Speaker 0 (4m 41s): Yeah, three 20.

Speaker 2 (4m 45s): I think it was what game five. I guess it was adjusted spreader. Just unbelievable. The, the, the level, the level of integrity we’re bringing to this NBA, play people, giving a shit to you guys sound like I don’t even know what it was in context too, but it’s like, you guys aren’t giving out. Good, good takes. And you’re saying

Speaker 0 (5m 5s): Funny, I get

Speaker 2 (5m 8s): It right? Like some guys are about the process. You get Philly guys are about the process, but some guys are about the fucking outcome. All right, let’s

Speaker 0 (5m 14s): Go trust the outcome. All right. This guy, you know him as one of the hosts of the NBA gambling podcast, the stretch for podcasts and in catch all is a bunch of writings over@sportsgamblingpodcast.com. Dan Titus. Dan, thank you for joining us. What’s happening, man. It

Speaker 1 (5m 31s): Is an honor. And pleasure to join you on this esteem occasion where we just witnessed potentially history for CP three oh oh whole bunch of other shit going on in the league. So happy to be here, guys. Talk about some hoops.

Speaker 0 (5m 43s): Yeah, no, it’s been a, I feel like we hit like a weird area. The injuries were kind of a bit of a bummer, but now, now we have a nice storyline of, you know, Chris Paul getting his first NBA finals. Sure. What are you going to put guest? Oh

Speaker 2 (6m 0s): Yeah. It took all these injuries for Chris Paul

Speaker 0 (6m 5s): And Chris Paul’s defense. He’s been injured a number of times already. Yeah. So finally he benefits from the injury. Well, Ryan, you mentioned the Sixers and not to get too distracted, but of course saw my tweet. It’s going semi viral right now. Ben Simmons. He bought a house in hidden Hills, California, and there’s all these nice photos of the house, the layout, a compound, I would say. And not in one square inch of that fucking property. Is there a basketball hoop? Are you kidding me?

Like at least throw as a fellow Sixers fan, throw us a bone and pretend you got a little, little mini half court, not even a full court, come on Simmons. And he spent 17 and a half and you don’t put a fucking cord on your God damn property. I would get, I, if I had that kind of scratch, I would get a basketball hoop, but I don’t play professionally. I can hit free throws at higher than 50%, but I don’t play professionally. And I would still, I mean, like I feel like Adam Sandler plays more basketball in the off season than Ben Simmons.

There was a casting call for Ben Benson for Adam St. Louis new movie called hustle, where they were looking for extras who were highly skilled basketball players. I think there’s a chance Ben Simmons wouldn’t have been cast as an extra in the movie because if I’m like, can you hit some free-throws? Cause we don’t want to be editing around free-throws time is money on a movie. Set. Simmons is going to kill him. I

Speaker 2 (7m 30s): Mean, he is moving LA is okay though. Cause he can at least head down to the Glendale 24 hour fitness and get a workout from a big shot. Rob a real winner. Teach him how to take a shot real quick, Sean. I don’t think we’ve officially announced this yet, but you, you just mused me into something w with, with the talk of Ben Simmons, buying a house where he’s clearly not going to be putting in any work. Yes. And the idea of a professional basketball player, not being good at the simplest thing in his craft, it makes me, it makes me want to step forward. And as an organization, as a brand, as a person, we want to show the world what hard work is.

And so for that reason, I’m sure Ben Simmons will be shooting free throws for 24 straight hours. But I play some announcement music. I will be drafting best ball teams for 24 hours straight. Yes, no breaks. Bathroom breaks. Maybe no, no nothing. 24 hours. Sean, give the details.

Speaker 0 (8m 26s): Starting July 13th at 1:00 PM. Pacific standard time, Ryan Kramer will enter the steel cage of drafting. And for 24 hours straight, he will be drafting underdog, fantasy basketball mania, two lineups, again, underdog fantasy.com, promo code SGP, and to get your free entry. And we’re going to be giving away 15 free live best ball mania entries in the course of the live stream. We’re still figuring out how, but I’m sure if you’re tuning in at 3:00 AM, we’ll just fucking give you one.

It’s going to be awesome and kudos to Kramer for, for spearheading it. I’m sure Kramer and you know, Colby and I will be popping in hanging out saying hi. And of course, since we are the sports gambling podcasts, you know, we’re going to have prop bets. So there is already a prop bet contest based on Kramer’s activities in the 24 hour studio. So we’re talking how many LaCroix’s will Kramer drink? There will be there’s an over under on that.

How many teams will Kramer draft? How many bathroom breaks we’ll cram or fall asleep live on air that said it a half. So we’ll see whether or not he falls asleep. And of course the tiebreaker question, how many players will he draft total $500. You can only enter the contest in the app as gpn.app. Get in on that.

Speaker 2 (9m 52s): We’re bad guys. Cause we went to underdog. We’re like, look, we got to give out lineups. We gotta give out entries. The fans are going to be clamoring for more. And we figured it. Why not? We’ll we’ll we’ll roll the dice. We’ll say you give us as many lineups as Ben Simmons, free throw percentage in the, in the post season. We really fucked that one up now. Sorry.

Speaker 0 (10m 11s): I thought it’d be a little higher, but yeah. So it’s going to be awesome. Kramer I’m sure will be delusional a it’s it’s going to be fun and it’s a, it’s a nice little publicity. Sun can get some heat on the network. And again, you’re not going to want to miss this. Jake pay Quinn in the YouTube chat already thrown out one beer per draft.

Speaker 2 (10m 31s): Maybe a shot is better, but I got to stay awake guys. Here’s the problem,

Speaker 0 (10m 35s): Right? You start drinking. You’re going to fall asleep,

Speaker 2 (10m 37s): 10 hours. It’s going to be 10, like 11 hours into this. It’s going to be midnight and that’s going to be the grueling stretch hours. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, I think are going to be tough. Once the light comes back up. Oh, I can’t see light in the studio. No, it’s going to be tricky. We might need to go get a clock in here.

Speaker 0 (10m 54s): We may have to talk maybe a massage girl, Vegas massage girl. You, you read, you read about what happens in these, in these prisons overseas, these enhanced interrogation. I swear they’re using the same lights. There’s an American flag. They’re depriving the person asleep. The only difference is you have a chance to win a million dollars. Unfortunately, unfortunately, for those other people, not so much. So yeah, that is that’s one of the big announcements we got and also a mega NFL week.

One contest, put that in your calendar, download the app.

Speaker 2 (11m 29s): But yeah. Sorry, Ben Simmons, you know he and well,

Speaker 0 (11m 33s): And one final note on the Ben Simmons thing, he got his house in hidden Hills. And I know this from like probably 13 years ago when I used to work construction, I was, I worked in that area and one of the Kardashians has a house in hidden Hills. It’s like the super fancy neighborhood in Calabasas where everyone has on their property. There’s like underground caves in the, in the swimming pools. It’s like all top notch. This guy is so thirsty that his ex you know, he got dumped by a credenza and he’s literally moving in to the neighborhood.

Like what,

Speaker 2 (12m 8s): For those who watched Ray Donovan, this is the neighborhood Ray Donovan I believe is supposed to live in. So I mean, it’s like, it’s the boot, but yeah. What is he doing? I don’t know. He should go to it. Like he should just post up in like New York city next to a, a court and just take free throws. Like that would make news

Speaker 0 (12m 27s): And Simmons working hours of straight free throws. Ben were challenging.

Speaker 2 (12m 31s): I think you’ve figured it out now because maybe he doesn’t want to work out at home so people can see him working out somewhere in public. Yeah. He needs it. Where

Speaker 0 (12m 39s): Are you at? And we’ll get, we’ll get into the suns and the Eastern conference finals. But where are you at with Simmons Dan?

Speaker 1 (12m 47s): Yeah, at this point, that shit was funny as hell. And in Kramer, you’re a maniac for doing that. Jesus Christ. That’s, that’s crazy with Simmons. So he’s not played in the, for the Australian national team. No surprise. He already said that he’s going to be working on his skill development. But honestly, at this point, what the fuck is skill development for a six, 10 guy that has been the league for four years and shot 34% from the free throw line and refuses to shoot in a clutch. Like I don’t, I’m not interested in your skill development at this point.

Like barely interested in trying to slide in, slide up into Kendall’s crib late night, along with Drake and his thirsty ass. Like that’s just, the thirst is real. It’s too real man. Like I’m not going to be surprised when he demands a trade in like probably less than a month,

Speaker 0 (13m 35s): Natalie. That is really what I’m going to lose. It is when he demands the trade. It’s the same thing with weds. You played like shit, you should be apologizing. You should be, what can I do to make this up to you? You wasted all this time and energy instead. It’s going to be like, oh, I want to add it here. It’s like, dude, what the hell?

Speaker 2 (13m 52s): I mean, at some point though, like NBA guys seem to talk and hang out. And at some point aren’t people like this guy is not good at basketball. Like I don’t want him on my team. And I would,

Speaker 0 (14m 3s): Are you wanting to get, get that guy backs money? Let’s

Speaker 2 (14m 6s): Hop in the time machine. Yep. All of these red flags existed in college. Right? All of them. Yeah. Tim give a shit about winning. Couldn’t even carry it. Like if you’re great, like Kevin Durant is the greatest example to me or actually Blake Griffin might be a better one, but if you’re that great in college, if you’re that great overall you’re carrying a

Speaker 0 (14m 27s): Team to not get the team into the tournament was

Speaker 2 (14m 30s): When you’re a plat. When you’re a build your team up point guard, Nino generational talent, you should be able to lift up a division one team like LSU, who’s willing to drop a bag here and there. So we discussed it back then, right? Like red flag. He didn’t even make the tournament. He didn’t care about missing the tournament. And, and at some point, right, like we joke about who was the kid who opted out from Missouri, Michael Porter, Jr. Like you make these jokes. Like these guys are constantly not wanting to get hurt for the next thing. But for, for Penn Simmons, you almost wonder if the next thing is that Kardashians or the next,

Speaker 0 (15m 7s): And I’m sure it’s good. I’m sure it’s good. But you can play basketball and still get, get tons of tail. There’s a world where you can do both. I’m sure. Michael Jordan had his share, you know,

Speaker 1 (15m 18s): Magic did his thing. He was just fine. Well, Chamberlain did justice. Here’s the, here’s what that bill. Here’s

Speaker 2 (15m 24s): What I’d like to ask though, is Ben Simmons in the corner of the locker room with the security guards, flipping quarters for money. Cause that little competitive edge right there. And I don’t think, I don’t think, I think he, he, maybe 1% of Jordan’s fucking edge. Maybe not. He’s he’s not Jordan beat him in one-on-one today. Yes. Yeah. Just strictly off hard. How was he still

Speaker 0 (15m 46s): Speaking of Jordan though? That was a, that was the last team the sons played in the finals and it was almost a, what are we talking in? 93? Yeah. June of 93. That was their last NBA finals game. Couple of other interesting nuggets coming out of the a son’s finals appearance. A teammate of shack had made the finals for 37 straight years, but that streak has been stopped because I guess the Clippers had Rondo and they needed to get in to keep the streak alive. A pretty crazy streak. Yeah.

Somewhat. I was laughing really hard. Cause some, some hideous, HUD Twitter wrote back, he didn’t play 37 years. You idiot. And the saddest part was how many likes it had already gotten? It’s like Jesus Christ. It’s always funny when dumb people are really defined and wrong. Well,

Speaker 2 (16m 34s): That’s generally a pretty strong correlation there right

Speaker 0 (16m 39s): Now. Dan, if you’re a sun sand and we should probably be asking rich fat baby this, but if you’re a suns fan, who are you rooting for in the, in the Eastern conference finals,

Speaker 1 (16m 50s): I feel like you gotta want the, the bucks at this point, you know, because you know, Jada’s his injury to me. I mean that hyperextension I’m surprised that there was no ligament ligament damage there because that shit look ugly. I mean, it reminds me of any time, like a football player, it gets like a, you know, a shoulder to the knee and it just bends them back. Like they’re going to, they’re going to miss time for multiple weeks. So I don’t see a path for, you know, Yanis to get back at least for, you know, a couple of weeks. So, you know, this series is going to be over in a matter of days. And you know, if you’re going to see a Buck’s team that doesn’t have their star player to me, I think that that’s the team you want to face.

This is the path. I mean, if Chris Paul was going to get a ring, like he has no excuses not to get it now. I mean, he went through all the injuries, you know, there’s literally no stars left, you know, that to really go through. So, I mean, at this point they got to win it. Yeah.

Speaker 0 (17m 39s): And I think, I mean, matchup wise too, and I’m with you on the injury. Like if he does come back, he’s, there’s no way he’s going to be a hundred percent. It doesn’t sound like as we’re taping Thursday night or Wednesday night here, it doesn’t seem like it’s an ACL. It seems like it’s this hyper extended knee, but still even if he does play, his minutes are going to be limited. And you have, you have Deandre Ayton to go at him. You have a big man to like, you know, take him to the hoop. I think the S the Hawks match up pretty well with them actually.

I mean, at least compared to the bucks, like you got Trey young who should be a hundred percent assuming they get into the NBA finals here. So, and you know, some of their role players and stuff like that. And just their style of play is kind of a similar, I think there’s some match-ups they would be able to take advantage of, but kind of coming back to some of the other stuff we’ve thrown out, we, and, and shout at the Jake in the YouTube chat. Cause he, he turned us onto this pic. It was had to been like a week or two ago, but Deandre Ayton at 60 to one to win the NBA finals MVP, which, I mean, you can really see a path to him having himself a game, getting you like 15, rebounds a game and playing some defense.

If let’s say there’s like Chris Paul and Booker, like not one of those two guys clearly dominates. There’s an, I mean, he’s like, you know, Andre Iguodala won the finals MVP. So the, the eight in case I think could be much better because, you know, ego, Dala got it based off his defense, but Aiden’s got a defensive role and the rebounding, like, I mean, it’s rare that I get excited watching a rebounder, but he he’s got a fun game to watch.

Speaker 2 (19m 20s): I think he’s got, I mean, it’s, it’s, it’s one of those things, right? Like you need that. You probably, it probably helps to have Yannis out there to give them the opportunity to shut down Yannis and have some monster double doubles. Otherwise like it Booker just goes off. Even if it’s only two or three games, he probably locks it up. Right. Especially if it’s, and it’s a shooting, it’s a shooting contest.

Speaker 0 (19m 39s): You’re right. In the Hawk series, I think for sure. But, and another one of the finals MVP we threw out was like, Chris, Paul, I think it was as high as 40 to one, maybe even 25 to one either way. I mean, the narrative is there just like watching this game, you know, it was clear like he, he was the guy he stepped up. I mean, if there was an MVP of this series, I think Chris, Paul May have got it. Even though he missed those first couple of games cause of how he closed it out. And there’s

Speaker 2 (20m 8s): Patrick, Beverly came out of the locker room with the chair and hit him over that at the end. That that was that’s when the crowd really, really started chanting soupy three, CP three,

Speaker 0 (20m 18s): CP three. And now I’m just still hoping that the sons don’t a winning in a clean sweep and then sons and four guys back, I want sons in six, six, so he can get the sons and 16 going. Let’s go. As far as the championship odds, the sons right now are minus 1 95 bucks plus 300 Hawks plus 500. I mean, I’m not going to go big on any of these right now, but I do. And

Speaker 2 (20m 48s): Before you say it, I’m just going to say three quick statements. One Yonis on a bad leg is probably not useful. Yeah, too. Definitely the worst coach left in the playoffs. And now he’s going to have to adjust everything he does versus my guy, Nate McMillan. I love the hot

Speaker 0 (21m 9s): And technically they haven’t removed the interim head. Coach tag, no respect, no respect. The poor guy got respect. So that’s the championship odds right now sun’s minus 1 95 bucks plus 300 Hawks plus 500. I don’t think there’s a ton of value in taking sons at minus 1 95, because I think whoever comes out of the east, they’re going to look good enough that it’s going to be, I don’t think they move it past like 2 20, 2 30 if they even move it.

I mean, I can see, I guess maybe in the world of, I don’t know, I don’t, I still don’t understand why Milwaukee is shorter than Atlanta right now. I mean, I guess they have home court in the Eastern conference finals, but I think there is a little bit of value at Atlanta plus 500. Cause I, I think if they move on, you’re not going to see that plus 500, I think it will be high twos, low threes for the NBA finals. Where are you at Dan with like any sort of future thoughts here, you know, as we look to the championship.

Yeah.

Speaker 1 (22m 13s): I, I T I tend to agree with you, man, because really, if we’re looking at the, the, the match-ups and, you know, even if Trey young isn’t there, I think Nate, Nate McMillan has proven that he can make adjustments to his rotations. And you’re getting people that step up like cam reddish, like the, where was this dude all season? And then it comes in and game three and drops buckets. We see that they’ve been using their bench behind Capella bogged. Don was finally getting into a rhythm after being hurt for the last, you know, since the six or series. So I think that this team is actually very resilient. You know, Lou will is a story about veteran that can easily rally the team and he can get buckets at any given moment.

This is the scariest team left in the, in the me, in the, in the playoffs. And I think if you can catch big, they’ve proven as an underdog story, they can catch the juggernauts sleeping. And the sons weren’t, you know, the Clippers were able to get a couple of games on them, right? Like without their star player. So I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that the Hawks can pull off another upset here, especially if they can get Trey young, you know, when game win game for potentially you’d take it in five. If Yonis is still not hurt, I don’t believe in the bucks.

And you know, yeah. They had the momentum going before that, that horrific injury. But let’s be honest here, man. Once Yonis went out, they were already up nine. Then they went up 20 real quick. So I think that the momentum’s with the Hawk. So getting them at five right now,

Speaker 2 (23m 33s): And that’s the best. And,

Speaker 0 (23m 34s): And we’ve seen this Hawks team steal a game on the road. I I think and correct me if I’m wrong, but they’ve won every game one. And I’m pretty sure they’ve all been on the road. There, maybe that first series I’m blanking, but they they’ve, they’ve shown an ability to win early in series and steal games on the road. So now the sons are gonna have a lot of time off it’s the first, see, you know, first NBA finals and so long for them. I can see them being a little over-hyped a little, you know, a little too juiced up, maybe a little rusty, and then you get this Hawks team coming in.

You’re already predicting

Speaker 2 (24m 8s): That I’m going to take Hawks when game one, Hawks Hawks winning game one hot series sun’s wind series is going to be an intriguing play, really like that. I just, you know, I think one of the things you also have to look to this time of year, right? Like this is, this is swirling con how did the soccer guys say control fuzzy can trap swirling through? I mean, I think one of the things that we haven’t really talked about is it’s important to have the irrational confidence guy on the team.

And we saw what kept the Clippers around was a little bit of that irrational conference from confidence from Morris. I mean, and apologies more senior. It’s very important that we call out that he’s more senior now, but I think you

Speaker 0 (24m 51s): Nailed it. Lou Williams is like, he’s

Speaker 2 (24m 53s): An all time irrational confidence guy who professional score. Right? Like he doesn’t know that he’s not the best guy on the court when he’s out there and he’s being told to go lead a team. So I, again, I think Nate McMillan is do, perhaps this is the all time like guys are do between the sons, Chris Paul, Nate McMillan, the Atlanta. I mean Atlanta. I mean, what’s Atlanta been up to other than hosting Alabama football games to start the college football season.

Speaker 0 (25m 20s): And of course that epic collapse in the super bowl. That’s like their last big game

Speaker 2 (25m 24s): MBAs, just like, yes, Phoenix and Atlanta, big time

Speaker 0 (25m 27s): Cities, baby. Some reps are getting yelled at, how did you let this happen? No big, large wait. We had two

Speaker 2 (25m 35s): LA teams and a team from Brooklyn, New York Philly.

Speaker 0 (25m 39s): They’re all gone. Yeah. Other one, one last nugget here on the sons. They’re one of only seven teams in history to reach the NBA finals a year after missing the playoffs, the 77 players, there’s 2002 nets, 2008, sell takes 2015 calves, 2020 Lakers, 2020 heat. And then now the sons, it’s funny how many of these are like kind of tied to LeBron here with the calves and with the Lakers, you know, basically just, Hey, your team sucks.

LeBron shows up you’re in the finals. It’s just that, it’s just that simple. So, all right, we’re going to get to a Buck’s Hawks game five. Before we do that, we’re going to this week’s installment of real men of DJs presented by prop swap.com, promo code SGP. Get that $500 deposit bonus. Here we go.

Speaker 3 (26m 36s): S GPN presents real men of DJ real man, DJ, we salute you Phil Mickelson.

Speaker 0 (26m 47s): That’s right. Phil Mickelson playing the rocket mortgage mortgage classic. And there was a story published where apparently Mickelson’s ties to a mob bookie who cheated him out of $500,000. His lawyer statement was great. Quote. He didn’t say anything in the story that wasn’t true. I’m not complaining about that said Mickelson’s attorney, but why, why are you going to embarrass Phil Mickelson, where he’s there to support you, your tournaments and the charities that support and the PGA tour that is a boss level of move.

Yeah, I got screwed out of 500 K from a mob boss, but dammit, why you bringing it up? That’s old school and that’s why he’s a real meadow Dejan. Phil Mickelson. Phil, what are you doing? Betting? 500 K with the mob. Like when you’re, when you’re talking that kind of change, get down at Las Vegas and hold onto that sports ticket. And if it’s going up in value, sell it up. Are

Speaker 2 (27m 44s): You asking why film insider trader

Speaker 0 (27m 47s): Phil Mickelson is he knows about finding value. If anyone knows about how to play the stock market, it’s Phil Mickelson and that’s why he should have used props swap. He promised his wife,

Speaker 2 (27m 59s): He wouldn’t do anything. So he wanted to stay off the, off the grid, little cash only transaction with Tony down at the McDonald’s.

Speaker 0 (28m 5s): Oh man. That is a, and that’s a bold move. Screw. And Phil Mickelson out of a 500 large.

Speaker 2 (28m 10s): Imagine Jordan was around. Oh man.

Speaker 0 (28m 13s): Yeah, those guys don’t need to be hanging out together. All right. Game five Eastern conference, final bucks versus Hawks right now, the a bucks home team lane to total sin and two 15 and a half tipping off here. Friday night, Trey young, probably gonna play. I mean, he doesn’t play piece. It’s still, I don’t know. Call me old fashioned, Bruce, rest, ice compression, elevation rice. That’s how you treat a rolled ankle and bone bruise.

Like, yeah, you’re going to get bruises. You’re a professional athlete. I don’t see on this plane at all. Now, Dan, it seemed like you were leaning from earlier that you, you said you didn’t believe in the box. Here’s what I’m, I’m worried that in the same way that Atlanta rallied around not having their guy at home in the, in the role-players carried them more. We see a similar narrative with the bucks come game five, but I’m, I’m waffling a bit. Where are you at with this one?

Speaker 1 (29m 12s): Yeah, I was, I was talking to about this earlier and I’m struggling on this line here a bit, because I do think that there’s going to be a lot of emotions here for the bucks at home to, you know, rally behind their superstar and play into that narrative. That Kramer talks about a lot. And you know, for me, I actually don’t really trust this game. If I’m gonna pay attention really to with Trey, Trey young is going to be playing. Cause I think if he’s in, if he does suit up, it’s definitely a benefit for the Hawks. But I liked the game. I like the over in this game to 15 and a half without Jada’s on the court.

I think that this is going to open up a lot of opportunity for not only the bucks to figure out their offense, but I think this is going to a ripe opportunity for Atlanta Hawks. They just have a field day, not only in the paint, but they’re going to be launching or quick, quick and early. So it’s going to be like a running gun type of office that I think they could easily clear, you know, 115 points because in 11 games, without Yonis this year, the bucks led up 116 points per game. So I don’t think that the defense is going to be as good.

And as a result, you’re going to see the Hawks come out a little bit better on offense. Yeah, no. And

Speaker 2 (30m 20s): This number assumes Trey, Young’s not playing, is that,

Speaker 0 (30m 24s): I don’t know. I mean, I would, I wish a weird number. I would assume if, if the news, I think it’s one of these numbers where they’re like splitting the difference on the injury news, because I think once Trey young is announced, that’ll play I D how are the Hawks not favored? Well, even still it’s on the road since

Speaker 2 (30m 41s): We started recording, it’s moved from two to one and a half. So, I mean, maybe that’s maybe they just dropped a, an early number and people,

Speaker 0 (30m 47s): Maybe they’re watching the show live on YouTube. That could

Speaker 2 (30m 49s): Be happening too. Yeah, I don’t, I mean, I like the overall angle. Maybe that’s a, that maybe that’s parlay fodder right there. I just don’t see. I mean, again, the NBA playoffs has been a, just nothing but narratives and storylines and I don’t think you can sell the American people, the Milwaukee bucks without Yonis. Yeah. And I think without Yannis, you know, the, the story writers for the NBA finals have decided in coma that it was all a dream. Yeah. I think the Hawks get the rose and advanced the NBA finals.

Sean,

Speaker 0 (31m 22s): You know, it’s one of those things. When the games though,

Speaker 2 (31m 25s): Do they just go bang, bang.

Speaker 0 (31m 28s): I man, here’s the thing though. If they win game five and Hawks and seven plus 700. Right. And I think I was on that as well. If it’s one of these things, if the Hawks win, how do they not close it out at home? Cause they it’s going to be the, the bucks are going to be so deflated.

Speaker 2 (31m 48s): I mean, I just, I think we’re overthinking what this Milwaukee team is without Yannis. Yeah,

Speaker 0 (31m 53s): That’s true. And, and some of the players will shoot better, but no Yannis. I, and I think Dan focusing on an important angle of just their defense relies on just Yon is standing by the rim and the Hawks have a ton of guys that aren’t afraid to go to the rim, get fouls, get, get some free throws up. And especially with Trey young plays, maybe he’ll sit back and shoot a bit. But I don’t know, man, without yanas in the paint, they’re clogging things up. I think they’re going to be in trouble.

And I, I just can’t take Milwaukee as a favorite without Yana. So that, to me, it, it doesn’t get any more simple than that. But I mean, yeah. Give me, give me the Hawks plus two. And I’ll even, I’m not normally a totals guy, but you know, I dabble, so I’ll go. I like Dan’s angle on the, over as well, Atlanta plus two over two

Speaker 2 (32m 44s): Question. Who, who benefits the most? If you’re honest, isn’t there in the middle. Like could we see a Mo a big Clint Capella game? Could, could he be a fun prop on high score for the match? Like, is there something more a degenerate we can do here,

Speaker 0 (32m 59s): Ryan? You slipped up. Cause we, this is our second podcast. You mentioned match. Oh, and we did our soccer podcast. So this is I’m talking, we’re talking games, just one gear. I mean, is that the angle? Do we do something fun like that? Yeah. I don’t know. Dan, I feel like you guys over the NBA, gambling podcasts have a better handle on some of the prop stuff. I know you’re a DFS Wiz. Anything, any match-ups jumping out at you? I like the angle and the Capella.

Speaker 1 (33m 27s): Yeah. See man. Capella is this. I would probably go for a Capella double double. I mean, I think that that’s a pretty safe bet. I mean, we’ve got his points at 10 and a half rebounds at 11 and a half. That seems extremely low for me. I would hammer that, that over. I mean, that’s looking at minus one 18 right now. So I think that that’s like your best bet in terms of like taking advantage of Yannis, but I’m waiting for some of these Hawks lines to drop. I haven’t seen much of them, but I was looking to see if bogged down by dotta Vich was going to be up there. I think we were going to see a better him, a better version of him if Trey young decides to sit.

So that could be a late, a late flier that you wanna throw out there as well as yeah. Brooke Lopez, like, I mean, if you really want to bank it, I mean, right now I’m looking at his line. It’s sitting at, let’s see here 13 and a half, pretty modest. So, you know, if you want to juice that up, play the alternative number and he gets the highest points. I mean, it could be possible because we’ve seen better at a splash mountain. Maybe he goes back to his Brooklyn net phase, highly unlikely. But I dunno, I think that this is a game where drew holiday is really gonna have to shine.

Chris Middleton,

Speaker 0 (34m 37s): Throw out a random just cause we’re, we’re talking Lou Williams, this feels like a Lou Williams game. Just guts telling me Lou Williams gets his shots. So I don’t know what his, I mean, I don’t know what his point total is. It’s not going to be massive, certainly. But I’m going to go over on Lou Williams points. I’m guessing it’s probably

Speaker 2 (34m 55s): Shock. Maybe 21 last game. I don’t know what

Speaker 0 (34m 58s): It was. It was, he had 21 last game. Yeah,

Speaker 2 (35m 2s): He was their high man. Really? All right. So maybe

Speaker 0 (35m 5s): He was the game. I’m going to stick with it. He really was. Okay. I missed that. I didn’t see. I didn’t think he went off that crazy. Yeah. I got one for you. I got

Speaker 1 (35m 14s): One for your Kramer. Brooke Lopez to get 20 plus 400. Oh yeah. That’s

Speaker 0 (35m 20s): It. That’s a juicy dog. I like that. All right. Well only

Speaker 2 (35m 25s): If it’s a positive Evie play. I only, I only dabble in positive Evie place.

Speaker 0 (4m 41s): Yeah, three 20.

Speaker 2 (4m 45s): I think it was what game five. I guess it was adjusted spreader. Just unbelievable. The, the, the level, the level of integrity we’re bringing to this NBA, play people, giving a shit to you guys sound like I don’t even know what it was in context too, but it’s like, you guys aren’t giving out. Good, good takes. And you’re saying

Speaker 0 (5m 5s): Funny, I get

Speaker 2 (5m 8s): It right? Like some guys are about the process. You get Philly guys are about the process, but some guys are about the fucking outcome. All right, let’s

Speaker 0 (5m 14s): Go trust the outcome. All right. This guy, you know him as one of the hosts of the NBA gambling podcast, the stretch for podcasts and in catch all is a bunch of writings over@sportsgamblingpodcast.com. Dan Titus. Dan, thank you for joining us. What’s happening, man. It

Speaker 1 (5m 31s): Is an honor. And pleasure to join you on this esteem occasion where we just witnessed potentially history for CP three oh oh whole bunch of other shit going on in the league. So happy to be here, guys. Talk about some hoops.

Speaker 0 (5m 43s): Yeah, no, it’s been a, I feel like we hit like a weird area. The injuries were kind of a bit of a bummer, but now, now we have a nice storyline of, you know, Chris Paul getting his first NBA finals. Sure. What are you going to put guest? Oh

Speaker 2 (6m 0s): Yeah. It took all these injuries for Chris Paul

Speaker 0 (6m 5s): And Chris Paul’s defense. He’s been injured a number of times already. Yeah. So finally he benefits from the injury. Well, Ryan, you mentioned the Sixers and not to get too distracted, but of course saw my tweet. It’s going semi viral right now. Ben Simmons. He bought a house in hidden Hills, California, and there’s all these nice photos of the house, the layout, a compound, I would say. And not in one square inch of that fucking property. Is there a basketball hoop? Are you kidding me?

Like at least throw as a fellow Sixers fan, throw us a bone and pretend you got a little, little mini half court, not even a full court, come on Simmons. And he spent 17 and a half and you don’t put a fucking cord on your God damn property. I would get, I, if I had that kind of scratch, I would get a basketball hoop, but I don’t play professionally. I can hit free throws at higher than 50%, but I don’t play professionally. And I would still, I mean, like I feel like Adam Sandler plays more basketball in the off season than Ben Simmons.

There was a casting call for Ben Benson for Adam St. Louis new movie called hustle, where they were looking for extras who were highly skilled basketball players. I think there’s a chance Ben Simmons wouldn’t have been cast as an extra in the movie because if I’m like, can you hit some free-throws? Cause we don’t want to be editing around free-throws time is money on a movie. Set. Simmons is going to kill him. I

Speaker 2 (7m 30s): Mean, he is moving LA is okay though. Cause he can at least head down to the Glendale 24 hour fitness and get a workout from a big shot. Rob a real winner. Teach him how to take a shot real quick, Sean. I don’t think we’ve officially announced this yet, but you, you just mused me into something w with, with the talk of Ben Simmons, buying a house where he’s clearly not going to be putting in any work. Yes. And the idea of a professional basketball player, not being good at the simplest thing in his craft, it makes me, it makes me want to step forward. And as an organization, as a brand, as a person, we want to show the world what hard work is.

And so for that reason, I’m sure Ben Simmons will be shooting free throws for 24 straight hours. But I play some announcement music. I will be drafting best ball teams for 24 hours straight. Yes, no breaks. Bathroom breaks. Maybe no, no nothing. 24 hours. Sean, give the details.

Speaker 0 (8m 26s): Starting July 13th at 1:00 PM. Pacific standard time, Ryan Kramer will enter the steel cage of drafting. And for 24 hours straight, he will be drafting underdog, fantasy basketball mania, two lineups, again, underdog fantasy.com, promo code SGP, and to get your free entry. And we’re going to be giving away 15 free live best ball mania entries in the course of the live stream. We’re still figuring out how, but I’m sure if you’re tuning in at 3:00 AM, we’ll just fucking give you one.

It’s going to be awesome and kudos to Kramer for, for spearheading it. I’m sure Kramer and you know, Colby and I will be popping in hanging out saying hi. And of course, since we are the sports gambling podcasts, you know, we’re going to have prop bets. So there is already a prop bet contest based on Kramer’s activities in the 24 hour studio. So we’re talking how many LaCroix’s will Kramer drink? There will be there’s an over under on that.

How many teams will Kramer draft? How many bathroom breaks we’ll cram or fall asleep live on air that said it a half. So we’ll see whether or not he falls asleep. And of course the tiebreaker question, how many players will he draft total $500. You can only enter the contest in the app as gpn.app. Get in on that.

Speaker 2 (9m 52s): We’re bad guys. Cause we went to underdog. We’re like, look, we got to give out lineups. We gotta give out entries. The fans are going to be clamoring for more. And we figured it. Why not? We’ll we’ll we’ll roll the dice. We’ll say you give us as many lineups as Ben Simmons, free throw percentage in the, in the post season. We really fucked that one up now. Sorry.

Speaker 0 (10m 11s): I thought it’d be a little higher, but yeah. So it’s going to be awesome. Kramer I’m sure will be delusional a it’s it’s going to be fun and it’s a, it’s a nice little publicity. Sun can get some heat on the network. And again, you’re not going to want to miss this. Jake pay Quinn in the YouTube chat already thrown out one beer per draft.

Speaker 2 (10m 31s): Maybe a shot is better, but I got to stay awake guys. Here’s the problem,

Speaker 0 (10m 35s): Right? You start drinking. You’re going to fall asleep,

Speaker 2 (10m 37s): 10 hours. It’s going to be 10, like 11 hours into this. It’s going to be midnight and that’s going to be the grueling stretch hours. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, I think are going to be tough. Once the light comes back up. Oh, I can’t see light in the studio. No, it’s going to be tricky. We might need to go get a clock in here.

Speaker 0 (10m 54s): We may have to talk maybe a massage girl, Vegas massage girl. You, you read, you read about what happens in these, in these prisons overseas, these enhanced interrogation. I swear they’re using the same lights. There’s an American flag. They’re depriving the person asleep. The only difference is you have a chance to win a million dollars. Unfortunately, unfortunately, for those other people, not so much. So yeah, that is that’s one of the big announcements we got and also a mega NFL week.

One contest, put that in your calendar, download the app.

Speaker 2 (11m 29s): But yeah. Sorry, Ben Simmons, you know he and well,

Speaker 0 (11m 33s): And one final note on the Ben Simmons thing, he got his house in hidden Hills. And I know this from like probably 13 years ago when I used to work construction, I was, I worked in that area and one of the Kardashians has a house in hidden Hills. It’s like the super fancy neighborhood in Calabasas where everyone has on their property. There’s like underground caves in the, in the swimming pools. It’s like all top notch. This guy is so thirsty that his ex you know, he got dumped by a credenza and he’s literally moving in to the neighborhood.

Like what,

Speaker 2 (12m 8s): For those who watched Ray Donovan, this is the neighborhood Ray Donovan I believe is supposed to live in. So I mean, it’s like, it’s the boot, but yeah. What is he doing? I don’t know. He should go to it. Like he should just post up in like New York city next to a, a court and just take free throws. Like that would make news

Speaker 0 (12m 27s): And Simmons working hours of straight free throws. Ben were challenging.

Speaker 2 (12m 31s): I think you’ve figured it out now because maybe he doesn’t want to work out at home so people can see him working out somewhere in public. Yeah. He needs it. Where

Speaker 0 (12m 39s): Are you at? And we’ll get, we’ll get into the suns and the Eastern conference finals. But where are you at with Simmons Dan?

Speaker 1 (12m 47s): Yeah, at this point, that shit was funny as hell. And in Kramer, you’re a maniac for doing that. Jesus Christ. That’s, that’s crazy with Simmons. So he’s not played in the, for the Australian national team. No surprise. He already said that he’s going to be working on his skill development. But honestly, at this point, what the fuck is skill development for a six, 10 guy that has been the league for four years and shot 34% from the free throw line and refuses to shoot in a clutch. Like I don’t, I’m not interested in your skill development at this point.

Like barely interested in trying to slide in, slide up into Kendall’s crib late night, along with Drake and his thirsty ass. Like that’s just, the thirst is real. It’s too real man. Like I’m not going to be surprised when he demands a trade in like probably less than a month,

Speaker 0 (13m 35s): Natalie. That is really what I’m going to lose. It is when he demands the trade. It’s the same thing with weds. You played like shit, you should be apologizing. You should be, what can I do to make this up to you? You wasted all this time and energy instead. It’s going to be like, oh, I want to add it here. It’s like, dude, what the hell?

Speaker 2 (13m 52s): I mean, at some point though, like NBA guys seem to talk and hang out. And at some point aren’t people like this guy is not good at basketball. Like I don’t want him on my team. And I would,

Speaker 0 (14m 3s): Are you wanting to get, get that guy backs money? Let’s

Speaker 2 (14m 6s): Hop in the time machine. Yep. All of these red flags existed in college. Right? All of them. Yeah. Tim give a shit about winning. Couldn’t even carry it. Like if you’re great, like Kevin Durant is the greatest example to me or actually Blake Griffin might be a better one, but if you’re that great in college, if you’re that great overall you’re carrying a

Speaker 0 (14m 27s): Team to not get the team into the tournament was

Speaker 2 (14m 30s): When you’re a plat. When you’re a build your team up point guard, Nino generational talent, you should be able to lift up a division one team like LSU, who’s willing to drop a bag here and there. So we discussed it back then, right? Like red flag. He didn’t even make the tournament. He didn’t care about missing the tournament. And, and at some point, right, like we joke about who was the kid who opted out from Missouri, Michael Porter, Jr. Like you make these jokes. Like these guys are constantly not wanting to get hurt for the next thing. But for, for Penn Simmons, you almost wonder if the next thing is that Kardashians or the next,

Speaker 0 (15m 7s): And I’m sure it’s good. I’m sure it’s good. But you can play basketball and still get, get tons of tail. There’s a world where you can do both. I’m sure. Michael Jordan had his share, you know,

Speaker 1 (15m 18s): Magic did his thing. He was just fine. Well, Chamberlain did justice. Here’s the, here’s what that bill. Here’s

Speaker 2 (15m 24s): What I’d like to ask though, is Ben Simmons in the corner of the locker room with the security guards, flipping quarters for money. Cause that little competitive edge right there. And I don’t think, I don’t think, I think he, he, maybe 1% of Jordan’s fucking edge. Maybe not. He’s he’s not Jordan beat him in one-on-one today. Yes. Yeah. Just strictly off hard. How was he still

Speaker 0 (15m 46s): Speaking of Jordan though? That was a, that was the last team the sons played in the finals and it was almost a, what are we talking in? 93? Yeah. June of 93. That was their last NBA finals game. Couple of other interesting nuggets coming out of the a son’s finals appearance. A teammate of shack had made the finals for 37 straight years, but that streak has been stopped because I guess the Clippers had Rondo and they needed to get in to keep the streak alive. A pretty crazy streak. Yeah.

Somewhat. I was laughing really hard. Cause some, some hideous, HUD Twitter wrote back, he didn’t play 37 years. You idiot. And the saddest part was how many likes it had already gotten? It’s like Jesus Christ. It’s always funny when dumb people are really defined and wrong. Well,

Speaker 2 (16m 34s): That’s generally a pretty strong correlation there right

Speaker 0 (16m 39s): Now. Dan, if you’re a sun sand and we should probably be asking rich fat baby this, but if you’re a suns fan, who are you rooting for in the, in the Eastern conference finals,

Speaker 1 (16m 50s): I feel like you gotta want the, the bucks at this point, you know, because you know, Jada’s his injury to me. I mean that hyperextension I’m surprised that there was no ligament ligament damage there because that shit look ugly. I mean, it reminds me of any time, like a football player, it gets like a, you know, a shoulder to the knee and it just bends them back. Like they’re going to, they’re going to miss time for multiple weeks. So I don’t see a path for, you know, Yanis to get back at least for, you know, a couple of weeks. So, you know, this series is going to be over in a matter of days. And you know, if you’re going to see a Buck’s team that doesn’t have their star player to me, I think that that’s the team you want to face.

This is the path. I mean, if Chris Paul was going to get a ring, like he has no excuses not to get it now. I mean, he went through all the injuries, you know, there’s literally no stars left, you know, that to really go through. So, I mean, at this point they got to win it. Yeah.

Speaker 0 (17m 39s): And I think, I mean, matchup wise too, and I’m with you on the injury. Like if he does come back, he’s, there’s no way he’s going to be a hundred percent. It doesn’t sound like as we’re taping Thursday night or Wednesday night here, it doesn’t seem like it’s an ACL. It seems like it’s this hyper extended knee, but still even if he does play, his minutes are going to be limited. And you have, you have Deandre Ayton to go at him. You have a big man to like, you know, take him to the hoop. I think the S the Hawks match up pretty well with them actually.

I mean, at least compared to the bucks, like you got Trey young who should be a hundred percent assuming they get into the NBA finals here. So, and you know, some of their role players and stuff like that. And just their style of play is kind of a similar, I think there’s some match-ups they would be able to take advantage of, but kind of coming back to some of the other stuff we’ve thrown out, we, and, and shout at the Jake in the YouTube chat. Cause he, he turned us onto this pic. It was had to been like a week or two ago, but Deandre Ayton at 60 to one to win the NBA finals MVP, which, I mean, you can really see a path to him having himself a game, getting you like 15, rebounds a game and playing some defense.

If let’s say there’s like Chris Paul and Booker, like not one of those two guys clearly dominates. There’s an, I mean, he’s like, you know, Andre Iguodala won the finals MVP. So the, the eight in case I think could be much better because, you know, ego, Dala got it based off his defense, but Aiden’s got a defensive role and the rebounding, like, I mean, it’s rare that I get excited watching a rebounder, but he he’s got a fun game to watch.

Speaker 2 (19m 20s): I think he’s got, I mean, it’s, it’s, it’s one of those things, right? Like you need that. You probably, it probably helps to have Yannis out there to give them the opportunity to shut down Yannis and have some monster double doubles. Otherwise like it Booker just goes off. Even if it’s only two or three games, he probably locks it up. Right. Especially if it’s, and it’s a shooting, it’s a shooting contest.

Speaker 0 (19m 39s): You’re right. In the Hawk series, I think for sure. But, and another one of the finals MVP we threw out was like, Chris, Paul, I think it was as high as 40 to one, maybe even 25 to one either way. I mean, the narrative is there just like watching this game, you know, it was clear like he, he was the guy he stepped up. I mean, if there was an MVP of this series, I think Chris, Paul May have got it. Even though he missed those first couple of games cause of how he closed it out. And there’s

Speaker 2 (20m 8s): Patrick, Beverly came out of the locker room with the chair and hit him over that at the end. That that was that’s when the crowd really, really started chanting soupy three, CP three,

Speaker 0 (20m 18s): CP three. And now I’m just still hoping that the sons don’t a winning in a clean sweep and then sons and four guys back, I want sons in six, six, so he can get the sons and 16 going. Let’s go. As far as the championship odds, the sons right now are minus 1 95 bucks plus 300 Hawks plus 500. I mean, I’m not going to go big on any of these right now, but I do. And

Speaker 2 (20m 48s): Before you say it, I’m just going to say three quick statements. One Yonis on a bad leg is probably not useful. Yeah, too. Definitely the worst coach left in the playoffs. And now he’s going to have to adjust everything he does versus my guy, Nate McMillan. I love the hot

Speaker 0 (21m 9s): And technically they haven’t removed the interim head. Coach tag, no respect, no respect. The poor guy got respect. So that’s the championship odds right now sun’s minus 1 95 bucks plus 300 Hawks plus 500. I don’t think there’s a ton of value in taking sons at minus 1 95, because I think whoever comes out of the east, they’re going to look good enough that it’s going to be, I don’t think they move it past like 2 20, 2 30 if they even move it.

I mean, I can see, I guess maybe in the world of, I don’t know, I don’t, I still don’t understand why Milwaukee is shorter than Atlanta right now. I mean, I guess they have home court in the Eastern conference finals, but I think there is a little bit of value at Atlanta plus 500. Cause I, I think if they move on, you’re not going to see that plus 500, I think it will be high twos, low threes for the NBA finals. Where are you at Dan with like any sort of future thoughts here, you know, as we look to the championship.

Yeah.

Speaker 1 (22m 13s): I, I T I tend to agree with you, man, because really, if we’re looking at the, the, the match-ups and, you know, even if Trey young isn’t there, I think Nate, Nate McMillan has proven that he can make adjustments to his rotations. And you’re getting people that step up like cam reddish, like the, where was this dude all season? And then it comes in and game three and drops buckets. We see that they’ve been using their bench behind Capella bogged. Don was finally getting into a rhythm after being hurt for the last, you know, since the six or series. So I think that this team is actually very resilient. You know, Lou will is a story about veteran that can easily rally the team and he can get buckets at any given moment.

This is the scariest team left in the, in the me, in the, in the playoffs. And I think if you can catch big, they’ve proven as an underdog story, they can catch the juggernauts sleeping. And the sons weren’t, you know, the Clippers were able to get a couple of games on them, right? Like without their star player. So I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that the Hawks can pull off another upset here, especially if they can get Trey young, you know, when game win game for potentially you’d take it in five. If Yonis is still not hurt, I don’t believe in the bucks.

And you know, yeah. They had the momentum going before that, that horrific injury. But let’s be honest here, man. Once Yonis went out, they were already up nine. Then they went up 20 real quick. So I think that the momentum’s with the Hawk. So getting them at five right now,

Speaker 2 (23m 33s): And that’s the best. And,

Speaker 0 (23m 34s): And we’ve seen this Hawks team steal a game on the road. I I think and correct me if I’m wrong, but they’ve won every game one. And I’m pretty sure they’ve all been on the road. There, maybe that first series I’m blanking, but they they’ve, they’ve shown an ability to win early in series and steal games on the road. So now the sons are gonna have a lot of time off it’s the first, see, you know, first NBA finals and so long for them. I can see them being a little over-hyped a little, you know, a little too juiced up, maybe a little rusty, and then you get this Hawks team coming in.

You’re already predicting

Speaker 2 (24m 8s): That I’m going to take Hawks when game one, Hawks Hawks winning game one hot series sun’s wind series is going to be an intriguing play, really like that. I just, you know, I think one of the things you also have to look to this time of year, right? Like this is, this is swirling con how did the soccer guys say control fuzzy can trap swirling through? I mean, I think one of the things that we haven’t really talked about is it’s important to have the irrational confidence guy on the team.

And we saw what kept the Clippers around was a little bit of that irrational conference from confidence from Morris. I mean, and apologies more senior. It’s very important that we call out that he’s more senior now, but I think you

Speaker 0 (24m 51s): Nailed it. Lou Williams is like, he’s

Speaker 2 (24m 53s): An all time irrational confidence guy who professional score. Right? Like he doesn’t know that he’s not the best guy on the court when he’s out there and he’s being told to go lead a team. So I, again, I think Nate McMillan is do, perhaps this is the all time like guys are do between the sons, Chris Paul, Nate McMillan, the Atlanta. I mean Atlanta. I mean, what’s Atlanta been up to other than hosting Alabama football games to start the college football season.

Speaker 0 (25m 20s): And of course that epic collapse in the super bowl. That’s like their last big game

Speaker 2 (25m 24s): MBAs, just like, yes, Phoenix and Atlanta, big time

Speaker 0 (25m 27s): Cities, baby. Some reps are getting yelled at, how did you let this happen? No big, large wait. We had two

Speaker 2 (25m 35s): LA teams and a team from Brooklyn, New York Philly.

Speaker 0 (25m 39s): They’re all gone. Yeah. Other one, one last nugget here on the sons. They’re one of only seven teams in history to reach the NBA finals a year after missing the playoffs, the 77 players, there’s 2002 nets, 2008, sell takes 2015 calves, 2020 Lakers, 2020 heat. And then now the sons, it’s funny how many of these are like kind of tied to LeBron here with the calves and with the Lakers, you know, basically just, Hey, your team sucks.

LeBron shows up you’re in the finals. It’s just that, it’s just that simple. So, all right, we’re going to get to a Buck’s Hawks game five. Before we do that, we’re going to this week’s installment of real men of DJs presented by prop swap.com, promo code SGP. Get that $500 deposit bonus. Here we go.

Speaker 3 (26m 36s): S GPN presents real men of DJ real man, DJ, we salute you Phil Mickelson.

Speaker 0 (26m 47s): That’s right. Phil Mickelson playing the rocket mortgage mortgage classic. And there was a story published where apparently Mickelson’s ties to a mob bookie who cheated him out of $500,000. His lawyer statement was great. Quote. He didn’t say anything in the story that wasn’t true. I’m not complaining about that said Mickelson’s attorney, but why, why are you going to embarrass Phil Mickelson, where he’s there to support you, your tournaments and the charities that support and the PGA tour that is a boss level of move.

Yeah, I got screwed out of 500 K from a mob boss, but dammit, why you bringing it up? That’s old school and that’s why he’s a real meadow Dejan. Phil Mickelson. Phil, what are you doing? Betting? 500 K with the mob. Like when you’re, when you’re talking that kind of change, get down at Las Vegas and hold onto that sports ticket. And if it’s going up in value, sell it up. Are

Speaker 2 (27m 44s): You asking why film insider trader

Speaker 0 (27m 47s): Phil Mickelson is he knows about finding value. If anyone knows about how to play the stock market, it’s Phil Mickelson and that’s why he should have used props swap. He promised his wife,

Speaker 2 (27m 59s): He wouldn’t do anything. So he wanted to stay off the, off the grid, little cash only transaction with Tony down at the McDonald’s.

Speaker 0 (28m 5s): Oh man. That is a, and that’s a bold move. Screw. And Phil Mickelson out of a 500 large.

Speaker 2 (28m 10s): Imagine Jordan was around. Oh man.

Speaker 0 (28m 13s): Yeah, those guys don’t need to be hanging out together. All right. Game five Eastern conference, final bucks versus Hawks right now, the a bucks home team lane to total sin and two 15 and a half tipping off here. Friday night, Trey young, probably gonna play. I mean, he doesn’t play piece. It’s still, I don’t know. Call me old fashioned, Bruce, rest, ice compression, elevation rice. That’s how you treat a rolled ankle and bone bruise.

Like, yeah, you’re going to get bruises. You’re a professional athlete. I don’t see on this plane at all. Now, Dan, it seemed like you were leaning from earlier that you, you said you didn’t believe in the box. Here’s what I’m, I’m worried that in the same way that Atlanta rallied around not having their guy at home in the, in the role-players carried them more. We see a similar narrative with the bucks come game five, but I’m, I’m waffling a bit. Where are you at with this one?

Speaker 1 (29m 12s): Yeah, I was, I was talking to about this earlier and I’m struggling on this line here a bit, because I do think that there’s going to be a lot of emotions here for the bucks at home to, you know, rally behind their superstar and play into that narrative. That Kramer talks about a lot. And you know, for me, I actually don’t really trust this game. If I’m gonna pay attention really to with Trey, Trey young is going to be playing. Cause I think if he’s in, if he does suit up, it’s definitely a benefit for the Hawks. But I liked the game. I like the over in this game to 15 and a half without Jada’s on the court.

I think that this is going to open up a lot of opportunity for not only the bucks to figure out their offense, but I think this is going to a ripe opportunity for Atlanta Hawks. They just have a field day, not only in the paint, but they’re going to be launching or quick, quick and early. So it’s going to be like a running gun type of office that I think they could easily clear, you know, 115 points because in 11 games, without Yonis this year, the bucks led up 116 points per game. So I don’t think that the defense is going to be as good.

And as a result, you’re going to see the Hawks come out a little bit better on offense. Yeah, no. And

Speaker 2 (30m 20s): This number assumes Trey, Young’s not playing, is that,

Speaker 0 (30m 24s): I don’t know. I mean, I would, I wish a weird number. I would assume if, if the news, I think it’s one of these numbers where they’re like splitting the difference on the injury news, because I think once Trey young is announced, that’ll play I D how are the Hawks not favored? Well, even still it’s on the road since

Speaker 2 (30m 41s): We started recording, it’s moved from two to one and a half. So, I mean, maybe that’s maybe they just dropped a, an early number and people,

Speaker 0 (30m 47s): Maybe they’re watching the show live on YouTube. That could

Speaker 2 (30m 49s): Be happening too. Yeah, I don’t, I mean, I like the overall angle. Maybe that’s a, that maybe that’s parlay fodder right there. I just don’t see. I mean, again, the NBA playoffs has been a, just nothing but narratives and storylines and I don’t think you can sell the American people, the Milwaukee bucks without Yonis. Yeah. And I think without Yannis, you know, the, the story writers for the NBA finals have decided in coma that it was all a dream. Yeah. I think the Hawks get the rose and advanced the NBA finals.

Sean,

Speaker 0 (31m 22s): You know, it’s one of those things. When the games though,

Speaker 2 (31m 25s): Do they just go bang, bang.

Speaker 0 (31m 28s): I man, here’s the thing though. If they win game five and Hawks and seven plus 700. Right. And I think I was on that as well. If it’s one of these things, if the Hawks win, how do they not close it out at home? Cause they it’s going to be the, the bucks are going to be so deflated.

Speaker 2 (31m 48s): I mean, I just, I think we’re overthinking what this Milwaukee team is without Yannis. Yeah,

Speaker 0 (31m 53s): That’s true. And, and some of the players will shoot better, but no Yannis. I, and I think Dan focusing on an important angle of just their defense relies on just Yon is standing by the rim and the Hawks have a ton of guys that aren’t afraid to go to the rim, get fouls, get, get some free throws up. And especially with Trey young plays, maybe he’ll sit back and shoot a bit. But I don’t know, man, without yanas in the paint, they’re clogging things up. I think they’re going to be in trouble.

And I, I just can’t take Milwaukee as a favorite without Yana. So that, to me, it, it doesn’t get any more simple than that. But I mean, yeah. Give me, give me the Hawks plus two. And I’ll even, I’m not normally a totals guy, but you know, I dabble, so I’ll go. I like Dan’s angle on the, over as well, Atlanta plus two over two

Speaker 2 (32m 44s): Question. Who, who benefits the most? If you’re honest, isn’t there in the middle. Like could we see a Mo a big Clint Capella game? Could, could he be a fun prop on high score for the match? Like, is there something more a degenerate we can do here,

Speaker 0 (32m 59s): Ryan? You slipped up. Cause we, this is our second podcast. You mentioned match. Oh, and we did our soccer podcast. So this is I’m talking, we’re talking games, just one gear. I mean, is that the angle? Do we do something fun like that? Yeah. I don’t know. Dan, I feel like you guys over the NBA, gambling podcasts have a better handle on some of the prop stuff. I know you’re a DFS Wiz. Anything, any match-ups jumping out at you? I like the angle and the Capella.

Speaker 1 (33m 27s): Yeah. See man. Capella is this. I would probably go for a Capella double double. I mean, I think that that’s a pretty safe bet. I mean, we’ve got his points at 10 and a half rebounds at 11 and a half. That seems extremely low for me. I would hammer that, that over. I mean, that’s looking at minus one 18 right now. So I think that that’s like your best bet in terms of like taking advantage of Yannis, but I’m waiting for some of these Hawks lines to drop. I haven’t seen much of them, but I was looking to see if bogged down by dotta Vich was going to be up there. I think we were going to see a better him, a better version of him if Trey young decides to sit.

So that could be a late, a late flier that you wanna throw out there as well as yeah. Brooke Lopez, like, I mean, if you really want to bank it, I mean, right now I’m looking at his line. It’s sitting at, let’s see here 13 and a half, pretty modest. So, you know, if you want to juice that up, play the alternative number and he gets the highest points. I mean, it could be possible because we’ve seen better at a splash mountain. Maybe he goes back to his Brooklyn net phase, highly unlikely. But I dunno, I think that this is a game where drew holiday is really gonna have to shine.

Chris Middleton,

Speaker 0 (34m 37s): Throw out a random just cause we’re, we’re talking Lou Williams, this feels like a Lou Williams game. Just guts telling me Lou Williams gets his shots. So I don’t know what his, I mean, I don’t know what his point total is. It’s not going to be massive, certainly. But I’m going to go over on Lou Williams points. I’m guessing it’s probably

Speaker 2 (34m 55s): Shock. Maybe 21 last game. I don’t know what

Speaker 0 (34m 58s): It was. It was, he had 21 last game. Yeah,

Speaker 2 (35m 2s): He was their high man. Really? All right. So maybe

Speaker 0 (35m 5s): He was the game. I’m going to stick with it. He really was. Okay. I missed that. I didn’t see. I didn’t think he went off that crazy. Yeah. I got one for you. I got

Speaker 1 (35m 14s): One for your Kramer. Brooke Lopez to get 20 plus 400. Oh yeah. That’s

Speaker 0 (35m 20s): It. That’s a juicy dog. I like that. All right. Well only

Speaker 2 (35m 25s): If it’s a positive Evie play. I only, I only dabble in positive Evie place.
