What is this at this point? Game five.
Yeah. Game five.
Um, Isa Game six.
Um, Game six of Western Conference Western Conference is Yeah, we had a hard time setting up right now, so we're a little a little, uh, finding the audio settings, the proper ones.
Who knew that was only 45 years old and not doing technology? You know, the weird thing is not good.
The score right here is a little behind what is actually reality.
What will score you seeing on our SportsCastr right now on sports custom seen 73? Yeah.
It's showing 73 59 but it's actually 77 74 which is Ah, little troubling.
I mean, that can't be SportsCastrs fault, you know? I mean, that Czar people's, they wouldn't mess up.
It's obviously the NBA's fault.
The game is going to play too fast.
I mean, all right.
My life comes down the game, but yeah, I was just as they heard when they tuned in.
I was comments in Ah, Liu wheels, hairstyle.
It seems that co wise leadership has rubbed off in many ways to get Louisville with the cornrows.
I like a I figured I figured that touch on that.
You know, the hard the hard heading and ****ysis right now.
Mhm the Coe letter impression.
Go strong versus Magic City.
And now it's cornrows.
What do you get? What do you think? The These Clippers jerseys, the they got like the font or whatever.
You look like a little Santos from Geeta.
Is that what you think it was going for? I **** with that. I like.
I think that's what they're.
I think that's what they're going for.
Um, it's it's weird that it's there.
Um, Bumble is the one that sponsoring, which is interesting to me of all places or other companies that could have done is bumble That that does it right now, score is 78 74 with 109 left at their quarters.
What? I'm seeing, um, against the last year.
Why SportsCastr showing 73 59 has been stuck on that for a little bit now, But 73 59 79 74.
Clippers air leading by five points right now.
And, um, who do you got? What you got coming away with this game, Do you think the Nuggets, they're gonna come make up? They came back right now in this game right now, you know? So they have them.
They're riding the momentum right now.
So I got clippers in this.
I see, like, once the fourth quarter comes around, I'm like, they just show choir right now, at least on my my end.
So I'm thinking that, like, just fourth quarter comes, he goes to that cyborg mode and it's a wrap for the Siri's because yeah, surprised it even went six.
You know, credit to Mike Malone and the team they got in Denver, but, um, yeah, I mean, I could probably see.
Then we're just making a quick, like, fake comeback run like they just did to catch up.
You know what I mean? Just because I feel like they'll never out of it offensively when they got Yokich.
You know what I mean? But I think clippers take it will take the Siri's tonight.
What do you like? Yeah, you can You can bet against quiet letter What? It comes down to the fourth quarter.
You know, all eyes are gonna be on him and he's gonna He's gonna do what he does and you know he's gonna be the go to guy.
He's gonna take a step back and quietly is gonna be the guy to really push the Clippers forward and make it to the Western Conference finals.
We'll see right now.
M p J. Shooting free throws.
Um, he was a big part of last game five against Clippers, and you know, M p J.
Being Knicks fans in Nick's show, Mpg is gonna be connected with us for some reason.
Despite what was it like 13 14 other teams passing on him? The next will be connected.
He does well for some reason.
Good player, great player.
And it's not that we did.
It's not that we didn't expect to do.
I mean, I will Great, yeah, NBA standards wise, but I think he's technically a rookie.
So rookie wise Prospect.
Great great prospect.
Rookie wise. He's a great prospect.
Great, you know, from his from his class, he's all right, but he comes with too many health concerns and you gotta You can't knock the Knicks for drafting him.
You know what? They did The logical thing.
And not then the Nuggets did a logical thing by drafting him because he came with a high risk, high reward.
But when it comes to the Nuggets, it's not really a high risk There he had a playoff caliber team with the open street.
A lot of revisionist history. Don't know.
Yeah, there's a lot of revisionist history going on Michael Porter, Jr.
Like at the time it was, we would have been seen as dumb masses for taking a kid with severe back injury.
I think he had dropped foot to Do you know what that is? It's like, apparently like the foot is just basically like dead for a period of time where you got a ****ing live with it like that.
You have to go to rehab for that.
So this is a kid with these injuries? A genetic history of two seconds.
Love being made a paper.
I thought he was gonna make that buzzer beater.
You see these? These jerseys like Mason Plumlee ****s of peace.
Plumlee like I don't know what that makes me laugh.
This is very funny, but yeah e Ironically, ironically, I see all that Ironically, as he talked about his foot.
You see the back of em.
PJ's jersey stand up.
Of course he's mad. Reporter Junior.
That puts a generic ****.
But as I was saying that like it was, just would have been done for us to take him toe response to the point you just raised Um, yeah, there's no ****ing point to it Like the whole narrative about it was just like we had KP on the mend as I'm looking at a Pizza Hut. ****ing commercial.
Very, very hungry enough.
But yeah, we just wouldn't have made any sense.
He's a nice young prospect, but it's also like he's one of the world's defenders in the league.
Writing there did history of injuries and just seems like a bad personality fit like, I just think, personality wise, he's trash.
And like I said on our last podcast, I'd rather take like Knox being a goofy, harmless like sucky player than like M.
P J being a flawed ****head, you know what I mean? Like a flawed but kind of good player, but also a ****head.
Yeah. I mean, like, yeah, that's his preference.
And I also don't think he's gonna be in tow like a star.
Like there was Kevin Durant comparisons about him going back to high school.
Remember that? Mhm.
I mean, if he didn't have these injuries, he probably would have gone as one of the top three picks versus, you know, late lotto pick way he went.
But yeah, we don't even spend too much time talking about my maga poured.
Junior, what about what's going on with, um, the Lakers right now they made to the Western Conference finals as suspect.
As expected, we're probably going to see a West Coast l A show down for the finals, as we pretty much expect.
Obviously, I'm Silver's probably thrilled with that, um, for sure on our podcast, which, if you guys air watching us for the first time, it's called the Nikki's Show. Check us out on Spotify.
ITunes and our Instagram and Twitter account at Nikki's show a lot.
We have a weekly episodic show and we just go over whatever is going on in the MBA, particularly with the Knicks.
But we dive into all things NBS we're doing right now.
Um, on the last podcast you may.
You made an interesting pick for who's gonna win between the Lakers and the Rockets.
How do you i e o take on the last podcast on the latest podcast? No, no, no, no, no. To podcast.
We already addressed us.
We're not gonna cover all the territory like it is what it is.
Let's just do our own low, uh, funeral for the Houston Rockets season because my already talked about how double prediction was bid episode where I made the initial pick.
But I expect Harden and just come out like this completely like just flat man like he's he has the most games of all.
The superstars I think of like a scoring was are shooting 20% from the field.
You mean like, what's named Bob? How z Bob Cousy? Whatever. ****.
You know, I mean, and that's, like probably like segregation.
Hey, just was pretty pretty integration or whatever the **** Bob you put a color tv like, Yeah, I mean, like, back then, they would never mind.
We're on SportsCastr.
Some jokes that better left for the pod, but, um, yeah, I mean, hardened.
I feel like it solidified, you know, like they just come up short.
The Houston Rockets like, funny enough.
Do you see the memes that come up every time they lose? It's like Daryl Morey.
Always, like, congratulate to everyday lost to like somebody.
Yeah, the whole ****ing, like, green shot of, like, the last 67 years.
This is like most of one of the warriors.
Progressive, the Spurs, congressional acres.
Now I think he said thank you to the Lakers.
What's congratulations? I'm just like that speaks volumes, you know, like he's keep coming up short, but they talked the most ****, you know? I mean, like, top to bottom.
They always, like present themselves is like superpowers, But right and right now we're clippers.
The talk right now, Real quick with the Clippers and its its fourth quarter time, 11 11 minutes to go.
The Clippers are up by two points.
The Nuggets capped off a 17 run to catch up.
They were down by as many points as you see on the screen right now, even less and 17 run in the third quarter, the fourth of the the Clippers, I believe, went four for 21 3rd quarter, which was their worst in the season.
So the Nuggets definitely have the momentum right now.
And the game is tied 79 79 Clippers, Nuggets.
It's gonna It's it's gonna get interesting seeing this fourth quarter is gonna end.
What the hell was that? Do you see that shot PG just thrown up like that E file? But it's the playoffs, bro.
You can't be out here just doing like that willingly.
Desperate attempt like shot attempts to draw a foul like I hate that ****, bro.
I hated that **** for years.
And that led ironic that a wider popularized.
Uh, yeah, and they just had to go ahead bucket there. A paid 2 79.
Right now off of bad play by PG, He didn't need to pull up like that.
Uh, rough by, I don't know. There's something like Paul.
George, I think is like we both agree, great player.
But he says he's just another one of those guys that, like they get to the playoffs and it's just like like I saw a clip floating around the other day like related, like Bob Marley talking about how the playoffs is a completely different game, like you would think it would in effect, all started superstars like that, but sometimes just so drastic, you know? I mean, like, playoff piece slump, like in the last round or two rounds ago that she was crazy, like, I don't know, some dudes just ain't built for it, I guess what I mean.
Now, while we're back on a commercial break, let's go back to the Rockets real quick.
And the Rockets are in a very interesting position where they have no draft picks for, like the next decade.
They don't have any money, really, for the next decade, to keep up with the team that they have they locked up with and under an underwhelming James Harden and an owner that's cheap as ****.
And everyone's gonna wonder now what the next direction is.
And Mike D'Antoni? I just saw a report that he's, you know, looking into the 70 sixes of the possibility of being their head coach, which would be interesting.
It Ben Simmons and and beats day on.
But sticking with rockets, they got Russell Westbrook and Harden on monster contracts.
They have no true center.
Much of a young prospect.
Only real prospect was booted out before they even got to play a game six or five.
Sorry, Uh, in house Daniel House.
He was really, like, the only young guy they had.
What direction are they gonna go? Because I from what I saw, Darryl Maurice job is still relatively safe from what I saw, um, you think they're gonna really go all in even more? Because if there's ever a point where team goes all in the rockets literally went all in and they got rid of Clint Capela and they want small.
And they thought that that was the direction to go to really take it in into the West and make it to the finals.
And, you know, obviously they could even make it out of the second round.
What direction should they go? Yeah, I'm thinking, like, as we kind of touched on in the last part, but I'm thinking they're just gonna blow it up.
I don't mean like they're gonna get rid of Harden.
I could see them keeping the hardened but just getting rid of probably everybody like I don't think locker room that's always going to be known as the guy that derailed the whole playoff run your me.
So I think he's out of there, I think low key.
I think Westbrook might be out of there, but this is what the caveat that Daryl Morey stays because he's ah with his record is basically he's wheeling and dealing every pretty much every off season, and we trade deadline mean? But it's it's interesting.
If he's safe, then yeah, I could see Westbrook being flipped, but I could also see just like for Tada Fertitta.
What other **** That dude's name is just like firing Maury.
I don't know if you saw, but, like Came out today, confirmed that, like dance only saying he's gonna be a free agent as a coach.
I mean, to me, that's kind of funny, because we never see that with coaches.
It's always like a player saying like, Oh, my time here is up.
I'm not gonna pick up my option on my contract.
And I was just like D'Antoni saying, and I'm like, Who the **** do you think you are? bro.
But that's just, you know, we're Knicks fans.
I don't really have a good memory of D'Antoni, but yeah, I mean, I could see him reuniting with his old pal Donnie Walsh in Indiana.
I don't see Daryl Morey just like I don't know.
Is there a team out there that needs a GM? Sacramento? Daryl Morey, Sacramento Kings GM.
What do you think? That's not That's not bad at all.
Um, but the Kings did have their open wherever they can because he'd be going from one.
Yeah, how everything You want the job? Because they'd be like going from one bad owner to another one, Merriman.
So just throwing it out there, I think.
What do you What do you think? Uh, yeah, I as the game that we're watching continues, the Nuggets are up by one with 10 so quick if they score and one down 84 81.
Monte Morris is nice.
If he did not want him like, he's a really good, like, just solid point guard breath.
Um, he was a second round pick and then the Frank Craft Did you know that that's crazy? No, that's just good development.
That's just crazy.
Um, yeah, Back to back to the Rockets. I think.
I think, the other teams to watch out for and I think they have.
They're gonna have a connection with Rockets of the Bucks because they're the other team.
That's kind of dealing with a similar situation where the Bucks are missing that one, a player or one B player to go with the honest and e was thinking maybe maybe they'd want to trade for Harden if that's possible, if not possible.
I think Westbrook is definitely a viable option.
They might get rid of Middleton blood so and a couple of those guys and put them together with to leave with Harden.
And that's not That's not a bad option.
Hard in Middleton blood.
So and May brook Lopez.
And, you know, I'm not thinking in terms of like fair trade, but they might try to get Westbrook over toe Milwaukee toe ball with the honest because clearly whatever he has right now is not enough.
And he's really leading the team on his own.
And everyone knows that in a team right in the league right now.
That's what I'm saying, like they would.
I'm sure they'd rather get, uh I'm sure they'd rather get Harden.
But I don't think Harden is gonna be on the table.
But there aren't that many players.
There aren't that many players out there right now that are in a similar boat on a team like the Rockets.
So that's I'm thinking they might split up Westbrook and Harden.
And I think maybe one of those guys could be connected to Milwaukee joint beyond this or yeah, that's that's really because I think they might try to bring some of those bucks guys.
Chris Paul was another name.
That option for the Bucks.
I was going to be That's fine.
But the next thing I was gonna say, cause I think Chris Paul, we saw this season that he has a lot left in the tank, but they might try toe.
I think we have to make consideration of the Supermax.
And when he plans on signing that, if that's gonna happen, if he's gonna be a free agent, um, they might go.
I think he honest.
Yeah, I don't know.
I don't know the full details with Eunice's Supermax contract signed, but I know when he has to sign it by, but they might try to do a much better Chris Paul.
But I think that b'more of, ah, a Band Aid kind of thing because Chris Paul this season had an excellent season, no doubt.
But it's gonna be 37 years old next season, and his style of play is good.
It zits should be long last thing, but do we see him as a one? A kind of player? No, I don't I don't I think he's an upgrade for sure, because Blood.
So he's like a nice little point card.
Saw the point come for the regular season, but he just never shows up the track record.
You mean like even before this season just doesn't show up in the playoffs like Terry Rose here, like made him his ***** was like a year or two ago.
I mean, it was probably just last year, but 2020 was ****ing rollercoaster.
That feels like decades.
But I think Chris Paul, just like first of all, interesting enough.
Did you see the headlines yesterday like Yannis met with the Milwaukee grass ownership And then that came out that the report of that media came interestingly interesting enough after it got reported that he unfollowed all his teammates on social media, and it's such a wild sense to me still.
But like I said, society and the climate we're in now where that **** like that needs to be ****yzed.
A lot of people were like talking about it, and they're just like people pushing back, like, you know, it doesn't mean anything.
And then boom, the news of the meeting drops and I was like, Oh, ****, what? I mean, so to me, going off on his own words where he was just like, I don't plan toe demand the trade, I think he's going in as in like like the LeBron strategy of, like, I'm just gonna play out the season and then I'm a dip.
I'm not gonna pull the A d.
I'm just play out the season and dip, you know? I mean, eh, So I think this season is gonna be like, you know, put up or shut up.
Like all these mother****ers aside from myself, I'm speaking from you.
Honest point of view is disposable.
What I mean, So that's like I'm following all of them because it's like it za business now, like I'm gonna try in this one last season Thio win the title.
So I think that's what's gonna lead me to believe that they're gonna try to go after Chris Paul's point.
You know, maybe like some assets.
Just the one season like, yo, you showed you still got it in this season.
Maybe you have one more left and this and we're gonna need that one more good season during Yannis is probably last season.
So I don't I don't even think like Christmas is gonna be will be the end of it.
We saw them get connected, but I could see them going after mawr just like it's so obvious just watching the Milwaukee If.
But it's not gonna just you need as many playmakers on the floor is possible.
And aside from Yannis, who was that on Milwaukee? Middleton, You know, I mean, you expect blood, so to step up.
But he didn't, you know.
I mean, it's 100% of my little rent, you know? I mean, yeah, I think those I think those are all excellent points.
I think that was something I was also considering.
And, uh, I think you are 100% agreement right now.
I still think somehow, some way the Rockets and books are gonna be connected.
They're gonna try to connect at least some of those players together and make it to make one superstar happy.
But Chris Paul signing definitely makes sense.
Um, my whole thing about party even even being a possibility, going to Milwaukee is just like it just seems like he ate.
Yeah, this is guts.
I mean that he's the one that initiated the whole beef.
I didn't get that, you know? I mean, like, remember, people made a big deal about Yanis going after hardens defense in that press conference.
And they were like, Why is he picking on heart? And you're all last summer hardens taking petty shot, To be honest, for one m v p.
You know what I mean? So, like, of course, the honest is gonna **** on him in a press conference, and then after that, it's just like it became, like, a whole thing or storing on it.
So I'm like, I doubt Johannes is gonna be like, give me that guy.
Or like harness.
It would get me over there.
First of all, how hard is I live in Houston.
That man is in love with strip clubs like man, He'd been a Houston for eight years, you know.
I mean, the strip club capital of the world are arguably Atlanta got it out.
So I don't think he's gonna try to go to Milwaukee, especially how they do black folk out there, you know? Keep it real.
Apparently there were reports shouting there was, like, a report shouting match in the locker room after Game five and before Rocket for the Rockets.
So I know the chemistry is definitely all ****ed up in all all over the place.
We're not going to see the same team as you saw all this past season.
That Clint Capela tree was not smart.
And I think that was a smart move.
The dumb move is trading Chris Paul for Westberg.
So it was just such a bad fit.
I mean, like, if they had kept Chris Paul and then made the Covington trade, that's like a beautiful fit.
It just turned out that, like so your point that I was just gonna build off about the chemistry.
At some point, we gotta act like we got to realize that, like, these kind of mystery problems that repeatedly keep happy with Houston.
You know, it was with Dwight Howard.
It was a Chris Paul.
Now that was shouting in this last, this last Siri's Who's the one that has been there since 2012? Like Harden, You know what I mean? Like, he didn't **** with y got him the **** out of there.
He got fed up with Chris Parker two years, got him the **** out of there for his, like his homie, his best friend.
Ride or die. Westbrook.
I don't think he's gonna do Westbrook that dirty.
But I don't think is going to stop Westbrook or being traded, you know, Eh? So I think it all just comes who's hard in a good fit with ego wise.
You know, it doesn't seem like anybody Honestly, just like Chris Paul is the point.
God Hall of fame, You know? I mean, like, if he's on the court giving you orders and directions, you would think you put stock into it.
But the Harden is just like, Nah, I could choke in the playoffs all by myself.
I mean, I don't need your tips as the Nuggets are again up four points with 7.
21 left to go in the game.
Uh, yeah, Yokich has, I think, 26 12 right now.
I'm watching a replay right now.
Got you. Got you.
I really wish that I really wish the SportsCastr number would update, but, I mean, that's That's where we're storytellers right now. It's all good.
21 left in the game.
Uh, Denver's up 91 88 as squads taking a second free throw.
Is that where you're at right now? Uh, non past that.
Marie is attacking.
Yeah, he's got a mismatch on Paul.
George, You have less than seven left.
I don't know. I'm seeing a replay of Michael Porter Jr.
Somehow you made it three.
****, You got, like, 40 seconds ahead.
Fun? My fault, bro.
We work with what we got Kwai doing.
Pick and roll with Jubak.
Got Reggie Jackson on the wing.
Marcus Morris in the corner qua going into the paint.
Why? Just off the front.
Just off the back room.
Back of rearmament.
Yokich, bring the ball up after rebound.
What happened? I'm getting my boss on, bro.
This **** a barnburner, Isa Slobber Knocking a quiet letter.
Uh, quite the claw You got through a bang once once in a while there I I reloaded.
I got 6 39 left quietly and struggling at the ball, dribbling, dribbling, throws up the hook, shot Mrs Yokich with the rebound.
Yoga is bringing up the ball.
And if you have 25 you're way behind me.
I'm living apologizes back now.
Yeah, Nuggets up 94 89 side.
We might get that enough.
Not good. Good, good. You're on.
I was gonna say I was in This game is interesting.
It z it might go the other way and then I'll get to my come away with it.
But what we're gonna say doesn't get said enough.
I was just gonna say side note it doesn't not enough attention is paid to the fact that the city of Paul George change.
His name is Jersey number 13 for the PG 13 nickname.
Oh, you don't think e That's, um pedal ****.
Like like just PG 13.
That's my rating.
That's weird to me.
Then again, he's the one that, like e don't saying I'm not doing it.
But, um, if you if you guys want to hear the unfiltered version of what we're talking about, just listen to Arpad.
How about that? That's that's a sell job right there.
Yeah, we send Spotify SportsCastr Spotify soundcloud iTunes at Nikki's show again.
Um, yeah. With 6.
17 left to go in the game, Nuggets are up five points against the Clippers.
Is that Gary Harris at the whole? He broke the hell out of that free throw. God****.
Get the leg is, um, bearable.
Now, have a guess.
I got 6 12 of yoga at the top of the key chain.
Walmart with the ball passes to Yokich Yokich against Quiet.
Leonard puts up the one leg get jumper and miss, You know Yokich is that guy who will always put up the ugliest shots and it'll go in with as little efforts possible life.
It's so frustrating.
We actually play with guys like that in real life.
I played with guys like that all the time.
It's so frustrating, The ugliest shots, the worst shape guys, and they always go in.
Yokich is like I they ball the **** out to they'd be out of shape of **** and then they just bust your ass on the core.
And then afterwards they go have a subway sandwich.
After the park, they go, they go to subway, get a foot long, E.
I mean, it is the time to do is that we grew up in the neighborhood.
They will be in the park for ****ing hours all day.
I mean, that's who your kids remind you up.
He got that same swag to when he's pacing up and it's just like that, like it's fluid.
But it looked awkward and you, like you're not used to it when you defending it on the court so they always ****ing bust your ass in the court.
That's what your case reminds you.
If he's like the wreck, like the wreck or the ****ing park version of like a Hooper, which is fire to me. I mean, I like Okay.
Kind of out of a fan of his weight loss stuff.
Takes away the authenticity brush.
Yeah, when I find the whole year old.
No, **** that, bro.
We love handles.
I'm trying to relate.
Nuggets up 96 89.
Corn three by Gary Harris.
And it goes bang, but pretty sure might bring out the trademarked.
Yeah, all right.
That raptors and Celtics can that want to double with t? I have never heard Mike Breen say Bang that many times ever.
Every that was a crazy game.
But your wife for him say bang.
How many times so hey, a my green.
You ever seen him in real life? Like Like met him? No, No.
Like I I saw him.
I saw him one time and he's tall.
I think he might be, like 66 Through is a tall guy.
It might be gassing a little bit, but he's tall.
Your tall guy? Yeah.
I don't think I'm much shorter than him.
But he's a tall fellow.
He's the best thing for the next time.
He's our best asset.
It's about time we throw him into the trade proposals.
That money Milwaukee takes him for, For a honest man.
Where were the most losing his franchise? Aside from the King's for the last like decade.
But we have the voice of the N B A as a czar play by play guy locally.
Yeah, you all the French.
I just can't get on our level.
That's all it is.
They got ex players.
We got Mike ****ing Breen and Clyde The Glide.
They're not Clyde The Glide.
That's that's Clyde Drexler way applied while clad. Pleasure.
Top five point guard.
All time? Maybe.
We've got to say that even if we didn't see him alive, it's all five Lee with Magic Johnson, Steph Curry and no order.
Paul, you put Chris Paul in top five. No way.
I put in my top five point guards all time.
There's no Really? Yeah.
God is better than Chris E.
I'm talking all time, but we got it s still Isaiah Thomas.
They want tiles.
John Stockton went to the finals back to back years and he holds records he old? I mean, Stockton holds all time records in a number of the most efficient point.
Have you ever seen the and one of the greatest passengers aside from magic, I mean, he doesn't have the titles.
Zero finals appearances.
Don't have any titles either, though Nobody went to the finals, he went to the finals.
But I'm not about to be one of those casual folks that hold crisp audio Well, in real time.
What I'm saying is, like my Chris, Paul Rand is all those clippers here is literally I remember our people have, like, selective memory.
But I remember literally Blake Griffin every every year would happen injury that would knock him out or like, like cripple him and leaving Chris Paul to ****ing play without his one A or one b.
You know, I mean, or like, a downgrade version of them, so it's not like in the West to know what I mean.
Like, I think Chris Paul is one of the best point guard of all times, like the only point guard I'm putting over him like period like for sure is magic.
And that's just off like respect his esteem.
What? I mean E put stuff.
Top two. They're interchangeable.
I think they're interesting.
Isaiah Thomas might have a claim over that.
Yes, the Nuggets are up 99 91.
****! With about four minutes left to go in the game, Yokich post up one leg jumper and it goes, Oh, my God, that looks nothing like Dirks.
One leg and one this It was ugly, but it went in and it was nice.
Morris, the PG PG top of the key crossover, and it does not go off course.
Lennar puts it up and it goes.
Of course, this virtual fan thing is pretty cool.
I think that's a good idea.
With all things considered.
Yeah, go all the way off. I don't know.
I think it made like I haven't really been following wrestling, but I think that maybe they totally better.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
And I think baseball tried it or they just have fake faces or some ****.
Look weird on football, actually has people there.
So yo, did you see that look like time out.
We need to talk about just like the state of our country when, like, they do a whole unity, like ****ing display before the game and 16,000 fans just boo like that tells you exactly.
It's not the flags.
Yeah, it ain't the flag, Yo.
They don't They don't wanna be reminded of their own racism.
So they're like, no ****ing unity.
I mean, like, what the **** is like uppity Negroes talking about, like, you know, I mean, like, that's their mentality.
So ****ing like, That's what we're dealing with, bro.
Not to get to really **** on.
But yeah, it's what I'm at 103 93.
Denver's up to 40 left.
I'm on commercial break right now.
Uh, KFC commercial.
I just saw that.
No, it's ah was a mobile mobile commercial.
Let me know when you get to the KFC commercial.
I wanna get you. I'm on the K. I'm on the case of commercial.
Give us some thoughts.
What do you think I'm playing? Don't give me some thoughts.
They got okay. It's commercial for fries.
Yeah, go for some fries.
This is a straightforward US commercial.
Don't actually break down the commercial.
I was playing around.
I'm just saying I'm hungry.
Somebody started following us.
You're following me.
I think e think I knew.
Follower Murray Murray with the ball top of the key 101 93 3 33 Left to go in the game.
Can I give you spoiler alert? No.
Yokich backing up Leonard with the fadeaway.
Oh, Air ball Leonard too.
Back to PG at the corner with a three and it froze.
**** my stream flows did that. There you go.
I don't know where you up to, but I'm at They're about to go to a time out.
It's 106 93 Denver up two minutes 26 seconds left.
****! Yeah, Europe by like, 30 seconds.
Let me reload This **** on the bright side were both ahead of sports Caster.
I'm just saying, you know, like we're all part of the SportsCastr family, but hey, man, like it's just up our up our game technicality waas technical waas, you know? Yeah, we're about to get banned off of sports car, right? I'm just saying you guys are just you know, when your family members give you critique, you got to take into consideration.
You know what I mean? Like, we're not strangers.
We all in the same household here.
It's a big household.
Those of you guys watching if you want to comment, who you think's gonna win this game between the Nuggets and the Clippers comment away.
Who got it? The Clippers air.
Oh, in six with the chance, Thio, something ****ing cool is bringing up the ball right now.
My **** is slagging No deeds.
Yeah, they're down 13 points with 2.
If they don't put it together now it's over.
E got quiet, Leonard dribbling up to past half court.
Top of the key passes to PG Passage, Zuba! And turn the ball over Nuggets up one of 6 93.
Murray with the ball This game This game is about to be a rap ****.
We about to see a game seven.
It's that bubble, bro.
I mean, like, it plays a factor.
You know Gary Harris with a dagger? Three.
They're up by 16.
What a what? A what a fallout is that Pull up mid mid range.
That was also pull up mid right.
It's about yeah, I'm looking at Gary Areas.
That was one time at 1 11. 95.
Now, do you have your your Ah, a little ahead of me.
Got you got You are what? A fall out.
They were up by spending 17 points.
They dropped, and now they're down 16 points.
Yeah, I'll get this offense that would pull up, pull up mid Ranger Clippers.
You know, they're playing with food right now, bro.
Like you got LeBron that closed out the series last night.
He's enjoying all this.
Rest his old s You know what I mean? Like you probably fresh dyeing his beard.
I mean, make it all the way.
I mean, he's taking his time getting ready.
Well, the clippers over here just ****ing around.
Kicking around PG.
And that's a three. Yeah. This this game's a rap.
Yeah, I I mean, we're wrong.
Credit to the nuggets, dude.
55% field goal percentage.
This game, uh, killing the rockets.
What matters most? Yeah.
My stream was so ****ty.
Would probably able to give some concise, um, commentary on Hawaii's lead just evaporated.
But I think best best summary is probably just No, it's offense with Yokich Jamal overwhelming Michael Porter Jr.
Gary Harris even chipped in.
Finally, who side note season where he just turned trash.
Don't know what the **** happened.
So if he gets back to even what he waas like Denver is looking looking nice, bro.
You know, what do you think about a possible Denver Lakers conference finals? So now we've got to kind of entertain that possibility.
You know, the matchups will be really, really interesting.
Um, what a D have to guard Yokich.
Can you keep up with Yokich, especially with the way he plays his game, especially from the top of the key? We know 80 doesn't feel that comfortable past the past.
Yeah, in Terry's, he's excellent, is awesome.
But when it comes to the backcourt and but he be able to keep up with Yokich, we don't know Jamal Murray is killing it as a guard, and he, you know, from the from the from these from the bubble games.
He's definitely m I p.
At this point, he was really good prior to it, but you know, when it comes to the actual playoffs he's playing, he's balling when it counts.
The most so much better.
I don't I don't know if the Lakers would be able to keep up with with Murray as well, you know.
So offensively, I think the Nuggets are really scary to the Lakers.
Um and they've got big guys who can try toe, keep up with LeBron and guard him.
You know, they got more.
I think it's just gonna be a good like It's not gonna be like How? Houston It was kind of a clash of style.
Small versus Big and the Lakers, even when they down ridden, one could argue, wasn't even going small like Anthony Davis should be a full time five.
He's like 6 10 to put the five, you know, in the current N b A.
That's a five to me, you know? I mean, he just because he doesn't like playing the icky center position because it's too rough on him, you know? I mean, you don't drink enough milk, so it's hard on his bones.
You know, enough calcium in that **** so he doesn't like playing five full time, but he is a five.
So that's why I'm thinking, like with this, it's circling back to the Denver possibility are thinking I'm thinking this is gonna be more interesting just because it allows l A to kind of go back to what they were comfortable with and comfortable for ideas.
Well, he could probably slide back to the floor, you know? I mean, because, like, Denver runs out Millsap at the floor.
Your check The five and l A.
They got traveled White two.
Didn't get much playing time at all. The syriza.
I think they're gonna have a bigger role.
You know, uh, depends on they do it because it seemed like yeah, yeah, I was just gonna say game end of final score is 1 11 98 nuggets.
They beat them by 13 points.
Users looking. Come on, Maria.
Well, how far he's come.
Remember last summer, there was a video of him getting a blowjob from his girlfriend on the internet.
Now he's just whooping ass in the bubble.
I mean, like, it's just it's a beautiful come up.
I mean, you love the progression.
You love to see it.
Glad you came back from that.
Great. Double double n Condra.
Oh, I see what you did there he came and then he just came back to just Yeah, yeah, Thanks for the I'm stoning out.
I'm like, I'm like the website rap genius, but I'm explaining your lines, your heart bars.
I mean, I'm looking at the record from from this past 2019 2020 season, the 1st 1st matchup, the Lakers won 91 of 5 96.
The second game, the Nuggets, 11 28 104 3rd game later won in OT, 1 21 16.
And then, ah, the Lakers won a swell.
So the Lakers definitely have the upper hand when it comes to that.
But most of these games have been closed.
If it if it were a Nuggets and Lakers matchup for the Western Conference finals, it could.
It could go either way.
At this point, it definitely be excited to see I think a lot of people are still rooting for The Clippers and Lakers have their showdown, but, um, the Nuggets and Lakers would definitely be dope.
And the last time that the Nuggets and Lakers bashed up in the Western Conference finals, it's not mellow versus coach.
A little bit of reminder of great tons.
Yeah, I kind of want to stay on them after a little bit, just cause, like, what's gonna I think going to give L A some trouble is just that Houston, by all indications, so just watching play, they're much more stationary offense than what Denver is.
You know what I mean? Like Denver, they run a lot of cuts in motion and just let Yokich reading the floor.
You know, I mean, a lot of guys moving, uh, running off ball, cutting off ball with Houston, though I think that's an underrated factor. That idea.
Consider, I don't either, was considered just going into that Siri's.
It kind of worked out best for the L. A.
In terms of matchup for their defense because there wasn't a lot off ball movement in the Houston offense.
It's really just about James or Westbrook this season.
Or Chris Paul last season, just fizzling and having four stationary like shooters just on the on the wings or in the corners.
You know, I mean, but with Denver, L.
A is gonna have to kind of, you know, if if Denver moves on l a kind of have to adjust to the fact that nuggets do a lot of off ball stuff similar to how Portland, you know, they would have.
You know, Game obviously is the key catalyst in Portland, but they would run some off ball like handoffs with them.
And C j you know, I mean, um, having their kids kind of, like, you know, read the floor from the from the top of the key at the high wing post up, you know, just post a period.
And we know that that's what yoga this game is all the way about.
So I think it's gonna be interesting to see, because I'm I'm skeptical on like, l a or elite defense.
But I'm skeptical on whether they can handle just like a more diverse kind of offense like Denver.
You know what I mean? We'll see.
I mean, that's just my take away.
Anything that I think I think you hit it and hit the nail on the head right there.
Let's let's pivot real quick, Thio the Eastern Conference finals because we know the matchup for that in Boston.
What do you think that matchup is gonna be like between guys like Jimmy Butler.
What's that? This could be a tough, serious bro.
Just like to elite coaches, bro.
I hold exposure especially, but like both him and Brad Stevens in pretty high regard on the Black clinic, you know, and we're going to see a lot of unorthodox **** like I feel like both teams will be out there throwing out five guys that are just like 67268 you know, I mean, that could both shooting like passing ****.
So that's what I think.
I don't know. I'm not.
I'll throw it back to you to make a prediction first, but I just want to get your take on it.
What do you What do you think? I think the advantage would go to Boston because this is their second time in the Eastern Conference finals with with a lot of the same players.
And I think they're gonna remember back to the time when they came so close to making making it to the finals.
And then LeBron went into Thantos mode and ****ing took the whole Cleveland team to the finals, played every minute of that game classic classic game.
Um, I don't think.
I think Miami if they wanna win, they have to come in with the underdog mentality because truly no one really expected them toe make it to the Eastern Conference finals.
Um, but Boston has hard nosed defense, and I think they they're gonna be they're gonna play a lot better than, um, Milwaukee, Milwaukee when it comes to guarding the three.
Uh, a lot of a lot of players on the Bucks played lackadaisically, but Boston, we know with Marcus Smart leading the way defensively, they're gonna They're gonna guard the three as well as they can.
Um, I think Boston is gonna take it.
Yeah, I agree with you.
And I think coaching needs to come into play as well.
Like like to go back to my point about Stephen's like, like, similar to how like but but is known for not adjusting.
I think Stevens is that kind of evolved himself into a nice kind of postseason tactician to make the adjustments necessary.
I think they have a more versatile roster than Milwaukee as well.
I think there's more guys on Boston top to bottom that could create shots in Milwaukee.
It was like once Miami sold out to, like, stop you honest.
I'm doing what he could do best.
It was easy for them to hone in on the secondary guys here because, like, who's gonna be the playmaker to step up there? It had to be Middleton and he didn't come through consistently enough.
Bledsoe never comes through in the playoffs.
Brook Lopez Just a big ass spot up shooter.
Now, you know, I mean, that could block shots, so that's nice.
But Boston, you know, they got Kemba.
Jalen could just ball out.
Marcus Smart is just like he's.
He's evolving into a really nice player, bro.
Like if the Knicks can ever get a chance to, like, pursue him, I would love him on the Knicks.
I just love watching him play Jayson Tatum.
Nothing more need to be said.
He's one of the best young players, period.
Right now, best young players here.
I mean, like, I was gonna say, best young prospect, But he's past that, you know, and yeah, I mean, I just think it's gonna be interesting.
Um, but I also don't want to downplay with Jimmy in the Miami that they've been a machine.
You know, I mean, Um, And as we've seen from their history, anytime they get on a roll, you know, I'm going back all the way to the Miami Heat.
The heat those days where they want 27 in a row and they'll have lost or even more recently.
Remember when, um when it was Dion, waiters was there.
They went on a run toe, almost make the playoffs.
After having like a top or like a bottom five record or some **** like that.
It was like to remember what I'm talking about, right? Yeah. Yeah.
And it was like So I feel like Miami's and one of those runs again right now.
What? I mean, so I think they just might be a buzz saw that Boston can't overcome.
But I'm a comfortably say it's gonna be a tough 6 to 7 games.
Siri's and I think Boston comes out.
I mean, I think at the end of the day they got more talent overall and they got the whole top match.
One could say Milwaukee have more talent, but I don't think they have the coaching.
But I mean, like, supposed to adjust just pants Budenholzer, bro.
Just give him a wedgie.
And in Boston, they know their roles a lot better than Miami might know.
I think Miami knows.
Give it a Jimmy and get the **** out of the way and run around.
Maybe he'll get you on spot up.
But Boston Scene Boston is at this point a well oiled machine and with no distraction from Kyrie, Irving or anything like that, Gordon Hayward might come back.
You know, um, in the Siri's used down and let's say Miami is up like 21 And then Gordon Hayward comes back that conserve as, ah, momentum builder for for Boston and, you know, story wise, in case they are down to something to look out for.
Yeah, yeah, thing is about Boston or Miami.
Rather, I think we've seen them, though, like certain guys will step up.
Aside from Jimmy, you know Duncan Robinson.
He's made a name for himself this season, and ****.
I mean, I think that's the key difference.
We gotta hone in on Pascal.
He's great player, but bam is just on another stratosphere is a passer and playmaker, so I'll pass cow like Boston kind of made a one dimensional.
He did not have a good Siri's period against Boston.
I think what separates bam and what's gonna be a key factor is just his passing.
And as a playmaker that Pascal couldn't wasn't able to mess.
You know, I think that plays into just kind of, ah, different kind of matchup for Boston for them to consider a game plan around.
So I think, you know, if they're gonna be nice with Jimmy, can't really step up and be just like, what? He has been a cold blooded assassin.
Bam is gonna be there, and I just think who are Boston Biggs? I mean, Daniel Tyce is a nice, like, defensive big.
He's been really good, but he can't play every minute.
You know what I mean? Like, they're gonna put I'm blanking on there.
I'm blanking on their power forward.
Um, don't potato before.
Like they go, they go big now, right? They got Kemba smart.
Uh, Brown and Tatum.
That's a top four.
And, uh, I thought that maybe one time I'm blacking at the moment.
We were hoops. Podcast slash. Oh, come on, now.
Can't be out here pulling the Chris Broussard not playing, You know, if they can make it.
If that I mean, we're following the professionals, right? You know, that's what they just make **** up, and that's what we're doing.
Marcus Smart plays the four guys.
I'm a ****ty can.
Even when you wanna date him not to.
He will feel ****ing do it.
He cigar KP back in the days and that that was he was KPs kryptonite.
You know, it was embarrassing, bro.
We I would watch those games.
We ****ing like this, tearing my hair out of my ****ing scalp.
Like, what are you doing? KP, How you getting hold by Do the foot shorter than you, right? I don't know, but that just goes to like I used to hate Marcus Smart that he was annoyed.
But I just ****ing love the way he plays now.
Like he's involved in such a good player.
Yeah, it's gonna be a fun Siri's.
I think that's probably low key.
Might be a more fun Siri's.
And whatever the Western Conference finals is gonna be, you know, And that's regardless of whether it's clippers or Denver.
But I just think Miami, Boston, it's just gonna be fun.
