She sees she does say in how we can't then Jamison and on Sports Radio or K have change from. Welcome back. Our number two just say in Japanese Chaman. Wichita State just to stop. Against Missouri State took over in Springfield we'll have our eye on this on that game. But we're gonna play this game right now Jane no one is that we've got a game. We've always got a game how happy in my right now how happy in my right now like that I'll be in my that's a bit now NASA Heidelberg game mask you get into. Other people's heads what they're not happy guy well Democrats say it's kind of one to two generating so no 1 would be I am extremely unhappy and of course at ten I'm ecstatically happy. I could not be happier lender for three. Say the thing with Al Al watching what just names are state and here's the deal. Never told me not to do their daily and we are able to play by play if we're stepping on my but the point is Missouri State plane is up. Against the team who is currently sixth in the country in three point oh that's not very Smart that's that's not surprising with so I think it's an open look for three and I can't be a spoiler alert. And I he made it okay. Here ago how happy in my right now on Bill Self how happy Amare right now you like. It's that I'm I'm moderately happy you're pretty happy your team won a conference champions I'm going to be good and a little while he's in need yeah. In the NCAA tournament but what it tumultuous. Year this has been for your program right that everything that could. Caused some controversy Qaeda has now off the court stuff has not been pretty. Josh Jackson has been a fantastic. Player begin himself in that trouble is not a great look Carlton Bragg has been suspended and come back he has suspended and come back. What's that I mean I'm not very happy with the off the court business. But on the core product. They yeah they've they've just come they've come through that looks like a one in ten are bouncing out to be a five probably towards a guy I would say that that's a fair assessment of the situation so far. But this is a team that can win a national title. So. I'd. I don't know you hate to put that above like the real life and right. These room. Real situations that these players are and that are aside from basketball but he is the basketball coach so I imagine he's pretty happy. And he hasn't had to suspend anybody indefinitely and there's been no legal charges actually filed so I guess okay so probably more like a seven or eight that you can't talk yourself into a better ranking ever bills are just Jackson that charges they were dismissed demeanor well charges turn. How happy Amare and now we talked about this a little bit earlier found DeMarcus Cousins how happy in my to be out of Sacramento and blames violence for anything new like rule wanna be in Sacramento I was what he's saying use. Probably Hillary so he's he's he's not happy he's less happy than he is happy I don't always maybe. He's made yes we talked to mark its cousins and Leon the cabinet but not from his perspective. We talked about the kings we talked about that the fact that. You know they they didn't get enough back in body and all at this it would actually talk about DeMarcus Cousins himself fading on. New Orleans where I don't know if he fits on New Orleans Stephen resign well we don't you said he did I think he does but if he doesn't. We already talked about the Los Angeles Lakers. And would they not make a play regardless I got to play for bogey Betty that's dangerous play alongside Randall and really wants to be most volatile player in the league to be the face of your franchise in LA of all places in in. The bright bright lights yeah glitz and all that the glamour he hates the clippers and I'd be a nice little over a got to drop my hates Chris ball. How happy Amare right now I'm Adam silver. Why would he be happy not. But the with the NBA in its current state is is is out and so we're happy with this serious state of the league of serve Adam Silverstein. Okay other is that they have any particular reason and what if I don't know didn't have any particular reason did I'm at a school or some but I don't have that particular reason be unhappy but just in general can and I'm also gonna askew I ask you kind of a may be a tandem question that. OK who's happier between. Rob Manfred and Adam silver. Who's happier now with the state of their respective I think both games are doing just fine how well the callously any major problems with any other sport are both happy and Roger Goodell. No Roger Goodell to make him a crazy about money if they'll probably the happiness of hate Danny any person on the planet or even as he has declining TV ratings are cash churn out of that. He still didn't want foreign million a year and it's just it's a ridiculous it's ridiculous. All right moving on from commissioners you you don't seem to gauge their happiness. Well I mean in my I don't know I don't not answer Aqua connect well here's here's one here's one for Adam silver is probably quite happy I don't know here's a sneak you enforce all I wanna have this conversation now. Now you wanna have an idea as you blow it he said valued at Verizon now that it is the stubborn side of me makes it makes me wanna have that conversation but I don't know how happy why why would Adam silver be any happier now than it was two years ago I just say he's not but it and ask you about in two years ago. It's heads had cats and that's where a threat that's there and that's where we are that's where we are there I. I personally think he has to be pretty. Pretty ecstatic. With the stat with the status of his link. Clearly though these deals are seemed to be lower than doing fine to me it seemed like every week did sports is healthy right now it does seem that way I mean there's if it does in other issues it's that I. Concede I thought something with pace of with the they were debating the other day regarding. Speeding up the games and how that's gonna look and what that's gonna do in baseball and how. Meant overall have that conversation with me on my game back not cash within their natural will do at a heated. Conversation yesterday on the drive drank about the rule change that's come down in baseball this week about. Intentional walks. Yeah where do you stand I hate it you hate hated our how how did. You're pops have a disagreeing. Sentiment that than just it's it's. He should be able to just call for no I disagree employee how many wild pitches have their and care about the wild page I get that argument that was that would be an argument that I would also make. My primary argument. Is if you are messing with the fact that four balls is a walk it seems like anything else can be on the table and in future negotiations for rule changes here's what more balls is a walk here here and I would here's what I would also argue if we're treating things as automatic. Why do you have to run the bases after home run. Right. Marty after on the basis like another big hit to center field. Why does anybody know I mean why does anybody have to run the bases on a home run that's the one exception because and I any other hit you could be thrown out he can't be thrown out on a home run so if you have the big if you get a Grand Slam. Why don't all three guys that are on base just run off the field and more states than time right and that's that's Tippett. We're saving thirty seconds from a guy trotting around the base is you hit a home run you get to run the bases you have to throw before wild pitches. The four balls. To get a boardwalk I. It's an intentional walk because he's intentionally throwing the ball outside right to strike zone right. Right I agree that completely Larry intention is you have to throw the ball died could not agree more. I'm with you a 100000%. It's. It's kind of taking away from and again the fundamental role of the game that for both of a walk and if you miss it you this year intentional walk. They can actually hit it. People have gotten hits off the ball a bit strayed back into the zone thrown at sixty miles an hour or whatever and writers. So it actually makes you work for it it actually makes you do you're you know and yes it's awkward and sort of weird. But what if he wasn't there yet there was a minor league game several years ago YouTube clip is is is widely viewed. Where the the guy who loses a game. Because he wild pitches happened wild pitches balls that flowed into the strike zone. The desert these are these are things occurrences. But the main thing for me is that four balls as the walked period right there's no other scenario and hit just point to first base. And say I want to. You know I wanna put back guy it's a week you can't do that the week's solution to what I believe is a non problem. I believe it's a problem but there's easier ways to fix that problem I guess pitch clock. And actual enforceable. Pitch clock doesn't that bring in injuries though now is not our recent pictures to now it doesn't force and the rest it's not unreasonable at all. At all. Or you actually enforced the rules that are on the books about stepping out and all that's that is only you do that I don't think you problem. Aaron how happy and mine has this little bit of a sneaky ones I'm John cal Perry. How happy in my right now this pretty happy. He's got the best job maybe in college basketball and yeah but in my. When am I getting get tired of constantly having to recruit a whole new class of freshman every year they might get tired everybody's also really get added I wanna go don't wanna go coach. My guys. Good DN AD when they fire Al gentry though I wanna go coach in the league they're gonna fire Alvin Gentry after one year yeah. Because it could Ian because boogie and maybe you're gonna go we want our guy cow. I was on Dan Patrick and said that's not gonna happen and so. In the middle of a season. Course you can say that's not gonna happen he's going to be the next pelicans amassed in this happy. I've bottles see any reason to be unhappy company that freak in Kentucky are trying to our but he doesn't have any aspirations to to go to them admittedly MBA. China didn't do well not maybe as desperation maybe doesn't I think. He's in the best spot for him and he's like a nine he's not going he's not going anywhere. Probably not OK I was just thinking though. If bill so four to go to the NBA is he the next coach at Kansas now absolutely and a K you will stay inside of the tree as they have attorney Danny Manning each. Winner Mark Turgeon. Would be the first two names on the list really over John Calipari used by the way why would you leave Kentucky to dedicate I don't know step up its he's b.s in the jury is say intelligent as you say you're looking for a tree guy you can say Kentucky isn't this the best job. So why would you believe I could get the job guy it is the best. It is the best job in college that's intact yes I North Carolina would be up and just Kansas is like fit. Noelle yes it can't discuss the NCAA tournament every year duke Carolina Kentucky those of three K you would be fourth and Acker. I'm not sure about that guy I'm sorry Kate you but your probably fourth and I hate using the tournament every year Carolina Kentucky duke those other all of that in this pool tournaments ever you days and only. Palau win. Duke missed. A time or 220 years ago. And of pointy ears hey you didn't. Yeah. Okay. That's a charge anyway so how happy Amare right now Bryce Harper. I'm Bryce Harper is pretty happy itself yeah he's playing for a team that's favored their divisions Awad the Washington. Nationals. Where does he get back to this year does he get back to being the two years ago Bryce Harper or are we gonna have a middle point. Well let's see I'll predict is I'll predict all of his number getting ready this give me that jas SA give me the give me a break down is closer than two years ago that last year OK because I'm losing Elliott 42 homers about it 330. Or sixty young Danish 649. Slugging. Last year down a 24 homers to 43 averaged 373441. Billet 35 homers drove it to 83. But they. Three. Both say for fifteen on base the guy and a 535. Slugging that's pretty close to the MVP conversation they're gonna be amendment. But he's not gonna have a year like two years ago I don't think so because it that's just. Not that is not realistic the better question about Bryce Harper is what is he going to be when he's thirty. Right is he gonna be the best player in baseball or is he going to be a broken down shell of himself because he plays. Just with reckless to then Ryan. So hard and crashed into walls and do yeah like that that are gonna get himself to crash and it. You know slide into bases and hurt himself and things are good well that's starting out early as six years knows how to in the big leagues. And take out any Trout and harper both sixty years Malik. Really not that we've already got that point in their 25 and 24 elite. What my child's going to be best for him baseball for the next. Eight years and as long as seat as long as he stays at this level he is his style place probably or conducive. But he's he runs and he gets after he's an intense players say yep I bet he doesn't stand any greater chance of injury than anybody else aside it's this boat sank probably and a so I'm gonna go. The domino agree with you harper harper gets back in and I think he. Stays the second or third best player in baseball for quite awhile. Back and overtake my trap. You're from a nine point 90 war season to one point six. Proof that hurts. They win made fewer games I realize that they added Daniel Murphy. They went from 89 winds. And 95 they donate they got better all around him. Think these are your vet when your best player loses they win you wouldn't expect to go six wins hire right so again war was a mean left. Thank you kind of look at everybody I don't know they added trade turn it away in the room areas that everybody else made a pitching staff counts as well you got to remember that Wilson Ramos had a nice year Daniel Murphy was cured if we had a great year so you gotta look at scherzer made good got hurt yeah OK yeah let's look at the rotation and look at the aware how how much better get a tour I get to a gang that. How happy in my right now and and you asked if somebody's we're going to be unhappy how about Jimmy Butler how happy in my right now but he's not and not happy you know I want him level guys. Is movies the best player on a team that's not going anywhere ever they just traded. A young guy. As in Doug McDermott who had a little bit of potential they just traded McDermott and Taj get put in they get that straight for the thunder run away. I like you for the thunder they're trying to they're trying to get to the you know maybe if make a running get to the foreseeing this cantor is back in their thinking without with that lineup and now they have some depth may be. They're thinking you know we can make around at this we can be the the four of the five or something and then and make some went up playoff series in three games out of the foresee notes that the public they're hoping to take our agent Utah before or else they're hoping to take over Utah mine and and get a home court yet the jump in Memphis LA and Utah ought to get to that spot right. But they're thinking well okay we got. Obviously Westbrook and now candor is back and we had some shooting in McDermott and some weapons around. Westbrook and maybe we get this done and and more power to on the didn't hurt them to trade on what they trade. And the Moro nothing Jaafari loved bottoming and how how you say his last name the job for you really and that we and gave her own scare anybody named job offer it. They didn't give up much so. I would say good on them. As we get straight to get on the today whenever they made two good trades now since derail left they picked a Victor Oleg depot. And now I got Doug McDermott it seems like there are no Kevin Durant. But at least they haven't just mail that in no other they're trying to find a young core that can work around what sparks talent. And and good for them each shooting which is McDermott gives them they'd they didn't have enough of that. And you're hoping that. All the depot continues to develop. And Kantor who's young and and under a long term deal continues to develop. And here you're just hoping not that your young corking get there and maybe somebody wanna come play with Russell the derby game they have some good young players summit that. They're probably the fifth best team in the last a Cadillac up I'm sitting I. I didn't do I've I'd like that roster they've done is the best they cut it. Which I all you can really tiger aren't we got a way yup yup the more I dobbs hit off the board know off the boards of Aaron. Sorry about that really will come back you'll continue my game's high 2 games I am I guess we yeah out we we have to get back to we have to get back to what would. Let's see what was you have done good I am not if you hit.
