Yo, yo, yo, What's up? What's up? What's up? Y'all wake up call with every sport show.
It's on a rainy Friday morning on a long weekend, which I forgot about.
I forgot about holidays, birthdays and for threes weddings because of what's going on in this time.
But I didnt forget to come on SportsCastr live this morning as so much playoff talked again to and so much news to get into in the sports world.
Hope you have a great morning afternoon, evening, wherever you are and you know what? Let's start things off in the n b A where N b a have provided once again drama, intrigue and all that Jazz As the Toronto Raptors are still alive getting a big Game three win in the bubble against the Boston Celtics, thanks to a massive game winning three pointer from O.
B for the 104103 win and Given which it looked like it was gonna be once again, Boston in the second half puts away Toronto game over the champion down 30 and you saw that with that last second beautiful pass from Kemba Walker to Daniel piece.
We thought that was it.
Practice blew it.
So we thought, I think it's game over.
That's all true for this series, but no, on a great play.
Drop by Nick Nurse to get the amount of bath over top of Taco Fall and all the credit to Carl Larry for em bounding over Taco Fall Taco is remember 7 ft five and Kyle is barely 6 ft tall.
Didn't that ball over talk who was jumping on top of that? They got a guy who, 7 ft five and jumping to add to his height.
So you threw over a guy who's now with links.
Ban Probably offer you 7 10 11 now, adding the reach and jumping over.
Kyle, Get that path over him.
J and no be at an OBE have been hot.
All series long from beyond the arc doesn't miss.
And the composure to make that three would jail in brown.
Bearing down on him showed how much ice water is truly in his veins.
As a young guy in that bubble and the celebration I feed **** for calves here that I'm shot.
Welcome seeing Oh, jeez, Composure and then seeing he makes that three pointer and then just the cold blooded walk off the straight face.
That look you look in the eyes of a marksman right there.
A future gun man for the Raptors, someone who will step up for the team time and time and time again.
That three electronics and fun And now that construct a light because we already know that the narrative already know the story lines.
No team in NBA history has come back from being down.
Three games to none happened.
You've had a team come back from being down.
03 descent to a game.
94 Nuggets against Utah Jazz, but they lost in Game seven.
At least no one has come back to win after being down 03 And this team put that to bed.
They have taken the momentum out of Boston sales with that Game three win to make it a series again.
Would Game four going down on sounding evening? What a game! What a game and is now drama in the bubble bubble ball has t.
I shown so much pressure and drama and intrigue.
I keep seeing it on.
I keep singing Urine SportsCastr Something about animosity off having all these guys together in the same spot for from the rigorous even toe first round, second round and where they're all going to end the year in Orlando.
Something about it has just added to the drama and the fire of playoff basketball more so than other postseasons, and I love it.
And to those who say nbr, anything going down, that's balls that's false.
The strike, in effect readings range on TNT have been going up for the n B A.
So the idea that people are turned off basketball because of the strike or protest ing FBS utter rubbish.
True rial basketball heads have not turned the game off.
The real ones who are here and I've been here for a very long time are still here, and they will continue to be here to watch any A Don't let that hysteria about people thinking turn the leadoff get to you.
That's not gonna happen.
It really isn't and still won't.
Uh huh, Nana, of course, the other big new.
Then be a the Brooklyn Nets coaching search concluded with the hiring off Steve Nash as head coach.
Now that will the name No.
One had for head coaching gig, Not me.
I know you didn't.
I know you didn't.
I know you didn't have a national head coach in the league.
Don't lie to yourself.
Don't lie to your dog or cat or your bird or your chin.
Chila, you didn't and Brooklyn brings him in on a four year deal.
What was the fourth Eric Head coaching gig and the second Canadian train head coach in N B history? Third international coach in the history That is awesome to see and people are singing Old issue National service.
The National in the Villages gigs financial records before.
Well, not entirely true, Steve has done consulting work for Golden State.
He has worked with player before.
He got his two rings as a consultant with the Warriors.
There is an experience so extend we coaching wise, but also his basketball like you mean I would love to have on the sidelines.
He is still one of the smartest coaches or five players Embassador history.
Of course, the question will be can all time great player tribally that too.
Coaching I'm gonna give seem I'm gonna give Steve the better and doubt I'm gonna wait and see.
I want to You can dio in Brooklyn with Kyrie Irving with Kevin Durant and with that core in Brooklyn and I'm rooting for him.
I want him to succeed.
I think all people of basketball not just people in Canada but around the baffle community.
Steve Nash strife.
He is by far one of the more be love faces in MBA history, so I don't see I won't see what he's going to do as a head coach.
It's kind of funny of the Nets had to really recruit him because he didn't really want the job.
But first, if you followed Steve Nash of post playing career, you have watched him be the GM of Team Canada.
You have watched him do ****ysis in soccer for T and T M Bleacher Report.
He is a part owner of the crew whitecaps in MLS.
He has businesses around the world.
He is a very, very busy man.
Steve Nash's someone who I try and track down, but you know, when we will get Steve National on a re sports Where the podcast down the road.
But coaching full time wasn't.
I think he made you know I don't time for that.
But clear that the natural To convince him to take the job, I would imagine that they're gonna I imagine Tron Marks and the front office are really gonna lets you Nash do his thing on my oldest team in his image and also have gills.
Have guidance of Jacque Vaughn will be his assistant.
I know what Jock wanted.
Someone who deserves all the credit.
The world After the nets long ago cognac, Jenson humans interim coach.
And he got the Nets into the ember into number seven seed Brooklyn.
Even without any.
Brooklyn Still a team that will be a contender.
Unease in conference play for playoff spots to come.
And you know Jorvan want to leave.
If you want to go somewhere else, someone's gonna hire Jock, want head coach.
Someone will hire him.
He has proven that he can get the most out of a ball club.
Maybe he's not back next year.
Maybe wants to leave.
I bet you could find job on a job coaching the Bulls or somebody else may be said Santonio.
If Nicky Hammond wants to go somewhere else, even though I think she's the heir apparent when pop retires, maybe she want to go somewhere else and escape the shadow.
Never know what both Hammond and Jack Von will be head coaches in this league and not very un will happen sooner than later.
Their time at full time and coaches in this league is coming.
You can take that to the bank.
I guarantee you that much.
I'm serious, though, that you are definitely going to be a coach's ball.
Clubs very seem like I mentioned Chicago.
I mentioned Santonio be of pop.
There's going to be, you can sense you can kind of send off the end of coming for pop that maybe you'll be in Santonio for I would say, maximum two more years before he starts.
We've got before, he says.
You know what that set done, and b that turn the team over to Hammond or turn the team over to Tim Duncan.
If Papa 60 70 years old, he's 70 and it's gonna be that time where he might see this as a this team becoming a rebuilding project.
I don't see great Popovich being around a rebuild for a very long time.
I mean, it must mean they missed the postseason for the first time in 23 years.
Rebuilding for Santonio is here.
I don't see Pop being around a rebuild for five or six more years.
No, I do not think so.
I think I'll stay for the 20 I think is end his Finally here, I think, will be 21 22 for the NBA's 75th anniversary.
I'm sure legal doing, you know, a grand.
You mean I want it? I'm sure we will do like a grand goodbye tour for And if that is the case, when he does step away from the Spurs.
Or maybe I'm wrong.
I could be so wrong.
And he has your coaching until 80.
For all we know, who knows, You know, we will definitely see you out.
Things shake up for the Phantoms, birth and the MBA as a whole.
But interesting times and NHL Intel playoffs and what's going on? Yeah, we got game set, Remember? We're talking about There's no game sevens that has changed so much in just a few days.
Every game now in the second round off what's left will be determined by a game. Seven.
Colorado Dallas Game seven.
Vegas, Vancouver Going to a Game seven.
Philadelphia, New York Going to a game said, Oh, excuse me.
They get the hiccups on here. On here.
Now what I find interesting and I still don't get is that NHL scheduling would the Game Sevens today in the Western Conference.
You've got Vega's Vancouver and Dallas Colorado book playing today, and you've got Donald in Colorado.
A Game seven playing at two PM Mountain time, four PM Eastern and then vicar in Vegas after that.
Why Why are we rushing? I know, I understand You want to finish this season as fast possible, NHL, but you gotta let game sevens breathe.
You've been in this game long enough to know that game sevens need their own pedestal.
Need their own platform that I'm not a fan of off putting Dolph Colorado in the afternoon on a Friday, if you're gonna have it on a Friday, put that in prime time.
And let's have vision.
Vancouver on tomorrow at prime time.
Why are we rushing game sevens and then push back New York Philadelphia to someday, and then we can set things up for the conference finals in Edmonton.
I don't like this because the whole they haven't started, and it's a late, long weekend.
But people are still in work on the Friday The Friday is not the third hole. They just yet.
People are still going to be at work or at school when Dallas or Colorado are playing on the West Coast.
To me, that is a very strange call for a playoff game.
And that just hurts to me at chilled again.
As to why NHL struggles to retain an audience when you have 12 games like this on a Friday at 4 p.
Eastern, I don't get that.
I mean, maybe some of you on on the chat room on SportsCastr mind, but it's like, really, it is a odd call.
Very strange cola have, and you could have so many more eyeballs with this.
Ah, NHL, any chill and h.
L need shell any chill, and he's a great Siri's, the back and forth that we're getting out of all these Siri's.
It must watch TV.
We thought Colorado was then gone.
Hang Ah! Huh? Little J t for you, But they battled back to force a Game seven on Dallas stars Vancouver in Vegas.
You now have drama of Who is going to start for Vegas Golden Knights? Is it gonna be letter or they're gonna be flurry? And that offense dried up at the worst possible time for the Golden Knights that they dropped Game six for nothing.
There are so many answers for Vegas right now in this series.
And on top of that, this is the second year in a row in which they have blown a 31 series lead and are now going to a Game seven.
Danger, Danger, Danger If you are the Vegas Golden Knights on the flipside cracker again that Vancouver Canucks young core of guys like Elias Pettersson brought besser Quinn use have battled back to get in himself into this Siri's and thats Rudenko on short notice being called upon to get in between the pipes have played phenomenally.
Would Jack of with Jacob Markstrom out and unfit to play? Of course, With what? We don't know, we're not being told everything yet the injury being illnesses unfit to play, so speculation will still continue.
And you need shell.
That's funny of the NHL wanted this unfit to play designation to be used to avoid speculation on if a player has covert or not that only going to increase speculation.
I still don't understand that logic.
Um, why didn't show that route? Because it only amplified the suggestion of player potentially being out due to cove it.
But anyways, I guess it is what it is.
And I see Ah, June 938 to join Shad as well.
Astro man Jordan is in the broadcast.
But no, by Dr Demko comes up big in game game 6.
48 saves for a shutout.
Toe Force Game seven tonight at Rogers Place.
And, well, you know, you've got to be.
It doesn't matter what team you're watching you have.
If you're a neutral party, you are still enjoying this Siri's and see how things are gonna go.
I think Vancouver in Vegas is still back to me personally.
Banker in Vegas have been the most exciting second round series so far.
And then tomorrow you got the Islanders and they filled up your flyers and you've got to give a applause.
Rosalind Bar for returning, fouling back from a rare bone cancer, which she was ruling out of the season from all the way back before the lock before things shut down.
He had missed only won 30 games into the season when you have diagnosed with a rare bone cancer.
He had treatment about back through chemo and made his return to fly lineup for Game six.
I think that a massive OT win to force Game seven in Toronto against calendars the island of Look, you may become relevant to make the conference final for the first time since 93 93.
So as it will be a vigorous Siri's right there with Philadelphia and calendars and the Flyers.
That's a team I have in the Cup final taking on Vegas.
So my whole bracket right now is relying on these two Siri's.
It's relying on the Gold Night to not choke away Game seven, and my bracket is relying on the Flyers, too. Fishy.
Come back and get it done against the Islanders.
So serious drama on my end, relying on who gets the win him pulled of these Siri's right now.
Ah, playoff hockey.
You gotta love it.
You gotta love it.
And I believe I saw once again the bubble and troubles in Edmonton and Toronto produced.
We're testing overall testing.
Zero positive test.
So over the past week, So we've gone.
What now was it? 445 weeks off.
Zero positive tests for cove it inside the bubbles.
Ah, Boat of the end NHL, I believe MBA as well, too.
They're proving that they're working, proving that one of being set up in Toronto here in Edmonton and Orlando have been working.
So I gotta get that major credit to the strictness and the protocols for the players, staff, media, great stuff, great stuff all around that aspect.
And I want to wrap things up in which I got to talk about what, Fingering around on Twitter instagram Facebook.
Madden 21 is broken.
Matt 21 is so broke.
If you're a video gamer, you may have watched Madden, 21 released this week, and it is getting terrible reviews for PlayStation.
For an X box one.
You're seeing stuff like players vanishing the field that run room properly, players coming off from the sidelines and tackling players mid game.
There are Hashtags going around to get your sports to open up its contract and drop me exclusives and drop the exclusivity.
Deal with the A sports.
And I'm looking at this thinking, Wow, what is going wrong with the A? I get that they're the only company allowed to make a scene relation football game.
But this is value.
How old is passing product tests or quality checks? With as many bugs in place? That baffled me, And it's been infinitely for the past three or four years, where there are very egregious errors in the launch releases of Madden.
Since about 2017 ish, I'm not sure what's going on the A that how is this allowed to happen? And obviously the biggest factor that it's still generating money.
So the best way to show their displeasure is to not buy Madden 21.
That's either way to show you that.
It asked me fixed, but you know that, you know, just a production side of things I would know want a game coming out that me picked apart this easily over simple things.
And then, of course, there the fact that there's three modes that are not in man 21 that were in Madden Old four Mad No.
Six Mantle. Seven.
If you have so many consumers that can go on YouTube or go social media and pick and point out over 40 different flaws in my game, I'm gonna sit back and think about other development team and saying, Listen, doesn't mean they were Consumers are going to be fed up with this and there.
Know what we're going to buy our game life in or not being only game in town or not.
And then next year two k is making arcade game.
Remember, if you're if you're my age or a little older, you remember with that, what RK video games in sports sold better then the Maddens sold better than the simulation game, so it's on possible.
Think that a ****ed off families from Madden will jump to two K next year, and that game as an arcade game looks and plays better than Madden 22 E. A.
You might be in some trouble.
You might be so food for thought on that and come into the air of the PS five and the X box series.
22 have to improve with competition again on the horizon.
Yes, it Arcade game from two K in football, but still competition nonetheless.
Anyways, that's it, That's all.
We're out of here.
If we can call it every sport show will talk again on Monday morning.
Enjoy long weekend.
Have fun, they safe peace.
