    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

And as was announced earlier today the raiders will move to Las Vegas after getting enough votes from the NFL today to relocate to southern Nevada. The raiders received 31 of 32 votes to approve the move only 24 and needed. The dolphins were the only team to vote against the move the final four set making their debut looked at the Buick that cool kids' table. We both Gonzaga and South Carolina they face each other Saturday so one of the schools will also be reaching the finals for the first time in their school history. The other final four game pits North Carolina against Oregon. The heat of the day off today coming off last night's 1121 away loss to the Celtics who with only nine games left all the remaining contests are crucial course. Tomorrow night's game is especially so since they paced the pistons their current heater currently. Again it ahead of Detroit for the eighth and final playoff spot but Detroit has a 21 series lead now should he win even up the season series. He rate the tiebreaker tiebreaker because they have the better conference record and we got a couple of scorers Greg. Especially involving Eastern Conference teams aren't given up this year yes of the pistons who. They are the opponent tomorrow ninety's you're matching. And he's he's really right news in a tight race with the heat they're losing right now in New York against the knicks. It will play constantly twice this week the nick sleet 73 to 59 without eight minutes ago on the third quarters so that a fourteen point lead there. That could be crucial I mean were rooting against the pistons. At any given time because it's the heat don't get the win tomorrow they'll still have some cushion there. And of course they would not have. That tiebreaker scenarios go on their favor so right now we're big New York Knicks fans that's gonna change come Wednesday and Friday when he. Play against New York nets. I am and yeah news because it was so we are getting by the way the pistons. On a second half of the back to back that yes and if the travel from New York to Detroit now that that's like cross country nobody heat. They're already in Detroit so there there there are big at the data kind of acclimate themselves stood to bring in the motor city injury for that game so what they're doing Detroit now yeah. Go to Canada. A lot of people do that my body was in Detroit and India there I don't go to Windsor across the across the the water there and they've days. Go to casinos that are stuff. Here's a question for. If you are in Detroit. And you go deuce self. Was the first foreign country. First foreign country. Canada. Very good against it reaches underneath it almost like it's a hand it's copping in Detroit you know that's exactly right. It is when I was in school my roommate for three years is from Detroit so when I was insert cues. So we actually while one Thanksgiving. Drove from Syracuse. Through Canada to get back can already live record there we go we cross the border and then I got back in the US and I'm impressed NASA owes cool so yes I did. I'd I'd been asked that before actually you're on reversal and ask them. I'd died you know look at that quote you. I saw at the end of owners' meetings in Phoenix today patriots owners the headlines gonna disheartened dolphins fans. Patriots owner Robert Kraft says Tom Brady's warned the police six or seven more years. A Tom Brady August 3 turns forty. And this is all well and good appear patriots fan. Now Tom Brady except for 2008 has been remarkably healthy. Right now is the day first first game of the season appointed chief C answering that I've Bernard Pollard and he's knocked out the entire year but he's been remarkably healthy he is now. Pete Manning was dealing with neck surgeries and injuries. Nonetheless in 2013. Peyton Manning had a best year of his career ironically on pace was his coach. Mom. 5500 top yards passing 55 touchdowns. Two years later he's out of the week was that 2013 season ends. Again dealing with the injuries the right now that breed he doesn't have. But what Greg went father time and I'm not trying to be flippant about this when he catches up to you you can just all off with. Sodium quickly and three looks great and look at what he had 28. Eight touchdowns two picks 27 into something like that it was a remarkable regular season and he missed two emas war games of course because the suspension. Point one time catches up to him and you know it it might be just deterioration of skills or involving injuries. When it catches up I get it the change happens precipitously. Yeah it does for anybody who's not an performance enhancing drugs threatening. That's right because they do but I always think back to a baseball that Barry Bonds and some of those guys were. They should've at that clip of boss steeply but they were able to keep going but. Pay attention when you say that. I think and the surfers dolphins fans should be scared when they hear that because Brady is his brand. Really a picture excellence in terms of you know now having a record five Super Bowl wins. And dominating the division the way the patriots have with him at the Helm at the same time he's forty years old. It plays six or seven more years I think that actually a benefit to the dolphins and the rest CC's position what he can keep this up into his mid forties. Like I know that Robert Kraft is just saying that and I know the Brady has said before he wants to play so he's what 45 were or even later he's in great shape quick Kama. He's not a real play. This well. For that much longer. We would never find out that these discussions took place behind closed doors but suppose he ebbs off he still good not great. And they're paying a lot of money no not as you know their he's he's taken. Less money to stay there. What they're paying him a lot of money. You pick would there ever be a point I'm talking about treating breathed a word they would say prior early time it's it's it's time OK it's just. He'll say the sentence tomb of the he's just not where the money's getting but it it did they got a time when there since diminishing returns. Would you rather go the younger with the ever say that tomb behind closed doors. You would hope that they can handle it. In a respectful way professional waited but that can be real sensitive because you look at the great players in any sports history right any any sport. Part of what makes him some grade is not just their ability but their competitive nature and their drive to be depressed. And I would imagine it be difficult for a Tom Brady be here hey you don't have anymore. When you've got to kind of recognizing yourself firstly look at what happened in Green Bay would reform reform at a top right right he didn't wanna surrender the title of starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers to Aaron Rodgers. And he still had some we we found out he still had a couple good years left until last year that your rigor toast 33 touchdown seven picks when he played who like write to me he was excellent and let them almost to a Super Bowl. I lost in that their conference title game against the New Orleans Saints which is now. Infamous because of the bounty gate and everything by. And that's that's typical conversation to have when I believe they can tell though would you just say maybe go to them first well not going to embarrass himself. I guess we got to be that bad to the same time the other thing that I thought about when you brought up this story. He's at how many years how many years is Jimmie to Rob Lowe did just sit behind a row he's. He's giving a free agent this coming year but you don't you write well is it going to be before he gets is actual Jan Wald the deep. The room the raiders the patriots have a big decision to make because he will be a free agent do you do you. Yeah there's no way in hell you can franchise a backup quarterback. You just can't do that no not now with the cost of record in no way you'd be paying over twenty million dollars ironically he could make more than three. Ike's outer I don't breeze among really is make it eighteen million a year. He's making it less for the betterment of the team right right and so their there's no way in hell they can pick grapple more but if you franchise and they would have to. Here's what I think is gonna happen I think they're gonna. They're gonna wait until training camp and then our media around draft time. Intrigue rappel they don't trade him at the draft. And maybe Cleveland is still going to be in play form. Then I think there to treat him during training camp could usually. Not always usually there is a starting quarterback that goes out. And even if you not a team right on the cusp of the playoffs grapple still young enough so he could say all right we will treat form signed into would deal. And he will be our long term quarterback other risks and and he weighed. I game and a half before he got hurt against the dolphins. And then. He outplayed us so much for snaps the rest of the year are you holy really willing to commit that the tens of millions of dollars in guaranteed money that would take to sign him up. That's a tough one right. I mean acting dead or be difficult. They don't I to meet you part of it depends on how much street to have NC Jacoby percent to came in after him and still won games as well I'd have poorer. The Bill Parcells. Who you know still nearly count and in that part of that Belichick. A group knowing mean delta come emerge from under Parcells wings. It was a Bill Parcells really likes to go percent so I I do wonder if behind the scenes if they value him ever is focused on drop low. I do think. Depending on how they feel about Brady and his actual longevity would be foolish limited and Brady's going to be around for another two to three years be forced them not to trick Rockwell. What you think. Yes absolutely and if you rafter percent of third round like they did the navy's you figure he's the guy getting good return on Rob Lowe too we can't win. I Texan wiry talking football in March its baseball seasons here we football for August oh. Is every time I bring up baseball I get more tax saying don't talk peace. I loves it. We're we're you know we're dharma one person right so I mean we should talk a you know we're we're gonna shift gears here forget baseball for a second put the heat right now. It's like. What injuries crippled them at first and they were eleven and thirty I mean that the weather to thirty record they had lead together very well they hadn't jelled. Players have since amber if you can see James Johnson doing what he was doing in the first 41 games. What he's doing right now Dion Waiters of Torre got hurt wasn't the Dion Waiters that we saw. Prior to the sprain ankle and and that the chemistry. That he and Dragic have in that backcourt you know the cold guys 7-Eleven and and a great chemistry among them. And their ability to drive and now we score the basket but kick it out makes for great spacing as well. And for a wild and you know during those couple months injuries really did affect them they did they were. Pretty healthy and now they played them the biggest thing Greg is that sprained ankle Dion Waiters that that's sprained left ankle. I'll ask you what I ask will I mean are you. Surprise these seem to miss him as much as they do any statement you never would have made at beginning of the year. And it would have made it. Two months ago right in the pro and admitted month month and a half ago. Blood. I am surprised based on those expectations but not based on the way we've seen him play over the stretch in which they've. Catapulted themselves back into a playoff spot because. He's been crucial and you know. I think it's very telling you when we're interviewing. They had been interviewed you you mentioned. The goal on drug it's quote from last night in which he flat out said yeah we need somebody else who can get to the hole. Penetrate and open things up for everyone here and it's no coincidence that Goran Dragic is going through scoring slump in my opinion because he's had to be. Someone who has to initiate offense much more for himself because you look at that starting lineup. Josh Richardson played all right last night went and Babbitt a couple of shots which is good but otherwise in Magruder. And Whiteside Whiteside deal with the zones things solich who was reliable from scoring standpoint and a starting lineup just try PH and what do they do with the Celtics put the arguably the best. Guard defender in the league on. The put Avery Bradley on he was all over the entire game. And when you don't have that safety valve when it comes Dion Waiters who can handle a physical defender the drug which is is in a bad place. It's when the heat started this street just before starting they started on January 17 going into that game. And the 24 or 26 in the NBA in three point shooting. After that they caught fire for for two months they were the number 13 point shooting team they were shooting like 41%. I don't have that this the exact stats opponent who I think I'm right over the last four games of which we've lost three of them. I think they're 25 of the 82 from beyond the arc. I just in the met 30% and now that that's crush them right now because that was such a steeple. Of one of the many reasons why they were successful was their ability to shoot from beyond New York. And one of the big talking points regarding hurt Spoelstra his candidacy for coach of the year you brought this up earlier the lack of all stars on the roster right. But I think what we're learning pretty quickly it's very evident with these injuries is that if you don't have all stars that you need to have. The sum of your parts together because otherwise there's very little margin for year. You know you look at like Toronto may lose an all star in Kyle Lowry put and they got a fellow all star in the backcourt DeMar DeRozan who steps up his game and keeps him in the top four. In the conference standings the heat. May make this push with everybody healthy for the most part you know save a game from dry mutual or are a few days from Willie Reid. And you don't Tyler Johnson and James Johnson missed the Cleveland game but otherwise for the most part they've been really healthy. You miss some time contributor elect waiters when you don't have all star talent around him. It just goes to show you that the margin for error for this heat team the way they're currently constructed. Very very slow in order to sorrow we come back does this. I I imagine I know was as a person recovers the team I imagine listeners might do the same way question is whether he'd feel. Seeing how they've been without Dion Waiters does this give the team more of a sense of urgency perhaps signed him in the offseason they see what they've been like. Small sample size to be sure what they've been like without. You know we'll talk about that sense at. After it he came on the ticket to a into the whole existence so poor at par and post game show exactly. The rest upon the deep sponsored by Kabul flag from world of South Florida great place to see him and his associates MT here every. Am a very chic on eight and seven. 10431043. DH DT on the ticket. So I don't know productivity insider. Listen for sex statue of camera on the ticket Monday mornings in the 7 AM hour and after every he wins that sponsored by hooters. Play hooky a new owners wash all the basketball action with the hooters girls score 23 ounce 2017 hooters calendar collector call filled with Budweiser for only seven dollars. Or dose techies were only eight Fox Business who supported dot com total location near you listen to sexy stats and AM 790. And FM 10432. To the ticket. You know Dion Waiters is playing on a 33 and a half million dollar deal means us an option. For about the same amount certainly he's not gonna exercise that option if he's gonna become a free agent and the question is with the heat who are expected to have him out. I'm in the neighborhood again about 44 million dollars underneath the cap. Assuming the jury Chris Bosh which they will run they will bomb. I need. T I would think they would try it pits within the possibility within their price range to sign aboard two guys in particular James Johnson. And Dion Waiters. Away I mean it did this one think shows he employing so well since he came back his you know from his groin injury he missed twenty games because the groin injury. And and he came back and since then he's played so well innings jelled so well with corn Rogge general guy they thought about dealing a number of calls conversations. There were had before all is winning streak started to deal dry if I don't you don't five year 85 million dollar deal how reasonable does that look right now. The would waiters it's the it's a tiny sample size Greg it's four games what does this give the heat a snapshot of what the will be like without him once again. And does this maybe put a full court press on Riley and his lieutenants to try to do the best they can to bring Dion back into the pool. Yeah it's really interesting. First on the surface I would say yes bit Dion Waiters is proved his worth. Daunting that I would say about this is as we've been examining Eric's pollsters candidacy for coach of the year. I think one of the things that really fits sees his skill set and fits too. His overall resonate is the fact that he takes the parts that he has. And determines the devises the best team offensively defensively to utilize those parks which is what a great coach is supposed to do enough so you do wonder. If waiters wasn't around and if there were different pieces on this roster moving ahead. You know would they play the same style basketball we know that targets likes to push the ball court especially is getting in the lane and being able to ticket voucher would be don't have all the three point shooters moving forward and maybe. Maybe they run a different sell off it's a maybe winners presence isn't as valuable read his presence is primary now because. They custom fit there attack to have him and Dragic handling the ball and setting things up for everybody but it's a late Griffin. Decides he wants to test out the free agent market and come to Miami and would you rather have camera or your rather have waiters and then would you be willing to. Custom fit the offense around having a guy in the post throughout the plays alongside on some whites. Now a whale is gonna get his money right regardless of where it was easing has money but for guys that. Are looking to get that better deal may be guys that you'll they've been under utilized are undervalued. I think Spoelstra is create a magnet come for the heat come to the heat's. NN and let Eric and his staff get a hold of you and you can leave here possibly a lot more money your pocket. Yeah I mean and we're gonna have some great examples of that this offseason as your alluding to. I do wonder though that if the heat had to prioritize one of the other waiters or Johnson. They were going I would say this holds Johnson was he job when he is 29 when nine sentinel when he turns thirty waiters is 2.5 east 45 and so. Mark my point is that look up Charleston and I don't want to assume anything negatively about either of these two guys. But we see it many times and sports Josh where. Player pitchers a contract year or a year in which they know they have to. Put forth their best foot forward in order to impress people trying to that payday. Johnson has bounced around the NBA equipment he's nearing thirty years older you know what he's he turned thirty last month OPEC scenario starter yet so. I would look at him and say a bit if I had to choose during the two I probably prefer waiter seized 45. Use a highly rated draft pick the heat finally have him. In he's in their system writes they know that he complained in the system that got him in great shape. I see him is having a greater upside moving forward being able to improve and Johnson out Johnson what he's done this year. In terms of his versatility usability appoint appoint power forward position has incurred in his point point center for a year and great defense and right there and I don't wanna take anything away from that but if you're looking at the two can only pick one. I'd have to lean towards waiters she's younger has more upside and I I think that's the ultimate thing he can continue to get better and has played so well with truck. Question is and Johnson has said he wants the state your question is can they re at a price. Will you give a discount I don't know why you may be easy one to take a little bit less money per the comparable list and the satisfaction of playing here under Spoelstra. And in the tutelage of Spoelstra as coaches get this deal he's never done veteran's career than he's doing right now. Corrects and I think it he's been around long enough to fully appreciate that. He knows he's been in other places he knows that easy given miss utilized or maybe his body hasn't been in the right shape. Where he should be on a court all the time and he's found a nice combination nosy I think my mini Anthony chain that wrote a piece of out him. You know I don't remember seeing him when he Keener play for Toronto last year it was a Manny Manny Navarro wrote may lose many admits that he lost. So selling dogs are 38 pounds he's been your voice to 75 right. And he's now down at the way when those articles were 230 237. Amusement or any moral and our I don't wanna give the wrong credit it and he talked about how you. Be bold James Johnson Wayne Ellington. The BC apparently in the training room have this now famous iPad. In which it take before after pictures posted on that for me. I'm not I'm a McDonald's ninety pound billion products you could be on there is life you're flipping through DC James Johnson Wayne Ellington just read merry go on blood they have this as resources for motivation were like hey he refers get you to the Miami Heat. The port put your nor program this is what you look like take pressure off for taken the picture and then we've put you to lose the rigors of the months of hard work. And all of a sudden you know what forty pounds later so Josh Johnson is reaping the benefits. Of his brand new bought. Came jets. That via. That last former pitcher we're just doesn't for a pitcher also a quarterback in the NFL and I just basic combined viewing James John that's right. Or a hum. I'd say the story of of Josh Freeman never hear the story. Quarterback Altman's former American played for Tampa did well for Tampa that was a boss with the vikings dolphins rademan training camp now and I'm apropos now when I remember this so he he finally. Lead in the I think in the in the final pre season game and he was a disaster. This is it. And I want to always to meet him because our names are so close he's Freeman and there's no. I wanted to meet him so in that final pre season game. I went up to him and I said listen since you've been in the apple I've always wanted to meet you my name is Annie and irrational trash Friedman. My jaw dropped to hit the ground and solicit help held you know. He said because the media relations department showed us photos and names. Of the people who regularly cover the team. And I saw her name and I want to do you ever since oh ourselves now sprinkle and I've never seen him since I believe he's out of the league he played for some dink independent team and did terrible for them. Know that the nicest thing about Josh Freeman is that I found him to be exact same way a really sharp. They seem like a really sharp intelligent guy and really nice to deal with it is brief time with the dolphins and I was. He's played terribly so that's the bottom line but I felt bad because I have a direction with a took a look man I I kind of Rupert. This gig is over is like that. And so a bottom line is we don't perform on the football field they're in April cut you losers were ultimately did my. I'm glad I'm glad you found the the same conclusion would Josh Freeman he it was a nice guy. A little let's get back to the NBA for second 'cause we're watching you know on and on TNT years the spurs hosting the cabs. Right now an excuse me. At halftime. San Antonio Luiz Cleveland 64 fifth either crushing and right now of forty. It's a decisive fifty tournaments for boy or both misspeak in the late 64 to forty Europe by 24 and a half. You told me that the cavs in the last eighteen games or seven and eight. If this continues in the what are they have the clad in cavs right now our 47 and tweet by say ten games remaining. If the indices in that they've been playing just under five pro ball suppose they if the goal five and five in the last. You know ten games so they're twelve and thirteen. Ending the regular season in a thought if you will. You said earlier in the show video right now prisoner in a virtual tie with the Boston Celtics. A top Eastern Conference music you can figure ruling mattered. To Cleveland whether or not they have home court advantage or not. Put a breakaway and a strong mentally is they probably are having bend to the two most recent finals coming back for a 31 deficit last year against the team that'll hold held holds the single season win record at 73. And the last two games were on that court on the on the Golden State's court. As confident as they may be. You think that affects them going into the off season if the end this a hole in the long I'm were talking if they go five by over the last ten games. You're talking to 45 games where they've been playing. Right around five from a ball actually a little bit below what I'm that's almost a third of the season yeah adding any injuries to Irving and love. Our charge to it to love and JR Smith. But nonetheless for a team that talented you know that's that's terrible record. You would have to believe human nature would indicate that it would weigh on you right you wanna will be playing your best basketball don't come the playoffs but at the same time. I mean when the brawl was down here that of what was the first year when Dirk rose one MVP of the bulls with a top seed in the east right here. He will admitted the two seed with the Big Three and they still knocked off the bulls' momentum going to be MB finals sort it LeBron has learned. Water to recede yes you prefer to have home court advantage in the Eastern Conference finals but it's not the end of the world if you do believe that you got the best team. And I still think that as long as doesn't matter who it is. As long as Cleveland Cavaliers could be you know. Brooklyn nets if they had LeBron James. I I have a hard time betting against them. Making not making the NBA finals because there's always a bronze we gonna take Elliot yeah Boston might be the one team you maybe I still don't think that it. Cleveland as its current they're currently constructed even if a guy goes out. There's laws is not LeBron I still think the cavs get out of Eastern Conference and play any MB finals. You know ratings I'm sure way up is is that good news have the same team again and again and again I mean. It's it's LeBron its eyeballs are going to be were ever LeBron plays he's the one of the absolute. By far one of the best players that's ever played the game we all can agree on that when you. A personal feelings about the now. But at some point you like new blood into events do you like. And I'll segue into college per second. Oregon and South Carolina in the final war or would you rather of had somebody else come it may be the top seeds in their. The more blue blood yeah. The way put it yeah I mean Reich is and you would you know out of the midwest it would add Kansas beat organ price right in and build overdue right and and have those teams representing you know the college pastoral landscape in the final four. I don't mind I like the change alike these stories and I don't like defected to Syria to newcomers and another team as a vendor for seventy years. To go against. The team ironically North Carolina has had the most final four appearances in NCAA history twenty net so I think that contrast is a pretty juicy storyline. Merrill I was reading emerging from this weekend. The ratings of this point have been tremendous. Despite the fact that you don't have. The dukes and the Villanova is. And you know you silly it was knocked on the sweet sixteen and some of the big name movable was knocked out early giving some of the big name higher seeded teams. More they are in the sweet sixteen emulated so. For some reason it's resonating with people. The MBA it's interesting because. When you look. Over the course of last what thirty years or so that you had. You don't vote I guess you go back to the in the ninety's the bulls won six out of eight. Championships than any Iran with this parade it was three bulls two rockets three goals rated C had you don't. Teams winning multiple championships you do in the spurs get in the mix. And then the only in the 2000 you've got in the pistons get one but a lot of the lakers right in in the day he get one. And and the spurs are back involved. And Celtics are in there is Celtics are in their wants and then more recently the mavericks finally got there's there was a heat a couple times and the spurs again. And now finally receive the warriors and the cavs this is just. The potential for thirty year old they they make the finals. It's not like these two teams dominating for ten years. So I don't if this continues for the next few years that consumer might be an issue but I don't have a problem with those potentially seeing that same matchup three years and I'm I think people love. The NCAA tournament to have upsets they love seeing. They were knocked off but then when it comes to the final for the finals I Warner the if there's any. Regret. Buyer's remorse if you will that you know he built an overture is not they're trying to repeat or read number two seeded duke. You know is is knocked off the perch I wonder are you upset is great but now you've got to watch the consequence. Of that upset. And I think that if you look at the comparison between MBA and the NCAA tournament. Assuming people stay healthy which is and always there's been suing people stay healthy for the most part you get the best teams in the finals these are the course of seven game series. There is and that chance you have a one game scenario. Any college's forty minutes and if Kansas suddenly has a terrible shooting game and doesn't play the way they've played. In any of the other games leading up to that in the tournament we see them not make the final foreign organ represented the midwest when you say. Bad shooting game I mean look at Florida yesterday we've been die by the 37 of twelve. From three point range to start the first hurt our chart in the first half. All for fourteen the second half and they just couldn't make it big it's like would that they shrunk the rim or something. And the strange thing is that that seems to be the way a lot of teams have played in South Carolina miss turner of recoveries that second half that's were South Carolina has thrived in the gators. It was eerily reminiscent of their game in Colombia earlier this season and SEC play and where did they wait. Really ice cold the second happened South Carolina won but. Getting back to the point valuable Ron in the cavs have a bad team in the game NBA playoffs not a big deal not the warriors want to set I had game not a big deal. What if Kansas or do or removal or Arizona has an off night then suddenly their hopes are absolutely dash to a national I think. One reason that's one reason say the the the NCAA tournament is greater readers one and on there's no margin for our football playoffs the same way I mean hockey baseball basketball they're all. Multiple of seven game series at fuel seven match series. But football playoffs NCAA your dual mandate the opposite your Washington next week on TV. That's why aren't they determine always delivers and even though I was disappointed they want you disappointed that that the first day. You know that first Thursday and Friday first round of the tournament didn't deliver the upsets of we'd found assumed were going to occur. It's more than made up port as the rounds of progress did you talk to your buddies and they ought to Vegas is Edgar Greg used to bought every year to Vegas with his buddies for the first couple of days the term that they go. It went yeah and Attica where they are there any interesting stories. You know what I think it was probably of all years from me not to go out there is a good one because. You know they go out there in the place of prints and you know the they have fun with it went when you don't have the major upsets user world really mean. You had that the biggest of distort a couple eleven seeds won but that wasn't really upset that by by most people standards Middle Tennessee State. They've won in the first from a data being favored for the game started against Minnesota so. The didn't have the same excitement to get they would have been there this past weekend Rihanna a couple short of as a reader for Florida over that last sequence between North Carolina Kentucky who knows where those great noses I mean. EE fuel for the Kentucky pins they make it three pointers they they. They baby and tied they tied it up yes and then here comes days as you say Roy Williams no timeout guys. Oh it's on you. 041. Passed down there whom makes the shot and may makes a check book committee hero. For the for the Tar Heels who would have thought opinion great stories that he walked in the class just hours later walked to class this morning at 8 AM in some cues in his class documented and post the video. It the entire class stood up and him a standing over race that had the coolest. I heard somebody say today that they hope he doesn't have a girlfriend is and he can reap the benefits so I'm bypasses and if you know sometimes they veto they've good gave in the next week paid date the not so good.

Back to seven pay the ticket alongside Greg likens Frito here man so who works for channel ten as human sun sports the heat broadcast on fox works there were heat pre imposed game. And he joins us now on the Ol Ryan Pugh went downstairs convenience stores gas on their truly steps. Beyond convene you will think particular time my Cooper likens me appreciate it. It so Dion Waiters since he's been out the spacing has been different Rogge inches performances of Boroff he's hurt as well he's got a bad put. But right now they're at a bit of a downward spin right now they've lost three or four games did you think Dragic his absence. Would be so much right now. I think adding you look at big picture guys that security now evident by you without. If you really look back to the Ford younger occurred this stretch of twenty games in a row with a groin injury. Did not have been really played well for about a week and he actually looked recruits are in the quarter egos out the continue to struggle he comes back they start by would turn their orbit but on the screen you'll. I'm not surprised if shortly. I'm really at a hole but this organs stretched a bit too into out of it you know before getting to be stretched out toward New York couple games. Unfortunate for them they lost you know real foreign. It's absolutely fishing guys worried or ever will be checked recoup the bracket Peter if you could say that our law caught the playoffs that wall ball off of five or six eager. Whatever the case may be in the end. Well everyone in the NBA subject to go through us rough stretch shooting the ball ground drug inches at a shooting slump over the last four games. Do you when you look at that is edges are coincidental timing or do you think did waiters act since has a big impact on that as well. Exit question Greg here you look at it. They are needed. This simply twenty shots that he would probably make it Bernanke that a lot like lay out there and he's also not that should do well or you want something done. You know Corey during the season he's been what the district fortunately. Not the case the last four ancient got open looks I think those various sympathy there Christie you know because I think what's going on as he's. There's so much for and they are so much going on would seem to try to find the right position now as whether it be to create a shop forms of fortifying Gupta for someone else you know went beyond on the court debate here yet. Two similar players already. And a few for Erica White covering white concentrating on when you know when target skip to load up there he can hit their three. We try to pay somebody gets ready to kick out to guarded green or you could find the outdoors it would either side. So I think that the combination by the department of idol with just a coincidence. I think maybe Cornish try to do shall march. That right now just incidents include a little bit of fog and it doesn't surprise me that it would be about if you look at the record with boats to balanced way. It's January 1 and when there are important not only in winning games. But their numbers are all that which are not one point gain force five assists should be around 50% I mean it's sort of what that duo has done for such a long stretch now. And neither will Mansour joins us since Deion has been out these four names Dragic is averaging fourteen point eight points. I'm just 33 point 8% shooting weighed down from one was when he's playing with Dion Waiters and here's a quote by Goran Dragic. It's very different we don't have a second ball handler who can get inside the paint create for others it's hard no rhythm right now for me so certainly he acknowledges the struggles. Right now though well I mean. Injuries which plagued the team earlier and we don't wasn't part of one of the reasons they start on 1130 then leave the health was pretty good guys are coming back injuries their dual well. And other they're hitting them at a worse time waiters has a sprained ankle are now. Right now the last ten games this Whiteside has played very well but he is you know cap that he and which hurt some. Right now he's fighting a spring ankle now we find out the Goran Dragic. As of fort that hurt so badly he they've got to cut a hole in the side in addition to just so we can play with less pain. Yeah it it goes to show you how old Lleyton restaurant didn't help. These guys have been in and I know you gotta talk I'd settle or. It's got its post dot. The reality injuries happen. Unfortunately he beat him to be happy to walk and bend and other teams and the truth is if you don't have that warns superstar. To carry that you know they don't. Not what those teams don't go around an elite players they have a lot of very good players love all current players. And two cracked or guys in order a sob who could be Ulster are level. What they're not again it's not like having Russell Westbrook Kevin Durant stepped Curry's little bit differently do kind of in unison. I. I think it would beyond two that you look at his aggression you know we saw the other night either a couple of these close games this. Wallach you know a lot of players produced play well at a really improved Peter bulldogs beat a team to beat a warm guy. That chuck had that quality in of the game but he's not afraid that their speech out of that big bold black I thought it was won only one host six. It was a big block by Josh rich and they're going the other way. And the offense over quarter 22 is just this cup spot later an advantage in change jobs like order that you know he could certainly hit but he just what I don't rid of the bad. So exit the rebound you know direct access spot were Yana were hacked it back riding a pink file. He exciting couple wide open they hit a shot back. Bet that we see he'd. But an injury to be part of regard but there aren't any excuses injuries are part of everybody they've got back against whoever doubt there are probably it would probably let it occur those. Could solidify that spot. Well the fact it is you say and I agree with you that they don't have any superstars. Makes the job it's always doing even more impressive when you agree. A 100% of what whatever is done with this roster that you know etiquette it's not to discredit the players but. If you look at their free agents went inside and created no one thought oh my goodness sort of you know or party's gotten there yet you guys all are who you hold. That lady. And I had no security can be this kind of player you hope that they'll contribute the Big Easy duplicate that he could read it it. You know can spot the gander stretches. Out and went off. They he you're within god. Those changes become a political player Jonas is looking like an all star player over in saint of January. The fabric consistently hitting threes without errors during the stretch. And went out and number careers keeping you look at what he's got a god. Eight you've got to credit smaller there's just nowhere Robert watts you'll look like credit or you say it's all part of this growing need ample leading. The job he's thought it's one of the best coach just got done because they get this he has no business being essentially the best team in the NBA degenerate. Well I want to ask you about the last night's game you know four point loss blood through the final twenty seconds is specifically. That goaltending call. That winning guesses on Whiteside Mickey and you go from a Marcus Smart meters switch would have been a three point game with twenty seconds to go Spoelstra called a timeout who knows what could happen there. To a four point game. Completely changed the complexion what was your take on that whole situation. I'm job applicant could bring about like your typical fan watchable and yet the terrible call at you know. In the spirit will be acceptable it is the Koppel called at the all big hit the river wouldn't look at the replays. Mostly it was so beautiful. But what jobs when the vehicle over quite hear what I kind of understand if that's not why the rules maybe it's not for situations like that really situations where. The ball is still well there has checked potentially calling it. In this case it was clear the ball wasn't going in and especially critical work I dark there's not actually crashed the workers are up just vehemently go regardless. If you could sit aside should waited actually taken just in a bad guy that. But the reality is he jumps up its backcourt the ball back going in it was a hot spot to call back call you don't get it. One of those things where you use it at all sports he added but you'll note but it's a basic baseball but the try to change output. Think it kind of out big coal also contributed Berkett call. I bought it back body could have easily gone away you know what would of complain. But the reality is your idea that the riveted the rest critical attitude adequate for the eat you had a great change it watch it you you talk about four point game. To a three point game that's a huge difference when you've got twenty seconds left. Will Mansour joins us well I thought the heat might catch a break in the final four games of the season in order they play Toronto Washington Cleveland. And Washington again thinking that maybe those top seeds would be sick and they wouldn't be. Altered with the way general lost the Euro he figured maybe those teams will rest their starters. But there are so bunched together Cleveland in the Celtics are tied at the top of the conference Washington to have games off the pace and the rappers just a game behind Washington. These teams might play their starter because they they're sold bond shop and every game even up to the last one might mean something as our seeding goes. Yeah I agree your outlook in effect today and I think you'll either you know why export our help. Out here I really don't I think to capture kind of Rivera world right value and it's been a couple bottles are all they want last year LeBron knows what it's like the playoffs. He brings a water to see I really don't see the cast is taking this is too serious down the stretch where. Palpable lack gain that would play every parent I'd do it seems like Washington it's rocks to who we care about feeding him beater teams that are not corporate plan also want a charter quarter. And any shortcut you could take they're they're gonna wanna take I think more poorly if you look at the with the schedule without guards you've got sport gains. You know you've got these next when you go to a Detroit. Enter a New York are what your needs are what Denver ass hole. I hate hearing it in put this bluntly but I think that you got a little for those games I think if you win those Ford underwent orbit twisted Hulk opened mixer and and instead present solid knee but battled weight from Paul was margin would hope that that law trip you get the old order you to play what went. You win those four games I your position where the two would re enter into one of former two and three in those parking stretch Josh talked about when we act shortly. Get to the playoffs. It did happen wouldn't this oil obviously their weight since they don't but if it. The way the schedules and put those couple points in those games they keep eating comfort to those teams. I think he got charity care businesses exporting that they're very winnable games for this team that they play again don't turn the ball over play the way to complain. And it got us started three and then because they've got the worst part of the seat at a truck stop. We know you had Oregon and South Carolina the final four right. Of course. If they parted the art direction all over the I had a little more excited or ad market or. What. You know how Long Will not alone it. I is pretty cool string Martin though I mean he I think his last here's a Kosher Greg you looked up and for the show 99 that's relatively recently due within the last twenty years. And here's a local high school coach who's now in the final four. There are parts francs last year was my first you're that your offense our remember the days of break Eric and you know obviously yet so what's the test on your lower level high schools banks. And you eat your guys were not so talk about this data is very out of its grew up humanize it Q what does it the bottle or to head coach like it had its share of critics who bad. Chuck the result that's not a you know get it but when it comes down to was to take a team like not to let that literally has no history count fastball not that kind of history. A political follow court take down due couldn't get to this or where they are now you know. It's pretty amazing your battery is great dispute could lead to extort a lot of this or the heart of a job. Well thanks so much for taking the time to c'mon we appreciate it. Well that's gonna do it appreciate will Manso joining us to talk about some heat. Greg likens thank you very much hue and I'll be back on Thursday the only other night wore on this week is there are heat games Tuesday Wednesday and Friday.
