But here we're gonna be talking about He's gonna be out 15 minutes later.
00:01:08
So obviously telling about some random stuff in regards to, uh, somebody's clutch points articles, obviously might be joint comes out.

00:01:18
Suits everybody living the good life.
00:01:20

00:01:22
Salute.
00:01:23
Um, yeah.
00:01:24
It's also gonna talk about some from our side of Meyers joining the Brooklyn Nets coaching staff.
00:01:29
I think that's gonna make a difference on you. Also got.
00:01:33
You've got Shaq making fun of Dwight Howard, which I love.
00:01:36
I know people say it's petty or whatnot, but I love it I love it if he's going to get up there and started crying, acting like he wanna Oscar a Grammy like he was a great contributor, a guy that was supposed to be had the physical abilities to be an all time great and basically as good as he Waas, people could argue that underachieved.
00:01:54
So, yeah, let's get to it.
00:01:55
So with the Michael Jordan Michael Jordan comes out.
00:01:58
Yes, Manchester United's playing well, and I'm gonna talk to you guys after, Ah, little bit because I want to see we'll be interested in me covering some Manchester United games.
00:02:07
I want to cover that Manchester United game with PhD.
00:02:09
They play Chelsea tomorrow, an important huge game.
00:02:12
Eso definitely want to see if you guys are interested for my soccer fans.
00:02:16
Just you have to be Manchester United.
00:02:18
Um, so here's what.
00:02:21
Here's what Michael Jordan had to say on an hour long interview with the cigar aficionado aficionado, which actually watch two eyes actually, pretty interesting.
00:02:30
I don't smoke cigars, but for some reason watching that we could do, I think that this Cuban do that runs.
00:02:35
I think he's Cuban, makes you want to smoke cigars from reason.
00:02:37
But here, talking with a guy from a cigar aficionado, he said, Michael Jordan.
00:02:42
By the way, he said, Tiger Woods played at his peak somewhere toward the end of my career.
00:02:46
Then what changed from time frame to now social media tweeting all those type of things that has invaded the personality and personal time of individuals is to the point where some people have to have been able to utilize it to the financial gain and things of that nature.
00:02:58
But for like, for someone like myself, and this is what Tiger deals with, I don't know if I could have survived this Twitter error, where you don't have a privacy that you want and what seems to be very innocent could be always misinterpreted.
00:03:09
I actually agree wholeheartedly with what he was saying about that, because in this era it seems like people are more concerned, Uh, with social media more concerned with the image versus playing right.
00:03:23
Michael Jordan came from a very strong family background.
00:03:26
The father rest in peace was, you know, really, really all Michael Jordan, the brothers, to be extremely and competitive and everything they do play psychological games with them.
00:03:34
Hey, comes from a way different era, uh, than what we see now.
00:03:38
And I actually missed that.
00:03:39
Her, because it was more about greatness, is more about what's inside of you.
00:03:42
Right? So people like to talk about Michael Jordan, and, you know, I always compared with LeBron James.
00:03:48
Think Michael Jordan, that what I like is that even if you didn't like him, even didn't like playing with him, as some people try to make it seem like he's the first person to play with What I like about Michael Jordan was that he found the best in you, whether you like it or not.
00:03:58
Now we go all sit here and say, Oh, you know, Michael John was a jerk.
00:04:01
I wouldn't like to play with him, Bob Block.
00:04:03
But what I like about somebody is that sometimes in our lives we it could build up from whatever.
00:04:08
Maybe maybe your parents don't give you don't give you that.
00:04:10
If that battery in your back to be better than what you are, maybe sometimes the environment around you put you down.
00:04:15
One thing I respect about Michael Jordan was that he basically said, All right, even If you don't want to be the best for a long time before all your life, when you play with me, you're gonna have to be your best.
00:04:26
And let's see where you go from here.
00:04:27
Let's just see where you go from there from you play that your apex, your top best that you can be in your life.
00:04:33
Let's see what that takes you.
00:04:34
Now, if you don't want to do that for the rest of life, fair enough.
00:04:37
When you're playing with me, Michael Jordan, you gotta be the best.
00:04:39
And it might make you a better person.
00:04:41
Look, Steve Kerr, who was a bit player with that team.
00:04:45
He's a coach of the words won a championship.
00:04:47
You can stay and tell me what him play when I joined in.
00:04:49
Shaping up to be that Scottie Pippen, one of the greatest players of all time.
00:04:53
Had that might be true.
00:04:54
If you remember.
00:04:55
I don't remember my Scottie Pippen got traded by Seattle SuperSonics to the Bulls, so Skype it was in this can't miss prospect.
00:05:01
You have to develop under that team.
00:05:02
They were like, Oh, when Scott Scott people got this first year averaged 8.5 points.
00:05:06
I believe from the bench, he's a He's a big time player in his first year.
00:05:09
So that's why I respect Michael Jordan.
00:05:11
Man, you can't think about guys like LeBron James and some of these other guys and and I'm not trying to insult anybody.
00:05:17
Particularly with this error.
00:05:18
Is that you know what this is? Why Jimmy Butler? Such a breath of fresh air Because you see a guy who he put his all into it to try to make himself the best that he could be.
00:05:28
Ah, half as Jimmy Butler is not taking that he team to the finals.
00:05:33
It's just not a bunch of, ah bunch of undrafted rookies Tyler Herro, Obama by both of those guys came first.
00:05:40
Contributors like Duncan Robinson Kendrick, especially in regular season.
00:05:43
Those guys don't make the finals with without Jimmy Bullard without Jimmy Butler playing to his best.
00:05:50
I mean, there's a reason why you love Kobe because it wasn't because of his attitude, because a lot of people hated code.
00:05:54
You know why you love Kobe was because of his work at work ethic, because every time you saw Kobe on the court he gave it his all.
00:05:59
Even when he was being greedy and selfish.
00:06:04
You saw what Kobe It was for him to put the best into his ability to even try to be such a nice play.
00:06:10
Even if it was not good team basketball, right? It was in his heart to say, You know what? I'm gonna go on this road.
00:06:16
I might go to alone stupidly, but I try to be the best of what I am, right? You don't hear excuses from them.
00:06:22
That's why I love Jordan.
00:06:23
You don't hear excuses from you will not be able to beat the Celtics.
00:06:27
Not being able to beat the Pistons at the time.
00:06:29
Yummy.
00:06:30
LeBron James, you hear excuses here in the air, they gotta go and get people on on sports media to say this and that about them For what? I'm watching the game.
00:06:40
LeBron, You went one of finals after finds you try to say, Oh, you hurt your hand and you want some bs wrap around Jay hands and make it seem like you truly hurting literally.
00:06:50
That night you were seeing giving high fives and 60 kids myself. Come on, bro.
00:06:54
This is why some people don't respect LeBron James.
00:06:56
Go because it's not the fact that, not necessarily fact that you didn't win, but the fact that you don't take accountability like, where is the where is the hero's trial? You know? I mean, where's the true heroes trial with LeBron James, Right? Where is that you don't see with them.
00:07:10
So he always wants to be the guy at the top.
00:07:13
But it's like, Did you work your way up there? And I say, You haven't put in hard work, but it's like you play with some of the best players, right? And you force your way to play with some of the best players.
00:07:22
Then you want people to compare uto, join us.
00:07:24
It's like no those people.
00:07:25
That's a different heroes trying.
00:07:26
You got nice heroes, tried to name your own, but those guys were from the mud in terms of work their way up.
00:07:33
Now on T Kobe play with shack, right? Joins up in a different national.
00:07:37
Alright, it's him.
00:07:38
Kareem Magic.
00:07:39
Uh, you know, people say Oscar Robinson, that's so I mean is with it so back to what? What else joining Say when you're talking about super teams, You say, Um, I think you wanna be able to have a competitive balance in the week, Jordan said via cigar aficionado on YouTube.
00:07:54
Whatever.
00:07:55
And if a player is able to choose determine what team he plays for, then you are gonna have some town discrepancy in elite.
00:07:59
So everybody wants to go to Chicago and all the best players are gonna be in Chicago.
00:08:03
You're starting to see a little bit of it now where all the stars try to get together.
00:08:06
The same team, I think, is gonna hurt the over asking of the lead.
00:08:08
From a competitive standpoint.
00:08:09
Only one or two teams to be great and the other 28 will be garbage now suits everybody to check my Morgan Steven Fox living a good life on May soon on.
00:08:18
I agree with him into a sense, but you also realize he's playing in the extremely small market, right? He's playing in Charlotte.
00:08:23
Don't really want to go there, right? I mean, um, Charlotte before he's been running a really bad **** assed great is joining us as a player is a terrible GM.
00:08:33
Terrible on a regards the team, right.
00:08:36
Um but he has a good point.
00:08:38
Look, he's talking about parity where essentially essentially a lot of these.
00:08:43
A lot of these teams that lack of competitive competitiveness, right, it hurts the league right when you have, ah, solid 8, 10 teams to go all challenge for the title.
00:08:51
I'm not talking about.
00:08:52
Get to the players. Talk about challenge for the title.
00:08:54
You have a stronger league, you have more fans, you're gonna have fans.
00:08:57
Indiana.
00:08:58
You're gonna have fans in, uh, Miami.
00:09:00
Yeah, fans in, in in Sacramento, you're gonna have people all over the place.
00:09:06
And that's where you create legends.
00:09:07
Legendary, so called legendary things.
00:09:09
I mean, if the Kings won, it would have been allegedly team just winning one because there's the King's.
00:09:12
It was fun to watch him play, even when the championship so called championship time, they didn't have Mike Williams a white chocolate.
00:09:19
Whatever you call.
00:09:21
So I agree with joining the sense.
00:09:22
I mean, it's it's cool again.
00:09:24
I'm from I'm from the joint everywhere.
00:09:26
If you're the best player in the league or if you want the best players and you want to see the beat of the best players I was is like, it's like the Viking thing, right? When you beat these teams and you have the head you could just put on your counter and say I beat Reggie Miller. I beat Patrick Ewing.
00:09:39
I be Alonzo Mourning.
00:09:41
I beat Penny Penny a shop.
00:09:44
Yeah, I'd be, uh, Gary Payton, Del of shrimp. Sean. Ken.
00:09:49
I'd be the great, uh, Karl Malone and John Stockton.
00:09:54
What happened to that? Now we could sit and talk about the n b a losing rains because the whole hopes up and they are losing that they are losing.
00:10:00
So they and Adam Silver sharpen up.
00:10:03
He said, We're gonna stop that next year.
00:10:04
So over people, I think the NBA's all they want is money.
00:10:07
They play, they play the game and they lost.
00:10:09
They roll the dice and they lost.
00:10:10
But, uh, to build back up the league, I think they have to find ways to build carry.
00:10:16
Now, we talked about this on the channel before where Andy and go subscribe to any end on on SportsCastr.
00:10:23
We're talking about ways to improve the league and I think one of ways increased parity is a long form where basically, you reverse how the draft works in terms of standings, and you make it so that the ninth to the last teams, they got to compete for the ninth spot to get the number one drafted.
00:10:38
Right? So even if I'm not making the playoffs, I'm gonna fight extremely hard to try to get that night pick, because it's gonna give me a better chance to get a top drafted, right? And I think that's how you increase parity because a lot of owners to send back they don't care. They have a trade young.
00:10:51
They have, uh, whoever they have.
00:10:53
Whoever on that team, they don't They don't really care toe improve the team.
00:10:56
I mean, they have their draw, they're making their money.
00:10:59
Okay, good on.
00:11:01
I think that's I think that's that hurts the league long term.
00:11:03
And it's is badly so to me, man, I think if they could be man, I'm sorry.
00:11:09
Oh, my God.
00:11:10
I was trying to put you Oh, So what's everybody SportsCastrs Well, to man thanks for joining, but I agree join a sense that if they could try to make it so that, um well, first I got to call the game a lot better.
00:11:23
I don't like I don't like some of the BS calls.
00:11:26
I don't like some of the trash call to make certain stars Thio basically create artificial stars.
00:11:32
I don't like that N b.
00:11:33
I think it's trash.
00:11:34
So whichever way they can to create parity, they need to do that.
00:11:38
Obviously, joining us by a little biased.
00:11:39
But I agree with him, you know? I mean, watch Dwight Howard, like granted, if the Miami Heat beat the Lakers is great, because now you're seeing this this organic team with a good free agent that no one I'm not care.
00:11:51
No one says no one was saying that he was gonna go to finals.
00:11:54
Everybody gets in and try to act like, you know, reading.
00:11:57
So if they could make that work, I mean that he'd be the lake.
00:12:02
Excuse me? That he'd be the Lakers.
00:12:03
Obviously he would be happy about it.
00:12:05
But, you know, they got to find a way to increase parity.
00:12:08
I don't know how they do that.
00:12:10
Um, somehow make coach important again.
00:12:15
I don't know this, but, you know, watching LeBron James and almost buddies get together, it just feels cheap, you know? I mean, that's why I would have loved to see the Nuggets versus the Heat to most of organic teams going at it with budding stars.
00:12:28
They all drafted.
00:12:29
Um, obviously Butler is coming in free agent.
00:12:32
But again, this is not a guy that everybody was called the 18 free agent yet toe have.
00:12:37
So yeah, and Brown owns the agency.
00:12:40
Which is ridiculous is a conflict of interest, and they allow us an MBA.
00:12:44
If you want to complain about how boxing his MBA is just corrupt when it comes to that, you can.
00:12:48
How can LeBron James have his own agency and bringing you? That's why Marcus Morris had the whole issue.
00:12:54
What I'm saying is, trash is absolute trash.
00:12:56
The Latin MBA.
00:12:57
That's one of things, people.
00:12:59
LeBron James is slowly becoming a divisive figure device if you figure in the game because people CNN's like the product is not better.
00:13:05
Uh, per se, you're bringing this guy on as this is great person.
00:13:09
That was great, this greatest of all time.
00:13:11
You say he's a goat, but every time you see him, he's losing more than his winning and when he didn't He has a stack team, so it's So where is the hero? Where's the hero trial and tribulation that you see LeBron James? There's a reason why people of Jordan I hated during growing up when you look at this career is like, Yo, dude, this really this really came into a team with a whole bunch of guys who, a drug addicted from his words, not mine, got our from his in situations, came into a team where literally, he had nothing.
00:13:36
Chicago was nothing when Jordan came there and he worked his tail off was getting killed in the East with nothing before Pippen, he was getting killed.
00:13:44
So Israel is I don't I agree with Jordan.
00:13:48
Uh, God increasing parity got imprudently because this is this is not gonna work 70% down from last year.
00:13:54
NBA is not never say is dying, but it's not sustainable.
00:13:58
If all the people that double MBA that wants to kill the MBA, let me help you guys out, WMD makes no money.
00:14:04
You've been losing money since your inception.
00:14:07
I want to talk about equality.
00:14:08
If things were actually equal, the WNBA's would not exist.
00:14:12
So Briana.
00:14:13
Smart Swart, whatever her name is.
00:14:15
Wanna get up there? Tracy McGrady is trying to tell you.
00:14:17
Hey, you need to lower the rim.
00:14:19
We're trying to make his people to step on eggshells with these people.
00:14:21
They want to say ESPN myself.
00:14:23
I would just tell us straight up. Look, I'm Tracy Democrat.
00:14:26
I'm a hall of fame. If you wanna give me at the station, whatever.
00:14:28
I'm again on podcasting.
00:14:29
All advertising, right? Let me help you out.
00:14:31
No one is watching the w N B a.
00:14:33
The key demographic.
00:14:34
W va.
00:14:35
Is older.
00:14:36
Is older men.
00:14:37
It's not women.
00:14:38
The same people who complain on Twitter about men this minute They're not watching WB.
00:14:41
They're watching the MBA.
00:14:43
So be honest. Smart.
00:14:44
If you want to survive, lower the room, making more exciting where I could see you guys dunk, make the ball.
00:14:49
I mean, balls really small in the regular, be it.
00:14:52
Well, I'm trying to help you out.
00:14:53
It's not about you because you're you're not making money.
00:14:56
You're losing the lead.
00:14:57
The NBA subsidized w NBA.
00:14:58
So I you know, I just don't like when people killed man and all the w the Embassy.
00:15:04
No, LeBron.
00:15:05
LeBron James makes 0.
00:15:06
4% off the NBA revenues.
00:15:11
Got a smart whatever.
00:15:12
Our sorry superb makes 0.
00:15:13
3% of the WB revenues.
00:15:16
If you did the math reason why, Briana Smart What, uh, super is making less money because w I mean is not generate any money and she's on my revenues.
00:15:27
Imagine if they said profits.
00:15:29
You make zero.
00:15:31
Well, obviously her salary would be part of the cost, but thank God they're doing it at revenue, where you're part of the course versus Hey, we're gonna give you part of profits is you're not making any profits so open.
00:15:42
W NBA place for slamming NBA players Old uh, Harrison Barnes and Harrison Barnes was was the number one rated guy come out of high school, won a championship with the Warriors? Let's let's not slam people's names, because again, if you have to send your best to play the MBA for, ah, billion dollar check, you're not winning that game. WMD.
00:16:01
You got people on the vast majority of people that get on ESPN allies, female writers and SportsCastrs get on and want to issue the MBA.
00:16:08
They don't watch the WB either.
00:16:10
Like that one lady, Um, she got people even complain.
00:16:15
How did she get this big salary with ESPN? I forgot her **** name.
00:16:19
She goes on and she's like, she tries to issue in the W NBA or the MBA.
00:16:24
About all of all is like dogs.
00:16:26
You don't even support me.
00:16:27
They looked through, I think Basketball examine went through it. Katie something.
00:16:30
Katie? Katie Something.
00:16:31
I can't remember Katie something.
00:16:33
Um Katie Nolan.
00:16:35
That's the name Katie Nolan was just trying to destroy, uh, get on W MBA MBA about like, Oh, it's supposed to give it time out or her fashion wrong.
00:16:44
And she on her instagram where she's doing sports stuff.
00:16:47
She didn't cover any of the WNBA.
00:16:49
Did not have one picture w NBA on her on Katie Nolan.
00:16:53
Thank you.
00:16:54
Gregory didn't have anything that w NBA on her.
00:16:55
Instagram never had a w NBA player.
00:16:58
Didn't cover the w N B.
00:16:59
A little show. I got cancer.
00:17:01
So again, First of all, she asked privilege because again, no one knows Kim people.
00:17:05
Other writers like how did she get a million dollars from Houston or $70? Something like that.
00:17:09
It's like she came from.
00:17:10
Fox did nothing at Fox.
00:17:12
Jason Whitlock exposes.
00:17:13
Somebody used to cry during the telecast because she couldn't handle the lines because she couldn't go through her lines proper because she was flubbing her lines on a scripted show.
00:17:25
I felt like the slander man.
00:17:26
They gotta wake up.
00:17:27
MBA Gotta wake up because sports fans, when you antagonize sports fans, they'll go someplace else.
00:17:32
College football's there Now.
00:17:34
I say it's not the same because of covert.
00:17:35
They'll go someplace else. NFL.
00:17:37
Even the NFL trying to be hope they haven't gone at their own audiences like the like the MBA has.
00:17:43
So let's be smart about that.
00:17:45
But let zero sum or more than us.
00:17:47
Ah, Mari, Start of my joining the Brooklyn Nets.
00:17:51
This is gonna be an issue.
00:17:54
This is gonna be issue now.
00:17:56
Ah, Mars.
00:17:57
Start of my I think, one of the most explosive, most fun to watch.
00:18:01
Probably maybe top 20 top 25 power, Forward of all time.
00:18:07
You watch those sons years.
00:18:08
I mean, him and a Mari.
00:18:10
Then, of course, him and Nash.
00:18:11
I mean, they just had a great great chemistry.
00:18:14
Him National Johnson Uh oh, my gosh.
00:18:17
Wanna lose all the names that Shawn Marion, Uh, Joe Johnson got traded, but when he left, right, Because he's like, what? Raja Bell? The big French.
00:18:28
Do I always forget this dude's name for some reason? Oh, my gosh.
00:18:30
Big friends to play like 69 Could play power forward.
00:18:33
Could play point guard and stuff.
00:18:35
Why am I lose these guys? I came over March.
00:18:37
I might.
00:18:38
One of the best players of all one of the best.
00:18:40
Powerful Stop 20.
00:18:41
You want to see a powerful of all time go into that next team working tomorrow? Sidelines a man's man, right? He's calm.
00:18:49
Alfa, right often what we see Hey, has knowledge of self found his Jewish heritage.
00:18:56
Screw to that.
00:18:58
I don't think he's gonna fill the team with a guy like, uh, let me say, is not gonna feel a team like that.
00:19:05
I just don't see that coaching staff for the next being off any decent effect on that team board idea.
00:19:13
Thank you.
00:19:14
The big Well, miss Take. Thank you, man.
00:19:17
I don't know why I'm sure I was gonna always forget Boris Diaz.
00:19:20
Anything that team will not succeed deep Man.
00:19:24
I think it's gonna be an issue.
00:19:26
First of all, Spencer Dinwiddie again, By the way, Go check out Big Freeze on SportsCastr.
00:19:31
I did a show with him.
00:19:32
Some other dudes I did with the Mac who doesn't have a channel.
00:19:35
You guys didn't get the channels because they knowledgeable guys in basketball.
00:19:38
Woody Mac Woodside big on Twitter.
00:19:41
So go, go see them, but going support a big freeze E uncle frizzy on a SportsCastr.
00:19:47
Yeah, we had We had a really good discussion, ongoing discussion about building the construction of the team.
00:19:52
Uh, and we should talk about trying to get special, because again, as much has been spent.
00:19:57
That was a clown Regards always comes about the Knicks.
00:20:00
Delusional comments about the Knicks trying to make Brooklyn like it's just woke thing when I lived in that area for I don't know how many years and no one cares about that area whatsoever.
00:20:10
Sensitivity is a talented player, And when Spencer duty, when Kyrie Irving went down, sensitivity came in. He did an admirable job.
00:20:16
He looked like expensive dignity of old and sensitive.
00:20:19
He's not going to survive on the team now he left, he left Roc Nation.
00:20:22
I believe now he's gonna represent himself.
00:20:24
Good luck to you. Hey, get more money.
00:20:26
Don't give those fees up. If you can negotiate for yourself.
00:20:28
Let's be honest.
00:20:29
You leaving? ROC Nation says a lot.
00:20:30
I think you are trying to angle to leave.
00:20:32
And the funniest place I will work for you would have been the Knicks would have been the Knicks.
00:20:38
Your pride is not gonna let you go to the next now, but imagine expensive.
00:20:41
Now everybody talks about We need a point guard.
00:20:44
Get a guy like expensive them with it.
00:20:46
Completo easily.
00:20:47
Plato One.
00:20:49
Uh, guys came up from the drug grudges or drugs.
00:20:52
Excuse me of, uh the pistons was really nothing for what, three or four years with the Pistons? Guy comes in.
00:20:57
Let me just look at some of his stats.
00:20:59
Uh, I believe his first year with the next team in the, uh, chip not changed in the time of the playoffs.
00:21:08
If he's like one of the best point guards against the pick in the pick off the pick and roll. Excuse me.
00:21:14
Um, this is a guy in Spencer Dinwiddie who come into his own.
00:21:18
This guy averaged 20 points, 20.
00:21:20
6 points last year.
00:21:21
6.
00:21:22
8 Assists.
00:21:23
3.
00:21:25
5 rebounds.
00:21:26
41.
00:21:27
5% from the field on Lee, 30.8% from three, I think. Three point percentage.
00:21:29
77.
00:21:30
8% from 33 point line.
00:21:32
This is a guy that I think could have grown, Uh, 3% sucks.
00:21:36
Really had a good year.
00:21:37
Actually, that year with Brooklyn, the year with Brooklyn, where he broke out.
00:21:43
It was weird.
00:21:44
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.
00:21:45
Hold on the come on.
00:21:47
First sports reference.
00:21:49
Uta broke up with Brooklyn.
00:21:50
He he actually I was 37.
00:21:51
6 points, but since his attempt to one up, his percentage went down.
00:21:55
So that's definitely a present. Improved.
00:21:57
But you've seen it.
00:21:59
You've seen Spencer didn't come in and he could be a point guard, even if we would have got the guy like coming in, which will be hard if you bring this visibility.
00:22:04
But that's at least a guy that can play the point guard position.
00:22:08
Maybe switch to the to be more of a slasher.
00:22:10
Loves to play out where he gets that pick and roll and and gets deeper into the paint or deeper into the mid range.
00:22:17
Right.
00:22:18
Um, he's not gonna fit with Kyrie.
00:22:21
So, Omar side of my What is, um, our side? Who's gonna teach? Where is he gonna be? Impart his wisdom.
00:22:27
Katie's and play like Katie thinks that he's He's above the system Now he spends two years or 3 11 years with the Warriors.
00:22:33
He's good.
00:22:34
Now he don't need instruction from your Mari Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving thinks he's the greatest player coach of all time.
00:22:40
This guy couldn't make that Celtics team home despite the fact that he was a better player than Kevin Walker.
00:22:46
Better players in the world can make.
00:22:47
Cannot make us that that that Celtics team go.
00:22:52
It's gonna be a disaster with Amar E.
00:22:54
Stoudemire.
00:22:55
Man and I like them are side, But I think it has the right temperament.
00:22:57
I think that if I wish I was on a better coaching staff, I wish that Amar Steinmeier can actually get true.
00:23:05
Uh, nds says Guillermo spreading gossip from yesterday.
00:23:08
Uh, yeah, he did have a better person for the Knicks.
00:23:11
He expensively has killed the Knicks A times? Um, yeah.
00:23:16
Especially again.
00:23:17
He can't use a PG, but again, especially, has come in and play the point guard role.
00:23:20
He's been fairly good coming in and playing for Cairo entirely.
00:23:23
Got hurt last year, so we'll see my that Amar E. Stoudemire.
00:23:30
That's election, man.
00:23:31
I just don't see that that that combination work. Oh, crap.
00:23:35
Senator, hopefully wasn't here.
00:23:36
This whole times. I'll be embarrassing.
00:23:38
Hope that wasn't ignoring, but sorry.
00:23:40
Is this waxing poetic about on Mars? I admire, Uh, listen, I'm just a woman e What's going on? I said no.
00:23:48
I just got in.
00:23:49
I just got in.
00:23:50
And I heard you talking about saying something about tomorrow.
00:23:52
I didn't hear the whole thing.
00:23:53
I just got in. Yeah.
00:23:54
Yeah.
00:23:55
First and foremost.
00:23:56
Sim just had, uh, coaches corner Mitchell Robinson.
00:23:59
Everyone's favorite nicked either hate or love.
00:24:01
Uh, take that out on SportsCastr.
00:24:04
Yeah, you might be surprised.
00:24:07
You might be surprised.
00:24:08
I know people think I'm gonna hate on Mitch, but well, we all we all know whose name is holy favorite players are is definitely Julius Randle.
00:24:16
Uh, Kevin Knox was the only guys and since book it is definitely frank.
00:24:22
Frank, Frank.
00:24:23
Definitely frank it things the same sin.
00:24:28
That said Knox is good, but Mr Robinson or not, give boxing champ it.
00:24:33
Mr Robson.
00:24:34
After last year, I take out of the season.
00:24:36
The last year, Mr Robinson, we have 178 blocks, whatever.
00:24:39
Which I think is more impressive than the 74% from the field.
00:24:43
Just write the basket Sin was making You gotta get another Senate, man.
00:24:47
You just get ready, man.
00:24:48
Bob, What does not slide? Mr Knox? Who go? I said that I never said that.
00:24:55
I said, Send knocks to the Geely.
00:24:56
You could go back and check it.
00:24:59
I said, send that man to the G lead because he's lost his confidence.
00:25:04
But I still didn't think that Mitch Robinson was ready to start last year, and I think I was proved correct.
00:25:10
He should be ready to start this year.
00:25:14
We'll put like this, his agent said.
00:25:16
Uh, he's gonna prove more than just being a lot of artists and that so two years of Instagram some God Shammgod three pointers against obstructing two years.
00:25:28
Mitchell Robinson better take more.
00:25:29
I think the five shots his last season.
00:25:32
So you gotta take more.
00:25:33
You gotta You gotta show me something.
00:25:34
You know? I don't need him, Thio.
00:25:37
I don't need Mitch Robinson to prove that he could dribble.
00:25:39
That's that's not what we needed to prove right now.
00:25:42
Like in the in the show when we talked about this offense, you know, it was basically he's gotta work on his form a little bit because it's a little bit funny.
00:25:55
Like if you look at the show when we break it down, he he basically takes in.
00:26:00
He brings, he's got his elbow there, but then his arm comes over like, bends over this way, Then he shoots this way.
00:26:10
Mhm.
00:26:11
Right, Which obviously is gonna make the ball, Maybe fly funny sometimes, you know, So I think he's gotta work on that.
00:26:19
I think in that mid range areas gotta work on getting the ball, being in triple threat, right and having a good, strong stance, you know, protecting the ball, and then obviously the mid range shot, you know? I mean, I think like for a summer, you know, we see all those videos of him dribbling and stuff I think that's most of him just playing around with his friends.
00:26:40
E don't know if that's what they're working on.
00:26:43
I doubt it.
00:26:44
I think that's just been playing around with his friends, having a good time.
00:26:46
But I think those few things is what he needs to work on and then come in, take baby steps.
00:26:52
I don't need to see him.
00:26:53
I mean, obviously there's gonna be times when he would be a release valve, you know? He might have to dribble it up.
00:26:58
You know, there's some pressure on the guards, you know? He gets the rebound, this impression on the guards.
00:27:02
He might have to take a few dribbles to break the press and then, you know, get the ball out.
00:27:07
Um, but I don't need to see him trying to get out on the perimeter and do all these kind of moves because he's not ready for that yet.
00:27:14
E was watching, uh, shout out to whose mark? Because he put me on to him.
00:27:19
But I was watching Jalen Smith from Maryland, and one thing about Geno Smith.
00:27:24
I love that he has that move where he could step like he sets that spin was so beautiful and it literally takes one or two dribbles, right? And we've seen Mr Robinson police in the practices where, you know, a literally a jab step with the left.
00:27:39
So then going spin I mean, James Smith does it so well and absolutely again you don't have to sit there and dribble and Shammgod and you know all this crap.
00:27:49
You know, it's literally Ah, good set up.
00:27:52
You set the foot Once the guy you see him kind of commit Thio Thio his left step, your left foot Nice spin around right at the rim.
00:28:00
If he recovers, you just fake it.
00:28:02
You're tall enough and go right back up.
00:28:04
And I think you said it's simple moves like you watch some of the best players.
00:28:08
I mean, say what you want about shock because Jack had power but shocked at some of the best footwork in the N B A.
00:28:14
And Shock wasn't coming from the three point line outside that one All Star game.
00:28:17
He was joking around, but he wasn't doing all this stuff like at the basket was hey, catch the ball through the field where the defenders plan, Then you make the spindle and then you explode.
00:28:29
And obviously Miss Robinson is not shot, but one or two spin moves for God so tall, so long, who's going to get filed? I mean, it's just amazing, I think.
00:28:42
I don't know if you wanna go check the episode, because I just said that something had some work to do.
00:28:46
But I hope you guys ****yze like at least a shot that he did make, which was remember one in Atlanta.
00:28:51
He made the foul line on.
00:28:53
Then there was one with the Knicks were playing at home.
00:28:55
I can't remember which team and I think with the Did you guys like Do you guys like a hitching a shot where, like, he kind of like something? Well, first of all, he rushes it because I think he's just nervous.
00:29:05
Um, but there's like he kind of was like and I know what you tell me what the curve, I guess the arm.
00:29:10
But he hitches like I don't know, like like I don't know.
00:29:14
I was like, kind of like to get ready and it's not nice and compact.
00:29:18
It's not, you know, it's kind of what your shoes like you don't want as much like obviously usually your legs to create the energy to jump right, You have to go out your apex.
00:29:28
But once you at your apex, you don't like you're not moving your body and doing, you know, all this wild jazz, you're basically nice and compact and your arm everything.
00:29:37
So it's you try to repeat the angle.
00:29:39
And with Mitch, at least when I sold the Hawks, even though you made the shot when he took the shot, the foul line, you know, I mean, it was just It was like it was ugly.
00:29:47
But then you see what the fire line is.
00:29:48
Obviously, is a cool compact.
00:29:51
It's a nice, you know.
00:29:52
I mean, I know he says a little bit the former's little message, but at least you know that weird kitsch.
00:29:58
Yeah.
00:29:59
I mean, you guys remember Charles Hayes from the Rockets? Used to have that weird.
00:30:02
They hold up the foul line and then trying to throw it in and people would get caught up.
00:30:05
It's not like that, so yeah.
00:30:08
Yeah, So I wasn't able Toe was trying to find those shots.
00:30:13
I wasn't able to find those shots But I did.
00:30:18
If you hopefully Aiken, you'll be able to see this.
00:30:21
Let me know if you could see this.
00:30:22
Um, are you able to see Are you able to see that? Okay, right.
00:30:29
So if you look so look at this.
00:30:31
Look at his elbow and then looked away.
00:30:33
Look at the way his arm, like Bend's mhm, right? So it's on, like, bends over in front of his face before he lets the ball go, you know? And maybe that's where Maybe that's where it hitches.
00:30:50
Coming in.
00:30:51
I mean, has a good flick with his wrist and everything, but his arm just kind of bends over in front of his face on and it makes the ball, I think, makes the ball.
00:31:01
Now curve out a couple of these shots, uh, in his video.
00:31:05
The ball curved out and hit the front of the rim.
00:31:07
Even though he's on this side off the rim, it curves out, hits the front of the room because off where he is releasing the ball and then, you know, he kind of, um you know, he kind of flips the ball this way, you know, a little bit when it when it when he shoots so e anybody kind of like curls because I see because at least he has.
00:31:34
So the form of he's guiding the ball correctly write with his left, right? He's kind of covering it.
00:31:39
So it's kind of like a wall.
00:31:40
I guess you want him to do more of that.
00:31:42
But I think I don't know.
00:31:44
I was somebody could break this down scientifically because I don't know it.
00:31:47
But I think with certain people, right, basically how the joints are and we're the strength and all that stuff comes into play.
00:31:54
I think some people like you know, obviously must remember if he if he if someone got him to do that right, he will slowly started like it's like the same thing.
00:32:01
Alonso, right? Lonzo used to do that.
00:32:03
E don't know what the hell that was, but you know, and he starts to shoot him or straight.
00:32:07
I think with him I would love him to get a train who could changes must remember.
00:32:11
But I think what certain place that this thing, like sometimes their release points to get strength somewhere, right? I know people to shoot like like from the hair, but they will give you 50 like shooting like from here.
00:32:22
And I'm like, How the hell like the balls? Not like How do you? Yeah, There are some people that shoot from the side over here.
00:32:29
Yeah, Look at the rim, This one.
00:32:31
They look at the rim here and they got the ball over here.
00:32:34
I don't know.
00:32:35
I can't shoot that way.
00:32:36
I don't know how they do it, but there's some people that do it.
00:32:37
Some people do the catapult, like Larry Bird. I mean, one of the greatest.
00:32:41
You bring that ball way back there, My point e for people, in a way.
00:32:48
And I love how they're trying to mess up the cell real quick.
00:32:51
Someone is putting up a campaign and push this dude further down.
00:32:55
Right? Because I I've watched for cell, right? And I'm like, he shot like that in college.
00:32:59
Like, why are they saying this? So someone wants him to drop someone.
00:33:03
Definitely want something to say.
00:33:05
I don't I don't see a problem with the way it shoots.
00:33:08
E don't.
00:33:09
I don't understand what people are complaining about just because the ball is a little bit ****her back here.
00:33:14
He's still up here.
00:33:15
Yeah, e.
00:33:19
So I don't understand the problem.
00:33:21
Go to this Virginia game when he dropped 27 or whatever it was he was doing at the whole game.
00:33:25
I'm like, all right? And I literally said that in the video I did.
00:33:27
I said, One of the benefits of that is that, you know, it's hard to touch.
00:33:31
It's hard to reach back there like you can't i e get the story all the time.
00:33:35
For a few times I said, My Spanish Remember my cousin, my cousin rental tell I used to to rent beast of a player.
00:33:41
But we got Molly Bob.
00:33:42
I, uh, it's too.
00:33:44
I dudes is really the only good to players over another place up One dude who looked like a roided up Jimmer Fredette was killed.
00:33:51
My cousin, uh, all over the court.
00:33:53
Now I have to play some other dude who wasn't good, wasn't athletic, but literally shot the ball here and there was he probably dropped 25.
00:34:01
There's nothing I could do.
00:34:02
I'm in his face, all that stuff, like do this.
00:34:04
I'm like I know he's gonna shoot Jack stuff and I'm like, Alright, there's no I can't do anything about that.
00:34:10
So it's a It's an advantage if you could do it.
00:34:12
But for Mitchell Robinson, I hope he's with the right people to guide him.
00:34:16
I just hate the instagram stuff because I just think that's a distraction on that goes to I guess I talked about this before, But if you give your opinion on this with your boy, uh, Michael Jordan said about the so called the so called hold on, I got the wrong article up the Instagram era off players where Let me just read the quote real quick.
00:34:40
E guess he rips social media.
00:34:42
He didn't really refuses giving his opinion.
00:34:44
But he said on a cigar aficionado, He said, Tiger Woods played at his peak somewhere toward the end of my career.
00:34:50
Then we'll change from that time frame to now, social media, Twitter and all those types of things and that has invaded the personalities and personal time of individuals is to the point where some people have been able to utilize it to the financial game and things of that nature.
00:35:04
But for someone like myself, and this is what Tiger deals with.
00:35:07
I don't know if I could have survived in the Twitter error where you don't have the privacy that you would want that you want.
00:35:12
And what seems to be very innocents can be can always be misinterpreted.
00:35:16
So how do you feel about I? I agree with him wholeheartedly.
00:35:20
Uh, I mean, I mean, I agree with him about the social media area era about him not being able to survive it.
00:35:30
E mean, just don't be on it.
00:35:32
If you just not on it, then you know you could probably survive it, right? But, you know, if you grow up in the error where you have social media, then you know you're probably gonna be on it if that's the area that you grow up in.
00:35:46
Uh, you know, e mean, social media gets a lot of people in a lot of trouble. Fairly.
00:35:53
You know, some players able to use it some not just players, but people are able to use it for their benefit.
00:35:59
Um, and I do agree, like a lot of the privacy that players have now.
00:36:08
I get well, obviously private.
00:36:11
You know, the privacy.
00:36:12
Some players, people put their own stuff out there.
00:36:15
Um, but if you're just walking down the street, someone snap a picture, any kind of picture you could be walking with your daughter and people don't know what your daughter.
00:36:24
Then they put it on social media and say you're walking with some chick or something crazy, right? I mean, and and it's got to be It's got to be nerve wracking for some of these guys because they grow up on social media so they get on social media.
00:36:42
Naturally, you're going to search your name and then you start to see all this stuff about you.
00:36:47
Good stuff, bad stuff, most.
00:36:49
For the most part, most people are gonna look and focus on those bad things that people say about him, right? And what I respond, Or maybe take it to heart Or, you know, people feel like this. People feel like that.
00:37:00
It that's yeah.
00:37:03
I mean it.
00:37:04
Zta uff.
00:37:06
It's tough because I know like I didn't grow up with social media when I was a teenager.
00:37:13
But as a started to come in right in my mind set, I was like you worried about what somebody said on my space.
00:37:22
You what this person said on this or that man.
00:37:24
It's just social media, right? But for these kids growing up, it's not just social media, it is life.
00:37:31
So yeah, you guys, when you know, you hear kids and I'm not making light of this, But when you hear like kids who committed suicide because I'm like in my head again, I grew up most of our social.
00:37:44
I remember the days you have to call somebody on the phone.
00:37:47
So, like, literally have a 500 conference like you couldn't just take somebody on.
00:37:51
Do you have kids now who unfortunately, influence that point where, you know, committed suicide because of pressures and that stuff.
00:37:57
And I'm just like in my head and I just always in my I'm just like, could you just turn it off like I mean, like, I don't understand.
00:38:03
So, you know, and Michael Jordan, this is what you know.
00:38:07
I come from because I think in regards to basketball, Michael Jordan is trying to say, but you don't want to seem like a hater, right? If you disagree, your hater, whatever I think Michael Jones trying to basically say, like during my day like basketball was everything right? Andi, Obviously, people are now people did the thing, got the chicks, whatever.
00:38:26
Cars, whatever.
00:38:27
You have fun during the all time, let's not make it seem like these guys.
00:38:30
But Michael Joe, I feel like it's like and other people said this.
00:38:34
I heard Shumpert talk about this. I've heard Stephen Jackson.
00:38:36
They're people who don't get that check.
00:38:38
They don't give a **** about practicing.
00:38:41
They don't give a **** about improving the game like they don't care, he said.
00:38:44
I forgot who it was.
00:38:45
It might have been. It might have been.
00:38:47
Stephen Jackson said, Majorities, guys, you know, like your average players, whatever they in the league, and a lot of it can be a lot better, but they just don't care like they got.
00:38:56
They got the money, they got the chicks, they got the cars, got the house.
00:38:59
They're good.
00:39:00
And the thing about Michael Jordan's that when he talks about that, then you're saying that people care more about taking this picture doing that, showing all versus okay, you're in the lead.
00:39:09
You haven't won anything, right? Okay, You got a nice contract.
00:39:12
But, you know, do you want to be great, you know? I mean, unfortunately, with Kobe retiring, you know, I think that that, you know, you see, you see little players here that I think the next type of players who might be that guys like Jason tandem.
00:39:24
I kind of see it in him.
00:39:26
Obviously, last summer.
00:39:28
Jimmy Butler, who, unfortunately, he's older.
00:39:31
I wish Jimmy Butler was with this Heat team since he got drafted.
00:39:33
I would have loved to see that.
00:39:34
But you know, guys, that Jimmy Bhullar, it's a very select few who I think that they take basketball to like it is their life.
00:39:42
Like OK, socially find whatever.
00:39:44
But I'm in the gym.
00:39:45
I'm finding ways I'm doing diets.
00:39:47
I'm doing all this stuff to get to the maximum.
00:39:49
I want that championship cause I wanna be mentioned with the greats versus I don't you know, the clicks, right? And, you know, I'm not hating on social media.
00:39:57
I just when I watch basketball, man, forget even the mix.
00:40:00
I just missed the days of yesteryear where, like yeah, I mean, you had that that passion, that fire, like people got into fights.
00:40:08
Now, obviously, we see fights for like Marcus Morris and for payment for Jae Crowder.
00:40:12
That feels a little bit different than when, Like John Starks and you and went up against the Bulls, right? It's like, you know, I mean, we're cool.
00:40:20
We call off the court like we're friends, whatever.
00:40:21
But on the court, I wanna kill you.
00:40:23
You want to kill me? Is because we all wanna be great.
00:40:26
That little intangible thing about basketball, about being one of the great that fire that burns in us.
00:40:31
And I think a lot of times Social Media's help that fire is kind of flamed out, right? You know, you're getting praise your being now the goal is being thrown everywhere.
00:40:38
Oh, you're the goal.
00:40:39
Your goal is like, you know it kind off.
00:40:42
Yeah.
00:40:44
And you know, sometimes I think, you know, like you said, that fire isn't always there.
00:40:49
These these kids play so much basketball.
00:40:52
I think it starts to the value how much they appreciate the game.
00:40:56
Because for them, there's always another game.
00:40:58
You know what I'm saying? They played from the time.
00:41:01
You know, some of these kids start playing at figuring 3 to 5 years old, like playing real intense basketball and training, right? And by the time they get into the MBA, it's like, Okay, okay.
00:41:17
Yeah, right. Yeah, OK.
00:41:18
I mean, I've been playing basketball, right? You said you do from Mount Vernon.
00:41:22
I remember the story.
00:41:23
I think you got recruited at eight.
00:41:25
So you get a by duke of somebody like they don't know what it was, but they basically making time.
00:41:32
I forgot who it was, but it's, like, eight or elementary school.
00:41:35
I'm like, you know, I agree with you.
00:41:38
You burned out, and maybe you don't wanna be a guy to carry the family.
00:41:41
And what? I'm sorry.
00:41:42
I don't remember.
00:41:43
You know, you miss.
00:41:44
And one thing, somebody saying that people want to survive.
00:41:46
Remember, Jordan basically had social media back then.
00:41:50
Because if you think about the media attention he had to go through, it was just a bad, like, literally the cameras were on him.
00:41:58
24 like paparazzi touchdown in Europe.
00:42:02
Like couldn't.
00:42:04
It was social media.
00:42:06
Every Jordan 5 a.
00:42:07
m.
00:42:08
He I saw him, you know, order.
00:42:09
Pizza is like dog.
00:42:11
What? Like the dude lips.
00:42:13
So people saying you wouldn't survive? I mean, I agree.
00:42:14
I think there's some people like Charles Barkley would have been Probably, uh, Charles Barkley.
00:42:24
Hey, would have been on social media.
00:42:27
I mean, he would have got in trouble.
00:42:28
E no, he would.
00:42:29
He would have got in trouble.
00:42:30
Big time on social media.
00:42:32
Oh, my gosh.
00:42:34
But, uh, another thing that might be I think you'd like Thio talk about how he talked about the competitive balance in the N B A.
00:42:43
He said the same cigar aficionado.
00:42:45
Ah, show.
00:42:46
He said, I think you want to be able to have competitive balance in that we join and say on if a player is able to choose determine what team he wants to play for, that you're gonna have some town discrepancy in the league.
00:42:57
So if everybody wants to go to Chicago and all the best players gonna be in Chicago, you start to see a little bit of it.
00:43:02
Now we're all the stars try to get together on the same team, but I think is going to hurt.
00:43:08
It is going to start to hurt the overall aspect of the league.
00:43:10
From a competitive standpoint, only one or two teams will be great and the other Tony will be garbage.
00:43:15
How do you feel about that? I agree with him, e I agree with.
00:43:19
I just don't know if you can stop it.
00:43:22
I don't know how you stop it from happening, but I definitely agree with him.
00:43:26
Uh, and a lot of that, too, comes from au summer basketball.
00:43:33
You know, like like, if you if you're familiar with the au culture, um, you know, you could have one player that's on a team, and then, you know, he wants his friends to come over and the coaches like, Well, I really want this player, okay? And let his buddy come on to the team because I want this guy, or if you've got a group of four or five players, that's really good, and you know that they're all friends there, traveled to team the team together.
00:43:57
You know what I'm saying? And if they don't end up liking this team, they'll move to this team.
00:44:01
They'll move to that team.
00:44:03
Um, I think that coaches moved right into the MBA guys, just, you know, you know, these are my friends, and we're gonna play on the same team together, and you know they get happy.
00:44:17
I mean, you know, LeBron James basically kind of started that culture in the MBA, right? And if you look, if you pay attention to, you know, his high school career, Hey, had a AU team that, you know, they used to go travel, you know, all over the place and play that entire AU team.
00:44:39
Or I don't know if the entire team but most of those guys end up playing for his high school.
00:44:45
Like they took that team and started playing for that high school that high school wasn't, um what's the name of the high school now? Irish? The, uh, all right.
00:44:55
I can't think of the name, but I e yeah, yeah, yeah, e something, but But they weren't powerhouse school.
00:45:07
Oh, right.
00:45:09
They weren't They weren't a powerhouse school.
00:45:12
And they're not a powerhouse school.
00:45:13
Now, ST ST Vincent. Yeah.
00:45:16
Yeah, they want a powerhouse school.
00:45:20
But that AU team went and played for that school and how you know, whatever they did is a private school, so they could let them in, however they want to.
00:45:28
Right? And then all of a sudden, that school became ah, powerhouse school for the time that LeBron James was there, Right? And then, you know, obviously, you know, after high school, you get into college.
00:45:39
There's not much you can do about, you know, having your guys come with you.
00:45:43
But then in the n b A, he's like, I want to play with my friends and my buddies, you know, s so I think that, you know, kind of passes on to the n b.
00:45:55
A.
00:45:56
Not every player is gonna have the power to be able to do that, but a lot of players will.
00:45:59
Not a lot.
00:46:00
Some players will some players to your best players.
00:46:02
They're gonna have the power to be able to team up if they want to.
00:46:06
I think the best way.
00:46:07
And I know Andy shout to Andy, uh, people to push channel sportscast.
00:46:12
Andy and we talked about this.
00:46:14
I appreciate talking about this as well.
00:46:16
I think I brought us up with you before, and I think that one way to increase parity is through that, making it so that the odds of flip right teams nine through whatever they have a higher chance of getting them will pick.
00:46:28
Right? So you're gonna have teams.
00:46:30
I think somebody seems like kind of lazy.
00:46:32
They just sit back like, we'll get a trade, y'all.
00:46:34
Next year, he'll be outdraw.
00:46:35
You get some of these thes teams who are lazy or these owners who are kind of lazy and just they just want to draw for the for the night.
00:46:43
You know, they just want somebody to bring in some viewership.
00:46:46
No, they Bradley Bill Bradley.
00:46:48
Bill's gonna play for tonight.
00:46:49
We don't care about the playoffs.
00:46:50
Um, I think if you can get it so that you have people competing for that number one spot on you also have teams who might be a little bit strategic.
00:46:59
Might played out where it's like begin the eight seed, But we're gonna get blown out versus we go with the ninth seed.
00:47:04
We don't wanna get a play off, but we get a higher draft pick or higher odds to get like a kid coming in, you know, I mean, you can figure out later, but I think if you could do something where you get these lower ranked teams out, you've got one that improved, uh, improves the viewership right now because you're gonna see somebody scrap.
00:47:22
Your team's going all out and trying toe beat each other, right? You know, somebody's end of season games.
00:47:27
They're gonna be a lot more competitive, right? You know, which can the Knicks at number 10 can they beat the number 90? Whatever.
00:47:33
Try to get a guy like a Cunningham or Barnes or, uh, something like that on.
00:47:39
I think that obviously, if you could bring those stars to some of these teams that just miss it because think about this, if there's a team that just missing it came in at night.
00:47:45
So the next got the ninth spot in a 10 spot, they get a kid coming in.
00:47:48
Get a guy like New York is not a good example.
00:47:50
Using New York, let me use, Let me say, like or let me say, Charlotte Hornets, they come in, they compete.
00:47:57
Jordan, you know, hires proper basketball people, right? Who can actually draft players develop and they just missed right.
00:48:03
You get a night spot now they get a guy like a Cunningham.
00:48:06
Cunningham comes situation where is not as oh man, this team sucks.
00:48:10
I'm gonna leave here as soon as I can, Okay? there's something is something brewing here.
00:48:14
I like this Bob, so I just think that it improves the or increases.
00:48:19
The incentive improves incentive for some of these crappy teams to do better, right? And so you know and again when it comes back to what I talk about with coaching and why seems they hire guys like Look what's happening next we get to the Nets, they're hiring guys like Steve Nash and stuff, you know, higher actual good battle people.
00:48:37
Put more evidence to improve your foreign office and make sure that, you know is not just your friends.
00:48:41
Your brand is actually good coaches who could lift up your team.
00:48:45
So I think that's one way you could improve the so called parity.
00:48:48
Now, how will it fly with the C B A.
00:48:51
They might have some leverage because the MBA has lost what they're down 70% in ratings, 67% rating. Something like that.
00:48:57
So I think, to spur up viewership, especially with the style of play.
00:49:02
And if you get more parity over time, next year's draft, these next few drafts of honey Basil, these guys, you have some talented kids coming out if you can somehow go back to C B A and sell it, I think the teams might be the teams have you before that the players might push back.
00:49:17
I'm trying to figure out why they were pushed back.
00:49:20
Maybe maybe might feel like, Oh, you're trapping me.
00:49:23
But again, if it's the better teams, they're getting somebody to high draft picks. It might make it out of trapping.
00:49:27
Teams might not like it, but right, that's what What would make it tough, because the bad teams then might always stay bad.
00:49:37
But what if they did? I think we talked about this before, right? What if they had for those teams that didn't make the playoffs, they had some kind of tournament.
00:49:45
It would increase viewership.
00:49:47
So they had, you know, one end of the year tournament before the playoffs start, right? There's, You know, before the playoffs start, maybe you take and you say, OK, we're gonna take a week off.
00:49:59
Let the teams who were in the MBA playoffs prepare, get some rest and prepare for the playoffs right instead of just starting right at.
00:50:08
You know, sometimes you get a team that on Friday they had toe play a team to get into the playoffs.
00:50:15
And then on Monday, the playoff game starts. Or Sunday.
00:50:19
Their playoff game starts, right? What they say.
00:50:22
Okay, we're gonna give a week, let those guys rest up a little bit, get prepared for the playoffs.
00:50:27
And during that week, the teams that didn't make the playoffs, we're gonna have a tournament that decides some seating, right? And maybe you have, Maybe you say your top.
00:50:39
You look at who has what draft picks and your top five teams.
00:50:43
They're going to be a top five minute lottery.
00:50:45
Maybe you say your top 10 teams.
00:50:47
I don't know how many how many teams don't make the playoffs.
00:50:50
Six is how many teams have made 30 30.
00:50:55
So there's 10 teams 16.
00:50:58
There's 30 teams, so there's 14 teams that don't make the playoffs, right? So maybe if you did like, Okay, you know you got your top seven or your top six or top five or six, right that you know they're gonna get seated.
00:51:13
12345 However, that works out.
00:51:15
And then all the other teams, they they go into a little playoff format themselves to see who's going to get picks.
00:51:25
789 10 11 12 you know and so on or something like that, I don't know.
00:51:31
You know, you know that way your worst teams still get the chance to get the best players in the draft.
00:51:36
But then those other teams, you know, they gotta you know, they go into a little tournament to decide whether or not they're going to get some of those other draft picks.
00:51:46
So, so, so, so, so so, so the best teams.
00:51:51
So which ones get the best best draft picks? So so your your teams with the worst, let's just say, let me see if there's 14 teams that don't make the playoffs, uh, you know, to try to make it.
00:52:05
Even so, your top six teams your worst six teams, get the top six picks automatically.
00:52:15
They're not even in that little playoff format.
00:52:17
They automatically get the top six picks.
00:52:19
The lottery will determine which you know what number they are and then pick seven through whatever.
00:52:27
Though the remainder of those teams you know the remainder of those teams going toe a playoff like a little playoff format and then you have your playoff teams, I guess you know you would give them.
00:52:40
I don't know.
00:52:41
I guess it would be pretty complicated, right? Your playoff teams, you know, they'd have They'd have picked 16 through 30.
00:52:51
And however they will see that they would have picked 16 to 30.
00:52:54
Then those middle from pick seven through pick 15.
00:53:00
They kind of have a little playoff to decide who's gonna get what? Yeah, or something like that.
00:53:07
E, I want that draft.
00:53:09
I want that first top draft it to be attainable because you don't want it.
00:53:15
Where? Because if you don't have a tournament, some of those middling the bad teams they may have been, like, screw it.
00:53:24
I was gonna be, you know, whatever.
00:53:25
Like I play this tournament.
00:53:26
I'm gonna get the eighth pick if I don't play this time.
00:53:28
I was trying to get the eighth pick anyway, versus if you incentivize.
00:53:31
And now it's like, Okay, this team is garb is not good.
00:53:36
We get that top draft pick, you gotta play.
00:53:38
It's such and such team.
00:53:39
Um, I just think that incentive will change how some of these terrible teams operate now to Joshua Smalls.
00:53:47
He broke two things that disagree one, he said, that the ratings would go certain, literally the end of thes crap. Teams play.
00:53:54
No one's watching them.
00:53:55
No one cares Every the players have set.
00:53:58
No one's watching the Knicks play the Pistons at the end of season, uh, to close it out of the mix.
00:54:03
But if ever been censored to say, Hey, whichever team comes in whatever, like you get better odds to get the number one draft pick despite the fact that you weren't the worst team, whatever.
00:54:13
The next night, examples used the worst thing, but the Knicks was somewhere middling, and they could compete for those those what's in? And you're talking about this tournament or even just without saying where it's, like, 90 or whatever.
00:54:23
Trust me, you're gonna get people watching it because everybody wants to.
00:54:25
Everybody wants to see their team get the next kid coming in.
00:54:28
Every I want to see their team gets the next you know, so called a mellow Barnes.
00:54:31
What we want to say Jalen Greene and Monte based, who's gonna get Nick's gonna get? Trust me a lot of basketball heads, you go on Twitter so to the next Twitter.
00:54:40
Very, very, uh, energetic.
00:54:44
People are Knicks fans on Twitter.
00:54:45
Trust me, they will.
00:54:47
All those people will watch.
00:54:48
Viewership will stay strong with some of these crap your teams on, he said of Ah, he said something else about he said, like, Oh, some I don't agree because given a participation trophy.
00:54:58
But if you're incentivized teams to fight to get better draft picks, how is that a participation trophy? Exactly Getting a draft pick anyway, You're fighting for traffic.
00:55:09
You're not fighting to say, Hey, I got a trophy.
00:55:12
It's like, not and it's not again.
00:55:14
It's not as if teams you want to so that teams that are competing for this, right, um, when they're competing for this, they're not gonna sit there.
00:55:22
Obviously, if you had, you know, certain when people talk about the process, right? Literally Everyone knew the sixties were tanking for how many years, right? It was ugly basketball.
00:55:32
They were legit.
00:55:33
Tanking for how many years until they gotta be.
00:55:35
No, no, no, no, no.
00:55:37
No whales.
00:55:38
That came out today.
00:55:39
And Ben Simmons, right? How about okay? We're fighting for this.
00:55:44
We get out our star he elevates us now we're in the playoffs now.
00:55:48
Other players want to come and play this team that won.
00:55:51
You might have a team that sucked, but the coaching came in.
00:55:54
They change the culture.
00:55:56
They change, the style of players improved.
00:55:57
Now you get a kid coming here.
00:55:58
You go into next season, you get ah, Bradley, Bill, whoever.
00:56:00
I'm just making up names to play alongside this guy.
00:56:03
That team is no longer going to sit there trying to tank to get another draft.
00:56:07
It would be stupid.
00:56:08
Be weird.
00:56:09
You have always times that players now contribute.
00:56:11
Now they're gonna obvious.
00:56:12
Now that team might get to the playoffs, right? And then think about this.
00:56:15
The team that was eight.
00:56:17
They come down into the pool to compete all this, you're gonna have good basketball.
00:56:21
Imagine if remember the Heat usedto when they lost out in the playoffs by a little like one game when they had, like, dr years before.
00:56:27
But looking at a bunch of decent players driving like James Johnson, they weren't great, right? That team, they just missed it.
00:56:34
Now they're competing Now, The team that's playing for that night spot or whatever to get the top draft pick.
00:56:38
They come in next year together.
00:56:39
Kid coming here.
00:56:40
My money.
00:56:41
What? Maybe that team You're not gonna get a bunch of players teams playing bad basketball to get a top traffic.
00:56:47
You're gonna get good basketball.
00:56:48
Trust me, it's going to sustain people like I wanna watch this.
00:56:51
This is is like is like a nightie on steroids That makes any sense.
00:56:55
So I don't know what people, if you don't like the idea, that's fine.
00:56:58
But I think, uh, the only thing that I'm concerned about is, you know, your bottom teams it's gonna be It might make it hard for me to get talent in the draft, right? Because, you know, like, look at the West, you know, you might have teams that are really good, really, really good.
00:57:18
Don't make the playoffs right.
00:57:21
And then they end up getting the number one pick right, because they they're a good team anyway, you know? I mean, so that that's the only thing that would make me a little nervous about it.
00:57:33
And you do.
00:57:34
Good point.
00:57:35
Uh, you know, why would replacement level players Uh, yeah, that's another thing.
00:57:42
Why would they? Why would those players play for their replacement? E? I mean, but the thing is, you're getting paid to play, and you know why? You know why they would play? I mean, it would put them in a tough situation, right? But I think it would look poorly upon them toe other free agents thio other teams.
00:58:08
If they're going to become a free agent, if they don't play, you know, if they don't actually go out there and play basketball, teams are gonna look and say, You know what? You know this guy, This this guy's not You don't want to go around.
00:58:21
Yeah, yeah.
00:58:22
We don't want this guy around.
00:58:23
You have them in the tournament again, You say, Why would a like some just said, you know, maybe regular season, blah, blah.
00:58:31
But again, we've seen in the bubble where you have bubble stars who like Who is this guy? Where the hell he comes up next team.
00:58:39
I know that this team got destroyed, but they literally I don't know how many guys were, like, averaging double digits in a bubble.
00:58:45
And I was like, Who the hell are any of these guys like I know guys, before, they didn't have Kyrie or Katie didn't have did with.
00:58:51
So I think it could actually work.
00:58:54
Yeah, and then and then, you know, give them, You know, they're they're playing a few extra games.
00:59:03
Give them some extra money.
00:59:05
Yeah, right.
00:59:07
Give him a little bit of extra money for playing, you know? And then, you know, it's like you got the NC double A and then you got the What's the other one? N i t the n i t.
00:59:18
Right, You know, not in the tournament, guys, but it actually means something, but it means something to those people who are playing.
00:59:25
It means something, you know, I mean, and And if you do that kind of incentive where you say, hey, you know what? They didn't make the big time, but they're playing for, you know, they're playing for your position or whatever they're playing for, you know? And then you get to see how some of these guys it might help some of these guys.
00:59:41
You get to see how they perform in pressure situations with some of these guys who's, you know, never been in the playoffs, right? You say Well, you know what? They were in a playoff type situation and they performed well, you know? And so you might decide, You know, we'll keep this guy or we won't keep this guy because we don't think he could perform well or whatever, So e think that's something that's interesting, man.
01:00:04
If a guy like and I know people don't like him have a guy like Alfred Pain, right? So the Knicks were fighting for that spot.
01:00:09
A guy like hell for pain have a terrible season, comes in that bubble, right that people say, Why would you play for we'll put like this? You're probably not gonna get a good deal from another team anyway, with your bad played in the regular season, if you come in for the next 23 weeks, whatever and ball out, the team might look at you in a different lines.
01:00:27
Say, like some just said, Hey, let's keep him.
01:00:29
Let's resign him versus you go to another team that may may not fit.
01:00:33
So I think it could work, man, on those young teams, those younger teams, you give them a chance to like we always talk about with tanking right you don't always prepare, you know, because you're you're tanking.
01:00:47
You're losing games so you don't prepare you don't take it seriously or you know what is gonna force teams to To take things seriously.
01:00:54
When you get to that little tournament to say, You know what, that's prepared.
01:00:57
We want a chance to get this, whatever draft pick, what I'm saying. So we need to prepare.
01:01:05
We need to prepare for it.
01:01:06
I mean, it does create ah conundrum or whatever for a conundrum for, uh, those players who might be on the way out.
01:01:16
That's That's the lead.
01:01:18
It was probably on the way out anyway.
01:01:21
Exactly.
01:01:24
You know, I mean, I mean, think about it, isn't it that way now, at the end of the season, right when they say, Oh, yeah, these guys, these guys air tanking, You know what I'm saying? And you know, you got players playing and you know they're playing out the rest of the season knowing that a draft pick may come in and replace them, right? Yeah, you know, I mean, I mean, I guess I guess now you know you can have some teams that say, Well, we're gonna win this game on purpose or something like that.
01:01:52
But, I mean, players go out there and they play.
01:01:55
I think most of the players would want to know they wouldn't even be thinking probably about the draft pick, right? They'd be like, Yo, let's let's go out.
01:02:02
Let's try toe, win this, You know, give it you get the team gets an incentive.
01:02:06
But you got to get the players some kind of incentive as well.
01:02:09
All right? Yeah.
01:02:11
So I don't know, Andy.
01:02:12
What do you think, bro? I think money would make everything work.
01:02:16
Just a tip like $30,000 tip for each way.
01:02:22
And pro.
01:02:23
They're gonna be playing for each every 82 games.
01:02:26
Just Nashua.
01:02:28
You know, I'm sorry, man.
01:02:31
I don't trust anything with this.
01:02:32
This new draft, uh, the way the probabilities and stuff works, man, I You know, I think there's another way to n b.
01:02:40
A.
01:02:41
Could just do a black box kind of situation where they can have their teams that they want, um, Thio get top drive picks, because again, I remember 2012 how Republicans got the draft pick because they were what they were owned by the MBA is just kind of wearing in Cleveland.
01:02:55
Got all those first round draft picks after LeBron left.
01:02:58
Make it make it so It's a little bit more transparent, you know? I mean, I don't really like how.
01:03:04
It's just weird, like the Knicks suck last year.
01:03:07
And then it's like what? The Pelicans got the number one pick and then the Grizzlies got that.
01:03:11
And they're both better than the Knicks.
01:03:12
So it's like, Yeah, I mean, you can't suck enough.
01:03:16
I mean, just be a Knick fan.
01:03:17
We can't suck enough together top draft pick, and it's like we're never We haven't been good enough to do anything because our team construction.
01:03:23
So give me something that provides me more transparency That makes a little bit more fair in my eyes.
01:03:29
Obviously, MBA, they wanna do their things to get people in or to certain teams.
01:03:34
But just give me, give me competition.
01:03:36
Give me something more transparent than the crap they're doing.
01:03:40
Where I gotta watch some little short kid from Cleveland pick up.
01:03:44
Was it two or three years in a row? They got the first round.
01:03:46
The first pick, like come on.
01:03:47
Dogs like they had, like, 4444 picks in, like, six years. Probably.
01:03:54
Yeah, I think that would make any.
01:03:57
Uh, yeah.
01:03:59
Well, what you guys didn't say about this, you know, like for the teams that don't make the playoffs, that they're gonna play games, it's gonna still bring crowds, revenue and stuff like that.
01:04:12
And now the no, the 14 teams, They go home and you know, their fan bases.
01:04:20
They have to watch other teams play right.
01:04:22
Meanwhile, you could still have them watching games, For example.
01:04:26
For me, I never watched it like the first round of the playoffs.
01:04:30
I just skip it.
01:04:31
I just have that mourning period that my Knicks are not playing the playoffs.
01:04:35
So you know, I don't watch basketball then, but you know, later in the playoffs are probably watch a couple of games.
01:04:41
But if the Knicks would be playing even for a draft pick for whatever right, I will probably watching those games.
01:04:48
So you know, and that's probably most of the fans.
01:04:51
You know that.
01:04:53
You know, when their team goes out, they basically, you know, stop watching and stuff like that, that that's That's for the Cairo guys that also spend money on jerseys, on gear and on everything.
01:05:06
So, no, that would be a huge percentage wise.
01:05:09
It would be a huge no proportion of revenue if they would play, even for draft picks after the season, Right? So, yeah, I just don't understand.
01:05:21
Like, I think it e you have some owners who were just lazy and but pushed back against us.
01:05:26
But for the most part, incoming players coming in.
01:05:30
I mean, if you don't want these guys going, and every time they get drafted by Indiana, whatever they want to leave to go to L.
01:05:36
A or, you know, play with LeBron e, make it so that parody is increased and you'll sleep.
01:05:42
You're waking some of these owners who hide their friends and don't care to come in 15 games below 500.
01:05:49
Um, you awaken some of these these guys, so I think it's a good idea.
01:05:53
I think so.
01:05:55
I'm gonna ask Joshua.
01:05:56
What is the He said This is the media against nixed an MBA against Knicks rhetoric that I hate.
01:06:03
What did we say about what? What did we say anything about being against the Knicks were talking about all teams.
01:06:12
Oh, I think he's just e mean in this set up.
01:06:17
The Knicks wouldn't even Probably they probably lose.
01:06:22
It is right.
01:06:25
I don't know what.
01:06:26
I don't know what Josh is talking about.
01:06:28
So I guess the next Thio next topic How do you guys feel about Amara Stoudemire's triumphant position with the New York return to New York? I don't think this guy ever e go back.
01:06:42
He's been playing all these weeks overseas and trying.
01:06:45
He's always like already.
01:06:46
I'm ready to come back like just I'm good, nice and tired out.
01:06:50
Finally retired, I hope, but this is I think this is not a great situation now.
01:06:55
Marsala Meyer.
01:06:56
He's on a Robert Rock guy, but he's kind of the Alfa Kinda.
01:07:00
You can't you can't be just talking to Marsha anyway.
01:07:03
I mean, um e mark time.
01:07:06
I don't get Michael Olowokandi and Marbury given the faces. Thank Face.
01:07:10
That was one of greatest knows ever seen my life.
01:07:12
Um, are cyanide is a management, but he's gonna be playing with Cady, who is, you know, takes off his shoes and rubs his feet during freaking interviews.
01:07:21
Uh, just is weird.
01:07:22
And then Kyrie, who thinks he's Nostradamus.
01:07:25
Um and then Steve Nash was coming into the situation, I think is terrible for a guy who hasn't coached before, it was probably just gonna be ignored.
01:07:35
What do you think there's gonna? What do you think? That Mara, Son, I was gonna offer anything.
01:07:41
Uh, no, not really.
01:07:45
You know what I really think it's all about? I mean, I don't know what coaching experience and Martin started my ass.
01:07:55
Really? You know, I mean, I think it's all about Steve Nash having a friend.
01:07:58
That's what I think.
01:08:00
That's the only that's and he's not gonna be a defensive coordinator, that's for sure.
01:08:05
E playing the pick and roll with Kyrie Irving's right e.
01:08:12
I really think it's all about Steve Nash.
01:08:15
You heard you heard rumors about Mike D'Antoni, right? All people that Steve Nash had relationships with Nowitzki.
01:08:24
Mike D'Antoni, Now Maher Stoudemire.
01:08:27
I think it's all about Steve match.
01:08:28
Like I need a buddy e bro.
01:08:34
I bet he's calling those guys, and he's like, you guys wanna make some money.
01:08:38
You got I got someone to spend for you guys.
01:08:41
Hey, just be like, Okay, I can get you, like, four or $5 million you know, just joined me on the bench with, so, yeah, I think this is gonna be and again, guys, the guy I want approach.
01:08:57
Now, I was sending somebody gonna talk to him because he loved Rock Nation.
01:09:02
Um, he's represent himself now.
01:09:05
He does not fit that team.
01:09:07
He needs to play this expensive did with you.
01:09:10
I like Spencer them with his town.
01:09:12
I always said it's about the knicks.
01:09:13
We come over.
01:09:14
It's like the godfather thing, right? It's like, uh, there's a veto.
01:09:18
Well, actually got killed them, but that's not a good example.
01:09:20
But you come over and just it is like is like Tony Soprano, right? You just come over and give him the show, The head rub like it's okay.
01:09:28
You know, you messed up, come back to the family e mean, let him come to Brooklyn to New York Knicks, right that kyrie teams are gonna fit you.
01:09:37
You're gonna get frustrated.
01:09:38
You're not gonna get proper playing time, right? Come to the Knicks.
01:09:41
We don't have a point guard, But we have Tom Thibodeau.
01:09:43
We have Mike Woodson we have a good coaching staff, you know, They took away the coach that you like.
01:09:47
I know that you like because he made you better.
01:09:48
Steve Atkins.
01:09:49
Uh, you see, back in, right.
01:09:53
So they took him away.
01:09:55
Come over to the Knicks. Play with this team.
01:09:57
Will be playing with guys like Mitch Robinson, R J.
01:09:58
You could lead and run with a young team when we drive vests or whatever it may be.
01:10:03
Um, even if you drive a guy like killing Hayes, Okay.
01:10:06
Played them with more.
01:10:07
A little bit more than two, right? What is he? 6566? Whatever it is, play more of the two, have RJ slip over to the three, even though there was not a good three point shooter.
01:10:15
But we could find ways trying to prove that.
01:10:17
But come over to Nick's because that that team you talk Mark just said, especially Dinwiddie is they will be a development culture.
01:10:25
Who was he developing? Who they don't want to play? Jack Allen member.
01:10:29
Last year, they had issues with Oh, they're saying D J should play over Jack Allen.
01:10:33
I'm pretty sure it's coming from the Kyrie cam because DJs guy.
01:10:36
Right? So you're gonna push Jared Allen? Laverty is lover.
01:10:40
He's a solid player.
01:10:41
But, you know, I don't know in what way, um, our sound's gonna make his game better because they they're not the same type of player.
01:10:46
Onda, all those new guys.
01:10:47
I don't remember the new guys that play in a bubble.
01:10:49
I don't know how they fit on a team with Kyrie and Katie.
01:10:52
Where is this going to basically be the rockets apart to Where is basically those two guys do usable up 70% of time, and then they dish it out to other guys When the defense collapse on them.
01:11:04
I spend time with me.
01:11:06
If you're listening, come over to the mix, just apologize, you know, kiss the ring.
01:11:11
But come on, play with Because it is literally expensively solving all this trash, right? The same way he wanted to make Brooklyn the so called dinosaur.
01:11:20
Whatever.
01:11:21
Why not come to a dynasty? Has been sleeping for how far not die.
01:11:24
Excuse me? Ah, Gray organizations sleeping for many years, but it's really weakness.
01:11:28
Seems that Leon rose all these tires, you could be a case of that kill your pride.
01:11:32
Going to say what you said, but come home.
01:11:34
You should be with the Knicks, not the Brooklyn Nets.
01:11:37
No one cares about Brooklyn Nets.
01:11:38
You guys have bed style in New Jersey.
01:11:40
You guys don't play in bedside like think about how blind you to this e about you saying you know that he should apologize.
01:11:53
You think Rondo apologize to LeBron before he went to the Lakers? Of course he probably did it.
01:11:59
Of course he probably you like James LeBron James is like, you know who LeBron James reminds me of.
01:12:06
Ah, less sociopathic homeland. Er from the boys.
01:12:09
Like he'll give you a smile like, Yeah.
01:12:11
Hey, man, I'm a superhero.
01:12:13
He's like, You know what? Actually, yes.
01:12:15
LeBron James's homeland.
01:12:16
Er from the boys.
01:12:17
He will go to you what homeland it does every time he goes to solve a crime.
01:12:21
Right? If there like soldiers or cops here saying you guys are the real hearings, you guys really did it.
01:12:27
Then he will go with just uses.
01:12:28
I beams and kill everybody itself behind a c.
01:12:31
That's and he he'll put the smile on it, do all that stuff, but deep down.
01:12:36
He's like, Yeah, you better listen to me or you know something.
01:12:39
That's LeBron James.
01:12:41
He's that type of.
01:12:42
So I'm pretty sure Rondo did that like Rondo is a like This dude was fine with Ray Allen on a team that one more right, you're gonna say and tell me when he sat with that lady from the Celtics and they said, Lebron's my beer? Yeah.
01:12:58
LeBron doesn't remember that LeBron is like row.
01:13:02
There's an Army does that I watched. I have insomnia.
01:13:06
So I watched the game seven against the Warriors.
01:13:10
Blah, blah.
01:13:11
There's a guy in his head who taught himself and said that he's a go over Joe.
01:13:15
Are his finals the great all time? Because Cleveland was ecstatic that he was like LeBron James is homeland from the boys.
01:13:21
Man, I'm telling you, man, so e like that **** right away.
01:13:26
But yeah, I guess another article.
01:13:29
We could talk about a fun article for that, But the end of this episode is your boy, uh, ever petty but necessary shack.
01:13:38
Uh, came after e don't know what you called Dwight Howard.
01:13:44
He's not anybody's hear anything because I have just bugs me but shot cut came after Dwight Howard, and he says, You know, Dwight Howard was trying to do his fate.
01:13:53
Cries ugly.
01:13:54
Uh, you know, color purple, cry on instagram and say Oh, to everybody there And don't give up on your dreams.
01:14:00
You could do it in emotional.
01:14:01
How upset his viewers as faras instagram feed it says, I swear, just keep fighting.
01:14:07
And then the big Diesel was on.
01:14:09
I don't know what show wasn't the MBA account or whatever it was.
01:14:13
Um, he said, You know what? I don't like about a lot of players shocked, as during his guest appearance? A lot of players on their little Instagram accounts bragging that they were the reason they got the championship post.
01:14:24
One pick and Ciccio A down your way up.
01:14:27
Yeah, off Dwight, out of Dwight's postgame celebration.
01:14:32
You ain't do nothing.
01:14:33
I will actually hold on.
01:14:34
Let me just let me just play this hope.
01:14:36
I don't get in trouble.
01:14:37
You guys let me know if you guys can hear this, but yeah, I'll play video.
01:14:54
What's that? A lot of players in the little Instagram bragging like they were the reason they got the championship I ain't gonna say no dance.
01:15:01
There was a way.
01:15:20
Lakers front office post one picking a Hey, I love Shack.
01:15:37
Shack is Oh, my gosh, I love Shack, man, that's that's my guy like, is there a little hater in him? Because near the end of shots career, he was from running.
01:15:45
But he did win chips in his prime with the Lakers, and he was saying, But he did leave.
01:15:51
Well, he left the Magic, you could say, because they didn't offer the max on that stuff.
01:15:56
You know, I think he had his heart set on the Lakers, but the Lakers weren't they didn't work with time, so I actually grew them because the thing that bugs me, I think the thing that was shock and why Shaq and Kobe didn't like a guy like Dwight Howard because they knew they saw how great he waas talent wise.
01:16:11
It's like, Oh, the mold of you like bro.
01:16:14
You came out off your mother's womb, sculpted like the dude has shoulders from my China to freaking Brooklyn like dogs.
01:16:22
You are a beast, but you never took the game seriously enough to take your team to the next level obviously went to the finals, I believe this 1009 remember Courtney lead missing that lay up that could have won game one or tied up.
01:16:36
I can't remember, but Dwight Howard never exuded.
01:16:40
I'm dominant.
01:16:41
And you guys should follow me when he went to the Lakers, you know, he went to the Rockets.
01:16:45
There's always this soft, you know, this guy's kind of double doubles, but he never improved.
01:16:51
Maybe he worked with a LA John, and he never really improved his moves past the same.
01:16:58
Just grab it.
01:16:59
Maybe once to move it. Duncan.
01:17:01
Um, and now he's there, crying about Follow your dreams.
01:17:04
It is like dogs.
01:17:05
You are a cast off that and don't get me wrong.
01:17:09
You know, you went to the hornets, went to Atlanta, and you still put a double double.
01:17:12
But you weren't a leader on your team, you know? You know, you just got what I think.
01:17:18
I think that was the problem.
01:17:20
Him, you know, leaving the magic where he was de guy.
01:17:25
And no matter if he would do something wrong, he was still gonna be the star there.
01:17:31
And, you know, he skipped on that and From that point on, his career was downhill.
01:17:40
You know, every team he went, he was even worse and worse.
01:17:43
You know, you didn't hear about him even.
01:17:46
Yeah, you know, it z the way that he approached his career.
01:17:54
I kind of liken it to joy and be a little bit.
01:17:59
I don't know.
01:18:00
You know, maybe Joel Embiid is a little more, you know, works a little harder or whatever.
01:18:04
You know, Dwight Howard.
01:18:05
I just felt like the approach the game Seriously enough Thio go where he probably could have went with his career.
01:18:13
You know what I mean? And I think I feel like Joel Embiid is kind of the same person, and Joel Embiid still has time to change, right? But I feel like that's why you know, I was with my daughter, my son.
01:18:25
I was like, Man, Dwight Howard's about the winner champion.
01:18:27
I didn't want him to win the championship because I just didn't like the way that he approached the game and I didn't want him to get a chip, you know? Yeah, I just He didn't approach the game the way that I thought he should have.
01:18:40
And if he did.
01:18:41
He would have been, like, dominant really had the ability to be dominant.
01:18:47
You know, even though he didn't have a lot of post moves and shoot from the outside, and the game was changing, he was so powerful, dominant on the inside, I think he still would have been effective, you know? And obviously, he could play defense, you know, big and strong.
01:19:04
I mean, he he was, you know, he he had it in his hands.
01:19:09
He just I know he just couldn't take the game seriously enough, I think.
01:19:14
Yeah.
01:19:15
And Joshua Small Joshua Small wants to fight today, man.
01:19:17
First of all, uh, no one's put that Dwight Howard won't be a Hall of Fame.
01:19:22
First of all, the N B A Hall of Fame by easiest Hall of Fame, of gout sports.
01:19:27
So everybody makes the call.
01:19:29
If you're good, really, really good, you're gonna make a Hall of Fame in MBA.
01:19:33
That's one thing.
01:19:34
Dwight Howard.
01:19:35
Yes, he has the stats to put it.
01:19:36
That's the whole point for the whole of fame talent you could be.
01:19:39
You could be a whole of famous still under.
01:19:41
You know, the funny thing is shack underachieved shock under chief.
01:19:46
He's one of the greatest centers of all time people, literally right.
01:19:49
That shot could have been one of the He could have been top five race plays all the time.
01:19:52
Remember, Shock didn't take care of his body well, especially during his number.
01:19:57
Do you want him to bulk up to take on a lot of guys in the West? But then he started to allow that way to kind of fluctuate and get out of hand.
01:20:04
People said Shot could have been what could have been sort of won seven championships.
01:20:07
How dominant and good he wants to wise, so even shock.
01:20:10
So there's there's levels to this, but at least shock is still here, right? Jack won championships.
01:20:16
You could say it largely on the back of his time.
01:20:19
Obviously, had Jackson had Kobe.
01:20:21
But when you look at those championship teams, especially with the Lakers, were like shot.
01:20:25
Was there that one championship, one of the Miami Heat? As good as the Wayne was, Dwyane Wade wasn't as much of the N B.
01:20:30
One of the Heat to win because there was some question calls against various shock was still a vital part of them winning Dwight Howard.
01:20:37
Yes, he played great defense in the Finals, but there's a guy who was not one of the main causes on that team.
01:20:43
The main Cosmo team was LeBron James and uh, A D and Dwight Howard.
01:20:48
As great as he is, think about this, you take.
01:20:53
There's no way in hell that you would think back in 2004 whenever you got drafted.
01:20:57
Dwight Howard.
01:20:58
That is that You would say he would need a LeBron James and 80 to win his first championship, his first championship.
01:21:04
Think about that as a dominant guy that on his bad did he give you a double double when he's on the team by himself, he needs shot.
01:21:12
He needs LeBron James, and they need to win the championship.
01:21:14
So it is not people hating on him.
01:21:16
Is that again? When you see people who are supposed to be great, you get mad that they didn't achieve even really a the majority of that greatness right again.
01:21:26
This is why people love Kobe.
01:21:28
That's why people reasons Kobe is not top you argue, sitting there and say that Kobe's on the top 10 player Kobe approached the game like every game was his last.
01:21:36
Except for that one.
01:21:37
Sounds waited, shot, But I don't know what was going on.
01:21:41
That was a Game six, whatever.
01:21:42
But every game you still Kobe like their jokes.
01:21:45
There means about Kobe.
01:21:47
Four guys are open, and he's sure against the opponent.
01:21:50
Opposing teams, all five of their players.
01:21:52
They showed I still means of Kobe when he got that, the ankle or whatever, was the lower the leg injury.
01:21:58
And it was basically Kobe with no legs out there on the court.
01:22:01
Still, giving 47 is like because it's like this dual work to like he's, you know, to the bitter bone of his body, right? Dwight Howard? It feels like he left something on the court.
01:22:10
So people are It's like, Come on, dog E.
01:22:14
I think you know about about checks career.
01:22:16
I think he after he got those rains, his tenure in Phoenix, the Celtics, even in in Cleveland.
01:22:27
I think it was It was more for fun for him.
01:22:30
He got the cash, he got the rings.
01:22:32
It was like, Okay, I'm gonna just gonna play because I'm able to play, so I'm not gonna end my career at 32 or wherever, so he just you know, those last years he was just playing with for fun.
01:22:43
I think you know, that's why he wasn't, you know, going for that pure dominance that, you know, like like you said Kobe when he was playing.
01:22:51
Like he he was able to win the chip in his last season.
01:22:54
So, you know, Joshua small when you're doing a lot of else tonight.
01:22:58
So you said I'm sorry.
01:23:00
You said the big man faded away because of the evolution of three point shot.
01:23:03
But what about guys like Yokich? Right? What about guys like and be who you are going to say? All these kind of like guys like bam and a bio is not that the big man is going away.
01:23:13
Is that the the way you utilize them? Right.
01:23:17
And even now, this year, the people who want a championship this prove your point? I just saw the article where they're talking about the big man coming back where literally, they want to use the big man.
01:23:27
Like they said, the team start basically getting these bulked up front courts to basically protect and dominate teams.
01:23:34
When you talk about zone defense, that Lakers team one reason why they're so you were dominant cause they could send their guards out on the perimeter toe hounds on his own.
01:23:41
You try to come in now.
01:23:42
They have a guy like Dwight N A.
01:23:44
D.
01:23:45
Playing in the paint like unless you have deadeye shooters.
01:23:48
Which the Nuggets, their role players and couldn't do it.
01:23:51
The Miami, Miami he couldn't do it unless you have dead I shoes.
01:23:54
You're gonna lose against teams that have athletic bigs like that all the time.
01:23:57
Like the Lakers.
01:23:58
Actually, this proving your point in regards to Big.
01:24:01
That's how you utilize now.
01:24:02
Obviously, we're not going back to Ewing everywhere.
01:24:04
You dump it down to you and he does A You know, the big man dribble e kind of missing, but you know what I'm saying.
01:24:11
But again, even with those guys, the softer skills of the big man, it z your get your Yokich has an unstoppable shot where, literally, he's doing a white the which way he's leaning back and shooting rainbow shots, and you can't defend it like your kitchen.
01:24:27
Murray might be one of these guys that might take the West next year.
01:24:30
You know, e Come on, Josh.
01:24:34
I think the key, I think the key, Josh, is that you have a big man that can defend out on the perimeter.
01:24:45
Play some, you know, play some kind of defense that's out on the perimeter.
01:24:48
I'm not talking about defending guards, but you know, you're shooting your bigs that can shoot, you know, they could defend out on the perimeter and knocked down the middle range.
01:24:56
It doesn't necessarily have to be that they extended all the way out to the three, right.
01:25:01
They knocked down the middle range.
01:25:02
Then they could help spread the floor, open up lanes for guards to drive a little bit.
01:25:07
But if they can defend, you know, if you got three point shooting centers and they can defend them, I think you're good.
01:25:20
You know me.
01:25:21
Because the Lakers dominated.
01:25:23
They dominated Miami because because they were big and they had bigs that could go out on the perimeter and defend.
01:25:32
So you had.
01:25:33
I mean, you had Anthony Davis Garden.
01:25:35
Jimmy Butler? Yes, yes, and I remember me and said, We're talking about this after that game because the game before they won the Heat one, they switched 80 until Jimmy Butler it was.
01:25:47
And I remember I was three of them.
01:25:50
Four, right, The Heat one.
01:25:52
And then we were talking about the next game where Butler was shut down and someone like you got to try and make it happen somewhere.
01:25:58
I'm like, Well, you have 80 on how the hell this butler make it happen Now Butler did, because they won one of the next game, Game five or whatever was on.
01:26:06
Butler had a ridiculous game, But again, Bowler had to be creative with creating space on Jimmy, uh, space on a d.
01:26:14
I mean, the guy was exhausted.
01:26:15
Now they have that mean when I show Jimmy Butler was huffing and puffing and they make it seem like he's like a mechanic because his face and you got the air and that stuff.
01:26:22
But you have to go through hell and back to face against a guy like a D and not don't forget, they also had JaVale making coming off the bench to play, ah, minutes rebounding and do it.
01:26:33
So the big man again, the best teams.
01:26:36
Vogel, we talked about this how they play their zone.
01:26:39
The smart coaches find ways to use what they got or find ways to offset.
01:26:44
Remember, everybody was all the craze.
01:26:45
Was the Warriors.
01:26:46
Right? Okay, so you guys to the three point shot, the perimeter players and everybody gotta be like Steph Curry.
01:26:51
MBA goes in cycles.
01:26:53
Right? Okay, Now you have you want to place tomorrow? Okay, We'll have athletic bigs to be able to come out and defend that.
01:27:00
Then the n b a is going to switch back toe.
01:27:02
Okay, now we need the big men again.
01:27:03
So the MBA, I don't know if it evolves per se, but it's like this is like a spectrum, right? I think everybody, everything has kind of been done under the sun in the NBA.
01:27:12
It's kind of just taking pieces from that spectrum that put on different parts of the board.
01:27:16
Um, we got market here, but he might be frozen.
01:27:20
Uh, was like, half.
01:27:22
Yeah, he's proposing, but yeah, I don't know what, uh, but yeah, You guys have anything else? I mean, that's all really had e I have something.
01:27:33
I don't know if you guys heard it that the Lakers filed for getting lose, then contract off the books.
01:27:43
Did you guys hear it? Lol Deng was still on the books.
01:27:46
He's still he's supposed to be.
01:27:49
For the next two seasons, he's supposed to hit him.
01:27:51
They supposed tohave a hit on the salary cap.
01:27:54
And they filed that because he has a career ending injury that they want that salary off the books.
01:28:02
But after you know them stretching his contract, he played 22 games in Minnesota. Motives.
01:28:10
So how are they even, you know, if the n ba gives them that salary release on the catfish I'm gonna be, bro.
01:28:20
I'm gonna be mad.
01:28:21
Eso So they amnesty them? Yeah, they amnesty them.
01:28:25
And they paid him years, right? He went somewhere else. He went to Minnesota.
01:28:29
He played 22 games for tips.
01:28:32
And, you know, a year later, after the season, he you know the Lakers, you know, want the file, the paperwork for for them to, you know, get off that salary.
01:28:44
Cap it.
01:28:45
So So let me eso when a player when a When the players amnesty.
01:28:50
Right? So I am a steel player.
01:28:52
Yeah, he Oh, yeah.
01:28:56
They just wanted the salary cap off there because they're saying that he has a career ending injury s.
01:29:04
So let me ask you, though, if Okay, say I gotta paying $5 million a year for the next five years, you pick him up for two million? Yeah.
01:29:14
Do I still have to pay him five million or you know the difference.
01:29:19
But the salary cap, it is still the right. Yeah.
01:29:23
So what I'm wondering is what I'm wondering is because he can't play for another team because he's a career ending injury and he can't play for another team.
01:29:33
Is that why they're saying, Look, there's not a chance that he could go for another team and we pay the difference? So, you know, clear it off.
01:29:42
I mean, he's still going to get his money.
01:29:45
Yeah, you know that.
01:29:46
That's why that's why I'm saying, but you know, for me, I don't care if he gets the money.
01:29:50
If he doesn't write, he probably is gonna get it.
01:29:53
My problem is, if the n b a allows them, you know, to get his contract off the books, and you know why they wanted right? Because they can't afford to get anyone on the Lakers roster now because they're gonna be capped out if they signed a D.
01:30:10
And you know, Rhonda is gonna leave.
01:30:12
KCP is looking for a deal, so they're gonna lose plenty of that, That's what.
01:30:17
Yeah.
01:30:20
Rhonda.
01:30:21
Yeah, he's not extending, so, you know, he's looking for a deal.
01:30:24
KCB is rumored to looking be looking around the league for a deal.
01:30:29
So he got two guys, you know, everybody is going to come back, right? But, you know, Dion, Waiters J.
01:30:35
R.
01:30:36
Smith, those guys who were only pickups for the season.
01:30:39
So they're gonna lose.
01:30:40
You know, plenty of those guys from the rotation that we're playing minutes and, you know, and you know that that's why I'm gonna I'm gonna be mad if they allow them.
01:30:49
Because that's another you know, a Teesta mid level exception party, right, for six million.
01:30:54
And you know how LeBron's gonna praise those guys just to get him on the squad? Okay, just take 2.5 million.
01:31:00
We're gonna win a chip.
01:31:01
No.
01:31:02
So that's three guys for for that salary, But I'm not going for it.
01:31:07
Yeah, we discuss Rondo on the big freeze.
01:31:10
He, by the way, Big freezing.
01:31:11
We have an ongoing, uh, Siri's where he's building up.
01:31:14
How to build a championship team were like Year two or something like that.
01:31:18
But we did bring upbringing Rondo to the Knicks.
01:31:21
Now he has a championship.
01:31:23
He's probably sick LeBron at this point.
01:31:24
So e no Simms face lit up when Rondo Because if I go, I mean, if you know, he'll probably go back to the Lakers.
01:31:33
But if they couldn't afford him or something happened, I would love to have him come to the next.
01:31:37
I was the one when we were looking for a free agent point guards.
01:31:41
I mentioned Rondo.
01:31:43
So you know, and you know he's he's one of the best guys.
01:31:46
And if he wouldn't command that much that much money.
01:31:50
So I was talking from the next again, probably even over frame Two guys, two guys out.
01:31:56
I wanted Valley in terms of veterans.
01:31:58
Stopgap, uh, for three guys, CP three, that you're gonna be tough, Dragic.
01:32:03
But he got hurt and he might be trying to go back to the heat unless they bring you on a somehow, um, and Pat Riley did mention, You know, obviously you know, I'm happy to be Bob LA, but anyway, to improve the team whose give me interpret anyway, we don't know.
01:32:16
But if they bring back, they bring a guy like Dr Johnson got like Dr Might be on the back burner.
01:32:22
But that's one guy I definitely wanted for the Knicks and then Rondo.
01:32:24
Uh, I'm not sure, Rhonda complained major minutes.
01:32:27
I mean, he fit perfectly that make a scene because when he was actually hitting threes, but he doesn't have to play 37 minutes a night.
01:32:33
But if you could split time with a guy like Frank or whoever we draft say, even we got the guy that killing Hayes have a guy like Rondo baby department, and Rondo is a own court eking Rondo's no nonsense.
01:32:44
I think that's I think he worked well with Thibodeau.
01:32:47
I think Thibodeau you know Thibodeau's you know, Thibodeau smiles like a freaking video game character.
01:32:52
I could see him loving a guy like Rondo, the court, who can command where guys need to be excellent past.
01:32:58
I mean, Rondo is a secondly good facilitator.
01:33:01
Secondly, good facilitator, Um, you get a guy like killing Hayes, who, you know, I have this argument with a dude on Twitter named Rick.
01:33:09
War is actually SportsCastr to, uh, he's he's on crazy is kind of, uh, and he loves killing Jesus Killing hates me.
01:33:17
Needs a lot of the pick and roll, right? He's not a guy who I think is so he could create a little space to shoot a shot, but he's not perfect in that regard.
01:33:25
So he needs a lot of Rondo came in and showed him how to basically, you know, how to catch guys in the mist up, not just a step back and shoot a shot.
01:33:32
But how to drive, run a pick and roll with your big man when it passed up to the room and when it passed upto, I think he'd be.
01:33:39
I think he'd be astronomically great for the Knicks.
01:33:42
And if that means that you have to give him a big contract for the next two years, I'm not saying a huge maximum.
01:33:46
You give him more than what the Lakers are offering.
01:33:48
He already has a championship.
01:33:50
Yeah, I mean, why not be the guy to kind of slowly bringing the mixed back into prominence.
01:33:55
Um, you know, try to sell them on the next time, make the players.
01:33:59
This year, I don't think what happened, but again, if you get a guy him killing Hayes, Mitch RJ on the in the east? Yeah.
01:34:06
I mean, and Rondeau said he has that.
01:34:07
I think Ronald were a nine or 10 team with maybe a few weeks ago, we could get to that spot.
01:34:11
I think you might see, you know, some of the best one Rondo.
01:34:14
So I mean, asked me.
01:34:15
It might be wishful thinking, but I think Ron would be e think it's definitely wishful thinking.
01:34:20
But, you know, when If you would if you would get a guy like Randall on the squad.
01:34:25
Yo, Julius Randle is gonna have toe.
01:34:29
You know, Rob was gonna come out of respect.
01:34:32
You know, he has a champion with the Lakers with the Celtics.
01:34:36
He's not, you know, ah, young guy anymore.
01:34:38
But he would sort up and, you know, put the team in, uh, in their lanes. Definitely.
01:34:45
You got the coach that could deal with him? Yeah.
01:34:50
I think he didn't want kids on the on the Celtics when when Rondo was winning. Chip.
01:34:56
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
01:34:59
Okay, s So you've got the coach that cannon knows how to deal with them? That that would be great for the Knicks.
01:35:06
I think e on Twitter that they have a relationship.
01:35:13
Yeah, I like it goes, it goes, it goes, Josh.
01:35:19
So wait, you're like Rondo, even though you can't You shot on the playoffs? Uh, better than what he shot before.
01:35:24
And I think about Rondo.
01:35:25
Even if he couldn't shoot his point guard play would elevate our team, right? Astronomically.
01:35:31
E think, Joshua just want to find jobs.
01:35:34
What is your What is the point? I don't get what that is.
01:35:38
Is this the Josh? That that's what else on the UK? Yeah.
01:35:43
Yeah, that's Josh.
01:35:44
Yeah, that's Jock.
01:35:46
Yeah, Josh, Josh, Josh is trolling us.
01:35:50
That's right.
01:35:52
Yeah, a question.
01:35:53
Yeah, I know.
01:35:54
It's not a question.
01:35:55
We know you're trying to talk like you wanna Kyrie.
01:35:57
Irving could shoot better than than Rondo.
01:35:58
Would you want Kyra over on the Knicks? I know you, like, is talented.
01:36:03
A flat earth.
01:36:04
Come on, man.
01:36:06

01:36:33
Uh, yeah.
01:36:34
Well, I'm rooting for the Giants because you don't need you to take care of lawns.
01:36:38
Y'all literally are in the contention for the playoffs.
01:36:41
You have one win.
01:36:42
Yeah, this is N F C.
01:36:45
East is trash Way would have won if we were the one.
01:36:52
We would have been in second place High Dallas and Onley in second place because we lost to Dallas.
01:36:58
If we would have one.
01:36:59
Would have been a second place, e like Like we really blew a chance.
01:37:05
We really blew a chance because we played Philly Way.
01:37:08
Just played Philly, and we should have won the game, right? And then, um, we play, uh, way play next.
01:37:18
Can't even think, but Washington Washington way play.
01:37:21
So we play.
01:37:23
Uh, now who do we play before we play someone before? So way played Monday night we play e.
01:37:34
Can't even think who it is.
01:37:35
Your next game, the next game.
01:37:38
You play the bucks.
01:37:39
You guys get bucks.
01:37:40
That's right.
01:37:41
We play the bucks Monday night, right? So maybe, you know, maybe, you know, that was gonna happen to the with the Rams, and we were right there.
01:37:52
The Rams, we got way.
01:37:55
Rams are Rams.
01:37:56
Are there? Are there like a pretty A pretty team? That's hollow.
01:38:02
They could lose that.
01:38:03
E Bay bucks The way I know Aaron Rodgers, there's no way knows.
01:38:12
E Think the bucks have the number one defense.
01:38:15
We'll find out.
01:38:17
Listen, the Giants have been playing.
01:38:19
They played well against everybody except for San Francisco.
01:38:22
Not well, they've been competitive.
01:38:24
I say that competitive, but we had a I had a marked down as a loss to the bucks anyway, right, But no, no, no, no, no, no.
01:38:35
Listen, listen, listen, listen. Listen.
01:38:37
They blew their chance.
01:38:39
They had it against Philadelphia.
01:38:40
They should have one, right? So the next They had four games that they played Philly, Tampa Bay, Washington, and then Philly.
01:38:49
If they were the beat, Philly lost Example.
01:38:52
Bay then able to play Washington and Philly again they had.
01:38:56
This is a stretch where they had their chance to take a hold of the NFC East and they blew it in that game verse Philly In Philly, they had an 11 point lead in the fourth quarter.
01:39:10
They blow it in Philly.
01:39:13
You know what I'm saying? If they would have won that game, there's a good chance that they beat Washington again.
01:39:18
There's a good chance that they could beat Philly, right? They would have had a strong hold on the NFC East.
01:39:24
They would have played Dallas the last game of the season, and then, you know, they blew it.
01:39:31
They blew that game.
01:39:33
That game right there, they blew it.
01:39:34
So so is happening.
01:39:36
Grim.
01:39:37
The greatest Giants player of all time.
01:39:38

01:39:57
E o.
01:39:59
I like I'm cool with him.
01:40:01
You know what I'm saying? I mean, I'm upset E because this dude when Randall was paralytic ballerina crap, it's not like I am a super duper Randall fan.
01:40:19

01:40:22
E am a frankly Latina fan.

00:01:33
You've got Shaq making fun of Dwight Howard, which I love.
00:01:36
I know people say it's petty or whatnot, but I love it I love it if he's going to get up there and started crying, acting like he wanna Oscar a Grammy like he was a great contributor, a guy that was supposed to be had the physical abilities to be an all time great and basically as good as he Waas, people could argue that underachieved.
00:01:54
So, yeah, let's get to it.
00:01:55
So with the Michael Jordan Michael Jordan comes out.
00:01:58
Yes, Manchester United's playing well, and I'm gonna talk to you guys after, Ah, little bit because I want to see we'll be interested in me covering some Manchester United games.
00:02:07
I want to cover that Manchester United game with PhD.
00:02:09
They play Chelsea tomorrow, an important huge game.
00:02:12
Eso definitely want to see if you guys are interested for my soccer fans.
00:02:16
Just you have to be Manchester United.
00:02:18
Um, so here's what.
00:02:21
Here's what Michael Jordan had to say on an hour long interview with the cigar aficionado aficionado, which actually watch two eyes actually, pretty interesting.
00:02:30
I don't smoke cigars, but for some reason watching that we could do, I think that this Cuban do that runs.
00:02:35
I think he's Cuban, makes you want to smoke cigars from reason.
00:02:37
But here, talking with a guy from a cigar aficionado, he said, Michael Jordan.
00:02:42
By the way, he said, Tiger Woods played at his peak somewhere toward the end of my career.
00:02:46
Then what changed from time frame to now social media tweeting all those type of things that has invaded the personality and personal time of individuals is to the point where some people have to have been able to utilize it to the financial gain and things of that nature.
00:02:58
But for like, for someone like myself, and this is what Tiger deals with, I don't know if I could have survived this Twitter error, where you don't have a privacy that you want and what seems to be very innocent could be always misinterpreted.
00:03:09
I actually agree wholeheartedly with what he was saying about that, because in this era it seems like people are more concerned, Uh, with social media more concerned with the image versus playing right.
00:03:23
Michael Jordan came from a very strong family background.
00:03:26
The father rest in peace was, you know, really, really all Michael Jordan, the brothers, to be extremely and competitive and everything they do play psychological games with them.
00:03:34
Hey, comes from a way different era, uh, than what we see now.
00:03:38
And I actually missed that.
00:03:39
Her, because it was more about greatness, is more about what's inside of you.
00:03:42
Right? So people like to talk about Michael Jordan, and, you know, I always compared with LeBron James.
00:03:48
Think Michael Jordan, that what I like is that even if you didn't like him, even didn't like playing with him, as some people try to make it seem like he's the first person to play with What I like about Michael Jordan was that he found the best in you, whether you like it or not.
00:03:58
Now we go all sit here and say, Oh, you know, Michael John was a jerk.
00:04:01
I wouldn't like to play with him, Bob Block.
00:04:03
But what I like about somebody is that sometimes in our lives we it could build up from whatever.
00:04:08
Maybe maybe your parents don't give you don't give you that.
00:04:10
If that battery in your back to be better than what you are, maybe sometimes the environment around you put you down.
00:04:15
One thing I respect about Michael Jordan was that he basically said, All right, even If you don't want to be the best for a long time before all your life, when you play with me, you're gonna have to be your best.
00:04:26
And let's see where you go from here.
00:04:27
Let's just see where you go from there from you play that your apex, your top best that you can be in your life.
00:04:33
Let's see what that takes you.
00:04:34
Now, if you don't want to do that for the rest of life, fair enough.
00:04:37
When you're playing with me, Michael Jordan, you gotta be the best.
00:04:39
And it might make you a better person.
00:04:41
Look, Steve Kerr, who was a bit player with that team.
00:04:45
He's a coach of the words won a championship.
00:04:47
You can stay and tell me what him play when I joined in.
00:04:49
Shaping up to be that Scottie Pippen, one of the greatest players of all time.
00:04:53
Had that might be true.
00:04:54
If you remember.
00:04:55
I don't remember my Scottie Pippen got traded by Seattle SuperSonics to the Bulls, so Skype it was in this can't miss prospect.
00:05:01
You have to develop under that team.
00:05:02
They were like, Oh, when Scott Scott people got this first year averaged 8.5 points.
00:05:06
I believe from the bench, he's a He's a big time player in his first year.
00:05:09
So that's why I respect Michael Jordan.
00:05:11
Man, you can't think about guys like LeBron James and some of these other guys and and I'm not trying to insult anybody.
00:05:17
Particularly with this error.
00:05:18
Is that you know what this is? Why Jimmy Butler? Such a breath of fresh air Because you see a guy who he put his all into it to try to make himself the best that he could be.
00:05:28
Ah, half as Jimmy Butler is not taking that he team to the finals.
00:05:33
It's just not a bunch of, ah bunch of undrafted rookies Tyler Herro, Obama by both of those guys came first.
00:05:40
Contributors like Duncan Robinson Kendrick, especially in regular season.
00:05:43
Those guys don't make the finals with without Jimmy Bullard without Jimmy Butler playing to his best.
00:05:50
I mean, there's a reason why you love Kobe because it wasn't because of his attitude, because a lot of people hated code.
00:05:54
You know why you love Kobe was because of his work at work ethic, because every time you saw Kobe on the court he gave it his all.
00:05:59
Even when he was being greedy and selfish.
00:06:04
You saw what Kobe It was for him to put the best into his ability to even try to be such a nice play.
00:06:10
Even if it was not good team basketball, right? It was in his heart to say, You know what? I'm gonna go on this road.
00:06:16
I might go to alone stupidly, but I try to be the best of what I am, right? You don't hear excuses from them.
00:06:22
That's why I love Jordan.
00:06:23
You don't hear excuses from you will not be able to beat the Celtics.
00:06:27
Not being able to beat the Pistons at the time.
00:06:29
Yummy.
00:06:30
LeBron James, you hear excuses here in the air, they gotta go and get people on on sports media to say this and that about them For what? I'm watching the game.
00:06:40
LeBron, You went one of finals after finds you try to say, Oh, you hurt your hand and you want some bs wrap around Jay hands and make it seem like you truly hurting literally.
00:06:50
That night you were seeing giving high fives and 60 kids myself. Come on, bro.
00:06:54
This is why some people don't respect LeBron James.
00:06:56
Go because it's not the fact that, not necessarily fact that you didn't win, but the fact that you don't take accountability like, where is the where is the hero's trial? You know? I mean, where's the true heroes trial with LeBron James, Right? Where is that you don't see with them.
00:07:10
So he always wants to be the guy at the top.
00:07:13
But it's like, Did you work your way up there? And I say, You haven't put in hard work, but it's like you play with some of the best players, right? And you force your way to play with some of the best players.
00:07:22
Then you want people to compare uto, join us.
00:07:24
It's like no those people.
00:07:25
That's a different heroes trying.
00:07:26
You got nice heroes, tried to name your own, but those guys were from the mud in terms of work their way up.
00:07:33
Now on T Kobe play with shack, right? Joins up in a different national.
00:07:37
Alright, it's him.
00:07:38
Kareem Magic.
00:07:39
Uh, you know, people say Oscar Robinson, that's so I mean is with it so back to what? What else joining Say when you're talking about super teams, You say, Um, I think you wanna be able to have a competitive balance in the week, Jordan said via cigar aficionado on YouTube.
00:07:54
Whatever.
00:07:55
And if a player is able to choose determine what team he plays for, then you are gonna have some town discrepancy in elite.
00:07:59
So everybody wants to go to Chicago and all the best players are gonna be in Chicago.
00:08:03
You're starting to see a little bit of it now where all the stars try to get together.
00:08:06
The same team, I think, is gonna hurt the over asking of the lead.
00:08:08
From a competitive standpoint.
00:08:09
Only one or two teams to be great and the other 28 will be garbage now suits everybody to check my Morgan Steven Fox living a good life on May soon on.
00:08:18
I agree with him into a sense, but you also realize he's playing in the extremely small market, right? He's playing in Charlotte.
00:08:23
Don't really want to go there, right? I mean, um, Charlotte before he's been running a really bad **** assed great is joining us as a player is a terrible GM.
00:08:33
Terrible on a regards the team, right.
00:08:36
Um but he has a good point.
00:08:38
Look, he's talking about parity where essentially essentially a lot of these.
00:08:43
A lot of these teams that lack of competitive competitiveness, right, it hurts the league right when you have, ah, solid 8, 10 teams to go all challenge for the title.
00:08:51
I'm not talking about.
00:08:52
Get to the players. Talk about challenge for the title.
00:08:54
You have a stronger league, you have more fans, you're gonna have fans.
00:08:57
Indiana.
00:08:58
You're gonna have fans in, uh, Miami.
00:09:00
Yeah, fans in, in in Sacramento, you're gonna have people all over the place.
00:09:06
And that's where you create legends.
00:09:07
Legendary, so called legendary things.
00:09:09
I mean, if the Kings won, it would have been allegedly team just winning one because there's the King's.
00:09:12
It was fun to watch him play, even when the championship so called championship time, they didn't have Mike Williams a white chocolate.
00:09:19
Whatever you call.
00:09:21
So I agree with joining the sense.
00:09:22
I mean, it's it's cool again.
00:09:24
I'm from I'm from the joint everywhere.
00:09:26
If you're the best player in the league or if you want the best players and you want to see the beat of the best players I was is like, it's like the Viking thing, right? When you beat these teams and you have the head you could just put on your counter and say I beat Reggie Miller. I beat Patrick Ewing.
00:09:39
I be Alonzo Mourning.
00:09:41
I beat Penny Penny a shop.
00:09:44
Yeah, I'd be, uh, Gary Payton, Del of shrimp. Sean. Ken.
00:09:49
I'd be the great, uh, Karl Malone and John Stockton.
00:09:54
What happened to that? Now we could sit and talk about the n b a losing rains because the whole hopes up and they are losing that they are losing.
00:10:00
So they and Adam Silver sharpen up.
00:10:03
He said, We're gonna stop that next year.
00:10:04
So over people, I think the NBA's all they want is money.
00:10:07
They play, they play the game and they lost.
00:10:09
They roll the dice and they lost.
00:10:10
But, uh, to build back up the league, I think they have to find ways to build carry.
00:10:16
Now, we talked about this on the channel before where Andy and go subscribe to any end on on SportsCastr.
00:10:23
We're talking about ways to improve the league and I think one of ways increased parity is a long form where basically, you reverse how the draft works in terms of standings, and you make it so that the ninth to the last teams, they got to compete for the ninth spot to get the number one drafted.
00:10:38
Right? So even if I'm not making the playoffs, I'm gonna fight extremely hard to try to get that night pick, because it's gonna give me a better chance to get a top drafted, right? And I think that's how you increase parity because a lot of owners to send back they don't care. They have a trade young.
00:10:51
They have, uh, whoever they have.
00:10:53
Whoever on that team, they don't They don't really care toe improve the team.
00:10:56
I mean, they have their draw, they're making their money.
00:10:59
Okay, good on.
00:11:01
I think that's I think that's that hurts the league long term.
00:11:03
And it's is badly so to me, man, I think if they could be man, I'm sorry.
00:11:09
Oh, my God.
00:11:10
I was trying to put you Oh, So what's everybody SportsCastrs Well, to man thanks for joining, but I agree join a sense that if they could try to make it so that, um well, first I got to call the game a lot better.
00:11:23
I don't like I don't like some of the BS calls.
00:11:26
I don't like some of the trash call to make certain stars Thio basically create artificial stars.
00:11:32
I don't like that N b.
00:11:33
I think it's trash.
00:11:34
So whichever way they can to create parity, they need to do that.
00:11:38
Obviously, joining us by a little biased.
00:11:39
But I agree with him, you know? I mean, watch Dwight Howard, like granted, if the Miami Heat beat the Lakers is great, because now you're seeing this this organic team with a good free agent that no one I'm not care.
00:11:51
No one says no one was saying that he was gonna go to finals.
00:11:54
Everybody gets in and try to act like, you know, reading.
00:11:57
So if they could make that work, I mean that he'd be the lake.
00:12:02
Excuse me? That he'd be the Lakers.
00:12:03
Obviously he would be happy about it.
00:12:05
But, you know, they got to find a way to increase parity.
00:12:08
I don't know how they do that.
00:12:10
Um, somehow make coach important again.
00:12:15
I don't know this, but, you know, watching LeBron James and almost buddies get together, it just feels cheap, you know? I mean, that's why I would have loved to see the Nuggets versus the Heat to most of organic teams going at it with budding stars.
00:12:28
They all drafted.
00:12:29
Um, obviously Butler is coming in free agent.
00:12:32
But again, this is not a guy that everybody was called the 18 free agent yet toe have.
00:12:37
So yeah, and Brown owns the agency.
00:12:40
Which is ridiculous is a conflict of interest, and they allow us an MBA.
00:12:44
If you want to complain about how boxing his MBA is just corrupt when it comes to that, you can.
00:12:48
How can LeBron James have his own agency and bringing you? That's why Marcus Morris had the whole issue.
00:12:54
What I'm saying is, trash is absolute trash.
00:12:56
The Latin MBA.
00:12:57
That's one of things, people.
00:12:59
LeBron James is slowly becoming a divisive figure device if you figure in the game because people CNN's like the product is not better.
00:13:05
Uh, per se, you're bringing this guy on as this is great person.
00:13:09
That was great, this greatest of all time.
00:13:11
You say he's a goat, but every time you see him, he's losing more than his winning and when he didn't He has a stack team, so it's So where is the hero? Where's the hero trial and tribulation that you see LeBron James? There's a reason why people of Jordan I hated during growing up when you look at this career is like, Yo, dude, this really this really came into a team with a whole bunch of guys who, a drug addicted from his words, not mine, got our from his in situations, came into a team where literally, he had nothing.
00:13:36
Chicago was nothing when Jordan came there and he worked his tail off was getting killed in the East with nothing before Pippen, he was getting killed.
00:13:44
So Israel is I don't I agree with Jordan.
00:13:48
Uh, God increasing parity got imprudently because this is this is not gonna work 70% down from last year.
00:13:54
NBA is not never say is dying, but it's not sustainable.
00:13:58
If all the people that double MBA that wants to kill the MBA, let me help you guys out, WMD makes no money.
00:14:04
You've been losing money since your inception.
00:14:07
I want to talk about equality.
00:14:08
If things were actually equal, the WNBA's would not exist.
00:14:12
So Briana.
00:14:13
Smart Swart, whatever her name is.
00:14:15
Wanna get up there? Tracy McGrady is trying to tell you.
00:14:17
Hey, you need to lower the rim.
00:14:19
We're trying to make his people to step on eggshells with these people.
00:14:21
They want to say ESPN myself.
00:14:23
I would just tell us straight up. Look, I'm Tracy Democrat.
00:14:26
I'm a hall of fame. If you wanna give me at the station, whatever.
00:14:28
I'm again on podcasting.
00:14:29
All advertising, right? Let me help you out.
00:14:31
No one is watching the w N B a.
00:14:33
The key demographic.
00:14:34
W va.
00:14:35
Is older.
00:14:36
Is older men.
00:14:37
It's not women.
00:14:38
The same people who complain on Twitter about men this minute They're not watching WB.
00:14:41
They're watching the MBA.
00:14:43
So be honest. Smart.
00:14:44
If you want to survive, lower the room, making more exciting where I could see you guys dunk, make the ball.
00:14:49
I mean, balls really small in the regular, be it.
00:14:52
Well, I'm trying to help you out.
00:14:53
It's not about you because you're you're not making money.
00:14:56
You're losing the lead.
00:14:57
The NBA subsidized w NBA.
00:14:58
So I you know, I just don't like when people killed man and all the w the Embassy.
00:15:04
No, LeBron.
00:15:05
LeBron James makes 0.
00:15:06
4% off the NBA revenues.
00:15:11
Got a smart whatever.
00:15:12
Our sorry superb makes 0.
00:15:13
3% of the WB revenues.
00:15:16
If you did the math reason why, Briana Smart What, uh, super is making less money because w I mean is not generate any money and she's on my revenues.
00:15:27
Imagine if they said profits.
00:15:29
You make zero.
00:15:31
Well, obviously her salary would be part of the cost, but thank God they're doing it at revenue, where you're part of the course versus Hey, we're gonna give you part of profits is you're not making any profits so open.
00:15:42
W NBA place for slamming NBA players Old uh, Harrison Barnes and Harrison Barnes was was the number one rated guy come out of high school, won a championship with the Warriors? Let's let's not slam people's names, because again, if you have to send your best to play the MBA for, ah, billion dollar check, you're not winning that game. WMD.
00:16:01
You got people on the vast majority of people that get on ESPN allies, female writers and SportsCastrs get on and want to issue the MBA.
00:16:08
They don't watch the WB either.
00:16:10
Like that one lady, Um, she got people even complain.
00:16:15
How did she get this big salary with ESPN? I forgot her **** name.
00:16:19
She goes on and she's like, she tries to issue in the W NBA or the MBA.
00:16:24
About all of all is like dogs.
00:16:26
You don't even support me.
00:16:27
They looked through, I think Basketball examine went through it. Katie something.
00:16:30
Katie? Katie Something.
00:16:31
I can't remember Katie something.
00:16:33
Um Katie Nolan.
00:16:35
That's the name Katie Nolan was just trying to destroy, uh, get on W MBA MBA about like, Oh, it's supposed to give it time out or her fashion wrong.
00:16:44
And she on her instagram where she's doing sports stuff.
00:16:47
She didn't cover any of the WNBA.
00:16:49
Did not have one picture w NBA on her on Katie Nolan.
00:16:53
Thank you.
00:16:54
Gregory didn't have anything that w NBA on her.
00:16:55
Instagram never had a w NBA player.
00:16:58
Didn't cover the w N B.
00:16:59
A little show. I got cancer.
00:17:01
So again, First of all, she asked privilege because again, no one knows Kim people.
00:17:05
Other writers like how did she get a million dollars from Houston or $70? Something like that.
00:17:09
It's like she came from.
00:17:10
Fox did nothing at Fox.
00:17:12
Jason Whitlock exposes.
00:17:13
Somebody used to cry during the telecast because she couldn't handle the lines because she couldn't go through her lines proper because she was flubbing her lines on a scripted show.
00:17:25
I felt like the slander man.
00:17:26
They gotta wake up.
00:17:27
MBA Gotta wake up because sports fans, when you antagonize sports fans, they'll go someplace else.
00:17:32
College football's there Now.
00:17:34
I say it's not the same because of covert.
00:17:35
They'll go someplace else. NFL.
00:17:37
Even the NFL trying to be hope they haven't gone at their own audiences like the like the MBA has.
00:17:43
So let's be smart about that.
00:17:45
But let zero sum or more than us.
00:17:47
Ah, Mari, Start of my joining the Brooklyn Nets.
00:17:51
This is gonna be an issue.
00:17:54
This is gonna be issue now.
00:17:56
Ah, Mars.
00:17:57
Start of my I think, one of the most explosive, most fun to watch.
00:18:01
Probably maybe top 20 top 25 power, Forward of all time.
00:18:07
You watch those sons years.
00:18:08
I mean, him and a Mari.
00:18:10
Then, of course, him and Nash.
00:18:11
I mean, they just had a great great chemistry.
00:18:14
Him National Johnson Uh oh, my gosh.
00:18:17
Wanna lose all the names that Shawn Marion, Uh, Joe Johnson got traded, but when he left, right, Because he's like, what? Raja Bell? The big French.
00:18:28
Do I always forget this dude's name for some reason? Oh, my gosh.
00:18:30
Big friends to play like 69 Could play power forward.
00:18:33
Could play point guard and stuff.
00:18:35
Why am I lose these guys? I came over March.
00:18:37
I might.
00:18:38
One of the best players of all one of the best.
00:18:40
Powerful Stop 20.
00:18:41
You want to see a powerful of all time go into that next team working tomorrow? Sidelines a man's man, right? He's calm.
00:18:49
Alfa, right often what we see Hey, has knowledge of self found his Jewish heritage.
00:18:56
Screw to that.
00:18:58
I don't think he's gonna fill the team with a guy like, uh, let me say, is not gonna feel a team like that.
00:19:05
I just don't see that coaching staff for the next being off any decent effect on that team board idea.
00:19:13
Thank you.
00:19:14
The big Well, miss Take. Thank you, man.
00:19:17
I don't know why I'm sure I was gonna always forget Boris Diaz.
00:19:20
Anything that team will not succeed deep Man.
00:19:24
I think it's gonna be an issue.
00:19:26
First of all, Spencer Dinwiddie again, By the way, Go check out Big Freeze on SportsCastr.
00:19:31
I did a show with him.
00:19:32
Some other dudes I did with the Mac who doesn't have a channel.
00:19:35
You guys didn't get the channels because they knowledgeable guys in basketball.
00:19:38
Woody Mac Woodside big on Twitter.
00:19:41
So go, go see them, but going support a big freeze E uncle frizzy on a SportsCastr.
00:19:47
Yeah, we had We had a really good discussion, ongoing discussion about building the construction of the team.
00:19:52
Uh, and we should talk about trying to get special, because again, as much has been spent.
00:19:57
That was a clown Regards always comes about the Knicks.
00:20:00
Delusional comments about the Knicks trying to make Brooklyn like it's just woke thing when I lived in that area for I don't know how many years and no one cares about that area whatsoever.
00:20:10
Sensitivity is a talented player, And when Spencer duty, when Kyrie Irving went down, sensitivity came in. He did an admirable job.
00:20:16
He looked like expensive dignity of old and sensitive.
00:20:19
He's not going to survive on the team now he left, he left Roc Nation.
00:20:22
I believe now he's gonna represent himself.
00:20:24
Good luck to you. Hey, get more money.
00:20:26
Don't give those fees up. If you can negotiate for yourself.
00:20:28
Let's be honest.
00:20:29
You leaving? ROC Nation says a lot.
00:20:30
I think you are trying to angle to leave.
00:20:32
And the funniest place I will work for you would have been the Knicks would have been the Knicks.
00:20:38
Your pride is not gonna let you go to the next now, but imagine expensive.
00:20:41
Now everybody talks about We need a point guard.
00:20:44
Get a guy like expensive them with it.
00:20:46
Completo easily.
00:20:47
Plato One.
00:20:49
Uh, guys came up from the drug grudges or drugs.
00:20:52
Excuse me of, uh the pistons was really nothing for what, three or four years with the Pistons? Guy comes in.
00:20:57
Let me just look at some of his stats.
00:20:59
Uh, I believe his first year with the next team in the, uh, chip not changed in the time of the playoffs.
00:21:08
If he's like one of the best point guards against the pick in the pick off the pick and roll. Excuse me.
00:21:14
Um, this is a guy in Spencer Dinwiddie who come into his own.
00:21:18
This guy averaged 20 points, 20.
00:21:20
6 points last year.
00:21:21
6.
00:21:22
8 Assists.
00:21:23
3.
00:21:25
5 rebounds.
00:21:26
41.
00:21:27
5% from the field on Lee, 30.8% from three, I think. Three point percentage.
00:21:29
77.
00:21:30
8% from 33 point line.
00:21:32
This is a guy that I think could have grown, Uh, 3% sucks.
00:21:36
Really had a good year.
00:21:37
Actually, that year with Brooklyn, the year with Brooklyn, where he broke out.
00:21:43
It was weird.
00:21:44
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.
00:21:45
Hold on the come on.
00:21:47
First sports reference.
00:21:49
Uta broke up with Brooklyn.
00:21:50
He he actually I was 37.
00:21:51
6 points, but since his attempt to one up, his percentage went down.
00:21:55
So that's definitely a present. Improved.
00:21:57
But you've seen it.
00:21:59
You've seen Spencer didn't come in and he could be a point guard, even if we would have got the guy like coming in, which will be hard if you bring this visibility.
00:22:04
But that's at least a guy that can play the point guard position.
00:22:08
Maybe switch to the to be more of a slasher.
00:22:10
Loves to play out where he gets that pick and roll and and gets deeper into the paint or deeper into the mid range.
00:22:17
Right.
00:22:18
Um, he's not gonna fit with Kyrie.
00:22:21
So, Omar side of my What is, um, our side? Who's gonna teach? Where is he gonna be? Impart his wisdom.
00:22:27
Katie's and play like Katie thinks that he's He's above the system Now he spends two years or 3 11 years with the Warriors.
00:22:33
He's good.
00:22:34
Now he don't need instruction from your Mari Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving thinks he's the greatest player coach of all time.
00:22:40
This guy couldn't make that Celtics team home despite the fact that he was a better player than Kevin Walker.
00:22:46
Better players in the world can make.
00:22:47
Cannot make us that that that Celtics team go.
00:22:52
It's gonna be a disaster with Amar E.
00:22:54
Stoudemire.
00:22:55
Man and I like them are side, But I think it has the right temperament.
00:22:57
I think that if I wish I was on a better coaching staff, I wish that Amar Steinmeier can actually get true.
00:23:05
Uh, nds says Guillermo spreading gossip from yesterday.
00:23:08
Uh, yeah, he did have a better person for the Knicks.
00:23:11
He expensively has killed the Knicks A times? Um, yeah.
00:23:16
Especially again.
00:23:17
He can't use a PG, but again, especially, has come in and play the point guard role.
00:23:20
He's been fairly good coming in and playing for Cairo entirely.
00:23:23
Got hurt last year, so we'll see my that Amar E. Stoudemire.
00:23:30
That's election, man.
00:23:31
I just don't see that that that combination work. Oh, crap.
00:23:35
Senator, hopefully wasn't here.
00:23:36
This whole times. I'll be embarrassing.
00:23:38
Hope that wasn't ignoring, but sorry.
00:23:40
Is this waxing poetic about on Mars? I admire, Uh, listen, I'm just a woman e What's going on? I said no.
00:23:48
I just got in.
00:23:49
I just got in.
00:23:50
And I heard you talking about saying something about tomorrow.
00:23:52
I didn't hear the whole thing.
00:23:53
I just got in. Yeah.
00:23:54
Yeah.
00:23:55
First and foremost.
00:23:56
Sim just had, uh, coaches corner Mitchell Robinson.
00:23:59
Everyone's favorite nicked either hate or love.
00:24:01
Uh, take that out on SportsCastr.
00:24:04
Yeah, you might be surprised.
00:24:07
You might be surprised.
00:24:08
I know people think I'm gonna hate on Mitch, but well, we all we all know whose name is holy favorite players are is definitely Julius Randle.
00:24:16
Uh, Kevin Knox was the only guys and since book it is definitely frank.
00:24:22
Frank, Frank.
00:24:23
Definitely frank it things the same sin.
00:24:28
That said Knox is good, but Mr Robinson or not, give boxing champ it.
00:24:33
Mr Robson.
00:24:34
After last year, I take out of the season.
00:24:36
The last year, Mr Robinson, we have 178 blocks, whatever.
00:24:39
Which I think is more impressive than the 74% from the field.
00:24:43
Just write the basket Sin was making You gotta get another Senate, man.
00:24:47
You just get ready, man.
00:24:48
Bob, What does not slide? Mr Knox? Who go? I said that I never said that.
00:24:55
I said, Send knocks to the Geely.
00:24:56
You could go back and check it.
00:24:59
I said, send that man to the G lead because he's lost his confidence.
00:25:04
But I still didn't think that Mitch Robinson was ready to start last year, and I think I was proved correct.
00:25:10
He should be ready to start this year.
00:25:14
We'll put like this, his agent said.
00:25:16
Uh, he's gonna prove more than just being a lot of artists and that so two years of Instagram some God Shammgod three pointers against obstructing two years.
00:25:28
Mitchell Robinson better take more.
00:25:29
I think the five shots his last season.
00:25:32
So you gotta take more.
00:25:33
You gotta You gotta show me something.
00:25:34
You know? I don't need him, Thio.
00:25:37
I don't need Mitch Robinson to prove that he could dribble.
00:25:39
That's that's not what we needed to prove right now.
00:25:42
Like in the in the show when we talked about this offense, you know, it was basically he's gotta work on his form a little bit because it's a little bit funny.
00:25:55
Like if you look at the show when we break it down, he he basically takes in.
00:26:00
He brings, he's got his elbow there, but then his arm comes over like, bends over this way, Then he shoots this way.
00:26:10
Mhm.
00:26:11
Right, Which obviously is gonna make the ball, Maybe fly funny sometimes, you know, So I think he's gotta work on that.
00:26:19
I think in that mid range areas gotta work on getting the ball, being in triple threat, right and having a good, strong stance, you know, protecting the ball, and then obviously the mid range shot, you know? I mean, I think like for a summer, you know, we see all those videos of him dribbling and stuff I think that's most of him just playing around with his friends.
00:26:40
E don't know if that's what they're working on.
00:26:43
I doubt it.
00:26:44
I think that's just been playing around with his friends, having a good time.
00:26:46
But I think those few things is what he needs to work on and then come in, take baby steps.
00:26:52
I don't need to see him.
00:26:53
I mean, obviously there's gonna be times when he would be a release valve, you know? He might have to dribble it up.
00:26:58
You know, there's some pressure on the guards, you know? He gets the rebound, this impression on the guards.
00:27:02
He might have to take a few dribbles to break the press and then, you know, get the ball out.
00:27:07
Um, but I don't need to see him trying to get out on the perimeter and do all these kind of moves because he's not ready for that yet.
00:27:14
E was watching, uh, shout out to whose mark? Because he put me on to him.
00:27:19
But I was watching Jalen Smith from Maryland, and one thing about Geno Smith.
00:27:24
I love that he has that move where he could step like he sets that spin was so beautiful and it literally takes one or two dribbles, right? And we've seen Mr Robinson police in the practices where, you know, a literally a jab step with the left.
00:27:39
So then going spin I mean, James Smith does it so well and absolutely again you don't have to sit there and dribble and Shammgod and you know all this crap.
00:27:49
You know, it's literally Ah, good set up.
00:27:52
You set the foot Once the guy you see him kind of commit Thio Thio his left step, your left foot Nice spin around right at the rim.
00:28:00
If he recovers, you just fake it.
00:28:02
You're tall enough and go right back up.
00:28:04
And I think you said it's simple moves like you watch some of the best players.
00:28:08
I mean, say what you want about shock because Jack had power but shocked at some of the best footwork in the N B A.
00:28:14
And Shock wasn't coming from the three point line outside that one All Star game.
00:28:17
He was joking around, but he wasn't doing all this stuff like at the basket was hey, catch the ball through the field where the defenders plan, Then you make the spindle and then you explode.
00:28:29
And obviously Miss Robinson is not shot, but one or two spin moves for God so tall, so long, who's going to get filed? I mean, it's just amazing, I think.
00:28:42
I don't know if you wanna go check the episode, because I just said that something had some work to do.
00:28:46
But I hope you guys ****yze like at least a shot that he did make, which was remember one in Atlanta.
00:28:51
He made the foul line on.
00:28:53
Then there was one with the Knicks were playing at home.
00:28:55
I can't remember which team and I think with the Did you guys like Do you guys like a hitching a shot where, like, he kind of like something? Well, first of all, he rushes it because I think he's just nervous.
00:29:05
Um, but there's like he kind of was like and I know what you tell me what the curve, I guess the arm.
00:29:10
But he hitches like I don't know, like like I don't know.
00:29:14
I was like, kind of like to get ready and it's not nice and compact.
00:29:18
It's not, you know, it's kind of what your shoes like you don't want as much like obviously usually your legs to create the energy to jump right, You have to go out your apex.
00:29:28
But once you at your apex, you don't like you're not moving your body and doing, you know, all this wild jazz, you're basically nice and compact and your arm everything.
00:29:37
So it's you try to repeat the angle.
00:29:39
And with Mitch, at least when I sold the Hawks, even though you made the shot when he took the shot, the foul line, you know, I mean, it was just It was like it was ugly.
00:29:47
But then you see what the fire line is.
00:29:48
Obviously, is a cool compact.
00:29:51
It's a nice, you know.
00:29:52
I mean, I know he says a little bit the former's little message, but at least you know that weird kitsch.
00:29:58
Yeah.
00:29:59
I mean, you guys remember Charles Hayes from the Rockets? Used to have that weird.
00:30:02
They hold up the foul line and then trying to throw it in and people would get caught up.
00:30:05
It's not like that, so yeah.
00:30:08
Yeah, So I wasn't able Toe was trying to find those shots.
00:30:13
I wasn't able to find those shots But I did.
00:30:18
If you hopefully Aiken, you'll be able to see this.
00:30:21
Let me know if you could see this.
00:30:22
Um, are you able to see Are you able to see that? Okay, right.
00:30:29
So if you look so look at this.
00:30:31
Look at his elbow and then looked away.
00:30:33
Look at the way his arm, like Bend's mhm, right? So it's on, like, bends over in front of his face before he lets the ball go, you know? And maybe that's where Maybe that's where it hitches.
00:30:50
Coming in.
00:30:51
I mean, has a good flick with his wrist and everything, but his arm just kind of bends over in front of his face on and it makes the ball, I think, makes the ball.
00:31:01
Now curve out a couple of these shots, uh, in his video.
00:31:05
The ball curved out and hit the front of the rim.
00:31:07
Even though he's on this side off the rim, it curves out, hits the front of the room because off where he is releasing the ball and then, you know, he kind of, um you know, he kind of flips the ball this way, you know, a little bit when it when it when he shoots so e anybody kind of like curls because I see because at least he has.
00:31:34
So the form of he's guiding the ball correctly write with his left, right? He's kind of covering it.
00:31:39
So it's kind of like a wall.
00:31:40
I guess you want him to do more of that.
00:31:42
But I think I don't know.
00:31:44
I was somebody could break this down scientifically because I don't know it.
00:31:47
But I think with certain people, right, basically how the joints are and we're the strength and all that stuff comes into play.
00:31:54
I think some people like you know, obviously must remember if he if he if someone got him to do that right, he will slowly started like it's like the same thing.
00:32:01
Alonso, right? Lonzo used to do that.
00:32:03
E don't know what the hell that was, but you know, and he starts to shoot him or straight.
00:32:07
I think with him I would love him to get a train who could changes must remember.
00:32:11
But I think what certain place that this thing, like sometimes their release points to get strength somewhere, right? I know people to shoot like like from the hair, but they will give you 50 like shooting like from here.
00:32:22
And I'm like, How the hell like the balls? Not like How do you? Yeah, There are some people that shoot from the side over here.
00:32:29
Yeah, Look at the rim, This one.
00:32:31
They look at the rim here and they got the ball over here.
00:32:34
I don't know.
00:32:35
I can't shoot that way.
00:32:36
I don't know how they do it, but there's some people that do it.
00:32:37
Some people do the catapult, like Larry Bird. I mean, one of the greatest.
00:32:41
You bring that ball way back there, My point e for people, in a way.
00:32:48
And I love how they're trying to mess up the cell real quick.
00:32:51
Someone is putting up a campaign and push this dude further down.
00:32:55
Right? Because I I've watched for cell, right? And I'm like, he shot like that in college.
00:32:59
Like, why are they saying this? So someone wants him to drop someone.
00:33:03
Definitely want something to say.
00:33:05
I don't I don't see a problem with the way it shoots.
00:33:08
E don't.
00:33:09
I don't understand what people are complaining about just because the ball is a little bit ****her back here.
00:33:14
He's still up here.
00:33:15
Yeah, e.
00:33:19
So I don't understand the problem.
00:33:21
Go to this Virginia game when he dropped 27 or whatever it was he was doing at the whole game.
00:33:25
I'm like, all right? And I literally said that in the video I did.
00:33:27
I said, One of the benefits of that is that, you know, it's hard to touch.
00:33:31
It's hard to reach back there like you can't i e get the story all the time.
00:33:35
For a few times I said, My Spanish Remember my cousin, my cousin rental tell I used to to rent beast of a player.
00:33:41
But we got Molly Bob.
00:33:42
I, uh, it's too.
00:33:44
I dudes is really the only good to players over another place up One dude who looked like a roided up Jimmer Fredette was killed.
00:33:51
My cousin, uh, all over the court.
00:33:53
Now I have to play some other dude who wasn't good, wasn't athletic, but literally shot the ball here and there was he probably dropped 25.
00:34:01
There's nothing I could do.
00:34:02
I'm in his face, all that stuff, like do this.
00:34:04
I'm like I know he's gonna shoot Jack stuff and I'm like, Alright, there's no I can't do anything about that.
00:34:10
So it's a It's an advantage if you could do it.
00:34:12
But for Mitchell Robinson, I hope he's with the right people to guide him.
00:34:16
I just hate the instagram stuff because I just think that's a distraction on that goes to I guess I talked about this before, But if you give your opinion on this with your boy, uh, Michael Jordan said about the so called the so called hold on, I got the wrong article up the Instagram era off players where Let me just read the quote real quick.
00:34:40
E guess he rips social media.
00:34:42
He didn't really refuses giving his opinion.
00:34:44
But he said on a cigar aficionado, He said, Tiger Woods played at his peak somewhere toward the end of my career.
00:34:50
Then we'll change from that time frame to now, social media, Twitter and all those types of things and that has invaded the personalities and personal time of individuals is to the point where some people have been able to utilize it to the financial game and things of that nature.
00:35:04
But for someone like myself, and this is what Tiger deals with.
00:35:07
I don't know if I could have survived in the Twitter error where you don't have the privacy that you would want that you want.
00:35:12
And what seems to be very innocents can be can always be misinterpreted.
00:35:16
So how do you feel about I? I agree with him wholeheartedly.
00:35:20
Uh, I mean, I mean, I agree with him about the social media area era about him not being able to survive it.
00:35:30
E mean, just don't be on it.
00:35:32
If you just not on it, then you know you could probably survive it, right? But, you know, if you grow up in the error where you have social media, then you know you're probably gonna be on it if that's the area that you grow up in.
00:35:46
Uh, you know, e mean, social media gets a lot of people in a lot of trouble. Fairly.
00:35:53
You know, some players able to use it some not just players, but people are able to use it for their benefit.
00:35:59
Um, and I do agree, like a lot of the privacy that players have now.
00:36:08
I get well, obviously private.
00:36:11
You know, the privacy.
00:36:12
Some players, people put their own stuff out there.
00:36:15
Um, but if you're just walking down the street, someone snap a picture, any kind of picture you could be walking with your daughter and people don't know what your daughter.
00:36:24
Then they put it on social media and say you're walking with some chick or something crazy, right? I mean, and and it's got to be It's got to be nerve wracking for some of these guys because they grow up on social media so they get on social media.
00:36:42
Naturally, you're going to search your name and then you start to see all this stuff about you.
00:36:47
Good stuff, bad stuff, most.
00:36:49
For the most part, most people are gonna look and focus on those bad things that people say about him, right? And what I respond, Or maybe take it to heart Or, you know, people feel like this. People feel like that.
00:37:00
It that's yeah.
00:37:03
I mean it.
00:37:04
Zta uff.
00:37:06
It's tough because I know like I didn't grow up with social media when I was a teenager.
00:37:13
But as a started to come in right in my mind set, I was like you worried about what somebody said on my space.
00:37:22
You what this person said on this or that man.
00:37:24
It's just social media, right? But for these kids growing up, it's not just social media, it is life.
00:37:31
So yeah, you guys, when you know, you hear kids and I'm not making light of this, But when you hear like kids who committed suicide because I'm like in my head again, I grew up most of our social.
00:37:44
I remember the days you have to call somebody on the phone.
00:37:47
So, like, literally have a 500 conference like you couldn't just take somebody on.
00:37:51
Do you have kids now who unfortunately, influence that point where, you know, committed suicide because of pressures and that stuff.
00:37:57
And I'm just like in my head and I just always in my I'm just like, could you just turn it off like I mean, like, I don't understand.
00:38:03
So, you know, and Michael Jordan, this is what you know.
00:38:07
I come from because I think in regards to basketball, Michael Jordan is trying to say, but you don't want to seem like a hater, right? If you disagree, your hater, whatever I think Michael Jones trying to basically say, like during my day like basketball was everything right? Andi, Obviously, people are now people did the thing, got the chicks, whatever.
00:38:26
Cars, whatever.
00:38:27
You have fun during the all time, let's not make it seem like these guys.
00:38:30
But Michael Joe, I feel like it's like and other people said this.
00:38:34
I heard Shumpert talk about this. I've heard Stephen Jackson.
00:38:36
They're people who don't get that check.
00:38:38
They don't give a **** about practicing.
00:38:41
They don't give a **** about improving the game like they don't care, he said.
00:38:44
I forgot who it was.
00:38:45
It might have been. It might have been.
00:38:47
Stephen Jackson said, Majorities, guys, you know, like your average players, whatever they in the league, and a lot of it can be a lot better, but they just don't care like they got.
00:38:56
They got the money, they got the chicks, they got the cars, got the house.
00:38:59
They're good.
00:39:00
And the thing about Michael Jordan's that when he talks about that, then you're saying that people care more about taking this picture doing that, showing all versus okay, you're in the lead.
00:39:09
You haven't won anything, right? Okay, You got a nice contract.
00:39:12
But, you know, do you want to be great, you know? I mean, unfortunately, with Kobe retiring, you know, I think that that, you know, you see, you see little players here that I think the next type of players who might be that guys like Jason tandem.
00:39:24
I kind of see it in him.
00:39:26
Obviously, last summer.
00:39:28
Jimmy Butler, who, unfortunately, he's older.
00:39:31
I wish Jimmy Butler was with this Heat team since he got drafted.
00:39:33
I would have loved to see that.
00:39:34
But you know, guys, that Jimmy Bhullar, it's a very select few who I think that they take basketball to like it is their life.
00:39:42
Like OK, socially find whatever.
00:39:44
But I'm in the gym.
00:39:45
I'm finding ways I'm doing diets.
00:39:47
I'm doing all this stuff to get to the maximum.
00:39:49
I want that championship cause I wanna be mentioned with the greats versus I don't you know, the clicks, right? And, you know, I'm not hating on social media.
00:39:57
I just when I watch basketball, man, forget even the mix.
00:40:00
I just missed the days of yesteryear where, like yeah, I mean, you had that that passion, that fire, like people got into fights.
00:40:08
Now, obviously, we see fights for like Marcus Morris and for payment for Jae Crowder.
00:40:12
That feels a little bit different than when, Like John Starks and you and went up against the Bulls, right? It's like, you know, I mean, we're cool.
00:40:20
We call off the court like we're friends, whatever.
00:40:21
But on the court, I wanna kill you.
00:40:23
You want to kill me? Is because we all wanna be great.
00:40:26
That little intangible thing about basketball, about being one of the great that fire that burns in us.
00:40:31
And I think a lot of times Social Media's help that fire is kind of flamed out, right? You know, you're getting praise your being now the goal is being thrown everywhere.
00:40:38
Oh, you're the goal.
00:40:39
Your goal is like, you know it kind off.
00:40:42
Yeah.
00:40:44
And you know, sometimes I think, you know, like you said, that fire isn't always there.
00:40:49
These these kids play so much basketball.
00:40:52
I think it starts to the value how much they appreciate the game.
00:40:56
Because for them, there's always another game.
00:40:58
You know what I'm saying? They played from the time.
00:41:01
You know, some of these kids start playing at figuring 3 to 5 years old, like playing real intense basketball and training, right? And by the time they get into the MBA, it's like, Okay, okay.
00:41:17
Yeah, right. Yeah, OK.
00:41:18
I mean, I've been playing basketball, right? You said you do from Mount Vernon.
00:41:22
I remember the story.
00:41:23
I think you got recruited at eight.
00:41:25
So you get a by duke of somebody like they don't know what it was, but they basically making time.
00:41:32
I forgot who it was, but it's, like, eight or elementary school.
00:41:35
I'm like, you know, I agree with you.
00:41:38
You burned out, and maybe you don't wanna be a guy to carry the family.
00:41:41
And what? I'm sorry.
00:41:42
I don't remember.
00:41:43
You know, you miss.
00:41:44
And one thing, somebody saying that people want to survive.
00:41:46
Remember, Jordan basically had social media back then.
00:41:50
Because if you think about the media attention he had to go through, it was just a bad, like, literally the cameras were on him.
00:41:58
24 like paparazzi touchdown in Europe.
00:42:02
Like couldn't.
00:42:04
It was social media.
00:42:06
Every Jordan 5 a.
00:42:07
m.
00:42:08
He I saw him, you know, order.
00:42:09
Pizza is like dog.
00:42:11
What? Like the dude lips.
00:42:13
So people saying you wouldn't survive? I mean, I agree.
00:42:14
I think there's some people like Charles Barkley would have been Probably, uh, Charles Barkley.
00:42:24
Hey, would have been on social media.
00:42:27
I mean, he would have got in trouble.
00:42:28
E no, he would.
00:42:29
He would have got in trouble.
00:42:30
Big time on social media.
00:42:32
Oh, my gosh.
00:42:34
But, uh, another thing that might be I think you'd like Thio talk about how he talked about the competitive balance in the N B A.
00:42:43
He said the same cigar aficionado.
00:42:45
Ah, show.
00:42:46
He said, I think you want to be able to have competitive balance in that we join and say on if a player is able to choose determine what team he wants to play for, that you're gonna have some town discrepancy in the league.
00:42:57
So if everybody wants to go to Chicago and all the best players gonna be in Chicago, you start to see a little bit of it.
00:43:02
Now we're all the stars try to get together on the same team, but I think is going to hurt.
00:43:08
It is going to start to hurt the overall aspect of the league.
00:43:10
From a competitive standpoint, only one or two teams will be great and the other Tony will be garbage.
00:43:15
How do you feel about that? I agree with him, e I agree with.
00:43:19
I just don't know if you can stop it.
00:43:22
I don't know how you stop it from happening, but I definitely agree with him.
00:43:26
Uh, and a lot of that, too, comes from au summer basketball.
00:43:33
You know, like like, if you if you're familiar with the au culture, um, you know, you could have one player that's on a team, and then, you know, he wants his friends to come over and the coaches like, Well, I really want this player, okay? And let his buddy come on to the team because I want this guy, or if you've got a group of four or five players, that's really good, and you know that they're all friends there, traveled to team the team together.
00:43:57
You know what I'm saying? And if they don't end up liking this team, they'll move to this team.
00:44:01
They'll move to that team.
00:44:03
Um, I think that coaches moved right into the MBA guys, just, you know, you know, these are my friends, and we're gonna play on the same team together, and you know they get happy.
00:44:17
I mean, you know, LeBron James basically kind of started that culture in the MBA, right? And if you look, if you pay attention to, you know, his high school career, Hey, had a AU team that, you know, they used to go travel, you know, all over the place and play that entire AU team.
00:44:39
Or I don't know if the entire team but most of those guys end up playing for his high school.
00:44:45
Like they took that team and started playing for that high school that high school wasn't, um what's the name of the high school now? Irish? The, uh, all right.
00:44:55
I can't think of the name, but I e yeah, yeah, yeah, e something, but But they weren't powerhouse school.
00:45:07
Oh, right.
00:45:09
They weren't They weren't a powerhouse school.
00:45:12
And they're not a powerhouse school.
00:45:13
Now, ST ST Vincent. Yeah.
00:45:16
Yeah, they want a powerhouse school.
00:45:20
But that AU team went and played for that school and how you know, whatever they did is a private school, so they could let them in, however they want to.
00:45:28
Right? And then all of a sudden, that school became ah, powerhouse school for the time that LeBron James was there, Right? And then, you know, obviously, you know, after high school, you get into college.
00:45:39
There's not much you can do about, you know, having your guys come with you.
00:45:43
But then in the n b A, he's like, I want to play with my friends and my buddies, you know, s so I think that, you know, kind of passes on to the n b.
00:45:55
A.
00:45:56
Not every player is gonna have the power to be able to do that, but a lot of players will.
00:45:59
Not a lot.
00:46:00
Some players will some players to your best players.
00:46:02
They're gonna have the power to be able to team up if they want to.
00:46:06
I think the best way.
00:46:07
And I know Andy shout to Andy, uh, people to push channel sportscast.
00:46:12
Andy and we talked about this.
00:46:14
I appreciate talking about this as well.
00:46:16
I think I brought us up with you before, and I think that one way to increase parity is through that, making it so that the odds of flip right teams nine through whatever they have a higher chance of getting them will pick.
00:46:28
Right? So you're gonna have teams.
00:46:30
I think somebody seems like kind of lazy.
00:46:32
They just sit back like, we'll get a trade, y'all.
00:46:34
Next year, he'll be outdraw.
00:46:35
You get some of these thes teams who are lazy or these owners who are kind of lazy and just they just want to draw for the for the night.
00:46:43
You know, they just want somebody to bring in some viewership.
00:46:46
No, they Bradley Bill Bradley.
00:46:48
Bill's gonna play for tonight.
00:46:49
We don't care about the playoffs.
00:46:50
Um, I think if you can get it so that you have people competing for that number one spot on you also have teams who might be a little bit strategic.
00:46:59
Might played out where it's like begin the eight seed, But we're gonna get blown out versus we go with the ninth seed.
00:47:04
We don't wanna get a play off, but we get a higher draft pick or higher odds to get like a kid coming in, you know, I mean, you can figure out later, but I think if you could do something where you get these lower ranked teams out, you've got one that improved, uh, improves the viewership right now because you're gonna see somebody scrap.
00:47:22
Your team's going all out and trying toe beat each other, right? You know, somebody's end of season games.
00:47:27
They're gonna be a lot more competitive, right? You know, which can the Knicks at number 10 can they beat the number 90? Whatever.
00:47:33
Try to get a guy like a Cunningham or Barnes or, uh, something like that on.
00:47:39
I think that obviously, if you could bring those stars to some of these teams that just miss it because think about this, if there's a team that just missing it came in at night.
00:47:45
So the next got the ninth spot in a 10 spot, they get a kid coming in.
00:47:48
Get a guy like New York is not a good example.
00:47:50
Using New York, let me use, Let me say, like or let me say, Charlotte Hornets, they come in, they compete.
00:47:57
Jordan, you know, hires proper basketball people, right? Who can actually draft players develop and they just missed right.
00:48:03
You get a night spot now they get a guy like a Cunningham.
00:48:06
Cunningham comes situation where is not as oh man, this team sucks.
00:48:10
I'm gonna leave here as soon as I can, Okay? there's something is something brewing here.
00:48:14
I like this Bob, so I just think that it improves the or increases.
00:48:19
The incentive improves incentive for some of these crappy teams to do better, right? And so you know and again when it comes back to what I talk about with coaching and why seems they hire guys like Look what's happening next we get to the Nets, they're hiring guys like Steve Nash and stuff, you know, higher actual good battle people.
00:48:37
Put more evidence to improve your foreign office and make sure that, you know is not just your friends.
00:48:41
Your brand is actually good coaches who could lift up your team.
00:48:45
So I think that's one way you could improve the so called parity.
00:48:48
Now, how will it fly with the C B A.
00:48:51
They might have some leverage because the MBA has lost what they're down 70% in ratings, 67% rating. Something like that.
00:48:57
So I think, to spur up viewership, especially with the style of play.
00:49:02
And if you get more parity over time, next year's draft, these next few drafts of honey Basil, these guys, you have some talented kids coming out if you can somehow go back to C B A and sell it, I think the teams might be the teams have you before that the players might push back.
00:49:17
I'm trying to figure out why they were pushed back.
00:49:20
Maybe maybe might feel like, Oh, you're trapping me.
00:49:23
But again, if it's the better teams, they're getting somebody to high draft picks. It might make it out of trapping.
00:49:27
Teams might not like it, but right, that's what What would make it tough, because the bad teams then might always stay bad.
00:49:37
But what if they did? I think we talked about this before, right? What if they had for those teams that didn't make the playoffs, they had some kind of tournament.
00:49:45
It would increase viewership.
00:49:47
So they had, you know, one end of the year tournament before the playoffs start, right? There's, You know, before the playoffs start, maybe you take and you say, OK, we're gonna take a week off.
00:49:59
Let the teams who were in the MBA playoffs prepare, get some rest and prepare for the playoffs right instead of just starting right at.
00:50:08
You know, sometimes you get a team that on Friday they had toe play a team to get into the playoffs.
00:50:15
And then on Monday, the playoff game starts. Or Sunday.
00:50:19
Their playoff game starts, right? What they say.
00:50:22
Okay, we're gonna give a week, let those guys rest up a little bit, get prepared for the playoffs.
00:50:27
And during that week, the teams that didn't make the playoffs, we're gonna have a tournament that decides some seating, right? And maybe you have, Maybe you say your top.
00:50:39
You look at who has what draft picks and your top five teams.
00:50:43
They're going to be a top five minute lottery.
00:50:45
Maybe you say your top 10 teams.
00:50:47
I don't know how many how many teams don't make the playoffs.
00:50:50
Six is how many teams have made 30 30.
00:50:55
So there's 10 teams 16.
00:50:58
There's 30 teams, so there's 14 teams that don't make the playoffs, right? So maybe if you did like, Okay, you know you got your top seven or your top six or top five or six, right that you know they're gonna get seated.
00:51:13
12345 However, that works out.
00:51:15
And then all the other teams, they they go into a little playoff format themselves to see who's going to get picks.
00:51:25
789 10 11 12 you know and so on or something like that, I don't know.
00:51:31
You know, you know that way your worst teams still get the chance to get the best players in the draft.
00:51:36
But then those other teams, you know, they gotta you know, they go into a little tournament to decide whether or not they're going to get some of those other draft picks.
00:51:46
So, so, so, so, so so, so the best teams.
00:51:51
So which ones get the best best draft picks? So so your your teams with the worst, let's just say, let me see if there's 14 teams that don't make the playoffs, uh, you know, to try to make it.
00:52:05
Even so, your top six teams your worst six teams, get the top six picks automatically.
00:52:15
They're not even in that little playoff format.
00:52:17
They automatically get the top six picks.
00:52:19
The lottery will determine which you know what number they are and then pick seven through whatever.
00:52:27
Though the remainder of those teams you know the remainder of those teams going toe a playoff like a little playoff format and then you have your playoff teams, I guess you know you would give them.
00:52:40
I don't know.
00:52:41
I guess it would be pretty complicated, right? Your playoff teams, you know, they'd have They'd have picked 16 through 30.
00:52:51
And however they will see that they would have picked 16 to 30.
00:52:54
Then those middle from pick seven through pick 15.
00:53:00
They kind of have a little playoff to decide who's gonna get what? Yeah, or something like that.
00:53:07
E, I want that draft.
00:53:09
I want that first top draft it to be attainable because you don't want it.
00:53:15
Where? Because if you don't have a tournament, some of those middling the bad teams they may have been, like, screw it.
00:53:24
I was gonna be, you know, whatever.
00:53:25
Like I play this tournament.
00:53:26
I'm gonna get the eighth pick if I don't play this time.
00:53:28
I was trying to get the eighth pick anyway, versus if you incentivize.
00:53:31
And now it's like, Okay, this team is garb is not good.
00:53:36
We get that top draft pick, you gotta play.
00:53:38
It's such and such team.
00:53:39
Um, I just think that incentive will change how some of these terrible teams operate now to Joshua Smalls.
00:53:47
He broke two things that disagree one, he said, that the ratings would go certain, literally the end of thes crap. Teams play.
00:53:54
No one's watching them.
00:53:55
No one cares Every the players have set.
00:53:58
No one's watching the Knicks play the Pistons at the end of season, uh, to close it out of the mix.
00:54:03
But if ever been censored to say, Hey, whichever team comes in whatever, like you get better odds to get the number one draft pick despite the fact that you weren't the worst team, whatever.
00:54:13
The next night, examples used the worst thing, but the Knicks was somewhere middling, and they could compete for those those what's in? And you're talking about this tournament or even just without saying where it's, like, 90 or whatever.
00:54:23
Trust me, you're gonna get people watching it because everybody wants to.
00:54:25
Everybody wants to see their team get the next kid coming in.
00:54:28
Every I want to see their team gets the next you know, so called a mellow Barnes.
00:54:31
What we want to say Jalen Greene and Monte based, who's gonna get Nick's gonna get? Trust me a lot of basketball heads, you go on Twitter so to the next Twitter.
00:54:40
Very, very, uh, energetic.
00:54:44
People are Knicks fans on Twitter.
00:54:45
Trust me, they will.
00:54:47
All those people will watch.
00:54:48
Viewership will stay strong with some of these crap your teams on, he said of Ah, he said something else about he said, like, Oh, some I don't agree because given a participation trophy.
00:54:58
But if you're incentivized teams to fight to get better draft picks, how is that a participation trophy? Exactly Getting a draft pick anyway, You're fighting for traffic.
00:55:09
You're not fighting to say, Hey, I got a trophy.
00:55:12
It's like, not and it's not again.
00:55:14
It's not as if teams you want to so that teams that are competing for this, right, um, when they're competing for this, they're not gonna sit there.
00:55:22
Obviously, if you had, you know, certain when people talk about the process, right? Literally Everyone knew the sixties were tanking for how many years, right? It was ugly basketball.
00:55:32
They were legit.
00:55:33
Tanking for how many years until they gotta be.
00:55:35
No, no, no, no, no.
00:55:37
No whales.
00:55:38
That came out today.
00:55:39
And Ben Simmons, right? How about okay? We're fighting for this.
00:55:44
We get out our star he elevates us now we're in the playoffs now.
00:55:48
Other players want to come and play this team that won.
00:55:51
You might have a team that sucked, but the coaching came in.
00:55:54
They change the culture.
00:55:56
They change, the style of players improved.
00:55:57
Now you get a kid coming here.
00:55:58
You go into next season, you get ah, Bradley, Bill, whoever.
00:56:00
I'm just making up names to play alongside this guy.
00:56:03
That team is no longer going to sit there trying to tank to get another draft.
00:56:07
It would be stupid.
00:56:08
Be weird.
00:56:09
You have always times that players now contribute.
00:56:11
Now they're gonna obvious.
00:56:12
Now that team might get to the playoffs, right? And then think about this.
00:56:15
The team that was eight.
00:56:17
They come down into the pool to compete all this, you're gonna have good basketball.
00:56:21
Imagine if remember the Heat usedto when they lost out in the playoffs by a little like one game when they had, like, dr years before.
00:56:27
But looking at a bunch of decent players driving like James Johnson, they weren't great, right? That team, they just missed it.
00:56:34
Now they're competing Now, The team that's playing for that night spot or whatever to get the top draft pick.
00:56:38
They come in next year together.
00:56:39
Kid coming here.
00:56:40
My money.
00:56:41
What? Maybe that team You're not gonna get a bunch of players teams playing bad basketball to get a top traffic.
00:56:47
You're gonna get good basketball.
00:56:48
Trust me, it's going to sustain people like I wanna watch this.
00:56:51
This is is like is like a nightie on steroids That makes any sense.
00:56:55
So I don't know what people, if you don't like the idea, that's fine.
00:56:58
But I think, uh, the only thing that I'm concerned about is, you know, your bottom teams it's gonna be It might make it hard for me to get talent in the draft, right? Because, you know, like, look at the West, you know, you might have teams that are really good, really, really good.
00:57:18
Don't make the playoffs right.
00:57:21
And then they end up getting the number one pick right, because they they're a good team anyway, you know? I mean, so that that's the only thing that would make me a little nervous about it.
00:57:33
And you do.
00:57:34
Good point.
00:57:35
Uh, you know, why would replacement level players Uh, yeah, that's another thing.
00:57:42
Why would they? Why would those players play for their replacement? E? I mean, but the thing is, you're getting paid to play, and you know why? You know why they would play? I mean, it would put them in a tough situation, right? But I think it would look poorly upon them toe other free agents thio other teams.
00:58:08
If they're going to become a free agent, if they don't play, you know, if they don't actually go out there and play basketball, teams are gonna look and say, You know what? You know this guy, This this guy's not You don't want to go around.
00:58:21
Yeah, yeah.
00:58:22
We don't want this guy around.
00:58:23
You have them in the tournament again, You say, Why would a like some just said, you know, maybe regular season, blah, blah.
00:58:31
But again, we've seen in the bubble where you have bubble stars who like Who is this guy? Where the hell he comes up next team.
00:58:39
I know that this team got destroyed, but they literally I don't know how many guys were, like, averaging double digits in a bubble.
00:58:45
And I was like, Who the hell are any of these guys like I know guys, before, they didn't have Kyrie or Katie didn't have did with.
00:58:51
So I think it could actually work.
00:58:54
Yeah, and then and then, you know, give them, You know, they're they're playing a few extra games.
00:59:03
Give them some extra money.
00:59:05
Yeah, right.
00:59:07
Give him a little bit of extra money for playing, you know? And then, you know, it's like you got the NC double A and then you got the What's the other one? N i t the n i t.
00:59:18
Right, You know, not in the tournament, guys, but it actually means something, but it means something to those people who are playing.
00:59:25
It means something, you know, I mean, and And if you do that kind of incentive where you say, hey, you know what? They didn't make the big time, but they're playing for, you know, they're playing for your position or whatever they're playing for, you know? And then you get to see how some of these guys it might help some of these guys.
00:59:41
You get to see how they perform in pressure situations with some of these guys who's, you know, never been in the playoffs, right? You say Well, you know what? They were in a playoff type situation and they performed well, you know? And so you might decide, You know, we'll keep this guy or we won't keep this guy because we don't think he could perform well or whatever, So e think that's something that's interesting, man.
01:00:04
If a guy like and I know people don't like him have a guy like Alfred Pain, right? So the Knicks were fighting for that spot.
01:00:09
A guy like hell for pain have a terrible season, comes in that bubble, right that people say, Why would you play for we'll put like this? You're probably not gonna get a good deal from another team anyway, with your bad played in the regular season, if you come in for the next 23 weeks, whatever and ball out, the team might look at you in a different lines.
01:00:27
Say, like some just said, Hey, let's keep him.
01:00:29
Let's resign him versus you go to another team that may may not fit.
01:00:33
So I think it could work, man, on those young teams, those younger teams, you give them a chance to like we always talk about with tanking right you don't always prepare, you know, because you're you're tanking.
01:00:47
You're losing games so you don't prepare you don't take it seriously or you know what is gonna force teams to To take things seriously.
01:00:54
When you get to that little tournament to say, You know what, that's prepared.
01:00:57
We want a chance to get this, whatever draft pick, what I'm saying. So we need to prepare.
01:01:05
We need to prepare for it.
01:01:06
I mean, it does create ah conundrum or whatever for a conundrum for, uh, those players who might be on the way out.
01:01:16
That's That's the lead.
01:01:18
It was probably on the way out anyway.
01:01:21
Exactly.
01:01:24
You know, I mean, I mean, think about it, isn't it that way now, at the end of the season, right when they say, Oh, yeah, these guys, these guys air tanking, You know what I'm saying? And you know, you got players playing and you know they're playing out the rest of the season knowing that a draft pick may come in and replace them, right? Yeah, you know, I mean, I mean, I guess I guess now you know you can have some teams that say, Well, we're gonna win this game on purpose or something like that.
01:01:52
But, I mean, players go out there and they play.
01:01:55
I think most of the players would want to know they wouldn't even be thinking probably about the draft pick, right? They'd be like, Yo, let's let's go out.
01:02:02
Let's try toe, win this, You know, give it you get the team gets an incentive.
01:02:06
But you got to get the players some kind of incentive as well.
01:02:09
All right? Yeah.
01:02:11
So I don't know, Andy.
01:02:12
What do you think, bro? I think money would make everything work.
01:02:16
Just a tip like $30,000 tip for each way.
01:02:22
And pro.
01:02:23
They're gonna be playing for each every 82 games.
01:02:26
Just Nashua.
01:02:28
You know, I'm sorry, man.
01:02:31
I don't trust anything with this.
01:02:32
This new draft, uh, the way the probabilities and stuff works, man, I You know, I think there's another way to n b.
01:02:40
A.
01:02:41
Could just do a black box kind of situation where they can have their teams that they want, um, Thio get top drive picks, because again, I remember 2012 how Republicans got the draft pick because they were what they were owned by the MBA is just kind of wearing in Cleveland.
01:02:55
Got all those first round draft picks after LeBron left.
01:02:58
Make it make it so It's a little bit more transparent, you know? I mean, I don't really like how.
01:03:04
It's just weird, like the Knicks suck last year.
01:03:07
And then it's like what? The Pelicans got the number one pick and then the Grizzlies got that.
01:03:11
And they're both better than the Knicks.
01:03:12
So it's like, Yeah, I mean, you can't suck enough.
01:03:16
I mean, just be a Knick fan.
01:03:17
We can't suck enough together top draft pick, and it's like we're never We haven't been good enough to do anything because our team construction.
01:03:23
So give me something that provides me more transparency That makes a little bit more fair in my eyes.
01:03:29
Obviously, MBA, they wanna do their things to get people in or to certain teams.
01:03:34
But just give me, give me competition.
01:03:36
Give me something more transparent than the crap they're doing.
01:03:40
Where I gotta watch some little short kid from Cleveland pick up.
01:03:44
Was it two or three years in a row? They got the first round.
01:03:46
The first pick, like come on.
01:03:47
Dogs like they had, like, 4444 picks in, like, six years. Probably.
01:03:54
Yeah, I think that would make any.
01:03:57
Uh, yeah.
01:03:59
Well, what you guys didn't say about this, you know, like for the teams that don't make the playoffs, that they're gonna play games, it's gonna still bring crowds, revenue and stuff like that.
01:04:12
And now the no, the 14 teams, They go home and you know, their fan bases.
01:04:20
They have to watch other teams play right.
01:04:22
Meanwhile, you could still have them watching games, For example.
01:04:26
For me, I never watched it like the first round of the playoffs.
01:04:30
I just skip it.
01:04:31
I just have that mourning period that my Knicks are not playing the playoffs.
01:04:35
So you know, I don't watch basketball then, but you know, later in the playoffs are probably watch a couple of games.
01:04:41
But if the Knicks would be playing even for a draft pick for whatever right, I will probably watching those games.
01:04:48
So you know, and that's probably most of the fans.
01:04:51
You know that.
01:04:53
You know, when their team goes out, they basically, you know, stop watching and stuff like that, that that's That's for the Cairo guys that also spend money on jerseys, on gear and on everything.
01:05:06
So, no, that would be a huge percentage wise.
01:05:09
It would be a huge no proportion of revenue if they would play, even for draft picks after the season, Right? So, yeah, I just don't understand.
01:05:21
Like, I think it e you have some owners who were just lazy and but pushed back against us.
01:05:26
But for the most part, incoming players coming in.
01:05:30
I mean, if you don't want these guys going, and every time they get drafted by Indiana, whatever they want to leave to go to L.
01:05:36
A or, you know, play with LeBron e, make it so that parody is increased and you'll sleep.
01:05:42
You're waking some of these owners who hide their friends and don't care to come in 15 games below 500.
01:05:49
Um, you awaken some of these these guys, so I think it's a good idea.
01:05:53
I think so.
01:05:55
I'm gonna ask Joshua.
01:05:56
What is the He said This is the media against nixed an MBA against Knicks rhetoric that I hate.
01:06:03
What did we say about what? What did we say anything about being against the Knicks were talking about all teams.
01:06:12
Oh, I think he's just e mean in this set up.
01:06:17
The Knicks wouldn't even Probably they probably lose.
01:06:22
It is right.
01:06:25
I don't know what.
01:06:26
I don't know what Josh is talking about.
01:06:28
So I guess the next Thio next topic How do you guys feel about Amara Stoudemire's triumphant position with the New York return to New York? I don't think this guy ever e go back.
01:06:42
He's been playing all these weeks overseas and trying.
01:06:45
He's always like already.
01:06:46
I'm ready to come back like just I'm good, nice and tired out.
01:06:50
Finally retired, I hope, but this is I think this is not a great situation now.
01:06:55
Marsala Meyer.
01:06:56
He's on a Robert Rock guy, but he's kind of the Alfa Kinda.
01:07:00
You can't you can't be just talking to Marsha anyway.
01:07:03
I mean, um e mark time.
01:07:06
I don't get Michael Olowokandi and Marbury given the faces. Thank Face.
01:07:10
That was one of greatest knows ever seen my life.
01:07:12
Um, are cyanide is a management, but he's gonna be playing with Cady, who is, you know, takes off his shoes and rubs his feet during freaking interviews.
01:07:21
Uh, just is weird.
01:07:22
And then Kyrie, who thinks he's Nostradamus.
01:07:25
Um and then Steve Nash was coming into the situation, I think is terrible for a guy who hasn't coached before, it was probably just gonna be ignored.
01:07:35
What do you think there's gonna? What do you think? That Mara, Son, I was gonna offer anything.
01:07:41
Uh, no, not really.
01:07:45
You know what I really think it's all about? I mean, I don't know what coaching experience and Martin started my ass.
01:07:55
Really? You know, I mean, I think it's all about Steve Nash having a friend.
01:07:58
That's what I think.
01:08:00
That's the only that's and he's not gonna be a defensive coordinator, that's for sure.
01:08:05
E playing the pick and roll with Kyrie Irving's right e.
01:08:12
I really think it's all about Steve Nash.
01:08:15
You heard you heard rumors about Mike D'Antoni, right? All people that Steve Nash had relationships with Nowitzki.
01:08:24
Mike D'Antoni, Now Maher Stoudemire.
01:08:27
I think it's all about Steve match.
01:08:28
Like I need a buddy e bro.
01:08:34
I bet he's calling those guys, and he's like, you guys wanna make some money.
01:08:38
You got I got someone to spend for you guys.
01:08:41
Hey, just be like, Okay, I can get you, like, four or $5 million you know, just joined me on the bench with, so, yeah, I think this is gonna be and again, guys, the guy I want approach.
01:08:57
Now, I was sending somebody gonna talk to him because he loved Rock Nation.
01:09:02
Um, he's represent himself now.
01:09:05
He does not fit that team.
01:09:07
He needs to play this expensive did with you.
01:09:10
I like Spencer them with his town.
01:09:12
I always said it's about the knicks.
01:09:13
We come over.
01:09:14
It's like the godfather thing, right? It's like, uh, there's a veto.
01:09:18
Well, actually got killed them, but that's not a good example.
01:09:20
But you come over and just it is like is like Tony Soprano, right? You just come over and give him the show, The head rub like it's okay.
01:09:28
You know, you messed up, come back to the family e mean, let him come to Brooklyn to New York Knicks, right that kyrie teams are gonna fit you.
01:09:37
You're gonna get frustrated.
01:09:38
You're not gonna get proper playing time, right? Come to the Knicks.
01:09:41
We don't have a point guard, But we have Tom Thibodeau.
01:09:43
We have Mike Woodson we have a good coaching staff, you know, They took away the coach that you like.
01:09:47
I know that you like because he made you better.
01:09:48
Steve Atkins.
01:09:49
Uh, you see, back in, right.
01:09:53
So they took him away.
01:09:55
Come over to the Knicks. Play with this team.
01:09:57
Will be playing with guys like Mitch Robinson, R J.
01:09:58
You could lead and run with a young team when we drive vests or whatever it may be.
01:10:03
Um, even if you drive a guy like killing Hayes, Okay.
01:10:06
Played them with more.
01:10:07
A little bit more than two, right? What is he? 6566? Whatever it is, play more of the two, have RJ slip over to the three, even though there was not a good three point shooter.
01:10:15
But we could find ways trying to prove that.
01:10:17
But come over to Nick's because that that team you talk Mark just said, especially Dinwiddie is they will be a development culture.
01:10:25
Who was he developing? Who they don't want to play? Jack Allen member.
01:10:29
Last year, they had issues with Oh, they're saying D J should play over Jack Allen.
01:10:33
I'm pretty sure it's coming from the Kyrie cam because DJs guy.
01:10:36
Right? So you're gonna push Jared Allen? Laverty is lover.
01:10:40
He's a solid player.
01:10:41
But, you know, I don't know in what way, um, our sound's gonna make his game better because they they're not the same type of player.
01:10:46
Onda, all those new guys.
01:10:47
I don't remember the new guys that play in a bubble.
01:10:49
I don't know how they fit on a team with Kyrie and Katie.
01:10:52
Where is this going to basically be the rockets apart to Where is basically those two guys do usable up 70% of time, and then they dish it out to other guys When the defense collapse on them.
01:11:04
I spend time with me.
01:11:06
If you're listening, come over to the mix, just apologize, you know, kiss the ring.
01:11:11
But come on, play with Because it is literally expensively solving all this trash, right? The same way he wanted to make Brooklyn the so called dinosaur.
01:11:20
Whatever.
01:11:21
Why not come to a dynasty? Has been sleeping for how far not die.
01:11:24
Excuse me? Ah, Gray organizations sleeping for many years, but it's really weakness.
01:11:28
Seems that Leon rose all these tires, you could be a case of that kill your pride.
01:11:32
Going to say what you said, but come home.
01:11:34
You should be with the Knicks, not the Brooklyn Nets.
01:11:37
No one cares about Brooklyn Nets.
01:11:38
You guys have bed style in New Jersey.
01:11:40
You guys don't play in bedside like think about how blind you to this e about you saying you know that he should apologize.
01:11:53
You think Rondo apologize to LeBron before he went to the Lakers? Of course he probably did it.
01:11:59
Of course he probably you like James LeBron James is like, you know who LeBron James reminds me of.
01:12:06
Ah, less sociopathic homeland. Er from the boys.
01:12:09
Like he'll give you a smile like, Yeah.
01:12:11
Hey, man, I'm a superhero.
01:12:13
He's like, You know what? Actually, yes.
01:12:15
LeBron James's homeland.
01:12:16
Er from the boys.
01:12:17
He will go to you what homeland it does every time he goes to solve a crime.
01:12:21
Right? If there like soldiers or cops here saying you guys are the real hearings, you guys really did it.
01:12:27
Then he will go with just uses.
01:12:28
I beams and kill everybody itself behind a c.
01:12:31
That's and he he'll put the smile on it, do all that stuff, but deep down.
01:12:36
He's like, Yeah, you better listen to me or you know something.
01:12:39
That's LeBron James.
01:12:41
He's that type of.
01:12:42
So I'm pretty sure Rondo did that like Rondo is a like This dude was fine with Ray Allen on a team that one more right, you're gonna say and tell me when he sat with that lady from the Celtics and they said, Lebron's my beer? Yeah.
01:12:58
LeBron doesn't remember that LeBron is like row.
01:13:02
There's an Army does that I watched. I have insomnia.
01:13:06
So I watched the game seven against the Warriors.
01:13:10
Blah, blah.
01:13:11
There's a guy in his head who taught himself and said that he's a go over Joe.
01:13:15
Are his finals the great all time? Because Cleveland was ecstatic that he was like LeBron James is homeland from the boys.
01:13:21
Man, I'm telling you, man, so e like that **** right away.
01:13:26
But yeah, I guess another article.
01:13:29
We could talk about a fun article for that, But the end of this episode is your boy, uh, ever petty but necessary shack.
01:13:38
Uh, came after e don't know what you called Dwight Howard.
01:13:44
He's not anybody's hear anything because I have just bugs me but shot cut came after Dwight Howard, and he says, You know, Dwight Howard was trying to do his fate.
01:13:53
Cries ugly.
01:13:54
Uh, you know, color purple, cry on instagram and say Oh, to everybody there And don't give up on your dreams.
01:14:00
You could do it in emotional.
01:14:01
How upset his viewers as faras instagram feed it says, I swear, just keep fighting.
01:14:07
And then the big Diesel was on.
01:14:09
I don't know what show wasn't the MBA account or whatever it was.
01:14:13
Um, he said, You know what? I don't like about a lot of players shocked, as during his guest appearance? A lot of players on their little Instagram accounts bragging that they were the reason they got the championship post.
01:14:24
One pick and Ciccio A down your way up.
01:14:27
Yeah, off Dwight, out of Dwight's postgame celebration.
01:14:32
You ain't do nothing.
01:14:33
I will actually hold on.
01:14:34
Let me just let me just play this hope.
01:14:36
I don't get in trouble.
01:14:37
You guys let me know if you guys can hear this, but yeah, I'll play video.
01:14:54
What's that? A lot of players in the little Instagram bragging like they were the reason they got the championship I ain't gonna say no dance.
01:15:01
There was a way.
01:15:20
Lakers front office post one picking a Hey, I love Shack.
01:15:37
Shack is Oh, my gosh, I love Shack, man, that's that's my guy like, is there a little hater in him? Because near the end of shots career, he was from running.
01:15:45
But he did win chips in his prime with the Lakers, and he was saying, But he did leave.
01:15:51
Well, he left the Magic, you could say, because they didn't offer the max on that stuff.
01:15:56
You know, I think he had his heart set on the Lakers, but the Lakers weren't they didn't work with time, so I actually grew them because the thing that bugs me, I think the thing that was shock and why Shaq and Kobe didn't like a guy like Dwight Howard because they knew they saw how great he waas talent wise.
01:16:11
It's like, Oh, the mold of you like bro.
01:16:14
You came out off your mother's womb, sculpted like the dude has shoulders from my China to freaking Brooklyn like dogs.
01:16:22
You are a beast, but you never took the game seriously enough to take your team to the next level obviously went to the finals, I believe this 1009 remember Courtney lead missing that lay up that could have won game one or tied up.
01:16:36
I can't remember, but Dwight Howard never exuded.
01:16:40
I'm dominant.
01:16:41
And you guys should follow me when he went to the Lakers, you know, he went to the Rockets.
01:16:45
There's always this soft, you know, this guy's kind of double doubles, but he never improved.
01:16:51
Maybe he worked with a LA John, and he never really improved his moves past the same.
01:16:58
Just grab it.
01:16:59
Maybe once to move it. Duncan.
01:17:01
Um, and now he's there, crying about Follow your dreams.
01:17:04
It is like dogs.
01:17:05
You are a cast off that and don't get me wrong.
01:17:09
You know, you went to the hornets, went to Atlanta, and you still put a double double.
01:17:12
But you weren't a leader on your team, you know? You know, you just got what I think.
01:17:18
I think that was the problem.
01:17:20
Him, you know, leaving the magic where he was de guy.
01:17:25
And no matter if he would do something wrong, he was still gonna be the star there.
01:17:31
And, you know, he skipped on that and From that point on, his career was downhill.
01:17:40
You know, every team he went, he was even worse and worse.
01:17:43
You know, you didn't hear about him even.
01:17:46
Yeah, you know, it z the way that he approached his career.
01:17:54
I kind of liken it to joy and be a little bit.
01:17:59
I don't know.
01:18:00
You know, maybe Joel Embiid is a little more, you know, works a little harder or whatever.
01:18:04
You know, Dwight Howard.
01:18:05
I just felt like the approach the game Seriously enough Thio go where he probably could have went with his career.
01:18:13
You know what I mean? And I think I feel like Joel Embiid is kind of the same person, and Joel Embiid still has time to change, right? But I feel like that's why you know, I was with my daughter, my son.
01:18:25
I was like, Man, Dwight Howard's about the winner champion.
01:18:27
I didn't want him to win the championship because I just didn't like the way that he approached the game and I didn't want him to get a chip, you know? Yeah, I just He didn't approach the game the way that I thought he should have.
01:18:40
And if he did.
01:18:41
He would have been, like, dominant really had the ability to be dominant.
01:18:47
You know, even though he didn't have a lot of post moves and shoot from the outside, and the game was changing, he was so powerful, dominant on the inside, I think he still would have been effective, you know? And obviously, he could play defense, you know, big and strong.
01:19:04
I mean, he he was, you know, he he had it in his hands.
01:19:09
He just I know he just couldn't take the game seriously enough, I think.
01:19:14
Yeah.
01:19:15
And Joshua Small Joshua Small wants to fight today, man.
01:19:17
First of all, uh, no one's put that Dwight Howard won't be a Hall of Fame.
01:19:22
First of all, the N B A Hall of Fame by easiest Hall of Fame, of gout sports.
01:19:27
So everybody makes the call.
01:19:29
If you're good, really, really good, you're gonna make a Hall of Fame in MBA.
01:19:33
That's one thing.
01:19:34
Dwight Howard.
01:19:35
Yes, he has the stats to put it.
01:19:36
That's the whole point for the whole of fame talent you could be.
01:19:39
You could be a whole of famous still under.
01:19:41
You know, the funny thing is shack underachieved shock under chief.
01:19:46
He's one of the greatest centers of all time people, literally right.
01:19:49
That shot could have been one of the He could have been top five race plays all the time.
01:19:52
Remember, Shock didn't take care of his body well, especially during his number.
01:19:57
Do you want him to bulk up to take on a lot of guys in the West? But then he started to allow that way to kind of fluctuate and get out of hand.
01:20:04
People said Shot could have been what could have been sort of won seven championships.
01:20:07
How dominant and good he wants to wise, so even shock.
01:20:10
So there's there's levels to this, but at least shock is still here, right? Jack won championships.
01:20:16
You could say it largely on the back of his time.
01:20:19
Obviously, had Jackson had Kobe.
01:20:21
But when you look at those championship teams, especially with the Lakers, were like shot.
01:20:25
Was there that one championship, one of the Miami Heat? As good as the Wayne was, Dwyane Wade wasn't as much of the N B.
01:20:30
One of the Heat to win because there was some question calls against various shock was still a vital part of them winning Dwight Howard.
01:20:37
Yes, he played great defense in the Finals, but there's a guy who was not one of the main causes on that team.
01:20:43
The main Cosmo team was LeBron James and uh, A D and Dwight Howard.
01:20:48
As great as he is, think about this, you take.
01:20:53
There's no way in hell that you would think back in 2004 whenever you got drafted.
01:20:57
Dwight Howard.
01:20:58
That is that You would say he would need a LeBron James and 80 to win his first championship, his first championship.
01:21:04
Think about that as a dominant guy that on his bad did he give you a double double when he's on the team by himself, he needs shot.
01:21:12
He needs LeBron James, and they need to win the championship.
01:21:14
So it is not people hating on him.
01:21:16
Is that again? When you see people who are supposed to be great, you get mad that they didn't achieve even really a the majority of that greatness right again.
01:21:26
This is why people love Kobe.
01:21:28
That's why people reasons Kobe is not top you argue, sitting there and say that Kobe's on the top 10 player Kobe approached the game like every game was his last.
01:21:36
Except for that one.
01:21:37
Sounds waited, shot, But I don't know what was going on.
01:21:41
That was a Game six, whatever.
01:21:42
But every game you still Kobe like their jokes.
01:21:45
There means about Kobe.
01:21:47
Four guys are open, and he's sure against the opponent.
01:21:50
Opposing teams, all five of their players.
01:21:52
They showed I still means of Kobe when he got that, the ankle or whatever, was the lower the leg injury.
01:21:58
And it was basically Kobe with no legs out there on the court.
01:22:01
Still, giving 47 is like because it's like this dual work to like he's, you know, to the bitter bone of his body, right? Dwight Howard? It feels like he left something on the court.
01:22:10
So people are It's like, Come on, dog E.
01:22:14
I think you know about about checks career.
01:22:16
I think he after he got those rains, his tenure in Phoenix, the Celtics, even in in Cleveland.
01:22:27
I think it was It was more for fun for him.
01:22:30
He got the cash, he got the rings.
01:22:32
It was like, Okay, I'm gonna just gonna play because I'm able to play, so I'm not gonna end my career at 32 or wherever, so he just you know, those last years he was just playing with for fun.
01:22:43
I think you know, that's why he wasn't, you know, going for that pure dominance that, you know, like like you said Kobe when he was playing.
01:22:51
Like he he was able to win the chip in his last season.
01:22:54
So, you know, Joshua small when you're doing a lot of else tonight.
01:22:58
So you said I'm sorry.
01:23:00
You said the big man faded away because of the evolution of three point shot.
01:23:03
But what about guys like Yokich? Right? What about guys like and be who you are going to say? All these kind of like guys like bam and a bio is not that the big man is going away.
01:23:13
Is that the the way you utilize them? Right.
01:23:17
And even now, this year, the people who want a championship this prove your point? I just saw the article where they're talking about the big man coming back where literally, they want to use the big man.
01:23:27
Like they said, the team start basically getting these bulked up front courts to basically protect and dominate teams.
01:23:34
When you talk about zone defense, that Lakers team one reason why they're so you were dominant cause they could send their guards out on the perimeter toe hounds on his own.
01:23:41
You try to come in now.
01:23:42
They have a guy like Dwight N A.
01:23:44
D.
01:23:45
Playing in the paint like unless you have deadeye shooters.
01:23:48
Which the Nuggets, their role players and couldn't do it.
01:23:51
The Miami, Miami he couldn't do it unless you have dead I shoes.
01:23:54
You're gonna lose against teams that have athletic bigs like that all the time.
01:23:57
Like the Lakers.
01:23:58
Actually, this proving your point in regards to Big.
01:24:01
That's how you utilize now.
01:24:02
Obviously, we're not going back to Ewing everywhere.
01:24:04
You dump it down to you and he does A You know, the big man dribble e kind of missing, but you know what I'm saying.
01:24:11
But again, even with those guys, the softer skills of the big man, it z your get your Yokich has an unstoppable shot where, literally, he's doing a white the which way he's leaning back and shooting rainbow shots, and you can't defend it like your kitchen.
01:24:27
Murray might be one of these guys that might take the West next year.
01:24:30
You know, e Come on, Josh.
01:24:34
I think the key, I think the key, Josh, is that you have a big man that can defend out on the perimeter.
01:24:45
Play some, you know, play some kind of defense that's out on the perimeter.
01:24:48
I'm not talking about defending guards, but you know, you're shooting your bigs that can shoot, you know, they could defend out on the perimeter and knocked down the middle range.
01:24:56
It doesn't necessarily have to be that they extended all the way out to the three, right.
01:25:01
They knocked down the middle range.
01:25:02
Then they could help spread the floor, open up lanes for guards to drive a little bit.
01:25:07
But if they can defend, you know, if you got three point shooting centers and they can defend them, I think you're good.
01:25:20
You know me.
01:25:21
Because the Lakers dominated.
01:25:23
They dominated Miami because because they were big and they had bigs that could go out on the perimeter and defend.
01:25:32
So you had.
01:25:33
I mean, you had Anthony Davis Garden.
01:25:35
Jimmy Butler? Yes, yes, and I remember me and said, We're talking about this after that game because the game before they won the Heat one, they switched 80 until Jimmy Butler it was.
01:25:47
And I remember I was three of them.
01:25:50
Four, right, The Heat one.
01:25:52
And then we were talking about the next game where Butler was shut down and someone like you got to try and make it happen somewhere.
01:25:58
I'm like, Well, you have 80 on how the hell this butler make it happen Now Butler did, because they won one of the next game, Game five or whatever was on.
01:26:06
Butler had a ridiculous game, But again, Bowler had to be creative with creating space on Jimmy, uh, space on a d.
01:26:14
I mean, the guy was exhausted.
01:26:15
Now they have that mean when I show Jimmy Butler was huffing and puffing and they make it seem like he's like a mechanic because his face and you got the air and that stuff.
01:26:22
But you have to go through hell and back to face against a guy like a D and not don't forget, they also had JaVale making coming off the bench to play, ah, minutes rebounding and do it.
01:26:33
So the big man again, the best teams.
01:26:36
Vogel, we talked about this how they play their zone.
01:26:39
The smart coaches find ways to use what they got or find ways to offset.
01:26:44
Remember, everybody was all the craze.
01:26:45
Was the Warriors.
01:26:46
Right? Okay, so you guys to the three point shot, the perimeter players and everybody gotta be like Steph Curry.
01:26:51
MBA goes in cycles.
01:26:53
Right? Okay, Now you have you want to place tomorrow? Okay, We'll have athletic bigs to be able to come out and defend that.
01:27:00
Then the n b a is going to switch back toe.
01:27:02
Okay, now we need the big men again.
01:27:03
So the MBA, I don't know if it evolves per se, but it's like this is like a spectrum, right? I think everybody, everything has kind of been done under the sun in the NBA.
01:27:12
It's kind of just taking pieces from that spectrum that put on different parts of the board.
01:27:16
Um, we got market here, but he might be frozen.
01:27:20
Uh, was like, half.
01:27:22
Yeah, he's proposing, but yeah, I don't know what, uh, but yeah, You guys have anything else? I mean, that's all really had e I have something.
01:27:33
I don't know if you guys heard it that the Lakers filed for getting lose, then contract off the books.
01:27:43
Did you guys hear it? Lol Deng was still on the books.
01:27:46
He's still he's supposed to be.
01:27:49
For the next two seasons, he's supposed to hit him.
01:27:51
They supposed tohave a hit on the salary cap.
01:27:54
And they filed that because he has a career ending injury that they want that salary off the books.
01:28:02
But after you know them stretching his contract, he played 22 games in Minnesota. Motives.
01:28:10
So how are they even, you know, if the n ba gives them that salary release on the catfish I'm gonna be, bro.
01:28:20
I'm gonna be mad.
01:28:21
Eso So they amnesty them? Yeah, they amnesty them.
01:28:25
And they paid him years, right? He went somewhere else. He went to Minnesota.
01:28:29
He played 22 games for tips.
01:28:32
And, you know, a year later, after the season, he you know the Lakers, you know, want the file, the paperwork for for them to, you know, get off that salary.
01:28:44
Cap it.
01:28:45
So So let me eso when a player when a When the players amnesty.
01:28:50
Right? So I am a steel player.
01:28:52
Yeah, he Oh, yeah.
01:28:56
They just wanted the salary cap off there because they're saying that he has a career ending injury s.
01:29:04
So let me ask you, though, if Okay, say I gotta paying $5 million a year for the next five years, you pick him up for two million? Yeah.
01:29:14
Do I still have to pay him five million or you know the difference.
01:29:19
But the salary cap, it is still the right. Yeah.
01:29:23
So what I'm wondering is what I'm wondering is because he can't play for another team because he's a career ending injury and he can't play for another team.
01:29:33
Is that why they're saying, Look, there's not a chance that he could go for another team and we pay the difference? So, you know, clear it off.
01:29:42
I mean, he's still going to get his money.
01:29:45
Yeah, you know that.
01:29:46
That's why that's why I'm saying, but you know, for me, I don't care if he gets the money.
01:29:50
If he doesn't write, he probably is gonna get it.
01:29:53
My problem is, if the n b a allows them, you know, to get his contract off the books, and you know why they wanted right? Because they can't afford to get anyone on the Lakers roster now because they're gonna be capped out if they signed a D.
01:30:10
And you know, Rhonda is gonna leave.
01:30:12
KCP is looking for a deal, so they're gonna lose plenty of that, That's what.
01:30:17
Yeah.
01:30:20
Rhonda.
01:30:21
Yeah, he's not extending, so, you know, he's looking for a deal.
01:30:24
KCB is rumored to looking be looking around the league for a deal.
01:30:29
So he got two guys, you know, everybody is going to come back, right? But, you know, Dion, Waiters J.
01:30:35
R.
01:30:36
Smith, those guys who were only pickups for the season.
01:30:39
So they're gonna lose.
01:30:40
You know, plenty of those guys from the rotation that we're playing minutes and, you know, and you know that that's why I'm gonna I'm gonna be mad if they allow them.
01:30:49
Because that's another you know, a Teesta mid level exception party, right, for six million.
01:30:54
And you know how LeBron's gonna praise those guys just to get him on the squad? Okay, just take 2.5 million.
01:31:00
We're gonna win a chip.
01:31:01
No.
01:31:02
So that's three guys for for that salary, But I'm not going for it.
01:31:07
Yeah, we discuss Rondo on the big freeze.
01:31:10
He, by the way, Big freezing.
01:31:11
We have an ongoing, uh, Siri's where he's building up.
01:31:14
How to build a championship team were like Year two or something like that.
01:31:18
But we did bring upbringing Rondo to the Knicks.
01:31:21
Now he has a championship.
01:31:23
He's probably sick LeBron at this point.
01:31:24
So e no Simms face lit up when Rondo Because if I go, I mean, if you know, he'll probably go back to the Lakers.
01:31:33
But if they couldn't afford him or something happened, I would love to have him come to the next.
01:31:37
I was the one when we were looking for a free agent point guards.
01:31:41
I mentioned Rondo.
01:31:43
So you know, and you know he's he's one of the best guys.
01:31:46
And if he wouldn't command that much that much money.
01:31:50
So I was talking from the next again, probably even over frame Two guys, two guys out.
01:31:56
I wanted Valley in terms of veterans.
01:31:58
Stopgap, uh, for three guys, CP three, that you're gonna be tough, Dragic.
01:32:03
But he got hurt and he might be trying to go back to the heat unless they bring you on a somehow, um, and Pat Riley did mention, You know, obviously you know, I'm happy to be Bob LA, but anyway, to improve the team whose give me interpret anyway, we don't know.
01:32:16
But if they bring back, they bring a guy like Dr Johnson got like Dr Might be on the back burner.
01:32:22
But that's one guy I definitely wanted for the Knicks and then Rondo.
01:32:24
Uh, I'm not sure, Rhonda complained major minutes.
01:32:27
I mean, he fit perfectly that make a scene because when he was actually hitting threes, but he doesn't have to play 37 minutes a night.
01:32:33
But if you could split time with a guy like Frank or whoever we draft say, even we got the guy that killing Hayes have a guy like Rondo baby department, and Rondo is a own court eking Rondo's no nonsense.
01:32:44
I think that's I think he worked well with Thibodeau.
01:32:47
I think Thibodeau you know Thibodeau's you know, Thibodeau smiles like a freaking video game character.
01:32:52
I could see him loving a guy like Rondo, the court, who can command where guys need to be excellent past.
01:32:58
I mean, Rondo is a secondly good facilitator.
01:33:01
Secondly, good facilitator, Um, you get a guy like killing Hayes, who, you know, I have this argument with a dude on Twitter named Rick.
01:33:09
War is actually SportsCastr to, uh, he's he's on crazy is kind of, uh, and he loves killing Jesus Killing hates me.
01:33:17
Needs a lot of the pick and roll, right? He's not a guy who I think is so he could create a little space to shoot a shot, but he's not perfect in that regard.
01:33:25
So he needs a lot of Rondo came in and showed him how to basically, you know, how to catch guys in the mist up, not just a step back and shoot a shot.
01:33:32
But how to drive, run a pick and roll with your big man when it passed up to the room and when it passed upto, I think he'd be.
01:33:39
I think he'd be astronomically great for the Knicks.
01:33:42
And if that means that you have to give him a big contract for the next two years, I'm not saying a huge maximum.
01:33:46
You give him more than what the Lakers are offering.
01:33:48
He already has a championship.
01:33:50
Yeah, I mean, why not be the guy to kind of slowly bringing the mixed back into prominence.
01:33:55
Um, you know, try to sell them on the next time, make the players.
01:33:59
This year, I don't think what happened, but again, if you get a guy him killing Hayes, Mitch RJ on the in the east? Yeah.
01:34:06
I mean, and Rondeau said he has that.
01:34:07
I think Ronald were a nine or 10 team with maybe a few weeks ago, we could get to that spot.
01:34:11
I think you might see, you know, some of the best one Rondo.
01:34:14
So I mean, asked me.
01:34:15
It might be wishful thinking, but I think Ron would be e think it's definitely wishful thinking.
01:34:20
But, you know, when If you would if you would get a guy like Randall on the squad.
01:34:25
Yo, Julius Randle is gonna have toe.
01:34:29
You know, Rob was gonna come out of respect.
01:34:32
You know, he has a champion with the Lakers with the Celtics.
01:34:36
He's not, you know, ah, young guy anymore.
01:34:38
But he would sort up and, you know, put the team in, uh, in their lanes. Definitely.
01:34:45
You got the coach that could deal with him? Yeah.
01:34:50
I think he didn't want kids on the on the Celtics when when Rondo was winning. Chip.
01:34:56
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
01:34:59
Okay, s So you've got the coach that cannon knows how to deal with them? That that would be great for the Knicks.
01:35:06
I think e on Twitter that they have a relationship.
01:35:13
Yeah, I like it goes, it goes, it goes, Josh.
01:35:19
So wait, you're like Rondo, even though you can't You shot on the playoffs? Uh, better than what he shot before.
01:35:24
And I think about Rondo.
01:35:25
Even if he couldn't shoot his point guard play would elevate our team, right? Astronomically.
01:35:31
E think, Joshua just want to find jobs.
01:35:34
What is your What is the point? I don't get what that is.
01:35:38
Is this the Josh? That that's what else on the UK? Yeah.
01:35:43
Yeah, that's Josh.
01:35:44
Yeah, that's Jock.
01:35:46
Yeah, Josh, Josh, Josh is trolling us.
01:35:50
That's right.
01:35:52
Yeah, a question.
01:35:53
Yeah, I know.
01:35:54
It's not a question.
01:35:55
We know you're trying to talk like you wanna Kyrie.
01:35:57
Irving could shoot better than than Rondo.
01:35:58
Would you want Kyra over on the Knicks? I know you, like, is talented.
01:36:03
A flat earth.
01:36:04
Come on, man.
01:36:06
Come on.
01:36:07
But you know, again, you know, salute to everybody that came in guys like Hit subscribe.
01:36:12
All that goodness you got.
01:36:14
You got Sim mbk front stoop, and you got three b l e don't know.
01:36:20
They cover that Giants game yesterday, uh, covered it last night.
01:36:24
Where your boy, uh, Daniel Jones.
01:36:28
Josh, Josh, Josh came in last night.
01:36:31
Josh came into the show last night.
01:36:33
Uh, yeah.
01:36:34
Well, I'm rooting for the Giants because you don't need you to take care of lawns.
01:36:38
Y'all literally are in the contention for the playoffs.
01:36:41
You have one win.
01:36:42
Yeah, this is N F C.
01:36:45
East is trash Way would have won if we were the one.
01:36:52
We would have been in second place High Dallas and Onley in second place because we lost to Dallas.
01:36:58
If we would have one.
01:36:59
Would have been a second place, e like Like we really blew a chance.
01:37:05
We really blew a chance because we played Philly Way.
01:37:08
Just played Philly, and we should have won the game, right? And then, um, we play, uh, way play next.
01:37:18
Can't even think, but Washington Washington way play.
01:37:21
So we play.
01:37:23
Uh, now who do we play before we play someone before? So way played Monday night we play e.
01:37:34
Can't even think who it is.
01:37:35
Your next game, the next game.
01:37:38
You play the bucks.
01:37:39
You guys get bucks.
01:37:40
That's right.
01:37:41
We play the bucks Monday night, right? So maybe, you know, maybe, you know, that was gonna happen to the with the Rams, and we were right there.
01:37:52
The Rams, we got way.
01:37:55
Rams are Rams.
01:37:56
Are there? Are there like a pretty A pretty team? That's hollow.
01:38:02
They could lose that.
01:38:03
E Bay bucks The way I know Aaron Rodgers, there's no way knows.
01:38:12
E Think the bucks have the number one defense.
01:38:15
We'll find out.
01:38:17
Listen, the Giants have been playing.
01:38:19
They played well against everybody except for San Francisco.
01:38:22
Not well, they've been competitive.
01:38:24
I say that competitive, but we had a I had a marked down as a loss to the bucks anyway, right, But no, no, no, no, no, no.
01:38:35
Listen, listen, listen, listen. Listen.
01:38:37
They blew their chance.
01:38:39
They had it against Philadelphia.
01:38:40
They should have one, right? So the next They had four games that they played Philly, Tampa Bay, Washington, and then Philly.
01:38:49
If they were the beat, Philly lost Example.
01:38:52
Bay then able to play Washington and Philly again they had.
01:38:56
This is a stretch where they had their chance to take a hold of the NFC East and they blew it in that game verse Philly In Philly, they had an 11 point lead in the fourth quarter.
01:39:10
They blow it in Philly.
01:39:13
You know what I'm saying? If they would have won that game, there's a good chance that they beat Washington again.
01:39:18
There's a good chance that they could beat Philly, right? They would have had a strong hold on the NFC East.
01:39:24
They would have played Dallas the last game of the season, and then, you know, they blew it.
01:39:31
They blew that game.
01:39:33
That game right there, they blew it.
01:39:34
So so is happening.
01:39:36
Grim.
01:39:37
The greatest Giants player of all time.
01:39:38
Now, how do you guys feel about you? Should e when I don't want you guys take care alone.
01:39:48
So I need you got Evan in from 36.
01:39:50
You got that ball, bro? I say I say hates.
01:39:54
Um, Josh don't like me that nobody likes him.
01:39:56
Nobody likes him.
01:39:57
E o.
01:39:59
I like I'm cool with him.
01:40:01
You know what I'm saying? I mean, I'm upset E because this dude when Randall was paralytic ballerina crap, it's not like I am a super duper Randall fan.
01:40:19
I just think that people came down harshly on them.
01:40:22
E am a frankly Latina fan.
01:40:26
Hold up.
01:40:27
Have you ever have you ever met in your life? Can be honest.
01:40:34
No, I think this is my guys e met Frank.
01:40:41
I met Mitch.
01:40:42
I met Kevin Knox because it's the same Sim.
01:40:45
Well, I guess you don't like Mitch because this the same thing that had Mitch is former agent, come up to the sky.
01:40:53
Whatever the Sky Bridge.
01:40:55
You said I want to talk about that E.
01:41:01
