Thank you so much for joining me.
We got a little bit of a panel today.
Bow and Nick, some of our newest members.
I also just added Matt within the last month or two as well, Caleb, within the last few months.
So pretty much the whole new panel for me, I'm ecstatic to be talking to my new family members.
I put a face to the name for myself and for all you guys on the SportsCastr community.
So I'm gonna do my best.
You guys jump in when you feel you got something great to say, but we'll do our best to give each other are turns and go on a little bit of a panel style.
But I do want to kind of kick it off with the N B A bubble, which is gonna be the whole topic for us today.
We're gonna be going on the ins and outs of the basketball return how they're making it happen with off course, the whole pandemic and everything that's happening with 2020 which is obviously insane.
But we're getting sports back at some capacity.
So, yeah, let's get going.
We're going to bubble back.
Obviously a lot of things happening throughout the last week and this week as well because of players testing positive things happening there's a few things will bring up.
But, um, Caleb, I kind of want to hear your opinion so far on how the NBA's implemented some of these rules and kind of your ideology of how this is gonna work.
Man, Uh, I hope it doesn't work with the rules that they have going on right now.
Are thinking can work.
As you can see, we have a lot of snitching going on in the bubble already.
Way got the snitch hotlines, and we do.
You know, I saw the more simple players like kind of doing it to themselves to right.
I think it's the players.
You using it to their advantage.
Loki if they could get LeBron if they catch LeBron snitch and he's out of the bubble.
So I mean, it could be an event.
A person teams out there, especially if you're lower seeded team I would be sent to.
I'm trying to get LeBron a Yeah, here.
They may also try to invite that Instagram model.
Yeah, Instagram bottle put up.
I mean, at the end of the day, like these guys are used to a certain lifestyle, so it's tough to get these guys to really get in this bubble, avoid all of the things they're used to outside of basketball as well as, of course, preparation for the game itself.
So it's just a completely different adjustment for them, of course.
You know, I think so.
For me, Bobo, I want to hear your So I see a lot of people complaining of the accommodations and they're in Disney.
So I kind of want to hear your opinion on what you've seen, I guess via live streams post whatever.
I and just I guess, with knowing Disney as just a adult like, you know what, your what's your opinion? But, well, I before Bo answer, let me say both.
Probably not going to care unless unless Hawaii is not on his best behavior or less, baby, as long as the Clippers they're doing their thing has always gonna worry.
You know, ever since Nixon Oh, yeah, he's trying to get LeBron out early.
But, um, you know, in terms of ah, the rooms and stuff, it kind of shows.
I guess the differences in ah in class because I've been the Disney before my rooms, we're not as nice as theirs.
are Rondo putting up a king sized bed saying, It's like a Motel six.
Yeah, not so much the food on the first couple days, like like a couple of people post.
It's a place that we're looking kind of rough, but I also don't think like the chefs were there yet.
And since then, like people have posted the menus of like like all their room service options and stuff.
It's like steaks and $65 bottles of wine.
And and then that point Hubble.
You have all those options because you have all of these things that are in the bubble with you.
You know you're getting paid to stay in this bubble and provide for these guys.
They can go play golf and they can go fishing politic.
Paul George went fishing with mantra as today, like, Yeah, I'm not feeling too sorry for him.
You saw that another about those DJ.
It's having a deejay events and you start like Dwight Howard was like, I want to get it so up to the event.
Like I could only imagine him kind of like it was a five size off.
You guys seen Jr's live and everything like that, and they had to see Oh, maybe it was like, No, we haven't under that No, Absolutely.
What was that? I said, I think he could have went about it better.
I mean, I understand what he was trying to say in his point, but I totally think he could have done about it better.
I mean, of all people.
That's what I'm saying, All players right now that I think the last memory I have of Jr now, I don't don't say the whole thing.
Think of him running back to half court cause George Hill is the one that blew that game.
So let's stop without whole fake narrative.
Jr had a lot of what I call that later on towards though.
What was that every, Yeah.
I mean, it's probably other five, regardless, didn't win a game in that series, so it's not like that game would have mattered like that Warriors team wasn't losing, but the last thing I remember was him throwing soup.
I think it was like in a coach's face or a member of the media or something, and that was like the last thing that he did and that he's been out of the NBA's doing his thing.
And then he finally gets his chance with the Lakers in the bubble to go make a run.
Everything has been asking for and he's on live, just trash in the league.
It is just like I I think it's funny, our personal standpoint, and I get some of the things he's saying.
But I mean, he should have a short least right now because he should just be blessed to be there playing ball.
You know, we have a way of medical practice.
That's what I'm saying, man.
You know he's got playing today, has even hit the court yet.
I think that's another thing I was thinking is like when they do play basketball again, like you know, they're gonna be in that mindset, it's gonna be a little bit less of like they're in a AU camp with their boys in the dorm, like back to back to the game, back to preparation stuff before we keep going, want to sound it? A couple of people, of course, they came into the stream.
We got school Matt, 28 just drawing in Bailey Taylor.
123 Just that ball in.
So we appreciate their comment.
That's awesome. We appreciate the love.
Yeah, we're doing our best of ball on a budget during 2020 for us so far, but yes.
So I want to hear someone's opinion on who is going to take the cake.
Obviously, I think three of us air in Los Angeles and oboes a Clippers fan out in Georgia.
I figure over Nick, you're over in Florida, right? Yeah.
Not for, um, I'm a Warriors fan.
Has been a terrible year for us, but okay.
I read the year coming back, don't we? Back And we got to get better.
But so I'm curious to see who's gonna take the cake.
I guess we can kind of go go in a circle here.
We'll start with Caleb a t East with my screen.
It kind of goes Caleb, Matt, Nick and bow.
So I just kind of curious to think two years is going to take the cake.
Maybe a sleeper to for you.
I got the Lakers winning it all, man.
I don't see nobody really being them. We have a lot of experience.
I think you know this year a Ah good little break this year through my brakes.
I think we have the advantage of the Lakers and ah, sleeper team for me.
Are the Rockets.
I think the Rockies can win, have less brick rested.
I think they could do something crazy, and I think they could get it out.
The East, I think.
OK, maybe my team on.
That's funny right now, as you say that we have Rocket Blast Joe who just joined our stream at the perfect timing.
So we just made that comment on and we have another one that is joined.
I love the fact that its user name especially for Bo, he's loving that using a footpath them.
That's a great one surprise for discusses. Lana.
That's great Sports guys was the best.
They're just like you. No control them. It's cool.
Great user day. We'll let it look. We'll let happen.
Uh, yeah, Matt, I'm curious.
Who's taking the cake for you? Maybe a sleeper for you.
Well, just think of the king.
For me, it is obviously the Los Angeles Lakers.
Look, they had they had three months arrest.
Even though LeBron he's in year 17 getting that much needed rest is definitely helpful.
Also, him pairing up with every Davis is the best thing that could happen to the L.
Lakers should have happened last year, but the Pelicans were being straight on *****es like Horace, Grant said.
The last dance, they didn't let it happen.
And they were just complete.
You know, the one.
The one player that I'm interested in seeing for the Lakers is Dion waiters.
Do you have waiters? Was a guy who was added before this pandemic shut down.
I think he's gonna make a big impact for the Lakers, especially when Avery Bradley not not being a part of the squad.
It's gonna be interesting to see.
And also what brought this injury, how they're gonna the stuff now a sleeper team.
But I got who could possibly win it all.
I got the Boston Celtics.
I feel like the Boston Celtics.
They maybe a two or three seed, But not a lot of people are giving him a chance.
People are thinking him that it's basically Milwaukee's to lose, but you gotta watch out for Boston.
They got Kemba Walker, who is now a part of a winning team like the Boston Celtics.
And and when Jayson Tatum of Jaylen Brown, they have a good chance to make a run.
And if I were besides Milwaukee to make it out of the East, it would definitely be the Celtics stand.
How cool would it be if we were to get a Lakers Celtics NBA Finals? 10 years of the makings? That would definitely cool. Absolutely.
Nick, I'm curious.
Of course you not in Los Angeles.
I'm curious to hear your thoughts on staying asleep.
Her team For you.
I'm gonna be honest, which I made.
It has been really hard for me to actually choose who can win this year because I felt the MBA.
I like baby has been so wide open for the first time and so many years.
But if I had to initially lean on anyone, I'm glad to go. Oh, my God.
Bowman, I got to go with the clips, okay? Probably obviously.
I mean, LeBron's the best in the world, you know? We know what he a beacon do, but when I look at the Clippers, the Clippers, that got the rating finals.
In Kawai got Paula George, who has something to prove he was.
He hasn't had a great playoff career.
Ah, and then it's also the death of the Clippers.
May you got Lou Williams six Man of the year mantra zero.
Who could possibly be a six man of the year? And on top of that, they saw some key guys and markets Morin's Reggie Jackson.
Um, a few of the guys will then, of course, Pat barely the dog.
So I'm going toward the Clippers and Milwaukee has a good chance.
Course the Lakers do.
And if there's a sleeper I'm gonna agree with now, I must say, possibly Boston, just because, um, of Hala Tatum has emerged as All Star over this past season.
Of course, like he said, Kemba Walker was, it was in a more of a winning culture with Boston, of course, Jalen Brown has also emerged as well.
So Boston may be a sleeper, even though I do say that Milwaukee is gonna come out of the East, but I would say don't see by Boston, either.
I think I think it's gonna be Milwaukee and Boston these couples finals? Yeah, that seems to be a pretty common file.
That's gets kind of where my mind's at two.
Bow before you go.
I see **** Pat Bad.
Put in a comment.
Said Lake Show and four right at Bo.
So he's ah, coming straight at you.
Let's respond to **** pap, ev.
And obviously he's taking the cake for you in a sleeper.
Um, well, uh, I'm definitely gonna say it's the Clippers, and they're gonna beat the Lakers in six.
And, um but, um, you know, it's on Nick hit everything.
He's been listening to me Talk about this for a long time.
Um, that's mention the MBA.
Best ***** in the MBA.
Um, that's playing in the NBA and quiet, Leonard.
Um, Paul George was a top three and BP player last year, and he's never played with somebody of I mean, he played.
He's played with some great players.
Also, Roxburgh is definitely a great player, but he's never played with somebody of quiets caliber.
Um I think he's gonna bring you know, that extra level out of him that, um because you vehicles jubak is a beast in the pain and Montrose hailed backing him up.
Another beast who would win six year flu Williams wasn't above have fallen out.
Um, And then, like Nick said, Marcus Morris was a huge pickup for us.
Reggie Jackson's been fantastic.
She met coming off the bench, snipe, and he's rarely talk about it anymore.
But it didn't go. I didn't know.
I didn't think he traveled.
The whole team's there.
OK, so I ended up going.
They took a team boat and said, We're either going to do This is a team, but we're not gonna do it all, OK, I like that.
I mean, they also bring it out, bring it out.
Joakim Noah is an interesting Yeah, you're signing as well.
So he's gonna I mean, he's just another big body because, I mean, are two centers were basically zoo back and, um, mantra, as so joking just guides us like another defense.
And that's a funny thing.
What that something between.
That's also the thing between the Lakers and the Celtics.
The Lakers have the size.
That's the one thing that they have an advantage over right over the Clippers with Amy evidence.
Um, I mean I mean, so I mean, what the Lakers coming with? Obviously, Dwight, you know javale and a d Having Dwight there makes a big difference.
If the white doesn't go, that really takes away from some of their identity.
Well, when you lose a guy like Rondo who has been hurt for, I feel like the majority of the last few years like he's just constantly hurt.
Yeah, I just I don't know.
When was the last time I remember when Rondo was just super Elfi, but and the reason why I like him on the Lakers as well isn't because of what he does on the court at all.
It's really the veteran presence, the locker room guy.
What he's able to mentor for some of the younger guy.
So, to be honest, losing him what I value most from you know, a nine ****ysts and someone that's a Laker fan myself isn't his game anymore, but just more of like what he brings the locker room with.
That being said, like the point guard issue with the Lakers is definitely something they have to get creative with.
You know, that's why nowadays it's an interesting play of game with every team you have 90.
4 words, and you have all types of different rotations.
So it's just such a different game than it used to be, where it's like, Oh, I got a look at who's on the next on the debt f char.
Um, but you lose a guy like every Bradley, and to me, that is a pretty big impact.
And he's one of the better perimeter defenders in the league.
Ah, guy, that's extremely smart.
When he does play the minutes, you're not gonna play him too much because the minutes he does player.
So you know, so valuable so that losing the Lakers losing Bradley is definitely that hit forum.
Having Dwight come makes keeps him in contention like that, because losing broadly and losing Dwight also and then thinking the Lakers were still the favorite. That's ignorant.
Absolutely not, because you don't you now are losing a lot of pride, and then you add Rondo on something before I continue.
Really want to think Rocket Blast Joe for that tip of 50 coins that he sent us there and Jim fan of heat.
So I wonder who he's a fan of Senator Pup born with 200.
We're just messing with you.
I love it, you know.
Thank you guys So much for the love.
We very much appreciate it.
That's also wants Labour to Miami.
No fish for short.
Yeah, sure, right.
If I didn't if I didn't think the Celtics, that's a sleeper team.
Another one would be the Miami Heat, especially with the kind of culture that they got there with Jimmy Butler.
That's that's definitely Did you guys see Jimmy Butler today? Obviously, the N B A gave these players quite a lot of options.
I don't want to say quite a lot, but gave them a list of options that they can put on the back of their jersey to symbolize different things going on around the world.
That has to do with many different things, depending on the players.
Some people are taking, Of course, social reform, you know, education, just all types of equality is an option.
There's so many awesome options for that.
But there's also the option to go with like your name.
Like LeBron just announced this last week.
He's still going with his name.
Keep it how it usually is on then whether doesn't I don't view that I dislike you taking, you know, not taking a chance to, you know, use your platform.
I just see that as the personal decision.
So but I also find it.
Ah, awesome that the MBA opened that up for the players to have that on their jersey and the WNBA's.
Well, I saw that they have Briana Taylor on a lot of the jerseys and stuff like that.
I thought that was really powerful.
That was pretty cool.
But for me, I said, Jimmy Butler today, he had a little press conference to with Damascus.
Well, which I appreciate so being, you know, Miami being in Florida with the state, that's just doing the when I'm in L A.
So you know it's bad.
It's really, really bad, Like, I'm not saying we're here.
We're not doing great.
I'm saying especially unique being over there in Florida.
I just had a stream with Ryan the other day.
Ryan Anderson, who also is in Florida, was giving me that same spiel.
Um, you know, But with that being said, you know, back to the heat, they're talented team.
There were actually a very big team.
They are pretty young, with a good amount of veteran presence on that seem so that I agree with you.
The heat are very interesting.
They're well coached.
Spoelstra has been there before.
Obviously, there was that ongoing narrative that LeBron took him there, blah, blah, blah.
But he's coast a lot of good teams.
So, you know, Supposed was a good coach.
You definitely gotta give him credit.
I do have a lot of confidence that the Heat are gonna make it interesting in the East, and we got ****ed. Pep.
If that, says Quinn, cook over Lou will, I'm a Lakers fan.
I'm not going with that at all.
Considering Lewis, Louisville's Lou really is the best six man to ever play basket.
