I just got to work.
Um, the eyes looking better.
Better nation still looked kind of fucked up.
Um, I just thought I'd give my thoughts on the Antonio Brown news from earlier today and maybe even a little bit of ah review of to K 20 which have been playing the past couple days.
Ah, I hope everybody's doing all right.
Everyone's in a good mood.
I'm gonna Good mood.
I just got done.
Finally finished the new post Malone album.
It's pretty good.
Um so Antonio Ground, as everyone knows waas about to be released, released by the Raiders and then gave an apology with all the captains of the team, apparently was emotional use crying.
I'm sorry and old, Capt.
They said, All right, you can stay on the team.
Uh, he got in a whole confrontation with Mike Mayock and posted the fine that he gave him for missing practice.
Because for some reason, Antonio Brown can't comprehend that when you don't show up for work like, yeah, you get in trouble.
So, uh, anyway, that all happened.
And then John Grogan says he's going to play on Monday, and then this morning, we'll wake up and Antonio Brown is requesting his release because they told him that they are not getting the guaranteed money that he's supposed.
I just wanted to get the 30 mil that he's gonna be paid like we do on a weekly weekly basis or some like that.
So he was like, Screw that just released me.
And they're like, All right, fine.
We'll release you.
So they release him.
He became unrestricted free agent officially at four o'clock that eastern time.
Uh, this afternoon and not even before the hour was over.
Patriots picked him up, just like all the people joking thought was going to happen.
Or some people really thought it was gonna happen.
Like I know, Uh uh, My friend Tyler Prickett called down one this morning, so patriots picked them up.
And basically, the Patriots are gonna have the best wide receiver for the NFL, which, like they usually don't and are still always going 12.
And for 13 3 whatever the fuck they go.
So now they have Antonio ground.
Um, Josh Gordon coming back from suspension.
I do not doubt it will last till the end of the season because he seems to just get suspended every year, like Goodell's out to get that guy, but they have him.
And then, of course, the Super Bowl MVP, Julian Edelman.
And then they have to kill Harry to who's on I R right now.
But he'll come back.
And the marriage.
Thomas is also there.
So basically what we're saying is the Patriots are going to win another Super Bowl and Tom Brady's gonna get that 73 like you might as well just just come just come to terms with it.
Now just accept it like this is the NFL that we're living in now.
This is this is on par with Kevin Durant joining the Warriors, and I don't know if that's really terrible thing.
Um, when Kevin Durant first on the Warriors, I was like one of the few people that thought would be good, because I think it makes the rest of the league better, which, if you look at the league now like it definitely has, Um, although it does promote maybe like teaming up a little bit more, which a lot of people hate, I think overall it it makes teams be better.
You can't just get by with the bare minimum.
Like the Dolphins, for instance of NFL.
Like what? I don't know what their plan is, but obviously they I think they already know this.
But this is gonna be extra incentive for them to be like All right, look, we can't do the bare minimum.
Um, if we want to compete, we want to keep our fans happy.
If we wanna win superbowls, then we're gonna have to go out there and get players like Antonio Brown.
I mean another hand.
It's only one year deal.
So maybe he literally is just there for, like, approve it.
Deal like it'll be there for a year, hopefully get a ring.
I'm sure that's what he's after.
And then after this season, he'll be a free agent again, and I will prove being on the Patriots, obviously, that he can still go.
He's worth oldest money, and then he can go get a bigger contract wherever he wants, because that's obviously what this old boiled down to.
Um, I know a lot of people make the mental health jokes, and he had, like, CT year or whatever, but I think this is like this has been planned for a while.
Like he got himself off the Steelers because he just didn't want to be on Steelers anymore.
And he got to Oakland.
Um, I don't know.
Maybe he did at first plan to be in open, but I think after being there for, like, a little bit and get in the training camp, he was like, I don't want to be here.
Like maybe he realized, uh, he's not gonna win with Derek Carr.
He's not gonna win with Jon Gruden, Which is probably true sorry to any Rangers fans out there.
I mean, I'm just trying to be honest, Um, so he just wanted out of there, and he I don't know.
I don't know if he talked to anybody beforehand.
Like, if this was premeditated with Rob Craft or Bella Check or Brady or somebody else on the Patriots.
That's his friend. I don't know.
Um, but I but I think he definitely got off the Raiders on purpose.
Um, I mean, I think I think that's, like, kind of obvious at this point, because after all the antics, after going into the a cryogenic chamber and not wearing the correct shoes, um after the whole helmet thing and then after posting the fine, like, I think he just kept doing things, hoping they would release him or at least like boiling it up to a point that they released him.
And, like, he finally got to that point where he asked for it.
They said, Yeah, um, and I think, like, I think at least within the last week, he definitely knew he wanted to go with Patriots like I'm just I'm like I think it's pretty obvious that he wants to win, he said.
Unlike shows like the Barbershop, that that that's what he wants to do is win.
Um, you keep saying that It was about this guaranteed money, which he still has guarantee money, but he has less now, so I really don't think it's all about that money.
Like, I think now he's just wants a ring, and I think he knew he couldn't get it with the Raiders.
So he said, you know, fuck that.
I'm gonna find a way off this team.
And he did, because they even posted the video.
Um, after all the news, broken everything where he posted the video himself of his reaction, finding out that he got released and he's fucking running around the backyard, you know, doing the fucking eagle wings.
Just happy as a little kid.
And, um I mean, obviously that that that's not how you would act if you wanted to be on the team.
And like he said, I'm free, I'm free, I'm free.
So, yeah, I'm one of the people.
That's definitely thinking he this this was all premeditated and that, uh, he's not crazy.
He's not suffering from c t.
He just really, really wanted to play for a Super Bowl contender.
I don't even know. Maybe it wasn't even just the Patriots.
Like maybe he was thinking the rims or or I don't know, like the Eagles or something like that.
But anyway, uh, we basically have Brady to Randy Moss.
Two point. Oh, no.
Um, I'm kind of excited for it, because if you know me, I actually love the Brady Randy Moss highlights.
And in that time period, it's one of my favorite quarterback wide receiver duos in history.
Just really fun to watch.
I'm not a Patriots fan at all, but I can appreciate good football and I think they're gonna have a lot of highlight plays and it's gonna be fun to watch.
Um, I'm hoping I'm hoping the Patriots don't win this.
You roll like, honestly, I think somebody can stop them.
Their defense, it It's still gonna be a Patriots defense.
But it's not like, you know, it's not like the Bears defense.
It's not like some juggernaut monster.
So it's gonna be an exciting NFL season, ladies and gentlemen, um, so and then just stand off.
I wanna talk about two k 20.
I don't know if any of you guys have been playing playing that, um, it's it's really not that much different from two K 19.
Like if we're being honest, Ah, lot of people are calling it just like a re skin, which is like there.
But the mechanics are different, and I think right now, at the moment they're actually like Junior.
I think that the but this, like always happens with two K at the beginning.
Like the first, the first couple weeks or so is just full of which is our or bad mechanic.
Thanks and like, the game plays really clunky, especially right now.
It's really clunky um, I noticed, like trying to play defense like you can't even, like, stay in front of a person they like, do this thing where, um well, first of all, they left.
They let the guy with the ball get in front of the whole time so they get it from him.
And then when you try to to, like, stay in front of them playing defense, it goes to like the side of their arm, and you just kind of stand there and you're just like pushing them.
But it gives them a free languages, dribble by and just hand lay up or hit a dog or whatever and this on both sides.
So I mean, it's easy for the user to when they're on offense, like I've been playing the domination on my team and literally, uh, if I just get the ball to my point guard, there's a lot of times Aiken just dribble right past the guy.
That's the point guard this defending me and just hit an easy layup.
The only time I get stopped is if this center has to come and help for the computer, and it's the same way on my team when I'm trying to play defense.
And that's the other thing is like the point Guards are way faster than everybody else.
Like, uh, I guess naturally, like point guards would be faster.
But if you watch the NBA's like that, you know that's not true.
Like LeBron, for instance, who plays, you know, all sorts of different positions is faster than a bunch of point guards in the league.
So literally like every poor guard that that's in the game, Um, especially the ones you start off with. Derrick Rose.
Um, I got like Allen Iverson, Kemba Walker, Danza, Russell.
Well, he's a shooting guard, actually, but they're all so fast, like, literally, you just hold down that trigger and just sprint to the basket and nobody can stop you.
Um, unless the center comes in like 1000 or center seems to be the only one that I could stop.
The port guards weigh the basket, I guess, because they're taller.
Um, that's the other thing is, um, or the other thing on defense that I hate You can't back little.
So like, even when you're trying to stay in the from the person, are the guy with the ball if you like, try to move backwards with them.
Your guy turns around completely and starts facing the basket, and then you have to like turning back around.
At that point, the person's already blowing past you so that that that's all messed up.
Um, you can barely hit three point shots like there's there's guys in the game that have, like 95 3 and even there's got, like 89 3 which means you should be able to hit it like pretty consistently, and they just cannot hit threes like it is.
The is the hardest shot to hit in the entire game, like you could be wide open.
And it's like if you don't green, if you don't green being it, If you don't get excellent excellent release, you don't green it, then you like basically, well, Mr Shot.
And if it's early, I've noticed and Mrs every time.
If you get a slightly early or just a early release, it will miss every time.
The only time I ever hit the difference slightly late or a green bean, which that that which makes zero sense, Um, where else is there that older animations for like going towards the hoop, Um, by going for layups like they can't do simple finger.
Lt's players, you know, you're supposed to be supposed to be MBA players that were replicating in this video game.
They can't do a simple finger roll when they have, like, the clear space.
And like what I'm talking about, for example, is like, I'll be dribbling right with my right hand and I got the defender right here on my left side.
And but he's like our my left outside, so I could easily like, I don't even I'm not even a big basketball guy.
Like, you know, I'm not super athletic or anything like that.
Even I can do a simple just come over my right hand and a finger roll.
If you try to do that in the game, they will literally, just I don't even know what they do.
They take it like this and just, like, try to go straight up and it just gets looking blocked or like we're having me today is I was on the right side of the room and they tried to go up with their left hand and, like maybe, you know, maybe I'm doing something wrong, But, I mean, I've been playing two K's now since, like two K 11 so I'm pretty sure I know how to play it.
It just makes no sense to me that, like this kind of happened in the last game, too, like you're on the right side of the rim.
You know, basic basketball knowledge would say, you know, go up with your right hand But they try to do the stupid crap when they go over on the left side, order on the right side and shoot with the left hand, which makes no sense the side of the defenders on so, uh that they need.
They need to add some more animations of going for going to the rim.
And other than that, it's really just like the badges right now.
It's like if you're a player, has a certain badge, it's something on your players, like really high.
It's almost like they're too good at it.
Like the DeMar DeRozan car, for instance, he has like a really good dunk, which Rosen is a good dunker.
But this dude is like fucking Shawn Kemp.
He's dumped dunking on everyone like literally.
If you just hold X one.
He's running towards the rim.
Your he's gonna posterized whoever standing in front of him where that's a center for a powerful word or you know anybody that's taller them. It doesn't matter.
He can just dunk everything.
The outs Caruso card is like that, too, You know, I think it's funny because Alex Crusoe is a pretty.
It's pretty good dunker, and everyone makes the jokes about him being like a posterized dunker and all that and, uh, the other.
The other place I noticed.
That is where this whole batch thing happens, is all the players that have the defense of badges like Paul George and COO Y Leonard and Patrick Beverley, especially who's just whose? Only a gold card.
Um, this is all like my team, by the way.
I mean, maybe if you play like the play now with your friends, you might find the experience different.
Um, but yeah, the Patrick Beverley literally can steal everything.
All he has to do is tap tap, tap the meets X on Xbox, tap the steel button, and he's stealing the ball like every single time.
Paul George like the same way and they also have a badge were like, If you try, I think Brick Wall.
If you try to dribble past them, you literally just can't like, even if they're like, you know, dozing off and not paying attention.
If you even like, touch them.
They just have this brick wall you like, bounce back and you just lose your triple every time.
So basically, but the rest of the rest of the game is good.
Like I can tell that, like the potential is there.
Like they change the mechanics a little bit, which is good.
Cause to K 19 was was far from anywhere near like, perfect.
Um, so I think just a couple patches, which I know for sure, are coming like they always come that basically any game that comes out now off released, they have to release some sort of patch.
So they're a couple patches away from being a great game.
Right now. It's a it's a it's a good game.
I like a lot of the new things.
They added to my team.
Um, like the type of rewards and I like the way the cards look.
Um, I like the evolution players a lot.
Devolution players are cool.
The fact that they have certain players like they're certain position, they're locked into position so you can't have of LeBron playing point guard.
You know, you can't have your center playing point guard.
And, like, I know for, like, Magic Johnson, for instance, they're gonna use a version of him that's like the point guard version.
And when he played center.
Um, right now, Ben Simmons is that power forward, which is his original position, you know, coming into the N B a, um, he'll probably get a card, I'm sure where he supported guard.
Eventually, once they start putting on board cards, that can kind of defend him and they get their mechanics right.
But I like that. I like that.
Um, you know, only point guards can play point guard.
You can put them at small forward or something like that.
And, um, I haven't played much my parker or my career yet, so I can't really talk on that, But I know my friends have been playing it and they said it's kind of just the same as last year.
Um, but I don't know I try it out right now, I've just been playing my team. Mostly.
I'm just grinding that because I was my favorite game of just what I like to play.
But what do you guys think? You know, uh, feel free Thio to hit me up on Twitter with, uh, what do you think about two K if he played it? How you feel about Antonio Brown and you know anything sports.
Really? If you sure talk, I'm always down to talk.
I'm stuck here, worked for the next eight hours working nights.
So I would love to have a conversation about the game's going on tomorrow.
Because I know we're all really excited for football tomorrow anyway, if you guys air.
Ah, college football fans, I hope you're enjoying any games left.
They're still on.
I hope you had a good Saturday, and I hope you guys have a nice first day of NFL Sunday football tomorrow.
All right, just come by, guys.
