Believe they good evening folks, thanks for hanging out with us for another episode of the sand a boot first podcast coming to you live from beautiful downtown will the Grove, from the lovely crack belt production studios.

We got the man behind the glass, nate boss, keeping us on the air. You without further ado. We've got Marcus grant from the NFL network. Marcus, we got you. Thanks for giving us some time. We know you're a busy man doing the NFL fantasy live. Let's just let to get into it. I know. Do you guys got some questions? I definitely got. I've got a list of questions. We're just going to flow with it, all right. So, the first thing I want to know is, when you get into a fantasy league with family and friends, do they put a handicap on you? Do they make you pick last? Do they make you pick starting in the fifth round? Do they allow you to play? They charge you more? I got more invitations to more fantasy. I knew that was going to be one of my other questions. How many leagues do you get in generally each season? Good, you got a question. You at least when any all right, all right, by yeah. Right. So, Marcus, I'm a gambling are there a gambling podcast? I teach people about gambling. Did you gamble at your level? Right, because you're getting you're getting invited to two different types of fantasy football leagues. Right, you know, player. Do players even play fantasy? Okay, okay. Do you play for money? Yes, an employee. Right, well, I'm sorry, okay, fair enough. Pretty safe to say he's not listening. Yeah, right, no, no, we're big we're big yeah, we're big time. Do you see that sign? Glow and bird? That's true. Give us some love. Marcus is going to shit us out afterwards too. It's going to be your favorite. All right, there you go. So you playing? You said fourteen, fifteen leagues. What's your favorite format for a league? Pr Sort of thing. I think I don't more time players advance, because I think the kicker position comes up every year in our leagues and whether we're going to vote the kicker off the islander we're going to keep the kicker. So far the kicker has survived. So put your money...

...where your math is, Marcus. What what a round do you picking your first kicker? Okay, just check, I'll look at the bottom of my roster. Think which gustful I'll drop them. Yeah, I think a lot of people do the same thing. It's a question from the from the crowd. Some Steve, I seen that one. So some comments coming in here. Marcus, Steve as tent pick in a ten min league PPR. Should I go back to back running backs? are take running back receiver strategy. That situation, twelve or so count on a pretty significant drop off. So I don't mind going with a couple of running backs. Suggest get yourself a ten, maybe Travis Kelsey, still hanging on how you draft, but if you get yourself one of those top three tight ends, just as the position is so fed right now, I don't personally want the headache of trying to figure out matchup you chend ever meet in playing the way the wire for the tiden position. So I think it like a Travis Kelce or Darren Waller and George K just sort of set it to get it a tend. That's what we're on. The tight end position and kind of a local guy, Kyle Pitt. He grew up in the area. What are your thoughts to him this year from a fantasy perspective? He's for me, that means you're sort of drafting him at now. I think we all believe that ceiling is pretty high. It's funny that whatever talk about how pits the eight hundred yards, six or in touchdown about him at the position. But this year I'm I'm a little bit more head I took more of a skeptics a little well, I took him in one of my league so I hope he has a good year and is a rookie stand out. Yeah, yeah, right, yeah, I have a question just in it seems to be in both of my leagues. I don't know why, but say Juan and Zeke have both fallen and say Juan actually went in the second round in my one league, and I just want to know. Do you have any ideas to why those two keep falling? From injury? Yeah, slow and bringing him back. There was a point sound all that usually the most confident. I think there's also the whole but I still have a hard time of the first round. It's a little bit of the cowboy offense, a lot more simple that in the past the game. Understandably, part of it is because that defense is so bad and at shoot ball a lot there's just over the last few years seek sufficiency has declined a little by little, year by year. Number of touches he has every year goes down little by little and now this year Dallas is really talking about Chiny and Tony Pollen a little bit more involved. But all that being said to him I still have a hard time writings he get out of, say in the top of a tip. I think that's that's about where he's falling right now. He's sort of been late part of the first round and I think that's okay. Yeah, it's just you just sort of have to understand and maybe he's not going to be the guy that gets three hundred touches or more like he has been. The fact right. We got another question here, Marcus, from Lee Shekor out there. How do you view see e h this year? From Kay saying I think the problem would was it with him? It was. I think what happened was we wanted to Chiefe first on to draft a running back and they did so we got...

...super excitement. Then you had a couple of guys popped out, covid of that back injuries, and we did a few weeks before we won and suddenly is the last man standing. Thing that she's bag deal and we got over excited at analyst and we started paving to him in the middle of the fifth where our middle of the first round he was going to be. People are afraid because he didn't expectations last year, so now he drafted in something closer. I get. That's my marcus. Last year we had Justin Jefferson, right, made a huge impact as a rookie. Right probably did more than what any of US could think of. Looking at this year's draft class, who would you say the guy out there's going to be like the top point get her like running back, by receiver, like we're at? Where do you see somebody that is really going to perform well in fantasy? That's in the rookie season. I think. I think he's leading you to an answer that Mark's looking for day to say, we chatter walks. He's leading crumbs you a situation of notion. He's going to the guys all the work that's going to be. I will say, though, that I've been in a lot of draft. He's available, I think from the moment he was drafting invest receiver roster. That's not hard to do. So, sticking with the eagles, there's you're that we all we love me. You love to hear that. From a fantasy perspective, it sounds like you're interested in in Davante. Outside of I think the next obvious would be miles sander's any other philly players that you might targeter keep an eye on that would have a good season from a fantasy perspective to see what last four starts. The only quarterback that had more rushing yards in that same stretch our Jackson. So that's what I believe developments will pass as well. If you're looking late in draft. Kind of a guy to take a flyer on at Washington, the next one. So we got another question out there from Joe White. Who Do you like is the best for sere option from Matt Jones and do England kind of erratic at times. That sort of encouraging. So I think he's hell all, yeah, yeah, and there I got it. I got a two part question for you. You mentioned that you are in up to fifteen leagues this year. I think you said. Okay, I've been in as many as for maybe five in a season and I found myself, of course, it's...

...only natural that you end up rooting against yourself because you know you have players on different teams doing different things. Do you find yourself end up rooting against yourself? And also another thing I used to do when I was in multiple leagues was once a team or two start at the fade, I just kind of stopped paying attention to them. Just all I did was kind of make sure a lineup was set, but I really focused on those teams that had a chance at the end you find yourself doing those same two things. All right, all right, yeah, HMM, Sunday morning. All Right, successful myself stood munday morning, impartial observer. I appreciated before. Sunday scores. Right. Yeah, who are you not drafting this year? WHO's out of fifteen team, fifteen leagues, what's a player that you won't have on any of those leagues? Yeah, gotta be kid of me. I went to the same holy schools he did. Nobody cares. Yeah, it's true. Pretty now the question out there from Joe White. Any other rookie running backs worth taking a pick this year? Time, so excited, explosive. I don't think that's pretty high. Right, that's high for him at Yah's. It's right. I'm a big believer this year in the the Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams kind of the action. Screw you, Green Bay. Final run through I saw you had Davante as number five and your top wide receivers. What are your feelings on Green Bay this year? and is Aaron going to get back to his MVP status? And I'm not a big iron fan, these guys know, but I still drafted. When it comes to fantasy play, football. Okay, so there's okay. Really, just try to...

...take it out on everybody else. Michael Jordan. Yeah, it's petty for me. First that offense has ship on his shoulder. So, yeah, don't get it. I think is petty. What one of the wide receivers this year that moved to Tennessee? Julio Jones, right like. I took a shot on them last year and he kind of underwhelmed me. This year I took him again. What do you where? Do you see him like in terms with AJ Brown? Do you see him taking, you know, a hit in terms of points and catches, or do you see Julio being the top wide receiver eventually into in Tennessee, like, what would you say is outlook is and what round would you would have drafted them in? Those Julio Jones Fall so they made a little bit more than they were before. I think it works out, because where do you focus all your energy? Spend a lot of energy trying to stop an can't box? Henry Right Suation a handful of last year, but I and I think the taunt a couple round after that. Maybe he's not wide, solid wide. It's Julio. Yeah, yeah, but I would take right like it's truly I looked at his numbers, because we had this conversation about who not too long ago, and I looked at his numbers. It was only last year. When you look at it lash, it was last year and I think his second year with a too lowest of his careers. Now he never scores a lot of touchdowns, but wholl get you catches one hundred yards in a sleep. So okay, I think I will go out with one more question here. We know you're a busy man, especially this time the season, and let you get back and have have some family time. In all your years of playing fantasy, is there one universal truth in fantasy? Like we talked about weight on your kicker. Don't draft the quarterback before x round. What's the one universal truth that you see near over year that stands? I think there's comes out of nowhere plague that identifies success guys like James Jackson. Yeah, very sage advice. Ain't nobody take no notes. Don't know, I got no paper. You guys are terrible. I keep it on getting this you get this man's time right, appeared. Nay, we can watch. Okay, okay, yeah, all right, you try it. replayability on prep. Guys take mental notes, copious mental notes. So Marcus, he went to the prep in like one thousand nine hundred and twenty, and I'm a younger guy, so I went to Lasalle. So we always just butt heads. I guess this ridiculous. Yeah, yeah, yeah, never stops. It...

...don't matter. I was getting to ask you who your favorite us he receive or his Juju or Nelson, but I don't want to put you on the spot. He's showing to yes, current in the League, Number Nine Jersey, and that was okay. Yeah, good call, Marcus. Before you go, we got one last question. I'll mean to keep you here. Thoughts on Josh Allen? Can You do? Can you replicate what you did last year? Football? All right, Marcus, as you can see, his twitter handles up there at Marcus g also find them on Tick Tock. I love your videos you're doing on tick tock. been following you there. Just quick hits and it's gotta keep up with the kids and Hey, they're informative. So you, anybody that's drafting this weekend, get ready. Make sure go into your drafts prepared right. The one thing I would say that we learned from this year. The later you draft is probably the better, with the injuries and the trades and the guys that were cut. But followed Marcus. Marcus, you find him on NFL network to it if I'm fantasy live. Really appreciate you given us some time. Anything else you want to promote while you're on here? Football, fantastic. Thanks. Markets really appreciate it. Maybe we'll talk to you later in season. Right. Thanks. All right, guys, I think a good time we'll take a quick break digest as fantasy and fo. We got some eagles cuts to talk about and we got some some Ben Simmons Venom to be spilled. So thanks for hanging out with us. Hope you enjoyed marcus being on here, but it's all they all your fantasy football players. We're going to take a quick break and we will be right back.

So, Jordan, we're looking forward to having me on the podcast next week. Yeah, it'll be fun. He definitely has some some nice artwork. I hobby joined us live in the studios, not being an Lsu fan or a bangles find his Joe Barrow piece that he did is really cool. If nobody's seen it, he's a drewbrey sitting there with the cigar and he's got the trophies around him. And yet the drew brees is nice. It sounds like he's working. He's teased a new piece that looks like it might be the front something with the slimmer person. He's got the figure it out. He's got some post stuff there on his social so it'll be cool to have him and sure you know and we'll be looking. We're going to get some of our our normal friends in here. It's the season goes all, but we're going to be looking to bringing some other interesting guests. Maybe guys he could crunch a pizzacross and the microphone La. I know, I'm what that how was that in our faces? Well us, it was a rush to get well. have to. I'm going to play this video for Mama me is Pete's and say see how good your pizzas these guys are. They're not even monster ship. They don't even care about the talking right now. Normally can't get deep. The shut up and he has settle word other than the TORTATO alley. He's trying to come up with a good thing, it is said, but it's all right. Eagles roster. Any surprised cuts? I have a I have a couple. I think there's a couple for everybody. Yeah, I think there is a couple of the bat fold foldom and high town fosens back on the back, back on the price. See that him and high tower back on the practice squad. But how Howard would now ours me as well. I I thought Howard it was. I thought they were going to carry for running backs just because of the injuries. You never know, but I was mostly surprised with fold them. I didn't understand that. Now, with the wide receivers that we have, I get Quez has had a good preseason and he deserved a spot, but I agree with you. I think the the running backs with thin. I think the receivers are thin. You guys are forgetting about Jj break out. So that's why is he there? It's because Falkham fell off after after the fos for did it even get a chance of yeah, is it Jeffrey come he didn't get a getting chance because he was falling off? No, because Alesand Jeffrey King. He's the number one receiver in the least throw for five weeks. Not like a you just don't came off. It's not like alt he was the number one receiver for five weeks based off of the first two weeks because he has so much production the first two. Let's let's not look at that face value. Jj or Fogel, full them fog right. I don't need argue then. I'M gonna I'm gonna go with that. Jay was a higher draft picking probably right. How how how he doesn't want to make that mistake, which just so, but don't tell brody. I'll take Brodyo. But but I'll tell you what. Like I'm got this Jordan Howard move. It's surprised me, but we've talked about it. I think Kenneth Gamewell is is be impressed. Yeah, I think. I mean if you saw him in the preseason. But I just think that Gamewell and sanders and you know what's your boy, Boston sky? He shows up in the giants teams, you know games the year. Yet he had a nice run in the meadow lands in the first season. Still did a fair Indeci Fair kicks. So funny he's a giant killers. Is a giant kill. Look at it. And if that's all he is, that's good enough. But it's two games like he's. If you look at the numbers, it's astounding. How, just two games out of the year he just these ladany Tom once, okay, and the other the rest of the cool Boston he's me. Hopefully, hopefully, we see the giants in the playoffs. I hear. I know I said this last week and like I really think we're getting a heavy dose to Sanders. I think that's why they haven't played him all preseason. I'll tell you. Weve HM in bubble wrap. I think he's going to beat a horse. However, watch out for Kenneth Gamewell, because he can line up all over the yeah, he make mind so versus right. And if users, if you look where Sirianni came from, right, that's what they did with Jordan, with Jonathan Taylor, right, and now he hinds and and he was. He was kind was catching balls out of the backfield and...

...he was there. You know, their scat back if you want to. Yeah, I agree it. You're going to see some crazy stuff with Ryani. I still say that, like when I said he's a man scientists like you got hurts and guy. He's like another big Va. I don't think he's a McVeigh, but I think he's going to exploit matchups and I think they have like weapons all over the place. I really like gaine well so to line up split wide his wide receiver, Guy. Guy, can play. I also like the fact of this, and I think we would all agree. I think we're all excited with what Zach hurt said yesterday. I couldn't, I can't be happier that we're going to be able to run a twelve personnel with too, in my opinion, still even hurts out of down here. I'd still put him as a top ten wide receiver in this league. All, I mean tight end of this league, and I think Dallas got it's a top ten, even though it's interesting that that rumor yesterday did they talked about moving Dallas. Got It well right. I mean if you're Minnesota, you just lost your study, you're starting tight end, you're gonna look around the League. Listen of Minnesota what gave us a first or second I think you do it and you give arts two or three years. Ah, I would. I don't want to trade got her. I think he's too I'm not saying I want to, but if a team, no, no, no, Gay, like they did with Bradford, as say it was like the Bradford situation. I just think God, it as too much upside. But going back to the running back situation, right, I think if the eagles are smart, not that they run sanders into the ground this year, but you know he's coming up on a contract year, so you want to see if he can, if he's really worth the money, if you're going to pay him. That's another thing. If you're going to pay yeah, so you rite you do everything you can in this offense with him this year to see if he's going to be worth it. And I agree with you on that and that point that it's like kind of like a put up or shut up year for Sanders. But I also think that also goes hand in hand. Would how jalen hurts performs. Right, if Jalen hurts does not perform well this year and you have to go out and you have to trade for a veteran, you know, quarterback, or you have to go out and spend a lot of money. Then that takes a lot of the money that you have. If jalen hurts is really good, then you can surround him, you can give miles sanders money, you can pay all these guys to extension. So, like that's one of the reasons why I like I know on my team Jalen Hurts Fan club and I'm glad that Marcus said he's going to be good too. But like that's the best case scenario for the eagles, if Jalen hurt proves that he can be the starting quarterback. That's how you win super bowls in this league. And I'm not saying jalen hurts was the super bowl, but the eagles want a super bowl that year because they had Carson Wentz under a rookie contract and they could surround the rest of the team with town. If this young nucleus can be what we expect, they don't need to blow the doors off anybody ever next two years. But if they're good enough right they're cheap, then you can pay the guys. Like sad news, you're going to have to pay my a lot right you, and then you're gonna have to focus on that line. But the receivers don't need to be paid for another three years. Steven Nelson performs, you're going to pay him right, because I mean you look, like you said, Jim, the young nucleas. You have the right pieces. You have a good starting guy position players. You got your wide receivings, ride receiver cord right and you have a solid running back right and your offensive line, if it's a health, one of the best in the league. I think you were about to say the eagles potentially could be a very good offensive team, and I agree with that. It hinges on two things. Those two things are jalen hurts, Yep, and the offensive line. I agree with and Jalen hurts hinges on the offensive line. Yeah, if he progresses throughout the course of the season, it's because the offensive line has stayed together and on the field. They they're a veteran offensive line. There are very good offensive line when they're all on the field at the same time. If we have to go to sobs, that's where it gets dicey. But I think if the vets can stay together, they put they they I think are one of the one of the top offensive lines in the NFL. If they stay together, stay healthy, stay on the field, I think Jalen hurts will make a lot of progress through the course of the season and I think the eagles offense will be very productive. If, if, this is a big if, obviously, if this soligne see healthy. First off, it's the best in the division, for sure. Yeah, it's one of the best the NFL. Right, forget the division, which then makes your offense to arguably the best in the division, even with all the cowboys star power. Yeah, now, yes, yes, it. There's a lot. There's I think there's potentially a lot of talent on this offense. The whole season rides on the elphants. The offensive line. Happens to my joining her set right. Yeah, Jason Kelsey, he's one of the best centers in the League. Lane Jo. I mean you bring go rooks, you start a little start in the middle and go out and all the way to the tackles on each end. There across the board. Wanted the best, best lines in the May Med lot. As a start. I'm yeah, yeah, it's a hes a start. And now you start. Used to be you know, Jim used to say it all the time. You know, just give the ball the running back and have them go run behind my Austin. Yeah, rights, yeah, on the right side. But now my lot if he's a star, now you go that way. Yeah,...

...and I mean if hurts gets time to throw, I mean I think he'll home make plays. Right, and I love the speed that this team has. Like Devante Smith. It's okay to the chief Wriger right. Riger has speed. Was Watkins has speed. Jj Not so much. A does not these the red zone threat, but like but that. So there are positions, though. We're like we've talked about the offensive line. I don't the depth of looking at there like we have no backup guards unless you can. Isn't convince Dillard to be a guard, driscoll, but didn't. DRIST will just get put on the IAR. You also have you guys. I thought you were the season, not of that, Parson dickerson. I think Dickerson just got a good play guard. He's played onlygether right exactly, and like here's one part and batting out. It's kind of the defensive side of the ball. If they say healthy, that secondary is very good with Nelson and slight. I mean I don't know about Vante Maddox is a slock corner, but they're safeties are decent. Mccloud there better than the Anthony Harris Right, I think it. I think it's a better second is a better seculatory linebackers. I mean, all right, well, can't get much worse, though. Only goes up from a here defensive line like they. You know again we're Hinde and the third round, but Milton Williams like dirt. Yeah, you have the light out, the light, and you haven't in the atmosphere. You have an aggressive defensive coordinator, Gannon, who's willing to blitz. No, so is it unplugged? On behind you, on the other plug? He come, no, no, no, the others, the other sides, Mantie, yeah, the other side. Is it plug? Is it unplugged? I got it. I got all work on it. Fellows, you guys have it show continue to tell the installer on the team. Yeah, I agree with Brian, though. He just said my Allott ass that I don't think he's just stud. I like them, but I don't see anything that makes you think that he's a stud. All right, how's he not as how we hold on. I think he can hold on. How's he not a study? gave up one sack and he played by eleven or twelve games last year. And how you did play out? Yeah, yeah, Dude, Peter's yes, he played more. Yeah, yes, I don't know if he played twelve, but I and he gave up one sack or no sacks. He manhandled some of the guys, including chase young. I think he did well against chase young. But I which I'm not sure we could crown him a stud. Right, you talk about you know I mean when you say Stud we're talm about one of the best left tackles in the league. Have you guys watched me? Like, look what he did last year. He's just starting tackle for this team, right. I'm not saying that. Yeah, I'm not. I don't know if I'm ready to. Like nate said, I don't know if I'm ready to crown them a stud. Thought is lane John Maybe, maybe just shot because he's young. He's big. Actually, Conne, remember how well he performed with how shitty that offensive line wasn't held those injuries were right, he's a bet. It wasn't hard to do, though. Okay, you know who's playing toil leaking about game. I don't even know the starting line up, the starting events line sometimes, because they rotated everybody and then you had a mobile quarterback to right. It's not like someone sitting there, just sitting in the pocket. The quarterback, Carson White, was mobile. No, US, that was four games. Once his mobile. Once is definitely a mobile. Yeah, I agree. Once once has moved. Mobility. Yeah, is he? Is He a statue? No, is he? Is He Mike Vic? No, but he can move. Yes, Jim, where's the swear jar? Oh, I do have thee for once, for once, for once, the other guy tonight. That thing's going to be overflowing at best. We talked about that. Got One dollar. Who meant it? Who mentioned whence first she got a three? Might have been SMITT. I don't know. Is You did? I I don't know. I'm just gonna tell you what you you said that they're gonna, they're gonna run miles into the ground. I'm getting back to the depth. Just looking at who they captain. Who is gone if they run miles into the ground, the right ag you got Boston and Kenny game. Well, now, I don't think this is this isn't the final roster. There's they got a whole week to somebody's going to get cut, someone's can get picked and somebody's going to get other players added. And Jordan Howard could very well be these on our practice of the practice. So he could very well be called off week too, if somebody doesn't perform. Well, think there were someone's hurt. You think there's any more trades coming? You think they could be like a sneaky get rid of Dillard? I would have be seeing are what it's how he trade Bardonett? It is Howie. Mean he's part that for what? I don't know. These are yeah, but I'm still see. There's like a little treat I did that. I want to have Matt Prior Trade. All right, I like that. I don't care. I didn't really care. I mean, yeah, but it's happen. Our stinks. But why did we have, like you said, Jim in our tech in our group chat? Why did we have to throw in another pick? Yeah, I don't understand. Almost said the JA. I know. I think we can trade jj down to Miami with Mac Collins. CAN TRADE JJ for a couple of I don't care, bag of balls and balls and a couple of razor was a great reason. Great catch she had in a meadow lane. There was a sure...

...you know sanders will fumble and he'll pick one up in the end and I'll be as touch show. That's what he did last you right, I'd friend friended chime in flaish. Well, let you know that we ran your team by Marcus Grant, NFL expert, and he said your team is garbage. To dumpster five like start trading players now. I'll talk to you when I get home. I could fires that, but plans comment. Your comments don't count to you. Come in studio right, mission. that he taking shots. That's that's from our earlier conversation, I think. But about the Colt, the cold, pen stable cold. We'll be in here Thursday. I'm I'm not ready to do the final predictions. I think we'll do that next week for the season. Right, we did a preseason. They know. We've already said it. I wouldn't different. What did we say? We were like. What do you end up like? Ten and seven? I think we had them in the Super Bowl. We might have the yeah, playing the grounds right befo the show. We all had him at six or seven hands at the end of the show. We had them with a lever to listen. I might I might have to change that prediction after the cowboys huge pick up this week and Corey Clement has been impacts in two thousand and eighteen, but cowboys fans think he's, you know, gonna Spell Z Kelliot this year. So shout out the dolls. I think collment is on Dallas now. Yeah, they pick them up really, he hasn't done anything since two thousand and eighteen. He had one good game riper bowl. Yeah, and I'll take it absolute exactly. I do like that. Marcus made the comment that Dallas's defense is horrible. He might have to set horrible, but he said they're bad and they're going to shoot out. They all change our number two single digits today. So you know that excites that changes her mental. Yeah, exactly. WHOSE FLANSA? He's in next week's Maddie. Yeah, yes, so we could. He be a big Penn State win against grace. Grace last what his presence nextually? Yes, it's always a treat when a bees in. He he he did ask a feat is on the network over tonight and I said his on the front time, but I didn't know about overnight, so he may be able his own prime time. They were playing and FL fantisy live. He's on prime time and I don't know if they do. He said five. I was gonna ask me if they get into his studio and they all watch the Games together, like on Sundays. I'm not sure if, like you know, they had the red zone and all that, if he's involved in that. Agree. WILL HAVE A B and Jordan Specter and studio AH OHN special guests. We more. We better have a most battles must week. It must be opening week, and I did. My Dad said he would come in Nice. Oh Yeah, and that brody you've been poking out of like poppy. You make comments every week when you go in. He said, I'm going seriously here AB season prediction. Be Nice to have somebody with me on the other side of somebody older than Give Hee's, other side of sixty five. That's not me. Don't talk about Mr Markus like that. All right, talking about old people in old topics. Ben Simmons, what are you doing with been? Where's been? Gon? We're we're going to bend before we talk about the hottest team in the city. The fills, we're the fighting fills are one and a half games back. Last week we put them to death. I mean they went tonight. What did they game out? Now? They already did when. Want to know? They haven't. Don't they have another? It's no, it wasn't one. Okay, so they're one and a half. Yeah, one and a half with three, three against the braves. Don't they coming up? Yeah, I mean, listen, anything can happen with that schedule. That's all I'd say. If they get to you to take care of business. I they do have an easier schedule and it's favorable. But and Marcus Suns and I like that kid. This season they've just been so high and cold. It's it's a Yo yard. They're pulling me in. Let me know, pull me in, let me go, and I don't know if I'm ready to get back in, even if they don't make the playoffs. One thing that I think has been awesome is bryce harbor has put this team oh on his back and carried him and if this carries out, momentum in the next seat like this is what I wanted to see from Bryce for absolutely time now. Aaronolah, okay, dude, put your freaking dude and he's out and pitch right, he's pitching to a triple a line right and he's still giving up and your team is is two games out and you need to go out there and have a good fight. And he gives up what six runs? Yeah, like, come on, dude, I'm so, I'm I'm I'm not out to say I'm done with Arianna. No longer think he's ace and I no longer think he can be the workhorse of the he's like a three or four right now. Yeah, and Gibson's over are now art aces. This close to get into the sixth, seventh. They thinning every time. Not An ace right now, as they if they were to make the playoffs. I think the rotation is a wheeler, Gibson and Nolah. Yeah, man, no one has fallen off. Weird wheelers kind of fallen off a little bit. Don't forget about Matt Moore. All right, he had that one good game where he was here, he was Hitless into the sixth inning and then they took him out. So it drives me nuts that that sred waters around baseball, not just a phillies first daughters...

...around these. This guy's don't crush on Freddy Galvis. Don't get well as tenny. What's he played? Two Games? No, he's been playing. What's even playing? Whatever game? Who Pretty Galvis? Yeah, he's been done. Ever says we trade it from this guy's been. Oh, I think he's very great glove, yes, but he has a whip. It's and he's not much of a stick here. He's a great glove. Dude, he's got he's got to stick for a bad that's what it is. Oh, well, you know what? Yeah, you need that defense now. I agree. So He's nice. I'm not getting excited over Freddy. Get outvis. I'd rather see him then all bowman. Third, absolutely hundre percent. Here's a move that I like it. I'm sure Joe Girardi right here listening after your big way in Washington. But here's a move and I think you guys would agree. Right. First piece is a problem. We know Hoskins is done. I would keep marshamby marsh on behind catcher and when JT's ready, put him at first base. I don't know. But how long exacts and you out for the year. I know. Oh you mean. Are you saying now you're next year. I don't want to see anywhere Andrew Nap on this. Well, that's why they brought more shawn up right. That's what I'm sad. That's your and you do make the playoffs, you gotta put Jat at first. That that's just the same. Him in the line, right, exactly, and marshawn's like you said, he hasn't been bad so far. Yeah, I thought you're talking long term. I don't want to see JAS long term, but you know, eventually, if I could rave breese hoskins for a picture on my doe, not this earlian his career. Hmm Right, because then you eighteet a me a be just made a good point. He says Gal was good in the field. Montacu hard run slide in the second is why they scored the go ahead run today. The scrubs are smarter than the star. Thank you, ab that's exactly right. Thanks for being part of my Colt there one thing straight. There is no code of Smitty going on it and pence they there is. He said so many. No Right, I got a question for my uncle today. With the noble thing. He's like, are we done with Noah and I'm thinking. So we're getting ready to go into a conversation about Ben and you hear about US running players out of town. That right, but we're not. Martian's gone, or Noah. Ben's going next? Are we going to be running no one out of town next? I'll because I think there's a fine line between running out of town and the guy just losing it. Yeah, the underperforming. I don't know anything like like. What do you like? You said Jim in our group chat. What is enough enough? Like with the pad on the back? Yeah, and like you got it. You gotta perform. You got you got when you're being paid Max contract type deals, as Joel says, you got to be better. Dj that. No, that's another plan. I think miss what I said. He said and I a grief when you said Jat's the best defensive catcher and baseball calls a great game, you start him at catcher. I agree with you that JT is however, this team has lost a lot of games because their defense sucks. They don't lose that game in San Diego and they sweep if Brad Miller can make a ground ball. So why I'm saying that is putting jat. You know at first base. I know that defensively you're not as good, but all I mean not as good as what it first base. No, right. So you're better at first band the plate because Jay, not button wouldn't do it. I think that that's I have to make right now. I would Brad Miller, like he's good for that. Pinch it, you know, in the bamboo once in a while, but that's about it. Like, defensively sucks. Yeah, he's not very exciting to me now. Neither of our corner infielders do anything. Like I don't care who you put there, if it's boom, if it's Millary, like, I don't. I don't want to put jt there, though. He also says calling the Games is most important. Dude, it doesn't matter who that was calling the game. When Matt Moore's pitching, I don't give a shit. Well, not catch her. When in playoff right comes around, it's important. Ye, got a next catcher as a as a manager to right. He can call game, but you're already done to play. She's it's better than that problem. He is. Let me let me ask you, guys something here. I've been thinking about this and I've been looking at this a little bit and I was actually thing about pointing to play on this is if the phillies make the playoffs, is Harper your MVP? Who? That's? Well, that's tough. If he keeps US nine hundred plus seven hundred and fifty, always he went. He has, he's up to. All those numbers are doing is going up. So who? They haven't gone down. Wheelers numbers are down right for so young. Yeah, to tease, is going down a little bit. He's waiting. His numbers have going up. Harper. Yeah, I thought he was in a plus a thousand of one point. That's now. I'm not talking fantasy odds, I'm talking actual baseball n learn. Yeah, it's Betty, betty, all right, like actual envy, like his batting numbers have gone off. Okay, like to tease is kind of falling off a little bit. And they wasn't a lots. Average went down a couple points. But I think if he keeps up this tear and like he's doing, but the team on the back, I don't see how he's not your MVP. I don't think it's a bad bet. I don't know if what's he at? Twenty stadny six home. I agree.

Slip out. The highest urbis are two. hellow buddies. What is Nice? On base percent so he's ops, has is leading the league. Yeah, it's office is the highest, and is opie is Opia, is ops is high. Is On base percentage is high, right, and his average is killing it. I don't see anything. I mean if they make the play, all say after coming out of five. Think, more importantly, he's getting a clutch here, a clutch hit here in there, and he's the whole team is is behind them like his right. Listen, this was a month ago. I don't know how these have changed, but his on base percentage, he was second in the League. He's first. slogging percentage he was fourth, and it's ops he was third. You nops is first now. Yes, is first. Now, I don't know about slugging percentage, but can you, and I can't help but keep thinking about the phillies is we're talking about them being one and a half back. Last week I know they were like five. If they didn't get there, even if they split against the time backs, the worst team out in Arizona, we're in first place. You also think about how many games this team blew and I know we've talked about it, but they blown twenty two, twenty three, game twenty six. I thinks one earlier, if you even won half of those, running away with the faking division. And think about it, beginning of this year somebody would have told us the phillies will be one and a half games out in September. We, I think I would all tell we. I think we will take that. And Yeah, I'm sorry, did you just say Pittsburgh? The Pittsburgh series? Losing two out of three towns out, that was a big one. Arizona and losing three to Arizona. Those well, it was five, five out of six of those games it was yeah, right, between Pittsburgh and Arizona, five out of six they lost. Well, they'd be up three, three games right now probably if they win those two sho there. What are they got? The braves this weekend? Is it? No, they're not. For a boot and the brewers. That's tough then. Isn't it more walk this weekend? I don't know, but they went over the schedule on the radio hold I got and they have a really easy schedule. They've got my ant the braves and absolutely it is the second wall lad see the brewers tops. Milwaukee's the top team in yeah, they're. They're okay, a rain, definitely of the hot hardest. Well, don't go out the same phrase. They got their sixty nine win today. So I mean, are you good looking? Nice? I mean celebrate. Yeah, shots do not. All right, good times. I think the second to last series is against the braves. I think. I think they're yea, this celestis this weekend. They got them there in Miami. Now they stink in my am this weekend we got Colorado. We've got Cincinnati again. I think Colorado is Brutalsburg again. Colorado stinks. So they should win at home against Colorado Miami. Hopefully you take two out of three in Miami. Hopefully. I know they don't. They don't. I well, in Miami and then you're in Milwaukee. That's tough. I don't think they win that series. I think you need to look at the braves schedule. Their braces are busy with the braves. Well, their schedules toll. They got good. They got the rays again, don't they? Yeah, they got a lot. Yeah, I agree with the RBIS. To Look said that's a shape. RBI URBIS are too low. I agree, and then I also agreed. Joe White is like when he was crushing the baseball in the beginning year. Nobody was on base, although solo home. Yeah, wow, maybe saying MVP from the brewers, dodgers and giants, I would agree, but I mean I think Tatis, but right now the pop. That's yeah, that's why I was gonna say all this is amber's of I mean, who on the giants is I mean, is Brian throwing a lots that? You've been. I've been about the dodgers. I don't think that yours are a bran. You know what I think funny you guys realize that the lead has been choked away. The giants say Hi, did cap there? Ass It's gonna is Kapler going to have that September collapse and nine two years in a wild card? Hey, he did that. Wow, here right. What are they actually the braves series? Is the last series of the season? Oh, it's a last I thought it was a way against the Philly in Atlanta to that could be. That could be very I mean interesting weekend. That could be. Forgot our which one is. It is a weekend series. Is Well, boss, honestly, middle hopefully through Thursday. Here you go. Hopefully we're up for hopeful we're going intoday. Hopefully, and it don't matter. And it doesn't matter. Be Nice at least three and a half our last serial to and get our yeah, right, right, I'll be on here division and then, wow, that gure no long could be very interesting. So right now the phillies are plus three hundred t win the NLI and now east. So what are the brains? That's to three hundred and sixty. Well, I think that's low. Yeah, because you look at the brave schedule, it's tough. I mean, yeah, they're gaming a half up and they're probably they are the better team on paper. But I just think the Philly say got a lot of injuries to out there, dealer injuries. Yes, albe's is hurt. That is a freeman still hurt now he's or so covid. You're thinking it should be like a plus six hundred for the goal the other way. Yeah, yeah, I think it should be a little. No, I think it's be like it should be like an not not not minush it, but like what's to D and fifty? Right, you said too low. I was like, I think plus three hundred is solid money. It's not bad, but I mean, I'm just looking at the brave schedule now. I'm saying it. Jump on that sale. If they're saying the braves have...

...a really hard schedule, not, and the fills have an easy they gotta go out to they got to go out to Sam friend, they gotta go out to San Diego. I mean, so we're that's what I'm asking that. He got naked and you got MVP plus. Are you doing a part lay here? Is it? I mean you can do a parley, but no, I would do I would do it straight. I would do it straight. So and the reason why I ask because I knew he was in the running. I know he's still kind of hot, you know. I mean, so I'm just I'm just looking at where's the value? Right? Yeah, where's the where's the value in the play? And if you're saying, I mean what you guys are break it down. Just just listen to what you guys are saying. You saying Atlanta has a much tougher schedule than we do. We're picking up steam again, we're getting hot. Are Ours. It's really just the Atlanta series that we have. We're only a half a game back, especially what I think Joe White said. The braves aren't caught a route today. They're on the slump. That's not bad money. I mean you're getting three, three to one to your money. So I mean they're two games down in the wild card. I'd love to see them get the giants. So and that's what I'm Kapler out. That'd be great. That's that's another thing too that I'm looking at to is. What is that? What is the odds for them to make the playoffs? I mean, they're two out in the wild card and what they're one, said, one and a half in the division. So that might be the best bet right there. The Division Bet. No, the no that make the playoffs. The philly. Oh Yeah, just just in just in general, phillies are the hottest team right now. I mean, I know, I don't off. The nationals know they're the hottest team in baseball. They vote there in a six game winning street. Anybody else in the League going? The dodgers, not Yank they dodgers and Yankees are on a tear. Did the Yankees not in a really in a row? Yeah, not, I just really six game winning street. They're breaking numbers. that. Yes, yes, seven plus six in a row, right, and they're seven and three, same as the dodgers over the last ten. Yeah, but so they're not the hot the Yankees just went on a thirteen game. There were twelve, twelve or thirteen. They went on a hot six wins. Yeah, the biggest win street. But I would say the dodgers and Yankees hot hog the Yankees. Yankees are the pill six and four in the last ten. Well, they were. They were good for they alread, they jumped the Red Sox, they went on a tear. Put our thumbs down. All right. Do we want to do? We want to like just start getting made? Do we want to get fired up? Do we want to exactly, man's that time in the show when the show really try that we got to start. You gotta be bad. I go, I go out on fire. Right, yeah, I mean, if we want to jump into weekend, all right, I'm ready to jump in. All right. I think we all got our own little spiels to get through. So the report came out this week that Ben doesn't want to be here, said he won't show up. I don't want to be a sixer anymore. That's good. Okay, fine, make your comments, is a right. His agent comes out. He's going to get them out. Apparently. He says he also wants to get his other client, piice Maxie, out. Rumors are and he told any of the charities that he was working with the cancel those events. Joe Goes out on social media, like he does, and and, but JOE does. First he starts talking about the Real Madrid trades or something like that, and people's just get people fired up exactly. And then he fires the which I think we were talking a little bit before this. I think he was trying to show support for Ben but then he also makes the comment that Philly faines need to be better. I've wished my opinion on that many times and I voiced again. So. So now we're stuck with our superstar. For those listening to the PODCAST, I did big quotes in the air. Superstar once out. He's trying to force his hand out at the end of the season. I think half of the city wanted him out anyway. Yeah, but now the way it's being handled seems like it's got some people up in arms. I didn't take floors. You were shoddy. got that. I didn't. I didn't take offense to what Jewell said about being better, because Joel is a jackass and I think he was just trying to get a started, like you know what I mean, like you want to boom me and I'll have an MVP season, like I'll throw it back in your face. But I don't think he really meant they need to be better. I think he was really just being troll old and bed right, just like he did when he came on. You know, been drops. He wants a good trade and then he's asking about transfer news from Real Madrid. So, like I think he was trolling that. I have two theories about. First of all, I think rich Paul, if you're listening, your piece of Shit. Okay, let me just tell you that the big time, all the Losslessen. But I got a real problem with the NBA, and I know we've talked about this. I got a huge problem when now you have agents, and I know Ab said like that might not be true to Maxi monts out, but even if that is the case, like rich Paul has no like I don't even want to say right, but like sitting there and telling the sixers like Ben's going to sit there and say money doesn't define me. If that's true, right, if we believe Pompeid at that, that's what happened that you know money's not going to define me. You...

...you know, you can find me, I don't care. And then the agent wants to turn around and say, oh well, if you find me, I'm going to make sure clock you know any of my agents are you know my clients don't come to you, or it's going to hurt you in free agency. And my thing is like, that's what's wrong with the NBA. There's too much power in the NBA by rich Paul, who's really Lebron James. Right, let's just put out there who he is. Rich Paul is ran. He's Lebron James Puppet. Clutch sports is ran by a player that's in the League. I got an issue with that. I got a huge issue with the players, any agents, dictating the whole that's why I like the NFL. And I know people are like Roger God del Todell's tough and I get that. But however, we've talked about this. Roger Goodell would never let the shit go on in the NFL. It's a joke. What goes on in the NBA. tamperings convenient when it's further. They alliople like you want to now look into the Miami Heat for Kyle lowry tampering because it happened the first week of free agency. But you're not looking at the fact that when Anthony Davis was in New Orleans, Lebron James and rich Paul met Multiple Times with him, had dinner with him to force him to say I'm only going to La and I'm only signed that contract. But you're right, that's not tampering. The League has an issue where they need to fix it right now. They need to fix it. They need to fix the power of players. Look Ben Simmons, assigned to a four year, five year Max Extension. He wants to talk about how Philly did not treat him right, and I want to have been one of the biggest ben supporters. But Ben, we got riddy, Jimmy Butler because of you. We hand to you a Max contract. We've done everything to try to make you better. Have some self accountability, have some pride. Where's the relationship? Where right's the back and forth? It's been in one way, highway right. Yeah, the sixers have done everything for this guy and baby him and because the coach maybe shouldn't have said like is he my point guard? And Heat the moment I don't know. Jowell's trying to repair. He's either doing a two ways with Joel's a smart guy. He's either trying to repair the relationship with Ben, which I'm not so sure enough what he's trying to do, or he's trying to keep that trade value high for the sixers. Yeah, I'll. I want to give you a little background on players running the League in the NBA and I think that's the most prolific example of players running the League that in baseball. Sure, back back, and yeah, I know you're going to give me great give you back back in coming out of the merger of the Aba into the NBA back in the late s right the league, the NBA, was faltering, HMM, and they were looking for ways to put you know, to promote themselves and to get back into the major major league status. HMM. And so the league, starting in the s with David Stern, decided the way back into that that elite status, that elite league status, was to promote their stars and that's why you saw bird magic Dr j and then Jordan when he got into the League. They started promoting the players as opposed to the teams and as opposed to the League, and I think that is the roots of what you're saying. Now, I agree with where players are running the league. I agree with you, but David Stern still put his foot down in some situations like that. Chris Paul like yeah, but I don't. I'm so saying the roots, the roots of it, were sewing back over a puppet for that Ilabsolutely, the plabsolutely, whatever the hell they want. Yes, and he doesn't care. Yes, but I I think like it was an embarrassment the way that that James Harden situation was handled last year, the way that like, he completely like turned his back on his teammates. then. You know, I still don't think Brooklyn was a halfass deal. The Brooklyn gave them and that's the only place he wanted to go. And the funniest part was that was okay. Tampering to that Kyrie and durant wet with hardened in the summer. It was like you need to force yourself to Brooklyn. I mean that's the league right now. Right I think it's a league that makes it easier to do that because of the size of the teams and there are only so many superstars. I like you. You compared to the NFL, there's fifty three guys in a team. Right, they're not all superstars, but it's it's a little more your right. If it's witter down there, there's not as much leverage there, I guess right. But how are you going to, like, tell a guy you can't go to have dinner with your buddies in the offseason? I get it. How are you going to have this star MVP player running a sports agency? But I'm with you there. But you can't tell me like Lebron can't go have dinner with hard and if he wants to or okay, that's why they investigate. You know how get the hell it's funny. H Danny Green was death Danny Greens on Somebody's podcast this week and he made a comment to like maybe the sixers might get fine for tampering after what I said today, because he was talking about player movement. Like well, what's the name, Darrelmoory, got fines on top over twitter carry for steff telling that have to come join your brother. That's how they agreed. Just...

...it's not. It's not. That is whose draft has what some others do, but added still sitter tampering. Cares about two regions. He cares about making sure that California la teams are relevant and he cares about New York. That's it. I'm glad to see Milwauke even one this year, but that's all he cares about. That's what happiness. You know, Walkee win, come on, but I'm saying like as he's happy as not the Lakers, right, I guess. I guess, Brooklyn, I get we're New York, I get it right. But that's the only thing he cares about. He wants to make those teams rall of it. The big margin. Tea. So and Philly's a big market. Oh yeah, it should be a bit. It should be a big market. We get shit because of what they did, because of the process, because it worked sort of right much not in the Cham Hl Shit on the flyers all those years because at a broad street bullys. Yeah, we're going to be shit on now because at a process. All, right, sexers, but the but the a lot of other teams have. I mean, I'm not to the agreed the thunder openly did it. But be even before that, the Boston Celtics tried to lose every year game to get Kevin the rank. Yeah, yeah, I understand. The next stures give and they they didn't do it five years, but the next did it right, the next did in it and they failed missing because I had terrible from the Sun's sons did it and they made the finals. Right, but they won't get shit on. But yeah, but here Cook my my issue. I don't even care. I'm actually glad that Hinky exposed the League for what it is, because the sixers could never be an and I'm and this is for anything, unless you're a Lakers or a team that is shitty one year and come to get a bunch of free agency. If you're a small market team, you were never going to be relevant in the NBA without a start. That's and in its six has any league, though. Yeah, and it's also any team if you don't have a slave are you're not going to know it, but you could say that like next have been relevating in now they are. I want to say they were a decade. They were relevant for twenty years. All right. I think that's part of a DJ? We say no, they just shitty front office. Yeah, they're probably at an are. Yeah, and the owner was a dud big. Can I say asshole? Sure, I've no AC some regulation shit. Sorry, but go back on this whole dumpster fire that is the Philadelphia sers right now. Said just noticed this are. This are closed. Captioned it actually out. Is it curse? Does it cursores have the curse words? Yeah, Nice, so shit. It no way. All right, sweet, but to go back on this. Don't but it wire either. Yeah, we're so I don't necessarily have a problem with Joel and beat tweeting at us to be better. I do have a problem with it a little bit, because what more can we do for you guys, when you blow to twenty plus point leads at home in the playoffs and we still cheer for use? We also cheered on Mark Hell faults. We cheered like hell for faults. We cheered on you, specifically, jewel, indeed, when you missed two years, two years we waited free to step on the court and we loved every second of that first game. You know he's going to continue to first asking I get it food, I get it just what. That's fine. That's what it is. And then we go and cheer for Ben Simmons when he's at the free throw line. His worst part of it. That guy. were cheering for him. We are cheering for the our worst free throw shooter, the worst free throw shooter in the history of playoff basketball, not diad, and this is a very so percentage, but in the playoff basketball history. Okay, put that out there. We cheer for that. As he's going to the line, we're cheering for him. Yes, how can we be better? Okay, can I twenty five point? Can Blow it at home. How about once fucking twice? There it is. There's that. Take it over to don't wear about. How do you want us to be better? Joel, get the vetom. But the reason why I don't have a problem with it is because Joel is the first one to take accountability on himself. Totally guys, so I can, I can get behind them for that aspect. But in terms of Ben Simmons, Dude, you're soft as Sharmon. Okay, like I just said, we cheer for you every step it away. We did every like Sony said, we did everything we can for you, and then you want to turn around because you got butt hurt because, oh, the team openly willing Leech wants to trade me. No Shit, dude, you didn't step up in the biggest moments. And then, if he's the first when you're our team second option, right, our Max contract player? Right, no shit, we wanted to trade you. And guess what, your values going down even more now, dumb ass, because when we wanted to traders for Harden, when we wanted to trade you for harden, we couldn't. And now, Oh, maybe we'll get buddy healed for you. How do you going to how you going to feel about that? Jay mccolem right, how does that make you feel? None of that. Your role players, do you go star, All star Type Player, and now we're getting role players for you. How do you feel now, jackass, to two things. SEND THEM TO...

MINNESOTA. Two things on that go free fors on so often. Home is city, dude, I don't care. Number One, the contracts have to match. So you got to get something back, right, but you could get out. Horror fell happen where we get role players and draft pick ID number two. Number two, I'm going to join you in the venom. Okay, I have literally, literally seen fifth and sixth graders. I've watched it personally. Ben's gonna call you out of the INSTAGRAM S. not one, but two free through rows, not not off the backboard, not roll around the rim. They swished them, but due don't have a both type of people watching. Hey, that is the line the game. Is why I have I've seen fifth and sixth graders see. I think it's free created seek. They're kind to see this guy, cousty, double digit millions of dollars, can't sake a freaking three throw in a playoff game when we need his ass the step up and sink a freaking three throw while the crowd is cheering. Crowd is Jerry for you, Rick Flaire, who fit? The sixth graders do it. Why can't you? Wow, what's more, Red Santa or Deek's face right now? We gotta keep out. I think it's like, listen, I think it's just ridiculous. How this, how this is all turned this is like you were up. We were a championship level to one seed, a one seed, not not even just this Shart. For Multiple Years We've been a championship level to right, yeah team, and to see it all crumble like this is just it's ridiculous because of one guy. One Guy. It's ridiculous. Yep, one guy supposed to be the next Magic Johnson. It's one guy that sends you that we've supported and and we've been told over them over and over again, that's not what he does. Don't expect him say that. That's not what he does. So we all got comfortable with him not doing what he has wait and, my man, God, never got comfortable with guy. All right, you got it. You seeks part of the one percenters. He's going to quite a one percenters that didn't get come. We even support it. You and your ass got dumb, sick guy, like we talked about doc. Is it docks fault? I maybe you bought it. Could be if you're a coach, easily. But if you're a coach and you're working with a player so much and so much and you can't get on the court and do it for that player, you can't get behind him and Tuck his elbow, limit me shooting like you got to get to a point. Where do you just we lost the playoffs because of you. Nobody's gonna come out and say that ill is. It is not at all. He's one. He's one of the main reasons. I'm which had a certain point of coach is going to get frustrated lost because of Ben, and one of them reasons that is no, it was a total team effort. No, no, BA, they lost because doc rivers can't coach in the playoff. He's number two. But Ben is definitely makes a big hit. It was a twenty. Even big Joel didn't hit that layout when we needed him at the fork layoff. That's true too. He did go out for twelve and fourth quarter. Wait, everybody be quiet and just going to stead on. Lord Andrews Speak. And when Ben Simmons gave up that dunk on Trey young and pass it to toby, yeah, I was it tible. Yes, but no. But if ben hits half his three throws, just half half, they win the seriously, maybe not even half. I can't blame bend. We blew twenty eight point lead and an eighteen point lead. That all. That's right. Blame and that's where I blame. And Doc to know. To to your point, Jim, I don't blame doc, I blame everyone who has enabled Ben Simmons. You draw from the time he was started by basketball and said yes to him and never said no to him and put him up on this pedestal because he didn't do whatever he did on the basketball court except shoot the freaking ball when we need him to shoot the ball. Take help make foul shots when we need them to make foul shots. The reason why he lost team seven because we got cooked by a father judge, player and writing and herder, commut and not the hot hard again, not set you're talking about. Were living by on hurry. Now we are. That's curry. They they should be the bad court for not the hard porn on. But I'm going to harp on his form and I'm going to hardcore and players who never can dream of city and be I watched the kid from Carol with excellent shot, jump shot form, and he he he, I don't know. He scored twenty, thirty points, whatever it was at Ryan this year, but he had perfect form on the jump shot with time. People in the Cris I can't Ben had perfect form when it jump shrouds. He's a professional basketball player and a kidded Carol has a hundred times better form and technique on his shot than is then this guy in the NBA. Does you need to make a video shooting videost like like another's olds VHS, say the bike eel in the black boarder, friend Chriss. I aim for that. You'll vet remember the little friend...

...or videos. If come, watch me, coach a gay. What was his name? Of Thomas, watch me, coach gave who was the name of that program to Tom Somebody. Yeah, it's a look, I'm I am, I. I am not blaming Doc. As far as at the end, they're saying that DOC, doc, doct throw, you know, doctrolling, been under the bus. That's messed up. I don't agree with that. Now, now the coach, and never you do that behind closed doors. That I have ever predt how and Jerald under the bus to detect him. They asked that's right. No, right after a prolayoff loss. You're right, but you were. Things have been said, but you ought to be more professional here. Don't do it to the Odavia. Doc was really hypocritical throughout the plashurere exact. If you don't think been special, you don't know basketball. That's what a man doesn't need to so doc is the issue. Dot babied him and then doctor him under the bus. Can't have both ways. DOC, you said all year, Oh, Ben doesn't have to be a score he does everything else elite. So then he doesn't score. And he asked him if you can be your point guard and you throw him under the bus because you're don't want to be on sports center because you're the coach. Is One of the most playoff series is in league history. DOC, rumors is a huge problem. Yeah, he is. So can I trade doctor Benny's? I still think it's been it was. Doc isn't the one that's out on the floor? Wow, a be just actually just sent this in mark from art. Is that for our group chat? I can't see what the six ser's the sixers took guards. Thanks Smitty for the season. The sixers took guards with backtoback first, severall picks in two thousand and sixteen, two thousand and seventeen, those two guards made a combined nine three pointers in Sixer's uniform. Wow, those two guards would be that how many eaters Ben in folks, look where. Look what that's from atd that's right. Yeah, but I mean, you think about it, that's that's that's your problem. When you draft first overall, two guards that hit nine combined three pointers. In a League where the most important factor of the game is the three point line, that's a problem. So let's we're got enough on Ben. We probably have a few bucks to the Ben John. That's true. It's it would be. We didn't totally get into the to the Joel piece of it, but I nate, we were talking before we came on the air. Nate has an interesting perspective on the tyres piece of it. Yeah, so I actually think it's actually a smart move by Rich Paul and the sixers. It if, if it's true that if you look at been right now, obviously you have a disgrunted star. He can't shoot it, exceed your EXCESA. We know the whole bend stores been sending story. But if you think about he has no value right now, like he really doesn't. No valcared. So when you look at that, you might get a starter for him in a pick like maybe you're not going to get an all star. You're not going to get a star are but the fact that Max, he's in his second year, he has a high ceiling, and then that he just came out and tore up the summer league probably might be the best player in the Summer League. You add him to the mix with Ben. If you think about that, you have to get a haul back for that. Yeah, there's nothing. There's there's no other way. I agree with you. So I don't know if it's strategy on the back end from the sixers and rich Paul, because it did right. It doesn't make any sense. He's he's going into a second year. You can't force him out. There's the six would never do that. But by adding him in there one you keep thiable. I think is another good thing. You don't even add tible, but Ben and Maxie, I think, gets you an all star back. I get you a maybe even a starter and a pit and you also got to think of it this way as your depth, as a deaf perception. If you're going out and trading for a star guard, example Damian Lillard, who everybody wants, what reason do you have to keep tyres Maxie then? Because Lillard just takes from all that. Right, lilar place thirty eight minutes a game. I agree with you, but I'm not throwing tyres maxie in a deal if it's for Damian veal or Lillard. Yeah, I am in a home. I said, if that, if it's not back in there. Yeah, but I'm not throwing Maxie a deal to get US CEJ mark. No, I would. I think that's what we're saying. Like you guys are like early you said hated on Ceg you say he's a walking then for luck he is. He is decent, but he doesn't do it for me. He doesn't a gift. He can give you fifty when. Listen, when's the last time he's put up fifty points? I think this past year. I don't think he played at all this year. I think he did too down at that when he was played that pickup game in metep the other night. No wine a playing at the why would an? He gave McConnell nate. I'm not going to argue that CE JIM mccollum isn't a goody. Was Your and straight. He's not a good he's a good score and he's a solid starter. But solid he's a he's just a solid starter. He's not a seri. He hasn't been an all star. And how many years he hasn't dropped fifty points? In how many years? Oh my God, you guys are killing me. He's I'm not gonna.

I think. I think the point that you made earlier, like right now, if you're trading Ben Straight up, you're getting buddy healed. Yeah, that excite anymore so if you throw in Max, he does that, but you we aren Fox, along with buddy hield. If I'm not a picky but what do you like? I'm not your re turn on at right now. So then I'll let them sit. I'M NOT gonna play to that game where I was taking. That's last six ers would do. I'm not giving I don't want Minnesota D'Angelo Russell, I don't want Malik Beasley, like I don't want them. That's not enough. Maury smarter to to not just give up, to not just give up penn. He's on a dollar for been. That's what I'm worried about. I don't think more he's that type of GM. I think he's willing to let him sit out and pay his fines if he wants to or play, which he won't play, but he might. Then you're gonna have to sit and pay your thinking mighty, I think, and then maybe your value goes up because, let's say this. Put it. Let's put this hypothesis out there. Let's say thirty games into the year, Fifty Games into the year, Portland stinks and dame once out. Boom, your value goes right back up for bed. I don't think so. I think it would. And you add maxie and your draft pick and maybe we're drafting or thible and you get and you get deem. Shout out the pass Sweeney coming in from Australia. Yeah, Whoa, I can I try man on that. You're not going to hear. You're going another shrimp on the mob. I've been. He's from PAT is a high school classmate of mine. Shout out the PAT tuned in from Australia and he's also been battling cancer for a while now and really hoping he pulls through. He's he's looking good. He's post a couple things on facebook about how he's doing it. It's been a while since he you know, he's been battling for a while, but he's doing okay. You and hoping all the best for him and hope he pulls through and thanks for listening from Perth Australia. Good luck. Good luck pat fight the good fight. I have a question to the toilet's really flush and reverse Australia. And also, what's the perception of been in Australia? Is He this? That's true. Is he this God, or is he you know, that's a great question. What is his perception? And thank you, Bible. I'd like to answer to that. So here we go real quick, because you guys are killing me with this CJ talks. I'm just gonna I'm just gonna put his numbers out there. His highs, I think, gave me at forty four to twenty, twenty five, twenty eight, twenty and twenty six, thirty seven, three thousand and twenty eight. Then, like you said, he got hurt for about twenty five games, came back, had ten eleven, thirty two, sixteen, Thirty Five, twenty two, twenty four, twenty twenty nine, twenty nine, twenty eighth and twenty and two, thirty, thirty three, ten twelve, twenty one. He's a welcome Goddamn. So it's like what twenty four, twenty four night on average. He's averaging about last year he average about about twenty four night. Yeah, what else does he do? As he could defensive. He's not the same, terrible any any guy you get back in return for been is not the same defensively. But we're not looking for a defensive no, no, I have to read some say if you're getting if you got to give up been and Maxy, then you're relying on thible to be the defensive player, other perimeter defender, your top perimeter. And then, let's not forget, and beat ain't no slouch either. No, no, no, he's Nikes that one. That's what made been so good on defenses, because he had him be behind them. Does milk? I don't think. Mccolms and needle mover for them in the east. You're out of your mind. I think. I think there are four or five seat if they trade this column. Just think about tatum, just oder like. That's what he is. This smooth offensively? I'll come on any I heard a lot, he's heard a ton. I don't hate don't think he's smooth offensively. Are you kid me? I mean I don't it's a little easier when you're next to Damian loward to. I don't hate if McCallum here, yeah, that be all sor that's a we dry being greedy. I don't hate that. If we get McCallum. But to me I don't mind. I don't think it makes them better. I think it probably makes them you don't think McCallum has team makes him better? No, because they lose a shit ton defensively. We're going to lose a shit ton defensively. And you just said. See, here's the thing. What does Ben do that thivell couldn't do? Not Play for his country. Apparently, talking to Pat Sweet, Pat Sweety said we love Matique, but not so much for been. Oh, I want to play for his country. So ben to selbody on this, like who else was selfish that just got kicked out of town. Apparently that's right. Is that number eleven? Yeah, car a dollar in the jar, it is. But he said he's weighing his options about the vaccine today. He's thinking I have the thing. I don't know. I'm McCallum. I just think they're the seam. I don't know if they're better. I don't think they're worse. They're not a one seed with him, are they? They're top, top, that's see, it's mill walk in Brooklyn or one and two. They're definitely there. They don't. I think they're so that fight with Bosson in Indiana. Five now are New York...

...as almost like it's like they're going to be a downgraded team with McCallum on his team. I think they're the same, and I said this the gym. I said this the gym earlier. When's the last time we've seen our pure score like McCallum on the sixers, on the six Jimmy Butler and Bead Butler can. Butler can score when he says shoot, but he's not a pure gap your shoes. Yeah, all right, to say somebody who can get the ball, I've I've Ros it. I wrote First Iverson. It's got. It's a person with the handles, the dribble, the step back. He can get a shot anywhere he wants, when he wants it. I just I just th think it. I just don't think it puts them over the top. I mean there's got to be something better out there right now. There isn't, not for bid. Yeah, that's a problem. Say, we're then being so devalued so that there isn't something hurting his value. Yeah, I don't think they realize that, like any coming out and saying all this is hurting the value. Shoot, the ball. Yeah, he's not coming here. Here's here's a question. Didn't think Zach Ertz would be here either, and look where he know. It's a totally different situation. I'm just saying, totally different situations. I don't think Zach Ertz never came out. Zach Ertz never came out, and I don't think Ben Well, Zach Ert Zach Ertz never got thrown on their bus. He never came out and dis this the team when did ARD to get thrown on their back. I think it's a different I think it did. Different situation because he could hurts. is towards the end of the contract and Ben is in the beginning arts back arches on his down slide. Ben's in his prime. I'm just saying we didn't think he would be back. I yeah, ability been plays. Let me throw this out there. If Max, he stays on the team, is he a starter? If you don't get a guard back? Yeah, yeah, I think he's a start. It's and if you think he earned and now was get any trade? Not what absolutely burned happy STA and and if you're rich poem Clutch Sports, why would you want to hurt his value? Because if you move Ben Simmons. That up tyres Maxi through the roof, because now he's just earning point guard. You know what the backstory is of why rich Paul's made at the sixers right? Because the whole thing with Netherlands? No, well, well, he get six food right now, right, because the sick by no. Well, yeah, microphones. You had phones to go ahead, not work, but anyway. You your mind too. I can hear you. Can you hear me? Hear how you so that basically they didn't. When he got a contract offer from other teams after he the mavs off of them, Rich Paul didn't present that to him. Sixers were one of the teams that offered him well and wanted him back and he never reported it. So then, after I gets prep Brown through this under the bus, I guess rich Paul's like now trying to do whatever he can to destroy Philadelphia, being petty. Yep, and that's Pat Sweeney just chiming against it. Don't trade been to a Callie team. I want it. I agree with that's what he wants. That's what he and I wouldn't do it either. I adread. I agree. If I get the Aaron Fox could trade him close to Callie. So I don't like Tony, like Portland and it's gets a rose. We're not going to get you all the way to Callie, but will get you kind of close Hou how's Mexico sound? Roses? That's right, you got traded John Take Murray. I forgot. I forgot. I'm sorry. All Right, did you guys? Did you get it all? I could trait. Can we make a trade the Turkey for Ben? What do you get back? First, brother, for coins brought Glenn. We'll take a whole team come back out of a great him. I would have called you firk the hold every day. I would have changed your name in my phone and nothing stopping, you know, stopping you from that was to close. There is another where you wager. Were you nervous at although, man, maybe would you would, you would have done it. I'd look, I don't well, troup my bets. My bets. I would have. How is your parents so?
