  • And now for more on the Eastern Conference, we welcome in Cassidy, Hubbarth, Cassidy Thanks so much for joining us now.

  • The last time that you joined us, we talked about the Nets.

  • We weren't sure how this whole dynamic was going to work out with the superstars and what it was going to play out.

  • They may be the best team right now in the NBA.

  • What do you think about how things have played out for them?

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, in my surprise that, um, two future Hall of Famers who you could argue of two of the best magicians with the basketball in the game are winning games even without their best player and Kevin Durant.

  • No, I'm not surprised at all.

  • Um, I'm also not surprised by things hardens playmaking.

  • Anyone who is, I think hasn't been watching game pardon or did not watch any Rockets games because this is someone who has made a name for himself recently as being a very, very skilled pastor.

  • And look, he's now wrapped up what six triple doubles as a net, And I think that now put some second all time in its history.

  • What's going on?

  • Net It's behind Jake.

  • I don't even know how many in 56.

  • But really, um, you know he's already second.

  • So look, James Harden is playing fantastic.

  • And the fact that him and Kyrie have figured out who's the playmaker basically switching positions, I think, is helping this team really organized themselves.

  • They've also started to give a care on defense because I think they heard all the critics.

  • DeAndre Jordan doesn't look like the shell of himself.

  • He's starting to come alive, which is, you know, important.

  • So, you know, Yeah, they look great.

  • But I also like how the Sixers are looking as well, so it's very top heavy in the East.

  • It's interesting Kessie, when you talk about two stars playing well, coming together, which now leads me to the Celtics.

  • As I had this amazingly hot take yesterday that got everyone up in arms, that Brad Stevens should be on the hot seat.

  • Why does he, from the national media always get a pass?

  • Because, you know, he's he's had this, um, boy wonder reputation.

  • And, you know, I think he earned it early on.

  • He got a team to overachieve, but right now, look, Brad Stevens said.

  • This team post game is playing unconfident and unsure, basically listed every type of ever play in what they need to do better.

  • And then we told them that these next four games are going to be the most important four games of their whole season, and it will tell them a lot about how far they can go.

  • And they got the Pacers a newly resurgent Wizards coming up the Clippers and Raptors.

  • That's a really tough stretch, but you can point at the confidence, the trust you can point at not having Marcus Smart Kemba still working his way back from injury.

  • But maybe the pointing of the finger really needs to go way upwards, because what we've really seen is that they're missing Gordon Hayward, who easily is their best passer who could guard opposing fours.

  • Um, but in the last three years, they've lost Hayward, Horford, Kyrie, Marcus Morris for nothing in return, and this is a team that has two great players, a few good players.

  • As of right now, a couple guys really who aren't cutting it.

  • So for the next four games they may be big, but this this year is really a bigger condemnation on Danny into your point to Brad to see if this team is starting to, you know, tune him out.

  • Now that we've gotten Taylor's home arisen out of the way, let's lean into yours, Cassidy.

  • Go ahead, dust off the but the Bulls gig gets Bread eleven's out and help me cape for Zach Lavine.

  • Yeah, I mean, I've been watching exactly the All Star Zach Lavine All star like louder.

  • I mean, speaking of the Celtics, the Bulls just took over that six spot keys.

  • Don't look at their record.

  • There's still 500 but they are in the sixth spot.

  • Least, uh, this guy is almost averaging or part of the 50 40 90 club just just falling short on the free throws.

  • But again, if if you're still stuck on Zach, Lavine can't play defense.

  • Zach Lavine isn't a good shooter.

  • Look at his efficiency.

  • Watch them both games.

  • He has improved his off ball defense.

  • He's been a solid on ball defender and just it offensively.

  • What he's doing, shooting at a 52% clip.

  • Just give this dude his respect.

  • Please stop putting him in trade rumors like Max this guy out and start to build what I let me put my Let me take my reporter cap off where I'm supposed to be neutral.

  • Let me go back to 12 year old cast.

  • Lean in.

  • And can the Bulls be like a destination?

  • Last time I checked?

  • Chicago is an amazing city.

  • It has been.

  • It's been in a relevant basketball organization for since since, really, since Zack was traded away or traded to the Bulls and Jimmy left.

  • So it's just been, you know, collecting dust.

  • And can we get some attention?

  • Can the Bulls start to get some momentum here?

  • That's all I'm saying.

  • Yeah, we'll wait a little bit longer for that.

  • Cassidy.

  • I want to switch gears to the NBA All Star Game.

  • Zion Williamson is going to make his first appearance, but yesterday he was asked about the slam dunk contest.

  • Have them listen, you know what?

  • I don't even know.

  • Who knows?

  • That's all I can say.

  • Who knows?

  • I'm like you.

  • Just you never know.

  • But who knows?

  • So you're saying there's a chance?

  • Did I nail it?

  • Trusted You didn't build it.

  • Cassidy.

  • If you could pick one person in the slam dunk contest.

  • Who would it be right now?

  • Dumb and dumber?

  • LeBron James still.

  • But it's not going to happen.

  • Yes, yes.

  • What you're telling me there's someone else that you want to see in the slam dunk competition other than the greatest player in the NBA?

  • Yeah, I think.

  • Sci I think Zion's got my attention.

  • Zion's got my attention because that hoop may need to go to 14 ft years and years for him.

  • I got some years and years for him now.

  • This is unrealistic conversation that I'm having right now saying LeBron James.

  • But my point is, if you're asking me my all time list like me and I still want, I want him to check that box off, I want to see what he could do.

  • Have you seen?

  • He's 36 he's still probably has more force than Zion does when he attacks the rim.

  • Um, he's not gonna do it because, you know, he he's very tired right now, and anyways, it's not even point to talk about if he's gonna do or not.

  • But all of them are gonna be there, like just a little insight into what happens he's usually at his clutch dinner on Saturday nights.

  • He never attends the slam dunk competition.

  • This would be halftime of the game.

  • This this slam dunk competition should be all of the starters.

  • It should be the East starters and the West starters Slam dunk competition.

  • This is your half time like you're never gonna have this, man.

  • I have a big time stars after Sam done competition.

  • I'm saying that Look, you sound like Paul George right now.

  • But Cassidy, however, that we appreciate you so much.

  • And also Taylor, I have to tell you, our producer, Greg and I actually had to look up because everyone thinks so.

  • You're saying there's a chance he actually says.

  • So you're telling me there's a chance?

  • Remember that we couldn't believe it, but it was a nice little clip to go back and watch them.

  • And I've been saying, Yeah, I've been saying what Taylor's been saying.

  • I think everyone does guilty.

  • Cassidy.

  • We appreciate you so much.

  • We will see you soon.

  • Of course, guys, Thanks for having me.

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

And now for more on the Eastern Conference, we welcome in Cassidy, Hubbarth, Cassidy Thanks so much for joining us now.
