I didn't welcome.
Welcome to JD, Rance. Rum Boys Central.
I can never do that. Okay.
Um uh, I appreciate you running up to this up, so we're gonna talk about a bunch of random ****.
I'll be I'll be right back.
What do you need? You need something.
Well, then please be quiet.
You can talk to me.
You were You're far more anyone.
I like your ****ing respect.
I never get yours.
Hey, what's up, guys? How's it going? Caught management.
How's it going from Lonnie? I appreciate you joining us.
Um, Luke Adams writes on hoops rumors dot com that more than 48 hours after news broke that the Knicks had parted ways with head coach David Fizdale, the team released a formal statement on Sunday night that expanded its initial bare bones announcement from Friday, albeit not slide much quote.
The New York Knicks organization would like to think David Fizdale for for his leadership and his professionalism over the past two seasons.
The new statement read Quote.
He represented the organization with nothing but class.
We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
Sunday's press conference press release, including longer statement by by physical himself, who take the team's president, Ah, Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry and owner James Don't the opportunity to coach the Knicks and express gratitude to their fans for their passion and commitment.
Typically, when a team issues a statement like the one York it on Sunday, it's attributed to the head of basketball operations or the owner.
However, the next press release on Fizdale notably didn't mention bills, as Mark Berman of The New York Post points out, which may be another signal that the team president is on shaky ground.
Here is more on the next bubble.
Going postal stuff goes on.
I love it when Stephen A gets is getting fist.
Thanks for joining us clock management.
Appreciate it that much, bro.
We're just talking basketball as usual on Rome Boy Central next door, A complete joke or franchise.
They really are, dude.
And what we'll get into my article that I just wrote about them just explaining, um, a few things about David Fizdale and their release will hop onto that right now in Rome boys dot com Um, the Knicks.
Man, it's just really sad, because they just can't seem to figure it out.
It seems like they have just, ah, bunch of, yes, men in the room with, Ah, with With with James Dolan and James Dolan basically just does stupid **** and his his guys were just like, Oh, it sounds good.
Let's let's do that and stuff So it seems like he never they just it's to step forward and one step back or it's actually to step back and one step for kind of for them.
Actually, it's a little bit more depressing than that.
All right, to the New York Knicks.
Well, they did it.
David Fizdale is if firing a guy you just hired will fix all the problems of the franchise has been struggling with since before I was even born.
The Knicks traded Kristaps Porzingis for Dennis Smith Jr and DeAndre Jordan only for the next sign, shorten and getting absolutely no value form and then replacing Denison's junior with very getting no value for him.
So, essentially, if you really think about traded Kristaps Porzingis for absolutely nothing, **** management says we take the team in Seattle.
If you want to give it to us, Um, I'm not like there was another Seattle SuperSonics.
And I wouldn't want to get rid of the thunder, either, because I like the thunder he needs to go to, and it won't be the next fix.
Their to power for the Knicks are basically the Cowboys o M B baby, but they never work.
Just like those.
So James James Bloom fall for sure, because he's great in this environment where you can just that's what's happening before 18 conference ends in franchise history.
Uh, and I are living in till the afternoon.
I didn't like James tells the point, but, like Patton means, so I don't see the point in Kings have been being patient.
Yeah, Village environment.
You feel like you're rooting for college teams because, um, so hard record.
I don't care for teams.
Women losing never can.
But like they don't care about winning losing your time, you just want they just won't experiment, which is exciting.
That's exciting franchise.
It's only its leaders don't like a bowl son like the next.
I'm like the mix a little bit better, but um well, like we're back fence with people We are.
Bulls fans were bad fans, like there was 10 times.
I think the attendance with when Derrick Rose was there was was through the roof.
And once he left, it went down.
The viewer viewership on Bulls fans.
When Derrick Rose left, we didn't watch it as much.
Um, we're basketball.
I'm a basketball fan.
I'm sure there's plenty of Bulls fans who just like, obsessed with the Bulls to.
But that's the thing about the thunder.
They have a special fan group, but talking about the Knicks for a second, it's kind of ridiculous.
It's kind of ridiculous because you hire and I'm gonna get to this.
They give him four power forwards, okay? And a rookie franchise player, four power forwards, four and the other.
All good players.
But But you don't sign.
Okay, let me give you an example of this.
Let me life. Okay.
That's like creating 1/5 wheel.
Like Okay, you by like, you have two wheels, right? But you need four.
So you buy you you by, like, two more wheels, and then you add two more. That's what it was like.
They have like hell we need. We need a power forward.
Let's buy four of them.
What? Why would you buy? Why would you make? Why would you buy four of them? It doesn't make any sense.
Oh, in an extra tire, let's buy four of them.
Oh, I need a That's actually bad examples.
You always use an extra tires.
Um, I need a car.
Let's buy four of them.
What are you doing? It's It's stupid.
There's there's too many role players and they're all in the same particular role.
Julius Randle is the best out of them.
I would say he got paid the most.
He's 56 million would keep Randall.
Obviously, he's a good player that you want.
You want to keep Randall and but Portis? I I like Portis.
He was with the Bulls, but with Randall, What the hell is the point of Portis? There's no point to have Portis and Randall on the same team is just It's silly.
It really is like maybe one of them.
Maybe you have two of the guys, but then you have three of them.
Then you have top target gifts and too.
So where the hell is he gonna fly it? And you have Marcus Force? You got to get him minutes.
He's Marcus Morris.
So what? It's just crazy talk, in my opinion, it's a Guard league.
It's a ball handling league.
It's a three pointing league at three point shooting league and the hell and what do they do? They? It's a three point shooting league, and what they do, they get 34 power forwards.
It makes no sense.
So, yeah, it's like giving.
It's giving, um, Fizdale a bunch of clay and sing right guys make me a trophy out of this play.
But in reality, you give a bunch of **** and you're asking me to make you a trophy.
It's not gonna work.
It's not gonna work.
So if this is your Knicks fan, it's a relatively negative article, and if you're not, you might find it funny.
But there is potential light at the end of the tunnel.
If Steve Mills and Scott Perry wanted to see it like Knicks fans are ****ed off right now, you know they're mad.
I don't know if you guys saw Michael Rapid poor.
I'm not his hugest fan.
But I I watched him because of the big three and stuff.
Um, he was so ****ing ****ed he was sold pits that the Knicks fired David Fizdale.
He was beyond furious.
Um, because not only do you have to pay this dude now to your two paise David Pere David Fizdale for the next few years, but he's not gonna be your coach, and you have to pay, So it's just it's it's it's a ****ing nightmare if you're next fans.
So, um, that's really all I considered the light of the end of the tunnel is Mark Jackson.
Really? If if they hired Mark Jackson, um, or Jerry Stackhouse or somebody with a bigger name, they could maybe get away with all this.
They could maybe just, like, brush this under the rug really quick.
Marc Marcus Morris is leaving. I know.
I know it like it is.
Um, it's a joke.
When Marcus Morris is the is the primary ball handler on offense for a good portion of the time. That's a joke.
He's a catch and shoot forward like is he a good forward? Sure, sure, He's a really good forward, but is he is your primary for absolutely not politic.
And you're paid in $15 million Or how much is he getting paid? Yeah, $15 million.
Um, out of your cap room for a guy who is a catch and shoot forward.
And you don't need a catch and shoot for, Like, that'd be a good deal if you're there for the Lakers.
Um, if you're the if you're the Mavericks, you could afford that.
If you're the, um, hold on one second, guys.
What's going on bed? Oh, you're talking about talking to me.
Never mind Marcus Morris trading a set.
That's the thing. You just signed him.
It's all the unit.
I don't know if you can trade him after one year.
I'm pretty sure of the weight, Like, six months before you consign someone I don't even know.
Actually. Depends on this contract.
How do you trade him? Like, who do you trade him for? Who's gonna pay for that? They could have gotten markets forest for 10 mil, and now they're getting from 15.
I mean, honestly, I don't I don't know who's gonna want him.
I I don't know who's gonna want him.
That's not that markets.
Morse isn't worth $15 million but that's like the maximum that you would pay him.
That's the maximum amount per year you would pay him.
So I don't I don't like it at all. But let's move on.
That's what about.
We've been talking about that for 10 straight minutes.
Um, coaching rumors.
D'Antoni, Gentry, Bolin, Spurs.
Rockets are off to a reasonably strong started the season with a 57 record, good for the fourth in the Western Conference.
However, Houston's play hasn't necessarily made Mike D'Antoni's position.
Is head coach any more secure? Interesting, man said. Expiring.
Contract him exactly.
I mean, the contract is not worth very much.
It's worth some.
It's definitely worth some.
You could maybe get like, I don't know, like a second unpicked for that, but it's definitely not worth a lot.
So according to John Hillinger and Sam A**** of the athletic, Ah, D'Antoni is in trouble or not in trouble.
But he's he's ah, they trust serious skepticism that Tony will still be the head coach of the Houston beyond this season, which is surprising to me.
Think about it it made it to the, uh, the championship game a few times.
I don't see the point in getting rid of them.
And the view of that source, Any results short of Rockets Championship this season means the odds are slim.
They're D'Antoni returns a 2020 2021.
So this is pretty much it.
This is championship or bust for Mike D'Antoni and Russell Westbrook.
Are you? Um I don't see them like getting better, you know? I mean, I don't think they're gonna get better.
I mean, you know, they win with this team, and they they always lose.
They get someone else and be starting.
They're not gonna make it.
You're not gonna make it to the championship game unless you find, like, somebody like Nick Nurse.
But you're not gonna make the championship game without seem coach, in my opinion and my opinion, D'Antonio helps harden so hard will probably have a worst season if D'Antoni leaves.
So So while it seems like it is unlikely that the Rockets would make it in the season coaching change unless things really go south, a few teams around the MBA may look ahead to next spring, Consider the possibility of pursuing debts should become available.
I would love that if the Bulls would here a few more coaching notes and rumors from Sami.
I'm glad the Cowboys cut bread in there.
Who they signed? They signed.
That's a weird name anyway.
Yeah, the Cowboys have new cooker guys, by the way, if you didn't know Brett Mayor got cut, He got cut this morning.
Ron Rivera got fired.
He's available to.
So a number of factors are working in Alvin Gentry's favor When it comes to his job.
Security felt the pelicans having a healthy head of basketball operations.
David Grisman David Griffin has a history with Gentry and team over Tina.
The team owner Gale Benson also thinks highly of the New Orleans head coach.
Plus, Gentry is under contract for the 2021 season, and his salary next year is believed to be worth five plus $1,000,000.
A source tells Hollinger and a mix.
So why would you? Why would you trade him? Or why would you? Why would you cut him? Makes no sense.
You have to pay $5 million anyway.
He minds minds will keep him.
So lead sources tell the athletic that my balls, the Bulls, the Bulls have a basketball operations.
John Paxson vomit continues to be a fan of Jim Bolin and his tough love approach.
However, Boland's defensive scheme has drawn some criticism, and Chicago have the league's 29th ranked offense.
According to Holland, you're anemic.
Bolan also remains unpopular in the Bulls locker room.
The athletic dual wonders of in organizational overhaul that affects both bowling in the front office.
Please, Please, Lord, uh, please.
Please, Can we please fire John Paxson and Gar Forman, please it.
Can we please fire them? I've been waiting since I was a teenager to fire them.
Please fire them.
Let's see what Graham says, Son Kai Forbath.
So the Cowboys signed Kai Forbath guys, By the way, Goose was talking about the pelicans.
And he's talking about Alvin Gentry.
He's not the guy.
He may not be the guy, but while you're developing, you already have to pay him $5 million.
So you might as well look for the guy wall.
You're paying him $5 million to jury agreed to pay him $5 million.
So, I mean, unless you want to hit somebody else $5 million to I mean, I don't think Gale Benson wants to do that bullet.
See? I don't know.
They have millions of dollars to throw around, so it is what it is anyway.
Lordy, Lord Almighty, please.
You need to fire guard Max.
Everybody when we get going to the chat Fire! Fire! Guard X fire guard packs! Sam! Hey, **** and Sam A**** and ah, the other dude, Hollinger.
They think that they're gonna fire Gar packs, please fire him! Fire! Fire! Both of them! Fire! All three Bolin packs and and ah, Garden Gar Forman! Done! Gone Leave! I never want to see you again.
John Paxton hit 13 pointer for Michael Jordan told Sudden he's a bull's legend.
Like shut the **** up like I am so done is done.
Tax and I'm out on John Paxon.
Nothing John Paxson can do from here.
Oh, Now, besides drafting the next Luca Don Church could save his job for me.
Um ah, Channel cat league sources continue to speculate that speculate that Kansas head coach Bill Self could be a potential success for successor for Gregg Popovich in the spring of one kind of head coach pops out to retire.
Come, I don't That's a huge I don't that's a huge if that's you Jews or not.
I don't know if it's huge news.
What it is is, is Popovich probably looking for his successor, But he's he's done.
I mean, let's be real.
Popovich is not winning another title.
He first of all, he's too old something. What? He doesn't have a talent.
Third of all, he's his games, game play that he does.
Not that he's not a good coach.
Don't get me wrong.
He made a couple of good plays.
Ah, good calls the other night to win that one game, but he's done.
This is is he's done.
This is how I feel about the Cowboys.
Ah, I assume you're talking about fired, but are forming our packs.
Do fighters at all.
Just get him out of here.
Get him out of here.
Just start over.
Start over Like we haven't had a really ah, new front office since a really front office since the bowls, and even then they had some issues of the front office.
So it is what it is, but could build self be the next Spurs head coach.
It's possible it's possible.
Self has been a Coast Friends with Santonio executive R. C.
Buford since they attended college together.
Oklahoma State. Interesting.
So that would be interesting.
Um, Joe, I think he's gonna be a better coach than Popovich.
No, but he'll be different.
He'll be a different look.
Ah, pop religious system is for nineties to two thousand's basketball.
It really is, and it leaked into the 20 tens.
But then one Steph Curry came along.
It it went, Bye bye.
Pavlovich is a lot about pick and roll.
He's a lot about finding the open guy.
He's a lot about teamwork.
He's a lot about, you know, this game is allowed as a lot about stars these days.
Um, Provigil is never a guy who could embrace stars.
That's why he lost quite Leonard.
He's never a guy that says, like, Oh, my star is my everything.
I'm gonna give the ball to my star whenever he wants.
He's never that guy, he said.
You know, the Here's the play.
Run it, you know, and I don't care who gets the ball.
I don't care if it's Tim Duncan.
You know what Tim Duncan loved that he was able to.
He was able to roll those punches, but it is what it is.
Jerry Jones kept Jason Garrett for so long.
He's kept him for a very long time.
And there's only one reason why, because he's a yes man because he says yes to everything is so Jerry.
Yeah, sure, Whatever you want, Jerry Andri, Whatever you want, Jerry.
We'll do this guy.
And they put together a solid football team, Kind of kind of.
It's better than the Bulls.
But at the same time, the Cowboys aren't like over that hump, and they actually are coach away from being over their home.
In my opinion, I think that Jerry Jones son has done a really, really good job.
Is a general manager.
I think he's a really good job.
Uh, what's his name? Jones.
But it's Yeah, it's mediocrity.
It's eight names.
Every year it's seven and nine.
It's nine and seven.
It's not gonna put you.
You need to be over that hump.
That's not talent.
They have enough talent, the quarterback that have enough talent in the old line.
They have enough talent, the running back.
They have enough talent on defense.
They just don't have the schemes.
They don't beat people with schemes.
They don't beat people with place.
They don't have those big, huge plays.
It's a bunch of little plays that may or may not work with the Cowboys.
So it is what it is. The Cowboys, the Cowboys.
The Cowboys have their work cut out for him.
They know exactly what they need.
They just need to do it.
Jerry Jones needs to pull his balls up and ah, and do it honestly.
So the next story Kevin Love reportedly prefers to move to a contender trade rumors is by Luke Adams.
Trade rumors control continue to swirl around Cavaliers forward Kevin Love with Shams, Shahrani of the athletic and ESPN Brian Wind towards becoming the latest away in olives off situation.
According to Shamsher Ronnie, our short Shania, I'm not sure how to say that, but Shamsher Ronnie I think is his name.
League sources have said that Love would prefer to moving to a contending team.
Shahrani also re edit it reiterated what ESPN reported on Friday, indicating that the calves have been open to engaging in discussions with teams about potentially trading a trade involving Kevin Love.
Now, the reason why this is interesting is not just because he's a pretty good player and he could help, Uh, you could help a team.
It's that there's a lot of duos in the league and there's not an awful lot of cap room.
So finding a good spot for him is really gonna be hard for sure.
I really want this. I want to see your opinion on that.
Kevin Love best destinations absolutely do.
So that is, well, that CZ one I'm thinking of Broke is because there's a lot of teams that would want him, but how many can afford him? So it's full of the capitalist.
Let's put the cap MBA Trade Finder **** around with this for a little while.
A lot of teams in the NFL that would want Kevin love.
It's a matter of can you afford Kevin Love because Kevin Lowe has a big contract that Cleveland gave him $28 million a year.
I don't think he's gonna get his maximum per with, um, Why won't that work? Yeah, let's try.
What's Fry E? Dallas syrah here? Dallas is negative 11 in the cap space, so they'd have to like they have to match it, have to match play.
Yes, he it's greater than 19.
So the only thing like again is 19.
So whoever we need to take Kevin Love has to take has to take money into their, Probably unless they have somebody to trade.
Let's try this so you cannot trade dealing right? That's not our Tim Hardaway.
Rather, that's not gonna work.
Uh, let's try deal on right? Ah, we're going to trade any of them.
You might trade Courtney Lee, Courtney Lee and I wouldn't trade Justin Jackson.
I wouldn't trade Roby.
I don't know if I don't think the calves would even do this.
Yeah, see, and also cut alone from the Yeah, there's a lot of teams to this.
The thing Here's the thing.
Let's get away from the Mavericks because the Mavericks can't do it. Apparently.
Ah, well, I was teams is me hard.
It'd be really hard to do it.
And, um, Minnesota could want it back. Maybe.
Maybe Minnesota, Maybe Andrew Wiggins.
One for one. Again.
Ah, you didn't do that again, huh? Always is Boston, Utah. Phoenix.
Okay, let's try those.
Let's try those.
Yes, something like here's one that would work, but I don't think they would do it.
Is Ah, Andrew Wiggins.
Is that funny? The Cavs drafted wagons and traded for Kevin Loan taken.
Still, they could trade right back.
All right, let's try this.
A different team.
This you **** Boston Boston would do that.
I don't know if Boston would do that.
You have to trade.
Ah, Gordon Hayward.
And for sure, you definitely straight.
No question about that.
Yeah, you could.
You could do a one for one.
You could do one for one.
Um, Celtics are losing out on this, apparently.
So I don't think they wouldn't do that.
Actually, a different one.
So let's say you don't want to get her to Gordon Hayward.
You know I would, but, uh I don't know, man.
I don't know if it's worth it for any of those teams to trade for him, to be honest with you, Like, who would they even why I'm gonna move the next thing because I don't even know what it want.
You said the sun's 50 X could using.
Phoenix could definitely use them.
Um, could we afford him? It's the only 11 of the tax.
You have to trade Rubio. Probably.
And then they want a young guy.
I'm sure we want to get a guy.
Man was Justin Jackson at what happened to him? Look, it's just in Jackson.
You still have three years left on his deal. Exactly.
So you need someone I don't know, man.
Tied your own Rubio by drone for that? I don't know if you didn't want to do that.
If you're the son is, though.
Yeah. See, that didn't even work.
Salaries are greater than therefore the injuries. Okay.
So I gotta and, dude, there's not much you could do.
Then who would you trade? Where is Justin Jackson? Hold on look this up.
Where the **** is Justin Jackson? I'm not just index and Josh Jackson can't even write.
Welcome, everybody who's with me today on SportsCastr in? Yeah, he's on Phoenix with Look, I was young Memphis.
Oh, Memphis hustle, you got You got some of the dealing, baby.
Remind you don't want him to go **** to the Sun's even having trade for them, not just in Jackson.
Wow, You can't even stay in the league.
You came to trade, Goober.
I don't even know, man.
I don't even know who they can get the best option for.
Kevin loves to send it back to Minnesota.
That's what I said.
I just showed that trade earlier here will show you that trade again.
As I just said, because I'm looking at all these and there's really not many options.
It's right now, dude, like, it really isn't at all like Minnesota is the best option.
And here's seriously, like you could do this trade right here. Easy.
You could trade back foot flop again.
Switch you right back.
Um, let's see Giorgio Dang.
Try to get rid of Wiggins.
A young guy, though if you're the cat's, you want a young guy or draft pick.
So, like the same thing worth it? Honestly, at this point at this point, Kevin Love would seriously just be on just being kicked off the roster at that point.
You know what I mean? Like, there's no point for him to even, um, be traded because you're just kicking him off the roster.
If you're doing that.
Yeah, that doesn't even work on C.
See, everyone's everyone's capture.
****ed the needle, like restructure this entire C b a.
They really do that.
You restructure everything, and I would try dating and okay, okay, I'll try that.
I forgot his name.
No work, I'm sure.
You know what, though? You know what, though, that's nonsense, because I'm sure they can make it work.
They couldn't make it work like so this one right here is close enough that they would make it work.
They would figure it out. They would.
They would throw some things around.
This was close enough.
You're right that they would make that work.
It's possible it's possible.
It's not stupid.
It's definitely not suicide, you know, I would try.
Dang, you know, call you the second. Exactly.
And then you probably have them eat like six.
How much do you need to eat? You try to make them eat five million? Yep. Right here.
Five million. 5.4 million novels.
So you could do it.
You would have the cab eat five million.
You could totally do that.
Actually, you have a big 30 that would maybe even make the playoffs.
So anyway, that is my thoughts on here.
Let's let's finish out with Luke And and on this.
So he says, the cab's got to a solid start.
The season under billing on you know how the holds his name.
John Dillon Sounds like Bolin.
Bolin sucks winning for the last, uh, for the 1st 9 rather game.
Since then, they've dropped 12 13.
She and you know that any of those losses have been blowouts.
The team was handled by 47 points in Philadelphia on Saturday after recording 18.
3 points per game, 13.
Wow, it's pretty good, actually, for love over in Cleveland's first time games, he's only Wow, it's bad.
14 point and then about eight rebounds a game out of 40%.
This mental doc with a back injury.
Would you even want Kevin Love, bro? Yeah, exactly.
Trade exception. Cash Exactly what I was thinking.
Um, excuse me, but would you even want Kevin love on your team? Like Siri? If you make.
If you are like an eighth seed right now, is he gonna hurt your team and help your team? Here's a bad back.
He has a bad wrist.
He has a bad isn't bad.
A lot of things. He's like five bad things.
So? So he has star little upside potential trade.
Trade partners will be aware of his recent injury history. Exactly.
Hasn't played more than 60 games in the season for, like four years.
And of his contract, which has still three years and $91 million left.
Jeez, that's crazy, man.
Do you want to hear about your in here? Would let me know if you want to hear about Gordon Hayward. Heroism Skip.
Oh, let's see. Shahrani.
Multiple teams monitoring Marvin Williams Availability.
Interesting going on. Here you go.
Top prospect Lamell lowball sidelined with a foot injury.
Lamell a ball has recently been gathering momentum.
The topic is by Luke Adams against the top pick in the 2020 MBA draft is a result of the drunk playing The Australia's National Basketball League, with evaluators hoping to take a closer look at Ball, will have to delay those plans until next year, according to a press relief, a press release issued.
But I Illawarra Hawks the balls NBL team The guard suffered a bruised right.
Put our best foot in practice is expected to miss four weeks.
The Hawks season doesn't until mid February.
The club will look to get ball back in the lineup for its home stretch.
All has impressed scouts by ever getting 17 points a game.
Seven rebounds a game, 6.
8 assists through 12 games is an 18 year old in one of the world's most competitive basketball leagues.
While he has struggled a little with a shot, which is that 37% in this three point shot, a 25% very memory but Ball has boosted, is stuck and is in a contender for everyone picking 2020.
It's the same question about Kevin Love that have about Lorenzo Loom? Ella Bowe, would you? You want him on your team? Okay, would you? You're the Knicks, right? Do you want a melon ball on your team? You don't need to sell tickets, Okay? Like you really mix, you don't need to sell tickets.
People think that you need to sell tickets when you're the next.
You don't actually news lto the ****ing mix.
It's like the cowboys.
You're gonna get tickets sold.
It's about Can you put a winning product on the floor to make your team? Your fans, your fandom? Your family's happy.
Is that possible? Can you do that? Is this reasonable? Can you make that happen? Um and I don't know what they can.
I really don't think they can.
I don't think the Knicks can do that.
I think they're too ****ing dumb. I really do.
I think they're to dunk.
They don't get it.
They signed fear they signed here.
Power forwards that do the same job.
I'm gonna hire a plumber.
I'm not hire four different plumbers do the same job.
I have one clogged toilet in there and I need four different plumbers to come and help.
What? What are you doing? He spent $100 million on one position.
And you know what's worse? No, it's worse about the about the We show you this.
I don't know what's worse about the Knicks.
This is the worst part about the next is the worst part of all that they did.
Mitchell Robin since the best ****ing player.
And he's opposed player.
So Mitchell Robinson's.
You're pretty much your best player, I would argue.
Probably the best player in the league are not a legal in New York, right? He's probably your best player, and you have ****ing four guys taking the ball from it.
All more experienced.
You want to get him the ball? Look at the Hawks.
You want to get your young guys the ball.
That's and Kevin Knox doesn't get them all very much anymore.
Why? Why is Marcus Morris leading you guys on breaks? Why? What is wrong with you? Um, he said the thunder Making me happy right now is the time to deal with that.
Exactly. The thunder.
Understand? Okay, guys.
All right, We're gonna lose Paul, George, win or lose.
Russell Westbrook hears we're gonna get back.
We're gonna give the vault of our younger guys and make sure that our young guys get going.
If they're young guys going right, and then they're gonna get better, they're gonna come back and be better for next year.
And then they'll be They'll be even better against their own competition and they will involve us players.
Why would you get Taj Gibson? What is the point of that? What is the point of Taj Gibson? I have nothing against Tajh gifts.
I watched him in with the Bulls for like 10 years, almost like there's nothing I have against this man.
But he does not fit the profile.
He's 34 he's 34 years old and you guys, like are gonna, like, Start him over.
Mitchell Robinson's Who's 21? 34? 21.
You want the 21? I promise you, you want the 21 year old.
I bet you money, so that's just flagrantly stupid by New York.
And as usual, it's no surprise.
New York is incredibly stupid. They just were dumped.
They don't understand.
They don't understand how a basketball.
But if you're the Knicks, you, why would you? Okay? Oh, Look, let me tell you why they don't want a melon ball, Okay? Cause I'm assuming that the Knicks are the number one pick.
I'm just assuming right now because they suck that much.
They're that bad.
Okay, You traded Kristaps Porzingis for Dennis Smith Jr.
Right? Do drafted.
Frank. Neil Kina.
You drafted R J Barrett.
All four of them are well ahead, or all three of them are ball handlers.
And then you might draft the melon ball.
No, if they draft will mellow ball.
Not only would that ruin Lamell Oh, balls career.
Don't make the Knicks bad for another 10 years like, Oh, my God, it's crazy.
It's crazy. The Knicks are just are nuts.
They're absolutely crazy.
They don't They don't understand anything own? No.
If you're the next you need three point shooting.
You need off the ball. Three point shooting.
That's it, kid steps Iwas He was your future.
You could have built.
You could have built a playoff team around Christopher Zynga's, but now he's gonna go help Luca Dandridge won the title.
See, I just so, um here we go.
So let's talk about trading on a little bit.
So, Trey young is expressions by Baby Shar.
Another JD dot com Young is expression expressing frustration over the 2019 2020 season despite putting up remarkable numbers on a consistent basis.
Sara Spencer, Atlantic Journal Constitution rights, which actually have read that place multiple times.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution is actually pretty good.
It's got a weird name. It's surprisingly good.
Naturally, Young isn't satisfied with the campaign due to his team's poor start six and 17.
It's actually worse than I thought.
Young has raised his scoring average from 19.
Also is averaging 20 or 8.
4 assists Shooting Ah, 46% from the floor, 39% from three point territory, which is great, he said.
Even the local is Trey unquote.
Even I Oklahoma.
I lead the country in points and assists and I was frustrated almost every game.
Whenever we lose, Young said.
As as real relayed by Spencer quote.
I had 48 Oklahoma State and I couldn't enjoy it because we lost those losses when I flee.
Good stick with me because I hate that feeling when I play good individually numbers wise, but we don't win because you can't enjoy it, especially when you're a competitor like me.
The Hawks have lost 11 of the last 12 games leading up to Sunday's contest against Charlotte, even though Atlanta won that game.
The team's record is seven, are six and 17 is the third worst mark in the Eastern Conference and tied for the fourth worst in the MBA quote.
You could do a lot more, Young said.
It's crazy to say it's crazy here and that's just the real nous.
But that's just the realist.
I think I could do a lot more and whether it's sliding over taking charges on big men while they're rolling, doing something I can't do more, just got to figure it out and find a way.
I've got to figure it out.
Our team has to do a better job of figuring out, too.
We'll get it right.
****, that's depressing.
I mean, he looks that he looks at you, traded him away.
Christopher's ingots was ah, franchise player and they traded him away for Dennis Smith Jr and DeAndre Jordan, which they don't use either of them.
So they got virtually nothing for him.
Um, it's sad to hear this from Trey Young, who's lost 11 of the last 12 games.
Um, because he is so great. He was.
He is such a good player.
He is so phenomenal.
He reminds me of Steph Curry, and I know everyone makes that comparison.
And I know it's an old comparison.
I don't care, because he does.
He reminds me of Steph Curry.
Ah, his shot is so pretty.
Is shot is so precise.
It's so accurate.
He's such a good player overall.
Hey, run, boys O g in the house.
Whatever room, boys. O g.
Welcome to the family.
Welcome to Crew.
Rants were just ran, Ran, ran, ran.
We got 20 more minutes around left, and then I'm gonna do a game tonight.
Um, I think I'm going to the Bulls game tonight.
Ah, we'll see how it works out.
But but it's sad to see train, young man.
It's sad to see him struggling because he looks over the Western Conference and he sees little donkeys playing really well.
He sees that he's in the M V P discussion.
He sees that Luca is willing.
This team two wins and Trey is trying to do that.
But he's not able to do it.
And whether that's because of coaching, whether that's because of the bench play, whether that's because of trade himself, it's hard to know it's hard to know because it's hard to win in professional sports, man, it's hard.
It's hard to win in the NFL.
It's hard to win in the n B A.
There's people there that are overriding that Luke is doing.
And there's people that are under hyping what Luke is doing.
And I think that Trey Young understands exactly where Luca is and he understands exactly where he is.
He understands that.
Hey, okay, I travel the skills just like Luca.
I have all those skills, every skill you imagine.
I'm not big and big moments.
I'm not physically big in those big moments.
So Trey Young is limited.
They're just like Steph Curry during Trey Young doesn't have Clay Thompson.
Young doesn't have Draymond green.
Trey Young doesn't have Ah, Andrew Bogut's he has? No, he has good team, but they're young and they don't know what's going on.
Um, he has John Collins who appreciate is out with these did steroids, so he's out for a while.
So that's That's another reason why they're losing cause they don't have John Collins.
Who's there? All star.
Um, but and they also have they have camera issue has been who's been better than he was in the beginning of the season.
Uh, then they have DeAndre hunter who's been pretty good and they have Kevin hers when pretty good they have none was Okay, um, they have all these guys, but they can't necessarily put it together because all roads lead.
None is in the heat.
Len is the guy I was thinking of.
But they have life and they have all these guys.
Um, but they just can't close until, you know, sometimes Luca well in LeBron is a good example of this, too.
When the game's on the line, they use their body a little bit.
They kind of like shuffle around like I'm six foot nine.
I'm six foot eight huge.
I can use my body.
I can move a little bit.
I could do that. Trey Young doesn't have that.
He has the long shot, and sometimes when he's hot, that shot is unstoppable.
But it's hard to win every game when you don't have, like the Clay Thompson who could do it to win.
It was a two way player.
You don't have the other guy who can create spacing for you when it's just Steph Curry.
When it's just Trey Young, it's harder, does your small, and that's when that's when your body really doesn't matter in the NBA's, when it's just you when you have to go one on one, it's hard.
People think James Harden is also skillful, but he's also six foot seven.
People Don't really realise is bigger than Michael Jordan was.
Okay, so it's got a body.
You have to have a big body.
Joel Embiid sometimes relies too much on his body.
Um, it hurts him.
So it's just There's a balance to everything, man.
When you have the balance of the skill and the body, you're gonna be a superstar.
It's very difficult, though.
It's very difficult, especially for Troy Young, because he is a small guy.
He's probably one of the smallest guys in the league.
He's definitely the most pound for pound best basketball player I've ever seen because he's even smaller than Steph Curry and, ah, he making it makes those plays so and it's amazing.
Um, let's see what else we got going on here.

But let's look, the power rankings looks like the athletics being broken.
So MBA power rankings.
So right now this is according to Google, a rotoworld. Scuse me.
According to Rotoworld, the Milwaukee Bucks are number one in the world and the Lakers are number two.
So heels him on now it's a little down for me.
So, uh, this is Tommy beer from rotoworld dot com and says Milwaukee box record 20 and 30 20 and three Talk about domination over the last four games, The Bucks net rating is plus 33.
4, which is great.
They outscored their opponents by 137 points over a four game stretch, which is insane the second highest differential over a four game span and N BA history.
Milwaukee is currently on pace to finish the season with with the top two both offenses and defensive efficiency.
After what I saw with the Clippers, I know it's early, but after what I saw with the Clippers, the books of the favorite I don't care what you say.
The Bucks are the favorite in the, uh, in the n b A. The favorite.
Be sure to remove some of the old stuff in J.
Dionne T spring.
I don't know what you mean by that.
We'll talk about that, He says.
Madison, the top five, possibly.
We'll check it out.
So is his Lakers.
Ah, Bucks aren't the only team in town.
17 wins ball? Yeah, the Lakers remember to 21 3 bucks.
They're the only team on paste currently to notch 70 wins, which would be ****ing crazy if the buck's got 70 wins and be absolutely ****ing crazy.
But the Lakers are a CZ Well or not, they're not the only team.
The Lakers are also on pace to win 70.
I don't think they're gonna win 70.
I think they're gonna slow down around February and then pick back up again for the playoffs.
That's what's gonna happen so usually happens in LeBron James.
Well, we'll see.
So uh, 80 exploded for season high 50 points? Well, if he 20 of $20 for the Ford Perfect 10 for 10 from the charity stripe, he also got seven rebounds, six assists, four steals in a block in less than 40 minutes with Lakers the other night.
Celtics or number three now must to say about them.
Except this is that you remove.
This is exactly what I thought would happen 100% Like, I mean, not to say that I thought they'd be this good, but I knew they would improve once they got rid of Kyrie.
Irving, I think even carefully kept terrorists here and didn't even get anyone knew.
I I did not care.
I knew that the order they would improve.
I knew it for a fact.
So, um, that's awesome for the Celtics.
Ah, there are 19 at home this season.
Um, and they're right below the bucks for number two in the East Clippers.
Man, Milwaukee beat the living **** out of them the other day.
Ah, number four is about right where I I would have him.
I almost would put Philadelphia ahead of them.
I do not agree with the heat number five.
I don't care that they've won a lot of games. I know.
No, the heater or not.
Number five, it's It's a joke.
Here, not number five.
Ah, sorry, Rotoworld.
You're just wrong.
Um, Clippers owner before six years should be number four.
In my opinion, it suits if we were in Stephanie That being saying it takes, but I don't know if they're gonna win 70.
I feel I felt so cool off a little bit.
Like you're doing really well early on.
You know, you got to get a good seat for sure, but we'll see Robbie Stephens.
Strasbourg is back with the Nets, so that's good.
I remember when he was drafted with them a long time ago.
So, yeah, despite leading by 20 with six and 1/2 minutes left to the 1st 1st 4th quarter.
The Sixers end up with having having to sort it out victory over the Raptors on Sunday night.
Never nonetheless, Billy got the job done, thanks in part to a 26 point performance from Tau terrorists in a career high 20 point from Matisse.
Stybel uh, that's only the six can be brought six years.
So much better than the here.
You kidding me? No way.
I don't care about the record.
The Sixers are better than the heat and the Mavericks are better than the heat do.
The matter is, I'm gonna put it six.
Ah, the sixties.
I'd put it five.
I put it seven. I want to switch this up right here.
And, well, you know what? The Raptors are right there too with the Mavericks.
So you've been You've been intertwined all through all four of these.
But I think I put the heat of the bottom between these four teams right here.
I put the heating bottom because I just don't I haven't seen enough like their best.
Some of their best players are rookies for God's sake. It doesn't help me.
It doesn't help me. The Sixers have vets.
Do they've been in the playoffs like, three times already? So no, Give me the Sixers giving the MAV second because of the star power, then raptors because they still have a lot of good.
They're champions, broke.
They're champions Just cause you're missing quite.
Let her give you the Raptor over this over the heat Rockets right next to the heat right next to the heat. I can see that.
So the rockets are number nine? A lot of people thought that that they wouldn't Ah, that they wouldn't be really good without with Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
But, um, they are Maybe they're all right.
They're not bad.
You definitely haven't seemed to have missed a step it all.
So, uh, the rockets are good, Man.
Macklemore's averaging 22.
5 points a game. 4.5.
Over the 30 minutes, that's really good.
Macklemore is playing well the last four games, Ben Macklemore.
They have Austin Rivers has been playing really well.
Underrated player for sure.
A lot of people trashed him because it is Dad. Give him a contract.
Ah, but he's a good player.
Must have seen something in the, um, let's see.
Yeah, the Nuggets have been slipping.
The Nuggets have been slipping.
They were really down in the last year.
Nuggets lost roll road games, the Celtics and the Nets this weekend, But unfortunately, unfortunately, they witnessed the reemergence of an aggressive Nicola joke itch.
Joe the Joker average 27 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in and 32 minutes over to contents.
Who? Two contests.
Excuse me while attempting 21 shots per game and shooting 54.
8% from the floor.
Yeah, but you know what a joke it is not.
He's not your be all Indo joke.
It reminds me of joy.
Love being only is a little bit more healthy.
He's not your being and all he can maybe sometimes save You saved the game for you and me sometimes take advantage of people, but he's not your be all.
It should not be your guy.
Jazz and God had the Pacers.
You kidding me? No way.
Paces of 15 and eight, though they have better records.
So there's really nothing arguing.
Um wow, I didn't know that.
I didn't know the Pacer for 15 and eight.
That's really good is really good.
I'm learning something new every day. I'm Janey rants.
Good news of the last two weeks of jazz have been undefeated.
The bad news is that their own five against the rest of the N v A.
To be fair, Utah for the five losses came on the road to difficult opponent.
It's box Pacers represents is the only home loss.
Was LeBron in the letters? Yeah, but me.
That's pretty bad if you can't beat those teams and you really can't go to the playoffs, in my opinion, so the Timberwolves are gonna play themselves out of the playoffs again.
Nto the nets are our garbage.
They're just garbage.
I don't I don't care about anyone, says those nets.
Kyrie Irving sucks.
He's trash! The sons have been slapping me and the sun have been slipping.
10 into the sun's looks really good early on, but now they're slipping.
The thunder, I feel like, are ahead of the magic.
I would take that.
Well, I don't know, man, because the thunder are a good team.
You know, They have a lot of good players.
It's just they don't have that star there on the superstar.
So one thunder play tonight, man.
Yeah, the jazz in the thunder or probably have the advantage tonight.
Um, I'll tell you, bro, the thunder looking go, they have. Ah, no.
Gallanar has played Well, um, they just have a lot of Ah, he's had a lot of good, a lot of good players, a lot of B players, a lot of bees, a lot of be grated guys that are not, you know, when your championship.
But they're also not lose a lot of games, either.
They're gonna be a 500 team and they'll stick around.
Um, the Spurs are done.
I mean, I'm sorry to say that the Spurs are done.
There's no way the Spurs were coming back from this.
They played really well, Baba the other night. Cool.
That a cool coaching everyone freaking out because, you know, he No, no, I'm sorry.
They just don't have the talent.
And Popovich is old man.
So? So the other kings are on this list right on.
Everyone's were this, but where they should be, Dan, the Hawks are lower than I thought.
Holy crap! And the Knicks of the worst.
Of course, they are the Knicks of the worst T.
They're the worst team in the MBA.
They're the worst team in the N B A. They really are that it's the worst.
It is what it is if you're next fan, I'm sorry.
They're the worst team in the MBA.
