Yo, What's up? What's up? It's in the end.
NBK representing then became fan with a special n betrayed our special, um, part two.
Because we were having part one before, Like, right after the trade moratorium came off so teams could trade you guys, we were on for, like, a hour and a half.
Now, we're just gonna hop on for, like, probably less than an hour, because we're gonna have next weekly on Simmons Roscoe Channel.
Who's the godfather of the next fan next? NBK.
You know, network.
So hop on us with, you know, within an hour on that channel off course we're gonna know finished stream and invite you there.
Well, to be true, I expected a little bit more trades with this.
You know, this more corn getting handed, So maybe not surprised, but, you know, a little bit disappointed.
But we still had, you know, the biggest.
Maybe not maybe two deals.
But at least one deal that happened, which is clear, is Paul got scented toe the Phoenix Suns and why I said, this is one of the biggest, you know, deals because my New York Knicks were looking, you know, trade for Chris Paul.
From what we were thinking, at least I don't know if the, you know, management was taking the same as the fast, but we heard some rumors of that happening.
So we were thinking that might, you know, it might happen.
So well, it's probably soon I'm gonna be joined by Marc Andre and the rest of gotta Guys.
Let's see who's in Chad.
What's up, Louis Boogie some way just sometime.
Yeah, we go. Let's roll, bro.
Got like Leicester.
Until then, no less lesson than an hour until Sim starts in the next weekly show.
We're probably gonna hop on there.
So Alta hold on, please.
Yeah, so, you know, going back to the, you know, to the trades that happen.
Not not many small exchange between Detroit patients in the Brooklyn Nets.
You know, things probably gonna happen because we saw the force Domino falling.
Received three going to the nets, the sons.
Let's see, you know, if we're gonna be able to pull off a trade, you know, as the New York Knicks, I'm hoping No, maybe not hoping, but I'm just thinking that you know the Westbrook deal might not happen.
And if it happens, I just pray that we're gonna give them, like the expiring contracts, you know, and just just crap, Let's say let's say like that crap, right? I don't know what their process is gonna be on the rebuild, because if I'm the Rockets and if they're thinking about letting Westbrook, you know, go and hard and go the numbers on a rip the rest of the team apart to shrimp.
No, they're going to rip it apart because number one right.
You've done what, as far as you can, team s capped out.
You can't add no players can't have no significant players, You understand? It's not like if you trade Russell Westbrook, you could get another, you know, Super young, talented player to play along. James Hart.
Once you trade Russell Westbrook, he's playing with a whole bunch of insularity pieces on the road place.
He ain't playing with another guy Azaz stronger as Westbrook, it's Yeah, it's gonna be able to help carry that.
So you might as well get rid James Harden.
Number one, Remember? While our kids and the owner, he has lost a lot of money, so This is another way of him getting out of paying out of a lot of money.
You understand? Exactly.
You know, the first step was letting Daryl Morey gone right, because he was the one that was orchestrating this whole thing with all the numbers, ****ytics and stuff like that.
He was getting them letters one by one and then getting rid of them one by one.
And now, you know, that's, you know, that's gonna be bleached out the whole thing.
So and this is a surprises me.
Because once you let Daryl Morey goes, it was just waiting for James Harlan to come to them and say, you know, listen, even if there are, Murray wasn't gone, and James Car didn't feel like bro.
We can't go anywhere. Can't go any further.
And they see what the teams right now.
It was just up to him like they were just waiting for James Harden to say, Yo, it's time to train me to another team.
So I don't think this come as a surprise in all honesty, when you just look at when you just logically look at the Houston Rockets, you say I look at things logically and what teams have to do all they should do to benefit them also.
But in this case, they have to, because now you're gonna trade Russell Westbrook and hardly wants.
And it's time for all of them to go more than I think he wants to go.
Things just time from the girl.
So now you could start.
This whole thing is the best time to strike to get as much assets you can for James Harden basically and rebuilt that team because remember, they gave up all their picks for Russell Westbrook.
So eventually you could have Westbrook.
You can have General and Westbrook for the next three years, right? It just be a winning team.
Also, it's cool to be a winning team also.
But when a three years old, who do you have to rebuild when you're paying all this money to? So you gotta strike when the iron is hot, As of right now, get what you can get and then rebuilt.
Remember, they could trade P J.
Tucker. People will love P. J. Tucker.
They could get they can get a player or pick or something for that, Aaron Gord Aaron.
Gordon Brown even.
You know, if I'm the rockets, I'm trying to get picks, right? Yeah.
I don't think I don't think players like you don't think you're gonna get out like a valuable, like a former first round.
No, But you still have to get young players, though, because you still want You still have a booth? Yeah.
You got a boss with the rope mark.
But when you look about it when you look on it, right, Okay.
17, even picks 17.
And it's just a 2022.
It's the other pigs that someone said in livestream trade All that, you know, that that was only one pig.
And, you know, if the pick didn't you know if it came on to be restricted, right? Like active.
So they the one pick that they were getting in that deal moves the second year, Right? 2023.
And if it's, you know, falls in the protection again, goes to 2024.
, just if it doesn't pan out, you have to go.
You know, you're literally your later, okay? Because the way I want someone to roll it out.
They wrote it out as and this is this is all the pics they collected, So I didn't know it was like that.
So the sun's wanted that trade, and they get to keep that they tempt.
Get out of here, bro.
Get out of there.
They want that they want that, bro.
Yeah, I just listen, Mark.
Mark, just listen up.
If I'm the rockets, uh huh.
They're gonna be in trouble if they if they're gonna deal both Harden and Westbrook.
And this is why they're not gonna have that amount of picks, right? The West is gonna get better, and they're gonna be looking at a ble future, right? Because teams in there division and conference, even that they played most games versus in a season.
Yeah, of course.
So they're gonna be they're gonna stink out the joint, But you know what to I don't think they're gonna one.
I think there's still a city that you can get free agents into to you just get pieces that can keep you above water, but not so sucky like it's not like it's not like when you blow up a T and you're blowing into the freaking coal.
You know what I'm saying? You're blowing it up to keep playing.
You blowing up to keep place to that One star is a free agent.
Sometimes you could just go for that one started and put another person with it.
But they have to start trading now because James Harden's what? 30 31 32? Yeah, I gotta pull the pin.
Yeah, he's been here for eight years, man.
And like I said, I never had them beating Golden State.
Whoever had them beating Golden State is just dummies because it just you're just not beating the best team in NBA history.
James Harden did what he could have done for that team, and he's done it well because he's been into the Western cars finding four times in the wrong.
So don't tell me that he failed.
He fell against a great team, and that's all you can ask for.
He had a good run e get wrong. E.
I have four years or what's the Easter conversation with the Knicks? I'll be glad flat because at least they have the puncher's chance.
That's the thing.
It's not like you go into son and you don't have a chance, you just get obliterated.
Houston was the only team that I've seen Golden golden Golden State sweat like little legitimate sweat.
Where where? I'm watching television and I'm gripping my sheets.
And Mark just just just imagine the Knicks in the 99 season, right? They had, like, one year being in the finals, right? And, you know, like, one year that, you know, next time, you know, 97 right? We were also good, but we still, you know, didn't get the chip.
But those were like, one year and one year, right? You guys were, you know, four times in a row, four times in a row.
Eight years of high level basketball.
James Harden. Exactly.
So like when people talk about his playing style Cool.
You know what is playing stuck in when they added D'Antoni? That's where they got worse.
That's when it got more prebuttal.
Because now people bringing D'Antoni everybody know what d Antoni does.
Everybody was criticized D'Antoni about his offense and it never changed.
James Harden never used to play like that.
Never, never did.
This is a dude that used to cut.
He's still one of the most.
He's still one of the most top 10 passes playmakers in the sleep.
So I don't like when people say he dribbles, dribbles through possessions and stuff like that.
What he don't do is that he doesn't does enough like picks, and cutting for his other is for his other play and stuff like that.
That's what Chris Paul was getting mad about.
A lot of the stuff used to.
Okay, See, he stopped doing when he went to use some.
Robinson ain't got with D'Antoni, but, like when people are telling me James Harden Good.
I don't know what's good tea.
Oh, I just don't know what's good to you, because people would tell me Randall is good, but James Harden is a big problem.
E. I wish I had that problem.
Well, like you said, it was just this D'Antoni.
Once you get Dan Antonio and he runs, just play one last legs.
You know of whatever you play one way you play one way.
Yeah, they they they gutted their team to make that works.
Who so that they gotta pull the pin and just let them. And the thing is fatigue.
A did this on himself because he wanted Russell Westbrook.
He wanted him to, so he traded for him.
So now he got he has a he has a get out card.
Trade those two and get your pieces.
And and you don't have to pay over luxury tax because right now your business is hurt.
He's not like other billionaires.
He's, like, type of business that he got.
Kobe is hitting them hard, bro.
Hey, just lost $200 million in China.
It's time a year that James on is enough.
And just to plug it in because this is, you know, the like, the n betrayed special hour or something like that.
Orlando has signed their 2019 number 16 overall pick.
Mantra? Yeah, he's a good. He's a good player.
He was playing in Germany, I think.
Yeah, he's a e thought they already signed them.
That's kind of like like puzzling that he just signing him now.
Yeah, they like they had him over their stash of I think he's coming over to play this Because if your if your draft think a guy Yeah, you got it right? Yeah.
Whenever you sign them, then the rookie deal starts to get, so he might be coming over.
You might be coming over your first pick work.
No other team will, you know, was able to sign them.
So you know, they have the right, right? And then, you know, then then you signed a deal with him.
So where did you get drafted? What was his? His draft was 19 and he was drafted on the 19.
Yeah, number 1916 16.
Number 16, Number 16.
That's pretty high for stash, you know.
Well, the stash was Is that good enough, bro? He's good.
E Think it was a three, right? I think you didn't pick him up right away because they had because I Yeah, now he's injured.
So you bring him in, you bring him in because we don't know.
What is it gonna be after after he comes back? Because I said I think Marcus Well, he had an injury like William Access.
I think he had a Tony a c l.
So it was like we have here with him.
Unit is not one of those top leagues in the in Europe, right? Have a good teams.
But, you know, I think I think that's why they stashed them.
You know, here, Germany has also good doctors, good clinics.
So they worked on, uh I do want the next toe.
Look at Leandro.
Uh, tomorrow I Yeah, I think he will be great.
A great pick up, bro.
Like something about me tells me that he's gonna be good.
Mark this week's games, you know, off Barcelona got postponed due to call the things.
Yeah, he's the He's the best ball handler in that league.
Yeah, I think he has reminisces, Ginobili, when I watched him play when I think it is fearless Italian kid, right? Yeah, he's fearless, man.
He's when you just watch him play.
The dude is smart.
He plays defense.
Hey, plays different.
He's Yeah, he's He has great size to He's like, what, six looking at six.
And I think he's 66 I believe, 6566 But if he's 6768 even better, even better, right? Even better.
But if I was the next because I know that mixes looking at Isaiah Stewart.
That was another guy.
I talked to Simms chat in the beginning of the year when we should start talking about that is another guy at the floor the I think if we draft him, he's gonna This dude right here, bro.
His motor alone is going to excite you.
This the only thing he is? Those elbows, man.
You gotta keep those elbows down.
He's always yeah, elbows every time. Yeah.
And the thing is, the thing is, he's not athletic, but the dude you're not moving him like this, is it.
This is a type of do that in Gard.
Big guys in him and he spread the floor and can shoot.
Like Like I'm not talking about learning to shoot.
He can shoot, he can shoot the ball.
But his rebounding is exceptional.
He might have a little bit of Quincy.
A CNN to he looks like a guy that was dropping a second man, but a little more better than him.
No, he's a little more better.
You have a little more better guy, like, you know, in in, uh, you know what your mom, your mom.
Ben Wallace with more offense, honestly, Just promote alone.
Ben Wallace with office, ReMax says.
That's another possibility.
It's his offensive game.
If it's offensive, get better.
Speak the possibility.
But that kid is that kid motor alone.
Any kid, any kid that have a motor like that.
I do not count their ceiling.
You just can't because that means he loves again.
He wants to get better.
He just gotta work on it.
It depends on the fit on his team.
It depends on if the coach believes in it.
That's why a coral Listen, man, if you watch Paul George, his office was nothing like it was.
His offense had to catch up with his defense, but because he had a motive and because he was good at one thing.
And then he learned and learned and learned bro.
I think I e think he could become better than what people are projected in the B bro like I have faith in him like I will give him time to become whatever he can become.
But I think he's going to be ah, good eh? NBA player? Maybe a maybe.
Ah, high starter.
Because, e, I think that's something that's not really talked about enough.
You were talking about skills and stuff like that, but has, like he's self driven.
You don't gotta like.
You don't have to worry about, you know, man.
Yeah, you don't have to worry about him.
And when you talk about skill, it's not just shooting broke, skilled just not just shooting so awareness.
So all of that stuff is I. Q.
For the game e think shooting is the easiest thing you can fix for players? Absolutely.
Repetition, repetition Again.
You can do it like two people in the gym, But let me ask you a question.
When you watch them in college, this mechanics don't tell you that you can't shoot.
Ah, lot of people want that comes in the dress.
Looks like that is their mechanics.
His mechanics tell me he can shoot his mechanics.
Tell me he could shoot is just that you know what it was with him.
He had more of a role there where he did what he did, and he was great at so he he emphasized that and it was working.
His team was winning.
So why? Why would you cannot continue to keep doing? I know, get passing up shots, but again, passing up shots for good shots.
And you might be reluctant taking shots.
But now you know you're gonna have a coach is gonna tell you to shoot the ball.
But when I watch you shoot the ball, it's not like it's clunking.
It looks fluent.
He just he didn't take enough three.
That's what people talking about.
He never took enough threes in college.
Why is that? Why is that not taking enough threes, make you a bad player? It annoys.
It really annoys me because the conversation.
Yeah, it really annoys me because it's I they say about 77 current go what? Eight.
But he he was 28 points.
He got the win, and he was one of the reasons why he had a bad game.
What the hell are we watching? What the hell are we talking about? Yeah, it's like it's like the saying, right? You don't critic with the winners, right? Yeah, Like what the hell is that? I'd rather win the game than be one that there be one for eight than than losing and once a don't dictate don't dictate.
Yo, what you're doing the game.
So watching many of game with Steph Curry had bad three points tonight.
But just in being on the floor is a plus minus on the floor.
That's all I need to know just because just because the kids don't kid don't put up six threes a game.
I don't mean that he can't shoot the bowl office just annoys me, man, are we talking about just We're talking about it shooting in general.
Like how they would say, Like if Steph Curry is one from three from one for eight from the game, he had a bad game, but he ended up with 28.
7 assists, six rebounds and won the game.
That was a bad game for What the hell is that? What is that? How is the one that's gonna have a bad game and people know what they're looking at anymore? Well, you can have a bad game, but your impact to make so make other players played a certain level, right? So, you know, bad decision making, where if you know you don't have it for the night, right In a certain place where you see if I have time right? There's certain guys that shooting, say, one for eight. Whatever.
The first half like them. I don't got it tonight.
Let me facilitate.
Let me defend. Let me set some picks.
Let me do the dirty work to get God involved.
But the prospect of me possibly bring home like I'm not saying that it will take a shot a second half, but even just let me get back into the game.
Let me take away from other.
I've seen players, For instance, you go back to Damian Lillard in the first playoff game against the Lakers.
I thought he had not a great game, but what happened at the end was that, you know, game time came on right? If you watch from like the second, remember they were up by, like, 13 in the first quarter going in the second quarter, and then then the people who are leading them, who will carry them with Turkish and McCullum.
But if you watch him like the second quarter, even into the third day, Mother was taking these absurd game time shots like, uh, you can the team out, you're taking the team out of it and he almost lost it.
But if you remember, McCullum was killing that game, he was efficient.
Nerdish was efficient, too, and they went away from the Turkish kind of being like a zone breaking and cut through the middle.
They make those kind of not cross country, but those won't pass him as he's coming through the middle he went through.
That's how he got his points. Especially the first half.
You could Dio you could definitely look, you gotta have a bad individual game, especially if within context you're just chucking up shots.
And I have seen looks that occurred to me, one of greatest point guard the whole time.
I think that he can do that because when him he's 43% from 34 career certain players that you look at them and like, well, he's gonna get it.
But the best place to tell you hey, sometimes I just didn't have it right And there are other ways, right? Instead of just he could.
But you really chucking right.
That's why sometimes they say, get to the basket tryto find your shot by getting to the foul line by drawing files around the game.
And there's only a few players that when you see them play, they get that when my shooting game is not is not on tonight, vice versa.
I can't get to the basket, my hips airtight.
Something's on for me tonight.
Let me shoot, you know? I mean, I've seen it in days where you know, friends away.
Tim Hardaway Jr is a perfect example of this.
Where he doesn't The name of the game is playing within the flow of the game.
I don't know if you guys remember where Michael Beasley was killing one game killing like he was like 5456 or six in the last question is going through men, right? Oh, yeah, And even KP was just feed it to him, Peanut.
Just constantly feed him.
And then I think it was like the end of the first half of my ******* about end of the first half, like th J like just thio and then first happened to the time I forgot what it was.
And it took like two bad shots and two is like dogs, even K.
People like Yo pass it to be easily like e o.
E What Fraser says the best.
He's like, Why go away from the hot hand? He's like, play that guy into his limbs, fall off that guy within that quarter.
Within that context, the ball is not coming out his hands until he goes cold.
And players also don't realize that.
So you can have a bad game.
You can have a bad game myself, Curry.
But what you're complaining is that his impact within the game right opens up for everybody else. And you know that.
Step curves of 43 45 whatever percent shooter.
So you always have to respect it now one of the best point for a long time.
Because I've seen like that green when some curry the last two championship, they have a baby, right? They were gazing because me personally, I think that stuff Curry kind of got ****ed that he's never won finals.
M v p right and I e understood the light.
I think that he was trying to play.
Let me be the guy who be the scene regards to the fact that the Warriors after Game one.
They destroyed the Cavaliers.
So but stuff I've seen it Where Katie is kinda have to pick up that slack.
Because stuff here, come down, Chuck.
Shots don't go, Chuck.
Shot doesn't go. You've got back games.
Let's not act like Wait, hold on, Hold on.
I remember that game.
It was the Game three of the cabin.
Unless he had one bagging out of that out of that series.
And Kevin during did, too.
When Steph Curry out, I have to pick it up.
You know what? This when it came to that, when it comes to the final M v p joint, it's about narrative, just like it was for Iguodala.
Because if you watch the last three days off the woman Iguodala one.
If Steph Curry did not cook that tune wasn't winning.
That team wasn't, wasn't.
You know cable really need toe watch these games and look at it.
Look at it closely.
Because the last three games Steph Curry went ballistic.
Not because Andre Iguodala guarded, guarded LeBron James.
I know how many defendants.
There s so many defenders that God is the best player should they get finals? M v p.
Anthony, actually not finding anything since he got it. Almost everybody.
But he gave it to LeBron that she became a narrative thing, man.
They gave the Katie because to make him happy.
Yeah, I don't mean to laugh at, but your your eyes popped out your hair like I've never seen anybody buddies, man, but e u e o you hear a game three of the 2017 finals.
Actually, one bad game in that Final one game, 3.
9, 2017, he had 14 points, neck minus 26 4.
Sorry to for nine from the three point line on And then let me see.
Then he also Seth Curry.
Kevin, Kevin Durant that Curry has had bad games because I don't again because of his impact, I would never look at Steph Curry and blaming for taking the shots, I think, but Steph Curry is also one of a kind, so he can kind of do that right? He's the type of guy that is gonna quick sometimes.
And sometimes I got 17 years old.
He thought it if he had a bad game and they would lose People would be honor.
But, you know, since you have a bad shooting game and they got a Yeah, just think about that five year stint.
Just think about it.
Well, I've seen I've seen well, when that first finals, right? Because claim Thompson had a few bad games and he was e.
I don't see the blame being put like, ****, yo, Clay Thompson was not on.
He could've drove this team.
Albar block five games, right? Five or six.
Weber was right.
But you know, you look, you can have a bad game.
I think I think one thing that people just don't like Steph Curry Yo, they don't grow, they don't grow.
It's almost like it's almost like a because he has everything in Nirvana and people want that.
People wanna play like that.
Players want to play like that.
But you see a guy who is people consider him like they think that he's boozy.
So did you know? I think he I think he's confident who he is.
That's why I like e.
I'm saying what people say.
I'm not saying what I'm saying.
I'm saying that.
I think that like you said, he's confident, but I don't give a **** about any of that stuff.
I think that people look at this family, the jealous.
I think that people also the fact that when you take down established quasi who's supposed to be the savior of basketball.
Um, in LeBron James, right? People get mad at that like oh, Seth Curry to give all these caveats Because remember, a lot of people treat LeBron James like he's Jesus.
So a guy like Curry who? I don't know what it was to begin the season.
I don't think they were favorite ought to win that first championship.
I could be wrong, But if you if you told me the finals team.
Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Clay Thompson versus No Loving LeBron James.
I'm pretty sure nine times out of 10 you're Yeah, LeBron James.
Yeah, so if Steph Curry can't come, comes there and destroys all these people's dreams now you have it.
Oh, Steph Curry issues about like dogs. Steph Curry.
People forget how good Steph Curry was on the ball.
Like people like, I don't hurry being this master dribble being this really good facilitator, he's not he's not quick enough by my dogs.
They let me have highlights of abusing Chris Paul when he made Chris Paul fall twice on across so that you know there's two plays in the league when they see Steph Curry.
They just go nuts.
Is Chris, Paul and Daniel If you go back and watch their games, you know, I never seen two players that just wanna rip this dude apart broke.
I've never seen competition so intense when when? Those Because you're in the top of the food chain.
So they want to get on top, they want to eat them and their people don't know that used to training.
They are jealous because being, uh, one of my favorite players to watch.
I don't hate ding, right? But the day in time thing was in response to Steph Curry.
I don't care what no one says in terms of not in terms of his creation, but how now he's doing it.
Like if he literally plays to that, he's almost like art imitating life imitating art, where he's actually all into that when I've known date little to be a better score, I don't care what? No one says Dame Lillard.
Don't watch even go watch the last game against the Lakers.
The Lakers having a playoff, that team.
Yes, they lost, but they they they look ah, lot better as a full team without when Dame Little was out.
Not to say Daniel is one of best guys.
I'm not saying that, but Daimler is falling too much.
You're trying to chase the ghost of creating way, too, because, you know, one thing about this is why this is why Nainggolan he needs to learn how toe play off the ball sometimes because he could be that much more effective.
But when he, when he's handled the ball he's handling is predictable offense.
That's why the like his defense book is so good.
Because you just know what they're going to do every time.
Down off floor, bro with Mark.
Just Woody Mac SportsCastr salute to you.
But you literally blocked out Woody Mac by saying ****ytics because it has the word **** e I was trying to figure out what the What? Why they beefed it out like that? Yeah.
I'm sorry about that, Mark.
I just What? Matt is not your fault.
But, you know, like when you give teams like when you give teams like the Lakers that that that that run a load up on one side.
Because every team LeBron James went went toe his defense scheme is toe load up on one side.
Guys, I want some ****ytics.
So you guys have some ****ytics a on then Then you worry about you know, why sports, guys, that ain't popping me.
You know, e e go front idea.
As long as you could see my curse on him, which I really don't.
I'm surprised myself because normally when I'm outside, I cursed a couple.
But Chris man, Christian is the better.
It has has more drama e a pro sports.
Got something I'm gonna let you know we're gonna fight with e Think you can't? I think you can type it because it's more like a bullying thing.
Because God yeah, let me ask.
You can't take criticism way.
I'm sorry. Cp three score.
Sorry. We can't get Russell Westbrook, right.
Time with us, right? What would we do? Draft wise that point guard position.
Do we trade up for Terryl Terry into the team's maybe a Carol Lewis because I don't see a Or do we take that 14, 26 30 which I think the 26 30 I'm not sure we're still gonna get as much value from that versus an 8.
20 because the drop off in talent humongous.
So what? I'm gonna tell you this camera.
I trade one to get four chances at one player.
So what's your What's your strategy? S.
So my strategy is if, ah, horror, don't fall there because I heard Knicks love him.
They would take him if you got eight.
So if he's not there, if he's not there, I'm doing.
I'm trading down.
I'm trading up, bro.
Give me 14, 26 30 because I can find those guys after the eighth pick.
Those type of players in this dry because you have a bunch of shooters in here, Don't you think that can make shots? What your wings that can defend.
So I would trade to go get three more players since I can't get my one and I have chances off those three players, at least one of them doing some, including all 27 picks.
So, you know, just just just my clothes.
Yeah, the total close.
Yeah, yeah, because people talking about Naysmith like he's some next coming defender.
Are you something that's coming player? He could shoot the ball, but he thinks everything else he stinks.
It's kind of one dimensional, very one dimensional.
He kind of reminded Martell Webster, you know, you say, Mark one dimensional.
Apologized Naysmith Naysmith.
Yeah, No, no, I just I said to the 23.
I said, You guys are report about talking about talking about Nate Smith.
Man, Nate Smith is so one dimensional.
Dribble can't do that.
He is in any other draft.
A guy like Nate Smith goes into the second round and I said, God, he's a nice because think about this, right? He's on Lee getting this attention because of his using two on, and he was a man at Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt didn't play anybody but over on at Times.
Column is productive, like 18 points.
But when a car was guarding at times, Carl, I believe that, like a block it.
Yeah, this is really good defensive injury history you're talking about.
A guy is so limited.
If you look at the shot chart, you goto the Stepien dot com.
He literally does not have one midrange shot from the left side of the court.
I don't want that.
I don't want that.
That's like a deep like that part.
Right next to that.
He doesn't have one mid range shop literally the mature because I had this argument freezing, hopefully freezing.
Give me the video posted.
But if you don't argue with freezing Gamow, we had a We had our We had a debate off Naysmith over vassal off like five points and I want all five points right.
We talked about offensive impact on the Knicks.
We talked about defense.
We talked about flexibility.
We talked about sealing in floor and then we talked about something else and literally Naysmith.
When you're breaking it down, it's like, Oh, I like to diet to score.
But I'm like, Alright, they said that because from the priest he's a fishing right.
I'm like, Okay, put like this.
You take a guy who has high usage in a lower tier system, right? Play the sec, right? This ain't the a, C C sec Plano opponents.
This past year, he had a high uses at 26%.
Believe the average 51 point whatever 51 whatever, 51% in the last 32% from I mean from the three point line, right? You have to replicate that same system.
Right? Guys are fast because this is not the most fleet of foot of fast as fast, right? You talk about trying to replicate that in the MBA.
That really happens for a guy who's not a superstar level player, even at the rookie level.
Usually you don't even have rookies that they built the whole system around, right? Versus a guy like vassal who can do it on both ends of the floor.
And granted, That's what makes you a superstar.
But he compliments this team E we're talking about. We're talking about Bridges.
Imagine got like that's what we told Mr Robinson having trouble or even Randall having trouble with having to take on guys Uh, when they passed three, when the ball handling passed through their guy because we have weak defenders in the backcourt, that's not gonna lie, that that happens much Mitch Robbins Not gonna be in foul trouble as much you talk about guys like R. J. Barrett.
Uh, they're gonna play off each other.
I've seen they complement R. J.
Barrett as well, too, but we're talking about also having r.
Barrett learning how to shoot.
We're also gonna need somebody down, download or somebody slash to the basket.
Yes, that is not the greatest society of the basket, but he's also a guy who has the chops agreed to develop.
And he's a good pastor.
Has good court vision.
Naysmith don't got that people the people who are going to be busting his drive.
And I'm not trying to issue nobody.
I'm if he's taking high Naysmith E Patrick Williams.
Oh, him, him, him.
I'm gonna tell you something, Patrick warns Why people you know, given the Clippers officially announced that they hired as an assistant coach.
Your boy Kenya Atkinson Mr.
Equal Opportunity E Kenny Atkinson.
But this is good for Kenny Atkinson, right? People can Good book.
That is wrong, e they're gonna remax they're gonna stop.
Are they gonna be any worse than under? Well, actually Well, Doc Rivers is a better.
Kocian and top Tyrone.
Let me tell you something you like about e o tell you why I like him.
I'm gonna tell you why.
I e like, go ahead. Because he has.
He has the attitude that God don't go home.
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
Because everything that Thailand does offensively is exactly what Doc Doc Rivers does.
But what I'm talking about attitude I'm talking about when Doc Rivers didn't get up in the faces of your superstars.
That was a problem.
That was a problem.
Lou is going to do it.
He almost got a heart attack from LeBron jeans.
Hey, almost freaking passed away.
E o e he literally once at the hospital.
He was in a e o when he tried that on Spoelstra the great Mom, You're gonna cut that noise.
You don't do that to my coaches tithe you got you got you got You got the godfather, bro.
What? What? You can't Pat Riley.
He's the Godfather on day, bro.
You cannot equate that with the Clippers is not the same way to coach Paul.
George needs that battery in his back to be like, Yo, you can do this in clutch situations.
Koala is always gonna produce right? But he's not that you don't have to get in his face.
He knows how to play the game of basketball.
It is Paul George.
That means that you talk.
It is not LeBron James.
We're just gonna get a culture facing person out like that, Like LeBron James e.
Don't you mean Thio? Yeah.
When you bring energy, he's assertive as a man when he's coming toe man, I'm not talking about yelling at a plan.
I'm not talking about talking down on the play on what he's doing.
I'm talking about how you politics, how you present.
No, he's not about he's not a run on ****ytics, bro.
You don't run on ****ytics, bro, because everything he does is what Doc Rivers is the same thing.
I just think he's more served.
I think he's way more certain things with the Clippers.
So the Clippers really don't have a roster right now because they've got to figure out what they're gonna do.
A power forward.
They gotta figure out what they gonna do with this way and stuff like that.
What are they gonna dio? It's the MBA.
Listen, uh, the Williams do He's gonna have takers regards because he could score my tres Harold when he gets trade is gonna be a sign and trade.
There's gonna be You gotta remember, there's a team that wants a guy like that regards if regardless if you think a team don't, there's always a player 14.
But what are the Clippers looking to get to replace those type of guys? E can't tell you that.
It depends on what the market is out there for.
We can't I can't tell you anything was gonna go down.
What? Players going on Get traded.
I don't know right now.
What about campaign? Who e o Oh, God.
You doing ****ytics again? Oh, my God.
You know, they go from KP, man.
They trying to slowly get that second start.
That 2nd, 2nd guy to come in, man, they wanted you how they possibly e left.
Back like, Oh, that would have been funny.
But what I wanna ask about the whole KP thing is like, What do you think Dallas is going to do? Because I mean, like, it doesn't look too good about them making a playoff.
You they're gonna They're gonna use them as a spots, which is what they want because they told him not to be.
They don't wanna be down low.
I don't want to play in a post which I think it's stupid.
Um, but this is this experiment they want.
Play him, play him on the outside as a spot shoot until he gets, um, strengthen his knees.
Um, but they see in the KP experiments not as hyped up as is made out to be, Man, he's not that type of player, but because his body type his body type is not conducive to contact to wear and tear is just Well, I mean, you know, they're definitely gonna gonna gonna be in trouble to missing the playoffs because he's gonna be out like, the beginning of the season.
And then he said that he's gonna be trying to be available on the first of January.
So it's like a week, probably like game.
So the first of January is this.
Now, remember this the same team that brought him back.
I still think relatively early because the next one to sit in for a while, which I thought was the right decision, especially the go to guy that tall and lanky and weird.
Um, well, I marriage kind of rushing back, remember? Years old? Oh, yeah.
I can come back and take the pictures when physical, visit him and him running the track and all that crap.
Do you think that they're rushing him back? Uh, getting back playing by January, You know, I don't think, you know.
Yeah, but, you know, my question is, what are they gonna get to the team? Because they need, like, that 2nd, 3rd option? Yeah, they need some help, because, I mean, the rest of the West has gotten better.
And, you know, look, look at Phoenix.
Phoenix has jumped him right now.
So they got a job for If they're gonna try to get some from the guard again, they need they need scoring wings, right? I think that and they do need a big who can also scores.
Well, to um my replicate what Katy did, but they gotta run.
Do the one who looks like Dominican.
Um, our just problem.
Nah, it wasn't him.
Is even on that.
I think it may have been a my bad.
I want to do this in a minute, but he's not.
He's like Africa.
Some some weird bite African.
I forgot what he was, but I think he's gonna marriage my bed.
Th j that team there they they were talking about getting dimwit evils a dimwit e drew holiday and somebody else.
And what? I'm looking at it like, Hey, you wanna take a look off the ball now, like Luca, This is not gonna do what with a garden is a ball.
What takes out with They said Buddy Hill to Dallas.
That might work, But he Oh, he wants out of Sacramento.
And he's willing todo yeah, he got he got benched because he just wasn't good to be a starter and another look better than him.
So yeah, of course you wanna leave that because he's not gonna be starting for Sacramento.
I'm gonna throw the back.
I'm gonna throw the bag at, you know? Uh oh, yeah, E.
Just remember when he was signing buddy.
Hell, they don't even want to give him that money.
And they was right.
I wouldn't give a one thing Listen, the dude could score, can shoot the basketball.
But it almost like, reminds me of Kevin mind.
Is he really? Is it really gonna do much for me for me to pay him that much? No.
And it showed cause you got bench when you get bench and getting paid that much money, that tells a lot about your game, bro.
It's just not clicking here.
Now you got to go.
And when you watch Bondo novich his his impact on the on the floor is a little more better.
And he declined the extension that was given them.
So he's definitely gonna get his money.
He's gonna get about 70 million.
20 more million from the 50 54.
I think it was given in.
So he's gonna get his money.
He rolled deserve, because he's a little more better and more tougher when you watch him play.
Mommy, Mommy a drug It He's a good player, man.
E mean, that is another interesting name.
That one. He seems in a stopgap.
A team like I think, that they will benefit from a drive project creation.
I mean, people get older, but a lot more that point guard position can facilitate a lot better.
Uh, Patrick Beverley, I don't think he leave Miami, though now A but I'm not saying at all.
Garages have done so.
Take out them. Trained for Yannis.
Right? But a guy like butler not to say it becomes a pure point guard.
Um, e crazy entered the building.
E I wanna welcome you because you always give me a shout out on your You know, my morning, you know, welcomes.
So I want to shout you out and I don't know if everybody knows, but Free z had a conversation within Giants legend today.
Hall of Famer have Mr Harry Carson.
So the opportunity just how the hell he get him.
So trees is connected, man.
Yo, yo, yo, I'm just going to see a lot of these people all on getting these these these ****ysts, What they're paying to get these those maybe friends with him, maybe sort of do in South Carolina and was like, Yo, man, crazy has to pay up a dinner pro E YouTube.
Take great Felton toe. Burger King.
If I had to guess like that, I asked mad questions that people don't ask place.
Like I'm that type person. I ask questions.
I would ask questions that people wouldn't ask.
So I kind I kind of don't want I wouldn't want guess like that on my show, so I'm a little more.
I could be a little more intrusive.
Just more just like, yeah, I wanna know.
And then restraining orders.
Restraining orders will follow.
Right? E gotta answer that crap.
They want a list of questions before because they don't want you thio questions.
That's all the interviews they do with a lot of these.
A list of questions where you're gonna talk about so it's not You don't catch them off guard and you have a forward just come off the whole time.
I'm not sure I'll make freeze.
I'm pretty sure freezing is like, you know, I know you're not gonna asking crazy questions, but yeah, they have a shirt in the title.
Yeah, he's doing a thing, man.
Yeah, that's my God, man.
He needed to see Oh, stop trolling, man.
Because Dad's gonna be gonna be ending up in arguments.
You ready to fight him? Like stop, bro.
I'm trolling man people tell you trolling now I wanna be Charlotte Charlotte, man, he talks too much.
Is a man like he like he wanna know your personal business.
You wanna know he wanna know your favorite *** position? That's the type of dude he is.
I don't like that, bro.
Yeah, but he wears foundation and all that stuff.
So So what do you expect? Yeah, so he's a big data mail.
Those those are beta males.
I'm not I don't act like intrusive questions.
Just like questions that people want to hear.
I'm not afraid to ask it, but you know, those those people who don't wanna be chastised on the internet like that.
Hey, are you a fan of ****ytics? No, I'm not really offending.
It looks like the artist, man.
Well, let me say this.
So what change? Really? Right.
You could talk about how this is, but that's what they're saying.
That you put the **** booth when you talk to think about that.
There have been people that have it.
They have calculated that machines have computers in their brain, right? So they can't see you Mitt off.
That put up a bunch of ****ytics to you.
But they watch the game.
They know what's right.
Right? So again, I just You know, I don't like that I don't like people so called my tweeners like Daryl Morey.
Oh, like what? What do you think, Tex Winter Jackson eyes that they probably use ****ytics, but it looks look like a high level.
What diehard doing? Oh, just just you know what it looks like? Demo team trying to like Golden State when you don't have two of the best shooters in the world the last four years.
That's putting a little look like Yeah, yeah, because they're one of the best animal proteins in history.
What happened with the Hawks? Well, they trying Yeah, they're trying todo now they stuck that.
We'll see what they do in the draft, but well, then well, the hooks Is this true? The Hawks got $49 million on worth of cap space.
Yes, they dio a lot of money for a team with those young guys they got on there.
Yeah, he needs one vet.
They need a vet.
Yeah, but here's the thing, right.
Cap space is like a gift and a curse, right? Because yeah, of course you. So you have to pay for somebody.
But you don't wanna be in a situation where you're given a short term deal to a black talent, and then he's playing for the wrong incentives, right? You give him a one plus one like that, or even just one of your deal, He's like, Now I'm gonna be given my status.
That's why I'm gonna get But, you know, they got they got two guys that you know.
You know this guy, Trey.
Youngest averaging 29.
The other one that has 21.
Yeah, I'm not paying him.
Get a terror issue.
So you might be That's another player, right? That that will produce his numbers.
But there is no type of impact on that floor. He looks good.
Yeah, but that she didn't produce into winnings.
Yo, bro, sometimes putting up numbers.
Don't tell the whole story, bro.
And to pay him over $100 million.
Get the hell up out of here.
You wanna I rather trade? You first.
Get whatever I could get back from you paying you four years.
100 or something? Something you ain't no Max plan your role playing, uh, Williams gonna get traded to Atlanta so you can get those wings.
That's what Max said.
Uh, a Oh, come on.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, his demands.
Because what he wants, But he didn't get a max.
He's not getting a shower.
Get he might get e.
Think when when they trade him anything that takes him.
I think he's a three year, $45 million.
Dio backs Montreal.
How? He's not getting nowhere close.
Getting nowhere close to that.
Clippers don't have no 57.
No, they have a right.
So that's a thing.
So they control just Winston.
You know what makes apart appointment? Because, you know, the Clippers were kind of like spiraling with all the off court stuff, man.
So that you know, Harold really playing like himself, you know? So maybe maybe I attribute to why he, you know, kind of like exposing the playoffs. This ****.
You know what's scary? Die hard.
Yeah, that's another thing.
But then again to he can't guard nobody.
Yeah, Coalition opt out.
So that whole clippers all that crap they did, could just that could just crumble by next year.
Next, right back into the whole day with before where they don't have no pitch, no pics.
You did all that for Paul, George.
Not if you could swing Paul George Brown.
I would do that because, Well, I mean, you're not the same side for George was eight.
Whatever it is, you have a six street guard.
And what a guy who score from the guard position in verse supporters to score from the poor position.
What would you guys got a brown in that backcourt or poor Georgia? That front court, Or I guess the 34 everyone. A quote.
I still I still say Paul, George, I still take Paul. George.
I'm not looking at what he did. What he did.
Just e still think pulled all the super talented Bradley go.
Nobody will pandemic piece.
So what? Hey was home and who he was Horrible between Who? Fall Georgia on Brownsville trade.
Well, if I'm cool Hi.
I'm going to take care of the deal with me.
On that team that they have now just taking a You know, William is not gonna be there now.
He ain't gonna be because his e don't know Bevel.
He's gonna be there.
That's why they're gonna trade.
Paul Jones is a lot of stuff going on with him.
And he had the off the course stuff with the women and whatever is kind of like, you know, But that was a few like that, bro e.
You just don't know.
But then, but yeah, but then you see how he's been acting on the court.
You know, the stuff that he was saying that, you know, brought them boys didn't wanna be in the bubble, That's what Itwas they don't wanna be in a bubble.
They didn't wanna be there.
They played like it.
They that sow replayed like it.
You you saw that the Westbrook was also affected with the bubble, you know, because you know, if he would back up, you know, as, ah you know, a second guy on the rockets.
That would be, you know, it was LeBron.
James was pandering for this because he knew he could take advantage of it.
Hate that, dude.
Yeah, I hate that dude. something.
E way from LeBron James because you have so many people who are angry with this, you know so called stances and stuff like that.
He's messing up the league, bro.
I mean, thinking about money, you're just trying to be great.
No way will draft the play.
I have to worry about them leaving.
We are paranoid.
You drive the part, you gotta worry about him leaving already.
LeBron did that.
You know, God of Moses asked.
Frankly, Latino or dentist during 27.
Pick to Phoenix for 10.
I don't get that pick e Trade Smith E.
You know, bringing on over it.
Thank you. We don't hang up.
That's not enough. Valuable.
Like as Knick fans.
We got to start doing way.
Put way too much value on our bun ass players, man.
Like if we asked, other people are asking on a fan.
I wish some other people here we could ask freaking marquees Walker because he's a Laker fan.
I said, What do you feel about Dennis Jr or Friendly Kid? You'd be like who? Like those bums way Look, eyes, lovable losers.
We gotta get out because I was in that I was almost in that with friendly.
That's why now when people tell me about friendly kids, but I like the guy.
But I can't make excuses say, Oh, if you get the perfect coaching and the persons like that, you're either good or you're not.
And I Let's say you can't improve a better coaching, but you gotta show me a decent floor that says Okay, it's not a way to provide this for me, right? This one.
If you're not talking about RJ Argent self starter and people say, Oh is efficiencies.
But I bought. Fair enough.
When you see the ability, you see the assertiveness you see, you see the driving him right? There's at least a floor.
I can say Okay, work with R J.
Bad With this, he may not be able to do this and this and this, but at least he gives me this and we could work on trying to add this Frank.
I'm not sure what the hell like hey has become a better three point shooter, but he has an exhibit that yet right? I mean, he's had the opportunity to do so.
Same thing with Jake. Here's Jamie is the Geely.
She Oh, I mean, all of our young guys need to d league they then they should have been a any life coaches and all Sooner way screwed that thing up the development.
We should have gotten into the Julich sooner.
Well, now it's like and it was too late now, produced on the Pistons.
And you know, I mean, keep a phone by.
I make some Christians because it's just that one year was an explosion.
And he's doing on a team where they really had no direction.
They're hiding culture.
This is E Christian works.
I don't think you don't test the free agency. You don't wanna pay by Detroit.
They have nothing.
You gotta keep what they can keep.
Yeah, buddy, Mac makes a good point.
No one says you wanna get Anthony better.
What is Anthony Bennett doing right now? I don't know.
It's pretty like a firefighter in Cleveland right now.
Something that could be man.
I had been one of the worst drafts outside of Yannis and I was people Who else was in that draft? Yeah, we don't care.
Yeah, there was a statistic, Guillermo.
There was a statistic, I think, Alan, how pulled it out That the last, like, seven or eight years in the top 10 there were, like, only one or two all stars.
There were, You know, we're, like, you know, are off the, you know, lower than the 10 pick.
This is I'm actually scared.
What the next do? Because oh, we got a It's like, Okay, so the the sons are gonna take a partner like him.
So any of the teams possible? Teams that need a point guard the wolves with a nod.
They're gonna take a melon while the trade for the Westbrook.
The Bulls? That while they trade for Westbrook Pistons Don't see him again.
Westbrook, I'm just trying to think, like, because we legit need some type of point guard developments with some upside or a point guard, right? They'll take.
They're gonna take Killian Hayes if he drops.
Because Charlotte, you know, Jordan seems to watch Westbrook on on the roster because of Jordan.
They I've always I've always had they even before I was, I wasn't thinking.
I'm gonna take a point guard, but they can They get west work now? Now? Now, if the first two teams in the world take, uh, Anthony Edwards and the capital of the Warriors take either Wiseman or Kombu and the Hornets do get Westbrook right now.
The Bulls was the Bulls.
Hawkes, Hawkes outfit.
Whose? That Sorry. The Hawks at six.
Who's that fit again? Uh, Cavaliers, Cavaliers, Cattle? A.
Coral caverns are very high in the coral.
Hey, stop being on top on top because they want to move off.
Wow, I didn't even know that.
So and so you have at four.
You got the boot.
They might take Denny, right? You take a Denny.
I'm just trying to think.
And then maybe the hawks they don't need They don't need a point guard in the mode of like Achillion.
Right? So e will be because they needed I don't see them bringing the point guard as a free agent.
Um, yeah, I'm sorry.
I think anyway, like would they take? Would they take it with the pistons, take with a Pisces taken Obi Topman or even or even a Wiseman if he dropped to say Yeah, yeah, I'm even hearing the oh, those eyes crazy, man.
I'm hearing the trick.
They promised Patrick Southern **** when you said Detroit might do what? Patrick Williams e think Patrick Williams A smokescreen.
And I'm telling you something doesn't make. I know. I'm telling.
I did not see Patrick Williams until late.
Well, I don't see it with it, man.
But how did how did these guys go up the draft without any games being played? That's why I don't understand.
They're going up the standings, and it's like they smoked meat.
Man speaks well, Yeah, yeah.
But I think that they I think they'll try to get the Westbrook even before the draft starts.
I think next two days might tell you.
So I'm just trying to think of how a killing his could fall and if the Pistons would take Ah bonafide.
Because if Wiseman falls somehow, I think the Pistons might be like screw up.
We got rid of drumming.
We got I mean, Blake Griffin's on his way out.
He was injured every year, uh, tried developing for the next 2 to 3 years.
Um, so I could definitely see that.
But over Achillion hes e.
It's typical type of point guard. Not really.
Right? Tom Thibodeau likes Yeah, he's not really athletic.
I mean, he could dribble, but he's not the most athletic.
He needs a lot of pick and roll.
Hey, says working a shooting, Um, even those off the ball shooting was, like, 40 40% of some.
Like that almost from the three.
Was, like 40% who hate corn beef. Need to kill himself.
Started this. His dream.
So, you know, if someone wants to join, we're gonna end this dream.
Hop on on sim with him.
So, you know, I promised him we're gonna do it, so we're not gonna between each other, right? As an M b k fam way
