Luce, Luce, salute your boy game A kids game, man back at you with another clutch points article.
I believe sitting right now is with Isaiah.
Were cooking is a So if you guys want to hear me talk and banter about nothing here, please.
Uh, please go over to ah Sims Channel so you could watch Isaiah f up some burgers, But soon the NBK sweet Isaiah man.
But, you know, I'm gonna get a story for a little bit.
And we got a lot to talk about, man, we got stuff to talk about. The draft, man.
We got stuff to talk about with this Chris Paul, James Harden soccer.
We got to talk about with CP three and that that room with the Lakers we got to talk about the bucks went in Covington and P. J. Tucker.
That means a lot of stuff bone in his MBA.
Uh, and you also got a bum ass.
Uh, Kendrick Perkins.
I don't even care to read it.
I think Kendrick Perkins is stupid, but he shut that.
James Harden is trying to team up to Katie and Kyra in Brooklyn.
He think there's some bad news, but again, Kendrick Perkins is a talking head now, and he's very stupid.
Um, just, uh you know, if you ever if you ever want to see me, that's fine.
But you know, not to say I respect as a man, but he's very He's a blowhard, and he's very uneducated about the sport he played.
But that's another topic for another day, man.
But let's let's talk about this hardened thing, man.
This is what I'm tired of.
I'm tired of all this hard in his heart.
So you come to tell me this dude, play with suits, everybody to chat.
Eddie, Eddie Rolling and H can You won 61 darling.
Everybody in here, man.
All the people that don't know GM dressy.
What up? What up? What up? What up? Um, let me talk about this hard thing, man.
This is why I get tired when we call players superstars.
Superstars are players who overcome the odds to win or get extremely close to winning, and they put the blame on the back.
This is how many players that James Harden talented players, right? And yes, Russell Westbrook has his issues right, but those first few months.
Our first few weeks Scuse me.
He had with James Harden.
His efficiencies were up big time.
Guy was him, like 40% from three close to 50% from the field.
What I'm saying and they do need help.
I mean, that whole trying to go to small place, extreme small ball didn't work.
But James Harden, how many people James are gonna push away? How many people don't push away to the owner realizes is not anyone else's.
Who's the issue? Push the way. Chris Paul.
When that first year of Chris Paul, I think that's when we saw the best James Harden.
I'm talking about the most points.
I'm talking about the most effective James Harden.
A guy could play on and off the ball.
A guy who is dangerous off outside outside have driven the ball and having a ball for 37% usage.
Right? And please guys hit those lights that you come in suits everybody.
You know what I'm saying? Then he gets rid of Chris Paul.
Get rid of Carmelo Anthony and I was the biggest fan of Carmelo Anthony, but I will admit at that time.
I will admit that was terribly too quick for Carmelo Anthony beat.
And I don't think it's all D'Antoni.
I think that was James Harden.
Right? Superstars find ways to play with the top players or other players.
I'm tired of the excuses.
We give people these caveats and then you want to say, This guy is better than Jordan, these guys, But you can't be better than these guys When you literally cannot play, We're not.
Look, we're not even talking about bums is one thing that James Harden played with bums is one thing and rest of Western when he's okay, See, played with bums.
But James Wise that play with Bombs Door.
I have an instrument with Westbrook, but he played with Westbrook.
You play with Theresa and Bond Boot, A P J.
Tucker play with Eric Gordon, play a cappella before they traded him, and everything is going into building up the profile of James Harden building up The profile of a player does not lead Thio winning unless that guys approached the Pearl of talent, even Michael Jordan.
The year before the Triangle King Michael Jordan was averaging, I believe, 35 points 53.
Fulfill eight rebounds, eight assists.
Any any coach who wants to just look at the ego.
Look at the player.
Say, Let me just build with that.
They were easily building that The text winners and Phil Jackson saw.
This system is not working right on what they do.
They had a system suits the text winners for that.
Well, I'm not a Bulls fan, but text when it was the architect of that and had a more effective system to nullify the Jordan rules.
Right? We're joining drives over over dribble.
Took the ball into his hands Too much.
Drove in the baseline, and they were basically.
Or when he drove into the near the baseline on the sides, they shut him down.
Suits everybody here, man.
New York Knicks Still flat.
What up? What up, Triborough? What up, John? Tell until what up? What up? I'm getting tired of this crap, man.
These guys push away, these guys push away coaching, they push away the people that come in and give you a different way to think about the game.
Right? And I understand their logic goes zonal ish, but I'm tired This where you sit there and you build the profiles place, right? Westbrook one that have always fake triple doubles, right? As soon as things that goes with a soon as he realized they realized, Oh, he realizes, ****, this is not winning basketball Now everybody wants to say, Oh, it's It's Ah, Billy Donovan's phone that is Billy Donovan's fold.
This is Westbrook Rain Fake triple doubles late into the season, so he get another M v p r.
Get the M V P so you can look artificially great, right? He gets the players he loses, Then he gets he gets trade and push away.
Now it is Billy Donovan's for How could Billy Donovan coach? This one told me out West. Now Harden.
He posted some pics on Instagram or Social Media talking about like, Oh, that's my friend.
He's trying to get Westbrook out because what's your nose is not a good system, but hard is not going to sit there and try toe try and dip down his stats to make the team better.
So I think this plan between the two right suits Jessica Prosky That's my dude from high school salutes and many Ramos salute salute.
So it's like you push away these players that you look up in what? So you want these people on ESPN and all these networks to sit there and say, Oh, James Harden, man, you didn't have to tell them You don't have no If you are a superstar, if I give you star level players, I'm not talking about even role players a bunch.
I'm talking about star level players.
It is up to you toe with If you don't want the coaching, if you don't want people who can make it, make you work harder and think hard and think on a high level to improve your game right.
If you don't wanna do it, you better win with your talent.
A prime example of that where he is very unfortunate.
He has two world championships and he was able to basically he had the media on his back or in his pocket.
We could basically and you could basically do whatever he wants.
If he's on the team that has a poor structure i e.
Cleveland and I, even the Lakers.
Ever since Jerry Buss died, that team has been mhm.
That's what I'm talking about.
Dogs like it is trash, man.
You recall these people star level players, how they start level players when they got to trade this person, this person, this person and when they get traded taking responsibility Now James Harden talking about all you're playing Brooklyn, Let's talk about the Brooklyn thing.
Let's talk about the Brooklyn thing.
How in the f Will Westbrook.
Harden, Kyrie, Irving and Katie worked together.
You got one passive aggressive guy.
Probably harden, and you got to prima donna divas one dude who didn't like a Atkinson, partially because I just want them to run during practice.
I could have sworn you're supposed to run in practice because it's basketball.
You're supposed to exert yourself a little bit more in practice.
So when it's game time, your stamina and endurance is tip top, so you're not gassed out.
Do you have Katie, who's an Alfa personality but a beta mentality and he wants to go to Brooklyn? Kendrick Perkins.
This is talking about this.
Why the basket brings it down because you sold yourself out to the casual fans who on Twitter who all they care about if LeBron James says something, if Katie said something to me, but they can't even tell you what the average three point off percentages in MBA or where it hovers around, what a 50 40 50 40 90 means you sold out to that MBA. So now you have tow.
Gather all these players to play with each other, man, and it's trash.
It creates a James Harden has the as towns as he is.
He has some of the most ugly.
It's the ugliest basketball I've ever seen you, I think she listened more to thunder podcast, bro.
Literally go to ESPN.
I don't even listen ESPN like that.
But ESPN literally had segments where they're blaming. I think.
Smith, who's blaming Billy Donovan. I don't go to thunder podcast.
I'm not saying the thunder themselves, but there are people in the media who are blaming Billy Donovan for what was happening.
The thunder and I know for a fact that ESPN because I saw a clip, I think it was.
I think I want to say Stephen A.
Smith, who saved us who and he doesn't know basketball, but you get that narrative out there, you got You got a few people on ESPN.
Rachel Nichols who vote for these awards, right? Who vote for who M.
Is like the lady tried to say it was all Oh, it was a ***ist thing when the lady didn't vote 80 on any of the three all NBA teams.
I do not like the Lakers.
I don't like what 80 did by running to the lake.
I don't like that.
But for me to sit here and say 80 is not one of, if not the most dominant player in the NBA are you? And these are the people who are voting.
She devotes 80 on three all NBA teams.
So trust me, I know what I'm talking about.
What I'm saying that these people in the media are idiots.
These people in the media, they'll sit there and go the narrative that oh, such and such hardening haven't had everything given to him and put it accomplished on people not talking about Oh, he's gonna play a time out.
Granted, he was young when he did this.
Remember? Harder was going in between the lineup when he was with okay.
See that? Last year he was ineffective.
He wasn't as effective starting, so they kept switching back between starting come off the bench.
Now a guy who's not.
Let's be honest, a guy who's not improved his game to make other players around him better his team better, right? He's gonna say and tell me he's gonna go to a team like Brooklyn and play with two other superlative talents who need the ball in their hands a lot like a D who need probably bombings hands more just to get himself comfortable with the Achilles injury.
That yet MBA is a joke, Bro is a joke.
That's why I know people might laugh at the Knicks because we're terrible.
But I'm actually happy that we, at least when we build this foundation, we at least have a play in R.
Barrett, who I believe will take the coaching properly.
And I think that we have Coach's Woody and Tom Thibodeau that together I think that I think that they would fit each other better.
One is good on the tactics.
I was gonna speaking to communicate with the players right, and they both got the deficiencies.
But the other person's friends kind of hide that I don't want a situation where I don't know.
I do want to superstar on his team, but I don't want a situation where we destroy the team.
Right? Any Monica on the team? Now? We have.
We'll end up like the Houston Rockets.
Little to no cap space could only bring on crap role players when you're trying to trade the only who's gonna take the Westbrook contract, man, Somebody told me I might.
Look, I'm Hey, I'm I don't know. *******.
Somebody tell me who's gonna take the West for a contract.
It is not a salary dump, and they have to give up picks.
I'll give these places albatross contracts because they have splashed dunks because they create fake triple doubles.
You have these so called ****ytics guys. Daryl Morey.
Where is he now? We gotta like saying that that that But Oh, come on, sir.
You think you think yo, that Ah, lot of these bad teams.
You know, I think the NBA, for the most part, I think some of these terrible teams, you know, let me speak for them I would say say, I don't want Westbrook on the Knicks.
I don't I don't care No one says.
Everybody is enamored with his explosion.
God forbid, I never wanted that injury in Russell Westbrook.
In my life, I don't wish nothing on anybody like that.
I want these guys make as much money, build their kids up to send the kids of school, have beautiful families, grow old to their 1900.
Whatever. Have beautiful lives, man.
At the end of the day, man is a black man making money.
God bless. That's with that.
But literally, if Westbrook has one bad injury, God forbid, knock on wood, he doesn't get it.
One bad injury and Russell Westbrook is a shell of himself.
The guy I Q level is very low when playing.
The guy doesn't process the game on a higher level.
He just doesn't.
What is here is a high level combo guard who's extremely explosive fun to watch on, and I stole it from chronicles of you of anybody watches Chronicles of June on YouTube, he said.
Russell Westbrook is like Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
Extremely fun to watch, but absolutely no substance.
And now oh, I'm this'd the funny thing.
I'm theme the direction.
I'm unsure the direction of the team and really, And when it comes to the culture thing, when someone talks about culture, guys had to realize that's not the owner.
He's talking about the best player.
Usually when you talk about culture and is built around Ah, superlative talent, the culture is built around that person.
When Michael Jones and the Bulls the culture built around him.
Magic Johnson's on the Lakers, the culture is built around him and his personality.
Why they still think the Laker mantra still exist today.
Like Showtime Lakers.
It still has that people come to the lake l.
Yes, I don't Hollywood also have flair because Magic Johnson they kind of rebuilt, not say rebuilt because obviously had great players before Elgin Baylor.
They had well, Chandler for a few years.
You know what I'm saying? They had Ah, uh, who's gonna logo? Oh, my gosh.
He says gm of the Clippers came in his name. Jerry.
Uh, goodness gracious cameras, Lena.
Right, But they built around.
They built around, uh, what's the name? Magic Johnson here with the Knicks were still built around well, the culture is still yearning for the Patrick Ewing years, right? And we went to the players of Carmelo.
But our mentality, That's why we get hyped up.
When we get a defensive player who plays hard, it works out what we think would be that the Warriors built around Steph Curry. Splash Brothers.
So if someone criticized it says the culture, they're talking about the best players.
So Westbrook allegedly, is talking about James Harden and maybe James Harden like, Yeah, do that.
I don't give it God, I don't give a but this guy legit hardened.
I'm not sure he cares about basketball like that, man. I'm sorry.
The triple step in the travels of that crap That's not winning basketball.
Why the hell kind of thank you, Johnson, until I just get ****ed at this because we stay here and we wanted to compare this dude, We want to say this guy's the greatest shooter of all time, This guy back in the day, James Harden not surviving back in the day, guys, when free agency wasn't that easy and you had to try to win with the team and being all around better player.
Well, you couldn't travel.
What guys could hand check you.
I don't wanna hear how James Harden is better than this.
And that guy? No.
Is this Is this amazing how these guys consulted the game that like I used to I used to love basketball hard body where I used to watch everybody's game.
It's trash, man.
Now you want to trade this play trade this place training for Woo The Knicks better not pull this trade, man.
The Knicks have a nice Watership down the only player I would trade for and if I don't have to give up any pics of CP three because he makes your team better and he could get you to that foundation, right? The foundation basketball.
You could bring in a point guard.
You could bring in a careless of play under CP three, right? You could get a guy like killing Hayes.
Killing Hayes would benefit big time because killing Hayes, I believe off the dribble, he shoots like uh, like 40% 3.
So is three point percentage is down like it's like it's like 20%.
But if killing Hayes was not the most athletic can develop off ball skills playing off the CP three.
Kind of like, How s she a developed? You have a guy who's gonna meet his stealing a lot better and the confidence? A lot of players on the Knicks.
They played poorly because of lack of confidence in the offensive games.
Not, uh, Frank, A lot of guys.
It's not necessarily a fault, per se, but a lot of it is their fault, right? They're just they're just not built like they needed coaching.
But if you get a coach on the floor like CP three is gonna get you in the proper position, I'm not trading for Westbrook. So he gave me.
I even have a co workers joking me.
Oh, what's Westbrook with a splash dunk? Oh my gosh, one of the most amazing don't have ever seen Knicks down by 27.
That's if there's a difference between great basketball players and great winners.
Westbrook is not that no offensive him and hard is not that West with the same person who is bragging about scoring 40 points against Patrick Beverley.
Patrick Beverley is like, Yeah, but it took you 40 shots and we won the game.
Wait, just we just got We just got like, it's terrible, man.
It's terrible, man.
It's this MBA suits everybody.
Salute! Chevalle Robinson! Salute, man.
Mark, who's mark? Salute? Sandy social salute.
I just I just get tired of this crap, man.
And now you got.
And by the way to care, lose video is basically done.
I'm just literally I just did one more voice thing I want to set out tomorrow so people could watch it because I don't know how late you guys saying Oh, and by the way, if you guys want to see me battle big freezing tonight at 11.
11, 11, 30 is gonna be late because freeze, he has to work late If you guys want to come on a late on watching battle.
Naysmith versus vessel, Nate Smith versus Vessel.
Oh, but yeah, well, Zo God.
So if you guys wanna watch that, it will be on my channel and decreasing channel Naysmith versus Fossil.
He's going for Naysmith.
He just wants I don't know what's wrong in his Martha, Obviously I'm going for herself.
So come and come and see that we're just gonna be arguing.
I got some points.
Um, he really has no hope against me. So again, that's 11.
Steven Fox, invested by Ko Simon is not even I don't know.
Sometimes you just have to school people, you know? You know what? We have a little niece and nephew, and you just gotta school real quick.
Like it was like, Come on, you really wanna play ball like, no s phenol, wherever you are.
Whenever you see me, I'm gonna I'm gonna bust bust your ass and balls.
I'm like, Look, when you get older and I was like, Get on, I get older, then we'll give you that.
But now I'll kill you in basketball.
But so to know, Espino, that's my dude, man.
And Suter's father, uh, being a chat Sometimes you probably working probably right now, but to the man has a good family right there.
Where was I At O and CP three.
And a lot of things that going on right now are rumors.
Right? So CP three Yeah, Cp three was, um, the whole thing about Oh, now they're saying that he doesn't wanna goto Lakers.
Um and I knew that I knew there was something behind that they're basically trying to build up.
So I do think that the thunder think I think that there may be a deal to bring CP three to the Knicks now. Obviously, I don't.
I think the next, Like, we're not giving up any draft picks, right? Forgot to CP three, right? His own offensive.
And then right after that happened, then you saw and I think believes from John.
Actually, I don't know how believable John Michael is.
I'm not issuing him.
I'm just saying I don't know how believable that rumor was, but just say that was then you saw right after that room and come out that the Lakers, he was also interested in going the Lakers.
And now it's coming at CP 39 Street going the Lakers because maybe CP three is like, Look, if you guys can change me, let me go to a team that wanna go to right? So you got guys like teams, like maybe the next where they're gonna use him like they're gonna build around CP three for the next two years, not built around like oh, well, this is our future for next 10 years, but they're gonna He's gonna be a vital piece for that next team.
And then possibly they got to revive New York and I think he would love that.
I think in his head he doesn't mind playing in the bright lights with a team that's losing like that.
But to be a part of that project, I think he looked at it favorably.
He goes to the Lakers.
LeBron James's hand on the ball from that point.
Four position, Probably 30 30% usage, Extremely high usage.
Where CPU gonna fit as a golf ball guard playing off of LeBron James, who probably would need a ball facilitating like that more than than than, say, Harden at least hard.
And show that you play off LeBron James cannot play a ball like that.
Well, he's not willing to and can't shoot the ball like he's not gonna do that.
So Cp three just doesn't work in the Lakers.
So what? The Lakers? Okay, so I was trying to trying to drum up his trade value right and get us or whoever was working for okay, I'm just saying theoretically.
Well, hypothetically excuse me trying to drop the trade value.
So they're now other teams in this bidding war.
For him, I was like, Oh, we have to give up a draft pick.
Meanwhile, Lakers like we don't have it in for this guy, another team that you go to the sons, right? But what would the sons have to give up? Let's Let's break this down, sons contracts.
What would the sons have to give up the CP three? Because obviously a guy like TP three would be except for that team.
So for the next year, 2020 Aaron Baynes comes off the books at five million.
Oh, Dario Saric at three million comes off.
And then Torrico Well, $3 was even though he was another.
Then Jevon Carter comes off as well to see Got Devin Booker, 29 million Ricky Rubio at 17 million.
Let me just, you know, suits everybody in a SportsCastr chat your big freeze about to get your ass kicked.
11 o'clock, man, But yeah, Devin Booker at 29 million, obviously you ain't going nowhere.
Ricky Rubio could come off 17 million Kelly uber at 14 million.
I think that they wanna build, they wanna have Kelly uber did, uh, Rubio.
Kelly Brook definitely helped out Devin Booker because he had, ah, legit D three and D player with some upside to play play with playing alongside with Kelly, you break.
You have a guy like Ricky Rubio where you could play.
He played a lot more off ball.
Devin Booker had, like, his usage rate with a lot lower, but his efficiency was like 42% from the field to 48% which is amazing.
9% of the field.
That's over on my back, so you shot 46.
5% last year and shot 48.
9% which is still good.
That's still very good.
Three point percentage went up from 32.
4% and his usage went down to went down from 32.
I mean, it's not that great.
I mean, still heavily on the ball or he's heavily used in that offense are still part of it.
But obviously, to get lower usage and higher efficiency, I mean skies.
Linda, if you get a supportive point guard, we get a CP three that team.
So let me look at the contract with the Seahawks.
So you got Kelly.
You Bray at 14 million DeAndre, and he ain't going over a 10 million.
Uh, Aaron Baynes comes up.
He's only five. Frank Kaminsky could go.
McCall Bridges at four million.
I think you might keep him.
Uh, Cameron Johnson.
I don't know of any son.
Sons Fans out there could tell me, because evil he's having, like, eight points, 8.
8 points or 9% from 3.
45% from the field.
This is about I don't know.
I just I want to speak from this off 39% from three with 4.
That's pretty good eyes.
They're going to use a three d play.
Only averaged 22 minutes a game.
Probably somebody looking for for the future.
But you talk about CP three and get Devenport attack that hum over the hump.
And what is it that the what seems gonna see the cap? The cap is gonna be at 1109 is it right now? So I'm not sure.
But yet, um, if you could get on the sun's man, that would be That would be amazing.
Dario Saric comes off a three million.
I mentioned that tie Jerome, check the hollow.
So their payroll only be 93 right now.
I believe it's 10 2020 21 nb cap is gonna be the salary cap for the 20 22,021 NBC suspect this project to rise 150 million at the center at one of nine million.
But this was early.
They said this right? This is before the events that have occurred in the world.
This is January 32,020.
Um, a c trying to see what this is, what is gonna be, uh and for some reason, none of my another sites of blowing up properly.
What is wrong? This internet, um, and Brooklyn is over.
Bosses over the cap.
Going stays over the count by 10 million.
So they gotta pay that tax.
But Justus well, just assume is 100 something.
So they got almost 10 million to play with and they got e don't know how to make that happen, but you get CPI during that team.
So we got 93 million.
Where's my calculator? You got 93 million.
I don't know what the cap is exactly gonna be.
It's gonna be 95 at 109 but they say it's a 109 minus 93.
Got 16 minus 40.
So you got to get rid of 24 million out of this.
And that means what? Ricky Rubio.
So you got seven million left.
They get rid of a you get rid of a Frank Kaminsky at five and get rid of Ah, l E o Kobo.
You could you could do that or get rid of their pain.
My bad. Get rid of pain.
Get rid of Aaron Pain Rubio and Frank Kaminsky.
Yep, that works that works.
Sons. Sons could make this work.
Man. That's definitely even.
Let's see what you guys are saying, man.
Staying at 109 Thank you, Mike.
Thank you, Mike.
Because I was arena article.
There's before the whole world events and stuff happened.
So, uh, even before, yeah, I know you could go over the tax.
Um, get to 1 24 paying tax.
Yeah, you could do that.
But, um oh, no, I'm extremely conservative when it comes to I even trying to sniff that because I also still want some space because, I mean, you could probably get I don't know exactly what the sons need.
Uh, obviously, sometimes you wanna feel your rocks with three D players, role players, big man who could run the floor rebound.
Um, but I don't watch the sunset of somebody trying on my expert.
I think that CP three with a Devin Booker would be stupid would be stupid.
And you got eight.
Oh, my gosh, man, that would be a watershed moment, man.
I think that sons might be a contender then and then you do have to get a point guard of draft behind CP three on in this draft.
Let's look up to my draft.
Might be a much of my draft out yet.
Let's go Where, uh, where sons Pig? Yeah, Phoenix son pick.
Oh, they got their picking at 10.
**** Phoenix Suns picking that 10.
Now they mind draft that it is a little weird they got.
They got the Phoenix Suns picking.
I don't think. Killing Hayes.
The Chicago Bulls.
They got the Chicago Bulls taken on the Congo, but they already got, uh, what to do with the big head.
He plays a four or five powerful he could play.
Also plays center times.
He's always he's like, injured, injured three times.
Um, okay, Chicago Bulls.
What is this guy's name? Starts with a W.
What is your name? A big head to window card.
It that dude, I don't know about the stump taking a jungle.
My draft dinette got them.
But I don't see killing his phone, but you can pick a guy.
I mean, you could pick it to reps.
Secretary scares me, man.
I mean, is it kind of? It's kind of You could pick a care of Lewis and having player behind a Chris Paul, but I think you want more of a natural facility.
If Carlos comes in place behind Chris Paul, maybe he can learn and develop his game on a higher level.
But I think he also needs playing time to I'm not sure if you just stashing.
Uh, you know, I'm not sure about that killing Hayes, though.
You drive, can you have a CP three? There might be a lot of jam, because now you have you been talking? Obviously, we're gonna play the three.
You have a book at the to what I'm saying.
So you need maybe Kelly Hayes.
You could kind of stashing away given spot minutes.
Uh, they want to really play small.
I mean, I doubt you play will be at the I mean, just be stupid.
Crazy used to have a and so be weird.
You have no protector in the front court with 18, but like killing Hayes could be a project.
I just don't see killing his falling down there.
You guys were talking about Doesn't matter before because we're training up.
Uh, I don't know about that. I take McCain.
You talk about James McCain from the White Sox? Yeah, I might have to go out there because real Moto's acting all diva like you don't want to come to the Mets acting like you don't want to come where my son Steve Cohen is owning the Mets right now.
And want to spend where sending all the sins, talking about yo, come over here to talk about.
I think about would be fit to be fit for New York.
So I playing games removed.
So you want to stay with the Phillies? No one cares about Philadelphia baseball, bro.
No one cares, bro. Come over to the mess.
I playing games, bro.
I don't know what's wrong with you.
You wanna say with the Phillies? And do what? And do what We're talking about baseball later.
Uh, both secondary.
They might take Denny man.
Then he scares me.
Man, I got a feeling that he might be like Hezonja, man.
I watched some of his highlights and he reminds me, just like his only did when he was at Barcelona coming out coming into the draft.
And you know what happens to those guys? Don't.
First of all, you draft him into, like, a wrong system and you don't develop the magical all over the place with the development of Amazonia.
Say which I'll give him that, at least where now? Hezonja.
You know, he's just he's seeing his rope.
You never really had probably development the magic.
That's what happens with these European place to get these high expectations put on them.
But if you put them in a system that doesn't really develop them or really fit them, and you expect them coming to do what he started to come and do.
What? Luca donkeys Just like a donkeys, a pearl talent.
But he looks even better because they basically can't the system.
You've draft these guys from overseas.
You have to make the curve.
Ah, lot more, a lot less.
Speak for them a lot more smooth for them on lies, guys, They drafted European players and say, You know, do the do the Dirk Nowitzki for me.
Hey, what do the Luca for me do that? Do the driving Petrovic's for me.
Driving a Patriot? Do the Arvydas Sabonis for me What you do.
That's why a lot of European bus occurs.
Not necessary because they suffer because you don't build around.
You don't develop them.
Yeah, Z as you guys saw my eyes here.
You hear the boat? The bucks wanna, uh, tree, Robert Covington and P. J. Tucker.
Let's see about that.
Robert Covington, P.
So Bucks, contracts, profits, contracts If you're gonna start to have to probably get picks to some of these players on some of these teams, But the Bucks really don't got space like that.
Bucks got 132 for next year.
Way got 132 for next year.
Yeah, we They got a lot of dead money.
Got, like, seven million.
No, they got, like, 889 million ish dead money.
They got two million going The Larry Sanders John Liu are.
Wow, That's the name I ever heard in.
Wow, John loor loor Wow.
I haven't heard that name.
It was drafted high, wasn't he? Wasn't the Pistons.
That was that was on the bases.
There wasn't a pisces all the any paying him and they playing murders.
What? Who? ****, this is, you know, MBA That guaranteed money is a lovely This is always really bumming it.
Um, yeah, they got Chris Mills had 33 Yanis at 27.
Eric Bledsoe 16 Brook Lopez a 12 George Hill a nine ilyasova at seven.
So I was, like, 50 years old.
So this dude lied about his age.
I don't know what that was.
An alien Robin Lopez at five D.
J. Wilson at four.
Dante de Vicenzo.
Three Western Matthews there, too.
And they got dinosaurs to Cuba at 1.7.
And they got a lot of that money. So they got proof.
Let's see, How do you make this work? So Robert Covington is at 12 p.
So if you trade them so they get rid of the get rid of Westbrook, somehow you could treat you could train a blood.
So and then you just dump in a Wezi Matthews.
You could make that work.
Uh, and I think with P.
Tucker and coming tonight, uh, come and tell me he has one more year after this year and P.
J. Tucker. This will be his last year, so that's expiring.
So that's actually ah, benefit to the books.
Um, yeah, you could do that.
But then Eric Bledsoe.
God ****, you got a few more years.
I don't know if you want to take that contract on.
Hey, does have a few more years is to be weird, But then I mean, the bucks looking and try to get deep in the players with possibly last Yanis we might not stay there, so they might be looking like screw.
We'll take Well, no, it will be the but will be the Rockets.
You don't wanna take the contract, so yeah, I don't know who don't know how this works.
The rockets rebuilding.
I'm not sure you want every blood.
So therefore about three years and Brooklyn, Who else? I said, Oh, my God.
Keep coming. My mouth. Someone said, Stop in my mouth when I talk.
So you got Eric Bledsoe and then, um was he Matthews? Only be he's expiring.
But Bledsoe not sure if you want them there.
That long man misuse.
You guys were talking about baseball? Baseball for the guys who missed it, man, I had a baseball episode on Tuesday.
I'm kinda have ah Mets Weekly, So please go check me out on Mets Weekly.
I had my first episode basically extolling Steve Cohen and happy about the new ownership.
Somebody said, Who is my favorite draft prospect? Um, this drop, I don't really have a favorite draft prospect.
For say, bro, I think is more so about who I think fits the team best.
Let me go to that Avery Vasquez Slew Every to every, hopefully subscribe to my channel.
You like the video on everything? Uh, every vast was I like my personal.
Like the most of the Knicks is Devon vassal.
Um I think he's the best fit for the team.
We need shooting.
We need defense at that to position.
I think he plays.
You played really well for Arjun.
Whichever point guard we bring in, I think that he opens the lanes for the point.
Guards who can't shoot or you need helps.
You need toe get into the heart of paint.
Not have defense has collapsed on him.
I think that his defense gonna help guys like Mitchell Robinson stay out of foul trouble.
So we don't have to see Mitch Robinson, Julius Randle get abused by Kemba Walker like they did last year.
Where Mitch Robbins, out because of foul trouble and camera walking, keeps driving into Julius Randle and drawing files.
What I'm saying to me, the guys you know, his wingspan is very long.
So it is very long.
So I think that's a boom for for For the Knicks.
I think he fits that This team the best.
We don't the Knicks have been going after too many times.
We've been going after these high boom or bust prospects or guys who fit a really narrow vision of what we want to do, right as much like Frank.
He fit what Phil Jackson is trying to do, which was operate from the triangle, right? But once Phil Jackson is going, you know, where else is Frank going? Soon? Waas, I'm saying.
Where else is he? How? How? How how is he ascending outside of that? What I'm saying so to me.
Boston sense of, of course, Marquis.
Salute, salute, salute and marquees had a video on Pink Floyd.
Dark side of movement.
Pink Floyd's my favorite band.
What is my favorite band, rock band of all time? And I'm really ****ed. I didn't get to see that.
I wasn't all that episode, not blaming Marquis.
So I gotta do a better job and checking my I don't know if somebody I don't get a lot of you and tribal, and also a few people don't get their alerts like on time just really weird.
Um, especially from YouTube like sportscasts.
I get it like that.
I don't know what's wrong with YouTube plays a lot of games because I would have been there in a heartbeat for Pink Floyd.
That's my favorite rock group.
Um, Frank Frank is gonna go to contentment.
That's obviously I think Frank is gonna go to a top contender.
Um, I think the Maverick Spurs Toronto Raptors, those type of teams they could bring a defensive guy off the bench in and, you know, in garbage mints. Whatever.
Get him the confidence enough to shoot the threes now from the corner.
He has improved, but still again.
Frank doesn't take enough.
If you think that's a market improvement, right? Like it's just not enough, man.
As much as I like Frank, I'm not paying Frank 10 million not paying him 567 million to do what he's been doing for the past few years.
Do you see? You see Celtics talking about trading 14 and Gordon Hayward for Myles Turner? That would work, bro.
I said it time and time again. If they don't.
If they don't do that trade not, say I've been talking about that trade per se, but I've been saying they need a They need to draft a guy like like Jaylin Smith.
They need a big man with space, the floor, shoot a magical run the floor or run a play down low as well to run, run the rim beurre in protective Jaylin.
Smith would fit that Celtics offense perfectly, Man, I'm telling you, I'm telling you, Mark my words.
Jaylin Smith goes to the right team.
I'm not talking about a team with 30 billion other forwards.
And, big man, I'm talking about the right team like the Celtics, where they like to play small and they build their offense around, UH, Jaylen Jaylen Brown, his high efficiency and Jason Tatum.
And that's the way play bro and Kemba Walker having a big man who could run the pick and roll with him and space out.
Oh, Jaylin Smith fits that offense, per they, they and, well, playing this look.
James Smith does have forces game, right? He has become a better pass.
A better decision maker, right? I think that Jaylin Smith can.
He can't do that with a team.
It's a lot easier to be a better passer when you have guys with guys who've been scored, right, guys from space and you feel confident passing them right, guys who can get open from picks it on the other side and get over to Jaylin Smith.
If he's in the evening in the paste, if he's in the post.
What I'm saying Jaylin Smith will fit that offense perfectly.
I know people talk about Daniel story today and trying to fit Piper that perfect that offense perfectly, too.
Yeah, but they don't have album.
They don't have ah, dynamic big man who could score like Gino Smith.
And it has an upside like James.
We could check the Rockets, the Rockets.
We check the Celtics lineup right now.
They don't have that man they're playing through, uh dot These are always it's not just ties.
Whatever it is, right.
The power forwards.
You're dealing with him.
No, I do like Grand Williams.
He's solid, but he's like, uh, he's like a rebounder, dirty, dirty, clean up kind of guy.
He's not. He's not a he's not as dynamic.
James Smith in his cancer could go.
I, whatever, uh, instantaneous facing the full like that.
Is he great down low? Yeah, but he's He's a very outdated center, and in fact, he has been playing good defense like that.
Offensive down low, if you wanna dump it in the post.
Yeah, but other than that, no, I'm good And outside of those forts what they got.
I saw those forwards.
I'm talking about forwards and centers.
Taco Fall is a nice he's a He's a nice piece, but it's not a guy who just got to get maybe 2030 million, 2025 minutes at his height because he's that big and the quickness not there.
He's probably getting really tired.
You know, big, big guys like that.
We moved forward like the fast which is not there.
That's not the guy I don't think gonna build around like that with taco phone Eso A guy like like James Smith fits them perfectly.
If it's some perfectly broke and salute to all the people who just subscribe to my channel, man, that means a lot to me.
Salute to you guys, um pick and roll it up just like who said that again.
That was ah Booker, right or the sons when they play this right picking room every time, man, every time who you think is our best free agent choice, that's a good question.
Who's our best free agent choice right now? So the top free agent choice that fit our team or the vision I think that teams should have would be guys like Christian would.
You can say Burton's I'm not.
High on Burton's is a I'd rather want a Christian would.
But Christian What kind of skills? Just because he blew up in this one year now, he had issues where and suit to record for points out reports said that, you know, uh, you know, he had issues in college because of UNLV, where he was £15 overweight, his cultures telling teams not to draft him.
So maybe the attitude think may have been his citizens about basketball, right and in little spurts to score.
Hearing in the embassy has been on five teams, right? That says a lot.
You can't stick on a team despite the fact you have talent.
He goes the Pistons who suck, but he's put up these numbers, so it kind of scares me But when we're talking about a guy because we're not gonna be a driver James Smith, I think I don't think we're gonna draft even though Daniel Taro, right, You start Mitch and you still have Randall here, but I want to move away from Randall, but Christian would definitely be a free agent.
I'm looking at I'm scared about Fred VanVleet Slough to Tony Crow, who's talking about this other day? I'm scared about Fred VanVleet man, Um, giving all that money to him to be elite guard.
And he's talking about, you know, I want the money.
I've never been able Thio basically play likely guard, But to me, man, if you haven't shown to do it before yeah, I mean, he's been playing.
He plays on a team with a lot of talent, give him credit in the playoffs.
His numbers went up exponentially.
Uh, but I did seem strong in that one game where carry, uh, calorie was out.
Um, you know about how many games that calories? I remember seeing one game in the last year.
They played before he got seriously, got eliminated.
Hey, definitely struggled when Caroline was out.
I think for every family needs to play with another point guard whose aggressive we could take the attention away from it and get played more off the off the guard.
Play on the perimeter.
Hit those threes drive from the basket when defense tryingto are recovering him because because of an aggressive point who drove into the heart of defense.
Um, yeah, that's also think, Andrew, Brian, Andre Brian is tough because you have Mr Robinson here, even though I wouldn't mind experiment with that, because I think Mr Robinson's athletic enough that you regard the four or five not say it's a major leak.
But some of these four is gonna space out a little bit.
Not say he's, Ah, great perimeter defender, but I think that he be able to plan.
I think both those guys can do it, but they don't get.
It's still a big leap because Christian would is not shown again extremely small sample size, and I might what you're gonna get Christian with 12 15 million for that.
By sure you do it.
Let's see MBA 2021 or 2020 free agents and again, facing starts on 20th and you could sign players on the 22nd? Uh, so let's see.
Any day isn't going anywhere.
I would give I'm trying to get Brandon Ingram a restricted contract, which restricted free agent contract.
I don't think he leaves, but again, I don't know what the pelicans doing per se We got Stan Van Gundy.
Uh, you know, I, Stan Van Gundy, could be even though I think that he's not gonna be, well, something is not.
I don't know what's gonna happen with them, but are they gonna try Bills I on? You can't do it on because he's, too.
It's gonna be too injury prone.
It's not serious about art.
They're not, say it's not serious.
I'll give the benefit of doubt and say that the whole weight issue has not been controlled, so we don't know exactly.
Uh huh, You just it's too much to try to build around side, so I think they're going to resign.
Brennan Ingram, for evidently I read, said, I ain't trying to him Vanilla.
Gone are you could stay away from me.
He's getting older.
I've seen lumbering Gordon Hayward's tough because I don't want any of the Celtics picks.
Uh, this year 14, 26 30.
Just not appetizing enough for me in the draft where talent falls off once you get past, like the early teens.
Uh, if you give me a future picks next year, but I gave it to myself, you know, it's gonna be in the playoffs.
So those pictures gonna be relatively uses, right? So, um, lets you give me a call from him, But when he was a little bit tough, man, I think he needs a ball lot in his hands.
We probably look, feels uncomfortable playing with all those scores to have kind of surpassed him in terms of effectiveness, relevance, relevance on that team.
So I think a little tough toe have him there.
DEMAR DeRozan na headcase, Not the graves of outside shooters.
I'm good from Andre Drummond.
Good on him, my colleague.
Vontae tao? Nope.
Jeffrey Grant is one.
I do like every Fournier.
His play option.
Next year's worth 70 million.
So he's probably gonna leave Bogdan Bogdanovic from Sacramento Kings.
He's restricted Joe Harris.
Uh, e I think I have to see what Dr.
Oh, my bad Simpson.
Oh, my bad. My bad.
How you doing, man? What's going on, man? How you feeling? I'm feeling good, man.
A lot of talking about basketball.
Talking about Isaiah is terrible cooking.
Hopefully, you know, everybody is safe.
No one's throwing up from the terrible Smashburger that he made you guys e almost your house.
No, he's not in my house.
Okay? Yeah, yeah.
Keep your bathroom right now.
Yeah, he's he's putting out.
He's putting out the fire.
You put Lord, you Isaiah, turn off the broil.
You don't have to broil everything, bro.
Just cause you see fire out there, you don't have to burn all your food.
She's never fired.
Fire! Fire! Long went off and everything, man.
Fire alarm went off.
E you don't have to tell us way I could have predicted it would have you guys doing? Let me let me Let me knew him out.
But yeah, man, Very interesting things happen in the world to the NBA.
Already killed your boy, Westbrook and Harden on their little imagination with the rockets I killed hard already about, you know, because I'm tired of people having a superstar label place on and they're pulling all this stuff out.
So obviously, let me just read a little bit from the clutch points article.
Um, of course, I can't find it now because my computer stupid, but basically, essentially, you got you talked about the other day to that Harden or Westbrook bases, like, say, get me out of here.
I'm not really confident in the direction of the team.
And you have James Harden came out the data which Westbrook a happy 32nd birthday, talking about Allah as they come.
I think it's a mutual thing where, you know, hardened basically, you know, in his head, he's probably Look, Darren Moore is going.
Maybe I'm gonna be going soon or something like that, but I think that is like, Hey, you gotta get this is my team.
You know, you could go someplace else.
You know, it is what it is.
I'm gonna run it.
And in Westbrook's, like, All right, fair enough.
Um, and when to me, what he says, talking about the culture of the team, he's talking about James Harden because James Harden, anytime you have a super so called superstar level play that the team built around you are the culture. E.
Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan.
You build around those guys, even Patrick You in New York is still built around the or of Patrick Ewing and that defensive team of the nineties. Yummy.
So you know, Westbrook.
I think it's kind of mutual behind the scenes, but again, to me, it's another example off trying to build up from the talent and individual talent of a player, but not necessarily to the strength of a team.
And you know, now it's gonna blow apart.
We got Kendrick Perkins talking about Harden is gonna go to the Nets.
I don't know how that works when you have three ball dominant players who are divas in their own right.
How do you feel about I know you spoke about on your episode yesterday? Uh, how do you feel about it? About Russell Westbrook coming to the Knicks? Or or just what's going on in Houston? Everything.
Everything. You wanna issue number? Go ahead.
I think I mean, I think it was inevitable.
We talked about this a long time ago on this show, actually.
We talked about it a long time ago that we didn't know how was how, like, how is it really gonna play out in Houston? We knew that, Houston, you know, they came out and said that they're trying to win with those guys.
They're not trying to move from this. That and the other thing.
But the continuity in the chemistry just wasn't there.
And it was never going to work, right? Never gonna work.
And I think from the beginning there was a lot of people that ask questions about whether or not listen When they played for O. K.
Russell Westbrook was the guy, him and Kevin Durant with the guys.
And then, um, James Harden was coming off the bench, right? He was He was basically that third, that third wheel at that time.
Now you kind of change roles, right? James Harden is in Houston.
He's the man and his team.
And Russell Westbrook is, you know, he's not the third wheel, but he's not the guy.
You know what I mean? Eso You could see that where maybe there could be some kind off some issues between the two players.
You heard the story.
My mic real quick is dropping.
I gotta get a new mike arm.
What's going on? Um, you heard the story about, and I think it's still falling.
You heard a story about when they were in, I guess they had a game against Portland, and they went into the locker room and Russell Westbrook was telling everybody, you know, he started with himself.
This is what I need to do to get better.
Uh, you know, for the team and this is what everyone else needs to do in James Harden didn't really like it, right? He wasn't amenable to that.
It was kind of like a article this or just like there was, ah, short, a short article.
I forgot who it's by, but it was a reputable source.
You know, other players were kind of cool.
James Harden, you know, didn't take to it too well, I guess you know what I'm saying.
So it's like it seems like it was inevitable.
And who knows, maybe the rockets at this point, maybe the rockets say, Let's just break down and just start, Start over.
But well, we're not mhm, e.
I mean, you tried it with the two.
It wasn't successful It's probably not gonna be successful.
If you want to keep James Harden.
I get it, you know? Then try to. But now you're trying.
You're starting all over to rebuild around James Harden.
If you're not starting all over to rebuild, you know what's gonna continue to happen with James Harden? You're gonna just keep trying pieces here, pieces.
They're putting this piece, putting this piece and you're gonna be mediocre.
That's what I think is gonna happen.
I just Yeah, I think it's the wrong way to go.
Man, I'm sorry is this is again I'm all for player, uh, flexibility and mobility.
But, you know, one of the greatest examples of when you follow the player, right? You know, sometimes I think it's sometimes better to follow the system that can essentially make a play better.
Perfect examples of patriots, you know.
I mean, like, as much as I hate the Patriots and Belichick, you know, they got what I'm fortunate that they pick Tom Brady over Bill Belichick because Bill Belichick wanted have Jimmy Garoppolo who fit that offense a lot better, like people killing him in San Fran.
But Jimmy Gravel with that Patriots offense he looked like This is Tom Brady on steroids, right? In the short games he played, uh, Craft was like Now Brady's my guy.
They pushed out.
Jimmy Garoppolo traded him to 40 Niners on body through the fine, and he's got a steal.
Brady was only there for, what, another year.
And he was gone.
I mean, look at the patrons, not They're trying.
They tried their best loose of the Jets just so they can now get a higher pick in the draft.
And this is the Patriots.
You've never heard the Patriots being with a three and six.
Now we have that.
You haven't seen it.
So when you pick again, some of these owners, they fall in love these players because it's because social Media, the superlative surface level aspects of the game.
Hey, he the sneakers, the fans and myself, James Harden and, literally, a guy like James Harden.
I'd say he's not a smart person or whatever, but Kobe was smart and Kobe had a period where he wanted to have Kobe ball, and it wasn't he realized that I'm wasting the best years of my life, playing with a bunch of not great players because I want to do it my way versus there's a coach.
Let me play in a system that accentuates my talents, but it makes everybody better and I win.
And I think that's the thing.
Will Harden, right.
I think it's, you know, Hardened is looking at like I'm making money, you know? I'm getting, you know, pictures with the Kardashians or stories about me being a Kardashian's here and there.
I got my car, I got the beer, I got everything.
And it's like a lot of guys don't care to win.
And it's not gonna register until, God forbid, maybe he gets injured.
And you know some of that, Our lord, right when he's in his thirties and somehow Law goes away now he's jumping from Team a team that won the championship.
That happens with all of these players, man.
They do this to me.
I just don't get it.
You're you're the physical problem.
You're gonna make millions of dollars regardless.
But if you win, your stature goes from here today.
Steph Curry, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Steph Curry does not have the notoriety has if he doesn't win a championship.
I'm sorry. He doesn't.
Because Steph Curry was put up numbers before anybody knew about the Splash Brothers.
Right? People people were saying there, Okay, basketball aficionados and people who know they were like, Yes, Steph Curry is a solid player.
He might be get up there.
But no one was looking at Steph Curry, like as one of the greatest point guards.
If he didn't win a championship, I'm sorry.
So, to me, hard into me, I have No, I agree with you.
When I remember, I saw no.
Okay, so that last year and they remember they were change them out of the lineup, making them out.
They will change between being a starter and a guy off the bench because he was saying basically pushing out there like I could run with these guys when he was starting.
He wasn't as effective coming off the bench, right? And it goes to show, like not okay, This might be hindsight, but he goes to the Rockets, and it started really ugly head where Maybe it's like he doesn't get the game on a high level.
Westbrook was the same way.
Uh, okay, See, he was creamy is fake triple doubles.
It's like those that's not winning basketball and what you say right now.
I believe what you're saying and that the fact that Russia questions like, Hey, guys, we all left up and we all messing up.
That's growth hard, and it's still very immature.
And if he goes to a team like what's gonna happen in Brooklyn? Three.
Prima donna immature on and Steve Nash, I'd be more surprised I would not be surprised.
Inmarsat Admire Knocks out Carrier e looked like he was like a cool dude, but he was like, Bro, you ain't talking about E was solid.
E Will hacksaw Jim Duggan slam you through a table.
Kyrie Irving You know what I'm saying? And Stephen, because Stephen, it's a happy go lucky D'Antoni's.
Add to that that I actually I hope heart and somehow finds his way on the Brooklyn Nets because that is gonna be one of the greatest and I can't wait.
Harden goes to E.
His entire game is predicated on him holding the ball for 10 15 seconds to make a move.
That is what he does.
There is not much I mean I know he gets some assist, but Harden's game is predicated on him having a ball in his hands and him holding the ball to make a move.
Carby Urban's game is predicated on the same exact thing, right? Katie's game really isn't predicated on that.
He will do that from time to time, but he's a quicker score, right? He's gonna take quicker, quicker hits to the basket.
I just don't see it happening and going well.
S k D's gonna play basketball.
Carrie and James Harden.
Really, I don't see it.
That is gonna be.
You talk about a Dumpster fire? That's gonna be I mean, they'll win basketball games because there's so much talent.
But I don't see the chemistry being strong enough for them to actually win something.
You know, there's just two too many cooks in the kitchen you need a lot more on and the Lakers winning.
You need a lot of things to go.
Your way to just stack your team with talent to win versus if chemistry was what that he did that he had a bunch of.
They literally brought him one player and I know how everyone says hi inside way.
Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! No one thought Jimmy Butler was gonna be this impactful with that team.
And Pat Riley has a beautiful system predicated on being in tip top shape, having guys who could run.
And now with this new generation guys who can shoot from the perimeter Tyler, Herro, Robinson, even Kendrick Nunn to play a little bit of that.
I mean, he's not.
He's more of, ah, guard.
Who's gonna be doing all guard? Facilitate, be able to back down guys and play, uh, in the post, Hit the mid range.
That's his game, but and you have them in a bio who can not say she that he's a mid range guy could get to the basket.
You could play small ball, all these tenets of basketball.
Not to say it's easy, but it's easier than trying to stack teams up and put these guys here.
I just love the fact that hopefully coaching sound basketball come back because the n b A lost a lot of money.
These players not run around the chicken, they running like chickens with their heads cut off.
And again, these players have no accountability because all the blame is gonna go to O D.
Antoni and, oh, they didn't bring the right players.
And oh, because I have.
I've seen on the ESPN when they blame Billy Donovan and said, Oh, Russell Westbrook never really had a coach.
Really? If I'm Billy Donovan, I won two championships.
I believe in 12 champions of Florida and you say, I'm saying I'm not a good coach is like I feel for these coaches because like, they still want the jobs right.
But they can't scream out and say, I was held back and and freaking handcuffed because I had Thio to basically count out to a guy like what? I couldn't coach that team the way I wanted to be.
Oh, right, And and exactly they can't come out and say anything like that because then it you know now then there's a reputation on them.
And, you know, people are like, Well, you know, this guy can't get along with players.
There's not any other thing, so they can't say anything like that.
Um, if James Harden, which I doubt I don't know what the Nets salary cap looks like and what kind of assets they have or how they would be able to make any moves to get James Harden.
But if somehow he ended up in Brooklyn and then Russell Westbrook ended up in with the Knicks, the N B A would love it because you talk about, you know, you talk about I mean, you talk about Russell Westbrook having a chip on the shoulder, you know, James Harden, n k d.
In in Brooklyn, And then he's with the Knicks by himself.
He'll have a super chip on his shoulder, and he probably loved that.
Like he would relish in that, Um And then, you know, of course, the MBA is gonna build that rivalry like crazy.
These times, with the way you know, no fans in salary and Kobe 19 and all of that.
They would love it.
They would love it, because now you've got a premier rivalry in New York City, right? That I mean, anything's again, Get the ratings.
I could definitely see them, uh, trying to do that, but wow, I just This whole Rockets thing is just making me laugh, man.
Where do you think I mean, obviously, we probably talked about this ad nauseum.
But where do you think Westbrook is actually gonna go? Because I think that they're trying to drum up rumors to say you're gonna go to New York.
I don't see it per se.
I said it before.
I think it was I think it was.
I don't know, but I really do think Yeah, I think the clippers Ah, swap with Paul. George.
If the if the rockets want to try to state relevant, I think a swap with the Clippers for Paul George could maybe benefit both teams Kawai in CO y and and Russell Westbrook, Paul George and James Harden, right? I mean, I think it could I think it would make sense.
You know, I think that, uh I think High and Russell Westbrook, you know, listen like they're they're young and yang as far as their character in their attitude, right? You got quiet, quiet person.
Who is he's Listen, he's gonna play hard, and he does all of that stuff.
But then you got Russell Westbrook, whose the fire starter and I think the Clippers needed some of that.
I would say if the Clippers side Russell Westbrook instead of Paul George in the playoffs, they would not have been eliminated where they were because they were down 31 and just this complacency seemed to set in, and there was no fire.
Right? That fire wasn't there to say, Yo, these guys, they're trying to play.
We need to step in and do something.
E think Russell Westbrook.
It would have been different and then, like like he kinda I don't know if they still have the same culture, what the coach is gonna be like now.
But the culture that they had built would have been Patrick Beverley mantra as Harold.
I think Russell Westbrook would have fit into that perfectly, you know, with with the type of fiery person that he is.
Um, now, Paul George.
And you know James Harden.
I mean, Paul George is a second fiddle guy, right? Yeah, he's second fiddle, guys.
So you know he's not going to say much.
He let James Harden do what he wants to do anything. He'll get his right.
I feel like that.
Would that would that could be a good swap that could work for both teams.
If the Rockets want to try to remain relevant and stay there, and I think it would boost, I think it would boost the Clippers, right? E think we told them we definitely talked about the last time with the Clippers.
Uh, yeah, but let's talk about your boy CP three Now, according to Brian Wimhurst of ESPN, he said that there are some teams in the East are interested in Paul.
I think New York has interest Philadelphia's interest.
I believe there's some cursory conversation between Philadelphia, Oklahoma City, but I don't get the impression that there is an attraction there.
Um, I mean, I don't see what Philadelphia obviously itself Ben Simmons on.
It goes on to say that there's not much of a clear answer who will be moved in exchange for Paul Services.
The easy answer Perplexed will be off going.
Ben Simmons, given the financial complications, along with both players sharing similar skill sets and other option will be Let it go.
Tobias Harris, who and Josh Richardson, which will leave the Sixers with some boys voice to fill along with wings ball itself to make 41 million this year, which pose a very difficult poses.
A difficulty for virtually any team trying to absorb him on their books while sending out reasonable enough talent that doesn't deplete their roster.
He's game most of his interest from the Phoenix Suns to appear fixated on grabbing awake for stand out early on.
Despite the financial complications, the sixties are able to pull the deal off of coal.
Uh, it will definitely sink in a new direction for the club after the hiring of doctors and Daryl Morey.
I think it could be fairly tough to get a guy like Chris Paul on the Sixers.
I definitely see the sun's.
We talked about, uh, sending off someplace in the sun's.
I forgot we mentioned with sons, but definitely Rubio they have about, I think about remember the sons.
I think we've broken down and said the sunset about like 93 million on the cap and I believe the captain came at 109 right, so that's what 16 million on, then poured.
You're Chris Paul.
Ricky Rubio makes 17, right? So it's another 17 that you slash off and I believe, Uh, sorry, trying e forgot what the contracts were, but I believe it is.
I think you should trade somebody else after that.
Other players after, but I think you could make it work.
Um, there's not just making sure you don't go over the luxury, even though I think was a 20 million before you had to be shot to paying taxes.
But I think they can make it work.
I do see that as a a big destination.
They do have a sons in some my grabs, a preparing hes so obviously point guard with some offensive prowess.
You know, at least that above Rubio is definitely something that they have in plan or in play.
Obviously, the Knicks would be perfect for him, But I think the sons have, you know, a high ceiling.
I just I just don't know, because remember the rumors first start that the Knicks one of him.
Then they changed it to the Nixon the Lakers.
And now there's rumors that now CP three came out or is saying that I don't want the Lakers, so it could have been that so much that the lake of, uh, the o K C Thunder trying to drum up interest by including these does random teams and mixed overbid.
But if you're talking about the sons, I mean they're still somewhere in the playoff hunt hosted player on the Knicks.
But that's still a team that you know, hasn't been winning.
And then the Knicks to.
So I don't see thes contents CP three.
So he might be a salary dump for a team like the Knicks.
I'm saying, Look, hey, and maybe these guys that just are playing you know, you know, playing back and forth, Okay.
See, in New York, maybe they're playing back and forth.
Maybe I'm not gonna say Phoenix doesn't have real interest, but they could be playing back and forth because he and Bagley's comes out.
He says something worth noting.
New York Knicks and Chris Paul.
Some MSG people have been wary of giving up too many assets in a Paul deal because they wanted to ensure this enough capital in place for future trades.
Right? And so the same is probably true for Russell Westbrook, you know, you know, and you know how these guys in the MBA work, right? You know, you got your reporters that you say, Hey, put this out for me.
I don't know if Ian Bagley is one of those guys or not, but I'm pretty sure every reporter does it right.
Put this out there for me.
So it gets out in the media so that, you know, put a little bit more pressure on.
Okay, see if they're having negotiations that way.
Because I think I've read in other places that O.
K. C. Is interested in Kevin Knox.
Plus, you know, some other young assets for Chris.
Paul and the Knicks are kind of like, Hey, you want to get rid of its salary, We got space.
Let's make it work that way without us having to give up assets.
And so, you know, maybe this is a way that did negotiating through the media, send the messages to one another, right, you know, and then o k.
C is like, Hey, well, this other competition Phoenix wants, um, let's get this out there that Phoenix is really interested and they'll go ahead and get Chris Paul and they'll give us what we want, right? You know what I'm saying? So who knows? And maybe it's maybe it's true.
Maybe the Nixon okay, c just aren't going to be able to come to anything.
And these other teams really have interest in are going to, you know, could could walk away with him now they I'm sorry.
I'm gonna see a lot of things move after this draft.
You see a lot of things, but I'm just a stupid rumors, everything, but But you know, the one thing that gets me with that my bad.
What Beckley said is that they don't want to give up too many assets for for for Paul because they want to ensure there's enough capital in place for future trades.
So that means don't say I e mean, does that mean this year, you know, like this all season or just future trades in general? You know, moving to whenever who knows? It just seems clear to me that these guys are not going to be standing still, though.
Yeah, just wear not becoming enamored with you because I do on CP three year.
But I'm not giving up those 2021 picks, man.
That's valuable, especially for a team that's not that good.
Because next year's draft is gonna be supposed to be loaded on.
I don't want to miss out on that because too many times in past you missed out on, you know, we missed on LaMarcus Aldridge.
I believe we missed out on Brandon Horror as well.
To think we could have got bringing more.
I think that was one of guys, right, Jamal Murray Way Need one of these guys, um, that we could build around.
Um, you know, So I'm definitely doing that.
Now let's go to your boy. Let's go.
Your boy all the deeper or Midwest is that Midwest? Yeah.
So your boy l a Depot has been fairly disrespectful on these air MBA streets Talking about I wanna play with Y'all gonna let me play with y'all? I'm down, Right? I read that.
This is a dude that you said he was singing all the time on NBA on the MBA show on TNT.
This guy, everyone thought it was like a humble dude.
And if this is true, this is extremely wild. Disrespectful.
Now, people might sit here and say, Well, the people's talented, whatever, right? But if you're playing on a team that.
I thought you guys were a playoff team, right? You, Sabonis, Brogden and, uh, Turner, Right? And you're doing that and you're you're doing this right in front of people.
That means that if this is true, that means that there's a disconnected you and the team to be that disrespectful, right? Me personally.
If this is true, outside of even the injury stuff, I don't want him on the Knicks because your intentions to play on this team may not be aligned with my intentions, which is I want this team, the win versus you coming over here and possibly thinking I don't got to share the ball with these other guys.
I could be a guy who's stats stuffs and who cares if I'm winning? I'm Old Depot, right? How do you feel? Because I don't like him doing that.
So someone asked amount of the great X What did he say? So basically, I guess at games, you know he would go upto opposing teams a few certain teams and say, Hey, can I play with y'all? Can I play with you? All kind of like if you at the court on the playground, and you don't like the team like, Yo, can I? Can I run with y'all? You know? So, like, I guess he was doing that and he did it to the Knicks.
I think that Z, that's childish, I think, immature.
And it speaks to his character as a person. I guess.
You know, I'm saying, you know, you know, what was the context, the context of it all? I don't know.
We just know what the reports are coming out.
You don't you don't do that.
If you don't like the team that you're playing with you just you know what you tryto handle.
Whatever you can handle internally.
And when it's your time to leave, you leave.
If that's you talking to your age and say, Hey, I don't like it here.
I want to get up out of here.
That's what you do, But you don't You don't go out and disrespect your teammates that way because that's not disrespecting the team that's disrespecting your teammates.
You know what I'm saying? And you know that, you know, you might have to play with these guys later on with another team or something like that.
like that's disrespecting your teammates, not the team, not the organization.
That's just foul.
And according to J.
Michael of Indianapolis Star, so allegedly or ****ogy.
But it said the leak did not sit well with o.
D persistent Victoria Victoria.
Quick, quick quote tweeted the report, asking what kind of teammates would sell her brother out in this manner.
One fan singled out Evan Turner, not even turn a monster, prompting Victoria to respond with a pair of emojis.
This led to turn himself, entered the conversation and saying, **** is like that.
So there might be something going on with the Depo.
And they're saying that, uh, that Pacers President President President Kevin Pritchard has explored three team deals involving both on the depo in Turner.
Right? And I didn't I think we saw somewhere, uh, someone putting out a rumor that that Turner is definitely on the block.
Um, so I don't know what's happening with that team, but for a team like that, I mean, for this to be happening, for this to come out, it may be coming out from tentative.
Turner's being possibly pushed out now.
I mean, you know, I mean Oladipo has been injured and you have to trade for him.
But because you have to trade him, I think I don't even know what how many ever turn it has on this contract.
But there's definitely a war between.
It seems like there's a war between those two because Evan turned mouse turning what he just said, No, that's not me.
So they there are reports about Evan Turner being linked to the Celtics, who I think he fit well with.
We talked about the Celtics.
Uh, e um, So Miles started being on the Celtics, I think would be huge.
And it could work where miles turn.
Let me just see, almost because they have a bunch of picks they doing a one Myles Turner is.
I mean, he makes a straight $18 million like really 18 million for this year.
Next year, in 2022 to 2023 bro, I would if the Pacers air really trying to move Myles Turner.
I like miles turning.
I like miles turn into man.
I like Myles Turner, the Nixon trying.
They're trying to move next, tried to get in on some conversations pick because we could just throw your boy Randall in there that make everybody's day except for you.
But you know what I'm saying? But, hey, I trade Randall for Myles Turner and every day all day would you trade Mitch for Mouse Turtle? And yes, yes, I'll trade Mitch symbols like Mitch, Would you trade Myles Turner? And it includes knocks if it's just knocks for Myles Turner.
Yeah, I think, like knocks in like, uh, it was not making eight or no, he's making four.
Right? Knox makes like $4 million.
So if you're doing, if you're doing like Kevin knocks three guy, that I really cringing.
Trading is is, frankly, Latina.
Obviously, I don't want to trade knocks, either, right? I really cringed.
I really cringing, trading, frankly, Latino.
That's the guy that I really cringed when people mention his name.
I hate to mention Frank's name and trades, and I know people are like, Hey, don't do nothing.
This and that, Um, I just feel like he's a guy that that he's the he's someone that you need on the winning team.
That's what I feel about what frankly, Latina, Um, but I'm telling you I would trade.
I would trade Julius Randle for Myles Turner.
I would trade Mitchell Robinson for Myles Turner.
I would trade Kevin Knoxville.
Myles Turner, D S.
Obviously anybody else except for R. J.
Yeah, but you you have to You have to touch E.
I think people will deep you all the depo might be easier, but again, if this is the truth that he was doing this, it might be toxic.
So I think next, you got to stay away from every toxic type of player.
You know, if he's the one leaking it, you know, it is messed up, but from all other, like all the space, I haven't heard anything bad about him.
So, uh, I'm definitely for that if you get a mouse turning.
But if you really on the block, I mean, I would think that they would move on from Oladipo before Myles Turner.
Myles Turner is their guy.
Someone said miles overrated.
I don't know about that.
I don't know, man.
I like Myles Turner.
I think that he's, you know, he may not end up, you know, being 20 and 10 for his career.
But what he brings defensively, you know, he could shoot the ball a little bit from the outside.
He could post up.
He could do a lot of stuff and a lot of weight.
Yeah, otherwise, we were just saying who we try, Not necessarily the match of the contract.
Obviously, we have to find ways to match.
But we're just saying because we joke around with Sim as to some of the prospects, not prospect place that he likes.
And, you know, we just eyes that seem like so.
But we're not saying obviously way to match it.
I think I think Sim knows about matching contracts, but we're just saying s someone said cement feet.
I mean, what does Jewish Randall have? Uh, my son has so many, uh e.
I could see Myles Turner and Julius Randle playing next to each other.
I mean, Myles Turner is a center.
He can block shots.
He's not a crazy rebounder and said he could shoot the ball from the outside.
His last shot, 34% from three the best he's ever shot from three is 38% for his first career is 35 30 35.
Right, The mouse Turner his Let's look at this shot chart I wish I could give, so I could probably put in it this government 70,018.
I was not updated, but child trying to put up the shot chart from I'm pretty sure shot chart would overlap.
A lot of, uh, your boy shot chart random, And Randall just doesn't space the floor nearly as well as's he does.
Yeah, this boy, but he can space the floor out.
I mean, I think that I mean, like, if you go and you look at a lot of players even though Randall didn't hit the three from a high clip, they still use them in the corner a lot.
E mean, but But what I'm saying is, what I'm saying is, it's not always about Can you make the shot sometimes Because you could put Frank in the corner.
They put Frank in the corner a lot Are Jay in the corner.
It's not always about Can you make the shot? Is how you space from that from that corner.
And then, you know, other players could go on, like if you're in the corner on one side of the floor, you have a shooter on the ball side, the strong side of the floor.
And then your action is on the strong side of the floor, the ball side of the floor.
But you still got like like let's say, for example, of Julius Randle, Myles Turner.
We're on the same team and the ball is on the left side of the floor.
You had Julius Randle in the corner, the deep corner on the right side of the floor.
But then you had, you know, Myles Turner posted up on the left side of the floor and you had someone in the corner on the left side of the floor who was the shooter, right? So now your actions are on the left side of the floor.
Julius Randle is on the total opposite side of the floor.
You know what I'm saying? So now his space really doesn't you know his inability to knock down that corner? Three really doesn't come into play as much his guy could come off of him, but if he comes off too much and and they penetrate to the lane, Julius Randle is gonna cut to the basket, maybe baseline or whichever.
Whichever, you know, whichever way.
And then he's open, right? I mean, I find that they bootlegged from the NBA because all I gotta do is just shift my guys over to creep more.
If I can slag off just Randall just a little bit where I can help overload to where if a guy like mouse turning whoever is driving on that other the opposite Randall side.
And then if you make that pastor, I'll make sure he's not gonna come behind me.
I gotta always gotta make sure, because obviously I don't think I mean I mean, that's the thing.
I think the players think they think that, but always in his own, there are gaps.
Even if you guys, even if you have guys that can't shoot, there are gaps in the zone so that you could get in the paint.
And how many times have you seen Julius Randle effectively cut into the zone and play like what you're saying? Right? But what I'm saying is not, but it's not just it's not just Julius Randle, right, because he can hit that corner three at a high enough clip where they have to at least respected because it's not like he's a player that's just gonna throw it up, and there's no chance that he's gonna make it.
You know, I'm saying as long as you have a player who defense has to at least respected, they are going to close out on that player if they get the ball right.
E mean, you could say you could take Rondo and put him in the corner and he could make it at a high enough.
Quit what they're gonna say, At least got to close out.
I'm not gonna let him shoot it by himself.
Now, when you take a player that can't shoot it all, you know Chris Dudley back in the day, right? Chris Dudley? They're like, I'm not even going out there because I know he can't make it.
But, you know, as long as someone can, you know, Kristen, I think I couldn't think somebody who e shack embarrassing for us because I don't like that e I couldn't think of anybody quick enough today, So I just used Chris Dudley because you know, you couldn't sleep e nose and everything.
E would like Myles Turner, though, and he's out to me.
I mean, the average is 12 points a game.
You know, it's cool, I think.
But I think he's a He's a strong, a good, strong center, 23 years old.
I agree with you.
I like my like, whole cement feet thing.
I think he probably him And some bonus. Probably.
It wasn't the greatest of spacing.
E think that if you have him as one of your main cause on a team like the Knicks, I think that he's humble enough that he's not gonna try to be try to hog the ball.
Uh, you know, I like monsters game.
I like him a lot.
Just some other random MBA tidbits.
You got Lemelle a ball.
You know, Let me just ask you one thing.
Would you trade Mitch for Myles Turner? Because G.
Andreozzi said Sim lost me, man, he would trade Mitch for Myles Turner.
Let me tell you why I would because Mitch, he's gonna average 12 points, 10 rebounds in the MBA.
But I still feel like Mitch is 12 points are all gonna come because somebody else created the shot for him.
And I think with Myles Turner is different because he can post.
He could shoot the three.
You know he's not.
He's not shoot exactly.
He's not gonna always need.
He's always gonna need someone to get him the ball right, which so is Mitch, but you'll be able to throw the ball in the post every once in a while.
You could get a bucket and you're about passing.
But again, if you have a guy like Mouse Turner, you have extra attention on him, right? You open up the game for whichever shooters the Knicks bring on E.
I mean, Mr Robinson, you can slide off of Mr Robinson because, you know, once he has the ball, he's only gonna do one thing.
If he's not right at the basket.
If he's a 10 ft away from Basque, you know he's just waiting for the ball.
Hand will come around, so you just hand it all to them.
Right? And Mr Robinson may have a ceiling.
He may have a really high ceiling, but again, three summers in a row, we've seen him do the whole Instagram.
You know, I'm God Shammgod all that crap on.
As I said, he's never gonna get potential.
But you're talking about a bona fide center who could space out the floor.
And I don't even think he's really reached a ceiling.
I trade trade Mitch Robson for him to we think about next fans, man, Look, if the Knicks were good or if we're if we're the Knicks were the sons right? We're just like, ****, man, I don't know about trade, Kelly uber a man he's gonna come up that were right there at the cusp of the playoffs is one thing.
But you told about a guy Mitch Robinson, who I like but again take out the splash plays in the blocks that he had his his rookie season.
Right? Take out that from your mentality from your your mental right and also include the fact that he's still ah, foul prone guy.
He's only averaged 22 minutes of 27 minutes playing, you know? I mean, there's a lot of what ifs, and also he was a second round pick.
Mm, second place.
So it's not as if, you know, Frank was like at the number eight or number 10, 2nd round pick, and we've gotten a lot.
We've gotten that much room for a second round pick.
If I could use him to trade for a guy like Myles Turner who I think that again, I think my son is still has a pretty good ceiling.
I'm taking out certain I'm taking about certain.
Yeah, because my Turner can Still he still has enough time where he can, you know, he could turn that 12 and and seven and Thio 18 and 10.
Easy, I think, easy.
And it's not that I hate Mitch is just I'm just being real about who I think Mitch is.
I just think that he is going to, you know, maybe later in his career he develops a fume or, um, you know, a few more moves.
But not once have I seen Mitchell Robinson get the ball thrown to him and him executed.
Not once have I seen that happen.
Not even in his workout tapes.
It workout tape.
He's on the perimeter dribbling, Not on the perimeter. Dribbling.
Not once have I seen him execute a post move and my might kill me again.
A larger one is out there.
Ah, la John made LeBron James into a post up nightmare for the OKC thunder on that heat team where they won.
And this is LeBron James, who all he could do was front face, dropped the basket, was in a good shooter at the time.
Wasn't a guy who could really pick a spots on the floor.
And he became an assassin from the post.
These guys have all this time, and you tell me you're not working, working with guys who could help you in your post game, even if you wanna be a shooter from the poach.
Robinson, you're not working out.
You're working on this God Shammgod stuff that we know you're not going to do what I'm saying so to me.
And my son is 24 by the way, which is still relatively young, right? Yeah.
Options 22 I believe 2020 or 21 21.
So again, the sky's the limit for Myles Turner.
I'm training for God, and you could build around a guy like miles turn a lot more easier than you can with Mitch.
I mean, you know, someone says so you would trade the camp for Costa holster tag? What? You know.
What do you like, bro? What are you talking about? I mean, the Kimber he wasn't a crazy story, but he could explicates.
He could execute some post moves.
Oh, you get a Oh, great.
Yeah, Yeah, I over exaggerated man.
First football, the Kemi Matombo.
You're comparing the Kemi Matombo, Mitch, The Kerry would tumble was and I won't.
But I think you averaged, like, 18 points or something like that.
Yeah, it was actually like double digit points.
So I said he had great moves, but again, the Kevin Tillman was a defensive star.
But Robson has flash plays of really good defense.
But when you're filing out almost by the third quarter, right, Like, that's an issue that can be Matombo.
That's not the Kenema tomorrow's game, man.
So that's what Greg tag, man, that that stupid man But no mouse Turner is not No **** Greg holds attack.
Yeah, I do just like Thio way fall in love with we become we treat our players like lovable losers.
Man, if you want, I'm not saying create the farm for them, but again.
There's a reason why I like R.
Because he's a breath of fresh air as much as you like.
Not as much as you like Frank.
They have not produced as much as as as R.
I know people will say, Oh, RJ ranked at the bottom stop R. J.
Barrett showed us civility that ****, if I could go toe RJ and he's like I can pull back, I could rein them in.
I'd rather have that versus trying to build you up.
I could teach R.
When you drive on your left, the guys over playing you starting, stopping shoot, start, stop and shoot the shot.
You don't have to keep trying driving your left and forced forced into the, uh to the cup and you missed the shot.
Or you don't throw the file.
I can rein in RJ bad because I see the ability.
I see that assertiveness.
Guys like Frank and not you're still tryingto put the pieces together.
You're hoping that would have been developed when they were in college or in Strasbourg friends.
So we fall in love with our players way too much.
We have to be a little bit more objective on them.
And Mitchell Robinson? As much as I like him, you know, we How does the rest of NBA feel about Mr Robinson? Do they feel would have other friends? They'll be like, Yeah, cool.
But, you know, he's a typical Rim running on, and that's exactly what we would get.
No, Mitchell Robinson's cool.
Yeah, he's good.
You come up Branch, that's you know, that's that's what we would get about Mitchell Robinson.
And I'm not trying to hate on me.
She's the youngest, got a ways to go.
It's just I'm not sure that I see some of the things, you know, like when you're talking about him being able to score on his own.
I just don't know if I see that in him.
Maybe I'll see something different later on, you know? And maybe that happened later on.
But I don't see it in right now and again.
A lot of us are hoping we're hoping that he does that.
Now, A few more tidbits for you out of here.
Now you're the Lakers.
The so called interesting DEMAR DeRozan.
Yeah, that could be a good move for the Martha Rosie.
No, Break that down.
Like DEMAR, DeRozan is not built to be the guy.
You know, He's built to be a role player that on certain nights could be the guy, I think.
And so, you know, you go to L. A.
You know, you got LeBron there.
You got Anthony Davis.
He doesn't have to worry about he can go ahead and B J R Smith not not not have the same, you know, not be not the character of J. R.
Smith, but he could be That guy that, you know, is maybe your X factor on some nights.
You know, a guy that O'Kane, you know, you go ahead and averages 15 16 and then for, you know, 33 games, he averages 30 you know, saying then he goes back and averages his things.
And then, you know, on the night when LeBron is hurt, he comes in, he gives you 35 or something like that, you know, But the pressure is not on him to be the guy because I don't think he can handle it.
The only thing with him is that he would have to strictly become up because that team has eyes, right? LeBron James likes to drive from the top of the Kyoto wing.
Either run the pick and roll with a B or hit it out to the guys on the perimeter and the fact that you've not, you know, he's just not a play.
And I say you can't shoot from mid range.
But, you know, they like their guys.
David hit the corner.
Three. Hit the three from the wing.
They like gunners, right? I mean, KCP, Danny Green, Kuzma.
Even Caruso can hit those threes off from time to time.
I just don't know how the Rosen fits.
I could see the roads and becoming a bench guy because they got Dion Ways and J.
Smith, who were basically kind of like their reserve shooters.
But, you know, DEMAR DeRozan.
You know, I think a guy who needs the ball in his hands again, he's not elite guy, like What does he do? I just don't see the fit per se.
I know what you're saying, right? He could be the type of guy on dead nights are not dead nights, you know, like the off nights ago.
You know, I just unless he wants to take a bench right where he's getting 28 25 minutes a night, Um, or even 30 Playing like that.
Don't say energy guy, but kind of like the slash role.
Um, but I was thinking of him being a bench role.
I wasn't thinking about him being a starter.
I was thinking about him being on a, you know, a bench guy that someone said, Well, still noses at him in New York, bro.
We get enamored with names, man.
DEMAR DeRozan ain't that, bro.
He's not that he's still talking about the glory days with the Toronto Raptors.
And mentally, again, you talk about a guy who's had again.
I'm not making fun.
Anybody who has mental issues or anything but a guy who has anxiety issues legit had to stop playing during a playoff game.
Him and calorie.
And not only the same time, but he had to go in the back and basically couldn't play.
I believe, like some like that, whatever was just have anxiety issues, right? So he comes to New York and he'll be looked at Oh, the martyr Rosen and you know how New York is? They will mark.
They will murder him if you don't think that would be bad because they'll hype them up.
New York media like because they build you up.
They don't matter.
DEMAR DeRozan is, I think, in the stories, whatever.
He's not the type of play and everyone knows that they're not going to come in and just be one of the guys and say, Oh, the market.
Rosen, blah, blah And the media.
They will kill him.
Parole, be speaking.
And then the Marta Rose.
I don't need a guy for New York is gonna have anxiety issues.
Barrett type of mentality, guys, where they like that challenge they liked, you know? I mean, they like they have that dog in him and as much like the martyr Rosen.
He doesn't have that dog now to go to another contender.
I think might suit him.
Um, you know, I'm thinking of teams.
Maybe, but this team needs shooters to They need wings to shoot.
Because I was thinking the Blazers, but they need wings.
Who could shoot? Um, I'm not sure how he fits them.
There's no way he goes back.
Toronto? Yeah, it's tough.
I don't know where you go. You have to try to take a bench role and fish.
And we're But is he Is he a free agent this year? I believe this season Police.
So e believe so, Uh, he has a player option 24,021 which was given 27.
So you probably leaving? Um, no, he's probably taking that option.
Be taking that all day.
Uh, but yeah, if something was a trade from I mean, that's that's up to them.
But I don't see it happening Lakers with I don't know, maybe they trade That was it the 20 whichever 28 are whatever last pick they have or coastal a****, um, versus tryingto be stuck with Wicomico Manion type of these low types of draft.
Maybe they do that because that is more value.
Tomorrow's is probably more value than anybody that, uh, their draft pick.
So Right, Right.
Uh, you still gotta You still got to make the salaries coming least somewhat close.
Right? So when do players have to opt in? You know, given, given the way the schedule is now when the players have to say, Yeah, I'm opting in.
I think so, if they haven't already, they said it's a free agent.
Starts on the 20th, but then you could sign plays on the 22nd.
When do they opt in? Uh, it's a good question for you.
Oh, November 18.
So creating would be on the 20th, two days after the NBA draft.
Hold on. Let me look at the key dates.
Uh, come on, opt in.
Okay, So looking at key dates right now just says November 18th and be a draft.
We know that November 20th negotiations begin at 6 p.m.
The 22nd players consigned contracts.
December 22nd is the opening night of the MBA season, right? So really not much behind all those little details.
And when players gotta opt in or something like that, I'm figuring, you know, players that have, uh, you know, this team options on, you know, non guaranteed deals.
They probably have to decide whether or not they're gonna wait.
Those players by Thursday, November 19th.
I'm thinking something like that because I think you've got to make that decision before they enter free agency.
So we're probably probably really have an impact.
That's a, uh, next travel to Atlanta church.
I'm just reading around next.
Travel to Atlanta church for a different ******* workout so deftly that so one Mawr trade idea that's come up for the Knicks on this is an interesting one.
Your boy Dennis Schroder coming to next, I say the Knicks and the thunder of a report from Region Hoops, Ross said the Knicks and Thunder have reportedly have preliminary trade talks on a deal that will send Dennis Schroder to New York.
Um, how do you think that would work? I actually not minded in a e.
I wouldn't mind on me.
I'm thinking he'd be a stopgap, right? But I wouldn't mind having dinner shoulder.
What's he make? $15 million a year makes 15 million and he'll be a free agent next year.
So that's one year, Um, what would you trade for him? Bobby Portis, $50 million.
I'll take the evening swell.
I'll give him another second round draft pick or something did you get in the 27th? Yeah, I'll give him the 27th.
I'll give you 27th pick for dinner.
I get Bob reporters in the 27th pick.
Dennis isn't much better than the issue of Frank.
What do you What? Yeah, Z, He's been the starting point guard in the N B A.
Ah, good Hawks Teams Z o z.
Dennis Schroder is miles ahead from D. J. Frank.
What? What What are these people? What basketball e.
Really? Are you serious? What do yo yo yo, Dennis Schroder Throat is miles ahead of D. S J.
And and, frankly, Latina.
As much as we like these guys, if you ask people about Dennis Schroder, you could shoot you beast.
You if you ask people.
How did J Frank? Like when his stroller average 19 points a game on a playoff team in the Western Conference last season? On the team that was had a 4% chance to go to the playoffs, bro.
And he's 26 doing that Age 26 d s. J Yo.
You see Mark? I get it sometimes.
Mark, you've got chaos.
Only your brain sometimes both.

You got moved to shooting guard because he isn't great at playing point guard, and and he's not good at shooting either.
