Speaker 1 (01:15):
How are you swimming?

Speaker 2 (01:17):
Lessons on?

Speaker 5 (01:19):
I'm doing good. I'm doing really good. Thank you for
having me, and yeah, I'm psych for the finals. I'm
stuck to break down all the latest gossip.

Speaker 2 (01:30):
Just texted me.

Speaker 6 (01:30):
We had to get Philly to the finals one way
or another. I don't appreciate that. To bar, I don't
appreciate it. That's poor taste. And I think it a finals.

Speaker 1 (01:40):
Okay, yeah, ezamber three ring a bell, there's two thousand
and one ring a bell.

Speaker 6 (01:46):
I think it doest thing about the wa That was crazy.

Speaker 1 (01:53):
That was great. Let's live in that moment. We stepped
over you.

Speaker 6 (01:56):
That was one small step for Ai, one giant leap
for mankind in Philadelphia.

Speaker 2 (02:04):
One giant conversation piece all we have for.

Speaker 1 (02:10):
We put the pressure on, though, didn't we We put
the pressure on. We did.

Speaker 6 (02:14):
It's that time of year, one of my favorite times
of the year when I get to root for a
great player who I never would otherwise get to root for.
In this case, Luka donca, Oh, this is gonna be.

Speaker 2 (02:29):
I can't wait, man, this.

Speaker 1 (02:31):
Is gonna be.

Speaker 6 (02:32):
It's gonna be like going to a horror movie and
getting to cheer for Michael Myers.

Speaker 2 (02:37):
You know, Oh, okay, I get I get to cheer
for the bad guy.

Speaker 6 (02:41):
This is yeah, because I can't, like, I never know
what it's like to root for these people until they
play the Celtics in like a very high stakes situation
and uh.

Speaker 5 (02:53):
Yeah, yeah, yeah, you're a backcourt with no muscle definition
on their arms whatsoever. Are the team for you? And
that's why I've been pulling for them all year. My
mad exactly facing off again, I want to see myself
on the court. Yeah, and that's what I see, exact
same exactly.

Speaker 1 (03:13):
I want to two barns straight from I want the
Deltoy definition of a lego. Man, you know what I mean?

Speaker 2 (03:22):
And that's what we get. It's this is going to
be gri I mean, look, Luca, he's leading pretty much
everything except blocks. It feels like going into this finals
and you might.

Speaker 1 (03:32):
Be leading that most points, most rebounds, most assists, most steels,
mostly pointers, yeah, most lucers.

Speaker 2 (03:40):
I mean he's got one ever. Yeah, No, that's that's
pretty good.

Speaker 1 (03:45):
Steele.

Speaker 2 (03:45):
I didn't see Steel's coming.

Speaker 6 (03:47):
He's like a good He's a smart player on offense,
obviously demonstrably so on defense. He's always in the right position,
and it feels like so, I don't know, I think
he's pretty good at basketball. Oh what do you guys say? Yeah,
I'm a little crazy like that.

Speaker 2 (04:03):
I don't want to go that far. Yeah, jury's out
on this guy.

Speaker 6 (04:08):
All that being said, if they were to win the
series the Mavericks, they would tie the twenty sixteen Cleveland
Cavaliers as the third biggest underdogs to win the NBA
Finals behind not not like heading into the playoffs, like
heading into right now. They would be the third biggest
underdogs to ever win, behind the two thousand and four Pistons.

Speaker 2 (04:31):
That one came out of nowhere. We don't even know
who they beat wins championships.

Speaker 1 (04:38):
Yeah, I've never heard of Ben Wallace. I don't know
what Detroit is as a concept. I don't even know
if anyone was in the finals that year, But I
guess I'll take your word for it.

Speaker 6 (04:47):
The Raptors who beat the Warriors, and then the Cavs
who beat the Warriors. Yeah, the Raptors one was pretty
much like that. There were two major injuries, so like
that that kind of a split that one. Yeah, yeah,
but yeah, this would be so this would be just
a wild upset. The Celtics, as we've been talking about

(05:09):
all year, are a historically great team, and yeah, it
feels like one of those things where we get the
media narrative, like we get a bunch of momentum built
up in the media narrative, and then we see a
couple of games, then it's like, oh.

Speaker 2 (05:25):
Right, the Celtics are really good.

Speaker 6 (05:27):
Yeah, but everybody is the Celtics are so uh you know,
the Celtics are such the Celtics that I feel like
this is the first time the Mavericks have been like
the public.

Speaker 2 (05:41):
Team, the team that everyone's like, yeah, right, yeah, Jack,
I am oh good? No no, no, no, no, no,
I don't want to know a jack of I don't
want to anymore.

Speaker 5 (05:52):
The moment passed of those teams that you mentioned who
had like the biggest upsets ever, I think the MAVs
other than that those Calves teams, but even the Calves
really only had I wouldn't even count Lebron or I'm sorry,
like a Kevin Love in that situation as a second star,
where the MAVs have two massive stars and like I think,

(06:16):
unassailably so, whereas those other teams, like the Pistons, were
kind of like a sum of its parts, you know,
like better than the whole or if that's even a phrase.
But I do think this is an interesting one where
they do have a good supporting cast and two bonafide superstars,
where those other upset teams kind of didn't.

Speaker 6 (06:34):
Yeah, it's interesting because the Celtics are kind of a
super team that is like that a little bit, like
they're a super team that isn't like dominated by like
one great player.

Speaker 2 (06:46):
And they're home grown too, like those guys were drafted. Yeah,
I wish I didn't dislike them so much. The story
so harsh and beat.

Speaker 1 (06:58):
They're gonna be so hard to be Like you think
about that, the eight Man of how they can all
shoot threes. Yeah, it's it's just gonna be I don't know.
I mean, I I again as we you know, last
week we're I think we were with Warren Shaw and
he was being very kind to us as a Celtics fan.

(07:18):
Is I was having an existential.

Speaker 6 (07:21):
Come on, he's it all Celtics fans come on condescending, Yeah,
just condid Like the fact that he was being so
nice that it was condescend was a shot.

Speaker 1 (07:31):
He was taking shots by being like, well, I'm not
as confident as you are, and like, oh, you're not
as confident as I am.

Speaker 6 (07:39):
Yeah, listening to the Bill Simmons podcast this week, because
he like believes in jinxes and like magic and he
so he was like talk talking about how the Celtics
are like a super team and like under rated and
all all the things like this would be one of
the biggest upsets. And then he's like, but yeah, I
think like the Madsen probably like I wants you know,

(08:04):
He's like, I think the MAVs probably like the.

Speaker 1 (08:06):
Thing is a reverse jinx. Doesn't work just because you
articulate the thing you have to the universe. No, when
you wanergetically, Yeah, and I think you like seven. But
he was like it's really good, Luke is gonna like
do great.

Speaker 6 (08:21):
And I was like, you don't actually believe this, bro,
I sus fans are just they're trying to make themselves
the underdog while also being just so confident.

Speaker 1 (08:34):
To a to a degree that is it's hard to
occupy both because I get it. It's it's such a trap, right,
It's either we're gonna win, don't worry about it, or
you have to contend with like what if you lose?
But what if you lose? And that that makes you
have to be like, well, you know, you never know
what because you don't want to be the person taking
the l on the chin by being like, what happened? Man?

(08:56):
I thought I thought it was a cake walk because
you were you were old this for all the years
of dominance kind of thing.

Speaker 2 (09:02):
I would just go with what Bill Simmons says.

Speaker 6 (09:04):
I actually so I agree whatever Bill Simmons says, but
only on movies, because I think he has the best
taste in movies, best analysis of movies. I because I
like to watch a movie and be thinking the whole time. Yeah,
but who's winning this scene?

Speaker 2 (09:20):
Who's winning this winning this scene?

Speaker 6 (09:22):
It's every movie is a competition between different people, and
I want to know who's who won that scene, and were.

Speaker 2 (09:29):
They on Apex mountain, Apex whatever they say.

Speaker 5 (09:33):
Pack a mountain. It's a Lama based reference that no
one understands.

Speaker 1 (09:40):
Luca's knee was something that came up in the press
conference and he was asked like, hey, man, you've got
about four days off so far, how's the knee? And
he said it didn't get any better. Some people are
taking that as to be like, oh, no, well it
to me, I think he's gotten this far and he's
doing a said job. If this feels like a bit

(10:02):
of mind games, a little bit like you probably want
to put your opponent to like enter this this series,
like with every bit of confidence or overconfidence you can
get out of them to hopefully sucker punch. I don't know,
but I don't know if that's much of an issue, but.

Speaker 6 (10:16):
Does remind me of the fact that for every series
up to the Minnesota series, people were like, yeah, but
Luca must be hurt, like the way he's playing, like
he still was doing enough to win. Yeah, if he
looks like ninety percent against the Celtics, like I think

(10:36):
they're going to lose, So I don't I'm hoping that
that's just gamesmanship, that he's gonna come out.

Speaker 1 (10:43):
Could you imagine he's like, man, I'm cooked, y'all, I'm sorry, Yeah, yeah,
Denny is scrambled eggs. What can I say?

Speaker 2 (10:51):
Good luck to everybody, you know, I'm just hoping helping
I walk out of here.

Speaker 1 (10:54):
I'm my two feet.

Speaker 2 (10:56):
Wheels himself out of the room. He plays two and
it's a night and it's like, oh, he wasn't kidding,
Oh no, yeah, two points close up of his knee
when he was walking.

Speaker 1 (11:08):
It looked like someone's playing with a lie.

Speaker 2 (11:09):
Those stress toys to believe the amount of flex that
was in there.

Speaker 6 (11:13):
The Celtics are the first team in the twenty eight
years for which we have play by play data to
statistically be the best team in the regular season plus
eleven point seven points per one hundred possessions and in
each of the first three rounds of the playoffs.

Speaker 1 (11:28):
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's the math there.

Speaker 6 (11:32):
So I think the thing that, like, you know, there,
there's the history them being the Celtics, them being Boston.
People generally don't like Boston teams. But I also think
there's just something that's like kind of unremarkable about Tatum
that makes people just like not, you know, not want
to root for him for whatever reason. And I think

(11:53):
that is what is blinding people to what a big
mismatch this series could be.

Speaker 1 (12:00):
Now.

Speaker 6 (12:00):
Granted I am reverse jinxing them, and I could see
a world where the Mavericks win, but Boston is is incredible.

Speaker 1 (12:08):
Yeah, they're they're great, They're great, and yeah, yeah, where
it's as much as I want to, I have a
I just don't. Well we'll see, well, well we'll get
our predictions later. Maybe I'll maybe I'll have a change
of heart.

Speaker 2 (12:20):
Let me just put my head in the books and
figure out how they can pull this off. You'll figure
it out. I think you are right to where there.

Speaker 5 (12:27):
It just hasn't been exciting with the Celtics at all,
you know, the entire and you have these two absolute
super so they're just not like weird, but they're so
good where you know they're they're just great players who
are normal guys, seemingly normal guys, and it's it makes
you forget. You don't watch them in the same way

(12:49):
that you like you watch I think people who are
you know, maniacs.

Speaker 1 (12:52):
So yeah, but I agree with you about like ruthless
winning teams. It's not it's not always about the excitement.
It's just about I'm your deadly efficiency of being like, yeah,
what do we need to win? Okay, we'll get it done.
Yeah yeah, And then you're like again, but we well,
we'll see, we'll see, we'll see. Should take a break, Yeah,

(13:15):
let's take a quick Break's take a break, all right,
let's take a quick break.

Speaker 2 (13:18):
Yeah, let me get my head right now.

Speaker 1 (13:21):
We'll come back for some.

Speaker 5 (13:21):
Predictions, and we're back, and we're I love the idea
of a host who needs to take a break to
get their head, right, it's not it's not for advertising.

Speaker 2 (13:41):
There's no advertising.

Speaker 1 (13:43):
Guys. I need to take a break.

Speaker 5 (13:44):
Guys, I am I'm losing it right now. I feel
physically I'll be I'll be back when I can come back. Okay,
I gotta take.

Speaker 2 (13:53):
That back, all right?

Speaker 1 (13:54):
All right?

Speaker 2 (13:54):
That was three days. We're back after day break.

Speaker 1 (13:58):
Yeah, for a three day crisis. Yeah. My voice sounds
a little bit different because I have trying to wrap
my head around it. I mean, this was something we
were talking about on the discord, asking everybody Finals, winner, Finals,
m VP, unsung hero predictions. See a lot of stuff
out here, See a lot of stuff, See people saying
a lot of a lot of Celtics fans. Then I

(14:20):
get it because so because the statistics say they're gonna
put the smack down. Okay, that's one way to look
at it. What about those of us.

Speaker 2 (14:27):
That live in a world of pure imagination?

Speaker 1 (14:32):
Can I just give you my Can I give you
my prediction?

Speaker 2 (14:34):
Let's hear it. Yes, MAVs in four maps and four.

Speaker 1 (14:41):
I needed a break. I needed a break to get
my head and I did MAVs in four okay or
MAVs in seven okay? Okay, can I tell you why though,
We'll still want this is what the MAVs gott to do. Basically,
Boston can't play as good as they normally do and

(15:01):
the MAVs have a chance.

Speaker 2 (15:02):
Do they have to ask them to do that? Or
you think it's just it's gonna see what happens.

Speaker 6 (15:07):
How So, rude if Boston came in and like played
the way that they normally do, like because we're like
America wants to see the Lucas story exactly.

Speaker 1 (15:17):
Exactly and their class act. So I can see them
doing that just for the good of the game. And
then yeah, actually no, I'm switching it to I'm switching
itt to Celtics and for okay, no, you know what
MAVs is seven go back. That'll feel better. That's gonna
feel the best for me as a Laker fan is
for it to go seven games and just for the
MAVs to win, and that would be in the garden, right,

(15:39):
that would.

Speaker 6 (15:40):
Not that would be it MAVs at home and that
one game seven would be in the garden. Seven we're
going into the cathedral. To quote what the Celtics coach's
favorite movie, Welledral tame Way Park is the cathedral.

Speaker 2 (16:04):
That's those of us who live in Boston.

Speaker 1 (16:07):
That's all we know.

Speaker 2 (16:08):
It is, as is the cathedral.

Speaker 1 (16:10):
Nobody.

Speaker 2 (16:12):
Gway Park is the also the cathedral, I should say that.
And Foxboro Stadium up there is the Vatican. That's the Vatican,
its own municipality where it has its own police force,
its own rules, just like the Vatican does. That's perfect,

(16:33):
that is perfect. They wear ridiculous hats, silly hats, helmet.

Speaker 6 (16:41):
I'm gonna go MAVs and five, moving along, all right? Yeah,
now it's uh, yeah, yeah, it's I don't know, brain
says Celtics and six, But like they're old NBA, a
heart that has like witnessed lots of series where the

(17:04):
team with the best player wins. Feels like it might
be MAVs and seven, But I do think it's probably
gonna be Celtics.

Speaker 2 (17:11):
In uh, Celtics and six.

Speaker 1 (17:16):
Okay, I'm gonna change mine. Actually, what's what's years is
going to be my most I agree Celtics and six.
Just whatever is the prevailing sentiment is out there.

Speaker 2 (17:27):
That seems to be the prevailing sentiment in the discord.
Now we got Garaventag, MAVs and seven.

Speaker 1 (17:38):
Uh, and then Charlie Xavier like this, So I don't care.
It's delusional. Boston toxicity has me manifesting total domination. I
get it. I get it. Look, I think I'm just
jealous that I don't get to be in the toxic
driver's seat. Yeah this year, that's my favorite part about
being a Laker fan. And they get to now.

Speaker 6 (17:58):
But once the Celtics win and we have to like
listen to people talk about how Jason Tatum's like one
of the best players in the league and the implication
of all time, the implication that you know, the Sixers
could have had them had him No, no.

Speaker 1 (18:19):
No, we could.

Speaker 2 (18:22):
Might have No that would have never had it possible
that we couldn't. Yeah, Blake, what about you? What's your
Where do your predictions land?

Speaker 1 (18:30):
Here? Give me one from your heart and one from
your head.

Speaker 5 (18:34):
One from my heart Celtics in five okay because my
heart's failing, and then from my head Celtics in four oh.

Speaker 2 (18:46):
No, because my head.

Speaker 1 (18:51):
I like how we're pretty resigned to Yeah, I mean,
like again, I would love to see a match up.
I think the Maps definitely have a shot if they can,
you know, just on them on the offensive glass like
they did with the timber. Like you know, there's the
pieces are there, but it's whether or not it all
comes together. And I think that's the hard part to
see because again, I just think that Celtics have like

(19:11):
mechanical efficiency at this point, which is hard to overcome.

Speaker 2 (19:16):
But right, yeah, guys, it doesn't feel right. I think
I think I might switch it to like MAVs and seven. Yeah.

Speaker 6 (19:26):
The athleticism inside for the MAVs is uh turning me
around here. They just they look hard to beat right now,
and Boston feels I don't know, even though they're a
super team, they get too many of their points from
the three point line.

Speaker 2 (19:43):
The playoffs is all about getting points in yeah.

Speaker 1 (19:48):
I believe. And if it turns the hero ball, you
like the Mavericks better.

Speaker 2 (19:53):
Yeah, exactly, so I like their ability to get a bucket.
I'm back, baby.

Speaker 1 (20:01):
Now.

Speaker 2 (20:01):
This is the weirdest time of the sports show I've
ever had. It's very old, very weird. Word you're working
for it looking, Yeah, you're hearing three grown men cope
on my sad It is coping. This is hoping.

Speaker 1 (20:17):
This is Miles and Jack have terrible coping skills. There's
a coping scandal. Yeah, they're hopped up on that cope.
They're hopped up on cope. Yeah, all right.

Speaker 6 (20:33):
Luca has averaged twenty eight point eight points nine point
six boards, eight point eight assists. If he maintains those numbers,
he'd be just the third player to average at least
twenty eight, eight and nine in the last fifteen playoff games,
joining Lebron and Nicola Jokic. You guys see the video
of Yo Kic whitewater rafting with his friends.

Speaker 1 (20:54):
No, is he back home already rafting?

Speaker 2 (20:56):
I couldn't tell if he was back home or not.

Speaker 6 (20:58):
But everybody in the raft, like, you couldn't tell which
one was Jokic that like, everybody looked identical.

Speaker 2 (21:04):
It was weird. It's like, oh, he hangs out with
just a bunch of people who look like him and
are the same size as him.

Speaker 5 (21:10):
Somehow the water was blue until him and his friends
got in it and then became whitewater. Thank you so much,
Go ahead, all right, and back to you, Blake, back
to me and back to me. Celtics and four, yeah,
Mads and six.

Speaker 1 (21:21):
And then.

Speaker 6 (21:23):
I think we've predicted every possible outcome at this point,
so I better get credit you guys if I picked
this one.

Speaker 1 (21:34):
Wait, which what did you pick?

Speaker 2 (21:36):
I forget now too. I think MAVs and seven is
what I picked.

Speaker 1 (21:40):
That's what I'm saying too.

Speaker 2 (21:41):
Yeah, yeah, or or Celtics before that's that's.

Speaker 1 (21:46):
Kind of where I'm stuck between. It's Celtics are four Mas.

Speaker 2 (21:50):
Yeah, it's close. It's close. It's hard to figure which
to pick.

Speaker 1 (21:53):
It's close.

Speaker 2 (21:54):
Yeah, yeah, No, he was apparently the Tara Valley or
something is where he went.

Speaker 6 (22:02):
All right, Uh, did you guys see the video of
ant Man. There's a commercial of ant Man shooting hoops
being like hearing the voice, hearing people.

Speaker 1 (22:12):
Doubt people's like mean tweets kind of thing.

Speaker 6 (22:14):
Yeah, yeah, mean tweets of him shooting hoops and then
getting getting mean tweets at him while shooting hoops. It
was just like a a surprisingly quick turnaround from like
bad performance in the conference finals and then immediately like
a statement issued in commercial form, right, and maybe me

(22:37):
saying it was a bad performance in the conference finals
will be in the next version of this commercial.

Speaker 1 (22:42):
Yeah yeah, But his friend reads off the receipt. All right,
some guy said he's let's record another one.

Speaker 5 (22:52):
I think that the Minnesota Timberwolves should trade ant and
build around Cat and go bear.

Speaker 2 (22:57):
We're taking carbagger animals and Ant this NBA.

Speaker 1 (23:04):
Oh my god.

Speaker 2 (23:05):
Yeah, that's a big man's league.

Speaker 1 (23:09):
Yeah, I mean that there was a like I think
that they got a little contentious when Cameron was one
of the receipts that was read and then Cameron replied
in a freestyle back to him, it's everything has become
so beef oriented recently, you know what I mean. Like,
I'm like, Cam, you didn't have to record a whole
freestyle like bigging up all these but I get it.

Speaker 2 (23:26):
You make a day of it, the whole afternoon, bringing
a crew union crew.

Speaker 1 (23:32):
Yeah.

Speaker 2 (23:33):
I don't know is that show union but anyway, but
it is what it is. But yeah, it's a I think.

Speaker 1 (23:41):
It is what it is.

Speaker 3 (23:43):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (23:44):
Again, I think it's just this is we're kind of
in that taking shots era for sure, Like we're seeing
it even more and more like just even outside of music,
inside of music, like Billie Eilish, but like everybody's kind
of everyone's in there beef era right now.

Speaker 2 (23:57):
So I got into a yeah with Taylor Swift, everything.

Speaker 1 (24:03):
Is about taking shots at each other now, Yeah, like, oh,
Taylor want to put this album out to so to
stifle Billy's album sales and Billy Twigger album.

Speaker 2 (24:09):
It's like all it's just all this back and forth,
which is great.

In the sense that they will definitely play for they
will Celtics and we will go for this one's going for.

Speaker 1 (25:17):
Yeah. Is it just that we don't want to be
unequivocal because I mean, look, if we really said it
out loud what we believed, then we have the shot at.

I just don't want to be honest with the people.

Speaker 6 (26:55):
How you guys are seventeen seventeen? Yeah, yeah, that must

Speaker 6 (27:17):
It looks a little bit better, right, Blake. I would
say when we first came back, I looked grotesque, but
I would I would say it made me sick to
my stomach.

Speaker 2 (27:30):
But his head looks right.

Speaker 1 (27:32):
I need another break, just to deal with these comments. Man.

Speaker 5 (27:34):
Let's sorry, Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry sorry.

Speaker 1 (27:37):
Maps in five bas I think guys, just don't try
to take shots at my head, you know.

Speaker 6 (27:41):
Okay, just like one of the sides keeps bulging out.
I don't know if with everything I just.

Speaker 2 (27:47):
Started sleeping and stuff. Yeah, your head and a cast
for two for two years for.

Speaker 5 (27:56):
Your favorite pillow company, got in some trouble over the
past couple of years, and you haven't.

Speaker 2 (28:00):
Yeah, okay, exactly.

Speaker 1 (28:02):
I think I'm ready to come back.

Speaker 2 (28:03):
I think your head looks very Yeah.

Speaker 6 (28:05):
He keeps asking, how am I supposed to know whose
pillow it is? If the same of my pillow is
not my pillow it.

Speaker 1 (28:12):
Is the it's like what it's like Odysseus esque riddles
like the Cyclops.

Speaker 5 (28:22):
You're just writing your name, Miles on all the pillows
in your house. They're mine, They're mine? Wait, no, are
they mine?

Speaker 2 (28:29):
Or Miles to say, and we're back. We're back. My
head's right. So Celtics and six.

Speaker 6 (28:37):
As you Meltics have heard that the thing that Miles
really dealing with is the possibility of an eighteenth title
that would put the Celtics ahead of the Lakers.

Speaker 1 (28:46):
Is that not just the just that is the subjects
that is, that's that is the that's the sort of
ammocles that hangs above me. Yeah, you know what I mean.

Speaker 6 (28:55):
I don't think it's the only thing that our listeners
are thinking about at all times, all hours of their wet.

Speaker 2 (29:02):
Yeah, I know put all wait, y'all not thinking about
the redemption?

Speaker 1 (29:07):
How beautiful that was? Oh man?

Speaker 6 (29:10):
But as super producer Jabari Davis said, one since eighty six, so.

Speaker 2 (29:18):
Oh talking about the Celtics, Yeah, titles it is one.
Yeah it was u KG, Paul Pierce.

Speaker 1 (29:27):
Yeah, yeah, any I can do anything, Anything is possible, Anything,
It's possible.

Speaker 6 (29:34):
A better catchphrase than the thing he was supposed to say,
impossible is nothing was the Adidas catchphrase. Yes, and he
was supposed to say impossible is nothing after he won
the title, and instead he said anything is possible and
he actually improved there. They should have just changed their catchphrase,
but instead they were like, ah, by the way, do

(29:57):
you see the story about him?

Speaker 2 (29:59):
U plan? Yeah, you sent it to me?

Speaker 1 (30:01):
Oh yeah about him? What uh? Context?

Speaker 2 (30:06):
Whatsoever? Good God? What can show the story that miles
out next to me about the one about him? Blake
Celtics and four.

Speaker 6 (30:17):
KG Yeah, KG just basically said that the whole the
Charlie Murphy true Hollywood tailed out like hooping with Prince
is real and in fact k who KG hooped with
them and was like he's really good.

Speaker 1 (30:34):
He said he'll beat any nor he'll beat any civilian. Yeah,
he said, his handle is nasty.

Speaker 6 (30:43):
And then there's like these images cut in of Prince
hooping that I had never seen before.

Speaker 2 (30:47):
He's like at the rim, like incredible, Hey, the purple one.

Speaker 1 (30:52):
You know what I mean, what it is? It is
what it is. And I'm so tired, and now that
we have our heads back on correct, I think it
is time to just dive head first, headlong into the
fourth QUARTERPIFI roundom question. This is the Q second podcasting history,
Blake Wexler. We asked you a question. You just respond

(31:13):
reply quickly, don't think too long, or else we'll be
to you because we have to keep it m O
v I n G moving maps and five.

Speaker 6 (31:22):
I hear you.

Speaker 1 (31:24):
It.

Speaker 6 (31:24):
Usually Miles doesn't actually say the word after he spells it,
but with you, he felt the need to. I wouldn't
take that any certain sort of way.

Speaker 2 (31:32):
I just want to make sure he knows how to
spell yeah, to make sure I understood what you were saying.

Speaker 1 (31:44):
All right, here we go, Blake, Are you ready?

Speaker 2 (31:47):
Yes, let's keep it moving. Celtics in four Celtics and
four let's keep.

Speaker 1 (31:57):
Start the clock the c O m O O V
I n c K. You spoke for zingists right now.
I don't know how to spell Wexler. Who goes first?
Jack Zinger?

Speaker 2 (32:14):
Who goes first? Be straight with us? Yeah, be honest first,
Blake goes first. I'll go first. Yeah, Blake, you cover,
you go first?

Speaker 5 (32:22):
Okay, Big Country Bryant Reeves, your Shelvin Mack will go
around the horn. Who would you rather have in the
fourth quarter game on the line?

Speaker 1 (32:33):
Uh?

Speaker 2 (32:33):
Right now?

Speaker 3 (32:35):
Uh?

Speaker 1 (32:36):
Yeah, right now? Like we take him?

Speaker 6 (32:42):
Would he was like a top five pick. I think
they were just like, well, he was really famous and
well known six overall in the nineteen ninety five NBA draft. Uh,
Oklahoma State? Is that where he went?

Speaker 2 (32:56):
I believe bliek so or no ar there's some keep
it moving answer my question? Keep it moving?

Speaker 1 (33:02):
Okay, my bad. Brian Reeves.

Speaker 2 (33:06):
Went to Butler re.

Speaker 1 (33:09):
Okay.

Speaker 2 (33:10):
Jabari usually doesn't have to come on and tell us
to keep it moving, but he just did there.

Speaker 1 (33:14):
Or he said, wait, guys, you have the forum completely wrong.
You're supposed to ask the guest question. Yeah, exactly, Blake.

Speaker 6 (33:22):
You can go back in time to Oh no, it's
a Blake all right, Yeah, go back, Blake.

Speaker 2 (33:28):
You can go back in time.

Speaker 6 (33:29):
To personally witness ani finals match up from history. However,
many games the series went. You get courtside tickets to
each game, which you choose them, Blake, which you choosen?

Speaker 5 (33:42):
Yeah, I would go back to It was the Lakers that, sorry, Miles,
that and Jabari and then probably all of our listeners
that the Detroit Pistons beat right that.

Speaker 2 (33:56):
The biggest.

Speaker 5 (33:58):
I would want to watch that, and I'm not I'm
not gonna and I'm a little a little sneaky pete
here I do.

Speaker 2 (34:03):
I would.

Speaker 5 (34:03):
I would legitimately want to watch that because I think
those Pistons teams are some of the most interesting teams
and also scored forty points per game.

Speaker 2 (34:11):
And I would want to see it. I remember that
Game three, we scored sixty eight points and he was
on that team. Miles, do you have any scorers on
that team? Anyone who can put the ball in the basket.
It was me with my lego arms, and I told Bill, Hey, bro,
don't put me in man.

Speaker 1 (34:30):
I'm nineteen, I'm not ready for this, and I'm also
never played.

Speaker 6 (34:33):
That's a got of basketball the Blake likes. He's a
He's at his favorite basketball coach all time. Eight off Rup.
It's nineteen fifties University of Kentucky.

Speaker 2 (34:43):
Yeah, it's a.

Speaker 5 (34:44):
Shame what Calipari did to that whole program, the way
he ruined it with his scoring. But yeah, I think
it was a problematic guy. Yeah, yeah, Blake, Yes.

Speaker 2 (34:56):
Can I just ask you again? What's your prediction for
the finals?

Speaker 5 (34:58):
I'm going to go And I said this once and
I've said it in seventeen different times, I'm going Celtics
and six.

Speaker 1 (35:06):
Now next question, Finals MVP.

Speaker 2 (35:12):
I'm going to go. I mean I'm going to go.
Jayalen Brown, Wow, that's where I'm going to go with.

Speaker 5 (35:21):
You could have said Lebron. Dude could have said Lebron,
but you could have should have. I'm not going to
say that because he's not going to win, because it's
going to be the MAVs in five?

Speaker 1 (35:33):
Jayleen Brown?

Speaker 2 (35:34):
Is that with Jayalen Brown?

Speaker 1 (35:36):
I love that.

Speaker 2 (35:37):
I love that worst prediction.

Speaker 1 (35:38):
I love that. I love that if somehow that was
a bet you could take. What would the odds be
that that part one in a million? Just like you
guys and our friendship, they would say an impossibility. Sir,
Please leave right now.

Speaker 2 (35:52):
That's right, sir? What are you saying, so you're bleeding.
Why are you? You're bleeding too much to be in
this sports. But every time I up to the OTB window,
my nose starts bleeding. What am I supposed to do
about it? Bleed at home? Ye?

Speaker 3 (36:06):
That?

Speaker 1 (36:07):
Oh my god, that is true, though, Jabbari, don't bring
up the Jerry West is the first NBA Finals MVP
on the losing team.

Speaker 2 (36:16):
Like faces of the NBA for the next five years,
go Anthony Edwards.

Speaker 5 (36:23):
Trey Young is probably the funniest pick pick because it's
like you could justify it.

Speaker 2 (36:29):
But you're wrong.

Speaker 5 (36:30):
No, it'll be Brownie James and Anthony Edwards, Stephen Gobert.

Speaker 1 (36:39):
No, I would.

Speaker 5 (36:42):
Is a little brother, a little brother, Baby Gobert and
you know the baby that ruined the Western Conference final,
thank you? And no, I would say Tyres, Maxie, Anthony Edwards.
You wanted five, correct?

Speaker 1 (36:56):
Yeah?

Speaker 2 (36:57):
I think it's still the five years but yeah, yeah,
but I have go ahead, We'll let you do five.
I don't want to do five at all. I don't
want to do five like in the least.

Speaker 1 (37:09):
I don't most five AE and MAXI mm hmm, okay, okay, yeah,
that's what you're saying.

Speaker 6 (37:16):
And you think who's the holdover? You're gonna say, and
you think it's still going to be Lebron. I think
Lebron's still going to be playing at the age of
forty four.

Speaker 1 (37:25):
Yeah, easily, I think.

Speaker 2 (37:26):
And you'll be putting up like twenty one, nine and eight.

Speaker 6 (37:31):
Then it was conspicuous that you left Joe Mizula out.
Do you you don't think he's gonna.

Speaker 2 (37:37):
Come back and play again?

Speaker 1 (37:38):
Yeah?

Speaker 2 (37:39):
Yeah, coach.

Speaker 1 (37:42):
Next prediction true? Our next question? Sorry, take away there?

Speaker 2 (37:47):
What's your prediction for the NBA Finals? I that's that's interesting.

Speaker 1 (37:51):
You asked that.

Speaker 5 (37:52):
I I don't like to give predictions, Okay, but I'll
do it on this show for the first time.

Speaker 2 (37:57):
I will go celt in five.

Speaker 5 (38:02):
Actually wow, Yeah, I'm gonna go out on a lamb
and say Celtics in five and Mad's in six.

Speaker 1 (38:08):
Okay. Follow up, if I'm watching a seventy six ers
game in Philadelphia, do that?

Speaker 2 (38:12):
Don't do it? Go ahead?

Speaker 1 (38:13):
Next question?

Speaker 2 (38:14):
No, we gotta keep going. And I'm hungry. What do
I eat in the arena? You gotta have a cheese
steak lad and catch yeah mine onions? Bring your own pencils. Yeah,
I would go. So they have these.

Speaker 5 (38:33):
Insanely large slices of pizza that like seems like, oh
oh well, how big by slice of pizza is, and
then you have to still eat it. It's legitimately like
an elephant's ear. I don't know, really, it's yes, it's insane.
It's and it's not even like presented as look at
how funny this.

Speaker 2 (38:51):
Slice of pizza is. It's just presented as this is
how big a slice of pizza should be. Because we
Bargo Center the Flyers play there too, right correct?

Speaker 1 (38:59):
Yeah, yeah, because I'm seeing a picture of a Flyers
fan eating a pizza the size of.

Speaker 2 (39:06):
An elephant ear? Is how big it is? Yeah?

Speaker 1 (39:08):
Sure?

Speaker 2 (39:09):
Or or an airbag that went off, or it looks
like a one dimensional wizard's hat. Wizards that very It's
just this triangle.

Speaker 1 (39:21):
Is the pizza good though?

Speaker 2 (39:22):
Uh? It's it's like it's for ballpark or steadium pizza.
It's it's good. How do you feel about ketchup on
your on my pizza pizza?

Speaker 1 (39:32):
I love it.

Speaker 5 (39:33):
I substitute marinara sauce with ketchup and I find it delightful.

Speaker 2 (39:39):
I put I put ketchup on hot dogs for sure.

Speaker 1 (39:41):
Yeah, yeah, okay, I.

Speaker 2 (39:42):
Love ketchup is bad? Is that a bad thing in
Philly too? I was saying the quality of the pizza.
How do you feel about ketchup as the red sauce
on pizza?

Speaker 1 (39:55):
Oh?

Speaker 2 (39:55):
I'm sorry. You were making a funny joke and I
cut you off with.

Speaker 1 (40:00):
We both missed pure confusion.

Speaker 6 (40:03):
All right, Blake, We've seen teams like Memphis few years back. Okay,
see this year, Orlando this year, take that next step
over the last few years. Can you give us a
team or two you expect to do the same next season?

Speaker 1 (40:16):
Blake?

Speaker 2 (40:22):
Like, I don't know the Sixers forgot? They take a
step forward.

Speaker 1 (40:28):
No.

Speaker 6 (40:31):
Plummet in the standing next year, and from our expectations,
who replaces them near the top of the standard?

Speaker 2 (40:39):
Near the top there? Instead?

Speaker 1 (40:41):
Did I tell you?

Speaker 5 (40:42):
I came up with an idea for the Sixers and
I might need your help with it. So you're familiar
with in college football s mu got quote unquote the
death penalty was what it was called b they weren't
allowed to play football. I think that not death, but
I think like a coma penalty where the Sixers shouldn't
be allowed to play basketball.

Speaker 2 (41:02):
For two years.

Speaker 5 (41:03):
I'm dead secrets and they don't lose the team, I'm
dead spurious. So just pause, press pause, because the thing
it has to stop. We need to stop bleeding. You know,
this is this is a tourniqu hit. This is not surgery.
So stop the bleeding and then take two. So we're
gonna have two expansion teams a right, because I want
expansion teams in the league.

Speaker 2 (41:22):
Seattle needs a team. Seattle really needs a team.

Speaker 5 (41:24):
And I swear to guy, if they give Vegas a
team before Seattle, I'm going to scream at the top
of my lungs outside of the Wells Fargo Center before
I'm picked out of the parking lot.

Speaker 1 (41:33):
In your eyes.

Speaker 2 (41:34):
Yeah, you know where all the Sonics fans hang out,
the parking lot. Yeah. So the Sixers are divided across
two expansion teams. There's two players on the team currently.

Speaker 5 (41:50):
Well, so there's going to be a an expansion draft.
So the first year Sixers are out, we try it
out in one city. So then the like Seattle gets
an expansion draft, okay, and then maybe we only do
one year. Then the next year okay, and these players,
by the way, their contracts are still the same contracts.
So if you know, Max has four years left on

(42:11):
his deal. At the end of the two years, he's
still yeah, still has two years, but they get an
option to come back. They won't want to, but they
get an option to come back to Philadelphia if they want.
And then we bring in another team I think to
even out because we need to have an even number
of teams. So then we bring in another expansion team
for the second year and they get the Sixers players,

(42:32):
and then we do a fantasy draft at the expansion
draft the third year.

Speaker 2 (42:35):
All right, that was very easy, and the NBA is
listening very It was very easy.

Speaker 1 (42:40):
Yeah, and that much.

Speaker 6 (42:41):
After the two years, the players have the option to
come back, but none of them will. And then a
team of is yeah.

Speaker 5 (42:50):
Yeah, the team the team of clowns, Yeah, for sure.
And the clowns they also have to be drafted, so
it's not like the Sixers get first choice of clown Yeah.

Speaker 2 (42:59):
They have yeah, the way Wire just like everyone else.

Speaker 1 (43:02):
And finally, Blake Wexler, this is the most important question
that we ask in this segment. Give me your finals
prediction for the two twenty four finals. Okay, the finals prediction,
m hm.

Speaker 2 (43:13):
This is tough. This yeah, this is one. Didn't mean
to ask you this at right at the end of
the whole.

Speaker 1 (43:18):
Episode, but got no no no.

Speaker 2 (43:20):
I thought we're gonna get through the episode without having
to do this.

Speaker 5 (43:23):
I would go, uh mav Celtics in mat Maverick, I
would go Mavericks.
