Just talked about how great was to get the second round pick. And then at the very end they're like oh yeah and opera gust. Yet realist in 67 to 43.

Paper so they're going almost like by themselves do we know if the US is litigant I EST for groups. Clearly to go to they have not I prefer my group's tapered. As opposed to stacked OK listen now let's get to go on here it is time now for the hot cited five. Odd topics and opinions or we've already own pocket and there. It's time for the odd hybrid club smoke pot yeah I'm private five. Guys have been so it's good news about hugged my reply to replies again soon on 1080 boats made. It's. Number of slot and a bus stop. Some of the NFL news early and I'm just gonna package it as wide receiver in Israel has really kind of a wide receivers here. How Shawn Jeffrey as shows in the Eagles he chose them over the colts vikings and their going back to bears one year fourteen million. The Eagles also get Torrey Smith for three years DeSean Jackson goes to Tampa Bay two year deal there. And the rams never robber was five years 39 million he'll get. Fifteen main guaranteed in the end Kenny Britt. Four year deal with the brown is here. Graham as a receiver just think you're lucky stars when they overpay for wide receivers that Shawn Jackson deal. It's kind of nice that you certain about some of the best combos in the NFL star Jackson and Mike Williams. It's a bad little 12 punch offensive line news the browns signed angles guard Kevin Z blurs I learned. Five years sixteen million he chooses Cleveland over New Orleans the Broncos have upgraded their offensive line signing former cowboy Ronald leery. When he main guaranteed Riley reef goes from the lions to the vikings and the Seahawks signed Deluca joke go. On a one year deal eight million. Cleveland Browns spent a hundred million dollars and Hillary their opposite wind this stuff to fill it out with the right tackle. But pro football focus has every one of their offensive linemen now minus the right tackle we don't know graded out right around 85 room. They give one of the best stuff with the Clinton before. Cleveland investing in big boys that are. Rams bolster their offensive line signing singles free agent Andrew Whitworth to the Bengals lose two guys. Fifteen million he'll get for the first year all right packed so commissioner Larry Scott gets an extension. Through 2022. His contract was going to expire next year under head of the board says pac twelve has been transformed. By expansion innovation and excellence in Larry's seven years and they believe in his bold vision. Even so the bold vision and I think he's got a pretty good job but I think the pac twelve network is good. Really his big selling point became men's I think Scott has been a good job but that has been a real blemish on his resonate. Back it's embarrassing that the media hotel where would stay down in Las Vegas doesn't even carry the pac twelve network right now to your state at the hotel. That the pac twelve is providing you can't see any of the games or tournament. Embarrassed. Get rid of the New York, New York. Ali I don't like to your career and he. Here's a shooting new enlisted in many years given that we stay there for the the Vegas is Vegas summer league. And they put us up there. And there's shootings at its highest ever really consider it wasn't me who does that mean I don't. The blazers have rescheduled the Minnesota rain down they're gonna play Monday August 3 and it's the same evening news them. Incidentally final. And both teams played at previous Saturday. And both teams are on the road that Tuesday's and they did have two days off so. You squeeze that game in the blazers host the sixers tonight and at the turner played you tougher back to back that we face it. That even. Excellent music and it having not played it takes does busy what your big system. Number two number two it's. Yeah fifteen yards number are really fifty yards for us it's. Either I mean him I didn't fire her right there any other yellow flag I think besides the Delhi. What number are we on on ES in the Q let's get some scores and he mentioned. Kansas got beat today by TCU. The big thing this will cost them the number one overall seed who they should still end up with a number one seeded that your meanwhile Villanova won by 41 snap. Lot of people think that that is now you're. Number one overall C four again eighty Arizona State 57. It was close and half pled out or get outscored by twenty in the second. And then. Cal just beat Utah so for a new play cal tomorrow. It's how lucky to get by the state that was supposed to. Do a good today and I think the last time they played out there thank you have when they played Stanford cal back to back in both those close games but. Portage showed even elevate when they turn it on in the second half forty and is just. Six Kansas didn't do that also gives me a little in the ACC quarter's 8177. I was really became okay. Number one premise and anything major in my case. And we're hoping so. There's just USC UCLA tonight so many. Things today so many things things and stuff stuff and things. From Gaza other treated from the Texans to the browns great hands and he is also traded along with date 20182. Round pick. This this and this is why their say it that they you'll laugh you'll love reading about. Let's do this next segment. We'll tell you why they made that trade libel team's day to why it makes sense of both teams in our next segment it's unprecedented but I just know that that happened we have not seen something like this. I felt I think if the patriots get tough free agent cornerback Stephon Gilmore five years 65 million given forty million guaranteed. The jags get two guys they get cardinals defensive income latest Campbell four year sixty million. Thirty million guaranteed to get him over Denver and the jags also that cornerback. Eight. 67000026. Main guaranteed. There's a rumor that the patriots are considering now dealing Malcolm Butler of the corner to the saints. For Brandon cooks meanwhile Jay Cutler has been released by the bears. Mike Glenn and signs with the bears three years 45 million for the board nineteen million guaranteed day severely outbid the jets in the bills for his services. The niners get linebacker Malcolm Smith he's the former us seahawk who was Super Bowl MVP. Plated the raiders as well he goes to the niners are five years 26 and a half million. A little bit of kicker shuffling if you will. Steven Hirsh get to the bills this and John Ryan who's the punter had the tweet of the day at how skates and it's been an honor to hold your balls for the last two years Peter great unless you play us that I hope you suck. That was the tweet of the day Russell welcome to the chargers. And Tom that they get to the cardinals. The Seahawks are sniffing around a running back their GNU take a look at Jamaal Charles the tedious Murray and Eddie lacy among others. Those are the those are the main ones. And then hold all the Smith. Who's trying to get reinstate did you see that's the end was in the car. When his girlfriend drunk ran into a police car. Sooner or technically he didn't do anything wrong he was. Legacy yup hopper public intoxication. I'm sure that's gonna look really good when you're trying to apply for reinstatement of the commissioner. Now I wasn't the one that was driving but I was drunk off my ass when my girlfriend was drunk and ran into a police car that idiot cannot while slow got to drown. He's got a lot of problems substance abuse. And then now the Redskins did end up firing their GM today in their blaming it on alcohol some are saying that he has not had an alcohol problem it's just an ego battle but. That's a thorough blaming to get him out the door. That's not cited five OK why did the bears take Tom Brock cost Wyler invited the Texas trade brought us out and the second to the bit to the browns that's it bears you sit there and then browns. That trade mobile will cover that are coming up next and there is also perhaps some news on Tony Romo by fourteen on the fan. And they need okay all right Brad Gus Tyler goes to the grounds today. Surprising news and some may look at it on the surface and go home again the browns ability to invade makes total sense for both sides on the floor is yours. So what basically happened here is the Texans couldn't find someone to take rock house did the contract many people thought was untreatable myself included. He cared to tag of over sixteen million dollars and he was the worst starting quarterback in the league last year. But basically what happened is this Cleveland had a hundred million dollars to spend. And they convinced Houston to deal brought us weather and give up a second round pick. So basically you had was an NBA type situation where one team needed to dump salary and good team had a space to absorb the contract. Cleveland couldn't spend a hundred million dollars in free agency is a basic what they're doing is saying great. Will by year's second round pick for sixteen million bucks that's what they did. And now Cleveland is going to look in either cut brought cost Wyler in just take the sixteen million dollar hit which they can absorb this year and next you'll be fine. And then spend that second round pick either on a player or it sounds like they wanna package of the twelve this year. And this extra second round pick to go after Jimmy drop below from New England. Or their boarded try to deal brought cost whether or get another draft pick the F 22 picks in the next two drafts they are going analytics they want graphics. And what would happen is. Whatever. Whoever traded for Brock us whether or whatever contract the he would agree with Cleveland would pay the difference between that and the sixteen million dollar salary. So Sony wants to give up may be a fifth or sixth Byrd Brock our Weiler bigger probably give it three or four million dollars Cleveland would pay the difference. And they would get another draft pick back and returned so that's the reason why this ended up working out of for Houston. They still have some dead cat money because they still have to spread out all the guaranteed money from his first two years in Houston. But this saves them about ten million dollars against the cap this year and then next year they're completely off the books of him. People think that ten million is now going to be spent going after Tony Romo. Which they probably didn't have the money to sign him before this this is why it actually makes sense. For both teams for both Cleveland and for used. Yeah more so for Cleveland I mean Houston kind of had to do it yet any kind of take your lumps type of deal they're happy to have someone. Take that contract but at the same time they have to give up the second I mean it was they're all they've bought their way out of a bad decision I am with the sector around they righted a wrong it was their fault of debt that they signed also under that deal they tried it. And it didn't work but the browns are really Smart. For taking on that contract because as you said they can't spend a hundred million in in the agency in the stockpile picks of the browns now have. Eleven picks in this strapped in eleven picks in the next at seven of those are firsts or seconds. And now comes the Jimmy drop looking to win the was asking for too once and people were balking at that you were gonna pay it. But with the twelfth overall tech and then maybe now this extra seconds. Is that twelve and one of these twos in this year or next year's draft is that enough to get Rob Lowe out of New England because if it does. All of a sudden Cleveland has put together one of the best off with the winds and phone call them they get the quarterback they wanted Jimmy drop below. And they still have a ton of cap space and a ton of draft picks. Dare I say they Cleveland seems to have and a coach that people are high art in hue Jackson. We actually he has kind of a pretty good plan going forward that a lot of people there excited about this'll analytics thing. Well that's the money ball guys yeah it's Paul be the best their ideas of baseball guys with blue jays. And now he's include remember me was laughing about the Brown's hiring him because he's not a football days of baseball guy. So remains to be seen if he can turn his assets that he's acquired in two actually good players but. There's so many picks in there are so many good players particularly I think defensively it's easier to find. It's it's less of a guessing game on defense. And in the draft I mean like it's like and the guy to play guy can play. Right doesn't it tell me that miles Garrett can't play is no bus factor that a guy's gonna be good it is just a matter of how good how could hurt. But. So I ice I tend to think even though it's the browns. And the browns are so browns he and there's no guarantee because they've had pick after pick after taken screwed it up ice I I still tend to think that. Even the browns. Can't screw this up now they can they can and not take advantage of it to its fullest. Because. Of the DB Destin dang or they don't have certainly the best dumb talent and Irish or whatever but I think on the surface. They can't F this up they're gonna be better they they're they're going to be better system matter of how much better they're going to get like do they really hit a home run with this and if they do get a home run. You're gonna be in you're gonna be in the hunt. And Abby young talented in two years TE in two years and you're still gonna continue to have salary cap space he's been a hundred million dollars and our younger optics minding your still gonna have a ton of space now do you have faith in my guide I think that. Which can be hard industry that was so many techs but it's a browns on my crazy I. I am buying a little bit what Cleveland's got going on I think you have a very good defensive coordinator I think hue Jackson is a really Smart bright guy and you've got a good offensive line to help out whatever quarterback you get and you just haven't asked on a picks. It's we it's it's still. A long way off from being a a good team. But Cleveland last year was competitive in a lot of games in Mikey said they've already short on the offensive line you lose today it couldn't. And Joseph Thomas is still there be pointed in the right direction in Cleveland I got to find a quarterback in the got a draft well on defense and they have a ton it takes to do that and how far does that instill a lot of money to spend if they want to short the defense in free agency. And in you know what a lot of the big name guys are off the board in free agency but. That doesn't mean you can't be Smart and goes sign quality guys on teen friendly deals two Shura the defense. While you wait for your young players develop when you look at eleven picks. So 22 picks overall in the next two drafts if you find. Let's say of those twenty picks you find six impact players. Out of those twenty picks. And by the way you should be able to find six impact players and you know you look at kind of what this roster is it's exciting over the next couple years dare I say when you look around the league you look at the quote unquote bad teams. I like the future of Cleveland right now more than I do let's say a team like Washington. Who watched me the playoffs two years ago last year had like what the number four offense in the news in the NFL. But if you're asking me to buy five year futures all picked Cleveland right now over I will Washington look at you. I love that. Well now wait till next year and I'll back on what Cleveland is doing good. Then there's an undetermined as some. At least there is it's like when the when Houston was going to bear hunting down in in baseball when they were when they were being batter Philadelphia. At least what teams like that. The sixers I mean the NBA in a note was a different sports but those are the two that popped into my mind at least there was a vision. As opposed Riddick a lot of times when you look at teams like the bills do this the Redskins do this. It just there's no rhyme or reason to what you're doing in. You just don't crap against the wall and hope it sticks although the browns have pitted quite a few times I know but this is a new crew at least right now with this crew there appears to be a vision any clear have to get better. When you are bad franchise that's really all you can ask for as a fan is to say. Tell you what you're gonna do within stick to the plant it appears that Cleveland is doing that Saddam. Chester called an historic deal it's a deal that literally seen in the NFL before. Is it it's as you mentioned it's kind of like an MBA to it's it's more business if yes. So it shocked everyone however did you see that there was a guy and read it that called it her whole thing a week ago. Really yet there was a guy who who post on read it in the don't know who he is yet I'm sure he'll he'll. Come out and gloat but. It says could the browns trade for Brock us rather and he says hear me out. I think this is a very intriguing scenario the Texans have and also other problem they know he's not a guy. And they have to deal with his ridiculously bad contract is cap number is nineteen million Oz although I guarantee which hinders the Texans. Chances of signing Tony Romo. The browns have all the cab stays in the world they're obviously trying to load up on picks to the Texans not send us Wyler and a third to the browns for an additional seventh. In Brock wins a playoff game if Brooklyn's a playoff game or something like that. This seems like a good deal for both sides of the browns get a nice pick any guide to compete for the starting job not that party is wrong about that it it'd be doesn't. I. That's kind of let you nailed it do you know it and when this came down the collective world all wet wipes because these moves don't. Happen in football again Cleveland put themselves in position to do. I say hire the read it guy the fact that it put him in your front on both that guy was Smart all right coming up next pave the trailblazers. Is this fool's gold. Or are they peaking and what is with chasing quick ripping his pants we need the story what. And it's where the pants with a good pants been sown. Is he ditching the pants and withdrew the trash at that point. A blazer top would Jason quick CSN next on the sand here's my. I'm revising consider. God Kennedy bill. Arena type place here that. The scene unfold. Tonight. Dynamite job I've had the best business tonight. Women tendency to put people sleep and so on top of the other sports stocks are hot Cleveland Browns tot yeah. That's way too much brownstone for one maybe the ice still needed a Philippine media jump on the bandwagon right now for Cleveland well if you do you better do right now actually. I can't commit to that because. You week if you do it any any time after now I mean they've they've got appointed the much in the resurrection. It's. Well this man Jason quick CSN covers the Portland trailblazers and he joins us every Thursday at 530 he split his pants in the nine in Oklahoma City and we'll all the story that's what people really want to know what happens. Clearly America. I hear I got talent like pregame shoot me every time I. Do my little bit on TV I have my notebook and confront me on the court antics need to look down and refer to note strengthening. And so I got ballot might hit and Manny bit down to pick him up and I mean there was a loud sound ever covered by. Kind of open I didn't let them somewhat to my producer Peter so much I'd like Peter I think that it but I can't. And he went back and look in his eyes got really big. The bonus. There's two bonuses of this situation. One. In Oklahoma city's hotel like they that is. Directly across the street from the arena so. There was an easy fit excited to grab a jacket. Government but then. Went to the hotel and changed. The other good thing is. Is 80% of the time I go commando. I didn't. Even realize it I it was learned under. And so that was really lucky. That was lucky holy crap what happens if yeah it's either amusing little mood right. It is what is what happened to the gold gloves and it was issued script I mean it would you have Assad on Twitter videos that's that's a day when no women you go commando in suit. I it depends like how it might suit. The material. Interest in and out of the literally sent down. Yeah at the thick and thin layer Gabbert dean then you got to have a little extra protection. Bread but if wow so what did you do to canceling. I don't dominant figure and a Taylor and so you knowledge is eligible. And kind of that's kind of embarrassing taint on him. They look good ideas. Yet to be honest with the greatest like it it's like when you bloody knee you're never certain if you contrast that again all of you can ever trust those prints. And their daughter and our office. The funny thing is to them was in late two right now among young mom helped Gerri time exercising more and I would feel pretty good about like so. Until that happens. Finally as being did you wait he could have been an awkward lunge I mean now you can it happen and have since he got and I. Well. Split pants or not he's got pants that are sewn up tonight. Actually we feel good about the gas being covered in a you'll see is asked tonight what are what about what would have happened if you had teachers continue like the hotel wasn't a crisis should quote you've done. I think you ought area. I've thought about this I think I would have gone up to like it seemed store and it ought like it hundreds lectures and then and I'm wrapped around my waist. Johnson lets us aid is did you go to the blaze using get like appeared to they have like an extra pair like game shorts that you could. A lot of they just caught up do. That would have been the best so look words. You have. Wouldn't really I think her serve order handled it. Would you say. I think torture what do Campbell yeah we never would normally you wearing a suit and then a hooded sweatshirt tapper back or at least that's inconspicuous. Hipster master of disguise Jason quick bite well. And her kitchen is certainly flourish there's no doubt about that this guy. He's fine he's got everybody fired up easing gazes high energy. Is that sustainable or is this really an x.s and those things it's really given team's problems or is it more of an energy energy thing with him. I think it's it's a talent thing. I think I mean this guy he's big he's coordinated huge Smart. These very very savvy. And you're right he's made. He's made this seat in front again I think she's. Rejuvenated the ten base you know. I think as we talked every week on on this show. It was really becoming kind of a downturn in Allen that was a tough team to watch and now they've got that element of the unknown in. You never know what he's gonna do he's got a little bit opposite. You know how to barter. Alert our past so out of at habitat in surprise you or make a shot and you know this guy is making some pretty unbelievable shot a little bookshop little floaters and you could still be cute yeah so. You know the cool thing is it is. He's gonna get better he's only 22 and he works is. And I will guarantee you that next year in his repertoire. Will be a three pointer because he's been working on it packed into practices in the shootaround. And you see him. You know on his midrange jumper he's got nice form in nice touch and reissues the three. He's out there make it a ball that he looks like. Comparable Horry capable three point shooter and I talk to stop about he said yeah not this year you know once he gets an off season though. It or not at the day and he thinks soul feel comfortable allowed him to shoot threes and if you look at what that's done for brook Lopez's game without uncle Marcus all game. You know seven footers out there or shoot threes they can be here real weapons so I think they've really. They've really found some gold with just kid I mean. And here so happy to be here he'd love you love seeing you look the role he loves. The position that the team is in those kind of fighting for a playoff position. He's really embraced everything here. Yeah that the touch and in some of the passes there I think what is it surprised me just he seems like yes a high basketball IQ and it's not what you were hearing you know coming from from Denver but. You mentioned just kind of the energy like when you look at Damian though that I've we've all been asking what's been wrong this entire season and it just he. He looks like he's enjoying plane again and and I don't know if that's all because of under conserve. It's just that you know kind of an excitement thing but even he just looks. The entire team just looks like there is a different energy level these last came from games. No question video won the game I think to break did wonders I think she was really doubt student who did an appeal on that body or it. But Whitner. There is. It's really interest in dynamic to heed these two are all up herbal. They're constantly. Around each other. And Damian has really taking taken very. A liking to jam it in wanting to school I am and educate him. He's constantly calm overtook blocker and going over video if you watch any games he's constantly. Can put his arm around him and and walk them through some place Turkey could coverages. And you don't. On the same token you know he says that Dirk is very played pulled him in camp is almost a catch kilometer trek to pick little brother. And that kind of neat thing in and Dirk is really talked about how he's never had. One player of this talent. To play with him and also a guy who and it's motivated him and traditional leadership skills that makes him want to get better so. It's really kind of an odd couple pairing but it could really work out well. Jason clicks CSN I guess if you look at the standings. There are only four teams in play for the eight seed. Even though local cities las for a road they're still six games up. On nine Denver so. Denver right now is 2935. And the blazers are only one game back in that with a pretty manageable schedule here. And then you have Dallas who has caught fire a little bit their plan and they they had a revived. Season to now just a little bit like the blazers in there having fun. In the Minnesota is still in there but if you look at these teams isn't. I mean don't the the blazers should get the number eight. I do yeah especially when you look at there schedule I mean. Thirteen of their twenties are against teams including record and I think world may be are at home. So yeah attitude is they have to be easiest path Dallas so also has a fairly easy schedule. Particularly in the next week or so to replace a real dark Tibet's Phoenix. Team like that so. I think you can be between Portland and Dallas so. Look cute there's no question that right now is the best basketball but to blaze has been playing all year all year no question about it. Offensively keep sensibly. And I think. That they selector going to get better prisoner it's more acclimated and familiar with. With the place and reception and how people moved in were they like to ball. So. That's why I would give the edge to Portland over ballots. Gasoline sold tanking thing I mean it's it's right out there and they're gonna go for it and. Yes you know like the last time we talked to they were right on that task well what do you do do you tanker deep technical or at. And I think I read the legislation they showed some good real quick that eight. We can be a decent team. Then I think they needed tank but they've shown I think you're not last week the last amid talk. Deep kind of turned the corner a little bit and had shown that. They they played this. Level about while they sustain the pin. You know my knuckle foreign boy you look at the legal State's plane right now. There are some chinks in the armor there and with the way court must plan. I could see them I don't see them beat them I could see them making an interest in. One other I don't know if I'm gonna go that far that goes eight and a quality. Figured out. I don't hey I don't think Golden State is necessarily. Capable of certain got a big man. I think there should be a real problem for the army is thought thought he he can't hang with him physically. I'm now the question is can view. Just send Golden State Whitner you know because they like to go so small. That's the big question that I don't know I'd like to see it. The warriors may average 150 kind of get serious strain my agreed memoir but I'm up and down the court just want to flies by you don't pay the right it did there's seeing infusion of energy it's it's more interest seeing the tank thing is we should probably just put it to bed they're gone for this. And they're really close of one other question I had for you that pertains to nothing. But that's as is Healy finally had his surgery. Why did they do that deal what what happened was there a miscommunication with him about it he can play if he couldn't. Good to two. Basically and a complicated. Sordid boiled down to this. Blazers thought he can play. Thought he was healthy enough to play and that this is really sad. My knees other. And so there was this constant friction where the team says it all over task. All of our Intel showed your knees should be. Capable playing in limited minutes not knowledge is up there at 38. Thought that he was. He was healthy enough to play that the role the role that they want him to play which is fifteen to twenty. And testers. Our architect about it he says nobody could tell me how I feel I'd he doesn't feel right and I don't want to test so. That's basically what a boat out to blazers started to play assisted auto. Is their hard feelings there. Yet. Yeah that was pretty clearly this week this surgery in the short surgery announced the issue here. Half. An isolated thing you know it's first time in the history of surgeries at a local labeled a successful surgery and you know as expected great you keep then you have got absurd. AM well let it didn't work out all right well. Thanks click have a good time tonight and I'm glad your pants are intact America we're getting people here who are wanting to have you signed those dancing in the high money even. So hopefully use that name now. Nauert any camps so little that's right CS. Basically and big news editor. Yeah my dad too I get to bits of news room down I think there was 10 Manger my guy or revelation that a terror he's doing in the Q laid knuckle about the lawyers I know. Ali end yeah no lawyer and that allows thinking in terms of sports 82 any commando cool yeah. What are the odds that the day has been a strip he's not commander he got really lucky at the bold move right there are really yes and quick is streak in the Tuesday. Yet the whole thing about where is it. Stop its. Let's stop that okay a can we stop that. But one bigger thing than the will touch on this next do you like the idea of America it's stepping up she'd three's yeah I think some people we re dealer now gone. Oh boy we don't need that you don't need you don't need the big bull way. Away from the basket even more than any RD is 90 he's not a back to the basket always at the basket guy as much he sees set screens and do our president. But do you really want. You really want that. Does that lies. I don't think it hurts to have an in your bag of tricks are able to do that next by 49 and the ten. Trying to advise against duke on insanity Bo van. All right Jason could come moments ago toughness that they use of your pitches you know. Four times three pointer will be thrown out of her to run next year in of course that's today's game. And laid out theories are right yes and he said Durkin sabonis shot threes well this guy's not either of those guys the old easy with that. Don't DeMarcus Cousins is put it into his bag of tricks a lot of guys he missed was pretty much every big men now I mean I can't think of one. Big big men. That doesn't mean Dwight Howard long yeah because he can't shoot this all does. Brook Lopez the started to I saw Robin Lopez shoot them now. I'm so I I understand that. You know it's nice to have a a big men that draws the defense out rightly seen but let's make no mistake. Please. You sits near peaches usefulness. Might this team near the man on both fans is new year. The basket and I think when you hear that he's adding a three and he goes than people think that you know he's launch in fighting game and I. Well sometimes it does that's the thing is they. That's the danger now is you fall in love with a and you settle for it but it DeMarcus Cousins didn't chalk up threes I'm get right to look at his numbers and see what he shoots from three. If he didn't settle for threes which he does at times. How much better is it for that team and they know he can knock them down. But he also settles forums so where is the tipping point of OK he's made a couple threes that's good. But he's also settled for five. And that's bad because that's five possessions that if he didn't have it at all and dean and try it and would have done a better look into points. We'll look at it like I I want to look up Marcus all and by the late at night free look at RT a but because and shoots 31%. From three years and that is coming to a disease taking game five. It says five that's too much man and that's not oh I'm sorry I sometimes turn out ten. Thirty he's shooting 31% from three with New Orleans and he is taking about fighting game when he was taking about by the game for the kings. But for the kings this year machine 35%. And cared but what was that Aminu last year. Yeah Iran ultra you'll have the right around that right. So. You know if you're gonna knock that down and I get the value of it. I totally understand that that's why everybody liked Meyers Leonard seven footer they can stretch the floor and step up that's good. But. Is long is it's all Orleans. Within the flow of the offense exactly two to three game yet not that many of them. And I just don't think it's a big NFL on the east sacrificing guy around the basket particularly guys so useful around the basket like America suddenly got to be careful with. It's not just that would when he gets it near the top of the key here in the in the circle there you know there's a lot of things that he can do with it you know I've you've seen a little bit where the offense is run through him and he's been a capable passer. Inking crates and stuff I think the theory is that do you have. When that becomes part of your game in your head do you naturally just start to drift. And I think that would be my my greater concern is that he starts playing just further and further that way even if he's not. Judy because it's you you're you're looking forward as opposed to letting becomes natural. Always really did he's a really good roller on pick and rolls if he starts to fade into the three point line more instead of going towards the Bassett is not nearly as if that's what I'm saying there was a player from last game were key role that got it to guys jumped to block it any. Passed it off to I mean you were heartless and Emmys he dunked. And not back goes away if all of a sudden you're trying to take place isn't Turkish isn't dive into The Who from the three point line again it's a lot more effective when that starts at the free throw line from the -- that I African meaning shot 36% from three last year which he had not even shot over. Thirty we murdered him prior. And yeah I nobody wanted him to shoot cousins sheets five he shoots more of them than Al farouq Aminu did last year he shoots at a lesser percentage. And yet nobody says a that was his book that's it always so great a simpler they can shoot three not all. I don't why it's your big has hit the grass right did get down there inch duke somebody gives you got moves you know it it's. It every followed with a three but I keep going back to it. I understand why. The analytics all that. But not all three pointers are created equal you know you get some of these guys out there chalk it up fadeaway threes with hands in their face is classic you can shoot 60% for the flurries are does that square feet which a lot of the big skin exactly. So I think he had a tread lightly on Allen. I can the next since the club. Let's start with this kid who's there but he does get he's a two year old boy that's nuts who survived a vote act all Butler in his dad is missing how did he do it next.
