Automatic TRANSCRIPT

On on the rich Eisen show taking you to the top of the hour third final hour of this program National Football League is king so they steal headlines even when they probably shouldn't I don't know that there is anything that in clips last night's showdown from an entertainment value okay last night watching lebron James and the LA Lakers host the New Orleans pelicans are anonymous other than Zion Williamson it's not a playoff team right now they they would be the tenth seed in the Western Conference and there's no tendency the only get eight teams in but design on going head to head at nineteen with lebron James in the king's building the staples center in Los Angeles the best team in the west tenth best team in the west that's not a compelling match up but lebron James at thirty five going again sign on Williamson at nineteen and Zionism mmhm more the most must see TV right now in the league because we haven't seen enough of him and he's an anomaly in that body type to do the things that he can do that's the highlight of the night now that's bearing a different lead that was the best on court match of the night from a team perspective the Milwaukee Bucks at forty nine and eight went in and beat Toronto last night in Toronto to get their fiftieth win in fifty eight games and the storyline for the Milwaukee Bucks even though it's not sexy to the country Jana said that a combo in the box at fifty and eight the reigning MVP he is must see TV the problem here is third most can't identify the other members of the box the most of the national viewers of NBA basketball can't off the top of their head go which lebron and A. D. with the Lakers it's call why am Paul George with the clippers it's Jimmy and Russell with the Houston Rockets that's Jimmy harden and Russell Westbrook with Milwaukee then go Yanis but they can't even though he's been an all star two straight years Khris Middleton doesn't roll off the tongue is the two but if you go down Milwaukee's depth chart and you think of this fifty win eight loss team with Yanis and Chris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe and brook Lopez and Wesley Matthews and George hill and you watch the weakest link of this team you've got to go pretty deep to get to the weakest link this is a great team I don't know what we will be in a class because last year was a really good team that won sixty two times I think that one sixty with a sixty two and twenty or sixteen twenty two a year ago they're gonna win seventy times ishe this year and they serve notice earlier this week against Philadelphia and they serve notice last night in Toronto by the way in the back to back of of two nights of consecutive play and the bucs win handily in Toronto I think they will go unchallenged in the east it's not a great matchup with Miami but I don't know if they'll end up matching up with Miami at any point in the east regardless the Bucks don't have a comp in the east and they are a great story who is get it was getting under covered even though they've been on national TV a fair amount it's a great story did they make the a block of highlights last night on the highlight shows lately no the Lakers led the highlight shows because of lebron and silent and the box were second in the highlight package in Toronto the thing with you talk about all these tandems in the league and then there are some obvious question you can Yanis get it done in the post season can Chris Middleton be the guy that if Yanis is having a rough night or teams decide to try to lock him down can Chris Middleton be that number two those are all questions that need to be answered and I think those are fair legit questions but they'll be answered at the end of may and June exactly we will know those answers for a long time but what what I'll say about this is you know use you mentioned kawaii and Paul George in the brani di and there's all these tandems in the NBA that all fans can identify there has to be a level of respect given personal ten and you can have questions about whether or not they're fair questions whether I could do in the postseason but he's having a historic season right now and I know you probably don't want to hear that NBA fan but he's he's having and I I brought this up on our statewide show number times it's a fifty forty ninety club it's a fifty percent field goal forty percent three point ninety percent free throw why does that matter in my opinion well it shows a couple of things in my opinion it shows consistency throughout the course of a season that you're consistent enough to stay hot those are the I. D. outstanding numbers dipped to fifty percent of the foreign forty percent from outside the three point arc and then you add in the ninety at the free throw line is kind of a bonus and it just shows that you're really dang good to your consistent and you're good you're great shooter there are other guys who have done that in league history and some of the names of Krista Middleton right now this season in particular regular season I get it he's in the company of guys like Larry Bird we did it a couple times Kevin Durant Steph curry Dirk Nowitzki these are all fifty forty ninety guys so although I understand there are questions about Chris Middleton in the box in the playoffs and I was admitted right up top there fair you gotta you gotta start all you have to start putting Middleton in that same conversation he's having an outstanding season at least for the season he deserves to be mentioned as one of those number twos and a lot of people like to hear it but it's just real and that's the season he's having yeah he's a he's a he's a very good number two is a very good score he's a good defender not a great defender he's a good defender he's an excellent shooter any shoots any as a mid range game that most NBA players have abandoned they either take it to the three point arc or the rim and Chris Middleton's not a rim runner in not a rim finisher because he's not as athletic as most of the guys around the rim is not playing above the rim but it it strikes me as old little odd that statistically you're mentioning him in that category of the fifty forty ninety with bird and Durant and the Viet ski you know I grew up watching Sesame Street one of these things doesn't belong if curry too and Steph curry one of those things doesn't belong one of those things here's where you're wrong he the numbers numbers don't lie stats don't wanna first lie all the time you can create and spin numbers to lie in your favor regardless of what argument you want to make but obtain those numbers don't lie hi Scott I'm not going to disagree with you that that doesn't lie you have to work to get those numbers because not a lot of people in the NBA in the history of the league I have done that so that's where the numbers don't lie there's no stats bringing those are just remind me but I I I don't like the ninety nine to me the ninety doesn't apply to free throw shooting and I know it's important but the the fifty forty applies but there's a there's a bunch more guys the fifty forty that are in the ninety four other guys stats yes this year this year stats yester I'm sorry after the course there's a ton of fifty forty guys yeah all right just give some respect I do give him respect talking not talking to you I'm talking to the rest of the league the likes to forget Hey by the way tomorrow on the program rich Eisen will join us on the rich Eisen show he will join us from the NFL combine in Indianapolis where he's doing his day work with the NFL network and also getting ready for run rich runs a ritual join.
