I am to ever ride as the intro announces. Following what happened last night in the FedEx format volume was only fitting that we have fast. We have an airing of grievances and I'm not really a pleasure being in big big believer in there he. Think it works and that's something all of us and we just talk now and the good news is you're gonna have your opportunity to talk about it a little bit later in the show and again myself and I'm Jeffrey Wright filling in for Jeff Hawkins who will join us in just a matter of mere. Set against. Behind the glass taking my C it is and its oil finished the day on man and an analyst I really appreciate you being there cognitive side. And are writing anything.

Hey I appreciate it just just know that Tracy is therefore you again. Last night the clippers defeated the grizzlies won 1498. A game that some tough to take a lot of positives from but. Britt talked about it we're gonna we're gonna help each other out we're gonna try and get down of the bottomless and that's what we're gonna do with Jeff Hawkins just a little bit. Coming up next segment we'll have Jason Smith will probably continue this as well as discuss an interesting comment they KJ Lawson made. That it's probably a probably applies to Jason Smith so we'll discuss that again we're gonna take your calls during the third segment. Coming up at 10 o'clock it should say at 1001 we're gonna do the 901 at 1001 with a partial Gilles Chris Harrington. Presented by 901 plumbing.

And then we've got an outstanding clip of the day today that I really really fired up about but. Before we do any of that. Let's bring in the man that is. That I should say the man that the show was named after so that would be Geoff Calkins Jeff good day my man. How are you. Yeah. That's that's that is that's that's more than church. All right so Jeff I've got three clips from last night's post game that I would like to play for. A collective I was not able to be exposed game given that I'm up here and arch so who got first. So first we have Tony Allen this was from the locker room. Last night immediately following the game. For the most horrible. I think we do wish they. News because I have flown was obviously much. Been a positive saying it won't let us we'll we'll we'll go anywhere so program because of I guess we try to run or go something. I don't think you put up. Just give backs that we are. This happened on people's massive. It's. Some guys are going to be better than. Obviously we won't beautiful turnovers. Few bags of was thought it. Such guy and that's Tony. That's Tony yeah. All right so let's go to Marc Gasol you know obviously Tony's probably going to be feel a little different than mark does given you know playing time circumstances or zero mark at the center. I think that's none of these guys are ones who once they have burned a couple times to get serious for a we feel isolated. Com. She'll immoral and and that's just under they did you know we haven't had a lot of plays and you don't do unfortunately. There's something. Goes. No I won't read. And and that would just I was OK then came back. Us Tuesday excuse me you know we're doing for and they. Sort of the they'll find. Wouldn't want. While you guys know from your son pushing match. Way too many forms of waffled. And then we really. An entire globe. We appreciate it and we don't accomplish froth and some you slow down and and put a lot of pressure off until we got to. Here throughout his sponsors yeah. Good man up and do your job as you can see all the way they satisfied no difference to you what it does not want you guys. No streak that's fine yeah. Expected that we didn't that we used to play here comes from the states every one. Aware of what's going on. So as mark. I. Regret that finally we're gonna get to the head coach David there's still this was his kind of his closing or you know kind of is closing argument if you will post game about. You know where where this team has. With a better releasing like this was specifically are you looking forward messages from these guys trying to fight. Yeah I want to see them fight their way out of it I wanna see collectively. You guys help each other through dilemma. You know individuals are on their own struggles and things like that help each other out through their stuff. He knows all used to have a saying you always say you got actively participating are rescued and it's. Funny how things are going to hear from you are from Europe mentor. When you go through adversity and that right now as the day domestic and in my in morning and then as we asked to. We ought to participate in our own rescue. Look at it and important. I mean obviously. It was different time for the mountain gorillas and. They have been throughout the last sixty years of them you know every everything a year something comes up. One and land it feels. You know there's a small crisis. It's crisis feels. If you also. A little different political wait until later that typical. And it feels a little different because of it really gets to the core of their identity and what struck me was a category quote. From David Tisdale. That he gets from Erik Spoelstra which is you have to participate in Euro rescue your actively. Participate. In Euro rescue. And yet what struck me it wasn't until it is. You know that. In terms of players. But he was an affront to the players well yes but not actively participate in Euro rescue. And I would suggest that it should also. If you also pertain to the coach she you have to actively participate. In his own rescue. From the minute they get every one of the good sleep problems or challenges. Is that doing what David Sigalet a lot of that. Respect the decision to sign Gemma Parsons. I'm a lot of it is. You know the collection wing players that we can get into that. It's been a minute a lot of it is rendered in many ways talent deficient the drafting your polyps everything we know that. As a result didn't you know the roster being. Less gifted than than people would want to be. But the truth of the matter is is that like. It's the old when your whole what do what do you do what stock they get a stand when he doubled down on me in her Ericsson. Brandan Wright thing. After it was. It was patently stupid and a bit scary to TrueCrypt. Eight as it was in fact indefensible. I nearly doubled Gallaudet and says we're gonna roll it out again. I don't know why people would like I would have been spun. Absolutely stunned that they won their game. And the people pull it out on exactly what we'll look pretty and that. You know and then people they'll get aren't. If they weren't the problem they didn't Bader parliament that particular point I looked between them editors which fourteen bit electric heat. While police guarding them and what why all of a sudden in the middle of local playoff race. In changing the starting lineup in order to put two people and it could then don't play thirty minutes between them. But what if it only if only Serbs it seems to me. To confuse every morning and so you doubt it was into the quotes. You have a if it can definitely increasing connected lists from the very beginning right and the weird thing is is that what has been produced is total disconnect. A disconnect between. About leadership RO a disconnect. About how they should play a disconnect on record. Or will it be fair and what you hear there what do you what your eyes and what you do with your voice. It's total confusion. About who they all and what they should do. And entity. To be so reflecting wrap. Into the lineup at this late date. People wondered how could David just do what brought you the truth that people are not supposed to be the same right to move things in a certain direction. Anything he did. Tweet and I try to market that was shooter he tweak things by moving people look at that she tweak things by. Liberating like to be. But offensively tweak things but little by little cooking the books are a lot of people like. And those things produce record a record that was better than people expected. But let them to impact the book of Ronald around and say OK now we're gonna do with why your blood. It bench Tony Allen and starting to Paris then and spent a lot of grain and start and the rise and like. What exactly is supporting and when you hear yesterday. What sort of opened with a framework compliance quote. I. I admire. The fact that David is solid not. Just content with getting into the fire you know that in the big picture. He wants to win the championship and that's what I can classical was about. What art is gonna settle but the truth and at a reduced it to you also we understand who you walk or what the limitation. And the reason they're. Some of I mean most of us in this city had been willing to quote unquote sell. For just making the playoffs and being and having a good showing in the playoffs. If there's an understanding of on the roster a gold you look at Iraq there ever critical trip per perimeter players besides might sound like Italy got Tony Douglas. Who got a Little League except for the good at least in her parents and whomever got it and the knicks player period. Under Carter who's forty. Index was a journeyman. Got a Parsons. Who brokered. Obama. The bears gear if it doesn't. It's it's. It's a bit of doubt for you know yeah who has never been able to crack the rotation anywhere on any consistent basis I should be getting more minutes than he does. But it's never been and so. The regular public quote courts could double if you look at recollection of Wacom what they have on the wing. And you say you know one. I am hard. Over achieving. Picking the collection of talent and eking out a few more wins then because liked black. Nearly all of its pay it but it's what you should expect you to closure. And they're very high what about a championship. I started in the Wimbledon championship it to start in a person. Strictly it's just great you are again I'm not trying to throw everything on an inherent sense. But what the political confusion come from. And the confusion came from these lineups and then and it seems to me the whole thing. The sort of lack of a lack of trucks or lack of trust that there's an eight starting with Democrats and situation. I don't and all of the that they would because they'll all but. I don't think that engenders the kind of on the court trust. I unpacked from the ball you know doesn't engender the kind of on the court trust. That leads to wins. You know score what does this article on at the plate if it and I opened that. These are kind of on the court for all that produces weapons and so now. You can get in Britain grind which is Kosher and I understand but what it wants organic can't be what it once was on the element to what he wants laws there ran out of what he once was. But you've taken at an if you try to shoot what you consulate. You're clicking it would young gifted players who got another court could score could Blige who can be an improvement on act. Although everyone golf for India if you want to be able to share how did you depart from. A rule that all four people willing to dream bigger and in higher. When they find in the content and the than people imagine that he will be held for. But when you take it and you replaced the weird. What what what what what what which shooters who killer who was supposed to shoot last night. Well to write it shoot it in dog but he can't shoot trying to drink and what you can read editor and can shoot. Well who liked. About all this were to put a different style basketball. Sub standard and yet wonders so yeah I'd I'd understand you can hear it you know a week. Tony was totally we don't we we got an identity whatever else. Mark was built a little less. With a little less we didn't. But you remarked that we have to start on the Internet we have to but you know that I better be whatever else and so not good identity Craig at this late in the commuter and or against it because we are. Portland tricks or backfield trying to lineup changes beginning look at the partial have been continuing what I thought your throat. I want to thank you bet Eric it's not just for players to have to participate. Actively participate in the rescue. It's the culture has actively participate in their little cute and that's not a couple of people look at her and her party. You know it's quite popular content pack you know stop in the like to know what other good things to create cap itself on the court that's what I peca. I think to your point I. You know I've Phillips even somewhat take a little bit of a compromising route given the fact that you know James Davis of late has not played very well. I feel like if they would have just stuck with what they were doing in the starting lineup you can even. He could even dig in on Chandler Parsons and everyone would have been OK because. Essentially what you're doing is. Irish in taking out to Michael grange Michael raised in what are your most consistent players that that makes absolutely no sense to me and then on top of that. Zach Randolph has been playing fantastic basketball he's one of the only guys that you can insulin. Shared given production every single night and I'm I'm a big brain and right into the same point. I don't understand what Brandan Wright did to deserve or did to earn minutes at dollars in what the other guys did to have their minutes cut so it. It's just a puzzling move it feels like. It feels like change for the sake of change which. Isn't necessarily good thing. Like it won't change to quote unquote grade this feeling right I sure would be idea. But it can't read the feeling what mediocre players at what she did. Was it temporary rate the feeling. But you could blow the hell out of four. And important. And yet they were there was something that they were solid that they were standing up and made you don't 500 dollars or five games over 500 dollar or whatever that's what they were standing out. And make it look back and just that OK here we go out wanna get blustery here. Brandon your aunt and an editor Eric and Aaron. And I think people all the hell out of the floor and at the ocean I'm just launched a ticket to the collection yeah law. Bought it in a day would sit dale. Stepped on the drafting. And that's on the trading them up and assigning them on the fact it did you know we are seven million. And quote local court war. If you're capable of doing what the course for once didn't even want a bit about what we're what they want scared. Look at self limited. They only got to a Western Conference final because of injuries. Oklahoma City. So even edit absolutely track record for was certain limitations. But you've taken that score or are you surrounded that would. No better talent than they've ever been a culture of Germany network has patent search. Like that's what they are. Yeah it's always. Broken down you know. And the pretty difficult got a round bump and then you say we're during an adult table. Well let's just do call I mean it's about its aspiration of all. It is due to call I have to say I'm trying to win the title well ordered Coca about one of the title. Well this group you're you're you're you're you're you're you're you're started the tradition. And it'll be accelerated this offseason I guarantee it. Because. I think. This crisis that we will leave and accelerate and an Irish vote you know intermediate. It pretty clear county will be gone after this year etc. And so this was a tradition here attributing it a bit for the longest time it was. The couple I mean you UBU negotiated. They're very tricky shoals. Back end up not being a starter he negotiated. You know changing the way that mark and Mike are you negotiating mood Michael Green at the very well be negotiated. What you leveraged all of that. Incredibly deftly. Out of your prince conviction. But that would send all the sudden. Sorry cocaine use. By inserting a better player good all I don't. It is just insist. Cricket adhere to what you what you get is hand. Secretly have always. Over achieve like you look at the point differential and probably when they should be getting and the people are astonished. A good every year they had more wins than their spokesman Internet and the numbers which could yeah. So why do they have more wins but they're posting their numbers would suggest. It's only because of pretty kind of there isn't accurate but it's good that first period of wouldn't do believe our. In if you break that spirit. Which I think if you you can argue is being done. You know bear and Bill Clinton with anything they need to kind of mediocre basketball. And and confused mediocre basketball great but let's be clear about what people love this team and the reason that is that is is the debate. Concurred in that spirit. And the fact that they consistently outperformed. Their power because that appear and if that spirit is now broken. I don't really know. You know I don't really know what there what there is a collection of players who really given it up that would not practically go about the so the question I didn't give. But what do you do now. You know what happens now. I said. After the Mets game. Yeah I thought David is built should just admit the error of new ways. And go back credit. Back. That the errors because they're so why look at if you didn't and they got blown out by the clippers it would create more of a crisis situation. And that will be off. Indeed he he didn't admitted error he's doubled down. He got blown out of the clippers all of which was only predictable. And our feel like look much more of a crisis all of which would let the public but a good book but what's predictable poetry cricket. And so what now. Once again. What could I hate you have to establish. Fox again you have that the players trusting each other again I'd ever coached in ID wherever there you have it it seems patently obvious. Put Michael Green back into the starting lineup. You know put Tony Allen back into the current water. And and and and could establish some level of competency. And I can't. And then there. And then go from there and now whether Troy dangled it seemed like he should be elevated becomes little accumulation to our site and has put food and incredibly. I would stop put the camera are due to nonsense I think that it's critical lack of trust through but that may be above David you're dealt I'd. But ya stop digging when you have the poll stop digging look at. Why can't we we have seen a couple free fall you know let's stop the freefall. And you stop the free file for all about going back to what was good about. It it's not perfect. Well sort of you know tornado has not been a great going element here. But why not. It's that featured mark Mike Tony Allen and Michael Green as starters was glued it up. It hit you smack into the middle of the Western Conference or a place. And yes it's flawed but it was good enough to do that so what I like start by going after the hour. And then go from there are still could have been an affecting main games remaining we build atmosphere at some level of competence what are you get us. Fixed pixel leak in the end. Actually first and then you can pave over and worry about repairing it later but fix that first. Well they're different ball even if you wanna turn yourself into something other than what you while the ball he'd like to you know that I get kind of perimeter players. And help secure water has. If you if you have if you don't get get get a version of Andrew Harrison. Who had been an inherent sense like who who can do what you American Dick Anderson can do but can actually do it. Can get a shock for example. You can you pack if you need if you got that you feel lucky to get me out here. Try to figure out a way to get better and LC. But it won't attention again. It had been successfully transition and they hadn't just political blow everything that the way they used to do. You recruit they had big party changed a lot of credit. Until then to book at all they have this new toy brand of right. And because you're dissatisfied. With Tony Allen and suddenly intrigued by Internet sites and it's great to predict it it's crazy and it is it's it. It separately apple cart in a way that you know people are wondering you're out of luck are looking dazed and saying who are. And that's not. That's not what you want but you gotta get our checks.

Now back here on the Jeff baucus should Jeffrey Wright filling in for Jeff Hawkins chapel joining us again next segment. When we will be taking your calls as well. But joining us now he is the host Jason and Johnny can hear it right here on nannies none of them. From eleven to two every weekday Jason Smith chasing today on what. Man. So little that's not much at all settles on some does the sun came up. It's certainly it certainly. Hopes that these discounted dumpster fire right now. Do you think it feels like a dumpster fire. Because this is where this is what I start. Does it feel like a dumpster fire. Because. The clippers came into the building. Following up following a horrific loss for the nets usually no getting around right perfect all the nets then. Quote unquote one of your biggest rivals comes in. On your own building second night of a back to back an absolutely waxes the no fire though fire on the driver. Especially in the second half. That's the thing. Especially when it. I believe. Believe that I play the game was like five or six points in the second quarter the clippers going on 110 Ron Mason should put it away. Mean they really closed out the third quarter horned goat when he and that point guard that was hammered out often if you will. So this is what I wanna ask. So much has been made of the roster so much and made a blind changes. To me it feels like what David is tilted starting on Monday night with the with a new line changes. It felt almost like a panic. Because I say that. Because. It seemed like all right we he was rolling with with what it worked for the calendar turned when he seventeen new. Cents. New Year's Day they were fourteen and fourteen same point differential Ottawa. They're fourteen and fourteen it and it felt in his mind that this wasn't working I gotta be some profanity some all right coach on the head coach on the guy that gets w.s and l.s I got to do some. Yeah and I think we all we're all good without a good good it felt like it here to live under your I think are what we want we were saying. You have to shake something not sure yet to be some rising. It was stale I disagree with and it was stimulus that was can scale look I mean that that this team defensively has been has been awful and and I picked. You're shaking it up more at this point to get people who play with effort defensively get this team back to what was defenseless like of of OK they've lost what seven of their last ten. Yeah also said that and I think five. In five of those losses. Other opponents shot well over 50% one among the Dallas shot 49 what they're just given a book it's left and right in teams are doing whatever they wanted to know it's the so you had to do something. Right to get it back it's what they did which is what we what we said look I don't Anderson. Was the only guy and and and plus and plus minuses yesterday and all that stuff but. He's not an upgrade okay if you're if you're looking to change the future of this team or try to get us out of mediocrity kind of like you pointed out. Engineers and ain't gonna get you there and and that's I think that's where it it feels like whoa what are you don't like we understand. We understand that you had to shake it up. But I you shaken and not what do what do you do when you. What looks like you're doing is this an awful lot of your veteran players a lot of guys that only lose you lose more doing that sure you know that you're gaining about growing and Andrew Ayres. To me what is it feels like is the situation in which. You know that roster you know it's inherently flawed and you're trying to do more do more. How hole in he lying hell can your answer be let's create a lineup in which injury here or send. And Toney Douglas played more right. I mean let's be real doesn't improve ready and is exactly but it all stems from either jets making the point of the wing players and I agree with them on that. But another another Brill Brill problem and you've noticed a problem all year is the fact that you don't have a backup point guard mean. And so because you don't have a backup point guard you're trying to kind of mask that fact. Yet it seemed like it change was let's play the backups more ripe deposition there. I'm not a genius but I'm pretty sure playing you're playing here weaker players doesn't fix any. Thing are we said it before you know talk them all fair. There's a point where you you are what you are and in you've made some great points he's he's done great things he's he's changed things with my keys change things for the future. Us Mike Mike is playing more aggressive offensively it's fantastic mom and and part of that is good because he asked to chair chain and I'm sure next year. That may scale back a little bit he's more or more the playmaker it to get a helping Chandler Parsons but still about what's with this all you unlocked. The long range of capabilities you've done things for the future. That looked promising. At this point though you are it it feels like you are what you'll. Okay you're not gonna get any better for next season with a engineers and an air balloons or Michael gray who's been who's daybreak Tuesday. What you've done essentially it and put those guys isn't. Is is is again I go back out on a listen what Tony Allen says after the game. Dude. Here's a guy that say and clearly. We got to go back to what we are. This trying to run with team staying that we're doing offensively it work and it's taken us away from what we are and you've got to feel like there's a fashion guys and there are like that so you got physical in one direction. All right in and a couple of players below another you know if Tony Allen's among them that's power and it pulls you off and and that's why we've seen. Struggled so much defense would go there now on the same page all the week these shake ups have led to them all going off in their own directions and further. You mentioned you mentioned Tony yells and they were trying to run and gun these guys. And then David this still comments time and time again or too slow right what do you do you feel like a Big Ten team trying to spread the field and throw the ball vertically LTD kit do. Eight at it and I understand it. Jeff I would understand it more if they want in the playoff race right things then you can throw it and see what else you got Enders on what are playing as much want to see if he's going to be anything measures he would it does. But you've got you've got vets. Who Freddie to have armed are used to go on playoffs and used to make no is okay and right now there's they're they're struggling in the seas one to seventeen games left but also at NASA and they look like they've lost their duty completely. You've got that they're used to being in a. So at this point. During a playoff race went. You've done so much already I realized it get us out of mediocrity. Improve this for the future but you've done all you can't at this point with with a way that rosters totally concede that it yes. You've got you can't at this point to improve for next season so remember the phrase how about playing to win now about getting everybody back on the same page whether it's. You don't vote throwing Tony back in there I'm fireworks that come off the bench and he's been fantastic I think that's been one of their improvements what he's been able to get him give him in the second unit. But mango throw Tony back and get the at Pristina playing defense again. Health choice Daniels has hit shots every time you put him in budget but you'd you rarely put an end I don't let die that's a whole other thing I don't understand are realizing that he doesn't help you much defensively. But gosh she. At least he gets threes Christine. Good lord and he's barely playing Jason Smith the co host of Jason Johnson joining us right now. Not a playoff race just like I don't understand this you're the bottom of the west you just. You know pulling straws to see what works. You know it works I understand building for the you know you you wanna change the dynamic you wanna make this team a contender in EU UC you'll. Admit that there's been a ceiling playing the way that they play. We did make some changes that raise that ceiling I agree with you completely armor but it is certain point when you're just trying to grow for the sake of growing. Actually exact prostate cancer cells. We are glad that you're not like I was pretty good luck that's that's that's the whole point click at a certain point when your urged. We just at best buy trying to raise the ceiling. You are blowing up your floor new edit this point you've done all you can do it takes a moment to step back neo. Maybe we the goals to win a championship. Rome wasn't built in its bright. And I feel like at this point your entire objective has to be we have to figure out a way. We we've done all we can do at this point and growing our current now we have to maximize what we we gotta get back. Toward look this is at what the same players this was a top five team defense in defensive efficiency this season yeah this the change is what I currently playing. Better you know more aggressive offensively or does this all stepping outside this thing was top five and offensive efficiency right now looks like a bottom five team and defensive efficiency don't get that back. So you can take it into the playoffs forget the rest forget the growth for nick sees it we get to the rest of that in the in the offseason the pre season. Okay let's get this thing back to where you're you know you've got the players to do it. Because you've done it before you've seen this season let's get that back. Going into the playoffs forget the rest of the growth path. I mean out you've got to get these players back on the same page at this point and that's why I thought we'd see fizz they'll come out and look you can't put this on Andrew hairs of what he wasn't awful last. But it's it's it's eight he symbolic of this kind of shake up and it's the moves that you know all week even the players a question at this point you gotta do what you gotta do to get them back on the same page. And get it you are what you are. And the scene we know can be a fantastic defensive unit right now there's so far away from that it's silly but got to get back to yeah I think I think. For January 1 I think they were something like that third overall. Most efficient defense and now they're like eighteenth it's unbelievable the drop off. And it's all it's it's it's what makes it unbelievable it's the same guys so you know its effort you know it's guys being on the same page guys trusting each other you've scattered there's so much Sarah. Guys are doing that and it it's it's the it's terrible it's it's it's not it's ugly to watch teams or did whatever they want it's the bears. Absolutely it bears. Before let's ya gotta ask you. So tiger say such reported no 1 o'clock. What advantage and also from yesterday not the prisons but as of ten cents basketball. KJ Lawson mentioned that this is kind of a bittersweet. Time. And for him. But I thought that the reports were fake news that all men are you well you know united as Jeff. Does that you know how hard it is in the streets man. You try to report some news you know what you think of facts which no more facts and and they tell you it's not right man but that's OK that's OK you know a good look at. I still think digital also will sit down with tubby Smith and he drove his mom and all that and elect a decision. I'm telling you is that decision's been made for sometimes it's got cards are out there that day and tubby you may not have been informed of it it when they made the decision but yet. Look at us some big changes. I looked. Here's the thing what's gonna happen with Koehler now. Yes I feel like deedrick is going up and I think KJ kind of alluded to that yes they pretty. Pretty pretty pretty fair us also that bullied without a home yeah that's what happens with Ki Lin KJ says he's come back they'll get that in Asia that's it. Any kind of way you look at that's good news for this program to about a guy that. You know third in the in the AC in rebounding yeah he's got his issues but at least she got something now that you know that you know. At least slocum our I can give thirteen and eight from the sky and hopefully next year it's even more than that that's a big bets that's of because look at one point look if if deedrick if everybody leaves this thing all mad indicated pulls out more than he got death and police with JJ you've got. And all rookie down rookie of the year and AAC when she got something coming back to go with this. You know recruiting class that most people are very excited about. Rome wasn't built and I now go take a while Jason we appreciate you joining I spent that is Jason Smith. As Dave Tisdale alluded to during his Thomas that we are at the top of the show.

And for Jeff Hawkins who was in Hartford he will join us in just a second we're talking about actively. Participating in the rescue of the Memphis Grizzlies we welcome back now to the show Jeff Hawkins Jeff welcome back glad you're here. I'm glad to be back out the active participation that you invited me out. We invited the listeners heard to suggest what they wish to suggest. We have in fact let's go to Roger. Let's let's see how Roger would actively. Participate in the grizzlies rescue Roger how are needed in a man. I am don't bite they know that your guys. Yet. Great question I think they've got a great. I think one thing he did bring Elian back I haven't been battled. Back immediately to pick it. And it. And they another small getting to digitally encoded at a game if you guys are ready right at being used in more adequate and that they. You know the way that my college market outlet but they definitely or great great night that it it brought back at. You know I haven't been valued that it ego at the dark of early eating dealing openly doubt. Another thing I think that they issued but Brandon Knight that it ought not eat that much or let it clear that he. Arkansas I think it was an edit that out we didn't win the opening bit. Eight and I think we may be watching you intently out work any act or. Another behind it is if you could start that end up I don't know why haven't gone back back. Yet they. Thank you it's. It appreciate call Roger. It's. It's changed intimate look at all the others most of the outrage is directed. At the end of Ericsson. Things start starting I think to break the mirror and certainly that we're at the right one is curious as well and it should. It's because in the air and who do you have for breaks it got mark is currently got a ball. You got to see you have to pull he's been incredibly productive. And you've got to Michael Green there's been one of your most productive player all year law. In the playoffs you really going to play the supply because parent has made a you've really got to play four Bakes. Eight you know effectively in the clubhouse. I don't feel. And so so whereas I understand that Reverend Wright has some. Some talents that you'll want to exploit as Roger points out I think about some of the things that that offensively that he can do uniquely. It's an mattered to me. I like the Brandan Wright experiment for this summer when they will doubtless lose a big whether mr. Michael grain or Zach Randolph. But this is another example of why the hell are we go on this staff to go back to what you war. And you know and then what a numbered in order to bring. Over the summer. Yeah I mean to me what makes it the the point he's making his you're essentially playing Brandan Wright eight. Essentially the same way he played so Michael Green except for Michael greens better did you like agree that predator right let's go out. Eight about it offenders but the other and he's. You're butter sugar and you don't action should not walk so I gardens that. Let's hear Leon how well Sierra Leon and actively participate in the grizzlies rescue league alma from the show moment. Yes thank you. The way out there and actively anticipated to improve greatly through this piece. You know. These guys who are hired. To coach please leave our patent vision as a result. Because based supposedly can't have that knowledge. And the experience. To do did you are. Now. These NBA. Gains. Are extremely difficult to win this through an extremely. Difficult to job their job to do. So what I was rejection. Not only to us society and but I also put that play. To appreciate and respect. The position that the coaches that he had. To be willing to Colin bell tee. Because they do have the experience. And me and every bit knowledge. And I like to ask a question of all of Russian. Any light at bat and what makes us great date we have all been asked to play together. I think that's a good question I think our panel I certainly don't claim to have all the answers. I do think that. I currently have actually done a good bit. This question of how much changed the course for in this group. Is willing to accept as the one that we have seen a long time prior to me we certainly saw a 180 acre when he first came in is that. Yes your approach. He liked David citadel rookie head coach. And in the end the players all the changes that. He wanted to make its players don't just willfully blind Willie except change gears and backed group very clearly balked at what aviator wanted to do. I don't think this group has been pretty open to change. Certainly due to start to the year we'll look McCain delete both global trademark look the chain articles over the change I think there actually capital but the change. I think what co wrote in the end though that that's not just based on higher. It's based on trust and at the beginning of this season you'll hurt all the players to a mail went on and on and on about how. People will be used in David illegality and got to do if I'd. And idiotic followed through a bloody bad he was straightforward and we heard about what an unbelievable communicate every others. And so they were open to a change in a way they have never been elbow betrayed before we totally. And yet we hadn't I think it man. That ruling yes still is based on asked to be based on something. And so we get back to the Chandler Parsons saying. But can blood started to co wrote to some extent that faith and trust each I'm gonna do but the boss. Well 'cause with their own eyes and they are saying oh my god but also got a makes sense with what. What what I see them and upload them but he's not ready to play. And that is being thrust upon us and so I think about kicked out and I think beat the and they look at. It was once again last night he started the starting lineup. Who has never player had never played before the start I don't think ever played before period but certainly not a good starting lineup. Like I when he did what universe is that makes sense down the stretch run on the speed and so. Putter felt just a based on hire key accepting orders of their coach pay. I think they've been very able to change but what I I think that. The truck that you saw earlier in the year has started to grow the debt until like whether we're qualified or not qualified. You know I. I guess I guess we could we could we could sit here and say that every coach and make the right decision and every general manager I'd make the right decision. And therefore. However president picks the right decision. Why it wouldn't second guess a politician. Or why can second guess the coach or like your own technician general manager. All Waikiki which I guess anyone could say no more than we did. Well first what part of a lot of sports it's not their serious part of other sports is sort of second guessing and evaluating and thinking what you would do differently just because someone who is in good condition did not hit the ball position that could make. Are right I think most of us didn't make the big lakers assistant playing. Jeff green was correct I think most of us Chris Wallace was you know. A better personnel man knows more about personal but I do. I think we're okay you criticized the draft pick pushing for speak to consult what is in a position of authority doesn't mean that you can't. Have a question about how well they exercise that authority. Daniel you've been on the line for quite a bit. Tim what would you do to actively participating grizzlies rescued. Gentlemen good morning in law and say well I'll ask my age saying god didn't speak out and hampering yeah okay. Did you see my friend get a boyfriend Bobby yeah. Yet to your point I'm I don't criticize you got the media because honestly. You're being admitted is to do which you go and and if you take that away. Then there's no industry there is no money at it if if not don't work by. Also I do want to say they'd. He he'd like I wanna respect to be available late in other coaches I can't mistake what he coached the greatest player LeBron that he's been around a championship pedigree. And do what what he does it might not make sense to me lit. Good look at it. Playoff basketball scholar play you know great guy and I'd much love love it is the identity. There we've been hurt because a couple of feet then go to the most important part of the year because of that double play well a veteran team Michigan developmentally. I would get a couple of destructive process. Understand what in the playoff Israel reset button. And give bread and butter which is pretty consistent and gonna have to be there and all the other piece of wood on at the plate if Pete payment for a championship without bigot got up there. Based upon the person fail and then try to add to the Pentagon cake yet they get occur. I Tweety being like six foot box like large I don't care what this deal that I mean NBA because of the nature of that size of their position. They're cold then you pretty much wanna stick with them. We're gonna be cut and I play outstanding local doesn't bug valuable and getting to the basket valuable began to slow down and it could not eat the how could finish up one point broke pick but why are. You better look at mr. Bryant shock while I want -- little bit better coming out of that group called Babel Blackhawk. Andre Miller the gold ought to not would get not even. Great player gonna come back to become the the luck. You kind of want to work at blue and you know my biblical game going I'll go I want a truck and because he had championship pedigree that nobody knew that they did bulk calling Ellen had it. What you really want them edible Peter and Bob and what do you what they did update the blog I play any got a cult he will hook you squad beat Italy would market Kennedy hit a great great bar but I. At that time of winning a championship. Strictly from their perspective we have to allow the process to take hold. And when you know create opinions. Part of with the money didn't I never like let it play out but it won't sell it to open a playoff. And then after that moment in golf the week sink playoff basketball to really good A championship outfit pink coat global. OK not a bit about the bad go to bed. There we can't really get a true color assessment of what he's doing what he would go on but you know I appreciate it. Appreciate it Daniel Oates two more better. I actually wonder. Jeffrey if the fact that he coached LeBron James. Hasn't and be in some ways skewed. Incentives. Of credit. You know because most players aren't a project they don't ask Charles he'd like LeBron James goes and I can't play like LeBron James dust and so. The couldn't believe it but recently won a title it's not because they felt aspired to win a title there to conclude what Andre is ideal water but it adjustment. Could go from coaching. I've got level place would vote aspirations are reasonable. And America's resort because they're more. We get to more what we got her old hustle. Let's get to mark mark would you do to actually participate in the grizzlies rescue. Well I'm first tomorrow. My son redundancies. More. It was so soon ticket holders of the very warns us we love basketball decidedly used in the state and argue that the whole time you're. We got Ali's garden return employ union we don't pressure the ball and it looks like it's. Opposed to a good point guard the good moments particularly take the ball and run right down. Well nobody in front of him nobody stops them all and knock in the backcourt. And they haven't come all the way to the rim without ever even turn to stop well. There won't you do that your options and you're defense. Aren't very good. You know there are no listen I. No there's no question mark that that one of the big problems is the fact that. Point guards are able certain penetrate the lane so easily I would guess are up and finally let's go to chuck chuck would you actively participate in the grizzlies rescue. Hey you're the appreciate it McAuliffe you know to me up with explosive guard chemistry and leadership the good or heroic.
