"Win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. I'm stupid joke with sports filling in for Steve Land this morning. Three numbers pop out from last night's Game seven. It's the number of Mavericks, who scored in double digits last night. Another seven The Mavericks have now made 15 3 pointers in a game in seven straight games, including last night. The team record is eight. And the number of 15. That's the number of rebounds the Mavericks outrebounded. The Timberwolves by last night was a good game for the Mass. But you would expect that against the worst team in the NBA right now. Plenty of people were excited about Evelyn Christian colleges upset of Number three seed Texas in the first round of March Madness, but nobody had more reason to celebrate. Then the people running the school. That's because beating the state's most popular team, and one of the biggest events in sports was apparently worth quite a bit of money to the school's bottom line. How much it was school president estimates about $120 Million and future student tuitions. Is kind of affect has been seen before when you have Cinderella's in March Madness, And while the school being good at basketball, you know shouldn't really affect the actual education is that their students receive. Pulling an upset like they did against U. T is a pretty good way to announce their existence to high schoolers. And since I'm in charge of sports this morning, I'll just mention very quickly.

2021 Lottery NBA Mock Draft
"Tony. And i are going to do our first lottery. Mock draft of the year today. We're going to go back and forth. Selecting picks to put a draft order together. Midseason is really difficult. Especially if you've looked at the standings anytime lately and seen how bunch together so many of these teams are so i went to espn's basketball power index That list teams projected records to the season through a number of statistical factors. I think it's it's probably a better look. At where teams are going to be at the end of the season then necessarily their records right now and then based off of that we put together a draft order that obviously is going to change and obviously will be affected by the nba draft lottery where the top top three teams each have a fourteen percent chance of getting the top pick and so on as you know how the draft lottery works and so doing a mock draft. This time of season tough until really until the draft lotteries over. We don't really know the order but but we have some guesses now based off of where teams what teams have played. And what's going on right now and we're going to do our best to give you a are mock draft For the twenty twenty one season. First one we're just gonna cover the lottery and we're going to let tony how the first pick in the draft and based off of that. Espn bpi has the minnesota timberwolves projected to have the worst record in the league. Which is actually pretty good news for minnesota timberwolves fans because the timber wolves have to trade pick to the golden state warriors if this is pick four thirty and so the only way minnesota keeps this pick is if they fall into top three right now. If the season were tomorrow they'd have about a forty point. Seven percent chance of keeping this year's draft pick a falling the top three in the draft. So this is no guarantee from minnesota that they'll have the number one pick they all said the number one pick last year. Tony you're on the board. Who do you select if you're the timber. Wolves with the number one. Pick in the twenty twenty one nba draft. I select the I will not need three minutes to make the selection I'm selecting k. Cunningham six hundred seventy one hundred twenty point guard out of oklahoma state and so when you When you make your draft selections you do to you draft for two things you draft For value and you draft for need and this is both in pick antibi- you pick for for for the minnesota timberwolves number one. K cunningham is the best player draft You know. I think the gap is actually close Because you know. I think jonathan coachman gain in jalen green. You know both of those guys you look at them and they have some real special tools But that being said you know k. Cunningham is is still am. I is the most shore Most short superstar player in his draft. In and i think that's a compliment to how good distract is going to be especially in the top five But you know cunningham can score at all three levels. No he's sick. He's all seven all twenty. He's he's a natural point guard You know if you're minnesota you're trying to trace the ngelo russell Like as soon as possible In you know you put k. cunningham in the backcourt with anthony edwards who i think both of us can safely say it's better than we thought he would And i think that. That's obviously a backward for the future for the minnesota timberwolves in a really nice triumvirate with karl anthony towns so Definitely you know we all rights won't always talk about. We need some some of these number. One picks the go out east but you get the number one pick in another kind of generational prospect that comes to the western conference. I'm totaling till the agreement with you. Tony i think look. I don't think. I think there's five guys that can make a claim to the number one pick in this draft and so it's not like cunningham is a lock here but because of that i would put all of these players in the same tier and then when you look at what minnesota actually needs on their basketball team. Right now i think cunningham is just the right fit for this team as well and i i see him as a really nice compliment to karl anthony towns and to ant man right now and i think that this is this will be a huge boon for minnesota. If they get this pick and you know look everybody in minnesota has got gotta be crossing their fingers at this point Like you said if they fall out of the top three golden state gets this pick. And i think golden state already one that andrew wiggins dangelo russell trade as it is but if they end up getting you know the fourth or fifth pick in the draft does as as well. It's going to be an absolute massacre on that trade.
Wolves fire Saunders, hire Finch as new coach
"We've got a head coaching change in the nba. The timber wolves have fired head coach. Saunders but i. I had a game to play brian. Sanders was coaching against the guy. He replaced tom sibito of the new york knicks. Having a great season there is game. Went down to the wire. Karl anthony towns had shot in the post to try and take the lead with thirty seconds left over his former teammate. Taj gibson but it rimmed out on a rim in madison square garden. Where the ball. Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade. And he's an offensive specialist who worked with james harden in zion. Now he'll have the chance to work with karl. Anthony towns anthony edwards.
Are Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz True Contenders?
"So tony. Let's start this story during last year's playoffs done mitchell and jamal murray have this epic battle in the nba. Bubble shot clock down to four. Mitchell has millsaps. Automobile three took three and returns the staredown ton of matchel clutch. Three pointer for the jazz. Eventually mitchell jazz fall in dramatic fashion a game. Seven two seconds ago for the winter. Tell us about donovan. Mitchell after that loss of known donovan. Pretty well in the four years. He's been with the johnson. I don't think i've seen him data emotional in the post game. There's so many things. I just feel like we could did and we didn't and i think that's just where the hurt really comes because quite frankly i don't i give them credit but i feel like we kind of eased off the gas. You have to remember the jazz at a be in the second half of game five which was supposed to be oppose out game for them to do more and this won't happen again is extremely down and he just basically said. We're not losing in the first round of the playoffs anymore. This ain't the end. This ain't this is just the beginning man. This is just the just the beginning. And i'm ready to go. Who begin right now and so once. The cameras were gone and donovan. Mitchell was back home in utah. How how did he spend. This off. season is funny. Because i talked to somebody close to donovan mitchell about this a couple of weeks ago and one thing he said was donovan was on the phone with people like literally. You know two or three days after the season Sam less workout. You know the thing about donovan. He's a guy that goes out and he works on his craft resolutely. And you know. I think that not only. Did he work on his craft during the offseason but after that the rest of the jazz from person one person fifteen worked on their craft under all season as well. Well let's bring it forward to this year. How did mitchell in the jazz start off. The current season they started off on four and with two really bad losses unforced turnover passing out an equal. Don't runaway league beasley. They lost the minnesota timberwolves at home. In the second game of the season they will blown out and outclassed in brooklyn nets team did james harden because they hadn't traded for them and they didn't have durant is everywhere. Count it at one but rudy rudy. Did show back up on the screen and brooklyn's play it with alan at the energy so basically re irving at a bunch of role players that blasted the jazz in new york. You know jazz nation on the fan base was kind of going crazy. The jazz a couple of games where they look like world-beater. They had a couple of games where they look really back. And tony. I wanted to ask you about this moment. That happened on live television a few weeks ago. That was really widely discussed. It started at halftime of jazz. Pelicans game when the tnt broadcast crew was discussing the game. My question to the panel. Donovan mitchell is that the point of superstardom where he can take you there. Or he's still all star status. He needs to be so go. Third option really. Yes yeah i feel like it. No talent to do it. He's a great score. Grew there but if he's not score. What else can you do. And when the game ended shack starts interviewing donovan mitchell. Who's still on the court right after the jazz victory. Yeah and he says. I said tonight. That you are one of my favorite players. But you don't have what it takes to get to the next level as central purpose on wednesday to hear what you have to say about that. I that's it i mean. What were your thoughts when you first saw that exchange so the irony of the whole thing is that the actual conversation was fair. That part of the conversation that happened at halftime that part was fair. We know the donovan. Vigil is a dynamic offensive player. We know that he is a star. We know that he is an all star. Caliber guy for him to be a superstar. He has to round out his game and do everything he's got to defend. He's got a rebound. These got make plays for others. What wasn't fair is shaquille. O'neal saying hey. I don't think that you have what it takes to get to the next level as a player. And i just wanted you to hear that. What's your reaction. And i felt bad for about donovan. Because he was really dominant in that went over to pelicans he didn't deserve to be blindsided like up on live television and frankly he handled it as about as well as you handle something like that. My rookie year norms gonna get better mood. I do wonder cuba. The look on his face. Kind of indicated that he wasn't happy you know about the question but at the same time he's always been a person that knows how to express himself. I think he's a guy that's kinda. Learn how to lockout the proverbial outside noise and kind of focus on what he has to do and i think a desk one of the reasons why he's improved so much as a player.

NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road
Breaking Down Tonights NBA Draft: The Players, The Picks, and Virtual Fashion
"Mike schmidts. Thank you for joining me mandy day that you work towards every single year has finally arrived. Yeah i feel like this is our our super bowl and we've been waiting for this forever. I we thought it was going to be in june. And then maybe october and now here in november so you know i think teams and myself are very excited to get this one of the books. Mike schmidts is an nba draft analyst for espn. And he's been traveling the world scouting nba prospects for nearly a decade. I love the nba. draft personally. I went to the draft at the garden. Growing up in new york as a sad knicks fan and i still love the draft. Which tells you something about my own personal pathologies. The weirdness of this draft mike. You said it. This is going to be held in a way that has never been seen before. It's going to be entirely remote adam. Silver the commissioner. Mark tatum the deputy commissioner. They're going to be reading out. Picks live from espn studios in bristol. Where you are right now. So tell me what it's been like for teams and for players to go through this whole draft process in the midst of a global pandemic. It's been very very challenging for teams and players alike from the team side. They're used to having march madness the nba draft. Combine tournaments like portsmouth invitational. Which is where you see. You know a jimmy butler and some of these seniors pop up. They're able to have their individual workouts one on one workouts team workouts. I really have these guys in their building and this pre-draft process that just simply hasn't been the case so think you have teams kind of relying on a lot of these zoom calls right. We've all been kind of zoom jail more or less for the last few months You know they're relying on film. They're relying on intel and then from the players perspective. I think they just want to finally hear their name called. I mean this is the moment that they've been waiting for their entire lives. And so i feel a lot of these kids just having to have this. Push back and push back in push-back. They've each had very different circumstances. I mean some guys are like in the gym working out with nba players. Every day. some are with you know their brother and their cousin and some empty. Jim just one on getting workout. Since so it's been very strange. I guess the thing. I think of when i think about what might be lost in this iteration of the draft like are they going to be suits mike. Are we gonna get like nba draft fashion. That we've been blessed by in the past. Oh we're getting it it's coming it's coming virtually you're not gonna see that same strut the same level of excitement that we generally get in barklays within walking up on the stage but from everything i've seen out on social media everything i've heard. I think the suit game is still going to be strong. Yeah i just want if one of those guys wanna go retro and bring back like the seventeen but in suit. I just wanna make sure. The camera frame contains all seventeen of those budgets. We're gonna do everything we can to get that done. I hope we really really highlight the fashion. Because that that might steal the night to be honest i want to take a deep dive into the top three players in the draft to start here because the three of them. You've been talking about relentlessly for months. Now lamelo ball. James wiseman anthony edwards. They're all still in play for the number one overall pick which belongs of course to the minnesota timberwolves and i want to start with lamelo because we know as the brother lonzo the son of lavar and he chose to play overseas australia instead of going to the college game but for the uninitiated ear. What is lamelo offered to whichever team does end up selecting him tonight. I think he's the best prospect in the draft. Honestly i think if he played at duke kentucky enter any big name college program and he didn't have some of the questions about kind of the circus that has surrounded him at times in his life. I think he would be the runaway number. One pick in terms of his game. I mean he's a big point guard. Six seven close to six foot. Eight is one of the youngest players in the draft. Who was a late bloomer. So i think people remember him as the young you know twelve year old looking kid bomb and half court shots but he's really grown into his frame as great size has the ball on a string as a ball handler. He's incredibly shifty and smooth and his playmaking is ridiculous. The way he sees the game is really really special.

"And that's just talk about a drop off. He rookie year to bench player on the Pacers. Anyways, not pay in general. But then the final game of the night. We have the seventy Sixers birches the Minnesota Timberwolves Jimmy Butler against his former team and seventy Sixers show why they are one of the best teams in the east as they handled. They destroyed they thinking of other answered other adjective here to the Minnesota Timberwolves one forty nine one. Oh, seven and m bead kind of and bead. We'll see Lou NBA stats. I where we talk about what he did after there's maybe thirty one points and thirteen rebounds, absolute great performance. Ben Simmons another good for. I am twenty points eleven rebounds Jimmy Butler against his former team nineteen point three rounds. Forces pretty decent night for him Benson's almost had trouble dealt with nine assists. So close from that triple-double himself, but Embiid after the game kind of tweeted something that was what we kids. Call a troll to the Minnesota Timberwolves as he was saying that he was honored to be part of a third string parts part of the third stringers and get a win against real MBA starters. Hashtag the process. Embiid is like people, call them the troll king really hard tonight that. Because he's really good at trolling. You should be on. Our Brady's troll. And so hard get it for the laughter. Okay. We're good anyways. Probably the laughter. But anyways. Looking into the seventy Sixers season really looking great overall, just either. Therefore, they're only fourth in the east between nine sixteen really speaks for itself. Pacers. Or twenty nine wins won't walkie with thirty one in Toronto with thirty three and the to the best records in the NBA are Eastern Conference teams with the bucks in Rogers both over thirty and golden stay in the first place is thirty wins in the west people say the west is better than these. I agree. This is just a tough conference. And that's why they have a little more wins than the others do in the west. Because of the fact they kind of play more Eastern Conference teams. I mean, you look right underneath the the team the team with the above fight last team above five hundred in the east is the Boston Celtics in the fifth seed with twenty five eighteen and they've lost three straight. The other seeded team six team after the Celtics are the heat at five hundred than the nets game under five hundred and the Hornets three games under five hundred so really shows the differences in strength of schedule when you look at the Eastern Conference versus the Western Conference. But again, not saying anything from this. Any Sixers still a great team MP's on rampage Jimmy boys playing pretty well. Ben Simmons turn a light it up teams looking good. And honestly, it's ion see there's a lot of opportunities to these teams to make it to the commerce trials. I know I said the bucks, I've the bucks going to the conference finals, and I still Sam by that. But it would not surprise me the Pacers in the finals the Sixers in the finals of obviously, not the raptors. But the top four teams in the NBA each one of them geared the finals. Sixers Pacers bucks. Raptors I totally see it happening. And we're gonna take a break down. I think that's all about having about yesterday when we get back.

"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on The HoopsHype Podcast With Alex Kennedy
"Welcome to the hoop site podcast. My name is Alex Kennedy. And joining me today. Good friend of mine. He's been on the podcast before mock Hamilton do a man I'm doing all right? Allie. Alex, it's been a while. And a man just make sure you let everybody know that when you say good friend, like, we're we're we're like real friends. This guy. You just have your go. You my good friend. Join me like we actually room together during the NBA finals. That's how close we are. We go way back. So we worked together at basketball insiders people who don't know. And then you know, he actually joined me. So we started the NBA wire over here under USA today sports media group, and was one of the first people, I hire he's been crushing it over. There were the with the different NBA wire sites. Now, he writes at the athletic as well. But yeah, we work together. We said we ruined together during the finals, we covered a black events. Together. We go way back, and I knew you Alex since dude start you're like a fourteen year old kid like right again your mom's basement. You know what I'm saying? So we realize. For real real. And yeah, I appreciate you doing this to. So this kind of came together last minute and Moke is a great friend. I call him he'd econ I was trying to schedule a podcast tomorrow on Monday where record this on Sunday night. And I told him away I'm in today. And then within one hour the guy gets on hit grabs his microphone gets ready to go. So that's a real friend. Do you not? We don't just go way. Back your real friends. I appreciate that. I appreciate that too, bro. We have some breaking news, right? As you were getting ready to record this as I said Sunday night Tomko was fired by the Minnesota Timberwolves Adri will announce the and you know, a bunch of other reporters put it out there. So we wanted to kind of break that down, and we're also going to get into some other stuff. We're gonna talk about the first all-star returns. And then Moke is based out of New York. So we're gonna talk about the nets recent strong play and some other stuff there the Knicks, and you know, there rebuild so we'll get into that too. But we want to start with this tip story. Just so you guys know Scott late in will remain the GM and Ryan. Saunders. The flip Saunders. Son is the interim head coach some names have been mentioned already Monty Williams who's currently at assistant in Philadelphia. He had actually been linked to the job previously. Fred Hoiberg who played Minnesota and worked in their front office as vice president of basketball operations. Those are two of the names that have been mentioned in the coaching search so far, but I think the situation, and we want to kind of get into what happened in Minnesota with Tibbs in kind of what went wrong Minnesota is currently nineteen twenty one which puts them a eleven in the Western Conference. They've lost nine of their last fifteen games. They have been struggling recently. There was some talk locally about him being on the hot seat in actually in recent weeks, you know, Mark Stein. And some others had mentioned that he was on the hot seat net. Fred Hoiberg could be an option. So this isn't really new. But today, we actually have the news that he's fired. And I think with Jimmy Butler stuff started going down. You know, there was a lot of talk about their reading is of in the locker room between Tibbs guys, and those were mainly, you know, the veteran. Wins the guys that he had previously co Chicago. And then the young guys now with you know, the team struggling Butler gone. It's pretty clear the wolves aren't going to win a championship with this group. So I think they're prioritizing their young guys want to kind of pump the brakes a little bit and not necessarily focused on win now stuff. And that's not tips as style Tibbs wants to play these guys thirty six minutes at night, and you know, not developed guys and east Boca's on winning right away. So I think it's just a a style difference. And I think that's why we're seeing this move. Now, yet, I think the main thing about it to Alex was, you know, it's like at the end of the day as as an owner, you know, and as a front office executive in the NBA, you know, stability, and what things look like from the outside is so so important, and I think.

"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on The Hoop Collective
"But you know, I plugged the new lineups in to the original preseason projection in Philly. Actually, I think dropped a little bit rather than improving despite getting, you know, the best player in the trade Jimmy Butler, just because of the fact you've got so many minutes that we're going to quality starters that now are either going to Chandler of whom I'm skeptic or a skeptic or blue. Or even on the rotation. Then that because this is a team with a lot of injury question, Mark. And at this point, you know, ten guys you can really count on to play rotation rotation caliber minutes. So I think you have to go out as you said, I think this has to be the precursor to something else. And one of the things that I think is going to be really fascinated. The next couple of months, I feel like we're Kyle Korver goes could end up like having in massive impact on the Eastern Conference assuming it's if it's one of those contenders, Phillies, Phillies, still has some expiring contracts. They can do business with they have Chandler. They have Mike masala have Rettig, although read it can block a trade. But we talked about this on the pot over the weekend. Yes. Mr arnovitz. What will you say? Felton for that matter. You is a team you follow. So if you look at the Minnesota Timberwolves, and obviously they lost. It impact layer their best player in terms of production. If not potential. You look at starting five, and you know, what it's kind of interesting in Covington. They get the kind of player they've been missing for a very long time. A starting three four who can shoot a little bit. And might be one of the most versatile defenders in the lead at his physician. Would if they get good Dario. Okay. To put next to towns. Wiggins is obviously always going to be this. This issue. We have to deal with potential versus production Jeff t been hurt now. But they're getting good rushing from rose. Like is it crazy to say that they're still very much off contention? When you add up all the pieces, and and look at the talent of towns and just what they get now defensively with Covington stars five as not a terrible defender, all well, I think I gotta play Derrick rose less. Derek is playing too much. Coming back. Let's say Teague is getting close coming back. One of the things I think benefits them is. Yes, therefore nine, but they west isn't there's a lot of teams sort of puttering in the west. You know? There. They've dropped the standings. But it's not like they're seven teams in the west that are already six games over five hundred. So they're there they have some they have some window where they start to play better. They can because this is one of the things I thought the started the season was if you had a bad two weeks in the west it would take two months to overcome it. But you have New Orleans sputtering. You have Houston sputtering. The Lakers are five hundred. A few teams have impressed us. But the jazz sputtering the the the the thunder came out of the boxers sputtering a little bit this Spurs are okay. But on the little bit above five hundred. So I think they've got a fighting shot on that. But pelton unless you have a real something really to say here. I just wanna squeeze in. Before we go. So the raptors twelve and one. They've done it. Despite collide missing some games. Are they number one in point differential? No actually there behind Milwaukee, Houston and also behind Golden State, and I think they might be buying someone else too. What do we think about the raptors? I mean, are they going to be a sixty five one team when we what do we think about their tied with third? Yeah. Okay. I think so I mean, my take away from watching them the other quick. When this had preposterous home road imbalance. I mean, they're doing great. They played nine home games and forward game so far so just up their spouse..
"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Whatever man, I actually am cool with the referees. Allowing these guys in the last couple of minutes to play I know some of you out there sticklers to the rules of defendants. Dan, the first good vantage. We'd good. No. I want the games to be a little more physical. And I'm okay with that. Now, if it's completely agree Disley, hacks them on the arm. That's different. But did he not let their grows follow-through? Okay. Fine, whatever. But the shot still got their, you know, give me a little step back action Derrick rose right that we can't block your shot. You know, he stepped right into it. And of course, Tyson Chandler with his length was able to kind of get out. They're smart enough to get out the way, though, just to make you know out there because he could have jumped into Derrick rose that would have been three shot. It was not body at all. It was all hand. But look that's the veteran savvy that a guy like that brings to the table. And he was the hero at the end. Is LeBron talked about At a veterans. veteran who the spirits allot able to pick up things very fast. You know to be able to get Tyson and to have that one two punch Valentine's those guys create extra opportunities for. Way d- rose shoot Navolato as we needed. Every last one off the reviles allowed us to to win a game in a season where we've sat there and have dissect it every play and look that's not to say we won't dissect every play here moving forward because we will. And they were things last night. I didn't necessarily love from Luke particularly down the stretch. The the lineups to me are still something that are bit mind boggling, but again, we're gonna stay on the positive tip for a second. Okay. The thing I took away from that game. And I'm curious to see what you guys thought about this. I wanna I wanna see if you're on the same page with me, the two numbers that stood out. The most to me forty three points in the second half for the Minnesota Timberwolves twenty two points in the fourth quarter for the Minnesota Timberwolves that to me. Those are numbers that are music to my ears because what have we been harping about? When it comes as Lakers team that their defense is absolutely atrocious. And for the first time. The entire season. I know it's only eleven games in. But for the first time I finally came away from game saying, all right? They they look competent on defence for change. So I know I've been harping on some stuff. But again, there's two conversations we've been trying to have here with you. There's a micro discussion which is the day to day. Whether it's a game reacting to the game reacting to the news of the day. Magic Johnson, you know, getting on Luke or whatever. And look that stuff not gonna go away. Okay. But the macro discussion was always just take a breath is gonna take a minute. Not. Everybody's Michael Thomson with this was going to be fifteen and five to start the season Ireland, and I particularly were very much on the ten and ten through twenty games, and you're good. And and they're going to probably be ten in ten look at the schedule moving forward here. They're gonna play Orlando twice. Orlando might be I know the wizard stink right now. But Orlando might be the. The worst team I've seen play NBA basketball this year. I honestly think that if you gave I don't actually honestly believe this. I'm lying to you. But if if they played Duke, they probably lose at least one out of ten, and that's generally, not the case NBA teams versus college, nor should it be. But the Orlando Magic are so trashy as a squad that I actually think that Duke might get one out of ten games against the Orlando Magic and the Lakers play them twice over the next couple of nights..
"minnesota timberwolves" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"But as at least flirted with an offer to the Minnesota Timberwolves that includes four first round picks, which basically is they feel as though they are Jimmy Butler away from contending there. One in. Five Mike dantonio says they've lost their swagger the season is not over. They are not left for dead right now. But if you look at the Western Conference in the NBA it gets late early in the NBA season because it's one thing if you're the one or two seed where you might not have these stiffest challenge in the conference in the playoffs. But the NBA playoffs are the antithesis of the MLB playoffs baseball. It comes and goes before you know, what the Red Sox go from playing the Yankees around one two World Series World Series champions in what feels like a blink of an eye. The NBA playoffs are two months. It's a grueling stretch for anybody that makes it far you got to be have to position yourself appropriately during the NBA regular season to make a deep run and they're one in five and they're looking up at not just the warriors. But you know, the always competitive Spurs, the nuggets the trailblazers teams that have been good the jazz who we think could be a legit factor in this conference. Not even dimension teams like the thunder in the Lakers who have also struggled out of the gates, but figure to be in the mix come April. Yeah. You know, you mentioned defense, and it's obvious side of it. And everybody says, well, they just need to get everybody together and find their rhythm. Because Carmelo Anthony is new Chris Paul had a suspension James Harden's injured, but Cornell, Anthony two of twelve from the floor in last night's loss one oh, four eighty five to the trailblazers James harden when he's out they've lost by a combined thirty nine points in their last two games. And then Chris Paul even though he did have those games that he lost his suspension. He's nine of thirty two in the games. He is playing in. So you know, to me it feels like maybe if you put all those piles of poop together, they all fixed each other. But that's a lot to ask for like. It's a lot to say it's just about get them all together and get a rhythm because defensively those problems are not being fixed by getting everyone on the court together. And then offensively they shot thirty two percent from the floor last night. Yeah. So here's what I would say is that. I don't have concerns that the rockets can't find a rhythm. They're going to be very very good. And they're going to find the rhythm. We're gonna find their swagger back. My point about the standings is notable because like last year at the end of the NBA season. There was this teeny tiny sliver of a margin between the third seed and the eight see there was legitimately competition for six spots in the playoff up until the final three days of the conference so at but like the in relative terms, you know, the rockets and the warriors had it easier than other teams where like the trailblazers with a thirty two got swept in the first rattling the depth of the west makes it such that you really don't have the opportunity to falter in the way that the rockets have faltered right now unless you're going to have a blitz of the rest of the regular season, which they showed us last year. They can have a lot of this is small sample size confusion for us right now. I'm not saying the rockets aren't going to be competitive in very good. When push comes to shove. But it's a bit disconcerting when you look at the bigger. Picture because we know that the west is going to be really good top to bottom in the difference. Be in the third and the second or the second in the fifth seed community world of difference. Yeah. Absolutely, right, sir. Spain and field Yates, it's ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz on the ESPN app and siriusxm channel eighty as. Well, you know, part of that to me is trying to figure out is this intangibles..

"Many kids sixty. One kidding. I'm kidding. I'm kidding kidding. How about the Cleveland cab? We'd have twenty one loss wins. Then the Cleveland Cavaliers only like thirty. Isn't it? Thirty one and a half how much of a drop without LeBron James my Lord. I think they were fifty-five. I'll I'll say. Over under over badly were when they lost. They went twenty seven straight losses at one point. So, yeah, I'm just going to say that because of the conference I give him the benefit of say, they they get thirty two wins. They get thirty to the win by half. I go under still. So how about an interesting team for me, the Minnesota Timberwolves at forty two that's low. Now they got that whole Jimmy Butler saga drama, whatever you wanna call it going on over, you're going ODI. Five is my guest. So Jimmy Butler gets traded and they don't get a player or players as quality back a return to that. Would you say under, I'll say, even that one's hard to bed on because of that, you don't know what's going to happen there. And he started. He's gonna please plane in the opener. So who knows? I'll take the under on that because I don't know, man, I feel like a without Jimmy Bower. If you got cat in Wiggins, I'm not really high on them in the west. If that's your team, you know what I mean? It's hard to see them being five hundred or better than five hundred with no Jimmy. I'm not sure how many games you'll play in in the Minnesota Timberwolves colors that will. We'll see yet to be determined. So. You know what I found interesting. The clippers thirty seven and a half. Under under under? Yeah. What about the Mavericks at thirty six. They're only one and a half behind the clippers, and they're a really bad team under. You're seeing bad. Yeah. Okay. Take. Did you pull up the MVP? I had you want to hear some shockers. Yeah. I mean, we talked about a little bit, but. I think there is a name you a player and you tell me what they're over under his you mean they're like they're no, like to one odds. Okay. Russell Westbrook. Isn't he twenty two one. He's now fourteen to one. Yeah, that's interesting. This is shocker to me. Seven curry, twenty five to one the teen one. In this one can also shot and Kevin Durant. Eleven one nine to one. So he's in the single digits again, what Brown's? Probably this. This one's kind of a long shot, but Ben Simmons forty five to one twenty eight to one pretty. That's pretty high for them. It's pretty good this quite Leonard. Thirty five to one eleven to one. That's that's pretty high. This one is kind of absurd still to me, but entity Davis high for sure. Eight to one four to one. Yeah. Yeah. He's the. Might not be LeBron James, he's odds on favourite three to one. Yeah, ten to three actually. Yeah, let's face it thirty one. Yeah. Interesting.

Thanks again, STAN Van Gundy popping off from LA just a few minutes earlier, but let's get back to the phones that it eight say ESPN JP if you're out there, feel free to call back so I can get you back on buddy. Sorry. I had to cut short because of STAN Van Gundy. Let's go to j. You'll live Stephen. They talk to me. I was going on even going right. Talk to me. How's everything. So I wanted to ask you a couple of questions skeeving and I don't mean to be funny anything like that, but it's Derrick rose on the Minnesota Timberwolves. I don't think so. Not anymore. I haven't. I haven't looked though who the hell knows where Derrick rose is these days. But as of right now, I know he was on on the team at the end of the season fall. I know he might still be on there. I haven't even checked because one of my games may be is what Butler went through and Chicago with having to play. You know, a second fiddle to a star and for that star to say, teams like I'm not going to injure myself. I have my kids to take care of things like that for forget for Butler to put the team on his back the way he did when world was injured yet. And I don't I know know. if I remember correctly. I do believe rose is still there. I do believe that rose is still there in Minnesota plan under typical. So it's Taj Gibson, obviously, the all all those two amd Butler all played on the typical inch icago so it's it's, it's kind of it's kind of weird. What's going on right now?
