Cough, sore throat a little bit, but for the most part, I'm doing great.
And, uh, my partner in crime, Nathan, it's enjoying years who also happens to have, um So I give it to him? Maybe. Maybe not.
Ah, lot of people have died in Madison, though.
It's a college town.
Um, there's a lot of bar sending Miljan.
It was about last week.
Who's, um, area Hang in there.
Man on the road to recovery as it was just telling him he works Krone virus incident.
But, you know, we're gonna be all right.
Thank God for a ridge.
Um, so before the other and ready go Paris, we might have over the leg bone out here.
Yeah, I know. We're fine.
As I was saying, 10 year anniversary of the decision 10 years ago, I was on a pontoon boat.
I got my notification, um, on my thing was an isil in listening like an iPhone saw really old iPhone and I was dropped in the leg.
You remember where you were when we brought? Announced he was taking his talents to South Beach? Yeah, I actually remember.
So I was at a basketball sleepaway camp, and, you know, we're young enough that none of us had cell phone or most of us don't have cell phones in the first place.
But either way, they weren't a lot of the camp.
So everybody was kind of shooting around and knew when the decision was is wrapped around dinner times.
The after we finished dinner.
We're all, like, shooting around at some baskets, said, um overlooked the loudspeaker in the gym.
They said LeBron James have decided to sign with Miami Heat and everybody went crazy.
And, um, you know, certainly for me.
I was still a bit of a LeBron fan at that time.
And, uh, just to hear that he was leaving Cleveland was, you know, super upsetting and me, like a lot of the people in the world, we're just really upset with LeBron, especially that season after that.
But now, looking back, it's pretty funny when you think about kind of the player empowerment movement that he started.
I was gonna bring up your at least one step behind me here, but, um, at the time, it didn't seem, you know all that significant to the player Army movement.
But in many ways, he initiated, um, player mobility in free agency, especially star mobility in free agency.
And, you know, since done received almost every big name starting a league and LeBron idea.
You know, college, George, blast, Brooke, um, Harden move teams and free agency.
So he just the impact of that move had still men's and cannot be overstated.
Um, and, you know, in terms of player empowerment, we've had some recent news today with Patty Mills and Dwight Howard, who said they will be donating their I believe their entire the rest of their this is contracts to on the black ice.
I don't know specifically what charitable organizations there don't any do? Did you give me what I'm that I know? For Dwight Howard, it was something along the lines of, like the I can pretty foundation or something like that.
But, you know, really focusing in on the deal.
I've movement and, uh, just more specifically, just kind of like some report that and then I forgot about Patty Mills.
But I think something pretty similar along the lines and, uh, you know, as Dwight Howard, a za Laker fans Dwight Howard had set for a little bit that he was considering not playing.
You know, he's a very critical part of the rotation, so it certainly made us nervous.
But, um, you know, no.
Kyrie talks about Harry.
You wasn't gonna be playing either way.
Talks about the about the idea of, like, everybody not playing.
So, um, you know, besieged White, who was kind of on the forefront of this movement toe.
At least consider not playing.
I thought that this was a really respectful way to kind of make both just send a message, but, you know, still play at the same time support his team as well as use this platform to make a really big statement.
And I know we didn't talk about this the last time, but recently the NB announced that they're gonna have black, like some sort of black lives matter message painted of the court.
And I think last night he talks about, um, the potential light jersey names.
I'll have, like, be able to write a sister message of it.
I've seen already dozen fires of confirmed that there were in various messages.
It looks like the MBA have been pre approved messages that, um, like, I think, really go.
Baird shows equality along with Chris Middleton E.
I don't know how much, um, personalization that they're gonna have just because the manufacturing the truisms is gonna have to take place ahead of time, obviously.
But I'm sure if LeBron wants a constant, my cities get one.
I think be honest, wants we'll get one.
Like, I think the stars, they're definitely gonna have some or personalization, but they could do on the back of the jerseys.
But in terms that Dwight use, that's that's gotta be relief for the Lakers fan of the group.
Started using Avery Bradley.
Um, I'm hopeful for you guys.
Honestly, I don't a za Bucks fan.
I don't wanna play less than 100%.
The Lakers team and you have already lost Avery Bradley.
So you know you can't you can't afford It's not like the Lakers have this bountiful harvest of role players that already, So you could.
I mean, you know, I haven't It would have been difficult, perhaps played travails 2025 minutes a game lab.
So it's for his really For that.
White is playing and that he's telling for during the standard commitments.
Yeah, and I think, like, you know, we've seen in the last week or so you know, the bucks closed in practice of Sylvia's.
Someone on the team tested positive Corona virus as the Clippers.
And, you know, I think that was kind of expected at this point before entering the bubble, but teams the teams would potentially have people test positive, and I was always in the plan.
But, you know, it kind of makes you think that just not having a key rotation guy like Avery Bradley or, uh, you know, it's why he was not playing.
That could be potentially really harmful if you just have, like, even one of your key rotation guys missing.
So, you know, fortunate for a little blocks 4% for the Clipper, because it seems like everybody other team will be there, you know, that was served us well for their deep run in the playoffs.
Absolutely So in regards to the bubble, we got a first look inside of the bubble I get on social media the last couple of days.
Yesterday, um, Troy Daniels was posting pictures of hiss food spread and assess.
You can see with the headline here It was a little bit of Elizabeth Fire Festival issue in terms of packaging and didn't look all I mean, you know, it's it's still, you know, better food than I'm sure I don't daily basis, especially number under quarantine.
But as faras n b A.
Players goes with my team.
Personal chefs, um, you know, it's not ideal situation for them.
At least I read the 1st 36 hours there served these kind of meals, and then from there they can get personalized meals.
Do you? Do you have any insight on that? Yeah, So I I know I was, um, listening to kind of update that a reporter had kind of talking about their experience and quarantine, and I think right now similar to the players.
But one thing they noted is that, you know, there's I think, at least they were given the exam Well, for, you know, that breakfast meal they had, like, five different options, including, you know, compete option, a vegetarian option.
You know, all the all different types of stuff.
But rather than have all them you know, ask the person which offered they want, like, do you want the vegetarian one? Do you want the chicken, the pork group option or whatever? They just gave him all the like, every single option so that, you know, uh, the it staff wouldn't have toe, like, touch their food, it all in there.
Just be less contamination.
So I thought that was interesting.
It's probably the most sanitary way, but also kind of wasteful.
And, you know, as as you saw with, uh, you know, the pictures are going online.
It doesn't seem like it's the highest Call all the food right now, so that would kind of be interesting to see, But like you said, I think as the bubble kind of closes it, everybody begins to quarantine.
Member of essential Teoh, you know, make better deals, I'm sure for you know, stars like Dionysus, LeBron James who? You probably have their own personal chefs or something like that.
Even if they're not gonna bring them along, they're gonna make sure that you know, they're gonna feel properly for gay just cause I know how serious players like that treat their dads.
I am Absolutely.
You know kneeling, I guess.
Question I have in terms of footings, actual distribution of food inside the bubble.
Like, where were these personal trips going? Is there gonna be, like, a fully stocked grocery store? Like, I feel like we don't have that much inside yet.
And to how large this facility actually is.
At least I don't have a feel for, like, the total square footage.
And what this all in? There's a grocery store. You know it.
Um, so I'm sure we're gonna get more answers down the line here.
Um, in terms of what's actually happening inside the bubble in the in the coming weeks.
Here you have a set of scrimmages that kicks off July 22nd.
No news on whether those will be televised, or yet.
I'm sure there might be some kind of footage for lead pass members, but it's yet to be announced.
You got a commentary on the, um, yeah.
I mean, I'm really glad that they're doing it.
It seems like most him they're playing every other day.
And as faras I, uh, you know, as I heard, it seems like a lot of these matchups are supposed to match ups that, You know, teams won't likely play each other, so I know, like, for example, Lakers airplane, Orlando Magic and the, uh the Orlando Magic and the Washington Mr To, you know, there most certainly not going to see, since they don't face them in their regular eight game schedule on So although these gates are probably gonna be too competitive, I think it is good.
That kind of happy's teams ramp up and be able to, um, you know, get their guys in the plane shape.
I mean this along its A lot of these guys have gone without running five in, you know, probably close to, like 15 if not 20 years. I mean, some of these Venice.
I've been playing basketball every single day of their entire life.
And, you know, even even if they're playing, you know, in their ba*****ts are at their practice facility they haven't actually gotten trance is a lot of these guys to 15 yet.
And so, you know the practices leading up to the scripting just indiscriminate themselves at the first competitive basketball, they're gonna play for over 100 8 which is insane to think, uh, this is what they're doing for an occupation, and they haven't done it for that.
It is almost unfathomable that meat.
I mean, I've gone out and I've gotten to play basketball every week here from a far from a professional athlete.
So you gotta mad in that Some of these guys in the rust in team chemistry is gonna priority times, Especially in the images.
Yeah, I think it also could be an interesting time, you know, especially, I think, in the fourth quarter.
But you know, when the starters kind of get their love, their minutesto have coaches.
People try kind of wacky lineups.
Um, you know, first, teams not have new signings to be able to kind of play their new players and see how they might fit the rotation.
So I think that if they decide, televise it, which we haven't gotten any confirmation of, that could be something interesting for, you know, certain fans of teams toe, you know, see their new players and see what might be in store.
Um, with these new lineups.
Um, other news for Orlando.
The nets are missing.
Basically, everyone other than caress liver now blended Joe Harris their starting lineup.
Full list of nuts that will not be playing.
Um, Spencer Dinwiddie, DeAndre Jordan, Taurean Prince, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Nick Claxton and Wilson Chandler will all be sitting for the Nets.
Um, they're starting Christiane Oda.
Sounds like a Polish sausage at point guard backed up by newly signing tyrant Constant.
Um, they're starting care celebrity shooting guard who I would expect to take the lead role on offense.
He's had some outstanding stretches over the last two years when he's not injured.
4 2019 3 point champ wrote.
I don't I still know how to pronounce this correctly.
And, you know, I should be ashamed as an MBA fanatics, I am.
But is it road diets? Guerrouj, I believe.
Did you know, uh, I'm not.
I'm pretty sure you're saying his last name.
Right, But I can't speak to the first name.
Well, nonetheless, um, he's, you know, a mediocre row player.
A bus at this point, his career.
Um, I think you got a lot via some maybe Eastern, north, north east European country.
Um, simply against the bucks.
A few times I have anonymously watched the nuts enough this year to get a grasp on how good he is.
Other than you know, I still get some kind of a couple of the rebounds, but he still looks.
Getting bones to me gets pushed it on a lot.
There's there's Nets fan viewing your please let me know.
I'm sure I'm being anger.
And right now I just haven't want your team enough this year to take engage on him and then Jared Allen at center who I love.
I'm really glad that Alan is gonna be the woman Onley center for the nuts there.
There's a ****pit.
The earlier this year joining who, um was assuming starting center position, clear of a few games after the firing of I consent.
And I think that, you know, Jared is far and away the best center of tedium.
And now leveraging is approved with the idea Jordan and the Claxton s.
So I would expect him to play the vast majority of all games in Orlando.
Uh, what your thoughts are, including that put them before who's out? Anything? Yes.
So I mean, I think one interesting thing look at is, you know, as you mentioned of the fire of County Atkinson, that was, you know, around the trade deadline.
So there wasn't too much time that in term Coach Jock Bond had Teoh, um, toe like, kind of play around with the roster and for, you know, the next front office Evaluate if you'd be a full time fit.
And so I think this will be an interesting time, you know, unfortunate for him.
He's not gonna have most of the players that he regularly was gonna have in the rotation.
So I'm sure the front office will take that the greater salt.
But if he were to perform well, that could be a huge plus.
And, you know, if they brought him back, you have a really great rosters around with with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant coming back.
But I'm a little disappointed with the news of Spencer.
Didn't idiot deciding not to play, obviously understand that you tested positive.
So maybe a little bit different cir***stance, but with dignity.
And Taurean Prince, I think, to light very significant role players.
It's unfortunate that they're not playing because, you know, there are rumors that mets Ah, no.
Kyrie Irving said that they need to kind of trade for third Star such as, you know, like a Bradley deal or something like that.
So I think it would have been in and that's interest of players, like didn't Woody and Taurean Prince came back employed and had a solid performance because that would give that, you know, that make them greater assets so that they could people that kind of trade for a flavored outline, whereas right now they only have carousel virtues playing.
And, you know, Jared Allen could be a big piece, too.
But I think I believe Joe Harris is a unrestricted for aging anyway, So he'll be gone as well, Unlike burn thons, you know, if he, uh, you know, he actually decided if he actually ends up playing really well, this could be an opportunity for to come and get paid more.
Whereas opportunities decided that he hadn't conceived, it was gonna sit it out so that he could make a bigger payday in for agency.
And speaking of batons and the Wizards, the Wizards are, you know, not looking much better.
In fact, I'm looking worse on paper for this bubble there.
Three best players and Bradley Beal, batons and on wall are all out while you know hasn't played since, Uh, you guys in places LeBron was wearing a Cavs uniform.
If I'm being honest, I don't see yeah, John Wall.
It's been on the court since 2018.
I don't think, um, that rather be was having a fantastic year as Wasbir Todd's probably having be about shooting season in the week across the league this year.
So the Wizards are thrown out.
They're with me.
Should Basnet here at point Troy Burger one at shooting guard Jerome Robinson, newly acquired from the Clipper.
That small board.
Roy Hodgson Maria, who is having honestly, in my opinion, underrated PC's an expression of funds, But that was and Thomas Brian's the Indiana product.
It's not a good roster.
It's really never gonna warn playoff recognition or any kind of postseason praise.
But, you know, there's some opportunity for some guys.
Are you? Are you looking out for anyone in particular? Um, I think very much murder stands on its kind of the player, and I think that's the most promised of their young guys and then move.
Wagner had a pretty solid season to him in tact.
Thomas Bryant were both, and I think, long overall.
So, you know, it's kind of it was nice to see them have a couple nice games that sees it.
But of Rahm's, uh, you know, it's a little disappointing with this.
Probably build news.
I know I believe was a shoulder injury, so there was ability to it.
But, um, you know, with so many of the Brooklyn Nets players dropping out, they were six games behind them.
But you know what? The playoff format, if they were to be a cataract to give that they be four games within the Nets and then they'd be able to kind of play for that a spot if they beat them twice.
So, um, you know, I think it be pretty clear wrapping.
It was out there in the matchup against the Nazi be but clear best player on the court.
So it's pretty disappointing about the, you know, Wizards who did get invite to Orlando aren't gonna be able to take advantage of the opportunity to clap nets and, uh and yeah, it's certainly disappointing.
And You know, um, as the box fan of the group, I don't want to stay is just a shell of a roster in the first round of the playoffs, and it's overwhelmingly we given where the nuts that the stands right now that they're gonna ever But that eight seed a must.
You know, Carousel Burgess goes on an absolute terror.
But the Orlando Magic or close to fully healthy, you got to think, I think there's what, 1/2 game or a game separating the get that the magic gonna end up in that seven Cedric being, um then barring catastrophe the boxer probably gonna face it.
Just just not a good nexus line up in the first round.
And, you know, we faced the Pistons in the first round, which was, you know, fun but boring Siris, for the most part.
And I don't think having such such a poor opponent for the first round of playoffs Syria's it's conducive to, um, Ole run, um, success in the playoffs trips because you want to get wrapped up, um, against some kind of a respectful opponent.
I just don't think the Nets are that especially considering how good the bucks are this year.
Yeah, and I mean, I think last year you kind of saw the difference with the Raptors were very intense.
Seven game series against the Philadelphia 76 years.
And I think from that, you know, very tough.
Siri's Quinn kind of wrote in with some momentum in some swagger.
So when they were, you know, down to Oh, and Overtime in Game three, they really responded, whereas, you know, the box, obviously, you know, for the better.
Probably, you know, really took care of business when we've lost one game.
The to Siri's, you know, won four straight against the Celtics in the second round, but, uh, I mean, I don't know if I'd call it rust, but it didn't really face any.
They were has ramped up as the Raptors when it came time to their Siri's get serious to always.
And I didn't think, you know, competition matter at that point.
And then the Raptors went on the win four in a row there.
Um, I don't know if you know, a lack of more difficult opponent was really played a factor it could have.
Honestly, I just think the raptors of the better team.
They had better defensive matched against those and Nick nurses outcoached holes in that Siri's, uh and you know, quiet played some of the most fantastic class last well we've ever seen.
I mean, basically all of last year's playoffs.
Uh, but again, it is worrisome that we could be facing a Julie Nuts team in the first round and that having playing like the Celtics or the Heat, or just a very formidable strong, you know, well coached team in the in in the second round trample the Lakers are regardless of opponent in the first round.
Gonna be gay have been a hell of a ah rookie to deal with between John Maranz and Zion Williams said, Um, have you have you changed modern all you offer? You think the Lakers were gonna end up playing first round? Um, yeah.
I mean, so right now as it stands like the Memphis Grizzlies of the 3.
5 game lead against the Trail Blazers and the pelicans between the pelicans and the Blazers.
I mean, I'm just increasingly just thinking like, you know, with such a you know, with eight games and you know, a somewhat small sample size, it really might make a difference.
You know, it definitely does make a difference.
You You know, when one of these games and the drop between the pelicans on the Trail Blazers l could just have such a easier schedule compared to everyone, that is their schedule.
So, uh, I'd expect some pelicans to finish knife, and then probably within the within striking distance turns off the Grizzlies where they'll be able Teoh kind of play in twice.
And, you know, I just didn't the way that it's trying.
I could definitely see the pockets when a find.
Overall, I think I'd still rather face the Grizzlies.
I just, you know, playing Zion in the first round.
It's kind of dangerous.
And, um, you know, I think that that would be more entertaining.
And I'm sure that Deep wants toe Republicans to play.
I would much rather play kind of grisly.
Steve, Uh, you know what? Thieves, You know, not too too competitive and get us formed up.
But we wouldn't have to think too much before.
Uh, when we're winning that serious? Yeah.
I've heard rumors about signers pictures, you know, cir***vent via twitter of him losing another £10 of fat, replacing it with just muscleman acid.
You know, humility isn't like a minutes.
He would actually, it's just incredibly strong.
And, you know, if he's in better condition, that waas to start.
I guess when he started in January, he was noticeably large.
Everyone was freaking out about it, but he was incredible.
Um and you know, if if he's sustained that level, we will simultaneously being given quicker and better respiratory shape and just jumping higher.
And, um, you know, I think we could be dealing with a very, very scary player.
And Fitz, Yeah, yeah, And I think, you know, we were complicity at the beginning This season, a lot of players kind of come out, you know, a lot of times like missing shots.
It's not the most, uh, you know, it's a little bit stopping basketball sometimes, and I think in that particular situation you would favour a player like Cyangugu.
Um, you know, just always gets the free throw line, and it was just gets very high percentage shots inside the pain.
I think it would be easier for him to kind of pick up and start going to a player like job.
Baran, who, you know as a guard can also be, you know, sloshing everywhere.
You know, he doesn't necessarily get He drives to the basket, but doesn't necessarily get so Lina's bunch of science.
So you might not be finishing as well as you know, like someone like Sybil would.
I think I'm top about just as a Laker fan.
You know, you think about who you Thrones eye on it, you know, there's not necessarily one really good answer.
He thought like a g on him.
Like, yeah, you have a lot of size on him, but so I was really gonna kind of bruise him up, and it's just gonna be a lot to deal with.
I imagine when you closing gave a lot of times, you might want to put the brawn on him that you're just, you know, once again, injured a lot and unnecessarily energy and power.
Usually your best player, Teoh guards I on and then get, like, Koosman and Markieff Morris.
But, um yeah, just would rather avoid the situation overall possible.
Then you made a fantastic point about players with interior rooted offense.
Just X selling right from the jump.
I know you honest in the last two seasons.
Notably is an outstanding starts, the season when everyone else is still getting their minds underneath.
Um, there shot might not be, um, falling.
But Johannes, just, you know, slash going to the hoop and shack, I think, was the same way.
We just always starting this season really strong.
Just do it that you don't need that any beauty, Duncan, the same you do.
Which shot is this less? There's last psychological.
There's just a psychological element to interior up upends too.
Um, so I'm Yeah, I think I think for long, like a player like that, you know, where is, like, a shock.
You could make the argument.
They need a couple, you know, they need, like, 20 games or so to be able to work themselves with shapes and little like how, like Yokich works, works himself into shape every year at the, um, you know, with all this time off, but the players, you know, supposedly still training, we could see some legs I on, you know, be able to come in and he'll have those fresh legs like you said, but I won't have to kind of burn off that fat.
And, you know, also like you mentioned, it seems like even put on muscle, so it could be very seriously with that products like, Yeah, I think, um, I think we must cease, um, and some greatly, um, like or some great variations in body composition. I saw hard.
Maybe some pictures of hardened looking, leaner looking stronger, you know, from time to time has taken heat for having just over your overall physique.
I don't necessarily think he's biting in.
Pretty certainly is carrying some way, which definitely helps them, especially on the defensive, that he's one of the best interior defenders at the governor position.
And you know, it's gonna be interesting to see how Yokich we talked about this extensively.
Ah, a few shows ago.
Plays with no shutting.
I think it's close to £20.
It looks dramatic.
I mean, you okay? You looks like a new kind. Entirely.
Yeah, well, they see some pretty, pretty vast changes in body count.
And that that might change offensive strategy and just playing John.
Well, um, it's gonna be a just Yeah, really.
I mean, it's crazy.
We've been talking about it for so long, but the season starts about, like, three weeks.
And, you know, as we mentioned, Ah, scrimmage games.
I think the 1st 1 is the 22nd.
So that's two weeks from now.
It's pretty crazy that all this is coming out that the steam pictures of players in the in the Orlando Bubbles.
It's pretty amazing to see.
I know it's all about a hurry.
It felt like if the admiral even this close little two weeks ago is this really gonna happen? Yeah. Yeah.
And now it's just like we're still closed.
Just let's not let anyone **** it up like fleas.
Were that were your masks? Um, you know, I said I have Kobe right now.
Um, it was kind of kind of city for a few days, I think these players and go ahead with fine.
But for the sake of the league, in the state of the sake of, you know, just the public out people, General, just do your best to, uh, you know, in sure and sure would help.
I don't have anything else.
You have something to add? No, I'm Just like what? More time.
I think, uh, you know, way started the show by talking about the decision.
But, uh, I just have a question for you.
I'm wondering if you think winning two out of four years and their time is a big three.
It was That was that of disappointment.
It was not a success.
What do you think? Um, so the obvious letdown was the map.
Creeks 2000 2011.
You know, this happened which LeBron had, you know, his only true, you know, poor playoff series that I think we've seen out of him.
And I don't think it's overreaction.
I mean, if he did not play well, he did not shoot.
Well, it often time to use look generally disinterested.
And he was still relatively young at a time doing with all the backlash.
I think psychologically he wasn't ready.
Uh, but winning two out of four for us.
Hard as it is toe put to put when just one, um n b a championship.
I think you know, I don't think that's underachieving.
What was that? Miami arguably like one of the best teams in M v a history.
It would have been fun to see that play out.
You know, even if you years more, Yes, but at the end of the day, I I cannot complain about 22 championships.
I mean, if, as a box fan, if we can get to championships out of your honest, I'd be so extremely happy with that.
So, yeah, that's my two cents on the matter.
I mean, I think I I definitely I wouldn't call it you just appointment by any being, Certainly with just a potential of how, like all those three player is, you would hope that, you know, they stretched for more than just, you know, four years of playing together.
But, you know, I think one thing that we've really learned from the heat and, uh, you know, the kind of warriors recent dynasties is that it's really hard key.
Three little of four star players all paid, you know, the way Kevin Durant was able signed with the warriors, like, kind of a fluke situation.
So, um, you know, credits of Pat Riley and the way they, uh, you never be loaded their TVs.
Eventually, I think the first year.
You know, they're starting with super old might biddy and you know, eventually they will be able to reload to get that is like Mike Miller.
Ray Allen got good time for part of Chalmers stuff like a good time from Rashard Lewis.
So, um, you know, really Credito Pat Riley.
And it's really been interesting to kind of hear all the stories about, um, you know, but the way they're leading, I think a lot of reports kind of showed that, you know, the at least two out of the three, they were closer than people realized.
Teoh all signing with bulls, which, you know, kind of makes you think about a really interesting hypothetical scenario in which you have, you know, d Rose? Uh, yeah.
Jokey Know who's becoming starting become a defensive star.
And then, if you're able throwing, you know, even Pasha, Wade or Bosh LeBron And just think about how scary that dynasty would have been.
Uh, it's pretty.
It's pretty crazy.
And it's one of those monumental things that kind of has somebody domino effects there.
Uh, you know, Mandy a landscape and, you know, throughout the years and determining to, uh, you know who won every single year, the futures of different franchises that Yeah, just interesting.
Look back. It's crazy.
It's been 10 years.
Yeah, you can almost drive yourself crazy if you think about all the hypothetical and fallouts from all these various decisions.
Theater, when it comes to mind, is, you know, stuff.
Curry injuring his ankle back and I believe was 2011 which into the Warriors offering in my four year, $40 million contract of legal WAAS and that older that allow them to do have the cap space to give Durant a deal.
And Craig, you know, arguably Steven of a history.
So you know all of these, you know, seemingly small things.
Getting a big, you know, momentous in a long term and and a lot of winning a championship is honestly, look, um, 10.
Getting along, getting three cars or even two stars on the same team requires some serious salary cap manipulation from the front office, as well as maybe some injury lock, maybe a young player turning out ahead of his expected timeline, like a c aacm or you know what? Bam it.
If I was doing a Tatum and these guys turning out, you know, two or three years before when they're expected to be all stars is really big in terms of building a super or a dynasty.
And you see, you see just how it just gets so unpredictable.
Like which draft picks actually pan out.
Lakers have three straight number do picks.
You know, they have DeAngelo Russell been a growing lonzo ball.
You could argue like 23 turned out, but not even on their time. The Lakers.
And then, you know, you see other teams, uh, just have, like, one pick hits like, you know, the box, and, uh, it really can take them long places of that.
You know, it's it's always great when you see a championship t that has player like a, uh, you know, Siaca a Ben Fleet.
You know, players that were drafted or undrafted, and then you really developed through their system or player, like, you know, even trans.
Oh, who and they're not being a fantastic ticks in the box.
And it was a very key part of the rotation to be able to have someone on rookie contracts so that you can pack have your other veterans but still get such a impact from this young players.
Just you know what n b a teams should be kind of striving for, especially championship teams to be able to get someone in, uh, later first round to really be able to throw in the organization.
Yeah, And you know, if we're looking candidates who I think have a chance to build something special, um, you know, near to extended future on the two teams.
To come to mind of these for me from a salary cap perspective, are the Grizzlies and the he just because based left room for another super Max and already have great young cores.
So expecially Miami, who has, you know, Jimmy Butler and bam hand room to sign.
You know, they think Johannes, but, uh, you know, there's gonna be stars that at the market, not this upcoming for agency.
But you know, 2021 is going to be a year of reckoning for the heat and the Grizzlies and the Raptors to see if they can add to their already strong cores.
So yeah, yeah, hold my gun.
I hope we hold on the honest man I think about it every night.
I honestly had nightmares.
Uh, but just hoping Orlando happens.
Like I said, everyone stay safe out there.
Um, we're gonna be here on Monday, every Monday.
Um, think we might have a little bit of a rebrand for the show.
So stay with us.
