  • It's crunch time.

  • I mean is supposed to be Kendrick Perkins.

  • Demand you go back to Kendrick Perkins.

  • Yesterday, there was a pro day for Georgia's Anthony Edwards.

  • Kentucky's Tyreese Maxie Paul, Do you want to see more of these NFL style pro days in the N B A.

  • In the future?

  • No rapes.

  • I'm not too sold on these pro days because I mean just to watch a player.

  • Look at this.

  • He's handling the ball, is passing the back.

  • He's taking spot, no defense around.

  • I can't measure a players heart.

  • His work.

  • I think I can't.

  • I need to see him against competition.

  • I mean, this is all good for the This is all good for Instagram.

  • And, you know, we're just, you know, measuring the guys bird.

  • But this really doesn't tell the tape of a guy who can play.

  • I mean, me.

  • I probably would have failed Pro Day could, but they couldn't measure my heart in my will.

  • Things work out for you.

  • And it worked out.

  • I'm just saying I would say that Pro Day in some ways was just an advertisement for clutch, right?

  • It was a recruiting tool for future guys coming out of college.

  • Come in tow, LeBron.

  • And you know what?

  • You have LeBron and a d sitting there courtside.

  • He was on ESPN two.

  • I mean, that's what it felt like to be more than that Z really what it is, it's to make clutch look good.

  • And it's also for the clients that look good.

  • You know, for us is teams We always put guys in positions where they didn't feel comfortable because we wanted to see how you reacted to the adversity.

  • That's not adversity.

  • That's just making a kid feel good and have TV cameras and all that.

  • I'm gonna make you uncomfortable and say you should talk in your okay.

  • You're supposed to be okay, Rachel.

  • The Mavericks making trade noise.

  • According to the Dallas Morning News, the Mavs wanna move up in the lottery and everybody except Luca enforcing us are available.

  • They have picks 18 and 31.

  • So Kendrick Perkins, amine el Hassen, use your front office brain here.

  • Does Dallas have the right idea in this draft of all draft?

  • Let me tell you something, Rachel.

  • The Dallas Mavericks have an idea of who they want in the draft and in this draft where it's so flat prospects after about five through, about 15 are the same guy.

  • So you view the Dallas Mavericks and you know who you want.

  • Hell, yeah, you go out and get him, E.

  • I don't know.

  • I think they need a veteran player, you know, to enhance this roster.

  • But But the thing is to try to acquire assets and the more assets you get later down the road, you can choir that player that you desperately need to make a championship run.

  • Here's what I know they want Cap room.

  • Not for this season, but next offseason.

  • I wonder why.

  • All right, our draft expert, Jonathan Davone, reporting that the Wolves met with Lemelle a ball earlier this week.

  • Paul, is it a big deal to you?

  • Do you like the potential fit of Lamela ball in Minnesota?

  • Um, I'm not so sure they got D'Angelo.

  • Russell, who needs the ball?

  • Carl's Towns needs the ball.

  • I don't know if I like another guy that needs the ball in his hand, and he's shown some greatness and the places he played, but I'm not sure this is the pick for them.

  • Listen, Rachel If you're the the Minnesota Timberwolves, you got the opportunity to get a free look at these prospects.

  • You do it.

  • Anyone who's saying by the way, I heard rumors about him not interviewing.

  • Well, if you if you believe that, then I got a bridge to sell You.

  • Look, if you knew better, you do better on there.

  • You gonna come back fast?

  • Please?

  • You, Burke, This is not going well.

  • The Jumper Like to what?

  • You're happy.

  • 20 fourth birthday to Devin Booker.

  • Paul said before the break.

  • He's only 24.

  • Yes, he's only 24 led the Suns to an improbable eight and record.

  • During the restart, he averaged over 30 a game.

  • In that stretch, he was second in M v P.

  • Voting to Dame Willard in the bubbles for the bubble.

  • M v p Such a young age.

  • The best may be yet to come.

  • So what do you think the ceiling is for books, Rachel, I think that he could be the best shooting guard in the MBA and on the M V P ballad within the next three years.

  • Next three years?

  • Yeah, I said what I said, Rachel, um, I think he could be the best player on a championship team.

  • Ugo, That's always say, You need that swing guy who could do multiple things, and he's shown a lot over the last couple of years, and in this bubble, his maturity is all around.

  • Offensive game needs to get better on defense, but he could be the best player on a championship team.

  • I believe.

  • Where do you feel the sons are right now?

  • I mean, because obviously those seating games they looked, they look great.

  • I'm gonna do this in my voice because I'm tired of doing the pro boys.

  • This is the thing about teams like the sun's when, when you are trying to be great, that's not something that Okay, we got it.

  • We went on the bubble.

  • Now everything's here on after.

  • You gotta do it every single day, and this organization has shown an inability off doing things like that every single day.

  • So the one thing they gotta watch out for is recidivism.

  • Going back to your always on and it's really easy.

  • If the season doesn't start the way you like it the way it will ended to kind of everybody, let go of the rope.

  • So before we say, what can the Sun's B I just want to see them try and continue the good habits that Monty Williams got him working on last season.

  • Paul, Do you see them as an over 500 team?

  • Is a playoff team making into that lower seasoning in the East in the West There hard for me to figure out cause they start off the season, so we usually just like, Oh, they're gonna be in the playoffs.

  • Then they just tanked, and then they come to the bubble and they look like a playoff team.

  • You know, they've got to find some consistency within this group, and I think with some of the veterans they have, they found it.

  • I think they could be a playoff team next year.

  • Now you remember Jason Tatum said it was after he made the All Star game last year.

  • Just, like, completely changed his mindset, thought of himself differently.

  • It wasn't worried about himself in the same way anymore and we saw his play just take off.

  • Do you think book, having made the All Star team is going to influence him the same way What kind of confidence did it give you?

  • Is a player.

  • It gave me tremendous confidence.

  • It made me feel like, you know, I belonged with these guys.

  • When I sit in that locker room and I'm sitting next to LeBron Wade, I felt like I belonged.

  • Now it's not.

  • It's like, all right, it's time for me to go show it.

  • You know, he had that opportunity to this year.

  • He feels like he belongs.

  • Now it's time to take his team to the next level, not only as an individual.

  • He took his game to the next level.

  • It's time to take his team to the next level.

  • Now, now, I think, for book.

  • He's thought of himself as an All Star several seasons before this one s Oh, this wasn't like, Uh oh wow!

  • I finally made it.

  • It's one of those about time eso, and that's one of things I love about him.

  • He's got high aspiration in high ambitions for himself.

  • Devin Booker, the only MBA player to be in the All Star game, the MBA Bubble and Kardashian Island.

  • All three.

  • He got the trifecta this year, so you know better.

  • You do better he wins.

  • There you go.

  • Oh, this just in at the buzzer.

  • Very sad about this.

  • Our graphics.

  • Kate is leaving us.

  • I know Gina.

  • Gina as well.

  • Um, she is not going too far.

  • She will be joining the L A.

  • Clippers next week.

  • She is responsible for those.

  • She is brilliant.

  • She's funny.

  • She has been with us since 2017.

  • A vital part of our staff.

  • I love seeing all these moments over the She's got great photo face.
