That was wherever the payoff is gonna be.
Our opening topic.
Lightning with credit.
A great I'm that.
I'm down there and start up.
Let's get people missing.
I just got me a new phone.
Mother one was Absolutely It fell off a ladder and just shattered.
Could could open it.
Could unlock it any more about that. I won't.
Experience shouldn tonight.
You're agrees on looking slack? Yeah.
So I would get some people in here.
And what, uh, posting this link around Teoh some my personal friends.
I'll send it to get it going, but, uh, Eric, we have ah, critical question needs your input on a soon as we get people in here.
But until we get people in here, we're gonna hold it because it's gonna be a good one.
Eric turned out like nine contents today.
Like crazy today.
It's been fun down about 1000 season coming back.
Now is the first time I'm actually like You know what? It's we got nb again.
Yeah, Yeah, we're going tomorrow. He's anything.
Me, this and I was like, Yeah, I was like looking for a psychic looking for the on a game or something.
Just having something look forward to exactly.
Once we get up to, Ah, a few more viewers in here.
Well, uh, contributed talking.
We'll start with that goofy question.
Alright, guys, So just little, um a little background.
A Corbyn is in my eighth, and money is sad.
He works, so hopefully we'll hear in like we was not often shooting.
Yeah, He said he'd be around earlier.
Just haven't heard from them right now.
So at the moment, we're gonna, um, sit back, do nothing Good right now.
I just asked really intriguing questions.
Mind, Mind bug? Yeah, actually, a very mind.
But we were discussing Gotham Sinfonia about how fast it is, and, uh, he made a lightning McQueen reference to those who don't know Light and Queen is the main protagonists in Disney Siri's cars in which all the cars are sentence.
So the question is, do the cars and those movies have life insurance or car insurance.
There's our question.
Get some are gets them coming.
I would say she is not my thing.
Where you have more The payout from you? Yeah, You got a You got to support all the lemon.
Um, so into a pool? Yeah, we can are? Yup.
That's I was asked the slack jet.
Create a poll life four.
Okay, poll question.
Does a lightning McQueen, uh, car insurance for life insurance? I can't believe that's the We're gonna leave that there for many.
You have a minute.
The answer this poll.
So please give us your answers.
Please get your answers.
Do not know where you were.
Where you leading to work? I am leaning towards life commands.
The reason why I say that is because in that world, everybody's a car.
So theoretically, there wouldn't be a differentiation between the Internet's types and one already corn ship are like insurance party me.
But Okay, so here's no know how they get on.
Like like like when they're traveling.
Said they probably get on like buses and stuff, Which I mean, would that be car insurance for them, like you know, Or is that just so like, where travelers to you know? So, like, I remember in the 1st 1 um, lightning McQueen was inside the truck room and he fell out so that the truck out like there.
Is there something? Eggs? That was the truck.
Did the truck have liability for lightning falling out? Ah, 100% said life insurance.
It's regarding it.
All right, So now that we're past our sober high questions, I promise you on, um, not intoxicated or anything.
So we're here to talk about the next two days.
The opening days of the n b a. R. Here.
Scrimmages were fun and I enjoyed them.
The I do not think tomorrow will be a spectacle I got in the house to describe tomorrow is going to be a spectacle.
It really is mad because I have not like guys love that.
I haven't been great attention to discriminate in Washington.
Let's put seen that seen that yet like Christmas, even It's like it's like a day for end.
The NBA's normally flies to like, you know, I come home earlier.
You gotta stay down on the pouch.
Gotta just punked up.
Got two great game.
His mom is gonna be a corn.
Two forms of this was random, bro.
Uh, I posted that question in the slack shot.
And apparently Dave ran that question in 2007.
C don't sweater.
Car insurance 1 55 to 45% ****! Should we got from some sort of makes the point.
It is Christmas Eve, essentially Christmas In July's last obvious sort of tomorrow.
Tomorrow we got two games back to back on TNT.
Two Western Conference teams.
Yeah, health insurance.
Um, Utah and New Orleans is Game one, followed by L A Vs L.
A, uh was largely nowhere.
You already know which one's gonna be the prime time that our late winds you up home court advantage.
It's all coming down the home court that I don't know.
I don't know how it's gonna play, but yeah, I'm putting money.
Oh, really? I put my entire paycheck on L.
And again, Yeah.
The Clippers are not gonna be deep.
They are gonna be missing three key players off of there.
Excuse Do you have that affects them? The Lakers are also without the death, but J R and D on over baby China showed out in the scrimmages they were playing.
Coups played well to conclude that a couple of good games.
You using? That's such a polarizing guy.
You had you Koosman sweater one day, and it seems like he's the greatest thing.
You said the next day. And he's Sunder girl.
Should you get near the NBA, it's I'm surprised.
LeBron out, like, is, uh, nice.
Um uh um hurry. Rains.
Yes, we're set up for, um, So, anyways Ah, yeah.
You know, basically lost saying is, um sometimes schools kind of just You kind of get stuff like that.
I guess you'd call me the new clues.
Um, that was uh huh.
Her nominee, but yeah, So it will be interesting to see, um, for I don't know.
Um, we had a pretty both can be hit or miss.
He's streaky, very big grocery.
Like some nights he fits perfectly.
Other nights, he doesn't fit at all.
And that's the thing, cause I, especially seeing like with the Lakers kind of bringing new pieces.
You'd want to seek somebody like who's been there, kind of step up.
So, um and, uh, we want to see that.
So, as a guy that's been system guy who's kind of being that third star mike slated to be that, um, you you want toe do something like that? Yeah.
And it's is gonna be interesting because, uh, Daniel might really to this I feel like Koosman for the Lakers is the equipment of Dillon Brooks for Memphis.
Yeah, If he's having a good game, there's a chance.
There's, like, strong chance.
You, our Lakers, that's there in the right position to win.
Uh, I would argue it's interesting because Dillon Brooks is inconsistencies are like shooting wise, right? Who's just all around the house after, like, who's Is everything right on through? And that's that's like, That's why I feel like is the most annoying Park is at least with some, like shooting or like any aspect of your game.
You could be like, You know what? At least some guy you know, you're gonna hit a few.
Someday could score 20.
Someday you'll lose your a game, and you're like, Dude, you gotta just get your stuff together and figure that out because, um, especially it seemed like the Lakers, whose by depth is something that is of concern.
You can't have a guy like that who's who's slated be 1/3 or fourth Option B.
So, um, like, just inconsistent.
So I think tomorrow, honestly, though, with with all the guys out for the Clippers, I think that the Lakers will put the warning LeBron 80.
Just gonna come out.
Um, ball? Um, yeah, a lot of what a high.
But, um, I still think that if it was seven game series, which I think we'll see these two teams in the conference finals, I'm gonna put money on the Clippers just cause they're gonna have just deputized, um, parsing.
I just think they're better.
I think, uh, the clippers are well equipped to slow down playoff.
Um, the only thing is, it's playoff, Ron.
Yeah, but my issue is like we had it in the He hasn't played playoff basketball in a minute.
So And to just drop in play like like obviously LeBron is gonna he's gonna he's gonna play out units.
But to an extremely interesting to see how, like how they play basketball in that, like in that bubble, like there's not there's no fans, and that's a big part about playoff hospital, right? So beef honesty.
And, uh, that's why they haven't this regular season to start play is nice just cause you're gonna have the end the season like stories and stuff that air obviously, like what makes it fun and then leading stranded playoffs, which will wrap up the intensity.
Some of these teams might see each other already before in this game thing I'm, how possible is just close.
So that's uh huh.
Let's take a look at the first game thinking New Orleans, you talking? Not as exciting by any means.
Um, Zion is eligible to play.
Yeah, you mean he's cleared as of yesterday.
That's the biggest exclamation point on that game.
A lot of people may remember Barrier.
Was it pre season what he went at? Rudy. Go Bear.
I don't think they played in his 19 games, but there was so I guess it was a pre season game because he I remember him like going right eight.
Would you go bare and everybody just flipping out on? Yeah, it will be interesting because Mike Conley look best in his scrimmages than he has all year.
He's looked his best, Uh, no scrimmages from what I saw, Uh, and if he's scoring well, they're playing will.
That could help negate their loss of Bogdanovich.
Of course, you're not gonna fully replace him, but certainly could help.
Joe Ingles is healthy.
Um, that he had some decent place.
So, you know, looking not I still lose, like, streaky, but you're looking good.
Highlights wise stuff.
So And Jack Cafferty men like they couldn't make some noise, especially in just with normal men from going in.
And hopefully it exactly secure a good spot, Like, just build up confidence.
I think they could go with any of these guys that, like, I don't know if they will beat the Lakers or clippers, but definitely run for their money, for sure.
I think they're scary.
Imagine, for just about everyone.
I'm not everyone.
Um, the only thing about one thing about I don't consider anyone on their team a world beater? No, like, top to you guys.
But they have They got Ah, you know, Mrs are a legitimate leader that got routed.
Go Barrett there, um, who is probably a top four center, regardless, how you will get it home, and then you have a bunch of really good, you know, secondary role players ranging from Conley, the Anglos, even Ah, they have Jordan Clarkson who can score off the bench at any point.
So this will have Ed Davis think Ed Davis is still out there.
You can come in and get you a lot of hustle.
So you've got a lot, uh, of death hurt.
Just grind it out.
Teams like, not numbness or like, the same grit and grind thing.
But they got guys that are gonna show up and they're not trouble you and those of us in the playoffs.
What? You're scary, like you can't, but you can't say it came off like it doesn't matter.
Like home court, not being things like you got to come out like every ****yst years to, like, beat these guys, which because that that's why that's why I think is their basic bridge.
So, yes, and, uh, they've got they've got a lot of good chemistry, a lot of good experience.
I think they're gonna be scary outing.
But then on the other side, you have pelicans.
We're gonna play a really hot pace, a little more flash to them.
I'm most excited to see them now.
I want to see him get the eight seed.
Don't my like, that team is just so, like, so young, so fun to watch.
And then it's on top of that.
Just the whole, uh, 80 point of pelicans and fresh round again, uh, long ago on the lawns of B I, Josh Harding, then playing a Lakers.
And, like, I think, like they're not gonna they're not gonna upset him.
But I think that they could put up a good fight.
Like they all the games they played and I saw, like, Lakers Pumpkins.
We always closed until the end until the Lakers kind of took over.
And like, the one game that Amazon was like, it was just a fun game to watch.
So that would be a form of theories, for sure.
Portland? I don't know, man battered her hunger schedule looking I don't want has of the themes in the eighth seed battle, they have a tough schedule there.
Once a lot of both buses, they got shafted.
I mean, they have got they got the Grizzlies.
Blazer is going to be a good one, Barroso there they haven't really told schedule out of them.
Um, if they I understand where examine from because they're getting back nurkic and columns.
What? You're gonna go along, Lee, And what 32 games back three years back Half the nerdish, littler pick and roll is one of the best of the best in the leader.
Um, and I saw mental back go to like and they got to share intruders.
And yet Nurcan was not offensively the guy to say he elevates their defensive water.
You may started before last year.
My I'm still so concerned about their wing deaf.
So I mean, um, because if you look at the best teams in the West, you're looking a teams like the Lakers, Clippers, the Mavericks, even the Rockets, like they all have guys on the perimeter that we're gonna do their primary damage and like having those two back on the background with up a bit.
But you're without server reserves.
A good defensive stopper here without Rodney Hood, who was a decency one guy.
So you're looking at Gary Trans and for any assignments, both of whom are swallowing, too, Like they grab it and put it right.
So I bear is like, That's like I like I've said before men like it's going to come down to the like the benches of all these.
Steve, it's really great you start is gonna show up, but yeah, it's gonna be a big entrance.
The Anfernee Simon's that are gonna come off.
I could see I could see Portland doing about looking at this.
I don't see their scheduled for, like, they got some tough games right there.
Like they and but not like that.
They can't win him, but I don't know, like it was gonna got into Moammar in there, so And I mean, we've seen Daniel in these head to see what he does, but I'm still just really has its own in Portland.
I'm not overlooking them.
They could very easily come out on beat us.
But 15 20 points on the first game won't even diet like compared to the other teams like New Orleans.
I just don't see it.
Um, that would think you would take a another one of those 45 10 stretches from Dame, which he's got in a lot. I'll be here.
But that's just I think the Oscars like there, like a bump Bailey, about 500 when you bring dropping.
So like I'm hesitant, Um, yeah, like if there's if there's one team just based on, like talent and schedule that could that could be from the Grizzlies.
I'm taking the coach.
It's definitely knew others his arm.
I would have thrown Sacramento there until they just had such a terrible.
They're tough turn of events.
You hate to see a bunch of people getting the Corona virus to injuries.
I just feel bad for Bagley man like the dude was ready to go and then just right back to somebody today, months yell was talking about how, like seems like a bunch of Duke guys getting hurt right now from Justice.
One's loaded Marvin Bagley and in some, and I love her Two times Jones got hurt ties.
They talk about how Julia yoga for because if the Grizzlies secret agent cause he's a Duke guy, he's gonna help from down Republicans in a single and with bombing.
But ah, yeah, I mean, the Kings and I've said it before, and if they were healthy, I would still stand by that they were the scariest.
Seemed to be, um, like that Portland is scared but right now it's on me.
There's no one coming for us that matches the pelicans.
Um, in that regard.
I wish you guys had a game against, I guess the delegates.
Oh, you got excited, you know? But my main issue with that is that we just so happen toe have that they are only back to back.
You know, todo back to her to have a role from spurs the pelicans with game.
Because the Spurs Aaron already first.
Or, um and it's a division game, so always gave little weight, but yeah, very convenient.
You just so happen to be there with a man once.
He kind of looks like the end became one time in their No, he comes up that way.
Ally and I have a lot of things. Really.
Well, read it until I like I'm really paying attention like this thing.
Like I'm hopping on the back seat and from the Grizzlies fans, you know, this is a little sauce, huh? It comes off that way to a lot of people, and I do my best not to, uh, being a conspiracy theorist, but I If somebody else is making points out, certainly you're fall in line with them.
Uh, I can see it, but, um, so going on Fridays into that 66 games, Um, the magic in the nets are is gonna be a business that's gonna be worse than may.
Well, what's gonna be worse would be worth magic nets or Suns Wizards, at least does Wizards.
You can see, Like you can see some previously de bourg d and C like, uh, listen there exactly.
You could be playing like you've seen players, brother.
Do you like my big nasstrom? Like I do? I do opted out.
Did he on them? I think you did.
And we're broad.
I remember I was when your team just chilling playing golf. Also.
You Oh, God, yeah.
I don't really **** right.
Never mind that.
So I just received the book.
Um uh, no, I imagined I want to see Aaron Gordon just cause, uh, war.
I feel that we're gonna try and get him.
Uh, no, I will say from the magic Sherman jostle.
I felt wanted a have magic beverages.
Aaron Gordon Look better than I had seen.
And look nice row.
I thought new eighth grade.
He was in my We went to my rival high school, pulled up and just first, like, five minutes a game.
Do is just jumping out of the gym, dunking on these four.
Really? I would love to see him come back to the bay.
I think you could like you fit in. Great, too.
Team we signally guy.
Right now, we got a $17 million exception.
I'm sure we could find a way to make him come back to the bay.
I I saw him like taking people off the dribble pull ups like handled road as a player.
Like he came into the league not being able to shoot like, just like if he defender just kind of was kind of was like a poor man's Blake Griffin.
But now he's coming in like he's got you.
Shoot the three Creative.
Don't you guys got a nice handle? Very Come together Exploring n b a player, so Oh, not theaters.
Because I like watching head.
But I'm not rece.
Just a bunch of plumbers blend those two years.
Yeah, we're gonna see like I want Is Jamal Jamal Crawford still going is still gonna play.
You have these under net.
So I would I would like to see Jamal Crawford.
Jamaat offered kind of ball out on these, uh, these dudes and we were kind of fun. Little throwback.
But, uh, honestly, they should just hop on a plane to go back home.
Honestly, honestly, just give him a by whoever they play in the playoffs, Looking at some of the more legitimate games for letting gap.
Grizzlies Blazers, where they're going on a huge game, Uh, rocks, always a good, always good games.
Thinks it's going to be a fun when I think a lot that one doesn't really have a lot of seeding implications, but I think it could have a lot of ah must work.
You could have a lot of effect on down the line, like if they meet up in the playoffs.
But here's here's something like I was kind of thinking about, like, You know how, like the fun part about playoff matchups and stuff is like, just how chippy gets and like, how How much of that do you think we're gonna see? Just cause these dudes were all living together now like they just see each other off the court.
I feel like no away from like the not the competitive is on the court, but like the stern level or chip ***** where you like yelling right? I feel like that's something that we might see you want to get your day.
We're gonna hear about Cruz Paul.
Finding a secret passageway to the buildings and infiltrating the Rockets is facilities, but no on.
I think it's interesting because you talk about like when the last dance was thought was going on and people talking about like, Oh, players don't chip like that.
Players don't repeat like that more social making media's made people everybody nights like no, at least on the court, at least like maybe off the court, like everybody's buddy.
But we've seen, like, just the last, like, 34 years or in the playoffs, like we've seen some fun match of some chippy ones like we've seen.
We've seen it get heated.
So and I think I think it will be interesting.
I think, uh, I wonder if the lack of fans will make it more or less chippy.
You're I've been wondering about that because sometimes you think about like fans sometimes take people on, but they can also distract other players or kind of me.
Ah, way for players to calm down it.
Sometimes I wonder like, you know, it means you're playing in a game with no fans.
I can hear everything you're saying to me very clearly very clearly.
You whisper, I probably can't some like hand.
I just wonder, like, room.
How is that going to affect the players? Yeah, but I feel like like is the I like knowing all these guys have just seen him play like the work required, like it's going to be competitive.
But there's a different cream competitive and just flat out chippy, which is what playoff well gets, too.
And a lot of that's the fans.
And a lot of that's just, you know, they are not seeing each other off the court, like literally after they play a game like they're not gonna be, You know, you might just run into him at the hotel or something like that would happen.
You're not going to seem like a pool or some **** like it's good.
It's gonna be really different, but, um It would be really interesting to see how that plays out.
Qc High takes effect.
And another thing that we make circle back around at this.
You ever think about how players are recruiting right now? Oh, you know, I really make sense.
See a lot of people on Twitter.
Uh, hypothesizing about who do you think John Marantz recruiting for 2020 water.
Who's trying to get yacht is the hardest.
You know, other things, like on a more your instead of delegates were I should have delegate out.
They're probably all right.
We were able it.
I'm going to, you know, we got a G out there, man.
We got a G playing the mole again for us on the give me started.
Ego Dollar was walking till today.
I know you guys hate of one.
Don't you guys have? It's not even just about us at this point.
You saw all the things he said today.
Say so He was, uh So he tweeted about how area powers was having a good game, but he called her number 23 for Washington.
And so, like, people were flipping out about that because it's just like what he was hyper name like type her name would be.
It's kind of it's kind of petty, but I get it.
It's a not because, like Ariel Powers is significantly short of the number 23 for the Washington Mystics friend.
That's where I see the outrage.
But at the same time, I could also do like, do I like you just like I was really important.
Like going to be like number 30 on the Warriors.
You've seen it before like, but I can see I can I see it, but we'll see how it works.
So then there's, ah interview where he said that he doesn't want his six year old daughter who apparently he, like, see once a year, maybe, uh and, like, doesn't really send money to or anything like supposed to do.
Doesn't want her to play basketball because he doesn't want her to be a lesbian.
Now, my dad that he said that I don't know if it was from today, but I just saw it for the first time today. Wow.
Um, actually was from July January 4th of 2016 when he was playing with the Warriors.
Marburger to, um because so, sadly, because he tweeted that in an area of our school treated him and it close with them again with the photo of that yet was over four years ago.
Man, that's like.
But then, like when she coats with him the first time, talk about like, you can at least say my name.
But it was It's not a big deal on personal bit basis, but like when you think of the implications, especially considering that the W just had its biggest already weekend ever, they'll super good growth so far.
Um, there's a lot of that even dollars in it, very successful in if you just type aerial powers like she probably shoot some up.
You know she gets a lot more popularity or it's more noticed or whatever.
Somebody I mean, that's a small thing.
You know, you can see it, how you want to see it.
But then, like, But then like when she said something about her name just saying like you would just say my name, he was like, uh, no manners were so he would get some sweet and no manners beautifully appeared.
And then she quotes.
We did that sweet with the TMZ headlock.
Okay, so she can't She had a receipt.
So you can, uh, in that road.
That's what happened.
But any man I wish it, um, among the most valuable player.
But Danny seems like kind of piece of ****.
And in like, all the Grizzlies vans full of receipts from Dillon Brooks, and I can't wait till we play into show.
Yeah, I know that I was part I was struggling.
Bruce had his best scrimmage yesterday.
Finally, um, it was hilarious because Dillon Brooks was a very hot topic after the first couple scrimmages and saw it tweeted out like, Yeah, just give me what you think is gonna be Dillon.
Brooks is that line that protect it.
Everybody had, like, 15.
6 of 15 like nobody said he would shoot over 50%.
He said, like, seven, There you go, proving Roman Road.
But let's get back to our schedule ****ysis are breaking a so magic games.
Anybody's gonna be good Celtics books and be good.
Then after that, we've got spurs.
Which incident? See, that'll not not really having a shop together.
But I feel like there it'll be a lot you'll be upon game seeing.
Honestly, I'm not I'm not going to try.
And so that all into the honest I'm just looking forward.
You know? You know, full health might be a one c in a meeting room, but oxen Bagley, but I I'll bring that out of the magics Magic net Sons Wizard.
I put that at the first and crimes of which was watching the free, but, um, yeah, not probably going to tune in because we got magic magnets.
So that would be now, Big girl.
Now, the fun to watch Missy was standing on these girls.
How close to the last one of the day is gonna be rockets? Mavericks, which I think is gonna be one of as you mentioned, one of the top games to watch in the bubble.
Ah, there, back to back seeds our maps gave in ****stan.
Yeah, and then they're 11 in their season series of this series clinching win.
Uh, which could you know, if they were just some Thai standings wise or something that could hurt the ground on the voice that very been popping offered.
Yeah, that's been shooting that thing, man.
It's not a playoff.
So that a curry brother going right? We got it.
We got to keep the current trend going to the final, So I got mad.
Oh, Lord, is that man we gotta keep? Yeah, we gotta keep Sonia del showing up the finals games.
So it goes off and Gary's all that far.
I love this much.
I love this Mavericks team like they're having fun.
Like prison yous don change.
Um, I love the colleagues. Sign on the warriors.
So I love that you don't know not to, um um I like I like they got they got the piece.
Is that making it? Like they got a Pete? They got the pieces to make a like a run.
Um, yeah, I could see him obl a.
I could see him may. Having an upset.
Oh, I I told him about Luca back in, like, 2000 16 years off my debt.
Like oven herd on this kid.
I saw him all the way back then.
And ever since then we've just been my constantly Fanboy over and, yeah, got to.
But like doctors West conversing, they they've kind of sh right.
Like both times they played, the Lakers won, they lost a close one, and then the other time that schmack him And, like everybody was planning, Um, yes.
Oh, like they If they match up with the Lakers in the conference finals, I could see him going on the women.
I don't know if they were gonna make it there, but, um, you guys run out using a good guy way have.
Like, if I get scroll back, there are messages on Twitter TMZ or like, grab our conversations out of the air somewhere like you would see the time stamps on them from, but yes, what are we going to circle back around to? A minute ago after we talked about the games because you thought that you were to talk about something you've got to remember we had something like, we'll circle back around to that, and I don't remember what So are you saying that I've already said are coming back around itself at this point? Um, we'll see Well, I'm gonna haven.
And Eric, we were gonna keep that on the deal.
We've holding their layer him.
Okay? Commerce ex Erica, Steamy email today we got from Ah, I guess publicist or PR? Someone about, uh, aerial powers in to and joining with gaming organization to promote registering to vote gamers.
Because, of course, E sports is a very large target.
So, um, that's all, Eric, you reach out, and I'm gonna start instead of an interview with her.
I mean, and it's Ah, I've never heard of it being a game myself, but I'm looking at it like surprised because twitch sand own days clear.
Take two does too.
Okay, in a little I'm not hyper eggs.
What? Wearing on my head? Okay, we're poker tour.
Um, hi, res studios.
I get a lot of big names in here. I'm surprised.
I've never heard of initially, but I go.
Yeah, um sounds pretty cool.
Uh, I heard of 28 I know you.
I saw they had some record numbers.
Uh, really, really strong opening weekend.
I don't remember the exact numbers but pretty much number up across the board.
They secured 13 more ESPN appearances after such a strong and no, that'll go far.
Of course, In the chat, Corey, uh, has started watching along with me.
We've been general, um, my team her a really strong second half for his name in a really poor second half second game.
But there were some really good storylines.
Sylvia Fowles moved out the first all time rebounding.
Uh, Sabrina has got a strong debut.
Yeah, I saw, um, the storm are back to where they were with ministry were already, uh, which is tough.
Um, see who else is up there? I'm missing the The Atlanta Dream.
Uh, had, like, the best offense of the opening weekend after being dead last last season on the up the most points over their first few games, which is interesting.
I had some really strong rookie performances.
I'm gonna answer.
It looks like they play in Alaska Airlines Arena.
Yeah, well, except that's what Google says, but, um, but it was a really strong we can.
I watched a lot of the through the pass.
Um, which is cool.
And so week passes only 17 books for the whole season.
For every team, Really good, solid investments, significantly better than MBA, the past like the interface and software itself.
So I've had it for, like, three seasons now.
They actually gave me a gift card for being a return member, and I used to get jersey Who? No, um, come have to jerseys.
Uh, that John Marin and mind of you majors you so pretty cool.
But yeah, it was a really strong opening weekend.
Had some surprise performances.
I mean, just a lot.
There's just lots of aerial powers who we're talking about, actually, Dad.
A really strong game for the reigning champ.
Even without, uh, Elena Della Donne, she had, like, 28 points in like the first game just kind of popped off one of my favorite things about the W just exes and knows about it, too.
Really, Three tournaments really, really fundamental.
Really easy to pick up on Morrison.
An MBA like they're not doing anything that n b A teams don't do.
It's just really easy to pick up on.
Break it down a little easier.
The last shooting unions.
You media Korea talked about doing it a couple times.
Once he determined where his loyalty is gonna lie.
Uh, he's leaning towards.
I think he's at the aces, this guy toward of mystics.
Let me go back and see what course said earlier.
He said, Um, let's see here.
I'm gonna find out what he said I can't quite remember.
But ah, yeah, he said.
He's so far most enjoyed the Mystics, the Sun and the aces.
Well, in some, that would be cool to see whoever he picks.
I remember when he found out Laimbeer was the aces coach.
Kind of kind of skewed him early, and he's watching the aces without this camp age, which is a huge loss for them and the so he's really getting not the full effect in that regard.
But hopefully, if thanks return to normal next season, will be able to.
How are they doing their season? Is it is it like, uh, 22 games there? I am G Academy up in, uh, present in Florida.
Um, just kind of someone to the NBA's uh so much of the NBA's bubble that got it.
The wobble, one of the One of the interesting things about it, though that makes it different is that they actually have some of their kids there so that they still holding on the sidelines.
Sometimes we're going to see the kids.
I plan patty cake or watching the game.
We're just kind of this kind of cool.
Uh, across both these leaks pick Florida, like, especially like with the case numbers and stuff, like, just obviously work out like you got the open and stuff, but you can for a weird spot, But, like, I guess Florida just had the right facilities in the right proximity.
Bobby, you work out, I guess.
Like we're seeing no more, like over or like, positive test for a minute. Please.
We are working across all sports.
The bulls are working like that is currently everybody just kind of Moreland's meant my Florida teeth.
Yeah, I don't Maybe we should just use the bubble life here in real life.
Just figure that we tried Teoh make.
No, I got SpongeBob.
I'm so where they come out.
This is doing a boat.
You have, like, cities month in, like that greatest 12 episode ever.
Don't any but another thing that happened today other than our wave of constant our potential interview.
We are making a lead fantasy team Fantasy league.
So if you wanna play, let me know.
Down, Uh, we're gonna have a paid and a free Yeah, I take my take my 20 grand.
I don't wait trying to figure out housing work out, but, um, yes, we had a huge wave of constant today, and I'm hoping, hoping once things our big hope remains.
I hope it stays that way.
We'll get storylines and its playoff promises.
Always just fantasizing time for new content opinion.
Like everybody's got an opinion about something.
All of you saying something.
Um, going from there, you know, Eric speaking interviews.
I'm going to speak this into existence really quick.
Um, the girl who we interviewed, um, the draft guy for I don't know if I told you that she's a rep for the and the melting.
I'm gonna try to hook that up.
I'm going forward. I'm aiming for it.
I'm going for it.
But, uh, yeah, that would be super cool.
Where most recent post was about him.
I didn't know that until today.
Did not know that until today.
Uh, so I'm a way Stay tuned. Stay tuned.
That's it's just, uh I'm really looking forward to this other one.
I think I think this one coming up for a preview since we're talking about it, um, things have really cool cause aerial powers.
There's a lot of things that I'm familiar with.
Her four off the court, She was involved with two K league earlier.
She's a big top streamer when she plays.
Um, you know, she does a lot of gaming, which is why she would this gaming initiative worker, like, top of being a hooper, um, and that she's been one of the key voices and their social initiatives, which is pretty cool.
So I think that really cool opportunity I've never done interview, so I'm kind of nervous about it, but, um is gonna to cover a lot of different things.
We're gonna kind of go all over the place so healthy, all committed to be fun.
You just don't do it like, yeah, you already got the charisma and you got there's gotta be some next level contract.
I'm hoping so I know I might hit a Matthew because he did an excellent job with the draft.
The draft interview with Leslie Garner were you? So that's can be cool.
We're going to see what we can do.
But, uh, however, Corbyn is that's time here.
May Maybe you gotta next year because he gets those late shifts that works at the last minute.
Are you excited to see what he's got? Safer.
Like the Clippers Lakers game The morning I was painting for May your brain energy for us this week.
We got no dog in this race.
You got years, but Corbyn cores one right now carrying the load he's got.
He's got gold championship aspirations right now.
So Eric does to our check here.
Yeah, you see, staying quiet.
But, you know, uh, these about the bucks.
I just don't see anybody else being done in the East.
To be honest, I like I like fixers.
Um, well, okay, let's talk about the bucks from not books fan's perspective.
So here's my thought for the bucks.
The Onley team, I'm afraid of again, is to Ron.
So from my perspective, without still can't agree ****, Um, me.
Even without Kawai.
They still have the personnel to but slow him down enough where they get out.
Why? Just pushed him over the hump, you know, and I feel like having something like down on the floor with the honest, like, Might have done something without something like, Oh, I like I understand you honest eons and eons.
Gun Freder, man, like most years, my thing, though, there's nothing compared to last year, right? You lose, Kawai, you're never gonna fully replace the why.
Right, you've got see Jacome stepping forward, elevating his game on.
And I would also argue physically, not skill.
What's physically Siachen can aggravate your honest work little longer, Little Hollier.
Uh, just he's not a skillful on defense.
I like Jonah just blow by his Cregger like he's quite cool square quicker on his feet and somebody like Yonas, he's gonna be able to blow by him.
And once he gets that spread umbrellas, it's Sarosi I, uh but its interest because I was working on this piece about the Grizzlies and they have to put the Raptors and I have learned some but the Raptors, that blows my mind.
Let me go pull it upside and quoted correctly, just so I don't say it wrong.
So the Grizzlies play the rapture.
Celtics books back to back top five years, but the Raptors? The Raptors of the second fewest points in the paint in the league while also being the best three point defensive team in the league.
Then they scored.
The second was most points off turnovers.
So, like AM attacked the middle range man.
That's why we're over.
Here is the thing.
They give up a lot of offensive boards and so, like, you still want to drive attack.
But like, I mean, look at the three point lock.
You can't write like the Bucks.
More per policy we are.
Of course, it was not be as big of a thing like to me that still scary.
Especially if the Bucks shooters are not hitting.
Yeah, like they repeat what they did last year.
Essentially, if, like if Chris Middleton comes out and this is like his first, like five shots, Oh gosh, it's just like Berg Lopez or somebody picks it up like, Yeah, I don't really buy the Raptors.
Obviously I always look good, but I For some reason, this might just be me being hopeful.
But I've always started.
76 is just never play up how good they can possibly be.
And I think if they did bacon, bacon, one of these by just have not I have never seen it.
I just have this feeling that they have what it takes.
And, like, how we were one collide bounce shot away from seeing, then play last year.
So I would want to see a 60 bucks.
Um, you know, I think I got the town to do it.
I just don't know if they will, which is sad, but, um would be and I think that they said these person is just maybe me being hopeful.
But I would I would think that they could put up a fight and maybe beat the bucks.
Um, somebody pointed out in the slack chat about how the watching the six years with Simmons of the four, especially when NBC's not on the floor.
You could just see how much better.
Yeah, and like, you'll be able to stagger that you now that you know, you could play for Claire, but out and beat on 1/4 playing with one Plan B would like, uh, stratum with some shooters like his post up.
Like they they can do a lot of different things, like they still like they have a good team.
I think they could do it.
But, um, you know, I just never seen him play up to their potential, right? Her, which is frustrating.
I can imagine all the dude that six years we'd like just thrown **** at the TV.
But, um, like, I would love to see this year be the year that they kind of figured out and details are not necessary. Dethrone the books.
They're not look throwing technically, But, you know, it will be fun to watch.
Yeah, it'll be interesting to see how the six do, because I think they're in a really tough spot where their two best players can't share the floor that much.
And that had so and you think like AOL comes on like Simmons developing that shot.
Like we said, we I know we saw him here a couple like he's got, He's got to be able to be a threat from the outside.
So in beacon work in the post and I open the floor.
And when they when they said that he had been seeing, like a psychiatrist or something, I don't like Swiger way crazy and like, I mean, I've dog Vincent is my cell phones were occasionally I love a good shooter.
Three you coward and Ben Simmons.
You know, like, I love it a joke but that our treaty rights giving you content like, may might they brought my things like, bro, you've been playing this game your entire life, like you tell me either.
You know, like you.
Oh, you know how to shoot like it.
Just translate that like you really do this.
I get paid to play this game.
I just premiere. At least.
I'm sure a lot of people to like It's just like, how have you not been able to develop that when you're playing basketball, Damien 24 7 and you get paid millions dollars to it.
It's like, Yeah, I get signed.
Something you have never done like a ball. You've seen it Go in.
You know how it works.
Like I've never seen him.
She pull ups and, like on his high school highlight, I looked the man Moberg brought him deal over like killing it and like you would pull up from, like, through, like, a mixed day with 30.
And you just think, Yeah, like, it comes out of that.
And, you know, you said he's gonna be shooting.
Um, but, you know, he said that three other seasons ago, so he No, no, he got up against the Grizz and their scrimmage.
Um, think you hit one of, like, two.
Really? I thought you won against news that made money.
You guys omelets and I should When that's hilariously really, that man's gets, uh, the entire spectrum here going crazy when he shoots the three.
That's what he knows. Bad.
Do this when you know you got it.
Figure out your game, But again, I wonder how the lack of fans will contribute to have been seven.
Feels about you heard, in fact, very life.
Already telling him to pull over.
He's gonna possible, which will be, you know, hopefully hopefully for him at least, Like clears, his mind is just like you know, all of these play and comes not because otherwise the dude is gifted like, yeah, he's not been able to shoot the bodies of fringe damage.
All Star player like every year.
By putting out It's so interesting to think about, you know, I just recently thinking about it.
Like I wonder if the lack of fans with the global environment will make some players better in some players, where it's like what we see, like anybody have a significant drop off like I wonder like, Well, anybody, like, take a step up that we didn't see coming.
I feel like a lot will be like energy players, like as you kind of just plug into the system where, like role players honestly like role players who in playoff games and stuff like who like, will pop off or in life, they feed off the crowd's energy and some money.
So money that comes are not necessary now because I feel like he's win with skill.
But somebody like uh was a mantra.
Hair like he's recently start off very energetic player like you came in, did your dirty work and like stuff and the crowd would feed off that light You.
Either we're shutting the crowd up and you're playing to that or you had your home climb back in your book.
So with nobody there like I was still gonna do like, they're gonna play how they play.
But a big day is going probably come onto like those energy guys who feed on crabs so early age isn't it will be interesting.
Like the pad Dev's more rumors about his uses.
I was like, I got If you don't the crowd.
And I know from my personal experience like it's a lot easier to silence your thoughts to the roar of the crowd or just to the other sound effects than if you're doing, like sitting there just listening to basketball chatter.
Yeah, playing a five on five scrimmage in an empty gym is a lot harder to kind of block out.
Like, Oh, man, I'm so tired.
You hear the crowd got the crowd just kind of picked A.
I feel like I don't feel like the entering of media that have been using, like the scrimmages is gonna do that.
I don't think they should, like, do fake fan noise.
Really, I really I'm Come on, I'm on the other side.
I feel like at least the kind of like present that, at least for the players say, because I I think it's gonna be a hard like It's gonna be a hard no with no fans at all, especially in a playoff environments, when you kind of mitigate that with some fan noise there.
So, like something to kind of give you a semblance of normalcy and what, like praying.
But at the same time, I think it's a bit like as a fan, he would be fun if you were just hear it like what they're saying, like on the court.
I would give I would love it if they didn't pay money to hear them talk **** like hear what they're saying.
Switches on small.
I would look it, and that's what they That's one thing about the W games, like you can really hear the communication and switch here like Colin plays and stuff in the commentators on that and talked about like, how do you think this will affect scouting? Because you'll be able to hear everything so clearly and so vividly like you could take that after game.
My If Chelsea Berry comes down and holds her left fist up and does one pinky up like this is what's coming that you can put those two together and a lot more forces you to change the game plan.
So right here in a more calm environment, you can retain that better so that I'm clear, see out that will affect the NBA games.
Well, I don't think they should do the fake fan noise because I think at the end date like Louisville said, like, I don't know who that immediate arenas for.
I'm not in here thing.
I was just locked into the game.
I think I get like that.
You'll have those players that when the Lakers came out and like active, like their fans in the stands, recordable with, Oh, like I close, he does like, are the players to lose like their fans are.
They're gonna photo shop there.
Photoshopped players are fans in the stands.
That's what's gonna happen.
They photoshopped everybody else just for Lakers games like this information and they can't something, man.
And then I can already hear.
Now LeBron average 30 12 and eight with no fans.
I never did that were played through like the black plague.
Oh, man, I I'm just waiting on it like that's danger to wait I'm not even gonna engage in that conversation coming to bring you.
Were you trying like you're proving that to yourself? Like yeah, no ****.
Like you said, that's just that's the people that I hope.
Yeah, walking style.
Like I'm just ready for the foot is I'm going to be in flames, you know, more goods at home.
But it's waited.
What, six months? Less than 24 hours? Yeah.
So we're good having like you see how everything shapes up.
It's gonna be a lot of time.
We started watching much.
That cannot be a work by.
Look, mbah a c briefly dot com is gonna be your good friend where I need over our cable doesn't work right now.
Are you two? You're gonna want to go to Ibnu four like the number four everyone free up.
That was my big thing that was in your what If you miss a game n b a HD replaced icom don't sing.
I didn't know, but I will.
Yeah, we should agree.
Corbyn said he had a little bit of emergency hologram and then carbonate beauty this on the replay.
It was gonna Here's 10 where I'm in it.
