  • We saw earlier you were fiddling with that.

  • Where did you wind up putting the microphone on the Christmas one Z?

  • Yeah, so I just not realize something.

  • When I was preparing to do the show trying to be a highly trained professional.

  • It's really tough to place a mic on a one Z, you know?

  • So I had to kind of close the camera and kind of take it up through the ankle greeny, you know, kind of like I had to take it up through here.

  • You know, it was crazy, but I even got the We got the shoes and everything, man.

  • I'm in the Christmas spirit for sure.

  • You know, I got every got a pedicure yesterday.

  • Look at this like a baby's bottom.

  • Look at this.

  • But a holiday.

  • That is not the way America expected to wake up on Christmas Day with a good look at a very handsome man.

  • Okay, Get get up.

  • Lets go through today's games in the order, they will be played and you tell us.

  • What gift to the N ba has given us in each of these.

  • And let's start with the pelicans and the heat.

  • What is the Christmas gift that we will receive from that game today?

  • Thank you, Commissioner Silver for delivering a champion in the bubble last year, getting us n ba basketball and the first game I'm looking forward to Zion Williamson.

  • Remember this freak athlete that we were talking about it?

  • Duke University greenie got to the league, dealt with some injuries, have that's, um, minutes restrictions.

  • However, he was a point a minute.

  • This dude average around 25 points.

  • He's gonna be outstanding.

  • Understand?

  • Van Gundy running alongside his All star partner from last year, Brandon Ingram.

  • I'm gonna ask you one question per each one of these.

  • And my question for you is this.

  • If Zion is healthy all year and is not on a minutes restriction when we get to the end of the season, will he be in the MVP conversation?

  • Will he be that good?

  • Not in the MVP conversation.

  • I'm gonna tell you the conversation.

  • He will be in the the playoff play in conversation.

  • You know those final 14 to get a chance to play for those last two spots.

  • He'll be in that conversation.

  • Okay, fair enough.

  • Next game is Warriors Bucks.

  • What is the Christmas gift you were looking for in that game?

  • So starting a day greeny.

  • I want to see Steph Curry become that guy that took the world by storm and lead these Golden State words to the playoffs without a splash.

  • Brother Clay Thompson when KD left.

  • Okay, See, Russ was able to do that.

  • Since Dave has been in Portland, he's been able to do that.

  • I anticipate Steph Curry being healthy this year and him being able to play back and an all NBA caliber level.

  • Okay, that actually answered my question on that.

  • So let me skip to the next one, which I think is the most intriguing game of the day.

  • Nets Celtics What gift are you looking for in that game?

  • Wow.

  • Dynamic duels on both sides and the level of relevancy that we now have in New York watching quality basketball in Brooklyn, led by K D.

  • Who's coming back from an Achilles injury, and Kyrie Irving, two of the best scores isolation players we have in the league.

  • So many whose so many odds so many opportunities to get these guys to make plays for their team.

  • And on the other side, a dynamic young duel in Jason Tatum, who just hit a game winning shot off the glass, and Jalen Brown, who will be all envy a defense.

  • Just look at these dynamic duels we have going in the league.

  • Boston has done a terrific job of building talent through the draft.

  • I just hope that they could get the production from the five spot with Tristan Thompson etcetera, to give these guys some balance because they're gonna be terrific on the perimeter.

  • If I told you this was a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston in Brooklyn, would you agree or disagree?

  • I wouldn't be mad at it at all.

  • Greenie.

  • Here's the thing about the East being so very wide open since LeBron left.

  • So y goes to Toronto.

  • They win the East.

  • Jimmy Butler goes to the heat, They win the East.

  • So now a couple of teams that have been left at the altar, the Sixers, the Celtics and the Bucks have been left at the altar.

  • It's up to those team to see if they could get over the top.

  • We're gonna include the Nets in that conversation, even though Kevin Durant is coming off a major Achilles injury.

  • Alright, jail in the next game, obviously a huge spotlight on the big Stars.

  • Mavericks Lakers.

  • What gift are we looking for in that game?

  • All LeBron versus Luca?

  • No, no question about it.

  • So LeBron James is still playing at an elite level.

  • The Lakers got better this offseason.

  • Anthony Davis is gonna be outstanding.

  • He's improved.

  • This three point shot you asked, shrewder.

  • You add Montrezl Harrell.

  • The Lakers are loaded.

  • They are the clear cut favorite to win it all, but Luca is outstanding.

  • Last season, Green and he took that all N B A top 10 players in the game type of leap.

  • He's gonna be flirting with 25 to 30 points.

  • Double figure dimes.

  • Yes, he's gonna have a lot of triple doubles.

  • He's a smart player, terrific passer, No crystal sports.

  • Seeing is, however, which, uh, that's going to get the Lakers clear pole position, but Luca donkeys, if you have not seen him play, he's a wizard with the basketball.

  • No question All right.

  • One more.

  • The nightcap tonight.

  • Clippers, Nuggets.

  • What are we looking for?

  • Paul?

  • George.

  • Paul George?

  • Because during this pandemic I've seen a lot of people assassinate his character and calling Pandemic P and joked that he was playoff and he wasn't getting it done on that side.

  • But on the other side, my guy, the Joker.

  • Did you see the numbers he put up in the first game?

  • Greedy 20 plus points.

  • 14, 15 rebounds and dimes.

  • The Denver Nuggets beat the Clippers last year after trailing 31 This is gonna be a great night capper tonight.

  • The Clippers and the Nuggets gonna be a terrific day of basketball.

  • And there's no better way to start it than with you, my friend.
