth an offense in sixteenth and defense an unlike the Djeddai. They don't have any chance at all of going on because they are eliminated from playoff contention incredibly disappointing performance for them in a bubble and in retrospect I really think that their fate was. Written. When Zion Williamson left the bubble for personal reasons and was barely getting back in they clearly struggled to reintegrate him. He was not as good as he was back in the January February timeframe either for whatever reason just have a chance to get back in shape. The whole plan that they had for him really went awry. I'm sure with just he said busy wasn't able to do any basketball conditioning all when he was gone and so. He really didn't have it himself until you know he had some flashes but he's still wasn't that dominant force me is still shooting around fifty percent maybe even a little under from the field even good Games and the defense was atrocious zero blocks or steals in one hundred, four minutes in the bubble the plus minus was really ugly as well, and so there was an aspect of trying to reintegrate him have him be a key part of the team but he was not. A positive player for them and ultimately I believe that sunk them particularly when you consider how much how difficult was to find a rhythm with him always in and out of the water a couple of specific stats from their loss to San Antonio, which basically sealed New Orleans fate the team shot twenty to forty seven in the restricted area in that game and also didn't get to the line as much San Antonio was twenty two to thirty two they're Lonzo Ball Andrew Holiday. The starting backcourt for the Pelicans shot four of twenty two from the field and zero for nine from three in the loss. Yeah. That was really rough JJ redick though his thirteen year personal playoff streak will come to an end. He did not go down without a fight however took a couple of charges tied his season high with thirty one point, eight three pointers. But he was really the only pell. You'd say who came to play ultimately at ended when Alvin Gentry went. To resign at center and you gotTa hope to outscore teams in that alignment, they were unable to do. So Dirk favors actually at least from a plus minus standpoint had one of his better Danes he was actually positive. But when they went to Zion at center, they couldn't come back Demar Derozan closed them out emphatically, they didn't have a plan to deal with them. They didn't have any help at the rim with Ziona at center and they had trailed by seventeen at halftime. Is. All they came out flat and just the defense was absolutely terrible throughout the entire bubble and they deserve to go home frankly with the way that they played I'll give the stats on the team they played on Sunday the Tonio Spurs thirty one and thirty seven for the season Seventeenth Net rating ninth offense twenty, four, th and defense, and in Orlando four to six thousand net rating fourth offense and fourteenth and defense, and a lot of really encouraging things from San Antonio. Those of you who've watched the the NBA cast. We've been doing a few of their games, a Johnson in particular and Derek lights confident shooting though unfortunately, he suffered a knee injury in the game and I haven't heard anything on his status was a knee contusion for him but he was unable to return. He'd been maybe their best player in Orlando here Marta Rosen continues to cook twenty seven points ten of sixteen from the field for him they had no answers for. Him Whatsoever Jerry. EUBANKS has really impressed me as well for this team and yeah, I think they might think of him as potentially a backup center he's certainly should be in the mix the next year he he does a nice job protecting the rim had two blocks. Two steals in this game even has some nice ability to take a couple of dribbles get into a hook shot a little bit if needed had six offensive rebounds in this one is also. I really liked what we've seen from him. Jaka purtill continues to give them good player in eubanks in Pearl Combined for eleven offensive rebounds in this one. So I mean we never would have thought it that the Spurs I mean right now they could be sitting pretty to get into at least the plumbing game if they hadn't had that devastating loss against philly where they gave up the game winning three to shake Milton with that over help from dejount Murray but. The development is the bigger story here for San Antonio, and they have to be quite pleased with that so far sir absolutely, and they still have path in it will require presumably beating both the rockets and the jazz which could be possible. We don't know exactly who on those teams is going to play San Antonio I. Think they'll kind of but dirk white if he's potentially out for some of that, that could be they could be challenged. Yeah. I would say a very positive bubble for San Antonio though it might not be lasting long that'll be I mean it's really so funny right now because the teams that are fighting for the three through six actually feature quite prominently in the. Schedules of the teams fighting for the plan but the teams fighting for the plane have all the incentive in the world to win the teams fighting through six. I think other than Oklahoma City Denver at three Houston at four. UTAH. At six show. Actually be pretty happy with where they are in terms of the matchup and we'll see whether okay, see puts a a wrench in that will actually have their game against. MIAMI, that could be an interesting game at eight eastern on Wednesday also were doing a on NBA League pass three thirty. Pacific. Six thirty, eastern Boston.

"I'm sure you guys are enjoying the pond and all the fishing the bubble life has to offer. But I'm here telling you you were not too long for the bubble because you guys cannot get stops. The other team. Now call me a conspiracy theorists just a little. Because I think this entire regular season slash playoff format was designed for Zion Williamson. I firmly believe the entire plan of keeping the MBA to 22 teams. As opposed to doing some sort of round robin with the playoff teams. And then maybe having them play three high energy type scrimmages before we get into the playoffs. I believe this entire thing was about. We have a star and Zion Williamson and it would be in our best television interest to try to get them into the bubble. I firmly believe that I don't know if that makes me a conspiracy. There's but the writing appeared to be on the wall. It appeared that there there there was nothing. The MBA wanted to do more than have Zion Williams and into the bubble, and I thought that the pelicans wanted to make the playoffs. I thought that was the objective here that going into the bubble was that they wanted to be a play off team. They have a player who scored 13 points in 15 minutes on eight shots. And in limited minutes, they can't find a way to get him into the last four minutes of the game. Now listen, O'Brien win Horse of ESPN, and he said that no one wants to acknowledge it. But Zion Williamson is out of shape and not condition. Enoughto play MBA basketball. I'm not saying that. Bring one horse is right or wrong. I'm sure he has been told this from MBA scouts from the media people. It's a little bit concerning that we heard very similar things resigned at the very beginning of the season. Not to mention his propensity to be injured, but that's neither here nor there. Zion was incapable of playing 20 minutes in an MBA game. Zion plays 20 minutes and Ambien endgame the Pelicans win. It's that simple..

"I'm Jen Lata were presented by progressive insurance and we're talking N ba The post season doesn't start until August 17th But man have some of these games, Roz. Had a playoff feel. And, you know, I'm talking about those games in the West with the teams that are just scratching and clawing and trying to hang on by their fingernails to those final spots. In the conference. Talk to me about what's happening between the 89 seeds out there. I'll say one good thing that one exciting thing happened today. And I guess kind of one set. Sad thing happened. So one exciting thing is, we know for effect that the Western race for the eight seed will come down to a play in Game or game is exciting right? Because those two teams, the one that's in the eight position will have to just win one game out of two just 11 But if that, you know, dark horse team that forced this plan can beat them two times in a row. Then they'll get a scene that's quite compelling and exciting is going to make for what some really dramatic television with or without, you know, without fans with the virtual, But the sad news is that officially today Zion and the Pelicans are out, and it's sad for the N B. A. It's sad for fans. It's sad for ratings, but the pelicans have kind of protecting their acids. Ion played less than that 20 minutes per game on on average, you know, basically and I agree he's got a special body that's probably going to be needed to be protected. Managed minutes managed the exercise managed for the entirety of his career. And why risk that asset for an eight seed? So they're out and right now kind of Where it is is, you know, Grizzlies clinging and hanging on to that eight to that eight spot, But you got the you got the Portland Trail Blazers and Dame leading the way. Ferociously. Just Nick clawing into that play in game He dropped 51 on their heads, Agent Jen. They were talking mess to him, Jen. Had Patrick Beverley Paul George last game against the Clippers were talking mess for you saw the videos falling over laughing Dame was they were in the comments sections on social Media. Dame dropped a quiet 51. It wasn't quite it was loud, loud, 51 on their heads today to get the win continue their playoff run. And then you got the sons who have been just wonderful. A pleasant surprise. I'm happy for Booker and the sons to be doing so well And then the spurs who are just it's you know. What is it? What do they say? Taxes something and pops and taxes. Yeah, death, taxes and pop in the playoffs, and they've been there 22 straight years, and they're going for 23. And you know Don't bet off, Pop. Okay, time out. I'm not all that sad about Zion being out of the postseason Zion and the pelicans. I kind of felt like the MBA did a little bit of like, maneuvering work to get them in there. So it kind of felt a little like poetic justice that they Got bounced. So you're telling me you're a conspiracy theorist in an anarchist? First of all, I don't know that those two things are mutually inclusive. Okay, I do believe in conspiracy theories. I do think the league one of the pelicans in there, right? I mean, they kind of maneuver the playoff situation. The seeing. I'm sorry, not the playoffs, but the teams that were in the bubble. So the pelicans would be in there. We all wanted to see Zion play. Obviously, he was out of minutes restriction, so we didn't get that full feast of Zion. We only got like the little case that you get when you go to like your wedding tasting right? Like I could try a little piece of the state get a bowl thing. That's how I felt watching Zion and the pelicans in this in the seating situation. So I went to the wedding. And then you came home hungry at the That's why I don't even really like They hate you enough. Yeah, right. I'm OK. I'm OK. You're right. Like like he's an asset. They need to protect him, You know? He's an investment. But I'm okay with the pelicans moving on focusing on some of these other teams that clearly are much more fit to be in this postseason run. Yeah, I feel you. You know, the pelicans are spicy and exciting team. You know if they had, we're getting it right. That's a team that can run and gun. They've got a lot of other nice players. Besides just Zion. One bright spot was Brandon Ingram. Most improved player favorite for some Andi, you know, Lonzo Ball was having an excellent season. This year, he was having a career high shooting from three, which is really important because you know that was the critique on him For so long. It's going to help the spacing for all those other players. The fact that he can pull defenders out and and he can build a ball and lob it and push it and run. It was a great combination with the pieces he had. But Alonzo wasn't really great in the bubble. His shooting wasn't three point shooting wasn't great. He wasn't scoring. The defense of the pelicans had pooped out and you had Zion in and out, and eventually it just became a moment of like, Let's protect our asset and it is what it is So to your point there, there are other N BA teams like the Trailblazers who I think if they did get the eight seed Maybe a compelling matchup for the Lakers as CJ and Dame would absolutely make it hard on a guard Lakers team. That is without Avery Bradley Rondo coming back from injury, But you know another team like this if I'm going to say who else has a chance? I'd go with Spurs over sons. The sons are having their 1st 5 game win streak in six years and the Spurs have popping. They've been playoffs 22 years in a row, I would say Don't bet dumping him out. But I would like to see the Trail Blazers in at that eight seed versus the Lakers. Just a few more nights of seating games and then playoffs, baby, eh? NBA playoffs in the bubble Can't wait for that action. You know these guys, they're gonna get ramped up, amped up for that. More ESPN radio coming your way after this. She's Roz. I'm general catcher.

I don't even know if I'd have Tatum in my top three. I think that's a worthy discussion. When Ben Simmons is a very fair person haven't number three. I think Devin Booker could be involved there. Zain Williams and John Moran. But to me, it's not even a debate way. Don't know Zion is going to eat his way out the lead. We don't know if he can stay healthy. I mean, until he decides to say Hey, you know what? I'm going to be a professional. I want hires a chef. I want to be a top condition. I can't. I can't count on him. I can't depend on him. I can't depend on potential. Any result. I need execution. I need a game plan I need I need I need him to dare to be great. You know, we gotta put down that bow boy. I'll tell you what disappointed me and I agree with you. Certainly that the way it is an issue and Mark Jackson's going to join us at 9 10 Eastern doubles breakdown. The MBA. What disappointed me about Zion is just the way they used them. I mean, You know you're so excited that I had to play Bart. He hadn't played in months and months and months. You figure you're going to see more than 12 15 minutes a game. I mean, really, That's what they brought it back in 15 minutes, and in one of his early games, Really, you couldn't give me like down the stretch. Huge moment. Zion's on the bench. I thought that was really disappointing from New Orleans. And you don't think they want to win. You don't think they want to give him that experience. You don't think that the MBA set this whole thing up expanded the field. They could get Zion and given job, Moran the hardest guy, giving them the easiest schedule in the bubble. So we understand what you what happened is Zion didn't cooperate. Cooperate means getting in shape. It means Carmelo at 36 Ahab roll Carmelo is doing the going to break decided tto lose like 10 to £15. It looks like those 10 to £15 that Carmelo loss. Zay a game and you can't put him out there. You have to protect the kid from itself and you'll take the hits and take the bumps and Alvin Gentry to protect him from itself and also protect. Tell me his name and his brand, but what he didn't do And he didn't take care of business. Look at how many of the all stars came back, and this one was well what the break was all about. You're going to see who was a professional and who was just a basketball player in the professionals came back and they were professionals Do they figured out a way to maintain air conditioning? Keep their body weight down, didn't gain. The Kobe 15 like people are saying They made sure that they did what was right. And you can tell when the professionals came back that they were prepared. If they came back to their be prepared to make a run and make sure that they're prepared to be a professional and play at a high level. Zion didn't do that. And sometimes when you're young, you don't understand how to be a professional, and I can turn it to. Ah, guy like Draymond Green, who wasn't a guy who was in tremendous shape when he came in his league who took off like £20 in all seasons. I just don't know if with this shortened season before the restart, Zion can even lose that weight appropriately because a lot harder lose during the season that it is You know when you're odysseys and when you could dedicate time just to stretch shedding pounds? Yeah, I was really, really, really disappointed. The fact that we only had him playing 15 18 20 minutes a game, and not even in crunch time..

"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. Game what's what's what's the number? Is it twenty five if he played twenty-three giving the number all knowing Chris. BUSSARD. Give me the num- always the lowest. Games that someone is played at one rookie of the year is fifty fifty out of eighty two. So yeah. What's that percents? I thought you were out of out of sixty five games. He needed to play like forty. So he's even close I mean J. mccollum bear. I'm looking. The question is where you building around who has better stats who was Full. As.

"Elegans without Zion and the Pelicans with Zion. The pelicans with Zion, despite the fact that he was not in good shape and struggled horribly on defense looks very much like a playoff team. And, frankly, one of the most fun teams toe watching the entire league, if not the single most fun team to watch. There are a lot of ways to tackle this, but the first is like You know, we need to know one's Ion is coming back. We don't quite know that yet. But boy, this team is really, really interesting, and his presence changed them in obvious ways. Right? Like he's a star. He's already a star he walks in is a star. You can give him the ball pretty much anywhere on the floor and let him go one on one. You can use them in lots of different ways on offense. You could post them. You could even run a little pick and roll with him. Which is something we didn't see. You can take it coast to coast and just run people over and tear the backboard down. But more than that, I just felt like something more ephemeral. Something more intangible clicked into place for them. Just it just seemed like everybody was now in The appropriate spot in the hierarchy. There was all of a sudden a little bit more play making on the floor so that all the playmaking responsibilities were more well distributed offensively, they just had a look of a team. That was a having A lot of fun and B I was starting to settle into a groove in terms of like we know how we want to play. We know what our strengths are. Defensively they had a ways to go, Coach. What strikes you about Zion version of the Pelicans? Well, Zion in particular. I mean, you, Hugh hit on all the things that you can do with him, And I think you hit on the intangible part of it. I think just, you know, like we talk with John Moran. Zai on there. There's a different level of confidence with the pelicans team. I mean, I think they're players believe that they're a playoff team and even that they can make some noise in the playoffs. When they have him and all of their guys, But I think what people missed with the pelicans is how rapidly this team was improving even before he came back, so they got off to the six and 20 to start. Where they were 19th in the league offensively and 28th defensively. I mean, they were not even really competitive, OK? I mean, the transition defense was just and it still is unbelievably bad. Yeah, terrible and they give up a lot of points in the paint, and they turn the ball over and just not much good to watch. Then, after that, six and 20 to start in before Zion came back. They had a stretch for a month, middle of December, the middle of January. They go 11 and five before he comes back, and they were ninth offensively and 12 defensively, and then Zion comes back, and they actually were 11th offensively..

Zion leaves NBA bubble for 'urgent' family matter

"All right one to turn to this story from inside the bubble, and it's a big one the Pelicans announcing yesterday the Williamson left the NBA bubble yesterday morning. Because of under undisclosed urgent family medical matter now Williamson intends to return at some point here's this coach Alvin Gentry. Don't know anything right now from the standpoint of. Coming back and you know obviously us. We've discussed supportive. Amina's family and their privacy doing this time right now, you know. We played forty four games without him and. You know we have top stretching, and we also had a stretch for. We won twelve out of sixteen. Without Him, so obviously, he's a great player that we'll miss, but the one thing that we've always talked about even when we went through times is that. Next Man. Marc Spears joins US live from inside the bubble at Disneyworld mark. Seems a little unclear as to why he left. What are you hearing about that about why he left at this point? Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.

Zion Williamson Leaving NBA Bubble For Urgent Family Matter

"We begin today with news that Zion. Williamson has left the NBA bubble. Bubble in Orlando to attend an urgent family medical matter. The New Orleans Pelicans Zion intends to rejoin the team at an unspecified later date. We'll bond your thoughts on Zion leaving and what this could mean in the bigger picture, well Tony Me. The first thing is I hope this urgent family. Medical matter turns in becomes not urgent, and whoever this is, and whatever it is is improved better. So, that's the first thought and my second thought is. This is what people as they get older as they move from Zion's twenty today in their twenties, and thirties and forties is what we do it all the time. This is what deal with and players and coaches, and this is what your life becomes as you get older sadly, but necessarily the difference of course is this pandemic? The difference you you you normally you leave, and these guys have enough wherewithal to fry fly privately. If they want and most times they do and they they come back. Back and they juggle their tension between what is going on with their family member and ball, and they still have to do that, but now it's only you have protocol that you have to answer to, and you could be gone anywhere from say four days to fourteen days depending on things like if you're tested every day while you're gone, so we. We don't know and let's face it. There's twenty two teams in the bubble and not sixteen largely because Zion is one of those six extra teams in the NBA wanted to see him in the postseason. No question about that there's there's no reason on earth for the Washington. Wizards and the Sacramento Kings and whole bunch of these teams to be in this round, Robin and playoff to get into the playoffs in his created right because Zion, Williamson, second only in my opinion to Bron James as a television draw, and they WANNA. See Him in the playoffs. I Echo your statements that we hope that this isn't something traumatic for the family that should go without saying but testing the. The protocol by understanding correctly is you need to test on your own every day? In order that? When you come back, you can spend only four days out instead of fourteen. That's asking a lot of anyone when they've left the bubble to be able to do that to me. The larger question is, do you make exceptions know and to me for people like Zion and Lebron James who try to make an exception, but where where there is contagion, you can't do of course. By the Way Zion has team. Okay, and his team can help in that regard. They may have to send somebody WHO's in charge of testing. They want him air. No, there's no exception is the is the is the virus make an exception? Is the virus go? Lebron is gone, then look a little bit too big and strong for. Let me let me go over here. No, they're not doing that, so there's no exceptions, but you hope one that that this urgent matter becomes less urgent, and to that Zairean could get back quickly. Administer this I mean. The the Pelicans come on David. Griffin is not some dope going to do what they can as a franchise who support him and make sure he has what he needs to transition back to the bubble.

"And. Kristin. It's awesome to have you back. I know last time we were talking a lot about child. Development and Development Ages Zero to two and I know. Your child is getting older How is your child growing impacted your thoughts and ideas? With with child development, and and how they're coming along. While it just confirms what I was saying at first. Any type of blue light or screen time is the number one enemy to children development, and what I mentioned. Is that what people don't understand? Is that these stimulus like your tablet, your cellphone smartphone? BIG-SCREEN TV all those types of devices emit blue light, which is one of the strongest dopamine receptors stimulator. It's so strong in fact that even in adult it can desensitize those receptors very easily. That's why it's addictive. Because when you stop doing it, you feel like crap. You feel depressed because you don't have the dopamine stimulation, the pleasure neurotransmitter that is strong enough to compensate for that going on, and how the Prom is that a child's brain. Is Not fully developed and much more fragile, and a stimulus is just way too strong for their brain to handle. You can actually permanently. Damage, the dopamine receptor, sensitivity and adult. If he becomes desensitized, you can do it what what's called a dopamine fast like you stop basically any type of dopaminergic like a YouGov, are kind of all phones and. Stuff like that. You Stop Smoking. You don't take drugs at similar dopamine and within ten days you can. Basically you regain your sensitivity charts. It's the damage. You're going to have a child with low motivation. IS PRONE TO DEPRESSION ONTO ZION? It's something you want. Also. There's a very strong connection between the efficiency of the dopamine system and learning especially motor learning the reason is that children learn by reward system? So for example your your child is on the floor on. His belly doesn't crawl yet. E C a few on the Florida. You wants to reach, and you will find a way to reach it, and when you reach at the dopaminergic response gives him a big pleasure. Response will motivate him to try again to learn new stuff so learning especially motor learning is driven by the motivation to get that dopaminergic a response, so if you desensitize dopaminergic receptors, motor, learning and learning period will impair like Jaden. When he was like He. He's like twenty one months old now or something like that When he was eighteen, he already knew all of his alphabet, so he knew all the letters. And you could actually spell his name at eighteen months. So that's a pretty good. E- knew something like. One hundred twenty five words and normally at eighteen. When we went to the doctor, they said nobody a child should learn at least three words by the time these months old. The actually wanted one. We went to the doctor for eighteen month checkup. The wanted to do a TV show with us because the is level of a of development adjusts like crazy, but that's when the code Kuban crisis happened, so we didn't do it. Again. I'm not saying that I'm smarter or is exceptional. It's just that the the lower dopaminergic over-stimulation and the fact that both my wife and I are mostly at home, so we can actually plan. Learning experiences sped up development now that led to some issue that we might need to resolve. Is that by over stimulating? We basically became the only source of his development and is. Slightly lacking in social conflict like when he's around, other people will just basically freeze, and it will take him up two or three minutes of. Is the situation to be somewhat comfortable then again. I'm like that so that might be genetic might not be my teaching thing that's. Always, learning frankly do better things, but I think the biggest thing is still. Diminish like balloon exposure as much as possible Apparent is a coach. That's the another child best friend you not is. Is Boss. You're a coach. You should approach like a coach. You should lamb experiences so that the child can learn and try different things, so that's the main thing, and then of course what I'm doing different now is that we are at an age where he needs to become more more autonomous more doing things. Bhai himself so now we find that the EU really loves tractors, so we can actually play with his tractors in San for eight hours straight, so that allows me to do a lot more job, but more work, but that's the next step at first as a coach you you give him as many different experiences to develop his motor skills is absurd skills. Is Memories stuff like that is coordination and more and more advances in needs to be able to do is on staff. Set the activities you wants to do and create is on game, so that's pretty much

"Today chatting to classrooms. He's the managing editor of the magazine, a new magazine that publishes poetry and articles by women in prison today. We're going to be chatting to her. About what life is like for women in Britain's prisons. How them into health is affected by being in prisons, and what life is like at the moment during the covert epidemic. So my interest is like mice, people, you know they're all mental health. Issues in my family have an aunt. WHO's diagnosed bipolar, so we sort of grew up with that. And then. I went to school with Ended up just in a lot of trouble with the criminal justice system and when she was released from. Last time she asked. If I would help and get involved with the which when I look at it I was just delighted to. Because it's really important, it's it's not just for women in prison for women who've got any contact with the criminal justice system, so they could be women on in the community all they could be The partners of men they could be NGOs or other people involved in the criminal justice system went lawyers. Judges actually subscribed to twos. Quite it's quite a broad abroad with limited reach. This is kind of broad question, but what is it is particularly about women how to how women specifically affected by being in the prison system coming out of the issues that they face specifically so I think when you look at. The. Number of women who all incarcerated who we send to present. You have mental health issues vomited vaguely report, but he are half ago and Init- initial justice admits that over eighty percent of women have mental health issues on those mental health issues not treated in women's Prisons Stats men's prisons. They're much lower and then women things. I and depression is compounded, because only one percent of children actually stay in the family home. If mother is sent to prison, I mean that's an alarming statistic, and we need to think about being Zion, if not knowing what's happening to your child in your home and everything. In a while you're in prison where it's remind is usually you know nine times out of ten, a mother, or assist O or upon who can pick up the pieces in the Gulf to the children, but for women very often. They don't have those networks especially when it comes to child care. And women have also leads upon leads of trauma an emotional abuse. Again enormous report that was commissioned by Theresa May. He says that over fifty percent of women. have been the victims of abuse. Emotional or sexual or domestic abuse? In their lives, and of course, imprisoning them white disc, compacting that trauma and adding Les- Upon it, and what about the mental? They received. We'll maybe don't receive. When are actually in prison will? What's really frightening? Is that judges put women in prison thinking that they will get mental health support because you know, there are these massive I mean really enormous mental health contracts over six hundred million pounds. A year is spent on health and mental health. They called the justice health contracts, so these are given to provide his including. National Health Service, foundation trust and private providers like. A and Really. Women just cannot access them they. For example at Drake Hotel which is the prison? In the Midlands is meant to be a fulltime psychologists in the time psychiatrist, I'm case paid to provide that service, but actually that has not been a full time. Psychiatrists death of a two years. They've just not been able to fill the role. And they'll get in training. US is or nasty to on. Day contracts who don't have any commitment to being in that position and that she looking off the the patient doodle is just it's just a job, so we are really concerned about mental health and women's specific health services like menopause connect like.

How a Top NLP Startup is Growing, with Caitlyn Brooksby, Executive Director of PR/Communications at Canary Speech

"Is the executive director of PR and communications at Canary Speech Walking Caitlin. Thanks for being here for having so Canary. Speech was named one of the most promising. Nlp STARTUPS TWO THOUSAND. Nineteen and the company describes itself as being at the intersection of healthcare and technology. Can you tell us a little bit more about what Canary Speech does? And why it is seen as one of the most promising and I'LL BE STARTUPS. Not a great question. You know what I think about. That really takes me back to origin story right. How do we start so five years ago? Our founders Jess Adams in Henry Call. They had been friends for over nearly three decades. Honestly and you know they had lived their careers and they got together and what they wanted to do was set auguste standard in a speech and language industry. They were poised to do it right both. Jeff and Henry. They have a clear the experience in Ashley had the excitement to do it and it really well doctors one question and why light you mentioned because normally talk about speech language industry it really can get techy if you don't really deep which is exciting that fun but what we started with nearest started with was this is how is was humans understand the raw motion in the words that someone speaks. You know when you're talking to your sister or your best friends and you ask how their duty say no good but not you know. There's something different right it's off. And how can we do that as humans? And how you use and what we've done is use machine guided machine learning and to really understand identify conditions. So that really is us so now. Today were six. Hatton's later boss. Us An international. And we've just taken this to a whole new level of redefining speaking language in the healthcare industry and so we talk about healthcare in No the intersection there. That that's really what we're setting out to utilize each language in the healthcare industry and bringing it just that step further so about you know. That's exciting because it does take voice to another level like you said you're not only hearing the words but your understanding you know they should behind what's being said and especially in the healthcare space. That's really important. How are you able to do that? I mean if you can talk about that a little bit. Is there a lot of testing research? They're able to kind us to understand the emotions. Someone's voice yes so really I like to Don frears and so what we've done is we've identified two thousand four hundred fifty eight biomarkers in speech. Okay what is a biomarker? What we're talking about here is like tonal. Quality these aspects of speech but mo up. It's what our body creates. And so we're gonNA find these biomarkers and then we developed bottles that are Z. Specific so they're not person's right cake a rich history of somebody's entire healthcare data and compare it but really what we're duty is a disease that he used mass in really scaled and just be utilized healthcare industry and then he used these models as our speech data so we started out here siege. Five years ago we really were focused on farm street. We were in FDA. Hire me cynical. Trials to this is very controlled environment right and we did this. Because we wanted to be able to cruise our technology and energy to get s right wide able to really tune in for router market or the playstation of it and so we really spent a solid three years of just focusing on these controlled. Studies REALLY AMAZING COPIES. Who wanted to get their to market or just simply to help with a civic disease and so that was really exciting to be a part of that and then we really moved into studies where we from the one hundred group right that were testing to really like in the thousand. Just last month we were able to reach a project that had heard ten thousand over dissipate and that was just exciting me. Mary siege his coming to blow background. Like how is this talk about area of science but what we realized early on was that we need full sets to go into a steadier going for project so what we do is hatcher tissue speech on a person's smart device so we use iphones IPADS android. We use these devices to captures fees. We also talk about the intersection of healthcare technology. What's really exciting is. We decided again early. On though he needed to create that bridge. What we were doing in the healthcare street was connected to what we were going to rate so reduce we include the gold standard Or are the panels which used to go to your doctor if you're dealing with stress I e Rd typically piece of paper that you're asked to allow the pen and paper and rate yourself on Howard layer urge years weeks ago and that's what your position uses to solve. You treats the symptoms that you're dealing with when you work with your physician that you say you could just read their seconds of across cheer South Kearns for the doctors I and made from that based on her stress near Zion Unions. And now we're there which brothels really exciting as a company you've made strides that that's a society scalable. That's Donbass it and resilient school that your physician to news you can use these tests. Don't have to be administrated within the hospital space or in the administrative is like family real and that's a place where is comfortable and you think about what's gone on over the last three or by months with coded ninety it really brings tall houses centerstage in funny. I was seven or eight years ago. I was on one of the committees to bring telehealth mount healthcare in your mouth. Nearly ten years ago I started my career there and is now. I'm embarrassed to say but I used to work for the very first time three months ago. I got a cold sore. I mean I knew it wasn't over ninety but I knew I needed some kind of policy packer. Someone is able to use tell homey bonus. I think that's really going to become the nor so. Yeah that's simple bit of our coaching kind of how I see it. How we see ED signing into healthcare. I agree. I mean we've definitely been using. How much more than we have over time and like I said I love that you all are kind of focusing on this emotional piece. You had mentioned earlier that your company also has multiple patents. Can you share with us? What they are. And why was it important for the company to have patents and do you think that something other voice technology companies should be doing for sure so that we pride ourselves? Moore is coming non-negotiable or Henry Projects. They knew that they wanted language. And in order to do that we had to prove that our technology was novel. And it's really exciting. Because just two weeks ago he had are six patents in the EU and so total right so acid time is for the EU. We were awarded one hundred of our planes which is now is not Donald Law. We were in a meeting with one of our clients. Actually find that I met last lie. Voice show guys and they astor pat they. So what do you think about these pens and looked around set rock-solid on that was exciting? I was excited be in for CEO. So I'll break down. Three strategic areas are Hatton's first one is that selection of the twenty four hundred biomarkers show and that had is called is slipping speech germs for building models for detecting medical conditions. So that patent is discharge behind. It is how we go about these biomarkers and using them within our guy and then the second is the. Pat Huddle is medical assessment based on voice. So there's really strategies around this particular the versus we use these selected biographers to identify. Disease are hunger stations. Each right. We're not to read this verbatim Hans. That's awkward not natural right. We're saying hey is our technology on conversational speech. Something that you and I are right now. And then. The third kind of strategy area is use of this artificial speech on vices in zone patented utilize the techniques together on smart devices. And what would that be your watch or your phone right?

"The bronze started all of this out. Go to like a wrestling analogy right. Like he was faced in the beginning it was a good guy and then he goes to Miami and he becomes a he'll Zion comes into the league and he's been so covered by so many people that there seems to be this level of animosity towards the coverage that makes it feel like he's starting out as a bad guy in some ways to the general public so when the General Public View Zion. Eventually does he being one of the beloved good guys in the NBA or the easy to root against villains of the NBA? He's definitely going to be a good guy he's a face he's built as a face he's pushed as a face but there's a certain section of Fan we're not gonNA take what's been you know being shoved down our throat and they they wanna hate him because of how popular he is when we go to road arenas when Zion comes out the tunnel. There's a hundred fans around there ninety minutes before the game when he comes out cheering for. There's a Duke Jerseys in every arena. We go to now. There's Pelicans gear in every arena. We go to now. I think he's got this kind of childlike lovable personality. That he's always got a smile on his face. I see him being the well like guy throughout his career. So what part of that love for Zion and coverage of Zion? Our obsession with his eye on plays into what is at least being perceived now as a budding rivalry of some sort between Lebron and Zion. I think we're always looking for like who to put. Lebron against but Lebron has been so dominant for so long that his contemporaries kind of they they fall off. So we're looking for are now. Who's the next Lebron? Now and I think Lebron real losses that because everytime he plays against some of these young dudes everything plays against Luca or trey or Zion or jaw. He just wants to remind everybody. Hey guys I'm still the Bron. I think he likes that challenge.

Last night Siahaan had thirty five points but it was Lebron's thirty four point triple double that carried them. Pass the Pelicans on the Road Jalen I. Philip Lebron sends a message Zay on when they play together. Do you think that's fair to say? I believe that a couple of lazy things that have happened via multimedia fans that I'm just going to refute and try not to feed into okay. I Seen Lebron. Brings everybody if you're honest in the League. He'd be unanimous. Mvp THEY ENDED NOBLE ONC-. He leaves the entire NBA in the SIS. Not just when they play against Luca trae young as I am Williamson. He's averaging twenty five points. I guess everyone okay. Anthony Davis wasn't present. Caruso wasn't present any just lost the Memphis tonight before so. It was a game that they needed. That's burden foremost while. These guys are physical anomalies as it relates to their body type in their athleticism and their personalities and their for being such young players. I think a comparison for Zion ship. More about guys that play up front. You've Ron. James is a guy that has perimeter scales. He's a monster. Top of all time in assists as well. Their Games are so vastly different year. Because they're both six. They're to be times where they're standing in front of each other on a basketball court. I almost like comparison of of Zion to a guy like Anthony.

"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.

What has the culture around basketball been like in the city as much as New Orleans is a football town especially since Katrina with the saints having actual success? It's always been strong basketball city. They understand basketball here. They love basketball here. It is a great basketball town town and I think when Zion does get back on the floor though season going to be filled and these fans are gonna be very excited to watch basketball. Will you mentioned they're calling Zion one of one but I'm old enough to remember when they had another player who a lot of people thought was one of one and that was anthony. Davis was drafted first overall back in two thousand twelve. He was supposed to be the guy to save basketball in the city. And we all know how that story ended ended. The team didn't succeed in the playoffs. He wanted out ended up getting traded to Los Angeles and really. I think you know left an entirely a different team in his wake. What sort of roster design? Walk into a much better one that is suited around him than the one. That Anthony Davis left. That was kind of the issue with the whole time and when people see. Ad Catching all these lobs from in finishing reverse like. Oh my God. He's so he'd been doing that for years. People just weren't watching the games down here. He is a phenomenal player but the roster was was not constructed properly around him. The team. mm-hmm is constructed a little bit better around Zion than it was around Anthony Davis and they brought in. Jj Redick they brought in Derry favors. They kept your holiday so that it has has a little bit of that veteran mix but the team is built to grow a little bit better than when it was for eighty so andrew. There was never a question in New Orleans about whether or not Zion would play this season but what about next season and the season after that not whether or not he play but how much basketball Zion will play load. Management has been one of the biggest story lines of the NBA season given the injury concerns. And I understand stand if those are overstated do you think they'll approaches usage differently from how they might use another young player. I think they're going to monitor him. Probably a little bit closer but As long as he's healthy they're gonNA let him play. I don't ever foresee him being a a a thirty eight minute night. Kind of Guy I think they'll they'll keep that in mind. You know he'll he'll play his thirty eight forty minutes sometimes when when they're trying to to really win some good ballgames but they're gonNA monitor minutes. I think moving forward. They're gonNA monitor his play. how He is if he needs a day off they'll give him a day off? Maybe it'll be in practice. Maybe it'll be a game. They understand that Zion Williamson is the long term future of this franchise as much as during during the season during the preseason I should say they've been griffin and Alvin gentry. Liked to talk about how your holiday was was is the face of the franchise right now. They didn't want to try to put too much pressure around Zion. They know what it is. There's a huge hundred sixty something foot billboard outside the arena. Would science picture on it. It wasn't a what's it's not drew's picture. So they know he's the future so they know they have to keep him healthy at all costs. They are trying to protect his body for the long-term so to the public hasn't seen a lot of Zion. But you've been around him. How has he handed all of this? What has he been like in the locker room? He's jokes are the. He's a fun Kim and you've got to remember. He's still nineteen. He's still learning. He's still getting used to this. I remember you know he was talking once within Keel Alexander Walker Walker about like hitting the half court shot and he trying to joke around about what they were going to do with it and Aqeel joke. Hey man we we need to make this a second contract we gotta make this a first contract. Bet The the biggest bet right now is still bet pushups with some of the Pelicans staffers. They'll try to challenge him at the end of his workout with with a certain dunk and the one that has been recently. Recently as a a two steps into a between the legs dunk at the Rim and design has won some and had to. Do you know the staffers after do pushups. He's is law some and they've had to do push ups so he's really just being a kid right now. He's having a lot of fun he he understands. That work is work. But he's making the most out of the situation and Lsu just won the national championship New Orleans sports fans. I'm guessing are in pretty good. Good spirits right. Now what will be like when Zion makes his return. What will the mood be like in the city? It's it's going to be like a volcano erupting. If it wasn't already you know it's been crazy the last couple of days with with Lsu. I'll think a lot of people went to work on Tuesday so so it's going to be pretty crazy. I remember what it was ten years ago when the Saints won the Super Bowl and it just kind of carry for a while through the city so for for you to basically ride that wave of momentum into exile Williamson debut and then they can still make a playoff push. The city's going to react very well to it. I can promise you that. Thanks so much Andrew. Thank you guys coming up is moment for the WNBA ESPN daily covering the greatest sports stories in history.

Here's another story. I want you to know Yesterday was a massive day for women's basketball the WNBA in its players union announced a new collective bargaining agreement. That will change the game and could change women's sports period now if you've been following the WNBA in recent years you know that as viewership and attention have grown the league she has drawn scrutiny for how it pays players when former league MVP Brianna Stewart ruptured her Achilles while playing abroad. which is something a number of stars due to supplement their limited income that criticism intensified now? The new agreement doesn't fix everything but it's a massive win for players as part of the deal the maximum. WNBA salary will rise more than eighty three percent to two hundred fifteen thousand dollars and certain players can make even more the revenue avenue split between players in the league. A major point of contention under the old agreement which players receiving twenty to thirty percent could become a fifty fifty split by twenty twenty one on top of that. The bargain insures MOMS will get paid on maternity leave as well as improving travel conditions and other benefits the Commissioner of the League. Cathy Engelbert called the deal. A big bet on women which I think is a really good way to put because too often when people debate the notion of equal pay. They look the discrepancy in revenue profitability without recognizing that for profit companies invest in ventures. All the time. Not Because of what they've earned or done so far but because of what they could become so this is the WNBA and by extension the NBA which supports the league betting on the women who played a sport believing that if they give them the support they need off the court. The game itself will grow as a result Time and this has been E._S._P._N.. Daily I'll.

"And Lopez covers the New Orleans Pelicans for ESPN Andrew. From the moment. That the Pelicans won the lottery landing the first overall Pick Zion Williamson was almost universally expected to walk in and be the face of the franchise really the face of basketball in the city of New Orleans. What did you think as you're watching the draft? Yes so I'll go back to the lottery with just two weeks. Prior to this the the newspaper I was working for got bought out. I was really in a state of flux personally. And then I remember when that Memphis logo came out of the number to envelop. The second pick will be made by the Memphis Grizzlies number one mic and the two thousand nineteen and it goes to the New Orleans. Pelicans and I realized Oh wait to turn to a buddy of mine who was sitting next to grabbed his arm and I was like Bro. I got a job like somebody. Who's going to hire me for this guy so it all kind of worked out? Because that night I I kind of started started the ball rolling with ESPN and ESPN hired me in August two covers ion and and do all this. It really change a lot in the city. I mean in the city itself. What the day after the they like three thousand or thirty five hundred season ticket packages? It was it was insane. You saw people walking around. It was June and July in New Orleans and you saw people walking around in Pelicans gear. That's saints time that we don't we don't do that down here. Really has changed a lot for Zion. Get down here and it's still hype is still the very real. Even though he hasn't actually played a regular season game yet right you were brought into covers ion you have not been covering Zion. Well not covering him on the court. He's practicing. He's been injured all year. What's his outlook like? Today is actually a very big day for Zaylon because the PELICANS still want to get him a a lot of five on five work. That's a big step in his recovery right now. The problem with that has been. They haven't had a lot of practice time to get there once. He was cleared the five on five work last week. He did it but then the pels had a stretch of five games in eight days where they didn't really get much practice time. You don't get a lot of practice time on the road so today's actually a big day where he's going to get a chance to get back out there and get some five on five work done. We don't know if it's going to be one more if it's going to be two. Who More practices? But we're we're getting close to the end game now. We don't have a date circled but we're getting close to win you. Know he'll finally make his his regular season debut debut. How many times have you said endgame since this is all begun a lot? That's been a fun word for me everywhere. You go in the city right now. Hello everybody wants to ask you. When's ion comeback wins? I on coming back coming back. Alvin Gentry told a story a couple of weeks ago. He's in Walmart and a lady on a scooter walked up to him. It's like hey I see coach. Once I on coming back everybody wants to know when the saints loss on that Sunday in the playoffs I have four or five. I people text me right after. Hey come back tomorrow right like this is going to get better for us as fans and I'm like sorry guys people are just waiting for this debut is As much as they can so enter this all goes back to the preseason. Zion makes his debut against the Atlanta Hawks. He delivers I not just one. But three earth-shattering stays again Joe. That's not normal. The normal shooting over the course of his first four games he averages more than twenty three points shooting seventy one point four percent from the floor floor and then the unthinkable happens breaking news just four days before Zion's NBA career was scheduled to start sign. We'll miss a period of weeks because because of a right knee injury usually when you have a meniscus injury any sort of neander you can kind of point to. Hey it happened at this moment right here. You can't do that with Zion. He doesn't know when he hurt the knee. The pelicans don't know when he heard the knee and that's not just a like a PR spin on it. Nobody nobody knows when he heard this thing. It's very possible. He played at least one or two games with a torn meniscus. I think he had what twenty two. And Ten in that last game against the Spurs and it was only after that game where he kind of went to the training staff and was like. Hey guys Monique on a hertz. Maybe we can get this checked out and they thought it was just a regular routine gene thing they go get the MRI done and they're like. Oh we have an issue here. There was no swelling. He didn't really feel that much pain. It was more like something doesn't feel right in the knee and that's how it kind of started. He was clean when they got him in. preseason they think it happened in preseason. It's also not anything anything that goes back to his time at Duke. There's no lingering things there or or in some and they think it happened in the preseason. They just don't know exactly when so so the news comes out. Everybody's a little bit confused. What happens next before they go to that? Last preseason game in New York the the knicks the PELICANS announce hey he's outright knee soreness and it takes a couple of days before we figure out what is exactly going on and in part of the reason for that was they wanted to get different opinions from different doctors. It took a weekend and then they announce. Hey Hey he's having surgery. He had the surgery this morning. Everything is good. We're looking at a six to eight week timeline. The six to eight week timeline obviously would have been finished in December. And we're still. We're still waiting for that debut. But that's kind of where everything started right there so Andrew. How has the team handled Zion's rehabilitation process so this has been more than it being just about the knee? They have taken the time to look at Zion as a person Zion's body Zion's body type throughout this entire process. That's why you know when you look at six to eight weeks leaks that put us early to mid December but instead you know we're mid-january now or a month after that and we're still waiting. It's because they took their time time with his process. The knee is good. The knee is ready to go but they were working on the kinetic chain of his body. They're working on how much torque he's using. They're working on how he lands. They're working on how he walks and runs differently. Anybody who has been through any any sort of physical therapy knows when you go through. PT Your physical therapist will teach you how to reuse parts of your body. This isn't like Zion was like a toddler learn. They're like trying to teach him how to take his first step. They're tweaking things that he does. They're tweaking how he lands how to put less stress on his body. They're just trying trying to fix everything that they can. So that when he does take the court he has the same explosiveness that we saw before. I appreciate your calm. Rational description of these ion learning how to walk story because when it came out into everybody just about lost their minds. Zion is not your ordinary basketball player. Six seven two hundred eighty five pounds at age nineteen. That's a lot of week to try to slow down. He is built more like a football player. A defensive end and I think people look at him and they see a body type. That's unprecedented and they worry that that this injury could signify longer term problems. Were there any concerns about his body type or durability before he was drafted not so much they knew they were going to have to tweak a couple of things for him to eventually get to the level where he's playing consistently only eighty two games on a high level. He's going to have to make an investment in his body. The much the way Lebron does whether that's a personal chef whether that's having a trainer just for him those things will come along but the Pelicans are confident to to where they didn't think that you know because he six six to eighty five that they we're gonNA have these issues. They realized he was a one of one. That's likes to say a lot. The one of one so they were okay with where he was they. They just knew that they were going to have to have certain things in place to to be able to maintain his body along with him. One comparison that's come up a bit as ions been injured. Andrew Has Been Blake Griffin who is a similarly large strong guy who's had a lot of injuries. He's he missed his entire rookie season after suffering a knee injury David Griffin. GM of the. PELICANS has discussed this. What do you make of that comparison? I mean it's a pretty good one I think it's one of the best out there in terms of his body type any injury coming in his first year obviously blake had a much more more severe injury than what Zion had but just like Blake. Zion generates a lot of Torque in his body he generates he. He's a hard dunker. He's a I mean you just you hear his dunks throughout the arena when he when he throws it down even when he's doing in practice and Blake was a lot. I liked that early in his career now. Blake is still dealing with issues. So they're following a lot of what happened with Blake to make sure that don can go down a slightly different path to where he's going to be a little bit healthier when he's twenty nine thirty thirty one and for them hopefully still an annoyance. PELICANS UNIFORM SO Andrew Zion is out for weeks weeks turn into months and during this time. Well the PELICANS lose a lot of basketball ask ball. Games are at the bottom of the western conference seemingly with nothing to play for. Is there ever any talk in New Orleans of just sittings ion Dan for this season. Never they never had that thought not wants David Griffin is trying to build a culture of winning and they lost a a franchise record thirteen games in a row this year but there was never a thought of of shutting him down if he was healthy enough to play they were going going to play him after that. Thirteen game losing streak. They tweaked a couple of things. Defensively started to win some games. They're not going to just trade off these veterans that they have just because they're going to bring back because they WANNA win basketball games if they get the seat great if they fall short. That's fine too. But they are going to play okay to win games. And that's the kind of thing that Griffin has been Adamant.

"zion" 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..

"Vernacular for Zion Woodson? We can't fully way bigger right right. I never used that one no thirty years. I've been -ffiliated with the League. I haven't heard that way better. The PELICANS have lost not ten nine eleven. Twelve thirteen game remember. There's a lot of people thought this is GonNa be play team. They had a nice collection of Lakers. All a lot of people like you easy Collie you adopted this team lost twelve thirteen in a row. Ever fix militancy there who made the playoffs offs. You do that how you have no idea. I'm worried about this would they don't WanNa hear his Zaza allows you to sit out the year. I don't WanNa hear that I really don't. It's just like you can't if he can play. Let's say in mid January. You're going to have him sit for three months of basketball. Skip all this is not good for him. Jacoby we've talked about this on this program already. Unfortunately I don't believe Zion Williamson ever play two games. He's nineteen years Seoul. Nineteen not twenty nine thirty nine and hasn't played. NBA debut yet. He's on a squad is go onto the lottery this on consecutive losing streak. I hate to bust your bubble and you hope to see him play in February and March and April but the franchise. You don't WanNa them get hurt his day at least look at Joel. He's never gonNA play two games but he's going to be an all star and he can potentially carry a team to a championship. Lured you in what was doing. It was called the process and they was in. Yeah that's what the penalty they lost. artigue daylight is whether to turn around. That's my point here because I think it's good for basketball. Players play the basketball. I remember Paul George hundred them play the end of that. Yes getting ready for the next. Yes that's what I would do was Georgia's built a lot different design and works well the warriors they had a full decade retrospective look back. Look back at the decade. The warriors had Shaun Livingston. Yeah I mean they had a very interesting decade some high dollar chips..

"In baseball if you had a rookie phenom pitcher back in the day they let him one hundred thirty pitches in a start if he shutout going they let him play pitch two hundred fifty innings and then his arm would fall off Dwight gooden when he was twenty years old was one of the best pitchers who ever lived and by the time he was twenty five effectively he was never elite again Zion Williams nowadays when a young pitcher comes up Felix Hernandez or Clayton Kershaw. Let's be careful let's limit the innings limit the pitcher qader and old-timers complain but you could argue whether it works or not the point is that's the era we're now in in basketball you got a guy like Zion Williamson you're not going to do open stuff like playing forty minutes a game eighty two games you gotta be careful and what this will do we'll make sure that even when there's something to play for and there's something on the line the Pelicans ranch is should keep the long-term in mind the cowboys have lost three in a row and White Amari Cooper has an ailing quad injury is Dallas in desperate times maybe are they in need of a boost definitely follow famer and cowboys legend Michael Irvin made it interesting suggestion two one five three the fans it'd be sitting here ride the high horse like we talk we need to e. l. p. right so real I don't care what kind of media relations with the public relations nightmare cold windy here saying I'll L. for alleged sexual misconduct it remains unclear if the League would put Brown on the Commissioner's exempt list welcome in front office insider Louis Riddick how are you doing today those comments they made me chuckle are what makes you chuckle about it because it's just ridiculous at this point look I understand that winning games is paramount and that's what everyone is after in the NFL and that's what you're charged to do and that's what you're after to do at some point in time though integrity and the character of your football team new organization has to count for something for something Antonio has shown that he really doesn't care about those things he may say that he cares about those think in regards to how you conduct yourself when the rubber meets the road so to speak isn't care about those things is he really what would be is he really would be what's best for football team that right now is struggling in terms of its identity in terms of its leadership in terms of how it is ultimately going to end up this season and see really what's best for them overall maybe on the football field at wide receiver there's no question he could help Antonio's uncomfortable he's one of the best wide receivers is not the best why received the NFL right now he probably come in right now Alan catch ten for one fifty it would have on its football team overall with that has come some other things he's already proven he's going to bring other table is that really worth it to you stephen a what do you what do you think do you think the cowboys should sign Antonio Brown riddick you're wrong okay and you and you look at the construct of this team in particular we're right now you tell me who that Alpha is that could keep a guy like Antonio Brown into like Tom Brady the New England page who couldn't even they couldn't keep them on the straight and narrow and even they made the determination that the negatives outweigh the positive I why would you bring your team more you're wrong on two fronts wrong with what you just said and let me explain what because Tom Brady didn't have a problem with Antonio Brown Bill Belichick and I'm told him I'd say he had a problem as well bill belichick am told him to shut up and and he went away from them and tweeted the woman and his own the field Tom Brady in terms of practice it with them in terms of gains she's been Tom Brady is still lamented the fact that he's gone that's point number one point number two I think his here's why here's the biggest reason I think you're wrong about the cowboys because you have Jason Garib c deficiency at the top whether it's what Max says about Jerry Jones whether it's what we all it took about three years ago.

"But the guy that you hear thrown out thrown around is Anthony Davis. I do not have. Zion as good of a prospect is Davis, though, that's not to say he can never be as good as Davis is or anything like that. But partially because I knew how Davis was going to work is offensive game. I think grew earlier than I expected, but Davis had that defensive player that your potential, which I do not see in Zion, and sadly is not all the way come to fruition in New Orleans. So then I would say the next one down, I, I'm kind of hesitant to talk as much about Odin even though I loved Odin more than Karl Anthony towns because of the way that things went for him, you know, like, because it was it was something that I didn't see coming with his body is lower body and everything else like that. But comparing Zion, too towns as prospects, is something that I found fascinating. Yeah. I think clearly at time towns is below Yana, or blow Zion to me, if I had to decide with my guess would be he doesn't make it to being a top-five NBA player because it's just becoming more of a parameter oriented league in without the. Jump shot. How many shots can he create? I don't think he's going to be a massive defensive difference, regular thinking you'd be totally solid there. But my guess would be he doesn't make an all defense team in his career could very easily be ROY in there. But it would he would be an even more rare archetype to do that than Draymond green and dream on people people have been looking for the next Draymond green for a long time, pretty much every shorter than average power forward with decent feet. Can thank my green for people thinking that they can that the guy's really good defensively. I think I can't be that. But nonetheless, drove on just has prouder natural intimation in hands and wingspan. So expect him to get to that level. I don't think is fair. And then because I don't expect him to develop a jump shot. That's really a threat, especially off the dribble and posting up. It's just kinda limited the impact that attritional big can have it's been a long, long time since a traditional pig has been in the mix for best player in the NBA or even a top five player you'll maybe Griffin with at that point for a year or two Dwight Howard. Powered, you'd have to go back to that level. K G, O, eight Tim Duncan and a lot of those guys a lot more defensive ability than Zion..

"Have to worry as much about getting blown by sin. They'll, they'll be no perfect match for him. But a small you just have to double team. You've no chance of stopping them at all at the small a big at least he's, he's huge. He can put his body on them a little bitty science. Gotta shoot over for me doesn't have really like much of a float or a hook shot game. What concerns me there is if Zion, let's say his catch is elbow or beyond I worry about I worry about the big defending in that much space. So that's gonna be that's gonna be an interesting. Interesting thing for him. I could see it both ways. It's also depend on where his game goes handle shot all that guy said, but it's I I'm fascinated with that, all of those matchups challenging it's going to be it's going to be blast. I mean, there's lots of figure out so feel the things I wanted to talk about with scien- just in the overall picture here, the comps I think are useful here because he's such unique player and. And looking at how those guys were used what they ended up being in the league. So here here, a few comps that I have form some on the higher ends or on the Lauren Blake Griffin when he first came out, I think is a pretty good conflict didn't really have much of a jump shot. What's over as we noted earlier, he's, he really developed one, but that was kind of an outlier for him to improve that much of your remember he was a fifty percent free throw shooter, believed when he was coming up, but it didn't have like a great jump hook game out, actually say that Zion is like a little bit more touch than him around the rim. But they're both pretty good passers for their size Zion much better than Blake was when he came up, Blake kind of evolved into being that as time went on, and obviously Blake it, and absolutely nuclear dunker. I would say, like in terms of his ability to dunk on people even more of a dunker than Zion. Zion probably been more of a pogo stick on the offensive glass in Zion. You know, Blake Griffin was like, two forty five to fifty you know, just your normal pretty jacked NBA power Ford, not to eighty five just can really just plod through guys. So that's one what do you think of that calm? I like it and it's so hard sometimes, and this will come up. I want to talk a little bit about the historical context with Zion of remembering where guys were that this is not like I don't think you're comparing him to Blake Griffin now or Blake Griffin at twenty five it's Blake Griffin when he came out Oklahoma Zion, also much more defensive potential..

"Has been scored down goes Zion Carolina's going the other way, but pay no attention to that. What's really important happening on the other free throw line? Just thirty six seconds into the game. Everyone watching in disbelief watch the left shoe of Zion. Williamson just explode, but it's the right knee that he is holding and everyone could see the shoe the reaction shots remarkable from around the arena and you'll see them in a moment. Again. There's I on going down this President Obama, and you can clearly see the words his shoe broke. And so was it just the shoot. Was there a significant injury? Those were the questions of the moment as I left the floor. The conversation would come afterward. The new stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. It puts everyone in. Estate of trying to figure it out while while you're playing an outstanding team. That's not a good situation. I mean, I was hoping so can't really. Actually, I mean, I'm just gonna pray matured Hopi joke. I thought it was gonna turn shoes and get out there. But. See he wasn't going to come back game lose Tucker. I was wearing Nike shoes. As you saw. Here's a statement from Nike. We are obviously concerned what to wish Ziona speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. Also working literally all night has been our Maria Taylor who did the game from the sideline last night and hasn't had slept. She joins us bright and early this morning. What is the very latest as of this moment Maria on Zion? Well, as of right now, greenie Duke basketball, they do have a practice at one forty five this afternoon. So we still haven't received word on how severe the injury is designed. But I was speaking to one Duke official after the game. And he did say that doctors are very optimistic, and I was told to that afterwards when coach K was addressing the team. He was very positive in his feedback to the guys and after speaking to RJ Barrett and cameras they all said, it was difficult making adjustments on the fly, but they're praying for their brother for their teammate. And hoping that he can make it back as soon as possible. I heard you on sportscenter a little while ago. And I love you to share some of this with our audience about the feeling that Zion has for his teammates, and they in return for him because so much of the conversation this morning. We'll be even if he's healthy enough to continue playing should he and I know you've got a very strong feeling about that last night. Well, I do greenie because zions a guy that loves to compete, and he he loves this team. And that's one thing that RJ was telling me even after he put the phone down. And we're still talking about him. He said, that's that's my brother like we love being on the court together. And I think it's important to know because we think of these guys as five stars that are, you know, all about themselves all the time. But for everything that I've seen from Zion. He is also about this team in wanting to make sure that they're successful. And I could even tell I was kind of in the corner while he was trying to see if he could get back on the court, and he kept jogging back and forth and testing out that knee, and you could tell like he wanted to be out there. And right now, you know, his teammates all of the concern that was on their face in the locker room stuck with me. They all made sure that they talked to them before they did media after the game. I mean, they're concerned was really with him, and whether or not he would be able to be okay to to be healthy at some point this season, and obviously for his future. But these are guys that get along. And that's something that should not go on notice. While we tell the story and obviously talk about whether or not he will continue to play the rest of the season. Now. Again, show practice early in the afternoon, if as any information between now, and then we know you will bring it to us Maria will be with us all morning long. Meanwhile, let's show you what happened in the rest of the game, which almost felt like an afterthought..
