I mean, look back.
We're gonna talk about that, because, I mean, RJ was We all know what job? It wasn't the best, but there's still a lot of things he did.
Well, more than a lot of people.
That was on all the key tips.
What's going on? Yo, what's up, man? You can hear me. Yep.
Light clicking, Hear me? Yes, sir.

Um, no, I'm just gonna assume people here you, but yes.
So Guillermo game.
This has been a crazy 48 hours of sports.
I can wholeheartedly admit it's been a crazy 48 hours of sports, you know, between football and yea.
And you know everybody in the every media.
Sports writers ****ed off that the Clippers laws.
It's been crazy, man.
It's been a crazy 48 hours of sports.
Yeah, um uh, just the plug.
You if anybody wants to, you know, have a recap of the game here.
You know, sports go, Please subscribe to leisure. The next podcast.
Lisa. Next podcast.
There's all the games and hey, did a great one last night. So please subscribe.
Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you, guys.
Yeah, so Yeah, man.
Um well, let's get to the needy.
Greedy of the video that we can, you know, venture off the other things later on.
A little clippers took a little next training camp, but yo, man R J.
Barrett getting snowed for Ruby Hatcher, Marcia and then Kobe White And those guys.
I mean, when I when I see that I'm just like, wow, that the media man it is.
It's to me unfree king believable that these media people get the pick on whose I'm just more mad at the media who clean? I don't I doubt they even studied sports college like sports, you know, sports science for their majors.
You know, most of them are probably English majors.
You know, most of these dudes didn't even do the one college.
I'm gonna talk about that later.
That I think that should be requirement to even get into sports media.
You know, a lot of these woman and men are suckers.
Uh, these were nerves.
I had to do the homework for the athletes, you know? So it's just, like, unbelievable that they really think RJ Barry doesn't deserve to be on at least the second rookie team.
I mean, listen, I would honestly argue that he's a first, but, you know, some people can show some things and show me things that make him not okay, but they're not have him on a second.
And then the people that you have one second are not even close to being the only one that even and I still don't agree.
Yeah, you could have won.
The second is that's better than him is Tyler Herro.
But even I don't believe Tyler.
It was better than R. J. Barrett.
Don't get me wrong.
Tyler Heroes is a very good player, and he's in a really good scheme.
And he's in a really good system where he's the 4th, 5th, he's the 4th and 5th option.
If you wanna be riel, you know.
But again, man, we're gonna get target.
But it's just so unbelievable disrespectful that these media people get to choose and, you know, and clearly there's been an agenda against the Knicks with the media, and they just show it every time.
They just show their true colors, and they show how unprofessional they are to just know Thio Leave them off is just so disrespectful.
Yeah, I mean, I again, um, it's it's a travesty that MBA media writers are are the ones who are allowed to vote.
Um, and a lot of these guys don't know basketball.
Um, you know, we talked about yes.
Am I video clowns like Rachel Nichols, who? When Stephen Jackson was trying to call out media members who voted for Avery Bradley on all the sorry voted for Danny Green over Avery Bradley all defensive team, she kept quiet because she couldn't validate what the hell she was voting on.
But what? She voted for Onda again.
If you go into a situation like if I sit there and I say that some players been another player, I'm gonna give you reasons why, Whether you like him or not, that's up to you on def.
You could point out to me why you know, statistically raw, ****ytically wrong.
That's one thing we get into that type of argument.
But if you if you're making votes on players being voted to a certain team, you know you better **** sure have good reasons as to why.
You know one players in another players and, you know, you watch a guy like R.
Barrett who? Let's be honest, you play on a team that really had nothing.
You know, you had two coaches, one was on both, basically on the hot seat on you're gonna sit here and tell me that R.
Barrett had a worst season then, um, Kobe White Daddy had a worst season then Terrence Davis, who to this day I don't even know who the hell Terrence Davis is.
I just looked at stats now.
Terrence Davis, 7.
2 assists off of 42.
1% shooting from the 33.
Oh, sorry, that was this postseason average. I apologize.
Let me get to his regular season average.
I apologize for that, guys.
So regular season average was 77.
8% Shooting from 3 45% Shooting from the field, UH, in 16.
8 minutes a night R. J. Barrett.
Obviously, already bad players were sufficiently, but hey, played 30.
That goes to show you how much more used up he was or how much more time you have on the floor versus a guy like Terrance Davis.
3 points, uh, 2.
6 assists, five rebounds.
Um, free throw shooting was abysmal at 61.4.
Field goal shooting Waas.
23 point percentage was 32%.
But anybody who's actually watching the games, which you assumed these writers should be doing or that you know that they would be doing would know that R.
Barrett is a, you know, especially executed the basket that you see it.
You see something in him, right? People will call my Portman's Dwyane Wade, you know, said that he probably had one of the in terms of regards.
Cherokees had one of the best touches around the basket.
But you're putting guys like Terrence Davis, Um, Kobe White who played for probably even worse team in the Bulls.
Um, and again, I just don't see where those two guys in Kobe White Great. He's a point guard.
But to me, Kobe White didn't stand out to where you're You're saying that.
Oh my God, she's 10 times better in R.
I mean, it's a travesty, but then again, it's the Knicks, you know? I mean, so it doesn't matter.
There's gonna be a hit on the Knicks because they want James going out and to me, r j bad.
I think it was perfect because he doesn't give a ****, like I doubt RJ bags looking up to see who made the all rookie team.
He's probably the gym working out right now, working on the shot, and I'm happy that we have a play like that versus a guy like Gore Bear hoop.
I would cry over this like you cried.
We need to make the All Star Team E.
I mean, if you if you put RG Bear in front of Rachel Nichols on these clowns who vote, they wouldn't be able to tell you why.
Ah, guy like Terrance Davis is above R. J Barrett.
Barrett, You know, I first almost got mad because then I looked up.
What a die hard Knicks posted.
Um, you know, some die hard knicks he posted like this guy was ranking number three, number four, number five, and points score.
Bah blah amongst rookies.
I mean, he was ranking in the top five, no less than the top five. And in so many categories.
And you're gonna say and tell me that Terrence Davis is better than him? Yeah.
I mean, yeah, I mean, so it's just unbelievable.
I'm like, I'm just, uh all again, the man I'm you know, I don't want salesman.
I'm just, like, just like, if you're gonna be if you're gonna be bias, right? Don't make it obvious bias.
If you're gonna be Obviously try to do a subliminally trying to do it sneaky like sneaky, sneaky put argument in the second team, because then people could debate like, oh, who should have been on the first day? Yeah, RJ, just real quick.
Sorry to cut you off.
Let me just point out the stats real quick.
All the rankings compared to other rookies throughout the regular season.
He was number five and total points scored.
Number three and points per game.
Number five and total total total assist.
Let me just make sure I get this picture right.
Number four in total rebounds.
Number four in total rebounds per game.
Number four in total steals.
Number four in steals per game.
RJ Bad is the only is one of only four rookies in the NBA to average at least 14 points.
Five rebounds, 2.
55 assists, one.
Still the other teenagers teenagers to do it with LeBron and Carmelo and Luca, and all of them made an MBA first team.
But you put Terrence Davis, and the sad thing is that if you go to some of these platforms and I don't want to give him a shout out But you know what platforms I'm talking about? Uh, you know, these platforms and you have the debate, and you pointed out they won't be able to say anything.
They'll say, Well, but they took their points.
The team's success.
They'll never point to the individual success off RJ about over these guys.
I mean, Terrence Mann and Kobe white parents.
Terrence, Dave, Excuse me and Kobe White.
Are you kidding me? E U's? Uh uh, Yeah.
You get in Europe, you gotta You gotta bring it up.
Is it me or Isaiah is kind of breaking up.
Hello? Hello? Hello? Huh? I see you there.
You guys in the stream? Is it me, or is Isaiah's video messed up? Let me know.
There's something seems to have happened.
I think he suppose you know you're getting now.
Give me. Give me.
Yeah, you can tell me.
You know that is my hospital.
Yeah. So yeah, that's the big sleep, man.
Listen, um again, right.
You read all those stats? Let me get Let me Let me think some.
That's even better that someone broke up that you know, this is bias.
You know, they broke up KP stats and Argent Bears Rookie year stats.
You go through literally.
I think the only thing all of that KP had two more rebounds.
73 another dude.
67 eso You know what I'm saying? It's just more disrespect that you have KP in mind.
You Everybody loved KP.
Everybody was sucking KP off.
You know, all that put back dunks.
I remember that everybody was on the bandwagon and for the guy that have literally the same fact except maybe rebound, which was two off.
Um And you're gonna say that this dude wasn't a first team all or second team.
And again you have what? We hardly more Whose horrible Horrible on defense.
Kobe White. Horrible one.
And I'm not mistaken.
Did Kobe I get benched? If I'm not, he probably e I think he did get better.
I'm not I'm not trying to put another like, you know, trying to downplay, But I really believe that he got benched and then, uh, like you said, Terrence Davis.
Dude, um, you know that guy again? Tyler Herro? Yes, kind of.
Yes, I deserve to be on on.
Uh, let's also bring down the context.
He was playing on a relatively stack team compared to the Knicks.
I'm not conditional, Tiger.
I think Tiger is good, but let's be honest.
You know, if Tyler Herro was on the Knicks and r J.
Barrett was on the heat, You think Tiger will look that good on the Knicks? Oh, my God, man.
GMO They would be saying that they would be legit saying that always going on some. Yeah.
Uh, what's going on today? Jamon? Uh oh, my God.
Doggy Bear was on the Knicks.
I mean, on the heat.
Right now, you see the way that they would be saying, Well, this is gonna be Jimmy.
There's gonna B r J Barrett team.
And when Jimmy retires, they were saying stuff like that.
And then again, right, people gonna put it.
People have put in context.
You're talking about R J Bell, right? We have not.
Since high school, he has not had spacing.
He has No, he didn't have space in in Duke.
He did not have space on with the next.
You have Marcus Morris and and Julius Randle purposely not give him the ball when he's constantly open and he's on it and he's in a little group.
They don't give him the ball.
There's no shooting around RJ.
No one could make a shot.
There's no point guard and the point guard that we did have, literally Player was playing on 12 man game with Randall, and he still averaged 14 points.
Still was top five in most categories of rookies and you're not going to give him anything.
You're not going to show him recognition for that.
I mean, it is just unbelievable about again.
You have these media people, like I said that Don't that probably don't even go to school again.
They're probably mostly English majors, English majors, all these dudes and they, you know, they got a gig with ESPN or whatever.
Fox sports whatever.
And, you know, they get thrown into situations where they get their talking sports and like, Oh, crap, I don't know.
Let me go watch the highlights real quick, like you know what I'm saying? It is just so just so disrespectful.
I mean, I think it's I think it's even more in the Paris and that I think it's that you've got clowns who never played basketball, never good at it, never sent the big dogs.
And they take these platforms, they don't they don't They don't properly, uh, ****yze the game because it's you know why.
Why should they when they get ratings and money from just being in black miles and, you know, doing interviews and just being more personalities and actually ****ytical figures? I mean again, My favorite writer is a female writer who I believe were Sports Illustrated now used to write for the Jets, Jenny Renta's and she gets no praise, no love.
And I think I've read probably some of the best Jets articles.
And she was writing for the Giants a little bit, too.
Um, and yet, you know, I gotta listen to people who I think that they're mad, that they could never hang with the big dogs, right? And so when they come in, they put who they come in and say, Well, I have the authority I don't have to ****yze.
I don't have to be fair to the process of numbers and, you know, crunching the numbers are watching the film to make sure.
Hey, Okay, I I say Terrance Davis because he's on the Raptors.
But, hey, this guy on this team, Oh, crap, RJ bad he's doing this is doing that.
He had this game against the Rockets.
While he might be a better player than some of these guys I put on, you know? I mean, so I think it's more than fair said No, I just have a major and I'm just coming in and I'm going to If I know that because they could, they could reject the job.
It pays a lot to be some of these media writers who on ESPN or whatever these networks on, they get paid a lot.
So, you know, I just feel like it's trash.
Um, it's unfortunate former players cannot be the guys voting.
You know, I don't want to hear what Rachel Nichols has to say.
She has nothing to say about sports that that's relevant to me.
I want to hear what Poor Pierce I wanna hear.
What? Chauncey Billups.
I wanna hear what T Mac has to say.
Vince Carter was now transitioning.
I wanna hear what these guys have to say because I wanna hear what Jim Jacks has to say, because I remember Jim Jackson was arguing against, uh, this idiot Nick right? And Jim Jackson was like the toughest guy I had to play.
Something like that was Kobe and hey was trying to say over LeBron and the thing about Nick, right? Because LeBron lover and he's getting paid by LeBron allegedly in my eyes thes guys.
They stick to Bs narratives because they have a network and Jim Jones like, Look, I played against these guys, I'm telling you, Kobe has spots on the floor that are unstoppable to guard.
LeBron James is a dominant figure, but he's a guy who passes the ball.
He's not an Alfa Alfa like that.
He's gonna take the last year.
He doesn't have spots on the floor that he likes to take.
Kobe Bryant has spots where he's gonna.
He's gonna do a fadeaway, pull it, blah, blah.
And he's argued with a guy like Nick, right? Think about this.
If you were a person who fought in World War two and Nick, right, always used to say, he's like, Oh, I I haven't been to World War Two back to write an essay on it.
Well, idiot, I'd rather hear from the guy who actually fought in World War two, then an idiot who's trying to research and write a paper on it.
If you've been in the trenches, why and I'm not saying you can't argue with Jim Jackson will have a debate with him.
But you were just trying to sit there and be the so called story because oh, I know what I'm watching.
Well, actually, you don't because a lot of times when we watch sports, especially from Bird's eye view, we think it's Oh, put this guy should go here.
This guy should go here.
This guys go here.
We don't know how when these guys on the court with their vision.
Maybe it's hard for the guy to come around the wing because this guy's always playing them properly.
Thio the guys left.
He knows how to get around, please, blah, blah.
So it makes no sense for me to come over here and do this, but we don't know so again these guys again, I wanna only hear from former players.
Even if this well starts from place I never wanna hear from Like Ryan, Homs is terrible.
This other players Who? Just god awful but e.
But yeah, this is R. J. Barrett thing, man.
It's time for bed again to me, R.
Ignore the noise. This is useless to you. It zits useless.
It means nothing.
All NBA team, I'm pretty sure Terrence Davis.
I'm not issued on Terence Davies career, but compared to R.
Barrett and forget that I've been given a Knicks fan, You know, I hate the fact I'm a Knicks fan.
I can't Terence Davies Computer R.
Barrett. I would like to hear what the players on the court have to say.
Regards to Terence Davies was R.
Barrett or where R.
Baxter being this list. I know RJ Bad would have made one of these teams.
I'm just saying, You put R.
Barrett versus Tyler hero on the same team, like the same level of talent on each team.
I quite agree with, uh, real quick, you know, shut up to send me a man, Samir said.
They don't want the game.
Just look at the stats and now they're looking at other stats.
Also, he also said R J played good defense to it should be on the team.
Based on that, he played excellent defense as want to come back to Jenna said, uh, for the whistle, blow the whistle. Thank you for that.
Um, just a hard woman.
Look, you I just love because I e I don't know Cuban Miami game It was a camera that was on ESPN.
Who said to Skip Bayless, I'll be pushing averages and high school or something like that.
1 point forces Jalen Rose called mono on.
And then what happens? Stephen A.
Smith had an episode next day say, basically trying to tell Jane Rosa he shouldn't do that.
I might hold on skipped bail, is literally gets on, got on TV and was calling Chris Bosch, Queen Bosch or whatever insulting his manhood.
Mind you skip bells should.
He knows that if he used to do that in the hood, he would've got slapped the F up.
You don't you don't mess with some man.
You don't mess with a man's ***uality.
Ah, black man, let me talk with black.
You don't talk about black men ***uality like that and call me a woman or that stuff you don't do that and skip Bayless across a lot of time and time again.
But with Jalen Rose actually brings real stats.
To say this guy should not be in the realm is one thing you're talking about.
It's like dogs, you know we're from If you ain't putting up numbers, you can't talk against somebody who has put up numbers and generals easily, just like dogs.
Who the hell is this guy? Averaged 1.
4 assists on JV.
His dream like he wasn't even varsity.
These guys are playing varsity freshman year.
Like who the hell is a bad way that we all know.
He he makes for the about himself.
He would get it.
But I mean, you gotta do like generals who has been into the finals, who's been to the NBA Finals was probably one of the greatest college basketball teams of all time.
And you get mad because you called the fact that you average like one point on a junior varsity team in Oklahoma for a white boys.
I mean, listen, man, this is disrespect, and then I say, like I say this right to me, To me, to me, if you're gonna be a medial sports person.
Play D one division.
College sports played at least deep.
You know, I'll be fair.
You know what? I'll be fair.
Play B two play D to at least before Before you know, if you're going to do this and talk about players, play that before you come here and talk about these guys because I just hate I.
Listen, I like Skip Bayless a lot.
I really, really do it.
I'm not gonna make this about skip because all of them do it.
But listen, you say this about LeBron.
You say this about this guy, or you should do this or you should.
Dude, have you played? Have you even got a whiff? Have you even Or you should do it.
Hey, saying somebody should do it and doing it is two different things.
So again, you have these writers and these people that come on and just spit out nonsense and spread out bull crapping.
And like I said before, uh, just go back to R. J.
Oh, What are we talking about? He I'm gonna I will be looking the let me look at the reputation real quick, and I'm gonna tell you where are you should have been.
It is just disrespect.
E wish I wish I had a cool slide thing.
You know somebody having we usually pull it up.
All right, All rookie first team.
Zion Williams! Kendrick Nunn! John! John Moran.
Eric! Oh, my God.
All right. Let me say this right.
And I noticed is about the arm that people have been saying about Snub York Sin.
I mean, uh, Gamble.
Why am I saying people saying winning counts now as a rookie co requirement? Where the hell did this start happening? And I'm looking.
I'm really looking.
People like the Knicks winning first of all, every pay also played for the Golden State who won, who had the worst record in the NBA as a 14.
Are you kidding me? Listen, Azania way all No, that was it.
He didn't have to play.
He would have got on with your first hand genre.
Of course, he deserves a Kendrick Nunn d deserves it.
Um, Brendan, Brendan Clarke.
And I'm not gonna be honest with you.
I would never have Archie bearing the title of hero here.
I'll put that over those two.
And then let's look at the second team.
Look at the second team.
I mean, you have PJ Washington from the freaking new New Orleans Hornets.
Kobe White course.
It was their tennis, Davis.
And what was the last dude? Uh, Tyler Herro e.
I mean, first of all, most of them don't play defense. Tyler.
Kobe White were Ultramar.
I don't know about the other kid.
He probably does play defense something because the Raptors require you to do that.
Those three guys don't like I know Argent Very defense.
Yeah, I e It's all three of those guys Don't play demons.
I know RJ player plays defense.
That's the crazy thing.
I thought about you, but I love that.
I didn't really have to worry about him Defensive.
It's just so it it's just frustrating because thes lurks just they don't know it.
Just when you say stuff like that, like oh, uh, well, uh, there says, saying stuff like that when you press them, it's just so unbelievable, man.
And Andy brings up a good point.
I don't know who voted for this poll.
I just know is 129 or 26 media members who I believe, voted.
I'm trying to see the list, but I know Rachel Nichols was on there because she voted.
I think they all vote for the same award.
So what? Uh, what's that Lazio Chris Broussard.
He's gonna board, too.
The dude who basically lives and makes up stories and steals Twitter rumors to say where, uh, quiet letter was going and he got exposed for it.
This is this'll the integrity of their people. Integrity means alive.
This is integrity of the people who are making these votes.
People don't know basketball people who after 2010 whatever it was, they LeBron James the greatest, because allegedly in my eyes, he got paid people in the media to something other because ST Nick, right, that loves LeBron James.
Back in 2000 and 10 I believe or not, whatever it was, he said that Why is everybody hyped up LeBron James? When Katy Katy's basically 6 10 LeBron James, you could shoot.
Then he changed his own style to be on LeBron James the great all time, blah, blah.
And it's weird how a lot of media members there.
These guys don't have integrity.
There's no integrity to actually want to actually properly assess.
I've seen times when Chris Broussard is like when they talk about who's ago and he said, Well, Jordan, you know LeBron is going, but he knows in his heart LeBron would never reach up there.
They know that when they they know who are the top players and they have other players who could tell me.
Oh, that's why these players don't like talking because, you know, these guys and clowns, they just know that these guys have media time for some weird reason because you could literally have all these shows have.
Former players and former players will have Mawr when they're not being paid off.
They would have mawr integrity like now, you know, look, LeBron James or whatever blah, blah, blah.
So again, these guys little to no integrity there for ratings writing, right paper form of writing is dead.
So now it's the digital and even digital in terms of readership.
That stuff is not so they need and bumptious, bombastic type of garbage.
So brings people in.
So if I say I have a list.
That's why ESPN has list, like all the top 100 players.
And then they'll have this player here when they know that this place should be here.
They like doing that.
So it's to get readings is to get people look at it because they actually they had a legit list.
I think people will so read it.
But people wouldn't be is in upper about it.
Oh, no, this is actually probably right.
Maybe this guy could be here by block, but they'll have this player here Grace of all time.
They'll have LeBron James, number two.
So then you have to be like, hold up, he's better. And Kareem.
And so that's all it is.
These guys were.
And when you actually ask them if you got them in a corner of the bar somebody that actually pressed him and said like you said they would be like, Oh, well, oh, you know, you know, Come on, you saw that.
I saw games Are Jay Baruchel Rockets game that Rockets game, prime time television.
He dominated the Rockets, a team that everybody, everybody, everybody was on the Rockets to be Oh, they're gonna take it hard and look where hardened rockets are now.
You don't wanna give r.
J Barris props like E remember the next game the next day, right? And of course, we all know about Spike Lee wanted.
We all know bus likely.
But I remember J.
Williams bust ass freaking.
They're like, Oh, don't worry, it's just the mix.
But I'm like, you can't.
So, uh, it here's the funny thing about Jay.
You're from Duke.
You went to Duke and R.
J. Bailey. Who? The Brotherhood.
This would be a brotherhood.
That's the thing.
Your collegiate under language had a great game.
You don't talk about that.
You just say it's just the next.
You don't do that.
You don't say, man, This Sergeant Barricade is gonna be special.
He took the last rookie.
A 19 year old rookie took the last shot and made it.
You don't talk about that, but you told Wars just knew all the Rockets will be fine.
But the Rockets are home with the Knicks just again, right? It's just these narrative that they push and that whenever anything goes wrong, you know what the funny thing is? Game.
Oh, I'm gonna be this up that we could talk about, you know, because you know everybody talking about it.
All right, so we're gonna beat a dead horse.
But it's so funny to me, right? Last year, all I kept hearing Waas r J Berry, John Moran.
John Williams was gonna on those.
Well, at one point, we all new Zion was going one.
But then it was like, Who's gonna go to? Is it gonna be job? Is it gonna be RJ? No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
It was It was a three people, three men draft.
Everybody kept saying that three men draft, but it's so funny how the Knicks got the third pick and became a two man.
Drafted, it became Oh, it should be job John R.
I mean, uh, saying RJ means I ain't in the job.
I'm like, Wait, wait, hold up.
Yeah, I just kept saying, like, two weeks two days ago.
That is a 3 million $2 million.
Again, It's just this this this obsession with the Knicks being bad, that media people are so mad because first of all, the Knicks don't need a network.
We don't need a network.
We have our own network, which everybody watching the Knicks games on.
So people are mad about that, that they're not sponsored to ABC or CBS or Fox or whatever.
Um, they're mad about that.
No matter about James, they wanna get James Dolan out.
Because you know what? Funny how they again.
To me, this goes up deeper about, you know, funny how when James Dolan pays his employees during the covert and you've got teams like the Lakers and the teams, like all these other places that are not doing that.
You have Zion Williams, the rookie paying employees to the Pelican.
But nobody talks about that.
But you just want to talk about that one thing, because the again, I don't wanna get too deep.
But you make a whole second man about James Dolan not talking about the black lives matter thing.
But since it's been so convenient for everybody talking about it now, they climb on the Knicks.
But you know, when the black lives matter again, I'm trying to remember Oh, okay.
But we don't talk about what's my man.
You always say his name.
The Muslim brothers the Muslim brother that remember that lead blackboard? Um oh, my God, I do right? Yeah, but they don't think they killed the next one hour segment, but they will never bring up that brother.
You know, it's just it's just it's just a It's just funny money, man.
Funny money, But we all know that. But listen, man.
Barrett has a good year this year, or when RG buried and the Knicks become successful in R.
J, Barrett averages like 24 87 I don't wanna hear nothing.
I don't wanna get nothing from nobody about these joking man.
Well, you know, they're all their groupies, right? So if r J.
Barrett the Knicks start doing well, they'll have one ****yst come on and say, Well, I always been saying this, you know, I put it out there, the Knicks and pump up the block.
You know? I mean, J I honestly, if you send me the stuff, I might see it, or if there's like a bootleg clip on YouTube that comes my way, I might watch it about us.
I don't these networks, I legit stop paying attention to most of them.
Um God, like Jay Williams again.
He's a guy who sits there.
He's played the game, you know? He threw away his career with the stupid motorcycle accident.
Um, but he sits there and he tries to come on as like this contrasting voice.
I forgot who he was talking to.
His like him a Jalen, and he's trying to put LeBron over.
It was like a weird argue with this, and he was trying to say over Ginger, I was like, Huh? And it's like you could just tell he does stuff to be like this.
Yes, I'm coming from this ****ytical because he he talks like that.
So he's trying to be like this like, Yes, I'm a basketball player, but I'm also an ****yst is, well, he's a clown to again.
I don't think that's a lot of these guys.
I mean, it was a certain clip here and there, especially from them.
I just don't care about not saying anybody else can't, but it's like I just when people talk about sports and they're not, they're not using context and they just point out numbers and they get easily disproven again.
I listened to more people on social media.
I listen more people on YouTube than I do on at least these clowns on TV, and they mentioned it and I hear about it and, you know, if you send me something, I might see it.
But listen more people on YouTube because like, I don't wanna When it's all about sports, I respect the players too much to listen to a clown who's never played, who's never been in the game, try to sit there and say why this guy is better than this guy.
But he doesn't use proper context.
Doesn't point out like we talked about talent here, all these guys.
So if that was a case right, why was R.
Barrett still draft number three now? Honestly, teams obviously teams make mistakes.
But if all these players were better than RJ back, why didn't hear about any of these players being drafted over RJ bag? I didn't hear e here.
I didn't hear Kobe White being top three.
I don't hear attempts, Davis being top three.
I don't hear Takahiro being top three, so and it's like, Okay, I know some teams missed, but all these and then these players came in number four either.
I don't remember any space coming to number four.
So you told him about take out drama.
And Zion Wright and designer make one of the teams.
Do you make the first inmate first thing Zion Williamson made the first team playing.
How many games in the season? Uh, 1920.
And how? Maney Mr the average This I'm talking about this I'm talking about.
This is what I'm talking about.
Zion comes in as a few games here and there.
But this guy was complaining like, Hey, I want more minutes.
I was like, Well, you can't play more minutes cause you're not healthy because you tore your meniscus coming in, You know, I mean, yes, you see the flashes you're gonna say and tell me that.
So you got you got fatter coming to lead and you gonna sit here and tell me that and again because he's flashed more.
Right, But let me take.
That was a case.
Okay, then Yao Ming should be better than you could argue that Yao Ming is probably better than, say, Tim Duncan got a shorter career, right? Don't matter.
He flashed more in terms of skill.
You could probably put y'all Ming there in terms of skill and dominance for the little time he played.
Since you want to do that right? Even if I sometimes still $10 for the best power forces Not you're not really comparing apples, apples, but still again, if you're talking about big man in the game, Yeah, I mean, so it's just, you know, they put they and to.
And who said I don't think that despite its not necessarily Look, I don't care what the hell these guys do. God bless.
I don't give a **** how they vote, but if you're gonna argue about the voting and stuff, it is a disrespect because they put no Terrence Davis.
Man, I've never this the first time I heard about 10 days not insulted.
Dude, I'm pretty sure he was a decent played for the for the for the Raptors, shooting around almost 40% from three.
But I didn't ever heard Taryn Davis to this day being that much of a contributor or that much of ah player like that on their team.
I didn't even hear about mental players.
I don't know about Terrence Davis? That's not the same.
Uh, who I'm not getting what? Disrespecting.
But it's like what played for.
And if you don't wanna put him on the first team.
Arjun, Barry, that's fine.
But the second team.
Oh, also, what? Send me also what Simeone said is a good thing to I just wanted to be a neck.
Hey, look at me.
No, I didn't like that, man.
You know what? They probably what they again they want again.
The media wants people always clown.
The Knicks like good, bro.
It just showed me even when this lottery when we got the a thing how much we live in a free in people's heads.
Oh, man, the next day 00 man, That didn't get it.
Uh, you have freaking de Aaron ****ing place with the f ing kinks.
The F ing kings laugh at us.
I'm like, bro, you I'm gonna be in your next head, coach because I wasn't gonna be fired, so you need to stop.
But hey, guys, it's crazy, man.
But also, let me say this about Andy, man, what's going on? Cab.
And he said, Mike Breen, I appreciate Mike, Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, March and March. Yeah.
Uh, Rachel? What keeps it really, Rachel? Uh, well, Reggie's a Pacer.
He's gonna always f on the next, which I totally I respect Richie for that, though he says he's a baby in the painter, so I don't I don't You know, I respect that Rachel.
She's dumb doing e doing love where she's the next fan and she always e don't really kick for any yo yo if it's not Jeff Van Gundy, uh, it's very few because people hype up doors. Berg.
I could turn up, turn off the value when I listen to it like these guys ain't talking about nothing when Jeff Van Gundy talks when Mark Jackson talks, when he's not being so emotional and talking about just random stuff that has nothing to the game, I don't mind them.
A lot of these got Mike Green.
I'm fine with these guys.
Don't know what the hell they're talking about.
How is it that I'm watching these games and I'm watching again? The Lakers? I have yet to hear anybody pointed out that it could be me.
But when I covered the games, I don't hear anybody on the on the tele telecast or whatever.
You wanna call the shows. Whatever.
I don't hear them talking about the zones that the Lakers were playing.
And that's one of the most underrated aspects in regards of how the Lakers air being these teams in the playoffs.
I don't hate them breaking out in the game like that, bro.
So a lot of these guys you could be placed pleasant listen to.
But when I went to a basketball, unless you're breaking a game out of me or you having some type of conversation in regards, okay, this guy, he's not shooting good driven to his left, LeBron James. You know you like to shoot the three.
Driven to his left a little bit, taking a little step to the left.
I don't have these guys bringing.
I don't care about what their kids did.
I don't care about the fans.
That has nothing to do with the game.
Give me what? Gay man? I don't I don't care about all this fluff crap about oh, yesterday, you know, black, black, and I'm not sure I'm black.
I'm just saying I don't care about the social stuff. I'm watching the game.
Let me watch the game where you provide some type of ****ysis or you're just being a color commentary commentator.
I'm tired of this crap, man.
These guys don't know nothing and they're getting paid.
I'm not handing anybody making money.
They're getting paid $100,000 and millions of dollars to talk about nothing.
You got guys on the Internet who will provide a way better come these people, man, and they don't got jobs, man, or they're struggling to make it.
Three. Don't come on, man. I e.
Absolute pounds and they're getting people kicked off the Internet because they are.
They're coming into YouTube because no one's watching that much on cable.
So they're coming to YouTube.
They're shadowing bedding channels.
They're stopping hearing from being hurt everyday person because they're doing it.
We're doing a better job than they're doing, and we reached out to more people, so I'm just like when I hear them.
Jeff Van Gundy breaks it down to because he's a former.
I like former coaches talking.
I like it when they say, you know this guy, he said.
Oh, they send the picture doing Amoeba zone here. Bah, blah.
They're making sure Co Island doesn't get the ball and making sure Yanis doesn't get a full steam ahead step before you get deep into the zone because you know he likes Thio.
I don't have none of this, this stuff going on and the thing about this, you know, basketball's not as deep as it was to me is not as deep as it was in terms of how you could play.
As we say back in the day where you could hand check, you play defense certain ways, but these doing interesting things in the court like the Lakers I guys, I do not like the Lakers, but whoever is coaching them Vogel, kid or whatever.
Go watch how their zones were played against the Blazers versus how they played against the Rockets and they adapted and I have yet to hear anybody point out okay when they play the Blazers, they would have a trap game of McCullum early to stop them able to shoot the three, which opens up their team and stop them from getting a Turkish from driving through the center of the defense versus how they changed it with the rockets, where they allowed James Harden kind of over dribble and western kind of over, dribble up top and then they trap them.
You know, I don't hear any of that stuff.
It's gonna look really interesting.
It's gonna look really interesting to see how that zone that you're talking about, how they apply that to what Denver is gonna be doing it.
But you think you think when you go you turn into one of these networks, right? Ease or the refs? I wanna call because I didn't notice that everything you said.
I honestly didn't didn't notice it, But wouldn't you be as an everyday fan if they mentioned that stuff? Wouldn't you be more interesting about Absolutely, Absolutely.
I didn't see that, so they didn't, so they didn't mention that on the e I get what they're doing.
They're more entertainment versus telling the game, you know, with shocking all them, like sometimes when shacking up, talk about like when they besides, they should go on each other, but they actually talk world basketball.
Actually, I'm actually interested when they talk real basketball, but you know, Of course they're gonna Of course they're gonna clown.
And And that's just what they are there when you have shat.
Barkley, Kenny, you're not gonna really talk basketball ****yst.
Yeah, you gotta be more funny and more entertaining.
But you got a talk a little bit and stuff like that, of course, of course.
And he's always looking Thio to ride us anytime, anytime, Anytime.
You know Reggie Miller is like, Okay, that's that's fair enough.
That's what you do.
But if you have a whole network where the former players are not able to talk, right, I don't need Rachel Nichols.
I don't need Molly carom.
I don't need these so called moderators.
Thio set the table for 60% of conversation, and then I get to hear Chauncey Billups, who's one of the most underrated point guards in the game, talk for 10 seconds.
And then they cut him off to do Ah, ****y uh, chip challenge with these guys in ****es like not a kid.
Most people watching sports honestly, this is why the number has been feeling because they moved away from sports.
A lot of people, when you watch is you want to watch it for sports.
I wanna hear breakdowns of the game.
Yeah, it's a little background.
I don't care about you here eating a hot chili pepper I wanna hear about.
Okay, but look, it's this team that no one thought would reach the Western Conference finals.
You got a guy at M P.
J is only playing so and so minutes, but he's delivering on defense.
You got a guy Jamal Murray, who's won the up and coming guards in the game.
You got a guy in Gary Harris who last year was falling off and they were talking about people were saying he should be traded.
He's coming and looking.
And he had a hip injury.
He's coming and looking like a premier defensive guard who is also contributing offense.
You have your but you might be arguably the best center in the league.
E breaking down like.
Okay, now what do you play in the Lakers? If you try to stop, you get in the front court? You do.
Do you bring in J.
Smith and I'm convinced I'm convinced Yokich is a bad man.
E most You might have one of most unstoppable moves with that little step back.
Fadeaway, looping shot.
I gotta hear about Rachel Nichols and how this is gonna be special for LeBron Kobe Bryant.
You know, the funny thing is that these people know Kobe because Kobe, like Doc Rivers, said.
He said if Kobe were alive, I would be able to talk to people who have said Yo, try to beat the Lakers because Kobe is a warrior. Kobe.
If you gave Kobe the championship, say, Hey, you don't have to play a game this season.
Here's a championship you like.
I don't want this crap crap.
Ugo, hold up, I said, Hold your thought.
Hold you just to put out how crap the media is when they were trying to elevate LeBron James over Kobe, right? And you just I think LeBron James better played in Kobe.
But there's one thing to say.
Alright, players better one than somebody else.
There's only thing to try toe put down Kobe, and they spent months, if not a few years, destroying Kobe's name, to say how much better LeBron is.
I'm not talking about, say alright, discernibly Kobe's hair.
They didn't Bob I.
That's a good argument, and I agree with them.
But when you start to tarnish a person's name and say, Oh, Kobe, it is the same Kobe that everybody was fine.
Oh, he's the greatest player when he died.
Rest in peace, Kobe.
But you are the same people.
Months ago, when he was alive, you were talking, sharing his name to make LeBron James E remember all the conversations before Kobe passed about? Yeah, first of all, there is.
Sometimes they even skip them.
Skip LeBron Kobe. Which listen.
We all know LeBron is an overall better player than Kobe Bryant.
Winning, winning, wise winning wise.
You can debate that you can really debate winning wise, but overall, we all know Kobe.
I mean, we all know about the better player, but the way they used the ish on Kobe, Come on now.
Well, man, there'll be days.
Remember those Kobe games where he, you know, shot you out the game? Man, I'm low volume.
Hold on a my little value dossier e alright, but yeah, I remember alot Those segments with the Kobe was getting ****ed on by the media fished on.
But when he passed man Kobe Bryant man, that dude might have been the greatest second play a long time, and I've heard people saying he's a second.
He's the greatest player of all.
I've heard people who have criticized them and rightfully so.
This is their sensationalist right.
Kobe Bryant passing has nothing to do with how you feel about him, statistically compared to something else.
But they have no integrity.
They have no integrity, bro.
They will, usually to drum up ratings.
That's all it is.
That's all it is, like it's try like they again.
When I watch my sports.
When I watch my sports coverage, I don't need you to show.
I want to know who were the greatest warriors on the court.
I don't need you to come in.
I've seen people, you know, interviewing people and the thing about they interviewed people when some of these players like the interview team and he was not ready to talk about.
And it's like they do this just to get rid. They don't care.
Ah, person dies in the court.
You know how many times I've seen on the court? Somebody dies and they build up.
Oh, Kyra, every when you first came back and It's like to me if someone dies in your life who's supporting to you? I'm not talking to you for a good week and I'm not gonna talk about it all.
I don't care about ratings unless you want to talk about I'm not talking about it because that's something personal.
You had that relationship, that person just to see you, to cry and shed tears like Alright is gonna get you ring.
But don't you have some integrity? Isn't Isn't that any integrity? Be like, hey, let that person more than peace that everything else that doesn't have to be on social media, our lives are not should not be on display 24 7 for people's enjoyment unless they want to show that.
But it's like, Come on, man.
So to me, so you don't have a problem.
You have a problem with people just saying, you know, well, regards in this case regards to Kobe how he was a great great player and probably a you know, a great individuals.
Well, they just leave it at that e if you if you want to say, if you want to get on on any Mote and that stuff that's up to you.
But the trick is that after somebody wins, that's what they're doing.
And many times they play with walk off.
Kind of like they can't hold themselves together, right? Many times.
What they do is that they're saying, Oh, man, you score 46 point.
Wait till the very end of like, yes, we know this really hard time for you.
And, you know, Bob Blonde, they'll try Thio, Nipsey Hustle rust Nipsey Hustle died.
And so you have the 2020 20 game and I'm like dogs.
You guys are so we owe And that same Sims in the building.
Yeah, I'm trying t o.
Yeah, I'm trying to send my stuff off because him and, um And then to keep growing on me and everything E o e.
How do you guys feel about the Clippers and the Nuggets? Which no, again.
Ah, lot of what I've seen today through the sports shows was no one talked about the Nuggets.
Everybody talked about the Clippers, which totally it's understandable, but at the same time put respect on the Nuggets names.
Um, Jamal Murray has showed up.
I got a call it, man.
I think It's superstar now, personally, What I know about that.
Yeah, I want to see.
You know what? You know what will define him.
I think what will really define him is what he does against LeBron.
They go to the championship.
A people were saying that A Okay, he did it against the Utah Jazz.
Let's see him do it against the clipping.
I was one of those people.
I was like, Okay, He faced the Utah Jazz.
I'm like, Let's see if you could do it against those wings.
And, um, I think we'll let me Not e right now.
Listen, Joker, there's no debate.
I hope Mitchell Robinson is inspired by what? You know by looking at him, man, I'm not saying E, but still.
But, man, I love yogurt.
And he was a second round pick.
He was a second round pick.
I forget which number you know, he was I think he was, like, in the forties or something like that.
He was a second round thirties, late thirties, early forties.
But again, this is all about.
But this is all about the situation where you picked, you know, development staff and all that stuff because that you loathe.
Let's have let's hypothetically say the next pick him.
I don't think the Joker will be.
The joke is on the next loathe if he was, You know why? Because of the development that we were talking about.
I don't know what Denver's development is like, but it well, if he would love to be, you know, like that.
So I mean, even if he was on the Lakers, I don't think.
Listen, Joe good was supposed to be on a hey, you're supposed to be on about.
Yeah, he's dominating right now.
We're going to see what's gonna happen.
He's one of those guys.
Him and Murray and the other guy that's on there.
Uh, no, I'm not him, Not him. Yes.
Those are guys that I believe will stay with that organization for a long for a long while.
I don't think Think they'll they'll go anywhere.
You can sign a five year deal.
He signed through.
He signed through 2000 and 23.
Uh, Jamal Murray.
He is signed through.
Hey, signed through.
What the hell is this? Oh, he's a is.
Making a sense is the free agent.
Just hold on, hold up.
He said, Oh, he's on restricted free agent in 2000 and 20.
Yeah, because he signed a five year deal in 2019.
Uh, so 1 to 2024.
2025 Eso Yeah, and then Gary Harris.
I signed a contract to my beauty Gary Harris has signed was signed in 2017 to a four year, $84 million extension.
So they have their core.
I mean, yeah, that those those air Your quote unquote cornerstones, I would say, At least Murray and Yokich, those are your two cornerstones.
This is how I mean they were able to draft luxury, right? They were able to drive luxury Bobo drive luxury and an m p j.
A guy who is supremely talented.
But just, you know, the injuries that back in just terrible, Andi, that's why I mean, it's beautiful what they're going through right now.
They might be that team.
Um, Now I'm gonna put you on the spot in that draft.
Uh, Michael Porter.
If we would have drafted him.
Do you think we would have had? Do you think Kevin Knox if they would have drafted them if they would have had the success that that they're having now? Well, I mean, the success due to Micro June is not e.
I mean, they've had games and like like the past few games against the Clippers, he's played really good defense.
Andi, I think he had, like 16 points.
Nine game seven, game six.
So I don't know, Kevin Knox isn't me.
He's also he's a he's a guy has to me.
Honestly, I think he just has to be coddled a little bit.
Uh, when you're talking about a team like that, I mean, you're not even playing Bobo, who I think has a little bit more gum function and Kevin knocks.
So is it a team where they will baby him and try to ease him into the lineup? I don't know, because that's already made playoff team and we don't They don't probably have time to kind of coddle and hold his hand and make him, you know, I mean, he has to fit in getting way of fixing that m P J.
Has been doing that because I M.
I don't think they had expectations that he will be, you know, producing this much.
That's why he's complaining about only getting 20 minutes a night and only a few touches, because the team always thought, Hey, we put you in for a few minutes here in there in the 1st and 2nd quarter.
You just give us maybe one or two threes.
But this guy's driving to the basket.
He's trying to dunk on people, you know.
He's looking really active.
Kevin Knox just doesn't have that type of game.
Um, he's not a he's not.
Is he in terms of technique when he triple threats? I mean, I don't remember last time, Kevin.
I was really triple threat, but he's very robotic and straightforward.
And some of his moves MP Jacob Capture You could shoot all he could to set shot right in front of face.
You know, you can shoot the three properly.
I've never and his confidence never wavered.
Kevin Oxendine is just Yeah, this is all.
So this is a real quick what a true man.
Hey said I hope Denver wins but the rebels gonna do everything in their power to help the Lakers help the Lakers.
They cannot absolutely Well, let me Let me let me say that if there is one universal truth, there is no way in hell N b A is not gonna let the Lakers go to the finals.
The narratives, the stories that Kobe Bryant's gonna push from Because Kobe wanted the Lakers to win, he wanted them to win.
Listen, there is no way in hell MBA is not gonna.
And I feel bad because there's no way in hell the Lakers are not going to the finals.
There's a happen again.
Eso you as a coach.
So as you as the Denver coach, how would you knowing all this? How would you get your team ready way against the Lakers way? Ain't gonna argue with the refs.
Uh, we're gonna harass you gonna harass 80 in the mid range because once his mid range gets going, it's kind of hard to stop him.
We're gonna force LeBron James, uh, to be a shot maker, especially because he's extremely streaky.
What? I mean, I remember the game.
I think it was against the Houston rockets when it gives us covering a huge shot.
Four for five from the three in the first half.
Second half, he couldn't make it three.
So you gotta play this smart.
You can't sit there and argue with the refs.
You can't say they're trying to force files like the Clippers were trying to do yesterday by just driving to four people.
Ah, LeBron James.
These so called special stars could get and they get that during the playoffs.
That's why the rockets of Terrible, where Harden was getting sauces like we're not gonna call these chief House for because we know that you're a fake superstar.
I mean, so God, playing smart, you got exploit their weakness.
The Lakers cannot deal with pace, and you have a deep bench Lakers a lot of deep bench like that.
I know people talk about J R and D on, but they don't trust those guys like that abuse if their backcourt and on their front court.
Well, make sure that you guys, you see that that e was gonna have to come down to your pitch, but again got you mentally prepared, man, The same way you all hyped up this thing.
I'll tell about the emotionally when you're in the playoffs until you win the championship, your lows and your eyes have to be the same.
That would be even like you can come in there and be like, Yeah, we got because again when we watch a guy like Jamal Murray, I mean, he went off.
He had 25 points in the first half yesterday.
Yes, games was putting.
But their games when Jamal Murray does not look good and you gotta and the thing I like about the Nuggets is that they have different looks on offense they have with Jamal.
Murray could come there.
They said that little pick and roll, like where yoga sets one fit, kind of pick and roll.
He pops up and he sets another one late, and then they start the pick and roll.
They have games where they passed the Yokich Guys double team, and they have somebody cut to the basket.
So stay true to what? Whatever your game plans were in terms of adapting, do not let LeBron do not let the reps do not let any narrative throw you off.
You start getting trouble.
Take the guys out, regroup.
You start not getting You're not getting fouled Coast.
Okay, let's go back to trying to shoot.
Let's try to space out the four guys got Jeremy Grant.
You got Paul Millsap.
They have role players.
So to me, don't let the reps get in your head.
Yeah, well, still, Yeah, I will say this.
When your kicks goes out, it seems like there's a drop because probably I've been just If there's only thing if there's one thing that I've been disappointed, it's been Pum Lee.
When he's, you know, spends, um, Yokich Force for a spell.
I don't like his his activity.
Well, think about I don't mind telling me as a rim protector, but one thing I do, I do like they do try to run, pick and roll in to get him active, to not let it just be, uh, the guy shooting perimeter.
Obviously, Paul Miller said, I think you're, like, 23 Just a general grant.
Same thing when their role players are able to create shots from the perimeter, right? They don't really matter.
Comey's in there or not there just on, right, but, uh, he oh, what I was going to say was, when you have that matchup, um, bench wise, between pummeling and let's say, um Dwight Howard that that I think that's going They might exploit that a little bit.
Yeah, about ***** wise is he's playing right? Dwight Howard? I think so.
The thing about Dwight Howard, though, they don't really go to him like he, they don't go to him to throw him the ball down the post like how it was when he was with the, You know, with the Magic.
He's not that type of play anymore.
He's more of like a rim runner, especially when he's in there with LeBron, a guy who's gonna kinda clamp around the rim and what I've seen.
I mean, you gotta gotta Mason Plumlee, who? He's not the greatest off.
You know, I'm a box trial itself, but, you know, I've seen games where the Lakers played again.
Game one, Lakers Blazers.
You know, uh, Hassan Whiteside played really well, uh, in protecting the boards, getting rebounds against Dwight Howard.
And here's a battle down there.
So you want a guy like Mason Plumlee guy? A Narrow did.
He's not gonna He's not gonna come in terms of those important moments when LeBron James, especially in 80 years out, or when one of those who are especially LeBron James Bron James not a guy who Look, if you streaking to hit a few shots, you might do that.
But one thing he's been doing has been carving up teams with this passion.
Yeah, if you could get it to a guy like Dwight Howard download and you could defend against that or when they have their when their guys like Danny Green and those guys KCP can't hit, you're gonna need somebody Clinic those boards.
And I don't mind Mason Plumlee.
So Okay, I will say this, though, you know, just to wrap it up a little bit because, uh, we're gonna send you to But that's how you guys feel about the next, uh, next camping, all that stuff.
But listen, man playoff P playoff.
Paul, George Paul, that boy is Darby.
Know that boy e.
I just want to put this in the air, and I'm not saying it's gonna be for the next next.
Pay attention to the Y, Leonard about what he wants to do, because next year is a big year for the Clippers.
If they don't win co, I can leave scared.
They they are screwed.
You know, the Rockets and the Clippers are screwed for the future.
They literally gave all the pics, all the people. Yeah.
Yep. All the pics are toe Okay.
Yeah, it's over if they don't win next year.
But I will say this though, co I might go back to the east.
Okay, here's my question.
Here is my question.
He worked all that way to get back home.
Could you see him leaving? Did you really see him leaving? You see a guy? Even if you don't have.
If you keep a guy who I think is over it is a coach.
Doc Rivers there, you know? I mean, you guys just gonna go Izel, Uh, not really developed that.
I mean, Montrose Harold was a good piece.
I don't know why they whenever away from that pick and roll they had because you could defend um and, you know, again, quiet, Leonard, You know, he's at that superstar level where he could just demand certain coaches so easily, come back to us and leave that situation because you gave up way too much for a guy on poor George who he's always the He's always he's always ah, hot friend, the hot chick friend.
Everybody everybody thinks they want, and it's usually getting like, uh okay, Yeah, the thing about it is he was Yeah, he was working.
And why he was working so well with with Toronto, you know well enough for them to win the championship.
It seemed like everything was clicking with that team.
And then we owe yeah, both those guys not wanna play LeBron.
I get it because your legacy would now be LeBron LeBron.
D is literally the better player on that team.
And he gets his second fiddle to LeBron, which is amazing.
I don't know how, um, so they wanted to go back home, and I can't blame them, But you gave up so much for Poor George.
And honestly, this is an issue when you trade for that much and again.
Doc Rivers said I thought doctors did a better job coaching last year.
Uh, he did e made the playoffs after all they traded, you know? I mean, they traded pieces and that team should not have made the playoffs. And they did.
And I felt like, you know, you traded way too much for a guy in Port George who look, he's a good individual, played in the regular season, but he's been He's been delivery injury prone.
He's not clutch People who try to make him seem like he's this great clutch play because he's had a few games in Indiana, that everybody.
Haney was clutched before his injury.
He was clutched before his injury.
That may be a big thing about injuries, though.
This thing about it, right? They're not saying everybody has the same threshold of pain or whatever, right.
But he looks relatively healthy now.
So unless it's a brain injury e.
I've seen I've seen quite Linda last year in the finals, hobbling on one leg, and he was the ultra dominant.
So poor jobs like to call himself Playoff P.
Somebody just put Pandemic P.
That might be better for him because, honestly, he panics.
He 10 points yesterday and your defense is crap.
I mean, how many times you start backdoor cuts from a base line through the middle and then he's got an alert and poor George is there to me.
You you scored 10 points a shot and hit it.
All right, Drop to the basket.
He didn't do that enough.
You know, his defense was You know what? I hate it.
I hate I listened to his post interview.
This dude is not a this dude, not a winner.
This does not Alfa Male, but I'm gonna say what? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
So I mean, yesterday he was like, Oh, this wasn't a boom or bust here.
This wasn't a chippy Contribute, dude, what are you talking about? Shut up, you freakin loser.
That's loser talk.
Thought this wasn't like I know.
Seriously, dude, listen, I'm a competitive person.
And if I'm if I have a team like the Clippers, I would have been like, No, this was a failed season.
Call it what it is, bro.
Calling a failed seasons.
I'm saying, stop making excuses like you did last year with that.
It's a bad shot.
We'll play defense if he could make it is a good shot.
Um, stop all this crap where you know, you just make it like this wasn't this season, wasn't a boomer bus for us.
Yes, it Waas. Yes, yes, Yes, it is.
We're supposed to be, at least at least in the Western Conference finals toe fight for that.
So many people for this team, even with us to get to get Morse.
They gave us a pick, you know? And also, um, I forget the other player that that's with us now.
But they did all that just to go out in the second round just to go out.
That's what I'm saying.
That's what I'm saying.
Thank you for these guys.
These owners, some of the ones that come in.
Look, I like the one who comes in and spends but a guy like Bomber bombers.
Probably putting pressure way.
You know, these guys who don't know basketball, right? We give up all these first round draft picks, a guy quality who is super stop.
It is injury prone.
A guy called George who it is not close like they ain't superstar level like that.
All your eggs in one basket and a guy who has a contract you believe its second year you're stuck your starting weight cloud right all the time for dumb stuff.
But for for the Rockets and the Clippers, who pretty much bank their futures into players that have, If you look over the years are not, they're they're not playoff deep players on you and you and then the Clippers are wondering why they're gonna in a few years be the Clippers of old.
They have no future, first of all for for people don't know, man, One low key thing about championship when teams is that you know what you can go get in the twenties with your first one pick a guy that contribute that can still contribute.
You can keep getting younger when you don't have that and you put veterans, you're gonna look crazy.
And then people gonna wonder why when o k. C.
Is gonna be a top five team in 2027 you know, 2027 2020 Whatever.
Then you're gonna be like, Oh, crap, you're gonna go back to 2020 and in 2027 or 26 or whatever, I don't know.
I'm gonna be like, Why the hell do they have like, what the hell is there freaking the number one pick on the Clippers, and they're and they're like, 51 team on the on, the on the thunder.
I mean, look at us.
We went to the second round against Indiana, lost that.
And then, um, we instead of trying to stay true to what? You know what? We were trying to dio We trade to get biryani, and we gave them the pictures.
Well, and that puts put us back, you know, so it doesn't work when you try to put all your eggs in one basket, it really doesn't.
Yeah, yeah, Just grab this up a little bit.
Guys, we've been on for an hour and 10 minutes.
Shout out to everybody there, Ralphie ds as they look, we've got to make that move from smooth.
Have nice a bad look.
So I let a bad body should consider signing.
Um, Okay, on, I guess. Patrick Beverley e.
Guess Patrick Beverley is bark, but no bite e the owner brings him in and he just goes back to the audio.
Tweet that Damien Willington.
He said I e o e o um, they little twitter you're talking about They need to stop chasing curry.
They're looking toe tries, but he was Jack in threes and look like an idiot.
That's another dude that people got to start looking at, like, Hey, uh, game time, you act like you're a superstar, you chasing the ghost of Curry.
Trying to shoot 50 ft shots and acting like that's a reliable way to win.
So because I like him, I mean, hey, yes, they were expected to go, but Daimler, too.
****, I gotta stop acting bourgeoisie, man, because people start to look up like, Hey, you're in your thirties and you have a finals.
Everybody's saying, Granted, he ain't this team ain't as talented as these other teams, but still **** well it took all that crap.
And when he was out, that one game, I never got to go.
I say, when he was out that one game, they were moving the ball.
They look, I know they lost, but they looked a lot better.
I would like to see if they don't have names again.
David was a beast, not get me wrong, But that last game they had everybody and teams looking good.
What's different between his game? What's difference between his game and Jamal Murray's game.
Well, the more the thing about is that they game plan a little bit better, right? So it's not just pure is a when you watch the more Murray.
Yes, you go is a times and they pick and choose right when he's hot.
He's hot, right, but they play a lot more.
Pick and roll with Yokich.
They have a big man who's there to kind of be the safety net, that if he can't create space or they double team on top after pick and roll jump in the air and passed the Yokich and Yokich passing from that foul line is probably one of them or operating.
Let me say just passing.
He's one of the deadliest players in terms of, you know, five seconds off the clock.
You could pass out to perimeter.
He could take a little shot.
It's perfect from, you know, and they have not used Turkish the same way with Portland.
I wish they would cause Nurkic he's not Yokich, but in terms of being able to do that, he could do a lot of things that yoga just doing maybe the lesser level, But yeah, e just see Sabonis and yo and thes kids don't know about Arvydas Sabonis man thing.
They don't know about the Sabonis, man.
Go back and watch.
E came to America like my mother knew about this.
But you know what? You don't know? Watch International go back and watch some of those games you have with the Blazers.
Like when he went perfect from the field or whatever.
It was something go back and Arvydas Sabonis was yoga before all this stuff is just a game to be that expressive to be where a big name could take up the ball conf ascyltus moving that stuff.
But go on watch Arvydas Sabonis, man.
Oh, yeah, that was my God, man.
Uh, Z a Let's to wrap it up.
How do you guys feel about the next and the How do you feel about next on Monday about the training camp? Oh, I I liked what I saw.
Um, it's great to see and I think from a from a coaching standpoint, they was waiting to get their hands on these guys to see where they were, What they need to work on, what they have and what what the um what what the game plan will be, you know, for, you know, for the weeks to come this week it was all individual.
Um, I didn't see.
I think I have seen everybody.
But now also, they have the Westchester Knicks in their Tua's well, right? Yeah.
I just want to see, um my man, uh, Wooten, I want to see Kenny Wooten, and I want to see, um, the point guard.
I want to see them in there to see because I really think those two guys could be, um, to really contribute to the team and everything, So I wanna e dio ideo I dio I don't know.
Well, who says something about Margaret for who ever said anything about signing mantra as hell? No.
Yo, people, my people don't really people really ****ed off paying, uh, Van Fleet and Mark and Trans all this money, man, they're not gonna be the same people, but I agree they need to stay with her at Yeah, they definitely do.
But it's not gonna happen, and I don't go get go get your money back.

I haven't seen Frank.
Haven't seen Frank E, so I don't really give a ****, man.
We've had cancer is like, Yo, we see e think what's different about this right here is because you have a established coaches.
You know what their predatory is? I don't give a **** e It's tips and Woody, man, it's e don't see discernable changes on the court.
Yeah, no problem.
Dennis Smith, Jr.
Oh, man, U E u off one.
I'm like what, e guys, if some of these players are going to the G lead to redevelop some of their games or something like that, I'm talking about live action games.
They get tweaked their games to be better players, e.
I mean, all this training crap don't mean unless you're a young player and you're slowly developing.
I don't How many picture taken with what would Woody and oh, man, he has a mask on.
He threw the ball at the kids like who gives a ****? It's just trash, dammit! Oh, gosh.
