Ah, we're back again, man.
I'm telling you, I don't know what is going on here.
This camera I got going on go acting funny, man.
Hopefully get everybody back in here.
Uh, I mean, let me tweak this back out.
Ah, a and get everybody up to speed home.
Ah, let's let's get this way.
You alive? I tell you about one second.
We'll get everybody back in.
All right, now we're getting there.
I don't now we're getting there.
Give me one second, people.
I apologize, All right? I think we're good.
I now we're back.
Hey, what's up, man? Air By joining and listen, I had I had a bunch of people when I apologized and some difficult technical difficulties.
Uh, you know, I apologized for that.
I hope it doesn't happen again.
I, for some reason, my camera's been phenomenal for the last two years and all of a sudden, over the last week, it wants to go back and forth on me, Wants to go out on I don't understand.
So I'm gonna try to keep it here and see if I could pick up everybody that was back.
Ah, you know, hopefully they get back in here so we could talk about We were we were talking about the Sixers win, Obviously much needed win.
We're talking about the ongoing saga of Matisse.
Sybil, Why? He is not playing.
I don't understand.
And I honestly feel actually weird about it, because, I mean, I legitimately have compared this kid so young Scottie Pippen, because I thought he was that special defensively, he was, You know, a lot of people forget about Scottie Pippen and forget that he was a defense of monster, you know, with him and Jordan.
That's why they were so good, because he was so good on the defensive side of the ball.
Okay, that was a big deal.
So I Matisse to me has that same kind off, you know, moxie about it, saying kind of skills saying And and I'm not sure what's going on with Matisse, I don't know if he's in a doghouse for some reason, but, you know, for some reason, he was go rams.
We gotta ran's fan entering the building here.
You know, this is a Philadelphia.
So right now I'm just kidding.
We talked everything that national we talked at local.
It's all good ones.
Mass away. Yeah.
Uh, I must have your reins win today or not.
That was a tough game in Pittsburgh.
I thought they should Ah, they came out on top.
I can't remember.
I was too busy watching that Packers game.
What I did, I did start to imagine earlier was about Al Horford.
And, you know, I bet about Al Horford being, you know, phenomenal as number one as your second big guy.
Number two as your veteran and number three is your star.
And it was a great signing.
And, you know, I've talked about that.
I Iive thank Elton brand openly for assigning of that magnitude something that we really, really need it desperately on this team.
Especially when you got guys like Ben and Jo.
Well, hopefully get everybody joining back.
I I got some people back.
Hopefully they see Ah that the other stream is down.
I started a new one, so hopefully we'll get into that.
But you know Trey Burke, I think there's a lot of energy.
I really like what trade brings and and I know this is for the people.
And I'm not gonna match the name because I don't do that.
Ah, the bucks are winning either.
My Milwaukee guy.
It's gonna be the box in the six years I'm telling you, Nick, I'm telling you, it is gonna be the box.
And *** is at the end.
It is a Greek freak against Joe, and we'll see what happens.
Ah, by, um, you know, I know a lot of people gave me a lot of flack, but the whole tray birthing i'ma Trey Burke, I I think when you see when a court, obviously you lose a little in defense compared to what that so may bring.
But haven't we been here already? Haven't we being here, you know? Listen, if you want the game that the *** is only one by eight, but the issue is they actually they were up by 19 with two minutes left, right? With two minutes off, they were up by 19.
So you got to think of that again.
You gotta think if this was a good win, I I mean, listen, you know, they definitely were back, But the problem is, you know, I would have liked him to see a be a little more.
Ah, little more dominant.
I think they let that the Hornets hang around way too much.
Ah, but, you know, at the end, I mean, Zeller had a lot of open shots as he shoots like 28% from three.
I mean, he was doing well tonight.
So, you know, you could see the difference when Joe was out, when they had kind of the bench.
And I mean, like, Scott was got kind of quiet tonight for Khan. Had a great game.
We told about that 17 points off the bench.
Ahh, you know, Hey, listen, he Ah, it's it's It's almost again 10 and I have talked about this before.
Brown's a rotation guy, right? You know, he he likes to fit the pieces to the puzzle.
So he's gonna go in that ghost hanging Spain.
You're going to see who gives him the best.
The best option, the wind.
That's what he's going to do.
And you know that that that becomes bench guys that become starters.
Ah, you know, switching.
Listen, maybe the experiment, I hope Ah, West Minutessilence said earlier about the Josh Richardson point guard experiment.
Hopefully, that's over.
I don't think Josh is a point guard.
Obviously, I think he's better suited to the problem is when he plays the two.
He doesn't have the offensive firepower as a two guard, right? So that's what you miss.
That's what you miss with him.
Ah, but besides that, you know that it was a pretty good game.
It was a pretty again.
I'm trying to get some people back in here giving one second, because we were Ah, we had a lot of good people in here, and I'm trying to get them back.
Um, I will come back.
But Matisse Eyeball, we got what we got to get to the Matisse eyeball situation.
I I'm not sure what's going on with ease that there's there's been something over the last.
Probably three or four games has been brewing that I'm not sure I gonna take this week, You know, we got a game Monday, we got a game.
Ah, against Cleveland.
But I kind of break down and figure out what is actually going on with the Sybil is a is a learning curve thing.
Is the rookie thing is in the doghouse for some specific reason.
You know that it's a band.
Not like what he has in Matisse.
Uh, you know, there's something going on, and I'm not sure really what it is.
Were you break down his team, We'll see when bang comes back.
But you could You could definitely see difference.
When Ben is not on the court, they miss his speed.
They missed the spacing because of him on the court.
They really d'oh! Ah, that's been one of the biggest issues with him.
Okay, when it went when he's out, you know, even though he's not taking that jumper, which we so desperately needs to do that 15 20 foot shop to bring that defender close to him and said laying him out, that's not giving him that proper space that my girl, Candace MacLean, had mentioned before.
Okay, I'm telling it, that is that's key, But just not having his speed up and down the court, I think, is the difference.
Now, you know, here's the difference between Trey Burke in and rolling that So Morocco natto is on the court.
Okay? Yes, he is better defensively.
He and he does like the bring the ball up pretty quick.
But I think he doesn't have the handle like Trey, as I think. Definitely.
I think I like Trey shot better in that sounds.
I think it's more consistent.
I think you've seen the one play at the end of the half when Trey had the ball when he dribble, drive and he where he went from Point A to Point B so fast and got James and it's that that open look before the end of the half, That's something that's what doesn't do.
Okay, so that's why I'd rather listen. I'd rather flip.
In my opinion, they start.
You know, Ben's not gonna play start tray and have not open with the bats.
I'm not a big net, Oh, start trick on the bench sky.
That's all I'm saying.
So for all of your killing me, about killing me about the Trey Burke thing, which is like, you know, people need to calm down, man, calm down, slow down.
We all have opinions.
We all have opinions, and sometimes we don't always agree with those opinions, right.
But that's what makes the world of sports talk and the world of podcasting so great that we can get on the microphone and we could talk.
We could give our opinions that we can agree or we get disagree.
Doesn't really matter, right? You know, at the time everybody think, Listen, everybody thinks they're right, right? And that's that's what life's all about.
Whether you're married, whether you're single.
Well, you're talking to your kids.
Whether your work, everybody thinks they're right.
And that's nothing wrong with that.
My issue is Think you're right.
Stand by your opinion.
Be passionate about it.
Be informational about it.
And don't be willing to back down, okay? And that's one thing I will never, ever dough.
And don't mistake that for being angry.
Take that for being this disrespectful.
Okay? What? That is okay.
What that specifically is it just me being a passionate and me being strong willed and me being comfortable with my own opinions? That being said, that being said, I you know, I seen a lot of people.
A lot of people, I think, was Kendrick Parkins came out all about trading Ben Simmons.
First of all, let's let's think about something.
Who is training for Ben Simmons right now.
And what do you even attempted to get back for Ben Simmons? I mean, if you were gonna trade Ben Simmons, you trade Ben Simmons before you sign a month of that mace of extension.
That's what you do.
You don't You don't train Ben Simmons now.
I think that's ridiculous.
I I don't think I I think that that logic is Jada and again my opinion okay, 100.
Parkins has his own opinion.
I don't think he was Really? If, you know, informative about it.
I don't think you had enough credence behind to say why he would trade Ben Simmons.
Okay, but for this team right now, this is Ben and Jo Show.
Okay? It's been in Joe Show, and the one thing that has to happen is Tobias has to be the number three we've been talking about, that, eh? Okay, game.
And I'm not great.
I still see too many missed open threes once a bias.
Something that he knocked down consistency when he whether he was in Detroit, whether he was in l.
A he not the sat down consistency, so I'm not really sure what happened to Tobias? Gets a Twitter questions.
Ah, So I want to hear about Mitty.
Everybody's wanted about Matisse.
Listen, I wanted about Matisse too.
I really am, because I don't know what the heck is going all of Matisse.
So trust me, I'm gonna try to get back and figure out what is going on.
Whit miti's? Because that is Ah, very interesting question, Mike Scott.
We'll be back, My Scott, we'll be back home.
Just tweeting. Grow fast.
All right, now go forward.
Going for Farrakhan has really starting to develop.
And you know one thing about Farrakhan.
And again, my pain was not a Furqan gone.
It consistently said, Listen, I'm not sold.
I'm not so into your plan, not listen, He don't make no mistake about it here he's not. Look at the Montague.
And if anybody is wanting to look pedantic and seeing what exactly Luca Dante has been doing right now in the n.
I'll tell you what, it's absolutely insane.
Okay, if you've been watching the Dallas Mavericks and seeing what he can do, so it's it's actually must see TV.
Okay, it really is.
But for Con is not Lucozade.
OK, so scoring leaders, We're getting a look into that.
I mean, we're getting a ****ing amend so far kind of night for 14 17 points.
That is a great showing for Furqan.
If Mark I can give you hang 15 on a consistent basis and maybe throw a 20 spot in there every now and then I think I could look past his defense a little bit because I think if you look past his defense, you can cover that up a little bit more.
The problem is, you know, whenever I see him, sometimes he looks lost.
He looks like he doesn't know where where to be.
Okay, he looks like, you know, he's running around the court looking for the open shot like it's funny.
And I know I got killed for this, but I always said he felt like the pick up kid that you picked up in a black top game or down the park because that's what we did.
That's high ball when I was a kid.
Okay, you pick a little park and you had a pick up game.
You had 10 kids in the final five.
You're going through Hey, I want Johnny. I won't, Luke.
And then for key was the guy. It was like.
You know what, man? Just give me ****ing you.
Grab for you said, Listen, I don't know playing defense.
I know you don't have any school that way.
I know you get an open shot of ring down that Do me a favor, run the floor, pick a corner on the three point line and get ready and hit the open shot.
And that's what Mark on is, too.
That's what he is to me.
But he's starting to get better.
That's what I like about it.
He's starting to get better in time, right in time.
So I know I have to be patient and people have to be patient, Okay? But I just think, you know, we we need to be careful that we don't fall in love with him, and it's our call for him to be playing more and more minutes.
We don't wanna overexpose for calm.
Well, I'll be 18 points.
I I thought Joel was with the way you started out.
I thought he was gonna own this game, right.
There's an onus game because he was taking what was given to him, which was down the block.
He was that they had nobody, absolutely nobody that could consistently guard Jo Ellan be okay.
They really didn't.
So the problem with that was, you know, he started to get away from that a little bit.
Okay, But then the gang, I lo out of hand.
So I you know, Brett was kind of watching his minutes a little bit here and there.
So, you know, it's hard to really judge.
What I need to judge from Joelle is I need to watch him go up against the best centers in the league.
I need them to go up against the best defense is in the league, and I think that's where the Sixers to me are gonna prove they're worth.
And I think that's maybe the biggest issue I have because it's great when you play Charlotte.
When you play Cleveland, it's, you know it's great.
Even Boston, for that matter right now.
What? Speaking of Boston, what a tough break.
What? It's half break for Gordon Hayward again.
I will say that what? I got no ill will towards N B.
a players on different teams.
Except LeBron is another LeBron guy.
Okay, But I would never I would never call it ill will or, you know, wish ill will on anybody but Gordon Hayward's This has not had the luck control now and now he's out again, You know, Another another broken bone.
I mean, just this This kid just can't catch a break.
But I want to see what we're gonna do against the West.
That's the problem.
We can win these games against the east, which are fine.
Uh, I mean, absolutely.
We can win this game because the east, But when we get to the West, that's where we gotta win the games.
Okay? The West is a competition, okay? We're not always playing a bucks.
You always find the Pacers and one always playing.
You know, I'll say laced your celtics, OK, But right now we need to see what our competition is against the West.
And we played the east.
I expect us to win.
Okay, I expect us to win handily, too.
And that's not actually happening.
Listen, we didn't go lie.
I didn't go live and we didn't talk about Listen, I'm telling you right now.
A girl aged Texan.
Sorry about the stream earlier.
Because I know what happened.
I was I was telling everybody, you know, join Everybody in my camera went out on what was going on, so I kind of have reset things, but I want to get I want to get back to you, Your Matisse, The eyeball question I talked about earlier because I was just going through my mind like, what is going on? You know? And I mention this because we came into this earlier and we specific, you know, in the year.
And he was he was our six men off the bench and we were so excited about my teeth.
We were so excited.
We he was getting four steals a game.
He would, you know, And we could see in the first couple weeks, we definitely seeing that he was getting the foul trouble early.
He was energetic, e he gave us that energy that that we sorely missed on this team.
And now now exactly what? Offense to grow. Absolutely.
And and that's the thing.
Listen, that's exactly what I was saying.
And that's why maybe you'll tell me if you agree with me or not.
But I was telling everybody iconic I compare him to a younger Scotty Piven.
When Scottie Pippen came in this league, he didn't always have the shot.
Scotty had the defense.
People forget that he was a solid saw, all defensive team player, just like Michael.
Okay, that's what made those bulls. Seems so great.
Okay, Matisse has that skill.
Okay? He concluded that he can develop that shot.
Right? And that's what I'm.
But I think Brant Brant loses focus too much with young players, eh? Yeah.
I don't know what it is, and it's funny you said because you have Joe.
Well, you have been right that they're young, but But when they're not superstars, not budding superstars, the guys, they actually need the clarity.
Like he just I think he gives up too early sometimes.
And I hope that he's not doing that. Meticulous.
He did not stop talking about Matisse the whole offseason.
He didn't stop talking about him.
And you know now for Matisse to barely get any play, I don't get it Exactly.
We always know that present always had issues his and we talked about that earlier.
We talked about his.
His rotation's right.
We talked about, you know, what is he going to do going forward with, you know, You know, he's, like, 8 to 10 game guy, right? 8 to 10 games, you figures out okay, what works and what doesn't.
Okay, my issue is, you know, right away Ben Simmons goes out and you put in that so right away to start, which is fine.
But he played 30 minutes in Denver.
Why does that have to play 30 minutes? I don't think he's 1/3.
He's never been a 30 minute guy so bright.
You can not overexposed these players, okay? And he did that.
Remember last year? He did that with TJ, and I hope he's not falling into the same trap.
And I was wondering why Trey Burke would he get a sweatshirt all from off the bench? And it took Ben Simmons that get hurt fur trade to get some looks.
And you see the difference, in my opinion, between Trey Burke and Raul net.
So you see the difference.
Okay, I I just don't understand it.
You know Burke Parker's of old. Wow, you went.
That is deep bark is a baby.
I listen, he I met earlier, and I know he wants again like I did, right? So right at the half, when you seeing that they had about seven seconds and he took it coast to coast and gave it the Ennis for the dribble drive for the lay up.
And you were like, Well, it was ridiculous right into May your I mean, you could see the speed.
You're absolutely right.
Listen, that's the energy he brings, and that's what we miss.
And that's what I don't understand.
Even I'm so disappointed, what's a bias hours? I really am.
And I know a lot of people, you know, when they tell me I'm too hard on the guy and you know, when I talk about his money and is more I worry about the money, Okay, I'm not worried because the market is the market and there's nothing I have nothing to do with that.
My issue with Tobias is again.
I need him to be more consistent if you're going to be the number three scorer are actually the number to score.
Okay, you're you're the second option in this offense.
Ben's not number two.
Joe's number one.
Tobias has to be number two, and Tobias is not playing like a number two.
He's still too indecisive.
I don't know what it is and, you know, I I don't understand what happened to his three point consistency.
He shot the ball so much better when he first came here in the beginning and when he was in L. A.
And for some reason, that has disappeared.
And Tobias is not and he's listen, he's getting the open looks tonight.
He had two wide open threes, right at the top of the key, kind of like left center and he break both off and I'm gonna be about Brick is get the front of the rim. Short arms.
I don't understand fear. Set.
He's got the rotation.
He's just not what I expect.
He's got to do better.
He's got to do better.
Listen, he has to be a 20 to 25 point score consistently on this team.
He has to pay. Okay.
If he's not, we're where's are often so they come from.
Josh Richardson is a nice young player for what he is But if you think Josh Richardson isn't a common here and dropped 20 every night, you're sadly mistaken.
Okay, Ben Simmons is not gonna drop 20 every night.
Right? And here's another thing that bothers me about this team and again.
Listen, people, when I say this, I'm not saying like, Oh, I'm out right.
Tobias is timid, but, well, dunk.
But he's he's timid, but out of no, you're right.
But see what you just said out of nowhere, well bunkered.
I want more of that.
I want more of that dribble drive and that, you know, I want Maur going down the lane, cutting through defenders throne.
He has the size and he has the ability.
But for some reason, I just feel like, you know he doesn't do it enough.
I don't want to hear that he's lost in this offense, but for what I was, what I was trying to get to is, did we ever feel like this team paces two months and I like moving a ball around, but I feel like there's no multiple times tonight and it's on everybody you know when they have open looks and they give them up and they constantly they're trying to do a little two months and they want to turn the ball over.
Well, you know, we see this a lot with this team, and I I like that the vision of moving the ball round, I like division of, you know, to get the open shot.
But there's a lot of times when they have one or two open looks and they don't consistently take the shot.
I need them to take the shop.
That's what I need. I need them to take the shop.
Okay? That's all I want.
I want more of that now.
He had a bad night.
Okay, so I like what he did.
The end, like, you know, when Hey, he passed the Furqan and for I think, for comedy, the shot and one time he pays.
So we missed a shot, right? That was good.
Basically, he's saying, just like, you know, Zoom all set here, young man.
You're shooting shot, right? You got the hot rock tonight.
That's fine, but too much Are we trying to pass too much? In my opinion, just my pain.
Uh, al Horford, go back to El Al is the most important part of this team. He is.
Ah, you know, Mikey.
But he got a couple of afterwards. Yeah, he did.
They got a couple of garbage shots, which is good.
Ah, you know, you like to see it.
Listen, I did not expect, You know, it's funny.
This is when you know the team isn't clicking on all cylinders Yet when we're worried about Mike Scott hitting hitting threes Mike Scott, when I'm weak, stock comes off the bench.
I'm not saying Wow, thank I'm likely to bring that offense right.
Thank money's gonna bring that three.
I don't need like to do that.
Mike is a defensive stalwart.
He's an attitude guy not to take take away from John Seen.
He's an attitude adjustment.
When I when I told about bully ball that they got away from when I talked about that Detroit bad boys back in the nineties, right? But that's not exactly what he would say.
Like like he did he Absolutely.
They like as I like that.
Listen, he is my Rick Mahorn on this team.
I did not expect.
Listen, Rick Mahorn when he came in for Detroit, he wasn't coming in to hit shots.
He wasn't coming in to hit trays.
He was coming in with an attitude.
He was like, Remember eggs? A ver McDaniel? Okay, all those next team's Anthony Mason.
These guys that came in with attitudes that they came in to do.
Okay, they came in to set a tone when we when we needed a spark and not an offensive spark.
Ah, spark of an attitude, A spark of an identity.
That's what money Scott brings.
That's why he's important role of the bats.
James Ennis that James Ennis has to give me.
Ben scored, right? So I expect things, and it's to be able to hit a couple shots and be able to get down.
You know, hit the perimeter. J.
Okay, send a couple screens and play some good defense.
I expect that from James Ennis, but Mike Scott, if I'm sitting here saying we lost because Mike's got was cold, that we have issues on this team because we cannot sit there and say that we need like Scott to carry our offensive gain.
Okay, we just can't uh, we'll see when Ben comes back.
I think, in my opinion, I think they hold them back against Cleveland.
I doubt he plays against Cleveland.
I really think that Cleveland got nice on team, okay, but I really don't think that, you know he's gonna play against them.
It was Yes, he was. He was a high head.
Listen, I know it's funny.
I love the nineties error, the late eighties early nineties, when you want some of them teams.
I mean, listen, you look at some of those teams with the with the bad boy players that they had, the bully players that they add.
I mean guys, that they couldn't hit shots all the time.
But I'll tell you what, man.
They get in your head.
That would definitely I mean, obviously down.
It's Robin Wright, that is.
Ron was the all time bamboo.
Robin was the only guy, in my opinion, that could play Shack one on one with his little A's.
Going up against Shack was unbelievable.
One a one against, and that was amazing to make right.
The worm was remember, I remember when my dad would really screaming, yelling at the TV.
Oh, yeah, Absolutely.
Listen, I mean, that was my error, and that was my air.
And that's why I'm a Jordan guide and LeBron guy.
Okay, But when you look at that air, you look the toughness that they add, even of Portland teams in the nineties.
Uh, you know, that played against Jordan. Okay.
When you had Jerome Corsi.
Jerome Kersee, you go back.
Look at your own currency.
Look at Buck Williams.
Those guys, they were tough dudes down in the paint.
Okay, so they didn't need Portland in E.
You know, James Cursi and Buck Williams.
They carried him.
Or, you know, they had Terry Porter and Clyde Drexler.
They were the guys that carried that team.
And they were supposed to be the guys.
The carrot that seemed just like the Knicks, You know, Patrick Ewing.
All right, these are guys that were, you know, instant offense, guys.
Not sure Will Smith not eggs a viewer McDaniel These weren't the guys they looked at for offense.
They were the enforcers.
Nuts I need from like, Scott.
Listen, this Spence is gonna have to go 90 maybe 10.
When it comes to the playoffs, okay? And I I actually think it's gonna have to go nine deep even sooner because you're gonna go nights.
You know, you're gonna have to have night, Terry.
They have inside Al yet which has really surprised me because I know a lot of people are on this low management thing.
A lot of people are on, you know, And I know Jordan came out, you know, because I mention this because we played Charlotte and he said, You know, back in my day, guys, you know, we didn't have all these rest days and this and that.
Listen, I understand that I do, but you have to look at the air.
That worry, and you have to look at you know, the way people have changed again.
Listen, Coli letter has been doing it for years.
Popovich has been doing it for years, so I just want to spread Wednesday, I'll get a break.
And maybe Alice is I don't want a break, but here's the thing.
I keep saying this, we're gonna need him.
So if Kyle O'Quinn has to play a couple games, okay with Jonah Bolden, I'm okay with that.
Sticking for the East, right? Maybe the Cleveland game.
I didn't get a couple of young guys are playing pretty well.
But at the end of the day, I need these guys to be at the end because I think that was one of the biggest issues that we had last year.
And I really don't I really don't want that to happen.
Ah, let's say I got What do you think about you got Josh Richardson only had 11 points.
Shoots four for nine again.
I I'm not, you know, not eaten on Josh.
It all trademark four of eight for 12 points.
You had some buys.
6 to 9 shooting Al Horford, 79 15.
I mean, it was a good game.
It was spread around six years.
Have more to work with this year.
Just even understands. Roger.
Yup. I completely agree.
Uh, completely greatest Sixers definitely have more.
Okay, they have more than they had last year.
And, you know, they listen, they really wanted call Korver that fill that bench role, okay? They really want to conquer.
Ah, But again, it wasn't that we didn't do enough to get Kyle.
It was that he picked Milwaukee because he knew he was to get more minutes up there.
So, you know, that's when the decision came that Furqan needs to step up.
Cork Mas needs to be that shooter that we need off the bench and and so far so far, he's doing it.
Josh is good, but not always on.
Josh is a like I said or I said this earlier for you.
It's still growing.
Okay? The biggest thing about Josh is he's got natural athletic ability, right? And you can't teach that.
He's got great defensive prowess as well.
You see him, him a tease together.
I'll tell you what.
They could just tear things up, especially up in the front court.
That's what they can do.
And that's what I like about Josh.
But again, just like we're talking earlier, right, Josh, if we're looking for Josh, scored 20 points, that that's not gonna happen, that's how we win.
That's it, you know, and I'm not gonna compare it on the Golden State.
Right? But if you look at the way the Golden State Warriors were constructed, I mean, it just shows you how awesome they were.
But at the end of the day, Steph, Clay and Cady, we're the guys, right? If you're looking for dream on the score 30 every game, then your role.
That wasn't Raymond's role.
If you were looking for Andre Egon, how to call it the bench and score 30 every game, there's an issue.
No, you have to look at your three guys.
You have to look at your scores.
Okay, so if Joe's off and Tobias is off and Al's off, we're in trouble.
Okay? But only because this team isn't deep enough to recover that.
But what team is and that's my that.
That's what I'm saying.
So what are the odds that have all three those guys off at one time? That's why, though I need Maur from Tobias because he's that important on his team, I consistently say, If you watch my videos and you follow me, you know, I I told you.
I need him to be Bradley Beal.
I need him to step up just like Bradley building.
Answer his second or third year.
That's on the outs of eyes.
Bradley Beal was consistent and listen, I heard somebody say, Let's trade Ben Simmons for Bradley Beal.
That Listen, I am not You know this over the top.
Ben Simmons is going to be the best player in the world kind of guy, but to trade him for practically Beale, I thought was ridiculous.
That that that that just can't happen, right? That just can't have Alice go back over and be What? What are he? And indeed on the floor at the same time, I I like him and then be on the floor, the Saints on, even though it's not gonna happen a lot.
But I think what? It does it, I mean, think about it.
You have those two down there.
You have been looking the size right.
You have been at the top.
All these guys, I mean there.
I mean, these air monsters okay, And Joel over seven foot.
Right? So these air monster so that the best thing about al is out is such a great screener that he could do so much when I came in and beat her on the floor together.
Just when the screen game.
I don't want them both get Yeah, you're right.
And that's exactly I was saying earlier.
That's why I I still think Well, you know, Listen, we know Ben are Bret.
You and I both know Ben.
I'm Brett and his tendencies, right? You know, Joelle is always gonna come out seven minutes.
He comes out the seven minute mark in the first quarter.
We know what he thought was right.
He comes out and usually doesn't come back in.
And so the beginning of the 2nd 2nd quarter.
Ah, you know, unless we get really behind, he needs All right, That's what is huge with Al Horford.
Because remember last year, you know, you had Jonah Bolden and Amir Johnson.
Oh, and that's it.
That's on your hat.
So you you didn't have that luxury of being able to move somebody to the center position and bringing in a guy like it seems in his arm, like Scott or Matisse.
Sybil, you didn't have that luxury, right? So that's why Al Horford issues. You're right.
And you don't want them to get hired.
You know, I I hope that they do this 10 game system and they they sit down with Alice, okay? How you feeling? Conditioning wise? Because we definitely need out todo deep in the playoffs II surely feel we will be in the n b A finals.
Ah, but listen, you know, I I've said this before and I'll say it again.
Okay, tonight was a game. You win.
The Denver was a Denver game is a game.
And let's talk about that Denver game.
Roll fast before we get out of here.
That Denver game was a disgrace to me to lose a game that was This Creek's okay.
You cannot give up a 21 point lead.
You just can't do it in 1/4 that I'll tell you why.
Again, That is not the way you play basketball.
And, you know, for all the people worry about that last foul on joke, it's that they called or Ownby own and be that should have been on joke.
It's okay with the flop.
I don't even care about that.
You should never been put in that situation.
You got away from everything that was working OK, way too many jump shots.
Way to cares of the ball.
And this is what annoys me about Brett Brown because we have been talking about the turnovers for the last two years.
We have been talking about being careless and Lisi with the basketball for the last two years, and these are the times it bites us in the S a time you have to win these games.
You have to win the Utah game.
You have to win the Denver game because guess what I understand.
In the East, we don't have AH Thanh of competition.
But my problem is those two games could be the difference between us going.
Hey, what do you want to dio? Do you want to go to the Eastern Conference finals or do you want to go to the N B A Finals? Because those games could be the difference between those two.
And and that's my biggest thing.
And that's why I learned from this early.
Okay, learn from this early because you cannot consistently turn the ball over and give up 21 point leads.
It just It just can't happen.
It just can't happen.
You know, we'll see what happens with Ben.
We'll see what the injury comes back.
I still think you missed a couple wargames.
Ah, but I think you know.
Listen, we're six and three now.
We'll see what happens in next week or so.
Ah, you know, I'm curious to see what happens.
I'm curious to see what comes out of that.
I'm curious to see what the minutes look like when Ben comes back.
Because I don't see how Brett Brown could keep Trey Burke on the bench.
And now Planet all I still think you have to get him some minutes.
And if that if that even means put them in for Josh Richardson every down, then I think that's something that he may have to look at.
Ah, but again, Thanks.
Everybody joining in.
I apologize for the first treatment.
About seven minutes.
Camera went out, froze up on me.
I had to redo the whole thing.
