Mike Montgomery you know you love them college basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal you can look at some of the pac twelve network he's joining Jolo Indians on 95 points in the game coach Mike every good morning how aria. We're doing very well we got a lot to touch on because basketball's been making headlines. All around the world how to get your opinion on how the league and the players can come together to potentially resolve this rest conundrum. LeBron disbursed the war is now all making headlines as they followed the data to try to maintain their players' health for the playoff push but. Obviously we have TV money to worry about we have fans to worry about is there a way we can reach a solution here. Are you got to talk to somebody a lot smarter than me. It it's too many games it's hard out here are you slice it you got back back 82 games. An opportunity to rest between game I think it's fair that players should play games. I think it's fair that people are a really good money to watch the premiere players. And that the players are being paid enough that they should play. What would you put him in the environment that you do with all the travel. With these road trips with these back to back. It cute you know you all have no choice because at the end of the day. You try to win a world championship you're not trying to win that you debt next game. So what people are really awkward spot. There have to be let games that have to be more you have to let it out of the players at an opportunity to take care of their bodies. It's already such grind out coach when you go from late October and for the warriors in the cavs last year all the way through. Mid June would players and coaches even the against starting the season say in early October. I don't think that it necessarily wouldn't term like the time because that's what it means it's. You know it's I did today not so much to ride that I am you have an hour you don't practice. Law. Periods of time you have acting who have tried to do what the saints so you're doing it anyway and if you look at the pre season they started October. And you know your loud at that originally were out at Tuesday's practice is what you really aren't about at one day one practice contact. Widget that you two hour session in the afternoon I'm back. And shoot. Then you play game after what our practices. In an exhibition game it's not great that involved with their lips at the start earlier this (%expletive) that. Paul played that game in Denver getting done your are now all your time flying to Memphis after the game Gideon recently. And that was the next night that you get. And won't vote for it was like eight. Gains in all days I honestly. All want to know what city isn't just based on all the travel and so forth kinda watched tape and get ready so it will at all on those guys. And you're cold you want your team to perform at the highest level wanted to stay healthy and you want to be stretched for what is it fair well. Oates is it the mindset. If you are going to this knowing that you get ready go the back to backs and tart ceased tough road trips. Would behoove the coaches to say look you're the starters people give them what they want they want to see you they're paying big money. Whirling gonna pay you fifteen men yelling and play fifteen minutes. The backups now have that mindset the other Meehan I had that mindset that they're gonna play the majority of the time. T think that would solve a little these problems even if they did they gave the fans just a little bit. It would probably. Will go away the chance to see those guys that the end of it is. Wanna play a fanatic they want to play some coaches that are making decisions for what is the let's say. Your body becomes fatigued in your body. I'm sixty years of much greater chance that something bad things can happen because it's just not quite a 100% in terms of protecting itself it's certain that. That that's a reasonable thing that the line but in the other key. Leave their best players in that they're not playoff bound team and they don't need. And you're losing an actual people players and coaches what. It that are competitive. Mike Montgomery college basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal you know catch him on the back called network we joke. Low in bids on 95 points ending in coach. A fascinating article on ESPN yesterday and I'd love to get your thoughts on this. Substantially. Teams NBA teams in the eighties were winning at. At home about 67% of the time. That number is down to 57%. This season all time low so the altar of the story Tom however stroke went out talked to general managers coaches players. And what he found out was. What they're calling the unification. Of the National Basketball Association in essence. Players if they are looking for some female companionship on the road they can use social media to set that up. Rather than going out to the clubs and bars and drinking and spending all night. And as a result they can do what they wanna do in last time I get more sleep and that perform at a higher level on the road how amazing is that. Regrettable. Apple were to gain year net report. In terms all players. Who look out. It is it is a lot here and maybe players I'm not suggesting that. They're home phone and then there is City Hall with all the contacts. That yeah. In so that you make a phone call about the play it and it does get handled in the law that stress. I couldn't remember one time. Law publicity in all the journalists. We were. About. And he mentioned the fact that a lot of young players because of access. Yeah excitement has some money literally. Socialized themselves. Out of each Wednesday. They couldn't handle it is to know what to do. Very astute point. And I can remember. Quote don't you. An unnamed hotel in my. Or knock it looked out of those young ladies standing outside. It NBA. Obviously look at my body you're not in NBA. Well yeah and you know what that the wrong number. And I can Alter it there was and other abuse statement saying quote I think it was probably. But who knows so yeah. Or it would probably got animals are all right. He talked about art but I don't know it's good to burn holes. That got. A Georgia I think and credible information. And Mike Montgomery here on 95. Seven game shifting gears a little bit coach to your C zone also mind. Let's talk a little NCAA internment eat at the three pac twelve. Still alive organ Arizona UCLA. Who among them as the best chance to make it to the final four and who would be your pick. For national champion of these final sixteen welcome back to safe ground coach. Well you know I would never try to pick I would say that. I like he'll play it because their ability. To score the ball. And I think that they really have. They just are so talented and long ball is clearly the real deal. And they can Bridgeport that goes along way Arizona and really Japan. You know day horror. Hard nosed typical John Miller tightly in Oregon practical combination of all although they are very heavily. You know on gill and Brooks. In tiger Dorsey but that's okay actually very quality score pal I can back it in the good that is very veteran. With. Not pardoned pardon pardon this year you know whatever. If your guide me you know are if your guy Jordan Mackie a lot of experience. They're very talented. I think of those fourteen that you're talking West Coast. That one of them will clearly be in the final four and I couldn't judge which lost a lot that can match ups and Selig got up wrote. I mean they got if you look at Lou bludgeon them to play. A hot water wrote to the final foreign national championship. But. You know you got like Kentucky because their overall talent you've got like changed because their track record. Pop I think it. The three pac twelve schools and get that yet. That was looked at pretty good chance to have all the not patrol European. It's it's on a month you know contends bag somewhat kind of Perdue my son goes they're made them haven't debate. The way the big man you know on in the NBA the big man it's not a big man's game anymore did you look at reduced to seven footers too big guys. No one's going to be probably a lottery pick. You look it inside you talk amok and zags make that's 300 pounder some big guys. Do you think we think it's coming college it's a little different than in the pros and how good is West Virginia specs with that immediate defense how they go after impress people. Well yet big guy internment is its speed diminished it it becomes a car play. Tournament because. It gets sole physical inside that are very typical for the big people operate bailout so much more equal on. You can almost take a big guy out Purdue with two big guys obviously pose a problem but. You don't need big guy dominated inside and she liked it just don't all much in jail I'll be more physical inside there. You know that's why did you Q it is really good. And you know he's a big physical for Purdue for example salt argues that it got a chance but. You don't what is that second part of your question I got kind of urged all our. Best Virginia and how how how. Defense can get actor dead meat deepest impression. Good is it. Well there and marketer turned ankle or consistently. Although toward that he's not a great hand. Critique that with the all. And I want I. Actually had yeah its radio. Against Kansas they added sixteen points fourteen point these two under three minutes to coordinate law that game. And then about what would you yeah which is typical ball up is they are far. I mean physically tough and they do solve a lot there's a lot of old grab what you are being. And you know hard all that stuff. And so partly. In their talented. But maybe not quite as talented offensively is on the other key it will cause a problem because there's so I'll play. What. You know I don't know this is the media and with the pressure that term insect. As Montgomery final question for you regarding the warriors the news came out yesterday that team is hopeful Kevin Durant will be back for the end the regular season. How do you what you do you go about integrating some only to ramp back into the lineup at the beginning of the year they had learned to play together. Penny goes down with the injury to have to learn how to play without him once you get to the end of the season in the first round of the playoffs could be a match up with Denver do you limit the minutes what's the best way to bring him back so that there are any chemistry issues. I think in the chemistry issues because that he gets along so well Q and where and I think they'll welcome him back eight. They put some other starting lineup together and it sort of eliminated that position on the floor at age scoring position valued at Durant back in the mix and it becomes a scoring position one more option. I think it will be fairly smooth transition. And I also think that you should probably bring back a little bit as hard. You know something light that you think your you think your way out figures he'll are you well but the intensity. I'll play in the game is different than anything you can simulate. So got to bring him back a few minutes and it's our little bit here little bit there started to gain in warmed up and bring it in slowly but. Because of their style plays kind of re open. I stop I'll use it to matter dragged in comfortable I don't think can you be a problem all right that she just got app that ball. I think everybody goes back to their regional role and just gives one more guy. They can score the ball one more matchup nightmare for the people playing. That it. I detect a organization so saw potential growth was steep current handles everything I mean yeah same questions all current all over again and that loses cool always very Asian whatever but he. Only problem really don't I just think that organizations. Also workers. College basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal. You know Ketchum of the pac twelve network Mike Montgomery would Jolo Indians. On 95 point seven in coach thank you so much for your time it's always a pleasure getting to catch up hopefully we can do it against him. I ultimately be in the community force there that original court. Golden you're absolutely golden.
