smooth, smooth, smooth, smooth sub everybody, uh, shilling for tonight.
Bringing in semi should be coming in shortly.
We'll talk about some clutch points articles, man, but yeah, basically, MBA season's done getting to some postseason stuff.
No, Stephen Foster and Kim.
I'm still working on my Carollo's video man.
Really work busy at work.
So, guys that gave me a little time.
Tennessee Time's up 21 10 right now in Buffalo but producing game.
But yeah, similar here.
All right, let's Let's get to it boots.
And I don't know just going on with you, my man.
How you feeling? Chilling, chilling, chilling man s. Oh, yeah.
NBA seasons done, man.
Unfortunately, it Lakers one.
That's, um, news coming up with some MBA stuff.
How did you feel about their the finals, man? Uh, how did I feel about the finals? I mean, I expected the Lakers to win.
Um, it was only I mean, it wasn't as exciting as I thought, though.
Yeah, I think it was gonna be a much more exciting.
Yeah, I think that you know as much.
I wanted the heat to win.
I mean, you just look at the Lakers and they just They just had different gears to turn over, man.
I mean, like you said, they expected to win.
I wish there was more even matchup, But I guess not.
But I got to give credit to KCP.
Guys like Rondo who stepped up big.
They were making some big shots.
Played really great defense.
Obviously A B or bruh.
I will say, for next year.
I would love to see that heat team stayed together in Joe.
I don't want to see them bringing the honest in.
Uh, you know, maybe the draft a few guys hand there may be some more athletic wings that can provide some size.
Probably shoot a little bit.
You know, a guy like a JD McDaniels.
If you get his attitude, turn right, his motor turn right.
You know, he could probably be, you know, special for a team like the the Miami like the heat, But yeah, we'll see, man, I just I just hate now.
You got LeBron James talking about, you know? You know, You know, show me.
My respect is like dogs.
You get you literally.
The media praises you every single day.
E have no idea what he was talking about when he said that I Yeah, I So my respect, I mean way literally.
The gold conversation came up because of you.
And you have your lackeys in the media saying that you should get a goat.
You literally went on TV or your show, Whatever.
You know, the wine barbershop crap and said that was the greatest finals of all time, despite the fact you had no reason for you kept saying was that I was ecstatic.
Okay, we're all ecstatic for something, you know, You got someone you get.
I mean, I don't know if he just he literally has the, uh, media.
He's trying to make himself like this, like, this underdog kind of thing.
To make it like it was like, yeah, like, yeah, I don't understand that guy.
He just told me I respected LeBron James when he Well, I don't respect going to Miami, but I respected the so called evil LeBron James when he is with the heat.
And he was kind of like, remember when he came on TV and they were like, oh, asks, like, responded something, somebody at me or something like that.
He was like, um, yeah, I don't really care, man.
They you know me.
They wake up every morning shoveling their payment or something like that trying to be me.
And I was like, Yeah, this is this.
I think this is the evil LeBron James.
You're not an underdog.
You are literally the favorite all the time.
You're supposed to play like you're the favorite of the time.
There's a reason why people love Kobe.
There's a reason why reason why people love starting stars that they take it like Look, I'm never gonna be that underdog type, because maybe I have supportive skills, athleticism, and, you know, let me embrace the evil roll.
Let me embrace the villain role.
Hey, calls him flat.
But he caught some flack for that, though.
You know what I mean? Like when you got up to me and he was like, You know, you know, you guys are gonna go back to your You know, people are talking about me.
You're gonna go back to your miserable.
I don't know if you've been sitting in a but he called mad black for that.
Hey, let it because I mean because you know, and then you know he was doing things like LeBron James.
Team this, a LeBron James team that you know.
I don't think you have to play the underdog role, but you could be humble.
You could be because you know what? You know what? As much as people say they like the good guy, there's a reason why movies like Scarface did well like if you want coffee.
Montana was terrible.
He's not a good guy whatsoever.
But like you said, you root for the bad guy because it's like there's an edge to it.
There's a reason why you like Darth Vader.
Yes, Darth Vader.
Luke, you're my son.
But Darth Vader was e.
I mean, he was bad.
You root for him now.
I'm not saying you sit there and you gotta issue in people's lives or whatever, right? But let's be honest as much as I give LeBron James fact. Flack.
There were a lot of people who a lot of reporters like, for instance, Stephen A.
Smith yesterday with Skip Bayless there, guys who are literally the media, or maybe not as much anymore.
But there are jerks who literally just come out of LeBron James for everything, right? So, like, I never went LeBron James outside of dunking at your school, your son school.
So potential horse up.
Other stuff I give LeBron James credit for like in terms of he being, you know, on the surface of of being a good dad, blah, blah, all this other stuff, you know, he doesn't have, like, 30 kids here and there.
He's not, you know, I mean taking care of his business.
Hey, why would I issue on that? And there are people who literally, we're trying to poke it heavy little thing he did.
That's all right.
Look, just keep it to basketball.
Many crazy things, he says.
But just keeping the basketball out of stuff if he's not doing some crazy.
So to me, I was just like, Hey, LeBron James, you were when you talk about Michael Jordan obviously talking about he didn't make his high school team, even though he's a freshman.
But you know, the whole Michael Jordan thing.
You know him with the Bulls All those years, he toiled at all that stuff, and it's like he overcame that.
That's his story.
But LeBron James, you came in anointed you know? I mean, just take that.
It's fine to be this overwhelming king that dominates the league.
There's nothing wrong with that.
And if people don't like it Oh, well, they're still gonna watch you.
You're not gonna watch them.
I'm just saying, man, I like it when villains appreciate that.
They're villains, man.
There's no need Thio the all phony about it.
But enough about that. Terrible.
Unless you have something else to say about it.
But no, I mean, it's not Not much.
Not much to say about the finals.
I mean, the Lakers wanted, um they do have to find a way.
Thio Anthony Davis is going to be a you know, he has the choice to opt out. I guess.
S e does You're probably opt out, right? Because he may be looking for a longer term contract so he might opt out and then, you know, resigned because I think if he opts out that he can probably get a longer term contract for more money, right? You know, more money per year, so he probably will opt out, You know, for those for those reasons, but he's not going anywhere right.
It's not going anywhere.
This is how it's gonna go.
He'll be in l. A.
LeBron is gonna be there for the next three years.
LeBron a retired.
And then in comes Ben Simmons.
You got Ben Simmons and Anthony Davis.
I could definitely see that.
That's how I think.
Yeah, that's how I think it's gonna end up going.
The I agree with you about Benson is talking to magic was the last year or the year before this year, last year, Whatever.
And you know, I mean and magic.
I mean, he's an idiot because, you know, e thinking at the time you still inexact with the l A Lakers or the if, you know, GM on the face of it.
So you don't want tampering, But, you know, you know, Magic is one of those guys.
He wears his heart on a sleeve.
He tell you Hey, I like that. Guys like magic.
We're gonna get fined for that.
I was like, Oh, sorry about that.
Well, I like him anyway.
This all right? Imagine you.
You gotta think a little bit higher when you're nb exact, but yeah, I think.
I think everything is alive for him to come to the Lakers, man.
80 is also a guy who gets injury prone.
He's not get any younger, so we'll definitely see when everything everything comes back, you know, n b A comes back full spin, whatever full strength we'll see, man.
But unfortunately, to go back to your favorite team favorite team, they hate in Brooklyn.
Uh, and your boy, Dirk Nowitzki, Uh, guess comes out that he didn't want to take that job with the Brooklyn Nets.
So work with his boy Steve Nash, for and for all the people who think that that Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Kabul was so special because Mark Cuban tells you again it was cool.
But it wasn't that special where it was like, Oh, my gosh, this is You know, this is the greatest duo since Michael, and it was like they were good, you know, they scored a lot.
Complete defense didn't get deep in the playoffs.
But according to your boy Dirk Nowitzki, in an interview with Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News, he said, First of all, I don't know if I could do it anywhere but here in Dallas, in which he said second, I just think the time is all right.
I love being with family.
I'm so over basketball at this point.
This wasn't even a thought for me.
Now, you know, you've heard guys talk about man.
You know, I really don't wanna be in coach right now.
You know, I got a alot about family right now, and then literally the next year they go back for the job that they actually wanted.
Um, but how do you view this, uh, his comments on that that Brooklyn Nets job? Because again, it's a coaching position where I think that they probably had a lot of time to see a lot of leeway.
But, you know, I think would have been the quickest way for him to get a legit way into E.
Uh, what did they wanted to be in this one of the assistants or something? I'm not sure.
I think it would be one of the assistants along time.
Steve Nash? Yeah, Yeah.
Take the teams coaching staff.
Yeah, I think it's just to be a part of the the coaching staff because because, you know, I never ever heard anything about Dirk Nowitzki wanting to coach, um, or anything like that.
So I you know, I don't even know where it would be coming from unless Steve Nash acts and said, Hey, you know, you want to coach, you know, do you want to be part of what we're doing there? Um, I don't remember ever hearing hearing anything about dirt.
One coach, I mean, since he's been retired, the most that I hear about him is you know, I see him post some stuff on Twitter.
You know, that's the most I see you know, when you're watching some games or something like that Here, post a few things on Twitter and it's nothing ****ytical or insightful is just like from fans.
Point of view, You know what I'm saying? So I don't know.
I mean, why would if it if it was Steve Nash? I mean, why would he just jump and say, Hey, Dirk, like, I mean, I guess because he played with him.
Maybe he thought that he had a high I Q because he played with him.
I mean, I don't know why he would just jumping pull Dirk out out out that you know what I mean? I think I mean, I think it's two things I think it's, you know, it's a situation where I think even Steve Nash might be regretting this like crap.
What the hell I get into and like you said with Dirk, I mean, he's never shown like those coaching shots, But you know, a lot of guys, they sometimes, you know, they obviously they don't want to put the work and go to college or even high school or work their way up.
But they might have in England, like, let me let me try this coaching thing if I got, like, a quick way to it cause I mean coaching again.
It's not the easiest job together unless you are no name or former coach, right? So, you know, I think, yeah, I think he's just like I don't wanna go through the hassle of playing these guys and play, and I'm hearing about Dirk.
In the past, I've never heard of him being egotistical guy.
I think there were several years, but he took less money so the team could get other free agents way he could have gotten higher contract so he seems like one of those guys.
We're just Look, I just wanna relax.
It is not right.
Right? Coming where? It's a team.
Like, if he was gonna come to coach the Miami where you have you have those players as one thing, but yeah, I just I just think that, you know, I agree with 2000% is like, I don't want to take the job, But then again, it's just like wise.
And why put myself with the hassle, right? Right.
And, you know, I don't know how closer friends Steve Nash and dirt card.
Maybe they're close friends.
But, you know, sometimes you get you get into a situation and you just want a friend there, right? You want somebody that someone there with you? It's like, Okay, I'm going through the fire with somebody that I know when I trust, right.
Instead of like, you're bringing in a bunch of coaches that you don't really know, you're not cool with Not to say you're not cool with it.
But you're not friends.
You're not that close.
So you've got these guys there now.
You know, you're the leader, and you gotta go through it.
But, like, who do you have there with you that you just trust And, you know, you can confide some things in.
So maybe it's just something like that. I know me.
You know, if I was going into a situation, I would want to have somebody there that I'm like.
Okay, this is my boy.
And I know I could talk to him, You know, you and he's gonna go through the fire with me, You know, maybe it's just something like that, because, yeah, he he knows if he didn't know when he took the job and any person would have taken the job, right, At least I think I know if they called me, I would have taken the job.
I think anybody would have taken a job, but he knows he's got super duper.
He's got championship expectations, right? You know, I'm saying at least MBA finals expectations at some point that is there.
Maybe not next year that at some point I think you know, you got car V and K d.
I think that's you got expectations on you.
I mean, and, you know, you got to deal with K d.
I think it's probably easy to deal with, especially if he's by himself.
Kyrie, You know that's gonna be a problem. Terrible.
It's gonna be a problem to deal with, especially especially E.
I just thought about this with Steve Nash being a point guard in the type of point card he waas kind of read being the type of point guard that he is.
Oh, I don't know.
No excellent point.
They are given that Steve Nash.
I mean, he owned his chops as more facilitated with the sons.
I mean, well, one thing they have in common, they both not gonna play defense.
But, I mean, that team, that mindset, I just go back to have one common.
He's like, we're all gonna be coaching.
And I'm like, No, no, you know.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
So I Hey, good luck to Steve Nash.
Man, I ain't gonna pray for you because I don't want you all to win anything.
But I will be watching some of your games because I think that's gonna be I think, Yeah, I'm definitely, you know, watching E.
If I'm not watching games, I'm definitely paying attention.
so happens because it's going to be It's gonna be some fun stuff to watch, I think.
Oh, yeah, So, uh, let's get to some possible head coaching news.
So both the Van Gundy's are starting to emerge as a top candidate for positions.
So you have, you know, the great Jeff Van Gundy, all of these.
But the esteemed Jeff Van Gundy allegedly, you know, being a run out for that Rockets job, and then you have his brother being a run out for that pelican job.
Um, I'm not sure about Stan Van Gundy with that pelican scene.
I actually thought, you know, Mani Mani Zamani wins with the sun, you know, obviously his wife passed on myself, you know, he was with the pelicans and had a nice little run when he's there.
But I think that team needs a young coach who's up who's gonna come back with regards to a certain style of play.
Like I think that the High Temple offense would have been great for the for the pelicans, the one that Monty Williams is running with sons.
You know, obviously I mean, you have Devin Booker, but you're saying that that is making you know that team a lot better now.
It looks like elite score because of that right? His efficiencies and went up even though his points essentially stayed the same.
I'm not sure about the Stan Van Gundy, who I think I don't want to say, rubs the guy people the wrong way.
But I think that his hard nose approach right can sometimes get key star players.
Um, little often, obviously.
Dwight Howard, Dwight Howard, Dwight Howard.
You know he is what is, But you know, he struggled.
I believe it was with the Pistons.
Yeah, I mean, and you never seen like this? Sustained? He kind of like, wears out his welcome, even if he could give you one or two seasons of over 500 place.
So you know I don't know about him.
Jeff Van Gundy again.
Look, the only guy I've seen that come back from the booth and be successful is Jon Gruden.
Um, so I just don't I'm not saying he can't do it, but he's been so far removed from the game is this is a different scene, you know, talking about the game, ****yzing it and saying what players universes being in the trenches again? Yeah.
I mean, he's for you.
Could say a whole era of basketball.
He's kind of been out of the game a little bit.
Or at least half of never.
So for the Rockets to I'm not sure style is gonna mess with guys who you know are highly undisciplined.
At least a key guy.
Uh, Westbrook And hard and, uh, high. Undisciplined.
They're going to stay in their ways to do what they think is best.
They're not gonna concede and giving the ball for system.
You know, they want the system's kind of all round.
So how do you feel? Let me not pontificate.
How do you feel about those two runner ups? There's those jobs.
I mean, I don't know.
You know Jeff Van Gundy? I know he's coached with Team USA, so maybe he's, you know, kind of up on what's happening.
I don't know how long ago it was the last time that he coached Team USA.
Um, how would he deal with Harden and Russell Westbrook? I don't know.
You know Jeff Van Gundy? When he coached every time he coached the team.
He had a big man, right? You know, you know, Hey, had Yao Ming, You know, I mean, does he know how toe? I mean, I'm assuming that, Yeah, he would know how to coach without having a big man, but we don't know.
You know what I'm saying? I don't know.
And I don't know if Jeff ain't gonna is gonna come back to coaching E No, I've seen I've seen the article.
Uh, you know that, You know, he could be a candidate or whatever.
I really don't know if he's gonna come back to coaching.
Um, I've never really been that impressed with Stan Van Gundy.
So e never been there and more.
They just How about they just one of those guys be the head coach of the team, another one? Be the assistant coach and just let us watch the reality TV? Siri's as their coach.
Whatever team they're gonna coach together, I actually wouldn't mind seeing them together, man.
And they might better put them.
They get basically kind of, you know, pink ideas off each other.
Probably keep each other in check because they are too mildly guys, right you know, they do like to be right.
And I might say, Jeff Van Gundy, I think both of them have good basketball knowledge.
Just never issue regards to them being bad, coaches regards to exit the nose, just the, you know, salmon.
But you could say the communication of it.
Jeff Van Gundy just been out the game so long as someone said, Steve Curve.
But Steve Kerr went to a team that was already there, you know? I mean, you could pay there, but then again, you know, Hey, was I go? But while Steve Kerr he wasn't really, you know, he had been a general manager for the Phoenix Suns, right? It was the sons.
I think it was the sons and you know, so he had been a general manager for the Phoenix Suns.
Uh, then he then he was broadcasting or whatever.
I mean, he had, at least for an NBA team, not not someone like Team USA for N B A team.
Yeah, at least been there and been around an organization and been in an organization that had sat in on meetings on you know how it should be played this game.
How should we play that game? You know what I'm saying? And he came from, you know, when you look at, you know, with the bulls, they didn't have dominant centers like that, you know, saying they were guard oriented teams anyway, eso you know, I think you know, And yes, he went to Ah, ready made team, you know? Did he take them to another level? Yeah, he did, but he But he was with a ready made team.
I guess Jeff Van Gundy would be going to a ready made team.
But I think that there's never There's so much more regards to winning basketball.
You could argue that the Warriors had a better path to proper winning basketball.
I mean, winning like championship winning versus the Rockets.
The Rockets are team that they're kind of stuck in that quad quagmire where it's like, Do you sit there and you build whether you're really not gonna win on Then on the flip side, like, you know, you got guys in Harden and Westbrook.
They have massive contracts hard.
I could see going someplace else, But a guy like Westbrook.
Yeah, I mean, so it z like, **** if you do you don't? I think it's just two different story.
And also Van Gundy, the way he wants to win.
Steve Kerr came in and really just tweaked a few things.
Our offense utilize Draymond Green a lot more, Um, took the ball out of stuff.
I'm not saying that that's not big and instrumental and making a team win, but it's not as big of a jump as you know, the Rockets where, like you said, Jeff and Jenny likes a big man.
You know Yao Ming.
You know, back in the day we had Ewing with the Knicks.
He likes to, you know, utilize a big man.
And that team has basically been trying to play small ball.
You know, even in the last few years when he had a cappella, You know, you probably run a little more and more small ball, so yeah, I agree.
I don't know where the hell that team is gonna go.
I don't know how I was gonna have, I think Jeff And and I think that's not I think I agree with you.
I think the pelicans job.
Someone mentioned Atkinson.
I think Atkinson could be good for that team, Um, a team that they could run a lot more pick and roll.
That would help a guy like, uh, Alonzo Ball, who obviously is more of a full court kind of press the temple guy.
He's not. I might say you can't play half court.
I look at his numbers this last year, I believe, improved things like it's three point percentage.
Had to see his assistant and free throw, um, or file 500% stuff like that.
But, you know, for a guy who's not a quintessential kind of not quitting but prototypical type of point guard, a guy's gonna have courted, you know, installing the system.
We have a lot more pick and roll, you know, You have him and Zion have ingram on the perimeter attacking from the wings.
Um, you know, get proper rules to everybody.
That team, you know, have Josh hearted your defensive guard.
Um you know, I think Adkinson could work out probably better than and I think he relate.
Mark, you brought up when you're talking about how Atkinson had plans for individual players.
Um e think that that's the type of focus you need for such young but talented guys again.
Ingram, this is first year really breaking out, you know, outside the whole LeBron thing.
Uh, you know, lebron time, you know, the time of the Lakers.
You know, Zion Williamson is another guy who's gonna need I'm scared that you put on him to say, Hey, you just go out there and do your thing.
He's gonna get hurt.
So you need to make sure that first of all this guy's weight is down make sure he's committed to getting his way down, Uh, to make sure you could play for as many years as possible. I think access.
It might be that type of guy with, ah voice that is not grading, but it's it's serious like, Hey, I want you.
You know? I mean, look at how that team with the next play, you know, I mean that next team again, I'm not trying overrated, but you've never heard any words of dissension.
Never heard any words of you know this guy.
I hate this culture.
And he had no bodies on that team, Didn't Woody Nobody's and you could even argue.
Daniel Russell was not saying he's a nobody, but he was a forgot man.
Um, so I think a low price situation for Atkinson we could learn.
Also, learn Mawr sets outside.
Just the pick and roll.
Um, you know, I think that we heard from, so Yeah, I think that would be too.
I don't hear his name much.
Don't hear his name mentioned much.
Uh, you know, when you get these openings.
But, you know, I think that would be a really good situation for him.
Really good situation for him.
Yeah, but, you know, with the Rockets, I don't know what they're going to do.
You know, I don't see that team going anywhere or really being successful.
They just got to mega, you know, two mega stars, one superstar, one star in Russell Westbrook.
I kind of look at him is just a star and someone who could sell shoes and stuff like that.
I mean, he's good, but, you know, he's not a superstar, you know, I don't think he ever ascended to be That s so I don't know what they're gonna do, because they're just, uh I don't know.
I don't think they're gonna They're not gonna win anything in the West, I don't know what you're gonna do, you know? And it's like they were.
All the rockets are all about ****ytics and all of this stuff all of a sudden just throw it out the window.
Just go get Westbrook.
You know what I mean? Not the window.
This is why this is why this is why I appreciate ah lot of the people that you see on the content creators regards to the mix of Guys were putting stuff out there because Daryl Morey had the gumption to sit there in his high horse.
And I think he went to M I t. Whatever.
So suited my dad a friend with m I t smart people.
Um, but when you try to sit there and you try to turn basketball into numbers like Oh, that's that's all it is You just put this guy with this guy and that guy with this guy, you know? I mean, and you you think that you're above the people, watch the game who have a feel for the game will call out the game.
You think that it's all numbers.
You know, these stat geeks, Who will I These guys can't play basketball to save their lives, but they know how to preach everything about, you know, percentage this and percentage that I love the fact that Daryl Morey was, and he also went against his workers.
I mean, what Russell Westbrook really is efficiency before he came to the Rockets.
It's not that good at all.
He's non efficient play whatsoever.
So all that stuff, your monthly and you panic because you have to get rid of a player who actually probably figured system better in Chris.
Paul, uh, made that system better, But you have to basically bow down to who the owner sees is a cash cow right in harden.
And you basically destroyed your team and all that ****ytic stuff went out the window.
Now you're a good boy, because what you said about China, which I don't agree, disagree to what you said about China.
But now you act like a good boy because you want to lose your job.
So you know, I mean, he sat there in his high horse talking about old people with LeBron James the greatest, and people don't know what they're talking about because the numbers and the numbers don't actually say that.
The so called advanced ****ytics like the majority events and Alex Point of that Well, Jones actually still gold.
That's why guys like Max Kellerman actually went back on his word.
He's like, Oh, yeah, well, the events And it would accept the peak.
Um, it's like thes nerds.
And when you see them play ball, they can't play.
Ball is like, Go go behind the scenes.
Just keep creating these like, you know, advanced advanced ****ytics that, you know, on a Thursday, you know, his free throw percentage is this.
When the moon is do that type of stuff, that that's cute, you know, go on Twitter and put That's a these guys who sit there and they try to think that they're above people.
And then I just not say I like to see people fail, but it's just funny to see that whole experiment crash.
I mean, you don't have a guy told in 66 when that team you don't have a guy told 60 on that team.
And look how as much of like Peter talking about you by by your boy a. D.
Absolutely abused right, And you know, like and baseball.
You could say, OK, maybe the ****ytics could work right, because it's a different story.
It's a different type of a game.
There's not physical contact.
Okay? I can see where ****ytics could work baseball, right? You said, Say that again.
You know what I'm saying? Like it's very individual.
Like you have your e.
I mean, guy hits with Ohio BH They put you in a certain place in the batting order, but it's not like, you know, you gotta tagged the runner.
You know, you have to tag your man.
It is like, you know, you don't have todo you know exactly.
You know what I'm saying? So you can really base where he placed people, uh, in the game, all stats in basketball, you just can't do that.
You're saying someone could I mean, too much is based on emotion, physical contact, you know, you could play a player, can e could play one way, and then I get on the floor and I'm looking across from freaking Kawhi.
Leonard and I get scared, and all of a sudden I can't play.
You know what I mean is different.
You know, I mean, so you know, I don't know what the Rockets gonna do.
They're just They're they're done.
I coach and I had my choice.
I'd stay away from the rockets.
Until they swamp, I agreement and I'll take player.
I'm not completely just saying the mess in terms of everything, by the way, first and foremost salute Thio.

Your boy to two boys of yours.
I keep saying this, but it's like, you know, I say so.
Everybody's Oh, your boy.
It's not really but, uh, Temple Trade.
So you got obviously the Mavericks looking at Yanis.
Uh, I wish Mark was in here.
I mean, you also got discussions about should the clippers trade? Uh, poor George for Bradley Bill.
First and foremost, screw the New York Jets.
They just released Levian Bell, Levian Bell.
Whatever team you go to that actually has a competent coach and a decent online e.
I know you're probably watching us, but if you do or come across this, let me just tell you this all the just fans we love you.
I loved your game.
I thought you I thought you were good.
Is receiver Adam Gaze is a clown? Joe Douglas might be a clown.
The owners are clowns are clowns.
Salute to leave Ian Bell wherever you go, man.
I'm gonna watch and support you.
You want my favorite running backs and watch you on the Steelers? One of most patients, smartest running backs in the game.
You want the best toughest receives.
I've seen playing out the slot, playing out wide against linebackers, even against some cornerbacks.
She make tough passes.
You got release.
That's a blessing.
Thank God that you're free.
Why couldn't Why couldn't they do it? Like, why couldn't they have done it in a week and a half ago? So what say you, your Knicks fan, man, like some people, I don't know what it is.
I don't know what it is about New York about New York and sports, where only the Yankees have like competent ownership.
It's something in the water.
New York sports have some of the worst organization.
I mean, literally, it's the Mets and the Jets.
Thank God we got the whole suit to that rich mother effort.
But literally three owners, three different owners and their bad in three.
How can you be an owner? And literally all your job is to do is give people money and hire the right people, and you just sit back and be like, Hi, I'm cool That z if you get me there was 1000 said yo, you're more You don't have anything else in your life But just give me Make sure you run a competent organization and I'll just give you millions of dollars.
I give you all the little skinny models I G models you want front front court, whatever.
You be good for life. You say what? Work.
You love your bell O e Hey, maybe the Giants.
Hey, you never know what e look to him anyway.
That's what I'm saying.
E couldn't have done it a week and a half ago where the Giants could have looked to him.
But maybe they said, Hey, let's look to him anyway. You never know.
I think you need to get a trade for him.
He's way Get to your point cause I'm starting to go.
I'm starting to, like, turn into the Oh, wait about the Clippers training for potential train for Bradley Bill, How do you see him working out with the Clippers? E think that would be good with the Clippers.
I think that Bradley, Bill and Kawhi Leonard together would be good.
I think so, too.
I think that would be really good, I think.
Look, poor George.
You give them money, stupid nicknames, all that crap.
I don't I don't agree with that.
I don't think he's clutch.
I don't think he's a playoff P whatever you wanna call him, because he's been on how many teams.
And if you look at you, he's He's been the bride on many, you know, many weddings, and he's never actually got married.
The champions never got in deep.
The Indiana Pacers.
He thought he was a man.
When what's in the past in that playoff game, you know, he laughed, or whatever he was leaving goes Okay, See? Didn't do anything with that team.
Uh, goes to the Clippers.
Ain't didn't do anything this year, so I think Bradley Bill, I think Bradley Bill would you know he's the type of guy Bradley Bill.
I just feel like he has that gearing him now.
Obviously, been playing the Wizards would kind of suck, but I think that he would relish that opportunity to be, you know, that one be possibly one a plane.
I just say that he would sit there and try toe takeover Quiet, Leonard, but I think that he gives you the chops.
At least be hold focus To be a guy who can take the laurel.
And scoring obviously, is officially Aren't that great? Isn't that great? Uh, but in terms of taking the scoring shops, I mean, for a guy like Paul, George scored 10 points in a Game seven.
I mean, 10 points.
Now, I understand people have bad games, but poor jobs bit more miss than hit.
So e, I think that that would be I think that that would work.
That would work because Bradley Bill can, you know, he could play a multitude of ways.
You could come up, he could come off screens.
He can, uh you know, he can He can go one on one.
He could do a lot of things, and he doesn't have to be like Paul, George and Kawhi.
You know, they kind of have to be, um you know, you are me.
You know, I'm saying they don't really play off each other much.
I think that Bradley Bianco Atlanta could play off each other a little bit more.
Um, I think that that being betrayed I don't know.
I guess the money probably about matches up, you know? And I just want to send a shout out thio s n t I. He asked.
He said something.
I bought it me back.
You could rent it.
You could rent it this week.
E when it hit me up, I'll let you run it E o.
I think the money mass up and And look, the Clippers got do something.
Remember Kawhi Leonard could opt out after you know, Hawaii is Hawaii.
He's learned of the game.
He is all about what he wants to do, which I can't blame him for.
So they already fired the coach.
Usually you I think you get rid of players, know usually get rid of those first n b a and get replaced so I would ever see them get trying to get rid of Paul George Now, obviously.
And it was my take.
I don't know how many years left in poor Jorge's contract.
Uh, but it is Just waste your given.
Maybe Paul Jones got to realize Hey, l a big lights and for you.
You got to go to a place like Washington, try to build it up.
John Wall might be an issue, but if you ever got a point Georgia, I don't think Poor George.
I think this creates sounds crazy.
I don't think he's a one B type I think is a high level to a player where you can sit back and be a complimentary guy.
But you better have a system around where you don't have to depend on him.
For those last shots right, he could come in and the lack of pressure for him to be the number one guy allows him to be to feel more freely toe, try to put up 30 points and play defense that stuff.
But you have to have other players around versus, I think, rally bill with relish.
I think he loved opportunity, played Kawhi Leonard and and and show up and play against Ah LeBron James on the West and try to give it to them because I've seen games where, especially against the Knicks, I've seen games where Bradley Bill has lit it up like he was trying to show out like lighting up, dunk on people drive baseline.
Embarrassed people late.
I've seen I mean, the Knicks.
But, you know, I just see I've not seen from consistently where it's like, Okay, he moved the next step.
Now his idiotic itself actually resigned with the Wizards.
But, you know, we'll see if you get the trade, man, I think that be.
I think I'd be fairly excellent, man.
E think it would work.
It would work well, but I don't know.
Where did you read that trade from? This was just rumor stuff is on this room.
Uh, let me find it.
I think it might be a article.
So, Mark, just just opinion article.
You just chill out market.
Yeah, it's just it's just a mark because Because he knows the next one is gonna be about Yeah.
Let's get to God.
Please, let's get on this because you already know KP ain't gonna be nowhere near Ghana's level high mark.
How do you feel about Yanis possibly coming to the marriage? So that means obviously I don't think is gonna work because you, honestly, to be able to shoot on.
He's a ball in his hands, a lot, but they want the ball.
Lucas hands a lot.
But if he comes, then that means that KP is on the back burner.
That means it's finito that euro dream the little, uh, national whiskey dream That's done.
So KPs so far on the back burner e I don't even know how how would work.
I mean, I I mean, I guess it could work.
You're gonna put KPs center the honest at the four.
Uh, I mean, I don't even know how it would work if you have both of them.
Because KP I still don't believe KP right now.
It could be just be a straight up, full time center like that, E I mean, he could stretch the floor and pull some centers, pull the opposing center out of the paint, the defense of size, where I'd be worried about it.
Um, e don't know.
I mean, I don't think on his own.
I mean, Yana said he He said he wants to retire in Milwaukee.
Thing he just the friend.
Everybody on Facebook or Instagram or something like that.
Oh, did he? I don't know.
I didn't mean he defended everybody.
Then he like the guy's friend every every Milwaukee bucks player on Instagram or something like that.
You know, people, everything was like passive aggressive.
You can't They don't They don't say, All right, But I'm not your friend on Facebook anymore.
I mean, you know now, now that the n b a season is over Oh, yeah, you know it, Z It's a weird time, right? It's a weird time.
You got the draft coming up next month, about 30 days from now.
You got the draft coming up, and then I'm assuming free agency is gonna be right after the draft.
But who knows? All right.
And then they talk about the season.
Could you know, the earliest that it would start is somewhere around Christmas, right? So Adam Silver, he does an interview somewhere.
He said the earliest that it could start is after Christmas.
He said, but most likely you're looking at some time into January, right around Martin Luther King date.
So I mean, even then, it's still a short turnaround, right? I mean, I mean usually ends in June, and they picked back up and September, the end of September.
So that's what July August September.
That's three months.
Um so I guess you know, it's about the same October, October, November, December.
So I guess you know, if they pick back up in December to start training camp and then start playing sometime in January.
Yeah, somebody. Yeah.
Somebody said I started.
We have to see, man and then also got issues with the GP possibly possibly being canceled.
Um, there's news about that.
So things things in disarray and the MBA, they have to find a way Thio spruce up ratings because ratings is the lowest rate of finals they they've had in years.
So, um, ways to spruce it up now, we talked about this before in, um and Andy and go check out Indiana SportsCastr way.
Talk about ways to spruce it up.
Obviously flipping the drafting mechanisms where basically, the you get rewarded with If you come here ninth like ninth and down, like there's, like, a cascading system where you know, ninth and 10th or whatever.
Basically, you get better odds, which incentivizes teams, even if you're not going to the playoffs to do better.
So you have more compelling basketball.
Azad and I think some of you also talk about this as well.
But this will be I'll be a chat for another.
Some got to get out of here.
So I popped up and, you know, you know, I wonder how much off the ratings and and get out here in a second.
But I wonder how much of it was due to just the time of the year that they were playing in the bubble.
Right, Because you have baseball, you know, you've got the world.
Siri's you've got football starting up, and then you got, you know, all these freaking, you know, new shows that come on TV and all this kind of stuff.
Um, you know, I think all of that probably has, um, can, you know, plays a part e.
I mean, um, so you know it up for the past few years, so they mean it's true.
You know, again, I think that when you take out some of the aggression in the game, you know, a lot of whistles, a lot off artificial stars that are there for you have to build the points of regular season.
And you see him in the postseason.
They look fairly limp.
You know, you take out the spirit of the game of basketball to try to spend to a lot of people, you're gonna lose co audience members, and then you're gonna lose the people who no longer what the core audience members made hot.
Now it's not as hot, and in those kind of, you know, I'm gonna say fair with them.
But you call them fair with pop, you know, kind of like, you know, wishy washy fans were just there on instagram and just, you know, wanna put means and comment on Oh, yeah, LeBron jeans, You know, calves offensively Say, you know, when you when things aren't hot within the core is just like all right, they move away.
So wait to bring back that spirit, man.
Yeah, I might have to go back to the nineties and eighties where people were, you know, jackknife power, bombing the dude.
And then, you know, we got, like, a regular foul.
But, you know, Hey, let these guys play, man.
If there's a guy who could upset a LeBron James, you know, or a team that could do that, you know, stop calling these wishy washy fouls.
Let these teams play, you know? I mean, look at the team.
Like the Nuggets, I'm for sure.
Believe that the Nuggets got deep into the They got to the finals.
Rains may have been better now, obviously you say the Nuggets.
But you got a guy in Jamal Murray, and Yolk is too young Guys versus a team like the Miami Heat would have been a lot more even.
But I had a lot closer games without a lot more back and forth.
And obviously, you see, you know a guy in Jamal Murray who might be that next kind of scoring maestro him and Yorkers make a good combination.
So you know, it is what it is.
But I was gonna have a lot of this plate, man.
Oh, yeah, Young Virginia.
That's what I call me. That's That's my guy.
Young Virginia man.
That's he's a son of mine, man.
Jamal Murray is part of since Tyler Herro gotta work his way up, but Tyler Herro next year.
If I like All star break tally heroes up their hero, be bawling, man.
Hey, does he? But he says he's young.
