Coming back to the news talking sports leader. God created 870 WWL. And now WWL on FM 1053. Sports talk sports talk 50426018748668890. Wait seventy. And welcome back back to the phone to go to his go to John phone -- to John thank you for calling WW well. There are good a rights have not our comments are rather normal want to I think they had been here. Like your -- Gardner not changed already wish that -- what Jon Claude. Yeah I was supposed to be he was that was supposed to be a role guy he was going to be -- finish ovals. Yeah yeah we're not finished cherry is likely liberalisation. Of the film. I don't concern about it I notice -- commissioner could not do it under substitution pattern and it got there yet on the bench yet. Bet I think I think they needed it at all I think I missed the coach's fault here and. And that -- administration. -- all of them -- a hundred dollars and more eliminate them look at. Had. And I know they've needed them on the border that's really what got that framework for my life not a literary belted out -- that top. Situation. But look at it what does the fact there. -- -- -- -- venture. That can catch up with some bad. Off. Not Kim I know won't -- onion you know and I'm not up up and play Obama's doing and we've spent a lot of money get a lot of -- But I don't know -- -- guys that -- the valuation of I'll give people they were eating it. You know just it's. Our identity out sort of original manager and a coach Figueroa about two inches tall. Can't watch -- multi hit good golf and we can't form -- -- -- won't count trouble and -- you hate it. -- -- -- -- -- -- After a lot a lot of people familiar spot you're good guy hey I've got more confident out there and you've had a couple don't appear to all. Your coach them and then all of that is -- them. John thank you very much I appreciate the call let's go to Steve column of basketball inside as he covered the NBA for -- basketball insiders. Aside ST thank you so much so for the time and you know. So what what are you -- mean I know Vanessa was make of these what they've had a lot of injuries but I mean what grade do you give the -- this season. Well I I think they failed to -- -- -- and the objective was to make playoff and I think that if you talk to -- fans can talk to Barney Williams. You almost make in the playoffs you're good and I felt they cut out to -- relax I don't think he had any delusions of being. A team that was contending for a championship. But when you look at where the Phoenix Suns were. Twelve months ago -- where they are today -- -- -- -- supposed to be actual all the money was spent -- -- -- -- -- -- the -- can remove -- and the taking on a long term salary was about it was about -- to the post here and I think he can skate injuries hurt but you know -- -- Q you know they -- here but -- to a new entry for quite some time. They're not the most feet -- in terms as of quality veteran so I I think you get cap. Have to look around the corner we think he paid after your first -- and he didn't get there so I don't think they'll give him an F. But I certainly think -- -- talking about a -- -- high you can't I think because you know just make it a little bit of improvement wasn't the polish. -- now moving forward the pelicans pretty much married to it just about done -- that much on their roster they may be some faces that are here now. I'd better not -- here but. The whole. -- they're going to be easy as it is a fair. Hope is that maybe get an expiring contract format would it be some suited to take Forman and this is the guy -- his. Basically -- you know he was a good college player but he's not lived up to expect days in a pro. -- the wondering what Eric is the American League durable enough to meet expectations when I have those moments of being healthy what are. 23 week span you know he's been an excellent player is conditioned. I think he used to work together as one more and -- mind you'd think differ my game than he's had problems -- but it's like OK we've been many can make -- enough time to go get the other being. How long we have managed that. Does become a dynasty when everybody needs to be huge I mean you know I -- I'm knows I'm no strong guy but I mean look. That we will all be -- everybody's got to deal with stuff nobody wakes up in the morning feeling perfect comedian if you've got a history of being a dad is not durable. Don't sometimes you gotta man up and say you know what I -- play. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know the NBA game humanity keep your peers would air closed in Chicago and certainly we've been through it you know with Eric Gordon is there. You learned to play a hundred miles an hour -- yourself with the -- getting your body starts to break down you've got what we learned how to play began. At a piece that allows you to stay on the floor -- -- -- -- -- -- and trying to view. Although I think if you had to read the you know I don't learn how to -- any game and a different prize. Well I mean because -- -- go back and look I don't I don't blame him for that involves speed because the best fastest club to be NBA meaning that you may just up the bases last year. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- not even an option so we can't even talk about it but you know what we've got shorter contract now. You're going to be out of the airport contracts who really can you talk about an Indy contract I think we've seen it in the NBA they you know you can -- track for track you know Q how much -- Q will you take back. And I -- turn thinking about Eric -- did an amazing person but. When you talk about bad contracts if you're willing to pay back in equally bad contract -- -- slightly worse contract you can move on with anybody in the league -- you'll Mercury got traded to know what he thought that you'll get most you know Rashard Lewis got traded no one thought that. -- only and we game and we gave him what thirteen fourteen meaning of the well what we try to get to that both the whole idea you know everybody feel as movable depending on what you wanna get back into. You know I think -- being way too. The week you know going all the -- -- big -- can match airport and you -- athletic back there like that walk away get nothing in return because. I'm thankful we get some point this relationship and maybe when it could -- trade deadline. And you can expiring contract you can get something back for him but if you're kind of unfortunate a lot of money being spent a lot of cap space the entire. A lot of hope being pinned on a guy that you hadn't been able fail. Steve college basketball it's out of steam out of people follow your Twitter. We'll keep Tyler NBA to Twitter handle a few I hit -- on -- -- probably their feature back but do you believe we are getting into the fun part -- -- -- -- -- certainly wanna check out. So -- employer but a fastball in batter stock -- Steve thank you so much always a pleasure. Any comment -- all right this is for itself on WW.
