  • mark.

  • Thanks.

  • As always.

  • What do we know about Yanis?

  • As of right now off suit?

  • Yeah, I think it's gonna be a game time decision.

  • Um, you know, when I think about him, um, I think about last year and he had the the injury situation, and I just hope that, you know, he's able to try.

  • I'm sure there's some motivation from last year, not toe get out at this time.

  • But then when you really, really think about it, is it worth it?

  • Um, but many of you greeny we're old school dudes, right?

  • Like, I think about Isaiah Thomas on one leg, you know, to be I think of him making the shots and him willing him to victory.

  • And also, we had to give respect Thio.

  • Chris Middleton.

  • Um I kind of like, saw him, you know, just a quiet all stars.

  • He really that good of a player?

  • Well, last game, the way he played.

  • Now he's clearly a superstar in this league and kind of saw that he's been, you know, giving it up to you honest and let him do his thing.

  • But if Chris Middleton could do what he did last game.

  • Regardless, what happens with the honest um, I see him, you know?

  • Still making the Bucks a factor against Miami Chris Middleton, with 36 points, a career playoff high Sunday in a game in which they lost you honest early in the second quarter.

  • Now, for those who don't know, what Mark is talking about is a game that Isaiah one of the most famous games ever.

  • Isaiah Thomas.

  • Game six of the 1988 NBA Finals on one leg but single handedly kept his team in a game against the Lakers that they would ultimately lose.

  • And then they lost the Siris in seven.

  • But Isaiah, if he didn't already respect the heck out of him, You certainly did.

  • After that.

  • We brought that up on TV this morning, Mark.

  • But then, um Stephen a brought up.

  • Was it Stephen Air?

  • Richard.

  • I can't remember now.

  • Someone are then brought up.

  • Grant Hill actually, was Steve.

  • It was Stephen a who brought up Grant Hill and said Grant Hill, once upon a time had an ankle, and he insisted on playing on it in the playoffs, and he was basically never the same again.

  • Is that something you would be concerned about.

  • Here is the thing I would say about that.

  • This is what, all due respect to my my brother Stephen A um yeah, the injury was tough, but if you go ask me hell about it.

  • He blames the doctor for having surgery that he didn't need.

  • So whoever had, you know, the doctor, that he's lucky right now that Grant Hill didn't to him back then because he found out later that that surgery was unnecessary and risk to the got him where he needed to be.

  • So, yes, that was an injury injury that led to a surgery.

  • But it was a surgery that didn't need to happen.

  • And if that surgery didn't happen, maybe we're not even mentioning this.

  • Fair enough.

  • Let's not even sidetrack ourselves with that.

  • Let's get to the really important things, which is, You know how this works.

  • You're in N b a insider.

  • And if the bucks lose tonight, you know that every talk show in America will be calling you tomorrow to ask you the question.

  • Mark Spears.

  • What is Yannis future now that the Bucks have had a second consecutive disappointing ending in the playoffs.

  • Well, you know what?

  • I was on the radio back home in the bay this morning, and they're like talking about him being in the Warriors uniforms.

  • Then you hear the people in Toronto talk about Toronto uniforms, you know, But I kind of think it's like a situation, or it's tough, like when K d was with Okay, See, Durant was with O K.

  • C.

  • Like you got exhaust everything, man.

  • I wouldn't trade him.

  • Um, I would bring him in.

  • And to me, I think last read or the ownership of the bucks, you need to bring him in privately and say, Okay, what do we need to do to make you happy?

  • What do you want to be here?

  • Like I asked him really questions asked Cem honest questions some face to face questions and see what he says.

  • And to me, he's a Nikon, you know, like whatever you need to do to make him happy.

  • You do.

  • I'm s o I.

  • If I'm the bucks, I'm not giving him up to nobody, right?

  • And then the question becomes, Can he recruit another player?

  • It was Chris Middleton again.

  • He had a very good game.

  • on Sunday.

  • But for whatever reason, they're not able to get over the hump as they're currently constituted.

  • And in their rear view mirror.

  • Coming from coming on a million miles an hour from Brooklyn are Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

  • So it's not getting any easier in the Eastern Conference.

  • So can they go out and get him somebody?

  • And if so, who is that?

  • Somebody?

  • Yeah, you know what?

  • It's, um I don't know that they need another superstar.

  • I think they just need more complimentary players.

  • And also, I think they need to find to him what he does like.

  • One thing I noticed, you know, this past game that brought a more success was starting off in the post.

  • Same with Brook Lopez like it's kind of drives me nuts.

  • How many players are, like, just motivated to shoot threes now, like you're 7 ft tall?

  • Go as my coach used to tell me back today.

  • Boy.

  • Big boy, Take your button.

  • The postman.

  • What you doing out here?

  • I would like to see him doom or that until he becomes more confident in the three point shot that this is not a shot right now.

  • But when he's in the post like, I think the way Yanis could could be better for the team is to make others better and perhaps doing it through the post with all the shooters that he has, um, could be the way to do it.

  • But, I mean, in terms of free agents, you know, maybe maybe Mike Mike Conley, a Goran Dragic like a you know, ah, veteran point guard added to this team, uh, could help some more.

  • I know they got less than one.

  • I know they got George Hill, but I don't know.

  • Joe Harris is unrestricted.

  • It doesn't hurt that another shooter, but I don't know that they need another superstar.

  • I just think they just need more talent to go with them.

  • We'll see.

  • Maybe tonight they prolong the season, with or without.

  • Thank you for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
