You guys have been so it's. Good news about hot Mike reply to replies again soon on 1080 boats made. Number flies. Portland State fired its men's basketball coach the game quick name close states men's basketball coach. They just effect. Neither you alone and it's time near me that that guy now from John Smith and red trim and in the is pulling of this column on the butt and join NATO. Eyes nameless Tyler again being I was. That's what I said if you go back and read Indy and read the record you'll find out that's what I said read the record as though we Cuba. Now we have a stenographer is at least I've hit it way back then uneven and audio world showed us a little over a transcript we're on the radio the guns. LN and look really been there any for eight seasons he finishes 112 and 133. His best season they went seventeen and fifteen. This year they were fifteen and sixteen so I don't know I don't even know why they have. Sports over there I think it's tough putt it's a really tough. So I mean there's still on the fence like you commit report and did some good that are just blowing up and that's the argument by Jerry and came here that was canceled. Snapped here by. To get and then to commit resource it by the way of prominence USC in the playing game tonight right now UC Davis leads north Carolina central. Of 4943. With twelve minutes left for the right to play Kansas. That in the tournament. Let's see here now the ravens. They're starting senator Jerry mean Zune. Is now the starting center of the San Francisco 49ers escorted a pro football focus he's the thirteenth best senator last year in the NFL so. Right meaty part of the broker it's a trade. And also swap sixth rounder it's so exciting move to your forty niners fan. They were get excited about a middle of the roads that are well Donta hightower returns. To the patriots got a big deal late. Doing where you're dealing a four year deal with the lead I think with X seventeen million in guaranteed in an overall could be up to 43 million bucks. The big deal and and he was tested in marketing net with Pittsburgh the Pittsburgh even knew there'd be news. I guess I terrorists is trying to drum up interest to get a better deal done for the patriots that. All along they knew that they are going to be reunited and you look on paper this doing the team is stacked oh and by the way it's. LaMarcus Aldridge it though it's mean of course the Boise game. Gently maybe. Fugitives aged fugitive game the blazers are taking on the spurs in San Antonio tonight. The spurs do have LaMarcus Aldridge I don't know if he's gonna start but I guess he's given me out there in the Sununu restrictions so. Because there's this guys this is due to the markets and can you scary thing we know that he's got that our condition. He had that here in Portland was never a major thing really anytime you hear indefinite in heart condition it scares you a little bit and against everything is on the story again. Wish him all the best but the blazers got legends last night in New Orleans. No love no and circuits is the best that are in the NBA can fine. So updating on where they sit there and ninth in the west they are now two and a half back of Denver to. For the eighth seed and they're venturing back into really low in the west territory that. You can kick in the gym which is gonna be is if you lose heats up by like half again. Right that's gonna be the deal exactly. Is why you today either this is why they should have tanked up a month ago there is a great article by the way our beds and today about. Speaking that the lakers are we not only has all stages shut down Timothy Mazda today during tonight music though we we're shutting him down but doesn't much look. It's exciting new wreckage would Willard he found something there shut down nerd gets shut down Willard led CJ score fifty game. Call it an anchor at the lakers have been actively tanking for like four months and it's honest. But for them yet there by the way they have overtaken the suns the last. But from bottom of the last books that they're kind of in the same position that. They get the number two if the lakers have a high pick big key bit if it's. Falls suddenly got at the top four then they have to give it up. Number two Kwanzaa Martin leaves Cali stepped down as men's basketball coach Darren takes a seven year DC EO to go coach at Missouri. And he doesn't just us supporter coach flip him. Washington. You're talking about Michael Porter senior ex who is an assistant coach under Lorenzo Roma are at Washington. Yes he has left Washington to go to Missouri with quantum are now two things need to know about Porter senior. Is that he's a longtime friend of Lorenz Iran Mars and by the way that is number one in the high fives that Lorenzo Roma are got fired at Washington's considered too marketing tie together so. We don't know the timeline of it. But Michael Porter senior number one he's he and his kids are from Missouri didn't they came out to Washington. Because. For Omar was getting porter's kid. Junior and then I think there are two other Brothers there who were playing with a brand new Roy's team. And Nathan hale when I was when colony complained David Hale did just in the state champs in Indiana they're ranked as the number one team. The country so they were going to Washington because senior was an assistant under Lorenzo now raw Omar's been fired and seniors leading going back home to Missouri with Alonso Martin which likely means. Nothing definitive they'll likely means that the projected number one pick in the 2018 NBA draft Michael Porter junior is now when I go to Missouri and not Washington. And by the way the dad doesn't have any coaching experience it was give an opinion you know he does he coach women who pick and he was a B was about a month such a women's dress welcome yeah he was it was given 300000 dollars ambience has to go to Washington I wonder if the fact that his son was really good at. And he did. Well they the question now is did Lorenzo Romo our get fired and then senior went like all screw this I'm gonna go with one so who is out on his way to Missouri which have all happened today. Or. Did Kwanzaa those steel. Porter senior as he was headed to Missouri. Leaving Lorenzo Roma are in doubt about getting Michael Porter junior and then watched a look at that went that was the only reason we're keeping you around your. Fired by I tend to believe it's the latter and also came out we had a yen for NASA on from a KJ are up in Seattle and he said that he came out today that. Porter junior had not signed a national letter of intent. So he may never sign you never signed it and you don't have to do those. So he is free to. Go elsewhere and something tells me that he is going elsewhere I think that the package deal. When you get senior U Ginn junior and Missouri just gotten if you're Washington now misery where does this leave yes. Grew them I Yad that's the real question is what all Washington do. We talked with for an ass about Mark Few but I think we all agree that it's not like football it's not like. The Chris Peterson move work Peterson. Was a Boise State and had it cooking but he can't win a champ ship there. Mark Few can only champ should be gone zag he's getting great players that there he is became nine only makes one point. You know 345 million dollars. I now let it roll bar was in the two million. Range some of the highest paid coaches are in the three to four and then on up the leak coach money arranged. So the question becomes you know they're gonna go after Mark Few. But would he leave guns that did it take that job and is it really that day of an upgrade. I. Open the checkbook and there are a lot of kids a lot of basketball recruits coming out of Seattle but. It's not he has no competition. It add to their guns Agha none but he doesn't have to compete against. Mean he plays on the hill play Arizona played Arizona this year but is up to compete in that leaking compete in that crappy as Wes goes leak. In a number one seed two C three C whatever it is the turn any has had absolutely air. Every Jiri is a chance to win. Oh pressure. You know he turned out organ putting up a new arena. If they pass on that I I don't know. Whenever said that Washington was able to lure. Chris Petersen Boise and Mark Few from. And in dagger that did great hire be a phenomenal fire slam dunk car and I'm not sure it's taking getting now I don't think it's like the Peterson thing Randy Bennett the other name at Saint Mary's and everyone seems to be all hot. Bothered about that job cited five how good is the Washington job 513. Is it is it as good as the organ job. An interest in question. We'll talk about that next on the fan. This is a tournament week they should know primetime what I sickens soup trust you by us legal market on 1080 tram. Well we thought he was he was staying. Nilekani may go but then there was report the news instead. And now we know ego it was not a rule he don't. Lorenzo or are it's like three million dollars at the door them so fired by the Washington Huskies will be. And I you know I find that that job most interest dean. Because we always wanna compare. The Basilan just the football yeah you know. I was and I think it's like easier to win in basketball or at least turn around a program. In basketball isn't football and that's where you get one to two kids and a and oh it every change in football. You except that you get one skinned and mean a damn thing remark got all kinds kids didn't do any. Well that's not that's not true at all the last is seven years he's dead and he got Brandon Roy way in all those Danny's got a lot. First of all Seattle has a ton of talent that's coming out to see whether it stays in Seattle there goes elsewhere that is a rich basketball area he's got a lot of kids in that state to staying up and he's built he built a good program there it's just. Yes in it they haven't been determined since 2012. Yet and that's just not good enough with the youth level of talent that he's getting so he he's always had the reputation even when they were donuts sweet sixteen. In those team this is more about re he was the same way right at the same reputation they can recruit but can they coach. And I think that's her that's he's always said that Brett Rowe Mars had that yes but he just slipped and slipped and slid them interment forever and they only won nine games but they still only won nine games with. The player who's going to be number one pick in the draft and he's still pretty in I was looking at it online Vera. They're recruiting class for next year. Is fifth in the nation yeah well Ali morgue of that I think importer kids are going elsewhere. Well but they're not all this year this is just the one Michael Porter junior but they still have I was looking Phyllis they still have two kids from Garfield. And then they got some kid named Blake Harris is a point guard from Chapel Hill, North Carolina another kid from Saint Louis then make up one held a class so. You know who knows what happens with all of them who knows what even have as a Porter but. I just find that job real interesting with all that talent that's there. You know is that a better job then Oregon like like OK there's one of two ways they can go they can hire. Vicki go be like Korean. And just. Make a solid hire a day just Dana Allman did not anybody's socks off still doesn't again Allman says that quiet the brawny guy goes about his business. But. They're good guy he's a hell of a coach a lot of people are saying that's the Randy Bennett higher you go to the guy from saint Mary was visiting India that India or you think given in football terms and go wait a minute. Can Washington with all that talent out there. And you know this deal lure of of Seattle. In the pac 1210 days pulled Chris Peterson. And the thing about that is all you have to do is keep your kids home you put a little fence up around the state you can win there with that. Enabled by the way to stop with the Brandan Wright stuff now they're not gonna bring Iraq no brainer it was coached for one year. He was in high school and you know even coach it was just he got a bunch he got the Porter kids and a bunch of other transfers. Are there on the journey then yeah I mean come on he's they're not Washington. Is not gonna hire brand Iran does not meet. And have enough experience zero chance and by the way he doesn't mean that the Porter kids are coming that ship has sailed peas and that in happen. To your question is it a better job than organ. Boy that's tough it's certainly not as good a program doesn't have bill. But I think it's a better job. It's not it's it's not a better program. Them to better job I think it's easier to where Washington is an organ. And I think that makes it a better job I think you have all the resources you need to win at Oregon I think you have all the resources you need to win at Washington. You have great facilities. You know both places organs are shining your organs are nicer. But when you look at recruiting classes you make your rent watches had a better recruiting classes that organ pace seven dollar ending with. So all things being equal if you had any league coach in both of those places which won't be easier to win and I think Washington. Simply from a matter of the pipeline the you have coming in there. From the state of Washington and you don't have to really be a national recruiter and I think you're able to get more high profile kids to to come there. I'm looking at their history. You guys can tell me like she's not my keys from New Jersey but you can maybe tell me more. Were they ever a big player. In men's basketball defying big like outside of the I'm thinking I mean I've been here since 2000 so the last seventeen years I've I'm aware of where they've kind of fallen in the landscape but. Define big just you know like for what they were like football now every elite. I've never in my lifetime where they ever. Were they ever anything like that now. And he may be if you if you wanna go way back a look connected their old coaches I'm member Bob Bender the other guy's final. I'm remembering these dudes now growing up it was a non factor I'm looking here like in the eighties they Miro and the sweet sixteen once in 1984. And then in in 98 but that's you know that's more kind of present day stuff they made around the 316 to know so that Dave and there have been a final four. Now go to Washington I'm looking here any lead gates back in 1943. In elite eight in 48. Leading 51. Got 1953 Diego on four on four. You do Austin Kansas rock jock. Did you actually know that deposition and was a dealer on the same ship. 1953 KUN at all and I don't know if they do not run around and at a loss and in the past they've been a one. And then they know they just there has not been a now and the entire success. And that that's interesting to me that. Maybe you know they just don't commit to it. May be they are like organ without Phil Knight I mean he on. We all know what Phil and Nike does forward again it is a luxury that. Most schools don't have in Washington even though it's in a bigger match pulse an area may be a more desirable area. But maybe not depending on the kid. They don't have the film I think you mean it like for vessels on earlier he's like look make no mistake they're losing money gap in so are they gonna pay four million dollars for a coach hello they can't tell. He's in there's talk of there the boosters were the ones and had to step up in because they ended by now three million dollars to go way row Marceau. They're not you know they don't have money grown countries and I know Oregon doesn't either. But having noted the film night booster connection is too as it changes the game in Washington just doesn't have that. Organ is a better program Thursday Candace is seats edit and get in the semantics but I just think it would be easier to win at Washington. Based on on on where your job but I wonder. A potential. You know I wonder what is the potential for the watched a program again and kind of maybe being blind a little bit by what Chris Peterson's on their but the right higher. In that market with those players. In the pac twelve wow I I think fit now that seems like man they can be had they can be big time we'll look at. I went there and how to listen guys that are from the Seattle area just over the years and it is to me it's all it's tonic guy ridiculous. The amount of of great college and NBA guys. That come out of the this is a greater Seattle area exe throwing the comments surrounding areas as just it's it's so who's on and on ran right. Print it Reuters Iran Paul Crawford Terrence Ross. Just had a pulled up and then and Brockman from there. And he did I need to go back books I started looking at the history of the of their program but Nate Robinson yeah I mean it's just there are their and Michael Dickerson. We're down memory played on those great Arizona teams Jason Terry is from there as well. Mean it's just it was on and on and on as you look through of of these guys and you're like oh lord maybe a higher Allman. You people to brush a key. And that's they had I don't you look at Hinkle you could look at tickle the team color Martell lesser Isiah Thomas. Yeah all remember those yes on from there. It's just it's it's meanie maybe we're fool ourselves maybe this is Arizona State. You know we we say all the time like manners or state job should be great in all you do is you keep kids home and he got everything you could want and yet they don't consistently do what organ. It's not just over the last 67 years organ. Is a better program. That Washington and Moscow is is it's. You're either program but. I think in basketball is just so structures mr. relayed that. You can win anywhere if he had the right coach look at some of these schools that are really good basketball now right like ball comes Agha. Look no further I mean you if you get the right coach you can win anywhere butler's been in the finals twice. On Zagat DCU. George Mason made a final four but these. And a bye George Mason is it does seem like they're back there every year but these use in the tournament again Virginia commonwealth did. You can win anywhere yeah Saint Mary's that guys went in 25. To thirty games a year down there. At saint mabus and that is to replace that and so for the thing about it is it's like if you. So you think about it that way that you can build a winner anywhere holy crap. Then you just start looking at okay what has. What outside of the traditional. Powers the blue bloods what can rival that like he can't nobody can be Kentucky North Carolina Kansas or duke right nobody yet he just. There isn't there they're the ones. But outside of that who's next in what do you need low Washington seems to have everything you need to. Good facilities good campus. Plenty of recruits in your backyard. Yeah challenged them you know you would think with the right coach there he saw this Woodrow market they're doing it gave mark a great coach and Romario was putting number one seeds in the NCAA tournament. If Mark Few is doing what he's doing guns that it is no reason why they can't. They can't be awesome that Washington you're in and year. In the takes these are freaking out Terrence Ross for important. Now sir. Next he's very very sensitive. If would be years. Mr. Morgan has had some some guys come through here Aaron Miles Michael Lee. From Seattle. Where they go. Chances. Brought shock jock is a lot of CME people biomass that's the yell at me for saying that they're from Seattle. It's a lot of a lot of potential they're good. You know what his potential really get chip if you're just make direct ocean and big higher. Is you tire form are the right to the program has sucked for a number of years and we had to keep their recruiting class together out. He had shot. Via the money and you open it Terrence Jones 20 wait you can look. Kevin Love Terrence Jones all from Seattle all Seattle band soul. So what's nice fall asleep in there. You came my younger be prepping for your baseball show. Aren't gonna. Years those discussions tonight I think Mike's preppy for the Chicago or at least thinking enemy about the show. We all know that on these days might pays less attention than normal which is practically none what's on the big show and neither. Today is going to be state of the sport state of baseball we've been doing themed weeks to prep for the season so this week will be doing a state of the sport themed week 7 o'clock 7 o'clock B notch to it it it. If people say that the you know the tally your backyard and allow the town the council Lexington Lawrence and to your point. Those well that's nonsense we've seen those blue bloods can pull from from the Ginn and L then those guys had set a goal difference go look at their rosters a look at duke North Carolina can type team Kansas. They are a different animal yes. And that's a saying they just you never NN. You never gonna crack that net you know is not if you look at the same way you went outside of them you look at that it's it's gotta be within a couple hundred miles of your program for the most part. And you would think that being in Seattle that you have a huge advantage there all they haven't done squat with it you know who's another great Seattle player in the game Sama. He asks. So good. Kyle Singler right south to come as this guy etc. yes maybe yes or way and I think that's right I'm certain in my late. On a side note Portland State fired their coach. Can't they just hire a Portland like a former blazer to go to match what EPs known Terry Porter. Perkins Terry Porter coach both a pool a could be fun right dual double duty who would media doing its wagon here. Maybe when cliff gets better he can go coach. Did the pop on the bikes hikes or X or do and I do anything right. Yeah you can Kiki do you then he was go to Houston at one point goodies that you. And a former blazer off that you PP SU Steve Blake get to their sell tickets Portland man in their report they liked Terry Porter and gets people fired up. Men our rights what's next. Doing. I don't know where would you like to go with this young goes some attorney talk you wanna delve into more. Men have no news and notes now. Some Eddie lacy fat weight but stealth fat weight but stuff yeah. It's lot of money why not be in fat. It's about the one seed in the last who wants it. Yeah this guy is an important. Nobody did let's talk about that there's some general concern that starting to creep up for both. Cleveland and Golden State yeah so let's talk about that I mean I think that's an interesting question is the once does that even matter. Because the warriors are starting to take a page out of the Popovich puck yeah. And nobody's done that for all these years but now Steve Kerr is we'll get that next here's Mike. This is a tournament reconditioning trying John mobilized against duke trust you got us legal market volunteer and Haiti Austria man. LaMont UNICEF plane game here. North Carolina central and. Yeah no I was. For BC gave us again easy as soon. They snot. And the winner of this will be knocking out Kansas. I can go ahead and definitively tell you right now. Based on what I'm seeing with my. I'm also. These teams will lose by a at least when he that's just what they want cheap to pay a beside ESPN today had a I got a good predictor model like probability odds of fifteen had it might have been a 14141516. Seeds and their chances of winning moon and I will tell you that the only. Sixteen seed with even a 1% chance to to knock anyone off. The winner of this game against your Kansas Jeff will which ones it just it it's that either one had a 2% chance. It's that's probably just the Kansas effect probably. I think this is evident that no other sixteen seed was listed. Just Kansas vs the winner alternates entries today I saw somebody that said though one of the pundits said that north Carolina central here and is the best of all the sixteen seats. Maybe that's why they said he did this seems actually really good and should have been in determined not. Playing in this game but I tell you but watching them play not so good they saw this is this is a battle of futility although it's coming out of the wires there's only. It's a one point game with a minute and twenty left but. It's cute because they're playing their asses off if they're playing so hard. And really give it to plan their assets. You think about that like when your college basketball player in year one of these schools like your dream write you just got to get to the turn in and work your ass off all year in your reward is. The need to go get bludgeoned by cans bullies to get a plague him like this. Yeah I mean that's a better thing going in there and well getting bludgeoned wonder man our only experienced it a football guy from the mid major programs like ever played Gilligan had a national tea jeopardy thing. I wonder for the for kids they went and did this make you. This you play for years at a at a college a small school you go to the NCAA tournament once you just give it. You get show lately by Kansas or duke or whoever. It's positive memory we you do you look back on that they're like hand when it what a time. Or you like really input and all that work and this was my reward is that when government teeth kicked in one year at the turn. How about that sits on year maybe 51015. Years down the road and now. And Jason. A cat I got to go play like in a fear like why they went play in the Fiesta Bowl against a Georgia lost by fifty. Is one year we were supposed to be well we thought we are gonna be BCS buster and then we got 72 hung on us by Hawaii but we would've gone and played. You know whoever that year and they probably kick our ass. And I I don't know if that's a good memory here and they can fight to go play Davis and David Goliath style in them would have Goliath. The consulate your faith it is still prostate got that up to you right Kansas and they have the does it can track down some of med team with their around here. Think my tea is great experience so it just didn't know what you what you think that all the years later if you might cure all and Alec you just you join us in the end. What one of these teams does you're gonna get your ass who looked against. Get one of these teams and I suppose someone asked to lose a once Eckstein battled it. It's never happened before and most of the games I'm assuming the average margin of victory of 116 is is probably twenty points. All right well other blazes are playing the spurs tonight. I am looking at that home run record. You know they went they did they won't go to the first round tears hero who. The the bikes bro and I just remember the one year they may have gone too but I I remember the one against Kansas because there is a teacher it's printed up. Then lost by 24 to that was adorable. To Kansas. And and look at who's on that team others Jeremiah Dominguez. Remember him yeah I do remember him. Scott Morrison those guys they went down they're the ones that went down on the big. The food they get arrested in Mexico or something you have there is that whole thing can Burnett I do remember that ever came of that. Don't know. Cover all. Kind of disappeared into break. Are any busy look in the it to average Immersion in English to our MBA topic there. So very good experience. Well the blazes a plane spurs NM. A wonder which team. Will be the number one seed and doesn't even matter is does kind of pertained to the blazers should they get the eighteen. But I don't know how important I do them think it is which will be its next 25 points by the way. Yet they went to the NCAA tournament the and year after losing to Kansas to did it. And remember that now and they lost to Xavier. By eighteen. The cab sense that they went to this format which was 1985. The one vs sixteen the average. Margin in those games. Has been 24 point 73 points 25 points that the average margin of victory when you're sixteen so. At least now like these guys that you get one game that you can win but you know years stared and asking can you for you. Knew when you win your conference tournament title in BA wraps up next on the ten. This is a tournament recondition O'Brien John what I sickens suit brought you back up we go mortgage on Jay Nady drove trim. Oh he's back. What was fired up during the break. To some passion over there. Was fired after the break jealous and the media love being your gonna. So the spurs are playing the blazers turned over there you're ready if you amber at the injury in a long. Really been taken that work out idea he did laser tied. We'll look overly loose but. The plane dispersion now button and the spurs are right I mean now all Franken. And a half game back in order I believe you are correct throw pulled up right now for. He got so under this is. Pontificating hip half game back. Wonder how much I didn't care about being a one seed now when you look at the stand dean's. You'd say you would care about being in the one because obviously you get home Koreans the other yeah in the west finals but to. The one verses eight games can be way easier than one verse seven game against Memphis Memphis or Denver not that you know. Let did that Denver's this are you push are ready you'd much rather see Dem is the Denver lovely myth or Portland or Minnesota any of those T India dated eat you want to play 88 seed yeah if you if you care about that they probably don't a pricey well we can beat any of them including Memphis so. When are they were not that. But. I think if you asked either team to be honest review they are never what they would be can it be health. Of course eat your mortgage issues health overby in all of this is once this is why I like what Golden State's doing and they don't look good but curse shut down those guys in the ninth. And they're gonna reevaluate Durant will see if they get the ramp back but it's. They should not push themselves. Seek to what without Durant. To get the one because gerrymandering to distill the night he was on nine inside the NBA. And they're asking him about that he said. Look we push our we push ourselves last year when 73 games. In winter blues in the finals. So art perspective this year is much different we don't care or anything but winning the final regular season doesn't mean she acts so right now wants Arthur Jason. Raiders' season doesn't win doesn't he Jack but home feel our home court against the spurs would. Yeah it does Hollywood so it's not something you don't consider. But he was basically saying look we don't care about any of it. Which I found that pretty interesting and. San Antonio's knew what when nine of ten in gold states. What five and five in their last ten so you certainly had two teams going the opposite direction right now including when they had the nobody played games and Antonio routed. Antonio beat him down and then. You know what you Houston sitting near Houston may throw a monkey wrench in this whole damn thing and that may be the other thing about being you mentioned the one vs two seed. Not having to play the Houston Rockets and I don't think our team if if you're looking up down the west. The only team in there jazz clippers Oakland city Memphis Denver Portland Minnesota. Any of the teams that in their I don't big one of those teams gives the spurs or Golden State 12 of pause except for. The Houston Rockets I think Houston with the way they play the temple which they play the way Harden is playing defense they shoot the three like they do. I think that's the one that you want to avoid and and be in the one seed. You gave no way you'll avoid the Houston Rockets and tell. Well you'd eating at the spurs the spurs the rockets the rockets worries if you're the two seed you're gonna have to probably played the Houston Rockets and played well the other team whether your goal on the road on the road. Yeah I think that I'd tear so why does and I do think that matters. You know I was I was kind of begged campus map whatever it doesn't go when you kind of take a step back from the idea thing that matters the menu and I wonder of Golden State is we get down the stretch here. Were under what twenty games to play. I wonder gold state starts to. If they they start to try to ratchet up click does this every year in Miami did it right where they shuffle along and get to this point the Broncos on some sort of horse bleep. Chip on the shoulder sort of thing and then he'd egos of the secret motivation mode. Well gold states about the ranch and they were there really rough part of their schedule. And they were banged up and just gone dude we're not gonna we're not gonna do this yeah totally understand that the NBA schedule as rough. But coming down the stretch here you know what do they did. That's without Iran it's like the you don't break your back without him today to. You know easy for you shouldn't have to break your back in order to play better than what you've been doing here. Well you have to I mean they're trying it's just that's tested and just on period now. But. Then there's so it's an you know Santana got LaMarcus Aldridge back and so. Well that's an interesting why did get a consideration is it to the finals. Remember that the finals is not. I determined by anything other than best record yeah. So in the finals the warriors and spurs whether the the one or the two seeded we'll have home court they will have home court over Cleveland or whoever comes out easier because the nerve they're all at fifty what 5352. And out east I think Cleveland in forty. 44 right now the other Hugh says better record in Cleveland yeah. Although Cleveland I mean they're. And they're not out of the woods either. Mean no offense in Boston's two and have back and don't look now but the worse she didn't wizard mine was new York and Washington Wizards three back. Yeah so. I went in Cleveland has lost. A one sickens us six or seven attend their scuffle along to and are playing well and that timing here is that you you also. Wanna see here over the next couple weeks you wanna see these teams kinda. You start to get her going when here is he like this XE now mean mr. armour mr. Carr got a corner. Mean it's there's not that much time left in the season here in you don't wanna be playing like this come and laughs well I thought it was great that. Steve Kerr you know we've been talking like this for years and what the spurs have done this amazing. What they built it. But one little thing that they do that I am stunned that more teams don't do is take a page out of Popovich is book where he rests is sky dinner. And I know it is like when on the the reasons for not playing he list Tim Duncan is old yeah I know not everybody is as good as them C can't afford to. But. Boy. You know you know the rigors of this of the NBA season is long in yet tough stretches where they've got you on the road five or six games in a row and Ali's back to backs it I just am amazed that no coach ever really. Ever really does that mean she Q. Neil did it but he did on his own where he would schedule a surgery for a couple like a month before the season. Needing Kevin really fat and then not do any for the first three was the season and slowly as work is is self initiate. And then by the playoffs he would be certainly be until. But now Steve Kerr is done by Steve Kerr and he was the one who bitch about it last year when this first did it but now he's doing in in I totally understand why you realize the benefit especially when you start Macon deep runs. In the post absolutely this LeBron does that he just he just does it kind of he he disguises. Any kind of besides it goes longer period of time but it. Gold state now is kind of getting into this right see you you go the whole way and win NBA title and then you go the entire way again you are seven games in the finals. If you look at the actual Wear and tear that that puts on your body LaBroque spindle like what's five or six finals in a row. I think and now both sinks in that territory they're making deep runs every year. You know you gotta. You gotta pay attention do you gotta pay attention to your legs of that stuff will let up on yet. More lists last fixes some other warriors lost the finals because they were tired gimme a break they're up 31 I don't think that's a dream on he was saying now all he's saying as. This regular seasons we've been through that we're chastened some in the regular season and it doesn't matter we want to be at our best in the finals and he wasn't saying that as they've been gone for 73 cost the Mets series auto. As we don't care for plan S basketball right now we just want as long as we're playing our best. As we're going into the playoffs and that's our only consider me only you were last year it meant something to them they. They wanna every night and tried to rip your heart out and you haven't seen that killer instinct this year from. All right and the blazes when Mike well I guess we have to sports report coming up here. With the score. It's not up on the screen yeah. Rates or report night you're welcome. He got the best in the business for us to know.
