First of all, it's freezes fault.
He puts thes guns and put it back and require, bro.
They argue I salute to those guys They confined, they could grow state New York.
They could argue about the most Monday.
My **** Nick top.
Like it'll be going.
I will do I go to sleep, be one e work about 78 They're still arguing.
So those guys, those guys are psychotic about the Knicks, man.
So those are my shooters.
They are shooter right there, bro.
Those are my e Like, if if somebody is like clapping Uncle Free Z, I'm like, bringing all of these twitter with me because I know they crap regardless.
They don't need, They don't need They don't need a topic.
Just like happened A That's much love this.
So thank you, members that za freeze these guys and I ain't trying to still nobody, nothing like that.
But I didn't fight freezing, you know, freezing.
No, You know, it's never like that dog, man.
We're like, we're like the Wu Tang Clan.
You like you're the booth people.
Know what? That's what makes you go to go face killer.
That's what makes you It's like it's like, yeah, I was gonna be like, Listen, you have three answers and if you choose the wrong one, the Oh, no.
Funny enough, you got into an argument about what you guys are talking about going back to you guys A.
And I said What? I don't wanna give any draft tabling a right because they look, he's we want a great place to watch.
He's a great physical talent.
Give us westward and he's back to space right here.
Like oh, well, he's official for the old thing about this, right? We haven't die.
What is that? I just at one point average eight assistant game.
That doesn't mean that he's a good facility.
A assist by and you get a lot of fast breaks.
E obviously one year like I don't see what we can.
Still, but he ranked fairly high appearance A you talk about our again.
Oh, he's a guy that plays a you can also culture tend to put more right.
You don't have to give a s.
Oh, yes, you do.
If you wanna play.
If you wanna play with pace and be successful at a high level.
Obviously, the talent has to be there e percent.
But when I look at Russell Westbrook again, I think he's one of the most one of more.
Not to dis, um, one of more unintelligent place.
Decision making spotty.
And you know what I'm talking about him scoring again.
Go back to his Laker.
Siri's way up in the Lakers Rockets.
How many times that he did They switch onto a d And for a guy who's so fishing from the two point line like people to the chat was saying he literally just kept a little something a ghost.
You go around 80 to try to sleep, to sleep, get around the basket, jump up.
But despite the fact that he was getting a space to shoot because they didn't wanna they basically he was like, All right, I'm gonna let you shoot.
But if you get anywhere near the rim, I'm a block the shot.
So I'm gonna play you back.
I'm giving space to shoot on Russell.
Westbrook didn't pick up.
My brother will pick that up easily. Drive.
You will pick that up easily.
Steph Curry will pick that up easily.
in terms of cerebral intelligence.
When we talk about men, guys team on the team better.
This one rest of Westbrook does drive, drive, drive into the heart of paint, which is not necessary back then, usually athleticism.
And just how important.
Or if you have a guy, Steven Adams finish, he goes to the AL you right now.
To me, that is one way to make your teammates better.
But it's also a very limited way of doing so is that he's played with uh huh past.
There have been a few guys who've gone, but they look like Oh, crap, What the hell? All the people.
Why am I missed this? E What? Finally, Yeah, there's another guy, Miss.
Why must I always had a third guy on my head when I mentioned the guys that once they kind of left the whole Westbrook thing, they kind of get better.
There's a guy that built up the status of the whole triple doubles, and this is people said all those type of those who look like this when LeBron James scored.
We're not just saying I've been doing that right, but the fact that the simple fact that LeBron James slightly yes, he has a lot of good players on his team.
You still get triple doubles in the playoffs.
Westbrook comes to the playoffs.
Those shovel doubles are in the regular season.
He gets to the playoffs.
He can't win, get past the first round without Katie.
So again, what are we looking for? When we look at this young mixed team? Are we looking to basically skip a whole bunch of stuff and say, Wait, we know what he's gonna do? We have best might be a 45 46 17 and maybe get around the playoffs and then have to redo everything over and get so much draft capital everyday.
We have to kind of restart once he gets older, gets injury prone or whatever.
Or are we looking to say, Hey, look, we're gonna wipe the slate clean when we get the proper the around that makes this, uh, multiple facets about game better or our team better, you know? I mean, I'd rather go with that versus going for Diamonds Western who, let's be honest.
Outside of two weeks with the Houston Rockets, he is a inefficient but fun.
And he's like a somebody says particles.
Juice says he's like a He's like Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, right? Very fun to watch.
Very little something very little substance.
Okay, let me add it.
So yes, like that.
Everything you just said is absolutely true.
I can't deny none of that.
It's just that the problem is that everyone keeps on like, remember, I say this on Sim show all the time.
You got seven draft picks coming.
At some point in time, we got to start consolidating these things and getting actual talent.
The one thing that we have that's a problem with all the guys we drafted.
It has been not good enough.
Constantly is not gonna like.
I love Frankie Latino, but he's not good enough.
I love Dennis Smith, but he's not good enough.
I want to give him a chance.
And Toby Family.
I want to give him a chance, just like I gave frankly after Frank second year.
We should be clowning him just as much as we clown Kevin Knox, but Kevin Knox is coming up on this in the third year Should we not give everyone a chance? Yes, but the problem is, is that Frank after next year needs, uh, to be resigned.
That's gonna be $10 million contract.
Did you say Frank? You say? Frankly, Latina needs to be re signed.
Its contract is up, so he's gonna be resigning from eso.
Resigns indicates that you mean resigned by the next.
Yeah, we owe decision on okay.
You said re sign, though.
That means you're talking about the next resigning him.
So But you're right.
But see, this is this is the way I look at it.
I like the long term go stuff, right? So, you know, if you have you now, this is a craps.
You do You go after you consolidate your picture.
Say, Hey, we have to spend his pick somehow on a guy like Russell Westbrook might be available.
Or do you say, hey, next year, we have our eyes on a certain player, Right? K Cunningham.
If we don't get that pick that gets us in the cake coming in space because somebody your boys point this out, there's actually next year is actually not a strong point guard back, Right? Right.
so okay, Coming.
Him especially, shows out another policy is gonna play out if he shows out.
Is that the time you used to conserve it and move up to give to a team that has a point guard and that doesn't get coming here? Now you have a kid for the future, because look, a guy like, look, people trying t o problem.
Rent has had the Grizzlies as a player.
They were dangerous.
I mean, I know they lost that one game, whatever with the Blazers, but that's a team that they they woke up a franchise.
I mean, he woke up a franchise and and then they had Jim Jackson here.
But I know Jim Jack has been hurt, whatever.
But so they woke him.
They you could get a catalyst guard like that.
Obviously, a lot of years that, you know, you could sign a lot of stuff.
There's going at the guy.
Westbrook who? Yes, it's nice toe.
But he's also about 30 right? You start again. His nickname Injuries.
God forbid Russell West forgets a Achilles injury.
Now you have a guy who is predicated his old game off athleticism and athleticism is going.
He's never been a high thinking on the ball, right.
He's never been a good street shot, 25% from last year.
Within the within the two, I think he was above average in terms of shots.
Some shots, uh, what's in, but still out of the three years he's been the league outside three years and he's always shot.
Total field goal percent has been lower than league average.
Not just I think, that the average might include everybody else's.
It's tough, but a guy who's supposed to be a superstar to me when you're superstar proficient, which means volume and efficiency.
I mean Curry is proficient.
He can shoot a lot of threes and shoot about 40%.
What spring has never been pro fish.
He's never been efficient, you know.
I mean, so I just when you look at him, I always try to look at how is he gonna make the guys that got better? I greet you, make that we don't have a lot of talent, but if a guy like R.
Barrett, right, and RJ, that may never be a superstar, but I think RJ is a culture change, right? I think he's one of those guys who build around Bill built properly around them.
He's one of those guys that people will listen to.
You may not be the most flashes, whatever, but I could see R.
Barrett one day averaging 18 19 points a game, six rebounds, three assists.
You know you could see him, you know, I mean, I want to say the fishies yourself, but that's how I'm gonna build around.
What does that? That's why I always preached.
I know, President, tell me, always preach about getting a guy like vassal, a guy who complements RJ.
Look at the heat.
You have a bunch of guys, you know, I mean, a lot of guys to shoot threes, but Butler is like the catalyst, and they kind of all complementing each other in various ways.
That's how you get it.
And they got to the finals essentially lost to the Lakers.
But I think that's the proper way.
That makes me to build up if we could get if you get a Booker trying to get a book, but if you get that type of young star and you're gonna put your piece together, get him and he fits your team or he fits your philosophy.
And he's not gonna be disruptive.
No, I mean what much of Western just doesn't look every autumn you hold on. Wait.
Freeze! Sitting down Devin Booker is is very overrated.
Yo, eso freeze! But boy from Twitter, man, invite your voice from Twitter, man Voice from Twitter here, man.
Let me Oh, alright.
Bring your goons in here, man.
Bring with back with brick Wall All these ghouls, man, I don't like that, bro.
Okay, so So what does Devin Booker do that makes you think that he is in the lead? Offensive talent? You could play well off the ball.
You did this year.
Exactly from the field, E.
I believe his use of tear down that you think about this freezing.
I'm giving you the ball less And you became more efficient, right? Mhm.
And last year, way What style? Of course you could play on the ball.
Not the last he was way played like harden this year off the ball.
Okay, freeze! And I want to own a frame something right? Oh, at the end of the last season, Freezing said.
To me and Sam, it was me freezing.
And so on the chat and the other one off stuff free Z said, Don Chick is overrated.
You remember that freezing E? I was in my face.
Before this season, I was saying the same thing to even noticed.
He's saying something to me.
Oh, I will see this one about this thing of darkness, right? One.
They try to purpose him.
As you know, He's like this thing we've never seen before.
He's basically European.
Hardy, right? Doesn't shoot pretty well, defendable that he's going, he's been developed.
All I was saying was that when I said he was overrated with how everybody was hyping him up, I'm saying, Okay, he's the guys.
He literally has the ball.
I think it's usually is usually it's high.
The odds of all that stands ah lot.
He's playing a big 676 67.
He was a lot of smaller guards, so you can abuse a lot of guards in the post great talent, but when you give a guy and it is good on him, right? Same thing. Harden.
I was saying hard in the year, not this year before.
It's just It was like 35 or 7%.
It's all right if you give the ball with that much, obviously, the average 30 something, Uh, you some points when you give these guys who really go offensive, players the ball a lot and you basically make it so that they she was like Okay, well, and they played only one way.
He's not gonna get off the ball.
It is like a you know what I mean.
So I would say that in the playoffs if he doesn't have the playoffs again, But he didn't like this, so you know, he did an opponent.
That's why I'm saying like I can't I can't say he's overrated anymore.
I mean, people try to say he's a great to stop that.
You know, people saying, Oh, I'm like Yo, bro, that's James Harden like he's not.
He's not anything different from what we're seeing.
And even Mark Cuban mark, people trying to fashion like, Oh, I'm gonna recreate the whiskey and ask. I'm like dogs.
I used to watch the marriage hard body in the earth.
There you lose first mousing around.
Maybe because it couldn't defend.
That's not a that is not a great team.
Don't people try to make it seem like they almost got no, They did not always get the funds.
Yeah, it's almost like the guys in the whiskey left and they had a Josh Howard Nowitzki.
Sorry, now would be a national.
You have Nowitzki, Joshua not blame here.
Randi aware that guy's gonna no design Stevenson.
While I'm speaking thing and the social area where they got and what did Josh Howard provides Josh how only I was, like 11 points.
You know, there is a great defender long, great defender e.
So it's like people still talk about because he's like, all right, like people who do you want those guys to those? I'm not issuing them, but they're like, Oh, that he's a superstar.
Guys, Do you know what a superstar is? Let's be.
Do we all know what a super star is in the n b A.
Like, let's not sit here just a start.
Oh, who? What's your definition of a Michael Jordan is a eso Luca is a superstar also then no e think he's pretty close.
You gotta understand the way I view Luca is someone that could command a double team, make the right play out the double team to carry this team 30 e o.
Because you gotta you gotta understand, is like for Zynga's got hurt.
Look at how they push the clippers.
The Clippers gonna lost to the Dallas If Porzingis was healthy like they they were timeto folks are and his co star just fizzled.
And I think that's also I think, a ps one overrated.
But when we look at KP, I agree is overrated.
Yeah, he's overrated.
But, uh, you could also argue that clippers scene was still constructed.
Seen this the quicker CQ We win.
If Colliders videos and Paul George goes off, your portal is having a bad game.
Even if quite a good game, they're not gonna win.
They don't have.
How many? How many looks can the Clippers give you outside of four? Just twilight Schmidt is a nice piece, but they don't teaching him like that.
Uh, Montrezl Harrell good playing.
He's not gonna take over again.
He's gonna ban at a bio.
Yeah, he's They're not He's not gonna catch like like this the Nuggets, you know? I mean, I literally watched that team.
If you different looks the only their role players.
I think that a better job of the Lakers almost sap and Jamie Grant and a lot of women because the Lakers and this is a big time shot, right? There were games where Murray, when the games that went murder went down outside that last game.
I mean, uh, dockets went on games were dark.
Doctors was pretty safe there.
Things that you know, doctors give you 25 minutes. Bernie gave you 51.
So the Clippers did not have a lot of looks and they could have been beaten by the marriage.
And I think the max went on to play the Nuggets.
They would have got Molly walk like they would have got embarrassed.
So maybe that was better for Lucas image where it's like, man, uh, Branson Luca had a bad ankle, remember? I watched that e three had a bad ankle.
So Luca is a soldier.
I'm not taking that away from them.
And I'm not gonna give the overweight attacking because I'm not gonna listen.
Toe idiotic idiots like Max Kellerman.
All these idiotic who? Good.
He was like, uh, tps a superstar at the very least, right? If Rupert got that team to the to the Western Conference finals, then you could say, All right, he's itching there because who did not have the second guy? I really care what you have, said Curry and Tim Hardaway.
Uh, that's that's not a squad e effect that he didn't have that team to that a d it is a superstar.
People without LeBron James carry team like that.
80 is and I don't care what no one says that people No, no, no.
I've watched every Laker game in the playoffs ifthis playoffs a away from a d.
When 80 was not going off.
They're not winning.
Go back and watch Game four or five or whatever.
You know what? He won? LeBron James had a triple double, 20 some points, almost double 81 69 15 points and they lost like 80 is a super soft.
Why Leonard? So that that that that Raptors team last year was shell shocked.
Go listen, toe What's his boys and DEMAR DeRozan, said LeBron James.
What about place? Forgotten playing? LeBron James called it out, called out Play they When you talk about you know what they do.
The baby thing in basketball.
That's basically rappers who I let it went over there and make the world leaders not understanding.
So the Warriors hurt.
Who were that Toronto team dominant.
They had given faster show. That's superstar.
Okay, E, I'm not gonna sit here and say he is LeBron right now.
I'm just saying that when freeze, he said he was overrated for him to be in his rookie year, coming off the rookie and tell me that Hey, freezing, you are significantly.
There's no freaking where you could look at Luca Don tricks that first year and say he was overrated.
Nothing about what? Upset something.
What did please write, man? So So the thing is, the thing is, is when we call players superstar, we have to understand who else is in that superstar category, right? So for us to call a rookie Luca, Don check a superstar and category LeBron James, we have to kind of really, We have to realize that back in and temper expectations we have to say, Does Luca has the potential to be in that category in 234 years? Yes.
Is he in that category for you right now? No, I would I would say no.
Just just had to break a little bit.
You know what I'm saying? It's the same thing with Trey Young.
Can Trae young b and Steph Curry category eventually? Yes.
Just calm down and just just give you a man some time to develop.
Way said Devin Booker is like a easy bucket.
Good, blah, blah, blah.
We sell the stuff about Devin Booker.
Devin is an average NBA, um, eyes average nbn when it comes to stats, but he gets a lot of opportunities.
Devin Booker for his career is a Yeah, this is 17 10 4 game, right.
We have to look at this thing.
We can't just say Devin Booker is 50 40 90 and because you know that's not who he is.
Quick question frizzy e Got to get the rest too, because you don't let me get a chance.
You can rest key there.
I'm just gonna do.
Is that you? Do you rather Mikhail Bridges, shoot five shots per game and and take away five from from Devin Booker? Or do you want Devin Booker taking those five shots? I'm asking you.
Who the hell is Mikhail Bridges? You talk about noodles, talk about to do from Villanova.
Do you called rules? They want him noodles coming at Villanova.
You know why? Because he was a grown ass man with a wimpy body.
That's what they call him A right and a n b a in the n b A.
He's a decent, eh, NBA player.
Right? But when you put when you put Devin Booker besides another start, do you think he's gonna take 17 shots a game? Is he gonna be better or just as good as another star with average real numbers? You think? Yeah.
Yeah, a What you needed was a proper system and literally a complementary player.
Ricky Rubio is not a world beater.
What? Ricky Rubio is a guy who can handle the ball and get it out to the right man.
Look what happened this year.
Amani Williams offense.
They called the 0.
5 seconds or less offense, obviously, player words from the Antonio.
But literally it was just literally a change in the game and literally in the bubble.
The sons were looking like, Yo, what? It wasn't.
Oh, they went on a six or seven game money.
Whatever it was like, Who the hell is this team? This is different, obviously.
Is the bubble that stuff? But again? Macau Bridges, Macau Bridge When he got drafted by the traded to the Sun, whatever draft, did he look like a guy? Then he looked kind of like in his first few.
Like he's looking like he's about to in that draft, a draft bust, a road e remember from Macau Bridge that I wanted to college for the Knicks? Now he's he dropped in the draft, obviously remember one of them from Villanova, and I say he's gonna be a world I think is always gonna be a three D player.
But his stats improved and that that wasn't just because of all its for his own about.
I think that was because of how money Williams during the team, obviously got guys and again you got guys like he's been.
That team was on that team last year. Booker.
They want world leaders that they were looking much improved against.
You don't have to put place off defensively.
Look, book is not you know it is what it is, right? But if you're efficiencies, go up and the ball is taking out of your hand.
That means that you're off ball, right? You're all bull****.
Whatever they be is improving your being more efficient.
Somehow with the ball less in your hand, How can I take that away from you? A lot of guys leave right to the way the ball away from Westbrook.
This that's a different 5% from three.
I know from the half court, whatever, but you have to have a lot of a lot of.
You have to have some place from one to the half versus where the perimeter was easier.
We could flares, screen staggers for that stuff to get open on the perimeter, right, but forgot.
Like Booker, how can you say that he's overrated like dogs? Just it's always with the ball less in his hand and always been taught us on.
Life in MBA is to have the ball here now when they had that guy.
Uh, the something, Whatever that guy's And the one with the really long I'm trying issue, but really European or whatever was e coast of funds or what do you think, E Thank you.
E Think those were his.
I think he came from stocks Is a team, right? Terry, stop fasting right lately.
And they were running a lot of four emotions or stuff, uh, with sons.
And it wasn't working.
Uh, so again, you can't.
That's why I get a lot of play the money room.
Instead, we look at some players, as Booker is actually the opposite of the MBA is going right where coaching is enhancing his game and he's taken to it, right? Look how many players in the league.
They wanna hire puppet coaches, right? Like, let's be honest, Tyrone, who should not have another job in the NBA.
What's this guy's name? Steve Nash is going to cost us to headaches.
You know that counts argument.
So you're making my dirty step.
What's the very house argument that the Stackhouse argument for Aaron Smith? That's what you're thinking right now.
That coaching improved Devin Booker.
He said that right? Hey said Putting improvement, yes.
What does that have to do with Aaron Naysmith? It means it means that our shooters that saying that Devin Booker mode Like Aaron D.
Smith Devin Book of those types.
If you change the If you have a coach to buy into what their skills are and and allow them to develop and enhance what they could do, then these guys can actually improve.
You're talking toe my point because they are faster shows. Mawr.
He has a more veteran, a large array of skills that Naysmith Ba*****t is a sharpshooting mother F 51% from three.
I'll grow, I give you the credit.
All the world has amazing high usage rate, so he's a bigger part of Bondable offense. Ambassador.
Right? That's has shown that he kept at times if he wants to, can.
He has now saying it's a strong postgame, but he has aspects that said, Okay, you can develop a postgame right? Sometimes when he sets himself in the mid range, the way he dribbles, takes to stop uses back to get leverage on the guy, and then she's the ball to the train turns more into the paint to shoot those aspects of the post game for work with.
You can shoot off the ball. He could shoot off the dribble.
You know, I'm saying your boy May Smith is a is he is Damon Jones.
Any house come on screen all day.
But other than that, a basket very a e o Rick trip was in here, Rick.
Where you at? This boy just said Naysmith is Booker Because I don't work for love are loath, Leo, except the smooth the oh, look at Look at the ages where they all look at that Devin Booth.
Liberal tyranny Smith's production at age 20 Season here tomorrow on a hold of things.
What? You're doing this when you're complaining, right? Two people that have the same level of production.
But how they get that production can be worlds away.
Devin Booker can take this man off the dribble.
No, that's the false narrative that your present present a e 39 4.
E wish they had a good like that.
You know what happens when a good shooter, right? You know what happens, right? People over compensate they overrun into you.
Get like that, you're gonna get a lot of files.
That guy's a bipartisan white guy like party gets those files, right? Why do you think a guy like you know a great hours in the game? Why do you get? Because when they get so quick around the screen, you overcompensate, lose leverage and you jump into them? No, A basket.
That's the reason why I was trying to beat you on the on the vassal argument.
Because NIH Smith legit puts the floor ball on the floor and get to the basket, people.
A poor ******* has a four, uh, free throw drawing, right, Like 20%.
It is not good, but also, But also, I'm telling you, I say no one is watching, right? But one of the things that point out is that he was not utilized in that offense toe a high level.
But it was letting Hamilton his reason for doing that.
What they want to feature Patrick rooms for doing that.
This do vassal was not featured in that offense.
They smith one because we don't have handles, dog, if you can you have to.
You have to have handles to get to the basket.
Okay, let's see.
Oh, drive to the basket.
So they set free throw percentage.
Freak drug percent.
Vasquez was Yes.
22% I believe quickly was freaking.
The manual quickly was 43%.
I wish there's a shot chart to show me where these guys are getting file, because that would be Oh, that will be beautiful to see that.
What is? I'm just gonna go on that.
That's all sports records for the constantly, right? Obviously, 1.
2% People are 50% of the two point, so I should probably lay up Know? How do you say that, man E.
I'm talking about what Rick said his percent would have gone down the game.
That was called.
He was roasting article Caro, who all claim to be a shutdown.
A shutdown defendant.
Had 18 points against Africa Caro before he got injured.
And this we're gonna put up 35 against Auburn E with this game.
Locke e you guys got the best site.
E love this scythe.
He had his most here. Yeah.
You see that 11 free throws attempts against your city? Wilmington? Is that a great team? No. They trash.
Free throws in touch against Buffalo.
Is that a good team? That Let's go down where? He had six or 10 3 games.
Richmond? No, Loyola.
No Davidson, No.
Five Freedoms attempts Tulsa.
Uh, Texas eight in Corpus Christi.
Oh, he had three attempts.
Austin pay how you pronounce it.
South Carolina, South Carolina State.
Three attempts, sm new three attempts against Auburn.
He had three intense Dude, he got hurt in the over in game.
I'm telling you that.
Okay, but yeah, 18 points in that game.
So a lot of Hey, hey, hey.
A lot of those funds wanna go for him going to the basket.
It was shooting them shots like, yeah, 18 points. Right.
He shot 4 to 6 from three point line.
That's what did you say? 446 but a degrees.
But here's the Here's the issue.
Seven attempts the whole night right.
So it's only three other temporary shot outside the three point line.
A 18 points on 50% from from the floor.
A great, great shooting.
A great shooter, but a 15 points is bad.
A twisters. Yeah.
Yeah, he stopped. Hey, Threes.
Right? So you shot six threes.
Made four of them, right? That means Zoulis talking about the trees and isolation booth in conference play way that drives to the basket.
Right, But the stats here and get a team, I don't know the right time, but I was working on this.
This awful list of things I just mentioned.
All that is the best, right? 18 points again.
Wait four for six from three.
I would take that any day, right? But he only shot.
He only made seven shots that whole game.
That means three of them made shots, came from lamps, whatever.
And he only had three free throw attempts.
So he's not this guy that's driving to the basket like that.
This guy was drawing these files against at least top level competition.
When you watch his films, he doesn't have this array of skills to get the basketball Devin vassals also limited going to the basket basket as well.
But at least in terms of what you can do, I think it's better than a Smith who is a dead. I pure shooter.
But that's really mostly what he is.
Uh, yeah, The other thing is that he was talking about drafting at at eight.
I believe that you could trade up and get get your guy Naysmith or just wait at 27 get next way 27 just for the record, Crazy.
I just put it out in the chat that if anybody catches a case, I'm making sure that you are their lawyer.
Okay, I'm making sure they get a second job.
It'll you something? Yeah, a power point handle.
His head isn't good and he needs to tell you enough.
Exactly. Great for himself.
A appreciate information in his eyes Will handle is not very good.
His lack of verse hurts him, but he's also not very creative with this handle going downhill and more of a straight line driver does not just long fly, meaning he's not gonna cross over.
He's not gonna be a change of pace.
He is one way and one way only he may stop if you don't got it.
But, hey, he's not gonna euro step you.
He's not gonna do any of that location on him.
It's just it is what it is.
It is from is Well, what? What? I'm what I'm telling you.
All is what I'm trying to tell you all is this Wait.
So Devin Booker, coming out of Kentucky, had similar knocks on him, right? They even call Devon book a soft.
They even called David book a soft, you know, coming out of Kentucky, right? And you also heard the thing up from, um and I'll draw another guy that that was a great shooter like that in college dude named Ray Allen.
Right There was like, he's not shifting.
A lot of people wanted a dude named Kerry Kittles over Ray Allen.
They were like, at least Kerry Kittles could get to the basket and more of a all around player.
And And, to be honest with you, that's how Terry, that's who.
Um, Therese Halliburton reminds me of Kerry Kittles type player.
Why would you? Why would you pass on a cat like Aaron E.
Smith? who is a certified buck.
Get in a problem solver for a problem that that you had for, like, 10 years for a dude who shot a suspect.
What? Devin vassal sheet tape.
It looks like a ship.
No, no, no, that zawl.
Someone's doing that draft.
Someone do that? So? So he calls on the draft.
I've watched them in baseball.
He shot like that all throughout college.
I thought of something different.
I'm like where and literally if you look at the YouTube comments are the Twitter comments.
Other people like he's been sure like that all season.
Where is the difference? Someone is doing that purposely, so he falls out in the draft.
So when he seems on the friends in the playoffs, maybe like a blazer or something that you used the three and the guy who space the floor and hitting the high court, they do not purpose that.
Trust me when you start like that, I'm looking at I'm like, Where is the chance for what he did in college? Go again.
Go to the Virginia game shot 27 points, kill from three.
I hit like seven or 83 Whatever Waas he shot like that all the time.
Dribble shot like that off the set.
Shot like that, a point they are coming out of UConn was way more than this.
A shooter everybody forgets.
Really. When he was on the bucks, he was a beast.
Could drive to the basket.
How little dribble wasn't the greatest, but he was all around.
Now, obviously, once he started get older after, like, the last few years with Seattle.
Uh, right take over that he was a purely that I shoot it but came out of college.
I was the truth on.
And so, to the right Alan argument I'll give you credit for is Ray.
Allen was also had a higher assist rate.
I think Ray Allen was probably for four assists a game.
And me, Smith is that, like that one? Yeah, he's not.
He's not a good pass again.
I'm not taking anything away from him, but, you know, God makes me.
I can't draft at eight.
You got you got You drive with that? If you're like so I don't know how you do it.
This extreme example Say you're the warriors and somebody got the eighth pick and you literally just wants the championship and everybody's come back.
Everybody's young enough and you just need a deadeye shooter.
You're gonna build around even that.
It's hard to really justify again a guy who's I think will be a great role player and even the shot for him.
It's not the not to say it's a dead slow release.
It is not the quickest release.
It's like, Yeah, it's like a weird It loads up a little bit, right? A guy like you have to make sure you get Steve Novak space and yeah, it's like, Yeah, it's like like Ray Allen obviously shot the figures like a foot beautiful.
And I mean, you gotta make sure you get that kid opening space.
You make sure his defender ain't Nayman because he's not.
He doesn't jump that high, you know, I mean again, we gotta be careful with these guys who come from college.
We put these great stacks on teams that we don't have that much time.
He's not playing against great teams. Like literally.
The best team I mentioned on here was was Auburn.
I like, Come on dogs get out? No.
Anyway, anyway, back toe Russell Westbrook.
What? You wanted to touch on that? Because e get it? Because I think that was the one who like Westbrook.
I don't know what things they don't like.
But what happened to me for the Knicks lead man, that is not the player right now.
Especially gonna get that obviously became we're gonna have a pieces of, uh, you obviously take acquiring, Uh, it is Remove Nemo, South Carolina.
Um uh oh, right there.
Think of Westbrook, Man, guy I really wanted before you got hurt was logic, but it's gonna be tough to try toe bring out like a plant or what plants, fasciitis, whatever.
He has a tornado like I mean, it's it's hard to I love driving game.
This guy, I guess he's older.
Give us a stopgap.
You know what I mean? Um but, you know, at this age and this injury is just gonna be tough.
Man, I think we need you.
Don't draft killing haze or, you know, somehow move up for Lemelle a ball you need.
And even with those two guys, you still need.
I would love to have it a secret situation.
You have a Westbrook, right? You got to have a is a top of the garden sense of thinking facilitation.
Get your other guard.
The guard of the future, up to par and rather quickly, right? SDA by himself is not doing that well, because I have a play.
What? I just it is all this is what's the West is what it is, but yeah, And then, like, we are in such a precarious position Because if you don't get them now, if you go even came cake cutting it might be more of a two guard in the n B A right with 6667 astral.
Yeah, Yeah, I say, yeah.
Rogic and his I would love a driving.
I'm just scared about that injury.
But I would say that if the heat go after a guy like you, honest, they have any They might get away because of the honest takes more of the on ball duties and that knows more.
The jury bowlers more.
Jimmy Butler is more of a off the lead guard s so you could do right there's like a bigger guard Dragic might fall off.
He might behave. Give him a good payday.
Two years, you know, it will be a good amount of money.
But you also we're gonna pay.
What's brother, right? What's book is the easy answer to everything in 38 million Z two million.
So what I think this year 44.
Next year on Ben 46 in the last year.
Oh, yeah, I would like a free make the argument that for Westbrook.
What do you like, Westbrook for the next Nick G? I appreciate you giving.
I appreciate you told me the Eliot.
You Gigi, is the perfect point guard.
He know about the young, this thing home.
I'm breaking baseline.
I don't cut baseline and he come around the screen.
He's just throwing lobs.
I mean, I appreciate you.
Oh, all right, so So here's So here's the Westbrook argument.
So who is the head coach of the next right? Tom Thibodeau. Yeah.
So Tom Thibodeau turned Ah 63 uber athletic point guard into the league MVP.
Did he not do that? He did that right? Okay.
So he did that once.
So you take a guy that's already been league MVP.
Bring them to a team that needs shot creasing, right? So while his negative while he's down is one negative is three point shooting is positive.
Is shot creation what Russell Westbrook does? It turns the whole bunch of dudes that you've never heard off, or some dudes that that air drafted in the late rounds turns them into easy bucket.
Get us because defense is focused on Russell Westbrook because of his ability to get to the basket, his ability to threaten the middle of your defense.
So what happens is now you have ah, dude like, say, a Mitchell Robinson, Julius Randle and R. J. Barrett.
People that struggle to get shots on their own and clambered up offenses jammed up offenses.
You bring a guy that's a walking double, Double a walking.
Ah, walking triple double.
You bring a walking triple double into your building.
Now you not only do you get and if you and and buy some weird twist of fate, we trade for Brody, not Russell Westbrook.
If we **** around and get Brody in the Garden getting triple doubles against Brooklyn against Philadelphia now you're talking about instantly.
If using your fan base with automatically getting your team into the playoffs, right.
Russell Westbrook and Tom Thibodeau automatically get your teams to 45 wins regardless, what kind of deadbeat you have on your roster? I we'll call this.
Triple doubles those manufactured triple doubles.
Get that, the FBI? They're not you.
I'm just saying, that whole triple double click I got so ****ed.
And the funny thing is that you said he's gonna tell your defense is right.
You know what? You can get you through.
The Lakers did right? Plays on defense.
When did you? When did the Lakers do that? What do you like to do that this past playoff? O S o.
You said they do that in the playoffs, right? I'll take the Lakers doing that in the playoffs.
That knew he made it to the finals.
You know what I'm saying? Is that the Oh, no.
But I'm saying that the Lakers showed that you could do it in the playoffs, but they did that in the playoffs, right? You can just replicate that.
Look, if he doesn't have any other guys, he's the main guy.
Was gonna go That play I did open sea, right, Because they don't have a heart.
Is another guy to put off plays on against it? You have guys collapsing and you make sure you could also have that rim protector is gonna block always.
You know, shots e a selling point.
I think he is a good a good point shooter.
Sorry. Um, yeah.
I mean, he's not the smartest.
Okay, right? I've seen Russell Westbrook literally go away from his strength.
Like hit that little kiss off the backboard from the baseline.
He'll hit three of those, and you just stop doing and start chucking threes that don't go in a But I want Chris, Paul and Chris.
Paul has never won me give me p because e saw place where Steven Adams and someone else and another guy, they were literally blocking out each other.
So Russell West, we could get a rebound dogs so he could get the trouble that that's not true.
LeBron James as much.
I'm not the biggest fan of him.
When he gets a triple double, it's okay.
That's a triple double.
His passing is not really he's getting two guys in space.
He's getting guys who come to the link getting the guys with the pick and roll with a d.
Like he did a lot in this playoff.
I'm saying the assists obviously is heavy on ball so you can make a discount that.
But it's still a triple double in the points put up.
But come on, The rest of Western was doing that.
It was That's why I think about this crazy.
Why didn't Russell Westbrook went to every piece of the road? Despite the fact the average tripled over the next year? Because the narrative was weak.
It was like, All right, everybody sees it.
The chip of those about what you lose in the playoffs, right? It's like, Okay.
All right, all right.
Katie left. You have the first year that second year.
Come on, bro. We know what it is about.
We've seen what the game is, though.
Thes trash, triple doubles.
Your team is not getting better.
Get gets the players.
The first round of getting Molly walk.
Molly walked in the first round.
Sweat kill. Destroy.
All right, all right.
So name one guy on that team from Steven Adams.
Eso name one or two guys on the Oklahoma City Thunder team.
Aside from Stephen Animals, Jeremy Grant.
Um Jerry Grant? Yeah, old people had about it. Yeah.
God could see the white guy face.
I just can't remember his name right now.
Uh, what got hurt? E e that Griffin.
Um um, Red****, the Reddit kids.
Um And so in Houston, he played with James Harden.
Right, So So we compare like these these different things, man.
I mean, come on, when you're gonna get you gotta get body credit for when it's for being illegal.
Dp the dude legit one leading qui right? And I told you a legit argument.
Thio turned the athletic point guard into the league in D p p o.
People like to Michel's people.
Like that lady on ESPN who literally did not vote 80 on any of the, uh, be a whatever teams here.
Right? 33 all NBA team.
She did not vote 80 on any of them.
You gotta have foot and apologize for it.
So we're talking about voters who a lot of these voters do not know what basketball is.
Yeah, Nobody would basket.
So I'm not trying to study if I know what you're getting at.
But when it comes to these, these these, uh, r J.
Barrett didn't even make second on rookie team.
Despite all these facts, you rent rent here.
I'm not saying should have made the first There's like, Yeah, I got a bunch of people in freezing they want in life.
You can explain why they do it right? Rachel Nichols is on ESPN.
Stephen Jackson was like, There's a one year where 80 Bradley was like, literally one of the best offenders.
Best bar defenders.
And they put Danny Green in it.
Who's over it as defender at the time, right? And literally he was like, Who else? Going for the stuff you and Richard was like, I don't know.
And she's one of the voters.
These are the people who are voting for these, uh, these and they go off narrative.
They don't put it in with the NDP that year.
But now they But with e o to the 11 come on, like come on.
Dogs like these people, that clouds they This is what I'm sorry.
I'm not gonna die addressed.
I hate this about every sport where allies people who are jealous because they couldn't play lives.
People who, because the athlete is not nice to them.
They want to take this vendetta because, like, oh, I could vote.
I heard Skip Bayliss right, This clown of them, he's a kind of a man.
I don't care what anybody says.
He got a Troy Aikman try to accuse him that he was *******ual.
That's why I got kicked out of basically the whole Dallas writing circle, right? He also tried to say, That's supposed to not be in the Hall of Fame.
His deal with the so called That's even first of all, when it comes to football, I might die aggressive when it comes to football for sport, where basically your body is breaking down every single day, you're not gonna have to hold your kids, and you're not getting the kiss your wife the same.
Once you're in your forties, your so called golden years, right, you put your blood sweat tears and you put up the numbers to get to the O the Hall of Fame.
You have some kind of like stick.
Baylor's, who averaged 1.
4 points a game.
Can't even make a team for his varsity team.
Right? And he's voting or his vote for NFL, right? He's he might be improved.
People saying t o should not get into the Hall of Fame.
Oh, you old eventually going into the Hall of Fame or former players for up to par, who have the mental acuity who still watch the game.
And they're they're enough players there, hundreds of players to do that I don't wanna hear about.
And if not, you freeze.
I'm not talking about you.
Don't want to hear about the end because they give it based off narrative and story, though.
That's why every year is skin.
The old trying to push over LeBron James should be M V P because Kobe died.
This I'm like, What the hell does that have to do with anything about basketball on Kobe Bryant? Kobe Bryant warrior Kobe Bryant? If you ask Kobe Bryant, may he rest in peace If you ask Kobe Bryant right now where you asked Hey, Kobe.
Hey, who do you think should win everybody like? Give me the best player like Well, do you think LeBron and he Probably.
I don't think LeBron best player how goes out? So you don't give a **** about all that? He's a He's a killer. Straight killer.
So I mean, Thio.
Oh, whoa, whoa! Myself, because Westbrook straight killer.
But he's not smart.
Melo is was a killer.
He was selfish with right.
You could be a killer and be play stupid.
Kobe was a killer.
But Kobe between the two championships, very selfish, right? He given set of himself that he could have been a better teammate. Could have been more empathetic.
Could have done a lot more of the things elitist.
Because Kobe comes from the Michael Jordan ever.
Because remember all those guys that coming from fathers who were in the war? I'm talking about that hard, grizzled, negative reinforcement.
Kobe was fun that that he was slowly edging into a new everywhere.
Things were software, right? Yeah, he didn't get it.
He didn't process it.
And he was saying, Hey, I gotta build for myself, and then you gotta have a coach come in so you could be a killer to be stupid.
So? So But But the thing you know I saw I saw what Simmons said to compare the roles.
Toe Westbrook is crazy.
It's not crazy when they're legit.
The same body type, you know, it's the rolls.
His roles in his prime, he rolled on.
His problem was a stone cold killer.
He wanted to be.
That what I'm saying.
And Westbrook, you've never seen Westbrook take a day.
You've never seen Westbrook coming the game, not ready to snatch somebody hard out.
And that's what That's the type I think we need with the Knicks, because one and I'm gonna say has gotten way too soft.
But one looking ahead to K kind of mean that means you skip the whole basketball.
That mean we take this **** for K. Cunningham.
But what we forget, though, is is that we're not guaranteed to get okay, Cunningham, what I'm saying.
I mean, look at this E.
And last year last year, we had the worst record until they got Zion.
But we didn't you know, I'm saying so this thing.
So the wishful thinking of getting K Cunningham is just that which were thinking You get Russell Westbrook right now who's still in his prime for two or three years and he can rub off on your team.
Like, can you imagine what it's like facing R.
Barrett and you have in Russell Westbrook? How is it that Russell Westbrook leaves? Okay, so they bring in a C P.
Do it's gonna be broken down stuff, have a 4% chance again the playoffs.
And they do the same place that Russell Westbrook ****.
And they posed more threat than Russell Westbrook has.
It is non Katie years leading that.
I mean, what's this? We talk about rubbing off again when you watch guys who played? What's your question, right? I didn't see a lot like all the people look like.
Oh, you might not be that type of player, right? He goes in India.
They're like, Oh, no, he is that type of player.
So I'm just wondering when he's not playing Russell Westbrook because Russell Westbrook is a guy who's more by a stats now.
CP three again CP three told Oxford CP three Davis to make other guys better to get the guys easier field goals right? That's gonna make you better with ah guy like Kevin Knox, A guy like Kevin Knox, who needs the ball to be 15.
Let's be honest guy, right? He's on.
The guy's gonna sit there, Andrew.
He's very linear going to the basket because he's not a depth around the rim.
Regards the different moves, right? He goes that little ugly floater, that sharp floater, right? He needs somebody to getting the ball in space.
He needs somebody to get him in a proposition.
Get him with toe.
Call the proper clear out, get him on the proper side where he's going to get those picks.
Uh, way to slide off from from the corner to the wing and get there the top where she could get it.
I mean, that's what CP three is.
Westbrook is not that he's not calling the in the game guys, he's just not that smart of a player.
And that's not that's no distinctive.
Now I agree with you.
I actually agree with you on your Derrick Rose comparison.
Are you looking at the plane styles now? The Bulls.
The Bulls had a lot more talent, right? In terms of that, allow that and they had they had a defense basically comfort Derrick Rose.
Um, I look at the shooting stacks. E.
Remember, I think from Memphis.
He shot you shouldn't queen and that this No, he altogether.
I think it's shooting percentage was like in the thirties, but like it's two halves of a season with Derrick Rose.
Well, I don't think Derrick Rose and Westbrook are comparable because number one Westbrook has a A like there's a point in time when Westbrook gets going and he just becomes a negative on the court.
I never felt that with with Derek Rules, there are times that that when if if you get Russell Westbrook the chance to hit a three and let's he hit two, he'll keep on jacking up threes even after he missed six.
That's a chaotic, selfish, sometimes and just terrible way to play.
I believe that you could put him in the same exact place, and Westbrook could run things just as well as a Z.
Westbrook could do it just as well as their rules at times, but after a while, trick down after missing like you missed two shots and keep on thinking that scene.
Miss shot and not adjust.
He does not adjust and that's the problem.
Jason just said remember, this is this is this is what year? Yeah, Yeah.
Beverly. He shot 44 shots.
This how much he lost the game, By the way.
He said I have 40 points.
Although he stole my pack babies like, um, yeah, you got 40 points board.
It took 44 shots.
He keeps on doing ahead if you struck that that I'm talking about.
And while I agree with you, from my energy standpoint, he would lift a lot of things up.
But that's one thing where he takes 44 shots in again because he quote unquote doesn't want to lose is negative because I don't want that influence on any young player on the team.
Me? I'm sorry. Thank you.
So, Chris Paul is basically a floor general, right? Eso Chris Paul averages 9.
Basically, you know, Thio playing about floor, general.
I mean, that's waiting for the weird.
Trapped that way.
What's the negative work trap? You say the track crazy.
The Russell Westbrook only averages one less assists per game.
You know what a right Alan type average 98 or nine assistant here you didn't more, but right.
But that doesn't mean that he was never carried.
Doesn't mean that year that you could get a lot of assist by again.
This is Russell Westbrook drive to the heart and deepest, and I'm not saying this is a bad thing.
It's a good thing, drives a hard defense defense, collapses and pass out from the God good thing.
But that's literally the only way, Really, You know, not to say the only way I say that right if this guy's open down on you to make that little sneak past, but if you could do that but that's not his.
That's not his makeup.
He's not looking for that.
CP three know that his whole thing about this, that I hadn't seen that that once ago and he got killed by the Spurs a Anywhere CP three goals.
Guys just looked at D.
DeAndre Jordan was looking like o e album center e want to ask you a question? I'm crazy.
If West Russell Westbrook is your player and you trade for him, who are you trading and how you building that team based on the free agent? Build your team e think it's the same deal for for Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook just to get the most points.
I'm not giving up trade assets, Right? And I don't want to give up, and I don't want to give up too much of the young core.
All I want to offer E b.
These either of these teams giving up draft picks, especially not in 2021.
But Bill your team? Like what? What What is the team? Because you gotta make it make sense.
Like it doesn't.
It's easy to say trade for a guy.
And do you just trade for him? Like, what is the team that you would build based on the draft free agency? Like, build your team? Okay.
All right, so So I just give me 60 seconds to do this.
Just all right, So So the first thing we're gonna do is ****yze the wing position.
I believe a championship team does not need a conventional power forward.
So in each deal, Julius Randle will be in the package, right? I believe in the chapel championship contender.
Going forward to say the next five years, you need to start 33 d wing like 234 and can switch on to them and hit the three at about 37 or 30%.
So any deal I'm offering Portis, Julius Randle, one of the young guys, whether the Frank D S.
J or knocks And um um, you know, some type of filler in order Thio give the other team cap relief.
But I'm not including draft picks that they asked for a draft pick.
I would just rather move on and just drafted Achillion Hayes and have him be the guy.
So you're you're starting.
That would be something like, um, the point guard.
Whether is rust or CP three RJ baron at the two or three, um, Devin vessel or Devin vessel type and then signed a guy like, um, what's his name? Jae Crowder.
So it would be like, um CP three R J.
Barrett um Devin Vassal Jae Crowder.
I would rather just just go with that and then and then with other assets with other assets, I could see if I can If I can, I would trade for for, say, a cat like Buddy Hill s so I can have you know Cem, Cem Cem Three points.
You know, some scoring, because what I what? I know what we need to do is space the floor and defend be able to to switch and defend.
Um, and also with that said, I would also ungh, Lud, that the point guard mess that we have.
So, you know, I don't want to keep d S j and Frank.
I believe one has to go.
You can't grow into young point guards at the same time.
I think it was just too much to ask for organization, so I would I would be one of them and signed a d.
So why not just invest in Dennis Smith, Julian and trying to do the same thing that you're trying to do with Russell Westbrook at four million instead of 40? What is the d s? You have dog in them? Does he have that dog like CP three has it having the oh, he was crying when? When they said we want Frank.
He's named about to cry.
But you You You look, if my, uh, no like if my mom had passed away, I averaged 50 **** points a game.
You know, I'm saying I have that **** crazy.
Yeah, as any of your parents died not knocking on wood.
My Yeah, My pops passed away.
E I was, like, three straight about.
We'll go standpoint.
Oh, everyone hopes differently.
Like, imagine not only your parent by but your dog die or something that you worked your ass off for.
And someone is trying to take it away from you, Which is the starting position that Frank took away that night.
Like they promised him he was gonna be the starter.
And they took it away from him at Madison Square Garden that night when his mom died.
You cannot like that.
He gets the pass from me.
Okay, You might have become Mohammed Ali after, but I'm sorry, but I'm giving them the pass on that one.
Because in the years before, E come on, E drug quit basketball.
I even give us ideas that I give him credit for the simple fact.
Looking back now, you actually try to play the game people a regiment river, unless what was called like, literally they allow you to green because you want somebody there.
The vast majority of players.
When someone dies, they take days, weeks, maybe even months off.
Come back and play that game.
So people saying Frank again, you're talking about a guy who lost his mother.
Yes, she has No one in the crowd knows none of us know, right? He's out there.
He's playing bad.
He's like, Oh my gosh, all these a rush of emotions.
I'm trying to keep it in, You know, the crazy.
If you had a good game and he started crying like Why are you crying? Guy? Right? So then when it came out that this is that But no, he had a bad game.
But again, his mom don't say step off his mom, those type of guys where he has it works like that like he can is that fees and him.
And you know, something spiritually happens. Whatever.
He's anomaly, he's a hero.
Jordan, begin! You quit the game after his dad died.
Like even even Tiger Woods.
His decline started when his father left when his father died. I'm sorry.
Alright, so someone said that XYZ So his natural mother died when he was young.
And then the step mother passed away, too.
That's something we didn't know, E I didn't I didn't know that either.
You know what I'm saying? So I mean, so now I think about it differently, but at the same time, A same time at the same time.
You gotta look at you know, what is D S j showing you during his career? That makes you think he could be a Derrick Rose like his second year, His second season output.
So So also s So I'm just gonna ask for doom is where is doomed.
Because do murdered me when I say d s J show potential When I was on sim show.
And I see the second yet do Mert me on national TV about that, it's just going to be inefficient.
What is doing that doing? E e magic.
Cool is a cool night.
My team won today.
Manchester United gps G two. Beautiful.
I'm telling talking Carol Lewis video, but my computer sucks.
So, um yeah, Children, I'm not too angry.
Okay, what I'm saying, but yeah, do you say is not that guy Jakey shot.
He's only a smart player lives largely because that way we get that back injury is not the same as a rookie year.
Uh, me personally in a, you know, ideal world.
I would love to put him in a D League reconstruct game.
No, he's not gonna do that.
Oh, I think once a G, they said, Look, we got the money.
I wanna go to where people see me as a legit point guard because he's only about six one.
Eso is coming on the small side.
When you're that type of guard, you better have really good shooting that she doesn't have.
You better have pinpoint a decision making right.
He's not a guy who tracked down his **** and drive to the foul line.
And what he's just not a heavy point guard.
He's a dollar shots on the top of the key or the wing and drives hope he gets a pick and drive.
Got you constructed game, bro.
God and I know it's a lot of pride, but what you gotta have you had a burnout in the MBA.
By the age of 21 26 27 28 or reconstruct yourself.
You come back maybe as a role player speaking to ah team that might give you major minutes. Ah, playoffs.
That gives you major minutes and they go.
We didn't come from because that shot world he's not gonna last time.
Trust me, that's the biggest floor.
If you got a better shot a three Z, then we'll be all right.
I'll give you should say 38%.
3 or some Like that.
Alright, is the guy you could put a fashion in the corner? He runs into the corner History, whatever Places to speed plays like one of those kind of e combo.
But when you couple comic alright, not really have one, it comes in scores, gives you see, push the pace big and shoot deadly Doesn't do that.
So Jeevan for me, Babe, my, uh I'm gonna make an argument for for the S J, not as a starter, but as a backup.
I don't believe that Derrick Rose type player that freeze he wants to see in New York is gonna win in the N B today.
I just don't see it.
I do believe that as a switch, a change of pace type player off the bench.
PSG could succeed because he could just beat up on second tier guys that don't play as well defensive defensively.
And you could just surround him with nothing but defensive players and tell him Go ham against people and I could see success off the bench for him.
I just don't see success for him as a starter.
And likewise again, I just feel like he could in spot minutes, do some of the same things that Westbrook could do.
I'm not saying he is Westbrook, or even that he could be on Westbrook's level.
I'm just saying he could actually do some of the same things for much less money, and you could go after other people, Even Rick said, go after.
Christian would like if Christian, what is truly as good as he is next, commit Christian.
What? Mitch could be incredible defensively.
Ah, lot of switching a lot of length frank on the court.
You could have more length like I'm not saying I want Christian.
What? I'm just saying there are avenues that other people you could go along than going after Westbrook.
A guy like Christian would.
I would love to get rid of rental because we have a guy like Christian.
Would you just face it out? You run that pick and roll slash pick, pick and roll Pop, where you have a guy like Mitchell.
So you have a bunch on one side.
You have Mitchell Robinson, whether the top of the key and you use one of the guys higher up near the fire lines instead of picking Fisherwoman is gonna pop out as the pick of what was happening.
Um, or Pop, let's say pop out into the corner as if you know what was happening.
Eso Now you have the option of giving it to Mitch in that range.
Don't like yourself a passive guy that you would.
That's that's a massive combination right there.
Yeah, e didn't like So you didn't like my idea of Devon vessel on Jae Crowder? Basically, is what you're getting at e o.
Did you just see the technology just e away from E now he's over national train.
No, I mean on a no.
I'm only on the vassal train because I'm only on the vassal train because I can because I could get a rate.
Get Mitch out of their You know what I'm saying? And add a vassal and a J Crowder, which gives you flexibility to 34 So you know a guy.
Are you finally going to say that? No.
I would like a situation where we get buddy.
Hell, the devil. Devin.
I mean, but he healed in their in the stomach on the floor the same time way.
Chris, Paul, Wait.
But they looking.
But here, the same player a not the same exact player.
But type of women claim the same type of somebody who is not a guys, I think Bloody hell.
I think Buddy held in his mind, thinks he can score 30 points a game.
And that's the reason why Sacramento wants to get them out of there because he doesn't want to run.
He don't don't feel like he should be held down by the offense.
That's what the hell for you.
And he knows that that team doesn't have the coaching.
They don't have the front office to really be like to give him that hard line like Ortio.
You know, I guess I have the awesome So you get country.
But it's like, you know, he's one of those type of guys who swelling.
So he knows the Kings are Dumpster juice, right? But he knows the diverse.
So he knows that he sees his playoffs.
He knows he goes to a team that they need shooting, and that's what they're gonna ask him.
But he has a contract was signed.
Appears for four years. 85.
E with the hard work apart.
He is a hard work because he was not where he was supposed to be drafted like, and he stayed in four years to get to that point.
I take that e on buddy Buddy was Aaron Naismith niece buddy.
Here was Aaron Smith coming out.
No handles like what I say, but now he can create shots for others, but he doesn't pass that ball.
What if he's not passing the ball? So what is the difference between the Nace mint? If you have two guys who don't complemented Children on the court, you wouldn't run into a lodge in.
That's why coral, whose Kerry or not scary, but Carl could be.
That's your mental development of scene, because you development and RG the same way they both have similar style to the game.
I was like, Alright, whose gonna play on the person who's gonna be sure the ball is gonna be driving a post? I don't think so.
Yeah, I got a problem with I know you mentioned basketball, So yes, basketballs, though.
And and crowd are good.
Bash vessel man, Don't! Why don't you go back, vassal? I'm not e defensive player, though, though defense from college does not quickly translate to defense to the E.
And that's why your guy Miles Bridges struggled as you said First year, right? But you don't know who what grown man, You know, go buy noodles.
E mean that guy that who cares? Yeah, who cares? You 67 What? You 67? Maybe it kills out there in prison or worse, Name E Uh, what a gyp.
My man was like, 671 81.
You know, I'm saying we told my vessel No noodles.
Um, so yeah, Alright.
I wanted to talk to about all the people.
Uh, yeah, yes or no? Yeah.
Thank you. Know no.
You start getting the injuries that you got and old was gone.
Yeah, he's a good shooter, but his game was also put a pin on cuts and gods of the Basque cut on the knee.
And we get those injuries, man, they build up right? And I know he's He's always telling the 30 right? 28 like that.
So, yeah, I'm gonna be It's gonna cost a lot.
They might be trying away from him, but I think they're gonna try to sell them.
I Hey, he's just not a player.
Like, where does he fit? As you know, he pays in that Donovan Mitchell type.
Donovan Mitchell doesn't such a high level regards.
See, being a two guard and also hit the ball.
Obviously, have your boy Carly my Collier.
But yeah, he's just not He's just not that I don't know Injuries. Interesting.
Yeah, I get to that.
You know, I just doesn't moving.
What about e se? Yes, I say yes.
And and and the reason And and here's the thing with Zach Lavine.
I'm also willing to part with a draft pick not a good one.
No good one e, But e I mean, when I say a good one, I mean, not a prime one.
Not 2021 traffic, right? I'd be willing to part with the with the eighth pick this year and with the Dallas Mavericks, 2023 1st round up and and say Portis and Randall And I don't care if you have six power forward, I don't care.
But that's what I'm offering.
So let me ask you about Zach's 31.
Isis, the guy shot 20.
Uh, you know, that was 25 points a game off 30% from the three and 45% from the field.
But that's what Chicago team please.
It was bad injuries, but when you see a guy like, say, England, right, England is a What is it about that? Because I'm always like this dude, he's gonna break out right? And it seems like he broke out, but it lets you know it didn't lead to better team player.
So what is it about Zach well being? Let me let me start off with a little history lesson on Zach will be his last year in in Minnesota, right? He was coached by Tom Thibodeau.
Tom Thibodeau got him Toby from like a 15 point per game score toe a 20 point per games.
He had him working the same way that that Jimmy Butler works.
Ah, lot of off ball movement giving goes grabs.
So think about this.
Um, you have cat at the pinch Post given go to Zach Lavine.
Quick versus speed to the basket, drawing fouls.
So now if you have Mitch at the pinch books given the Balto Exactly being this is all predicated on exactly what being actually I mean sorry, Mitchell Robinson actually being able to hit a pinch pose, mid range jumper, but I'm pretty sure you can.
Or shooting the three you could actually succeed with that kind of kind of play.
Now RJ in this scenario is is Andrew Wiggins, R J.
Is a better version of Andrew Wiggins.
Off ball reads doesn't hold the ball as much as Andrew Wiggins, and also you can play make slightly better than Andrew Wiggins.
Zach Lavine fits what Thibodeau wants to do, and he has had success animals exact.
Levin has been noted as crediting pivotal for actually turning his career around because he, before he broke his leg, actually was on the I think it was the M C, L A.
C or something that he actually was on the path to becoming a like a All Star type player.
They just treated them for a better player.
And Jimmy Butler and Jimmy Butler is a better version of Zach Lavine, which is what role that Zach Lavine plays for.
That's what, exactly, being prominent and actually get the contract that you got.
I this past season went to Charlotte when Zach Lavine dropped 52 hit 12 threes effortlessly again Charlotte and won that game.
I'm kind of stole on him because I just look at his jump shot and it's easy.
He doesn't have to play with the ball You could, you could do is somewhat.
You could play them kind of like, Oh, imagine Boston where exactly? Venus, a pseudo Tatum type player, but in a different way because he could actually play without the ball and you could have RG run point at times or play the What's the other kid for Boston the other way, feeling you could have argued with you and brownish like this avenues to open it up because he's a good three point shooter that could shoot effortlessly and he doesn't need the ball.
That's the one thing that I think is the biggest misconception.
They had injuries this past season.
Jim Boylan was a fricking idiot is terrible Gulch.
And I'm just saying, like, e could give you all videos if you all want.
But like Zach, Lavine is a good player with Tom Thibodeau specifically with Tom Thibodeau.
They see the five.
They see the piece that you build up like the final piece you bringing, going around, you know, a lot of assets again. I'm sorry.
I know the word ****, but they're not going to sell them low.
I agree, but you gotta think like freeze.
He wants to trade for for buddy, buddy.
Like in the same way you will use buddy.
Hell, you could use that.
So, like, her sweaters exactly.
Really is cheaper.
Yeah, Just give me one second. I'll be right back.
But you're right again.
I think that being I mean that we will see more dynamic body. Good.
I'm just scared of what asked.
Obviously Wanna give? Not Not like that.
Uh, we'll give up.
I mean, one of the first round it is possibly would you? So, freezing time Because you have to give up.
First round it is The Mavericks picks a guy like knocks, and he s j him for Zach Lavine off Westbrook.
I would rather have, um, Zach Lavine when you're giving up that because I don't want to give Houston anything, you know, for Westbrook, right? I think I think their best benefit is getting cat relief.
So we get them, Randall Importance.
That's automatically $33 million off their books.
If after two years.
You know, I'm saying that helps Houston tremendously because Houston has one of the cheapest owners in the game.
That's one of the things people don't people sleep on.
It's the reason why Daryl Morey was handcuffed at the G. M.
You know what I'm saying? It is one of those things where Daryl Morey E can't stand.
Uh, I think he was handcuffed just Well, I don't see a handful.
I think Daryl Morey, but he could outsmart the MBA.
You think Rick thinks the Chicago's owner is cheaper? I think it's It's between Chicago, um, Phoenix and Houston.
But I understand what you're saying.
You think he think Daryl Morey thought he was the smartest doing the room? Yeah, but because Okay, but Houston paid.
They gave that absurd contract to What's the name? So what? To CP three? Because I can't really say, You know, everybody know more than me that guys, we just don't wanna face it and get it.
So you might know more than a No.
Uh, he says Chicago's on a cheaper if he says I don't know, like that like that, but yeah, I just I'm not We're not exactly the your work, but you have to.
I'm trying to say how can you maneuver that and not give up so much happening? Well, course they give r J e.
They really put our down for a rookie.
Who Yes, he didn't have a great efficiency, but let's be honest.
Just from the eye test, right, s So you're not I think you look better.
Some veterans out there who should have been.
I just think he looked better than he's out driving Thio.
You didn't say you didn't say God, Wayne Ellington.
He didn't say your job.
Wayne Ellington or Reggie Bullock.
Drive, your first round pick from last year to Chicago.
You have no patience for playing a that the point.
No pictures for players, man.
Yeah, train R J.
Or the team that had freaking Fizdale and Mike Miller, who didn't giving them after 20 games because he knew he was gonna be anymore.
I'm just confused as of how people org You know, many rookies did not do this and do that, and they freaking pop off there.
I mean, yeah, I'm not comparing him to say he's gonna be a good guy, but honestly, what? His first for 34 years? Three years? Yeah, and he had a fortuitous uh, Grossberg what I'm saying, like, come on, man.
Like we have to have some type of patient.
Yeah, I'm not trading him for trash.
Well, Rick, what would you train it? I'm not sure what war is.
No, I don't think it's what's with that? I'm not trade for us.
But Zach Lavine Oh, business.
You get a guy exactly being here you go.
I don't like politics, but would you please put me down, please? Obligated to Yeah, I agree with you.
Rick E is the move.
Zach Lavine is the move.
If if you could get Zach Lavine for the for the for the player, for the team option contracts and maybe a first round pick that's down the road or two.
I do exactly of anything, but I'm not giving up r j.
I mean, it's ridiculous.
You know Dr who dropped you guys? Actually, you drive.
I'll go after any point guard that's available.
Or, to be honest with you, I'll just leaving the Celtics tweeted that they built the team.
Just keep drafting god**** wings.
Who the **** is you? Just gonna like? It's the best freaking way.
It's the middle of the ****ing court.
It's 66526 gate.
I mean, 696 10 you know, and you just keep drafting freaking wings until you hit the right one.
That would be you could take fliers like you could trade 27 38 next year's Dallas big for Zach Lavine.
Who cares? And just keep drafting wings until you get the right one.
It's like, just like in your Jets fan.
Just keep drafting their input.
Uh, a story of all your just the most effective position, period.
So you just let me let me Let me just say this thing about the Jets just real quick, man.
So people say the Jets don't have weapons, and the weapons look terrible, right? Because the passing game, because the passing game look terrible.
Say you contract Sam Journal and add for the Lawrence, you automatically go eight mate with that ball.
Oh, no, e guarantee.
E watch party dog.
I watched part of the Jets game the other day, and I'm like, Dude is missing missing targets by 2 to 3 yards.
If you travel, Lawrence will at least have your playmakers have the ability to try to make a player.
You know what I'm saying? And these he'll throw to the right.
Get you back, please.
You're gonna see because you're gonna get Trevor Lawrence O.
But you're getting Trevor Lawrence Wright.
But next year we also have the Seahawks first round draft.
So you get a guy Terrence Marshall from L s U.
You can get a bunch of where you get the God I'm in, rock.
Whatever his name is from USC, you get literally a bunch of weapons after trouble.
Once your first round a second, like we have e think way have another third.
You know, I'm not sure.
Way have a first round.
He has some other I think so.
But you can pick a bunch of Why were you Take a bunch of others you could pick.
You can let me go.
Trouble runs turns Marshall and that kid.
In whatever a team, whatever.
The running back from Clinton right there.
You just you right? Right there.
You just remember You are so trouble, Lord.
Unless Joe does it Or less, Uh, your boy, which will not happen but the kid swell from Oregon.
If I could go number two, you know, drop down, Douglas better just pick Trevor Lawrence and a bunch of weapons.
I'm talking album tomorrow.
I'm talking about Terrence Marshall.
The kid I'm and rather other kid from Oklahoma State is Yes.
Yeah, Oh, yes, I'm football.
Just just depressing, you know? I'm telling you that.
What? Okay, so for everybody, get things.
Joe Burrow is good.
Trevor Lawrence is three times Trevor Lawrence is I don't people trying to just get Andrew luck.
I felt ended up with a better possible.
Okay, that's that's just person to me.
But, um, trouble is, I do He's Yeah.
The thing about some God, which I like is that I think that somebody could have been a lot better with E.
Donald if he goes to the Steelers. Mark artworks.
You go the Steelers and he goes to the Colts and he goes the Saints.
Any of those three teams, he goes there, he's going to kill because they had weapons.
They're gonna tell them who to look for you.
I mean, well, we had a game last year with Adam games.
You played the pages.
I believe this is a game, not against garbage.
We played again.
And this dude, this mother this to gaze literally the pages kept calling zero bliss.
Basically, there's no safety help, right? Right.
We kept saying seven step five step drop backs, right.
If you have no safety help, even if you want to.
Do you have your wide receivers challenge the cornerbacks deep? Because there is no safety Is one on one or you quote Adam Gates loves you.
Call screams, get out quickly or get it out to where? Obviously the safety anything call that Adam case is an idiot.
Your bare can coach just better than engaged Gates is dumb dumb.
So $7 and be good.
I'm sorry. I don't need a wax poetic about death.
The timber launches next.
Uh, I'm gonna Trevor.
Trevor Lawrence Is Adam luck? I mean, and Adam, look, the Andrew Luck I Q right, But But he's so he's He's probably I would say, maybe even smarter.
But but But here's Here's the thing, though.
Here's the thing, but But he is Tom Brady game manager type.
So he's gonna guaranteed to make the smart play every time, even when the coaches calling the dumb ass play like Adams get engaged in.
Two weeks ago when he called, I think he called like some weird seven.
Some, like seven yards out, like four times six times in a row, and then followed by bubble screens.
And you know what I'm saying? He's like a offense.
Why would you say two weeks? Are you just gonna? Last week you lost 20 points.
Talking way had our first down our 1st 1st down in the fourth quarter.
You don't have no two weeks ago.
You go a few days ago. The last Sunday.
It's laughing, laughing bad, like, but I don't see you want to see this one.
Breezy likes toe amp it up to you.
Argue with them.
You talk about what you like and what was a different type of process.
I think I think trouble once is right there.
Can't call every day.
And you know who that simple team have? Weapons Wives? Who? I'm sorry, Silicon.
Who did that? Stanford team have weapons flies? Um, they had a bunch of tight ends. I can't remember.
They had they have a title.
They had very people, son.
That running back, though? Exactly.
But But if we get back to the Levin. Thanks, man.
Listen, I'm not saying I think the reason why we disagree on Zach Lavine and R.
Barrett and Russell Westbrook is because we don't have a clear direction.
Like Like my thing is, if we're focused on solely just winning, trying to win every game, I think you gotta go with the West front teacher.
And, like maybe trying to incorporate a kind of ham.
Then if they don't trade for a veteran point guard trying to develop beer J or Frank and then if they don't work out Jack a kind of him next year, I'm on the booth like a marriage.
Now Luca might be getting up to carry him.
But imagine if KP obviously KPs are gonna come back and they fault, right? You saw Luca.
That's average in this and that and that he does not do up right.
If the Mavericks thoughts have faltered, right, you don't make the playoffs that it becomes a lot of value.
Sure, he's right.
Surely, yeah, it's tough protective, though.
I think it's a protection or top for one. Huntington.
E for coming and hotels.
I mean, obviously this is a crapshoot.
I just don't want to give up its two wrong player Westbrook.
Not Levine may, because I'm looking at stats on my own.
I don't watch Enough of good bye.
No improved on Start going, like 20 or something, maybe two years ago or maybe two years ago, like maybe 17 or 18 and start to improve.
Um, I think I've never last year like placing, but I don't know he had that much this year.
Uh, it was pretty good and his efficiency was good, but the next to get the right guy, then they have to get the thing I get scared about about these guys who do so well in the several teams like they don't elevated teams.
Right? So Aluko read, we just talked about the elevated seem right, Especially papers hurt.
How exactly? Pena's good as he is.
Not well, he's like this.
The thing is, is that like in full Levin, he had a coach that was worse than David Krizia? Let's start with, uh, I'm not like bro.
I have Chicago Bulls fans that I gotta bring them on and we're gonna talk with bro.
He was worst like Boiling is bench, and I'm just saying it's not like I understand where you're coming from.
I'm just saying that Levin solve the problem at the two guard moves Arctic to the three.
And then also, you could probably get rid of Randall in that process.
You could then add Christian would you could have, like once.
Once Randall is gone, you're then putting Mitch back in the starting lineup, and then you could find your power forward. That could shoot.
You could then find your point guard who could. Actually.
What is a dinosaur, though, bro? Just a e a That spot.
Like whoever you wanna put you could you could put any player in that position.
I'm just calling e.
What I'm saying is, you get a power forward a four.
How about that? I use the number four is far better.
No, I don't wanna I don't wanna I don't wanna for I want three e.
That position that a body on the floor.
I don't care if somebody could shoot a reporter asking, What's the What's the proper trait for a Okay, you got to him First round draft picks.
So, first of all, Dallas Dallas pick next year, right? No.
Already already know Dallas picking 2021.
That's how I'm not doing it.
I'm not gonna That's fine.
I'm not paying 2021 picks.
We owe his ass up the Korean bythe your gas up in here, man.
Tired of talking to try a Yeah.
Hey, Nick, would you do? Would you Would you consider trade the 2023 1st round pick and the 2020 22 2023? Okay, try.
I'm not trading 2022.
Be a money based track.
Is that the one? I'm not giving that up either.
21 2023 right? Yep.
The 2023 1 is top 10 protected, right that.
Yeah, that one is like top 10 protected.
It converts the two second round picks.
And next year you got the first one.
Oh, there's record, right.
Here we go. Here we go.
Yeah, but let me just let me just give you my straight with me.
Um, I will do a signing straight for more Mo Harkless, Dallas pick next year.
And any two second round picks that into the corner addition along with Frank and yeah, I don't see myself though you to black man.
Yeah, e gotta African knows.
Yo, I'm Yeah, I'm trying on my phone.
Okay, you don't matter.
I don't need to see me, But what I'm saying is that Levin is gonna hurt.
So you picked you picked the pain.
Is gonna Knicks fans always talking this mess about We're gonna get this guy they're gonna give us extra picture.
So we can the person still have value? Nobody trying to help us Exactly.
Ain't nobody trying to give you 26 points per game score with athleticism getting paid, like penny pennies on the dollar.
When they know you when they know you're the worst scoring team in the league and you desperately need that.
So So I wanna hear it.
E don't wanna give up.
I don't want to give up the 2021 picks.
Well, okay, Rick, at least you have the way I'll picture or I'm trying to frame.
This is you give up the least of the two.
It's still valuable, and you could sell someone on posing on that poor Zynga's injury being something and Dallas falling.
I do not wanna touch those 2021 picks, because what about those be good.
Grade off full of Assad's.
I give up picks this year, but not not 2021.
Okay, so what do you give up the eighth? And let's say trade more heartless than Frank.
And I think Kevin, not so I have to be in there too.
Why would they want to stop and treat more e make the money work, though.
E Just give him a contract.
What? I'm gonna try to get on the lab.
Can you just give them the 27th? The oils? Uh, I'll knocks disorder Eso Grandal was random.
I don't have a I'm just trying because I don't want to give that a pick.
I don't mind getting 27th pick put this year and maybe that 2023.
Uh, yeah, I agree.
You're gonna have to sell.
You're gonna have to get a lot get without, like, knots, you know, You type them up random.
Yeah, I think that will work.
27 Knox Randall.
I don't know whether the guys could you go in there and make it work in that take you think 27.
I think you have to add the 8 ft you're gonna have to get E give up. Eight.
Picture and carry a service way with my star are this is your toes are his backup.
All right? So, yeah, because the thing is, you're gonna have to give up your young players.
And the reason why I mentioned more heartless It gives them security in the sense that Zach Lavine is still assigned for the next two years.
They need players that's gonna be on the team like Otto Porter expires this year.
But next year or something like that.
And and like that, you know, all that stuff.
Um, so who knows? I just feel like the other one out, Big dog.
