It's about that time you were re live.
Come on, switch 525,000.
Okay, um, that's Let's get it.
But that runs fitting it out expertly. Right now.
That's a tribute to you, Kyrie.
Irving, Um, a known rent fanatic.
Um, just check my Twitter.
Make sure that this Oh, that's right.
Yeah, yeah, e I didn't even think about that openly.
Talked about, however, it was like, specifically the the, um, soundtrack was like his jam.
Yeah, he's a big on the other side.
We're talking, uh, he's a big musical theater fan.
Like he did a bunch growing up as a kid.
Which, when she's, like, talked about what? I, uh I did a lot of prep for last year's media day that I ended up not using any of it because I was a newbie.
That obviously wasn't gonna get to ask Kyrie Irving any questions, But, um, So this stuff I was looking up was like his I really like, um, like draft day quotes and like, quotes from rookie seasons.
So one of the really, really early articles, I hope I can find it again because I don't want to kind of do the same research for next year's media day.
But, um, it was like talking about how you know he, like, was he did a lot of, like, musicals and stuff growing up.
And, you know, he did.
Like, I believe is a choir even.
And stuff like that, which was really interesting, is a very different background from, like, a lot of Ah, I guess sports, uh, you know, prominent.
I thought it was kind of interesting.
Thanks for joining us.
We're gonna be talking about musical theater from thieves in the next 90 minutes.
No, we're watching, um, the Rockets Lakers game from February 6th year.
Um, in relative entirety, it's an hour and 41 so we might skip around for some parts, but we are incredibly serious minded basketball ****ysts.
Um and so we want to be not just carving door niche of its best, but we need to know about the broader world of, you know, the comings and goings of Western Conference title contenders.
So we're going to split? Yeah, this is it.
I mean, this is a good game. I didn't see this.
Er, let's see him to remember.
It's a part of this game.
I think so, Like, this is I feel like I could even though this game's a couple of weeks old, Um, one like this could be a playoff series if the Rockets end up like the five or something and they get past the first round.
But to I thought it was like a really interesting like, I guess, a litmus test for where the league is That, like, this is a huge team versus, like, smallest team in the league.
Essentially, I'm pretty.
This is getting zag here.
Uh, quick, quick, topical news bits.
What exactly went wrong with Mark Carroll on San Antonio? You just got, like, a 1,000,000 D M P s.
Yeah, but like why? Um, you know, because the spurs air a mess.
That's all I've got.
Um, that's just that's for that. Yeah, I guess.
There just a mess.
Like I don't know what they're ah, they're doing, but yeah, I like there.
Their pattern of retaining Rose in and LaMarcus And then on top of that, like, not really playing Derek White Johnson Murray together who are probably their two best younger guys.
I don't know what they're doing.
They're kind of a mess, but I don't know, I would have cashed in for assets, but they seem like they don't want a full, uh, Matt trying to boost abuse by going on this on his own account.
Oh, what? I don't get it because you're stream.
And I'm keeping track of the, uh, of the comments, but it's on my Paris Cho.
I look like I'm trying to boost.
Are you a good one way? Thanks for hanging out.
We could skinny, always, always hanging out.
I'm ready for the test.
Yeah, meet so still.
Um, did you did you watch any of the Rockets game from last night? I want.
Yeah, well, I was kind of I was when we were doing, like, right after we finished our stream, I watched a little bit of it, but like not much, cause I got into, uh, another excellent episode of blind love.
Netflix is new great reality show.
So, yeah, that was some pretty pretty tough to pass that up.
For those of you who don't know Let me tell you about blind love.
This is just the anything but basketball broadcasts.
The best part about something that's actually like super fun unwatchable is that you can talk about that.
Really any Nothing? Yeah, s Oh, yeah.
Blind love, great concept.
It's basically it's like a group of 15 guys, 15 girls, and they all go on individual dates, but it's blind, so they don't see each other.
So they're like, it's like a really, really, really, really, really pseudo science experiment or psychology.
That's like a social science thing from like seventies feels.
Yeah, yeah, which Definitely.
Definitely, uh, you ever see Project Nim? That's one of my favorite.
Like, it's a down memory about there was a this actually happened do***entary about in the 19 seventies like social scientists got together and thought like, What if we raise the chimpanzee just like a like a human child? Wow.
Um, and it was terribly, terribly wrong.
Uh, but like some of the best parts air, there's this woman who, um, it's like his first caretaker and looked first Mom basically, and she's like, Well, everything the chimpanzee gets like teenage years were allowing it to drink and smoke like there's this, like, high drunk to pansy like tear assing around there like loft in SoHo.
So, yeah, it's like it's never the shows.
Luckily, there's, like, way too many variables for this, actually, to be like a Braille experiment, like they're just I don't know, like it's not It's there, like testing for too many things, almost.
But basically they're blind to go on a bunch of dates, and then I'm assuming the producers, like, heavily suggest, Hey, you guys should, like, get engaged.
So they propose each other blind, and then the show is about them, like living together and like going through normal couples how they do the after the blindness, like its effects.
That's targets juicy.
But like, some of the stuff is so weird because, like, there, the one yesterday, uh, one of the girls is like, so, Yeah, I, uh I'm like, in $20,000 in debt from student debt.
She's like, 28 29.
Yeah, I haven't paid a dime and kind of pushing it off like I don't work.
So it was just like, what did you get to talk about something like that.
So I'm kind of like All right.
Like Well, like how it started.
Really? Spending these little like they called pods.
Pretty pretty excellent stuff.
Are you a reality TV hound? No, I'm not.
So, uh, so I live in my girlfriend And like, as I always, always all gonna TV with basketball stuff.
So I told her because I'm like, we have two TVs, but, like, I, uh you know, I'm just always doing basketball stuff, so I said, Look, because I'm doing so much basketball stuff this year and re watching so many games, I'll give you two shows this year to make me watch reality.
So fix what's amazing is a good one.
Yeah, if compromises ask, ask your girlfriend news.
Um, 90 day fiance.
Because for me, that's like, So I I I've been known to crush reality TV.
Yeah, like, yeah, like a teenage like a teenage girl.
And, um, that one for me ranks.
That's, like, delete here.
The premise is this which is a real thing.
It's that there are So there's a thing called K one visa, which is, if you are from another country.
You can stay in the U.
S for 90 days in engagement.
But then you have to marry a person to stay there permanently.
So he's like, you know, anywhere from a mail order bride to like a person that you met on a weird like vacation to the Philippines, where you might have been on a dating app for, like, specifically, Philippines and American guys.
They bring them over and they film the 90 days before they actually have to get married or not.
Um, it's pretty.
This is a thing.
Sounds like something.
I need to start that in the summer because I'm gonna want to do like, I'm gonna wanna watch, like, you know, six.
How long of the episodes? So, yeah, they're like, half an hour piece and Oh, but also yeah, it's good.
And also, like, go between like, five different couples.
They pack a lot.
Oh, that's good.
Okay, I like I hate shows when it's like they dwell too much on couples like there.
That's the good thing about this neutral.
There's one of the couples is like So they What did they do? They're like the like they say like awesome sauce and stuff like that where I'm like wide.
Like what? Don't say that.
Don't say awesome sauce.
They're like you.
You guys are like, 20.
You guys were like, you know, like managers or director levels at your companies.
I hope you don't say awesome sauce you.
I hope I didn't just Oh, God.
Dude, that is so I disheartened to hear that you were concerned.
OK, I never know.
I feel like I could be on a bad like I say something and you just get off.
That's like, you like, lost t shirt and had to throw it out like a son of a ***** merging awesome sauce on my watch.
Uh, wickets says, Does Metz girl have a favorite team or is she over the constant Buble? She should be coming in.
That's fan or what? Uh, let's see.
She liked last year's team, and it felt like I was really ringing her in on this Nets thing.
Um, has not been the case this year.
It's funny, like the longer I've been been dating her, we're hitting like three years in March.
It's funny how, in ah, comparing year one to your three, you're one very down, like watch fastball.
You love this. You're three.
Yeah, all right, I'm gonna go watch that.
You know, I wouldn't expect that.
I wouldn't expect it would be weird if I was with someone that was like, That's the best.
That's way better than the first year's air.
Like the nightmarish ones where you feel like every text.
And it's just like constantly you have trying not to implode the relationship.
That's the Yeah, that's the stressful part.
Yeah, like it's you know, it's, uh So I put this.
It's It's better that we each have, like, our own things, like it's I think it's important to have, like, separate time in a relationship, um, free, like your own hobbies, like you can't It doesn't.
You don't have to do everything together, and I think that's things you learn over time.
I wasn't like that, sort of I sort of marvel at, like couples that are super hobby centric, like share the same interests.
Yeah, I couldn't do that.
Yeah, it always feels like, like specifically the kind of dorky couples to like it's It's like a D A couple, you know. That's awesome.
You have awesome sauce. Couple for sure.
Um, they're going together without some stuffs store.
I mean, hey, it's three years.
Way to go, buddy.
Yeah, yeah, we're holding it down.
Are you guys doing the things you like? Um, anniversaries.
That air, like about the I used to have arguments with my now wife about this because she still has, like, reverence for the day that we like.
That was like this Vic, in my opinion, fake anniversary because we were married.
You know, you get to have one unless you're married.
Um, now we're going to Toronto this year.
I've never been have Really? That's really yeah way.
We let me think you're seeing run.
Yeah, you know, we're in a little separate celebratory.
So our problem is that my birthday's February 7th, Then it's Valentine's Day.
Then I guess it's a week.
And then her birthday's on the 27th and then we have our anniversary.
So some years were like, Yeah, let's try to celebrate everything.
And other years were just like, yeah, we're gonna celebrate like one of those things years, a celebratory here, which is good, but, you know, it's it's a lot to handle from February to March.
It's always fun, but it's like an overwhelming fun.
Um, who did DEMAR carol play last night? Yes, he did write very briefly.
I think you did.
I think you got him and Jeff Green.
And, uh hey, man.
Jeffrey was getting, like, real rotation minutes.
But it's against the Warriors, who are like, um, you know, yeah, not even real basketball there.
Uh, so the weekends is playing really well for them.
Yeah, he's like he had some stats about, like, What is he doing? The begins e and thing where he just please.
It's like the Wiggins really hot start to every single season, wherever he's like Oh, I think he's turned a corner.
He's just doing that because he's in a new.
It's like the classical guy gets traded and plays way above his head, and then she just understands the news cycles.
He's just like a marketing master.
He keeps his head to float just long enough to like trick people that his contract isn't in fact, one of the worst Max contracts in the league.
It's it's pretty genius.
So me on Austin Rivers, uh, really fun to watch one of the one of the quickest crossovers I've seen live I'm not.
I'm like, half kidding about that.
So my, um, my leg n ba fandom the broader fandom is always talked about this through the lens of fantasy in which Austin Rivers plays.
No part never has.
Um, so, like my knowledge of what he does well or not well, is just through these these little moments.
That was, that's That's the Austin Rivers.
What's the journey? Yeah, he's like a averaged three point shooter.
Like he's he'll have years where he's 30.
But, you know, do a little creation before that.
That's that's useful.
Yeah, he's fit them pretty well.
Like he's they just, you know, they'd like to have a bunch of guys that can handle the bull.
And if Harding doesn't have a shot, it's like nice Thio.
Give it to an Austin Rivers who's gonna happily pull up.
I like what their team concept is definitely there.
Like what they're trying to D'oh! Um, it's just a matter if it works and like they draw the right matches.
I like the Rockets.
They're my I guess there might kind of like a sleeper for the finals, which I didn't think I'd be saying, but I don't know.
It seems interesting.
Like I I like them more than like a Utah or even like a Denver in the West, which I don't think everybody would say, like air.
They're definitely I think they're the third highest ceiling of anything.
I mean, like, I think, as ever, like not first verses.
I mean, they're so good at just being interesting and doubling down on like, just put, like, in this case there, I feel like this is a massive endor*****t of just like Russell Westbrook getting rid of clear.
That is an interesting I mean, unnecessary, obviously.
Kind of think todo to sort of reach whatever ceiling you're hoping to reach.
Is that a dog? It is popped up was wining like crazy down there.
I did not train the separation anxiety thing out of her so good on me really, really good side.
As a parent, you you facilitated that you made it.
You hear that when you were not when I'm not here.
Is that a problem for you? Yeah, it's It's I really screwed that one up.
Um, so, yes, the dog will be hanging out.
Um, what was I saying? Oh, the Westbrook.
This is probably the most I've liked Westbrook since that, I guess, like the second half of the 2016 season.
Yeah, I think about I think that's 2017.
I think 2017 when he wanted to elect him as a player is like watching him night tonight.
You know, I really look like letting and be full full.
Westbrook, they're not trying.
Thio put any affectations on what he does, right, Which is smart.
I mean, I think you need to get him going and, like, get him comfortable in your system, more so than hard in like and honestly, it gives hard in a little bit of a rest.
Um, it's pretty smart what they're doing.
I didn't think they would go this route.
Um, I kind of I don't know if I I don't know where may I believe I heard that I remember who hired this from preseason.
But, um, might have been Jonathan Sharks of the ringer.
Could be saying that they should kind of give the Balto Westbrook and, like, sort of cater to him a little bit more.
Um, because he can't really playoff ball and hearted can They're doing it.
I think they would, you know, because hardens the face, that franchise.
So pretty interesting.
I mean, just just watching that last place I'm very interested to see, like in the zigzag paradox here like that was like an easy just pickle picking in the paint dumping off to Macklemore.
That was like the idea that they're not just going to Yeah.
I mean, they're playing a sort of very interesting game of like, they're not just stretching the floor in order to attack the paint.
So it's not like just a right quickly Shut up to people on SportsCastr dot com.
Yes, your boys Norm core.
Robert. Thanks for hanging out way.
Have a couple comments on twitch.
I believe I can't see those.
Believe what I saw, my guy. Wicked skinny.
So look at skinny garnets.
Uh, Garnet just talked about Austin on a pod somewhere, talking about how he came to visit Doc in Boston.
Somehow they ended up playing together.
Austin lost, and he was so hot at losing that cagey.
Knew you would make Cruz e think so.
You know, I have it.
Like on, like, microscopic text.
I'm looking at it on my phone, uh, playing each other in basketball.
Is that I think that's probably a one on one thing going link us picked any link? No, no, no, no.
So, yeah, they lost one on one of his and he was massively triggered about it, but kg So I thought that was interesting, because in cages mind, of course.
Yeah, uh, Austin Rivers, Uh, definitely one of those guys that, like, thinks he's a little bit better than he is, but, like, not in a detrimental way, like a kind of necessary way. Almost.
I'm like a big Austin Rivers, except for some reason, I was interested in who you guys are.
What good, Ross, You don't have a type.
I don't You could say like oh, like I don't know, like I feel like some people will say that I'm like, Oh, you must love Rudy Gobert And like, super like guys that have really have great rpm's, you know, top not abort.
Yeah, but then I also like Zach Levine and then Austin Rivers and guys like that, so I don't know what my type is.
How do you There's no question of that, too.
It's like, How do you define liking like cause For me, liking is always the perspective.
I want him not for the team that I root for.
But that's probably not how you like.
No, no, I just, like, enjoy watching them.
Uh, that's pretty much what it comes more just more.
That's pretty good.
I'm I'm covetous.
Nice of a couple of guys on this rock was run.
Really? About the Dan? Well, house down without one annual Dan.
Well, I d'oh, why do I bring up the guy? Don't I actually don't.
I mean, I'm assuming it's Daniel, right? That's gotta be There's a you.
Yeah, You know, you're a writer when you like.
Once you realize you're actually saying the person's name out loud, you're like, Oh, God, this is this Is it, like my back against the wall.
Now, there's no way of getting out of this.
How do you say, Dan? Well, houses way got here, Daniel.
It's like Samuel with the ****.
Yeah, this is well in.
Well, you think you have, like, Manuel? I don't Google just doesn't even recognize it.
It's like, What are you talking about? Keeps wanting to shoot me over to Daniel.
All right, that's gonna be a mystery.
Well, they're Westbrook.
This is what we need to get the random Rockets guy being like, Actually, it's I'm going to try.
You can try another Nacchio.
LeBron James knocks it down.
Assist first quarter for LeBron with five.
Let's Brook had, like, 40 something in this game, I believe when I had a big like a giant performance and this is where Covington had like a killer first game's being of guys showing out with a fresh slate.
So the Rockets are there really fun to watch defensively because the way they just swarmed guys, it's actually like a really, really bad matchup for, um for the for the Lakers because they just want to dish it down.
Two guys in the post.
Um, weirdly, that parallels pretty well to the Nets.
Like the way they defended and be yesterday.
Like I know Embiid went off, obviously.
But doubling and even digging a little bit in the post was like, definitely the way Thio to take that team down because, you know, they don't have a ton of shooters, they're gonna beat you.
I thought they did a pretty good job defensively.
It's just, um you don't have much.
It's really not playing their best ball right now, but still executing the Lakers, making a lot of terrible passes.
When you have a shorter team, you tend to force post ups tend to China.
Rhonda Rhonda not being good anymore.
I kind of refused to accept for the Lakers.
Um, I know you're Rondo guy, right? That's that's another one of your guys.
It's one of my favorite players all time.
Everything about Rondo talked about his connect.
Four thing I'm talking about there.
Yes, yes, I always think that's such a good thing.
Yes, run does a total weirdo, but I like him for it picked up my coups goes right at it.
Scores who thought he was pushed keeping a close eye on them.
Right now, as we speak, I want to see.
I want to see what you're seeing.
That's a classic 2020 Rondo thing is too tiny past fixing the tiny little dumb pig Almost day.
Yeah, yeah, I don't know.
Oh, Jerry, What's updated? Yes, he had an E b c schedule.
Yes, just east of the Raptors.
The Pacers thought about the Trailblazers keeping instead Street at ABC Saturday night, 8 30 Eastern time Lakers at the Warriors Or these games Just goto dot com or visit the No to Damian.
Are you working on your counter strike skills? This is gonna have his soon.
Okay, just f y i and then coming up short.
You know, I'm not opposed to carrying you, but I will.
Second quarter marble.
Chris weather forced from Staples in L. A.
KCP has been really good this year, interestingly enough, So if after being every time I think that about like a Lakers player, I found that the Lakers fans like hate like, so I feel like there's like, a fair amount of KCP.
Not like people don't like my wrong about that.
Well, I think that's so like my experience.
I'm just, like, lurking on Lakers.
Read it is that they don't dangerous place.
Yeah, I'm gathering.
It is a tough place to get a feel for how people like or do not like players, right? Gets a visa, but, uh, shots to actually follow the guys on nets. Read it.
Um, a couple guys on there, So, yeah, it was a bad shot.
Say, I wanna make sure I don't give a couple.
Let me look through that.
Looking for Dwight dunker.
Chris Webber is, like, openly hostile towards what the Rockets were doing.
Here s o many guy.
What was it? I was listening to the TNT pregame and a man like some of the like they were.
I think they were talking about the rockets for game.
It wasn't I mean, I guess the game they're playing at 10 party, but I was just like he's like, How much do you guys hate this cycle? It's incredible that little like older players were still so heavily against it. It's pretty crazy.
Um, yeah, it's kind of Well, I can't tell if it's like a twinge of jealousy or like, I don't know, It was like feeling Chris Webber in particular, would have been, like, really successful in this brand of basketball, Um, among a few others.
Like by the end of his career, he was, like, a pretty mean.
He was, like, definitely a midrange shooter like Big Man.
So there's that.
But, um yep, but he got rangy.
I'm fixing my shadow.
It's I want to shut out, Diego. Exactly.
My, uh, guys that I'm cool down. That's it.
I felt like I had to do better than that.
Theo Guilt sort of would have killed me the whole weekend.
Shouting out one Verse two is a big deal, all right, It is.
I Look, there's there's a guy there.
I think I look through.
I look through their advance and I was like, Oh, I only know, like, two people.
So this is probably probably could have kept this one in house, so I think I need t o go all out with this shot up.
I've gotta love going live.
You just start saying something and you're just like, Yeah, that was It's two hours.
There's gonna be at least two of those for May give you a lot more shadow.
I also have a fear of, like, blowing names now, so that is also gonna inhibit me from shouting anybody up way gonna make, like, a tear lists of I'm just gonna start doing a game with you is like finding really hard to pronounce the names and seeing what you come up with.
That's the way to do this.
Uh, say honest his name.
So I I honestly still deferred.
I go g on its more than I'm proud to admit that stuff because, you know, once it's in there, once you do it wrong for long enough, Once you start being a Te'o Pinson guy, Iet's it's the first thing you think of and then you have to edit it, you know? So what? That self, that amount of self editing, you're gonna have, like, a 10% you know, it's gonna get by us.
Yeah, he, uh, I'm happy he's not playing anymore.
Just because I don't have to say his name, just take it to everything that I think I get that once a week.
Now, I think it was Hunter the other day.
I shot out the 100 for always being on the screens.
But he said something along.
Well, he spelled it out.
Oh, and I didn't know what he was trying to say.
It first made a name of myself.
I hate to see it.
I hate to see it for Alex.
So, man, this is This is getting bad.
Hey, I hate to do another smelts.
Then we talk about guys here, but no, let's do it.
Okay, so we did the Katy Atkinson hair.
Uh, I didn't notice yesterday.
Honestly, by Yeah, I didn't either.
I honestly didn't notice my kids.
That's a busy, tried and true my give them Yeah, of just like, fixating on people's here.
I'm with that which I don't know, like he's got a strange because he's not losing his hair, but I guess he thinks he is.
He's like a hypochondriac, like hair loss, but I guess, or maybe there's something going on, but I don't know about these eyes on these food Rogaine, and he hasn't told me about it.
Just down to his eyebrows.
Bangs will go on this next time I see him get a free point of Caldwell, Pope is way off.
I was gonna say how the homies on SportsCastr I really wish that the sports guys guys gets feel free to use the chat chat words shot away.
Oh, this is nice.
Doesn't look at that little You're gonna like this, do you? I like Matt on stream Been, which were invested in his writing after your hearing him here.
And he always comes.
Correct? A lengthy, well researched pieces.
Oh, thank you, sir.
I do appreciate that wicked, skinny new article out today, Uh, talking.
A lot of numbers on rodeo school works are very favorable, and I'm just not quite sure why not playing.
Um, so go check that out for anybody tuning in.
Um, that's what I'm doing when I'm not on stream is just writing and go into film.
So yeah, he wouldn't know because I haven't said one thing about this living the dream zero play by play ****ysis that's our thing is this is you know, it's ah streaming mean.
That's that's right.
You know, if you tuned in a couple of times and, you know, we've only done this times now, you kind of know that we, uh we'll soon in fourth quarter will give a little bit of, you know, Yeah, well, break a couple things down here and there, but there's a three week old game.
I don't think there's that first incident we went deep cuts on the Russell way.
What are hardened shoes? So I might be a shoe.
I'm like the mike of shoes because they look like or you old a eyes.
Do you know that I know something.
Sneakers? I don't have any.
Like I have one.
I have a bunch of like blazers, Uh, and like, one pair of Jordans, but that's it.
I'm not like a like a shoe head.
I just Yes, so But I know a lot about shoes because I used to like, uh, sold them for a little bit in high school, which is the suburban **** on every flipping fuse.
Ever been rising? Living baby? I've been watching.
So why would a Gary V like a hole? And once you watch like to gary the videos on YouTube, the algorithm is just like ****ing you takes a more Gary V down your face.
If you like it, leave it going for 10 minutes, you'll get carried me back.
And so he's all about the sneaker flipping world, whatever.
But his version of it is so apparently n ba Specifically, trading cards are like crazy high value now because there were these, like, designer trading card companies that are making super limited run like platinum versions of their cards.
When you know, you get a tie on Williamson rookie card, that's like we're two k or something and get get a bulletproof case for ****.
Yep, yep, s o s.
So basically, I packed with NBA cards.
Now we're going for, like, 203 100 bucks apiece because you could pull first basketball Basketball cards were because you can pull like, apparently, like Luca, rookie card or Zion wimps.
American Carter, like it's like low six figures, at least, So they used to have these things.
I'm gonna forget what they're called, but they would be like, kind of like, I guess, Like, he recalled, like, refractor cards and they would boil a minute.
Yeah. Okay, so they're the same thing. Uh, yeah.
I have a giant baseball card collection sitting in California.
I'm hoping is worth money.
We'll have to go through that on the stream.
Something It would be down there.
I have some like I probably have way more.
Probably baseball cards.
And I remember, but yeah, I was really I was really That's kind of what got me into stats and stuff was like researching numbers of like, just like, how much money, I guess.
Like keeping track of like monetary, I guess.
Evaluations month, the month of these cards.
So, yeah, I don't know where I was going with this.
Sports cards could be worth a lot of money.
Like rising grind.
The only So I don't have the instinct to get the men to buy the thing.
That's low value, but I never flip it.
It's like Thio hoard it.
So my best version that was in college like first year of college.
I saw all these like Nintendo 64 games on Amazon for like be used for, like, 50 cents or something.
You get occuring of time spot like a little 10 of them, you know, just like, let's let's get g o.
And now they're, like, upto 30 or 40 bucks.
I did it, you know that.
I don't even need to sell them back.
I just I just I did the thing, you know, because you have that you have the feeling that you got this killer deal, right? Like God, man, this is what I want for so much money, But I won't e never get my **** together to fill orders on eBay.
Is losing money? Yeah, that's another thing is like, I'm just not organized enough for, like to start doing, like, actual good post office.
Like I just can't look, It's going Oh, man, you're giving.
More fuel for their fire.
Kenny Tiki torches fire Kenny's Tiki torches with Rudy Fax.
Yeah, that's the problem.
Uh, no, that's not what I'm trying to say.
I, uh So here's the thing that the tough part about road is that Chandler has been really good, like he's just been good.
And I I've been looking for ways to, like, try toe, you know, argue for him over Chandler.
But Chandler is just a smart, better and player that succeeded pretty much everything that I saw.
But, yeah, the Fire Kenny crowd has been crazy.
The amount of people calling for that last night and then concurrently calling for Mark Jackson.
It was like, all right, But I didn't see the markets for radical wanted Mark Jackson.
People like of it.
Mark Jackson. Try.
If you were out there, I want to meet you.
I want to know what it is.
Is doing that for you.
Aye, here's my thing.
I have a sneaking su****ion that it's really based in, like an appreciation for spirituality.
I swear, I think that that's a big part of it.
I like it's either that or he knows people.
He's like the Christ Warriors basketball.
That's that's his brand, Which is effective sense, Um, a man E.
But I think that's the only thing that he's got going for.
I was just like the mark active warriors in the most religious basketball coach.
You'll ever So that's what you're into.
Well, you know, nothing will motivate the Nets more than this song.
Dis Kyrie, Irving even believe in religion.
What do you think he believes in that? Um, this is a temple.
Put it thorny question.
Even the hard way that I think he thinks about nuts.
I wasn't I have no problem.
Traipsing into the stereo is It's just complicated with Kyrie.
Just just so I think that he thinks about it in the same way that he asked Brad Stevens, What's your definition of government? You know, it's like, uh, it's, like, painfully overwrought and, like, never doesn't really have any meat to it, you know? But it's like I'm thinking, I'm thinking more deeply about this and the rest of you.
Um, classic is sort of the vibe. I would guess.
Um or maybe he's just like mega religious.
It's either one of those two things.
Yeah, I could definitely could be one or the other, or it could be like, Well, I think we all have our spiritual entity.
Do you call it God? I call it I think I'd like a new age.
Christianity would be very fitting for him you know, sort of actually pretty Christian, But then, like also like, you know, But you can believe in Buddha, too, if you want fusing them all together.
Wow, that was all right, replied him.
I could feel like I'm plugged in right now.
There's a sort of like watching our been So I do.
I do like watching her love and I've tried, have started and stopped making to YouTube videos.
Long form YouTube videos about my appreciation of James Harden.
Um, I can't quite in snare exactly what it is.
Well, it's hard also be that guy, but it's like it's hard also not to be, like, super pretentious and annoying about just like appreciating, like the aesthetics of someone's basketball game without, like delving into this sort of just like I don't know, like you want to start like invoking types of music and ****.
You know, you're like, you've got to stop, you gotta turn it off.
What do you use that character? You know, what would you like? I didn't specifically do this with James Harden, but you know people, it'll have to be like jazz, like talk about Like basketball is like jazz and stuff you never hear about This kind of thing never happens to you.
And I don't know, I might not be in this red if you're reading, like the macro phenomenal book of bats of all those types of freak darko style writing stuff that works for them.
Well, not for me, but I'm just trying to basically figure out what it is that I like.
So I'm basically going I've talked about this, but I'm trying to go in through his flopping, Um, and learning to appreciate the flop thing is a good example.
We're watching right here.
You know what? I'm okay with it.
So I'm okay with thing that you need to like, if you're going to watch James Harden and try to find joy in it, which I I understand.
It's like, just not gonna have a lot of most people like if you I kind of think of it like as I like the way that I don't like making like boxing or something.
Like he's setting up patterns like very particular patterns and like getting his defender to react to those patterns.
And then he, like, subverts the pattern in very particular ways.
Andi does that like over and over again? Yeah, throughout the course of a season and like the only way that that really works is in chorus with the referee like being a bit too, because when you get someone off time, that means you get the fella.
That's a huge right, Um so, like, I think it's it's it's fun to watch him turn, but only in a very particular way, which is, like, actually, like, really, really watching him.
It's It's sort of like Here's like another dumb ****ogy to throw on top of this.
Like if you've ever not liked the food to take the food, I think that's the way to start liking It is to like, Don't don't shy away from you.
Want to start eating anchovies, but you don't like anchovies? Get really Just eat some ****ing anchovies.
You have to like like don't hide them, make them like the finger and try to figure out well in court.
The main course right? Don't try to sneak him into something, because that's that's what's offensive about it.
So I feel like that's sort of like James James Harden like you really eat that anchovy digested watch it closely and then you write like you also accept that he's gonna bait the referees like that's part of what gives them the space to do what he does.
Like I always find it amazing that he gets so many like wide open layups because it breaks my brain.
I'm like, Why can't He's not overly quick.
So why is he wide open at the rim? And for some reason, like in thinking about that, it made me appreciate him a little bit more.
Um, and then the step backs air fun like I just I I think that's a fun movie.
I don't care if it's right on the edge of a gather stuff in a travel.
I just think it's interesting shot that made him way more interesting as a player.
But now he's interesting, like the way you just never know what's really coming.
And the second you even put like a little bit of a hand on him like he's gonna use that against you and I.
I don't understand why that's annoying because it stops time and whatever, but you, you know, I'd rather watch them and completely control the game and just outsmart the competition and kind of loudly fly it the room and stuff like that.
And also, like, more than anything else, like he's always on the kind of bleeding edge of the evolution of what's allowed in a basketball game.
So, like you're kind of you're the kind of person that's like your old boomer far, and you just want everyone to look like Bob Hughes E.
Then you're gonna hate your agents, aren't there's no I, kid.
You're not gonna hear what we're saying.
But if if you are interested to seethe like how, you know, like if you were, if you fought tooth and nail against the euro step and now finding some of level of appreciation for the euro step, you might want to take another look at James Harden and see why he's interesting.
Wow, beautiful like that.
One got married that it was a good one.
That's a killer one.
Are you being so I actually like I like, I just hate Antonio.
Don't you think like maybe I needed you have to want.
So that's a thing with me.
Like if I find that I don't like a food I hate that I don't like it and I forced myself to like it.
So that's like a a lifelong journey to do with anything.
You know, I didn't like torturing yourself.
Dio didn't love Cilantro for the longest time.
Now I could eat a whole head is launcher to the face absolutely hate cilantro slot So great.
So it is so gross there is that is that that I felt the exact same way.
And then I, like, had Thio like do exposure therapy to my cell phone.
Now the thing is, it's like there's a certain kind of like, um, that's sort of like maybe this is like traipsing into stupid, stupid territory, but, um, sort of like soap reflecting on like It's not that it's not like it's not its fault.
It's my fault that I don't like it, you know? Wow, you know, it's not you, it's me.
But I mean, there's also stupid things.
Like he put ketchup on pizza.
Whatever. You don't have that stupid.
You know, I I watched.
This just like I was watching a clip of somebody doing that, like in the background of like something like filming behind them and whatever.
And just just dousing a piece of pizza with catching.
That's so gross.
Yeah, so? So? So I'm not blaming myself for thinking about that's gross.
Yeah, but like what if maybe you just need to, like, you know, have a whole pizza with a whole bottle of catch up.
If I have, you got to use your studies.
That's an interesting thing.
Because, like some people I think would think of James Harden as a sketch with pizza with ketchup.
Oh, and I think it has an answer for the whole thing.
Is that what What is he exactly is he break down? Holy breakdown.
I was trying to think about what does he see? A Brussels sprout, like most people hate him.
But the select few that ripped that, like him, really like him.
Brussels sprouts is the one I want.
I've actually been really encouraged to find that people are into Brussels.
Plus now I'm I'm indifferent number, mostly because of you.
Like teriyaki on that.
Okay, just cook the living hell out of exactly Thanks Passes over the way.
Insights into Avery Bradley season Go on the spot mats on the spot fire folder.
Uh, he basically he's a good cutter.
Uh, we've been while you ponder this deeply.
I've been ignoring Chet.
Um, Captain Marvel is 33.
Thanks for hanging, dog.
What are your thoughts on this being One of the worst late game offenses as outlined in the athletic? Um, uh, which article I'm always looking.
I have been on a the athletic.
I mean, they've had some awesome ness stuff lately.
Like, really, really good **** up to your boy.
Um, shaper, Schafer. Schafer.
I'm blowing it now, but shut out to you.
You know, you are, um he's been awesome.
He's been so good.
It's strange that so many people are questioning.
He's been going small when they're likely playing 40 chests.
I could see them waiting for Tristan Thompson.
Recently, women Germans brought was bought out in essence trading capella for humble Covington.
And either one of those guys is a nice all and moved I am.
Yeah, I'll be interested to see, like if, um, like, like, let's go.
Let's take a look at Tyson Chandler's minutes, you know? Is he Is he getting any play? No, I think he's effectively done right.
I think that they were like, All right, Uh, I think this is This is not going well, him and him.
And, uh, nay, nay are pretty much done, right? I think that I think that they If I had to guess, I'd actually be kind of surprised if they went back to trying to replace Clint Capela.
I feeling I think they like this.
Yeah, I feel like this is an end.
The fact that they have those guys sort of just languishing on the bench is like, very low usage utility, maybe like sideboard players.
I think they feel pretty comfortable.
Yeah, like if it's really if the matchups.
I looked at that angle.
Yeah, that was That was that was like that Christmas game between I'd side because I'm weird.
I rewatched the Lakers Clippers game from Christmas and I forgot al bad.
Some of those camera angles were do they're really trying to do a whole lot on, like, the timing of it is so bad.
Yeah, it's like I feel like there's a time and place for that, but I I also don't know if they're really ever is it just like It's just so jarring to go all of a sudden.
You're like, Oh, well, okay. I guess I'm fine.
Actually, I'm right next to the look what they do the opposite of what you would want, which is, like, right now, Like, as he's just entering this offense and probably like calling out play.
Give me the close up.
Give me a weird, like, drone scanning shot of them.
Like getting into their offense.
Not for the emphatic like dunking, like, you know? Yeah, I want to get it pretty on an unobstructed view.
Captain Marvelous, I think, said something.
And wicked skinny.
Look, it's getting next thing we're gonna have WW cuts to fan reactions.
That's exactly right.
Wait to get someone from the Mets, the Britain brigade on the stream so that we can get them to start instigating this chant that I'm stealing from Daniel Bryan from the WSB where he just goes.
Steward, Nets, Nets, Nets chan like that.
The Brooklyn chant for me is so cringe that yet Yeah, but I don't know if you can replace that the Brooklyn chant.
It's like because now it's in, uh, in uh, s O Brooklyn by somebody in fabulous, which is, like, now become the anthem.
Fabulous was all over that brand when they first did the first season in Brooklyn.
Like he was all over the nets.
Bring, um, yeah, he's Yeah, he's had a big e.
What do you do for the all Star? He did something for all so we could I work.
So I kind of, like, missed a good deal of it by choice, But, uh, but I'm trying, remember? I think he did like the pregame song or something like that.
Like Hype Song for the contest in three point contest, I think.
Get a big weekend for him. Nice.
That's family he's really trying to, like, intertwine like his with that would be a who knows where fabulous would be today.
Yet I don't know.
Uh, it's been a while since he's had, like, a really big hit.
What was his big That out with the hook on B. That was one.
He had a couple so into you.
That's a great one.
Um, what else? There's one from his second and third album, Thistles.
Something I'm gonna look up and probably get way too locked into because no one wants to hear a fabulous, is it? I do want to hear about this, but I also we need to figure out a way to get into this MBA trading card market.
And I didn't know that you have massive collection of baseball cards.
We gotta get into a CZ part of our content patrol earlier way.
It's The problem is it's about a six hour flight away from me.
Well, I mean, I'm saying what car? You should begin as part of our stream opening packs of basketball cards.
Hoo, hoo hoo hoo! Whoa! Am I Move my mind of that one.
You're talking about getting marketing content.
Just make fake nice Gary V an Unboxing Very youth group of us Unboxing.
There's gotta be a big and be occur, you tear.
You know what? What are they? Let's look us up.
Basketball pack opening Seems like a good little keyword search on YouTube.
Let's see what we're looking at.
Get in there. That's not enough mash.
Wow! 61 k views.
All right, I will say from a top from, like a top search in that That's not great.
But there's a market here.
Yeah, you're like, Yeah, like if you look up, I don't know, like when you look up a key word you want to see, like the top couple of results on ah on YouTube to be anywhere between, like, the 405 100 k, maybe in the Millie's, because there's just so many users on it, So this one might be a little too mish bythe.
And are they just It's just them with their hands opening the yeah.
That way we can use our beautiful faces.
**** Game was watching these Sameer Linkous, 13 minutes.
I got your picture in picture fire.
Fire filter indeed, All right.
Oh, yes, there's a great YouTube intro already.
It's actually not.
Is that and people that overdue their YouTube? Paltrow's on my favorite thing where it's like what you do, what is going on? Captain Marvel, 33 says.
What's your hottest take on the team this year? And even this is gonna be too hot for even Matt Brooks to handle everything that's good about our offense or now happens when DeAndre Jordan's in the game, telling what sort of right right now when things were actually working and looking good.
It's when he's in the game and it's I'm telling you, there's There's something magical about it.
I mean, just think about I mean, like this.
Okay? There's times when Jared Allen's are growing the basket, Captain Marvelous loves it.
Put in my own fire, folks.
That's a huge fire filter.
Mike's gonna hate me.
I just d m todo like I just broke the biggest, Micro added.
And Mike's gonna block me.
Wow, that's hot.
Takes to the DeAndre.
Jordan is the guy is the key to a championship.
No, I mean, that's I mean, here's the thing.
It's it's really low stakes because I wish DeAndre Jordan could play a full effective 29 minutes.
That's that's all I wish, because there's like the stretch is good.
He does lose steam, that's for sure.
This is what, um, we're gonna wash it.
All right? Sweet.
The way they can't.
I can't picture it.
Picture it, But all right, this'll happen the way I have a little time.
Ever did great killing.
I'm keen back in that, I would say, is the Avery Bradley experience.
So I I was at the Lakers Nets game, Uh, went with my parents wonderful time.
Um, but we're in a section of I mean, that might have been the whole stadium, but I was definitely in a section heavy with Laker fans.
And I had to really like The funny part is when you go, uh, with parents and stuff like that, like my parents are a little bit quieter and they don't quite under stand everything that's going on.
So with that said, I'm hearing a lot more what's going on around me.
And there were two, I would say heavily sauced like, you know, very south.
Very, very So just, uh, Laker fans behind us.
And they had a lot of not so nice things to say about Avery Bradley.
And there, I guess, big expectations for him, even though he's looked cooked for the last couple of years.
But that's when I learned I was like, Oh, I guess he's not having a good um, he was the thing about Avery Bradley's.
He really only ever had, like, one and 1/2 good seasons like Hey, was good as a Celtic, the classic Brad Stevens.
But also he wasn't always good as a Celtic like the Wooden here, that he was good.
He like he was weirdly averaging 15 and eight or something like in rebounds, a za shooting guard.
He's just like this, like super weird, genre busting, heavy rebounding guard, which is awesome, like Short.
Too short? Yeah, so, um, that's super fun and eminently readable for, um, And it's amazing, Like I feel bad for guys that just do that, like, have one really good year, like a few good years.
Get back to it like Candy Martin.
It's sort of a journey I was going to say, like they had him in Evan Turner or like the classic great year with the Celtics.
Avery Bradley skates.
He got traded Thio.
I think Detroit because they didn't want to play him for Marcus Morris, which ended up being a really good trade.
And then Evan Turner got absolutely paid in Portland aid.
So I haven't turned, I think.
Did he get bought out? I know he's with Minnesota.
I'm like, So is Evan Turner's appeal that like he is like a There's a system like That's kind of the appeal.
Ready years where he was like a good passer in Boston.
Yeah, it's like if you really need a ball handler, I guess you could use him.
Yes. He was averaging five.
This maybe two games.
Shooting garbage percentages like true garbage percentages.
So it's a tough sell.
I don't really understand it.
Rockets rebound of interest in this case because I know they're rebounding.
Rates are really bad in this new experiment.
Which makes sense.
Well, somebody who was I was listening to, the more you talk about, um, rebounding is like so his understanding of this is which is really interesting and sort of kind of perfectly Maury ish is he's like the rebounds don't matter.
As long as they don't lead two points.
That's like his.
Okay, so how you like you're doing some really long division to, like arrive at that calculation and I assume he's done it.
But it's an interesting way of thinking about what on earth was that on the screen Holy cows, that Rob Klink emerged with yours? My goodness, let's tell you, that was such a classic like, Hey, Weed's legal in California.
It was a really stoned social team moment.
I don't know what that skinny so plugged.
Says Turner is working out the Clippers right now. Still working on buyout.
As of six days ago, she's we could scheming, got sources.
Feel like we could give you Is Daryl Morey? That's what I think.
It's getting good. That's interesting.
Evan Turner to the Clippers.
I've probably missed that when I decided I was gonna disappear five days during the All Star break.
Yeah, I kind of think I saw you doing that thing.
That looks good.
Oh, my God. It was nice.
I was like, Wow, I don't know why I don't, like, obvious.
I can't just be like All right, guys, uh, in a week, But I'm absolutely gonna disappear.
I think way spoke that nonverbally through the internet into existence.
Yeah, Yeah, yeah.
No, it's it's good to do this season so long, and it's like, I don't know, it's it could be a little monotonous.
The times changing.
Right. Dude, game camera.
Wow. This is getting eyes.
Dwight Howard joke in here somewhere.
There's a Dwight Howard joke.
Uh, I'm not gonna make it, but there is one.
I know the feeling that he had there was like, This is this is normal and then be like, No, it's not normal.
I gotta get these pants on.
I have tights on this time out.
I mean, to be fair people workout in just those tights.
It's always the guy squatting to acquire it.
Why? I don't even got that much.
But the every time I go in, there's a guy squatting and just tight, so I'm like, All right, dude, dude, I had the most holy I stick, man.
Blink blink Campaign of I was on for 15 months did not go once.
The thing is, they're so competitively priced at like, I think it was like a specialty.
I was paying, like, $12 a month, which is and made to feel guilty about not going, but not enough to actually go, right? Right.
I've gotten about three, and every time I'm like, yeah, look, I pay more for a six pack in that.
Yeah, and I usually go the six pack, which is why I don't have a six pack.
So? So Nicely done.
That was it right there.
Yeah, I think I also just like So I will occasion, maybe like once a month.
I'll go for a run.
That's sort of what I do.
And I talked myself into this.
I'm gonna start running now and then never happens.
There's something really gross about, like a ba*****t gym.
And in New York City, there's, like, a very particular, like frat house funk to it that, like they can smell the beer sweating out of people, like sort of Yeah.
So the problem of the blink right near me is it's right next to and I hop a taco Bell and pizza spot.
So, Mike, you'd I just see.
Like that place smells like really gross sports.
Like there's no way that people don't go to one of those three places first and then go working.
Look, I don't I don't want to do with it.
You know what's a good? I'm trying to think of a good, uh, good Taco Bell.
What's a really stinky thing you could get a talk about? Um I mean, pretty much everything's made out of this like four stinky ingredients.
Well, it's like a five layer burrito.
Like I don't need to smell all five layers of your burrito when I'm working out.
I mean, I made homemade, cheesy, ready to crunches last week.
Jet with Baja sausage, Which nice. Wow.
Basically just mayo and white vinegar.
Are you mean in the kitchen? Is that what you're saying? I am Loki, actually, spend some time.
That's lucky. You. I am not.
It is not somehow figure out a way to build this into the brand of like, just like **** boy cooking tips.
You know, that's the kind of something not necessarily.
****, boy. Somewhere in that room.
Whole workshop It.
All right? Yeah.
Uh, that's our stream comes into thing.
You showing at a roasted chicken while washing like a month old, and then a baseball card here, even quadrant of the stream will have a different, completely unrelated thing going on.
Or we have three different screens going on.
Yeah, that's what I'm saying.
It's like, this is to you, but you're just going on here.
I wanted to get more of those things seem related.
Way could see Mrs Turner got a welcome graphic on Wolves, Twitter.
And within 48 hours, he's on a plane to L.
Twitter is a good Oh, there, there, there, actual account Have been hearing the wolves.
Twitter is a good fall for the last couple weeks. Excellent.
Uh, switch it up a little bit.
Um, yeah, Their twitter is great.
I follow a couple of their beat writers, uh, which is making me sound super suss for the sole desire to get the wolves.
Matt Brooks name is our DEA there.
So I've got to be riding on tonight's It's your cementing it even further.
It's really the opposite.
Yeah, it's, um, pretty good.
Pretty good beat writers, but their twitters animated very good social team.
Do you think? Good.
I want to do, like, best and worst social teams in the moment when, um, Karl Anthony towns is meeting the ends of the Russell at night on the runway with a D'Angelo Russell T wolves jersey.
Do you think that there was a moment where you felt like this is a little much This maybe I'm a little embarrassed about this.
I feel like when he was like, give bringing, Give it, getting him the jersey.
He was like I could go either way.
And D'Angelo Russell super nice guy was like, Dude, that's awesome.
Thank you so much like a cool guy.
But if he was a little bit middle of the road on that reaction, Carly Cool felt a little weird about it.
I mean, here's the thing like the weird like pounds is a more higher pedigree.
Players, I would say.
So you know, a little like desperate vibes like a little desperate there.
Yes, yes, let's calm down a little bit, all right, because it's something about it being likes super bitter cold and nighttime.
Yeah, it's like it's almost like you've been airdropped like a life resource that's like like, you don't know of a little bit like, Oh, what's up? Like shake his hand looking like, you know, may have well been a sign that said, like sent help like and like he's like an emergency ration started.
Yeah, definitely was like a big like I would literally like contemplating retiring before you showed up here.
Now the nice part.
I was happy for Russell because when they when he got out of the plane and walked into the airport.
I think that was I think that was the airport E Think that's the same Paul Airport could be wrong.
Not even sure if there is one.
But, uh, yeah, that's that was made up.
Um, there was a big crowd of people cheer him on.
I was really happy for for Russell in particular, because he, uh, definitely the kind of, you know gold stick kicked him out of the door a little bit on the way out.
So it was nice for him to have a bunch of people so excited for me.
It was probably the most warm reception he's gotten since Brooklyn.
I think that's his destiny To is just to be, you know, on mid level teams, but really well liked.
Hey, you could occasionally an all star like conversations.
You know, you are a reserved here in there.
It's a life I got off to a rocky start.
He was hurting getting of the year, but recently has played very well.
What's your what is Mike's thought on Cosmas hair? That's a great question.
I've never asked.
God, you gotta ask.
He's really only looking for fullness.
So I think he like he doesn't he doesn't care about the color of it is just looking for whether it's fingers.
Oh, this is Oh, uh, Mark IV. Morris.
I just bought out by Detroit.
Oh, that's interesting.
I want a Morris man.
That's a big piece.
Wow, that's a big where.
I mean, the nets won't sign him so we can shut that down.
I don't even want to look at Twitter.
I don't want to do it. I don't want to do it.
It's gonna just D'oh d'oh, d'oh! Who? We've, uh Te'o.
All right? Uh, yeah.
No, um, he's a free agent next summer, so it doesn't matter where it goes.
I mean, I guess like, he's not like you.
I don't think you're gonna cater the season to making him feel comfortable, so they will re sign with you.
I don't think Mark IV Morris is one of those guys, but he could swing.
I mean, he's about as close as it gets to being abi.
Okay, that could swing a Siri's a little bit.
I don't even know if I'm willing to go that far? No, I feel much.
You must have something.
Rockets that Eiko, our backup center.
Um, Twin reunite reuniting twenties.
Those were some fun. Phoenix years. Right.
I'm gonna go see.
Someone to check checking Twitter.
Paging Sean Mark Classic. Told you.
At Brooklyn Nets.
Why not, huh? People do realize the nets aren't going anywhere this year, right? It doesn't.
There's gonna be a free agent next summer, so you're doesn't effectively really do anything.
We'll get skinny saying Lakers Twitter has already claimed him.
Oh, yeah, that's pretty much it.
Oh, man, I'm taking the charge.
Yeah, it's interesting, too, because there's like, I feel like when you're a fan of a team, there's then there's, like, a sub genius where you're like, either, and like like, you have ironic tendencies and your fandom versus, like, you are a straight laced like I am a fan.
And that means I'm a just a fan.
And those types they they are like they believe in, like, a like, a whole moral situation that's like tied to, like, always, trying your hardest and like, you know, there's like a really sort of like hunky dorey ethics system baked into like that kind of phantom that I really, truly can't relate to you.
I know it's why wildly popular.
It's if I could tap into that.
That would be better for us.
It's unfortunately, outside of my purview.
Um, I'm gonna yell my dog, hold up.
A good point that I'm trying to make is that the people that are hoping for that are plugged into the Nets, just like rooting for this season to continue to go.
Well, I hate I hate to say that you'd be working for other reasons, like Watch it for her future development.
Divorce yourself from caring about the winds.
Open up your heart.
Open up your dark heart.
The irony of trying to win basketball games.
See, here's the problem is that I don't think the Nets are going up so I can understand why people would want to get Morris.
Since it seems like they're only gonna play that's down the stretch, like, why not get better? Best.
So I kind of get it.
But we'll also, from Morris's perspective, he's gonna want to go to a title contender, which the Nets firmly aren't so yes choice.
He's gonna have a bunch of teams after inferred, you know, handing out Bettman's well since Kyrie was the issue could be that we're now.
You know, I was just watching the ringer.
The Rhine was still a thing that, um you know, him sort of doing an encapsulation of each fan base eso get.
It's really good, but it's amazing.
So much of the Kyrie Irving they're still drives the Boston media understanding of itself and everything.
It's really they're ready to totally blame that dude for everything, which is, like, weird.
It's very I mean, like, everyone talks about Boston.
I like to do that, too, but I hate Boston sports.
Um, like we talked about like the taco fall.
Like like the ****in circus around watching that did play basketball that's like yet bordering on like, dehumanizing at this point.
And that feels like the kind of thing that's very like there's only like Philly in Boston are really the only places that could that would want to do that.
But like, it's like a I think it's really a Boston thing, though, that like, Yep, you are a spectacle here to be like here for my entertainment kind of thing, right? Well treated, talking for like, the Elephant Man is getting really awkward.
Yeah, it is. Yeah.
Now, like so I don't know the Kyrie go back to that a little bit.
Everything is weird because that seems like, really fun.
Like they're really, really fun.
I really think they have a chance, Like a better chance than I originally thought to come out of the East like it's all kind of hinges on what happens with Tatum, but something's really happening with that.
There's a chance he's gonna be like a top 15 guy by the end of next year.
I think there's a chance, Um, and he's like this real two way player that's got a little bit of like Paul George ISMs to him, and it's like I don't understand why there's still, like, even focus on carrier big.
There's a there's a decent chance that he's a better player by Kyrie Irving by the end of next year.
And like the here's the like.
As far as I understand it big sleight is that he said he was going to resign.
It's like it's like, Okay, that's fine.
I mean, you know, that sucks, But your team is fine, like you're you're actually gonna outperform which you were last year, so I just I don't know.
I'm I understood it for the first couple of months and, like, maybe that's just gonna be a thing forever.
But I don't know if it's that big of a deal, but, you know, I'm sure I would feel different about Boston.
There's something over to it, though.
It's something about Kyron's personality, like they really want to be a comment he made.
It was like, I think, like, you know, addition by subtraction arguments, whatever.
That's that's fine.
That's fair. Like it.
You think that he's like a ball stopper for, like a more egalitarian offense? Fine, but if you're like thing like he was sewing like tumors into the fibre of your team like I think that that's ah harder argument to make in a worse argument to make, you know, just like straight up.
I don't think he even said he didn't handle things correctly, so I think that that is.
That's why is like the way he kind of ostracised some of the young guys a little bit.
I understand it from that perspective, but at the end of the day like that, that's a year ago.
It doesn't matter at this point.
It just doesn't like it. It doesn't matter.
It's we're getting almost a year.
It takes so little for those Boston fans to feel like, massively aggrieved that sort of.
It's sort of the ghost goes into, like, entitlement culture, franchise once you've won that much or like yeah, have been good for a long time.
Like the Kendrick Perkins thing that he was talking about.
Kyrie Irving's You watch that the I'm done with her.
So he's like a complete like he's borderline was like it was kind of a psychotic thing to say on air, which was, I think they were doing okay, see game or something made him in O K. C. Boston.
But it's playing Boston and he was doing the cover, the color announces, and he was like, Anytime I think of like, here's the thing about Boston Celtics.
Once you're on the team, you realize how well the fans travel for Boston, how much they love it.
So on so forth and like you realize what a special franchise it is.
And then he's like, That's why I like the way.
Like whenever I think of Kyrie Irving, you like it makes me sick like really loud.
So Kendrick Perkins just became 40 years older.
All of a sudden, just thinking very puke up my 50 sliders.
Eight God, if I could set a hard screen on Curry. Not right now.
Whenever I think of Kendrick Perkins.
Well, one, I think of the best Kendrick Perkins May of this year was him talking about, like hooping at 2 a.m.
In honor of Kobe and just the sheer amount of like means that came out of that.
Like people just being like you.
Imagine, you just you wait, Govern.
You hear the pitter patter? It's slamming.
Fade away, shot off his back for you, man.
I'll forever think of him like short arming jump shots, not even like the little like jump hooks that will forever.
And I remember being like Why, honestly, why has this guy not been bought out by, uh, by the thunder because I like that thunder team.
And it was he was, honestly, the bane of my just watching Kendrick Perkins play was he was just so disheartening.
Figure for sure he gives credence to this.
So here's an interesting little factoid for you.
Um, I can make this into a guessing game.
So what percentage of people over seven feet 70 tolar over, um of the Lakers between 20 and 40.
What percentage of them will ever play in the NBA, but yeah, well, you lost me.
So of the seven foot people in America again, all of them, what percentage of them will play in the NBA? Do you have this number on it? I know this number.
Boy, that's that's a good one.
Um, I mean, how many people are seven feet, like? Okay, uh, let me stop dancing around.
What is it, like, 35%.
Is it higher than that? So it's 6% so 6% of if you're seven feet tall.
But it's I mean, it's hard because it could be anything in the n b a in the envious.
So one and 20 year going. Okay.
How many played professional basketball.
Um, because that that I would Yeah, that's an interesting one.
You're making money off basketball n ba okay, And be that stupid? No, I mean, that's That's pretty good This'll look also talks about Does it create bit about, uh, like, using NBA's playersnames as determined like like scouting for potential NBA players like you could use names to sort of, like, get get a approximation of players will actually make a professional level from, like a year fall committed by So, like the odds.
So there's a bunch of other things, too, so basically like So it goes into this sort of larger logical fallacy that, you know, players who come from harder, like family environments, like harder cir***stances growing up, are better at basketball or have a better chance because they have, like the dog in them and all that, which is just like, statistically way not correct.
If you were like, especially, you're born to a former player, whatever and have the resources that you have, like a insanely better chance of making it to the NBA.
That's what I was gonna ask, cause I was gonna say I feel like that If you're if you're like a step hurry giveaway.
Better chance than you know, whatever.
Like the Seth Curry, right? Yeah.
Um, so And it's not just because of like, that's interesting.
It's so it's like a combination of resource is access like it's a bunch of different things, but yes.
So basically what you do also is you could lose like that.
You can build a data set out of people's names.
So if you have what they think, the metric is like uniqueness, like most unique character forms.
So, like you have a name and many other people have, like LeBron, for example, which is why LeBron is such like a category busting statistical anomaly of a super human being.
Um, you have a less good chance of making the MBA.
So, like, um, if you have, like names that are like replicable, So if you see, like the same ones over and over again like this, typically have a better chance of making the via weird.
And that thing ties back into class systems, you know, like larger data sets of wealth.
Wow, Generational Wilson stuff, huh? Interests Weird, really good book and really recommended everybody.
Seth Stevens date with.
There's a lot of good stuff about baseball to your baseball.
That's what's it called.
It's called Everybody Lies.
It's also, I mean, goes way out.
So it's just basically about like ****yzing big data sets.
It doesn't say about like politics.
And so it was a great bit about it, about horse racing, an American pharaoh on.
And it was like the first use of computer ****ytics to arrive at, like the value of a horse thing.
This guy who was a data ****yst for like Wall Street for years quit his job to start working on horse racing because, he said, he found that everything in horse racing was being done.
All of the estimations about who would be a good which horse would be faster, whatever was being done just on lineage.
And that was a really bad just like, you know, I'm not very much about genetics, but enough to know that that's not a really good way of actually arriving at good predictors.
He quit his job like went deeply into decs running tests on what's physical attributes made for the fastest horse, and he found that there was a massive anomaly in the left ventricle of the heart of the, which has four ventricle valves.
Whatever very particular part of the heart.
If you had a larger like it was dilated, larger than normal, you have the chance for, like, a really fast worse.
And so American Pharaoh was, like, away big out liar on the size of that particular palate of the heart.
And the client that who had bought the horse was gonna sell it for $150,000.
And the guy was like, You cannot under no cir***stances treat this words the most important horse in a lake.
Maybe history s so so, Uh, yeah, There's this whole thing about, like, his client was about to get rid of this.
Like course he picks from.
Random pack, huh? Sorry, wasn't it? Well, is it a historical horse? Like as American Fear is like the one I don't either of you.
But apparently it was sort of like maybe the best words ever guess Interesting, passable were sat up American hero, American Pharaoh.
That was a filter for American Pharaoh.
What's going on? So that was tangential now good.
Tangential is welcome, but it's it is.
It is this stream.
Maybe that's what it is.
That's what we call it.
There's something there.
It's better than my signature.
Whatever I was starting to say I should.
Significant game rewatch is significant game.
Nothing says nothing says riveting and S CEO.
Like the word significant you even mildly significant.
We should decent game, everyone middle of the road.
Yep, there's so much for many.
There weren't any.
Let's check the slate.
Let's check the slate the next couple of days.
If there's anything coming up, Yeah, we could do like there will be re watching next.
So I'm saving a couple of games that I've missed that I want to re watch in the summer.
I don't know what you're assuming.
We'll still these training stuff in the summer.
I feel like 100%.
That's what it's gonna be popping the hardest.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking.
Literally the hardest time to do a street.
Uh, yeah, I'm assuming we'll start doing that in the summer.
I never I actually never caught the the first Raptors game.
I love this five out offense for us.
Just driving lanes every time.
Um, I never saw that first Raptors game work. Kerry said 37.
So I'm gonna want to rewatch that eventually figure we might as well turn that into one of these.
And then I wouldn't mind seeing the, uh, the Kyrie game in totality, um, against, uh, the bulls. Sorry.
That was not specific way.
We're on our 30.
It's I'm going to start cleaning.
What's up with Alan Velocity 88.
Oh. Are you OK after? Yeah.
Bad matchup yesterday.
I'm gonna leave it at that.
He, uh he has a problem is a problem with, um, multi dimensional offensive centers who are just bigger than him.
If they're smaller than him, he can work with it.
But that's the thing to like.
Now these guys like Yokich sort of.
Indeed, model is gonna be really tough for him.
Yeah, I mention to see if it does.
There's, like, all this stuff like last year when Yokich was coming along.
And indeed, what's playing well on Davis was just being gave us the way they double is so smart on these post place heart have difficulty getting shots off.
I mean, I might kind of watching this because this is crunch time.
This is Oh, he just got nails of me in the ****.
And punched in the mouth.
Now it hurt so bad to get pummeled.
White James Hardin, who has just he is weirdly like, built like a brick **** house.
Oh, so you know, you're talking about girth *****es being a thing.
I don't remember where I heard it.
They might have from Daryl Morey talking about the girth ***** of his *****.
I was like, **** Brian would love this is vindication at the highest level.
Second mean, Margaret, I think we're speaking.
It's not the same language but there, Jason.
I still have some level of tether Thio, traditionalists, traditionalism.
Yeah, and maybe that's my fault.
You know, Maybe that something I've gotta exercise, you know, you got to go all in on the girl.
I think I think I would If I are managing a team, they need a thick seven footer to that would just to go all in.
I'm trying so hard Aaron Baynes? Yeah. Oh, yeah.
It was hideous. Three's. He takes, too. Yes.
Where is your phone flake, ****ie? Oh, that's perfect.
Oh! Oh, that's so good.
He's top of my list for sure.
Yeah, he's great.
I was just recently poring over his stats, like the fact that he's never played like on a really meaningful, meaningful playoff like campaign is both, I guess, makes sense.
But also, like, is a crying shame.
And probably you might never do that unless he comes back and starts actually flattering to this Lakers team, which is it's unlikely.
Unlikely? Um, Lake, just looking his best reference like his was doing a season of 27 13 on, like, really good percentage is like he was ****ing sick, like a steel on 1/2 a block and 1/2 like everything just right down right down the lane.
Just phenomenal stats.
Um, yeah, he, uh he has become so forgot now, in a way that is, like, jarring.
Almost even I t who had maybe one and 1/2 maybe two and 1/2. Really good seasons.
Just part of it.
It's still playing but his name at least comes up.
You know, when you're part of it is also that he played in Boston, which is one of the bigger MBA markets.
That is, but you know, like it's funny how him and I t kind of we're just like they were top of the league, like M V P Caliber guys.
And then it's like both done because of injuries.
But yeah, the markets, like best center in the league for a couple of years.
It was consensus, I felt like, But just let Russell do you work at the elbow.
So this is why no way get each other because it's like they stop shooting.
That's a terrible It's a terrible shot.
But you do need to placate Russell Esper and you don't want a shooting threes? No.
So, like take the shot.
The shooting, like 44% adverse, is the one shooting 23.
Yeah, that's actually where the math says two's better than threes like that.
That's the classic that's like, really think gets a green, that is.
That's actually probably what I think of first, when I think of rustle us and those like not not contested threes to like You like eating out in your mind? You think that that's, you know that that is kind of testing Robert in a second.
The Rockets and they really smoked him to end of game curb stomping here.
I'm wondering what level of attention is being paid.
Thio, Um Troy Daniels.
Efficacy by position over time.
Like I imagine, like a center who's just hauling his ass up and down the court, just like we talked about DeAndre Jordan.
But that's loses so much steam.
Like I'm wondering if there's larger data sets about that for a bigger guys.
Just endurance wise efficacy of bigger players towards the end of the game.
For me, you know what? How do you do? Give you some speed and distance numbers so everybody loves Thio.
Take dumps on N BA Stats Library.
I just think it's my favorite stat thing.
Like I've now done.
You've pretty much every one of them, and I just always come back to it.
This is such a thing is a comment that's going to resonate with maybe one person on three flats.
That one's for somebody's feeling incredibly.
Yeah, they're like, yeah, totally agree.
Yeah, that was way could I couldn't get down to myself.
I felt that I had to let that one out go en bas stats.
If you're ever interested in stats, it's readily available to the public.
It's really good.
Um, don't ever feel like you have to pay for, um, you know, a stats resource because you can absolutely get by with what The NBA provides.
Five assists, the stream brought to you.
All right, I can do this.
How do you find this? I don't know.
Maybe I can't find it.
I want what I'm looking up this to see which they say they give you how much distance each player covered, like how much players are and hovering created distance, like to the highest desert.
Correlation, at least between players that travel large distances.
And that's what I'm looking for.
Like I'm looking to see if they're like, how many players down to it to go to get like a big man.
All right, what's to distance by my feet? Miles doesn't really matter.
I mean, like, points by quarter were like that.
So I think I'm just going to total distance.
Is that what you're asking like to see.
I'm just looking for any.
Like we would need to.
This would have to be a meta ****ysis mold. Multi.
I need a multi district.
Need a knowledge of excel to figure this one out.
I don't even know if that would work.
Uh, I'm not smart enough to do that.
I can tell you a needle.
Aga n b A data ****ysis on Fiverr.
Just like 35 bucks to give me this answer.
Wow, that'd be so clutch.
That would be still clutch.
If you get getting MBA stats, you should should open up that service.
Here's Westbrook to the front court.
Lakers really rolled over like dogs here.
Yeah, that was This is tough.
Uh, first center.
The first center in the top 20 is the mantra.
Sabonis in terms of distance covered and then 21 is, uh really Go bear.
I wouldn't have expected that.
Really? Go bear good for him.
Calling his giant seven foot to ass around for two and 2.
7 miles per game.
Well, while we ponder all that deeply, that's the end of the game.
We have our baseball card thing, but I fear that probably to elaborate.
Gonna cut us out of the discord.
Say that, right? One extreme.
Okay, we'll do that.
Those guys who hung out to the very end.
So appreciate you guys.
You're number one in our hearts.
Don't tell the rest of the guys.
Look, it's skinny having more of call. Last night's game.
Dude, I was actually thinking about that.
Anyone catch him calling guys the wrong name? Numerous times. Yes, absolutely. 100%.
He, like, totally didn't has nothing Watching any Nets basketball.
Coverage days are long gone.
Yeah, well, he didn't.
Did he call him in New Jersey at all? Um, no, not that I noticed, but yeah, that seems Charles Barkley to this state doesn't unflinchingly calls the New Jersey like every chance against.
Yeah, but that's Hey, guys, Thanks for hanging out.
It's much to follow if you haven't, um, follow us on Twitter at Matt Brooks N b A.
We'll be streaming a lot more as the season gets back in going after this holster.
Quick shadow Shut out to I don't sat outside Brody.
It's courts his agent for throwing the boy, like on the new article.
Got your guy? Yeah.
Add add to stream our guest.
