  • bold predictions for the second half.

  • Let's go at five.

  • Karl Anthony towns will be the next superstar to demand a trade.

  • So hear me out.

  • There's 7 to 29 right now, the worst record in the league.

  • There were bottom three last year.

  • They got the D'Angelo Russel trade thought that made him happy.

  • That hasn't been pending out.

  • They have Anthony Edwards.

  • I call him Baby Keyshawn on this show.

  • Very flamboyant, with the things he says, he's played somewhat decently this season.

  • But look, Karl Anthony, Towns, you know, they're talking about getting potentially Jonathan Collins there from the Atlanta Hawks.

  • Not sure that's gonna pan out, but trust and believe with With the way the Knicks are playing, he's from the tri state area.

  • I'm not saying his name is involved with the Knicks, but Karl Anthony Towns is a guy that does not want to be at the bottom of the league, and people are going to start to wonder.

  • What team does he fit into next?

  • He will be the next hot name you will hear on that circuit next up at four.

  • All right, look, the playing tournaments gonna be one of the highest things we're going to talk about.

  • And I know Steve Kerr came out and said this.

  • He's like, Hey, he loves to play in tournament As long as the Warriors are in it, well, the Warriors are going to be in the playing tournament.

  • Think about this in the West right now for the playing tournament.

  • Team 789 and 10 will get a chance to compete for that seven and eight spot.

  • That's the San Antonio Spurs.

  • That's Luca the Gone with the Mavericks.

  • That's the Warriors.

  • And that's Memphis.

  • And that's the Pelicans right there at 12 who are competing with the way Zion's playing, making his first All Star Game.

  • That will be one of the most intriguing things to watch that will build into the playoffs.

  • And Chef Curry, You saw him in the All Star Game.

  • You saw him with a three point shooting contest.

  • He will will his team to be into the playoffs by winning the playing tournament.

  • One of the best things to keep your eye on as we move towards the second half of the season.

  • Next up at three, the battle of L.

  • A.

  • It will finally be here key.

  • It will be here.

  • We will get a chance to see that this year.

  • Is it really a battle?

  • It will be.

  • I mean right now.

  • Without a D it will be.

  • It just won't be in the Western Conference finals.

  • We will see this battle in the Western Conference semifinals.

  • Look, the Clippers still need a point guard.

  • We talked about this.

  • I thought Cp three.

  • Yes, He has the Phoenix Suns second place right now in the Western Conference.

  • I would have loved to see him go back to the Clippers and play with the likes of Kawai and Paul George.

  • But with the way this is going to work out with what LeBron James is gonna have to do in the second part of this season, if a D does not come back to play, I think we're going to see the Clippers and the Lakers in the Western Conference semifinals instead of the Western Conference finals.

  • Can they get Can they acquire guard right now, though?

  • Is there somebody out there that would give them what they are missing?

  • Which seem the Clippers are the Lakers Clippers, you know?

  • Look, there's their names on the trade market.

  • I don't really know from a point guard perspective.

  • I don't know if there's a guy that can help this team go next level, but LeBron is going to go next level.

  • I know that for a fact in order for this team to continue to stay in the conversation for being a world champion again.

  • Two games tonight in the NBA.

  • Speaking of that number at two, the Sixers will finish with the best regular season record since the 4001 season but will still be edged out for the top see by the Brooklyn Nets.

  • Now look, the last time that season, 2000, 2001, they won 56 games.

  • Um, they're not gonna win 56 games this year, but it will be the damn.

  • Their closest thing.

  • They will have to winning 56 games.

  • The last year they won was 48 games.

  • I want to say it's 2004 season where it's really high.

  • I think they'll be around that range or a little bit higher.

  • Joel and be Ben Simmons will have to sit out due to contact tracing, but still this team is on their way, But I will say this still have the Nets.

  • It's a favorite, then getting Blake Griffin, I think, unlocks a lot of key pieces for the Nets with Kevin Durant with Kyrie Irving with James Harden.

  • KD still has that issue with the hamstring.

  • We'll see if that pans out.

  • But with the addition of Blake Griffin, I still think the Nets will have a better regular season record at the end of the day, but still 76 years on their way.

  • We will see the Nets tomorrow.

  • They'll take on Boston, and when you're running the point, I mean, what's the number one when you go one through five of the court?

  • The one is right to the New York City point right to the New York City market.

  • Number one.

  • The Knicks will not make the playoffs.

  • I'm not talking about making the play in tournament.

  • They will make the play in tournament.

  • But man, right now their fifth in the East in the second half, begins a really difficult stretch for them.

  • They had a favorable schedule in the first stretch.

  • Now I'm not knocking the Knicks.

  • I love the fact that the Knicks are in the playoff hunt.

  • They deserve to be there.

  • Julius Randle playing out of his mind and All Star.

  • I love this for this team.

  • Tips.

  • I want to see tips sign, but they begin the second half against the Milwaukee Bucks against the Brooklyn Nets against the 76 years they have a tough schedule in the month of May, a six game stretch where they go in the West Coast swing play against the Lakers.

  • The sons.

  • The Clippers are really difficult run down the stretch.

  • I think the Knicks very, very typical of the way tips plays younger teams.

  • Their legs get heavy in the second half of the season.

  • I think a little bit of that shimmer starts to rub off, and I think we see the Knicks fall a little bit in the second half and they don't close the deal at the end of the playing tournament, and that is running the point real quick on that.

  • Not that we're putting them in the playoffs.

  • I mean, they're one game about 500 like you said in the lost fifth in the East right now, but if you look at the loss column.

  • It's it gets a little dicey when you look at the loss column.

  • Um, what would it mean for the NBA just to have them in?

  • Even if it's just a play in game one round, get a little buzz?

  • And then how much would it mean if they if they were to just miss out?

  • Well, I mean, look, the playing term is what we talked about.

  • So right now, teams that are 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th are currently Charlotte, Toronto, Chicago and the Pacers.

  • So if you're telling me that Charlotte's make Charlotte's into playing game, get lamelo ball, you got the Tampa Bay Raptors.

  • The storyline to follow Indiana is actually gonna get Caris Levert back.

  • We'll see when T.

  • J Warren comes back, but they've already been hovering around that level to a Domantas Sabonis all star.

  • So look, there'll be a lot of teams in that bucket.

  • I think the playing tournament once again in the East and the West because the Knicks, I think we'll come back down to reality.

  • Miami is getting.

  • They're playing well, like the Knicks are 1918 right now, with that's very difficult second half of the season.

  • If they're still in the playing tournament, it will be intriguing to watch.
