00:01:53
Like I said, I'm feeling good.
00:01:54
Two wins away from the NBA championship, so I I couldn't be happier.
00:01:58
I hold that thought he hold that thought because, of course, we're gonna start there.
00:02:03
We kick off the show with the NBA playoffs.
00:02:06
Last time that we were here, the finals hasn't quite kicked off yet.
00:02:11
I believe it was gained five of the Western Conference finals.
00:02:14
The heat were already in.
00:02:16
Um, Brandon, I remind you that you picked the nuggets to win that game.
00:02:22
Um, the cold you picked last week, we could go on the record.
00:02:27
Oh, yeah, I was I was I was hopeful.
00:02:31
I Look, I just wanna come on.
00:02:33
Everybody knows the Lakers gonna win.
00:02:35
I mean, ****, I just want to see some good basketball, that's all.
00:02:39
Well, it seems like last time we talked to seemed like that was many moons ago, but right now, the Lakers are up 20 in the NBA finals.
00:02:48
Listen minute.
00:02:49
It's not looking good for Miami.
00:02:52
Are we bringing out the brooms or am I jumping the gun with that? We'll start with you, Kwan.
00:02:56
What you think e you better bring them brooms out.
00:03:01
Bring them out.
00:03:02
Bring them out.
00:03:03
Bring them out.
00:03:04
So you think? Well, when the When the sweeping it? No, I'm not going to start with.
00:03:09
Yeah, it's gonna be off in them.
00:03:11
E said last week.
00:03:14
It's It's LeBron a d.
00:03:16
Um, it's the Lakers, you know, is, uh, they're destined to win this.
00:03:23
And look, Miami, they they're fighting hard, you know, kind of coming out the east.
00:03:29
They've had a great run.
00:03:31
And to get to a championship is I mean, it's not hard and, you know, uh, mentally, they may feel that they're not They're still not out of it.
00:03:38
But, I mean, the proof is in the pudding.
00:03:41
That's LeBron.
00:03:42
And they did So bring bring the brooms out.
00:03:47
Yeah, man, it's looking that way, man.
00:03:49
Be what you thinking? I mean, they were already the underdog coming in.
00:03:55
Um, you know, Goran Dragic goes out that Z he's not their best player, but he's a key player.
00:04:03
So you're going up against the pretty much fully loaded Lakers squad who are already favored to win.
00:04:09
It's not looking good.
00:04:11
It's not looking good sweep is possible.
00:04:13
I mean, from Miami To win one, they have to come out like, unbelievably hot, like the Lakers did in game one and then some.
00:04:19
So and I Yeah.
00:04:23
Sweet, sweet.
00:04:25
Wow.
00:04:27
So I don't know how far you want to go with that, Alex.
00:04:29
I know, you know.
00:04:30
Yeah, I know you don't want to jump the gun being the Lakers fan, but being our resident Laker insider in our MBA Insider, what do you think, man? You think this Siri's is over? Miami is a good team.
00:04:43
They're there in the finals for a reason.
00:04:44
So they're down a couple players, Bam and Rogic.
00:04:47
I mean, you know, I'm not gonna get ahead of myself and say that the Lakers are gonna sweep.
00:04:53
I do believe the last time any team but swept in the finals, the Lakers swept the Nets, I think.
00:04:59
And 02 I believe Shaq and Kobe swept him the year before 41 You know, the 70 Sixers and then before that, four to the Pacers.
00:05:09
But look, man, I'm taking it.
00:05:13
Everybody asked me, Like what? Your prediction.
00:05:15
How many games? One game at a time.
00:05:17
Like sometimes teams can get kind of lethargic when they're not playing against star players and our team is down a couple players.
00:05:23
I want the Lakers to take every game seriously.
00:05:25
We win Game three, then I'll get really excited.
00:05:28
Then I'll get really excited.
00:05:30
I bought myself a special bottle or something to celebrate, just in case.
00:05:33
We way pull this thing off yesterday.
00:05:37
So let's let's just get to get past Game three, man.
00:05:41
Like speaking of that man like the Lakers, LeBron a d They seem to be locked in, but especially LeBron like I mean, a d is playing out of this world like I know at the end of the last game I saw the stat line and I'm like, you did that say he was 15 of 20? Yeah, like I'm like, Dude.
00:06:03
So him and LeBron registered 30 plus point games that game, but LeBron, it seems to be like blocked in like no smiling, no nothing.
00:06:14
And it puts me in mind of LeBron that LeBron uh when he was with Miami when they came out, I think Boston Boston was it was a close out game for Boston.
00:06:27
I think it was a Game six in Boston and LeBron came out with the mean mug.
00:06:31
It didn't say a word, I think like 40 to 10 and eight.
00:06:36
But, you know, he was like killing and I've never seen.
00:06:38
I mean, I've seen him play good.
00:06:40
I've seen him ball out, but in that game, like he was locked out, was locked in.
00:06:46
It was like he wasn't gonna miss.
00:06:47
So did you? But But I say that because it seems like some folks are coming at Bronx.
00:06:56
They need a little bit too uptight.
00:06:58
I know he got on his on his teammates about celebrating on the bench.
00:07:02
You think that's hogwash, Or you think LeBron is being being a little bit too too tight on his teammates? Look, LeBron is LeBron for reason, all right? He hey knows he knows how to win.
00:07:17
I mean, he's been he didn't win every final he's been in, but he's been thio over 10 finals like Look it Z, it's Everybody has something to say about LeBron LeBron.
00:07:28
It don't matter what LeBron do.
00:07:29
Somebody gonna have something to say.
00:07:31
You know, I'm Listen, I'm a quiet and I'm an MBA fan, but I'm kind of glad in a way that the Clippers lost, although I didn't want to see the Clippers vs Lakers because I just thought it's ridiculous.
00:07:47
Acquires better than LeBron like that **** stops now like everybody has something to say about what LeBron does.
00:07:54
But he keeps winning.
00:07:56
He's still the best player in the league.
00:07:57
He's winning off and on the court.
00:07:59
I mean, on and off the court.
00:08:00
So yes, Z ****.
00:08:04
Well, I honestly feel so when where he came from two. Now.
00:08:11
And when you come from that winning circle on, you know how to win.
00:08:15
I mean, for playoffs finals, it takes a step.
00:08:19
I mean, every step you go it mentally it takes something to where you know you have to focus and you have to die land because everybody is great at that particular level.
00:08:27
So I agree when when it comes to people saying, you know, whatever they want to say about LeBron or saying that he's second, that's to co I or you know they feel though, Durant.
00:08:38
Yeah, opinionated.
00:08:40
But at the end of the day, I mean, who has been to the finals more than he has who knows how to win? Oh, bending that particularly predicament then LeBron James.
00:08:51
So I mean, I think he knows a little something about, you know, winning championships or what needs to be done.
00:08:57
You know, when it particularly when it comes to the process of winning N B A finals.
00:09:03
So people just need to back up, let him do his thing.
00:09:07
And, you know, it feel a lot better when when they have to ring on their fingers and you know, they're popping the champagne bottles and they're holding up toe hold up the championship trophy.
00:09:17
Look, man, the Kuwaiti talk was always nonsense, and I'm going to save a lot of my bullets for all that stuff.
00:09:23
Once the season is over, quality is overrated.
00:09:26
Bad boy top five player hits that.
00:09:29
That somehow winning that championship last season compared to Jordan.
00:09:35
And he's better than LeBron.
00:09:36
That was that was that was Bs from Jump Street.
00:09:40
He should have been compared to Mike.
00:09:41
He should have been said better than Jordan better than than LeBron.
00:09:44
That was all that that was more anti LeBron than it really was quite being that great.
00:09:50
But I'm gonna get that Let me get back.
00:09:52
That's a great conversation.
00:09:54
Waken.
00:10:01
Dig into it.
00:10:02
I'm just saying he wanted championship And then people said he was as good as people said he was better than LeBron and Doc was comparing him to Michael Jordan.
00:10:09
That was ridiculous.
00:10:11
That was absurd.
00:10:12
But you know, Look, man, you never know how many times you gonna, if ever make it to an MBA Finals.
00:10:18
LeBron is fortunate up there into 10 so he knows what it takes, obviously to get there.
00:10:22
And as his finals record shows right now is three but three and six in the finals, Everybody don't go six.
00:10:28
No, like Mike, right? Like it doesn't always happen.
00:10:30
So if he's hard on his teammates like Kobe said, We played Orlando.
00:10:37
Job's not finished.
00:10:38
Like you got to get through this thing s o.
00:10:41
He said, We're going to celebrate the Western Conference champion, the Western Conference finals win and now get to work.
00:10:46
And just because Miami's down a couple players doesn't mean you get to celebrate like you know, they're good team.
00:10:51
They beat the bucks, you know, I'm saying, like people thought the books were gonna be in the finals this year, so I did say I did, too.
00:10:59
I was one of those people.
00:11:01
Um, I mean, pre co vid Milwaukee.
00:11:03
Look, they look, But that's a regular season basketball for you.
00:11:09
Yeah, I mean, I think, Listen, I think LeBron is one of those players that he's ****ed if you do, ****ed if he don't.
00:11:15
I think we've seen LeBron and, you know and every like, right.
00:11:21
I think we've seen LeBron dancing on the sideline, and I think we've seen LeBron now where he locked in any serious.
00:11:28
So either way, if he would have been, if he would have been chairing with his teammates or clowning on the bench, or they would have crushed them now that he's not smiling and all of that now he's, you know, angry man or whatever the hell, maybe there's nothing.
00:11:43
There's nothing he can do that that won't be under the microscope.
00:11:47
So, um, I just think he locked in, and that's another thing that's been great about these situations, like all the Kobe clips and like you just said Alex.
00:11:56
When Kobe was in the press conference after the game and the guys, the reporter said you should be smiling you up to zero.
00:12:08
He was like, For what? Yeah, what am I What am I smiling for? This it's not over.
00:12:14
So my thing about that is like, Would you not have that particular stress on your on your brain? Like just everything that comes with the whole territory of when he found with the Lakers the legacy, you know, that he's holding pretty much the burden on his shoulders.
00:12:28
Everything that happened with, you know, with Kobe.
00:12:31
And now get into the finals like you.
00:12:34
Would you be smiling? Okay.
00:12:36
He came to the Lakers.
00:12:37
He came to the Lakers when every other all star turned their back on us.
00:12:41
Every other one and he came by himself.
00:12:44
Yeah, e every every all star still turning their back on New York.
00:12:50
But look, it's a it's a mindset, you know? It's a mindset, and people like some people, just won't get it.
00:12:59
Like people who look and just see the game on the TV like they think of it like if they were in that position, they would think it's over.
00:13:07
And that's why you have you have you have folks like LeBron and then you have everybody else.
00:13:14
I'm saying It's like LeBron knows this is this is business.
00:13:19
Miami is a good team.
00:13:22
This is the N B A and the lake Look, LeBron is great.
00:13:28
He makes it look.
00:13:30
He makes it look easy.
00:13:32
And that's why people are like, Yo, what do you stressing for? But LeBron is like this, things that he's doing out there that the typical casual fans can't, you know, really see.
00:13:41
They don't notice just from his, you know, where he positions himself on the court.
00:13:45
Everything he does on the court is intentional.
00:13:48
From where he's standing Thio, who he's passing to, he's setting up a past 3456 even not he passes before plays before.
00:13:58
He's probably already played the game throughout in his head, so he makes it look easy.
00:14:02
But that's that's work.
00:14:04
He's got to stay focused in order in order to do that and close out the deal.
00:14:08
But people don't get that.
00:14:09
That's why you got you got people with mindsets like LeBron and like I said, you got everybody else they would let they would they type people that would let another team come back 31 Not yeah, I can believe just like you said Brandon.
00:14:23
Everybody's good, right? Everybody, everybody n b A.
00:14:28
Everybody has premier talent at that at that level.
00:14:31
So even though this LeBron James and even though you know now they're like, there's no guarantee that they're going to get back to the championship.
00:14:38
So, uh, that up and that mindset, I would think like like the Kevin Hart doc like, Don't believe this up, you know, because there, you know, you don't know.
00:14:49
You don't know when it comes to the next season or the season after that.
00:14:54
You know what I'm saying? So you better get it now.
00:14:57
And this is This is the first time in LeBron's career in the finals he's been up to.
00:15:01
Oh, and that's why when I heard that I was like he's never been up to before in the finals.
00:15:05
E He knows what that steak Mhm.
00:15:09
I was gonna say that I think LeBron I think you're looking at a person who knows, like you said knows what's at stake.
00:15:17
He knows how hard it is to get there, and he knows how hard it is to win those four games.
00:15:21
You know what I mean? Like he knows is difficult at this.
00:15:25
Stay on this stage in the finals.
00:15:27
He knows you also.
00:15:29
It is.
00:15:30
And I think if I'm not mistaking and Alice, you can correct me if I'm wrong.
00:15:33
I believe him.
00:15:34
Rondo and J.
00:15:35
R.
00:15:36
Smith and only ones on the team with championships championship experience.
00:15:40
Dwight, been there, Dwight.
00:15:43
The reason why we didn't get a Kobe LeBron Finals, Remember? Because White Orlando knocked off LeBron.
00:15:47
But yeah, like Yo Dwight's a great example.
00:15:52
He never knew.
00:15:53
He didn't know if he'd ever get back to the finals.
00:15:55
Like Like you never know we're going to get one, get one chance, But then to get back, like, how much? How much effort do you think it takes LeBron to keep his body healthy in years? 17 to B E.
00:16:06
People think he just stepping on the court and just busting.
00:16:09
Everybody asked.
00:16:10
It takes year round diet like he's got doctors, I guess, family. Clearly.
00:16:15
I mean, look, they've got a lot of money, but like he probably is up all night doing different things.
00:16:19
It's a sacrifice man.
00:16:21
It also speaks to the respect that he has for Spoelstra and Heat.
00:16:26
He knows Spoelstra is is Hey, he's a great coach, man.
00:16:30
E think I think supposed has proven that now he's coach without LeBron and Wade, Dwyane Wade for for quite some time in the heat have been.
00:16:39
They've been a staple in the East Coast man, and now they're They're in the finals, you know, without LeBron or Wade.
00:16:46
You know, so supposed to coach.
00:16:49
And LeBron knows that.
00:16:51
But that's the greatest of LeBron LeBron knows.
00:16:54
You see that Clipper Iman Shumpert when he's talking about LeBron LeBron knows who's on your coaching staff and how the mugs coach, like, how many people do that I like like you know what? He's bringing.
00:17:07
Look, man, Jimmy, I like Jimmy.
00:17:09
You know, I'm saying, Look, you could play Jimmy ball, you play.
00:17:13
Just remind me the movie.
00:17:15
Me and my lady is watching the movie.
00:17:16
It was a sport would Dreamgirls.
00:17:19
Jimmy got soul.
00:17:20
Jimmy got so Jimmy, you know what I mean? He's all right, so But you know what the most the most beautiful part about this is LeBron and anti Davison.
00:17:32
Lockstep, lockstep, Andi, even Dwyane Wade said Dwyane Wade tweeted the other day.
00:17:38
Anthony Davis is Talent is the best compliment to LeBron James.
00:17:41
Talent like they the way they meshed together even more so than D.
00:17:44
Wade because there was something some overlap with them and Dwyane Wade.
00:17:47
And obviously they won two rings, right? But like the way their talent fits.
00:17:52
Yeah, yeah.
00:17:53
LeBron's looking at Anthony Davis like, Yeah, he this boy might extend my career a couple of years.
00:17:57
Yeah, and I noticed.
00:18:00
I'm glad you brought that up because I noticed the media also, that's something they also trying to play.
00:18:06
They're trying to play all LeBron might be jealous of a D.
00:18:09
And I'm like, what? Not even like Come on, you know, like like LeBron is one of those players that Yeah, he's great.
00:18:20
You know what I think I said this before.
00:18:22
I think I said this one off the record.
00:18:25
LeBron is one of those players that I kinda in that mindset that I put next to Obama like when Obama was in office and all the **** that was thrown at him and able to keep his cool that entire time.
00:18:38
Like I feel like that's amazing that LeBron has not had a slip up in all these years and, you know, saying, saying, with Obama in eight years, never lost his cool to the point where at least we saw it anyway.
00:18:53
So I just feel like, you know, they find they try to find anything to hate against this dude, man.
00:19:00
And it's like to the point where it's so petty that you know, they're going down to the point of, you know, Now I see people posting.
00:19:09
Oh, this is one of the most born Finals, you know, Should like they did.
00:19:15
They did this **** to Jordan, man.
00:19:16
They do it to anybody who was great when Jordan was great.
00:19:21
Oh, he's a ball hog.
00:19:22
Oh, here's the Ron Harper.
00:19:24
He's the Jordan stopper.
00:19:25
Or, you know, if you're a great player, people going to say **** about probably, I don't know, they might have said **** about magic.
00:19:33
I don't imagine might be like the only one.
00:19:35
Remember the car Magic? A coach killer when he got West was at West, Paul fired, I think.
00:19:40
Before Riley took over, they said Magic was a coach.
00:19:42
Tragic Johnson, coach killer s so a lot of good.
00:19:46
All the greats, all the greats go through it, especially if you are the best player in the league.
00:19:52
There's always somebody in the league who's better than you because you don't do whatever.
00:19:55
He shoots 69% from the free throw line.
00:19:57
Yeah, but he averages 38 points in 25 rebounds.
00:20:01
Kids, that's That's the part where I felt like like the anointment of CO.
00:20:08
I was kind of like backlash to LeBron's greatness.
00:20:11
Like, Look, man, I don't wanna be Oh yeah, no up.
00:20:16
Look, tell me Legitimately, tell me what year was quiet.
00:20:21
The best player in the NBA when KD was healthy, he was never better than KD.
00:20:26
He was never better than LeBron and I'm, hey, never been better than Steph Curry.
00:20:30
Steph Curry's impact on the game of basketball is greater than quads.
00:20:33
So at what point? Why was quiet anointed other than he was quiet and people were sick and tired of LeBron.
00:20:41
I agree with you that that LeBron is a better basketball player, but I co I I mean, I'm not going to say he's good as your I really don't like doing comparisons.
00:20:51
I don't either.
00:20:52
But Dr for instance, for instance, you your that's that's a good point.
00:20:57
But for me, like when you when you talk about Steph and you talk about how I like to me, I can't definitively say one player is more impactful than the other.
00:21:08
I mean, they've both transformed franchises.
00:21:11
I mean, anywhere kuai goes, I mean, he co he is like the diet LeBron Anywhere he goes.
00:21:16
That team is likely at least contending for a championship where he did go to ready made franchises, though, right, like San Antonio with San Antonio and Toronto was already a playoff tested team.
00:21:28
And he, like we were talking about those that's a legit, you know, like he did kind of go to ready made situations.
00:21:35
Hey, yes, but my argument to that is what championship team, you know, had bums on it like a bunch of bums like it's like completely, completely agree.
00:21:48
It's just that when the quad jump, like all these other guys e you know whoever's on the screen at the time.
00:21:55
I mean his best argument is the Toronto championship because you know, if that's so, people are talking about the Lakers beating up Miami team that's injured.
00:22:06
That Golden State team was decimated with injuries, right? Like if they were healthy.
00:22:11
The one game Katie played 12 minutes, he had 12 points in 12 minutes, and then they were busting Toronto's ass.
00:22:16
Eso I mean part of me, part of me feels like and this is no shade towards CO.
00:22:24
I think quiet is a good player.
00:22:26
But part of me feels like if that was LeBron went in against that Golden State team, they would put an asterisk next to it like they're trying to put one next to this one.
00:22:36
So I just feel like that's what puts LeBron above and beyond a lot of these other players because they even though they are considered to be better than him and I'm talking about the K.
00:22:48
D s.
00:22:49
I'm talking about the quad.
00:22:50
Some people will put them above LeBron.
00:22:52
They still don't carry that extra weight that he does.
00:22:56
And for me, that says a lot.
00:23:00
You know what I mean? Like I spoke on the last show.
00:23:03
How within be how the cuteness is starting to wear off for some of these players, right? There was an excuse built in excuses for a lot of these players.
00:23:12
Like and be like Harden like a lot of these dudes, like it's time for them to win some playoff games.
00:23:19
Building.
00:23:20
Be honest, you honest to you.
00:23:22
Honest to like, if there's no LeBron no quiet in the East What happened, bro? E mean, that's a legit like Yeah, yeah, I mean, so how you m v p and Defensive player of the year and you lost in the second round? Yeah, it's a regular.
00:23:43
I agree with you.
00:23:44
I give everything I give everyone award.
00:23:48
LeBron really ahead for years.
00:23:49
E mean ****.
00:23:50
What is he not the best player on the court? I don't know, but way got haters out there.
00:23:58
Eso I mean, like I said, I feel like he catches.
00:24:01
He does with a little more.
00:24:02
There's no excuses for LeBron.
00:24:04
Nobody's gonna give him any excuse.
00:24:05
I think they find reason to take away from what he's done right, But and then this is a perfect Segway for the next thing I wanted to bring up to talk about what you guys So our boy co y I mean our boy Kyrie Makesem, make some noise this week.
00:24:25
Um and you know, he He said some things that people are taking as a shot or possible shot at LeBron E.
00:24:34
I don't know if you could see it on the screen, but this is what Kyrie said.
00:24:39
And I quote, this is the first time in my career I could look down and be like that mother****er can make that shot to.
00:24:48
So a lot of people said, You know, I mean, and that was that was based off a question, Um took hiree on being the best option in the late game.
00:24:59
So I'm gonna ask you guys, this man, because Kyrie has come out since then and you know he's made videos.
00:25:07
He's kind of recanting things.
00:25:11
Is that a legit? Is it legit for someone like LeBron to take that as a shot at him? Listen, this reminds me of the time one of our friends said Ron Artest was the best to garden MBA and then went later came back.
00:25:23
He blamed it on being hungry.
00:25:24
That's what this reminds me of, like Listen, man, Uh oh.
00:25:30
Shot.
00:25:31
Look, people are posting stats online about late games and how LeBron it scores more late game to Kyrie.
00:25:37
Like all Okay.
00:25:39
Kyrie knew what he was doing.
00:25:40
He knew what he was doing.
00:25:41
Then people got on him.
00:25:43
And then he released a statement on I g saying, why must it be brother against brother? When he made that statement, he knew what he was doing.
00:25:52
But come on, E.
00:25:55
Yeah.
00:25:56
He knew what he was saying.
00:25:57
You know, he knew that it was a subliminal, subliminal shot, you know, and from LeBron perspective, man.
00:26:05
Just just go.
00:26:06
Keep winning, man.
00:26:07
I wouldn't even worry about that.
00:26:08
That stuff that you know that Kyra is putting out, obviously he feels a certain way about it, you know? Obviously he's the one.
00:26:16
Yeah.
00:26:17
I mean, he's doing that feel salty about the whole ordeal, about the whole situation.
00:26:20
Because you won't saying that when when LeBron come back to Cleveland initially, you know, I'm saying, like, you may have had a loose, you know, may have felt that way about it, but he wasn't saying that at the end of the day, the brother, the brother help me get a ring.
00:26:35
So I mean, what what What is the What is the What is the What is the shout for? Like Why? Why? Why? Why? Well, the little bit of the little bit of legitimate, the bit of legitimacy that his statement does have is that you know, But this is also I mean, more bronze slurping here.
00:26:54
But this is part of Bron.
00:26:56
LeBron being great like he understands his strength and his weakness is like he knew deep in the game, like the percentages.
00:27:03
Kyrie is going to get a shot or car.
00:27:05
He's gonna have a favorable matchup over here, LeBron to give him the ball.
00:27:08
Say, Kyrie, do you think Take this shot.
00:27:10
I have no problems about it, but I mean, that's not that doesn't mean that LeBron can't take that shot.
00:27:16
It just LeBron just realized Hey, this guy's got a He's got a favorable matchup and he's known for scoring late in games that we have a great chance of winning.
00:27:28
So give him the freaking ball.
00:27:30
But that's not like like I said.
00:27:32
That's not to say LeBron can't make that shot.
00:27:34
And I mean, furthermore, we're talking about like Kyrie.
00:27:37
Okay, It's the same brother who think the Earth is flat, so sometimes he just says things I'm pretty sure you know later on in life he's probably going to take it back.
00:27:46
So I I don't think I don't think it's like a part of it might have been a shot, But sometimes I think just Kyrie.
00:27:52
Sometimes he just be talking, you know, and that this is one of those times I wish I had to clap.
00:27:59
I wish I had to clip loaded up.
00:28:02
But did you all see his I g live video? E.
00:28:05
I heard it. I didn't watch it.
00:28:07
Yeah, I did watch it.
00:28:08
I watched it when he had, like, the instance burning.
00:28:10
And you see that? It's annoying.
00:28:14
So you know what? Like Carrie is now striking me as a person that just started smoking weed.
00:28:21
Now he's like, and now he's like, You know, he's got to be Mr Philosophical Thinking type guy.
00:28:31
He just reminds me of that now because like some of the **** he was saying in that I'm just like, you know, he's like your state woke people and, you know, it's like all right, well, like, you know, I feel like he called him unfair backlash about the stuff that they say he started leading into the bubble with, you know, making sure the players were making the right decision and all of that stuff, right? So But I feel like this thing e feel like Ivory is still like trying to find himself right.
00:29:04
And it's weird because he I I feel like he has never gotten over.
00:29:13
Even.
00:29:14
This is where I feel like this shot comes from, even though he hit of a huge shot in the N B A Finals when they won the championship, right? I feel like then, later on, he wanted to be traded all of that stuff.
00:29:28
I feel like he has never gotten over the fact that he is more and and this is gonna sound like a shot.
00:29:36
But Scottie Pippen? I want anybody to know Scottie Pippen is my favorite player of all time, but I think Kyrie is having a hard time accepting that he's more Scottie Pippen.
00:29:46
Then he is Michael Jordan, right? Like he he hasn't shown that he can be the man on the team like in Boston.
00:29:54
That **** didn't work and then if Katie comes back 80% healthy, he's not gonna be the man on that team.
00:30:02
So I think he struggles with that.
00:30:05
And I think he's still trying to find himself and find and be able to put himself in that mindset that like you.
00:30:11
All right? Yeah, I could be great Hall of Fame where I could be a top 50 player or whatever and I could be the second best player on this team.
00:30:19
So I don't know.
00:30:21
I just feel like I do agree with you.
00:30:23
Jo Brand And I do think he he, um I do think that he he just speaks and I think he thinks it sounds good.
00:30:32
And then once it comes back out waxing what everybody else is it.
00:30:36
He realized that it sounds dumb as hell.
00:30:39
I hope it's not mental illness, because if it is, I take back everything I said.
00:30:44
I'm sorry Kyrie, but really he was saying some wild ****, bro.
00:30:50
They just hired Steve Nash and Kyrie comes out and says, I don't really see us having a head coach of a collaborative effort where sometimes I'm the coach, k D c.
00:30:58
Coach, assistant coach.
00:30:59
Come on, dog.
00:31:01
They did hire somebody with no coaching experience.
00:31:04
True e it probably is a collaborative effort in the huddle.
00:31:09
I I just wouldn't come out and say that they like they like the old Washington football team.
00:31:15
Everything that goes on the locker room is out in the air and the public now, well, that was There's a There's a there's a shot E That was the shot E way e.
00:31:37
I don't know if you wanna return fire before I move on e the food, but not when it comes to the next.
00:31:42
Oh, next to the next.
00:31:48
Well, speaking of speaking of, you know, football, typically, this is when I m b a insider leaves us.
00:31:57
But I want to invite him to stay in on this next segment of the show as you for no or us for as you three.
00:32:05
Now we did a show one covert and youth sports, but it seems like we should have done a show on Cove.
00:32:14
It in Professional Sports way knew it was coming because the NFL right now is being marred with this cove it situation.
00:32:26
As of right now, the Titans Steeler game has been postponed.
00:32:31
Do the 16 members of the Titans organization tested positive for covert, and that number, well, appears to still be growing.
00:32:40
We then later got the news that Cam Newton tested positive, which postponed that game at least a day late last night.
00:32:49
A saint's player tested positive for the moment, which then was putting the Saints and Lions game in jeopardy.
00:32:57
But it appears that that game is still gonna happen today because that was supposedly a false positive.
00:33:04
Yeah, by questioning, young man.
00:33:08
Oh, that's an NFL finished the season because, I mean, we've seen this with the Titans organization itself, 16 members and growing.
00:33:19
So we see how fast they could go because House fastest could spread because I believe it started with three positive test earlier in the week.
00:33:29
Now, we're up to 16 within a couple of days.
00:33:32
And then, like I said, that number can continue to grow.
00:33:37
Yo, do they finish, man? Will they shut this season down early due to Covic running through the NFL, I feel they're going to try to squeeze as much money as possible that they can.
00:33:50
But ultimately, man, they're gonna have to shut this down.
00:33:52
This is just what you just said.
00:33:55
You know? It went from 3 to 16 like that, they're gonna have to shut it down.
00:34:00
There's no way that you can have that particular contact contact that sport.
00:34:06
Everything that was running around with Cove it and not spread, you know, they're gonna have to mhm.
00:34:15
I think it's going to depend on you know, how these players end up medically.
00:34:23
If you know, these players have tested positive if they remain asymptomatic and, um, you know, they're able to test positive again and get back on the field within, ah, couple weeks or whatever and they see the majority of players.
00:34:43
That's the result for the majority of of players who test positive or who are in close proximity to somebody who test positive.
00:34:49
I think this season has a good chance of going on.
00:34:52
However, if one of these players comes back or, you know, multiple players come back and they start exhibiting symptoms that are more serious, that quite possibly could hospitalize them.
00:35:06
Then I think at that point, um, from a PR standpoint, you've you've gotta you gotta shut this season down, but I I agree with quant it It depends on how these players come out otherwise, yeah, they're gonna milk this season is Aziz long as they can.
00:35:23
I mean, look, man, I agree with that.
00:35:25
I think the NFL is gonna milk it forever.
00:35:28
I mean, and the NFL is probably the most defiant sports league of all of them, right? Like Goodell was, they're gonna push this thing as long as they can.
00:35:37
And I was just reading, like in college football.
00:35:40
Half of the power five conferences won't even release their covert data As how many players have called it.
00:35:46
I think we might get to a point where the NFL stops releasing the data.
00:35:49
E mean, so look, we just talked about the MBA, man, that Adam Silver, an MBA, figured out how to make it work.
00:35:58
And he was on the podcast this week and he said every day he thought he was gonna get a phone call, that there was an outbreak and thank God.
00:36:04
So far, there have been no issues with MBA.
00:36:06
And what what these sports leagues have to admit is some sports leagues arm or conducive to controlling the coronavirus than others.
00:36:15
The N B.
00:36:16
A basketball court is a 94 ft court, right? There's less players.
00:36:19
There's less personnel.
00:36:21
Football is 100 yard field.
00:36:23
There's all these players in person, like football probably shouldn't be played during the coronavirus.
00:36:29
That's that's probably the truth.
00:36:31
Because are you guys tell me your players like are they allowed to go home? Or they put them in hotels like they can just go on much as they want The coaches, the staff, I mean, pretty much pretty much going go wherever they want, pretty much whenever they please.
00:36:47
You know, it's not MBA where they have a particular bubble to where, like, you know, they have to come in and stay Or, you know, they have certain requirements like, No, they go in, they go out, you know, it zur they don't they don't be Oh, go out.
00:37:01
They don't come in and come freely, but yeah, but yeah, you're right.
00:37:05
Yeah, I mean, I think beginning of the particular season they were, it was when I saw the hard knocks.
00:37:11
Um, initially, they were testing, you know, players that were coming in, coaches, whatever.
00:37:17
But I mean, it's nowhere near how how you know the MBA has it, but I mean, so when When the When the players leave like the game or the arena.
00:37:27
You're trusting that they're going home when they leave that they're taking precautions.
00:37:31
Also, right players and personnel, The NFL trusting that they're taking precautions on with so many players and personnel.
00:37:38
You're talking what hundreds of people per staff every week.
00:37:41
You know, everybody is not taking precautions.
00:37:44
Eso Well, what? To get to get back into the facilities people have to test to get back into the facility.
00:37:50
So it's not just you walking in and out the door freely, like, you know, you got a car.
00:37:55
So they are.
00:37:56
They are testing, But But if you think it's dormant for two weeks, right, like the NBA was like When you come in here, you're isolated for two weeks.
00:38:06
We're going to test you every day and then you could get released into you know, the rest of the put the rest of the players.
00:38:11
Yeah, it's really not to that magnitude.
00:38:14
Hey, don't say it like it's clearly not to that.
00:38:17
So that's why, to me, the numbers for the first couple of weeks man was like they were unbelievable, like no positive tests.
00:38:28
I think they have the numbers.
00:38:30
I think they were man like, I think the first the first positive test that came out during the season was last week.
00:38:37
What? I think it was a J.
00:38:38
Tyrell of the Atlanta Falcons.
00:38:41
Hey, didn't play last week, but it didn't get this much.
00:38:44
It didn't get this much pub.
00:38:46
It was like Yo, he was added to the covert list or whatever, but they didn't go on to, You know, I know that game wasn't postponed or anything like that.
00:38:55
So that's that's what's a little ironic to me right now is like Now they're doing all of this.
00:39:03
Oh, hold up, Let's postpone games or whatever.
00:39:05
But like when it happened last week with a J.
00:39:09
Carroll, there was none of that talk with the Falcons game being pushed back and all of that.
00:39:13
But like for the N B, I mean for the NFL that have what they were claiming to be, no positive tests until now.
00:39:21
That was amazing to me because of how they're doing it.
00:39:24
Even with even with MLB, like we saw how it was in the beginning with MLB, you know, that was positive, test popping up now all of a sudden nothing.
00:39:33
I do think it's some some ****ing or some numbers going on, but I just think I just think that now that you can't it's hard to hide 16 people.
00:39:43
You know what I mean? A one organization that that's popped up would be No, no, I was just gonna say if if if somebody's fund is definitely the NFL, if it's fudging the numbers because they're using the same company.
00:39:56
The MBA is using the bio reference laboratories to do the testing.
00:40:01
So, um, by the bio bio reference laboratories eyes the name of the company, um, in the n b A.
00:40:09
Is using that same company for their for their testing.
00:40:13
I thought you said Darko Industries about the oh, sorry about that.
00:40:26
On, then, a zoo.
00:40:30
You mentioned how you know when when you go into that MBA bubble, you're isolated before you are released into, you know, the bubble population in the NFL.
00:40:42
According to their protocol here, you're not isolated until you test positive or somebody has tested positive and you were deemed to be in close proximity of that person.
00:40:51
Then you are isolated with the N B.
00:40:54
A they tested in their isolating you first, and then they'll release you into the, uh, into the population.
00:41:00
But it's like like you mentioned Alex.
00:41:03
It's just so much personnel, so much more personnel for a football team.
00:41:07
I mean, players, coaching staff and all the support staff around it.
00:41:12
So I hope they figure it out.
00:41:15
But because I'm clearly a football fan, But I don't know, man.
00:41:21
Yeah, I mean, well, I I will mention this last thing before we move on.
00:41:25
Um, I noticed that Cadel has recently said that he keep all teams in hotels, but it would be he doesn't know if the n f L P A would agree to that.
00:41:38
So I guess that's something that they considering toe lock teams down in hotels.
00:41:44
But I still don't.
00:41:45
But the aspect that that doesn't make sense what that is, you still travel.
00:41:51
You know what I'm saying? There's still a travel aspect, so I guess maybe he's saying if they're at home while they're at home, he locked them away in hotels away from their families, but they still have to travel to these other these other cities.
00:42:05
Um, so I just don't I just don't know how how that will work, man.
00:42:10
Look, man, the W N B A in the NBA and Major League soccer figured it out right in NHL.
00:42:17
NHL did it? Yeah, like if if if the players, if football is just too big of a personnel sport to do this canceled the daggone season.
00:42:29
What are we talking about here? Money E. I mean, yeah.
00:42:34
I mean, the the billionaires will be fine right there. They're not.
00:42:38
They're not hurting for money.
00:42:39
Maybe the maybe the staff and and some of the players.
00:42:42
But like, but either that, you know that are isolate isolate everybody to a certain to a site and play all the games on a site.
00:42:51
I mean, I don't know if there's a site around the United States that's big enough to house all these players like Disney World, but it's gotta be somewhere taking never number one ****.
00:43:02
I mean, where they never never land.
00:43:05
Never.
00:43:06
Definitely a, uh, Neverland Ranch.
00:43:12
But there's no football.
00:43:14
There's no stadium there.
00:43:16
Uh, you know, a Peter Pan, right? The amu*****t park never never learned.
00:43:25
E mean, it's gotta be somewhere.
00:43:29
Where can you yo just like if you draft.
00:43:33
If you take him to a hotel and travel and go to another state, Yo, chances are someone has it is going to get out.
00:43:39
Broke it in that particular state just or designate like designate four stadiums that are within close proximity of flying to each other and have all the games played in those four stadiums.
00:43:49
Do you one on each one on each coast or one on East Coast? Yeah.
00:43:56
East, East, west, north, south, You know, just do that.
00:44:00
Yeah.
00:44:01
You mentioned something that actually just kind of, like, hit me.
00:44:03
It's not gonna hurt the billionaires, right from a money perspective.
00:44:07
So how come the billionaires aren't saying anything about this? How come they're not like, yo, cancel the season? If it's not gonna hurt their pockets, how they're making, They're making money while the seasons going on.
00:44:18
But look, the players players air, dispense dispensable man like expendable.
00:44:23
They don't care.
00:44:24
I saw someone say that player catching Kobe is like tearing his a c l like No, it's not the same thing.
00:44:30
Buddy like this is different.
00:44:33
And also again, it zits money.
00:44:37
These this NFL brings in a lot of money for these cities.
00:44:42
I mean, you talk about cities like like Cleveland.
00:44:45
For instance, when LeBron left Cleveland, it was like, Yo, we have nothing else downtown, You know? So and it's like that in a lot of NFL cities you talk about like, Jacksonville.
00:44:58
I've been in Jacksonville.
00:45:00
Look, I didn't think that I could be.
00:45:02
I don't think it was possible to be bored in Florida.
00:45:05
Uh, I was bored as hell.
00:45:07
Jackson watching way might have some listening from Jackson.
00:45:11
I they'll they'll tell you.
00:45:13
E went to the beach.
00:45:18
That was nice, but there's nothing.
00:45:20
There's nothing out there.
00:45:21
There's nothing out there to do. And they have a downtown.
00:45:23
So I mean that that type of thing is bringing, you know, lots of money.
00:45:28
It's fueling the local economy.
00:45:30
E mean you talk about the other local bars, all the local businesses that feed off of what's happening.
00:45:36
So it's you can't just It is at its core, just a sport.
00:45:43
But from an economic standpoint, it is a business.
00:45:46
It is a business that generates a lot of dollars in a lot of small businesses depend on it, So e mean, this is a conversation, probably for another time, but I thought about this with N b. A.
00:45:58
At some point, sports leagues need to stop forcing franchises into cities that really can't economically support themselves.
00:46:06
Well, if they're doing that, Teoh help generate money, right? But then, But when they do that, they give free land to the owner to build the stadium free tax dollars.
00:46:16
And like all the money you give to an MBA or NFL owner to put up a stadium, that money could be used for jobs and education.
00:46:23
For the people that already are there the fuel, the economy.
00:46:26
It isn't like the billionaire owners coming out of their own pocket.
00:46:29
So put it in cities that could actually support it.
00:46:32
And I know there's only so many, but I'm just saying, like I got it is probably conversation another day.
00:46:37
But this is a yeah, I think everything that they have the Giant and just put into the Jets.
00:46:45
Yeah, a disaster, which is a good A.
00:46:53
That is a good second.
00:46:55
But I will say this a man, I said.
00:46:59
I said going into the season that by week eight week eight the NFL season will be postponed or shut down if it continues to go in this route.
00:47:12
Man, my prediction may be right.
00:47:15
I hope they figure it out.
00:47:17
Um, I hope the safety of the players and the personnel is at the forefront of this situation.
00:47:23
I don't believe that it is, but we'll see, man.
00:47:27
We will see.
00:47:28
So I guess now we move on to our favorite part of the show.
00:47:33

00:51:57
If Detroit within this week, then I'm a jump on their bandwagon.

00:52:20
They ain't doing ****.
00:52:22

00:52:56
****.
00:52:59
Um, you know what? If they played each other last week, I probably would have thought the same way.
00:53:05
And I think we all picked Miami to lose last week.
00:53:08
And Miami made everybody look, I picked.
00:53:11
I actually picked them to win last week.
00:53:13
What Negro did nobody in Miami? I picked Miami to win that Thursday night game.
00:53:19
You did? Thank you.
00:53:21
Did you did You did.
00:53:24
Okay, I take that back.

00:53:36
Yeah.
00:53:37
I got Seattle this week 28 to 10.
00:53:39
I think Russell e think Russell goes off this week again and continues his, uh, his NFL m v p run.
00:53:50
I'm giving Miami some credit this week after I think that you know what I think that's the week that Fitzgerald starts to look a little if he and then they start looking towards tour tour. Yeah.
00:54:02
Good point.
00:54:03
Okay.
00:54:04
Next E thought he was.

00:54:24
Looking alright, Charges.
00:54:26
I'm I'm a little bit disappointed in how they've been playing.
00:54:29
So, um, coming into Tampa Bay, Tampa went in 23 charges 17.
00:54:39
23 17 Tampa Who? You gotta be close.
00:54:43
I think it's gonna be that type of game.
00:54:46
23 17.
00:54:47
But I think Tampa Bay, um, scores late.
00:54:50
Tampa Bay 31 17.
00:54:52
Mhm.
00:54:54
Okay, I got Tampa 26 21.
00:55:00

00:55:02
I think the charge The charge has been looking pretty good, but I'm gonna go.
00:55:04

00:55:05
I think Tampa and at home, we'll we'll do that thing next up.
00:55:10
The Baltimore Ravens will travel 95.
00:55:14
Take a short trip now 95 south to face the Washington Football Club or Team 1 p.m. Kickoff.

00:55:26
You said What? Oclock way.
00:55:32
We got handed last week by the Cleveland Browns.
00:55:36
I don't think it's winning this game.
00:55:38
I don't I don't see it.
00:55:39
Um, and since my lady, she's a Ravens fan.
00:55:43

31 7.
00:55:56
Really? You pick, you pick it against your squad B e would to picking a squad for your boo a z e o u e Don't I don't I don't think it's one of the way lost the Browns last week.
00:56:18
We got destroyed by the Brown Joe and then Lamar Jackson.
00:56:22
They're looking their chops off of that Monday night loss.
00:56:25
They took the Chiefs.
00:56:26
You really think we're going in? We're gonna go in and do something.
00:56:28
I don't I don't see it.
00:56:30
I just don't see it, so I don't either.
00:56:33
I got Baltimore winning 37 13 and 13 was generous.
00:56:40
Look, man as you.
00:56:42
Aldo Bottom was my team.
00:56:44
There's been a It was a lot of a lot of fans of the team now 95 cells talking a lot of **** after we lost to Kansas City and we rightfully so we deserve some of the backlash.
00:56:58
We got our ass whipped.
00:56:59
Didn't look good, but then when they started talking smack, my score is going to reflect what I need to see.
00:57:08
Just just to shut the fans up of the Washington football team.
00:57:13
I have Baltimore 65 Washington.
00:57:16
Nothing.
00:57:20
E need this to happen.
00:57:22
E need this to happen for some Washington e the old Wallace.
00:57:34
I eat big l a Adams on corn.
00:57:39
I think you might have been talking a little smack to this week after we took that loss to K.
00:57:43
C.
00:57:44
So Okay, what did I say? I haven't said anything.
00:57:47
I don't know kwon, but I just need more e just because I'm a Washington e apologize e.
00:57:55
I'm throwing a false if I'm throwing a friendly fire your way.
00:57:58
But e need Baltimore than humble these cats.
00:58:02
These fans, you know, So yeah, 65.
00:58:04
Nothing. 60 minutes.
00:58:06
Yeah, All right, moving on.
00:58:10
We got the Cardinals traveling to Carolina 1 p.m.
00:58:15
Kickoff. Who? You got one.
00:58:17
I got some Carolina boys.
00:58:19
E got Carolina boys winning, even though I like the ant man and what he brings to the table.
00:58:25
Um, coming into Carolina, I got them.
00:58:29
It's gonna be a dogfight.
00:58:31
So I got them.
00:58:32
14 7.
00:58:34
Okay, you got way on the same wave.
00:58:39
This this, uh, this week.
00:58:40
But I'm gonna have to go opposite with you on this one, too.
00:58:43
I wanted to pick Carolina.
00:58:45
I like what I look like with Teddy Bridgewater.
00:58:49
I like I like I like, you know, he'd be throwing Dodge.
00:58:51
Uh, but I got cardinals.
00:58:54
24th Night, Teen Quan.
00:58:56
Did you say 14? Seven? Yes.
00:58:58
That s you.
00:59:00
Count you call in the defense of battle? Yeah.
00:59:02
It's gonna be a quarters.
00:59:05
Too many quarters.
00:59:07
Anybody.
00:59:08
I think any person that's causing that team is DeAndre Hopkins.
00:59:11
I think I think Arizona I picked Arizona this week.
00:59:14
I do think it would be a dogfight.
00:59:15
So I agree with you there.
00:59:17
I got Arizona 28 Carolina 27.
00:59:22
Next game, we got our man Brandon Squad the New York football giants traveling to Los Angeles to face the Rams.
00:59:33
It is the first four o'clock ballgame of this week.
00:59:37
Who you got be? I rams 37 to 9, like I don't I just don't see how we blocked Aaron.
00:59:49
Donald, I think he's going to destroy us today.
00:59:53
Um, ****.
00:59:56
So I got way both of y'all picked against your squads this week? Yeah, we have.
01:00:01
We can't.
01:00:03
We will start winning when our offensive line can run, block and pass block consistently, they can't.
01:00:12
And today they face arguably the best player in football arguably.
01:00:18
I mean, he's a defensive tackle.
01:00:19
He could get 20 sacks.
01:00:20
I mean, you know, he's there's no way we could block them.
01:00:25
Qanoon e I feel a shot coming, but who? You got one? Well, since the fact that last week they got ran off the field by fourth string bums for spring bums, okay, and got destroyed, literally.
01:00:43
I'm gonna go with you.
01:00:44
I'm gonna go with the story that you have.
01:00:46
Mike. I'm gonna go with 62.
01:00:48
And for the mere fact that giant suck.
01:00:53
Uh, Aaron Donald is the best player on the NFL right now.
01:00:57
And last week I was showing clips that he literally picked up with one arm and dropped him on his neck.
01:01:04
Okay, so he's gonna do the same thing to Daniel Jones.
01:01:08
And I'm sorry, but Daniel Jones, he's gonna get destroyed.
01:01:13
It's not even gonna be a game, you know, Like they're gonna be Oh, man, he may.
01:01:19
He may pull Avante Vontae Davis, and he may retire at halftime.
01:01:23
And maybe those games he's gonna he's gonna get destroyed so giants don't have a chance in this.
01:01:31
Wow.
01:01:32
Well, look, listen, I agree with you all and down on his **** near, if not the best player in football, what he's doing to these offensive lineman Like the way he tossing him around like they are £150 men is amazing.
01:01:47
I got the Rams 34 the Giants 14.
01:01:50
That zone that's being generous 14 is being generous.
01:01:55
I don't even know score today.
01:01:58
Oh, man, wait.
01:01:59
I skipped one.
01:02:00
I skipped 11 PM game.
01:02:02
We I skipped the Minnesota Vikings traveling to Houston to face the The Texans in the O for game.
01:02:09
I can't believe both of these teams are have zero wins so far.
01:02:13
So who you all got, man? Who you got? Kwan p.
01:02:17
T. I love you to defer to this one.

Um, 21 10.
01:02:35
All right.
01:02:36
Yeah, I went with Houston.
01:02:37
I think I like Houston a little better than the Minnesota.
01:02:41
Like I said, I can't believe both of these teams that have no wins so far.
01:02:45
But I'm gonna go with Houston getting their first win. 26.

01:04:14
I'm standing there waiting, e Like what Gruden is doing so far? Yeah.
01:04:19
Las Vegas.
01:04:20
Las Vegas has been looking pretty good, but I think I'm gonna be the only one on the opposite side of this one.
01:04:25
I'm going Buffalo 28 14.
01:04:28
They find a way to pull them out, man.
01:04:30
Buffalo finds a way to pull them out.
01:04:31
They find a way toe, lose them in the midst of the game, but then find a way to pull out the win at the end.
01:04:37
So I'm gonna go buffalo.
01:04:40
The Sunday night game.
01:04:41
We got the Philadelphia Eagles traveling to San Francisco to face the 40 Niners.

01:04:55
They always played good games.
01:04:57
Um, e o take San's friend on this one.
01:05:02
It's because they destroyed the Giants last week and they're coming off of, uh, coming off, you know? Hi.
01:05:08
Hi, head.
01:05:09

01:05:21
Who you gotta be.
01:05:22

01:05:27
Yeah, I went with San Francisco this week.
01:05:29
I got I got San Francisco 28 25.
01:05:32
I think I think Carson wins keeps them in the game.
01:05:35
But you know, he'll be constantly in sometime in the game today in the 40 Niners, because I don't think grapple it was playing.
01:05:43
Um, so they are still playing.
01:05:45
Who's Philly? Back up.
01:05:47
Jalen hurts Hurts.
01:05:50
All right, Jalen.
01:05:51
Jalen might get some time today.
01:05:53
It's been rumored that he's gonna play, so I don't know. We'll see.
01:05:56
I think he's there. Back up.
01:05:58
I don't know if he's their main backup of these.
01:06:01
He's supposed to be suiting up, so we'll see.
01:06:05
And then we have the well, we do have to pick the postpone matchup between New England and Kansas City.
01:06:12
We got New England traveling the Kansas City.
01:06:15
The game is supposed to be played.
01:06:16
Now, on Monday night.
01:06:18
Who? You got? Kansas City.
01:06:22
Right? I need I say more.
01:06:25
Uh, Patrick Mahomes? Yes.
01:06:28
What's your school of corn? Uh uh.
01:06:34
Doesn't matter.
01:06:35
It Patrick Mahomes.
01:06:37
Okay, that's your score.
01:06:38
Patrick Mahomes, Who you got? I think I'm probably gonna pick Casey every week.
01:06:45
30 20? Yeah.
01:06:48
I got Kansas City this week, especially after what they did to my boys.
01:06:51
I got him 35 22.
01:06:54
Um, I think I may have picked the score before they got before Cam came down with Corona.
01:07:02
So I figured camp can muster them to about 2021 points or so, But I'm gonna stick to it.
01:07:07
So I'm gonna go Casey 35 22 and then we got the Monday night matchup.
01:07:11
We got the Falcons who looks like e.
01:07:15
No, you said earlier the jets of the worst team in league, But I don't know, bro.
01:07:19
Atlanta looks pretty bad.
01:07:21
Ev Atlanta traveling the green Bay to face the packers.
01:07:25
Who? You got one.
01:07:26
Yeah.
01:07:27
And Rogers about the cup.
01:07:29
He's about to cup 28.
01:07:32
17.
01:07:33
Not even know what? I'm sorry.
01:07:35
28 14 28.
01:07:36
14 because Atlanta sucks.
01:07:38
And Matt Ryan, He, uh I don't see it with them anymore.
01:07:44
I just don't see it with them anymore.
01:07:45
Um, yeah, And Rodgers and the Packers take it.
01:07:50
What do you got? Big? Um, I'm gonna I'm gonna say Atlanta gets their their first win today.
01:07:58
I mean, I'm gonna 33 28.
01:08:03
And the reason is because, yeah, their own three And you know, and I've said that I don't trust their defense before, but if you actually look at at these games that they played that they kind of let go.
01:08:15
I mean, they were up big on the Cowboys, and they only lost last week by four points.
01:08:20
And when they played the Seahawks, you know, they lost 38 25.
01:08:25
So there's two possession game, they're but everybody's losing to the Seahawks right now, but they they're at least keeping it close on being competitive enough where I think you know, three losses in a row.
01:08:36
They're gonna come out and and beat the Packers.
01:08:39
I got Atlanta 33 28.
01:08:41
Wow.
01:08:42
Wow.
01:08:44
Really? Okay.
01:08:45
You know what? I know you've been on Atlanta for for a little while.
01:08:49
I don't I don't get this with you in Atlanta.
01:08:51
Picked Atlanta.
01:08:52
The win at all this year isn't the first time I've picked Atlanta.
01:08:55
The win, you know, they're whack.
01:08:57
I don't like what we They lost to the Cowboys.
01:09:00
The Cowboys came into home, they was up and the Cowboys came up.
01:09:05
And still with their ass is And the game the score was 42 39 was one point game.
01:09:12
I'm talking about the walking, the first.
01:09:13
When they came, they came back.
01:09:14
They came back. Yeah.
01:09:16
I mean, they came back.
01:09:17
Yeah, to me.
01:09:18
They they had the Cowboys destroyed.
01:09:22
It's a 60 minute game, you know, It's a 60 minute game, and that's that's what you always have to remember.
01:09:27
Like the Falcons can score.
01:09:30
Okay, they clearly can score.
01:09:32
They scored 25 39 26 points in their first three games.
01:09:36
They can score.
01:09:37
The problem is to me, that defense, if they could get some, if they could get some more stops clearly, you know, I haven't watched all of their games or not, but, I mean, you're giving up 38 40 and 30.
01:09:51
Clearly, the problem here is the defense.
01:09:53
E mean, so I a za giant Look, as a Giants fan, I'd probably be talking playoffs right now if we scored 25 39 26 points in the game.
01:10:05
I think our defense is good enough.
01:10:07
Thio support the team that scores that much believe e.
01:10:10
I just I just think, you know, Atlanta just turns it around.
01:10:13
They might not win another game, but way No, you'll be talking way getting all type of shots.
01:10:18
Everything way.
01:10:20
No, you would be saying something right now.
01:10:21
Uh, Mike, my uh yeah, I can't I can't step on them.
01:10:27
I can't step out and living like you on this one.
01:10:30
I think Atlanta could score points with anybody, though, so I do think it will be some points put on the board, but I think Green Bay wins 27 24 on.
01:10:40
That's the pick him again.
01:10:43
I'm gonna show the weekly.
01:10:44
I'm gonna show the weekly overall right now.
01:10:47
Like I said corns in the lead.
01:10:49
But I'm on his ass.
01:10:51
And hopefully this will be the week that I take over.
01:10:54
Take over the lead.
01:10:57
I'm gonna take the lead with the with the Atlanta Green Bay game.
01:11:00
Yeah, those those type of games, man, that put people in the lead That changes the changes.
01:11:06
The overall, um, the numbers there.
01:11:10

Like I said, I'm feeling good.
00:01:54
Two wins away from the NBA championship, so I I couldn't be happier.
00:01:58
I hold that thought he hold that thought because, of course, we're gonna start there.
00:02:03
We kick off the show with the NBA playoffs.
00:02:06
Last time that we were here, the finals hasn't quite kicked off yet.
00:02:11
I believe it was gained five of the Western Conference finals.
00:02:14
The heat were already in.
00:02:16
Um, Brandon, I remind you that you picked the nuggets to win that game.
00:02:22
Um, the cold you picked last week, we could go on the record.
00:02:27
Oh, yeah, I was I was I was hopeful.
00:02:31
I Look, I just wanna come on.
00:02:33
Everybody knows the Lakers gonna win.
00:02:35
I mean, ****, I just want to see some good basketball, that's all.
00:02:39
Well, it seems like last time we talked to seemed like that was many moons ago, but right now, the Lakers are up 20 in the NBA finals.
00:02:48
Listen minute.
00:02:49
It's not looking good for Miami.
00:02:52
Are we bringing out the brooms or am I jumping the gun with that? We'll start with you, Kwan.
00:02:56
What you think e you better bring them brooms out.
00:03:01
Bring them out.
00:03:02
Bring them out.
00:03:03
Bring them out.
00:03:04
So you think? Well, when the When the sweeping it? No, I'm not going to start with.
00:03:09
Yeah, it's gonna be off in them.
00:03:11
E said last week.
00:03:14
It's It's LeBron a d.
00:03:16
Um, it's the Lakers, you know, is, uh, they're destined to win this.
00:03:23
And look, Miami, they they're fighting hard, you know, kind of coming out the east.
00:03:29
They've had a great run.
00:03:31
And to get to a championship is I mean, it's not hard and, you know, uh, mentally, they may feel that they're not They're still not out of it.
00:03:38
But, I mean, the proof is in the pudding.
00:03:41
That's LeBron.
00:03:42
And they did So bring bring the brooms out.
00:03:47
Yeah, man, it's looking that way, man.
00:03:49
Be what you thinking? I mean, they were already the underdog coming in.
00:03:55
Um, you know, Goran Dragic goes out that Z he's not their best player, but he's a key player.
00:04:03
So you're going up against the pretty much fully loaded Lakers squad who are already favored to win.
00:04:09
It's not looking good.
00:04:11
It's not looking good sweep is possible.
00:04:13
I mean, from Miami To win one, they have to come out like, unbelievably hot, like the Lakers did in game one and then some.
00:04:19
So and I Yeah.
00:04:23
Sweet, sweet.
00:04:25
Wow.
00:04:27
So I don't know how far you want to go with that, Alex.
00:04:29
I know, you know.
00:04:30
Yeah, I know you don't want to jump the gun being the Lakers fan, but being our resident Laker insider in our MBA Insider, what do you think, man? You think this Siri's is over? Miami is a good team.
00:04:43
They're there in the finals for a reason.
00:04:44
So they're down a couple players, Bam and Rogic.
00:04:47
I mean, you know, I'm not gonna get ahead of myself and say that the Lakers are gonna sweep.
00:04:53
I do believe the last time any team but swept in the finals, the Lakers swept the Nets, I think.
00:04:59
And 02 I believe Shaq and Kobe swept him the year before 41 You know, the 70 Sixers and then before that, four to the Pacers.
00:05:09
But look, man, I'm taking it.
00:05:13
Everybody asked me, Like what? Your prediction.
00:05:15
How many games? One game at a time.
00:05:17
Like sometimes teams can get kind of lethargic when they're not playing against star players and our team is down a couple players.
00:05:23
I want the Lakers to take every game seriously.
00:05:25
We win Game three, then I'll get really excited.
00:05:28
Then I'll get really excited.
00:05:30
I bought myself a special bottle or something to celebrate, just in case.
00:05:33
We way pull this thing off yesterday.
00:05:37
So let's let's just get to get past Game three, man.
00:05:41
Like speaking of that man like the Lakers, LeBron a d They seem to be locked in, but especially LeBron like I mean, a d is playing out of this world like I know at the end of the last game I saw the stat line and I'm like, you did that say he was 15 of 20? Yeah, like I'm like, Dude.
00:06:03
So him and LeBron registered 30 plus point games that game, but LeBron, it seems to be like blocked in like no smiling, no nothing.
00:06:14
And it puts me in mind of LeBron that LeBron uh when he was with Miami when they came out, I think Boston Boston was it was a close out game for Boston.
00:06:27
I think it was a Game six in Boston and LeBron came out with the mean mug.
00:06:31
It didn't say a word, I think like 40 to 10 and eight.
00:06:36
But, you know, he was like killing and I've never seen.
00:06:38
I mean, I've seen him play good.
00:06:40
I've seen him ball out, but in that game, like he was locked out, was locked in.
00:06:46
It was like he wasn't gonna miss.
00:06:47
So did you? But But I say that because it seems like some folks are coming at Bronx.
00:06:56
They need a little bit too uptight.
00:06:58
I know he got on his on his teammates about celebrating on the bench.
00:07:02
You think that's hogwash, Or you think LeBron is being being a little bit too too tight on his teammates? Look, LeBron is LeBron for reason, all right? He hey knows he knows how to win.
00:07:17
I mean, he's been he didn't win every final he's been in, but he's been thio over 10 finals like Look it Z, it's Everybody has something to say about LeBron LeBron.
00:07:28
It don't matter what LeBron do.
00:07:29
Somebody gonna have something to say.
00:07:31
You know, I'm Listen, I'm a quiet and I'm an MBA fan, but I'm kind of glad in a way that the Clippers lost, although I didn't want to see the Clippers vs Lakers because I just thought it's ridiculous.
00:07:47
Acquires better than LeBron like that **** stops now like everybody has something to say about what LeBron does.
00:07:54
But he keeps winning.
00:07:56
He's still the best player in the league.
00:07:57
He's winning off and on the court.
00:07:59
I mean, on and off the court.
00:08:00
So yes, Z ****.
00:08:04
Well, I honestly feel so when where he came from two. Now.
00:08:11
And when you come from that winning circle on, you know how to win.
00:08:15
I mean, for playoffs finals, it takes a step.
00:08:19
I mean, every step you go it mentally it takes something to where you know you have to focus and you have to die land because everybody is great at that particular level.
00:08:27
So I agree when when it comes to people saying, you know, whatever they want to say about LeBron or saying that he's second, that's to co I or you know they feel though, Durant.
00:08:38
Yeah, opinionated.
00:08:40
But at the end of the day, I mean, who has been to the finals more than he has who knows how to win? Oh, bending that particularly predicament then LeBron James.
00:08:51
So I mean, I think he knows a little something about, you know, winning championships or what needs to be done.
00:08:57
You know, when it particularly when it comes to the process of winning N B A finals.
00:09:03
So people just need to back up, let him do his thing.
00:09:07
And, you know, it feel a lot better when when they have to ring on their fingers and you know, they're popping the champagne bottles and they're holding up toe hold up the championship trophy.
00:09:17
Look, man, the Kuwaiti talk was always nonsense, and I'm going to save a lot of my bullets for all that stuff.
00:09:23
Once the season is over, quality is overrated.
00:09:26
Bad boy top five player hits that.
00:09:29
That somehow winning that championship last season compared to Jordan.
00:09:35
And he's better than LeBron.
00:09:36
That was that was that was Bs from Jump Street.
00:09:40
He should have been compared to Mike.
00:09:41
He should have been said better than Jordan better than than LeBron.
00:09:44
That was all that that was more anti LeBron than it really was quite being that great.
00:09:50
But I'm gonna get that Let me get back.
00:09:52
That's a great conversation.
00:09:54
Waken.
00:10:01
Dig into it.
00:10:02
I'm just saying he wanted championship And then people said he was as good as people said he was better than LeBron and Doc was comparing him to Michael Jordan.
00:10:09
That was ridiculous.
00:10:11
That was absurd.
00:10:12
But you know, Look, man, you never know how many times you gonna, if ever make it to an MBA Finals.
00:10:18
LeBron is fortunate up there into 10 so he knows what it takes, obviously to get there.
00:10:22
And as his finals record shows right now is three but three and six in the finals, Everybody don't go six.
00:10:28
No, like Mike, right? Like it doesn't always happen.
00:10:30
So if he's hard on his teammates like Kobe said, We played Orlando.
00:10:37
Job's not finished.
00:10:38
Like you got to get through this thing s o.
00:10:41
He said, We're going to celebrate the Western Conference champion, the Western Conference finals win and now get to work.
00:10:46
And just because Miami's down a couple players doesn't mean you get to celebrate like you know, they're good team.
00:10:51
They beat the bucks, you know, I'm saying, like people thought the books were gonna be in the finals this year, so I did say I did, too.
00:10:59
I was one of those people.
00:11:01
Um, I mean, pre co vid Milwaukee.
00:11:03
Look, they look, But that's a regular season basketball for you.
00:11:09
Yeah, I mean, I think, Listen, I think LeBron is one of those players that he's ****ed if you do, ****ed if he don't.
00:11:15
I think we've seen LeBron and, you know and every like, right.
00:11:21
I think we've seen LeBron dancing on the sideline, and I think we've seen LeBron now where he locked in any serious.
00:11:28
So either way, if he would have been, if he would have been chairing with his teammates or clowning on the bench, or they would have crushed them now that he's not smiling and all of that now he's, you know, angry man or whatever the hell, maybe there's nothing.
00:11:43
There's nothing he can do that that won't be under the microscope.
00:11:47
So, um, I just think he locked in, and that's another thing that's been great about these situations, like all the Kobe clips and like you just said Alex.
00:11:56
When Kobe was in the press conference after the game and the guys, the reporter said you should be smiling you up to zero.
00:12:08
He was like, For what? Yeah, what am I What am I smiling for? This it's not over.
00:12:14
So my thing about that is like, Would you not have that particular stress on your on your brain? Like just everything that comes with the whole territory of when he found with the Lakers the legacy, you know, that he's holding pretty much the burden on his shoulders.
00:12:28
Everything that happened with, you know, with Kobe.
00:12:31
And now get into the finals like you.
00:12:34
Would you be smiling? Okay.
00:12:36
He came to the Lakers.
00:12:37
He came to the Lakers when every other all star turned their back on us.
00:12:41
Every other one and he came by himself.
00:12:44
Yeah, e every every all star still turning their back on New York.
00:12:50
But look, it's a it's a mindset, you know? It's a mindset, and people like some people, just won't get it.
00:12:59
Like people who look and just see the game on the TV like they think of it like if they were in that position, they would think it's over.
00:13:07
And that's why you have you have you have folks like LeBron and then you have everybody else.
00:13:14
I'm saying It's like LeBron knows this is this is business.
00:13:19
Miami is a good team.
00:13:22
This is the N B A and the lake Look, LeBron is great.
00:13:28
He makes it look.
00:13:30
He makes it look easy.
00:13:32
And that's why people are like, Yo, what do you stressing for? But LeBron is like this, things that he's doing out there that the typical casual fans can't, you know, really see.
00:13:41
They don't notice just from his, you know, where he positions himself on the court.
00:13:45
Everything he does on the court is intentional.
00:13:48
From where he's standing Thio, who he's passing to, he's setting up a past 3456 even not he passes before plays before.
00:13:58
He's probably already played the game throughout in his head, so he makes it look easy.
00:14:02
But that's that's work.
00:14:04
He's got to stay focused in order in order to do that and close out the deal.
00:14:08
But people don't get that.
00:14:09
That's why you got you got people with mindsets like LeBron and like I said, you got everybody else they would let they would they type people that would let another team come back 31 Not yeah, I can believe just like you said Brandon.
00:14:23
Everybody's good, right? Everybody, everybody n b A.
00:14:28
Everybody has premier talent at that at that level.
00:14:31
So even though this LeBron James and even though you know now they're like, there's no guarantee that they're going to get back to the championship.
00:14:38
So, uh, that up and that mindset, I would think like like the Kevin Hart doc like, Don't believe this up, you know, because there, you know, you don't know.
00:14:49
You don't know when it comes to the next season or the season after that.
00:14:54
You know what I'm saying? So you better get it now.
00:14:57
And this is This is the first time in LeBron's career in the finals he's been up to.
00:15:01
Oh, and that's why when I heard that I was like he's never been up to before in the finals.
00:15:05
E He knows what that steak Mhm.
00:15:09
I was gonna say that I think LeBron I think you're looking at a person who knows, like you said knows what's at stake.
00:15:17
He knows how hard it is to get there, and he knows how hard it is to win those four games.
00:15:21
You know what I mean? Like he knows is difficult at this.
00:15:25
Stay on this stage in the finals.
00:15:27
He knows you also.
00:15:29
It is.
00:15:30
And I think if I'm not mistaking and Alice, you can correct me if I'm wrong.
00:15:33
I believe him.
00:15:34
Rondo and J.
00:15:35
R.
00:15:36
Smith and only ones on the team with championships championship experience.
00:15:40
Dwight, been there, Dwight.
00:15:43
The reason why we didn't get a Kobe LeBron Finals, Remember? Because White Orlando knocked off LeBron.
00:15:47
But yeah, like Yo Dwight's a great example.
00:15:52
He never knew.
00:15:53
He didn't know if he'd ever get back to the finals.
00:15:55
Like Like you never know we're going to get one, get one chance, But then to get back, like, how much? How much effort do you think it takes LeBron to keep his body healthy in years? 17 to B E.
00:16:06
People think he just stepping on the court and just busting.
00:16:09
Everybody asked.
00:16:10
It takes year round diet like he's got doctors, I guess, family. Clearly.
00:16:15
I mean, look, they've got a lot of money, but like he probably is up all night doing different things.
00:16:19
It's a sacrifice man.
00:16:21
It also speaks to the respect that he has for Spoelstra and Heat.
00:16:26
He knows Spoelstra is is Hey, he's a great coach, man.
00:16:30
E think I think supposed has proven that now he's coach without LeBron and Wade, Dwyane Wade for for quite some time in the heat have been.
00:16:39
They've been a staple in the East Coast man, and now they're They're in the finals, you know, without LeBron or Wade.
00:16:46
You know, so supposed to coach.
00:16:49
And LeBron knows that.
00:16:51
But that's the greatest of LeBron LeBron knows.
00:16:54
You see that Clipper Iman Shumpert when he's talking about LeBron LeBron knows who's on your coaching staff and how the mugs coach, like, how many people do that I like like you know what? He's bringing.
00:17:07
Look, man, Jimmy, I like Jimmy.
00:17:09
You know, I'm saying, Look, you could play Jimmy ball, you play.
00:17:13
Just remind me the movie.
00:17:15
Me and my lady is watching the movie.
00:17:16
It was a sport would Dreamgirls.
00:17:19
Jimmy got soul.
00:17:20
Jimmy got so Jimmy, you know what I mean? He's all right, so But you know what the most the most beautiful part about this is LeBron and anti Davison.
00:17:32
Lockstep, lockstep, Andi, even Dwyane Wade said Dwyane Wade tweeted the other day.
00:17:38
Anthony Davis is Talent is the best compliment to LeBron James.
00:17:41
Talent like they the way they meshed together even more so than D.
00:17:44
Wade because there was something some overlap with them and Dwyane Wade.
00:17:47
And obviously they won two rings, right? But like the way their talent fits.
00:17:52
Yeah, yeah.
00:17:53
LeBron's looking at Anthony Davis like, Yeah, he this boy might extend my career a couple of years.
00:17:57
Yeah, and I noticed.
00:18:00
I'm glad you brought that up because I noticed the media also, that's something they also trying to play.
00:18:06
They're trying to play all LeBron might be jealous of a D.
00:18:09
And I'm like, what? Not even like Come on, you know, like like LeBron is one of those players that Yeah, he's great.
00:18:20
You know what I think I said this before.
00:18:22
I think I said this one off the record.
00:18:25
LeBron is one of those players that I kinda in that mindset that I put next to Obama like when Obama was in office and all the **** that was thrown at him and able to keep his cool that entire time.
00:18:38
Like I feel like that's amazing that LeBron has not had a slip up in all these years and, you know, saying, saying, with Obama in eight years, never lost his cool to the point where at least we saw it anyway.
00:18:53
So I just feel like, you know, they find they try to find anything to hate against this dude, man.
00:19:00
And it's like to the point where it's so petty that you know, they're going down to the point of, you know, Now I see people posting.
00:19:09
Oh, this is one of the most born Finals, you know, Should like they did.
00:19:15
They did this **** to Jordan, man.
00:19:16
They do it to anybody who was great when Jordan was great.
00:19:21
Oh, he's a ball hog.
00:19:22
Oh, here's the Ron Harper.
00:19:24
He's the Jordan stopper.
00:19:25
Or, you know, if you're a great player, people going to say **** about probably, I don't know, they might have said **** about magic.
00:19:33
I don't imagine might be like the only one.
00:19:35
Remember the car Magic? A coach killer when he got West was at West, Paul fired, I think.
00:19:40
Before Riley took over, they said Magic was a coach.
00:19:42
Tragic Johnson, coach killer s so a lot of good.
00:19:46
All the greats, all the greats go through it, especially if you are the best player in the league.
00:19:52
There's always somebody in the league who's better than you because you don't do whatever.
00:19:55
He shoots 69% from the free throw line.
00:19:57
Yeah, but he averages 38 points in 25 rebounds.
00:20:01
Kids, that's That's the part where I felt like like the anointment of CO.
00:20:08
I was kind of like backlash to LeBron's greatness.
00:20:11
Like, Look, man, I don't wanna be Oh yeah, no up.
00:20:16
Look, tell me Legitimately, tell me what year was quiet.
00:20:21
The best player in the NBA when KD was healthy, he was never better than KD.
00:20:26
He was never better than LeBron and I'm, hey, never been better than Steph Curry.
00:20:30
Steph Curry's impact on the game of basketball is greater than quads.
00:20:33
So at what point? Why was quiet anointed other than he was quiet and people were sick and tired of LeBron.
00:20:41
I agree with you that that LeBron is a better basketball player, but I co I I mean, I'm not going to say he's good as your I really don't like doing comparisons.
00:20:51
I don't either.
00:20:52
But Dr for instance, for instance, you your that's that's a good point.
00:20:57
But for me, like when you when you talk about Steph and you talk about how I like to me, I can't definitively say one player is more impactful than the other.
00:21:08
I mean, they've both transformed franchises.
00:21:11
I mean, anywhere kuai goes, I mean, he co he is like the diet LeBron Anywhere he goes.
00:21:16
That team is likely at least contending for a championship where he did go to ready made franchises, though, right, like San Antonio with San Antonio and Toronto was already a playoff tested team.
00:21:28
And he, like we were talking about those that's a legit, you know, like he did kind of go to ready made situations.
00:21:35
Hey, yes, but my argument to that is what championship team, you know, had bums on it like a bunch of bums like it's like completely, completely agree.
00:21:48
It's just that when the quad jump, like all these other guys e you know whoever's on the screen at the time.
00:21:55
I mean his best argument is the Toronto championship because you know, if that's so, people are talking about the Lakers beating up Miami team that's injured.
00:22:06
That Golden State team was decimated with injuries, right? Like if they were healthy.
00:22:11
The one game Katie played 12 minutes, he had 12 points in 12 minutes, and then they were busting Toronto's ass.
00:22:16
Eso I mean part of me, part of me feels like and this is no shade towards CO.
00:22:24
I think quiet is a good player.
00:22:26
But part of me feels like if that was LeBron went in against that Golden State team, they would put an asterisk next to it like they're trying to put one next to this one.
00:22:36
So I just feel like that's what puts LeBron above and beyond a lot of these other players because they even though they are considered to be better than him and I'm talking about the K.
00:22:48
D s.
00:22:49
I'm talking about the quad.
00:22:50
Some people will put them above LeBron.
00:22:52
They still don't carry that extra weight that he does.
00:22:56
And for me, that says a lot.
00:23:00
You know what I mean? Like I spoke on the last show.
00:23:03
How within be how the cuteness is starting to wear off for some of these players, right? There was an excuse built in excuses for a lot of these players.
00:23:12
Like and be like Harden like a lot of these dudes, like it's time for them to win some playoff games.
00:23:19
Building.
00:23:20
Be honest, you honest to you.
00:23:22
Honest to like, if there's no LeBron no quiet in the East What happened, bro? E mean, that's a legit like Yeah, yeah, I mean, so how you m v p and Defensive player of the year and you lost in the second round? Yeah, it's a regular.
00:23:43
I agree with you.
00:23:44
I give everything I give everyone award.
00:23:48
LeBron really ahead for years.
00:23:49
E mean ****.
00:23:50
What is he not the best player on the court? I don't know, but way got haters out there.
00:23:58
Eso I mean, like I said, I feel like he catches.
00:24:01
He does with a little more.
00:24:02
There's no excuses for LeBron.
00:24:04
Nobody's gonna give him any excuse.
00:24:05
I think they find reason to take away from what he's done right, But and then this is a perfect Segway for the next thing I wanted to bring up to talk about what you guys So our boy co y I mean our boy Kyrie Makesem, make some noise this week.
00:24:25
Um and you know, he He said some things that people are taking as a shot or possible shot at LeBron E.
00:24:34
I don't know if you could see it on the screen, but this is what Kyrie said.
00:24:39
And I quote, this is the first time in my career I could look down and be like that mother****er can make that shot to.
00:24:48
So a lot of people said, You know, I mean, and that was that was based off a question, Um took hiree on being the best option in the late game.
00:24:59
So I'm gonna ask you guys, this man, because Kyrie has come out since then and you know he's made videos.
00:25:07
He's kind of recanting things.
00:25:11
Is that a legit? Is it legit for someone like LeBron to take that as a shot at him? Listen, this reminds me of the time one of our friends said Ron Artest was the best to garden MBA and then went later came back.
00:25:23
He blamed it on being hungry.
00:25:24
That's what this reminds me of, like Listen, man, Uh oh.
00:25:30
Shot.
00:25:31
Look, people are posting stats online about late games and how LeBron it scores more late game to Kyrie.
00:25:37
Like all Okay.
00:25:39
Kyrie knew what he was doing.
00:25:40
He knew what he was doing.
00:25:41
Then people got on him.
00:25:43
And then he released a statement on I g saying, why must it be brother against brother? When he made that statement, he knew what he was doing.
00:25:52
But come on, E.
00:25:55
Yeah.
00:25:56
He knew what he was saying.
00:25:57
You know, he knew that it was a subliminal, subliminal shot, you know, and from LeBron perspective, man.
00:26:05
Just just go.
00:26:06
Keep winning, man.
00:26:07
I wouldn't even worry about that.
00:26:08
That stuff that you know that Kyra is putting out, obviously he feels a certain way about it, you know? Obviously he's the one.
00:26:16
Yeah.
00:26:17
I mean, he's doing that feel salty about the whole ordeal, about the whole situation.
00:26:20
Because you won't saying that when when LeBron come back to Cleveland initially, you know, I'm saying, like, you may have had a loose, you know, may have felt that way about it, but he wasn't saying that at the end of the day, the brother, the brother help me get a ring.
00:26:35
So I mean, what what What is the What is the What is the What is the shout for? Like Why? Why? Why? Why? Well, the little bit of the little bit of legitimate, the bit of legitimacy that his statement does have is that you know, But this is also I mean, more bronze slurping here.
00:26:54
But this is part of Bron.
00:26:56
LeBron being great like he understands his strength and his weakness is like he knew deep in the game, like the percentages.
00:27:03
Kyrie is going to get a shot or car.
00:27:05
He's gonna have a favorable matchup over here, LeBron to give him the ball.
00:27:08
Say, Kyrie, do you think Take this shot.
00:27:10
I have no problems about it, but I mean, that's not that doesn't mean that LeBron can't take that shot.
00:27:16
It just LeBron just realized Hey, this guy's got a He's got a favorable matchup and he's known for scoring late in games that we have a great chance of winning.
00:27:28
So give him the freaking ball.
00:27:30
But that's not like like I said.
00:27:32
That's not to say LeBron can't make that shot.
00:27:34
And I mean, furthermore, we're talking about like Kyrie.
00:27:37
Okay, It's the same brother who think the Earth is flat, so sometimes he just says things I'm pretty sure you know later on in life he's probably going to take it back.
00:27:46
So I I don't think I don't think it's like a part of it might have been a shot, But sometimes I think just Kyrie.
00:27:52
Sometimes he just be talking, you know, and that this is one of those times I wish I had to clap.
00:27:59
I wish I had to clip loaded up.
00:28:02
But did you all see his I g live video? E.
00:28:05
I heard it. I didn't watch it.
00:28:07
Yeah, I did watch it.
00:28:08
I watched it when he had, like, the instance burning.
00:28:10
And you see that? It's annoying.
00:28:14
So you know what? Like Carrie is now striking me as a person that just started smoking weed.
00:28:21
Now he's like, and now he's like, You know, he's got to be Mr Philosophical Thinking type guy.
00:28:31
He just reminds me of that now because like some of the **** he was saying in that I'm just like, you know, he's like your state woke people and, you know, it's like all right, well, like, you know, I feel like he called him unfair backlash about the stuff that they say he started leading into the bubble with, you know, making sure the players were making the right decision and all of that stuff, right? So But I feel like this thing e feel like Ivory is still like trying to find himself right.
00:29:04
And it's weird because he I I feel like he has never gotten over.
00:29:13
Even.
00:29:14
This is where I feel like this shot comes from, even though he hit of a huge shot in the N B A Finals when they won the championship, right? I feel like then, later on, he wanted to be traded all of that stuff.
00:29:28
I feel like he has never gotten over the fact that he is more and and this is gonna sound like a shot.
00:29:36
But Scottie Pippen? I want anybody to know Scottie Pippen is my favorite player of all time, but I think Kyrie is having a hard time accepting that he's more Scottie Pippen.
00:29:46
Then he is Michael Jordan, right? Like he he hasn't shown that he can be the man on the team like in Boston.
00:29:54
That **** didn't work and then if Katie comes back 80% healthy, he's not gonna be the man on that team.
00:30:02
So I think he struggles with that.
00:30:05
And I think he's still trying to find himself and find and be able to put himself in that mindset that like you.
00:30:11
All right? Yeah, I could be great Hall of Fame where I could be a top 50 player or whatever and I could be the second best player on this team.
00:30:19
So I don't know.
00:30:21
I just feel like I do agree with you.
00:30:23
Jo Brand And I do think he he, um I do think that he he just speaks and I think he thinks it sounds good.
00:30:32
And then once it comes back out waxing what everybody else is it.
00:30:36
He realized that it sounds dumb as hell.
00:30:39
I hope it's not mental illness, because if it is, I take back everything I said.
00:30:44
I'm sorry Kyrie, but really he was saying some wild ****, bro.
00:30:50
They just hired Steve Nash and Kyrie comes out and says, I don't really see us having a head coach of a collaborative effort where sometimes I'm the coach, k D c.
00:30:58
Coach, assistant coach.
00:30:59
Come on, dog.
00:31:01
They did hire somebody with no coaching experience.
00:31:04
True e it probably is a collaborative effort in the huddle.
00:31:09
I I just wouldn't come out and say that they like they like the old Washington football team.
00:31:15
Everything that goes on the locker room is out in the air and the public now, well, that was There's a There's a there's a shot E That was the shot E way e.
00:31:37
I don't know if you wanna return fire before I move on e the food, but not when it comes to the next.
00:31:42
Oh, next to the next.
00:31:48
Well, speaking of speaking of, you know, football, typically, this is when I m b a insider leaves us.
00:31:57
But I want to invite him to stay in on this next segment of the show as you for no or us for as you three.
00:32:05
Now we did a show one covert and youth sports, but it seems like we should have done a show on Cove.
00:32:14
It in Professional Sports way knew it was coming because the NFL right now is being marred with this cove it situation.
00:32:26
As of right now, the Titans Steeler game has been postponed.
00:32:31
Do the 16 members of the Titans organization tested positive for covert, and that number, well, appears to still be growing.
00:32:40
We then later got the news that Cam Newton tested positive, which postponed that game at least a day late last night.
00:32:49
A saint's player tested positive for the moment, which then was putting the Saints and Lions game in jeopardy.
00:32:57
But it appears that that game is still gonna happen today because that was supposedly a false positive.
00:33:04
Yeah, by questioning, young man.
00:33:08
Oh, that's an NFL finished the season because, I mean, we've seen this with the Titans organization itself, 16 members and growing.
00:33:19
So we see how fast they could go because House fastest could spread because I believe it started with three positive test earlier in the week.
00:33:29
Now, we're up to 16 within a couple of days.
00:33:32
And then, like I said, that number can continue to grow.
00:33:37
Yo, do they finish, man? Will they shut this season down early due to Covic running through the NFL, I feel they're going to try to squeeze as much money as possible that they can.
00:33:50
But ultimately, man, they're gonna have to shut this down.
00:33:52
This is just what you just said.
00:33:55
You know? It went from 3 to 16 like that, they're gonna have to shut it down.
00:34:00
There's no way that you can have that particular contact contact that sport.
00:34:06
Everything that was running around with Cove it and not spread, you know, they're gonna have to mhm.
00:34:15
I think it's going to depend on you know, how these players end up medically.
00:34:23
If you know, these players have tested positive if they remain asymptomatic and, um, you know, they're able to test positive again and get back on the field within, ah, couple weeks or whatever and they see the majority of players.
00:34:43
That's the result for the majority of of players who test positive or who are in close proximity to somebody who test positive.
00:34:49
I think this season has a good chance of going on.
00:34:52
However, if one of these players comes back or, you know, multiple players come back and they start exhibiting symptoms that are more serious, that quite possibly could hospitalize them.
00:35:06
Then I think at that point, um, from a PR standpoint, you've you've gotta you gotta shut this season down, but I I agree with quant it It depends on how these players come out otherwise, yeah, they're gonna milk this season is Aziz long as they can.
00:35:23
I mean, look, man, I agree with that.
00:35:25
I think the NFL is gonna milk it forever.
00:35:28
I mean, and the NFL is probably the most defiant sports league of all of them, right? Like Goodell was, they're gonna push this thing as long as they can.
00:35:37
And I was just reading, like in college football.
00:35:40
Half of the power five conferences won't even release their covert data As how many players have called it.
00:35:46
I think we might get to a point where the NFL stops releasing the data.
00:35:49
E mean, so look, we just talked about the MBA, man, that Adam Silver, an MBA, figured out how to make it work.
00:35:58
And he was on the podcast this week and he said every day he thought he was gonna get a phone call, that there was an outbreak and thank God.
00:36:04
So far, there have been no issues with MBA.
00:36:06
And what what these sports leagues have to admit is some sports leagues arm or conducive to controlling the coronavirus than others.
00:36:15
The N B.
00:36:16
A basketball court is a 94 ft court, right? There's less players.
00:36:19
There's less personnel.
00:36:21
Football is 100 yard field.
00:36:23
There's all these players in person, like football probably shouldn't be played during the coronavirus.
00:36:29
That's that's probably the truth.
00:36:31
Because are you guys tell me your players like are they allowed to go home? Or they put them in hotels like they can just go on much as they want The coaches, the staff, I mean, pretty much pretty much going go wherever they want, pretty much whenever they please.
00:36:47
You know, it's not MBA where they have a particular bubble to where, like, you know, they have to come in and stay Or, you know, they have certain requirements like, No, they go in, they go out, you know, it zur they don't they don't be Oh, go out.
00:37:01
They don't come in and come freely, but yeah, but yeah, you're right.
00:37:05
Yeah, I mean, I think beginning of the particular season they were, it was when I saw the hard knocks.
00:37:11
Um, initially, they were testing, you know, players that were coming in, coaches, whatever.
00:37:17
But I mean, it's nowhere near how how you know the MBA has it, but I mean, so when When the When the players leave like the game or the arena.
00:37:27
You're trusting that they're going home when they leave that they're taking precautions.
00:37:31
Also, right players and personnel, The NFL trusting that they're taking precautions on with so many players and personnel.
00:37:38
You're talking what hundreds of people per staff every week.
00:37:41
You know, everybody is not taking precautions.
00:37:44
Eso Well, what? To get to get back into the facilities people have to test to get back into the facility.
00:37:50
So it's not just you walking in and out the door freely, like, you know, you got a car.
00:37:55
So they are.
00:37:56
They are testing, But But if you think it's dormant for two weeks, right, like the NBA was like When you come in here, you're isolated for two weeks.
00:38:06
We're going to test you every day and then you could get released into you know, the rest of the put the rest of the players.
00:38:11
Yeah, it's really not to that magnitude.
00:38:14
Hey, don't say it like it's clearly not to that.
00:38:17
So that's why, to me, the numbers for the first couple of weeks man was like they were unbelievable, like no positive tests.
00:38:28
I think they have the numbers.
00:38:30
I think they were man like, I think the first the first positive test that came out during the season was last week.
00:38:37
What? I think it was a J.
00:38:38
Tyrell of the Atlanta Falcons.
00:38:41
Hey, didn't play last week, but it didn't get this much.
00:38:44
It didn't get this much pub.
00:38:46
It was like Yo, he was added to the covert list or whatever, but they didn't go on to, You know, I know that game wasn't postponed or anything like that.
00:38:55
So that's that's what's a little ironic to me right now is like Now they're doing all of this.
00:39:03
Oh, hold up, Let's postpone games or whatever.
00:39:05
But like when it happened last week with a J.
00:39:09
Carroll, there was none of that talk with the Falcons game being pushed back and all of that.
00:39:13
But like for the N B, I mean for the NFL that have what they were claiming to be, no positive tests until now.
00:39:21
That was amazing to me because of how they're doing it.
00:39:24
Even with even with MLB, like we saw how it was in the beginning with MLB, you know, that was positive, test popping up now all of a sudden nothing.
00:39:33
I do think it's some some ****ing or some numbers going on, but I just think I just think that now that you can't it's hard to hide 16 people.
00:39:43
You know what I mean? A one organization that that's popped up would be No, no, I was just gonna say if if if somebody's fund is definitely the NFL, if it's fudging the numbers because they're using the same company.
00:39:56
The MBA is using the bio reference laboratories to do the testing.
00:40:01
So, um, by the bio bio reference laboratories eyes the name of the company, um, in the n b A.
00:40:09
Is using that same company for their for their testing.
00:40:13
I thought you said Darko Industries about the oh, sorry about that.
00:40:26
On, then, a zoo.
00:40:30
You mentioned how you know when when you go into that MBA bubble, you're isolated before you are released into, you know, the bubble population in the NFL.
00:40:42
According to their protocol here, you're not isolated until you test positive or somebody has tested positive and you were deemed to be in close proximity of that person.
00:40:51
Then you are isolated with the N B.
00:40:54
A they tested in their isolating you first, and then they'll release you into the, uh, into the population.
00:41:00
But it's like like you mentioned Alex.
00:41:03
It's just so much personnel, so much more personnel for a football team.
00:41:07
I mean, players, coaching staff and all the support staff around it.
00:41:12
So I hope they figure it out.
00:41:15
But because I'm clearly a football fan, But I don't know, man.
00:41:21
Yeah, I mean, well, I I will mention this last thing before we move on.
00:41:25
Um, I noticed that Cadel has recently said that he keep all teams in hotels, but it would be he doesn't know if the n f L P A would agree to that.
00:41:38
So I guess that's something that they considering toe lock teams down in hotels.
00:41:44
But I still don't.
00:41:45
But the aspect that that doesn't make sense what that is, you still travel.
00:41:51
You know what I'm saying? There's still a travel aspect, so I guess maybe he's saying if they're at home while they're at home, he locked them away in hotels away from their families, but they still have to travel to these other these other cities.
00:42:05
Um, so I just don't I just don't know how how that will work, man.
00:42:10
Look, man, the W N B A in the NBA and Major League soccer figured it out right in NHL.
00:42:17
NHL did it? Yeah, like if if if the players, if football is just too big of a personnel sport to do this canceled the daggone season.
00:42:29
What are we talking about here? Money E. I mean, yeah.
00:42:34
I mean, the the billionaires will be fine right there. They're not.
00:42:38
They're not hurting for money.
00:42:39
Maybe the maybe the staff and and some of the players.
00:42:42
But like, but either that, you know that are isolate isolate everybody to a certain to a site and play all the games on a site.
00:42:51
I mean, I don't know if there's a site around the United States that's big enough to house all these players like Disney World, but it's gotta be somewhere taking never number one ****.
00:43:02
I mean, where they never never land.
00:43:05
Never.
00:43:06
Definitely a, uh, Neverland Ranch.
00:43:12
But there's no football.
00:43:14
There's no stadium there.
00:43:16
Uh, you know, a Peter Pan, right? The amu*****t park never never learned.
00:43:25
E mean, it's gotta be somewhere.
00:43:29
Where can you yo just like if you draft.
00:43:33
If you take him to a hotel and travel and go to another state, Yo, chances are someone has it is going to get out.
00:43:39
Broke it in that particular state just or designate like designate four stadiums that are within close proximity of flying to each other and have all the games played in those four stadiums.
00:43:49
Do you one on each one on each coast or one on East Coast? Yeah.
00:43:56
East, East, west, north, south, You know, just do that.
00:44:00
Yeah.
00:44:01
You mentioned something that actually just kind of, like, hit me.
00:44:03
It's not gonna hurt the billionaires, right from a money perspective.
00:44:07
So how come the billionaires aren't saying anything about this? How come they're not like, yo, cancel the season? If it's not gonna hurt their pockets, how they're making, They're making money while the seasons going on.
00:44:18
But look, the players players air, dispense dispensable man like expendable.
00:44:23
They don't care.
00:44:24
I saw someone say that player catching Kobe is like tearing his a c l like No, it's not the same thing.
00:44:30
Buddy like this is different.
00:44:33
And also again, it zits money.
00:44:37
These this NFL brings in a lot of money for these cities.
00:44:42
I mean, you talk about cities like like Cleveland.
00:44:45
For instance, when LeBron left Cleveland, it was like, Yo, we have nothing else downtown, You know? So and it's like that in a lot of NFL cities you talk about like, Jacksonville.
00:44:58
I've been in Jacksonville.
00:45:00
Look, I didn't think that I could be.
00:45:02
I don't think it was possible to be bored in Florida.
00:45:05
Uh, I was bored as hell.
00:45:07
Jackson watching way might have some listening from Jackson.
00:45:11
I they'll they'll tell you.
00:45:13
E went to the beach.
00:45:18
That was nice, but there's nothing.
00:45:20
There's nothing out there.
00:45:21
There's nothing out there to do. And they have a downtown.
00:45:23
So I mean that that type of thing is bringing, you know, lots of money.
00:45:28
It's fueling the local economy.
00:45:30
E mean you talk about the other local bars, all the local businesses that feed off of what's happening.
00:45:36
So it's you can't just It is at its core, just a sport.
00:45:43
But from an economic standpoint, it is a business.
00:45:46
It is a business that generates a lot of dollars in a lot of small businesses depend on it, So e mean, this is a conversation, probably for another time, but I thought about this with N b. A.
00:45:58
At some point, sports leagues need to stop forcing franchises into cities that really can't economically support themselves.
00:46:06
Well, if they're doing that, Teoh help generate money, right? But then, But when they do that, they give free land to the owner to build the stadium free tax dollars.
00:46:16
And like all the money you give to an MBA or NFL owner to put up a stadium, that money could be used for jobs and education.
00:46:23
For the people that already are there the fuel, the economy.
00:46:26
It isn't like the billionaire owners coming out of their own pocket.
00:46:29
So put it in cities that could actually support it.
00:46:32
And I know there's only so many, but I'm just saying, like I got it is probably conversation another day.
00:46:37
But this is a yeah, I think everything that they have the Giant and just put into the Jets.
00:46:45
Yeah, a disaster, which is a good A.
00:46:53
That is a good second.
00:46:55
But I will say this a man, I said.
00:46:59
I said going into the season that by week eight week eight the NFL season will be postponed or shut down if it continues to go in this route.
00:47:12
Man, my prediction may be right.
00:47:15
I hope they figure it out.
00:47:17
Um, I hope the safety of the players and the personnel is at the forefront of this situation.
00:47:23
I don't believe that it is, but we'll see, man.
00:47:27
We will see.
00:47:28
So I guess now we move on to our favorite part of the show.
00:47:33
Our guy resident.
00:47:35
Like I said, I resident MBA inside.
00:47:37
Alex, you know NFL is in his specialty, so he's gonna He's gonna leave us for this one.
00:47:43
But we appreciate them staying on.
00:47:46
I'll be backstage.
00:47:47

00:47:49

00:52:56
****.
00:52:59
Um, you know what? If they played each other last week, I probably would have thought the same way.
00:53:05
And I think we all picked Miami to lose last week.
00:53:08
And Miami made everybody look, I picked.
00:53:11
I actually picked them to win last week.
00:53:13
What Negro did nobody in Miami? I picked Miami to win that Thursday night game.
00:53:19

00:53:39
I think Russell e think Russell goes off this week again and continues his, uh, his NFL m v p run.
00:53:50
I'm giving Miami some credit this week after I think that you know what I think that's the week that Fitzgerald starts to look a little if he and then they start looking towards tour tour. Yeah.
00:54:02
Good point.
00:54:03
Okay.
00:54:04

00:54:26
I'm I'm a little bit disappointed in how they've been playing.
00:54:29
So, um, coming into Tampa Bay, Tampa went in 23 charges 17.
00:54:39
23 17 Tampa Who? You gotta be close.
00:54:43
I think it's gonna be that type of game.
00:54:46
23 17.
00:54:47
But I think Tampa Bay, um, scores late.
00:54:50
Tampa Bay 31 17.

00:56:18
We got destroyed by the Brown Joe and then Lamar Jackson.
00:56:22
They're looking their chops off of that Monday night loss.
00:56:25
They took the Chiefs.
00:56:26
You really think we're going in? We're gonna go in and do something.
00:56:28

00:56:40
Look, man as you.
00:56:42
Aldo Bottom was my team.
00:56:44
There's been a It was a lot of a lot of fans of the team now 95 cells talking a lot of **** after we lost to Kansas City and we rightfully so we deserve some of the backlash.
00:56:58
We got our ass whipped.
00:56:59
Didn't look good, but then when they started talking smack, my score is going to reflect what I need to see.
00:57:08
Just just to shut the fans up of the Washington football team.
00:57:13
I have Baltimore 65 Washington.
00:57:16
Nothing.
00:57:20

So Okay, what did I say? I haven't said anything.
00:57:47
I don't know kwon, but I just need more e just because I'm a Washington e apologize e.
00:57:55

00:58:15
Kickoff. Who? You got one.
00:58:17
I got some Carolina boys.
00:58:19
E got Carolina boys winning, even though I like the ant man and what he brings to the table.
00:58:25
Um, coming into Carolina, I got them.
00:58:29
It's gonna be a dogfight.
00:58:31
So I got them.
00:58:32
14 7.
00:58:34
Okay, you got way on the same wave.
00:58:39
This this, uh, this week.
00:58:40
But I'm gonna have to go opposite with you on this one, too.
00:58:43
I wanted to pick Carolina.
00:58:45
I like what I look like with Teddy Bridgewater.
00:58:49
I like I like I like, you know, he'd be throwing Dodge.
00:58:51
Uh, but I got cardinals.
00:58:54

00:59:02
It's gonna be a quarters.
00:59:05
Too many quarters.
00:59:07
Anybody.
00:59:08
I think any person that's causing that team is DeAndre Hopkins.
00:59:11
I think I think Arizona I picked Arizona this week.
00:59:14
I do think it would be a dogfight.
00:59:15
So I agree with you there.
00:59:17
I got Arizona 28 Carolina 27.
00:59:22
Next game, we got our man Brandon Squad the New York football giants traveling to Los Angeles to face the Rams.
00:59:33
It is the first four o'clock ballgame of this week.
00:59:37
Who you got be? I rams 37 to 9, like I don't I just don't see how we blocked Aaron.
00:59:49
Donald, I think he's going to destroy us today.
00:59:53
Um, ****.
00:59:56
So I got way both of y'all picked against your squads this week? Yeah, we have.
01:00:01
We can't.
01:00:03
We will start winning when our offensive line can run, block and pass block consistently, they can't.
01:00:12
And today they face arguably the best player in football arguably.
01:00:18
I mean, he's a defensive tackle.
01:00:19
He could get 20 sacks.
01:00:20
I mean, you know, he's there's no way we could block them.
01:00:25
Qanoon e I feel a shot coming, but who? You got one? Well, since the fact that last week they got ran off the field by fourth string bums for spring bums, okay, and got destroyed, literally.
01:00:43
I'm gonna go with you.
01:00:44
I'm gonna go with the story that you have.
01:00:46
Mike. I'm gonna go with 62.
01:00:48
And for the mere fact that giant suck.
01:00:53
Uh, Aaron Donald is the best player on the NFL right now.
01:00:57
And last week I was showing clips that he literally picked up with one arm and dropped him on his neck.
01:01:04
Okay, so he's gonna do the same thing to Daniel Jones.
01:01:08
And I'm sorry, but Daniel Jones, he's gonna get destroyed.
01:01:13
It's not even gonna be a game, you know, Like they're gonna be Oh, man, he may.
01:01:19
He may pull Avante Vontae Davis, and he may retire at halftime.
01:01:23
And maybe those games he's gonna he's gonna get destroyed so giants don't have a chance in this.
01:01:31
Wow.
01:01:32
Well, look, listen, I agree with you all and down on his **** near, if not the best player in football, what he's doing to these offensive lineman Like the way he tossing him around like they are £150 men is amazing.
01:01:47
I got the Rams 34 the Giants 14.
01:01:50
That zone that's being generous 14 is being generous.
01:01:55
I don't even know score today.
01:01:58
Oh, man, wait.
01:01:59

01:02:02
We I skipped the Minnesota Vikings traveling to Houston to face the The Texans in the O for game.
01:02:09

01:02:35

01:02:36
Yeah, I went with Houston.
01:02:37
I think I like Houston a little better than the Minnesota.
01:02:41
Like I said, I can't believe both of these teams that have no wins so far.
01:02:45
But I'm gonna go with Houston getting their first win. 26.
01:02:48
20.
01:02:50
Um, now moving to the indie coats, traveling to Chicago for 25 Kickoff.
01:02:58

01:03:43

01:03:45
I got, I got the I got Vegas.
01:03:51

01:04:00
Okay.
01:04:01
Who you gotta be? Vegas 23.

01:04:14
I'm standing there waiting, e Like what Gruden is doing so far? Yeah.
01:04:19
Las Vegas.
01:04:20
Las Vegas has been looking pretty good, but I think I'm gonna be the only one on the opposite side of this one.
01:04:25
I'm going Buffalo 28 14.
01:04:28
They find a way to pull them out, man.
01:04:30
Buffalo finds a way to pull them out.
01:04:31
They find a way toe, lose them in the midst of the game, but then find a way to pull out the win at the end.
01:04:37
So I'm gonna go buffalo.
01:04:40
The Sunday night game.
01:04:41
We got the Philadelphia Eagles traveling to San Francisco to face the 40 Niners.
01:04:45
Shout out to my man a king.
01:04:48
Um That's the 8. 20 kickoff.
01:04:51
Who? You got? One.
01:04:53
You know, Philly, sanfran.
01:04:55
They always played good games.
01:04:57
Um, e o take San's friend on this one.
01:05:02
It's because they destroyed the Giants last week and they're coming off of, uh, coming off, you know? Hi.
01:05:08
Hi, head.
01:05:09
So, um e don't think Philly can make that transition, So I'm going with a friend.

Uh uh, 18. 10.
01:05:21
Who you gotta be.
01:05:22
I got SANFRAN 27 17.
01:05:27
Yeah, I went with San Francisco this week.
01:05:29
I got I got San Francisco 28 25.
01:05:32
I think I think Carson wins keeps them in the game.
01:05:35
But you know, he'll be constantly in sometime in the game today in the 40 Niners, because I don't think grapple it was playing.
01:05:43
Um, so they are still playing.
01:05:45
Who's Philly? Back up.
01:05:47
Jalen hurts Hurts.
01:05:50
All right, Jalen.
01:05:51
Jalen might get some time today.
01:05:53
It's been rumored that he's gonna play, so I don't know. We'll see.
01:05:56
I think he's there. Back up.
01:05:58
I don't know if he's their main backup of these.
01:06:01
He's supposed to be suiting up, so we'll see.
01:06:05
And then we have the well, we do have to pick the postpone matchup between New England and Kansas City.
01:06:12
We got New England traveling the Kansas City.
01:06:15
The game is supposed to be played.
01:06:16
Now, on Monday night.
01:06:18
Who? You got? Kansas City.
01:06:22
Right? I need I say more.
01:06:25
Uh, Patrick Mahomes? Yes.
01:06:28
What's your school of corn? Uh uh.
01:06:34
Doesn't matter.
01:06:35
It Patrick Mahomes.
01:06:37
Okay, that's your score.
01:06:38
Patrick Mahomes, Who you got? I think I'm probably gonna pick Casey every week.
01:06:45
30 20? Yeah.
01:06:48
I got Kansas City this week, especially after what they did to my boys.
01:06:51
I got him 35 22.
01:06:54
Um, I think I may have picked the score before they got before Cam came down with Corona.
01:07:02
So I figured camp can muster them to about 2021 points or so, But I'm gonna stick to it.
01:07:07
So I'm gonna go Casey 35 22 and then we got the Monday night matchup.
01:07:11
We got the Falcons who looks like e.
01:07:15
No, you said earlier the jets of the worst team in league, But I don't know, bro.
01:07:19
Atlanta looks pretty bad.
01:07:21
Ev Atlanta traveling the green Bay to face the packers.
01:07:25
Who? You got one.
01:07:26
Yeah.
01:07:27
And Rogers about the cup.
01:07:29
He's about to cup 28.
01:07:32
17.
01:07:33
Not even know what? I'm sorry.
01:07:35
28 14 28.
01:07:36
14 because Atlanta sucks.
01:07:38
And Matt Ryan, He, uh I don't see it with them anymore.
01:07:44
I just don't see it with them anymore.
01:07:45
Um, yeah, And Rodgers and the Packers take it.
01:07:50
What do you got? Big? Um, I'm gonna I'm gonna say Atlanta gets their their first win today.
01:07:58
I mean, I'm gonna 33 28.
01:08:03
And the reason is because, yeah, their own three And you know, and I've said that I don't trust their defense before, but if you actually look at at these games that they played that they kind of let go.
01:08:15
I mean, they were up big on the Cowboys, and they only lost last week by four points.
01:08:20
And when they played the Seahawks, you know, they lost 38 25.
01:08:25
So there's two possession game, they're but everybody's losing to the Seahawks right now, but they they're at least keeping it close on being competitive enough where I think you know, three losses in a row.
01:08:36
They're gonna come out and and beat the Packers.
01:08:39
I got Atlanta 33 28.
01:08:41
Wow.
01:08:42
Wow.
01:08:44
Really? Okay.
01:08:45
You know what? I know you've been on Atlanta for for a little while.
01:08:49
I don't I don't get this with you in Atlanta.
01:08:51
Picked Atlanta.
01:08:52
The win at all this year isn't the first time I've picked Atlanta.
01:08:55
The win, you know, they're whack.
01:08:57
I don't like what we They lost to the Cowboys.
01:09:00
The Cowboys came into home, they was up and the Cowboys came up.
01:09:05
And still with their ass is And the game the score was 42 39 was one point game.
01:09:12
I'm talking about the walking, the first.
01:09:13
When they came, they came back.
01:09:14
They came back. Yeah.
01:09:16
I mean, they came back.
01:09:17
Yeah, to me.
01:09:18
They they had the Cowboys destroyed.
01:09:22
It's a 60 minute game, you know, It's a 60 minute game, and that's that's what you always have to remember.
01:09:27
Like the Falcons can score.
01:09:30
Okay, they clearly can score.
01:09:32
They scored 25 39 26 points in their first three games.
01:09:36
They can score.
01:09:37
The problem is to me, that defense, if they could get some, if they could get some more stops clearly, you know, I haven't watched all of their games or not, but, I mean, you're giving up 38 40 and 30.
01:09:51
Clearly, the problem here is the defense.
01:09:53
E mean, so I a za giant Look, as a Giants fan, I'd probably be talking playoffs right now if we scored 25 39 26 points in the game.
01:10:05
I think our defense is good enough.
01:10:07
Thio support the team that scores that much believe e.
01:10:10
I just I just think, you know, Atlanta just turns it around.
01:10:13
They might not win another game, but way No, you'll be talking way getting all type of shots.
01:10:18
Everything way.
01:10:20
No, you would be saying something right now.
01:10:21
Uh, Mike, my uh yeah, I can't I can't step on them.
01:10:27
I can't step out and living like you on this one.
01:10:30
I think Atlanta could score points with anybody, though, so I do think it will be some points put on the board, but I think Green Bay wins 27 24 on.
01:10:40
That's the pick him again.
01:10:43
I'm gonna show the weekly.
01:10:44
I'm gonna show the weekly overall right now.
01:10:47
Like I said corns in the lead.
01:10:49
But I'm on his ass.
01:10:51
And hopefully this will be the week that I take over.
01:10:54
Take over the lead.
01:10:57
I'm gonna take the lead with the with the Atlanta Green Bay game.
01:11:00
Yeah, those those type of games, man, that put people in the lead That changes the changes.
01:11:06
The overall, um, the numbers there.
