saturation that's about to come with all these sports coming back and that's that's what's tough for me.
Because again, the finals won't start until October.
I mean, that's that is wild for me because I'm so conditioned for the World Series football, all these other sports that are going on and yet there's little basketball were normally they haven't even done anything in September and only parts of October, where they're trying to put their biggest product on there on stage in front of everybody where all these other things are happening.
So what do you guys think of that? Cause that's just kind of how I'm coming at it and how I feel.
Uh, well, I I guess you can t o go for it.
So, I mean, I guess I'm a little bit different because I really don't follow the other sports as much as I used to.
But also, I don't even remember what date is most the time we don't leave the house.
Right, s so to me, it doesn't really matter.
I sometimes only remember in June, so, um, but if I'm sure that there's a reason why and I don't think they're just arbitrarily picking July 31st cause if you remember about a month ago, whenever they first boarding this they shot, it would be the fifth.
So I'm assuming that there has to be something in line with protocols and the different quarantines they have to do getting people back from overseas, getting all the time lined up, getting everything.
Well, Corbyn so thank u S o e.
I rather them get all that in line.
And you're saying that you think football is going to start on time? I don't know that That's necessarily the case to the view, your some people saying that many gifts is supposed to start like next week or things like that.
And they're not starting next week. True.
And there's a chance that everything does get pushed back a little bit and they start overlapping as much as you think.
Um, I was I look, yes, when I rather it be here the fifth or whatever, Absolutely.
But I'd also the biggest thing to me is them being safe. If they're gonna be.
If it if the safest thing and the way I'd rather get it, like rather than anybody gets sick while down there and have to re interrupt things, whether it be certain players go out of the line ups or anything.
More than that, they can take their time and I'll just wait until it comes back and watch it.
Then also, like my take on that is like we're gonna be at the beginning of the NFL season and leave somebody.
I love football and I love basketball on Probably mark every sports.
Um, I watched a playoff baseball, but Johnson anyway, um, not so I was like So you're especially with the N B A.
Like starting because they're not starting from scratch, not start from the beginning.
There are right a lot of like there's a lot of stuff already going on.
A lot of story lines, a lot of stuff.
So there's already gonna be hype about that, regardless of the fact that they haven't even played anything and then you throw in the NFL, they're like other sports family.
Yo, I got I can see Jimmy Garoppolo on Sundays, and I'm gonna watch my Steph Curry.
But I could go watch a possible play, a pretty much playoff basketball every day or whenever, like this cable.
What I'm schedule is.
So I think Sports fan like and as the only thing I could think about that would maybe be a problem would just be between the leagues in terms of like TV stuff.
That's the one, right? Right, like the like.
I, like we've had, like, basketball get like Sunday night for Sunday Night Football.
There's like is basketball season that's that will relaxing like October or November like it's been done? So it's kind of the opposite.
Where is like October? November football is picking up, so you're gonna send more people tuned in the June, sending a football been like the primetime basketball game.
But I'm sure, like I was a fan, at least, like I wouldn't see why anybody would be like this.
Too much sports, you know, that's after having no sports for like the last three months, where it's been like it's been an interesting time.
If you came out and said that you could, I watch football and basketball and the same like same week, I'd be, like, sign me up like now it's true.
Um, yeah, Corbyn, how the island it's going to be here, man.
My attack was playing all kinds of games on me.
Me and technology have Ah, I want to feel the pain relation ways, having audio issues.
I might still be Korean.
Seven issues he finally got on.
So it's a process.
We're making it work.
So we kind of did it the beginning.
The top was to kind of introduce ourselves.
And since your new one, introduce yourself.
Uh, so for I mean, uh, my name's Corbyn love basketball all about that, um, live in Arizona.
But I'm from New York and I'm Lakers fans.
They'll take all that different information since I stopped like me.
That being said, I write about the sun's.
So that's interesting.
And Hackett's world man, it's crazy.
All but, um, just a major hoops had happened.
Be talking with Colin.
Just like I'm excited for actual basketball.
Coming up. Exactly.
So many old games.
I don't hate my love, right? Yeah, exactly.
I don't know what happened. Exactly.
You know, it's okay.
You know, see how many times I wanna see the same player? I've seen the spurs and I think explains the next make out of a three game six too many times.
I know Tim Duncan's gonna block the shot right here.
Steven Jackson gonna hit the King three right here.
Yeah, Yeah, I got you after, like, the first games.
Legend like the seven game, like seem really good.
Like that's what you're taking too much, you know? Yeah.
It's been wanting the funny thing.
I'm satellites right here.
Just another basically two months away, right? At least way.
Actually found we actually found Corbyn through Hooper's lob.
No, actually, I remember the guy who go snapping the hop happen everywhere.
In closes, the all American guy.
I'm with this guy. I'm gonna stay.
You work in a couple for, but yeah, he's dying.
Just hopped around a lot.
Like the way you write sees the nuggets right now.
So I'm happy for meat.
We actually reconnected on a case of the podcast with them for a couple of years.
He got that. So he's he's cool, But you're right.
He scored the teams he loves.
I mean, I have to at least share my core teams, no matter what I like.
I like for you, I'll say listed.
I don't care basket basketball, but, like at the end of the day, yeah, yes, all day.
So I'm getting What's the Westbury fan? I know that.
So there was Oh, that.
Also, like a couple players, That's a totally different thing.
So if it's like if you hate him, chances are probably like like a rose ear Russell West due.
And then ask Michael Beasley, Monta Ellis.
Maybe I see myself in that like, you know what? You're not great, but you great to me exactly.
So definitely different lengths.
But when I just say General MBA fan that usually covered a lot of the house once you dig deeper than it's like, forget it.
Yeah, Lakers Being from your hoping that's why basket.
So nine year old Corbyn like the colors.
That's where I want from a vice spin.
I was, That's part of it.
I I love a good Aziz man.
Purple and gold.
I loved it through.
Yeah, I think I like the worst trust.
It was right after Jack and Kobe had ended like that.
So, like it definitely wasn't because they reformed score, you cite, Score anyone You're like I'm all in.
That's how it went right just before that, but yeah, yeah, yeah.
When they first had the game with the Christmas gim**** in shock and Oh, yeah, lucky.
Oh, didn't know Exact throwback, right? I love that one.
We have a question.
Uh, from at the next he has an off topic question. That's fine.
We'll open to questions.
He said, Do you think the mix will everyone in championship under James Dolan? Hey, you brought your next that I won't send you, but I think I think that's gonna happen.
Um, I think James Brolin has pushed owner and sports from the perspective of is not open his mind to trying to succeed you opens his mind to what is more important to him, which is Madison Square Garden.
Because, honestly, all he's got to do is have Madison Square Garden for a basketball team in it, and he's gonna make money, and that's all he cares about.
So, no, I don't think it's never gonna happen all tonight in your home in under the worst run organization.
I'm sorry, Corbyn.
Ones on the right, you know, trying to get that new arena down there and then the public money, all that stuff.
He's their revolting against him because they're like, Oh, you haven't brought anything to the city.
All you do is missed the playoffs.
And it was like this old lady roasting this guy in public and was hilarious.
I watched it put It was just They have struggled ever since they drafted and Booker than your after they won 48 games and they haven't been close since.
It's like at what point you have Devin Booker, who's the All Star? That is good and you can't find ways and great to generate is on his way.
You have other pieces there, supposedly on their way, but they've been through so many cops on pics of the You're, like, really not far from the Knicks.
I really don't think it's that far.
I don't think people think about that, But I also think being like New York kind of kind of helps that like narrative of the Knicks being so media, especially like preside in the 19.
Like I'm obviously not.
I'm not, but they're obviously really good in the nineties, and then all of a sudden like it's just been mediocrity.
And then some for, like, over two decades.
It's been back because I have maybe a little bit.
They've made the playoffs more recently.
I mean, the thing is, yeah, that was the last good moment to Yeah, um what's funny? That, like New York.
They've been patient.
Now, how are you? Good court question.
Whole lot of better career, Zion.
And John, we can't We can't talk about his earlier career wise, but, um, I think I think I think God is gonna be like, uh, like, multiple time all star like he's gonna be ableto he's gonna He's gonna make a mark in the league, I think, Zion, Like, if he I just feel like he's gonna be getting injured a lot, man like, unless you can figure out a way like run different.
Looks like there's just so much mass on the dude.
And like, he already got hurt and was out for a while.
Like obviously I want to see him succeed like love do.
I think he's a great player, and I think that both they're gonna be great, but I think career wise, I think John John as the not to say the highest higher ceiling, but I think he has a better chance.
They're like, hit it, you know, if you know, I think like Zions Health is the biggest thing.
I didn't read the article on ESPN earlier in the season.
Let's talk about how you know when people see this.
I on the first person.
I think I was Charles Barkley because it just the way that kind of do an explosive athlete, you know, we're not, but like the way the medical field in sports medicine and ****ytical thing have involved since Barkley.
There's not a lot of stuff from then it was tested, and so those I was coming in.
And they're just having to learn as they go essentially with him, both from, ah, health perspective, you know, trying to get below.
But also just, like is his way really a big deal like and his body handles saying that everything and I, you know, coming from here, just know what I know.
I would absolutely say that's a big deal, but they're seeing signs.
It's like it may not be as big of a deal of people think as long as he's moving properly and landing properly and coming properly.
And what help if you could turn down all right, you know, it's almost like, you know, they call LeBron the chosen one, and you know you honest is the Greek freak and I have all these crazy body.
But you know, Yanis is a physical free, his eyes just the next line of that.
But here's what happened to be very different.
I know I know that you will just last thing.
I don't think that Zion is.
I think a lot of his success is gonna be Hui's, like playing with cause.
Flies like seeing him with Alonso and Brandon Ingram.
Like where he's not like the main focus.
Um, he's drive like he's killed it like I would like his rookie year so far.
Um, there's something like job.
I feel like Jaws Kangai, where you can build a team like centered around your franchise point guard, which is where, like the NBA's kind of trended towards.
Yes, okay, some.
So I'm not I'm not saying can't building on Amazon, but I think having people like somebody like Alonso is always looking to throw that love and get that open.
Get that open past him.
Um, like Brandon was followed score and spreads the floor for somebody like John.
Just go Just get it on people, you know? So I feel like a lot of it's gonna be like how the personnel is around, whereas for jod think that the Mankin largest takeover and like be the system, you know? Yeah, I mean a science.
And neither is gravity like the room gravity alone so much before begin with.
Like if you have because you write like Alonso and Brandon Ingram had career I seen from three to see for this year.
But like just off his rules, like you saw some of this may sing, You know, you paint like there's not a lot in just I am doing that all the attention that funnels in and that's what I think is like not a one man Chico, cause obviously need to build more around them if you jump shot.
You know, like I think that's crazy.
But just in general there's a blueprint in place for joy.
You write, you roll amount, you get a good team, you know, he's all he's doing.
All point guard, I think, was on.
If you get spaces around, it's very honest.
Like where it's like the floor is open.
You let him go to work, wreak havoc inside and just go around it.
The injury risk is something I'm concerned about, but honestly sticky along with John too.
Because every time I do lands, man, yeah, yeah E Oh, I'm trying to dunk against the Rockets and he himself against everybody.
I e that Kevin Love poster.
That would be Oh, my God.
I think they should still make a poster out of care e i e Every time I think of a job dunk that missed, I think of that LeBron dunk in the finals that he didn't come down.
But that was Oh, abs and warning.
Yeah, killed e o like, uh, if he would have made that cemented don't.
He might have broken the back when he was coming here is not so hard.
I don't like I like when we were down three when that happened and I was like, the prom is coming and I was like, Dude, if we're probably gonna lose this game and now he's just gonna son dream on after everything, like I'm kind of end on.
But, you know, I missed the freak I'll take.
So I think I think Zion and e think Zion and job.
This is a real good topic because Corbyn what the perfect point that if you if you don't think about it, Zion is like a guy where I feel like we're still trying to find that diamond in in the Rock.
If that makes sense, he still can develop his post game.
He can still develop his jump shot.
He can still develop certain parts of his game in the inner workings of his game, but he already has the the nuance.
Thea the that the it factor in regards to his ability to pass the ball. He has vision.
Ah, he has that ability to kind of work within a system no matter where he is.
And I still freaking can improve defensively in regards to his perimeter ability in regards to shifting on the floor.
Um, obviously he's a freak.
Athletically, we all know that, but in regards to his development as a basketball player, overall, there's going to be a lot of development from him.
But what we've already seen in the very short time that he came back in her and mid January is just intangibles that he already possesses that we can still steam develop on.
I think John Durant is an unbelievable player.
I think John Durant is a guy where if you equate him to Russell Westbrook, he's not rust cause he's not.
I don't know if anybody's ever going to be rest, but in regards to his ability to being like rust with that intensity, but also stepped back when needed, on top of being intelligent at the end of games, in being smarter when needed.
Need be because we all know Russ goes crazy in the last two minutes of a game and you could not trust.
And once a close can, you cannot.
But in regards to but in regards to what jaw is and how he impacts the team and what you said God means about you about the perfect point.
With the way the league is trending, the way the wind is going.
Like you said, you plug job and you need that go to guy.
He's going to get you that and you're going to be successful.
I think what Corbyn brought up, though with Zion, we're still seeing more.
There still could be more with the already it factor.
And then we're stepping away from basketball with smile, the ability to promote him and all these things.
And you know that I call it the last dance quality, where all these little extra things that a sugar, including the top of what makes him even better make some even cool.
That's a job not amazing at ST John's.
Obviously, John can be better.
I'm just saying that if Zion does develop and we keep picking at that rock and that diamond keep showing, I'm telling his eye on might be a top top 15 top 20 player all time and you know, you bring up guys that you compared to you.
Bring Charles Barkley reminds me Zach Randolph.
He reminds me of Draymond Green.
He reminds me of a lot of guys.
You kind of pick and pull and put them together and natural Zion and be.
And if he ultimately becomes that and he develops like a honest, let's be honest, I didn't think you honest would be as good as he is.
What is unbelievable is the best plan, but I know Eric shaking his head like a but But Johannes When he came in, I sat there, said, If this guy develops and 1/2 of what we thought he would be can easily be a top 10 player in the league right now, I mean, we can have the debate between LeBron and has been the best, but I'm not having that debate because so many honest is right now the best player in the league, athletically, defensively, everything.
That's just what he is right now.
But here that kind of honesty is with Zion.
If Zion develops like a Yonas, where he can extrapolated parts of his games intelligently developed, that postgame uses body correctly on top of with the explosiveness from time to time instead of all the time.
That is when you sit there and say, Oh my God, he might be a Kevin Garnett.
You know, the Larry Johnson combination.
Where he comes down, there's nothing you can dio and that's and that's more of what I see the potential, the potential Zion all the way.
But right now and whether was going If Zion doesn't develop when he just stays the way he is, which I doubt.
But if he does, which could happen, John is is better.
But that's that's where we see that the tree stem from a root and we won't know.
So I think it's cool.
It's part of course, far is that both these is there gonna be compared to each other like there as much as like, it's hard to just goes like, you know, the different positions and stuff, but being that one and to pick.
And if I can't, I can't last time like a one and to pick hand out like both of them.
Really, I I might just be blank fill my head, But, um, like some, like, kind of robberies like it would be it would be cool.
See, especially they train young and looking, right? Right.
Oh, wait, my bad.
I should have been talked.
Okay, Maybe that's why that's I'm sorry that I can't just don't want to goto right next.
Marquees Chris marquees craze wasn't the number you only good number four pick, but he's great with words.
Weight on drastic draft them.
Give them three years, and then Watson becomes semi your alarm system.
You know, we just kind of set him out there to Arizona.
Just relax, enjoy the sun, coming, obey and then have a good time.
But we had to work.
Sure, there anything, or I was actually going to say about the kind of things down until about an hour and 1/2.
But never the ones who first test didn't want to make a comment going off what you were saying in the jobs I in comparison and I and I think you know, it's a fair thing to say.
Um, I would say Zion has a lots modeler margin of air in that regard, right? Like I said, God, it being a point guard and being type point guard, he is seeking kind of fill in a different spots.
Where is on and I'm like, he's got about 1000.
He's got to do X y Z just right to become that guy.
And, you know, you talked about not being explosive all the time.
And in that regard, he reminds me of Blake Griffin.
Yeah, you're Blake.
Different plate, 120 miles an hour.
All times never slow down that, and he's aged well, but a lot of it was caused from injury from that, right? And so, you know, I think if he can try to look at somebody like that and say, Well, you know, Blake worked on this handle working his perimeter game.
And while Blake, you know, like he said, he got banged up, so it doesn't have the explosion that you did.
It's early enough.
He could put his are both and, like you said, kindly become a Kevin Garnett type of player.
Not with the hype, but you know, athleticism.
Yeah, yeah, that's a great comparison.
Anything like you, Like a Blake Griffin with LeBron movies like, Is that that that that I on him at a time? But it was like a Blake Griffin.
Yeah, I e believe I do shirt on under my, I think, even back when he was, Do he just mature beyond his years? Yeah, I think he's well equipped to handle that spotlight, and I think like one of said thing is like John Marantz the same way there handle it differently, but yeah, I mean, Josh can handle that as well.
Yes, I think of being like these guys were like like not high school phenoms, but like they're like nowadays.
You see all these high school kids with, like they got followings wherever they go, you know, So, like, it's kind of more from this same I like like it's kind of amazing student.
What? Not great like this is next level, but like you seeing kids like that.
So I feel like the next generation of like like NB stars or just sports, like sports stars in general are going to be way more like well groomed in terms of being about maybe not necessarily handled pressure themselves.
But they will be able to, like, divert the attention somehow some way in like I will, I will stay.
I will say that to cut you off.
But Zions been on the radar since he was 14.
I will just say that I get what you're saying.
I told her get were saying, but we I remember seeing YouTube video of us of a 68 £230 8th grader doing crazy things above the rim, and I was like, Oh my God, if this guy actually develops into a real basketball player, the world gonna explode because this is insane because he was doing things.
Yeah, I like seriously.
And you're like, Wow, he's now in the n B A.
I mean, no one shocked Eddies in the n b A.
But he's still flying at 26 8 with the buns.
Life is I got adverts that we can't even compare to anybody because he's so freaking.
It's stupid by gravity he like.
No, he floats ItT's incredible air ground reached our 32.
Yes, probably no.
Tone it down, close it down, but very successful.
Ever they care for, You know, jumping on here. My idea.
Um, you know, I think this could be something good to come forward so we can figure out the itinerary.
And the more specifics as we go forward now that we know how to connect everyone and connect ability and things and everybody got the technology right? So it's the lead.
There was a lot of times, so yeah, definitely.
Definitely do this more so you also it's all of our viewers that are still here.
