Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson

"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.

Predictions for 2019 MLB season - teams from the East

"Lot of trades. Obviously the Eastern Conference so intriguing. I think everyone is jonesing for that second round of the playoffs assuming the Pacers slipped down, and we get the Celtics Sixers raptors bucks. How would you guys like not necessarily against the spread? But the rest of the way what would you predict as will be the top four seeds in the east? And then if you had to pick teams to come out of the east, what would your projections be so I would pick to finish one through four. My prediction would be bucks. Raptors Celtics and Sixers kinda like how they currently are without the Pacers. But I think the raptors are the favorites in my world to come out of the east over the bucks. And I had the Sixers fourth. I think there's something of Butler's going to help. I think there's something off there with some of those guys. And I think the Celtics do figure it out, but they're only like my three seed in my eyes like it is interesting to see how it all plays out. So Preston if you had to predict the four. Top four seeds in the east. Who would you go with? Yeah. The talk for seed, I envisioned the topic Sixers eventually passing the Pacers. Although the peyser they've always played pretty well all year. He went out early in the season. They had really good number this item. And they've quite find since they added watching out to us the buyout option to death. But Boston and Philadelphia your better teams since I I imagine they'll get there. It's you I put money on the raptors after Marcus oh signing it was interesting day before the Sixers were about plus six hundred east. They got the device hair straight. And at the time the raptors were post one sixty two plus one eighty two in the east, but after Tobias Harris and everyone's betting Sixers down to like the plus two twenty five range ended up pushing rockers up anywhere from twenty five to seventy five. And I think the raptors still over all, I know the bucks sports. The season's been phenomenal talked about them and been holding. He's done. But rather still you know, they've been the best team used for seasons in a row. They couldn't beat the Brian. The bronze east anymore. They added quiet Leonard. They Pasquale Ciocci is one of the most improved players. Maybe probably is the most improved. Oh, yeah. Didn't walk that up, Marcus. Oh, good basketball, still whether he's coming up the bench are gonna end up starting for a buck. A he's been coming off the bench know before the all-star break there the team I think gets in their only game out from a walkie anyways. Getting that number one seed and having home court, maybe potentially through the entire Eastern Conference playoffs. So there might come out, especially at the price, and I probably save if I had to pick a second one just because Brad Stevens so good in matchups and just you know, getting every ounce of value in edging advantage. And every game from every matchup. I had to pick a second team next. I'd say Boston. So I go Toronto Boston as far as Eastern Conference finals. And then the bucks, you know, would be third both when Ecksteen inefficient.

"I how much confidence is having the best guy in the court and give you a lot in a playoff series in particular. Yes, if they play Toronto who's the best guy on the court quieter if they play Milwaukee's the best guy on the court. Coli? No, no, non starring Paul. Also loss. Gonesse Philly plays Balsams, the best guy on the court complicated questions. No. It's whoever Boston plays. They about Vakhin. Okay. Okay. On your own politics. Thirty I q points to Haas that we only need it. But go ahead. My problem for Boston is in any of those series. They will not have the best guy on the court might have. They might have through six. They might have to re on any given night can be the best player in the NBA. Not just the best player on that core. Jason Tatum you've seen what he's capable of doing Jalen Brown. And then you have you have guys like Al Horford and Terry Rozier, and Gordon Hayward is starting to get into his own you, you saw them coming off the bench having thirty five and nine, and so I agree with you. But who's the second best player for Toronto style? Our who's the third best player for Toronto? Maybe sitting on the passenger. With us in co is great. But he's not Katie great. He's not in a brand. James great, where it's like, no matter. What you do? You saw when K D And him went head to head. What happened right? Let Katie was like, oh, no. You're very good. You're very than anybody else. Got. I don't know that Brad Stevens as Gray's Brad Stevens is. I don't know that he gets the most out of great player. But can you can you say that Toronto can beat Boston? If Kawhi Leonard has a six for eighteen night. No. So you're telling me that he is going to have to play great for four or five games to do that in a series against Boston where anybody on Boston can have an off night and one of the other guys can go and have twenty five that's one of the questions, Nick. And I have about Brad, Steve we got a lot of confidence in him. We love what he does out of bounds. Deadball stuff. He's excellent mazing. Now, this is the best talent he's ever coached. Now. His brand is not the most talented. Night. John wooden. He made that people talk about UCLA, but he coached great great players. Coach K coaches great great book, there's people like Bobby Knight. And maybe brass even that they are best. When the talent is not elite talent. That's the question that we have seen man are stacked and seeing them struggle. Because last year we wondered what are they going to do when they get these two other superstars back. Does that concern you it concerns me a little bit just because you've seen his linear growth as a coach? And he's been getting better every single Steve Kerr said he's like this is the real MBA when they were dealing with a little bit of drama and a little bit. It'd version you so now here we have Boston, right? This was a team. Everyone hands down was like, oh, Golden State might have it for one or two. But the next team is going to be Boston for three to five after that with the amount of talent that they've accumulated. And so I personally think that Brad Stevens and Boston metoo bigger this out because I don't really like it right now the way they're all answers. Yeah. They looking like they're. Still searching. But understandably I got another question, please. I'm here kyri, Nick, Knight wives, kyri Irving, we've seen them play a couple of times live. I'm a little concerned about his body. He doesn't necessarily look is big. He's never been a muscular guy, but he just looks a little bit smaller. And I just worry about the inconsistencies in his game. There's not a lot of players in the league who have the type of talent he has in our is inconsistent as we've seen with him. What are you seeing with Irving? Well, understand that Kyrie is entering into a new kind of job right now where it's like now all of this talent, he's still the point guard. I know he's in the brass evens offense at which doesn't make him have to create for everyone..

"Cheap high ceiling oh here's another top five pick yeah could break that way too yeah the only thing that could be rail this thing and i don't see this i'm just saying the only thing that could is if ancients and brad stevens left if ancient decided you know what on nowhere no but if he said you know what i've been doing this long enough i've had a great time but i'm gonna go play with my grandkids and i don't think that's going to happen i'm just saying that's the only thing that's why i again you go back four years and it was so important that they made the isaiah thomas straight and they got in the playoffs and they got swept right away i don't necessarily think brad stevens and i don't i don't know this for sure but i don't think brad stevens would have done the brett brown thing i don't think he would have been on a bad team for years i probably would've ocean up a little bit better but i don't think he could have had a talentless team for so long before he went to duke or king indiana my biggest fear is he's going to go to indiana but you you made them relevant and good or at least competitive pretty quickly in his tenure so there's no wonder you know i'd rather be competing for a final four then then in the nba but you've given him good teams and you've added talent every year that he's been here so i'd be shocked if he went anywhere and they've threatened that needle to of being overachievers for like five consecutive years keep happening it's not they've been underdogs in virtually every game of the postseattle it's wild the the only reason they're overachievers this year is because of the two guys who got hurts there and they didn't get this far you'd say they underachieve but how many games can like the vegas line setters watch until they realized this isn't that fluky like like here they're up to right now and by the way the brad stevens has coached against lebron james twice in the playoffs now in his in his short tenure here and they've already won more games in this series than they did in the previous two and i know that that brad stevens gets a lot of credit robert parish says too much.

"And going to lose big because they are not the boston celtics they are not throwing a lot of very capable bodies at lebron james this cavaliers team they don't have marcus morris to go out there and check lebron james backing up all the talk that he brought into this series marcus morris was matched up lebron james thirty nine times on offense the most among many any matchup in game one the cavaliers averaged point nine points per possession when james was matched up on moore's on offense compared to their season average of one point eleven the first game this postseason lebron didn't lead his team outright in scoring all of these things are certainly a credit to the boston celtics and their defense although don't tell that to brad stevens we've got a lot of room to improve from tonight i thought we missed some opportunities to close out the shooter's i saw some of our doubles were bad and i thought offense we got stagnant in their third quarter run and i think we're very alert to the fact that will get a heavyweight punch on tuesday night and it's another great challenge and other great opportunity to experience something for this for this team i mean and i love the job brad stevens is done not even a dressing what seemed like clear shave lebron james just throwing at him with the march madness comments have no doubt there's an immense amount of respect their brad stevens is he is right and wrong at the same time because this is the absolute right assessment for a coach who has to keep his team grounded after a game one where they went out and enjoyed a ton of success who understands how young this team still is despite having a couple of key veterans that can certainly help these guys realize.

"I think brad stevens is paying ben simmons a tremendous compliment because he's saying that you are the reason the sixers are who they are and we are going to everything we can at you while you don't know how to handle it because at some point ben simmons we'll figure this stuff out and we'll tear apart the defensive stuff at the celtics throwing him and he's decided let 'em beat have whatever points he wants and if he wants to crow about it after the game and he wants to put something on instagram whatever that's fine they are purposely attacking ben simmons enforcing the ball out of his hands they throwing some wrinkles at these probably never seen before like for example sometimes there'd be possessions last night where the sixers siblings what have the ball and there'd be fifteen seconds on the shot clock and they wouldn't even be another man around and just for the hell of it the celtics double team then before the ball out of his hands because they they knew if they force the bottom his hands with fourteen seconds on the clock that there wouldn't be able to to do reset the offense fast enough they're just totally throwing stuff at him that he's never seen before as because they know how good he is and you know i i'm expecting him to face adversity as a rookie playing in the playoffs playing in a really difficult road environment for the first time does everybody expect in wish they would've played better of course he was not a good showing but i do not think that it defines ben simmons in the series much less as a player overall i think the celtics are taking advantage of a guy going through something for the first time and i think he'll adapt and he'll show what kind of town he has.

"To recoup some of his value and still get a huge deal out there in my opinion would be for him to sign with the celtics be willing to take a reduced role as an explosive six man off the bench because look at the five teams played for the one thing that he's got here in boston that i think helped bring out the best in isaiah thomas with he had a brilliant coach that knew how to utilize him in knew how to use him better than anybody else in the league because of brad stevens the basketball genius that he is isaiah thomas suddenly found himself open in areas where he wasn't open before he was loaded up with confidence and knew how to go out there and essentially take game over at five foot nine which is unheard of in the nba brad stevens put him in that position brad stevens has done this over and over and over again to guys when you look at the guys that have come through boston since brad stevens got here guys that he has turned into rotational nba players that weren't that beforehand my got he got evan turner seventy five million dollars and look what's happening evan turner since he left the celtics he's not worth even half of that money he's a shadow of the player that he was here in boston brad stevens gets the best out of his guys so are you guys are celtics fans would you guys be excited to bring isaiah thomas back here assuming he gets bought out by the lakers you bring him back to boston he comes off the bench as a sixman you ride him into the playoffs with the understanding that more than likely ninety nine per said you only doing this to help him recoup is valued as he goes into.

"They consistently say that coaching doesn't matter and even this week they went as far as to say that if you could trade brad stevens for first round draft pick you do it maserati said if you could trade it for a high second round draft pick you do it whenever they speak like that it shows me how little they understand the game of basketball because i gotta tell you something here if brad stevens isn't coaching this team couple years back when they got isaiah thomas here and turn that team around from a team that was well out of the playoff picture when i arrived to to a forty win team by the time that season ended that made it to the playoffs if brad stevens wasn't here the following year when they had an eightgame improvement made it for from 40 wins to forty eight wins with jae crowder as your secondbest player if brad stevens wasn't here the following year when he went in he recruited al horford and the team won fifty three games had the best record in the eastern conference and went to the eastern conference finals and was one of three teams left standing last year none of that happens without brad stevens none of it we talked to end they'll car earlier in the program you think if you gave nl that talent that the celtics had last year they are being maximized the way that brad stevens maximize the town of this team i don't think so so the moral of the story here is that the celtics have got themselves and up and coming legendary coach here and they've got themselves set up very nicely for the future when you think about the run that a guy like gregg popovich has had and how long he's been in san antonio and what a fixture he's been there when you have that sort of leadership from the top down it permeates the entire franchise it elevates the entire franchise and it hold everybody in that franchise accountable to a certain standard and that's what you're starting to get here in boston that's what you have with brad stevens brad stevens holds his team accountable each and every game and unfortunately it looks like the celtics going to drop this thing to night in san antonio celtics currently trailing the spurs 105 one of those who with five seconds left and the game.
