Some people who waiting by patiently on the phone lines let's go out to four water dale were Rick is standing by Rick thanks for joining the program are you doing tonight. I'm doing all summed thanks for thanks for having me sort of wanted to go a little bit off what was said earlier it's a great to be yourselves Florida stand golf fans. They'll eat. Hurricane coming up and out popped Ian account. And then Miami or contrast Gloria it's seem like a turning kind of all young talent. And keep an of people that are you on that can develop so Kenny stills I think it's a great signing. And you realize that you get two talented receivers on the outside and you can still gonna get one I want covered that speed. It's like out so I look forward to great she isn't true young Miami Dolphins looked. Beat a young talent chemistry and Stan announced our new contrition so. It's a great moments wondered your question based on that and also looks. What else do you say there's a beautiful point and both of person check around for the dolphins my guess is you go linebacker. And and Andy Dalton Clark. Maybe a little bit in the regions create C well. Yes yes some good points or to your right it is an exciting time here in South Florida and I think what's exciting is not it is the teams are having success at the moment put. To your point it seems like they're setting themselves up for success in the future so. It's up there remember appreciate the phone call thanks for Conan will have a good rest tonight a dancer question about the draft. Yeah I mean. What I was saying the in the last segment is that you don't eligible peppers if he's there or talent wise may be the desk guy and the port. And he's got a hybrid safety linebacker but if he's not there. There's also be a lot of linebackers who you can get it that pick a number 22 for the dolphins and so that would be my guess is where they go in the first round second round. Yeah could be offensive guard put could be a pass rusher as well depending on what did. Team as the best value and also really depending on the other activity that transpires over the next few days into through free agency. One piece of news and wanna pass along Adam Beason I talked about this a little bit. But a Brad Biggs. Who works up in Chicago recover its cover the bears since 2001. For the Chicago Tribune he did tweet out but an hour ago that there appears dark Ted Larsen is expected to sign a three year contract with the dolphins. I Sudbury Jackson had reported he's gonna come in for a visit tomorrow this report is. Make you sound like he's already ready to sign so. I'm not sure where it's gonna happen if it's going to happen if it already has occurred but Ted Larsen potentially new guard of for the dolphins he's got a bit of a journeyman. But certainly is igniting coming compete for one of those two spots now that handles moving to left tackle. And not sure if they're gonna bring it to mom bush brought back so. You have put to give back the draft question still a lot of action and activity that needs to take place between now and then but if I had a guest. I'd say if they now the branches in the mix and assuming these go to ball sheared I would have to say linebackers pry the biggest priority. Now they don't sign another defensive end it is worthy of being the rotation is similar to be another veteran then maybe a pass rusher depending on the value of their 22 but I beat those three positions. Dharma pass rusher linebacker and offensive guard probably be the biggest priorities. Are moving forward for. The others dolphins team as it pertains to a draft real quickly now time for headline it's. It's 790 the ticket W eight XY AM South Miami WSS asset and the beach DT may. The size home run. Here's what's trending and now now. Have the day off following last night's 1082101. Victory over the hornets Miami has announced a half game back to pull the pistons and bulls for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The heat's next game is Saturday night when they host Toronto tip off is at 8 o'clock in our Coral Springs auto mall heat pregame show begins. At CeBIT. The dolphins have been involved in the flurry of activity is a free agency is officially under way at 4 o'clock this afternoon is when things started. The team announced who reached a deal was safety Rashad Jones an extension that would keep him in South Florida. The 20/20 one the contract is reportedly worth sixty million dollars over five years. With 35 million guaranteed. The dolphins also announces signed tight end Anthony Fasano who originally played the team from 2008 to 2012. That deals reportedly for one year three million dollars. Additionally money placed a first round tender on linebacker Kiko Alonso also place original round tenders on safety Michael Thomas. And running back Damien Williams and finally in the ACC tournament. Miami Hurricanes. Fell the top seeded North Carolina 78 to 53. That was in the quarterfinals. Of the CC tournament so the Miami Hurricanes are now waiting for selection Sunday. To determine where they're going to play next in the big dance the NCAA tournament so. Those are your headlines as a mention before so much to discuss are coming up around 835840. Years so Tom De'Angelo. It is great job covering the Miami Heat for the Palm Beach post he'll join the program to a breakdown. More heroics from Dion Waiters last night and the twentieth victory in 24 teams for this Miami Heat team. And also really get to your phone calls 786360079. Lead at 7863600790. And your text messages it's 67974. At 67974. Trevor by the way some more. Music. Mitch considered by the by the textures you restarted the show off The Beastie Boys. And as some meat from the lap of forces thirty years ago today licensed to ill by The Beastie Boys as the number one out there ago. I'm sure that's what Trevor was thinking when he put the song. We do we also have someone here asking about what about Lawrence Timmons well according to Armando some barrel to Miami Herald. Lawrence Timmons is scheduled to come in for a visit with the Miami Dolphins he is the visits that have been reported. Motor show after that about to local reports. I indicating yet patriots defenseman troubleshooter visiting the dolphins he's from Fort Lauderdale. Hollywood hills high school and Adam Beasley Tweeter earlier that he literally drove from his home. To the Davie Florida practice facility which is. Kind of humorous I mean not so much when you consider the a lot of folks. In the NFL are from the South Florida area were a lot of players have homes down here in like this in the offseason down here and train down here by. Most of the time these free agent visits as you can imagine it's kind of like a really. Well thought out elaborate job interview where you get flown in from wherever you're located. Team employees so picky up in a team car and you get the five star treatment to bolts sheered. Sure draws a nice car he's been in the league for a little while made some money as a second round pick by Cleveland a few years back. He drove himself the Davey practice facility so. Certainly to staying up but getting back there was so. Sheared is visiting apparently now and then a model soldier reported doubted the dolphins also arrange visits will linebacker Zach brown. And Lawrence Timmons and Perry Jackson reported that the you have Larsson from the players the often cigar tent Larson. Dispose of visit to tomorrow. So Simmons certainly in the mix he's a guy that. May be able no with this Steelers and has been an effective player so I'm sure that he's going to be. Someone that's attractive to them the question is he's primarily played as a 34 outside linebacker so I'm not sure what his it would be is it 43 defense event. Or if you can transition to outside linebacker in the 43 system. Not sure but certainly the dolphins and the defensive staff phi have an idea in mind when it comes to what they wanna do. There real sort of texture from the 786 and says what's up with. I'm very little life left yes I mean that is why he felt the fifth round out of Boise State I mean he was. Phenomenally productive in college and for a very good Boise State program though they're not the major conference but. Played some good football out there. By the talk. Entering the draft and there were reports that. It Lisa one of his knees it was a bold humble very little cartilage I remember reading all that and thinking. Well this is kind of a risky pick for the dolphins but at the same time my gut reaction was in the fifth round. You do going after a guy who was of personal all around threat on the backfield bull as a runner as a receiver. In college and highly productive I thought it was great value for them. I didn't I didn't expect him to explode the way he did go over a thousand yards and make a Pro Bowl last season in just his second year. Of course helped up but the fact of Lamar Miller departed he got over some. Barrel what we call them personal locker room not missing off the field issues but attitude issues that a gay sector. Being left to go home now for the first game of the season didn't make that trip to Seattle went after that. Really was the life blood of the office and they relied a ton on him and offered some numbers for the dolphins passing wise. Were decent but the running attack was released. What kept everything going for them so that was the story engage IDs needs if he hasn't had knee issues since entering the league. He missed time during his rookie season because of and injury. Early on but. Other than that jaded Jahri has been healthy so. In and tell a knock on wood on on all these issues when it comes to injuries especially the National Football League you OP can stay healthy but certainly plenty of potential. We think of him lining up in the backfield coming off a break out season. Kenny stills back on the outside Dovonte Parker hopefully maturing on the other side. Of of Kenny stills and of course Jarvis Landry who is in your leading receiver. Since coming out of school's second round pick out of LSU. That combined with now Julius Thomas is a pass receiving and a tight end. Right ten us to be with these shops and I know that you know instills came to town a couple of years ago things seem to be great in at a Greg Jennings and everything in. It we we've hyped up this wonders your position for awhile after a number of years in which that was the primary excuse for ten el right beat sneezes we made was that. Offensive line wasn't good enough and I think there were some merit to that because of all the sacks he took though. I beat a lot of those sacks. Were his fault as well lack of pocket awareness of the databases were put them. Extremely well we saw that paid dividends this past season and he's. Really adjusted his game and hopefully this injury but is coming back from with a knee injury doesn't affect him too much as far as mobility but. Point being that was an excuse in the wide receiver position was excuse for awhile that he didn't have enough Pauly receivers. You could judgeship fairly as a former first round pick but now. All but the line issues still on the card thing to go by. Seems like they're set up nicely in terms of bouncy to one James. And of course when army tons hole. Taylor is that many more excuses anymore I thought he had played really well before getting injured obviously team. Primarily on his back wins the ten games are meant more to come in towards the end. But on the whole. He's got to be really excited. Having stills Parker and landry's your top three guys in no particular order and now Julius Thomas who's had his best years in the NFL. Under Adam case when they were together in Denver. Very very intriguing for the skill position groups of the Miami Dolphins the offensive side of the ball and I think overall my biggest take away from the first what. Forty last 48 hours or so last 44 hours whatever time for anyone to give when all this activity has taken place because. A lot of the big news the dolphins have made a banned by resigning players on the tuna Rashad Jones hundred branch and Kenny stills. But you stay way is that you got a guy in Kenny stills. Who could have gotten at least two million dollars more per year on the open market elsewhere. All the reports indicated except George Janet wanna give credit to Joseph chef from Palm Beach post he did report last week from the Columbine. The there was a possibility that stills might BOQ and eight million dollars per year. And that ultimately is what he's accepting on average warriors 32 million dollars according to reports one million guaranteed but. Kenny stills could've gotten upwards of twelve million dollars per year on the open market. He essentially left two to four million dollars for season. On the table to return to the Miami Dolphins. What has the ongoing. Storyline bed for the dolphins team and that the criticism largely. Offseason champs right in years past there willing to spend the money don't wanna make the big splash. And they do it. Four players. From other teens in free agency. And most of the wisdom says. That if you're going to spend big in free agency you're not getting the best talent out there you're getting at best beat Los talent because. Most top and NFL talent. Doesn't leave. Wherever start. So all the top top top level talent for the most part. They get locked up in Worrell whatever location their right the best players in the league they state. With their teams tackler with this offseason Antonio Brown becomes a high paid receiver football and he sees the Steelers Libya bell stay with the Steelers. JJ watt easing leaving. Houston you name the best players in the league. And they all stay where there's balls debate now you've got a guy like Ndamukong Suh was considered one of the best players that was a rarity. But I also think Detroit didn't wanna spend a 114 million dollars by the dolphins did on defensive tackle. But for the most part. That's in the door opens them all. Go out and free agency make the big splash try to reach surge the roster in a big way and it really hasn't worked with the likes of Mike Wahle Austin Ellerbe. And Philip Wheeler I assume I think he's been pretty good. Jury's still out of the bread and Albert would have been good if he can stay healthy but you get the picture. You can name upon two players that the dolphins went out as an a ton of money on a free agency. And it didn't help the costs. And I think part of the problem was that the culture. Inside the locker room inside the building wasn't what it needed to beat. When the doll and spend big in free agency. But it's on their own players to stay in house. And they're leaving money on the table to remain down here. I think that shows that not only. Has there been a culture shifts. Put it it's a hugely positive sign moving forward now some may say well you know branch stills. They were part of this team last year and other won ten games but. Oh really improving were to bring in the same guys back. My point would be. And Adam gates. Who's ahead in the city don't Cris Carter Mike Tim on the give credit to him Adam geese is a wanna creating. The positive culture for this dolphins team so the guys like Kenny stills and under branch don't decide to test the open market and they won a state. Prior to even the opportunity. A being of creates rightly we're endured that 24 year old guy in Kenny stills. Doesn't always hit free agency just do it to be courted in the process right. He decides to sign up immediately with the door opens before him becoming a free agent again I just think this is a shift change for this organization. Federal that'll translate to a ton more wins next year a ten wins was a surprise the exceeded expectations this past year. But if you're taking a look from the outside. I think moving forward this is going to be appoint real look back and say. The dolphins were starting to build something that potentially could be pretty special. All because Adam gates is Foster. A winning culture and a culture which people wanna be around. I got was we'll see what happens via today got to win games on Sundays during the upcoming season. But certainly this is a positive sign at this juncture of the offseason. Compare. Especially compared to a would become accustomed to this Miami Dolphins sit.

The Miami Heat for the Palm Beach post as a rhetorical bar last night's 1082101. Victory over the hornets Dion Waiters clutch once again. To see that. Our love the description from Erik Spoelstra a couple of games ago after he hit that bank shot. Late in the contest to seal the victory against the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. He described Dion Waiters competence as irrational confidence is right irrational company this. For Dion Waiters it was on display again last night three huge three winners. The final four and a half minutes or so to help. The heat to their twentieth victory the last point four games we'll talk all about that coming up in about 1015 minutes with Tom but as IT before. We went to break I wanna get involved and update you on what's going monotone free agency unbelievable flurry of activity today so lowers deals and so we're just some reports of what. Was potentially going to occur if you wanna get involved in the conversation. We encourage you still wanna be interactive tonight you can call the show at 78636007976360. 0792. Also Texas show at 67974. That's 67974. With the new lease your kicking off officially this afternoon for clock. A ton of activity. Shaft tour and Rappaport from newsprint and NFL network. Are respectively really been working nonstop with all the breaking news. The absolute stunner of the day. Which I had to do like a quadruple take on when I sought first. On Twitter and I thought perhaps because for those you were on Twitter this occurs in time at times Matsui breaking news. I had to double check to make sure. It wasn't a fake account but in fact it was a real account Adam show after first reported this the Texans today traded quarterback Brock oss Weiler. A 20182. Round pick and a 20176. Round pick to the Cleveland Browns. In exchange. For a fourth round pick this year. Houston. Gets out of a seventeen receiving a sixteen million dollar guaranteed salary for this season and the move clears ten million dollars in cap space. The browns are reportedly attempting to trade us Weiler. Or the go and release. So this was in many of the descriptions say in NBA like trade right so the trade deadline. Close to the NBA we've seen recently where you've got a veteran player. Who's got a big contract was traded to a team that doesn't really want them what is willing to take on the money and then they wave. Right that's traveler Andrew Bogut. Enter Bogut was traded from the mavericks this 76ers. The sixers didn't really want them but the mavericks wanted to get rid of the April. So the six is like that's fine what will take his money for the rest of the year. And now we're gonna release him any ultimately signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers Deron Williams gonna do the same thing though that wasn't via trade might. We don't know bloated you know. Fractured his leg unfortunately for him in the first minute of his game actions we've Lecavalier against the heat on Monday night but you get the point. This happens a lot. In other sports it rarely if ever happens in the NFL but essentially the brown said. Listen we'll take us while there away from you Houston. Just give us a 20182. Round pick give us a sixth round pick would you fourth rounder will take the money. We want to draft picks and we don't even care if rocked Roswell or sticks around. At first a lot of people were reacting like why on earth with the browns want. Rock cost Weiler they don't want rocked us while there. What they had a huge amount of salary just breeze over a hundred million dollars in salary test based entering today. And they're okay were taken on the sixteen million dollars for the ten million dollars in cap space amazing. Development. As the Texans now open up the possibility. Many speculating. That they can get Tony Romo because contrary to previous reports though the cowboys today. Apparently. Took away Tony Romo right area we heard the last few days Tony Romo will be available on Thursday they're gonna get rid of him. They're gonna you're at a moment is so they're looking to trade him so that's the latest with Tony Romo maybe he ends up in Houston perhaps Denver those the two locations real the most. Other payers have released Jay Cutler after eight seasons and Chris mortenson reported that the jets may be interested in Jay Cutler. I hope so but I NAC's standpoint. They the dolphins and the fans down here being happy to have Jay Cutler in the division. Packed Rashad Jones could it's a quick work and earning the big extension and he got to he gets to face. RJ Cutler pad his stats a little bit twice a year are Kirk cousins also reportedly has recently appealed to Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. Torre trade but that has yet to occur. Notable reported deals and these are gonna come and a fast and furious is dimension of fuel outs on Jeffrey in a Philadelphia one year fourteen million dollar deal. Off from the guard standpoint and a dolphins fans know they need guards a couple of big time guards off. The market angles opens a guard Kevin zeit blur signed a five year sixty million dollar deal. Worth 31 and a half million dollars guarantee of windows of the rounds. So he's off the board. Then up former cowboys opens guard Ronald Leary said to join the Broncos for four years 35 million dollars so for anybody who thought the dolphins could go out and get a top notch guards. Some of the best ones are off the board for eight ton of money arm meanwhile former Bucs quarterback Mike Glenn in a expect to decide over the peers for 45 million dollars over three years at nineteen million guarantee it's of Cutler leaving. And Mike Glenn and who hasn't started in a couple of seasons and backing up James Winston he. Is going to Chicago and then in the division. Big news in New England a team that notably doesn't spend a lot of money in the past on free agents well. They're bucking that trend because five years 65 million dollars forty million guaranteed the patriots dishing out. To cornerback Stephon Gilmore leaving the bills to sign with New England. Patriots also expecting to re signed defensive tackle Alan Branch they traded for colts tight end Dwayne Allen that was reported yesterday. So lots of activity in New England who had a lot of cap space also bills restructuring the contract of quarterback Tyrod Terrell Taylor sees remaining in buffalo. DeSean Jackson departing Washington go to Tampa Bay for a reported three year 35 million dollar deal with twenty million guaranteed. Cardinals defensive end clay is Campbell. Apparently was weighing opera's between the jaguars and the Broncos he's gonna silent Jacksonville were reported four years sixty million dollars and thirty million guaranteed. And also the jaguars snagged AJ Bowie. From the Texans the quarterback signing for 67 and a half million dollars over five years 26 and have million dare NT. That's just some of the activity that occurred today but did wanna highlight some of that that was occurring also the quarterback position but also. In that the AFC east as you see up plenty of activity going on today wanna give back got on the phone lines at 786360079. When you wanna talk he dolphins as a matter but from the dolphins standpoint let me know your reaction to what the team has accomplished so far. In free agency. Brings stills back under branch back Rashad Jones back. Anti Fasano on his way in which they Dion Sims on his way out. Among some of the story lines for the dolphins team let's go to North Miami were Sean is standing by Sean thanks for joining the. I'll know definitely dom I don't want to say want what one thing's for sure as women couple points but all I'm really happy with saw. With the Fasano acquisition. I think as far as blocking goes in whatever we need him to do movies that I have a player you know little old but you know he's comfortable with the franchise about all of the great. On and I really do harm you know I like how we're we're we're kind of changing our. Model you know I'm were kind of you know keeping our own players because some in that previous saw. You know president and and then you know management and not have failed to do some I'm really happy with that. And arm my my one question though is. Do you think that we're gonna. Make a deal which article entry before. I mean the field and start. I don't know I was under the impression you know baseball stern tweet that he posted earlier. Few months back and talk about. You know then getting paid and I mean feel that we're taking care of our own and feel that they try to do that they were Kiko Alonso but I guess you know of the contract negotiation that worked out. So on do you think that we're gonna make a deal would charted before. This is an upward you know and they're gonna make one during the season and I'm pretty sure you're gonna wanna get. A little bit more than what he's been making. Yes yeah for Ramirez's second round pick demean the really wrong for by our standards he's making good money but by NFL standards. He's very underpaid base in the production so. Sean I'm my hope you don't along your your point present there keeping guys in house and what frustrated me in the past is silly guy like Lamar Miller. Where he was very productive when he was given the opportunity I thought they could locked him up. A year before his contract was done. As to a relatively cheap deal that would carry him down here. But I ultimately test of free agency got the big money would be part of the same thing. I don't know if you'd do it a year before their contract so you can get them before the salary cap increases in before they potentially have their most productive season now Landry. Is in that situation now has got a year left if I'm them. I get some window with him now because if next offseason is like this offseason the salary capital of the 1015 million dollars. Are suddenly you've got a a new benchmark for the wide receiver position. You get him now it may seem like a lot of money but he's backed up backed it up with production he's by far. Your best playmaker on offense. I think you get to get it done sooner rather than let. Now I would hope they do and I mean. Like I mean. I'm I'm pretty confident would this frontal it would with the front office all of their what they're gonna do I really conduct a coaching staff and adding we do have a good. Overall team. I as far as like not the actual president played that type overall and I think everything's in place and you are a whole hope that they'll do right by Atlanta because. He's just you know he deserves the money and and then yeah he's so Smart that it. You know we missed out on getting those guys were cheaper and and I really think that they should definitely try to think about that would Landry I'm glad they kept Jones arm you know pretty solid. I mean I just really hope. It doesn't end up we go you good employed in free agency will be really backer like any soda candy though it's hard to get twelve million dollar. A year from another team or potentially. I mean what can charters Landry get. United exact and then what would it be next offseason right there's literacy I don't pay shoppers should Chicago to Ron Arad. Are meant so much appreciate it thank you there is Sean appreciate Conan from North Miami got more people on the line all give back to talking that dolphins with everybody reacts two that.

Unwritten Dion Waiters I'd love the characterization of Erik Spoelstra a couple nights ago when he said after the Cleveland game. That he has irrational confidence and it was on display again last Clinton just how clutch is he banned during the stretch. Well it's been unbelievable what's that started with that that big shot at goal against Golden State that actually but one of the game that probably. The biggest of all but there have been bigger and others that has been like decreed a game that we you know it came with twelve seconds to go put them up by seven Nikki mr. that they probably still would be game that was big shot but not who wouldn't they use. Go Hussein that would surely was the second and third win in the street view of the stock at the start of the turn around and not give the application of what was to come. You know the big thing what would Eric talked about it is. I don't think it would yeah it would pass but it was funny somebody asked him last night. Do you have a pretty bad Serb you'll look at that you you know to combat shot give it that you take a bet Chinese that now instead of the idea that would try it. I can put so that that the competent he added I don't think he needs. Any shot that the bad shot I mean did a lot of these greens that he made have been kind of some of them have been in Britain and have a good shot the wanna Cleveland. Woods 32 feet big shot. The one last night with 45 seconds to go on the corner he actually double clutched but he did get it. That could that should have been foul actually east headed in the reasoning ego clashes could you get in the army he had him. Yeah stoppers motion and then go back into loans at the end which was amazing access site. So I Egypt has great he just has this. Is this he does this confidence that if we didn't that he can do anything he wants to do the court. That was probably to his detriment early in his career it is time to work to his. Favor now and make him the player he is and that is one that is willing to take that big shot fifty missile that brought you were a couple of games earlier this season. Police check battle I believe a land that was one of the log one of the biggest Sacramento one of the overtime games may be able Libya shot that he missed it went on to beat the crypto. But he you know but he continues to take them and that was making them and that gives you know that is builder confidence more it's. Certainly am not as if he needed to arrest. Does it. It is and he's pretty sure of himself below which it's it's been fun to see a work out Foreman. The way he's so prospered you were the Miami Heat Tom what one of the things it says you wrote about which. There's really spur to do is one of their last 24 game winning streak. The importance of the three point shot a during the team's resurgence I mean that that can't be said enough fright the with a how effective they've been from the outside. It probably will not only that it affected making it pretty good at all but the fact is this sort of beside me and on the side of them making yes and sciele. It all come together in and it's not just. It's easy to look at the odd into it angle or not. But when you look at the way. Luke Babbitt has started making shots the way they thought he'd make him when they traded for him in the summer but they admitted they they've got to make a really the season Wayne Ellington being part about it that I you know little little little cold enough for them but many jobs in the microwave. I mean that Wayne Ellington did he come in. An instant opera you know he may not he shouldn't 37 point 5% on the year of which is a good bit too big it's a good record percentage. But it's it's not you know totaled 40% is not something they look at say now. But he seems to make him in bunches when they bad three in a row at the end of. In the Cleveland game in the third quarter. While when that gore I'm a Dion had its first quarter he's cool down in the third quarter when he externally in a row after. The Cleveland cut the lead down a three when everybody in the world but okay here's what we expect that we who could who got a bit Iran. They can and you know they gonna do it in the past and now they can't take over we can't. He makes three and then of course when gore on the consequential of the sport or. Last night he had out yet a couple of fourth quarter of leaks. He just easy bake swinging makes them when they really matter and that's it it also we would he shoots. Three for seven or you know what sport for ten. They seem to be big ones. Right Magruder same way Rodney Magruder that a great shooting percentage but he but he makes simply wouldn't the plate he may stand out. And that's and that's what they have adjustment of the guys. That the two guys toward the leading scorer of the leading corporate players. It it go on a deal that's been on these. These other role players who have started to do what is actually moved punitive way it started to do with Christine expect. I know about them early scenes. Tom Diaz LaMont he'd be writer for the Palm Beach post joining us here on the program he could bomb on Twitter at Tom De'Angelo 44. And the reflecting back on Monday's win. Tom what are your thoughts I mean I I said Josh when we're on the show on Tuesday night that I thought that was the best. We know of this seizing considering running Tyreke sat out Saturday night it with the intention of winning the game Monday go to the defending champs. Home court and still get the victory you would use day to me I know examined and the Golden State win probably. Head to head which was the best of the season so. Are you right in fact I wrote that it. Maybe the most impressive regularly feel win in the post LeBron era and I was in the post weekly or when you think about it. You don't wish I that was impressive but they were out LeBron they were out with Libya without Kyra read. You know just the way they won that game. But Monday night going into the game the Golden State game with a home the Golden State. You know they were relatively full strength this game you had we in new had you had a LeBron coming up the rest. You led Cleveland the you have everything going Cleveland's way. For hurry you know kind of getting back at the victory after the way things were separated by much that the Bolivia to let into the game. You know it was a little bit portable more motivation there. And then come and then ninety minutes he supported by managed torture while we learned that. We learned that that James and Taro plant. So there was no I I would have put the exact idea. I've said that if someone gave me twenty point over on the Cleveland went out of Donald I expect that was just going to roll them out there or would everything considered. Not I think is no question was most impressive when this season like action if I'd be. But but most impressive win in three years and eight on Debian on a rode it gets her just for every reason and that's the way they and it wasn't just a win it would really they were ahead by twenty points in the fourth quarter yeah no could have made the run and and they cut it down that they I guess they got within five think it would but they got that fight sure. In the fourth quarter late in the fourth quarter was a little bit late you know Spoelstra that we game when another ten minutes who knows that people want and another to lead to work goes they put a puck. But but you know being led by twenty points in the fourth quarter against that team and actually ended they work. Not that bad yet that was that was the that was impressive built the most precedence you know walk I see. Yeah yeah well said with a with all those different factors are there were lawyers so. He now is a half game back of both the seven an eight seed to tour after he's back in the sixty about wanna get too greedy here Tom when there aren't that many games left relatively speaking in the regular season but. At just how high do you think this team can ascend in the playoff standings realistically what before the before the post season is upon us. I think what are they really happened five C a we wanted to go perfectly maybe for Atlanta. I don't think they catch Indiana I I I you know I think it can fight I think there are fourteen news. For two spots right now I have not been Charlotte. I'm not really concerned that Chalabi charlatan of this but noted there they're not there aren't too happy and eat right. But realistically I believe your fourteenth citing sort two slots. Com and I think Indiana should be able to hold up in the united. Big game against them against Milwaukee actually use it in there and people forget Milwaukee get tied with the key. Haven't put behind them but there were tied them. Essentially. Then I believe a couple of days you're going to tomorrow night. That idea Friday night that we can be and there's more Quito. That would go be accepted but you know we're ducking out of the penalty you guys to catch some. I'll tell you I. I had at first I believe that by the big Milwaukee was going to be challenge that it became that there are going to be in Nevada now likely to bite people. You Miami that actually make it treated. Chicago doubt I would if I had to pick one love before that and say I'd. I don't think we'll make it. I think that Chicago and I was just going through this schedule and that schedule was a killer coming up. I mean that they have a lot of tough games coming up dobbs starting in Houston tomorrow night. You know I think that's the one Q midnight on really well right now the Boston zero. But Dwyane is actually you know do have to wings went in and out of the lineup together as the eye injury now. They lose to Orlando I think your corruption that now it EU would you know what there was no one behind he would say we're not only need one cheap but but. But they got to make sure that now he knocked them out so that Milwaukee actually the two's plot so. So it can get out of the last week but I but he I think you get is seven but it estimates that 5050 am have not been not a lock for these playoffs which provided by any means. I'll make this just to get a chance they get 780 they did they get of these you know batter and. Yes that's for sure in right now Detroit at halftime leaves leads the cavaliers 5552. So. You don't need need to Cleveland to a come through an up beat the pistons a little help. Offer the heat there are finally Tom ought to start to wrap this up. There's so much has been written about this and covered by it. I think it's true considering that turnaround we've seen guys like James Johnson Dion Waiters Ellington who you mentioned before is it's an offense off the bench. These guys have really bought into the heat culture and are having career years there there's something to be said for what's being done down there. Between Pat Riley Erik Spoelstra and that staff. Well. When you look at the players who they who they have development what's ironic is the players that we can make this season saying that this season was all about. Developing on god he concluded the Swiss will mostly because of the injury. And I was had a pretty good year but as far as the guys that have just. Really developed dude that. We would've said in August September I would these guys hit one here and get the shot we don't know now that your judgment James Johnson. Ellington waders. And then and capable group that risk because but we know each year he got the two year contract either rookie so we don't have actually attempted to compare to but those other three well veteran guys. Who have been around the league. We force. Before quiet teams who couple albums out and have an have just never been able to find that placed. And James says that at bat and at the queen's start saying now. This is the key games I was as James said the civil I'm network replayed in a box they do seem to put it in a boxer didn't let them be who was this of course he's been allotted to beat. Who was shot and versatility. Sure what you can do. The winning great would it comes to when it comes to free agency. Whether any of these three all we are but none of them one of them to them come back. There are going to be guys out there or not the top level guys back there aren't a lot of really great top level anyway the week but you know Blake written you know Durant Khalid loudly and all of that they know they know they have to get it. But there's going to be some guys out there who gonna be the top of the watch T. What mid level guys who are going to get. I'm going to get back salaries they're gonna look at this team and say wow look at the money they made. Dion Waiters that it made James Johnson this year Ellington might bring them back so he won't give you may not. A huge paycheck next year in a minority that. Big contract but those two gonna get. Much bigger contract in the sign for all but summer and they say you know what. I got my wanna go there first of what we've got to they can win. And that they can develop me I can develop what these guys develop maybe they turned me into eight. You know fifteen million dollar player to a 25 million dollar you play socket so I think it's going to really help them stood created units of the argument this is the argument that I never bought it to would you rather have first or second pick that lead to be 88 seed now. I'd rather that you need to let me and he may never meant you got a lot of meaningful games that mean you develop players that I didn't finish with a certain worst record release Adams nobody's playing well. And they beat the benefit to having many see it as opposed to have a first sector picked when nothing's guaranteed. Far outweigh you know obviously borrow we have that I drastic so. So yeah every day I think developing these players are gonna benefit them not only with these players possibly returning them come back. They don't price himself while he. Veronica that's gonna help them with other guys who might wanna come here. Yeah I agree with you I mean that the heat experience at fifteen and 67 season and they'll Michael Beasley out of it you know on that you know don't. Exactly you know so. They had to that you had two top four picks I guess that'd be but we do glimpse look like that it. To topple that usually not what they wanted to do there if they'd just beginning that he probably want to to. Right don't you could so how do you get the number one number two could initiate you might be doing away yeah but you also might pick Michael legal. You know so where did that that the puts it look if Philadelphia the Philadelphia is lost forever Philadelphia is that you wisdom has been rebuilding for what seemed like five years. And it had all these high graphic to what do they have the short. They have a they had been no go a little bit greater for the baggage giggles again but I think for him. You know they they have bobbled they have been beaten to which it great player Okafor who don't want because he betrayed they were trying to trade. This really popped we were picked in the draft so bad that exactly that that's. But wouldn't god they have a pretty good future right. I get that but they've been doing this for five years and they're still not even close to play out so now I don't. I I do not add to that the everybody you know a couple 23 years ago you know boom boom you get the top two picks in the U guaranteed. Not nothing's guaranteed he could wind up late so in the lake is another example of the number one to pick last two years and where. I'm not I would I'd much rather be winning and I'd much rather be developing players to wait to see them develop the. Players and certainly with the way the team his client and the fans would agree this has been a really fun what you want right entertaining season at. Tried to have regular battery that would be like if this team was what was claimed the way they were when they were eleven of thirty who themselves say they had full you know eighteen wind right now. And Hillary Keenan in 3518. And 42 or something I don't know that place would be empty and it would be it may be decent. It beat it but but that didn't think he would be avoided more trouble how we can get anybody come here. Don't gonna wanna play you look at the cup added that it's just totally different atmosphere. And and that's all part of it is you're exactly right it just. You can't compare what it would be like. Right now that they were continuing on that track of 1130. Well. Woolsey as the next game is point out the Toronto on Saturday we'll try to keep it going to follow him on Twitter at Tom Diaz will 44 does a great job sectors were in the Palm Beach post Palm Beach post website as well Tom thanks so much of the time tonight and yeah I hope they keep going on Saturday.
