    It was a Celtics reunion of sorts by people on the set Kevin Garnett surrounded by big baby and Paul Pierce Kendrick Perkins . And and rat Raj on Rondo Rondo and then there was this were sudden strangely guy Ramon Ray Allen wasn't there Boyd an improbable reality in the week he left the Celtics. In the summer of 2012. I. Do they have a right to be hurt I suppose. I mean this is four years after they won the title this was. For years it's five years since then I mean get over guys there is treating us like he committed a panel. Well. This is interesting because we'd in the same conversation. Over the course of last night on TNT Kendrick Perkins also revealed that. He essentially had it been encouraging since he's reformer teammates who Russell was for Kevin Durant right those two guys try to you know communicate. Because it's been sold sold cold and distant between the two of them since Kevin Garnett decided to leave and so that seemed to be something that really. Was a serious source of pride for Kendrick Perkins revealed affected those too apparently of talks late in the season after Russell Westbrook. Broke the record of Oscar Robertson so I was thinking about that. And I can understand Russell Westbrook all the Oklahoma City fans would be upset Kevin Garnett . You know he leaves a team that was in 187 or cancels same warriors and they had a 31 lead right today
    get over it's almost five years later and at the time the Ray Allen decided to leave the Celtics and go to the heat he was a free agent it was his right. And he was
    Not only gave me the Celtics the two years prior to a Ray Allen decide to go to we keep the Celtics were eliminated each of those years in the playoffs by the heat. So you know this is this is one of the biggest rivals in the Eastern Conference so I can understand the bad blood in terms of heat Celtics. Playoff disappointments at the hands of the heat I get it at the same time if your Ray Allen . Like you look at it Celtics group and that core players the writing was on the wall. We Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce region up there and age they weren't able to contend. Legitimately contestants in the Eastern Conference anymore he's until brawn James he's like man I got a chance he'll play weren't the best player of this generation. And potentially win another title. Why knows less money but. Promote it's a business Josh how many times we talk about that right. For as much as we wanna get Sena medals fans and why did Dwyane Wade leave and all the other instances over the course of time. It's a business Ray Allen made a business decision should he had told his friends about it and get my head's up. Surety that would have been a nice thing to do like to understand what it might be a little frustrated. But man this is very childish five years later they're going on national TV and all of them to commanders say. We're not reach out to Ray Allen he needs to reach out thoughts or. Here you know it's funny as I said we're gonna talk about the separate headlines

Calling 911 win in an accident may just not be enough car accident remember after 911 call 411180411. Pain. 180411. Payne is a legal and medical referral service. Non employee spokesperson. If Miami. You watch all them basketball action with a scored 232070. Hooters calendar collector cups filled with the Budweiser we only seven dollars or jokes that he's throwing. The sign up for the bracket. His challenge now. Talk to admit any of you forget sandbox. Then it got there. All over the shortest weekend of the year but it is brighter outside later that we're very glad about that. Plot to talk about it tonight show. We don't we're joined by Greg likens we'll take you know 10 o'clock. Bottom March Madness madness facts and figures we got little betting tips and everything and little historical facts that might help you win your pool. It was a year or two ago when. The end Gilbert owner of the cavs know this was backed by Warren Buffett. Was it a million dollar offer anybody got a perfect bracket yet billion dollar bracket and I believe I don't know the exact details disarray and we've. It opens when the same thing is he doing the same because the odds are spate astronomically against you for getting appropriate bracket right that. It's it's a really good publicity stunt for them were they can offer the type of money that they actually do have which is amazing in itself that you know more Buffett's got that much money. But the same time oh that's nothing for him right billion dollars in fines and they is how to push exactly but it it brings publicity and it makes it fun but certainly not to have to pay that out to anybody. No I mean I just dollar. Do they give the fans a little break to their two picked the play in games. Not usually most of these brackets 64 starts on Thursday OK so why you can still fill out your brackets and then you can even even now you could fill out a bracket and seeded. You know in the game but seat because those two of those playing games for example. The Kansas State Wake Forest game the winner plays Cincinnati obviously so if you wanna do. Pick the winner against Cincinnati without knowing who the winner is yet and you could just do that right. I'd be some that and how far anybody is going officially. You know I mean you know running number of web sites and thaw your brackets which obviously keep track of everybody ESP n.'s CBS and and a whole plethora of others. But I disorder. With those web sites how far anybody has gone with perpich mark mother's anybody made it. As far as we know say to the final four. Digging all the games right now or the or this through the sweet sixteen probably Abbott. Elite eight I don't know I don't know how long how far anybody has actually gone nationwide it with I mean not a blemish on their bracket. Right now I and I always enjoy a media spin is the most prominent ones so they're always updating yeah you know the field as as the rounds progress to determine. OK do you know a bit this percentile of people still have a corporate bracket by what what the positive continuous. Yeah I did it's always fun to keep track of typically I'm I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. Because everybody brackets busted at least in one region it seems during the first weekend prefer the first day or two but certainly I I always hope. That this is the year or right I come through and have tremendous success on my memory regarding these things is very it was a blast through Middle Tennessee State did they beat Michigan State legislators attempting to eat the soup right I mean that headed just. Kill most everybody's for it killed majority the brackets because Misch in state was the most popular number two seed picked to get not only the final four potentially. Win a national championship. So Michigan State Denzel Valentine is now's Chicago Bulls. It was one of the players of the year in college basketball obviously Tom is those reputation. Is that which everybody knows he works magic. In March Madness but yeah Middle Tennessee State the crazy thing is a Middle Tennessee State. Is that they have pretty much everybody back this year plus they added a transfer from Arkansas who's a leading scorer. Another twelve seed and are popular pick. Ticket the upset in the first round when they play Minnesota. Looks what we always you know say twelve or satisfy that always seems to be the one number where there. At least as one upset a year into what you can almost bet the ranch at least 112 seed upend number five. The crazy thing is I was doing a little more research into this trio got to take this stuff pretty seriously the last five seasons some of those. The 512 matchup and the 611 matchup right now. They're even ten intent. So that means that 50% of the time the underdog is one in over the last five sees snow this year. You go to you know I don't this year you've gone to Vegas almost every year in the in recent memory it's brand like the last seminary years in Iraq for opening up golf over the grounds altering weekend typically it last year. I got there it's late Thursday night particularly get there Wednesday night. And then you're ready to go in around 9 AM local time in Vegas the next morning Thursdays on all the action begins. And in you set up for literally twelve hours of basketball action. And it's constant. And you know you don't even have to be betting on the games. If you're just a big basket right man. You can enjoy the armed beyond the atmosphere because everybody's keeping track of what's going on in games and oftentimes it's the best way to do it because there's three or four games on it wants. Editors are sitting at home we only won one television right. You go out there to some of the sports books of some of the parties have set up and you've got screens literally all over the place enormous Samaria. I've been to Vegas may be a dozen times in my life for the normally won't once they should like renamed Las Vegas boulevard after me but in the one time having Osama bucket list is to go. At least the Thursday and Friday the first Thursday and Friday. Blessed so the Saturday and Sunday but at least that those first two days and is more plant myself. And his watch all the games I think they'll be a blast that you've done and I have and only hear about that a little later in the show we'll also talk about the heat coming off a loss last night. Did you see the picture of Goran Dragic is why I era wonderment weeded out a picture I was right next to Dragic on Saturday night. And we as bad as the picture we saw yesterday it was bad. It was merely shocked but don't give picture I saw yesterday was our worst unless an outstanding you know pull away from him. On Saturday night when he still thought that was good chance he played. He did say that perhaps the flight the altitude. Would make it worse and perhaps it's time made it worse and of course he didn't play last night. Will proudly pray they had a day off today they'll practice tomorrow I'm not even sure Pete norm practice war wolf find out. On and of course the game is on Wednesday against the pelicans like wait and see but it was Jimmy couldn't couldn't see at all you know bid Saturday night he's in the visuals glory. Completely shut. Just based on the picture mean I you know I did watch the game set and I you were at the game senator rides on the lot from what had I not known what occurred. And I just saw that picture yesterday I would've thought that Goran Dragic. Mistakenly stepped into the ring with Floyd Mayweather you would have had a he should about a teachers that you should see the other. I think it would mean it looked like it looked like a fighter yeah they just finished of boxing match may match communities I literally was swollen shut yet available in the eyes. That is committed an first there was. We called him Erik Spoelstra called a bruise. And then as we head into the locker meet spokesman said it's officially an orbital contusion not napping a medical doctor. You know I don't know the difference it's it's a bad bruise contusion what everyone to call but that's the official. Diagnosis. I remember you and the game Saturday night in the broadcast it first when he had trouble getting up and and he had to get help in the locker room my thought perhaps. I'm must like why Leonard you'd be put the concussion protocol looked like those with a type symptoms he had and then a few minutes later Elvis and and rogue on drug is back in the bets so he had. So I was a quasi and so it personally okay and know who knows me music come back then. The teammate but it seems all the time out there restore the bench and he gets up to late high fire everybody takes the ice off a look all I took this. It's escalated really quickly that's the. Reaction we all had weeks first saw you know sought finally. Once that Powell once that ice was removed I call she noticed it like things are I showed my wife wanted to show the picture on Twitter yesterday. And even though she's in medicine she's a veterinarian and seen some pretty remarkable things she's I don't want us to that she thought I was commercial or like a bloody guy. As a notre shot and she did you that but still it when you see it it just makes you guessed. Dots yet it's a it's one of those injuries that I think will remember for one of these images you'll remember for a long time when it comes injuries and sports. We got a lot to talk our talk about that Jordan Cameron who just retired from the NFL when he year old former Cleveland and dolphins tight end. Just retired made some very interesting comments. This Steve Kerr Saturday nights at four of his players three stars or players. On Saturday night in their game in San Antonio. Against the spurs got a lot of thoughts about that I went back and forth on Twitter with a guy. Talking about what should happen when stars who go on the road. Rest which for the consequences beat. Should fans get reimbursed it's it's better topic before. It reignited again this weekend. And we're gonna get into that as well of course he embarked on a five game homestand right now. There are on the outside looking in of the playoff picture before we go on anything else though let's go to headlines. It's 790 toxic DW eight XY AM South Miami WSS assets and the beach DT may. It's home run. Here's what's trending and now now. He had the day off today following yesterday's loss to the pacers Miami Curley is in the ninth seed in the east egg came behind the box for the eighth and final playoff spot. The resumes play on Wednesday when they host the pelicans to markets where announced his retirement from the NFL today the nine time pro bowler. Spent his career most of it with the cowboys the latter years with the Broncos he finished with a 138. And a half sacks good for eighth on the all time list. And one behind soon to be all Famer Jason Taylor so we fully expect markets where we'll get his bust as well in cantonal one day. And Greg the irrelevance Adam headline of the day Tim Tebow picked up disperse into the spring. Singling to left field off the Miami Marlins lefty Kyle lob steam Tebow would gone hitless in his first eight bats he'd gone hitless in his first date bats. Up of Major League competition the spring and by the way the Mets beat the Marlins. Six before they didn't make available after the game I think Terry Collins is getting a little bit we re. Of the circus involving Tebow I think. It is if you injected Terri council truth serum institute so let's send a minor only camped he clearly doesn't belong with the major leaguers or to send them there. You know senate under the minor league you have worked with a minor leaguers for the rest of spring training. He doesn't belong in double A were the best minor leaguers are seminal late. Yeah her legacy edition forced eight week I mean. Every game where he is will sell out because it's in T released from here. Right is that that's why I mean it's seems that they've relief fast boarded. His progress in terms of allowing him to participate in some of these games I I was surprised that was the case certainly spring a lot of scrutiny and a quick side note. You mentioned the Marlins left hander Kyle lob seeing. Does that sound more like a guy who should be a softball pitchers right there with senator Patricia attack not necessarily have the best name written there's other names and probably more fitting in in sports minister what you do bush. Yeah giving his teammates Kim a lot of ribbing I would imagine so all right there's a literal word I can use a ribbing that we like to keep our broadcasts like this'll only use that Smart move on your part. But the thing with Tebow and I know that a lot of people have brought this up by it's one of those situations Josh you follow baseball really closely. Is that we know there are those lifelong minor leaguers out there right those guys were fighting. For every clot scratching and clawing to try to make its Major League level. And you know when they get a hit in spring training nobody says anything about and these guys are much more accomplished than Tivo this particular sport. And they're fighting tooth and nail to get to the next level and try and try to take advantage is these types of opportunities. In spring training and so. I'm not saying that you shouldn't cover Tim Tebow all the ways being covered because there's a reason for it it's put eight people wanna know how he's doing he's a popular figure sports or otherwise and polarizing for some but. To me it's like you're almost doing a disservice to. Traditional baseball because again it's his right it's the Mets right for him to be going through this process by. I'm a grand scheme of things he's been a football player of the majority of his life and the fact there were making a big deal out of him getting his first in spring training seems rather reduce. It has been it's getting it's getting a lot of coverage units. You know I'd I don't wanna take I I've I admire him for following his dreams that's how I got a radio when I was 33 years old because this was a passion of mine and I decided chuck everything I had. And and start as an unpaid intern in Chicago so I appreciate someone. Following their dreams and at his is more power to him but I don't want the mets'. To put him ahead of any more deserving player in the minor leagues back guy the other guy should start. Intention at the make a decision while wanna sit on the bench in the minor leagues I wanna keep pursuing my dreams I've nothing against Tebow. I just want the Mets to do what's right by the organization. Rather than was right by Tim Tebow. Well I it's it's a Syrian Terry Collins other manager was asked about why Tebow vs some other players who were in the organization. He claimed was an age staying in that they'll bust or other players are younger and Yeltsin TiVo's now what 27 years old when he 929 years old. But the ironic thing about this just early is a coincidence but. All of their spring training games the Mets are selling Tebow Deere yet so certainly. You know Collins is gonna say publicly which you have do. Assumed that the Mets organization from a business standpoint is pushing for Tebow to get as many opportunities as possible in these games that are. Rather meaningless so that they can continue to make money off of him being part of the organization. Now the heat what's hard to about talk with a little bit we're gonna get on next segment until March Madness. But I'm looking here the upcoming schedule they have five home games upcoming and they are only memory here. Are starting tomorrow night five consecutive games every other game this Wednesday to now they have New Orleans. And a host Minnesota Portland on Sunday at 6 o'clock. Phoenix on Tuesday and Toronto winds up the home stand. A week from Thursday so this is you know they won like. Twelve to thirteen or thirteen of fourteen I think Dick Sergio the last fourteen games. At the Tripoli they made this a difficult place for teams to come in and play the apps we have to take advantage of all the while their home because you know this is this this five games. Ari critical juncture for Miami Heat and as luck as. As time winds down in the season these games become more important because there you know is only so much time here left to catch up to the teams ahead of them and move into a post season birth. Writers fifteen games left they're limited to use nine of the fifteen are all rooting as you know five game stretch is coming up. Om and you know you look at the loss last night I thought it. As expected from merits poster coached team the team played really hard and oriented towards the end you're taking a one point lead with. Just over three minutes to go on the contest by. There's two things that are very clear one. I it's difficult in the NBA to win on a back to back especially when you factor in losing an hour and traveling and all things so. That's something to note at least for Wednesday night is that the pelicans will be coming off this back to back so. That could work two heats advantage must like it did Saturday against the raptors and the other thing with the C team. Is that though they played really well and bill they've been able to win with the lights of state James Johnson or Tyler Johnson are really reap. It's very very obvious and it was very clear last night that Goran Dragic is the most important key. In the new cog here for this team and he needs to be healthy if they're going to actually get to the playoffs so. That's why when you brought up preside injury you talked about. Practice tomorrow that tomorrow's practice misery pivotal in terms of what the heat say from a medical standpoint I don't think. The heater going to be able to overcome the teams in front of them of drug which misses anymore top. Even if he's able to open as I just wonder what he told us Saturday division was Laurie you know way. That's when it was getting worse suppose it's are getting better will on the rebound say on Wednesday as its rebounding from. We hope what's already been the worst and we don't know that to be the case. You will would be. If it's if it's getting better wallets getting better is it's the old glory is well run where will they draw the line and say all right. You can play any handle some blurry vision I don't know when I'm up they know at this point just how bad it can be the with a game tips off 48 hours from now. Several wearing seat would surprise me if he wasn't able to go practice based on that portal we saw yesterday noble deceptive. We see the practice tomorrow morning. And are there any precautions they consider when we see Goran Dragic rock and some were expects or perhaps a mask of some more right than right the of the Hannibal Lecter mask or you have to face or the rip Hamilton that's right that's right yeah that's that you wore for. All those many years all right he's Greg likens I'm free go here coming up next let's we're gonna get in some. Facts and figures about March Madness as the play in games begin and then the real action begins on Thursday back after this on 79 to detect it. 790 the ticket invite you to sign your company up for the 2017 Miami Mercedes-Benz corporate run. Five K is set for Thursday night April 27 that people are.

HD two that ticket broadcasting while. From the NHR Levine studios penny jar in Levine accident attorneys 1807473. That's 1807473733. Baseball classic is under way it's. Only. Ordered by.

And into the bracket challenge for Charlotte 500 hours to enjoy an Irish brunch at 11 AM where your team colors and get 20% off your tab. This Sunday at wishing well in Boca Raton. The long side. Greg likens I'm Frito here we will take you to 10 o'clock March Madness the real games begin on Thursday. And we are armed with some stats as we head into the field of 64. Were some of the more interesting ones you've got to Europe fingertips were. Well it is Susan if there's a number of them so if you get your racquets in front of you can lease start to utilized these taken with a grain of salt because every year's different by first things first some of the basics Josh number one season never lost popular one on 28 in oh. A number one seed has lost soul in the second round five of the last seven seasons that's unbelievable I mean second or you don't you make it to the sweet sixteen Kuroda 32. Only eight number one season advance of the final four. Yet I wonder if the committee. Likes that back to their upsets. Or the fact that they say we screwed up. Yeah it's interesting because I think you know there's two destroys looked at aren't the committee insurance some pride in terms of how they seat everybody and they suppose we do a lot of work with that. At the same time you would also assume from a business standpoint it's beneficial to the one seeds would get to the final four. Because those largely have the biggest fan bases and so will travel well. What with that being said. The number one season do make it usually take advantage because twelve the last eighteen national champs have been number one seats. And there was only one time when I now wonder if this is good for business to do to upsets drive. Eyeballs to TV so to speak effect was 2008 heavily when all the only time that all four number one seeds made the final four they won the regions. Is that good for business or bad for business that I I could see it both ways that people won't upsets by the same token. Seeing those top teams all of them retreat dealey to the final four. Right BK is you'd do attract casual fans that there's a great Cinderella story. The same time the hardcore fan bases of the blue blood programs in college basketball. We're gonna flock to Mattel was our flocked to decide the final for the answers in Phoenix. If their teams make it so Horry can be yeah I can see it both ways so that's who won season two seeds are 120. And eights. All time against the number fifteens would listen there's 120 and eight yet so four of those eight losses have come the last five years. City and what do what do is that this is who verses two through two vs routine. So for those eight losses have come in the last five years case so half of them members on more recently you know you mentioned last segment. Middleton is let's say they last we Lester up ended Michigan writes about some to meet you remind pump a three seed hasn't made the final four since 2011. In the last four years in the first round five number three seeds have walks. I sohu lets you were the three Cesar UCLA's one and formatting of the others area UCLA origins of two pac twelve schools at Baylor. And then Florida State's OK so those sorts Florida's lower presented the RI this the first time all three schools right. We go through schools plus Florida gulf of corporate. You know Gulfport Gulf Coast it was a coach and as India the infield and that that earned him one like come on the only an F two million dollar USC right idea big huge contract he got Rupert winning two games let's make into the sweet sixteen the first city in that was an example the first Tommy fifteen seed made it. Past you don't they've won that first game. Every other time before then they had won the next game riders like bait they've put their all out there on the court dove says the two seed goes the first time. A fifteen seater got to the sweet sixteen to do DOD TV executives want to say back in a Florida Gulf Coast to just make it to the finals is gonna be like. Edu or Billy George Mason right when George Mason in the final fourth and they might have been in eleven see that caromed maybe that was back in 2000. They were relevancy abuse they played in the first four. Okay yeah. So they played and had the right one of the game's its user win tonight in ultimately vessel with a final 400 Jim Larranaga but I wonder saying let's say a Florida Gulf Coast League I mean it which is less known than George Mason. If they made it to the finals old adage I mean would that be a huge ratings bonanza. Or that. Push people away I mean this would it be this year's version of hoosiers. Right it's it's you know this is the question I mean you could argue. That we don't use it Corey we don't view this program this way anymore but how will win. Brad Stevens was Butler they went to back to back Nash I know that's a remarkable and then you know that clinging shot which could be. I'm that came within inches of an enormous upset. Jack or network yet who's known me from the in my tribe foreign to us he might and that's I think I think because he had things going boss. The big so yes. There is not so sweet to for a back here but there is there aren't some controversy earlier in the season when the jazz visit the Celtics. And the Celtics fans were openly. Cheering for Gordon Hayward is they know his status or advertiser Brad Sears and Jae Crowder the current starting small forward the Celtics after the game. Was not happy and invoices. The displeasure with defensive numbers are out on the starting small forward here you know what why are you rooting for somebody immunity while he's come a sense a CY PSX. Com. Here's another note the last some pac twelve team made the final four was 2008. And you've got three very prominent pac twelve teams in with top three seeds including Arizona's two seed UCLA and organ both. Three seats I actually think that. May come that drought may. Be discontinued due series and he still has a good shot six seed hasn't made the final four since 1992. And I was the fab five. Bomb over the last five years this is what I told you before army in terms of the 12512 match have been 611 matchup. It's evens of 50% of the time we see an upset in those two so if you're looking for. The place were the odds say there will be an offset it's it's either the eleventh seed of the six of the twelve suit over the firewall say about twelve seeds we're gonna have it here. He. Notes teams seeded twelve hires are in a while Dexter so yet even those those first round upsets are one thing. I and that's typically what. Transpires it is it's hard for some of these lower seed teams to advance really deep and returned it for a continued you wanna have any questions any comments about this any tips betting tips as well. By all means give us a call 786360. 0790. Is the number. And I take the team number and force since neither your team or mine made March Madness your team being Syracuse minding Indiana. I honestly at a given. A damn about the and I are both in the entirety of it out of your buy you wins at all or loses the first game it's just it's it's it's sold borrow my radar really. Yes it is you know as much as I'm disappointed that Syracuse didn't make the big dance I will be Watson ninety. In fact tomorrow night or could be distracted is insert these host Greensboro UNC Greensboro at 7 o'clock but I still doesn't matter what. Tournament therein obviously you know it bugged by most people's standards. It's make or break when it comes to you need to be near civil determined. And if you're not and it's it's a huge disappointment and it certainly news but also we watch him in the ninety if fact if both of our teams advance to quarterfinals will be facing off. And I double bad you know whatever and I few years ago bad on. Who had a better March Madness bracket and he knows a lot more about how to best ball tonight new and yet I won he picked some you took some real chances. And leadership is that yet. I gotta tell you right now miners (%expletive) in my head over a March Madness I'd volunteer to do what I did volunteer to shave my beard but is about three weeks go by I jettison that. You don't voluntarily and involuntarily. But I take the team armor before since Indiana is out of it is a northwestern I moved you're from Chicago specifically from Evanston Illinois where northwestern is. They made its tournament for the first time in school history may have played college basketball I read over hundred years but the determines what 78 years olds and nine years old. They've never made they've never remain determined and Ernie C I mean it really did well they they they lost some close games. But they did the beaten Michigan they beat Wisconsin. Right eight I think the Wisconsin in Wisconsin Michigan on a full court pass at the last second. And in their AC they've been rewarded with this coach by Chris Collins who I remember I'm showing my age here. As a high school player in note school called Bloomberg north north or don't know he's the son of Doug Collins. Played ferocious chest you duke and then was a longtime assistant ME years at duke before he spread his own wings and took the job at northwestern. And is on just splendid work there are root for them that's that's my. Cinderella story that's who I hope wins the hoping they won't but I can still root for the impossible happened. There you go data have I ever pretty attractive match of I think he has Vanderbilt in the first round under bill up fifteen losses you have ridiculous that that was one of the gripes I had with the selection committee like it's I I understand and a rotating in they got supposedly strong strict schedule in the other computers rate them well. What they're the only team in civil determine history didn't at large bid with fifteen losses. And the war with a nine seat may not not even in the play in games right so I thought that was bizarre. A couple of things to note Johnson's 85. The eight nights he game. They've split. They're 120 meetings even really so it's literally talks like it's one of the it's a fifty presents later coin flip and you've got to build the exact odds of what could happen. Com. Okay here's here's double things for if you're going to be filling out your brackets later on for number two receipts something to keep in mind. The the common knowledge now is saying that you should eliminate at least one number two seed during the first week of games. Only once in the past twenty years have we had a sweet sixteen in which all the two seeds were still alive. And you know the boy that's going out on the limits it is it's very tough to say all right I'm gonna here's number two seed I'm just gonna lop at least one off right that's that take some stones it's very diplomas series. According the odds pick exactly two and number two seeds to reach the week eight. No more no less that's precisely how it is played out in each of the past eight tournaments. You know it's easy to say an end statistics bear that out porn sting took your breath difficulty it's it's tough to do our which ones do I do statistically. To the number two seeds are going to be Golan. I sigh got to pick which ones right yes so when you got to narrow it down for those who don't know what to Cesar duke in the east. In the west it's Arizona and south it's Kentucky and in the midwest is blue oval. So I would have seen so many predictions from people and take them for what they're worth. Were a lot of people of Arizona advancing to the final four I mean more and in my that didn't. Any other to see that I've seen this are even duke was a duke Arizona Julio Symbian duke Arizona loop hole and Kentucky. I just have seen so many people were picked in Arizona come out west have Gonzaga and by the way Gonzaga. And I ran written article very interest in Arnold by Tim Reynolds of the eight people moments what are by Tim Reynolds. And he said. Anxiety enters this term with the best record in the field 321. But none of the last 24 teams to come in the NC double easy either undefeated or with just one loss. Ended up winning at all. Does not bold bode well for the zags a dozen. However some may argue today did you do in Zagat and other coach Mark Few would be happy just to make the final four as they haven't broken through to make the final four. And even though they've they've had some really good seats and had high expectations so. They could certainly still make the final four not when the whole thing and that's that would bear itself out but I think the west is the most wide open one because my. Florida State is number three seed arm. The there that's a week's three seed four seed West Virginia is this same team that got knocked out the first from a Stephen F Austin last year on Notre Dame is the five seat so. Can zag and Arizona eight I think did. Did Sega did is does have a head to head wind against Arizona earlier this year but it was win. Arizona and Avalon intruder is arguably their best player may not the best is so was there a market and is impressed that NB a prospect pictures there best overall player so. I think that's why a lot of people now favors only if those two were to meet new leader. Not a thing in Florida don't they open up in Orlando. Florida's as sort of basically a home game board a place in Orlando against East Tennessee State and Florida State in Florida golf clothes coast play each other in Orlando was well. They're all the same right and pot so you got Utley has reopened for Florida teams playing in Orlando. I you know what I eat and I'm surprised they're that close to home so to speak I mean he. I Taylor were the home games ended. My freshman year Indiana Indiana which had like nine losses I think going into this tournament. But their first two games from Bloomington their home court. And they won the two they went onto win the whole thing. And I think they beat Maryland late I 35 points in the opening game or something like that. But that was the last time teams were allowed as far as I know a lot of play at home on their home court they censorship the more weight. Some games are closer than others lot of teams up to hop on a plane. It you know it seems like Florida Florida State there are a relatively close. But since then I believe those last time anybody was allowed understandably to point on their home court for any of the games. Yes you're right I mean typically has risen some of these regions and that's largely how the committee figures things out you play close to home. But you know a lot of plane home court anymore that's completely off limits. Does Steve Kerr before Saturday night's game in San Antonio. Announced he was gonna arrest for players now he did step curry Raymond green. Klay Thompson Andre Iguodala he rested those four. And the spurs now three players from San Antonio were also not playing but those were for medical reasons. Her I believe cited rest as a reason he did this it was the second half of a back to back they'd flown in from Minnesota. A lot of people were saying when stars go on the road. And they're so when teams go on the road and their stars rest when it's not specifically for an injury but for rest. There should be consequences. And they vary. As to what they suggest whether penalties or. Pinching get their money back there are a lot of layers to this story Ian of course last time when LeBron came here couple weeks and one time last year. He did not play in either of those games. I wanna talk about that I wanna take your phone calls should there be any consequences. When the rest is cited for any reason. When stars go on the road and choose not to play or their coach's poll on the sort of say we told that later he is not going to play in that game. Number 7863600790.

And that is one of the things that if you can bid made. Maybe in expressing actually going out to Vegas like we're just talk well talk about that little bit earlier fight yet go to a sports or. The middle of day I mean the early statistics that we can probably discussed says the Rico's some of the statistics about. How much money is lost in American business are over the course of Thursday or Friday because people you're at war quantity and a few others. Or or they'd take a half day or they decide to go up for a long wants so they can watch games and have all those screens going dead by a bit this week. For those are interested in sports it's a tough one for businesses in terms of productivity. When were at the media row. She's me he gained zero tables chairs TVs and all that. And there's a TV right from the which I kind of control numbers and their little pockets a couple. Now I can see all the replay normal out he came on. But I can see the replays on the scoreboard you know any any accident either replay wanna see is going to be there so the other night. While I was watching the heat game. This was a Saturday night I had the WBZ. A wanted to put that on a one seed the Dominican Republicans UCLA and and the Dominican made a huge comeback I think they trailed five dumping. And 17 to five. But Friday night yeah I'm gonna March Madness on you know while watching the heat in front of me I'm gonna who all went as certain adding and skidded Minnesota. Are certainly in a very important game. But you don't want my eyeballs are coming off the court if there's a break in the action arm to be watching March Madness on TV no question. One of the tentative set time for Friday night between Miami Michigan State is 920. Eastern Seoul amid a second half yes the might WB kind of have one eyeball on that you might or whatever their actions of terror on what what upsets potentially you picked. In on your brackets and also what's going on the court between he admits he will. It's. Steve Kerr said he's an arrest for starters on sound Saturday night this past Saturday night. They went to San Antonio who's the second half we moved back to back. Not playing worse staff curry Klay Thompson Freeman green I agree it would now. And it would dollar sort of he heard a 101000 dollar fine by saying things like I just with the masters since. You're sort of equating it to slavery and he curt says he downplayed videos using some other language yeah using the N word and and Steve Kerr downplayed it saying that's just to Iguodala is don't take this seriously but it tournament 101000 dollar fine. That said I don't wanna go down that road now I just mention it. In passing. When LeBron didn't play here now I guess teams charge for. The they Jack up the price tickets when stars come to task no doubt you know heat and church jacked up prices. When the cavs came to town or when the warriors came to town when certain superstars. Are visiting their city the prices go up. And now. We're seeing. Suggestions from all corners. There are should be penalties either against the club or against the stars one stars opened up somebody's injured of course. What if if the spurs are coming to town tonight. It now I don't know why Leonard. But those are medical reasons org guys got an injury and it's best arresting those are medical reasons why somebody sitting out nobody is talking about back. But guys who were sitting out for quarterly equal rest. That's what's getting a Europe here and I want to I don't like people to call in and 7863160790. I you know there all sorts of suggestions should go home team. Like your LeBron came here he didn't play nordic carrier ring that night right Greg both were both didn't play. There's rats who was the second half of a back to back and people said. The answer should be given refunds or why should the heat. Be penalized and give money back for a decision made by the cavs organization whether it was made by coach Tyler new. Where the players themselves why should he be penalized for that I want summoned to convince me that that's right I also got a tweet saying. Which I think is just read Dick Gillis the MBA needs to impose a one game suspension along with their respective coach the next scheduled home game. The same players that were arrested on the road game cannot play their next home game this late the coaches think twice about pulling the rest on. Start by Popovich years ago all right my question to you to the guy tweet that to me is who the hell. Oh are you. To tell Steve Kerr Gregg Popovich were any other coach in the NBA what's best for his team how arrogant are you. The you'd think you know what's best. Are right they know more information about their stars in May be their stars need rest maybe they're coming up back to back maybe their injuries that occur that the players have. Minor ones or whatever that they you know minor aches and pains that they don't want to exact or are right and they don't wanna announce to the world. That this guy's hurting here or there and I had injuries may be the only the injury report. But nonetheless are nagging. And enough so that the coaches that you know I don't want to do this I don't wanna make it worse. By playing this guy and use or you've got the arrogance. To tell Steve Kerr Gregg Popovich or any other coach that you think you know what's best and what they're doing in the best interest of bear club. Is enough to impose a penalty because you are off painted or you spent the money will buyer beware. All right I know the players might not come to town in the best players that you pay up for might not play in the game. And you know what just you're risking the money when you purchased the ticket and you have to know these days. When coaches are armed with a more information. By saying. Enough rest can prevent injuries more information they had when Michael Jordan or Patrick Ewing era magic or Michael or might measure Garber any of those guys wait. There are little more. Statistical information that said Rask can help prevent injuries but you know what's best or you think they should be penalized. Doing what's best for their clubs and I just you would help or you'd say that I got I am so some dead set against. These suggestions that the clubs the coaches and players should be penalized or decisions they make when they're on the road. I think there's a couple of simple solutions it is the first things first is. Why are NBA teams allowed to adjust the prices depending on who the opponent it's not that might be fine if you wanna do that that's so soft the cavs come to town vs the 76ers it's the same price for all the seats. I did in the playoffs if you wanna do young Jack the prices up whatever but so that's something that needs to come down to lead put Josh of the more importantly. There's a flaw in the scheduling for the NBA I mean. Let's look at not just what happened Saturday night to. The spurs in the warriors we'll look at what happened with the heat. The heat took advantage of raptors team Saturday night there was complain on the second out of a back to back you were at the game mean that raptors team. Like you they didn't have a lot of energy no they didn't look like they've won the beat it. Right right so in the heat. You know which is this was compounded by the fact Jim the daylight saving time but. They have to play it the second item back to back in Indiana. And it's so played really hard they play they don't want to be either but they couldn't overcome the fact that that was part of it Indiana outplayed them and Goran Dragic was there are so. All the teams or deal with that you could make that argument if you're the NBA start the season a little earlier ended a little bit later. And eliminate all these back to backs because that's really the root of this if you have a game between. The date between each game. And state Kurt as an excuse to sit players for rest. Net debt to me is the bigger issue here it's not that he shouldn't be allowed to do that. And it's not that there you know completely screwing over the transit decided that they want to pay the harder and money for a it's the NBA has a flaw in their scheduling I'm not suggesting they eliminate the 82 game season because at BP should keep that. But I picked it they need to extend the season longer so we don't have so many back to back now. Wanna hear your calls in this and that call to Greg and me here the number 7863600790.
