Yeah what's up everybody it's dirt when I thank you for takes some time out to listen to be podcast of our show brought to you by less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. The lemon yeah. Okay. Okay. Yeah. This is dirt and spray gun super week. You buy Jersey Mike's open now at happy valley process and happy valley and in in the number of an arsenal but it's really. Hello this team. Fishing. This group so Durbin spray gun to an eighty room. Let's do this not allow larger despray detonated a fan. You know follow us on snapped pacers put a book or whatever adult chat and Stu Jackson at third straight on footer we will. Volume that we had somebody to yes or DM us last week we fold them back he said well guys in the like our slogan man that's that's that's our thing that's thing I Twitter where we're big social media butterflies and you follow us mainly following Iraq fact that's how we roll here and pro and how much news did you watch over the weekend. All I watched a ton of news how could you not did you stay in June did you tune it out did did he is soaked into an IE dove head of the headfirst and I know. I just firmly believe even if you. Completely disagree with the directions somebody might be going. You still owns you wanna be informed about it don't you don't wanna know what's happening there was a lot going on this weekend well the airport I mean radical fuel tax me you know the airport protests going crazy Minnesota social media and then I know some late in flew back gearing the protest. And it it was just insane like there's videos out there there was a guy that you approach from oversee anti trump crowd he's one guy got knocked out and soul era. I followed it I follow it all weekend and it I don't know how you don't do not have then nine I haven't sports obviously made it a lot easier to. Because there's not a minute this wasn't much for tries to watch this we can also feels a lot different and the fact of dig the kind of candidates lash president that he is or candidate he was. Even if you're left or right this is different than anything we've ever seen for sure so I will I would give him credit but it's a credit I like to give. There's an element of what he says and how he says and what he does. That does teaching of wanna follow it and see what's going on that are chairman I think a lot of stems from being in the spotlight and being on. Reality television I just don't know how you don't follow it yep it was Al is a rather entertaining not necessarily for the good way we kemba tenants or hear from overture to be a distraction from him for all the problems that are going on did you see stage deals hot today I did -- say steele's high take us out first world problem -- steals I'd take my name is putting him too long to get to the airport as she had a picture of a protest an airport in her first words were basically this is why it took me two hours. To get from the entryway to my gate. This is why I missed my flight Aubrey Huff also had one of a famed 2010 giants' war yes Aubrey Huff did not have a good week and on those media basically said why isn't anybody have and why isn't anybody at work and everybody quickly corrected me and said. You may sixteen million play a child's game because of labor union labor union and its Sunday to weekend but he most people that a full time jobs don't work on sun that day he fell flat on his face. On that when they we don't want to get to hear in the final hour of the shell didn't have minutes and there was a study released a clay importance really bad football city. Would tell you just how bad unless they jump it's what are poll question of the day. Coming up to the bottom of the hour moral victories are still a thing in Portland and their could potentially be going after a big man in the NBA. But tell you who that is and ask if you would like to pull the trigger on that deal. And then at some point I do wanna talk about symbol foods 'cause I wanna put together bracket the best suitable food's OK all this is a bracket and this needs to happen by the way I thought. I'd stupid me but I'm not signing day was next Wednesday national sunny days and 48 hours so maybe we do the food the food thing on like Thursday Friday or yeah I would do it the last two days of the week but Dennis are compiling a list. Reading about these things I do assert the final hour though that little suitable talk and one of the teams. That are involved at the Atlanta Falcons they literally. Came out of nowhere this season we gave his segment last week talking about the Vegas betting trends where. They started I believe in sixty to one odds nobody was laying any money on on and so Vegas is they are less trying it's an action on the falcons let's bump this thing up to a hundred to one odds to win the Super Bowl. And still very few people actually wanted to gamble and go out on a limb and say a hundred rely on the falcons can win the Super Bowl. But here they are an end you know we were talking about this before the show. They brought a vision point and they happen to be in the same division is them that this is almost a Carolina Panthers situation where. The Panthers going into last season Kelvin Benjamin went down in the pre season nobody saw their run common. All of a sudden ever sit net fifteen and one at the end of the regular season they beat the Seahawks a block the cardinals. And they were in the Super Bowl out of nowhere. And they took a step back this season an end that would be our question you can now jamming at 55305. The Atlanta Falcons in the run that there on this year is it a one off success front where they just struck golden and everything clicked for them another gonna lose Kyle Shanahan. Or is this the start of something that can be a meaningful run for that organizational if by meaningful run are we just categorizing it by NFC GB each of slash Super Bowl. Are we talking post season runs a post season Rosner and not necessarily has been NFC title game every year but making the playoffs and winning playoff games because I I go back. You go back and fully years to some of these teams animated in like the giants are good examples either may need it they either made the Super Bowl ring on it or they did make the postseason at all it was one of the other I remember the cardinals' Kurt Warner they made it and they kind of fell flat on their face for awhile there before they've got Iranians and got back to what they're at right now. The saints when they won the super Williams Peyton Manning they've always kind of been one of those fringe teams but they can never give back to that. And and I just I'm always curious how people know. Can you really tell what team's gonna be back here because we were in this position last season saying. A Denver with Manning could be a may be but that defense is so damn good in May not matter. And then with Carolina it was all stimulants that X amount of seasons now he's figured it out that defense is young OK Kelvin Benjamin back and Benjamin don't make them better and no no they're often struggled at times getting Kelvin Benjamin back into the flow things. They loss likeable guys to injury in Cam Newton didn't play well this season. And so I I think it's we got to pump the brakes sometimes and we just assume. That we found the next eighteen. And Seattle was a really good example the team that won it and then got right back there the next year which you don't see very up and they continue to be in that conversation for the most part it's not always a given that these teams that come out of nowhere are going to be the next up and coming team I just think we easily attach it to teams. They're younger the falcons are younger on defense have that kind of in his prime quarterback. Really good weapons Freeman Coleman Julio Jones except Iraq. And just assume they're gonna have this rain it doesn't work out that. Way yet that that is true and united quarterback has a lot to do it that is well that when you have a guy the people deem a franchise quarterback they just imagine you'll be their year in and year round and and that was also the situation Carolina last year an aunt and look I will say this about the Panthers. That they had a great season that nobody saw a common in May the run in the Super Bowl. But this year when you go look up and down their schedule they lost six games by three points or less the Panthers were really I am Claire Ann and I think that just tells you is what we love about the NFL that these situations console easily go the other way that the Panthers this year were six and ten. Six of those ten losses they were all losses six of those ten losses they won by a few more or less so. You flip that to just even being four you're looking at attendance six football team and how how different do we talk about the panther in the post season there in the post season and who knows what they do if they get a little healthy come playoff time so. That there's such a fine line there I think one thing that's interesting about both those organizations is not only are they playing in the same division but. We've also seen them on this stage to a certain point before that Atlanta granted this is their first Super Bowl run at this this group of players. They read and as NFC title game a number years ago who we've known Matt Ryan he's been on the stage he's been in the playoffs before. And the same thing goes or Cam Newton member Cam Newton had the year they won the division they went twelve and four they also lost the 49ers ironically to do why are around here in the divisional round and then it took him a year they kind of regrouped and and they got back to that point so. Some people are taxing and saying this is a fluke it's a one off but. But what makes it salukis used in an investment I don't understand like Beasley is is a great young pass rusher Matt Ryan seemingly has come into his own as a quarterback and has gotten rid of all the postseason problems that he had before. And Julio Jones from my money's the best wide receiver in the NFL that's pretty strong nucleus to have an. Also signed the comets in new who's paid off big for them they drowned Taylor gave real wide receiver that slot speedy guy and their DBs are all young. So you know they might be flew key both looking in the sense that we and expected. I just don't know how you look at the Siemens say I said to slash front pin there's and don't assume they're going to be back that's the difficult thing is. When you see what is a breakdown too I really do think embraced on your quarterback yeah 'cause as close as the can't there's a war goalie cam Newton's numbers. He was not that great this year is awful this year and so if he would I had a better season I think they win those games and their right back in the thick of it. Verses do you trust Matt Ryan has finally figured it out. Probably gonna win the MVP on Saturday. As he turned that corner or does he. Reversed back into the guy that chokes in big moments in can't leading game winning drive that's the difficult thing is that the quarterback has turned the corner. In this is for sure going to be long run we talk about the Seahawks we talk about the falcons. We talk about. In certain Dallas scratch me right center like they will be in the conversation. There's an element a fluke of I didn't expect this at all now. And as I have a hard time looking at this team and sing it they're not going to be in a conversation for next year no regard as they win or lose. I didn't luddite you know you go back to pre season I wouldn't have picked Atlanta to make the Super Bowl but knowing that the pieces that they hadn't place if you told me they were a hundred to one on in the pre season a little laughed action. And so what they're not the Cleveland Browns a does that make any sense they they were somewhere in the middle. That if everything clicked he beat Aaron that's feasible I can see them getting that point they were just a couple of years. Remove some from an NFC title game couples not to defend tax line. This is a good question asking about them as a team or somebody brings up do you think there will regressed offensively without Kyle Shanahan their next year. And that's a question you always have to ask is how how important is seats at our offense and what the next guy be able to pick up where he left off that's just something you don't know. Another one the Atlanta Falcons are the man can challenge we won't hear about them in three weeks. Out. No alas it was far more of a fluke and the falcons this year and I'd denigrate that that that the Panthers being fifteen and one and a dominant dominant they were was more of a fluke than what we've seen from Atlanta. Shanahan one is is going to be I think the most interesting things for Atlanta because they have so many young guys and in key positions that that's basically gonna boil down to develop make growth in. Maturity can they take that step and understand this is what it takes to be a contender year in year out. This Shani and one interesting for the fact of I don't know how many people really remember but last year. In 2015. There was a point when Roddy White was still falcon they basically were saying that how Shanahan was railroading the affair at Atlanta Falcons offense that he and he'd lost state. Roddy White wasn't a part of their offensive game plans anymore and he couldn't get need balls thrown his way and he was on now and again wasn't he was out of touch. And look what year does Korea and it clicks he figured out Roddy White clearly deteriorated. You get Mohamed to new in there you finding Taylor Gabriel yet go back got back rate. Tandem in Coleman in Freeman and now everything clicks for. An issue I'm a more tires Oxfam very worried Atlanta's not a fluke on those chips during places Shanahan. No fluke and yet Nancy Pelosi hired guns. This obviously imagining iron chip and don't make the post season now are all he's done he's done Indiana you really might be done the -- go 'cause San recent staters why do you feel do you think it's a fluke like do you tell we talk next year getting way ahead of over Busch Series in a conversation absolutely should be. They got a good they got a solid defense they got Matt Ryan a quarterback who seemingly has taken the next step as a pro. And anytime you got somebody like Julio Jones on the outside everybody's job's easier. I had it that that's it Dan Glenn I think is that is proven himself as a head coach in his league the other thing you have to do is evaluate what team is going to emerge next season. And will they be able to. Take the spot of anybody jerk you know I mean what gets up there every year take every guy who beat Atlanta in week one we all bought into it. And the giants. You look at Washington Philly did make the postseason. Is Detroit Kenny back what about the vikings who were eight Nate. There's a handful of teams the cardinals they gonna suck again will Palmer be back I mean there's a handful of teams you can look at that didn't make it or barely made it in. What are they gonna be able to do next year yet there's always teams that come out and earlier and this guy year it was. Atlanta hundred Alonso the pre season now here they are in Super Bowl week media day will be. A tomorrow night coming up at the bottom of the hour when the Ronnie trade scenario for the Portland trailblazers gauge your interest on Napa coming up next. A study was released that identified the best and worst football cities in America. And it claims Portland is the second worst football city out there. Do you agree or disagree 55305. That's next on Tenet of the fans. All of them. I. It's a good sign for the next story. It's funny Jesse about the news. Just curious been talked about anything political yet. The still like really sensitive topic for people my thinks. I guess it always it's always have trumped nine when every time politics since I was touching biggest win you know I just. I don't know how you ignoring this weekend I think we're at a lot of protests the next four years on this Garland and say that. Ollie at this. I mean I just say on executive order to becoming a light pretty soon about LG BT. Rights and all that stuff I I think it's gonna continue to grow and grow and get ready for the next round of protests folks it's not going anywhere but we will be an escape for you now over the next four years hopefully. From and hopefully we keep our jobs that bond. Coming up the bottom of the hour the blazers arrival on a big man on the trade market we'll tell you who what do you think. And I come and appear at 230 but we get these count emails sometimes about studies done. About fanned on some teams in numbers all that kind of stuff right so we got one today. There was a wallet Hud study done we got this scene off from the mosque while Iran study. You released of popular wallet hub fame of course Wallace that we don't know law habits of personal finance web site apparently OK Rio and they did a study. By looking at the 2017. Best and worst cities for football fans best and worst cities. A college football are pro fall football combine high school college NFL high school and c'mon man. Get frightened Khamis paper makers don't we don't that's that's campus agreed to shake we got the jesuit crusaders react Cleveland. Apart groups bill they did a Zinedine best and worst football cities in America. Portland. Didn't do so hot and it's that I went so Portland game and in this is large cities that they counted they came in a 192. Overall. Out of honor and 99 cities and it's our poll question of the day actor to spray on Twitter go ahead and vote. The question is simpler recent wanna study released claiming Portland is the second worst football city for fans is PD exceed that for the whole city yes or no. 66%. Said yes as your defining this by eight Fey and dumb I say no if you're defining it by a great football being played yeah we're probably the worse there here's the measure did they used okay they had four different metrics and they use number one was performance level of college football teams all levels of college football in this city. In in this city good job if Portland Gleason stated why the hell we even register rate a 156 on that one he has come 122 is average so we're 156. Since I think this is the least surprising news you've told the legs of is that minimum season ticket prices for college football games yet nipple still compete coats to Portland stage eight under 69 and ally of koehlke great college football stadium capacity. They played a soccer stadium 200 to a. Her question was the ducks of the beavers. Part of this are they not considered import. And that's I don't know that's a tough part engaged in 1919 if you trying Eugene and Corvallis and so Johnny majors it's only bargains and they're considered the couple's Omar didn't already know governor say if you're going by attendance and ticket prices or ticket sales to tease me. They know they're not included here's one idea is it Israel because the last magic and they used to weigh in on this they said college football fan engagement Lou in Portland ranked 222. To all look if you're if you're holding this facility a Portland State that's a 100% accurate. Who the hell goes to those games they're not even a good team right now. So basically if you basing it off Portland State that's a 100% accurate now I disagree with this notion if you could include organ organ state. May be some if you can mix in Washington even if you can mix it in. We were much better football city. I do think we love football like I need to be ratings when they come out for playoff games in the NFL and college it would big year were using surprisingly one of the main West Coast cities that ranks up there we love football. But if you're basing it off who's in your city. We're going awful Portland State yeah yeah of course we're gonna be at the bottom of the barrel future. You know it is just added I think that's the good stuff judgment of a study like this because I don't think Portland is a bad football city and they get and maybe we just live in a bubble because the the people that. Both in my personal life him my work life that I in Iraq with the football fans right amended the listeners that we engage with her obviously football fans the people that are in my personal life. Almost too good honor percent. There are are all football fans so. That the people that I engage with loved football and especially college football guiding duck fans of Bieber fans are extremely passionate right now especially right now I know duck fans at about your foreign aid but. Or is safe fans are jacked about the direction of the program duck fans are fired up probably tiger like. And we see it we see on Twitter we see if from listeners so to say that there's not engagement about college football on the city I think is just mistaken because you have to tie and. I think it's still the NFL I would argue that their are more backer borrowers from more different NFL teams in this city then. Just about anywhere I mean which you can if you put your mind to it you confine you aware what bush team doesn't have loved a bar here. Yeah how many different backer bars or hear a rap album there's multiple for some of the teams like I know there's there's multiple Steelers as malt O Packers I know is multiple 49ers lake. There's a ton of teams have a ton about others Cleveland Browns bars I think gas lines bars there's Eagles bars so it it's. I think the passion is there I just as a collective group you just don't see it because it's so fragmented but a collective you know. Yet there's not TD collective support one team if there an NFL team or a major college team in Portland it would be nice indeed if if you put Larry she think the ducks right if you put the ducks in just for argument sake just in the city of Portland we'd be way higher they were Portland university docs. Yeah nobody knew they needed a way higher but again your basin is south Portland State. That that's not. That's a CS football how many got loose and Panetta the new game. Serious question. I think I have no I don't I don't mind Portland State I don't care like I'm pat I know Tony kids a wind park Rosen Atlanta Portland State is great and wedges I have been on Wednesday and I've never been no one in my life and I. Watched Alou I don't know why but some little known facts I was the sideline reporter for vikings football per season he could say is that when they are really good. They were OK back in the day they were really good. Not way back in the game like this past season I watched for whatever reason I was like 10 seconds of the eastern Washington game. There were maybe twenty people on that enthusiast and I Diaz it's a it's a tough judge had that there's no doubt that's how we're being judged though somebody said as there's a browns bars at the back German commitment and inside but believe so they put a little portable TV in their from Brown's new stimulus just over news Sunday and open it remember I think it's. Crowns a skybox over on the east side. The skyboxes around I don't think so well I've watched many Sunday at sky box that is not right is husband is a huge huge Brown's trainer wife's cousin's husband's nephew he's brother twice now moved. I don't know my wife husband I just know the old wooden chicken is a niner fan and I don't I've been a sandbox many a time that's that's in my neck of the woods and that's not a browns are looking up EST talk OK we will somebody just asking is there jaguars bar I don't think there's a jaguar public there's jaguars Lauren Jackson don't think so he's weather could be the London judge won't make much longer they have suing pulls a new stadium that does LA need to know about their fans' support they would rather be swimming and actually watching the game out there is a Portland browns backers okay I'm curious if this is not what I. OK okay you do is Google something dirty you don't Anna K that's an SF. W now that is a position I candidates go head close that tab that nice are right now maybe to keep puzzle work after all is how does that even work. A couple of quick loans on your defense accents and is that I can see why Portland. The second worst football city between dot these two young fans everyone I know hates talking football plus sending to. Be forced to watch Seattle every weekend and there's better games on that socks okay I found it and I don't know of this is still current because it says 2011. The blitz. On SE eleventh that's just the browns bar Cleveland Browns backer bar about that. I'm Mike your wrong on that but that's of this website is saying they said Portland actually the entire state is football war. Mood and just I disagree here is my problem Portland should have the Seahawks but we had. Really rich people screwed up for us and I just like this is not a fair thing to put on our city I think we love football we used up what. Peace a revisionist history are you referring to when he started about. When Louis Seahawks can ever going to be important. We would add a stadium. This gives Google it there's stories out there's writer who lives in Arizona he's made exist real you know serious always should add Lindsay I got they would have built the stadium we have it would have built the stadium. Yeah that's always been that he's the minute on this would have Major League Baseball neat yeah weren't as a mariners and the scene what is built the stadium. Yeah they had an opportunity it's not quite what you think if you Google it you'll notice it. We've we've heard from higher ups that it was almost say it was almost it was basically are saying yeah we're good will pass and CLA Campbell take them. But it thank you so many city NN tablets is also loaded with Ohio State bars during the rolls bowl a couple of years back. How about that apparently has a whole locally and wild thing you know how he always managers Upton is an Ohio guy. That's the way it works folks as a lot of study came out. And ranked four in the second worst football city for fans in America we've always talked about the south here and I don't know I have to ask boss man about this do we have a thing on our website swagger they gives packer bar listings. That's like boss man has brought this up before and I can't remember if you said yes or no wounds we've tried to assemble it and do it we never really had somebody grab it by the horns and in follow it through all the way that would be a good thing to do down just click I got tabs is backer Barkley to team in zone where the bar is absent a really easy there's a ton of them out there there's a there is football's important matter what is study says. He about the city Paula and I speak at Portland the blazers not sent a moral victory last night and another one of the column a moral victories on the season we'll talk about the game also a trade scenario has been floated out. We'll gauge your interest. Its inspiration from my. Chart topping hit. I like bacon and football. I'd like bacon and football's. Think they're still selling tracks on iTunes somewhere and I believe sex and candy might be more popular than they can and football. In terms of a tandem you'd want okay. And it's tough to disagree with the problem they're both good attendance can you have sex with bacon because if you stood and watched football. Does that work. Re going Tuukka stands on that one year trying to get all three facets of our life and to try and rescue hard on the out again pastrami is the finest of the geared methods you'd give. Sick candy. I ever seek a bacon. No yet kids eat too much can you get a stellar case act any bacon after bacon after a fight like a Snickers bar which I don't very often but if I eat a Snickers I won't he candy for a couple weeks. I can eat bacon twice a week I easy ninety bacon every day. And you NB men that it may not like bacon same with sex doesn't like bacon who doesn't want sexist and valid points same with football. Looks like you're some wins and easy and normal thank you thank you I appreciate and I got to produce section candies. Only one for two men sometimes he got about a thousand payable taxable foods and some Super Bowl drinks come and appear. I and ten minutes when he your suggestions on those to close out the show but to the blazers played last had to play Golden State without staff curry they felt. 113 111 was the final score Evan Turner who did have a good ballgame I'll give map. Any wide open shot at the buzzer to win and he missed that and they lose 13 team on eleven but some fans are still claiming. A moral victory after last night's game the blazers are seven games below 500. Yeah I don't know where the moral victory is never an easy I did stuff scurried in playing on the back to back and I don't Carol good the warriors are you lost. You came back from two when he grade that was impressive came back from ten in the fourth straight that's impressive. Did you capitalize. No. Okay all right great are. So now we're selling into low 500 counsels be stoked about a good performance. Or at home. That's where are zulus to Charlotte tomorrow they add them like that it's everybody says nab the blazers lose less than once your team on eleven I do wanna talk about a trade scenario though that's been thrown announce the magic right now. Are that they're a young team they signed a biz Mac be humble in the offseason as the big man. Victor early depots a young player sabonis the youngsters only twenty years olds they dancing and pieces. One other piece is though it sounds like they're gonna be looking to move. Is surge a block captains 27 years old is average and now let's see fifteen points seven boards per game. She and 48% from the floor and a list of teams that could be potential suitors for Serge Ibaka has been released. One of those teams. The Portland trailblazers yeah a lot of people are contacting for Serge Ibaka by the way should be noted it's not just serves as available Orlando's in full rebuild mode yes they are it's not going very well there the team that if you lose two moment TT. Arab League bad lies yes and so basically I read a report that said every player on the magic including airing Gordon. Is available for the right price of Vucevic is available which it which is a lot more adjusting to meet in Serge Ibaka Lilly. And it's has more range six NAFTA and that's the last thing we need dismembered seven footer that she's three pointers you know entry Meyers Leonard for surgeons are. Jimmy he's a better rebounder I'll give that much but I Carrey's yes or the magic are nineteen and thirty in his final outing is below 500 and this spring mentioned therein therein a full rebuild so. Some other players are available such as throwing up their 55305 wood a surge of pocket do for you if anything is a blazer fan if they're able to pull move like that on what depends. If you give up I mean which are available to give up that's I think that we need to take in account. And I'm sure Richmond or you know Freeman somebody's gonna write an article about this of like what's available to actually move. Our pleases edged might even an article like what players can move now vs what players have to wait to a certain standpoint. To me know if you can get a Serge Ibaka for this team it depends on what's your overall what your goal. Is it to make the post season this year and then say Serge Ibaka is going to be huge cog for your team next year yeah. I mean if that's it acting yes go make that deal in a heartbeat if you get rid of Meyers Leonard. And at Tim quarter men are draft pick for surgeon vodka. OK I don't think it does much for your team you may get opposing your still gonna get swept. But if they have a plan long term. And you can have a surge come off the bench and beat up perimeter threat because he's different than Myers he's more confident he plays better defense in my opinion. And I think he's got the ability to fit in a little better knowing he's a veteran and understands what his role can be at times. Oh ensure then that's a long term play for the next 23 years great do it but if it's just to make the post season this year you know thinks a pass yet. And dominated by the accent is an illegal still plays firm Orlando on these analyses in Oklahoma City this year and and I think that that would be. That would be my question would be beat in terms of what you got to give up to get a player like Serge Ibaka I think which eventually do a lot more for me is a blazer fan but. But this sub zone Yahoo! I don't know Hamid you'll know who has Sonya is he's a second year player. Who's got a tie on a potential. Think he better Rudy Gay are Rudy Fernandez better Rudy Fernandez a better Rudy Fernandez and let you know it's is it this is got a mile across Kansas and he said 157 sounds and other soft power forward just with Scott seems to liken it ought I don't know Serge Ibaka close because he's never play for the blazers obviously but I remember the time you know in blazes and Oklahoma City step match ups all the time it was kind of a rivalry. Between him and LaMarcus and I did. I think the last thing that you need is another finessed kind of big guy I think the even it if anything you're gonna go out make a movie should be a young guy. That can be that stall or in the middle that can be a defense of presents for you and not say that Serge Ibaka wouldn't be an improvement over what you already have these averaging seven boards so I can joke about another seven footer. That shooting three pointers like Myers Larry Meyers Leonard has what averaging three boards a game so there's an improvement vary is Mormon inside player. But I just I think the prototypical center is the way to go and and end if you're gonna give up a lot to go get a surge of Barca. And a slightly improves you this year to me it's not worth all they're not gonna. Give up a lot the search apocalypse surge barking and a demand on the open market San Antonio is like an item San Antonio and and got a time pieces that they wanna give up so. I think you can get him for the right price it's it's just about. I don't think Neil OJ. Trying to put this best way can't idling yellow she's making a deal simply eating its in the post season this year. To satisfy some eat testicle I have to be right in say we had a playoff roster. I thinks I think Neil she's really. Taken as personal with the whole roster in spending of salary cap. Think the moves he makes going forward are going to be indicative of what he wants to do long term app not the short term yeah. Because I think you know pollen at this point whether you you work firmer ninety's pretty given to fans even. At this point. There might be something building in pollen set of eight this guy's stern show that may be doesn't know how to build a championship team there's always a clock with Paul Allen. And adding Neil oh she is well aware of that I think he knew that were took the gig he obviously is a huge ego. But I don't think the moves he makes are indicative of winning just right now I think it's. An idea of what's to maybe calm in the in the summertime even that means getting surged. Who I believe what was missing is a free agent if that's truly is down maybe it means you don't keep Serge Ibaka and he walks will guess what you got rid of a couple guys. You free up some cap space and they get open roster spot. That's your Rihanna meant that that issue what do you think Serge Ibaka on the trade market Orlando apparently trying to shed a bunch of salary. Heading into the trade deadline the blazers are linked with Orlando and talks with them what would you make that move. 5530 final read some your thoughts also close out the show talk considerable food listener wants us to put together a bracket. And the best Super Bowl foods so when it comes to Super Bowl Sunday. What is a must go to on your meal item will do that next close up show on 1080 the fan tells. You hate to be the person in Iraq shaggy that I have to was a main. Themes and well played I didn't think coming up top of the hour. I do and seven we had Tex and I yet that made you want to get into later in the week is asked a question with a decimal food to put together bracket for Thursday and Friday. And that he won desperate and upbeat ten steals breathalyzer bag we have not discussed that yet yet it's like he touched the bag it turns a certain tell her what she knows you're drunk yet does if you're John which I mean chips are great drunk food dvd an entire bag of those things I mean I have several times right. Not a great what a great idea for toes Tito's that's that's honestly like on a life changing move I think police as an estate because they ask him like is this a valid way to tester some thing and send I think the police response was. If your drunken opt out to touch had a bag of chips to know if you're drunk you probably shouldn't be drug that don't drive anyway no matter what color that bag turns out not drive the real scenario again when there is little smoky I will get to little smoking is those are a must have at any football party low little lean years little smokey is brewed and barbecue sauce on the stove. I'm about it begins to picks. You put about one time go in the Brack how how the largest the bracket going to be easy NSA our legal one just Maine on trays like the one and he -- peaceable means or do we incorporate our he's got most popular the snack items I think. Well brackets I think we'll if needed to do from Russia's Maxwell have on trays will have maybe maybe suites. We can have we can afford it from bracket of four I don't mean this is going on trays snacks and not only know we need that many I think you guys are over selling this do you honestly have all these different things you're Super Bowl parties yeah well every year you makes it up and add everything incorporated tomorrow announced just a couple party beer. Chicken wings nachos is not just really chilly. The cocktail Weiner is sometimes include the we can easily do sixteen we don't need to do 34 bracket yeah. What's economy will have more haven't segmented in the brackets only solution team bracket in the you can have like four is you're on tray yeah. You're snacks. Sweet sort of thing we got a call different regions Smart Car like really good names from the Mike told her racket expert at the room. Britain William refrigerator Perry Brack F for the fat entrees yes Clinton. Good to guess how some homework this week we do and and we got some good for you guys that have home I think we conclude go home work on this tonight you haven't done homework on the forget about this guy probably will until it does is my son all start thinking about little smoky mountains go buy some little smoke he's not eat them. So that was supposed to as I'm eating a whole bag a little smoke he's think to myself what was out of a little smoke is we talk on a more Lisa and so malicious are now. Are you awaiting what he does a rumbles on if I factor of five were talking about Serge Ibaka as a blazer what do you think. And let's rates that's here at Santa excited 55305. Why wouldn't you go to Serge Ibaka biggest weakness is defense surged gives three blocks in game along with seven borders from Matt's post. Now the one from. That's true man that's true he's gonna come out save the season folks. Let's see I don't they O Shea gets that trade or free agent acquisition and moves the needle just isn't gonna happen in Portland you have to sit the team down and say just lose guys I know it sucks but if you won I won a championship. We need to acquire multiple top five pick he can't do that. I I don't think he has it in him I think I honestly believe this last you're going into it. Everybody pointed out I think he really thought that team he was gonna bring in some guys on the cheap the Al Farouk I mean news. He was gonna symbol that roster to try to imagine dame with age he was gonna hold CG develops slowly but surely at some point during that season. And I think it just popped they clicked teams overlook dumb. They took advantage of injuries bone there in the sector round I really think it changed everything and how he viewed his time line. Because they over achieve by so much vs last year that he brought in some of those guys he put that roster again as saying hey somebody's a restricted. We can move in another direction if they don't give us the production. And we can continue to sell Portland as this next young destination. Verse is going in the summer he had the solomons were legit Western Conference final team. So I think it changed everything I disrupted his whole plan that they won. Verses sucking needing a good pick somebody said enough potential give me somebody solve takes Serge Ibaka and and when you compared somebody in grief Fernandez this it would set the bar at the floor well nice a batter batter Rudy Fernandez by by the way points for games do not reflect very well we got them I would say you guys would gladly purity it yeah. Mario has Sonya is a regarded as one of the SS sounds like a tequila company pulls Sonia and a sense does India know he's he's got good size he's 680s athletic he's quake he can shoot. I'm like you like it number one what about Greg Monroe I keep reading he isn't happy as a years left parliament is number two choice in my crazy. I think it's pretty clear they need they need a dynamic for. And they need it. I'm fine with I think what plum he's been giving him of late they're not it's going to be hard to replace. What he's willing to do. Only said agrees at a great charging even last that is resilient dynamic for you please the five exactly what they need is a dynamic for so who is that. That's the struggle. Because I've I've eager Aldridge. Somebody you can throw the ball to below the free throw line who can get his own shot with a shot clock running down. They don't have anybody like that no but says Serge Ibaka is not that player dizzy and back to the basket game no back to Baskin knows and I don't carry just a few base up you know they face up from fifteen feet other shoot and then like drive into it that way. Oh or if it's a back to the basket died but somebody. Who they can balance the floor whiff when they throw it down the defense has to respect and sag a little bits of the teaches stay out. On CJ in day in the hole. And I was at the game on Friday luncheon much Memphis. Just an off of Gasol. Is any amaze I just couldn't Marcus salty I just so fun like he did you scores so many different ways he's so creative. You'll see a sag off you know had an eighteen footer a knock down a three it's like man I can we get a guy like to have your senior Marcus all continue to. We're going to a marquee and Marcus all young like he was kind of a dumpster was at least a jobs to do what I guess he got he's got bird legs he was really jumps or zone like when he was coming up through the ranks can finally over 301 point ahead old really yeah relentlessly youngster like we did go good Spanish national teams when he was young. That guy's got a temples he's got the body way do you witness does that tractor trailer mammal and new Lucchino and show IndyCar announced he looked small. He just hit a certain point any weight kind of has dropped like some guys have that where the baby fat eventually goes away when is that supposed to head I'm still waiting let me for some guys that it does and based on your lifestyle so. Booze and eat too badly some sorry. I'm a big fan of pickles and it is a market solar cycles middle aged guys it's way too much troubles at the YMCA for just the right lady just like he doesn't fit I mean obviously seven flood silly you know he's got the got such a stun gun that. Deep down I am implant. The BS and are still people to play with a back to the basket in the NBA not many if you many. I aegs it's tough and I'm not disagreeing we swagger is again more needs than just like a an athletic four. I think there's I think there's some holes on this team. Obama player's gonna solve your problem and Serge Ibaka is knocked in a hunger to right player goes along way in solving it but it but who let finding is the right players and how waiting to give up to get that rally the tricky Florida knows the tricky part is that GM now I don't I don't get paid what he's paid and that's the problem I'm not saying it's easy I know I'm Zain and just to make a deal to make a deal and then -- guys out in this. We've been through that over and over and over. It is in Portland. And so. I'd rather now hold card she died at least you know which have been then. Wait for. Put together the right sort of saying I don't know what's wrong would go into the draft and hoping you hit on a big there this is supposed to be deep draft is up against two players draft. So if you can get a decent pick yes they probably won't. Just hope the hit on a young player you have to pay quite as much for any of the recruited to come to your city and end a one year left an ideal thing scares me. You don't insurgent bombing you give you say give up and Allen Crabbe and somebody Els for interest for Brad search your pocket to bounce in the off season. I'll tweet out this pick journalism more seriously bow sir it's more scare you Simon to a four year eighty million dollar deal again. You're stuff. We dug around the block a Barca. Say Holland do not sign a bill for that evaluates scarier than him walking I think that if you trade your spiritual options yet one though because if you trade him you're opening a roster spot eventually. And you get rid of him. Don't Kimmel for your eighty million dollar deal. Free tend to be a blazer fan right now hi. I get us. They get in our moral victory tomorrow. There's some jealousy is big German that we are after the show okay after this break on Twitter if you missed any of the show today let's truck tires podcasts 1080 defend our commissary confided that third sprang onto her.
