Fresh update on "raptors" discussed on Sports Talk Saturday with Sal Capaccio

"We've got Keith Smith coming appear in just one moment. Keith is a writer for Yahoo Sports in the embassy, So we'll talk to him a little bit about the MBA restart, which Happened in single digit days. We are just nine days away from the official MBA restart of July 20th and then at 1 30 following Keith will have just Vatana Jessica is a producer and writer over at Sports Illustrated. Inform Notre Dame Great. We're going to talk about the effects of Cove it in college football lot of breaking news this week on some of the accommodations college football is making or attempting to make. In order to Ah, Get this 2020 season at some point underway. But let's talk MBA now and go to the Western Hotline where Ah keep Smith of of Yahoo Sports and several other platforms as well. Joins me on the western hotline. First foremost, Keith, Thank you so much for making time for us here in Buffalo to talk Colombia. We do really appreciate it. I absolutely think you grab it. No, my pleasure. First and foremost. What a whirlwind. It's been, and, you know, I mean, obviously, Buffalo isn't the largest MBA market. But you know, I do find it fitting a lot of us watch. You know, Toronto Raptors basketball being here I do find it fitting that we're on the precipice of what could be. I mean, obviously this season, they're going to try to have it. But I'm not going to rule out that, you know, games end up Don't this thing doesn't get any getting canceled and punted until the 2021 season And I'm not going to say that's totally out of the picture at this moment, But I do find it fitting that the last time The Toronto Raptors one, an MBA championship, the very next season was canceled due to the Spanish flu. I don't want to say there might be a curse surrounding the Toronto Raptors, but that is a heavy coincidence, wouldn't you say? I I it is that something I was even aware of that interesting, you know? Yeah, Then was. It was shortly thereafter when the blue days That's right. They wipe out a major league baseball. So I guess he keeping sports alive for one. Yes, that's got to be the case that I didn't. I didn't know that's we just We just taught each other's about some Canadian professional sports. You know some some folklore there, so that's very interesting. Keith, obviously, with the season getting ready to go underway at the story, Lines have really been surrounding by are surrounded by okay, well, who is playing and who isn't Andi think. Most importantly, here the most of the league's largest stars are planning on playing. Is there an expectation, though, that things could change and potentially change quickly. We know that a lot of what they're trying to do with creating these bubbles for the MBA is quarantine everything in one area so that you know no outsiders can come in there. They're they're quarantining for 14 days before games start having said all that. I think you know, you know this as much as I do. Watching this thing play out from afar is things can change quickly. Do you believe the embassies in a position to change on the fly? If you know dramatic things change for the worse over the next two weeks. Yeah, they have, said Adam. So we're without putting a number against it. He has said there's an outbreak that they'll shut down and that that this is this is it is they're going to make this work. It's not gonna happen and I think he's been very clear about that is, you know they understand that something could get anything cause them to shut it down. Now they have also said one or two cases. Like you did previous, There's not going to shut them down. They now know kind of what they're dealing with it, and they're not gonna call the whole season off because they have one or two cases. But if there's a big outbreak, or if it's significant enough that I think some of the players really start to feel uneasy about moving forward. I think the N B A at that point will say, You know what? This isn't the right thing. Shut the whole thing. Were you surprised, though, with how smooth negotiations went in the MBA, considering we saw what happened in Major league baseball, where it just seemed like for a while it it seemed like it was inevitable in Major league Baseball is going to get canceled, and it just seems like they rob Manford just can't seem to really rally the troops saying with the NHL, But the NHL always can't seem to, you know, figure out a way to get out of their own way. I guess. You know, a lot of this kind of goes back to Adam Silver, and he is kind of viewed as this. You know, a league of his own, essentially in terms of Big four commissioners, you know what's your sense on how Adam Silver's handling of this is viewed not only by the players but front office officials across the league and maybe even you know, dipping into what fans are saying about Adam Silver in his handling of what is obviously just an imperfect situation that nobody could probably get right 100% regardless of what you do. Yeah, I am not surprised that the fact that they were able to come together and it didn't agreement because off the major four sport, they have easily the best working relationship with their players Union. Any one of those sports and there they are very often aligned in the same way they understand. Hey, there's a lot of money at stake here. Let's make sure all you're going after this thing is, you know it was put to me a long time ago that they understand Half a watermelon is better than a whole great. So let's make sure we're while going after, you know kind of mind that here and then it's one of the players with Adam Silver's a love and respect, and they see him as really ally because Adam Silver since Day, one has said Yes, I work for the owner. That is the job of a sports commissioner. But you've no league if we don't have a place and it's important that you were taken out what they need what they want or what's happening with You and very much. So he has been a player's commissioner since he came in and that you'll move things along quite a bit in this situations, particularly so Keith for for those folks here in Buffalo, who may have been in just following along with the reopening procedures of the MBA..

"You. That you go back to that Toronto series last year they made that court looks so small against the raptors. It was I mean there's they're so big and they cover so much ground. Fred Van Bleed, the first game series looked like three feet tall, and that he would never ever score a basket, and like you finally figured it out towards the end, but. I just defensive. This team's peak defensively is still scary, and so I still have some respect for that of what they can be. They just have shown it at any time during the year. Yeah, and to me you know while I. Expect the defense to at least be there on some level. Right like this was a top sixty fence in the NBA this year. They'll be there at some point. There's weren't like I would have. If there was one bet I could have made in terms of advance stats coming into the air, it would have been Philadelphia will finish in the top three of defensive rating right? Yeah, totally! Yeah. I didn't see a world where that would have happened or wouldn't have happened in it happened. I still am worried about the fourth quarter offense now with they're going to have to do is because they decided to not go out and. Trade for. Real, point guard. During the trade deadline which I think would have been the most interesting trade, possible or plausible during that deadline period. They're gonNA. have to play like shake Milton and Josh Richardson on the ball and use Ben. Simmons screener while like essentially benching Horford I. think that's to me the only way this really totally works yeah terms of. Offense Yeah Yeah I. I agree with you. Yeah, it's GonNa be Horford Kurd on bench. And then the fifth guy out there will be either Milton or or somebody who can travel yeah? Yeah and I mean why. Why didn't they cut trey burke again? I don't know why why. They need more point. They just need point guards like period. They need I get the Ben Simmons. Himself as point guard, and the organization has allowed that to happen and Ben Simmons should still be allowed to grab and go on the break and lead out in transition, and he can even bring the ball up the court if he wants like that's great I think, but they need a guy who can actually initiate a set and a half court setting. Not even all the time, just on like a certain number of possessions, and while I love Josh Richardson in Think Josh is about to make a ton of money. When he hits free agency like he's not it either in like shake..

What does the future of sports look like?

The Big Story

What does the future of sports look like?

"Do you remember the night that coveted nineteen got serious and North America? It was early March. Donald Trump gave an oval office address to America about the new corona virus. At the same time Tom Hanks announced he'd tested positive. And meanwhile a basketball team was being pulled off the four. Utah's no longer on the floor. The thunder no longer on its bench. The officials have gone back to walk through fans here in the arena. I don't know what's going on. We don't know what's going on has been postponed also this astounding and unprecedented story continues to evolve the NBA is suspending the season. I say that understand. Now this is gonNA sound stupid. But we'll all that was going on. I was watching it happen. I was drafting a fantasy baseball team for the upcoming season. And now because I can't bear to turn them off I get notifications every week. Reminding me to set that fantasy teams lineups. There are no lineups. Baseball is a fantasy right now. There are no sports and beyond my stupid fake team even beyond all our collective excitement about things like watching the Toronto Raptors. Try to repeat. The absence of sports has an impact. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make a living directly or indirectly from those games all work but also on a more psychological level and this age of streaming and on demand and specialized curated playlists live. Sports are one of the very few things left that millions of people experienced together at the same time and the absence of that has an impact to a sports. World hasn't stopped. It's actually oddly busier than ever. Just in very different ways. They're huge changes coming to these games. Some of them will be temporary but some of them will be permanent. And someday when you watch a game on TV or go to a game in person or even if you don't give a crap about sports if you find downtown in a big city on a game notice those changes. When will that actually happen? And what do they look like? Nobody knows at least not yet. But we will talk to someone who has been working on finding out as soon as claire catches us up on what you need to know right now. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Says the government will have more funding and an expanded job placement program for? Post secondary students who are struggling to find work. He says all the programs introduced for students will add up to about nine billion dollars. Antero has now become the second province after Quebec to call in military helped to fight the corona virus in long term care homes premier. Doug Ford says this is meant to provide operational and logistical assistance. So that workers can focus on caring for residents Ontario's also expanding cove nineteen testing to every resident and worker in long term care homes on Prince Edward Island the premier and top health officials say. They're hoping to lift some of the restrictions around Kovic nineteen in early. May they say this'll be done slowly and with consultation it's still not known when school's in. Pe. I will reopen. And the one thing the premier says will not change anytime soon is the restriction on mass gatherings. Pi has had twenty six cases of the virus. As of Wednesday evening. Canada has now topped forty thousand cases of covert nineteen with two thousand and seventy four deaths. Jordan he'd Rawlings and this is the big story Richard A writer for the athletic. He is also the CO host of writer's Block on Sports Net five ninety fan in in Toronto and he is also the CO host of a new podcast called sports on Fos sports podcast much and a pandemic with no sports. Hello Richard why? Don't you start as somebody who's just completely immersed in the world of Sports By telling me what you've learned about sports since they've vanished. Well that's a good question. I think first and foremost it just re emphasizes the importance of the escapism in our lives. It's not to say that prior to covert nineteen. We didn't recognize and understand how important sports is. But I think it's sort of human nature that when you lose something that you love when you lose something that is very close to you it really reinforces in reminds you just how much you've missed it. The interesting thing about this so far is that the literal time it's been gone isn't long. I mean we haven't been a year away from sports. We haven't been five years away from sports. You know depending on sort of your locale or what your sport is. We're looking under two months still but it feels longer. That's kind of the interesting thing with this. That it feels like we've been missing all the stuff for such a long time and it reinforces just how important and you know how how impactful it is all our lives and no matter what your sport is. The likelihood is it impacts you in some form or matter on a daily basis whether you're watching the live event where you're reading about the Levin Bet. Whether your you know on facebook or twitter instagram talking tweeting or posting about the lot. Then so I think that's for me. What the absence of sports is Is reinforced is just how central a figure. It is in in so many lives were. Yeah they were Sports are so integrated into kind of the rhythm of our daily life. And I'm not just talking about you know you. As a as a sports journalist myself as a sports fan but Just the way kind of life ebbs and flows are a constant and. I guess what I want to know is what happens in that billion billion dollar industry when all of a sudden there's a huge vacuum and there's just nothing well a lot happens And it really depends on what area you want to focus on. You know for a the business part of the industry you're seeing furloughs layoffs and tournaments and or jobs that will never come back. Rogers Rogers Cup just announced. It's cancelled and tennis. Canada just furloughed all sorts of people. And it's their intention to bring people back but you just don't know you don't know what the what the future holds think about all the teams that Think about all the people who work either for a sports team and just think about like well the vice president or the public relations person or the or the player but all the jobs that are associated around sports the bars and the restaurants that do business on game days people who Who Work in the businesses in the neighborhood outside of ballparks vendors who provide sports teams will whatever they provide so the reason. It's a six billion dollar businesses. Because there's so many ancillary parts connected to it so very few people are not impacted by it at least culturally or psychically. But then there are millions of people who are literally economically impacted by it and those are the ones. I think about because the reality is all the jobs. Don't come back you know. My Hope. Is that most do? But I'm a realist to know that all won't what have we learned about? Who's getting taken care of an? Who's not since this has begun in the sports world. You know I've seen A lot of athletes and and some teams reaching to take care of their employees and then some outcries over other teams just letting everybody going letting them fend for themselves. Well usually learn who you know or again to sort of have these larger takeaways. At this point I think is impossible and probably a little arrogant and that we don't know what the world is going to sort of hold for us six months from now what it doesn't terms of a Sort of a micro focus is it does tell you what what institutions are community minded. What organizations are trying their best to save jobs versus doing immediate cuts? But I would say honestly for the most part. A lot of these sort of questions won't get answered for for months. We don't really know what it means because we still don't know how long how long were in this abnormal situation. And they're going to be parts of North America that returned faster and parts of North America. That a more conservative don't and we don't even know the impact of of what that means you know on a personal note. I support listening to the medical professionals and scientists and if that means we have to stay at home longer means that at the same time. I'm very fortunate where I have a job where I'm able to do that and still navigate. You know there are other people who hands so. It's just very hard to to answer that question organizations that really care about their employees. I think will do come up with the most creative solutions. They can't ultimately save jobs. Preserve Jobs. I wanted to ask you about the big picture. I but now on On more micro level you're doing daily sports radio and now You've launched a sports podcast at a time without sports What the heck you guys talking about. Well you'd be surprised. I mean if you have enough creative in And Smart People. And I'm not referring to myself on that is sort of behind the scenes people and producers technical directors etc. You can come up with stuff like the the fact is like the Nexus of sports and covert nineteen is is pretty significant from what these leaves are thinking now to what players are doing to athletes who are connected to medicine right now and some of the more remarkable things that that they're doing everybody essentially within this has a story that's kind of why they're still a lot of content to do. It's because every person in the sports world in some ways impacted this you know. Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred are impacted in a certain way commissioners of Leagues. And they have to figure out what the how to navigate the next path where. Hayley wickenheiser is impacted differently. Someone who's a former athlete but also an emergency room doctor? So you know has to sort of navigate that world so at least for both the sports on pause as well as writer's block I I have

Inside the 24 hours that shut down the sports world

"Michael Grange is senior writer at sports net he covers the NBA or at least did before was suspended. Hi Michael Jordan. I'm doing all right. We're just trying to keep up as I talk to you and I'm sure you've seen it the. Nhl HAS JUST SUSPENDED. Its season as well. It's just remarkable How the pace of these things. It's almost kind of a symbol or an apt emblem for the problem. That that's Kinda confronting everybody is is you look at how this this issue affected the sports world and it was you know just to the pace of three or four days space three or four days? It was kind of incremental. You know people were paying. There's a little bit more urgency around it and then you know everything's just kinda come on like a tidal wave and You know that's roughly I think How the kind of manifest itself through populations is You know it's sort of a little bit of a creep a little bit of concern and then all of a sudden. It's too late and things kind of spiraled and Guy Can't really recall anything. Released a sports where the things and news and developments have come so quickly and rapidly and suddenly described the scene at the NBA game that forced the suspension of the season because that seemed to really be the tipping point. Four all of this very interesting. I mean The Oklahoma City Thunder were hosting the Utah Jazz. There was some concern that there is sort of like the Star Center for the Jazz. You know was ill. He'd been kind of exhibiting signs of I think he'd been tested for strep throat was exhibiting signs of being unwell and he was given a task for Kobe nineteen I believe the day of the game and he so he never went to the arena was home but had turned out the team's hotel but had that test been negative that he simply had a kind of a more common kind of flew his expectation plan was to play the game and the So the two teams are floor. The music is playing. Crowd is in the building. You know the the tip is approaching and right around the time when the ball would've been going up and and all of that you know one of the The team medical officials for the Oklahoma City centre kind of came running out of out of the back of the building onto a data. Deficient gathered to coaches and my understanding. Is that the player tested positive for covert nineteen. You know those are responsible came very quickly. After that it was determined they would have to at least have to postpone that game. It takes them a while to figure out how to relay that information to the crowd they did and you know within the hour almost of that decision the NBA realized that had to suspend operations for the possible. What had the discussion around this virus and the MBA or even to this virus and sports In the bigger picture being leading up to that what kind of measures I were being taken. What were people considering? Because I got the sense that this escalated very quickly you says correctly you know the NBA has gotten a lot of credit for being very proactive and a little bit ahead of the charge as a release the other North American sports. I don't know if she claimed. In this instance you know we saw how rapidly this escalated in parts of Asia and Europe and is of last week you know the the first kind of acknowledgement of the virus by the NBA was You know kind of an internal memo that was never made public but kind of out saying no players Daffy be conscious of Of you know sort of shaking hands and kind of dropping slapping hands you know. Go with a bunch of bumps fist-bump when your own or don't feel obligated to sign autographs. So he's doing about the players. I mean themselves from you. Know actions with the public The next stage of that but it wasn't taken seriously and I certainly saw players can figure doing that and The only really making a big deal of it. Which goes I think the way while people were kind of looking at it as recently as a week ago. I believe it was on Tuesday that you know the lead and and in conjunction with the other Major North American sports panel putting New Measures. About how the media would interact with players. You know they're out to keep a certain distance between players during interviews and that there wouldn't be no more scrums I'd access everything would be kind of a press conference type setting and again. That was all seen as a preventative. Measure to keep the players distanced. So that's Tuesday on things by this time we're really escalating. Really think was sort of you know where where a lot of news is really coming out and the pictures getting more grim and so on as of Wednesday afternoon the Board of Governors of the leaks representatives from each of the franchise are kind of represented. The owners of each of the franchises themselves were on conference calls in hand and trying to come up with a plan and at that point the plan. Wise try to keep playing games but maybe one to limit fans or maybe role you also game is supposed to be in Boston. Concerns about it out. Great maybe the game can be played in Boston and Detroit. It'LL BE BOSTON DETROIT. Sorta thing road game until Home Game. So you know again. It's sort of like half measures but when newly found out a player was positive then they their hands were forced because if he kind of you know the NBA is such a small community and says his travelling circus tall man. You know they they are kind of bounce around the continent gone and you. Do you know somebody on twitter. She did an exercise like this. And show that if you only need to go back is about five or six days and you see all the players that go bare played against and then all the players. Those players played against any almost entirely covered within a five day span. Certainly ten days so at that point you know it. Writing was on the wall that they you know they couldn't simply couldn't continue because you don't know who else is in fact good and it's turned out one other player it's been infected with the jazz and all the teams that have been a better played the jazz including the Toronto Raptors in the past ten to fourteen days are now kind of are now being tested so tell me what that means for the raptors in particular because they played the jazz and what it means for sports in Canada well as it relates to the raptors. I mean you know it's just a kind of a complete one eight You know they played in Utah Monday night and I was sort of the end of the longest folks up to the season and you know the raptors were to form their short handed goals. Whatever reason not to win the game getting there on the road and played the four or fatigue and all the rest of it and You know their usual kind of plucky courageous thing and won the game and and came home on the on a red eye. Charter came after the game. So theraflu red eye type flight landing in Toronto early Tuesday morning and I'll be right and they weren't scheduled to play again until this coming Saturday. So they had a few days off which is right there in the NBA schedule that you got consecutive days off and You know a couple of the coach. Nick nurse had had his own into this charity scheduled to the hotel to in our other player charity events and all that went off without a hitch around nine thirty pm ever getting -CATIONS and The of what's going on and by you know by midnight a number of players are good number of the players had contested at a Toronto Hospital. The all the traveling party with the Raptors so broadcasters medical personnel seems security personnel You know there's a party for fifty people They all were required. They've been tested. My understanding most have today and so they're just waiting for the results of that. I think my understanding is should take twenty four hours from the time the test and you know and that'll dictate next move. Seventy this in the media term advised to Not only quarantine but isolate. So you know. It's sort of isolate themselves within else but the expectation is you know about your community or your home you know and just kind of hope for the best regarding the outcome of these tests. But it's you know it's a it's a massive development as it relates to the

But it's just the way it broke. And that means we watch so very excited to come on, and speaking of which, by the way, the wo- JR podcast is come to ESPN July burst just in time for free agency. Get all the information reaction to which stars going, where guests who his first guest is going to be. What's up? We think I mean unless you bought Myers, I'll get bumper Bob Myers. Although nobody likes bonfires now. So I have so many things to deal with here. I can't wait to do this whole podcast. I actually was in San Francisco slash Oakland. What last night for game six it was the last deal again. So that's why we did this Friday. He's back in Connecticut. So, yeah, we'll have. Oh, John a little bit later and kind of look ahead. But there's a lot for me to do. And I don't know where I really wanna start. I should start with Toronto because they one right? Well. No, I mean, I don't know if I should have you on the podcast today. I'm afraid why? Just because, you know we both agree to much. It's not even that we agree to much both like Golden State fair. That's right. But I have some things that I just find the warriors injury thing, a little bit more interesting. Yeah. I mean I, I don't know. Yeah, but we start with Toronto. Okay. Let's start with Toronto respect for Toronto because despite all this. I think it's always kind of funny, how all of this works now is that if you like one team or whatever I've never hated Toronto. I think it's pretty clear. I've not enjoyed the Kyle Lowry stuff over the years, plural. But look that guy came out game six was on fire. We're looking around just give you some perspective. I did the hoop stream show pre-game from the core. Really cool to be in that building. I did tweet out that I don't know if anybody's been oracle more than one game and has zero wins that's me. So for Mr. warrior over here have made it twice in a week for the first time ever, they lost both times, so to see the raptors come out. The greatest. There's so many different things about this raptors team that admire one that when it's new, you, you saw team that never really got that flustered..

"The architect of the NBA, who could everybody would want, and what do you page and Kevin black stone the tiebreaker here is going to go in favor of Israel Gutierrez because he had the Toronto Raptors in in the finals. Is that absolutely? It is. Yes, we haven't seen any. Videotape. You don't want to see the video. I got tapes. I. So Dan Gutierrez showdown only time for one and it's going to be USA versus Chile Sunday, all the goals, all the celebrations versus Thailand early this week. Todd was ranked thirty fourth in the world, Chile is ranked thirty nine now, they play in different confederations, whether that means one's better than the other you guys can ascertain that on your own. But the question I have for you and George, you could start us off. You think the way the game for Thailand played out will change the way US plays Sunday and react Sunday. What would that mean? I don't think it changes the way they play, they're gonna keep attacking and scoring as much as possible. But I do think the way they celebrate could be different but they won't admit to that part of it. They'll just say, hey look, we had people who scored their first goal in that first match. That's no longer the case. We've been there and we've done that. And that's why it'll be muted. I don't think that they will, and I don't think that they should this, this team has a group of leaders that are defiant. They're not passive this. Is the stuff that these women have worked their entire lives for? And if they are on the verge of the most dominant World Cup run ever, which after that first game you never really know. It could be the may should celebrate every single goal because this is what they're going to remember most for their entire believe the criticism in any way is a conversation in the back of their heads at this point right now, Israel. I do and I do, but I do think they're going to be defined about it, and they're going to celebrate at the level, whatever that feels normal and natural. Well, let's see what your celebrators level normal natural for you. Is there a good Sierras take the FaceTime? Thank you very much. I'd like to spend a little bit of time talking about this Tyson fury. Tom Schwartz fight. It's on ESPN plus on Saturday, just wanted to let you guys know what it feels like to watch Tyson fury, man, who's been very open about it beliefs. Including the fact that homosexuality and the acceptance of it is a sign that the world is ending. It makes me feel like I don't matter. It makes me feel like my friends don't matter. It makes me feel like my partner doesn't matter. It takes me right back from my teenage years in my early childhood. When I looked around and thought everybody was looking down on me that, that I'm lesser than just because this way, I was born, but I'm still gonna watch and I'm going to hope that it strengthens me because it's because of guys like that, that I have to fight every single day.

"It's still going to be remembered as the first championship that he won after San Antonio. Toronto's first championship and cetera. But just like you can't ignore the fact that only play twelve minutes in this series and Klay miss some time as well. You can't ignore the fact that these injuries are part of who this team is they've played one hundred plus games for five plus seasons. It was going to happen at some point, and this is the way it happened. Collapsing ugly right before our eyes. That's part of what this team because they weren't so good for so beacon you put it percentage on it percentage of the series was raptors percentage. It was the injuries. The warriors had well right now it certainly seems kind of overwhelming when you see Kevin Durant go down with a blown Aquiles when you see clay go down with an ACL that it has. So. Much to do with injuries. But let me remind everyone that in two thousand fifteen the Cavaliers came into the finals against these warriors without Kevin love who'd been hurting the play offs and then had kyri urban go down in the middle of those finals and had to have had to have a Belva, Dover, a join up with, with LeBron and then try those warriors. How many people look back on that and say, oh, the warriors won that heavenly right about is this one different because it's Durant? And because it's Klay Thompson, and a happened right before our eyes on the court what key moments at probably has they're probably has a lot to do with it. But I think that when you look back, five years from now, I don't think that everybody is going to be remembering that the rewards get your arms around that Toronto really I'm actually going to give you percentages is no one has sixty five percent the raptors thirty five percent for the injuries with the warriors. Here's the deal, man. The, the raptors were seventeen and five this regular season. Without Kawhi Leonard. They are really good team. They won more games than the warriors in the regular season. Even if Kevin Durant was healthy they were as good as anyone this year as far as one through ten on their roster. So you gotta give them a ton of credit. Would he page? I'm a could sixty forty because they won three games on the road. They won five consecutive road games. I mean you gotta give them a great deal of credit for that. The fact again that they look at the warriors they looked old and tired last night worn out curry didn't play very well. I mean what was left of that team? Just the remnants of it just didn't play well the rafters continued to get better. If you think about it during the series, they got stronger. So give them sixty percent forty percent because of what happened. Just pick it up storylines here finals, MBP qui-. How does winning the title change his president is future, and one more thing, and this will take some self reflection on your part, but you guys are you guys a game? Right. Not quite as part. But on your part, what does it tell you about how you viewed him before the way he was talked about through all of last year in San Antonio, the way the work quitter and not a team player was attached to George? I. Well, personally, I was very much side the whole time I always felt like look, these guys know their bodies better than we do. And if they didn't if you didn't feel comfortable in that situation in San Antonio. We should give him the benefit of the doubt in hindsight. We've now seen that with Kevin Durant here recently. Right. And I think that's where we are as people in the media who cover these sports and talk to people. We have to understand that these guys bodies there a temple man..

A few things. Okay. Co wa Linter. Is right now, the king of the court, and here's what is situations like this people become media, groupies, and they wanna talk about, oh, it's LeBron. Oh, it's K D in all work like that. And sports I you I hold the trophy on the do right now there's a game called king of the court in this player of the week.

Zero lottery picks. Okay. So that cohesion of will let the coach of the year go into Wayne, Casey. We'll let the Margaret rose Ingo Kawara Linnart inner, he's an all-star MVP level player. You have cow Laurie. Who's a five time all star? But this is how you get it done. The value of team game one van V badly Siaka soul a game. Three soul a game. Four Danny green gain five surge of offer and you know what ended up happening in the final game. Everybody showed up every Toronto Raptors without curve. Kevin durant. Can I say this into a microphone because we're gonna keep saying what happened to the warriors, the Toronto Raptors without Kevin Durant plan for the warriors are just a better team. That's giving their credit. It's true. And it was truly team victory as you mentioned with all the row players showing up on the road. But I'm glad you brought Coa Leonard because at the end of the day, the finals MVP was the best player on the best team. He's done it with the Spurs now. He's done it with the raptors. He's taken down the warriors. He's taken down the heat. What does this postseason run? Tell you about where he ranks among the best players in the NBA. He's a three peak chiller now. I'm not a fool if the goes, they were warriors, Katie picked them in five. If Clayton injured bought away, we don't normally see those types of injuries happen so wish both of those guys get will maybe they would have won game six but the raptors are going to win this series with this challenge. Be about Kawai is he's the third person in the history of the Lee to win finals MVP for two different teams that's reinventing yourself. We see Kareem do it. We seen LeBron do it now. We see kuwa- do it on the biggest stage and he's the first person to ever do it in both conferences. And if you look at Coa Leonard he is a free agent in just weeks. He will be a free agent. Do you see him signing with the raptors you see him moving on, like he would? I see a situation that's going to upset the applecart in Toronto was, you know, how much I want him to stay and the parade in Toronto is going to be the most massive thing that the history of the NBA has ever seen don't get it twisted. You know how much I love Toronto that nascent is gonna go, but nana's for their parade. But the Washington Wizards are going to mess it up with a wrap this because they're going to sign messiah Jiri..

It is finally time the NBA finals are upon us game one is tonight in Toronto where you are. Jalen, you said something on the show yesterday that you really need to explain you really think Katie or no. K D, the raptors will win the NBA finals. I do I do do do do do do do do do do do. Here's what KBA playing game one and the way walked to the airplane don't look like you'd be ready for game two for me team with homecourt advantage. A lot of depth up front like the Toronto Raptors half in this series gives them the opportunity to actually win it all this year. That's why. I'm surprised to hear you say this, because even without Katie, you know, this worst seem one seventy three regular season games. You know that. Right. Draymond klay. Steph, how will the rare earth boats play? The same team. This is not the same team. That's what their motto was strength in numbers and wild that model has continued to carry. It's not what you see on the floor. They don't have the, the level of depth that they used to have. So again, I and -ticipant the raptors winning this series, number one, because they don't have K D plan for the warriors. Number two, all of the bodies that you could throw Edry mind. Green up front co- walking gets a minute. So can pass cow siato Serge Ibaka waxing play really well versus the Golden State Warriors in both games this year, and even Mark the Sola different points of the game, all of those files, all of those bodies, all of that lint all of that physicality to each of those guys came bring in that lettuces them to opposed.

"She didn't give pass calcium in the deal in Pasco Ceac is kind of a safety net if Leonard leaves that's the guy you try to develop to be your next star. Oh, janet. Obese and other guys at kind of curse season. He's had a really sad off season. But another guy they have high hopes for. There's still something here if Kawai leaves. But if you leave your ceiling drops dramatically, it's not even close to the same thing for the raptors. I absolutely was worth going for quite because you don't get chances at guys like this ever like if you call up that they didn't even bother me gonna call Anthony Davis because the pelicans weren't gonna trade him even even when he was trying to get out. He wasn't kind of lined up for Toronto. If you get a chance to get a superstar like this, you take a swing so many general managers in so many sports, don't put themselves out on a limb. They don't go for the biggest risks. They try to manage to keep their job for another year and another year reason worried about his job. He's not worried about the future so much. I mean he wants to set up the future of choline stays changes everything. But if he doesn't, then they keep going, and they had a shot at a championship, and I think like they're in the NBA finals, they have a shot at a championship so five thirty eight. Has the represent a fifty five percent chance of winning the series, which I think with the prize. Everyone considering they're going up against one of the great juggernaut squads in history of the NBA and also team that seems to be getting better as a playoffs playoffs progress, even as they seem to lose bigger and bigger pieces. Right. They left the markets cousins in the first round loss, Katie for. He's still out. He's I think he's not gonna play in game one. What is going on there? I mean, you know, co is been worldly, obviously as everyone said, but the raptors would at least have to hold serve at home to win the series. The warriors Ozzy amazing. So I mean, does that surprise you favorite ones in thirty eight? Yeah, that number is a little high for me. Because I haven't at about fifty percent to be honest. If you're gonna make the argument for the raptors and I say, this knowing Golden State Warriors panic they've seen every situation, they are absolute champions, Steve Kerr said it really well they're effing giants. Right. The raptors don't expect Kevin Durant series and even despite that I think that Golden State is Golden State, and that's a that's the team. But if I'm making our argument for the raptors. I think this is the best defensive team in the playoffs. They have to defensive players of the year in your starting line-up, plus PASCAL. Ceac moon is going to be an all defense guy. Danny green who is in a slump, but is a borderline all defense guy. Kyle lowry. Excellent defensive point guard. Fred. Vanfleet searcher Baca. There's no one to attack on this team. And when you look at the warriors, the warriors have two scores right now they have clay Steph and those guys are unbelievable. But I think the raptors can take away dream on green. I think they can take away a lot of the, the other members of the Golden State Warriors. I think are going to be overmatched a lot of situations. The real question for me with Rapids, are they're gonna make shots 'cause people underrate, how good the Philadelphia, seventy Sixers were that starting lineup was in Nyland force. I think but walkie was a really good team. This raptors team Milwaukee one sixty and they tried to win every game Yannis misleading ten but they tried to win every game team this raptors team sat Kuiper quarter of the season..

And he's he so she gets for all NBA but during the regular season, nobody was looking to Lowry. Like, oh, we got to get rid of. He was doing. He was an ASTA, and it was winning games. Without Kawhi meet the war reason, why I had it's not it's not I was depending on Carleen Kyle Lowry at all. I don't I don't know what he's going to raise him. He can give me twenty. He can give me zero points. Now. But the thing was I thought this point casper, the Toronto Raptors we'd be a lot better than what they are defensively. When I was somebody pulled up two hours. I think how we're gonna have some diplomas because this team is different than the previous teams in a previous playoff teams with the roles, and he was literally the second guy after like what you're saying you have Kawai then you have PASCAL. And now you have all these pieces that there is no pressure really for him. All he really has to do show up. He's still the natural. What up his shoes, I know? I don't I don't really know. What was going on it? So it wasn't a flagrant foul on. Why he got fined if you really watch the cavalry literally cetera that man here. And that means they get off of me and he got hit. How can I don't know how you can intentionally hit somebody in that part without looking at them. So he still got the raptors coming out. I think they're going to look back in kind of realized that they're still the one of the best teams in the NBA. And they got to continue what they did in the regular season. They they shouldn't be the second game. The game too. Was the game. They should have one year. I think that was kind of an excuse Buso. In a mindset, you could say maybe this series at one one for them. I know they down to one, but they got to come in this women's like, they just gonna blow them out every time. They can't they can't let it go down. Everyone decant let support in case you can't let somebody's here is start rolling. Even the ones of the much of their star is really like, you know, we can kind of maybe allow him to school hundred ten points. It's the Peru problem is that there's only one guy on his raptors team that showed up last night on Koa Pasco had twenty but his points are in transition when they put Joel and beat on pass. He hasn't been able to do anything in the half court all of his points coming transition. And of course, we talked about cow. Danny green is struggling from three this entire playoff series. Margot saw is afraid to take shots, which is crazy. He's been opened so often this series. He just won't take the shot. And I hate that he's fallen for. Joel Embiid pump fake Scott that Tommy he's got that. Tommy puff man is hard. That's awful lizards weren't they just let him shoot three..

Well, if you were paying attention over the weekend, you saw that Vince cadre Dwayne Wade buy stuff. Maybe the time who knows they've got another couple of games on the schedule. But you never know injuries or whatever. So I decided to look back when they first played and it was back in two thousand and three. Of course, that's when Dwayne Wade was drafted by the heat. And the first time they play was an awful guy. The school was sixty six to seventy eight the he want Dwayne wait till school that day with sixteen points. So can unite the starting five for the Miami, Heat the The Toronto Toronto Raptors Raptors. in two thousand three. Two thousand three which team. Do you want to start with let them fly?

"I can feel their angst day stroke, you absolutely right about that. So very true last year. The Cavs played the raptors raptors I can't remember what time of the year was once they was January or something like that. Raptors were off to their great start. They were headed towards the number one seat. How? Tell me gives the fifty nine games. So they were on their way to a sixty one type season. And I remember standing in the caz locker room when I was standing with one of their veterans, and he was holding the box from that night caz at one because they've been killed the first thing they play the raptors represented by thirty five. I'm the guy's going down the list of the names of the rafters. Teeth. And he's saying do you trust this guy in the playoffs? No, do you trust this guy? No you trust this guy. You just this got. Okay. I trust this guy. And we really only have two and a half names. And it was like two and a quarter almost because it depends on where you put surge upon parade. And when it came down to it who damn accurate. Okay. So now look at the raptors roster. I will look at it. Now. How many guys do we trust? The we know that we trust in the playoffs. Well, I'm trusting Kawhi Leonard the man's finals MVP. I'm Justin Kyle Lowry. You are I'm hell you he he I know that he's had some variants. But I know he's going to bring it. He's going to play his heart out. Also think for Kyle personally, I think the fact that they now have definitive number one guy in it's not him tomorrow at co leading. I think will help a lot in the playoffs. Interesting can fall right in line. I'm putting Danny green is somebody that can I'm a he hundred percent. He's not gonna like carry your team. But he's not going to be frayed of the moment. He was on track to win a finals MVP. If felt to me like he didn't miss for six weeks during that finals all right now now again into the gray area, can you count on surgery Baca. He's playing so you search search Baca at the five has been a revelation. He's been awesome. He was awesome. Tonight's game. Last year. I looked at GM nobody. So that'll kick county MS rookie. He was really good in the playoffs. His cO GNA no beans say that's we've gone from a deaf. No into the gray area already. Look how much different the raptors are. And let's keep in mind that they are in most situations are going to have the best player on when they play the broad. And I'm not there with Pasquale Seok. Oh, come on. You have to. Why don't you do all you do is go around to tout his future? Well, I like his game a lot. But I'm not there yet. But but even grading is trying to great hard. They're even there. I think we've we've we we've come a long way for Toronto. And the Kawai addition like it's almost like a player and a half. And that's a team that's going to be a lot better. I think in may and June than now because all these young guys are all going to be a lot better Siaka is going to be a lot better. And nobody's going to be a lot better. They have all these young guys barely play together. They played one game with everybody on the roster. That was Friday in Phoenix. Teams last season the rockers relied on their bench a lot where a lot of these guys were residing. So it's not like they're new to the league. Right. I'm just saying like, you know, you you you didn't look at them and say, okay. This is what the Cavs looked at them. I mean, clearly, they didn't fear them. So I also believe that at some point this year, the raptors will add another player whether it's through by out whether it's through trade that they have they have chips the play..

"It's Brian win wars. Then the collect featuring Tim Bon temps brand new ESPN employee and own young miscue. And joining us later if it works out. Mcmanamon? It works out. We're in the LA office, the LA base free SPN within the company, it's known as the L A. But is that important the podcast? It's important that everyone knows that you're all in the room. Yes. We're all together. We've just watched the Lakers play the raptors on Sunday night. So the raptors moved to nine one tonight co I did not play and they still got up forty one to fourteen or was it worse was a forty six to four forty forty one to ten forty one ten thirty one points as forty two seventeen after one. It said a whole bunch of records. But we don't want those too much on this game. Because it really in the grand scheme of doesn't mean that much. But I was a matter. Stuck with the Lakers little bit later in dating. It's here you said in the grand scheme of things this game. Doesn't matter. How many games has have to be played before you decide? Something matters. Good question. Alm? How many games have to be? I would probably say. I'm gonna go with like forty five forty forty two forty five. I let's say ten ten. The Lakers played ten. Oh. I think the raptors I think that's true. I think you know, a lot about team twenty games in twenty games. Officially I would. Remember when the nets are under a kid, and Garnett and Pierce. What what was that start? It was horrible. That was passed twenty games. It was passed funny games. They very bad that also was very strange season, including. But it's not it's not it's not a uniform rule because like the Lakers, for example, could be a lot different as a teen when their makeup as a team come February. I think you know, a good amount of team ten games in. And I think a quarter of the twenty games. I think is when you have a really solid a really solid team. I also think that the twenty game thing is something that front office is kind of dude because well now we start early because trade season really begins to summer fifteenth. That is when all the guys who signed it free agency are able to be traded usually it's roughly twenty five percent of the league. And so you can't trade and before then was kind of hard to do some traits. Right. So usually about December fifteenth is usually around the twenty to twenty five game marvel now we started mid October two little actually more than that. But usually that's where the you know when trade season begins Tracy's and goes from December fifteenth to the first week of February where the trade deadline is. And that's the. Twenty game usually marple now, it's more. So that's two months, right? February mid February to mid December. Yes. Two months, I twenty games. Like, I feel like you could be in a relationship with somebody. You wouldn't even know that person for two months, you're still this very hard. Right. I don't feel like in the first week of November. We have there's anything that you can say for sure other than the warriors are really good and the raptors are really good. They're really good. Although Mr. Bontemps said to me tonight that the raptors are the team that's gonna come out of the east, and we'll be in the NBA possible. I believe I think I think this team. team let us not even that hot of the take the best team in the east. Right now, there's certain circumstances involving very long lanky forward who is missing games here and there, but if he's healthy, and they're out the the best thing you still have a coach who's never been there before. And you also have a team that's never really gotten over the hump before. And I get it demar doors is gone, and you've got like a new store there. But I don't know. I mean that the the cast around them. Yes, they are deep. They have young guys who learned last year and LeBron is not in the east. But I still until I just see I've been bitten too many times by the Toronto. Raptors there I've seen too many failures in the postseason. So I know I probably sound Canadian right now..
