People they've dealt with no phone calls yet we will your calls at 786360. 0790 some techsters wrote in about people annoy people they've had to deal with. All every one Greg can relate to this one the horrible drivers in South Florida every single day boys that person right. It doesn't fail but it literally every day I I tell people who don't live down here. My friends apparently minded it is literally every day something happens on the roads of South Florida there you wouldn't believe resort is extremely illegal. And it's on exaggeration every time I get in my car to drive. Something happens he sees something that you dislike meant that there wouldn't happen other places or what on earth is dispersant that. I haven't today it's not very far for me to get from more I live to the public's that I was referring to earlier right. And I saw there are two different things that I saw there were just like. Unbelievable there's a guy that out of this one neighborhood. You literally can only take a right it's only right hand turn you can't take a left because it's a big road and they've literally cut it off so. This guide despite that decided to go through and there's the area where. The oncoming traffic so so imagine the traffic it's going south this guy only has the option to go north right. The traffic is going south you have the option there there's a turn lane to take a left. But there's a huge median there an enormous media and you can't just go over this guy decided to. Goes through the area that is most of beach for the left intern and then some basic go backwards against trafford for the people are going south and then cut back through. Eight it almost got into multiple accidents including myself because I was following the rules. Josh I mean I feel like sometimes when these drivers are going around South Florida that they have. A death switched activists have you ever done to. I was driving home for our show the other night and driving westbound and I've Gary rode to get to the turnpike near the stadium and some guy came from the south. South going north and he made a left turn so he could go westbound. I mean he draw he just rolled leading care much traffic he drove in front of eastbound cars colonel west are amazing at noon accident. And he was on something because he all of a sudden I mean he'd gone to. They just weaving I he he went way ahead of me and he was ahead of me the Starwood and just weaving in out of traffic and I think of this this guy's on some guy I I. Outing wanna be anywhere within ten miles in the sky because who knows he could kill somebody and I'd if you happen to you just wish the cops were around. When guys are like that. And then they almost never seen one time I've seen a guy go flying Miami. It was on the palmetto years ago we only did make it I was covering something or doing a show I guess. And he must go a hundred. And just you know what a mile or so two miles later I saw him and he was nailed and that's the only time ever seen. And toppling in the cops the only time ever seen hop in the right place at the right time and the only guys that just as complete disregard republics it. It's scary it really is a blue what one story that sticks out to me from this is from years ago when I first moved down to South Florida Tom I was. Traveling over the seventeenth street bridge Cilic in Fort Lauderdale and was Akron that if you get down the PS there hoses two lane road. So coming down. You know you're going towards the beach. On the bottom side the other side of the bridge all the sudden I see in my rearview mirror that there is an ambulances and emergency vehicle what's coming behind me so. What do I do I pull over right employ over as far as I can into the right and the guy who was behind me. Josh laid out his foreign. Not Leon is born as if I edges you don't cut him off for something when in reality there was plenty of space between us sure but he apparently was not only was he oblivious to the emergency vehicle but he was really mad at me for pulling over. So immersed in vehicle in now little lights flashing bullet the sirens going not so it's not like anybody's surprised so I pulled over this guy laziness Warren. The aim it goes by this guy. As quickly as can be. Just gets right behind the ambulance as usual Miami gives me the finger and just tales the ambulance and just thought just bypass all the traffic. Because he's far in the ambulance which is illegals I possibly got a ticket for that followed the ambulance and and then now the ambulance called somebody opened and that they were pulled over. This guy so you hawks at me for pulling over which is what you're supposed to do and he gives me the finger on the way vials are. Well welcome to South Florida area go. There you go all right I'll go get your calls Jim and role you hold on others walk would join but quickly let's go to headlines. He's 790 the ticket DW eight XY AM South Miami WSS asset them HDT me.

Week I'll bet oldest can only leader most let's come early. Two two things were about to hear the most annoying people we had to deal with in public. Jim is in plantation welcome Jim to the ticket. You know what period and it is I went to Malaysia today and Billy had one catch here in issuance from Cuba issues from the across the U want to Wear a public season. No Wendy's. Sorry okay because it chewing him up for upkeep for mothers go to serious choose groups or the prosecution. That. Police one large surely enlarged Osce. And now one swallowed Chile and one of those golf fussy and cherish. Put in the order and she says are you wanna small and ask that no ma'am I want one large ones small. And it was it was the only. The creole speaking in warm and in the restaurant they must edit video workers and do well in the included other workers that spoke English at the ready search. And I'm big myself. First he put a little harsh and she started off in the she's we won a world saw. And then she says only 11 large policy initiatives could only long long small pump myself quality. You don't know English and mounting and myself. Why don't they put the person that knows they wanted to do it reserves. And it really kind of really healed me off because it's like eight other people are noting that sort of walk around there. And they have they are personnel and those great well we're gonna answer. Yeah and other than that who didn't in the right lane when he wanted to O'Donnell and and there are shouldn't and they were eyewitness. Enron and Terry if I can roll back yeah thanks for the call I can relate to voters saying that the I wanted to make a right to picnic at the school the other day and someone is just sitting there going straight to get to easily go on the next lane there was nobody there you go on now why I hate peppers yeah that that. Can be very frustrating armed well and then you know depending on where you are in South Florida mean that is indeed complaint there was just brought up there. You know some people speak bettering Lewis and others depending on where you or Sony that that's something good I think we all. In Connor and I wish I was. At the same time I was I was more bilingual I was my Spanish is better because a pig would would would service will downer but I don't judge you speak any Spanish no. Oh I'll vote novelist annual cookie. Management not bad jobless Americans area who were were even met this this ever happened to you does anybody use the service Bible and one its traffic updates. And I was when he practice that they going eastbound on a 36. And also traffic slowed red road. NC call 511 and they have year old has a lot of places don't waste ostensibly voice recognition software they say what state you know what will roadway Tony you're. You know DD are you looking for. Simple 836. And by the way the other day when I was trying to get 836 it just doesn't recognize. The word eight. And so that the voice the robot comes back oh you said this no. 836 and I must descend like ten times the other and it finally hung up and I must then at seven RE times today. And I pollen hung up cursing up a storm. Because their voice recognition software just stinks just spent a couple bucks upgrade because you can't recognize that BM were eight. That's a huge part of it too when you consider. 836 is a major roadway it's right I analyzed and I said Dalton expressly Gates's pick out some they get ice it's on the other the ball. Obama kicks. It's it's a great concept and it's terrible next future role is on a cell hole earlier on 790. Hey Josh record not only do so this one is age you broke the whole story about you always want a cop to be around to see what's going on yes. I pulled up to an intersection I have already there's red lighted from. When I pulled up to the intersection. I eat at opposite from me all the waiting on the red there's the Miami Dade police car. So I pulled out an intersection or stop there waiting. I looked down for a second I don't remember what I look down I don't know I look to grab my ordered the charger. I'll stop there and I your tires screeching noise and look up you know I'm kind of afraid that McCormick becoming heavy hearted hit meet. So I look up it's the kind of mob marathi who've been around. He's making a left turn. Coming at me but now he's not gonna hit anybody spinning tired. You don't make it all kind of drifting back into the car. Pat is right next to meet you went in the grass and no people's house in the grass and these stupid this right in front of a cop. I'm big in this guy's gonna get busted the cop didn't move on need to wow and he did it right in front I mean I'll. I couldn't believe could be up there even if you lost to be sure to turn the lights on or something exactly right. Right in front of so you could open a wild which a couple of them this time the couple of their. I'm being in this guy's gonna get a massive ticket that he deserves. But the way he was driving on Saturday afternoon in a busy area with you know was just kids and people all around he could've hit anybody. And a cup and care. That to me if I was Meola got nailed. The other guy dale thanks for the call appreciate it. One guy writes in nice on idiot tailgate a cop on the palmetto with no headlights or the Koppen and play the perfect. Let's stick that's. Probably could I mediators and description there I get it going I said I want to an empty classrooms study in a free period that was an older student in his forties he comes and starts making doctors' appointments on his speakerphone. Also it is good that is one of the most annoying things this day and age of people who were in public places using a speaker phone. Including in restaurants like people pursuing a boot next due in there on the speakerphone it's like. What do you think this is is this like a public forum or we wanna hear your conversations no like. That would have been the only thing or maybe more upset about what happened a public say the guys have been on speakerphone thankfully it wasn't the case was still in the other and Elena says something so's been written here with her can hear me. Canada you root beer so I just puzzling retired will not repeat on the radio you know you can't you know market. So 786360. 079.

Greg likens my co host here tonight has some tips on what to do as you were about to fill all your. Bracket Greg Oden yeah I'm really into March Madness that is to me is the best time of year for sports a love the NCAA tournament I think this is serious and awesome time or keep track of all the action so I love the breakdown of brackets look at all the matchups and everything and so. We know that even if you're casual bass will panic if you are not college dress welfare of people fill out brackets right this is the time you had good weather before. For work if you got a pool going honor may be among your friends so we want to give you some advice. Up first things first. We have the first four games starting tonight so there's two games tonight two games tomorrow. In Dayton and I like to call this the annual reminder of where true TV is on the TV guides. Because I'm what else do watch routinely I don't know why I don't usually watch true TV unless it's for these games and Izzo are tournament. But. Tonight mount Saint Mary's as we said one by one point 67. To 66 over New Orleans with the games to really keep track of Kansas State which forces set to tip off. In just a moment here and also tomorrow night you go Providence in USC deals are both eleven seats and they're gonna. Wind and and advancing did in the field of 64 this remaining since the first war became an actual thing in 2011. Every year. At least one team that has played either Tuesday or Wednesday night has gone onto win the next game and advances sector for a while so you need to pay attention. You know many would say well why don't we care about the first war well in the Wake Forest Kansas State. Providence or USC based on. The history is likely to win a game dot com Thursday or Friday so that's one thing to know I gave a bunch of us. Tasting infamous what's Lucy's last night's over wanna be repetitive. But some may ask how far do you take double digit seeds right you like your team that could pull off an upset the first round how forty take him. There's been at least one team seeded tenth or worse to survive the first weekend in thirty of the 32 years of first we demeaning getting to the sweet sixteen. Arms since the field was expanded to 64 the released three double digit seasons through sixteen for five straight years in 2010 to 2014. But there have been just three total in the past two tournaments combined. What was the greats that you mention the other night about the top. The hot seat like in the last seven years yes the last seven season is amazing only eight's number one seeds have advanced the final four. That's incredible. That boggles my mind yeah. On the committee feels about that but how they have I happen to the competition Ersan because they got a bowl. Yeah it's it's it's certainly interesting I mean listen if you get a number one seed do you have. While accounts based on what they've figured out the easiest road to the final four by. That's why they called March Madness right this is never know I'll what's going to happen us that's that's since they won arms over the double loses seats won it. Put people let the twelve seeds only wants it to twelve seeds made the sweet sixteen the same year and I was in 2008. And pull them defeated thirteen sees in the second round to get there. Also if you're looking at the further you get in the bracket what to do because oftentimes we see some upsets early on but then there. Cream rises to a top bright you'll still see though one through four seeds. Are largely the once you get to the final four however we have seen this run of dark horses make the final four. Since seeding began in 1979. Only fifteen teams seeded seventh or worse ever reached the final four. It's seven of those fifteen have done so in the past six years. So the last six years we've seen are a run most teams that are seeded seventh or worse getting to a final four including each walked each. At least one each of the past four. So think about that last year Syracuse is tense he made the final 42015. Michigan State is seven seed. 2014. We had two teams Connecticut business seven in Kentucky is an eight ball make a final four and 2013 Wichita State as a nine. Made the final four so four straight years we've had at least. One seed it's either seven the lower making the final 4 CI am my final four and has. 01 Tutu and a three hit. Yes there and when logic says that that's probably you're you're you're not only hearing on the loose the safe side but that's more likely to happen NC a seven seed getting I have Kansas duke Arizona and and sort of it through the three seed is UCL. Zach has a Lavar bowl yesterday I'm I'm his biggest fan yeah he's ordered dinner you're gonna feed into the billion dollars a wants to get through. One other note defending champs interment of Villanova. Is what do become the first and repeat as champions is University of Florida and like all five of those six or someone that 70806 or seven OK and as the overall number one seed there in very good position to do so duke in 91 a 92 the only other team to repeat since you silly won seven straight from 67 to 73. So that's something to note Villanova is looking to make history here it doesn't happen very often. And in the 32 years since the field expanded. Even though number one seeds were saying don't give the final fours much recently they've accounted for nineteen. Of the 32 championships including seven of the past ten while so. The number one seeds that do surviving gets in the final four typically finish it off which now when you make your picks. How much you go look at what you just read. That's the thing I mean I've got all those stats and minute the old one of the even march and stats that I will repeat again is that is the seeds for the five and twelve in the six love is the twelve season eleven seeds. Over the last five seasons 512 matchups and 611 matchups are even. Ten wins for the fives and sixes ten wins of its walls and eleven so it's like the underdog wins 50% of the time. I think that's a useful. Are you looking for upsets but on the whole Josh the stats are great I love to hear them because elect to be back with armed with the knowledge but the same time like. Big part of this is just have to go with your gut. So like you when you when you fill Roger bracket or how much is the stats you what did you just kind of just got a feel for California sometimes it's better not to over think tanks and so and Woolsey I I have a tough time picking a lot picks some upsets I've been a tough time getting my toe to deepen those waters and I can ask you what to your maybe your biggest of citizen the first round. Wichita State over into all sorts the second round ups and our second 02 runs right you've got a big ten's seed knocked out of the TC I do. I do pitchers are now know were you influenced at all by what I witnessed that I gave you last night it. Based the two seeds. Arm only once in the past twenty years have we had a sweet sixteen which all Tutsis were still alive. Wow well we always out why he wanted to knock down Isiah a big the biggest upset ever in the first round I'm looking right now I have 212 winning. It is as you know I've Princeton beating Notre Dame. There. And UNC Wilmington over Virginia Oca. There are also leaders to back this up and this is some free information for people out there were fill out their brackets UNC Wilmington. Is the same team if you look back at last year's bracket. They were it was a thirteen four match of their play duke in the first round okay. They gave duke all it could handle they lost by eight points to duke in the first round and they have every significant contributor back. On this year's team solid UNC Wilmington as well because oftentimes. When you look for those Cinderella stories. Other bidding to Susan which they've had a consistent Rhonda got upperclassmen. And they've been there were forced not to be skater of the tournament setting so hot I like that were UNC Wilmington I remember when Michael Short. Was still in North Carolina they came out after his junior your idol this was his sooner you're not. And they play Indiana Indiana beat him and he'll Michael Jordan deportees to stop it points to the Jordan stopper that he would ever he does in his life. That should be like on his gravestone. A certain number of bother her husband grandfather I held I held them JD eight points humorous look horrible for a Lavar ball that's right now. I realize it's deeper in fact I up rewrite dockets Greg that's that's what he's most known for it's like. At what when we talk about the miracle on ice you know they beat the Russians it was you know February October 22 1980 of memory yeah and down Mike Rosie only score the winning goal. You know with with ten minutes ago. You know he he was. The captain of the team probably not good enough to play in the NHL only said I'm not going in the NHL I'm just not you. Maybe you try maybe you re a marginal player I mean the joke the goalie Jim Craig I think lasted for so so seasons. Some guys had very good any shall careers. I think he was Smart you know you had your best nothing you do. Is gonna top what you just did you when you had a game winning goal against the Russians. I use most so Smart just don't leave that as the lasting memory. Of a you know. He's hockey point were. Syria you're saying you sit him pursuing and NATO career that and just but here here's the only argument I make against that. Is that it wasn't like unity or amateurs that's what made it such a big deal with a -- the Russians right right to got a bunch of amateurs appliances all using a little make any money jury went on speaking tours and all that but he Abrams sing like you don't like. Yes there's a part of but he was able to make money playing hockey nobody prop what you was a marginal player or barely made it above Minor League Hockey. You know you'd you'd do you really want a lasting memory of him to be. Would anybody remember that. Freddy yeah you obviously aren't sports soccer mostly me it would have been like really relate it like when you think back to him you. Everybody always recognizes him for that. Right that there. Barn on there's nothing else he would pick of when you associate. His name we were spoke puts it we seen guys hang on in other sports that just. Fleeced just retire please you know. That it now this goes back a thousand years but Willie Mays you know one of the greatest ball where's all time. When he played for the seventy seem that he needed like a walker to get the good thing to home plate and just relate Willie. Hang of what this is not how we want to remember that's why I thought I mean John Elway. He's one of those guys that it was on senator John no way do you right away only to want to soup Walters on walls it's abroad BP in that second one. Like that's the way you go. Now before we continue I have to tell you that. 790 the tickets got an all afternoon broadcast this Thursday a new orders in armor minds as a basketball tournament tips off. Come out and join Tobin will Ethan and Kirk. Beginning at 1 PM watch all the basketball action with the hooters girls score 23 ounce 2017 hooters calendar collector cup. Bill would Budweiser for only seven dollars or don't sec east were only eight hours. Visit whoever sported dot com for a location near you that's Thursday starting at 1 PM. Why can't I go to that. Now we ought to fought that would be a ton of fun. I'm going to be sitting there instead getting ready for a talk shows you that night that's true. Yeah I have to give you a disclaimer for theirs and I will be be distracted with all the it's a return to action nor promise to be a lot of fun to be on the year. Reels would have sit ups is Wilmer you curb Tom we get on the year. Plus who knows what offsets could be unfolding. While we're on the air we can talk all about it by the way. I'm Josh an NBA know which is a good one for the heat as they can you know use all helping in the standings. The Cleveland Cavaliers. Absolutely demolished. The Detroit Pistons are LeBron James all had a quick twenty minutes in the game they won 128. In 96 so we keep because of the heat and bulls now just a game back. Of the pistons for the seventh spot there half game back of the box. For the spot now just a game back of the pistons. So this is so bunched up it's exciting it's great it really is every night things are changing and it might not seem that your Matta but with a only fifteen games ago. It's a big deal and trust me I you know I talked to heat players talked to spoke. This is like the playoffs for the playoffs for them and. Every game. As as as you know so much meaning and and the next one more than this one because you're getting closer as the season or fifteen games away from the end of the season. A fifteen game is important the tenth game is even more important that the ninth gain even more important that they just the date increase with the importance with each successive game. It done yet I bigots are really accurate description there it's like the post season. Before the post season because for the Demi and let's think about this realistically I'm sure this is something we'll talk about more well over the the coming days and weeks by. To make the playoffs that it will be a tremendous accomplishment. Who knows if they're going to be able to compete in a series of the eighth seed you know probably unlikely but. Regardless I think it will be a fun. And rewarding season regardless if they can also limit the class poet pacers right now trillin knicks. By four points with just under five minutes ago it's the next sober appraisal price come back to win a threat but still we can we can root against via. Pacers for sure yet so with the knicks are just apple it's just. I don't know if you have so it was before the show which are so I mean Pat Riley made such a successful transition from coach to executive and though Jackson is just a dumpster. Really I mean it everything he does is is wrong. Yeah we're seeing it's he drafted person gets the one good thing he did and now he wants his team to play the triangle which like win out would a billion years ago. And he you know he wants his team to play in a big east force feeding this offensive system in this 2017 team like it's 1982. I saw one of the rep frank Cassell who you serious gains in times covers the Nixon and everything. I saw him three the other day with a conference tournaments going on he's a pat Riley's it will determine scouting and Phil Jackson speaking at an event that escrow.

Post and Tom joins us right now and you'll Ryan you went downstairs convenience stores gas line the air truly steps beyond convenient Tom. I was a practice with you today I we were all wondering what Dragic is I would look like I have to admit it was better considering what looked like on Sunday. So help a lot better than I thought would look. First of all I want to practice what you I would practice with some guy who didn't have a beer. After going all these years it's harder recognize be handled or prepared. Now it like it regulator and it quicker quicker and at ingratiate these beer. It's. So I had a I started growing it when the first George Bush was president that's all that I'm serious. I now. I was surprised I was shocked I was struck a good look. I've read it looked EL AB take away the gurus that it bit me you know the bruising under the guy is looked almost normal rhythm a little bit as well. But it was opened pretty much. It almost all the way so it it would make huge improvement. Rob yeah I yesterday today and you know what I don't think he would ever really that I don't think you're right it really concerns. What's the X you don't want to what is. Diagnosed that there wasn't any structural damage. If you're ready to do this while it was gonna go down I don't know it was about this stat but I don't think there was any question that is now declining real soon and I'll be doing any kind of major concern over. Once that we don't want what they found out it was nothing more than that a bruise. I think it was a little surprise of exactly or anything at least initially to protect his -- told us I don't do that I don't or grads I don't work. I'm back in or anything on my face I hate those things that just he's he's just gonna go one on it they're complete have exposed. Well. You know again that there is nothing if there was some kind of. Bones I don't know crack or I need to know you know something. More structurally. Without bones I think they probably would have been forced to. But we're at it was nothing but you know being being there and having having swelling Kirby can live look. Contusion he'd been and I'm not lying there in LP. Which is you know be they had to get that there can add. It's an hour but then you know that's that's the way it is that you we don't you deal with a correct so little maturity to a solo but it's gonna hurt so. We've got to either take a chance but. But again you know that that the best the best news possible due to construction done damaged a structural damage to itself so we can move forward and not have to worry about doing any further debt. Ridge Tom always gore implying certainly a relief for heat fans have for the organization I mean did the team has won an eight with Ottoman. This season so my questions viewers and we all know it was a very good player beau why is it that he is so important based on the way this heat team is imply. Well he he did the guy first of all those stat I think also on the only eat. Which is not the not knowing nothing notice we but it it just. You know it's up until the heart to. And sometimes those numbers are just kind of numbers but would him. It obviously he's he's he's the guy he's the head of the snake he's the guy that runs that everything goes starts with him. Early in the year everything was going you know QB we. Really. Facilitating opt out from the promote and from the top of the key then they would go into Hasan a lot now he's got a lot of help because now they don't duty and beyond. So that's you know that's one reason why we're the other night they actually to be within our capital lead would last two minutes ago we shot into the act that it was a game where. Because of all the circumstances we talked about it we were Rick did every Egan talked about it we all wrote about it but that the quick turn around about. And the back to back it meant having. The circumstances over the last Indiana game I thought that was going to be. Much easier when Caribbean and it turned out. But they were able to do it give it to hang in there without quad becomes. Because they have other guys now who can run the opulence. So but. I would say with that being said yes yes museum BP this season. Might might vote is going to be Gorky that the best player. The most consistent player all year long when you lose your best and most consistent player. You know you own some games when not in there. Tom De'Angelo joins us covers the heat for the Palm Beach post Tom I think this is DM responding to. A question by you talking about the pelicans having to adjust to the heat rather than you know saying all of that he'd have to adjust to the Twin Towers. Well you know in the middle here's Dion Waiters talking about that today saying the Republicans need to adjust to us as well it's a bigger want him. They got two bridges. When you guys. Do you do that on the floor and I wrote an academic and got the finessed. Yes and young different styles of basketball different different types of players in this could be on a to watch that game on Bolden strategy you know engineered by the coaches. What was going to be you know we every did you think about it and say I was just seemed undercover team with two with Twin Towers well. You know you look at the other and one of those guys had to cover the bat. The gravity shoots 60% from three his degree in his glass I think fourteen gain something needed to expand easing its aegis. Really turned around like a lot of guys during this. Run ins came a little bit later but he is really an integral part of the stoppage now it in the play a lot of minutes but what he's out there. He's getting some important points so. Who have a government is immediately gave us in the glow to three point line and it just doesn't that just you know that that just negates having two big guys under the so he is exactly right in when they dry. You know if they've got two guys want to collapse on beyond and outside drive kick it out to deal could. Whoever in the game just waned to near its whatever is beyond driving Goran the iceberg so look. So absolutely I think it. This is as much the new wall in the wall and having to adjust to Miami. As it is Miami having to just you know playing against 610611. And boy you know that to the top bid at the top league that top ten have been rebounding and scoring in the league but yet it that it really translated into a lot of wins and they came together. No it hasn't Thomas for the heat they need to get as many ways is possible to stripped him games last have to amount of the of the playoffs says the action begins tonight in the NBA this five game homestand. I mean I know it seems obvious but just how important is this for them to take advantage of for the five teams. Under 500 and take your business at home if they're gonna ultimately. Come to fruition is so playoff push. Well you into Baghdad and the reason why it's important they do better now or they may be told some. A little room between them and Milwaukee another game lacking behind all walked deep loss last night starting at six game western swing. And they still have gained against Golden State the clippers in that trip and at that leap forward technical lakers are. Sacramento also on that schedule. So loud they can be you know that they go to re entry may be best that I lost one immutable but they'll probably go to war. So they go five and one foreign one you know you that you get you know catwalk he didn't get a spot in that also. Is she cobbled right now this scheduled stop but they and pretty they end with the most favorable schedule weeks. With a lot of pain in his Brooklyn and Orlando and Philadelphia and I know that coach I know he played those teams he's. We know what happened with them but let's deal that they probably need to get a little bit of cushion. On audible sort because Chicago's late you know she's going to be scheduled by that possible and they have a lot of game in Washington Boston. Cleveland coming up at Memphis and they still let you know they they still may have a much tougher schedule the Lex next couple weeks and then make it easier last two weeks. So in crude for those two reasons because you're gonna have to beat out. Both of those teams Belichick beat up the pistons you have to know what those cheap play if we are assuming the pistons make it. You need to get out of the box of bubbles so you need to get slippery so those two keeps. When we talk to Dion Waiters today I as. And I asked why it's been so difficult for opponents to come in win years we have to say. As my time so. Who knows what goes on school we don't know I don't think. We'll be ready so far basically. And you know and a dog that we have fun legacy we've been doing and that's why I think the good news ticker on tour. Yeah so and US and you follow that up by saying wonder what trouble did you get a when you were opponent he would admit to anything. But at the 88 out financially to their quota and somebody. It's a somebody we treated that either gonna retire lived the number sub since it certainly is Jersey some day. EE it's the Alex it's. It's probably one of them the best that we eat out than is so each obviously. And we heard recurrent legendary stories through the years. You know most recently. He wasn't going to play by you know LeBron James disk. It is that there resting him because he needs to be he's not playing he needs rest or at the box he did that he needs to. We need to get some brass that can't claim back to back so when he gets in at 1:30 in the morning eat meat eagle summit. And sell you know I don't think he would be after ten minute heat. So. So yeah I mean there's something Cuba by. You know it did not a lot of teams are coming here and get it and you. The executive here really late in just given Mike tonight to wall exist. And won't just plain sight which is recent which is another big advantage to the heat southerly take advantage tomorrow is. They're at home tonight so while. So immediately. I'm assuming. I'm assuming well I don't actually cemented in the bleaker roster that they'll get in an oval like they were on the no you know and again stressed they can't. But but it's it but it is a lot there's pros and cons you know the DC each problem. Air miles and just what anybody in the league except probably Portland because of their geographical location well but they make up court and having a place where players. Probably have a tough time on the temptations are really great speech play as they get out. Tom my you've written about Rodney Magruder is rise in the race and rookie of the year are mighty I think we all down here really appreciate what is somebody's getting more national respect. The more teams as he starts you know is realism and not to win rookie of year but read the odds that he does he get on that first team all rookie selection. That you know they get a little bit better I don't think that's going to be difficult the heat. I think he absolutely deserves a spot on one of the first two you know first or second team how much Europe they have the second team. But it'd be tough to get honest this is it's going to be difficult because of the numbers people look at numbers that they see is his numbers are great I mean they're in there are pedestrian. And you need and is shooting percentages are. Are okay but they don't really stand out compared some of the other guys in the class and when you look at it guard especially brought in the you know is a couple of guys that. That will stand out ahead of him. But I tell you what in that they don't you know. And we killed EW that's that's not their concerns and doesn't matter to them it would be it would be great recognition for him. But what people don't achieve that we LC watching him game in game out is how key impact against. Without getting would also up a box score any guts and that the case. You know he he makes 104 threes or to a five leads to a six they usually pretty important you kind of remember the attack it is about we go to. You know election Korea nine. But you remember those three can they gonna be big threes have been brought in getting that way and that now he back it's. It's the deep factional that. Again the numbers aren't great the big guy he guards shoot above that you shouldn't percentages above their average shooting percentage by a few points. By you know guarding. You've got to LeBron and Durant and in Carmelo Anthony you know Paul George and he's really he's really harassing them what if we saw what he did with which which which frustrated. Popular in the game in Miami got him to technical. So that is that operatives that stuff that's he is. He is he epitomizes what this team what Dick he came in about this year he could be the poster child. For a guy who came from nowhere that no one knew. Eight months ago we don't have any coup was. Just get on the team and last cut traded to a starter and have become just in this this valuable piece without putting up. Big numbers is it really kind of defines this team. Tom on the way out to a little bit of humor here today at the at practice today years. Now to respond of these wanna play them here's Eric's wall stroke making fun of Goran Dragic. Don't drive go. That that tourism restaurant rocky. Got it got me open it and to hear him say what has access. It's. Pretty. There's new with a lap and the backgrounds of someone decided to ask Goran Dragic wanted to new Iraqi impression your Goran. Cut might indicate that would make. The cut we must. He's quite a bit that's it it's considered now written yeah outside of the Internet. Saturday night actually be even if the night it happened right yet and they had to Scotland had a picture of Eli Drago. Well it is. It. Lockett for whatever reason but he just I don't think he gives. Pretty good about that night I guess he could somebody could have forum but it was not a blocker. So loud yeah that that started pretty fast is it now you know again if I'm sure insulated and a lot of locker room to call bounces baseball. And it didn't worry you know would all bit the Nevada kind professional happens. It's been good each other. But this team get scenes that they bigotry Gephardt made it seem to really enjoyed being around each other topic it's it's not just lip service when we hear. Men that you're negative and get a get on generally get sent a lot of gonna happen a lot of the mark but they they certainly have a lot of fun with this and now they can trying to. Breathe a sigh of relief knowing I was one game and in any will be back. Well boogie cousins exceeded the NBA limit of sixteen tackles he gets sixteen get you suspended a game or every two after that you get suspended a game he's on nineteen right now if he somehow gets a technical against Portland tonight. He won't play tomorrow I wanna see him play tomorrow yes it'll make him tougher for the heat but I wanna see this match up. With cousins and and Davis and and white set up they're down in the middle one and how the heat employ that I'm sure going to the outside a lot I'd rather see boy cousins and make things more challenging but I think you'll make things more interesting as well. Well we don't want big Tim Johnson is it is great we know one thing that they have got is that played a helicopter that played better against the better yet. You know the better the team the better we've seen them play and it'll. No better illustrated in this 2126. For the five well Indiana's. There but around 500 vehicles more. Blocking the teaching way below 500 so lion native Moussaoui seemed to beat to beat the best team. Once they beat what they're risking twice that we see it hold it in the in the best team in the east white cells so yeah you know I I don't think job. I don't think he could say hey Pete you got to play yes that's great feat for the wealthy or just opera may. I don't think they would clean up to a competition and likely a better game they'd be a little bit more focused or just being more ready. Knowing that he's out there immediately give us about the. Tom thanks also much I'll see you tomorrow the AAA. My yeah I'd that's gonna do it for the show my thanks to tambien usual the Palm Beach post covers the heat. He play tomorrow night tip off is at 730 Greg thanks very much and you and I will be back on. On Thursday evening Trevor Marie terrific job as usual coming up next ESPN radio.
