00:00:38
Um, right now it looks like we don't have any liable viewer.
00:00:41
I'm just seeing how the sports here, just trying to get the get it going here.
00:00:45
Oh, and I could do trivia or a pole or right here.

00:00:53
That's all we need.
00:00:55
Okay, so let's get going here.
00:00:57
Let's see what I'm just trying to get a get a bead on how this is going here.
00:01:02
It's kind of kind of a fun little little thing here.
00:01:08
Okay. All right.
00:01:09
I can share that.
00:01:10
I can embed up, and maybe we'll share to Twitter just say, Hey, I'm on.
00:01:30
Okay.
00:01:31
Yeah. So this is kind of a kind of a cool little thing here.
00:01:33
Okay? I like it.
00:01:37
I like it.
00:01:38
I think I think I think there's something here for sure.
00:01:40
Okay.
00:01:41
So anyway, I don't think anything in the sports world really happened today.
00:01:45
If I'm mistaken, then I apologize.
00:01:48
I just got woke up from a depression app, so, you know, a little out of it.
00:01:53
Um, let's just Let's let's take a take a look here.
00:01:57
Let's check out some headlines.
00:01:59
Let's check some **** out.
00:02:00
You know, I can swear on this, I hope, right? If not, then I apologize.
00:02:06
But we're gonna do it anyway.
00:02:08
Okay.
00:02:10
So Oh, there's a college football game going on its central Michigan vs Ohio.
00:02:14
Who cares? Um, okay.
00:02:19
All right.
00:02:20
So, yeah, there's some headlines here.
00:02:22
Okay? There's some headlines here for sure.
00:02:28
Okay, So top headlines on ESPN read the following Lions Place quarterback Matthew Stafford on co vid 19 list again.
00:02:39
I wasn't aware he was on the list.
00:02:40
Uh, er, but, um okay, Interesting.
00:02:57
Okay.
00:03:03
All right.
00:03:04
Okay.
00:03:05
Tryingto I'm not super educated on the Matthew Stafford situation, So not going to comment too much on that.
00:03:14
Uh, if anybody else has some insights out there that could enlighten me, tell me why.
00:03:18
This is a big story.
00:03:19
I guess he's been on the list before, So he might be, I'm guessing.
00:03:24
Probably the first NFL player to be on the list.
00:03:28
Um, twice, I should say.
00:03:31
But, you know, um, maybe the chats open.
00:03:35
Guys, Go ahead. Enlighten me.
00:03:36
Why, This is a big deal.
00:03:37
Um, I think I think just the story is that he's probably like I said, the first player to be on there on the Kobe 19 list twice.
00:03:46
So, uh, if he's not, I'm mistaken.
00:03:48
It looks like we got some.
00:03:50
We got my guy, Coop 30 for us.
00:03:52
Here.
00:03:53
What's up, my guy? Coop, you know, you you are.
00:03:56
Looks like you have Ah, a person in that picture with you.
00:04:00
Um, you love sports.
00:04:01
You love your chiefs.
00:04:02
Your father three.
00:04:03
You love working on cars and you can't wait for the chiefs to win the Super Bowl.
00:04:08
I don't know if you knew this, but they want it last year.
00:04:10
Coop, I guess you can't wait again.
00:04:14
S o.
00:04:15
I hope I hope I hope your hopes and dreams come true and that the Chiefs win the Super Bowl again.
00:04:21
Um, so the kind of the sports thing that was on my mind today I was listening to my hands look fat.
00:04:28
That's all I care about.
00:04:29
I don't think so.
00:04:30
Um, the sports news that was kind of on my mind today.
00:04:35
I was listening to the Bill Simmons podcast with Ryan or Sill.
00:04:40
Oh, because those guys air unbelievably good at podcasting and they opened their discussion by talking about the NBA season.
00:04:50
What it's how shaping up to be when they're gonna come back and play next year, because that's going to come up a lot faster than I think.
00:04:59
I think anyone has realized.
00:05:02
And there's some interesting arguments on both sides.
00:05:06
The players.
00:05:07
They're saying, Hey, we need more time.
00:05:09
Let's, uh let's try to start this around Martin Luther King Day in January, Whereas the owners were like, uh, no, we're not gonna ****ing do that.
00:05:17
We're going to start in December.
00:05:19
We're gonna play 72 games and we're gonna try to get things back to normal.
00:05:24
Normal.
00:05:25
2021 2022 So, um, that's, um, that that was the situation.
00:05:34
That was what Simmons and Arcila we're talking about.
00:05:37
And there were I mean, there were some interesting arguments, and I think I think I kind I think this side.
00:05:45
I guess you could say that Brazil Oh, and Simmons were taking definitely was skewing more towards the owners standpoint, and they made some really good points that I wasn't aware of.
00:05:56
Essentially, the big dealio is, um, for those of you who don't know, let me catch you up.
00:06:02
So, like I said, the players want to start a little bit later.
00:06:06
They want to start in January, and they want to play about a 50 game schedule, whereas, um, the owners were like, No, we're not gonna do that.
00:06:15
We're gonna We're gonna start as soon as we possibly can.
00:06:18
We're gonna start December 22nd, and we're gonna play 72 games.
00:06:22
Uh, that way we can recoup a lot of money that we are going to lose, uh, for sure.
00:06:28
And then that will give us a better timeline to get back to normal. Normal.
00:06:32
When? When things start shaping up.
00:06:35
Uh, in 2021 20 for the 2021 2022 seasons.
00:06:39
So I hope I have my timeline around on that.
00:06:43
So there's gonna be 2 21 22 seasons.
00:06:47
No, there's not.
00:06:48
Okay, it's confusing.
00:06:50
No eso This would be the 2021 c.
00:06:52
Okay, Got it.
00:06:53
Okay, 20.
00:06:54
So they want to get back to normal for the 2021 2022 season.
00:06:57
So, um, yeah, I think I mean, if you're I mean, I get what the players are saying.
00:07:05
Like they feel like they need more time because the season just ended.
00:07:09
But here's the reality.
00:07:11
The season really just ended for on Lee.
00:07:15
24 guys for Onley, the guys who were playing in the NBA finals it on Lee just in it for those guys.
00:07:22
So if I mean, obviously, if you're either on the Laker, if your guys on the Lakers or the heat, you're thinking okay, man, I just got john plan.
00:07:31
You hardly gave me a time to catch my breath.
00:07:34
It's like Okay, well, you know, Sorry.
00:07:36
E mean, you've got to play in the NBA finals, and that's I'm sorry that this is the consequences.
00:07:41
You gotta start again pretty soon.
00:07:43
So you know, I'm sorry, but we gotta We gotta get going here.
00:07:48
We gotta We gotta get things back to normal.
00:07:51
Um, I don't know.
00:07:53
That's that's That's the side I would take if I was.
00:07:57
If I was an owner, I would say, you know, like we got it.
00:08:00
We gotta get things as close to normal as we can.
00:08:03
And the Onley way to do that is Thio start in December.
00:08:10
That seems to be the only that seems to be the only way to go.
00:08:13
And from what I can see on this ESPN headline, it says sources players, player reps expected to approve December 20 seconds Start Thio MBA season.
00:08:24
So it looks like the players are going to agree with the owners and approve thesis season beginning on 22nd and lasting 22 games long.
00:08:37
So let me just quickly skimmed the article here.
00:08:42
The national players decisions taken a lot of very team player representative sources of the SPS, So escrow figures issue their money, money, money.
00:08:52
Um, Okay.
00:08:55
Cool.
00:08:56
Okay, So Okay, So here's the thing.
00:09:02
Um, so I mean, it sounds from what I could understand I don't I don't really understand what escrow is.
00:09:09
I've heard that term a lot.
00:09:11
Like for people who buy houses a Z.
00:09:14
You can see I rent a room. I have.
00:09:16
I'm not anywhere near through the level of dating to buy a house quite yet, but seems like eso someone.
00:09:25
There's so much we could hit me in the comments and enlighten me as to what that means Be great.
00:09:31
Um, but, um, what I'm what I'm gathering here is just looking at this article and having listened to a little bit of the Bill Simmons podcast today, um, the league recently hold teams that 40% of basketball related income could be lost without gate received the season S o.
00:10:13
I mean, and they locked because of the what you call it because of the pandemic losing the last third or so of the season they lost about the MBA's basketball related income was down $1.
00:10:28
5 billion last season.
00:10:31
So they know they're gonna lose money.
00:10:34
It's just an issue of they want to lose as little money as possible.
00:10:39
Um, so I thought that was that was enlightening.
00:10:44
Um, so let me Sorry, let me shoot out a Twitter link here trying out a new sing on sports caster.
00:11:02
Check it out.
00:11:03
Okay.
00:11:04
I gotta say, I think the SportsCastr is actually kind of a good idea.
00:11:08
And it seems like they have, like, some some monetization options that air cool.
00:11:14
I mean, let's be honest here.
00:11:15
Any of us who are doing a sports show from our from our ba*****t or wherever we find ourselves on SportsCastr, none of us are gonna make it in this industry.
00:11:25
That's I'm sorry.
00:11:26
That's no.
00:11:27
That's just the harsh truth of it.
00:11:29
We're all just losers at this point, right? I mean, nobody.
00:11:33
Nobody on this platform is gonna get discovered.
00:11:35
Nobody's going t o make a fruitful living, but it is still pretty cool.
00:11:41
Um, and I can dig it while I'm here for sure.
00:11:45
Um, I am I still alive? I think I'm still alive for me.
00:11:49
Hold on something.
00:11:50
I think something screwy happened.
00:11:51
Here.
00:11:52
Let me check this out.
00:11:53
Let me just check it out of my phone and I'm gonna keep talking just in K.
00:11:59
It's Moon River.
00:12:02
Wider little mile.
00:12:05
Okay, well, let's see.
00:12:07
I don't think I'm live let me see.
00:12:09
It's loading right now in my life.
00:12:17
I'm not sure if I'm life.
00:12:21
Yeah, okay.
00:12:22
I can see my finger.
00:12:23
Okay.
00:12:24
I am life.
00:12:25
I don't know where my screen is.
00:12:27
Um, Don't know why I can't see myself.
00:12:29
Whatever.
00:12:30
You know what I mean? We're learning.
00:12:32
We're here.
00:12:33
Um, so can I make myself feel life twice? And I think I want to do that.
00:12:39
I pushed this here.
00:12:42
Okay, I think like the window I was using, uh, closed for some reason.
00:12:50
But that doesn't matter.
00:12:51
I guess I can still look at me.
00:12:52
I mean, I can clearly see that I'm on waving here.
00:12:55
Hello? Seems like that what I like about this seems like the Leighton see is pretty good.
00:12:59
So I hope I hope people can hear me amusing.
00:13:03
My, uh, sound mixer here.
00:13:06
I've got some music playing my own ear, not letting that go out over the air for copyright issues.
00:13:13
So I think it's working.
00:13:15
I think it's not, you know, go **** yourself.
00:13:17
Appears All right.
00:13:19
So, anyway, 13 people watching Wanna thank everybody who's watching? Um, this is just kind of Ah, kind of Ah, an experiment I guess you could say I wanted I just wanted to see how toe how this what he called this, uh, SportsCastr thing worked.
00:13:36
So it seems like it's pretty cool.
00:13:38
I can dig it.
00:13:39
So how about for the next section of the show, we're gonna call it going on reddit and seeing what's going on there? Um, Hill.
00:13:50
Okay, let's go to do Do do Do do.
00:13:56
Okay.
00:14:00
Okay.
00:14:01
So Okay, so and then there's some other.
00:14:11
There's some other.
00:14:12
Okay, so here we go.
00:14:13
I'm gonna go to the Read A MBA page here.
00:14:16
See that We've got some more stuff here.
00:14:18
Okay, So I'm listening to the entirety of the Bill Simmons podcast.
00:14:22
I probably was misleading in that, um, so I Here's the interesting thing.
00:14:27
Um, okay, so according so on the podcast Brazil.
00:14:35
Oh, there.
00:14:36
I mean, Brazil.
00:14:37
Oh, and Simmons.
00:14:38
We're talking about guys who could be moving around in the next few days, weeks, months to come in the MBA and a couple of guys came up.
00:14:47
They talked about how Gordon Hayward probably once out of Boston, which would be funny for a lot of jazz fans out there.
00:14:55
I think That's really I'm sure.
00:14:57
I think Boston probably I would imagine Boston would be eager to get him out of there because he's definitely not worth what they're paying him.
00:15:05
Um, so I would be interesting to see what kind of value that you get in return.
00:15:10
I think like to get rid of a guy like that.
00:15:13
I think to find a willing trade partner, you'd have to probably throw in like a really, like a good asset, like a first round pick to get someone thio take on that kind of money.
00:15:24
Um, but I mean which I mean, it isn't like a huge loss.
00:15:28
I mean, I mean, the Celtics, they're like a borderline top tier team where, like giving up a first round pick isn't that isn't that detrimental? It's gonna be in the late twenties, so, um, it's not It's not like giving away, like like a lottery pick for sure.
00:15:43
So I think that's probably something they're gonna really think about doing, uh, to get rid of Gordon Hayward.
00:15:51
But another one? That's kind of interesting.
00:15:53
Uh, says here according Thio Ryan Marcelo, it's the worst kept secret in the N b. A.
00:15:58
That Devin Booker already wants out of Phoenix.
00:16:01
Um, so let's see here.
00:16:03
We're going onto Reddit.
00:16:05
MBA is to see this post this, um, sons reporter.
00:16:10
Uh, Gamba Duro.
00:16:13
I don't know if he works for the sons or if he works for, like, an outlet over there in Arizona.
00:16:19
Response. This is 100%.
00:16:21
Not true in retort.
00:16:23
Thio.
00:16:24
What? Russell a was saying Book is happy in Phoenix, Excited for the season.
00:16:27
Loves how they finished in the bubble.
00:16:29
Excited about free agency.
00:16:31
Not one time Has he ever told anyone he wanted out? Don't listen to this garbage strong take from the from, uh, there's there, like someone who's worked in media, I can tell you there's, like, a huge underlying rivalry between guys who work in, um, local media and guys were on the national level, like the guy like they both resent each other a lot for different reasons.
00:16:57
Obviously, Like my my feeling is that, like, the national guys, look down.
00:17:01
The local guys like you wanna be where I am, but a lot of the local guys probably think that you know, the national people are just blowhards, you know, just pretty boys who, um, who aren't as dialed into the So what's really going on on the microscope? I guess you could say of their markets, which is probably, you know, both could be true.
00:17:23
Both could totally be true.
00:17:25
But, um, here's here's the thing.
00:17:28
Um, I don't know anything about Devin Booker's relationship with the sons.
00:17:34
Um, what I do know is that team is incredibly close.
00:17:38
Um, that was made apparent when that girl was on the note jumper podcast and talked about how she gave oral *** Thio like the whole team at the same time.
00:17:49
I mean, you've got to be a pretty close knit group to do that.
00:17:54
Well, I'm not gonna get into that because I was disgusting.
00:17:56
But anyway, here's what Here's here's Here's what I would say about the Devin Booker situation like, obviously, they had a really strong showing in the bubble.
00:18:05
They might undefeated there.
00:18:06
They won all eight of their What do they call him? The seating games.
00:18:11
They just missed the they, however, to get into the playoffs.
00:18:16
They needed help, and they didn't get that help, so they were left on the outside of the playoffs.
00:18:20
So who? Who? You know, whatever.
00:18:22
But they still played really well in the bubble.
00:18:26
Um, so I mean, here's what I would say if I'm the general manager of the Phoenix sense, I don't know his name.
00:18:35
Sons GM.
00:18:40
The general manager is James Jones, who was a member of the Cavs Championship Championship teams.
00:18:47
Um, e I mean, so he's a player, right? He's got, um, he's got a playing pedigree.
00:18:55
I mean, I'm sure he gets what it's like to be on like, ****y Team and want to be on a good team.
00:19:00
It's great.
00:19:01
He only just retired from the MBA in 2017.
00:19:05
Hey, is it Z kind of a big promotion for for him? What was he doing before that? It's almost he was.
00:19:16
He was named the vice president of basketball operations for the Sons.
00:19:20
Uh, like as he retired, that was that was his.
00:19:24
That was like he got that job right out of the gate and the news named the general manager.
00:19:29
Um, about a year later, eso and he's made.
00:19:36
He's made a couple not great trades.
00:19:40
Um, well, I mean, I don't say one decent trade in one bad trade.
00:19:46
Hey, traded Trevor Resa for Kelly Uber and December 2018.
00:19:50
That's okay, I think.
00:19:52
Um, because Reese is like, 50 years old.
00:19:55
Uber is young.
00:19:56
They're probably pretty comparable players.
00:19:59
But then Ryan Anderson for Taylor Johnson.
00:20:03
I mean, we'll just call that one a washes.
00:20:05
Those guys, those guys both had their, uh, moment in the sun.
00:20:09
But that Z that's been affected.
00:20:11
I mean, they're they're pretty much those guys.
00:20:13
If Ryan Anderson is not out of league by now, he certainly will be soon.
00:20:18
Yeah, he's not a leader.
00:20:19
He didn't play last year.
00:20:20
Um, yeah.
00:20:24
So Ryan Anderson that league.
00:20:26
So I mean, he treated a guy who's now out of the league for a guy who should be out of the league soon and is now with the Brooklyn Nets.
00:20:33
Taylor Johnson.
00:20:34
So those were like those air James Jones.
00:20:36
Two big moves with the Phoenix Suns.
00:20:38
Anyway, um, here's what I would do if I'm him and I'm addressing the Devin Booker situation.
00:20:44
Okay, I would say, Okay, dude, I get it.
00:20:47
Like, uh, our French is kind of a mess.
00:20:50
Our owner, whose name is Robert Sarver server.
00:20:54
I think It's kind of a dip****.
00:20:57
Um, we've been we've been pretty relevant.
00:21:02
Robert Sarver.
00:21:03
Yeah. Pretty irrelevant for a few years.
00:21:06
I understand your your budding superstar.
00:21:09
You probably want to get out of here, right? So anyway, I would say, Okay, let's get started this year, right? Let's we finished the bubble really strong.
00:21:23
We finished on really good high note.
00:21:26
Give me who give me.
00:21:30
Give me freaking Give me a month.
00:21:33
Give me maybe maybe, like, two months.
00:21:36
We'll see where we are if we're not.
00:21:39
And if we're not showing room for improvement Room Army.
00:21:42
If we're not showing improvement, Um, let's let's you know, let's get you Let's get you somewhere else.
00:21:53
Look at Devon Booker's contract situation to see what that I mean.
00:21:58
He said he was excited about free agency.
00:21:59
Let's see what that means.
00:22:01
Um, it looks like he's, uh so he signed.
00:22:07
So he's That's weird that he said he was excited about free agency because he's not really close to being a free agent.
00:22:15
Hey, signed a five year rookie Max scale rookie scale max extension in 2018.
00:22:21
That's gonna lock him up through 2024.
00:22:24
So I.
00:22:25
He's already one of the higher paid guys in the NBA.
00:22:27
Looks like he's gonna be made.
00:22:30
I mean, obviously, it's gonna This is all gonna be the what the exact number is.
00:22:33
What they actually end up making is gonna depend a lot on when the season starts and what the escrow situation all that.
00:22:39
But it's already making pretty close to $30 million a year.
00:22:41
So that's definitely in the upper echelon of NBA players.
00:22:46
So I don't understand what that was about.
00:22:49
Excited about free agents.
00:22:50
Or maybe he's excited about what what his team could accomplish in free agency.
00:22:54
I think I think that's what I think that's that Felix reporter was saying.
00:22:57
So let's look at the Phoenix Sons Free Agency Outlook here.
00:23:07
Let's look, let's look at that. I'll tell you what I think.
00:23:09
Um, looks like there's a son's blogged here that, um, has some ideas with the sons could be doing looking here at SP Nations Bright Side of the Sun, looking at who they think the sons could target in free agency, um, Internet meal.
00:23:32
So it looks like, I think, um, so the sons, the sons have like they're gonna have, like, $18.
00:23:41
9 million to play with.
00:23:43
Should the should the cap remain at $190 million Right, So that's they're gonna have quite a bit.
00:23:48
That's six most in the NBA to play with the first most it's gonna be the Hawks.
00:23:53
They have $44 million place.
00:23:54
I think the Hawks in a really good place.
00:23:56
Uh, I think I think I think they're gonna be a team to watch out for next year. For sure.
00:24:01
Um, the Knicks have $42 million but they're gonna find a way toe Thio.
00:24:08
**** that up.
00:24:09
Um e mean, the who would have been the biggest prize of the free agency period would definitely would have been Anthony Davis, but he's already, um, he's already made it clear that he's going to resign of the Lakers, so he's off the market.
00:24:25
Detroit has $32 million.
00:24:27
Um, what is there to say about the Detroit right now? It wasn't a saying.
00:24:34
I don't know.
00:24:35
They traded, um, they traded drummond, um, Thio calves.
00:24:43
Let's stand topic.
00:24:45
Maybe we'll get to that later.
00:24:46
So the the heat also have 20.
00:24:48
No, $21.
00:24:49
9 million in cash.
00:24:51
Face.
00:24:52
That's nuts that a team that was just in the NBA Finals is gonna have that much that much money to play with the off season, Charlotte's got $19 million and the number three overall pick People are saying they they might want to move up.
00:25:05
And then Phoenix has the six most, uh, six largest amount of money to play with that 19 at just less than $19 million.
00:25:14
$18.
00:25:15
9 million.
00:25:16
So, um, so So it looks so Let's, I mean, $18.
00:25:26
9 million like a good a good target with this block is saying, and I think that I think they're in a good I think this block is right on.
00:25:34
I think, um, looking at a guy like Jeremy Grant could command that kind of money.
00:25:41
Um, he made $9 million last year with the Nuggets.
00:25:46
Um, so yeah, so I But, uh, let me let me look at Jeremy Grants.
00:26:00
He's gonna be one of the more sought after free agents this year because, you know, I thought he played really well in the playoffs for the Nuggets.
00:26:08
E think he's really versatile.
00:26:09
I think he's a good up and down guy.
00:26:11
Um, so he's, uh he's so he's got the player option.
00:26:19
So he could He could take the guaranteed money, take $9.
00:26:23
3 million and running back with the Nuggets, Or he could hit the open market and give it another shot.
00:26:29
Uh, give us get and give making more money a chance, which I think he almost certainly would.
00:26:34
It doesn't matter if that would be a better situation for him.
00:26:37
You know, Probably he'll he'll be asked to take on a bigger role, for sure.
00:26:41
Um, looks like people who are interested obviously are gonna be The heat could be really interested.
00:26:49
But the Sun's Oeiras Well, so that would be kind of an interesting pick up.
00:26:54
The sons have have a pretty decent little team there.
00:26:57
I mean, there there's some guys that I that I like, um, uber is not bad, and he's on a pretty affordable contract.
00:27:05
Michael, Bridget.
00:27:06
Michael Bridges is a good three and D guy, um, let's see, um, Cameron Johnson's he's and DeAndre and has has picked it up.
00:27:17
He's gotten to be a little bit more, a little bit more of what people was we're expecting out of him.
00:27:24
When he was drafted first overall a couple years ago, I think I'm still blown away that the sons didn't pick Luca with the first overall pick back in the 2018 draft because I thought that was a slam dunk.
00:27:38
I thought I thought there was no way they weren't gonna pick Luca because he's, uh, he's from Slovakia.
00:27:44
E mean, if he's I'm pretty sure he's from Slovakia, right? It's from one of those weird countries.
00:27:51
Slovenia, Slovenia.
00:27:52
Sorry e.
00:27:53
I mean, who Who cares? You know, Slovenia.
00:27:56
Slovakia? Um so But I thought for sure Luca was going to get picked by the Sun's because at that time, the sons had just hired.
00:28:05
I'm blinking his name.
00:28:07
He was an assistant with the jazz, uh, York ACOG off as their head coach, who was like, pretty much the god of Slovenian basketball.
00:28:15
He's like one of the bigger figures there.
00:28:17
I thought for sure that would have been a really good, really good, um, fit for both of them.
00:28:23
But to me, it just seems like e mean.
00:28:27
It's obvious that you know the Sun's management wanted Thio Bank wanted Thio get 18 being that he played at the University of Arizona, which is in Tucson, Obviously, but, you know, he also grew up in Phoenix.
00:28:41
So I think that was kind of what they were thinking that, you know, he was obviously the best fair in college basketball that year as well as being the hometown kid.
00:28:49
Um, that's I mean, that's that's essentially a recipe for for going in the opposition every time.
00:28:57
So I mean that that's not surprising.
00:28:59
That wasn't surprising, but I think they definitely should have.
00:29:02
I think the sons should have taken Luca, but anyway, that's neither here nor there.
00:29:06
I was talking about Devin Booker what he should do.
00:29:10
And, like I said, if I'm James Jones, if I'm the general manager, I say I go.
00:29:14
I go to my say, Listen, let's see what happens in free agency.
00:29:18
Let's see where we are coming out of the gates.
00:29:21
Um, I think we could have a good thing cooking here.
00:29:24
I think I think we have a chance of maybe making the playoffs this year, and once we make the playoffs, um, you know That's where things could start to look up, you know? So ast faras the future outlook for the for the team.
00:29:37
So I was like, Get let's just see, let's just see what happens.
00:29:40
Let's not Let's not do this before the season starts.
00:29:43
Let's certainly not do this before we see what we're what the team is gonna look like for sure.
00:29:49
So anyway, I thought that was kinda interesting.
00:29:52
The other The other thing, I So just talking about the N b A.
00:29:55
I'm gonna reset a little bit.
00:29:57
Obviously, a Z guys can see I'm here in Orlando.
00:30:00
That's where I live.
00:30:01
Right now.
00:30:02
I start My job is, um but I'm originally a Salt Lake guy.
00:30:07
I'm from Utah.
00:30:09
Uh, pretty much lifetime jazz fan, right? And I've I've been credential to work, and I mean, this is like a humble brag just qualifying myself as a jazz expert.
00:30:18
I've been credential to go covered jazz games for various, uh, local media outlets.
00:30:25
I've probably been to like over 100 jazz games with press pass.
00:30:29
Right.
00:30:30
So, uh, I'll say this about the jazz, right? I am willing to say this because I don't think anyone in the Salt Lake market is going to say this and I wanna be the one.
00:30:44
I wanna be the one to get this out on the record.
00:30:46
I think it's almost a guarantee.
00:30:52
Hold on.
00:30:53
Let me reset that. I didn't like the way that was sounding.
00:30:56
I think most people assume that since the Jazz have made the playoffs like five years in a row, they lost a very close seven games season.
00:31:11
Siris in the first round to the Nuggets, who then went on to play in the Western Conference finals.
00:31:18
That the Jazz are very close to getting to the next level.
00:31:23
I think they certainly are close to a level, but I think that's the level down.
00:31:28
I think I think this is gonna be a really challenging year for the Jazz, and I think it starts with what they do with Rudy Gobert in uh in the off season with with regards to his contract extension.
00:31:45
Um, I wrote a little bit about this on on my website notices sports dot com.
00:31:52
I personally think the Jazz should trade Rudy Gobert as quickly as possible.
00:31:57
I think I think that's the most prudent move for them this offseason.
00:32:01
I think that's the best way to take advantage of the fact that Donovan Mitchell is still somewhat enthused about playing there.
00:32:12
I just I think here's what I think I think and this is just one fans take.
00:32:19
If you disagree, you're by all means.
00:32:22
You know, let me know.
00:32:24
Um, I just think really strongly.
00:32:29
I feel this really strongly that that the Jazz have reached their ceiling with that core group being the Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert duo.
00:32:40
I think I think the Jazz, we're gonna have a really hard time this season.
00:32:48
And if they come out, slow out of the gates, which is entirely possible because they're gonna And I'll tell you why in just a second, um, it go bears, they're gonna It's going, They're going to appear mawr desperate.
00:33:03
Thio restart the button on the light on what they have and that will in turn lower the potential return that they could get on a trade for Rudy Gobert.
00:33:15
So I think they need to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak or strike before the iron gets much colder on trading Gobert and do that this offseason.
00:33:24
Okay, here's why.
00:33:26
Here's what I think about the jazz.
00:33:28
Okay, The Jazz are not nearly as good as their fans make them out to be.
00:33:38
I am somewhat of a member of jazz Twittersphere.
00:33:42
I kinda more I would say I'm definitely more of an outsider.
00:33:45
I kind of see what people are saying.
00:33:47
They a lot.
00:33:48
I think a lot of people in jazz Nation toe call themselves, um, think that the team is, like, really on the cusp of of being a contender.
00:33:58
And I don't see how that could be.
00:34:00
Um, I think the I mean I mean, people get so excited about the fact that they took Denver to seven games, right? That's great.
00:34:14
They still lost that.
00:34:15
Siri's, though, right? So, ultimately, I don't think it really matters how many games it took them for.
00:34:21
It took for them to lose that Syria's.
00:34:22
They still lost the Siri's um, they came.
00:34:27
They came into the playoffs as the sixth seed.
00:34:30
That means they were only three teams away from not making the playoffs entirely right and I just think that this year it's so likely that they're gonna be a lot more better teams in the Western Conference, Um, that they're gonna have a really hard time staying in the top eight.
00:34:53
I think I saw I heard somewhere I don't know if it's true, because I have seen with my own eyes, but I heard that right now Vegas is projecting the odds makers in Las Vegas air, projecting the Jazz to be the 10th best team in the Western Conference, which, if you're doing the math, um, would put them out of the top eight in playoffs.
00:35:13
However, I should.
00:35:14
I should say that it's seeming like they're gonna have a plan tournament for the for the final spots, and that might include the 10th spot.
00:35:22
So obviously, I'm speaking how things used to be.
00:35:26
The league's gonna look a lot different next year, for sure, as Faras like who's going to qualify for the playoffs because they're gonna have that play in tournament for the last two spots.
00:35:35
But anyway, like I was saying, they're gonna The Western Conference is gonna be so much better next year, like the Warriors were dead last right.
00:35:45
The Warriors were 15 and 50.
00:35:48
They were comfortably in last place in the Western Conference.
00:35:51
But let's not forget they weren't even trying by the time Steph Curry injured his, I think.
00:35:57
What was it? What was his thumb or something? Um, in, like in, like November, December like that.
00:36:04
They They still didn't mean Klay Thompson hadn't returned from his a c l injury.
00:36:09
They were done their Their season was over quick, and they didn't even try the rest of the way.
00:36:14
But guess what? They're gonna have curry back next season.
00:36:16
They're gonna have Thompson back.
00:36:17
They're gonna have drinking green back, and they're also gonna have a top three draft pick on their team. They're gonna have.
00:36:24
If you're picking a guy in the top three, you're probably gonna pick an impact player.
00:36:28
So they're gonna have three.
00:36:29
They're gonna have another incredibly potent lineup that should be should definitely put them right back up near the top of the Western Conference.
00:36:39
So already, let's say they jumped the jazz.
00:36:41
That puts the jazz at seven.
00:36:43
Right? Let's say let's say the pelicans get better.
00:36:47
Let's say like, um, let's say that Zion improves right, and they still have a good They still have a good lineup.
00:36:56
They've got assets to work with.
00:36:58
They could get better.
00:37:00
I don't see the Timberwolves very well.
00:37:02
Get better.
00:37:03
They have the first overall pick, but they could trade there talking about trading away for an impact player who that is? I don't know.
00:37:10
I guess we'll find out.
00:37:12
But they're gonna have They're gonna have another, uh, They're gonna have three really strong players with whoever they trade.
00:37:17
The first overall pick for as well as D'Angelo, Russell as well as curl Anthony towns.
00:37:22
So and projecting them to jump over the jazz.
00:37:27
So the Japs, they're just gonna be the Grizzlies.
00:37:30
They're gonna be are gonna be better because they've got John Grant.
00:37:33
They've got assets to work with, and they're gonna continue develop their team on the rise.
00:37:37
They're growing the sun or another team that already talked about.
00:37:41
They could jump the jazz Jazz.
00:37:43
I think the blazers had a really bad year.
00:37:47
They had a really slow start, but they got better.
00:37:49
Azi year went on.
00:37:52
They could jump the jazz easily.
00:37:53
I think it's it feels so correct.
00:37:56
Let me just let me just hit the meat really quick.
00:38:01
Sorry.
00:38:02
I thought I had to see it.
00:38:03
Okay, Um, it's just like to me.
00:38:04
It's like it's so it would be so ignorant.
00:38:09
And ignorance is bliss for a lot of people.
00:38:12
But it would be so ignorant to think that the Jazz can stay in the playoff picture if they are complacent, which they're gonna have.
00:38:23
It was is looking like what they're likely gonna dio.
00:38:27
They're likely to run that team back.
00:38:29
Um, I just think it's gonna have a really tough time.
00:38:34
I just I just think the Western Conference is just gonna get so much better.
00:38:38
I think that I think that there's gonna be a really big shakeup.
00:38:42
I mean, we'll see what happens with Houston if they end up trading.
00:38:46
James Harden, Oklahoma City.
00:38:49
I mean, I mean there.
00:38:50
I mean, there are some some teams that the Jazz could certainly jump ahead of.
00:38:55
They could jump ahead of the thunder because it's looking like they're probably going to trade away.
00:38:59
Chris Paul tryto try to hit the reset button on that Sees on that team.
00:39:05
Houston, Who knows what the hell they're gonna dio? So there is some wiggle room for the jazz to stay in the playoff race but it's razor thin, I think.
00:39:15
I think if if they are complacent, if they don't do something about Gobert, they're gonna have a really hard time.
00:39:21
And I think so.
00:39:22
There's two key things for the Jazz, right? They've got to figure out what to do with Rudy Gobert.
00:39:27
Do they trade him? Do they extend them? I think if they give him the max level extension there, that's the nail in the coffin for their championship hopes, like it's done.
00:39:36
I don't think they have any chance of winning a championship if they have both Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert taking a 50% of the salary cap, Okay, I don't think I don't think that would work at all.
00:39:46
Um, but But the other one So then it's so figure out.
00:39:54
What? What? What they gotta do? Go bears one right? The other thing they've got to Dio is bring back Jordan Clarkson because he was a really important key part.
00:40:06
I mean, he essentially stated the Jazz season last year.
00:40:09
He probably maybe had a really strong case for sixth man of the Year.
00:40:13
I he gave the Jazz exactly what they needed.
00:40:16
The times a lot of energy off the bench was immediate scoring.
00:40:20
Sparkplug Um, I think if he goes and if the Jazz decide to run it back with Rudy Gobert on a higher contract there, ****ed, I think that's there in big, big ass trouble.
00:40:35
So we'll see.
00:40:37
I'm really interested to see what the Jazz dio I'll be watching that from afar.
00:40:41
I'm not gonna be like to emotionally invested in that.
00:40:44
That's my take.
00:40:45
Like if if go bear comes back, if he gets extended, um, to that Maxell it to that max contract, they're in big trouble, right? So I don't know.
00:40:57
We'll just we'll just have to see and and the other thing they need to bring that Clarkson So But here's the thing that could throw the ****** wrench in all this.
00:41:04
Is that the Jazz? In case you're not following, in case you haven't been following this very closely just sold the team to a new owner.
00:41:13
The team was owned for almost entirely of the franchise by the Larry H. Miller Group.
00:41:20
They're no longer the majority owners of the team.
00:41:23
However, they sold it last week to, uh, software mogul entrepreneur billionaire Guy Ryan Smith, who now owns 80% of the team and is gonna be calling the shots.
00:41:35
So it'll be interesting to see how hands on he is with everything the Millers were famously not very hands on.
00:41:41
They let the basketball knowledgeable period people, um, you know, call the shots, you know, make the trades all that, all that jazz.
00:41:49
So, um, we'll see if Ryan Smith wants to take a more hands on approach.
00:41:57
Let's say let's say he does, right.
00:41:59
Let's say he lets say, Hey, this is I just paid $1.
00:42:02
6 billion for this thing I want to say and what the hell you guys were gonna put out on the court, right? Um, yeah.
00:42:13
Hey, Dennis.
00:42:15
Lindsey.
00:42:16
Hey.
00:42:17
Leyritz's Ryan Smith here.
00:42:18
This is this is there on the phone here.
00:42:19
This is Ryan SmithKline.
00:42:20
Dennis Lindsey.
00:42:21
Hey, uh, you know, I really you know, I'm really, always gonna really good bear fan.
00:42:28
I don't think we can afford to lose him.
00:42:30
He's really is a pretty unique player.
00:42:32
I don't think he's easily replaceable.
00:42:34
I think I think I think we got we got to do everything we can keep him.
00:42:39
I don't know.
00:42:40
I don't know, Right? And I have some really interesting trade options on the table.
00:42:45
I think that ultimately it could make the team better.
00:42:48
You know, I understand it could be difficult to part ways with the guy who's been so integral in the development of this team.
00:42:55
But e think they take the next step.
00:42:58
You know, we might have toe look really hard at one of these trains Is Ryan Smith.
00:43:02
Yeah, I'm signing your ****ing checks and I want to keep Rudy Gobert.
00:43:08
So that's what's gonna happen, right? Okay, Okay.
00:43:16
You got it right? Yeah.
00:43:18
Make it happen.
00:43:19
Boom! Click.
00:43:20
OK, if that conversation happens where they decided they must that they want to keep your bear there.
00:43:29
I just I don't think they can ever improve.
00:43:33
I think they're gonna I think I think they're going to be stagnant.
00:43:36
I think they're going to be a best one of those, Um, maybe just outside the cusp teams.
00:43:43
You know, um, one of those, um, 456 seed playoff teams.
00:43:49
You know, I think that's their That's their That's their their ceiling with Gobert.
00:43:55
What? I think eso it'll be really is to see what the new owner wants to dio.
00:43:59
How, um, how much he wants to take charge of the situation there.
00:44:04
I'm sure he wants to make a splash.
00:44:06
I'm sure he wants Thio win.
00:44:08
The championship is quickly as possible.
00:44:12
I'm sure in his mind he you know, maybe that maybe for him that means keeping Gobert.
00:44:18
I think that would be a big mistake, though.
00:44:20
So I I think I think what they've got to do is figure out a way t o get rid of Gobert and get is much back for him as they can.
00:44:28
And if that means draft picks, so that means they say, Okay, this year is gonna be kind of tough, but let's regroup.
00:44:35
Let's let's get a good young core around Donovan.
00:44:40
Let's get mawr into the modern small ball situation here and gets, um and gets, um, improve our depth right now.
00:44:52
The jazz.
00:44:53
I don't think the Jazz have super good depth either.
00:44:55
Um I mean the thing about the jazz, they have a team of guys that are really likable, but I don't think that necessarily means that they have the best possible product they can put on the floor, right? So they have guys like Joe Ingles and I love Joe Ingles.
00:45:13
He's, I think he is, without question, going to go down as one of the all time fan favorite for the Jazz.
00:45:21
Right? For Jazz fans, Um, he took me he.
00:45:26
The thing that was cool about angles was that he improved every year until last year when I think he took, like, two steps back.
00:45:34
He had, like he in considering the role that he had grown to take on his performance, did not match where it had been in years prior.
00:45:45
I think I think he regressed a lot, and I think it would be, um, a stretch to think that he at his age, he's like, I think he's like 31 or 32 is going Thio revert back the way he was playing when he was playing really well, I just I mean, I just don't think I just think like what are you saying? He took a year off and he's gonna get right back to where he waas e think that's ridiculous.
00:46:11
The other guy that I think is like, really likable, but he's sucking up a ton of cap space, and I think he's dooming.
00:46:20
The Jazz is definitely Mike Conley, who the Jazz made a big trade for.
00:46:27
It was no.
00:46:28
There was like the most telegraph trade in the history of trades when they acquired him prior to last season.
00:46:35
Hey, played, really.
00:46:36
He was terrible for the Jazz.
00:46:37
He had, like, career lows in just about every category.
00:46:42
I mean, ultimately, he did have, you know, flashes of, I guess you could say, showing who he had showing, you know, the caliber of player that the Jazz thought they were going to get.
00:46:54
But he was not worth the money.
00:46:56
They paid them.
00:46:57
They paid him a lot of money. They paid him $35 million.
00:46:59
They gave up a ton of assets.
00:47:00
They traded like they traded away Jae Crowder.
00:47:03
They traded away.
00:47:04
Um, what's his name? Grayson Allen.
00:47:06
Uh, some draft picks to get him.
00:47:08
He wasn't worth it.
00:47:10
He was not worth the expense.
00:47:13
That's they paid for him.
00:47:15
I think I think they might have been better off had they kept, uh, Ricky Rubio, who? Another guy who fans really liked but didn't play super Well, I think They were just hoping that colony would provide more of a scoring threat than what Rubio brought to the table.
00:47:33
Because Rubio is the terrible shooter with the jazz.
00:47:36
Um, but Conley just played awful.
00:47:39
I mean, I mean, I can just think about this.
00:47:41
Let me just let me just let me just This is how I embodied Mike Conley season.
00:47:45
Like his whole career.
00:47:47
He had built this.
00:47:48
Hey, had this really nice shot where he would come through the middle of the lane, put a put up a sweet little floater off the glass into the bucket, right? That was Conley's, like penetration, move.
00:48:01
I don't think I saw him hit a single one of those for the Jazz this year.
00:48:05
He was God awful.
00:48:07
He completely lost his ability to make that shot.
00:48:10
And I think that was like, a big reason why the Jazz were short of expectations this last year, you know? And I think I think a lot of people make excuses for him.
00:48:22
Um, but I think the fact is, they just worked as good as they should have been, so I don't know. It's a tough one.
00:48:32
I mean, I don't I'm glad I don't have to make decisions for MBA teams.
00:48:38
I'm never going to be in that position for a lot of reasons, because I don't think anybody would ever trust me that level.
00:48:46
Um, I don't think I would ever dedicate the time needed Thio become that much of a salary cap expert because I find numbers and **** confusing.
00:48:59
Um, but if I'm if I'm general manager for the jazz, his name is Justin Sanick.
00:49:07
Um I mean, you got a lot of praise for putting, you know, for some moves you made last year.
00:49:15
People were psyched.
00:49:16
They got Conley.
00:49:18
People were psyched. That got Bogdanovich.
00:49:20
That was a good move.
00:49:21
Bogdanovich was definitely a very good move.
00:49:23
Um, that's another excuse.
00:49:27
Jazz fans were making that had he not being injured for that for the reset, that maybe the jazz would have done a little bit better.
00:49:34
Uh, then And in the playoffs, there's no way we can know that, obviously, but that's what people are saying. That might be valid.
00:49:40
There's no way you could know that.
00:49:42
I mean, you have to.
00:49:43
You have thio live with what you put on the floor.
00:49:47
Um But I mean, Zanuck also made a made a couple of a couple of bad moves.
00:49:52
Like I I didn't like the Emmanuel Mudiay pick up, although I think they got the most out of him that they could have possibly gotten out of him because he's his, like, historically, been one of the worst players in the NBA.
00:50:07
And I think he was off the the bottom of the barrel of this year.
00:50:12
Faras play goes, um, e think, but he's still a veteran's minimum guy.
00:50:17
Um, you know, Moody is not not good.
00:50:21
And I think, yeah, I think the Jazz got off to a slow start and I think a big reason why they had to rely too much on moodier because they didn't have the depth in the backcourt.
00:50:31
Thio put a competent, ah, second unit point guard out.
00:50:36
I think that's a that's gonna be a priority.
00:50:40
Eso I think that's something I would say like the Ed Davis pickup was really bad.
00:50:48
E mean, I don't Davis was injured most of the year, but when he was when he wasn't injured, he was he was unbelievably ineffective.
00:50:57
He might be out of basketball.
00:50:58
He he might, his career might be over.
00:51:01
That's how that's how bad his play.
00:51:03
Waas.
00:51:04
So I think I think the jazz air in a ah lot tougher place than people give him credit.
00:51:10
I think they have a There's a really good chance they could be back in the lottery very soon.
00:51:16
Or they could be stuck in that dreaded middle ground of complacency for for years if they if they depending on the moves that they make.
00:51:28
So I think the Jazz Aaron like, kind of a really harder spot than a lot of people would say.
00:51:33
They don't have a ton of cap space.
00:51:35
They're gonna have to rely on that mid level exception to get someone I've seen just because, like the exception last year, might have been able to get a guy like Jeremy Grant, like a lot of people think that that's the kind of player they could get again.
00:51:51
And first of all, you have to.
00:51:52
You have Thio intrigue a guy enough to get him to want to play in Utah for a year, right at that level of money and then hope he over performs.
00:52:03
I don't know. I think that's a stretch.
00:52:05
So I think the Jazz were I think the Jazz are in a pretty tough spot.
00:52:11
I think I think I'm really I'm really interested to see what they dio.
00:52:14
I'm interested in seeing if they do the smart thing in my opinion and trade Rudy Gobert before the season gets started.
00:52:25
No, I just think it's gonna be interesting.
00:52:27
I think I don't think Gobert is just I'm just spitballing here something that came to my mind.
00:52:35
I know some people I know some people in Jazz Nation like, Oh, do you think we could get the first overall pick from Minnesota for Gobert? I wouldn't think so at all.
00:52:45
Although this this year's draft is supposedly gonna be pretty weak.
00:52:50
Um, now I don't think I don't think that's realistic Possibility.
00:52:55
So I don't know.
00:52:56
I think in jazz rooms have spot.
00:52:57
I'm gonna talk a little bit about them.
00:52:59
I'll probably talk more about them at length.
00:53:02
This was just kind of a trial run to see how things go.
00:53:05
Um, I gotta I found SportsCastr on Twitter, I think, and I just kinda wanted to give it a go.
00:53:15
It seems like it could be a really interesting platform, I might add it very well.

00:00:53
That's all we need.
00:00:55
Okay, so let's get going here.
00:00:57
Let's see what I'm just trying to get a get a bead on how this is going here.
00:01:02
It's kind of kind of a fun little little thing here.
00:01:08
Okay. All right.
00:01:09
I can share that.
00:01:10
I can embed up, and maybe we'll share to Twitter just say, Hey, I'm on.
00:01:30
Okay.
00:01:31
Yeah. So this is kind of a kind of a cool little thing here.
00:01:33
Okay? I like it.
00:01:37
I like it.
00:01:38
I think I think I think there's something here for sure.
00:01:40
Okay.
00:01:41
So anyway, I don't think anything in the sports world really happened today.
00:01:45
If I'm mistaken, then I apologize.
00:01:48
I just got woke up from a depression app, so, you know, a little out of it.
00:01:53
Um, let's just Let's let's take a take a look here.
00:01:57
Let's check out some headlines.
00:01:59
Let's check some **** out.
00:02:00
You know, I can swear on this, I hope, right? If not, then I apologize.
00:02:06
But we're gonna do it anyway.
00:02:08
Okay.
00:02:10
So Oh, there's a college football game going on its central Michigan vs Ohio.
00:02:14
Who cares? Um, okay.
00:02:19
All right.
00:02:20
So, yeah, there's some headlines here.
00:02:22
Okay? There's some headlines here for sure.
00:02:28
Okay, So top headlines on ESPN read the following Lions Place quarterback Matthew Stafford on co vid 19 list again.
00:02:39
I wasn't aware he was on the list.
00:02:40
Uh, er, but, um okay, Interesting.
00:02:57
Okay.
00:03:03
All right.
00:03:04
Okay.
00:03:05
Tryingto I'm not super educated on the Matthew Stafford situation, So not going to comment too much on that.
00:03:14
Uh, if anybody else has some insights out there that could enlighten me, tell me why.
00:03:18
This is a big story.
00:03:19
I guess he's been on the list before, So he might be, I'm guessing.
00:03:24
Probably the first NFL player to be on the list.
00:03:28
Um, twice, I should say.
00:03:31
But, you know, um, maybe the chats open.
00:03:35
Guys, Go ahead. Enlighten me.
00:03:36
Why, This is a big deal.
00:03:37
Um, I think I think just the story is that he's probably like I said, the first player to be on there on the Kobe 19 list twice.
00:03:46
So, uh, if he's not, I'm mistaken.
00:03:48
It looks like we got some.
00:03:50
We got my guy, Coop 30 for us.
00:03:52
Here.
00:03:53
What's up, my guy? Coop, you know, you you are.
00:03:56
Looks like you have Ah, a person in that picture with you.
00:04:00
Um, you love sports.
00:04:01
You love your chiefs.
00:04:02
Your father three.
00:04:03
You love working on cars and you can't wait for the chiefs to win the Super Bowl.
00:04:08
I don't know if you knew this, but they want it last year.
00:04:10
Coop, I guess you can't wait again.
00:04:14
S o.
00:04:15
I hope I hope I hope your hopes and dreams come true and that the Chiefs win the Super Bowl again.
00:04:21
Um, so the kind of the sports thing that was on my mind today I was listening to my hands look fat.
00:04:28
That's all I care about.
00:04:29
I don't think so.
00:04:30
Um, the sports news that was kind of on my mind today.
00:04:35
I was listening to the Bill Simmons podcast with Ryan or Sill.
00:04:40
Oh, because those guys air unbelievably good at podcasting and they opened their discussion by talking about the NBA season.
00:04:50
What it's how shaping up to be when they're gonna come back and play next year, because that's going to come up a lot faster than I think.
00:04:59
I think anyone has realized.
00:05:02
And there's some interesting arguments on both sides.
00:05:06
The players.
00:05:07
They're saying, Hey, we need more time.
00:05:09
Let's, uh let's try to start this around Martin Luther King Day in January, Whereas the owners were like, uh, no, we're not gonna ****ing do that.
00:05:17
We're going to start in December.
00:05:19
We're gonna play 72 games and we're gonna try to get things back to normal.
00:05:24
Normal.
00:05:25
2021 2022 So, um, that's, um, that that was the situation.
00:05:34
That was what Simmons and Arcila we're talking about.
00:05:37
And there were I mean, there were some interesting arguments, and I think I think I kind I think this side.
00:05:45
I guess you could say that Brazil Oh, and Simmons were taking definitely was skewing more towards the owners standpoint, and they made some really good points that I wasn't aware of.
00:05:56
Essentially, the big dealio is, um, for those of you who don't know, let me catch you up.
00:06:02
So, like I said, the players want to start a little bit later.
00:06:06
They want to start in January, and they want to play about a 50 game schedule, whereas, um, the owners were like, No, we're not gonna do that.
00:06:15
We're gonna We're gonna start as soon as we possibly can.
00:06:18
We're gonna start December 22nd, and we're gonna play 72 games.
00:06:22
Uh, that way we can recoup a lot of money that we are going to lose, uh, for sure.
00:06:28
And then that will give us a better timeline to get back to normal. Normal.
00:06:32
When? When things start shaping up.
00:06:35
Uh, in 2021 20 for the 2021 2022 seasons.
00:06:39
So I hope I have my timeline around on that.
00:06:43
So there's gonna be 2 21 22 seasons.
00:06:47
No, there's not.
00:06:48
Okay, it's confusing.
00:06:50
No eso This would be the 2021 c.
00:06:52
Okay, Got it.
00:06:53
Okay, 20.
00:06:54
So they want to get back to normal for the 2021 2022 season.
00:06:57
So, um, yeah, I think I mean, if you're I mean, I get what the players are saying.
00:07:05
Like they feel like they need more time because the season just ended.
00:07:09
But here's the reality.
00:07:11
The season really just ended for on Lee.
00:07:15
24 guys for Onley, the guys who were playing in the NBA finals it on Lee just in it for those guys.
00:07:22
So if I mean, obviously, if you're either on the Laker, if your guys on the Lakers or the heat, you're thinking okay, man, I just got john plan.
00:07:31
You hardly gave me a time to catch my breath.
00:07:34
It's like Okay, well, you know, Sorry.
00:07:36
E mean, you've got to play in the NBA finals, and that's I'm sorry that this is the consequences.
00:07:41
You gotta start again pretty soon.
00:07:43
So you know, I'm sorry, but we gotta We gotta get going here.
00:07:48
We gotta We gotta get things back to normal.
00:07:51
Um, I don't know.
00:07:53
That's that's That's the side I would take if I was.
00:07:57
If I was an owner, I would say, you know, like we got it.
00:08:00
We gotta get things as close to normal as we can.
00:08:03
And the Onley way to do that is Thio start in December.
00:08:10
That seems to be the only that seems to be the only way to go.
00:08:13
And from what I can see on this ESPN headline, it says sources players, player reps expected to approve December 20 seconds Start Thio MBA season.
00:08:24
So it looks like the players are going to agree with the owners and approve thesis season beginning on 22nd and lasting 22 games long.
00:08:37
So let me just quickly skimmed the article here.
00:08:42
The national players decisions taken a lot of very team player representative sources of the SPS, So escrow figures issue their money, money, money.
00:08:52
Um, Okay.
00:08:55
Cool.
00:08:56
Okay, So Okay, So here's the thing.
00:09:02
Um, so I mean, it sounds from what I could understand I don't I don't really understand what escrow is.
00:09:09
I've heard that term a lot.
00:09:11
Like for people who buy houses a Z.
00:09:14
You can see I rent a room. I have.
00:09:16
I'm not anywhere near through the level of dating to buy a house quite yet, but seems like eso someone.
00:09:25
There's so much we could hit me in the comments and enlighten me as to what that means Be great.
00:09:31
Um, but, um, what I'm what I'm gathering here is just looking at this article and having listened to a little bit of the Bill Simmons podcast today, um, the league recently hold teams that 40% of basketball related income could be lost without gate received the season S o.
00:10:13
I mean, and they locked because of the what you call it because of the pandemic losing the last third or so of the season they lost about the MBA's basketball related income was down $1.
00:10:28
5 billion last season.
00:10:31
So they know they're gonna lose money.
00:10:34
It's just an issue of they want to lose as little money as possible.
00:10:39
Um, so I thought that was that was enlightening.
00:10:44
Um, so let me Sorry, let me shoot out a Twitter link here trying out a new sing on sports caster.
00:11:02
Check it out.
00:11:03
Okay.
00:11:04
I gotta say, I think the SportsCastr is actually kind of a good idea.
00:11:08
And it seems like they have, like, some some monetization options that air cool.
00:11:14
I mean, let's be honest here.
00:11:15
Any of us who are doing a sports show from our from our ba*****t or wherever we find ourselves on SportsCastr, none of us are gonna make it in this industry.
00:11:25
That's I'm sorry.
00:11:26
That's no.
00:11:27
That's just the harsh truth of it.
00:11:29
We're all just losers at this point, right? I mean, nobody.
00:11:33
Nobody on this platform is gonna get discovered.
00:11:35
Nobody's going t o make a fruitful living, but it is still pretty cool.
00:11:41
Um, and I can dig it while I'm here for sure.
00:11:45
Um, I am I still alive? I think I'm still alive for me.
00:11:49
Hold on something.
00:11:50
I think something screwy happened.
00:11:51
Here.
00:11:52
Let me check this out.
00:11:53
Let me just check it out of my phone and I'm gonna keep talking just in K.
00:11:59
It's Moon River.
00:12:02
Wider little mile.
00:12:05
Okay, well, let's see.
00:12:07
I don't think I'm live let me see.
00:12:09
It's loading right now in my life.
00:12:17
I'm not sure if I'm life.
00:12:21
Yeah, okay.
00:12:22
I can see my finger.
00:12:23
Okay.
00:12:24
I am life.
00:12:25
I don't know where my screen is.
00:12:27
Um, Don't know why I can't see myself.
00:12:29
Whatever.
00:12:30
You know what I mean? We're learning.
00:12:32
We're here.
00:12:33
Um, so can I make myself feel life twice? And I think I want to do that.
00:12:39
I pushed this here.
00:12:42
Okay, I think like the window I was using, uh, closed for some reason.
00:12:50
But that doesn't matter.
00:12:51
I guess I can still look at me.
00:12:52
I mean, I can clearly see that I'm on waving here.
00:12:55
Hello? Seems like that what I like about this seems like the Leighton see is pretty good.
00:12:59
So I hope I hope people can hear me amusing.
00:13:03
My, uh, sound mixer here.
00:13:06
I've got some music playing my own ear, not letting that go out over the air for copyright issues.
00:13:13
So I think it's working.
00:13:15
I think it's not, you know, go **** yourself.
00:13:17
Appears All right.
00:13:19
So, anyway, 13 people watching Wanna thank everybody who's watching? Um, this is just kind of Ah, kind of Ah, an experiment I guess you could say I wanted I just wanted to see how toe how this what he called this, uh, SportsCastr thing worked.
00:13:36
So it seems like it's pretty cool.
00:13:38
I can dig it.
00:13:39
So how about for the next section of the show, we're gonna call it going on reddit and seeing what's going on there? Um, Hill.
00:13:50
Okay, let's go to do Do do Do do.
00:13:56
Okay.
00:14:00
Okay.
00:14:01
So Okay, so and then there's some other.
00:14:11
There's some other.
00:14:12
Okay, so here we go.
00:14:13
I'm gonna go to the Read A MBA page here.
00:14:16
See that We've got some more stuff here.
00:14:18
Okay, So I'm listening to the entirety of the Bill Simmons podcast.
00:14:22
I probably was misleading in that, um, so I Here's the interesting thing.
00:14:27
Um, okay, so according so on the podcast Brazil.
00:14:35
Oh, there.
00:14:36
I mean, Brazil.
00:14:37
Oh, and Simmons.
00:14:38
We're talking about guys who could be moving around in the next few days, weeks, months to come in the MBA and a couple of guys came up.
00:14:47
They talked about how Gordon Hayward probably once out of Boston, which would be funny for a lot of jazz fans out there.
00:14:55
I think That's really I'm sure.
00:14:57
I think Boston probably I would imagine Boston would be eager to get him out of there because he's definitely not worth what they're paying him.
00:15:05
Um, so I would be interesting to see what kind of value that you get in return.
00:15:10
I think like to get rid of a guy like that.
00:15:13
I think to find a willing trade partner, you'd have to probably throw in like a really, like a good asset, like a first round pick to get someone thio take on that kind of money.
00:15:24
Um, but I mean which I mean, it isn't like a huge loss.
00:15:28
I mean, I mean, the Celtics, they're like a borderline top tier team where, like giving up a first round pick isn't that isn't that detrimental? It's gonna be in the late twenties, so, um, it's not It's not like giving away, like like a lottery pick for sure.
00:15:43
So I think that's probably something they're gonna really think about doing, uh, to get rid of Gordon Hayward.
00:15:51
But another one? That's kind of interesting.
00:15:53
Uh, says here according Thio Ryan Marcelo, it's the worst kept secret in the N b. A.
00:15:58
That Devin Booker already wants out of Phoenix.
00:16:01
Um, so let's see here.
00:16:03
We're going onto Reddit.
00:16:05
MBA is to see this post this, um, sons reporter.
00:16:10
Uh, Gamba Duro.
00:16:13
I don't know if he works for the sons or if he works for, like, an outlet over there in Arizona.
00:16:19
Response. This is 100%.
00:16:21
Not true in retort.
00:16:23
Thio.
00:16:24
What? Russell a was saying Book is happy in Phoenix, Excited for the season.
00:16:27
Loves how they finished in the bubble.
00:16:29
Excited about free agency.
00:16:31
Not one time Has he ever told anyone he wanted out? Don't listen to this garbage strong take from the from, uh, there's there, like someone who's worked in media, I can tell you there's, like, a huge underlying rivalry between guys who work in, um, local media and guys were on the national level, like the guy like they both resent each other a lot for different reasons.
00:16:57
Obviously, Like my my feeling is that, like, the national guys, look down.
00:17:01
The local guys like you wanna be where I am, but a lot of the local guys probably think that you know, the national people are just blowhards, you know, just pretty boys who, um, who aren't as dialed into the So what's really going on on the microscope? I guess you could say of their markets, which is probably, you know, both could be true.
00:17:23
Both could totally be true.
00:17:25
But, um, here's here's the thing.
00:17:28
Um, I don't know anything about Devin Booker's relationship with the sons.
00:17:34
Um, what I do know is that team is incredibly close.
00:17:38
Um, that was made apparent when that girl was on the note jumper podcast and talked about how she gave oral *** Thio like the whole team at the same time.
00:17:49
I mean, you've got to be a pretty close knit group to do that.
00:17:54
Well, I'm not gonna get into that because I was disgusting.
00:17:56
But anyway, here's what Here's here's Here's what I would say about the Devin Booker situation like, obviously, they had a really strong showing in the bubble.
00:18:05
They might undefeated there.
00:18:06
They won all eight of their What do they call him? The seating games.
00:18:11
They just missed the they, however, to get into the playoffs.
00:18:16
They needed help, and they didn't get that help, so they were left on the outside of the playoffs.
00:18:20
So who? Who? You know, whatever.
00:18:22
But they still played really well in the bubble.
00:18:26
Um, so I mean, here's what I would say if I'm the general manager of the Phoenix sense, I don't know his name.
00:18:35
Sons GM.
00:18:40
The general manager is James Jones, who was a member of the Cavs Championship Championship teams.
00:18:47
Um, e I mean, so he's a player, right? He's got, um, he's got a playing pedigree.
00:18:55
I mean, I'm sure he gets what it's like to be on like, ****y Team and want to be on a good team.
00:19:00
It's great.
00:19:01
He only just retired from the MBA in 2017.
00:19:05
Hey, is it Z kind of a big promotion for for him? What was he doing before that? It's almost he was.
00:19:16
He was named the vice president of basketball operations for the Sons.
00:19:20
Uh, like as he retired, that was that was his.
00:19:24
That was like he got that job right out of the gate and the news named the general manager.
00:19:29
Um, about a year later, eso and he's made.
00:19:36
He's made a couple not great trades.
00:19:40
Um, well, I mean, I don't say one decent trade in one bad trade.
00:19:46
Hey, traded Trevor Resa for Kelly Uber and December 2018.
00:19:50
That's okay, I think.
00:19:52
Um, because Reese is like, 50 years old.
00:19:55
Uber is young.
00:19:56
They're probably pretty comparable players.
00:19:59
But then Ryan Anderson for Taylor Johnson.
00:20:03
I mean, we'll just call that one a washes.
00:20:05
Those guys, those guys both had their, uh, moment in the sun.
00:20:09
But that Z that's been affected.
00:20:11
I mean, they're they're pretty much those guys.
00:20:13
If Ryan Anderson is not out of league by now, he certainly will be soon.
00:20:18
Yeah, he's not a leader.
00:20:19
He didn't play last year.
00:20:20
Um, yeah.
00:20:24
So Ryan Anderson that league.
00:20:26
So I mean, he treated a guy who's now out of the league for a guy who should be out of the league soon and is now with the Brooklyn Nets.
00:20:33
Taylor Johnson.
00:20:34
So those were like those air James Jones.
00:20:36
Two big moves with the Phoenix Suns.
00:20:38
Anyway, um, here's what I would do if I'm him and I'm addressing the Devin Booker situation.
00:20:44
Okay, I would say, Okay, dude, I get it.
00:20:47
Like, uh, our French is kind of a mess.
00:20:50
Our owner, whose name is Robert Sarver server.
00:20:54
I think It's kind of a dip****.
00:20:57
Um, we've been we've been pretty relevant.
00:21:02
Robert Sarver.
00:21:03
Yeah. Pretty irrelevant for a few years.
00:21:06
I understand your your budding superstar.
00:21:09
You probably want to get out of here, right? So anyway, I would say, Okay, let's get started this year, right? Let's we finished the bubble really strong.
00:21:23
We finished on really good high note.
00:21:26
Give me who give me.
00:21:30
Give me freaking Give me a month.
00:21:33
Give me maybe maybe, like, two months.
00:21:36
We'll see where we are if we're not.
00:21:39
And if we're not showing room for improvement Room Army.
00:21:42
If we're not showing improvement, Um, let's let's you know, let's get you Let's get you somewhere else.
00:21:53
Look at Devon Booker's contract situation to see what that I mean.
00:21:58
He said he was excited about free agency.
00:21:59
Let's see what that means.
00:22:01
Um, it looks like he's, uh so he signed.
00:22:07
So he's That's weird that he said he was excited about free agency because he's not really close to being a free agent.
00:22:15
Hey, signed a five year rookie Max scale rookie scale max extension in 2018.
00:22:21
That's gonna lock him up through 2024.
00:22:24
So I.
00:22:25
He's already one of the higher paid guys in the NBA.
00:22:27
Looks like he's gonna be made.
00:22:30
I mean, obviously, it's gonna This is all gonna be the what the exact number is.
00:22:33
What they actually end up making is gonna depend a lot on when the season starts and what the escrow situation all that.
00:22:39
But it's already making pretty close to $30 million a year.
00:22:41
So that's definitely in the upper echelon of NBA players.
00:22:46
So I don't understand what that was about.
00:22:49
Excited about free agents.
00:22:50
Or maybe he's excited about what what his team could accomplish in free agency.
00:22:54
I think I think that's what I think that's that Felix reporter was saying.
00:22:57
So let's look at the Phoenix Sons Free Agency Outlook here.
00:23:07
Let's look, let's look at that. I'll tell you what I think.
00:23:09
Um, looks like there's a son's blogged here that, um, has some ideas with the sons could be doing looking here at SP Nations Bright Side of the Sun, looking at who they think the sons could target in free agency, um, Internet meal.
00:23:32
So it looks like, I think, um, so the sons, the sons have like they're gonna have, like, $18.
00:23:41
9 million to play with.
00:23:43
Should the should the cap remain at $190 million Right, So that's they're gonna have quite a bit.
00:23:48
That's six most in the NBA to play with the first most it's gonna be the Hawks.
00:23:53
They have $44 million place.
00:23:54
I think the Hawks in a really good place.
00:23:56
Uh, I think I think I think they're gonna be a team to watch out for next year. For sure.
00:24:01
Um, the Knicks have $42 million but they're gonna find a way toe Thio.
00:24:08
**** that up.
00:24:09
Um e mean, the who would have been the biggest prize of the free agency period would definitely would have been Anthony Davis, but he's already, um, he's already made it clear that he's going to resign of the Lakers, so he's off the market.
00:24:25
Detroit has $32 million.
00:24:27
Um, what is there to say about the Detroit right now? It wasn't a saying.
00:24:34
I don't know.
00:24:35
They traded, um, they traded drummond, um, Thio calves.
00:24:43
Let's stand topic.
00:24:45
Maybe we'll get to that later.
00:24:46
So the the heat also have 20.
00:24:48
No, $21.
00:24:49
9 million in cash.
00:24:51
Face.
00:24:52
That's nuts that a team that was just in the NBA Finals is gonna have that much that much money to play with the off season, Charlotte's got $19 million and the number three overall pick People are saying they they might want to move up.
00:25:05
And then Phoenix has the six most, uh, six largest amount of money to play with that 19 at just less than $19 million.
00:25:14
$18.
00:25:15
9 million.
00:25:16
So, um, so So it looks so Let's, I mean, $18.
00:25:26
9 million like a good a good target with this block is saying, and I think that I think they're in a good I think this block is right on.
00:25:34
I think, um, looking at a guy like Jeremy Grant could command that kind of money.
00:25:41
Um, he made $9 million last year with the Nuggets.
00:25:46
Um, so yeah, so I But, uh, let me let me look at Jeremy Grants.
00:26:00
He's gonna be one of the more sought after free agents this year because, you know, I thought he played really well in the playoffs for the Nuggets.
00:26:08
E think he's really versatile.
00:26:09
I think he's a good up and down guy.
00:26:11
Um, so he's, uh he's so he's got the player option.
00:26:19
So he could He could take the guaranteed money, take $9.
00:26:23
3 million and running back with the Nuggets, Or he could hit the open market and give it another shot.
00:26:29
Uh, give us get and give making more money a chance, which I think he almost certainly would.
00:26:34
It doesn't matter if that would be a better situation for him.
00:26:37
You know, Probably he'll he'll be asked to take on a bigger role, for sure.
00:26:41
Um, looks like people who are interested obviously are gonna be The heat could be really interested.
00:26:49
But the Sun's Oeiras Well, so that would be kind of an interesting pick up.
00:26:54
The sons have have a pretty decent little team there.
00:26:57
I mean, there there's some guys that I that I like, um, uber is not bad, and he's on a pretty affordable contract.
00:27:05
Michael, Bridget.
00:27:06
Michael Bridges is a good three and D guy, um, let's see, um, Cameron Johnson's he's and DeAndre and has has picked it up.
00:27:17
He's gotten to be a little bit more, a little bit more of what people was we're expecting out of him.
00:27:24
When he was drafted first overall a couple years ago, I think I'm still blown away that the sons didn't pick Luca with the first overall pick back in the 2018 draft because I thought that was a slam dunk.
00:27:38
I thought I thought there was no way they weren't gonna pick Luca because he's, uh, he's from Slovakia.
00:27:44
E mean, if he's I'm pretty sure he's from Slovakia, right? It's from one of those weird countries.
00:27:51
Slovenia, Slovenia.
00:27:52
Sorry e.
00:27:53
I mean, who Who cares? You know, Slovenia.
00:27:56
Slovakia? Um so But I thought for sure Luca was going to get picked by the Sun's because at that time, the sons had just hired.
00:28:05
I'm blinking his name.
00:28:07
He was an assistant with the jazz, uh, York ACOG off as their head coach, who was like, pretty much the god of Slovenian basketball.
00:28:15
He's like one of the bigger figures there.
00:28:17
I thought for sure that would have been a really good, really good, um, fit for both of them.
00:28:23
But to me, it just seems like e mean.
00:28:27
It's obvious that you know the Sun's management wanted Thio Bank wanted Thio get 18 being that he played at the University of Arizona, which is in Tucson, Obviously, but, you know, he also grew up in Phoenix.
00:28:41
So I think that was kind of what they were thinking that, you know, he was obviously the best fair in college basketball that year as well as being the hometown kid.
00:28:49
Um, that's I mean, that's that's essentially a recipe for for going in the opposition every time.
00:28:57
So I mean that that's not surprising.
00:28:59
That wasn't surprising, but I think they definitely should have.
00:29:02
I think the sons should have taken Luca, but anyway, that's neither here nor there.
00:29:06
I was talking about Devin Booker what he should do.
00:29:10
And, like I said, if I'm James Jones, if I'm the general manager, I say I go.
00:29:14
I go to my say, Listen, let's see what happens in free agency.
00:29:18
Let's see where we are coming out of the gates.
00:29:21
Um, I think we could have a good thing cooking here.
00:29:24
I think I think we have a chance of maybe making the playoffs this year, and once we make the playoffs, um, you know That's where things could start to look up, you know? So ast faras the future outlook for the for the team.
00:29:37
So I was like, Get let's just see, let's just see what happens.
00:29:40
Let's not Let's not do this before the season starts.
00:29:43
Let's certainly not do this before we see what we're what the team is gonna look like for sure.
00:29:49
So anyway, I thought that was kinda interesting.
00:29:52
The other The other thing, I So just talking about the N b A.
00:29:55
I'm gonna reset a little bit.
00:29:57
Obviously, a Z guys can see I'm here in Orlando.
00:30:00
That's where I live.
00:30:01
Right now.
00:30:02
I start My job is, um but I'm originally a Salt Lake guy.
00:30:07
I'm from Utah.
00:30:09
Uh, pretty much lifetime jazz fan, right? And I've I've been credential to work, and I mean, this is like a humble brag just qualifying myself as a jazz expert.
00:30:18
I've been credential to go covered jazz games for various, uh, local media outlets.
00:30:25
I've probably been to like over 100 jazz games with press pass.
00:30:29
Right.
00:30:30
So, uh, I'll say this about the jazz, right? I am willing to say this because I don't think anyone in the Salt Lake market is going to say this and I wanna be the one.
00:30:44
I wanna be the one to get this out on the record.
00:30:46
I think it's almost a guarantee.
00:30:52
Hold on.
00:30:53
Let me reset that. I didn't like the way that was sounding.
00:30:56
I think most people assume that since the Jazz have made the playoffs like five years in a row, they lost a very close seven games season.
00:31:11
Siris in the first round to the Nuggets, who then went on to play in the Western Conference finals.
00:31:18
That the Jazz are very close to getting to the next level.
00:31:23
I think they certainly are close to a level, but I think that's the level down.
00:31:28
I think I think this is gonna be a really challenging year for the Jazz, and I think it starts with what they do with Rudy Gobert in uh in the off season with with regards to his contract extension.
00:31:45
Um, I wrote a little bit about this on on my website notices sports dot com.
00:31:52
I personally think the Jazz should trade Rudy Gobert as quickly as possible.
00:31:57
I think I think that's the most prudent move for them this offseason.
00:32:01
I think that's the best way to take advantage of the fact that Donovan Mitchell is still somewhat enthused about playing there.
00:32:12
I just I think here's what I think I think and this is just one fans take.
00:32:19
If you disagree, you're by all means.
00:32:22
You know, let me know.
00:32:24
Um, I just think really strongly.
00:32:29
I feel this really strongly that that the Jazz have reached their ceiling with that core group being the Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert duo.
00:32:40
I think I think the Jazz, we're gonna have a really hard time this season.
00:32:48
And if they come out, slow out of the gates, which is entirely possible because they're gonna And I'll tell you why in just a second, um, it go bears, they're gonna It's going, They're going to appear mawr desperate.
00:33:03
Thio restart the button on the light on what they have and that will in turn lower the potential return that they could get on a trade for Rudy Gobert.
00:33:15
So I think they need to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak or strike before the iron gets much colder on trading Gobert and do that this offseason.
00:33:24
Okay, here's why.
00:33:26
Here's what I think about the jazz.
00:33:28
Okay, The Jazz are not nearly as good as their fans make them out to be.
00:33:38
I am somewhat of a member of jazz Twittersphere.
00:33:42
I kinda more I would say I'm definitely more of an outsider.
00:33:45
I kind of see what people are saying.
00:33:47
They a lot.
00:33:48
I think a lot of people in jazz Nation toe call themselves, um, think that the team is, like, really on the cusp of of being a contender.
00:33:58
And I don't see how that could be.
00:34:00
Um, I think the I mean I mean, people get so excited about the fact that they took Denver to seven games, right? That's great.
00:34:14
They still lost that.
00:34:15
Siri's, though, right? So, ultimately, I don't think it really matters how many games it took them for.
00:34:21
It took for them to lose that Syria's.
00:34:22
They still lost the Siri's um, they came.
00:34:27
They came into the playoffs as the sixth seed.
00:34:30
That means they were only three teams away from not making the playoffs entirely right and I just think that this year it's so likely that they're gonna be a lot more better teams in the Western Conference, Um, that they're gonna have a really hard time staying in the top eight.
00:34:53
I think I saw I heard somewhere I don't know if it's true, because I have seen with my own eyes, but I heard that right now Vegas is projecting the odds makers in Las Vegas air, projecting the Jazz to be the 10th best team in the Western Conference, which, if you're doing the math, um, would put them out of the top eight in playoffs.
00:35:13
However, I should.
00:35:14
I should say that it's seeming like they're gonna have a plan tournament for the for the final spots, and that might include the 10th spot.
00:35:22
So obviously, I'm speaking how things used to be.
00:35:26
The league's gonna look a lot different next year, for sure, as Faras like who's going to qualify for the playoffs because they're gonna have that play in tournament for the last two spots.
00:35:35
But anyway, like I was saying, they're gonna The Western Conference is gonna be so much better next year, like the Warriors were dead last right.
00:35:45
The Warriors were 15 and 50.
00:35:48
They were comfortably in last place in the Western Conference.
00:35:51
But let's not forget they weren't even trying by the time Steph Curry injured his, I think.
00:35:57
What was it? What was his thumb or something? Um, in, like in, like November, December like that.
00:36:04
They They still didn't mean Klay Thompson hadn't returned from his a c l injury.
00:36:09
They were done their Their season was over quick, and they didn't even try the rest of the way.
00:36:14
But guess what? They're gonna have curry back next season.
00:36:16
They're gonna have Thompson back.
00:36:17
They're gonna have drinking green back, and they're also gonna have a top three draft pick on their team. They're gonna have.
00:36:24
If you're picking a guy in the top three, you're probably gonna pick an impact player.
00:36:28
So they're gonna have three.
00:36:29
They're gonna have another incredibly potent lineup that should be should definitely put them right back up near the top of the Western Conference.
00:36:39
So already, let's say they jumped the jazz.
00:36:41
That puts the jazz at seven.
00:36:43
Right? Let's say let's say the pelicans get better.
00:36:47
Let's say like, um, let's say that Zion improves right, and they still have a good They still have a good lineup.
00:36:56
They've got assets to work with.
00:36:58
They could get better.
00:37:00
I don't see the Timberwolves very well.
00:37:02
Get better.
00:37:03
They have the first overall pick, but they could trade there talking about trading away for an impact player who that is? I don't know.
00:37:10
I guess we'll find out.
00:37:12
But they're gonna have They're gonna have another, uh, They're gonna have three really strong players with whoever they trade.
00:37:17
The first overall pick for as well as D'Angelo, Russell as well as curl Anthony towns.
00:37:22
So and projecting them to jump over the jazz.
00:37:27
So the Japs, they're just gonna be the Grizzlies.
00:37:30
They're gonna be are gonna be better because they've got John Grant.
00:37:33
They've got assets to work with, and they're gonna continue develop their team on the rise.
00:37:37
They're growing the sun or another team that already talked about.
00:37:41
They could jump the jazz Jazz.
00:37:43
I think the blazers had a really bad year.
00:37:47
They had a really slow start, but they got better.
00:37:49
Azi year went on.
00:37:52
They could jump the jazz easily.
00:37:53
I think it's it feels so correct.
00:37:56
Let me just let me just hit the meat really quick.
00:38:01
Sorry.
00:38:02
I thought I had to see it.
00:38:03
Okay, Um, it's just like to me.
00:38:04
It's like it's so it would be so ignorant.
00:38:09
And ignorance is bliss for a lot of people.
00:38:12
But it would be so ignorant to think that the Jazz can stay in the playoff picture if they are complacent, which they're gonna have.
00:38:23
It was is looking like what they're likely gonna dio.
00:38:27
They're likely to run that team back.
00:38:29
Um, I just think it's gonna have a really tough time.
00:38:34
I just I just think the Western Conference is just gonna get so much better.
00:38:38
I think that I think that there's gonna be a really big shakeup.
00:38:42
I mean, we'll see what happens with Houston if they end up trading.
00:38:46
James Harden, Oklahoma City.
00:38:49
I mean, I mean there.
00:38:50
I mean, there are some some teams that the Jazz could certainly jump ahead of.
00:38:55
They could jump ahead of the thunder because it's looking like they're probably going to trade away.
00:38:59
Chris Paul tryto try to hit the reset button on that Sees on that team.
00:39:05
Houston, Who knows what the hell they're gonna dio? So there is some wiggle room for the jazz to stay in the playoff race but it's razor thin, I think.
00:39:15
I think if if they are complacent, if they don't do something about Gobert, they're gonna have a really hard time.
00:39:21
And I think so.
00:39:22
There's two key things for the Jazz, right? They've got to figure out what to do with Rudy Gobert.
00:39:27
Do they trade him? Do they extend them? I think if they give him the max level extension there, that's the nail in the coffin for their championship hopes, like it's done.
00:39:36
I don't think they have any chance of winning a championship if they have both Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert taking a 50% of the salary cap, Okay, I don't think I don't think that would work at all.
00:39:46
Um, but But the other one So then it's so figure out.
00:39:54
What? What? What they gotta do? Go bears one right? The other thing they've got to Dio is bring back Jordan Clarkson because he was a really important key part.
00:40:06
I mean, he essentially stated the Jazz season last year.
00:40:09
He probably maybe had a really strong case for sixth man of the Year.
00:40:13
I he gave the Jazz exactly what they needed.
00:40:16
The times a lot of energy off the bench was immediate scoring.
00:40:20
Sparkplug Um, I think if he goes and if the Jazz decide to run it back with Rudy Gobert on a higher contract there, ****ed, I think that's there in big, big ass trouble.
00:40:35
So we'll see.
00:40:37
I'm really interested to see what the Jazz dio I'll be watching that from afar.
00:40:41
I'm not gonna be like to emotionally invested in that.
00:40:44
That's my take.
00:40:45
Like if if go bear comes back, if he gets extended, um, to that Maxell it to that max contract, they're in big trouble, right? So I don't know.
00:40:57
We'll just we'll just have to see and and the other thing they need to bring that Clarkson So But here's the thing that could throw the ****** wrench in all this.
00:41:04
Is that the Jazz? In case you're not following, in case you haven't been following this very closely just sold the team to a new owner.
00:41:13
The team was owned for almost entirely of the franchise by the Larry H. Miller Group.
00:41:20
They're no longer the majority owners of the team.
00:41:23
However, they sold it last week to, uh, software mogul entrepreneur billionaire Guy Ryan Smith, who now owns 80% of the team and is gonna be calling the shots.
00:41:35
So it'll be interesting to see how hands on he is with everything the Millers were famously not very hands on.
00:41:41
They let the basketball knowledgeable period people, um, you know, call the shots, you know, make the trades all that, all that jazz.
00:41:49
So, um, we'll see if Ryan Smith wants to take a more hands on approach.
00:41:57
Let's say let's say he does, right.
00:41:59
Let's say he lets say, Hey, this is I just paid $1.
00:42:02
6 billion for this thing I want to say and what the hell you guys were gonna put out on the court, right? Um, yeah.
00:42:13
Hey, Dennis.
00:42:15
Lindsey.
00:42:16
Hey.
00:42:17
Leyritz's Ryan Smith here.
00:42:18
This is this is there on the phone here.
00:42:19
This is Ryan SmithKline.
00:42:20
Dennis Lindsey.
00:42:21
Hey, uh, you know, I really you know, I'm really, always gonna really good bear fan.
00:42:28
I don't think we can afford to lose him.
00:42:30
He's really is a pretty unique player.
00:42:32
I don't think he's easily replaceable.
00:42:34
I think I think I think we got we got to do everything we can keep him.
00:42:39
I don't know.
00:42:40
I don't know, Right? And I have some really interesting trade options on the table.
00:42:45
I think that ultimately it could make the team better.
00:42:48
You know, I understand it could be difficult to part ways with the guy who's been so integral in the development of this team.
00:42:55
But e think they take the next step.
00:42:58
You know, we might have toe look really hard at one of these trains Is Ryan Smith.
00:43:02
Yeah, I'm signing your ****ing checks and I want to keep Rudy Gobert.
00:43:08
So that's what's gonna happen, right? Okay, Okay.
00:43:16
You got it right? Yeah.
00:43:18
Make it happen.
00:43:19
Boom! Click.
00:43:20
OK, if that conversation happens where they decided they must that they want to keep your bear there.
00:43:29
I just I don't think they can ever improve.
00:43:33
I think they're gonna I think I think they're going to be stagnant.
00:43:36
I think they're going to be a best one of those, Um, maybe just outside the cusp teams.
00:43:43
You know, um, one of those, um, 456 seed playoff teams.
00:43:49
You know, I think that's their That's their That's their their ceiling with Gobert.
00:43:55
What? I think eso it'll be really is to see what the new owner wants to dio.
00:43:59
How, um, how much he wants to take charge of the situation there.
00:44:04
I'm sure he wants to make a splash.
00:44:06
I'm sure he wants Thio win.
00:44:08
The championship is quickly as possible.
00:44:12
I'm sure in his mind he you know, maybe that maybe for him that means keeping Gobert.
00:44:18
I think that would be a big mistake, though.
00:44:20
So I I think I think what they've got to do is figure out a way t o get rid of Gobert and get is much back for him as they can.
00:44:28
And if that means draft picks, so that means they say, Okay, this year is gonna be kind of tough, but let's regroup.
00:44:35
Let's let's get a good young core around Donovan.
00:44:40
Let's get mawr into the modern small ball situation here and gets, um and gets, um, improve our depth right now.
00:44:52
The jazz.
00:44:53
I don't think the Jazz have super good depth either.
00:44:55
Um I mean the thing about the jazz, they have a team of guys that are really likable, but I don't think that necessarily means that they have the best possible product they can put on the floor, right? So they have guys like Joe Ingles and I love Joe Ingles.
00:45:13
He's, I think he is, without question, going to go down as one of the all time fan favorite for the Jazz.
00:45:21
Right? For Jazz fans, Um, he took me he.
00:45:26
The thing that was cool about angles was that he improved every year until last year when I think he took, like, two steps back.
00:45:34
He had, like he in considering the role that he had grown to take on his performance, did not match where it had been in years prior.
00:45:45
I think I think he regressed a lot, and I think it would be, um, a stretch to think that he at his age, he's like, I think he's like 31 or 32 is going Thio revert back the way he was playing when he was playing really well, I just I mean, I just don't think I just think like what are you saying? He took a year off and he's gonna get right back to where he waas e think that's ridiculous.
00:46:11
The other guy that I think is like, really likable, but he's sucking up a ton of cap space, and I think he's dooming.
00:46:20
The Jazz is definitely Mike Conley, who the Jazz made a big trade for.
00:46:27
It was no.
00:46:28
There was like the most telegraph trade in the history of trades when they acquired him prior to last season.
00:46:35
Hey, played, really.
00:46:36
He was terrible for the Jazz.
00:46:37
He had, like, career lows in just about every category.
00:46:42
I mean, ultimately, he did have, you know, flashes of, I guess you could say, showing who he had showing, you know, the caliber of player that the Jazz thought they were going to get.
00:46:54
But he was not worth the money.
00:46:56
They paid them.
00:46:57
They paid him a lot of money. They paid him $35 million.
00:46:59
They gave up a ton of assets.
00:47:00
They traded like they traded away Jae Crowder.
00:47:03
They traded away.
00:47:04
Um, what's his name? Grayson Allen.
00:47:06
Uh, some draft picks to get him.
00:47:08
He wasn't worth it.
00:47:10
He was not worth the expense.
00:47:13
That's they paid for him.
00:47:15
I think I think they might have been better off had they kept, uh, Ricky Rubio, who? Another guy who fans really liked but didn't play super Well, I think They were just hoping that colony would provide more of a scoring threat than what Rubio brought to the table.
00:47:33
Because Rubio is the terrible shooter with the jazz.
00:47:36
Um, but Conley just played awful.
00:47:39
I mean, I mean, I can just think about this.
00:47:41
Let me just let me just let me just This is how I embodied Mike Conley season.
00:47:45
Like his whole career.
00:47:47
He had built this.
00:47:48
Hey, had this really nice shot where he would come through the middle of the lane, put a put up a sweet little floater off the glass into the bucket, right? That was Conley's, like penetration, move.
00:48:01
I don't think I saw him hit a single one of those for the Jazz this year.
00:48:05
He was God awful.
00:48:07
He completely lost his ability to make that shot.
00:48:10
And I think that was like, a big reason why the Jazz were short of expectations this last year, you know? And I think I think a lot of people make excuses for him.
00:48:22
Um, but I think the fact is, they just worked as good as they should have been, so I don't know. It's a tough one.
00:48:32
I mean, I don't I'm glad I don't have to make decisions for MBA teams.
00:48:38
I'm never going to be in that position for a lot of reasons, because I don't think anybody would ever trust me that level.
00:48:46
Um, I don't think I would ever dedicate the time needed Thio become that much of a salary cap expert because I find numbers and **** confusing.
00:48:59
Um, but if I'm if I'm general manager for the jazz, his name is Justin Sanick.
00:49:07
Um I mean, you got a lot of praise for putting, you know, for some moves you made last year.
00:49:15
People were psyched.
00:49:16
They got Conley.
00:49:18
People were psyched. That got Bogdanovich.
00:49:20
That was a good move.
00:49:21
Bogdanovich was definitely a very good move.
00:49:23
Um, that's another excuse.
00:49:27
Jazz fans were making that had he not being injured for that for the reset, that maybe the jazz would have done a little bit better.
00:49:34
Uh, then And in the playoffs, there's no way we can know that, obviously, but that's what people are saying. That might be valid.
00:49:40
There's no way you could know that.
00:49:42
I mean, you have to.
00:49:43
You have thio live with what you put on the floor.
00:49:47
Um But I mean, Zanuck also made a made a couple of a couple of bad moves.
00:49:52
Like I I didn't like the Emmanuel Mudiay pick up, although I think they got the most out of him that they could have possibly gotten out of him because he's his, like, historically, been one of the worst players in the NBA.
00:50:07
And I think he was off the the bottom of the barrel of this year.
00:50:12
Faras play goes, um, e think, but he's still a veteran's minimum guy.
00:50:17
Um, you know, Moody is not not good.
00:50:21
And I think, yeah, I think the Jazz got off to a slow start and I think a big reason why they had to rely too much on moodier because they didn't have the depth in the backcourt.
00:50:31
Thio put a competent, ah, second unit point guard out.
00:50:36
I think that's a that's gonna be a priority.
00:50:40
Eso I think that's something I would say like the Ed Davis pickup was really bad.
00:50:48
E mean, I don't Davis was injured most of the year, but when he was when he wasn't injured, he was he was unbelievably ineffective.
00:50:57
He might be out of basketball.
00:50:58
He he might, his career might be over.
00:51:01
That's how that's how bad his play.
00:51:03
Waas.
00:51:04
So I think I think the jazz air in a ah lot tougher place than people give him credit.
00:51:10
I think they have a There's a really good chance they could be back in the lottery very soon.
00:51:16
Or they could be stuck in that dreaded middle ground of complacency for for years if they if they depending on the moves that they make.
00:51:28
So I think the Jazz Aaron like, kind of a really harder spot than a lot of people would say.
00:51:33
They don't have a ton of cap space.
00:51:35
They're gonna have to rely on that mid level exception to get someone I've seen just because, like the exception last year, might have been able to get a guy like Jeremy Grant, like a lot of people think that that's the kind of player they could get again.
00:51:51
And first of all, you have to.
00:51:52
You have Thio intrigue a guy enough to get him to want to play in Utah for a year, right at that level of money and then hope he over performs.
00:52:03
I don't know. I think that's a stretch.
00:52:05
So I think the Jazz were I think the Jazz are in a pretty tough spot.
00:52:11
I think I think I'm really I'm really interested to see what they dio.
00:52:14
I'm interested in seeing if they do the smart thing in my opinion and trade Rudy Gobert before the season gets started.
00:52:25
No, I just think it's gonna be interesting.
00:52:27
I think I don't think Gobert is just I'm just spitballing here something that came to my mind.
00:52:35
I know some people I know some people in Jazz Nation like, Oh, do you think we could get the first overall pick from Minnesota for Gobert? I wouldn't think so at all.
00:52:45
Although this this year's draft is supposedly gonna be pretty weak.
00:52:50
Um, now I don't think I don't think that's realistic Possibility.
00:52:55
So I don't know.
00:52:56
I think in jazz rooms have spot.
00:52:57
I'm gonna talk a little bit about them.
00:52:59
I'll probably talk more about them at length.
00:53:02
This was just kind of a trial run to see how things go.
00:53:05
Um, I gotta I found SportsCastr on Twitter, I think, and I just kinda wanted to give it a go.
00:53:15
It seems like it could be a really interesting platform, I might add it very well.
00:53:20
Could be a permanent addition to the no cyst to the no assist of sports, the Northeast of Sports Lineup.
00:53:30
Family of Platforms.
00:53:33
Right now you can find no assist on sub stack were also on social media on Twitter, Facebook and instagram notices.
00:53:41
Sports should be easy to find.
00:53:43
Um, I also have some merch available for sale.
00:53:47
If you're interested in Donovan Mitchell shirt that I designed, it's that same logo you can see right here.
00:53:52
Um, going to hit me up.
00:53:54
I'll show you where you can get that.
00:53:57
Tried to make that as affordable as possible.
00:53:59
Um, but anyway, this is this has been a good little run. Thanks again.
00:54:03

00:54:10
