Marcus Thompson ready to join us here market's good to have Dion saw you over at practice today but let loose basketball team whatever was hanging over them. A couple weeks ago it seems like that storm is kind of blown out of town don't you think. They had than optional. To stop curtain kind of ranks yeah it's. In. Paula stalker with very mind. Women were going through it he's like ours they want everybody. It is who would everybody be. And then of course now Atlantic yet so you. They knew this would happen they do lately it's Brett. Snap out of it returned to be in the warriors. And out agent negative you know they make everybody else looked like eating its war. Being worried the first. Yeah there's a lot of hot takes out there that are being last dad at this point in time. Omelets in that. The basketball team. That was out Kevin Durant is playing some of the best defensive basketball they've played all year last handful of games they're they're holding teams under a hundred points the shooting percentages are in the mid thirty's for their opponent. If you're doing all that without the rant. When you get him back and by the way it really looks like they're gonna get him back he was moving around look good today I thought totally unencumbered by the worries of you know a knee injury at least that's the way it looked to me. That this team is is I think going to be. At the right place at the right time when the playoffs start what might throw them off the timetable. Maybe lacquered a physical type of team that knows how to close now. You know I don't I don't know because. Like like he's in the what they're doing that other plane without Kevin Berry. As you edit outside players who's due diligence better. And they don't even have to play their best to win most nights. That best. That's kind of that's the part that's probably why everybody freaked out. When they removed because they look normal they look like a regular team that actually had to lose street. But the reality is they're just so it's better than everybody else could be if BA super top the now that maybe maybe they combine or ruffled my. They get a spurt for a series would be in order to meet that life has nothing to lose. You know. What are would have would have you know bill making the playoffs. Is there every day. And they've got to summarize that county maybe they play the series of their lives that would this year or let it all is there aren't as planned. Are just built the by the way. He hit all the bigots here and don't. Like no nobody even cautious about that the Utah players that are right. It will not happen and you kind of lose respect him you know I roll lately daily immigrant eat a lot that I would pave the way it did that down. He gets about it he nobody liked you know like outlook that. 300 million dollar in the right here. And he by the ran well. So so right I didn't see him running up and down the court obviously we're not privy to open practice. But at the end he looked like he was cool and down. Like everyone else who just gone through practice and I'm not here reporting Kevin Durant practiced right state warriors today. Like. I'm telling you man and I think they're kind of Okie dope in the severity of this just a little bit I'm not saying it wasn't a grade two. Might have been a great wanna hire. You know the warriors have a history is articulate. Remember back up shall you do swing and your bogey and at first the injury. And they say that we Mecca desert La that forever city. Leaked out that he had micro fractures there in that regard too well all right you know not ever since they have a bit differently. Cost is about injury. And they low ball everything so they think that might going to be back. In six weeks they're gonna say like basset Ali do Republican base like it they like you afford to be all while he's back earlier. There for him to be badly and not again as the course of the well I think the law because that's their their history answered it. Everybody's. Well that's. Oh all not a single team in America that idea yeah his recoveries behind schedule thanks for. Its content but market stops in here. A 957. Game I know you got your book coming out April 11 about staff. Number one where's my autographed copy so we can help you promote it number two. It's nugget did you buried somewhere in the area is there a big reveal a bomb to be dropped anywhere in this book that you'd like to totally giveaway to our audience right now. One did you do not give an autographed copy it here. This first two and there's only going to be a diatribe about your great if so it's gonna be greater than. And our prayers and it's going to be and Scalia. Four page letter. But they're. Sober. Dude there are several targets in the air. And one of them I don't know full regalia at length yesterday. It has a lot to do that a lot of people say that Kerry in the NBA. Step Currie is heated. In the NBA all. All of mayor. Yes people people in the NBA circles especially former players. Beattie curve towards pages bill lot like something about it rose in the wrong. If you're watching a telecast UT last. Oklahoma City they put up this. This this picture is graphic all the public art for the game let's early retirees now law and had the ball revert later only. At the ball who accused our franchise leader knows it's best. Keep your mind on all those public art only wanted. Has won a championship. All the team built around him they deserved to lose. They don't want him on that level. And I explain why the book. Interest interest and looking forward to an explanation man Marcus Thompson always good to have beyond we could have a devastating day of radio come Monday if the NFL owners vote the raiders. To Las Vegas all indications are that's gonna happen. If there is a reason it doesn't happen it'll be because why. Because they don't want market owner operators they want the body. With deeper pockets in the air force such a big market in a fatal boat there. That means they want him out because they're leaving it with no other option but to sell the team or give open views stake to Somalia would be money. So they have to vote now like I that the NFL has bulked it's time for him to go. And that I. Indicate. Even if stable. But that's part they've it is Las Vegas to get a big pocket ordered the company would have been even though. The. It is so I just don't see the NFL expanding in the next. He died and I don't know. We're not pleased France oh the leak job broke the the 48 market to the number side. Right which by the way they're basically agreeing to do that they're leaving five for forty something which is. That to explain that to me somehow some way Marcus thanks as always man good to talk to you was CU laughs Friday in oracle tomorrow night. Her there as Marcus Thompson brightened a Leah for Paige love letters.
