  • We have a lot to talk about today.

  • Big trade going down last night.

  • What's your reaction to that?

  • I saw that.

  • I think I think it's a good move.

  • I think now we know we're having rushed there.

  • They got a chance to somewhat compete with the rest of the league eso the dancing to figure out how I was gonna work.

  • But, um, So you figured out?

  • Sure, he will.

  • They fish here.

  • He will, huh?

  • Yeah, I think so.

  • I think so.

  • This is gonna be tough to handle, but I think you got a chance to start when you when you play.

  • For D'Antoni, it was the work of art.

  • It was pick and roll spacing.

  • Yeah.

  • Would pick the pick the league apart.

  • They got the isolation basketball in Houston last year.

  • You think he can get back to that flow that you had gone with Steve Nash?

  • What do you see D'Antoni getting into?

  • I think I think what's gonna happen is that, you know that both gotta figure out a way to play together.

  • They both the isil players and they both demand the ball is on the one ball on the basketball court.

  • If D'Antoni could figure out how to get those guys still big, great and also win.

  • It's a tough job on his hands, but I'm sure you figured out.

  • Is that on the players there?

  • Is it on D'Antoni?

  • So dead Tony and also the players the players got accept the change of roles?

  • Some somebody, some money.

  • Take less shots or not, but depend on the situation.

  • You gotta You gotta sacrifice the times.

  • But, Mari, let's say I put you as head coach of the Houston Rockets, all right?

  • And I know you're in the Big Three for now in the N B A.

  • Perhaps tomorrow.

  • But you're the coach for a moment.

  • Every Luddy likes the talent accumulation.

  • I mean, they're both massively talented and great players individuals, but we got to make it work together.

  • And as you point out, the point I've been trying to make today is they're virtually similar.

  • I so high usage, Dr Players.

  • Russ doesn't shoot well, so you can imagine a situation where James has the ball the entire time and Russ has two playoff.

  • I'm just trying to figure out as you're standing there, talking to Russ and James Harden trying to convince them of certain roles.

  • What are the rules?

  • You're convincing them off.

  • We know the kid basketballs, ball movement.

  • If you can figure out a way to allow James and still be great and allow them to move the ball properly, then you have the best case scenario and it won't be easy.

  • You gotta convince these guys to play off the ball.

  • Sometimes of rust wanted to throw the ball.

  • James play off the ball and vice versa.

  • And so once you figure out a managed flow offensively with both of those guys and I think it will work, who closes out for big shot final final minute last possession?

  • Who takes rust?

  • Or James?

  • Who did you get a ball to?

  • A beer, bro?

  • Yeah, no question.

  • No question.

  • You act like Russ can't hit a big shot.

  • Now, come on, now, I know you can.

  • You can, but But James is obviously one of the best isil players.

  • We've probably ever seen the game of basketball, and this side is pure.

  • You know, he's a high offenses our shooter, and so he has a chance to definitely be one of the all time greats and close the game out.

  • I'm giving a ball to James for sure.

  • All right, question for you and Mari.

  • So you're in the big three right now.

  • On Monday, you hold workouts for 15 n b A teams.

  • So why should the teams give you a shot this season?

  • Well, I've been standing ST Paul for the past three years, actually, since I played in Miami, went overseas and play professional basketball, trained every summer, trained with Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden.

  • I see these guys, all someone trained with these guys, high level basketball, and I go right into a season playing professional basketball overseas.

  • You know, it's a big leagues over the guys, make good money is in very serious game when you play over in Europe.

  • So I've been standing shape all those all those years, and I feel great.

  • Now what?

  • Give me a team that you think, and you can't give me 30 teams Ugo to a team that could really benefit from what you would bring them right now.

  • I mean, you have you have guys, the teams that I have a lot of young players that are, you know, the next wave of greatness.

  • And I think having young vet veteran guys on the team that could help them mold and to become professionals at a high level will be beneficial.

  • I can't really point to one or two teams at the moment, but there are teams that can use that type of veteran leadership for sure.

  • So you know your mind said is I'm gonna be a role player of the same star.

  • Sounds like whatever is needed.

  • Whatever's needed.

  • Been a role player 9th 10th guy on the on the squad, helping guys to training and just trained those guys before practice or whatever.

  • Whatever the case may be on, that guy's so has it.

  • I will say this back to you playing, you know, could we played together overseas, played against each other Big, big three last two years.

  • But physically, bro like you look better than almost when you're collect.

  • You look great.

  • Not like is it just playing against these guys day today?

  • What's the routine like?

  • Would have you done like what has changed?

  • Brokers you?

  • I mean, you ready?

  • You know what I actually took?

  • It took a note of a good friend of mine who played doing sports MBA football, major league baseball player and also NFL football player.

  • And he said, one thing you gotta do study said, Get down to your lowest way possible and be a strong positive and be to that in consideration.

  • I got down to 35 hit the way.

  • It's extremely strong and put a nice regimen of training and recovered together.

  • And I put least six figures every summer into training and recovery.

  • And so now my body feels amazing s so I feel like why not take the chance of trying to make it back to the NBA and see what I can do from there?
