Yeah, You guys were all assuming that Kevin Durant still plays like he did a Golden State.
Oh, yeah, he will.
I think no one's ever come back from injury.
It was very, very rare.
Very rare that people come back the same after the Achilles injury looking Kobe Bryant.
When he tours Achilles in 2013.
He really wasn't.
Wasn't that same player? That same killer? Different z e? Yeah, Kobe was older to Kobe was like 35 years old, right? Uh huh.
How better? Example.
Dominique Wilkins, Dominique Wilkins.
Dominique Wilkins was a jumper.
He was a leaper.
Dominique came back and I was 30.
Was the exception where he played better.
Yeah, e exception.
Yeah, it's Penelope is the league's always better.
When Kevin Durant plays good, he's gonna at least average 25 like at least 25.
Is that with her? With that, with or without Harden at least 25 it doesn't matter.
At least 20 even way 20 z.
Hey, needs like 15 shots like it doesn't it doesn't take much for him.
The efficiency is not going to go away like just said 27.
Plus I'm saying at least that's the least.
I think it's a scores league now to like.
It's just they're letting offense get away with a lot like what Year and a half year and a half in in December? E to go a little bit off topic.
Josh, Josh and Lauren is who's who's also understands that a field field mileage on steel for for the Oklahoma City thunder.
Amber, Since you're a nobody with thoughts, I have no clue about three.
I have no clue, no clue about who they drafted.
Here's the French guy, right? You see French.
I have no clue who they drafted.
I know about Poco a little bit and I was like, I gotta watch some more film on YouTube because I have no clue.
They just went international, just went crazy.
They went spurs in this draft and I'm trying to figure it out.
So what's what? What what's Amber gets all the research and homework done, dude, she's gonna be She's gonna be like Brian would horse and woes with all the facts.
Just spew it out.
You know, e Sheet's wait until I get the research.
I don't have a choice, but I have to talk about on the podcast.
So I have to pronounce their names correctly because I don't wanna mess up anybody's name.
E have to look at the film and the Yoma.
Ladan? He said yes.
He is the French point guard with lots of potential.
Maybe a future Tony Parker? Yeah, that's what he was compared to.
I thought he was gonna be a first round pick this year.
Coming into like the like, probably months before the draft.
I'll do my research on them guys.
Wow, Amber, do me a favor, please.
Research on the 34 year old rookie E.
I wanna know what he is doing.
I just think this draft is gonna take a couple.
It's gonna take more than a couple of years.
We'll say I give it four years to see how it pans out. Mhm.
Yeah, but after four years, the rookie is gonna be retired.
E think he wants Thio Think he wants to be sitting in the Allstate Arena playing for the Windy City bowls? You imagine imagine, even if he turned that into a 20 year career goes to 34 to 54.
This is a robber.
E magically turned into one of the greatest Bulls players of all time.
She's a 34 year old rookie and he plays for, like, 20 years.
Like you know, this man.
It's 53 kicking it.
If that happens, that might be that might be a game changer.
And Josh also said that he didn't like the Thunder's first pick.
I didn't either.
That should have taken Maxie.
I wanted Tyreese Maxie so bad and he was e wanted Maxie so freaking bad.
Oh, my goodness.
E was before you would be all over E.
You're not afford guy in the post for it.
Hey, Ball forward to power for it.
If it ain't one of them Got to go.
What did you guys think about the Hawks? First pick on Necco Kong glue? I love them.
Surprised because a cappella there don't you think they got Clint Capela there with John Collins? I thought I was very, very interesting.
Now, John Collins.
I think is a free agent after this offseason.
So unless if Uniqlo Congo is going to replace John Collins afterwards, I was kinda surprised with that one.
I thought for sure they would have gone gone.
I think I thought they would have been with Danny and Vita or Obi Topping at like a six at the number six pick.
But you know, I mean, they got a plan.
You know, Atlanta is one of those teams where maybe if they don't like a Clint Capela experiment, they'll just move on from and put Congo at a center.
And then John says, makes me think they are invested in Capello long term.
I could definitely see that as well.
Maybe they'll run with Capello for this year, have unique Gioconda play off the bench.
And if they don't like what Capello brains, they could just trail during the off season.
Okan would just start at the center of the next.
The next year makes me think that they aren't invested in compel a long term.
That's what I was thinking.
I don't know if they're e don't know what they're doing over there.
I mean, they got they got a lot of have a lot of wings.
They got reddish hunter herder and then, uh, yeah, Like I said, I got the big go.
Now they got Capellas just weird.
So, you know, because Capellas still young too, isn't he? He's, like, 25.
Okay, so I mean, he fits Atlanta's timeline with far as his age goes, he fits what they do.
I mean, that's not too bad, but if I mean, you think Oh, Congo's upside is is better than you draft him, right? E? It was a good pitch.
It was a great on then, uh, on the truth.
How do you think cameras were doing his second season? E.
I love it better.
E a little more.
Yeah, I'm working out with curry.
That's a good sign.
Still, it's a movement on the game, but, you know, he has he has He has older all the talent thio a special player.
But, um, you know, just the same the same questions that people have.
You got drafted, you know, does He wanted a motor, all that type of stuff.
So it was really on him.
I mean, he could be that he could be the second guy after after Trey, because that's really that's really what you need.
A really good wing player.
Can't win the championship with.
Just like you took a great point guard.
Meet a wing player to make please.
If you could develop into that briefing, we're gonna be great Already.
A great defender just gotta work on his shooting.
Okay? Okay. Josh.
Undrafted market guard Marcus Howard agreed to to weigh contracts with the Denver Nuggets.
Marcus Howard making a Who are you? I'm happy.
Denver got him via trade.
Stacking up young players.
Yeah, I think so.
That's what That's what Mike Malone loves to dio. Yeah.
I had this proposal that Jerry and Grant would go to the Lakers if KCP leaves.
What's this? What's the asking price? That's the That's the question.
How much is KCP making this year? Anybody know? E p, I believe, is making, like, 10 or $12 million.
Dang Grant's gonna ask for more than that.
But then you got Danny Green's money off the books too.
So how much was Danny green making.
So you can agree.
Was making 15 million, and then you got treated.
Okay. See then from Okay.
So if you get KCP off the books green off the books, you can afford Grant, right? Go.
Yeah, I think I think I would rather have.
I think we've been kcp back.
I think what KCP did in the finals, he was He definitely stepped up big imposing, I think.
CPS or infirmed another another.
Another contract chance with the Lakers.
Yeah, he kept his.
He kept this booth? Yeah, Exactly.
I'm glad we got a first.
I'm glad we got government, Danny.
Red because or daybreak.
Eso What is? So what does Grant go? I wonder where does Grant go? Who can afford it? 17.
You think 17 18 is gonna be his asking price you think he is? Please don't send them to the next.
What did you say, C j? You might, you might.
You might go to like, a average team way might go where the money goes, But I think he's a good player, though He improves every single year.
Okay, so he was really good.
Uh, drop that, e.
I was just thinking e third power forward thinking for Zynga's can play center, though.
E you even get Grant power for or play the three Can Grant played a 32 You could have him play three.
You can Honestly Playing 3 to 5.
Yeah, Villanova University like that.
So I think that a grateful that would be grateful for Yeah, I like I like Dallas.
What about? They're also trying to free up space to get honest, So Oh, they got Josh Richardson.
Josh Richardson to is he had to Josh Richardson a two.
Yeah, Richard to you can play a so you could get Richardson and grow that defense in Dallas because they couldn't stop nobody last year.
But if you get if you get granted, you got Richardson on the wings.
Well, you could kind of cover up for what Luca does defensively.
That'll be nice.
Yeah, maybe maybe the talismanic instead of being a 60 that can bubble through a 50.
If they could stop people, they could have been a top three seed last year in the west.
They could stop somebody because they could score their high scoring team in NBA history, right? Yeah.
If they could stop somebody, they would probably be a top three seed in the West.
They just couldn't stop anybody.
But if you got Josh Richardson, what do you do with Tim Hardaway Jr and Finley Smith? I think I think you could still keep. You.
Could just have him come off the bench.
I think if you're in the Western Conference and he got a loaded bench, I think it'll be just fine.
Especially because I think the contractor after this year.
Anyways, I think Hardaway's contract is up after this year.
If I'm not mistaken, right? Yeah.
Hardaway's has done that.
So you might as well just play it out this year and then not resign him back and just be aggressive and go after you, Honest.
Okay, so who's the man? Started five right now.
Mab, starting five right now.
Probably loca the point.
OK, one Richardson, but it's got the lot right. Do right.
He comes off, he comes off the bench, so yeah, heaven.
Jail insure minutes.
It will be Luke Richardson.
Finney. Smith Uh huh.
E like Finney, Smith for singles and Power Power.
Come back over the counter Now.
If the average Jerry Grant, I think they put Grant at four, then pausing is at five.
Uh huh, because I'm sorry.
If the Mavericks wanna go far in the West, you can't have Dwight Powell be your best starting center.
That, of course, it was a great at 33 because because it's kind of like it's kind of like a D.
You don't want him playing center throughout the regular.
Throughout the regular season, I would much rather have a center in the playoffs because a play like a small ball a hey, hey would be there.
He's not a he's tall.
He's not really.
He's not a true center, a powerful.
He's just a tall off, Really, You can see Jay knows, knows, poisoning his personal because they decided to trade him for Kath Space and they got nobody way got to first six dirt.
Yeah, but he did this in 2023 when the Mavericks are competing.
I mean, for Zynga's you got you got has a injury history.
So Let's see how that plays up.
I mean, the West is gonna be a wild ride.
It ISS, especially if they're gonna have these 10 teams.
It's just gonna be It's gonna be a good team that does not make the playoffs.
It's gonna be a good team.
It does not make the place.
I've been saying that.
I've been saying it like expect.
Expect a 9 10 teams that have nearly 50 wins.
You think you think it will be like the mid? You think it was like the mid mid 2020 early 2010, where 50 win team and the last could possibly be in eight C in the 72 game season? Might be Oh, yeah, my bad, My bad, my bad.
50 games in a two game season will be 48 to 72.
Yeah, way Got some good news.
The Bulls rookie.
I miss mistyped his name.
He's actually only 21.
He's not 30 four were fine E that they drafted 2044.
He's even That's like a 13 year miss.
Well, I typed the letter M one too many times in his last name.
Okay, so Josh said the blazers with Rocco gonna be dangerous, Especially they bring back Mellow, which I think they're gonna resign.
Mellow and Hood Hood declined his option.
Still 1/7 or eighth.
See, I think they're probably gonna be a top five seat with play out.
Somebody has to replace Golden State.
Right? Market is fully healthy.
Collins is fully It might just be Portland.
Thank you for staying healthy.
Well, from Portland.
Where they gonna do with Hassan Whiteside? It's all what a free agent.
Are they gonna get back, or are they just gonna say, get rid of that dude? E o white, over White side.
With that one, the whites a champ.
So I want to champion the off season.
You can't take that ring away from Dwight Howard.
That's one thing you can say.
You cannot take your ring away.
I think I think that ring submits Dwight Howard were holiday career.
She tried to e o.
If anything, gold old days we went.
But when shopping booth Golden Days every week on shocking, you expected them to be in there at least once.
But I I like what? What Portland has.
I like what they have they need, but they need a They need a guy like Like how? Makesem bigs That can shoot.
Because markets nurkic should not.
It's not a great in protected.
So they could They could slide into the oh, they found for the 40 once in a while.
Put writer, man.
Yeah, well, code I was a e.
I don't know what they like doing.
Like they had a reason.
They traded the reason The Piston a Piston will probably buy him out or something like that.
And then he'll probably be a free agent.
I don't see him staying in Detroit.
They wanna be young, attracted all these young players.
Contender should try to get you a net.
Maybe I would love to see a reason back on the back of the Lakers.
A little reunion.
The Lakers. I love him.
What about what about Miami? Wait, Nick.
Nick, aren't you a big Miami Miami fan? Are are you a war sanded Borda? Yeah, well, no, I'm I'm a worst fan. I mean, I like Miami.
I mean, I was saying all last year.
Miami was probably like the most underrated team, but well, yeah, I mean, I mostly golden state over here.
What? You what you think of, Clay? Wait a minute.
Well, then why don't you have hope for your team? If you said your team would barely might miss the playoffs just without Clay Thompson.
But you have a You have a little home or is, um, and how he's out season? Yeah, that it pleases.
I love Steph, man.
But Steph, Stephanie's Clay, Stephanie's clay These a lot of they say that they will not admit that I got a question in the comments.
Grizzlies got a shot at making the playoffs this year.
Yeah, they definitely have a chance.
Especially Especially if they keep on playing made any last year.
Like if we're being honest, If there wasn't, there wasn't a pandemic that was going on.
The prisoners went out a very good change and making the playoffs as at eight c.
But you know, when you got in the bubble in the plane, turning employment just wanted it more.
Actually, there was a full season.
They got healthy.
Portland got healthy, so you would take grizzly Better chop in Minnesota.
Oh, yes, yes, I would.
I would take the Grizzlies having a better shot instead of, uh, Minnesota.
I feel like Minnesota is one of those where I don't really believe in the coach.
I don't know what is.
Their coach was like Ryan Saunders or something.
Yeah, you guys write in Sanders.
I think it's Saunders.
I mean, I mean, he's okay, but I mean, the temporal table I e.
They started off great.
They want a hot start, and then they decided Toe is a long way.
Now if I actually get those, too.
I said the pelicans, especially with Stan Van Gundy at the helm stand.
Being a veteran coach is the magic to the finals.
And, 09 He's got a good track record now.
As GM. He's terrible.
A za head coach.
His time in Miami was solid e, even though he was fired in 06 they went on to win the championship that year, he took Dwight Howard 09 Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals, which everybody thought that you were gonna be Kobe verse brought.
But he let Dwight Howard keep Superman to the MBA finals.
And then on top of that, I mean, he was.
He was pretty consistent in Orlando, and then on top of that, when he was a coach in Detroit, he consistently 11 to the blouse.
Or just when he got in the GF who makes us well, that was kind of his downfall.
But I think in the head coach much rather trust the Pelicans, especially with all the young players that they have a friend in Germany.
Most improved player Zion Williamson is gonna be fully healthy already.
Got a young, loaded roster.
I'm just excited to see what the pelicans air to do.
Full, fully healthy.
And I hope that gives Islands in free range.
I I don't want to see any limit restrictions from Zion.
I want to see him full out 30 40 minutes a game.
I want to see that.
I want to see that Zion Williamson and I want to see what Stan Van Gundy couldn't do because his head coaching track record is pretty successful.
I mean, he's consistently a good as a head coach.
Do what you can do in New Orleans.
Do you guys have any step predictions for his eye on this year.
I'm gonna say 21 Game 26 9.
I was gonna say, 22 8.
I'm a little lower.
I'm going with my because this is going to be his first full season started.
I think you'll start off slow a little bit, I'd say in his third year.
That's when we could see an M V P Break out.
How many minutes will you play? I'll say, I say, because I mean, he came off the meniscus and average.
I mean, it was it was only 20 games, but 24.
Plus, you gotta be 35 minutes, 30 plus minutes.
He's He's averaging 20/25 e Well, he used the franchise player.
Franchise players averaged 30 plus minutes a game.
Okay, does he who's leading score for the Pelicans next year? Brandon Ingram are Zion Williamson.
E would think, I would say I think it's close, though I think maybe by, like, appointed to I think I probably say because he's unguardable.
I mean, okay, stand guard.
What? What about you, Lamar? What do you think? Do you think it'll be running numbers, Williams and I'll be scoring.
E don't know what kind of shape is.
I got to see what kind of shape is on their first fee and shape.
I'm gonna say it.
But if he out there huffing and puffing in the fourth quarter e getting together a conditional eyes, it's the first offseason when he's able to train, not rehab.
On And Josh makes a good point as well.
Both averaged 22 plus points.
E think Zion gets this 22.
Yeah, they're both gonna They're both gonna put up, you know, e that third man for key E.
I love Jackson Haze.
Jackson, Hamza, Texas.
He's like he's like types.
He reminds me of Tyson Chandler a lot.
It needs to be zone the third piece because that was just not aggressive enough on offense.
He's just not aggressive.
No, but he's not even even days with the Lakers.
He just wasn't wasn't aggressive kind of guy.
He could pass you basketball the problem to resolve the problem, but because JJ Red**** that something with me because I coming back.
So I don't think I think it's price tag is too high.
They JJ Red****.
I can't talk JJ Red**** Price tag is too high, so we're gonna say, Nick, I'm sorry, my favorite Alonso's I mean, Lonzo is just so talented.
I feel like I feel like he could be like that third man.
But, like you said, he's just not aggressive enough.
But he doesn't look too make plays on his own.
He really just likes to throw throw the ball out.
And that's just my thing.
Like if he wanted to become more assertive, he could be like around like a 15 in game score if he really wanted to.
I mean, his jump shot is improving.
He has great athleticism, like like that's the thing, like, I don't see why not.
But it's really all about him being in attack mode.
It wanted to really, really be in that type of like mindset that really score E o hey is he is frightening the free throw line.
He's like, Oh, no, a point guard that's bad.
That's a the shoulder thing where he would just like e fix it.
But is it like that? That when he first had it like that That free throw shots? E mean Uh huh.
How are we feeling about Romelo As we'll see Levar Michael Jordan.
Oh, yeah, I wanna I wanna see that.
I wanna I wanna see a love rmd and meet each other in person.
I want to see that I can't wait e I want to see the mellow take on Lonzo this year.
E I'll see that Lamela's winning that match up.
He is, But I want to see it.
What about what about you, Lamar.
What? What? What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing the barber's MJ? Yeah, I'm looking forward to because I know Jordan.
We're asking about it.
You got the two competitive? Not Thio, bro.
That would blow Twitter up personal.
They would blow Twitter up if they went Twitter live with that one on one game.
Do you know how hot Twitter would be? Oh, i e that there would be 20 plus million views if there was a live RVers NJ one on one on Twitter e.
They might have to put on ESPN for that, they might have to get, like, a one hour special.
Or were you gonna ball kid the barbell on his kids? Michael Brown.
And you might have yourself a good good file on five Matchup for three hours way Just need levar.
But we just need LeVar versus versus Michael because Michael's kids are not very good.
E think Lamela's gonna be a star? You gotta work on his shooting in defense.
But he's a great playmaker.
You know what? In the n b a.
You gotta be in a place, some kind of defense, because you'll get exposed.
Yeah, especially with the scoring.
Nowadays, we've got to play some kind of defense just a little bit.
Just a little bit right.
Who is their coach? Oh, goodness.
Who is the Hornets coach? Think Amber.
Think I don't even know? I don't know.
Yeah, uh, offered Steve Clifford Clifford? Or is it Clifford or something like that? No.
Clifford know Clifford Orlando, It's a new guy.
This is how much they don't. Come on, James.
James Borrego! Geo! Wow! Go E.
I like I like the hornets.
I mean, they got they got some follow pieces.
I mean, bridges.
We're just gonna make that next step.
You can make that next step put the Monte Graham.
Yeah, E Oh, I'm excited.
I'm excited about him.
He's probably e don't know if he might start, but if he doesn't start, I see him closing for the E.
I'm out there in the fourth quarter.
He's either bucket man.
I mean, he's that elevation he took from the first year of the second year is crazy.
That shows you what hard work and do for you.
I have to Google. Yeah, I forgot.
Yeah, that's yeah, but, I mean, you can in this in this MBA, you could still play second fiddle. On average, 25.
The weather of scoring these days just depends e p j.
Washington's gonna take that next step.
Thinking of Lou.
Will you guys think the clippers to get rid of him? Probably.
Uh, Do you think the Clippers will probably get rid of Louisville? I know he's been on the trade trading bloc to get younger.
You gotta do a blue.
So who would be that replacement? Yes.
What? I'm thinking um I know.
I saw a trade where they were thinking about getting rid of little.
Well, they were trying to package him.
Who are they trying to get, Rondo or something like that? I thought I'm crazy.
Blue will for Rondo.
Why does that not sound good? Only the score.
Yeah, The bench.
Yeah. You should try to get one of them.
One of the wings in Atlanta.
That's what I said.
They can't make a living.
It was kind of silent.
I thought about it. Get good from wives on that.
Cooper is better.
Get a good return.
Team Josh, we've been a team with all George Carlin, and yet they 31 lead to the Denver Nuggets.
Lights get right, boy, You don't know what You don't know what Paul.
George, you're gonna get Yeah, you're gonna get panned entity or push off your way off the or.
Oh, e Mean, I was looking for the O I c p i waas like not ****y p but bubble p e know what I'm saying? I'm saying bubble P, I got a little bit of bubble p.
You know, Not very much, but you just don't.
You didn't expect that.
That just stink bomb from Kwai either.
He didn't play well at all.
And you don't expect that from him.
Especially with it being a quiet guy he's got He's gotta leave them on the floor.
He can't be bad on the court and not leave.
Like, if you're gonna be quiet on the floor, you better **** well scored 2030 points a night.
You know that? You most Yeah.
Need a full general.
We need to play my job.
Yeah, they dio they definitely need a full of general.
So who do they go get? How did I get e? Only Rondo.
Rondo needs to be there.
E Randall says I would hate from the Open the Lakers Clippers From a team perspective, it makes a lot of sense for the Clippers to go get Rondo, especially with how good of a floor general.
He is like a lot of time playoff.
Rondo is a real thing way.
We saw it last year in the playoffs playoff.
Rondo is the real deal.
It don't win that title without Rondo period way.
Some of the championship. It just would call the way.
No, you don't win that.
You don't win that title without Rondo. I'm sorry, Donna.
Bald out game too.
So you do not picking LeBron break.
You give you give LeBron a break from he doesn't have to play.
Make Ferrando actor.
He could just chill.
He was like he was that he was like the third best.
Yeah, find a good argument for for the third best argument as well.
I'm just saying like it was brought a d and then a close 3rd and 4th between Rondo and a C p for that playoff room.
Rondo's It's more not just what you do on the course.
Man, the film stuff that stuff like they say He out there calling all of the team players while they running e I don't know what they running and all that matters.
Yeah, I don't know Something.
That's what That's what the Clippers e that because without Rondo, if Ronald doesn't come back from an injury, the Lakers are not winning the finals.
I don't think because it puts too much on LeBron and they were playing every other day, too.
They were playing every other day, so yeah, Rondo, they gotta try to keep Brown.
Yeah, he declined his option of keeping it.
Find out tomorrow e o decline.
And then Josh says one of the best option out there.
Lakers not resigning after getting Schroeder and then Randall for sure.
I think it's gonna be interesting now that we do have Dennis Schroder how we approach the point guard situation, but keep e But you got all screwed.
So still there, too.
So the headband legend.
So you probably have to move on from May.
Depends on with a d and LeBron Say yeah, we Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Rondo keeping Rondo.
Yeah, And if he and if they said they wanted to white back, they're gonna pay Dwight his money.
Hey, if they even want Chief Keef Morris.
Hey, Played well.
He played very well for the Lakers.
E thought he played way.
Got the better twin way people keeping keep.
I thought that would be a Cool Inc chief.
Kids probably cast my playlist knocking a lot.
Yeah, uh was Sosa love the social championship Eso.
How much money does Dwight Howard want? I wonder.
I know we brought this up before, but I wonder how much he wants.
Like, seven million.
Eight million a year? Maybe that's what I'm thinking.
I would say, Yeah, probably around eight million.
We'll do the Lakers pay him eight me.
E think that? I think so.
They should they Should they should they should.
They should sign.
They should sign Ethan up to be the Lakers GM.
You'd be a certain dealer, Alright? Like that.
So I could do with six million.
You want you want eight? Think about it.
But six is You are.
I don't know if we ask this, but who Who's your, uh, you guys thinking, when Rookie of the year this class e is like a car? How's your car? Okay, okay.
Out of this rookie class.
It's a tough one, but I don't see Yeah, it's tough to call.
I have to say Anthony Edwards.
I think I think Anthony Edwards in Minnesota, I think it's gonna be an exciting fit.
I can't wait to see how he plays with the Andrew Russell in Karlovy House, because my honest opinion.
I think Anthony Edwards instantly goes to Bolton.
Out of state goes toe.
Minnesota has that number three option.
I think I think he'll be.
I think he'll be the number three guy after Karl Anthony Towns.
Deandra, Russell anti.
Edwards instantly goes in as the number three guy.
I think because of the big role that he plays, he'll he'll be rookie of the year.
I think that s so It's probably best spot for him to go. Thio.
I think James Wiseman will have.
They will have the winds and he'll have the numbers very true, Especially without Clay he's gonna have.
They're gonna have the winds and Golden State and he's gonna have the numbers.
So he's gonna get more touches.
Melo gets Charlotte to the playoffs, Uh, zero.
Take Charlotte to the playoffs.
I think you've got to consider it a That's what about what about Killian Hayes in Detroit? Does he have enough around him toe have the numbers to get? He doesn't score enough? Yeah, Didn't we already trade that Blake Griffin contract? So I'd say, Yeah, because nobody wants that contract.
He's expensive, but like name, name the A team that wants that Blake Griffin contract? Nobody, especially after this year.
$3 player option.
And there ain't no way Blake Griffin declining a $38 million option with no chance.
What's gonna happen? Andre Drummond got his.
He didn't decline his contract, either.
He he wanted his money.
He stayed in Cleveland.
Nick, I think I brought this up to you before I thought a possible tragedy before the draft second pick and Andrew Wiggins for the fifth pick and Andre Drummond that went so wise when they got like Super Wiseman, they got Andre Drummond, who could get four offensive rebounds, 15 and 15.
And then they get rid of Andrew Wiggins this contract, and then they could take a core.
Oh, who's a defensive beast? And then, as for Cleveland, they get to take Wiseman so they have a young prospects to develop.
And then they have Wiggins, who is also relatively young and can put up 20 points again.
One thing I did do we did, uh, did unwrapped, locked, locked up the crap and even I had I had the Warriors and I actually made a trade with the Bulls I traded.
I actually traded the second pick and everyone against to the Bulls for the fourth pick and, uh, Otto Porter, as well as the top three protective pick in 2021.
So I think you would have loved that trade at the Bulls fan.
And I think that would have been a win win on both sides.
Don't like injury.
Williams this contract.
I think I'll take off for one year.
That's why that's why I got Wiggins contract.
Who's the balls? Yeah, I would rather I'd rather Jason Smith.
All right, let me I'll talk with him tomorrow.
Still on contract.
Is your veil McGee still on contract? No.
He's a free agent after this year as well.
So it's kind of I wanna kind of pick and choose you.
It's kind of the same thing with the white will offer him a contract, maybe $68 million.
And if he accepts it? Great.
If not, then we'll something so elsewhere.
I mean, we'll probably have to make a pitch, you know, it's like a man we just wanna chip.
Do you want some or do you want some more chips to go with a dip or, you know, you wanna go to the involvement.
Well, perhaps I don't know how to win.
No choice is yours.
Do you want to help us get better? 18 or not? No.
Do you wanna be with King James or or some other or some other players? E hey, could go help the Celtics getting number 18.
Oh, we don't want that.
We don't know about the Boston Celtics.
We don't We don't want that.
I mean, the next.
Then him go to the Celtics.
You like? Her fans are so spoiled.
You guys just spoiled.
How you that spoiled, uh, Howard Thio.
That's what he's saying.
If Dwight Howard goes to the Celtics that that would be a huge win for the Celtics.
E could find a way to get think about a way to get Dwight Howard.
That would be huge for them. E.
Yeah, they was any center e because if we're being honest, the Celtics had a had a legit center.
They probably could have beat the heat if they had if they had a real center.
Besides Daniel, Thais and and it's cancer But if they would have made a move and got Steven Adams, I think they could have made to the NBA Finals.
If the Celtics would've made a move and then a great, that's why I wanted them. Thio.
I think I think we could have got gone to the finals even last year.
I think we could have got our lake.
Your Celtics finals e think that happens this year? Do I think it happens this year? I don't know.
I mean, I like the Lakers chances, but I mean, it's very it's very hard to repeat as n b A champions.
No, I mean, I mean, unless if you're, you know, unless you have great players.
But, you know, it's very it's very hard to win multiple championships back to back.
And then on top of that, when you got a loaded Western cop about, we were talking at the Lakers on the one seed.
They could potentially play a Denver, Golden State or Utah in the second round.
That's gonna be a tough second round.
Siri's for who like No, I'm saying if the Lakers get the one seed and make it past the first round, we have a team like a even in Portland, if Trailblazers air fully healthy like they could be a team to look out for.
I mean the things that, like thing is, none of those one of those one of those thieves todo LeBron e, I always maintained, maintained high hopes on that.
But you know, I mean, they're still going to competitive.
I think this time around next year won't be as easy for the Lakers to get e way We cruised through the Western Conference like that was like Like like I was excited that we won the championship.
But I wasn't like, super ecstatic because I knew Ribbon won the championship and the way how we breathe through the Western Conference like Beat the Blazers and five beat the Rockets and five beat the Nuggets of five.
Like, Oh, say, you know, we're in the NBA Finals, you know, if that's expected and then when? When we wanted all those fantastic, you know, I was super happy, but it's like, Hey, one banner 17.
But, you know, we kind of going into the bubble that we were pretty much gonna be a championship team like we're gonna win the ship.
The team that would give us the competition was the Clippers and the Clippers decided to implode in the second round instead of us.
That's what Amber said.
Lakers fans are spoiled.
Yes, exactly, I guess, I guess.
I guess that proves the case right there.
But that's a very spoilt the Lakers Lakers Air destination people wanna be.
They love to be a part of the history.
I mean, the Showtime Lakers, the seventies and eighties Kobe share back al LeBron a d.
It helps that you're in L.
A to your in LA LA.
Smith says, You're in LA la people who wouldn't want to go to L. A. I mean the Texas.
There are something else I don't actually live in.
I live in Texas right now.
I just moved recently to Texas about like nothing.
I've been in Texas for a little bit, but definitely still have some.
So some California blend stuff as we know I have Dodgers will sue championship half.
So I was definitely super excited that definitely love City of Champions zealot.
Definitely love that.
As a Cubs fan, I'm happy with my one in 108.
I'm happy with my one world serious.
Hey, I'm just happy we didn't We didn't choke in the playoffs because being the Dodger fan the last the last seven plus years, seeing your team when the division and continuously chosen the playoffs is very hard to do.
It is very hard to watch now.
There are some instances where we didn't have.
Like when we play the Cubs in 2016 in the NLCS, I kind of knew like, Yeah, this comes as a destiny squad this like like like they're destined to go far.
I mean, I'm just impressed.
We pushed up to six games, but, you know, that was that was once you know what, That finally ended their 108 year drought.
I'm going next year and be you blithe Raptors how to run the Raptors.
What is Serge Ibaka do? Guys? Serge Ibaka has been in a lot of talks here lately.
Serge Ibaka, you.
He's a guy where I think I think the team is gonna loan over pay for search.
I feel like I feel like what you baka brings to the table like if Ibaka confined his way to the Boston Celtics, Boston Celtics could be up there in the Eastern Conference on winning.
Even in the championship conversation, I was seeing nets.
I saw Lakers, um, or if he Ibaka somehow manages to go to the Lakers, I'm gonna be spoiled and say we need because if we can find a way toe kids Sergio Baca contract, You might You might as well keep the Larry O'Brien in l.
You see anybody else? You guys, You guys want everybody? You sure? Yeah. Yeah.
Everybody is like your fans, man.
L a everybody man. Jordan.
You guys want the old spot? But the thing about had no chance, way have never got Jordan or Prime d Rose that that would've never happened.
That's the thing about it.
Is how do you replace Marc Gasol? If you're the Raptors, what do you do? Because he was finishing Spain? E think I think you really have to prioritize bringing back surge.
Hope their starting five now, though.
Yeah, I can play the four.
Yeah, we all complain before you got Lowry.
Uh, shoot our didn't they have Terrance Davis at shooting guards? Now we have friends that have friends forever.
Fleet played too.
They had bred played too small board.
They had O G and O B ****y P Will point was power forward.
Yeah, uh, center that was those castles does your center.
It was Gasol back at the one to, uh So how do you replace me? Oh, yeah.
Bushehr, Get more minutes to the O.
Shea was insane in the D League e.
Do you Do you think Toronto goes after Hassan Whiteside? I could see it.
How much money does HASA? How much money does he want? 15 or less, I think, at their starting center.
I mean, he fits what they do.
I mean, he's a great rim protector.
He just offense.
It's just it's I saw offensive trash.
I have is my new Jersey in my closet.
But he played well for Portland last year like he actually played well.
But for the money that he want it, I just don't.
The money and the production just didn't match for me.
He got he got his MBA, took a writing up.
Hey, did e like him? I'm done.
I'm done with you.
Okay, I'm done with, man.
I'm done with all of e and two kids Bs.
So no PS five for any of you guys.
Anybody get a PS five? Anybody? I'm moving a I'm on alert right now trying to see oh, e J C J If you had to choose between the PS five or your next fandom What? What would you choose right now? Right now, I'm trying to get the five e That s o s.
Soldiers sold for P o box.
Crazy about Thio.
I'm happy playing into double A 14 of their You betrayed dolar e c j didn't betrayed Dolan.
Dolan betrayed him.
Don't don't betrayed CJ by putting that trash out in the bargain like they're disrespecting Madison Square Garden by putting the kind of trash roster the Knicks got up there with all those forwards.
How's New York part that every time powders New York end up with all trash teams? Like besides the Yankees? What? What good is there in New York? I mean, the rangers have a bright future Buffalo bills.
No one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills.
Well, in the Buffalo.
But there's only a buffalo, New York.
That's like a whole different spectrum.
What A but the Giants and Giants and the Jets playing in the middle lands I play in New Jersey.
So what are you trying to say? That that z jerseys trashy? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You want? Thanks, CJ, for that hat you got on a L A l a turned the Dodgers into actual champion powerhouses.
What do you mean, Brooklyn? Nine to.
But we won five in L A 1956.
Sandy Koufax, 54 54.
Because besides that, I mean the next or the Knicks, the Nets, You know, like Billy King.
The letter to the king with that whole trade trade fiasco.
Obviously, they're gonna come up now, but people do not want to forget the Billy King trade.
Uh, let's see, Buffalo Bills were pretty much terrible from 1999 2017.
I mean, it hasn't been good.
I mean, even the Mets, the Mets are met, and I mean, I was just like the policy for P E.
D s again, and you know, you know, but but the message that they did get a new owner and Steve and Steve Cohen.
Maybe you could use that 24 million to get like, you gonna make you over? You know, Francisco Indoor.
Maybe the Mets are on the upswing, but yeah, right now, New York sports are not good.
Uh, that would be good.
Suffering the net to be good, though.
That'll give something z good that it'll be internationally good.
But like volunteers, mats on logic, That's Brooklyn.
That's not New York City.
Okay, it's a borough.
Okay, so it counts, Right? All the boroughs count, but it just has the history but history of sucking the history of gang a draft rig for them to take Patrick you in? Yeah.
And then even then, ever since then, they really haven't hit on any of the draft picks.
How did we get here, man? Oh, E Oh, my God.
Way e e was the Timberwolves that had two picks and whipped on curry.
I was gonna say you could take back a whole lot with knicks.
Like the Knicks had a chance to get LeBron and D Wade Instead, they got an injury building tomorrow Starfire and basically got Carmelo Anthony too early.
They didn't have to trade those prospects to get mellow when they couldn't decided with the opposite.
We've been with on Curry curry.
Wanna pick before the next? Okay, my bad.
Well, you still I think you still with a traffic.
Anyway, Stephen A still talked about that.
To look about it like Like like that was the fact.
Like it was a fact. Like, Come on, bro.
And then now I will say you did have some good years from 2011 and 2013.
You made those playoffs a couple of years.
You fired your coach.
What? That fired, Fired? Like, what's for no reason.
And now you've been pretty much ba*****t dwellers ever since then, basically, welders, Souto dwellers do that.
Even rock bottom.
James James Dolan.
Least give it up.
Yeah, And just when you think the promises going up, you drafted once in a generation unicorn and for Zynga's and you decide to tell now we're gonna trade him out here, we're gonna get some cash space between you get Zion.
We're gonna get Kati Regan Kyrie.
We need a whole big three Madison Square Garden will be bumping and you got You sound like a very Bobby Portis.
To be fair, I don't really think the Mavericks one that trade without forcing, is playing healthy about your either side wins that deal.
Yeah, because you need to see you couldn't have a better. Often they have.
Right now, you could have foreseen it's an R J.
Barrett, and that would be a good 12 punch of future.
You have a bright spot, Mitchell Robinson.
I will say that you got a, you know, probably a way as well.
I e longest longest, Tom Thibodeau's and play him 49 minutes a game.
I'm being sarcastic as long as he doesn't pay to play in 49 minutes a game.
You got a bright spot there, Mr Roberts.
I'm just ever if they play a lot of if they play a lot over 49 minutes, that's going on.
Yeah, ever even probably doesn't want to hear the name Tom Thibodeau.
He'll probably get PTSD.
Just get PTSD every time, he thinks, because there there's a he's like, No, I just had therapy three weeks ago about this.
I just got over. I got back to therapy.
I got my Joakim Noah like her kind jersey in there.
Well, like that.
That many Del Negro year with Ben Gordon and Tyrus Thomas.
Yeah, you know, when they went seven games with the Celtics, you remember? Remember when the bulls made to the conference finals against the Heat when they had, like, a Hamilton Kyle Korver D Rose Boozer Noah I hated with a passion.
I hated Boozer with a passion he would fallow any game I want to.
I think I've been to, like, 70 ish bulls games 80 or something like that.
Boozer fouled out or came close to an almost every game I went to.
I saw Well, maybe Well, maybe you were his curse.
But you got Boozer that got Boozer in his down years.
You know you got Boozer.
You didn't get Utah jazz Boozer, you got You got the first accidentally touching the ref.
Yeah, but then when I went to the first wants his face Pau Gasol game.
He's got his career high with the Bulls in 36 points with hey, was But he still had that one good game with 36 points and half court shop, so I'll take power.
I think he is certainly a you like the league retired of.
There's one thing I would much how There's one thing I will say.
Pau Gasol needs to get his number retired in Staples Center without Pau Gasol.
Kobe doesn't win those two championships, and and and Kobe and Pal stay together, even through those those down years.
So, And especially what Powers met after the Kobe Bryant death, maybe even stated that himself.
Yeah, I think I I think I think that deserves is division number to get retired.
And it's not like he was only there with the Lakers.
Like I think he thought he was there for, like, 67 years. Like he was.
He was there a while.
Alright, man, as the Lakers fan, does LeBron deserve to get his jersey retired in Staples Center after he's got, he's got, he's got get five and six.
If he adds another one, I consider it.
But with one with one championship, it's like, yeah, you want to chip to be a part of the Lakers jersey retirement.
You gotta like mean a lot to the France.
You gotta make a huge impact.
He saved your friendships.
Like to the franchise.
Like you get one championship.
Great job championship.
Congratulations, You other champion.
Before you got there, he really did save your franchise there for a little bit.
He did say the franchise.
One thing I will say, if he goes back to back or even three peats, I'd say you have to put his number up there.
No question about it.
Yeah, I think I think with one e I think you consider it, but not necessarily put it up there.
But if he gets two or three, then that's block.
You gotta You gotta put it up there as a Bulls fan.
I hope he only gets five.
Or even if he does get six, I'm happy with it.
Jordan still undefeated.
Hey, only made that one.
I'm not getting a video.
What's the hot take? Okay.
Like if in the future, let's say if 80 does no, like, open like for, like years beyond.
Like if 80 like, remains a Laker for, like the next, like probably 8.
Do you all see him being like all time great and getting history is retired off course.
I see Anthony Davis possibly winning.
He's already got one now.
I could see Anthony Davis in the future, winning at least pretty more.
I'd say I'd say, Why not? I think if a Deacon get three more championships have and and his career with the Lakers and get four rings potentially be up there and one of the greatest power force of all time.
I say you've got to get his number retired up there.
How does he get three more, though? So you you think he could do it without LeBron? I think I think it could.
This is the Lakers, Amber.
They always find a way to get another duo.
What? What? What? Once LeBron retires, you know, they'll probably sweet talk their way.
I mean, look at look at the draft prospects now.
Hey, if they don't win in New Orleans, Hey, I don't know the player.
Then he goes to New York.
It was recruiting five years from now.
Hey, don't Don't think the Lakers will try it again.
I mean, they'll they'll always find a way way would help get get superstar players.
Even if they have a drought of five or six years, they don't make the playoffs.
Don't find a way to get a star.
My hope Lonzo comes back to you guys and lead you guys to a championship.
I really did, although that that'd be great. Great.
Great Plaza Lonzo.
You wouldn't hear the end of it from the bar booth at the end of it.
From the bar booth, Lonzo beats a mellow in the 2026 finals.
Well, he's like, Hey, don't think all those thunder in 2026.
All those draft picks. Bryony James.
Hey, don't be there will be sleeping on those Oklahoma City Thunder By the time 2026 comes around here, there will be rolling through the Western Conference.
They gonna be winning four straight.
There will be like the Boston self into the sixties.
Winning six straight championships Depends what the prospects looked like.
Yeah, it depends on the prospects.
Look like I mean, okay, so you could do a lot if they wanted to.
Have you seen these? It's graders nowadays, just for like I can barely touch ring on this gets dunking.
I look a lot. Yeah.
Have you seen about Mikey Williams? Dude? Yeah.
Hey, Mike Williams called in Monte Bait.
E Money way named check.
Whole grin or wave High school? Yeah, he needs to graduate.
Can we just graduate him early? Like, can we just just be there? Processor E way.
Go back to where people could get drafted once they turned 18.
Be nice because he committed to Michigan.
I want mah debates not to go to Michigan State.
I want Illinois reign over the Big 10 for years to come.
I don't like when Michigan State and Michigan get their top prospects.
Is Illinois is not getting much of it.
They, Ethan, at least is one thing you can't say.
Both their football program stink like, like, very true.
Oh, it ****es me off.
Northwestern's doing good this year.
Defeated, aren't they? Yeah, they are.
That should be a good game of Wisconsin this weekend.
I think that took Wisconsin.
What about What about Oklahoma? Oklahoma State? That's come.
Bedlam is always great.
You know, I have my Oklahoma Oklahoma State friends texting me talking trash.
What were What were your thoughts on the Red River game earlier in the season, where it went into, like, double or triple overtime and and Oklahoma got it done? We always get a defensive stop.
Like when we need a defensive stop.
We get one Baylor last year.
Um, e was back from 23 last year against Baylor.
I thought for sure Baylor was gonna blow you out.
Jalen Hurts was gonna e almost turn the TV off.
Almost turn the TV off.
And I never turn the TV off during the OU game.
And I said, You know what? I'm gonna watch Jalen.
I'm gonna watch Jalen here.
We had those turnovers in the red zone, you know, We turned the ball over, and then all of a sudden, we weren't turning the ball over and Boom, what happens? We score this like, this year when Spencer rally doesn't throw interceptions or we don't turn the ball over, we sway win.
That's the most lop started rivalry.
I think 89 wins for Oklahoma, 18 for Oklahoma State.
And then there are always little brother.
They're always little brother.
They will always be like it's like It's like the Lakers and the Clippers.
Clippers will always be the little brother.
It really is like a little brother to their face and they get upset.
The Clippers could go 82, go 16 and oh, in the playoffs.
It would still be like our city.
The Clippers got three peat, and it was to be Laker City.
The Clippers could tie the Lakers for national championships by won 17 straight and still Laker City.
Because the history Yes, it's all about history and people.
When you go to Oklahoma State, you think wrestling because they have great wrestling program in Oklahoma State.
You don't think like, yeah, they do, they dio Maybe it's just on Midwest.
I'm thinking Penn State, Iowa.
Oklahoma State has a great wrestling program.
I'll give them that and they have good engineering school as well.
I'll give them Ethan.
Since you're a Chicago guy, does that mean you like the bears? Yeah.
Hey, let me show you what? I'm a big old Packers fan here, so we got ourselves a rivalry.
Oh, hey, don't worry.
I got I got a Mitchell travesty and Leonard Floyd Jersey sign.
I'm not taking that, ever.
I wanna burn that so bad.
I got that signed.
Personally, they bring Peyser in for a workout.
Then they bring the oh! Oh, my goodness.
Notre Dame legend a pack.
So Hey, I gotta say, is Cleo back? Maybe Sean Kinds of Daddy.
Cleo back just ran all over and pushed him down.
Hey, hey, Roger.
Don't want, like me that come back from Hey, man, I got something to show you from the Cubs World Series. Give me a second.
What is that? I bet he's gonna show me a World Series replica ring or probably a What is that? Action? Oh, that's a It's a crappy little Bible.
How can you see a World Series trophy? Yep.
Can't think that.
But Anthony Rizzo bobblehead.
No, it's just a random player because they didn't want to get the licensing for that, I guess.
You know, they already had it.
Chicago sports suck.
Wait, You're Blackhawks won three cups in five years from 2015.
This is gonna sound stupid.
I'm a Bobby whole signed football.
Not bad. Not bad.
Ah, they they around the unwrapped.
They like to call me wise cheese because I have a cheese head that I wear around for most for most dreams and on the cheese head, I have ah, have James Jones autograph on it.
That way you can see, but yeah, I e She said one player I actually really like on the packers.
I loved him out of college.
I love that we're able to hit him.
Especially us needing a safety way did a huge, huge win getting that.
But, you know, I run defense sucks.
So you know, we don't We don't want to get I guarantee you we get less than 115 on you.
Oh, I don't know.
You think are run. Defense is very bad.
I mean, look at our Did you see that one cook I have about my fantasy team? I was very happy.
You were shredded our defense apart.
200 total yards, four touchdowns.
Imagine if I was prime Adrian Peterson going against you.
That was prime ap.
He would have had at least 2 50 if that was pride AP That was 2 50.
At least you guys.
You guys, cowboys fans, you don't have toe feel my pain.
Hey, e like does.
But he's on the Raiders, not Ravens now.
Hey, how about how about them Cowboys two and seven? You've got the Red Rifle coming to town about to go to and eight.
And guess what? You still have a chance with the N f C East.
Think you can either have a number of top five pick or make the playoffs? Yeah, that's that's the NFC East right there.
E don't even wanna talk about it.
It's going to stress me if there's no, don't worry.
Do you remember when you were five and one? Yeah.
And then we lost four straight frauds.
Honestly, I knew you were frauds from the start.
Well, yeah, we were paying Nick Foles 20 year.
You traded for him to? Yeah, exactly.
You couldn't hate me for No, no, no, no.
I'm happy without Newton, I'm happy.
Without new, we could have a Teddy Bridgewater state record with Cam Newton.
As you do with your Michigan fools.
I would have rather had Teddy Bridgewater and I might have actually a better record.
You probably Maybe you probably give us a run for our money, but you know, way when you guys have door in Love is quarterback.
You'll figure out how hard this have a bad quarterback.
Oh, I don't know.
Way transition pretty well from far, too Rogers.
If the same thing happens, just have 3 to 4 years.
You know, we'll see what happens.
I do definitely hope we give Rodgers another rink's definitely unfair that we only have one because their people have been trashed for almost a decade.
On what's that? And what's sad is when we do give Aaron Rodgers the top 10 defense, we either make it to the Super Bowl or at least go to the NFC championship game.
It's really pathetic that you guys only won one Super Bowl with Rogers.
I know and just think, really want one that far and went to Yeah, well, guys, I gotta get up in four hours.
Yeah, I gotta get up in, like, seven.
Right before you.
Does anybody else have any other football team? C J.
I know you're a big Patriots guy.
Heathens of bears.
What about you, Lamar? Do you have Do you have any favorite NFL teams? Raider Nation? How about How about that? Six and three? Yeah, they're playing really well right now along with the Oh, how you like your chances against the Chiefs this upcoming Sunday? Honestly, I just I just wanted to keep it close.
I don't think they're gonna be them, but we've been on one.
It's gonna be hard to duplicate.
I'm just happy we took care of business the last two games.
So if we lose toe B is bad.
We have six and four.
We still got to play the Jets, go play the Jets in the Falcon.
So, like, and where we're at right now, I just gotta hopeful defense, keep playing better.
Yeah, that's that.
That's that bit cool.
I love how the Raiders have definitely bounced back, especially from 2016 last time they made the playoffs.
Grudin definitely seems like he's got something special brewing in Vegas.
Whenever Vegas opens up their stadium and allows fans to go.
Will you ever attend a game in Vegas? Oh, yeah.
I'll fly out there myself.
I want to go see that.
What about what about what about you? Do you have a favorite NFL team knowing that that you're in Florida? Is that Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Miami? Or is it out of the blue? But okay.
Neither one of them up in any And that's for, like, the past decades.
So got to stick with the blue.
Oh, you're you're cold sky.
And we're having a pretty good year.
I'm surprised, E se August, We're gonna kick your ass on Sunday.
Batman Roger's gonna come to India and steal the soul out of the rivers.
I got $50 on the colts to cover, so I like that more.
Old man Rivers is gonna have a very old out there.
Now if there's one thing I am concerned about is that called defense called Defense is a very legit defense.
Really? I thought you'd be more concerned about you know Heinz Wilkins Taylor.
Trust me, I know.
How about a run defense is I saw it against Dalvin Cook.
I saw in the NFC championship game last year that that's all that's our weakest link, but I think I think I think we'll be fine, especially with Al.
These are coming back gyre Alexander, Kevin King were in good business.
All right, guys, it's my bedtime.
