Oakland Trail Grazer.
Uh, well, exercise cases, Almost two million.
So what up? Get all? Yeah, whatever.
Whatever. Shut up.
The best off the, you know, after the same Probably the best podcast religion of No, no, I'm not taking that title.
I'm used followers like crazy, bro e on you guys, man.
I'm come from humble beginnings like everybody.
Man, I'm just here talk basketball.
But sim is the the quote unquote goat of this, uh, s e I was gonna ask you go if you have the You know, the minute in this show.
How long are you doing the diehard next podcast? I think you were you, like, early, right? A couple of years now.
Well, I've been doing audio, probably like I want to save since the being maybe like, the beginning of last season.
Maybe I can't remember.
I've been doing this.
Now I'm at, like, 120 something episodes so that that's how long I've been doing it.
So, more than ever, take, You know, your rings e a you know? Well, audio.
You know, audio is way different than than visual man cause audio You know, guys tend Thio fall in love with your voice.
You know what I'm saying? So people like what? Kind of, like, weird messages and stuff.
So it's kind of it's a whole different thing.
You could get away with playing music and all that stuff.
But when you're doing visual stuff, you kind of gotta got to chill out a little bit because YouTube has so many rules and saying the same with SportsCastr.
You know, SportsCastr will send you a text like, Hey, buddy, could you, uh, you know, turn it down a little bit? You know, I'm saying, but no, it zits cool, man.
I haven't having a good time with this stuff.
You could see I got merchant all this sort of stuff.
I'm just having a good time.
Definitely different. Well, that's cool.
SportsCastr didn't send me nothing yet, but I know I'm waiting for that first message.
I'm guessing, you know, they're not going to send it off, you know, different, you know, times over or, you know, brought from the United States.
I'm waiting for an email, at least.
So when you guys talk about Evan 40 as, ah, possible pick up for the next.
Um, he he accepted his contract.
Oh, yeah. With the magic.
You sign with the magic? Yeah, his last year, right? Yeah.
I always liked him as a decent point guard.
Remember, He was on the pelicans, too, right for me.
And I think he's been with Orlando the whole time. I think.
He was in the land of basic.
I think he might be.
No, I think he would have been a different team.
Yeah, he's He's with Denver.
He's with Denver first and then Orlando E for one season two, But yeah, he's a decent point guard, man.
Um, yes, the support.
I mean, really touching you for the Knicks, man, because so I'm all 12.
Westbrook's gonna come, and I haven't seen anything yet.
You know, I swear you can't. You can't.
For these, they feed off of Knicks fans.
Man, the fact that we're desperate for something they feed off that, let me tell you like everybody is, is becoming millionaires off the backs off the stress off every Knicks fan man, it's like it's like, drives me crazy.
I'm glad I'm glad that Simmons here, you know, you got other guys.
Next fan TV, Of course.
You know, grill Mou started to come up a swell.
So I mean, I'm glad that everybody started to come up because, I mean, we need some people.
You know, Thio tell our side of the story and not just make money off of our stress.
You know, it just drives me crazy. That's why I started.
That's why I started doing all this stuff because the same people ever that they'll get on ESPN two.
If Spike Lee or Charles Open wants to cry about absolutely nothing, uh, they'll get there and they'll validated or they'll tweet out all the blah, blah, But they'll be the first people toe Come on and say, Oh, this guy's going to You know how many rumors I read? Literally.
Within the span of two days, you saw the rumors of Chris Paul.
In the span of a week, you sort of the rooms of crystal.
Want to go to New York? Chris Paul, New York and the Lakers are in for Chris Paul.
There's a deal that taking for the Knicks to tape to the GM liking that could.
And then Chris Paul was Goto, Knicks and Lakers.
Literally a few days later, Chris Paul doesn't wanna goto Lakers.
I'm just like, Do you guys have any integrity? I just said You want click Celesta? And there's a lot of stuff you can do for Nick fins, uh, to get clicks like, if you give us good ****ytical articles that we could debate on, talk about, you get a lot of clicks you I've seen in the Twitter thread people.
Oh, mixed fan, uh, mixed teams.
Who said this blah, blah like there.
There's no need for you to create these artificial fake rumors just to get clicks.
It's like because it makes you look bad.
Mannix and you lose your credibility and you know about it.
Uh, Andy soccer, you know, like the tears of reporting and soccer.
Soccer's big, I think.
Yeah, I think Knicks Knicks rumors myself when their transfer rumors from Manchester United I'm you think that mix that the height, take that height and multiplied by 100 literally they put you in tears regards to reliability, for for like a reporter like, you know, like Fabrizio Romano, he's like the big guy, right? But he had a few misses of summer.
And so people are like, Oh, he's, you know it is, you know? So guys I saw no.
And with with soccer, it's It's a little bit different because they don't have those caps and they can trade players like between leads.
Right? So you get you get a certain amount of cash, just like to sell a player, right? So these these guys are like making hundreds of millions of season and like the feet to sign a guy from your club is again like I know 70 €90 million like 100 120 right? No, those are, you know, crazy amounts.
That's like the whole salary cap.
No. Four year for an enemy teen.
And there's just no getting that for just one player, right? And that's on like a coffee.
And it's not like, you know, a signing bonus.
Designing one is something different.
The salary of the player is something different that they're just defeated.
Other club, right? So these these kind of things.
So much money in the world, man.
Neymar went for 300 million.
Oh, no, no, sorry.
Neymar had What do you mean, a $300 million? Yeah, exactly.
If they were, they would want something would want to buy from from Barcelona.
I think they would have toe payoff.
That kind of money.
Those appears you now, but with Messi has $700 million release cause that's supposed to billion for one guy.
So So thank God gonna have it.
But these these people out there not mixed, um, concentrators or people on Twitter.
Just people from es piano.
Alright, for this guy, like I saw one literally just said, um um you guys may have just been talking about it.
It's called one who writes for the next for you know, this is, uh they said all the tables on that, and I'm not Look, West Birthday man is tough.
I don't want to give a major assets for him, and they're gonna use him as a salary dump and we haven't for his contract.
Runs out 2023 e believe Yeah, I mean, two years. Whatever.
Have him here, he can be a productive player.
I don't like this efficiency of the decision making.
Even though last year, he didn't shoot 47% from the field, but he had that weird skirt of, like 23 weeks.
So he played like a superstar with Harden, where you're seeing like 40% from three made toe high forties from the field like he was playing.
It was like it was like, What the hell? Like, what is this Westbrook? But you know, he's not gonna be playing with another guy like hard in in New York.
He's been playing with, you know, a team that's trying to come up.
Is he gonna dip his stats to make guys better? Thio.
But this pick, Mitchell Robinson, the freaking freaking bosoms.
I family Robson abusive IQ.
Yeah, why would Why would? Why would the Magic do that when they have a uber productive guy? Who I mean when you talk about how systems and stuff are getting outdated, but he fits that magic system great.
Um, do you take him out? I don't I'm not sure if Jonathan Isaacs, who is another budding, played it for that played for that team.
If you put Mr Robson who can't really create shots vs Mustafic who can create down low I'm not sure.
I think John the ice is gonna struggle.
Lot more like what? And who they draft that.
Who would replace Route Civics? Uh, Chris Madness zero.
This This is the guy Scott Sandwell from? Yeah, because I read. Okay.
I thought it was I think he's the one that set the West Brook thing.
That's what happened at 12.
Um, same guy, same guy, same guy.
He's just writing crap.
Um, he's just he's just throwing darts at everywhere.
Um, how do you guys cool about that? Uh, why would the Knicks do that way? But, you know, general for me, the Onley way out off explaining this this this thing because I wouldn't get it right.
But only thing is, that fits.
Told them you go.
Okay, listen, when I signed the deal, I told you guys, I'm not gonna be a rebuilding coach.
I wanna have pieces that I want to get to the playoffs now.
So they're gonna trade most off the young guys just to get guys for tips to make the playoffs.
And it doesn't matter if you get the A C seven.
Maybe if we get west one Mawr like mediocre.
Even the also right, like a mediocre player that that, you know, scratch those things like a top No.
40 player or something.
Maybe they could get like the 16, right? But, you know, I think that's taught us like the rest of the teams are, like built well with chemistry.
And I don't think you could, you know, like just get five new players and just make him go to the top five or top four of the Eastern Conference.
Even the Eastern Conference.
Let's say that way.
So, yeah, especially in the short season to these guys are not playing 82 games.
You know, you kind of got to get the ball rolling right away.
And the only thing about that, it's like they also have so many guys there, Um, regards to coaches like I don't think that this is like a Tom Thibodeau front office like lead from the are like like he has their 100% support.
I think it's gonna be a concerted effort by everybody, right? You have.
I mean, just coaches Mike Woodson, you got you guys got like guys who came up from Utah was a man in a parent.
Always forget that.
Or mix up into When I came from the 70 Sixers, you got Kenny. Brian, you've got coaches.
You got front office guys there who aren't necessarily Tom Thibodeau guys.
Not to say that he can't trust this guy, whatever.
But there's, like, a miss mosh of talent, right? I find it hard that, you know, you hire all these guys, um, under Leon Rose and then then Tom Taylor has a set off like the, you know, the was it say all or whatever final say Excuse me? Regards to I need ready made players are like, Why would you get all these developmental guys on your coaching staff in your front office? And they say I'm gonna win now.
Like it just doesn't It doesn't make, especially with draft.
I would think that they want to go into this first draft.
Andi kind of pick somebody is going to kind of help to set the tone, right.
Honestly, this draft is not really start having relatively weak.
But if you get ah, high level role player who fixed Tom Thibodeau's vision, right? I mean, you had seen Snow who basically so as a career because Tom Thibodeau So you could see him, you know, vouching for a guy like a hotel who fits that three d mobile fit of Tom Thibodeau system to a t.
What I'm saying So I think I think a Westbrook thing because I do think that Tom Thibodeau likes aggressive guards who could penetrate defense is kick out the perimeter so I could see the Westbrook.
Things still happen.
I just don't see them making a trade.
Like like for group.
Who so they Yeah, this doesn't make any sense.
Really? Oh, my God.
Let it doesn't really make sense for a bit.
Let's go around Thio Guillermo spot.
You know, no more closer to the Barclay Center into the next.
We probably saw the hardened right that the heart and rumors, you know, just not even talking that that would that would be fun to watch.
Like a, you know, fun to watch as it gonna is gonna blow up.
E would love that to see that, because that's gonna be a copy show.
But, you know, just going What are the chances that they're going to trade Kyrie for Harlem in that deal.
First of all, I killed Hardened last night on my show, Man, I was just e can't spend Harding.
Um, I really can't stand on me.
I think he's I'm sorry.
Let me digress. I just screw him.
Okay, Go ahead. My bed.
No, I agree with you.
Would you Would you take a long hard man? It's just like it's just the anti Brooklyn type of thing.
So it's a total Genscher gentrified trade thio happen, man.
Yeah, Yeah, that's that's actually because I mean, I can't see you guys going down Flatbush Avenue with fake beards and stuff like that.
That that would be insane.
Anybody who thinks that we're lying, please go visit.
Okay, I wish I don't have many pictures from the area.
I was like a kid who took a lot of pictures, right, But I wish I could show you pictures of me growing up, and obviously you want things to get better, right? But there's a point when things were a lot better when the mall came and things were nice and you still I mean parts of obviously a lot of white people, whatever.
And then there's Still, there's still a good amount of black Hispanics that lived around the area.
But if you go to that area now and even that area for the most, When I moved to that area, it wasn't that like people, it was bad back in the early nineties.
I live someplace else in the eighties, and so when I moved in, it was nice.
So it wasn't like we have to say this neighborhood Baba I was like, No, it's nice neighborhood.
It's cool Like street.
A lot of Hispanics, of the street myself.
If you go there now when I heard K d say, What do you say? Yeah, because I wanna feel the black culture that my dogs my mom still is there, Um, I visit that area and I use the most iconic thing.
Are the actual apartments, which are these Mammoth? Um, Blade Runner is like a blade runner looking Bigelow apartment complex.
Were just like what? How big does this thing go? And then you have the apple store where you see a line a line that is nothing.
Brooklyn, get to get to your point about the harder thing.
I find it hard they trade for a guy like Kyrie because trade Kyrie because Kyrie is hardens his Katie Svengali, right? He is Katie's whisper.
Um, you basic showers together and all that.
Of course they take showers, manicures, Pettis.
Because I did say TKT do an interview with his bare feet as a man you never do interview with.
Come on! Um, even even in your own house.
Come on, let's get together.
But, uh, this is no way trade guy like hardened because that means, like, I feel like they're gonna They're more likely to trade a guy like, didn't really has been in some, uh, rumors lately, uh, with your heart and just don't work well together.
Hardness still as much just he's annoying.
I'm not hard. Excuse me, Kyrie.
As much as Kyrie is a annoying guy, he's still a high level.
He's a highly productive guard, one of the right.
I don't see them getting rid of now.
The hardest thing I heard that they were, you know, the route that essentially this is from a clutch points article that the next don't You aren't universally in this whole hearted thing.
And I think the next front office might be a little strange right now, because think about this, right? They bring these two knuckleheads they dismantle assistant that was working out.
If you like Kenny Atkinson, Whatever. That's what.
You don't like him, but you can't.
You can't see him deny that he had something working for those guys, right? It could have been the infancy of it.
It could have been that could have been a sealing off.
That's how the highest gonna go, we don't know.
But something was working, and he took a lot of re treasure guys that we didn't think were How we tout it may become productive enough against players where they ran into a really good success team.
Right? You just mentioned just the front office, By the way.
I think they've got a new owner during that time, right? I believe they got new owners.
So you bring this new owner on, then you have a GM.
I think they brought new auto GM. I can't Whatever.
Andy, He's an Asian.
Got any? I can't pronounce the guy's name, but the thing is, the Asian Asian owner on then they have that I don't know.
The GM is bringing the GM.
Yeah, Yeah, they bring him in.
And so they basically ripped that whole system to bring into superstars.
Right? So called superstar superstar global players. Right.
These guys come in, then Now it's okay.
Lets the pieces guys, they don't like Atkinson.
Right? So you have guys like Joe Harris getting Woody Jared out.
All succeeded on the Atkinson.
Now they're in limbo is going to.
So you have a gym who? You have a bunch of really good players, these superstars.
And now they want to bring in a guy like Steve Nash has had no coaching experience, has done really nothing.
Outside of his playing is obviously is the Hall of Fame player, but with nothing coaching wise to validate that, right? And then now you have Katie and Kyrie fighting over Who wouldn't? Steve Nash? Because the whole league is gonna like Steve Nash.
Are you seriously not to say that a racial thing is just like this guy has no experience.
He's coming into coach.
What again? Like, are you seriously so that now you have this with the hard thing? And it's like, All right, guys, guys guys, we do a little bit too much.
This is not NBA two k.
You want me to bring Harden? I brought a Nash reported all these guys and now you want us to bring in Harden who? Look, we have three guys need the ball had probably have 30% usage on the ball, which is astronomically high.
Then you have a bunch of role players who did well without those guys in a bubble, and it's all right.
So you want us to do what? Trade a bunch of these guys or make tenement to go play.
So peace, you guys.
So it's the hardened Katie Kyrie show, so I think there's a lot of they make that trade.
There's gonna be a lot of tournament, but I think that people in that next front officer like, Hey, guys, this is this is for funeral Now how the hell do we get hardened? Ah, Kyrie and all these guys have been in systems.
Kyrie was in a system that he didn't like the Brad Stevens.
They get rid of Kyrie and they were in the Eastern uh, Eastern Conference finals this year with Kimble, who is a lots of player than Kyrie but made that system work a lot better.
You have a guy kid who's coming up in Achilles injury, who is material and emotional health and Harden, who goes around telling Oh, he spoke.
Thio, Carrie, tell him I want to play in a system, but literally you got rid of all the players.
Or at least some of the play, especially CP three.
Who could have helped you playing, um, or a better system.
And that first year CP three.
You're less users on the ball.
You look block effective off the ball.
And you guys, it looks like a really good you got Game seven against the Warriors.
You mean so that in that situation, I'm telling that front office, if they make that trade for Harden, is definitely gonna is gonna implode.
Man, there was no way.
What does it say about like the rest of the league? Because they're they're just, like, just dismantling, you know, like they're they're undermining the front office.
Whatever they wanted to do, their their their undermining.
All these role players, it's like that's all.
There's so much emphasis about the Knicks not being able to develop players, stuff like that. Look at the nest.
And this is just totally disregarding that whole connection between front office.
You know, uh, you know, in your your players and stuff like that, I just thought surface, right.
But this is the thing.
Sometimes let it burn.
Right, because you change the paradigm with which G m's from GM.
Uh, smart front offices and coaches come back into value.
If the Heat won this **** championship.
The idea that front offices proper team build proper coaches getting guys that complement each other, that would have been the NuWave.
Right now it will be the way because what they did in L.
A is just hard to replicate.
Rightto have those two.
It's hard to replicate, and I think that the whole I've got to play with a superstar be.
I think that that mold is it's still alive.
I think it's somewhat fading.
But if this next thing goes through and that that team in close right, let it.
Because if you now is gonna be like we don't wanna be the Nets, we can't put three high usage players whose games don't really complement each other.
but we want to put it together because their friends and let's get that out the way.
Let's go back to getting and play the players, right? Obviously C b a. Until the CB expires.
And they probably negotiate lower the networks to because it was a lot of money.
But until then, I agree.
Billion percent pay these players because they they're the money generated.
I'm not all these people who don't pay their millionaires.
They pay they they're providing service that we're all watching.
We watch it given more about money.
I agree that billion percent but higher, proper coaches.
That also goes to the coaching, too.
You can't have guys like Steve Mills in the NBA.
I'm hiring this guy because he's my friend.
You can't have that like I was.
So, uh, coach Sweet Jamal, Uh, Saint Francis, he's a he's a assistant coaches, right? And he was I was like, Yo, why don't Why don't you ever think about going to the MBA, Bob this knowledge with God, Yet he has records at ST Francis off Jamal Womack.
If you wanna look him up, could do really good point guard to Andre was just like, you know, it's It's like a lot of guys get the n b A.
They come in like they come with, like in clusters of Like what? Like, uh, I gotta put it.
It's like it's not as easy to just get you have to go through connections and you have to be a part of a coaching tree about a block and that sometimes those coaches just like, look, to do all this crap in the n b A.
I go to a team that has a lover or not LeBron, but this so called playing.
I can't coach the way I want to or I can't do it.
I'm gonna just go to college where I'll get paid at a B C.
You like Shaka smart.
I'll get paid at Texas. I'll get paid here.
Winds of this guy and I also have a three year from window.
But I'm I'm forced to drive this guy, play this guy's wins, so he's like It's not sometimes it's not worth it.
So to me, if they could change that Parramatta MBA man.
So I let it burn.
Let Brooklyn burn Brooklyn.
They're trying to outpace Knicks in New York.
Let me tell you something that's fine.
If you're watching, you'll never I'll paste the next in New York, you could lose for the next 50 years.
Literally have been living in the last 50 years you have been with No one's going to care about the Brooklyn Nets.
Trust me, people in Brooklyn.
But then people who are next fans, whatever.
But I watched you always be New Jersey that stores No one gives a **** about Brooklyn next.
Yeah, that's that's not fair to because, you know, Brooklyn, Brooklyn came over like people who live in Brooklyn have pride for Brooklyn.
I said that my on my podcast last night.
Also, You know, if you live in Brooklyn, you just gonna love the Nets anyway, because they're they're just gonna It is just something to cheer for.
So, you know, I just think that's just just they just taken advantage of, ah, situation like that and and they're they're just playing Solis.
It just Solis basketball, just just from the top to the bottom.
It's just it's told that they have They have a drink that Bed Stuy.
If you truly from new York.
Right for green, it's four green.
Clint Hill's, uh, then you could say La Garza and then Bed Stuy.
I mean, best ideas, like about 10 10 subway stops away from from the past.
You know what I'm saying? So if you take the or you take the sea right, you take the see you, you'll be on Lafayette, which is close to like Havana Outpost.
You take that George Washington, then like classes and also that that's that.
I think there's a stop.
But Marcy, if you're from Brooklyn back in the day, Marcy people and people from Fort Greene used to fight like this is how ah, fragment to Brooklyn used to be right? You don't That's like Andy.
If I said Oh, yeah, yeah, you guys both in Spain, right? So you know Barcelona, Real Madrid? Yeah, it's like, No, no, everybody's ********ing.
You they like, you know they want to split off.
No, that's how toned at the Brooklyn Nets are.
Like Ayrault said it perfectly.
The Brooklyn Nets represents gentrification right off.
I'm gonna coop what Brooklyn is, but I have no idea what the effort is, man.
Absolutely identity Have you got any bombs yet? Any any woes? Bomb? I think I might need to change the battery of my phone.
Man, this is not refreshing.
I don't see any news here, e like, uh, yeah, but get more.
What do you think about the benefits of the deal? Toe the Lakers for Danny Green in 28? Somebody I might have to think differently about that, because so I said, I'm like, I'll do the Nets.
How did the Lakers the lead? Just keeps helping out the Lakers, man, Because they're the most lucky franchise in history and history of basketball.
How many great players have they had? You know, like Magic Johnson was was a throwaway trade.
They traded for, uh, what was the guy's name? They used to run with Westbrook.
They numbers work on, uh, Jerry West, Whatever.
His backcourt mate.
They traded him to Utah, and that's how they got the number one pick.
Not Elgin. Right.
Um, this shooting guard that they play with Jerry West, I keep again his name.
Oh, not Barry, does it? No, no, no, no.
Uh, I can't I can't get his name, man, but I mean it was this backcourt mate.
They traded him to Utah.
That's how they got the Magic Johnson for the number one pick.
So there, like, so lucky man.
You know Kareem Abdul Jabbar? Yeah, I was, You know, I was reading the funny.
The funniest thing about this trade is like, how much more help is LeBron LeBron gonna need to get another chip away? No, but, you know, trading Danny Green.
He's an awesome player.
He though he's a journeyman.
He has traded know every offseason, bro.
He was the reason.
Yeah, it with the Spurs with the Raptors.
With the Lakers, he's like, moving every season now.
So they're just, you know, it was on Gail Goodrich is the guy was was talking about.
Yeah, So that how does Stroeder go to like that legacy? And this is why people, this is also, like, you know, so called diehard basketball fans just falling, uh, disillusion with the MBA.
You do everything that make a guy like LeBron James a great and you still want a trace check that chased the Jordan dream.
Now don't get me wrong.
They did do things for Jordan to his name, but that was once he established himself as somebody who carry a lead.
LeBron James and me whole thing.
I'm not hating on him or I'm not hitting.
But doesn't it feel a little cheap that this guy's playing on every team that he's one on? They've been heavy favorites or they were deemed as super teams.
Right? People say, Oh, but the Clippers blah, blah, blah.
But you look at that Lakers team and I'll give this.
They could see this credit.
Their zone defense in the playoffs was magnificent, and that's not you. Having star players.
That's coaching Vogel and kid.
However, they worked it out.
I don't know what is because they said that during the Lakers during the playoffs they would sit there and watch hours of film and all this other stuff that's good.
That's great coaching, Um, but again, it's just these cheap winds and then you got a guy like stroller and it's just like, Okay, it's got LeBron James getting older.
Um and you see it that he's not as a like look.
Yes, he had a great playoffs, but to me, the most dominant player in playoffs was 18.
Like their games with LeBron James.
That Game five, whatever was against the Heat, where 80 went six or nine or we have 15 points.
LeBron James had a triple double and they still lost.
But when 80th, scoring 15, 20 points in the first half was that one game he has.
He was seven for eight and a quarter is like dogs.
How the hell do I guard this guy? When if I touch him, he's getting fouled.
He goes to the line.
You could hit from the outside. You could drop it.
I can't hold this guy, LeBron James.
I'm not saying he stopped that LeBron James.
Not It's like the lead just keeps boosting up.
Like for what? You have Other stars.
Siri's versus the Utah Jazz was the best Siris in the playoffs, man.
Yeah, we needed that, man.
That was a great Siri's.
You tell you gonna say and tell me, and I'm not saying that they cheated for the Nuggets are treated the Lakers against the Nuggets.
But you can't say and tell me that even if even despite the fact of the bubble on that stuff that you would have been in tune toe watch.
Yokich and Murray face the heat you can't see and tell me that's not that.
Wouldn't have been two young teams.
You have a guy, Jimmy Butler and, uh, he's old was 32 33 but he's playing with a bunch of young Gunners who are playing out in mind.
Play with Jimmy Butler. Great system.
Spoelstra versus Thes.
Two guys from the West that every year they always just get knocked out.
Or is this all there? Just offensive team.
This guy Murray put up 52 against Donald Mitchell was like 50.
I mean, he had games where he was just looking invincible.
I mean, yoga is literally one D.
I think he's the best sent in the game now.
Ah, guy wasn't unstoppable.
Fade away shot with shooting threes.
He plays at two MPH, but he'll catch jumping each on and then look like a fool was looking like a poor man's.
A lot of one with his footwork.
I mean, you're saying so that's not captivating.
Basketball versus LeBron James and Lady and the Lakers.
I come home, and, uh oh, yeah, It's still there's still nothing.
Nothing going on on this own free agent stuff, man.
But, you know, let's xgo for on the shoulder thing because, you know.
Okay, See, now lost the point, right? Or they're still going to be willing to Tracy P three.
In that case, well, they gotta They gotta draft pick, right? The 20th was not that strong, but trading stroller.
That means that you're trying to rebuild.
So, you know, there's a timing.
Maybe they think that they're just trying to get a squid as possible because maybe they don't think they could get something before the draft.
Which that means that fix that works out for the next Friday.
They believe they can get something for Chris Paul, Uh, pick wise, just drive.
That means that they probably like Look, you know, we got our player.
We couldn't get in front.
We just Let's just use them as a salary.
Don't just get rid of that contract.
And I focused, you know, the You know, the thing was that they want to get rid of Chris Paul because of the the money off.
Well, if they get shoulders, He's like, what, 15.
That's only like the quarter right off CP three is making.
So now they're gonna give They have to get rid off another contract.
And the second this country is gonna be like, e think others right central down.
So I'm guessing, you know, they're gonna be looking to ship him as well.
Just just toe, you know, make you know, just to keep CP three.
Then just draft the one with them the last year, year, and then, you know, after that, maybe look for something to trade with CP three or just let him write down that contract and, you know, play with the young kids, making all you know gonna be like that, You know, the second comical leader or whatever on that team.
No, Maybe that's their plan.
Now, if they couldn't get anything that they wanted for CP three, maybe they're gonna go the whole ground.
That just ripped the rest of the team apart.
Yeah, I feel sorry for o k c fans, man.
Imagine just having to deal with that.
Like, oh, we're not getting better or we got to trade these contracts in order to survive.
I mean, like, move back to Seattle, man, get, you know, 17.
Somebody bring it back to scout.
If he's just gonna waste, you know, everyone's time.
You know, it's crazy, so I won't say this.
So how does this do you? Because I can't see him holding onto CP three.
I think that his trade value goes down a little bit now, obviously, playoff teams, that's going to get a lot more clear.
As you play in the season, you get closer to training Day line.
But I still think that you probably get more value for CP three.
Now, given that this draft isn't the strongest, um, a lot of guys that are uncer*****ies right at the point guard position.
RJ Hampton called Anthony Till Lewis A lot of questions.
Even the metal on them, uh, killing Hayes.
They have a bunch of question marks.
Don't you think that? Okay, see the better off trading CP three now versus trying to trade him in the trading deadline.
Well, you know, it depends was gonna be the package for what they're expecting for CP three.
Because if it's if it's only a salary dump.
So, you know, I don't think you're gonna have you know you're gonna get picked for him.
Yeah, that's absolutely not It's just too old.
You're gonna have to, you know, get bad contracts, like bad.
I mean, like, if he's getting 40 a couple of million, you gotta, you gotta know, match almost that salary until, like, the only the 10% difference.
So you gotta He is earning, like, 44.
You gotta have 40 million salary cap coming back.
So you know that that's that's a That's a weird thing because, you know, getting 40 million in players contracts like two good players earning, you know, about 20 million.
Or, like, 34 15.
So, you know, and getting three guys just toe set him on the bench and let the young guys play.
No, that that Julius Randle swap Isn't that looking that stupid? Because Randall is, like, not what? 26.
Now, I'm not saying he's gonna fit the revote plan, but maybe they can, you know, like I don't know living next season, right? And also, you know, about the Westbrook thing? I was thinking about it, and if he doesn't have a no trade clause, which I actually know dog into a little bit.
And someone said that that he couldn't have a no trade clause in his contract because he, like, opted in the okay, cdo ah, year early, right? So he couldn't demand that that no trade clause.
So basically, if he doesn't have that no trade clause, it's easier to trade.
No, like if your next right to trade for him because you can flip.
Because if he doesn't have that no trade clause, like on the trade deadline or like, you know, next offseason way.
Just find a team that's willing to give him those two last years of run and just get those pigs get whatever for him back, right, So you're not gonna be, you know, stuck with him for the next you know, till the like the deal, then you know, drives off.
You can just flip on for something else, right? Depends, though, if he's willing to play for you because if he is, he's gonna be hard for you to know.
Trade a guy that's, you know, putting every stops out on the court just just to be good for you. right.
So that's the other thing.
They all scared me.
I'm like, Yeah, this is the worst year, too.
Assess like this.
Your toe To be a team that needs a point guard this, I mean, tp throughout the love.
But are you gonna give a picks for him? And then will he be a play 60 70 games? Um, when healthy, Obviously based older Westbrook again.
He had a I would say a video with the rockets.
I ain't gonna lie.
But again, is that the same eyes gonna revert back to the O.
He's not really a pure point guard.
I mean, is he is a talent at the point guard at the guard position, period.
But you're still gonna have.
I'll hold that point guard, um, and that trade, cause I mean, are you building up Westbrook to get traded to another team? No, because, I mean, no one's gonna take that contract is for 2023.
So obviously that I think even a CP three cp three the type of God, because the impacts a game that No, I take that back because both the concert just ugly.
I just don't see how the team to take him unless you are stupidly desperate.
Um, to bring a point guard.
We heard rumors about the bucks, but again, the bucks, But I e three going to the box.
But it's just too much money, man, these guys know on these rocks, they don't even have enough players to trade for for $40 million you know doesn't making, but it doesn't make any sense.
You know, it doesn't make sense, either.
Is like, Why Why aren't we talking about getting Dennis Schroder? Because, I mean, the Knicks need a point guard, and they're gonna give them wait for for for 28 fixed and we can easily get 27 away and get e what you say.
You could have gave them like Ellington and the 27th pick.
Yes, really, Absolutely.
Way is helping the Lakers, man.
I don't believe this crap.
Because when cp three, when they could have traced CP three to the lake booth.
LeBron James, he gets up.
What? I shoulda coulda easy.
But this one could have been started for the Knicks on Look what you did the whole time.
I think that he Zenobia, point guard, But a guy with a year left on his contract with a 15 million.
So basically, you know, if you wanna keep, just hear of them next season.
Right? Way more. About 8.
He's way more value than anyone in this raft.
Hey, guys, what's up on the floor? Wait, Andy! Andy! Andy! Andy! Andy, please, Please, please, I'm begging you. Please let me do this.
I gotta kill Mark E s.
You gotta You worry.
Forgotten what I said about harden because right after right after Mark E.
I know what it was.
It was like, Yo, bottom harder, right? Right.
After all that stuff with
