321 Hey, what's up? Our body? Sixers win knockout blow.
A lot to talk about the night.
Uh, 76 years Minnesota Timberwolves in town.
1 17 95 Really wasn't even close, huh? We could probably start the show in the second quarter, but ah, that would off definitely hindered us from seeing the fight, which we'll get to in a little bit.
Ah, what's what's is why labeled this show's Sixers deliver the knockout blow? Because, well, indeed, did a classic troll job on Carmen in the towns.
Cat falls for it again.
The guy's never gonna learn.
Joe Joe is an absolute legend in this town.
But to get into the flow of this game, I mean honestly, And from from the opening tip, we already knew what kind of team We're gonna face a Minnesota when we're basically a two man team, right? Ah, they have.
They have quarantine towns.
I have anything.
Wiggins are Anthony Andrew Wiggins on my apologies.
Ah, but we already knew that.
That's all they had on this team.
Ah, and it showed it really did.
Ah, you know, they were really There were hands strong offensively defensively.
Ah, you know, they were a little better.
They call some turnovers.
I think that the six has turned over the ball.
Ah, lot more than I would like them to see them.
D'oh! Which is something that they got out of that they have to get to, you know, work on.
Um but that's little common time.
Ah, don't come in time.
And they're still learning one another is to learn how to gel.
I think there may be trying to do too much.
Guys like spies hires like Ben Simmons.
I just have to get in, come to you.
It's become remain sound.
Listen, uh, you know, breath rounds gotta be happy with one thing.
And that's Al Horford.
And you have to be happy with the play off the 32 33 year old journeymen, Uh, who's really been in Boston for most of his career? Ah, all of his career.
Really? Okay, But when Joe gets kicked out of the game and we didn't have to see Amir Johnson, right, we didn't have to see Jonah Bolden.
Okay? We throw Al Horford writing that slop, which is a big luxury tohave.
Now listen, obviously we don't want Jo Jo to get kicked out of every game.
It's definitely not a trend we want to start.
Okay, I think we're all fully aware of that, Okay? But the thing is, you do have that luxury that when Joe does go out, that there's, Ah very capable veteran big man being able to step in to that game and play very, very well.
I mean, now, Horford, we were up 20 and Al Horford was still hostile in court.
I mean, here's a guy that's going to show the youngsters in the N b A.
And on the Philadelphia 76 years how to play the right way.
You know, that was a big reason why I was a big proponent off this signing without war effort.
Ah, the guy can not only shoot the ball, you plays stellar defense.
Ah, he could take you a dribble drive.
You could shoot the three.
Okay. He's a rebounding machine.
Everything about him just shows the word of the phrase.
The sixties are basically targeting, which is billable, right? The Sixers are playing bully ball.
And one thing I mentioned on the Late Show then regards the Ben Simmons was.
Ben basically has his way with whoever he wants.
And that is amazing to me.
Okay, Ben, just he backs down.
He gets underneath the basket with ease.
It's, you know, I brought this up before.
It's It's sort of like LeBron James.
Okay, it's almost just like LeBron OK.
LeBron can get anybody at any time under the basket on it, the glass and be able to do and, you know, impose will on his opponents.
And that's a Ben Simmons is starting to, though.
Okay, uh, you know, beginning the game started, start from the first quarter of the first quarter, I think was ah, lot of sloppy play for the 76.
Is it really was way too many turnovers.
Tobias, still indecisive, starts off cold.
Okay, Early again, Uh, still trying to find his way, which I I still don't understand.
Tobias, this is your team, bro.
I mean, you're you're the number three option, right? What? Knockout blow.
The punching or the wind? Come on, man.
Listen, when? When? When you can get when Joel Embiid can get into the youngster's head.
Okay, when he can get to the opposing team's psyche, okay, and he could listen.
That's their best player, right? So if you're able to knock out their bass player out of the game, what do you think's gonna happen? They have no answer.
We at least have more than one guy on this team.
We showed that we can win without that guy, Right? We had no problem with in Detroit without your Wallaby.
How did you? How did that team look with Cart? Without Karl Anthony towns, That was their main offensive weapon off the floor.
So it's a knockout blow in every sense of the word.
It's a knockout blow because we want to gain its not Goblet because we're calling it the town's off the court.
Okay, it's a knockout blow because Joel got a couple shots in, You know, it wasn't the ones throwing haymakers or nothing, but this is a tough team.
Okay, let's talk about knockout blows.
Let's talk about toughness.
That's talk about grittiness, right? This is a team that the MBA hasn't seen in over 20 years, right? And make no mistake about it, you know in the nineties.
Late eighties early nineties, when you had the bad boys of Detroit.
Okay? Were led by Chuck Daly.
Led by Isaiah Thomas, Rick Mahorn and Bill and Beer and James, that words of John, Sally and Vinny Johnson.
Uh, listen, the reason why they won so many games is because they were able essentially two out battle.
There are other team toe out battle in their brain.
The other team they imposed will on everybody in every single game.
They were intimidating from the very opening tip.
Which is exactly what, The Philadelphia 76 years.
All right now, Okay, the New York Knicks.
You know, you go in the nineties with the next teams of Ewing in Stark's and Charles Smith and and the Masons Xavier when they all right, these teams, okay? They're what we call Billy Bully ball.
Okay, which is exactly what the Sixers are doing right now.
I mean, they were composed up all day long when when coral and in towns in the game.
And Joel and he was in the game.
So I won't be get wherever he wanted at any given time.
And the defensive switches weren't happening for the Minnesota. Several walls.
Guys were standing around, okay? They didn't really know what to dio.
Okay, so there were so many different things that happened in this game.
The show What kind of team the Philadelphia 70 Sixers have right now.
Uh, let me check my phone for a second.
Get some questions here.
Do you think Do you think they're gonna kill on defeated? John wants, though.
Ah, the 76 is will not go on to feed it.
Let me be one second, guys.
I gotta Sheridan Stream world famous to bring some more people into the conversation, but yeah, I mean, listen Ah, you know, the thing is this is going to go on for a very long time, right? This is gonna go on all year.
This is going to go on, you know, essentially every game in the east.
And I don't think the MBA is ready for this.
I mean, you obviously see the MBA referees aren't ready for this, right? They're not ready to deal with what's going on here.
They're not ready to deal with the toughness of the Philadelphia 70 Sixers.
I could tell you that right now.
You could just tell about it, Mike.
Scottish you the other night.
Ah, there's so many things you could tell why they were not ready to deal with this. Trust me.
Uh, hold on for one second.
Going live here.
Ah, let's get back in the first quarter.
Sloppy play the rebounding 18 before.
I mean, listen, the 76 is outrebounded the Minnesota Timberwolves all night.
Okay? I really did.
I mean, I I actually have the numbers right in front of me, okay? I make sure I had the mop.
You're talking 56 to 34.
I mean, they almost double outrebounded the other team.
Okay? Two of four opponents this season were held under 100 points.
Okay, this is a defensive team.
Ah, 100 points per game.
This season is what they're averaging on defense.
Okay? And this is the N B.
But this is the N B A.
Where teams have scored 121 117.
Okay, that's what we're scoring every game, and we're not even playing our best ball.
Okay? So, essentially, if this is gonna get to you, Dogo and continue to flow the MBA is in trouble and sound out The Lord's right now.
Okay, get everybody ready.
Because guess what? The Philadelphia 76 is air here and here to stay.
I could tell you that.
What more can we talk about? Matisse.
We could talk about the tease.
A defensive prowess.
I understand he's been getting into foul trouble early, is a rookie, and he's very excited.
Okay, he's out there.
He is all over the court.
And I mean, he's not shooting consistently yet that that that shot will come.
But I heard earlier on the radio, and I I'm not gonna say what station, but I see no Twitter, no facebook.
Hard it on the radio.
I'm still trying to figure out what the love affair is for Robert. Copy.
I really I don't get what the love affair is for Robert Covington.
Uh, Robert Covington's.
Okay, I I don't understand.
I understand that.
You know, you had the guy here. I understand.
He was defensive mastermind.
I understand he had a decent shot.
Okay, but he's just an average n b a player.
Okay, Matisse table Has it changed to be star, not a superstar.
I I by no means think devotees.
Sybil will be a m b a superstar, but the say he could be an m b a star.
I fully believe that.
I think, you know, as long as he keeps the right psyche in the right mindset and he's got the right coach for it and he's got the right team for this kid's gonna be a star.
You could tell, you know, listen for Concorde, Miles.
I killed him all night.
I killed him last week.
I understand he had a He had a career naughty eights and points.
He knocked down a couple threes.
He had a couple of dogs there was happy on Twitter.
But my concern is why? Why Frankie? Like we, we went to this game where we let his watches 25 points in this game and I still don't see Trey Burke on the floor.
I mean, I don't understand.
I quirk Mas is a nice player to shoot the rock every now and then, but he can't play defense.
He's definitely liability.
Okay, if you think j j radical and play defense.
Oh, you need to do is watch for Con Cork models for a little bit.
You'll be able to see that he's not playing, wants defense.
Okay, He kind of looks lost out there on the court, which is something that you need to take notice on and the reason why I call him out on the reason why I feel that I don't understand why he's on the floor.
Breath round will continue to mess with his rotations, but it really seems like he's got it down to a science who he wants.
Where who goes in that? The biggest thing that I've seen, the difference of fact of this year's you know Joel Manby goes out all the time in the first quarter between six and seven minutes, right? He's always going out to seven minute mark.
Six minute more.
Last year it was a problem.
Joe Well went out.
You know, you had guys coming in like a Jonah Bolden.
Okay, guys again, Amir Johnson who? Listen, they only gave you so box.
Let let let's be honest, right? You could only get so much from those guys.
And now you have a guy like Harvard.
It's a slide over.
Okay, you could bring another guy off.
Depends like I'm like, Scott are James in its, you know, and And that's huge.
And I think not only is a huge now, it'll be huge going forward.
It'll be huge once we get to the playoffs, because it's gonna be something essentially, that not a lot of things are gonna be able to stop, Man.
A lot of people viewing in tonight I know what's going on.
They must be ah, all excited over the Sixers win.
Maybe they're partying in the streets out there.
Ah, you know, hopefully already hears me. Okay.
Ah, I know that people lots.
And I got people Text me like crazy.
What do you think? What do you think Brett Brown's gonna do? Joel suspended.
Well, um, listen, we just talked about that.
Joe Ellis is if you go to be suspended, he's probably gonna be what I think it's ridiculous.
Um, I thought that Mike Scott flagrant foul flake or two the other night was ridiculous.
It did get posted.
The honor of Flavor one, which is definitely the right move.
Ah, boy, I don't understand.
In the n B a While they're trying to make us so soft.
I mean, Jo Ellan be was basically doing whatever you want to do tonight.
And if you would, would have continued in the game.
Ah, obviously, you know, it would have been crazy.
Uh, I can't imagine how many points he would scored at one time, right? Ah, but, uh, looking forward, looking to the next game.
Look, it's the next stretch, okay? Obviously, people, they're gonna have to lose a game right there.
They're not They're not gonna go e to know.
Ah, this isn't the Chicago Bulls with the 72 73 wins.
Ah, you know, it would be fantastic.
It would be great.
Would love every minute of it.
Okay, But it's not gonna happen now, hosing this question, you know? You know, I thought about wants a couple guys on SportsCastr earlier.
They were talking at the Milwaukee game, and obviously, I think the Sixers and the box wanted to are basically gonna be in the Eastern Conference finals, right? I think the two teams Indiana has a chance.
I think Indiana has a chance to get in there.
Ah, you know, if everybody they get all their players back healthy, I think they have a nice team out there.
But at the end of the day, it's gonna be the Greek free and God's been against Joe and I don't see more.
Walking is being a threat to the Sixers.
I don't think they have a solid team like we have.
Ah, and that brings you to call Korver because Kyle Korver added chains to come here, and he essentially chose to go to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Listen, you know what? That's his decisions out.
Like we didn't try to get Kyle Korver here.
It's not like, you know, he picked that.
Listen, the picked, um I think because he figured he was gonna get a little more playing time that he would have got here, Which is understandable.
I understand that.
I definitely definitely understand that.
Ah, Kalle Korver could have been a really nice distance team as a shooter.
Maybe I wouldn't have seen Cork Bonds as much on the court.
Okay, but we don't have him right now.
I really think that they'll try to make a couple moves here and there.
Ah, trade deadline, move.
Maybe something that you have, whether this season to get that bad shooter to get that score in here.
Ah, because right now we don't need it.
Okay? We don't need it right now because we're winning on defense.
You know, we absolutely don't need it.
This team has not even played their best game yet.
They haven't even played their past offensive game yet, and they're absolutely destroying teams.
Okay, we watched them play Boston in game one.
Not their best game.
They win by 14 right? We watched them go to Detroit.
Detroit's a decent team.
Okay? Still complain or basketball be Detroit.
Then they come home against Atlanta right again.
Atlanta and nice young teen.
We beat them again, not playing our best ball.
Okay? And then again, we have tonight.
Minnesota comes in here, You know, we're ready for the match up.
Obviously, between car and thing sounds and Jo Ellan be, you see what we get and we don't put our best game.
We turn the ball over 20 plus times, which is way too much.
I don't care how much we want by.
You cannot turn the ball over 20 plus size Because going four, we're gonna play better teams.
You're gonna be in closer games and you can't be lack of days.
Go with the ball and that's talking to you, Ben.
That's talking to you, Tobias.
You guys gotta hold onto the ball a little more.
The ball protection has to be much, much better.
And and Brett's got to be unhappy about that.
Uh, can this bully ball we outreach? Absolute.
I mean, I was sorry about this earlier before you joined him.
I mean, I don't think anybody's ready for this kind of ball, OK, the players aren't ready for it.
The coaches aren't ready for that.
Referees **** shoring ready for because that's why there's only flagrant fouls that listen.
They have not seen this kind of play since the New York Knicks in the nineties.
They haven't seen this kind of play since the Detroit Pistons of the late eighties.
Okay, that's the context.
That's the kind off Hoff nous and the kind of basketball that we're playing here in Philadelphia right now.
I didn't expect it, I did it, but when you have guys out there like I'm like Sky and Al Horford and Jo Ellan beat.
And it Ben Simmons.
These kinds aren't backing down at all.
Okay? And you already see that J.
Rich has the attitude and the moxie.
He already has it.
He has that ship that you want to see.
He has that ****iness that you want to see, and he has the toughness that you want to see.
Okay, so these thieves players are already bought in to this bully ball system.
Okay, You see it tonight with the Post that they were posted up all night long, and that's going to continue, You know, that's gonna be the trend going forward.
Okay? Which I love.
I love every minute of it because I don't want to see 45 3 point shots.
This isn't the team to shoot 45 3 point shots, OK? And the funny thing is, when I coached basketball, I would consistently say, work the ball in to get it back out.
Right? Working down low, get it? Get that passed out.
Get that blocks out.
Right? So, essentially, that's what you want.
You want guys like Tobias get in the open shot.
Josh Richards and getting the open shaman said Jason Richardson.
Okay, You want Josh works and get in the open shot.
That's you want, But they can't get the open shot if you don't force down low first.
If you don't take your man to the hole and open up that double team are open up that isolation or open up that lean, that needs to happen.
And that's what this team is doing.
They bought into it.
Ben consistently gets underneath the basket.
And you know what I don't carry is missing shots right now.
Okay? What I'm happy about is he actually taking shots, right? He's actually taking shots, which is a huge deal to May.
Okay, that's something that we've been waiting for.
I don't need on a shoot 65 threes like the 65 special.
Okay, that I thought Scamper was talking about.
Okay, I I don't I don't want to see that.
Okay, because I would have got the under all day long.
Okay? What I want to see is I want to see bank commanded the command.
The offense is out of the ball.
I want to see him get to the whole I want to see on back down his defenders.
And I definitely want to take care of the ball.
Some of his passes tonight were electric.
Some of his passes from received from a T Stibel on the one on one game on the pick and roll game or a tremendous Okay, the bounce pass by the rookie.
I Listen, you can't make it off.
This kid is definitely going somewhere.
Okay, No doubt about it.
Um, it's something that you definitely like to say.
Ah, let's see how they come out the next game. They responded.
Well, listen, Jo Jo is a legend in this town.
Okay? If you don't think he is a legend, you're sadly mistaken.
Okay, This guy, well, from what he's done and what he's been able to do, okay, to get the crowd behind him, Okay? To play onto the crowd, to troll the other team.
Okay, in a morgue.
Okay, was it would say, Hey, he's trolling.
I was laughing when Zuma was actually get into the You know that now and then lingo, which is unbelievable.
Um, on for a second, and he says what aboutthe steals it listen.
It steals 14 13 Was the matter, right? The Sixers have one more seal, but again, Matisse Diable four steals.
Ben Simmons, four steals.
Okay, Josh Richards and three steals right between those three guys are huge.
11 steals, Richie. Three guys.
And that's gonna be all season long again.
Josh Richardson doesn't get enough credit for how long and Lanky is okay.
And how much of Ah, good defender he is.
Sybil is all over the court.
He does have to slow down a little bit, okay? He's getting the foul trouble early.
Now, that latest family they calling him was ridiculous.
It was a hope we all seen it.
We all understand, but the rookie still has toe.
He has to be team a little bit.
And we'll get that.
I rather basically telling the calm down that had to get his ass and tell him that he has to do much better.
So that's a huge deal to bay.
I really like what I see out of the rookie, and obviously Brett likes and we trust him, which is a huge thing, even when you go deeper into the bench.
When you could bring a guy like a Kyle O'Quinn.
I'd rather have Kyle quando que nous agree with you, but I'd rather have Kyle O'Quinn that Amir Johnson.
Okay, Amir Johnson.
That was the problem last year was they didn't have those bench pieces.
And I think this year I think they did an excellent job by getting as much as they could with the cap that they had.
I think that's the easiest way to put a Amir.
Doesn't have a job.
He could be playing for the Blue Coats again like he was last year.
Maybe he's like the match over in Delaware, but that's the biggest difference this year.
We do not have to worry about that, okay? We definitely don't have to worry about that.
Uh, Cork monster. No defense.
My last note here was about court miles and everybody was all holy about court miles, getting couple threes and get a couple dunks.
And, you know the guy still lost in the court? You said what you want.
Um, town just said we didn't play our system.
What? Do you know what, Candace, you'll crash.
Oh, about about cat.
You want some? Walk off the floor.
You see Joe Joe playing up to the crowd, right? E? I mean, you see, he's getting He's still getting his head.
A cat was like a little baby walking off the court, man, I mean that that that there's a reason why you may not like Jimmy Butler.
Okay, I don't mean Kane Smile of Jimmy Butler.
I mean, people may not like Jimmy Butler, but Jimmy Butler was 100% correct what he said about those young players, especially calling it the town in Minnesota.
Okay, I'm not gonna say it on here, but we all know what cat is, okay? And it begins with a B ends with eight.
Just like our boy. Enzo.
A little w reference.
Okay, But yet listen, he is definitely solved, Okay? There's a reason why people don't want to play with them.
Okay, Because listen, you need to stand up, man.
Listen, you need to stand up.
If you're gonna go down swinging, then go down swinging.
Don't go down making excuses, okay? Like Ben Simmons came and put your ace in a headlock.
Okay? You got up and you laughed it off.
I will you in his face.
You let assistant coaches break you off.
Why? Jo Jo was laughing at you, taking shadow box and shots.
And that's the problem.
That's a problem with Cat.
And that's why the Minnesota symbols will never win.
We can't sorry he's never gonna be the guy.
And we could go around the N b.
A talk about to solve players.
And the reason why I'm so excited about the six esteem.
Okay, It's same reason why I think Anthony Davis is soft.
I think it's the same thing with a D.
Say what you want.
Listen, he's in a cushy spot right now in Laker Lane, right? He gets protected by the big boy. LeBron.
That's his big brother out there.
So Andy Davis can't do any wrong, right? Andy Davis.
He bailed on the pelicans, got what he wanted, cried in the corner.
Now he goes, L. A.
You know, now he's going 40 and 20.
Now he's going to say it's all about skill.
Listen, if you listen, I have no problem.
What? You want to switch teams? I have no problem.
What? You're saying that you're not happy where you're at, but no being man and play out and play for your boys while you're still there.
And not act like, you know, like baby in the corner from dirty dancing.
Sit there trolling on your phone and not really paying attention.
That's not a problem at eight.
Dig So a d maybe 18 cat can play together? I don't know, but they both soft in my opinion.
And I have no time for either one of them.
Ah, you know Jo Ellan b is an enigma.
Jo Ellan b is again.
He has so much gain and he has so much skill.
Okay? And he has so much swag and so much toughness.
He doesn't even he don't even think you realize it or I should say he realizes some of it because you could tell the way he acts.
But just the word around the league nobody wants Nobody wants to play the sixties right now.
Ah, you know somebody I forget who was on Twitter.
Actually, I think it was Ah ah, one of our crew at West Bank. It's out.
Basically was saying that you know, you know, calling it the town circles that circles to stay on the calendar.
And he doesn't want to show up, you know? And again, you know, I can't wait till they play him again.
I can't, you know, and And listen, the best part was, ah, somebody had a picture on Twitter of the fight.
And you see Al Horford in the background.
Kind of like, you know, big pop pop back there saying I that the boys just get over it, they'll come back.
I don't need to get involved.
I'm just going to see what's going on, you know? And that's that's the greatness of this whole thing, right? That the greatness of the whole thing is you have you have been jump it in there like, you know, like the younger brother.
Okay, even though they're around same age.
Right, but and be this five.
Wanna lay six games against towns? Listen, he owns towns.
I mean, it's like Michael versus Karl Malone, right? He own Karl Malone.
Joel Embiid owns towns, man.
I mean, cat, you might as well not even show up the next game.
You know what's gonna happen.
You know what's gonna happen? That game is gonna be rough.
You know? Obviously it's gonna be in Minnesota.
That's how we play.
Ah, but I'll tell you why.
I love I'd love to see I love to say, Ah, we need to be versus Portland came this.
I think he's going for two games.
I don't know about you, but, you know, in this soft N b a the soft world that we're living in now I think he's going for at least two games.
Listen, you really even do anything right? He even do anything.
And if you watch the replay, cat was ready to drop.
You just don't try to flop when they were locked up before that afforded for that even suit before the fight, even suit.
You've seen the faith can actually trying to drop it.
I'll tell you what.
If Joel didn't even have the if Joel didn't have the the arm lock on it, we probably would have fell okay, which is crazy that he was already trying to flop on that play.
That's how saw that car and the town's is.
So I'll tell you what you know.
What can I hope that they don't suspend him.
But I know there was, Ah, there was a tweet rolling around already for somebody from the funny MBA.
Like a credible account that was saying, you know, you know, suspensions are coming, so there's no doubt my money at least Mrs again, But I still think it's gonna be double.
So let me double games.
And you know what, Thank God it's early, right? Thank God.
So we're for No, I'm not saying I wanna lose.
I would love to go.
He's you know, I know it's not possible.
Ah, but, you know, if you're gonna lose a game early, you're gonna lose game.
You know, if it's gonna be the Western for a little bit of a Western opponent, not the Eastern opponent.
I'm good with that.
I don't think either of those guys should be suspended, to be honest with you, but you know, the source seems like they're gonna get a couple of games for something that's silly.
Is that especially? Here's the other thing.
Even if they, you know, there was a chance, maybe they wouldn't get suspended.
Now that the *** is already went to the league and They appealed the Mike Scott flagrant Sue and got knocked down off later.
One, even if that was the right call, and that was the right thing to do.
But the MBA, you know, in their mind, they're probably saying that themselves.
You know what? We're not gonna do this twice for this team, okay? We already gave a one.
We're not giving him too, OK? They're not gonna admit fault, you know? And even though they're not really meaning fault with the suspension, but yeah, I think they're gonna play hardball with this, and, you know, they're gonna give us once they can, which is unfortunate.
Um, the league is about money.
It is about money.
So they want to see the big man play.
But I think you know, you gotta remember something too.
If you're talking about Portland and you're talking about CJ and you're talking about dame, you know those tickets are Is that Portland game? There was important game here.
I didn't look at the schedule.
Um, is it a home game or is it Ah, pretty sure.
It's at Portland.
Okay, so, you know those tickets are sold already, right? You.
Nobody's going to show up to see dame anyway, showing off the sea sees a felt the seat.
So, I mean, the league is about money, but I don't think there's gonna be any extra tickets being sold at that game because I think they're already done.
They're probably already sold and that, you know, listen, two sixes are a drawl right now.
They really are you.
I mean, I really think that people at away games actually circled a counter.
They want to see Jo Ellan be right.
But, you know, they probably by obviously beforehand what's you know, unfortunately, already got their money.
So I really don't think that's gonna take anything on account of you know, how they're gonna hack.
You know, David Silver, whatever.
It's not my biggest fan.
I mean, I'm not his biggest fan, so, um, it's a question earlier.
Ah, you know, and I had some people chime in already with this and I, you know, I like the I do the shows.
I kind of like to go back of four because that's not everybody can join in a live at 10 o'clock or 10 15 on a on a Wednesday night.
People do work early in the morning.
You know, I do shows where I have 100 people.
I do shows I have five people.
Ah, but at the end of the day, when he gets when it gets streamed live and you know people watch the next day, I I get the comments I get the likes.
I mean, is this has been a really good month for us here, Phillie influencer and myself, respectively, for getting on here as once I can.
Ah, we're over, like, 15,000 views for the month.
And we saw one more day.
So I'm really not worried about only the couple people joining in tonight.
I appreciate them, but I know there'll be more coming in, you know, tomorrow and next day that I was gonna watch this and threats recorded.
So what I ask is no something floating around support center last week and it was basically, you know, a pick up game, and it was saying, Listen, if if you could play, pick off and you could take who would be your five being pickup team and they could go past present, you could do a mixture, but you got to fill positions.
You gotta throw a point guard.
You got a 30 to guard.
Got 1/3 small for the powerful and the center.
It's so essentially, Who is it that you're gonna roll with it, you know, on the blacktop.
You know, you're you're showing up.
Everybody's in a big pool and you get to pick those five guys, right? So I threw this out there earlier.
Simmons is So So you're going Simmons already? LeBron.
Why? I can't came this.
I cannot believe you're going.
I can't wait to see you got going on into this.
LeBron, I'm gonna share It is again real fast.
I need the assess.
We see if I could share this real fast, get some more people in.
Uh, say I am going to get some or in here kicking this Hold on.
Let's get some more people here.
All right, let's see what you got here.
So, Paul George 80.
Candace, I am shocked you didn't pick one pass player.
Are you? Just go.
Is that just your present day long? Because I'm going pace and proud.
I'm going? We're going old school here.
You could pick whoever you want.
I honestly don't get Oh, you're going to see I'm going mix.
So that's where you got me.
Okay, I I see where you're going now sound Go a mix.
You know, I'm going past and I'm going President.
Ah, and I'll be answering.
I only have one present superstar all my list.
Okay, so I'm gonna go.
I'll type it in.
Are Barca see too, Right.
So let's see what you think.
So I'm going, Steph, I'm going m j ongoing Larry legend.
Come then I'm going Timmy D And then for the ultimate, I'm going shock.
So that's my That's my five guys.
That's why I'm picking up.
So I see where you're going present day, right? But I don't know about Simmons.
I still think I take Steph the wrong. My point.
I still think I'd take staffed around my point.
I I definitely I mean, indeed at the five.
He's the best big man, the lake.
No doubt about it.
I definitely definitely see why you would go with him at the five a.
We talked about? Yeah, he might be solved.
But that's why he could still ball, right, so I could still see him.
Okay, I could see that there was Ah, King.
She should have been.
I had a show last six or show I did.
It went past em's Ay, ay, ay, LeBron Kareem in shock that I like it.
I definitely like that.
Um I don't even think a I but you know, obviously I love how you see the jersey in the back, but, you know, and I need I needed Yeah, you're absolutely right.
You need somebody to go on the ball out.
Right? That Absolutely.
Um the other thing.
It was funny cames I'm talking about We got in this conversation.
I wish you were on last time.
Tonight's not a ah, we don't have a lot of lot of comments.
And I had tons of lays show and I had Somebody was telling me that Mugsy Bos should have been in the conversation when I was talking about Michael and LeBron.
I think you would love that one.
I don't know where the Mugsy.
Yeah, exactly, Muggsy Bogues.
I'm not lying if you go back.
Like, if you get a change, go back and watch the stream that I had the other night after the Atlanta game, I went about 50 minutes and because 20 of it we were talking about you.
We opened up everything.
You know, President, be a old school MBA.
And, you know, I start talking about the start talking about the Michael, Kobe and LeBron to be.
And this dude was like, Don't forget about ******.
I'm like Muggsy Muggsy Bogues.
Listen, I got May respect for Mugsy for being ah, small guy and for saying that's that's the time in the league.
But come on, man, he doesn't even enter.
He's not even a question mark, like you just put into that conversation.
So I was a little little Ah, little surprised.
I don't know where that came from.
Ah, but I want to say one thing.
Okay? We talked about President MBA.
I know you know him and Nate Robinson and and spot Web.
I mean, if you have Nate and spotted Mog Z may, I'll tell you what we'll be one hell of a dunk contest, right? Ah, but you know what happened? We were talking about Vince Carter, that that's how we got on the old school stuff I saw about Vince Carter.
How amazed I am that he's still able to play this game for two years old.
And he still has ups, which is amazing to me, you know, And And he went back to the 2007 again.
And, you know, our 2001 with that shot.
Okay, you know, looks like Game seven all over again against Toronto, which are bringing up T. Mac.
And then, you know, I I went from T.
Max and I started about John Moran and, you know, and you see what I posted earlier Because John Moran has just taken over in the n b a right now.
And you know what I know is I honest hurt, and I was I on the highlight reel, but all around game wise, if you're not watching job and I'll tell you what your missus on the beauty right now and he's just beginning.
He's just beginning, and I and I think I know it's early.
We're four games and right.
But if you're talking about conditioning and you're talking about overall player ability and sky's the limit, I still think Joss skies hard as ions.
I still d'oh! I don't get those eye on LeBron.
Debate the debate.
I mean, me and my boy coach.
They even we do the heat ratio podcasts and we get into it and he's a big Zion is is gonna be better than LeBron and I I don't I don't got it. Exactly.
Well, you're right, will not let listen.
I know it's cliche and I said it before, but I mean Grandmama.
Larry Johnson, right? Larry Johnson came in this, like the same kind of form, right? Same kind of form.
I still kept saying the whole time when people were killed me when I said I would take barrier or I would take Moran number one over Zion, they call me.
I'm not, You know, this guy doesn't always talking about, but, you know, Zion's to get lost.
Where does he play? That was my biggest thing with his body type, and you know him go forward.
Number one does the last number, too.
What? You know what? What is his sky? What? You know what comes next for Zion, right? I already know what I'm going to get and what the future holds for a guy like job.
And that's why I would have took that guy, because I think in today's M B A.
It's funny because, you know, it's almost like what we were talking about a few years ago with a well, right, and what is it? Wait, today's MBA.
You know, it's not about big men, you know.
It's not about pig men.
You can't have two big men on this team, right? You know, and essentially, we talk about science, not the same thing, like he's not today's MBA.
John Moran or is a Barrett Are today's MBA, right? They're there to protest Able T.
Mac and I, and I keep bringing up this question all the time for everybody who consistently tells me that I'm nuts.
I asked them, Do the draft right now.
And if I tell you it's just listen for sake of argument, if I tell you Zion is Larry Johnson and R.
Barrett and John Moran, R T.
Mac, Who would you rather have Tracy McGrady or would you rather have his eye on And just remember something? If Tracy McGrady doesn't have microfracture surgery and doesn't have the issue with his knees, Tracy McGrady even plays longer.
Okay, which gives me remorse, Statistical data to back that up.
Zion doesn't even have a lengthy bouncing between exactly that.
And that's what I I have an issue.
Really? D'oh! Ah, listen, king, this Candace, we're cleaning those air stuff, boy.
That's what I love talking.
Can we get a show together? We're gonna get a show together, and we're gonna talk MBA off every game.
Okay? Once a week were to get this together because, ah, you people haven't even been hit with this knowledge that I don't think you have any idea.
Trust me off the background.
I mean, her both have a look.
She's she's got a wingspan on me, right? She's going wingspan.
What is he going exactly what is going to go? Absolutely right.
I mean, that Duncan can only lay so long, right? Did you know the highlight reel? Currently is someone and and honestly, when we see a highlight reel and cane is, please tell me this is a stretch, but it's what goes through my head, right? It will go through.
My head is and listen, These guys, please understand.
Everybody's watching now, everybody that's watching on the stream on Twitter and para scope and everybody that's actually you're gonna watch us tomorrow. Please understand.
I'm not comparing these guys and saying their their talent wise, just like.
But when you had Jordan, you had Dominique, right? You had Jordan, who was a finesse player who developed that ridiculous fade away.
That was defensive prowess, right? Dominique Wilkins was a human highlight reel because of what? The windmill dunk, the two hand jam.
He consistently got to the rim and throw the ball down.
But answer that.
What did he do? And, you know, it's almost like Zion, right? It's the same kind of deal.
Is I on a human highlight reel? But that's it.
Where are J Barrier or John Marais can do anything they want in the game of basketball, and that's what I have.
That's the issue that I have, Woods eye on.
You know, I think he's good for the MBA.
Obviously, it's a great story, you know.
He comes from Ah, highly credentialed program.
And Duke, we all know we know that background.
You know, I'm not saying that he's not gonna be good, eh? NBA player.
I'm just saying that if you're building a franchise in today's MBA, I just don't think Zion's the way to go.
I don't, um he's already hurt.
You see it already.
You know, his body is not going to take this beating, so ah, you know.
But the sky's the limit for the MBA right now.
It came this we talked about.
He's great backing down boys.
You can't last amongst men.
That is a great statement.
Back in the homeboys, it can't last amongst man.
And we were told about today's m B. A.
You know, I was talking about Trey Young, who really has built himself up, you know, he took a lot of flack.
Yeah, the kid's a gunner.
I I wasn't gonna write.
We We lived with the eye in this town and we were taught a I can't consistently was told his body wouldn't handle it.
He, you know he is shooting was just so ridiculous.
Not a form, you know, he didn't play a full get listen, eh? I took the city by storm and Trey Young has really worked on his discipline.
And I'll tell you what, you could tell right now that whoever he worked with wheat, no, to perfect his shop and, you know, perfected discipline will when to shoot the ball when to give it up.
That's why the Atlanta Hawks team and I know he hurt his ankle in his day to day.
And I hope I hope it's nothing serious.
But what I'm saying is, you know, it's right.
You got the trail, right? So I know what you meant.
But, ah, what? I like to see if he gets those players involved so much out there.
And that's just going to continue to grow on that team.
Ah, which is gonna be nice and again.
There's so much young talent infusing the MBA Lucas logic.
I heard Shawn breaks a earlier.
He's his pick for his M v p.
Ah, you know, that's a bold statement, But I'll tell you what that kid can play, man, if you have a ah, healthy present gets out there.
I'll tell you what, Dallas.
Mark Cuban's gonna be jumping for joy out there, right? I mean, there's so much young talent in the n b A.
And that's why I cannot wait to meet Candace.
Can get on a weekly basis, are talking about this stuff because we could probably go 20 minutes on each game just talking about the young talent that we're about to see in the n b A.
And, you know, the MBA had it had a period where went real stale for awhile, right? It went real. Stay on.
It was a very watchable I said it where, honestly, it wasn't very watchable.
But now the MBA today Okay, there's, You know, you could turn any Western Conference game and you could you know, you you can enjoy it.
Even the Eastern Conference.
Okay, You see what? Kyrie Irving Still with no team out there in Brooklyn with no team? Okay, Curries laughing it Boston right now, right, Kyra, is Les Infinite Boston saying, Go ahead, sign Camber, go inside Camera.
Kyra is laughing at them right now.
So call every best ball handler in the lake.
I mean, I don't I don't know if anybody disagrees with me or not, but he is the best ball handling the rate. R.
J. Barrett Looking nice.
He absolutely is RG about.
Isn't that the biggest thing that I took away from R.
Barrett is He's a professional, right? When you heard his interviews when you heard him after the draft, it hurt the kid.
What he said, I just want to come in here, play basketball, all right? That's the one to do.
And you could tell his policy.
You could tell that he has a You know, it has great sound, uh, you know, background behind or whether his parents, his grandparent's Ah, but you could just tell that this kid wants coming in New York.
He you know, he respects the nostalgia he does.
He he respects the history, but he wants to make it his team.
And you know what? Hats off to him because, you know, Madison Square Garden is the most procedures play most prestigious place to play in the N B.
A basketball game.
And for him to be the own, that to him, the common air, work hard and be that guy.
It's something great that we're gonna get to see.
What? I'm very excited.
I mean, listen, I'm excited to see Hard and Westbrook play together. I'm not.
Listen, I am not a huge heart and feign I'm not a huge Westbrook fan, but I'm curious what they're going to do together.
I cannot wait till Paul Paul George has even play Jeopardy Clippers and their dominant with Kal Ei.
Listen, Lu Watson Toronto Raptors game Now with alkali, they have nothing.
They have nothing.
See aacm don't get not stop without coli Leonard Toronto Raptors are seven or eight seed in the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
If you think otherwise, you're out of your god**** mind, okay? You really are Kawai is why they got the trophy, right? That's listen.
That's why we want to know why, right? That's why every team in the n b.
Wanted Kawai because they knew that he was the key to an M b A championship.
And he got what they wanted in Toronto So this year's MBA It's been fantastic.
I can't wait to talk about this more.

Our own kind of Sixers outsiders brain, you know, obviously needed something different, but something where we could bring the MBA action the you Because I don't think there's enough.
