Speaker 3 (00:49):
Good morning.

Speaker 2 (00:50):
If you're watching on Peacock, thank you for downloading the
app and Fox Sports Radio iHeartRadio as well. We will
get to a poll question today. Phone calls are always welcome.
Bryson de Shambeau outlast Rory McElroy to win his second
US Open we'll dive into that both sides of the equation,
with Bryce and winning and Rory losing the MAVs with

a blowout of the Celtics, the Oilers blow out the Panthers. Look,
I said that the Panthers were going to win this
when the playoffs started, and I have the Celtics over
the MAVs, but I just want to have more basketball
and more hockey. I'm glad that they were able to
avoid the sweep, but these were humiliating losses for these
two teams who are probably going to win their titles

in their respective leagues. Dallas at one point led by
forty eight points, the largest lead in an NBA Finals
game since nineteen ninety seven, and then you have the Oilers.
If it was an eight to one final here, and
I always look at it and go, let's make this
a football related score. Let's make it touchdowns. So eight

to one, eight times seven fifty six, So that's fifty
six to seven in my eyes that the Oilers beat
the Panthers. The seven goal margin matched the largest by
any team facing elimination in the Stanley Cup Final. But
it was over early in both of these games, and
it's almost as if you had the team say all right,

you got your win, We're gonna go home and we're
gonna win this. In all of the years decades that
I've covered these big events, whether it's a World Series,
in NBA finals, even Stanley Cup final, whatever is the
most inconvenient for the media always happens. I remember the
Chicago Bulls were going to put away the Seattle SuperSonics

and then we're like, yep, they're gonna win at home,
and then all of a sudden, Seattle wins and we
go back to Seattle and then the Bulls end up
winning Utah.

Speaker 3 (02:50):
Bulls win in Utah.

Speaker 2 (02:51):
Whatever is the most inconvenient always felt like that was
what was going to happen, all right, seton pole.

Speaker 4 (02:57):
Question for today is what, well we might as well
start there. Who is more back in it? Mavericks? Are
the Oilers?

Speaker 2 (03:08):
I'd rather answer that after tonight, you know, because I
know because then we know that they're back in it. Yeah,
I would say the MAVs are not back in it,
and I would say the Oilers aren't back in it.

Speaker 3 (03:24):
But whose would be more back in it? An back
in it?

Speaker 4 (03:31):
Here's what I think about when you're watching Celtics Mavericks.
The only difference between that game is, and this is
gonna sound really basic, but it's one hundred percent. The
truth is the Celtics just weren't hitting their shots. They
were getting looks that in the first three games, those
were falling every single all the sudden, everything Derek White
put up seemed to go and everything, uh Jaylen Brown
put up was going in. Everything Christops prezingis with that

crappy ass shot that was going in. That's the worst
shot I've ever seen. All of those are going in.
It's or at least for that one game, You're like, dang,
how the hell are they doing? This game four, they
just didn't go in. At what point do you realize
it's not your night? And then you adjust accordingly that
the Celtics go, yeah, it's not gonna be to night

because you still have to try. But yeah, you know,
you're not like I'm diving for loose balls fifty to
fifty balls that I'm trying to you know, whatever, I'm reckless,
whatever it takes. You're kind of like, at some point
when you're subbing those guys in, do you know everybody's
name or do you have to look at the clipboard

and be like, who are we putting in right now?
Let's pull everybody. Charles Hey twelve came here. Yeah, I'll
turn around. Oh, okay, you're in. God have fun, Richard
go in there.

Speaker 2 (04:46):
When you pull your goalie who has been pretty good,
that's when you go, oh, it's over. And it's like
Edmonton hadn't done much and all of a sudden they
do too much. That's where you say, as a fan,
you're like, save some of that for the next game. Hey,
Dallas saved some of that for the next game. Well,

it doesn't work that way. Those were two humiliating losses
for both of these teams. But this is where you
have to have that ability to go, hey, whatever just happened,
it's over and now we move forward. Here, you can't
go god, we were embarrassed, we were humiliated. It's not
you can't do that, especially with a goalie like you know,

Sergei Bobrovski can't go go Lee, I think they figured
me out, or Jalen Brown, Jason Tatum going golly, they
shut us down.

Speaker 3 (05:39):
Hey, Luca's having fun.

Speaker 5 (05:41):

Speaker 2 (05:42):
By the way, DraftKings has the over unders here. Luca's
thirty two and a half, Kyrie's twenty three and a half,
Tatum and Brown. I got Brown at twenty four and
a half, Jason Tatum at twenty seven and a half.
But the MAVs are getting six and a half. What
other poll questions do you have their Seaton? Well, we
could switch things over to golf if you like let me, Well,

give me the question and then we can talk about that.
I'm going to have a little bit more time to
talk about it because there's the Bryce and Deshambo side
of this, and then there's the Rory McElroy side of this,
and it's.

Speaker 3 (06:17):
Almost like there were one winner. There were a few losers.
Now I'm going to say there were two winners.

Speaker 2 (06:24):
I think the golf course was a winner because I
was surprised if anybody was going to be under par
you had a chance to win that tournament, and I
was and I told you I played it once and
it was a miserable day. It's a beautiful course, but
it is it's exceptionally challenging. And this is before they
trick up the greens and everything else that goes with it,

Like you have a spot that you have to hit
a golf ball to and then you hope that it
stays in that spot. And how many times did you
see it just roll off? You can hit a great
shot there, you can go up through the green. You go,
you gotta be kidding me. I'm in the bunker. It's
you have to have patience, and it's really hard to
have patience. You want things. Even when you have a bogie,

you have to go, all right, that's a good bogey.
You don't have that mindset. Plus, they just played the
PGA Championship in Louisville. You're getting twenty one under par
and now you have this like it's just it's a
thrill ride. You just hold on for dear life. Have
you ever had a ride at an amusement park where
you go, this isn't going to be fun, but you

have to do it. You know, there's one that dropped
like one hundred feet and you're like, that's what this is.
It's not fun, it's survival of the fittest. And that's
what you saw. And what I love about golf, it's
right there in front of you. You can't hide. It's
like a boxer. I can't do anything other than right there.

It's right there.

Speaker 3 (07:51):
In the ring.

Speaker 2 (07:52):
There's no time outs here for a golfer, and you
had that on display this weekend. But any other pole
questions there that aren't golf related, then we'll dive into
that coming up here in a little bit.

Speaker 4 (08:04):
Well, yeah, you know, you kind of hit on what
I was going to say. This US Open will be
remembered for Bryson winning or Rory losing, because today it's
certainly even.

Speaker 3 (08:15):

Speaker 2 (08:16):
It should be Bryson to Shambeau, who has been great
this year. I think it's going to be maybe a
fifty to fifty depending on who you like. But one
has to happen for the other to happen. It was
Bryson to Shamba, then he lost the lead, and then
it was Rory and then he lost the lead, and
then it was Bryson who got it back. I mean,

it was the only thing I wish is they would
have been paired together. That to me, that that's the ultimate.
You want two guys head to head, big figures, big personalities.
By the way, where did this personality from Bryson to
Shambo come from? He is chatting it up, tapping it up,
signing autographs during the round at the end of the round.

I mean he was playful. Now I know he won,
but I just don't remember him being this ingratiating. Maybe
he's learned that on the live tour where you get
to just have fun. But Rory watching from the scorers tent,
that was tough. That was tough to watch. Yeah, yeah,
that was That was pretty brutal there, all right, eight

seven to seven three DP Show email address dpat Danpatrick
dot com, Twitter handle at DP show. We'll get to
your phone calls. What you saw that you liked you
didn't like from over the weekend. Reggie will join us
coming up a little bit later on. There are some
prop bets that are just wild, just wild. How about
the Boston Red Sox number of hits and versus Jalen

Brown's rebounds tonight?

Speaker 3 (09:48):
How about that one?

Speaker 2 (09:50):

Speaker 3 (09:50):
Who thinks these things up?

Speaker 2 (09:52):
I don't know who the Red Sox are playing, but
you know they're favored to have more hits than Jalen
Brown has rebounds tonight. How about Luka Doncic rebounds versus
the Texas Rangers hits. Luca is the big favorite there.
It's wild, these prop bets. Yeah, Paulie, I'm looking at

the box square. You said, when was the moment where
the Celtics decided this is not our night. They were
down thirteen at the end of the first quarter, so
that's in striking. Yes, lets you have a bad first quarter, Yeah, manageable.

Speaker 6 (10:24):
They were down twenty seven points midway through the second quarter,
and they started putting in players whose.

Speaker 3 (10:29):
Names you don't know, we don't know, none of us know.

Speaker 6 (10:31):
And that's when they it's not an announcement by the coach,
but it's maybe like it's an announcement team this may
not be our night. And we could accept that.

Speaker 2 (10:39):
And then it got to forty eight and I go, hey,
I know that there have been crazy comingbacks in basketball
because of the three pointer. You're not coming back from
forty eight down like it's amazing. I don't know if
I praised the Mavericks for getting up forty eight or
the Celtics allowing.

Speaker 3 (10:57):
The MAVs to get up by forty eight.

Speaker 2 (10:58):
That's really really hard to do. And Luca wasn't dominating,
didn't hit three pointers. It was Ozho for eight from
three point range, yes see.

Speaker 4 (11:08):
But there was still no matter how many points the
Mavericks went up, there was I was still like, man,
how are they gonna blow this?

Speaker 3 (11:14):
Well, normally this fourth quarter.

Speaker 4 (11:16):
Is gonna be crazy, the second half is gonna be nuts.

Speaker 2 (11:18):
How are they gonna do We usually do that with
the Celtics with him like, Okay, let's see how they're
gonna blow this one.

Speaker 3 (11:24):
Yes, Marvin.

Speaker 5 (11:25):
When I saw Markith Moors enter the game for the Mavericks,
I was like, oh, it's definitely a wrap for this game.

Speaker 3 (11:30):
And street close out in the second quarter.

Speaker 2 (11:32):
Yeah, Derk Novitsky he walked on to the court and
they said, all right, you can play for a little
while Steve Nash was cord signed. How awkward has that
has to be for Steve Nash to sit there and
watch Kyrie Irving playing in an NBA Finals after what
happened in Brooklyn when Steve was Kyrie's coach. Steve Nash

probably still getting paid though by Brooklyn, So maybe it's
a little bit easier, a little bit more tolerable. So
we'll get to your phone calls. But the Oilers avoiding
a sweep, Mavericks avoiding a sweep, And all I want
is because once this is over, then we have just baseball,
and then we start with training camp and then we

get back to normal coming up the late August early September.
You got Olympics coming up though a few weeks in Paris. Yeah,
eton got the NBA Draft coming up soon. That's going
to be a lot of fun. Glad teams have everything
in order ready to go. Yeah, like preparing for that.
Will the Lakers have a coach?

Speaker 3 (12:32):
Oh? Will they have a coach by Friday? Is it Thursday?

Speaker 7 (12:37):

Speaker 5 (12:38):
It's two days.

Speaker 3 (12:39):
I think it's either Wednesday or Thursday or Thursday Friday.

Speaker 5 (12:41):
I'm going to double check, but it is two nights.

Speaker 4 (12:43):
I think it's Wednesday Thursday, Okay. Yeah, And I of
course have the bet.

Speaker 2 (12:47):
I say that Brownie James will go in the first round,
and if he doesn't, then the dan.

Speaker 3 (12:51):
Nets get to hit me with four pis.

Speaker 2 (12:54):
I keep reading things where they're like, hey, he worked
out for the Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, and then.

Speaker 3 (13:01):
I forget maybe it was Rick Carlyle.

Speaker 2 (13:03):
Somebody said, oh, you know, he's going to go a
lot higher than you think, And then I'm reading to say,
is he going to go in the first round? It's like, uh, nope,
but he's going to go a lot higher than fifty fourth. Yes, Mark,
what kind of pie do you want? Or do you
want four different flavors? I you know, as long as
it's something that doesn't like burn my retinas or anything,
you know, or disrupt my TV complexion, then I'm fine

with that one.

Speaker 3 (13:28):
But thank you for asking.

Speaker 6 (13:30):
Yes, Paul, you mentioned a month ago that the NBA
was going to show the first round on one night,
and the second round of the NBA Draft had its own, standalone,
separate night. I thought you were joking when you said
that a month ago. They may be pushing it a
little too fast because you're an absolute maniac if you
watch a second.

Speaker 7 (13:44):
Round of the raft.

Speaker 5 (13:45):
That's true. That's true, No.

Speaker 2 (13:46):
Offense, because this isn't the NFL, you know, and they're
trying to showcase it like we could do two nights
you can.

Speaker 3 (13:54):
That doesn't mean you should, like.

Speaker 6 (13:56):
The people in the crowd at the second night of
the NBA Draft win an award. They should get like
lifetime seats or something that's a committed group.

Speaker 2 (14:04):
Yeah, because you're gonna have a lot of players that
you've never There's a lot of players in the first
round that you have never heard of, let alone second round.
But yeah, I keep I don't know it's next Wednesday.
It'll be June twenty sixth and twenty seventh. The Lakers
will have a coach by then. I'm guessing that they

could have a coach by tomorrow. If Boston wins tonight,
the Lakers should have their coach by tomorrow tomorrow as
early is tomorrow, because then JJ Reddick is done, and
now that they can officially hire him, they will have
a coach before the NBA Draft. Now you need to
have a coach, they will. You need to have a

coach before free agency starts. Like that's the most important
part the draft. All right, you got the fifty fourth,
You got what the seventeenth pick in the first round?

Speaker 3 (14:56):
Is that right? Or nineteenth or seventeenth? Is that right, Marvin?

Speaker 2 (15:00):
Seventeenth and fifty fourth, fifty fifth, fifty fifth?

Speaker 3 (15:04):
Wo Okay, Well, I can't back out of it.

Speaker 2 (15:09):
That Brownie is hopefully he really impressed somebody or somebody is,
you know, hiding their affection for him. But I do
think that they'll have their coach. I don't I haven't
heard anything other than JJ Reddick, which from the beginning
we thought, and then there was that fling that they
had with Dan Hurley.

Speaker 3 (15:28):
It's weird.

Speaker 2 (15:28):
It's like, man, those two are in love and then
all of a sudden, it's a oh wait, they're having
a fling. Oh they're going to get back together. It
feels like JJ and the Lakers by as early as tomorrow.
All right, we'll take a break. We'll talk a little
bit more about Bryson to Shambeau, outlasting Rory. Bryson met
with the media, he met with everybody. Rory didn't meet

with anybody, didn't stay around, and we'll talk about that
exit strategy as well. Take a break, just getting started.
Your phone calls are welcome. Best and worst of the
weekend Back after.

Speaker 2 (16:41):
It's the final hour on this Monday. Hope you had
a great weekend. Gangs all here ready to go. Spend
some time talking about the US Open. More of Bryson
Deshambeau winning or Rory McElroy losing it. It's a combination
of both. Reggie Miller will join us coming up. Game
five coming up tonight, and the Mavericks are getting six
and a half in the potential closeout game with the

Boston Celtics. Also, we spoke a little bit about Caitlyn
Clark and Angel Reese as they have another moment there
where Caitlin Clark going to the hoop, got her shot blocked,
got knocked down Angel Reese delivering the shot to her head.
They upgraded that to a flagrant one. I think it's
a hard basketball foul, and I think you have to

factor in not raising it up to a flagrant one.
I think you got a factor in that Angel Reaes
doesn't like Caitlyn Clark, so was there a little bit
more added to that play? But watch the entire game,
not just that moment there, because that's what's fueling people today,
certainly on social media. It's fun, it's fun to have

a rivalry there. It's tough. It's tough basketball. I just
want to make sure the WNBA doesn't allow it to
go to the point where somebody on Caitlin Clark's team
stands up to Angel rees and then you have something
that's not pretty, but it is hard basketball. They play
physical basketball. This is why you have people who seem

to have an opinion and outrage. They haven't watched the WNBA.
They can't believe that there would be this kind of physicality.
They have been playing this way for a long time.
But Angel Reese doesn't like Caitlin Clark and she's not
trying to hide that. And you know, the reference point
I had last hour was she's Dylan Brooks. She wants

to be Draymond Green because people only know her now
because of Caitlin Clark. But if I'm the WNBA, is
it good for business? It is until it's not, and
that's what you got to be careful about. But people
have an opinion on it, whether they watch the game
or not. The best American athletes look to punch their

tickets to the Paris Olympics. The US Olympic team triers
trials trying to make Team USA Sunday at eight Eastern
on NBC and Peacock SA. Good morning, if you're watching
on Peacock, thank you for downloading the app. We'll get
to more phone calls here. Best and worst of the weekend.
I'm looking at Rory McElroy. He's aged thirty five now,

hasn't won a major in a decade. He has a
runner up finish at a major in each of the
last three years. He keeps putting himself in the position,
which is what you want. He's not no longer relevant.
He is, but he's relevant maybe for what you don't

want to be relevant for. You can't close out and
you have a two stroke lead. All you have to
do is par out and you're gonna win the US Open.

Speaker 3 (19:43):
That's it.

Speaker 2 (19:43):
He'd win by two shots and then all of a sudden,
you bogie three of the last five holes, three of
the last four holes, and Bryson de Shambeau with this
putt wins the US Open.

Speaker 5 (19:57):
Listen to share by.

Speaker 4 (20:00):
The putter behind the ball takes one last look at
the whole man, strokes the putt up the hill.

Speaker 9 (20:05):
Handle the medal, takes his head off streams at the gallery,
jumping around the green a celebration.

Speaker 1 (20:13):
Now a bi hunts from drug bun line two times.

Speaker 3 (20:17):
At US Open champion Bryson de.

Speaker 2 (20:19):
Shambo courtesy a serious XMPGA tour radio. Bryson talked to
everybody he was engaging throughout the four rounds and Pinehurst,
Rory had to watch from the scorer's tent. Bryson makes
the putt, Rory gets in his car, drives himself to
an airport, jumps in his private plane and heads home.

Speaker 3 (20:42):
Should have stayed, should have met.

Speaker 2 (20:43):
With the media, even if you do just a one
off interview with NBC, take care of your broadcast partners.
You got paid over two million dollars for that runner
up finish at the you know, answer a question or two.
People felt bad for him, but he should stay there
and answer a couple of questions. Bryson to Shamba, it's

like a coming out party. You're like, who is this
guy and where's he been? But give him credit because
not as bulky as he used to be, looks normal
now and still hits it a long way, So we
always talk about how far somebody hits it and what
did it come down to? Three and a half foot putt?

That's it. You can hit three p fifty, but can
you do something from three and a half feet that's it.
We can't hit it three forty. We can make three
and a half foot putts. Drive for show, putt for dough.
Never have been more evident than what it was on

Sunday that Bryson to Shamba winning his second US Open.
All right, let's see, we'll talk to Reggie. If Dallas
wins tonight, now all of a sudden, we have something
here after being up by as many as forty eight
in the previous game. If Dallas is able to come
out now, they're not going to play the way they

did in the last game. But if Boston's not hitting
their shots, because that factored into this big lead, Boston
just didn't make their shots. They've been making their shots.
But we'll talk to reg about that. That it's Dallas
getting six and a half. Barry and Santa fe Hi Barry,
what's on your mind?

Speaker 7 (22:26):
Good morning, Chollas, Good morning chat Row, great weekend, No worst,
the best is pale. The Grimace Nick Ribs for everybody
are still stinky. New York Mets are five and zero.
It's the big purple blob throughout the first pitch at

the city field last week and they sweep the Padres.

Speaker 3 (22:52):
Let's go Mets, all right?

Speaker 2 (22:54):
Thank you, Barry, Barry holding out hope for his Mets.

Speaker 3 (23:00):
Tom and Charlotte. I Tom, what's on your mind today?

Speaker 7 (23:04):

Speaker 5 (23:05):

Speaker 10 (23:06):
First of all, great job last week covering Jerry westaff In.
That show alone should have won the should have won
the Sports em before you. You all did great, especially Paulie.
That's to the weekend. Great Father's Day, hopeful of you
had a great one as well. Worst of the weekend.
I like to just kind of hang around, spend time
with the family, play some of your games, and I'm like, oh,
what's on? Oh wow, Codes, this could be great. Let's

throw that on the TV. There are no baseball games
on TV until seven at night that I could find.
When the Yankees game is on seven at night fall,
This day's done by then, and it was pretty sad.
I really think baseball could capitalize on a Yankees game
at one at four o'clock. Cords Codes something for l
A and thenthen in. It just really sad to not

see any games on.

Speaker 2 (23:54):
Yeah, and I don't understand the scheduling with Major League
Baseball where you think you can take advantage of there's
a window here, window of opportunity. I mean, I see
this with a WNBA. They got standalone games with Caitlin
Clark on ABC or CBS, CBS yesterday.

Speaker 3 (24:11):
You have that moment. Can you take advantage of that moment?

Speaker 2 (24:14):
Make it so it's easy for the audience to find it,
you know, some of the streaming services and trying to
find the games and who's on and when they're on
and how do I find them? It just makes it tough,
makes it frustrating. Jason and Fresno. Hey Jason, what's on
your mind?

Speaker 1 (24:32):
Hey Dan?

Speaker 11 (24:32):
How are you doing? Mister pat g I apologize. I
want to be more respectful than shake and irving. So
I appreciate to you a couple of things. The first
thing is Marvin shout out. I was the first person
who has small hands on you at the Super Bowl.

Speaker 12 (24:44):
Walk it out, bro.

Speaker 11 (24:45):
I've also liked announced my retirement ten years, thirteen days.
I am done and.

Speaker 9 (24:49):
Out of there.

Speaker 5 (24:53):
I love it.

Speaker 11 (24:54):
Okay, so I'm a mist figger here in Fresno, administrator
for the high school that Bryson went to. He made
me honestly cry yesterday. He lost his dad a couple
of years ago. It's got to have a special meeting
to him to win it. Yesterday, and then we're talking
about graduations. I would like to also cele about my

kids graduation, but obviously graduated because it ends child support
for me.

Speaker 7 (25:20):
I'm out.

Speaker 5 (25:20):
I love you guys.

Speaker 2 (25:21):
You guys were wrong, all right, thank you, Jason. Yeah,
they embraced and Bryson de Shambo embraced Payne Stewart because
he went to SMU. Payne Stewart went there and he
really looked up to Payne Stewart. And I was there
at that US Open when Payne won at Pinehurst against
Phil Michelson, and you know, Father's Day weekend, and Phil

was waiting for the arrival of his first child in
Payne talking about that that Phil was going to leave
if Amy his wife went into labor.

Speaker 3 (25:54):
Yeah, that was that was good.

Speaker 2 (25:56):
They took advantage of every everything you could with the
US Open and Pinehurst, I think, and you had an
unbelievable finish. The only thing it would have been better
is if Rory and Bryson would have been paired together.

Speaker 3 (26:07):
Jacob and la Hey, Jake, what's on your mind?

Speaker 7 (26:10):

Speaker 13 (26:11):
DP five to eleven, astop to fifty. Rest of the
weekend Saturday Night Edmonton oilers avoiding elimination. And you're right
about those home colors for Edmonton. They just they're just
they just pop from the TV. Those are pretty awesome. Worst,

obviously being from La is the Mookie Betts injury. I
just want to get your thoughts real quick. I know
it's probably a comfort issue, but can the owners of
a superstar on their team, can they require them to
wear a padded glove? I mean, when you see Otani

up at the plate, it really looks like he's wearing
a UFC glove while he's at bat. Because every year
it just seems like a superstar gets a hand injury.
That that's just devastation. When you're missing six to eight weeks.

Speaker 2 (27:05):
Well, you know, and just the bones in your hands,
the number of bones you can break, and those pitches
are not meant to go at you, but they're meant
to go into you, and you know that ball rides
up in you and Muki couldn't get out of the way.
But I have no problem if you're gonna wear a
glove up there, if they let you wear a padded
glove up there, because if you get hit in the hand,

something's gonna break. Just is just the exposure and those
pitches are traveling, you know, upwards one hundred miles an hour.
Something's gonna happen and it's not gonna be good. Yeah, Paul,
I've never really noticed it before.

Speaker 6 (27:39):
With Otani, he has a glove that has a total
shield over the top of it, like a leathery material
that's very hard, and it covers the top of his
hand and a lot of the wrist area a lot
of the other most baseball players wear the traditional glove
with the belcrous strap.

Speaker 3 (27:55):
Phil in Iowa, I fail. What's on your mind?

Speaker 5 (27:58):
Hey man?

Speaker 7 (27:59):
That's more the weekend best.

Speaker 12 (28:02):
Got to take my daughter to the College World Series
and talk her into thing for the ten A game.
She wanted to leave, and as we're walking up the steps,
hurt up, turn around, get to see the lockoff. Amazing
worse of the weekend. H I'm gonna go back to
the Angel or East thing. I know she says, it's

a basketball player. But dude, he missed the ball by
like two feet.

Speaker 3 (28:25):
You have a good one, all right? Yeah, this the
shot gets blocked. Angel.

Speaker 2 (28:33):
I mean, I don't know why she's even trying to
get blocked, because you know, Caitlyn was past her. But
you know, she said it was a basketball play. Caitlyn said,
it's a basketball play. I don't know if Caitlyn truly
believes that. She's had a couple of hard founds going
to the hoop where she's been hitting the head this year.
But then, once again, you kind of have to take

the totality of the league and how often do these
things happen, not just to Caitlyn Clark. We take it,
we extract it, and then all of a sudden that
becomes social media. Caitlin Clark is trying to take the
high road. Angel Reese wants to bring her down to
her level because then she's relevant. How many other games

have you watched with Angel reach this year? And the
answer is probably zero. If she plays against Caitlin Clark,
you've watched Otherwise you don't. But I and I want
to stress this again, she's a really good player. She's
a double double. But there's nothing about her game that
you go that's must see TV. Asia Wilson, watch her.

That's the best player in the game. Like there's players
who are really good, talented, skilled, and you know, we
tend to focus sometimes on the lowest common denominator here
of you know, it's black versus white. They don't like
her because they're jealous of I don't know that, but
I do have to watch the actual game, not just
a to be fair to it. Let me take a break,

we'll talk some basketball. We'll get to Reggie Miller. Does
he believe Charles Barkley is going to retire after next season?
And also one are the Lakers getting their head coach
back after this?

Speaker 2 (30:26):
Todd has a numerology here, or at least somebody is
feeding Todd's some numerology.

Speaker 3 (30:31):
Then we'll get to Reggie Miller. What's your numerology?

Speaker 9 (30:34):
So six seventeen eight was the last time the Celtics
won their championship. Tonight is six seventeen twenty four. The
Boston Celtics Boston area code is six one seven. Something
special about June seventeenth in the air. Looks like the
Celtics will wrap things up tonight.

Speaker 3 (30:48):
Okay, you're guaranteeing it.

Speaker 9 (30:51):
I'm gonna do the Charles Brockert I got wrong to.

Speaker 5 (30:53):
The Celtics are gonna wrap it up.

Speaker 2 (30:54):
Today, bringing Reggie alowishes Miller Junior, the third Turner Sports
Hall of Famer Sheldy trap it up tonight.

Speaker 5 (31:03):
First of all, please tell Todd don't do that again.
Please know that was so bad. Hey, look, I know
everyone's been killing the Celtics over the last two three
days because of their Game four performance. But Theodore, You've
been around this business a long time and you you

understand this. Look, well, anyone care if the Celtics wrap
it up tonight and win in this gentleman's suite in
the history when they go back and look at this
for one series, if it is for one If they
do wrap up tonight, are they going to talk about
the shellacking they took in Game four? No, all they'll
talk about is their eighteenth NBA championship. So I understand

everyone on you know the Networks. Oh my god, it
was wrong with the Celtics Bad game, Marble game. Yes,
they thought that the Metavericks were going to cave in
and it was going to be a cake walk. They
took him for granted, and the basketball guard basketball gods
showed that right. That's what the thirty eight points slacking was.

The question tonight will be can Dallas make shots and
play with that same type of intensity defensively on the
road in another close out situation. That's what it comes
down to. But who cares. It's one game, and if
these playoffs are any indication of what's going on when

a team gets beat by this many points in this bed,
the next night, the team that suffered the next game,
the team that suffered that loss usually comes back and
hands out of slacking themselves. So to answer your question, yeah,
I do think it's over tonight because I just don't
think Dallas can sustain that shot making and more importantly, defensively,

because they're targeting Luca and Luca was better. He was
better defensively in game four? Can you do it again
here in game five? Don't? I don't know, I don't know, damn.

Speaker 2 (33:08):
But if did they figure something out though, reg that
you can take from that game to use tonight. That's
the only thing that Yes, they looked really impressive. They
blew them out. Boston gave up probably at halftime. But
is there something there that you think if Dallas figured
something out that that can help them win tonight.

Speaker 5 (33:26):
Well, a couple of things. Their pace was better, they
played faster, which you and I talked about last week.
And again guys and a shots. Dante Yxon was good
off the bench, Tim Hardaway Junior, there was a sighting
finally he started to make shots that could help. The
thing that the wind did for Dallas, it gave them

a sense of hope, a little bit of life. Now
the heartbeat is beating a little bit now. I will
say this, if they can find a way and win
tonight on the road in Boston, this series, he's completely
changes because now you go back to Dallas and you
would assume they would win that and that sets up
a huge Game seven and we know how Dallas they

are on the road in Game sevens. But again that's
a lot of ifs. But that makes tonight's game so interesting.
If if Dallas can find a way and they have
been good on the road in these playoffs. But they've
got to be able to sustain their shot making, which
they've only done in Game four, and defensively can they

play that way?

Speaker 2 (34:34):
When you see players like Luca complaining all the time
to the officials, I mean, if I am an official,
I'm not going to give you something, and I'm less
likely because I'm human. I'm not like, here you go again, complaining, whining.
And you played with guys, you probably had your moments

where you were always looking for this, but after a while,
it just kind of turns people off. And if I'm
an official, why am I going to give Lucas something
when all you do is complain about everything you know
up and down the floor.

Speaker 5 (35:11):
There's only so many times that you can cry a
wolf in the game of basketball. And I've said this
all along. Luca has not built up any goodwill towards
the official, all of them. I don't even think he
has a favorite official. Normally guys have certain officials that

they can kind of lean on a little bit, talk
to certain kind of ways. I don't think he's built
up any goodwill for any of the officials, and it
will always come back to Hunt, not only him, but
his team because you're not getting into the bonus early.
You're not getting those fifty fifty calls, and that's what

you want at this point of the season. When you
get to the conference finals, in the NBA Finals, there
is always going to be fifty fifty calls were the official,
if they kind of like you or favorable, you might
get it. I don't think Lucas ever getting those calls
because it's constant, and it not only hurts him because

he is such a great player, but it hurts the
team because you're not getting the team in some bonus
and those fifty to fifty calls.

Speaker 2 (36:21):
Theodore and everybody wanted to anoint if Luca and the
MAVs won that, now he would be the best player
in the game, which isn't true. Joker is still the
best player in the game. But hey, you win your title,
now there's validity in saying you're the best player in
the game. I don't know if Lucas really showcased his
talents where you look at him and you go, oh, wow,

there's something special here. I don't think he's played well.
I think he's complained a lot. They're lucky to have
one win here, but I would say Jokers still should
be recognized as the best player in the game.

Speaker 3 (36:56):
Your thoughts, I agree.

Speaker 5 (36:58):
With you too. We'll go back to this conversation too.
This point in the season, it's all about attrition. Can
you get to the finish line being somewhat healthy because
at this point everyone has bumps and bruises. We understand that.
But the way he's laboring up and down the court,
and we all know that he's really healthy on the

offensive end, and he looks like he only has one
leg on the defensive end. So he's gonna have to
again and I hate saying this, get in better shape
so he can withstand in eighty two game schedule, not
that he has to play eighty two, but be healthy
and whole going into the playoffs, where the little bumps

and bruises that come along from series to series they
don't affect you. If you're fortunate enough to make it
to the NBA Finals, you got to get in better shape.
And you look at across the aisle, you look at
Tatum Brown, Holiday White, you know those guys are always
healthy and playing. I think the only question mark for

Boston is for zingis yeah, like he'll never be able
to me play sixty to sixty five games again. He
just gets hurts too. It's too long of a season
for him. So I think they'll be load management for
for Zingas going forward, always for the Celtics, because they
want him healthy and hold going into the playoffs.

Speaker 2 (38:24):
Talking to Reggie Miller, the Hall of Famer Turner's Sports
NBA analysts, speaking of which Charles Barkley announcing his retirement
after next season, do you believe it?

Speaker 5 (38:36):
I don't want to believe it. Well, first of all,
let me say this, this could be retirement for all
of us at Turner Network next year.

Speaker 2 (38:45):
If well, what are you going to do now? Like,
have you been told anything? I know Charles in the
studio show, but you know you're their lead analyst.

Speaker 5 (38:52):
Here we are in the dark. We have no idea.
This is way above my pay grade. I'm hoping. I
think our leadership is at the table from everything I'm
hearing again, which isn't a lot. And I hope they're,
you know, having a fourth a two minute it's left

in the fourth, and they're, you know, trying to pull
out a win here. It would be nice. I think
Charles is getting ahead of the story because his name
is being thrown out there with NBC at Amazon and
the possibilities, and I think he just wanted to set
the record straight. And good for him. He's always done

things on his own terms. You and I know Charles
very well, and he's not going to let other people
dictate what he wants to do. And I think he
wanted to get ahead of the story and announce this.
So if this is his last year, we've had conversations.
I'm like, look, dude, we're going to go out with
a bang. So whatever happens at our network if we

do get a piece of the pie and we're one
of the the four horsemen or not. If this is
our Lane Duck year and this is my last year
at Turner as well, we're gonna have fun and go
out with a beer.

Speaker 2 (40:10):
If you were on the Lakers and they thought about
bringing in JJ Reddi would never coached before, what would
your would you have concerned?

Speaker 5 (40:20):
Well? Who am I on the Lakers? Am I Lebron?
Am I?

Speaker 3 (40:25):
How about? I?

Speaker 5 (40:26):
Am? I? Am I? Often?

Speaker 3 (40:29):
You know I'm gonna make you Lebron?

Speaker 5 (40:33):
Well, we do a podcast together. I know his basketball IQ.
So I think if I'm Lebron. I'm cool with it
because I have a working relationship with JJ. Here's the thing.
I don't want any person out there trying to get
an NDIA job. We know how hard it is, especially
as a coach. As a player, it's extremely hard, but

as a coach even harder at times. So if this
is what JJ want, and I haven't really heard a
lot of comments coming out of his camp that he
wants the Laker job, I know his name is being
thrown out there, but I have not heard. And he's
had an opportunity to address these, and I know he's
in the NBA Finals, but he hasn't addressed this. But
if he does want this, kudos and good luck to you.

I just know if you look at the history of
the Lakers since Phil Jackson has left, right, the turnover
has been what two to three years Vogel, Darvin Ham,
Mike Brown, you name it. A lot of people have
not survived. And now you're gonna ask a guy who's
never never coached in this league to lead one of

two franchises that has seventeen at the time as we're
speaking now NBA Championships. That's a lot to ask for
JJ Reddick. If that's what he wants, great, but I'm
not quite sure your first time out the gate, this
is what you want. I could be with.

Speaker 2 (42:00):
Theodore, yeah, but I would worry if I'm JJ Reddick
about how the other players are perceiving the relationship I
have with Lebron and is it preferential treatment? I don't,
And you're not treating everybody the same. I realized that
that if you're a star, you'll be treated differently. But

I guess that's what I would be concerned about if
I'm JJ. How did the other players feel about this?

Speaker 5 (42:27):
But Theodore too? Also if coach Barrego came in here too,
he's going to treat Lebron different than e t treats
everyone else in all.

Speaker 2 (42:37):
Yeah, but he's got a podcast with JJ Reddick. If
if somebody else comes in, but it doesn't matter.

Speaker 5 (42:42):
Who's coaching the Lakers, Lebron will be looked upon differently
just because of his body of work and who he is.

Speaker 2 (42:50):
How awkward is that podcast going to be? If JJ
doesn't get this job, I'm going to start listen to
it after that.

Speaker 5 (42:57):
Well, okay, and I want to be honest right now,
between you and I do we think Lebron is in
on the on the coaching search.

Speaker 3 (43:08):
Let's put it this way. I can't believe that he's not.

Speaker 5 (43:14):
So then if if that is the case, don't you
think it would be almost a no brainer that JJ
would get it?

Speaker 2 (43:19):

Speaker 3 (43:19):
Well, no, I think he's fascinated.

Speaker 5 (43:21):
If JJ doesn't get it, are we looking at Lebron like, dude,
why didn't you get your guy the gig? If he's
in on these talks, which personally I'm gonna say he
is not, has he been asked? Maybe? But I don't
think he's calling Jeanie or Rob pulling it up and
saying and lobbying for JJ reddick.

Speaker 2 (43:42):
Okay, but I think he control. Control and inclusion are
two different things. Does he have control of the situation?

Speaker 3 (43:49):

Speaker 2 (43:50):
No, is he included? I believe that he has to be.
He was fascinated with Dan Hurley. He was fascinated with
Dan Hurley and heard him on JJ's podcast.

Speaker 5 (44:03):
Okay, but in inclusion can mean a lot of things.
Inclusion can mean a simple phone call, hey, this is
what we're thinking, or day to day operations of being included.
There's lots of levels here.

Speaker 3 (44:17):
Do you think Lebron's involved in this.

Speaker 5 (44:21):
I think he's been asked, but I think not to
the point where he will have that say the final say.
I think they they brought him to Barregos, the Hurleys
and JJ, Reddicks and whomever. This is our pot, this
is what we're thinking of, is come across his desk.
There's been multiple conversations, but I don't think he's calling.

Now that it's down, Now that Hurley's out and it's
between JJ and maybe brego, he's saying go with JJ.

Speaker 3 (44:51):
I don't think he said Lebron more involved in the
coaching surge or Bronni being drafted by the Lakers.

Speaker 5 (44:58):
Wow, that's I would certainly say he's definitely more involved
with Bronn and that fifty five pick, right, isn't that
don't the Lakers have the fifty fifth pick in this
draft and that's what everyone is kind of like looking
at where Lebron could fall. I think between him Rich

Paul Ronnie, he's more involved with that than he is
the head coaching. Yeah. Yeah, that's his blood. That's his blood,
and he's made no secret that he wants to play
with him.

Speaker 2 (45:37):
Well, is he gonna hurt him more? That if they
don't draft Bronnie or if they don't take JJ Reddick.

Speaker 5 (45:43):
Okay, I know that the draft is when and when
does free agency start? Because he's going to opt out,
we assume correct which one comes first, because if they
don't draft that and opinion on who drafts Bronnie. I
mean a lot of things are in play here. They

really are, because if they don't draft him and they
had an opportunity to and say, for instance, Dallas who
said they're looking at him hard at fifty eight, what
a could you see lebron Mark.

Speaker 3 (46:17):
Cuban re you, Hey, yeah, that's a long time ago.

Speaker 2 (46:22):
Yeah, But I think so June thirtieth is free agency,
and then the week prior you have the draft, like
twenty fourth, twenty fifth or twenty fifth, twenty six, something
like that.

Speaker 5 (46:36):
So I guess a lot of that will depend on
where Bronni goes and then free agency.

Speaker 2 (46:41):
I still think San Antonio would be the best place
for him. That you're out of the spotlight, You're on
a team that doesn't have great expectations, you have Wemba Nyama,
and you have Popovich, and maybe there's a.

Speaker 5 (46:55):
Are you talking about senior or junior.

Speaker 2 (46:57):
I'm talking about Bronni, but I think that your learning
curve would not be it as sharp of an angle,
that it would be a slower Hey, nobody's watching the Spurs.
Now you get some spotlight on the Spurs. He gets
an opportunity to play maybe younger team. Vibe with you know,

lim ben Yama, you got Papovich there to help him.

Speaker 5 (47:23):

Speaker 2 (47:23):
I just think you go to the Lakers, it feels
like he's going to be a G League Yo yo,
He'll be like, go down there and play. Hey, we
have a nationally televised game. Let's bring Ronnie up.

Speaker 5 (47:35):
I agree. I think the expectations would be much higher
with the Lakers. I think he could grow more with
san Antonio, all the things you eluded. Hey, let's not
forget Papavich and lebron have that relationship of winning that
gold medal together. I think the Spurs would be a

great place because it's a young team. I will dis
agree with you a little bit because because of Victor
and the Spurs, they will they will be under the spotlight.
They will be on national television a lot because of
the success of Victor, so you will see him quite
a bit. But there won't be any expectations of winning.
He goes to the Lakers. We know all the Lakers

roll right, it's championship or bust. And you've got your
father who is I'm out Rushmore type player.

Speaker 2 (48:25):
I said that Bronnie would be taken in the first round,
and I risk pie to the face.

Speaker 5 (48:31):
So that is that an actual bet with my Danny? Yeah?

Speaker 2 (48:36):
Yeah, all four? Dan Etsy. They said to Bronny that
Bronnie wouldn't be taken in the first round, and I
said that somebody might Nope, Nope, not gonna happen.

Speaker 5 (48:47):
Okay, make that five.

Speaker 3 (48:53):
Yeah, I don't know why.

Speaker 2 (48:54):
I just thought maybe somebody gets squirrely here, and I
don't know.

Speaker 5 (48:59):
I've heard his workouts have been fairly good.

Speaker 2 (49:03):
The thing that, yeah, but your pro day is a
quarterback red No, but they're different.

Speaker 3 (49:13):
Look good on his pro day.

Speaker 5 (49:14):
When you go to an organization, you have to work out.
You are not scripting. There, your your work. Now, when
he was working out for teams to see him at
the Lakers, I think he was at the Lakers facility.
That's scripted. But when you have to go to a
Dallas so you have to go to a Phoenix and
work out for the organization. You're on their turns and

you're on their workout, so that's not scripted.

Speaker 3 (49:41):
Okay, well, I guess I'm alone on the brownie.

Speaker 5 (49:45):
I like Boston cream Pie for me a little. What
what are you just? Matter?

Speaker 2 (49:51):
Doesn't matter, doesn't matter, Boston cream Pie. If you want
to do that based off of you know, Celtics winning
the title, that's fine. It's okay. What what pie would you
want me to smash you with?

Speaker 5 (50:03):
I would probably just go with the old fashioned whipped
cream pie. Okay.

Speaker 3 (50:09):
I got to throw some blueberries in there. And you're
a health guy.

Speaker 5 (50:12):
Yes, I am nice. Nice, Thank you for thinking of me,
my help.

Speaker 2 (50:17):
That's what I do. He is the Hall of Famer
Reggie Miller Turner Sports. Great to talk to you, reg
