Sixers Under Pressure Going Into Game 6

"Which roh team is under the most pressure and tonight's game six sixers in atlanta or jazz in la. I think it's the sixers because of the fact that they've had two big leads in this series already and a lot of fans in philly believe it should have never gotten to a game six to begin with and oh by the way doc rivers as a head coach in multiple places now has blown significant leads in the postseason either. A three one series lead or large leads twenty six points. Twenty five points in playoff games and lost. That's why i believe. Most of the pressure is centered there in philadelphia and it is those collapses that people remember especially in philly but doc rivers said yeah those losses supposed to hurt us like this and they should. That's what i told our guys like air hurt And then you get back to film and you work out that the agency the things did do And you build them back up thrown back out there and they'll be ready. They proved to be a resilient group. so i have no reason to believe it will get for but he has to believe that he has to be hopeful he has to instill that same level confidence in his players even if they are having doubt right now based on the fact that they've had big leads in the last two games only to lose them to the hawks and now they have to go on the road to off elimination against trae young company the pressures on philly collectively as a team in maybe specifically on doc rivers

Nebraska is one of the eight states where those changes take effect tomorrow. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is here now to talk more about that. Welcome to the program. Thank you very much. I appreciate you having me on just so people have some context here. The unemployment rate in your state has been dropping for more than a year. It's tied for lowest in the nation at 2.8%. So what's the rush to end these benefits now? Why not just let them expire? Well, we are essentially letting them expire by ending our emergency here in Nebraska. So what we've worked while you're cutting it off sooner than when they would X set to expire, So they're set to expire in September. You're doing it now, which means 15,000. Nebraskans will lose benefits tomorrow. Yes, sure. As you pointed out, we had the lowest unemployment rate in the country and we have related for the last year and a half.

"He came back to the United States and he wrote Uh, in a fairly popular left wing, progressive, so called magazine. Called the New Republic. Then he wrote in the New Republic. How impressive Russia's educational system was how it was unifying the country. How the instruction was the same from one classroom to the other. How the instruction had a purpose, not just to learn language and science and mathematics and so forth. But the support the commune that is the state that was being developed. Of course by Stalin. And he was the man who had the greatest influence in American education to this day. To this day, and journalists like Jay Rosen, who is a professor out of New York and teaches journalism and others. Point to John Dewey is the great hero. John Dewey, who destroyed American Education opened the door wide to what's taking place. Today. He is the founding father of what's taking place today. As people will learn again when they read the book, and so again, your experience in the Soviet Union is very, very important. People need to understand. That we need to listen to people like Tatiana. They lived under the iron fist on the other side of the Iron Curtain. And they see similarities and the reason they see similarities is because there are similarities. And the fact that the American media has let down the American people. For more than a decade, and especially now. Is the sort of thing that always happens because when push comes to shove The media. The American media is weak. Predictable. Ideological Thank you for your call, my friend. Excellent. I'll be right back.

"Depression in this country. The Democrats know it. Keep something in mind. The influence of the American Marxist on the Democrat Party is significant.

They're never very clear about what it is, but it doesn't really matter. Any important storm critical race theory, critical immigration theory Critical trends theory. I call them those things and that's fine. And so for them. It's a win win. But they have to also control the political system. That's precisely why They want to control the Supreme Court. I don't know why they pretty much control it anyway. You can see. Tony Barrett Kavanagh. They've already buckled. John Roberts wants to be the next, uh Chief Justice Warren, So that's three.

It could be pretty embarrassing for government officials the hell were they talking to those people for? Finally, he says. Listen to this one. The Chinese government gained access to a CIA communication system leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who are working within the CIA working with the CIA. Excuse me. How did they get that if that's true? Are there people in our intelligence community that have been compromised? That's kind of an important question. You're probably saying, why aren't I hearing about that on the news?

Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler.

Sadly, folks, one of the things that's always puzzled me. One of these anomalies of the election process is elections that matter. More people vote less and elections that matter. Less people vote more. It's bizarre, but but think about it. I'm not making this up. Your vote as a function of pure mathematics. Is more impactful and means more at the local level. You vote in your H O A. You vote in your local school board. You're one of 305 100. Maybe 5000 votes.

David andrews there senator guy who's started every game for the last few years being out potentially intially for the season with the very scary blood clots in his lungs but the x. factor for them is not that dissimilar than the x factor for them that we saw early on and last season joined the team and that's josh gordon. Josh gordon a thought last week when i was out you guys were outstanding and talking about josh gordon and his story but josh gordon the football player himself when he was on the field for new england. I won't be able to understand how productive he was. Only does shawn jackson average more yards per catch last year than josh gordon at eighteen point zero the guys that in the league the full list of guys in the league that has many receiving yards yards is josh gordon and averaged even sixteen yards per catch and again he was eighteen. That's tyler lockett to hilton tyreek hill. Mike evans sean jackson axon. Those are a short list of some of your best deep threats in football. There was a reason that even after last year when josh had another unfortunate issue issue. The patriots held onto his rights. The patriots supported him hoping to get him back into the fold because if josh gordon can be that credible <music> outside threat that he was once in brady got on the same page last year that adds a totally different dynamic to the offense even if the offense wants to be run oriented anted even if vitamins going to get.

That is a work intensive position <hes> stories to start your morning this morning. Julio jones asked promises getting paid. The falcons star receiver said he wouldn't hold out this season because team owner arthur blank. Thank promise they'd get a deal done now. Blankets holding true to that saying deal with julio will be done before week one see. How important is it for the falcons to get this done. Oh they're going to get it done. I talked to julio a few weeks ago at the hall of fame game mattie is they're ready for the season. Julio said i'm patient so it might not not be before the first game but him mr blank have worked out a little situation but mr blaine got plenty of money run out of breath before arthur blank runs out of money and this is the the ideal player owner relationship where you have a player who the team went out and got if you remember them. They traded a bunch to move all the way up in the top five draft julio. He's been paid early every time he's outplayed his contract every time and now that he has faith. It's gonna get done so he's. He's a huge drawl in that region not only play high school football close their airplanes college football there at alabama and in atlanta it is s._e._c. crazy about college football if they love their falcons so he's a big draw there for or mr blake all right moving on washington left tackle trent williams remains a hold out an has asked to be traded head coach. Jay gruden very strongly doubts that williams will actually really be traded nick. How do you think this plays out. There are few teams across the n._f._l. Maybe most notably the houston texans that if they haven't called up and tried to pry him away. I don't know what they're doing and i don't know what washington is doing being seemingly so obstreperous. If you will about the the refusal to trade i wouldn't think of another word i apologize belligerent think of another word. I apologize soon as i said as soon as i said loyd. Is this hold hold on a second. Why is he. This isn't just about money. He thinks that he had a legitimate medical misdiagnosis. Yeah he's made a bunch of money. He's a proud man and he's saying i will not play for you so i don't think he's gonna lose staring contest. Take what you can get for trent williams. You'll be happy houston.

"The player he once was but still had something left and said ah i can keep playing football. I'm gonna keep playing football as long as i possibly can so i get why zeke would want to do this and in his interview with without saying it i think he is saying he's acknowledging. Some of the point stephen jerry of made which is there are some benefits to being a dallas cowboy spe particularly being a lifelong dallas cowboy. Oh boy that other franchises can offer you. It's why chris talks about all the time troy emmett and michael irvin all still make their homes in dallas that the cachet ashtray of that organization and being considered a lifelong cowboy even if the into your career you catch on somewhere else like nobody cares the jerry rice played for the seahawks seahawks and the raiders and think of him as a san francisco. Nobody thinks of chris carter's anything other than the eagle briefly in the beginning but a viking people think of you as a viking even though you played moment with the dolphins with that new helmet and everybody else in my body workout but nobody in so you see a hutu key malaysia play for the rock. It's not the raptors even though technically he did so the last couple of years of career notwithstanding i do believe zeke wants to be a dallas cowboy through the prime and after the prime of his career and i think that's community knows what the dallas cowboys offer him as far as a home for the next couple years but i'm sure jerry jones also knows when he gets from zeke. This is as we call him a once in a lifetime running back. I mean one of these really really great athletes. Who you know was going to deliver. Who you know has been a winner for you. How much is this jerry's pride. He knows post football. You talk about how much he knows the game. He knows how much he needs him. Is there a little bit of pride that sort of working its way in here. You don't become a multi-billionaire without some some type of pry but jerry will tell you. I love the game at the beginning of the day in the end of the game. He loves football. It's been part of his blood for a long long time and he feels like he understands football but the one t- understands is the product and the product. He's got out there on the field. He realized the best player is still in mexico when their chances they want the hostal embody already trophy. They have no chances without ezekiel. Jerry knows that he hadn't expressed that verbally but he knows that so. I believe that a deal will get worked out because because jerry but jerry is a tough tough negotiator and he's willing to stare down anyone and that's what they're going to have a showdown staredown you so you know there in dallas and real quick wanna revisit something you said yesterday you put basically one week from today as the drop dead date for this to get done for zeke to be able to play week one correct that it's not done by tuesday of the first week of the season he wouldn't be able to play week one gin and i were discussing this before the show can use explain explain to the audience again why you think even that position or running back couldn't sign on a thursday night and play that sunday from a game plan standpoint..

"And say i'm gonna choose to take a healthier approach to this. How much change is now with the direction that this team moves in because nick put played out the timeline august. I he tells jim irsay right. I told peter your king on august fourth. I'm going to be there week one and august nineteenth he tells them so. It's not a ton of time for the organization to get jacoby set up and running but how much changes if you're the head coach of team where you had one plan where your your team is in conversation for super bowl talk and now you're in a completely different print direction how much has to get changed and how quickly well. This is a unique situation because he hasn't played so it's been jacoby percents team and there is the value value of of jacoby having a whole season as a starter so through o._t._a.'s through training camp. It's been percents. The operation been all with percents so you've got that body of work that you can build on in terms of of of approaching and and how dramatically you're gonna have to change the system. It's pretty dramatic because you've got to make make things work for jacoby. You've got to give jacoby everything that he needs to be successful and there's a big part of that playbook that was luck the majority any of his what does andrew like now that has to go away and it it's what does jacoby like and a point that you made earlier just about the the young in part of of andrew luck's career. I think this is always the debate that we have about whether you should play a rookie or not play rookie because they don't know how to protect themselves all the time so so even got a guy like kyla murray behind an offensive line that that's you know struggling. He's young and he's going to take chances because he's young. That's gonna lead to certain hits and this may be a topic for a later time but it's maturing process for those young quarterbacks. That's part of this whole discussion in and why we got here as well. They haven't been able to do a fool off season study this off season. You know what they studied. How well it offensive line was. How can i add a running. How can we help that defense now. They don't have that opportunity because their new quarterback. They have a lot of confidence in them but they didn't get a chance to build a breakdown everything because he didn't play much last year so now now. How do they go back to seventeen find the things that worked for them so for me. This is going to be an extended training camp four to six weeks finding out what jacoby likes what he wants to do best how to get the team around that as far as offense of line and running attack before they moved forward. I still believe that they are a playoff team because this is a talented talented well did roster that defensive front can come up and be more consistent with their linebackers in their second. <hes> secondary did i believe is underrated and we'll be better this season yeah. This is the legitimate playoff team sure andrew. Luck is waking up this morning going wait what happened this weekend. I did what he's got a little bit now. Coach stick around coming up or the steelers better.

I delivering <hes> what looks old firm and rubber football strike zone stack baseball descended soccer. She plays with the u._s. Women's national team. They're taking on portugal at seven eastern tomorrow. On f s one i think one of the teams actually that they're not releasing the name of it called and wanted her to come in tomorrow night so quick absolutely fourth preseason game she can't because of this was a legit excuse but no. She says she might consider training for it and trying out legitimately in two thousand twenty man or woman very hard to make an n._f._l. Team aged thirty eight which is what she would be but man and that was for a kicker and that fifty five yard field that was through the skinny uprights like the the the uprights that they narrow for it was raining kenny upright. She does have the league but can she do it under the pressure in the elements and she's got a short and upper approach field goal kickers can only take three steps because the take more than that. They're going to block it in this. She took five steps so five steps help you kick it longer. She has to be a little quicker because you get it up with that same distance but definitely definitely should get an opportunity and that'd be great. That'd be unbelievable time for stories start parade but you can't be five steps.

The only thing we can't simulate is the contact. Seattle art is to stay in football. Football shape not just shape shape. It's it's impossible. I mean you can run on treadmills. You can get trainers and everything but the thing that you can't do you can't assimilate the two a day practices and the body contact running with people avoiding people with people on your body. You can't simulate that yeah. You can push a sled. You can put gordon harness but human interaction. No you can't simulate that marshall but they're doing the right thing. Marshall faulk is a good guy for him to be around to get him ready but he node owed. You need a couple of games before you start getting used to getting your body built up for that contract. This is a position in zeke's at an age that i do think that he's going to win. He does return to the cowboys. I don't think falen conditioning tests. I don't think that his he's going to be slower but to chris's point marshall fox point he's going to have been training by himself has opposed to as opposed to having people pull him to the ground so that will of course take a bit of an unjust we can't take for granted practices import and that's why we have more injuries to the less contact with this new era of flares. You start seeing more and more injuries. Their bodies are not ready to stay.

There's a lot that do that not only in the n._f._l.

You just didn't love football and i think when he walked away. We were kinda surprised well. How do you not love the rookies rookies on one end of the spectrum. I think grunk deed and does love football but he got to appoint to where he didn't need it anymore so i think there's different syrup people that we'll play until multiple teams until they get caught then. Go try out again. There's ricky williams on the other end of the spectrum not sure exactly where grunk falls but he clearly at the moment feels like he got what he came here. I think ricky williams love football ricky. Williams love team sports ricky. Williams couldn't deal with being in society. He had he has yes. That was his biggest problem. My first day i played my last year with the dolphins. I ricky williams man. He was a pleasure as a teammate. No absolutely so no there's different various reasons but if he could have dealt with it in controlled is anxiety socially.

"The other part that i took away from that was he mentioned that after the super bowl he was in tears two years of joy but out of pain and that for the month following the super bowl he had trouble sleeping more than twenty minutes getting out of bed and it was because of a hit that i feel like i've seen rob gronkowski take a hundred times in his career. This didn't seem like any out of the ordinary play. I mean that's a bad hit on his lower collegue but i feel like we have seen grunk. Take that type of punishment. I feel like you see that type of punishment regularly in an n._f._l. Game and the reason that i it it stuck out to me was because i think the average fan the viewer has a hard time realizing even a play like that the level of brutality the lasting impact the level of damage can do so tell people because he did describe that they had to actually take out a thousand milliliters of blood blood from just from that one hit. I'm over the course of a couple of months. It just drained as you're describing any talked about how he had trouble for weeks sleeping more than twenty minutes at a time and while on replay you see it. He gets hit really solidly writing this quad but it didn't that wasn't a hit that during the game i think anyone said oh my god is he gonna come back on the field and he of course continued to play and continued to go out and make the single biggest play of that game so i understand why for for gronk if after winning another super bowl you are in pain instead of enjoy why you might say this isn't fun for me anymore and i don't think think it's coincidental that we've now in the last five years had four separate guys who at different times in their rookie contracts were considered potential ensure future all timers in patrick willis calvin johnson rob gronkowski and andrew luck all said you know what at least for the time being saying. I got what i came here for. I got enough money enough memories enough of the two combined that i can now step away because is if you are that caliber of player by the time you get to your second contract. You do have the type of financial security that gives you the ability then if you have lost the passion or a football is no longer fun for you that you can move on so. I don't think it's going to be a long list of guys but i don't don't think that andrew luck and gronk and those guys are going to be the end of players who feel like wow. Their careers ended four or five years earlier than we would expect one thing we can't do. We can't assume that all these football players love football. There's a difference in loving football in love and the benefits football and typically when you get to a certain mark if you get to that mark financially you can walk away from the game so to say that all these guys the football was not out of them. I've been too many locker rooms is it i know it varies into degrees that people love football and how much they wanna win and how much they want to sacrifice and you can believe with the amount of money. That's in the game. You're not we'll see in the n._b._a. Because you can play in the n._b._a.

"The last couple years when they have had tied for the second. Most wins tied tied for the most wins in the n._f._l. They've had a league average defense to go along with. Chris said always a great offense withdrew breezy middle. The offense changed a bit with ingram and camara mirror being a more run central goffin's. I do think this saints team has an argument. That is the most complete team in the n._f._l. We have seen in that dome with that coach coach and that quarterback if they have a top fifteen defense there in the game for a super bowl if they have a top ten deep and they can become super bowl favorites if they get enough pass rushers off the edge. They've spent a big investment on their secondary as far as being able to play nickel having three competent corners pass rushers plus that corner play thing for some turnovers turnovers and play well in a very tough division. I trust the offense as much as any offense in the n._f._c. All right you mentioned the defense. You mentioned the tight ends. No one's worried about ingram not being there does that not is now in fact during that in the reason from a formation standpoint kamar carried the bar a lot more and more touches seventy four touches in year number two that progression russian. He's always been the specialty back. He's a little undersized slightly built. I don't want to see him carried the ball three hundred times so i believe also latavius murray comes over as a free agent a big back from minnesota should be able to assume some of that pounding so watch how many times he touches the ball kenny be sufficient shen as an undersized running back when you bump up those touches but i believe from scheme standpoint. They're going to try to duplicate what they did. The first eleven weeks of the season drew brees. I eleven weeks best q._b._r. In the n._f._l. Struggle in the plum week twelve through the playoffs his around mill to pack.

"That's not a short term fix. I don't know if they'll be that that good this year but Dobie one the best offensive line so they have everything in place for him to be great now. Once they started playing great final ten weeks of the year he was sacked eight times. Sometimes you don't want a lot of games with any quarterback. Get sank less than once per game and when you mentioned the skill position guys you say all the time he looked your wide receiving corps like a basketball team and they got <music> EIB Rogers Centre. They brought Devin funchess. It's your power forward T. Y.. Hilton Your Point Guard and the guy you like Peres Campbell out of Ohio state can be that wing if you will can be a guy who can run the football I get the ball out of the deal but also gives them some size in some athleticism on the wide receiving corps so T._Y.'s been I think he's made the absolute most of his abilities up to this point in his career and he's had a great deep ball connection with luck but funches impairs Campbell one or both of those two. I should add a more reliable possession receiver and let's not forget the awful start. They got off to lash frank right as a rookie coach those weeks one through three. They were bad weeks four. Do Seventeen Angeles those thirty four touchdown passes only Patty Mahomes who had thirty seven right through weeks four through seventeen people forget then he he was exceptional team. I wouldn't be surprised a lot of people pick them. They're super bowl. Pick all right. Let's take a break coming up this guy well. The Saints <music> ever get over losing the N._F._C. title game dusty honey. That's next on first. Let's move on saints is now the two thousand eighteen season ended in controversial fashion in the N._F._C. title game against the Rams and according to former saints running back Mark Ingram. That's still a bitter pill L. to swallow. He said that is something that no one on our team. No one in our organization will ever get over that. It's tough when you get to that point. Basically one play from the Super Bowl. There's no justifying that there's no comfort in that. See what are the saints have to to break through and win. The Super Bowl for the last couple of years have been tough two years ago the Miracle Minneapolis in the divisional round. They have that game one. They got defend hail. Mary knocked doc the ball down. Just oh that's all they got to build. Do Stefan digs takes it in vikings going to lose to the eagles. They're going to win the Super Bowl then last. You think you can't top that Oh they did. They got homefield advantage. They're playing the rams. They got that was a great football game. That was destroyed by controversial call that changed the game. They say well. You don't know if they're going to know. We don't know that but you know that a bad call was allowed to continue with shitting been there now that they've changed the rules. That's how obvious it was. It's to the N._F._l.. Can they recover you can never go back. You think Tom Brady right now. You've got sixty rolls right. Tell me could he have had nine certainly and breath and that's the way he thinks that's one of the things you like me. And why is it out there because of those missed opportunities man. I got close twice two times times in three years. Were in the N._F._C. Championship game. Neither time that I take it for granted that you know something. This is going to happen all the time. I don't think they're going to recover because drew brees you look at the quarterbacks and the teams in the N._f._c. man you gotta run that Gauntlet again and are they S. talented. I think their offense might have a little more variation than they have and jared cook as a tight end. I believe he's going to have a unbelievable season with drew breeze drew brees the best quarterback that that he's ever played with in his ability to create mismatches and overall speed. I believe they take huge advantage of no. You don't go backwards because even drew brees was to go on to win another sue boat. He's going to look back and be like man..

"What do you do when you don't have the bowl who is going to have the ball in their hands late in games now with redundancy though means also there is something where where they are weak they are both week meaning? Neither one of these guys scrape right playmaker. Neither one of these guys ever has been elite at getting other teammates involved. They've been elite defense and elite at scorn from all three levels turned into elite scores at all three levels so I think Paul George is an excellent fit next nick suggest about anyone in quite Leonard's excellent fit next to literally anyone and so of course they fit well together but because of the similarities that's the only reason that I think we there might be the public might be a touch too optimistic optimistic about the clippers because where they are similar they are also similarly deficient even if it only in a few areas what's the perfect fit in basketball. Now you typically say guy like Magic Johnson when he came in was able to take the basketball with Los Ange Lakers they had Kareem Kareem abdul-jabbar to me. That was perfect besides that tell me a perfect fit in basketball told me because the positions are so interchangeable now to me there unless they're both shooting guards to me. There really is no perfect fit. If you look at all the players that we have look I mean we're is perfect fit now in basketball. I believe the fit that they have is just as good because of age personality in the things they're going to provide for their teammates so for me. They are a perfect fit because they do so many things that if you're there teammate best to kind of teammate that you want it goes beyond just basketball skills isn't it also the fact that they are two of the best two-way players in the League doesn't that in and of itself make them such a good fit Louis that makes the clippers a great defense and that's why both of these guys are the type of player that anyone would want to play with their. I don't think there's a player in the league that wouldn't WanNa play with quiet Leonard and there might be there's not a player in the league that wouldn't WanNa play with Paul George because they are going to more than handle the responsibilities on defense and you can rely on them for super high level scoring and I agree with you that okay so there one year apart in age they are both right in the heart of the prime of their career. The low maintenance thing matters that all of that I I totally agree with but I think because these are two guys that are so similar and because they are two guys that do something that a lot of star players is don't do anymore at a super high level which is gives such effort on defensive end. They people respect that people almost admire the okay so you're gonNA play both ends of the court while you're out there that when they came together we instantly said who instantly became the Vegas favorites they were talking N._B._A.. G._M. or coach survey sixty five percents Adam pick the clippers to win the title that might be touch strong for me but I I think they're perfect fit because these guys are individually Julie a great fit along any other great player because of the type of player they all I think those general managers also saw the fit with that roster how they have a lack of ego on that roster now they have their two best players that don't have the ego we see with other the players and also they happen to have a championship coach. Also they have an owner. That's committed to win and he said it yesterday. I'm about that Larry O._B.. Man He's a quiet first time ever heard that he said but everything from here on out is going to be about getting Hilario beat so I think there's other things that people are looking at but when you have to superstars and both of them are unselfish I don't care to some of their skills are redundant. It don't matter they're going to score at a high level the part you're worried what about the clippers but also those teammates when you show up to the gym there is no better tandem then knows too because they're not going offensively..

"Wait. I'm going to continue to Miss Games because of it. That's the first thing they afternoon. I think you said it really brilliantly before people can talk to them up and down until they realized that they've got improve people as humans as athletes. They're never going to do it. The best ideas ideas people have are the ones they come up with or at least they think so because you kids you ask them. You tell them something like no then they come up with the been like all yeah. They have the energy to build to do it so for me. If it's going to stick with you it has to be personal. It has to be internal and that's the part where I believe that Joel embiid. It's a lot easier to gain control of your fitness to get himself at the proper weight and I like the Charles Barkley what Charleston because I know Charles's career Charles got cut by the Olympic team by Bobby Knight why because he was overweight and his personality and then eventually he talked about Moses Malone but that was later in his career Charles got the fitness part. You look at Charles Barclay on the Dream Team you look at those videos and you watch. I'll look how how much can raise off the ground. Everything Man That's what Zion will look like at his best but Charles is onto the fitness is a huge component. It's a lot easier than developing a jump shot but for me Ben Simmons we talk about his shooting or inability to shoot or reluctance to shoot away from ten feet because he's getting closer your number one seventy eight percent from ten feet last year eighty nine percent ten feet or closer but to me the problem is bigger bigger and to me. It's an attitude problem because I wouldn't have a problem with Ben Simmons F- He was just a bull in China shop. I'm gonNA play bully ball. I'm just GONNA play aggressive like I did that. The Night I dropped thirty one on Brooklyn right after Jimmy. It's an attitude. He doesn't take the court and going to play like a guy. That doesn't have a jump shot where I got to get to the paint. I'M GONNA use my size force over everyone on a regular night play light draymond green. He don't play like that. He plays laid back and everything so for me. That's the bigger problem then the jump shot because he could survive without a jump shot. He's an all star but can you continue be on the court. Be One the best athletes in not know that you said during among green how about this what about play like early Derrick Rose Derrick rose foot damn near foot shorter than Ben Simmons at least eight inches shorter and explosive athlete but going a hundred miles an hour at all times. He didn't have no jump shot now it wasn't he didn't shoot zero threes but he didn't. He was not a reliable jump shooter one in the M._v._p.. Playing that way and he was more explosive than Simmons but Simmons makeup that with lengthen right now Ben Simmons when he came into the League was the consensus number-one pick and then he misses the ear with the red shirt. You're with the injury and his rookie season. He is stature as I like to say damn near one of one and N._B._A.. History four rookies and people such as myself said wow. What does this guy going to be when he learns to shoot? There's Lebron James Caan like the baby King Young Prince Listen..

"You can't even right of five to four you run. What did y'all do a man? I don't know so so much mine was all verbal. A recent report says the thunder are in no rush to trade newly acquired Chris Paul Shockingly suitors are not looking for thirty four year old point guard who still has three years one hundred twenty four million dollars left on his deal nick how much does C._p._i.. Three half left in tanks and Chris Bowl can still help a good team but a good team doesn't have thirty seven million dollars to pay him so he's GonNa betwixt in between here when you see what the thunder are able to get for Chris Paul or maybe more accurately what they have to give up to get someone to take crispell. I think you might look at the Chris. Paul Russell Westbrook trade a little bit differently but he's going to start the year on Oklahoma City. I'm pretty convinced to that. Chris got a bad contract the first year it's okay if he was in Houston but now playing with the younger team is he the guy that you want mentor and all these young players I mean he's having accomplished career but he has been tough to ooh play with no matter where he's been look for Minnesota. Maybe at some point to get in this game move it on another player on the move could be Andre Iguodala. All of the former finals M._v._p.. Could soon be traded from the grizzlies with reports that the Lakers the rockets and the clippers are leading the charge see. Where do you think agee best fits well it? It depends on who gets an injury because someone gets an injury man especially in a wing player. I mean he could play with all those teams a great locker room room guy guys around League have a lot of respect for him. He's a guy that's going to buy into whatever role that he's playing. That's what he did there. In Golden State man any of those teams would men would it would help the roster to add iggy to them nick. I would listen He. He almost signed with Houston a few years ago. Remember that if he gets bought out I think all three of those teams will immediately try to court in but as far as a trade goes the only contending team that I could see actually trading for him. Is the Denver Nuggets. They've they've contracts make work. He played in Denver played really well and Denver. They think they can win the title but I don't know if anyone's going to give up a draft pick to peggy seventeen million bucks. Do millennials know what courting is 'cause you use that word okay so the the nuggets might try to slide into his D._M.'s far note. Bring it back a little said. I need relate to the millennials and their rainbow toast and stuff according J._r.. We are moving onto chair Smith now. The cavs wave the former M._B._A.. Champ and the Lakers reportedly quote unlikely to reunite J._R. and Lebron Nikki think it's a mistake for the Lakers not to pursue J._R.. Smith I mean you would help but if they only I think it would Allah would help more. I think Korver potentially could help more. I'd rather have J._R. Than Melo. If they're saving roster spot Melo I think J._R.'s got a little bit left in the tank. I think someone will pick him up. We knew the cavs. We're going to waive him. They weren't gonNA pay him fifteen fifteen million dollars this year this allows them to duck beneath the luxury tax but only J._R.'s Don. I would like to see J._R.. Trying to make a contribution on the team but I can't forget last time I saw J._R.. On a basketball court and Cherry ours ought to type of person that with unsupervised super bowl unsupervised time alone. That's what he's been doing the last year no practice no organization no travel. That's doing whatever he wanted to do. <hes> J._R. will always have those eight points. Beginning of the second half game seven saved the season for the cavs one of the greatest championships ever key part of it by air twenty sixteen man. There's not that long ago years ago Andy With Ben Simmons who turns twenty-three three on Saturday and as an early happy birthday sixers gifted the former number one overall pick a five year one hundred seventy million dollar Max contract extension surprisingly only in Siman that surprisingly only in its Simmons remains game has been under a microscope since entering the league you'll because he can't really shoe from outside..

"Catch it all on the Fox Sports app back here. First things first we'll get to Steelers and saints in second. But I watch the tackle from falcons kicker Matt Bosscher on Kenyan Barner this. I mean, this was an energy play for Atlanta right after this. They actually started playing really well after this play go as this might be the most impressive special teams tackle by a kicker or upon. I'm willing to bring some other videos takes off the ground and slam too. To build a seed and the wrath give them a little room for taunting to stand over flexes automob-, it he couldn't believe it. Did it eagles Texans? It feels like every Monday. We're talking about a great catch by Andre Hopkins. Well, it's Monday. And there's another great catch by day on dre Hopkins. That's why he has the best hands in the business. You can throw with anywhere when they talk about catch radius man, they have is pitcher near as far as low high one hand or he's a special special I receive and he went into the locker room during pregame warmups. They weren't sure if he was going to play he played great the whole game. So this game to Shawn Watson break in about thirty separate tackles there throws a dart to keep the drive alive. If the Texans could have held on to win because this was part of a thirteen point comeback right here. This would have been one of the better plays the entire NFL season. By a quarterback DeShaun Watson was spectacular. Third and Levin men everyone depending on him to make a play. Makes three guys miss and that Philadelphia rush and delivers a strike down. Impressive. What he did late yesterday? The eagles made eagles fans very happy today. We'll talk more about that. Finally chief Seahawks Doug Baldwin with this spectacular one handed. Catch Doug ball when get into done late in the game. Don't need to get the pass in fairness. They would have gotten the ball inside the ten yard line because you want to catch here Doug, Baldwin finishes. All great game run some great routes after really struggled with injuries throughout the season. They are different offense when Doug Baldwin this healthy Pete Carroll trust. Russell Wilson so much man late in the game. They're already in field goal range. They a couple of our sounds run out the clock. Now, let him throw it deep. Doug, Baldwin made the play I fan tastic game in New Orleans yesterday is the Steelers were trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. We pick this up in the fourth quarter fourth and five Steelers up for they call a fake punt on their own forty two and they come up about a yard. Short. So the saints come in Jiu breeze methodically. Worked the ball down the field while eating up the clock. And not surprisingly capping off a drive with a great catch from Michael Thomas that put the saints up thirty one to twenty eight. Yeah. That was a touchdown. Big day for Thomas posted eleven catches one hundred nine yards. Steelers would have one last chance forty-one seconds left juju Smith Schuster makes the catch. But he is stripped and that is the game. This is the third time in December. The Steelers have lost by three points. They now need a lot of help. If they're gonna make the playoffs. Here is what juju Smith Schuster had to say about that costly fumble after the game..
