I can't begrudge it as they walk in the park for the warriors last night. Eight tiptoe. Through the tulips. Another cupcake. On the schedule like I predicted. And the best case. The warriors got rest. Yet the warriors proved last night. How a leaked superstar. All stars. Can get rest in this debate on how to get players more rest. Just blow a lot of bad team in the first half. And should everybody late in the game. Tell multi millionaires should get rest. The warriors proved that last night on 957 in the game. It's time for you to join the conversation. Tweet them at JT the brick. Call triple 89579570. Or text at 95795. Now here's JT the brick. The majority and a shaky with the on a big dated a really big day today as we got a lot to get to. You could show lined up via I think you gotta love what we have in store for you today on a warriors Wednesday. Chris Broussard. Other great MBA inside their checks and also my conversation last night with Lavar ball I think you're gonna love this the guys in absolute lunatic animal my national show last night double play a portion of it he's the guy that is gone. Who plays for UCLA who's a great player to a younger respondents. He'll play in high school were both going to UCLA. And he is demanding. One billion dollars. But the branding of all three of his sons combined. In a sneakers slash apparel deal we'll play that sometime next hour stick around for that. We lead doesn't always do with the warriors and the warriors last night. At another game as I told you would sixteen left they had a number of blocks that a couple of flip a calling games and a few games that they should weigh. Our last night obviously was one bull locks as they played a team that. A show and playing a little bit tougher and harder because are competing for the eight seed but again. If you're competing for the eight seed in the east of the west he really competing at all. Are you really it does not what you want you want would you rather miss the playoffs. And just say hey let's get into the draft in the lottery and move on or would you rather be playing to the eight seed to give boat raced above the warriors won the season starts off mavericks. I had the lead early in this game authority to 28 at the end of the first quarter and that's probably the only criticism you could have for the warriors as of late especially with that game against Philadelphia. Where they were outplayed the entire game and needed a comeback. Philadelphia outplayed them early and Dallas I'll play them in the first quarter last night but. Again when you play it back to back game in this travel involved sometimes you could start slow. Apple wants to write a Mon and this team started to attack the rim they were vicious with their dumped. It's 4741. Boy you stepped very capable drama drew might get right down Broadway look out everybody get out the way for right hand slammed for provide greater Rick Carlisle has seen enough he's college Wally the lawyers have an eight point lead. Largest for either team in this half. No adrenaline to now a lot of points and a cameo at seven point she was one of four from rate to a six from the field two of two from the free throw Lonnie and eight assists along with seven rebounds. But seven points in the game when he throws down dogs like that looks like he. He'd be great to see him in the slam dunk contest. For the violence of some of those dunks that was. Beautiful estate Klay Thompson has been I think the X-Factor for this team in 32 minutes he was nine of fifteen from the field five of eight. From foray on his way to 23. Dribbled through the front door on the far side gives up the Clay Johnson takes a great ride side dad's. The and that will only fuel the fire there sixty to 44 Rick Carlisle wants a full time out. Yeah it's important that when bench players play or they get moved up to starter like McCaw have eagle Dolly is out in the game that you get. Productive minutes from these guys from Clarke in macaw on the call played thirty minutes. In this game he's got young legs he was plus six on the night with ten points I loved his energy level. The entire game especially in the half court set. The we'd look on its chest pass to Matt Ford back of o'clock. Ditto the white haired slam but because that double figures beautiful pass by Matt Barnes. He played great when you look at the depth of this team and the team doesn't have adapted admin Harrison Barnes. And when Bogut was there and Mo buckets when you look at the players that they lost. In order to bring in Kevin Doran via a live with that you have to live with making moves like that no doubt about it but. I'll take a clay again when Kleiza hitting phrased it spreads everybody out and Dallas they just couldn't figure out where clay it was all night cook off. Near way. Staff curry catches on the valves down the lane rotate to play taps it it's a corner for it at my. Money in the bank clerk why a his fifth story everybody's taken five he's made five. And it's now 7253. That's a good problem to have Avant two to three great three point shooters and the staff Gary. Thirty minutes of the night he was only three of nine from long distance Kerry did even go to the free throw line in this game. An assistant a couple of steals up to play really hard in an easy victory. Staff to the front court off the screen left jab dribble. Five's Clark right corner afraid doesn't get it slapped down by making the Bard's back the staff bill Faith Hill flyer Gayle hit. Step Kerry now has seventy that's his third triple of the night. Parts of the lawyers when they get 112 to 87 and they absolutely can play great defense again I mean look at Dallas 21 points at home in the third quarter sixteen. In the fourth quarter that is a tremendous. Defensive. Effort and Steve Kerr knows that the defense will have to carry him at times in the playoff. You're out on the road you have to defend. You've got him maintain a really good defense to win. Road games and I think we've done that last last several seasons are our team has been in the top five. The NBA defensively and then obviously we've got plenty of shooters lots scorers so if we can. We can defend at a high level we won't we feel like we're always gonna find points and give ourselves a chance when. My biggest take away from the game last night was minutes and that's what it will be when you have these games against inferior teams. The games that I call locks games that the warriors go to win. No doubt about it that was last night even though was a road game by enabling these players to rest in the fourth quarter. Especially stepped curry I think that's important for Steve Kerr don't follow. Stead of being at 35362930. And and so that's a significant difference over the course of the season and especially right now you know down the stretch coming off set that tough trip couple weeks go back east good time for us to be able to extend leads and get him on the bench. Our stuff carry out all night for the mavericks he can imagine the pressure that he's under 27 minutes is only one of four from re trying to play against his brother. Who's arguably the best player in the league it's fun for staff he'd like to do it more but he went up against his brother and got the Dhabi just. Knowing no rumor got their turn extension. Extended minutes ago when he is each other's this surreal kind of feeling still just to see your brother who battled with since we've you'll remember on NBA floor together. This is a specialist and it's amazing to see what he's done here and stated James and they Sloan showing where he's really about. I really love that sound bite imagine that I have two younger. Boyz I've a fifteen year old and thirteen year old son and they don't get a chance to play on the same team do their age from Little League to basketball as a dad. And again my conversation what Lavar ball coming up to be great to see your kids. Played together on the same court. Let alone in the NBA at the highest level. What do testament to the curry family and the way those kids were brought up and their goals and their visualization. And how they were able to pull this off finally. With Steffi told everybody really to come down they were definitely in a slump a week week and a half ago now looks like they're out of it. It's funny. 22 weeks ago I was 10 is throwing everybody said no not to get ahead were so loses and he never panic never lose confidence and just keep shooting. Our actual that leads me what I wanna talk about today and I hope you dual cell. Via Twitter JT the brick or start dialing now a lot of people get in if you dial now. I can get yuppie wanna have a break all we don't have a guest AAA 9579570888957. 9570. There's been this big debate about rest but you've been listening to the show and no I've been the leader in this debate I've been talking about NBA rest. For years. Not months years and all of a sudden today guys on the radio and on television. Are leading their talk shows and their television shows on NBA arrest like all of a sudden that this topic became mainstream. Three of four days ago though you don't even doing and I have been talking about this ad nauseam. At times I do beat a topic down steroids in baseball. Pete Rose getting into the hall of fame NBA ref stood wide players don't deserve to have rest when healthy I know everybody's jumping on the bandwagon. You called into the show more on MBA players resting then some high profile talk show host have talked about this topic in the last two days. It's because it's an integrity issue really is I'm all about integrity when it comes to sports. I care about the legalities of sports the rule breakers. The people cut corners because I'm just a fan behind the microphone. I always envisioned myself everytime I tell my kids this all the time. Ice I envision myself on the radio as a fan sitting in the upper deck with a microphone. I talk to fans like go to games I go to a lot of games. I talk to fans and I interact with fans like him bring that to the radio show. Now all of a sudden they start to care about you now they're caring about the fans were getting ripped off. Because NBA players are resting. Their being accused of resting. And now guys like LeBron James. Or biting back issue LeBron doesn't like any type of negative. Attention I also said this about Kevin Durant before he came to the warriors to right it's got rabbit ears he listens to what everybody's thing and LeBron. Now believes that he's the villain again because he set out that game in Los Angeles with a cup of coffee. And now the NBA is appointing to this guy LeBron James on how he can take a night off. How does that wasn't going low number. Yeah. Instead it's. This it's absolutely. It was pump enormous ten years we'll views fifteen. There are low but you know. Smartest thing public. Give god the game golf and go five championships. As the smartest thing. You know we'll sell some more posts on big guns that it. Article doesn't have recently it's field. Okay. The reason why it's. I really think that's an excellent sound byte by LeBron James is details you. That LeBron understands that all of a sudden he's taken heat for something Gregg Popovich started well there's a lot of truth to that. Greg Popovich. Who's won five championships at the San Antonio Spurs he started he started by arresting Tim Duncan. In the latter half of his career to have been arrested for the post season. And it's war Steve Kerr is a protege of Gregg Popovich. Steve Kerr has done this multiple times he's got a championship ring it'll have the best winning percentage. In the history of the NBA for a coach in his first four years to which working for him. But that's not the problem the problem is the fans LeBron James to sit there and smugly say he doesn't understand why it's a problem now. It shows you how detached he is. From the fans in a LeBron got him a movie company. He's got some bright television commercials you would think that he would be connected with the fans but he actually is. He's a global billionaire. Anything god does and interact with the fans he's got kids who plays basketball we get that he's a good guys not in the police blotter he doesn't throw punches he's not. Get in trouble he's not doing recreational drugs. But LeBron knows that the league has a problem because of this television contract the reason why these players are making more money than they've ever made. I mean not double and triple Magic Johnson ten times. Ten times what bird and magic and triple quadruple what Michael Jordan Michael Jordan only made ninety million dollars his entire career. And Derrick Rose got a 250. Million dollar shoe contract. A quarter to a billion dollars the players are making this money because the television. So when you put the warriors. On national television and you make them play back to back games on national TV and have the travel all the way from the Bay Area. Of course the warriors are gonna be pissed off about it. Too bad. Lace them up. Big quiet and play in wind for the fans of the east today the Bay Area in the global fans that are building for the warriors in China. In Europe around the world. No one cares about us nibbling professional athlete who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a night and who needs a night off. So this is get really good I think this is a show you should come do for this topic. When necessary. And the warriors to tie this into the end of the monologue the warriors last night did the perfect thing. They showed up against an inferior team. They played their starters. And their starters got out in the fourth quarter and got rest. Does the perfect storm. That's what should happen every night if Steve Kerr wants to sit out starters what are you should do is do what he did would dream on dream last night. Raymond green played 28 minutes if you wanna give joy Ahman Green rushed let them play nineteen minutes. Drank model come and play a lot of energy minutes that'll sit down and his legs will be fresh for the next night. Wow so many players are getting upset about this topic I think Jeff Van Gundy the former head coach is probably the best and he's connected to the Bay Area. On this topic about LeBron James and players resting because he broadcast these games on one of the biggest broadcast partnerships. I was really troubled by LeBron James Sanders not DM BA can do because they shouldn't be put in the position to have to do he should understand. Although one of the guys that people take tickets to see it's my obligation. To play when a paltry. Now a lot of people suggesting that maybe they shorten the season they take it from 82 games down to 7270. Games a Steve Kerr understands this car. Was asked about this because everybody would have to take a pay cut you don't get more money for playing last games I wouldn't be opposed to a. Even. It's my own salary. But it's something that everybody can read too I think even. I just going down to. Some five weeks. I think that would make it dramatic. Differences yeah I don't see that happening because there's there's money at stake for everybody. I do think this can be remedied. Maybe not remedied. Dramatically help us with what we started working for pictures. And consideration. You graphics it's been. I was get a kick out of when really rich people start telling you what they'll sacrifice. Like George Clooney. Drive his Prius to the Academy Awards or he'll take his Prius and is electric car to the grocery store. When he and his wife Liam private jets to canned. They fly all over the globe on private jets they get in limousines and go up and down Hollywood boulevard but when the cameras are on them. Man we're just walking to the grocery store and we don't want plastic bags we just want paper and won't go home with our Prius instead. I look like rich people and rich NBA athletes and coaches say take a pay cut really. You'll take a pay cut from what six million or nine million as a coach down to what. Eight point two million. Does that affect the fans. Really be on this note. I've said this again and I'll stand by my comments that I think are accurate I believe that any player in the league who was an act of all star. May the eastern or Western Conference all star team in the current year or the year before. If they should the game and they're healthy they should be fine 100000. Dollars but not a lot of money for a guy like LeBron makes 300000. A game. But it could be a lot of money for a guy like stuffed curry who hasn't really gotten his big big big contract yet. If you have a better idea than that let me know but I think you start off with a hundred grand Earl Starr because of Steve guard decides to sit. Jobs where he decides to fit. In a Livingston for game you don't find those guys that all stars people don't. Hey for a ticket. The C Shaun Livingston. And Zaza it's great that the on the team they add value to the team they help the team win an NBA title or Q. If they don't play you're gonna walk out of the building. The steps and clay and LeBron and Carmelo. And Chris Paul and Dirk Nowitzki. And all great players in this league decided they needed night off for no apparent reason because they can play 1920 minutes it just whack them for a hundred Bryant. Then a cop. The plumber. The teacher. The accountant. The intern and the student who goes to that game that night doesn't get ripped off. You've got to do something the inmates are running the asylum. Two other quick topics raiders relocation count just on the morning show no idea what's gonna happen with the vote I said that from the day I took over this time slot. They were don't Nevada Mark Davis when he couldn't get a deal done in Oakland. In his mind he believed not JT the brick. Nobody else Mark Davis believed that he couldn't get a deal done in Oakland because of the politics. The least the aim is to land the public money he needed or maybe didn't need the loan value all of very complicated stuff once he decided to look towards Nevada. This was gonna come down to a vote. The vote should happen on Monday. It's either going to be a yes vote no vote or they'll push the ball back to home. I don't cover the relocation beat there are several people who do that I talked to consistently. Most people believe that the raiders have the votes and they will pass relocation. I'm not sure I don't know how it's gonna play out. Everybody has a vested interest in this on the Ryder flagship. Keep it here and will publish the story accurately. Because I don't think it's been covered accurately in the Bay Area. Is that a lot of lazy members of the media. Who have no sources within the raiders none within Nevada zero within the league we're just going on television saying I hope. I want to I hope I wish I think I have no idea what they're talking about. Keep it here we know what we're talking about on this issue something can come down Monday. If it does will cover it like a breaking news story. If we get pushed back till may will wait till may of the vote is a no vote will cupboard is a no vote if it's a yes vote will collaborate. As a yes vote and a one other quick point I wanna get too quickly here as we keep going Colin GAAP and okay. That that's the third rail again when the president United States goes to a rally. Because things are going well for him the president. And he starts. What acting Colin Kaplan and saying he's the reason. Like other NFL owners won't hire on because they don't want a tweet a negative tweet. From a sitting US president. You've made some news young man. Young man you've made some news aching in me made news. Playing quarterback and high level on the Super Bowl made news. Deciding not to run. And devaluing yourself as a quarterback because you can't hit the broadside of a barn throwing the football. I'm losing weight and becoming a V get and not putting muscle mass on all of this. It's come to the reason why Colin tapper and it does not have a job offer today. He's got a lot of great things. And what he's done recently just by raising money and awareness. The starvation and water issues meals on wheels he deserves a standing ovation. Even from me. A guy who completely does not respect I understand the value when his right to take in need during the anthem. I don't respected but I give him a standing ovation for what he's doing now. To help out other people who are in distress but capita to make it big news if you wanna talk about a triple A 957. 9570. The monologue was brought to you by Porsche Walnut Creek. And 2016. Premier Porsche dealer. All right a lot to get to Kurt he'll join us coming up next from pro basketball talk. My conversation with low bar ball next hour and coach action from the 49 or empire on the sad news of Dwight Clark. And the diagnosis of mail laughs and Chris Broussard the elite NBA insider all come or not. From ten to noon everyday. On the flagship of the age. The writers in the warriors. 957 the game. Back to warrior Wednesday used jeans. And momentarily from. From pro basketball talk to get ready to go and busy day today a lot of news happening around the Bay Area mostly led by the warriors win the warriors. Back on track again that wasn't difficult to see with this schedule this portion of the schedule. As we bring in a court heal and from pro basketball talk at basketball talk. And cart before we get to NBA rest and warriors rest. And it's important to look at the warriors schedule the rest of the way I thought this would really come down. 21 game against seen Antonio San Antonio is that a bit of a hiccup. Now for the warriors. They still have home games against New Orleans Los Angeles. Minnesota. I mean they got some cupcakes Sacramento. Still on the schedule I think the warriors can put this away. And put the spurs behind them before the final two with three games of the season do you agree. It's card there. Time we just lost and won't allow that to decorate and they get. What happened. I interpret it that you're you're spot on. Aid or slightly softer schedule and a little while at San Antonio hit you know Gregg Popovich said he wasn't gonna push for that they get that popped their couple games back now. That's just been very very difficult and the updates just even if they win game in San Antonio their schedule it's not. Notice Topper but African states the rest the way the warriors should be orbit. Yeah I think the only shot that San Antonio realistically has. It is next week Tuesday Wednesday the warriors play at Houston and at Simi Antonio. The spurs got to hope that they lose both those games that they lose to Houston. On a Tuesday night in and they clip on San Antonio gets the warriors at home and that's a two game swing. In the loss column with the warriors win at Houston on Tuesday march 28. I think it's cruising cruise control from there on out the remaining schedule should be enough to keep Popovich had bad. Exactly Popovich is going to realized pretty quickly too that he's got to get there quickly. And there. They're not and I'm not rest he's not gonna get. But how the song Marcus Aldridge and even wild advocates might soft on the stretched that he knows he's got to be fresh for the playoffs especially that looks like they're going to be the two seed. It is we've discussed before that that much tougher road you're gonna get. Either physically beat up by Memphis sort have to deal with Russell Westbrook and OK in the first round. And then you've got that very confused and into the second round so you're gonna make sure his guys are right at the expense of chasing. You can go state to heart. One of the premier NBA insiders joins us curriculum from pro basketball talk at basketball talk. I give him a follow on Twitter what we get to NBA rest for players. Isn't really the half. And Anthony Davis this is really about. Two or three teams but I've been telling you this for years card I think your pop can get away with the Steve Kerr and to run little. Then everybody's gonna do it because shouldn't Carmelo. Be able to go to Jeff Horner second set looked. I guess I make more money than staff I make more money than all these guys I needed night off we know we're not make the playoffs. And Carmelo can fight that fight because of dry months get the night off why shouldn't Carmelo on a team has no shot at the playoffs. What exactly besides if it's what you are saying is true and if the market doesn't want to night off just get to technical. Free night out but. For the direct and guide in it merely especially in the warriors case you know from a couple which of most of these tunes. It rarely comes from the players occasionally the players will go. I'm a little beaten morn down I can use an offer most of the time. Because these guys were all tracking stopped during practices because they're monitored so closely. They've got analytic technique you know Cory great move a little slower he is. Clearly gotten tired legs let's give him in the top of the stretch we get unite up in a row like they have. They didn't light up at the end of the road trip becomes home where we days are and they got games home and suddenly looks fine again. They know they've practiced spot they know how it works so it's usually almost always the team it's very rarely the player out for the night off but you're right and guys guys not let her teens are still out than it ought to just that nobody cares and frankly people aren't concerned about the big teams unless it's on national how. Her ordeal and is our guest on let's keep those with the warriors too when I look at their schedule. At the end of the year when they put the lakers at home the last game of the year they'll have the last most likely clinched. Although I haven't clinched this will be a great night for the warriors to take off. The lakers are marquee team are much more famous than the warriors ever dreamed of being near the lakers just like the Celtics. On Wednesday April 12. A lot of our listeners who are listening now only have a ticket to that game. A warrior fans they do not. Have tickets to the opener against San Antonio they don't have tickets that they've done the second half that's the game. That dad bought for his son and daughter to go to. What should Cardona and I'd like that the game won't matter should he play the warriors for ten minutes or against suck it up and rest for a does all stars. I think you're going away but it is it's a concern for the league and will post a couple of minutes. You know it's not the worst idea in terms of right especially the warriors and the cavaliers. And some of these players. Look I don't get this weekend off and on bond ticket I can afford tickets and chipped. To eight games like he does see. Curry or honor it is particularly on the. Like the end of the season and then they're not there that is concerned. Politically. If I'm current still thinking big picture I get paid to win the championship. Okay most pushed back and about this when you know well you wouldn't like about this for awhile. Action didn't start happening to ABC yes because it took a road games. What they did they tell the players in the league will not believe the players. And the general managers that they care more about T and T. And ABC ESPN or. Is that just I don't stock caused Mankins opened up the Adidas. I think they honestly I don't think they care too much about which one it is I think it just at the timing of it that certainly. Certainly players have been arrested on Thursday night it's just those Saturday night games were getting a little hard to cook. And ABC lot of those gains since late January into the you know what used to be that primetime college football ought. Now here comes the NBA upper bowl season and like it would put these guys and they are. And the last two weeks the big stars don't show up and I think that CI ABC would stick but I don't know that it's. Teams specific so much as scheduled specific in both cases the particularly the worst case. And just like we put a lot of things picked it was eight games in thirteen days or something at your game and like you know. No and I think the league that's what we get the deal with desk if you're gonna write the game up like a playoff game and put it in primetime slot like that. You've got to give guys on both teams will rest leading up to it or or aunt or after so that they're not treated as well. I disagree with I don't think these guys need rest on the stand behind I don't think they need rest I think they have days off they have an off season and a half times they have timeouts. The implant timeout sloppy game to get rest and on top of that they don't play. Every night back to back to back and this is what they get paid to do I believe that west should be for injured players. Not tired players that the definition to me I'll never change on that. When you need rest it's because you're tired you must have time off when you're injured I think the league going four and got to run your card is gonna have to decide. What's the deal is it about injuries. Or is it about rest and as you say maybe not having enough rest leaks to injury. That'll be the debatable topic going forward at. That's double talk all talked and actually my friend take care. Record deal and that's an important point. When we deal with the rest what do you believe you know if if a guy's really rundown. I think he's prone to getting hurt. I get out of stuff curry is worn out and he needs some time off maybe give them a night off. You can't do all the time on a nationally televised game look the fact that the warriors and revolves around the warriors glow. The earth the war of the warriors are earth everything revolves around. Because what's happening here is they control the league when it comes to wins and losses to still be the ones. They control the national television contract because of they sit there and national games people freak out there and they have four all stars when no other team has more than two maybe three in Cleveland. On that was driven we always appreciate her coming on driven by the all new Korea Kia of Newark. Online a premier Kia of Newark dot com coming up next Chris Broussard has an interesting opinion. On NBA players resting that was from my national show last night. And your phone calls are gonna open phone segment AAA 957957. Know how should Steve Carr handle rest. The rest of the way. I just say when games by blowouts and let them see it in the fourth quarter. On 957 again him. Now back to warrior Wednesday. Here's JT the brick. I thought the Jonas cagey with you Matt my Yoko old Jonas at 1115 in my conversation. Went low bar ball at 1130 you do not wanna miss this if you're a sports. Mom or dad make sure you're around 1130 to see a guy who's pushing. But possibly write in protecting his songs don't forward. And make it money Chris Broussard is our NBA insider anomaly here on. 957 the game but he joins me on fox Sports Radio at least once a week. And Chris I wanna jump in here right out of the gate. We picked the players the all stars all the great players that we're gonna find go unfold if they sit out because they need rest. Well the interesting thing at this. It's in talk similarly an executive board of thirteen like they don't typically rent player. Now that you they don't believe the problem is the light years. They believe the problem is management and coaches. Because he's stated that it reform doctor of their client what are you look all of mortally ill. You know you've got to wrap these guys that they can only place so we need me out a big problem with that though. And how it was going to demand it is. Ellie in the play got like 32 minutes tonight. Anyway you know like at 383730. Not think like that. So. In the right flat out over a threat is all of the owner that's why it's their first rather they go to the players. Because they think it's more ownership. You can that we can debate that in and do our speculation and I'll. But that's how literally steals. About this situation so I think they're trying to go out of 48 it would player if they have to. Well obviously Steve Ballmer who paid a lot of money at forty overpaid. For the clippers but it might be a great investment long term Mark Cuban as high profile James Dolan always have a lot of controversy around him. Are you chasing the story on what owners would be upset about this so what owners are gonna be more vocal in the coming weeks or months on this topic. Well you believe that the guided native into the corner quotes sports. Goal I would think he'd be on the bottom resting need I don't know that we're sure work. When you look at Omer. And obviously the clippers have rested you know Blake Griffin yeah Andre Jordan just recently no rest. I've or rather talk about it but at this time it hurts bare rock. Wonder if there all players or. You know with the people in the state Nebraska play in LA in city on the bottom line and Kevin Love retiree you're being. Did I ever bombers on the bottom line it would beleaguered certainly did certainly it would. There are look even if it's only. Looked deeper a couple of superstars. If it hurts the perfection of Billy. With diet with. With networks. To prop. And I do the problems you know. And it into story into these are the elite force start you know I think the worst that body in the outlook for the league so. It's something that is very serious in elderly think that the weird that you don't really take it in the because. Looks at those in place it there that you are overworked and I've had a job. A patient. And you work sixty hours we work in your productivity. Almost armaments. Yeah now we re not getting enough sleep didn't act yeah well. I don't think that industry is true grit that player can play all 82 game they're there LB lately there LP. Analogue careers they think it's not they Reggie Miller I'll call. Local paper we can go and boy born odds bell Canadian chartered flight. Like they acted a lot of you know early in his career but I think they're a so I think they can address it aired a lot that they they can do. These guys know it's like your course in any player. Because obviously these players make a ton of money. And I think what what happened is that the gains with just start Larry is saying it's so it's Bo sat out because the upper respiratory. Or yes strained hamstring. Horry as you know back problems or whatever. So I don't know it's hard to lead I will admit that. Chris Broussard is our guest where do you believe the warriors stand. On this topic and Joseph Laker because they're the only team. That's for all stars to rant to his heart stepped curry had ankle injuries early in his career he's not a a guy who's really big and strong when it comes stab and he's a great athlete but is he durable enough that he wears down night in and night out and they're trying to build a dynasty. With this team what do you think Steve Kerr in the connection to Popovich and obviously ownership stands unrest. I think they are or those days that there was directly got back I think it would give me that believe. And I play let's 68 out of seventy game a bit like that. But obviously. Two weeks ago you know eight days ago they got is being bowl in Italy is Latin latest round of discussions because they. Out there player. Against this burden at that nationally televised game. Don't want yours I don't blame last year that you're at least Def curry injured or injury would eat we know it was way. You know hey you know. Are. Ordered thirty more minutes again last year everybody talked about what they opened or 73 land and all the mean more. Like a player or overworked that would freak injury it would have been it would have fatigue. I think that the war is players are art which he. I don't know but I think in order those scenes that does look at it and say you know we got a rep got there. Chris Broussard on NBA and warriors rest. Christian west Oakland you're up next stop and warriors on 957 again get dressed. Are all agree with everything Arctic now. Both. Agent Malone stock Jordan oh I. 001. Old tired we locked away. The truth read what it's like at the honor and I very much so what that it got that about a month ago. All arguing that. National basketball players but not a lot of that it'll. The proliferation at the if you generate it in the next cycle go to our elected to a prompt you know. Great school locked out. Can't hit the ball travel the circuit that aren't great and it will all they played like that day. You'll have to quietly yet. Every acre property law. That you know aren't our equity player. All are talking about. We need why can't let that. Can edit it higher at like outlook brought it. It acts I'd like yesterday all I do you winning championships. So I can tell my coach at. Its money in the world during its LP the terrible. You know their party you are I think it's a week ago what it would be fine. It out there a couple more approach which state yet there Al Al it's not like that they've won four straight. Or quarter I. I don't without it. The weaker away and look at where. We are caught up that we get it I'll experiment. I think there ought stick micro. Brackets are done later.

And I don't watch every game I can on the sweet sixteen I got the TV's going all the hit the DV RB watch a mall I love college hoops is Tommy here. And I love what's coming up with a sweet sixteen we spent a good hour on that. I don't get to national story we've been talking about I think we've owned that story here. In this time slot talking about NBA arrest and Howard affects the warriors. Going forward. And it's important he really is important to the integrity of the game the future of the game and how are you the fans or treated. Warrior fans are treated pretty good because your product. Is better than everybody else's product but it want to while what did it step outside the warriors bubble and imagine what it's like to be a fan in Portland. Or a fan in Orlando. Or fan and a different market that don't have four all stars every night live or on television. It hurts those other fans our one brought to you by Friedman's appliance.
