  • so perk.

  • We look at the big three for the Nets.

  • I just talked about what happened with them defensively.

  • Now, offensively, they combined for 96 points.

  • Were you encouraged or discouraged from what you saw from the Nets?

  • Big Three Perk.

  • Well, I was discouraged, Rachel.

  • And look, you remember on social Media when James Harden gave little baby Ah, 100 100 buns.

  • Well, guess what, Colin Sex and gave them 4200 buns last night and everybody else in the league been giving them honey buns.

  • Listen offensively, they're figure things out.

  • Steve Nash and Mike D'Antoni, their their offensive minded coaches.

  • I get that.

  • But defensively, they have zero excuses.

  • This is not a young ball club.

  • This is a veteran team.

  • You got to champions on the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

  • So with that being said, these guys should know how to come together collectively and figure things out.

  • It's all about effort.

  • It's not about schemes.

  • And last night, what I was watching was they were just saying, You know what?

  • We're gonna outscore you.

  • That's how we're gonna beat you and Rachel, You and Zach both note that in order to win the championship, you have to be at the top of the charts on the defensive end.

  • Even when the Golden State Warriors was making their runs, yes, they were great offensively, But guess what?

  • They were top five and every defensive category in the N B.

  • A defense wins championships, and that's what the Nets are trying to do.

  • And right now, they're not showcasing that well.

  • The Nets learned an important lesson last night that the rest of the league should take note of.

  • You think you're just gonna walk into sex land with all your star players in your new Big Three and walk out a sex land with the W?

  • You don't walk in and walk out of sex land unscathed.

  • Let's put it that way.

  • As far as the Nets, I'm neither encouraged or discouraged.

  • I'm just courage.

  • This is exactly what we should have expected.

  • They're going to be one of the greatest offensive teams in the history of the NBA, and defensively, they're gonna have a long way to go.

  • It's the first game everybody chill.

  • Let's see what kind of defense that could build.

  • But perk is right.

  • I don't care how good they are offensively.

  • I mean, I care, but they're gonna be really good.

  • You need to at least approach the top 10 in defense.

  • If you wanna win the championship, you got to be 12, 13, 10.

  • You can't win the championship with an awful defense.

  • I don't care how good your offenses, so they've got a long way to go in that regard.

  • But we knew that the one thing I am a little alarmed about and I'll still defer to the Nets sports science team and all that.

  • I'm shocked at how many minutes Kevin Durant is playing coming off an Achilles stare.

  • Now, maybe his layoff was so long that this is not apples to oranges with other Achille stairs.

  • But 50 minutes, he's up over 35 per game.

  • They're really pushing him hard.

  • And I'm actually a little surprised by that.

  • Yeah, it's tough to because we see those compensation injuries sometime.

  • I'm not a doctor, as we always say here, but I'm watching John Wall be out for a spell here now, right with the knee injury.

  • And you wonder if that's anything to do with compensating for recovering from the Achilles.

  • We don't know with Kevin Durant How much that comes into play.

  • Zach.

  • I want to just give you, like, 20 seconds on national TV.

  • What appeal would you like to make to the Cleveland Cavaliers about your favorite nickname?

  • I mean, it's just It's natural.

  • It's right there.

  • It's There's nothing obscene about it.

  • It's Collin Sexton and Darius Garland.

  • I'm told they don't really like it.

  • Which kind of disappoints me.

  • It's catchy.

  • The Cavs have Thio.

  • No one's been watching Cleveland since LeBron left.

  • We've got to give people a reason to watch.
