00:00:03
Well, um, it was a foul, all right.
00:00:09
It looks like we're live the Nets coach.
00:00:15
**** if I know no one to watch it get.
00:00:18
Um, yeah, was Atkinson he got the ax, You son of a *****. It is, Jack.
00:00:26
Yeah, which makes me feel because I remember him in college being an absolute stud and being projected like top five.
00:00:33
Pick that he was back into college back then.
00:00:36
That's what kids did.
00:00:38
And I heard his hand.
00:00:41
I think it missed most of the season.
00:00:45
And as it seemed like he was in college, like eight years, Yeah, he might have been.
00:00:51
And then he ended up being a second round pick, and he was just never really anything in the n b.
00:00:58
A was really like the forced memory that I have of someone like going back to school and really hurting their draft stock was shocked.
00:01:13
Oh, it's definitely happens, but it's ah, it's the 1st 1 that I remember because it was like the first year I washed college basketball.
00:01:21
New mass was good, so you can figure out the 16 18 months ping.
00:01:26
And that was on.
00:01:29
So anyway, yeah, they opened up this League of Ton in the last couple of minutes, and 14 point leading is only one starter on the court.
00:01:47
That's right, right? And granted.
00:01:52
It's against Brooklyn's taxi squad, but there's still some good players out there.
00:01:56
So they got a better squad that it did last night.
00:01:59
Oh, yeah, they arrested guys last night.
00:02:01
Big time.
00:02:03
Alan didn't play.
00:02:04
Uh, Harris didn't play, didn't play.
00:02:09
Hopefully, it doesn't put up 51 again.
00:02:12
That's that money.
00:02:13
That's that money Thean efficient, meditating right by open shots, open shots, overcovered shots.
00:02:24
I don't care if it's only worth two points, especially players with Hayward skills that, like those shots of money, they're going to go down a hell of a lot more than they're gonna miss.
00:02:33
So, um, I see we got a couple of people who have joined us, so that's Ah, that's awesome.
00:02:40
This is in a trial run for us.
00:02:43
This is our first time ever jumping onto SportsCastr.
00:02:47
We are on the section five podcasts, which you can find anywhere.
00:02:51
Podcasts are found.
00:02:53
You name it Apple, Google, Spotify, etcetera.
00:02:55
You know where to get podcasts.
00:02:57
You can also follow us on Twitter handle was right there underneath the video, and we saw a lot of people doing stuff on SportsCastr and figured What the hell? Let's give this a shot.
00:03:09
Um, let's see what it's like.
00:03:10
Give it a go, and, uh, have some have some fun talking about the games live because we're always talking about it after the fact.
00:03:15
So we're going to give, give our insights, maybe talk about just random stuff.
00:03:23
Like, if you heard the job on peace, Uh, we're just, like, random thoughts that we think of what we're watching these games.
00:03:29
Um, so we're not going to give you play by play, because if you won't believe I play like you're gonna go to the professionals, they're gonna do a better job at it than we are.
00:03:39
So, um, we're just gonna talk basketball talk.
00:03:43
The game gives some insights on what we see, and, um, hopefully it doesn't suck.
00:03:48
So, um, our show typically has four of us, but there's only two of us on today.
00:03:56
Ah, Mark and I'm joined by Adam.
00:03:58
So we've got I think, about 28 or so episodes up for our pods.
00:04:04
So kind of getting up and running into and hitting our stride.
00:04:08
Uh, I can see a couple of Twitter followers of the virtual truck today.
00:04:15
Oh, yeah, I seen lucky.
00:04:17
And I think there was Ah, I know there's what One woman that follows this.
00:04:21
That's what I think with the glasses.
00:04:23
Oh, awesome.
00:04:25
Pretty right there with the dog.
00:04:31
Think other Twitter Beautiful.
00:04:36
What showed out? Teoh? That follower.
00:04:39
Um, can you get on that gives, like, the name Section five for those of you who don't know us comes from Adam and G, who is also part of the podcast on season ticket holders in section five.
00:04:55
Do you guys have access to get on that screen? I yet gm they sent an email to G.
00:05:01
He has to fill out a couple of forms, and then they they send you an email on when they schedule you for, like, you have to kind of get scheduled for when you're gonna jump on, right? What's the waiting one? Which game? They're gonna get us on hopefully soon and you get the whole game.
00:05:18
From what I I would think not.
00:05:21
They probably only need to give you, like, 1/4 or something, right? It's like the bleacher bar a friend way where you get like and ending with a view of the field and that, you know, there's so many season ticket holders, right? You want you want Everyone happened is only eight games.
00:05:37
They You need a spot for pop here soon. Yeah.
00:05:40
Yeah, he was Is there would be the last time I saw Lucky there just now.
00:05:45
Right? Okay.
00:05:49
It looks like we're a little out of sync up.
00:05:51
Here we go.
00:05:52
Romeo is not gonna finish.
00:05:53
That's alright. Coolies spoiler alert.
00:05:55
She's just so I let you No, no, it's ah, it's all good.
00:06:02
Now we know what we're dealing with, and we know that I'm about a second and 1/2 behind you.
00:06:07
So we kind of had a feeling that we were a little bit out of sync when you had said something about Robert Williams jumping out of the building and I turned for my screen.
00:06:16
And then I see it happening That's not in sync at all.
00:06:21
But anyway, I want to play with this and see if in any way we can.
00:06:28
I don't know what any of these buttons dio, um, on the page.
00:06:31
Yeah, because I heard a rumor that there were some stats on here.
00:06:36
I can create a call I can't even see with others.
00:06:43
Okay, There's a mute button that might have been traced.
00:06:45
Problem? Um, yeah.
00:06:50
I don't see any kind of insider or anything here.
00:06:54
That's too bad.
00:06:55
Oh, I got, um, Yeah, I got the tap.
00:06:58
But you dropping like this stuck.
00:07:01
Hey, it happens.
00:07:04
Uh, it's a trial around.
00:07:05
We said we said that we have no agenda, No plan, no nothing at all.
00:07:10
So, um, anyway, the the seas have a nice little lead.
00:07:16
They're up 18.
00:07:17
Um, and, um, we'll see here.
00:07:21
Hayward leads the way with 10 points, Jalen got eight.
00:07:24
And, uh, Robert Williams, who is someone that we've been talking about a lot on the pod, actually has seven points.
00:07:35
He's two for two. Any three for three from the line.
00:07:37
So hey, has one block.
00:07:40
He has no rebounds.
00:07:41
So he's He's shown up pretty well on the offensive end so far.
00:07:45
And that's something that is is definitely welcome, because, uh, I think I was going to saying in may be our last pot, maybe two pods ago Robert Williams has done the same thing in Ah, the Bubble.
00:08:02
And, you know, at the end of this season, when he came back, as he did the rest of the time, he was with the Celtics, and that's a whole lot of nothing so good to see a little bit of something out of him.
00:08:13
Obviously, it's a very small sample size, but and our boy Wanamaker has six points already in six minutes.
00:08:20
He's really so much he gets new marching and got so much hate over the last 24 hours or so because I think I didn't like was that.
00:08:32
They would say, Oh, it was like, Oh, I want to make an isolation I don't want to see that And I know exactly what position you're talking about.
00:08:39
He got thrown the ball like a hot potato, like three seconds on the shot clock and, like he had to do something like, I don't like, what do you want him to do? They're like, I want you any more minutes.
00:08:50
They should be because Kendall's not here because Tim does not getting his minutes, and so that's putting him, you know, like you know you're not setting him up to fail, but he's going against a lot better competition, Right? And Marcus Smart also followed out in the third quarter last night, so Wanamaker was just thrown into the fire and asked to do more than then.
00:09:11
He's normally asked to Dio, and you didn't play while it was one of his.
00:09:15
I'd say probably one of his worst games of the season, but it came less than a week after.
00:09:21
May be his best game of the season because I thought he was walking because he was efficient.
00:09:26
He was making the right place.
00:09:27
He was doing everything that you want, a backup point guard to Dio and he He wasn't throwing the ball away.
00:09:33
He wasn't doing anything that just makes you kind of scream at your TV.
00:09:39
He was just doing the right thing, making the right play and not trying to do too much.
00:09:47
And that's what he done most of this season.
00:09:49
So it was that there was a time right before the All Star break.
00:09:54
Quick he was.
00:09:56
He was like a top 75 fantasy player.
00:09:59
I remember looking at him like when Campbell was hurt and I think, I don't know.
00:10:03
Jalen might have been banged up and he was getting Woman's.
00:10:05
They should have been.
00:10:06
And he was like an efficient point guard, like getting right.
00:10:15
He is an efficient style of player because of what I just said, that he makes good decisions.
00:10:21
He's basketball.
00:10:23
I Q is pretty high.
00:10:25
Aside from the play last night, worried pump fake nobody twice it looked like, can't against your bottom like there's nobody here. Just lay it up.
00:10:34
It comes, I guess.
00:10:35
Bread splitting the good.
00:10:40
Good. Let's see it.
00:10:41
I'm a couple of seconds behind you, so I still see Sean Marks.
00:10:44
But who was coming in? You know, you're watching the game on ESPN and you're watching the local game.
00:10:55
I'm watching ESPN.
00:10:56
That's our problem.
00:10:58
I don't know way now.
00:11:02
We can just we'll just wing it.
00:11:03
It's fine.
00:11:04
It's working.
00:11:06
Um, so we got We don't want to make a Hayward.
00:11:09
Yeah, Carson Edwards. Oh, God.
00:11:11
Carson Edwards.
00:11:14
Ah, he's I had I don't want to say I had really high hopes.
00:11:18
One because I knew it was inconsistencies in college.
00:11:21
I wasn't just looking at that tournament game that he had against Virginia.
00:11:25
I want to say, But, uh, I definitely thought that he would be that scoring punch off the banks and he really hasn't been.
00:11:33
He's had Funny is going and going into the tournament last year, I had that exact same view point of view that he was just really inconsistent.
00:11:42
And after watching the time that I'm like, wow, like this dude could get his own shot like That's crazy.
00:11:48
Um, so it is a little disappointing because I did expect him to kind of he's supposed to be like our Duncan, Robertson said.
00:11:59
Just touch and shoot, catch and shoot, catch and shoot like that's what I That's what I wanted.
00:12:04
That's what we thought he was gonna be.
00:12:05
I mean, Junkin Robbins is a whole other animal.
00:12:08
He's as good as it gets in that role.
00:12:10
He's He was probably like the next generation of like a Kyle Korver who's like is an all time great shooter and gives you nothing else.
00:12:20
Robinson's got a little bit of a better body, you know, bigger body than corporate, so we can probably give you a few more things.
00:12:26
But, um, I was hoping that he could do something like that.
00:12:32
Maybe settle into.
00:12:34
He would have to be a backup point guard, I would think, because even though he plays like a two, he's he was too small.
00:12:40
It could be a consistent to in the league, especially when he's as raw as he is.
00:12:46
So it was kind of a tweener, and that's not as big a deal in today's MBA as it used to be, but that yeah, semi wide open and he got it.
00:12:59
You know, some reasonable guys.
00:13:02
We get a little bit of hate and like fixed.
00:13:04
I get a little more.
00:13:08
He's he's a bench guy and he's He's a solid bench.
00:13:12
Guys defensively responsible.
00:13:13
He is improving on the offensive end.
00:13:16
How long does that last year or two years ago? He's He's not hitting that shot that we just saw him make 10 seconds ago.
00:13:22
Whenever it waas, I checked the numbers.
00:13:25
This year, he said, he actually has more.
00:13:27
It is the best win share year when you add his defense and offense, Andy shooting the best percentage of threes, okay and his minutes higher because when shares is a ***ulative stat.
00:13:37
So if he's playing more minutes he would be, he would have more time to turn the monument.
00:13:42
It's OK, yeah, So there's there's definite improvement there in.
00:13:46
I mean, the the bio test shows it to you. Julie.
00:13:49
He's been better this year.
00:13:50
He was still on expendable guy when they have a roster crunch at the end of the year, which they will, because they have a ton of graphics and it's honey young guys.
00:13:59
He might be a guy who is not here anymore, but there's a spot for him in the league.
00:14:02
He's gonna play somewhere.
00:14:03
He's going to stick around for a bit and he's going to contribute like he could have a Jae Crowder type of career.
00:14:09
Is there a little bit different by like he's got some crowded happily Jae Crowder was really young, like one crowd was with Dallas.
00:14:19
Kind of a no usually kind of guy and artist game is really has developed offensively, I think because he was getting a ton of time with the Celtics won.
00:14:28
Uh, yeah, he was just kind of thrown into the fire, but semi, yes, some he's improved.
00:14:37
And I think that, you know, like you said with the young guys coming to the defense what we get, But, um, get smart.
00:14:48
Came out a little compete.
00:14:51
Oh, that's not great.
00:14:52
Oh, yeah, I see that now.
00:14:54
Um, but seventies like again, like guys are expecting him to be, like, way more than he is.
00:15:00
And it's like, Okay, well, he's not going to take him with you, Not like cancer.
00:15:05
And that's when we got him for That's it.
00:15:10
And that's another guy who I'm a big ***** cantor fan.
00:15:15
I just love that style of player that the dinosaur, low post old school big man who doesn't have as much use in the league anymore.
00:15:23
But Cantor is.
00:15:25
He has his shortcomings.
00:15:26
He is not a star in this league anymore.
00:15:28
He would have been a star had he played in the nineties, but he's just not that anymore.
00:15:32
Um, and it's not just the game has changed.
00:15:37
Even last year on a bum shoulder, he was the the starting center on the friggin team that made the West.
00:15:44
Yeah, and that was by the Falcons.
00:15:46
Nurkic got hurt, but he was playing on the badge, told he was and and Nurkic is another guy who kind of is in that mold.
00:15:55
Nurkic is about anarchy is an absolute beast.
00:15:58
But I have been really happy with cancer across the board.
00:16:03
We know he can't guard on the perimeter.
00:16:05
We know he can't hit that getting into long rings jumper with any kind of consistency.
00:16:11
He's got his shortcomings, but he is one of the best offensive rebounds in the league.
00:16:16
And that's something the Celtics haven't had in years can.
00:16:21
Yeah, right.
00:16:23
I mean, that guy, that guy was pretty good, too.
00:16:29
Yeah, you get clean up.
00:16:31
Yeah, Yeah.
00:16:32
I mean, when you're as good as he is at everything, but But the, uh, the people out there screaming, they want Cantor.
00:16:43
You have his minutes cutting the playoffs like we're going to see him in the playoffs and better or worse, like he's going to play and he's gonna contribute.
00:16:52
He's gonna contribute Teoh a playoff team this year, just like he did last year in Portland.
00:16:57
It's just it's match.
00:16:58
It's There's some teams that he won't play against, right? Some.
00:17:01
Seems like if we play Milwaukee, guaranteed somebody's going to get his 15 20 minutes yet, like it's gonna happen because he plays decent defense against um against yet so is going to be and there's gonna be also games on Cancer doesn't play that much, but again, it's It's just natural based.
00:17:19
Its matchup at It's situational, too.
00:17:22
So some people freak out about You can't just This isn't okay.
00:17:26
Well, you could just bust out the same line of every day, right? You know that that's not good enough to do that.
00:17:32
There are some teams that can do that.
00:17:34
The Celtics aren't that they got there, a couple of guys at the top who are who are great and they're gonna play the bulk of the minutes.
00:17:41
But that second half of the roster or the bottom 2/3 of the roster, even you're going to see different guys in different situations.
00:17:48
And I think that's probably a best case scenario because as we know they're there, bank doesn't go very deep.
00:17:56
There's question marks on just about everybody after you know, the top couple of guys Cantor and someone said this a phone finger.
00:18:06
I'm not quite sure what that means, because this is the first time.
00:18:08
But ah ah, unquestioning it.
00:18:10
Thank you.
00:18:14
That's what me off the rails Let's just, like, popped up on my screen.
00:18:20
It was like, Boom, um, but, uh and, uh and she just started following us, too.
00:18:26
So thank you for that.
00:18:27
And, uh, you know, we appreciate you listening.
00:18:29
That's that's great.
00:18:31
Uh, so the one thing, the one thing I do like about this bubble and obviously did not want a pandemic to occur I wanted this to be the regular offseason, but I don't think that this has done for us.
00:18:44
It's one.
00:18:45
It's basically given guys another year of experience without season ending and like you're seeing so much improvement from a lot of young guys, like namely, like Jaylen Brown is just looks like a completely He looks like a completely different player than he did before the bubble.
00:19:03
Right, if you have never watched the Celtics game before and you just watched like these three, you know, three plus games, you will look at this team and take Jaylen.
00:19:11
Brown is hands down.
00:19:12
Their best player.
00:19:13
Yeah, yeah, and he's just slashing, He shooting, he's creating.
00:19:18
I mean, he's doing a lot for us right now, and that's been one of the positives and travel like guys don't have to travel like that's That's big, right? That's what we have.
00:19:31
Dudes on a resort.
00:19:35
Play basketball and don't go off for wings or don't go to a strip club.
00:19:39
Just stay at a dash guy outside in the lobby and don't listen to cattle.
00:19:45
You Berries, tweets.
00:19:47
All these don't actual events.
00:19:49
Might have got some of those details wrong, but I know it was a great Yeah, but yeah.
00:19:57
All right.
00:19:58
I'll see that in a second jump to get out of here.
00:20:01
E jumped on debt, was gently got that.
00:20:06
That game was so frustrating.
00:20:09
Like reverts a nice player.
00:20:11
He really is.
00:20:12
But he shouldn't drop 50 on anyone who's any good.
00:20:15
And I can't remember if we're missing the guys or not.
00:20:18
I'm sure that the hospital Celtics were in full effect and they were missing some guys.
00:20:21
But, uh, I mean, I can't replicate.
00:20:23
It was it was like, six months ago, But yeah, with, uh, with Jalen.
00:20:28
And I've talked about this on the pod.
00:20:30
Maybe not necessarily well, Jalen, but more so I am.
00:20:35
He was playing with confidence and he goes to the rim and he's expecting to score every single time, and that's something that we didn't see in previous seasons.
00:20:43
With him, he go to the rim, he'd be a little bit tentative or he'd be a little bit unsure of what he wants to dio.
00:20:48
Now he gets knows like I'm more afraid acting you embedded in you.
00:20:53
I'm going to do whatever I want if you can stop me.
00:20:56
Okay, fine, you stop me, but you're not gonna get me next time.
00:20:59
And that is something that I think is such a huge factor for really every player at any level, whether it's n b a, whether it's directly get the why.
00:21:12
If you play with confidence, you're gonna play better.
00:21:15
And it's not something that you can find on an Excel spreadsheet or, you know, in a stat marker or anything like that.
00:21:22
It's it's mental.
00:21:23
It's the human element of the gang, and I think like it looks like the game has slowed down for him, see accidentally, and it's also reps.
00:21:33
You know you need reps and you have to be able to put yourself in those pressure situations.
00:21:37
And from his rookie season, we've been making the playoffs right and we've been playing in, but he's played in some big games, ready for a guy.
00:21:44
That's only, I think, what, 23 or 24? Right? And and that's and he's not 19 like data, right? Yeah, and that's Ah, that's rare for a guy who remember he was 1/3 pick in the draft, people who are a top three pick in the draft, They don't get to play in the playoffs right away most of the time because they're going to an awful awful team.
00:22:05
Um, for the most part, there's always teams that make a jump or teams that you make a trade to get that top three pick or what have you? But for the most part, like those guys gotta wait a couple of years to play in the playoffs.
00:22:17
She's got a couple of runs under him.
00:22:19
He's he's been on teams that have won.
00:22:21
Siri's Ah, a lot of guys that age with that skill set and like that pedigree, have not had that.
00:22:30
So it's just another another piece of the puzzle when it comes Teoh these guys developing into s****om because when that when the team was making those runs, they really weren't supposed to like three year they the first year they went to the playoffs, the first year they had Isaiah, that team was gonna That team was expected to be like that.
00:22:57
Lasted league, are fighting for that spot, and they ended up making the playoffs and they were really a year ahead of schedule every year after that, I think you even, like, name the our fantasy basketball league like it's always like crust for cross, for 17 across for 18 Yeah, and this Ah, I think that one was like cross for Okafor.
00:23:19
Yeah, no drive drive for Okafor because it's like years ago, it was Dr for 17.
00:23:28
Now what's your drive for 18.
00:23:31
But I signed into the week that year.
00:23:34
It's like Dr for Okafor like Okay, this is where we are that you may run ups.
00:23:39
I don't know if I can say that on this platform.
00:23:41
I want you to look into that, but like that team made the playoffs, and now every single year after that, they've over achieved maybe not, according to the team that they had it at the time, but they over, according to the team that they should have had in the original projected plan.
00:23:58
Like when they shipped off everybody to Brooklyn and got Brooklyn's entire future, which we're seeing.
00:24:04
Both teams are showing the effects of tonight, so But I was gonna say I think that off.
00:24:18
Yeah, that that that that was a heist.
00:24:22
We got Zieler, Brown and James in the long side we got on.
00:24:34
It's not a long something like in connection.
00:24:36
We got Campbell from it because they had carried to do with it, so, right, Yeah, there.
00:24:42
If you want to do like that the trade train, the trade family, there's a link somewhere there.
00:24:47
Yeah, and you're not to get too far off off topic with a different sport.
00:24:51
But like, um, if you follow the the Bruins Joe Thornton trade, you won't get, like everything that they got from the fruits of that trade.
00:25:00
Like they got the money to San Shara and Savard and they got Farrant.
00:25:03
And, like, they got like, ah, whole bunch of stuff that they want the Stanley Cup with fur trading EVP for nothing, which was kind of weird, but, uh, so it's that's always fun to look at cause you know you can evaluate to trade when it happens.
00:25:17
But you know, you don't know until three years later.
00:25:20
Five years later, 10 years later, how would you know what the Bruins when it was 10 years later? We're finally looking at everything they got and all those fires playing out their career.
00:25:29
Is that some of them being shorter than L A? Um, I could say I could say pretty confidently that will be.
00:25:36
See it the fruits of that trade.
00:25:40
Ac***ulate with Jalen potato for hopefully at least 10 years.
00:25:47
Yeah, give me 10.
00:25:48
More like, Really, And that's not a pipe dream, cause, like those who guys, they're already here.
00:25:55
They're playing together and pick up either around them.
00:25:58
They got their coach, Do you think? I mean, you never know with coaches, but like the building grounds, the building blocks are here.
00:26:08
Yes, it'll and it seems like they're both likable around the league, like guys seem like.
00:26:13
Like they can get that third guy When, when Hayward's on which I'll go out on a limb and say that Donovan Mitchell will eventually play with disease because of just I seen how close their relationship wasn't Team USA over the summer.
00:26:32
And, like ST Tatum and Mitchell there in the All Star Game, they seem like, you know, they were very cozy together.
00:26:39
So Mitchell and Goldberg isn't really a great situation.
00:26:42
And who knows what you know what? That franchise is gonna pick because I think once they lose in the playoffs and Mitchell's timeless clothes, if they make a commitment to go bare, I don't see how Mitchell the only way you could stay without it's gonna be whichever guys going to commit to them because it's Utah like it's hard to get guys to stay there, stopped in the Malone did and, like everybody else, has laughed like.
00:27:12
But that was even in Stockton.
00:27:14
Malone was like, You know, you know, the free agency rules were way different, and, oh, absolutely guys are basically once you drafted up by a team like it was rare for juice leaf.
00:27:24
Right? So now it's like who I could see Mitchell leading complete Oh, absolutely, like the way that is.
00:27:35
The lead works overall, like these guys generally leave, you know, they're all team enough.
00:27:40
They all know each other like since they were kids, they evolve noting jumping.
00:27:43
And that wasn't the case in the past generation.
00:27:45
So they didn't like each other if they didn't know, right? Yeah.
00:27:51
Oh! Oh, yeah, Sorry I got the sound off.
00:27:57
So, like, Yeah, yeah.
00:28:00
Oh, I see what you mean.
00:28:01
Yeah, Guns, man, I said this in a life pod to like, I'm not a guy to complain about the rafts, But my God, the Celtics have got the short end of it since they got into the bubble.
00:28:12
Yeah, they really I mean, smart following out of the third quarter.
00:28:16
Really? Yeah.
00:28:18
It's with eight files.
00:28:19
That was Yeah, go figure.
00:28:21
Marcus Smart says some junk about the rafts in post game.
00:28:24
And then suddenly he's fouled out in the third quarter.
00:28:26
Like they definitely that's That's N b a basketball, you know, with everything we love about it, like there's still that stuff.
00:28:35
And there's still guys like Eddie Rush who will never make a call against the home team, which any ****ing risk.
00:28:44
That's I think of really interesting piece of the bubble.
00:28:51
There are no home games.
00:28:52
Obviously, we know that this is a home crowd, which means there's no home officiating now, I'm not saying that these raps are doing it on purpose.
00:29:02
But there are officials and there's actually sites for gambling purposes for entertainment purposes only where you can see the statistics on these officials and their biases towards home in a way.
00:29:16
And there are referees who have a significant fall towards home teams and they roughed into the playoffs.
00:29:24
So I think that could potentially set it up for maybe a few more upsets because the home teams aren't going to get those close calls or those loose ball call fouls that they would typically get.
00:29:37
When it's just human nature for these refs to get really influenced by guests, the crowd of the madness of some of these buildings, you just get stuck up in the moment.
00:29:50
It's not gonna happen here.
00:29:54
Yeah, and that's like you see, like guys getting.
00:29:58
I think Tatum got a tech, he said, and he said he was talking to himself, and a lot of people, like I think I'm no foods.
00:30:05
Jalen Rose, one of these guys said, like he wouldn't have gotten that second.
00:30:09
There was a crowd of the building right, cause he wouldn't wouldn't available here right no self said some **** in the rest only really didn't even really hear it Right now.
00:30:16
It's like they're gonna hear everything.
00:30:19
And, you know, I'm surprised that, like, I don't know if you viewers watch the Milwaukee Brooklyn game yesterday like watching pieces of it like I I should have been doing my day job, but I was watching pieces of it.
00:30:31
Yeah, Robin Lopez complains more than anyone I've ever seen.
00:30:36
And he likes stocks, the refs.
00:30:37
And I'm like, how is this dude not getting a technical And like Tatum gets attacked for mumbling some **** to himself like right and thank Gordon got the attack when he got called for an offensive foul.
00:30:48
That was not an offensive foul.
00:30:50
Yeah, you did kind of earn that tech because, I mean, he was including animated like That's more so a bad play by Gordon like, and that's that's an issue that actually I wanted to bring up with just the team as a whole because, like even before the bubble, like every team, no matter who you are, you have issues.
00:31:13
What, you guys don't get the calls, they just don't go your way.
00:31:16
Randomness Aban flow home away, you name it.
00:31:19
This is always just just some games where it's not your night with the with the calls and this team.
00:31:26
Let's that bottle of them more than most teams.
00:31:28
I think Stevens did make a comment of it that pre game today, and he just made it like a point to mention that, you know, the we just got to control what we can control was like, and that's that's that.
00:31:42
That's a knock on the team like you're letting relating the refs affect how you play.
00:31:47
And you know you can't You can't do that because because the refs, they're gonna be the rest regardless, like there's gonna be games where you get the cause is going to games where you don't get the calls.
00:31:58
But like, you know, just got it.
00:32:01
Control what you can control.
00:32:02
If you don't get the call, just go back on C like you know, what's he gonna do, right? And the one that really sticks out to me in uh in the last couple of games since they've been in Orlando was the goaltending call that wasn't against Milwaukee in the first game.
00:32:20
I think it was Hayward and, like, he background a mid range jumper, and the honest and Lopez were both under the basket, so I can't remember which one actually went up and got it.
00:32:28
But someone went up and pulled it right out of the cellar, and it was clear as day that it should have been goaltending and they didn't call it and, like three guys on a team turned around and threw their arms out to the raft like you would see, like at the wire And, like, you know, like, I can't even I can't even think of the name like, you know, like it like a kid's league.
00:32:47
Yeah, stuff that you just can't do on the pros.
00:32:50
And it can even lucky a chance in, ah, in transition.
00:32:54
And I can't remember if they scored.
00:32:56
But if you have the opportunity, gave them numbers going down the court in a game that you had a fight like hell to get back into, and it just Ah, you can't do that.
00:33:09
And in a in the playoffs, when all of these games are a lot of these Ian's gonna come down to No wonder true possessions you can you give one away because you didn't like the call, like, all right, you got screwed. You lost the possession.
00:33:23
What's not turning into two lost possessions? Yeah.
00:33:28
I mean, they're doing a good job of not letting to doing a good job tonight.
00:33:33
At least 20 at the half.
00:33:35
Yeah.
00:33:37
Um how's around? Oh, yeah.
00:33:40
Top two plus minus is today Gordon Hayward.
00:33:42
I plus 22 gets Whose second? Um, Romania.
00:33:48
Langford room.
00:33:49
Your length plus 21 Achieved.
00:33:51
I looked it up.
00:33:53
He's only played 13 minutes.
00:33:55
Yeah, and, um, I that's great to see my mea dot com box score keeps on refreshing and moving all of my stuff that I have sorted.
00:34:05
But, um, just did it again and all right, So yeah, Romeo's played 13 minutes and here's kind of my concern with him.
00:34:14
He's a He was a great defender.
00:34:17
He looks like a lock down defender like already in the week.
00:34:20
And but tonight, 13 minutes, one for three from the field.
00:34:26
He's got four point means he is not showing much of anything on the offense event, so that alone is fine, and I think he will get there because I think he's going to be a really good player.
00:34:40
He's got a tonic potential and really, this is a lost season for him because he's missed so much time where he could have you have been getting some some minutes in games, whether it's garbage timer, um, filling in for injuries or what have you like? He could be so much better right now if he had just had the chance to play.
00:34:58
So I'm not counting amount by any means.
00:35:00
But right now for this season, like he's a specialist, he's a guy who's gonna come in and hopefully get get a stop or slow a run down or something like that.
00:35:09
He's You can't rely on him to score and that stuff because he was their top draft pick in this past draft.
00:35:18
They're a team that showed on the banks.
00:35:19
We already talked about a little bit earlier, and they just don't have that scoring punch off the bank.
00:35:23
So, uh, I don't know if I want to say I'm not discouraged by his progression, but like we got a guest, understand, like for this season, like it is what it is with Romeo, like he's a defensive stopper.
00:35:38
And he's he's not going to contribute much on the on the offensive end because the game is just not polished.
00:35:45
Especially like at the N B A level.
00:35:47
Oh, we're gonna have to wait, I think, until next year to see see that out of him, would you? Little off topic since we're going up at the half.
00:35:58
But what do you think about Kendrick Perkins, the ****yst? Did you think if this was 2000 and nine and I was and I was to look at the whole something rust and I would say out of all these guys, Kendrick Perkins is gonna be the one that's gonna be the biggest sports media have personality out of all these guys? Wow, not a chance.
00:36:19
I never heard him say a word when he was Scalia on that team.
00:36:24
You know, not because I'm so bad with numbers of years, but like, I would have picked scout because, like, you can see Scala's personality, he lights up the room every time he walks in.
00:36:34
So, like, you know, like that new is going to be in the media.
00:36:36
Uh, Perkins like God, no, it gets have that angry scowl.
00:36:41
And he, just like he has destroyed people like, is like they had a defensive tackle playing basketball for them, and they somehow, somehow the league allowed it and to see, like the personality come out and and yeah, he says Aton of stupid stuff.
00:36:55
But like, he's got this meeting, the game kind of figured out in a said that he says it with conviction.
00:37:03
And if you disagree with him, it's the ****ing West thing ever, right? No, right when you see a big guy like that scowling get Oh, yeah, I okay, maybe, Yeah, it's like I get it like he says Stupid stuff.
00:37:20
And I'm even at the point where, like, I know that he doesn't believe everything he says he can't like.
00:37:27
He he knows too much about the game to say some of the stuff that he says.
00:37:31
But you see the success of guys like Nick, right? And guys like Skip Bayliss who just say the stupid **** comment calling Cowherd is another one like they don't believe this stuff.
00:37:44
They're playing characters, their characters on TV, they're borderline actors.
00:37:50
But if they say something stupid, people retweet their video and say, Hey, look at this idiot.
00:37:55
And then when you click on that video, you get that five second ad first and now they have add revenue.
00:37:59
So if someone broke down, you know the perfect pick and roll.
00:38:04
And I told you why someone scored on this basket.
00:38:07
Nobody's watching that video.
00:38:08
But if somebody says, Hey, Michael Jordan would score 15 points a game in today's MBA because bigger, stronger, faster.
00:38:14
Everyone's gonna click on that e.
00:38:17
I hope somewhere trips out just that part of you, but not but nothing After that.
00:38:24
Let's go 15 points a game Because of you, it's biggest.
00:38:28
You might go for it.
00:38:29
I retweeted Rifugio.
00:38:35
Yeah, yeah, just make sure you kind of the because the if is a big part.
00:38:41
But which one gets more hits? And these guys all have figured out because like it's a business, it's not.
00:38:47
No, it's not educational.
00:38:50
Um, sure, there's always stuff to be learned from watching these shows or listening to these shows, but it's entertainment and a business first and foremost and like hurt women that really fast? Yeah.
00:39:03
You got the blooper. Yeah.
00:39:05
Yeah, he's got it figured out.
00:39:06
So He's just like sitting on a pile of money right now.
00:39:11
I'm sure that's a little uncomfortable because it's not really all that soft.
00:39:14
But he was sitting on a pile of cash and it's just like, what can I say tomorrow to get a pile of cash? He's waited for one of these.
00:39:23
Would major guys contract to run out so he could get that because he's a he's jumping around everywhere.
00:39:31
I see him on every platform he's on seen on ESPN.
00:39:34
He's been on Fox before.
00:39:36
He comes on the local NBC sports all the time, so he's everywhere, so you have basically free.
00:39:43
He's a few, is a free agent, just thinking of anything, Get so whenever it's time for a contract, someone like Kelemen might be up for anybody.
00:39:54
I don't know if he's getting that, because right now he's like he's a basketball specialist and okay, he's got a lot of work to Dio.
00:40:02
Before we become like someone who does multiple sports, you become like a jack of all trades kind of guy.
00:40:11
Stephen A. Smith.
00:40:12
Although Stephen A.
00:40:13
Smith wasn't a player, so it's a little different.
00:40:14
Stephen A.
00:40:15
Smith was a basketball guy forever and Box Calendar was a boxing guy.
00:40:19
And he is still when people don't even really know this because I just seeing him as like the guy who's always Stephen A Smith talking about all of this random stuff.
00:40:26
But he is one of the great boxing ****ysts in the world, like he was unbelievable with boxing, so it's got some time before he jumps into one of those roles.
00:40:37
But, like, I wouldn't be shocked if we saw him on like A T and T show or something like that or some sort of the other three in show.
00:40:48
He's gonna get a really good gig, and he's already getting some good gigs.
00:40:52
And, oh, I don't I off a lot of people him to where he hates Park because they take his stuff too seriously.
00:41:01
Like it.
00:41:02
That's what they want, that Yeah, and like I enjoy it because like, he's gonna be.
00:41:08
He's got that big personality.
00:41:09
He's, you know, he's an entertaining guy.
00:41:11
He helped us win a championship, which, you know, God bless your work.
00:41:17
You know, I always make a point to not take the stuff too seriously, and I try to carry that, like into our show to, like, you know, I'm not going to be the guy who gets mad because someone disagrees with me on an opinion on a play, right? More so, just like that, it's a game.
00:41:37
Let's enjoy it.
00:41:38
Let's have fun because you throw the headphones, right? Yeah, I feel the headphones through the screen.
00:41:46
Um, my TV that I have tilted over a little bit so I could watch it with my sweet, little stupid here background.
00:41:52
I got going to my two favorite Celtics player.
00:41:55
There's a wall time, um, and you know, maybe knock that TV off because it's a little bit.
00:41:59
It's not quite teetering, but it's, like, not all the way on the bureau either.
00:42:04
So fingers crossed that, you know, it makes it to the end of this game what we're doing.
00:42:10
Okay.
00:42:11
I think I like the cat out.
00:42:12
So you do you know all those up again? What do you know that Olu is up again in the draft kings.
00:42:20
Uh, I mean, it doesn't surprise me because he's up 18 but he has no more guys left.
00:42:25
So someone's gonna be no.
00:42:27
Then my cell in dead last cause.
00:42:28
Like, I got everybody who saw that you won't. 72.
00:42:33
Okay, We'll have better than the 1 11 we have.
00:42:35
What? We went on the air, so I'm in fifth, but loose.
00:42:38
Officially had 31 to me.
00:42:41
Oh, who I got, like, 20 and it out.
00:42:42
Anthony Davis wanting to out of and seven.
00:42:45
You had seconds to allow.
00:42:46
So, yeah, Simmons Porter.
00:42:48
I had Porter Porter gonna be 53.
00:42:53
I had I had hot Kimora who I texted you in the fourth quarter and was like, He's having a Dante Cunningham game.
00:43:00
And, you know, if you don't follow our pot, I'll throw up Dante Cunningham's name every once in a while because he's Yeah, I had Goose.
00:43:08
She's been playing what they like.
00:43:10
He socks, right? No, that I think the numbers like he's not.
00:43:14
I know he's not that good.
00:43:16
I don't like him.
00:43:17
A supplier like he's used just an adequate player who's got so much **** hype around them that it makes me think he sucks, right? But like, he's been putting up some okay numbers for the cost, and it's like, ****, he was single digits tonight wasn't he? It's not a big deal.
00:43:34
Like he he hurt me.
00:43:36
Let's just say that he 10 points.
00:43:38
Three boards, two threes.
00:43:40
Okay, So he did better than the last time I checked.
00:43:42
Like I was just so far behind him, like, All right, let's just check tomorrow because it's but yeah, so god****, I don't even know what the hell I was talking about.
00:43:52
I lost it. Yeah.
00:43:54
I mean, still still have time, I think the next commercial, the last one.
00:43:59
All right.
00:44:00
Oh, I think they took a point off the seas because now it's only a 19 point lead.
00:44:05
Still, you know what it was that they get Dad Hayward for three, and they must have took it out.
00:44:11
Does know what? He has one.
00:44:16
And, uh, I want to see how many.
00:44:18
How much How much minutes? The starters they're gonna get in the second half of Tatum o me at six minutes. Three files.
00:44:25
Yeah, he got he picked up two real fast ls before.
00:44:30
Yeah, before That was before we even know.
00:44:32
Actually really jumped on for the start of the second quarter.
00:44:34
So he him picked up to in the first couple of minutes of the game, and it was just one of those things where I'm like, oh, crap or they're gonna let this get away from him again.
00:44:43
Um, just because we know that Campbell was out and you know what? Take them having Teoh Probably take short minutes.
00:44:51
You're like, Well, Brooklyn's not good.
00:44:53
They're missing some of their top guys.
00:44:55
Like for the entire obviously know Katie.
00:44:57
No, no, Kyrie also know Dinwiddie.
00:45:00
But, um, you know, there's there's a couple of players on that team and if they play like they did last night on the perimeter, like Joe Harris, we're gonna like them up like Duncan Robinson did.
00:45:09
So the first couple of minutes, I was like, Oh, crap like, are they going to let this get away? And then now we're suddenly not so locked into that three spot.
00:45:18
But, uh, you know, now they're looking at, like they're at a point where they can kind of coast and you don't want to get to care.
00:45:25
You too.
00:45:26
Careful here, But you don't want to get too complacent.
00:45:29
Rather, you want to be somewhat careful.
00:45:31
But it's a good time, Teoh, maybe what tinplate play a couple more minutes to stay sharp because he really did need it because he struggled at the start of this reboot.
00:45:44
But like it's a good time to give.
00:45:46
Hey wouldn't extend addressed and maybe give Jalen a little bit of time off.
00:45:50
Market smart.
00:45:51
Got it last night so he can go ahead and employ it quite a few minutes the rest of the way.
00:45:57
You know, C c.
00:45:58
Langford out there may be.
00:45:59
See, s you want to make you get a bunch of minutes.
00:46:01
Used to make Celtics where to go mad.
00:46:03
And I want to see some vigilante because I love watching Devante.
00:46:08
He's just he's just an entertaining player, and I know he's He is what he is, right? He's a He's a bottom of the roster kind of guy, but monomer officer kind of guy who can jump out of the building like that's fun.
00:46:20
I definitely a much about the fan as well.
00:46:23
He's he's an explosive player, and you don't have yeah, and he's probably going to be one of the odd man out next year next year, but I hope they find a way whether to keep him while There are other young guys who are higher potential because he's been kicking around trying to get in the league after college for a few years.
00:46:47
So he's a little within some of these guys and the couple of Turkey's will have coming in next year.
00:46:52
Chill.
00:46:53
I still I hope that he's one of the guys who could stick.
00:46:58
That could be potentially like an Avalanche situation where you know, in the league.
00:47:02
But it just can't be here because we just don't have a squad.
00:47:08
And you know what? That Memphis who knows what we could get out from that.
00:47:11
We get into the lottery pick.
00:47:12
I mean, that's another quality player coming into the team.
00:47:16
I was thinking of this, though, with the players that they have already not even a draft and stash lead do we kind of hope that they hit a lot of wins? It doesn't convey till next year.
00:47:30
It would help.
00:47:31
The roster problem if they want to keep at all of you guys is gonna make the playoffs.
00:47:37
You don't know that the West is pretty watch.
00:47:39
They're still loaded.
00:47:40
Look at Phoenix, right? Phoenix, Portland and Phoenix, like Phoenix, is gonna be a problem next year.
00:47:48
It getting a lot better between Booker and Eaten.
00:47:52
Another presumably good draft pick like that team has been on fire Global.
00:47:58
They have a chance to make the play with a lot of teams.
00:48:00
That what if more than one teams finishes within the four games, it will be the top two with 89 I don't know what happens if they tie.
00:48:11
I don't know what happens if there's a time for nine.
00:48:13
Knicks is making an interest.
00:48:16
Yes, Phoenix is making it really interesting.
00:48:18
Like San Antonio is making an interest in Memphis is making an interesting to buy losing all these games.
00:48:22
So you got it.
00:48:25
And New Orleans is still there, so there are kind of teams who can take.
00:48:30
We're gonna have a claim to this last spot, and it's These teams are gonna fall off the map this year.
00:48:43
Let's see what happens.
00:48:44
Oh, yeah, it up.
00:48:46
Okay.
00:48:51
I was kind of hoping when you said that, that it would be Williams because he probably still be in the Yeah, and missed a dunk.
00:49:02
Maybe I'm being a little luck there on on him, but now that's That's not a heat check. That's a good shot.
00:49:14
OK, there he a screen for an open three in the way that he's been hit.
00:49:20
I'm like, Yeah, you always take that shot.
00:49:22
That's an open three.
00:49:26
Oh, yeah, that's crazy.
00:49:29
That is absolutely crazy.
00:49:31
Like Thais gets nothing.
00:49:35
It's like there's a league wide memo warned around that, like if 27 on the Celtics gets hit, it won't care.
00:49:42
I still can't believe they didn't call that flagrant on at least file on Janice.
00:49:47
Yeah, and got something happened last night to UM oh, they he said the ball.
00:49:54
And he threw it like right off of someone on Miami.
00:49:57
And it went out of Bonds and it clearly hit the baseline.
00:50:01
And then it hits Heights who was laying down out of bounds.
00:50:02
And, of course, they're called out on Tyson.
00:50:04
They had to review it and fix it and fix the call, and then they immediately turned it over.
00:50:09
But like even stuff like that, like anything near Thais like he doesn't get the call.
00:50:17
Ever.
00:50:18
It's even know Paul or it's just I'm getting right like that.
00:50:24
He'll get called for a foul on stuff that nobody.
00:50:26
It feels like nobody else in the league gets called for like and I know that's that's a little bit of hyperbole.
00:50:32
But like this, what I Daniel Tyson gets like, gets no benefit of the doubt from anybody.
00:50:44
Yeah, he doesn't, he doesn't.
00:50:47
And that's been one of that's been one of Danny's best signings.
00:50:51
Think Yeah, it has.
00:50:53
Can came in last year.
00:50:55
And he was just, you know, kind of a body in the back of the roster kind of guy.
00:51:00
And you did more than like Cory did this year.
00:51:05
Yeah, he came at the start of the season.
00:51:07
He was kind of like what party was at the start of this season? I just got that.
00:51:14
They're in better and better, and I camp.
00:51:16
He really, really made a run for the starting job, and we talked about it like in our season preview podcast where, like Thais could start the season as the starter.
00:51:27
And it was at that time still like a pretty big upset that he was going to get that job when you were gonna play some big minutes.
00:51:33
But it like it was a pretty big upset that He was gonna be the guy at the at the center position and he got it.
00:51:40
And then from there he was just got better and better.
00:51:43
Like he's a lot better now than he was in October.
00:51:46
Is that when he seals off the off the pick and roll and you see like, Hey, does it a lot for Hayward? Smart Kemba.
00:51:54
Well, just go ahead of the guard, seal the big off and then all those guys just get a lay it that, like, I think he's best in the league at that.
00:52:03
Like, I don't see too many guys doing doing seal better than him.
00:52:08
Oh, yeah, he's great at it.
00:52:09
I mean, I hesitate to say best in the leaning, but e just thinking so yourself.
00:52:16
This guy, it's all right. No, it's fine.
00:52:18
It's fine. We're something show.
00:52:19
So it's OK, Um, you know, I don't have random team thing.
00:52:22
And behind me, I got to Celtics behind me, and I got a Celtics jersey on now, so way try to see it down the middle, but like it's not always gonna go that way.
00:52:32
Speaking of amazing, he's been amazing, beautiful, amazing and good into because Garden has been the driving kick from Gordon has been so on point.
00:52:50
Yes, he's just He's a great player.
00:52:53
He was what they paid for.
00:52:55
And there's still people out there saying that when she traded him for drumming, which is insane, But time out.
00:53:05
What the hell happened? Oh, they call, OK, because I seem room all the time out. Time out.
00:53:11
And I'm still seeing the Celtics rotate the ball like what happened? Who got hurt like O J J ones down.
00:53:17
But, uh, yeah, so but, man, that was some beautiful bob woman to like.
00:53:24
It's yeah, as a little brown side, like starting to come together.
00:53:29
Uh, eso Hopefully, uh, you know, it's It's not just that they're playing against really, really low competition.
00:53:38
It's the second probably the second best team in the bubble after Washington.
00:53:42
Washington, without Beale and Berrick kinds is just an absolute joke.
00:53:47
Um, it's probably the second worst team who's in here.
00:53:51
They just beat Milwaukee, but they did.
00:53:53
Yeah, but they beat Milwaukee with 16 minutes from the honest and Middleton and that that team is very top heavy, though, and they didn't play their top couple of guys so and your credit to Brooklyn for for fighting through that.
00:54:09
Like, they played really well.
00:54:11
And they, you know, they played hard.
00:54:12
And good things happen when you play that hard.
00:54:14
But, um, you know, they didn't beat the best.
00:54:17
Didn't take Milwaukee's best shot either, but ended they actually they didn't have all of their guys even earlier.
00:54:27
It's 70 at the half.
00:54:29
Yeah, Geo za in ****ing Kerekes and some guy named Martin just their backup point guard.
00:54:36
Like I don't even know these guys, right? Who are these guys? Yes.
00:54:43
Yeah, yeah, that's the one.
00:54:45
Mitchell Friedman, About 1%.
00:54:48
Because only 1% of gonna get that joke off then.
00:54:58
Yeah, yeah, but, um, I'm hoping that it's it's really the Celtics coming together and playing while I'm starting to gel, shaking off the rust as opposed to them.
00:55:11
Just playing a really bad team.
00:55:12
It's probably a bit of both, especially because, like, they're missing come back.
00:55:18
And we saw that, like Kendrick played short minutes and got in the foul trouble.
00:55:23
So, um, but it's everything just looks like it's in sync better than it has for any of their other games.
00:55:34
This sense, they've been back.
00:55:37
It's actually last night.
00:55:38
Last night was just a disaster.
00:55:42
Last night was bad.
00:55:43
That was just just bad basketball.
00:55:46
It was just unpleasant to watch.
00:55:48
Yeah, I mean, the last couple of minutes, just the shot.
00:55:51
So again, we're just like it's going on here.
00:55:54
They started.
00:55:56
They started depressed.
00:55:57
They fell back by a little bit too much at the end, and then they were just like winning.
00:56:00
23 We need a three and they were taken bad threes instead of trying to get you easy to use, which more available, cut on the lead a little bit.
00:56:10
That's hated.
00:56:11
Three is just I mean, I'm watching the local solution a couple of Celtic replays and at Tatum side, Step three, You can't block that.
00:56:20
You just did it in his face like let's all longer.
00:56:25
Yeah, that's a however got to do that in his face.
00:56:27
You to like. That's up.
00:56:29
That's a that's a great that's Ah, yeah, that's a great player that he did that too.
00:56:35
The, uh, the BNP was actually you're showing taco.
00:56:39
So, um, thank you.
00:56:42
He's not just a rock star here.
00:56:46
No, uniform.
00:56:47
No, he's not.
00:56:49
You know, the one thing I do like about the bubble also is the camera guys not being right under the hoop.
00:56:56
Because how many guys you see just sprain their ankles or just fall into the freaking camera guy and, like, hit their head off a camera, right? Yeah, it's It's like and how it gives guys space that it should always be like that.
00:57:10
Yeah, it's It's dangerous for the players.
00:57:12
And it's dangerous for the camera guys, too.
00:57:14
Yeah, right.
00:57:15
Like those guys are happens right there getting bowled over by, like, the largest humans you've ever seen.
00:57:22
Yeah, and now I gotta watch this play.
00:57:25
**** it all Haven't dio thinking stole Daniel? I thought it was gonna be on Alan, but it definitely wasn't on that one.
00:57:37
Well, that's the second time I've seen this market caught back to about Tyler Johnson from Jared Allen.
00:57:42
Oh, that's not good.
00:57:44
Like, come on, markets like you're better than that.
00:57:48
Well, I mean, not voting on all defensive from the bubble, so trilogy Oh, again Another one.
00:57:57
I missed it at a bounce.
00:57:59
No, I thought you give it to his face.
00:58:03
No, I once got that quite.
00:58:05
Bonds, though, doesn't doesn't quite have that yet.
00:58:10
Not they tried again.
00:58:14
Good job. Smart.
00:58:16
Oh, Jesus.
00:58:21
May if they look, if they let me play old albums travel that was you if they would have let me get away with that gathered back when I was playing like some, you know, high competition basketball like, I think I would have been a lot better player.
00:58:38
Yeah, life would have been a lot easier because they're getting away with that extra step in.
00:58:43
Listen, back in the day, you could only take one of those steps.
00:58:48
I think one everyone.
00:58:50
You could not play in a pick up game at the park without eight people calling, traveling right or from the other team and four from the baseline like, What is this now? We don't play like that around, so now that they let guys get away with that extra step, I think it's helped.
00:59:10
It's helped out a lot of a lot of players and just expanded game.
00:59:13
So much more like, I think it's a you know, and I think it's a good thing for basketball.
00:59:19
You want more scared.
00:59:20
I don't I don't hate it, it's Ah, it adds another element to the game and I I still go back and watch old games all the time when we didn't have basketball like all I was watching was like old basketball games not super old, but like stuff that we watched growing up like stuff from the nineties and even that looks a hell of a lot different.
00:59:39
I want a few things from like the seven easiest cause we did the Mount Rushmore project, so I had to watch like or me diet were in.
00:59:48
If you told me in January that I was going to be watching film on Jacque segment so I could do a podcast about him.
00:59:53
I don't know what I would have said to you, but I would not have said I believe you.
00:59:59
So I was watching himself the like to talk about like some of those guys that we were talking about, and it's it's good fun to watch, but it's it's almost a different sport.
01:00:13
Yeah, it is.
01:00:14
It definitely is.
01:00:15
I mean, you know, I don't what you want to say, that the guys are more athletic because I don't think they really that much more athletic than they were back then.
01:00:22
But I just think it's everyone's so much more skilled in like yes, you know, skilled and especially in their rules.
01:00:32
Like I think more guys back then, it might have been more all around skills.
01:00:36
The guys now like they'll find their role, and that's what they'll get. Hammer.
01:00:41
Yeah, you guys become sharpshooters.
01:00:44
So, like, all right, this guy's like, you know it as the passing point guard with, you know, really good handle, and that's what he'll be.
01:00:51
He's ****ing that you can't take the ball from them like a lot more guys like that.
01:00:55
But and the soup, like the guys that are like, you know, I think Fred VanVleet is a perfect example of a guy that just I think you're seeing more guys, like get better sooner than you did back in the day that I got back in the day.
01:01:11
Then it was also like, you know, some guy will leave and all right, this is your opportunity with Van Fleet.
01:01:17
He kind of was making that jump last year while I was still there.
01:01:21
And this year him and see how come just seemed like they took, You know, they're taking jumps that I remember seeing you know, back in the day, Too much.
01:01:31
Yeah.
01:01:32
What I think part of the reason for that that was We remember guys back and back.
01:01:38
And when we say back in the day, we think, like, you know, the nineties for the most part, when we were kids watching the game, learning the gas and player state in college longer.
01:01:47
So you know, a You have guys like Jerry Stackhouse came into the league and averaged 20 points right away.
01:01:54
And he wasn't rookie of the year.
01:01:57
He came out after his union year, so he made that jump in college, right? And then he comes to the pros and he's ready to play.
01:02:05
Kevin Garnett made that jump because Garnett came straight from high school, and I think he only averaged 10 in his closet.
01:02:14
Smart.
01:02:15
Oh, that's that is in charge.
01:02:19
Are you kidding me? They didn't show the replay on local.
01:02:22
They kind of just went to the time out to me.
01:02:25
Looked like he was there.
01:02:26
It looked like he was outside and they went right to commercial on National to he that looked 100% like a charge.
01:02:34
We will see that he he was shuffling his feet when they showed the replay.
01:02:37
But, like instinctively, that looked like a charge.
01:02:40
But if you want stuff with that guy on the Nets looked like he was a little bit out of control anyway.
01:02:46
So I don't think it's really maybe maybe, maybe it's a NBA two k rules, and there are no charges called Ever ive still yet to see one.
01:02:56
This Stephen Yeah, once you mentioned it to me, I'm like, ****! Like I played my whole I think I played like 35 games in my franchise and I don't remember seeing one.
01:03:10
I've seen a couple of moving screens and a couple of loose ball fouls, like on the offensive team after it got and and that's it.
01:03:17
I've never seen a charge called for me or against me, but like I was saying about Garnett, Garnett made that jump because he came into the league of the rookie and her out right out of high school.
01:03:29
And I think he averaged 10 points a game his rookie year.
01:03:33
And then he made that jump.
01:03:35
You know a year later, two years later, Um, actually, really, both.
01:03:40
And, uh, I took him a little bit more time to become a superstar.
01:03:44
Jermaine O'Neal did the same thing because he came out of high school.
01:03:46
But we used to see a lot of guys a lot more.
01:03:49
Rookies make impact making impact right away because they were more polished.
01:03:54
They were older.
01:03:56
They were bigger, stronger.
01:03:57
They grew into their bodies who never heard of a guy getting drafted and then hearing like, Oh, well, he's gonna grow a couple more inches.
01:04:07
Yeah, because these guys were all getting drafted at 2122 years old.
01:04:11
It wasn't like he honest when they're like, Yeah, he's he's a freak of nature.
01:04:14
He's, Ah, you know Ah, crazy, ridiculous athlete like none we've ever seen.
01:04:18
And, oh, by the way, she's probably getting a bigger and he did, like, you don't see that, and I think I mentioned to see before, but I've been a proponent of guys getting I do think guys, it's still coming in the league too early.
01:04:33
Not just that they're not that this skills aren't ready.
01:04:35
I just think their bodies are ready, especially at that age where you haven't experience in NBC's in the grind of the travel, the constant, the constant travel like the constant games like You're playing 82 games, where the most you played in the season of any kind of organized Bowlby like 40 and the same time.
01:04:54
It's like you're putting a lot of words and how you got these kids, though, who are playing like they're playing high school ball in and they're playing for travel teams and they're playing in multiple leagues.
01:05:05
It's totally different.
01:05:07
100.
01:05:08
It's right.
01:05:09
And that's the big difference is you're going against grown men who have been, you know, they're one job is to work on their body No.
01:05:18
8 to 12 hours a day.
01:05:20
And you got kids essentially that the kids coming into the league office robbery what, six months off that you know, lifting like that for six months and I send and they keep themselves in shape and training training hard.
01:05:37
But there's only limited time that you can put into it, and in college and high schooler, where you're coming from it, that's taking your career.
01:05:45
So like I've always been a proponent of teams being able to draft a guy.
01:05:50
But you know them taking over, whether it's paying the player or taking over the scholarship or doing whatever.
01:05:57
Just have the rights to the player.
01:05:59
But let him develop still in college, you know, and get that.
01:06:04
You know, hockey does not.
01:06:06
Yeah, and I love that rule because it just gives guys a chance to let their bodies developed.
01:06:11
But already having that security where you're with the team, you're not, you know, saying you're good.
01:06:17
You don't have to worry about impressing draft scouts or anything like right, this got you, and then any time you know, if they feel it's ready, they'll pull.
01:06:24
You know they'll take you, but yeah, we'll bring it to the team.
01:06:28
But with hockey, we're talking.
01:06:31
They're not paying them, are taking their contracts or anything.
01:06:33
They're just they're not signing.
01:06:35
It's been a real until a particular time, and I'm not sure exactly how it works.
01:06:42
Like the noble baseball, you can go into the professional ranks minor leagues first, right after high school.
01:06:53
But if you don't and you go to college, you have to stay in college for three years.
01:06:56
I don't remember what the rule is for hockey if they have to stay for three years or anything like that.
01:07:01
But, like freshmen get drafted all the time and then they go back to college in the play.
01:07:05
Yeah, right, Right.
01:07:07
So I think, you know, and you see any with guys like for, like, even guys we're seeing, Like Marvin Bagley, Jonathan, Isaac, guys that are supremely skilled there, definitely.
01:07:18
You've got the skills to play in this league, but just that their bodies don't seem that, you know, I'm ready for it, right? You know, that's how that's how you get.
01:07:29
The better players in the league is this. They develop.
01:07:32
And if you know you're rushing even like you're telling me, like a guy like Romeo length for you couldn't have used in the year two in college, like the Polish like absolutely.
01:07:40
But the way it turned out is like it was injury issues with him so he wouldn't play anyway.
01:07:47
So it But he was He was injured in his freshman year of college.
01:07:51
He got drafted freshman year.
01:07:53
He wouldn't have, you know, he wouldn't have felt like he needed to play through that injury, right? You played from the through the injury for basically from his first month.
01:08:01
So the end of the college, it and then at that effect, that basically made his his rookie season hair a wash because he actually needed to recover from the injury.
01:08:11
Um, so I think it would definitely help, But what? We up 28.
01:08:18
Oh, yeah.
01:08:19
We needed a game like this.
01:08:21
Yeah.
01:08:22
Ah, game where they can just coast not worry about anything down the stretch rest some guys, cause yeah, they just had a ton of time off.
01:08:28
But you're playing a lot of games in a really short period of time.
01:08:32
So, yeah, so you can if you're top guys like we, doctor, about a little bit earlier.
01:08:41
I give you top guys a little bit of a break here and just cut their minutes a little bit.
01:08:45
And let's get a look at these kids.
01:08:49
I also much at the same time, though, like, I still think we need to work out some back into basketball shape like it spend the four months off and told me to of those months, these dudes didn't really do anything.
01:09:02
If they didn't have equipment in their house like they want.
01:09:06
You know, I'm sure like they were keeping a shape, but not basketball, right? Like freedom.
01:09:12
Didn't have a group at his house and way kind of laughed it off.
01:09:16
I got high.
01:09:17
I didn't have a rupees.
01:09:18
You get who? You know what? Pro doesn't have a hope.
01:09:20
Uh oh.
01:09:21
He'll be.
01:09:22
He'll be fine.
01:09:23
He's Jayson Tatum.
01:09:24
When we were about that, he comes back and he was terrible And, like, four games, like screaming, unstable, right? And wasn't good and knows he wasn't good against Milwaukee.
01:09:36
And then it was at the 0.
01:09:37
1 game where you started playing Well, yeah.
01:09:41
Yeah.
01:09:43
So it took him a little while to get back into it.
01:09:46
Send. And that's really the case.
01:09:48
But with a lot of these guys across the league, which is, I think, potentially reason why was he in some really weird results here, like, Oh, yeah.
01:09:55
Scenic speeding, speeding up the clippers? Yep.
01:09:59
Obviously, yesterday I think it was the 3rd 3rd block by block. There we go.
01:10:05
Yeah, show a little something.
01:10:06
I'll go in.
01:10:07
No, not even close.
01:10:09
They didn't have the two K animation where it automatically gets through him, though I know I did mix the hoop yesterday on on a last minute shock.
01:10:15
So he was the first time I had ever seen that Karim from, like, 90%. Quite.
01:10:24
You gotta miss something.
01:10:25
Yeah, it like Mr Backboard and everything. I think it curved.
01:10:28
It looked like it curved. It was weird.
01:10:32
Maybe we should do this more so that's something.
01:10:34
Schooling by 30 right? Yeah.
01:10:38
Yeah.
01:10:39
And we're supposed to be talking about the game, but my team B is, like, over here, so I can't do this and watch that.
01:10:48
So, like, I've been kind of renewable show are really are normal show It has been a little different, but just like having a conversation about whatever comes along.
01:10:57
And I haven't seen a ton on the game, so I'm It may be a little unprepared for expired, but that zangbo so I'm not gonna initiate the task.
01:11:13
Section five heads if they want to record tonight a little much.
01:11:19
Well, I don't want Teoh.
01:11:22
We've been on here for an hour and a woman minutes, and, um I guess that no, I don't want to do it. What? We could do it tomorrow.
01:11:29
Like this game saddle.
01:11:30
Um, it's not over yet, either.
01:11:33
Well, like the game will have to be over for us to be able to talk about it fully.
01:11:37
Because some of the interesting stuff behind the scenes here, some really interesting stuff would being how these rookies Billy in the fourth quarter, because they're going to play.
01:11:47
So we're gonna want to talk about, you know, whether it's Williams or Romeo are Trey wanted to What is probably dressed for the game, right? Oh, thanks.
01:11:57
So I think, especially with with Kemba.
01:12:01
Not so I don't know.
01:12:06
I'm getting some no trade.
01:12:08
Trey is actually not listed here on the N b, a dot com site and this grand Williams and you want a green have not played a minute tonight.
01:12:16
So, um, sorry, Actually, Looks like he's he's not dressed.
01:12:21
Um, you know, grantee at Granton.
01:12:23
Geronzi.
01:12:24
Yeah.
01:12:25
So let's see some of them I want to see drink is, uh, grants.
01:12:31
Not really producing on the offensive end.
01:12:33
He was doing a lot of the little things.
01:12:34
He's kind of that that grit and grind kind of guy, and he's done a lot of good things in in a limited working in his first year.
01:12:42
But, uh, yeah, he could definitely benefit from having some offensive touches.
01:12:47
And he showed a little bit of that against Houston in the last scrimmage game, where he had a nice little turnaround jumper and you made a couple of shots that we didn't know he had in the bag.
01:12:56
But, uh, we could definitely benefit a lot because he was a guy who I think with his strength, toughness and defensive skill set like I think what? We're going to see him a little bit in the playoffs.
01:13:07
So you don't want to have someone coming in who is just a total liability on the offensive end.
01:13:13
So even if it's just a few reps in real games being real action, I won't see it.
01:13:19
Let's get him a few touches.
01:13:21
Yeah, I mean, now we're gonna hopefully we're gonna see it.
01:13:24
I was looking at some incoming texts from our draftkings leak and as of now, all those up five points.
01:13:33
But Meg's has Jaylen Brown.
01:13:36
Oh, it is gonna stay.
01:13:39
And who else is Jalen Brown's left? I have Jared Allen but I'm down 21.
01:13:49
So Jared Allen might not play smart out there.
01:13:54
Actually, semi smart Williams Romeo, according Gooden's throughout their smart I get cause he got from time off last night.
01:14:07
Did not playing defense because let us have a nice easy market for Bob again.
01:14:16
That's that's one thing that he came and give you use.
01:14:21
It was still and we really shouldn't be calling him wa in your through for him, right? U s o were still shouldn't be calling him right at this point.
01:14:32
But the fact is, he is still a raw player, and but he couldn't.
01:14:40
You could give you that that alley on the love that he just gave you end, you can give you that.
01:14:47
And a lot of other nobody else on the team really can.
01:14:49
So it does add an element, and they are going over the top to him there.
01:14:54
And there's a nice little finish like he's Ah, yeah, we can give you some of that like you trust him in the playoffs.
01:15:03
No, no, no. Absolutely not.
01:15:07
I don't trust him in the regular season either, and neither does Brad like he hasn't played and It's for a reason.
01:15:14
Oh, you know, he's He's got, like, slightly more trust than Taco in my book.
01:15:19
Like and I don't want taco anywhere near the playoffs.
01:15:24
New near a playoff game.
01:15:29
Why, there's maybe the time in a place for Williams in a certain situation.
01:15:35
And we saw him actually last night.
01:15:38
He got his first action of the games that counted in Orlando last night at the end.
01:15:44
He only got a few seconds thinking, but less than a minute.
01:15:46
But he was guarding an inbound pass, and he was just like, jumping up and down, making it difficult.
01:15:51
And I haven't seen it this season A lot, really, because when he then up with the Celtics, he's been inactive for the most part.
01:16:01
But I want to see Taco Fall doing that.
01:16:04
If you've got the room on the roster to do it and you want to make that imam past difficult, throw Chako right there.
01:16:10
Good luck.
01:16:11
Throw it over this guy and then get him the hell out of there right after that, which is essentially what they did with Williams.
01:16:19
I just want to see, like, a little bit of that, like some creative stuff, something that might just throw a team off and maybe make someone panic and throw it away or call a time out and burning time out. Then get talk.
01:16:28
A lot of their, um, give them that look.
01:16:31
But to do about, you got a bone, a roster spot on him because you've got the extra bodies.
01:16:38
But they're not all active for the games, so that's kind of where that doesn't really fit.
01:16:43
But it's It's something that, like I have been kind of hoping to see and in a regular season game in at least our plant, that Steve with somebody put on tape so that when teams scouting you and say, Hey, we might have to look for this, we might have to prepare for it And then, you know, maybe it's there.
01:17:01
Maybe it's not.
01:17:03
But I did like seeing Williams doing it because it was the best option they had at that, because he's just jumping up and down as high as he can.
01:17:09
Try and check this, not even get the ball, but just like make the past difficulty, you know, hopefully force a turnover on uh because they're like, Oh, crap and 1/2 seconds on it, and I just got a Harkin it all right, But I want to see something on the offensive end out of Romeo.
01:17:32
Nice little shot, though.
01:17:35
What is really still at Romeo still only got four points in 22 minutes in an absolute blowout game.
01:17:43
Um, you know, and and I just goes to like what I was saying earlier about him.
01:17:51
He's a defensive specialist at this stage in his career, and I think he will be better.
01:17:58
And I think he's gonna have a lot of room to grow.
01:18:01
But for this season, you're not getting too many points out of him.
01:18:07
Williams is really going to the ramp.
01:18:10
Roll it today.
01:18:12
Yeah, he's playing really well.
01:18:13
This is probably this is the best I've seen.
01:18:16
What do you think? Probably the best it's it is that the best is the best in a long time.
01:18:22
Yeah, and I mean, on the statute, it's probably gonna be the mast.
01:18:25
Anyway, He definitely has has at least two blocks that seem just a couple of it.
01:18:35
Yeah, he's got he's got three blocks.
01:18:38
He was five and he's got 15 points nice.
01:18:42
He was six for six from the field in three for three from the line.
01:18:45
So we want to see Yeah.
01:18:48
Yeah, you this.
01:18:49
And granted, this is against the second worst team in the bubbles backups.
01:18:53
So, like, don't take this as you know, all the Williams supporters out.
01:18:58
They don't take this as like and I told you so, Like, See, I told you he should be getting more minutes, but, like, take it as a positive silently here is showing a little something and gives them something to build on.
01:19:10
And hopefully we can get a chance.
01:19:13
Maybe in a game that doesn't really mean anything.
01:19:16
Later on, when they get officially locked into their spot, we can see you know, he was specifically, especially after a game like this, get some time against some better competition against maybe some starters, and let's see if you can do it again.
01:19:30
And then if you can Now we might have maybe a specialist or a change of pace.
01:19:34
Kaio are someone you can put in for in a matchup when Thais needs arrest and you just feel like you can't pour chanter in because of the defense of issues.
01:19:44
Although, I mean, Williams looks lost on defense, too.
01:19:48
So he gets the blocks, but he is consistently lost in imprecations, so yeah.
01:19:55
Oh, he does? Yeah, he's He's in the video. Campbell.
01:19:59
He was a video game stud.
01:20:00
Like you're that you're blocked shots, but you have jumping away from your man to try to get it and leaving guys, open it.
01:20:07
You know, it's just like you can do the big things, but he really struggles with the little things you need.
01:20:16
Those little things like, Yeah, exactly.
01:20:21
So we'll see.
01:20:23
But it's definitely you still only like 23 right? Super young.
01:20:29
Like the books not closed down and buy anything like you can't know.
01:20:33
When did he come out? Was it is for didn't come on after, especially year.
01:20:37
Did he stay a little longer? I want to say he was there for two years.
01:20:44
Um but I am not certain he is.
01:20:51
He was 22.
01:20:53
Yeah.
01:20:54
Way drafted him in 18.
01:20:56
This is his second season.
01:20:58
Yes.
01:20:59
So he had to be 20.
01:21:01
Honesty.
01:21:03
Two years, right? Yes.
01:21:04
Oh, you know these guys? Your toe? Our point earlier, when we were talking about the rookies Come in tow league like these guys were really young.
01:21:13
Yeah, And be a free agent after at the age of, like, 25.
01:21:18
24.
01:21:19
25 right? Like souls.
01:21:24
I don't think he would be done by then.
01:21:25
I mean, he doesn't have an injury, anything like that.
01:21:28
Like he still teen.
01:21:30
Someone's gonna take a flyer on him.
01:21:34
Yeah, and he's got enough time where, you know, we're still talking two years away, so if he grows a little bit like, you know, in the mental aspect of the game like, it might not even be a flyer.
01:21:46
You might have hack of a player by that point.
01:21:48
He's a time lord.
01:21:49
He has all the time he needs, right? You know, it took me, like, over a year to figure out why they call they call of time.
01:22:02
Ward was just like, Oh, that's cool name scope.
01:22:08
It actually hit me while we were more recording a podcast because, like, I think I can't remember who's I know.
01:22:17
Trey was involved, but someone had said something about him being you always being late or something that someone said, like, that's why they call them time.
01:22:25
What? I'm like, son of a *****.
01:22:27
That's why I just like I just got it.
01:22:29
Like I got it.
01:22:30
It's I kept that in through editing like that in the Bobcats somewhere.
01:22:34
Like while guys I could've posits because I just got the joke and the best conference like and you know how to set his alarm or whatever the hell it was like.
01:22:44
I know all of that.
01:22:45
I just never put it together. Yep.
01:22:47
You mean kind of like his grandma? Yes.
01:22:49
Yeah, yeah.
01:22:50
Well, Sophie's he puts that game together.
01:22:54
Yeah.
01:22:56
And, you know, like I said, it's ah positive tonight, but at the same time, like he's not putting it together.
01:23:03
He was doing his everything.
01:23:06
That is his strength tonight between like blocking shots and just going to the rim and and being super athletic.
01:23:13
So it's, um it shows what you can do with time against lesser competition.
01:23:22
Yeah, someone's coming in the game.
01:23:26
That bread.
01:23:30
Let's see some more, Brad.
01:23:34
Okay, I'm one of those.
01:23:35
Want to make it look like it was the second guy, too.
01:23:36
But he still had his T shirt on and my other way can I point out that it's kind of funny who that on the day when everyone was saying like, Why is Wanamaker playing too much? Why is he playing too much? That they finally put their names on the bottom of their jerseys along with their message top? And Wanamaker's wearing a jersey? It said, Enough one of acre? Yeah, on their separate for three.
01:24:09
No, really, Not even all that close.
01:24:14
Oh, let's move from the Nets.
01:24:20
That's a nice little take.
01:24:22
It was like, 00 is a bob.
01:24:29
No. Oh, God.
01:24:32
Well, that better going, Uh, if let me miss that, like he would market smartest steak.
01:24:42
Well, yeah, yeah, I got nothing on that.
01:24:45
You see? Wow, She can't just like taking to say lay on the What happened there changes like Dan.
01:24:56
It's like That's how I defend.
01:24:58
So who just came in red? And if you want a in there nice, get about 6 43 of Avanti.
01:25:11
Here we go.
01:25:12
Let's let's see some some highlight reel plays here.
01:25:15
Hopefully, good highlight reel, And yet we haven't seen a town of John Day throughout the year, but he does look like someone who can at least hold his own on the on the defensive end.
01:25:29
He's an athletic player.
01:25:31
He's very athletic.
01:25:33
You know that kind of athleticism.
01:25:35
As long as you you know what you're doing, right? And you got to give, you know, I mean, defense is mostly effort in fundamentals.
01:25:45
So So what does he give it? Well, yeah.
01:25:50
So you need.
01:25:51
Yeah, He's got, like, dunk contest champion kind of athleticism.
01:25:58
Come on, guys. Don't let it. Let it.
01:26:00
Let it get to this point already.
01:26:03
So, uh, some some good defense by Romeo again.
01:26:06
So he's look great on that end of the court, but he's out.
01:26:12
It's still not really involved in the offense.
01:26:15
Despite getting big minutes, I really would.
01:26:19
Would hope to see him get a few touches down the stretch a rope, You know, they're up 30.
01:26:23
So let's just try some things.
01:26:26
Yeah.
01:26:27
See what? Huang, I think I think always going again.
01:26:33
He's up five g has wanna make the G's down 25.
01:26:39
So Wanamaker's in the game.
01:26:41
He's in the game, but he needs What does he have now? He has nine points and two assists, so you just need a triple double.
01:26:51
So you're saying it's a chance is there's a chance is always a chance.
01:26:55
And all those about the win, its fourth in a row.
01:26:57
That's crazy in a row now that grow up without a like seven 200? Yep, I'm really Oh, we'll get him next time. Maybe sometime.
01:27:14
Maybe one of these days I'll pick someone who doesn't get hurt.
01:27:16
The day eight inflate is out.
01:27:19
Oh, yeah, I got that one time in games.
01:27:21
Start tomorrow for there's a couple of early ones that they're not going.
01:27:25
Okay, is it? Actually, MBA starts at 1 30 tomorrow, but beautiful.
01:27:30
I love the 1 30 starts have been like my best week of vacation ever.
01:27:35
Train.
01:27:36
Well, it's vacation of these.
01:27:37
Yeah, that movie.
01:27:39
Just watching basketball.
01:27:41
Yeah, it's Ah, it's great like I usually have.
01:27:44
Like, when I'm working remote, I'll have something I'll have, like the radio on or something.
01:27:48
But like you, And if I can't watch the game and I mean most of the time, I can't I can't watch the one o'clock am, really, but I'm listening to it in the background and a kiss like it's soothing.
01:27:59
So good right that counts.
01:28:05
It's not.
01:28:06
It's not summer league, right? Real ****.
01:28:09
Yeah, because I we walked summer league because, like, we have to for the party.
01:28:13
Because, like the Celtics players are general this year.
01:28:20
Summer league team would have been interesting because we would have known, like all the guys in there.
01:28:28
Uh, I mean, that's that's not something that you get excited to watch.
01:28:35
It's like watching a preseason game like, yeah, you got to do it like I want to see these couple of things, but it's like it's not must see TV.
01:28:43
Yeah.
01:28:44
What? What do you think about Simmons injury? I actually didn't see what happened.
01:28:50
I didn't either.
01:28:51
But afterwards there was a report that there was no swelling and there was no pain.
01:28:56
I'm like, Well, it's injuries that make nodded injury, So I don't know what they said.
01:29:02
Emery camp memory came back clean.
01:29:05
Um, kinds.
01:29:06
That happened when there is no injuries, no pain.
01:29:11
I woke up.
01:29:12
It's gonna picking was going on.
01:29:16
Maybe you just had to take a **** like Pierce.
01:29:19
Yeah, I mean, publishers.
01:29:20
When did it though? Gradually I am.
01:29:26
You hear urban legends like that and sometimes you just like and I don't know, but it's awesome if it's true.
01:29:33
So I just choose to believe Oh, okay.
01:29:36
Got to is All right, all they cut it out.
01:29:42
I saw him coming down from the rim.
01:29:44
Ah, man.
01:29:46
Oh, you socking recipe n? It was a one handed.
01:29:50
It was an alley from Brad Wanamaker from the top of the three point line to Travanti one handed.
01:29:57
Well, I'm sure I'm gonna find that on Twitter, cause, uh, anything that happened Celtics like we're able to find on there pretty quick.
01:30:03
There's a ton of people who just want to cut these feelings.
01:30:07
Probably up there by now.
01:30:08
Are they Saw the replay on local.
01:30:11
Come on, show it.
01:30:16
Uh, that's what I get for picking the national broadcast.
01:30:19
We probably should to sink that up beforehand.
01:30:21
I just I I did this strike for Abby yesterday, and I watched the TNT, but I just always and I love the Celtics here. We don't know.
01:30:34
Oh, there we go.
01:30:35
I saw that one 50 waiting, given that and I'm Yeah, it's, you know, he didn't have much power in a kind of rally around with not.
01:30:48
It's still a 50 though.
01:30:52
Oh, jeez.
01:30:53
Jews 20 points back for 56 to go.
01:30:59
He's, uh He's getting some points out of Wanamaker.
01:31:01
Looking got over me.
01:31:02
**** it, man.
01:31:04
That's like playing on rookie.
01:31:06
I think that was wide open.
01:31:09
Yeah.
01:31:10
Yeah, this is just a demonstration, and we see Grant Williams your game now.
01:31:18
Uh, well, I mean, that was blocked, but yeah, Yeah, you go take a hit.
01:31:25
And that's why I trust a man he's gonna he's gonna who might not execute But he's gonna try to do the right thing.
01:31:31
So who do you think Brooklyn cuts it 20 at the end of the game? No. God, no.
01:31:44
Ice and caisson.
01:31:48
Mr Bucket.
01:31:50
Yeah, that lasted, what a week? Another one.
01:31:56
Who's that? Send me.
01:31:59
Okay.
01:32:00
All right.
01:32:02
Yeah. There's no way they're 20.
01:32:04
The Brooklyn's playing defense now.
01:32:06
Like they're not playing.
01:32:07
Trying not to get hurt.
01:32:10
No, I guide, we're done here.
01:32:12
We want to go back toe.
01:32:14
Whatever we do in the bubble.
01:32:16
If you go back to the mover hood, you know, go to the barbershop.
01:32:18
Whatever I want to make.
01:32:33
No, we need more.
01:32:34
Wanamaker looks for tonight.
01:32:37
We need more Wanamaker, he said.
01:32:39
A little decent game tonight.
01:32:41
Yes, plus 23.
01:32:43
And he's the He's a topic that we talk about all the time in other sports, like he's before a player against Bless your competition like Wanamaker sticks out as one of the best guys on the court against, like, end of the roster N b A guys.
01:33:02
Heaney shines when the competition gets really, really strong.
01:33:09
Hey, it looks like he's in over his head.
01:33:12
Like he, uh, I think one of our friends that you know who absolutely hates point on and make it, um, he made a comment, wants me like if you what's the Julie? He would suck, I'm like and I looked up, want to make his D league stats, and he was like, He put him under.
01:33:28
He put it like triple doubles in the Julie.
01:33:30
Yeah, drawn it.
01:33:32
It was like, All right, he's a for a player.
01:33:35
You said, Yeah, he a little one game.
01:33:38
The Lakers game in L. A.
01:33:40
Like he was brutal and just couldn't keep up, and he seemed really out of his element.
01:33:45
But like every games, like around that, I can't remember which games they were, but they were games where he played really well, like within a couple of days of that game.
01:33:54
It might have even been like the night before two nights before.
01:33:57
But when he plays against the best of the best out there, like he struggles like to see that caution Edward scoring a basket, I I'd love to see that off.
01:34:10
Like that's Ah, that's like in any house.
01:34:13
Yeah, that's what we were expecting from him is to be able to come in and convert plays like that.
01:34:18
And, uh, really, how often have we seen that? Is that the 1st 1 1st 1 I've seen in the something uniforms? Yeah, I've seen plenty of that in Purdue.
01:34:30
Aside from the preseason games and, uh, one game, where you going really? Well, I think we've been preseason game in the Houston scrimmage bubble again.
01:34:43
And that was that.
01:34:44
Like that's it. That's the book on him.
01:34:46
You had a couple of ruling big games in main jail.
01:34:53
Great great job getting into getting open off all you have.
01:34:58
He does, but it's like it's just it's Sometimes they roll out.
01:35:03
They don't know it can all fall like he got a good like it, enrolled in, roll around and came out like That's the consistency, though.
01:35:14
Like like a Lou Williams would hit.
01:35:18
Well, he was better.
01:35:20
He is.
01:35:21
But that's, you know, I'm saying, like, get it semi filed out.
01:35:24
Jesus e.
01:35:26
I want to see that Carson man, That should just gotta be automatic.
01:35:32
Yeah, like I want to see 50 at least the open corner three.
01:35:37
Like it's Yeah, see the easiest, non non my of non dunk shot in the game like it's the most efficient anyway.
01:35:46
And it's Ah, it's always like this.
01:35:50
Heartening when the open corner three doesn't go.
01:35:53
But, like the fact is, nothing always goes like there are no green shots in real basketball, right? That was where Carson, just like you were dribbling like it was 1950.
01:36:07
And then you get blue by a dude and oh, now that is something that I want to see it from her.
01:36:16
It's that you hit not because he hit that in Oklahoma.
01:36:25
He hit Link.
01:36:27
I think it was the Oklahoma City AM.
01:36:28
It was one of the first.
01:36:30
It was one of the scrimmage games and it kind of like it monster around running like a got that wall bounce and oh, come on, Grant the air.
01:36:41
We go party tonight and got it like it bounced around and went.
01:36:49
And I think he had another one that, like, maybe rimmed out.
01:36:52
And it was like, OK, him shooting that like he made one.
01:36:56
But can he make the shot? Or did he gets, like happened to make it cause those are two totally different things that one in there.
01:37:02
If you look he looks like he's comfortable shooting that shot in like he could, he could not, And there's caution hitting its not because of what the hell? It doesn't matter.
01:37:10
So that's where he drives in the MBA, 1 41 to 109 And you know what this game is going to do to is this game is gonna make all of the people who were questioning Brad Stevens just go off the wall because it's like so much more of you.
01:37:29
Look what Look it Edwards. Look at him. Shoot.
01:37:31
Look, it will keep performing, locked people down.
01:37:33
Look, a Robert Williams.
01:37:34
He you know, he's probably he's close to 20.
01:37:36
Now he's probably, like 17 years, 18 and five.
01:37:41
Yeah, and you know, it's like it's extending garbage time solely.
01:37:47
There's a lot of positives we can take out of this for sure.
01:37:50
It's awesome.
01:37:51
Teoh to see everybody.
01:37:53
All of these guys coming in and playing while that, like we got to remember.
01:37:58
Like what? This is to like, they're playing back up there playing a team that, uh oh, it's right now for the guys who weren't really weren't on the team.
01:38:08
We're gonna be on the team.
01:38:09
What did you want? They dio old boy.
01:38:14
Yeah, they're not Did that already? Yeah, they're like they quit.
01:38:18
Like we're gonna try to get their numbers on the offensive end.
01:38:22
They have just laughs out there like, I hope that was a pass.
01:38:28
Yeah, well, that wasn't a shot attempt.
01:38:31
You local.
01:38:34
Just show that.
01:38:36
And I think, you know, never mind the stats.
01:38:42
What's really positive from these young players right now is they all look really hungry and their step playing hard.
01:38:53
Even though they're up by 30 points.
01:38:56
They're playing like they're fighting for minutes and they really are, and they're playing like they know that Brooklyn, on the other hand, is just kind of going through the motions.
01:39:09
They're playing like that a resort, right? Yeah.
01:39:15
I can't wait to go to my room.
01:39:18
Yeah, but I bet the room's really nice.
01:39:21
But like, especially Williams, it was still playing with that energy after getting, you know, a good chunk of minutes tonight.
01:39:27
To where? You know, if he had a couple of lapses in the last minute like nobody would even notice like, but that he's not.
01:39:36
He's playing it until, you know, until the end.
01:39:39
And that's really encouraging, even more so than being able to pull up the stat sheet on these guys.
01:39:47
It is a lot.
01:39:50
Oh, sure, but it's also a lot easier to go like 85% falling here like this, still still getting turnovers.
01:39:58
And there's you wanna make Getting another pocket cause is, why aren't Morgan Because up to 13 now, so on you shot 57%.
01:40:12
So a nice night overall for Brad Wanamaker and this will be the last possession where they do anything, cause if they get the ball back after this, they're just gonna run the clock out there's given with a nice finish.
01:40:36
Still, still playing are down to that last possession.
01:40:39
And then, you know, whatever Brooklyn does here, I'm sure they will try to score.
01:40:43
But oh, through it, do it.
01:40:50
You know, Bob kind of wanted Teoh problem with.
01:40:55
Yeah, it would have been like the end of the rookie game this year when I just wanted to dunk contest mode.
01:41:04
But while the most points in a game for the Celtics since November 25 1992 nice.
01:41:10
So that some that's just a complete performance from them tonight and you said at a time like they've they were playing lesser competition tonight, but you've got to take care of business in those games.
01:41:24
Yes, they have lost those games before.
01:41:28
They've lost some this year like they struggled against the Hawks.
01:41:31
They won those games, but they struggled against the Hawks a couple of times this year.
01:41:34
So I think that's one today.
01:41:37
They would have had the Yeah, so and and those were different Nets teams that were being them, um, you know, the day after Thanksgiving they had they would have carry, but like they were in much better shape than they are now.
01:41:51
But you've got to take care of business against those bad teams.
01:41:55
And and they did.
01:41:56
And, you know, I was starting to get a little worried because I saw an article, and I can't remember who the hell it was.
01:42:04
It was some of them. The globe.
01:42:06
Um, you wrote something today about the Celtics thinking that maybe they could flip the switch.
01:42:11
And when I feel that I get absolutely horrified because enough to be a team that can flip the switch And tonight's effort really showed that, you know that they're not in that mindset, hopefully And that there just working out a few kinks and getting through, You know, these eight games and getting ready.
01:42:33
Teoh, go on around at this thing.
01:42:35
Four games now with two and two in the bubble.
01:42:39
Yes, I will. Happily there.
01:42:42
I think we have a pretty fair, favorable schedule.
01:42:44
Yeah, they got I don't have it in front of me.
01:42:46
But I know the end with Washington.
01:42:48
They have Memphis Underground Landau in Toronto.
01:42:52
So that should be at least three and one.
01:42:55
Yeah, that that Toronto Game Mobile is big compute of playing really well, too.
01:43:00
So, like Giuliano's Gatto playing? Catch him.
01:43:06
I don't want to see a city.
01:43:08
Oh, no, no.
01:43:09
I want them to the body that I get it.
01:43:10
But it might not matter for seeding, because Renato is not doing their part to fall out of a little behind because they're going out there and they're winning games.
01:43:19
So they've been, you know, they've been great since since this restart.
01:43:25
Yeah, but I think my mom Yeah.
01:43:32
Yeah, game over for the seven. That.
01:43:37
Yeah, and I'm going.
01:43:40
And there were a couple of people who, you know, we got noticed, started following us and a couple of people who sent us things.
01:43:50
I gotta look into what that is, but, um Teoh Yeah, baby and textile.
01:43:55
3394 Thank you for sending us the foam finger and the, uh, the cap again.
01:44:04
We knew the platform.
01:44:05
So we're gonna figure out what this stuff means, But we'll be doing this again, and, uh oh, no, I think a good trial run.
01:44:12
But if you're still here and listening to this, you can check out our podcast.
01:44:19
It's called Section five onwards.
01:44:22
Section number five Ivy you can find that anywhere Podcasts are available.
01:44:28
Apple, google, Spotify, stitcher, you name it.
01:44:33
It's up there and give us a follow on Instagram and Twitter at section five.
01:44:41
You could also follow me personally on each of those.
01:44:46
You can see my name up on the screen There on the top left.
01:44:49
I used the same handle for everything.
01:44:50
So if I'm on their type that in and that's thing, you're going to find it, Adams, your toward is a little different.
01:44:56
You want to throw it out there, so it's basically the same thing that's shown, but underscore N B A.
01:45:01
So But sure, if you throw a us go in there, yeah, yeah, I'm sure you're only one.
01:45:08
A lot of the copper.
01:45:09
One will be able to find it from there, but thank you to anyone who stuck it out with us the whole way.
01:45:14
If anyone did, Or um, you know, if you were in and out are again Thank you for listening, because I know this is probably a completely new audience to us because we didn't market this or anything. We just decided.
01:45:26
Let's jump on SportsCastr.
01:45:28
Let's see if the technology works.
01:45:29
Let's see how this works.
01:45:31
And overall, I think it went well.
01:45:33
Way had some fun doing it, and we'll jump back on it at some point and, um, probably get a little bit more of a warning that we're doing it as opposed to saying, Hey, here we are.
01:45:46
And, uh, you know, Listen, listen, I don't I meant e feel it.

Transcript hideup

00:00:03
Well, um, it was a foul, all right.
00:00:09
It looks like we're live the Nets coach.
00:00:15
**** if I know no one to watch it get.
00:00:18
Um, yeah, was Atkinson he got the ax, You son of a *****. It is, Jack.
00:00:26
Yeah, which makes me feel because I remember him in college being an absolute stud and being projected like top five.
00:00:33
Pick that he was back into college back then.
00:00:36
That's what kids did.
00:00:38
And I heard his hand.
00:00:41
I think it missed most of the season.
00:00:45
And as it seemed like he was in college, like eight years, Yeah, he might have been.
00:00:51
And then he ended up being a second round pick, and he was just never really anything in the n b.
00:00:58
A was really like the forced memory that I have of someone like going back to school and really hurting their draft stock was shocked.
00:01:13
Oh, it's definitely happens, but it's ah, it's the 1st 1 that I remember because it was like the first year I washed college basketball.
00:01:21
New mass was good, so you can figure out the 16 18 months ping.
00:01:26
And that was on.
00:01:29
So anyway, yeah, they opened up this League of Ton in the last couple of minutes, and 14 point leading is only one starter on the court.
00:01:47
That's right, right? And granted.
00:01:52
It's against Brooklyn's taxi squad, but there's still some good players out there.
00:01:56
So they got a better squad that it did last night.
00:01:59
Oh, yeah, they arrested guys last night.
00:02:01
Big time.
00:02:03
Alan didn't play.
00:02:04
Uh, Harris didn't play, didn't play.
00:02:09
Hopefully, it doesn't put up 51 again.
00:02:12
That's that money.
00:02:13
That's that money Thean efficient, meditating right by open shots, open shots, overcovered shots.
00:02:24
I don't care if it's only worth two points, especially players with Hayward skills that, like those shots of money, they're going to go down a hell of a lot more than they're gonna miss.
00:02:33
So, um, I see we got a couple of people who have joined us, so that's Ah, that's awesome.
00:02:40
This is in a trial run for us.
00:02:43
This is our first time ever jumping onto SportsCastr.
00:02:47
We are on the section five podcasts, which you can find anywhere.
00:02:51
Podcasts are found.
00:02:53
You name it Apple, Google, Spotify, etcetera.
00:02:55
You know where to get podcasts.
00:02:57
You can also follow us on Twitter handle was right there underneath the video, and we saw a lot of people doing stuff on SportsCastr and figured What the hell? Let's give this a shot.
00:03:09
Um, let's see what it's like.
00:03:10
Give it a go, and, uh, have some have some fun talking about the games live because we're always talking about it after the fact.
00:03:15
So we're going to give, give our insights, maybe talk about just random stuff.
00:03:23
Like, if you heard the job on peace, Uh, we're just, like, random thoughts that we think of what we're watching these games.
00:03:29
Um, so we're not going to give you play by play, because if you won't believe I play like you're gonna go to the professionals, they're gonna do a better job at it than we are.
00:03:39
So, um, we're just gonna talk basketball talk.
00:03:43
The game gives some insights on what we see, and, um, hopefully it doesn't suck.
00:03:48
So, um, our show typically has four of us, but there's only two of us on today.
00:03:56
Ah, Mark and I'm joined by Adam.
00:03:58
So we've got I think, about 28 or so episodes up for our pods.
00:04:04
So kind of getting up and running into and hitting our stride.
00:04:08
Uh, I can see a couple of Twitter followers of the virtual truck today.
00:04:15
Oh, yeah, I seen lucky.
00:04:17
And I think there was Ah, I know there's what One woman that follows this.
00:04:21
That's what I think with the glasses.
00:04:23
Oh, awesome.
00:04:25
Pretty right there with the dog.
00:04:31
Think other Twitter Beautiful.
00:04:36
What showed out? Teoh? That follower.
00:04:39
Um, can you get on that gives, like, the name Section five for those of you who don't know us comes from Adam and G, who is also part of the podcast on season ticket holders in section five.
00:04:55
Do you guys have access to get on that screen? I yet gm they sent an email to G.
00:05:01
He has to fill out a couple of forms, and then they they send you an email on when they schedule you for, like, you have to kind of get scheduled for when you're gonna jump on, right? What's the waiting one? Which game? They're gonna get us on hopefully soon and you get the whole game.
00:05:18
From what I I would think not.
00:05:21
They probably only need to give you, like, 1/4 or something, right? It's like the bleacher bar a friend way where you get like and ending with a view of the field and that, you know, there's so many season ticket holders, right? You want you want Everyone happened is only eight games.
00:05:37
They You need a spot for pop here soon. Yeah.
00:05:40
Yeah, he was Is there would be the last time I saw Lucky there just now.
00:05:45
Right? Okay.
00:05:49
It looks like we're a little out of sync up.
00:05:51
Here we go.
00:05:52
Romeo is not gonna finish.
00:05:53
That's alright. Coolies spoiler alert.
00:05:55
She's just so I let you No, no, it's ah, it's all good.
00:06:02
Now we know what we're dealing with, and we know that I'm about a second and 1/2 behind you.
00:06:07
So we kind of had a feeling that we were a little bit out of sync when you had said something about Robert Williams jumping out of the building and I turned for my screen.
00:06:16
And then I see it happening That's not in sync at all.
00:06:21
But anyway, I want to play with this and see if in any way we can.
00:06:28
I don't know what any of these buttons dio, um, on the page.
00:06:31
Yeah, because I heard a rumor that there were some stats on here.
00:06:36
I can create a call I can't even see with others.
00:06:43
Okay, There's a mute button that might have been traced.
00:06:45
Problem? Um, yeah.
00:06:50
I don't see any kind of insider or anything here.
00:06:54
That's too bad.
00:06:55
Oh, I got, um, Yeah, I got the tap.
00:06:58
But you dropping like this stuck.
00:07:01
Hey, it happens.
00:07:04
Uh, it's a trial around.
00:07:05
We said we said that we have no agenda, No plan, no nothing at all.
00:07:10
So, um, anyway, the the seas have a nice little lead.
00:07:16
They're up 18.
00:07:17
Um, and, um, we'll see here.
00:07:21
Hayward leads the way with 10 points, Jalen got eight.
00:07:24
And, uh, Robert Williams, who is someone that we've been talking about a lot on the pod, actually has seven points.
00:07:35
He's two for two. Any three for three from the line.
00:07:37
So hey, has one block.
00:07:40
He has no rebounds.
00:07:41
So he's He's shown up pretty well on the offensive end so far.
00:07:45
And that's something that is is definitely welcome, because, uh, I think I was going to saying in may be our last pot, maybe two pods ago Robert Williams has done the same thing in Ah, the Bubble.
00:08:02
And, you know, at the end of this season, when he came back, as he did the rest of the time, he was with the Celtics, and that's a whole lot of nothing so good to see a little bit of something out of him.
00:08:13
Obviously, it's a very small sample size, but and our boy Wanamaker has six points already in six minutes.
00:08:20
He's really so much he gets new marching and got so much hate over the last 24 hours or so because I think I didn't like was that.
00:08:32
They would say, Oh, it was like, Oh, I want to make an isolation I don't want to see that And I know exactly what position you're talking about.
00:08:39
He got thrown the ball like a hot potato, like three seconds on the shot clock and, like he had to do something like, I don't like, what do you want him to do? They're like, I want you any more minutes.
00:08:50
They should be because Kendall's not here because Tim does not getting his minutes, and so that's putting him, you know, like you know you're not setting him up to fail, but he's going against a lot better competition, Right? And Marcus Smart also followed out in the third quarter last night, so Wanamaker was just thrown into the fire and asked to do more than then.
00:09:11
He's normally asked to Dio, and you didn't play while it was one of his.
00:09:15
I'd say probably one of his worst games of the season, but it came less than a week after.
00:09:21
May be his best game of the season because I thought he was walking because he was efficient.
00:09:26
He was making the right place.
00:09:27
He was doing everything that you want, a backup point guard to Dio and he He wasn't throwing the ball away.
00:09:33
He wasn't doing anything that just makes you kind of scream at your TV.
00:09:39
He was just doing the right thing, making the right play and not trying to do too much.
00:09:47
And that's what he done most of this season.
00:09:49
So it was that there was a time right before the All Star break.
00:09:54
Quick he was.
00:09:56
He was like a top 75 fantasy player.
00:09:59
I remember looking at him like when Campbell was hurt and I think, I don't know.
00:10:03
Jalen might have been banged up and he was getting Woman's.
00:10:05
They should have been.
00:10:06
And he was like an efficient point guard, like getting right.
00:10:15
He is an efficient style of player because of what I just said, that he makes good decisions.
00:10:21
He's basketball.
00:10:23
I Q is pretty high.
00:10:25
Aside from the play last night, worried pump fake nobody twice it looked like, can't against your bottom like there's nobody here. Just lay it up.
00:10:34
It comes, I guess.
00:10:35
Bread splitting the good.
00:10:40
Good. Let's see it.
00:10:41
I'm a couple of seconds behind you, so I still see Sean Marks.
00:10:44
But who was coming in? You know, you're watching the game on ESPN and you're watching the local game.
00:10:55
I'm watching ESPN.
00:10:56
That's our problem.
00:10:58
I don't know way now.
00:11:02
We can just we'll just wing it.
00:11:03
It's fine.
00:11:04
It's working.
00:11:06
Um, so we got We don't want to make a Hayward.
00:11:09
Yeah, Carson Edwards. Oh, God.
00:11:11
Carson Edwards.
00:11:14
Ah, he's I had I don't want to say I had really high hopes.
00:11:18
One because I knew it was inconsistencies in college.
00:11:21
I wasn't just looking at that tournament game that he had against Virginia.
00:11:25
I want to say, But, uh, I definitely thought that he would be that scoring punch off the banks and he really hasn't been.
00:11:33
He's had Funny is going and going into the tournament last year, I had that exact same view point of view that he was just really inconsistent.
00:11:42
And after watching the time that I'm like, wow, like this dude could get his own shot like That's crazy.
00:11:48
Um, so it is a little disappointing because I did expect him to kind of he's supposed to be like our Duncan, Robertson said.
00:11:59
Just touch and shoot, catch and shoot, catch and shoot like that's what I That's what I wanted.
00:12:04
That's what we thought he was gonna be.
00:12:05
I mean, Junkin Robbins is a whole other animal.
00:12:08
He's as good as it gets in that role.
00:12:10
He's He was probably like the next generation of like a Kyle Korver who's like is an all time great shooter and gives you nothing else.
00:12:20
Robinson's got a little bit of a better body, you know, bigger body than corporate, so we can probably give you a few more things.
00:12:26
But, um, I was hoping that he could do something like that.
00:12:32
Maybe settle into.
00:12:34
He would have to be a backup point guard, I would think, because even though he plays like a two, he's he was too small.
00:12:40
It could be a consistent to in the league, especially when he's as raw as he is.
00:12:46
So it was kind of a tweener, and that's not as big a deal in today's MBA as it used to be, but that yeah, semi wide open and he got it.
00:12:59
You know, some reasonable guys.
00:13:02
We get a little bit of hate and like fixed.
00:13:04
I get a little more.
00:13:08
He's he's a bench guy and he's He's a solid bench.
00:13:12
Guys defensively responsible.
00:13:13
He is improving on the offensive end.
00:13:16
How long does that last year or two years ago? He's He's not hitting that shot that we just saw him make 10 seconds ago.
00:13:22
Whenever it waas, I checked the numbers.
00:13:25
This year, he said, he actually has more.
00:13:27
It is the best win share year when you add his defense and offense, Andy shooting the best percentage of threes, okay and his minutes higher because when shares is a ***ulative stat.
00:13:37
So if he's playing more minutes he would be, he would have more time to turn the monument.
00:13:42
It's OK, yeah, So there's there's definite improvement there in.
00:13:46
I mean, the the bio test shows it to you. Julie.
00:13:49
He's been better this year.
00:13:50
He was still on expendable guy when they have a roster crunch at the end of the year, which they will, because they have a ton of graphics and it's honey young guys.
00:13:59
He might be a guy who is not here anymore, but there's a spot for him in the league.
00:14:02
He's gonna play somewhere.
00:14:03
He's going to stick around for a bit and he's going to contribute like he could have a Jae Crowder type of career.
00:14:09
Is there a little bit different by like he's got some crowded happily Jae Crowder was really young, like one crowd was with Dallas.
00:14:19
Kind of a no usually kind of guy and artist game is really has developed offensively, I think because he was getting a ton of time with the Celtics won.
00:14:28
Uh, yeah, he was just kind of thrown into the fire, but semi, yes, some he's improved.
00:14:37
And I think that, you know, like you said with the young guys coming to the defense what we get, But, um, get smart.
00:14:48
Came out a little compete.
00:14:51
Oh, that's not great.
00:14:52
Oh, yeah, I see that now.
00:14:54
Um, but seventies like again, like guys are expecting him to be, like, way more than he is.
00:15:00
And it's like, Okay, well, he's not going to take him with you, Not like cancer.
00:15:05
And that's when we got him for That's it.
00:15:10
And that's another guy who I'm a big ***** cantor fan.
00:15:15
I just love that style of player that the dinosaur, low post old school big man who doesn't have as much use in the league anymore.
00:15:23
But Cantor is.
00:15:25
He has his shortcomings.
00:15:26
He is not a star in this league anymore.
00:15:28
He would have been a star had he played in the nineties, but he's just not that anymore.
00:15:32
Um, and it's not just the game has changed.
00:15:37
Even last year on a bum shoulder, he was the the starting center on the friggin team that made the West.
00:15:44
Yeah, and that was by the Falcons.
00:15:46
Nurkic got hurt, but he was playing on the badge, told he was and and Nurkic is another guy who kind of is in that mold.
00:15:55
Nurkic is about anarchy is an absolute beast.
00:15:58
But I have been really happy with cancer across the board.
00:16:03
We know he can't guard on the perimeter.
00:16:05
We know he can't hit that getting into long rings jumper with any kind of consistency.
00:16:11
He's got his shortcomings, but he is one of the best offensive rebounds in the league.
00:16:16
And that's something the Celtics haven't had in years can.
00:16:21
Yeah, right.
00:16:23
I mean, that guy, that guy was pretty good, too.
00:16:29
Yeah, you get clean up.
00:16:31
Yeah, Yeah.
00:16:32
I mean, when you're as good as he is at everything, but But the, uh, the people out there screaming, they want Cantor.
00:16:43
You have his minutes cutting the playoffs like we're going to see him in the playoffs and better or worse, like he's going to play and he's gonna contribute.
00:16:52
He's gonna contribute Teoh a playoff team this year, just like he did last year in Portland.
00:16:57
It's just it's match.
00:16:58
It's There's some teams that he won't play against, right? Some.
00:17:01
Seems like if we play Milwaukee, guaranteed somebody's going to get his 15 20 minutes yet, like it's gonna happen because he plays decent defense against um against yet so is going to be and there's gonna be also games on Cancer doesn't play that much, but again, it's It's just natural based.
00:17:19
Its matchup at It's situational, too.
00:17:22
So some people freak out about You can't just This isn't okay.
00:17:26
Well, you could just bust out the same line of every day, right? You know that that's not good enough to do that.
00:17:32
There are some teams that can do that.
00:17:34
The Celtics aren't that they got there, a couple of guys at the top who are who are great and they're gonna play the bulk of the minutes.
00:17:41
But that second half of the roster or the bottom 2/3 of the roster, even you're going to see different guys in different situations.
00:17:48
And I think that's probably a best case scenario because as we know they're there, bank doesn't go very deep.
00:17:56
There's question marks on just about everybody after you know, the top couple of guys Cantor and someone said this a phone finger.
00:18:06
I'm not quite sure what that means, because this is the first time.
00:18:08
But ah ah, unquestioning it.
00:18:10
Thank you.
00:18:14
That's what me off the rails Let's just, like, popped up on my screen.
00:18:20
It was like, Boom, um, but, uh and, uh and she just started following us, too.
00:18:26
So thank you for that.
00:18:27
And, uh, you know, we appreciate you listening.
00:18:29
That's that's great.
00:18:31
Uh, so the one thing, the one thing I do like about this bubble and obviously did not want a pandemic to occur I wanted this to be the regular offseason, but I don't think that this has done for us.
00:18:44
It's one.
00:18:45
It's basically given guys another year of experience without season ending and like you're seeing so much improvement from a lot of young guys, like namely, like Jaylen Brown is just looks like a completely He looks like a completely different player than he did before the bubble.
00:19:03
Right, if you have never watched the Celtics game before and you just watched like these three, you know, three plus games, you will look at this team and take Jaylen.
00:19:11
Brown is hands down.
00:19:12
Their best player.
00:19:13
Yeah, yeah, and he's just slashing, He shooting, he's creating.
00:19:18
I mean, he's doing a lot for us right now, and that's been one of the positives and travel like guys don't have to travel like that's That's big, right? That's what we have.
00:19:31
Dudes on a resort.
00:19:35
Play basketball and don't go off for wings or don't go to a strip club.
00:19:39
Just stay at a dash guy outside in the lobby and don't listen to cattle.
00:19:45
You Berries, tweets.
00:19:47
All these don't actual events.
00:19:49
Might have got some of those details wrong, but I know it was a great Yeah, but yeah.
00:19:57
All right.
00:19:58
I'll see that in a second jump to get out of here.
00:20:01
E jumped on debt, was gently got that.
00:20:06
That game was so frustrating.
00:20:09
Like reverts a nice player.
00:20:11
He really is.
00:20:12
But he shouldn't drop 50 on anyone who's any good.
00:20:15
And I can't remember if we're missing the guys or not.
00:20:18
I'm sure that the hospital Celtics were in full effect and they were missing some guys.
00:20:21
But, uh, I mean, I can't replicate.
00:20:23
It was it was like, six months ago, But yeah, with, uh, with Jalen.
00:20:28
And I've talked about this on the pod.
00:20:30
Maybe not necessarily well, Jalen, but more so I am.
00:20:35
He was playing with confidence and he goes to the rim and he's expecting to score every single time, and that's something that we didn't see in previous seasons.
00:20:43
With him, he go to the rim, he'd be a little bit tentative or he'd be a little bit unsure of what he wants to dio.
00:20:48
Now he gets knows like I'm more afraid acting you embedded in you.
00:20:53
I'm going to do whatever I want if you can stop me.
00:20:56
Okay, fine, you stop me, but you're not gonna get me next time.
00:20:59
And that is something that I think is such a huge factor for really every player at any level, whether it's n b a, whether it's directly get the why.
00:21:12
If you play with confidence, you're gonna play better.
00:21:15
And it's not something that you can find on an Excel spreadsheet or, you know, in a stat marker or anything like that.
00:21:22
It's it's mental.
00:21:23
It's the human element of the gang, and I think like it looks like the game has slowed down for him, see accidentally, and it's also reps.
00:21:33
You know you need reps and you have to be able to put yourself in those pressure situations.
00:21:37
And from his rookie season, we've been making the playoffs right and we've been playing in, but he's played in some big games, ready for a guy.
00:21:44
That's only, I think, what, 23 or 24? Right? And and that's and he's not 19 like data, right? Yeah, and that's Ah, that's rare for a guy who remember he was 1/3 pick in the draft, people who are a top three pick in the draft, They don't get to play in the playoffs right away most of the time because they're going to an awful awful team.
00:22:05
Um, for the most part, there's always teams that make a jump or teams that you make a trade to get that top three pick or what have you? But for the most part, like those guys gotta wait a couple of years to play in the playoffs.
00:22:17
She's got a couple of runs under him.
00:22:19
He's he's been on teams that have won.
00:22:21
Siri's Ah, a lot of guys that age with that skill set and like that pedigree, have not had that.
00:22:30
So it's just another another piece of the puzzle when it comes Teoh these guys developing into s****om because when that when the team was making those runs, they really weren't supposed to like three year they the first year they went to the playoffs, the first year they had Isaiah, that team was gonna That team was expected to be like that.
00:22:57
Lasted league, are fighting for that spot, and they ended up making the playoffs and they were really a year ahead of schedule every year after that, I think you even, like, name the our fantasy basketball league like it's always like crust for cross, for 17 across for 18 Yeah, and this Ah, I think that one was like cross for Okafor.
00:23:19
Yeah, no drive drive for Okafor because it's like years ago, it was Dr for 17.
00:23:28
Now what's your drive for 18.
00:23:31
But I signed into the week that year.
00:23:34
It's like Dr for Okafor like Okay, this is where we are that you may run ups.
00:23:39
I don't know if I can say that on this platform.
00:23:41
I want you to look into that, but like that team made the playoffs, and now every single year after that, they've over achieved maybe not, according to the team that they had it at the time, but they over, according to the team that they should have had in the original projected plan.
00:23:58
Like when they shipped off everybody to Brooklyn and got Brooklyn's entire future, which we're seeing.
00:24:04
Both teams are showing the effects of tonight, so But I was gonna say I think that off.
00:24:18
Yeah, that that that that was a heist.
00:24:22
We got Zieler, Brown and James in the long side we got on.
00:24:34
It's not a long something like in connection.
00:24:36
We got Campbell from it because they had carried to do with it, so, right, Yeah, there.
00:24:42
If you want to do like that the trade train, the trade family, there's a link somewhere there.
00:24:47
Yeah, and you're not to get too far off off topic with a different sport.
00:24:51
But like, um, if you follow the the Bruins Joe Thornton trade, you won't get, like everything that they got from the fruits of that trade.
00:25:00
Like they got the money to San Shara and Savard and they got Farrant.
00:25:03
And, like, they got like, ah, whole bunch of stuff that they want the Stanley Cup with fur trading EVP for nothing, which was kind of weird, but, uh, so it's that's always fun to look at cause you know you can evaluate to trade when it happens.
00:25:17
But you know, you don't know until three years later.
00:25:20
Five years later, 10 years later, how would you know what the Bruins when it was 10 years later? We're finally looking at everything they got and all those fires playing out their career.
00:25:29
Is that some of them being shorter than L A? Um, I could say I could say pretty confidently that will be.
00:25:36
See it the fruits of that trade.
00:25:40
Ac***ulate with Jalen potato for hopefully at least 10 years.
00:25:47
Yeah, give me 10.
00:25:48
More like, Really, And that's not a pipe dream, cause, like those who guys, they're already here.
00:25:55
They're playing together and pick up either around them.
00:25:58
They got their coach, Do you think? I mean, you never know with coaches, but like the building grounds, the building blocks are here.
00:26:08
Yes, it'll and it seems like they're both likable around the league, like guys seem like.
00:26:13
Like they can get that third guy When, when Hayward's on which I'll go out on a limb and say that Donovan Mitchell will eventually play with disease because of just I seen how close their relationship wasn't Team USA over the summer.
00:26:32
And, like ST Tatum and Mitchell there in the All Star Game, they seem like, you know, they were very cozy together.
00:26:39
So Mitchell and Goldberg isn't really a great situation.
00:26:42
And who knows what you know what? That franchise is gonna pick because I think once they lose in the playoffs and Mitchell's timeless clothes, if they make a commitment to go bare, I don't see how Mitchell the only way you could stay without it's gonna be whichever guys going to commit to them because it's Utah like it's hard to get guys to stay there, stopped in the Malone did and, like everybody else, has laughed like.
00:27:12
But that was even in Stockton.
00:27:14
Malone was like, You know, you know, the free agency rules were way different, and, oh, absolutely guys are basically once you drafted up by a team like it was rare for juice leaf.
00:27:24
Right? So now it's like who I could see Mitchell leading complete Oh, absolutely, like the way that is.
00:27:35
The lead works overall, like these guys generally leave, you know, they're all team enough.
00:27:40
They all know each other like since they were kids, they evolve noting jumping.
00:27:43
And that wasn't the case in the past generation.
00:27:45
So they didn't like each other if they didn't know, right? Yeah.
00:27:51
Oh! Oh, yeah, Sorry I got the sound off.
00:27:57
So, like, Yeah, yeah.
00:28:00
Oh, I see what you mean.
00:28:01
Yeah, Guns, man, I said this in a life pod to like, I'm not a guy to complain about the rafts, But my God, the Celtics have got the short end of it since they got into the bubble.
00:28:12
Yeah, they really I mean, smart following out of the third quarter.
00:28:16
Really? Yeah.
00:28:18
It's with eight files.
00:28:19
That was Yeah, go figure.
00:28:21
Marcus Smart says some junk about the rafts in post game.
00:28:24
And then suddenly he's fouled out in the third quarter.
00:28:26
Like they definitely that's That's N b a basketball, you know, with everything we love about it, like there's still that stuff.
00:28:35
And there's still guys like Eddie Rush who will never make a call against the home team, which any ****ing risk.
00:28:44
That's I think of really interesting piece of the bubble.
00:28:51
There are no home games.
00:28:52
Obviously, we know that this is a home crowd, which means there's no home officiating now, I'm not saying that these raps are doing it on purpose.
00:29:02
But there are officials and there's actually sites for gambling purposes for entertainment purposes only where you can see the statistics on these officials and their biases towards home in a way.
00:29:16
And there are referees who have a significant fall towards home teams and they roughed into the playoffs.
00:29:24
So I think that could potentially set it up for maybe a few more upsets because the home teams aren't going to get those close calls or those loose ball call fouls that they would typically get.
00:29:37
When it's just human nature for these refs to get really influenced by guests, the crowd of the madness of some of these buildings, you just get stuck up in the moment.
00:29:50
It's not gonna happen here.
00:29:54
Yeah, and that's like you see, like guys getting.
00:29:58
I think Tatum got a tech, he said, and he said he was talking to himself, and a lot of people, like I think I'm no foods.
00:30:05
Jalen Rose, one of these guys said, like he wouldn't have gotten that second.
00:30:09
There was a crowd of the building right, cause he wouldn't wouldn't available here right no self said some **** in the rest only really didn't even really hear it Right now.
00:30:16
It's like they're gonna hear everything.
00:30:19
And, you know, I'm surprised that, like, I don't know if you viewers watch the Milwaukee Brooklyn game yesterday like watching pieces of it like I I should have been doing my day job, but I was watching pieces of it.
00:30:31
Yeah, Robin Lopez complains more than anyone I've ever seen.
00:30:36
And he likes stocks, the refs.
00:30:37
And I'm like, how is this dude not getting a technical And like Tatum gets attacked for mumbling some **** to himself like right and thank Gordon got the attack when he got called for an offensive foul.
00:30:48
That was not an offensive foul.
00:30:50
Yeah, you did kind of earn that tech because, I mean, he was including animated like That's more so a bad play by Gordon like, and that's that's an issue that actually I wanted to bring up with just the team as a whole because, like even before the bubble, like every team, no matter who you are, you have issues.
00:31:13
What, you guys don't get the calls, they just don't go your way.
00:31:16
Randomness Aban flow home away, you name it.
00:31:19
This is always just just some games where it's not your night with the with the calls and this team.
00:31:26
Let's that bottle of them more than most teams.
00:31:28
I think Stevens did make a comment of it that pre game today, and he just made it like a point to mention that, you know, the we just got to control what we can control was like, and that's that's that.
00:31:42
That's a knock on the team like you're letting relating the refs affect how you play.
00:31:47
And you know you can't You can't do that because because the refs, they're gonna be the rest regardless, like there's gonna be games where you get the cause is going to games where you don't get the calls.
00:31:58
But like, you know, just got it.
00:32:01
Control what you can control.
00:32:02
If you don't get the call, just go back on C like you know, what's he gonna do, right? And the one that really sticks out to me in uh in the last couple of games since they've been in Orlando was the goaltending call that wasn't against Milwaukee in the first game.
00:32:20
I think it was Hayward and, like, he background a mid range jumper, and the honest and Lopez were both under the basket, so I can't remember which one actually went up and got it.
00:32:28
But someone went up and pulled it right out of the cellar, and it was clear as day that it should have been goaltending and they didn't call it and, like three guys on a team turned around and threw their arms out to the raft like you would see, like at the wire And, like, you know, like, I can't even I can't even think of the name like, you know, like it like a kid's league.
00:32:47
Yeah, stuff that you just can't do on the pros.
00:32:50
And it can even lucky a chance in, ah, in transition.
00:32:54
And I can't remember if they scored.
00:32:56
But if you have the opportunity, gave them numbers going down the court in a game that you had a fight like hell to get back into, and it just Ah, you can't do that.
00:33:09
And in a in the playoffs, when all of these games are a lot of these Ian's gonna come down to No wonder true possessions you can you give one away because you didn't like the call, like, all right, you got screwed. You lost the possession.
00:33:23
What's not turning into two lost possessions? Yeah.
00:33:28
I mean, they're doing a good job of not letting to doing a good job tonight.
00:33:33
At least 20 at the half.
00:33:35
Yeah.
00:33:37
Um how's around? Oh, yeah.
00:33:40
Top two plus minus is today Gordon Hayward.
00:33:42
I plus 22 gets Whose second? Um, Romania.
00:33:48
Langford room.
00:33:49
Your length plus 21 Achieved.
00:33:51
I looked it up.
00:33:53
He's only played 13 minutes.
00:33:55
Yeah, and, um, I that's great to see my mea dot com box score keeps on refreshing and moving all of my stuff that I have sorted.
00:34:05
But, um, just did it again and all right, So yeah, Romeo's played 13 minutes and here's kind of my concern with him.
00:34:14
He's a He was a great defender.
00:34:17
He looks like a lock down defender like already in the week.
00:34:20
And but tonight, 13 minutes, one for three from the field.
00:34:26
He's got four point means he is not showing much of anything on the offense event, so that alone is fine, and I think he will get there because I think he's going to be a really good player.
00:34:40
He's got a tonic potential and really, this is a lost season for him because he's missed so much time where he could have you have been getting some some minutes in games, whether it's garbage timer, um, filling in for injuries or what have you like? He could be so much better right now if he had just had the chance to play.
00:34:58
So I'm not counting amount by any means.
00:35:00
But right now for this season, like he's a specialist, he's a guy who's gonna come in and hopefully get get a stop or slow a run down or something like that.
00:35:09
He's You can't rely on him to score and that stuff because he was their top draft pick in this past draft.
00:35:18
They're a team that showed on the banks.
00:35:19
We already talked about a little bit earlier, and they just don't have that scoring punch off the bank.
00:35:23
So, uh, I don't know if I want to say I'm not discouraged by his progression, but like we got a guest, understand, like for this season, like it is what it is with Romeo, like he's a defensive stopper.
00:35:38
And he's he's not going to contribute much on the on the offensive end because the game is just not polished.
00:35:45
Especially like at the N B A level.
00:35:47
Oh, we're gonna have to wait, I think, until next year to see see that out of him, would you? Little off topic since we're going up at the half.
00:35:58
But what do you think about Kendrick Perkins, the ****yst? Did you think if this was 2000 and nine and I was and I was to look at the whole something rust and I would say out of all these guys, Kendrick Perkins is gonna be the one that's gonna be the biggest sports media have personality out of all these guys? Wow, not a chance.
00:36:19
I never heard him say a word when he was Scalia on that team.
00:36:24
You know, not because I'm so bad with numbers of years, but like, I would have picked scout because, like, you can see Scala's personality, he lights up the room every time he walks in.
00:36:34
So, like, you know, like that new is going to be in the media.
00:36:36
Uh, Perkins like God, no, it gets have that angry scowl.
00:36:41
And he, just like he has destroyed people like, is like they had a defensive tackle playing basketball for them, and they somehow, somehow the league allowed it and to see, like the personality come out and and yeah, he says Aton of stupid stuff.
00:36:55
But like, he's got this meeting, the game kind of figured out in a said that he says it with conviction.
00:37:03
And if you disagree with him, it's the ****ing West thing ever, right? No, right when you see a big guy like that scowling get Oh, yeah, I okay, maybe, Yeah, it's like I get it like he says Stupid stuff.
00:37:20
And I'm even at the point where, like, I know that he doesn't believe everything he says he can't like.
00:37:27
He he knows too much about the game to say some of the stuff that he says.
00:37:31
But you see the success of guys like Nick, right? And guys like Skip Bayliss who just say the stupid **** comment calling Cowherd is another one like they don't believe this stuff.
00:37:44
They're playing characters, their characters on TV, they're borderline actors.
00:37:50
But if they say something stupid, people retweet their video and say, Hey, look at this idiot.
00:37:55
And then when you click on that video, you get that five second ad first and now they have add revenue.
00:37:59
So if someone broke down, you know the perfect pick and roll.
00:38:04
And I told you why someone scored on this basket.
00:38:07
Nobody's watching that video.
00:38:08
But if somebody says, Hey, Michael Jordan would score 15 points a game in today's MBA because bigger, stronger, faster.
00:38:14
Everyone's gonna click on that e.
00:38:17
I hope somewhere trips out just that part of you, but not but nothing After that.
00:38:24
Let's go 15 points a game Because of you, it's biggest.
00:38:28
You might go for it.
00:38:29
I retweeted Rifugio.
00:38:35
Yeah, yeah, just make sure you kind of the because the if is a big part.
00:38:41
But which one gets more hits? And these guys all have figured out because like it's a business, it's not.
00:38:47
No, it's not educational.
00:38:50
Um, sure, there's always stuff to be learned from watching these shows or listening to these shows, but it's entertainment and a business first and foremost and like hurt women that really fast? Yeah.
00:39:03
You got the blooper. Yeah.
00:39:05
Yeah, he's got it figured out.
00:39:06
So He's just like sitting on a pile of money right now.
00:39:11
I'm sure that's a little uncomfortable because it's not really all that soft.
00:39:14
But he was sitting on a pile of cash and it's just like, what can I say tomorrow to get a pile of cash? He's waited for one of these.
00:39:23
Would major guys contract to run out so he could get that because he's a he's jumping around everywhere.
00:39:31
I see him on every platform he's on seen on ESPN.
00:39:34
He's been on Fox before.
00:39:36
He comes on the local NBC sports all the time, so he's everywhere, so you have basically free.
00:39:43
He's a few, is a free agent, just thinking of anything, Get so whenever it's time for a contract, someone like Kelemen might be up for anybody.
00:39:54
I don't know if he's getting that, because right now he's like he's a basketball specialist and okay, he's got a lot of work to Dio.
00:40:02
Before we become like someone who does multiple sports, you become like a jack of all trades kind of guy.
00:40:11
Stephen A. Smith.
00:40:12
Although Stephen A.
00:40:13
Smith wasn't a player, so it's a little different.
00:40:14
Stephen A.
00:40:15
Smith was a basketball guy forever and Box Calendar was a boxing guy.
00:40:19
And he is still when people don't even really know this because I just seeing him as like the guy who's always Stephen A Smith talking about all of this random stuff.
00:40:26
But he is one of the great boxing ****ysts in the world, like he was unbelievable with boxing, so it's got some time before he jumps into one of those roles.
00:40:37
But, like, I wouldn't be shocked if we saw him on like A T and T show or something like that or some sort of the other three in show.
00:40:48
He's gonna get a really good gig, and he's already getting some good gigs.
00:40:52
And, oh, I don't I off a lot of people him to where he hates Park because they take his stuff too seriously.
00:41:01
Like it.
00:41:02
That's what they want, that Yeah, and like I enjoy it because like, he's gonna be.
00:41:08
He's got that big personality.
00:41:09
He's, you know, he's an entertaining guy.
00:41:11
He helped us win a championship, which, you know, God bless your work.
00:41:17
You know, I always make a point to not take the stuff too seriously, and I try to carry that, like into our show to, like, you know, I'm not going to be the guy who gets mad because someone disagrees with me on an opinion on a play, right? More so, just like that, it's a game.
00:41:37
Let's enjoy it.
00:41:38
Let's have fun because you throw the headphones, right? Yeah, I feel the headphones through the screen.
00:41:46
Um, my TV that I have tilted over a little bit so I could watch it with my sweet, little stupid here background.
00:41:52
I got going to my two favorite Celtics player.
00:41:55
There's a wall time, um, and you know, maybe knock that TV off because it's a little bit.
00:41:59
It's not quite teetering, but it's, like, not all the way on the bureau either.
00:42:04
So fingers crossed that, you know, it makes it to the end of this game what we're doing.
00:42:10
Okay.
00:42:11
I think I like the cat out.
00:42:12
So you do you know all those up again? What do you know that Olu is up again in the draft kings.
00:42:20
Uh, I mean, it doesn't surprise me because he's up 18 but he has no more guys left.
00:42:25
So someone's gonna be no.
00:42:27
Then my cell in dead last cause.
00:42:28
Like, I got everybody who saw that you won't. 72.
00:42:33
Okay, We'll have better than the 1 11 we have.
00:42:35
What? We went on the air, so I'm in fifth, but loose.
00:42:38
Officially had 31 to me.
00:42:41
Oh, who I got, like, 20 and it out.
00:42:42
Anthony Davis wanting to out of and seven.
00:42:45
You had seconds to allow.
00:42:46
So, yeah, Simmons Porter.
00:42:48
I had Porter Porter gonna be 53.
00:42:53
I had I had hot Kimora who I texted you in the fourth quarter and was like, He's having a Dante Cunningham game.
00:43:00
And, you know, if you don't follow our pot, I'll throw up Dante Cunningham's name every once in a while because he's Yeah, I had Goose.
00:43:08
She's been playing what they like.
00:43:10
He socks, right? No, that I think the numbers like he's not.
00:43:14
I know he's not that good.
00:43:16
I don't like him.
00:43:17
A supplier like he's used just an adequate player who's got so much **** hype around them that it makes me think he sucks, right? But like, he's been putting up some okay numbers for the cost, and it's like, ****, he was single digits tonight wasn't he? It's not a big deal.
00:43:34
Like he he hurt me.
00:43:36
Let's just say that he 10 points.
00:43:38
Three boards, two threes.
00:43:40
Okay, So he did better than the last time I checked.
00:43:42
Like I was just so far behind him, like, All right, let's just check tomorrow because it's but yeah, so god****, I don't even know what the hell I was talking about.
00:43:52
I lost it. Yeah.
00:43:54
I mean, still still have time, I think the next commercial, the last one.
00:43:59
All right.
00:44:00
Oh, I think they took a point off the seas because now it's only a 19 point lead.
00:44:05
Still, you know what it was that they get Dad Hayward for three, and they must have took it out.
00:44:11
Does know what? He has one.
00:44:16
And, uh, I want to see how many.
00:44:18
How much How much minutes? The starters they're gonna get in the second half of Tatum o me at six minutes. Three files.
00:44:25
Yeah, he got he picked up two real fast ls before.
00:44:30
Yeah, before That was before we even know.
00:44:32
Actually really jumped on for the start of the second quarter.
00:44:34
So he him picked up to in the first couple of minutes of the game, and it was just one of those things where I'm like, oh, crap or they're gonna let this get away from him again.
00:44:43
Um, just because we know that Campbell was out and you know what? Take them having Teoh Probably take short minutes.
00:44:51
You're like, Well, Brooklyn's not good.
00:44:53
They're missing some of their top guys.
00:44:55
Like for the entire obviously know Katie.
00:44:57
No, no, Kyrie also know Dinwiddie.
00:45:00
But, um, you know, there's there's a couple of players on that team and if they play like they did last night on the perimeter, like Joe Harris, we're gonna like them up like Duncan Robinson did.
00:45:09
So the first couple of minutes, I was like, Oh, crap like, are they going to let this get away? And then now we're suddenly not so locked into that three spot.
00:45:18
But, uh, you know, now they're looking at, like they're at a point where they can kind of coast and you don't want to get to care.
00:45:25
You too.
00:45:26
Careful here, But you don't want to get too complacent.
00:45:29
Rather, you want to be somewhat careful.
00:45:31
But it's a good time, Teoh, maybe what tinplate play a couple more minutes to stay sharp because he really did need it because he struggled at the start of this reboot.
00:45:44
But like it's a good time to give.
00:45:46
Hey wouldn't extend addressed and maybe give Jalen a little bit of time off.
00:45:50
Market smart.
00:45:51
Got it last night so he can go ahead and employ it quite a few minutes the rest of the way.
00:45:57
You know, C c.
00:45:58
Langford out there may be.
00:45:59
See, s you want to make you get a bunch of minutes.
00:46:01
Used to make Celtics where to go mad.
00:46:03
And I want to see some vigilante because I love watching Devante.
00:46:08
He's just he's just an entertaining player, and I know he's He is what he is, right? He's a He's a bottom of the roster kind of guy, but monomer officer kind of guy who can jump out of the building like that's fun.
00:46:20
I definitely a much about the fan as well.
00:46:23
He's he's an explosive player, and you don't have yeah, and he's probably going to be one of the odd man out next year next year, but I hope they find a way whether to keep him while There are other young guys who are higher potential because he's been kicking around trying to get in the league after college for a few years.
00:46:47
So he's a little within some of these guys and the couple of Turkey's will have coming in next year.
00:46:52
Chill.
00:46:53
I still I hope that he's one of the guys who could stick.
00:46:58
That could be potentially like an Avalanche situation where you know, in the league.
00:47:02
But it just can't be here because we just don't have a squad.
00:47:08
And you know what? That Memphis who knows what we could get out from that.
00:47:11
We get into the lottery pick.
00:47:12
I mean, that's another quality player coming into the team.
00:47:16
I was thinking of this, though, with the players that they have already not even a draft and stash lead do we kind of hope that they hit a lot of wins? It doesn't convey till next year.
00:47:30
It would help.
00:47:31
The roster problem if they want to keep at all of you guys is gonna make the playoffs.
00:47:37
You don't know that the West is pretty watch.
00:47:39
They're still loaded.
00:47:40
Look at Phoenix, right? Phoenix, Portland and Phoenix, like Phoenix, is gonna be a problem next year.
00:47:48
It getting a lot better between Booker and Eaten.
00:47:52
Another presumably good draft pick like that team has been on fire Global.
00:47:58
They have a chance to make the play with a lot of teams.
00:48:00
That what if more than one teams finishes within the four games, it will be the top two with 89 I don't know what happens if they tie.
00:48:11
I don't know what happens if there's a time for nine.
00:48:13
Knicks is making an interest.
00:48:16
Yes, Phoenix is making it really interesting.
00:48:18
Like San Antonio is making an interest in Memphis is making an interesting to buy losing all these games.
00:48:22
So you got it.
00:48:25
And New Orleans is still there, so there are kind of teams who can take.
00:48:30
We're gonna have a claim to this last spot, and it's These teams are gonna fall off the map this year.
00:48:43
Let's see what happens.
00:48:44
Oh, yeah, it up.
00:48:46
Okay.
00:48:51
I was kind of hoping when you said that, that it would be Williams because he probably still be in the Yeah, and missed a dunk.
00:49:02
Maybe I'm being a little luck there on on him, but now that's That's not a heat check. That's a good shot.
00:49:14
OK, there he a screen for an open three in the way that he's been hit.
00:49:20
I'm like, Yeah, you always take that shot.
00:49:22
That's an open three.
00:49:26
Oh, yeah, that's crazy.
00:49:29
That is absolutely crazy.
00:49:31
Like Thais gets nothing.
00:49:35
It's like there's a league wide memo warned around that, like if 27 on the Celtics gets hit, it won't care.
00:49:42
I still can't believe they didn't call that flagrant on at least file on Janice.
00:49:47
Yeah, and got something happened last night to UM oh, they he said the ball.
00:49:54
And he threw it like right off of someone on Miami.
00:49:57
And it went out of Bonds and it clearly hit the baseline.
00:50:01
And then it hits Heights who was laying down out of bounds.
00:50:02
And, of course, they're called out on Tyson.
00:50:04
They had to review it and fix it and fix the call, and then they immediately turned it over.
00:50:09
But like even stuff like that, like anything near Thais like he doesn't get the call.
00:50:17
Ever.
00:50:18
It's even know Paul or it's just I'm getting right like that.
00:50:24
He'll get called for a foul on stuff that nobody.
00:50:26
It feels like nobody else in the league gets called for like and I know that's that's a little bit of hyperbole.
00:50:32
But like this, what I Daniel Tyson gets like, gets no benefit of the doubt from anybody.
00:50:44
Yeah, he doesn't, he doesn't.
00:50:47
And that's been one of that's been one of Danny's best signings.
00:50:51
Think Yeah, it has.
00:50:53
Can came in last year.
00:50:55
And he was just, you know, kind of a body in the back of the roster kind of guy.
00:51:00
And you did more than like Cory did this year.
00:51:05
Yeah, he came at the start of the season.
00:51:07
He was kind of like what party was at the start of this season? I just got that.
00:51:14
They're in better and better, and I camp.
00:51:16
He really, really made a run for the starting job, and we talked about it like in our season preview podcast where, like Thais could start the season as the starter.
00:51:27
And it was at that time still like a pretty big upset that he was going to get that job when you were gonna play some big minutes.
00:51:33
But it like it was a pretty big upset that He was gonna be the guy at the at the center position and he got it.
00:51:40
And then from there he was just got better and better.
00:51:43
Like he's a lot better now than he was in October.
00:51:46
Is that when he seals off the off the pick and roll and you see like, Hey, does it a lot for Hayward? Smart Kemba.
00:51:54
Well, just go ahead of the guard, seal the big off and then all those guys just get a lay it that, like, I think he's best in the league at that.
00:52:03
Like, I don't see too many guys doing doing seal better than him.
00:52:08
Oh, yeah, he's great at it.
00:52:09
I mean, I hesitate to say best in the leaning, but e just thinking so yourself.
00:52:16
This guy, it's all right. No, it's fine.
00:52:18
It's fine. We're something show.
00:52:19
So it's OK, Um, you know, I don't have random team thing.
00:52:22
And behind me, I got to Celtics behind me, and I got a Celtics jersey on now, so way try to see it down the middle, but like it's not always gonna go that way.
00:52:32
Speaking of amazing, he's been amazing, beautiful, amazing and good into because Garden has been the driving kick from Gordon has been so on point.
00:52:50
Yes, he's just He's a great player.
00:52:53
He was what they paid for.
00:52:55
And there's still people out there saying that when she traded him for drumming, which is insane, But time out.
00:53:05
What the hell happened? Oh, they call, OK, because I seem room all the time out. Time out.
00:53:11
And I'm still seeing the Celtics rotate the ball like what happened? Who got hurt like O J J ones down.
00:53:17
But, uh, yeah, so but, man, that was some beautiful bob woman to like.
00:53:24
It's yeah, as a little brown side, like starting to come together.
00:53:29
Uh, eso Hopefully, uh, you know, it's It's not just that they're playing against really, really low competition.
00:53:38
It's the second probably the second best team in the bubble after Washington.
00:53:42
Washington, without Beale and Berrick kinds is just an absolute joke.
00:53:47
Um, it's probably the second worst team who's in here.
00:53:51
They just beat Milwaukee, but they did.
00:53:53
Yeah, but they beat Milwaukee with 16 minutes from the honest and Middleton and that that team is very top heavy, though, and they didn't play their top couple of guys so and your credit to Brooklyn for for fighting through that.
00:54:09
Like, they played really well.
00:54:11
And they, you know, they played hard.
00:54:12
And good things happen when you play that hard.
00:54:14
But, um, you know, they didn't beat the best.
00:54:17
Didn't take Milwaukee's best shot either, but ended they actually they didn't have all of their guys even earlier.
00:54:27
It's 70 at the half.
00:54:29
Yeah, Geo za in ****ing Kerekes and some guy named Martin just their backup point guard.
00:54:36
Like I don't even know these guys, right? Who are these guys? Yes.
00:54:43
Yeah, yeah, that's the one.
00:54:45
Mitchell Friedman, About 1%.
00:54:48
Because only 1% of gonna get that joke off then.
00:54:58
Yeah, yeah, but, um, I'm hoping that it's it's really the Celtics coming together and playing while I'm starting to gel, shaking off the rust as opposed to them.
00:55:11
Just playing a really bad team.
00:55:12
It's probably a bit of both, especially because, like, they're missing come back.
00:55:18
And we saw that, like Kendrick played short minutes and got in the foul trouble.
00:55:23
So, um, but it's everything just looks like it's in sync better than it has for any of their other games.
00:55:34
This sense, they've been back.
00:55:37
It's actually last night.
00:55:38
Last night was just a disaster.
00:55:42
Last night was bad.
00:55:43
That was just just bad basketball.
00:55:46
It was just unpleasant to watch.
00:55:48
Yeah, I mean, the last couple of minutes, just the shot.
00:55:51
So again, we're just like it's going on here.
00:55:54
They started.
00:55:56
They started depressed.
00:55:57
They fell back by a little bit too much at the end, and then they were just like winning.
00:56:00
23 We need a three and they were taken bad threes instead of trying to get you easy to use, which more available, cut on the lead a little bit.
00:56:10
That's hated.
00:56:11
Three is just I mean, I'm watching the local solution a couple of Celtic replays and at Tatum side, Step three, You can't block that.
00:56:20
You just did it in his face like let's all longer.
00:56:25
Yeah, that's a however got to do that in his face.
00:56:27
You to like. That's up.
00:56:29
That's a that's a great that's Ah, yeah, that's a great player that he did that too.
00:56:35
The, uh, the BNP was actually you're showing taco.
00:56:39
So, um, thank you.
00:56:42
He's not just a rock star here.
00:56:46
No, uniform.
00:56:47
No, he's not.
00:56:49
You know, the one thing I do like about the bubble also is the camera guys not being right under the hoop.
00:56:56
Because how many guys you see just sprain their ankles or just fall into the freaking camera guy and, like, hit their head off a camera, right? Yeah, it's It's like and how it gives guys space that it should always be like that.
00:57:10
Yeah, it's It's dangerous for the players.
00:57:12
And it's dangerous for the camera guys, too.
00:57:14
Yeah, right.
00:57:15
Like those guys are happens right there getting bowled over by, like, the largest humans you've ever seen.
00:57:22
Yeah, and now I gotta watch this play.
00:57:25
**** it all Haven't dio thinking stole Daniel? I thought it was gonna be on Alan, but it definitely wasn't on that one.
00:57:37
Well, that's the second time I've seen this market caught back to about Tyler Johnson from Jared Allen.
00:57:42
Oh, that's not good.
00:57:44
Like, come on, markets like you're better than that.
00:57:48
Well, I mean, not voting on all defensive from the bubble, so trilogy Oh, again Another one.
00:57:57
I missed it at a bounce.
00:57:59
No, I thought you give it to his face.
00:58:03
No, I once got that quite.
00:58:05
Bonds, though, doesn't doesn't quite have that yet.
00:58:10
Not they tried again.
00:58:14
Good job. Smart.
00:58:16
Oh, Jesus.
00:58:21
May if they look, if they let me play old albums travel that was you if they would have let me get away with that gathered back when I was playing like some, you know, high competition basketball like, I think I would have been a lot better player.
00:58:38
Yeah, life would have been a lot easier because they're getting away with that extra step in.
00:58:43
Listen, back in the day, you could only take one of those steps.
00:58:48
I think one everyone.
00:58:50
You could not play in a pick up game at the park without eight people calling, traveling right or from the other team and four from the baseline like, What is this now? We don't play like that around, so now that they let guys get away with that extra step, I think it's helped.
00:59:10
It's helped out a lot of a lot of players and just expanded game.
00:59:13
So much more like, I think it's a you know, and I think it's a good thing for basketball.
00:59:19
You want more scared.
00:59:20
I don't I don't hate it, it's Ah, it adds another element to the game and I I still go back and watch old games all the time when we didn't have basketball like all I was watching was like old basketball games not super old, but like stuff that we watched growing up like stuff from the nineties and even that looks a hell of a lot different.
00:59:39
I want a few things from like the seven easiest cause we did the Mount Rushmore project, so I had to watch like or me diet were in.
00:59:48
If you told me in January that I was going to be watching film on Jacque segment so I could do a podcast about him.
00:59:53
I don't know what I would have said to you, but I would not have said I believe you.
00:59:59
So I was watching himself the like to talk about like some of those guys that we were talking about, and it's it's good fun to watch, but it's it's almost a different sport.
01:00:13
Yeah, it is.
01:00:14
It definitely is.
01:00:15
I mean, you know, I don't what you want to say, that the guys are more athletic because I don't think they really that much more athletic than they were back then.
01:00:22
But I just think it's everyone's so much more skilled in like yes, you know, skilled and especially in their rules.
01:00:32
Like I think more guys back then, it might have been more all around skills.
01:00:36
The guys now like they'll find their role, and that's what they'll get. Hammer.
01:00:41
Yeah, you guys become sharpshooters.
01:00:44
So, like, all right, this guy's like, you know it as the passing point guard with, you know, really good handle, and that's what he'll be.
01:00:51
He's ****ing that you can't take the ball from them like a lot more guys like that.
01:00:55
But and the soup, like the guys that are like, you know, I think Fred VanVleet is a perfect example of a guy that just I think you're seeing more guys, like get better sooner than you did back in the day that I got back in the day.
01:01:11
Then it was also like, you know, some guy will leave and all right, this is your opportunity with Van Fleet.
01:01:17
He kind of was making that jump last year while I was still there.
01:01:21
And this year him and see how come just seemed like they took, You know, they're taking jumps that I remember seeing you know, back in the day, Too much.
01:01:31
Yeah.
01:01:32
What I think part of the reason for that that was We remember guys back and back.
01:01:38
And when we say back in the day, we think, like, you know, the nineties for the most part, when we were kids watching the game, learning the gas and player state in college longer.
01:01:47
So you know, a You have guys like Jerry Stackhouse came into the league and averaged 20 points right away.
01:01:54
And he wasn't rookie of the year.
01:01:57
He came out after his union year, so he made that jump in college, right? And then he comes to the pros and he's ready to play.
01:02:05
Kevin Garnett made that jump because Garnett came straight from high school, and I think he only averaged 10 in his closet.
01:02:14
Smart.
01:02:15
Oh, that's that is in charge.
01:02:19
Are you kidding me? They didn't show the replay on local.
01:02:22
They kind of just went to the time out to me.
01:02:25
Looked like he was there.
01:02:26
It looked like he was outside and they went right to commercial on National to he that looked 100% like a charge.
01:02:34
We will see that he he was shuffling his feet when they showed the replay.
01:02:37
But, like instinctively, that looked like a charge.
01:02:40
But if you want stuff with that guy on the Nets looked like he was a little bit out of control anyway.
01:02:46
So I don't think it's really maybe maybe, maybe it's a NBA two k rules, and there are no charges called Ever ive still yet to see one.
01:02:56
This Stephen Yeah, once you mentioned it to me, I'm like, ****! Like I played my whole I think I played like 35 games in my franchise and I don't remember seeing one.
01:03:10
I've seen a couple of moving screens and a couple of loose ball fouls, like on the offensive team after it got and and that's it.
01:03:17
I've never seen a charge called for me or against me, but like I was saying about Garnett, Garnett made that jump because he came into the league of the rookie and her out right out of high school.
01:03:29
And I think he averaged 10 points a game his rookie year.
01:03:33
And then he made that jump.
01:03:35
You know a year later, two years later, Um, actually, really, both.
01:03:40
And, uh, I took him a little bit more time to become a superstar.
01:03:44
Jermaine O'Neal did the same thing because he came out of high school.
01:03:46
But we used to see a lot of guys a lot more.
01:03:49
Rookies make impact making impact right away because they were more polished.
01:03:54
They were older.
01:03:56
They were bigger, stronger.
01:03:57
They grew into their bodies who never heard of a guy getting drafted and then hearing like, Oh, well, he's gonna grow a couple more inches.
01:04:07
Yeah, because these guys were all getting drafted at 2122 years old.
01:04:11
It wasn't like he honest when they're like, Yeah, he's he's a freak of nature.
01:04:14
He's, Ah, you know Ah, crazy, ridiculous athlete like none we've ever seen.
01:04:18
And, oh, by the way, she's probably getting a bigger and he did, like, you don't see that, and I think I mentioned to see before, but I've been a proponent of guys getting I do think guys, it's still coming in the league too early.
01:04:33
Not just that they're not that this skills aren't ready.
01:04:35
I just think their bodies are ready, especially at that age where you haven't experience in NBC's in the grind of the travel, the constant, the constant travel like the constant games like You're playing 82 games, where the most you played in the season of any kind of organized Bowlby like 40 and the same time.
01:04:54
It's like you're putting a lot of words and how you got these kids, though, who are playing like they're playing high school ball in and they're playing for travel teams and they're playing in multiple leagues.
01:05:05
It's totally different.
01:05:07
100.
01:05:08
It's right.
01:05:09
And that's the big difference is you're going against grown men who have been, you know, they're one job is to work on their body No.
01:05:18
8 to 12 hours a day.
01:05:20
And you got kids essentially that the kids coming into the league office robbery what, six months off that you know, lifting like that for six months and I send and they keep themselves in shape and training training hard.
01:05:37
But there's only limited time that you can put into it, and in college and high schooler, where you're coming from it, that's taking your career.
01:05:45
So like I've always been a proponent of teams being able to draft a guy.
01:05:50
But you know them taking over, whether it's paying the player or taking over the scholarship or doing whatever.
01:05:57
Just have the rights to the player.
01:05:59
But let him develop still in college, you know, and get that.
01:06:04
You know, hockey does not.
01:06:06
Yeah, and I love that rule because it just gives guys a chance to let their bodies developed.
01:06:11
But already having that security where you're with the team, you're not, you know, saying you're good.
01:06:17
You don't have to worry about impressing draft scouts or anything like right, this got you, and then any time you know, if they feel it's ready, they'll pull.
01:06:24
You know they'll take you, but yeah, we'll bring it to the team.
01:06:28
But with hockey, we're talking.
01:06:31
They're not paying them, are taking their contracts or anything.
01:06:33
They're just they're not signing.
01:06:35
It's been a real until a particular time, and I'm not sure exactly how it works.
01:06:42
Like the noble baseball, you can go into the professional ranks minor leagues first, right after high school.
01:06:53
But if you don't and you go to college, you have to stay in college for three years.
01:06:56
I don't remember what the rule is for hockey if they have to stay for three years or anything like that.
01:07:01
But, like freshmen get drafted all the time and then they go back to college in the play.
01:07:05
Yeah, right, Right.
01:07:07
So I think, you know, and you see any with guys like for, like, even guys we're seeing, Like Marvin Bagley, Jonathan, Isaac, guys that are supremely skilled there, definitely.
01:07:18
You've got the skills to play in this league, but just that their bodies don't seem that, you know, I'm ready for it, right? You know, that's how that's how you get.
01:07:29
The better players in the league is this. They develop.
01:07:32
And if you know you're rushing even like you're telling me, like a guy like Romeo length for you couldn't have used in the year two in college, like the Polish like absolutely.
01:07:40
But the way it turned out is like it was injury issues with him so he wouldn't play anyway.
01:07:47
So it But he was He was injured in his freshman year of college.
01:07:51
He got drafted freshman year.
01:07:53
He wouldn't have, you know, he wouldn't have felt like he needed to play through that injury, right? You played from the through the injury for basically from his first month.
01:08:01
So the end of the college, it and then at that effect, that basically made his his rookie season hair a wash because he actually needed to recover from the injury.
01:08:11
Um, so I think it would definitely help, But what? We up 28.
01:08:18
Oh, yeah.
01:08:19
We needed a game like this.
01:08:21
Yeah.
01:08:22
Ah, game where they can just coast not worry about anything down the stretch rest some guys, cause yeah, they just had a ton of time off.
01:08:28
But you're playing a lot of games in a really short period of time.
01:08:32
So, yeah, so you can if you're top guys like we, doctor, about a little bit earlier.
01:08:41
I give you top guys a little bit of a break here and just cut their minutes a little bit.
01:08:45
And let's get a look at these kids.
01:08:49
I also much at the same time, though, like, I still think we need to work out some back into basketball shape like it spend the four months off and told me to of those months, these dudes didn't really do anything.
01:09:02
If they didn't have equipment in their house like they want.
01:09:06
You know, I'm sure like they were keeping a shape, but not basketball, right? Like freedom.
01:09:12
Didn't have a group at his house and way kind of laughed it off.
01:09:16
I got high.
01:09:17
I didn't have a rupees.
01:09:18
You get who? You know what? Pro doesn't have a hope.
01:09:20
Uh oh.
01:09:21
He'll be.
01:09:22
He'll be fine.
01:09:23
He's Jayson Tatum.
01:09:24
When we were about that, he comes back and he was terrible And, like, four games, like screaming, unstable, right? And wasn't good and knows he wasn't good against Milwaukee.
01:09:36
And then it was at the 0.
01:09:37
1 game where you started playing Well, yeah.
01:09:41
Yeah.
01:09:43
So it took him a little while to get back into it.
01:09:46
Send. And that's really the case.
01:09:48
But with a lot of these guys across the league, which is, I think, potentially reason why was he in some really weird results here, like, Oh, yeah.
01:09:55
Scenic speeding, speeding up the clippers? Yep.
01:09:59
Obviously, yesterday I think it was the 3rd 3rd block by block. There we go.
01:10:05
Yeah, show a little something.
01:10:06
I'll go in.
01:10:07
No, not even close.
01:10:09
They didn't have the two K animation where it automatically gets through him, though I know I did mix the hoop yesterday on on a last minute shock.
01:10:15
So he was the first time I had ever seen that Karim from, like, 90%. Quite.
01:10:24
You gotta miss something.
01:10:25
Yeah, it like Mr Backboard and everything. I think it curved.
01:10:28
It looked like it curved. It was weird.
01:10:32
Maybe we should do this more so that's something.
01:10:34
Schooling by 30 right? Yeah.
01:10:38
Yeah.
01:10:39
And we're supposed to be talking about the game, but my team B is, like, over here, so I can't do this and watch that.
01:10:48
So, like, I've been kind of renewable show are really are normal show It has been a little different, but just like having a conversation about whatever comes along.
01:10:57
And I haven't seen a ton on the game, so I'm It may be a little unprepared for expired, but that zangbo so I'm not gonna initiate the task.
01:11:13
Section five heads if they want to record tonight a little much.
01:11:19
Well, I don't want Teoh.
01:11:22
We've been on here for an hour and a woman minutes, and, um I guess that no, I don't want to do it. What? We could do it tomorrow.
01:11:29
Like this game saddle.
01:11:30
Um, it's not over yet, either.
01:11:33
Well, like the game will have to be over for us to be able to talk about it fully.
01:11:37
Because some of the interesting stuff behind the scenes here, some really interesting stuff would being how these rookies Billy in the fourth quarter, because they're going to play.
01:11:47
So we're gonna want to talk about, you know, whether it's Williams or Romeo are Trey wanted to What is probably dressed for the game, right? Oh, thanks.
01:11:57
So I think, especially with with Kemba.
01:12:01
Not so I don't know.
01:12:06
I'm getting some no trade.
01:12:08
Trey is actually not listed here on the N b, a dot com site and this grand Williams and you want a green have not played a minute tonight.
01:12:16
So, um, sorry, Actually, Looks like he's he's not dressed.
01:12:21
Um, you know, grantee at Granton.
01:12:23
Geronzi.
01:12:24
Yeah.
01:12:25
So let's see some of them I want to see drink is, uh, grants.
01:12:31
Not really producing on the offensive end.
01:12:33
He was doing a lot of the little things.
01:12:34
He's kind of that that grit and grind kind of guy, and he's done a lot of good things in in a limited working in his first year.
01:12:42
But, uh, yeah, he could definitely benefit from having some offensive touches.
01:12:47
And he showed a little bit of that against Houston in the last scrimmage game, where he had a nice little turnaround jumper and you made a couple of shots that we didn't know he had in the bag.
01:12:56
But, uh, we could definitely benefit a lot because he was a guy who I think with his strength, toughness and defensive skill set like I think what? We're going to see him a little bit in the playoffs.
01:13:07
So you don't want to have someone coming in who is just a total liability on the offensive end.
01:13:13
So even if it's just a few reps in real games being real action, I won't see it.
01:13:19
Let's get him a few touches.
01:13:21
Yeah, I mean, now we're gonna hopefully we're gonna see it.
01:13:24
I was looking at some incoming texts from our draftkings leak and as of now, all those up five points.
01:13:33
But Meg's has Jaylen Brown.
01:13:36
Oh, it is gonna stay.
01:13:39
And who else is Jalen Brown's left? I have Jared Allen but I'm down 21.
01:13:49
So Jared Allen might not play smart out there.
01:13:54
Actually, semi smart Williams Romeo, according Gooden's throughout their smart I get cause he got from time off last night.
01:14:07
Did not playing defense because let us have a nice easy market for Bob again.
01:14:16
That's that's one thing that he came and give you use.
01:14:21
It was still and we really shouldn't be calling him wa in your through for him, right? U s o were still shouldn't be calling him right at this point.
01:14:32
But the fact is, he is still a raw player, and but he couldn't.
01:14:40
You could give you that that alley on the love that he just gave you end, you can give you that.
01:14:47
And a lot of other nobody else on the team really can.
01:14:49
So it does add an element, and they are going over the top to him there.
01:14:54
And there's a nice little finish like he's Ah, yeah, we can give you some of that like you trust him in the playoffs.
01:15:03
No, no, no. Absolutely not.
01:15:07
I don't trust him in the regular season either, and neither does Brad like he hasn't played and It's for a reason.
01:15:14
Oh, you know, he's He's got, like, slightly more trust than Taco in my book.
01:15:19
Like and I don't want taco anywhere near the playoffs.
01:15:24
New near a playoff game.
01:15:29
Why, there's maybe the time in a place for Williams in a certain situation.
01:15:35
And we saw him actually last night.
01:15:38
He got his first action of the games that counted in Orlando last night at the end.
01:15:44
He only got a few seconds thinking, but less than a minute.
01:15:46
But he was guarding an inbound pass, and he was just like, jumping up and down, making it difficult.
01:15:51
And I haven't seen it this season A lot, really, because when he then up with the Celtics, he's been inactive for the most part.
01:16:01
But I want to see Taco Fall doing that.
01:16:04
If you've got the room on the roster to do it and you want to make that imam past difficult, throw Chako right there.
01:16:10
Good luck.
01:16:11
Throw it over this guy and then get him the hell out of there right after that, which is essentially what they did with Williams.
01:16:19
I just want to see, like, a little bit of that, like some creative stuff, something that might just throw a team off and maybe make someone panic and throw it away or call a time out and burning time out. Then get talk.
01:16:28
A lot of their, um, give them that look.
01:16:31
But to do about, you got a bone, a roster spot on him because you've got the extra bodies.
01:16:38
But they're not all active for the games, so that's kind of where that doesn't really fit.
01:16:43
But it's It's something that, like I have been kind of hoping to see and in a regular season game in at least our plant, that Steve with somebody put on tape so that when teams scouting you and say, Hey, we might have to look for this, we might have to prepare for it And then, you know, maybe it's there.
01:17:01
Maybe it's not.
01:17:03
But I did like seeing Williams doing it because it was the best option they had at that, because he's just jumping up and down as high as he can.
01:17:09
Try and check this, not even get the ball, but just like make the past difficulty, you know, hopefully force a turnover on uh because they're like, Oh, crap and 1/2 seconds on it, and I just got a Harkin it all right, But I want to see something on the offensive end out of Romeo.
01:17:32
Nice little shot, though.
01:17:35
What is really still at Romeo still only got four points in 22 minutes in an absolute blowout game.
01:17:43
Um, you know, and and I just goes to like what I was saying earlier about him.
01:17:51
He's a defensive specialist at this stage in his career, and I think he will be better.
01:17:58
And I think he's gonna have a lot of room to grow.
01:18:01
But for this season, you're not getting too many points out of him.
01:18:07
Williams is really going to the ramp.
01:18:10
Roll it today.
01:18:12
Yeah, he's playing really well.
01:18:13
This is probably this is the best I've seen.
01:18:16
What do you think? Probably the best it's it is that the best is the best in a long time.
01:18:22
Yeah, and I mean, on the statute, it's probably gonna be the mast.
01:18:25
Anyway, He definitely has has at least two blocks that seem just a couple of it.
01:18:35
Yeah, he's got he's got three blocks.
01:18:38
He was five and he's got 15 points nice.
01:18:42
He was six for six from the field in three for three from the line.
01:18:45
So we want to see Yeah.
01:18:48
Yeah, you this.
01:18:49
And granted, this is against the second worst team in the bubbles backups.
01:18:53
So, like, don't take this as you know, all the Williams supporters out.
01:18:58
They don't take this as like and I told you so, Like, See, I told you he should be getting more minutes, but, like, take it as a positive silently here is showing a little something and gives them something to build on.
01:19:10
And hopefully we can get a chance.
01:19:13
Maybe in a game that doesn't really mean anything.
01:19:16
Later on, when they get officially locked into their spot, we can see you know, he was specifically, especially after a game like this, get some time against some better competition against maybe some starters, and let's see if you can do it again.
01:19:30
And then if you can Now we might have maybe a specialist or a change of pace.
01:19:34
Kaio are someone you can put in for in a matchup when Thais needs arrest and you just feel like you can't pour chanter in because of the defense of issues.
01:19:44
Although, I mean, Williams looks lost on defense, too.
01:19:48
So he gets the blocks, but he is consistently lost in imprecations, so yeah.
01:19:55
Oh, he does? Yeah, he's He's in the video. Campbell.
01:19:59
He was a video game stud.
01:20:00
Like you're that you're blocked shots, but you have jumping away from your man to try to get it and leaving guys, open it.
01:20:07
You know, it's just like you can do the big things, but he really struggles with the little things you need.
01:20:16
Those little things like, Yeah, exactly.
01:20:21
So we'll see.
01:20:23
But it's definitely you still only like 23 right? Super young.
01:20:29
Like the books not closed down and buy anything like you can't know.
01:20:33
When did he come out? Was it is for didn't come on after, especially year.
01:20:37
Did he stay a little longer? I want to say he was there for two years.
01:20:44
Um but I am not certain he is.
01:20:51
He was 22.
01:20:53
Yeah.
01:20:54
Way drafted him in 18.
01:20:56
This is his second season.
01:20:58
Yes.
01:20:59
So he had to be 20.
01:21:01
Honesty.
01:21:03
Two years, right? Yes.
01:21:04
Oh, you know these guys? Your toe? Our point earlier, when we were talking about the rookies Come in tow league like these guys were really young.
01:21:13
Yeah, And be a free agent after at the age of, like, 25.
01:21:18
24.
01:21:19
25 right? Like souls.
01:21:24
I don't think he would be done by then.
01:21:25
I mean, he doesn't have an injury, anything like that.
01:21:28
Like he still teen.
01:21:30
Someone's gonna take a flyer on him.
01:21:34
Yeah, and he's got enough time where, you know, we're still talking two years away, so if he grows a little bit like, you know, in the mental aspect of the game like, it might not even be a flyer.
01:21:46
You might have hack of a player by that point.
01:21:48
He's a time lord.
01:21:49
He has all the time he needs, right? You know, it took me, like, over a year to figure out why they call they call of time.
01:22:02
Ward was just like, Oh, that's cool name scope.
01:22:08
It actually hit me while we were more recording a podcast because, like, I think I can't remember who's I know.
01:22:17
Trey was involved, but someone had said something about him being you always being late or something that someone said, like, that's why they call them time.
01:22:25
What? I'm like, son of a *****.
01:22:27
That's why I just like I just got it.
01:22:29
Like I got it.
01:22:30
It's I kept that in through editing like that in the Bobcats somewhere.
01:22:34
Like while guys I could've posits because I just got the joke and the best conference like and you know how to set his alarm or whatever the hell it was like.
01:22:44
I know all of that.
01:22:45
I just never put it together. Yep.
01:22:47
You mean kind of like his grandma? Yes.
01:22:49
Yeah, yeah.
01:22:50
Well, Sophie's he puts that game together.
01:22:54
Yeah.
01:22:56
And, you know, like I said, it's ah positive tonight, but at the same time, like he's not putting it together.
01:23:03
He was doing his everything.
01:23:06
That is his strength tonight between like blocking shots and just going to the rim and and being super athletic.
01:23:13
So it's, um it shows what you can do with time against lesser competition.
01:23:22
Yeah, someone's coming in the game.
01:23:26
That bread.
01:23:30
Let's see some more, Brad.
01:23:34
Okay, I'm one of those.
01:23:35
Want to make it look like it was the second guy, too.
01:23:36
But he still had his T shirt on and my other way can I point out that it's kind of funny who that on the day when everyone was saying like, Why is Wanamaker playing too much? Why is he playing too much? That they finally put their names on the bottom of their jerseys along with their message top? And Wanamaker's wearing a jersey? It said, Enough one of acre? Yeah, on their separate for three.
01:24:09
No, really, Not even all that close.
01:24:14
Oh, let's move from the Nets.
01:24:20
That's a nice little take.
01:24:22
It was like, 00 is a bob.
01:24:29
No. Oh, God.
01:24:32
Well, that better going, Uh, if let me miss that, like he would market smartest steak.
01:24:42
Well, yeah, yeah, I got nothing on that.
01:24:45
You see? Wow, She can't just like taking to say lay on the What happened there changes like Dan.
01:24:56
It's like That's how I defend.
01:24:58
So who just came in red? And if you want a in there nice, get about 6 43 of Avanti.
01:25:11
Here we go.
01:25:12
Let's let's see some some highlight reel plays here.
01:25:15
Hopefully, good highlight reel, And yet we haven't seen a town of John Day throughout the year, but he does look like someone who can at least hold his own on the on the defensive end.
01:25:29
He's an athletic player.
01:25:31
He's very athletic.
01:25:33
You know that kind of athleticism.
01:25:35
As long as you you know what you're doing, right? And you got to give, you know, I mean, defense is mostly effort in fundamentals.
01:25:45
So So what does he give it? Well, yeah.
01:25:50
So you need.
01:25:51
Yeah, He's got, like, dunk contest champion kind of athleticism.
01:25:58
Come on, guys. Don't let it. Let it.
01:26:00
Let it get to this point already.
01:26:03
So, uh, some some good defense by Romeo again.
01:26:06
So he's look great on that end of the court, but he's out.
01:26:12
It's still not really involved in the offense.
01:26:15
Despite getting big minutes, I really would.
01:26:19
Would hope to see him get a few touches down the stretch a rope, You know, they're up 30.
01:26:23
So let's just try some things.
01:26:26
Yeah.
01:26:27
See what? Huang, I think I think always going again.
01:26:33
He's up five g has wanna make the G's down 25.
01:26:39
So Wanamaker's in the game.
01:26:41
He's in the game, but he needs What does he have now? He has nine points and two assists, so you just need a triple double.
01:26:51
So you're saying it's a chance is there's a chance is always a chance.
01:26:55
And all those about the win, its fourth in a row.
01:26:57
That's crazy in a row now that grow up without a like seven 200? Yep, I'm really Oh, we'll get him next time. Maybe sometime.
01:27:14
Maybe one of these days I'll pick someone who doesn't get hurt.
01:27:16
The day eight inflate is out.
01:27:19
Oh, yeah, I got that one time in games.
01:27:21
Start tomorrow for there's a couple of early ones that they're not going.
01:27:25
Okay, is it? Actually, MBA starts at 1 30 tomorrow, but beautiful.
01:27:30
I love the 1 30 starts have been like my best week of vacation ever.
01:27:35
Train.
01:27:36
Well, it's vacation of these.
01:27:37
Yeah, that movie.
01:27:39
Just watching basketball.
01:27:41
Yeah, it's Ah, it's great like I usually have.
01:27:44
Like, when I'm working remote, I'll have something I'll have, like the radio on or something.
01:27:48
But like you, And if I can't watch the game and I mean most of the time, I can't I can't watch the one o'clock am, really, but I'm listening to it in the background and a kiss like it's soothing.
01:27:59
So good right that counts.
01:28:05
It's not.
01:28:06
It's not summer league, right? Real ****.
01:28:09
Yeah, because I we walked summer league because, like, we have to for the party.
01:28:13
Because, like the Celtics players are general this year.
01:28:20
Summer league team would have been interesting because we would have known, like all the guys in there.
01:28:28
Uh, I mean, that's that's not something that you get excited to watch.
01:28:35
It's like watching a preseason game like, yeah, you got to do it like I want to see these couple of things, but it's like it's not must see TV.
01:28:43
Yeah.
01:28:44
What? What do you think about Simmons injury? I actually didn't see what happened.
01:28:50
I didn't either.
01:28:51
But afterwards there was a report that there was no swelling and there was no pain.
01:28:56
I'm like, Well, it's injuries that make nodded injury, So I don't know what they said.
01:29:02
Emery camp memory came back clean.
01:29:05
Um, kinds.
01:29:06
That happened when there is no injuries, no pain.
01:29:11
I woke up.
01:29:12
It's gonna picking was going on.
01:29:16
Maybe you just had to take a **** like Pierce.
01:29:19
Yeah, I mean, publishers.
01:29:20
When did it though? Gradually I am.
01:29:26
You hear urban legends like that and sometimes you just like and I don't know, but it's awesome if it's true.
01:29:33
So I just choose to believe Oh, okay.
01:29:36
Got to is All right, all they cut it out.
01:29:42
I saw him coming down from the rim.
01:29:44
Ah, man.
01:29:46
Oh, you socking recipe n? It was a one handed.
01:29:50
It was an alley from Brad Wanamaker from the top of the three point line to Travanti one handed.
01:29:57
Well, I'm sure I'm gonna find that on Twitter, cause, uh, anything that happened Celtics like we're able to find on there pretty quick.
01:30:03
There's a ton of people who just want to cut these feelings.
01:30:07
Probably up there by now.
01:30:08
Are they Saw the replay on local.
01:30:11
Come on, show it.
01:30:16
Uh, that's what I get for picking the national broadcast.
01:30:19
We probably should to sink that up beforehand.
01:30:21
I just I I did this strike for Abby yesterday, and I watched the TNT, but I just always and I love the Celtics here. We don't know.
01:30:34
Oh, there we go.
01:30:35
I saw that one 50 waiting, given that and I'm Yeah, it's, you know, he didn't have much power in a kind of rally around with not.
01:30:48
It's still a 50 though.
01:30:52
Oh, jeez.
01:30:53
Jews 20 points back for 56 to go.
01:30:59
He's, uh He's getting some points out of Wanamaker.
01:31:01
Looking got over me.
01:31:02
**** it, man.
01:31:04
That's like playing on rookie.
01:31:06
I think that was wide open.
01:31:09
Yeah.
01:31:10
Yeah, this is just a demonstration, and we see Grant Williams your game now.
01:31:18
Uh, well, I mean, that was blocked, but yeah, Yeah, you go take a hit.
01:31:25
And that's why I trust a man he's gonna he's gonna who might not execute But he's gonna try to do the right thing.
01:31:31
So who do you think Brooklyn cuts it 20 at the end of the game? No. God, no.
01:31:44
Ice and caisson.
01:31:48
Mr Bucket.
01:31:50
Yeah, that lasted, what a week? Another one.
01:31:56
Who's that? Send me.
01:31:59
Okay.
01:32:00
All right.
01:32:02
Yeah. There's no way they're 20.
01:32:04
The Brooklyn's playing defense now.
01:32:06
Like they're not playing.
01:32:07
Trying not to get hurt.
01:32:10
No, I guide, we're done here.
01:32:12
We want to go back toe.
01:32:14
Whatever we do in the bubble.
01:32:16
If you go back to the mover hood, you know, go to the barbershop.
01:32:18
Whatever I want to make.
01:32:33
No, we need more.
01:32:34
Wanamaker looks for tonight.
01:32:37
We need more Wanamaker, he said.
01:32:39
A little decent game tonight.
01:32:41
Yes, plus 23.
01:32:43
And he's the He's a topic that we talk about all the time in other sports, like he's before a player against Bless your competition like Wanamaker sticks out as one of the best guys on the court against, like, end of the roster N b A guys.
01:33:02
Heaney shines when the competition gets really, really strong.
01:33:09
Hey, it looks like he's in over his head.
01:33:12
Like he, uh, I think one of our friends that you know who absolutely hates point on and make it, um, he made a comment, wants me like if you what's the Julie? He would suck, I'm like and I looked up, want to make his D league stats, and he was like, He put him under.
01:33:28
He put it like triple doubles in the Julie.
01:33:30
Yeah, drawn it.
01:33:32
It was like, All right, he's a for a player.
01:33:35
You said, Yeah, he a little one game.
01:33:38
The Lakers game in L. A.
01:33:40
Like he was brutal and just couldn't keep up, and he seemed really out of his element.
01:33:45
But like every games, like around that, I can't remember which games they were, but they were games where he played really well, like within a couple of days of that game.
01:33:54
It might have even been like the night before two nights before.
01:33:57
But when he plays against the best of the best out there, like he struggles like to see that caution Edward scoring a basket, I I'd love to see that off.
01:34:10
Like that's Ah, that's like in any house.
01:34:13
Yeah, that's what we were expecting from him is to be able to come in and convert plays like that.
01:34:18
And, uh, really, how often have we seen that? Is that the 1st 1 1st 1 I've seen in the something uniforms? Yeah, I've seen plenty of that in Purdue.
01:34:30
Aside from the preseason games and, uh, one game, where you going really? Well, I think we've been preseason game in the Houston scrimmage bubble again.
01:34:43
And that was that.
01:34:44
Like that's it. That's the book on him.
01:34:46
You had a couple of ruling big games in main jail.
01:34:53
Great great job getting into getting open off all you have.
01:34:58
He does, but it's like it's just it's Sometimes they roll out.
01:35:03
They don't know it can all fall like he got a good like it, enrolled in, roll around and came out like That's the consistency, though.
01:35:14
Like like a Lou Williams would hit.
01:35:18
Well, he was better.
01:35:20
He is.
01:35:21
But that's, you know, I'm saying, like, get it semi filed out.
01:35:24
Jesus e.
01:35:26
I want to see that Carson man, That should just gotta be automatic.
01:35:32
Yeah, like I want to see 50 at least the open corner three.
01:35:37
Like it's Yeah, see the easiest, non non my of non dunk shot in the game like it's the most efficient anyway.
01:35:46
And it's Ah, it's always like this.
01:35:50
Heartening when the open corner three doesn't go.
01:35:53
But, like the fact is, nothing always goes like there are no green shots in real basketball, right? That was where Carson, just like you were dribbling like it was 1950.
01:36:07
And then you get blue by a dude and oh, now that is something that I want to see it from her.
01:36:16
It's that you hit not because he hit that in Oklahoma.
01:36:25
He hit Link.
01:36:27
I think it was the Oklahoma City AM.
01:36:28
It was one of the first.
01:36:30
It was one of the scrimmage games and it kind of like it monster around running like a got that wall bounce and oh, come on, Grant the air.
01:36:41
We go party tonight and got it like it bounced around and went.
01:36:49
And I think he had another one that, like, maybe rimmed out.
01:36:52
And it was like, OK, him shooting that like he made one.
01:36:56
But can he make the shot? Or did he gets, like happened to make it cause those are two totally different things that one in there.
01:37:02
If you look he looks like he's comfortable shooting that shot in like he could, he could not, And there's caution hitting its not because of what the hell? It doesn't matter.
01:37:10
So that's where he drives in the MBA, 1 41 to 109 And you know what this game is going to do to is this game is gonna make all of the people who were questioning Brad Stevens just go off the wall because it's like so much more of you.
01:37:29
Look what Look it Edwards. Look at him. Shoot.
01:37:31
Look, it will keep performing, locked people down.
01:37:33
Look, a Robert Williams.
01:37:34
He you know, he's probably he's close to 20.
01:37:36
Now he's probably, like 17 years, 18 and five.
01:37:41
Yeah, and you know, it's like it's extending garbage time solely.
01:37:47
There's a lot of positives we can take out of this for sure.
01:37:50
It's awesome.
01:37:51
Teoh to see everybody.
01:37:53
All of these guys coming in and playing while that, like we got to remember.
01:37:58
Like what? This is to like, they're playing back up there playing a team that, uh oh, it's right now for the guys who weren't really weren't on the team.
01:38:08
We're gonna be on the team.
01:38:09
What did you want? They dio old boy.
01:38:14
Yeah, they're not Did that already? Yeah, they're like they quit.
01:38:18
Like we're gonna try to get their numbers on the offensive end.
01:38:22
They have just laughs out there like, I hope that was a pass.
01:38:28
Yeah, well, that wasn't a shot attempt.
01:38:31
You local.
01:38:34
Just show that.
01:38:36
And I think, you know, never mind the stats.
01:38:42
What's really positive from these young players right now is they all look really hungry and their step playing hard.
01:38:53
Even though they're up by 30 points.
01:38:56
They're playing like they're fighting for minutes and they really are, and they're playing like they know that Brooklyn, on the other hand, is just kind of going through the motions.
01:39:09
They're playing like that a resort, right? Yeah.
01:39:15
I can't wait to go to my room.
01:39:18
Yeah, but I bet the room's really nice.
01:39:21
But like, especially Williams, it was still playing with that energy after getting, you know, a good chunk of minutes tonight.
01:39:27
To where? You know, if he had a couple of lapses in the last minute like nobody would even notice like, but that he's not.
01:39:36
He's playing it until, you know, until the end.
01:39:39
And that's really encouraging, even more so than being able to pull up the stat sheet on these guys.
01:39:47
It is a lot.
01:39:50
Oh, sure, but it's also a lot easier to go like 85% falling here like this, still still getting turnovers.
01:39:58
And there's you wanna make Getting another pocket cause is, why aren't Morgan Because up to 13 now, so on you shot 57%.
01:40:12
So a nice night overall for Brad Wanamaker and this will be the last possession where they do anything, cause if they get the ball back after this, they're just gonna run the clock out there's given with a nice finish.
01:40:36
Still, still playing are down to that last possession.
01:40:39
And then, you know, whatever Brooklyn does here, I'm sure they will try to score.
01:40:43
But oh, through it, do it.
01:40:50
You know, Bob kind of wanted Teoh problem with.
01:40:55
Yeah, it would have been like the end of the rookie game this year when I just wanted to dunk contest mode.
01:41:04
But while the most points in a game for the Celtics since November 25 1992 nice.
01:41:10
So that some that's just a complete performance from them tonight and you said at a time like they've they were playing lesser competition tonight, but you've got to take care of business in those games.
01:41:24
Yes, they have lost those games before.
01:41:28
They've lost some this year like they struggled against the Hawks.
01:41:31
They won those games, but they struggled against the Hawks a couple of times this year.
01:41:34
So I think that's one today.
01:41:37
They would have had the Yeah, so and and those were different Nets teams that were being them, um, you know, the day after Thanksgiving they had they would have carry, but like they were in much better shape than they are now.
01:41:51
But you've got to take care of business against those bad teams.
01:41:55
And and they did.
01:41:56
And, you know, I was starting to get a little worried because I saw an article, and I can't remember who the hell it was.
01:42:04
It was some of them. The globe.
01:42:06
Um, you wrote something today about the Celtics thinking that maybe they could flip the switch.
01:42:11
And when I feel that I get absolutely horrified because enough to be a team that can flip the switch And tonight's effort really showed that, you know that they're not in that mindset, hopefully And that there just working out a few kinks and getting through, You know, these eight games and getting ready.
01:42:33
Teoh, go on around at this thing.
01:42:35
Four games now with two and two in the bubble.
01:42:39
Yes, I will. Happily there.
01:42:42
I think we have a pretty fair, favorable schedule.
01:42:44
Yeah, they got I don't have it in front of me.
01:42:46
But I know the end with Washington.
01:42:48
They have Memphis Underground Landau in Toronto.
01:42:52
So that should be at least three and one.
01:42:55
Yeah, that that Toronto Game Mobile is big compute of playing really well, too.
01:43:00
So, like Giuliano's Gatto playing? Catch him.
01:43:06
I don't want to see a city.
01:43:08
Oh, no, no.
01:43:09
I want them to the body that I get it.
01:43:10
But it might not matter for seeding, because Renato is not doing their part to fall out of a little behind because they're going out there and they're winning games.
01:43:19
So they've been, you know, they've been great since since this restart.
01:43:25
Yeah, but I think my mom Yeah.
01:43:32
Yeah, game over for the seven. That.
01:43:37
Yeah, and I'm going.
01:43:40
And there were a couple of people who, you know, we got noticed, started following us and a couple of people who sent us things.
01:43:50
I gotta look into what that is, but, um Teoh Yeah, baby and textile.
01:43:55
3394 Thank you for sending us the foam finger and the, uh, the cap again.
01:44:04
We knew the platform.
01:44:05
So we're gonna figure out what this stuff means, But we'll be doing this again, and, uh oh, no, I think a good trial run.
01:44:12
But if you're still here and listening to this, you can check out our podcast.
01:44:19
It's called Section five onwards.
01:44:22

01:44:46

01:44:49
I used the same handle for everything.
01:44:50
So if I'm on their type that in and that's thing, you're going to find it, Adams, your toward is a little different.
01:44:56
You want to throw it out there, so it's basically the same thing that's shown, but underscore N B A.
01:45:01
So But sure, if you throw a us go in there, yeah, yeah, I'm sure you're only one.
01:45:08
A lot of the copper.
01:45:09
One will be able to find it from there, but thank you to anyone who stuck it out with us the whole way.
01:45:14
If anyone did, Or um, you know, if you were in and out are again Thank you for listening, because I know this is probably a completely new audience to us because we didn't market this or anything. We just decided.
01:45:26
Let's jump on SportsCastr.
01:45:28
Let's see if the technology works.
01:45:29
Let's see how this works.
01:45:31
And overall, I think it went well.
01:45:33
Way had some fun doing it, and we'll jump back on it at some point and, um, probably get a little bit more of a warning that we're doing it as opposed to saying, Hey, here we are.
01:45:46
And, uh, you know, Listen, listen, I don't I meant e feel it.
