Hello and welcome.
Hello and welcome to my podcast.
Uh, today I will be speaking about the N B A and about the NFL and about the MLS.
So let's begin with the oh, end the M o.
So let's begin with the Super Bowl.
Uh, if the Super Bowl happens, who are you taking and who do you think slash Want to win? In this case, I would like I'm hoping for my favorite team, the Carolina Panthers, to withdrawal.
However, I don't think that's gonna happen.
They do have a great running back in Christian McCaffrey, best in the league, but not worthy.
Not a great quarterback.
So my prediction for the Super Bowl champions is back to back Kansas City Chiefs.
However, I think it will be close.
Ah, I think that in the NFC, you convey very consider the Seattle Seahawks or the or the New Orleans Saints.
I think that the New Orleans Saints will win just because of depth, and a lot of this depends on if Jadeveon Clowney is traded.
So the Seahawks, with Russell Wilson, are obviously a contender.
I don't know of margin Lynch will be playing.
He probably will there contender every year, especially this year, as people are saying.
Wilson is the number two quarterback in the league.
But when you have Drew Brees and Michael Thomas, I think you're kind of unstoppable.
Michael Thomas is the best, arguably the best wide receiver right now other than DeAndre Hopkins.
And so that's why the Saints are considered are very highly considered.
Ah, who else is there, Um, trying to think they have a great backup quarterback.
I know this isn't what most of you would consider important, but when you have an old quarterback like Drew Brees, the back of matters a lot, and after they signed Jamis Winston, that is huge.
He led the league in passing last year, but also in interceptions.
So not sure how that happened.
Ah, but I think it was a great fit for him when Michael Thomas and why you just think about on the KFC now.
So on the FC, I think that the Kansas City Chiefs will make it.
I I It's really tough, though, to see who is contending.
I mean, the Chiefs are up against the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills and the Tennessee Tight Tennessee, Tennessee Titans.
I mean, with the Titans, they can shock anyone.
We saw that last year when they eliminated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
They can do anything.
Derrick Henry is a beast.
He's so big, he could just run right by anyone that you kind of have to think about how great they are.
But I think that it all comes down to the Ravens, Chiefs and Bills.
Meanwhile, the Bills their defense is phenomenal, like talk three defense in the league along with the Chiefs and probably the 40 Niners.
I mean, their quarterback is still very young in Josh Allen.
My guess is that the Bills will win a Super Bowl in the future.
But when you have Josh Allen at quarterback this year, I don't think he can lead them over Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jack's.
However, Josh Allen is a great Russian Q B.
He's gonna work on his passing, and, yeah, and he needs more experience.
After that, it's down to the Chiefs and the Ravens.
Now, this is a really tough battle.
Just because both teams have such great depth.
I want you to think about quarterback position Mahomes and Jackson.
Mahomes is better, but that is very close battle.
Then you got to think about Oh, yeah, By the way, on the Saints, it's Alvin Kamara.
I want you to think about the wide receiver for the Chiefs, which is Tyree kill.
And I want you to think about the running back for, um, for the for the Ravens.
Sorry, I'm blanking on the name right now.
Um, running back.
You got Mark Ingram Jr.
Their wide receiver, Marqise Brown.
And on defense, you have Earl Thomas.
I mean, Earl Thomas leading the defense and Mark Ingram and marquees Brown leading the offense.
That's very tough to be.
So I see this as a possible threat now why I want to move on to our next topic, which is life in the n b A bubble, as we saw many players on Twitter and on tick talk and on social media posting about what is going on inside Orlando.
So I have seen my wrapped a Raptor player, Serge Ibaka has posted what the ring that they will be wearing to test if it's cove in 19 and honestly, it looks very high tech.
James Harden finally getting a ring.
But in all seriousness, the bubble looks like a lot of fun, and I feel like for us people who are sitting in quarantine, and that is really tough to see but makes sense there.
Wretch, they deserve it.
I don't know if you've heard, but they're living in Disneyland and the rules are very safe just because you if you leave the bubble for even a second, you need the quarantine for eighties.
Ah, we saw this with Rashawn Homes today at around one PM When he went out, he took about a foot out of the bubble to tick to get his delivery food that he ordered in.
And just like that, he is quarantining any will miss practice time.
Russell Westbrook, Kalkhoven, 19.
I'm not sure how, but the question is, has it spread to other players? The answer is no.
Are I think it is? No, because they have to quarantine in the 1st 48 hours.
So to move on in a bubble, they are living in Disney Room.
So there's all these pools and it's just beautiful.
It is a huge resort.
Plus the rides are open to some certain certain rides air open to players, which will be a lot of fun for them and movies.
I mean, I know that while I'm in quarantine, I'm watching several movies on Netflix or I've watched a movie on Disney Plus or Amazon Prime.
Whatever the case.
Watching a lot of movies, however, and none of them are new releases cause movie.
There's aren't open well, the players get full new movies from Disney in the resort, and so they can go to their feeders and just watch it all day long.
I want to talk about how this bubble will affect players, relationships and scouting.
I mean what you're looking at scouting for players.
A lot of big name free agents that come up are Yannis unto the Campo and, uh, Andre Drummond rooting, I think Rudy Gobert.
So there's a lot of them are DeRozan entity Davis etcetera.
But I want to focus on Yonas after the company, the Honest is rumored to be going to the Heat Warriors, Raptors or the box.
Those like the primary teams that are looking at him.
Well, you gotta think about this way.
If the trial Raptors want you honest, they will show off.
And what I mean by this is when both teams are sitting out for dinner inside the bubble hanging out.
The Raptors have phenomenal chemistry and Johannes is gonna notice that and he's gonna be aware.
And Raptors players are gonna tell him.
Hey, honest, we've got great chemistry.
You got to join us or championship contenders come to us now.
The Warriors don't have that Ah advantage because they have such a poor season that they didn't make it.
But the Heat said then So I just the heat.
They have the advantage that it's in Orlando, which is in Florida, and so they can easily get this.
The honest will be like, Oh my God, the weather is so nice here.
And just like that, the heat have gained scouting.
That's what I think is gonna matter a ton.
So to move on to our next topic, I want to talk about the n B A draft which is coming up soon sooner than we thought.
As players such as Lemelle a ball have declared cold Anthony and then the Edwards, I believe, and James Wiesner.
So I want to talk about who is it that teams would like to draft.
Ah, we got to think about which teams have the greatest lottery odds.
And when you look at that, you think Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, Ah, Phoenix Suns are now I land the Hawks, etcetera.
So on the Golden State Warriors, if they get nerve next, it's better.
If the Warriors get the first pick.
Who do they take? If I am the Warriors GM Bob Martyrs, I take James Wiseman just because he is such a great centre Big Ben presence.
They need a center.
German Green is a great power forward, but they need a big man inside.
So James Watson is the perfect fit for the Golden State Warriors.
Now many of you are talking about the mellow ball.
However, I see this draft class as a positional battle, so often like last year.
There are draft costs is where one player or two players stand down.
Last year it was Zion Williamson.
Everyone knew, no matter what position you're seeking, take Zion, and that is why this cooked Jeff classes different.
There are no standout players.
There are few, but not one.
So teams are gonna be looking at what do we need? What position are we missing? Such as? The Atlanta Hawks might not take Lemelle a ball, however, the New York Knicks probably would just because r.
Barrett as a shooting guard.
You gotta take the mellow, but it's really it's really up to them.
My last topic is TFC.
I'm a less in the MLS at the moment.
It is the MLS back tournament, and Nashville S C has opted out due to fear of Cove in 19.
Now, this is a big Newt because you never know what's gonna happen.
And that team could have won it all.
But now they're not a threat.
I see them as a big threat.
However, with Carlos villain offline, I don't know about L A f. C.
They don't have as great a chances.
I thought, Ah, that was my MLS segment.
So thank you for listening.
And yeah, I got to wrap up, but you still see me
